*Camera shakes a little as it is put onto the stand. A handsome man sits down in front of it, his face clearly bruised and scratched.* "Hi, guys, it's me again. I know that you guys are only here to hear my thesis on the integration of Animal DNA into humans, but i need to tell you about this... I just got attacked by a Vampire. I know, right, it's crazy, but i was saved by..." He looked up and his eyes fluttered. "Ahhh... The prettiest woman you have ever seen." He then composed himself. "Look, i know that this sounds insane, but i need to meet her again." He sat, trying to figure out what to say. "To hell with this, i'm going to find her, right now, i'll keep searching till i do so. I need to meet her again." He pressed a button on the back of the recorder and it shut off.
*The Camera turns on to reveal the man covered in scratches* "I'm sorry, i should have told you all about this in advance, but..." he grinned a joyful grin. "I've just killed a vampire. Like, stake through the heart and everything! Can you believe it? I mean, i thought i'd be covered in blood, but it just turns to ash the moment you kill the bastards." He shook visibly in excitement. "I've never felt so alive!!!!! Oh, yeah, i found the girl again and she agreed to meet me tomorrow night. I need to shower. Bye!" *The camera turned off*
*The camera turns on to reveal the same man with his wounds healed.* "Sorry for not replying for the last few months, i've been really busy. I found her, her name is Rachel and... Well, i don't want to say we're dating, but-" At that point, the door opened and the pretty blond woman walked in.
"Hey, Mike, i've been looking over the blueprints of your UV Grenades and... Are you recording a Vlog?" the man grabbed the camera.
"No!" He replied as it turns off.
*The camera turns on to see the man now with a full beard.* "Well, this has been a crazy as hell year... Rache is sleeping, it was a hell of a honeymoon... Oh yeah." he revealed his wedding ring to the camera. "You would not believe HALF of the shit i have seen travelling around the world. Met some really nice guys and gals in Egypt, killed a LOT of Vampires. Met a... Well, let's just say a crazy old war vet in Russia. Really nice guy..."
"Come to bed, Mike..." A sultry voice cooed. The man shrugged, before reaching behind the camera and it turning off.
*The camera turns on as Michael is carrying a box* "Hey, Rache, it does still work." He said. "Well, here it is, our new house. I got a promtion at the lab, i'm now a team leader, so now we can afford the space." He carried the box into the bedroom, before he pointed it at Rachel "Say something funny." He said. She laughed, then held up a long object with 2 red stripes on it. "The hell is that?" *The camera tumbled to the ground as the box also smashed to the floor and the camera cut out*
*The camera turned on and the man slumped down into the chair in front of the camera. He had a bottle of whisky in his hands.* "I..." He staired at the camera for a solid minute. "W..." He buried his face in his hands as the sounds of soft sobbing could be heard. "So... I'm just gonna come out and say it. We lost th-" At that point, he broke down and started to bawl his eyes out. "Fuck..." He groaned. He turned the camera off.
*The camera turned on to find the man with bags under his eyes.* "Rachel has been... Tired... Coughing... I thought it was just the miscarriage... Just got the results back... McGregor's syndrome." He took a long drag on a cigarette. "No cure..." He took another long drag. "Now, there is good news and bad news... The good news is that i have found the foremost authority on McGregor's Syndrome. We've had a good, long talk and i have found a way to stabilize her. We've managed to put her into a sustained chemically induced coma that is keeping her in a form of stasis, The tumor isn't growing, but she can't remain conscious." He took another long drag of the cigarette. "Bad news... The man's name is Victor Fries and the man is certifiably insane. Operates out of Gotham, calls himself "Mr Freeze" and fights Batman..." He swore under his breath. "I REALLY don't want to fight Batman... I mean, if the guy could take on a literal God..." He buried his face in his hands, before pulling them away. "If he could take on a god... I can do no less to save her." He then turned off the camera.
*The Camera was facing vampire tied down to a table as Michael took blood, it thrashed around as he backed off, then immediately, it turned to see several Bat's in cages with Morbius injecting them with a substance. Several more reels of him stabbing them. He wiped away the blood, before finally stabbing a last one that screamed, but seconds later, had healed. He stabbed it again, before looking into the bat's eyes. He saw it follow the finger. He then threw his arms up in the air.*
*He turned on the camera and sat down. "Uuuuuhhh... Right... Victor has been caught... I've been forced underground... And now..." He pulled a out a syringe. "After 10 successful animal tests in a row... It's ready as it can ever be." He stared into it. "If this works... We'll be immortal... And maybe i can save Victor..." He smiled a little, then proceeded to tie a band around his arm, before searching for aa vein. "One small step for man... One giant leap for mankind..." He pressed the serum into his arm and pressed the plunger. He then grabbed his arm. "FFFFFuck..." He groaned. He then fell to the ground and a demonic roar could be heard as he smashed the Camera over. The camera caught his eyes turn red before it cut out.
*The Camera was close to his face as he turned it on.* "My god... What have i done?" He asked as he looked into the hideous face
"I... I am... A MONSTER!!!" He roared before smashing the camera.
*The Gotham News starts* "Hello, it's the news at 6 and i am your host Gordon Godfrey. Tonight on GCN." *The footage shows Batman punching the Penguin* "Batman bests notorious ganglord, The Penguin, after a tense hostage situation." *The footage shows a football star scoring a touchdown* "The Gotham Knights have done it again with their 7th consecutive win of the season, details at 7." *The footage then showed a boat on its side, beached in the harbour* "But our main story, a Greek freighter has washed up on the shores of Gotham Harbour in the early hours of the morning, all onboard dead. We now go live to Vicki Vale for more details. Vicki?" *The camera cuts to a side-by-side shot with Godfrey and Vicki, who was at the port, standing near the boat.*
"Thanks Gordon, yes, it's a harrowing scene here at Gotham Waterfront as a small freighter washes up on shore with all hands lost. All of the bodies were still onboard and all crew was accounted for, the police are currently investigating the possibility of Piracy." Gordon nodded.
"Yes, but what about the rumours of the neck bites?" Gordon asked. Vicki froze for a second, before gulping and looking at someone behind the camera.
"Umm, yes. Yes, unsubstantiated rumours from the coroner's office say that all of the victims were found drained of their blood and puncture wounds on their neck." She looked annoyed. Gordon smiled.
"We also bring you the following footage, taken from the first responders on the scene." The footage was shakey as a dock worker ran towards the boat."Holy s**t, f****n' look at this f****n' thing. YO NIKO, CALL THE COASTGUARD, AMBULANCE, FIRE AND RESCUE, F****N' SUPERMAN, JUST GET SOMEONE OUT HERE!!!" The man continued running, as the shaky camera showed some kind of shadowy figure was seen against the moonlit backdrop. "YO, IT'S OK, BATMAN'S ALREADY HERE!!!" He called, the man continued to run towards the ship. "Yo, Batman, me and the boys are here to help, whadya need?" At that point, the Shadowy figure began to run off down the beach at inhuman speeds. "YO, BATMAN, WHERE YOU GOIN'?!"
"The footage has been making waves online, but with the confirmation of the neck-bites, the figure is coming to be known as "The Gotham Vampire" and several groups have already put out cash rewards for any information that will lead to the figure's capture."
"Victor... It's Michael, i'm in Gotham. It's... It's really bad, i need to meet you.""This had better be important!"
"Look, where can i meet you?""It's too much of a risk to expose myself right now... But i know a place we can meet..."
