  • HTH-JP-01 Training From Krypto

    This is an ongoing story I've been writing that occurs on Earth that is not part of any of my given serials. It is about an American teenage human boy who is empowered to transform into a Hungarian Vizsla Dog with the desire for victorious and sporting activity after an accidental encounter with one of Krypto's doggy aspirin tablets. Enjoy.

    Chapter One

    .
    Being the older brother to his fraternal twin sister Josephine Dorothy Prince, Jason Hartly Prince was currently five foot ten inches tall and he had short brown hair, amber eyes and tanned skin. He dressed casually in a red tee shirt (with the logo and photo of DC Comics' Krypto the Super Dog on it,) white underwear, blue jeans, white socks and Reebok sneakers. He also had a black leather backpack which he kept his white leather gloves (which match the appearance of his sneakers,) various sporting goods and a defense item his government agent parents insisted he always have with him. Unknown to himself, his parents have a GPS tracking chip embedded within his backpack, another within his sneakers and a final chip medically implanted within the back of his neck. Since both parents did government style work, their home household was assigned with two nannies and two butlers as well as two security guards whom each had quite handsome male guard dogs of their own and there was a pair of oriental chauffeurs who were a lot like Bruce Lee. They spoke English, Japanese and Chinese.

    One nanny, one security guard and dog, one butler whom doubled as a chef and one chauffeur were assigned to the two younger siblings who were also fraternal twin siblings. The other nanny, security guard with dog, chef-butler and chauffeur were assigned to Jason and Josephine. The security guard mainly kept an eye on Josephine because she was at that age when boys were all vying for her attention to be her boyfriend. Despite having all of these estate servants, Jason and Josephine attended the public school in McLean, Virginia called Heroton High School, home of the Heroton Hounds. The school was located within three miles from Washington D.C. while it was just half a mile from their estate home in the park. Heroton High was supported by both Arden's Pizza and Saberfang's Freelancers organization and they had both Baseball and basketball teams. Their track team were among the top hundred in the region.

    On this particular afternoon, Jason had just emerged from the drug store after purchasing a bottle of aspirin; medicine useful after baseball practice because dealing with the coach was the cause of many headaches. He then stopped at his favorite park bench where he opened the bottle of aspirin removing the cotton ball from the bottle when out of nowhere, a white dog collided with him knocking him backward off of the bench spilling the aspirin caplets out of the bottle. As he lay there in the grass with the whit canine on top of him, he lifted his head and looked at the dog closely when a glimmer of recognition crossed his face. "My favorite cartoon star Krypto the Super Dog collided with me on my favorite bench. This day just got super awesome." Then he noticed that Krypto wasn't moving seeming to be stunned as he lay on the boy's stomach and lap. "Are you okay, Krypto?" Then he noted that there were two empty aspirin bottles on the ground where he had spilled his aspirin and they all looked alike. Jason was worried now since it appeared that Krypto had eaten what he thought was aspirin but a villain had coated Kryptonite in aspirin powder to look like the real thing. "Don't worry, Krypto. I'll save you." He moved the dog of steel off of his lap to the grass and the first thing afterward was that he checked to make sure Krypto's mouth was clear of any debris and then he grabbed the white dog from behind and he began pumping Krypto's stomach with his hands balled up into fists. "Come on, Krypto... cough it up. I don't want my most favorite canine hero to die."

    When his good deed didn't seem to be working, Jason out of desperation chose to give the white dog of steel mouth to mouth before turning Krypto upside down and then attempting to make him cough out or regurgitate the fake aspirin. Jason repeated this process a few times and it was on the ninth attempt that Krypto regurgitated a horrid amount of fluids directly into Jason's mouth and throat. Whatever was in this stuff made the boy turn green for a moment as he turned and began throwing up himself into the nearby bushes. "Man... Krypto and I are a real mess now. Totally coated in dog vomit outside and in. I don't know what he ate but it tasted awful. He is still my favorite canine hero." After throwing up four times, Jason turned back to Krypto and he picked him up in his arms. "Speak to me, Krypto. Are you still sick?"

    Krypto was coated in and smelled like dog vomit as he managed to force open his eyes and say, "Boy... you look and smell like me. Thanks for making me throw up that Kryptonite pill. One of my arch enemies thought that if I swallowed Kryptonite that I would be too weak to seek out help. What's your name, kid. I want to know who saved my life today."

    "Jason Hartly Prince," the young man said while still holding Krypto in his arms. "You and I need to get cleaned up somewhere. But you know... despite being coated in your vomit, I would do it again if it meant I was helping you, Krypto."

    Krypto raised one eye brow. "Prince...? Are you related to Gerard Klayton Prince from Georgia?"

    Jason replied, "I am first cousin to Lupa-Vega Prince but you probably didn't know this next part... Gerard is not their natural child. He is adopted. He doesn't even have Prince blood. But Leon and Rianne love him none the less. When they adopted him, he was Marshall Clayton Everett But Leon wanted to name a son Gerard so his name was changed."

    Krypto obviously didn't know about that. "You see, I have met Gerard. He hates his middle name of Klayton. If I tell him what his old name was before adoption, he might see about changing his name to something he likes. Gerard Marshall Prince has a nice sound to it. That is why I asked you if you were related. He's been helping out Ace the Bat Hound."

    "I need to pick up my aspirin caplets that I spilled when you collided with me," said Jason. "Then I will take you back to my estate home where you and I can get this vomit cleaned off of our bodies. I would really like to be your boyfriend, Krypto. The other teenagers razz me for liking a cartoon dog aimed at young boys. So if they saw you with me on ice cream shake outings, they might have to swallow their words because you would have time for a guy like me. The ice cream shakes would be my treat. I promise."

    Krypto blushed although he was smiling. "To get a boyfriend all I had to do was vomit all over myself. I hope you didn't catch anything from my vomit when you swallowed some of it."

    Jason made a face as he carefully picked up the aspirin and filled the two bottles present. He couldn't really tell which ones were his and which ones were from Krypto's bottle. "I was trying to forget that I accidentally swallowed some of your vomit. But as I said before, I would do it again as long as it helped you."

    Krypto chuckled. "Where do you go to school, Jason?"

    Jason replied, "Heroton High right here in the Memorial Park. It is a public high school although the instructors seem alien part of the time. But there are a few I really like. The school mascot is the Heroton Hound. I've worn the mascot costume once. It is a lot of fun."

    Once Jason had picked up the aspirin, he put the bottles into his backpack and then he picked up Krypto in his arms once again and said, "Now to head home and see about getting this goop washed off of our bodies. Your house mate, Rudolph, will probably think you wallowed with the Vagabond hounds if you come home smelling like this." And Jason walked off while still carrying Krypto in his arms as he headed toward the back gate of the family estate so he could honor Krypto with a decent bath.

    "Right in here, Krypto," said Jason. "For times like this, I am glad we have a back entrance; I wouldn't want my siblings to gag on our aroma."

    Krypto and boy submerged themselves into the whirlpool spa bath tub as Jason grabbed a sponge and began to wash the Kryptonian canine in thick lathering shampoo for dogs. During the bath, Krypto found himself getting more kisses and compassionate love and care from the boy. Krypto found himself returning the affections although he knew he shouldn't be getting compassionate with a human boy, but he was so infatuated with the human he often found himself getting a little too close throughout the bath.

    During the rinsing in clean water, Krypto stated, I apologize for getting close with you in the bath tub. I don't know what's wrong with me. I am normally more clean minded than that. Did I hurt you with the Kryptonian express?"

    Jason replied as he helped to get the shampoo suds out of Krypto's fur. "No, it was actually a lot of fun. Besides, earlier you said you were glad you now had a boyfriend. I guess toon physics prevented any damages or injuries. Do your producers know you are on Earth?"

    Krypto said, "I don't think they do; Snooky Wookums tricked me into crossing over to Earth over Washington D.C. when he popped the kryptonite aspirin pill into my muzzle and I accidentally swallowed it. Then I crash landed into you on the park bench. Thank you again for saving my life, Jason. You are my new favorite boy and boyfriend."

    Jason said, "How come I can understand you without Kevin's animal translator device?"

    Krypto smirked. "Because that device is not for real; it is a prop that is used as an excuse in the show so humans can understand animals. You understand me because I can speak all languages the same as Superman. In fact, I better send him a message to let him know that you saved my life."

    Jason then affixed Krypto's now cleaned up collar back around his neck. "I got all of the nasty vomit out of the cracks of your communicator. You wouldn't want to bowl Rudolph and Kevin over later on, would you? Ace might have repulsive comments about your smelling like dog vomit."

    Krypto smiled. "Streaky and I have been in worse smelling stuff. Usually after a toxic dip in stinky stuff, we go to a professional groomer in Meta-Star City. They claim they can clean and groom anything. Not like we are trying to challenge that claim."

    Jason hugged Krypto one more time before stepping back to let the white Kryptonian canine make his call to Superman.

    "This is Krypto calling Superman. Come in please." "Superman speaking. Where are you, Krypto? Ace and Streaky are looking for you when you failed to show up for this afternoon's filming session in the park." "Snooky Wookums tricked me into crossing over to Earth here in Washington D.C. and he fired a Aspirin coated Kryptonite pill into my open muzzle and I swallowed it. I almost died but a nice boy forced me to vomit up the pill and he saved my life. He then took me back to his place to give me a clean bath so we both didn't smell like dog vomit. We got this stuff all over the both of us so we needed to bathe. I am currently still at Jason Prince's estate near Heroton High School in McLean, Virginia. Both of his parents are in the secret service; one in the C.I.A. and the other in the F.B.I. Jason saved my life, Kal. I love him." "I will come and pick you up, Krypto. Just stay with Jason and maybe we can reward Jason with something really nice, like a modern junior hero clubhouse where he can stay in communication with you when you both have free time." "That's a great idea, Kal. But wait until you see this estate. It has the best security and... Wait a moment... One of the estate guards and his police dog just came in and are looking at Jason and I."

    The security guard said to Jason, "Are you okay, Jason. And is that dog who I think it is?"

    The police dog sniffed Krypto and said in canine, "I always thought you were cleaner than this, Krypto. Jason means well but he doesn't know how to properly groom a dog like us. And he smells like you do. Did he force you to vomit or something?"

    Krypto chose to tell the Police Dog the truth; everything, including how Jason saved his life. "Superman is going to be coming by to pick me up; however, I want to continue seeing Jason. He did just save my life."

    Jason was telling the estate guard the same thing Krypto was saying although in English. "I am fine, Henry. Although I may need another bath later. I tried to wash the vomit off of Krypto and I both so we didn't cause the estate flowers to wilt from our accidental stench."

    Henry smiled. "If Superman is coming, then I will alert the other estate guard so they don't open fire on him when he comes to the estate. With your parents off on missions, we are tasked to protect the children in the estate itself. Since you finally got to meet Krypto, does this mean that he is going to let you join his fan club or let you go on adventures with him or even get you a guest spot on his TV show?"

    Jason smiled. "That would be an awesome one time opportunity and then people could learn that I saved Krypto from Kryptonite during a time when he wasn't filming."

    Krypto then said in English, "If you want that experience, Jason, I will make the arrangements with my producer and we can have you in one of my TV show episodes. Although you will need your parent's permission to be my guest for that privilege."

    Jason remarked, "Snooky will be pissed when he sees that you survived the Kryptonite pill."

    Krypto smiled. "I'm just glad it wasn't red Kryptonite, Jason. Or else you might be affected by the effects of those weird things from my show."

    Henry said, "Brutus and I need to resume our patrol; your sister hasn't come home yet, Jason."

    Jason smirked. "Last I saw of her, she was having the chauffeur drive her over to Wally's house to get help with a homework session. As you know, Wally is the computer and nerd genius of Heroton High. Totally trustworthy."

      Chapter Three

      .
      Jason then said, "Now that I don't smell like I rolled in my own manure, I need to head back out to the park and make sure everything I had before Krypto's collision with me is collected and intact for bringing back to the estate."

      Krypto commented, "In the event that you find the Kryptonite pill, you should take a lead lined box with you to properly store the dangerous to Kryptonians item within for proper disposal. Superman told me to stay here to await his arrival for my trip home. Even though I am alive, I still feel a little weak."

      Jason went and fetched a lead-lined box that his father owned and he showed it to Krypto whom verified that it was an official item to use for storing Kryptonite.

      And then Jason headed back to the park to look for left over goods that belonged to him. When he arrived at the odorous locale that the local joggers were choosing to avoid due to the smell of dog vomit all over the crash zone, Jason began picking up the rest of his belongings which were still at the location. As he was picking up various things, he soon noticed a pulsing glowing green and red jewel in the deeper grasses nearby. "That must be the Kryptonite pill." He then brought out the lead-lined box and prepared to pick up the gem to place into the box. "Now to put this away so that-" and as he touched the glowing gem in the midst of his saying Krypto's name, the 'O' was cut short as he was shocked by the Kryptonite pill as it nearly electrocuted him.

      "Krypt-AR!!" In that moment of mystical surprise, he felt a lightning bolt strike his body as the Kryptonite pill ceased to exist. Standing where the young man had been bent over to grab the Kryptonite was now a golden roan colored Hungarian Retriever with a golden collar which had a Lightning Bolt in place of an 'S' making it different from Krypto's collar. The collar had a white cape connected to it with stylish gold trim making it similar to Captain Marvel's cape but made shorter for a dog.

      "Man... what just happened. Where did the Kryptonite pill go?" Jason had not noticed just yet that he was now in a feral canine form until he went to stand up look around the area and he found himself floating in mid air. "How did I get into the air?" That was when he began to look himself over in surprise. "Why do I have Captain Marvel's cape and lightning bolt? Hey! I'm a red hound! I am going to need Krypto's help for sure now!"

      He then landed away from the jogger's trail near the trees. "SHAZAM!" Nothing happened. "That isn't the word! Oh shit; How do I power down? What was I saying when I got hit by the lightning bolt?" He ran back over his memory as he slowly recalled the sentence he was in the process of saying before he got shocked. "I was saying, Now to put this away so that Krypto won't be hurt by it... except just as I was trying to say Krypto that was when I got the pee zapped out of me and... I cried out AR instead of O. Let's try that and see if I am right." He struck a pose near the tree and he shouted, "KRYPTAR!" And in a flash of magical lightning, the roan hound was replaced by the human boy whom was still in his usual clothes. "Oh man... I created a new age canine version of Captain Marvel. But that has a corny sound to it. Captain Dog is pretty lame. I'll just go the simple route and call myself Hero the Hound for now until I can figure out something better later."

      Jason quickly picked up the rest of his belongings and then he began jogging back toward the estate. As he arrived, he saw Superman floating nearby. "Hi Superman. I'm Jason Prince. I'll vouch for you to enter the estate. Krypto is this way." Once Superman landed on the ground, he followed the boy inside the estate and in through the rear entrance to where Krypto was laying next to the bath tub still looking weak. "He is right here, Superman. Krypto said he felt weak. The Kryptonite pill disintegrated as I tried to box it up in a lead lined box. I had never heard of Kryptonite doing this before. Before it destroyed itself, I was in the process of picking it up and it shocked me with what felt like a lightning bolt."

      Superman asked, "What did it do to you, Jason?"

      Jason said, "I was going to ask Krypto for advice on this but since you are asking, maybe you can help me with this as well." The boy walked over to a spot in front of both Kryptonians and he stood in a pose as he shouted, "KRYPTAR!" And in a flash of magical lightning, the human boy whom in his normal clothes was replaced by a golden roan colored Hungarian Retriever with a golden collar which had a Lightning Bolt in place of an 'S' making it different from Krypto's collar. The collar had a white cape connected to it with stylish gold trim making it similar to Captain Marvel's cape but made shorter for a dog. "And now I am Hero the Hound. I refuse to call myself Captain Dog or Marvel Dog since both sound corny. I freaked out when this first happened. But I got my cool back when I figured out how to change back to my human form."

      Superman said, "Was the Kryptonite pulsing between green and red before it destroyed itself?"

      Jason as Hero replied, "Yes it was."

      The man of steel said, "Mystic Kryptonite can only effect humans. It has no effect on Kryptonians. When it gave you its power, it destroyed itself afterwards."

      Jason asked, "How long does this power last, Superman?"

      Superman steeled himself up for a possibly upset human boy. "Forever. There is no cure to Mystic Kryptonite contamination."

      Jason said, "So when I touched this stuff with my bare hands, I allowed it to empty its power into my body?"

      Superman replied, "Sad but true. The best we can do for you is to help train you in the powers you now have and to help you in building a headquarters building where you can go for privacy as Hero the Hound. Since the powers gave you the equivalent to Captain Marvel's powers, you likely have all of his strengths and weaknesses as well."

      Jason asked, "Will I be able to call on Canine Elders like Billy Batson did in the Seventies live-action TV show?"

      Superman smiled. "You likely could. Krypto will still be your number one fan since you did save his life. What kind of clubhouse headquarters would you like to have?"

      Jason smiled as he shot a wink at Krypto. "Could I have a canine sphinx that looks like Krypto overlooking the nearby river? The ground entrance near the hind leg and the lower jaw of the dog's muzzle be able to open when a flying hero like myself, Krypto or you approaches it. The main headquarters be inside the head and training rooms inside the rest of the body. Maybe make the canine sphinx like a flight capable star ship which you guys could activate when the base needed to be moved."

        Chapter Four

        .
        Watching Superman build the Canine Sphinx of Solitude was inspiring. Jason even got to meet Krypto's space going cousin, the super canine, Dynamo, a canine dedicated to galactic construction projects. He brought in the materials that Superman requested from red sun worlds; thus making the clubhouse headquarters more powerful than ever. The Dog Stars transported in a star ship engine with a millennium lifetime power core. The only reward Brainy and her crew wanted was to see Jason change into and out of Hero the Hound. Afterward, they swore in Jason as an honorary Dog Star before departing for the distant sectors in space. When the construction ended, Jason got a tour of his alter ego's new headquarters as well as an instructional for how the computers aboard the Canine Sphinx operated. While doing this, Superman contacted the Bat-Computer where Alfred Pennyworth answered the incoming call. "Bat Cave. Oh Hello Superman. Master Bruce was asking where you were earlier. The Riddler teamed up with Lex Luthor again and they are causing trouble in Meta-Star City. Batman told me to tell you if you called in that he could really use your help."

        Hero the Hound's head looked into the camera and said, "Just have Robbie the Robin tell Riddler his life story; that would end the alliance immediately. That would be like having Mr. Mxyzptlk go personally bother the Riddler, or better, Robbie, Mr. Mxyzptlk and B-a-t-M-i-t-e."

        Superman quickly said, "No, Hero. Mr. Mxyzptlk would tire of that game if I wasn't there personally. And the Mite only desires to bother Batman himself. Robbie should be enough. Alfred, send Batman a message that I am on my way. Also let Bat-Hound know that Krypto will be staying here at the Canine Sphinx of Solitude in Washington D.C. here on Earth until he regains his strength. Snooky Wookums almost killed him with a Kryptonite pill. A nice boy saved my dog's life. We just set up a clubhouse for the boy which is why I have been on radio silence."

        "I will let them know. Ace will likely want to come and personally check on Krypto. Despite being the dark hound detective, he really cares about Krypto. Alfred out."

        Superman looked to Hero the Hound. "I can personally tune out Robbie's life story. I am glad the real Robin sidekicks cannot do what that little bird can do. We are building you a duplicate of your base near Angel City on QC Planet. Within, there will be a transporter shortcut between your base and that base. Brainy and Dynamo were getting that set up while we were busy here. And now for the transporter operation instructions." Superman stepped over to the transporter and as he stood upon one of the eight pads, he said, "Computer. Angel City transport. Now." And Star Trek style, Superman vanished out of the Canine Sphinx Headquarters.

        Krypto smiled. "That will make it easier for me to come visit you for our dates, Jason. Remember, they are making the other base identical to this base; same features in both bases. Since Superman is giving me permission to recover here on Earth, I will show you a trick I have used before." He glanced at the computer and said, "Computer, open a Yellow Sun Lamp over my resting position, please." Directly over Krypto's recovery pillows a panel in the ceiling opened and a yellow sun lamp began to shine down upon his body. "Always be polite to your computer. Within an hour, I will have my strength back. And while we are waiting, I think you should practice the 'speaking to the elders' like you mentioned to Superman before the headquarters build. At least find out who they are."

        Hero the Hound struck his pose as he focused on a blank monitor screen. "Oh Canine Elders... meek, strong and wise... Appear before my seeking eyes!"

        Within the monitor, energy began to form and swirl until a collection of Canine Beings appeared in a group. One at a time, they began their introductions. "I am Krypton, the canine spirit of Kryptonian Power." - "I am Rigel the Beta, galactic hunter of Orion's stellar Pack." - "I am Yeta Butez, the Sirian canine of Sex and Compassion." - "I am Procyon, the scout of the seeking path." - "I am Tyl Turais, the dragon voyager." - "I am Amon Anubis, the guardian of the passage." - "And I am Romula Lupercala, the protector of the night. All canine children are under my protection." Upon a nearby wall of their meeting cavern in full view was their names in a list along with what they respresented. It of course spelled out KRYPTAR. Tyl then said, "Just as the Argo was piloted by Jason of the Argonauts, our newest canine hero is named Jason and he is a Prince from the canine lineage." Romula (being the only female among them) commented, "Although you called out our pack name as an accident, Jason Prince, we approve of your magnificent form. Let the white of your cape represent the purity of your heart and the gold will represent Luna's gaze in your heroic journey to help others. The roan coloration of your body will be the dedication of fire for which your resolve will remain strong. Call upon us any time you need guidance within the world." As a group, they said, "So speaketh us all!" And then their images faded from the monitor.

        Krypto smiled. "They were awesome, Jason, just as you are."

        Jason said, "When I accidentally called out their pack name, they gave me their abilities. that is why I get this heroic canine form. And one of those abilities is sex and compassion from the studliest youngest member of their pack. So my good looks in canine form comes from Yeta and I will admit that he aroused me. I will likely have dreams tonight about him. Even in my human form." He ended up chuckling even though he didn't mean anything wrongful about the reference. Yeta was HOT! And he knew it!

        At that moment, Ace the Bat-Hound arrived on the transport pad where he leaped off and padded over to Krypto. "Are you okay, good buddy? We were worried sick about you. Even Jimmy the Rat was asking about you. Night threatened to turn Snooky into a feline skin coat. Ignatius whispered to me that he was glad someone else was getting your sponsor son's glare for a change."

        Krypto smiled. "My Sponsor Boy has a list of villains he wants to rip the hide off of. By the way, Ace, meet Jason Prince, currently known as Hero the Hound. Despite the collar and cape, he does not want to be called Captain nor Marvel Canine nor Dog. He is using Hero until he can figure something better out later."

        Ace then said, "That might be a good idea to have two separate identities depending upon which world he is on at the moment. On Earth, he would be Hero the Hound. On QC Planet, he could use the other name whatever that name ends up being. Strike a pose for me, Hero, and I will scan you using the portable Bat-Computer."

        One pose and scan later later with his mouth open and his tongue lolled out, the results came up on the AI of the portable Bat-Computer. "Canine. Match. Has. Been. Found. Subject. Is. A. Species. Known. As. The. Vizsla. This. Is. A. Hungarian. Royal. Hunting. Hound. Preferred. Among. The. Nobles. Of. Hungary. Easily. Related. To. The. Retrievers. Of. Both. England. And. America. Picture. And. Species. Information. Provided. Projecting. Image. On. File." And before them in holographic form was the typical Vizsla looking young hot and playful. Much like the pose Hero had just made earlier.

        Krypto said, "Truly amazing, Jason. You are a Vizsla, a rare breed of Pointer. I am a Retriever myself so I suppose the ending form just made sense."

        Jason then said, "When I have to be on QC Planet, I will call myself Victory the Vizsla. But here on Earth, I'll use the simplistic Hero the Hound."

          Chapter Five
          .
          After Ace had departed to go conduct a patrol in Meta Star City, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and Night the Superdog arrived via the transporter where both animals gave Krypto a loving hug as well as an energy meal prepared by Rudolph.

          Night said, "Give the word, dad; and I will wipe Snooky Wookums out of existence. I really hate it when your set mates act outside of the filming sessions. It makes me think the Shady Producers are up to no good again to get me out into public to fill in for you."

          Krypto just hugged Night fondly and whispered, "No, Harold. That would make your public image into a villain. And I like you just the way you are. I am glad you can change back into your human form these days." He released the black dog of steel as he turned to Hero/Jason. "Night just brought up an important point, Jason. If anyone who looks like a filming producer asks to get you into a TV show, you must tell them that you already have a contract with Warner Brothers. Even though it isn't true; if you say anything else, these crummy bums will bother you for all eternity. They wouldn't let my sponsor boy finish the high school he was originally attending. They tried every trick in the book to get him to be in public so they could illegally film him without his consent. This instance with Snooky isn't the first time something like this has happened. Since I was the Sponsor father in the family household and Night was listed as my unofficial cousin, the shady bleeps thought that by putting me out of commission, it would force Night to have to come out and assume all of my patrols and missions just so they could film him."

          Night growled at the memory. "I had to lawyer up to make them lay off. But they occasionally forget that I have lawyers and they pull stupid stunts like this. But you do have a nice canine appearance, Jason. Since you are near Apollo the Wonder Dog's territory, you can likely get membership into his K9 Justice International team. His filming team do not ever try any hanky panky tricks to make a quick buck. His crew knows how to make me smile."

          Then as if he heard them talking about him, Apollo arrived via the transporter and said, "Did the dark hound detective with no sense of humor already leave?"

          Night went over and he hugged Apollo before bringing the golden Olympian hound to meet with Hero/Jason. "And this is the result of the shady producers latest stunt to get me out into public, Apollo. Jason Prince is Hero the Hound whom has the powers of Captain Marvel. He was zapped by Mystic Kryptonite."

          Apollo sniffed Hero over politely. "Now that I have memorized your scent, Jason, I can refer to you as an ally to us East Coast super canines. I am a human boy named Damian Cedalia from Rosemark, which is northeast of Nashville, Tennessee. I got transformed magically and I am still learning what all I can do. On QC Planet, Washington D.C. is called Angel City. And that is where I live. When I saw Dynamo and the Dog Stars building the Canine Sphinx of Solitude, I naturally checked it out. Nice place; I like it."

          Night said, "If Jason ever does want to be in a TV show, I will have to take him to the Union and get him registered. At the moment, he is open game to the Shady Producers. I will also have to escort him to the Powers Registration Center in Meta Star City so he can get his official registration made. At the moment, you are not registered as a hero nor a villain. Getting registered helps to slow down illegal filming on a new powered animal. Right dad?"

          Krypto sat up in his Yellow Sun Lamp cushion and said, "I am so glad you brought that up, Harold." He looked to Jason. "He is right. We need to get you registered as Hero the Hound and get you an official Union sign up officiated. Mine and Superman's personal Director, Scott Jeralds, can help us in getting you the right treatment, Jason."

          Jason then said, "We still need to get my parents' permission, Krypto. And both are still on government missions."

          Krypto looked to Night, Apollo and Rudolph. "Jason's Parents both work for the government agencies. The C.I.A. and the F.B.I. So whatever involvement we do with Jason has to be done carefully." He then ate a few of the pancakes. "These are so delicious. Have one, Jason. Rudolph makes the best pancakes."

          Jason picked one up and he sniffed it. "Rudolph? Do you use clean and fresh ingredients?"

          Rudolph arched an eye as he replied, "I make them from scratch; what is the problem?"

          Jason held the pancake out for the other animals to smell. "I smell something that I have never smelled before in the pancake mix. It almost makes me sicker than accidentally swallowing Krypto's vomit; and that was a nasty accident."

          Rudolph sniffed the pancake but it was normal to him. Night and Apollo sniffed it next. Night was like Krypto and could not detect anything out of the ordinary. Apollo however said, "I think I know what he is smelling, guys. Over at our place in Angel City, we have an anti-Toonium water filter connected to our plumbing faucets. He is smelling the Toonium in the liquids that you mix into the dry ingredients and Toonium in a human might make him lose his human form all together. I know you meant well to offer to share your meal with Jason, but he cannot eat this stuff the way it was made for you, Krypto."

          Rudolph then said, "Oh I am so sorry. I never even thought about it. I will make it up to you, Jason, by making you fresh pancakes with clean ingredients. All beverages on QC Planet contain trace amounts of Toonium. Damien learned this after they had the filters on their plumbing his brother brought in a six-pack of sodas and the Toonium Detector alarm began to go crazy. After filtering the sodas through the purification device, it reduced the taste something fierce while making the sodas taste almost like Diet Cola."

          Apollo said, "We thought they were awful after that. It might have been better to drink liquid Ex-Lax. We have supplies brought in from Earth these days."

          Rudolph said, "Since that could be an issue for you, Jason, make sure you get all of your baths and meals here on Earth. If you ever get any Toonium on your body in either form, go to the Yuskay Groomers in Angel City immediately for an emergency detox. Krypto and I will cover all of the charges for the service. Since you saved Krypto from the Kryptonite, we want you to stay safe in your new life."

          Jason smiled. "Thanks Rudolph. Is it okay for me to hug and kiss you?"

          Rudolph nodded his head with a smile and a wink before Jason powered down and gave the reindeer the promised attention.

            Chapter Six
            .
            It was a few days later and Jason's parents were finally home from their secret missions. With the K9 Justice members as his witness, Jason confronted his parents to show them what power had been gifted upon him in the past week. "...and while I did save Krypto's life from the Kryptonite pill, my encounter with Mystic Kryptonite was not expected. And now for the proof behind this story. Behold..." And Jason stepped out into the open section of the family room and he turned to face his parents as he said the word. "Kryptar!" And in a flash of magical lightning, the human boy whom in his normal clothes was replaced by a golden roan colored Hungarian Retriever with a golden collar which had a Lightning Bolt in place of an 'S' making it different from Krypto's collar. The collar had a white cape connected to it with stylish gold trim making it similar to Captain Marvel's cape but made shorter for a dog. "And now I am Hero the Hound with all of Shazam/Captain Marvel's powers." And he demonstrated the powers for his parents. "Because this happened to me and Krypto wants to personally sponsor my heroic career and the possibility of my being in his TV show, I will need your parental permission to do these things; I also want to join Apollo's K9 Justice International team since it would be handy for all of us to help each other and they could help me when I got stymied with a situation. Kryptar!" And in a flash of lightning, Jason returned to his normal human form. "So... what is running through your minds?"

            His father asked, "And Superman said this was permanent, son?"

            Jason replied, "I asked him about a cure and he said that the effects of Mystic Kryptonite on Humans was irreversible. My powers are here to stay unless there is a cure to Mystic Kryptonite and no one seems to be volunteering any information on the subject."

            His mother then said, "Your canine friends may think my suggestion over the top, but if you want my permission to be running around with the hero dogs, you will need to be fitted with a tracking chip and we will need to get you registered with the government empowerment program which is overseen by General Osric Sloan. He is already angry most of the time when empowerment accidents occur on Earth and then the so-called heroic members of QC Planet quickly migrate the newest hero off to their filming mecca for supposed training. Once you are registered with Sloan, you will have my permission. If your friends are truly on the side of justice, they will permit you to do this."

            Night the Superdog then said, "Mrs. Prince... while you may believe in what you are saying, a few of us have had bad encounters with General Sloan. He harassed Captain Rabbit, Moonfire and Supermouse, shortly after their empowerments; he even went so far as to steal Supermouse's DNA to duplicate the empowerment process on ordinary teenagers claiming that his actions were justified in making an American based superhero team for the defense of the country. The same purpose that the U.S. Army already exists to do. A super powered G.I. Joe in real life, minus the special training in weapons and armor. He is lucky he didn't end up in a law suit from the teenagers' parents. Sloan even went so far as to say that anyone who develops special powers becomes government property without the parental say-so. So if you involve Sloan in your son's life, your permission be damned... you will have no rights to complain once he is in charge of your son. Besides, we are not kidnapping Jason away from home since his headquarters has a shortcut between the local park by the river and Angel City on QC Planet. Jason will continue to school at Heroton High School and live right here at home. If you want Sloan to monitor your son's training that we are all too glad to provide, that is permissible. But if Sloan takes charge, we wouldn't blame Jason a bit if he wanted to run away from the stupid man."

            Mr. Prince then said, "Night... you mentioned 'some of us' and then you named three heroes who are not even present. Why should we take your warning seriously?"

            Apollo then stepped forth. "Let me tell you who they really are and who they are related to and then you can make investigative inquiries to your hearts content. After you do this, you will see why we are not happy with Sloan. While Night's accident occurred through deliberate villain activity while he, as Harold Dangers, was in Cheer Bear's Sponsor Family program, the rest of my team have human based stories. I am Damien Cedalia from Rosemark Tennessee; a filming accident occurred which struck me with magical powers from four of QC Planet's most powerful magical female citizens as they were filming a lost episode of the Justice League on Earth. They had to get the Yuskay Groomers to provide me with a solution to my transformation. Once Sloan found out that I had been taken to Angel City, he showed up there to have me arrested and shipped back to Earth for not telling the government about my accident. It was none of his business since my parents were right there, originally, to give me permission to move to Angel City. Warpdrive was a teen aged boy from Australia named Nick Kane. His father is a minister and his mother is a school teacher. He was touring a dog snacks factory in his native country; the factory makes the treats that Krypto and other animated canines love a lot. Nick fell into a mixing vat of fresh ingredients and he was rescued by Power Dog. When Sloan learned of Warpdrive, he went after him and Sloan nearly got killed by one of Night's team members... Kangaroo King. An animated marsupial were-roo superhero from Aussieland. Nick is not even a U.S. Citizen and Sloan went after him. Do the math, folks. Now, back on topic... Captain Rabbit is the adopted son of Leon Prince... Gerard Klayton Prince. The son of a fellow agent; so do you really think Sloan will regard your standing when he learns of your son's empowerment? Moonfire is the offspring legacy of Demon Hunters albeit retired. And he is employed by Davyd Arden of Arden's pizza. His father works at a wharf sponsored by Arden and the Zamak Corporation. Sloan went to talk to Moonfire on location and Arden was standing right there along with his lawyers. Supermouse is the son of Atlanta Georgia's foremost Highway Patrol Commissioner: Johnathan Williams. Joseph "Joey" Williams almost died multiple times over during the course of his career. And stupid Sloan challenged the Founder Core of QC Planet to try to get Supermouse back to Earth. He lost, obviously. And then he stole Supermouse's DNA for his mad scientist experiments to make his own empowered team. So Sloan is no more than a government thief; the kind that real heroes arrest and lock up. And you really think he had good intentions?"

            Warpdrive then spoke up. "Jason didn't 'ave to tell youse blokes anything; 'e wanted yer permission to be in Krypto's TV Show. 'e loves that dog."

            Mr. Prince then raised his voice. "Jason will not be doing anything unless properly registered with the government! That is my final word!"

            Apollo then grinned as he winked at Night. "I told you they might pull martial law when Jason chose to be honest. That's why I prepared an ace in the hole before this meeting occurred." He then raised a paw up to his communicator which was on his collar. "Did you hear all that, Ms. Seasons?"

            The Pentagon Royal Operations Manager, Hannah Seasons, appeared via teleportation in the room beside the dogs. Unlike the hero dogs present, she was definitely human and a powerful Psionic to boot. She was the one who gave C.I.A. agents their missions when the head of the C.I.A. was too busy to do it himself. "Crystal clear, Apollo. I am so glad you set up that open call so that Sloan and I could overhear how this meeting went. Of course when Mr. Prince raised his voice, I think everyone in the Pentagon could hear his loud mouth. Including Leon. Osric Sloan does not have government permission to force any citizen of the Planet Earth to come back to Washington D.C. against their will. This is the official word of the General of Generals as well as a joint agreement of the United Nations Council. I think Jason's plan is a good one; continue to school locally while receiving training from his canine friends. Also, before the formation of QC Planet, the animated heroes lived and schooled locally within whatever country they originated from. In fact, one of my old colleagues is an empowered Admiral in Siberia, Russia. I am sure everyone knows about Admiral KaBoom, although her real name is Grom Groza although more worldly known as Detona the explosive woman."

            Hannah then said, "As long as Jason sticks to his plan, Sloan will never come after him. And he will not be monitoring the training sessions. Sloan has duties of his own to complete."

            Mr. Prince sighed. "As long as Jason is registered and protected, I will give my permission."

              Chapter Seven
              .
              Jason hated having to have a microchip implanted into his neck and the first chance he would get, he would have this thing removed and transferred into something that made more sense to him to have it. Who knew that gaining super powers would cause his parents to become like jailers? Warpdrive was completely right; Jason didn't have to tell his parents anything. In fact, if he could undo that mistake, he would. It was better if his parents never learned about his empowerment accident. Now they wanted him chipped like a criminal.

              Fortunately for Jason, Night was a crafty human turned dog. One of his team members was a magical mare. She had the magical ability to remove and transfer tracking chips without so much as touching them. One afternoon at the Krypto Sphinx Clubhouse, Night arrived via transporter along with Arcana, the number one stage horse sponsored by Zatanna. Jason was in his human form doing homework when the two arrived.

              "Hi Jason. I brought an ally to get that tracking chip out of your neck. You just have to say where you want the chip transferred to. I am just glad it doesn't double as a microphone."

              Jason smiled at Night as he gave the all-black super dog a hug. "If it came with a microphone, I would be cursing all the time just to spite the damned thing. As for where I want it transferred to, since my parents love tracking chips so much, mine should be duplicated and one each transferred into their necks so they could be found in an emergency. I am starting to think that Warpdrive nailed it when he said that I didn't have to choose to tell my parents anything. They are treating me as if I became a criminal. If I could undo my telling them about my powers, I would make it so right now. But I cannot change events in time so I guess I am screwed due to my own stupidity."

              Arcana smiled at Night and said, "Are you thinking what I am thinking, Night? Since Jason wants to undo his mistake and it hasn't been three days as yet, perhaps your Big Brother could process this request. Of course, if we help Jason with this, then everything we did in the last couple of days would also be undone. Although Hannah Seasons might catch on to what we did to fix things, she doesn't seem like the prick Jason's parents chose to be in regards to the tracking chip and the forced registration."

              Jason looked hopeful at that point. "I will give you both a kiss on the lips if you agree to help me with this request. I would have to fulfill this before the change or we wouldn't remember making the offer."

              Night grinned. Remember what Jason reflected as for Night being crafty; it still applied. "Timesheart Tiger would surely help out with this since it seems like a viable Care Bear type mission. This tracking chip nonsense would be like if the Care Bears chipped every child they ever helped. Make with the kisses, Jason, and I will contact my Big Brother and inform him of what we need done and why."

              Jason kissed Night on the muzzle first and then he repeated the action with Arcana. He was glad that they both tasted nicer than Krypto's saliva tasted the day he met the super dog. And seemingly after that, the scene faded away like walking through a snowstorm and Jason found himself standing with Krypto, the rest of K9 Justice International, Timesheart Tiger and Hannah Seasons while meeting with the boy's parents.

              "...and after I saved Krypto's life from the Kryptonite pill, Superman and Dynamo constructed me a new Krypto Sphinx clubhouse overlooking the nearby river as a reward. Krypto would like for me to visit a taping of his TV show with your permission; and as a bonus, he agreed to pal around with me occasionally locally since he appreciates my saving him."

              Krypto said, "Your boy's first aid training thankfully did the trick for making me cough up the nasty pill. So may we have permission to invite your son to a taping of my show? There is also a ton of cool swag he could bring home from the set. Your heroic boy is number one in my book."

              Hannah then said, "With the upcoming closure of QC Planet, perhaps the set visitation should wait until after Camp World opens for business. It turned out that Albert Atticus was not even the real Albert in charge of the project. Albert Talbot, the creator of Holiday Land in Southern Georgia, owned the original QC concept and Timesheart Tiger went and saved the man's life from what the nasty Cat Lord tried to do to him. QC Planet will be liquidated and dismantled and then after a thorough clean up, all citizens and newly reconstructed cities based on the originals will be placed on Camp World. C.A.M.P stands for Cartoon, Animation, and Motion Picture. With a cleaner environment, Toonium will be a thing of the past and no longer an issue for toons nor their fans. King Kazma of the Japanese anime Summer Wars is also building a world of his own which is to be called Live Anime World or Kazma's Law for short. Krypto has no intention of kidnapping Jason; So you should permit them to spend time together."

              Mrs. Prince said, "Since Krypto is your favorite hero and you saved his life, Jason, I think it is a fine idea for you to spend some quality time with him providing you keep your school work up to date and his time with you does not interrupt his schedule."

              Krypto smiled. "I live with Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Mrs. Prince, so your son could meet the famous reindeer as well."

              Mr. Prince looked Jason over for a moment and then he looked to Krypto. "If you are going to hanging out with Jason, then perhaps he should be fitted with a communicator so you can call him before you make a trip to come see him. That way, he could make the proper preparations for your visit."

              One way or another, Jason seemed as if he was going to end up with a tracking chip either from his parents or from his hero. But at least if he got one from his hero, the damned thing would not be stuck in his neck. This time around, they were not mentioning his having powers at all. And it seemed to be working. A secret identity apparently was an important factor.

              Hannah then said, "I don't see why he would need one, Agent Prince. He isn't going to be joining any super hero teams so having a communicator doesn't make any sense. He could simply add Krypto's caller ID to his cellphone list and he could share his ID with Krypto. My son carries a cellphone during his outings with the California Teen Force. I rarely ever call him, not like my old colleague Black Bart does with his daughter. Whipping her backside until the glow can be seen from some outrageous celestial body deep in space."

              Most of those gathered simply rolled their eyes with a smile since everyone knew of the spiel in Hazardous Materials.

              And that ended the special meeting with Jason's parents. Leave it to Timesheart Tiger to undo and manage a screwed up time event so a second chance could be done right. Jason would owe the tiger a kiss on the muzzle as well for his involvement in undoing a tracking chip ultimatum. And parting ways with Sloan was also a God Send as well. Other heroes were still dealing with the stupid General and Jason would not want to be the newest target of the real life version of G.I. Joe.

              Eventually, Jason was back in the Krypto Sphinx on the afternoon he was working on his homework from school when the stunt doubles arrived via the teleporter for a visit.
