The Hollywood Reporter has scored a three-minute video clip straight from the floor of WonderCon that shows dozens of DC villains teaming up in an attack on Metropolis that will force Young Justice to spend some time this season hanging out with their older counterparts in the Justice League.
Recently, news broke that both Blue Beetle III (Jaime Reyes) and Lagoon Boy (a ’90s-era Erik Larsen creation many fans were surprised to see dredged up again) would join the team. They gets some screen time at the very end but are not featured here. Instead we’re treated to some sizzle reel moments for Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis–as well as their Justice League mentors, along with some Justice Society members and even Captain Ma–err, Shazam.
The villains get similar treatment–mostly, we see villains familiar to Young Justice viewers and Justice League Unlimited fans–but characters like Klarion the Witch-Boy and Lobo also make brief appearances, hinting that the “Invasion” storyline being hyped here will be a game-changer for the young heroes and the young series, which returns to the DC Nation lineup with new episodes in April.
