Neutron YJ
General Information
Real name: Nathaniel Tryon
Portrayed by: James Arnold Taylor
Appearances: Young Justice


Early LifeEdit

In 2056, a depowered and scarred Neutron wearing a prison uniform and inhibitor collar trusted Impulse to go back in time and prevent the apocalyptic future he had helped create, through such acts as killing the Flash. He gave Impulse a pill of unknown substance that would revert him back into a normal human. After Impulse jumped back in time, Neutron's scars and all evidence that he had ever been incarcerated disappeared, but he realized that the future around him was still the same.

Young Justice InvasionEdit

In "Bloodlines", Neutron's meta-gene was tampered with by aliens of unknown origin. He was mind-controlled to wreck mayhem in Central City, and challenge the Flash. Both the Flash and Impulse rushed to challenge him. Due to an omnidirectional attack that Neutron kept unleashing, both speedsters retreated, where they met up with Kid Flash. All three speedsters decided to create a whirlwind around Neutron, which would propel him into the sky. In the air, Neutron went critical and blew up himself and a large part of town. The control disk, along with Neutron's containment suit, was destroyed in the explosion. Neutron reformed himself and was about to blow up again, this time with much greater consequences. He had regained consciousness, but was no longer able to control his power. The Flash resolved to speed Neutron to a desert, where he would blow up and not harm anyone. Impulse joined in the task, which ended up with both speedsters tripping due to Impulse's (intentional) misstep as Neutron was about to blow again. Jay Garrick and Kid Flash bailed them out at the last second, allowing Neutron to unleash another explosion. As the speedsters discussed the failed maneuver, Flash stating directly that Impulse tripping them both saved his life, Impulse rushed to a reforming Neutron and applied the pill, reverting him to a human.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

  • Energy Emission: Neutron has the ability to produce and release cascading omnidrectional energy waves which can cause destruction to the nearby environment. The energy waves are released automatically, such that the next energy wave is released before the first energy wave fades. This prevents even speedsters like the Flash from attacking him directly without being hit by the cascading energy waves. Neutron can also release energy blasts from his hands. Neutron's powers are so destructive that he needs to have a containment suit which stabilizes his energy and prevents him from detonating himself. Neutron has shown to survive disintegration, able to regenerate from nothing.


  • Containment Suit: Neutron wore a containment suit to stabilize his energy from being detonated and prevent the cause of a huge explosion. The suit seemed to stabilize him by releasing energy in the form of omnidirectional waves.
