''Youngblood'' is an early Creator/ImageComics {{comic book}} written by Creator/RobLiefeld, based on a team he had created at the start of his career and planned to do as part of GaryCarlson's anthology series Megaton in the late 1980s, but put on hold when he got job offers from both Marvel and DC at the same convention. When he revived the concept in the early 1990s, he mixed in some ideas he had for the ComicBook/TeenTitans but never got to use, about a {{superhero}} team funded by the government to kill indiscriminately and have no obvious sense of morals. Interestingly it was the first book published under the Image banner, but its first issue was completed in 1991 before Image was officially formed. It was later rebooted by Creator/AlanMoore in ''ComicBook/YoungbloodJudgmentDay'', which is generally regarded as an improvement (which isn't saying much, and it's generally ranked among Moore's worst work).

The series is incredibly stubborn and refuses to stay dead, with its characters making frequent appearances as part of the superhero community in other Image publications such as ComicBook/{{Invincible}}, and Image United. A 2008 relaunch written by Creator/JoeCasey elevated the series to levels of adequacy. Unfortunately, this only lasted nine issues.

* WritingAroundTrademarks: In the team's first appearance, Badrock's codename was "Bedrock". Liefeld decided to change the name to avoid confusion with the setting of ''TheFlintstones''.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: More like, "Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads And Loads Of Characters", and many of them blatant ripoffs of other characters, ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} in particular.

* SharedUniverse: Youngblood has ties to virtually every major Image title in some form or another. Chapel is the man who iced Al Simmons and sent him on the road to becoming Comicbook/{{Spawn}}. The team guest-starred in the original WildCATS miniseries. Doc Rocket and Johnny Panic both owe their existence entirely to Moore's ''ComicBook/{{Supreme}}'' - they didn't appear directly but are related to characters introduced therein. Diehard ''did'' appear in ''Supreme'', as a member of the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Allies of Justice (along with Superpatriot from ''ComicBook/SavageDragon''). And Suprema and Twilight, the series' Supergirl and Robin stand-ins, were members of the team during Moore's run.

* TheStraightAndArrowPath: [[MeaningfulName Shaft]], used a high-tech gravity-catapult longbow because he thought it [[RuleOfCool looked cooler]] than a gun. In later series, he's not above using guns depending on the situation, but still strongly prefers the bow because he considers it to be irrevocably his "thing".
