The brightly lit city cannot hide the darkness of night. In autumn, compared with the sweltering heat during the day, the evening wind carries a biting cold. The bustling city is filled with smog, and the whole city is filled with a pungent industrial waste water.
Layers of thick fog hang over the night sky in Gotham City. In the pitch black night sky, suddenly a thunder flashed. Immediately afterwards, the space seemed to be broken like a mirror, and a dark space crack appeared. This crack was hidden in the thick fog of Gotham City, and it was almost difficult to observe.
When this space crack appeared, a dark figure fell from the sky. Rachel Dawes, the newly appointed Assistant Prosecutor in Gotham City, was driving a red car, driving fast on the small road. At this moment, a dark figure fell from the sky and hit Rachel heavily on the road ahead.
“HOLY!” Rachel’s first reaction was that someone jumped off the building, because this kind of thing is not uncommon in Gotham.
Especially in recent years, Gotham City have amassed a lot of problem, and the major gangs oppress the people. The people at the bottom are almost living in the heat of the water. If there is a little bit of turmoil in the current situation, stocks plummet and chaos will erupt.
If you want to find a rooftop with a better location, you even need to queue up.
After Rachel realized that someone had ‘jumped off the building’, she immediately slammed on the brakes, pulled the handbrake, and gripped the steering wheel tightly with both hands. Finally, the car came to a smooth stop before the poor man ran over him.
Rachel, who was still in shock, was sitting in the driver’s seat, panting violently, her heart almost jumped into her throat. Trying to calm down her shocking emotions, Rachel unbuckled her seat belt and got out of the car to take a look at the person who jumped from the building.
Of course, it’s not that Rachel didn’t think about driving away. After all, her car didn’t hit the man. However, as someone who were on her way home, Rachel still retains her original kindness in her heart. At least, take a look at that poor guy and see if he can be rescued.
If it doesn’t work, she can call the police and report that someone has jumped off the building. The Gotham City police are very experienced in handling such matters.
After getting out of the car, Rachel glanced at the man on the ground. She was about to take out her cell phone and call the Gotham City Police Department, but she noticed that the man who hit the ground moved a bit.
“You… are you still alive?”
“Hey, are you okay? God, you smashed the ground and you’re still…alive?!” Rachel cautiously steps in a little bit.
She clearly saw the person in the weird dark clothes hit the back of his head on the ground, but instead of opening his head, the concrete floor was cracked.
Rachel hadn’t had time to think about the possibility of cracking the concrete floor with human heads, when she noticed that the young man lying on the ground. A black hair, a sharp-edged face with a hint of fortitude, and a unique oriental delicacy between the brows.
It seems that he is in his early twenties, just a few years younger than herself.
After seeing the young man’s face clearly, Rachel moved a little closer, and stretched out her hand to poke the man’s chest in front of her.
Just as Rachel was looking at the young man in front of him, the young man lying on the ground suddenly opened his eyes and looked straight at Rachel.
“What?” Rachel quickly withdrew her hand in fright, took a step back, and looked warily at the young man in front of her.
“Are you okay? I’ll call an ambulance for you, you’d better lie down quickly, in case of concussion, internal bleeding, fracture…” While speaking, Rachel subconsciously glanced at the cracked concrete floor, and suddenly she didn’t know what to say when her words came to her lips.
The young man in black stood up slowly, and Rachel who was on the side was a little worried about the other person’s physical condition, but she didn’t dare to get too close, and seemed a little at a loss.
“Where am I?” the young man asked slowly.
“This is Gotham, have you lost your memory? Do you remember your name?” Rachel boldly approached and asked tentatively.
“My name is…” The young man obviously confused for a while, but soon, he was like a machine connected to the Internet, countless information flooded into his mind, and his eyes regained some of their spirit:
“My name is Rorschach, you just said… this is Gotham?”
Rachel replied affirmatively, she couldn’t help touching the arm of this man named Rorschach again, and asked cautiously “How take you to the hospital for a look?”
“No need, I’m fine.” Rorschach first looked down at his hands.
His body is still hanging on the Source Wall. This body is Rorschach’s avatar. Rorschach uses his power to penetrate the crack of the Source Wall and arrive at the DC Universe with a small part of the Necrosword and a drop of his own blood.
This avatar was formed by that drop of blood. It was not smooth at the beginning, but after a while, it was completely smooth.
“Fortunately, although this body is not as powerful as the real one, it is still the Kryptonian blood with unlimited potential at the sixth level. As long as I get more exposure to the sun, sooner or later I will advance to the level of Golden Superman.”
“In addition, I also need to absorb the power of faith…”
For a moment, Rorschach looked at the young woman in front of him and asked, “Is the superhero in this city Batman? Does he know Superman?”
Rorschach must first determine which version this universe is. You must know that there are many parallel universes in DC. There are various versions of Gotham City and Batman. If you know in advance which version this world belongs to, you can better integrate into it.
Rachel had a weird expression, looking at Rorschach as if she was looking at a psychopath, “What are you talking about? I don’t understand what you mean.”
“I said, Batman… Wait, you don’t know Batman?” Rorschach asked rhetorically.
“You haven’t heard of Superman either?” Rorschach asked again.
Rachel continues to nod.
Rorschach thought for a while, and continued to ask, “Then do you know the Wayne Group, and Bruce Wayne?”
Hearing the name Bruce Wayne, Rachel’s expression became even weirder. She seemed to understand something, and looked at Rorschach with a very sympathetic look, “So, the Wayne Group caused you to jump off the building?”
“Jump off a building? I didn’t jump off a building…” Rorschach looked back at the cracked ground, and then at the sky.
The space crack in the sky has been restored, Rorschach scratched his head, “Well, I guess I jumped off the building, because the Wayne Group caused me to go bankrupt and homeless.”
