Extract 1

  • I looked out over the decaying city and could feel his presence all around. He was no sub standard enemy; he was a class above all the other twisted animals I had fought before him. I had to be prepared. Prepared to conquer his wildness and rage. The Joker would challenge me in ways I had never known.

Extract 2

  • They faced each other, knowing that only one of them would survive. Superman’s eyes sparkled with determination. The Green Goblin’s smile was filled with disgusting confidence. They stood ready and aware of each other’s power, but neither of them attempted the first move. The silence was eerie as it filled the night sky.

Extract 3

  • The Hulk was scared. He sat waiting in the little room. He knew his powerful enemy was coming. He was getting ready. He thought he might win. He wasn’t sure.
