And The Advdenture Continues

The Children And Their Identities

Kal and I are now nine years into our relationship and three years into our marriage. Kal, for the last few weeks has been on a mission in deep space, helping Maxima put down some sort of problem within her own government. She recently became queen. She wanted to go a different way and have a different type of government.

A few weeks before, she had sent some of her advisers to earth to do research on other types of government.

They had decided that the best form of government they researched was what was here in America. It has to do with a congress and a presidency.

Kal felt that it would take some help for them to set it up and to win over the people. They would have to explain what was going on and the workings of the government. They would definitely have to get used to being able to vote.

Anyhow, Kal was gone off to Almerac, both sets of twins were on Themyscira to begin their training. Sam and Ella are six months older than Balin and Sarah with Deanna, Rex, Hugo being in between.

I was on the watchtower, in one of the training rooms, keeping my skills sharp when I received a message from Booster Gold. He said that Martha Kent had fallen and broken her hip. It it were ten years ago, I would not have bothered going down but she is currently seventy-five and would more than likely need to recover.

Before I went to Metropolis General, I stopped by the manor because I did not want Clark and his mother to lose the farm, literally. I wanted to talk to Dick and Barbara to see if some people could be hired to take care of the farm while Kal and his mother was not there. Dick said that he would look into it and get back with me. I told him that I would be taking Martha to Themyscria and to pass a message through the embassy of if he wanted to he could send Barbara with the information.

After this meeting I had that Watchtower do a site-to-site teleportation to the embassy where I would take Mrs. Kent to Themyscira.

When I arrived, I first went to check the children. They were in their training sessions with Philippus and the rest of her training staff.

It was about the time that they were going to stop for the day and I decided to tell Sam and Ella that their grandmother had fallen and hurt herself.

After I told them, I took them to visit her. Balin and Sarah wanted to go as well for they treated her as their grandmother as well. The reason for this is they knew nothing of Bruce’s parents other than the pictures that were up in the manor.

As soon as I brought them to see Martha, I immediately went and found the bath chamber that was connected to the room in which we had her in. I went into the room and promptly threw up. After I did this, I went off to the wash basin, washed my face and hands, and walked out.

As I walked out, Martha looked at me and asked, “Diana, are you OK?”

I said, “I think I may have to go see Epione and J’onn because I have not been feeling well fo the last week or so.”

Within the hour, I was on the Healing Isle to see Epione.

Epione put her hand on my stomach and said, “Princess, you are with child, again and it seems you will have another multiple birth.”

I asked, “I hope that you won’t mind if I get a second opinion, do you?

She answered, “no, princess, I do not.”

I went back to where Martha and the kids were and grabbed one of my mothers aides to tell her that I had big announcement.

About an hour later, my mother came into the room. Martha and I were talking about Kal’s childhood and we were laughing about one of the times in which he had found out about one of his powers.

My mother asked, “ Daughter, I hear you have a big announcement. Martha, do you know what the announcement is?”

Martha said, “I have not the foggiest.”

I said, “Mothers,” I felt that I knew Martha well enough and long enough to consider her a second mother. In man’s world, when a woman marries into a man’s family, she becomes a part of his family and considers his mother as her mother.

I continued, “Kal has been gone fore three weeks. Two weeks ago, I started to have to go the bathroom, in the morning, and throw up. I did this, this morning as well. After I did, I went to see Epione and she told me that I was pregnant.”

Martha’s face lit up and mother smiled.

I went on to tell them that Epione thinks that I might possibly be having more than one baby but I told them that I wanted to go and confirm it with both J’onn and Leslie Tompkins.

Mother asked me if I knew exactly how many children I would be having. I said that all Epione said that she did not know how many there were. Martha asked, “You will go and see the Manhunter, I will assume?”

I said, “Yes, and I will get a third opinion from Bruce’s doctor, Leslie Tompkins.”

I left the children with mother and Martha on Themyscira and went off back Gotham to see Leslie. I walked into to her clinic and explained it to her and asked her to give me an examination.

The examination confirmed what Epione told me.

Then I went back to the Cave and saw that Selina was sitting at the big computer on watch. She asked how I was doing and I told her what I had found I was pregnant with Kal’s children. I, also, told her I was headed to the Watchtower for a third opinion.

When I arrived, I went straight to the medical bay where J’onn was patching up Oliver from whatever adventure was on. Also in there was Donna. She had somehow broken her leg and had it set in a cast.

I walked over to Donna and told her, “When you transport back down to earth, go to the Manor because I had something to tell her.”

I went and sat on one of the beds and waited for J’onn because he was busy with Stargirl.

As soon as finished with Courtney, he came and asked me what happening. I said I wanted a third opinion on my situation. He did all of the exams and the results came back the same way. I was pregnant.

Donna and I transported back to the manor and I had Barbara go to the Island and retrieve my to mothers and the children.

I talked with Alfred and the other amazons and had them help him to fix a meal so that I could tell them what was going on. At this point, Selina came up from the cave and she had a message.

She said, “I have just received a message from the Watchtower. Superman has returned.”

I had her go down to pass along a message to Clark to tell him I had an important announcement and to transport down to the Manor so he could receive it.

About an hour later, the meal was ready and everyone had arrived.

We had a nice meal and adjourned to tone of the many sitting rooms. I stood up, walked up to Kal, and said, “Kal, with in the last five days, I have found out something very important.”

He asked, “What is it?”

I said, “I am pregnant, and it is with your children.”

I knew that I would be getting big from the time I was pregnant for Balin and Sarah but it was not until six months later when we had found that I was going to have quadruplets and they were all going to be girls.

It had been decided that I was to spend the last few months of my pregnancy on Themyscira. Epione would be my primary physician and when it comes time for me to have the babies, J’onn would come to lend his skills to Epione in order to help her to deliver the babies.

Because when we built the compound that we put Bruce in after he was tortured, we put all the modern machines that were in the hospitals in man’s world. This includes heart monitors and other monitors for other vital signs. I had decided that I would sequester myself in the compound until the children would be born.

I wanted for nothing. Both J’onn and Epione came by, day by day, to check my progress. Artemis came by, along with some of my sisters, that had been hunting, with some of the foods native to Themyscria. Also, when I had my cravings, I had Kal make his trips to get the food for the weird cravings that I would be having.

I was standing on the porch when my water broke. At that point, I was having a leisurely conversation with Martha when I went into labor.

I sent Martha and one of the guards that were protecting me to tell my mother I was ready to have my babies. The two sets of twins were back in Smallville and Gotham, respectively, in school. I went into the room and laid down. I also radioed the Watchtower to tell J’onn to come for I was having the babies.

When I called in, I asked where Kal was. Oliver, whom was on duty at the time, said that Kal was in Kasnia. I asked, “Why?”

He said, “There was a major earthquake. Audrey and her king called in and asked for help. We sent Clark, Courtney, Kyle, and Xandy to take care of things.”

I said, “Please let Kal know that I have went into labor.”

Six hours later, I had not delivered and Kal had just arrived.

A half an hour after he arrived, I finally went into labor.

It took me twelve hours but I finally delivered all four of the babies. As was expected, they were all girls. They were all seven pounds and eight ounces. They had blue eyes and black hair.

Before he had come, Kal stopped by the manor where he picked up the children’s birth certificates and other papers that children would need to exist in the outside world.

Kal wanted to name them.

The first was to be named Lana. Lana had recently, and suddenly passed on. The second would be named Lara, after Kal’s biological mother. He decided that he would name the third Lyta after my mother, which made her smile. The last would be an honorarium of his wife, Lois Lane. He called her Lois.

The quads are now three years old and I found that I was pregnant again. Kal came to me and asked if I wanted to put the next baby into a kryptonian birthing matrix. I decided that this would be the best.

Nine months later, when little Martha was born, which, by the way, made the now ninety year old Martha Kent as proud as my mother was when we named Lyta after her.

Three months after the birth we put her into the birthing matrix. We asked mother if we could leave on the island. She had no problem with this. We felt that my sisters were the best people to guard little Martha over the next two years.

Six months later Martha Kent passed on. It was to be expected for she was only human and elderly. It was a nice funeral and mother offered to allow Martha to be buried on Themyscira but Clark wanted her buried with her husband, Jonathan.

Six months later, I found that I was pregnant again. We found that it would be a boy and decided to name the baby Jonathon.

We put him in a birthing matrix as well. We sent him on a two year trip around the sun. The computers in the matrix were set to return it to Smallville.

It is now time for Martha to come out of her matrix so I went to the island to get her to bring her back to Smallville.

Seven months after Martha was out and back in Smallville, I was pregnant again. It was another boy and this one would be called Bruce.

Six months after the birth, he, too, was put into a birthing matrix. We felt it was only correct that we would keep this one in the Bat Cave because we were naming it after Bruce Wayne.

Five months after we placed Bruce in the Bat Cave, Jonathon’s matrix landed in the Kent farms field. It just so happened the quads were playing and Martha say the rocket come down and went inside and told Clark the rocket had landed.

Six months after I found I was pregnant with triplets. They would all be males. Clark decided to name all of them. He named them James and Perry. James would be named after Jimmy Olsen. Perry was named after his former, late boss Perry White. The third would be named Jordan Ellis. It was a round about way for him to name the child after his biological father.

A few days after the triplets were put into their birthing matrices when I was caring for the rest of my children I received a message from the Watchtower.

It was J’onn and he asked me, “Diana are you watching the news.”

He said, “There is a hostage situation that is taking place a at a Gotham City private school.”

I asked, “What does that have to do with me?”

He said, “Look at which school it is.”

Clark was walking in to the farmhouse after taking a look at the birthing matrices of the triplets and he saw me with my hand to my ear.

I excused myself from the conversation with J’onn and asked Clark to turn on the television.

He did so and turned it to the newscast where Summer Gleeson and Jack Ryder were reporting on the hostage situation. The name of the school is Gotham City Charter. This is the school where Balin and Sarah are.

I asked, “J’onn does Dick, Barbara, and Tim know about this?”

He said, “Dick and Barbara are in the far east following up on some leads and Tim is on a mission with Young Justice.”

I asked, “So this means that Selina is the only one in town?”

He said, “Yes, and she is already there for her son, Sumner is also in this school.”

I asked, “Is there anyone else available?”

He said, “Yes, Natalie.”

I said, “Send her.”

I twirled into my Wonder Woman uniform, went to Daily Planet, and asked for a site-to-site transmission with a key on the roof of the build on which Selena was located. She was locate on a building across the street from the school.

When Natalie and myself arrived, we saw Selina holding her hand to her ear. I radioed up to the Watchtower and asked J’onn to patch us into the channel that Selena was listening to.

It was an open channel. It was one of the communicators that was give to one of the three children

We were hearing Sarah trying to negotiate with the terrorists.

Sarah was trying her best to negotiate the hostages out of the situation, but she was not having any luck with it.

She is currently in her sophomore year and has been elected to be what is known as “student body president.” I have not told her about when we met with Bruce and Lois and how they told us that she would, someday be th President of the United States and Queen of the Amazons.

It was at this point which we could plainly hear Sumner ask to be excused to go to the bathroom.

A few minutes later, I heard a beeping. Selina reached into her utility belt and took out a phone. After she looked at it, she turned to Natalie and myself and said, “Ladies, Sumner has texted me and said the negotiations are not going well. He says that he, Balin and Sarah are going to try to take the terrorists out. He says they want us to great a diversion so they can get to the lead terrorist.”

We decided to attack from the front and try to take these people out.

Natalie took off and I picked up Selena and flew her over. I dropped her off and she started to slash and dash these terrorists. I had somehow gotten myself pinned down to the point where all I could do was block bullets with my bracelets. Nat had come over had hit the armored van, she destroyed it. In doing this, she took out both their communications and weapons. This would give the children the chance to capture the terrorists that are inside of the school.

It took another hour before the Sumner, Balin, and Sarah emerged and they had the terrorists in tow and turned over to agent Faraday. He congratulated them and took the terrorists away.

After they were congratulated by their friends. They wanted to come over to us but w shook our heads. We had J’onn tell them they would be debriefed later.

A few hours later, after school, extracurricular activities, and homework, we had them taken to the Watchtower and debriefed.

We were not happy that they had to display their skills without having identities but we understood that it was un avoidable. I made a mistake, I meant to say that we were unhappy that Balin and Sumner had done what they had done. It did not matter about Sarah for we knew that she was not going to be a “cape.” We knew that all they would think was that she was just someone who had taken some self-defense classes and could really handle herself.

After we finished the meeting, we had Balin and Sumner make reports about what had happened. They asked us why, and we told them we need them for record keeping. We said that there could be a possibility they would have to face this terrorist group again.

After they made their reports, we sent them back to their respective homes. Because it was the weekend, we sent Sumner to Selina’s Flat on the east end and my children requested to be sent to Smallville because they wanted to visit with Sam, Ella and the rest of the Kent clan.

A few hours after we ate, it was just Clark, myself, and the younger babies because Clark allowed Sam and Ella to go back with Balin and Sarah to Gotham because they had bought some tickets to a sporting event at one of the sports stadiums in Gotham.

Clark and I went about taking care of our children.

A few hours after the children had left, we received some surprise visitors. It was Wally and Linda. They wanted to see the children.

When we answered the door we saw Wally and Linda both had big smiles on their faces. After the pleasantries of hello, Linda brought her left hand from behind her back. There was a ring. What was odd was that it had no diamond. Wally reached into his pocked and took out a piece of coal. It was a rather large piece of coal. He handed it to Clark and said, “We would feel very honored if Clark would make a Linda’s Diamond.”

Clark said, “I would be honored to do this.”

Linda said, “ I would have asked Lois to be my maid of honor but, as we all know, I can not. Diana, would you do me the honor of being my maid of honor?”

I asked, “I thought you might have asked Summer Gleeson?”

She said, “ I would have but she is on an assignment.”

I said, “I would be honored.”

It was then that Clark asked, “Wally, who is going to be your best man?”

Wally said, “Well, I would have asked John but, as we all know, he is on Thanagar with Shayera, so I thought I would like to ask Clark.”

Clark said that he would do this.

We asked when would the wedding take place. Linda said that it would happen in three months.

I asked her where will the bridesmaids dresses were coming. She wrote down the name of the Central City store and the address on a paper and gave it to me. I left the room and went and put into my day planner.

When I returned, Clark and I learned that Linda was pregnant and the baby would come six months after the wedding. They knew it was going to be a male and said they were going to name it John after John Stewart.

We talked for the next couple of hours. It was then we heard Linda’s phone go off. It was her boss telling her that there a major bank robbery going on at the Central City Second National Bank.

After Linda’s call was finished, Wally received a call from Nat to let him know what was happening in Central City.

Kal asked, “Wally, do you want me to come with you?”

Wally said, “No, Nat says that Question and Booster Gold is already there.”

\

It was then we received a message from Barbara saying that the Atomic Skull had injured her father and critically injured Harvey Bullock.

I told Clark to go because I knew that Sam and Ella were going to return soon and would be of a great help to me with the children.

Clark left a few minutes later and went off to Gotham to assist in the re-incarceration of the Atomic Skull.

A half-hour later, the kids returned. This was good for I had to go to the Watchtower to do my monitor duty. I wanted to get there so that I could watch what was happening in Gotham. It was not only that but I was paying attention to what Wally and Vic were doing in Central City.

With in the hour that I took over monitor duty, the Central City situation was working itself out.

As Wally was talking to the police Sargent, we received a message from Solovar which let us know that Grodd had escaped.

I did not have to ask how, because we all knew that it was only a matter of time before he would escape. He is too smart to stay in prison for any extended amount of time.

After the phone call I had also noticed that Kal had returned was currently writing his report. I looked in on the report and it said that someone had been messing around the Atomic Skull’s mind.

This fit with the call we received Gorilla City.

I told him about the call we had just received from Solovar and his face fell.

After logging his report into the system, he went back down to the farm.

It would be four or five more hours before I could get back.

After I finished my monitor duty I went to the commissary to grab a quick meal and then head back to Smallville.

After I returned back to Smallville, Clark had put the younger kids to bed, and Sam and Ella were doing their homework.

We started to talk about what the league would do about Grodd.

Clark said, “We will have to coordinate with both Wally and the Gorilla City security forces. “

I agreed with him with this and at this point, there was a knock on the door. When we opened it Wally was standing there and he did not look to happy.

Wally said, “It appears that Grodd is trying to get the money together to get the parts to put together enough for a device large enough to possibly take of the minds of the people in any particular country.”

Clark asked, “What else does Grodd need to put the this device together?”

It was at this point that Wally produced a list of possible parts that could be on the shopping list for Grodd. He said that he had e-mailed a copy of the list to Dick and Oliver because he knew that both Queen Industries and Wayne Tech make some of the parts.

After he gave us the list, he went back to Central City because he had an interview with Linda to let her know what the Flash had found out. About the robberies.

After he left, Clark and I talked.

We agreed that nothing good could come from what Grodd was trying to do. He mad the suggestion that I let mother no to be prepared.

She asked, “Why?”

I let her know what was going on and that Grodd has a habit of trying to take precautions to protect the minds of herself and the rest of my sister, amazons. I know that there are certain magic spells, incantations, and potions they could use to protect themselves.

After I did this, we received a call from Oliver. He said that some of his subsidiaries have been hit. When I asked him he went into was a bunch of technical jargon which I did not understand so I let Clark continue the call and I went to see how Ella was doing with her history homework.

About an hour later I returned to find Wally had returned, and along with him was Oliver, and Dick. Dick said that Intergang had hit some of Wayne Tech companies had been hit by one of Bruce’s enemies Keyodai Ken, had been the person that was doing the robberies. Dick did not know how he survived the explosion but he did survive and was now working with Grodd. He is obviously still seeking revenge against Bruce. He did not know that Bruce Wayne was dead. All he saw that was Wayne’s name on Wayne’s company and could not get past he seeking of vengeance.

We continued to talk about this what was going on when the twins came down. They asked what was going on and we told them that Grodd was going to try to take over the minds of many millions of people.

Sam asked, “Dad, is there something from the fortress that can help you in defeating this Grodd person?”

Clark looked at me and then answered, “Sammy, do not know. I never really thought using kryptonian technology in defeating earth criminals.”

He said that he would have to do some research and see if there was something he could use. Since it was going to be a holiday, Sammy said he would be willing to go and help Clark look through all of the archives. I requested that Ella would stay with me to help take care of the rest of the children. Also, Sarah would come later. She would be very much a help in the care of the rest of the children.

When Sarah arrived we clued her into what was happening and told her where Clark and Sammy was and what they were doing.

A few hours later, Clark and Sammy returned Sammy had a bag slung over one of his shoulders. He put it down on the table, opened it and took out a small box looking thing. Which they proceeded to explain how it worked. After Clark explained how it worked, he told Sammy to run it to Gotham for Dick for Wayne Tech to try to reverse engineer it.

A few days later, Dick had called a meeting. To this meeting he brought a crate with him. In this crate was headbands with very high technology that was designed to protect our brains from being taken over by the machine that, we felt, was being built by Grodd to help him take over Metropolis, Gotham, and other cities.

Dick felt that Amanda Waller should be at the meeting because Grodds machinations could and would put the world at risk. He felt that more people that were looking for Grodd the more likely we would be able to find him.

He had brought with him, an extra crate which I assumed was for her to bring back to Cadmus to hand out to her people so they could search for Grodd.

We went back to Smallville to give a pair of the headbands to the Sam and Ella. I had Dick take a pair back to Balin and Sarah.

We, also, made sure that the police in the cities had enough of the headbands to protect the men and women and blue so they could do their jobs. We made sure that Barbara’s father had his.

Clark met with Metropolis Police Department and Smallville Sheriffs Department.

Again, it was the fact that we wanted to as many eyes as possible on the problem that Grodd was posing.

So, within the next few weeks we searched. Those searches were turning up nothing.

I was tow weeks from the point from when we received the headbands when I received a call from Audrey.

She said, “Diana, I think we have a problem.”

I asked, “What is it?”

She continued, “We have found out that Grodd is in the mountainous areas in my husband’s country. It is appearing that some of the same warlords that gave him the problems a few months back .”

I pressed down on the intercom and said, “Superman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, and Huntress to the founders meeting room.” I radioed, down to the Gotham to tell Dick to come to the meeting and to bring Waller with him as well.

As the meeting began, I told everyone that we were not going to get much logistical help from the king because he is worried about his borders and his military was being stretched thin. We would need some help in going in.

It was then that Waller spoke up and offered us the use of her latest batch of Ultimen.

After the meeting Clark, Waller, and I beamed down to Cadmus to take a look at what she has done with the latest batch Ultimen.

We went into a control room which looked the ones on the Watchtower which are associated with the multiple training rooms.

Waller pressed a button. “A leaders of the groups of Ultimen please report to meeting room one.”

When the leaders of the various groups reported to the meeting room and saw us they went into defensive position.

Waller told them to relax.

The meeting started and she told them that they were to go on a mission to retrieve Grodd. She told them that Grodd had a mind control devise and asked them if they had their protective headbands prepared. They said that they did and she told them to go and get their groups ready and prepare to go into Sympa.

The next day, King Mikeal then took us into Sympa. The Ultimen followed us in and we all landed at the Sympa royal palace. Kal, Wally, and I took the leaders of the groups of Ultimen which came with us into the meeting with King Mikael’s generals to get the briefing about the mountains of Sympa.

The generals told us that as tough as it was to get Orm if would be even tougher to get to Grodd.

After the meeting, we all ate a rather large meal and went to bed. Before Clark and I went to bed, we met with the leaders of the groups of the Ultimen to start to plan for the attack.

After we woke up the next morning, we went to take off before we left, a Colonel Stephone came up and told us he was coming with us so he could help us with logistics.

We landed on the other side of the mountain on which the location of the village of where Grodd was hiding. We knew that we would likely have to fight through a series of villages. The reason for this is because the place where Grodd was located was at the top of a mountain that had a serious of villages they were using to protect where he was.

We exited the Javelin followed closely by the leadership of the Ultimen. Colonel Stephone took out a folding table and put a map on it.

He was starting to point out where the weak points of each village was and the Ultimen leaders were listening intently.

After about an hour of him pointing things out we all turned in for the night for it was late.

The next day we all got up, had our breakfast, and prepared to split into the groups that would attack the villages. It was agreed that I would go with Shifter and Downpour, Kal would go with juice and his group, and Flash, who was a late addition to the group, would be going with Wind Dragon.

The member of the Symba military, Colonel Stephone would stay back at base camp where he would coordinate the attacks.

There were four villages that were in front of the village where Grodd was and we were to take down those villages.

My group started our attack. It took us the better part of eight hours to capture our particular village. After we did we radioed Colonel Stephone to tell him that our part of the mission was done. He told us to stand fast. He said that he had radioed back to the palace and asked King Mikael to send a few brigades to help hold the villages and the king agreed.

We held fast and waited for the the soldiers to arrive. It took them another three hours to get there. When they did, we headed to the Grodd’s Roost.

We knew it was going to be a tough, long, hard, slog to get to Grodd. We knew that he would be well defended. This is why we knew it was a good idea that Stephone did what he did in radioing for the troops to help maintain the other villages.

It would not be until the next day when we would start our attack. The reason being that we felt that everyone deserved a good nights rest and a big meal before we would try and take Grodd.

The next day we started our attack and it was a long hard job. We were fighting through a bunch of clones and other criminals which were being controlled by Grodd.

We knew that we would have to get to his compound and to destroy the helmet he was using to do the controlling. It was a smart move for us to bring extra headbands, which we handed out to the troops that had come to hold the other villages.

I went to Wally and scooped him up. I flew to the roof of the most interior of the house. After I did this, I went to front yard started to take on the guards. I looked behind me and saw that Flash had found the skylight and was entering it.

Thirty minutes later the guards I was fighting suddenly dropped their weapons and surrendered. Ten minutes later Wally appeared and he had Grodd slung over his shoulder.

We took Grodd and the warlords back to King Mikeal.

On the way to the palace it was decided to tell the King he could have the warlords but it was generally agreed that it should not be possible for Grodd to stay in Symba. When we arrived back at the palace, we gave the king the news. To everyone’s surprised the agreed to the terms. He said that the reason for what he was doing was that he wants to get the warlords that were allied with Grodd in his jails and prisons because if he did not, it would be the best for Symba, Kasnia, and the rest of the world to get these warlords into prison.

So, Kal, Flash, the Ultimen, and I left to bring Grodd to be put on trial and try to put him in a place where he can not get out.

Before we brought him out, I had Flash radio Solovar to see about the investigation on how Grodd escaped. Solovar said that he and the security services of Gorilla City could not anyone from the interior of the society of Gorilla City. He had come to the conclusion that someone unknown was able to get into the city and getting Grodd the tools to, not only, get free but, to also, have the tools and abilities to produce the technology to put together the mind control helmet and computer to actually control the minds of the people.

We radioed to Barbara to have Dick call back to us. The problem is he is on a mission on the other side of the world and would not be back until late. I asked her why she was not with him and she said that she recently found she was pregnant.

We then radioed Dinah. The butler told us that she was on monitor duty. We called up to the Watchtower and asked her where Oliver was. She said that he was in a late night meeting and Queen Industries but she also said that he would be returning within the hour..

We went to Star City and landed in the back yard of Queen Manor. I had to laugh because it appears that he was still in competition with Bruce. Billionaire Boys and their toys.

When we landed, we found that the butler was waiting for us. It was obvious Dinah had called down and told the staff to expect us.

They brought us into the sitting room and we were told that Oliver would be home shortly.

We had been waiting for Oliver for an hour when Dinah entered the room. We all said hello.

She asked, “ Diana, what is this about?”

I said, “It is all about finding a way to keep Grodd incarcerated.”

At this point, Oliver walked in. He asked, “Clark, what is it that is needed?”

Clark said, “We are looking for a way to keep Grodd “Behind bars” which come short of me having to do one of the things that Bruce hated. He really disliked it when I used the Phantom Zone projector to send Doomsday to the Phantom Zone.”

Oliver said, “I think that I may have something for you but it still needs testing.”

We flash to go to Cadmus to pick up Waller and bring her to Queen industries so she could take a look at Oliver’s experimental system.

We went to Queen Industries to see it. By the time we arrived, we found Flash and Waller waiting for us.

Oliver took us in and showed it to us.

What it is, is this. This project is all about suspended animation. The criminal would be frozen and a force field will be put around it to protect it.

He looked at Kal and asked, “There are many unforgiving places on earth, Where is the most unforgiving place where a Cadmus facility is located?”

Waller said, “We have one somewhere around the south pole and one in northern Russia.”

Oliver said, “I think that as one of the security measures, there should be the lack of ability for the criminals which are still at large to be able to free their so-called leaders.”

Waller said, “I think that the best ideas is or facility of the south pole.”

He turned to Kal and asked, “Would it be possible for you to some of those robots which guard your fortress as guards for the for this new prison?”

Clark nods.

He asks the same of Waller and she says that Cadmus had some robots as well.

We also asked Waller about computer systems. We did this because we wanted another level of security.

We also told her that there should be a satellite stationed above the prison.

We also said that the Justice League wants access to the satellite and computer systems so we, too, could keep our eyes on the prison.

Over the last few weeks we had working hard to put together the prison down at the Cadmus facilities at the South Pole, it was an around the clock process on both Cadmus’s and Clark’s part. It was the truth because Clark had to spend a lot of his time at the Fortress programming the robots that he was going to send to the prison facility.

Clark had made the decision that he would take Sam, Ella, Balin, and Sarah to help him do this. A few days later, the decision was made that Balin, Sam, and Ella would be allowed join The Titans. The group would consist of The Arrow’s Voice (Deanna Queen), Probe (Hugo Sage), Magic Man (Brandon Zatara) , and Doctor Fate (Winifred Nelson). There are two others in the group. One is Rosalie Rivet. Rose as she is called, it Natasha Irons-Rivet’s daughter. The other is Sumner Kyle. He is known as The Cat.

Sam and Ella mad the decision to wear masks to they would not have to be like the dad and blend into the background.

Sam would wear a red uniform with yellow trunks, cape, “Z” , and a belt with red “S” surrounded with a red diamond on the blue buckle. His mask would match uniform. His name would be the Zealot.

Ella would wear a uniform similar to Kara, but different. Ella’s top would be yellow, her skirt and cape would be blue, her belt, “M”, mask, and belt would be red. The buckle of the belt would be Blue with the familiar superman symbol in red. Her name would be Madam Magnificent.

Sam is every bit as big as his father. He was not quite as developed as Kal.

Ella is a fine figure of a woman. She is as tall as I am and Vixen has said that Ella could be a model, if she wants to.

It is not Balin’s time to be Batman but only Clark and I know about the fact that he would eventually be Batman.

He had decided to take one of Bruce’s many suits of armor that Bruce had collected over the many years that I have known him. This particular suit or armor was of Greek. It came from time of the time of the battle at Thermopylae. It was what was called Hoplite armor and reminded me a great deal of the armor that the amazons wear. There were some additions and subtractions. He wanted to wear Kevlar to protect the parts of his arms and legs that were not covered with the armor itself. He wanted to go and see Hephaestus to see if Hephaestus would magically enhance the armor and the Kevlar. Balin also wants to have a special glove made that would an energy version of the Dory, which was the Hoplites spear. The suit of armor also had a shield called an aspis. It is twice the size of the one I have on the wall in my room at the farm. He would call himself the Hoplite.

We went to Themyscira and requested a meeting with Hephaestus. A few hours later, we were called to Io’s workshop. A few minutes after we arrived, Hephaestus appeared and we told him what we wanted to do with the armor. He said that it would take some time for him to do what we wanted.

We waited.

Twelve hours later, he appeared with the armor and said the job was done.

A couple of weeks later Balin was visiting with Ella and Sam. Sarah had chosen to go and visit with mother and the rest of her amazon sisters.

Sarah had, not only began her political career which would eventually lead her to be President of the United States and later Queen of the Amazons. She had also become quite a painter. She was equally adept in paining portraits, landscapes, and seascapes. She wanted to go to Themyscira and paint a portrait of mother. I had brought some of her paintings to show to some of our artisans. They could believe that such great are would come from some one so young. She wanted to paint a portrait of mother.

She understood that mother could not sit for a long time to because of her duties as the Queen so Sarah brought a camera top take a picture of mother.

Ella had decided she wanted to take Balin into Smallville to have some fun.

I said, “Yon know something, I need a break and I will come with you to find some relaxation.”

I said this because we had, had a hectic several months. I would have went with Sarah but I wanted to stay with or close to my other children so I decided to stay close to the farm.

We were walking through Smllville, when it happened. Metallo appeared. I was not sure how the Kryptonite in his chest would affect Sam and Ella. I knew it would not affect Balin or myself. Sam and Ella did what Clark does when he changes to his uniform.

When Hephaestus improved on the armor we brought to him, he gave Balin the same ability to do what I do when I change into my armor.

Ella and Sam tried to get close but they were weakened by the Kryptonite. I tried to fly at him but he caught my hands and threw me into the hardware store which destroyed the building and knocking me out.

When I woke up, I found that Metallo had been defeated. I looked in the middle of the street and saw that Balin’s shield was there while he, Sam, and Ella were talking to the police along with Waller some fifty feet away.

It took me a few seconds to put to together but I finally figured it out. The kryptonite that had been within Metallo was underneath Balins shield.

I few seconds later, I saw Waller walked over with a metal canister. Putting two and two together, the canister has to made of lead.

I walked over to the shield and asked Waller, “What do you want do with the kryptonite? “

She said, “here.” She handed me the canister which she had put the kryptonite in. She continued, “Give this to your husband when he returns. He knows what best to do with it.”

When we returned to the farm, I sent to Ella, Sam, and Balin in to check in on the other children and I went into the barn where I found the Kal had returned from his mission.

I said, “We just a pretty salty adventure.”

He said, “Explain.”

I said, “I will but here.”

I handed him the canister with the kryptonite in it.

He asked, “What is this?”

I said, “It is piece of kryptonite which was taken from Metallo.”

He took it to his version of the vault which is like the one in the Batcave. He would, later, bring it to the fortress where he would find a way to dispose of the rock.

When he returned, he said, “Please continue the story.”

I said, “Well, Balin had come over and Ella had decided to take him into Smallville to have some fun and I decided to go with them. As we were leisurely walk in the town. We started the tour and Metallo came and started to cause some mayhem.”

I told him about the children’s uniforms and how Lois’s children had decided to make the costumes colors. I also told him about Balin’s costume and what we had done to make his costume. I mentioned that is was one of Bruce’s many suits of armor which had been collected over Bruce’s lifetime.

I went on, “It took a few hours but we defeated him. I did not see the defeat because I was Knocked out. I would later find out that the kryptonite had affected Sam and Ella even though you had been inoculated them by injecting them like normal human would do with flu shots. When I woke up, I found that the kids had managed to get the kryptonite from Metallo, which was residing under Balin’s shield. That was when Waller, who had just arrived, walked over and took the krytonite and placed it in the lead canister which I just gave you.”

He asked me if the kids had made their reports and I said that I sent them in to check the children and to make their reports.

We walked in and you could have knocked Kal over with a feather when he saw Sam and Ella’s uniform. He recognized the colors but they set in different ways.

After he had recovered from what he considered as the garish nature of the costumes he walked over to them. They lifted their heads and he saw that they were wearing masks. I heard he ask about the masks. They told him what they told me. They said they did not want to wear the classes that Kal and I currently wear, at least when we are on earth.

After the kids had finished their reports and logged them into the justice system, they sat down and talked to Kal about their adventure.

After they talked about the adventure, Kal asked them about how they came up with their uniforms.

Sam and Ella looked at each other and same said, “We wanted to have our own names but to pay tribute to our Kryptonian heritage.”

He looked at them and asked, “What are your names?”

Sam said, “My name is the Zealot.”

Ella said, “Since I pay respect to our biological mother by looking like her, I wanted to, also, pay tribute to the person I consider as my second mother.

I looked at her and asked, “I am honored but how are you paying me tribute.

Ella said, “My hero name.”

I asked, “Madam Magnificent?”

Clark interrupted, “Honey, I deal with words all of the time. Her hero name is Madame Magnificent?”

I said, “Still not getting it.”

He said, “Madame is another word for woman and Magnificent is anther for wonder.”

I walked over to Ella and had tears in my eyes and hugged her.

I said, “I am very honored in the fact that you chose a suitable pseudonym for my hero name.”

Ella said, “I know that mom is my biological mother but, Diana, because I was so young when she died, you are the only mother that I have ever known.”

We talked until the quadruplets and Martha woke up. It was morning and it was time for breakfast.

Both Ella and Sam said that they wanted to Metropolis University to study journalism. This made Clark smile and he said, “Ella, Sam, your mother would be proud that you are planning to go into the same business that was so go to her for so long.”

We continued our talk and it turned to Clark’s being able to pay for their education.

I looked into Ella’s eyes and saw that she had something on her mind.

I asked, “What are you thinking about, Ella?”

She said, “I think that I wish to be closer to Sarah, I wish to change mind, I want to go to Gotham University.”

That surprised Clark. We would have to talk to Dick and Barbara about trying to get her into Gotham University.”

We made a call to the Manor and found that Barbara was there, we knew she was recently found to be pregnant.

We told her what was happening and she said she would talk to Dick and see what was happening.

A few days later we went to Gotham to talk with them, in person. When we arrived, we found that Sarah had returned from Themyscira and was lighting up the room. I could only think of one thing as to why. It had everything to do with the painting of mother which she recently completed.

She ran upstairs to get the painting. When she returned with it, she unveiled it at it was mother in all of her glory and beauty. I know that is sounds like I am complementing my daughter but I felt that it was one of the best paintings that I have ever seen. Sarah said that when she returned a few days ago, Dick took her to a museum and showed the curator the painting. Her eyes lit up and she said that the painting was every bit as good as any of the classics that were located in the Gotham Museum of Natural History.

At this point, Dick walks in. With him, he had a middle aged gentleman with him.

Dick said, “Ella, this is the head of the English Department at Gotham University and he wishes to interview you.”

After the kids had finished their reports and logged them into the justice system, they sat down and talked to Kal about their adventure.

After they talked about the adventure, Kal asked them about how they came up with their uniforms.

Sam and Ella looked at each other and same said, “We wanted to have our own names but to pay tribute to our Kryptonian heritage.”

Dick said, “Ella, this is the head of the English Department at Gotham University and he wishes to interview you.”

arrived back in Smallville to find that Kal had returned from doing his monitor duty. I walked in the kitchen.

The quads were there, are nine.

Martha was on her way home from school as well. She is seven.

Jonathan was being brought home by the Hubbards. Ben had recently passed on and his son, who, himself, was aging, loved to play with Jonathon. It seems that Jon had taken to farming and loved to play in the dirt. I, when I had the time, would go over to find Jon talking to Matt Hubbard about farming. I had a feeling that Jon would eventually follow Clark’s father into farming. Matt Hubbard is in his sixties. Jon is five.

Bruce is visiting with Dick, Barbara, and recent addition, Kara who, by the way, is one year old. We all knew why Barbara decided to name her this. It was because of her friendship with Kal's cousin.

Bruce is three.

My mother wanted to see the triplets, and sent Philppus to the farm with Epione to get them. Jimmy, Perry, and Jordan are one.

I heard the familiar sonic boom that accompanied Kal’s arrival or departure.

He walked into the Kitchen.

I had a sandwich while I waited for him to get comfortable.

He had taken to no rushing in cleaning himself up.

When he came back down I had sat the children, that were there, down to tell them the news.

Clark sat down and asked, “What is happening.”

I said, “Clark, kids, I have been offered a job at Gotham University.”

Clark asked, “Does Ella know?”

I answered, “She was there when the Chancellor offered the job and she said that she did not have any problem with it.”

Clark said, with a chuckle, “Diana, you know that Bruce, if here alive, would probably not allow it because of the way he felt about metas.”

I shook my head and laughed for I knew Bruce too well.

I went on to say that I would commuting to the Manor via that top of the Planet through the Watchtower.

He and the children congratulated me.
