Hey, gang!

We remember how it all started for our YOUNG JUSTICE Team, how they had grown tired of being, and being referred to as "sidekicks."  Well, where did that term originate?  What does it really mean?  In case you ever wondered, I thought it might be fun to shed some light on this.  

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

SIDEKICK - A "kick," by Old English definition, was a pocket in the side of a man's trousers, not much different from a man's front pants pocket today (though somewhat deeper). Early pickpockets knew the difference between a kick, and a pratt (the latter being the backside pocket). The kick was difficult to pick, as it was closest to the skin. Over time, a sidekick became known as a faithful friend who, just like a man's pocket, was ever by his side.

- Karlen Evins - "I Didn't Know That"

As Greg Weisman says, "Stay Young, Stay Just!"

Cheers!  :)
