    -Chapter 28- Clark stood there over Henry as he helped him up. That’s when he noticed his damaged S symbol. He smiled. He then grabbed Henry as he flew with the staff and towards the ground. Hank emerged from the hole in the building and quickly and flew towards Lexcrop. ‘’ Look!’’ Superboy called out as he pointed. Everyone looked up and saw them. Lois stood up and her eyes widened. She saw Clark. Landing on the ground as he placed Henry down. She quickly ran up to him. Tears began to form. ‘’ Clark?’’ She asked sobbing as Clark hugged her. She closed her eyes. She knew this was real. He was alive. ‘’ Hi. I’m sorry I didn’t call.’’ Clark said as he let go as she sniffled. He turned and approached David. He kneeled down and saw him. He closed his eyes as he pointed the staff at him. It glowed as David was being repaired as his eyes opened slowly. ‘’ I’m alive?’’ David asked weakly as Susan hugged him as she called out his name. Clark stood up. James approached him. ‘’ Where have you been?’’ James asked as Clark coughed. ‘’ I’ve been gone. I know, but I’m here to make things right.’’ Clark looked at Lois.’’ With all of you. Thank you for protecting this city guys. Now, I have returned.’’ Clark said as he walked up.’’ Now, Hank has went to Lexcrop. Superboy, I’m going to need your help. Let’s go.’’ Clark then flew into the sky with his staff as Superboy followed. Henry panted as he fell to his butt. ‘’ Please save him Clark.’’ Henry said as James helped David up. Lois stood there watching the sky. She knew it was him. After these past 3 months of Supermen, the real Superman has returned. Hank landed on the roof of Lexcrop as Lex stood there. He smiled. He saw the damaged Hank. He approached him. Hank stood up quickly. ‘’ You promised me I would get my payback! You said he was dead!’’ Hank yelled out as Lex shook his head. ‘’ I never said he was dead. I just said he was missing. He coming back changes everything. Now, I have something for you.’’ Lex took out the box as he showed it to Hank. Hank grabbed it and stared at it. ‘’ What do I do with this?’’ Hank asked as Lex smiled. He pointed at Hank’s chest. ‘’ Place it in the center of your chest and you’ll get stronger.’’ Lex said as he heard something. He turned around and saw Lena with her arm transformed and pointing it at Lex. She held her head as she did it.’’ Lena? What’s the meaning of this?’’ ‘’ I can’t let you do this. My head. I’ve been experiencing pain everything I’ve been with you. Only increasing more and more. I’ve now realized. This isn’t what the real Lena would’ve wanted. She would’ve wanted you to abandon father’s dreams. That is why I’m going to stop you here and now.’’ Lena said as Lex sighed. ‘’ Code: Have Mercy.’’ Lex said as Lena suddenly shut down. Hank stared as he held the box. That’s when they saw them. Clark and Superboy.’’ Well. Well. If it isn’t the god himself.’’ ‘’ Why are you doing this Lex? I thought you turned over a new leaf.’’ Clark said as he held his staff. Lex laughed. ‘’ You really think I changed? I still hate you with all my guts. For stopping me two years ago and showing up even. I told you. You only invite death!”’ Lex yelled as he motioned to Hank. He quickly launched his lasers as he ran. Clark blocked with his own. That’s when Hank pushed the box into his chest. He yelled as he glowed. His injuries were being healed as he transformed back into a human. ‘’ Yes! I can fell the air!’’ Hank yelled as he smiled. He breathed as bones slowly started coming out of his skin, yet he wasn’t transforming.’’ I can harness the power of Doomsday!’’ Hank yelled as he rushed towards the duo as he launched a punch. Clark quickly blocked with his staff. ‘’ Superboy! Go after Lex and bring him in!’’ Clark yelled as Superboy did as he was told and flew into the door. Clark remained clashed.’’ I will stop you.’’ Clark said as Hank smiled as the two exchanged blows. ‘’ Trust me. I’m much stronger now!’’ Hank yelled as he tackled Clark towards the ground. Clark regained his position as he spun his staff as he launched green energy blasts at Hank. Hank quickly took them and yelled as he punched Clark into the face. Back at the Square, James got on his cycle. He was getting ready to help Clark. Lois and Susan watched David stand up. ‘’ Wait.’’ David said as the others turned. Susan looked worried. ‘’ You can’t follow James. You just got fixed.’’ Susan said as she held David. David brushed her to the side. ‘’ It’s what I need to do Susan. I promise I will come back to you after all this is over. You and Lois head somewhere safe. James, let’s go.’’ David said as he flew to the direction of the fighting. James turned on his cycle as he followed with speed. Superboy punched down a door as he walked in. That’s when he noticed it. He was in the room where he was born. He looked around. He couldn’t see anything. ‘’ I know you’re in here Lex!’’ Superboy called out as he heard a chuckle. ‘’ You were supposed to be the perfect clone, yet you disappointed me. You were meant to be the one before. When you ran, that’s when I had to do it. I sent Lena to the rocket and had her destroy it. Knowing we could recover the remains of someone and transform them with the remains of the crystal. That’s why Hank isn’t transforming into Doomsday. It’s because he’s half Kryptonian now.’’ Lex said as he stepped out. He wore his armor as he unsheathed his blade. Superboy removed his coat as he tossed it away. He formed his fists. ‘’ I’m stopping you here and now.’’ Superboy called out as he flew towards Lex. Lex rushed towards him as well as he swung his blade towards his fist. Clark dodged another punch as he swung his staff and sent Hank across the street. Clark then launched his lasers when Hank countered with his own. The two broke the clash as they were on the stalemate. Hank smiled. ‘’ We may be equal in power now, but I’m growing stronger. Allow me to show you how much.’’ Hank yelled as he screamed as his skin turned dark grey as he rushed towards Clark as the two began fighting once more. Clark swung his staff as Hank countered with a punch to the face as Clark was sent flying back. Hank quickly had a bone sword emerge from his skin as he rushed towards him, only to be blasted by a yellow beam and sent into a building. ‘’ Sorry. Can’t let you do that.’’ David said as he landed on the ground as James rode up as well. Clark smiled as he stood next to them. ‘’ I didn’t expect you guys to help.’’ Clark said as James put on his helmet. ‘’ It’s our city too and we figured you needed the help.’’ James said as he got ready. Hank emerged from the building cracking his neck. ‘’ I guess everyone has a death wish today. Allow me to grant it!’’ Hank yelled out as he rushed towards them three. Clark dodged as he blasted with his staff. Hank kicked him away as he exchanged blows with James. David quickly launched a yellow blast. Hank screamed as he punched David away. That’s when James quickly tossed his shield towards him. He then used a takedown move on Hank. Hank screamed once more as bones emitted out of his skin as he grabbed James and lifted him up.’’ Now you die!’’ ‘’ No!’’ Clark yelled out as he flew and swung his staff and impacted Hank and sent him into the air as he followed. James coughed as David helped him up. ‘’ Now, Hank is weakened. Let’s go help Superboy.’’ David said as he grabbed James as they flew towards Lexcrop. Hank and Clark stood in the sky. Both panted a bit. Hank was getting weaker now due to his human cells rejecting the Kryptonian DNA. ‘’ Give up Hank. Your body is rejecting the DNA now. You’ll die if you keep at this.’’ Clark said as Hank shook his head. ‘’ Never! I will kill you!’’ Hank yelled as he rushed towards Clark. The two fought some more as Clark dodged his attacks and paired most of them. As Hank launched another one, larger bones emitted from his body as he yelled as he punched Clark directly into the ground. He followed as he landed and kicked the staff away.’’ Now, Die!’’ Hank yelled as he lifted his arm, until a bone sword appeared out of his chest. The box shattered as Hank gasped. He looked behind. Henry panted as he held the bone sword. He withdrew the sword as Hank fell on the ground. Clark stood up as he called the staff back. ‘’ I’m sorry Hank. I had to do it.’’ Henry said as he held Hank’s hand as Hank coughed up blood. ‘’ I’m sorry Henry..’’ Hank said as he closed his eyes as Henry closed his as well as he held his old friend in his final moments. Clark stared as he pointed his staff at Hank. Hank was soon reverted back to before everything had happened. ‘’ Wow, that staff can really do everything.’’ Henry said as Clark shook his head. ‘’ It only works on Kryptonians. That’s why it was able to work on David and Hank. I couldn’t save him. I’m sorry. He has only a few minutes. I’ll let you make peace.’’ Clark said as he flew away. Knowing he had change. Henry held Hank as his eyes opened once again a little bit. ‘’ Henry.’’ Hank said with sorrow as Henry shook his head. He had tears fall down his face.’’ I’m sorry for everything I have done. I couldn’t think straight. I was just bent on one thing. Now, I have destroyed whatever friendship I had with you.’’ ‘’ No Hank. You didn’t. You were everything I wanted to be. I will forever be your friend. Until the next life my friend.’’ Henry said as Hank closed his eyes as Henry kept him close. Meanwhile, Superboy coughed up blood as he held his sword wound. He was slashed on his chest. He panted. Lex stood there in his suit. He saw on his monitor Hank had passed away. ‘’ You always have to do everything yourself.’’ Lex said as he pressed a button. Nothing happened.’’ That’s impossible. Hank should exploded.’’ ‘’ Well, he didn’t.’’ David said as he blasted Lex through the wall with a yellow beam. He stood there with James as they got there in time. Superboy smiled as Lex stood up. ‘’ I knew you would never change Luthor. You will always be the same.’’ James stated as Lex’s helmet came down. ‘’ You really believe I did? I want to rebuild this city. Yet, you all want to stop me. Well, it’s a shame because this ends now!’’ Lex said as his helmet came on as suddenly, an explosion occurred through the wall as Clark flew through and with green light emitting from the staff, swung at Lex as he destroyed the front of his suit.’’ No!’’ Lex yelled as Clark grabbed him from the suit and held him. ‘’ Give up Luthor.’’ Clark said as Lex turned and saw everyone staring at him. He sighed. He knew he couldn’t fight. ‘’ Fine. I surrender.’’ Lex said as Clark placed him down. He had stopped Lex once and for all as sirens were heard all across the city. -A few hours later- ‘’ Breaking News, Lex Luthor has been arrested in connection for the explosion of the ARGUS rocket. It also confirmed that he has had connections for the creation of Cyborg Superman. Lena Luthor has been discovered to be an android and taken into military custody. Lois Lane has been credited once again for this breaking story. Now, we have reports that the real Superman has returned and sporting a new look. More at 6’’ Clark turned off the television. He stood in the ruins of the farm. He had changed from his suit. He wore a simply white shirt and blue jeans. He still had the beard. He was surprised that it still worked. He looked around and saw Superboy standing there. ‘’ I tried my best to keep this place together. I know how much it means to you.’’ Superboy said as he wore normal clothes as well. A blue shirt and brown shorts.’’ Besides, I kind of need an identity when I’m not doing my job.’’ ‘’ You’re actually right. Since you’re a clone, you can be my distant cousin. How about, Joseph Kent?’’ Clark suggested as Superboy nodded. ‘’ I like that name. Also, call me Kon-El.’’ Superboy said as Clark was surprised.’’ What? I need a Kryptonian name too. See ya around man.’’ Kon said as he flew off. Clark smiled. Meanwhile, James was packing up his bag as he got on his motorcycle. He received a phone call. He answered it. ‘’ Hello? Oh. Dick. I’ll coming back. Don’t worry. He made it.’’ James said as he hung up and rode off into the distance. Elsewhere, David stood next to a car as Susan was packing it with suitcases. Lois stood there as she watched. ‘’ So your leaving?’’ Lois asked as David had made his appearance back to his human look the best he could. ‘’ Yeah. With Henry, Clark, and Superboy, me and Susan can finally be together again. Thanks for your help Lois. If you need anything, call us.’’ David said as walked to the car as Susan approached her. ‘’ Don’t worry. I’ll keep in touch. Besides, shouldn’t you be somewhere?’’ Susan asked as Lois nodded. ‘’ Yeah. Just wanted to see you guys off before I go to him.’’ Lois said as she hugged Susan as she left. Lois turned back to her car and drove towards Clark’s. At the graveyard, Henry stood in front of Hank’s grave. He had buried him there. It was no longer an empty casket. He kneeled and placed flowers. ‘’ Don’t worry old friend. I’ll keep this mission going. To honor you’re legacy.’’ Henry said as he stood up as he heard something. He turned and pulled open his shirt to reveal a red S symbol. Lex sat in his cell. He whistled a tune. Interesting enough. He was inside Oliver Queen’s old cell in Slabeside. He drew a picture with the chalk that was left there. He smiled. It was a picture of red eyes and three boxes. ‘’ And the bell has been rung.’’ Lois drove to the house as she parked. Clark just finished a wall as he heard the car. He smiled as he walked out and saw her. Lois. He walked to her. The two smiling as Lois opened her arms as Clark did. Until. A snipers scope was seen on top of a building in city. This wasn’t an ordinary one. It was alien. The man behind it wore a black suit with green lines running through it. He had a helmet that was white with red eyes. He turned on the rifle as it powered up. He saw Lois and Clark through the scope. He pressed the button. Bang. ( Happy new year everybody. I forgot to mention that in the last post. I've been busying wrapping up the first part of the arc. I just want to mention this seems like a closer, but it isn't. The story is going to continue from here on. I am hoping to finish the rest of the arc later this year so I can start working on the next crossover which I begun laying seeds for. I do have things to reveal. Clark is no longer Superman right now. I will be exploring Kryptonian culture. Alright, the big reveal for the crossover, one name. Darkseid!)

    Steel

    -Chapter 27- - A couple hours ago- Steel landed back at his house. Superboy came out as David limped outside as well. He held his chest as the hole has been sealed but barely. Steel’s helmet came down as Henry wiped his sweat off. ‘’ What happened?’’ Superboy asked as Henry shook his head. He placed his hammer down. ‘’ Cyborg. He’s someone I knew. An old friend. My god. This is terrible. He’s going to destroy the city.’’ Henry said as David limped. ‘’ Then we have to stop him. We’re the only ones who can do it.’’ David said as Henry shook his head as Superboy stared. ‘’ It’s impossible. I’m just a man in a machine, you’re barely standing and Superboy, no offense, you don’t have control over your abilities yet.’’ Henry stated. Superboy thought of something. ‘’ What if we found Superman? The real one.’’ Superboy said as Henry shook his head. ‘’ That’s impossible. He would’ve came back by now. David would’ve been able to find him.’’ Henry stated as David nodded. ‘’ I can scan Krypton DNA. That’s how I found you and why I questioned Cyborg. However, there’s a slight possibly that he might be somewhere my scanners cannot reach.’’ David said as Superboy nodded. He turned to leave. ‘’ Superboy. If you don’t find Superman in the next couple hours, I will attempt to stop my old friend.’’ Henry said as Superboy nodded as he flew off into the sky. He flew until he reached the farm. That’s when he landed inside the living room. That’s when he saw it. The staff of Oz. He reached out as it flew to his hand. ‘’ Wow.’’ Superboy said to himself as he held it. He felt the power that flowed through it. He stared at it. He gulped.’’ Um, I know this sounds strange talking to a staff, but I have no other method. Can you help me find Superman?’’ Superboy then saw the staff’s edge glow. His eyes widened as he waved it around. That’s when he saw it glow brighter when he pointed it north.’’ I hope you’re right staff.’’ Superboy said as he flew off into the direction. -Present time- Superboy stared at Clark as the two were in complete shock. Clark walked up to Superboy, who tossed the staff aside as it stopped glowing. Clark stopped until he was across from him. ‘’ Who are you and why do you look like me?’’ Clark asked as he was confused. Superboy gulped. ‘’ You can kind of say I’m your son? Or brother? Something like that. I’m a clone of you. I was made by Lex Luthor.’’ Superboy said as Clark didn’t seem shocked. ‘’ It seems he actually did it. I should have figured he would’ve done that by now. That doesn’t explain how you found me.’’ Clark said as Superboy pointed at the staff. Clark knew that staff. It belonged to his father while he was Oz, however, he remembered destroying it.’’ That staff shouldn’t even be here. Where did you find it?’’ ‘’ The farmhouse. I saw it laying there. After some time, I decide to use it and see if I can find you with it and well, guess I did. I found Superman.’’ Superboy said as Clark shook his head. ‘’ I’m not Superman right now. Not the way I am right now. I’m not ready to go back.’’ Clark said as he walked back to the Manor. Superboy followed. ‘’ You have to! Lex built a cyborg version of you. He’s out to destroy your image. Many people are believing he’s you. Even Lois tried to find out how to stop him but she can’t.’’ Superboy explained as Clark stood in his tracks. He hadn’t heard her name in so long. ‘’ Is she alright? Is Lois safe?’’ Clark asked as he turned around and faced him. Superboy nodded. ‘’ She’s safe. Don’t worry. I’ve been keeping tabs and looking out for her.’’ Superboy said as Clark sighed in relief. He was glad she was safe after all these months.’’ Still. We need you Superman. We can’t fight him ourselves. Me, Steel, Edracitor. We can’t. This Reign of Supermen needs to end with you coming to save us.’’ Clark shook his head. ‘’ I’ve been gone for months, only recently have I gained my sanity back. I can’t go out. Not yet. I’m just not ready.’’ Clark said as he looked down. Superboy stared in shocked. ‘’ Clark! I have you’re genes in me! Your memories! Are you sure you’re not ready to come back or are you just not ready to face Lois again?!’’ Superboy called out as Clark stared. He shook his head as he walked back inside the Manor. Superboy stared shocked. He grabbed the staff and stabbed it in the ground and flew off. Clark sighed as he heard him fly away. ‘’ I’m sorry. I just can’t. Not yet.’’ Clark said to himself as he looked up and saw Bruce standing there. Bruce crossed his arms. ‘’ What do you mean? Clearly you’ve absorbed enough solar rays.’’ Bruce stated as Clark shook his head. ‘’ It’s because he’s right. I’m not ready. Not to face Lois or to return as Superman. For two years, I attempted to become something. My fathers believed I could be something else entirely, however, I just can’t. Not after everything. I’m sorry Bruce, you wouldn’t understand.’’ Clark explained. ‘’ Actually, I do. I’ve been doing this for years. Interesting enough, I’ve had my shares of breaking points and giving up. Despair. Yet, I rose above all of it. In order to become what I am.’’ Bruce said as Clark looked up.’’ I used my experiences to define who I am. Not my feelings. Now, I’m not the person to tell you if you’re ready or not. That is all up to you Clark. When you are, you know what to do.’’ Bruce said as he turned away.’’ Feel free to use the Manor. I need to handle business in Bludhaven. Just remember Clark. If you need me, I’ll be there.’’ Bruce walked away as he grabbed a bag as he left. Clark walked outside as he approached the staff. He breathed and jumped. He couldn’t fly just yet. That’s when he remembered. He grabbed the staff as it glowed. He felt his father’s power flow through it. Clark felt stronger. That’s when he noticed it. The circle at the end. It was the S symbol. ‘’ This. This is the Staff of El?’’ Clark asked himself as he swung it. It made sense. He felt powerful again as he spun.’’ I need to get the hang of this.’’ Clark said to himself as he smiled for the first time in days. Meanwhile, Lois placed a blanket over Susan as it was nightfall. She heard the door as she saw James walked in. She walked up. ‘’ What did you find out?’’ Lois asked as James shrugged. He poured himself a drink. ‘’ David’s a weapon meant to cleanse a planet however he discovered a sense of humanity that prevented him from carrying out his mission. However, I believe Lex is up to something as you mentioned.’’ James said as he took a slip as Lois nodded. ‘’ But what is he planning? I know he developed Cyborg, but for what reason?’’ Lois asked as James sat down. ‘’ He’s working for an organization called The Syndicate, however, they call themselves The Light as well. I thought I stopped them in Bludhaven. I guess they were still strong here. They had Lex do something, I’ll find out in a bit.’’ James said as Lois looked concerned. ‘’ What happened in Bludhaven?’’ Lois asked as James shook his head as he walked past her. ‘’ I don’t want to talk about that.’’ James said as he walked outside for some fresh air. Lois stared in confusion. That’s when she got a call. ‘’ Yes Perry? Wait, what’s happening in Central Square? I’ll be right there!’’ Lois said as she quickly grabbed her bag and left. Susan watched her run out. -A couple minutes ago- Steel stood in Central Square as he was holding his hammer. People watched all around as Cyborg Superman landed on the ground. The two were facing each other. As this was happening, Superboy arrived back at the house to find David limping out. ‘’ Where are you going?”’ Superboy called out as David turned around. ‘’ To help. Steel will die. I have to help him. It’s what Superman would want.’’ David said as Superboy shook his head. ‘’ But you might die!’’ Superboy said as David stared. He breathed. ‘’ Superboy, you, me, and Henry. The three of us once tried to take on the mantle of Superman. We continue to attempt to be worthy of him. If there ever was a time to make him proud that day is today!’’ David said as he flew off as Superboy stared. He gritted his teeth. Steel stared at Cyborg. The two stared with regret. ‘’ Please. Don’t make me do this Hank.’’ Steel said as held his hammer. Cyborg stared. He looked around as he saw everyone staring at him. He turned to them. He laughed. Everyone just stared. ‘’ Attention citizens. I am not Superman. I am here to destroy this city. You’re beloved Man of Steel attempts to stop me. Watch as your last hope dies!’’ Cyborg yelled as he turned and flew straight to Steel. He launched a punch as Steel quickly blocked with his hammer. The two exchange clashes. Everyone watched as the two fought. Steel swung his hammer as Cyborg dodged and punched him across the square. ‘’ Hank, you must stop this!’’ Steel called out as he hit by a laser beam. He fell back as he saw cracks on his suit a bit. Everyone started screaming and running as Cyborg lifted a statue and threw it towards them. That’s when the statue exploded as David flew down as he protected them. Soon, Superboy flew straight towards Cyborg as he punched him in the face as he flew into a nearby building. He turned and quickly helped Steel up. The three stood together as Cyborg quickly flew out and landed right in front of them. As that happened, Lois arrived as she watch. ‘’ Well. Well. I guess everyone is here now. Metrophilis! Watch as I destroy the Supermen and then. That’s when Superman has truly lost!’’ Cyborg cracked his neck as he flew straight towards them. Superboy flew as well as their fists collided. A shockwave emitted from the clash as nearby people were knocked over. Lois was hit as she screamed and flew back until James caught her. ‘’ You just love getting into danger Lane.’’ James said as he had his helmet on and had his shield out.’’ Stay behind me.’’ James said as Superboy and Cyborg exchange blows. He quickly dodged and blew Superboy away as Steel swung his helmet but missed. That’s when he countered with a punch to Cyborg’s face. David quickly flew and tackled him to the ground as he had yellow light emit from his hand as he shot it at him from point blank. Cyborg was sent towards another building. ‘’ Their working together.’’ Lois said as she watched and took some notes. James nodded. ‘’ It’s the only way they can beat him.’’ James said as he stared and watched carefully for a time to jump in. David stood up barely. Cyborg stood up growling. The others got next to him. ‘’ It’s over Cyborg!’’ Superboy yelled out as Cyborg smiled. That’s when David heard it. ‘’ David!’’ Susan called out as she on the other side of the square. Cyborg quickly noticed who David was as he saw him looking at her. Cyborg quickly launched his lasers at Susan. ‘’ No!’’ David called out as he quickly flew to her. Superboy and Steel rushed to Cyborg. David was not going to reach her in time. He then did the only thing he could do. He used a boost from his feet as he took the lasers as his chest exploded. David collapsed right next to her. ‘’ David!’’ Susan yelled as she held him as Superboy turned and went towards them as Steel swung his hammer and impacted Cyborg in the chest. He screamed as he flew to the top of the nearest building. Steel quickly followed with his rocket boots. Superboy landed right next to them as he examined his chest. David was damaged heavily.’’ Please do something!’’ Superboy shook his head as Lois and James walked up. They all stared as David coughed and closed his eyes. Steel and Cyborg stood across once more as they stood on top of the building. Steel dropped his hammer as it shattered in his hand. Cyborg threw off his cape as Steel’s helmet lowered. Henry looked at him. ‘’ Please Hank. I don’t want to do this.’’ Henry said as he attempted to plead to his old friend. Hank just formed fists once more. ‘’ It’s too late for any words. I am thankful for this second life I was given. I will destroy this city, the symbol of Superman’s image, and I will accomplish my goal! And you Henry, cannot stop me!’’ Hank yelled as he flew straight at Henry. The two old friends exchanged punches. Henry’s suit becoming more damaged by the second. Hank kept using his powers while Henry attempted to block as much as he could. That’s when Henry was kicked onto the ground and towards the ledge. Hank used his lasers to destroy his boots.’’ It’s over John!”’ Henry looked down and saw the people looking up. He gritted his teeth and stood up. ‘’ No.’’ Henry yelled as he turned punched Hank in the face. That’s when he was stunned. Henry quickly kept punching over and over. Yelling as he did. ‘’ I hate you’re making me do this! We were best friends! I thought you as my brother!’’ Henry yelled as he shattered the S symbol on Hank. Hank quickly countered with his own upper cut as Henry stumbled back and panted. ‘’ You look tired John!’’ Hank called out as he raised his fists again. Henry panted as he glared. ‘’ Not tired! Just hurt!’’ Henry yelled as he ran and tackled Hank. Hank quickly gained the upper hand and got Henry into a neck hold. ‘’ Give up John.’’ Hank said as he applied pressure to Henry’s neck.’’ It’s over!’’ Hank yelled as Henry was losing himself. That’s when it happened. Hank was sent back as he was hit with something and sent into a building. Henry collapsed to his knees as he coughed. That’s when he saw him. He landed on the ground. ‘’ Impossible.’’ Henry said as he looked up. It was Clark. He stood in front of Henry as he held the Staff of Oz. Black suit reflecting off the moon’s light. ‘’ I’m sorry I’m late.’’ Clark said as he approached Henry.’’ But I’m here to make things right.’’

    -Chapter 26- Lex stood in his office as he admired the city. He enjoyed looking at it. The once city his father had been so proud of. He was sick of it. He wanted to rebuild Metrophilis. In his own image. -Many years ago- Lex stood in front of his mother’s grave. He was much younger. It had only been a year since his mother was diagnosed with cancer. There stood Lena next to him. She held his hand. ‘’ It’s going to be alright Lex. She went peacefully.’’ Lena said as Lex had tears form. He turned around and saw his father standing against a tree. He held a bottle of whiskey. He drank it as he tossed the bottle and walked up to his two children. ‘’ Let’s go. We’re leaving!’’ their father said growling as he turned around and walked towards the limo. Lex and Lena followed. They got in the car as it drove them back to Metrophilis. Their father got on the phone. Lena simply closed her eyes as Lex listened to the conversation. ‘’ I wonder what he’s talking about.’’ Lex thought to himself as their father held the phone. ‘’ Look. This city is not going well. I only agreed to this because you said it’ll help my wife, well it didn’t. Now she’s gone and I have to run Lexcrop myself now. Look, if you don’t want to do anymore business Robert then you better go before something worse happens.’’ Their father said as he hanged up. He looked at his driver.’’ Any news on Malcom?’’ ‘’ No sir. It seems he had somewhere to be after his wife just passed.’’ The driver said as their father sighed. Lex had admired his father. It was like he wanted to follow in his footsteps. ‘’ Father?’’ Lex called out as his father didn’t even bother to turn around. ‘’ What?’’ his father said coldly as Lex stared. ‘’ What happens now? Are you still going to change the city?’’ he asked as his father turned to him. ‘’ You can’t change this city-‘’ -Present day- ‘’ You can only rebuild it.’’ Lex said to himself as he wiped his tear away. He knew he had to honor his father’s wishes.’’ You tried to convince me otherwise long ago Lena, but I realized I need to do this. The Undertaking was your dream. It’s time I make my own and step out of your shadow.’’ Lex said as he turned around and walked out of his office. Henry sat on his table as he was repairing David’s hole the best he could. He was sweating as he wiped it away. Superboy stood as he watched them. ‘’ Who did this?’’ Henry asked as he tried his best. David opened his eyes. ‘’ It was Cyborg. I went to confront him on who he was and he did this. He’s definitely strong. Someone I can’t defeat.’’ David stated as Henry stood up as he sighed. ‘’ Superboy. Keep David alive. Just repair the same thing I was doing on his hole until it closes up.’’ Henry said as he grabbed his hammer. He then pressed his chest as his S symbol emerged as he soon was covered in his suit. ‘’ What are you going to do?’’ Superboy asked as Henry’s mask came out and his red cape came out. ‘’ I’m going to have a few words for our Superman.’’ Henry said as he walked out the back and flew into the sky. Meanwhile, Lex stood in the graveyard. He was in front of two graves. One was of his mother. The one beside it was his fathers. He kneeled and stared at it. He placed his hand on top of it. He heard noise as he turned and saw Lena behind him. ‘’ I figured you’ll be right here. You normally come here around this time of year.’’ Lena said as Lex stood up. ‘’ Why did you follow me?’’ Lex said as Lena walked up. She placed a bouquet of flowers on their mother’s grave. ‘’ Because I told you long ago to step out of father’s shadow and yet here you are. Trying to keep his dream alive even though you swore off of it.’’ Lena said as Lex stared at her. ‘’ It’s because his dream was something he was willing to do anything for. I was so close. Twice in fact. Only to be stopped. This time. I can change it in a different way. With Cyborg. Now, leave me Lena.’’ Lex said as he turned back around. Lena started walking away. ‘’ Don’t let this consume you Lex.’’ She said as walked away. Lex stared as the wind blew leaves passed him as he looked up into the sky. -Years ago- Lex sat across his father’s desk. He was waiting for him to return. Lex was here for an important day. To finally become a part of the company. That’s when he heard the door open and he saw his father walk in as he sat down. ‘’ Oh. I forgot you were here.’’ His father simply said as he opened a file and began looking at papers. ‘’ Well I’m here in order to become a part of the company father. It’s what I’ve been waiting for. To change the city with you.’’ Lex said as his father didn’t even look up. ‘’ Yeah. Sure.’’ His father said not even paying attention. Lex stood up and walked towards the door. He turned around and still, his father wasn’t looking. -A couple days later- Lex stood in front of the casket as he wore black. Lena walked up to him. Their father had just passed away. Lex turned to her. ‘’ What happened?’’ he asked as Lena shrugged. ‘’ No one knows. All we know is that he was found dead in the office last night. The company has appointed you as the new CEO. I hope you’re ready Lex. You always did want to be just like him.’’ Lena said as she walked away. Lex formed a fist. He knew what he had to do. He turned away as he saw him. Malcom Merlyn. He walked up to him. Malcom turned around. ‘’ Oh. Hello Mr. Luther. Congrats on your promotion. I’m so sorry about your father. He shouldn’t have been killed. What can I do you for?’’ Malcom asked as Lex stood there. ‘’ I want to be a part of Tempest. And don’t play dumb with me. I listened to my father’s calls. I want in to finish his dream. You can’t save a city. You can only rebuild it.’’ Lex said. -Present Day- Clark stood in the field behind the Manor as Bruce stood in front of him holding a pair of sticks. Clark held a pair as well. He still wore his black suit as he saw Bruce get into a stance. ‘’ So what’s the point of this?’’ Clark asked as he just stood around. Bruce kept his position. ‘’ In order for you to be an actually hero, you must be able to fight without your powers. These past 2 years, you relied on your super strength and senses to win. Now, how strong would you be if you knew how fight?’’ Bruce explained as the two started clashing sticks. In a matter of seconds, Bruce quickly slapped Clark’s sticks and smacked him in the fast. ‘’ Ow! What the hell?!’’ Clark said as Bruce got into position again. ‘’ Again. Let’s keep going until you can hit me.’’ Bruce said as Clark quickly grabbed them and started sparring again. Once again, Bruce quickly hit him again and threw him across the field. Bruce tossed his sticks aside as Clark stood up and quickly ran to him with his fists. Bruce once again stopped his punches and threw him on the ground.’’ Look. It’s not going to be easy. Its best you don’t rely on your anger.’’ Bruce stated as he offered his hand. Clark took it and stood up. ‘’ How do you know all this?’’ Clark asked confused as Bruce smirked. He motioned his head inside as the two walked inside. Soon, Bruce presented Clark a picture of his parents as it stood over the fireplace. ‘’ When I was a kid, my parents were killed right in front of me. After that, I sought out the strength in order to find who did it. It took me years to hone my skills. When I came back, I became something in order to make sure what happened to me, wouldn’t happen to anyone else.’’ Bruce said as he stared at the painting. ‘’ What did you become?’’ Clark asked as Bruce quickly turned around and threw something towards Clark. Clark quickly grabbed it mid-air. That’s when he saw it. It was a Batarang. His eyes widened. ‘’ Interesting enough. You showed up when I returned from being gone for three years.’’ Bruce said as he walked passed Clark to go back outside.’’ Now, let’s go again.’’ Meanwhile, Cyborg stood on top of the Daily Planet as he heard the rockets. He turned around and saw him. Steel stood there holding his hammer as his red cape flapped in the wind. Cyborg crossed his arms. ‘’ And why are you here Steel? I thought we already had our talk when I saved Lex from you.’’ Cyborg said as Steel walked up. ‘’ What did you do to Eradicator?’’ Steel called out as Cyborg shrugged. ‘’ He attacked me and I defended myself. What’s the issue?’’ Cyborg said as Steel stood in front of Cyborg. ‘’ You’re supposed to be Superman? Doesn’t seem like it. Just because you saved a few people and manage to convince everyone you’re Superman, doesn’t make you him. I will stop you right here and now.’’ Steel said with confidence. Cyborg simply stared at him. ‘’ So? Not like you can anyway. Superman was this world’s hope. I wonder how bad it’ll fall into despair when I’m done with it. I will ruin his image and destroy the city he cares for.’’ Cyborg said as he glared at Steel. ‘’ Why?’’ ‘’ It’s because he could’ve saved me. He was missing. Why not destroy his image when he didn’t even save me.’’ Cyborg stated as Steel grew with shock. ‘’ You were in the rocket. I’m so sorry.’’ Steel said as Cyborg simply glared. ‘’ Yes I was. Funny thing too. You could’ve saved me too. Same thing with Superboy. Yet, no one did.’’ Cyborg said as Steel stepped back.’’ I thought if everyone could’ve saved me beside Superman, it would be you, Henry’’ Steel was in shock. He soon realized something. ‘’ Hank?’’ Steel muttered as Cyborg turned and flew away. Steel stood there in complete shock. His once best friend, was now a cyborg bent on destroying Superman’s image. He quickly flew after him.’’ Wait!’’ Steel called out as Cyborg quickly turned and punched Steel directly to the ground. ‘’ Better be luckily I didn’t kill you. Stay out of my way.’’ Cyborg said as he flew away again. Steel regained his composure as he flew back to his house. Meanwhile, Lois and Susan sat in Lois’s apartment. They had just returned from the cave. James left them behind in order to speak to someone. Susan was looking at a picture of her and David on their wedding day years ago. Lois handed her a cup of tea. ‘’ Tell me about David Susan. How was he?’’ Lois asked as Susan smiled. She took a slip of her tea. ‘’ David was, well. He was an interesting guy. He would always help others before helping himself. I remember the day we met. We were in Star city. It was at the time of the Missile strike. We were there when Oliver Queen gave his speech. He looked at me and told me he wanted to do more. That’s when I knew something sparked.’’ Susan explained. Tears began falling down her face.’’ Then he began acting strange. All I wanted to do was to help him yet he told me to back away. Thinking I would see him differently. Now, I see him saving all these people as Superman and it just makes me love him more than ever. Now, I want to help him as he helped me.’’ Susan wiped her face. Lois stared. She took a slip of her tea. ‘’ With me, I’ve been alone for these past 7 months. I did have someone in my life, but he left unknowingly. I was broken. Alone. I didn’t know what to do. Then, these Supermen appeared and I got hope. Hope maybe one of them was him.’’ Lois said as Susan looked up. ‘’ You mean the real Superman?’’ Susan asked as Lois nodded. ‘’ I was hoping we would be together. Now, he vanished and I can’t seem to find him. First I lost my sister. Then my one of my close friends. And now him. I don’t know what to do now. I tried looking into these Supermen and then, ran into a dead end until you showed up. Wondering about David. Makes me feel I have a purpose again.’’ Lois said as she wiped her tears away. Susan placed her hand on hers. ‘’ Sometimes we get lost before we pick up ourselves again. Maybe, with Superman disappearing, you were able to find yourself again. I’m not just looking at a normal person. I’m looking at Lois Lane, the best reporter the Daily Planet has ever had.’’ Susan stated as Lois looked up. She smiled. ‘’ Thank you Susan.’’ Lois said as Susan shook her head. ‘’ No Lois. Thank you.’’ Susan said as the two began exchanging stories. Lex sat in his chair as he pondered his thoughts. Piecing together his next move carefully. He breathed when he felt a breeze of wind go through his office. That’s when he looked up and saw James standing there. Lex looked interested. ‘’ Well. Well. If it isn’t Guardian. What can I do you for?’’ Lex asked as James walked up as his shield was already on his forearm. ‘’ Cut the crap Luther. What did you do this time? I knew you didn’t turn a leaf. Lois told me about what you did. You cloned Clark. Why?’’ James asked as Lex stood up. ‘’ So I could have a Superman incase ours ever disappeared and what happened? He did. Right after he took down Zor, we couldn’t find him. So, I decided to clone him with remains of the white crystal I was able to salvage and create Superboy, but that didn’t work out. So now, he’s out there pretending to be Superman along with the others.’’ Lex said as he poured himself a drink. ‘’ And the Eradicator? Who is he? You were in the scout ship, learning about Krypton before me and Clark arrived.’’ James stated as Lex took a slip. ‘’ He’s a Kryptonian weapon. Meant to cleanse a planet upon arrive in order for a colony to be established. I believe he was awaken due to Clark’s pod crash landing here. He must’ve awaken not knowing who he was so he established a human persona and built a life. Now, when Clark disappeared, he must’ve began having signs of awakening, thus becoming Superman because of his humanity.’’ Lex explained. James glared at him. ‘’ And what about Cyborg Superman? Where the hell did he come from?’’ James asked as Lex stared. He simply finished his drink. He turned to James. ‘’ It doesn’t matter where he came from. Just know you cannot stop him.’’ Lex said as he turned to face the city. ‘’ You created him. Why?’’ James asked he formed fists. Lex simply didn’t look at him. ‘’ You can’t change a city. You can only rebuild it.’’ Lex said as James turned around and left. He closed his eyes. -Years ago- Lex stood in his lab. He stared at his prototype. He had finished his replica of Malcom’s device. He smiled. He was about to accomplish his dreams. The dreams of his late fathers. That’s when he saw Arthur and Lena walk in. ‘’ Tonight marks an accomplishment. We fulfill father’s dreams Lena. Malcom just arrived. He’s at the meeting point. Go to him.’’ Lex said as Lena nodded and walked off. Arthur stared at him. ‘’ You really think this is going to work?’’ Arthur asked as Lex turned around. He felt the wind blow through his red hair. ‘’ Yes. I asked you to join us two years ago in order to begin the process. Because I could cure you. Now, we are about to complete my goal. Now, go follow Lena, ensure everything goes smoothly.’’ Lex said as Arthur left. Lex smiled as he knew everything would go right. Until, The Guardian showed up that night once more. -Present day- Lex opened his eyes once again. He saw Lena walk in. Lex approached her. ‘’ Did you get what I asked for?’’ Lex asked as Lena nodded. She opened her hand. It was Zor’s box. The same box that was used on Jimmy. Lena had found it. ‘’ Why did you need this?’’ Lena asked as she felt sharp pain in her head again but shrugged it off. Lex smiled. ‘’ Because Hank is going to use this to destroy the city so we could rebuild.’’ Lex said as he held the box in the air.’’ The power of the gods in my hands.’’ Back at Wayne Manor, Clark stood in the living room as he stared at Bruce’s parents painting. He breathed. He walked outside to the backyard. He jumped to attempt to fly but soon fell to the ground. He hadn’t gathered enough solar rays yet. He stood back up. He soon turned around. That’s when he saw him. Superboy stood across from him. He held the staff of Oz. Both shocked. ‘’ Clark?’’ Superboy called out as the staff glowed. Clark stared baffled. ‘’ Me?”’ Clark asked in response. ( Author's note: So it's finally coming full circle. Lex's background has been revealed and Superboy and Clark met at last. The endgame for the reign of Supermen is coming. However, that won't end the 3rd season. the 3rd season is going to have a second story that'll pick right away these events. As I mentioned earlier, a man will come to kill Clark. He is arriving soon. Just know this, the events of Pandora will still play a giant factor. Keep enjoying and I am thankful for the support I've been getting. I wouldn't have continued this if he hasn't been for it.)

    Steel

    -Chapter 24- Steel stood shocked at this man’s reveal. The man simply blew Steel away with super breathe. Steel regained his balance and got into a battle stance. ‘’ That’s impossible. You can’t be Superman!’’ Steel yelled out as Lex smiled and clapped his hands. ‘’ Thank you for saving me Superman. I was wondering if you ever would come back. Thank you for saving me from Steel. I don’t know what has gotten into him.’’ Lex said as the man turned to him. ‘’ Of course Lex. Until next time.’’ He said as he flew away. Steel was still shocked. He quickly regained his composure and flew away as well. Lena prepared to go after him. ‘’ No Lena. It’s fine. Let him go.’’ Lex calmly said as Lena walked up to him. ‘’ You’re just going to let Cyborg Superman just fly away?’’ Lena asked as Lex simply smiled. ‘’ What we have created is something more. Cyborg Superman is not only going to win the trust of the people as the ‘real Superman’, but he will also destroy his reputation. He needed to blame someone for the accident, so he chose Superman. Now, let’s see how this plays out. The Reign of Supermen.’’ Lex explained as Lena stared. ‘’ And what about the clone?’’ Lena asked as Lex turned to walk back inside the building. ‘’ He is of no use now since we have Cyborg. Now, if you excuse me, I must meet with The Light.’’ Lex said as he walked back inside. Lena stared off into the sky as she felt her head sting. She rubbed it and paid no attention to it as she walked back inside as well. Henry landed on a random building as his silver mask lowered as he wiped the sweat off his forehead. He panted. ‘’ What the hell was that thing?’’ Henry asked himself as he looked around. He breathed and let the wind blow through him.’’ That must’ve been what Lex has been working on. A Cyborg Superman. This is beyond nuts.’’ Henry’s mask came back on as he flew away. Lois was typing something in her computer when she heard a tap. She quickly shut the Laptop as she looked up. Her eyes widen as Cyborg Superman stood there. She was struck with suddenness. She quickly opened her window as she stared him. ‘’ Superman?’’ Lois asked as she was speechless. He looked just like Clark except for the machine. Cyborg Superman landed in front of her. ‘’ Hello Lois.’’ He said as she was even more shocked. ‘’ You even sound like him.’’ Lois said as she reached out for him as he held her hand and placed it on his flesh side of his face. ‘’ Yes. I’m here. I’m sorry for ever leaving. I don’t know what happened. One second I’m fighting Zor and next thing I know it I wake up like this. That’s when I quickly came back. To protect what matters.’’ Cyborg Superman explained. Lois looked at him. ‘’ You look like him, but I’m not convinced you are him.’’ Lois said as Cyborg Superman grabbed her hand. ‘’ Trust me Lois. I’m as real as I can get. I will be back. I promise. I first need to restore the faith people have in Superman.’’ Cyborg Superman said as he let go of her hand as he flew away. Lois stared in complete shock. She quickly grabbed the picture Perry handed her earlier. She got her phone and called him. ‘’ Perry. We need to meet. Right now. I’ll text you the location.’’ Lois said as she quickly grabbed her things and ran out of her apartment. The man slowly opened his eyes. He had passed out when he was put in a car and driven somewhere. The man sat up and studied his surroundings. He was in a simple guest room. Blank brown walls, a normal bed, and a fireplace right across from the bed. The man was confused. That’s when the door opened up. The man looked at the man who entered. It was the man he had encountered on the street. ‘’ Hello. I’m sorry I startled you earlier. My name is Bruce Wayne and I was told to pick you up and help found out why you appeared out of nowhere as you did.’’ Bruce said as he stood across from the man. The unknown man quietly muttered to himself. ‘’ The blue light has come down and soon, he will become a new person.’’ The man said as he sat there. Bruce got his finger to his ear. ‘’ Alfred. Were you able to get any blood samples from our new guest?’’ Bruce asked as he waited for a response.’’ Alright. It seems needles can’t pierce your skin. That means you’re not around from here. Tell me, who are you?’’ The man looked at Bruce and back to looking down at the bed. He muttered to himself. That’s when he noticed a newspaper. He looked at it. Bruce noticed it and showed him it. It was a Daily Planet. It was the article Lois wrote six months ago. The man studied the paper. ‘’ Lois Lane?’’ the man said to himself as he suddenly started screaming as he held his head. That’s when Bruce went to subdue the man but was hit away with ease from the man. Bruce hit the wall as he groaned with pain. He quickly pinned the man down and held him in the sleeper position. ‘’ Easy buddy.’’ Bruce said as the man slowly started drifting to sleep as Bruce let go of the man. ‘’ Super...Man…’’ was all the man said as he passed out. Bruce let go of him as he got up. He got back on the com. ‘’ Alfred. We might have a bigger problem here then I thought.’’ Bruce said as he stared at the unknown man. David stood in the cave as he repaired himself after his fight with Superboy. He flinched as he repaired his chest. He looked into the remains of the pod and saw his reflection. He stopped repairing as he walked up to the broken glass. This was the first time he saw what he had become. David placed his hand on the mirror. ‘’ Is this really me?’’ David asked him as he stared. He shook his head as heard something with his super hearing. It was the end of the confrontation between Steel and Cyborg Superman.’’ That doesn’t sound good. I must check it out.’’ David said as he finished his repairs real quick and flew out of the cave. Not knowing Susan was outside of the cave watching him. She quickly ran back to her car to find where he was going. Superboy stood in the living room, or what was left of it. He breathed as he heard something. He quickly turned and saw him. Cyborg Superman. Superboy quickly got into position. ‘’ And you are?’’ Superboy asked as Cyborg Superman walked in and examined the room. He then stared at Superboy. ‘’ What did you do to my house?’’ he asked as Superboy stared in confusion. ‘’ You’re not Superman. I can already tell.’’ Superboy said as he stared at him. Cyborg Superman simply stared. ‘’ And how do you know that?”’ ‘’ Because, Superman isn’t human. Who are you?’’ Superboy asked as he clenched his fists.’’ I already fought a false Superman, do I have to fight you too?’’ Superboy simply asked as he stood there. ‘’ No. I’m just seeing if you are who you seem to be. Don’t pretend to be Superman when I am clearly here. Boy.’’ Cyborg Superman said as he flew through the roof as Superboy watched. ‘’ That wasn’t Superman. I know that for sure. I must find out what’s going on.’’ Superboy said to himself as he ran out the house and flew into the sky. Lois sat in the diner as she waited for Perry. It was the exact diner that she met with Lucy two years ago. Before everything that had happened. That’s when she saw him walk in. He sat across from her. ‘’ What is it Lois? Do you have any leads on your paper?’’ Perry asked as Lois showed him the blurry picture he gave her. ‘’ The picture you gave me, it was made. This was meant to give hope. A friend of mine in Gotham was able to verify it for me.’’ Lois said as Perry stared at her. ‘’ And what else? Seems you discovered more.’’ Perry said as he took a good look at the picture. ‘’ There are 4 of them total. 4 Supermen.’’ Lois said as Perry looked up from the picture. ‘’ What do you mean?’’ he asked as She showed him pictures of David, Superboy, Steel, and motioned for the picture he was holding.’’ This only shows 3.’’ Lois then showed him a different photo. It was an upgraded picture of the one he was holding. ‘’ This picture was taken 2 months ago. It shows Cyborg Superman.’’ Lois said as she leaned back.’’ I believe someone is trying to ruin Superman’s image. All these Supermen just show up out of the blue? It makes no sense Perry.’’ ‘’ So what are you suggesting? Clearly, Steel, Eradicator, and Superboy are helping this city. This Cyborg Superman however. He just appeared you said? Yet you say this picture of him 2 months ago say otherwise.’’ Perry stated. ‘’ That’s what I’m saying Perry. Someone put all this into motion. I believe its Lex Luthor. He’s responsible for the creation for Superboy. He told me himself.’’ Lois said as Perry shook his head. ‘’ Look Lois. Why would Lex be behind this? He was shown helping people during the invasion 7 months ago. Clearly he’s trying to make up for his wrong doings. Just write the paper on these guys, but I will ask someone else.’’ Perry said as he stood up to walk away.’’ Look, I understand you miss him. We all do, but this Supermen will never be the real one. No matter how hard you try and see it.’’ He then walked out as Lois just sat there. She had no idea what to do here for here on out. ‘’ Clark. If only you were here.’’ Lois said as she slipped out a tear. Back in Gotham, the man slowly opened his eyes as she stood up. He walked towards the mirror. He studied his face. He looked at his green eyes. He then felt his beard all around. That’s when he heard the door open up. Bruce stood there. He was in his usual business attire. He held a black tray with food. ‘’ Oh. You’re awake. Good. You need some food.’’ Bruce said as he placed it on the table. ‘’ Where am I?’’ the man asked as Bruce became shocked. The man didn’t mutter anything crazy this time. ‘’ You’re at Wayne Manor.’’ Bruce said as he shut the door. The man looked around. ‘’ How did I get here? Why do I have green eyes?’’ The man asked himself as Bruce folded his arms across his chest. ‘’ Before we get into that, who are you?’’ Bruce asked as the man looked up at him. ‘’ My name is Clark Kent and I’m Superman.’’ -Chapter 25- Clark stood in the backyard of Wayne Manor as he felt the wind go through his beard and long hair. He took a deep breath and looked up as he turned and saw Bruce walking outside. He was in a simple white T-shirt and brown shorts. He held an axe as he was ready to cut some wood. ‘’ How are you feeling Clark?’’ Bruce asked as he walked up to him. Clark turned to face him. ‘’ I know it’s been only a couple of days, but I still don’t feel me. Something just doesn’t feel right.’’ Clark stared at his hands.’’ I feel different. Like. I just woke up and don’t have any memories of what you told me. All I remember is walking inside my house and then I wake up here in your house Bruce.’’ ‘’ Well. You showed up in Gotham and you were escorted to the police department. That’s when you went crazy. That’s when I decided to come and find you. You even threw me against the wall. I still have a bruise.’’ Bruce explained as he chopped some wood. ‘’ That’s the thing though. I can’t remember this missing period of time. Why I woke up here with no memories at all. I can’t even feel my own power right now.’’ Clark explained. ‘’ What do you mean?’’ Bruce asked as Clark looked at him. ‘’ When I stand in the sun, I can feel myself getting stronger. Yet, I don’t. I think I’m still recovering from whatever I endured.’’ Clark said as Bruce put the axe over his shoulder. ‘’ Come here Clark. I got something to show you.’’ Bruce said as the two walked back inside Wayne Manor. The two walked towards a grandfather clock. Bruce went to the nearby piano as he pressed certain keys. ‘’ What is this?’’ Clark asked as he saw the clock start moving and showed a doorway followed with a flight of stairs. ‘’ Something I need to show you in order to help you get back on your feet.’’ Bruce said as he walked down the stairs as Clark followed. Lois sat in her apartment. She was watching television as she was typing her article on the Supermen. It was another report of Cyborg Superman saving people. She switched it and it showed Superboy saving a falling bus off a bridge, Steel aiding police, and lastly, David stopping a bank robbery. Maybe Perry was right. Maybe these people were just trying to fill the void Superman left behind. What Clark left behind as he disappeared. She closed her eyes to recall back to that day. The day he vanished. Lois went through the ruins of downtown as Victor followed her. She was restless as the fighting stopped as Victor told her which building they were in. She bypassed the rubble as she saw him. Zor’s body as he laid there lifeless but there was no sign of Clark. She looked around as Victor scanned the area with his lasers. ‘’ I’m sorry Lois, but I can’t find Clark. He just vanished.’’ Victor said as he stand behind her as he stood guard. Lois kept looking around. She couldn’t find him anywhere. That’s when she fell to her knees and quietly cried. Her eyes slowly opened as she heard knocking on her door. She stood up and walked to her door and opened it. There stood Susan. Lois was confused. ‘’ May I help you?’’ Lois asked as Susan moved her hair out of her face. ‘’ Sorry to bother at this time, but I tell you something. It’s something about my husband and you’re the only one that would actually listen to me.’’ Susan said as Lois let her in. A little bit later, Lois poured some hot tea into a glass and handed it to Susan as she sat on her sofa. ‘’ So what brings you to my apartment?’’ Lois asked as Susan took the glass and slowly drank it. ‘’ It’s my husband David. I believe something has completely changed him.’’ She said as Lois stared confused. ‘’ What do you mean?’’ Lois asked as Susan showed a picture of David and then a picture of his new form. Lois was shocked.’’ Wait. You’re telling me that your husband, David Connor, is the Eradicator?’’ ‘’ That’s what he’s calling himself yes. He was himself a month ago and then suddenly, he just became strange. Like he wasn’t being himself. One day, I see him normally and jump out a window and then came back the way he looks now. Now, he’s pretending to be Superman.’’ Susan said as she shook as she held her tea. Lois stared at her. She remembered she was like this right after Clark vanished. ‘’ Why did even come to me for?’’ Lois asked as she took a slip of tea. ‘’ Because I need to find out what caused him to become this man. Please help me Lois.’’ Susan said as Lois simply put her tea down. ‘’ I’m sorry Susan, but there’s nothing I can do.’’ Lois said as she placed her hand on Susan’s shoulder. Susan looked up and placed her cup down and stood up and walked out of her apartment. Lois sighed as she stood up and grabbed the glasses.’’ I’m sorry but there really isn’t anything I can do.’’ Lois went to the kitchen. She pondered her thoughts. That’s when she got her phone out.’’ Hello? James? I need a favor.’’ A rocket was sent into outer space as Cyborg Superman threw out of the planet. It was a rouge rocket from U.S. testing. He stared as it exploded out of range. He stared as if the explosion unsettled him. He heard noise as he quickly turned and saw him. David. David floated as he glared at him. ‘’ And what can I do you for?’’ Cyborg asked as David’s hands glowed. ‘’ I am reading you’re vitals and clearly you aren’t him.’’ David said as Cyborg hovered closer. ‘’ I am him. I may not be the same, but I am Superman. And may I ask, who are you?’’ Cyborg asked as David’s eyes glowed too. ‘’ There is only one Superman and you aren’t him! You’re someone simply pretending!’’ David yelled out as he launched his yellow beams from his hand as he blasted at Cyborg who blocked with his arms as he was sent towards the ground. David flew right after him. As David ready another blast, Cyborg countered by flying quickly around and grabbing David as they impacted the ground. They were in the wastelands, miles outside of Metrophilis. David quickly recovered as he stood up. He sent another blast as Cyborg quickly dodged them and punched David across the field. ‘’ Why do you bother? Clearly we’re trying to protect this world in order to preserves Superman’s legacy. Why do you fight me?’’ Cyborg asked as David stood up. ‘’ Because I am reading you’re vitals and you’re up to something.’’ David stated as Cyborg didn’t like that statement as he quickly flew with speed as he grabbed David by the neck and lifted him off the ground. ‘’ Well then. That means you will die right here. Shame. I wanted you to see when I ruin his image. I guess I’ll just ruin yours first! Unless you stay out of my way.’’ Cyborg said with evil in that sentence as he quickly punched through David’s chest. David gasped as Cyborg then threw David towards the city in a random direction.’’ Survive that machine.’’ Cyborg said as he flew away. Lex sat in front of his computer in his office as he just finished talking to The Light. Lena had walked in. Lex looked up. ‘’ The Light has agreed to keep Cadmus up and working due to our success with Cyborg. Good job at destroying the rocket Lena.’’ Lex said as he got into his desk as he placed two glasses on the table and poured themselves drinks. He handed one to Lena. ‘’ Aren’t you worried he’ll return?’’ Lena asked as she held it. Lex stood up as he held his as he looked out the window. He took a slip of his glass. ‘’ Even if he did. There’s no way he can stop me this time. Shame though. I wanted to see his face when it happened. When this city is in ruins and I rise.’’ Lex said as he took another slip of his drink.’’ Then The Light will be next. They are already crippled after the events in Bludhaven. So it’s only a matter of time.’’ Lex said as he turned around and walked up to Lena and offered a toast.’’ To new beginnings.’’ Lex and Lena cling glasses as they finished their drinks. Superboy had returned to the farm. He spent the last couple of days of rescuing people and showing himself to the world. He looked around the ruined house. ‘’ Don’t worry Clark. I’ll make sure to rebuild this house for you.’’ Superboy said to himself as he noticed something glowing in the distance. He walked through the rubble as he removed a piece of wood covering the floor. That’s where he saw it. The staff of Oz. Superboy picked it up. ‘’ Now, what is this?’’ Superboy asked himself as he studied the staff. He placed it down for now.’’ I’ll get to that in a bit. I need to figure out what’s happening. Maybe, I can talk to Steel. Let’s see if I can find him.’’ Superboy said as he flew off as the staff glowed. Lois stared at the mountain. The same mountain that held the scout ship. This was her first time here. She saw the hole where the door was and saw the open hole at the top where the ship flew off. She waited as she closed her eyes. Lois finished typing her story. The story she felt heartbroken typing as it’s been two weeks and no sign of him. She stood up and wiped her face as she grabbed her bag. That’s when she saw James. He wore his brown coat and brown hat that covered his face. ‘’ James. I didn’t expect to see you here.’’ Lois said as she straighten up her expression. ‘’ I wanted to come say goodbye and thank you. I’m leaving for Bludhaven. I have some business to handle there. I’m sorry but I couldn’t find no sign of Clark.’’ James said as Lois nodded. ‘’ Yeah. No one has seen him. Even Victor hasn’t and he left for Detroit with his dad today.’’ Lois said as James handed her a card. ‘’ Well. If you need me, I’ll be here. Just give me a call anytime.’’ James said as he tipped his hat and walked out of the building. That’s when Lois opened her eyes as she heard a motorcycle as she saw James on it. He took off his helmet. He approached her. ‘’ Hello Lois. Why did you call me?’’ James asked as Lois pointed to the cave. ‘’ I need answers James. I ran to a dead end and someone asked for my help and maybe this place has the answers on why a cyborg that looks like Clark and the Eradicator has shown up and you’ve been here.’’ Lois explained as James walked up. ‘’ So has Luthor. You didn’t call him?’’ James asked as Lois shook her head. ‘’ I don’t trust him. He cloned Clark. That’s why we have Superboy now. He’s up to something. That’s where my dead end came up as I can’t figure it out. As for the person who asked me for help.’’ Lois said as they both heard a noise. James quickly grabbed his shield as it was on back. There came out Susan. ‘’ Sorry. I wanted to help when I saw you left Lois.’’ Susan said as James lowered his arm. ‘’ She did. Now, shall we?’’ Lois said as the three walked inside the cave. Back at Wayne Manor, Clark laid on a platform as something scanned him. He looked around. He saw Bruce typing up something on his huge computer. Bruce brought him down here to run some tests. Clark noticed that most of this room was dark. Nothing could be seen. Bruce got up and walked up to him as Clark sat back up. ‘’ So?’’ Clark asked as Bruce studied his tablet. ‘’ It seems your body is low on solar power. Why is that?’’ Bruce asked as Clark shrugged. He couldn’t figure it out. That’s when it occurred to him. His Solar Flare. ‘’ I know why. I was exposed to a heavy amount of it months ago. It was when I was fighting someone.’’ Clark held his head as he tried to remember. That’s when it all came back to him. It was the old timeline. His encounter with Oz. The fight against Pandora. His final goodbye to his father. Lastly, his wish. It all made sense now. ‘’ You’re remembering something?’’ Bruce asked as he studied Clark’s reaction. Clark panted as he lowered his hands. ‘’ I do. I remember everything. Bruce. You wouldn’t believe if I told you.’’ Clark said as Bruce shrugged. ‘’ Trust me. I’ve heard stranger. I’ve dealt with my share of jokes.’’ Bruce stated as he sat down.’’ Go ahead.’’ Clark then started explaining to Bruce the battle with Pandora. After a while, Bruce stared thinking. ‘’ And that’s that. I made my wish and then I wake up in your guest bed.’’ Clark said as Bruce finished thinking. ‘’ It seems that you didn’t actually change the timeline. You just erased events. So meaning, you made it as if it never happened when in reality it did. So, Pandora and Oz did come, just your wish wrapped reality to make it that it didn’t happen. So, you waking up in the ice, that’s the result of it. Your mind and body was adapting to the new reality since you’re from the old one. So everyone who you said died never did and the timeline went as normal as speak. Interesting. I never seen this before.’’ Bruce said as Clark looked up. ‘’ What can we do about my powers?’’ Clark asked as Bruce stood up and flicked a switch and appeared a black metal suit. Pure black. ‘’ This black suit is meant to absorb solar radiation and store it away. So it could help you regain your powers.’’ Bruce said as Clark stood up and looked at up close. He felt his beard. He actually liked his beard.’’ So, we use it in order for you to get back on your feet.’’ Bruce said. He saw Clark studying it.’’ Is there a problem with it?’’ ‘’ Yeah. Do you mind we add my S symbol on it?’’ Clark asked as Bruce took the suit down. After about half an hour, a silver metal S symbol stood on the suit. Clark tried on the suit. It felt great. He admired it. It felt, right. ‘’ I never understood that. What does the S stand for anyway?’’ Bruce asked as Clark smiled. ‘’ It’s my family’s symbol. The house of El. It means hope. Now I must get ready, because the world needs hope.’’ Lois and the others explored the cave. The cave was empty except for the remains of the pod. James walked up to the pod. He kneeled and looked at it. It was beyond repair. He stared at it as Lois and Susan looked around. ‘’ Guys. I believe I found our answer.’’ James said as he motioned for them to come over. They looked at him as he picked up a panel. It was a picture of David. ‘’ What does this mean?’’ Susan asked as James pressed a button. It revealed a title. ‘’ Susan was it? David, your husband, who is The Eradicator, is meant to prepare for the Kryptonians to make a new colony. His a genocide weapon.’’ James stated as he stood up. ‘’ But he’s been saving people. Maybe David was able to learn humanity has been peaceful. We actually need to figure out what this means.’’ Lois said as Susan nodded. James stared at the panel. ‘’ I only know person who can help us.’’ Henry was in his backyard of his little house as he chopped up wood. He was preparing for a little bon fire as he finished saving people today. He was still troubled about the incident with Cyborg, but he would need someone’s help in order to figure out who he was. As he finished his last wood, he heard a noise as he quickly extended his hand as his hammer burst out of his shed as he held it and was ready for battle. That’s when he saw them. Superboy carrying David, who was damaged and with a hole in his chest. ‘’ I’m sorry Steel but he needs your help!’’ Superboy said as Steel stared confused. Meanwhile, Cyborg stood on top of the Daily Planet overlooking the whole city, watching it and getting ready to begin his plan.

    The Guardian

    Disclaimer: I don't own any these characters besides the original ones. Storylines and characters all belong to their respective properties. The Guardian -Chapter 1- James opened his eyes. He laid in the bed. He sat up. He was in a hotel room. It’s only been 2 weeks since he had left Metrophilis. He turned on the television and saw the news. ‘’ No word on Clark yet. Where did you go?’’ James asked as the last time he saw him, was when he rushed to fight Zor, but after the fighting ended, he and Victor only found Zor’s decreased body. James then decided to leave Metrophilis in order to start a new life. He stood up and walked towards his window as he pulled back the curtains.’’ So this is Bludhaven. Why did you send me here Laura?’’ James decided to get dressed and walked outside. Meanwhile, a man stood in a conference room on the top floor of a building. This man had a bald head, blue eyes, black business suit, a red tie, and on the phone. He pondered the room as he heard the door open. That’s when he saw him. James Harper. ‘’ Let me call you back.’’ The man said as he hung up. He quickly pressed a button as the windows became tinted, so no one can see. James wore just casual clothes. Blue jeans and a white shirt.’’ You got some balls to show up here. You’re supposed to be in prison.’’ ‘’ I know. I’m currently working on getting my name cleared. How’s it been Richard?’’ James asked as he extended his hand out. Richard glare and punched James in the face. ‘’ You abandoned this company and not only that, you broke the law Harper! I wonder what Leo would’ve thought of this!’’ Richard yelled out as James wiped the blood off his face.’’ You decided to go on a little vengeance quest. You disgraced yourself.’’ ‘’ I know Richard. That’s why I’m here. I’m looking for redemption. I know I messed up. I let my guilt of losing my family cloud my judgment, but I was able to put myself back on the right path. Laura showed me who I was really and left me a message that told me to come here. I need your help Richard.’’ ‘’ You want my help? When you left, no one was willing to step up to CEO of the company. Leo had high hopes of you continuing his legacy but you were gone. So I stepped up. Something you weren’t really willing to do.’’ Richard said as he turned around to not to look at James.’’ Besides, why does the mighty Guardian need my help?’’ ‘’ Because I’m looking for something called the Syndicate.’’ James said as Richard’s eyes went wide. ‘’ I’m sorry, but I can’t help you. I’m going to ask you to leave now James. Please. Just go.’’ Richard said with a little fear in his voice. James turned to leave. ‘’ Oh. One more thing Richard. Even though you guys never spoke after Leo’s death, Laura still missed you. You should visit her grave. She would love it if her brother visited.’’ James said as he silently left. Richard turned as he got his phone out. ‘’ We got a problem.’’ Meanwhile, James walked in the crowded streets. He remembered what Laura had left for him. ‘’ James. I know you’re The Guardian and I couldn’t be more proud. I know one day, you’re going to lose your way. Wander down the wrong path. I hope you find this one day. I won’t be here forever. That is why no matter what, I want you to keep doing what you’re doing. I’ll be fine. Besides, I know you’ll just get mad for me sneaking in here so let me tell you before I leave. I love you James. Continue your work. Besides, whenever you get a chance, go to Bludhaven. I believe you might find that Syndicate you have written down.’’ James stood in the middle of the sidewalk. He breathed and looked around. He turned and walked down an ally. He found what he was looking for. He looked around until he found it. The Guardian symbol. It was small but he found it. He pressed onto it as a door opened. He walked in and saw a flight of stairs. He slowly walked down and saw it. It was a small lair. ‘’ So the map was right. Master came here too. He must’ve came here first. No wonder he had Bludhaven as a spot for them.’’ James said as he looked around.’’ This hasn’t been used in years. It’ll take time, but I can make this work.’’ James sat down and began working with the equipment to get it working. ‘’ The Syndicate? What’s that?’’ James asked as he was sparring with his master. ‘’ In my clan, we had only one enemy. They have been called The Syndicate. Or at least that’s what they’ve been calling themselves for the time being. The Guardian is responsible for protecting civilization. It has ever since the days of Rome. But at last, a group always tried to stop us. I’ve tried searching for them. I only had clues but never could actually get to them. They have more than likely become part of the elites of society, making it harder for The Guardian to take them down.’’ James’s master said as he knocked James over. James regained his balance. ‘’ Then I shall stop them Master. Whatever their planning, I’ll make sure to put an end to it. I promise you.’’ James said as he shook his master’s hand. James opened his eyes. He had fallen asleep doing the computer. He stood up and checked the time. It was night out already. He looked around and saw it. It was his old Guardian outfit. He quickly got into it. He knew it was time for him to hunt them down. James soon placed his helmet on. He grabbed his shield and quickly left the lair. Meanwhile, a truck was being driven. It stopped at a warehouse. Out came 4 men holding machine guns as another man walked out. He wore a white suit, white skin tone, black eyes, long black hair, a scar on his left eye, had a sword on his back. The 4 men stood around standing guard. The swordsman walked up to the locked garage door as it opened. ‘’ Ah! My favorite man in the world!’’ out claimed a man. This man was strange. He wore a black suit, red tie, and something was strange. His head was a black skull.’’ Glad you arrived!’’ ‘’ Black Mask. It’s an honor to meet you. I am very pleased you came all the way from Gotham to meet me. My employer will also be happy.’’ The man said as Mask chuckled. ‘’ Please. Call me Roman Sionis. You’ve earned it!”’ Sionis said as he shook hands with the man. ‘’ Do you have the product?’’ the man asked as Sionis nodded as he whistled and a group of men pushed a crate. Sionis then grabbed a crowbar and opened it slightly so the man could see.’’ I see. My employer will be extremely pleased now. Thank you.’’ The man then motioned his men to grab the box but to no response.’’ Hm?’’ Suddenly, Sionis turned and saw his men down. ‘’ Ah shit!’’ he said as he grabbed his gun and pointed it at the man.’’ I knew I would be double crossed!’’ the man drew his sword as he stared at him. ‘’ Mask. My men are down too. Whoever is here-‘’ ‘’ Is looking for information on an organization. The first one to tell me will be spared. Oh and don’t worry about your men. Their taking a nap.’’ James said as he stood on top of van as he looked down at the two. ‘’ Asshole!”’ Sionis yelled out as he started shooting at James who quickly blocked with his shield. He then quickly jumped and kicked Sionis away as he dodged a swung from the man. ‘’ So you’re The Guardian. Nice to meet you.’’ The man said as he spun his blade. ‘’ And you are?’’ James asked as the man swung again but James quickly blocked with his shield. ‘’ You’re death.’’ The man said as the two men quickly began engaging in hand to hand combat. James dodged and his a shield strike to push the man back.’’ Not back. You’re pretty skilled. Shame. I don’t have time to play.’’ The man said as he tossed a smoke pellet on the ground as James’s vision was blurred. He coughed as the smoke cleared. He noticed Sionis and the man were gone. He quickly opened the crate but whatever was in there, was gone. Suddenly, James felt a string. He checked the back of his neck and saw a dart. Before he could mutter a word, James passed out. He soon woke up chained to a pipe on a roof. He looked around. His helmet was gone. ‘’ Man. You ruined my steak out. I’ve been tracking Black Mask for weeks and out of nowhere, you come into my city.’’ A voice said as James looked up. That’s when he saw him. ‘’ You’re’’ James said as the man jumped down from the upper roof and landed right in front of James. ‘’ Yeah. I’m actually real.’’ The man said as he wore a black armor suit. Bullet proof, two short batons on his back, long black hair, a black mask that covered his eyes, and lastly, a blue bird on his chest. ‘’ Nightwing.’’ James said as the two heroes were about to have a talk. ( Author's Note: And here it is. The first chapter for The Guardian. It's a little short because I wanted to see how it'll do. I do have a solid storyline for this first season. Also, with the crossover officially wrapped up, Steel season 3 will be arriving shortly so expect that soon as well.)

    Steel

    Authors note: Hello. I've returned once more with another story. Sorry about my previous story. I just couldn't get the details correctly aligned as I wanted. The vision I wanted to bring to words just couldn't come out right. I did mention about another story and here it is. I've put a lot of thought into this. This one has been my main focus even when I was writing my other story, So here it is. Hope you all like it. Allow me to introduce my take on Superman, but set in the arrow-verse continuity. For disclosure, I do not own any of these characters or story lines I draw inspiration from. This work is meant for fan-fiction only. Chapter 1 '' I was sent here for a reason. I learned about my powers since I was young. This world is filled with people with gifted powers as it is. How do you think they will react to someone like me?'' The birds sang little songs as they flew in the sky. The city was Metropolis. A peaceful city. Low crime rate, low employment, and lastly, the home of the greatest paper in the world, The Daily Planet. The birds soon landed on a tree as the leaves fell and hovered until they rested onto the chest of a sleeping man. This man had a beard around his face. He had white skin, blue sleeping eyes, semi-long black hair, a red shirt, blue jeans, and a hat that covered half of his face. This man was Clark Kent. He sat up and brushed the leaves off his chest. He enjoyed nature. He stood up and walked out of the shade of the tree. He was then exposed to the sunlight. For some reason, he always enjoyed this warmness. He felt strong. The wind blew across the park he rested in. The leaves soon passed him once more.... The leaves landed in a corn field as a young Clark Kent ran across it. He wore a red cape as he pretended to fly. Outside of the cornfield stood two figures. Jonathan and Martha Kent. His beloved parents. He turned and waved at them as they waved back. The leaves blew once more.... Landing once again on Clark as he enjoyed the memory. He started walking through the park. He has been away from home for 2 years. He walked outside of the park into the busy streets of the city. He shut his eyes as he cringed a bit. He was hearing everything, He covered his ears and quickly focused. Soon, he was able to make it go away. He sighed. '' I'm never going to get use to this.'' Clark whispered to himself and he placed his hands in his pockets as he walked through the busy crowd. He stopped at a electonics store window as he saw the news play. The screen wasn't showing anything but the audio worked fine. '' This is Vicky Vale with channel 52. I'm reporting on the events of Oliver Queen being outed as the Green Arrow. A picture recently showed up and what it looks like seems to be Mr.Queen unmasked as the vigilante. Speculation has been called in order as Queen was outed as The Hood 5 years prior...'' Clark walked away. He had heard of Oliver for years. Especially when he returned from the dead. He shook his head as he didn't care for that stuff. He soon stopped at nearby Jitters coffee. That's where he saw her. Lois Lane. He saw her long brown hair tied up in a bun, her brown business suit that matched, her blue eyes, phone to her ear, and coffee in the other. Soon, she walked out. Straight passed him. Clark reached out a bit, but retreated his hand. He couldn't. '' Hello?'' a voice called out as Clark opened his eyes. He saw Lois standing across from him. It was his second interview at the daily planet and he blocked the elevator.'' I kinda need to use this.'' Lois said as Clark turned to the side. '' Oh sorry. Just nervous so I froze.'' Clark said as he laughed a little and rubbed the back of his hand.'' I'm Clark, and you are?'' '' Lois. Lois Lane. Reporter.'' Clark opened his eyes and saw her gone. He quickly looked around. He needed to talk to her again. He quickly pushed through the crowd to find her until he saw it. On top of the road, an 18 wheeler was coming down extremely fast. The crowd was stunned as a woman tripped in the middle of the street. That's where he saw. It was Lois. Clark quickly ran with superhuman speed and landed right in front of her as he crashed into the 18 wheeler. Saving her. She lowered her arm and saw Clark standing over her. He was unharmed from the truck. Everyone quickly started taking pictures of Clark. He helped Lois up. '' Thank you. My heel broke because I started running late for my job and then this truck. Wait! How are you not hurt?!'' Lois asked. He was surronded by the crowd. Clark felt uneasy as he quickly ran from the people and hid in a ally way as he finally was able to stop. His breathed was quick. He sat down. '' I need to stop. I can't let the world find out about me. Why am I liked this?'' Clark asked himself. He stood up as he heard sirens and quickly walked away. He always had the heart to save people. Now, he has exposed himself in a major way. Lois quickly ran into the editors room. Perry White looked up. His wrinkled white skin, blue eyes, black hair with grey in it, and lastly, his business suit. '' Lane. What are you doing here? I expected you to go straight home.'' Perry stated as he stood up. Lois shook her head. '' I need to run this story Perry. That man. He saved him. I think he's a meta-'' '' I'm going to stop you there. How can you be sure? All the Meta's are in Central City. Besides, I think West already beat you to a story of the impossible.'' '' No, not like this. Perry. I think I have something here. Please let me run this story.'' '' Unless you have more sources or more proof of this man's 'powers', then you can, but I want you to rest. Understand?'' Perry stated. '' Of course sir.'' Lois nodded and walked off. Her phone ranged. She saw it was her father.'' Hello. Yes dad. I'm alright. Yeah, I meet up at your house right now.'' Lois hanged up and walked out the press room. Clark's head rose up. He stood up and looked around. It was dark. He must have slept while thinking. He looked up at the night sky. He closed his eyes. '' Why can I hear all this? Everything hurts mommy..'' Clark held his head as he laid in bed, covering his ears from the noise. Martha stood by his bed. '' It's okay son. Don't be afraid. Focus on the thing you want to see.'' She said as she rubbed her hand on his side. '' I see you and daddy..'' '' Yes Clark. That's my baby boy.'' She hugged him as she careless his hair as the a storm began outside. The raindrops hit the ground as Clark looked up. He was now a teenager. He stood besides his father in front of Martha's grave. She had died in a car accident. '' Why did she die dad? I could have saved her if I was with her.'' Clark said as he squeezed his hands. He trembled, '' I know son, but you have to keep this side of yourself a secret. How do you think the world will react if they saw someone like you?'' his father calmly said as he rubbed his son's back. '' Did god curse me dad?'' Clark looked up as tears from down his face. '' No son. Your something else.'' '' Huh?'' Clark questioned as his father straighten out his throat. '' Clark, your not from this world. I'm sorry, but your an alien.'' Clark opened his eyes as he remembered. He looked around and decided to do something. With him exposed now to the world, he would then now have to do something. '' Mom, Dad. It's time I revealed myself, but not the way you think. I'm going to do this my way.'' Clark said as he walked away. If he was going to do this, he would need some help. Clark signaled a cab as he knew where just to go. Elsewhere, the ice wind blew as a figure walked through the small bizzard. He wore a big blue fur jacket, goggles, and a mouth cover. He was wearing everything he could to be warm. He soon stopped on top of a small mountain. He soon saw it. Crystals. Not normal crystals. These were different colors as they shined. the man lowered his mouth cover. He got a radio out and pressed it. '' Yes. It's me speaking. I wish to speak to general Lane. I believe I have found something interesting.'' the man said as he heard a response after a couple of seconds. '' Right away Mr.Luthor''

    Kingdom Hearts: Lost Radiance

    Tyler took noticed of the troops in the vessel. He didn't seem faze by it. It actually seemed quite familiar to him. He felt his hip. His sword was gone. He always noticed the weapons being held. Whoever these people were, they were not friendly as it seemed. Without his sword, only his dark feather magic could protect him. He sighed. '' Hello! You wouldn't happen to know where I am?'' Tyler asked as he had to find a way off this island he believed he was on. The smell of the ocean, the feel of the sand on his toes, and wind that brushed through his hair. He felt this before. All this sensation. He has felt it once before. He saw the troops talk among each other. He quickly then turned to make a run for it. He couldn't be captured. He felt that tension. He hid in the forest as the ship starting looking for him.

    Kingdom Hearts: Lost Radiance

    The Dark Realm, The village of Ester Tyler was sitting on the ground on the outskirts of his village. The village that welcomed him weeks ago. He held his sword as it was unsealthed. He had no idea what this blade was called. All he knew it had a strong blade. He stood up and spun it around. Not having memories, yet somehow instinctively knew how to wield this blade. It was not the only thing he could do. He had knowledge in combat and dark magic. He used these skills to defend his village. The village he called home. Soon, he heard something and turned. It was one of the village elders that was standing behind him. '' Oh my lord. I did not notice you there.'' Tyler said as he bowed and the old man gestured his hand. '' Come here my child.'' the elder asked as Tyler walked up to him.'' I have a request of you.'' '' Yes?'' '' The dark warlords forces were seen beyond the outskirts. I ask you, our strongest warrior, to investigate and see if we have to leave once more.'' '' Understood my lord.'' Tyler bowed once more and started walking off. He had no idea why this came now. If the dark lord forces were here, then Ester was in trouble. -Hour later- After an hour of scouting, Tyler couldn't find anything. As he walking back to the village, he noticed something. Smoke. Tyler quickly ran towards the village. He soon found it in ruins. His eyes widen as he quickly ran and started searching. There were no survivors in sight. He panted as he could not process this faster enough. He soon noticed the elder. He ran up to him as he was barely alive. '' Elder! What happened?! Are you alright?!'' Tyler asked as the elder coughed and placed his hand on Tyler's. '' My boy. I thank you for everything you did. It was an attack. Carried out by...'' The elder coughed.'' You must run. Get away as fast as you can.'' '' How?'' Tyler asked as tears ran down his face. Soon, bright light appeared. Tyler suddenly disappeared through the light. As the light blinded him, Tyler then noticed something. He smelled something he never smelled before. Yet it was familiar to him. Tyler finally regained his vision and saw himself surrounded by trees. He was now on Destiny Island somehow.

    Meta: The Beginning of The End

    Chapter 5: Alex Alex slowly woke up once again. He noticed something different. He was strapped to the bed. He soon stopped and noticed something else. His arms were still the dark red color. He had honestly believed that this whole mess was a dream he could wake up from. He couldn’t tell where he was as the hospital room he was in had no windows. He struggled with his bed straps. He couldn’t break free. Soon, the door opened once again. It was Overload again. Overload was Alex’s head of command for his squad. Well, use to since his squad is now dead. ‘’ Good. You’re awake. Maybe now we can actually debrief you?’’ Overload asked as he pulled a chair and sat down. ‘’ How did you know?’’ '’ Easy. The cameras. We are monitoring you 24/7 right now. You’ve been here for a couple of days. Honestly, when the incident happened. I believed you to be dead too but we noticed you were still breathing. You were point blank at the bomb. How did you live?’’ ‘’ I’m not sure sir. I guess I’m luckly. Luckier than Roy.’’ ‘’ Yes. His death was sad, but his next of kin has been informed. Now, we examined your blood from tests and have discovered something.’’ ‘’ What?’’ Alex asked as he started sounding concerned. He struggled a little more. ‘’ The Black Death is inside you at a cellular level. Also we discovered something else, but that is top secret. Now, as the situation continues, you will be held here until my higher ups can decide what to do with you.’’ ‘’ What?! What do you mean?!’’ Alex yelled as Overload stood up and coughed. ‘’ Simple, we need to put the blame on someone. You so much happen to survive so. Your involvement with the explosion will be released soon.’’ Overload stated as he walked out of the room and shut the door as the machine locked the door. Alex couldn’t believe this. He was going to be frame for an incident he was even responsible for. He struggled some more and yelled. He needed to get out of here! But how? A couple of minutes passed as Alex laid in his bed. He gave up escaping. He knew his life was over. Not only did he lose his squad. He also has a deformed physical appearance and is also going to be framed. He couldn’t let this happen. He felt something stir inside him. He had to escape. Soon, a rip was heard. He opened his eyes and they widen. His arms were transformed into sword claws. They were still dark red, but he had no idea how he did this. He quickly used this advantage to cut his straps off as he stood up. He noticed his legs were also pale white. His claws soon deformed back into his arms. ‘’ What is happening to me? Wait. My body reacted due to my emotions. That must mean, holy shit, I can transform my arms!’’ Alex smiled. He soon concerted as his right hand grew into a large fist. He then slammed the door opened. Alarms started going off. He soon saw soldiers running towards him. He was in a white hallway. No windows either. They pointed their rifles at him. ‘’ Get on the ground now! I will not repeat myself! If you don’t get down, we will open fire!’’ the soldier demanded. Alex look at them with hatred in his eyes. These were not U.S. military. He knew that for a fact. He focused again and as soon as the soldiers opened fire, Alex’s arms soon transformed into the claw swords once more. The bullets struck Alex as he fell on the ground.’’ Target is down. I repeat, target is down. Moving to relocate subject.’’ The head soldier said in a com as he walked up. Soon, Alex’s eyes shot opened as he quickly slashed the soldier. Alex’s wounds were healing. He smirked and ran towards the other soldiers who began open firing on him. Alex quickly slashed through the soldiers. He started running down the hallways as he attempted to find a way out. Elsewhere, Overload was watching the cameras. He slammed his fist on the desk. ‘’ Where the hell did he get that from?! Capture him at all costs! He must not allowed to leave!”’ Overload commanded the soldiers as the sirens echoed through the hallways. Alex continued slicing his way through the soldiers. He soon encounter several more with riot shields. ‘’ Do not advance further! We are ordered to use deadly force!’’ The soldiers yelled and stood their ground. They were protecting a white metal door. Alex knew that was the way out, but how would he get through them. His claws deformed into his normal arms. ‘’ If you soldiers let me through, I promise to spare you.’’ Alex said in a cold statement. No soldier moved. He closed his eyes. Soon, his right hand turned into the giant fist and his left turned into the claw. He quickly ran towards the soldiers and slammed his fist on the row of shields. It was a powerful wave that knocked some away. Alex jumped and raised his left arm and launched himself towards the soldiers. Soon, the metal door exploded. Alex walked out as bodies laid behind him. His eyes widened. He knew he wasn’t in the United States. He was still in Seoul or what was left of it. He stood outside of a mountain that overlooked the city. It was now in ruins after the explosion. He was struck by the scenery and did not notice Overload behind him with a rocket launcher and shot Alex. It exploded on contact as he was sent to the bottom of the mountain. After hours of darkness, Alex’s eyes opened to the sunlight. He laid on the grass as he was still healing from the rocket. His half of his body was blown away. He sat up. Whatever this Black Death did to him, he would need to figure it out and who was behind this set up. He soon stood up and started walking towards the city. First, he would need to find out what he is dealing with and how to get off Seoul no matter what.

    -Chapter 4: Seth- Seth sat in an ally-way downtown in Chicago. It has been two days since he escaped from the lab. He had no memory of who he was and why he was there. He wore a oversize brown coat that covered him and has kept him warm. It was raining hard as a storm was predicted for today. Everything was wet besides him. He had acknowledged the gift he now had. The power over the elements. Why was he like this? Who was he? These were the questions he had to find out. He sat there hugging his knees. '' Where did I think I could go? What a joke.'' Seth to himself as he put his head down. Elsewhere, Hux was talking with men in security uniforms. He had bandages on him as they investigated the ruined building in the forest. Soon, a helicopter landed near the rubble. A military officer exited the copter. '' Good afternoon general. Hope you don't mind the rain.'' Hux explained as he shook the general's hand. '' What happened to the subject? Is he still alive?'' the general asked. Hux nodded. '' I believe he is still alive. The test was a success with him. After many months of testing and research, my theory on the Meta-gene was a success. It is now believe we all have this gene.'' Hux explained.'' I can go public with this information and be well known in the science community!'' '' No. I already have enough stuff on my plates. Especially after the Black Death incident, the country is trying its best with the rest of the world to fix Korea.'' the general explained and started walking away from Hux and back to the copter.'' I do hope everything is still going according to plan. For your sake at least Hux. Failure to capture the subject will result in never being seen again!'' the general made clear as Hux nodded. '' You heard him! We must find the subject no matter the cost! He must have escaped to the city as that is more likely where he will be!"' Hux stated as he looked around and saw a needle sticking out. He grabbed it and saw it labelled with something. He smirked and hid it in his pocket. Seth was walking down the ally-way now as he grew tired of sitting and was finding himself hungry again. He waved his hand and some money blow through to wind to him. He has gained some control over his new found abilities. He used the money to buy himself some eat. He walked down the sidewalks of the city. It was mid-day so it was busy. He couldn't tell where he was. Soon, he saw a poster on a pillar. It was a picture of him. Seth quickly grabbed it and saw his name. '' Seth..Shaw..? That's who I am?'' Seth asked to himself. He started growing a blonde beard a bit. He saw someone putting up posters down the sidewalk. He quickly ran towards the man.'' Hey!'' Seth yelled as the man turned. The man had short black hair, black skin, brown eyes, a blue T-shirt, a black belt along some brown jeans, and a umbrella over him.'' Who are you and how do you know who am I?'' Seth asked. The man eyes went wide. '' Seth?!'' the man yelled and hugged Seth.'' Oh my god! We've been looking everywhere for you!'' the man exclaimed.'' You disappeared months ago! We almost gave up hope!"' the man yelled. '' Who are you?'' Seth asked as that was all the words he could muster. The man laughed. '' How could you forget your best friend Johnny?'' the man asked. Seth looked confused. '' I'm sorry, but I don't remember anything right now. Even my own name until now apparently. You seemed to know more then I do. Can you help me remember who I am?'' Seth asked as Johnny nodded. '' Of course! I will help-how Seth, why are shady people walking over here?'' Johnny asked as Seth's eyes widen. '' Oh no!" Seth quickly grabbed Johnny's arm and led him to another ally-way.'' Johnny please listen. I believe what your telling me but you won't believe me.'' Seth told him as people surrounded them. '' Give it up. Just come with us quietly and no harm will be done.'' the men said as they all drew their pistols. Johnny looked scared. He had no idea what was going on. Seth then suddenly used his lightning abilities to shock the men who were wet due to the rain. He quickly grabbed Johnny's hand again as they started running. '' We need to get out of here! Do you have any idea where we can go?'' Seth asked as Johnny directed him towards an old building and they quickly hid there. '' Seth tell me what's going on!'' Johnny demanded as they seem to the be in the clear for now. Seth sighed. '' I have no idea. Like I said, I don't even remember myself. I only know my name and apparently your my best friend. I woke up with these powers a couple of days ago and it seems I'm getting better control over them.'' Seth explained as he looked at his hands. Johnny rubbed his head. '' Then I guess I gotta trigger your memory. Seth, do you remember that night?'' Johnny asked as Seth shook his head.'' This is what can help. Long ago, remember, that night when you came home at the age of 10. The night your father disappeared.'' Johnny stated as Seth held his head. It started hurting. He then started remembering something. At the age of 10, Seth arrived home late from school and saw his house in ruins. His father was missing. His mother died in childbirth. Young Seth walked in the ruin house and saw nothing but destroyed objects. This night changed Seth forever. Seth's eyes shot open as he remembered everything about himself. He started laughing a little bit. '' Oh wow. I finally remember! Johnny, I remember how I got here now!'' Seth exclaimed but suddenly, the doors to the building blew opened. Seth and Johnny remained hidden. A couple of military soldiers walked in. They didn't have a flag or anything. This meant they were private owned.'' Wait here Johnny.'' Seth walked out in front of the soldiers.'' Hello gentlemen. I believe your looking for me?'' Seth formed fists as lightning formed around him. '' Open fire!'' one soldier yelled as they started shooting. Seth quickly ran to them. Taking the bullets head on as the Earth gave him rock hard skin. He grabbed one soldier and slammed him on the ground causing a carter. He then lifted a big box that was impossible to lift and threw at another soldier. He formed fireballs in his hands and threw them like genrades which exploded. He soon had water appear and used the force of the wave to hit the soldiers. He quickly grabbed the last one. '' I want you to tell your boss that if you send more, I'll just keep sending them back!'' Seth yelled as he tossed the soldier outside, who quickly ran away. Seth breathed and calm down. Johnny walked out surpised on what Seth just did.'' Sorry. Still trying to control these. Now, I'm going to need your help in order to find the one who did this to me Johnny. Will you help me?''

    -Chapter 3: Ivan- '' The world has never been a better place! Ivan Monroe has successfully changed the world with his rising company. At the age of 13, Ivan Monroe started up his company as a small weapon inventor until his new weapon design, which was bought by the military, that he rose through the stocks. He is being called the greatest man in the world!''. The radio replayed the same story as it was Monroe industries 10 year anniversary.Ivan laid in his bed as he was awake after a long night. He had just received another award from the military. He sat up. His brown hair was a mess. It was usually pulled back with gel but since last night, it was over the place. His white skin was young and soft. Only crows feet at his eyes for not sleeping right. His green eyes blinked as he stood up and started putting a robe on. He lived in the penthouse in his company building at the very top floor. He yawned and touched his window which displayed news. '' Sir, you were scheduled to meet the President earlier.'' said a voice. Ivan waved it off. It was the voice of his assistant Nancy. '' I know. Why did you think I slept in? I don't need to see him right.'' Ivan stretched and walked towards his closet. The doors slide open as he took a look at his clothes. He couldn't decide what to wear. That's where we saw it. On the wall at the very back was his memory wall. When he was young, since his father was a special ops member, he was trained hard. Ivan knew how to take care of himself. On the wall were two guns. His fathers' guns. They were passed down through the Monroe generations. Ivan has yet to use them.'' Oh well. Another day of luxury pops.'' Ivan said as he put on a black business suit. He walked out and took the elevator to the board of directors floor. As the doors opened, you could hear Ivan's steps. He opened the doors and he was greeted with the ten men that help Ivan run the company. '' Good afternoon gentlemen. How are the stocks looking?'' Ivan asked as he took his seat. The directors quickly took turns and explained that the company is doing good as ever. Ivan smiled. He enjoyed everything that was going on. In the next couple of hours, he would be going to the UN to explain his plans for world peace. After his meeting, he walked through the hallways. He heard something about the Black Death but did not care for it as it didn't concern him. As he stepped outside of his building, he called for his call. Of course with him being rich, he drives the fancy cars. As he opened the car doors, an explosion occurred. Everything went black. Ivan slowly opened his eyes as he strapped to a chair. He couldn't see much as his vision was blurry, but he could tell a man was in front of him. He wore a grey hoodie, blue jeans, a AR-16 around him, and a Japanese demon mask to cover his face. '' Good evening Ivan!'' greeted the man as he got a taser out and shocked Ivan as he grunted in pain.'' Tell me the plans of the next weapon your making!'' he quickly shocked him again. Ivan panted. His vision came back. He looked up and saw two other members wearing the same masks. '' I'm only going to say this once. Let me go.'' Ivan said in a serious tone. The men laughed. He shocked him again. '' Your funny. Why would we let you go? Your strapped to that chair! Now, tell me what Tempest is or you again a beating instead of shock!'' '' Let me go or I will kill you'' Ivan repeated himself. The man laughed again. '' Like you can kill the three of us!"' the man laughed and shocked him again. Ivan panted a little more. He looked up and quickly revealed not to be tied up. The men jumped and quickly grabbed their guns, but Ivan was too quick. He throat punched the first man and got his rifle and gunned down the other two with master marksmanship. The one he punched quickly started running. Ivan turned and gave chase. The man got a pistol out and started shooting. He couldn't see Ivan.'' Where are you?!'' '' Here.'' Ivan was behind him and he punched his back and put him in a neck hold. '' Please don't. You don't have to do this!"' yelled the man. Ivan gripped hard. '' Yes I do. Nobody can know my secret.'' Ivan said in a cold tone as he broke the man's neck. He examine the three bodies. They were equipped with the latest technology made by his company. He got out and called the police. He had reported someone rescued him and killed all three men. He was now in his office as he was looking through the files. He got on his phone.'' Nancy, has there been any shipments reported missing or stolen?'' Ivan asked. '' No Mr.Monroe.'' Nancy reported as Ivan hung up. Someone from inside his company has been dealing his technology to private citizens. He got up and went to his penthouse and back to his closet. He looked at the his family guns. He grabbed them and took them to his lab. After a long night, he had customized them completely. They were now the first ever dual energy pistols. He held them and tested them out. '' Now, let's find out who betrayed my company.'' Ivan stated as he walked away from the target range. He had hit all the targets dead in the center.

    -Chapter 2: Alex- The sun blazed the sky as it was 12 in the afternoon. Alex Smith sat in the passenger seat as he drank from a bottle water. He had brown skin, brown eyes, shaved head, a United States military uniform, a AR-16 a new weapon developed by Monroe industries, and a cigarette in his mouth. He was inside a military issued Humvee vechile as he was part of a military transport in South Korea. He is a known special ops soldier with years under his belt. He was next to his partner, Roy Trevor. He had black hair tied into a pony tail, black skin, blue eyes, the same military uniform, a pistol on the side of his leg, and a scar that ran from his forehead to the top of his lip. '' So, this thing we're transporting, what is it exactly?'' Roy asked as he drove through the private road. '' Well, it's something Overload told us we needed to escort. I've heard its weapon. Something that can help us with the current situation with the North.'' Alex calmly said as he put the smoke out of the car.'' But I can be wrong. Seems fishy that we need three Humvee's in order to escort one truck. Here we are, we are approaching Seoul now.'' Roy nodded to his response as they drove. They were the first one as the other three were on the other sides on the truck. As they approached the city border. Roy started getting his papers out.'' Wait a minute. Something's not right. We were told a checkpoint was not going to be here. Shit!"' Alex yelled as a rocket came out of no where exploding the Humvee behind the truck. The South Korean soldiers that were at the checkpoint quickly opened fire. Roy and Alex quickly got out and exchanged fire with them. The other US soldiers quickly returned fire as well. The fake Korean soldiers started to outnumber them. '' Shit! Alex, we need to protect the truck!'' Roy yelled through the noise as he tossed a grenade. Alex quickly ran towards the back of the truck and gunned down approaching fakes as his comrades started falling. He soon opened the back of the truck and discovered something. It was empty except for one box. '' What the hell? Its just one box?'' Alex said as he was shot in the back by a soldier. He quickly turned and opened fire on the fake that shot him.'' Son of a.'' Alex quickly got out a remote.'' This is Smith! Requesting air support! Seoul command, we are being ambushed! Need reinforcements right now!'' Alex quickly gunned down more as he protected the box until a stick grenade landed next to him.'' Crap!'' The truck then exploded. Roy was sent towards the grass plains. Alex opened his eyes and saw the box smoking.'' What..'' It was all he could say when the box exploded into a red mist and soon spread throughout the region. Alex was point black from the mist as everything went red. '' News report say a biological weapon was denoted outside of Seoul. The whole Korean peninsula has been affected by what experts are calling the black death. Death count continue to rise as outside support has quickly gone to help out any survivors. Reports that both the north and south governments are no more and the United Nations has stepped in to keep civil law in check. More updates to come.'' A news report was said on a radio. The radio was on a little desk as the hospital room was bright. A pair of eyes opened up and looked around. The person lifted his arms and saw them bandaged. Soon, the door opened and stepped in a man in a high ranking United States uniform. '' Hello. You were at ground zero correct? You were the only survivor. I need you to tell me everything that happened to you.'' the man said as the man quickly took off his bandages. It was Alex. His skin was now white, red eyes, and had burned marks on his head. '' What happened to me..?'' Alex asked as those were the only words he could muster. He saw the man.'' Overload..Roy..the squad..?''' '' They are all dead son. Now, tell me what happened so we could get to the bottom of this?'' Overload asked Alex. Alex laid back and started explaining everything that happened.'' I see. Allow me to report this story and I'll get back to you.'' he said as he walked out and left Alex alone in the room. Alex looked around and saw just a plain normal hospital room. He soon started unwrapping his bandages and became shock at what he saw. Whatever happened, he had now dark red arms! '' What is going on?!'' Alex yelled as he started tossing violently.'' What's wrong with my arms?! Why is my skin different?!'' he yelled as the nurses and doctors quickly came in and started putting him down. They gave him a few shots which made him pass out. Whatever the red mist was, it had affected Alex to the point where he a totally different body. Authors Note: I decided to make this a multiply point of view story. Later, the different characters will meet but right now, instead of making different threads. I decided to put the main five characters here first. Their origins made be different and take place in different time but as it stands, I want to introduce all the other characters first before moving onto the main conflicts of each character.

    -Chapter 1: Seth- It is the year 2020. The world has seen much peace and prosperity. The human life span has increased more than it has in the past 10 years. The United States is the head figure of the world in developed countries for examples. It has become a free world due to it's recent president. Now, switch to Chicago. The city is one of the most populated cities in the country now. In the outskirts of the city laid a factory in the middle of the woods. The building was a three story. It read on top of the building,'' Human Research CDC''. This was a cover up. In the depths below was a secret organization led by a man name Dr.Sebastian Hux. He is seen walking through a white bright hallway. He has brown hair tied in a ponytail, medium size glasses, brown skin, blue eyes, black button up shirt, brown khakis, and lastly, lab work shoes. He held a clipboard and approached a container. He soon took out a tape recorder. '' Subject number 50. He has yet to manifest abilities. Also is the first one not to die after the 3rd day of exposure. Subject is name Seth Shaw. He was a former college professor until scouts were able to see abnormality in his gene pool. I believe after all my months of research that he is the one to finally awaken the Meta-gene. My work in the Meta-theory can finally please the higher ups,'' said Sebastian as he turned off his recorder. He smiled and took some notes. He looked up and looked at Seth. He had long blonde hair that went passed his shoulders, white skin, was skinny after being tested on, and was recorded to have blue eyes. Soon a phone rang and Sebastian picked up.'' Hello? Ah yes! Thank you for informing me, I'll be there shortly,'' Sebastian said as he hung up. He chuckled.'' I can not wait to show you. The world will change because of you,'' Sebastian whispered as he walked off and out of a door. As soon as Sebastian left, Seth's eyes shot opened. He waited for his eyes to adjust. He saw the water that he was in and tubes that were hooked to him. Many thoughts have entered his mind. How did he get here? Where is he? What's happening? He couldn't ponder the thoughts quickly even. He unlocked his tubes and realized something. After taking out the breathing tube, he somehow was able to still breathe and not drown. He pounded on the glass and saw no effect. He closed his eyes to think of something. As soon as he opened his eyes, the water around him soon sent itself to the glass container and broke it on impact as Seth washed out with it. He started breating heavily. He could barely move. '' What's wrong with me?,'' Seth asked himself as he could barely make a sentence, let alone stand up. All he wore was a black speed-o that covered his private area. As soon as he mustered the strength to stand up, alarms started blaring.'' Uh no,'' Seth said to himself as he soon saw the door open and guards covered in black held up weapons and pointed at Seth. '' Get on the ground now! We will not ask you again!'' one soldier exclaimed as they had their safety off. Seth saw a window next to him. He soon heard some noise behind the soldiers as Sebastian was seen. '' Don't let him get away! Shoot him now! That's an order!'' Sebastian yelled as the soldiers started firing. Seth attempted to cover his himself as the bullets starting to hit him. He slowly opened his eyes and saw nothing hit him. The soldiers stayed there wondering the same. Seth felt his skin. He was hard as a rock. Soon, the leftover water sent itself towards the soldiers knocking them down. Seth quickly stood up again and starting running towards them. He soon made his way pass them and Sebastian as they were distracted by the water. He attempted to open the door, but could not. The soldiers soon approached him again. '' Leave me alone!"' Seth yelled as a bright flash occurred. The building soon exploded. Out of the rubble, Seth came out unharmed. He couldn't comprehend what just happened. He soon started running inside the forest and towards to downtown Chicago. Sebastian laid in the rubble. He was trapped. He coughed and got his phone out. '' Test subject has escaped. He has shown that he has the Meta-gene. He is the first Meta-human and he has the powers of the elements!'' -To be continued-
