Reunion || darknightlegend

Zatanna didnt know what she was doing her. How many invitations to Charity events and other grand Galas had Bruce (Or more likely Alfred) sent her? Dozens? All ignored and assumed to be desired so. The Bat and the Magican hadnt seen each other in years. They had both made their decisions and gone on their own paths.

It wasnt like he trusted her. He made that clear a few times. What had caused her to finally decided to attend the Gala? She peered over the invitation over and over again before deciding. It was the glitter. She loved glitter. Zee chuckled at herself as the limo pulled up to the location. The driver got out and opened the door for her. She slid out of the car, planting her heels on the ground and standing, allowing her shiny black dress to flow freely. A contraption most girls wouldnt dare wear… but Zatanna was… well… she was Zatanna… nothign really worried her.

She walked into the hall, smiling at a few familiar faces as she entered. None of them actually came over for a greeting… but Zatanna expected as much. She made her way over to the bar and got a glass of wine. People were quietly chattering to each other as she felt a presence next to her. Out of the corner of her eye, she noticed the Bat, all dressed down in the usual tux and even more usual brood. “Hey there, handsome.”

If DC decided to reboot Batman-Talia story arc, which writer should have the priority?

Hm! Difficult question. If we go with writers that are on the scene right now, I would be most optimistic about Peter J. Tomasi or Gail Simone.

Tomasi because he already knows that fans are unhappy with the direction Morrison took Talia, and actively did some damage control with Batman and Robin #0. That was one of the best modern portrayals of Talia in my opinion - she was still unrelenting, but we saw a ton of sentimentality in her - both in how she spoke to Damian and in the act of keeping a cape and cowl in what much be her hope chest. Not to mention that the recent Batman and Robin #18 was not only one of the best comics to come out of the New 52, but one of the most moving and emotionally resonant. And that’s hard when you’re telling a story without words. Tomasi made me like Damian a lot more, which, in turn, made his death more meaningful for me, personally. He built the relationship between Bruce and Damian and it was something very special and very beautiful. I would trust him with handling Talia.

As for Gail Simone…who wouldn’t trust Gail Simone handling a strong female character? Though Talia only played a minor part where Gail has written her (Villains United), her moments were pretty perfect. Especially when beating Dr. Light with a coffee pot. I think every woman in the DCU wanted to do that at some point or another, but Talia got to and it was great. Gail has a real skill for bringing underdeveloped or overlooked characters into their own - I think Secret Six, for example, was a masterpiece. She’s a master at dialogue, and revealing character through dialogue.

I would love to see her write Talia again.

The bat-mobile has been designed so as to resist anything,even if it has to slam against a giant iron wall,or a huge building fall on top of it..Lucius fox has implemented many things,open and secret in the Bat-mobile,the most important one is its flying capability,like transforming in into a high tech glider…and adding more secrets,the seats had personal mechanism to transform just the seats itself into a whole new flying suit..in short,the Bat-mobile was a technology innovation that can hold against almost every hard situation with state of the art security and unbelivable utility..But for everything listed above to get in action,they all need to be activated…a simple push to the touchscreen on the hud or either in the console of the car,it simple,very simple that a single click could easily trigger the whole bat-mobile into a fighting tank….but when he is sitting in the seat,unable to move his finger an inch,and struggling to keep his eyes from not to fall to dark,everything implemented is useless…for now,all it could do is to pierce into the darkness and dodge each and everything that came across its path..Blood keep lowing out of his shoulder blade,the curved grip of a ninja sword was visible as the sharp end was well thrust into his flesh cutting the shoulder blade of him and leaving his hand to a semi parallelized condition..His face was filled with sweat,and there was a slight color change to his total skin tone,he has been poisoned,not just but heavily poisoned..He lay there still,like all the impulses were cut short from his nerves itself…The blood keep flowing out of his kevlar,leaving its reddish ness all over the seat..The Batmobile dodged a sand dune,making it flying up on the air and land itself over the bushes that grown uncontrollable under the tree trunks..The rain hasn’t stopped shattering down,but the wind was soo calm and balanced,like it could listen to any whisper around…The car rushed under the woods,the irregular humps and muddy path made the car shake and dodge the sides continous,he was moving forward and trying to gain control over the car while his hands keep holding him stiff and painful..In no time,Batmobile slam itself over a huge tree ahead,the metal front of the car almost crushed into the tree leaving the tires to roll in the mud beneath…It took him almost five minutes to open the hud and eject out of the car,he was panting and hssing in pain,the blood flow down to the sand spreading all over the muddy water down him..He move a bit,but not further than four steps,he try to stand supporting the tree but the pain was too excrusitaing and agonzing…But this is not the deadly pain he has faced manytime,but the pain that could make him under the shock,or realisation…realization of how could he let it happen…He sat down on his knees, trying to move his left hand to his shoulder and to slide out the knife..It wasn’t easy,every inch he moved made him fall into more and more pain,but finally he did slide that long slender knife into his hand,it was heavily filled with his blood but the golden handle circled with metalic strips were still glazing in darkness..He hold it parallel to his face,and glance at the arabic wording that inscripted on the handle..His eyes become keen,the pain in his face give way for something else,something more agonozing and painful,his lips read each of those words again,like trying to make sure that indeed wass happened..and in his red lips,with his teeth grinding each other he said the name loud, “Al Ghul”,the lightening strike above the sky,the rain drops fall oon to the sharpe edge off the knife and spalsh on to his cowl but his eyes didn’t shuffled,those eyes shine in its glorios and glaring attire under that horrible blood filled night..


The night wasn’t any special,nothing large than small tiime thugs and couple of new born robberers and that was more than unnatural,odd for Gotham anyway…Standing up above the closed building and watching down town Batman could feel the clamness around there..One day or another,he knew there will be a calm night in Gotham but today,this night,and that calmness keep warning him about something different..his instinct keep warning him about something is coming up,and it is sooo near…like in that deep calm air,he could hear the scream of Gotham in its most horrific state…‘the calm before the storm’,he thought to himself as he run his eyes towards the corner to see the city again,just to make sure…

Zatanna and Bruce

Doing Twins for Reasons….

  • Name: Adella Martha and Anthony John Wayne
  • Gender: Female and Male
  • General Appearance: The twins have identical coloration. Black hair and piercing blue eyes. Adella looks a lot like Zatanna, but with a much more defined nose and Anthony is his fathers twin, but not as tall as him. 
  • Personality: The twins act more like Zatanna. Being more playful than their father. Adella is easier to calm down and takes things more seriously than her brother where as Anthony is more into the fun side of things. He reminds Zatanna of her cousin Zach. The twins both love fighting crime with their parents… which scares the living crap out of Zee, being a protective mother.
  • Special Talents: Both of the twins inherited Zee’s magical abilities. Adella utilizes them more than her brother, who is more into the non-magical side of crime fighting. 
  • Who they like better: Adella likes Zatanna and Anthony like Bruce… but if you asked them, they would simultaneously say ‘Alfred’.
  • Who they take after more: They both take after different parts of their parents. 
  • Personal Head canon: Zee and Bruce originally weren’t going to tell the Twins about their fathers roles as Batman to protect them… but one rainy day, they 7 year olds were playing around the Manor and wandered into the Batcave. It was all open from then on.
  • Face Claim:

Antony: Asa Butterfield

Adella: Raffey Cassidy
