We reach out to you from the dark side of the moon
Lumiknight (Alex White): The main protagonist of this series. He was recruited to the Justice League at around age 14. He is 17 when the series begins. Luminkight has the ability to control and manipulate light waves/particles. When he is younger (10 or so), he can only do simple things like turn lights in the room on and off. As he grows, he can do more, such as make his body shine in the dark. At present, he has the ability to focus light energy into concentrated beams. This power, however, is very unstable. He keeps it in check with a suit that Batman and Mr. Terrific helped him to design. He is calm and charming, though not always completely sure of himself.
Eclipse (Eric Lyndon): Lumiknight’s best friend. In terms of abilities, they are polar opposites. Eclipse has the power to manipulate shadows and darkness. He can extinguish the light in a room, disappear into the shadows, and teleport in darkness. He is funny and charming. He tends to play the joker and often comes off as arrogant, though in a likable way.
Roseletta (Sylvia Wallace): She has the ability to control and manipulate plant life. She can also transform her body into vines, thorns, etc. At the start of the series, she is incredibly arrogant and standoffish. Yet, in the right mood, she can be very easy-going and personable.
Ripper (Jack Morris): aka “Jack the Ripper”. His greatest power is his ability to transform his limbs into steel blades at will. He also has superior reflexes and is unnaturally skilled in the use of swords and knives. He is usually very somber, but at times has a dark, sarcastic sense of humor. He is very aloof, rarely seen around people, even ones he considers his friends.
Millenia (Alexa Reynolds): Daughter of deceased villain Max Lord. She uses her mother’s maiden name. Like her father, she has mind control powers. At the beginning of the story, they are only partially developed, but it can be noted that she does not experience blood loss upon using her powers such as her father did. Like the Ripper, she is very aloof, but unlike him, she has no friends whatsoever. She often comes across as having a very high opinion of herself, as well as an elitist view.
Now that you have my DCU recap, you know everything you need to know to understand my fan fiction epic. Read up on that first, then enjoy my ideas….well, I hope you enjoy them.
Ya’ll may want to read this. Othwerise, my fan fiction saga will make no sense to you.
RANDOM GUY: Implying that anyone will read your fan fiction.
ME: Get back in the garrage, you!
Okay, here’s how it goes. We begin with Crisis on Infinite Earths. At this point, there is a multiverse, an infinite collection of parallel universes. A mysterious villain called the Anti-Monitor, from the anti-matter universe, plans to use an anti-matter cloud to annihilate all the positive universes. With each one he destroys, he gains greater power. The Monitor, before his death, gathers many heroes from different universes and unites them against this threat. In the end, all the universes are combined into one, and the Anti-Monitor is destroyed.
This saga picks up again with Infinite Crisis (a very bad comic book, but important nonetheless). In this convoluded mess, several major characters from Crisis on Infinite Earths (who have now gone totally insane) return to the main universe,w hich is on the brink of destruction, in order to remake it into their old one. Byt the end of all that crap, the heroes beat their parallel universe counterparts and prove that this universe is not beyond saving. But in the process, the universe is split once more into a multiverse, this time with 52 parallel worlds, rather than an infinite number of them.
Running at a similar time is the Green Lantern series, where the Green Lantern Corps. faces off against the other six Lantern Corps. (all of which assume a color of a rainbow and are powered by a certain emotion). Looming on the horizon is the threat of the Blackest Night, a terrible event that is talked of only in legend.
Also, we have the Batman epic, where Batman (after banging Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Talia) learns he has a ten year old son named Damien Wayne. They, along with Robin (Tim Drake) and Nightwing (Dick Grayson) face off against a dark, villainous organization called The Black Glove, lead by Dr. Hurt. At the end of Batman R.I.P., Hurt’s army is defeated, and he disappears.
After all this, we have Final Crisis (the biggest event in DC continuity to date). In order to understand this, we must first understand the New Gods. All this takes place in what is called the Fourth World. The Third World was ruled by the Old Gods (we know nothing of the First and Second Worlds). The New Gods have been at war for millions of years. The forces of justice and righteousness are based on the planet New Genesis, and are lead by Highfather and Orion. The forces of evil reside on Apokalips, and are lead by Darkseid (who is Orion’s father). Before the events of Final Crisis, there is a war of the New Gods, and Darkseid wins, killing all the other accept Orion, who then kills Darkseid. But Darkseid’s essence then falls through time and re-manifests itself in human form (along with the other evil New Gods). In his journey outside of space and time, Darkseid discovers the secret of the anti-life equation, a philosophical equation that proves that life is futile. The wielder of it can use the equation to dominate all existence. Once back in the present, the evil Gods use this to take control of all life, svae for a few who manage to escape the equation’s reach. The New Gods then attempt to get new bodies, but all of them except Darkseid die in the process. Darkseid then is the sole dominator of all life. Meanwhile, as the battle for the fate of the universe begins, Superman is pulled to an extra-dimmensional world where he faces a damonic creature called Mandrakk, who seems to be behind the ruin of the multiverse (as well as Darkseid’s power). Superman defeats him temporarily and returns to fight. Meanwhile, another main hero of Final Crisis, Nix Uotan, a Monitor, is banished by his fellow god-like beings and forced to live as a human. Slowly but surely, he fulfills his destiny and rises against Darkseid as well. Meanwhile, Batman manages to shoot Darkseid with a radon bullet, which can kill a God, only to be zapped and “killed” by Darkseid’s Omega beam. The dying Darkseid then faces Superman, and on the brink of victory, he is then trolled and killed by the Black Racer, the embodiement of death. Superman and Nix Uotan then band together to defeat Mandrakk and save the multiverse.
Okay, that was the confusing part. It’s downhill from here.
In Batman, Dick Grayson and Damien Wayne take up the mantle of Batman and Robin. They fight numerous villains, all leading up to a showdown with Dr. Hurt. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne is not dead, but stuck in the time stream due to Darkseid’s Omega effect. There, he learns that Dr. Hurt is an immortal cult leader who seeks to resurrect a bet demon called Barbatos. But Batman returns from the time stream in time to save Dick and Damien, then have his final battle with Dr. Hurt. He then forms Batman Incorporated, and that story is ongoing.
Backtrack a couple years back to Green Lantern. The evnt called The Blackest Night finally happens. Black rings swarm the galaxy and transform the living into undead, unstoppable monsters with all the power of death at their fingertips. All the lantern Corps., along with many other super heroes, band together to fight the black lanterns and their leader, Nekron, one of the other embodiements of death in the DCU (along with the Black Racer and several others). The heroes defeat Nekron with the help of the white lantern of life and drive Nekron and the black lanterns back to purgatory.
As far as I can think, this is all you need to know to understand my massive fan fiction epic.
@wickedaffinity: What in the name of Jesus Christ…………nevermind, I shouldn’t even ask.
@wickedaffinity: You’re about to get shunned. DC is amazing!!!!!!……! Read Crisis On Infinite Earths, then you will understand.
@wickedaffinity: I believe what you meant to say was, “Oh my God, I get the distinct pleasure of reading CountOrad’s fan fiction fo DC comics…….oh, wait…..I’m not up to date on the DC continuity. I’d best remedy this situation, then return tot his blog to read some awesome fan fiction.”
So I’m going to rekindle my own interest by posting fan fiction………about comic books. That’s right, anyone who is up on DC comics will love this humungous fan fiction epic.
At long last, this painful odyssey that spanned 3 1/2 months has come to an end. All is understood, and all is set right. I thank God for granting me this gift that I have prayed so long for. And now, the time has come to move on, to step beyond this little world and make the future happen. Here I go again, though never quite on my own.
