This quest takes place in the DC Universe with characteristics mainly pulled from the animated TV series and films. You are Battery, a teen recently brought in to HIVE Academy by Brother Blood after having seen your powers in action. Here you will learn how to successfully become a full-fledged villain, but you also hope to find some answers for your robotic origin. Though everything ahead of you is uncertain, you currently seek only the best for yourself.Rules -15 Minute voting period after each post-Some actions (typically combat choices against non-generic enemies and certain social situations) will require 3 D100 rolls, using the best of the 3 rolls for said action.-Critical successes/failures are 100/1Link to previous thread >>1646343Archivehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=DC+Quest+MachPunch
You stand up after her, nodding.“Sure. Who knows, maybe I'll learn something.”Blackfire seems pleased with your decision as she turns to face the exit of the cafeteria. She waits for you to get next to her before she begins walking, leading you to the classroom.You both walk a short distance down the halls of HIVE, with Blackfire telling you the names of a few students along the way and what their powers are. You figure it's good to know this stuff if you're going to be taking a class about spying.You both enter the class, and for the most part it seems fairly ordinary. It has the layout of a typical university room, just with fewer seats and some high-tech desk equipment. Blackfire leads you over to one of the middle seating areas, giving you a decent view of whoever is going to be teaching this class.You look around the room and see two familiar faces, those being Jinx and Kydd. Kydd notices you and gives you a small wave. You're about to give him one back when someone addresses you.“Oi, prick. Yer in my seat.” You turn only to see your dorm neighbor staring daggers down at you. She reeks of smoke and looks just as unpleasant as before.“Ohh, sorry Lady Black.” Blackfire chimes in, leaning back in her seat and giving who you now know as Lady Black a wicked little grin.“Sorry, but my friend Battery wanted to sit in class with me today. It's alright I allow him to use your chair right? He's new after all...”Lady Black just grits her teeth angrily. She looks like she's about to slug Blackfire across the face, but she resists the urge and stomps off while muttering an insult to the Tamaranian.“Fuckin' space slag!”Blackfire chuckles darkly, then gives you a comforting touch on the arm.“Don't mind her. Being Manchester Black's illegitimate daughter comes with a lot of baggage, I'm sure.” She informs you in a mocking manner.Before you can ask who the hell Manchester Black is, you hear the voice of the class' instructor beckon the room.“Good evening,” A voice comes from the front of the room. The voice is female, and you pick up on a French accent as she speaks.“Welcome back to another lesson in Espionage and Sabotage. I see some new faces, so allow me to introduce myself.”The woman steps in front of her desk, her slender frame standing proud while adorned in a red tube top and pants, as well as a pair of shiny black boots and long gloves.“I am Madame Rouge.”[To be continued in the next post]
>>1666385The room becomes dead silent as she speaks. You don't know anything about Madame Rouge, but she gives a presence that demands fear and respect.“If you are in this class, it is because you wish to bring someone to their knees before you strike them down. You want to lurk in the shadows of your target and learn their every move. You want to extract information and exploit others by any means necessary And if you should fail...”She gives the room full of villainous teenagers a cold glare, pausing as she seems to stare into everyone's souls.“... You are willing to pay the ultimate price.”She places her latex arms behind her back, sauntering over to her desk as she continues to speak.“I will teach you all how to properly deceive not just these so called superheroes, but the entire world.”She sits, examining some papers before speaking again.“Battery.” Her stern voice calls out, surprising you.It's the first time you've ever set foot in this room and she's already singling you out.“Are you lost?” Her icy tone inquires as she raises an eyebrow at you.“I believe someone with your talents would've seen Master Katarou first. This class requires a more... Delicate approach. Why did you decide to come here?”You swallow. You weren't ready to be put on the spot by the ice-queen and her sexy accent so soon. How do you respond?A: “Blackfire invited me.”B: “I dunno, I just wanted to learn stuff.”C: “If you know who I am, you know what I got under these good looks. I was made for stealth.”D: “I'm not going to get anywhere just hitting things. Might as well learn to hit things quietly.”E: “You're right, I'm totally lost. I'll see myself out!”F: Just stay silent. What if she's testing you on spilling info?
>>1666388>D: “I'm not going to get anywhere just hitting things. Might as well learn to hit things quietly.”Are people forgetting modern security requires electricity? I mean it's probably a good thing they're not putting it together but real hard to trip an alarm if it's got no juice.
>>1666388D: “I'm not going to get anywhere just hitting things. Might as well learn to hit things quietly.”
>>1666388>F: Just stay silent. What if she's testing you on spilling info?
>>1666388>"How do you even know my name? I've been here for like one day."
>>1666388>D: “I'm not going to get anywhere just hitting things. Might as well learn to hit things quietly.”

>almost missed the madame rouge waifu questGlad I showed up
>>1666388>D: “I'm not going to get anywhere just hitting things. Might as well learn to hit things quietly.” Despite being tested so suddenly, you manage to find an answer in your mind. It may not be exactly true, but you think she'll at least find it satisfactory.“I'm not going to get anywhere just hitting things. Might as well learn to hit things quietly.” She continues to look at you in silence for a moment, as if searching for the tiniest flaw in your response.“Very well.” She finally utters, her eyes going back to her desk and bringing up a monitor from within the furnishing.“I respect your will to branch out, but our lesson plan will not cover 'hitting things quietly.'”As she says this, the room dims and an image is projected on the large, blank board behind her.The projection appears to be Titan's Tower, or rather some map of the structure. The blueprint seems to outline every nook and cranny of the building, from the team's rooms to other utility based areas such as a computer lab and a medical bay.“Instead, we will continue our lesson on planning an infiltration. But before we begin...”Madame Rouge stands, turning to look up at Jinx at the other end of the room.“I would like to thank Jinx for bringing these interior schematics of the Titan's home. I'm glad you were able to do something useful with your time away as a rat.”Rouge's words contained a fair amount of venom, and they seem to poison Jinx as her face shows traces of sorrow.“Thank you, Madame Rouge.” Jinx quietly returns as she closes her eyes, trying to keep her composure.You can't help but feel curious as to why the cat-eyed girl, who acted so smug when you first met her, now seems troubled by something.Part of you thinks you push the thought out of your mind and pay attention to the lesson, but you can't help but wonder about Jinx.A: Try and ask Blackfire if she knows any gossip about Jinx, but try to keep your voice low during the lesson.B: Pay attention. Madame Rouge was able to call you out from the minute you got in here, she will find catch you disrupting class with your chatter.
>>1666513>B: Pay attention. Madame Rouge was able to call you out from the minute you got in here, she will find catch you disrupting class with your chatter.we can get gossip later. The lesson is now.
>>1666513>B: Pay attention. Madame Rouge was able to call you out from the minute you got in here, she will find catch you disrupting class with your chatter.Don't wanna interrupt best girl while she's giving important advice
>>1666513>B: Pay attention. Madame Rouge was able to call you out from the minute you got in here, she will find catch you disrupting class with your chatter.We can ask her later ourselves.
>>1666513>B: Pay attention. Madame Rouge was able to call you out from the minute you got in here, she will find catch you disrupting class with your chatter.
>>1666513>B: Pay attention. Madame Rouge was able to call you out from the minute you got in here, she will find catch you disrupting class with your chatter.Bring this up if she asks for ideas.We should make a battery suit that makes it look like it's the source of our power, get 'defeated' and 'captured' by the Titans, and when were in their jail cells, then break out and drain all the power from the tower, leaving it vulnerable to attack.
I AM SUPER LATELETS ROCK
>>1666513>B: Pay attention. Madame Rouge was able to call you out from the minute you got in here, she will find catch you disrupting class with your chatter.You quickly shake your head. You can try to ask about Jinx later, right now you have to focus.“So, onto the lesson” Madame Rouge begins. You watch as her arm stretches out towards the projection, tracing a finger across the building's layout.“We were discussing the best entry points for access the tower, and we discovered security vulnerabilities on the roof and... Here.”Her finger taps a location at the rocky base of the tower.“Their hidden grotto used for aquatic missions. However...”She retracts her arm, facing the class again.“One cannot simply reach these points and break in. Not only is the structure filled with state of the art security, but you would also be facing the Titans alone.”Madame Rouge's face starts to show some traces of anger as she continues to lecture the class.“The brats are not to be underestimated. Your headmaster may not appreciate what I'm about to say, but it only took one of them to foil his plans and destroy everything he had built before he remade this academy. Only a complete idiot would be foolish enough to challenge them on their own at your level.”Her sternness persist as she begins to pace around her desk, the air thick with her resentment towards the young heroes.“But that raises the question: what is the best way to assault Titan's Tower? How would one be able to infiltrate their base without risk of failure? Battery,”Her eyes are on you again, that critical gaze looking into you once more.“If you were tasked with this, what would you suggest?”A: “Just ambush them. You can't expect me to believe they're ALWAYS on guard.”B: “Jinx was able to get close and come out with all this info, right? I could probably try an befriend them too and lead an attack from the inside.”C: “Maybe we could try to set up a diversion? Start some chaos in the city and get the Titans to leave the tower while everyone else moves in.”D: “You don't. Watch to see who leaves the tower, and then single them out. You can take their home once they're all gone.”
>>1666584>D: “You don't. Watch to see who leaves the tower, and then single them out. You can take their home once they're all gone.”This actually worked in Judas Contract.
>>1666584>C: “Maybe we could try to set up a diversion? Start some chaos in the city and get the Titans to leave the tower while everyone else moves in.”
>>1666584>"Ambush a suitable one outside the tower, then disguise yourself as them and walk right in."
>>1666584>D: “You don't. Watch to see who leaves the tower, and then single them out. You can take their home once they're all gone.”
>>1666584>C: “Maybe we could try to set up a diversion? Start some chaos in the city and get the Titans to leave the tower while everyone else moves in.”D: “You don't. Watch to see who leaves the tower, and then single them out. You can take their home once they're all gone.”Combination. Single one out, take them out to learn how to bypass internal security. Then make a diversion, possibly using the missing Titan, to draw the rest out. Infiltrate the tower and strike at them when they feel the most secure.
>>1666584>B: “Jinx was able to get close and come out with all this info, right? I could probably try an befriend them too and lead an attack from the inside.”
>>1666584>D: “You don't. Watch to see who leaves the tower, and then single them out. You can take their home once they're all gone.”And I just got finished learning about one Marvel villain that's utter bullshit insanity. I aspire to be like that guy in this quest, only more mechanical
>>1666584>B: “Jinx was able to get close and come out with all this info, right? I could probably try an befriend them too and lead an attack from the inside.”Battery is still very unknown and i think enough charismatic to pull it off.
>>1666584D then C.If you single them out they'll rally towards saving their friends, which acts as an ideal diversion to take their tower. Bonus points for taking out several of them before rally together.
>>1666584>E. Go with the plan I outlined in >>1666528
>>1666584>D: “You don't. Watch to see who leaves the tower, and then single them out. You can take their home once they're all gone.” You rub your chin as you ponder the situation for a moment, recalling what Rouge said to you about what the Titans are capable of.As you find your answer, you lean forward in your seat and deliver your response with confidence.“You don't. Watch to see who leaves the tower, and then single them out. You can take their home once they're all gone.”Madame Rouge folds her arms in front of her chest and leans back slightly. She even shows a bit of a smile.“Go on...”You smirk, knowing that you have the right idea based on Rouge's body language.“You said so yourself. The place has state of the art security, and there's no sense fighting them while they hold the home-field advantage. If we single one of them out we could even try to bait the others with the threat of hurting their friend.”Madame Rouge nods, her smile becoming more visible from your words.“You have the right idea, but that is still easier said than done. You have to consider the time needed for making such observations and avoiding detection while doing so.”Madame Rouge returns to her seat, still focused on you as she turns off the projection.“I'm impressed, Battery. It seems you weren't here for Blackfire's sake after all.”“Wait, what?” You can't help but blurt out. Despite everything, you can't seem to hide some of your intentions from Rouge. The room fills with quiet snickering, even from Blackfire next to you.Rouge's lesson continues as she lectures and demonstrates the art of infiltration. Even if you were singled out, you enjoyed the class and felt like you gained some valuable knowledge from the french villainess.As class ends you head out the door with Blackfire, who has begun giggling again from earlier.“Oh man, watching her wipe that smug look off your face was priceless. You thought you were so slick.”You just rub the back of your head, trying to laugh it off with her.“You know, that's a pretty twisted plan of yours. Stalking the Titans and taking them out one by one.” She remarks.“Buuut if you decide to go for Star first, let me in on it.”She elbows you playfully as she makes her request, her her face showing some expectancy to go with her devilish smile.A: “I was just trying to tell her what she wanted to hear. I'd rather take those guys head on.”B: “Come on, we're not really taking on the Titans yet are we?”C: “You wanna make it a date or something?”D: “I actually wanted to ask you about that. What's with Jinx and getting that info anyway?”E: [Write In]
>>1666691>D: “I actually wanted to ask you about that. What's with Jinx and getting that info anyway?”
>>1666691>D: “I actually wanted to ask you about that. What's with Jinx and getting that info anyway?”>E. If it happens, I barely know my powers beyond hit things hard. I'll need training before I take a shot.
>>1666691C: “You wanna make it a date or something?”D: “I actually wanted to ask you about that. What's with Jinx and getting that info anyway?”
>>1666691Combine these >>1666706>>1666709
>>1666691>CI don't care really. Although we could do worse than failed date/friends-with-benefits with Black fire.
>>1666725I support chaos
>>1666725>>1666691I too support this combination
>>1666725>>1666761>>1666765Why overcomplicate things? First teasing her,then act all modest... Do you guys think before voting?
>>1666691>D: “I actually wanted to ask you about that. What's with Jinx and getting that info anyway?”>E. “If it happens, I barely know my powers beyond hit things hard. I'll need training before I take a shot.”You shrug it off, raising one of your hands and looking into your open palm.“If it happens, I barely know my powers beyond 'hit things hard.'”You clench your hand into a tight fist before returning your focus to Blackfire.“I'll need training before I take a shot.”Blackfire puts a hand on your shoulder, her smile showing some sincerity.“You know, I really appreciate that you aren't a dumb-ass and consider that kind of stuff, but you should lighten up just a bit. I doubt anyone outside of the HIVE Five would get to go on that kind of mission anyway.”“Speaking of which...” You begin to inquire.“What's the deal with Jinx getting her hands on that info anyway? How'd she get close to the Titans”Blackfire takes her hand off her shoulder and puts it on her hip, the cruelty in her smiling returning.“Oh, you're gonna love this. Word is that Jinx fell in love with that Kid Flash dweeb during a mission where she was supposed to be capturing him. She was so head-over-heels in love with him that she she even tried to join the Teen Titans. However, she got a harsh reality check when she realized that the citizens here aren't so forgiving as the Titans are. She already had a bad reputation, and I guess the city wouldn't let her forget it because plenty of people wound up rejecting her help.”Blackfire shrugs.“I guess she just gave up on the hero thing and went back to the only person that would accept her.”“Brother Blood.” You acknowledge. Blackfire just gives you a nod.Before you can say anything else, your HIVE communicator starts going off.You quickly pull it out and open the display, reading the newly received message.“Battery, report to vehicle bay for mission briefing and departure.”Blackfire looks at it with you.“Oooh, looks like you're in for a fun night.”She steps away from you, chuckling darkly as she leans against the one of the walls.“It was fun having you in class with me. I'll seeya around.”A: “Later.” [Hurry to the bay area.]B: “What, you don't want to go with me?”C: “Could I get a kiss for luck?”D: “I don't have to go right now, do I? I wanted to ask you some more questions.”
>>1666777>A: “Later.” [Hurry to the bay area.]
>>1666777>A.Nice trips too
>>1666777>ANonchalant as fuck.
>>1666777>A: “Later.” [Hurry to the bay area.]Sweet baby Buddha am I late. But those double-trips oh man.
>>1666777A: “Later.” [Hurry to the bay area.]
>>1666777>C: “Could I get a kiss for luck?”
>>1666777>A: “Later.” [Hurry to the bay area.]Dear lord Satanic and Holy trips
>>1666777>A: “Later.” [Hurry to the bay area.]“Later.” You say, giving her a friendly wave and quickly making your way to the vehicle bay. Looks like Kydd was right, performing well against Adonis seemed to earn you an early mission.You're honestly feeling pretty excited as you open the door leading to where you'll be briefed.As the door slides open, your face starts to light up with amazement. Not only do you feel relief at seeing your own bike parked safely among other vehicles, but said vehicles are something to behold as well. You see a range of interesting vessels, from a “HIVE-Mobile” convertible to a replica starship from a famous movie franchise, you are in awe of the contents of this place.That is, until you hear a familiar voice.“You've got to be fuckin' kiddin' me.”You almost wince as you hear her British accent, turning to see Lady Black leaning against a wall next to the entrance. Her face is full of disgust as her shoulders slump.“Are they really puttin' me with a fuckin' sad cunt like you on this? Bloody-fuckin'-hell.”She gets off the wall, making her way up to you and getting right in your face.“Look, why don't you go back to yer star-slag and get that wee prick of yers stuck in one of 'er nasty holes, yeh? I don't need some toss-pot like you chasin' tail while I try to do some fuckin' work!”A: “Do you think swearing makes you look cool?”B: “Lay off. I'm here to do a job, not listen to you.”C: “Look, we have a bad first impression of each-other, so let's try and reset things. Hi, I'm Battery. Nice to meet you.”D: Stare her down.E: Shove her away.
>>1666847>D: Stare her down.$5 says we are supposed to listen to her on the mission
>>1666847>B: “Lay off. I'm here to do a job, not listen to you.”
>>1666847>A: “Do you think swearing makes you look cool?”
>>1666847No write in option?I wanted to headbutt that hoe, speak her language.
>>1666847>D: Stare her down.
>>1666847>B: “Lay off. I'm here to do a job, not listen to you.”>fuckin' sad cunt like you>sad cuntw-what's so sad about our cunt?
B: “Lay off. I'm here to do a job, not listen to you.”Combing with A, because even if we are not professionals yet, this a fucking mission and we have to act like one.
>>1666847>A>"Also I give free lobotomies."
>>1666847>E: Shove her away.
>>1666847>G: "What is the whole bad-girl attitude a front because you're a bastard kid and you're really just a sad-sack deep down? Cry me a fucking river."
>>1666868Shit man... that's like mean
>>1666868>>1666858>>1666847Yeah, changing to Chaos thing. It is fucking savage
>>1666847>BShe's just a fowl mouthed cockney guys
>>1666868>>1666885Are we all in agreement on being savage? I kind of like it myself.
>>1666892fuck yeah, ya gotta talk her language not be wishy washy cunt
>>1666892I mean, the only meaningful things she has done in the quest have been staring at us and throwing insults at a whim. We may have had enough with her shit. Although, keeping it proffesional, as the B action says(which I think is majority), is the more sensible and mature thing to do.
>>1666899Mmm, might have to go with B anyway in the interest of time.I'll keep that insult tucked away, however.
>>1666892Meh, I don't know, it's savage sure, but it's also fairly childish. I won't fight the majority but I won't vote for it either
>>1666868>>1666847Late but backing this.
>>1666899This. I also don't feel like Battery is the savage type with personal attacks. He seems more like a calm and collected type.
>>1666885>>1666925>>1666847You know what? Lets keep mach confused. I will make my definite selection of B
>>1666847>B: “Lay off. I'm here to do a job, not listen to you.” You get right back in her face. You're not backing out of this because of some rude chick who never grew out of her punk phase doesn't like you.“Lay off. I'm here to do a job, not listen to you.”She just narrows her eyes, intensifying her glare.“Too bad mate, coz yer gonna have to listen to me if you want in on the job.”She sharply turns away from you, reaching into her black coat as she pulls out a pack of smokes.You hear the lighter flick and the soft sounds of burning tobacco as she inhales. You can't help but uncomfortably squint as she turns back to you and blows smoke in your face.“I mean it, you fuck this up an' I'll leave ya as a smear on the road. I operate on a molecular level, so don't fuckin' test me.”She takes another drag as she fiddles with her HIVE Communicator, showing you the screen.“Blood needs a little fundin' for HIVE's Homecomin' dance, an' we're gonna collect donations from this jewelry store.”Her communicator displays a street camera view of a closed jewelry store, it's sign showing off a large diamond.“Simple enough, yeh? Well I got your stupid arse followin' me so I doubt it.”She continues to breathe cancer into her lungs as she angrily pinches the cigarette in her jaw, walking past you and looking towards a glass chamber in the bay close to you both.“You got somethin' to ask, now's the time while I still got a light. I won't have the bloody patience to listen to your bollocks after.”A: “Why are you such a bitch?”B: “You said it yourself, it's a simple robbery. Let's go.”C: “Why are you giving out orders and not the headmaster?”D: “Should we be on the look out for any police presence?”E: “I heard you were Manchester Black's daughter. Who is he?”F: [Write In]
>>1666955>B: “You said it yourself, it's a simple robbery. Let's go.”
>>1666955>C: “Why are you giving out orders and not the headmaster?”
>>1666955>A: “Why are you such a bitch?”
>>1666955>D>Also is this your general smash and grab or should I expect it to get weird and convoluted like halfway through?>Those are cool too, it's just since this is my first time working with anybody here, you know?
>>1666955>F: "Don't worry, I already lost interest in this conversation. Let's go."
>B: “You said it yourself, it's a simple robbery. Let's go.”But also: In which neighborhood is the jewelry store located? If we are going to face the police, I´d better be prepared for it.>>1666974This is nice too
>>1666955>A: “Why are you such a bitch?”WHAT'S YOUR DEAL YOU BITCH?
>>1666974Changing my vote to B I guess>>1666955
>>1666995I would rather wait until the mission is over to snap at her. Let´s see if she keeps being this childish when push comes to shove.
>>1667004If she does I propose that we find where her smokes are and just steal then sell them to someone else. Then buy every carton and pack of smokes from every gas station for miles
>>1666955>B: “You said it yourself, it's a simple robbery. Let's go.”Let's just get this over with.>>1667004Fuckin' this.
>>1667014Where do you keep that machiavellian charm hidden, you rascal?
>>1667031Like a second skin>>1667032Can't steal all the time, because I have a saying when it comes to being a good villain: "Always be polite. Even when you're committing the worst crimes imaginable."Besides, do you wanna head to get arrested for stealing fucking SMOKES? We could do a lot better for reasons we head to prison anon
>>1667045So pull of a bank heist and then buy smokes?
If she keeps being a cunt, I'm all for finding out what her favorite brand of cigarettes are, then cause a shortage by buying them from nearby stores and stealing the trucks that carry the brand. They'd make for a nice gift to the old gang.
>>1667045I always figured the best way to do a villain was generally pretty simple: "You're not the villain."Unless you want to go cartoonishly over the top with all the cliches at least.
>>1666955>B: “You said it yourself, it's a simple robbery. Let's go.”You follow her over to the glass chamber.“You said it yourself, it's a simple robbery. Let's go.” She just continues to look at you with discontent.“Right... In we go, then.”Her eyes glow with a dark green aura as she focuses on the door to the chamber, which in turn gets the same colored aura and opens.You both easily fit inside while Lady Black fiddles with her communicator again.“So, ya ever get hit with a Zeta-Beam before?” She asks dryly while pointing above you both.You give her a confused look before you take your eyes to the ceiling. You seize up as you see what almost appears to a high-tech canon light up with some kind of white energy. It loudly hums as the energy focuses at the “barrel” as you start to panic.Before you can scream, a beam of energy shoots down onto you both and your vision goes completely white.In seconds your vision returns, and it's very apparent that you are no longer in HIVE. You're back in the city, now dark with the night sky looming overhead. You appear to be in some phone booth as you frantically look around.Your fear fades as you feel Lady Black shove her way past you out of the booth, almost falling as she stumbles out the door.“Fuckin' hell! They couldn't make it somethin' roomier?!”You ask her what the hell that was as you follow her out, trying to regain your balance after suddenly teleporting. As you step out, you note that you're in some alley way. It's suspicious for a phone booth to be in a place like this, but you doubt many people would even give it a second glance.“Zeta-Beam technology. Don't know much about it, don't really care either. Gets you on the other side of the world in seconds, but this thing's a way one way trip. If you want to know more about it, ask your girlfriend. She's the one who brought it over.”She turns away, looking down the the alleyway and onto the dark streets.“Now if ya don't mind, I'm gonna be needin' ya to scope out the area. We're just a wee bit away from the store.”A: “Blackfire is NOT my girlfriend.”B: “Why don't YOU do the recon? I might screw it up, remember?”C: “Can anyone just use the Zeta-Beam? What if someone breaks into HIVE that way?”D: Just let it go and do as she says.
>>1667066>D: Just let it go and do as she says.
>>1667066>C: “Can anyone just use the Zeta-Beam? What if someone breaks into HIVE that way?”
>>1667066>A: “Blackfire is NOT my girlfriend.”>D: Just let it go and do as she says.

Examples from the DCU: Black Manta, Joker, Zoom, Vandal Savage, and of course Darkseid.Unapologetically evil, no "I'm trying to do good here guys!"

>>1667098I didn't say that. Just that generally, your non "superinsaneugaizisware" or non despair elementals tend to consider themselves justified.Like Black Manta's primary motives are profit and a hate-boner for Arthur Curry.Oswald Cobblepot is the hero of his own story too.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>1667104
So who is Manchester Black anyway?
>>1667129I don't even consider Battery a villain at this point. Just some dude doing what he thinks is beneficial to him. More of anti-hero than anything. The while Hive Academy thing happened kind of randomly, and he's just getting adjusted after finding out he's some of kind of a superweapon.
>>1667155Yeah, Battery has yet to do anything really villainous, though I guess that's the point of sending us out now to rob a joint.
>>1667129I know you didn't just providing an example. And justification? Their justifications don't exactly mean anything to me, they've proven time and time again that they're terrible people/aliens/whatever. Any reason for pity I should have for them is overshadowed by their deeds.Besides, if we do go the full villain route we'd be doing it for profit and enjoyment. Simple as that I say.And Battery hasn't really done anything evil yet, but I do wanna see where it goes.>>1667161It'll be fun and maybe we can keep some of the haul for us. >>1667155But who made us exactly? No idea
>>1667183>Battery hasn't really done anything evil yetWell well well, we need to change that. League of Shadows Robot SOON.
>>1667066>D: Just let it go and do as she says. You grumble, making your way out of the alley.You peak around the corner, noting that you are pretty close to the jewelry store. In fact, it's right across the street.The streets look totally empty, it's only company being a parked car next to the alley. However, when you look at the car, you notice it looks a bit strange. Aside from the white doors and hood, it's covered in a blue glass-looking material, showing of bizarre tech covering the interior of the car. Something about the design seems familiar.It finally clicks as you turn the corner and realize the building attached to the alley is still open, it's lights pouring onto the sidewalk.Looking inside you see the interior of a small Chinese restaurant, and the owner of the car.You recognize him instantly. His robotic design matches his car perfectly, making you feel like a fool for not catching it right away. His human and cybernetic eyes seem to contently stare down at a smart phone as he waits at a table.Of all the stores you had to rob, you picked the one across from the Chinese restaurant that Cyborg went to get food at.THE Cyborg.Your curse under your breath, going back to Lady Black who's working on a second cigarette.“You're not going to believe this, but Cyborg's here.”Lady Black just looks at you blankly as she flicks her lighter.“You takin' the piss?”You shake your head, causing the cigarette hanging from her mouth to fall to the pavement.“Shit! The last thing I fuckin' need!”She clutches her purple pixie-cut, eyes going wide with new found stress.“Hell, we can't have the Titans comin' down us for some shitty rocks. The hell am I supposed to do now?”A: “Let's just wait him out. Maybe he'll just get his food and leave.”B: “Maybe I can distract him while you get the stuff.”C: “Let's just smash and grab the place. If Cyborg tries to stop us, we can take him.”D: “What happened to the tough girl from earlier? You look like you're about to cry.”E: [Write In]

>>1667228B: “Maybe I can distract him while you get the stuff.”
>>1667236 You're not black. Don't go for the fist bump.
>>1667228>B: “Maybe I can distract him while you get the stuff.”Full on nonviolent. "Hey sir, I'm a civ who intends to stay that way and just discovered I have metal musculature and I have some questions. "

>>1667228>A>Or we could get the jump on him if you're down for it. I siphon electricity, you work on the molecular level. Might not be worth the later trouble, but just Cyborg we can definitely take.Still patience is a conquering virtue. Forget where I read that.So if we're going to take him we need to confirm he's alone. Or we could just shoot the breeze, we're private citizens right now. No reason to worry, yeah?
>>1667228>B: “Maybe I can distract him while you get the stuff.”
>>1667239I thought we were black, SOM told me Battery was the same race as Tofoo.

>>1667228>A: “Let's just wait him out. Maybe he'll just get his food and leave.”>B: “Maybe I can distract him while you get the stuff.”“Let's just wait him out. Maybe he'll just get his food and leave.”Lady Black nods quickly, taking a deep breath.“Yeah, alright... Can't take long, cannit.”You both stand in the alley and wait.And wait...And wait...And wait...After an hour, Lady Black hits her head against a wall and curses through gritted teeth.“WHAT. THE. FUCK! WHAT IS TAKING THAT BASTARD SO LONG?!”You peek around the corner again, peering into the window of the restaurant.Cyborg is just sitting there with his arms folded, his grumpy expression conveying a frustration equal to yours. Seems the cooks are having a rough time or something.You pinch your eyebrows, trying to calm down after waiting such a stupid amount of time.“Look, I'll try to distract Cyborg while you grab the jewels.”Lady Black turns and glares at the floor angrily, sighing.“Don't look like we got any better options... I won't get as much without you helpin' me either... Fuck it, yeh. You keep the bastard busy, I'll get the bloody rocks.”You both approach the edge of the alley, nodding at each-other as you go your own ways.You casually stroll into the restaurant, a bell by the door ringing as you do so. Cyborg quickly looks up at you, the edge starting to fade from his face. He doesn't look irritated anymore, but he doesn't smile either. He honestly looks pretty tired.Time to act personable, or something. Whatever you do, you need to distract him long enough to Lady Black to get the stuff and get out.A: “Hey, you're Cyborg!

>>1667391Shit, that could be it
>>1667363>E "Hey cyborg, wanna hit those showers?"
>>1667363>B: “Sup, loser. I like that you got an ugly paint job to match your wheels.”can't resist
>>1667363A: “Hey, you're Cyborg! I'm a huge fan.”
>>1667363"So... are you the Teen Titans' diversity hire?
>>1667363E: [Write In]How about just causing a scene in the restaurant instead? Play with the fact that the place seems so swamped right now."Huh? Whadaya mean you didn't get my pick up order?!? I called half an hour ago!!" Just be a loud, obnoxious ass, and draw all eyes on us.
>>1667363Challenge him to an arm wrestling match. We win he gives us an autograph and takes a selfie with us. We lose we buy his dinner.
>>1667423I can see this working.Let's do it.
>>1667423Changing to this.
>>1667363>A: “Hey, you're Cyborg! I'm a huge fan.” You show the biggest, friendliest smile you can muster and approach Cyborg's table.“Hey, you're Cyborg! I'm a huge fan.” You tell him as you offer a hand to him.“Oh, uhhh...” He awkwardly starts, taking your hand and giving it a gentle shake. You probably have him fooled for being some ordinary human seeing how delicately he accepted your greeting.“Good to hear, man! I love meeting members of team Boo-yah.” He says, showing off a happy grin.You almost forget that you're on a heist when he smiles at you. Cyborg's friendly mannerism despite how he looked earlier seems to put you at ease, and it feels 100% genuine.You can't help but give him a smile back before you start talking again.“You mind if I sit with you?”“Go on ahead. S'cool.” He says, gesturing to an empty seat across from him. As you take the seat, he continues speaking.“Hey man, I'm gonna give you the bad news now and tell you that I probably got your order hold up. I'm picking up EVERYBODY'S food for back at the tower, and they're likely only halfway done with Starfire's food now.” He tells you with a nervous chuckle.You assure him that it's fine, making up that you were going to order when you came in anyway.So far so good, now you just have to hold his interest.A: “So, how's the Teen Titans life?”B: “So does your team usually shove this kind of stuff onto you or..?”C: “Actually, I wanted to talk to you about something I've been going through.” [Talk to him about how you're a some type of machine]D: “I hate to ask but, can I get an autograph and some photos?”E: [Write In]
>>1667488>C: “Actually, I wanted to talk to you about something I've been going through.” [Talk to him about how you're a some type of machine]
>>1667488>B: “So does your team usually shove this kind of stuff onto you or..?”
>>1667488>A: “So, how's the Teen Titans life?”>B: “So does your team usually shove this kind of stuff onto you or..?”
>>1667488>C: “Actually, I wanted to talk to you about something I've been going through.”
>>1667488>C: “Actually, I wanted to talk to you about something I've been going through.” [Talk to him about how you're a some type of machine]Might as well take the chance while we have it
>>1667488>CIf it trips him up too bad, B and circle round back to C
>>1667488>A: “So, how's the Teen Titans life?”>B: “So does your team usually shove this kind of stuff onto you or..?”Get him talking. Keeping someone distracted with your own conversations risks failure. Get him to open up instead so his focus is put on just us.
>>1667294>>1667296Don't you faggots know that Cyborg has a massive stomach?
If we do C we should stress we're a civvy who wants to stay that way
>>1667488>>A: “So, how's the Teen Titans life?”I don't want to give him info or ideas later when our villainy is out in the open
>>1667515>Not choosing Team Boo-yah over the HIVE
>>1667488>E"How are the showers at Titan Tower?"
>>1667524C'mon Som. I used to post at the start of all your threads. Have faith. I've got a cunning ruse in mind.
>>1667524>Not being catwoman doing what we want when we want.
>>1667531Is it tricking the Titans by replacing the Titan's Robin with the Robin who will be Robin after the next Robin?
>>1667531I'm listening...>>1667538Fair enough
>>1667543... I have TWO cunning ruses in mind.
>>1667549I'm so honored to have inspired the fuck rocks guy.
>>1667549Shit, I forgot that Jason Todd was the Red Hood. Unless he's not the Red Hood this time. But he can't be the Red Hood if Tim Drake as Robin gets captured by the Joker. Then again, he can't be the Red Hood if Joker was the Red Hood. And if this is animated then Joker was the Red Hood so Jason Todd can't be. Okay, so the plan still works.
I wonder how much electricity we can holdCan we sap cyborg dry for example?If so we should start an extremly large counter rouse after what they did to brother blood
>>1667600>sap cyborg dryl-lewd
>>1667620Its even worse because the best way to do it is to hold his hand
>>1667488>C: “Actually, I wanted to talk to you about something I've been going through.” [Talk to him about how you're a some type of machine] You see an opportunity here with your current task. Knowing the kind of person Cyborg is, you decide to come forward with the recent developments in your life.“Actually, I wanted to talk to you about something I've been going through.”He sees the seriousness in your face as you tell him this and he leans forward, listening intently.You tell him about your earliest memories as homeless kid and joining into a gang. You tell him about the night the world as you knew it changed forever in a street fight with Johnny Rancid. You even come clean about taking his bike, but you don't mention HIVE or anything else. You even act ignorant of what your body can do.Cyborg just looks down at the table for a moment, taking it all in.“Man.. I'm sorry, that's really rough.” He looks you in the eye, frowning in empathy.“It was hard enough waking up with this body, but I still remember my folks and life before my accident. I can't imagine what you're going through.”You nod. The way he relates to you starts to alter your perception of everything. When Brother Blood learned of your abilities, he only praised you for the destruction you created while holding the promise of finding the truth over your head. Cyborg, on the other hand, seems to actually consider what you're going through and your well being. It's even more apparent with his next words.“You haven't gone back to the gang or anything right? That's a bad road you were heading down, and I know that learning all this stuff about you can be scary, but maybe it's a good thing if it keeps you away from it.”You nod, saying that you haven't thought about going back to The Oni once, which is actually true.“Good. Besides,” He starts, a small smile starting to show.“It's not all bad. You still look good on the surface.”You show a small smile back, appreciating him trying to show optimism for you.Cyborg looks back at the counter, noticing some bagged food starting to pile up.“I'll have to go soon man, but...”He looks back to you.“You got a place to stay? I don't know if Robin'll put you one the team, but maybe we can try and help you figure some of this stuff out.”A: “Why wouldn't Robin put me on the team?”B: “You'd really help me out?”C: “Nah, I got a place. I appreciate the offer though.”D: “Well, that's another thing...” [Admit you're a member of HIVE.]E: Check your HIVE communicator and see if Lady Black is done before Cyborg tries to go.
>>1667637C: “Nah, I got a place. I appreciate the offer though.”
>>1667637>C: “Nah, I got a place. I appreciate the offer though.”
>>1667637>B: “You'd really help me out?”
>>1667637>B: “You'd really help me out?”>C: “Nah, I got a place. I appreciate the offer though.”>I gotta find a doctor or something.. so I can figure out what's.. you know what.
>>1667637>A: “Why wouldn't Robin put me on the team?”>B: “You'd really help me out?”do not pull out the comunicator
>>1667637>B: “You'd really help me out?”>F. Start gushing about the Titans as cringily as possible.
>>1667637>C: “Nah, I got a place. I appreciate the offer though.”>Write inkeep him stalled a bit longer, ask for a business card or some way of contacting him if our powers get out of hand like a cell number
>>1667673Actually, yeah.Do this.
>>1667673thisnot a bad idea
>>1667637this sounds good>>1667673
Before I write this next vote, I just want to check in with you guys.Are you all starting to feel low energy? If you're ready for me to wrap the thread up, just let me know.

>>1667702You feelin' fatigued?I'm all fine here.
>>1667702Nah, it's a Friday so I'm good for a few more hours. Whenever you're ready to call it quits though just say so, no need to burn out the QM.

>>1667721>Two more hoursERE WE GO LADS
>>1667721Thank goodness, I'm still HIGH ENERGY.
>>1667721Fuck yeah, and anons I should point out. Thank god we're in DC because Marvel has pic related
>>1667745May I present: the Marquis of Death. The guy who taught Dr. Doom about magic, and the one who went around killing every single thing in alternate Marvel universes. And I mean EVERYTHING
>>1667702It's only 7 here, let's do this.
Had. Doom won.
>>1667735>Thank god we're in DCYeah, thank God we only have to deal with Superman, Batman, and Imperiex Prime.
>>1667771By using magic and time shenanigans>>1667773It could be worse
wasn't there a comic where both universes merged?some shit like that could happen
>>1667784>It could be worseBut it couldn't be. Well, it could be a worse iteration of DC I guess.
>>1667784And? He was still bested, not only that but it was because of his stupid amount of cruelty. Not only that but he did the absolute worst thing possible, he pissed Doom off more than Richard ever did.
>>1667637>C: “Nah, I got a place. I appreciate the offer though.”You shake your head.“Nah, I got a place. I appreciate the offer though. Oh, if you guys have a number or something I could call in case my powers get out of control I could really use it.”“You got it man!”A compartment opens from the tip of Cyborg's index finger and a pen-head pops out. He grabs a napkin from the dispenser at the table and starts jotting down a number. You can't help but feel amused at the sight.As he's writing down the number, you hear your HIVE communicator jingle which prompts you to check it under the table.“Got everything I could. You're not totally useless.”“Someone giving you a hard time?” You hear Cyborg from across the table. He must've seen the face you made looking at Black's message.You shake your head, telling him that your crazy neighbor keeps bugging you as you take the napkin from him.“Take it easy, man.” Cyborg tells you with a smile as he stands up.“Don't hesitate to call if you need anything, alright? Us metalheads gotta stick together.”“Boo-yah.” You answer, beaming with a smile.Cyborg gives you a thumbs up.“Boo-yah!” He returns with a grin before getting all the bags of takeout in his arms and hefting them all out to his car.You wait for him to leave before getting out of your seat and putting your hands on your hips. You had a good talk with Cyborg AND your mission seems to be successful, but how the hell are you getting home from here?You check your communicator and find that the map application also works for the Jump City area, showing routes that will lead to secret entrances back to HIVE.Before you can get a move on, you hear someone in the kitchen area yell, followed by pots and pans crashing to the floor.A: Check and see if whoever is back there is alrightB: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.
>>1667806B: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.
>>1667806>A: Check and see if whoever is back there is alright
>>1667806>B: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.It's not wrong because it's not illegal.
>>1667794Yeah and if Doom failed the Marvel multiverse would've been fucked to oblivion because Richards won't kill Ben. But we should stop before we flood the thread with an argument, but let's agree.The Marquis is stupidly powerful. >>1667806>B: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.See you around space cowboy
>>1667806>A: Check and see if whoever is back there is alrightIt won't hurt to take a look
>>1667806>B: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.missions finished, gtfo
>>1667806>BWE AIN'T NO HEEE-RO
>>1667806>B: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.Not our problem. Text Black Spunk and ask her where to meet up to get back to HIVE.Gotta make sure the gems make it back OK.
>>1667806>B: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.
>>1667821>The Marquis is stupidly powerful.There's still worse in DC imo. Mr. Mxyptlk giving a bunch of his power to anyone, for example.
>>1667806>B: Nope. You're done for the night. Go home.>>1667821Okay sure, he's powerful and stupid. Too much time with the mustache twirling super edge.
>>1667851>Okay sure, he's powerful and stupid. Too much time with the mustache twirling super edge.You make a good point. We need to cause Emperor Joker.
>>1667844Mxy isn't that bad>>1667851The Marquis truly is the Blind Idiot Azathoth
>>1667863>Mxy isn't that badBecause he's clinically retarded. Give his power to say... Ra's al Ghul or Atrocitus, and you're gonna have a baaad day.

Sucks that that guy has to clean up a mess, but it's not your problem.As your hand hovers over the door's handle, you hear the door to the kitchen swing open and bang against the wall next to itYou jerk your head around only to catch a glimpse of three knives seconds away from plunging into you.Letting out a gasp, you hold your arms in front of you to try and cover any vital areas on your body as blades impact against you.As they make contact with your body, previously stored electricity focuses on the impact areas and deflect the blades, scattering them across the floor as electrical currents disperse from you.You've managed to avoid getting seriously hurt, but your body dampening the impact took a lot of energy out of you. You definitely feel much weaker than before.After examining the knives for a moment, you look up at your assailant as they address you.“Well, your boss failed to mention that...”Her voice is sensual but drips with violent intent. It comes from a women in a jade gi, it's sleeves torn and showing tactical light-armor across her arms and legs. Her face is obscured by wild black hair and a white mask, similar to the demon masks your gang wears but also showing some feline features, such as whiskers.She draws two long blades from her waist, slowly inching closer to you.“No matter, you're a dead man all the same. The leader of The 47th Street Oni sends her regards...”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnZ6YhNSE3YHer pace suddenly quickens as she lunges forward at you with break-neck speed!A: Try to avoid her attacks and counter!B: See if you can pull some electricity from the room before her attack hits!C: Try to grab her and throw her!D: Jump out the window!

>>1667975>D: Jump out the window! You need to try and get an advantage over her! You quickly turn and lunge towards the display window. You feel air press against your back as her blades whiff, while your shoulder and head crash through the glass.You do a forward roll onto the street as the glass shatters and spreads across the sidewalk, glistening in the store's lights.You pant as you cautiously rise, watching your assailant slowly pursue you with confidence as glass fragments make muffled cracks under her feet.She keeps her eyes focused on you, making her way toward your left flank as she speaks.“This advice will come to you late, but if you're trying to lay low you probably shouldn't pick a place with a giant window. You were easy to spot through the looking glass...”You put your guard up. There's enough space between you now that you safely draw energy, but you can't ignore her speed. You could also try to get the jump on her and suddenly attack, but it's risky.You may have to just run.

>>1668198>>1668200>>1668201>>1668202We gonna get fucked up.
>>1668204Just be honest with yourself and spare her if you wanna bang her.We're a villain, we take what we want and don't have to justify ourselves.
>>1668212Not being edgy or horny, I just want to get Batman after us. Because I'm scared of Superman.
>>1668190Going from a dude who enjoys a tussle to Deathstroke is a hard sell Anon. We have a job to do, also a Titan is here and we made contact. Killing the shit out of someone will kinda blow our cover.
>>1668222We couldn't win a fight with any of the big guys. I'd hope we'd be smart enough to put our hands up or just run if big blue shows up.
>>1668232>We couldn't win a fight with any of the big guysNot even Aquaman? And I wasn't talking about pulling that shit now, just eventually.
>>1668239Yeah I'm pretty sure even with electricity he'd fuck us up. He's also significantly more brutal than batman or supes. Like he might maim/kill.
>>1668222Ah, i heard she was a poor DC version of black cat so my mind jumped to waifu.>>1668225whats deathstroke have to do with anything? thats a girl, anon.Shit we should be getting his help then. Plus i figured we could pin the murder on us being a newbie to our powers and not knowing what the fuck we do.So lethal electricity is aOK but not crushing her head beneath our boot while shes knocked out or anything blatant like that.
>>1668212First off, we're not good enough to be a world class dude that can just roll in and do whatever. Yet. How about we kill the banger who ordered the hit? No more hit, and it sets a precedent. Also fuck the Oni's.
>>1668194>>1668198You have GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME>>1668204First thing we're gonna do is get a boost by absorbing Overload. Because goddamn it'd be stupid to pass on that opportunity>>1668222If we have Batman after us I immediately vote for flashing Cass Cain>>1668246Thus is why we hang back and watch Manta fight him
>>1668248Have you read a DC comic before? because it seems you haven't. Deathstroke the Terminator is a man. He does the whole, you cross me you die bit. He's also had decades of experience and sees the loss of an eye as a handicap for his victims.
>>1668248>Ah, i heard she was a poor DC version of black cat so my mind jumped to waifu.You don't know who Catwoman is?>>1668246>Yeah I'm pretty sure even with electricity he'd fuck us up.Nah, going after Atlantis is a GREAT idea!>>1668252>If we have Batman after us I immediately vote for flashing Cass CainHow about we flash a bullet through her spine instead?
>>1668266>How about we flash a bullet through her spine instead?That move is under copyright by Joseph Kur, besides. I'd prefer if we give Barb Gordon an electric lobotomy
>>1668279Then let's make Cass a quadriplegic! Maybe then Joker will notice us....
>>1668279Meh, so much edge. Wouldn't mind some Deathstroke in this story to be honest. Show some people how to be a proper villain.
>>1668284>Wouldn't mind some Deathstroke in this story to be honestDaddy yes!
>>1668113>A: Charge yourself up! You try to focus on the electricity around you and bring it into you. Street lights pop and currents start to flow towards you, but as you're trying to absorb the electricity she rushes at you again with her incredible speed.She grunts as she carves her blades across your chest, disrupting the energy-flow traveling into as your flesh is cut.You yell in agony as you stagger backward, blood splattering off her blade and across the concrete.You lurch forward, clutching at the large bleeding gash across your body. You look down at your chest, seeing red stained carbon fibers become exposed to the assassin. The stench of your blood hits your nostrils, and it's very reminiscent of oil. As you grimace in pain you come to the conclusion that this is not how you wanted to discover more about your robotic anatomy.The deadly woman chuckles, flicking more blood off her blade.“Interesting... Perhaps I can charge them extra for putting down someone with your features.”She readies herself to strike again, crossing her blades in front of her.Despite your pain, you did manage to regain some energy. You feel like you can fight her, clenching your red-stained fists with fury and putting your guard up once again!A: Duck her next attack and crush her ribs!B: Grab her blades the next time she strikes you and toss her around!C: Try to crack the ground as she runs at you!D: See if you can discharge some of your energy at her with a powerful bolt.E: Get some more distance when charges you again, then striker her legs!F: Get out of there!
>>1668287>F: Get out of there!Our mission is done. Next time we'll fight on our terms.
>>1668285A villain with fucking standards, who with a little intel nearly killed the big leaguer's.
>>1668287>D: See if you can discharge some of your energy at her with a powerful bolt.>E: Get some more distance when charges you again, then striker her legs!
>>1668287>B: Grab her blades the next time she strikes you and toss her around!Can we zap her through her swords?
>>1668287>G: Grab her sword and shock her through it.
>>1668287>A: Duck her next attack and crush her ribs!She attacks with both blades at once? Amateur.
>>1668287>D: See if you can discharge some of your energy at her with a powerful bolt.
>>1668287>B: Grab her blades the next time she strikes you and toss her around!
>>1668287>A: Duck her next attack and crush her ribs!
>>1668315>>1668306>>1668294If this wins, let's agree not to let her dumbass go once we snag her. Throwing flippy assasin's is fun, letting them go after a throw is stupid.
>>1668282>Wanting to get noticed by the JokerNigger you're insane>>1668284You mean Slade he's the best Deathstroke. >>1668292>Villain>StandardsWhy would a villain have those? Then you're just in the grey leaning black moral compass.>>1668287>A: Duck her next attack and crush her ribs!
>>1668329>Nigger you're insaneI meant in the good way, like he would try to one-up us by doing something to Damian Wayne (he should be Robin after Cass is Batgirl, right?)
>>1668287A: Duck her next attack and crush her ribs!
>>1668333Being noticed by Joker is never a good thing.
>>1668329His name is Slade yes. Comic Deathstroke is better. Doesn't get merked by teenagers and turned into Trigon's bitch. Having standards means you have discipline. Tact. Control. Being a cut above.
>>1668342>Implying working for the Joker hasn't improved the lives of many goons and one very special psychologist.

>>1668333>Killing Batman's sonNo anon, that's not what you do to the son of the Bat. You break him into being subservient to you, have him be nothing more than a tool at your disposal. And when it has no more use, you toss it aside.>>1668356Fine job anon>>1668349>Trigon's bitchIf you count working for a demonic overlord to get your body back before betraying him as being a bitch.

>>1668381>No anon, that's not what you do to the son of the Bat. You break him into being subservient to you, have him be nothing more than a tool at your disposal. And when it has no more use, you toss it aside.No, we paralyze Batgirl to motivate Joker to kidnap Batman's son so we can replace TT Robin with LoS Robin.
>>1668381The real Deathstroke never had that problem. Since he chooses when and how to strike best. Dude knocked out Batman multiple times in the same fight, blew out Flash's knee with a shotgun blast. Made Wonder Woman almost had a heart attack...see where I'm going? He's better than that.
>>1668381>If you count working for a demonic overlord to get your body back before betraying him as being a bitch. Then sureI mean, it's not like working for Darkseid or Satanus.

>>1668287>A: Duck her next attack and crush her ribs! She rushes at you again, stabbing her blades forward at your eyes!Unfortunately for her, you're fired up and ready to evade he blinding strike! Ducking under her blades, you roar as you fire your fist forward into her right side. Electricity crackles loudly as the woman painfully heaves from the stunning blow, lurching over you.You aren't finished though, as your bring your other fist into her left side!She gives out a ragged scream of pain as electricity crackles and singes the clothing over her rib cage, the latest blow sending her flying and tumbling across the bloodied road.You watch her for moment, not lowering your guard as she lets out harsh, ragged breathes in her crumpled state. She was agile and deadly, but compared to you she's only human. Her trembling arms stab her blades into the ground as she forces herself up.Her stance staggers for a moment, but she raises her blades in a ready stance. Despite her state, the intent in her eyes don't fade. She has a job to do, and she intends to complete it.A: “Keep this up and you'll get yourself killed. Leave.”B: You're sick of this. Rush her down and pummel that stupid mask of hers.C: Walk up to her and trip her. D: Just walk away from her. You're done here.

>>1668422>D: Just walk away from her. You're done here.

>>1668518Man. Remember when you didn't want to bog down the thread with arguments? How about we have a cease fire about Deathstroke and Prometheus, cool? He'll maybe we'll meet em both.
>>1668550Deal, besides. I remember some of the things Savage did that make him better than Prometheus, not sure why I said him and not Vandal anyway
>>1668556Vandal is infinitely preferrable and super dope. If the train goes that way, I'd be down with hanging out with an immortal badass.
>>1668422>B: You're sick of this. Rush her down and pummel that stupid mask of hers. You bellow out another roar, feeling bolts travel and snap loudly around you. You sprint forward at her, hearing soft claps of lighting as your feet impact the ground.She feebly tries to raise her blades, but it's useless against your barrage of fury as you tackle her to the ground.You see her eyes go wide in fear as your bring your right fist down hard into her mask, more sparks of your energy flying off your fist as your left arm repeats the blow. The pace only increases as you continue to batter the face guard, lighting striking her like a machine gun. The sounds of your barrage sound like the 4th of July going off on her face, every blow quickly cracking and popping with incredible strength. The road around her head cracks and crumbles from the might of your relentless beating.You clutch both your fists together and raise them high above your head, hammering them down one last time. The final impact shatters her mask and sends fragments flying as a small crater forms under her head. Her eyes are wide with terror still as a tear streams down her right eye before they roll back, letting out one last groan of pain as she closes her lids and falls unconscious.Your arms slump as you stay on top of her, catching your breath. You take a good look at her face and appreciate it's beauty despite some bruises, but you really wish the chick wasn't trying to kill you. You then look at the mask fragments, wondering what the hell that was made of and if you could get one of your own.You finally stand, still looking down at her and the wound across your chest that still hasn't healed.A: It's time to go back to HIVE. You're beat. Literally.B: Take her with you back to HIVE. You have questions, and she might be useful if your old gang is after you.C: You're worried about making it back safely if the gang is after you. Call Cyborg.

aw yeah Battery brings home all the pussy-cat
Well heres to hoping this chick will back off once weve asked our questions. Rather not kill anyone if it can be helped.
>>1668590>B: Take her with you back to HIVE. You have questions, and she might be useful if your old gang is after you. You sigh, kneeling down and picking up the beaten girl and hoisting her over your shoulder. She was contracted by your boss, so maybe you can convince this would-be assassin to lead you back to her.As you make your tiring walk back to your academy, your communicator goes off.You don't even bother to look at the screen as you open it, hearing Lady Black's voice scold you over the video feed.“Oi, where the fuck are you? I've been waitin'... Oh fuck, what happened to you?!”“Had a fight with a crazy cat ninja. I kicked her ass so I'm bringing her home.” You grumble, already in the process of ending the call.“ You fought what?! Are you fuckin' mental?! You can't just br-”You almost want to toss the communicator into the street, but you resist the urge and just bring up the map application to find your way home.Halfway there, it starts to rain, and you both are soaked long before you make it to a HIVE entry point.Between smuggling a murderous girl into the school and getting her out of wet clothes without feeling like a pervert, things are going to be interesting.[TO BE CONTINUED]
And that's it for this week! To everyone who stayed up extra late, you're awesome. Thank you so much for participating in these threads.As always, I'll be around for questions and bullying.
>>1668669you were clearly looking forward to this
>>1668669Cheshire is a tempting murder waifu.
>>1668669Battery enjoyed getting her out of her clothes and you can't convince me otherwise!
>>1668669Wasn't able to stay up for the whole thing, but awesome thread! Looking forward to next week. Will you make a character sheet listing training/skills?
>>1668669Next time they should hire Ravager. I think we can take her.
>>1669298I'm glad you enjoyed it!I think once you guys start learning some more skills I'll make a pastebin list.
Also, let me shill my twitter now since I forgot to last night.https://twitter.com/MachPunchQMIf you haven't followed, please consider it so you can see when the quest goes live!I'll wait a while before making an archive in case anons want to add some more posts about robot-cock.
Also,should we try to find out why Lady Black looked at Red X with a sad expression?>You see someone with a skull mask decorated with a red “X” across it. He sports a dark suit and cape, along with other utilities attached to his waist. He's looking down at you as he passes, but then he turns his focus away before going past you and sitting next to Jinx at the round table. You notice that a few other students watched him go by as well, including your dorm neighbor who seems to be showing a rather sad expression as she watches him.
>>1671071>Lady Black showing an emotion other than resting cunt face?That has my attention.
