This quest takes place in the DC Universe with characteristics mainly pulled from the animated TV series and films. You are Reno, AKA Black Rider Battery! After a tremendous journey from boy to super-powered fighter, you've started taking the first steps to becoming a established name in the world of metahumans! It is now 5 years in the future, where you've raised a tower in your name! The 54-story building not only houses many of your Tamaranean and Oni subordinates, but the underground metahuman fight club known as The Metabrawl! Now, you're waking up after a long night of fighting, remembering that you have to face the promise you made to your daughter!Rules: -10 Minute voting period after each post, I will now specify how many votes are allowed per 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 100/1QM Twitterhttps://twitter.com/MachPunchQMArchivehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=DC+Quest+MachPunchMC Powers and Inventoryhttps://pastebin.com/v8wjir7d
“Okay, first off, how did you get in my house?” You ask the pale bounty hunter kicking back on your sofa.“I've been here for a while now, your highness” He answers, a mocking tone accompanying your title.“Decided to make myself at home. Which reminds me, don't use the can for the next 24 hours. I did a number on that fraggin' porcelain throne of yours. Heheheh!”“Daddy, what does fragg mean?” Rena asks, looking up at you curiously.“Uhhh... I think it's a bad word. Don't say it just in case.” You answer, inciting a small gasp from your daughter as she slaps both of her tiny hands over her mouth.Squinting your eyes at Lobo, your head starts to fill with questions. Why is he here? If he's not here for you, then what? Did he break anything coming in? You need answers.A: … Or not. Lobo is a simple man. You're probably a target again, so you might as well get Rena out of the room so you can get the jump on this space biker!B: “What do you want, Lobo?”C: “Did you... Did you go through anything? Was anything else destroyed aside from my bathroom?”D: “Look, whatever you're here for, can it wait? I still have some important business I need to take care of.”E: “How long have you been here anyway? I'm surprised Superman didn't notice you.”[2 votes permitted]

>>2452632>C>EYour brow furrows.“Did you... Did you go through anything? Was anything else destroyed aside from my bathroom?”He just belches, its volume causing your daughter to giggle.“Let's just say you're out of drinks.”Seriously? He drank all your booze?! Blackfire might kill you for that, let alone allowing Lobo in here to begin with. Speaking of...“How long have you been here anyway? I'm surprised Superman didn't notice you.”“That Kryptonian geek was here? I thought I smelled something odd, but I coulda' sworn it was all the Tamaraneans in this joint...” Lobo thinks to himself, a coarse gloved hand rubbing his grizzly chin.“Anyway, I told you it's been a while. In fact I'm kinda bored, so can we go along and get this job started or what?”“Job? What're you talking about?” You interrogate, setting your daughter down, only to have her continue to gaze up at you.“Your old lady didn't tell you? Me an' her had a mutual interest.”Your wife is involved?! She's willingly working with someone who tried to kill her before?! What the hell is going on?!Your eyes go wide in your intense gaze, trying to make sense of what you're hearing.However, Lobo seems impatient. He tosses the bug aside on the couch and stands, making his way past you and your daughter.“Seriously, enough chit-chat. It's time to frag!” He shouts excitedly, cracking his massive knuckles.A: “Woah woah woah woah, hold on. What does Blackfire have to do with any of this? What does she expect you to do?”B: Just go along with him. No telling what a bored and impatient Lobo will do if he doesn't get some action soon.[Choose one.]
>>2452736A: “Woah woah woah woah, hold on. What does Blackfire have to do with any of this? What does she expect you to do?”Ooooh this is gonna end badly.

>>2452736>AWhile going along."Amazo! Look after Rena!"

Also what kind of freak would need us AND Lobo to deal with?
>>2452795Backing because having a super weapon child sit our kid amuses me to no end.Though im more for B.
>>2452736>A“Woah woah woah woah, hold on. What does Blackfire have to do with any of this? What does she expect you to do?” Lobo grumbles, reaching for his leg holster and pulling a rugged blaster from it.He cocks it, the loud cycling of plasma shells piercing you and your daughter's ears.“She wants US to squash some bugs for her, what else do you need?! Now tuck that tike in or something, or I'm redecorate your place!”You and Rena both flinch from his sudden barking, the small child clutching onto the fabric of your pants in fear.“A-Alright, Christ...” You answer, kneeling down to pat your frightened daughter's head.“Sorry, sweetie. Your Uncle Lobo can be a bit... Extreme. Why don't you go play with Amazo until I get back?”“... Okay.” She softly answers as you give her a kiss on the head.You give one last wave to your daughter as you and Lobo head out of your home, the biker already whistling for his bike once he's out the door.“So... Squashing bugs?” You ask again.Lobo looks back at you with a twisted grin, his red eyes wide with excitement as his bike roars across the sky as it comes for him.“That's right. There's gonna be an invasion, and you're gonna be the hero that frags these Reach pests to hell!”Reach? That's the same thing Blue Beetle's scarab was a part of, right?“How do you know there's going to be an invasion? You've lost me, main man.”“It's some political crap, tryna' to make you barbarians look classy or somethin'. Look, I ain't here for the details, I just got cut a deal to help out in exchange for collecting a bounty on the Ambassador they got.”He answers this as his battle-ready chopper growls at his side, the 'Bo already mounting it and revving the engine.“So, is the warrior king of Tamaran gonna waste some heads, or is he gonna hang back and tell bedtime stories to his widdle giwrl?” He taunts.A: “Please, you'll be lucky if I leave anyone left for you to shoot at. Let's go!”B: “I'll boom tube to your location, let me hang back and make some calls first...”C: “Look, if you need a Tamaranean for this job, I can just let my royal guard accompany you. They just have to look good for whatever this is, right?”[Choose one]
>>2452920>B: “I'll boom tube to your location, let me hang back and make some calls first...”
>>2452920>B: “I'll boom tube to your location, let me hang back and make some calls first...”We should tell Dick. He's a prick, but he might be able to do something with BB.
>>2452920Bitch implying that not looking after your kid right is unmanly, you probably have a girly fit at the sight of a diaper.B: “I'll boom tube to your location, let me hang back and make some calls first...”Tell the titans whats going on, and ask robin or barbra to come babysit propperly, not that i dont trust amazo, but hes probably going to do what ever our daughter says.
>>2452920B: “I'll boom tube to your location, let me hang back and make some calls first...”Send a call to star she can tell dick all about this. Yo star calling in. So reach is invading or something. Tell boy blunter about it. cya
>>2452920>A: “Please, you'll be lucky if I leave anyone left for you to shoot at. Let's go!”
>>2452920>D"I'll have you know my little girl tells bedtime stories to me."
>>2452984Lobo is just jeaulou because he's a orphan.
>>2452736. . . Crap. She assumed we'd fail to deliver Superman for our little girl and hired Lobo to kick our ass.
>>2452920>B“I'll boom tube to your location, let me hang back and make some calls first...”Lobo grumbles something "going soft" before flying off, his bike howling over Gotham as he leaves the city."Let's see..." You mumble.A: Call Blackfire, get a more clear understanding about what this is all about.B: Call Starfire, see if she can let Dick know about the invasion.C: See if you can get in touch with Lain. She's a walking encyclopedia when it comes to meta-human stuff, but maybe she knows a thing or two about The Reach.[Choose one]
>>2452939>but hes probably going to do what ever our daughter says.kek>we get back home only to find Blackfire waiting besides Amazo who's buried under a mountain of ice cream buckets and Rena passed out on the couch surrounded by a sea of soda bottles.
>>2452996>B: Call Starfire, see if she can let Dick know about the invasion.
>>2452996>A: Call Blackfire, get a more clear understanding about what this is all about.
>>2453011Then there is no point in taking the credit anon. Don't be silly.>>2452996>A
>>2452920>B: “I'll boom tube to your location, let me hang back and make some calls first...”"And the next time you imply reading bedtime stories to my daughter is unmanly i'll throw you into the sun, and then drink all of your booze and give your bike away to charity."
>>2452996B: Call Starfire, see if she can let Dick know about the invasion.
>>2452996>B: Call Starfire, see if she can let Dick know about the invasion."I'd recommend sending Beatle Boy somewhere safe.""IT'S BLUE BEETLE!"'That's what I said, right?"
>>2453109When he manages to win a fight, we'll remember his name..... maybe.
>>2453125When did we became Lobo?
So who wants to bet that the Reach invasion is Luthor's fault?
>>2453156Lobo rubs off on you, the more time you spend with him the more Lobo-like you become.
>>2453156Nah, were more like lobos more sane brother.
>>2453180Bolo? Obol? Steve?
>>2453185Nah just Battery. I still want to use the full power of battery tower to power us up for a final fight. Maybe when the earth is invaded by our evil counterpart.
>>2452996>A“Majin, wake up. I need you to connect me to Blackfire's... Whatever Tamaranean phones are called.”“Yes, Master.”You wait a few moments, small crackles of electric currents fill your ears as Majin begins the menial task of contacting your wife beyond the stars.Eventually, her voice rings out in your head, as if you were speaking through telepathy.“Hello?”“Hey babe, it's me. What's the deal with this Reach business.” You ask, getting a small groan from your wife.“God I totally forgot...” She grumbles, something shuffling in the background of her communication.“Okay so The Light is totally down to have me for their group and whatever, BUT apparently they were going to plan something with another race... It's all stuff like we've been doing, but I guess more mainstream? I mean these guys had plans for a soda to-”“Honey, getting a bit off topic.” You inform her, trying to sound nice so she doesn't start to bicker.“Right, right, anyway... Since we already did everything they were going to do, The Light needs to deny any potential involvement with them or whatever, so you need to help Lobo get rid of them or whatever. Having you “save the Earth” from them is just a bonus. These people will be eating out of our hands once they see you standing over a burning Reach ship.” She explains.“Anything else? I'm kind of in the middle of something.”A: “Nope, thanks for elaborating. See you when you get home!”B: “So I'm just supposed to waste these guys because Luthor and his secret club? I feel like I'm cleaning up after them.”C: “But why is Lobo involved? Did your forget he was hunting you a few years back?”D: “Whatcha doing? You on another conquest?”E: [Write in][One vote permitted.]
>>2453264>A: “Nope, thanks for elaborating. See you when you get home!”
>>2453264B: “So I'm just supposed to waste these guys because Luthor and his secret club? I feel like I'm cleaning up after them. I mean Fuck Luthor”
>>2453264>A“Nope, thanks for elaborating. See you when you get home!” “Bye~”Huh, you're all good on the details now. Still, you wonder what the Reach will be like in an actual fight. Are they all going to be like Blue Beetle? This could be fun or a total nightmare...“Majin, can you boom me over to Lobo's current location?” You ask your belt.“I suppose... I do find it strange that he always finds a way to butt into our lives.” Majin muses as a boom tube begins to ripple in the air before you, a low hum coming from the cycling rings of light.“Hey, if he's batting for our team I ain't complaining.” You remark with a smile as you step through the tunnel of light, carefully stepping through so you don't walk too far out of the exit only to find yourself hundreds of feet above ground.Sure enough, you're standing at the edge of your tube high above the ground, currently what looks like a canyon spanning far and wide under the setting sun.“Over here!”You look to your right to see Lobo sitting back on his bike, pointing ahead of you both to a barren valley between walls of red stone.“Ship's gonna emerge there! They're sending in the big one before they start stashing warships all over the friggin' place, but we're gonna blow 'em all to high fraggin' hell before that happens!”You give him a thumbs up, keeping your eyes focused on the valley.“I'll swing around and let you jump on once they show up! Get ready to rock, Battery! WOOOOH!” Lobo howls, his tongue lashing out as he bangs his head to the revving of his bike. He had an interesting way of psyching himself up.Suddenly there's a sharp, electrified pop as a line of golden light appears, illuminating the valley as it seems to tear through reality.You place your hand on your belts switch just as the nose of the ship seems to pierce through the bright veil of their portal, your grip tight as you utter the words that summon your power.“Henshin.”[Roll D100]

>>2453468https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxGRrCP4jeEAlmost as if you were in sync with the alien vessel, a flash of omega-infused lightning flashes over your body just as the ship finally breaches through its warp gate!Without skipping a beat, you jump off the precipice of the boom tube, your boots clunking against the front guard of Lobo's bike.As energy focuses around your soles to cling against the metal surface, you feel Lobo tap you on the shoulder.Turning your head, you see The Main Man holding a comically large sized hand canon, already locked and loaded.“You might want to keep your head down, I'm about to tear this mother a new hole!” He yells over his engine, not waiting for you to duck as he points the canon in your direction.Luckily, you crouch just in time, feeling a mass of heat nearly singe the back of your head as a deafening blast roars overhead.You look up in time to see flaming-hot shell impact against the ship's hull, the blast jostling the massive vessel to the side as smoke filled hole is burned through the exterior.“Hold on, we're going in dry!” Lobo hollers, his bike rushing to the billowing smoke escaping the entrance he created.Your suit's coat flaps violently as you tear through the air, preparing to leap off the front end of Lobo's bike as you infiltrate the ship!As the smoke envelopes the roaring bike, you lunge off it, doing a spectacular front flip in the air before both of your feet plant imposingly on the ground, a small wave of static traveling off your position.Looking up, you notice the interior of the ship is... Fleshy. The purple walls seem to be organic in some form, supported by sapphire ribbing lining the room and halls. The floor beneath you is a light green color, its texture like that of a beetle's shell, which you suppose makes sense.The area itself seems unremarkable, just a open circle in the middle of a long hall. However, that just gives the crimson-clad soldiers more room to work with as they flood in.The five rush in, staring you down behind orange visors and spear-like weapons, the air from outside lifting their capes off the floor.Under the orange visors, you see their jaws tense up as one of them begins to speak in clicks and growls.“Majin, translate. I can't understand this cricket shit.” You request, and wordlessly your belt complies.“I-It can't be!” One says in a panicked voice as the insectoid language is filtered into one you can understand.“What is the Tamaranean Devil doing here?!”Tamaranean Devil? Huh, you never realized you were notorious enough to warrant a name like that. It fills you with pride, even if it sounds like a cartoon character.[Choices in next post!]

>>2453769Nah these guys are grunts we don't need to do much against then
>>2453645>BYou lunge at the group, swiping your vorpal claws at one of the lancers only to have them swiftly jump back and narrowly avoid your attack!The tip of his lance begins to glow, and soon an arc of energy is shot at you from the deceptive weapon!The shot grazes against your chest armor as you dodge to the left side of the blast, only to have another of the soldiers thrust their spear at your back!Again, you manage to avoid the attack, twirling around the forceful stab only to grab the weapon by its head, tossing the crimson guard into one of his allies!He collides into the squad mate, but they're both able to keep their balance and recover from your parry, assuming fighting stances without hesitation.You keep your guard up, your arm blades held in front of face and chest as you tango with these soldiers.Suddenly, one of them gets a searing hole through their chest as a scorching bolt of heat is shot through them!Turning back, you see Lobo looking smug as he emerges from the smoke, the barrel of the gun in his hand red-hot from the shot.“What's the matter? I thought you would've had these fraggin' geeks in pieces by now!”“LOBO?! Oh-Ohhh!!! We're all gonna die!!!” One of the soldiers shrieks, their legs starting to tremble.“Calm yourself, we must fight! Either we die honorably, or die as cowards!” Another shouts at him, but he doesn't look much better given his odds.A: Keep fighting with Lobo, show him that you aren't going to fall behind!B: “You have fun with these guys, I'm going ahead and finding that Ambassador.”C: “I got this trash covered.

>>2453860>D“Don't worry, I'm about to have them in pieces and so much more!” Perhaps you were stuck in “dad mode,” but now you can feel yourself get the hang of things as you reach forward towards the surrounding guards, making them flinch.“Heheh... Etch these final moments into your soul before you're sent to Hell! This is the true power of Black Rider Battery!” You shout at the already frightened group of bug-men, hamming it up with your villainous act.“... What the hell was all that crap comin' outta your-” Lobo starts to rudely question before you cut him off.“HAAAAA!!!!”Your outstretched arms make a pulling motion as your body erupts in a crimson surge of electricity, crackles and pops of the violent energy go off across your body as you begin to focus and pull whatever electrical currents you can sense towards you!The ship doesn't shake, but rather vibrates intensely as the echoes of popping circuits and appliances travel through the ship.You can feel it all, the computer consoles and screens melting away as you strip the life from them, the lights failing throughout the ship to cover its crew in darkness, even the failure of many weapons as they're rendered useless by your ravenous might!The soldiers helplessly watch as their weapons are melted by the thrashing bolts burning through their metallic prison to escape into your palms. They have no other options, so they turn to run down the hall they were guarding, only to be greeted by the tidal wave of energy you had beckoned!They become riddled with holes as the endless wall of currents pierces them to get to you, burning their armor as they strike into your hands!The immense power fills you to the brim, your muscles and body expanding to accommodate the new strength.After finally absorbing all the power this ship had to offer you, you take a deep breath as you clench one of your fists tightly and flex, the fabric audibly straining around your stronger body.“Well I'll be... So that's the Human king of Tamaran everyone across the Vega System murmurs about. Helluva workout you got there.” Lobo comments in a calmer tone, but soon his face twists back into a wicked grin.“But the worst that'd do is give the main man a bruise! It'll do for now, though.” He adds with a soft cackle.“I don't really care for the opinions of you or those in that system, otherwise I would've stayed on Tamaran.” You begin, turning to face him.“Where would we find this Ambassador?”“Beats me.” Lobo answers with a shrug.“But ain't that the fun part? Finding a needle in a corpse stack? It'll be even more fun with the two of us! Whaddaya say, you wanna split the ship or tag-team these geeks?”A: “Let's make it interesting. We'll search together AND keep score of whatever gets in our way.”B: “I want to get this over with honestly. I have no interest in wading through weaklings like this.

>>2454196>AYou smirk.“Let's make it interesting. We'll search together AND keep score of whatever gets in our way.” Lobo shows a wide smile of genuine happiness, giving you a decent punch on the shoulder.“HELL-FRAGGIN'-YES! Looks like your balls grew with them muscles, basitche!” He cackles, already marching down the hall as you join him.“Just don't beat yourself up if I mop the floor with ya.” He taunts as you both reach a shut armored door at the end of the hall.“Well, if you completely drop the ball you'll still be The Main Man to me.” You chuckle back, thrusting your hands forward and prying open the sealed door with ease.Beyond the door is exactly what you expected, a small army of their soldiers in varying sizes ready to defend their leader. These ones look more courageous than the welcoming party, but you doubt they'll be much of a threat regardless.“Alright geeks!” Lobo shouts, pulling two heavy blasters from his vest, keeping them pointed towards the ceiling as he addresses the mass of crimson soldiers.“I'll give ya to the count of ten before I frag this entire place! One-”“TEN!” You shout abruptly, pointing your palm forward and throwing your Omega Beam Canon into the mass!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpwUTJsI3xIAs the zig-zags between numerous soldiers and burns through their bodies, Lobo begins to unleash a storm of shells into the crowd!His guns are deafening in the inside the ship, but it doesn't stop you from concentrating on your score as you rush through the sea of soldiers, finishing off most of them with one strike!This army was pathetically weak! Your knee and shin strikes crush their armor like foil, the blows caving in their skeletal structure as they spew pints of blood from their green jaws!Your technique of striking and slicing your way the top may look impressive, but you're starting to worry that you're completely outmatched by Lobo!He's a wall of death, burying the fallen in shell casings as he slays effortlessly. You're also starting think he hasn't had to reload since you both started.Eventually, you both find yourselves reaching an elevator of sorts in order to reach the captain's deck, leaving behind a mass of bodies and gun smoke behind.“Alright, I count about 68... How about you basitche?” Lobo asks, grinning confidently.“... 35.” You answer, your voice filled with disappointment as Lobo triumphantly laughs.“Aww, is this your first time doing this? I would've gone easier if you asked.” He mocks.“Shut up...” You groan, embarrassed by your own performance.Lobo just cackles to himself as the elevator continues to travel upwards, only ceasing once the doors slide open to reveal your next opponent.[CONTINUED IN THE NEXT POST]
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>2454247>>2454252>>2454253>>2454255watch this, friends
>>2454470Well at least you beat the rest of the rolls so good job.
>>2454470You beat us by 10, impressive.
>>2454470Battery more like Jobbery am I right
>>2454418You're the first to step forward, which is the only thing that saves you from something even more humiliating than being beaten by Lobo.You're almost too slow to react, but you manage to avoid being hit by a large sonic beam aimed straight at the elevator's doors!You brace yourself against one of the fleshy walls while the ringed beam hits Lobo square in the chest, planting him against the back wall of the elevator!“GRRRRGH!! YOU RAGGIN' FRAGGIN' UGLY SUNNUVA KEEZY BUG LOVIN'--”As Lobo strains to shout insults over the pressurized ray, the elevator begins to shake under the force of the sonic beam's impact against the wall, eventually causing it plummet all the way back down the shaft!As Lobo's insults trails off down the shaft, you look towards your attacker standing in a spacious room just beyond the hall.He's massive, at least seven feet tall and built like a tank. His muscle structure seems impossible for a human, his arms more gorilla-like than the rest of the bugs you fought until this point. The most shocking thing about his appearance is that it's almost identical to Blue Beetle's, except colored in shades of pitch black and gray.The giant Black Beetle just flashes a confident smile, the sonic canon on his right arm reverting to a normal state.“So, this is the human meat of Tamaran. I'm disappointed.” It addresses you in a monstrously low voice.“Disappointed? I just slaughtered a decent amount of your warriors getting here. Hell, I have almost all the power on this ship coursing through me.” You inform him as you begin to step forward, his only response to you being a low chuckle.“They are no warriors. I am the Warrior of The Reach, and your power is nothing compared to my Scarab.”“Your scarabs have proven to be inferior to the technology of Apokolips. Your blue counterpart was spared, but I don't think we shall offer you the same mercy.” Majin speaks up, his voice rich with arrogance.Black Beetle just stands there, his face only changing once he smugly cocks his head back.“Speechless, are we?” He muses.“Wait... Majin, can this guy not hear you?” You ask quietly, hoping the Black Beetle doesn't notice.“... Fascinating. The scarab on the boy seemed to be a separate entity, but he seems one with his. Master, be careful. This fight may not be as easy as I had presumed.”You nod, making your way into the circular room as you stand inches away from the towering alien.“I suppose you don't have any last words, meat?” He asks with a grin.Your eyes narrow behind your helmet. You got some last words for him alright...A: “SUSANOO!”B: “RAIJIN!”C: “AMAZO, ASSISTANCE!”D: “TO ME, MY THUNDERFORCE!”E: “Yeah, I—OH SWEET CHRIST WHAT IS THAT BEHIND YOU?!”[One vote permitted]
>>2454535>CThunderforce are jobbers too
>>2454542changing to A: “SUSANOO!”Lets eviscerate this fucker.
>>2454535changing my vote to >B: “RAIJIN!”
>>2454535>EFor the lulz
>>2454535>A“Yeah, I do...”Your hands reach for your belt, hitting the switch once again.“SUSANOOOOOOOOOO!!!!” Majin and you both roar, another flash of lightning covering your form and forcing the Black Beetle to step back!However, he only takes a cautionary step away to safely shift his arm into a sharp blade, thrusting it into the shifting red energy surrounding you!However, the strike is blocked by the swift drawing of your Omega Beam Katana, the heat of the blade causing the two clashing edges to squeal as steam rises from the point of contact!You both push in close, his strength seeming to match your own as you get in each others faces from behind the crossing blades!Evidently, you both get the same idea to attack by different means to break the power struggle, with your boot kicking into his waist and his forehead smashing into your white mane!You both recoil from the traded blows, quickly recovering to prepare your next attack.Black Beetle's spare arm joins the other in shifting into a blade, crossing both of them in front of his broad chest as he stares you down.Placing both hands on the hilt of your sword, you raise the blade high above your head, opening yourself up as you prepare an attack.It's an intense moment shared between you both, circling each other around the room as you engage in a stand off.A part of you feels happy things are turning out this way. No way you'd share a fight like this with anyone.[TO BE CONTINUED]
That's all for this week! Sorry for running so late, but I wanted to have a really good stopping point!Thank you all for participating and staying with me! As always, I'll be around to answer some questions, but if I pass out I'll be sure to answer more tomorrow!
>>2454620Man already? I wanted more. So how pissed is Lobo? And did Amazo got Rena ice cream?
>>2454632Sorry anon, but it's been a very sleepy day for me!Lobo is super mad! To beat Battery in kills and get shafted like that? Unacceptable!Rena may have gotten a tub or two...
>>2454641What WAS blackfire wearing?
>>2454646Probably her skintight suit, cape, and crown!
>>2454650How mad are the lanterns that we attacked their Reach buddies?
>>2454650what do the young justice think of us
>>2454702It's uncertain, but I'm sure we'll find out!>>2454704They think we're a jerk except for Barbara!
>>2454710even blue beetle? His beetle fucked him up more by assuming control than we did.
>>2454741Maybe not him so much, but your meddling with the Reach will definitely interest him!
>>2456455Good so we will slowly get him to our side.
>>2456601Surrely you already know that once Reno gets a thing in his head he's hard to back away from it. Unless it's something Rena or Blackfire ask.
>>2457346On a scale of barely any spoops to a spritemare with the intensity of a million draculas, how much of an infamy have we built with the Reach and other aliens?
>>2459472Enough to be somewhat notorious, but not Darkseid or Red Lantern levels of terrifying.
