Titans West: Chaos Comes To Call pt 8
- "Fine. Your silence means you die!" Kestrel
stated as he plunged his claws forward. Two white gloved
hands grabbed his moving wrist and tossed him to the
side. The villain flipped and landed on his feet, ready
for action. <br><br>Standing between Kestrel and his
prey was the blue and white costumed Dove. "Don't you
lay another hand on him," she said.<br><br>Kestrel
didn't look too surprised. "I knew you'd show up sooner
or later. In fact, I was expecting you. Where there
is one, there usually is the other." <br><br>"Who
are you?" Dove asked.<br><br>"My name is Kestrel,"
the man in purple and black said. "I'm here for Hawk,
to give him an offer that cannot be refused. I want
him to embrace chaos and be my partner."<br><br>"Hawk
already has partners, mister!" a voice from above said.
Kestrel turned in time to be hit with dual bio-blast
stings from the flying black and yellow costumed
Bumblebee.<br><br>Kestrel laughed off the blasts like they were from a
small insect. "Well, well," he said. "It must be ladies
night." The villain leapt up and grabbed the heroine by
the leg, pulling her down to the ground with ease.
"Don't tell me, Hawk, that you have to have mere women
fight your battles for you." <br><br>"Nothing mere
about me," the Bumblebee said as she blasted Kestrel
directly in the face at full power. While the villain
screamed out in pain and surprise, the heroine had time to
roll out and away.<br><br>"You'll pay for that,
witch!" Kestrel exclaimed. "But you're not on the top of
my list." When his vision cleared, he turned back to
his prey who was no longer pinned under the car. Hawk
was free thanks to an assist by Dove. The duo stood
ready for action.
- BTW, if we ever do a Secret Origin story for the Supergirl of the future, it is worth noting that in her Louise-L identity, Supergirl wears a short black wig, while her friend Lydia-T has shoulder-length blonde hair and looks identical to Lena Thorul. It seemed evident to me that Louise-L could easily have been a false identity, since she obviously wasn't born as a brunette. This begs the question -- what is the birth-name of Louise-L/Lydia-7, and what became of her parents? And is her birth-name a Kryptonian or Rokynian name?

In her memory, I have abandoned my old Louise-L identity which was merely a false name, much like your Supergirl's identity of Linda Lee Danvers and have adopted the new name of Lydia-7."
