Is Young justice and JLU in the same universe

#1 Edited by lilben42 (2551 posts) - - Show Bio

I just realized that the main Justice League in Young Justice are the same ones from JLU. Although there isn't specific evidence but they could be connected. I hope they are because it would keep the DCAU thing going. How do they know what a boomtube is?

It's already been established by the show's creators that they don't share continuity. Young Justice is in Earth-16, while the DCAU is in Earth-12.

Any similarities between the teams are coincidental, and their continuities are clearly different. In the DCAU, Justice League has more members, they have a Metro Tower post-JLU, and there are differences in character portrayals (Robin, for instance).

I assume that they're aware of the Boom Tube from past experience. It's a safe assumption to assume that the YJ League has had encounters with the Fourth World before.

@Veshark: That sucks.

@lilben42: Not really. I mean, the DCAU was great, but now it's time for something else. Personally? I hope we get a new Justice League cartoon after Young Justice, maybe set in the future with the Team being actual members of the League and ARE the League.

@Smart_Dork_Dude: I don't just because it would be on CN and I don't want another thing to get canceled. But they shouldn't make a Justice League cartoon and make them the league because they minds well just make that Young Justice season 3. If they started a new DCAU I would be ok with that but you know Green Lantern is set in the DCAU I think.

@lilben42: Hey, Young Justice season 3 is Young Justice season 3. As for Green Lantern, no it isn't. Bruce Tim is behind it and they're using his style, but it's not a part of the DCAU. How do I know? First of all Hal Jordan is in it and only showed up briefly in one episode and was never shown again which was due to a time warp. In the newest episode, they said John Stewart is the newest Green Lantern on Earth. Kyle Rayner hasn't been mentioned and in the DCAU HE was the first human to become a Green Lantern, even if he was fused with Hal Jordan in that he had his hair color and origin

JLU had more differences with the comics bec. they had John Stewart hook up with Shayera. The Justice League of Young Justice is more similar to silver age or Timothy Truman Hawkworld with the usual thanagarian katar hol and shayera as a pair. There are similarities in the 2 cartoons since more members have been added to the Justice League like Captain Atom, Captain Marvel, Black Lightning, Doctor Fate, Icon, etc. Young Justice has its own peculiarity in that Doctor Fate is the former Zatara.

@lilben42: No because then it would be in the same universe as Batman the animated series.

#12 Posted by lilben42 (2551 posts) - - Show Bio

@ULTRAstarkiller: Now that I've thought about it its probably set in JL Doom. I just hate how Wonder Woman and Superman looks.

Nah not in the slightest.

@lilben42: Ya probably and I hate how she sounds in young justice, and she's not as hot as her other counter parts too.

#15 Posted by lilben42 (2551 posts) - - Show Bio

@ULTRAstarkiller: Right. Zatanna looks better than her and thats a problem.

#16 Posted by ULTRAstarkiller (6206 posts) - - Show Bio

@lilben42: LOL that's the real reason it's getting cancelled.

Nope, JLU is part of the DCAU, and Young Justice is part of Earth 16.

#18 Posted by YoungJustice (6863 posts) - - Show Bio

No, since Static Shock is canon to JLU, and Static is a completely different character in YJ.

no they arent.

1. The DCAU JL was formed AFTER Dick Grayson became Nightwing. Whereas the YJ JL was around for at least 3 years before Dck became Robin

2. The Justice League roster is too different. The founding roster of the Young Justice JL is the original one from the comics.

3.Zatanna is a teenager/Young adult in Young Justice whereas the DCAU Zatanna was only slightly younger than Batman

4.The green martians are still alive in Young Justice whereas they were all wiped out in the DCAU

5.The Hawks a=in Young Justice are the silver age/thanagarian versions whereas in the DCAU Hawkman was human and Hawkgirl was thangarian

6.in Young Justice, Hal Jordan is an Active GL whereas in the DCAU, he had been in retirement for years

7.In Young Justice, Barry Allen is the Flash and is a JL founder, in the DCAU, Wally was the Flash and a founder

there are even more but i dont feel like listing them all right now.

I think it was stated by Bruce Timm a while ago that DCAU is officially closed and that there's very little chance they will return to that continuity. I think that's fine because they had a great run which lasted almost 15 years.

Thats not the main Justice League thats on trial in YJ, and they're not the same as the ones in the DCAU. The main/founders in YJ are the SIlver Age founders Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, MMH, Aquaman, Barry Allen,and Hal Jordan. The main/founders in the DCAU were " " plus Hawkgirl, Wally West, and Jon Stewart (replacing the former respectively). The Leaguers currrently on Rimbor are a homage to the DCAU team; with the Lanterns, Hawkman, and Icon accompanying them. You'll notice that when G. Gordon Godfrey's show airs, the logo is the same as the JLU logo.

No. JL is in the DCAU. YJ is on Earth-16. I won't even begin to explain what's wrong with thinking they're in the same universe.

@TheCannon: I wasn't really mostly just trying to start a conversation on the forum.

Exactly. Zatara didn't exist as a member of the JLU. Dick Grayson is still Robin in JLU though.

actually, Hal was. he just was never shown until JLU. Dwayne Mcduffie stated in an interview that Hal was a GL years ago but retired, the John took over and then Kyle became one. in JL its stated that John referred Kyle t o Katma tui for training.
