"A little boy laughed so hard he spit up the icy milk he was drinking. He spit it all over a nice black table. That was how the stars were really made. Forget what that science teacher told you, they don't want you to know the real truth! God was made because humanity messed up, oh, they messed up bad!! WE MADE GOD! NOW HE'S MAKING US!" A homeless man ranting his philophies while presumably on an illegal substance illegal not just in America, or just earth, seventy two planets have it banned. "WE MUST KILL GOD AGAIN! WE ARE ON THE WRONG PATH!"
That bum who'S off his rocker now was once Bruce Wayne, now he's just a nameless bum. He got off his own path, refused to go to a silly play so his parents stayed home, they lived the day they were supposed to die. So instead of becoming a caped crusader his parents lived and when they did die he was off being a rebellious 34 yeard old. Bruce Wayne hit rock bottom in this world. Superman landed in the ocean, drowned and had his bones used as a baby rattle for little baby Arthur. Wonder Woman never left her safe, reliable island, she died when it was nuked to smitherens. Hal Jordan never got a shiny emerald ring because Abin Sur didn't crash, nor did he get to fly planes for the rest of his life. No, Hal Jordan just moved to Gotham and sold a drug that was banned in seventy two planets. Their paths were altered.
"REPEAT AFTER ME!" The only sound on the whole earth is a crackle on the sirens that were placed everywhere. Even Bruce shut up with his off the wall theories. The only noise that can be heard is a slight crackle on the bright silver sirens. "THOSE WHO FEAR DOOM, FEAR A TRUE GOD!" Another pause, a briefer one "Now sit and listen to a speech by vice president Johann Schmidt!" One final crackle before the speech. "Atten-chun! It haz come to my attention that viglantism has risen by .005 percent! If one is found working outside the means of the law they will be meet swiftly with Doom's wrath! The President For Life Von DOOM has made his stance on such activities well known. That will be all."
They had to listen to small little speeches from the VP every day at the same time. It helped keep eveyrthing in order. Those who rule were very comfortable and they have every contingency planned for incase a hero somehow makes it onto their rightful path.
This was a quick little free write that I though I would share. I do quite like the universe and may come back to it. Feel free to tell me your thoughts! :)
