Collateral Damage


The White House,


            The excitement of the reporter’s voice lit the room and everyone cheered at the visual of Superman’s return. The Secretary of Defence turned and gave the President a hug, patting him on the back. The President looked up to the screen and a smile crawled to his face as he thought of batman’s words, “Superman would be here, he’d never let us down.” But the President’s joy was short lived as he remembered the nuke he had launched moments ago.


            The President turned to the man with the briefcase, “We have to abort!” he said sternly.  “Superman is alive and there is no need for collateral damage.”


            “I’m afraid were too late for that sir,” The man said as he gaped at the President. “In the event of a terrorist attack, once the launch codes are in place and the nuke is set in motion, there is no override and the mainframe cannot be compromised.”


            “My God man…” The President gripped the man by the collar and continued, “What have you made me do? You have made me into a monster like that, that thing.” The President expressed in anger and the room fell silent. “We have to notify Superman,” he let go of the man and walked toward the screen watching as the red cape slowly dissipated into the cloud of ash. “As of now, I am lifting all bands on restricted air space, we have to let him know, we have to get the message to him. Send out the announcement to all traffic that is in the air.”


            Silence hung in the air,


“You heard the President!” The Secretary raised his voice. “Send out the message. Move it, move it!” and the room filled with clatter, The Secretary turned his head to the President, “One way or another, we will get the word to Superman.”
