This was PERFECT! What an absolutely cool and clever way to show them-through Martha's eyes. The balance of surreal and everyday normal makes this delightful. You really caught the personalities of everyone-and how Martha responds, no matter who is coming into her house, is exactly a mother's response. So funny to see how she is used to all the insane entrances and questions. Loved the story-you really have a skill at capturing characters with dialogue and exact imagery. Each shot isn't long, but it is exactly right. Thanks!

I love this story! It's now one of my favs!

Perfect! I love this, I've read it a gazillion times and it never gets old. I especially like how you didn't just focus on the Big 7, you added in smaller characters like Solovar and Ace. A wonderfully refreshing and well-written piece.

Wow this has me respecting Mrs. Kent a whole lot more now. I would just never unlock my doors and twitch when the door opened. XD
Mrs. Kent just does not even blink. But then again she raised Superman sooo...yeah.

She adopted a boy and gained many more children! I like this story quite a lot. It's shows how mothers are understand of their children.

"Are you picking up the bottled universe?"
Ha! I love Superman's mother! And you did her so well!

Kara In-ze, Kara Zor-El. Superman's cousin from a neighboring planet, Superman's cousin from Krypton. Cartoon, comics. Considering that Justice League used to be in the Cartoon section, I'm surprised at how many people use Kara Zor-El rather than In-Ze. Not to mention the cartoon version, surprisingly, makes more sense than the comic version. So, congratulations on picking up on that.

Oh I LIKED this story! It was so cute! I remember that Christmas episode when J'onn introduces himself and the Kents are totally unfazed. I loved it and love you for extrapolating on that.
Everyone was remarkably in character, though it was a little odd how you threw Ace in there. And I think Batman would feel uncomforatble becaue Mrs Kent is so normal and takes things in her stride. lol. Once again, loved it!

Besides the fact that it was a fun story and Ma Kent was plain awesome I enjoyed "Homestead" (I'd keep the name) because I've had this image of the Big Seven in civilian clothes hanging out at the Kent farm on a Sunday afternoon. You can use that if you want, I just wanted to illustrate that this story is almost wish-fulfillment for me.
Superman/Flash - I could just see Wally as that one hyper kid Clark would ride herd on to keep from ruining his house. Just a fun opening, "no flying in the house."
Batman - "I have a plane..."
Of course he does. He’s Batman. :)
I doubt Bats would have come to the Sunday gathering, but I think Martha handled him pretty well.
Supergirl - It's a pretty good meeting, they never addressed that in the show.
Ace - I wish hers was a bit longer, it would have been interesting to see her interact with the Kents. I think Clark would have freaked if he found Ace sitting in his living room, even if she didn't mean any harm.
Lex - Really good. Ma put him in his place better than the Justice League or Grodd could. I like how she didn't kid herself about his intentions or nature. I haven't seen much of Smallville but I like the idea of Lex actually doing fieldwork. Thinking back to the first time he and Clark met in Superman TAS, the phrase "Kent, isn't it?" takes on a whole new meaning if they knew each other as kids.
Kilowogg - Short but amusing.
Flash - Again, he's a cutup.
Solovar - I'm guessing. Major points for Ma Kent on keeping her cool.
Supes Shot - Heart string-tugger. It's not easy being the mom of Superman.
Zatanna - Again, Ma Kent is awesome.
Clark and Diana - Potential daughter in law? You know she's thinking it.

Brilliant. You captured Martha's nonplussed attitude and warmth perfectly. I loved it. My favorite was Batman. 'Clark mentioned you weren't talkative.' Ha!

Martha Kent is a goddess. I thinks it's adorable the way you portrayed her interactions with other various league members, she's like a mom to everyone.
