DC Comics Universe, Wonder Comics & Young Justice #6 Spoilers & Review: Superboy, Robin, Impulse, Wonder Girl & Newbies Fight, But All Is NOT As It Seems?! Plus Doomsday Clock & Doctor Mahattan’s Metaverse Surfaces?

DC Comics Universe, Wonder Comics and Young Justice #6 Spoilers and Review follows.

Superboy, Robin, Impulse, Wonder Girl and Newbies Take On A Big Threat, But All Is NOT As It Seems?!

Plus Doomsday Clock & Doctor Mahattan’s Metaverse Surfaces?

We open with one page storyline catch-up and Young Justice team roll call.

The book opens with Superboy Kon-El explaining what happened to him; he winked out of existence…

…and showed up on Gemworld. He attributes that to the Gem and not Metaverse…

…a concept introduced in Doomsday Clock #10 (full spoilers here) that explained Wally West the Flash’s return to DC in DC Universe Rebirth #1.

Superboy sees a pregnant woman being persecuted by palace guards and pretends to be her husband to encourage the guards yo leave her alone. Her husband is dead and the guards don’t want to deal with the super strong Superboy.

Superboy and the woman stay together until he can return to where he belongs; Superboy is the only father her kid now knows.

Back in the present, Robin is trying to find out what Superboy’s last memories are and explains that someone (Doctor Manhattan of the Watchmen) wiped his mind (and others’ minds) to forget Young Justice (and the rest of the pre-Flashpoint DC Comics multiverse).

We then get introduced a bit more to Young Justice newbies Teen Lantern…

…Jinny Hex and…

…Amethyst; plus we learn about how Gemworld works.

Dark Opal attacks seeking his house’s Opal Prime.

Amethyst has broken the rules of Gemworld by laying her hands on another’s house’s prime gem and tells her that despite his actions she’s the one that will be banished.

Nonetheless, the team beats Dark Opal!

They’re going to head back to Earth so Kon-el Superboy (Conner Kent) says good-bye to his “wife” and her son.

The book ends with Amethyst apologizing for breaking the rules of Gemworld, but believing she had no choice in dealing with the threat of Dark Opal.

The Council sends her and the team away and when they are gone it’s revealed that they’ve been banished…

…not sent back to Earth, but lost somewhere in the multiverse.

The Pulse:

Compelling plot, intriguing character moments, awesome art wrapped in a bow. Very fun. 9 out of 10.
