"Brain hook? This isn't the egyptian times anymore. We have things like technology now." Banner says. I can feel his grip tighten and I am pressed closer to him. His rising anger was giving off natural heat, and I welcomed it. I was freezing cold right now.
"Well the kid looks like he is gonna die, so let's just get this thing started." Tony laughs while he claps his hands together. Suddenly, I feel lightheaded. Before I know it, I have fainted.
Name: Sullivenn Isaac Droselmeyer (Just Venn is fine. NEVER Sully)
Alter Ego Name: Mad Hatter (previous), Judgment Day (will be given to by Apocalypse), Armageddon (will be given to by Darkseid), The Satirist (current)
Weight: 158 Lbs.
Power: A magnificent being whose origin of power is currently unknown, Venn has a massive supply of power because of his very mind. He seems to be able to take others’ power and use it as his own, as well as generate new ones that come from his brain – the most powerful thing anyone has seen.
History: It’s all just a fuzzy little mess in that wicked mind of Sully’s. Woops. I mean Venn. Ever since he was a child, he was known as the freak. He would predict things that hadn’t yet occurred. People that he hated were suddenly dropping dead. Then, the voices came. One stood out from the others though. It’s name was Psy (Sigh). Venn would start talking to himself (actually Psy) and then burst into laughter. Venn then started to talk to himself about destroying the world. Another voice that would come out of nowhere would tell Venn that he could do it. He could destroy the entire damn planet if he wanted to…and then create a new one. Frightened, Venn started bawling and saying that he no longer wanted to destroy the world and create a new one. But, the crying quickly turned into manic laughter. Worried, his parents decided to try out the psychiatrist. Things were going fine for the first couple of years of seeing the psychiatrist. But, Venn’s power was growing as his mind was. Venn ended up killing his psychiatrist, and then everyone else in the building. His family sent him to Arkham for this. Venn had a reason for killing all of them…but he would never tell his parents. It was because his psychiatrist would tell his parents that they needed to keep Venn for a week just to watch him. But what was really happening was that the psychiatrist would call in the military and expert scientists. They would cut his skull open and poke around at his mind, trying to figure out how he was doing what he was doing. This was going on from when Venn was nine until finally he killed all of them.
Delirium touched his head and began unscrewing the top, which amazingly poped off like a bottle cap. "ok, lets see....."she said pulling things out, like racoons and spoons and other things.
"enough with the comedy rutine De, the longer his brain is exposed the more likely he is to die." Tony said
"oh Alright...what am I looking for?" she said.
"this cell right here, you need to place this nanite on it, with it we can essentually read when a change is happening, and if the change is dangerous, a shoke will go through the nanite, temporarily shutting the brain cells activity, if I am right, one second of inactivity, should revert him to normal after any change."Tony said. "if I am wrong, we are essentually putting a 500,000,000 dollar peice of trash into his head that won't cause any harmful effects at all."
"and what if you are wrong about that?" she asked.
"then we preform surgery and get it the hell out of his head." tony said taking a swig of whiskey.
Delirium placed it onto the braincell in question and then screwed his head back on, there wasn't a cut mark or anything.
"the nanit doesn't lock up his powers, it monitors his powers. if a power appears we do not like, I need only send the info to the nanite, and anytime the form is coming on, the nanite will shock the brain." Tony said.
I couldn't help but laugh at Delirium, and I pat her head as I get to my feet. Banner hesitantly makes his way towards me, and I give him a short smile.
"Alright. Let's hope this thing works, huh?" I nervously chuckle, and Banner nods in agreement. He looks in my eyes, and I can feel the change coming. I begin staggering backwards, slamming into a table.
"I think now would be the time Tony." Banner states, taking multiple steps away.
"hold on."Tony said, he began typing into his computer. "alright just need to set it to automatically stop you from taking that form....and...." he hits the enter button and as he does it was obvious it had worked, as they all watched Venn twitch, a side effect from the shock through his brain. "Venn, did it work? are you ok?"
Bruce Wayne was visiting Arkham Asylum and to the public it seems like a good will charity thing Bruce Wayne going to speak to the youths of Arkham, the playboy still doing his part for society.
Bruce enters and the guards welcome him..."Hey Bruce" they say as they all say as they clap
"Hey Bruce thanks for giving us all work on behalf of all the guards thankyou again its because of you I can feed little Sallie Mae and the rest of my family" he says
Bruce nods "Your welcome Frank give my regards to Anna will you" he says with a short wave
To get to the ward with the youths Bruce and the guards have to pass through the ward for criminally insane they believed that this would help the youths straighten up if they saw their future in the many criminals.
They pass the jokers cell..."Well tickle me pink.. its Brucey...hey riddle me this bruce how many billionaire parents do you have to kill for their son to become a spoiled playboy...the answer is two..hahahaha" he says laughing maniacally
Bruce clenches his fist but remains calm
(Riddler) "Thats.. not even a riddle you crazed mime" he says upset that the joker used his line and butchered it as he kicks the plexi glass cell
(Two-Face) "No one cares nigma... about your little riddle like but can you monkeys shut that clown up" he says as the inmates begin to get restless as other insane inmate shout obscenities at Bruce as they pass through to the ward with the youths.
Bruce speaks to the young inmates although most of them don't care but he speaks to them one at a time as it is too dangerous to have Bruce Wayne in a room with insane youths even with guards there.
Finally the guards prepare to bring another youth inmate out...(Guard) "Ok Daws is next.. bring him out in a jacket this time" he says
(Guard 2) "Ok got it Mike" the other says
Mason A. Daws comes through in a straight jacket.. he sits down
(Masons Point of View)
I had came here for peace and quiet honestly, didn't know where else to go and this seemed like the best place to be even though im young getting in here was no problem but i will spare you the details. I fight a lot here though i must say a lot of posers who want to be the next king of crime in Gotham are in here but the thing is, you wouldn't have been caught or sent here if you had the makings to be a king of crime unless the bat put you here himself. If that lazy corrupt gotham pd put you here you should really re-evaluate your future in crime. Now they outfitted me with this jacket.. guess he came to see me, i don't care why he's here but i guess i'll here him out.
Bruce see's Mason.."Still in here I see" he says
(Mason) "What can I say im just a regular boy who is insane, since most people try to break out of here and i broke in you could say" I reply
"Cut the games, we both know your more then that" he says in a low voice
(Mason) "Why didn't the other guy come, black suit dressed like a bat" I ask
(Bruce) "Broad day and this couldn't wait Mason... she has re-appeared" he says
I freeze when he utters those words as i cringe, if the joker is a king of crime then his sister is definitely a Queen no a Tyrant .. as much trouble as she has caused and has never once set foot in Arkham.
"Mason...Mason" Bruce repeats as I had zoned out.
"Huh..yea...still not my problem" I say
(Bruce) "Thats not all.. we have all been seeing Delirium ever since Sulliven has been out" he says
(Mason) "Delirium.. i never seen her but i've heard inmates speaking to her, i guess she calls the shots but your saying this has been happening since weird eyes has been out" i say
(Mason) "I don't know much about the kid besides what he did to some inmates during the times both wards are together even mad the joker damn near pee his pants" he says
Bruce acknowledges that he knew what he was talking about but his electronic device that masked their conversation was almost at its limit..."look just get out of here tonight" Bruce says as he gets up to leave.
I relax as i am brought back to my cell and a couple of hours later the wards are mixed again ...I retreat in my book thinking of a way out.. well actually i have dozens but which will be the least invasive and won't hurt too many guards... ugh its such a hassle limiting myself especially when i know i can do great things.
(Bane) "Croc..you have it" he says sitting next to him as they eat the prison slop...as Killer Croc hands him some sauce packets as guards watch him with his electro shock collar and chains on as he gives the packets to Bane.
The guards make sure nothing is up but allow it.
I see one of the packets are slightly punctured and what is suppose to be ketchup is green liquid as Bane pockets the sauce packets. I immediately know what it is...VENOM...Bingo i have my way out, the question is.. are Croc and Bane going to do this alone.
Delirium looks at her wrist as if it had a watch on it. "oh, I gotta go. I will be back in a bit." she said smiling. she disappeared.
Delirium appeared in arkhem asylum, she always liked to go the arkhem during yard time. she was the most excited to be out there. all the asylum criminals where either working out or standing around discussing plans for escape. Delirium loved to listen in on their ideas and tell them if she thinks it might work or not. usually she is right. she was running around and accidentally bumbed into killer croc.
"HAY!...WHO BUMPED ME!" he yelled turning and without looking smacking her backwords with his tail. she flew backwords and hit a wall. "owie...that hurt." she said. when killer croc heard her voice he stopped dead his expression went from anger to fear. "De...Delirium, I had heard from joker you where somewhere else...I didn't think you'd be here today." he said he got down on all fours and started begging forgivness.
"it's ok roughy skin, you didn't really hurt me to much. in fact I don't even remember it." she said then the wall she had smashed into was fixed as if she hadn't been thrown into it.
I'll just bide my time... hmm why is killer croc praying like that..no he's apologizing...must be talking to that delerium person or entity" i thought
Bane gets up and hits a random inmate for no reason and then another starting a little pseudo riot... guards run and grab their weapons and turn on some of the inmates subjugation collars.. as many of them hit the ground in pain...Killer croc falls but he is use to the pain by now...
(Killer croc) "Bastards... i wasn't even involved" he roared
Some inmates come running ntmy way crazed as usual just looking for someone to beat up to get their frustration out...a lot of them took it out on us younger inmates the weak ones...
I still have my straight jacket on ...the guards know not to allow me use of my hands but i jump up fairly high in the air and backflip kick one of them into a table then sweep kick the next, one of the larger inmates tries to capitalize and punch me but i bunny hop in the air and tuck my legs to my abdomen kinda like a ball and he cracks his fingers against my shins and the force sends me rolling luckily i was curled up..."Ahhh.. you" he whines in pain... but then the guards settle everyone down and hit bane with a taser as they bring him and shove him in his cell.
Soon the yard is evacuated...and im brought to my cell...."Decent work out..." i think
I lay down...after about four hours i hear a rumbling sound..."That did not take long" i say
Bane had gotten a small supply of venom and has been hording them in special packets but he finally had enough to put in his veins with a makeshift syringe...as his muscles expand and shirt rips ...he busts out the cell designed for him... and the guards sound the alarm but bane runs through them opening some cells unintentionally but other inmates escape....
He makes his way to crocs cell and breaks it open and rips off the electro collar
(Croc) "took you long enough..." he says as he starts his own rampage
I take a deep breath... Guess its my turn.
"Well, I think I need to get going. I should probably head back into my world." I smile at Banner and Tony.
"Really?" Banner almost seemed upset. I place a hand on his shoulder and nod, and then grin. "Hey. Don't worry. I'll visit." My attention goes to Tony. "Thanks again for the...whatever it is you put in my head. Just so long as it doesn't explode and lead to my untimely death."
He snickers at what I had said, and then I leave the building. Though, Fury had been watching me the entire time, as were the guards.
I had returned to the same forest as earlier, heading towards the desert. That's where I had woken up, so there has to be some way home from that location. Otherwise, I really wasn't sure.
"Sullivenn. Is it?" A bellowing voice comes from nowhere. I glance around, and then when I look forward again a towering figure stands in front of me. My eyes widen as they take in information, and my heart skips a beat. My hands form fists as I straighten myself out.
"Apocalypse." I grumble under my breath. He releases a deep laugh, rumbling the ground. "What do you want Apocalypse?"
"You." He simply answers. I arch a brow, clearly confused. Then, it comes to me and I shake my head.
"Come on Sullivenn. You have ultimate power. Join me. You shall be Judgment Day. You shall be the very thing that this planet fears!" Apocalypse begins, his eyes sparking with thoughts. Bad thoughts.
"No way. There's no way." I snarl, my lips curling and my nose scrunching.
"You will one day. Either you'll join me or you'll surpass me. And when that time comes, every universe will tremble beneath you and only those worthy will bow. The rest…" Apocalypse doesn’t finish, but instead bursts into laughter.
"NO!" I shout. But before I can say anything else, there's a loud buzzing sound.
I look around, and realize that I'm on top of a building. In Gotham. My shoulders relax and I sigh, glad to finally be home. Tony had fixed me a new suit, though it still had that Mad Hatter look to it. Banner had called me a Satire. It had a ring to it…The Satirist.
I pull out my cell phone, glad to see that I was finally getting a signal in this world. Must be that this phone from this world…only works in this world. I dial Bruce’s number, and he is quick to answer: “Venn!” He actually sounded happy. That’s quite the change. “Are you okay? Where did you go? My tracker didn’t have a sig” –
I cut him off right there. “Tracker? Never mind. Answer that another time. I’ve got a crazy story for you, but it’s too long for this moment. What has been going on since I left?”
The bitter night air stings my face, and I look down at the streets below. I must be at least a hundred feet above ground. Finally, Bruce answers. “Joker and the others are still in Arkham. Not sure for how long, though. It’s a good thing you came back.”
There’s a moment of silence, and then Bruce unexpectedly says, “I missed you.”
“Please don’t get all mushy on me Bruce. I’m actually guessing you’re Batman right now?” I reply, but can’t help but smile at what he had said. That was the first time I head the word ‘missed.’
“Yeah. I am. And I also have to get going. Things are escalating at Arkham.” He sounds like himself again, almost emotionless. I chuckle, and then hang up, the phone vanishing in my hat.
"Sounds like fun." I smirk before cracking my knuckles. I AM the king of Arkham after all.

I appear on top of the Arkham Asylum main building, and glance around. This place probably felt the most like home than any other. In the pit of my stomach, I knew that this is where I belonged. This is where I should be for my entire life.
With a deep breath, I look up at the dreary sky. The atmosphere couldn't be more depressing. There are several sounds that my ears pick up, most of which are coming from inside. But I know that they'll be outside soon enough.
