-->Superman: "Bruce, tell me again why this arm is so important."
-->Batman: "Because it came from another dimension."
-->--'''Opening Lines'''

A desperate move by [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Kakashi]] sends the rookies into another dimension, revealing a world crisis for both the WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague and the WesternAnimation/TeenTitans.

Essentially runs off the premise that Kakashi's MS technique Kamui sends things to the DC universe. This gets out of hand when he accidentally sends the Konoha 11 plus Team Hebi to the DC world. The Justice League has to keep their rowdy visitors in line while trying to figure out a way to send them home. Spectre and a god-powered Luthor are also involved…

If you love the rookie twelve, this is the fic for you. Every one of them gets a crowning moment of awesome (yes, even Ten-Ten; ESPECIALLY Ten-Ten). The story is set in the somewhat broken continuity of the DCAU, but numerous characters from the larger DC universe (and from outside of it) make cameo appearances or more. At over 300,000 words, its a long read, but worth it. [=NaruHina=] is part of the story, but it is a minor part and shouldn't turn you away from this excellent fic. Now complete.

!!Tropes for this story include:

* AlternateUniverse: In Story; The main twelve of Konoha + Sasuke's Hebi group get caught in Kakashi's Sharingan Warping Technique. The result is they end up scattered about the DC universe.
* AnAxeToGrind: [[spoiler:Sakura makes a pair of her own out of titanium.]]
* ArtificialLimbs: [[spoiler: Tenten loses a hand in her escape from Lex Luthor's captivity]], but Cyborg and Fixit give her a mechanical arm with a built in laser gun. She is ''very'' pleased.
* BatmanGambit: Guess.
* BreakingSpeech: Lex Luthor[[spoiler: /{{Darkseid}}]] gives a particularly devastating one to the Superman [[spoiler: after completing the Anti-Life Equation]].
* BroughtDownToNormal: The Spectre [[spoiler: strips Sasuke of his chakra]] and dumps him in Gotham City. It goes [[HumiliationConga about as well]] [[BreakTheHaughty as you'd expect]].
* CharacterDevelopment: While he never performs a HeelFaceTurn, Sasuke shows subtle signs of developing some measure of empathy [[spoiler: after his [[BreakTheHaughty experiences]] in Gotham City]].
** [[spoiler: and then the final scene in [[WhamEpisode Chapter]] [[DistantFinale 33]] has him in charge of Otogakure, welcomed by Naruto into the Shinobi Alliance, cementing his HeelFaceTurn]].
* ChildSoldiers: When first meeting Neji, Green Lantern is disturbed by how much of a professional soldier the seventeen year old is. Especially when he mentions that he started at age twelve.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint / DramaticallyMissingThePoint: Neji manages to invoke both variations when the Teen Titans [[WhatTheHellHero chew him out]] for [[spoiler: killing Doctor Light]].
* ContinuityNod: The plastic tips at the end of shoelaces are called aglets.
* CultureClash: A major recurring theme. Of particular note is how [[ThouShaltNotKill bizarre]] [[CardboardPrison the treatment]] [[JokerImmunity of supervillains]] is to the ninjas.
* DynamicEntry: Is shouted by none other than the TropeNamer himself [[spoiler: [[BigDamnHeroes when he saves Mr. Terrific and Green Arrow from Bane.]]]]
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler: Naruto and Sasuke]] make a [[BashBrothers formidable pair]] against [[spoiler: [[FusionDance Darkthor]].]]
** The Spectre tries to do this with [[spoiler: Kyuubi and Trigon]] but the latter basically laughs in his face and the former only agrees after it's pointed out that [[spoiler: Luthor could BodySurf Naruto and take control of him]]
* EyeScream: [[spoiler: Sasuke loses his left eye in the fight with Kyuubi Naruto]]
** Later [[spoiler: Neji shoots Bizarro right in the eye with a Blue Kryptonite arrow.]]
** Also later [[spoiler: Luthor/Darkseid rips out Kakashi's Sharingan.]]
* FlatEarthAtheist: Mr. Terrific insists there's a logical explanation for all the supernatural events going on in the story, to the annoyance of several characters, particularly [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Deadman]] and [[DealWithTheDevil Blue Devil]].
* ForWantOfANail: A chapter with Karin as the viewpoint character reveals that in this version of the Naruto story, Sasuke didn't abandon Juugo and Suigetsu during the attack on the Kages, which in turn lead to Taka taking down Danzo and leaving the area before Sakura could reach them. It's never suggested to be the case, but this ''may'' have been what eventually led to the Kakashi led mission to take down Sasuke, and in turn the events of the story.
* FusionDance: [[spoiler: '''"I was once [[LexLuthor Luthor]]. I was once {{Darkseid}}...Now I am both."''']]
* HeroicBSOD: Mr. Terrific has a small one when Hinata unwittingly challenges his ArbitrarySkepticism by revealing details about one of his experiences with TheSpectre she should, in theory, have no way of knowing.
* HumanAliens: A good portion of the DC heroes, obviously. Naji lampshades this as he discusses with John Stewart while [[spoiler:he and Rock Lee are given a tour of Oa.]]
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: All the chapters have words that end with "-tion" for titles.
* IntercontinuityCrossover: Did you miss the part up there where it said "JusticeLeague" and "Manga/{{Naruto}}?" There a few thousand pop culture references sprinkled around also.

* IronicEcho: "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission."
* JokerImmunity: Lampshaded in a discussion between Mr. Terrific and [[spoiler: James Corrigan]] about how only the heroes or villains ever seem to cheat death while civilians tend to stay dead.
* MathematiciansAnswer
-->'''Huntress''': "Just tell me why he [Kiba] is in his boxers."
-->'''Question''': "Because I took off his pants."
* MrExposition: The Spectre, especially in the earlier chapters. Luthor too, to a lesser extent.
* MythologyGag: To help verify Hinata's story about HowWeGotHere, Lois Lane asks her to use her Byakugan to [[Film/{{Superman}} identify what color underwear she's wearing]].
* NeuralImplanting: Martian Manhunter clears up the communication problem for most of the Konoha team with his telepathy this way.
** Shikamaru, having been in captivity for months, is unfortunate enough to get his English dictionary from Lex Luthor. He's not a fan.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Kakashi finally decides to teleport himself ([[AndZoidberg and Gai]]) to The DCAU, [[spoiler: and appears right in front of Lex Luthor, who rips the Mangekyou Sharingan out of his head and uses it to complete The Anti-Life Equation]].
* PoorCommunicationKills: Until J'onn uses his telepathy to implant the English language into their heads, the Rookie Twelve can only speak authentic Japanese. Much conflict initially ensues because neither party literally understands the other.
* RefugeInAudacity: [[spoiler: To keep word from getting out about Huntress' pregnancy,]] Question destroys her and his latest blood samples (in full view of Mr. Terrific and Green Arrow) and asks where the medical records are kept. After Terrific tells him, warning him only to tell Batman he's deleting files again. Why? Because he told them it's a safeguard against a Mayan conspiracy, and it's [[ConspiracyTheorist Question]].
* RunningGag: "Unless it IS!" "Shut up, Flash."
** It takes a lot to convince Sai that he's not in a genjutsu.
* ShoutOut: If you look closely during Ino's psychic breakdown, you'll notice several characters with their own connections to the [[VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}} mind]]...
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Shikamaru vs. Lex Luthor, frequently. At the ending, Shikamaru vs. the Goddamned Batman. [[spoiler: Just when Batman thinks he won without Shikamaru noticing, it turns out that Batman '''already''' lost.]]
* SuperpowerMeltdown: Ino, [[spoiler: unaware and untrained in her newly unlocked telepathic abilities, ends up unintentionally [[MindRape mind raping]] her friends.]] It takes Sai, and a handful of people with a SplitPersonalityTakeover to reach her and rein her in.
* ThisIsReality: When surfing the internet, Beast Boy introduces the concept of fanfiction to Kiba. When Kiba asks him if there are any fanfics of himself, Beast Boy points out that of course there isn't, because he's real, and that would be creepy.
* ThouShaltNotKill: The ninjas really don't understand this pillar of the DC Universe.
* TitleDrop: Reverend [=McCay=] does this when his EpiphanyTherapy to Sasuke segues into discussing his own raison d'être.
-->"[[MrSmith Alex]], as you get older, you'll learn everyone suffers, and everyone thinks that they suffer alone. Even if they share their troubles with others, they think their own brand of sorrow is special and incomprehensible by anyone else. They feel like… like little dots. Like little, isolated dots of suffering, completely separate."
-->"And what so few people understand is that they don't HAVE to be that way. They don't understand how to USE that suffering, to use it to understand others and to help others. The dots don't like to reach out to other dots, they don't try to connect. As minister, that's part of my job. To reach out to the heartaches in the pew and bring them into contact with each other. And, while I'm at it, to try and guess at the order to the dots. To… connect the dots, as it were, and see the overarching pattern to it all."
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: This is largely what [[spoiler: Norman [=McCay=]]] dies of. May also be considered TooCoolToLive.
* TookALevelInBadass: Tenten likes automatic weaponry.
* TraumaCongaLine: Ooooh does [[JerkassWoobie Sasuke]] [[BreakTheHaughty get it bad here]]. Halfway through the story, he [[spoiler: [[EyeScream loses his left eye]] in a fight with Kyuubi Naruto, then gets [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech lectured]] by TheSpectre about how is vengeance-seeking will be his downfall. The Spectre then [[BroughtDownToNormal strips him of his chakra]], forcing him to commit acts of petty burglary, which gets a partner he recruited killed and his leg mangled by a shotgun.]] And ''then'' [[spoiler: [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Johnny Rancid's]] gang finds him and [[CurbStompBattle beats him up for fun]] before deciding he's NotWorthKilling. Only then does he decide he AintTooProudToBeg in the streets of Gotham]]. Fortunately, at that point, it was the only thing that prevented him from crossing the MoralEventHorizon. He gradually begins to recuperate and salvage his dignity [[spoiler: after meeting Norman [=McCay=].]]
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Robin is completely unmoved when [[spoiler: Sasuke forces him to relive his parents' deaths via Tsukuyomi]] because a whole bunch of other villains with MindRape-based powers have done the same thing before.
* WhamEpisode: [[DistantFinale Chapter 33]] came nearly a year after the story was supposedly complete. Before that, Chapter 32 had Batman and Wonder Woman peeking in at another dimension watching a costumed guy [[SpiderMan shoot webs at his enemies]].
* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: More like World of Cardboard Lessons as Superman starts his training of Naruto.
* YinYangClash: Sasuke's [[AbsurdlySharpBlade Sword of Kusanagi]] vs Wonder Woman's Bracers of Athena
** [[spoiler: The sword dents the bracers. Both characters are flabbergasted, for different reasons.]]
** Superman vs a Rasenshuriken. That is all.
* YouNoTakeCandle: The mysterious passerby who hands a destitute [[spoiler: Sasuke]] a twenty dollar bill speaks this way.This character is a cameo by [[HeyItsThatGuy Pete]] from TheMuppetsTakeManhattan, who delivers the exact same lines in this way.
