Captain Marvel took over Red Tornado’s position as the group’s chaperone when the android was nearly destroyed in a battle. Operating with a child’s mind in the body of an adult, the hero was stuck in a confusing situation being around heroes approximately his age and yet having to be in a position of authority. Captain Marvel is voiced by high profile actor Rob Lowe.

In a similar fashion to Mother Box technology, the Super-Cycle is a living vehicle often seen employed by the Forever People. Young Justice come across another Super-Cycle and adopt it as a primary mode of transportation.

Rediscovered on Earth, Krypto returned to his master’s side. When Superman’s clone Superboy moved to live on the Kent Family farm, he adopted Krypto as his pet. For Young Justice, the team faced an army of genetically-altered animals including a white wolf. Upon defeating the Brain and Monsieur Mallah, the villains responsible, Superboy adopted the white wolf as his pet Wolf.

Sidekick to the superhero Icon, Raquel Ervin converted an inertia winder from Icon’s spacecraft into her belt buckle allowing her to manipulate kinetic energy as Rocket. Thus far shown as making cameos in Young Justice, promotional videos of the series show her as part of the team.
