"you know batman, this is kind of getting boring" Joker says over a loud speaker as an explosion goes off, blowing up the remaining part of the building batman was in. "it's always the same thing, I find some helpless people, strap a bomb to them, then you swoop in at the last second and stop me." he continues as Harley fires a bazooka at batman, who dodges the rocket and glides to where the joker and Harley are standing. as the batman lands, Joker sinks a knife into his chest. "WHY ISN'T THIS FUN ANYMORE!" he screams as Batman punches him off and pulls the knife out.
"Maybe I've knocked some of the crazy out of you." batman says throwing a batarang at harley, who the joker pushes out of the way. "was that remorse joker? you really have changed."
"that wasn't remorse, that was protection, I need her alive for the next phase in the plan" joker says "as for you.." he says running at batman, shooting his piwstals as he went. batman dodges each shot and grabs the joker, he hits him hard on the back of the head, knocking him out. Commisioner gordon sends cops in to grab the joker as batman rushes after Harley.
Batman steps into the room Harley had just fled, he runs to the window only to hear a sound from behind him, a baby crying.
"ah oh mistah B, looks like you have a choice to make. this rooms is rigged with explosives that will go off as soon as I finish talking, or as soon as you jump out that window. there is also an Orphan in this room with ya too. me and Mistah J was doing experiments on the little tyke and he failed to live up to my hubbies expectations. so here's the deal you can chase aftah me and leave the kid to die, or you can save him and let me go." she says. batman looks out the window and she is already gone. "3...2..." she starts counting as batman grabs the little baby and jumps out the window the whole room is engulfedi in flames.
"Damn...Alfred, can you track the helicopter?"Batman says
"no sir, they have blocked our signal sir." Batman says.
"the Joker really went all out just to let harley escape, I don't buy it. this is big Alfred, we need to catch up with her as soon as possible. what did she mean by experiments?" he says looking at the child. "Alfred, how likely are people to believe Bruce Wayne adopted a child?"
"well sir, you have been charitable before, but I do not think people see you as a child person master Bruce. although I suppose it wouldn't be the first time a rich person surprised the world." Alfred says.
"it is only temporary. until I can find out what the Joker was doing with this kid. and there is something else." he says
"what's that sir?" Alfred asks, curious.
"if this child is the failed experiment, then Harley must have a child who passed." Batman says.
Bruce Wayne grabs the young boys leg as it flys towards his face. "More power, you are holding back to much." Bruce says. "Alan, I need you to focus, if you can't control you strength without losing all of it, then you can't fight alongside me." he says as the boy sends another punch his way, he easily dodges it, but as he does Alan brings a kick towards his fave, Bruce had already had his hand out to block, but gets knocked backwards into the wall. "alright, that was too much strength." Bruce says
"Well what do you expect! I have super strength, why can't I use it! superman uses his all the time." Alan yells.
"Superman doesn't use his full strength, he knows how to use a percent of his strength to leave a criminal out cold, but otherwise unharmed." Batman says "he can do that because he trained." Bruce says getting up and whipping his shoulders clean. "alright, again, this time really focus."
A man walks into a warehouse smoking a cigar. He took a couple of pulls and stomps the cigarette out. A voice comes out the shadows "did you bring the weapons Vigo?" The voice asked startling the man.
(Vigo)"Jesus boss you scared me...its times like this the bat shows up."
Hush steps out the shadows. ..."don't worry I set up these deals while he was busy dealing with the Jokers rampage murder spree.
The man with the white suit and the black mask permanently grafted onto his face.
Vigo smiles as he snaps his fingers and his men bring out crates with guns...in it and opened it up.
Black mask grabbed the guns...top of the line quality. ... (hush)"good. ...just what I wanted adamantium rounds 500 scope...and the magnums are to my liking as well" he says.
Black mask laughed as he launched a mini rocket launcher that destroyed a wall...."sweet Vigo. ..I'll take it all. .including the money" he says pointing a gun at vigo.
(Vigo)"WHOA...DO YOU KNOW WHAT I WENT THROUGH TO GET THOSE WEAPONS FOR YOU AND YOUR NOT GOING TO PAYME" he sscreams as red dots appear on blackmask....
He is clearly surprised as his men pull out guns and Vigo's me come out the shadows.
"I knew you'd stiff me now give me the money or we all die today" he says.
Black mask is upset but has someone with a duffle bag of money toss the bag but someone drops from one of the containers and grabs the bag of money.immediately all guns point to him...as he shuffled a deck of cards.
(Man)"I was set to go to the casino...its my game night and you fools ruined it" he says wearing all black as the men look at him.
(Vigo)"Listen you must be dumb as nails...dropping down and taking my money now who the hell are you and how'd you get in here and I'll shoot you in the head" he says.
(Henchmen)"playing cards must be a joker wannabe" he says chuckling and the man shuffled the deck and a card flies out and explodes by the henchmans face with knockout gas as he drops guns cock.
(Man)"whoa never say that name to me...there are no jokers in my deck...I prefer the name Vegas. .and I have been up there casing this place waiting on this deal. See I'm trying to be a crime fighter but dear old dad has other plan and I just turned 18 so I'm going through that rebellious stage so long story short this deal is not going down" he says.
Black mask claps...."I could care less I'm taking my guns and my money...SHOOT HIM" he shouted.
Birdarangs fly and knock out some of the guns as nightwing drops down as well and begins beating up the gunmen.
(Hush)"Nightwing...this ain't bludhaven" he shouts as guns are fired ...Vegas throws more cards knocking out more henchmen. ... (Vegas)"I got black mask" he says chasing after him running out the warehouse.
(Nightwing)"VEGAS...DON'T" he says but come under heavy gunfire...so he has to take cover.
Vegas runs after black mask and throws a card cutting his leg causing him to fall.
Black mask pulls out a magnum and starts firing wildly but Vegas dodges until black mask runs out of bullets.
(Vegas)"its over" he says as he gets closer and black mask laughs as Vegas is blindsided by a punch by black masks main henchmen causing him to fly back a couple of feet.
what the hell I didn't even hear him coming. ..and such strength. He thought getting up and flinging cards at the guy but he catches them an breaks them.
"Well someone has been eating their wheaties" he jokes as he charged at the guy and punched him twice in the face making him stumble slightly but Vegas noticed his face wasn't solid. "Clayface" he says as clayface grabbed him by the neck and began to smother him with clay.
(Black mask)"thought I wouldn't have an ace for the bat" he says...."kill him"
A helicopter comes taking black mask.
Vegas is dying but is trying to pull away until birdarangs fly into clayface and freeze him...causing him to yell out in pain and shrink away and release Vegas.
Clayface looks at nightwing..."I'm not going back on ice not for black mask" and melts away
Nightwing checks on Vegas.... (nightwing)"brody...brody you ok" he says
"Yea I'm fine ...I was caught off guard.
(Nightwing)"why didn't you use it..." he asked
"Look dick I'm my own person I may be the son of Jason Blood doesn't mean I can do everything he can" he says as they leave
A boy was standing on a building near the shipping yard watching the whole battle. he watched as Vegas and Nightwing fought Blackmask, and watched nightwing take care of clayface. he punched a wall, breaking it easily. "Mother, this is NOT what you promised me it would be." the boy said.
"Calm down Jay, how was I to know Birdbrain and shuffle-head was gonna show up instead of Batman and ya brother." Harley said through a mic. There is plenty of crime Tonight baby, don't get so upset, you know mamma doesn't like it when her little guy gets upset."
"Sorry Mother, I am just getting Impatient. I want to start causing trouble, but you said I need to see the failure batman stole...my Twin, before father will let me do anything fun." Jay says.
"It's for the best Bubby, Mister J has plans for you, but he didn't expect your Twin brother to survive the experiments or for batman to get ahold of him." Harley says.
"BUT IF HE IS A FAILURE THEN I CAN BEAT HIM!" Jay yells. "he will be nothing to me. especially with batman training him, the goodiegoodie is probably teaching him not to kill, he will be weak, he will hold back, and for what? it will only make me kill him faster."
"we don't know how much power he has Jay, now come back to the hideout Immediately, one of daddys henchys will catch a glimpse of the bat, we have one hidden amongst every crime lord and kingpin in the city, the bat will strike eventually, and one day he will bring your brother along. then we attack." Harley says.
Jay pulls the mic off his ear and puts it in his shirt pocket. no use wearing it, he will see her in a second anyway. he turns towards amusement mile and runs off the side of the building at lightning fast speeds. he is half way across the city in a matter of seconds.
Dick comes out of the kitchen and tossed Brody and ice-pack. Brody catches it and puts it against his cheek.....
"Brody what the hell do you think your doing... i agreed to help train you as a favor to your father, so when i say don't go after black mask...Don't go after black mask" he says.
Brody shrugs... "I thought i had him, how was i suppose to know he hired clayface" he replied
"And whats this about you going to a casino nonsense your too young to go to a casino Brody" he says
Brody smiles..."Its my persona Vegas... and besides i have played a couple of card games hell when my father wanted me to learn his way of life he made me spend time with John Constantine... all he did was gamble and kinda got me into it... and besides Vegas seems grown up" he says
Dick shrugs... "look im here to teach you discipline... as a favor again to your father... i left gotham for a reason but i can't let you get yourself killed" he says
Brody smiles... "Yes and i appreciate it, look you know ever since seeing batman a regular man do what he does this is the path i wanted to take, no shortcuts my father taught me so much but I want to create my own path and this is how i'll do it" he says holding up a black playing card.
Dick looks at him and throws the card into a wall and it sticks to it but falls out. "Damn gadget... i need to spend more time with Victor ...matter fact you think my dad knows Mister terrific" he asked Dick
Dick just looks at him..."Just hurry up and get ready for training" he says
Brody looks at his cards...running after Nightwing "wait you know mister terrific don't you" he asked walking the into the gym room and Brody sees black canary.
He is instantly smitten. ...
(Nightwing)"you still make many mistakes I hold back training you but Dinah on the other hand" he says.
(Black canary)"if I break you then so be it I'm going to show you what someone who embraces their natural talent can do" she says getting in fighting stance.
Brody smiles "bring it on" he says charging at her he throws a punch and she sidesteps and knees him in the side. He endures and keeps his stance...he does a spin kick but canary ducks and does a sweep kick but Brody back flips and lands on his feet and throws some cards and canary uses her sonic voice and causes the cards to stop but the explode with a smoke screen. Honestly it was a little surprising.
(Brody)"I got you" he says getting behind her and throws a punch but she grabs him and tossed him over her shoulder as heggoes to counter she has her foot on his shoulder. ..."don't go for another card your being predictable" she says kicking him back.
Brody winced in pain as he fell to the ground. .. he got up though.
And canary punches him down. "For the record I'm holding back" she says as he wobbled to his feet and she charges at him and flips over him then kicks him straight in the chest sending him flying and knocking the wind out him.
"Ok...n..nno more" he says on one knee but canary releases her scream causing him to scream and grab his ears.
After the ringing stops..."you don't fight like you should. ..your trying to emulate and imitate batman...nightwing your weakening yourself" she says
Brody gets up..clearly agitated... "What do you mean they trained hard with proper training i should be able to do the same" he says.
(Canary)" it also takes natural talent also, batman and Nightwing fight crime the way they do because its their natural style it fits them best, the flipping the fighting style the projectiles...it is good that your learning different styles but make it your own and don't imitate" she says.
"im a metahuman so i fight like a metahuman i use my abilities to its fullest the ones i have and the ones i trained on maybe you should search your soul for who you really are" she says.
Brody wanted to reply but it was true he was inspired by Batman and Nightwing but to fight crime he had to find his own way to fight acting like batman or nightwing would only get him hurt like he did earlier with clayface.
