Joker walked back and forth in his Office, the managers office of the fun house he had stolen so many years ago. he was impatient, he decided to run through the check list agian incase he messed up. "ok, I stole the Nanites from Lex that had the speedster DNA and Flying DNA in them, had them unfrozen so they would be ready for use, then I...wait, what was next?" he asked himself then as if in answer one of his henchmen ran in "boss, you gotta see this." he said joker loved surprises but he was to caught up in his plans for one to happen today, he was a bit scared, could batman have found out too soon? no that wasn't till later in the plan, and a plan like this should never get messed up. he ran into the room and there next to Harley Quin, in the hands of the kidnapped Doctor where two little boys. "Twins? this is an unepected surprise, oh Harley you always know Just how to make me happy." he said taking the twins in his arms "you two are going to be my ticket to beating that nasty old bat,: he said in a sing song voice. "Please mr. joker, sir can I go home now? I won't tell anyone, honest just please let me go." the doctor screamed. The Joker tunred and sat the babies down "now watch how daddy works." he said turning and grinning "heheehehe ofcurse my dear, you can go home."He said pulling out a pistol then shotting the young doctor in the head "back Home to whereever you think you go when you die."he laughed then turned to see both children giggling at the joke their father had made "oh come on now, your making it hard for me to choose I have to get rid of one of you, you see the plan calls for my child to be taken and raised by batman, so I can convince the child to come to my side when he is older, it is a bit of a dangerous plan but nothing I can't handle, but with twins there is a bit of insurance, one of you can be with me while the other waits to betray batman when he is older." the joker said then he looked at each child picked the one with the purple tuff of hair and handed him to a henchman who would take him to a secure location until his fathers release, or escape from arkum. then he took the other one in hand turned on the Video camera and started to make anouncments of bomb threats through out gotham "Me and my new little baby here will be blowing up ALL OF GOTHAM if batman dosn't stop us." he exclaimed, then pushed one of the detenators which blew up a hospital to show he was serious. just as he pushed the button batman came in and kicked the joker to the ground then picked the baby boy up. "what are you going to do batman? Kill an inocent little baby? let him live and grow up with me? it is your choice, and you never choose to kill" he laughed. batman thought for a second "I can't kill you let alone an inocent child, and I can't allow the child to be raised by you."Batman said then thought for a second "Oracle, could you maybe"
"no way batman, I am not raising jokers kid."she said
"well...then I guess joker is my responsibility, so is his kid." batman said "Alfred, create some fake adoption forms for me to sign later so no one gets suspicious, Iff I can raise this child good, then he has no need to grow up like his father."
(13 years later-3 weeks from the twins birthday)
thre guards stand outside a shipping bay. "Hey, you sure we're safe? batman could be anywh..." the first guard started to say but was interupted by the second "shut up you idiot, the bat is not gonna be here, he has his hands full with two-face, i here he changed half of North city park into a hellish waste land, then cleaned up the other half, what a freak. anyway batmans to busy to bother with us, he probably thinks we are a small time crime, but this here shipments for the penguins big plan." that was all that the guard said because a rubber bullet hit him straight in the Juggular, not killing him, but knocking him out from the pressure.
"What the h-?"the first guard said before getting hit with a freeze bullet, which froze him solid so fast that he would still be alive when they thawed him out. the third guard ran for it "SHIT sSOmeTHINGS GOIN' DOWN OUT th-" he started but was interupted by a huge bullet whizzing past his head, he turned and said "You MISSED WHOEVER YOU..." that was all he had time to say before the bullet exploded releasing hundreds of Bbs into the air hitting every goon in the vacinity "Hey Oricle, tell Brucy that I cleaned up the pier and call GCPD to tell them my coordinates." he said
"I didn't here the magic word" oricle said
"oh come on, I am not a kid anymore"
oricle said nothing
"the police are on their way, clean up so a bit, we don't want anyone knowing about you till they have to."
reluctently red hood pushed a button on his whrist that was specially made to attract a special type of metal in his bullets so he could minimize how much he needed to make. he flew into the sky and flew towards north city park as fast as he could "good job on your first bust, bruce probably won't congratulate you, but thats because he doesn't want you to get cocky, trust me, I remember Dick graysons first bust, they celebrated and he got so cocky he was captured by the riddler and made into a riddle."Oracle laughed as she remembered the riddle. "riddler was always fun to catch, after you finished anyway, during his crimes you either felt like an imbocle or a complete genius."
"oh mr.J isn't he wonderful, he has your aim." Harley said stepping out of the corner she had barely dodged the bullets and easily stayed out of sight. "gee Mr.J why did we have to give him away to the B man. I love his blonde hair."Harley said
"Harley he was wearing a red mask that covered his hair." Joker said
"I know, but I saw him at his school. I want my baby back Mr.J" she said pouting.
"Now Harley, he will be back with us soon, On his 13th birthday." Joker said laughing. "now come on home we have to prepare Damian for his first Heist." Harley flipped up to the top of the rooftops and ran toward the Jokers carnival hideout. she reached the tent which looked innocent enough, but every cop in Gotham knew it was a fortress. "hey there Baby D, you ready for your first heist?"
"Yes, and please don't call me that mom"Damian said. he hated when his mom used that nickname.
"you sure you don't need me? I could smash a hole in the wall and..."Harley started
"Mom, I will never learn anything if I don't do this for myself" he said, knowing it was the only way to get her to quite babying him.
"ok, but take this. an early birthday present." she said handing him a hand held mallet with a button to make it into a larger two handed mallet.
"Sweet, thanks mom." he said.
"alright alright, enough of that, time to discuss your plan." Joker said
"I am going to bust into the Gotham city Bank, let my henchmen take all the bullets and get away with all the cash." Damian said. "Of curse with my superspeed I could just run right past them all and get out without anyone noticing"
"But it won't be as showy and fun."Joker said
"your right dad, it wouldn't plus I wouldn't get to bloody up my mallet."damian said laughing.
"Two-face, you won't win this."Batman said hanging upside down over a vat of toxic waste.
"oh batman, we will see about that."Two-face said "Lets make a game out of this, you like games. heads I kill you and keep on with my plan, but tales...tales I let you go and handcuff myself." he laughed and flipped his coin. while in the air a bullet shot the coin and knocked it into a tree. "NOOOO! MY COIN!"
"looks like it was tales."Justin said. laughing a bit like the joker. "to bad Two-face."he said flying up to him and slapping cuffs onto his wrist.
"Who..who ARE YOU!" tewo-face said "Me? I'm the red hood."he said laughing as he cut batman down. batman grabbed him and grappled out of there "Hey, I could have just flown o-" he started but was interupted by batman
"I thought I told you to knock him out, no flashy entries."batman said
"come on pop have some fun, you gotta put some excitment into your life."
"we where not gonna reveal that I had a new sidekick till thr-"
"I know I know three days from now, but come on, what an entrance, I mean beating two face and saving you, the papers are gonna be-"
"you did not save me, I let you save me so you could feel helpful come on, we are going home"
Deadfast waited outside the bank, his goons positioned inside. "now" he whispered into a mic. the goons pulled back their hoods revealing the clown masks they where wearing. and deadfast ran through the door. "hello bankers and bankees, welcome to what I hope to be a great Heist, you have all done your part, being captured by me, deadfast. now for My part...you know what, screw this"he said throwing the script his father had prepared down to the ground "My father is so Evil, but he is also a crazy giddy little freak."he said "listen up people, I am taking the money from this bank, anyone got a problem with that?" he asked then ran super speed towards a guard who was grabbing his gun. he kicked the gun out of the guards hand twisted his hand so it broke, throw him into the air and ordered his guys to shot. as the body fell to the floor he Laughed maniacally "you all know the joker right? well think of me as him without the stupid little puns and games." He ran to the vault, used the code he had stolen to open it then took all the money, stuffed it into bags then jumped into the van he had "aquisitioned" for this heist, he left before his henchmen even knew it. "Ha, those idiots will be in jail and I'll be RICH!" he laughed.
the next day
"sir, while you where asleep a bank was robbed, I had thought it was nothing for batman to concern himself with until I read the paper this morning."Alfred said handing a copy of the mourning paper to Bruce "a super speedster who claims to be..."Bruce looks up at Justin eating his cereal and looks back to his paper "that's impossible, I...Justin, we have to talk." Bruce said walking to the other end of the room and opening a secret panel in the wall. "I hoped I would never have to show you this." he said grabbing a video tape. "this is the servailence tape of the night I found you. I stole it so no one would know who you actually where, but I guess It's time for you to know."he said
(10 minutes later)
"wait, so I am the jokers son?"Justin said
"yes, I had thought he only had one child, but he seems to have hidden the fact that you had a twin from me."Bruce said "I was hoping to save the world from another monster like the joker, but in my haste to help you I neglected to check for another child."Bruce said "13 is a big year for you because of the training you have gone through. 13 is the year you finish your training. tomarrow is your 13th birthday, and if I know the joker, 13 is one of his favorite numbers, and so is the date of april 1st. he has to be planning something." Bruce said "Oricle prepare the teleport to the watchtower, I have to check something...go ahead and fire up robins old teleporter too, I think it is time to induct Justin into the League."
"yes, once you are a league member we can track you incase the joker ever decides to take you back. it is the best way to ensure your safety."Bruce said.
"what is that smell?" Damian said walking through the hall of doom.
"Oh that? either someone left a window open or Clayface is somewhere tanning HAHAHAHA" Joker laughed at his own joke and Harley laughed with him "now come on son, we have to get to the meeting room, your going to join the Legion of Doom and we need you to make a huge Impression, I know I did, and so did harley, lets not muck up are families reputation now by being all serious like you always are."Joker said a bit upset with what his son had said the previous night at the heist.
"Dad you know I don't care for comedy, just the evil part"Damian said
"well I guess if you inharrited anything from me that would be the best thing, Killing, besides, Harley said that Redhood, or Justin, as bats calls him is Positively hilarious. once I have him back on my side, me and him are going on a good old fashion father son Killing spree, possibly beat up batman, and of course I'll have to give him the family recipe for joker toxin."Joker said grinning with delight
"yeah, I would love to go on a killing spree, but you know I am not into clowning around like you."
"how did you get so serious, it makes me mad just thinking of what my henchmen must have done to make you so strict when I was in Arkham those first years of your childhood."
Every super hero in the league sat in the circular room, hundreds of people, most of them Justin recognized. and at the front where the three great leaders of the League, batman, leader of the tech based super heroes, superman, the Meta human leader, and wonderwoman leader of the magic using heroes. They all stood in the front. Justin was so excited. he was lead by the flash up to the front right in front of the three greatest heroes earth had ever known. "Justin, you are here because the League has decided to induct you into it's great halls."Wonder woman began
"we here at the league must all take part in an outh so as to make sure that our members are true to us." batman said.
"Please repeat after me" super man said "I, Justin Wayne..."
"I justin wayne"
"do solemly swear to uphold peace and the safty of others...."
"do solemly swear to uphold peace and the safty of others"
"throughout the known universe"
"throughout the known universe"
"should my actions cause harm to the inocent..."
"should my actions cause harm to the inocent"
"I will take on the full responsibilty as all league members must"
"I will take on the full responsibillity as all league members must"
"Welcome to the league justin wayne" superman finished. "what shall your super hero name be?"
"I will go by the name of my father, before he became a prince of crime, My name shall be the red hood." Justin said then batman handed him his red hood costume and told him to put it on. when Justin returned to the hall in his full super suit there where cheers from the other heroes. then he was given a comunicator which bruce would take apart and attach to his hood.
"show me your hand" batman said then pulled out a needle gun and implanted a tracking device into justins hand "Now if you are in trouble, just activate the tracker and the league will be there to save you."
