Certainly, post as often as you like there.  Just not two in a row.

The hallway of Detention Block J was fairly unnerving.  It stretched forward for quite some distance before it faded into darkness.  The walls were a dark rust color and made from some of the strongest materials known to man.  Hanging above his head were large racks of electrified barbed wire that were supposed to drop on escaping prisoners in case of a riot.  The Knight tried not to think about what that stuff would do to him if it fell now.  All of the cell doors on the block appeared securely shut, which was one of the few bright spots of the situation.  The worst part was how quiet it was.  Up top the chaos created by the escapees was deafening, but down here there was no sound at all.  It felt almost like a crypt.

As the Arach-Knight took a few more steps forward, his danger sense kicked into high gear.  A cell door to his left swung wildly open and the Knight only just jumped in time to avoid a blast of electric energy from the prisoner within.  As he landed he dropped into a roll to avoid a second, weaker blast, and that somersault took him directly into the cell 23A.  The incarcerated hack interred within 23A was a gaunt, older man who had long since lost most of his grey hair.  His skin was stretched tight against his skull, giving him an almost skeletal appearance.  The spider had never seen this guy, and had no clue what he was capable of.

“I took those little blasts from the grid out in the hallway.  Not much there, but don’t worry dear,” he said in a croaking voice that seemed unused to working.  “I’ll just be drawing some more energy from you.  Won’t that be a sight?  Me using your power against you!”  And with a grand, practiced gesture, the villain held out his hands and wiggled his fingers.  The Arach-Knight dropped like a sack of dirt to the cell floor and started writhing in pain.  This seemed to encourage and delight the villain who redoubled his finger waggling.  As his body convulsed, Andrew crawled weakly towards the villain holding a hand out for mercy.  Then the prisoner made one last, overly dramatic flourish with his hands and the Knight couldn’t take it anymore and started laughing.  All of the delight present in the villain’s face drained away.

“Why are you laughing?”

“You look like an idiot, waving your arms around like that,” the spider responded.  “I just couldn’t keep up the act.  It was too priceless.”  Getting up onto his knees, he mimicked the villain’s movements and started roaring with laughter.

“You should be powerless!  No one can stand against me,” the villain whined.

“You’re an energy siphon, aren’t you?” the Arach-Knight asked as he caught his breath.

“Yes, and you should have fed my power reserves, Cell Phone…Girl.”  As he said the word Girl, he paused and looked down at the Knight.  “You’re not her.”

“Nope,” the spider responded as he took his adversary down with a wicked uppercut that sent the man flying back onto his cot.  It was short work from there to web the moron to his bed and as he finished up, a faint green light started to spill into the cell from the hallway.  The Arach-Knight turned towards the light, as it grew brighter.  Clenching his fists, he prepared himself for another fight, but then quickly dropped them again as a billowing green cloak floated into the room.  Cocking his head, the Knight took in the new arrival.

“Emerald Lantern?” he asked.  “When did you join the party?  Not that it matters, I’m just happy I’m not down here alone.”  Andrew started to walk out of the cell, past the Lantern.  “Nice cloak by the way, I don’t suppose you have a map in there.”  The green eyes followed him as he walked out into the hall.  “Listen, this appears to be some elaborate sort of trap.  That guy in there was meant for Cell Phone Girl.  I’m guessing there’s one for each of us somewhere.  You want to go spring them?” he asked with a grin that the Lantern couldn’t see.

No problem, bud.  Feel free to use it as a way to set out your character's back story.  I won't be able to post again until Monday I think, so take your time.

 Andrew sat at the oversized control panel, an aging Algebra book open before him.  There was very little he could say about the subject that didn’t involve a foul curse word or two, but it was a required course.  Problem twelve on this particular page wanted him to find the value of X in an overly complicated equation that seemed to be written in Latin.  He slammed a fist down onto the Durasteel plating out of pure frustration.

“Give me a super villain with plans towards world domination and that’s a problem I can solve, but this, this is just torture for the sake or torture.”  He leaned back in the chair and ran his hands through his short brown hair.  “The only way to solve this sort of problem would be with a super computer,” he remarked.  Then after a painfully long moment he realized that he was indeed sitting in front of a super computer.  A wicked little grin spread across his lips as he pondered the moral consequences of the act.  In the end, he decided it wouldn’t be a lot different than using a calculator.  It was just a really big one, and smarter.

As he was about to key in the problem, the door to the training room opened, admitting a blond haired girl that the computer system identified as Moonglow.  It always amused the Knight to see that the image the security system had for Arella showed her with dark violet hair.  He couldn’t imagine where that image would have come from, as he had always known her to have blond.

As Moonglow made her way towards the control room, Andrew reached for his mask and pulled it back over his head.  The only person on the team that had actually seen him without it was Eclipse.  It wasn’t a matter of distrust for his fellow teammates; it was just that people who knew his identity tended to end up dead.  So, in the long run it was easier for him to be aloof than to attend a funeral.

Moonglow entered the control room; a smooth smile on her lips and said, “Hello AK, need any help?”  Her tone was passionate and it made his throat go dry, but not wanting to come off as a total nerd, he did his best to shake off the nerves and just lean casually onto the console.  As he did he hit a button that started the whole display blinking.  Andrew quickly turned towards it and slapped another button to shut it off.

“It does that, from time to time,” he said.  “So…I don’t really need any help.  Unless you know Algebra.  Otherwise, well you’re welcome to hang out here.  This thing gets channels from all over the world and I think Cell Phone Girl filled it with music.  You know…if you like music.”

“Oh yeah,” he then said happily as he turned around and shot a web line at the fridge.  “I made Eclipse put a fridge in here.  Totally stocked.”  With another line he grabbed a couple of drinks and yanked them towards himself.  He caught them easily and held one out towards Moonglow.  “Thirsty?”

LOL, yeah, well I'm sure at some point they'll come back in.  Probably when we regroup and go on the offensive.
