Action Comics #586
Good conclusion to enjoyable, action-packed 3-parter.
Two of the New Gods - Lightray and Orion - travel to Apokolips to confront a brainwashed Superman.
The best thing about this is the ending. It manages to bring it all home and not disappoint. Given how much was at stake, and how far the action had gone, that’s very impressive. Superman battles the good guys, gets his memory back and goes one-on-one against Darkseid. Yet, it doesn’t end with the villain defeated. He loses the battle not the war and, as the dust settles, he seems even more impressive/fearsome. Not bad, not bad at all. (What will Superman do next?)
We also get confirmation that G. Gordon Godfrey has ‘manipulating powers’ with which ‘to shape the thoughts of humans’. This goes a long way towards making LEGENDS seem less silly, what with cops turning on superheroes and ordinary folk rioting in the streets, etc.

I know the Beagles aren’t exactly geniuses, but you’d think they’d notice the fact that there was a dime in a display case and figure that’s probably important? Especially when it’s literally the first time they’d see upon entering this room?
Besties do I get myself a David Lost Boy Funko pop as a birthday gift to myself?
I’m a little amazed it took this long for this to happen, considering you have most of the residents of the mansion being impersonated, and everyone who has a copy is currently inside the mansion. You’d think you’d get a “mirror moment” like this a lot sooner.
I wonder if this is going to be where Dewey and Louie realize that Beakley’s not the only one being replaced? They both seem like they think this is odd....
Even though, again, this episode seems really inconsistent on whether anyone notices the differences in voices and accents between the impersonators and the people they’re pretending to be. Sometimes they notice, but most of the time, they don’t.
i'm becoming increasingly soft for the lost boys
The Adventures of Superman #426
Wow. That escalated quickly.
An amnesiac Superman leads the Hunger Dogs in all-out war against Darkseid and thousands of them die. Plus, there’s twist at the very end.
This is impressive. There’s enough packed into this to fill about 3 comics. The fighting is really brutal and the death toll is staggering. Superman isn’t quite himself which makes it all the more fascinating.

The Bond of a Pack Part 7
Summary: New friends are made. Sorry this has taken a while! I was quite ill recently, and have been distracted by my other writing projects, but I hope you enjoy this all the same!
“Star. My name is Star.” The girl told you. The name suited her perfectly.
“Well, Star,” you smiled at her, “how fast can you run? Cause that guy you hit seems to be wanting revenge.”
She turned to see that you were right- a boy around her age was storming towards the two of you, a red mark on his face. She turned back to you, a worried look in her eyes. You grinned and held your hand out to her.
“Don’t worry, I’ve been wanting to punch that guy for a while now, he really doesn’t know how to take no for an answer, does he?”
“No, he doesn’t,” she laughed.
“So, are we running or not?” You wiggled your fingers at her.
“Yeah,” she grabbed your hand, “we’re running.”
In a second you were off the railing, holding her hand tightly in yours and sprinting down the boardwalk. You were fast, faster than her, but she still managed to keep up with you, her bare feet slapping on the ground as the two of you raced away. She was laughing loudly even whilst running, and you decided that you liked her.
You had seen her defending another girl- that guy had been insistent on flirting with her even though she didn’t want it, and Star had clearly seen enough and intervened. She got in between the two of them, punched him, and walked over to stand by the railings you were perched on so she could cool off, her jaw set with anger. You had complimented her on the hit, told her your name, asked for hers, and now here you were, triumphant in having escaped the guy and the security guard he asked for help.
“So, you get in trouble like that often?” You asked her after the two of you slowed down to a walk.
“Only when necessary.” She replied with a laugh. “I’m not the most violent person out there, but if someone’s really bothering me or someone else, I’m not afraid to deal with it, either.”
“Same here.” You grinned. You liked her- whilst you didn’t get the same ‘pack’ feeling from her that you did from the boys, she definitely seemed like someone you could get along with.
“Do you live around here?”
“Sort of. I travel a lot, but I always return here.” You shrugged,
It had been just over a year since you met your pack, and after six months or so of staying in Santa Carla you couldn’t shake off the itch to travel like you used to. The boys, upon discovering that werewolves were mortal despite their extended lifetimes, had insisted on turning you right there and then, but you were less impulsive and more cautious. You wanted to find out more about the effects being turned had on a wolf, and used that as a reason to travel again for a little bit; you would stay away for a month, visiting as many other packs that you knew of, before returning for a week to be with your pack again. Each time you came back the vampires were increasingly impatient to turn you, and it was only now that you returned with some good news.
“What about you? Where did you come from?”
“Oh, nowhere in particular.” She shrugged. “I just needed a change of pace. Santa Carla seemed to offer that up, so here I am.”
“Hm.” You tilted your head- she was telling the truth, but only a small part of it. Once again, you didn’t pry. You didn’t want to break the forming friendliness between the two of you. “Well, if you want, I could show you around a little. It’s been a couple months since I’ve been back here, and it would be nice to have someone to explore with.”
“Yeah, that’d be nice.”
A few hours later, you found yourselves down by the beach, chatting about nothing in particular and staring out into the sea. Star was fun; she knew a lot of random little facts, having picked them up here and there on her way to Santa Carla, and knew a lot about the stars in particular. As a wolf, you often used the stars to navigate, but you didn’t really know much about them.
By the time the sun was setting, Star had worn herself out from both running earlier, and talking to you. You were still quite energetic, but when you noticed that Star had accidentally fallen asleep next to you you chose to stay beside her. You didn’t want to risk anyone trying something whilst she slept. So, instead of meeting up with the boys like you had planned, you sat on the beach, trying to match up some of the stars with the constellations Star had told you about.
“There you are, pup. We’ve been looking for you, you weren’t at the boardwalk like we planned.” Someone spoke from behind you. You grinned- it was David. You knew he would come find you.
Standing, you turned to face the vampire. He looked a little displeased, probably due to your absence, but mostly glad to see you. You gave him a quick smile, apologising for not meeting where you had planned, before hurriedly informing him of what you had found out during your latest travels.
“David, it’ll work, werewolves can turn! I found someone like me. They were a werewolf, but their pack were vampires, and they were able to turn.”
“Good.” He nodded. He would have much preferred to have just turned you months ago, but after some forceful insistence from you, he agreed to let you investigate beforehand, respecting your need to plan beforehand. “What did you find out?”
“A lot. Too much to repeat to you right now.”
“We’ll talk properly back at the cave. You’ve done well, pup.” He complimented, before turning to where your newfound friend was still sleeping in the sand. “Who’s this?”
“Someone I met earlier. I was waiting for the sun to set, but she got herself into some trouble and I stayed with her to make sure she was safe.” You sat back down, folding your hands in your lap and looking up at David- you didn’t say so out loud, but you were determined to stick by her for a bit. You knew how it was to be alone.
David glanced between the two of you. Sometimes your wolfish qualities- namely your protectiveness- could be a tad extreme. Once you had your mind set on something you wouldn’t let it go. So, as he turned to leave, he said, “Bring her with you, there’s room for one more if she wants.”
Star ended up accepting the offer. You followed David to where the others were waiting, greeting the rest of your pack with hugs and laughter, telling them what you had learned whilst Star was out of earshot and promising to give them the full details once you got back to the cave.
Soon, you were back home, lounging on the couch and talking to your pack whilst Star slept.
“So, I met another wolf who’s pack were also vampires, and they had been turned a few years ago,” you started recounting your discoveries, “they said that the biggest differences between me and you guys will be that I won’t gain any extra strength, I won’t be able to fly, I won’t need to sleep during the day even though sunlight will harm me, and I won’t need to feed as often as you. I’ll still be able to shift, and my bloodlust changes based on the moon. That’s it.”
You let out a breath, glancing around the room. David was staring at you, his eyes slightly distant as if he were mulling something over in his head. Paul had flopped onto the couch next to you, Marko was leant against your legs, and Dwayne was sprawled somewhere behind you and you felt his hand squeeze your shoulder. You could practically feel their excitement at the idea of having you beside them forever- you were a part of them, now, just as they were a part of you.
“That’s it. You’ll be one of us, pup. You sure you’re willing to go this far?” David spoke to you, making sure one last time that you wanted this.
“Of course I am.” You nodded resolutely. The boys exploded, cheering and whooping, squeezing you against them and shaking you, promising you that you had absolutely made the right decision, that they were glad to finally have you on board.
The next evening you awoke entangled by vampires. Groaning, you stretched out your limbs, shaking the two that had decided to use you as a mattress- most likely Paul and Marko- off of you. You vaguely recalled the events of the other night, and flexed your fingers, testing out how they felt in your new half-vampire body. Nothing felt different, apart from a buzz in your veins and a new awareness of the still-human Star moving around in the other room. You wondered why David was still letting her stay, apart from her friendship with you- maybe he just felt another person was needed for the group.
“Pup? You awake?” Paul mumbled, rolling over and on top of you again. “ ‘s not time to be awake yet, go back to sleep.”
“Fine, bloodsucker, but I’m not lazing about for as long as you do.” You huffed, curling up underneath your pack member, happily letting him once again take advantage of your unnatural warmth- another thing you wouldn’t lose as a vampire.
“You’re a bloodsucker too, now, pup.” Marko commented, having woken up as well. “Not all the way, yet, but soon enough you will be.”
“Guess so.” You smiled. “Speaking of, when am I gonna get my first kill?”
Killing humans had never been your thing, but the boys insisted that you needed to do so to complete the transformation, so you trusted them to guide you in the right direction.
“Soon enough. Tonight, in fact, if you’re ready.” David dropped from the ceiling, answering your question and making you jump at the same time.
“I swear, David, you’re gonna give me a heart attack one day,” you muttered under your breath, ignoring his chuckle, “and yes, I’m ready.”
“Good, then let's get going.”
The six of you- including Star- all piled out of the cave and down to the boardwalk. Star, who was still unaware of the supernatural state of the rest of you, was told to wander around for a bit whilst you decided on your target. She eventually came back hand in hand with a little boy, who introduced himself as ‘Laddie’. David ignored the kid, but the rest immediately took a shine to him. He was cheeky, and could give as much teasing as he got. You felt particularly warmed towards him- you had always had a fondness for cubs, even if you were awkward around them. So, you looked on with warm eyes as Star and Dwayne kept Laddie entertained.
After an hour or so, you picked up on a scent you recognised from earlier that week- it was the same guy Star had punched when you first met her. He was going after another girl, and still appeared to have been unable to learn his lesson about taking ‘no’ for an answer. Your eyes darkened.
“You’ve seen someone, haven’t you.” David was suddenly behind you, not quite touching you but close enough to speak next to your ear.
“Yeah. Him.” You motioned over to the guy with your head.
“Ah, I see. Good choice.” You heard the smile in his voice as he spoke. “We’ll help you out later tonight. First, we’ve got to get our new human friends back to the hotel. Then you can have your fun, pup.”
You grinned. A gnawing hunger curled in your belly, and anticipation made your heart hammer in your chest.
I’m planning on doing another romantic/platonic route fic for when the reader actually gets turned (the process will definitely be different depending on their relationship with the boys) but that might take a while.
Also I really like the idea that werewolf!s/o is the type to kind of, collect people? Not in a weird way, more like they see someone who’s lonely or needs help and is like, “Well, guess I’m adopting you now.”
