I do not own Justice League. Set after Justice league unlimited
The Justice League had been getting reports of weird sightings near the back alleys of New York City. They had sent out the recently married Black Canary and Green Arrow to investigate. The were in Green Arrows car. The sun was just setting over the horizon.
"Ollie why couldn't we have taken my bike?"ask Canary.
"Because I'm not in the mood to sit on the back of you bike,"he said.
"I still have a bruise from falling off it last week and I still really hate it." Canary giggled remembering the incident. They were going to a motel after the wedding. She started the bike up and he lost his balance and slipped off. Luckily he only got a nasty bruise,a sore but, and wounded pride.
"It's not funny,"he said shifting in his seat and wincing. Which only made her laugh even more.
"Don't worry I still find you cute,"she said kissing him on the cheek. They pulled up to an abandon old apartment building. The last place the thing was reported to be seen.
"What is this thing look like any way,"asked Carney.
"Bird like. People have said they saw what look like a bird but with a human face,"he answered
"Well I can't say I haven't seen or heard of stranger things." They walked into the building. She got he flash light out and turned it on. It seemed deserted. The moon shone through the broken windows giving it a ghostly feel. They walked up and down the stairs and explored the old apartments. They were about to give up when Green Arrow heard a loud creaking coming from the floor above. He out a finger to his lips and pointed up. He prepared an arrow to be shot. Canary slowly opened the door to the next flight off stairs. The creature up the stairs. The got to the next floor and it was the same as the others. A long hallway with two rows of doors and deserted.
"I could have sworn I heard something,"he said. Then a large feathery creature fell through the ceiling and ran for the door that led to the lower floor. Green Arrow shot a low charged energy arrow at it. It hit him square in the back. It fell. The two league members ran up to the creature. Canary and Green Arrow knelt down by it. It moaned and the pushed them away with what felt like wings and ran out the door that led up stairs instead. They ran after it. This floor was like an huge attic filled with old worn left behind furniture,cleaning utensils and a rusted bucket.
"Were are you we know your here,"called out Carney.
"Dinah I don't think a creature will listen to you,"said Green Arrow.
"How do you know this creature doesn't have a mind just like yours,"said low male voice from the shadows,"Leave I done nothing to you." Green Arrow could tell it was coming from the far right corner that was completely encased in shadows. He pointed a few higher charged energy arrows at that corner,"Now come out or I'll shout you. I promise this one will hurt more than the last one." It leaped out to attack him but he shot him with the arrows in the stomach and the chest. It fell to the floor clutching his stomach and breathing in gasps. She shined her flash light on it. It was a teenage boy,looked about thirteen,with dark brown skin. In random spots he had brownish owl like feathers in others he had regular human hair. On his head in place of hair was the same feather slicked back. His eyes were larger and were brownish yellow. His head was slightly bigger to. The saw on his finger there was bird like talons. His feet were a cross between bird and human and also had talons for nails. He also had a pair of giant wings. His arm were attach to the elbow but the rest of the arm seemed elongated a bit. On the back of his neck he had a tattoo that was JX-23
"Well if your not a creature whats you name,"ask Green Arrow.
There had been stories of a girl who heard voices but from her daily diary entries that they made her write and their logs about her. The voices seem to be from more than insanity. J'onn was being lead by a middle age man through the halls of the Dillingham Insane Asylum.
"She says says she hears voices that tell her things about people,"he said,"I'm Mrs. Dalton by the way." She then opened a door and said,"Jen you have a visitor." She let J'onn in and left the room and closed the door behind her. She watched through the window on the door. The room was the size of a small bed room. It had one plain bed,various books and papers littered the ground. The walls were covered in dry ease boards and had math problems and random words written on it. A seventeen year old girl sat in the corner of the room she was in street cloths. She had black hair that went to he knees and her eyes were red and her pupils were barely even there. Her skin was pale had a slight green tint to it.
"I'm Martin Man Hunter. I am part of the Justice League. You can call me J'onn,"he said kneeling in front of her. She didn't say any thing. He usually wouldn't have done this but he thought the time called for it.
'Jen I believe you have a power called telepathy. I am willing to help you learn to control it,'he thought to her. Her eyes began to glow then she held her head and started screaming.
"Shut up shut up go away,"she screamed over and over. J'onn entered her mind again. It was a jumble of thoughts from other people and her own.
'Concentrate Jen do not let these thoughts over run you. Push them out. You are in control,'he thought to her. She concentrated had the voices faded away.
'I've never been able to do that before. They went away,'she thought.
'Jen these voices are other peoples thoughts. I can help you control this power. So do you want to come with me to the watch tower,'thought J'onn.
"Yes Yes Yes! Any thing to get out of here,"she said and began to pack. As her left to sign the discharge papers he looked back and saw tattooed on the back of her neck JX-16.
Aquaman was walking into a indoor pool. There had weird sighting of a weird humanoid fish creature living in the pool. There had been so many sightings that they had to close the pool tell they found the monster or disproved it. He was about to walk through when a short,young,blond woman with a broom stopped him.
"I'm sorry but you can't go in there it's closed,"she said.
"I'm here to investigate the monster sightings,"he said.
"Well there's isn't one so will you please leave,"she said turning him around then trying to push him away with no success. He then opened the door and started to walk in but the woman hit him in the head and yelled,"Naida run! Get away." He heard a loud splash. He pushed the woman away put she grabbed his hair and pulled.
"Leave her alone she didn't do any thing wrong." He got away and plunged into the pool. The chlorine burned his lungs. He wasn't terrible but it was uncomfortable. In saw a grate was a little off it's hinges . He went to it and pulled it the rest of the way off. He couldn't fit through. He saw a foot. He took a hold of it and pulled the creature out then grabbed its' wrist. What he saw shocked him. It was what appeared to be a fourteen year old girl. Her body ,human looking, was mostly covered with sliver fish scales. Her hair was short and sliver. Her feet were like flippers and she had webbed fingers. Her teeth were like shark teeth. Her nose was just two slits where a nose should be. On her neck were gills. She had on a one piece bathing suit. She looked at him in fear in her eyes. She looked like was weak and tired and she seemed to be coughing. The chlorine. It must be making her sick. She fainted. He pulled her out of the water with him.
"Naida. What did you do to her,"said the girl.
"I didn't do any thing the chlorine made her sick since her lungs aren't fully developed,"he said mostly guessing. The then they took her to the showers and ran the water over head and gills.
"Would you please explaining this,"asked Aquaman.
"Well I don't know why she's like this but I found her when she was a baby in a lake that was behind this place. She came in here to visit me. I thought she would be OK in the pool. Her name is Naida mine is Mary. She can only go a half an hour before she has to go back in the water,"said Mary. He called the League and the came to pick him up and the fish girl. When he looked at the back of her neck he saw JX-50
