His anger and rage threatened to never cease.
In the prison of Hell, looking up at the sky,
His only soft feelings of hope began to die.
His soul rotted for years.
The inhumanity dried up any remaining tears.
A baby's cries erupted one night.
The sound was foreign and inspiring, as was the sight.
The broken man, his heart so charred,
Watched the baby grow up, his expression hard.
Hatred manifested for the mother, who brought the girl into this hell.
Didn't she know how many prisoners had tried to escape and fell?
How cruel was that mother, to bring that girl straight into death.
She'd never feel warmth and happiness on her breath.
Especially not after her mother was taken and killed.
In the commotion of the screaming struggle, the broken man's arms were filled.
He held the girl close and dashed away,
"I will protect you." She heard him say.
The guards weren't concerned with the abandoned five year old.
They had done what they'd been told.
Spectacular Spiderman reviewSpidey has been through a lot over the years, hasn't he? Selling his marriage to Mephisto, fighting a ridiculous number of clones of himself, star in three films, two good the other... less so, and a reboot, as well as a total of 5 animated series. First one was a straight riff on the old spiderman shorts by stan-lee, complete with cheesy dialogue, stilted animation and even more cheesy music (it was the 60's), the Second was the awful 90's version where everyone looked like they were made out of sides of beef (IT MIGHT WORK FOR THE X-MEN, BUT DOESN'T WORK HERE!!!!), with a spin-off taking place on an alternative earth with furries and a scientist with a god complex. There was that attempted reboot in the 2000's that was swiftly forgotten with Crap-tasuck CGI characters, and finally we get this new edition, The Spectacular Spiderman.Spectacular Spiderman review5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

They dictate our lives,
They do what they want
Yet they control our minds.
The things that they do
Tell all helpless souls
That our lives are not ours
But theirs to control.
Some fight for freedom,
But they are soon killed,
To them, we are puppets,
Just slaves of their will.

I knew what might eventually come, an order programmed into us that would force us to kill what we had come to hold so dear in these wars. I had always thought it was a failsafe, a back up plan, but rumors were telling me otherwise.
She was infallible, though, and I'd take that blast for her in a heartbeat if the time ever came.
Behind This MaskEvery morningBehind This Mask5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Of every day
I get up early
Wanting to play
Rather than doing
What my soul has asked
Instead I shape up
And put on my mask
I must play a role
I must play a part
I cannot let them
See into my heart
They talk of their drugs
They speak of their booze
I play along
But I've got too much to lose
The people that my time
Is spent with the most
Do not realize
That I am but a hoax
The truth that I am
Still wants to hide
For he is afraid
That they'd wish him to die
When my day is done
When I lay in my bed
The drown out the voices
Of those in my head
They tell me to be
Something I'm not
But I don't want to live
Like a robot
Today I am done
Playing this part
Now I can free
This child at heart

She may have been able to keep denying it awhile longer, might have squeezed out a couple more seconds of hope before the end finally came. She could have pretended, she was good at that.
She could have done it, if it weren't for him.
At the sight of Buzz's outstretched hand, the truth hit Jessie like a blow to the head. She was a toy, a doll, a child's companion. She was made to live an alternate reality---a thousand of them--- to become a part of whatever whimsical fantasy a young mind could create. That's what toys were for. When you lived that kind of a life long enough, denial became sewn into every fiber of your being, it was who you were. You didn't think about it, it just.....was.
It was their entire problem, Jessie saw that now.
Everyone. Every toy caught up in this blasted mess refused to face the truth when they had the chance, and now it was facing them, right there in all its firey blaze. They had no choice but to face it, now.

"Is she dead, Sir?"
"Yes, but I'll make sure it's finished. The rest of you head back and finish mopping up the droids. I've got this."
"Yes, Sir," his men answer in unison and move off to help the rest of their brothers finish the battle.
She hears him make his way down the slope she'd fallen down when he'd shot her, and slowly rolls over to see him crouch over her. She slowly,painfully tries to scoot back from him as he reaches out for her.
"Why..." she croaks, tears beginning to fall from her eyes. "Why,Rex?"
"Orders," he replies simply. His head tilts to the side for a moment,then he answers the transmission. "Yes, she's dead. Putting one final round in her to make sure." He pulls his blaster out and fires into the rocks a few feet from her.

Your still as cold as ice?
You've never said one kind word
to anyone who doesn't repeat what you say, like a mockingbird.
Somtimes I don't know if your a person.
You won't stay this way forever: you'll only worsen.
Yet...why do I crave so much to be accepted by you?
Even though I hate everything you do.
All I ever wanted was to belong.
But you said I was wrong.
You told me that, so I tried so hard not to be weird or strange, too smart, or a "whore".
But I couldn't take being such a bore.
So you attacked me and nearly beat me to death.
Not with fists, but with words so hurtful, you sucked up my pain like a drug, meth.
I couldn't get over it one bit.
I still have the scars to prove it.
There are so many time that you made me cry.
These may be my final words because of you...

Concerned I say in a welcoming voice "why don't you lay here with me.
Common there's enough room."
"But friends don't do this.. do they" she replied shakily.
She loosens her body a little,
then I realise she doesn't let people get this close.
I am about to move away to give her some room when she kicks my leg with her foot.
Removing her head from between her unfolding legs, she addresses me with her eyes.
"I want to do something but I don't think its right.. If something was to happen.. you wouldn't hate me.. would you?"
Confound from her sentence I reply consolingly.
"Of course not"
With a tear in her eye she rolls over, enveloping me with her arms.
Her lips caress mine in an explosion of emotion.
I pause dumbfounded for a moment before slowly embracing her...

Yes, the ponytail has "graced" Slade in Young Justice... BUT! we'll get to that momentarily.
Many people seem to only be watching the trailer initially showing Slade, and not analyzing it. I find myself repeating the explanation, and since my journal entry about this sacrilige was merely about ranting on it, I thought it would save me and many others time if I made an offcial piece of literature on the subject.
*(no insult to those I've explained it to, I've got no beef with you or nuthin, it's just starting to get old...)
Call this a "pre-review" of what we can know about Slade as he is shown only in the available trailer for the show "Young Justice".

Numb hands, blood, crimson red, flowing to the mere at my feet.
My voice cold as ice, passing you of as just another unwanted acquaintance.

I think because of the time alterations involved with this deal, there should be a massive crack in the time-space continum that effects Spiderman's universe that causes drastic alterations to people's and places' looks that keeps flipping back and forth between the past, present, and future. Spidey recognizes this and thinks that there's a villain involved, possibly Mephisto, and he goes to fight him. However, he encountersan unknown individual who calls herself Renaissance. Spidey asks her if this time-space thing is all her fault, and she reveals to him that HE is the cause of the chaos because of his deal with Mephisto. When Aunt May got shot in Civil War, Mephisto cast him under a spell, an illusion if you will, that put Spidey in a situation that would force him to make a deal with him and alter reality. It is Mephisto's influence that is causing everyone to act so out of character so he can fulfill his Xanatos Gambit. Renaissance explains that Peter and MJ's marriage had a spiri

I fell in love with you.
Completely by accident.
Now I cant get you out of my head.
IT was the way you smiled.
The way it reached your eyes
The way you laugh, the way you cared.
But it wasn't to be.
I did what my mind told me not to.
I ended up saying I loved you.
Against better judgment and all odds, I told you the truth.
And then like a knife cutting through my heart , you said you loved me, just not the way I did.
MY heart broke and I felt and unnerving pain fill my chest.
I held my head high and didn't blink.
My mind cloudy, at that moment i couldn't think.
All I knew was that I had to walk away without hurting you.
So I hid my emotions and lied.
"Oh don't worry I'm fine"
Couldn't tell you that you were my sunshine.
I turned around and walked away.
My heart shattered and my voice broke.
That night i cried myself to sleep....
