"Yes?"

"Don't need nothing from you, Martian," Clayface muttered as he sat down.

"Then why are you here?"

Clayface grunted and gestured across the pool. "Getting as close to an erection as this body permits by watching Volcana sunbathe."

J'onn put a hand over his eyes. "Of course you are," he sighed.

"So why are YOU here, O Protector of All That is Good and Decent?"

"I am her Ubu. It is expected I remain nearby."

"So you're deriving no pleasure from seeing Talia like this."

"No."

"Not just a little?"

"I'm not like you, Hagen."

"Right. And if she called you and asked you to put more suntan lotion on, you wouldn't enjoy that either."

J'onn shifted uncomfortably. "No," he mumbled.

"Right." Clayface looked away. "All that red hair. It's torture, I tell ya."

J'onn wondered if the rays of the sun might have the same paralyzing effect on Clayface's body as intense heat did. Now THAT would be pleasant.

The End.
