"What would have happened if Red Tornado had a different sort of program in place during the events of the Season 1 finale. How could the events of this change the story? As timelines collide and new heroes and villains appear, it can only get more complicated. For no villain can be worse than Project Nextgen. Multiple harems. Marvel influence though Young Justice World."
— Official summary

Young Justice Next Gen, by Crossoverpairinglover, features a Young Justice World, where the Light's plot during the Season 1 end was successful, with a variety of repercussions in history.


One of the key elements of the story is the Next Gen chip. Originally created by Ra's al Ghul as a way to get Bruce to marry his daughter, the chips end up inside Dick, Wally and Conner, the latter due to a successfully starroed Aqualad, who had been given it by Red Tornado (whose programming caused him to, instead of shutting down, passively resist and grab some of said chips instead), and the other two due to the fact that the Next Gen chip makes the occupant immune to starro tech. However, there are side effects. One of which being that the chips can affect females (or males, by Word of God) that are attracted to someone who has one, and with mutual attraction vice versa, can cause... funny business.

This page is still in progress, all help would be appreciated.


This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Abusive Parents: Emma Frost's father is not a good guy. Ra's Al ghul and Black Manta, while normally good parents, are sort of this considering they are good parents to their staroo'd children.
  • Anti-Hero: Wolverine, Rose Wilson, Thor and Deadpool from the start
  • Adaptation Distillation: The author, while using the Young Justice World as it is, features elements from other DC T.V shows, pre and post The New 52 continuity, Marvel, Ben 10 and Generator Rex, and likely more.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Many characters who are not normally villainous are, due to being under the control of the Light.
    • To a lesser extent, Hulk who kills a couple of the Light controlled heroes unlike the comics version that doesn't kill. More of an Anti-Hero really...
  • Adaptational Wimp: Many of his Marvel characters, such as Spider-Man and Nightcrawler do not seem to have as many powers or skills as in the comics. The author has said that they will get better with training, but has not shown it yet.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bad Future: The future has been glanced several times: and it's a civil war between Superboy's team and Kid Flash's. What happened to Robin's team, or the Justice League and Light, is unknown. Impulse's bad future still did appear, though it may no longer exist as it hasn't been visited since.
  • Balanced Harem: the author tries to keep this, but YMMV if it works
  • Bi the Way: Deadpool and Queen Bee. The Next Gen chips do cause some level of attraction in the females affected, but so far nothing has come of it.
    • In fact, having feelings about other girls is part of Zatanna's internal conflict
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: The Light.
    • Big Bad Duumvirate: The Light has competition in the form of Ultron, Apocalpyse, Doctor Doom and the Amazo-Sentinels. This is forming the begining of a Enemy Civil War, after Ultron kills Ocean Master.
    • Also joined by Symbiotes and a Red Skull from a Marvel Universe
  • Big Brother Instinct: When the Light captured Paige for a Living Battery, Cannonball focused everything he had to save her. it cost him his life, but he helped free Paige, and began the second, non Light controlled release.
  • Blessed with Suck: Some of the empowered characters are of this mindset. Among them are Thing, Husk and Storm.
    • after having Rex hack the Omnitrix, it becomes this for Ben. Due to the Omnitrix going into a random, infinite form cycle, he begins to suffer pain from the constant DNA alterations.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: due to the Light attacking the team after tracking them down via Rose's eye, the team is broken into three parts. Superboy, Miss Martian, Rocket, Sphere, Wolf and Caitlin Fairchild remain with the ship, Wally, Artemis and Rose end up in Tennesee due to Magik's limbo stick, and Dick, Zatanna and Barbara end up in Themiscarya. They still have yet to track each other down
  • Brought Down to Normal: Superboy due to golden Kryptonite.
  • Canon Immigrant: A version of Jurassic Park's Site B was sucked in from another story to become the Next Gen Savage Land.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Impulse, using the Speedforce, manages to knock Trigon's influence off the Earth to save Raven.
  • Curbstomp Battle: The Phoenix Force absolutely decimated the Light's forces, though it ended up bound to the earth and inside Jean and Emma
  • Driven by Envy: because he was injured and unable to care for Dick, Doctor Doom believes that Batman stole his last family member. His entire motivation is to make Dick be his again, and kill all who 'replaced him'. He only lets those in Dick's Next-Gen harem live because he knows that they are tied to his life force, there is a Stay in the Kitchen option after all. The logic aside...well Doctor Doom did have that Irrational Hatred of his with Reed in canon, so it is true to him
  • Evil Counterpart: Inverted, in story Amethyst is the Lord of Order to Klarion's Lord of Chaos
  • Evil Uncle: Dick has one in the form of his uncle Rick, aka Doctor Doom.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: At various times, the Light has shown to have certain values. Lex Luthor doesn't deal with drugs while Queen Bee doesn't tolerate male sexual aggression on females. Of course, the characters themselves are by no means perfect, but they have some level of standards.
  • Expendable Clone: The Light takes a bit too much fun in this.
  • Eye Scream: Played With. Rose finds out she has a Light tracking chip in her she willngly removes it.
  • Fandom Rivalry: In universe example: Peter Parker and Virgil Hawkins argue over if Yu-Gi-Oh is better than Pokemon. Similarly, Wally West and Deadpool seem to be Star War and Star Treck fans, respectively.
  • The Fashionista: The Wasp, who was chosen over Bumblebee partially because she is a costume designer, to avoid Fridge Logic as to where all the Sensual Spandex would have come from.
  • French Maid Outfit: Perdita has Artemis, Rose and Paige dress up in these.
  • G-Rated Drug: Pixie's dust allows her to put people in a variety of hallucinations. Some scenes range from Disney Acid Sequence's with the Light in the seventies to other examples of Funny Moments.
  • Happily Married: Wolverine and Mariko. Technically the Next Gen chipped....
  • Has Two Mommies: Aside for Superboy with Lex Luthor and Superman, you also have Nightcrawler and his yet unnamed sister.
  • Hell on Earth: Rotworld was this, thankfully it was just a Dream Apocalypse created by Odin
  • Hollywood Atheist: Played with. Impulse's future had all religions destroyed, so he doesn't know what faith is. However, he doesn't convert, and while the author is a self proclaimed atheist, he shows how Impulse's unintentionally harsh comments are not well received by religious characters like Nightcrawler.
  • An Ice Person: Iceman, the Light's Ice villains.
  • Killed Off for Real: Several characters are killed, however many of them, as Light minions, are cloned in mass. Some characters who have died, and are not cloned in mass, include Captain Atom, Cannonball, James Gordon, Hippolyta, Mariko Yashida, Jay Garrick, Wolverine, Polka Dot Man and the original Black Canary, Red Arrow, Zatara and his clone.
    • a version of Black Panther and Baron Blitzkrieg also die
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Ranging from famous characters like Spiderman, Storm and Cyclops, to Amethyst, Pixie and Dust. He actually keeps a list, which he sometimes posts at the end of arcs.
  • Mass Super-Empowering Event: The Light created a mutagen to create an army of super soliders. However, it got out into the world: the first time in planned and controlled intervals, the second time when a huge mass of the mutagen gas gets thrown into the atmosphere, affecting random people at random times.
  • Most Common Superpower: Played With. The female characters, while all shown to have breasts (the character list for the above loads of characters listing this), the sizes aren't all massive. The characters with larger breasts are generally older, or in comics particularly known for it, while more petite characters like Kitty Pryde, Dust or Cassandra Cain are shown to be quite petite. Played Straight with Emma Frost, as her powers actually did render herself far more 'talented' than she had been.
  • Papa Wolf: Wolverine to his daughters, adopted or otherwise: Shadowcat, Jubilee, X-23 and Armor.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The Hulk.
  • Physical God: Perdita gains god like powers over Vlatava due to the Mutagen.
  • Refusal of the Call: Storm doesn't want to be a hero she eventually changes her mind after being imprisoned by the Red Skull
  • Shown Their Work: The Author does a lot of research, and it shows.
  • Shout-Out: When Perdita is flying through Vlatava, she finds a Cabbage Merchant yes, him, who is crying about his cabbage. She uses her powers to give him a long awaited Pet the Dog moment and grow him new cabbages.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: The Phoenix Force's life half ends up trapped in Jean Gray, while the destruction half ended up in Emma Frost in a case of Sealed Evil in a Can.
  • Take That!: The author, at various times, has used the story to take pot shots at the Birdflash pairing, Rob Liefeld, Brian Michael Bendis, Miss Martian being a mind rapist, and himself. Most all by Deadpool and his Breaking the Fourth Wall.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Superboy believes this greatly. This, as hinted by Word of God, ends up a major plot point, said to be a Civil War
  • Timeskip: A year after the end of Season 1, after Superboy looses his powers.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Several characters manage this, including Rocket, who manages to show off her full potential and go up against a Symbiote enhanced and controlled Superboy. Ben later manages this when the Omnitrix unlocks 'Super Ben', allowing him to recover and give a pounding to the Light controlled Superman
  • Wham Episode: Chapter Eleven Superboy looses his powers permanently and accidentally reprograms M'Gann to be unable to kill or Mind Rape
    • Chapter Seventeen the team gets split into three groups and separated
  • Wolverine Publicity: Played with. Wolverine did indeed appear. He was one of the few adult characters to have a heroic role. However, he was killed by Rainmaker.
