The Rundown: Jinny Hex will have to embrace her legacy if there is any chance of Young Justice defeating their evil counterparts.
Jinny Hex’s history in her small Texas town showcases the simple life the future hero leads until she is confronted with the chest of items that will lead her on a path to being a hero.
In the present, Jinny is on the run with that chest as her evil doppelganger and the rest of the Evil Young Justice are coming after it and its mysterious contents. With the rest of the team fighting back and the intervention of Batwoman and her forces, Jinny is going to make some hard choices about the contents of the chest and how she’s going to use them.
The Story: A fun, fast paced issue that does a great job of showcasing who Jinny Hex was and who is becoming in the pages of this book. The dialogue is great and I always enjoy when Bart can’t shut up. The team dynamic is really starting to pull together for the most part. I know the story has to keep moving, but I wish there was more to Jinny’s story than was shown in this issue.
The Art: John Timms and Nick Derington do great work with the art. The visuals follow the pace of the story really well and I love the beginning and end of the issue a lot. There are s few panels that seemed a little too busy. They were filled with too much and it threw the pace off a little.
