“This is Cat Grant reporting for GBS News from Metropolis where the city is under attack from the super villain known as Parasite.” Cat turned away from the camera gesturing to the scene behind her. A red car was lying on its top, smoke pouring from the under carriage. Water was leaking onto the street from a broke fire hydrant, fallen street lights criss-crossing the roads and sidewalks. “With Superman nowhere in sight, he seems to be unstoppable, sapping the powers and energy of everyone who gets close enough.” As the camera zoomed in on the field of drained officers Cat stepped back out of the frame. “Are you getting all of this Jimmy?” She whispered in a demanding
Ring-PopArtemis trudged into the apartment she shared with Wally. It’s been months since she’s seen it, but as the saying goes, there’s no place like home. With the Invasion over she was finally able to return to the apartment. But unfortunately the one reason she went straight there, wasn’t there. Wally was still in his last class of the day for another forty-five minutes.Ring-Pop2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Deciding to make the most of the time, Artemis started cleaning up a bit. The pizza boxes hidden under the couch with assorted other food packaging didn’t come as much of a surprise. Considering Wally’s cleaning skills and how much he eats, it makes perfect sense.
Once the cleaning was done there was still another twenty minutes left until the ginger arrived home.
With that in mind she went off to the bathroom to take a shower. There were still a number of unidentified bits of sea-junk on the Tigress uniform she hadn’t bothered to take off before rushing over to the apartment. Hones

Artemis jolted from her sleep as Wally's voice whispered around her. Frantically, she looked around, a flash of red and yellow assaulted her eyes, but she dismissed it quickly. Her mind was playing tricks on her. Wally was dead. Had been for months. Get your shit together, Crock. He's never coming back.
Shivers ran over her skin as she blinked back the tears. Closing her eyes against the images of him in his stealth mode costume as he swung her up in his arms and kissed her for the first time. Sobbing quietly to herself, Artemis mumbled, “No kidding...” before she drifted back into a Wally filled sleep.

As the sun came up, Artemis dragged her lazy ass out of bed. She had to go meet the rest of the team. She still had a role to play, maybe not as Artemis anymore, but as Tigress. It was still an important role anyway. Nightwing would be pissed if she showed up late again.

“Ready or not, here we go.” Artemis pushed passed the acrobat and entered the room she hadn't dared entered since losing Wally.
As she stood in the middle of the room, amidst Wally and who he was as a person, as a hero, as a lover, as a friend, tears threatened her gray eyes. She could almost feel her boyfriend in the room, wrapping his arms around her body and rocking her against his chest. Unable to keep them away anymore, the traitorous tears rolled down her pale cheeks.
Dick was worried about her, but she cut him off. She wanted to enjoy this moment. To soak up Wally and his being. “I love you, too,” she whispered into the empty air as she closed her eyes against the onslaught of uncontrollable pain. Her body shook from the ferocity of the grief she was letting out. When she opened her eyes, she saw him again. Like she had this morning and both times this

“This is what I’ve been talking about all along! The Justice League is no better than the Reach!” The red haired man raised his arms dramatically with each exclamation. He gestured to the screen behind him. A blond girl was flying away from a scene of destruction. “This proves it! Aliens are running rampant. With that symbol it’s more than obvious the girl belongs to Superman. The last thing Earth needs is another alien. The Justice League think they can pull the curtains on the world, but not on G.

Finally we have someone with sense in the United Nations. Lex Luthor!

It was the first day of school in August and fifteen-year-old Mari Grayson woke up, got out of bed, showered, dressed, and went downstairs for breakfast. She wore a Murakami High School girl's uniform. Mari kissed her father on the cheek as he read the newspaper and hugged her mother as she sat down to eat breakfast. Once she finished breakfast, her father drove her to school.
Fourteen-year-old Kyle and twelve-year-old Vanessa Logan woke up to the sound and smell of breakfast being made.

The jungle was surprisingly quiet, the numerous birds making few noises. One let out a shrill call to the others drawing their attention to the lizard climbing along the branch where they perched. As they turned to study the creature, sizing up the meal, it morphed into a small monkey, still the same brilliant shade of green. Startled, the birds took flight calling out warning to the other birds. The monkey let out a chattering laugh before pushing aside a clump of leaves to look beyond the branches before it. There, looking out of place among the greenery, were two dome-like structures and long strips of bare land. Men laden with guns of varying caliber patrolled along a chain link fence surrounding the area.

“Shhh. Just let it happen.” For some odd reason, Sam decided that he wanted to lay on your lap. After a few minutes of pushing, and laughing from Sam, you just rolled your eyes and gave up. It ended with his head on your thighs and his eyes closed. You rested your arms across his chest and read from there. As time went on, you brought the book closer to your face, and subconsciously started playing with Sam’s hair. Only when you heard him humm with pleasure did you stop and look at what you were doing.
“Why did you stop?” He looked at you with big puppy eyes that made the blood flow to your cheeks. Not going to lie, it was nice seeing him happy and content like that.

Thirty-one year old Richard or "Dick" Grayson was driving his five-year-old daughter to preschool in his Volvo XC60 when a tire went flat. He growled angrily and muttered curse words as he checked the tire.
"Are we going to be late, Daddy?" asked his young daughter from the back seat. His daughter had golden tan skin, black hair, and sapphire blue eyes.
Richard smiled at his daughter from the car window, hiding his frustration. "No, Mari, we won't be late," replied Richard. As he pulled out his cell phone to call a tow-truck, he saw an auto body shop nearby. He took his daughter out of her car seat and went inside. There was a tall, African American man with a clean shaven head and grey eyes at the front desk.
"Can I help you?" asked the man behind the desk.

For the next few days the six teens continued to go to school. Once they would finish their homework, Nightwing would train them in combat and teamwork.

You can win one fight by yourself, and the next one, and maybe the next one after. But people who fight alone, they fail, and they fall, eventually. What made the Titans strong was having teammates to pick you up again after."

The piercing wail still reached your ears, despite your efforts, and you rubbed your forehead on your husband's arm to wake him up. "Sam?"

The excitable girl tapped her chin thoughtfully with her pen, notepad in hand. Her face was riddled with small bouts of acne with messy, thin bangs hanging across her forehead.
