Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BatJamags, and I’m back for our oneshot break from The Red Queen. Today, we’ll be looking at another oneshot from the Justice League section. Let’s have a peak at the summary, shall we?

Stop the Creeper, Batman.

Ah, the Creeper is an interesting character.

Jeepers!

Jack Ryder is an obnoxious talk show host who got doused with chemicals or something (he’s one of those characters whose origin gets changed every five seconds), started dressing in one of the DC Universe’s more ridiculous costumes, and became essentially a good (?) version of the Joker. He runs around laughing maniacally (a laugh which may or may not be supernaturally discomforting or outright painful), having super strength and agility, beating up bad guys, and generally being a walking acid trip. He shows up sporadically in stuff, usually as a supporting character for Batman. His most notable appearance was in Batman: The Animated Series, where he was so nuts that the Joker of all people was legitimately terrified of him. He’s like a more interesting Deadpool: Lighter on the ultraviolence and fourth wall-breaking and heavier on the absurdist humor.

Anyway, I’m not sure why Batman needs to stop him, but I suppose we’ll look into the fic to find out. Naturally, we start off with an author’s note.

SpideyMoon owns nothing but her own OC characters and her ideas so please don’t copy any of my fanfics without my permission ok?

Oh, sounds like we’ve got an ORIGINAL CHARACTER DONUT STEELE on our hands. That should be fun. So, after a line break, we get into the fic proper.

Batman punches the Creeper from hitting Joker for robbing his suits and gets him imprisonment.

Huh? Who’s robbing whose suits now? Who’s hitting who? What?

Lemonade is served.

Ah, right, well I’m glad there are refreshments… I guess. Anyway, after another line break we cut to-

The End.

Huh? Oh, I… guess it’s over?

Well, this is awkward. I… guess I’ll see you guys later.

*SLAM!*

And now, your out-of-context quote from the next riff:

Revenge is a dish best served lukewarm with a side of angst.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and we’re back with another Justice League fic that I think was a Batman fic in disguise. Seriously, what is with that?

Anyway, last time our self-insert got reborn as the demigod child of Hephaestus and some random Amazon who was named after food. He went to school in Gotham and made friends with baby Pamela Isley and eight-year-old Bruce Wayne. He also swore a lot, which is mostly my job. We resume the fic in the process of building an obnoxious Gotham Babies spinoff series.

Actually, I’m pretty sure we already got one of those, but I guess it didn’t have a totes badass to the max self-insert in it.

Four years since I met Bruce but damn it all the little bastard endeared himself to me, I often do wonder if this is what it’s like to have a little brother.

Bruce Wayne: Well known for endearing himself to people.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I lied to you. I said I’d find a bad Justice League oneshot, but this thing has two chapters, so yeah. There’s that. I’ll be doing this for two weeks and then we’ll get back to The Red Queen. And I’m like 40% certain we’ll get back to The Shadow Warriors sometime this year maybe. Anyway, I don’t really know what I’m getting into with this one, but it’s called Son of a Smith, which I figure is like a son of a preacher man.

OK, maybe not. Let’s look at the summary!

Critiqued by BatJamags (GoodJamags) and Kane

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with the end of this five-chapter chunk of The Shadow Warriors! I don’t know about you, but I’ll be excited to get back to something that’s not this. Not that I’m the same person as BadJamags, who would be the one hypothetically riffing a thing that’s not this. That’s just silly.

Last chapter, we had a villain teamup of Damian Cole (a vile, disgusting perpetrator of the atrocities which can only be known as “experiments,” for to explain them in more detail would be to forever shatter the sacred bond of nonspecificity between author and reader), Adam Kinsley (one of the most hilariously over-the-top Awesome McEvils I’ve ever seen and the newly renicknamed Miranda Strawson’s father), and Lex Luthor (who’s actually still pretty cool).

Anyway, they made some superfurries, didn’t quite understand the concept of cloning, kidnapped Edgelord and Miranda Strawson, and turned those two into superfurries. So, let’s check in on our chapterly news briefing and get started!

As usual, credit to Anne for this.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with more of The Shadow Warriors, the fic that was actually getting better for a while until we took a nosedive back into edge-land.

Last time, Sam Motherfuckin’ Jackson blew up His Idiocy’s arms. Yes, really.

And that’s about it. Let’s take a look at our chapterly news briefing, I suppose.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with the next thrilling chapter of The Shadow Warriors.

Last time, everyone moped around for a while, Sam Motherfuckin’ Jackson’s backstory continued to be dumb and interchangeable with all these other “characters’” backstories, and then they all went back to their headquarters to try to dislodge the absurd supervillain who the author has dubbed King Leonae. SMJ and Edgelord confronted His Travesty, who promptly made a break for it, pursued by SMJ, while Bane dropped out of the ceiling and fought Edgelord.

Yeah. Now, before we get started, your chapterly news briefing:

WARNING: Hey, domestic abuse is a funny joke, right? Wait, you mean it isn’t? Well, somebody should go tell Shadow knight1121 immediately!

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with yet another edgetacular chapter of The Shadow Warriors!

Last time, our villain of the week(s), Johnny Simmons, showed up at the Dork Patrol’s headquarters, only this time he was dressed up in a gaudy outfit as a Silver-Agey knockoff of King Tut from the Batman TV show with Adam West. He calls himself “King Leonae,” the “King of Gotham,” even though there are a lot of reasons that makes no sense.

Also he’s British now, even though he was not at all described as speaking with an accent.

Anyway, in a surprising and oddly satisfying display of decent pacing and tension, King Leonae and Bane trashed the EGA’s headquarters and sent them running with their tails between their legs. And before we get started, your chapterly news briefing.

Opener

As always, credit to Anne for this.
