I prefer to think of every Cartoon Network cartoon as existing in the same continuity.

Samurai Jack is the first. That happens in the far distant past, or begins Jack challenges Aku and attempts to destroy him, but Aku, gravely wounded and knowing mortal peril, flings Jack into the future, "where my evil is law."

Damaged gravely from his confrontation with Jack, Aku enters a state of hibernation. Time passes, and the majority of cartoon network shows occur in this period of modern day, such as Dexter's Lab, Ed Ed and Eddy, Powerpuff Girls, Grim Adventures, ect.

However, at some point in the very near future, Aku has fully recovered, awakens, and attempts to take over the world. The heroes of the world (adult Powerpuff Girls, an adult Dexter, Coop and the Megas XLR, ect) attempt to stop Aku, but lacking the Jack's sword (forged by Odin, Ra, and Vishnu, and possessing the power to "channel one's inner righteousness"), they inevitably fall in a doomed battle against Aku and his evil minions.

Free of any who could oppose him, Aku carries out his designs upon the mortal world, and takes control of the entire planet, even extending his reach beyond it to distant stars.

Jack reappears, having been "flung into the future, where my evil is law," and is forced to embark on a quest to return to the past, and undo the future that Aku has created. We even see how he is meant to do so in Episode 32; there exists a time portal that Jack is destined to enter at a later date, after he has undertaken many other adventures in the dystopic future Aku has created.

You seem to be assuming that Coop and Megas don't start suplexing Aku Kaiju through skyscrapers once Finn and Jack come back and stop it from being a Fight That Cannot Be Won.

Sounds something like "Grim tales from down below" from Bleedman at snafu comics, which includes Grim, grown up PPG and Mandy, Aku, Raven(from TT-GO) Coop and many many more. But i dont know if it's good or not, I have only read a few.

But there's a problem. Samurai Jack was canceled. The series never ended, and Jack never went back to the past. That means something, somewhere, went horribly wrong. Aku somehow prevented Jack from returning to the past, possibly by sealing the time portal in an object (like a sword) and then hiding that object in a place Jack could not reach or find, thereby preventing Jack from ever fulfilling his destiny and traveling back to the past.

Having thwarted destiny and averted fate, Aku trapped Jack in the future. With no way to return to the past and undo all that Aku had done, Jack had no choice but to let the evils that Aku had wrought stand, and settle for defeating Aku in the future, sealing him there, and allowing the world to heal.

And heal it did. . . for a time. The world had become a strange place, and time only made it stranger. But the world was rebuilt, time marched on, and civilization rose once again.

Only to fall for a second time, not due to the forces of darkness, but to the arrogance and conceit of the world itself. A second apocalypse took place, unmaking nearly all that had come before. Mountains were leveled, oceans dried up, deserts flooded, and the world changed irrevocably.

Man began to die. Their numbers dwindled. Until in the end, in the far, far distant future, on an Earth where the scars of evil's claws and mortal hubris have been blurred and dulled by the passage of time, we find ourselves face to face with the last man, the last human, alive.

Finn, the Human.

And in a shadowed glade in a distant forest forgotten by time, amist the mossy scars and rusted wreckage of some terrible battle long ago, Finn fines a statue of a strange looking demon, with a sword buried in it's chest.

Finn draws the sword. And thus does his final and greatest adventure begin. Aku, free of the suppressing power of the blade, can wreak havoc once again, and there is no hope in this future, for this sword was not meant for his hands. . . but another was. Finn must do what those heroes who came before him could not. He must find the Timeblade hidden by Aku, and use it to return the Sword of Righteousness to it's rightful owner. Only by wielding the blade of time, the weaponized form of the Guardian itself, can the passage of time be reversed, and Aku's evil be vanquished at it's roots, once and for all. Finn, the last human, the last hero, must travel back, and with the aid of those heroes whose names he never new and faces he had never met, must carve a path for Jack, so that at last, at the very beginning, this saga might find an end.

But Finn's heart is torn. For he has found friends and adventure in the future. He has found a home. And if he leads Jack all the way back to his birthplace in the past, then Finn will destroy his own future, his own happiness and home. . . and unmake himself.

And so the last man, the last hero, Finn the Human, must decide, there at the end and beginning of all things, what matters more: What is right, or what one loves?

And the best part of this whole thing?

We know Finn's choice. He chooses the future he never knew, and was never a part of, erasing himself in the process. Because the end of the Dexter movie shows the future as it truly becomes (a utopia), and not the aberrant cycle of death and suffering and world-ending catastrophe that it became (Samurai Jack, Adventure Time).

Finn destroyed himself to save us all. Finn is the world's greatest hero that it will never remember.

Good theory, but the Samurai Jack movie isn't dead! When it does come to pass Genndy Tartakovsky intends to provide closure at long last to the series. It's all been hinted already! Jack is to become a leader, a king, a paragon, what ever you choose to call it, in his later life. He will lead the world against Aku, before striking him down and returning to the past. Look at all the friends he's made: Ape men, Spartans, monks (Human and lizard), mammoths, sea people, gladiators, dragons, scientists, and Scots! When it goes down, he won't be facing off against Aku alone, he'll be their messiah and then be worthy of the portal guarded by the blue man.

There's no maybe about it. I have zero creativity, so any even half-decent story I ever see is impressive. Not to say yours was half-decent, or anything. I can really tell that you put quite a bit of thought & effort into that, & I respect you for it.

Call me a killjoy, but may I put my two cents in?

I read that Samurai Jack will not ever be given closure, because the creator said he would leave it off of the note of "A samurai's journey will never end." or something like that.

Jack doesn't have a cowlick though. That's a traditional samurai top knot. Kinda like the style Iroh and Zuko had before they went traitor.

No. It's all about how your hair line originates. If you have a section on your head where the hair growth forms a spiral instead of a straight line that is called a cowlick.

Maybe I was too specific. Let me rephrase that, "Any hair that grows differently from the rest of the group."

This in turn keeps it from flattening out.

You're still a dumbass for believing a "malformed skull" is the reason for a cowlick.

1. I did not say a malformed skull was the cause of a cowlick. I said that as a joke referring to the impossible.
2. Its not permenant, wash your hair, or wear a at for a few hours and itll be completely gone

and here we find the aftermath of the power puff girls from the incident at their high school prom were Buttercup found her prom date Peanut in the back room with Blossom doing the nasty at the moment the great battle was underway the world as they knew it will be no more. During the worlds destruction the professor having blamed himself for the worlds doom went on pilgrimage to Japan to gain access to the time travel technology. By using time travel the professor would undo his accident with the creation of great power. However Mojojojo who liked the chaos followed the professor and changed the time coordinates sending him further back in time. Many years latter The professor married and many year latter his great grandson "Jack" was born

What? No. As the dude below said, they're not married. In fact, the creator of PPG is married to the creator of the new My Little Pony, Lauren Faust, who in fact has nothing to do with Samurai Jack.
