God, I haven't updated in forever.  Doing pretty good though, still with my group of Titans and we're hanging in their pretty good.  Fought the Ultra-Humanite, stopped the Injustice Society, had to rescue Lyta from some bunch of crazies calling themselves Helix...

And, of yeah, wound up on Earth-One for a team up with their Teen Titans.  That was fun, actually.

((as an ooc note, all the micro heroes came from here: http://jerome.galica.free.fr/dc%20comics/dccomics.htm And I make no claim at having made them myself. All I did was organize them into one picture. Also, there are some noticeable differences in this and the previously established Earth-Two facts, but considering this Earth is never, ever heading for a Crisis, I figure that's all right.))
Cut for length and a picture )

[locked to other super-heroes]
I was recently offered the dare/suggestion by an alternate Earth version of Dick "Robin" Grayson that I should try for a team-up with other young heroes and see what happened.  While that hasn't fallen into place just yet, I have been giving it a lot of thought.  I like being a part of the JSA, but there is a part of me that wonders if striking out on my own (or rather, on my own with others), wouldn't do the world some good.  Sure, the Justice Society does a great job protecting everybody here on good old Earth-Two... 

But over on Earth-One, there's more teams than you can shake a stick at.  The Justice League, the Teen Titans, the Outsiders, the new Doom Patrol, the Challengers of the Unknown, and probably a bunch that I'm missing.

Running into a lot of different versions of Dad lately...

There's one who stopped being Batman.   And didn't entirely seem to believe me about Mom.


Another who's dating Barbra Gordon.


And then there's the creepy one.

And on top of that, I've had several other odd encounters in alternate worlds here and there recently.

God, I miss him.

Ask me five questions, and I'll answer them.  ...With the ground rule that I'm not revealing my real identity even if you ask.  If you're already in the know, that's different.

Justice Society Headquarters, Gotham City
Earth-Two, 1978


Helena had had no problems in bringing Harley directly to the Justice Society's headquarters, located in the heart of Gotham City.  It's location was public knowledge, practically a landmark, a site pointed on tour groups that passed through.  Gotham itself might even be somewhat different than the one Harley was used to, lacking some of the background feeling of fear and paranoia that characterized other versions of the city.

She leads Harley to the portion of the building given over to medical facilities, already occupied by a man clad in blue and gold, his face hidden behind a gleaming golden helmet.  Also there was a man in black and red, combined with a dark green cape and dark goggles over his mask.

"Miss Quinn, Doctors Fate and Mid-Nite.  Doc Mid-Nite here is a real MD."

"I'm afraid I insisted on being present," he says, apologetically.  "Anything like this deserves proper medical supervision."

Gotham City, 1978 (Earth-Two)
JSA Headquarters

The JSA's headquarters was largely unoccupied tonight, most of the active members at home with their families.  Wildcat and the Star-Spangled Kid, the only active members who currently lived in the headquarters, were both out for the night.  Automated systems monitored news around the world and would trigger signal devices if the JSA was actually needed.

Helena, called the Huntress, stands waiting in the room where the transmatter cube was kept.  The largish transporter was chiefly designed to transport members to Earth-One and the Justice League's satilite headquarters, but it could be set to send people elsewhere, or in this case, recieve a traveler from elsewhere.

Do I really have the right to try and train another hero?  I've only been at this a couple of years now.  Sure, I had the best training a girl could ask for, and I'm working with some of the greatest heroes alive...  But I've also made some big mistakes.  Well, maybe I can use that kind of hindsight.  And God knows this girl needs someone to help her out.  Might as well be me.

Just a bit of info on Helena's universe for the non-comic readers (or those only really familiar with the more modern DCU)

Earth-Two

  • Super-heroes first appeared on Earth-Two in 1938/39, with Superman (who was never Superboy) and Batman being among the very first.  Many more followed, including Hawkman (Carter Hall), the Flash (Jay Garrick), Green Lantern (Alan Scott), and many more.
  • Most of these heroes (with the initial roster being Superman, Batman, Hawkman, Doctor Fate, the Spectre, Green Lantern, the Flash, the Atom, Hourman, and the Sandman) banded together to form the Justice Society of America, after preventing an attempt on the life of FDR by valkryie warriors summoned by Hitler using the Spear of Destiny.  The influence of this magical item is also what kept the likes of Superman or the Spectre from simply flying off to Germany to end World War II early.
  • Other heroic teams of that era include the Seven Soliders of Victory (Crimson Avenger, the Vigilante, the Star-Spangled Kid, Stripesy, the Shining Knight, Green Arrow, and Speedy) and the All-Star Squadron, which was a group which actually incorporated all mystery men of the day, but was built around a core of Liberty Belle, Johnny Quick, Robotman, Commander Steel, Firebrand, and later the Tarantula and Amazing Man.
  • The JSA eventually was forced into retirement by the House Un-American Activities Committee, refusing to unmask under the suspicion of Communist ties.  They remained in retirement for a little more than ten years.  During this time period, Clark Kent marries Lois Lane, while Bruce Wayne marries Selena Kyle.
  • Eventually, Barry Allen, the Flash of another Earth, accidentally penetrates the vibratory barrier separating his Earth and that of the JSA.  He teams with Jay Garrick several times, before the JSA makes a comeback to team up with the Justice League of America.  The JSA's world, having been discovered by someone from the JLA's world, is named Earth-Two, while the League's Earth becomes Earth-1.
  • In the late seventies, the JSA welcomes some new blood, including the Star-Spangled Kid (pulled from a timewarp), Power Girl (Superman's cousin and Earth-Two counterpart to Supergirl), and the Huntress.
Notable facts:

A number of Earth-Two heroes are retired or semi-retired, returning to action when only when the situation requries it.
A great number of the heroes of Earth-Two, including Superman, Wonder Woman, and the late Batman, are married.
A number of the heroes, including Wonder Woman, have children.
Earth-Two has a few noticable differences besides the presence of an older generation of super-heroes.  Most notable, South Africa abandoned apartheid sometime in the seventies, and Quebec is an independent nation.
Dick Grayson never abandoned his Robin identity (though he did update his costume)
Most of the heroes are now in their mid to late fifties, but due to their extraordinary abilities and exposure to various forms of magic over the years, have considerable vitality still.
In pure narrative terms, there's a much greater bond of trust between heroes.  Everyone knows everyone elese's origin and secret identity.

And of course, the heroes, in fact the whole Earth, is just a bit more squeaky clean.  Most notable, of course, when applied to Batman.  This is the Batman of the fifties, with all manner of adventures against aliens and wacky costumes, the Batman who drove the Batmobile through downtown Gotham in broad daylight, smiling.

Gotham itself, is and always was, also home to Green Lantern as a local hero, and the JSA has its headquarters there.

Of Gotham and Batman, to quote from the Earth-Two Superman...

"Our Gotham wasn't covered in grime and dirt.  Things were rough, but during the days, the sun still managed to shine.  As the commishoner, the Bruce Wayne I knew learned to live past the death of his paretns.  He opened his heart and married."
