Ficlet: Opening Moves (JL, PG13, Prompt #20: Reflection)

Title: Opening Moves
Fandom: DC
Prompt: #20, Reflection
Word Count: A hundred.
Rating: PG13
Disclaimer: DC owns all characters involved.
Summary: You don't ignore pain. You use it.


He had trained himself to defeat teams, as he had trained himself to defeat everything else. It required a combination of experience, advance planning, and ruthless execution.

He couldn't defeat the Justice League without inside help; should he need to engage them, he would require a traitor in their midst, somebody familiar with their tactics and capabilities.

And the most logical choice was himself.

Batman opened a comm line to League headquarters. "I'm in." Clark would certainly misjudge his motivations. Diana probably wouldn't. Both facts were irrelevant.

As irrelevant and familiar as the uneasy taste of ashes in his mouth.
