This quest takes place in the DC Universe with characteristics mainly pulled from the animated TV series and films. You are Battery, a teen who had once suffered a brutal death at the hands of The Joker. However, he was resurrected as an android by his father and given extraordinary powers!

Before you is a woman, one you recognize, laughing.Then crying.Then smiling.Then screaming in anger.You look through the glass and watch as her nude body twitches with each shift of something... Something above her...Your eyes slowly move upward, and as they reach the hellish sight you can hear Blackfire gasp as she witnesses the same horror.The woman in the jade fluid is Madame Rouge, at least, her face is Madame Rouge's. It's hard to be certain, seeing how your mind is having trouble comprehending that the woman you just killed is now on display in front of you, but that's not the part that chills you to your very core.The top half of her skull has been perfectly carved away, exposing her brain so a trio of thin prods can extend from top seal of the container and insert themselves into the neural flesh, stimulating it.Each movement and thrust of the prods entice another emotion from Rouge, and they keep looping with subtle differences in expressions every time.Yet, this is not what leaves you frozen with shock.What silences the rage and desire to fight within both you and Blackfire is the fact that Rouge is not alone.Above her, next to her, behind her... There are rows and rows of people cocooned in these glowing cases, all cycling through emotions as Rouge and echoing their muffled voices throughout the never ending halls.You both step away from Rouge's container and look around, your eyes observing the hundreds of thousands of people imprisoned here. It's more than the school's population, which means that this...“This has always been here. There's too many people here to just be the school...” You announce to Blackfire in a hushed tone, feeling her rigidly tremble against you. “This is... This is messed up!” She spits through gritting teeth.“I may be an evil bitch but... What the hell is all this?!”“I'll tell you, Tamaranean.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiLJoBTZKX0The voice comes from further down the hall, and you both jerk your heads towards its direction in preparation for an attack.What comes are the slow steps of Rena's boots against the black floor, her skeletal armor illuminated by the containers surrounding you all.“This is the human race...” She explains coolly, removing her helmet to show a kind smile aimed right at you.“Given new life... The same way that you were.”Her smile only puts a lump in your throat.[Votes in next post!]

I hope you guys are prepared for lots of words! Posts soon!
>>2242480>>2242478>C>D>E“Who the hell are you really?! Do you have some AI in your head telling you to do all this like I do?!” “Master, I don't think it's wise to mention-”Your belt is hushed as your sister unit's head perks up to speak.“Master?” She asks, looking intrigued as a chill is sent down your spine at this shocking revelation:She can hear Majin.“Interesting word for a Father Box to use, especially one that belonged to Darkseid himself... Perhaps it doesn't recall?” She ponders aloud, tapping her chin.“Darkseid?!” Your belt and Blackfire utter with fear, surprising you with their knowledge of this individual.“... Who?” You ask, your focus switching between Blackfire and your belt.“Babe, Darkseid makes your psycho sister look like a puppy... He was the embodiment of suffering across the galaxy and the end of many planets... I... Even I've had nightmares about him and what he could do to a place like Tamaran.” Blackfire informs you, her voice a mixture of fear and respect.“I belonged to the ruler of Apokolips... I can't remember, but it feels...” Majin just rambles to himself, clearly handling the truth hardest compared to you and Blackfire.“Perhaps I should explain where our... Components came from.” Your sister interrupts, speaking calmly.“Years ago, the tyrant Darkseid had merged with the super intelligence known as Braniac in an ill fated resurrection brought on by Lex Luthor. The merged life form was far too powerful for even the combined efforts of Lexcorp and the Justice League to overcome, and Earth would have surely fallen... If not for Luthor's trojan.”“Trojan?” You ask, the question summoning another smile to appear across your sister's lips.“The Anti-life equation.” Your sister begins to answer.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPTC9t7yQI4“Luthor is vain and overly ambitious, but he is no fool. There was a reason Brainiac deemed him appropriate to merge with him prior to Darkseid, and that was never made more clear than Luthor's gamble of offering the Anti-Life Equation to Darkseid in person. What he had actually constructed was a physical malware to corrupt the synthesis between Darkseid and Brainiac. He bet on Darkseid's failure to recognize the malicious construct... And he was correct.”[Continued in next post]
>>2242633Fucking luthor. Also cool our Belt was Darkseid fatherbox
>>2242633“What exists now of Braniac Darkseid is in us both, Reno.” She further explains, placing a gentle hand over her heart.“You were built with the more physical components of Darkseid, while the consciousness of Brainiac has now become nothing more than algorithms inside my mind.”“Are you saying that Darkseid is dead?!” Majin pipes up.“It doesn't matter. We are what remains of both.” She dismissively answers.“I don't understand... What... What does any of this have to do with me?!” You continue to question her, hoping to make sense of all this.“I don't know if it's possible for you to remember... I'm sure Batman has spoken to you about your death, but did he mention what came after?” She asks, taking your silence to the question as a no. “Your mother and father were a dynamic duo in the biological and mechanical engineering fields. Prior to your death they had been working on controversial methods to replicate human life, or cloning in other words. However, this process was far more advanced as it replicated the mind as well, meaning that so long as a brain was intact it could be recreated and preserved in another vessel.”She strolls over to one of the many containers surrounding you three, placing a hand gently on the glass as she watches a replicated HIVE student cycle through frightened expressions. Her face turns sad as she watches the child inside, her gaze like that of a mother noticing their child is having a bad dream.“Your... Our mother wished to make humanity immortal with her research, forever preserving our families and legacies... While our father, on the otherhand, was more interested in selling this process to military contractors, boasting that he could create super soldiers that would store centuries of combat experience to create an invincible army. Neither got what they wanted. Our mother was afflicted by cancer, and all money that was reserved for furthering their research was desperately put into cancer treatment that ultimately failed. After that, you died and sent our father down a hole of despair that he could never hope to climb out of... That is, until Luthor came.”[Further continued in the next post.]
>>2242732Don't stop i'm loving this exposition.Also hopefully the bat family is using this time to do something
>>2242732>Can superscience a clone army from the remains of a god fused with an AI.>Cancer is uncurable.This definitely is comic books alright.
>>2242742Least its better than Dr Strange not being able to treat a gunshot wound
>>2242633>both darkseid and brainiac are dead>we are both of themWell shit.
>>2242788You know what that means? Apokolips must be in a real civil war to see who is it's ruler.
>>2242796>We have a claim to ApokolipsDear god
>>2242809Let's hire Lobo to take out Desadd.
>>2242809This is gonna be a kinda Austria-Hungary thing is we marry and get Kom crowned.
>>2242824Then we certainly must do this.Lets find Sinestro's daughter and get with her too. Just add another kingdom to the list.
>>2242732“He had heard about our parent's research and made a proposal: Assist him with reconstructing Brainiac's consciousness in a preservable mind, and he would provide whatever tools our father would need in recreating us.”She steps away from the container, facing you with eyes filled with contempt.“He was too weak to turn it away, and thus I was created after his late wife with Brainiac's consciousness coexisting with my own. Upon my birth I was met with what was known as Cadmus; the remains of a shadow organization assisting Luthor under the guise of protecting mankind from meta-human threats. As my functionality grew, Brainiac and I realized that the humans among us all had knives at each others backs. As I worked with your father to help create you, I learned that he planned on destroying the joint effort and fleeing with us both, damning our future as fugitives. Cadmus on the other hand was planning on having Luthor and our father exposed for their research and imprisoned, only to leave us to be reprogrammed as docile weapons. Luthor... Luthor just wanted me. His mind was still overtaken by the bliss of merging with Brainiac, and he saw my creation as the bridge to meet with that bliss once again.”It's quiet for a moment, the flooding information still being processed as Blackfire strangely tries to keep the flow of the conversation going.“That's... A lot of dirt to dig up.” She mentions, having a worse time understanding all this than you do.“It's easy when you share thought with a Kryptonian super computer.” She answers, her face unchanging.”“As this all happened, Brainiac and I communicated. We exchanged information that would take two humans centuries to verbally communicate until we came upon a question that intrigued us both; why is our world like this? Why is it doomed to eternity of destructive gods and manipulative men? Is the incurable cancer the species of mankind rather than the named disease itself? Why? It was all so tiresome... Lurking doom to plague the galaxy with no end in sight, either originating from beyond the stars or a lab just like this one...”Her eyes shut for a moment as she takes a deep breath, looking back up to you.[Still more to come, but votes will most likely be in the next post! WORDSWORDSWORDSWORDS!]
>>2242809Then once we marry Blackfire we get a claim over Tamarean.Time to create our intergalatic empire!
>>2242839No voting this thread? That's alright.
>why is our world like this? Why is it doomed to eternity of destructive gods and manipulative men? Is the incurable cancer the species of mankind rather than the named disease itself? Why? Because nerds love their leotard girls. Also comic industry needs to make conflict
>>2242838Every Empire in space's face when some rando who's barely a supervillain from earth has claims to three major empires
>>2242883But would we fail?
>>2242888Probably not actually with the psychopath-princess in love with us and the power of brainseid in us
>>2242888We have Blackfire with us and if we keep a steady contract we can Lobo out of our backs.Heck i almost want to let Lobo capture Blackfire and take us so once he concludes his business we can go and bust her out. It would also allow us to deal with the people that enslaved her.Nobody enslave our waifu.
>>2242906Don't forget the red sun engine.>>2242906Our only challengers would be the new gods and maybe the citadel
>>2242913>Nobody enslave our waifuexcept our dick
>>2242920Is it enslavement if she wants it?
>>2242913Thing is if we let Lobo take blackfire back to whoever paid him, we might be able to enslave them
>>2242839“We wanted an answer, and we found it. What started all of this... Was Superman, or rather, a Superman. We are not alone, even beyond space. There are universes just like this one where meta-humans and heartless men doom their planets till their eventual demise. The ones I speak of were known as The Justice Lords, who imprisoned humanity on an Earth ruled by super humans. Beyond them it didn't get much better. No matter the circumstances, they mere existence of these meta-humans caused a set of crisis to be inflicted on those Earths, most of which didn't survive. Brainiac and I established that there was a law of 3 crisis per meta-human inhabited Earths, but... We encountered something spectacular. In our observations of infinite Earths, we uncovered one not afflicted by supermen: an Earth Prime.”She holds a hand out in front of her, looking at her palm dreamily.“Imagine an Earth that doesn't have to fear men like Luthor or Darkseid. An imperfect world, but one where millions aren't killed annually by super humans, and despite their hardships they can come together in a time of chaos and overcome it with their own will. A world without capes... That is the perfect world, and it exists.”“Let me guess... You want this Earth to be like the prime one.” You say, your words cold as you're beginning to process fully as to why she's doing this.“I want an Earth where a boy can go to a museum and not have his throat cut open by a maniacal clown who only exists because of a deranged man in a bat suit.”Her words sting, as if ripping a band aid right off your soul.“We're victims, but we're also part of a disease. What Brainiac and I discovered is that it takes just one Superman to create a Doomsday. One Batman to make a Joker. One god to doom a planet. This suit I'm wearing and what I've done to those here...”She clenches her open palm tightly.“... Is merely proof of concept. I know I've hurt you, but you need to understand why I'm doing this. If it wasn't me, it would just be someone else, Reno. I take no joy or pride in my bloodshed... I just want you to open your eyes and understand that I'm trying to protect mankind's future. By deconstructing and replicating human life like this, I will save humanity... Which is why I need your help. You have the power inside you to help fight off those who would stop us!”You stand there in complete silence, and you can feel Blackfire's eyes on you as you process all of this. You choke out your next words, but you do manage to pierce the silence with them.“If we're the same... We're family. I'm not going to act like a saint and say my hands aren't stained with blood, but we both can stop right here and now. We don't have to kill each other, we can just talk. Please, give it a chance to set things right.” “I AM setting things right, Reno.” She dismissively answers.[Votes in next post! promise!]
>>2242949A: “By killing all these people?! How does that make you any better than what you've already witnessed?!”B: “No, you're not. I don't know if that Brainiac thing is still speaking to you, but he's given you the wrong idea. This isn't the way to save humanity!”C: “You don't have to do any of this... Not for these people, and not for me. Whatever happens to the people here... To us... We can fight it together!”D: “You think I give a damn about any of this?! Sis, I'm just as bad as Luthor! All I want to do is raise hell and this galaxy isn't big enough for me to do it! Screw humanity, what has it done for us lately?!”E: “Well, that's as much effort as I'm ever going to put into being a good guy.

>>2242954>The ends do not justify the means, the djinni cannot be put back into a bottle, the energy used to shift one state of matter into another is lost.

>>2242967>>2242971>>2242975>>2242980>>2243006I shall combine these!
>>2242954>FYou thrust your arm forward and point straight ahead at her.“The ends do not justify the means, the djinni cannot be put back into a bottle, the energy used to shift one state of matter into another is lost. You cannot fix the world by trying to wind it backwards. You cannot turn back the clock. hell you even told me what happened when Flash tried, disaster. All you're doing is compounding the issue, making it worse. You ARE the crisis!” “I'm aware of what I am.” She answers, not even remotely phased by your verbal barrage.“If you do, then why go through with it?!” Blackfire chimes in, her eye starting to glow with anger.“Because I'm the only crisis this Earth will have. I'm not rewinding time, I'm restarting it. My work will take centuries, but that time is nothing to lifeforms like us.” She tells you.“By the end, humanity will begin anew with no knowledge or records of what happened to them prior. It will be an invisible extinction wiped from their new minds.”“Wiping their minds?! Is that what you did to me?! Is that why I don't remember any of this?!” You ask, swinging your arm aside as you demand answers.“I would never do such a thing to you!” She speaks as if offended by your accusations.“No, your memory was corrupted differently... Since I was constructed with what remained of Brainiac, I assisted our father in constructing you with what remained of Darkseid. While I was created a vast intellect, you gifted with more... Physical prowess. Mechanisms within you are so strong Cadmus was able to authorize the creation of The Red Sun Engine within you. With our combined intellect and strength, Superman would be no match for us should he turn on the human race. But as I uncovered more about the other universes, I decided that we should be the ones to strike first. The escape was... Sloppy. My plans were discovered and thus the exodus from Luthor's labs had to be done prematurely. I had to do an emergency ejection from your stasis tank which interrupted your memory and thought functions. In short, you were a rampaging beast incoherently tearing your way out of the facility and eventually joining a biker gang... I wish I had found you sooner, because you had apparently been eating garbage for quite some time.”“Oh shut it.” You mutter.“However, thanks to the gullible Brother Blood, I fooled him into believing he'd be a part of the next wave of human life. He found you on the street, brought you in, and sent you away to Star Labs where we would eventually meet.” She reveals, smiling as if she's taking pride in her trickery.“The simple way to put this Reno is that there are things out there that could halt my plans. Things that I can't overcome without your strength. So please... Open your eyes and see what I see. See the future of this planet.”[Votes in following post!]

>>2243181.........and you call ME the stupid one. Brainiac has you so snowed that you don’t even see what you’re doing. You’re not saving humanity you’re destroying it in a vain effort to ease your own fears and pain. For all that intellect you have no more wisdom than a child. If you have to systematically and totally ammhilate something to “save” it, it’s not saved. Just replaced. One minus one plus one is still one, but the original one is still dead. I see no reason for to follow your flawed logic Rena. It’s better to live and love and grow, than regulated and regimented like cattle, forever afraid of what is outside in the wild.

GUYS i just had a idea. If our belt is the manifestation of our father box would Rena's belt be a manifestation of brainiac? We need to beat our sister and take that belt from her by force if needed.

>>2243175>A“No,”Your body relaxes, and soon you find your hands reaching up to your helmet.“What are you doing?!” Blackfire interrogates you under a hushed tone, unable to comprehend why you would lower your guard in a moment like this.The helmet comes off, and your face is met with one that resembles your own.She looks to you with love in her eyes, the sight of a sibling's face comforting her despite the situation. “I need you to see what I see. I see a scared girl who doesn't want to see a family member get hurt again.” She looks away from you, her expression showing shame as she speaks.“I don't want anyone to lose a family member like that again.” She answers.“Even if it's from you?” You add.She jerks her head back to you, clenching her teeth as your words infest her ears.“Yes! You think I enjoy this?! That these people stuck in these tubes are trophies for me to look upon proudly?!” She snaps, her eyelids starting to twitch.“It's all pain! When I end someone's life, when I cut them down and take away their future... It hurts! But I have to do this...”“Why? No one is telling you to do this. I know because I would probably hear them if they were, just like you can hear the father box.” You reveal, inciting a nod from her that confirms what you're saying.“I have to do this. If I don't condemn myself with these acts... Someone who enjoys it will do it anyway! That's how this Earth will be if I don't do this! It's either once crisis with a new future, or three with the same fate the others have suffered.”A: “Not with us. We can fight them together. You probably think it's too late to turn around and stop this, but it isn't. Screw everyone in these tubes and anyone that wants to hunt you down, if you come with me and Blackfire now we'll leave what happened here in the dust and build a new future without this mess.”B: “You don't get it. If I don't stop you, someone else will. Hell, I'll have Blackfire burn me to a crisp right now if it means ruining your plans. Either we both die, or no one dies. If you really cared for me, you'll know what to do.”C: “What about Brainiac? Is this his plan or yours? You don't have to listen to him, sis. You think I listen to my Father Box all the time?

>>2243352>So instead of I dunno stopping them you make things worse? That's backwards Rena. It's Brainiac's love of genocide and control in full display. Besides you're not saving anyone, you're just making the next crises the one certain to wipe us all out.

>>2243352>AYou show a kind smile and walk over to your sister unit.She looks nervous for a second, but you dash whatever fears she might have away by pulling her into a warm hug.“Not with us. We can fight them together. You probably think it's too late to turn around and stop this, but it isn't. Screw everyone in these tubes and anyone that wants to hunt you down, if you come with me and Blackfire now we'll leave what happened here in the dust and build a new future without this mess.” She trembles for a moment, then puts her arms around you to complete the tight embrace.“I don't know... I've already done so much. With Brainia-”“Hey, that's enough. Toss Brainiac in the recycling bin and move on. Hell, wipe your memory clean if you want. You can do that, right?” You ask.“I... I can. Brainiac is nothing more than a background task seeing how much we had agreed to this, but... Erasing what's left of him without him knowing why seems cruel.” She meekly speaks, stepping away from the hug.“What? Bitch you're surrounded by dead guys and you cut my eye out, and you think THAT'S too cruel?!” Blackfire shouts, marching over and shoving you aside to get in your sister's face.“You have the next 48 hours to use whatever genetic crap you have in that psychotic brain of yours to make me a new eye, or I'm burning you to a crisp!” She barks, her single eye nearly bursting with fire.“HEY! Fresh start!” You shout back at your alien lover, inciting another growl of anger from her.“YOU CAN'T JUST SAY THAT WHILE WE'RE STILL SURROUNDDED BY THESE CREEPY REPLICAS!” She roars back at you, grinding her teeth in anger.“... He's gone.”You both stop to look at your sister, who's quietly wiping her eyes as she stands between you both.“I... I can't forgive myself for what I've done, really. Let's just go so I can erase it from my memory.”She sniffles, but to your surprise Blackfire clasps a hand on her shoulder.“What's with the water works? You know I was scared shitless of you a minute ago.” She says, showing a small smile.“Look, this is totally insane, but... Whatever. You're my man's family so I guess I have to go with it. So, whatever... Fresh start.”“This is sickening.” Your belt mutters.“We were all set to clash blades, and now this foolishness? Darkseid is rolling in his grave... But you are the master.”As he concedes, your sister starts to beam between you both, her happy face despite these dark and strange times starts to fill you with hope that things might be fine after all. You remember hating endings where the power of friendship brings everyone together in all those shows you watched, but tonight you'll let it slide. It's time to look to the future and leave this madness behind. Fresh start.[Roll D100, DC95]

All that's left is you, Blackfire, and the dying sister unit beginning to burn between you both.Both you and your alien lover's eyes are wide with horror as you turn to see who has done this to you both.You stammer out a gasp when you see it's your father, his right hand glowing hot from his surprise attack. He slowly stomps closer from the opposite end of the hall, the only sound coming from him being his footsteps.A: “Why...?”B: “She... She surrendered...”C: “How... How did you find this place?

Man I liked this quest way better when we were just doing fun villainous stuff instead of this end of the world shit. It's just like how comic book "event' plotlines are way worse than the standalone stories.
>>2243639>HenshinAll the anger, despair and hatred built up in you rises and escapes from your throat as belt out a thunderous battle cry over your dead sister.The harsh, guttural sound from your vocal chords shift, and you soon find yourself speaking in unison with Majin as you prepare to fight!“HENSHIN!”In a crimson flash your suit becomes powered up with erratic jolts of scarlet lighting, and without even thinking you're bolt blinking to your father and unleashing a flurry of swipes and punches!Sparks fly off your father's steel arms as he effortlessly protects himself against everything strike you send his way, his eyes glowing brightly as blow clangs loudly against his steel frame.You're snarling and snapping at him like a rabid dog, your claws and blades desperate to rip this man to pieces for what he's done! You do everything you can to make him crumple from your might, weaving and ducking to deliver savage slashes to his guarding arms in hopes of severing them!It's all for naught, as your father's body is stronger than anything you've tried to rend! Growing tired of your onslaught, he leans to the right of one of your thrusts and clamps a iron hand down on your wrist!You're stunned for a moment, but the shock turns to agony as he pours strength into the grip and nearly snaps your wrist in two!Just when you think he's about to rip your hand off, he whirls you around and whips his arm towards the never ending wall of stasis tubes, hurling you into them!You're sent flying through container after container, the force of your father's throw combined with the sharp edges of your gloves and boots tear through countless bodies before you finally tumbling across the ground in a torrent of gore and fluid!Drenched in blood and whatever liquid was in those containers, you strain to push yourself off the flooded ground, only to be greeted by your father already bolt blinking to you.His right arm shoots downward and snatches you up by one of your helmet's horns, holding you up as his free hand wraps around your face!You try to kick at him and shake your head free, but he's built incredibly strong! Every ounce of strength you put into your kicks bounces off him like he's nothing!The hand gripping your head starts to shine with yellow energy, and you're helplessly held there he begins to speak.“This was always the end, Reno. Your Father Box was never supposed to wake, but it's all the more reason to wipe this Earth clean of my mistakes. Forgive me.”[Roll D100]

Is it wrong that the only thing i can think of is that at least we can use Sis corpse to upgrade ourselfs?Or at least use dad corpse he definetly deserves to be butchered.
>>2243985I don't want to risk taking Brainiac into ourselves
>>2243986Dude she deleated him. She just said it
>>2243992I wish I trusted him to really be gone.Also ew, cannibalizing our sister's corpse just after we reconnected.
Also after this bullshit, i will never vote to do a good thing ever again.
>>2243993True it's terrible. We can at least do that with our dad's corpse then?
>>2243927“Get your disgusting hands off of him.”A sphere of violet fire smashes into the side of your father's face, the blast from the ball of energy blowing you both aside!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MU59hrxBIlwYou roll across the floor away from your father as he lands on his feet, digging his heels into the floor as he slides across the soaked ground in a defensive stance.You both look to the alien warrior that saved you, her body float just above the ground as her visible eye stares down your father.He simply pats the side of his hat to put out the purple flame that caught onto the cloth material.“Go away, girl. None of this concerns you. Save your life by fleeing back to stars, or I will erase you as well.”Blackfire just keeps a look of contempt as she looks down at him, seemingly calm as there's yet to be any fire rising from her eye.“Do you know what powers a Tamaranean's abilities, Metalhead? Emotions.” She begins, her speech oozing with venom.“To fly, we think of what make us happy. I think of Reno, who I'm ashamed to call your son, and the thought of him fills me with so much joy that I could fly around this pathetic planet in seconds if I felt like it.”As she finishes the first part of her speech, embers fall from her eyes like tears just before she speaks again.“To make my starbolts, I use anger. For a while I used the hatred for my sister to fuel them, and at the time I felt there was nothing greater than that. I feel a lot stronger now that I've met you.”Her eye ignites, and for a moment the only sound the fills the area is her crackling fire and the dripping liquid flooding the room.Your father attempts to speak, but nothing is heard over Blackfire's final word:“Burn.”[Roll D100+5.

>>2244035Doubles give a +10 from now on maybe? Nothing gamebreaking?
>>2244035Honestly it feels like this happens every thread. Maybe in the future we can have some way of increasing the bonuses on rolls because these d100s are brutal
>>2244035No fuck that.Harder daddy, harder!
>>2244043>>2244047I mean from the perspective of the same roll back to back.I suppose it would be silly to be merciful over that though. You shouldn't be terribly worried anyway, it's not a colossal failure!
>>2244035Mercy would be nice. We sure aren't gonna get any from the dice gods.
>>2244054and a 90 on a 95 was a colossal failure?

>>2244077>the outlier should have been close enough.Nah, it was a surprise attack that we needed to go above and beyond to counter. 90 wasn't good enough. Only 2 failures this thread from bad luck, the other 2 from high DCs.
>>2244070I didn't say that! I consider colossal failures to be 1s!That was a foolish action made by a horrible parent, not a failure.

You will not like it.”[TO BE CONTINUED]
That's all for this week! We've reached the "final boss" of this part of the story, and I just want to thank you all for always sticking by me and the weekly threads! I'm happy that I'm still able to entertain you after thirty threads!As always, I'll be around for questions and bullying!
>>2244149You made errors
>>2244149Being Reno is suffering, his girlfriend lost an eye, your sister killed your best friend, your sister finally wanted to do good then got murdered by your father and your father is currently insane. Also if we are darkseid can we theoretically control the anti-life equation?
>>2244181There are more important things in life than anti life.Like punching and alien sex!
>>2244185Would Cheshire or Barbara been able to damage robo pops
>>2244188I would say so, especially now that his glowing weak point has been exposed!
The suffering will never end.
>>2244199All things end. Suffering just ends in happiness or death!
>>2244202>Implying the ride never endsYou know what, fuck this planet. If Reno survives then I'm all for getting off this rock and going planet conauering with blackfire. First Tamaran, then a few other worlds, then amass an army big enough to push our claim on Apokalypse.
>>2244295I say we let Lobo take blackfire and us to whatever planet she pissed off, crush them then push BF's claim on tameran
>>2244359>>2244295agreed i have had enough of this shit ball

>>2242838Problem is, will blackfire we okay with us having a harem or will she blow our head off in jealousy
>>2248040She would kill us for the insult
>>2248040>blackfire>haremKek, anon that's just asking to get your dick blown off. At most she's somewhat more open to a third person joining in sometimes, and even that'd be a slippery ass slope
>>2249662>At most she's somewhat more open to a third person joining in sometimes, and even that'd be a slippery ass slope>"Sure Reno, we can totally bring that friend of yours into our bed, she's your childhood friend, and what was that thing Control Freak always said? Childhood Friends never win? I think we should change that a bit.">"Sweet. Killer. You're the best babe.">Later. >Batgirl immediately regrets this as she finds herself sitting in the sideline as Blackfire keeps Reno's attention solely on herself. Blackfire would lock eyes with her while leglocking Reno during his tamarian pussy smash as if to say "This is my man, you can watch, but bitch you'll never have this.">Batgirl would try to leave only for Blackfire to tell her to sit her ass back down they aren't finished with this "threesome" yet.
>>2249697>NTRThat's some high-magnitude faggotry.
>>2249899You don't even know what NTR even is and you're calling me a faggot.Barbara isn't even in a relationship with Reno for this to be anything but forced voyeurism or kinky exhibitionism on part of Blackfire.For this to be Netorare batgirl would be the one getting fucked.Blackfire is possessive and wouldn't share. The joke here is that even if Reno proposed a threesome, she'd still be the only one doing the fucking with him while smugly staking claim in front of the girl that dared think she had a chance
>>2248040The solution is to make it Blackfire's harem.
>>2249697"Can I at least touch myself while you guys-""NO!"
>>2249697I'm oddly on board with this
