in Ocean Master: Year of the Villain
New the Batman movie this, new the Batman movie that - everyone acts like the greatest piece of Batman related media had not been created YEARS ago by kids on tumblr
Metropolis, on average, is likely to have much higher than average rent than Gotham. Reporters, non tv ones esp., don’t get paid that much these days with the gradual decline of print media. Probably lower than average for someone aiming to keep a low profile.
My point is, that rent in metropolis sucks ass and Clark just starting at the daily planet and running off to be superman all the time, is just. having an awful fucking time, because to be superman he can’t have roommates. He probably ends up doing some part time jobs with odd hours to keep his secret.
And most people also don’t know that superman HAS a secret identity in the early days and think he just. full time lives at the north pole.
So when the jla starts, no one KNOWS he has secret identity and Clark isn’t particularly keen on exposing it so he just. keeps coming up with bullshit ass excuses why he is randomly offline sometimes.
FLASH : Hey supes, why weren’t you at the meeting yesterday-
GREEN LANTERN : Got a hot date?
CLARK : I was, uh. Preparing for my hibernation.
AQUAMAN : Your fucking WHAT
MARTIAN MANHUNTER, FULLY AWARE THAT CLARK IS MAKING BULLSHIT UP : Many species do such things-
FLASH : Alien species??
WONDER WOMAN, ASLO AWARE THAT HE’S LYING : Flash, Kal is also an alien, no matter how similar to humans he may look.
WONDER WOMAN : Kal, If there is anything we can do to assist-
CLARK : No, No, No it’s, it’s fine, it’s not a big deal-
BATMAN, AWARE OF HIS SECRET IDENTITY : It IS a big deal, superman. If one of our strongest is to be out of commission for an extended period of time-
CLARK : Oh, I won’t- We, we do it in shifts.
WONDER WOMAN : Is that so, Kal?
CLARK : Yeah, h. haha.
Smash cut to a few years later-
KARA : YOU TOLD THEM WE DO WHAT
CLARK : I PANICKED OK?
Diana and Bruce never let him live this down btw.
Bruce Wayne having to play Fuck, Marry, Kill on a talkshow, except all the options are JL members.
Are you fucking telling me we lost geralt and we don't even FUCKING GET SUPERMAN
I have lots of ideas for prompts. LOTS OF IDEAS.
Like John Constantine dragging Jack and Maddie by the ear into the infinite realms to personally apologize to the High King of it for literal war crimes.
Meanwhile Danny is panicking, cuz he works regularly with the League ever since Tucker found out Vlad was what was stopping them from receiving any of Amity's distress signals and bricked literally all of the stalkers electronics, and they just hashed out a working relationship, and he Does Not Want them to find out he's the King. What if Wonderwoman and Aquaman try to talk to him about politics?! He doesn't actually know what he's doing he just managed to appear competent!
So his first true edict as King, the first thing he does using all of his powers at his disposal to forcibly order Ghosts what to do, is to pretend that Skulker is the High King. He looks intimidating, right?
Skulker despises every second of it. He hates lying about a conquest, it makes him testy and irritable.
His irritability makes John be like "I was right the King is terrifying fuck".
The other Ghosts are just avoiding it, desperately pretending that they can't see Skulker.
Johnny and Kitty keep breaking down into laughter and are deliberately watching from the side lines, having come to watch the spectacle.
Phantom is crying inside watching Skulker try to pretend like he's courtly. Wonderwoman and Aquaman suspect that something is going on but the cultures in the Infinite realms are so different they don't know For Sure. Batman figured it out pretty much the second they met Skulker and is just. Staring. At Danny.
never seen someone so excited to be rained on
Dc x dp idea 11
More of a funny shenanigans one.
Danny has been chasing his rouges all throughout the country. Whatever city he is in some form of shenanigans occur. Due to the GIW he decided to do it human. He has his parents travel devices and inventions so it will be easy peasy.
Metropolis he steals some kryptonite and feeds it to cujo. Obviously cujo is coming as a guard dog. Danny can’t control him plus the dog could smell the ecto candy. Danny is munching some as well all while he soups whichever rouge it is.
Central city he bugs the flash about how he could mess with the flow of time. He thinks it’s cool and clockwork allows it cause it’s funny. (Clockwork let’s ppl figure out not to mess with time themselves. Danny leaned when vlad ended up with his mom and jack had ecto acne flash would figure it out) But he just tells it to Barry no care that he isn’t in costume.
Runs into wonder woman and is just an absolutely fanboy. Gushing. About everything she’s done. He drops knowledge about feats he shouldn’t know cause pandora told him stories about her.
Runs into Constantine and just praises him for his soul selling. It’s just chaos whenever the ghost council meets. Danny is a gremlin he got in a prank war with vlad he absolutely would think it’s hilarious. He knows a few beings who bought his soul as well and name drops them.
Youngblood wants to do an underwater adventure. He’s been a cowboy and pirate so why not underwater diver. So now Danny is in the ocean dealing with an enemy aqua man can’t see. Aqua lad is just describing Youngblood with googles on. Danny has a fenton work product letting him dive in the sea. Anything with Youngblood is a shenanigans enough said.
In Gotham he wasn’t expecting a not quite a halfa, red hood. Now when his rouge goes to cause property damage he goes to soup them. It sucks in red hood. Danny didn’t want red hood soup.
Danny then panics trying to release the thermos. All while the batfam are watching the exchange. Danny is frantically apologizing and just failing to open it.
By the time he gets it open he is just embarrassed. His rouge is free and took off. So Danny goes invisible forgetting he was supposed to act human and pretends it never happened.
The next justice league would be hilarious
in Aquaman (2016) #10
Au where Instead of Batman adopting Danny it’s Aquaman being a feral parent.
Like Arthur Curry would 100% see this dead child in line for the infinite realms throne and be like “that is mine thanks I’ll mentor him well” to “the government is treating your kind like how they treated my kind and I know just how to solve the problem.”
Cue the entire Justice League tackling Arthur so he can’t go murder the president while Batman explains to the media and government officials that if someone doesn’t get rid of the anti-ecto acts then they are going to be at war with the Antlantian People and the Justice League won’t be able to help them because the anti-ecto acts are a direct violation of what the Justice League stands for.
Danny would just be so confused but also just very content that the GIW are gone and that the ghost hunters who show up just get arrested immediately. He’d be completely oblivious of the fact that the nice hero he met that one time has practically decided that he is his child and would just have no clue about the amount of damage control the Justice League has to do so that Aquaman doesn’t outright start murdering people.
How did Phantom meet Aquaman?
Topo the Ectopus.
That’s how they met. For those of you who haven’t read the comics Topo was Aquaman’s sidekick.
His Octopus sidekick.
Topo was also a down right menace and I have no doubt that Topo would lead Danny on a merry chase all the way to Atlantis if that is what it took to get Danny and Arthur in the same room.
I find so much joy in the fact that this undead octopus would take one look at this undead child and be like “you need a parent don’t worry I know just the right guy for the job”.
So Aquaman’s bestie who he believed he’d never see again just shows up and is like I brought you a child, he is a good child :) .
Arthur would straight up break down and simultaneously swear on his life that he’s going to be the most loving parent to ever parent so his friend doesn’t have to worry. Danny would be confused cause “oh i guess he was your friend and wanted to come see you my bad I’ll go now nice to meet you underwater dude” and just have no context as to why this Atlantian is suddenly giving him advice and letting him know that he’ll come visit and that if he ever needs a place to go that he could come to Atlantis (Danny appreciates it cause honestly he’s had a really rough go at things lately and it’s very nice to just have someone just be really kind for once).
Thus starts the relationship of:
Phantom: this is my adult emotional-support-hero. He is my friend and role model
Aquaman: if you even look at my child I’ll drown you and no one will find your body
Their dynamic would be amazing and fit so well together. Way better then any of the other heroes just in terms of behaviour, situation, power-set, and experience.
