NOT MINE when the heros are little the actually DID see the watch tower.....and had fun with Robin's hacking abiltys
ROY (age 13)
"This isn't fair." Roy complained. He sunk into the plush chair and crossed his arms, a deep scowl on his face. "They took us to the Watch Tower and it was supposed to be cool, but now we're stuck here with nothing to do!"
The three boys looked around their confined el espacio with a groan. All they'd wanted to do was watch a movie. They hadn't known that they'd put it in the monitor system. Soon enough Pirates of the Caribbean had been playing on every computer screen, monitor, and televisión in the el espacio station. They hadn't meant to do it, but that didn't stop the mentors from being angry at them.
It had taken the League too long for their liking to find the fuente of the problem and take out the movie, finally restoring order to the Watch Tower. batman was furious that the computers had been temporally offline. Even though nothing bad had happened he kept emphasizing that something bad could have happened and they wouldn't have known because Jack Sparrow had taken over the computers. batman had been so angry. Actually, most of the League members were upset with them. They kept going on about how if they wanted to be heroes they had to be más responsible, reliable, etc.
Poor Robin, who had put the DVD in there in the first place, was near tears because of their anger. And because the little bird was so upset, Roy had taken the blame. He didn't want to make the little boy cry so he'd told the mentors that he'd been the one to put the DVD in the system.
The mentors had finally calmed down, but the three boys had been confined to a small guest room. 'Time Out' as Ollie had called it. Grumpily Roy kicked his feet. It wasn't fair. This time they hadn't even meant to do something bad.
"We can't do anything now." Wally added. "They'll never let us watch another movie. Ever!"
"Batman was mad at me." Dick whispered. He was curled up on a chair, a small frown creasing his face. He didn't like when batman was upset.
"He isn't upset anymore." Roy promised the little boy. Now batman was rather upset with Roy. Though the archer had a feeling that batman probably would know the truth soon enough. batman was like that.
A smile graced Dick's lips and he sat up. "Batman isn't upset with me because you're the best Roy." He grinned at the red head.
Roy gave him a smile back. "I know."
"I'm so board!" Wally cried. He threw himself backwards onto the floor. "We're in the Justice League headquarters and I'm boarded. Shouldn't that be a crime?"
"I agree." Dick said.
Roy nodded. It just wasn't fair. "I still have the DVD if tu guys want to finish that."
"We can't. There isn't a TV in here." Wally groaned. "And no computers either."
"They don't trust us anymore." Dick dicho softly. The boys sat in silence for another moment. Then, suddenly, Dick's face lit up. "Wait! I have a computer."
The other two exchanged a look. "You have a computer in your utility belt?" Roy questioned.
"Do tu have a refrigerator too?" Wally asked hopefully.
Dick giggled. "No. In my glove." He said. He pressed a button and suddenly a small holographic screen appeared above his glove. The others rushed over.
"That's so cool." Wally dicho eagerly. He remembered now seeing the computer-glove before. When they'd tried to rescue Batbear, Robin had used it then. He hadn't seen it since and had forgotten. Now he remembered that he'd been meaning to ask Flash for computer-gloves too. o maybe refrigerator-gloves. He was fairly sure batman could make those.
"Does your guante play DVDs?" Roy questioned.
"No. But we can probably play some video games o something." Dick said. "I just need to bring up the right programs. Batman's been teaching me."
Dick clicked a few times on the holographic keyboard and the screen changed.
"What's that?" Roy asked, grabbing the child's hand before he could change the screen again.
"Oh. That's the Justice League." Dick shrugged. "I was practicing hacking into the security cameras. batman dicho they're always the easiest to hack."
"This is live?" Roy asked. He could see the League members sitting around a table. Right now Green arrow was talking rather heatedly to the group.
"Yea. It's their conference room. Why?"
"Can tu get the sound on?" Wally asked.
"I think so." It took a few tries but soon Dick had the sound playing.
"—need más discipline." Green arrow was saying. The sound was scratchy at best, but they could just make out his words. "They'll never listen."
"They're fine, Ollie." Flash groaned. "They're just kids."
"This is the eighth time they've disobeyed."
"We didn't actually tell them not to do that." Hawkgirl spoke up.
"That isn't the point!"
"Queen, you're just upset because Roy doesn't hero-worship tu anymore." batman growled. "What they did was wrong but they didn't mean to. We can each individually deal with their discipline, as we always have. The league doesn't need to step in to discipline children."
Green arrow sat down with a grumble. The room was silent for a moment. Then Green Lantern spoke up. "Green arrow makes a good point." He said. "They are still children, but in becoming heroes they have to learn the consequences of their actions. They get away with a lot."
"They're doing just fine." Flash dicho quickly.
"They should learn to handle orders better."
"I agree." Hawkgirl said. "They are wonderful, but I swear I've had to tell them a million times not to play in the rafters, o put their videogames in the computers, and park their toy cars in the hanger."
Robin blushed at these words. Most of those were him. batman was really the only mentor who took his sidekick up to the Watch Tower often.
"A lot of that is just kids being kids." superman said.
"But they need to learn." J'onn agreed calmly. "Their actions here, though maybe from playfulness, can have a bigger impact on the whole League."
"Are tu suggesting that we aren't training them right?" Batman's voice was a deep growl and the others flinched.
"No. I'm saying that they need to behave." Green Lantern said. "They're growing older and they need to learn if they're going to become heroes."
"Shut up!" Roy cried at the screen. "We're doing just fine tu butt-heads. Haven't tu guys ever made mistakes?"
"Flash goofs off all the time and they never care when he does it." Wally added.
On screen the heroes were yelling at each other, all save for batman who sat calmly in his asiento watching. They were arguing about them and yelling that the boys shouldn't even be side kicks in the first place.
"Stop it! Stop arguing!" Dick exclaimed. He stared at the camera in horror. He hated when the talked about getting rid of the sidekicks. He was always scared they'd make him stop being Robin. They'd confronted batman plenty of times about it. "Stop it!"
Without thinking he brought up his keyboard and with a few strokes all the lights in the conference room went out. The heroes immediately stopped arguing.
"What was that?" Flash asked. Everyone held their breath as they waited for the lights to come back on.
"Forget to pay the electric bill o something?" Green arrow asked, trying unsuccessfully to lighten the mood.
"We should go check the systems." batman dicho immediately, worried por the presumable threat. Only once the heroes had left that room did Dick calm down. They weren't going to take him away from batman anymore.
The little boy looked up, staring at his friends. "How did tu do that?" Wally asked.
"It was easy."
Roy peered at his computer curiously. "What else can tu do?"
Suddenly the boys know how to entertain themselves.
batman was bent over the computer council, growling to himself as he tried to figure out what the heck was going on. Everything that could go wrong at the station was. Planes were starting up, the bahía doors kept opening and closing, the lights kept flickering on and off, the monitor systems were constantly playing some horrible youtube video, the bathrooms had been locked, the segundo floor had gone into lock down, and to parte superior, arriba it all off they didn't know what had caused it.
batman growled. No, to parte superior, arriba it off would be the people he had to deal with. Currently Flash was being 'helpful' por asking over and over again what was going on. Ollie had gotten himself locked in the bathroom. Superman, Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman, and all three Green Lanterns were down in the hanger trying to keep the javelins and jets from taking off. Numerous others were scattered about trying to get the place back into control. And Batman, the only one who truly knew how the systems worked, was trying to get whatever virus had infected the system destroyed.
It wasn't working.
"Batman, what is going on?" Black Canary asked, storming up to his side. "Why isn't it fixed yet?"
"I don't know." batman hissed. "The computer hasn't detected any virus."
"Then what is it?"
"I. Don't. Know." His voice had dropped to a feral growl and the blonde woman quickly rushed away. batman took a few breaths to control himself. If he couldn't find out what was going on he'd have to at least pinpoint the cause of the problems.
As the lights suddenly went out around the tower again he groaned. Easier dicho than done.
"What are these?" Wally pointed at the screen, his finger going through the holographic screen. Dick batted his hand away and made a face at him.
"Those are files." He dicho simply. He'd managed to hack all the way into the computer's core system. This was… fun. A smile spread over his face and he let out a laugh. When batman had started teaching him about hacking he'd been so bored. But now-now-he realized just how amazing it could be.
"What type of files? Are they about us?" Roy asked.
Dick smiled. "No. batman only keeps those on the Bat Computer." He frowned, and then a smile spread over his face again. "I wonder if I can get in there."
"No way." Wally dicho instantly. "There is no way tu can get into the Bat Computer."
"Watch me." Dick teased, making a face at his friend. "I should be able to connect from here."
Only a few minutos passed before Dick cheered. "I'm in!"
The boys settled down, watching as Dick scrolled through the many files. He stopped when he found the mission descriptions. The boys watched in awe as they read the different files about the missions the Justice League had gone on.
"Roy, read to us." Dick insisted suddenly. He crawled into the elder's lap. Wally went to his side and looked up hopefully.
The archer grinned at his younger brothers and began to read the missions to them. He accented the story with voices for characters: a high pitched noise for the girls, a whiny voice for Ollie, and a deep grumble for Batman. Wally and Dick added the noises of the planes flying and bullets going off.
Inexplicably the attacked had ended. It was sudden without any warning. That only served to worry batman más though. He quickly lifted all the mishaps the virus had caused. The planes were flown back into the hanger. The rooms were taken out of lockdown. Lights were restored. The monitors were silenced. Everything was put back as it was.
But batman couldn't get rid of the nagging feeling in his gut. Something else was wrong. He searched deeper into the computers, trying to find out exactly what the problem was.
The virus had gotten into the Batcave's system.
Bruce swore loudly. His system had even más information than the Justice League's computers. He had information on all of the heroes, including their secret identities. He had information about the locations of different criminals. He had all his designs for his weapons and body armor and vehicles. He even had plans on how to take down each and every member of the Justice League.
"What is it?" superman flew up to him when batman swore again.
"They got into the Batcave." batman growled. He was typing furiously on the computer, trying to find just what the virus was going for. Everything? One thing? What?
They were going through the mission reports. Every mission the Justice League had ever done had a file written about it, describing exactly what had happened. He had reports about the missions he'd been on solo and with Robin on.
This was not good.
batman swore again, frustrated. Nothing should have been able to get into the Bat Computer. Nothing. It was supposed to have the most secure system on the whole planet.
"No más stories." Wally dicho suddenly, breaking Roy off mid-sentence. "What else does batman have on his computer?"
Dick's face scrunched up as he tried to think. "Stuff about the villains and heroes… old news reports and papers…designs for costumes and stuff. I guess."
"I bet he has to have something better in there than all that boring stuff." Roy said. "Don't tu think he has anything interested in that computer of his?"
"I thought the stories were interesting." Dick pouted.
"I bet he has even better ones hidden away." Wally said.
Dick considered this for a moment before a grin flitted across your face. "You're right. He probably has the best stuff hidden."
He began to buscar the computer and soon found files buried deep under piles of code. A cackle left the boy wonder's lips at the thought of the challenge.
"They're going deeper into the files." batman hissed. There was nothing he could do to stop this virus. That left only one más thing to do. He called up Alfred.
"Master Bruce, what-"
"Turn off the power to the Batcave. Now."
"Right away sir." Alfred was level headed even while batman was practically screaming. A moment later Alfred returned to the line. "The power is off, sir."
"Good." batman breathed a sigh of relief. He couldn't recover whatever had happened, but the hacker o virus had been slow. He'd stopped him from getting any más files at least. batman leaned back, a scowl deeply set on his features.
How could this have happened? His systems were so advanced. No one should have been able to get in. No one could have. Then how had this happened? And what had they taken? And who had it been?
"Hey, look on the bright side." Flash spoke up. He was attempting to be cheerful but Batman's dark scowl stopped him.
Wonder Woman gave a small smile. "What bright side?" She asked curiously.
"At least the kids weren't around." Flash's grin abruptly faded at the words. "The kids!" He cried. A moment later he was gone.
Ollie dicho a rather colorful word and shot after him, along with batman and the rest of the League.
How had they forgotten about the kids? How had they somehow forgotten about the danger their children were in? They could have been locked in. They could have been without power. Richard would have been terrified if that happened. o what if they'd been placed on lockdown? Wally got claustrophobic. He would have been petrified. What if they'd been separated from Roy? At least Roy would have been able to take care of them. If they'd been separated who know what could have happened.
A dozen different scenarios plagued their minds as they burst through the door.
Nothing was wrong. Their children were safe. They were all huddled around Robin's computer screen, complaining. "How come it stopped? What happened? Did tu break it?" Wally asked.
"I didn't break it. It wasn't me." Dick shot back.
Of course they would have noticed the strange happenings and been following them.
Barry rushed over to his nephew and swept him into a hug. "Wally! Are tu ok?"
The boy squirmed in his uncle's grasp. "Of course I'm ok, Uncle Barry! What are tu doing?" he whined as Barry crushed him to his chest
"The Watch Tower was going haywire. I thought tu could have been hurt."
"Roy? Are tu alright?" Green arrow rushed to his ward's side and placed a hand on his shoulder. Roy made a face at his mentor.
"Of course I am."
"Dick?" batman knelt before his son. The boy was still frowning at his computer though.
"Daddy, the computer died." He complained. He showed the blank screen to his father.
Bruce chuckled despite the situation. "I know. A virus got in. It hacked our systems and the batcave."
"A virus? Like a cold?" Dick questioned.
"That wasn't a virus!" Wally spoke up. "That was Dick."
"But I haven't been sick." Dick said.
"No, silly," Roy said. "a virus infects a computer."
"Oh." Dick nodded and beamed up at his father. "That was just me, Daddy."
batman had no idea what to say. What in the world was his son talking about? "What do tu mean?"
"I hacked into the systems, just like tu showed me." Dick dicho proudly. "I was able to do anything. It was really fun. And then I found out how to get into the Bat Computer from here. Isn't that cool?"
Bruce just stared. Richard had done this? Eight año old little Dickey Grayson had hacked through the Justice League systems and his own? How was that even possible?
No one else seemed to understand either. "You did this?" Green Lantern demanded. "You hacked the systems?"
"Yea. batman was mostrando me how so I was just practicing. It's really fun, actually."
"Dick, tu can't do that!" Hawkgirl cried. "Do tu know what tu could have done?"
"We thought someone was attacking us!" superman exclaimed.
"I was locked in a bathroom!" Ollie added.
"The jets were taking off-"
"-couldn't get into the cafeteria-"
"-computers were playing stupid shows-"
"I was locked in a bathroom!"
"-could have been hurt-"
Dick's eyes welled up with tears at the sudden onslaught he was receiving from the Justice League. This was twice in the same día that he was in trouble. "I-I didn't m-mean to." Dick said. "I-I just wanted to-to practice."
He looked hopefully at his mentor who had yet to say anything. "I didn't mean to do anything wrong, daddy." He pleaded.
batman studied him a moment longer. "You hacked the Justice League systems."
"Yes." Dick whimpered and rubbed his nose.
"And tu hacked into my computer."
"Yes." Dick looked at his toes.
Then, of all things, batman smiled. A gentle hand ruffled his hair. "Good job." batman said. His eyes were shining with pride and he chuckled softly at Dick's confusion. Bruce pulled the child into his arms.
"You aren't mad?" Dick asked.
"Of course not." How could Bruce be upset when he son was so obviously a genius? He was eight and he'd hacked their systems. Bruce couldn't believe how proud he was of his little boy. Sure, it had been annoying and possibly dangerous. But at the same time he couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of accomplishment.
A smile lit up Dick's face. "You aren't?" He repeated, astounded.
"No. tu did excellent." Bruce congratulated him. "How far into the Batcave's files were tu able to get?"
"I was working on the triple encrypted ones." Dick dicho cheerfully.
"Bruce!" Ollie cried. "Come on, he just hacked our systems. I was locked in the bathroom. Aren't tu mad?"
"No." Bruce smiled down at his son. He kept smiling until Dick asked his siguiente question.
"Daddy, how come all your triple encrypted files are fotos of catwoman?"
