The GC52 Logo appears on televisions, computers, and all other types of viewing devices at its normally scheduled time. Lead Anchor Dan McMahon sits at his news desk, ice clinking as he swirls his ice tea on his desk. The setting sun sparkles off the crown jewel of the City of Tomorrow in the background. The GC52 intro music begins to dim as the actual program begins as Dan turns to the camera with a smile on his face.

My sworn enemy and noted meninist Dr. Cizko is back in the news with his new “Man-ifest” campaign. Even if he is trying to build up some sort of weird incel group of villains to work alongside him, he has to know he’s just going to end up getting the atomic wedgie of justice for the millionth time, right? He’s an absolute loser with no respect for anyone but his inflated ego inside his inflated blimp of a head. I don’t even care if he can use his mental powers to hurt me, I just think someone needs to give that loser a swirly. Maybe Steve Trevor and Siggy could get on that. They are roommates now from what I am hearing. Maybe they will become BEST FRIENDS like Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy were. I think I heard Steve mention teaching Siggy how to tie a tie at our last Checkmate conference. I wonder if it was around his neck or the door handle… ANYWAY… Adam, what’s going on with you?

The video feed cuts to show Adam standing in front of a hastily constructed car memorial.

Adam: Today is a sad day in Gotham as we mourn the sacrifice of one of our greatest heroes. As Spellbinder, Tutor and their mind control army tried to make their final play on the city of Gotham remaking it however Spellbinder wished. Like all good villains with a literally captive audience, Spellbinder took his time to explain his master plan to his prisoner, his maybe ex-girlfriend Barbara Gordon. Using a special memory-based Fear Gas formula, Spellbinder was painting portraits of his targets and using subliminal messaging in Tutors streams to control them.  

Meanwhile, the scary Batgirl earned her nickname by taking out an entire horde of mind-controlled goons and saving the life of GC52s own Grace O’Halloran while the purple Batgirl faced off against Tudor himself. Barbara Gordon managed to overpower Spellbinder and thanks to the assistance of Gotham’s own Oracle, revealed his plan and identity to the world. The two Batgirls managed to wrap up their fight with Tudor and his many minions, but not before he left a surprise.  A bomb big enough to devastate a city block. Only one choice remained as the purple Batgirl loaded up the Batgirls ride, Bondo, and floored it to get the bomb to a safe distance. As the bomb detonated with no civilian casualties, the city of Gotham felt the loss of a true hero as the great Bondo was taken from us.  

A memorial montage of Bondo shots appears on the screen behind Adam.

Adam: Both Batgirls’ lives will never be the same without their ride. As the one song Bondo could play often said:

“Well, the years start comin’ and they don’t stop comin’
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground runnin’
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb”

Adam: So true Bondo. May you rest in peace. Back to you Dan.

Dan’s voice is heard over the continuing Bondo montage.

Dan: Thanks for that touching tribute Adam. We’ve now got a live report from that ferret. God help us.

The camera cuts to a bright and cloudless day in Blüdhaven, as it overlooks Richard Grayson’s first Haven center to help the homeless of the city. Live on the scene are fur missile in a real missile, Mr. Tubes, and the ghostly Gothamite, Zeb the Ghostboy! The pair stands in front of the statue of Alfred Pennyworth.

Mr. Tubes: It nice day. Haven now open for people who need a place and it all thanks to Mr. Grayson. 

Zeb: LOOK IT’S MR. GRAYSON AND WHO’S THAT WITH HIM? 

The ferret begins to tap away at his mech’s keyboard to check facial recognition software.

Tubes: Bruce Wayne and Barbara Gordon. 

Zeb: My dad said that Bruce Wayne wasn’t too bad a guy, but that he never understood the working man’s plight. It is a shame what Uncle Joe did to him. And Barbara Gordon she’s like related to big Jim Gordon. WAIT HOLD ON LOOK THAT GUY’S SELLING CHURROS!

Zeb flew to the food truck as the GC52 Camera mounted into Tubes’s mech trains itself as Mayor Zucco and Blockbuster approached the trio! 

Tubes: Hel….

Before Tubes could approach the quintet Zeb flies back over extra excited!

Zeb: LOOK IT’S SUPERMAN! LET’S GO TALK TO HIM! 

The pair approach Jon Kent as he’s signing autographs and Zeb begins to fly circles around the young hero! 

Zeb: SUPERMAN SUPERMAN WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE ABLE TO SEE THROUGH EVERYTHING!?! CAN YOU SEE THROUGH ME?!?

Tubes: Zeb see through already.

Superman: Yeah, looks like you have powers yourself. Haha, I see you have a camera so let’s get a picture. 

The three took a picture and the reporters forgot to follow up on why Blockbuster was there. Or to even report that the dangerous Heartless killer is still on the loose. The feed cuts out before returning to Dan in the studio.

Dan: It’s almost come to the point where this Shadow War between the League and Deathstroke Inc. has come to light. With people like Black Canary nearly getting involved, it’s not long now till things blow up in Nepal. We have heard from Batman’s former BEST FRIEND  Ghostmaker who took Clownhunter under his wing after the Fear State. It seems like Clownhunter can now take 5 out of 6 ninjas all by himself! If you put him up against those 4 out of 5 dentists who agree on toothpaste, I think he’d have the same odds! But they also are getting involved with this whole nightmare. 

So is our good friend Harley Quinn who fought a bunch of ninjas in an Arcade but our camera feed got cut out from there… as if someone else was watching her as well. It couldn’t be to set up some sort of event later this summer… Anyway…

As always; be it the Bat-Symbol in Gotham, a red streak through Central City, or a golden lasso on Themyscira… GC52 has you covered with the news you need to know. ‘Till next week, I’m your host Dan McMahon. Be strong in all your convictions.
