The young man who appears in the Nexus today is well dressed in expensive fabrics, a classy signet ring on his finger, and a cool, calculating look on his face. He takes in his surroundings at a glance, and casually slips a PINpoint into his pocket.

"Is it cowardice to run away from an abusive home?"

As opposed to what other choices? Not everyone can kill the abuser in a way that makes sure they won't get sent to prison for it.

"Some people might be idealistic enough to insist that you can change your situation from the inside." He doesn't sound like he thinks much of that idea though.

Oh sure. If you just talk to the abuser, he or she will realize how hurtful they're being and how what they're doing is wrong and then they'll stop and everything will be lollipops and lemon drops. I don't believe it. Abuse becomes a regular thing for these people, a habit, and habits are hard to break without some outside regulator enforcing it and an outside regulator can't be in the home the whole time.

"I completely agree. And needing to rely on another person to be your deterrent is pathetic."

Much better to remove yourself from the situation. The best is if you make plans and gather resources before leaving. Best is if you make very sure the abuser can't hunt you down afterward, but not everyone is capable of such final solutions, which helps me make a living.

"You're an assassin?" He doesn't sound impressed or scared, more like he asked what his favorite color is. It's business talk.
10th-Jun-2012 04:48 am (UTC)
::offhand:: Assassin, bodyguard, industrial spy. It's a living.

"I imagine you have a lot of work." Clark sounds almost amused by that.
10th-Jun-2012 06:06 pm (UTC)
Always No matter the global economic climate, there's always work in those fields. I can't complain.
10th-Jun-2012 06:12 pm (UTC)
"And do you enjoy your work, or is it just business for you?"
10th-Jun-2012 06:20 pm (UTC)
I don't enjoy bodyguarding, all that standing out in public waiting and watching for someone to try to kill your client, but assassination and espionage are fun.
10th-Jun-2012 06:23 pm (UTC)
Clark chuckles a little. "Those willing to hire bodyguards are either powerful enough that attempts come few and far between, or are so self-absorbed that they mistakenly believe they are worth the effort."

"Of course not."

Ultraman obviously noticed the other kryptonians arrival via superspeed flight. He nods to the fellow kryptonian and headtilts some.

He's professionally schooled in presenting a calm and collected expression, but inside he's making calculated guesses about the stranger, with a heady dose of suspicion. Others with nonhuman abilities tend to be criminally insane, where he's from. "And why do you say that?"
29th-Jun-2012 08:39 pm (UTC)
"Well. Leaving an abusive home requires a lot of strength. Its a Home."
29th-Jun-2012 08:40 pm (UTC)
"Is it?" he challenges the stranger. "Just because one is living there does not make it a home. Particularly if you feel unwelcome on occasion."
29th-Jun-2012 08:45 pm (UTC)
"Well you said an abusive home. Typically that means abusive parents or loved one. You are Supposed to feel safe and welcome there but even if you dont on occasion you tend to still have issues with leaving them. The sentient mind is a complex machine." He shrugs with a smile. "If you never really had an attachment to the place then I would reason the fear of what to do next is just as strong."
29th-Jun-2012 11:22 pm (UTC)
He takes that as an insult, even though it was not intended as such. "I fear very little."
29th-Jun-2012 11:39 pm (UTC)
"We kryptonians dont need to fear much. Thats quite true." He continues to smile softly and shrugs. Switching to kryponese.

{I am Elohe El. Greetings.... Kal if I am not mistaken.}

"You're not the first person to use that word today. 'Kryptonian.'" He says it like it's unfamiliar, and doesn't show a bit of understanding when the stranger switches languages. Clearly something has gone wrong with his education from his homeworld. "Is that supposed to mean something to me?"
29th-Jun-2012 11:50 pm (UTC)
"Hm. My apologies. I thought you may have gotten the language download like most of the others. If you were not aware you are a kryptonian. Like myself. Born on the planet Krypton. Sent to earth to avoid its destruction. The type of destruction tends to vary on the universe. And from what I can see of your genetic code and well your face. You are an alternate of my father. Kal El. Though in my universe I was the one sent to earth. Our world took longer to die."

Others, plural. How interesting. Not just the one that he attempted to replace today. "I know that I'm an alien. The details have been... kept from me."

"Not surprised. If I'm not mistaken that ring is a Luthor family signet. Seen Lex with one similar in my world. The family is not exactly known for its honesty or openness."
30th-Jun-2012 12:18 am (UTC)
Clark twists the ring a little, an idle habit that he finds himself doing even when he isn't wearing it. "That's correct." And if Clark's sleeve slips up a bit, or if x-ray vision becomes involved, Elohe may notice a matching scar burned into his forearm.
