[From the files of the Axiom Nexus supercomputer dimensional database] Alternity Code SC.0511 Beta, dubbed "Transformers Nexus (Revised)" by the monitors of the Transformers Worldviewers 2-0-0-5 has been a rather curious plane of existence. the inhabitants of many of its worlds seem to be either inspired or lifted from other such universes, like whatever created it seemed to be gleaning its characters from works it liked, but infusing them with a quality that made it look so much more different, and interesting. One particular time span of interest was when the power of the mysterious Galaxy Gauntlets, devices that copied powers from all over the multiverse at the cost of being magnets for trouble, was unleashed to close the mysterious shadow world known only as Quartz. The result not only sent everyone who was ever in Quartz back to the dimensions from whence they came, but had two rather unpredicted side effects. The first was the limitation of the Gauntlet's powers to five per user. The second was the creation of equivalents of both Marvel-Class and DC-Class warriors, known locally as meta-humans or Mavericks. Far different from what had occured prior to Quartz's disappearence, this was more or less "the Age of Heroes". Life was not so different from the comic books it seems and a lot of the meta-humans of this time came in two distinct, wildly versital flavors; Superhero and Supervillain. Nobody knew it at the time, but the events that would transpire in this age of heroes would ultimately lead to the intended goal of the Gauntlet's creators, a perfect lifeform... ENTRY 01: [Transscript of security footage from Wayne Enterprises, October 23rd, 2018] PETER PARKER: You're nothing but a freak, clown. And a rather ugly one at that. JOE KERVANSKI: Oh, is that so? Well, you know how I like to make people laugh, even though they sometimes question why... PETER PARKER: Really? Because I know a guy who's terrified of clowns. I guess it's the way they smile. JOE KERVANSKI: If they can't apppreciate a smile, they're not human. Then again, I stopped being human a while ago. PETER PARKER: You're about as human as everyone else who wears make-up like that. And judging by THAT smile, I'd say you're comfy being a little weird. JOE KERVANSKI: Really? Well, I guess I'm used to smiling all the time. It's kinda my thing, y'know? PETER PARKER: Even when you kill an innocent old man, who happened to be a Meta-Human's uncle. JOE KERVANSKI: ...I guess it's kinda stuck that way. You may wonder why I smile all the time. PETER PARKER: Never crossed my mind... JOE KERVANSKI: You see, my father was an alcholic...and an ass. He never cared for me, and mom was even less appreciated. We tried to get him to stop the craziness he puts us through, but he didn't acknowledge them. One night, we attempted to leave, so that we didn't have to deal with his constant boozing. He didn't like that. Not...one...bit. So, me watching, he slits her throat with a kitchen knife, laughing while he does it. He turns to me, and he says, "Why so serious?" He comes at me with the knife — "Why so serious?" Sticks the blade in my mouth — "Let's put a smile on that face!" And... (He paused for a moment, and looks at Peter, his smile becoming both warm and chilling...) JOE KERVANSKI: ...why so serious? PETER PARKER: You're... you're an insane bastard. JOE KERVANSKI: Really? And what did your dad do? PETER PARKER: He left me in the care of Benjamin Parker. He died in a plane crash. He disappeared from my life, making Ben the closest thing I ever had to a father... and you killed him. JOE KERVANSKI: So I did. Big whoop. PETER PARKER: HRAAAAAAAAAAAGH! I'M GONNA RIP YOU APART, DIGEST YOUR INSIDES WITH MY VENOM, AND FORNICATE WITH YOUR SKULL! (The brawl cannot be described in detail due to the action being too fast for the cameras to record accurately.) PETER PARKER: TIME TO DIE YOU LITTLE- SARI SUMDAC: STOP! (Both see an approaching Sari Sumdac, decked out in her advanced armor.) SARI SUMDAC: Look, Peter. He killed your uncle, sure. He killed a lot of people. But if you kill him, it won't change a thing. You can't change the past. (Parker looks at Kervanski, then drops him.) PETER PARKER: Okay... You've had your punishment... I'll let proper authorities handle this. JOE KERVANSKI: They won't. And you don't scare me. Nobody does. You have nothing to threaten me with! Nothing to do with all your strength! PETER PARKER: You're right... but one day, you will be stopped. Maybe not by me, nor by your little nemesis. But I assure you, the day will come when your little insanity ends. Gotta split. (Both Sari and Peter leave the scene.) JOE KERVANSKI: Looks like another new guy enters the fray. A spider-man, a spider-man, who can do whatever a spider can. Spins webs of any size, and catches criminals like flies. Look out, here comes the Spider-Man... (Insane laughter) Hello, Audience! Thanks for reading my little thing here. Just a new project I worked out, something to flesh out the stuggles of good and evil... And yes, I crossed over Transformers, Marvel Comics, and DC Comics. Fanboy: You can't do that, they are totally different. Me: SCREW YOU! I DO WHAT I WANT!
