Titans Quest, takes place in the DC universe and currently focuses on Teen Titans. In particular it focuses on you, Adam Issacs, a member of the team who has been active in the cape community for over two months. Currently you have been given a minor leadership role with in the group and a probationary associate member of the Justice League. Who knows where your career will end up. You might wind up a full time member of the Justice League or a leader of the Teen Titans.The Titans are a New York based team of former sidekicks/young adult heroes who have decided to help train and support teenagers/new heroes just starting out on their own. Naturally while this quest is based on the DC comics universe, things are different. Superheros haven been around since forever, especially since WWII, but super heroics ebb and flow, with the Justice League having only been around less than seven years. The Teen Titans, have been active now for one year and are a little obscure to anyone but news hounds, New Yorkers, and super hero fanatics. On the broader scale, a lot of big villains and heroes haven’t made their debut. Darkseid and the rest of the New Gods are a mystery, Trigon existence is only now being believed, and Booster Gold is still a washed up security guard a couple of centuries into the future.

The flight to Metropolis was far more pleasant than the last at the very least. Little turbulence, better service, your seat was actually comfortable, and no surprise attacks by assassins for hire. You had actual leg room and the First Class compartment was only a little half full lending lessening a the psychological feel of being cramped and trapped like an animal in a stuffed cage. Plus the stewardess refiled your drink, whether it be coffee or mineral water without you having to even ask and the in flight movie wasn’t half bad.What actually half surprised you though was Raven actually showing. With her instantly canceling your previous casual date when you asked her to come with you to New York, you feared you had insulted her someone or crossed some invisible boundary with her at this stage of your relationship. Hell, Raven had practically ran and just sputtered a quick, weak confirmation and conversation ender all in one. Yet here she was in dark blue jeans and a purple blouse shirt reading Songs of a Dead Dreamer by Thomas Ligotti, looking anxious as hell as the plane took over. Given how troubled and pale even by her standards maybe the fake off and height had rocked her stomach. The woman could fly under her own power, it was kinda endearing that a flight on these giant rickety steel machines could cause her to get her to get a little air sick. Some supposed half demon.The skyline and the layout of Metropolis was utterly stunning, especially when compared to New Yorks. Both were imposing and majestic as the sunlight touched their steel and reflected from it like it had touched a pristine lake. But there was decay at the edges of everything at New York. Sure it wasn’t Gotham, but if you looked at it from the right angle you saw that it was mostly an illusion. There was evil buried there. But in Metropolis, you saw three cars stop on a highway to help someone with a flat, no one blaring their horns or cursing out their windows. The spray paint on the walls was all art and d murals of civil rights leaders or of the community’s history, or satire of local politicians….there were no gang tags or threats. Here, it didn’t just look like a fifties ad for the damn place, you could taste it on the air. The Metropolis truly invited you inside of it.“Adam it might be good to meet our patron before the shoot, he is hosting a lunch there. It is mostly for the press but it is good manners in the business to show our alliance to him.” Korri said, leaning over Raven and into your ear.>A.) After we check into our room sure.>B.) It’s support Korri, but yeah sure.>C.) Would you like to go too Raven?>D.) Would it be polite to invite Raven or….?
>>1908161>>B.) It’s support Korri, but yeah sure.

>>1908174Thought it was gonna be Monday/Sunday at 11 to 1.
>>1908184My mom's selling her house, it was late and I forgot when I could do it at will.Also updating.
>>1908194Publish them already. You just need to edit them, right? You can do that retroactively after linking them out.
>>1908161>>B.) It’s support Korri, but yeah sure.>>C.) Would you like to go too Raven?
“After we check into our rooms sure.” You say as your taxi comes to a stop, you practically hoping our the car and to the trunk. “Would it be polite to invite Raven or...”“Do not ask me, I barely understand your customs. If I had guess though, a little. Maybe if she were your wife...” Korri says stepping our into the sunlight, blocking the sun out of eyes with one hand and smiling underneath the shade and a pair of outrageously big and pink sunglasses.You walk, well more like waddled, into the hotel foyer with what was an absurd among of luggage between you and Korri. Neither of were carrying around the clothes you’d be using during the ad campaign but you had an image to maintain and that required sequence and variety. You thank god that Raven only brought one bag and that you had super strength, making you only look ridiculous and not actually strain yourself liked it might look to an observer as you walked crouched over all the way to the elevator.You were used to places like these to the point it didn’t even blip on the radar. Dark lighting, carpets and rugs worth more than you did in a year, and some playing on a grand piano in an art deco bar with overpriced shiny furniture and even more overpriced drinks. The life style of rich and fabulous had a habit of becoming mundane and boring once you got used to the facade.At least until you step into Raven’s and your room. Raven’s drops her purse or whatever it is she’s handling. You don’t really know for sure, you aren’t looking at her. Twin beds with silk sheets and some type of fabric on the blankets that just wants to make you sink in them. A big screen tv tastefully embedded into a dresser someone, able to hidden and closed if it becomes to much of an eyesore or because you just hate television. Two bathrooms, one with just a toilet and shower; the shower see through and both marble, and other with a large Jacuzzi bathtub obviously meant to fit more than one person. Oh and art was surrealistic and not from some art piece farm found in every motel room. All real, all local you had to guess.“Ah, Adam, you sure you just don’t want to stay and order room service?” Raven says softly. “I don’t ever want to leave.”>A.) You can stay if you want, I got to go though.>B.) Yeah let’s ditch.>C.) No, come on we are just coming back anyway tonight.>D.) If the room’s this night, imagine what Metropolis looks like. Let’s ditch.
>>1908307>>A.) You can stay if you want, I got to go though.
>>1908307>A.) You can stay if you want, I got to go though"You can come if you want to, too."
>>1908307>A.) You can stay if you want, I got to go though.Of course, Adam can be a 'fashionably late', if Raven catches my meaning
>>1908307>Write in: Would love to. But as Kori said it's a good thing to go. And altought this is more a secret identity gig it would be better if i pretended to be the starting midel trying to get a good contract or something.No rest for the wicked. No rest for the supermodel tok.
>>1908307>>A.) You can stay if you want, I got to go though.Just caught up. Can I get a discord invite? The one above expired.
“You can stay if you want, I got to go though Raven.” You say, just as Raven plops down on the bed furthest from the door.“I’m staying, if I’m not here when you’re back it’s because I’ve merged with this room!” Raven says wrapping the covers around herself and sighing. She was practically sinking into the damned thing like it was quicksand it was so soft. You remember how it looked like she was going to barf and the look of utter bliss on her now. You just smile and go back down stairs without bothering to try and add anything further.The elevators are just utterly busy though, groups and groups of guests, businessmen, staff, and photographers just cram a whole row of them like factory farm chickens into cages. You attempted to catch one without tipping off your powers, as you watch someone tap and hold a button while you made your way down the hallway. You have a feeling it was the close button the way the doors almost slam together. It almost ruins the atmosphere of the place.Just as you are about to get frustrated, you turn around and see two men in an open elevator next to you. One was a lanky red head about your age with an over sized and powerful looking camera that looked like it should have sent the boy crashing to the ground, who held one of the doors with one hand. Next to him was a man in his early thirties who with a build and jaw that he just came off a farm school’s football starting line, with his hands on the other.“People in this town can be so rude, in here sir.” A charming soft but deep voice comes out of the farm boy.“Thank you.” You ran over and into the elevator, watching as the doors close slowly.“Don’t mention it. We are going be here for awhile, no need to rush and not lend a hand or least share a ride.” The buff farm boy continues.“Are you staff or work with the hotel?” You ask suddenly with thinking“No, we’re with the Daily Planet. I’m Clark Kent, that right there is our photographer Jimmy Olsen.”>A.) Adam Issacs nice to meet you>B.) Superman’s best pal Jimmy Olsen>C.) Here on business too, guess we’re here for the same reason.>D.) No offense but you guys don’t seem like you’d cover the fashion beat
>>1908432>>A.) Adam Issacs nice to meet you>>C.) Here on business too, guess we’re here for the same reason.what nice guys
>>1908432>A.) Adam Issacs nice to meet you>C.) Here on business too, guess we’re here for the same reason.
>>1908412>>1908438Why? It's a dead Discord server.>>1908432>A.) Adam Issacs nice to meet you>C.) Here on business too, guess we’re here for the same reason.>D.) No offense but you guys don’t seem like you’d cover the fashion beat
>>1908432>A.) Adam Issacs nice to meet you>C.) Here on business too, guess we’re here for the same reason.>D.) No offense but you guys don’t seem like you’d cover the fashion beat
>>1908432>>A.) Adam Issacs nice to meet you>>C.) Here on business too, guess we’re here for the same reason.(Jk) Have I met you before? You seem familiar somehow.
“Adam Issacs, nice to meet you” You say with a smile and a hand out, both of them quickly taking it and shaking it in a quick but friendly grip. Clark there had a much softer grip then you thought.“Here on business too, guess we’re here for the same reason.” You say with a shrug. “No offense but you guys don’t seem like you’d cover the fashion beat though.”“None taken, but now that you say it you definitely look like model type.” Jimmy Olsen says, picking up his camera and aiming it at you. “You mind?”“Go ahead.” You reply with a shrug as a bright light washes over your briefly.“To be honest I usually handle local business and political news.” Clark says, a friendly smile on his face but his eyes going sharp and bright. “But I’m covering for a friend who’s on maternity leave. I’m not exactly the ace reporter Louis is. Almost half of what I do now is fill in when we’re short handed or someone else is busy in fact. Though I must admit I do have a personal stake in this and requested this story personally.”“What? Got a crush on Korri? She just dumped someone and you’re a little old for her tastes...” You start, prompting both Jimmy and then eventually Clark to double over with laughter. Kent even begins to smack your back at that and has to wipe tears out of one of his eyes.“Oh man was that a good one, no though. I’m here for the patron of this cross promotion, Lex Luthor.”>A.) You and Lex friends or something? I hear he’s a great guy>B.) Yeah was surprised he’s branching out to real estate currently.>C.) Oh yeah, I hear the chump is going to run against Reagan, that’s insane. Poor dumb bastard>D.) You got something against Lex? He and Superman made this town!
>>1908601>>C.) Oh yeah, I hear the chump is going to run against Reagan, that’s insane. Poor dumb bastardits a pick you Lex's plot moment
>>1908601>A>CPresident Lex when?
>>1908601>I’m not exactly the ace reporter Louis is.>Louis>C.) Oh yeah, I hear the chump is going to run against Reagan, that’s insane. Poor dumb bastardBut add that it might be interesting to see the campaign he goes with.
>>1908601>>B.) Yeah was surprised he’s branching out to real estate currently.
“Oh yeah, I hear the chump is going to run against Reagan. Totally insane, poor dumb bastard.” You say shaking your head. You hated Reagan but man was he popular and an incumbent president. Lex Luthor never held office and was running as a left running Republican. He had no chance. You’d think the smartest man in the world would know better.“We’ll see.” Clark Kent says skeptically, much to your surprise. You turn to face him and see he means exactly what he said, he wasn’t just being noncommittal or polite. He thinks Lex could pull it off. “Don’t get me wrong I hope he doesn’t but...” Kent starts nervously, apparnetly seeing the look on your face.“Why you a Republican or a Reagancrat?” You ask.“Oh lord no. My dad fought in WWII and got the family farm running because FDR, my mom’s grand pappy was gunned down in by Pinkertons during a strike. Never voting for anti union and someone like either of them.” Clark says even more fidgety.>A.) So why don’t you want to him to win?>B.) So why do you think he can win.>C.) Hey he’s cutting my paycheck, so he’s alright in my book until they start bouncin’>D.) Let me guess by that accent...you’re from Smallville right?
>>1908723>B.) So why do you think he can win.
>>1908723>>A.) So why don’t you want to him to win?
>>1908723>>D.) Let me guess by that accent...you’re from Smallville right?>A.) So why don’t you want to him to win?
>>1908723>D.) Let me guess by that accent...you’re from Smallville right?
>>1908723>D.) Let me guess by that accent...you’re from Smallville right?Dam HIVE imprint man.
“Let me guess by that accent you’re from...Smallvillie right?” You ask, rubbing your chin as you do so.“Damn you’re good. He got you farm boy.” Jimmy says, playfully elbowing Kent, who just swats him away.“Well you got me.” Clark says with a laugh, readjusting his hat as he does so.“So why don’t you want Luthor to win? He’s been great for Metropolis and Maryland in general. I mean he is to the left of Reagan, he wants to end all the dick waving between us and Russia.” You ask.“It’s complicated. I don’t have the hard facts to back it up, but rumor has it he’s both armed Intergang and bought some of their alien tech.” Clark confides, practially whispering into your ear.“Yeah, we can’t prove it but he’s been trying to kill Superman for years! I can’t bieleve Clark and Luthor go back and used be buddies. His best friend has made me insane, turned me into a narcissistic psychic, and giant lion turtle, into a negative energy Superman...” Jimmy says, now ranting and yelling/“Is any of that true?” You ask.“All of it and more.” Clark sighs, face palmingFinally the elevator comes to a stop and the doors open. A familiar beautiful orange face beams in your direction and grabs you roughly by the arm. She still out powered you by a great deal and it showed, she practically flew with you across the hotel, her and the two reporters laughter ringing in your ears as you did so. You had to be glad that you hadn’t eaten lunch yet, you would have been sick.“I was afaird you were both were going to ditch, I am so glad I was just being a stupid blahnuta there.” Starfire says cheerfilly. “Mr. Luthor is a most interesting man Adam. Did you know he has created the first shuttle to Mars?”“Yeah...” You say before stopping yourself. Neither of the reporters really had proof did they? “NASA and Lex are going to launch it in April supposedly.” “The galactic community is going to be so envious of the Martians!” Korri says, even more good nature shining through. “Would you mind introducing yourself to him as my boyfriend like you did before? I like the man but I fear his bravado is an attempt to sleep with me. I am not interested in...” She starts.>A.) Ah sure>B.) I came here with Raven Korri, that might not fly.>C.) I came here with Raven Korri, you know that would imply that…>D.) Actually I’m going to have to cash a rain check. Those two reporters seemed nice and are here for the shot anyway. Great way to raise my profile.
>>1908861>>A.) Ah sure>C.) I came here with Raven Korri, you know that would imply that…
>>1908861>A.) Ah sure

>>1908861>CThen since she won't mind>AGuess we are going to get Bruce playboy fame too uh?
A and C win.Last update of the night, will start this again Friday and then a normal update Sat.1st week of Oct, I'll run Wed, Thurs, and Fri. I will not be online at all that weekend.
>>1908901Pretty much, you guys are barely on the public's radar at this point but you are considered a big up and commer so this shit is going to follow you
>>1908923Remember to publish the omakes and S-links you've already finished writing.Don't try that "but I have to edit them tho!" bullshit. You know you don't edit anything.
“I came here with Raven, Korri. You know that would imply that we...” You say, leaving the pregnant pause in the air for Korri to figure out on her own. She was by no means a stupid women or the like, she could easily piece together an insinuation.“That we are all lovers. That is not uncommon in this type of work Adam or on my world whatsoever. When I was a girl, I planned weddings with the assumption that I would have one wife and two husbands Adam. If Dick was not so supposedly adamant on monogamy, I would asked Raven or you if you were cur-” Korri says her sweet smile still on her face.“Okay, sure if you don’t mind.” You shrug a little embarrassed. Korri was making you out to be quite the ladies man here. That wasn’t the case at all, how many times had you sex? Just once...well one night with Harley Quinn. Then again, Artemis had a thing for you and you were specifically assigned to pretend date Power Girl. Nah, you were reading way too much into it, just like Korri did.
Korri precedes to lead you towards the in hotel restaurant, this time without lifting and flying you there, and just by the hand. The decorum of the place was pretty much the standard, boring high quality setting these places always were. Fine but non eye catching art, expensive carpets and high quality wood with the imperfects left in to lend it authenticity and tastefully rustic or natural feel depending on what the patron wanted to see. Lightly patterned table clothes that told you that they were both made by hand and that you needn’t keep your eyes on them either, they would be wisked away after the meal. Fine silverware made from real silverware that lit a brilliant iridescence glow with the candles and low lighting from the carnival glass above hit it.All the men and women working and eating there but one were standard too for the most part. Black vests and slacks that looked like clean coal. Perfect egg white shirts with silver or gold buttons up from their collars down to the bottoms of their pants. Some women wear colored bright as the sun dresses and staff wore aprons, but that minor rebellion itself was patterned Neon blues, sparkly silvers, and low intensity reds. All adding not contrasting with the sequence going on here. A bunch of people pretending to be important and special who couldn’t stand out in a room.All but one. A bald tan man wearing the same general attire but someone brightening the room like the sun itself, each table and person seeming to revolve around and center itself on the sphere he sets for himself just as he steps forward step by step. You can’t exactly say he’s in shape, he about fifteen to twenty pounds overweight. He has some muscle, but not the type that bodybuilders who can’t shake off distended stomachs and guts that just ate fat got, not by a long shoot. His eye sparkling with a brilliant blue blot of intelligence, but he has a slightly red, squashed nose like it had been broken a few time or had a couple too many drinks. Likewise with the top of his ears swelled and stuck out like their were boxed. Still there was something inside him that seemed to be rumbling out, threatening to explode at any minute.“Korri, so this must be...Adam correct?” Lex Luthor says with a smile, sticking out a friendly hand>End
>>1909088Thanks for running.
>>1909088thanks for runningalso what was Korri gonna sayor is it gonna be one of those thing were we will never know
>>1909088Thanks for running.Omakes and S-Links now, please, before you "forget" again.>>1909111She meant if we're curious as to what Tamaranian pussy feels like.

Lex Luthor was many things up to and including the smartest person in the world, something he was quick to remind everyone of. One thing you couldn’t label him though was being humble. He didn’t lie or even embellish of achievements of advancements but the man was a consummate self promoter. He spoke a dozen times of Lexcorp being the fist private institution to successful launch both an aerospace and astronautic vessels, the second to reach the moon, about how he walked on the moon, how he was making a successful line or autonomic drones and robots for warfare and civilian use, and on and on. All impressive awe inspiring feats, all something he wanted to make sure people were constantly reminded of when anyone interacted with him.It was with great luck on his part that he sense of charisma and magnetism then when he these stories about his achievements. He sold the difficulty of every task and every obstacle he faced, you practically sweating from it on his behalf, and when he tells you in a raspy voice the tales of his victory, you can taste it on your lips however briefly as well. Hell even when he repeats it someone else the structure of the story changes and so do the inflections, keeping it a little fresh as he pats himself on the back to someone new next to him. Luthor was so close to be insufferable genius braggart and yet so far it was a little amazing to be honest.You a little surprised about how little he talked about his upcoming political campaign. Just normal stuff about how Reagan was a mad man when it came to foreign policy, that we meddled in areas of the world we never should and alienating future allies in various regions, and that a nuclear exchange was closer today that it had been in decades and that the world in front of us could end at any minute if we continued on this godforsaken path into apocalypse. No what he mostly talked about was his new upper scale hotel chain he was heading. How locations in Chicago, Star City, and Jump City were already under construction and be up by next year. About how it was going to revolutionize how upper middle class and lower upper class professionals traveled. You had to be honest, you barley got it. The man had a nose for business that all the programming H.I.V.E gave you just couldn’t match.“Well, enough about me. How is it being around a Titan Adam? Must be a little intimidating dating and working with some one that powerful how do you make it work?” Lex asks, taking a sip of water as he says it.>A.) Not that hard, I respect Korri and she does the same for me. She saves people for a living can’t begrudge her.>B.) Raven’s fine, don’t get why people get that.>C.) A little, but Korri’s good people. She dedicates her life to saving people.>D.) Hey you can launch off an army of drones at a moments notice, if anything we should be scared of you (laugh)>E.) Write in
>>1918953>CReplace "Korri" with "the titans" dont want to get wrapped up further in lying but at the same time not embarrass starfire after she just introduced us.
>>1918953>>A.) Not that hard, I respect Korri and she does the same for me. She saves people for a living can’t begrudge her.

>>1918992I will throw my vote on this as well.
“A little but the Titans are good people. They dedicate their lives to saving people after all you say.” You say, turning your attention back down to your plate, where a simple but no doubt over priced salad lay so far half eaten.“Hmm, I never really cared for the ‘costumed hero’ personally. Present company not included of course” Luthor says smiling at Korri. “The idea of taking the law into your own hand always struck me as encouraging vigilantism. How many heroes have the training to deal with armed suspects or people? How many have been schooled into deescalating hostage situations? I think half the time super maniacs and heroes get into brawls that destroy half of Central City, it’s they aren’t equipped to handle those type of confrontations whatsoever. Hell even saving people from burning buildings can be dangerous for everyone involved if you don’t have the training to do so.”“I can assure you the Titans are well trained in handling all those types of situations. Everyone from Nightwing to Black Canary train the team in law enforcement procedures. Anyone who could harm civilians or themselves are not allowed to take place on missions.” Korri says loudly banging the table near her a bit.Lex just holds up his hands and mock defeat and smile sheepishly. The look of a half remorseful kid, only half understanding what he did wrong when he put his hand in the cookie jar and mostly sad over the face that he got caught. Still it seems to calm down Korri, who’s orange skin barely fails to concel a blush and then brings up a towel to her mouth obstenibly to clean her mouth but no doubt in order to hide herself.“Of course. But just like you wouldn’t trust everyone with an assulat rifle, surely you wouldn’t trust every single person with that amount of power as well. It’s why there are such things as super villains. I have zero doubt while not all or even most heroes are unable to sue their powers wisely there is a culture that is going to lead to problems.”>A.) You honestly trust the government with the power that? You just mentioned how Reagan was an imperialist, what if he had an army of super powered people? Cops aren’t exactly know for being adverse to shooting first and asking questions latter. They didn’t chose what they are, they’re making the best of it.>B.) I gotta to admit you have a point Lex>C.) I gotta to admit you have a point, but at least the JLA isn’t overthrowing governments or the like. The USA would be doing it differently if they were in charge>D.) Write in
>>1919123>D'Remain silent'Lets not get into it with luthor, it changes nothing besides potentially getting a supervillians negative attention while in our civilian persona.
>>1919123>That's why training was so important otherwise mistakes occur. I was forcibly dragged into a fight before I was ready, and a kid with a lot of anger and not of sense lost his life because he pulled a grenade on me and I panicked. Trying to control people with powers is likely only going to result in more laws broken. I mean loot at Tianamen Square, The Chinese have near total control over everything and t still happened.
>>1919164You haven't come out as a Titan or hero yet
>>1919123>>A.) You honestly trust the government with the power that? You just mentioned how Reagan was an imperialist, what if he had an army of super powered people? Cops aren’t exactly know for being adverse to shooting first and asking questions latter. They didn’t chose what they are, they’re making the best of it.>>1919164that giving way too much info

>>1919123>C.) I gotta to admit you have a point, but at least the JLA isn’t overthrowing governments or the like. The USA would be doing it differently if they were in charge>D.) Write inBasically say that it’s not great but it’s probably better than letting the government having 100% control.
>>1919123>C.)But replace the USA for the countries Then meta-humans would start to be used as weapons.
>>1919164Secret identity mate we are in civilian clothing right now.
>>1919164We could use this as a reference to the need of trainning but Luthor would easily turn this around explaining that the JL isn't good enough to train other meta-humans.
“You honestly trust the government with that power Mr. Luthor? You just mentioned how Reagan was an imperialist, what if he had an army of super powered people at his beck and call? Cops aren’t exactly know for being adverse to shooting first and asking questions later either. Korri and the others didn’t chose what they are, they’re making the best of it and we’re lucky to have so many people using their powers for good.” You say after finally finishing one last swallow of your food. “I get what you’re saying Mr. Luthor and I respect it but what we have now is the least terrible possible option of a long list of horrfying ones. If we had it your way instead of stockpiling nukes, countries would be stockpiling metahumans. We’d have an entirely different type of arms race.”Lex look at you deadeyed and completely transfixed on your for almost a minute. It isn’t a look of anger or hate but of pure fascination and surprise. Like if Beethoven had risen from the grave, taken the seat your own, and started work on another composition right then and there. Finally he blinks and lets out a deep, raspy laugh to the point he’s leaning over in his chair from the strain of it.“Oh Mr. Issacs, I can’t say I agree with anything you just said there...it’s all very cynical, I utterly pity the man or woman takes you for just a pretty face and tries to take you on in politics. They are in for a very nasty surprise.” Lex says looking at his watch. “Now if you’d excuse me...actually what the hell, would you like to see something interesting you two?”>A.) Sure>B.) I’d love to but the shoot will be coming up soon and we can’t be late for work.>C.) I’m sorry, but it’s not every day your in Metropolis, I’d love to spend it with my girlfriend before work starts.
>>1919231>A.) Sureas long as we can make the shoot in time
>>1919231>>C.) I’m sorry, but it’s not every day your in Metropolis, I’d love to spend it with my girlfriend before work starts.I don't know if I should be happy or scared cause I think we just got Lex Luthor's respect or his ire which if you think about it is the same thing really

>>1919393Seconded.You keep saying “tomorrow” or “tonight” and we all know that’s bullshit.
relax guys its just fun shit he adds to make it more fun he didn't have to do it in the first place
“Sure” You say looking at Korri for confirmation, who is just smiles and barely contained excitement at all this.Lex Luthor just smiles and motions towards the back door with his head. While you get up by yourself, you notice Lex offering his hand to Korri to help her up. Maybe he trying to get her in bed like she was worried about. But as he lifts her up, you notice the satisfaction of his face otherwise. He just likes the idea of being seen with either of you, and the best way for that was through manners it seemed. You had a feeling Lex liked this inner circle being powerful, rich, famous and beautiful.Luthor leads you out towards the back where a black limo, and a shapely short haired brunet in a classic light black chauffeur outfit waiting. As she saw Korri her hand flashed to her hip for a moment, you notice Luthor shaking his head and her suddenly stopping and standing straight. As soon as you are about to reach the limo she opens the door for you all and offers a cold robotic smile.“Now Mr. Issacs are you sure you don’t want to take your other guest with us?” Lex says with a smile while getting into the car. “It seems to be very rude to leave your girlfriend in your room like that.”“How...” Korri starts“I own the hotel dear, knew soon as you all checked in. Secruity. Funny I thought you said Adam was your boyfriend but he’s sharing a room with your team mate Raven. Odd.”>A.) Not really, Korri’s race is polygamy and so am I>B.) She doesn’t like people harassing her on set Mr Luthor and I play along for her sake. >C.) She was afraid you might make a move on her Mr. Luthor, a lot of rich people are just interested in her for her looks.>D.) We’re experimenting
>>1919402>>B.) She doesn’t like people harassing her on set Mr Luthor and I play along for her sake.
>>1919402>>B.) She doesn’t like people harassing her on set Mr Luthor and I play along for her sake.I'm not even surprised Lex found that out this is "his city"
>>1919402>B.) She doesn’t like people harassing her on set Mr Luthor and I play along for her sake.
>>1919402>>B.) She doesn’t like people harassing her on set Mr Luthor and I play along for her sake.I don't know why you guys picked anything but C on that last post.
>>1919420Gotta take em plot hooks boi! Also dont YOU wanna see what Lex has in store? Much more exciting.
>>1919402>>1919417btw I wanna add that we maybe call Raven to tag along, or at least inform her where we are going. (in case shit goes down.)
>>1919398Then why the fuck does he keep saying he'll do it and then doesn't fucking do it?
>>1919435cause he was sick
>>1919434In case its not assumed, ill second this.
>>1919430Nah mate, I kinda wanted to get to the awkward funny bit where we had to explain to Raven that bringing her along WASN'T an invitation to a threesome, and then Starfire pops up saying it's not out of the question.
>>1919402>>B.) She doesn’t like people harassing her on set Mr Luthor and I play along for her sake.>>1919441Then I guess he's sick all the time then. He keeps doing this.
>>1919451And don’t forget not announcing anything at all on Twitter or Discord.
“Korri doesn’t like people harassing her on set Mr. Luthor. A ‘boyfriend’ makes a good buffer a lot of men respect and don’t mess with. So I pretend to be her boyfriend to keep the creeps at bay.” You answer, shrugging you shoulders as you so.Luthor and the chauffeur both shot a look at each other and frown at you for a moment. For whatever reason they don’t like or trust that answer to much it seems. They seem to be giving you the once over a little after you tell them that, like you just didn’t tell the truth and lied for whatever reason. Both their face turn into sweet smiles after that inspection. Both are now warm and genuine. Odd that they would be so suspicious over Korri and you. They knew Korri and Raven were superheroes.Korri and you both get into the limo with Lex, as the car just rockets off. The pristine, friendly of exterior lasts quite a while, much longer than it would in New York or Gotham. But after ten or so minutes, after you leave the highways and image friendly streets, you see the first signs of urban decay and rot. Bricks are cracking with charm and planning, their dirt covered and the graffiati seems more threatening. Men and women in shabby clothing push shopping carts filled with soda and other metal cans, looted from trash cans and the like. The only warm spot you see is a bunch of newspaper boys ridiing around on their bikes, each with a bag labeled “The Daily Planet” and each with a jacket that proudly declares that they are members of the Newspaper Boys Legion.The Suicide Slums you suddenly think. The center of poverty and crime in Metropolis...and the Guardian. H.I.V.E had a lot of knowledge programmed into your noggin for this little ghetto but you didn’t need to tell you it’s deal, you had two eyes. Every city had it’s dark side and this was Metropolis’ nothing could be simpler.The limo comes to a stop suddenly and Lex gets out, adjusting his tie and walking towards the end of a nearly empty alleyway. He stops for a moment looking around and then opens the lid a huge trash container and pressing around for something. Suddenly the trash container sinks into the ground except for it’s central trunk of the thing. It just starts spinning and spinning until silver tainted glass is seen and then a lime green metal suit with purple compartments is revealed.“You said there was going to be an arms build up if superheroes were controlled by the government Adam? Well it’s already started. The United States and Soviet Union already hate the League and fear Superman might take over any day.” Luthor says pointing at the suit. “They’ve contracted me to build weapons and so I built this instead.”>A.) Isn’t that a weapon too?>B.) Why are you showing Korri this?>C.) Lex why did you leave this here? It could fall into the wrong hands.>D.) What is this?
>>1919542>>C.) Lex why did you leave this here? It could fall into the wrong hands.>D.) What is this?
>>1919542>B.) Why are you showing Korri this?
>>1919542>>B.) Why are you showing Korri this?>>D.) What is this?
>>1919542>>C.) Lex why did you leave this here? It could fall into the wrong hands.I'm now imagining some homeless dude going through the trash and ends up with an exo-suit.
>>1919542>B.) Why are you showing Korri this?>D.) What is this?
>>1919542>>C.) Lex why did you leave this here? It could fall into the wrong hands.>>D.) What is this?
“What is this Lex?” You ask, you and Korri moving slowly towards the green suit and Lex Luthor. Not everyday even a superhero sees a super weapon pop out of a trash container in the middle of downtrodden and crime ridden alleyway“This? This is the MinuteMan XV-000 prototype.” Lex says, putting his hand flat against the suit, a wide smile on his face and a vacant look in his eyes. “It isn’t a lethal tool solely. It works as an exo suit that could keep a person alive in space or deep underwater, making them nearly impervious to any form of damage or environmental hazard, and granting them amazing strength, dexterity, and speed for engineering work in extreme conditions. Perfect for what I orginally intended it too. Makes a good combat exoskeleton, that capable of going to toe to toe with a mid to high tier meta human or advanced Soviet war machines.”“Why did you leave this here? It could fall into any on lookers hands.” You almost yell.“Only if they have a fresh sample of my DNA, which is a lot easier to get hold of in Lexcorp labs or other business practices. No, it’s harder for them to gain access to it out here in the Suicide Slums than, out in the boonies where no one would think to look.” Lex continues, keeping his eyes on the machine in front of him and not you.“Okay but then why show Korri this?” You ask“So that I will know and could tell the league.” Korri says suddenly. “You do not want to make Superman think you plan on using this on him.”“Exactly Starfire. Very well put. I want to the Titans to inform the Justice League that I Lex Luthor have been commanded by the United States Government, the agency of ARGUS to be specific and to go even further Director Amanda Waller. I have to no interest in starting a war with you people, too many people would die in the crossfire and if any side won it would be to the detriment of the humanity at large. After all that devastation and with the victor with all the remaining power, tyranny would the result either way.” Luthor says.>A.) ARGUS?>B.) Who the hell is Amanda Waller >C.) So you really don’t trust meta humans at all do you?>D.) Bet you’re still making a pretty penny off this.>E.) Those Daily Planet reporters are on to you
>>1919755>A.) ARGUS?>B.) Who the hell is Amanda Waller
>>1919755>A.) ARGUS?>>B.) Who the hell is Amanda Waller
>>1919755>>A.) ARGUS?>>B.) Who the hell is Amanda Waller
>>1919755>F.) So you got some versions for use in firefighting and rescue work? Cause that would be pretty nice.
>>1919755>>C.) So you really don’t trust meta humans at all do you?We can ask Kori for A and B later.>F.) So you got some versions for use in firefighting and rescue work? Cause that would be pretty nice.Let's not be completely hostile to Let.
“Who the hell is Amanda Waller and what the fuck is ARGUS?”“Amanda Waller is a forty three year old 5’5, 295 pounds human shaped nightmare. She started off as a congressional aide to some war hawk and then went off into the dark under belly of the House’s intelligence bureaucracy and some out years later a favorite and leader of the American Intelligence Community. She ahead of a dozen smaller clandestine intel and covert military groups, as well as liaison to both the Martians and the Justice League. She’s also their mortal enemy and has tried to buy kryptonite off Wayne and me a dozen times.” Lex sighs.“ARGUS, or Advanced Research Group Uniting Superhumans, is a branch of the United States federal government, regulating and monitoring superheros and metahumans. On paper at least. In reality it acts as the diplomatic wing and extension of the US government to negotiate and talk with Justice League, the Justice Society, and groups like the Titans. Unofficially to even most members it also spies on the lot of them and prepares for the day the fear is inevitable: when Superman or Korri grow tried of their charade and decide to conquer the Earth and unleash their hidden arsenals to stop them. Of which they currently think they will fail to do so by a large and rather embarrassing margin. The only chance of success currently would be self destruction. Which they’ve surprisingly concluded isn’t worth it.” Lex says rather drolly. Lex Luthor walks over to Korri and hands her a large floppy disk with a stern look on his face. All the bemusement and charm that came along with that dour nature was completely gone, only Lex Luthor the businessman remained. Even though he only came up to Korri’s breasts and your chin, you had to admit he cut an intimidating figure regardless. Korri takes it slowly eyes never leave his.“Please give this to Superman, I have other business to take care of personally. My driver, Mercy, will take you both back to the hotel and shoot. I’m not your enemy here remember that.” Lex says turning his back to both of you and walking the other way. “Or your friend for that matter.”BOOOOMMMMMMMA large pattern of rings shoots out in front of Lex followed by a flash of light. You close your eyes, out of reflex or sudden fear of going to blind you don’t know. But you still see bright white with your eyes closed completely shut. When you open them, Lex Luthor is gone and a low hot breeze hits your skin however briefly.>End
Ending and other shit, tomorrow. Posting at 6 cst
