7. Young Justice

Released on: 2012
Directed by: Jay Oliva
Starring: Jesse McCartney, Nolan North, Danica McKellar

Despite its title, Young Justice is not a direct adaptation of Peter David, Todd Dezago and Todd Nauck’s Young Justice comic series, but rather an adaptation of the entire DC Universe with a focus on young superheroes.

The collective — with Batman’s sidekick Robin leading the charge — lives in an alternate universe that’s completely separate from the universe of the Justice League, and no mention of the Justice League is even made, in passing, in the series.

Essentially, this is just a way of having kids see younger versions of the superheroes they’ve come to know and love over the years, but it’s a great way to send the younger ones a message about responsibility and other family values.
