(Continuing story…)
As I was heartbroken to see the Oil spill, I’ve did a bit of Detective work, studying on what cause this oil spill, it was Icicle! He also had poor Biff Tannen Hostage!
So I decided to use Temporal Bender, traveling back to November 5th 1955, oh wait it’s April 15 2021!
As I travel back in time, I hear ‘Mr. Sandman’ music playing, then I see Biff walking to the oil rig, a few minutes later I see Icicle, I turn on my heating suit and sneak up on Icicle!
We had all out battle and finally I manage to knock him out and put him behind bars! Finally it’s over! Now I need to get back to the future, to bad the machine is destroyed! Maybe if the storm is coming and have a good chance of…nah it won’t work, Thankfully the oil rig is safe and nothing bad in the water!
The End…
@Alec.Holland are you a fan of Back to the Future? :slightly_smiling_face:

Ok, Miracle Machine. I had to look this one up. :laughing:

So, I’m sitting on my couch, with my kitten curled up next to me, when I see this awful news on the tv.

“Man, I just wish Humanity could just fall back to the Stone Age. The water would be clear, the air would be clear, no electricity, no oil, nothing to mess up the Earth. It would be great,” I mutter to my kitten.

To my left, a great machine that I didn’t see until then burst into life. I barely had time to react as a big wave of energy left the machine and went everywhere. An eerie silence followed.

It took me a while to realize what had happened: when the Justice League showed up, I knew I had messed up pretty bad. But then Aquaman stood up for me (which was very unexpected considering I had dropped my house in his ocean a while back) and Superman seemed to believe me when I told them all what happened.

They took the machine when they left. It was all broken and half melted. I guess they’ll figure it out?

As I was sitting In my booth at McDonald’s (after talking to the police because apparently walking into a McDonald’s with a weapon is ‘frightening’) I see a news report about oil in the ocean and on animals. That just can’t do. One of my friends coincidentally have a temporal bender. I walk outside and keep walking until I come to the beach. Since it’s like 2 in the morning no one is there. I go back a year in time so I can prevent the oil spill from happening. It takes a couple months because I applied to become a boat captain but it takes awhile for me to get accepted and my resume to get looked over. Once everything checks out and my license is approved I get assigned to the boat that had carried the oil. I successfully Captain the boat and prevent the oil from leaking into the ocean. Once everything is over I head to the same McDonald’s and I order a milkshake ,but the ice cream machine is broken.

Since the news said what time the oil spill started I knew when to go back to using my Temporal Bender. First, I take it to a more remote location so there is less damage when it is activated and then I go to the docks where the boat is getting ready to go out. I help them make sure everything is secured so no oil gets spilled.

The Miracle Machine interesting. Don’t know much so this is only based off the description given :sweat_smile:.

I would see the danger in the tc and grab the miracle machine. I only have one miracle.

I would use it to make it that there was only renewable environmentally friendly sources of energy in the world and they were the only ones discovered. So the oil spill would have never happened and the worlds use of environmentally friendly energy. A win win.

As I was heading to my car after a long day at work, I noticed a strange box sitting on the hood of my car. When I opened the box, I saw a plastic superhero figure with no color but a letter M on his chest. His hands were handcuffed and his legs were tied together. There was a note? It said, “Oh foolish man, spawn of Trigon and Servant of Brainiac, your world is coming to an end! First your air and water will be depleted before your pitiful species will have a chance to back!”

There was an Omega symbol at the end. I go home and look at the news. A shipwreck off the coast of the Sahara. Radiation and chemicals are flowing into the Atlantic Ocean. Supposedly a French ship was involved. Eco-Warriors are mobilizing online.

As if the COVID pandemic wasn’t bad enough! Now this. I’m sure Darkseid is taunting humanity. As I ponder the enormity of the problem, I can’t help but wonder how this toy hero couldn’t escape his fate! I look at him and say, “Only a Miracle is going to provide me any solutions!”

Then his eyes glow and sparkles with color before disappearing!

Okay, a maker and Info Tool at my disposal.
For this challenge, there really isn’t anyone to punch, so I will enlist the help from S.T.A.R. Labs. They have an ecological disaster research department. One of the many technologies that they have are specially made algae that can feed on oil and certain plastics. This algae is deployed in the areas of the spill using a fleet of trawlers funded by a grant from Wayne Tech. As the hours pass, the oil is noticeably disappearing. Within days, it is gone from the ocean. Yay science!
