Being a teenager means proving yourself over and over – to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and ultimately, to yourself. But what if you were a teenage superhero? How much harder would it be to prove yourself in a world of super powers, super villains and super secrets? Would you be ready for life or death rites of passage? Would you be ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis will find out as members of Young Justice.

The first season of Young Justice will consist of thirteen episodes, according to a representative from the network.

New episodes of Young Justice will debut Friday nights on the Teletoon Superfan Friday programming block, and will then re-air the following Sunday at 8:30am (ET). Young Justice will also air Saturdays at 1:00am (ET) as part of the Teletoon At Night programming block.

In additional schedule news, Batman: The Brave and The Bold will be temporarily removed from the Teletoon Fall 2011 line-up to promote the new action shows hitting the animation network.
