The massive mech raised an arm and pointed it directly at Wonder Woman, who was now, presumably, Dr. Cyber. Stealth came to the Amazon's side to put the dark metal circlet on her head. Before Stealth could act, Wonder Woman sat bolt upright and screamed while gripping her head. Ripper reacted immediately and with his other arm pushed back the screaming woman as Stealth secured her from behind and struggled to put the circlet on.
Bruce held out hope for a moment as he watched in desperation at the scene unfolding before him.
Stealth and Ripper won. The circlet was placed upon Diana's brow and she quickly calmed down. She went limp, then shook her head and sat up straight. The two mechs stood at the ready and Julia did a scan from the controls then came to the side of her patient.
“Dr. Cyber? Are you in there? Are you okay?”
The woman who had Diana's face swung her legs over and let them dangle from where she sat on the slab. She did not speak for a few moments, but then she smiled. She held out her hands and her gaze followed her arms and looked at her legs. She caressed herself all over and stood up. When she did, she wavered and almost fell. Julia went to grab her, but Stealth was already there. “Oh yes. Yes, yes, yes. It worked beautifully.” It was Diana's voice, but an accent like Dr. Cyber. “It may take a little longer than I thought to be fully functional, but I can already feel the strength and power at these finger tips.”
During all this, Robin was able to reach out and unlock Batman's tube. There was a hissing sound, but with the hums and clicks still going on in the room, no one noticed. Bruce saw the black glove of his protege', but did not react yet. He took this moment to free his other hand and free his feet. He stood up and just then Joker turned and walked over.
“Well Batsy Boy. It seems this time I win and you lose. Hah Hah Hah!.”
Bruce couldn't hold back anymore. He wanted to get at Dr. Cyber's cyborg body that Diana's mind had been transferred to, but didn't have any plan, so he went with brute force. He kicked and pushed hard at the unlocked door smashing Joker in the face. Meanwhile Robin tossed out the last of his flash and smoke battarangs and tossed a concussion one at the mechs around the new Dr. Cyber.
Confusion erupted and Ripper came around the lab table and began to fire. Stealth covered Cyber and Julia was on the floor dazed. Batman was out and went and first thing was a taser dart aimed at Ripper. It stuck into a gap in his armor releasing thousands of volts. Ripper's form lit up then he turned into a metal statue as his overloaded systems went into recovery mode. Next Batman went for Cyber's former body, but Joker tripped him up as he recovered from the blow. Joker got to the controls first and hit the button that Cyber had instructed him to press to destroy the cyborg body.
Energy glowed from the slab the body was on and from the slab above it. Heat emanated from the two slabs and energy arced between them like lightning bolts. Almost immediately the flesh and machine body melted and disintegrated.
Bruce couldn't believe his eyes. He was horrified. The Joker began to howl with laughter. The smoke in the room was everywhere and for once, Bruce didn't know what to do. He heard a voice calling for Batman and realized it was Jason. He looked towards the voice and saw Robin waving him over. Just then the main doors opened again and another large mech stood there. It was the first one Robin had encountered earlier. Batman now unleashed his own flash and concussion Battarangs adding to the confusion while Stealth pulled Diana's body away. Batman turned to Joker, but he was gone, so he did one last thing before going to Robin; he hit the “Open Lock” on the cell that held the cyborg of Hespira. She didn't waste time and charged out.

Batman caught her arm. “Trust me and follow me, we need to get out of here and regroup. And I need Diana's body intact. We'll get her mind back somehow.” Her expression was hard to read, but it seemed she agreed. Meanwhile Jason was having his own confrontation with his former acquaintance. Arc Angel thought he was prepared this time. The flash bombs didn't affect him this time. He grabbed Robin by the arm and lifted him high. “We have to stop meeting like this.” Jason groaned and the large mech threw him. Luckily out the door and not back in the lab. Batman pulled out another taser dart and jabbed it into the side of the mech as he and the bloody cyborg Hespira ran towards the open blast doors. Arc Angel lit up as the powerful taser disrupted his systems. Outside the room of chaos, Batman closed the door. There was a convenient large red button by the door's keypad that read “Press in Emergency”. He hit it and the large triple blast doors closed. “This is definitely an emergency.” Hespira punched the keypad with her cyborg arm and destroyed it. Batman went to Robin's side as he sat up holding his arm. “You alright?” “Ugh. Yeah, just pull my arm.” Robin said. Batman didn't hesitate. He saw the dislocation and put a foot on Robin's chest and pulled his arm. Robin cried out loudly, but after a moment got up. “We can get out here.” Bruce said, pointing to the ceiling. The three climbed up where Jason had come through and made their way to the utility corridor. As they quickly made their way up, Bruce called Alfred. “Alfred, you there? We need air transport now on the roof of the Cyber division.” “Sir! You're alive! Thank the spirits. And Master Todd?” “He's here and I owe him.” “Very good sir. Your transport has already been dispatched and is in a holding position. It will be waiting on the roof when you get there.” “You're the best Alfred.” “I know sir. Security?” “Yes. Level 4 protocol.” “Oh my. Very good sir, Alfred out.” Continued on next page...

LOL! Love it! When in doubt, go with brute force! Joker? Face, meet door! SMASH! Mint! I sure hope Diana is still present in her own body... I can't wait to see how the internal conflict plays out against Cyber's essence... but she may be a little unprepared to deal with a god-like spirit! Heh! Loved the "Hollywood" popping back in of the disloctaed shoulder! :)
