But we will likely try to prevent the fans from speculating on potential spoilers that could give away the plot. That means we can say that the main cast and characters from past seasons will remain the same.
What does will happen in Young Justice Season 4- 6 Comic Storylines?
Here are six comic book storylines from Young Justice and Teen Titans.
1. Monkey Business dump the team against terrorists
Depending on the first and second seasons of Young Justice, DC produced a comic book between 2011 and 2013. The comic book was beyond all the adventures.
The team moving to Gorilla City at the behest of Batman is one of the storylines featuring in the comic book. Sadly, the storyline didn’t welcome furry open arms.
2. Young Justice on a tour of parallel Earths
In the late 2010s, when the prolific Brian Michael Bendis moved from Marvel to DC, he decided to run several projects. After his duties in Superman, he reintroduced Young Justice under the Wonder comic line.
The team featured former members like Conner Kent’s Superboy, Tim Drake’s Robin, Jinny Hex and Naomi. Young Justice ends up in one of their early adventures, attempting to get back home.
In the attempt of getting back home, they travel through the multiverse. As the storyline contains the appearance of Earth 3’s anti-Young Justice powerhouses, it works well for the Young Justice Tv series.
3. World without Young Justice
To save his mother, Barry Allen messed with the timeline. The same incident in World Without Young Justice by Barry’s great-great-grandson Bart Allen.
However, the hero named Impulse utilizes Bart’s new power to create speed scouts to muck things up. Not only does it causes to change the Prime Earth version of Young Justice’s members, but it also makes Impulse a villain around the universe.
4. Titan Hunt changed the dynamic of the animated teams
From the new 52 eras, the storyline doesn’t relate to the Titans Hunt mini-series. It can be a 13-issue storyline from the second volume of New Teen Titans.
The Wildebeest society’s members take down current and previous Titan members remaining Deathstroke, Raven’s mother and Panthera. However, during this story arc, the team’s dynamics shifted.
Nightwing steps down as the Titan leader and starts calling himself Arsenal to make way for Roy Harper. The creators decided to implement this storyline in the Young Justice season 4 certainly rearranges the next run of episodes.
5. Graduation day can shift team lineups
As Superboy and forager joined the outsider, the makeup of the Young Justice season 3 is somewhat muddled. On the other hand, the heroes and other anti-light groups fall under the leadership of black-lighting.
They are using the Graduation day theme to clarify it more. In order to solve the mystery of a robot, the three-issue mini-series teamed the older Titan members with Young Justice.
The Titan members had to battle an out of control superhuman robot. However, both teams disbanded in the process.
6. The Great Darkness Saga can bring in the Legion of Super-Heroes
However, Darkseid is a significant player, but he hasn’t appeared much in Young Justice. Now, we can see him as the major player in the Young Justice season 4.
It is going to give a logical introduction to the Legion of superheroes. In 1982 during the Legion of Super-Heroes, the team of 31st-century heroes battled Darkseid.
However, it unravelled the villain’s villain’s rebirth written and drawn by the team of Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen. They tried to gain powers similar to Superman by bathing them in solar radiation.
