genomorphs

6

Here are the various Genomorphs from the animated series Young Justice.  The show follows the proteges of the Justice League, and the Genomorphs were encountered on their first mission.  They are experiments of Project Cadmus, they are the G-Trolls, G-Gnomes, G-Elves, G-Sprites, G-Goblin (Dubbillex), and G-Dwarves.  The name is a reference to genome in science, and the majority each carry a similar design (except G-Sprites).  Each are grey in color, with red accents that highlight their muscles, as well as glow read to indicate their telepathic abilities.  They caused some trouble, but they soon rebelled from their captors.

A Funny Feeling - Superboy x Reader

Requested by Anon - an imagine where the reader falls into the Young justice universe, with Superboy developing a crush on them (but not knowing what it is)


There was a flash of light, and suddenly you were falling. You screamed as your body began to tumble uncontrollably in the air. The spinning made you ill, and the swirling of the pavement below made time slow. You knew there was no way you were going to survive this. Closing your eyes, you prepared for impact. 

Suddenly, someone slammed into you. Two well-muscled arms slipped around your legs and upper back, pulling you into a brawny chest. The air went out of your lungs as you felt the person who held you land heavily on the pavement. You heard the pavement crack under the force of their landing. 

“Ahh,” you squeaked, wrapping your arms around the person’s neck to keep from falling out of their arms. You took a moment to get your bearings before meeting the blue eyes of your savior. 

“Are you…,” he started before his voice faded off. You took in his dark hair, and chiseled chin while he stared at you with wide eyes. He still held you tightly in his arms as you let go of his neck to get a look of the symbol on his chest. A red superman ‘S’. You frowned at it before everything clicked.

“Oh my,” you remarked, looking up at Superboy’s face again. You finally recognized him. “No…it can’t be…” Superboy’s brow crinkled in confusion. He opened his mouth to speak, but was interrupted by a gust of wind. 

A yellow blur stopped in front of you and Superboy. “Nice catch, Supey,” Kid Flash praised as you paled at the sight of him. You recognized him right away. He winked at you. “You must be an angel since you fell from the sky.”

“Leave her alone,” Artemis chided, striding up behind him. Your eyes were wide when you recognized Artemis too. “No one needs to deal with your cheesy pick-up lines.”  Kid Flash turned to snap back at her, entering into an argument. 

“You can put them down, Superboy,” Robin teased, swinging down next to the two of you. “Unless you want to carry them.” Superboy blushed, setting you down on your feet. You held onto his arm as your knees felt too weak to stand. This had to be a dream. The heroes from the TV show couldn’t really be here.

Aqualad walked over to stand next to Robin while Ms. Martian floated down to land beside you. “Are you alright?” Aqualad asked, watching you with concern. You must have looked as shocked as you felt. 

“I…,” you gasped, taking a long look at each one of them. You observed Superboy kept his eyes on you the whole time. Fear tingled in your gut as you slowly sat down on the ground. “This can’t be real,” you muttered to yourself, burying your head into your hands. “This has to be a dream.”

“What has to be a dream?” Superboy questioned, tilting his head at you as he sat down beside you. The other heroes crouch around you while Artemis and Kid Flash continued arguing a distance away.

“This,” you said, gesturing around you. “You guys can’t be real.” You pinched yourself to see if you’d wake up, but nothing happened. “Oh boy, this is real.”

The heroes around you looked at each other, having a silent conversation. However, Superboy’s gaze never left you. “Why did you think this isn’t real?” Robin asked after a moment. You narrowed your eyes at him.

“Because you only exist in the TV show and comic books,” you exclaimed, a headache brewing in your head. “None of you are real.” Ms. Martian was about to speak, but a passing shadow distracted her. You all looked up to see Superman floating there.

“Is everyone alright?” he asked, landing in front of you. His gaze lingered on you, making you feel a little faint. You met Superboy’s eye.

“Please tell me he isn’t real,” you begged. Superboy just continued to stare at you, not sure what to say. Aqualad pulled you back into a standing position.

Superman heard your words, taking a step forward to tower over you. His eyes were kind, but you were terrified. “I’m as real as you are,” he answered. You gulped as someone landed behind you. Spinning around, you met the white lenses of Batman. His eyes narrowed at you as you began to sway. You are embarrassed to say, but you fainted. 


It was about two months since you fainted. The league questioned you intently before deciding you weren’t a threat. They moved you into the cave with the team until they were able to find you a way home. Unfortunately, it was looking like you would be stuck here.  

Not that Conner would mind if you were never able to go home. He didn’t understand it, but a funny feeling buzzed in his chest every time he was close to you. It was an odd, yet pleasurable feeling. 

Conner didn’t understand what was happening to him. The genomorphs never programmed him with anything of this nature. He probably would have dismissed the feeling all together if it wasn’t for one conversation.

It was the weekend, and no missions had been assigned. Due to the boredom, Dick, Wally, and Conner were lounging around the living room of the cave. Dick and Wally were trying to make a tower out of playing cards while Conner was staring blankly at the far wall, thinking of you. Batman had taken you to visit Doctor Fate to see if there was a magical way to get you home.

Dick and Wally whispered to one another as they glanced over their shoulders at the distracted Conner. Wally got a playful smirk on his face as Dick started building the base of their card tower.

“So, Supey,” Wally began, nudging Conner’s leg. “What’s the deal with you and (Y/N)?”

Conner raised an eyebrow, blushing slightly. “I don’t understand what you mean.”

Wally chuckled, helping Dick place a card on top of two balanced ones. “I mean why do you get doe-eyed when (Y/N) is around?”

“Doe-eyed?” Conner asked, startled. He didn’t know what that meant, but he doubted it was something good.

“He means that you stare at them with a love-sick expression on your face,” Dick explained, balancing two more cards on the table. 

Conner’s eyes went wide in surprise and embarrassment. “I don’t know.”

“What do you mean you don’t know? How can you not know?” Wally exclaimed. The volume of his voice shook the cards on the table causing Dick to frown at him. 

“The genomorphs never programmed me about…this feeling,” Conner explained, wringing his hands together. His stomach twisted as both Wally and Dick sent him curious looks.

“What feeling?” Dick questioned, freezing to stare at Conner. Wally’s mouth just dropped open.

Clearing his throat, Conner felt he could trust Dick and Wally enough for a straight answer to what his feelings were. “When I’m near (Y/N) I get a funny feeling in my chest like I have heart palpitations, but it’s not. It’s not an unpleasant feeling, it feels like my breath is taken away.” He looked at Dick and Wally imploringly. 

Dick and Wally traded looks before they both burst out laughing. Conner’s face reddened, humiliated. He started to get up to leave, but Wally sped in front of him to stop him. 

“Calm down, Supey,” Wally said, taking a deep breath to stop his chuckling. “What you’re feeling is normal.”

“Yeah Conner, it sounds like you have a crush on (Y/N),” Dick replied, abandoning his card tower to stand at Conner’s side.  Conner’s brow furrowed in confusion. 

“A crush?” he asked, switching his gaze from Wally to Dick. 

Wally smirked at him. “The genomorphs didn’t teach you what a crush was?” Conner stared at him blankly while Dick punched Wally’s arm.

“You’re not helping him, Kid Mouth,” he scolded before turning to Conner. “A crush is when you like someone romantically.”  

“Oh,” Conner remarked, finally understanding. He nodded to Dick before turning to leave the room. 

Wally zoomed in front of him, stopping him again. “Dude, so are you going to ask (Y/N) out?”

“Is there a point? (Y/N) may have to return home at anytime.” Conner responded. He knew that “asking someone out” usually came after the revelation of liking someone romantically, but it seemed pointless.

“Well, take a chance. Don’t tell anyone this, but I overheard Batman say that it is unlikely that they will find (Y/N) a way to get home,” Dick stated plainly, lowering his voice. 

Conner’s heart ached at Dick’s words. He hated how you may never get home, but a small part of him was glad you may be here forever. “How would I ‘ask out’ (Y/N)?” Conner inquired, grimacing at the devious grins that grew on Wally and Dick.

“Don’t worry, Supey,” Wally reassured, slipping an arm around Conner’s shoulders. “We’ll help you.” Conner began to wonder if he made a mistake talking to these two.


A day later, you were lying on your bed in your room at the cave. This whole experience was surreal, but amazingly cool. If you had to be completely honest, you were enjoying your time in this universe, but you missed your home. 

A knock on the door made you rise from the bed. However, when you opened the door, you were surprised to see Superboy standing there awkwardly. He hasn’t spoken to you since the day he caught you, but he always seemed to stand close to you when you were in the same room together.

“Hi Superboy,” you greeted, giving him a friendly smile. He stared at you for a moment before clearing his throat. 

“My name is Conner,” he replied, studying every part of your face. “You can call me Conner.”

“Okay, Conner,” you answered. You paused a moment for him to continue, but when he said nothing, you prompted him. “What brings you to knock on my door?”

Conner blinked at you before glancing back down the hallway. “Could I speak to you in private?” You leaned out to peeked down the hallway only to see Kid Flash and Robin quickly duck behind a corner. 

“Sure, come in,” you offered, stepping aside. He marched in, standing beside your bed gawkily. You locked the door behind him. A smile came to your face when you heard two cries of disappoint echoing from the hallway. Conner and you stared at each other for several moments until he finally spoke.

“Ever since I met you, I get a funny feeling in my chest when I’m around you. I talked to Wally and Dick, and they explained the feeling means that I like you romantically,” Conner explained, clenching his hands to ease his nerves. 

“You like me?” you asked, stunned. It had never occurred to you that all his staring was because he liked you. 

Conner bit his lip, blushing as he looked down at his feet. He gave you a slight nod. “Wally and Dick also told me I should ask you out since I have a ‘crush’ on you,” he continued, his entire face burning red. “So, do you want to go out with me?”

Your mouth dropped open as your heart fluttered with excitement. A big smile grew on your face when you gained the ability to speak. “I would love to go out with you, Conner.”

“Good,” Conner answered, clearing his throat. He shuffled his feet nervously. “May I pick you up tomorrow at five?”

“Yeah, that would be great,” you replied, giving him a big smile. Conner made to leave, but you stopped him. “Conner, I want you to know that Batman told me yesterday that I may never get home.”

“I’m sorry,” Conner responded. His blue eyes were filled with sympathy and a glimmer of something else. “But I like to think that maybe it gives us a chance to know each other.”

You gave him a small grin. “Yeah, maybe,” you commented as Conner left the room. Maybe if you could never get home, you would be able to find a life here with Conner.

Let’s talk about Beast Boy in Justice League vs Teen Titans

Cause he was great. The first scene we see him in, he shows up naked to training. 

What a fucking dork.

And his transformations are awesome. Cause he does this

And this

Look at him with his stupid “rock on” signs

Then he turns into a donkey

AND FUCKING FARTS AT CYBORG 

He gave Robin a ride on his back as a horse which I thought was adorable

Also he turned into a Krolotean, one of the aliens from the second season of Young Justice. I thought that was cool easter egg.

At least it looks like a Krolotean. It could be one of the genomorph things from Cadmus labs. Either way, still cool.

ANYWAY, BEAST BOY WAS AWESOME AND SO WAS THE WHOLE MOVIE.

There are 7 types of Genomorphs
  • G-Gnomes: the small psychic creatures.
  • G-Trolls: the huge Genomorphs with enhanced strength.
  • G-Elves: the clawed warriors.
  • G-Sprites: the creatures that are kept in jars and are capable of producing energy.
  • G-Dwarves: worker drones with tentacles.
  • G-Goblin: Dubbilex, capable of telekinesis and speech, and telepathy but this is unknown to Cadmus. 
  • Project Kr: Superboy, a genetic clone of Superman.
