Young Justice #16

With everyone back on Earth and safe, and the S.T.A.R. Labs scientists who sent Superboy to Gemworld in custody, the Boy of Steel turns his attention to Impulse who has had quite a journey getting Young Justice back together (although at first he's a tad reluctant to go into details).

Young Justice #16 brings up an interesting idea about Bart Allen who has traveled across the Multiverse and through time. Just how old is he? We're given fragments of Bart's story by campfire involving getting trapped in a dystopian future on another Earth after a battle with the Mirror Master and then struggling to get back home after he discovered something had shifted reality across the Multiverse.

Although several characters make appearances in the flashbacks, and Drake shows up at the end, this is really a two-character issue focused on Impulse's story and his friendship with Conner which was a driving force to right what he saw wrong with the universe. Now, what are the ramifications of that decision?
