Chloe waited patiently outside of what she can best describe as an incubation tube. In it was a blond haired man whom was starting to come to. She smiled seeing his eyes start to open.
Oliver opened his eyes seeing trace of familiar shades of blond hair. "Dinah?"
Tess let out a low gulp from the computer seeing her avatar had found Courtney. Poor Chloe that had to be painful.
Chloe shook her head. Well she had an answer as to whether those emails were actually platonic. "Same hair color but I have a very different set of pipes."
Oliver shot up seeing her. He knew it he knew she wasn't dead. "Chloe!"
Chloe helped him out and to his feet. "Just take it easy, I got you."
Oliver looked at her. "The rest of the JSA they're all here!"
"She's outside fighting with some old and new friends. Some of our friends are still trapped in VR see for yourself." Chloe pointed to the screen showing the fight outside.
Oliver looked to the screen outside and saw a couple soldiers knocked aside as almost something like a group shot in a movie revealing a solid line of hurt showing Clark in a new costume, Black Canary, Impulse, Captain America, The Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and some new guy Oliver is sure Carter would have torn apart if he had still been alive to see him with those wings. "Chloe, you want to catch me up on what you've been doing?"
Chloe shook her head as Tess located Cyborg and J'onn Jones in VR world as Chloe put a duffel bag down in front of Oliver. "Not at this moment I need Green Arrow out there helping the others."
Oliver opened the bag revealing a compound bow and his gear.
Before long more and more members of Clark's team joined the field. What was already a one sided battle with Clark on one side turned into a flat out curb stomp battle between the JSA and the Avengers against the rogue army.
Steve hit a soldier with his shield. He watched as the newest member of the group joined the fray seeing a young blond woman jump down with a staff in her hands and clothes similar to him.
Courtney Whitmore looked at the approaching army and ran staff in hand as she used it to hit the floor sending her front flipping into the air landing in the middle of ten soldiers. Once she landed her staff shot light in all directions knocking all the soldiers aside. She caught her breath and looked at the man dressed like her in a new revere. "Oh my god, you're… you're him!"
Steve smiled in disbelief. "Yes I am. Guessing you're a fan?"
"I come from a long line of fans. I wish the Star Spangled kid could have seen this." Courtney replied.
They both turned to the loud explosion a distance in front of them caused by a tank shell shot. They watched as Clark emerged unfazed as he flew right to the tank and ripped the cannon off and hit the tank with it once on each side knocking off any form of traction the tank had on each side turning the tank into the world's largest paperweight incapable of even moving.
Clark walked by Courtney. "Maybe you can get that autograph after the fight Stargirl?" Steve couldn't help but let out a disbelieving smile.
Courtney nodded Clark's back too. "Of course welcome back boy scout"
Clark groaned he needs a better code-name but. "Good to be back."
After an hour everyone was free saved for one glaring omission. Clark looked at what was supposed to be the last captive and only saw a glaring nothing when he opened it.
Clark looked at the empty capsule. "Where's Kara?"
Oliver shook his head. "We don't know we figured she was here. She was at Carter's funeral with the rest of us."
Chloe looked at Dinah a bit uneasily then conveniently happened to find her eyes glued to a monitor.
Tess walked up next to her and felt like she was back in high school. "Looking at the updated systems?"
"No, they're fine." Chloe replied. "Might be updating them with a thing or two I learned from the road."
Tess looked over at the Black Canary. "He had to let someone in."
"What?" Chloe asked.
"Oliver" Tess clarified. "He had to let someone in. Chloe you were the woman he loved maybe he still does. But you were gone. He also couldn't go to his best friend because Clark was gone too. He had to let someone in Chloe."
Chloe nodded in understanding. "Yeah I know."
Steve walked into the room and saw John Jones sitting quietly with Bucky. This is the guy that's supposed to be able to help him. He looks no different then Sam except his eyes turns red every now and then. "Buck…" The Winter Soldier smiled. "Is everything OK?"
"Your mother's name was Sarah." Bucky Barnes slowly smiled remembering his first happy memories in seventy years. "You used to wear newspapers in your shoes."
Steve smiled seeing something from the time in his past here with him now.
Oliver looked at his best friend. "Clark, if you want to set out and find her you can. I've done a good job at holding down the fort."
Dinah looked at him. "Yeah I believe his exact leading words were 'what would Clark do?'"
Oliver glared at the blond haired Canary. "Tweety and I have had a couple rounds and working together for the past couple months."
Clark looked at Oliver he's going to choose to think he just misinterpreted that as sparring.
Fury walked into the old facility after visiting his own grave… never thought he'd think that again.
Nick Fury entered the base wearing sunglasses and a hoodie. Fury looked over to Sam, Steve, and Bucky. He focused on Steve. "So, you've experienced this sort of thing before?"
Steve nodded. "You get used to it."
"We've been data-mining HYDRA's files. Looks Like a lot of rats didn't go down with the ship. I'm heading to Europe tonight, wanted to ask if you'd come." Fury asked.
Steve shook his head. "I figured someone I knew was unstoppable. I found out on the carrier that wasn't true and the next fight will likely be worse."
Fury turned to the Sam and Bucky. "How about you two? I could use men with your abilities."
Bucky shook his head. "I've been following orders for almost a seventy years. I think I need to figure some things out for my self right now."
"I'm more of a soldier than a spy." Sam replied.
Fury looked at them. "Alright then." Sam, Bucky, and Steve shook Fury's hand. "Anybody asks for me, tell them they can find me in my grave." As Fury left Natasha joined the boys.
The spy looked at the scene and smiled. "You should be honored, that's about as close as he gets to saying thank you."
"Not going with him?" Steve asked
"No." Natasha replied.
Steve looked at her. "Not staying here?"
"I blew all my covers, I gotta go figure out a new one." Natasha replied.
Steve looked at her sadly losing a friend for a while. "That might take a while."
"Maybe." Natasha replied.
Natasha walked right by Chloe and Oliver and simply said. "Take care of him for me."
Oliver looked in confusion as Chloe looked away. Take care of who?
Natasha just kept walking finding the last person she wanted to talk to before leaving. She saw Clark leaning against the wall lost in thought. "So what's on your mind?"
Clark shook his head. "Kara wasn't here. She was kind of our big gun against Darkseid."
"Funny, you're the one who beat him on the carrier." Natasha replied.
Clark shook his head. "I got lucky with a stray shot."
Natasha looked at him confused. "Why do you do that?"
"Do what?" Clark asked.
"Underestimate yourself." Natasha answered. "You killed the big bad."
Clark shook his head. "Didn't kill him. Just obliterated his vessel. Those ravens still got away which means he's still out there. And I've been reading up on Kara's adventures while I was away. Metropolis needs her."
Natasha nodded. "Well, for now they have to settle for you. So you better get home sounds like you have work to do."
Clark looked at her as it sunk in. "You're not coming?"
"My secrets weren't protected by a foreign to earth firewall. Blew up all my old aliases have to make a new one." Natasha replied. "So does that S you wear stand for anything?"
"Hope." Clark answered and smiled. "Or it could mean still in progress. I'm still trying to figure it out."
Natasha let out a smile. "Well it will be an interesting day when you do figure it out. I'll see you around Clark."
Clark smiled watching as Natasha quietly walked out of the base. "See you around."
Chloe smiled walking up to Clark. "So I wanted to thank you for... well I'm just going to say everything since 8th grade."
Clark smiled and playfully put his arm around her. "Anytime, but for now, I think it is long past time for us to go home."
Oliver looked up. "Actually there is one thing since we're all here in this rare moment with the exception of Kara. Before he died Carter ordered me to give the JSA a new name. He didn't want the society's past to drag us down."
Clark looked at him, Bart, AC, J'onn, Victor, Dinah, and Courtney before declaring. "I got nothing."
AC quipped. "The insurgency?"
Victor looked up with a smile. "The Titans" Everyone just looked at him silently. "Hey I'm keeping that."
Chloe held her head knowing what was coming.
Steve looked at her seeing little bits of verbal fighting start but Clark and Dinah breaking it up. "Are they always like this?"
Chloe nodded. "They're best friends you mess with one and all will come running if asked. But sometimes they're as efficient as the League of Nations." Chloe turned to Steve looking at her in thought. Chloe noticed the look and just asked. "What?"
One Month Later
Clark walked into the Daily Planet and quickly went to his desk. His face buried in a newspaper. Across from his desk the newest well re-recruit to the Daily Planet rolled her eyes. How can he still do this after a month.
Chloe looked at him in disbelief. "Second shelf Clark you really gotta start bringing them with you since you just get them from the dollar store."
Clark quickly grabbed the box from the shelf and opened them as he put down the paper and quickly put the glasses on his face. "Remind me again how I let you talk me into this? And then let Zatanna cast that spell?"
Chloe looked at him in an innocent smile. "Talk into is kind of a loose word after the attack on the helicarriers leaked on YouTube" Her and Clark working together to steal a peacock feather of all things but on the bright side thanks to Zatanna anyone who's ever seen Clark and doesn't know his secret just thinks he has always wore glasses since the meteor shower.
"Kent, I need you to give the new girl the tour." A voice said over the PA.
Clark got to his feet. "You figured Tess would have asked this morning."
Clark walked over to the big office and smiled seeing Tess with a black haired woman in glasses.
Tess smiled seeing the boy scout come in. "Clark, I want you to meet our newest employee Laura Matthers, can you show her around?"
Clark smiled and shook her hand. "No problem Ms. Mercer. Ms. Matthers I'm Clark Kent."
"Laura Matthers" Laura replied in a Boston accent as she shook his hand as the two left the office to start the tour.
Once the two were out of earshot Clark quietly whispered right next to her. "So does Tess even know that's you under there?"
Laura looked at him. "What do you mean sir?"
Clark shook his head as his lips curved up. He knows who she is. She's not secretive enough to get past a kryptonian. "Come on you're not getting it past me."
"Funny thing was I did get it past Chloe and Oliver this morning when he drove her in." Laura replied.
Clark looked at her. "So what are you doing here Nat?"
"I had a change of heart. Figured I'd stay near you guys. From the sound of it this fight against the Darkness is just beginning." Natasha replied. "And I can't exactly get the red from my ledger out under SHIELD anymore."
"And Laura?" Clark asked out of curiosity hoping she's not looking into his past and screwing with him.
"Homage to a friend." Natasha replied.
Clark nodded in understanding her motives. Some of the members are like that Oliver and Dinah in particular. Although falling for Lex's Good Samaritan act doesn't seem too bad to Clark's eyes. Clark looked to the wall or more likely through the wall. "Not again!"
Natasha looked at him. "What's wrong?"
Clark shook his head. "Granny's girls are at it again I gotta go. You already know your way around right?"
Natasha stepped aside as Clark headed upstairs. She scouted the Planet and has a couple tools well hidden. She saw that thing come after Clark in a dying man's body and crushed him after piggy backing off an already established plan. The real fight will likely be a whole lot worse. Right now she thinks right here is where she will do the most good. Because it's going to be one hell of a fight once Clark and Darkseid are fully ready.
She smiled watching a red blue blur fly past the city as the next fight starts as it sunk in to her.
This is only the beginning.
Thanks for the reviews
I was planning to write a Wreck It Ralph fanfic. With a SNES Play choice 3 with Super Mario World, Zelda: A Link to the Past, and F-Zero showing up at the arcade. Mario being infuriated that he has to share an arcade with Jumpman since he keeps getting blamed for Jumpman's animal cruelty. Vanelope as a DAD (Damsel Against Distress) What did you think I meant? Basically her against princesses like Peach and Zelda. Find out Zelda thinks her game is real because no one can beat it in 5 minutes for obvious reasons. Leading to Vanelope, Ralph, and Felix surfing the web to try to figure out a way beat the game through glitching in less then five minutes to set the hylians free as they can't risk breaking the game by touching Ganon who knows they're just a game but doesn't want the truth revealed because he wins in here as opposed to Ocarina of Time since no one can beat the game.
With the exception of Jumpman and Mario, replace the VG princesses with Disney Princessess and you'll have something suspiciously similar to wreck it ralph 2 Add to my own very big backlog and that's why I cancelled it PM guy who turned off replies.
As for the sequel, well it will go up at some point but over the past few years I wrote what I could when I could to take my mind off things leaving a mess of stories unfinished while I am putting one new one up because I've been planning it since last year and technically I wrote the first chapter last year. I'm going to focus on finishing ones I fell behind in before posting new ones.
To Arrow fans a very specific crossover you've been waiting very patiently for is going up soon
