Meanwhile, back at the Hall of Justice…
“I got here as soon as I could, Batman, what’s wrong?”
“I’m glad you’re here Superman, there’s disaster in the kitchenette.”
“You called me back for a problem with the kitchenette?”
“Yes. I warned you not to replace the Batspresso maker with a Keurig.”
“I don’t have time for this, Batman.”
“Flash was arguing with Green Lantern about Star Trek again.”
“I have even less time. Luther’s about to attack the Infinitorium.”
“What do you mean it doesn’t matter? It could be catastrophic!”
“It’s too late, Superman, they’re already dead.”
“They just don’t know it.”
“Then I have to go now!”
“Flash was pushing the button to make the coffee stronger when Green Lantern told him that Wesley Crusher would take Kirk in a fight.”
“Get to the point, Batman!”
“Flash pushed the button faster than the Keurig could handle. It brewed a cup of so strong that it collapsed into a black hole..”
“A BLACK HOLE? Here?”
“How do we stop it?”
“Yes! How do we fix it?”
“It’s a black hole, there is no fix. Even Super Heroes have to obey the Laws of Physics.”

Oh dear Thor, I REALLY loved this! Sooooo… just WOW. LOL
Thanks! The whole time I wrote it I heard it in Batman’s voice as I was writing, so it was even more fun for me 🙂
completely barmy in a good way 🙂
I had never heard the word, “barmy” before so had to look it up. I love it! I consider that high praise indeed 🙂
This was great, when someone manages to pull off a dialogue only short story I’m always impressed, those are hard. Anyway, awesome story.
Thank you so much! I greatly appreciate it 🙂
If you add cream and sugar to a cup of coffee that has collapsed into a black hole, does it stir itself?
I think it would totally stir itself! I think, there might even be a new theory for the pre-Big Bang Universe in there 🙂
So would Batman drink that black hole hot or cold?
Hot. Batman could drink the Big Bang’s plasma with little more than a grunt and a throaty, “Toasty.” 🙂
Would falling through the black hole froth it up so it becomes a latte? I’d like one of those ^___^
I’m sure Starbuck’s is already test marketing Black Hole Lattes somewhere!
That’s what happened to all the supers – shot through the hole into another ‘verse. The DC universe it would appear.
Marvel last seen whistling and slowly walking away… 🙂
Batspresso machines could be a big seller, the next George Foreman grill. But not a grill. Superheroes seem to have this air of invincibility about them. Good to know they are subject to the laws of physics like the rest of us.
Indeed! Of course theirs also the smaller Batpresso machine that fits on his Bat Belt. It helps keep him and Robin awake for those long stakeouts.
I love this!
I love the all-dialogue piece!
