On the set, Gordon stands as pictures of lab rooms and destruction show behind him. His show is one of the most popular, especially with the current news on aliens and the controversial debate on whether they are friends or enemies. He stands center stage, looking out at his curious audience.
"So there we have it ladies and gentlemen: proof that there still are alien races out there that intend to do us harm." The image behind Gordon changes into another: it depicted Starfire lifting a bus. "Sure there are those who we have met that say they want to help us, but are they telling the truth?
"Earth needs to protect itself from the horrors that may unleash upon use from the stars," Gordan continues, "without having to rely on the unreliable members of the Justice League who have failed to capture these alien perpetrators. You need not worry, my friends. Fortunately, today's atta

The lab was a normally pristine environment, but at the moment it looked nothing less than ‘lived in’. A long row of computers atop the stainless steel table were all quiet, their monitors dark except for the one in the middle. Around it sat several ceramic coffee cups, a few disposable ones from the closest java hut, and more crumpled candy bar wrappers than either of the two men who had eaten them cared to count or admit. One of them was leaning against the desk with his head propped up on his hand, studying the shadows on the desk. The other had pushed his chair away from the computer and was leaning back, his legs sprawled out in front of him and his arms crossed over his chest. His shirt sleeves, along with the ones of his sterile white coat were rolled up past his elbows. A quiet, but annoying, buzz drew the attention of both men, making them looks towards the illum

“Just another night,” Dick reassured himself as he grabbed his black costume from the foot of the bed, slipping the skin-tight leather suit on. He stared at the bright blue insignia on the front, not even sure who “Dick Grayson” was anymore. Ever since Joker had attacked Gotham, nothing had been the same. He’d drowned himself in his work, merging himself with his Nightwing persona until they became one and the same.
Dick reached for his cell phone, typing in a familiar string of digits that he’d easily memorized over time. The phone rang six times, each one a dagger in his chest, before it released a clicking noise. He sat up hopefully, thinking that the phone had been answered, but was disappointed to find out he’d gone to voicemail.
“Hey, this is Barbara,” the voice on the other side spoke. “Sorry I couldn’t get to the phone.

Late afternoon sunlight pleasantly warmed the park. The summer weather had been good to the plant life making everything grow and flourish. The grass was a healthy shade of dark green and soft to the touch, carefully manicured around the concrete paths crisscrossing the area. Tall trees dotted the lawns creating ample shade for the park’s occupants to lounge in. A few couples walked along the paths, some hand in hand, others with their arms around one another. Children chased each other across the grass, caught up in games of epic battles and thrills. A small playground was teeming with them, each one the ruler of their own castle. Parents stood nearby or sat on benches, keeping watch over their precious charges. Everything in the park seemed new and full of life, even the white stone statue that stood at its center. It depicted a young man standing proudly, a lightning

M’Gann stood at the door of Wally’s room, her hands clasped in front of her. She stared down at herself, finding a strange comfort in the familiarity of her paler skin. The usual green hue seemed to unnerve some of the humans around the base, so she’d taken to walking around this way instead. Though the color of her skin had changed, the scar marring one side of her face was still there. Her black and red uniform morphed into rather plain looking military fatigues, the same as the ones she’d given Wally the night before. With the thought at the forefront of her mind, M’Gann turned and looked at the door, only able to imagine what Wally’s night had been like.
After everything he’d learned, she doubted he would have been able to sleep. Knowing the speedster like she did, it was far more likely his mind had kept him up most of the night, agoni

Wally opened his eyes slowly, trying to adjust to the light. It wasn’t bright in the room, but it was a drastic change compared to the darkness behind his eyes. A steady beeping sounded in his ears as he turned his head, making out blurred shapes around him. He was in a different room, this one looking much cozier than his cell had. As he say up his muscles clenched in protest, but he managed. Cringing a little he focused his eyes on the shape closest to him. Blinking rapidly to clear his vision, he realized it was M’Gann leaning on the side of the bed he was lying in. She was asleep, slumped over onto the bed from the chair she was sitting in. The sight brought a smile to his face as he looked at her. It was strange to see a person he remembered as a girl looking so much older than before.
That’s going to take some getting used to. Wally thought to himself

At first he was confused, but then he realized that his castle was gone, and he was lying at the bottom of the crater where it used to be. The bomb had annihilated everything. The castle, and the flux. It was all gone.
His ears were ringing, and he knew he was hurt, but he couldn't quite register the pain yet. Looking down, he saw that splotches of blood were slowly spreading across the right side of his chest. Whatever had injured him – which was most likely the shrapnel from the explosion – must have hit his lung, because he was having trouble breathing. He also glanced over at his right arm and saw that the sleeve of his lab coat had burnt away, and his arm between his elbow and shoulder was covered in blood, the flesh torn to bits to the point where he could see the bones beneath the muscle.
As if in a trance, he looked around again. It took a minute for his vision to focus, but
Young Justice: Revolution Ep3- Devastated Part 2Each step was a battle as Wally walked looking for any sign of the Team. As far as he could see there was nothing but snow, ice, and wind leaving him in a blinding white wasteland. On instinct he reached for the radio that was always securely nestled in the curve of his ear, letting out a defeated breath when he found it wasn’t there. As the air left his lungs, it was replaced by the now familiar feeling of liquid fire burned through veins. The sensation sent him back to his knees where shards of ice dug sharply into his skin. Then it was gone, just a suddenly at it had appeared. With shaky breath pulling in gulps of air, Wally got back to his feet. One more glance around confirmed his fear.

It didn't take long for the sense of overwhelming fear and impending doom to start creeping up on him. The stormy weather didn't help the mood either.
He felt his heart racing, and after a bit longer, his vision started to blur as his mind was overrun with panic. He scratched at his arm so much that it hurt, but that itch along with the pain was a good anchor.

They were nowhere near their destination, and Nano knew that the only way they could make it there in time was if they flew or teleported.

Kid Flash is running on a treadmill, with monitors set to his bare chest. Machines are beeping at his side. Miss Martian hovers nearby with her hands clasped, wearing a worried expression. She turns her towards Michael who is monitoring the machine’s displays. He looks carefully at Wally’s heart rate and muscle activity before turning a dial. The readings increase as the speedometer passes 200 mph.
“How are feeling Wally?” Michael asks without taking his eyes of the screen.
Wally laughs and replies, “I’m only in first gear.” The pains have stopped, and he is now getting a feel for the extra speed that was hiding within. It surged with the newly given opportunity.
“Well, make certain you will stay in that gear, thank you. I don’t want to make another running machine for you after the first three.” He pauses and glances over all of the screen, a

The pair stared up at the ring of guns surrounding them, Sportsmaster staring back with his arms crossed over his chest.

Wally came to a standstill in the middle of the city. He’d run up and down streets and alleys, finding himself wishing he could find someone, anyone. The entire city was devoid of life. The scene was the same as it had been in San Francisco, but seemed to get worse the farther he went. There were overturned cars, broken and disfigured. Buildings were collapsing in on themselves littering the ground with massive chunks of concrete and stone. Every breath he took was clogged with dust. The asphalt of the streets was torn apart as if an earthquake had dislodged it from its rightful place. As Wally turned in a circle staring at the destruction around him, he noticed that almost everything was scorched. The paint was burned from the cars leaving them all black and charred. Long streaks of soot adorned the few walls that still stood. When he looked down, light drifts of ash were swirling ar

Paula Crocks sleeps peacefully, unaware of the threat that looms beside her. At the end of the bed, the same man that killed so many shadows stands and aims his gun at the woman. As he cocks back the hammer of the gun, the supposedly sleeping woman surprises him, throwing high the bed sheets and obscuring the man’s vision. For an instant a bullet flares, but in his blindness the shot misses its mark. Paula shifts her mass to the side of the bed, reaching for the bedside drawer. She pulls out a miniature crossbow and turns to aim, but her hands are forced back into the bed’s headboard. Her shot goes wide, and her hands are still pinned by the man’s one hand; his other holds a gun aimed at Paula’s forehead.

A rat crawls along the line of the dark tunnel. The silence disturbed by a sharp sound, sending the rodent fleeing into the shadows as a large black Humvee carriage and another Humvee drive by.
The source of light inside the dark room are three red bulbs, evenly spread along the ceiling of the carriage and creating an ominous glow. The lights shine onto the transported people: twenty heavily armed men in black-ops gear, silently waiting for orders. Michael, dressed similarly, straightens himself and looks out to his men.
“Right, listen up! We have two new additions to the squads today: the Martian Manhunter and the Flash.” Michael does not turn back to see Wally’s eyes go wide. “These two will be pivotal in the success of today's operation, so we have to cut the traditional welcome rituals for the moment.”

Boy was about nineteen. A young man really, but his face made him look younger. Girl was younger, maybe fifteen, sixteen. Peter Bowen thought as he kept his distance considering the situation, studying the several people involved.
City of wade was under Arenian occupation for over three centuries now, and Arenian trackers seeking out mages to be drafted to their military force was hardly an unusual event. Most people who were learned in spellcasting kept their skills hidden, and their weapons were creatively concealed.
Still give it enough time and any trickery will stand revealed. Trackers were by now very skilled in noticing anything with engraved spellcasting spiral. A ring, a stick, the smallest of things. They knew what they were looking for.

Lalna hadn't spoken since they set off, and Nano couldn't blame him. After what Lalnable had said, he was probably having an unpleasant time to say the least.
Nano was also keeping a close eye on him to see how the poison was affecting him. They still didn't know what exactly it did, but she had her suspicions. She noticed how he would occasionally shoot a nervous glance over his shoulder or look around, flinching a bit as if expecting something to be there. She noticed he had also started nervously scratching at his left arm. However, she had noticed him doing that before he got poisoned, so that could be his nervousness showing through. It was also possible he was looking over his shoulder for Lalnable or Xephos, since both of them seemed like enemies at the moment.
The whole situation was so confusing it made her nauseous.

Three strips of metal stretch horizontally over her face, while other bands wrap her arms. She wears her dark black hair in a high ponytail, and carries a long rope with a razor disc on the end.

But, they had been left behind as soon as she left the building, making it mandatory that they get something less...extraterrestrial.
