Oh, crap (Young Justice: Invasion theory)

#1 Edited by VampireSelektor (749 posts) - - Show Bio

What if the Season 2 invasion is a byproduct of The Light being backed by Darkseid in a plot to further cruelty and crime on planet Earth? The Light and their tendency to stay on the bleeding edge of technology may be due to Apokoliptan* backing, the invasion a means to crushing any opposition to the new world order. Intergang has already made an appearance during that episode with The Forever People, and there are no random occurrences on the show.

I think The Light used the mind controlled Leaguers to cause an intergalactic incident which will lead to the invasion.

@VampireSelektor: Em, Lex may be...off, but why would he want GODS invading his earth. He hates Superman, why does he want something worse?

There is human evolution....and then Human extinction

my theory is the lights made the justice league (the six that went missing) attack apokolips (or some other foreign area), provoking whomever to invade and the justice league will be blamed.

True, but Intergang and Apokolips have had an agreeable relationship for years. Theoretically, The Light and Darkseid could have agreed to arranged for the latter to invade the Earth in order to topple all terrestrial governments.

This makes sense. Using the six missing Leaguers to "provoke Apokolips" would discredit the Justice League, providing ample opportunity for The Light, Lex, Queen Bee, and Ocean Master likely their public faces, to "save the world" and steer the world populace towards nihilism and crime. Of course, The Light and Darkseid will be in cahoots.

I think the Light manipulated the League into instigating violence on several planets...as their is supposed to be nine different alien species showing up. Apparently, from the trailers, the public will lose trust in them. In order for the Light to take over the world, they need to discredit the League, if they just wipe them out, they will look like martyrs, The Light needs to look like the heroes
 
I honestly do not expect to see Darkseid for another season

It appears that we will be getting one of those "losing trust in our superhero team" stories, but knowing how brilliant Young Justice has been so far, I expect it to all go over well. I'm going with something along the lines of cattlebattle's assessment.

I think the Light manipulated the League into instigating violence on several planets...as their is supposed to be nine different alien species showing up. Apparently, from the trailers, the public will lose trust in them. In order for the Light to take over the world, they need to discredit the League, if they just wipe them out, they will look like martyrs, The Light needs to look like the heroes.

And when Darkseid does show up, he should be the biggest, baddest villain in the whole series. I want to see him do more than just punch and shoot beams from his eyes like in JLU (even though I loved Michael Ironside as Darkseid and his characterization was great). I want to see flight, telepathy, mind control, telekinesis, teleportation, matter manipulation, super speed, energy absorption, resurrection, soul manipulation, size alteration (he doesn't have to actually display all of these) and other abilities that his comic book counterpart possesses when written correctly. I would like to see him beat the crap out of the entire League, and certainly not job to the Young Justice Team. I know I'm probably being unrealistic, but it's just something I want to see.

@VampireSelektor: oh definitely, Darkseid is has to be working with the Lights, they already have some sort of alliance with Intergang when Desaad was supplying weapons to them...im sure Intergang is somehow tied to the lights...

What alien races? There are so many....and unless they attacked G'Nort world.. all deadly

Its clear Vandal sent the Justice Lords to attack various alien worlds to provoke an invasion. He left the League alive because the planet will still need there help to survive the invasion.

@Skaddix: But whom were attacked? The Reach? The Tameranians? The Zamorons?

Um...do Azarathians count as Aliens?

Not sure one of the previews has pictures of the league beating up aliens but i am not good at recognizing the species. Although there is a crossover event called INVASION! that is the probably the basis.

@Skaddix: True, but animated versions generally change details....

The Dominators have forged an uneasy alliance with the Khund, the Warlords of Okarra, the Daxamites, the Psions, theGil'Dishpan, Thanagarians, the Citadel and the Spider Guild. While cleansing their own races, the ultimate goal of this alliance is the conquest of Earth and the eradication of the planet's unique indigenous super-heroes!

That could be nine races....but we already had a big Thanagarian Invasion done......

We know for sure we will see the Raanians, or whatever they're called, and the green guys that Robin and Lagoon Boy are fighting look to be Kolotarians from the Green Lantern books

I didn't read this carefully. This is actually more tasteful than just debuting Darkseid in the second season.

#28 Posted by Bestostero (5618 posts) - - Show Bio

i dont know about that, i think they would resolve the Apokolips ties now because remember, the show was at risk for cancellation, they originally could only do 10 episodes for season 2 but they actually got the green light to produce more, of course i dont want to see it get cancelled, but i would believe they would tie it up in case it does...?

A mix of these. Maybe it's like on Justice League Unlimited when everybody got mad about them building a space station, or in comics.
