My father called it the change engine. It was found by the British during World War One They studied it, but they couldn’t even date it. It’s so old It was shelved till the night Superman died, then she lit up like Christmas They brought it to STAR Labs, where my father recognized it as a perpetual energy matrix -Ooh, that sounds cool, I thought it was like a nuclear bomb. -A mother box destroys as it creates It’s a cycle of life, but a million times faster My father thought it was the key to unlimited energy new formulas cellular regeneration But it’s too volatile to control.
-He used it on you. -I was in an accident should Have died My father thought that he could use the mother box to rebuild the broken parts of me with a few cybernetic enhancements Steady built a living machine. I may be stronger than its host too much So much life What’s on your weird mind? Muscles. Coordination basic cellular integrity the human being can only absorb so much The mother box was designed to reshape a planet so so what if you were stronger than a planet? your cells lying dormant but incapable of decay if you were in a conductive field A boost from the mother box could bring him back to life The Kryptonian ship has an amniotic chamber which would be a perfect -no Diana
Bruce, no you have no idea. What kind of power you’re dealing with even if there’s a fraction of a chance- -So what we could raise a monster? Like Luther did? -We have tech Luthor has never even seen! -Superman is dead We all wish he weren’t. -We don’t know what state he’s in We know we can’t bring him back, but this is science beyond our limits And that’s what science is for, to do what’s never been done to make life better -Or to end it Technologies like any other power without reason, without heart, it destroys us You’re risking lives Theirs and maybe countless more. We don’t have time for a control group Is it a risk yes, but it’s necessary Why?! because of your guilt (SIGH) Bruce I was there. You didn’t kill Superman At some point even you have to learn to move on Did Steve Trevor tell you that? Superman was a beacon to the world Why aren’t you? You’re an inspiration Diana you don’t just save people Make them see their better selves And yet I never heard of you until Luthor lured you out by stealing a picture of your dead boyfriend You shut yourself down for a century, so let’s not talk about me moving on You know that if she kills you we’ll cover for her -We are not enough! Each of us in our own way is held back, and I promise you Steppenwolf is not out there talking about ethics He’s trying to burn down the world we’re gonna stop him just by using his power this power against him I I agree Don’t like the idea of reintegrating with the mother box But I was running the numbers while you were being an asshole And there’s a high probability that we can bring him back Right right, but we mean bring him back in like a “yay he’s back” way and not in like a Like a pet sematary Scenario you lose something when he died even Superman Maybe not his mind Maybe his soul I’ll have a contingency plan for that If he wakes up, and you’re the first thing he sees You’ll need one
