The Adventures of Super BeetleTed Kord was experimenting with gene splicing in his lab when he accidentally created a rift in time and space, causing various universes to momentarily collide! After the explosion, Ted picked himself up, glad to be alive. Though he felt... strange, different. He ran to the bathroom to look in the mirror and saw - well, it was himself, but combined with Superman.
He could tell because at that moment he hit his bathroom mirror with heat vision, the reflected beams knocking the tiles off the ceiling. He blinked as he took the image in the mirror in. He had gained several pounds of muscle, and he felt that his entire body structure felt thicker. His stomach, which he had been trying to turn into a six pack with that new fitness gizmo Booster was promoting ("Five easy payments of $99.95, but for you, Ted, just $99. Just promise me not to throw out the booklets and you will read the diet instructions") was an eight pack. Ted grinned and dashed back into the lab, and lifted up an incredibly
Grayson: Hey Old FriendDick is sitting in a bar somewhere in Manhattan, he's nursing a glass of a clear liquid. He is wearing a combination of the clothes he was wearing when shot and the hospital gown. He is brooding.Grayson: Hey Old Friend1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
Dick: *narrating* So, let me try to think of the upside. No one thinks I'm Nightwing anymore thanks to what Bruce did, I'm out of SPYRAL now that we shut it down, and I'm alive. Bad news is now I'm unemployed, and Bruce's little trick won't exactly fool everyone, plus they'll still think I'm hiding something. I'm broke, SPYRAL froze the accounts I was using; and I'm not crawling back to Gotham for a handout. For someone who wanted to catch up, Joseph was a pretty hands off doctor; saw him maybe twice since I woke up from my coma. Checked myself out of the hospital today...and by that I mean I sneaked out the window. What am I going to do...?
A large man with close cropped hair enters the bar. He sees Dick and approaches.
Brighton: Took me long enough to track you down.
Dick: Hello, Brighton. *

EMT: OUT OF THE WAY!
They burst into the critical care unit.
Head Nurse: What is it?
EMT: John Doe, was shot and thrown off a building in Times Square.
Head Nurse: Looks like he was tortured beforehand, look at these injuries....
We see the patient, it's Dick Grayson. He's covered in cuts, there is a bullet wound on his left shoulder, one of his eyes is swelled shut. He has oxygen being delivered into his lungs, blood being fed through an IV, etc.
Junior Nurse: He looks familiar...did I see him on the news?
Head Nurse: Don't care prep him for surgery.
We have a close up Dick's face
EMT: *off panel* Who's on duty...
Head Nurse: *off panel* Let's see...Doctor K...

Timeline: After the attack by Jason Todd on Joseph Kane, say a couple months or so
Barbara Gordon enters Wayne Manor; Alfred approaches. Outside, we can see snow falling. Barbara is bundled up.
Alfred: Good morning, Miss Gordon.
Barbara: Morning, Alfred.
Alfred: Let me get you out of that jacket and get you warmed up. I assume you're here to help with Master Joseph's rehab.
Barbara: Yeah, heard he finally got over that flu.
Alfred: Indeed. As he is still recovering from his injuries, his immune system was not adequately strong enough to fend off disease. Let's just say we had a few moments where it was touch-and-go.
Barbara: Well, let's get him back on track.
Alfred: He might not be in the right mental state.
Barbara: Don't tell me he's having a mood swing....
Alfred: More like feeling "blue". You'll see why when you get up there.
Barbara nods and heads upstairs. She enters Joseph's room. Her eyes suddenly become sad
We see Joseph, still in his P
