In Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen , Part One, the Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, The Flash, and Vixen) were transported to a simulated world of Remnant, where they fought alongside Team RWBY (pronounced Ruby), made up of Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long, all of whom are huntresses who protect their realm from very dangerous creatures known as Grimm. Though the Justice League had been turned into teenagers and lost some of their powers, with RWBY’s assistance they were able to defeat the evil Kilg%re and return to their proper places.
In Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen, Part Two, the Justice League are back home, but they need help because the Earth has been overrun with Grimm and they are barely being held back by the reserve members of the Justice League (no, we are not told who is on reserve or see them in action). In fact, the war against the Grimm has gotten so bad that even some villains are willing to help the Justice League and RWBY try to fight them off (Weather Wizard, Killer Croc, and Mirror Master – not one A-lister in the bunch).
Placing the Justice League on Remnant as teenagers in Part One was far more interesting than putting RWBY on Earth in Part Two. There just aren’t enough differences between the RWBY characters in their Earth forms. We are supposed to believe that going to Earth brings problems and changes, but they are just too small to help propel the story. Instead, the writers chose to focus more on action sequences. This is not a bad choice because what RWBY has in spades is spectacular fight choreography. The fight sequences are dynamic, “realistic,” and will bring viewers to the edges of their seats.
