The team raced through the prison, passing bodies in just about every room. Whatever Joker did, it wasn't his usual killings.
The prisoners and guards all had smiles, but they had looks of fear in their eyes.
“Its just down here to the left !” Quinn shouted. As they turned down the hall, they heard agonizing screams coming from a cell. “We better hurry or this bloke is a goner.” Harkness said.
The screams stopped and two men ran out of the cell and towards the medical bay. “I got this.” Lawton said, aiming down his sights. “Wait!” Mirror Master said. “One of them is a hostage.”
“Did you at least get a look at them?” Deadshot asked, lowering his gun. “The hostage was wearing an apron and pig mask. I only saw the back of a white cloak on the other.”
“Did you say a pig mask?” Waller said through the radio. “That hostage is serial killer and skilled surgeon Professor Pyg. If he's involved Joker already has strong connections.
Get in that cell this instant!”
Deadshot nodded and motioned to move in slowly. As they approached the cell Sam checked through a mirror to see if it was safe. “All clear. Well. So to speak.”
“What the hell does… Jesus Christ.” Clayface said as he entered first. There was a body strapped to a table, with the skin from Jokers face stapled onto him. “That's disgusting.
” Frost said nearly puking.
A Tv screen turned on in the cell. Joker, with a bloody face full of flesh sat in a chair laughing. “Enjoying the sights? I'm laughing til my FACE HURTS!”
“You can't hide forever Clown!” White yelled. “Oh don't act like the tough guy now, Shark. Tell ya what. I'll give you a fighting chance.
If you can tell me who this imposter on the table is, I'll wait an hour for my next attempt on a life.”
“Easy.” Karlo sneered. “This guy was my idol in Arkham. He went by the name Hush. A surgeon who killed people and extracted their facial features to assume the identity of Bruce Wayne.”
Joker snarled. “I never took you for the smart one Clayface. But a deal is a deal. You know who I'm after. You have an hour to get there.”
There was a click down the hall as the Medical doors unlocked. “We need to move fast!” Deadshot said as they ran towards the door.
Joker laughed as the electronic clocks on the walls all turned into countdowns. “Tick tock ‘Heroes’. Time is short.” And with the countdown started it was time to begin phase 2 of his plan.
