Training Game

It was a training mission. Batman had been asked to run a little "war game" to test an old friend's new team. Be careful what you ask for, Arthur, Batman thought. With Manhunter in tow, He signaled in the dark to Dr. Mid-Nite and they moved out to cover positions on the left and right banks of the river, while Black Canary covered their rear. Let's see how this Detroit "Justice League" fights in the field.

The superpowered grandstanders came crashing into center field. Typical, Batman thought. What else would you expect from a stage magician and a breakdancer? Arthur and his supermodel friend were surely being more prudent, sneaking towards us while submerged in the river. Yes, that's why J'onn is making such a show of himself instead of stealthing: he's providing a distraction to improve the chances of their attacks succeeding.

Spencer, what are--? Should've stayed behind me, as I instructed. The grandstanders, impatient for battle, tagged her right away from a distance, and now she's reeling. Having tasted blood, they'll be focused on her, giving me the chance to take them out. Unless ... ah, of course; here comes J'onn to "attack" me. Right on schedule.

I know how to take care of him, but Mid-Nite's in trouble; Aquaman and Vixen are dogpiling him. Smart; they don't want him healing any of our team. Well, it's up to Canary, Batman thought; I have to deal with the Martian, the magician, and the machisto.

A few bic lighters later, J'onn was out of commission and Vibe had followed suit. Mid-Nite and Canary were down, and when Aquaman and Vixen turned their attention to Batman, it was too late. Arthur first, of course, Batman reasoned, before he can get back to the river. Vixen ran to regenerate her powers ... but not fast enough.


I like Heroclix; even when I lose. Even when I lose to Devon (!) and one of his Batman teams.

But next time, the gloves come off. I'm adding the Elongated Man figure, the Sue Dibny pog, AND ....

Dale Gunn.

Batman doesn't stand a chance.

My Little Pony fanfic?

Is there much toy fanfiction?

I suppose you can fanfic anything. I'm not wanting to know anything about Barbie slash, though.

Allan said...

Wouldn't Barbie slash just consist of tales of a bottle blond with big fake boobs exploring the innermost areas of her brunette doppleganger? In other words, 90% of what you'll find at your local adult video store boutique.

Transformers slash on the other hand....

Although I suspect the Japanese have attempted it at some point or another.

Insert your own "More than meets the eye" joke here.

You suspect that there's such a thing as Transformers slash? There's straight up Transformers porn floating around; I guarantee you somebody's banged out a fevered tail of that time Ironhide and Mirage gave into their indescribable hidden passions and made sweet sweet robot love atop Omega Supreme.

Jon said...

Tale, even. Homophones are the bane of my existence.

One thing I've learned is that you can find porn of ANYTHING on the internet. Nine times out of ten, it's probably Japanese.

Derek said...

Wow. This was such a short trip from Scipio playing Heroclix to Japanese robot porn.

I'm so proud of all of you. *sniff*

So I just have to ask (because this Heroclix thing kind of summarizes it) is Modern Age Batman as overpowered as Golden Age Superman (in comics not necessariy in Clix), I mean he can't move the planet, but if he has say 5 minutes warning whats to stop him from launching some cunning plan to make planet moving a waste of time.
