    Summary

    Man begets man begets The Tales of Men, and there's nothing godly in that; Those Above and Them Below haven't any need for the stories humans have been hungry for since the snake and the Angel with the flaming sword.

    Summary

    “What are your superpowers again?”

    “I’m rich.”

    Clark knows that he should be grateful to Bruce for helping Mom get the farm back, for making it possible for Clark Kent, Daily Planet reporter, to exist again. And he is, he really is. In more ways than he can describe.

    But something grates. A bitter, choking taste.

    Thing is, he knows that Bruce wants him. Likes him, even. But Clark doesn’t allow himself to acknowledge it. He refuses to even think about it. Refuses to become Bruce’s kept man, Bruce’s whore.

    Too bad that there’s a rising organised crime syndicate in Metropolis that makes avoidance impossible. Not to mention his usual job as Superman.

    (An exploration on the very different forms of power that Bruce and Clark hold, and the implications of that on their relationship, with special emphasis on class issues. Or, the aftermath of Steppenwolf: in which the world still needs to be saved, but there is no longer a convenient villain left to punch.

    Subtitled: “How to (and Why) Save a Life.” Please note the tags and the warnings inside.)

    Complete.

    Summary

    The murmuring of the crowd withers into a concerned hush as Bennett kneels beside the body. He touches the preacher’s sun-scarred wrist, then his swollen neck. The congregation knows what Bennett will say before he says it; they can see it in the sudden deflation of his posture, and his low, stern exhale of disappointment.

    Bennet stands up slowly, leaning heavily on his cane to steady himself.

    “It seems,” he says, in a tone suggesting some great and terrible inconvenience, “that we shall have to find a new preacher.”
