STOP! DO NOT READ THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THESE:
now that you have read this, you may continue It was almost too easy for Luthor's men to pick up Maxwell Lord from Metropolis' prison. After escaping from it, Luthor had picked up a tag team and found Lord in the middle of an seizure. All the while, while being transported to Luthor's lab, he was screaming. Even when they examined him.
Ultimate Superman #3: Part One: Team Up
"IT"S REAL!" "DOOMSDAY! REAL ENDLESS CARNAGE! KRYPTONIAN HATE! KILL EVERYONE." Luthor extraceted the information he needed from Lord's mind. Nevertheless, he let him come with him to the middle of the desert .
"HERE!" shouted Lord. "IT"S HERE!" Maxwell Lord dug frantically at the ground. Luckily, Luthor had just the thing. He pulled out an electronic device, placed it on the ground, and pressed a button. "Step back, Mr. Lord." Luthor said, dragging him away. In an explosion, a relativley small crater was in the ground, and Luthor and Lord climbed down through it. The deeper into the ground they went, the farther it expaned, until it was about the sixe of a room.
That's when they say it.
A ship. Alien in source, with markings all over. it. Luthor, being the power hungry man he was, pressed the button in the middle of the writing. Maxwell Lord screamed, in pain, and fell over, dead from a stroke.
Luthor backed away from a hulking monster, glowing red eyes, grey skin, and what appeared to be an exoskeleton. The monser raised his fist and--"
"WAIT." shouted a monotone voice. Luthor saw a robot come out of the ship's hull. "I am Braniac, I. sense...int.ell.igence, from this flab.by creature. the monster stopped. and backed down. "Good, Dooms.day." said the robot. "We. May. Need. This. Thing." The robot touched a stone cold hand to Luthor's temple, and he reeled over in pain. The process had begun. "Dooms.day" the robot said "Keep. The. Kryp.Ton.Ian. wait.ing. We. Maaaay!" His voice crescendoed, as Luhthor and the robot began to speak as one "Need to keep him busy, so we. Braniac and Luthor, may begin our plans. The mental bond is almost complete.
It's hard to believe how far I've come. From facing Zod and his ilk, to Maxwell Lord, to the new 'Justice League" I helped found, I've come a long way down the line. A long way.
I hear something. Someone screaming. I notice something getting closer. A giant monster! He lands on me.....everything....dizzy. Damn he's powerful. "Mmmmm nummmmes Duuummmsdyyyy. u soopermn. me klll u." The voice is gravel as you back out of the driveway. The monster clearly doesn't adjust to English well. I scan for DNA. None. This monster isn't human. He picks me up, his hand covering my face. I burn through it, and he screams in pain. There's a hole in his hand. "Let's take this fight somewhere else." I say. I pick him up and fy him to the nearest deserted place I can find, We battle there. His strength exceeds my own, but I have a wider variety of powers. He cuts me, and for one of the first times in my life, I see my own blood. I use my breath to blow him miles away. When I catch up to him, he seems to be panting. "Dyyyy alrydyyyyyyy." Suddenly a red and blue blur comes across the horizon, and slams into Doomsday.
It's Kara! "Sorry I'm late." She says. Took a while for school to get out. Secret Identities are such a pain." I smile. We go into battle together. Not a minute later I hear two voices speaking together. "Threat assessed. Fall back Doomsday." This...Doomsday creature does exactly as told and retreats. Eventually, there's no sign of him. Not even a heartbeat.
The Braniac/Lex hybrid watches out the window. Doomsday returns. They communicate telepathically. What did you learn? He has loved ones. He saved innocents. One named 'Supergirl helps him. Then it is settled. We shall attack him....
....through the people he loves.
