A man sits in a small dark room humming to himself with a frown across his face .
the door that lays before him opens and a man step out .
the man lets out a light smile before he sits on the other side of the 1st man .
" well well Mr Merkel " the man says with a grin " my name is Jim Corrigan and it so nice to meet you in the flesh " .
" i know who you are" Merkel says " your that tec with the rich bitch for a girl " he giggles.
Corrigan ignores the insult " so you have quite the job don't you , i didn't think that you would ever be took down but here you are " he says.
" yeah and i wouldn't have been if it weren't for that fucker in the gas-mask " Merkel says .
Corrigan bursts in to laughter " haha you mean you expect me to believe that the sandman came for you "
" oh i wouldn't be saying that if i were you " Merkel says " hes very real and he has eyes as black as the night sky " .
" yeah right " Corrigan says dusting down his short black hair " oh yeah and next you will be telling me that a guy will dress up as a bat 25 years from now"
" oh fu-" Merkel is cut off as two men drag him to his cell " you and Swift should start a club " Corrigan yells .
Corrigan smiles and picks up his phone and dills the number of his best friend and childhood crush Dinah Drake.
" hello ? " Dinah asks " is this Jim ?" she asks nicely with a slight Irish hint to her voice .
" yup that's me " Corrigan says " i was going to ask if you would like to come with me and the wife to the boxing match tonight "
" sure i would love to " , " we could ask Wesley to come too " she says.
" that would be nice " Corrigan says " the three of us were so close in high school ".
" yup i allways found it cute that both of you had a thing for me" she giggles.
" anyway i got to go bye " Corrigan says kindly with a blush on his face .
" bye " Dinah says then she makes a kissing sound and hangs up.
a thug runs down into the dark city with sweat running down his face .
but he looks up to see a man in a gasmask and hat stares down at him from the roof top above .
" oh go-" he says as a gas ball hits the floor and blows up .
the man in the mask picks up the body and ties it up for the cops .
" happy dreaming " he says to the body .
he runs home and unmasks .
He puts on his casual cloves and runs to the boxing match that he was invited to .
[ At the boxing match ]
The three long time friends standout out side the boxing ring as they look out for Wesley Dodds .
Once Wesley gets to them they all sit down and watch as the main event steps on the ring .
" Ted's is the master at this " one man says .
" Yeah he could kick anyones ass " a woman says .
As the four watch Ted grant fight his way to the top Dinah moves her head in to Wesley 's chest and smiles.
In a dark room a man looks at the screen that lays before him and smiles .
" When the sky turns purple " he says to himself " when the sky turns purple"
He says as the screen shows four men that have been chosen for his plans.
