WONDER WOMAN vs RED PANZERWith things quiet in the city, Elissa often looked to other areas where her presence could be more useful. Gotham was a clear choice, but with Batman there she was nervous about even approaching that city for fear of another confrontation with him. Little was known about him and he did not seem to have any special powers or abilities yet still he put the fear of the Gods into her, and in that respect she found herself envious. She still had not met Superman face to face and often thought about making the six hour drive to Metropolis to do just that, though that always remained on the back burner.WONDER WOMAN vs RED PANZER3 years ago in Drama More Like This

Arrows rained down by the hundreds. It did not take long for Artemis to rally her Amazon sisters and take a full frontal assault against their attackers. By the hundreds, fully armored men stormed the shores of Themyscira. They wore battle armor similar to the Amazons and seemed to have the same kind of warrior's fire the Themysciran women had as well.
"Amazons!" Artemis shouted over the noise of rushing war. "Attack!" she commanded with her sword pointed towards the enemy. She pulled on the golden reins of the Pegasus and flew directly towards the heart of the enemy's swarm. With a great swipe of her blade Artemis took the heads of four of the male warriors clear off.
A wave of angry women followed her down her path with their swords raised. By the hundreds the Amazons stormed into battle. But this was not an epic battle like David versus Goliath. This was a war of the century! While one man would fall on the battle grounds, he took with him two Amazons.

The perfect utopia was available for all to enjoy, but now, Themyscira was under attack on the very shores that were once closed to the feet of man.
"Themyscira will not fall while I am King!" Tristan promised. While his powers were almost nonexistent he was still a deadly warrior who should not be trifled with.
He was surrounded by his Amazon council, they were his inner circle. These were not only the fiercest of the Amazons, but also thd smartest and most experienced in combat. His three daughters were among them, the Princesses of Themyscira.
"Then we shall fight!" Artemis declared. Artemis had become Tristan's personal Champion when he chose to give up his powers. She fought for him and was willing to die in his honor. She raised her sword into the air. Every Amazon in the room joined her. They were al

The last one in the world
Gets mangled in a fight
Crashed into tiny pieces

Ducky goes bye bye
Big bad monkey kills the Ducky

No more breaking toys
Guess they'd settle for Nutcracker

But J'onn's all doom and gloom
They hole him up in Kara's happy
Pukey girly room.

Oh how wonderful is sulking

In a dodgy alien bar

Disturbing and bizarre

He doesn't turn around. He's not sure he can let himself. He's not sure he would resist the urge to touch her, if he looked.
His breath dies in his lungs for a one moment, when he feels her hot lips on his nape.
He tries to regain his composure. Tries to speak. Tries to warn her.
She slowly makes her way around him. Her lips move across his bare shoulder, her fingers travel down his back, passing a soft fracture of few bandages.
When she is in front of him, he's not sure he's still breathing.
He can feel smoothness of her hair when she kisses his collar bone. The tips of her fingers examine every muscle of his chest and stomach. They caress every scar beneath them.
Her mouth finds its way along his jaw. Every breath she takes is like the fire on his skin.
He doesn't move even an inch.
Some voice, painful and hard voice, reverberating in the back of his mind, tells him that this is wrong. That he should push her aw

Pandora was actually created as a punishment for the sins of the Titian, Prometheus. Prometheus had tricked and robbed the gods of Olympus twice and given the sto

REBOOTS WELCOMED?: THE NEW FIFTY-TWO
Written by Diane N. Tran
Yesterday, on Wednesday, August 31st, DC Comics scrapped its entire publishing line for September in order to reinvigorate itself with a reboot or a relaunch, as they're calling it. This historic event consists of the release fifty-two first issues in a span of one month, starring rejuvenated versions of its iconic comic book heroes, such as Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, etc, and a storyline that had been previously rebooted twenty-five years earlier in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTH. Fan reaction has been mix, from massive issues like the paraplegic Oracle walking out of her wheelchair to the tiniest issues like Wonder Woman having retractable pants.
While I personally disapprove, strongly and pessimistically, of this reboot for countless reasons that are my own, the NEW FIFTY-TWO has started with a bang, whether good or bad and is, t

there is a spectre blotting out the stars.
The torch of the Sun is hidden
by the jealous Earth
who tells the Moon,
"I love you in shadow
I love your pocked and dusty face."
There is a death waiting for us all
there will come a time when we are only shadow -
when we are nothing more than a wavering spectre.
Will you dance at the crossroads?
Will your shadow cross her feet?
Will you smile into her dusty face?
There, the torch held high.
There, dark mother leads the way.
Follow the braying of hounds,
feel the breeze of beating wings.
She has shown you the path;
Will you follow?
We say, Hecate! Beloved Mother,
dark as the shadow moon!
Hecate, face powdered with the dust of crossroads!
Hecate, old mother,
torch bearer, keeper of keys!
Hecate, our love we give!
Hecate, our devotion we give!
Hecate, our offerings we give!

Distraught by her mother's wishes for her not to be with Captain Trevor, she returned to the Hospital to see Lieutenant Prince who had come around. Although sedated, she was quite lucid. They had told her where she is and that she had not much time left. Her injuries were beyond anything they could do, and her life lies in the hands of the gods. Diana came to her a bit melancholy yet was passionate about the young woman's plight.

Most of the structures on Themyscira were ancient Greek style in construction, as their culture was largely ancient Greek in makeup, and built of marble or limestone for the most part. A training center near the middle of the island was one of the largest. Like most structures, it had a walled open courtyard all the way around it, four entrances into the structure itself, and large marble columns that held up the stone roof. The inside of the perimeter wall was adorned with gardens with a track of clean sand right inside of the gardens that measured over three miles around the building, and inside of these were the training fields for this facility, and they were all in heavy use this day. Four obstacle courses, one on each side of the huge, three level structure, were of varying degrees of difficulty for different kinds of training and were named for Greek Gods.

Oh God, my head was in the process of murdering me. I felt each pulse of blood coursing into my head, and each throb was the equivalent of someone kicking me. Hard.
I groaned in pain and rolled over, the sheets made noise as I turned.
My eyes flew open.
"Sheets?" I thought, "Who put sheets on me?"
A loud gasp sounded through the room, and suddenly a shadow passed over my eyes. I was still in a state of mild confusion, and I had not at all expected someone to respond to me.
"Babe!" the shadow exclaimed, "You're alright! Thank Jesus; you scared the shit out of me! If you ever pull something like that again I'll kill you myself!"
That voice. I know that voice . . . but . . .
I turned over and opened my eyes. The light blinded me at first, but thankfully, the entity's shadow quickly passed over my face to help me see.

Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes.
