Just some fan fiction which if I finish I might try to pitch to DC comics. It is just an else worlds story where Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman are the only super heroes who all perished saving the world from a threat, leaving the world without defenders. But unknown to the world they had children. Ken Kent, son of superman and Louis Lane, is human with no super powers lives in Smallville with Ma Kent which he promised himself he would only leave if he can fly. Denise Trevor, daughter of Wonder Woman and pilot Steve Trevor, is a fighter pilot who cares about her grief stricken father. Last is Ben Wayne, son of Batman and a mother he tries to forget, who is determined to escape being Batman and only cares about preserving the Wayne legacy. This will be more character oriented and is about three decent but fundamentally flawed characters.

Issue 1: Even Legends End

EXT. Washington d.c.   dawn

Panel 1: An image of a crowd of people standing behind a police barricade. The police officers on one side in uniform have removed their hats and lower their heads. The citizens of D.C. who stand behind the barricade all seem solemn. The scene is presented as very somber.

narrator

Right now on Earth two funerals are taking place.

Panel 2: An image of a street in Washington leading up to the capitol building at dawn as the sun rises behind the scene. Along the sides of the street behind the barricades are the crowds, to the other side the police. On the street, three caskets pulled by horses pass the crowd. Over the scene jet fly through the sky leaving contrails.

narrator

At one funeral, the people of one city as the whole world watches lay to rest three icons, three legends, three heroes. And they realize that even legends die.

Panel 3: Now in front of a stage in front of the capitol building are the caskets and the crowds. Standing on the stage are world leaders, men and woman across the globe in suits. Standing in the middle is the President, an older man with silver hair who faces the crowd.

NARRATOR

But even when legends are laid to rest, their stories become legends themselves.

Panel 4: An image of the President facing the crowd and the caskets, all the world leaders standing at his sides.

the president

Our city, our country and the world has come together to lay to rest three heroes. We all mourn. Two weeks ago when our entire planet was face a threat that would end our world, end us all; as heroes must they gave their lives for what was right. I know we are all scared, because three extraordinary defenders are gone.

Panel 5: One casket is revealed, on it is the insignia of Superman.

THE PRESIDENT

One who was a last of a people who came to Earth with the power of a God yet only used the power to protect, who used that power with humility and restraint. Who called humanity his own.

Panel 6: Another casket is revealed, on it is the insignia of Wonder Woman.

THE PRESIDENT

Another of who was raised as a warrior on an island yet came to our shores and fought for a people who in the beginning where not her own.

Panel 7: The last casket on which is the insignia of Batman.

THE PRESIDENT

And last, someone who made criminals fear the night yet who did not show their lack of respect for our laws. Who was human like any of us, but showed us all that we could be a hero to.

Panel 8: The president and the world leaders facing the crowd.

THE PRESIDENT

Now three legends are gone and now we feel afraid of what would happen if another threat should come again like the one they gave their lives to save us from. All I can say if that day should come, then we must show the strength they did. And though they are now gone, we will not waste the second chance they gave us. Now, let's not waste it. I think they deserve a not a moment of silence but an entire day.

Panel 9: An image of the crowd, all the people lower their heads. Some seem stoic, others seem afraid while a few others shed a few tears.

NARRATOR

But like anyone, sometimes legends give birth to those who are either chosen or cursed to carry mantles that they fear that are unworthy, unsure or afraid to have placed on their shoulders.

EXT. smallvillenoon

Panel 1: In the distance is Smallville, a small town in Middle America which seems like something out of a Capra film. It is surrounded by farmsteads and fields. The sun hangs over the town.

Panel 2: On main street Smallville, a funeral parlor sits among several businesses as a truck rumbles by on the street. Parked in front of the building is a large black limousine.

INT. smallville funeral parlor  seconds later

Panel 1: A large room. There are two rows of empty chairs and a isle between them. Three young adults stand in front of three caskets and seem expressionless. To the left is Ken Kent, a young man with a muscular stature who has short dark hair, square jaw and wears a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and jeans. In the middle is Denise Trevor, a young woman with short dark hair who is subtly attractive and is wearing an Air Force Uniform. And to the right is Ben Wayne, a young man with slicked back blond hair, angular features who seems athletic and is wearing a black suit and sunglasses. The three of them look solemnly at the caskets.

NARRATOR

Three friends have gathered to lay to rest three individuals. And no one suspects that these three recently departed are three legends.

Panel 2: Ken looks at the one casket, behind him is the insignia of Superman.

NARRATOR

Panel 5: Looking at the three of them from behind as they look at the caskets.

NARRATOR

Three children of legends, and now they must choose if they want to have the mantle of these legends placed upon them.

Panel 6: Ben looking at Denise and Ken beside him, Ben has a cocky smile on his face while the other two seem somber.

Ben Wayne

This might be an inappropriate time, but is anyone in Smallville going to be suspicious that one of the richest men in America in being buried here in the sticks?

denise Trevor

Do you have to be a jackass at this moment Ben?

BEN WAYNE

Denise, I'm just saying that it is a little suspicious that Bruce Wayne is being buried in Smallville.

Panel 7: Denise and Ben are both looking at Ken who still looks solemnly at the casket.

DENISE TREVOR

You know why Ken can't leave Smallville which is why our parents wanted to be laid to rest here.

BEN WAYNE

I know, he'll only leave Smallville if he can fly away like his father. To bad old, simple Ken here can't fly.

ken Kent

Like I told you two that first summer we spent together as kids, I will someday.

Panel 8: Ben shrugs as Denise still looks at Ken.

BEN WAYNE

Best buddy, we are close. And I can honestly say that day is not coming anytime soon.

DENISE TREVOR

Ken, you might not be like your father, it does not mean you can't be a good man like he was.

BEN WAYNE

He is half a man, the other half is alien. To bad that half was not more pronounce buddy.

Panel 9: The three of them return to looking at the caskets in silence solemnly.

Panel 10: A close of image of Ben, who smirks.

BEN WAYNE

Well Ken. I'm off to being a billionaire playboy again who now runs one of the most powerful companies in the country. Denise here is back to being one of the most respected fighter pilots in the Air Force.

Panel 11: Ben looks a Ken who is behind Denise.

BEN WAYNE

And Ken goes back to being a simple farm boy. I don't know which is more depressing, the funeral or that my best friend here is back to shoveling mule dung.

Panel 12: Ken and Denise look at Ben and our frowning as he grins.

DENISE TREVOR

Ben, you are the last guy anyone would want at a funeral.

BEN WAYNE

Denise, I'm trust trying to prove that all that stuff your mother probably told you about how males are all inherently stupid and flawed was not wrong.

KEN KENT

Of the two men here, yeah Ben, he proves that she was probably right. And I'm not talking about me.

Panel 13: The three of them are looking at each other in silence with blank expressions on their face.

Panel 14: Then the three of them break out into laughter.

EXT. road out of smallvilledusk

Panel 1: A dirt road with fields of wheat to either side leading out of Smallville, in the distance is the small town as sun sinks behind it. The long, black limousine drives away from the town as it kicks up and cloud of dust.

INT. inside limousineseconds later

Panel 1: Inside the limousine is several leather seats and a bar to one side. Denise sits beside Ken, and she looks at him as he looks solemnly out the window beside him. Ben sits next to the bar as holds a glass of scotch and he looks at the two of them as he grins.

BEN WAYNE

So what is next for the super buddies?

DENISE TREVOR

I'm going to Metropolis to see my father, then back to my post in the Air Force.

KEN KENT

Guess I'll spend a few days comforting Ma Kent, and then get ready for the harvest.

Panel 2: Ben is lifting the glass of scotch as is about to drink from the glass.

BEN WAYNE

We'll, you both know what my father wanted me to do. Last year I took this Russian super model on a skiing trip to Aspen and ran into this nasty badger and it gave me an idea. Guess soon in Gotham there will be some guy dressed up as a giant badger beating the tar out of criminals.

Panel 3: Denise looks at Ben as Ken still looks out the window. Ben is drinking from the glass.

DENISE TREVOR

Ben, really, what are you going to do now that your father is gone?

KEN KENT

You know how he is Denise, he could care less about his father's legacy.

Panel 4: Ben frowns as he looks down at the glass of scotch.

BEN WAYNE

It is the Wayne legacy I care about, not the legacy of the Batman. There is a smarter way to protect Gotham then dressing up as a flying rodent. Besides old Alfred is the one who raised me, you both know I barely knew my real father.

Panel 5: Ben lifts the glass of scotch and looks at it in his hand as Ken and Denise sit in the back of the limousine.

BEN WAYNE

What about you two, how is the rest of the super buddies going to carry on their parent's legacy?

DENISE TREVOR

I don't know, I'm not sure I am the same woman as my mother. Maybe I'll just worry about my post in the Air Force.

BEN WAYNE

Denise, me and simple Ken here are just your plain old humans. But you always seem to be pretty vague on just how much you are like your mother.

Panel 6: Denise looks at Ken sitting beside her who still solemnly looks out the window at the countryside passing by.

DENISE TREVOR

What about you Ken, how are you going to carry on your father's legacy?

KEN KENT

I'm not my father, and I'll never be able to make him proud of me.

DENISE TREVOR

Your father would be proud no matter what you choose to do with your life Ken.

Panel 7: Ben speaks right before he drinks from the glass.

BEN WAYNE

What a crew the three of us. The son of a god who feels like a failure because he is just some lowly mortal. The daughter of an Amazon warrior who prefers being a pilot then a Amazon deity.

Panel 8: Ken and Denise look at Ben as he drinks from the glass.

DENISE TREVOR

And the son of the caped crusader who does everything he can to be nothing like his father.

KEN KENT

Guess they would be ashamed with us three. We'll never be like them, no matter how much we want to.

Panel 9: Ben lowers the glass and looks at it as he frowns.

BEN WAYNE

Speak for yourself Kenny boy. You two want to be like them, me; well I'll do everything to forget about who my father wanted me to be. It's my life, not his and I am the one who chooses how I live it.

EXT. Kent farmdusk

Panel 1: The dirt road is in the forefront of the image, the limousine is parked near a dirt driveway, at the end of which is the Kent farm. There is a large farm house, a red barn and a grain silo. It is surrounded by a white picket fence and the sun is sinking behind the house. Ken and Ben walk down the driveway side by side.

BEN WAYNE

As usual, Denise we'll let the two men have a moment alone to speak before we part ways.

KEN KENT

Ma Kent probably needs some company right now. She is hurting right now.

BEN WAYNE

What about you Ken? Are you hurting right now?

Panel 2: They stand on the driveway and look at each other. Ben has a blank expression on his face while Ken seems solemn.

BEN WAYNE

Sorry about you mother Ken. Guess that is the problem of being married to a god who makes you feel like the most privileged woman on Earth. Once he is gone, well, what do you got left other then being boringly ordinary?

KEN KENT

Ben, that is one thing I never want to talk about with you or anybody.

BEN WAYNE

Ken, call me if you need anything; and I mean anything. Being best friends with one of the richest men in America has its perks Ken, which you'll find out in the coming years.

Panel 3: Ken watches as Ben walks away, down the driveway towards the waiting limousine.

BEN WAYNE

Now, guess I'll give Denise a lift to Metropolis on my private jet then back to Gotham.

KEN KENT

Ben, before you go can I ask you something?

Panel 4: Ben looks over his shoulder at Ken.

BEN WAYNE

What buddy?

Panel 5: Ken then walks away towards the farmhouse and Ben watches.

KEN KENT

I'll ask you some other time. See you around Ben.

Panel 6: Ken walks towards the farmhouse, in the distance behind him the limousine drives away kicking up a cloud of dust.

Panel 7: On the porch of the farmhouse is an old dog with a red bandanna around the dogs neck. The dog is asleep. Beside the dog is a rocking chair and behind the sleeping mutt is a screen door.

Panel 8: Ken walks up onto the porch, the dog is awake a looks up at him.

KEN KENT

Go back to sleep girl.

Panel 9: Ken opens the screen door and is walking into the house as the dog is sleeps again.

INT. farm houseseconds later

Panel 1: In a hallway of the house, which is decorated in a way that seems old fashioned and misplaced, Ma Kent stands on a chair and is replacing a light bulb in a ceiling light fixture. Ma Kent is an elderly woman with silver hair, she wears a faded blue dress and has glasses.

Panel 2: Ma Kent loses balance and is falling off the chair.

ma Kent

Oh dear!

Panel 3: Ma Kent falls from the chair, Ken is at the end of the hallway and is sees her fall.

Panel 4: Ma Kent falls into Kent's arms.

Panel 5: Ken puts Ma Kent down and now they are facing each other in the hallway.

MA KENT

Just like your father, always there to catch you when you fall.

KEN KENT

Ma, just relax; let the young guy take care of things around here.

Panel 6: Ma Kent walks down the hallway as Ken follows.

MA KENT

Don't treat me like some old biddy you can't do anything.

KEN KENT

I'm just going to treat like a woman who deserves to rest.

MA KENT

I'm not useless yet Ken.

Panel 7: In the a large kitchen which like the hallway is decorated in a fashion which seems antiquated, Ken and Ma sit at a table across from each other and have a meal on a plate in front of them. Ken is looking at her while she eats.

KEN KENT

Are you going to be Okay?

MA KENT

Ken, you are the one I'm worried about.

KEN KENT

What do you mean?

Panel 8: A close up image of Ma's face, there is the reflection of Ken in her glasses, a single tear runs down her cheek.

MA KENT

Just like your father, a heart big enough to care for the entire world. And since you where a boy, I know your heart breaks a little bit more everyday because you can't protect it like he did.

Panel 9: Ken lifts the food to his mouth with a fork as Ma looks at him.

KEN KENT

Guess I'll just worry about you and this farm.

MA KENT

You may not have the gifts your father had Ken, but it does not mean you can't be a hero like him.

KEN KENT

I can't be like him, no matter how much I wan to. Guess the only way I'll make him proud is by making sure the woman who raised him is happy.

Panel 10: Ma Kent looks at Ken as he chews his food.

MA KENT

Are you happy Ken? Because that is whose happiness you should be most worried about.

Panel 11: Ken and Ma look at each other in silence in the kitchen.

EXT. the cliffnight

Panel 1: The dog sits on a patch of grass, the scene is darkened, the dog looks at something which is not revealed.

Panel 2: There is a cliff on the Kent farm, it looms over the ground far below, in the distance is the farm and it sits under a star filled sky and a crescent moon. Ken stands on the edge of the cliff and looks at the ground far below, the dog sits nearby and looks at Ken.

NARRATOR

This cliff is where once a man learned to fly. Who wanted to test how invulnerable he was and leaped from this precipice and learned that unlike mortals, gravity had no power over him.

Panel 3: Ken looks over the edge of the cliff at the rocky ground far below.

NARRATOR

His son, every night since he learned that his father could fly, comes to this cliff knowing that one day he will leap from it like his father did. And either he will learn to fly like his father or will fall to his death.

Panel 4: Ken stands on the edge of the cliff and looks up into the sky, behind him is the darkened silhouette of Superman though the S on the chest of the shadow is red.

NARRATOR

With each day the passes, his urge to leap from this precipice grows and his will holding him back becomes weaker. And when he does, he will either fly away from his simple life or let gravity ensure his end.

Panel 5: Ken walks away from the cliff towards the farm as the dog follows.

NARRATOR

Every waking moment of his life, this cliff beckons to him. And its call grows louder with every passing day. For now, he returns to his life and denies that call.

EXT.  metropolisnight

Panel 1: In the distance is the city of Metropolis sitting under a night sky full of stars and the moon. The city seems futuristic and seems to gleam in the light of the moon.

Panel 2: A street on Metropolis. Denise walks down the sidewalk as cars pass by, to her other side is apartment buildings which have futuristic architecture.

Panel 3: Denise is walking up the steps of an apartment building as pedestrians walks past on the sidewalk.

INT. apartment of Steve Trevor  seconds later

Panel 1: The image of the top of a coffee table. On its is the front page of a news paper; an issue of Daily Planet with the headline, "Wonder Woman Saves The City Again." To one side of the news paper is a ashtray with a burning cigarette in it as smoke wafts up from it, to the other side is a half empty bottle of vodka.

Panel 2: A close up image of a man's face, Steve Trevor; he is older with blond hair with streaks of gray in it; he is unshaven and seems grief stricken.

Panel 3: The front door to the apartment opened as Denise enters, it is revealed that the apartment is gloomy and has clothes and garbage strewn everywhere. Denise is looking at Steve, who is in a bathrobe, as he sits on a couch and looks down at the coffee table as he sheds tears.

DENISE TREVOR

Thought I would see how you where doing dad before I report back to duty.

Steve Trevor

I killed her.

Panel 4: Denise stands near Steve and looks at him as he looks at the newspaper before him.

DENISE TREVOR

What do you mean?

STEVE TREVOR

If I had left her on that island, left her where she belonged she would still be alive. I killed the woman I loved.

Panel 5: Denise solemnly looks at Steve.

DENISE TREVOR

Dad, she did what she always did. Saved others, this time she saved everybody. We should be proud of her.

STEVE TREVOR

I buried your mother, I'm not going to bury you to Denise.

DENISE TREVOR

What are you talking about?

Panel 6: Steve, tears streaming from his eyes looks at Denise who looks back at him with a blank expression.

STEVE TREVOR

Your father is going to ask you to make a promise, the only one he will ever ask and you are going to keep it.

DENISE TREVOR

Anything dad.

STEVE TREVOR

You will never be your mother, you will never do what she did and risk your life for others. Just be a pilot, nothing else.

Panel 7: A close up image of Denise's face, she is frowning.

DENISE TREVOR

Dad, I'm not sure I can make that promise.

Panel 8: An image of the grief stricken Steve on the couch looking at Denise.

STEVE TREVOR

If you care about your father, then you'll make sure that Diana will be the last woman he loved that he will have to bury.

DENISE TREVOR

Dad, I don-

STEVE TREVOR

Promise me Denise!

EXT.  METROPOLISseconds later

Panel 1: Denise walks down the front steps of the apartment building, she seems glum.

NARRATOR

A woman with the heart of a warrior now faces a life where she will try to deny that heart's nature.

Panel 2: Denise stands on the sidewalk and looks at something across the street which is not revealed.

NARRATOR

But a heart that calls out for her to give into her warrior nature and fight for others who are threatened.

Panel 3: Denise looks at an old woman in a dress being mugged at gun point by a large man in black clothes across the street.

NARRATOR

She can hear that heart beckon to her. A heart that urges her to fight.

Panel 4: A close up image of Denise's hand, it is clenched into a fist.

NARRATOR

How long can she fight her nature, how long can she ignore what her heart screams into her ear right now or anytime the world is silent?

Panel 5: Denise watches as the mugger runs away with the old woman's purse after knocking her to the ground. Behind her is the darkened silhouette of Wonder Woman, though there is a golden W on the chest of the shadow.

NARRATOR

Now she fights, not against others by against her own nature. A nature that she will try to repress.

Panel 6: Denise walks away down the sidewalk in the city under the night sky.

NARRATOR

Who is someone when they deny their nature, what identity do they have when they must be deaf to what their heart says? Now she wonders who she is and what is in her future.

EXT. Gothamdawn

Panel 1: In the distance is the city of Gotham as the sun rises behind the city. The city seems gloomy and run down, with decrepit buildings and litter strewn streets.

Panel 2: The sports car is parked in front of the looming mansion, and Ben is getting out.

Panel 3: Ben looks to a large stone mausoleum near the mansion across the lawn, over the looming entrance engraved over the stone is the name, "Wayne."

INT. Wayne mausoleumseconds later

Panel 1: Inside the darkened mausoleum Alfred stands and looks down at two stone caskets. Alfred is an elderly gentleman wearing the uniform of a butler, he seems dignified and seems stoic. Ben is walking up behind him.

BEN WAYNE

The one of the few times I actually got the privilege to talking to Bruce, he said you where getting on years when he was a kid; and since you where not a young man when I was a boy, what are you now Alfred, two hundred?

Alfred

See you have returned from Smallville master Wayne.

Panel 2: Ben and Alfred stand side by side as they look down at the caskets.

BEN WAYNE

Alfred, there is only two reasons why you would end up unemployed. One is if you misplace my favorite argyle socks. Two is if you ever call me master Wayne again.

ALFRED

I see master Wayne, still the little boy who when he is either afraid, sad or angry hides behind the disguise of the arrogant playboy.

Panel 3: Ben looks at Alfred who still looks down at the caskets.

BEN WAYNE

Well, the arrogant playboy has been on the phone with Lucius Fox at Wayne Industries. Since every costumed maniac in Gotham is locked up in Arkham, Wayne Tech is about to sink a hundred million dollars into security for the freak asylum to makes sure they never get out and threaten the people of Gotham again.

ALFRED

Is that all master Wayne?

Panel 4: A close up image of Ben's face as he looks solemnly at the caskets.

BEN WAYNE

No. Lucius is going to start manufacturing gadgets out of that little department he ran for my father and we are going to outfit the Gotham Police Department with the best gear in the country, of course no bat theme. Gotham is going to be a safe city again, and it will be the Wayne family who gets the credit, not the Batman.

Panel 5: Alfred looks at Ben who still looks down at the caskets.

ALFRED

And what of your father's wishes, that his son should protect Gotham like he did?

BEN WAYNE

I'll do that was a Wayne, not as a masked vigilante. Now I'm going down to the cave, and tomorrow we are going to seal up every entrance; and my father's ghost can rest finally.

Panel 6: Ben is walking out of the mausoleum and Alfred looks over his shoulder at him depart.

BEN WAYNE

I'm going to make my real father proud.

ALFRED

He would have been proud of you master Wayne, regardless if you choose to carry his mantle or not.

BEN WAYNE

I'm not talking about the Batman or Bruce Wayne, but the guy who raised me.

Panel 7: Ben looks at Alfred and is frowning.

BEN WAYNE

You'll be proud of me Alfred, I promise And this master Wayne is going to make Gotham safer then his biological father ever did, as a Wayne and not as a bat.

ALFRED

I hope you are right.

Panel 8: Ben then walks out of the mausoleum as Alfred returns to looking down at the caskets.

BEN WAYNE

Now I'm going down to the cave, fortunately I've had my rabies shots. And after, now one will ever be down there again. Only the ghost of the Batman.

INT. the bat cavelater

Panel 1: Beneath Wayne manor is a gigantic cave that is gloomy. The Bat mobile, a black sleek car, sits on the edge of a platform beneath which is an abyss that seems bottomless. Nearby is a large computer built into a wall of the cave. Standing nearby is a life size animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex which is motionless. Ben stands on the edge of the platform and looks at several bats fly past him.

BEN WAYNE

Guess this is where I finally can tell you something that you needed to hear dad; something Alfred, Commissioner Gordon or anyone else in Gotham was ever smart enough to put together. It was all your fault.

NARRATOR

Now a young man comes to speak to a ghost, a ghost he hopes he can seal in this place so it can no longer haunt him.

Panel 2: Ben looks down into the darkness of the abyss as a single bat flies past.

BEN WAYNE

Before the Batman, how many masked lunatics where their in Gotham? You always where a magnet for men like the Joker. Dad, would men like him ever had terrorized Gotham had the Batman not existed.

NARRATOR

A ghost who always made him afraid, a ghost he now believes he can escape by trapping it in here to be forgotten.

Panel 3: Ben looks at a bat fly past as he frowns, behind him is the darkened silhouette of Batman; though the symbol of a bat is on the chest of the shadow.

BEN WAYNE

I'm going to protect Gotham from what you started, and I'll do that as a Wayne and not as a vigilante. So you can rest, because in a year Gotham will be the safest place in the country and it will stay that way.

NARRATOR

This young man hopes that this ghost which has always haunted him is listening so he can know that it will be finally put to rest.

Panel 4: Ben then walks to the stone stairs that lead up out of this cavern, now many bats fly about in the air.

BEN WAYNE

Because, for men like the Joker and the rest of his insane ilk, well; the party is over in Gotham. Goodbye Dad, and farewell.

NARRATOR

If that ghost was listening and could see what lay ahead for this man and Gotham, then he would be afraid. For this young man will one day destroy a legacy, and would have made that ghost ashamed.

Split panel

Panel 1: A panel split into three parts. To the left is Ken on the edge of the cliff, in the middle is Denise walking down a sidewalk in Metropolis and in the right is Ben walking up the stairs out of the cave.

NARRATOR

Three legends have been laid to rest this day, now what comes is the aftermath of such legends. And legends sometimes begin with optimism but end with tragedy. And these three do not suspect how much tragedy lays in their future.
