A Blast From the Past (Young Justice Next-Ge...
It's been five years since the covert ops team of the Justice League was formed.
A lot can happen. A lot has happened. Death, loss, pain, betrayal, happiness, joy, love, and excitement as team members come and go.
Even with all this excitement, even with all that's going on, and with all the new friends and teammates and proteges, the team's original nine members can't help but feel like something is missing. It doesn't help that when Blue Beetle, aka Jaime Reyes, and his best friend the Brass Beetle, join the team towards the end of the year 2015, there is something distinctly familiar about the two, even though the teens insist that they've never personally met any of the heroes before.
Then one day, one day, nearly a month after the fateful Reach invasion and the death of the original Kid Flash, it all comes rushing back.
I ran to the mission room, trying to ignore the vibration humming through the station that made my legs feel like jelly. Artemis, Zatanna, M'gann, Connor, Raquel, and Aqualad were already there, staring in astonishment at a fading light in the center of the room.
When the light cleared, there were ten kids standing in the center of the room. My brain felt a bit fuzzy, but I felt like I knew some of them. Like the girl with Blue Beetle's armor, or the boy wearing a magician's suit like Zatanna's.
Then one of the older-looking girls looked up at me. Long blonde ponytail, pale skin, red shirt, black pants and piercing green eyes.
I did know them. I knew her.
Her name was Sandy, and she was my daughter from the future.
