anonymous asked:

Let's celebrate the news with some Young Justice /Earth 16 headcanons please.

YESSSSSSS!  Our prayers have been answered! Yes please send me all the headcanons about Young Justice/Earth-16!  

This 3rd season could introduce so many more characters!  An extended Marvel/Shazam family.  Additional Batfamily members.  Donna Troy.  Supergirl. Kid Devil. Kid Eternity (I hope they make him the brother of Freddy Freeman).  I want another atlantis-centric episode, a Legion of Superheroes episode, followup on the runaways.  

I haven’t even got to the bad guy of the season.  Darkseid motherfucker. DC our lord and savior breaks out the Kirby Krackle for my Fourth-World-lovin-ass.  All of the New Gods please.  Bring in Jimmy Olsen.  Bring in the Newsboy Legion.  Throw in Bibbo Bibbowski because apparently DC listens to us now.  

I’m just so happy.  Send me all the Young Justice Headcanons.  As always I accept headcanons about any DC character 24/7.
