Warning There Are Spoiler For Batman and the Justice League in Young Justice: Outsiders Below.
There always seems to be some sort of internal conflict with the Justice League in Young Justice. Between Season 1 and 2, you had the missing 16 hours where several League members fought- while under mind control- aliens in other parts of the galaxy. And now, with the new season of Young Justice: Outsiders, you’ve got some members, including the Batman himself, who opt to walk away from the League altogether.
So with this new season, you’ve got the Justice League discussing some new restrictions on them by the United Nations. Think like the Sokovia Accords in Captain America: Civil War or, to go even further to comic lore, the Superhero Registration Act from the actual Civil War comic book. And during this discussion, Batman states that the Justice League itself is no longer necessary, which leads to major internal strife within the team. Though keep in mind that Batman himself has never been much of a team player.
As Batman leaves this meeting, he invites other members to join him. And though it would seem that Bruce may be on his own, he does manage to get several other members of the League to follow him. These members include Batwoman, Plastic Man, Katana, Green Arrow, and others, including some members of the Batfamily.
However, while the Justice League may be divided, it turns out that there’s a long term reason for this. You see, Kaldur, now referred to as Aquaman, is now leading the Justice League in the new season of Young Justice. And this division is later revealed to be part of one massive coup against Kaldur. It remains to be seen what this planned coup could culminate in, but hey, we’re only just getting back into the swing of things with Young Justice. Knowing Batman, perhaps there’s a greater plan at play here.
But with all that said, what did you think of this sudden revelation from the new season of Young Justice? Do you believe the team will ever truly be reunited? And do you think Batman’s new team can last long term? Let us know in the comments below.
Young Justice: Outsiders is available now on the DC Universe Streaming Service.
