Eventually the time comes when those with powers have a choice to make: do what they feel is right or let power corrupt. Sometimes these choices, though made for the right reason, are what make heroes

There were few places that Carter Kent went in the city. Metropolis was not a place that Carter went because it brought back many bad dreams of the Cadmus Labs where he had been created. When he did go to Metropolis, Carter liked to go one of two places. The first was The Daily Planet. The newspaper always felt like home because of Lois and Clark. Lois Lane, the wife of his mentor Clark who had refused to take the Kent last name, had been like a mother to him. She taught him how the paper was ran, how to cover a story. Most of all, Lois taught him about how to handle the outside world. These days he did some unpaid field work for the Planet but since they turned into a public news channel, things were different.

The only other place he frequented in Metropolis was the place he was now: the Superman memorial in Metropolis park.

It was a simple memorial, a large black granite octagon with the prestigious Superman S etched into it. In front of the octagon sat two black granite torces on either side and of course the black casket with the name Kal-El and the dates he first saved Metropolis and the date of his death carved on to it.This place, though depressing, was one that Carter visited every little chance he could. Clark, the man the public knew as both Kal-El and Superman, had been Carter's savior. Carter carried on not only his blood but the memory of the man and what he stood for as well.

Sitting cross-legged in front of the memorial, Carter smiled softly. "Hey dad, nice to be back around. Grandma Martha's doing fine, she misses you and paw. I miss you and paw. Lois hasn't moved on, she still loves you. Lex Luthor hasn't had many schemes since you've been gone."

He took a deep breath and looked up at the sky, "I wish you could talk back dad..."

Though he was a reporter working under the infamous J. Jonah Jameson, Mikey Chase was nothing like his boss. He loved the idea of superheroes being around to keep everyone else safe and being a reporter allowed him to get to talk to them, sometimes. He was generally a kind person too, unlike Jameson and was even somewhat shy at times. Besides his job, he lived a pretty normal life. He lived with his father and his brother and his mother lived away from them in Metropolis, with his 'adopted cousin' who he was sure was actually his sister.

Once a month, Mikey's father sent him over to visit his mother, where he enjoyed the quiet, free from his brother bugging him all the time. During his current visit, his mother had practically begged him to come with her to visit the grave of her first husband after his 'cousin' had gone out.
While she was busy sobbing, Mikey noticed another person nearby, at a memorial he knew all too well thanks to his job and being a huge fan of anything hero related.

Taking a few steps towards the man, Mikey heard him speaking and couldn't help but grow curious. He tried to move quietly as he went closer, freezing when he heard the man use the word 'dad'. Suddenly he doubted that his attempt at being quiet really mattered.

((kind of going with the assumption that Metropolis is a city near New York with Gotham around somewhere too and none are the same))

((I'm thinking about making up a map so everyone knows where everything is.))

There was someone behind him, Carter could hear that. Hearing was one of the super powered things that he had in his utility. Not that the man's footsteps on the park ground were all that difficult to hear when he was walking on the park's grass where branches were all the time.

Carter stood and turned around, seeing a young man standing there. By the way he was looking at the memorial, the young man knew exactly who it belonged to. "You're here to see where he got buried too, huh? Hi...I'm Carter Kent..."
