He looks at everyone and acknowledges them with a BadAss Grunt (TM).

"You're here because I don't want the rest of the compound hearing about what you're gonna be doing today. Unless you've all had your heads buried in the sand, and I don't doubt that, you'll all know about how there were a few mutants that helped keep other mutants down while Genosha was a slave state.

"I don't know or care what you think of these trait- *Ahem…* 'Political Something-or-others* I'm supposed to call them… Anyway, no matter what it is you think about them, we gotta go save the life of somebody who's begging for our help. Says he was an enforcer, back in the bad old days."

Wolverine catches the can without looking at it, pops it open with a claw, and is drinking it in less than a second.

"Stuff's warm… Ah well. Don't know much about this traitor. He called about an hour ago, said he needed a hand staying alive. You guys are gonna go to where the call came from, and figure out if he's worth giving asylum to."

"You leave soon as you get yourselves together and get debriefed. Which is now."

Wolverine grabs the keys to the compound's Ford Windstar minivan, and tosses them to Nate.

"What, the big bad tracker's afraid to face traffic?" He asks good-naturedly. "You're going downtown, it's pretty close."

"Usually just run it. Keeps the heart in shape for those us who can't afford healing factors."

Dom's head is blown off by a random sniper, killing him on-

Oh, I mean… Nothing bad happens! Nothing bad at all!

It takes the team a few minutes to get to this particular part of the Downtown area. Even after all the months of repairs, this area is still damaged from the Sentinel attack. Even at full capacity, it takes a long time for a city to repair itself after something like that. You can see that a lot of this part of the skyline is conspicuously empty, and Nate, with his finely tuned senses, can catch the faintest scent of burned organic matter.

When they approach the building, the lobby attendant gawks at them warily. "Wheres do youse thinks youse goings?"

Re: Gen M #12: Paradise Never Found
Post by noodles on Feb 7, 2008, 11:15pm

«In my mind, I already had you guys get out of the van and start walking into the lobby.»

The needles bounce off Nephy's blood hands, which are just transparent enough to make Dan's guns look MUCH more intimidating through them, which allows Wreck to peacefully melt the gun, as Sal stands there with his knees rattling. He's then nailed by Dom, and lands in his comfortable, ratty old chair.

He looks more afraid than angry, or filled with ill intent. "I'm not lettings more of youse in my buildings!"

He's clearly in no place to stop you, though.

Joe is too late, though he does find some hard candy on the desk to his side.

Sal opens up his desk drawer and waves it around near Khan's arm. The pieces of buckshot dissipate into their component molecules and are attracted to the pizza cutter. Though to anyone who can't see microscopically, it looks like the buckshot just teleports out of his arm with his mutant power.

*Ding!*

The elevator smells like feet, and is inconveniently small. As everyone piles in, it feels like they're being crammed into a foot locker.

After a minute or two, the doors finally open and the team comes spilling out. What is supposed to be Brigg's door is seemingly smashed into pieces and is littering the floor. That's all you can see from your place outside the apartment.

Dom looks up and down the hall for signs of attackers.

Joe notices that the phone is off the hook, a busy signal shrilly permeating the otherwise silence of the apartment. Next to the phone is a scrap of paper with the Lensherr academy's phone number scribbled on it.

Furniture is knocked over and a couple lamps are busted, as if a small wrecking crew has been through here.

Though the most startling thing about it is what Dom notices: that there are purple footsteps leading to the stairwell up to the roof…


Re: Gen M #12: Paradise Never Found
Post by hellfireknight on Feb 7, 2008, 11:33pm

Khan follows the footsteps, and carefully checks for traps around the stairway door.

Post by skitch on Feb 7, 2008, 11:34pm

Dom says, "Guys, we've got footsteps going to the roof. I'm following!" Dom rushes up the stairs.

Wreck just teleports straight up to the roof. Worst that can happen is he lands right on Briggs and kills him. Of course, this occurs to him right after he jumps.

As the mutants reach the door opening to the roof, they hear what sounds like machine gun fire.

Then an elephant falls on its behind, right in front of the door. Not blocking it, but close enough to be very, very confusing.

The elephant crushes Wreck.

Post by cheshire on Feb 7, 2008, 11:37pm

Joe, in his haste, slams directly into the elephant.

Khan heads back to the elevator, and climbs up the service hatch to see if he can access to the maitanence hatch on the roof.

Nadia sees any number of useful objects:

-A lamp shaped like a woman's leg
-A fire extinguisher
-A vase
-A bass guitar, with no amp
-An expensive looking tripod, with no camera attached.

Re: Gen M #12: Paradise Never Found
Post by noodles on Feb 7, 2008, 11:44pm

The elephant turns its head around and we see one massive, bloodshot eye look through the doorway, Jurassic Park style. It angrily eyes Nephy, as if it has something in mind…

But the sound of a gunshot gets it up on its feet, as it charges away from the door.

As Khan gets through the vents, he pops out on the other side of the roof. He is placed in a spot where he can see the elephant's face as it charges (He's far enough away that he's not in immediate danger). He sees what it's charging for:

A group of three men, each of them wearing different primary colors. One dressed in Yellow, one in Red, one in Green. Each of them is holding an ornate dagger.

A man that looks something like a man-sized hedgehog.

A purple skinned guy. All the ground within a few feet of him is completely purple, in a six foot radius. The purple footsteps lead to him, and his power is; surprise, to turn stuff purple. He's holding a board with a nail in it. The board and nail are purple.

The rest of the team also see it them, after the elephant moves out of the way.

"Purple Man?"

Post by noodles on Feb 7, 2008, 11:48pm

At the sound of the name Briggs, the elephant turns around and looks at the gang again, narrowly avoiding getting hit in the eye with the Purple Man's board/nail combo. The elephant lets out an almost human "Huh?" Then begins charging the team. It puts Wreck out of his disgusting misery.


Re: Gen M #12: Paradise Never Found

Man… that elephant scared me for a second there….

And then these guys showed up.

"… Hello."

Post by noodles on Feb 7, 2008, 11:49pm

The hedgehog man begins sniffing around, as if he's discovered truffles.

"Hey guys! I smell… *Sniffsniffsniffsniffsniff* …Another! The monster must have called his traitor friends!"

Hedgehog man sniffs around Khan's general location, getting closer…

Wreck sits up, dusting himself off.

Khan waits for the hedgehog to get near, and then tries to round house kick it in the nose.

Quote:"Oh…. please don't tell me.

Guys, protect the Elephant."

The elephant hears this (His ears are enormous), and seems to immediately calm down. It stops running, and transforms back into a human form.

"I didn't know you guys were here to help… I thought you were with those guys. Are you from Magneto? Man, you guys are late!"

As the hedgehog mutant is taken by surprise and clobbered in the nose, it growls. The Primary Colored Men charge at Khan with their daggers, all shouting in unison "We'll avenge your death, sister!"

Grumbling something about why he's going to all of this trouble for a Magistrate elephant, Wreck goes to tackle whichever of the color guys is closest.

Dan pulls his scythe off of his back and extends the shaft. He runs at one of the Primary Colored Folk and swings away at his head.

Briggs shakes his head. "They were gonna kill me! I'm not letting them get away with that!"

As Purple Guy With a Board With A Nail In It swings his Board With a Nail in it at Briggs, he takes the form of a boa constrictor, and wraps around Purple Man. He dangles the man precariously over the edge of the building.

Red Man gets nailed by Dom's blast, and sent flying back. As he was taken by surprise, he conks his head against the edge of the building. He'll be alright, he's just unconscious. Dom can see him breathing.

"This scumbag helped enslave our sister!" Blue shouts, as his stab is deflected. "Yeah!" Yellow chimes in, also deflected. They were clearly not trained in the use of these weapons.


Re: Gen M #12: Paradise Never Found

Wreck manages to tackle Color Guy Blue, just as Incendiary slices off a good portion of Yellow's hair. The shock sends Yellow to the ground, defenseless.

"Well, Elephant Man? Care to explain yourself?"

Briggs: "I did what I had to do to survive! You don't know what it's like, I was all alone!"

He looks down, not really all that convinced he wants to drop this poor bastard to his death.

"I didn't really hurt anybody… Not on my own… I didn't kill anybody! I just… Put the collars on them. And put them in prisons…"


Re: Gen M #12: Paradise Never Found

"No." Nadia says, approaching Briggs and Purple Guy, with more caution than her stern voice would suggest. "You committed monstrosities. They tried to kill you. You don't have any more right to live than he does from where I'm standing. Don't do it."

Briggs pulls a confused mutant up from the edge of the building, just as Wreck gives Color Man a bloody nose. "WHAT THE FUCK?"

As the two sit on the side of the building, our elephant man (Now a human looking man) looks at the person he hurt. "I didn't mean to hurt anybody, I was just… I dunno, scared, I guess…." Though the man makes no attempt to dissuage his guilt, he does seem far less angry than before.

Hedgehog man is sniffling away some tears.

Quote:"No." Nadia says, approaching Briggs and Purple Guy, with more caution than her stern voice would suggest. "You committed monstrosities. They tried to kill you. You don't have any more right to live than he does from where I'm standing. Don't do it."

Briggs stands up and faces our group. "I wanted to come to work for Magneto so I could try to fix what I'd done…"

Dom considers blasting Briggs off the side of the roof and blaming it on a power slip. But…she would have hated that. And Alice would probably give him an earful too… He sighed and sat down on the edge of the roof.
