This is very good but it is so tragic. :(

An excellent story! I'll admit, I wasn't quite sure where you were going, and for a while I was worried it was going into overpowered OC area, but you created a believable and interesting character that interacted with all the others well.
Flash had an excellent point-the League definitely employs some shady characters (although it's worth pointing out few of them CONTINUE with their practices after being hired) And considered some of the costumes-certainly in the Teen Titans-certain superheroines might as well be porn stars.
I also liked how you kept the core JL team consistent and true to their comic characters. Again, I was worried that she was going to seduce Superman, or that Batman or Wonder Woman would be outed as a pervert. But all the characters stayed true to themselves, and Kelly's death and their reactions to it were all magnificent (Bats' cameo as Matches was also great). Good story all around!

Wow. Your parody humor stories are good but when you write a serrious piece your talent really shines through. I am super impressed. Danni felt like such a well developed character that if I didn't know better I would have sworn she was not an OC at all. Bravo!

This was pretty awesome. didn't really like her death but that's the life of a super

Please don't take this the wrong way, because this is extremely well done, but I never ever want to read this again.

I wanted her to live :(

This was very well done. From not overpowering an OC to having a not-so-happy ending to the humor and plot. I believe I read this a few years back but I didn't review it at the time; this story deserves way more reviews than nearly a hundred.

A very underrated story. I enjoyed reading this a lot.

Honestly, I'm...not sure how to take this story, Adrian. It's very well written, the voices feel right for the JLA members used (that I'm familiar with, anyway)...but the idea driving the story left me with mixed feelings.
On the one hand, the idea that a porn actress getting her meta-gene triggered and gaining some serious abilities - enough to warrant JLA interest immediately - is rather obviously crack and feels like a version of the plot conceit of "The Pro" (though that's a prostitute getting super-powers). Plus, the fun of the JLA and their spouses reacting to having someone like Kelly/Danni/Kinesis as a member helps sell the tale.
But on the other, the whole idea of "look at what happens when a pornstar gets picked for the Justice League!" gets flipped on its ear by having Kelly get ambushed and tortured by henchmen of an indirectly IDed supervillain, before dying of her injuries while refusing to give up JLA secrets. But I guess that's the point of all this, isn't it? Taking some crazy concept and actually selling it as a viable plot, humourous pokes at the idea of Batman not knowing porn aside.
So...a hearty "Great Job!" and all that.

Cant say I didnt see the ending (climax) coming. Its similar to one JL comic I read (dont remember which). But of course thats not the main point. The character is definitely the one of the few OCs i've found that could have been in a comic (if DC had the balls to do it). I do mean that as a compliment. The story itself could have gone wrong in dozens of ways but it didnt. And the fact that you take a volatile topic and fill it with humor that isnt crude makes it one of the best things i've read.
Also if you could have posted it as several chapters it would have been easier to read especially since im on a mobile. And i do have to ask why you're posting this in dc superheroes instead of justice league.

interesting, very good, well written, interesting plot/.
I will admit I would have rather seen her live and do some sequels but this was a very good story, as is.

Well written and thought provoking. Thank You.
| Mark chapter 1 . 1/4/2014
Damn that ending gave me lots of feels.
Kelly was an extremely interesting character with a very unique ability. Her ending makes me feel bitter as unlike the major all-stars it's not some great sacrifice to save the world/universe.
| Nemrut chapter 1 . 12/6/2013
I really loved this story. The Idea is actually amazing and I love how you pulled it off, starting light-hearted and getting grittier as the story progressed, as the respective characters either got over their preconceptions or didn't.
Thank you for sharing this

First, this fic brought out the funny feels. Then it brought out the sad feels. I'm gonna go cry now. Thanks for writing this.
