Sportsmaster vs Black Manta:
You have to remember something about Sportsmaster he trained both Artemis and Cheshire almost everything they know and he fought Deathstroke "mano e mano" to a stand still so to regard SM as some kind of second rate fighter is pretty ridiculous. plus don't forget his fight with Black Manta was basically a draw and SM had two advantages. One was the element of surprise and the other was Black Manta being distracted by his fear of Kaldor's life being in eminent danger by Cheshire.
Aqualad vs Black Manta:
We knew this showdown was coming. As Aqualad said he recognizes his father's noble side and that he was conflicted about being a double agent. But at the end of the day he was fully aware that they were on different sides in the war between good and evil and he did what he had to do as expected of a hero on the Young Justice team. I think Aqualad showed an amazing amount of poise, maturity and grace under pressure as a secret agent against The Light. To suggest the Aqualad character is some kind of "uncle Tom" or a chump is to me just down right irrational.
Character development on the show:
There's a lot of stuff most anybody who's familiar with the DC universe could potentially complain about here rather if it's about Wonder Girl or Ras Al Guhl on the show. I would have liked to have seen more Amanda Waller or maybe an episode that was in part devoted to the Suicide Squad like they had on Justice League Unlimited. But you know what guys? they can't have everything on this show for every single fan boy and girl out there, especially in just 3 seasons! Despite whatever things someone might want to nitpick on this show over all it's very well written and clearly aimed at a more mature audience thank friggin god!
