Young Justice - Independence Day (Pilot)

now i’m imagining like - helena moving back to gotham and becoming a vigilante A LOT SOONER

like suddenly there’s this vicious, brutal vigilante, and batman is off fucking around in space so yj goes to handle it

oh look it’s a teenage girl tearing through the mob like tissue paper

they’re antagonistic for a while, but eventually huntress ends up joining the team, and artemis becomes like a big sister figure

by now, spoiler is a thing; she and huntress worked together a few times, and helena vouches for her, so steph joins the team too

THEN a bunch of criminals mysteriously get their trigger fingers broken

assailants are left in an unconscious heap at the scene of the crime

eventually, finally, batgirl confronts the girl responsible and takes her in, offers her a home and a name

when batgirl becomes oracle, cassandra becomes batgirl; when robin becomes red robin, stephanie becomes robin
