Testing the Waters (Open RP. Everyone is invited.)


(Opening post to set the scene is a doozy. The rest should be shorter. emoticon )

Johnny Geiger walked through the streets of Metropolis, his shotgun clearly sitting in its holster on his back. He moved through crowds of carefree shoppers and sightseers, going about their day. It surprised him a bit, as people in Gotham didn't have this luxury. Despite many heroes moving on to other cities, crime was not climbing as fast as he thought it would.

Upon entering a small park, Johnny sat down on a bench. He watched as people passed him, gawking a bit at the sight. After all, it wasn't every day you saw a zombie look alike wearing a pirate costume. He'd nod at joggers who ran past him and stared. Some would smile back, as others winced and cowered from him.

Johnny was enjoying the peace and quiet. Gave him time to think about things he tried to ignore. Like why he joined the Hoods organization.  At first, it was because he knew they could get !@#$ done. But now... the line between doing right and hurting those that don't deserve it was starting to blur.

He was dragged from his thoughts when a kid sat on the bench next to him. He was 8 years old, at the most. He kept staring at Johnny until finally, Geiger piped up in his gruff voice. "Can I help you?"

The boy didn't look away, just stared for another second or two before he asked, "are you a good pirate or a bad pirate?"

Johnny smirked. "Do you think there are such things as good pirates and bad ones?" He asked.

The boy nodded. "Of course there are. I just don't know which one you are."

Johnny thought for a second, tilting his head back. "That's somethin' I've been asking myself too, kid."

"I think you're a good one. " The kid answered for him. "Because if you were a bad one, I'd be afraid of you. You'd be hurting people and stealing stuff, right?"

Johnny smiled at the kid and got to his feet. "Thanks, kid. But I'm not one or the other.  " He said and messed up the kids hair as he walked past.

Johnny's smile stayed in his face as he left the park, walking past dark alleyways until a commotion down one of them caught his attention. Near the back door of a fancy office building, a car sat idle with its trunk door open. He squinted and saw two large men dragging a smaller, younger man in a business suit to the open trunk. The young man's hands were tied behind his back and he had tape over his mouth.

"Never a dull moment..." Johnny said to himself and started to walk to the car. The two muscle heads were struggling to get the young man into the trunk, as he fought back, kicking and trying to scream for help. Johnny's boots hit heavily on the pavement, making both men stop and look around the trunk door at the approaching obstacle.

"Whoa, hey. Stop there, pal..." one said, walking around to the other side of the car to confront the costumed freak. "It ain't what it looks like. Just turn and walk away."

"Ain't what it looks like? Looks like you and your buddy are trying to take some kid someplace he doesn't want to go... what's that word again... oh right. Kidnapping. That ain't something I'm willing to stand by and watch." Johnny said, crossing his arms and standing up to the big guy.

"Well.... it's something you're going to need to get over. Walk away before you get hurt." The goon said before his buddy slammed the trunk door closed, successfully getting their victim into the compartment. Now the second guy walked around the vehicle to deal with Johnny.

Johnny smiled at the two men, his face hidden in shadows cast by his tricorn pirate hat. "Listen, boys. He obviously did something to you... let's be civil here, and-" before he could finish, the man to the right laid a punch across Johnny's cheek.

The pirate stumbled backward a step or two from the hit and chuckled. "Alright then..." He said and grabbed his attacker by the throat. He slammed the oversized man into the hood of the car. The second man raised his fists to hit Johnny over the head, but Geiger pulled the shotgun from his holster and aimed it at the other goons face, stopping the attack in its tracks.

The man with the scarred hand on his throat tried to scream, now seeing Johnny's face up close as it smiled back at him. "Bad. Move."

With a twist of his hand, Johnny snapped the man's neck at the same time he pulled the trigger on his shotgun. The two men slid to the ground in the alleyway as Johnny stood up and straightened his coat.

He looked back at the trunk, which was bouncing slightly due to the struggling man within. 'Something bigger is going on here...' Johnny thought to himself. He grabbed the keys to the car that was in the goon's pocket and thought what to do next.

Re: Testing the Waters (Open RP. Everyone is invited.)


Metropolis was home, or at least the closest the teen knew now. She still missed the spires of crystal and the calmness the people had, as they walked down the shimmering pass. She was Kara Zor-El, but here, she was called... Supergirl.

Kara loved to fly, it was the one power she would miss, if she ever lost them. She often thought what would she do, if she ever lost them. There were ways, and while she was not that concerned it would happen, she still thought how much she would miss flying.

But among her powers that were also useful, was hearing. She could hear a pin drop from a mile away. That didn't mean she could focus in on the exact location, but damn that was a racket. But this was not a pin, this was a fight. She could hear the struggles of someone trying to break ropes, and then the distinct sound of fist to face. Then the shotgun. She had to investigate this now!

So in a blur and sonic boom, Supergirl, the Girl of Tomorrow, flew to the scene. The park was her favorite place to relax, but today... it was the scene of a crime. Landing behind the pirate-zombie, Kara gasped.

"What... what the... are you a... ZOMBIE!?" It didn't matter that he was standing there, looking normal. To the teen, he looked like the walking undead. Her first instinct was the fly away, but she was a heroine too. This was not the movies, she told herself. So despite her fear, she swallowed quickly and stood her ground.

"Le... him them go." She saw the dead men on the ground, but noticed it was not from bites. "How... how did you kill them with a gun? I thought all zombies ate people." She was still scared, but she did not try to make a move... yet.

Re: Testing the Waters (Open RP. Everyone is invited.)


Lilly Evans, Aka financier of Hero Watch, was feeling restless… She’d spent the last few months playing politics, ensuring Hero Watch could operate however she DEEMED they needed to operate, made sure to stroke Galetea’s ego to keep her playing to the tune she wanted, and even kept her pet psychic from prying into her mind.

But she was restless.

At her heart, Lilly was a lantern. But she was far more than a mere “yellow” lantern now. She had graduated to becoming a lightsmith, a being with such command and control over the yellow spectrum that she didn’t even need a ring, or even a battery to power her. She could feed off the very fear of her surroundings, or draw on the primordial yellow energy of the universe.

And yet with such power she had no chance to use it. Not recently…

So as she walked down the busy streets of Metropolis, shopping bags in hand while chatting on the phone the sounds of a shotgun, in METROPOLIS of all places caught her ear and she turned to walk towards the area where she heard them coming from.
Her “green” eyes focused on the scene and she frowned, seeing two dead bodies and Supergirl standing there.

“What’s this all about?” She asked plainly.

Johnny heard a soft landing of feet behind him. In Metropolis, he wasn't surprised that a hero would come and confront him. What did surprise him was who showed up. He looked over his shoulder to see none other than Supergirl herself. He smiled, his scarred skin twisting into a grin.

"Zombie? That's a rather rude greeting. Kids today have no manners." He said and turned to face her. "To answer your question, I killed that guy by pulling the trigger." He said and put his shotgun in its holster on his back.

"Names Johnny. It's nice to meet you." He said, taking off his hat and bowing to greet her. His bald head was just as scarred as his face. He replaced his hat on his head and straightened up to look at her. "For the record, these assholes attacked me first." He pointed to the corpses.

His explanation of the events that occurred were halted with the entrance of another woman. He leaned to the side to see who was standing behind Supergirl. Seeing the shopping bags, he figured she would see his face and run. But when Johnny looked into her eyes, he could tell that the newcomer wasn't easily frightened off.

"And who might you be?" He asked.

While the three got acquainted, the man in the trunk started to kick the trunk door again. Hearing the shotgun made him nervous that any hero that tried to save him had died. The three in the alley could clearly hear the struggle from the trunk.

(( Sorry for delay. It was my birthday last night. ))

Kara was still in shock. "So now zombies use guns? Wait, you are talking... okay. So you are not a zombie, obviously. So what... I mean, can I ask this? What happened to your face?" The small teen looked at him, and then at the bodies, as the truck started making noise.

"Wait, who is in the trunk?" She grabbed the door and ripped it off, flinging it into the alley, and nearly taking Lilly's head off.

"Oh crap. I mean, sorry!" She yelled to Lilly. "I didn't see you there." She then looked into the trunk to see who was held there. "Are you okay mister?" she helped the man out of the trunk and then ripped the binds on his wrists. "You will be okay now."

Celorc was walking with the crowd in his white t-shirt and black jeans, not really paying attention to anything. He didn't know where his feet was taking him but really, he didn't care. He just wanted to explore his new city more.

On his hips where two pistols, clearly visible. if one thing in the military has taught him, it was to always be ready. Even if you did move to a Super Hero City, always be ready in case something happens.

As he walked through, his trained ears managed to hear something big being thrown against something. instinctively, he ran towards the sound, unholstering his pistols, getting ready in case there was trouble.

As he entered the alleyway, he stopped short. There was a girl with green eyes, a zombie looking pirate and a red cape female who was hunched over a trunk, talking to someone inside it. He also noticed 2 dead bodies and the trunk door down the alleyway.

Holstering his pistols, he walked in slowly, not sure what he has stumbled into.

"Hello," he said with a slight accent. He clearly was nervous. "Need any help?"

Lilly watched as the man was yanked out the truck by the as usual careless, and reckless Supergirl. She would move her head to the side as the trunk flew by her head and skidded down the alleyway towards the gun toting man. “Idiot… you could kill someone, why not try being more careful.” She said before looking back to the Pirate man.

“You know, murder is illegal in this city, unless you feared for your life, then you could make a case.” She would smile then and step forward. “So explain it all to me, what happened. I’m Lilly Evans by the way.” Anyone who watched “TMZ” like shows would know she was a former bad girl heiress to a fortune and was a constant trouble maker ala Paris Hilton. But now, the name Lilly Evans was also part of Hero Watch.

“I am also the co-director of Hero Watch. So if this is a lawful situation, I can vouch for you, and you… Supergirl should be more careful hurling deadly objects around. Use your brain sometimes.”

Re: Testing the Waters (Open RP. Everyone is invited.)


(Well happy birthday then. emoticon )

As the trunk door whizzed past his head, Johnny stepped back a bit. "Jesus! Easy!" He shouted and then looked at the new comer.

He nodded towards the guy in a way of saying hello. "I think we got this. But uh... make sure you keep those guns holstered, hm?" Johnny said with a smile.

Looking back at Lilly, his smile remained. "Feared for my life? From these two?" he pointed to the corpses. "No. Now, did they threatened my life? Sure. So I'd say it was justified."

As the man's hands were freed, he pulled the tape from his mouth. "God damn it, that hurt." The guy from the trunk said as he smoothed his hair down. He looked to be about 25 years old, tall and some what handsome with brown hair and a black suit. "I'll tell ya what happened. Those two assholes tried to kidnap me. My father is a wealthy man. They probably wanted to ransom me off or something." He said, throwing the tape at the corpses.

"So... thanks I guess." He looked over at Supergirl and his smiled that cocky smile most trust fund kids have. "Always loved that costume, Supergirl. Too bad you're too young. A few years though, and I'll be looking you up." He said and winked at her.

Turning towards the entrance of the alley, his eyes fell on Lilly. "You, on the other hand... look a bit more my umm... speed." He walked up to her with swagger in his step. "I'm holding auditions for the position of my trophy wife. Care to try out? I'll pick you up at 8."

Johnny's smirk widened. He grabbed the back of the young man's suit and dress shirt and dragged him back into the alley, next to the car.

"Get your hands off of me!" He yelled, trying to reach for Johnny's hand.

"Now that is no way to treat women." Johnny said and slammed him against the brick wall of a building. "Now, why were those two really trying to grab ya. Because I know you ain't tellin' the truth."

"Jesus Christ, you are one ugly son of a !@#$, aren't you?" The young man said, with a smile. "I told ya already. They wanted money from kidnapping me."

"See, that doesn't add up for me. I think you're lieing. And I hate a liar." With a twist of his wrist, Johnny brought out a hunting knife with a 6 inch blade.

"Freaking hell!" The young man said, his eyes wide.

 Johnny turned his head towards Lilly. "See this is what fearing for your life looks like." He said and put the knife to the "kidnap" victims throat. "Now, last chance. You tell me why those two assholes were stuffing you into a trunk... or I give you a second smile."

"Aren't even one of you hero pricks going to help me?! Get this psycho freak off of me!" The man said, panicing.

Kara blinked, as that was all she could do, as all these things happened. She could not believe the way the "victim" acted, and even hit on her? Or how Lilly blatantly called her an idiot. Or even how this new guy showed up with guns in holsters?

"ENOUGH!" Supergirl yelled, and then at superspeed attempted to grab Johny, and separate him from the man. But also, she grabbed the victim and held him in the air. "Both of you, stop it! And you, Mr I can carry guns, do you have a permit? If not, I need you to calm the hell down. All of you. I am going to call the police and they can clean this up."

She looked at Johnny again, "And you, zombie or whatever you are. I am going to take you in for questioning. I am not just some cute skirt here. I am freaking Supergirl."

Then she glanced at Lilly. "And I know who you are, who you really are... or were. Don't think I forgot about what you did... before the Hero Watch." She added with a smirk, "And maybe I was aiming for you, but I missed."

It looked funny to any onlookers, as the 5'5" 100 lbs, teenaged girl, held the two large men with ease. Her cape and skirt, blowing in the wind with the same sway that her hair did. If anyone saw it, they would either take pics or run away. It was what she was used to though.

Lilly grinned as the man flirted with her even as he seemed to ignore the precarious position he was in. She crossed her arms beneath her breasts and smirked. “Well I doubt you’d last long in my world boy.” She said even as Supergirl grabbed him and separated them.

“You remember who I was before, Supergirl, then you should remember to watch your tone.” She said and smiled. “As for taking him in. No, there’s no need for that. I will vouch for him as the men threatened him and he was merely defending himself.” She smiled at Supergirl and then looked to the man holding the guns. “Easy cowboy, it’s fine, its’ fine heh.”

“As for you…” Her eyes flickered yellow briefly and the boy would suddenly begin to see his worst fear unless he had some kind of mental block or mental powers to counter it. “Answer the man’s question and I can help you, don’t answer and well…”
