I have a lot of fan-fic notes from the late 1990's, and just a few scenes that I wrote. Mainly focusing on DC, I wanted to write a generational fan-fic, where the DC characters aged, died, and were replaced. This involved a lot of name-switching and history-tweaking.
I have other plans for Superboy & Supergirl, so I wanted to do something with the Matrix Supergirl and Kon-El. I named them Captain Marvel and Powerboy. This scene was really just a short thing I wrote in a notebook back in 2011, and it needs to be fleshed out some more later, but this is what I started with:
The press gathered near the site of Superman's Memorial, eager to know about the two new heroes in Metropolis. A reporter called out, "Miss! Miss! What's your name?"
The blonde heroine, hovering just high enough for all to see, answered, "In the universe I come from, I was dubbed The Marvel. During the time of the Earth/Krypton war, I rose to the rank of captain in the Earth forces."
"Captain Marvel! I like it!" beamed the reporter. "Who's your kid sidekick?"
The young clone of Superman stepped forward, "I'm not her sidekick! But like her, I was created in a lab, but in this universe. My name is--"
"Captain Marvel, Jr.?" snickered a voice from behind.
The clone snapped his head around to see that he had been followed by the Newsboy Legion. Grinning mischievously at him, he could tell that they intended to be pains. "I suppose you could call me 'Captain Marvel, Jr.,' but I was going to go with 'Powerboy,'" he declared. "But if I was a Marvel, these would be my Lieutentants Marvel- Big Words, Fat, Tall, and Hill Billy Marvel!"
"Hey! Youse--" protested Fat, only to be stifled by his compatriots.
"Now is not the time for altercations," said Big Words.
"It's certainly not," they heard from behind.
Looking behind them, one of the boys shouted, "Guardian!"
"Oh good," said Powerboy. "Uncle Marvel."
