But a Dream: Part 1
- �All that we see or seem<br>Is but a dream within
a dream.�<br>�Edgar Allan Poe, A Dream Within A
Dream<br><br><br>Alexander Luthor suddenly awoke, beads of sweat trickling
down his forehead. He looked around himself in a panic
and searched for his wife, Lois. She was right next
to him, sound asleep. Memories of death and some
kind of white wall of energy quickly fleeted from his
waking mind more quickly than he could remember them.
Lois was safe and sound, though. She was all that
mattered. She and their son... their son!<br><br>Alex
jumped out of bed and raced towards the crib their
newborn son had been kept in, but he was gone. And
somehow he knew that Alexander Jr. would not be found
again even before he saw it for himself.<br><br>Luthor
fell to his knees and began to weep. Everything was
wrong. So wrong.
- Ringmaster was the E-3 version of the Flash (Flash 261) villain of the same name. Not very creative of me to have used exact same names for A. Bug, Onyx, and Ringmaster for E-3 counterparts but they were just names and made no real appearances in the story.
