Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely...what about super power?
The JLA meant well, but like the old adage, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions! They took over the world, the heroes that once protected now ruled and with that rule the lines got blurred and before they knew it or could stop it, they were dictators. In their minds they are doing what is best for mankind, mankind disagrees.
The year is 2065, not too far away. Superman and his queen Wonder Woman are the head of the League, Martian Manhunter their head of the secret police. Batman was killed in 2063, but his brain survives in a jar awaiting a high-tech cyborg body to be completed. Green Lantern was killed for insubordination by Superman who now wields his power ring, he also uses the Helmet of Nabu making him almost a god. Aquaman tried to restore the League to its former ideals and was hurled into the sun. Others fell into line or suffered a similar fate.
So now the children and grandchildren, and some great grandchildren, of the villains and heroes have started to unite and fight back. But revolution is slow, especially when their enemy can hear clouds scrape together and his chief of police is a psychic intangible shapeshifter.
Superman: The ruler of Earth. Now has a GL power ring and the helmet of Nabu. He used the ring and the helmet to locate all the world's kryptonite and cast it into the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way.
Wonder Woman: Superman's queen and mother of two year old Clark. Trainer of the Hawkmen.
Batman: Kept alive by science, the Dark Knight's brain lives in a jar awaiting the building of a cyborg body.
Martian Manhunter: The head of the secret police, SHADE
The Hawkmen: The regular patrolling soldiers of the League. All loyal cloned troops from the original Hawkman
Deranger: is the unofficial leader of the revolution. His parents were Ravager and Batman Quinn, making him the grandson of both the Joker and Deathstroke. Holds the last four pieces of natural kryptonite on Earth, three green and one red.
Code Red: The daughter of Jesse Quick and Red Lantern Jack Moore, is superfast and able to create objects out of the speed force, but only when she's angry. Acts as the messenger for the revolution.
Escrima: A mysterious vigilante operating in direct defiance of the League. Using from all reports Big Barda's Mega-Rod and Starman's Cosmic Rod, she regularly attacks Hawk patrols in Keystone City. So far she has evaded all attempts to catch her, boding the question of WHEN Superman will step in to the fray.
So there's the pitch, any one interested? I will set up PM after expressions of interest below and write the opening chapter to set the tone. I intend this to be a , because without an end point or goal we may end up like DC: 5th World which started great but then lost its way and faded away.
