Brightburn by Jaysin-Scotts

  • Recommended by a54321
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Disclaimer: I don't own Brightburn or any of its contents. I just really enjoyed the movie and this is just purely fanfiction i wrote based on the direction of the movie and where it could go if they keep it to the pattern and events of dc's Earth-3 universe which the story was based around. This story takes place after the movie and before a sequel.
