Summation: It wasn't supposed to go like this. A confrontation between Klarion the Witch-Boy and Dr. Fate/Kid Flash goes horribly wrong.

Disclaimer: How I wish I owned Klarion, the (bum bum BUM) Witch-Boy…

Klarion panicked.

He was trying to get away now—to get anywhere, anywhere away from here—but could only manage a feeble grey flicker. It pulsed like a rapid heartbeat before completely evaporating. No time to figure out the how's or the why's; something was keeping him from using his magic. Which would have been great if it affected both sides of the battle… Except it only seemed to be hindering him and the "battle" had quickly become one-sided mystic attacks that Klarion desperately dodged, trying to drum up any line of magical defence.
