The The Issue Before the One Where the Girls Show Up wiki last edited by sweatboy on 03/28/15 02:37AM View full history

A group of cult members do a black magic ritual to unleash the true power of whatever and accidentally bring Mr. Mxyzptlk to Earth. Meanwhile, Young Justice members Superboy, Robin and Impulse host a hallow-teen party for teenagers around the neighborhood.

Robin gets tangled with a Jock trying to impress his girlfriend ((I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT THE GIRL CAME ONTO HIM)) while Impulse and Superboy deal with a crisis: who turned all the kids into elders and why can't they stop dancing?

Mr. Mxyzptlk then appears and tells them he is doing research.

As Young Justice pounds him to make him turn things back to normal, Mr. Mxyzptlk explains he was going to turn things back to normal after his research. Superboy is shocked that this version of Mxyzptlk is a scholar, while Robin warns him NOT to tell him about his future self telling him it may affect the present.

But Superboy tells Mxyzptlk that he rots Superman's life with his stupid occasional pranks.

The present is thus destroyed and Young Justice have to fix it all.

They bring Mxyzptlk to the cinema, to watch a comedy movie, but instead of laughing to the movie, he laughs at the projector kid, Mick Gurk. After giving an electric handshake to Impulse, laughing at everyone and thanking Young Justice for showing him humor, he disappears.

They then go out and look around them, as they see that Mxyzptlk has had fun and turned to whole area to a "Mxyzptlk Halloween", while Robin asks Red Tornado if the whole world looked like this or just the immediate area. Luckily for them, it was only the immediate area, and Robin the wonders if Mxyzptlk and Impulse were seperated at birth.

The bullies that try to rob candy from Red Tornadoes daughter, Traya Sutton, resemble Jimbo, Dolph, and Kearney from the Fox TV animated show, The Simpsons (1989-Present).

Corruption of the innocent: The secret origin of one of Superman's most annoying enemies 0

((trouble uploading pictures, will be included after 4th April. Not that pics are essential, but i feel they are))This issue was SO FUNNY! And handles some deep, complex theories as well. Time travel, and well, something sort of like aliens, but instead of "other worlds", this entity is from something like another "dimension".Spoilers, yes i will be including them. Because this is a review, not a preview, and we assume you've read the comic. But you should read it, highly recommend it. The young...
