Bruce, Lex, and Harry at ExcelsiorShadows and Stone:  The World of Excelsior Prep
by Lacey McBain
(Graphic by mkitty_03)

    In this universe, Bruce Wayne, Lex Luthor, and Harry Osborn are all classmates at Excelsior Prep, an exclusive all-boys boarding school in New England.  The school accepts boys from Grade 5 to Grade 12, inclusive.  Lex and Bruce start together in Grade 5, around the age of 9, and graduate together eight years later.  Harry joins them in Grade 9, but leaves during his senior year to attend high school back in New York with his friend Peter Parker.  In general, this universe follows Smallville as a baseline for time, so the meteor shower happened in 1989.  Lex had just started attending school there that fall.  Lex's mother dies in 1993 when he is 13 and in Grade 8.
    Bruce, Lex, and Harry are all roughly the same age within a year.  Clark Kent is roughly 5 years younger than Lex.  Dick Grayson (Robin) is about 8 years younger than Bruce.  Peter is about 2 years younger than Harry (accelerated student).
    Toby (who appears in SV "Stray") is the doctor at the school.  Principal Reynolds (who appears in SV "Redux") is the headmaster at Excelsior.
