A RIP IN THE DIMENSIONAL VORTEX IS RIPPED OPEN AND THE LORD'S FLASH IS SWITCHED WITH THE LEAGUE'S. HOW THE LORD'S SUPERMAN TREATS HIS TEAMMATES IS REVEALED AND THE LEAGUE'S FLASH MAY STILL BE ABLE TO GIVE HOPE TO THE ALTERNITES OF HIS FRIENDS.

Superman threw out a hand to prevent Flash from being sucked into the growing rift. The younger man's eyes were wide as he was tugged out of Superman's grip and sent hurtling into the vortex. A blinding flash of light sent the other Leaguers tumbling back,

" Flash?" A red clad figure was sprawled on the street, breathing heavily. Superman walked over to help Flash up, startled to see the younger man recoil in fear,

" No! I'm sorry!"

" What? Flash, what's the matter with you?"

" It was my fault, Superman, I'm sorry, I won't do it again…I p-promise!" He hastily rose to his feet, bowing his head and raising his hands at Superman. Lantern came jogging up and Flash zipped behind him. Superman watched Flash from the new angle, the speedster seemed thinner, a lot thinner, he had a small scar going across his left cheek and he seemed to be terrified of Superman. Batman also watched the younger man with the same interest everyone seemed to be showing him,

" What's the matter with Flash?"

" That's not our Flash." Batman waited for everyone to stare at him before continuing. He bent down and picked up the small round silver object that had been next to Flash when he landed. It resembled an earlier version of their comm. Links, but instead of the words Justice League, the letters spelled out Justice Lords.

" He's one of them."

I KNOW IT'S SHORT. I'LL UPDATE TOMORROW, I JUST WANTED TO GET IT POSTED

HAPPY B-DAY KAY!!!
