What you need to know to understand this story:
In the DC Universe, there are hundreds of superheroes and several different superhero teams. The ones that I will be using for sure in my story are the JLA and Young Justice. Mainly Young Justice. There are two other teams, the JSA and the Titans, which I might mention along the line, and if I do, I’ll explain them then. If you want more complete details about these characters then I give here you can check out the character profiles at my site.
Justice League of America or JLA: A superhero organization created to handle Earth-wide threats or problems beyond the power of conventional enforcement groups. If asked, the JLA will come to the assistance of other planets but their main duty is to protect Earth. The JLA’s base of operations is the Watchtower, which is located on the Moon. Current active members: Superman, a.k.a. Clark Kent, reporter for the Daily Planet; Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne, multimillionaire industrialist and philanthropist; Martian Manhunter, also known as J’onn J’onzz with several alter egos; Wonder Woman, also known as Diana, Princess of the Amazons; Aquaman, also known as Arthur Curry or Orin, King of Atlantis and the seven seas; Flash, a.k.a. Wally West, full time superhero; Plastic Man, a.k.a. Eel O’Brian, security consultant and ex-thief; and the Green Lantern, a.k.a. Kyle Rayner, a cartoonist for Feast magazine. Also a secret member, Oracle, a.k.a. Barbara Gordon, who manages several computers from her home and provides information for the superhero and metahuman community. The JLA also has several reserve members, including the former Guardian Angel Zauriel, the magician Zatanna, the machine-enhanced man Steel, and the size-changing Atom.
Young Justice or YJ: They hate being called the "Junior JLA" but that’s basically what they are: a group of kids that fight crime and struggle to live up to their mentors. Robin, Superboy, and Impulse first joined together to save the world when all the grown-ups were kidnapped. The trio decided to stick together and form a team, which was dubbed Young Justice by a reporter. And gradually they grew to their current lineup: Robin, a.k.a. Timothy "Tim" Drake, age 15, current sidekick to Batman, expert in martial arts, computers, and detective skills; Superboy, a.k.a. Kon-El, age 16, cloned "cousin" of Superman and possesses tactile telekinesis; Impulse, a.k.a. Bartholomew "Bart" Allen, age 14, speedster from the future and cousin to the current Flash; Wonder Girl, a.k.a. Cassandra "Cassie" Sandsmark, age 15, empowered by Zeus with a fraction of Wonder Woman’s abilities; Secret, a.k.a. Greta "Suzie" Hayes, age 13, body in a constant gaseous form and warder of the dead; Empress, a.k.a. Anita Fite, age 15, ferocious warrior with limited mind-control and teleportation abilities and practices Vodoun (voodoo); and Lil’ Lobo, a four hundred year old Czarnian bounty hunter magically de-aged into to a teenager.
Red Tornado, a.k.a. John Smith, is the official adult advisor to Young Justice and was once a member of the JLA. He is an android that was built by the evil scientist T.O. Morrow and animated with the living elemental essence of the Rannian "Tornado Champion." Red Tornado rebelled against his creator, choosing to be a hero instead. Other companions of YJ include Cissie King-Jones, formerly Arrowette and member of YJ and Traya Smith, the nine-year-old adopted daughter of Red Tornado. The current headquarters of the team is located in an abandoned Catskill Mountains resort that is subsidized by Wayne Enterprises.
Oh and you guys should probably know who Lex Luthor is. He is the main adversary of Superman and has also led the Injustice Gang in attempts to destroy the JLA. The general public thinks he’s a good guy but most super heroes know better. He always manages to get away without getting charged with anything or being imprisoned, covering his tracks and using underlings. Powers: Highly Intelligent. Vast personal fortune and company assets. History: Luthor grew up without any advantages. As a child, he grew up with foster parents who tried to wrest away his small inheritance. Luthor managed to use his keen mind and vast intelligence to build LexCorp from scratch. Currently, LexCorp basically owns Metropolis. Only Superman's presence prevents him from obtaining absolute power over Metropolis and the rest of the world. He views Superman as a sneaky alien with ulterior motives and will do anything to take him down. Basically, Luthor’s goal in life is to rule the world and he’s determined to reach that goal by any means necessary.
In the Buffy Universe, you should at least know everything up to the end of season five, when Buffy died to save Dawn’s life. If you don’t know who Buffy or Dawn is, then you’re not a fan of BtVS and probably shouldn’t read this fanfic. I’ll also allude to Angel and his gang and Wolfram & Hart, so you probably should have seen at least a few episodes, if not the first two seasons.
