Heroes have always been part of human culture throughout the globe: from Heracles and Odysseus; to Rostam and Esfandiyar; all the stories about the Knights of the Round Table, extraordinary men and women who saved civilization from threats it otherwise would never have survived. Though less than a century ago they were dismissed as myth or lost in time. Tales parents told their children to put them to bed; or explain histories or facts about the world that they themselves didn’t know. Then in the early 1920’s these larger than life figures started returning, with their numbers exploding as the second World War broke out, especially in the United States, for whatever reason. Almost every decent sized city had at least one or two caped crusaders battling mafia members, mad scientists, or Axis aligned spies and saboteurs. A new age of legends had begun and this one is yours.The Justice League was formed seven years ago and that shook the world just as much as when Wondy and the rest first showed up in the first place. Inspired by the JSA, but promising to do so much more. Suddenly the people wearing pajamas weren’t just saving their city from the maniacs, or teaming up to stop say the Nazis, but stopping international incidents and global problems on a regular basis. Then governments starting relying on them and starting slashing military budgets. Then it became on an almost weekly basis, sometimes more. At first things were just generally better for everyone involved with no downside, but things are almost always more complicated than they appear. The other half of the coin, those who used their powers at the expense of others and for their own gain, Super Villains, starting organizing in response to the Justice League; aliens began fearing Earth and it’s superhero community, or “Metahumans” as they generally like calling them; and some nations began withdrawing from the wider world, fearful of “Superhuman Gap” and the loss of their own autonomy.To help with the extra workload, you lot come in. They’re forming a new group called, Young Justice. A team of composes of the Justice League members’ or associates’ sidekicks to handle the smaller problems or crises, to help ensure there are more Justice League members to handle more serious threats to the world. As a matter of fact, you’re meeting your future teammates today at the Hall of Justice. You’re actually going to attend a Justice League Council meeting, how cool is that?
>>2809168"Superboy go for knockout blows." You yell, bolting forward in a blur. "Kid Flash and I will go fast and use hit and run.."Wally almost overtakes you and offers you a look mild disgust; he goes as far to shake his head and tut-tut at you. " I've been doing this for years with the Flash. You don't have to tell me what do when taking on a giant Changeling."Wally flashes with in a few inches of Blockbuster and then delivers a long series of kicks to the dark skinned giant's left hip; each individual kick having little impact on it's own, but the sheer amount and speed of the blows, it still knocks and sliders him to his side. Blockbuster lets out a roar more expected out of an angry tiger and tried pummel Kid Flash. Before the blow can connect, Kid Flash zooms to the far end of the room, causing Blockbuster's attack to go wild and hit the floor. The sheer power of it shakes the ground like a Martina; you almost lose your footing, as the ground shifts beneath you. Desmond looks utterly confused at the empty ground, like he no object permanence.Kid Flash goes in blow, but this time either Blockbuster is ready or his swing is just lucky. He swings his entire forearm at Wally, who still is fast enough to almost back up away from it even as he has to stop a mere inch from the giant’s arm.You move in as he fails, changing first into a cheetah, pouching on Desmond’s back. You knock him him on his knees and bring his head down hard on the ground. He gets up immediately, just he had just tripped, and you shit into a hawk, managing to fly away as he tries to grab you. You almost reach the ceiling and are about to turn around, when you feel it when he leaps.Before he can repeat what you just did, you dive to the ground to avoid it. He slams through the celiling and then somehow bounces down towards you, almost immediately. You transform into a cheetha again to start running away, but he grabs you by the tail and stars spinning you around. Within seconds you’ve gone around and around, more than a dozen times, and the world is a blur.He releases you into Superboy who was just about to doing a leaping punch to him. You both go flying into and through a wall.Blockbuster beats his chest. You shift into a cobra.

Blockbuster races towards the two of you, picking up enough speed to look little more than a blur to you. That still put him leagues behind Wally, who managed to circle him at least five times and pummel him with a dozen blows each time while passing him. Each strike did little more than cause Blockbuster to shake or mistep slightly, his bulk and strength just brushing off any actual damage. The white monstrosity even knocks Kid Flash through a wall with a flick of his wrist during all of it. But those seconds he bought you were more than enough to stop Desmond.You hop onto Superboy’s arm as he rushes forward, already in the shape and weight of a small rope, as you curl around his muscle laden arms. He was winding up a punch, he looked down concerned at you, like he might not go through it. Something in your eyes told him to trust himself, because his eyes stopped wavering and his fist flew toward’s the giant’s head. Blockbuster bobbed back reflexively, and then you pounced. A handful of inches away from his face, you finished your transformation into a cobra and spat into Blockbuster’s eyes. He screamed and covered them, leaving himself open to Superboy’s punch from his free hand. And then a knee to the stomach and powerful right hook to the jaw that sent him through a concerte wall, and another made of glass. Blockbuster was still standing though, blind as a bat and throwing at punches randomly, but still standing.>Ask Robin and Aqualad to pin him down with trick batarangs and water whips, and rush him with Superboy as a rhino>Turn into a T-Rex and toss him around with your powerful jaw.>Turn into a giant squid and hold him down while Robin throws knockout gas at him or something>Turn into a giant squid and ask Aqualad to summon a lot of water around the two of you.

“Aqualad, back me up!” You yell, your body expanding exponentially.“Got it!” Aqualad yells in return, pointing his twin silver handles at you and Blockbuster.The pale goliath didn’t know you were coming, you noticed. Obviously he couldn’t see you with the poison in his eyes, but didn’t seem to understand anything the two of you were yelling either. The current from Aqualad just carried you to Blockbuster, while he flailed around in the opposite direction.You could almost hold all his limbs with your eight tentacles, but you left his right leg free, while you used to of them to slip and knot themselves around his neck. In his rage and pain from your and Superboy’s previous attacks, he didn’t notice what was happening until the water reached his nose.He was stronger than you could have accounted for. You had to weight tons, but he tossed you up and down like a bull does to the cowboy in it’s back. He thrashed back and forth, you went through walls, tables, and floors. Luckily, you squid body could handle the physical force against it, especially as the your strong limbs kept him deep in the midst of the giant bubble that surrounded the two of you and he started to lose his breath. His white face turned purple before he went still however. You were surprised he could still do that.After a minute, you loosened your grip and Aqualad, let the bubble pop. Robin threw a couple batarangs at Desmond’s limp body and a foamy substance covered him, just to make sure.You grouped around each other as you exited what was left of the front entrance. You were all smiling or breathing hard, except Superboy, who looked nervously around you the four of you.>Welcome abroad man>Great job Superboy, you got a nice right hook.>We did it!>Stay here Superboy, the Justice League is going to want a word with you>Write in
>>2809496>>Great job Superboy, you got a nice right hook.
>>2809496>We did it!>Welcome abroad man
>>2809496>Welcome abroad man
"Welcome aboard man, nice right hook." You say, playfully punching him the shoulder. He rubs it awkwardly and looks at you with a raised eyebrowIt's about twenty minutes before the Wally, Superboy, and you make your way back up the lobby of S.T.A.R Labs. You had decided to follow Robin's suggestion to go gather civilians, while they contacted the Justice League. Wally skidded around the corridors and hallways looking for survivors or stray, hostile Genomorphs but found nothing. Thinking to follow up on another of Robin's suggestions, you did swing towards Desmond's office, but it was literally burned to ash. Pretty easily thing to hide in the middle of a fire; even if it burned so hot and concentrated here that the floor itself was scorched black. After your slug fest with Blockbuster there wasn't anything to do anymore. You had go face the music.Sure enough, not only were all your mentors there, but nearly the entire Justice League. Animal Man, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Red Tornado, Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Zatara, Green Lantern, the Martian Manhunter, Captain Atom, Captain Marvel...lot of captains now that you though of it. Maybe there were even more hidden by darkness, the moonlight revealing just most of them. In any case they were going at it with Kaldur pretty hard."Stand down Aqualad!" Aquaman says firmly.Animal Man turns to you, his arms crossed. "Care to explain this to us? You could have gotten hurt and my brother would have killed me!">Hey, it's our job isn't it. We did what we were supposed to do. What you taught us to do! Lives where on the line>Hey the comlinks were down, we had to improvise.>Sorry...but this is our job right?>Write in
>>2809496>We did it!>Welcome abroad man!
>>2809547>hey, its our job isnt it. We did what we were supposed to do...

>>2809547>Hey, it's our job isn't it. We did what we were supposed to do. What you taught us to do! Lives where on the line
>>2809547>>Hey the comlinks were down, we had to improvise.
>>2809547>>Hey the comlinks were down, we had to improvise.>Animal Man turns to you, his arms crossed. "Care to explain this to us? You could have gotten hurt and my brother would have killed me!">"Well gee, it's almost like being part of a group of underage vigilantes is dangerous. Who could've known?"
“Hey, it's our job isn't it. We did what we were supposed to do. What you taught us to do! Comms were down and it was either leave people to die or act. We acted.”You turn to your uncle and let your eyebrows raise a bit. “Are you kidding? Well gee, it's almost like being part of a group of underage vigilantes is dangerous. Who could've known?" Your uncle grimaces. “You know Mar-I mean Changeling, don’t remind me why your father is going to lay into me when we get together for Thanksgiving if you don’t have to. You boys do have a point.”“A point!? They could have gotten themselves killed.” Aquaman says. Aquald steps in front of you and stares at his mentor confidently. "We did good work here tonight. The work you trained us to do. Together, on our own, we forged something powerful; something very important. We stopped an underground cloning and genetic weapons lab, we apprehended the ringleader of the operation, and we saved dozens if not hundreds of people." "While all the firefighters and civilians are accounted for, six members of S.T.A.R labs cyber tech division are mission can’t remember anything more than their first and last names, maybe their addresses. Four more have disappeared entirely, probably clones or genomorphs that escaped. Likewise we can find no traces of these genemorphs you mentioned, including your supposed man on the inside Dubdliex, who was Dr. Desmond’s partner or head assistant if I recall from Robin’s brief over the comms.” Batman suddenly interjects, stepping forward gloomily, and then suddenly smiling. “Good job. You saved a lot of lives today.” "That's right, you all..." Wonder Woman starts. “What?” "There is no such thing as perfection on the mission, we can always find room for improvement. You made mistakes and serious ones at that. But thanks to all of you, hundred and eight people are alive. If you had hesitated there is a strong possibility they would have died. What you did took not only guts, but skill and infinitive. You’re all green and made plenty of errors, but you’ve proven yourselves capable for when you do this next time.”"Next time." Robin says excitedly. "So the team is still banded?"
>>2809597"What? Come on they were way over their heads and they..." Wonder Woman starts and then stops herself. "Back to what they were supposed to be doing right? Setting out fires and helping with disaster relief, right?"Kaldur turns to her and frowns. "So was Speedy right? Is this just a social club? We proved that....""You're foolish, rash, and worst of all young." Manhunter finished and then looked over to Wonder Woman. "But yes, all of them today proved that they could and should be trusted more. Not this much again right away, but with training and supervision, maybe.…"Aquaman stepped forward. “They’re still children, they...”Animal Man stepped forward and put a hand on his shoulder, pointing at Kaldur with his free hand. “That child risked his life to save yours once before and you kinda enabled him after that. I think this is less Aquaman talking, and his mother hen instintics. If my halfwit nephew Marton is ready, so is Kaldur.Both Aquaman and Wonder Woman look around and realize they’ve been defeated. Both sigh as the Justice League swarms you all with both congratulations and advice. They were almost as excited as you were.“Sweet, we got a team, what should we call ourselves?” Robin asks, running up to you all. “What about...the Teen Titans.”“Lame.” You say.“I think it’s kind of cool.” Kid Flash addsBatman coughs, and suddenly you realize he had been standing there as soon as Robin was. “We have things to discuss.”You spend the next half hour hearing what an idiot you all were. You feel like one at the end of it. You were parroting words before basically when you said how much you messed up, he proved it you. You’re sure there was some affectionate advice at the end, but the sharp scapel he disceted your pride with for the preceding 29 minutes overrode that.The entire team, sans Superboy lets out a sigh of relief. He just walks up to Superman, tapping on the man's shoulder. Superman for the first time looks at him, Superman's eyes almost popping out of his skull. He has about a foot on Superboy and a couple of crows feet, but otherwise the two of them could have been mirror images of another. You hadn't noticed it before, but Superboy's tunic had been torn in his fight with Blockbuster, the flap itself he pulls back into it's original place; he was revealing a large S in the middle of a familiar emblem.
>>2809599"I-I'm your clone." Superboy says."That's...nice?" Superman says, rubbing the back of his head, obviously confused and embarrassed. "Don't worry we -I mean the league- won't send you back to Cadmus or S.T.A.R Labs. If you have any questions feel free to ask Batman.With that he was gone, flying quickly into the moonlight, and then disappearing into the darkness."HE JUST LEFT?!?" Superboy yells, incredulous. Which was a fair reaction in your opinion."Look on the bright side." Kid Flash says. "There's a full moon out tonight and you're finally free of that dusty old basement.""I've never seen the moon before, not really." Superboy says, looking up at the giant, pale yet bright circle in the sky and getting quiet. "Not used to that.""Trust me you will. But if your lucky, you won't get cynical and get tired of it." You say joining him in gazing up in the brilliant night sky. Kaldur and Marton here were right, you just didn't do something important tonight, you MADE us something important tonight. “>Go home with Animal Man>Ask if Superboy wants to stay with you and Animal Man’s family until the League gets him sorted out.>You’re too excited hit the town after all this, you’ll have to slip out of your room so Buddy won’t know…>Write in

>>2809615Support.I has personal reserves about saying "shitty" though.
“Hey, Superboy, my uncle might just be a stuntman but his wife brings in real dough. Their house, is huge. They got a guest room down in the basement, queen sized bed and a tv down there. Why don’t you stay with us a few nights while the League shorts your situation out.”Superboy looks over you a moment. “That’d be fine, I guess. Shouldn’t you ask your uncle first though...”“It’s cool” Animal Man yells, giving a thumbs up from far away. “I got the hearing of a dog right now. Marton doesn’t need to ask, he’s lived long enough to know it wouldn’t be a big deal. You touch the liquor cabinet though, and I’ll nab Batman’s chunk of kyrptonite. While he was still frowning, Superboy let out a laugh. “Thank you.”You turn into a pterodactyl and let Superboy ride on your back to your home in Star City. Animal Man, Superboy, and you are mostly silent for this. "Well I understand that Superman just bailing on you was really shitty, suddenly having a younger clone show up isn't exactly something people are trained to handle properly. Well not yet, anyway. Just take it slow, and don't do what he did if we find an even younger clone of you." Superboy grunts what sounds like laughter again, you make it there in a couple of hours. Ellen and Cliff are actually waiting, both exciteded to talk to Buddy about what it was like with the League today and being mildly surprised that you brought home a souvenir. Ellen leads Superboy down in the basement, reminding the Buddy and you to warm up an extra plate of the dinner she left in the fridge for the two of you, for Superboy.Ten minutes latter Superboy comes up and somehow likes vegetarian chili.“You know it’s summer Marton, you’re going to have all of tomorrow free and even tonight...if you can get back by 1’, maybe you’d like to show Connor around town.”“Sure, ah, she’s going to have to wear something besides his uniform.” You say with a smile...maybe…>You want to see how a movie gets made.

>>2809681“Let’s catch some Z’s and go to this museum in the afternoon. You could stand to see a little of the history of the world you’re going into.” You say, putting a spoonful of chili in your mouth.Superboy snorts. “I know all of recorded history. That’s what I was learning while I was on ice, through hypnotic sleep techniques and REM dream manipulation.” “You know about the moon too, then you saw it. Big difference between what’s in the book and what’s in front of you.” You say, smiling and looking over your empty cup regretfully. “I miss the real stuff.”“He’s right, Superboy...man we got to get you a real name. What about Bernie? Or Steve.” Buddy adds, rubbing his chin. “Anyway that sounds smart. But it’s okay to do something dumb. You have a part time job, but Supes here doesn’t. I’ll leave him twenty bucks if you kids want to get lunch or dinner...or go that barcade you like hanging out at. No drinking. And if you do drink call me to pick you up, or those tights you’re wearing will disappear so fast you’ll know I could have been the Flash if I wanted to.“Pass on those names.” Superboy says sullenly, but then smiling. “But it does sound...interesting. Thank you both for your hostility.” “No prob, Conner?” Buddy says, raising an eyebrow.“Fine, if it will get you to shut up.” Conner says, despite it all smiling.>End

thread #1 archived
>>2809682Thank you both for your hostility. Hahahaha, holy crap that was the funniest thing. Are we Vegan or can we still enjoy Delicious Meat, I was thinking as the second power up we choose 'Absolute rapid regeneration'. With that we could turn into a cow, cut off pieces of ourselves for an Endless supply of meat. We could even turn into a baby cow for Veal... Is that a fucked up thing to think about?
>>2809750Not to be mean, .... yes it's fucked up
>>2809750I'm hoping that we eat vegan food at home but actually love to eat meat outside of home. I think Gar's reasoning for being a vegetarian was that he didn't want to eat anything he could turn into, but we're not as concerned about that.Hell, if we ever run into Beast Boy and we want to troll him, we should shape our head into a cow while eating a cheeseburger. Or Chic-Fil-a for extra laughs.
>>2809750>>2809947None of that vegan stuff, please.I never understood Gar's reasoning.So just because he can turn into the animals, he refuses to eat meat? That's pretty stupid, it's not cannibalism, and even if it was, that shit's pretty common in nature, the Great White eats it's siblings while still inside the womb for God's sake. it's just as stupid a reasoning as some religious people that refuse to eat meat because it might be a reincarnated ancestor or something. Isn't he supposed to be in tune with the primal side since you know, he turns into beasts? Mother Nature is an absolute neutral uncaring bitch, it's eat and be eaten, a creature's death provides life to another who in turn dies and provides for another ad infinitum, if anyone should be okay with eating meat it should be guys like Gar, let nothing go to waste, out of respect for the prey.We need dem sweet proteins from the source rather than supplement pills, plus it tastes amazing, Gar can stick with his soiboy diet if he wants, we on the other hand should go full Lion King Circle of Life about it.
>>2810072Ive thought a about gars hangup about eating meat, and I have far as far as his diet goes. Idk that he would force an issue about his diet as long we had a cogent and respectable argument about our philosophy on CD carnivoreism, idk we should be mean about it either.
>>2810072>>2810072Buddy is an animal rights activist and I'm adding that to Marton to actually give him character.I will leave it open for you to decide if he shares Buddy's vegetarianism, goes further, or likes ordering the meat lover's from Pizza Hutt
>>2810421I vote we only eat mainstream livestock meat, such as beef, pork, chicken, cod, salmon, etc. Crab farms used to exist so if that's also a possibility.Those animals only exist to feed people or animals, so it'd be considered natural.
>>2810421I'd imagine Marton trying to go for meat that was ethically caught or raised, but would bend if it was really good. There'd be no way in hell I'd ever play a character that would refuse a Cyburger.
update coming shortly.
You dress up in something besides yellow and black spandex for a change, though you keep the brown coat. Part of you thought the kids in school only humored you when you pretended to slip away to fight crime. Personally you didn’t get why you needed a secret identity half the time in the first place.Connor leaves Buddy’s hour in a black tee shirt and jeans. He looks at you a little dismissively, “You sure you want to wear that out?”“You sure you don’t want to wear a mask or something when fighting crime?” You ask, blown away by the hypocrisy “Whatever, let’s go.” Connor quipsBy the time you reach the museum, its’ raining out.

can someone link me to the first thread?
“What’s wrong?” Conner asks, peering over at the map your looking at.“Just wondering where the Art of the Ancient World exhibit is at.” You say frowning, pouring over it.“Second floor, west wing.” Conner answers robotically, after just barely seeing it. “Let’s go.”Conner was about to use twenty for one of the middle of the road passes when he gets to the ticket booth, but you put up a hand a pay with your credit card. He didn’t seem to get that he was your guest and that you were treating him today. “Dude, we told you we’d help you out while the League set things up for you.” You say whisperin g and laughing. “Come on.”Conner hesitates, but eventually nods and let’s you treat. Stop his stoic, above it all attitude he stops at two of the general exhibits on the way there. One showing the day of a cavemen and another of the skeleton of a large triceratops. While he huffs noncommittally to each one, he plants his feet and you have to almost drag him to the staircase leading to the second floor’s Ancient Art exhibit.While conjoling him to confess the dinosaur was kind of cool, your elbow meets the side of a short, pretty Asian woman who is maybe two years older than you? Three? In any case it causes her to spill her purse and pass onto the floor.You immediately reach down to grab it for it, an embarrassed smile spread on your face. “So sorry about that Ma’am, I was too busy...”“Ma’am? Come on, I might have a year on you two.” The woman in the cap smiles. “It’s fine...I got somewhere to be though.”“Already got it, see I’m quick.” You say, already having piled it together and handed to her. “If you don’t mind me asking...where? My friend here is a human GPS and can point it out if you’re lost.”“That isn’t something to brag about kid, but that would be nice. Name’s Jade.” She says offering a hand and a flirtatious smile. “Ancient Art Exhibit.”“Long odds, that’s where we’re heading, right.” You say smiling, resting an elbow on the rail next you and focusing on her features a bit. She was more than pretty, she was a bombshell. “So you wouldn’t mind if I-I mean we-, walked with you right. He can point you there personally.”“You aren’t very good at this. You stepped in a landmine there at the end.” Jade answers with a contemptuous purr. “But you seem fun regardless, so sure.”“Are you really flirting with some woman you just met.” Conner asks, a little disgusted. “Man, wait until you get to know Wally.” You say to him before your eyes go back to Jade.>Ask if she’s here on vacation>Does she go to the museum often? Cause you know a few other high socitey places that are kind of cool>You know my uncle works in the film industry and if you want to meet Chadwick Boseman, he’s in town this month…>Wait, Conner, are you jealous. Cause just talk to her manipulation>Write in
>>2811040>Ask if she’s here on vacation
>>2810421I say big on animal rights but is a big advocate on using all the parts in respect to the animal. The hunter minset vs Gar's more chill vegetarian mindset.
>>2811107Alright, it is going to come up, so I will remember this option.
“So are you here on vacation or something?” You ask, as the three of you stroll towards the exhibit. It’s a big colorful display hanging from the walls advertised it. Two foam statues of Athena mixed in with the clay soldiers from the Forbidden City. Cute.“No, more like business, that’s no reason I can’t have a little fun though” Jade answers. “I take it the two of you are from here though, right?”“Not me, just got here a last night.” Connor answers. “But Marton here has lived here for the past year and visited here his entire life for summers and Christmas’ right? Your his father is very close to his brother.”“Don’t remember telling you that, but yeah.” You say, smiling sheepishly.“Ah, so are you in college now and just staying there to save on rent?” Jade asks, “Cause we’re really around the same age than, spare a few months.”“Yes,” You lie instantly.“No, he’s a senior in high school. He’s seventeen.” Connor says at the same time.“Dude!” You say, punching his shoulder. Connor just looks at you curiously Jade laughs, pinching your cheek. “Cute. But it’s alright, I’m not that deterred, I’m nineteen. How long have you been hitting on older women you meet in museums Marton.”“Since today, one pm. You just seemed like you were fun.” You say with a smile, Jade arms still on your shoulder. You almost had a full foot on her, but it was almost like you couldn’t get out her grip if you tried. She was strong. “You gotta live in the moment Jade, the sun just might rise tomorrow.”“A man after my own heart,” Jade says with a smile. “I’m going to look at the Iranian art if you’d like to join me.”“Pass, I want to see the Chinese art.” Connor says suddenly.>Come Connor, be a pal.>I’ll meet back up with in a bit in the Greek section, I’m going with Jade.>Sorry, Jade this is where we part. Have a nice day.>Don’t wait up man, I’m going with Jade
>>2811186>>I’ll meet back up with in a bit in the Greek section, I’m going with Jade.
>>2811186>I’ll meet back up with in a bit in the Greek section, I’m going with Jade.
>>2811186>>I’ll meet back up with in a bit in the Greek section, I’m going with Jade.I hope he is secretly wing-manning for us by going off and not just being a brooding puss.
>>2811186>I’ll meet back up with in a bit in the Greek section, I’m going with Jade.Friends are always there for you, but hot asians you've got a shot with are once in a....well not lifetime but if you've got a chance go for it.
>>2811218I can't spoiler but he is. He wouldn't admit it, yet but yes.
>>2811246Truly he is Superman's son, and not Luthor's gay science babby
“I’ll meet back up with you in a bit in the Greek section, I’m going with Jade.” You say, waving him off. After awhile he returns it, with what you think is a smile on his face for a short bit.Jade leads you down the hallways until you hit the Iranian section. It was all simple lined and colored art depicting either kings, landscapes, more about zoroastrianism, and scenes from the Shahnameh. You notice how as you go deeper and deeper into it, it gets surprisingly more erotic at sections. Part of you wonders if Jade had done this on purpose, but the more and more she looks around, like she was looking for something, puts that possibility out of your mind.“Your friend seems a little uptight.” Jade says, stopping at what looks like a mace in the shape of an elephant’s skull. “Not your speed at all.”“If I hung out with people like me all day, I’d kill myself. He’s kinda of refreshing to be honest.” You say peering down on it. “They say Rustam had a weapon like this. He got it from killing an elephant when he killed an elephant when he was eight with his grandfather’s old one.”“Well I got the jist of the first part when I read the name plate.” Jade said, tapping on the nameplate with her index finger. “You seem to be a history buff though. Never could get through Journey to the West or the Odyssey, like alone the rest of the so called classics.”“Are you kidding? How can’t you, we know it’s all living history now.” You say, with a smile. Your interest in the stuff was kind of personal and maybe a little narcissistic.“You can learn about the first Superman by reading about the first ones.”Your hand reaches down, and Jade suddenly puts her own over it. It intertwines with yours. “Funny, for such a bookish guy, you have a really nice build and your hands are all calloused. And you’ve got some secret you’re hiding at the same time. All good points.”You look down at Jade and her entire body is close to yours as this point. Her breasts were rubbing up against your chest, her face was inching up closer and closer to your yours. Her lips were puckered and promising something sweet. Her eyes were spicy, and promising mischief.Was that a man’s reflection in the glass?>Who cares, kiss Jade>Turn around first>Take a closer look at the reflection>Write in

we could see the cocaine in his nostrils
You almost freeze entirely as Jade’s lips latch onto yours, eyes still glued onto the glass case and the small figure in green and orange dancing on it. Suddenly, he disappears and a hand replaces his visage, as it places itself over the mace. Jade’s face suddenly blocks your view.For a few short moments, you forget the weird image you just saw and focus on the moment. She is sweet as her lips promised. It’s utter bliss. Then your eyes go back to the case, seeing that the elephant shaped mace had vanished and that the reflection of the man in orange was now on another display case and than another….and then another. It seemed to be darting for a moment.“Hey, focus,” Jade says, suddenly breaking from you. “How new are you at this?”“Not that new. Look, the mace is gone.” You say, three seconds before an alarm goes off. You look at Jade who for a moment, looks like she was cool as a cucumber, with a cooler respect in her eyes, before she started to panic. “Oh my god, it’s gone...but we were right next to it!” Jade says panicking. “I can’t be here, I’ve got a record. They’re not going to believe that I...”“Relax, I saw who did it. They’ll believe you.” You say putting a hand on her shoulder. “Wait here.”“Wait, don’t go.” Jade says, putting an arm on you shoulder. “I’m scarred.”Her eyes were watering, but there was a glint in them. Like this was all gag or something.>Just wait here, I’ve got to go.>Let’s go find Conner, he might be as scared as you are>Trust me, it’s important I go...if I don’t you don’t have to worry about going to jail.>Alright, fine!>Write in

>>2811495"Why are all the pretty girls supervillains?"
>>2811495Sure but that would kind of reveal we're a superhero if she gets hostile because we'd definitely need our powers to defend ourself.
>>2811512It's a tie now and I'm so biased towards this, I'm going to call it for it if it stay this way.
>>2811516Change my vote for calling her out
>>2811516I'll vote on calling her bluff.
>>2811515"Why are all the pretty girls supervillains?" You ask with a smile, suddenly grabbing tightly across the wrists. “Were you looking for a random good samaritan to be your alibi?”The worry, washes from her face and is replaced with predatory, catlike glint in her eye. A cheshire grin if there ever was one. Nasty, mean, and oh so sexy. “No. But when I found a superhero to be one, even if it was a sidekick, I knew my ass would be in and out of police station in a Metropolis minute instead of a week. Besides, you and Red Arrow were always the cute ones and I got to have a little fun. That’s what decoy’s do baby. Now how did you figure me out, was I too forward?”“More like the act at the end was a little to desperate.” You say. “I didn’t know you hung out with Mirror Master though...wait, how did you know I was a superhero.”“Mirror Master and your uncle Buddy go way back. Buddy kinda spilled the beans on you to him when you first manifested your powers when you were thirteen? Fourteen?”“You got it right the first time.” You say, suddenly of how strong she actually was. It seemed like she could get out of your grip in a second. “I take it you aren’t going to come in peacefully.”“What is it with you boys? Even now you pretend you want some demure little submissive girl.” Cheshire says with a grin, licking her lips. She started pulling out of your hold. “We both want this to be rough and dirty, right? The boy should always chase after the girl.”>Try to hold her in place with a hold.>Turn into a boa constrictor and tangle up her entire body. >Turn into a hippo and sit on her>Turn into Bigfoot and grapple her.>Yell to Superboy about Mirror Master>Write in

“Superboy, Mirror Master is running off with the Mace of Rustam!!!”You begin to change your form. You skin begins to harden and break into dark green scales, your legs turn into tiny stubs, and your just get long as hell. You slither around her arms and chest, letting out a low hiss.Cheshire just squeezes her arms together, you flop harmlessly onto the floor. Without missing a beat, she grabs you by the tail and spins you around, before throwing you against numerous walls and panels. She let’s your go and you go through a glass display case and knock over panel.“Please don’t whip your snake out during the first date, baby.” Cheshire says, before darting away. “I’ve got to split, don’t worry I had fun.

You go from a long limp, reptile to a short black hairy ape that could normally rip and tear the normal human apart. You jump up on panel and then leap to another. Jade manages to make into the main hallway and into the foyer right as you get to the beginning of the exhibit.She turns and waves goodbye, sitting on railing and scooting down a staircase. You roar and hop the ceiling, swinging from the rafters and lights. Each single jump you make point from point, is a long stride. You can tell from hey eyes that she regrets her little taunt. You release your grip and go flying to the to the bottom floor, catching yourself easily on a stylized wall panel, part of a gigantic faux modern art red stripe. You scramble onto the floor, letting even your knuckles propel you.Jade drops down, turns, and tries to run the opposite way, but she underestimates your leaping capability. You land on the staircase next to her, then a railing next to her, and then you’ve tacked her onto the ground, after leaping at her like a missile.“Just be glad I didn’t use the ranged option.” You growl.You can tell Jade is reaching for something…some bladed weapon.>Twist her arm hard, you have the strength advantage>Turn to a hippo, she’s strong enough that you won’t crush her.>Turn into a giant tortoise and go into your shell>Write in

You twist the arm she’s reaching the weapon with back hard. She let’s out a loud moan and drops what looks like a Sai. “What, I thought you liked the rough stuff.”“And dirty.” She cries out, bringing up her knee in your groin.Your breathless and weightless for a moment. Any hold you have on her is gone. Then Jade spins on her side, bringing a powerful left hook to your jaw, and sending you sprawling to the floor next to her, while she is up on her armpit. She slides up into a coiled crouch that tells you she could pounce on you any minute, while your still writhing on the floor.As soon as you get up, focused as you are, she lashes out. Somehow she managed to grab the Sai on the floor without you noticing it and a spare one from somewhere else. You step back before she could seriously cut you, but you know the hair around your chest has been shaved clean and a line of scarlet red is forming on your chest.“Come on now, show me what you got kid.” Cheshire says, before pounching again, Sai raised over her head.>Turn into a tortoise and go into your shell, then shift into a bull and ram her into the wall.>Turn into Bigfoot and give her a belly to belly suplex>There’s enough room, turn into a T-Rex and then swat her away with your tail>Into a falcon and fly away, look for an opening.>Write in

Right before Cheshire is about to drop down those two sharp blades down you, you shrink ever so slightly. Your skin hardens and splits once again into those scales, but also on your back and chest does so much more. It even fuses with your backbone and shapes and shifts even more bone into your flesh, into something as hard as stone, in the process making you much heavier. A shell for a tortoise this big will do that.You withdraw your head and let Cheshire’s Sai come down hard as she wants. It won’t be hard enough to crack your shell. Indeed as you feel them bounce off you, you even see they shatter and scatter across the room. Cheshire still tries to press her momentum and tries to through a fist inside the hole your head ducked in.But you’re almost already a bull now. With as hard as your head is and as fast as you rush forward, you can feel a few of her fingers break. Then you break her guard and slam head first into her belly, horns locking her into another hold. You run forward, thrashing around with her, before you decide to throw her into a now empty ticket both.You shift back into a human, assured this fight is over, only to look over and see she is getting back up. She bruised and bloody, but still well in fighting condition. She gives you a smile. “Sure I can’t convince you to let me go? Being put into lockdown is going to make it hard to make on time for that drink.”“Don’t tell me you can’t afford bail.” You reply, getting ready to shift again, when a familiar face appears at you shoulder.“I heard over the radio she has an accomplice, do you have the situation in hand here, or do you want take over?” Speedy asks.

>>2812049Meh, she always loses anyway. I think manthor's first quest was the only time raven has won, and she had to share with harely anyway.
>>2812049Ehh, bit too edgy for my tastes. Wouldn't really say it happens in every other cape quest either. Didn't happen in DC quest and Metahuman quest at least.
>>2812052Yeah..I'm glad I rebooted it though, personal shit and how fast people and I made the game moved kinda ruined it.Also, Starfire and Donna Troy will be introduced relatively soon in this quest. I'm (half) following Young Justice here, so Cain is sadly out of your age bracket. Maybe.Raven won't appear until the five year gap between S1 and S2, which will present an opportunity to do Teen Titans (or the new JSA)
>>2812059Isn't she? Wears all black most of the time, is a sorceress, has an ancient, evil, extradimensional demon for a dad, and comes from an alternate reality that got wiped out by said dad.
>>2812065It's all about how it's written
>>2812060Well if it makes you feel better I definitely like how this quest is going. And if we're talking waifus this may be the one time anons will go for starfire which is neat. Plus this a way different powerset than most of us are used to having and I like it, it's definitely a good excuse to read up on interesting animals.

“Go help Superboy, you’ve handled Mirror Master before, right?” You say, inching closer to Cheshire“Alright, just don’t mess up newbie.” Speedy yells, hauling ass to the rear of the museum.“Finally some alone time, don’t you hate it when people just butt in,” Cheshire says, reaching behind her back. “Though to be honest, I wouldn’t have minded a three-way with the two of you.”“All the innuendos. Jeez, you’re going to make me blush Jade.” You say, continuing to inch forward, “Are you trying to embarrass me to death.”“Oh no Marton, if I were trying to embarrass you, I’d remind you that you don’t have your costume on and have been transforming into animals for how long now?” Cheshire continues, definitely now having something in her palm>Turn back into a bull and charge her>Don’t get close to her, turn into sasquatch and throw some displays at her instead>Turn into a T-Rex and swat her with your tail>Write in

“Well, might as well go big,” you say, taking up your words literally. Your arms stay where they are length wise, but the rest of your body just expands until your head almost meets the ceiling, while your new tails blocks off most of the entrance.“Shit.” Cheshire has time to say, before you bat her into another wall, her body going son fast that she lodged herself in there like an arrowhead. Behind you a wave of security guards and uniformed police officers surround the two of you. Their guns are pointed at both of you. Twelve in all. “Freeze, lay down on the ground,” A nervous police officer yells. “As a human!”>Turn into a human and assure them you’re Changeling>Turn into a fly and escape>Tell them you’re Changeling as a dinosaur>If you’ll excuse me, my friends need my help (turn into a hawk and fly away)>Write in

>>2813698Yes, plus you had hit her multiple times throughout this. It's just that she fought back well.
>>2813686>>Turn into a human and assure them you’re Changeling"Is Mirror Master still around? I got two buddies going after him and I wanna help."
>>2813686>“Freeze, lay down on the ground,” A nervous police officer yells. “As a human!”Surprised they don't recognize us, since I'd assume this is where us and Animal Man are most active. Then again, I guess a T-Rex showing up in a museum would make anyone nervous.
>>2813718They know who Animal Man is. You aren't famous at all.
>>2813727Reminder you took the "I've been doing this for four months" option.
>>2813731Ah, right, Neophyte perk.
You start shifting into a human, raising your hands above your head. “Relax, I’m Changeling, Animal Man’s sidekick?”“Animal Man has a sidekick?” One officer asks. “Where’s your costume.”“Didn’t really have time to put it on,” You say frowning. “But look at my jacket.”One cop raises a hand. “I remember him, he helped bust some dog fighting ring a couple weeks ago. I helped put some of the perps in the backseat, but I didn’t know he transformed into animals.”Another cop butts in, “Yeah I remember the Green Arrow, Speedy, Animal Man, and him taking out some guy who was part vegetable, part man, and part mineral a while back too.” “See?” You say shrugging your shoulders, the cops had all dropped her away.The cops swarmed to overwhelm and apprehend Cheshire, right as they lift her up. “Wait!”“What?” One of the cops yells back, pushing her head down. “Look lady...”“I was just wondering if I could get Marton’s number.” Cheshire says, suddenly laughing. “I’ll be out soon, and I was wondering if he’d like to continue where we left off.”“Shut up.” That cop continues, pulling her away. “This is why you want to wear your outfit kid, the nuts will want to keep fighting you.“I don’t think that’s what she wants.” You say softly, “Hey you know where Mirror Master is?”“Yeah Speedy and Superman’s son almost got the bastard, but he slipped away. They got the mace back though. Thing was worth about ten million.”You whistle, and start slipping to the back of the museum. The few patron and staff that remained pulled out their cellphones and starting taking shots of you. Whispering and even a few waving or cheering.When you finally see them, you notice just how different Roy’s outfit was now. No cap, all ‘tactical’ like Batman. It was also only now that you noticed that Conner’s black T had the Superman Emblem on it. Well, even he was wearing a costume you guess.“Good job with Cheshire,” Roy says bitterly. “But Mirror Master was the bigger threat and had the item in question. Why did you leave him with the guy greener than grass rookie?”>Was busy trying to get laid, I didn’t notice it was a robbery until I was tangled up with Cheshire.>It was a heat of the moment decision.>I think you don’t realize how hard that girl hits man >Hey a bad guy is in custody and we got the Rustam’s Mace.

>>2813777>It was a heat of the moment decision.

>>2813777>"Because I was already tangled up with Chesire (Figuratively), and Mirror Master was heading in Conner's direction."
>>2813777>>Hey a bad guy is in custody and we got the Rustam’s Mace. It looks like it was win, win to me.
“Hey a bad guy is in custody and we got Rustam’s Mace. It looks like it was a win to me.” You say happily. “Let’s see just how long she stays is custody, or you can go without a mob of stalkers. What were you thinking about the no costume thing?” Roy whispers angrily. “I’ll deal with that when I cross that bridge. Most people in the police force don’t even know how Changeling existed man.” You say crossing your arms, “Though maybe I should bail now because my face winds up on the news.”“I’ll make the police statement then,” Roy says with a huff. “Seriously though good job. You’re new at this and you proved you don’t have to do the sidekick act if you don’t want to. If you ever want to ditch the kiddie league or the sidekick gig, you got my number.”“Well, let’s go!” You say to Conner, pointing to the rear exit. After about a half hour, on a bus back to your neighborhood, Superboy finally speaks up. “I’m sorry I left you there with Jade...I thought you two, were you know...”>So did I man>I should be thanking you. I might just have gotten my Catwoman>Well, just don’t let it happen again>Are you serious? You read the room right, don’t be so down on yourself>Write in
>>2813941>>Are you serious? You read the room right, don’t be so down on yourself
>>2813941>Are you serious? You read the room right, don’t be so down on yourself
>>2813941>>Are you serious? You read the room right, don’t be so down on yourself"If anything I'm the idiot for crushing on a villain. Maybe I just like bad girls? But hey, what are the chances of me hooking up with another villain outside of her costume a second time?"
>>2813941>Are you serious? You read the room right, don’t be so hard on yourself.
“Are you serious? You read the room right, don’t be so down on yourself man.” You say.Conner looks at for a moment and then at the seat in front of him. “You don’t understand, I heard things under her breath that tipped me off that she was robbing the place...but at the time I misjudged and thought she wanted to, ugh,”“It’s called a double entendre and I’m left wondering what she meant too,” You say with a sigh, "If anything I'm the idiot for crushing on a villain. Maybe I just like bad girls? But hey, what are the chances of me hooking up with another villain outside of her costume a second time?" “Astronomically low,” Superboy replies coldl, but smiling. “Then again, I thought she liked you. And maybe she does. I don’t get it. Still overall, I had fun going to museum.”>Hey day’s not even over, want to play some basketball when we get back?>Hey day’s not even over, want to go to that barcade I mentioned?>A little fight crazy are you?>We didn’t get to see any of the good stuff though>Write in

>>2814004>Hey day’s not even over, want to go to that barcade I mentioned?>But hey, what are the chances of me hooking up with another villain outside of her costume a second time?" We're going to hook up with another villain outside of her costume, aren't we? Might even run into one at the Barcade, if it hasn't been levelled or something.
Well since Cass is off the table, I guess having Cheshire be our Catwoman is the next best thing when it comes to ninja waifus.>>2814004>Hey day’s not even over, want to go to that barcade I mentioned?
>>2814022You will, but not yet. You'll meet one villain before she becomes one and another out of uniform in a awhile. Not at the barcade though.
>>2814034>before she becomes oneAny chance of preventing that clusterfuck?
>>2814050Yes? Sort of.
“Sometimes shit will just catch you by surprise man. Doesn't help she probably though the fight was foreplay,” You say, shrugging. “Hey day’s not even over. Want to go that barcade I mentioned.”“Sure, I still have that twenty your uncle lent me,” Superboy says.You take the stop after the next and then walk around across a street lined with dozens of tall buildings that didn’t quite make it to skyscraper level and long stores, pharmacies, and theaters for about three miles. Luckily the sun was already starting to set, so the heat really didn’t get to you. Neither did the people on it, no one going to you for an autograph or pulling their phone out to take a picture. Looks like the robbery didn’t really set the news on fire or people largely kept their mouths shut.The barcade was already full though, and you had to wait about fifteen minutes before you could even get in. The faux 8 bit Mario rip off neon sign seemed to really be mocking you when it tipped it’s hat. When the two of you really do get in, you avoid the bar entirely and head for the arcade machines in back.What to play….>Play Street Fighter IV!!!>Play Air Hockey>Play Metal Slug>Play “Bowling” >Fuck it, get a drink
>>2814079>Play Metal SlugDon't think we have much of a chance of beating Superboy in Air Hockey, Street Fighter IV or Bowling.
>>2814079>Play Street Fighter IV!!!We are clearly a Dan Hibiki main like a true veteran, we enjoy the challenge and the sadistic pleasure of beating our opponents with the joke of the game.

>>2814079>>Play Metal Slug
“Hey that Metal Slug cabinet is free.” You say pointing a little to the left of you. Conner and you both feed your twenties into a change machine and then the fun starts. You choose Metal Slug because you’d think this dude’s computer brain would beat you in a minute tops.Sure enough he dies a lot in the beginning even with you there. The half way into the game, he beats the remaining levels and bosses without taking a hit even from the weird status debuffers that turn you into a mummy or morbidly obese. You then remember Metal Slug has pattern reckonition play a huge factor in it’s success. Still that’s only a couple bucks down with as good as Conner is at this, at least you weren’t playing against him.“Well you were right about the camel being a pretty effective vehicle actually, but the best weapon power up was actually...”You sigh, “Let’s save it for the next game...man...” You clearly see Jade at the bar, with a man in a weird colorful costume and an older, tall blonde man with bulging muscle. Conner eventually follows your gaze, and gets in a pose you know that looks exactly like a charge.Jade turns in your direction and after two seconds, smiles and just waves at you two. “Hi! You know if you just stood there like I wanted, I would have been released earlier and just given you two a lift. Come on, I’ll pay for a drink”>Wait, you’re out on bail?>Just ignore her and go your own way.>Approach her and join her>Who are you’re friends.>Write in
>>2814233>Wait, you’re out on bail?>God, our legal system is shit
>>2814233>Wait, you’re out on bail?
>>2814252Haha, this works.
>>2814233>Wait, you’re out on bail?Did they finally install a revolving door?
>>2814233>>Wait, you’re out on bail?
>>2814233>>Wait, you’re out on bail?"Buying alcohol for a minor? I knew you were a bad girl but that's just diabolical."
>>2814233>Wait, you're out on bail?
“Wait...you’re out on bail? Did they finally install a revolving door.” You ask.“Marton, what makes you think I could even be charged? They held me for questioning for a few hours, true, but my lawyer explained to them that even if they could admit your testimony, which they couldn’t, there was nothing tying me to Mirror Master or the robbery.” Jade says, taking a sip of some blue slushy drink.“But the Sai...” Conner interjects“Self-Defense, I do have a permit for them” Jade says, playing with the umbrella in her drink, “You’re lucky you’re cute and I’m not pressing charges, kid.”“So why are you here?” You ask, “You looking for another throw down?. Looking to kill me?”The three of them laugh at that, while Conner and you exchange looks.“We’re professionals kid, we know you were just doing your job. Besides Trickster and Mirror Master don’t kill. Part of their whole code.” The blonde muscleman says, with a dismissive smirk on his face. “Come on, stop being pouty and have a drink with me.” Jade says, tapping the barstool next to her.“I knew you were evil, but offering alcohol to a minor? How diabolical!” You answer>Sure>Sure, but can Conner join us?>Nah, maybe when you’re not with your ‘friends’>Nah, catch you later
>>2814353>Nah, catch you later
>>2814353>Gimme a sasparilla barkeep>One for Connor too
>>2814353>>Nah, maybe when you’re not with your ‘friends’"C'mon Connor, let's get some burgers at my favorite joint nearby. Hopefully the entire Legion of Doom isn't there for a birthday party or something."
>>2814353>Sure, but can Conner join us?
>>2814353>SureMan this weird
“Sure, Conner wait for me a bit.” You say, walking towards Jade calmly.“Are you serious?” Conner says, putting a hand over his face. “Fine, I’m keeping an eye on you though.”“I can assure you, he won’t regret this.” The blonde giant says, frowning. “You really think I’d break my code or do something stupid like start a fight here? I’m insulted.”You take your seat next to Jade. “Sarsaparilla, please.”The bartender looks at you for a while, but Jade nods at him, an amused smile on her face. “Ordering a soft drink when you’re offered a drink by a pretty girl, my you really are a boy scout.” Jade says, “You know a power like yours would be overlooked at the Justice League or whatever kid team they’re making for you, but thieves or the League of Shadows? I’m struggling to think of a more useful power.”“Really a recruiting pitch?” You ask, taking a sip of your soda.“No, just making an observation.” Jade says, hair brushing against your shoulder. “Though, I have to wonder why you even pulled what you did today. It was just a robbery, wasn’t your business or anything big.”“Because it was the right thing to do,” You answer, a little insulted. “You were stealing a priceless artifact.”“And they stole it from Iran. I know ‘It belongs in a museum’ is a popular line, but it really belongs to the community it was stolen from,” Jade says, leaning on her hand, her eyes gazing into yours. “Just because something is illegal, doesn’t mean it’s wrong right?>Yeah, I guess you’re right.>I guess>How do I know what you’re saying is true?>No, you’re wrong
>>2814427>Forgive me I take your words with a grain of salt.
>>2814427>And I'm sure you two were planning on liberating it with purely altruistic intentions.
>>2814434this is fine
>>2814427"So You and Mirror Master just wanted to return it to it's homeland out of kindness, and not sell it to some rich collector?"
“And I'm sure you two were planning on liberating it with purely altruistic intentions,” You say, a taking a deep breath. “Forgive me I take your words with a grain of salt.”Jade’s smile gets bigger, more Cheshire like “On any other day you’d be right. Tonight though? I was doing one of my two good deeds of the year.”“Two?” You ask. “Please don’t tell me I have to worry about you causing more havoc in my town.”“I’m afraid so,” Jade says, face almost on top of yours now. “Our client and our last co-worker are going to be here any minute. Would you please stay and here their pitch? I promise you, you’ll be glad you did.”The blonde giant suddenly moves forward to intercept two people right out of peripheral vision. “You’re late. I don’t like that.”“You failed in your mission, I don’t like that. Two sidekicks and half stopped you. What gives.” The voice sounds somewhat familiar. It sounded like...one of Buddy’s hippy friends. “You could say goodbye to Iran or Qurac EVER refusing deportation for any of you after this mess up. Don’t know why you we should trust you with this, An-”“Hey it was your sidekick who got in the way. Besides this isn’t our last shot at it, not by a long shot.” The blonde says annoyed, “But hey, just to make sure there are no hard feelings, we’ll take half of what was agreed upon. Respobility did fall on our end. We’re professionals, we get that.”“Half. But I paid for a dozen SNK cabinets. Those don’t come cheap!” The man in the funny suit cried, literally.“Well, most of us are, anyway.” The blonde man says, looking back who you now knew was the Trickster.“Yeah, sorry my nephew got your daughter arrested. I honestly didn’t think he’d pick at Musem to waste his time in. Kid’s going to grow up to be anti social nerd I swear.” An extremely apologetic voice and familiar voice says.Jade stands up, pulling you with her...head first into a compromising position to say the least. “In wouldn’t say that, he’s really quite suave.” Buddy’s jaw drops, “Marton?”>What the hell Buddy!?>Are you serious? Are you a super villian or something?>Hey bartender, how about a whiskey, I’m going to need something hard.>Wait, you’re heroes Jade? >Write in
>>2814538>What the hell Buddy!?
>>2814538>What the hell Buddy!?>Hey bartender, how about a whiskey, I’m going to need something hard.
>>2814538>>Hey bartender, how about a whiskey, I’m going to need something hard.Damn it, Buddy.
>>2814538>Hey bartender, how about a whiskey, I’m going to need something hard.
>>2814538>What the hell Buddy?
>>2814538>What the hell Buddy!?I'm so gosh darned steamed right now that if I turned into a crab right now I'd be red, and you wouldn't like me when I'm red.
“What the hell Buddy!?!” You almost scream, “Bartender, going to have a whiskey. I need something hard.”“Well, that’s why I tried getting you to go here last night,” Buddy says, hand cradling the back of his head. “Look, this isn’t what it looks like. Well actually it is, just why it looks like what it looks like.”“And how’s that?” Conner says, stepping behind your uncle. He was furious. “You’re working for the bad guys.”“With, not for,” Buddy corrects. “Just...listen you two. I have a good explanation.”“Let me answer,” says a man you remember to be named David Santea, “I’m the founder of a radical leftist group called Fair Weather. Fuck it, we’re Eco-terrorists, if I’m going to be honest. We mostly do environmental work, like sabotaging logging or oil companies. I found out something big, something that’s going to require more than Buddy to stop. I own a tenth of the property in this city and a bunch of tech patents, so I’m worth a little less than two billion. That let’s me hire...specialists in cases like this.”“What’s so big that you’d hire super villains.” Conner asks, his rage redirected.David turns, his ponytail flapping in the air, “A rogue government black site is making a super smallpox virus that was originally meant to take out livestock, but is now just going to sell something that can kill all plant and animal life that isn’t human. A biological weapon against every international treaty is being cooked in my backyard and I don’t think ANYONE who take that lightly. The League won’t or can’t help, so I found reliable people who would.”>Why won’t the League help?>Okay, I take that Buddy. What the hell still though. Why is the government doing anything about this then.>But what you’re doing still is illegal right?>Alright, good pitch. I’m in, if you’ll have me>Write in
>>2814656>Why won’t the League help?
>>2814656>But what you’re doing still is illegal right?
>>2814656>Why won’t the League help?>Okay, I take that Buddy. What the hell still though. Why isn't the government doing anything about this then?
>>2814656>Why won’t the League help?>Okay, I take that Buddy. What the hell still though. Why is the government doing anything about this then.
>>2814656>>Why won’t the League help?My bullshit senses are tingling, but that might just be because it's DC in weird mode.
>>2814679This is because it's DC in the fairly early stages. I'll get more into it with the actual answer, but the Justice League doesn't want to start a war with the United States government.
>>2814656>Okay, I take that Buddy. What the hell still though. Why is the government doing anything about this then.
“Okay, I take it back Buddy. What the hell though? Won’t what the League help? Hell, why won’ the government do anything?” You ask, utterly incredulous“The Justice League won’t help because it’s utterly out of their jurisdictional. Even if it’s a rogue operation, it would be considered an act of war against the United States, thanks to Oslo Treaty and the Delhi Accords. And the government would take it very seriously, it’s only because of our popularity that the United States tolerates us to begin with. When Superman came onto the scene, for the first in a long time, congress passed budget cuts. No one saw the reason for it anymore and were getting pissed off. That kinda made them big enemies.” Buddy says shaking his head. “And ugh, Superman doesn’t really want to fly into the White House and punch out the president.”Cheshire snorts. “And the government won’t act because it’d be admission of some pretty serious wrongdoing. More importantly because of a motto the CIA takes to heart, ‘Better the devil you know, then you don’t.’ They know both the seller and the buyer and have both on a leash. Take them off it and it would cause chaos. Now there’s a good chance that chaos might end up a good thing and no one will fill that vacuum, but it will still smack against the status quo in the process. Hurting assets and intelligence gathering. Big sunk cost fallacy really.”She turns around towards you, drapping herself on you. “So what about it Marton. Want to be bad for a night not to long away?”>Yes>Sure, but I want some assurances you won’t kill anyone or steal that virus>No.>Write in
>>2814759>Sure, but I want some assurances you won’t kill anyone or steal that virusMaybe less so the assurance they won't kill, expecting them to not use lethal force if absolutely necessary would be silly, but we do need some kind of guarantee they won't just take the virus for themselves.
>>2814759>Sure, but I want some assurances you won’t kill anyone or steal that virus
Last response of the night. We won't deal with right away (Happy Harbor is next, followed by Bane/Kobra, and then this, if you choose it)
“Okay I want some assurances here, before I agree.” You say.Jade, finger strokes your cheek. “Like what? Not to kill, we’ll try not to, we like this go nice and clean too. But this can end up as a life or death situation, and I’ll cut down anyone who wants do the same to me, if I have to.”“Fair enough, but under no circumstances are you to take the virus.” You say.“Hmm, the virus tempting,” The blonde man says, crossing his arms. “But David here already made me promise that when we signed onto this job.“What do you take us Rogues for anyway? We aren’t arms dealers! Normally anyway and not for crimes against humanity stuff anyway.” Trickster adds, sullenly.Jade lets go off and towards her friends then. “It’s a date then. We have some things to discuss with your uncle and David then. Have a nice night you too, trust me Marton I will call. And about the job too. Night’!You watched as the five of them walked away. Cheshire, of course, seemed know you would and walked with an exaggerated swagger and jiggle of her butt, to mock you, tease you, flirt with you, or all three. You couldn’t get a good read on her. Not at like the blonde giant, whom you could just smell the blood on. An ice cold killer, if there ever was one. You were going to be working with them, and at least a couple Rogues, thieves with special tricks up their sleeves. Wonderful.>End

Personally I think the Rogues are pretty swell all things considered. At least they have some high standards as far as villains go.I have reserves about breaking into a government facility and using animal shape shifting powers, yeah, I'm sure NO ONE is going to guess its us. I hate The Feds and their shady bullshit as much as the next guy, but this is suicide.
>>2815024To be fair, while I’m not terribly familiar with the Rogue’s gallery of DC, I’m sure there’s a goodly number of animal villains, or villains who can transform into animals, or control animals. We probably aren’t THAT identifiable.
>>2815023It's a weird situation. The Government will know who you are, but to arrest you would admit they knew about this rogue operation and did nothing and also got punked by a sidekick the JL and co could disavow as an idealistic kid and mentor extremely easily.
>>2815953This is where an alter ego would come in handy. We just make a bigfoot our "primary" form and call ourselves Bigfoot Bill.
I'm actually going to call this thread done, can someone archive it. Game resumes monday
