After escaping from
Fite & Maad in the Super-Cycle, Young Justice found themselves in an
underground cavern deep beneath the Earth.
Escape would be impossible as the Super-Cycle decided to lock
itself down, forcing Young Justice to explore the strange cavern.
What they found was a version of Hell.
Stumbling upon a huge cavern filled with screaming victims, disco
lights, and disco music, welcome to "Dante's Inferno".
Introducing himself as
"Dante", he believed that he was on the same side of Young
Justice and actually welcomed the team as guests to his home.
Dante went on to explain that his father was a mob informant and
was killed in an explosion that killed his mother as well. Dante
stumbled upon the "Inferno" as well as the little winged
creatures there that fed off pain and misery.
Dante and a
"little friend" would find bad people to drug and bring them
to the "Inferno". Dante
went on to state that, "It did not take long to convince each new
arrival that he or she had died while asleep, and was now
serving the fate that
so richly deserved. While
they're here, I learn information that is of use to me. Secret bank accounts, useful code words and numbers.
Their ill-gotten gains become mine, enabling me to continue my
work here." Dante
believed this to be justice. Young
Justice decided to oppose him. Dante offered Young Justice the chance to
leave quietly and unopposed, Robin decided that the victims needed to be
let free. The battle didn't last long, as Dante's little winged friends,
quickly latched on to the members of Young Justice, making them his
zombies. (Young Justice #12)
In Leesburg, home of
Supergirl, one of
the demons that Dante used to latch on to YJ appeared and latched itself
on to Reverend Varel. In
there area Supergirl and Comet quickly responded to the screams of Linda
Denver's mother. Using her heat vision, Supergirl removed the winged creature
and joined Comet as he went in pursuit of the creature. Flying through
the sewers, Comet and Supergirl stumbled upon a new "chaos
stream." Separating from Comet, Supergirl found herself in the
"Inferno", quickly coming to the aid of Superboy who was
battling with one of Dante's "little friend".
After the gorilla-like creature was defeated, a sucker punch by
Wonder Girl sent Superboy flying. Supergirl
noticed another one of the winged creatures on the neck of Wonder Girl.
As she started to try to get the creature off of Wonder Girl,
Supergirl soon found herself under attack by the rest of the members of
Young Justice, including a newly hypnotized Superboy. (Supergirl #36)
After fending off the
attack of Young Justice, Supergirl found the person controlling the
heroes, Dante. After a weak
attack by Dante, he suddenly found himself overly mismatched power wise
with Supergirl and flew away in fear, with Supergirl following right
behind him. After Young Justice regrouped, instead of trying to go after
Supergirl, they decided to do the next best trash her home town of
Leesburg. Supergirl again tried to confront Dante, even going so
far as to mention the name of "God", unwittingly bringing new
problems into the situation. Dante
led Supergirl straight into a trap, bringing her right in to the
presence of "Dis". (Young
