How Do You Know 032

How do you know when you've read too many comics? (NEVER!)

When you wonder why Robin, Aqualad, and Kid Flash are above suspicion.

There’s a traitor in the midst of the Team on Young Justice, causing for much speculation among the fandom. Many have believed, as do I, that Artemis is too obvious. I’ve heard M’gann or Superboy could be the traitor subconsciously, but I say it’s Robin.

*insert your laughter here*

Done yet? I’ll wait…okay.

In “Bereft,” the Bialyan military was ordered to shoot to kill the other members of the Team while Robin was to be taken alive.

In “Alpha Man,” Robin’s only defense for not being the mole was that he and KF have “known each other forever.” Uh, so…?

It is also Robin in that episode who needs to know why Kaldur kept the mole a secret—perhaps to make sure Kaldur doesn’t know he’s the mole?

Most recently in “Secrets,” Robin has an awkward expression on his face after Aqualad says there can’t be a mole, and next month in Young Justice #11, Robin will take the spotlight-right before the final episodes this season.

Of course, the biggest detractor from this is: everyone in the cave has a secret. Artemis’s dad and sister are the Team’s enemies. Miss Martian is a white Martian. Superboy was created by the enemy (whether he knows it or not). Robin keeps his real identity a secret. KF keeps his affection toward Artemis a secret. What’s Kaldur hiding?

In any case, the traitor will be known soon, and even if it's Robin, I doubt it's he's actually evil. The more pertinent question this week is: is Tygra?
