“Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen: Part 1” features the Justice League – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern (Jessica Cruze), and Cyborg – transported to a mysterious new world where they have been turned into teenagers and with no memory of how they got there. While searching for answers, they eventually encounter Team RWBY (pronounced “Ruby”) who are a Huntress team of former Beacon Academy students comprised of Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long.
Also struggling to piece together their memories, Team RWBY decide to join forces with the Justice League to solve the mystery while also engaging in combat with the Grimm; a species of mindless yet deadly creatures.
