This one got a little too meta for my taste. Our newly revealed villain, Mickey Mxyzptlk, has a big monologue about Young Justice being a “generation in limbo” that wasn’t “set up for success” by their elders. This story has had a meta layer to it from the get-go. But it lays it on a little too thick here.

Thankfully there’s still a lot of good stuff here, particularly about the Young Justice team being a family. Dark Crisis: Young Justice may still be the best thing to come out of the Dark Crisis event overall.
