Teen Titans (2020) is an 2020 Live-action adventure, drama, comedic and suspenseful comic book film and is the first live-action iteration of the beloved superhero team based on both the comics and original T.V anime series to be included in the DC Extended Universe as well as the second of the two sequels to Justice League: Part II. With the steady slow decline of "Teen Titans Go!" on Cartoon Network compared to the DCEU's lasting effect on the box office, the Teen Titans had yet to be brought to the silver screen, let alone a live action adaption. Luckily, with the release of both Justice League films, the possibility of a eventual Teen Titans film became more and more likely until the post-credit scene for Justice League 2 was leaked, causing Zack Snyder to confirm the speculations. With that being said, the film had begun principal photography around the time “Justice League: Part II” had hit theaters......
.....which meant that while an late 2019 release was risky, an early 2020 release was all but inevitable.
The film is written and directed by Jon Favreau, produced by Zack Snyder and distributed by both Warner Bros., and D.C Entertainment.
Cast members will include Zac Efron, Cailee Spaeny, Ray Fisher, Jessica Alba, Cole Sprouse, Steven R. McQueen, etc.
- Zac Efron as Richard “Dick” Grayson (Nightwing)
- Cailee Spaeny as Rachel Roth (RAVEN)
- Ray Fisher as Victor “Vic” Stone (Cyborg)

More coming soon.....
.....In the midst of a cosmic realm....
.....somewhat similar to what ours is like but in a different scenery.....
.....there lies this world called Azerath, one of the few planets that lie amongst the closest dimension. Over 900 years ago, the followers of the first Azar were led to a place between all dimensions where they founded the Temple Azarath. It was Azar's plan to expel all evil from the Azarathians so that the demons couldn't use the dark energy to be fully re-established, and then Azar could finally kill it once and for all.
Those plans hit a snag once a beautiful Empress came along seeking help by the people of Azerath and she was known by her people as Arella (Emilia Clarke), formally known as Angela Roth.
But after an extended time of darkness, Arella gave birth to and became the pacifist mother a beautiful baby daughter daughter and in time, she called her.......Raven.....
.....only her former name would be Rachel Roth.
Despite of the unknown origin to the Empress's child, their lives together were peaceful even with their people.....at least, the people....
.....that didn't fear little Raven.
For someone who was one of theirs, she didn’t seem to be one for getting a lot of craved attention.
There was, however, a reason for this......one of which only Arella could possibly understand.
Despite Arella's efforts, her daughter was bound to a great evil foretold by a prophecy which would entitle the subjugation and destruction of all life. Arella forever gave Raven her love, even knowing what she was destined to become: a vessel for the cause of all destruction. The end result was set to be inevitable, for even she could not escape the cruel fate that had been destined upon her since the end of her childhood.
One day on Azerath, the inevitable day finally came along and that was the day that all hell would break loose.
A solar eclipse had blocked out their sun as the radiant beams of heat that came through to their planet sent everyone into a panic.
Arella unfortunately was the last one to look out from her balcony and see the horror that was soon to be unleashed before them. Just like everyone else, she was horrified and petrified for what this meant, not because it was a regular eclipse or anything like that.......
.....it was because she knew the REAL threat on hand here. She knew what and who was coming.
With time running against them, Arella rushed back behind her before zipping through endless hallways. Eventually, she came at a complete stop, gracing upon the presence of Athena through a statue.
Regardless of what her belief in the Greek gods were, if there was any time to call them out for aid or assistance, now might’ve been a few seconds too late.
But that didn’t stop her.
Arella: Athena.....goddess of wisdom......Have our warriors prep for any attack.
Knowing how close their eventual fate had become, they had to make last minute preparations just to be sure their last stand would be their noblest one of all time.
Arella: Azar. Seal off any entrance to the palace.
Azar: But, Arella........Raven's whereabouts.....
Azar: She's been more questionable during her lessons. She---she went to the temple of Zinthos to meditate—
Arella: No......HE'LL find her there.
Cutting to the temple of Zinthos, young Raven, age 12, was in meditation chanting.....
Raven: Azerath. Netrian. Zinthos. Azerath. Netrian. Zin---
She coughed and looked up seeing a wall light a fire tracing a simple....and Raven grabbed her throat as she saw a pear of four...
Yes....the moment has come. You are the key to the earth. You will open the portal. And bring about the end of the world. If your mother hadn't in hadn't interfered 10 years ago....you would have been mine long ago....and now....you will be...as will the earth. And the WHOLE universe!
Arella and some warriors of Azerath stormed in and saw what was happening
Arella: *Rushes* GET AWAY FROM HER YOU BEAST!!
She grabbed her just as a demonic hand reached out for her
Give her to ME!!!
They all rushed out as the temple burnt down but the skies above Azerath began to turn red like fire and blood and fiery demons rose from the grounds people fled in terror
And soon the eclipse blasts down a dark force which was almost too much for Azerath it would soon fall apart and burn down
Arella carrying her Raven saw the horror that was happening
Raven: Mother? What's happening?
Arella: The we all fear that might come. And it's here. Azerath will soon be soon be destroyed and....your father....will get what he came for unless....
It was silent for a moment then Arella walked down to the thrown room
Arella: My people. As many of you can see....Azerath is dying....the demon lord Trigon will soon crumble us all in his grip. And the same will happen to every planet in the universe. Starting....with the one called earth. And so....to insure hope and survival of our race.....my daughter will carry that hope with her on her journey to earth itself
Man: My lady that's suicide. The portal rests deep within the bowls of that world.
Arella: My daughter will keep the portal closed at any means nessercary. Without her....Trigon has no chance of entering earth's galaxy.
Woman: It's possible the demon could reach her in dreams and images. You said it yourself milday.
Arella: Not if she meditates.
Knowing how critical this moment would become, Arella turns her attention to Raven. This was perhaps the last time that she was going to embrace her daughter, to see her again, to express how much she loves her. She wish she could stay with her.....
......but the fate she was destined to suffer couldn’t be outrun.
Arella: My sweet Raven, listen to me: our hopes and dreams will rest within you. You must return to your home-world......and keep the bond between HIM and you sealed tight. Please.
Raven: Mother......I can't leave you......
She kneels down to her.
Arella: You must......it's important your fat--Trigon never gets his hands on you. You are his only way of reaching the earth.
Raven: Then come with me.
Arella: I wish I can. But this is only resorted for you.
Raven cried and hugged her mother.
Arella: I shall miss you too, my little Raven.
Raven: It’s not fair.
Arella: It never is.
In some time a circle was formed and Raven sat in the center with Arella and subjects in hand to hand chanting
Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos.
Whatever they were doing they had better do it fast cause as we speak....
.....the doors were being burned down.
They chanted on and on and on and so on and just then....an energy force was casted on the center of the circle and Raven....
Arella: Goodbye, my Raven. Our only hope is in you.
And just then the doors were blasted off as Arella looked over and a demon figure with the same four glowing red eyes and a shadow covering his face
The blast force from the eclipse launched a shock wave with fiery force and....
.....BLOWS all of Azerath away.....
......and just then......
....Raven found herself in......CRIME Ally......
......of Gotham City.
~Title opening: Teen Titans~
5 years later....
.....It was 7:43PM Eastern time
Located deep within the heart of the sister city of Gotham City Bludhaven is what appears to be a fairly suitable and beautiful looking viewpoint of a city that more or less resembled that Chicago, Illinois. The unfortunate thing is....
....just like Chicago the seemingly peaceful and calm tranquility that came over the city isn't to be mistaken The official residing place of the vigilante Nightwing was far from a....reasonable place to stay
Speaking of Nightwing.....
....over on the roof of his said apartment there is the famous or infamous Richard "Dick" Grayson (Zac Efron) sitting right then and there near the edge strapping up his boots...
....ready for his traditional night out on the town.
At least, this is HIS way of spending his night out in town
A wise man once told me that Ever since I was a child I was seen with such luminosity of spirit....that it was truly visible---
He straps up the other boot.
Some indefinable and yet unmistakable fire at the very core of my being that allowed me to survive and thrive where so many others.......had failed.
After a pause, he finishes strapping up his other boot and sighs heavily before standing up.......
After for the longest time.......people seemed to believe that the very spark that always defined me seems to have vanished.......and that I have once again become.......somewhat paralyzed by the idea of falling......let alone FAILING.
Staring out to the moonlight rising over the bleak horizon of the night sky, he smiles at the sight.....
Hehehe......whenever someone's asked what power they wish they had flying is always at the top of the list. But I have to admit I've learned to love falling.....
.....before slapping the mask over his face.
.......because you never know if you can fly unless you take the risk of falling.
Taking one methodical step at a time while approaching the edge, he finally takes a foot off the edge of his roof.....
.....and then falls off completely, going into free fall.
After diving through the air for only a minute, he spins a full 360 through the air and sticks his escrima sticks into the wall of the building behind him to slow down his fall.....
.....until he got into another comfortable position where he leaped off and once again proceeds into free fall.
Right below him, his own signature Batcycle (if you will) was already off riding on the highway with its own portable remote control system. Pretty soon, though.....
.....Nightwing landed firmly back down on his motorcycle, immediately revving the engines and taking back control of his bike as he drifted off the nearest avenue he came across.
Keeping his eyes laser focused on the road, he simply tapped on his arm, bringing up a virtual screen of......
Nightwing: Victor. What’s the story upstairs?
You shouldn’t be too far from it now.
Nightwing: How positive are you?
Hey, my trackers are satellite based. Most of the time, I’m never wrong.
Nightwing: I’ll see when I get there, man. Sooner we get Slade, the better.
Just as he cuts the transmission off, still raging through the streets of Bludhaven, he kept his eyes locked on the road until a certain rumbling from up above caught his attention. Finally taking his eyes off the road, he looks up towards the might sky as the faint sound of rumbling continues until an object, which appears to look like a meteor......of sorts......
......bursts through the atmosphere and starts hurdling down to solid ground.
It suddenly breezes past Nightwing on the road, not to mention countless other cars, as Dick suddenly flips a wheelie on his bike and lands the back wheel on the sidewalk to stop himself. Amidst the endless blurb of car horns sounding off, his eyes stayed glued on the burning “meteor” as it slowly hurdled its way down.....
......out the outskirts of the city......
......and landing on the terrain of Mt. Blüdhaven.
This was unusual.
But weird enough, Dick knew he’d have to investigate sooner rather than later.
Nightwing: Oh well......duty calls.
Soon as he released the clutch on his bike, he revs in the engine, spins his bike around in the OPPOSITE direction to avoid the pissed-off drivers and rode off to check out that impact on Mt. Blüdhaven. The only thing is......
.....the path from the city to Mt. Blüdhaven was a freaking half an hour ride.
But that mattered little to Dick Grayson.
After spending not so much of a penny as a dollar trying to get to the mountain, he FINALLY arrives at the area of the impact where the “meteor” crashed. Stepping off his motorbike with care, he didn’t want to take any chances.
He quickly whipped out his electric escrima sticks for protection and stepping over the edge of the crater, he came across.....
.....a moderate sized space pod......
......covered in dust.
So it in fact WASN’T a meteor. But either way, this did cause a pause for concern.
Nightwing: Hey Vic? You still there?
Nightwing: You're not gonna believe this....but either the next Superman just landed....or we got a meteor hit on Mt Bludhaven
Give me a visual
Nightwing pressed the center on his mask uploading a visual screen detecting heat signatures
At the "T" tower Cyborg himself on their OWN batcomputer the visual screen was uploaded to it and Cyborg could see everything Nightwing see's
Cyborg: Yo that's one big ass hole.
Nightiwing: Bruce said Clark made a larger hole
He slid down the crater as the dust cleared and Dick was finally able to get a clear visual of the space pod....
Nightwing: Whoa....tell me you're seeing this.
Every part of it. What is it?
Nightwing: I don't know....let's see if I can get it open. Somehow.
If you asked me, I'd analyze the pattern.
Turning his analyzing data on it calculated three point mere seconds of heat impact that it must have picked up from the atmosphere
Then soon calculated an opening
He pressed on it which the air sound startled Dick
Nightwing: Aah! *Falls back*
Hahaha! Don't tell me that scared you.
Nightwing: Shut up.
Soon as the pod opens steam blew out at cleared it revealed....
....a young red head light orange skinned woman (Jessica Elba) about Dick's age who was "Naked", but unconscious and ball wrapped with her arms around her legs.
And from the looks of it......she was tall.
Nightwing: My god....it's a girl.
And I guess she forgot her jammies
Nightwing: For real, Vic? Argh. Look, I'm bringing her to the tower. But I need something to cover her up.
Umm, Nightwing.....that would have to wait.
Almost immediately as soon as he said that, the orange tinted woman’s body twitched once, startling Dick.
Nightwing: She just moved.
Once again, the body moved yet again this time jerking around more violently than before giving Dick the indication that he should get the hell out of there.
But he didn’t.
I think she heard you.
Nightwing: Yeah, no s__t.
Shouldn’t you move out the way, man?!
He ignored Victors plea as the body continued to jerk around in a rather uncomfortable and contorted fashion forcing Dick to look away momentarily.....
......until it just stops.
Nightwing: Still here. It stopped. She’s still looks deader than a doornail, though.
Another second or two passes, and the body of this female quickly and forcefully bursts up off the ground, coming face to face with Nightwing.....forcing him to trip over himself back in the dirt in both astonishment and surprise.
Nightwing: Ok.....she’s up again.
Her eyes were glowing a bright fluorescent green color with this blank angry stare on her face as she reaches her arms out towards him and telepathically grabs Dick by the throat.
He tries his damnest to break the hold she has on him but it became clear very quickly that this was no HUMAN he was dealing with.
Unfortunately, he didn’t have much time to process it either as he quickly gets chucked out of the crater as he groans loudly.....
.....just as he sees this bright glimmer of green light fade into the distance.
She was heading into the city.
Nightwing: Oh s__t. Uhh, Victor?!
Don't tell me.....she's heading for the city......
Nightwing: She may not be a Superman but she's just as strong as him.
Then let's hope they have Kryptonite from where she's from?
Nightwing: That might not be necessary.
Point taken. I'm on my way.
Nightwing rushed to his bike and proceed after the powered woman
Meanwhile on the roof of Titans tower a hooded figure (Raven Age 17) was in deep meditation as instructed from 5 years ago
Raven: Azerath. Netrian. Zinthos. Azerath. Netrian. Zinthos. Az--
She then coughed again and woke up.....
A sight of horrific destruction on the earth
(Don't worry she's just having a vision she did in the comics)
Skies were burning waters became lava and every city....
A demonic face roaring flashed in Raven's sight she screamed but.....
.....she woke up again just to see everything was still normal
Everything in one peace but Raven wasn't fully relieved
That vision to her meant that whatever destroyed Azerath five years ago.....
....was staring to try and reach out for her
She turned away and went through a CLOSED door (Trust me she CAN do that)
Cutting to the heart of the city cars passed by as people walked on but....
....the strange alien red head nude woman appeared from a side view
And the firs to notice her was....
.....of course a group of punks
Punk # 1: Hey....looks like Christmas came early this year!
Punk # 2: Well shoot my brains out. I think I'm in love.
Punk # 3: Get in line I saw her first.
The trio thugs approached her and she grew more angry with her eyes glowing pure green
(You guys better turn back and I don't mean for her sake I mean yours)
Punk # 2: Hey Babe. Come to grant my birthday wish?
Punk # 3: How about a little road action?
Red head woman: Guta!
Punk # 1: I'll take that as a YES!
They JUST were about to grab but strange girl yelled out
And the screen cuts to the ground only showing shadows of everyone and green lights casting on the ground she BEAT them all up and the guys screamed in agony
Let's just say they got a hell of a LOT more than momma spanking
The screen shows them down on the ground with bruises broken ribs and one of them.....
....a leg twist
(I warned you guys)
Just then Nightwing road back into the city just to see Cyborg fly with his jet pack and he just landed as Nightwing stopped his moterbike
Cyborg: Any sign of our new hot friend?
Nightwing: She was here. Look.
Victor looked down to where he was pointing to see burning bare foot prints glowing green
Cyborg: And I thought my dad had a hot foot.
Nightwing: *Scoffs* You haven't seen the REAL hotfoot ‘till you've seen Jason Todd.
Cyborg: Jason Todd?
Nightwing: Now's not the time. Maybe later though.
Suddenly, there was commotion: Typical civilian chatter erupting from behind both of them which the two quickly became invested in. This entire crowd of civilians came gathering around in this crowded circle in order to see something.....
......and.....that pretty much gave away what the two were looking for.
Cyborg: That ain’t good.
Nightwing: No kidding.
Cyborg: No, seriously. Her bio readings are spiking and whatever anger management she’s having is only making it worse.
Nightwing: Then why we standing here?
Funny they say that......as that crowd of civilians quickly disperse away from that one little area.....
......and there she was, that same redhead girl waltzing around swinging her arms frantically like she had nowhere to go, yelling an indescribable language out loud, startling the crowd of civilians back.
But really, in reality, her arms were bound together.....
.....and she was trying to get them off.
So believe it or not, the only way she could muster to get them off is by hitting something......and boy, did she hit hard.
She literally chucks her arms towards a departing taxi cab as it spins frantically onto the road, causing other cars to crash in a combustible burning pile metal.
That wasn’t the half of it.
This hitting process continued further once she located the nearest building next to her.....
.....which just so happened to a random pizza parlor.
Leaping towards the building, she, AGAIN, waltz her arms towards the support beam holding the roof in place, startling the civilians who were already up there.
She attacks the support beam again, lashing out an unknown language out loud.
She does it again......
.....until that support beam literally goes wobbling in its end, barely holding the building on its head.
Exhausted, the girl stopped......for about 30 seconds. Just as she lifts her hands up, prepared to strike at the building and potentially bring it down.....
.....a blast resonates from behind her and it hits her in the back of head, launching her face first into the concrete.
Cyborg was the one who shot her, curtesy of his Sonic arm cannon.
Nightwing: Nice shot.
But almost immediately sensing where the shot came from, the redhead again bolts herself off the ground and immediately snaps her head back at Dick and Victor.
After briefly pulling a smirk on her face, she cracks her neck on both sides.....and then growls.
Cyborg: I think we just made it worse.
She leaps over at Cyborg, but luckily, he rips off his gray hoodie and folds up his shield on his right arm which prevents her from getting through to him.....
But at the same time, he kept his eyes on that pizza parlor, for that support beam holding the entire roof was seconds from falling.
As he shrugs her off to the side, he quickly flies towards the wobbling support beam of the pizza parlor and BARELY caught it in his head with his bionic grips. After a few attempts of twiddling, Cyborg was finally able to steady the support beam long enough for the ones on top to readjust themselves.
Man: Wha—what’s happening?
Cyborg: Don’t mind me, just GO!
No point in arguing as they did exactly what he said, piling off the roof one at a time.
That WOULD leave Nightwing to face off this woman.
Nightwing: Look.....we mean you no harm.....we just want to help. And.....
Her leg approached by the camera pointing at Nigthwing
Nightwing: You, uh.....hehe.....GOTTA ...... got to be cold without.....I mean I---
His constant blushing over the alien woman’s stunning beauty did little to help the situation considering how she didn’t know where she was or even who any of these people really are. And if anything, she felt like this random little wannabe was wasting his time with her.
And of course, he caught onto it really fast.
Nightwing: You don’t understand anything I’m saying, do ya?
His curiosity and his daringness to go easy left him wide open for the alien girl to fire that familiar green projectile blast as it knocks Nightiwing back across the street as he flips over himself and hits a car. Carving himself halfway through the actual car caused the car alarm to go off.
Dick was going to have defend himself in some way.
Nightwing: Uhh.....and I thought Bruce punched harder.
Or maybe not.
He heard a yell as the alien woman blasted at him
Dick had no choice but to defend himself he took his electric sticks and countered every green star bolt she blasted
Alien Woman: Guta Vata!
Nightwing: What?! Ooh!
One star bolt hit him forcing him in a window of jewelry store startling an old man
Nightwing: Go! Run!
The man ran out the back as the Alien Woman turned and was about to leave....
.....She growled and turned
Nightwing: Time for your medicine
He threw one of his shock sticks only for her to blast it to dust and growled in anger at him
Nightwing: Uhh....heheheh....I was just hoping you catch it....
She blasted him again and Nightwing ran to dodge the bolts and soon....
.....he reached her position and knocked her aside with his other shock stick
And surprisingly knocked her aside
He looked down at her thinking he may knocked her out
Nightwing: Better get you something decent
He had just had enough time to run to that same pizza parlor and "Burrowed" (Lol) a table sheet to cover her body up but by the time he got back.....
.....she was gone....
Nightwing: And of course....She's gone
....Or was she....
.....Dick looked back just to see she was pointing her biding green glowing hands at him
Nightwing: Wait! Please! *Drops the sheet*
Alien Woman: Guta!
Nightwing: No look! *Shows her a lock pick* Let me help with that binding.
She didn't trust him....
....but powered down just for Nightwing to unhook those bindings they fell by their feet as the woman rubbed her wrists
Nightwing: There. Now we can---MM!
The alien woman suddenly grabbed his head and KISSED him?!
....she pushed him down
Alien Woman: IF YOU WISH NOT TO BE DESTROYED YOU WILL LEAVE ME ALONE!
And she flew off
(WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?!?!?!?!)
Dick was just absolutely dumbstruck This entire situation felt mind numbing and confusing at best not only because it happened right hell out of nowhere but.....
.....what was up with that kiss
I mean I get it that he technically hot her out of that crater 30 something minutes ago but....come on. What was up with her?
So many unanswered questions.....
Still blinded by what he just happened he didn't even try to readdress it when Victor helped him up
Nightwing: Nice job on that pizza parlor. We're lucky to not have any fatalities
Cyborg: Not as smooth as we could've done but....practice makes perfect. I must admit whoever the hell she is she does know how to make an impression. She's a really fire starter is she?
Again Dick scoffs it's apparent that this day was one he probably wasn't gonna forget for awhile
Thing is....they weren't really the only ones who were frustrated over a particular situation
That was more or less Raven's condition back at the tower as she spotted passing through yet another door before pushing herself back against the wall in the bathroom breathing heavily and sweating profusely
She just slid herself down to the floor burying her face in her hands trying desperately to block out whatever vision had fallen before minutes ago.
But whatever had haunted her.....
.....it kept coming back....
.....easy to read.....
.....but difficult to understand
At leas until she heard a very troubling deep demonic voice booming through her head
How have you ESCAPED ME?!
Raven: No....get out of my head!
Your mother was a fool to hide you from me! Now her failure will be complete....once you open the portal!
Raven: I'll never do it!
You have NO CHOISE!!
Soon as she snapped out of her second trance with her room a mess and sighed softly
Downstairs the two came in on their computer
Nightwing: We got to track down what happened to the girl.....before she hurts herself and others
Cyborg You seem to be in a rush to find that powered She almost turn the both of us into scrambled eggs.
Nightwing: I'm just....trying to make sure no one finds her before us. It could be dangerous if she falls into the wrong hands
Suddenly they heard a door open and income Raven with hood on
Seeing her prompts Dick to take his mask off.
Raven: The time has dawned upon us. I can feel it.....I can.....I can feel HIM. The longer I resist, the more he feeds off my energy. His limitations have NO bounds.
She once again pulls her face down and backs up a step or two before recovering, regaining a fair balance on her two feet.
Victor: Hey hey hey. You ok?
She doesn’t answer back.
Raven: We need to assemble the rest of the team quickly. The three of us won’t be enough to stop him and It won’t be long until HE arrives to finish what my mother had started. By then, I won’t be able to pull back against his grip any longer.
Dick: Got a little distracted, but still, we’re trying our damnest here.
Raven: Please, hurry. We have MONTHS to prepare......but by each passing second, your world dives into more peril.
Knowing the situation at hand, thanks to Ravens heads up two months ago, the two knew how serious this meant to Raven as well as the rest of the world.
Dick: Well, then......I think it’s safe to say we found another player that’d fit right in. We just got to track her down, that’s all.
Victor: You seriously ain’t talking about—
Dick: Desperate Times call for desperate measures, Vic. Raven, come take a look.
Taking a look on their computer, codenamed, BROTHER EYE, Dick digs back into the databanks and pulls back to the footage that Victor snapped when he was in the mountain, viewing the redhead girl out of the crater. Something about her appearance struck Raven as odd, for despite being technically an alien in her own right, she had never seen one such as her.....
.....or DID SHE?
Raven: An alien entity from a lost world.
Victor: Oh don’t worry. That parts obvious. It’s also clear that she isn’t around here, giving the state she was in when she crashed.
Dick: But then that raises the question......
Dick: A what??
Raven: She's a Tamaranean. They were believed to be extinct but that rumor was slightly exaggerated. They're very peaceful but fierce warriors.
Victor: Peaceful?! Hardly peaceful when she smacked us around in the city.....
Dick: Not to mention smash up my favorite pizza parlor!
Raven: Maybe that's cause she's.....unfamiliar with the world she's in.
Dick: She could have been captured. I mean her arms were bind together by unlike any hand cuffs I've ever seen.
Raven: Well that is possible. If I can get close enough to her I might reach her mind to calm her down before she can do any more damage.
Soon the alarms went off
Cyborg: Looks like she's struck again.
Dick: No. That alarm is a code red one. Meaning someone broke out of Blackgate.
They uploaded the alarm cause on the computer revealing an image of.....
Dick: Slade! Oh not again!
Raven: Who's he?
Cyborg: He's one of the goons from Gotham. They call him Deathstroke the Terminator once was an assassin for hire but later ended up as any criminal.
Dick: Bats did him in a long time ago. Guess it's my turn now.
Raven: What about the Tamaranean?
Victor: I think we got a third problem. My sensors on my reading computer (On his arm) are picking up weird activity coming from Gothcorp. And it's pretty heavy.
Dick: Then each of us will have to split up and take one each. Victor you check out what's happening at Gotchcorp. Raven, you find the—the Tasa-manian?
Raven: Its pronounced “Tamaranean”.
Dick: Whatever. Just find her and work your magic. I'll track down Deathstroke. And Raven? Uhh.....you'll have to find her some cloths.....she wasn't when we found her.
Raven: Oh, NOW you tell me. No wonder you two you got your asses kicked.
Dick: What's that supposed to mean?!
Dick later put his mask back on and each of the first three titans went on their assignments
Nightwing later was on a roof looking down at busy streets till.....
.....something or someone pounced on him
It was a figure in the same colors as Deathstroke
The figure took out a sword and pointed it at Dick
Nightwing: Ok....I been abused by a confusing hot alien girl and I'm not gonna take abuse from costume figures
He took his shocks deflecting the sword
They clashed and kung fued kick and punched one another
But the fight didn't las long when the figure knocked out his shock sticks and pinned him down
(Arkham city reference)
Figure: You only continue to live cause the great Deathstroke allows it
Other figures turned and got beat down by someone with a staff
It was none other than....Robin (Tim Drake) (Steven R. McQueen)
Figure: Call HIM off.
Nightwing planted a tracer on him without him noticing
Nightwing: Stand down.
Robin paused and lowered his staff and sealed the pole back up
Figure: Do not fallow us.
He leapt off and Nightwing stood up
Nightwing: I didn't need your help.
Robin: Really? That's not what it look like from where I was standing.
Nightwing: I had it under control. Why did Bruce sent you?
Robin: He was worried about you. He heard about Deathstroke and.....well he figured your titan team could use a fourth member.
Nightwing: You? You're still in training.
Robin: Hardly now. Ever since Bruce and I took down Penguin last week, he figured I was for the Titans. War on Mt. Olympus. Ha!
Nightwing: No time for jokes, Tim. We're in many situations than just Deathstroke. We got a.....Alien Woman on the loose and.....our friend Raven is.....let's just say it's pretty complicated.
Robin: All more reason I should be here.
Nightwing: Alright. But follow my lead. And stay close. With Batman, it's just criminals and supervillains. But with my team.....it’s a helluva lot more: Monsters.
Robin: Like I haven’t prepped for THAT this weekend.
Dick chuckles slightly.
Robin: Trust me, we’re needed here just as much as we’re needed in Gotham. Things are bound to get worse in the foreseeable future.
He then pulls out this trinket from the side of his gadget belt and then hands it to Nightwing.
It was the Line Launcher.
Nightwing: Heh. Thanks.
Robin: Yeah. Bruce wanted you to have it he said it beats riding on the roads all the time. Though he does with the batmobile. But this allows rapid movement whenever your between two horizontal lines. But it has to be precise.
Nightwing: Guess I can also redeploy it mid-air without having to touch the ground then. Best we get going then.
Talking a quick look around he shot the line launcher towards the tallest building he could see in front of him which also connected to the rooftop doorway behind him.
He quickly ziplines his way across towards the building in that direction until he's a barely visible in Robins eyes
Robin: *Chuckles* Can't believe you got to be the leader though man.
He then leaps off the building after him
Over at the Goth-Corp building....
.....there is an entire hoard of storage chambers, filled with countless inmates and civilians and even professionals turned test subjects. Similar to that of Alecamax (Spider-Man 2099 reference), this company appeared to have both the schematics and resources available to MAYBE help others in need. But they don’t put them to proper use.
Why couldn’t it be a benefit to people?
Well, apparently, that WAS what they were doing. It’s just they main people behind this company had no luck on finding any sign of an antidote.
Now why would they need one?
Just ask their newest “inmate” and test subject.....
......Garfield Mark Logan (Cole Sprouse)......
......better known by his test subject title: BEAST BOY.
(Yes, I’m using Cody from Zack and Cody here)
If you were to take a good look at the man, you’d see why.
Anyways, two scientists and the head of Goth-Corp, Julie Madison (Bryce Dallas Howard) enters the chamber of Mr. Beast Boy and the room was completely and utterly pitch BLACK.
After a few mild seconds of tranquility, she flicked on a few switches by the side, turning the lights on, blinding Beast Boy and waking him up......
.....while also revealing his unusual green skin.
The first thing that he says when he looks up at the light was downright random yet hilarious.
Garfield: I-is—is that you, God?
They kept the light on him longer than expected until the head staff member stepped in front of the lights, finally giving Garfield the chance for his eyes to adjust.
Julie: Hello, Garfield.
Garfield: God, shall I walk into the light?
Julie: Heh. No, silly. You’re still here with us.
Garfield: Well, what’s next on the menu?
Julie: Well, since you're not in heaven, that’s good on both of our consciousness. We’re just going to make run a few more test reactions.
Just as she let Garfield out some business men walked in
Business man: Sorry miss. This thing is government property by the order of Amanda Waller.
Julie: You can't just barge in here and bark orders. This is a private facility under funding of Bruce Wayne.
Business man # 2: *Shows her a ward* See and examine. Ms Waller's legalize order for the creature.
Julie: Creature?!?! EXCUSE ME, but This "Creature" is a little boy trapped in this mutating body. He lost his parents in a terrible accident. He needs to be in right hands and guidance. You can't JUST take him for....government properties! Where is Waller?! Let me talk to her about this!
Business man # 1: This is beyond your hands. Take her out.
The second man pulled her away she tried to struggle
The first man opened the seal and tried to grab Garfield
Garfield: Get away from me YOU DEVIL FALLOWER!
Business man # 1: Come here you little filthy animal!
Feeling threaten Garfield changed into a green wolf and BITES the man
He yelled out bleeding from his hand
The second man tried to catch him but he then changed into a green Gorilla runned him down
Head staff: RUN GARFIELD! RUN FAST AS YOU CAN!
Fallowing her plea he ran out to the hall just to be cornered by more Agency they point their guns at him but....
…..Garfield got more intense with feeling threaten he grew more angry....
….He soon formed into a...
….A nine hundred foot prieorstoric lizard creature! And burst out of the back of the building roaring
(With a mixture of Godzilla AND the Jurassic Park T-Rex roars)
And began stomping out into the city
And Cyborg on a roof who JUST arrived saw it happened
Cutting to an abandon facility (Old Arkham Asylum) Raven creeped around in her tracking on the Tamaranean girl
She roamed the room like an ant in a wood shack
Raven: Idk if these readings are right....but....Idk how any Tameranean would be cozy here.
She soon eyed at a hall with a green light at the end of it
Raven: That....could be something....
She walked over to see the same alien woman....
…..eating dead rats!
(Trust me she ate weirder things....oh I'm gonna be sick)
Raven: Uhh….guess you would have gotten hungry sooner or later
She looked over frowned and shined her green glowing hands at her
Raven thinking fast she cast her spell
Raven: Azerath Netrian Zinthos!
The spell strikes into the alien woman's mind and....
….it seemed to stun her but got her to calm down and she powered down
Raven: There you go.
Alien woman: My....humblest apologies earthling.
Raven: You know you're on earth?
Alien Woman: I can tell by the atmosphere.
Raven: Well....neither one of us are from this world but....it grew on me. So....you got a name?
Alien Woman: My conorphca's (Parents in Tameranean) called me....Kori.
Raven: Raven. Come on. I got a place you can crash. And....
Raven eyed at her the camera cutting from behind her bare right shoulder
Raven: Uhh….first we better get you dressed.
Kori: I have a set of armor in my ship.
Raven: And you didn't had it on before because--??
Kori: I was on in hurry while escaping the prison ship I was on.
Raven just raised an eyebrow
Kori: It's a long story....but there is no need to express the matter even more.
To be fair despite being new to this planet as well Ravens feeling towards this new alien creature just.....it sort of grew uncomfortable having to look at her in THAT WAY
In quick succession she closed her eyes grabbing ahold of Koriand'r and just like that.....
…..she vanished with the alien Tamaranean in a void of dark energy
Back with the Boy Wonders....
…..I guess you can say they kinda got lost?
Well lost is an overstatement I should say they ALMOST got lost since Robin was having difficulty catching up to Nightwing since he was a few seconds FASTER than him The again he's still in training
Can't expect them all to be experts
Nightwing: Seriously Tim?
He does catch up to him
Robin: Hey....*Breathing heavily*…..give a guy break will ya? It's my first time in Bludhaven.
Nighwing: Exactly what I thought.
Robin: Guess we both have our given response to unfamiliar territories
Nightwing: Well I don't hear MY FANS complaining.
Robin: Uh....*Chuckles*....what? I mean....never mind. How close are we?
Nightwing just points down his bottom right
Nightwing: It's right down there.
The sound was faint but echolocation was interesting in itself as a slight rumbling erupted through the roads and on the roof tops as well making both Boy Wonders feel relatively uncomfortable
Nightwing: Ok I did NOT order an upset stomach. What was that?
Robin: Whatever it was it wasn't far
Each stomps keeps getting louder...
...until it became all the more obvious that whatever was out there was heading towards their direction.
Both of Batman's sidekicks looked back just to see the exact SAME creature stomping towards their way roaring
Nightwing: HOLY--GET DOWN!!
Nightwing pulled Robin down and jumped aside getting out of the creature's path
They looked up seeing go
Robin: My god....is that--freaking Godzilla? He's suppose to be in Japan.
Nightwing: Idk Tim. Godzilla would be worse than this thing. Better call in backup. *Presses on ear radio* Victor come in. You seeing what I'm seeing?
Cyborg: *Jet flying* That thing came out of Goth-Corp the minute I arrive~ Whatever cookies they were baking in their easy bake oven just got CRISPY!
Nightwing: Ok stay on it. I'll try to contact Raven. Maybe she can reach it with her mind magic. I don't think that green color is a quincedence. Tim and I will form a plan.
Wait Tim is with you?
Nightwing: My....."Bat-Foster" Father sent him to join the Titans to complete his training. And for backup hearing Deathstroke broke out of prison. Look let's talk about this later we got work to do.
Cyborg flew after Garzilla (Mixing Garfield and Godzilla Lol) at it stomped into town square with people with people screaming running
Cyborg: Alright big boy! Time for your nap!
He held out his hand shooting his sonic cannon in stun mode
It slightly effected him but only got his attention
Cyborg: Oh crap!
Garzilla opened his mouth feeling threaten still.....
Cyborg just zoomed off like a fly escaping from a cat
And he tailed him trying to eat him
Cyborg: Oh sweet muffins! Why am I always the one getting chased by big ugly monsters?!
He kept chasing him trying to eat Victor thinking fast he clutched his cannon and pointed it at Garzilla just he opened his mouth again
Cyborg: So you're hungry huh? Eat some sonic!
He fired and stunned the creature long enough for Victor to plan another attack
Back on Mt Bludavin
Raven: So....you were captured for profit?
By our enemies. The Gormits. They have been trying to overthrow the Emperor for many generations
Raven: Hmm *Thinks* And as far as I heard....most Tamarenaens don't know English. How did you---
Tamaraneans are able to learn languages from other worlds through LIP contact.
Raven: Oh....That does explain why you kissed Dick.
Soon Kori stepped out of the trees in her....
...purple Tamaranean armor looking more beautiful and strong
Soon as she stepped out of the woods with her "battle armor" if you will she went stretching out her arms her legs and then her neck yet again....
….which gave away a particularly interesting fact about her
In addition to her being not having any pupils in her green eye sockets she was practically six foot something tall
She was almost a seven foot giant
Raven: Ahh. I see you must of SPACED out on this meeting
Kori: Is that supposed to be and an alien joke?
Raven: You got me there.
Distant faint voices start echoing and repeating at nausea in Raven's head and luckily it wasn't the cryptic and demonic voice from before. Cause it was easier to read and easier to trust too.
Closing her eyes....
Back to the city.....
Cyborg: I really hope you've got a good view over there in the mountain cause you're about to get pounded six ways to Sunday.
I don't understand thing you call "slag" Victor.
Cyborg: There's a difference between slang and a threat!
He looks back behind and barely barrel-rolls out of Garzilla's path of trajectory as it slams it's slams it's tail through three buildings and then sweeps around discarding the remains out to the street possibly injuring tons of civilians. Even as Cyborg firing as many sonic blasts and magna rockets at the beast nothing would slow it down.
If anything it just pissed off the monster even more.
It once again eyes at Cyborg who was heading back towards the same place in which the giant mutant creature had come from....
…..the Goth-Corp building
And since Garzilla wasn't in control of his actions.....
And since Garzilla wasn't in control of his actions....
…..he just charged right after him again unaware that he'd actually KILL people this time around if somebody didn't stop him.
Cyborg: I'm not above becoming like with the trash compactor! If you're gonna do something---
---you better do it quick!
The voice finally leave Raven but the threat has been made clear to her.
Raven: *Sighs* Kori, I need to go.
Kori: Go? For what exact purpose?
It would be.....difficult trying to explain that her side of the story let alone the fact that her friends consist of two proteges of the Dark Knight (Dick and Tim) and a metamorphosis of man and machine (Victor) doing battle with a freaking green Godzilla rip off up of a monster.
So she just stated the obvious.
Raven: My fr-friends need me.
Kori: Friends? What are....these called "friends"?
Raven: Um....I--I guess I can explain that but....first I gotta help them take care of pest control.
Kori: Maybe....I can help.
Raven: Well....oh what the hell. It was Dick's idea to recruit you.
Kori: Recruit me? What is recruit me? And who is this Dick.
Raven:.....We are so screwed.
Cutting back to the boy wonders they both rode on their bikes like Ghost Rider and Slade racing to San Vanganza
They all smirked at one another like kids drag racing
(How did Bruce put up with them together....depending when they were I mean)
Just then....Victor saw them coming
Cyborg: About time!
Nightwing: Not now Cy.
Robin: What is that thing?!
Cyborg: I don't know....like I said it came out of Goth-Corp.
Perhaps I can answer that gentlemen.
They turned to see the Staff member who was kind to Garfield and must have escaped the Agency.
Nightwing: Hey...I know you. You're---
Head member: Julie Madison. Recent Head Staff of Goth-Corp after Ferris Boiler. And former executive of Wayne enterprises.
Nightwing: I thought you looked familiar.
Cyborg: You know her?
Nightwing cleared his throat and held up two fingers to his head making a bat shape image
Nightwing: So tell me what we're dealing with.
Julie: That poor creature is really a young man named Garfield Lens. He's a mutating test subject for Goth-Corp gifted with animal shape shifting. Apparently the Agency of the Government wanted him for top secrecy. Garfield got so scared his mutation set off a chain reaction that made him loose control of his powers he formed into this.
Nightwing: Waller. Isn't if that Squad of Criminals wasn't enough for her.
Robin: So anyway to...."Cure" him?
Julie: Don't think this too much but....he needs a lullaby.
Robin: You mean like to put him to sleep?
Once again that stomp draws all of their attention span over to the green mutated giant Godzilla Hulk-like monster once again raging towards them
With each hug step it only appeared to be going faster and faster in speed with it's tail smacking against building after building knocking them al down to ruble
Robin: Are you sure this mutation won't wear off soon?
Julie: He can't control it yet so whatever happens between mutations it's up to what his mind says
Cyborg: Right now I bet he's probably saying "Get the HELL OUT OF THE WAY!"
Almost immediately they all ducked out of the beasts path of trajectory as Tim pulled Dick out of the way and Cyborg grabbed ahold of Julie and boosted her up higher ground
Cyborg: You ok? Anything Wrong?
Julie: I'll be fine. It's HIM I'm worried about.
Cyborg: We'll get him back down to size Alright? No worries.
Julie: Just don't hurt him.
Back down on the ground Robin got Dick back up on his feet With no time to address the situation they end up shooting their Batclaws aside from one another for the means of using them as tripwires.
They also kept themselves anchored into the walls them so there was no way they would their balance easily and fall over if they were to break.
As expected the Garzilla did come by the tripwires and walk past it although it did slow cause trust me hose Batclaw cables are insanely strong. But at the same time it wasn't really stopping him
No matter how badly Nigthwing or Robin pulled on their cables it didn't slow or altar Garzilla's movement in the slightest In fact Cyborg came out infront out of the beast in a vain attempt to push him BACK with his jetpack
But he immediately gets b__chslapped by the beast
At this point the cables barely keeping the monster in place began to snap. It wasn't long they would completely break
…..the entire sky the atmosphere the environment EVERYTHING just dilated into a pitch form of black and white and it kept randomly appearing so frequently that not even the Garzilla knew what exactly it was
Suddenly there was....this screeching hawk-like sound
…...and from behind him this huge 15 ft tall static Raven bird quickly flashes behind Garzilla at almost the speed of light....
…..and pierces him straight through the back of his head
And THAT'S what makes him fall over
Nightwing: About t--
The Tameranean notice him too
Both (Nightwing and Kori): YOU!!!
Kori: I WARNED YOU TO LEAVE ME ALONE!
Nightwing: WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?! YOU ATTACKED ME! THEN YOU KISSED ME! WHAT'S YOUR DEAL?!
Raven: Uh....guys...maybe you can argue later and focus at the problem at hand here.
Garzilla was still stunned but tried to stand
Nightwing: Quick Raven....you got to get in it's head and sing a lullaby.
Raven: You're joking....right?
(I don't think he is)
Nightwing: Just trust me on this. That creature is actually a person. He'll come around if someone can sing to him.
Raven: Well why me?
Nightwing: Because you're the only one who can get in his head. We might need him for....whatever we have to face you keep telling us about....
Raven: Oh now you tell me.
She levitated to the stunned beast just for Dick and Nightwing to make odd eye contact
Soon as Garfield snarled softly Raven came infront of him and the beast eyed at her
Raven: Azerath Netrian Ziiiiiiinthos.
He spell allowed her to penetrate Garzilla's mind and she was able to speak in his head
Hush little child don't you fret. No one's gonna hurt you on my watch. Come to us in your true form. Then maybe we can all get along. And if anyone tries to hurt you, then we will stand a fight together.
Raven felt weird doing this but....
….it seemed to work
Garzilla began to shrink into human size and change back to his regular mutated self
Garfield: Uhh….my head...what...
He looked up to Raven and was...rather stunned of her appearance
Only to be startled by....
He looked over to see Julie rush to him a quick hug
Julie: Are you alright?
Garfield: I think so Angel.
Julie: His parents were high Christan's. He thinks of me of his Guardian Angel since he was brought to Goth-Corp
Suddenly Agency cars and a helicopter was hovering to land
(Guess who's on that helicopter)
Julie: Oh no....
Raven: Who are they?
Nightwing: Agency. Run by the worst woman on earth.
Julie: You all better get out of here. And take Garfield with you. I can't let them take him.
Nightwing: Understood. Come with us kid.
He held out his hand to Garfield he wasn't sure at first till....
…..he looked at Julie who nodded to him and trusting her after everything she did for him and took Nightwing's hand
Seeing Dick's kindness somehow had a slight effect on Kori and her anger to him from before...
….somehow slipped out of her....
...and was touched by it but didn't know why
Nightwing: Titans. Back to the tower.
Garfield: Titans? What you'd---
He took a few good seconds to look at his entire body armor to look at his entire body armor his gadgets belt with the exception of the one escrima stick on his back (Since Kori destroyed the other one) and somehow....
….managed to make an immediate connedtion
Garfield: Wow. Wait oh my god! ARE YOU NIG--
He quickly covers up his mouth in desperation trying to keep his identity under wraps till later....apparently
Nightwing: Shhh! Yes. But THEY can't know but us. Ok?
The mutated boy kept running his mouth while muffled up and it's safe to say it quickly got a little annoying. But as Robin comes back towards his side and nods to Raven....
….she again closes her eyes and VANISHED with them all in it
Kori was the only one rare exception she just looked around at all the destruction seeing a familiar pattern to her in the layers of chaos unleashed....
…..for it brought back a eerily familiar moment in her life
Not wanting to relive those moments she quickly turned away from Julie and flew off with this huge gust of wind behind her
Julie looking back at the helicopter landing smack dab in the middle of the street was flustered and angry at whoever was behind this it just so happened that the one who she blamed for this stepped out that very same helicopter....
….to come face to face with her
Amanda Waller (Viola Davis)
For the next few seconds the two highly intelligent women stared down each other like the proletariet beings they were but with one of them intended to help....it was unsure what the other ones intentions were
Waller: Well...if I am to be 100% honest....I wasn't really looking forward to this Julie.But….what needs to be done....needs to be done.
With this blank and helpless expression on her face two government authority agents garb her by the arms and they take her with Waller....
….for whatever purpose she might have for them
However....in the midst of all the Earth drama....
….there was a certain eruption just waiting to be unleashed....
….in the firey depths of Hell itself what we see is not who we expected when it comes to hell.....
A devil like figure sat and brood in the shadows and it soon turned it's head from the shadows to reveal....
Trigon (Ron Perman): You....WILL be mine. ALL of it will be mine!
The next day Raven took another meditation on the roof....
….but soon she fell into another vision
She was in hell itself and who was right before her...
Trigon: You cannot hide forever. Your right lies to me.
Raven: Think again you....you...
Trigon: You NOTHING! The portal must be open. You will fulfill your destiny. Your mother KNEW this to be true.
Raven: No! You murdered her....and destroyed my home....I won't let you REPEAT IT!
Trigon: You NOTHING! The portal must be open. You will fulfill your destiny. Your mother KNEW this to be true.
Raven: No! You killed her....and destroyed my home....I won't let you REPEAT!
Trigon: FOOLISH GIRL! KNOW YOUR PLACE!
He reached for her and she screamed
But soon she woke up breathing again....
…..looked out to the sun rise...
….but this time...
….she looked out angry
Raven: You....you take this world....or any world like you did mine...I'll destroy you if the last thing I do.
Victor took tests on Garfield's abilities in the training room he shifted to from Lion Tiger to Bear and oh my....
….crushed any robot and optical course he was summit to
On the balcony Dick and Tim stood on the railing watching the commotion and fell into a conversation
Tim: So let me get this straight. You and Vic are building this Titan team to fight Satan??
Dick: Something like that. Raven doesn't talk much about it much says she tries to contain it as much as she can but....this thing is starting to reach her and she's loosing strength to keep it contain
Tim: This sounds like bible apocalypse stuff. I got a feeling we should call Superman and the rest of the league.
Dick: Nah if we do that this program wouldn't be worth building. It's not only for training younger heroes it's another team like the League.
Tim: I see.
Dick: By the way. How's the old man?
Tim: You mean Bruce or Alfred?
They both laughed he knew what Dick meant once and a while they just joke which "Old" man they mean
Tim: *Chuckles*Anyway....he's still as broody as ever. Alfred's still like "Always remember to make your own bed, sir."
They laughed again
Dick: Gosh. Anyway....
Before he could say more.....
…..the alarms went off
Tim: Duty calls?
Dick: Pretty much
They both rush towards back into the room that led towards the balcony they were on as Tim rushed into the seat next to Brother Eye and quickly typed in the source of the troubles was brewing form
Thing is.....as soon as Brother Eye pulled up both the location and the cause for the alarm going off....Dick just sighed heavily
He and Tim saw Koriand'r on the screen just flying
Apparently brother eye still picks her up as a threat
Dick: Oh you son of a--
Tim: You know her?
Dick had nothing to say to that.
All he did say in response was....
Dick: You know what? I think I'll handle this Tim.
Tim: Wha--Just ME?
Dick: I mean sure. Why the hell not? Raven's in her mental zone Victors still working out the trinkets with Garfield. You say you want in this team? This is your chance.
Tim: I just....let's just say I can't really understand her.....cause she KISSED me last night and.....just SHOVED me off....Idk why.
Tim: Ohhh....I get it. You got the hots for this girl yet she kicks your ass all around.
Dick: Will you just do this?!
Tim: Oh fine.
They took a look at the screen and saw....
…..Kori being captured by Slade's minions and they put her in titanium on her arms and legs
Dick: What the---SLADE'S MINIONS!
Dick: Wilson. AKA Deathstroke the Terminator.
Tim: Arnold Schwarzenegger??
Dick: No. This is different. Bruce fought this guy before (Which will be in the Batman movie) and he's a master assassin but a hit man from Gotham
Tim: So what does he want with your girlfriend?
Dick: SHE'S NOT MY--Um...Idk but we got to save her. Suit up.
Tim: Thought you wanted me to do this on my own.
Dick: Well with Slade....you'll need my help.
Later they were heading out in their gear
Nightwing: Vic take over I'll be back soon.
Victor: Sure but I wish you'd let me help.
Nightwing: I need you to keep progressing with Garfield. I'll contact you if I need to.
They hopped on their bikes and rode out which in Nightwing's mind....
….out to save the damsel in distress
Back in the depths of the city those ever familiar APC militia vans were literally roaming roads of the city in droves....
...let alone an organized straight line
As for our "damsel in distress" if you will she was relentless and even more that she was captured YET AGAIN With four men trying to hold her down inside the APC militia vans her patience quickly ran thin....
….and her eyes once again glew that bright green fluorescent color
Unwilling to put up with capture yet again she flew straight up with capture yet again she flew straight up and banged up against the inside ceiling knocking out one of Slade officers. As soon as she recovered and just floated with her feet not touching the floor the rest of Slades three officers just opened fire and shot at her....
….or at least TRIES to shoot her....
….cause Kori was able to dodge every single bullet that came in her direction like a freaking Matrix agent
(Yeah she really was this fast in the comics I believe)
Almost immediately the three officers just froze up and backed up as Kori cracked her neck again
She holds her hands out towards them as her hands glow up with that green particle ready to blast them all to oblivion
And foolishly the officers once again aim at her
Hearing that raspy yet fast tempered voice made his officers look back behind them to get a good look at the infamous mercenary turned assassin....
Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello)
This didn't help Kori's cause as she kept her arms pressed out this time aimed at HIM. His officers wanted NOTHING to do with that so they just backed up. As for Deathstroke as soon as he gets a good glimpse at Kori's orange skin her unusual height advantage.....
….and the guard that she knocked out behind her the first thing that he said was....
Deathstroke: Yet another meta-human freak.
Kori: Meta...human? You face the princess of Tamaran you foil disgusting...…
Deathstroke: All the more tempting.
Kori: State your presence human! NOW!
Deathstroke: MY presence?
He takes a few steps forward as he stares down the Tamaraen princess
Deathstroke: YOU were right where I wanted you.
Not taking his word for it she pressed to blast him but.....
…..He pressed a button on his arm pad which triggered a shock on her
A collar was placed on her neck during her capture incase she tried to fight her way out
Deathstroke: The collar I placed upon you is a high voltage manual faction. I could have it kill you if I wanted you dead. But you're more useful to me alive....I can just have it sting you the more you resist.
Kori: Filthy dark hearted clorebag! You will receive Tamaranean execution for this!
Dethstroke: Don't fret my dear. The less you struggle the less it hurts.
The tank soon pulled into the abandon mine where Slade and his crew set up shop
Soon as it opened Deathstroke forced her out still stinging her with the collar more she tried to fight and some more familiar militia men grabbed her awaiting orders
Deathstroke: Put her on the titanium holding. And be carful she might bite
Deathstroke: I gotta make a call the boss. (Red Hood)
They carried out Slade's orders as Kori acted more fierce but unaware from the top of the mine.....
…..Nigtwing and Robin were hiding and spying on the militia seeing they were taking Kori out of the room
Robin: What'd they planning to do with her?
Nightwing: Idk....but we got to get her out. Knowing Deathstroke he might use her for a weapon. From what I hear about where she's from.
Robin: We need a plan.
Nightwing: Agreed. Let's split up and plan out our tactics
And when they went their separate ways
As the militia went on their duties Robin sneaked behind crates and stash and soon set a red robinerang which wasn't an ordinary one
He quickly tossed it when one of them turned their backs then.....
….it stook on a wall and it set off a chain reaction which blinded the militia in some streaking flash then....
….it stook on a wall and it set off a chain reaction which blinded the militia in some streaking flash then....
…..The boy wonder brawled them all down one after another
Meanwhile soon as Kori was restrain she growled more at the two men holding her but Nightwing entered the room hiding and he saw the beautiful alien woman trapped and doing the one thing possible.....
…..he rolled a techno smoke pellet and blew out smoke the men yelled and coughed as Kori looked confused
then in the smoke Nightwing beat down the two men and appeared before her as it cleared
Kori: Why are you here?
Nightwing: I think the word you meant was "Thank you".
He soon unstrained her only to be startled by a voice
You didn't think it be that easy. Did you Nightwing?
They both looked to see Deathstroke standing by the doorway with arms crossed and one foot on the wall
Nightwing: Slade Wilson. What are you plotting this time?
Deathstroke: Don't you think I would have informed you if I wanted you know that.
Kori pointed her hands with green flashes but....
He pointed her hands with green flashes but....
He holds up his arm with the trigger button exposed
Deathstroke: Now now little princess one blast and you get shock
Kori for one didn't like the shock. Not that she didn't understand the purpose of it but she CLEARLY did not take kindly to being held prisoner
The entire time she had it prepped directly at him she couldn't help but to stare directly back at Dick who had this calm cool collected expression on his face as if he was saying.....
"I got this"
Somewhat; taking his words to heart especially after yesterday....she lets her guard down and let's her hands down.
That would've been the end of it but....come on. That would've been too simble
Just as Nightwing grabbed his new set of escrima sticks and threw at the Merc-assassin Deathstroke practically saw them coming as he jumped over time they came around or blocked them with his sword
And boy was he fast
But in that brief moment as he let his guard down an escrima stick brims past his face mask and knocks the armpad shock detonator OFF OF HIM.....
…..prompting him to throw his sword over at Nightwing He bends backyards to dodge the sword to dodge the sword but it clicks him on the shoulder before he could catch his escrima stcks back.....
….and THEN Kori blasts him square in his chest knocking him back about a few feet away from the two
As he recovers and looks back at the two Kori turns to Nightwing and.....
….Sticks her out of him?
Nightwing: What no kiss this time around?
Kori I believe the term you mean to use here is....THANK YOU.
Hearing this Dick just chuckles as he takes her hand and she helps him back up
But at the same time Slade is ALSO back up on his feet staring both of them down
As a quick knee-jerk reaction Nightwing picks up both of his escrima sticks and then TURNS THEM ON....
….resulting in electric escrima sticks.
He then connects both of them together to create an electric staff
Two on one
This is gonna be interesting
Deathstroke: Two against one isn't a fair odd. But I love a double challenge.
Kori: What is this double challenge he is saying?
Nightwing: It means he's not worried about two against him.
She looked at him oddly then at Slade who took his staff out and charged at them
Nightwing ran as Kori flew at him he deflected Slade's attacks with his escrima sticks as Kori blasted her star bolts at him making him loose his balance
Just for Nightwing to throw the final blow on his head....
….which cracked his mask
But only a scratch was barely enough to slow him down as launched a blow of his own as launched a blow of his own
Nightwing was sent flying across the room hitting a mine crate
Deathstroke had just turned to Kori who threw more star bolts at him blowing him off the ground and fell in a dug hole
Nightwing saw the action and....
...he was pretty amazed how powerful she was
She landed beside him and....
….offered him a hand
He took it and just a moment of silence
Kori: I am very unaware of these things on your planet. But I can tell you pose no threat. For the way you rescued me.
Nigtwing: Well I consider us even the way you forced Deathstroke off me like that. But where did you learn those abilities?
Kori: On my home planet those with royal blood carry instabilities of star bolts.
Nightwing: Star bolts? I first considered Star Fire.....Star....Fire....Starfire?
Kori: What is this Starfire you are speaking of
Before that could be answered....
….Deathstroke recovered with half his face exposed from the crack of his mask braking it in half from that stunt
He looked angry and hit....
….a self destruct countdown on the mine
They heard the alarms going off Slade's men ran as Robin looked around confused
Deathstroke ran for an emergency exit
Deathstroke: Another day Nightwing. Another day.
He blew the seal trapping them both
Nightwing: What now?!
Kori: Out of my way!
She blast on the wall creating another exit
Nightwing: Wait! My friend is in here somewhere. I can't leave him.
Kori: You will go then! I will find him.
She flew back across in the mine
As the mine began to tumble and shake Robin ran but every exit was sealed
He thought that was it for him there till....
….he felt himself grabbed and lift up in the air
He looked up to see Kori flying him out
Nightwing saw them coming back and in the last nano seconds Kori flying him out
The three looked back at one another
Robin: So....she's on our side?
Nightwing: I was gonna ask that. *To Kori* Are you....?
Kori: Your ways are still strange to me. But seeing that you two were willing to help me in there. I will take your proposal.
Nightwing: Then would you like to join "The Titans"?
Kori: If I accept tell me of that word "Starfire".
Nightwing: Oh...uh...well in our organization we keep our organization we keep our identities secret. Hidden from our enemies to protect our families. In the Titans we are known by alter egos. Hero names. And with those star things...perhaps you could be called....Starfire.
Kori: I...LIKE it.
At then they laughed and all even Kori went back for Titans tower
But back there Garfield took a brake from training and wondered around the tower
Amazed how there was so much space and a large living room and five bathrooms in the halls
Some of the bedrooms had bathrooms of their own so it pretty much bathrooms really
Garfield looked in the fourth room he saw and....
….saw Raven meditating again
Raven: Azerath Netrian Zinthos. Azerath Netrian Zinthos.
There was no hyper sensitive quick reaction to everything that Garfield sensitive quick reaction to everything that Garfield was actually looking out or examining seeing that somebody else was here with after being exhausted and worn out from training.....
…..for reasons he couldn't possibly understand.
Seeing Raven in her own little zone wasn't a big enough hint that she needed to be left alone....
…..so he ended up knocking
And sure enough it distracted her as she snapped out of her concentrated state....which just so happened to be a good thing.....because she would've dipped down back into that zone again
She then bolts her eyes directly up at the poor child sensing the aura presented from her eyes and appearance he quickly jumps back towards the wall and just bursts off running
Garfield not wanting ANYTHING to do with Raven after that just waltz into the main room unsure of where to go next. But since the room was so big he quickly lost his sense of direction as he stumbled over to couch and fell
As soon as he looks back up with an upside down view he see's Raven....reappear right in front of him looking down upon the young man
Raven: You're welcome.
Garfield immediately waltz off the couch and just stares down Raven again as she flips her hood down so she could take a good look at her pale skin and her eyes
Garfield: Umm...what am I thanking you for exactly?
Raven: Saving your life. Stopping you from making a huge mistake.
Garfield: It's kind of a blur to me.
Raven: I guess shouldn't be surprised. What you doing in here anyway?
Garfield: I....guess I look too deep exploring this place.
Raven: Must have.
Garfield: I do remember one thing. That lullaby I heard in my mind...that was you wasn't it?
Raven: You win the metal.
Garfield: Well thanks are in order. But there's still one thing bothering me. When you were in my head I couldn't help but to see a little in yours....
Raven: What'd you getting at?
Garfield: That demon.....it look like the Devil. It seemed like something out of hell itself. What's the deal with that?
Raven: It's just a dream I had. That's all.
Garfield: No....it looked too deep to be a dream. What's your connection with that thing?
Raven: It's none of your business and if you knew anything about it...you be smart not to dig your nose deep in it. Now I don't mean to be rude but would you mind clearing out?
Garfield: I'm not trying to barge in further...but....if something try to hurt you....I would protect you....
Raven looked up hearing that sweet statement from him....
…..but as much as it touched her it was pointless to her
How would Garfield protect her from Trigon?
He doesn't even know half of the situation that's occurring
Feeling like this prep talk was pointless he was just about to walk out said room until.....
That sounds like an unofficial confirmation to me.
Yes....yes it did.
The voice prompted both of them to turn back towards the balcony to see Kori dropping off both Dick and Tim right then and there.
It sure felt...a little awkard seeing that Garfield was up
Kori: Odd that we would meet up again so soon after our previous encounter.
Raven: That makes two of us.
As for Garfield....he kept his eyes over a Robin.
Garfield: Wowza….you're Robin aren't you? H-how can I be of assistance sir?
Robin: Well you can start by not calling me "sir".
This was it. This entire team they would have. It's six people against Satan himself. How exactly do you explain that?
We have two Boy wonders a lost Azerathian a metamorphosis of man and machine a Tamaranean princess and a mutating animal child. So....what's next?
Nightwing: Well then....I guess the entire gangs here. Should we uh....get settled in?
Raven: The sooner we do so, the sooner we'll be prepared.
Kori: Prepare for what?
Garfield: My thoughts exactly.
Oh boy....this was gonna be hard to update
Garfield: Is it over th-that devil thing?
Raven: TOUCHING THE WRONG NERVE kid.
Everyone looked towards her even Garfield and Kori who were the most confused
Raven: Perhaps it's better if I tell you all...in one room. Including Victor.
Dick: Sounds like a good idea Rave. We all need to know what we're dealing with if the Titans are gonna stop it.
Garfield: No offence dude. But THE Titans doesn't sound right. It sounds like it needs a new title....or another name add into it
Dick: What would call it then?
Garfield: Well....what about....The Tee---
Raven: HEY! We need to focus at the problem at hand.
Dick: She's right. Tim go get Victor.
Tim nodded and exit the room
And later they all met in the main hall and sat as Raven stood before them at first facing the computer then them
Raven: For many centuries....
The screen cuts to a flashback with everything Raven says....
…..happens in the flashback
Homeworld Azerath was a place of prosperity and peace. We had always had the stars and the spirit of our annsassters.
Many centuries ago when my mother Arella was young and Air to the thrown.
(Yeah I told you Raven was around for awhile that's how long)
She was chosen to be the classic bride of Satan arranged by the darkest cult of my homeworld. And when the ceremony was completed
The cult chanted on as the circle around Arella and it shot up above appearing....
Arella: NO! PLEASE!
The cult closed the doors locking her in there as she looked up with Trigon attacking the screen
Screams echoed cutting back to the main hall with Raven's eyes closed....
….then opened them
Raven: My mother was taken on that cold flour after the cult left her there to suffer
The others were horrified of what was saying
Dick: That's horrible.
Garfield: Wicked Exposures
Cutting back to the Flashback
In time our finest warriors broke into their temple and the dark cult....what was left of them flead they found my mother....naked and covered bruises they managed to subdue Trigon and banished him to a dark realm of imprisonment. They brought her back home....but the wounds left on her took years to heal
But sometime later when she inherited the thrown she found herself with child. Trigon's offspring. What the cult intended to help Trigon in his quest to rule the universe in hate and evil. And that was through the child of Trigon.
Soon the screen cut back to reality
Kori that child was you?
Garfield: And I thought my foster parents were pure evil.
Cutting back to the flashback which shows most of the beginning of this
I spent most of my childhood in the temple of Zinthos. I tried to figure out answers that my mother was afraid to give me. Where I meditated to find them. But one day our sun was eclipsed by a blackest moon
It made the skies burning red and Trigon himself reached out from the wall I meditated to grab me until my mother and her warriors pulled me out of there.
But Azerath was close to extinction. My mother arranged fot the survival of our race I was sent to earth and meditate to keep him from reaching me. But just when they began the ceremony to transport me here Trigon was already behind the door
My last moment with my mother...
....Was a Goodbye and the next thing I knew I found myself here knowing my homeworld was destroyed.
The flashback ended again as Raven tried to hide her tears
Raven: And now...five years later....he's managed to reach me once again.
Finally....she couldn't hold them back any longer
An entire trail of tears tricked down both her eyes as they drenched her cheekbones in front of the others no less
Feeling the biggest amount of sympathy for anyone in practically a long time Victor got up from the couch and hugged Raven tightly
First time anyone ever bothered to hug her
It felt out of place and just awkward since.....five years since anyone bother to give her one dose of respect comfort and love
But going through it all Raven wrapped her arms around Victor hugging him back
Raven: And here I thought no one would understand.
Victor: Trust me....all of us here have something to fear. All of us are the furthest thing from normal as it can get.
Raven: How so?
He backs up from the hug so that Raven can get a good look at his cybernetic body armor and look
Victor: Seriously, I'm part man and part machine now. I get caught in an explosion my father uses the power of the Motherbox to build me back up from scratch and....now...now I'm the pinnacle of scientific achievement
Kori: That does not sound all that much of an issue to worry about.
Victor: Except when you take in for account that I'm connected to EVERY NETWORK and DEVICE on the planet
Garfield: Man. You must get DISTRACTED easily.
That sort of killed the mood
Victor: Hey, don't ruin it.
Garfield: Hey I'm just saying.
Brief moment of silence
Until someone else spoke up
Tim: Well umm....I guess I'll be next to tell mine.
Dick: Actually....the Both of us will tell OUR story next.
Looking over at his mentor/second father figure he quickly agreed with him. They both stood squarely off the couch and stood infront of the room just as Raven and Victor backed up giving them the space they need to explain THEIR story
Dick: So....*Sighs* for those who DON'T know me my name is Dick Grayson.
Tim: Tim Drake.
Dick: It's safe to say....we both had similar trajectories in our time.
Again a brief moment of silence overtook the room as everyone just piped in to listen
Dick: My parents....MY FLESH AND BLOOD...the Flying Grayson's....were murdered by a mafia boss right in front of my eyes.....
Tim: And I just happened to be there in the crowd and saw it happened.
Dick suddenly bolts his head back towards him...like he didn't know that
Dick: You were there?
Tim: My dad took me to see the circus. I looked up your family thinking you guys could REALLY fly.
Dick: Huh....well anyway....after my parents murder....the GCPD believed it was an accident cause the rope was broke off....cause it was CUT! They thought I was saying stuff out of grief but I saw the rope cut. The man who took me in was the only one who believed me. His name was Wayne. Bruce Wayne.
Victor: Wait....you also mean....BATMAN??
Tim: He took me in too. About a month after my old man passed.....he rescued me from that mad man. Who locals know as the Joker.
Dick: And he was the worst kind of criminal in Gotham even in Bludhavin. Years with Bruce I hardly fit in anywhere people looked at me like I ran over someone's dog.
Tim: And my years with him was mostly detention and training with Batman.
Dick: And in time I learned Bruce's alter ego let's just say I did a lot of sneaking out....wearing Batman's suits. And fought crime in hope to find my parents killer
(Yes he did)
Tim: He told me about that.
Dick: After that the REAL Batman wasn't very happy with that. He tried to keep me out of the cave as much as he could....till....our friend Lucius Fox made me a suit based on my flying Grayson suit. And understanding my grief cause of his own Bruce finally let me join him in his fight against crime and corruption. And I became....the FIRST Robin.
Victor: You were once a Robin?
Dick: Till Bruce and I started having differences. I was tired of him keeping secrets from me. And living in his shadow. I left Gotham and moved to Bludhavin. That's when I became Nightwing.
Tim: And in my time. I been Robin since the Suicide Squad was shut down.
Garfield: So you're the second Robin?
Tim: The third.
Garfield and Kori (Both): Huh??
Dick looked down for he knew where this part of the story was the most tragic
Dick: The second Robin....his name was Jason Todd....and he was my friend.
Raven: What happen to him?
Dick: During with another faceoff with the Joker....he kidnapped Jason tricked us into thinking he died in an explosion.
Tim: Joker sent a video to Bruce....he tortured Jason....manipulated him that Bruce abandon him....for me. Thinking I replaced him.
Dick: And then Joker killed him at the end of the tape.....
He choked up before he could progress any further. The truth about WHAT happened to Jason Todd was already tragic enough for him to discuss but having to let others hear it....just ripped out his heartstrings even more.
They may have not been related.....but he still lost a brother
Victor: Well if you ask me I think Bruce was kinda stupid for not being there when he was needed.
Garfield: All bets are off. Bruce's fault.
Dick: Forget you heard that.
Tim: Oh....kay....well let's move on from that shall we? Uhh….
He quickly points at Kori indicating whether or not she'd be next to share her story. But surprisingly....
(Power Rangers (2017) reference)
….she shakes her head "NO"
Kori: Not now. Skip me.
Odd. Does she still not trust the others even after what they did for her? Technically speaking I GUESS she could trust the Boy Wonders cause they stuck with their word and helped her and vice versa. Then again the rest of the team didn't really know her much either as much as each other.
So she had her reasons to remain cautions.
For they're just allies
Keeping her word to heart Tim acknowledge that gives her some space and turns back to Garfield
Tim: Now we technically already know about you right?
Garfield: Pretty much all except....
Another awkward moment of silence outlays the room almost as if time itself was frozen in place. It really wasn't but to Garfield.....
….it definitely felt that way....since he just realized something.
Beast Boy wonders quickly looked back and forth at each other for a few brief seconds before they realized what he was talking about
Unfortunately they most likely knew what happened.
Tim: Not the time Kori.
Garfield: Julie's taken wasn't she?
Both Dick and Tim nod at him realizing how serious this moment was Garfield just bolted off the couch and....saluted to them both
Garfield: Let me handle this. Ex Doom Patrol member Beast Boy, reporting for duty sirs!
Again everyone looks at each other.
Tim: Again....don't call us "sir". We're all on the same page here ok?
He again salutes
Garfield: Anything to right a wrong just sign me. Julie needs me.
Victor: Uhh….H-Hold on yall.
He turns away from the others and just stretches out his arms again bringing up his own virtual database computer and it suddenly flashes up his own code red alert system.
As he swipes to the right....
...he see's footage of a black mist consuming all of Lex-Corp....and the Justice League surrounding it.
(From Justice League: Part II)
Dick: We better need to get over there....Raven? I'm putting you in charge of the tower till we get back.
Raven: What?? Why me?
Dick: Besides Victor and me you been here the longest. Garfield and Kori....Beast Boy....and Starfire still need to train if they're going to be part of the Titans they need guidance
Raven: I...I don't know. I mean I wasn't one of the teachers....
Dick: Raven. You can do this...we'll come rushing back before you know it. Just before this....Trigon pulls anything.
Raven still wasn't sure about this but....putting her faith in Dick made her understand
Raven: *Sighs* Ok....just don't take too long. I don't know how long I can process this.
Dick: Promise. *To Victor and Tim* Titans. Suit up.
They rushed out to suit up as Dick ordered and Raven turn to Kori and Garfield
Garfield: Who's up for pizza?
Kori: What is this....pizza?
Raven: Ugh....it's going to be a loooong night.
Just when her hand was on her head she notice....
…..burning symbol of Trigon cutting on her wrists
She gasped slightly at the sight of it and even more interesting was how deep the symbol was cutting into her skin...
...indicating that Trigon HER FATHER might be arriving WAY sooner than anticipated
But the marking did burn a LOT
And once again the images reflected upon her childhood those last traumatic moments of her mother's life....all the memories came rushing back to her as familiar and permanent as the dark energy stained to her hood and cloak
She quickly lost balance and dropped down to both her knees as her eyes bolstered a burgrundy blood like color from her pupils with her head crumbling massive agony
She knew damn well who was doing this....but even with a mild like hers....it seemed like her mental strength just wasn't strong enough
Back down in the depths of hell this swirling whirlpool of energy soon began cracking itself open to a larger size ratio however just when it looked like it was about to fully open up all the way....
….it stopped about halfway through
This sight was amusing for Trigon to see Raven's pain and inability to struggle further against her own father made her more inoperable to the consequences as she unwillingly cracked the portal to the Underworld and the real world open a few more inches
It wasn't big enough to send a few of his subjects his minions down there to set an example
Trigon: Send the hellhounds
Once again like video camera this entire sight was trivial for Raven to have to see as he eyes dilated back to normal color and she dropped down on her knees. It didn't last long....but it DID take a lot out of her....
...so much so that Garfield and Kori by her aid and helped her back up
Kori: Raven....are you....OK?
Raven: Far....from it.
Garfield: What was THAT?
She turns towards him.
Raven: Pizza will have to wait Garfield. For now let's go get Julie.
Funny how she said that....
….cause at Amanda Walker's office....
...let's just say Julie was in handcuffs for Agency interference and interrogated by Waller
Waller: Now Miss Madison we'll make this as easy on you as possible IF you tell us where Garfield Logan is.
Julie: Why don't you check your ass pocket there is NO absolutely NO way would I EVER let your secrecy EVER get their hands on him for your....terrorists imitations
Waller: You think this about the Suicide Squad?
Julie: What else would it be? You take things you want like a spoiled brat taking candy from a baby you arrogant greedy selfish HEARTLESS MANIPIULATING DARK HEARTED UNCARRING CRUEL CONTROLLING SLAVE DRIVING B__CH!!!!!!!!
For that ranting insult Amanda stood slamming her desk
Waller: I ONLY WANT TO HELP HIM!
Julie: Oh spare me the comfy talk. You used criminals to do your dirty work which got a which got a lot of people killed. And you SERIOUSLY expect me to believe that BS?
Waller: Yes. Cause his parents.....were my friends.
But after that Julie still didn't believer her
Julie: You're lower than I thought if you EXPECT me to believe---
Waller threw down a file before Julie could finish which brought more silence in the room
She uncuffed her and let her read it
The file did reveal that Garfield's parents WERE part of the Agency long before he was born
In 1995 they stopped a terrorist threat which nearly blew up Metropolis with a nuclear bomb
And retired after marriage and pregnancy
Waller: I'm not always proud of things I do in this agency. But my fight is the same as yours Miss Madison. And I had friends cause I wasn't ALWAYS selfish. Martin and Valery (Garfield's parents) were the bravest people I knew. And the only way I can honor them....is that I help their son.
Julie didn't know what else to say (Neither do I) and she looked up to her
Waller: Just tell me where he is and I give you my word he will have the best care where nothing can hurt him.
After that it was just silence again for Julie did not know weather to trust her or to oppose her still
But she would have to decide fast for Raven Kori and Garfield (As a green eagle) flew straight to Gotham to find Julie only to....
….get a glimpse....
….of another eclipse
Raven: No....not again...
As the skies were darken the hellhounds began to walk out of every corner
Raven could even feel them from above
Raven: We have to land...
Kori: I do not understand....
Raven: (With red eyes): NOW!!
They gasped and landed on the road just as Garfield turn back
Garfield: Yo....what's up with your eyes?
Raven: It's started...
They were confused at first on what she meant by that but that was the LEAST of their problems
They heard growls
and what had them out numbered
Was Trigon's pack of hellhounds
Starfire's eyes glew green as Beast Boy formed into a gorilla
Raven: NO WAIT!
They began to fight but Raven who stood and watch helplessly wishing Dick and Victor were here
Starfire launched a mt of star bolts as Beast Boy from animal to animal but no matter how much the two new recruits took out....
...MORE hounds kept coming and coming
They soon got tired out and were being approached by more hounds
Beast Boy: I'm just about out of ideas....how much you got left....
Starfire: I do not know....my star bolts are running low. It will take minutes to recharge.
Beast Boy: I don't think we got minutes. We may not even have one.
The hellhounds were about to attack till.....
All eyes were directly to Raven
Raven: I'm the one you want. Not them. So take me.
Garfield: Raven no!
Raven: I'm sorry.....sorry I couldn't keep him out of your world. I couldn't keep him out of mine.
The hounds growled and ran and grabbed her with their and dragged her to a dark corner and.....
….they all disapeared
He bolted up from the ground preparing to make a run for that corner but Kori grabbed his shoulders pulling him back
But he wasn't having any of it
Garfield: Let go of ME!
Kori: There is nothing that can be done. She must now face THE face of her fears.
(You get that joke? Whenever Starfire would use "The"?)
He couldn't understand it....but then again I don't think she could either. But....Raven has been Desperately trying to hold off on this for years surely she could've found the advantage to uphold the treat longer
Kori: She is one with the most courage. I know she will find a way. But for now we must go.
She floats off the ground yet again and then takes off in the intended direction towards the city of which was where Amanda Waller still had Julie couped up
The entire time though Garfield couldn't help but to....ponder on what was happening to Raven this new bond of affection he had for her was sudden sure but he cared a little too much.
Garfield: The devils got her now.
Knocking there was nothing else to do he immediately shape shifts back into his eagle form and quickly takes off after Kori trying to catch up to her so they could get Julie back
Thing however couldn't get any more complex or difficult for SHE THAT SUFFERED MOST
Things however couldn't get any more complex or difficult for SHE THAT SUFFERED MOST
Into the darkest pits of Hell itself these hellhounds slowly and methodically crawl out of this warping portal on this rocky platform over a pit of dark mist hellfire and brimstone....
….dragging Raven out of it with them
Dragging her by the CLOAK no less
By the time they stopped they just let her recuperate and get her back up to her feet as they all snarled at her it can be safe to say they aren't fond of her
The same could be said for Raven as she gave them this stern expression on her face
Raven: Wretched beasts....I KNOW who you all serve!
All of the hounds at ONCE proceeded to pounce at her.....
....but she catches ALL OF THEM AT ONCE...
...with her telekinesis (she has that) before chuckling them all to the side
She then takes use of whatever mystic energy she was adopted with to take a large chunk out of the rocky platform she was standing on As she looks down over at the hellhounds whimpering....
….without any remorse....
….she chucks her arms at them while carrying that rock with her powers and she DROPS the rock on ALL of them....
….crushing them all.
Before she could even get a SECONDS WORTH of rest....
She hears the noise she's heard for way too long way too many times everytime she's heard it she wishes she could run away
But now there's no hope of avoiding it
She midly turns back towards that direction as the stomping increases in intensity....
….and gets louder....
….until she finally takes a long glimpse of the man - MONSTER she had hoped she'd never have to see again
Her demonic intergalactic father Trigon
It felt normal having to look at him when he was freaking 20 feet tall....but it felt awkward and rather weird when she had to talk to him when he was HER size
But Raven could see through all that even as she tried to shrug his hand off of her when he brought down her cloak
Raven: You don't deserve to call me THAT.
Trigon: Hehehehe you have your mother's strength. But just as foolish.
Raven: You destroyed my home! Murdered all my people! Did you think I wouldn't TAKE IT PERSONALLY!
Trigon: And like them you hardly understood the will of your birthright. You were made to bring forth the will of my rein upon the universe. It's easier to accept it.
Raven: I'd rather burn in the lava pit!
Outraged by Raven's resistance Trigon smacked her down
The burns from that fiery palm made Raven cry out but she glew red eyes from anger
Apparently time was also running out for her
Meanwhile back on earth Kor and Gar managed to track down Julie at an Agency facility
And wouldn't you know it both Waller and Julie were standing on the roof
Garfield soon turn back to his self when he landed and ran to Julie for a hug
Julie: I feared for you as well. Thank the lord you're safe.
Waller: Garfield? I am Amanda Waller. You--
Garfieeld: Need some help. My friend Raven was just kidnapped!
Kori: From what we had heard her conorfica is a fire demon waiting to be released to cause a....."hellish" apocalypse?
Waller: Who is this?
Another awkward moment....
Kori: Greetings Earthling. I am Koriand'r. Princess of Tamar---
Garfield: Anders. Kori Anders.
She looks at him oddly for that
Garfield: Kind of odd since we don't know about each other that much until just today. But to be fair....I can live it.
Julie: Well I must thank you.
She reached out her hand to her and....there was an obvious morbid sense of confusion for the first few seconds
But thanks to Garfield giving the seal approval...
….she shook her hand
But of course she had a tight grip.
Julie: You DON'T wanna pick a fight with this young lady.
Waller: That makes two of us.
After a brief moment of silence between the four of them....
A rumbling sound suddenly came over the surface as it rocked the epicenter that they were all on. The entire city was in utter confusion over it and the citizens who didn't want to know what was gonna happen next just ran for cover
As for the four only two of them had a brief idea on what was happening....or what would come next
She looks out towards the distance
Kori: What Raven speaks of is true.
Waller: Everyone inside. I got an idea.
(She of course has a military operation for Trigon I think she has a suit for Garfield provided by Julie of course)
Back down in the depths of Hell.....
The bloodcurdling of Raven screaming moaning and struggling in pain in agony was troubling and nauseating to hear but it only gets worse once we actually see what's happening
Trigon still in his human from has her hoisted up the air with each and every vein in her body stretched out almost contorting her body in the worst possible way in resemblance of HIS SYMBOL
A reminder that HE WAS IN CHARGE
And it appeared to have worked cause again Raven does her hardest to struggle but with her willpower fading by the second the portal continues to inch further and further open
She was seconds away from slipping deep into unconsciousness if not a coma since she barely was any means to defend herself against her own flesh and blood. The only option she had was to use her telekinesis....
…..but everytime she tried Trigon issues a counter telepathic response rendering her 100% defenseless as he finally dropped her as she landed SPLAT on that platform
As the heat of the boiling lakes of lava started to make her sweat with anxiety she barely regains her balance and suckers up to her knees looking back at her father looking like she was completely sucked of her energy
Trigon: Why do you suffer so helplessly sweet Raven? I only ask you give me what I deserve: That portal to be opened for me. Just for your dear daddy.
Raven: Over. My. Dead. BODY.
She flies straight up at him but he immediately smacks her back down adding ANOTHER burn mark to her face
And again the portal grows wider open
Trigon: Stupid girl. You really think you'll have a chance of stopping me? The defenders of Earth-realm whoever is out there on that wretched planet are nothing but mere INSECTS compared to me. I will make every single soul on your new home. Soon.....their souls will belong to Trigon.....AS WILL YOURS.
Once again Raven just shudders in disappointment and terror.
Trigon: GIVE....IN Raven....and let me through the portal. You know you don't have any say in the matter and you'd be late to stop me from doing so. You always have been....JUST LIKE YOUR MOTHER.
Raven tried to think of an alternative....
…..out of options....
…..she knew now what supposedly had to be done
Raven: I'm sorry Mother.....I failed you....
She sat down to meditate and chant
Raven: The portal shall open to evil's will. He shall rise to claim thy world. The universe will. The of mortal kind has dawned. Arise....father. Arise....TRIGON!
She let out a shriek unleashing dark power filling the room
Outside all the people of Bludhavin panicked as the skies began to burn red as did poor Azerath's
In Metropolis Nightwing Robin and Cyborg on top of Lexcorp after helping the Justice League beat the Enchantress as they saw the red cover clouds and it was slowly spreading everywhere
Robin: The hell's happening?
Nightwing: No.....we're too late!
Cutting to the portal it ripped open unleashing a streak of unholy hell fire and a demon foot stepped out and then...…
….Trigon finally enters the earth
Trigon: The earth is MINE!!!
This was devastating for Raven to go through
Raven had held onto this burden for as long as she had been alive and the fact that she was unable to prevent the one thing she was destined to stop....
…..it was just another in her long list of failures
But that didn't mean she was gonna try to prevent this the best she could
Taking a glimpse up at the portal while it was still open and seeking her chance she flies straight through it back to Earth....
….right before it closes
Back with Waller and Julie it's obvious that they caught sight of the burning ash clouds and the raining blood that formulated almost the minute that the portal was fully open. As you know Amanda Waller she was taking any chances
Within the next few minutes he had an entire army of military men and ex marines getting prepped up and up and prepared for....what is more than likely to be the final fight of their lives
And let's be honest that was the first thing running through Julie's mind as she and Waller walked Garfield and Kori to....somewhere in the building just above below her office
Julie: You practically leading those soldiers to their doomsday
Waller: I ain't proud of it Madison. But I can't take any chances. Those clouds those raindrops out there....those aren't normal....
Kori: Nothing ever is.
Waller:....and in case we're dealing with yet another Enchantress situation.....
She stops them all on in front of this vaulted door with a passcode interface system which was expected from someone like her.
After tapping in the 5-digit code password.....
…..the door opens.
Waller:.....we're gonna need another squad.
Garfield: Which is why you need me?
Waller: You....AND her.
She points to Kori
The doors revealed a suit for Beast boy and an upgrade suit for Kori
Garfield and Kori took a good look at the suits and were inspired by them
They grinned at one another
Later they suited into the new suits and officially this time....
…..Beast Boy and Starfire were born
Meanwhile the Batwing (Batman's not seen here) flew above Bludhavin and Nightwing waved and looked at the horror upon them
Robin: God....I wonder if this is how the dinosaurs died.
Cyborg: I hope we never have to find out....
Nightwing: We may soon if we don't find Garfield and the girls.
Cyborg: CHECK THAT OUT!
They looked over to see an eruption like a volcano setting off fire flew out as did hell demons terrorizing civilians
Nightwing: Just as I feared.....Raven probably couldn't fight it any longer Trigon's forced her to open the portal
Robin: So how do we stop it?
Nightwing: *Turns and faces them* Titans this is now our number one priority this could be a hellish Apocalypse and as the Titans we have to put an end to it. But first we ALL must assemble Robin you try and track down Garfield and Kori. Cyborg I need you to hack in any Waynetech satellites and locate that portal. Maybe if it's not too late we can send Trigon back with it since it let him out.
Cyborg: And you?
Nightwing: I'll look for for Raven. She may know how to reverse this and maybe the only one who can shove Trigon back where he belongs. Now....TITANS GO!
They scatter to their assignments
As for Trigon he rose up from where he came through the portal and he was giant size the three from where they were including Starfire and Beast Boy where they were too
Waller: Time is running out. You need to find your team and stop this rein.
Beast Boy: Then let's go save the world. Starfire?
Starfire: I will stand with you and the others in this Titan team Beast....Boy.
He looked right over his "Guardian Angel" who protected him for so long.
Julie: Just be careful.
He gave her a grin and formed into an eagle again and he and Starfire flew out to the dark city
Trigon however stepped forward upon the river one tap of it.....
…..TURNED THE WATER INTO BOILING LAVA!!!!
Trigon grinned as he looked at the lava and looked on to the dark city
The fiery skies were spreading a little quick it was almost across from Gotham
As Starfire and Beast Boy flew on a winged demon pounced on her from behind pulling her down
The green eagle flew down after them
Starfire: Let go of me you foul flaming Gormit!
Soon as they hit the ground Star blasted it off her then more demons came in
Beast Boy landed and brawled on the demons as an elephant as Starfire blasted star beams at them
Suddenly ten of them were knocked down by....
Robin with his staff
Starfire: Robin! You have made it...
Beast Boy: *Changes back* It's about time.
Robin: Didn't mean to bail on you guys.....the big guy in Gotham needed us in Metropolis.
Beast Boy: Did you beat the Enchantress?
Robin: Well I helped.....but yes.
Starfire: Where is Nightwing and...Syborg?
(I meant for that cause.....that's how she thinks it's pronounced)
Robin: "Syborg"? Hehe I think we'll need to help you with your alphabets too.
Beast Boy: That might have to wait.....LOOK!
They looked over to see more demons coming
The three stood in position for combat
Cyborg was on his arm computer on satellite data getting a fix on the portal till....
...a beeper came on
Cyborg: Got something.
The small screen revealed a calculating image of the portal
Cyborg: I found the portal
The good news for him: it was still open.
The bad news: it wouldn't be for long.
There's a certain timeframe that portal could be used in order to keep itself open for as it needed to until it shut itself down permanently
But luckily on the other hand he did manage to find....
EXACTLY who he was looking for
As he looks further down into the depths of the unseen horror of Hell itself.....
…...There she was
Right there crouched down and barely able to move on that same rocky platform
Thing was....after trying so hard to actually escape said portal Raven damn near tired herself out. And to make matters all the more confusing....
….she looked as if she had de-aged a few years
Whether or not this effect was permanent remained to be seen
Nightwing: Ohhhh…...Christ no.
I don't like the sound of that.
Nightwing: I KNOW THAT. But....listen Vic how long can you keep this portal open?
I doubt my tech could touch it but I could try. Why you ask?
Nightwing: Because Raven's down there. Gotta go after her.
Oh now you tell me.
Nightwing: And she's.....younger here. The process must have changed her
You tell me that too?!?!?!
Nightwing: Now's not the time Vic. I need you to go help the others I'll try to get Raven out. She's probably our only hope of stopping that thing out there.
Just hurry. I doubt you have time down there.
The transmission was cut off as Dick proceeds after Raven into the portal
Back with the demon brawls Starfire Robin and Beast Boy beated down as many demons as they can
Beast Boy shifted from animal to animal
Starfire blasted star bolts but also crushed and twisted their arms and legs with her alien strength
As for Robin from all of Batman's training he kung fu and caught his half off their balance and soon.....
…..the rest were blasted by sonic ray
Cyborg appeared with a smoking sonic cannon
Beast Boy: Nice shot dude.
Starfire: What is a "Booyah?" And where is Nightwing?
Cyborg: Out looking for Raven. We got a way to send these armartures back where they come from. But we need Raven for it.
That loud roar made them all look up where they see Trigon...…
…..on a thrown on a small isle where he sat in a new thrown
Beast Boy: I think we can use their help now.
Robin: Whoa whoa wait. What you mean by "their" and th---
A certain interception cuts off his sentence as this buffering static travels through his earpiece and he quickly taps on it
Your concern is well appreciated Robin
Hearing the familiar voice from a distance was already nerve wreaking enough but he got the feeling that it was even closer than expected
As soon as he turned around.....
……..there's an army......an entire of soldiers ex-marines and special armed forces rolling up in droves in tanks in SVU's all gathering up behind the Titans
Beast Boy: And here I thought she wouldn't stay true to her word.
Starfire: Friends of yours?
Beast Boy: More like our community services
Cyborg: An extra hand if you will.
As the entire army of soldiers just piled up behind the Titans Amanda Waller just so happened to crawl out of the top hatch of said tank before approaching the four
Robin: What do you want?
Waller: Exactly what YOU want: Safety of our city. I have absolutely NOTHING against you vigilantes but when you threaten our economy....THAT'S where I draw the line I'm NOT down for hurting the innocent.....which is why we end this as ONE.
The four Titans look at each other
Kori: So you are saying you are of help?
Robin: Not if HE has anything to say about it.
He points all the way over to Trigon who was crouched and sitting comfortably in the distance yards away from their current position on Mt Bludhaven…..yet his freakishly enormous size gave himself away
But he didn't seem to mind
Starfire: Clearly....HE is NOT friendly.
Robin: What gave you THAT idea his height or the fact that he's raining blood on us?
Cyborg: Not to mention the ashy skies.
Waller: Those are minor details at the latest. Whe--where is your leader? Batman's former pet project.
As they just talked it out while the army stood in position the monstrous Satan finally urged himself off his throne staring out into the depths of the city with all four of his eyes giving him a mass he reach in vision
When he saw the Titans.....
…..not a single word was ushered....although a sense of resentment was building
Trigon: Defenders of this realm.....you will not LAST LONG.
In the most anticlimactic manner I could think of he dips his large grotesque finger into the nearby lava river again as it slowly begins to bubble in intensity.....
….and once it finally got to it's breaking point.....
…….by the time Starfire turned back around to see the result that followed it was too little too late to prepare
Everyone turns to him
Starfire: I fear Grayson's rescuing will have to wait.
She points all the way down to every END of the road which was blocked by the highlands leading up to Trigons army of demons approached them Waller already looked ready for battle
(Monsters Vs. Aliens reference)
Waller: Commander......do something VIOLENT.
Commander: You heard the lady! LIGHT EM UP!
Just as she got cooped up back in her TANK the soldiers Obeying commands all opened fire on every single demon and hellspawn monster that was coming directly towards their direction BUT EVERYTIME those demons went down in droves the number of them seemed to only increase bit by hit slowly outnumbering the army
Starfire: We cannot let them suffer like this!
Robin: TITANS MOVE OUT!
Quickly sprinting into action the FOUR members quickly sprint across the road-turned-battlefield avoiding the bullets from their allies behind them as they systematically plowed through each and every demon coming their way in order to get to Trigon
Cyborg pulled an electrocution out with his sonic pulse gun frying about three demons surrounding him at every him at every corner
Starfire zipped back and forward between enemies kicking one demon down into the atmosphere. When one gets up behind and grabs her she bolts up and blasts another pack of them in a circular motion before elbowing the one on her back and throwing it...….
…...into Beast Boy's mouth as a giant mutated wolf. As he shrugged around with it he eventually spit the ashy demons out before pawing away at another
As for the new Boy Wonder Robin stayed on the defensive more than offensive as an entire hoard of demonic hellspawn flew at him. He spent entire time blocking them and trying to push them back with his bullet shield But seeking an opportunity he switched around and threw a few Snap-Flashes at them
One by one they all backed from him as they exploded
Having eyes in the back of his head he jumped up as another demon attempted to tackle him from behind as he stuck the staff straight through his head
Taking a front row seat to all of this action ONCE AGAIN perks a smile on top of Trigon's face. He knew WAS going to be a cakewalk despite the Titans and the military standing their ground
It was only a matter of time before he would have to step up and face them all HIMSELF.
Trigon: Foolish mortals.....I don't they seem to understand the departure of their "friend" They WILL try. If anything I am COUNTING on it. Some regiment of my daughter might yet exit......but the Raven that THEY now know is lost FOREVER.
Back down in the portal.....
…..Nightwing finally had made it through the portal
But the sight of actually being in the confines of HELL for the first time sort of spiked him out a little bit. At the same time though he's been in worse situations
Right now....all he could worry about was Raven.....
…..who just so happened to be right in front of him still crouched down on her knees until she looked to her left and saw Dick inching towards her
The sight of him confused and intimated her since she IS a child again And since her mind is re-warped and programed in the way a child normally would she of course didn't have much memory of either Dick or the rest of her allies
For Nightwing the more he stepped towards her the more he realized....she wasn't herself. So taking the soft and mild approach he took his mask off and threw it off to the other side
(Teen Titans ~ The End reference)
Raven: Who--Who are you?
Dick: Grayson. Dick Grayson's my name. There's-no need to worry ok? I'm to take you back.
Not taking that statement lightly Child Raven just stumbled up her feet and ran off leaving her blackish-purple cloak behind
He quickly picks up her cloak and chases after her
He ran down a demolished temple as she ran in fear
Nightwing: WAIT! I'M NOT GONNA HURT YOU!
He fallowed her in some cave and for a moment couldn't find her till he saw her crawl in some hole
He then tried to reach out for her
Nightwing: Please....I just want---
She suddenly kicked him in the knee dropping her cloak little Raven grabbed it and ran again jumping from pillar to pillar till she slipped and fell back down
Where Nightwing landed down beside her she backed up crawling back
Nightwing: Raven it's me. Nightwing. D-Dick. Remember?
Raven: I'm lost....
Nightwing: I know but I found you. You don't need to be afraid anymore. I can help you. But you have to let me.
He held out his hand and Raven still wasn't sure to trust him or not but she slowly took took his hand
Nightwing: We got to hurry there's not much time left
In time he carried her on his back to the portal in hopes they make it back in time
Raven: This place goes on.....
Nightwing: Then how bout a story to pass the time. This.....is the story of Raven. She was a very dear friend of mine. And she was very brave. Together we fought evil. Building a team of young heroes called "The Titans." The Titans beat monsters and villains and under the guidance of an older team of heroes called the Justice League we kept our world safe. But even though she was meant to be evil....cause not long ago she told me the story when was born her people were threaten by a greater evil and feared that someday something terrible was going to--
Just before he was half way to that statement the ground began to tumble and more fire demons BURST out of the lava of hell and attacked them
Nightwing lost his grip on the cliff he was climbing and Raven fell off of Nightwing's back and screamed
Her screams echoed as she fell deep towards the lava pit he dived down and eventually caught her and shot a grapple swinging into another cave
Raven:....Dick. Why are you doing this?
Nightwing: You....remember me?
She nodded "Yes" and looked out the cave
Raven: The story you were telling I can see it. Bits and pieces. You. Our friends. My father. Like it was a dream. A nightmare. Whatever it was.....it's over.
Nightwing: Raven. There may still be a way to---
Raven: Nobody can stop him. I remember that. You came into this world for nothing.
Nightwing: No. I came into this realm for you.
Raven: WHY?!?! I can't help! My will came from my mother but my powers came from him. And now that I done my part for him I don't have them anymore.....
Nightwing: I know it's the end of the world. But so what....it's not the first one.....Zod almost destroyed the world to re-create Krypton. Till Superman stopped him. And the first time he Batman and Wonder Woman teamed up they saved the world from a monstrous Kryptonian creature. That fight cost Sups his life.....for awhile.....then when the whole League assembled they beat Steppenwolf then the Enchantress that just happen not to long ago. And if they can do it. So can we.
Raven: Look at me Nightwing! There's nothing I can do. There isn't any hope. Not for Earth. Not for Azerath. Not for anyone.
Nightwing: Then I guess......I'll just have enough hope for the both of us. As did Arella.
Hearing the name of her mother mentioned brought a LITTLE hope for Raven and Nightwing soon carried her on his back again to make their way for the portal which was now...…
Back on the hell on earth bludhavin smirked at the four titans while Waller and her troops kept on with the demons and then.....
…..he fired his eye beams at them striking at them Robin Starfire Beast Boy and Cyborg screamed in agony which some dark winds came out of their bodies and all fell back
They looked as the smoke cleared appearing
A Dark Robin
Dark Beast Boy
And yes even a Dark Cyborg
Beast Boy: Huh....I always figured I was taller.
Trigon: *Laughs* I maybe the source of all darkness. But YOU are your own worst enemies.
And just then.....
…..The Dark Titans attack
As for the four their inner demons quickly surrounded them all like a pack of wild hybrid hyenas
Trust me they were not like civilians in a Zelda game. They did not want to talk to them. No no no.
…..and revelation made only clearer once Cyborgs inner demon got a little TOO up close and personal with him
Dark Cyborg: You know.....Raven wasn't the only one who hid a wounded heart.
Cyborg: YOU don't say.
Almost thinking simultaneously both men turned machine charged and clashed with each other in arm strength struggling for control over one another
But uh....you know that saying about fighting with your inner demons
Dark Cyborg: Seriously?
Cyborg: All's fair in love and war
Dark Cyborg: YOURS will be enough.
He headbutts him with no sign of holding back and just before the real Victor could strike again....
…..his inner demon launches him back with his Sonic Cannon.....all the way out towards the Tower and flew after him
The other three just surrounded Robin Starfire and Beast Boy before Starfire's demon took off after her forcing her to move back
Same could he said for Beast Boy and Robin
Here's the thing though
For the majority of the time the team for the VERY FIRST TIME were actually struggling against THEMSELVES out of all people because nobody can really....truly defeat their demons for they are part of them
The only one who wasn't getting in remotely much trouble was Beast Boy
He and his inner demon were evenly matched.....which was VERY ODD
With Waller and the Military....
…...they may have pride the demons on them off but it still wasn't looking good
Waller: Commander. Set all fires towards that big red demon. I want heat seeking missiles focused on it on my mark.
Commander: Yes Maim.
The tanks pointed their launchers at Trigon as he chuckled
Trigon: Foolish mortals.
Waller: On my mark. Ready? Aim...FIRE!!
They fired at him but it barely did any damage to the demon he breathed fire (He can do that) which blew half of the tanks away
Waller: Launch heat seekers!
Jets flew in launching missiles that did a little BIT better on him but hardly any severe damage Trigon shout his beams from his eyes blowing them out of the sky
Miss Waller our weapons aren't having any effect on this thing! We have to evacuate!
Waller: NO! We won't get another chance like this! Just keep pressing the attack! And God help us.
Back at the portal Nightwing and Raven made it back through in the nick of time
Nightwing: We made it....
Raven: I still don't know about this Dick....Trigon is no ordinary bad guy we faced. He's pure evil.
Nightwing: So was a man named Ra's Al Ghul.
Nightwing: He's someone my friend from Gotham faced from time to time in the past. Ra's was just beyond evil by living for six hundred years.
Raven: But this is different....
Nightwing: I'm still taking a chance.....for now the Titans need us.
Raven got the hint halfway through that she wasn't gonna convince Dick in anywa to stand down The man was too hopefully stubborn.
But that's what made him special.
Nightwing: Hey come on.
As Raven took his hand progressing further back into city with her.....
….the numbers game was getting the better of our protagonists
Apart from the regular debacle with the army struggling the four Titans were Umm....
…..conflicted if you will
To be fair though Beast Boy was still holding his ground with his doppelganger self switching and mutating back and forth between wolfs to dogs to....freaking armadillos.
At one point his cloned demon grabbed the armadillo by it's talons as it turned to a pterodactyl our of all things and flew off.
Thinking quickly though Beast Boy squirmed out of the grip and again turned into that mutant gorilla jumping on his back....
….causing his demon to change forms again this time into an elephant
As the two crashed back down to Titans Tower the elephant immediately cowered up and fell on it's back
Both Beast Boys change back almost immediately
Beast Boy: Seriously? is THAT all you got?
Not taking the response likely his doppelgänger quickly tackles him as white ape and Alma's him through the main floor of Titans Tower
Over with Robin on a rooftop above the crumbling army down below...…
….let's say he was monstrously surprised about how unmeasurably tough his inner demon was capable of being compared to himself
Compared to him his inner demon packed a sword for an accessory (nod to Damian Wayne) as he swung at him in a very crazed and uncontrollable manner. It was near miss after near miss as he continues to try and decapitate him
Funny how this represented Tim's bad side.
The real Robin stayed on the offensive for as much as he could before he finally smacked him with his staff and gutted him with his boot. Almost immediately his inner demon retaliated back with a back flip kick launching Robin square on his chest on the ground
Dark Robin: One by one....year by year they all fall. Each bird for one stone.....and for you there'll be no exception. By the way....that reminds me: doesn't ALL this worry you about your Barbara?
Soon as the real Tim heard Barbara's name involved in the conversation his eyes twitched rapidly
Dark Robin: Should I....tell Trigon where she is? Think that's a good idea?
Robin: You will do NO SUCH THING!
Robin in rage charged at his evil double
With Starfire her and her dark doppelganger were evenly matched but the evil one had most of the apprehend
They flew all over the wreckage part of the city and the skies crashing and beaming at one another
But one crash made Star fall and bounce on the ground she looked up seeing her dark half zooming at her like a missile diving down
The good Star's eyes glew green and zoomed up towards her and....
The Dark Starfire land on her feet and slid across and shot her eye beams at the real one
Starfire got clear of the smoke and the evil one grabbed her from behind
Starfire: *Struggles* You remind me of our sister!
Dark Starfire: I will choose to take that as a compliment. Realize with you gone Tameran will be ALL mine!
Starfire: RRRR IT WILL....NOT!
She flipped up and slung her down
So far the doubles were still outmatched but.....the dark titans had beaten their real half's to a pulp
Cyborg's systems were staring to crash Beast Boy was nearly getting eaten alive Robin was getting kicked around like he's being bullied in school and Starfire was getting beamed at everywhere and soon...…
…...the young heroes were down
Dark Cyborg: Booyah.
Dark Beast Boy: What's the matter had enough?
Dark Robin: Awe did I hurt your feelings?
Dark Starfire: You do not even belong in this world.
Beast Boy: Dude....I had no idea I was that tough...
Robin: You're tough? I'm a lot stronger than what Batman taught me.
Cyborg: Yall are not. I can kick both your asses any day of the--
That just stopped them ALL there for all the Titans had the same idea
Starfire: If we cannot defeat ourselves.....perhaps we can defeat each other
The Dark Titans surrounded the real ones and suddenly.....
Boys: *High fiving* SWITCH!!
Starfire attacked the Dark Cyborg as Beast Boy attacked Dark Robin Robin lunges at Dark Starfire and Cyborg cracked his knuckles at Beast Boy
Beast Boy suffocated Dark Robin as an Octopus Cyborg beat up Dark Beast Boy like a bully to a kid Robin countered every move Dark Starfire made and knocked her off balance with his staff and Starfire tore Dark Cyborg to pieces
In time the Dark Titans and all changed back to beams back in their own doppelgangers
Cyborg: Told ya I can kick your butt
Nice work team!
That voice made them turn and it was Nightwing carrying little Raven
Cyborg: Well it's about time.
Beast Boy: Is that---
Nightwing: Raven. She's changed somehow.....but I think we can get her back to normal if we can somehow defeat Trigon. And as The Titans we---
Beast Boy: Teen.
Beast Boy: I tried to say this before How bout as The "Teen" Titans
That title had everyone in silenced and for some reason.....they smiled for it had a nice ring to it.....the "Teen Titans."
Nightwing: I kinda like that better.
Cyborg: Me too!
Robin: Me three!
Beast Boy: Me four!
Starfire: Uhhh….I am in like of it as well?
Nightwing: I'll help you with that one day.
They heard stomps and saw Trigon coming the tank Waller is in
And Nightwing put Raven down and......the Newly named "Teen Titans" Stand together assembled
Cause when there's trouble....
….you know who to call....
Before they got the chance to fully go forward into battle Dick had to tell Raven ONCE again how there's still hope left over for them.
She looks down at first but Dick inches her head up so she could look at him
Nightwing: I understand how you feel right now....cause....*Chuckles* if I'm gonna be honest I'm feeling the same way
Raven: Then why can't you run? From all of this?
Nightwing: I've learnt from the best.....and trust me when I tell you: everyone deserves a true beginning to their story. Well......this YOUR story we're in right now. But when the time is right.....you'll know what to do.
Raven: Are you sure?
Nightwing: All in good time......all in good time.
Beast Boy: INCOMING!
Out of nowhere Trigon suddenly threw the tank directly down at the Titans as Waller buckled inside of it back and forth like a ricocheting pinball
However as luck would have it.....
….Starfire flew up and grabbed the tank just seconds before it would hit the concrete and seeing nowhere else to place it she flew the tank onto the nearest building she could find and placed her there
Robin: Well....that was easy.
Beast Boy: Well that leaves these guys out the equation.
As she landed down they all turn back around towards the rest of the militia
Nightwing: You guys have done your job well. No more lives should be wasted here; call in a full retreat.
Someone seeing how the Titans were in the right in this the Commander did what he was told....
...and all of them back
Leaving the Teen Titans and Trigon to face other...
….all while Raven and Waller watched from afar
Trigon: What's strange vermin cowards beneath my rocks.
The Titans pressed on to attack
Trigon: I have injured your existence long enough!
Nightwing: TITANS GO!
Cyborg: CYBORG! *Fires sonic ray*
The ray blasted in his eyes blinding Trigon for a short while
Beast Boy: BEAST BOY! *Changes into Garzilla again*
Garzilla brawled on Trigon while he's still blind pinning him down
She blast a star beam right at his head
He planted red bird detonators on his left arm exploding stinging Trigon like bees
He powered his shock sticks shocking him....
…..only they felt like wasp stings to him
He forced them all back even Garzilla changing back to Beast Boy
But they kept on attacking only....
….it seems every attack the heroes inflicted on him was actually hurting him was roaring agony
Raven: I don't believe it....
Waller: Believe it?
Raven: They're....hurting him....
Waller: What you don't have faith in your friends?
Raven: It's not that....I don't think anything could hurt him....
The blows nearly forced him into the lava but Trigon snapped inside he wasn't having it anymore!
He blasted his eye beams forcing the titans away and nearly burnt them
Waller: Son of a b**ch.….
The Titans were down for the count as Trigon laughed manically
Raven ran to their aid mostly to Nightwing
Raven: Get up! Dick please get up!
Trigon: Did you think....your puny human protectors would make a difference? Arella was just that foolish.....as are you. Farewell dear daughter.
He blasted at her she turned away then suddenly.....
….everything was blank.....
…...woke up back in the ruins Azerath
There there my child.
She looked over to see....
….Arella appearing before her
Raven: *Gasps* MOTHER!
She ran grabbing her in a tight hug
Raven: I thought I lost you forever....
Arella: My child.....I never left you. Neither did our people.
Raven: I'm sorry....I failed you. I failed our people. I failed my friends on earth.....I couldn't stop him from coming back....
Arella: Of course you couldn't my dearest Raven. No one could. But we didn't sent you to earth to contain him. We knew it was a matter of time before he rose.
Raven: Then--what was the point of sending me there in the first place?
Arella: You were born from both sides Rachel. From light and darkness......and the darkness is what fuels Trigon is power. The light....takes it away his power.
Raven: But I can't do it alone....
She faced down just for Arella to lift her face back up
Arella: My child....you are never alone.
Raven looked up at her mother tearing up and then slowly.....
….the screen light up in blank.....
...till cutting back to the present where Trigon kept blasting her but when he stopped he only saw Raven protected by the light of her powers shielding her
Trigon: You may retain some trace of my power. But you are still no threat to me little girl! I am your creator! Your master! You exist only to serve ME! You survive ONLY cause I ALLOW it! What can a mere child have on defeating her own powerful FATHER!
Just hearing that....
….made Raven look angry with her eyes glowing white the light of her powers as her mother explained was growing stronger
This made Trigon back up a bit
Raven: You may have created me....but so did....my mother.
The light shinned as she matured back to her normal age
Her hair was longer and Waller was beyond surprised of this
Raven: And you....were NEVER my father!
She blasted him and time....
….the light energy burned him like acid he roared in pain
The titans even awoke just in time to catch the action
(Samurai Jack season 5 reference)
Trigon: HOW DARE YOU TALK BACK TO YOUR FATHER!
Raven: You are NOT my father!
Trigon: Yes I am!
Raven: NO YOU'RE NOT!
She blasts him again hurting him worse
The Teen Titans even Waller stood there watching in shock
Raven: Father's are KIND! *Blasts him again* Father's protect YOU! *Again* Father's raise YOU! *And again* I was protected by Arella. The Empress of Azerath. I was raised by my friends!
The light powers were too much for Trigon he yelled while dropping on his knees it was draining him from his power
Raven: THEY are my family. THIS is my home! And YOU ARE NOT WELCOMED HERE! Azerath. Nitrian. ZINTHOS!
The force of her light magic created a beam image of a Raven (The Bird) it shinned so bright Trigon screamed as he was caught in it and melted his flesh off his bones and.....BLOWN TO DUST!
…..his remains formed into a single red gem which LATCHED on to Raven's forehead
The light even spread across all over Bludhavin and where the burning skies was spread to.....
…..it changed EVERYTHING BACK TO NORMAL!
People were alive rivers were gloomy and the sun once more as if NOTHING really happened
The Earth was SAVED!
The immortal had fallen
Trigon....was no more
At least Raven hoped for whatever the jewel meant all more reason to keep it safe
All five remaining members of the team including Waller all had their mouth left wide open in unison for they were completely dumbfounded and perplexed by the amazing act of heroism show on display by Raven
All that could see was Raven still carrying herself 20 to 30 ft in the air with her eyes closed.....
…..sporting a new white cloak around her
Robin: Son Of a gun
Suddenly after holding her position for another few good second Raven suddenly broke free of her state drained her energy.....
…..and with no control she went into free-fall pummeling faster and faster and faster down towards the ground no control of herself
Cyborg: S__t…..she's not slowing down.
He quickly loosened up his jet-pack in case he HAS to go up and catch her.....
...but Beast Boy was already on that.
Out of nowhere his green mutated ape form jumps out of nowhere as he catches Raven in time scraping alongside the building before jumping down with her
As he places her down and changes back the others quick to gather around her
Starfire: Is she the breathing?
Cyborg: Can't tell.
Beast Boy: What's that thing on her head?
Robin: Not sure.
Robin just reached for it but Cyborg grabbed his hand
Cyborg: Stop! Something tells me we shouldn't touch that thing. Otherwise this whole mess will start all over again.
Waller: Besides the point she must've wasted all her energy from that attack
Robin: Like THAT wasn't obvious.
Out of all the others Nightwing was the one who got comfortable enough to hold Raven in his arms
After whispering in her ears...…
…..Mere seconds later she's quick to move in his arms waking up to the sight of the others crowded around her
They help her up
Waller: Uhh I---How did you---
Raven: Only way to kill a shadow.....is to shine a little light in its way.
Cyborg: You--you did more than shine a little light you completely annihilated him. Tha-that's uncharacteristically....smirks....
…..before she goes up and.....HUGS NIGHTWING?
Raven: Somebody believed
Nightwing: Welcome back.
Beast Boy: OK! I know we just met not long ago but I know that white robe and smile are weird enough! But HUGS?!?! Are you....YOU??? Are you still.....YOU????
Raven: Blue is my color and don't get use to the smile. I still think you're creepy. The lullaby was just a strategy. And you're not funny.
Beast Boy stood in silence till....
…..HE grabbed her in a TIGHT hug!
Beast Boy: RAVEN!!
(LOL! I love that part)
Cutting to the next day
(Another Avengers reference)
news reports were showed on every channel
Reporter: Despite the devastations that occurred late last night these young heroes these so called Teen Titans had prevented the devastation.
Man: It just feels great you know. That someone's out there watching over us.
Second Man: Idk I like the Justice League better. They been around longer. And they're much older. These Titans people are just kids.
Boy: The robot guy was like "Zap! Zap!" and the red haired girl was all "Beam! Beam!"
Teenage girl: WE LOVE ROBIN!
Teenage boy: I don't know.....I think that Raven chick is hotter. She kicked that demon's ass.
Third man: I don't know....I mean aren't these so called Titans just as responsible?
Fourth Man: Superheroes in Bludhavin? Giving me a brake.
Woman: What that this is somehow their fault? Before the others showed up Nightwing saved my life 2 years ago. Wherever he is.....and wherever any of them are I just.....wanna say thank you.
Cutting to an Agency facility
Councilor # 1: Where are the Teen Titans?
Waller: I'm not currently tracking their where abouts. I say they earned to leave an absences.
Councilor # 2: And the mutant boy?
Cutting to Julie arriving to pick up Garfield from Titan's tower he ran to his Angel hugging her
Garfield Lens is secured where he really need to be. Out of reach
Councilor: That's not your call.
Waller: That's because I didn't make it. I just didn't argue with the man that did.
Also arriving at Titans tower to pick up Tim was Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) (Just in this scene)
Tim shook hands with Victor and Dick as Bruce nodded to them
So you let Wayne take charge of this. Just when you told us he was the Batman.
I was wrong. First time I ever was.
And what of the demonic girl who should answer for unleashing that hell on earth.
She wasn't given the choice.
As for Kori she was packing her ship to leave back for Tameran Dick didn't want her to go to go...…
….and neither part of her....cause of how she was starting to feel for him....
….made her promise him she'd return one day she only has to return to insure her people know she escaped after being captured before
Kori did give Dick a kiss on the forehead before leaving making his face turn bright red
And soon her ship took off
I don't think you understand what you just started. The Justice League is one thing but a team of super powered teenagers...letting the Teen Titans loose on this world. They're dangerous.
They surely are.
Victor left back to the hall of Justice in Metropolis as Dick and Raven were the only ones who stayed behind to finish the Titans or should I say.....the Teen Titans program
And the world knows it.
Waller: Every world knows it.
Councilor # 1: Is that the point of all this? A statement?
Later Nightwing was riding on his bike on a rainy night on Bludhavin with a smirk on his face
The screen cuts off as Waller walked out to the main hall of the Agency HQ
Man: Maim how does it work now? They gone their ways. We get into a situation like this again what happens then?
Waller: They'll come back. They're the second front as the Justice League are the first.
Man: You really sure about that?
Waller: I am.
Waller: Because we'll need them to. With the suicide squad shut down....the Teen Titans....maybe our only defense.....if the unthinkable happens.
The man nodded and walked away as Waller looked out the window
At Titans tower Raven on the roof again looked out to sun feeling for the first time in her life....
In some hidden office Deathstroke was arranging a deal with someone behind the desk
Deathstroke: So....ten on Gotham and another on Bludhavin?
Deathstroke: And this is just a militia operation more like a terrorist act on me. And my service doesn't come cheap.
Don't worry. You will be handsomely paid. I just need you to guarantee me your trust.
Deathstroke: Trust earns both ways.
And trust me.
The camera turns directly to the other side of the desk revealing.....
Red Hood (???): I learned THAT the hard way.
Deathstroke: Yet you leave that to yourself. Why is that?
Red Hood: My reasons are my own. *Stands* Now.....how bout this girl you told me about?
Deathstroke: *Stands* Very well.
He lead him to a hall of cells and showed him....
…..a power blond girl moving ground object but not enough to brake out her name.....
…..was Terra (Mackenzie Foy)
