4tmu.aresmush.com:1930 I was there when it started. So called age of heroes. When the Man of Steel showed himself for the first time, saved the titanic, and all those on her. When the world gained its first true hero, sum'in more'n man.
I watched as the first boots hit the ground running, The Mystery Men: protecting the innocents, or dyin' tryin'. They was trying to follow in his footsteps, even if no man truly could. Lotta good men died trying.
Read the papers, same as anyone, when the Great War broke out nation 'gence' nation, Brother 'gence' brother, slaughter on both sides. Every week some new super soldier, some new big weapon to end the war to end all wars.
Signed up first hand when the huns attacked New York, destroyed the statue of liberty, leveled the big apple. Day war came to us, with all its mustard gas and suits of powered armor..
Lost my boy to the first wave of "mutations" when the riots started. No one knew who started it, but we all got ideas. Just natural I guess.
By the time the fightin settled, home and abroad we had our 'victory'. At the cost of over half a billion young men, number most us didn't even know existed let alone how to cope with.
With so many people gone there was a lot of land up for grabs. Lot more food left to go round. It stopped the riots sure, but most the land what was left was just miles of No-mans Land, bombed out husks of buildings for miles in all directions worse still in places like Berlin, NYC and Paris, cities leveled to the ground.
The factories of war had already been cranked to overtime, and that didn't stop just for somethin' so silly as the end of the war. There was business to be had and it was boomin'. Entire cities where the smokestacks stretched for miles were bathed in an endless night the dense black smog a factories set about to rebuild tomorrow.
I was lucky just to have survived... most me anyway
Thought it was all over, that there weren't no help coming. Then sometin changed.
People like Howard Stark surprised us all, and showed us how we could be better. Those men built back New York City from the ground, into something new, something better. Over seas the League of Nations and their Justice Society were doing the same thing all across the world. Didn't want to believe it, but for the first time in a lifetime hope was back. Life seemed possible.
Nowadays, the embers of the great war are slowly dying out, and Heroes are almost as common a sight as the abandoned buildings where so many people once lived. Captain America, Spider-man, Batman, and even our own Man of Steel, Superman. All helping to make this city of ours work. Yet for every Batman there's a Joker, every Spider-man a Venom. More heroes we get, more villains tryin' to make their mark.
They're calling it the great party, greatest celebration after the war to end all wars. Feels a bit Strange in the light of it all, specially when prohibition says you can't even drink away your problems. It's a dark, and dangerous place, and you've got to ask yourself, "Can I even push back? Do I event want to?" 'nough to make a man crazy. Then you remember Folks like Luthor, and Richards, and you remember we've got The Worlds Finest.
