'Murphy's Law' JeremyCreek and Lex Luthor
traveled the world, showcasing Jeremy's powers to potential Luthorcorp
investors. One of the places they stopped was Taiwan. The people of Taiwan, like many people
around the world, celebrated the arrival of JeremyCreek as a superstar.
Jeremy was said to be the most powerful metahuman ever. He had an amazing
ability to control both electricity and magnetism that allowed him to move
objects and fly.
When they arrived in the city of Taipei they were greeted by
the mayor. The mayor was pleased to see them as Luthorcorp planned to build a
facility there. Lex expressed his gratitude to the mayor, telling him how
honored he was to be greeted by the people of Taipei.
Out of the corner of his eye Lex noticed the mayor’s bodyguard was glaring at
him. Lex addressed the man saying, “I’m sorry officer. Have I done something to
“Yes”, the man stoicly replied.
The mayor frantically reprimanded the man, an inspector named Glen Chao.
"You promised me you wouldn’t say anything!”, he
said. The mayor apologized to Lex and directed him to the vehicle that would
take them to the site of the new factory. But Lex politely asked to talk to the
inspector. "Please, mayor", he said, "I would like to hear what
this man has to say.” The mayor stepped back, ashamed.
“My daughter is dead”, Chao said. “My daughter is dead because of you!”
Lex was approached by one of his aids. His aid informed him that the man’s
daughter was involved in an accident at a lab in Taiwan that was conducting
experiments on metahumans. The lab had recently lost its funding, which was
transferred to Luthorcorp in anticipation of Lex’s and Jeremy’s visit. The
inspector’s daughter had been on life support, but after the funding was lost
they could no longer afford to care for her, and she died.
Upon hearing this Lex’s heart sank. He glanced at the ground for a moment and
then reached out his hand to shake hands with the inspector, saying he was
sorry. The inspector became infuriated and lunged at Lex’s neck. JeremyCreek got between them and
then directed his power at the inspector, throwing him backward on the ground.
Inspector Chao's mouth bled as he had lost a tooth.
The inspector asked Jeremy, “Why is it that the great hero JeremyCreek defends a killer?! I
think it is because JeremyCreek is no hero! I think
that instead he is a killer! And that I shall have my revenge!”. The mayor directed his police officers to take the
inspector into custody.
