A camera pans over a vast audience of super-heroes and super-villains from all walks of live, orchestral fanfare playing all the while, before the camera and the stage lights come to focus on the main forum, and its red velvety curtains.

An announcer's voice booms: "Live, from Bob Kane Memorial Stadium - designed, drawn, and funded by Bill Finger - it's the Second and a Half Annual Ambush Bug Presents Awards Extravaganza!"

The curtains part, giving way to the night's emcee - Ambush Bug, dressed to the nines in a sharp tuxedo. A sharp, orange tuxedo.

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Ambush Bug Awards - the Schwabbies, as they are popularly known. This is our second and a half annual ceremony, and I hope we can continue the fine tradition of dignity and aplomb that we have maintained all these years. But - what's this?"

Ambush Bug looks towards the rafters, where there is suddenly a glow.

A mysterious glowing sphere levitates down towards the stage, hovering a few feet above Ambush Bug's head, shining quietly.

Commercial Break

From: [identity profile] jla-randoms.livejournal.com
Cheery music plays as the camera reveals the Doom Patrol, held hostage by the Brotherhood of Evil, about to be disintegrated, then cuts to a nearby hallway, where Steve Dayton waits for the right moment. He slips into a janitor's uniform that does nothing to conceal the enormous purple helmet on his head, and slips a candy in his mouth.

Making his way amongst the Brotherhood under the pretense of cleaning the floor, he picks his moment deftly, and blasts the villains with his psychic powers, and flashes a smile at the camera, holding up the candy tube, labelled 'Mento'.

"Do you need to learn a new language?"

A winged officer of the Thanagarian military appears on the screen, speaking in pleasant tones.

"Well, you can try Rosetta Stone, but why not use the superior alien technology available to such fine institutions as the Thanagarian Army, the Thanagarian Intelligence Agency, and the State Department."

He produces a small metal helmet device "Now you, too, can benefit from the Absorbascon, the fastest way to learn every language on a planet, guaranteed. Why waste time learning one at a time?"

Vandal Savage stalks out onto the stage, accompanied by Tenzil Kem. They step up to the podium, and Savage squints at the teleprompter.

"'Hello, Tenzil. I understand Bismollians can eat just about anything. I wonder what that's like. Hold for Laugh.'"

The two men emerge, dressed in their typical native attire.

"Let me make one thing clear." says Scalphunter, reaching the podium.

"No firewater jokes, no wampum jokes, no casino gambling. I won't do it. No way. No How."

He winces, realizing what he just said.

"That was the teleprompter's fault."

The demi-demonic Charaxes drops to the ground behind the podium, having been hidden in the scaffolding. He hisses a greeting to his more-human counterpart, who arrives through more conventional locomotion.

"Been a while, Moth."

Booster stalks onto the stage from the wings, still fuming over his Best Sidekick award - but maintaining a tight grip on the statue. No such thing as bad publicity, right?

Behind him, Blue Beetle follows him out, apparently having difficulty in stifling his laughter.
