After much anticipation since its announcement back in April, the Young Justice cartoon is finally set to debut next week on Cartoon Network. Based on the 1990s DC Comics title created primarily by Todd DeZago, Peter David and Todd Nauck, Young Justice stars the teenage sidekicks of the Justice League, including such kid heroes as Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Miss Martian, Artemis, Speedy, and Superboy. The show's ranks will be expanded as it progresses, and will also include an impressive lineup of Justice Leaguers like Batman, Superman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, and Captain Marvel.

In advance of next week's Young Justice premiere, MTV's Splash Page has obtained the exciting six-minute preview clip presented at New York Comic Con last month. The video, which you can see after the jump, features most of the main cast and a good chunk of the Justice League as well. It's an ambitious project and seems reverent of the fine tradition of DC animated shows, so we will forgive the plainly incorrect depiction of the Batman operating in a serene park in broad daylight.
