The Weasel of Darkness
Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto.
This is a crossover between the DC universe. I will be continuing this story as it is something that has potential. Do not forget to review !
Charcoal black eyes opened slowly. They snapped close almost immediately after opening. Than seconds slowly went by before the eyes opened again, more cautious than before. The eyes stared ahead before blinking once… twice… and then thrice. Those same eyes looked down to examine their surrounding.
His legs were crossed and he was sitting casually in a massive chair made out of solid rock. His hands were at his side. It was just like when Sasuke had finally confronted him in the Uchiha hideout. He was in a thrown like chair and in a empty warehouse. By the look of it very old and breaking apart. Lastly, he was butt naked.
Itachi didn't like his situation immediately and not just because he was naked. No, he was suppose to be dead. Buried six feet below ground and rotting a little.
Itachi didn't move. He just kept sitting as he tried to remember how he ended waking up in a old warehouse. He died, that was the first thing he could remember. No, he died twice.
He had been brought back to life by Kabuto and used as a puppet through Edo Tensei. Than he broke out of the jutsu's control using Shishui's Mangekyou Sharingan. Helped Naruto seal Nagato in his sword. After that he had fought Kabuto and several powerful dead legends that Kabuto had used as defense. Uzumaki Kushina, Sandaime Kazekage, and the White Fang of Konoha.
Despite the odds he had won by surpassing his limit. And finally he was swallowed in darkness and awoke naked.
Itachi twitched his foot. He hadn't moved a single inch since his eyes had opened and thus he was still expecting a trap if he moved.
Nothing happened, the warehouse remained silent. No traps or hidden enemies. He didn't check for chakra as he would have noticed chakra instantly, if the enemy could conceal their chakra to the point where it couldn't be sensed why bother trying to sense it.
Slowly, but cautious he pulled himself out of the seat. He frowned as he felt cold air touch his body. He brought up his hand in a familiar hand-seal.
His body blurred slightly before he stood still in civilian clothing. Black pant, a pair of black sandals with a white shirt and a necklace around his neck. He could still feel the air, but he wouldn't be seen naked.
Itachi moved his gaze to the roof of the empty warehouse. His eyes drifted to a damaged part of the roof where a hole was present. It was night, he could see a cloudless night. He gathered chakra and moved.
He was outside and he realized that he was in a city. Almost like Ame. Similar, but entirely different. Ame had been made out of mostly metal. The city he was in was a mixture of many things.
Itachi climbed the tallest building. The building was tall. At least twenty stories tall. Despite the cold he reached the top and was amazed at what he saw.
Lights were everywhere. Streets and buildings were glowing in the city. It was such a large city. He could see large piece of metals moving and people walking busily even if it was night.
Despite how amazing the view was, Itachi didn't stare too long and quickly started heading to the busy city. It was cold and he needed real cloths.
Itachi had changed his henge upon seeing the first citizen of the city. A man wearing baggy black pant with chains at the pocket side, and long, and baggy blue sweater with a hood hanging on its back. He was quick to realize that his sense of fashion would stand out like a beacon.
He had changed his appearance to look like the man and had headed looking for a store that sell cloths. He pick pocketed the busy citizens of the city gathering money. Money were different and so were the writings on it. He ignored the information for a more important matters, such as clothings.
He had quickly noticed that he was turning heads within only a hour of roaming the city. Grown women would give him subtle glances as they pass him. Subtle unlike Konoha's female populace that would have even tried to rape him. He also noticed another crucial and important thing. The entire populace of the city didn't speak the same language as he did, meaning he wasn't in the Elemental nation at all since the people's feature were slightly different than his own. His eyes were a bit more sharp than their own, but he had seen a man with eyes far more sharp and narrower than his own, far more sharp. He didn't stand out to much beside his natural good looks.
Itachi stopped when he finally found what he was looking for. The store had glass window allowing him to see rows of clothes hanging on cloth hangers and poles. Shoes were displayed on the bottom of the window.
Itachi entered without hesitating. He walked in with purpose. The workers in the store were mostly women. The cashier was the only male.
Itachi found a similar sweater that he was henge in. He chose along with a black shirt that had writing on it that he couldn't read. He moved onto the pants section. Their were underwear and boxers. He chose a packet of boxers as they only came in packets before choosing a black pant with a chain on its back pocket instead of the side pocket. Shoes were simple to choose, he chose the first pair of white shoes that could fit him along with a packet of socks for his feet.
Itachi didn't know what the cashier said when the man had checked the items with a computer. A computer that was far more advance than the ones he's seen in Orochimaru's lab, back when Orochimaru was a member of Akatsuki. He only saw three digit pricing and pulled out two bills that he had come to realize were the big bills.
The cashier took them and typed in the pricing before giving him his change. Itachi let the man fold the clothes and put them in a bag before taking it.
It wasn't long until he stepped out of a dark alley wearing real clothes. It felt comfortable and warm. His blue sweater warming him nicely, not to mention how soft it was. His pant felt thick, but it was perfect for the cold environment he was in. It prevented cold air from reaching his legs without restricting any of his movements.
Itachi then allowed himself to worry about the crisis he was in. He didn't understand a single word that the city were speaking. He wasn't anywhere in the Elemental Nations anymore. The stars were all different and the city was far more advance. The populace of the city had little chakra. Civilian chakra level and weak by physical standards.
His first and foremost problem was learning their language. He couldn't afford to be noticed so soon with no clue to where he was and be taken in by the authorities of the city. He needed to learn the dirty way, even if he didn't like it. They also seem to have security almost everywhere, he had noticed cameras in the stores and once in a while on random poles.
Itachi once again started walking aimlessly. An hour slowly passed and the night became darker. Passing streets and watching the large transportation devices pass him. He was in search of a unlucky person, one that would give him important knowledge. A simple dumb thug but that wouldn't do, he needed a well educated person.
Itachi eyes caught a woman, a woman dressed in white business like tuxedo for women and a professional looking black skirt. She wore glasses, with her hair tied in a bun, and held a black binder in a secretary like manner. She was coming from the opposite end of the street to where he was. He started walking toward her as she unknowingly walked toward him.
His eyes looked at her's as she came nearer and he walked closing the distance between. Her eyes were looking forward and she moved through the crowd of people with a purpose. Itachi caught her gaze and it was all over for her. The moment she had looked in his eyes, she had fell under his genjutsu.
Itachi played it out as though greeting her. She moved her binder to her left hand and smiled at him. Itachi took hold of her free hand and started leading her to find a secluded area.
It wasn't long until he found a bench and sat her down with him. His charcoal black eyes met her glazed brown eyes and he started pulling information out of her.
Itachi stared at her brown eyes that are staring at him still. Her mind had shattered from the extraction. It was unfortunate that her mind was too fragile to handle the stress of having her mind entered. He gave a final order to her mind before getting up.
Itachi struggled before bidding her goodbye in her language. "Goodbye Lisa."
The language was hard to speak and the sound of his voice alien to his own ears.
He started heading through the streets again as Lisa got up and started moving to find a tall building. He would have let her lived, but he didn't want to leave even a single trace of himself behind and her mind was shattered. He hadn't touched her and had covered his body odor by blocking his pores with chakra. Killing her was making sure his existence wasn't revealed until he was ready and knew what the city was capable of and if the entire world was like that. He couldn't afford to leave a loose end.
He needed to know more about Gotham city.
Itachi knew that he didn't have time to find a place to live. He would have to sleep in the streets for several days before finding a place, but he'd be damn if he slept in the street when he could find a temporary place, maybe places. He didn't sleep outside unless he needed to. From what he learned sleeping in the street was a perfect way to find trouble, especially in Gotham.
Itachi had passed a restaurant and had found way to find a safe place to sleep temporarily. He started searching for another candidate. Someone that was non threatening nor potential to be immediately. Someone weak and female, which was almost every female in sight except the few that looked fit and strong.
Itachi entered a small restaurant. Tables were neatly aligned and customers were eating. The lights were blue giving every costumer a bluish color.
Itachi ordered a single shake and took a seat alone. It wasn't long before he noticed a red haired woman give him a subtle look. Her ocean blue eyes checking him out. She was twenty and slightly fit. Her body was thin and she wore a blue top with a black coat that kept her warm and a black pant that hugged her legs, she had blue sneakers.
Itachi prepared himself and gave her a small fake smile. She smiled back with a small curious glean behind her eyes.
Itachi eyes snapped open. He stayed still trying to recall why he was in a bed and not dead. Slowly he remembered. His ignored the jaw dropping beauty lying next to him.
He got out of the bed and realized that he was almost naked. He was wearing his blue colored boxer and nothing else. He looked back to the woman lying in bed wrapped in her soft white blanket. He hadn't slept with her, but he had used Genjutsu to have her thinking he did. He had mixed reality with illusion to make her believe the illusion instead of waking up and feeling like it was more like a dream than reality.
He found his clothes that were lying on the floor. He gathered them and found the shower. He cleaned himself. He was done quickly and found himself staring at a mirror. His hair was starting to grow too long.
Itachi used the bathroom to fix his hair. His bangs were always there and part of him, but his small ponytail needed to go. He used the scissor that the bathroom had to cut it off and adjust his hair. His hair grew slightly spike like without his ponytail to hold it in place.
He put the scissor down and looked to the bathroom's door where Erica stood. He had gotten to know a lot about her, while only telling her a fake history of himself.
"Are you going stay?" she asked with her blue eyes curiously staring at him. She was biting her lips meaning she wanted him to stay.
Itachi shook his head slowly. "No."
Itachi easily noticed her disappointment. Her eyes had shifted uncomfortably and her expression struggling to keep from showing any negative emotions.
"Ok than, goodbye," she said before leaving the bathroom door and leaving him alone.
Itachi put on his clothes. His brand new sweater gave him a glowing color along with his slightly baggy pant. He looked fresh.
He left Erica's apartment shortly. Breaking hearts wasn't anything new. He was a master of his own emotions and would never let his emotion control him so easily.
Itachi found himself walking aimlessly in Gotham city. Information from Lisa had safely sync with his mind. The sleep had done him good. The world was divided between seven continents. One which was uninhabitable due to the constant weather.
Super powers were rare. Those that had powers were either Heroes or Villains. Gotham had one hero known as Batman, a man with no power as far as Lisa had known.
Itachi snapped himself out of his musing when he spotted a tall building that was a apartment. It was maybe twenty story tall, but if he could rent an apartment inside it didn't matter.
The building had a revolving door that was made out of glasses. The inside was a comfortable looking lobby with a warm lighting. Seats were placed spaciously in the lobby. A man wearing a blue security uniform sat behind a desk guarding a hall that led to stairs and two elevator entrances.
Itachi made his way to the man.
"How can I help you sir" greeted the man with a polite tone.
"I'm looking for a place to stay and this building caught my interest," replied Itachi in a monotone voice. His voice laced with authority.
The apartment was big. Too big for a single person. The rent was very expensive, but it was what he needed. He had almost entire story to himself.
The place was already decorated and furnished. The kitchen had all necessary equipments needed to cook and a refrigerator. The living room was incredibly big and had soft white couches nicely arranged. The window of the building was basically his wall. He could stand next to his 'wall' and see the streets below the building. He could see business men and women alike moving through the streets busily and other flashier looking ones move around.
Itachi now knew he was out of money and needed a job after getting such a expensive place. Jobs needed identification and he didn't know anyone that could create counterfeits.
Itachi mentally sighed and sat down on one of the couches. He grabbed the tv control lying on one of the glass tables near and turned the tv on. A large flat screen Tv.
Itachi stared silent at the Tv as he saw the news. It was about Lisa. Witness were claiming that she had moved crying through the street before she found a tall building and jumped off. Police were baffled as to why she would kill herself. Her career had been going very well and had been close to getting promoted in the Wayne industry. Lisa Elenor is believed to have been murdered.
Itachi turned the Tv off. He had made sure to leave no trace of himself when he had met her. She was a red light, meaning people would check her death, it was a given since she worked for Wayne industry. He wasn't proud of having killed her for knowledge, but he wasn't ashamed to kill for his own survival. She had been a perfect candidate to give him knowledge, despite the risk that he now knew about her.
Itachi closed his eyes in thought. He needed to advance his knowledge. Internet, yes that would give him minimal information about Villains and Heroes. But first he needed to find a job.
Itachi realized that he couldn't get a decent job without money and connection. Education was also very important it seemed. He couldn't get a identity or education without money, everything led back to money. Large amount of money that he would need to steal.
Stealing was nothing he would hesitate on. He had stolen various priceless artifacts for Konoha when he had been a member of Anbu. He preferred stealing over killing anytime.
Despite being known as a clan killer, and S-rank missing nin, his real skilled was in becoming a ghost. To make sure that no one even noticed his actions until he was long gone.
Itachi planned a way to attain the money he needed. He had gotten ahold of a black mask, one much like Hatake Kakashi's. That and a black sweater that had a long black hood he would put on. A new black pant that he would use for robbery. White sport walk shoes and white gloves to keep his fingerprints from being found. No weapons, he wasn't aiming to kill in his heist and that was if he was even seen or caught.
Banks were harder to choose. He needed one that was strategically placed farther away from the police station. One that if by chance he were seen, than he'd have a small amount of time to leave. Gotham bank was the best choice. Its security was known to have failed against Villains who had robbed the bank various time. From what he gathered the Villains go about robbing a bank... Stupidly. They announce it to the world instead of silently robbing the bank.
Itachi sat silently next to a statue that was on the roof of a building. It was might and he was in disguise. A mask covering his mouth and nose, with a simple black hooded sweater that covered his head. Black pant and white shoes. It was simple instead of expensive ninja wear.
The bank was close, and their were four guards in the bank's lobby from what he gathered. The bank had security cameras and a HQ where a guard sat watching all cameras for any anomalies. At least that was what he had gathered from the reports of previous robberies that was published by the newspaper.
Itachi jumped from the building he was on and started free falling toward the bank, which was at least five stories shorter. He landed with a soft landing, he used wind manipulation to make him drop softly on the roof.
Itachi slowly used an earth jutsu and slowly melded into the floor of the roof. He appeared inside the building, a hall with only one light panel that only gave enough light for the cameras that were across the ceiling.
Itachi moved cautiously and avoided the cameras. He used his unique skill to keep to the ceiling to avoid the cameras that were only focused on the ground. He crawled against the ceiling and made his way to where the vault should be.
Itachi came upon a large steel door. He could see cameras waiting to see him. There were cameras looking at every angle, even the ceiling. Itachi sighed as he hadn't wanted it to come to this.
Itachi stayed out of the cameras sight and reached a single camera, focusing his chakra he touched the camera. Lightning sizzled from within the camera before light everywhere was shut off.
Itachi moved immediately and brutally blew apart the steel door with a katon jutsu. Finesse was abandon for result and he didn't have time.
Itachi entered the vault and came to a slight halt at the amount of money before him. Pulling out a single scroll he placed it on top of a square block of money that looked like it would need a forklift to move.
Itachi activated the scroll and the large block of neatly stacked money was gone. He picked up the scroll and started running out. He was already back on the roof within ten second and jumping from roof to roof within the minute.
Itachi moved discreetly in the night, going into many different places and henging into different people. He had walked through the city mixing in with crowds before finally reaching his home. He had done it on the off chance that someone would follow him.
Batman always investigated when something odd happened. Like a coincidence, or suicide, all which he check and research to make sure no crime went unpunished. A secretary of Bruce Wayne dying, that immediately demanded attention.
He had immediately checked her behavior at work on the day she died. Using the security feed from Wayne industry showed him her life. She hadn't showed any signs of a stressed worker or symptoms of suicidal thoughts. She had friends and a family that gave her support.
It didn't add up, so he started looking for more security recordings. She left work at 9 p.m and punched her hour before leaving with a single folder. A chart of the economy and how Wayne industry should prepare. Nothing too important as it was only pieces of the bigger picture.
Using his resource he obtained recordings of the streets following her actions. She was heading for the general direction of her home, when she suddenly greeted a black haired man as though he were her longtime friend. The camera didn't get his face, the man avoid all cameras.
Batman let the scene play out despite how odd it was. She left with the man smiling, and little by little she disappeared from the public cameras sight. Than an hour shortly she reappears alone and with no expression.
Bruce frowned behind his mask and replayed the first meeting. The camera showed the back of the mysterious man and shows Lisa Elenor walking toward the camera. He zoomed on her face and it showed it just looking forward. Bruce increased the resolution of the video.
Bruce made his computer focus on her expression. Replaying the video her expression seemed to become blank and her pupils dilated upon seeing him. It wasn't a look of recognition or surprise. It was a lack of response, and it wasn't shock either. Her expression changed mechanically from than on. Her mouth moving in greeting was false.
Bruce tried to read her lip while she was greeting to the mysterious man, he couldn't as he realized it was only mouth movement. She probably hadn't even spoken a single word.
Bruce started back playing on the man. He found other cameras and started playing camera one by one trying to find where the man had come from. Each clip he got only showed the man's back.
The man was very skilled. The cameras never caught the man's face.
Bruce had lost the man several time completely and had to search through security recordings that surrounded each last known location. It wasn't long until he finally got his first lead. A clothing store. The man had entered to buy similar clothes that he was already wearing.
A young man looking to be just twenty-one walked through the entrance of the clothing store. A blank expression with charcoal black eyes, sharp eyes that gave him a small resemblance to Japanese, but nowhere as pronounce as them.
Bruce frowned as he tapped his computer to pause on the expression. It had taken a long time to back trap and find the suspect.
The man didn't kill Lisa Elenor. Elenor had jumped off a ten story building alone. The man had left her and she had gone on her own way.
Bruce didn't like how everything added up. Using the man's face he started trying to get a name.
He didn't get anything. The man was a ghost. No name, no history and the face didn't even exist.
He had just stumbled upon an organization member. A secret organization maybe or an assassin.
Bruce started finding all security recording that had the man in them. Only two clips were found. One was a small glimpse of the man leaving a building. Second was the same camera barely seeing the man returning to the same building.
Bruce frowned as he mentally started listing everything about the mysterious man. He hadn't found the man's motive or name. The man seemed very intelligent and calculating.
Bruce connected his computer to the building that he had found the man entering. He type in the day and hour of when the man entered.
The black haired man entered and had a short conversation with the man before filling in a application, than talking to the owner of the building. The man proceeded to pay the owner handsomely before being given a key.
Bruce frowned at the shady deal done. The young man started walking than seemed to blur across the hall of the building as though the security camera had skipped frames.
Bruce replayed it immediately. The owner left and the man seem to blur across the hall. Bruce slowed the footage down and it still wasn't fast enough to see the movements.
Bruce clicked his tongue and started playing the video frame by frame. He got what he wanted, but not what he wanted.
The young man had moved and disappeared just as he did the first time, but this time he stopped and looked at the camera with red eyes that had three dots in it before moving onward.
Bruce didn't like that action. It was a reward, the man had given him a bonus as though rewarding whoever manages to locate him. Why else would the man do such a thing in the hall of his own building when he had been so cautious getting there.
Bruce replayed the video again. This time he watched the eyes change from charcoal black eyes to red with three comma like dots surrounding the pupil.
Bruce pressed a button on his keyboard. Statics crackled before answered.
"Its Batman. I'm going to need your help."
After hours of tracking and replaying videos he would finally meet this new criminal. His gut was telling him that he wouldn't regret calling for back up.
Itachi entered the lobby of the building he stayed at. He greeted the security guard with a small nod before entering the elevator.
Itachi was wearing his casual clothes, which consisted of his blue hooded sweater, a black pant, and white Nike.
He waited patiently as the elevator took him to the twelve floor. The floor that he live in. As he neared it he sensed two chakra signature that weren't suppose to be there.
The elevator opened and revealed the hall of the twelfth floor. There were only two doors in the middle of the hall. One on the left and the other on the right. He felt disappointed in himself that he was discovered so soon.
Itachi walked forward and out of the elevator. He took his time getting to his door. The two people in his apartment had chakras stronger than normal people, one felt strong collective and calm, while the other felt strange and wild.
Itachi didn't bother using his key. He opened it to show that it was already unlocked. He didn't lock it to begin with. The lights were off. Itachi entered the living room and flicked the light switch on.
Itachi walked forward to the window and took a seat in one of his couch. He faced the direction of his visitors.
"You noticed," stated Batman as he stepped out of the wall he had been hiding behind, with a second person stepping out with him.
Itachi kept silent as he took in who had found him. Batman, rumored to be the smartest man alive.
"I'm impressed. You live up to your reputation since you managed to find me," complimented Itachi in his monotone voice. His eyes slowly checking the second visitor.
"It wasn't easy," replied Batman and took several steps forward. "So will you turn yourself in or do we have to do this the hard way."
"I wouldn't want the entire Justice League after me if I were you…," commented Superman casually and waited for a name.
"Itachi," replied Itachi calmly giving his name. His face was already seen, and he already was found by them. "Uchiha."
"Heartlessly killing, I've seen your type before," supplied Batman as he pulled out bat shaped shurikens.
Itachi's eyes changed into the Sharingan before morphing into the Mangekyou Sharingan. "That's up for debate."
Itachi blurred away from the couch as shurikens dug into it.
Superman moved crossing the distance between them quickly.
Itachi saw the man pulling his arm back to deliver a powerful punch.
"No finesse, just a brute," commented Itachi as he easily dodged the reckless punch and delivered the most powerful counter he could. Itachi felt as though he had truly hit metal when his fist made contact.
Superman was sent flying through the building and breaking the walls.
Itachi shifted his attention to Batman who threw black pellets at him.
Itachi held in his breath as the pellets exploded into sleeping gas. Itachi grabbed a chair and threw it at the building's window.
The window shattered creating a large hole. Sounds were quickly heard. Cars were beeping down the street.
Itachi flashed through hand-seals before facing Batman who was running toward him. Itachi opened his mouth unleashing a giant fireball halting Batman.
Itachi used that opportunity to jump put of the broken window. His body dispersed into black crows as he disappeared.
Batman stared down the street trying to find him. Finding none he turned to Superman who was pulling himself up from the rubbles of the walls that he had gone through.
"He got away," stated Batman as he looked to the spot where Superman was hit. It was red meaning that it had hurt the man of steel and the place was the neck.
"His punch it had me struggling to breath," stated Superman as he held his throat, unconsciously rubbing it.
"He's a master of martial arts, extremely fast, detecting power of some kind, and strength that could hurt you. His eyes also changed, change is such as that is usually bad and the ability to disappear in flocks of black crows," commented Batman as he stared down the street.
"Don't forget calm, more calm than even you. He didn't bat an eyelash when he saw us," reminded Superman and cleared his throat as his voice came out slightly rough.
"Itachi, it is Japanese, it means Weasel," supplied Batman as he tried to make a connection of the man's power with the name.
"He breathed fire," replied Superman and rubbing his head as though he missed something. "Whatever he can do, his name has nothing to do with it."
Batman nodded. Most of the time a villains name usually said what their power was. This wasn't that type of time.
"We need to report this to the Justice League," said Superman before he jumped out of the building and flew out of sight.
Batman pressed a button on his belt and waited for his Batwing.
