    Teen Lantern's story is brought to the forefront, and she really takes centre stage in this issue! The interactions between the team are, as always, spectacular. The group's as quippy as always and they really show the family feeling they've always had. All round Young Justice #20 was one of, if not, the best issue of this title in quite some time. I'm really going to miss this series. Read Full Review

    We even get a nice team shot of the entire Young Justice. There are so many of my favorites here! Why does this title need to end? Read Full Review

    There's no question that this is easily the most enjoyable take on a teen team in the DCU in a long time, although I wish it had gone on a lot longer and could have sent the team on more missions. It feels like there's a lot of untouched potential in this book that will hopefully be followed up on in a future title. It gives us the most important thing in any team"a group of likable heroes we're interested in rooting for. Read Full Review

    Given the success of the comic, I'm guessing we'll see the group together in one form or another going forward (although in the ever-shifting reality of comic book universes you can never be sure). The final issue pays homage one more time to what has come before, offers some fun banter, and leaves us wondering about the possibilities for Young Justice in the future. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Nov 3, 2020

    I feel like with Young Justice I always want more out of each issue, and I'm left feeling that way here. I wanted a whole extra issue dedicated to Keli, and another one just focused on Mount Justice. I do like that it decided to give the characters a place to call home, lean into the nostalgia a bit, and show them once more as the team they are. And while I wish it had taken a little more time to do those things, I do think this send off was successful in that I can easily picture this group going on more adventures in the future.

    No matter how much effort is placed into providing an optimistic tone, especially in an excellent final spread, it's clear this is an early ending that spun its wheels without any road left to travel. Read Full Review

    I was ecstatic that Young Justice was back, but this version of the team never clicked and it's probably best to put them on ice for awhile until a stronger creative team can truly do them justice. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Nov 3, 2020

    Young Justice #20 seems to set up a future series. If that is the case, I hope that it has a little more focus. Team books can't be this messy. Team books need to focus on a few members of the team at a time OR they need to have a smaller version of the team. Neither thing happened here. I know that Bendis and Walker had to wrap everything up in a few issues and so they have been trying to give the supporting cast time in the sun. It feels like what it is, too much all at once. I love most of these characters so I hope they all get a place to shine in other books. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 3, 2020

    Here we are at the finale of this series where little to nothing was explained about this group and when it was attempted, it didn't make much sense, but in this issue, Brian Michael Bendis and David Walker give us a spotlight on Teen Lantern, which would have been nice awhile ago, but ultimately you don't learn anything new here and the continuity is all screwed up with the decisions that were made for our finale setting. This finale, while it looks great is just like the rest of the series where nothing happens and nothing makes sense.   Read Full Review
