|Story/s:||The Kryptonian part four|
Beguiler has been torturing Flash since his capture it would seem. She’s impressed by how quickly he heals. He mocks her tempting her to kill him when Bedlam interrupts with news the 2nd wave to the Batcave are all dead.
Green Lantern is in the middle of it protecting himself, HawkGirl and 2 Parademons. He tells the Parademons to run back home tell them what has happened. He then sort of cloaks himself and Hawkgirl as they follow the Parademons back to base and hopefully back to Flash. Green Lantern can sense he’s alive but can’t pinpoint his location due to a dark energy around him.
They find the base in Washington and Green Lantern makes a hell of a show and noise to get the Parademons attentions, covering for HawkGirl while she searches for the Flash. After using her senses she hones in and finds the Flash, cutting him loose of torture table. He warns they need to leave before Beguiler comes back.
Outside Beguiler attacks Green Lantern and he retaliates and blasts her flying into a building.
Green Lantern intents to fight them alone, but Kendra (HawkGirl) convinces him there is a better way, one that won’t get him killed. They escape slowly enough for the Parademons to follow and HawkGirl calls Batman on the coms saying they need help, the pied piper.
Jimmy tries to talk to Val, explaining things aren’t his fault and that Batman basically has issues of his own that he takes out on others. Then he asks him what’s under the hoodie he refuses to take off. Val reluctantly shows him…. It’s a uniform with the Superman “S” symbol for Hope.
So Val is a pacifist, has the power of Superman, an Army of Parademons are coming and he’s refusing to attack either … oh boy. I’m guess the Pied Piper is referring to the shell Queen Marella gave them. Well that’s my guess. I could be wrong. I need to go back and check my older comics… still no explanation to how HawkGirl escaped Hazard. Maybe I missed something.
