A man sits in a small dark room humming to himself with a frown across his face .

the door that lays before him opens and a man step out .

the man lets out a light smile before he sits on the other side of the 1st man .

" well well Mr Merkel " the man says with a grin " my name is Jim Corrigan and it so nice to meet you in the flesh " .

" i know who you are" Merkel says " your that tec with the rich bitch for a girl " he giggles.

Corrigan ignores the insult " so you have quite the job don't you , i didn't think that you would ever be took down but here you are " he says.

" yeah and i wouldn't have been if it weren't for that fucker in the gas-mask " Merkel says .

Corrigan bursts in to laughter " haha you mean you expect me to believe that the sandman came for you "

" oh i wouldn't be saying that if i were you " Merkel says " hes very real and he has eyes as black as the night sky " .

" yeah right " Corrigan says dusting down his short black hair " oh yeah and next you will be telling me that a guy will dress up as a bat 25 years from now"

" oh fu-" Merkel is cut off as two men drag him to his cell " you and Swift should start a club " Corrigan yells .

Corrigan smiles and picks up his phone and dills the number of his best friend and childhood crush Dinah Drake.

" hello ? " Dinah asks " is this Jim ?" she asks nicely with a slight Irish hint to her voice .

" yup that's me " Corrigan says " i was going to ask if you would like to come with me and the wife to the boxing match tonight "

" sure i would love to " , " we could ask Wesley to come too " she says.

" that would be nice " Corrigan says " the three of us were so close in high school ".

" yup i allways found it cute that both of you had a thing for me" she giggles.

" anyway i got to go bye " Corrigan says kindly with a blush on his face .

" bye " Dinah says then she makes a kissing sound and hangs up.

meanwhile ...

a thug runs down into the dark city with sweat running down his face .

but he looks up to see a man in a gasmask and hat stares down at him from the roof top above .

" oh go-" he says as a gas ball hits the floor and blows up .

the man in the mask picks up the body and ties it up for the cops .

" happy dreaming " he says to the body .

he runs home and unmasks .

He puts on his casual cloves and runs to the boxing match that he was invited to .

[ At the boxing match ]

The three long time friends standout out side the boxing ring as they look out for Wesley Dodds .

Once Wesley gets to them they all sit down and watch as the main event steps on the ring .

" Ted's is the master at this " one man says .

" Yeah he could kick anyones ass " a woman says .

As the four watch Ted grant fight his way to the top Dinah moves her head in to Wesley 's chest and smiles.

meanwile..

In a dark room a man looks at the screen that lays before him and smiles .

" When the sky turns purple " he says to himself " when the sky turns purple"

He says as the screen shows four men that have been chosen for his plans.

@andrewtheking: Ok. firstly, censor the curses since you're pretty cool and I don't want to see you banned.

Nice story, even though I'm not entirely sure what's happening, though that could be to the amount I've drunk rather than the actual story.

Nice indeed. I like the mixed modern age and golden age feel.
