Default The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Signup/OOC Thread




The road to hell is always paved with good intentions. And none now know that better than the heroes of the DCU. In the midst of a cataclysmic event perpetrated by the cosmic overlord known across the universe as Darkseid, heroes and villains alike found themselves caught between a power struggle of epic proportions. It was once believed that The Green Lantern Corps were the sole wielders of the most powerful weapons in the universe, but that all changed with the emergence of the color factions. Blue, Red, Yellow, Orange, Violet, and even Black Lantern Corps began to emerge from the cosmos, bringing both hope and destruction in their wake - a fact of which Darkseid was determined to reap for reward.

But with his inevitable defeat at the hands of The Man of Steel, who had triumphantly returned from a multiverse spanning quest to revive his fallen cousin Kara Zor-El, only questions were left in the void of Darkseid's nearly prosperous invasion of Earth. For Hal Jordan, The Green Lantern of Sector 2814, it was how to carry on following the tragic death of his infant son Martin - for who he was forced to kill himself, threatened by the menace of Sinestro Corps' member Kryb. For Bruce Wayne, The Batman, it was how to keep Gotham City under control in the midst of his greatest enemy's promotion to Yellow Lantern. For Barry Allen, The recently returned Flash, it was how to keep up in a world that had seemed to pass him by while protecting his loved ones from the cosmic menace. And for all of Atlantis, it was why they suddenly felt a deep void enter their lives without explanation.

Now there is both hope and bloodshed left for them all.

With his reign of chaos over, The Joker was fatally shot through the skull and left to a death without comedy.

Aquaman, The King of Atlantis, finally materialized after being lost within reality itself.

Damian Wayne, the son of Batman, has now found a new mentor in The Dark Knight's psychotic ex-partner, Jason Todd.

Dick Grayson has just had his marriage proposal accepted by longtime love Barbara Gordon.

Superman has just received the news that his wife of many years, Lois Lane, is expecting a child.

And perhaps most surprisingly of all, Guy Gardner - banished from The Green Lantern Corps - has now received a power beyond any the universe has ever seen.

The time for grieving is over, as the final dawn eclipses the entire DC Universe. The end draws near in this penultimate season of seven years of grand storytelling. World of Heroes, Season IX: The Final Chapter is here!

On top of his genius mind, Batman uses his resources of Wayne Enterprises to have the best technology available.

Bruce Wayne was just a child when he watched his parents murder. That night, as he laid in the blood of Thomas and Martha Wayne, he made a solemn vow that he would seek justice.

Training his body and his mind, Bruce became the crime fighter know as Batman. Many years after taking up his quest, his greatest enemy, the Joker, killed him battle. Being resurrected by Talia Al Ghul, Bruce was rescued by the unlikely team of Joker and Alfred Pennyworth. Soon after returning to Gotham, Bruce rescued his son, Damian, from the clutches of the League of Assassins and participated in fighting Darkseid and his forces.

On the return home, Bruce discovered Damian had ran away from home, meeting and befriending former Robin Jason Todd. Now, Bruce ventures out into the night to look for his son and the former ally who has claimed him as his own.

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):




Crime Alley

It's the one location in Gotham that lives up to its name. Crime Alley has witnessed its fair share of tragedy, almost all of it related to me. This street was the death bed of my parents, as well as the birth place of Batman. This is the same location the Joker killed me, and it was here that I recovered from Talia's brainwashing. So much death and birth.

It's another death that brings me to the street again.



"The Spectre is dead."

"Come again."

"The Spectre is dead," I say into the microphone.

"You mean the Angel of Vegence Spectre?"

I walk around the body, inspecting the crime scene from as many angles as possible. A single gunshot to the robed figure's forehead.

"It's either him or someone appearing to be him."

"I don't think it's the Spectre. Isn't he an angel or something?"

"That's what the current speculation is."

I tap a button on my cowl, and the lenses over my eyes shine UV light.

"Are you plugged into the visual?"

"Yes, and it's recording. I'm catching audio as well."

"From the ultraviolent light, it appears the victim died from the single gunshot wound to the head. Strangely, there appears to be no blood from the wound to the head. Evidence at the mouth of the alley indicates there may have possibly been a struggle. A set of footprints I see do in fact match those of the victim. Several other footprints are around the victim's prints. That could indicate the struggle was many assailants against one....there appears to be a bullet lodged in the alley wall. The bullet's metal jacket appears to be made of some unorthodox metal. Bullet has been secured inside my utility belt pouch and will be processed for evidence later in the cave. That seems to be all the physical evidence present. End recording."

The UV light disappears and my vision is returned back to normal.

"Once you have the audio and visual ready, forward a copy of the report to the computer in the cave."

"Done. What about the bullet?"

"I'll return it to the cave later tonight when I begin to look over the evidence."

"Where are you headed now?

"I'm going to chase down a potential lead. Batman out."

I severe my connection with Oracle and shoot a grapnel line into the night.

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application
Screen name:
Harlekin
Character you would like to play: Animal Man (Buddy Baker)
Powers and origin: By tapping into the "Red", the morphogenetic field through which we are connected to all living things, Buddy Baker can call on the abilities of any animal in the universe, from the past or future, that he knows of. Usually, he will retain his normal appearance rather than copy an animal's specific attributes. For example, he is able to fly without actually growing a bird's wings or breathe underwater without a fish's gills.

Now, how did Buddy Baker get these fantastic powers? The short of it is that a spaceship blew up in his face and irradiated him. The long of it is that a group of aliens orchestrated this event and Buddy wasn't just irridiated: he was incinirated completely. The aliens put him back together and added his powers. Later, they would appear to Buddy in person, coming to enhance his powers. You see, Animal Man was originally limited to just copying the powers of those animals near him, but now no more.

While he became a superhero initially out of less than altruistic motives (fame, money), Buddy has evolved into a truly heroic, socially, environmentally and fictionally conscious character, much loved and respected by his peers and readers.

Affiliation: Reserve member of the JLA, full-time dad to the Baker family.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): This is it, the final season. That alone is reason enough to come back. But I've had ideas (some specific ones) for Animal Man for quite a while now and they fit in nicely with the idea that this is the last season of the current DC RPG.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: I do, it's noneofyourbusiness@mymail.com. No, seriously, PM me if you want to get into touch over MSN.

Sample post:
Quote:
Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around.


Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles. At the El Capitan Theatre, nearly a hundred animal rights activists stood gathered to protest against the premiere of Disney’s latest film, Beppo the Super-Monkey: The Quest for Peace, to be held that evening. The fourth in a highly successful series of kid’s movies, the film starred the titular primate battling such villainous forces as Gibs Gibbon and the Nuclear Ape.

“Let Beppo go, let Beppo go!” the protestors chanted at first. They demanded Beppo be granted the same kind of privileges given to the human actors in the films, but after some deliberation, the activists moved on to “Animals, not actors! Animals, not actors!”, before finally devolving into a group angrily shouting: “No more! No more!”

Inside the theatre, the film’s producers and their investors looked out with the window with increasingly furrowed brows. The group was growing larger and as a result more uncontrollable. With the premiere only two hours away, the men were unsure of what to do. Getting the police involved wasn’t an option. They could see the headlines now: “Beppo premiere gets bopped by cops.” Good luck selling tickets then.

“What can we do?” the movie’s director despaired. He was losing his nerve, but fortunately executive George Binder wasn’t (yet). Taking out his cell phone, he weighed it in his hands, moving it from one to the other, just as he weighed his options in his mind. Finally, he flipped the phone open and turned to the others.

“I might know somebody,” he announced.

An hour later, the protestors seemed to quiet down. The director rushed to the window (he had been sipping his by now cold coffee in the corner for the better part of the time) and gasped. He wasn’t looking out onto the boardwalk, but staring straight at the smiling face of Buddy Baker, better known to the world as Animal Man. The hero, dressed in his typical costume and jacket, motioned for the director to open the window. With his mouth still ajar, he complied.

“Thanks,” Animal Man said kindly as he entered the room. “It can get pretty cold up there and truthfully, this outfit has seen better days. Doesn’t hold temperature much anymore.”

He extended his hand.

“Animal Man.”

Screen Name: wiegeabo

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Sinestro

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences):
Sinestro is a former member of the Green Lantern Corps. That now uses a yellow ring of Qward for his own purposes. Like a Lantern ring, it can create constructs based on the will of the wearer. Unlike Lantern rings, the constructs are yellow, and the ring is charged by Lantern energy.

After living on Earth for some time, and learning how to be a hero from the Justice League, Sinestro was made a Green Lantern again. He immediately tried to join with the Parallax entity, his plan all along, in order to rewrite the universe and save it from itself. Stopped by Hal Jordan, but still considering himself the hero the universe needs, Sinestro now leads the Sinestro Corps.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): The Sinestro Corps

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): It's time to take Sinestro's story in a new direction. He's back now, no longer leading his Corps from behind the scenes. He's going to save the universe, no matter what it takes. And he's going to make sure the other Lantern Corps are up to the task, one way or another.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: MSN, AIM, Yahoo. All under wiegeabo.

If you know how to post pictures, please provide a picture of your character you wish to be used for the Character Roster (if you do not know how, or do not have a preference, please say so and a default picture shall be picked for you):


Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):
"Sam, put the spoons and forks on the table."

"K, mom!" the girl shouts happily. Samantha loves helping her mother. It makes her feel like a big girl. And her mother certainly appreciates it, although she still hopes her daughter doesn't grow up too fast.

Mary picks up a pair of plates, and turns to the stove...and promptly drops them on the floor as she grabs her mouth in shock.

"I said if I could find a way back to you...I would."

"Are...are you...real...?"

I take a step towards her, and she takes a step back away from me. I take another, and she tries to move back again, but the counter blocks her way. I step up next to her. She's shuddering visibly. I gently place me hand on her cheek and she inhales sharply.

"I'm real." I lean my head down and press my lips to hers. For an instant, she's too startled to react, but then she returns the kiss, and her body sags into mine as we hold each other tightly in our arms.

"Mommy. Did you break some-?" Samantha turns the corner and we look at her. The shock on her face makes her look exactly like her mother.

And then the shock turns into a huge smile.

"UNCLE SINESTRO!!!"

I squat down and extend my arms. "Hi, Samantha." She runs up and nearly tackles me, squeezing me in a hug. I give her a small kiss on the side of her head. " I missed you too."

"...Sam...Sam...I can't breathe..."

Mary crouches down beside me. "I think you deserve it."

I smile. "I'm not fighting it."

"Are you hungry?"

"Starving." I finally separate myself from Samantha long enough to stand. Then she wraps her arms around my leg and holds tight again. "Some things never change."

Mary smiles at the sight of us. "I love you."

"I love you too. Now, both of you sit down at the table." Hands extend from my ring, gathering plates and utensils, while a brush begins sweeping up the shattered dishes. "I'll set the table."

8 Months…

Eight months. That’s how long it’s been since this child has been growing inside me. Hard to believe, really; a baby – a human with my blood, my DNA. A child to teach – to raise and instruct through my experiences and my ideology. Of course, I’d have to figure out just what it is that I believe, first. A year ago, I was palling around with some of this world’s greatest adversaries; men and women who would take a life without thinking twice, without even breathing before dealing the fatal blow. But those times were different – those were times where I didn’t know the value of life.

As I hold my rounded stomach, I feel a kick – a powerful blow that sends a shockwave across the tissues of my body.
That was before I knew what it was like to hold a life, to carry a life … and to protect a life. But, despite all I’ve learned – regardless of the lesson’s life has taught me over these long, and enduring months, I still have that little doubt in my mind that picks at my thoughts and makes me wonder just what it is I believe. I laugh aloud as a smirk crawls across my face. I guess I’ll have to figure out what my philosophy is soon. Because a child is more than just another human being; it’s a legacy.

A loud rumbling on the table next to my bed pulls me from my thoughts. Turning my head, I see my Titans communicator moving across the surface as the “T” at the center of the circle flashes red. I grab the device and turn it on, snickering slightly as my thumb flips the switch. This is the first time I’ve even touched the communicator since Tim and I left the Titans – the first time since any of them has spoken to us directly. Strange I’d suddenly care about them now.

As I activate the communicator, Superboy’s voice suddenly comes through loud and clear. “Titans! Copperhead and Persuader have been spotted down town. Report immediately!”

The transmission goes dead, fading out into nothing. “Heh,” I grin, my teeth running across one another as I contemplate the intelligence behind my next decision. Forgoing reason, I rise to my feet and walk across the room to the closet. As I peer inside, I reach out and pull forth my old costume. “Well, well, well,” I start, staring at my reflection in the chainmail stitched into the shoulders. “I’ve been cooped up here all alone for a while. I think I’ve earned a little … playtime.” I grab the mask and tie it at the back of my head, allowing my silver hair to flow freely down my spine.

“Teen Titans … go.”

Here we go, cats and kittens, the big goodbye!



The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name: Andy C.

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Superman, aka Clark Kent and Kal-El (Arial, blue and bold)

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences)

Doomed World.

Desperate Scientists.

Last Survivor.

Kindly Parents.

Powers and Abilities Far Beyond Those of Mortal Men.

Truth.

Justice.

The American Way.

These are the elements that led Kal-El of Krypton to become Superman, the greatest hero the planet Earth has ever known. For years, the Man of Steel has battled threats not only to the city of Metropolis, but the entire world, and indeed, the universe itself. Even at the cost of his own life, he has been unbending in the face of evil, an exemplar of the strength of good men.

Superman's world has been rocked by tragedy, triumph, and revelation recently. His journey to the edge of the universe in an effort to bring back his cousin Kara forced him into a battle across infinite realities with the vengeful spirit of General Zod, before ultimately being brought back into his proper universe by an alliance between Mr. Mxyzptlk and a gathering of Jimmy Olsens from multiple universes to stop the final reckoning of the mad Apokoliptian god Darkseid.

After spending fifty thousand years at the heart of the sun and merging with the Source itself, Superman attained the power to re-create the universe itself, banishing Darkseid into the abyss outside of reality, then giving up that power after being confronted by Batman and Nightwing. However, even though he tried to leave the universe as he found it, Superman has unintentionally altered reality....for example, changing his wife Lois's DNA so she could become pregnant with his child.

As the baby develops and nears birth, he now has to think of the future. How will becoming a father affect his role as a hero and a leader of other heroes? How many more changes did he unknowingly make to the rest of the universe?

And how will the world react when they learn Superman now has an heir?

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable):

The Justice League of America
The 'Superman Family'

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?):

I've chosen Superman (again) because I still maintain that he is, far and away, the greatest hero character ever created. His unshakable morality allows for him to either show inspiring solidarity in the worst of times, or put him in tricky situations when he's forced to make a tough decision. And the sheer power and scope of his abilities allows for him to act on a scale that no other superhero can really do. He isn't so much a superhero as he is a mythological figure.

And since this is the final season, I plan on giving him a sendoff that's every bit as grand and sweeping as he deserves, a true 'epic' that lives up to the meaning of the term.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?:
AIM: StopAudacity716
MSN: theaudacity716@live.com

If you know how to post pictures, please provide a picture of your character you wish to be used for the Character Roster (if you do not know how, or do not have a preference, please say so and a default picture shall be picked for you):



Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):


If there's one thing I genuinely don't like about what I do, it's the aftermath, the cleaning up after an enormous crisis like the one that had just passed. It's not repairing all the structural damage that I mind; in fact, part of me has always enjoyed fixing things, big or small. It's seeing the people who were hurt that gets to me.

There's always an amount of triumph mixed in with the tragedy, but to me it's never enough. For every one person who found new courage in the face of ultimate horror, there are a hundred who will never walk again. For every tearful reunion with a missing loved one, there are thousands who learn that their parents or children or husbands or wives won't be coming back. Rebuilding and repairing a flattened city is easy compared to rebuilding a ruined life.

And every one of them, every man who can't dance with his wife because he's confined to a wheelchair now, every child who's been made an orphan, everyone whose homes have been obliterated, all have one thing on their mind when they see me:

"Why didn't you stop this?"

When you can do the things that I can do, when you're as fast and as powerful as I am, you can take every needless death or injury personally. Because even though I can be anywhere on the planet in a hundredth of the time it takes to blink, I can't be in multiple places at once. Which means that it becomes an awful matter of time management, judging whether going out of my way to save one person will endanger even more people somewhere else.

Before I left Earth, there was a protest group called KRYPTONITE, that claimed that people got maimed and killed during attacks like these because I simply didn't care enough to save everyone. The truth of the matter is that I care about everyone, but don't have the luxury of picking favorites. As horrible as it is, in situations like this, people get hurt because I have to choose not to save them.

This time, though, I could have actually done it. I could have erased everything that happened, and prevented all this needless tragedy from ever happening. I had conjoined with the Source, and could literally manipulate everything.

Everything, from the rise and fall of massive intergalactic nations, right down to the DNA structure of a single person in a single spot in time, can be altered if I want it.


Did I do the right thing by letting it all go? Did I even actually leave everything back the way it was? I know that was my conscious intention, but subconsciously, in the back of my head....did I change something without even knowing it?

I wish I had more time to think about these things, but right now I've got work to do.

There's a fire in Osaka that's threatening three or four residential blocks. I extinguish the brunt of it with a gust of Arctic breath, careful not to freeze the people still inside.

It takes a good ten minutes to quell the riots and looters in Moscow.

When rebuilding the slums in Rio de Janeiro, I make it a point to build homes and businesses back better than they were before. Those people have it hard enough as it is; the least I can do is make sure they've got a decent place to live.

In the weeks since the attacks, I've been everywhere there was damage, from the major capitals of the world to tiny little hamlets that aren't even a dot on most maps. Working overtime to set things right, I do everything I can to make up for the fact that I've been gone so long. It's been pretty exhausting, but getting to come home to Lois at the end of each day has been worth it.

Metropolis suffered hardly any damage at all during the invasion. According to sources, the invading aliens had been driven out by a complicated defense grid, shooting them down with energy beams or constructing enormous force-fields to keep them out. I'd been investigating the mysterious power fluctuations along the outskirts of the city, and found some kind of power relay devices, that gather energy from a central source and then distribute it wirelessly through a network that covers the entire city.

Only one man could have pulled off something like that without everyone noticing, and he's been believed dead since the attack of the Dark Alliance. No doubt Lex is actually hiding underground, in some shielded bunker where I can't see him with my X-ray vision or hear his pulse, planning some grand scheme against me. I'll be ready when he makes his move.

Everything, from the rise and fall of massive intergalactic nations, right down to the DNA structure of a single person in a single spot in time, can be altered if I want it.

I may not have used the power of the Source to create the world I wanted, but I've been working almost non-stop to undo the effects of Darkseid's attempt to do the same thing. From one country to the next, never staying in one place for long, not stopping for pictures or interviews, always moving....

...right down to the DNA structure of a single person in a single spot in time....

....And then I hear something that stops me dead in my tracks. Something that, in time, may change the course of the world forever.

Just a heads up. You may have noticed we've yet to approve any app so far. We're doing the 24 hour rule to start off the season. So, if nobody throws up a competing app for your character, then you'll be approved after 24 hours after you post your app.

Screen Name:
Catman_prb

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Nightwing, Arial bold dark blue

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Dick Grayson is the orphaned son of two circus acrobats, murdered by Tony Zucco. Trained from an early age by the Batman, Dick became the first Robin, a hero with a long legacy. After a fall out with the Dark Knight, mainly due to his fears of becoming his mentor, Grayson discarded the mantle of Robin and became Nightwing.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): Bat Family, Teen Titans

(i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I've walked Dick into that most serious of all superhero arcs - marriage. I feel I've got an obligation to continue that, and I also feel that Nightwing is one of those characters that you've got to play once. I'm following in some very big footsteps, and I kind of view this as a right of passage.

The sun was setting over Gotham Memorial Park, and setting over the two of us, laying on the blanket in the middle of it. I play with Babs' red hair absent-mindedly, enjoying the weight of her as she rests her head in my lap, reading her book. The wicker basket I prepared earlier lay open, revealing the leftovers of a veritable feast.

"I've had a wonderful day, Dick," Barbara says

"What can I say, I'm a master planner," I say picking up a strawberry from the hamper.

"Be serious for once!" she admonishes, sticking a bony elbow into my side.

"Hey I was being serious! My planning skills are unparralelled! Look, serious face and everything!" I protest loudly, offering her the strawberry. She smiled, and I feed it to her, wiping the strawberry juice off on the grass.

"Dick..."

"Yes?"

"What were you thinking? I mean...the whole Darkseid thing. Apocalypse now. What were you thinking?" Barbara asks, putting the book down and looking up into my eyes.

"I was...well part of me wasn't thinking. That was the part of me that was still fighting, on instinct. The part of me that was thinking? I was thinking about what a waste it all was...how I wouldn't have accomplished anything if the whole world had ended there. And I was thinking that I love you," I say, pausing for her response.

"I love you too," Babs says softly, taking my hand.

"And I was thinking that I've loved you for a long time now. Maybe always. That this last month or so that we've spent together, finally given in to all the things that I know that we both always felt, that it was the best time of my life. That we could be together, and stay together, without anything changing. That I want you to marry me. That I want us to build a life together, like we could've done years ago. And it's not like we have to stop doing what we do, it's more like we'd be doing it together. Because it means something, and I love you,"

"Wait, what?" Babs asks, her eyebrows shooting up into her hairline.

I take the tiny box out of the hamper and flip it open. Diamond sparkles.
My heart is pounding.

"Marry me,"

A beat.

"Yes,"

We kiss.

Africa.

"You know somethin' Jeva? When that old guy ponies up the cash for these pelts, I'm gonna get me the finest women this pile o' dirt country has to offer. Then I'm gonna party til I can't stand".

Jeva glanced up at the battered old Jeep where the other man was sitting. "Is that right Barton? Well how about you put out that smoke and help me skin these damn things? You know, actually earn some of that dough?"

Barton grinned and took a long drag of his cigarette and blew it into the air above his head. "Hey, I made the kill, you gots to skin 'em. That's the deal".

Jeva sighed and wiped the blood and gore from his hands on his khaki shorts. "All right" he sighed, "But you're doing the ones at the next site. Right?"

Barton laughed heartily and shook his head. "If you say so, buddy".

"You're not going to make it to the next site. Or any other".


Barton and Jeva jumped at the new voice. A near naked man leapt from a nearby tree, a glinting blade in his hand. "I've disabled your damn traps. This ends here" he growled.

Barton reached into the back of the Jeep for his rifle but the man sprang forward, cat-like and landed on the hood of the vehicle. Leaping over the windshield he grabbed Bartons hand as it rested on the weapon and drove the knife through his throat.

The savage leapt from the Jeep and turned his attention to Jeva. The poacher leapt backwards, creating distance and brandishing the knife he'd used to skin the dead lion at his feet. "S-Stay back man or I'll kill you! I've got skills man. I know how to use thing!" The bloodstained knife glinted in the harsh sunlight.

The savage man paced forward, rage in his eyes. "She had a litter. Three of 'em. And you orphaned them for what? How much is she worth? Was the cash worth risking your life for?"

Jeva continued backing away, panic urging him to run as he stared at the wild man closing in upon him. "I-it was just one stupid cat, man. There's plenty more out there. Please, I'm just doing my job?"

"You call murder a job?"

"Please! Don't kill me! I won't do it again!"

The savage man stopped in his tracks and sheathed his blade. "Oh, I'm not going to kill you". He glanced up at Jeva and nodded towards the savannah just behind the poacher, "They are".

Jeva spun to see a huge male, his golden mane highlighted in the sun, white teeth against black gums and eyes as black as death. He was flanked by four females, each one snarling and spitting. Jeva cried out. His screams ended as huge jaws crushed his neck and head.

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name: Batman

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Red Robin (Timothy Drake)

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Under the tutilege of Batman and his allies, Tim was allowed to hone his already keen skills as a detective to become a formidable crimefighter as the third Robin. With access to unlimited financial resources and state of the art technology, Tim's new guise as Red Robin is host to an arsenal able to rival his mentor's, adding to his continued growth as a detective, master of disguise and dialect, gymnast, motorcyclist, and hand to hand martial artist. Despite these skills, he has no superhuman powers, relying instead on the very skills that made Batman, Robin, and the rest of the protectors of Gotham City what they were.

Discovering the identities of the original Batman and Robin, a 14 year old Drake reached out to his idol following the tragic death of Jason Todd, the second Robin. At first shunned, Tim soon proved himself worthy of the Robin mantle and became the new Boy Wonder. Fighting alongside Young Justice, and eventually the Teen Titans - with whom he became great friends, Robin fought the good fight and provided years of heroic service while trying to balance a social life in living with his father, Jack Drake. It wasn't until Jack was murdered by the vengeful Captain Boomerang that Tim's youthful outlook was forever changed. Driven to the point of near insanity by the loss, he briefly became The Red Hood before Batman could rekindle his heroism and become Robin once again. But falling in love with Rose Wilson, Ravager, only complicated his life further when they began an affair that would slowly distance Tim from The Titans. Following the death of Batman, Tim briefly became a stand-in Dark Knight before realizing that he couldn't cut it, instead gravitating towards an ex-lover in Stephanie Brown, The Spoiler. After learning that Rose was pregnant, Tim prepared for his new life as a father by abandoning his adolescent role of Robin and looking towards his future as a man, looking for the answers to what that means under the new guise of The Red Robin.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): (Formerly) Young Justice, The Teen Titans, The Dynamic Duo, The Batman Family

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): My goal this season is to really bring Tim from being the lifelong teenager from the comics and really bringing home the fact that he's become a man, just as much of one as Dick became once he, too, dropped the Robin persona. Expecting a child isn't enough to show that, however, so I'll be showing Tim's progresssions in the other aspects of his life aswell - from working for a living to provide for Rose and the baby, to tackling his own solo cases in Gotham City as Red Robin. He's out to prove that he doesn't need Batman's tutilege to make something of himself, though not nearly in the same rebellious manner as Dick.

As for why I chose him, it was for two reasons. One, I've read the Red Robin ongoing from day one and it's one of my favorites thus far, and two, I like what Cats did with the character and to end Tim's storyline for the RPG's final season seemed like a task worth taking on.

"I'm going to be a dad."

It's not really something that you can grasp the full reality of until you stop yourself and actually say it. The idea of it, especially at my age, is almost too absurd. But it's happening, and there's no turning back now. Rose is eight months along, and I only have weeks - if even that - to enjoy a life without real commitment and responsibility. I feel like I should be overjoyed, I mean... I'm going to have a little boy of my own. To teach and love and watch grow for the rest of my life, until he becomes a man and ventures out onto his own. I don't doubt that he'll be something, however he turns out. He's got the blood of an amazing woman running through his veins, and he'll have some of the best people around to protect him. And yeah, even with everything that's happened, I am happy about that. Terry's going to be the happiest part of my entire life.

I just wish I wasn't thinking this while avoiding a pair of M-16 automatics grazing every car that the cycle passes. Bullets whiz past my head as I kneel myself down to avoid them, the speedometer just now hitting 90 MPH. A car full of Russian underlings for the latest international boss to hit the Gotham weapons' market caught me doing surveillance and they've been chasing me up and down mainstreet all night. I've got no hope of shaking these idiots before they manage to catch up and skin me alive. I guess I should consider myself lucky.

Because I'm not looking to lose them.

After a count of three, I leap off of the Ducati and perform a double backflip at a speed that would probably turn me into sidewalk dressing without practice. The car that was tailing me tries to come to a stop before I land, but it's too late. The soles of my books kick into gear and magnetically graft me to the car's roof, causing them to vocally panic and start firing wildly into the air. I recognize their accents - natives of Czech, possibly from the Prague rackets? Doesn't matter, I don't have time to make observation anymore. These scum are gonna wish they hadn't stepped over international borders by the time I'm done.

Reaching into my belt, I pull out a miniaturized sonic defibrillator and smack it on the hood. Handy little gadget in the case of any faulty vehicle troubles, but put one on a car that's working perfectly fine and you'll end up with some pretty nasty results. As the men below me are just now finding out, by the sound of their motor failing them. The car skids into a circle as I hold on tight, bashing against the streetline parking at top speeds that they can't even control. The driver feverishly tries to slam the brakes, but to no avail. I finally punch through the windshield and toss a grenade into the back seat, just to get their attention. They take the risk and jump out of the car.

Good boys, I tell myself, activating the detonation key and gliding off with my paracape. The car becomes an instant fireball and rockets into the sky, toppling over into a flaming pile of rubble in the distance. Not work that Batman might necessarily approve of, mind you, but better the car than the freeway traffic.

Now. Let's get to know eachother.

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character):
Damian Al-Ghul Wayne, a.k.a. Robin (V) / Courier New Black

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences) If you copy/paste this information from another website, link back to it, or it is considered plagiarism and is not allowed.:
Damian Wayne is a normal human with no supernatural powers or abilities (though arguably the ability to call both Supergirl and Donna Troy a harlot to their faces should count for something). Damian has trained in the martial arts from infancy and is in peak physical condition for a 10 year old child, being a proficient combatant able to hold his own against the likes of Timothy Drake. Damian's training has a focus on quickly disabling or killing his opponent, as efforts to subdue a larger opponent often prove far more difficult given Damian's lack of size/weight. Damian possesses a talent for mimicking voices, as well as a high degree of intelligence - particularly toward engineering systems.

In origin, Damian is the product of Talia Al-Ghul raping Bruce Wayne (date rape drugs FTW) and then developing the zygote in an artificial womb while genetically modifying ("purifying") the result of their union. Damian was raised by the League of Assassins, the pawn of two separate power plays by his mother and maternal grandfather. Talia would use Damian as a successor to the Demon's Head, while Ra's Al-Ghul wishes to use Damian's body as a physical resurrection medium.

In WoH continuity, Bruce Wayne rescued Damian from the League of Assassins when he learned of the boy's existence (vice having Talia dump the boy on him for reasons only Grant Morrison could explain). During an attack on the Batcave by the Yellow Lanterns, Damian killed a member of the Sinestro Corps and immediately found himself on his father's bad side. Running away from the Wayne mansion, Damian was discovered/beat down/kidnapped by Jason Todd, with whom the boy has since developed an odd rapport - seeing Todd as both an unwanted brother and also as a reflection of himself or how he images that Bruce sees him.

During the Blackest Night, Damian found himself in a Gotham City with no protector and waged a one-boy war against drug cartels and Black Lanterns - including a Black Lantern Azrael (Jean-Paul Valley). Finding an unconscious Jason Todd, Damian decided that the pair should hide away in one of the Batman's hidden bunkers in Gotham City.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable):
The Batman Family, League of Assassins (formerly)

As I picked up Damian last season, elevating him from NPC status, I'll be riding his story to the conclusion of World of Heroes and wrapping up the storyline with Batman and Jason Todd, along with Byrd and Trusty obviously. As for why I chose this character, he's the son of Batman and he's got a mouth on him that rivals Marvel's Deadpool... who could pass up that combination?

Gotham City.

If his father was looking for hell on Earth, then he couldn't have picked a more beautiful location. On the fire escape of a rundown high rise, a young boy ate a dinner of stale cereal and looked out over the city at night while, inside, the child's mother reclined in a daze with the syringe still embedded in her vein. In the alley below members of a gang proved their worth by beating an enfeebled and sick homeless man. Not so far away that he couldn't have not known about the plight of the invalid, a police officer was receiving his weekly pay off from a pimp and negotiating for a test of some his prostitutes services. Sex, drugs, violence, and corruption. A single street in Gotham contained all of these. And Damian... didn't care.

Was he supposed to? The ways of the Batman were shrouded by a morality that ran counter to the ethics that he had been raised with. Justice was ubiquitous, its meaning something different for mother than it was to father. That difference was the defining value of his parents and the enigma between which he had been born. Damian understood his mother's brand of justice or, at least, justice as it was dispensed by the League of Assassins. It was the modern incarnation of that divine right of kings: the ageless creed of might makes right.

Fight crime? He was too royal for this bull.

So why, then, was it the singular preoccupation upon which father was fixated like an addict? It did not appear to be a question with any easy answers. In fact, it seemed a question which only spawned more questions. Damian much preferred the simplicity of something as straightforward as a sword. A sword was easy to understand. It was steel forged and folded with a singular purpose that was made clear by the sharp edge that was its most prominent feature. It was an instrument of death, nothing more and nothing less. A sword weighed neither morality nor ethics, indiscriminate of its victims, secure only in the knowledge that only those with the strength to prevail in combat would emerge victorious. The most incompetent of sword wielders were still dangerously capable of maiming their victims horribly. Skilled combatants could kill with seemingly effortless ability and incredible speed, separating flesh with the same detached demeanor a master chef demonstrated when carving meat from the bone. And the sensation was no less delicious.

The sky was on fire. Around them, and across the globe, there appeared to be a global problem of supernatural proportions. Bursts of green, yellow, red, blue, and violet flashed and burned in brilliant arrays of color. But the problems of life on the street could hardly be bothered to straighten out and live peacefully while watching the fireworks. So it was that, while Batman and the other n'er-do-wells occupied themselves with the more dynamic problem of Rainbow Wars, the petty crime would continue. Murder over the mugging of a wallet with less than twenty bucks in it. The drug deals. The gang wars. The initiation rites of hoodlums who proved their strength through overwhelming force of numbers so they'd never have to rely on their own ineptitude.

The child on the fire escape was tapped on the top of the head by some unseen force, turning his eyes upward in vain before the sound of something landing on the metal grating snapped his head around. A candy bar lay there beside him. Reaching for the chocolate, the child missed the shadow dropping down from the rooftop above and into the alley below.

No, Damian didn't care. But there was no harm in going through the motions if doing such would garner greater understanding of his father or, perhaps, even father's approval. He doubted very much his mother would approve, but if anything that was merely further motivation for him. Even were that not the case, the feeling of power he got from demonstrating his martial superiority over larger opponents was a momentary high that made this exercise almost worth the effort on his part.

The four warriors of Gotham's depraved were sent staggered and sprawling to the filth of the alleyway floor as the shadow lashed out with silent and surprising fury. He landed in a three-point crouch, his form and features masked by the cloak and cowl. Rising to his full height, the small figure stood between the invalid and the assailants. Hints of red and yellow peeked through the front of the cloak, the pommel of a sword looming over one shoulder as unseen eyes veiled behind the hood took in each of the gang members in turn. Depressingly not a single worthy challenge was to be found in any of them. They reeked of cheap alcohol and fear. "tt. Why don't you pick on someone half your size?" the cloaked figure asked mockingly. A thin smile was visible through the darkness overshadowing the face. He was a child and he was toying with them, that much was obvious.

The revelation of the interloper's youth alleviated the gang's fear and replaced it with an over confidence that washed over each of the four in a relief that only fueled their aggressive tendencies. And Damian wouldn't have had it any other way. Unworthy prey was unworthy prey, but there was nothing worse than an opponent paralyzed by fear. That just served to make them uninteresting. This game was much better when both sides were into the action.

"Little ****." Words, brazenly uttered with a contempt that Damian can recognize easily. The closest of the group lunges forward with a deplorably predictable punch. Instead the teenage gangster runs straight into Damian's strike, aimed at soft tissue beneath the sternum in a technique designed not to inflict pain but rather to disrupt the rhythm of the thoracic diaphram. It had a nice element of surprise to it. A moment of shock that was expressed by the look of confusion on the face of the gangster in a silent second of pause before the air rushed out of his lungs. At the same time it was a sleight of hand trick. The gangster's attention on the right hand that had struck him, and his own inability to catch his breath, the teen was oblivious to what was happening to his fist before it was to late. With the muscle spasm, his fingers hand unclenched themselves. Damian seizing hold of the middle finger and hyper-extending it back as he used it as a lever to twist and painfully stretch the muscles of that arm. With a negligible application of force, the wrist snapped with a delightfully aubible pop.

And all of it had occured inside of a few seconds.

The squeal of pain was a message, one that caused the gangsters to take a step back away from the boy. As the one before him dropped to his knees in shock and pain, Damian was aware of another that was manuevering beyond his peripheral vision... with a hand reaching into a pocket. That hand sailed free of its owner a moment later, the small revolver still clutched in the grip. This scream of pain had the benefit of a full lung of air, blood dripping onto the street from the sword the child held.

Father had objected to killing. Dismemberment wasn't killing however. The man was perfectly capable of living without that hand. And it would be a powerful reminder of his crimes, a life sentence that the gangster... or his friends... wouldn't forget. What better criminal deterent?

The remaining two start to flee, their passage blocked by the speed with which the small demon moves through the shadows of the alleyway. A flick of his wrist sends the blood from the blade splattering across the pair. That gets their attention. But no more so than the glint of moonlight reflecting off the edge of the sword. "Get them to a hospital." That was all Damian said. It was all that left remained to be said. With the sentence executed, there was no need for further intervention here. Justice had been served.

Sheathing the blade, Damian adusted the hood of his cloak and turned back to the darkness from which he'd come. He'd taken perhaps three or four steps before he heard the homeless man speak.

"Thank you."

The words stop the child in his tracks, the cape furling about his slight form as he turns to glare back at the invalid in answer. Pathetic. Waiting on a Batman or a Superman to come to the rescue. "**** you," the boy replied coldly. And then vanished.

His father is actually also his great ancestor and a powerful Atlantean wizard. His mother was the Queen of Atlantis at that time, but her mate and lover was unable to make her pregnant. Persuaded by the great Atlan so that she could give her King the heir he always wanted, they made love and she became pregnant. When it was discovered that the Queen was having a baby, the King grew curious because he knew he couldn't have been the father. Also ironically, while she was pregnant the Queen would find herself followed every so constantly by the sea animals for some bizarre reason; little did she know was because her baby was special and had a bond with them. After the young baby was born (Aquaman), the King saw that he had blonde hair, and immediately ordered that he be left to die on Mercy's Reef for he wore the Curse of Kordax because of his hair color. The baby survived however and grew to be the King of the Sevens Seas, Aquaman.

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name:
trustyside-kick

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character):
The Red Hood, Jason Todd

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences):
Trained martial artist, Access to high-caliber weaponry, Advanced student in detection.

Jason Todd was a trouble Gothamite who one night was caught by Batman trying to steal one of the wheels off of the Batmobile. Batman took him under his wing to try to offer the young boy a better life, thinking he could turn things around for him much like he did with his previous ward Dick Grayson. But Jason was arrogant and hotheaded and often times did not fully obey Batman which in the end would lead to his death at the hands of the Joker on the detonator of a ticking time bomb.

Year later, Jason resurfaced in the DCU through unknown means. After executing actions one could call pyschotic, in the end all it did was make Jason's life worse and worse. Currently, and for the past about year and a half, Jason Todd has been the resident of a Psychiatric Hospital. Darkseid pays him a visit, revealing it was him who brought him back to life Seasons ago in the RPG to have him complete a mission for him: to kill Bruce Wayne.

Having his mind and body restored to its prime once again by Darkseid, Jason set out to take Damian Wayne under his wing to turn him against his father to further torture Bruce. Bruce has found out about Jason's "bonding" with his son and has challenged Jason that if he does not give Damian back he will answer to him.

This Season will tell us how the tale ends.

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name: Catman_prb

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Slade Wilson/ Deathstroke Century Gothic, orange bold

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Enhanced physical attributes, advanced healing factor, highly skilled in martial arts and strategy, Slade Wilson is the ultimate mercenary. His powers were gained from a partially successful government attempt at a supersoldier serum, although he quickly went rogue with his abilities. His frequent encounters with the Teen Titans have left him a bitter and formidable foe. He went a step too far with his involvement with the Dark Alliance; Roy Harper strangled him with a bow string after he blinded Lian Harper in one eye.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): Dark Alliance

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I loved the hideous things that Byrd did with Slade during season VI, and it seems appropriate that one of WoH biggest monsters returns for it's final season. Slade's already going to be involved in an arc that will wrap things up well for the character.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: PM me for it.

If you know how to post pictures, please provide a picture of your character you wish to be used for the Character Roster (if you do not know how, or do not have a preference, please say so and a default picture shall be picked for you):


Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):
I was dead. Ultimately, I knew it would happen one day. The line of work I'm in, specifically the type of thing I come across on a day to day basis...well it was bound to happen, healing ability or no healing ability. It can't be said that I didn't go out with a bang; I helped take out a couple of Titans, always a pleasure. And I half blinded Harper's little girl. Hard to raise a little arrowette with no depth perception, am I right? Mostly I do my work for the money, or the principle but the Joker's rag-tag bunch of misfits? That was all pleasure.

And in the end, I did exactly what I wanted to. I killed some. Hurt some worse than that. I broke the Titans. For all I know, they're still running around somewhere playing teenage hero. But I know that the Titans then, the real Titans, not the bit players...they'll never be the same again. And Hell, isn't that what it's all about? Doing it for the sport. And I died doing it. Although I got better again. Got to love that healing factor...it takes some time, but boy is it effective. So now I'm back from the grave. And I feel a little bit like getting revenge on those that put me there.

I mean, it just feels right, doesn't it? It feels like something's coming. Like it's all about to end. And I should be there for that. Waiting. Planning. Doing what I do best. I hope they've missed me.

"I'm back,"

Slade was also used at the tail end of season VII. He was one of the Batmen and was brought to life by Darkseid to do evil **** and etc. I think you already know that.

Character you would like to play: Animal Man (Buddy Baker)
Powers and origin: By tapping into the "Red", the morphogenetic field through which we are connected to all living things, Buddy Baker can call on the abilities of any animal in the universe, from the past or future, that he knows of. Usually, he will retain his normal appearance rather than copy an animal's specific attributes. For example, he is able to fly without actually growing a bird's wings or breathe underwater without a fish's gills.

Now, how did Buddy Baker get these fantastic powers? The short of it is that a spaceship blew up in his face and irradiated him. The long of it is that a group of aliens orchestrated this event and Buddy wasn't just irridiated: he was incinirated completely. The aliens put him back together and added his powers. Later, they would appear to Buddy in person, coming to enhance his powers. You see, Animal Man was originally limited to just copying the powers of those animals near him, but now no more.

While he became a superhero initially out of less than altruistic motives (fame, money), Buddy has evolved into a truly heroic, socially, environmentally and fictionally conscious character, much loved and respected by his peers and readers.

Affiliation: Reserve member of the JLA, full-time dad to the Baker family.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): This is it, the final season. That alone is reason enough to come back. But I've had ideas (some specific ones) for Animal Man for quite a while now and they fit in nicely with the idea that this is the last season of the current DC RPG.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: I do, it's noneofyourbusiness@mymail.com. No, seriously, PM me if you want to get into touch over MSN.

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Sinestro

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences):
Sinestro is a former member of the Green Lantern Corps. That now uses a yellow ring of Qward for his own purposes. Like a Lantern ring, it can create constructs based on the will of the wearer. Unlike Lantern rings, the constructs are yellow, and the ring is charged by Lantern energy.

After living on Earth for some time, and learning how to be a hero from the Justice League, Sinestro was made a Green Lantern again. He immediately tried to join with the Parallax entity, his plan all along, in order to rewrite the universe and save it from itself. Stopped by Hal Jordan, but still considering himself the hero the universe needs, Sinestro now leads the Sinestro Corps.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): The Sinestro Corps

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): It's time to take Sinestro's story in a new direction. He's back now, no longer leading his Corps from behind the scenes. He's going to save the universe, no matter what it takes. And he's going to make sure the other Lantern Corps are up to the task, one way or another.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: MSN, AIM, Yahoo. All under wiegeabo.

"Sam, put the spoons and forks on the table."

"K, mom!" the girl shouts happily. Samantha loves helping her mother. It makes her feel like a big girl. And her mother certainly appreciates it, although she still hopes her daughter doesn't grow up too fast.

Mary picks up a pair of plates, and turns to the stove...and promptly drops them on the floor as she grabs her mouth in shock.

"I said if I could find a way back to you...I would."

"Are...are you...real...?"

I take a step towards her, and she takes a step back away from me. I take another, and she tries to move back again, but the counter blocks her way. I step up next to her. She's shuddering visibly. I gently place me hand on her cheek and she inhales sharply.

"I'm real." I lean my head down and press my lips to hers. For an instant, she's too startled to react, but then she returns the kiss, and her body sags into mine as we hold each other tightly in our arms.

"Mommy. Did you break some-?" Samantha turns the corner and we look at her. The shock on her face makes her look exactly like her mother.

And then the shock turns into a huge smile.

"UNCLE SINESTRO!!!"

I squat down and extend my arms. "Hi, Samantha." She runs up and nearly tackles me, squeezing me in a hug. I give her a small kiss on the side of her head. " I missed you too."

"...Sam...Sam...I can't breathe..."

Mary crouches down beside me. "I think you deserve it."

I smile. "I'm not fighting it."

"Are you hungry?"

"Starving." I finally separate myself from Samantha long enough to stand. Then she wraps her arms around my leg and holds tight again. "Some things never change."

Mary smiles at the sight of us. "I love you."

"I love you too. Now, both of you sit down at the table." Hands extend from my ring, gathering plates and utensils, while a brush begins sweeping up the shattered dishes. "I'll set the table."

8 Months…

Eight months. That’s how long it’s been since this child has been growing inside me. Hard to believe, really; a baby – a human with my blood, my DNA. A child to teach – to raise and instruct through my experiences and my ideology. Of course, I’d have to figure out just what it is that I believe, first. A year ago, I was palling around with some of this world’s greatest adversaries; men and women who would take a life without thinking twice, without even breathing before dealing the fatal blow. But those times were different – those were times where I didn’t know the value of life.

As I hold my rounded stomach, I feel a kick – a powerful blow that sends a shockwave across the tissues of my body.
That was before I knew what it was like to hold a life, to carry a life … and to protect a life. But, despite all I’ve learned – regardless of the lesson’s life has taught me over these long, and enduring months, I still have that little doubt in my mind that picks at my thoughts and makes me wonder just what it is I believe. I laugh aloud as a smirk crawls across my face. I guess I’ll have to figure out what my philosophy is soon. Because a child is more than just another human being; it’s a legacy.

A loud rumbling on the table next to my bed pulls me from my thoughts. Turning my head, I see my Titans communicator moving across the surface as the “T” at the center of the circle flashes red. I grab the device and turn it on, snickering slightly as my thumb flips the switch. This is the first time I’ve even touched the communicator since Tim and I left the Titans – the first time since any of them has spoken to us directly. Strange I’d suddenly care about them now.

As I activate the communicator, Superboy’s voice suddenly comes through loud and clear. “Titans! Copperhead and Persuader have been spotted down town. Report immediately!”

The transmission goes dead, fading out into nothing. “Heh,” I grin, my teeth running across one another as I contemplate the intelligence behind my next decision. Forgoing reason, I rise to my feet and walk across the room to the closet. As I peer inside, I reach out and pull forth my old costume. “Well, well, well,” I start, staring at my reflection in the chainmail stitched into the shoulders. “I’ve been cooped up here all alone for a while. I think I’ve earned a little … playtime.” I grab the mask and tie it at the back of my head, allowing my silver hair to flow freely down my spine.

“Teen Titans … go.”
Animal Man, Sinestro, and Ravager are APPROVED!

On top of his genius mind, Batman uses his resources of Wayne Enterprises to have the best technology available.

Bruce Wayne was just a child when he watched his parents murder. That night, as he laid in the blood of Thomas and Martha Wayne, he made a solemn vow that he would seek justice.

Training his body and his mind, Bruce became the crime fighter know as Batman. Many years after taking up his quest, his greatest enemy, the Joker, killed him battle. Being resurrected by Talia Al Ghul, Bruce was rescued by the unlikely team of Joker and Alfred Pennyworth. Soon after returning to Gotham, Bruce rescued his son, Damian, from the clutches of the League of Assassins and participated in fighting Darkseid and his forces.

On the return home, Bruce discovered Damian had ran away from home, meeting and befriending former Robin Jason Todd. Now, Bruce ventures out into the night to look for his son and the former ally who has claimed him as his own.

Crime Alley

It's the one location in Gotham that lives up to its name. Crime Alley has witnessed its fair share of tragedy, almost all of it related to me. This street was the death bed of my parents, as well as the birth place of Batman. This is the same location the Joker killed me, and it was here that I recovered from Talia's brainwashing. So much death and birth.

It's another death that brings me to the street again.



"The Spectre is dead."

"Come again."

"The Spectre is dead," I say into the microphone.

"You mean the Angel of Vegence Spectre?"

I walk around the body, inspecting the crime scene from as many angles as possible. A single gunshot to the robed figure's forehead.

"It's either him or someone appearing to be him."

"I don't think it's the Spectre. Isn't he an angel or something?"

"That's what the current speculation is."

I tap a button on my cowl, and the lenses over my eyes shine UV light.

"Are you plugged into the visual?"

"Yes, and it's recording. I'm catching audio as well."

"From the ultraviolent light, it appears the victim died from the single gunshot wound to the head. Strangely, there appears to be no blood from the wound to the head. Evidence at the mouth of the alley indicates there may have possibly been a struggle. A set of footprints I see do in fact match those of the victim. Several other footprints are around the victim's prints. That could indicate the struggle was many assailants against one....there appears to be a bullet lodged in the alley wall. The bullet's metal jacket appears to be made of some unorthodox metal. Bullet has been secured inside my utility belt pouch and will be processed for evidence later in the cave. That seems to be all the physical evidence present. End recording."

The UV light disappears and my vision is returned back to normal.

"Once you have the audio and visual ready, forward a copy of the report to the computer in the cave."

"Done. What about the bullet?"

"I'll return it to the cave later tonight when I begin to look over the evidence."

"Where are you headed now?

"I'm going to chase down a potential lead. Batman out."

I severe my connection with Oracle and shoot a grapnel line into the night.

Approved dammit
