Young Justice picks up its game after a series of fair-to-middling episodes. The team wakes up in the middle of the desert with no memory of the last six months. That period includes meeting and forming a team, which puts quite a crimp in their ability to work together. It’s even worse for Superboy, who literally didn’t exist six months ago and thus reverts to a completely feral state. Director Michael Chang pours on the “Hulk smash” action as the gang struggles to regroup and find out who did this to them. The eventual villain proves to be a bit of a dud, but Nicole Dubuc’s screenplay provides plenty of sharp lines and the action moves forward admirably. The only other hiccup occurs with yet another coy reference to the Cadmus conspiracy. It’s time to move that subplot forward if they intend to do anything with it. For now, however, “Bereft” constitutes a resurrection of the four-color fun that marked the earliest episodes of the season.
