So glad to see that you have begun updating this fabulous story again. I am way behind right now. a lot to catch up on in the group.
excited to see what adventures Al and Wesley run into and of course Diana and Superman. It's quite scary to see him so weakened, but then there is so much more to Supes than just his powers so I know I won't be disappointed.
hope you update soon.
talk to you later C!

Nice to see a new chapter up. My only question about this fic is whether it will end with the end of the war, or is there more coming after that? Because if it ends with the war, there shouldn't be much more time to go...
| scifidude chapter 84 . 11/28/2011
I'm glad to have you back! And it looks like it was worth the wait because I can already feel the story builing up into an exciting adventure. I can't wait to see what happens next.

As it happened, the nearest police car was one carrying a film crew. The officer in the driver's seat turned on the lights and siren while his partner turned to explain what was happening.
"We got a report of a pervert stalking young boys," the police officer told the camera crew that was broadcasting a live version of the show 'Metropolis Justice.'
"According to the call, the freak chose the wrong victim. We're gonna role in and assess the situation."
"Sounds like a real prize too," the first cop added as the pulled onto the street. "Complaint said he was wearing spandex and his underwear on the outside."
"What are you gonna do?" the reporter asked.
"Hook him up and take him to the station, he'll get his day in court like everyone else."
"I see something," the first cop said. "Blue spandex legs, red underwear on the outside and the top half covered in rope."
"Get a close up of the perv," the reporter whispered to the cameraman.
"I don't fucking believe it," the cameraman muttered in shock as he, and the rest of the city, got their first look at the face of the suspected sex offender.
It just wasn't Superman's day.
Eager to show the world that no one was above the law, the police tossed the city's guardian into the back of a paddy wagon and dragged him back to the station for a fun filled night of interrogation.
"You have to let me loose," the Man of Steel said desperately. "There's a dangerous criminal loose in the city and only I can stop him."
"What's this criminal's name?" the interrogating officer demanded.
"Seems to go by the name Harry," Superman replied, quoting the information he'd read in the detain notice.
"Seems to?" the man frowned. "Which jurisdiction issued the arrest warrant?"
"The League issued the detain notice on our own," Superman explained. "Now let me loose."
"What crime did you catch him committing when you attempted to detain him?" the officer asked calmly.
"I didn't . . ." Superman shut his mouth. "I want to speak with my lawyer."
"Tell him you're being charged with; assault, attempted kidnapping, and anything else we can think to tack on," the cop said cheerfully. Sure they'd probably be ordered to cut the bastard loose. In the mean time, it was tremendously satisfying to put one of the bastards that made the department look bad in his place.
The sound of flesh hitting flesh woke Harry from his slumber and he immediately made his displeasure known. "Would you all just shut up?" This is what he got for staying in an abandoned warehouse.
Harry opened his eyes and looked down to find a rather . . . er, odd scene. It seemed that a group of thugs had captured Gotham's caped crusader and tied the man to a chair, Harry thought the ball gag and the jumper cables on the man's nipples were a bit much.
The boy's eyes widened in shock as he realized what he'd stumbled onto. "Sorry," he called down. "Not at my best when I get woken up and if I'd known I was interrupting your romantic moment then I'd have kept my mouth shut."
"This isn't a romantic moment," the lead thug said to the voice in the all concealing shadows.
"It isn't?" Harry asked in shock. Cause that's what it looked like. "Then, Batman didn't pay you guys to . . . er, show him a good time?" Several months of living in slums had broadened the boy's horizons considerably.
"No," the lead thug growled. "We're doing this for ourselves."
"Is that why he fights you guys?" Harry asked, piecing the whole thing together. "Because you have a habit of repeatedly kidnapping and violating him?"
"We aren't going to violate him," the lead thug said with a sigh. "We're going to torture and murder him."
"Boss," one of the other thugs held up his hand. "It's nothing worse then any of us have done in prison before and just think of how popular a video of that would be with the rest of the boys."
"Right," the chief thug agreed. "You lot . . ." he trailed off when he noticed that the chair they'd tied Batman to was empty. "Where'd he go?"
"Escaped when you guys were talking about video taping it," Harry said helpfully. "Why don't I just show myself out?"
Harry slipped out of the warehouse and was long gone by the time the Dark Knight had finished off the group of thugs.
Batman glared around the dimly lit space, as if trying to make a scrap of evidence that would reveal the identity of his latest foe appear by sheer will power alone. He'd been so close. Oh well, he only had to be lucky once, the boy had to be lucky every time. Eventually the kid would slip up and then the bat would get him.
Two blocks away, Harry was enjoying an early breakfast at an all night diner.
"You're up early," the waitress commented, pouring the boy a cup of coffee.
It was Gotham's newest villain, the leather clad 'Mr. Slave' that convinced Harry it was time to move on. He'd seen all that the city could offer and it was time to see another piece of the world. A piece called, Metropolis.
Which was how he found himself at the Gotham bus station surrounded by a group of faceless thugs on their way to find henching jobs in cities where their virtues weren't in danger of being stolen by the local heroes.
"So let me get this straight," Harry said, trying to understand the whole situation. "This Batman guy used to run around in tights with a young boy, also in tights?"
"Yup," the thug agreed.
"And no one called the police?" Harry demanded. "That's kind of . . . well, I don't want to start any rumors. But it's definitely something that needs to be looked into."
"You know, I never thought of it like that," the big man said slowly. "Makes sense though. Batman's a sexual deviant."
"Bet he gets his kicks from kicking us around," another said with a frown.
"Certainly explains a lot of things," the first thug agreed slowly. "Anyone know what we need to do to file a complaint?"
"I'll have a talk with my parole officer the next time I see him."
"I didn't know you were allowed to leave town if you were on parole?" Harry said thoughtfully.
"All depends if you're a common crook or a professional hench," the big man explained. "Police know that us professionals are model citizens when we're not on the clock so they mostly leave us alone." He rummaged around in his pocket for a few seconds and pulled out a business card. "Here's the name of one of the better agencies."
"Thanks." Harry examined the card carefully.
"It's not a bad life. Plenty of excitement and it's fairly safe aside from the occasional beating by one of the capes."
"Puts food on the table anyway," another agreed.
"I'll keep it in mind," Harry promised.

I do get carried away when using this software and one I like a good story before this was rubbish I don't think I would probably review in
Sorry for the long post then I have to do it in several reviews not enough what count
hank you for your prompt reply to my previous review
Wonder woman is one of my favourite characters the isolationist culture she comes from give some interesting opinions on what is happening
I accept she has came from a culture that has been isolated for several thousand years she has been dispatched as the champion to return the American and investigate the war that being prophesied to affect her nation
I haven't seen any political investigation she has instantly adopted the American position working for the Army and is already anti-Germany
I do not state the good or bad of Nazi politics but I would expect her as a princess and as an ambassador to at least consider looking at both sides before choosing her ally
it was the Americans that first use atomic warfare and she is ally in with them choosing she be going round snuffing scientists? (For the greater good)?
I just feel this story is very much to me there is a good and bad group and you are in one or the other there is no in between
that's why I love playing fallout new vegas every character has their own agenda and it doesn't make them good or bad they just selfless and I would like to see more depth
I am pleased Superman didn't just snuff the elected democratically leader of a sovereign state
(personally if I was a mat-human I wouldn't listen to no government probably make my own government)
I appreciate you trying to follow Superman's personality
To see where I'm coming from I would highly recommend you take a look at
"A Spark of Genius » by michaelsuave"
Xander Harris was never called a genius, but after a different choice of Halloween costumes he is hit with a 'spark' of mad genius, the abilities that go with it, and flung into a far different world. Come and enjoy the madness. GirlGenius vers costume.
Chapters: 39 - Words: 451,269 - Reviews: 1731 - Updated: 10-26-11 - Published: 10-31-1
Basically Xander form Buffy universe finds himself in modern-day Justice league with that technology abilities make iron man look like a caveman
In no time he creates a robot army powered suits for his biological pet monster he made an incredibly helpful portal making system back in with anything anywhere any time a supercomputer desires
in that reality he becomes the official and undisputed leader of a countries by overflowing its previous dictator taking the country at a time for two weeks while he upgraded the country
then we came back the country next door fired upon them and so and United Nations Law he led his army and took it stopping the internal civil war pacifying that nation
After he finished killing an entire army camp full of soldiers Green Lantern turned up and the rest of the Justice league and started preaching how your mighty
they did not have the mandate and the United Nations Law to interfere but didn't stop them attacking a leader of a country and then we quickly learned you don't mess around in politics go back to stopping bank robberies
using his technology emulated the yellow light cantering Green Lantern summoning a portal of water to freeze the Hawk girl having his tiny tiny tiny robots can't think of a name is modify his suit to emulate kryptonite to deal with the big blue
he then teleported the unconscious self back to the watchtower where quite righteously Diana Amazonian ambassador took the right decision to not declare war against another nation she is foremost an ambassador to the people and she knew
by openly attacking the leader of a nation that has a declaration of war in the meanwhile her mother was in the process of setting up an embassy in that very nation
Before that story I never considered Justice league problems in dealing with international politics individual countries beliefs they do seem to do and go whether they liked with no concern for the minor government to stand over accountable to no one
That story showed quite clearly how the world should react to it and regulated powered group doing whatever they liked in the name of justice
Finally I hate the term justice personally 50 years ago being a fag was a crime and now it is acceptable proving that all because some think of the law doesn't make it right
make Superman be as controlled as a soldier or having as a complete free agent I find it hard to him to think he can do the middle what guidelines will he follow what went wrong
This one story I read Harry Potter after the war found himself in the Justice league universe and was on holiday ( not Mr Black) he wasn't shy about hiding his ability as wasn't too concerned about helping while on his travels across America he was temporarily enlisted into the local police force he loaded up his right hand and was sworn in two seconds later he blasted the several armed murderers bank robbers internecine and completely within the law has a squad member of the police force was allowed to use lethal force is not like they masked capes
Here they are
"The Woodsman's Axe" by Rorschach's Blot"
showing how the repeat offenders ( Joker) choosing to be allowed to live and go on to kill more people they should be terminated permanently or they will only go to kill more people this story shows probably how the punisher would work
The next 1 I would recommend is in this Odd_Ideas Folder on one short stories that are stories in their self chapter 127 is his Justice league harry potter Story
A section below
"We're coming to you live from the sunset strip where a madman has strapped explosives to his chest and is threatening to blow up a bus full of school children."
The camera panned to a man with wild red hair screaming at the top of his lungs and waving, what appeared to be a radio controlled detonator in his left hand.
"I want a helicopter, a million . . . make that fifty million dollars, and a pardon from the governor . . . make that the President, or the kids get it. I've loaded this bus with a hundred . . . make that five hundred pounds of explosives and if you try anything, there won't be enough of the little darlings to fill a shoe . . . make that match box."
The camera panned back to the police line and focused on a messy haired teen standing next to one of the police officers. The young man was holding up his right hand and repeating after the officer.
"...Swear to obey the laws of Los Vegas and the United states government, to respect the authority entrusted to me, and to help law enforcement officials when required."
The Camera man zoomed in, getting a close up of the officer's solemn face, and then panned to the equally sober Harry as the officer continued.
"Then It is my pleasure to deputize you into the Los Vegas Police department. Your first duty will be to help us resolve the current situation."
Harry's Answering grin was angelic and excited. The camera man, showing the professionalism that hand landed him one of the sweetest gigs in the city zoomed back out just in time to catch Harry whip around and send a couple of quick cutting charms at the hostage taker.
"Problem solved," Harry said with a satisfied grin. "Need anything else?"
"Nope." The man looked over at the screaming criminal. "Did you have to chop off his arms?"
"I did if I wanted to be sure the kids would be okay," Harry agreed. "Would have tried something else if it was just him, wasn't going to risk it when the safety of the kids was at stake."
"Works for me," the cop agreed. "Good job, kid."
"Always happy to help," Harry said modestly.
The camera panned back to the reporter.
"Once again, the day is saved, thanks to the actions of a plucky young man with powers and without a mask." The reporter gave a fake smile, ignoring the screams of the disarmed criminal in the background. "For channel six news, I'm Mike Michaels, signing off."
Clark's eye's widened in shock when he spied the face that had been circulating on the League's latest wanted poster. Sure there wasn't enough evidence to try the boy in a court of law, but trifles like that had never stopped members of the Justice League from doing their duty.
"You're coming with me," the Man of Steel said firmly.
"Stupefy, incarcerous," Harry replied quickly. No way was he going anywhere with a deviant spandex fetishist that wore his underwear on the outside.
Spying a pay phone, Harry decided to do his civic duty. Conveniently the emergency number was printed on the phone and he soon had a police officer on the other end.
"Yeah, I'm a supple young boy and some spandex clad pervert with his underwear on the outside tried to come onto me. Left him tied up about a block away from the phone."
Good deed done, Harry decided to see if there was anywhere good to eat in the local area.

I must start off by congratulating you on how well the story is written only ever really sure Justice league and Batman cartoons killed Superman movie so most of the background of the early Superman comics is quite interesting
Now down to the plot
I'm involved in politics non-mainstream politics and yes I have found state persecution mainstream media quite hostel and so forth and to hear in this story that Lois Lane his spine on a political movement that sounds like fascism harassing their members breaking into hotel rooms and treating them like scum
everybody has the right to create any political organisation for any ideology and its everybody else's right to choose to vote for them or not not for governments militarily and journalists to wine cry and spy on them because they don't believe in the politics
I wonder if you are just writing a flawed character or is it your own opinions
British myself and yes on the argument I could declare that we in Britain fell America joined the war too late I never really thought about it from the American point of view before that I could after reading this story fully accept the argument to not get involved increased military spending boost the Army tenfold
and then kill the winner in Europe when the European armies have exhausted himself
That's what I would have done if I was the King of England in World War II stay neutral lead Russia and Germany fight it out and then come in and kill the winner when they are weak and tired
America hasn't declared war against Germany so far in this story but they are still spying on and persecuting people hop a sympathetic to their politics
to call people traitors does sound very much like persecution of political opponents
I personally hate my existing government I would love nothing more than to replace the government of Great Britain for their illegal wars that doesn't make me a traitor
(apologising for the rant I get carried away when using dictation software)
Other than that slight annoyance I really really enjoyed this story

Just got into this fic 2 days ago and I'm nearly at the end. Your writing is interesting considering that I'v literally been reading from the time I wake up until I pass out, with only 3 hours total of breaks at most. And that's usually for a movie with dinner and bathroom breaks. Hell, I'm only stopping to review now because my eyes are starting to hurt. I was actually surprised to see this here since I didn't see it at the SM&WW fanfic archive with your other SM/WW fic, Clark Kent is Dead! It was a pleasant surprise though since I was looking for a nice long fic to read instead of the many shorts out there. Keep up the awesome work, you've got a new fan.

A wonderfully crafted ending to the adventure in Venturia. the plot the characters, the characterizations, the action, the danger.
very natural moments with Diana and Supes and loved how you had everyone working together to take down the Ultra Kraken.
So it's back home for everyone. will be interested to see what adventures and dangers await our heroes there.
Great story C!
I'll talk to you soon!
