Supergirl: Into the Endless [Fanfiction]

KARA

 

Kara had been having quite a stressful day, or night, she wasn’t sure which at this stage, traversing the timelines of the multiverse in search of paragons and allies was proving as confounding to mind as it was stressful to her body.

Perhaps it was this befuddlement which was shortening her patience with The Monitor’s ways of trying to help everyone survive the current crisis.

She and Kate Kane, the Batwoman, entered just as The Monitor was identifying someone in the room as the paragon of truth, freshly discovered by her cousin Clark and his wife Lois.

“Lex Luthor played his role, and led me to him” he said, with Lex giving him a casual and mocking curtsy.

Kara was too fixated on what she desired to say to him to really take notice of who the paragon was.

“Oh yeah? How many people did he hurt to do that?”

Kara didn’t relent on spilling what was in her tired yet driven mind next.

The next few words she spoke would serve as a challenge to The Monitor, and to the way he was doing things.

“You think you’re a hero but you’re not”

“I think he’s kind of neat” said Lex.

Kara glanced at him with a look of dulled expectancy, as if to say “Well duh, of course you’d say that” before continuing.

She decided to move on the subject of who exactly was the paragon they had found, as far as she could tell they only had three, and the Bruce Wayne she and Kate had met had not been much of anything other than a disillusioned edgelord who had killed his version of Superman and had written off his world as something worth salvaging.

She found herself soon distracted by the buff but mild-mannered person in front of her, and suddenly something less appropriate slipped from her tongue, something she herself wasn’t expecting to say.

“Whoa Ray, you are looking jacked”

Her cousin was quick to correct her, coughing loudly to draw her in and alert her to her mistake before she could go further with the assumption much to her embarrassment.

“It’s your cousin…sort of” said Clark.

Kara’s face, in very quick succession, went from puzzled, to startled, to horrified.

Oh shoot. Kara thought.

How did I get so aroused by that?

He’s a parallel version of Kal. Clark. Gross.

I hope Lois isn’t giving me the look of daggers right now.

No, no she’d know I meant Ray.

Great Rao, why did I even want to say that about Ray?

Why would I want to compliment Ray like that?

I mean, maybe it’s because he looks so sharp and lean, maybe I kind of like picturing him a bit buffer.

No, no, why would I want to picture that at all?

We’re like ships that pass in the night, we’ve never had the time or a place in the universe to ask the other how we’re doing, how we’re feeling, or even to see what we’re doing on a weekend.

Maybe this whole crisis is the universe’s way of calling to both of us, to let us know its ok to try things out even at the edge of the end.

On the other hand, it’s a lot more awkward now because all I can think of when I picture him now is a buff cousin, and that’s not a good fit.

Kara in that moment chose to bury the feeling, and let the thoughts pass long into the endless realms of forbidden possibility.

Superman Returns: Always Around [Fanedit]

Superman Always Around

Cranked this one out over the course of the week. Superman Returns was one of the earliest edits I ever attempted in my cruder amateur days, and now with more experience and a burst of inspiration, I’ve come up with what I hope is a worthwhile edit that helps make the movie more of a highlight reel for the man of steel and what he stands for than some dreary deconstruction

Changes include

-Pre-titles sequence using the scene where Lex raids the fortress
-Scenes rearranged, which includes inserting the last scene of the movie into a much earlier point, meaning Clark is aware right from the outset that Jason is his son. Instead of learning who he is on the boat, we learn it from Clark as he watches Jason in bed at Lois’ home (yes, I retained Stalkerman for narrative purposes), and Lois and Kal’s first meeting is after he visits Jason’s bedroom.-Superman’s return to public service occurs with taking out the bank robber

-Lois’ bitchier moments trimmed and lessened so she comes off as more emotionally conflicted…she’s not mad at Superman, just dissapointed, and often wrestles with publishing a new piece about why the world needs him, it was important to place the scene where she can’t type up that piece before she meets Clark outside her home to demonstrate how conflicted she is on her opinion.

-Lois and Richard laughing at Clark cut

-Lex reading the paper skips over the Superman headline for reasons that’ll become clear as you read this cut list

-Clark and Lois’ rooftop meeting trimmed so the tension is lessened, at least until the moment they almost kiss. Lois is accepting of Clarks’ presence and they go for a flyby.

-Clark’s conversation with Martha moved along to just before he heads over to the Fortress to find the crystals missing

-Film proceeds as normal until Clark is hospitalised. Lois visiting him cut because…

-After Clark awakens, we cut to the new ending…the shuttle rescue

-Flyby over the earth trimmed significantly to properly synchronise with the music after Clark takes off from the stadium. Lois fainting cut.

Batman & Superman: Justice [Fanedit]

Batman and Superman Justice

 

 

DC’s Rebirth was a near perfect example of what happens when a comic company, in this case DC, actually benefits from reconstruction rather than deconstruction. A lesson Marvel Comics have even learned lately, hence the spirited resurgence in their own comics.

Naturally, Rebrith didn’t last, the reconstruction didn’t last, and thus we’re left with more  dispiriting titles where pain, isolation, detatchment and lonliless appears to eat away at the heart of every hero. If all titles are the same, what little point is there investing in variety?

In this, the second of my two Batman v Superman edits (the other, Superman: Dawn of Justice, can be found here), I intend to honour Rebirth by going back into the movie and taking out any attempt at a fight between god and man. Here, Bruce is wary of Clark, but is willing to give him a chance, he is not easily fooled by Lex’s manipulations, not even when you think he’s about to. Thanks to a handy online voice distorter, I worked out a way for Bruce to become aware of Lex’s plan without having to drag Clark and Bruce into a fight.

Clark also doesn’t decree that Bruce might have to die. He’s Superman, he’s not going to consider the worst case scenario, he’s going to use his common sense and appeal to Bruce’s humanitarian side despite how he might personally feel about him.

No Doomsday, no fight, no arrest for Lex (because everyone who could connect to him is dead, all we have is justice dealt with by the world’s finest acting in tandem. Hopeful, and heroic.

As for what the other sequel hook is, well, I hate to be of those edits that leaves out the Knightmare sequence like every other edit does, so it’s used here as motivation for him to go all “Tower of Babel”

Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut: Fourth Option

SII Fourth Option

Inspired partially by a scene from  the ending of the Superman II redux by “booshman” , this “fourth option” edit allows you to view the Donner cut of Superman II in almost it’s unaltered entirety with yet another alternative outcome, one that does not include the time travel, amnesia kiss, or even the heartbreak of a Lois/Clark break-up.
I’ve grown up a Lois/Clark fan all my life and am a huge fan of their relationship in the comics, and they’ve never walked out on one another there. They’re one of the strongest, most durable married couples on the printed page and I want my movies reflecting that godammit!
Because I made this over a week ago on April Fools Day (and for future April Fool’s occasions), I decided to include the “Superman II as originally shot and intended to be filmed” credit at the beginning of the movie rather than do away with it, that way you can trick people into thinking this is indeed the story the director wanted to tell or surprise them with the fact that it’s a fanedit!
