While Gotham was under siege, former Titan Victor Stone (aka: Cyborg) saw a need for a team of heroes that would handle any crisis that occurred in cities without a dedicated protector or who could investigate other matters of concern without violating the U.S. government ban on the JLA acting in international affairs. So he set up shop inside an old secret training and meeting facility that the ‘super friends’ used to use, in the quiet East Coast town of Happy Harbor. This secret team was never given a name, but Cyborg liked to call it ‘Young Justice’ on account of most of its members being teenagers and young adults.


The Team was formed by the founding seven of Justice League during their meeting in 2014. Officially, the Founders' Meeting didn't take place, but in reality, the established a branch of the Justice League dedicated to Covert Operations. "The Team" would go on secret missions for the League that ARGUS and the United Nations do not know about. Operating out of Mount Justice, Red Robin led his fellow former Titans on covert missions.

    In General 
  • Badass Crew: Though they started out as a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits, when they come together as a team they consist between of a Half-Human atlantean, a green martian, a half kryptonian clone, three members of the Bat Family, a demigoddess, a speedster, an archer from Team Arrow, a member of the Marvel Family, a Patriotic Fervor heroine, two Sizeshifter and a Warder.
  • Balance, Speed, Strength Trio: Red Robin, Impulse and Superboy are considered as this, mirroring their mentors in Justice League.
  • Brains and Brawn: Red Robin and Superboy have this dynamic when they work together, though Robin isn't a pushover and Supey isn't dumb.
  • Child Soldiers: The morally grey area of their youth is brought up from time to time and their missions give them all a fair amount of trauma. But they would all rather be a child soldier than a pure Side Kick.
  • Composite Character: The team is composed of both the original members in the comics and the Team in the animated series.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Occasionally they'll run missions off camera with their mentors.
  • One Steve Limit: There are two Cassandras on the team, Cain and Sandsmark.
  • The Team: Incidentally they are actually called 'the Team' In-Universe.

    Aqualad II (Jackson Hyde/Kaldur'ahm)
Click for Civilian Look 

Garth's successor, Jackson Hyde (Kaldur'ahm) is the son of Black Manta and a exiled atlantean mother. Despite his father's lifestyle he's chosen the path of the hero as Aqualad. Somewhat stoic, he soon becomes the team's voice of reason when it comes to dealing with obstacles, whether they be friend or foe.

  • Acquired Poison Immunity: As a result of living under water all his life, he's developed a resistance to jellyfish venom.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: Jackson in Earth 27 is bisexual rather than straight (albeit Ambiguously Bi before Outsiders officially confirmed it as Bi or Polisexual) or gay in Rebirth.
  • Bad Liar: Jackson is a horrible liar, when you know what to look for. Not that he has the most expressive face to begin with, but his left eyelid twitches whenever he is telling a falsehood.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Aqualad is often very caring and reasonable, but is terrifying when pushed the wrong way.
  • Composite Character: Jackson in Earth 27 is a composite character of Jackson Hyde from the comics and Kaldur'ahm from Young Justice. Because the character was originally created for the animated series before being brought into comics, he has a different origin from his comic book counterpart.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: His hair is inherited from his mom.
  • Determinator: Due to past experiences, Jackson refrains from being in situations where others rely on him to make the right decision. This is a true shame as he was a truly exceptional leader.
  • Dreadlock Warrior: Has grown this.
  • Dual Wielding: He often solidifies water into two weapons he uses to attack.
  • Elemental Baggage: Aqualad cannot create the water he telekinetically manipulates, it either comes from the pack on his back or a standing supply near by.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: His father is the human Black Manta, while his mother is an Atlantean.
  • The Insomniac: Jackson struggles with insomnia, and can often be found walking, running, or swimming late at night to help himself fall asleep from exhaustion.
  • Magic Knight: His powers come from Atlantean magic, but his fighting style is considerably more hands-on than other Atlantean magicians.
  • Morph Weapon: His waterbearers have a lot of different uses, thus becoming an Impossibly Cool Weapon.
  • Multi-Melee Master: His waterbearers can turn into swords, maces, hammers, bats and whips.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: Jackson is a big fan of zombie movies and literature.
  • Power Tattoo: his eel tattoos of his arms.
  • Shock and Awe: He has the power to emit electric waves; much in the same way an electric eel can. Though Jackson is hesistant to use this ability (due to it having accidentally killed his mother), Jackson has learned to use this to emit an electrical touch, bursts of electricity, and coat himself in electrical armor for short durations.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: One of the tallest of the team, dark skinned, and has been known to very attractive.
  • Team Dad: Stated as such by Miss Martian. Aqualad often keeps the others in line, and even literally acts like an older brother/mentor to both Superboy and Red Robin.
  • Telepathy: Like all Atlanteans, Jackson has a node in his brain allowing for short-range telepathic reception and transmission to other minds with similar developments. He can transmit telepathic impulses to other minds lacking a similar node, but this is one-way communication.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Jackson's favorite food is tacos. He loves fish tacos most of all, but because his teammates tease him about eating fish, he often chooses to save those as a private pleasure when dining alone.
  • White Sheep: He is a hero while his father Black Manta is a villain.

    Miss Martian (M'gann M'orzz)
Click for Civilian Look 

The good-natured niece of J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter. M'gann is enthusiastic and eager to please.

  • Adaptation Species Change: M'gann is a Green Martian with a Partial Albino Infection rather than a White Martian in the comics as Word of God didn't like the racist undertone of this so he changed that part of her backstory.
  • Aliens Steal Cable: Everything she knows about Earth comes from watching TV. Her appearance and mannerisms are modeled after a character in the aptly named Hello, Megan! television series.
  • Alliterative Name: Megan Morse AKA M 'gann M 'orzz.
  • Amicable Exes: With Conner.
  • Badass Cape: Develops more and more into one, while sporting a blue cape.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: She's forty-eight in Earth years. However, since her species ages more slowly than humans, she's physically and mentally sixteen.
  • Character Tic: M'gann sneezes when she is nervous. Apparently this was something she psychsomatically developed as a result of an episode of Hello Megan!.
  • Comfort Food: M'gann chews bubblegum whenever she needs to help tune out her powers. She finds the constant chewing somehow disrupts her telepathic ability.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Gar/Beast Boy.
  • Cool Ship: The Bio-Ship, M'gann's personal techno-organic ship used by the Team for transportation. While on standby, it resembles a giant egg. Once a Martian initializes it with a mental command, the Bio-Ship instantly morphs. The interior and exterior can be reconfigured to accommodate the situation, such as providing seats for extra passengers. The ship can activate a camouflage mode and become practically invisible.
  • The Gadfly: M'gann tends to snort whenever she is laughing. If Garfield is believed it's actually whenever she's laughing while also sexually aroused. Looking back at previous VOX recordings, Babs can see why Gar thinks this way. She snorted a lot when dating Conner.
  • Girly Bruiser: Sweet, good-natured, cutie who likes baking, but is also capable of kicking lots of ass.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she uses her psychic powers.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Her usual appearance.
  • Interspecies Romance: She's a Martian dating Atlantean La'Gann.
  • Invisibility: M'gann can cause the biopolymers in her body to lose their ability to reflect light, rendering M'gann invisible to normal light and human sight.
  • Magic Pants: She explains that her outfit is organic and responds to her mental commands, allowing it to shapeshift with her.
  • Mind over Matter: As a Martian, she's telekinetic, which she also uses to simulate Flight.
  • Mouthing the Profanity: M'gann is frustrated by profanity. Her left eye will usually twitch when is is forced to bear listening to such language.
  • Official Couple: With Lagoon Boy.
  • Older Than She Looks: Thanks to Martians aging about three times slower than humans.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: M'gann is a self-proclaimed expert on Earth culture and tends to keep up with a lot of the trends in pop culture.
  • Psychic Link: Otherwise known as a telepathic link. M'gann is able to use her telepathic prowess as a relay station for a group of minds, who can then "speak" to each other through her. The relaying ability seems to be limited to the same range as M'gann's normal telepathic range.
  • Shapeshifting: All Martians are shapeshifters and she's no exception.
  • Social Media Before Reason: M'gann loves social media and texting. She is prone to using terms such as 'LOL', 'NSFW', or 'TBH' even in her verbal speech.
  • Super Strength: While not nearly as powerful as a Kryptonian, Martians are physically stronger than humans.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Her default form is 5'10"/178cm tall and quite pretty.
  • Telepathy: She's a Martian, so she's got the whole telepathy thing going on. She's unusually powerful for one at that.
  • Token Non-Human: She's the only one in the original formation to not have any real human DNA at all and of Earth origins. Even Superboy had a portion of human DNA.
  • Translator Microbes: She can serve this function psychically when not facilitating straight telepathy.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: M'gann like J'onn has an allergic reaction to fire and intense heat. Exposure to heat causes Martians to become stressed, fatigued, and delirious; and thus unable to utilize their abilities effectively.
  • Working with the Ex: With Superboy.
  • Youthful Freckles: Comes with the red hair.

    Superboy (Conner Kent/Kon-El)
Click for Civilian Look 

Project Kr Match A1 was designed by Project Cadmus as a clone of Superman, meant to replace him if anything should ever happen to the Man of Steel, or to take him down should Superman ever turn from Truth, Justice and the American Way. Or, in exact words, from the Light. He was freed from the influence of Mind Control by Kid Flash, Aqualad and Wonder Girl, and after shaking off the brainwashing, made his own choice to join the others. Once removed from his stasis, the clone was given a name by M'gann, who had chose to refer to him as Conner and given the moniker "Superboy" by Kid Flash.

  • Afraid of Doctors / Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Conner has a number of mild fears and anxieties, including an intense hatred for monkeys (actually apes too), clowns, people in lab coats, and interestingly, bakers of all things. He is also very camera shy in recent years, likely afraid someone will recognize his resemblance to Lex Luthor.
  • Amicable Exes: With Cass and M'gaan. Though the latter is still upset with her for some reason.
  • Artificial Human: Conner is clone created by experimentations by Cadmus.
  • Barrier Warrior: By creating a field around his body Conner was able to resist or reduce injury from non-energy based attacks by causing the object to be deflected from his personal force field. Bullets and shrapnel were easily deflected.
  • Birthday Hater: Conner does not like surprises and prefers not to celebrate holidays or birthdays.
  • Chest Insignia: He proudly wears the House of El S symbol.
  • Civvie Spandex: Currently the trope poster boy.
  • Clark Kenting: Conner unlike his father Clark, he's a terrible offender. Well, because Conner lacks the character performance abilities needed to help differentiate his civilian and heroic identities, Cassie gave him the glasses he wears now. They are enchanted by Hephaestus and give off a mild psychic impulse that helps prevent people unfamiliar with Conner from making the connection between his two identities.
  • Cloning Blues: He falls into this occasionally, Though he get better.
  • Composite Character: Superboy is a composite of his Pre-Flashpoint during his 90's period where he was immature and egotistical teen and he went Character Development to become broody, hot-tempered and mature like his appearance on Geoff John's run of Teen Titans and Young Justice counterpart after he learned of having Lex Luthor's DNA and he also retains his full powers in the comics.
  • Darker and Edgier: Once he learned that he was made with Lex Luthor's DNA, the cocky, brash hero got much angstier.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Besides his red "S", Superboy's current hero attire consists of dark clothing.
  • Defusing the Tyke Bomb: With ease, Conner nearly defeated the ragtag team of Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and Aqualad, before Aqualad's limited telepathic ability was able to establish enough contact with the raging clone enough to distract him and allow Wonder Girl to bind him with her indestructible lasso and subdue him with enough juice to power the Eastern seaboard.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Conner used to have a crush on Karen Starr. He was mortified to learn she was his genetic cousin. His new crush is Dinah Lance. From what Oracle gathered, he's got a thing for blondes (or at least apparent blondes - as neither Karen or Dinah are natural blondes).
  • Eye Beams: He eventually develops Kryptonian heat vision.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Both of his kryptonian suit and Civvie Spandex suit.
  • Flying Brick: His original abilities were "programmed" to mimic Superman's as closely as possible, including flight, deflecting bullets and mimicking Super Strength through Telekinesis and over time he developed the usual Kryptonain power set allowing him to find more creative uses for his telekinesis.
  • Freudian Trio: The Ego to Wally's Id and Tim's Superego.
  • Fun Personified: Before going Darker and Edgier.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He's the Clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. His existence proves that at least artificially created hybrids are definitely possible.
  • Happily Adopted: He's adopted by Clark & Lois to the Kent family and House of El.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Conner prefers to share his emotions, frustrations, and plans with Krypto - his pet wolf. Though he will open up to others, particularly Tim and Cassie, he much prefers to run things by the canine first.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Like his father he is as vulnerable to Kryptonite and magic.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Conner is an outfit repeater. His closet consists of mostly the same basic outfit.
  • Mind over Matter: At first, Superboy's only superpower was "tactile telekinesis", a telekinetic force field that surrounded his body as a protective shield, allowing him to simulate Superman-level speed, strength, flight and invulnerability. This was a side-effect of being the product of human and Kryptonian fused genetics. As he grew older and his body soaked in more yellow sun radiation, his human side became more suppressed and he eventually lost his psionic abilities. It is theorized that should he be deprived of yellow sun radiation for prolonged periods of time, these abilities may return.
  • Mind Rape: Superboy's mind is vulnerable to psionic effects. Due to Cadmus Programming, his mind is unable to support the installation of psionic barriers of any kind, making him extraordinary susceptible to such manipulation.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: His body is nigh-invulnerable due to his superhumanly dense cellular and anatomical structure as well as his radiating bio-electrical aura. Superboy, under some circumstances, is resistant or immune to different forms and levels of lacerations, blunt force trauma, energy-based assaults, falls from great heights, explosions, the cold void of space, toxins and all known diseases on Earth.
  • Official Couple: Engaged with Cassie Sandsmark.
  • Omniglot: Superboy can understand and speak many languages outside of English. He is at least fluent in Spanish, Atlantean, French, Korean, Arabic and Russian, among other languages. These languages were programmed in him by Cadmus and while M'Gann has excised a great deal of their programming from his mind, the linguistics were retained after exhaustive mental probes were conducted to be certain no hidden programming lay in the midst of these processes.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: Conner is a closet roleplaying enthusiast. Tim, Steph, Wally, and Marvin have a long-running fantasy campaign they indulge in every couple of weeks and Conner tags along with Cassie who was recruited sometime ago. Conner acts like he only plays to be nice, but according to his internet history Conner spends ample time visiting forums concerning this hobby.
  • Really Was Born Yesterday: He set out to be a superhero at a very young age, it helps that Cadmus created him as a teen.
  • Sensory Overload: Because of his super hearing, Superboy's ears are extra-sensitive to extreme noises.
  • Super Strength: Can lift buildings and throw larger enemies around like ragdolls.
  • Surfer Dude: Conner learns to surf while living in Hawaii and incorporates some surfer lingo and local pidgin into his already odd vocabulary.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Conner's favorite food is Martha Kent's rhubarb pie.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: He doesn't take well of the revelation of having Lex Luthor as his human donor, Conner went a bit mental at this information. He broke off his relationship with M’gann, distanced himself from the Kents, and moved to Hawaii.
  • Working with the Ex: With Miss Martian, he is still upset with her for keeping him from the truth.
  • X-Ray Vision: One of the last powers he develops.
  • Younger Than They Look: As a result of being made as a teenager he starts much younger than he looks.

    Impulse (Wally West)
Click for Civilian Look 

Wally West is the junior partner and nephew-by-marriage of Barry Allen a.k.a The Flash. When Cisco Ramon mentioned he had set up equipment to test that theory inside the particle accelerator, in a huge Contrived Coincidence, lightning suddenly struck the particle accelerator and Wally was bathed in them, giving him the same powers as the Flash. The Flash then taught Wally everything he knew about Super Speed and gave him the identity of Kid Flash. He is hotheaded and impatient, but quick witted and clever.

  • Fiery Redhead: Red-haired, Hot-Blooded, Keet. Do the math.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: Zig-Zagged. While Wally used to be an adamant skeptic about magic, even after he met the likes of Wonder Woman, Dr. Fate, Aquaman, and John Constantine, he was always a big believer in things like Bigfoot, alien abductions, conspiracy theories, and the Loch Ness monster. Nowadays, Wally believes in magic, but he still remains a skeptic of how versatile it can be and refuses to put his faith in it.
  • Friend to All Children: Wally is one of those grown-ups that will never grow up. He loves playing with kids (babies are a different story) and toys for all ages.

  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: He's one of the more popular and stronger heroes of the DCU and the fastest of Flashes.
  • Super Speed: Wally is arguably one of the fastest beings in all of existence. He is fast enough to easily outpace Superman. His top speed is unknown, but he has been clocked at moving Mach 18 (13,800 MPH).
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Like his Uncle Barry, Wally West refuses to kill but he does support the lawful application of the death penalty. But on more than one occasion, when his loved ones (particularly his Aunt Iris or Artemis) were put in danger, Wally has become very aggressive with the assailants and has admitted that in that moment he could have killed them.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Constantly bickering with Tim and Conner.

Artemis herself spent the first six years of her life in League training camps, safehouses, and the like. When Artemis was still a child, her mother was injured while protecting Nyssa al Ghul and her infant son from an attack by the HIVE. Since Paula’s injuries left her paralyzed, the League allowed Paula and her daughter to travel to the United States where they would maintain deep cover and see to the upkeep of League safehouses.

After she begged Bruce to take her in and being shot down as Bruce was in a dark place and had no interest in another "screwed up kid", Oliver Queen decided to show Artemis some mercy, after all her mother had saved the life of the son he had never had the chance to meet.

  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Because she's biracial, she has tanned skin and blonde hair.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Towards Wally mainly.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: Downplayed. Even though a professed atheist, Artemis has a profound respect for religions and spirituality as a whole.

  • Morality Chain: Though she has gotten better, Artemis has shown a certain degree of leniency toward her family and friends in the League of Assassins, even outright letting them escape. She once even clocked Wally across the back of the head to allow Cheshire a chance to escape. This has caused her to usually be benched or put on reserve status when dealing with the League of Assassins, much to Artemis' ire.
  • Official Couple: With her fiancee Wally West.

Click for Civilian Look 

Cassie Sandsmark is the daughter of archeologist single mother Helena Sandsmark in Gateway City. When Wonder Woman was spending more time in Gateway City and Cassie began to feel a strange bond to her. This bond became so familiar to Cassie that when she was Diana Prince at the Greek Exhibit, Cassie knew she was the Amazon princess. Before Cassie introduced herself, Circe arrived to steal a medallion from the exhibit, forcing Diana to run off for a quick costume change. To prevent Circe’s escape, Cassie grabbed some old weaponry from a display to stall Circe: but was chocked to find her touch woke the dormant magic in the archaic weaponry. After seeing this display, Wonder Woman took Cassie to Olympus to meet their shared deadbeat dad: Zeus.

  • Angrish: Cassie has a bad temper and has been known to throw things when upset. Thankfully, as she can throw cars and shipping containers, it's rare for her to do this with friends, family, and teammate arguments.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In her first Wonder Girl costume.
  • Bash Brothers: With Diana and Donna.
  • Clark Kenting: When Diana discovered that Cassie was planning to wear a wig to conceal her identity, Diana asked their half-brother Hephaestus to fashion a headband for Cassie which she could wear that would obscure the minds of those with a weaker will than Cassie herself and cause them to be unable to realize that Cassie and Wonder Girl were one and the same. This same effect was later incorporated into her sparkly pink armor.
  • Cool Aunt: Cassie serves this to Jason and Stephanie Trevor and she's often volunteer to babysit her nephew and niece when Diana and Steve are on meetings.
  • Distracted By The Cutie: Cassie thinks that babies are totally adorable. She has been known to become distracted if a baby is around her or break into quiet giggle fits if one makes eye contact with her.
  • Divine Parentage: Cassie is the demigoddess daughter of Zeus and human archeologist Helena Sandsmark.
  • Dysfunctional Family: With Zeus for a father and a mother who disapproves of your superhero career, it's understandable.

  • Heroic Bastard: She's the daughter of Zeus.
  • Heroic Willpower: Diana speculates that she inherited her sheer willpower from Zeus and believes Cassie may be just as stubborn as she is.
  • Hidden Depths: She's actually quite good at math, but because she slacks off her grades on the subject are rather low.

    • As the daughter of Zeus, Cassie shares his weakness to weapons made of Adamant. Injuries caused by such weapons inflict painful wounds upon the divine, causing damage which heals at a much slower rate.
    • Cassie is extremely resistant to blunt force attacks and has a vast tolerance for pain. However, she is more vulnerable to piercing weapons, such as arrows and bullets.
  • Legacy Character: The second Wonder Girl after Donna Troy.
  • Lethal Chef: Recently, Cassie decided to try her hand at bartending, as a hobby. She thinks she is like Tom Cruise in Cocktail, but in reality, she not only gets the drinks all wrong but she also breaks more bottles than she serves with her attempted tricks. None of her friends have had the nerve to tell her to stop and their beating around the bush on the matter only gets them scary glares from the demigoddess.
  • Not a Morning Person: Cassie is a heavy sleeper and by no means a morning person. She has been known to not only break alarm clocks, but also the nightstand they were resting on and even the floor below it.
  • Official Couple: Engaged with Conner/Superboy.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: A true cinephile, Cassie can quote hundreds of lines from dozens of movies at the drop of a hat.
  • Shock and Awe: Her lasso can electrocute those it ties up. This because, unlike Wonder Woman's Lasso of Truth, Cassie's is a weapon which channels Zeus' lightning in response to her rage.

  • Statuesque Stunner: At 5'11"/180cm tall, she's barely shorter than Conner, and quite the stunner.
  • Super Reflexes:
    • Cassie's reflexes are far beyond the limitations of the finest human athletes. She has been able to react to a barrage of gunfire from multiple opponents at once unharmed. Batman notes that the reflexes of the daughters of Zeus seem to exceed those of Kryptonians.
    • Cassie's agility is far beyond that of even an Olympic level athlete, as is her balance and coordination.
  • Super Strength: Part of the demigod child of Zeus power pack. Her Olympian flesh and bone is about one and a half times as dense as similar human tissue, contributing to the Olympians' superhuman strength and weight.
  • Tomboy: She started out as one, a dorky mythology buff who made zero attempts to appear feminine.

    Stargirl (Courtney Whitmore)
Click for Civilian Look 

Courtney Whitmore is the daughter of Barbara Whitmore, a single mother from Gotham City that had fled across the country to escape her abusive boyfriend and raise her then unborn daughter in peace. When she found the costume of the original Star-Spangled kid in her home, assuming the mantle for herself — much to the annoyance of her stepfather, engineer Pat Dugan. As a result, he built a robotic exoskeleton called S.T.R.I.P.E., and they began fighting crime together.

After Ted Knight aka Starman gave her his Cosmic Staff, Courtney rebranded herself as Stargirl, and she joined the Young Justice, Seven Soldiers of Victory and later the Justice League alongside S.T.R.I.P.E. She'd later serve as a member of the Team on her own, without the aid of her stepfather.

  • Badass Adorable / Cute Bruiser: Easily of the "cutest" superheroes in all of the DC Universe — but she can really pack a punch.
  • Badass Family: With S.T.R.I.P.E., her stepfather.
  • Badass Normal: Her powers are derived entirely from her staff.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Both as Stargirl and Star-Spangled Kid she exposes her midriff.
  • Boom Stick: Her Cosmic Staff.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Courtney is so much this at the start. She stole the costume solely to divorce her mom from her hated stepdad (who was never shown doing anything wrong to her). She also once hid pineapple, to which he was deathly allergic, under his pillow because he "annoyed her."
  • Captain Patriotic: Her superhero identity evokes American Patriotic Fervor.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Courtney's star belt gives her many abilities including Martial Arts, Super Strength and Agility, Hand Blast and Invulnerability.
  • Composite Character: She was also Star-Spangled Kid before officially becoming Stargirl.
  • Disappeared Dad: Courtney's biological father left when she was very young.
  • Flight: She wielded a Cosmic Staff that enabled her to fly.
  • Genki Girl: Her personality is very excitable.
  • The Heart: She's the one that everyone in the Team and Justice League can get along with.
  • Keeping Secrets Sucks: Her identity is secret, but it's not a good secret.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Her impetuosity sometimes gets the best of her performance.
  • Little Miss Badass: She was just a young girl when she became a superhero.
  • Magnetism Manipulation: The staff can attract or repel living beings or objects to/from itself.
  • Nice Hat: A cowboy hat given to her by Greg Saunders as a congratulations gift for successfully debuting as a hero.
  • Official Couple: She ends up dating Billy Batson/Captain Marvel.
  • Only Friend: Courtney is just about the only person who can stand Cassie's Motor Mouth for an extended period of time. It helps that they are the only women of the relatively same age on the team.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Stargirl's heroic outfit consists of a mixture of red, white, and blue.
  • Psychic Link: Her Cosmic Staff has the ability to attune itself to its current wielder; doing so makes it hard for the staff to become attuned to anyone else. It can receive mental commands from the wielder from certain distances.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: The Cosmic Rod/Staff can fire energy blasts, create force fields, levitate objects (including the user), project intense heat, make bright flashes, follow the user's mental commands wielded like a club/quarterstaff.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Stargirl is more associated with the Justice Society and the Teen Titans, and has never been a part of Young Justice or The Team.

    Micro (Ryan Choi)
Click for Civilian Look 

Asian American child prodigy, Ryan Choi is the son of a wealthy Hong Kong businessman and a world-class neurological surgeon. As Micro he's the protege and later partner of The Atom and also partners in crime with his girlfriend Giganta and later began teaching as an assistant professor at Ivy University. Older half-brother of Grace and Eugene Choi.

  • Afraid of Blood: Ryan has a mild fear of blood. While this usually does not interfere with his work as a hero (except for the occasional fainting or vomiting when discovering a particularly gory crime scene), Ryan's discomfort with blood kept his studies limited in regards to biology, anatomy, and medicine.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Growing up, Ryan was among the most gifted students in nearly every subject at the elite schools that his parents would send him to. When he was nine, Ryan spent a couple weeks in the summer at Ivy University’s special program for child prodigies and there he met Ray Palmer and Al Pratt, and could tell they were working on something revolutionary.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Unlike some Kryptonians, Ryan's glasses aren't just to hide his secret identity, but are required to see clearly at a distance. In his costume, Ryan has devised high-tech goggles to account for this need to give him other visual enhancements.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Is this with Giganta.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: Ryan Choi has the ability to shrink his body to varying degrees (including the subatomic level), achieved by storing most of his mass in a pocket dimension. Ryan can assume any size from his normal six-foot stature down to sub-microscopic, although he generally deems a height of six inches as most functional. He can also assume any weight at any height — up to his full 160 pounds.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: While shrunken, Micro is still capable of dealing powerful blows at opponents larger than him.
  • Primary-Color Champion: His default outfit is red and blue.
  • Related in the Adaptation: He's the half-brother of Grace Choi and Eugene Choi. He and Grace share father, while he and Eugene share mother.
  • Science Hero: In addition to his size-shifting powers, he uses flammable chemicals and some kind of stasis ray as weapons.
  • Simple Staff: Another of Ryan's inventions, his unique staff (or "Bangstick") is a particle drive device based on technology retrieved from the Reach. This device enables the Atom to propel his body at great speeds through subatomic environments and when used as a concussive weapon it delivers impacts with accelerated force.
  • Sizeshifter: He can also manipulate his density; one attack has him jumping up, increasing his density, and toppling his opponent over with the resultant quake.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Ryan is usually associated with the Justice League and has never been a member of Young Justice, but, since Ray Palmer is still The Atom, Ryan is now a member of The Team.
  • Teen Genius: Despite his young age, Ryan has a Ph.D. in physics and is an assistant professor at Ivy University. He is considered to be a world-class genius and a leading expert in a number of scientific fields. A modern-day renaissance man, much like his mentor Professor Palmer, Ryan seems to be truly capable of just about anything. Even Ray admits that Ryan is a superior technician, inventor, and engineer than he ever was. Ryan is considered to be the world's leading expert in the field of nanotechnology.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: He's the Tiny Guy to Doris's Huge Girl. Even with both at normal size, he's 5'4" shorter than her.

    Giganta (Doris Zeul)
Click for Civilian Look 

Giganta is Doctor Doris Zeul, a mousy scientist who was diagnosed with a rare blood disease. By the time Doris was a teenager, she was afforded a special scholarship to attend the special adolescent genius program at Ivy University. When Ray Palmer’s Bio-Belt malfunctioned, young geniuses Doris Zeul and Ryan Choi attempted to repair the belt. During their attempt, the Bio-Belt sent out a shockwave which soaked the genes of Doris, Ryan, and Ray.

Doris would then later discover she had the ability to reduce her size back to her original form, but also found that her original form had been altered. No longer was Doris a sickly, frail girl of unimpressive stature, she was a 6’6” tall girl with abs of steel and superstrength. Also, the childhood illness that had affected her for most of her youth was gone. Giganta as alumna of the Titans is also both resident medic and all around powerhouse addition to any team she’s on… as long as said team doesn’t have Wonder Woman in it.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Giganta is a heroine rather than a villainess in this universe. Though she doesn't like Wonder Woman like in canon.
  • Amazonian Beauty: She is quite muscular, as shown on her civilian outfit. Once a scrawny and frail girl with a weak immune system, Doris' power seems to have corrected this flaw, making her a 6'6" statuesque bombshell of a goddess with abs of steel and buns to match.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Attack Of the 50 Foot Woman, actually. Though in truth she can get much, much larger than that, reaching heights in excess of several hundred feet.
  • The Berserker: Without her stabilization suit, Doris can become deranged due to an overdose of euphoric hormones released when she takes on larger forms. In such states, Doris is often prone to gleefully destroying public property and can even easily become dangerously violent if frustrated.
  • Genius Bruiser: Doris has a Ph.D. in biology and zoology; and is also fully licensed doctor of both veterinary and human medicine. She is also an assistant professor at Ivy University. She is considered to be a world-class genius and a leading expert in a number of scientific fields, particularly primatology.
  • Giant Woman: She certainly lives up to her name.
  • Hollywood Autism: Maybe this isn't so much a personal weakness, but rather a problem with the rest of everyone. Doris is a high-functioning autistic savant. She has difficulty socializing and often comes across as someone without manners, but can be rather affectionate to those she considers part of her social bubble. Doris also tends to resort to violence when frustrated or when animals are threatened (she has a particular soft spot for apes and monkeys, especially gorillas).
  • Meaningful Name: The name 'Giganta' was taken from a childhood 'friend' of Doris, a large female mountain gorilla that lived in her parents' zoo.
  • My Suit Is Also Super: Giganta's suit is specialized to grow with her and enhances her invulnerability. Even at normal size, it is bulletproof and resistant to extremes of heat and cold.
  • Omniglot: Doris is fluent in over seven languages, including English, German, Spanish, Latin, "Gorhili" (the bastardized Bantu language spoken by the metagorillas of Gorilla City), Arabic, and French. Doris also knows American Sign Language.
  • Sizeshifter: Bigger than normal only.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Even in her normal size, she's still almost 7ft tall. The only other females that surpass her in height are Big Barda and Grace Choi.
  • Stern Teacher: She has a legitimate job as a very strict college professor at Ivy University.
  • Super Speed: Though most people think that Doris is quite slow when in her enlarged state, that is completely false. She maintains her normal reflexes and due to the length of her stride, she can cover an incredible amount of ground in a short period of time. Doris does tend to move with more deliberation out of concern for the environment and the shorter people around her, which is likely where this myth of being a slow giant originated.
  • Super Strength: Big and strong in her normal form, Giganta's strength increases exponentially when she grows, giving her muscular power far in excess of her already considerable size.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Thanks to being a hero on Earth-27, she's a member of The Team.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: She claims she was a longtime fan of Wonder Woman as a child, but when she met her idol she was very disappointed. The animosity remains in effect to this day. The two have quarreled and even come to blows a few times, but now mostly try to avoid one another.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: She's the Huge Girl to Ryan's Tiny Guy. Even with both at normal size, she has several inches on him.

    Doctor Marvel (Eugene Choi)
Click for Civilian Look 

Eugene Choi is the maternal half-brother of Ryan Choi and adopted brother of Grace Choi and also one of Billy's foster siblings. By uttering the name of the wizard Shazam, Eugene is granted the Wisdom of Solomon. As a result, he is Doctor Marvel, with doctor being an academic rank.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: His suit is green instead of white or grey like in the comics so it doesn't clash with Mary's.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Adverted. Though he's not super smart like his half-brother Ryan.
  • Clairvoyance: Solomon gives Eugene clairvoyance and provides him with counsel and advice in times of need.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Eugene's own transformed adult self is clad in green.
  • Magitek: His Technopathy is a combination of the Wisdom of Solomon along with him magically fusing with all of the electronic devices he carries on him at all times, turning him into a bit of a magical cyborg.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: Eugene initially felt jealous and inferior towards his siblings Ryan and Grace Choi, especially both having meta-genes as he originally lashed on Grace for this, which was catalyst on why Grace would run away shortly after her parents left town in the coming days.
  • Odd Name Out: He and Mary are the only members of Shazam family without an Alliterative Name.
  • Photographic Memory: Eugene's capable of memorizing anything he sees.
  • Related in the Adaptation: He's the younger half-brother of Ryan Choi and the adoptive brother of Grace Choi.
  • Shock and Awe: Eugene like the rest of the Marvel Family can summon lightning bolts and wield electricity, thanks to the Power of Zeus.
  • The Smart Guy: Eugene is the resident smart guy and tech savvy of the Vasquez family.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Rectangular shaped ones.
  • Super Intelligence: Solomon grants Eugene wisdom and a kind of clairvoyance/semi-omniscience as he can use the Wisdom of Solomon to know almost any objective fact about anything he encounters.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Eugene has only been part of the Marvel family in the comics, but here he's the representative of the Shazam family on The Team.
  • Technopath: By using the Wisdom of Solomon He can hear and speak to electronic devices, and even order parked cars to move out of the way.

    Omen (Lilith Clay)
See the Other Teams page

    Lagoon Boy (La'Gann) 
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's always excited to kick ass.
  • Fish People: Unlike Jackson, Garth, and Tula, who have more "pure" human blood (the last two are pure-blooded Atlanteans), La'gaan has green skin, red eyes, fins, and gills, but manages to look humanoid.
  • Magic Knight: Like Aqualad, he combines magic with weapon-based combat training.
  • Sizeshifter: Can expand like a puffer fish.

    Secret (Greta Hayes)
Click for Civilian Look 

The ghost of a girl murdered in a ritual. Having been killed by her adoptive brother Billy Hayes, she remained stuck on this plane of existence as a ghost. This makes her a gateway between the living and the dead, allowing her abilities including flight, teleportation, shapeshifting, and taking souls to the other side.

  • Cain and Abel: The Abel of Billy Hayes' Cain.
  • Demonic Possession: By forcing herself into the air passageways of someone, Greta was able to control that person's body.
  • Dimension Traveller: In addition to her ability to teleport, Secret has the ability to bring others into a pocket dimension that only she has been shown to be able to access.
  • Electrified Bathtub: Secret was originally killed by this method.
  • Flight: As an ethereal being, Secret can levitate and fly through the air at will, although she seems to be able to allow herself to be subject to gravity.
  • Fog Feet: A part of being a ghost.
  • Identity Amnesia: She cannot remember who she was before her murder.
  • Intangibility: Secret typically remains in an intangible state. Solid matter and some forms of energy have been able to pass through her body without causing her harm. Secret is, however, susceptible to electric and magic-based attacks, even though she is mostly intangible.
  • I See Dead People: Secret can sense when death is about to happen, and she can sense when death has just occurred.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: When Greta was killed by her brother, she was able to stay on the earthly plane as a warder, someone who guides spirits who have just died to the afterlife. She has an ethereal body with a unique power set.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She replaces Violeta Campos/Revenant to the Challengers Of The Unknown as the resident ghost girl after the soft reboot.
  • Teleportation: Secret has the ability to "smoke jump," as she calls it. Using this ability, she can teleport herself and/or others in a puff of smoke. She has been able to travel considerable distances with her smoke jumps.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Secret can alter her form to look like whatever she wishes. She still retains the same color scheme, but the shape can be changed to make her look like other things.
