Young Justice 2.0 – A World Without Justice 1.36

velocity-avVelocity took a step away from her friends toward the bubble of darkness. “Requiem?” She’d made the name mistake enough times for one day. Right now she couldn’t risk doing anything that would cause more hard feelings. “Can you hear me? It’s okay now. The guys in masks are taken care of. It’s really okay.” Her voice didn’t seem to travel past the end of her fingertips. Certainly there was no change in the inky blackness that hid Robert from their sight.

“Do… do you think he can even hear you in there, Vel?” the Green Teen said with a frown. He looked over the black sphere, looking for any fissures. “Maybe…” He took a step back and leveled his left arm. A gout of flame erupted from the ring, then focused to a narrow, cutting torch like point...

requiem-avRobert watched the two interact… the concern and affection of old friends, even at their age. It was a feeling he knew little if, though he understood it in principle. There was a connection there. He felt himself for the first time really wanting to experience that kind of camaraderie for himself. Unfortunately, the feeling that overtook him was of a different nature.

“Isn’t that sweet” a whispered voice said to the black-cloaked teen. Robert glanced to one side and saw a movement in the shadows and the glitter of gold, like light flickering from a shard of avarice. “A lovely story of boy meets girl meets boyfriend.” Another wave of emotion struck Robert, even without him reaching out for it. It surrounded him, centered on a tiny point to his right, but its power was overwhelming.

lantern-avTeen Lantern reached the end of his arcing ballistic trajectory. Touching down in front of the building he paused. Nobody had ever heard of a Teen Lantern, so he commanded his ring to alter his costume, and took on the appearance of a member of the Green Lantern Corps. Silently he passed through the stone and steel of the building’s wall and emerged in the lobby of the building. A security guard looked at him and started to laugh.

“Green Lantern!” He said between bursts of laughter. “They’re in the ba… heh… ba… Bwahahaha!”The guard doubled over, clutching his sides, slowly regaining his composure. “Basement.”

Nodding, Scott flew through the corridors to the elevator and pulled open the doors. He shot down the shaft like a rocket...

lantern-avScott had been flying around the Bronx and Manhattan stopping random crimes and scaring off looters where he could. He hadn’t heard from any of his friends for a while, so he decided to head back to the JSA headquarters.

On his way back to Morningside Heights and the JSA Brownstone, Scott swooped low over Harlem. He spotted a pair of what appeared to be gang members attacking an ATM with a crowbar. Sighing, Scott dove down and dropped a glowing green dome over the thieves.

“Guys, just because you don’t see a cop around doesn’t mean you can do stuff like this. He said as the dome constricted around the thieves.

One of the young men made a rude gesture in Teen Lantern’s direction. “Screw you, man. It’s more than cops not bein’ around. They ain’t anywhere...

requiem-avThe closer Robert grew to the Inner Sanctum, the more concerned he became. There was only one mind within, and it was filled with confusion and worry. Nonetheless, there was no malice in its emotional state, so he wasn’t afraid… just really ready for those answers. Pulling his hood fully over his head, he took a deep breath, slowly opened the door, and stepped inside. He was immediately surrounded by faces, but not people… pictures of everyone who had ever been a member of the Justice Society of America.

It was downright eerie. The room was huge, as he remembered, with a massive conference table capable of supporting the largest team of mystery men the world had ever known...

Young Justice 2.0 – A World Without Justice 1.14

requiem-avRobert sat in the kitchen with his back against the wall. The door to the living room was just to his right, and his naturally-enhanced senses seemed to have little trouble hearing into the other room. It was made even easier by the volume of the two women on the other side… two women, he would have liked to point out, who were arguing over his future.

“He needs this, Cassie. And he isn’t a child anymore.” That was Robert’s mother, defending his right to choose his own destiny. He found this kind of ironic, since he’d heard it was normally the parentthat was over-concerned with the child’s choices, and not the aunt. “Besides, I want him to know that I trust him to make the right decisions.”

“You know the destiny she foresaw, Donna.” That was Aunt Cassie, a.k.a. Wonder Woman...
