Gen X #1 - From Svalbard With Love
Post by Alkaline on Mar 5, 2007, 6:21pm

Generation X #1
$2.99

Generation X has barely settled Down Under, when they're whisked off to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. A sentinel disposal facility is overtaken by terrorists, and Excalibur assigns Gen X to do recon. Of course they don't follow orders…

The X-Jet is somewhere over the Arctic Circle. A few hours before, an alarm had roused the students, and without a word, Rachel and Kitty stowed the students on the jet and sealed themselves in the pilot's cabin.

Finally, Rachel appears in the doorway, strapping her suit up.

"We have a situation, and we've been tapped by X-Factor to keep an eye on it.

We're nearing Svalbard, Norway. It's cold, dark, and wet. Word on the newswire is that a mutant liberation group has overtaken a sentinel disposal facility.

Our job is to do some recon, and if possible, rescue the key staff in the facility.

Question?"

"Stow it, Knightress," Rachel huffs, then looks at the rest of group.

She nods curtly to Wildfire and replies, "We have no intel on any of the parties involved. Scandinavia isn't exactly known for it's powers. Cerebro confirms at least six mutants in the terrorist party, though."

She pulls on a jacket. "It's a sentinel disposal and storage facility, I'd imagine they aren't in deployable condition. Still, be on your guard."

"I see." Norway's cold bothers me, though I don't worry for myself - I should be able to stand it well enough, unless the cold is particularly biting. It's the others I worry for. My main question answered, I lay back in my seat and consider a few scenarios.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 5, 2007, 11:30pm

Kitty emerges from the cabin, and tosses a dossier to Marcus.

"DARPA's Special Project's Office had a few key personnel on site, nothing major…Special Project's Office alone should raise a big red exclamation point over our heads, though."

She turns to Rachel. "AI's bringing us down nearby. I'll stay on board and work the hacking magic."

Rachel looks at the group, and sighs. "…Alright."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Marcus "Stardust" Sun on Mar 5, 2007, 11:34pm

Marcus looks through the dossier quickly and passes it to Sara.

"So we have a bunch of no-name terrorists taking over a plant full useless Sentinel junk. Let's just kick their asses and go home."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Mar 5, 2007, 11:35pm

Joe gives Marcus a dirty look, then turns to Rachael. "Should we have Sara go in and get a look first? Or should we all stay together in a group?"


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Last Hero on Mar 5, 2007, 11:35pm

The Sentinels are a worry, too…I've already proven to be mostly ineffective against enemies of that type. Still, they're typically set to register mutants, so they should scan right over me - hopefully, it won't come to that, but being registered as a human might help.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 5, 2007, 11:37pm

The jet lands in a snowy, barren field. There's a massive military compound nearby, lighting up the overcast, snowy night.

Rachel and the rest of Gen X are standing on the loading ramp of the jet, cold air blowing in.

I want you all to move as a group until I say so. I'll get a better reading of who and what we've got inside once we're close, she patches in, opting not to yell over the howling wind.

Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 5, 2007, 11:42pm

There's a noise overhead in the sky, coming towards the group.

It's too snowy to see, but it sounds like jet engines.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Marcus "Stardust" Sun on Mar 5, 2007, 11:43pm

Marcus turns to the sound, on guard.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Last Hero on Mar 5, 2007, 11:44pm

"I'm going to get some distance." I back away from the group, staying just close enough to see - in case this is an attack, I need to already be at a distance in order to stay effective.


Re: Gen X #1 -

"Not necessarily hostile, guys. Just stay on your toes."

Polarity sets his field to max repel and hovers.

Sir Nathaniel draws his sword, and takes a battle stance.

Sara takes a postion near the middle of the group and pulls her goggles up, waiting for a clear view of what's coming before kicking in her speed.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Mar 5, 2007, 11:47pm

Joe crouches slightly, looking up and trying to figure out what flew overhead.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 5, 2007, 11:48pm

There's a now a shape visible on the horizon, two shapes in fact.

A pair of Mark II Sentinels are slowing circling the perimeter of the base.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Marcus "Stardust" Sun on Mar 5, 2007, 11:50pm

Sentinels… not good, not good at all.

"Shit. That ain't good. Dan - no fire, we don't need a beacon pointing them straight at us. Just stay low and together."

Anthony continues to follow Rachel.

Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Mar 5, 2007, 11:51pm

Do you think we can get close to them without them attacking us? Joe thinks at Rachael. He walks foreward slowly, staying toward the front of the group.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Sara "Hype" Lincoln on Mar 5, 2007, 11:52pm

Sara looks blankly at the Sentinels.

"How fast do you think they are?"


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Last Hero on Mar 5, 2007, 11:53pm

I decide to keep my distance from the group and see what the Sentinels do. If they attack, then getting more distance will be nescessary - I'm far too vulnerable here.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 5, 2007, 11:56pm

Rachel pauses, then addresses the group.

No sudden moves. Safe bet, whoever's behind this reactivated some of the stored models. I'm getting a clearer reading now…there's only 13 people inside, but I can't get a good grip on any of them

She crouches against the last grove of trees sheltering them from the storm and base spotlights.

Here's the plan. Kitty pulled the schematics… She taps something into her wrist computer, and pulls the group close.

The main hangar door there, Kitty can hack it if you get to it. Otherwise there's a service tunnel around the side…and a heating duct that might work as an entry point.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Mar 5, 2007, 11:57pm

Am I gonna be able to fit in that vent? Joe thinks at Rachael with some embarassment.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Ferrante on Mar 6, 2007, 12:00am

Probably not, Joe. Our best bet might be to have Sara take Kitty to the main entrance and have Kitty phase the two of them into a wall… and just let her stick her hand out and hack away.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Last Hero on Mar 6, 2007, 12:00am

"I'll take the heating duct." It sounds about my speed, anyway. No risk of burn.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 6, 2007, 12:01am

The Sentinels are doing another pass through, closing in on the group.

Rachel looks at Wildfire and tosses her a comm-unit. You're in charge. Get inside and see to the hostages, I'll find out about the Sentinels.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Del tha Funkee Homosapien on Mar 6, 2007, 12:01am

"I think we should split up. I'll take either the duct or the tunnel."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Last Hero on Mar 6, 2007, 12:02am

"Roger." I fasten the comm-unit, secure it. "Dan, Joe, accompany me to the duct. Everyone else, take the main entrance."


Re: Gen X #1 -

"Got it." Joe follows Wild, trying to get in front of her.

Marcus starts leading the way.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 6, 2007, 12:06am

«Can you guys adopt a color for Wildfire's Group and a color for the Others?»

Kitty patches in on Wild's comm-unit.

"Ok. Push Select to access the communications screen. A cycles forward, B cycles ba…sorry, nervous witty banter."

After Wild's silence she says, "Nintendo? No? Ok…I have intel on the possible terrorists."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Last Hero on Mar 6, 2007, 12:06am

I head off towards the service exit and the heating duct with Joe and hopefully Dan behind. "Anthony, you'll more than likely encounter the enemy from the main hanger - try to keep the fight localized. Dan, Joe and I will work on extracting the hostages while you direct their focus."


Re: Gen X #1 -

Kitty crackles in.

"Wildfire. Ok. You're dealing with a group called Sons of Niflheim. They're…well info is sparse, but they're a NATO equivalent of X-Factor that never got off the ground…I've got a roster here:

Skraeling…Mesmer…Huldar…Inque…Tangent…Skadi…but nothing more.

You'll want to hit the sub-basements. And sorry Marcus, I don't have their tech profile yet. Facility is pretty bear bones…motion sensors, lasers, trap doors."

Rachel patches in.

I'm going to need more time. Resistance is fairly light, at least here on the 2nd floor.

Sara nods towards Wild.

"I'm going to scout forward to draw them, but I'll keep the speed down just enough so I wont wipe out. Just someone needs to keep an eye on my back in case they move in for the attack."

Sara speeds up and takes off towards the Sentinels.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 6, 2007, 12:21am

The front gate is a massive metal door, but the doorway itself isn't well lit.

There are spotlights and three patrolling guards in the entry ramp, and a fourth guard is sleeping in a parked truck.

The entryway to the heating duct is protected by two security camera overlooking the storage room nearby.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Ferrante on Mar 6, 2007, 12:21am

The Blue Squad arrives at the door.

"Alright Kitty, we're here. What can you do to get us in? And can it be done in a hurry?"

"Guys, stay low and watch the spotlights, we'll wait for Kitty's word before we do anything."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Mar 6, 2007, 12:23am

Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Marcus "Stardust" Sun on Mar 6, 2007, 12:23am

"Oh, hell."

Marcus fires his particles, masses moving in different directions, forming into constructs. The particles were vibrating to create the illusion of body heat.

"Alright let's go."

Marcus starts moving faster towards the entrance.

"That good?"


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 6, 2007, 12:25am

"On it," Kitty whispers into the comm-unit. There's a mechanical grating, and the door slowly raises.

Beyond the door is a long hallway leading to a large hangar. The elevator to the sub-basements can be seen on the far, far, far wall.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Ferrante on Mar 6, 2007, 12:25am

"Hmph… okay, let's go."

Polarity tails Marcus, he's actually laying down flat on his stomach but repels himself in such a way that he hovers in the prone position, like a maglev train.


Re: Gen X #1 -

[Sorry for jumping the gun.

"Understood." I'd prefer better intel, but it can't be helped.

We stop as the cameras come into view, and I nod to Joe and Dan. "Dan, I want you to melt the cameras. Go for the lenses if you can - make it seem like they simply broke and malfunctioned."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Marcus "Stardust" Sun on Mar 6, 2007, 12:26am

"Alright I'll handle this."

Concentrating on the bogies and this job is tough, but he had to do this. He moved his particle into the guards ears. It took a couple of minutes, but he did it.

"I can make them sick and falling over anytime now."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Ferrante on Mar 6, 2007, 12:27am

"Fine."

The particles vibrated in all the guard's eardrums.

"Let's run in now."

Marcus turned on his comm, while running to the entrance.

"Sara's the door's open, we're going in."


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Alkaline on Mar 6, 2007, 12:28am

Marcus's guards collapse, out of sight of the spotlights.

Down the long hallway, the team notices rows of moving cameras…or they look like cameras, but have no lenses…

The heating duct slopes downwards, and snakes through the building. Finally it ends, with only a service ladder to drop down.


Re: Gen X #1 -

Joe stares around nervously, shuffling from foot to foot to try and keep warm.

Anthony runs in front of Marcus and puts his arm out.

"Whoa, whoa, cowboy."

He points at the lensless cameras.

"Has to be trip-lasers. Give me a second."

Anthony pulls out a cig from his back pocket and lights it, sticking it in his mouth, he puffs a few times and the resulting smoke should reveal if he's right.


Re: Gen X #1 -
Post by Marcus "Stardust" Sun on Mar 6, 2007, 12:31am

"What are those? Sentinel's?"

Marcus moves some particles down the hallway far away from them. Then the particles vibrate into a small ball of superheated plasma.

MEANWHILE, in the Storms of The Great North…

Hype has caught up to the Sentinels, who have locked onto her signature.

"Unidentified mutant detected. Initiating restraint protocol."

The two Sentinels bear down on Hype's location.

"All right. Dan with me, Joe by the service door. Keep in contact, report if you see anything suspicious, and stay out of the Sentinel's sight." I head into the heating duct and start to head down, bracing my feet and hands against the walls to slow my descent.

Polarity's smoke reveals roving trip-lasers; thankfully Marcus's plasma ball goes through unhindered. The heat from the plasma damages the circuitry, though, and the hallway is all clear.

Hype:

The 2nd sentinel tosses out another restraining coil, narrowly missing Hype.

Hype has run out of ground to run on, she's on the edge of a cliff, with a nasty drop into an icy fjord.

Polarity's Team:

The door slams shut, but thanks to Nathaniel's premonition, Gen X wasn't on the bad side.

Okay. Let's see what we know.

She's a shapeshifter. She can control a liquid like substance. It seems to respond well to fire, oddly enough, so perhaps it's like oil. But liquid is liquid; regardless of the substance, it will share a few traits. Assuming her body is made of the same stuff…well, there's only one way to be sure. It can't be helped.

"Force it is, then. Stun Gun." The mid-range weapon forms in my hands and I fire, the thread shooting out to our attackers body. It's not likely to do more than stun her, if that, but hopefully that's all we'll need.

Sentinels:

Joe's final outburst slams the second sentinel to the ground, and off the cliff.

He collapses in a snowdrift.

Polarity's Team:

The Swedish man slams against the wall from Polarity's blow.

I seriously question the ability of that little dragon to save Joe and Sara, but Kitty seems confident, and I hardly have time to argue. Dan still seems somewhat wiped from being attacked…it's a pain, but I have to progress. "Stay here and follow my lead once you're ready.

Wildfire:

Wildfire and Dan find themselves in a cold concrete hallway, ramping downwards. It ends in an underground warehouse, with tiny storage sheds stretching off into the darkness.

Lockheed:

Lockheed locates Joe and Sara, and Kitty re-routes the X-Jet to the fjord to load them in the med bay.

Polarity:

Barring annoying the deactivated sentinels, the only option is an elevator. There's a button on the console that lights up when the card key is near.


Re: Gen X #1 -

Polarity scatters across the ceiling to the elevator.

"Marcus, float in, I can obviously lure Nate along since he wants to chew me."

(I assume) as Polarity moves, Nate follows. He waits for Marcus and hits the button on the elevator.

Joe dimly notices Sara coming closer, and rolls over onto his back.

One eye is completely covered by frozen blood. The other eye is half-open, the pupil dilated. There's a huge, charred hole in the left side of his uniform, just below the ribcage. Rocks and chunks of ice are sticking out of his torso, which looks more like hamburger than anything. His left leg flaps limply. A small amount of clear fluid is collecting in his right ear.

Wildfire:

There's heavy breathing, more footsteps, and then dead silence. Somewhere, water drips.

Polarity:

The sentinels are deactivated, and don't react to the Demon's antics.

The X-Jet:

Kitty turns from the computer console and looks at Hype.

Polarity jumps down from the ceiling of the elevator and exits onto the new floor, he looks around and motions for Marcus to follow him. He takes note of the sentinel head Nate's currently residing in.

"Marcus, can you create a sort of platform and put us both on it? Kinda hover us across this place?"

Sara stands up and starts trying to stretch out. After what happened to Joe, she just wants to hit something.

"It'll take a few minutes."

After a while he created a platform, making sure he was replinishing the particles he was using, sturdy enough to float them through.

"I don't usually make large constructs. Waste of particles."

He hops on with Polarity and floats them both over.

Polarity:

Wildfire -

There's a 'pinging' sound, and several projectiles ricochet down the hallway.

Polarity -

The hall opens cold concrete hallway. There's a metal staircase leading down.

Marcus -

The air temperature in the room begins dropping, and there's a dry cracking sound above.

Knight -

The elevator shaft is cold. Marcus is near.

Wildfire:

There's more pinging, and suddenly a baton ricochets from the rafters and smacks Dan in the back of the head.

Marcus/Sir Nathaniel:

Nathaniel rolls into the room, it's frigid and slicked in ice. The ceiling is caving down.

Suddenly a blue woman erupts from the icy floor and rakes icicle talons against Sir Nathaniel's neck.

The ceiling crashes down on Marcus.

Wildfire:

Dan's blast lights up the rafters, to reveal a little girl crouched above. She screams, and there's a tremendous crash as something big slams through the wall, swatting Dan and Wildfire aside with massive metal whipes.

They are pinned down, and a heavily accented voice echoes in the darkness, as the little girl hops down and leers over Wildfire: "Well, X-Men, I do not think you have brought my Synthesizer. Killed my comrade, but no Synthesizer."

A massive boot presses on Wildfire's chest.

Wildfire:

Omega Red picks up Daniel and Wildfire with his tendrils, taking care to squeeze them tight.

"I have a use for you, yet." He turns to Tangent. "Come little one. We shall avenge your comrade."

But all that means is that we still have value to him; he either wants to use as hostages or he's planning to torture information out of us that we don't have. It sounded more like the latter.

Scene cut. Marcus's team has been captured/knocked out. They come to in a prison bunker. They are chained to individual tables, arms and legs locked down. Dan is with them.

Wildfire's table is upright, and Omega Red has a coil wrapped around her throat, slowly feeding his death aura into her, enough to hurt.

"…and I ask you again, where is the Synthesizer?"

Mesmer, Skadi, and Inque are looking at the prisoners, Tangent is crying over the mangled body of Skraeling, splayed out in the corner.

Omega Red sighs, and sinks his fist into Wildfire's stomach. His other hand outstretches a tendril, pulling Marcus's table towards him.

"And what of you? Skadi claims you are the most powerful of these X-people." He chokes Marcus with the tentacle.

Mesmer steps forward. "Are we going ahead with the plan, then?"

Omega Red smiles. "Yes. Inque."

Inque smirks, steps forward, and envelopes Mesmer in her liquidity. She begins to drown him, creeping into his lungs.

Skadi picks up Tangent, and heads to a computer console.

Everyone who attempts to break free, breaks free. The stress of the fall has shattered most of the restraints.

Hype and Nephy arrive in a control room. It's abandoned, but there's a crashed out window.

Through the window they see their teammates, threatened by a giant bi-pedal tank.

Wildfire's team:

The giant machine takes a step forward, and stumbles from Marcus's blast. It's shielding holds however, and it fires a hail of plasma bursts in retaliation.

Sara looks down from the window and is struck by fear. Another giant robot, her face begins to hurt again just thinking about it. But she's not going to hide.

Marcus's shield holds, but not by much.

Polarity's attempt does nothing, and an arc of electricity spikes up, enveloping him.

The ceiling above begins to open, and cold air flows down. The blizzard is still raging outside.

Then, the Sentinels arrive; four units drop onto the platform, and the tank lays suppressive fire on Gen X.

Polarity quickly bounces up and leaps at one of the smaller sentinels and repels off of it, and into the next, he repeats this into the huge one and finally the tank, he keeps doing this trying to buy time and room for his team.

The platform begins to raise, and one of the Sentinel's falls off, plummeting below.

The platform is rising slowly, soon it will reach the broken window leading to the console room, then it will rise into the open air.

Something in the giant tank whirs and clicks. It sounds like a weapon being loaded.

Marcus sat down sighing before realizing something.

"Sara. How's Joe doing?"

Sara turns to Marcus, a tear visable from her uncovered eye.

"When I left to come back….he didn't look too good….those things did a real number on him, I got off easy…I shouldn't have."

A bold question, true believers!

And one that will be answered in our next exciting issue!

Sara sees Nephy and walks over to her, but rather then trying to pick her up, Sara just falls to her knees behind Nephy and hugs her.

"He saved my life."

Update for the Team:

You're in London now. Use the Global Board.

Black Air has dropped you in a "special" hotel, you have free reign to explore the city, but they'll know if you leave. And kill you for it. Black Air doesn't screw around.

Rachel and Joe are hospitalized.

More to come later.
