I know I promised you a longer chapter and here it is, it was actually much longer, but I cut it in half just to add suspense, hope you like it and please review.

David Xanatos finished examining the schematics for a new satellite, as much as he liked being more directly involved with the league he couldn't have them living in the castle much longer, it was too dangerous for his family, he folded the blueprints and placed them inside a vault then turned to look out the window.

"Beautiful morning, isn't it sir?" Owen walked into the office.

"It certainly is" David smiled, "How are the preparations going?"

"Everything is moving along as scheduled" the assistant answered.


"There's just one thing…" the Owen added.

"One thing?" Xanatos frowned, "Everything has to be perfect; what is it?"

"" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" ""

"Richard!" Xanatos faked a smile as he walked up to the uncostumed Batman, "What are you doing here, it's been a while since you last reported to the league, I didn't think you'd…"

"You didn't think I'd come?" Dick too faked a smile, "Or you didn't want me to come?"

Xanatos's face became serious, "I didn't think you'd come back after what happened last time"

"Reed Richards is a monster, his kind killed…!"Dick turned away and lowered his voice, "…He deserves to die…they all do"

"Is that why you're here?" Xanatos raised an eyebrow, "today?"

"I don't mean to cause any trouble" Dick looked at Xanatos in the eye, "I need to talk to superman"

"He's away on League business"

"When will he be back? It's important"

"Tonight" Xanatos answered, "But…"

"Don't worry" Dick Grayson said as he walked away, "I'll come in, talk to superman then leave, I won't ruin Nightstone's wedding"

"I can't believe it's finally here!" Kitty shouted happily.

"Calm down kitty" Susan storm said as she placed the veil on Rogue, "Rogue's the one getting married"

"I know" Kitty smiled, "But I love weddings, and I can't believe the special day's finally here!" Kitty stood up.

"I just hope everything goes all right" Rogue said timidly

"All right?" Kitty asked, "Of course everything is going to go all right, One of the richest man in the world is paying for your wedding, what more could you ask for?"

"I just…I don't believe in happy endings"

"Well your story's going to have one" Kitty placed her hands on Rogue's shoulder's "Look at you, they turned to face the mirror, "You look beautiful"

Suddenly they heard a gurgle, "Hey honey?" Rogue turned towards a wooden bassinet, "did we wake you?" she tickled the small baby as she kissed it on the forehead"

"Okay" Kitty interrupted, "Time for tradition!"

Suddenly Diana walked out of the crowd of bridesmaid and placed an Amazonian golden necklace on her Rogue's neck, "Something old" she smiled as she walked away.

"Something new" Kitty opened a box and placed a small golden chain around Rogue's ankle.

"Something borrowed" Ororo took off a stylized wooden hairpin and placed it on rogues hair.

"And something blue" Susan placed a blue rose at the center of the bouquet.

"Nervous?" Peter asked as he straightened Tom's tie.

"No, why would I be nervous" his voice was shaky and barely audible, "Ok, maybe a little"

"We've fought zombies and traveled through dimensions" Peter finished straightening the tux and patted Tom on the back, "How hard can saying "I do" be?"

"Yeah, let's just hope I don't mess this up like I did with the zombie thing"

"You won't" Peter said reassuringly, "but if you want I can arrange a teleprompter in case you forget the words?"

"Thanks" Tom smiled, "But I don't think that'll be necessary"

The sun disappeared on the horizon and Goliath woke up with his usual roar, "Elisa!" he said happily at the sight of his good friend, "It's nice to see you"

"Nice to see you too" the human smiled, "I'm sorry I haven't been here in a while, the Metropolis P.D. is a lot more demanding than New York ever was"

"As long as you're all right"

"I am…so is everyone ready for tonight?"

"Tonight?" the Gargoyle asked.

"Tom's wedding, don't tell me you forgot? He's practically part of your clan"

"I Know, we were few gargoyles in the other world, we're probably the only ones in this one, he's one of us, even if he is a half breed"

"Not to mention he's Angela's half brother" Elisa added.

"Yes that too"

In the castle garden, rows of seats and an altar had been placed, guests were all ready greeting each other and taking their seats as Goliath and Elisa descended. "Mary Jane!" Elisa said happily as she greeted the red head, "How've you been? Where's Peter?"

"With the groom, probably giving him advice disguised as jokes"

"That does sound like him" Fox said as she and Xanatos walked up to them, "Ladies, would you excuse us?" he added as he pulled Goliath away from the girls.

"What is it?" Goliath followed Xanatos in to the main hall.

"We were gonna ask you if you could spare someone from the clan?" Tony Stark walked up to them, "Almost everyone is here for the wedding, so we thought it would be best to still have a team out on patrol"

"I'm sure Hudson would rather keep watch on the city"

"Good, Green arrow, Ben, Kevin, Danny and Ms. Marvel will join him"

"" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" ""

"Superman" Dick Grayson walked up to Clark Kent, "I need to talk to you"

"Yes, Xanatos told me; Can't this wait? The ceremony will be starting in a few minutes"

"This won't take long" Dick said as he pulled out folder, "It's been almost a month since we raided Reed Richards base, and there hasn't been any sign of him or his super freaks since"

"I know, so?"

"Well, I've been investigating and I found this" he handed Superman the folder so he could see several papers and pictures, "A psychiatric hospital in blüdheaven; much like Arkham"

"It says here there was a gas leak, the place exploded"

"Yeah, police say no one made it, all the patients were burned alive, and guess what?"


"It happened two nights after the raid"


"It seemed suspicious so I went to examine things better, turns out there were no bodies; the patients, the staff, guards, doctors, janitors, everyone just disappeared"

"And you think Dr. Richards had something to do with this?" Superman examined the file, "Why would the police cover up…?"

"The police department in Blüdheaven is completely corrupt, a simple bribe could have been enough to alter the official files"

"You're right, it is suspicious, but there's also nothing to link this with Reed Richards, we'll talk about this tomorrow, with the rest of the League, then we'll decide what to think about this" Superman closed the folder "Are you staying for the ceremony?"

"No" Dick began to walk away, "Batman will be out on patrol tonight"

Ms. Marvel, Hudson, Danny Phantom, and an alien transformed Ben were flying through the Metropolis night sky while Green Arrow and Kevin followed on motorcycles down below.

"Looks like it's a slow night guys" Oracle spoke though their communicators, suddenly they heard an alarm going off, "Nevermind"

"A break in at a jewelry store" Ms. Marvel said as she landed by the door, and looked inside, "And by a couple of ordinary thugs; this IS a slow night"

By the time the other's got to the door Ms. Marvel was standing over the unconscious bodies, "Even before the zombie attack, I aced at secret wars and alien invasions, I thought there were super villains in this world? Or at least something bigger than a pair of thugs"

"There are, and lets hope you get to meet them later rather than sooner"

"Looks like it's going to be the other way around green arrow" Oracle spoke through the communicator.

"What's the problem lass?" Hudson asked.

"Trouble, in Luthorcorp"

"Why am I not surprised?" Green arrow jumped on to his motorcycle and sped off as everyone followed.

The music started and everyone turned around as Rogue appeared at the back, at the end of the aisle she could see Tom standing by the altar smiling back at her, slowly she continued walking, accompanied by David Xanatos who represented the hope of all the survivors that had arrived to this new world; he had taken charge and made sure they'd stayed alive, he had gained the respect of everyone by his commitment to their safety. That was why Rogue had trusted him enough to have him be her son's godfather, and that was why she believed it was he who should walk her down the aisle, he had given them all a new life after everything had been lost and thus he was like a father to all of them.

They finally reached the altar where a priest was waiting for them, with a small gesture Xanatos placed Rogue's hand on Tom's and stepped away.

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered her this night to…"

"This is the place all right" Danny said as they approached a building with a large hole on the side.

"You wanted super Villains? Looks like you're about to get them" Green arrow said to Ms. Marvel as they approached the entrance.

"Oracle" Hudson spoke through the communicator, "What are we up against lass?"

"I'm hacking into the security camera's as we speak" Barbara answered as her fingers raced through the keyboard, "Well look at who we have here"

"Who is it?"

"John Corben, Aka Metallo, he's a cyborg, almost as strong as Superman, he is powered by a kryptonite heart in his chest"

"Well then it's a good thing big blue isn't here"

The team slowly entered the building and began walking down a hall, as they continued inward, they began hearing a banging sound which only kept getting louder and louder as they advanced.

"He's trying to break in to one of the labs" Oracle added.

"Any Idea what's on the other side?"

"I don't know yet, firewalls are tough, whatever it is, Luthor's got it well protected"

The group continued walking towards the loud sound until it suddenly stopped, "He is in!" Oracle shouted, "He broke in"

"Time to hurry then!" Green arrow shouted as the group set forward in full speed.

"What no superman?" Metallo was sitting calmly on a chair when the group reached him.

"We don't need him to stop you Metallo!"

"Doesn't matter, I've already done what I was paid for, now all I have to do is have fun!"

Metallo charged at Green arrow but before he could land his attack he was tackled by Fourarms, "Superman isn't the only strong one around here!"

"" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" ""

"…If anyone believes that this two should not be wed, speak now, or forever hold your…"


Peter struggled to get up, around him he could see people running around, his vision was still blurry, and his ears were still ringing from the explosion, "What…what's happening?" he asked.


There was another explosion and he was sent flying across the yard, "What's wrong? Why isn't my spider sense working?"

He heard another explosion a few feet away and was finally able to see what was happening.

"G…Green Goblin?"

"" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" ""

Kevin ducked to evade a punch from Metallo then placed his hands on the villain's legs, then quickly right hooked him with metallic hands, "good alloy, nice and shiny; and pretty strong too"

Ms. Marvel flew past Kevin, caught Metallo on the air and with a quick turn sent him flying against a wall.

Suddenly a siren began ringing as red lights began to flash all over the place, "What's going on?" Ben asked as he returned to his human form.

"It's done!" Metallo began to laugh, "You're doomed! You're all doomed!"

"What do you mean?" Ms. Marvel said as she smashed him against the wall, "What did you do?"

"Do?" Metallo laughed, "All I did was set him free"

The castle was surrounded in chaos as people ran through the halls trying to figure out what was happening, "Osborn!" Peter Parker shouted as he took off his tux revealing his spiderman costume under it, he swung up to one of the towers, hoping that it really wasn't either father or son.

"Wrong!" the green creature shrieked as it dove towards him, tossing an explosive pumpkin Peter was barely able to evade but was finally able to see his opponent clearly.

"You must be one of Reed Richard's freaks he said as he kicked something that resembled a green gargoyle wearing a goblin's costume.

"My powers were designed especially for you Spiderman!"

"Too bad for you he's not alone!" Ironman said as he and Xanatos appeared fully armored.

"Neither is he !" they turned around and saw as a man ran at super speed around the side of the building then stopped and shouted, "Flame on!" Flamebullet took flight he began throwing fireballs at the armored heroes.

"Hey! That's my line!" The human said as he too became engulfed in flames but as he jumped to become air born, a stone hand grabbed him and pinned him against the floor,

"Not any more" Stone Banshee said as she began to use a supersonic scream to turn off her opponents flames.

"Johnny!" Susan storm ran towards her brother but was stopped by a series of vines growing from the garden.

"You can't save your brother" a tall brunette walked up to her, "You can't even save yourself!" the woman's body turned into a diamond form and she began punching a force field Susan had risen to protect herself.

"Where are all this creeps coming from?" Static asked as he saw everyone fighting Reed's super powered creations.

"From here!" Virgil was thrown to the ground as a man appeared out of a portal.

"Ebon!" Static said angrily.

"" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" ""

Ms. Marvel was thrown out of the building and Hudson landed next to her to help her up, "Are you ok Lass?"

"Yeah, What…what is that thing?"

There was another explosion and they saw a creature jump out of the building and land a few blocks away, "Come on, we gotta stop that thing!" Kevin shouted as he and green arrow ran out of the building.

Four arms grabbed one of the creature's arms trying to get it to loose it's balance but the creature easily threw him against a building.

"Are you ok Ben?" Danny landed next to him as he transformed back to his human form.

"Yeah, but he's…he's too strong"

"What is that thing?"

"I've seen one like it once" Green arrow and the others approached the group, "it nearly killed superman, it's name was doomsday, and this one…this one seems to be a modified version, we're going to need backup"

On this chapter I wanted to see what it would be like for some of the Marvel universe survivors to face off against a DC villain, I felt metallo was a nice choice although someone a bit stronger would have been much better, but hey they still have to deal with this new "Doomsday" Type monster Lex had hidden in his labs. Hope you liked it, and please review.
