"As always, it is the darkest before the dawn." said the haunting voice of Ghost Rider. Standing on a pier of the Hudson River he turned his skull from the horizon where the sun would soon rise from to look at the woman his gloved hand held by the throat just over the edge of the pier above the water. The only light that was reflected in the water was the fire from his blazing skull and his hellish motorcycle that was just behind him, its flames harmlessly flickering against the wooden pier. "I know what you have done all those years ago Kate." Those empty eye sockets locked on her as he said "As does your deceased twin sister. She is how I know that you were the one who drowned her in this river all those years ago. You may elude punishment from the law of men but you cannot escape your due judgment. Confess your sins to me." demanded the fiery specter in a dangerous tone.

The woman was young, probably 23 years old. Her brown hair was a mess and was halfway done in a bun. She had been dragged from her home considering the trail of cracked pavement and wisps of flame that lead to the conflagrant wheels of his bike and that she was wearing a faded grey shirt and pink pajama pants. "Please" she pleaded, tears running down her face." I was a child, I didn't know-"

"Do not lie to me!" he roared, his voice caused the water to ripple angrily. All of them have tried to deny the truth. Liars until the bitter end. "You knew what you were doing Kate. So did your sister. Jennifer never lived her innocent life because of you." again he looked at her, waiting for her to do as he asked before he gave his Penance Stare. "Confess your sins to me."

She screamed "Help me! Please, someone, HELP MEEE!"

"Put her down." Came a firm, even command from behind him. Someone had clearly heard the screaming. Clark might have been able to knock him out of the way and catch the woman, and get her to safety, but he has no idea what this man is capable of, so he decided against the risk.

"Everything's going to be alright, ma'am." Clark said calmly, to try and reassure the terrified woman dangling over the edge of a pier.

"It's not our place to decide that." Superman replies, staying as calm as possible. He honestly hopes he can reach Ghost Rider. He doesn't want to have to fight him, but he will if it comes down to that. "No matter what crimes they've committed, people deserve the chance to make up for the crimes they've committed. They deserve the chance to try to better themselves after they've been tried for their crime and have served their due sentence."

Superman takes a step forward, "We can't be the judge, jury, and executioner. Not if we want don't want to become like the people we try and fight against."

"If that's true," Something tells him it is, "Then I won't stop her from being arrested or tried for what she's done. But I can't just stand aside and let you do to her what you did to that other man, no matter how much you think she might deserve it." He looks to the woman, and he wants to tell her everything's going to be alright, but he's not sure she could even hear him anymore.

He watches the chain twitch like a snake angling for it's prey, before he looks back to Ghost Rider. "I know you think you're doing the right thing, but this isn't right. Taking revenge isn't going to bring whoever was murdered back to life."
