New Mutants 108 - Muties Take Kentucky
Post by Michael "Chi" Placio on Nov 20, 2006, 10:37am

Rogue has gathered the team together, "We haven't heard back from Sam in a few hours. We are headed out to Kentucky to check on him and his family. Get your gear together, the Black Bird leaves at Noon."

That is Noon EST. BTW, if you are not here, don't worry about it. When you do get here, just post as if your character had been there all along. It is less disruptive than trying to figure out who's teleporting in, etc. It also makes it easier for me to just act as if the entire team is someplace.

As much as I want to help Sam out, I can't.

"I'm sorry Rogue. There are a certain number of things I still have to do, and if I take this field mission, I won't be able to do them. But you guys have fun in the Bluegrass State."

Rogue sighes at Wreck, "Be serious for once if your life." Rogue obviously hasn't gotten over her experiences with Wreck's powers in the Danger Room.

"The Upstarts are looking to take out Sam's brother and sister. This stupid competition has taken way too many lives."

"Weren't some of the New Warriors on that list we found?" questioned Dillan as Rogue finished speaking. "We should probably contact them instead of sitting on this info."

Post by Michael "Chi" Placio on Nov 20, 2006, 11:08am

Rogue nods, "Already taken care of Dil. When we got from the last mission, I called X-Force and had the Avengers get ahold of the New Warriors."

"So, do we have any idea why Sam may not have contacted us? Or are we just going with the worst case scenario? Of course, given our team history, this probably is the worst case scenario."

Dillan grinned as Rogue informed him that they had already gotten in touch with The New Warriors.

YES! TEAM-UP…WITH FIRESTAR!

Rogue looks at Lex, "Sam rushed out of her so fast he didn't take his communicator with him. We tried calling the house, but there was no answer. We don't know anything for sure, but we'd rather be safe. And like you said, with our track record, it is better to plan for the worse."

Nevermore is the one who feels out of the loop this time. Reading mission logs didn't really give him a good sense of what exactly is after them, and he hasn't really made friends with anybody on the team yet, but he tries to act nonchalant about it. "So…how long does it take the Blackbird to get to Kentucky?"

"Real fast." Been a while since I really had the chance to push the Blackbird on a trip, looking forward to the rush. Mind's all over the place lately… "Hard to put a number on it, but it won't take long."

Pester was actually ready to go at around 10, but had to reassure himself that this jet of theirs wouldn't suddenly explode, leaving behind a trail of smoke, flame, and disembodied freak DNA strewn about. He's never actually been on a plane before. He sits down quietly and awaits takeoff.

«I'm gonna be in class most of the next few hours, so I'll be posting intermittently.»

As promised, the blackbird takes off towards Kentucky. The New Mutants are gathered in their seats, chatting, playing portable video game systems, or whatever they normally do to not go nuts during traveling. The trip is expected to take around half an hour. About five minutes into the flight, Jubilee suddenly bursts from the back of the plane and sits down in front of Heatwave, "We need to talk!"


Re: New Mutants 108 - Muties Take Kentucky
Post by Last Hero on Nov 20, 2006, 1:07pm

And the day was starting to look like it might go all right, too. "Jube, girl, what're you doing here?" Knew she used to hang out with the guys before I came on, but this drama's a little new to me.

Post by Michael "Chi" Placio on Nov 20, 2006, 1:16pm

Without turning away from Lex, Jubes releases a small burst of energy in Wreck's face, knocking him to the ground. The blast was a lot more powerful than anything she's shown in the past. She is practically glaring holes in Lex, energy crackling from her hands, "You idiot. Do you have any idea what you did to me??"


Re: New Mutants 108 - Muties Take Kentucky

"What are you talking about?"


Re: New Mutants 108 - Muties Take Kentucky

Jubes' voice gets very, very low all of a sudden, "You really don't remember any of it. Do you?"

Post by Marisol "Solidity" Morales on Nov 20, 2006, 1:21pm

«I bet Protoman just won't be able to just say HE WAS MIND-CONTROLLED.»

Marisol rolled her eyes imperceptively. She kept her gaze fixed at the passing clouds and tried to ignore to argument.

Post by Protoman on Nov 20, 2006, 1:22pm

"Apparently not, is this about something that happened while Exodus was in my head?" Lex asks, clearly becoming worried.


Re: New Mutants 108 - Muties Take Kentucky
Post by Last Hero on Nov 20, 2006, 1:22pm

"Hey!" Don't know what's going on, don't know why she's blasted Wreck - being fair, though, that's something I've wanted to do sometimes, so I can't talk- but I do know that Jubilee's letting loose with explosions when we're in the damn jet, 3,000 feet up. "You lost your damn mind?" I unbuckle and stand up, ready to get a little physical if I have to. Don't want to mess her up, but if she blows a hole in the jet, and I'm the only one here who can really fly…


Re: New Mutants 108 - Muties Take Kentucky
Post by Michael "Chi" Placio on Nov 20, 2006, 1:23pm

«For our newest members, some background. After a fight with Exodus and the Acolytes, Lex had a brief relationship with Jubilee…unfortunately, this whole thing was manipulated by mental suggestions left by Exodus, and when Stryker managed to fix Lex's head, Lex lost his memories of this entire time. Jubes thought this was all just a prank by the New Mutants. She has a habit of misinterpreting events in our history…»

From his position on the ground, Wreck chuckles.

Post by Michael "Chi" Placio on Nov 20, 2006, 1:25pm

«and Cannonball isn't even here But, Marisol could probably float to the ground…Osmosis too. The rest of them are trashed.»

Jubilee looks at Rogue, all the rage is drained out of her, leaving some emptiness and some pain, "Sorry. It's just…I thought…." Jubes shakes her head, her glasses slipping down to block her eyes. Jubes sighes and sits down hard on the chair behind her, oblivious to the fact that she plopped down right on top of Marisol.

«This board hates Jubes, right? Why is that?»

Sephula sat in the corner, staring at his arm. Still confused and dazed from the first true psychic assault he had ever endured, he wasn't sure what he was seeing. He saw an answer. He saw a solution. He saw a chance for life for many.

«the board doesn't hate Jubes…especially not me, I am a fan of the character, which is why I use her all the time. The NM has had some issues with Jubes, mostly on her part when things have happened against her that she took personally. It is a running gag more than any real hatred.»

Jubes sighes, looking around. "Damn. I came here ready to kill you. Uhm, no offense to the rest of you." Jubes tries to put on a smile, but she is in pain here, "But, you have no idea…"

She stands up, looking back at Marisol with a shocked expression, "Yikes! Sorry about that!" Jubes actually smiles at that and shakes her head again.

"We'd have some ideas if you'd just say it already. There will be fight when we get to Kentucky (since our lucky sucks) and we don't need drama being spouted off in the heat of battle. Talk or get off the Blackbird."

I'm still a bit confused with everything that's going on, and Wreck's comment doesn't help. "Damned?" I really got to start reading those logs…

Lex sits in silence waiting to see if Jubilee is going to say anything to enlighten him as to what's going on.


Re: New Mutants 108 - Muties Take Kentucky
Post by Michael "Chi" Placio on Nov 20, 2006, 1:39pm

Jubilee speaks softly again, "After you guys fought the Acolytes, you went to a diner with a few of the X-Men. Afterwards, I kissed you. And you kissed me right back. Badly, I must add." Jubes eyes light up slightly when she is telling this story. "We were together for a few weeks. And when you guys came back from Los Angeles, you acted like you had no clue what was going on with us…I just thought this was all a big joke to you. To all of you."

Jubilee looks embarrassed, "But, I figured screw that. I was not going to let you all ruin my life. I wasn't going to make a scene, you just weren't worth my time. But, then, things changed…"

Marisol's whispering, but I hear her. "Jubilee's got the experience, I just worry about her head being in it." I turn Jubilee's way, glancing over the seat. "Might be best for you to stay in the jet, if you ain't up to it."

Marisol turned her gaze on Wreck.

"Just because SOME people want to be dead, doesn't mean everyone else should," she said carelessly.

She wanted to mention babies, but that would be more than tactless.

Hearing a reference to the Legacy Virus, Sephula looked up, his eyes darting around, trying to ascertain who was talking about it. Once he realised that the statement was fleeting, he realised that he had no idea what everyone was talking - he had been in his own world since he got on the Blackbird. Returning to watching his hand with vivid interest, he resumed working on his problem. His future. His elucidation.

Solo's got that weird helmet thingy—eye contact is a no-no. Deadpool's crazy to the point where any hallucinations wouldn't phase him too much, but it's still worth a try. Perhaps an unorthodox approach?

Nevermore tries to manuver around to where he can make eye contact with Deadpool, and waves. "Heard a lot about you. Hey, do you know what's big, scary, and crawling all over you?" He then tries to make a tacticle/olifactory illusion, provided he can make eye contact—something creepy and distracting more than terrifying. Hopefully Deadpool's own insanity will make this interesting, since the illusion will come out of his subconscious and all.

“So… healing factor. Basically, cancer. Oh, wait, you had that, didn’t you? And you went to Weapon X to get help for it, right? Except that they fucked with you. Turned the cancer onto your whole body, combining it to a healing factor to keep it from killing you. Instead, they used its rapid mitosis factor to make you that much easier to manipulate, and they used it to make YOU into a weapon. And you couldn’t do anything about it, could you? Because you were too pathetic, weak and feeble. Stupid man, trying to save his worthless life, ended up becoming less than a man.”

Wreck opens fire on Deadpool and Solo. Deadpool takes a chest full of shots, and starts shooting back at Wreck. He seems fascinated that Wreck takes shots as well as he does, "Hey, ugly!! We really need to swap stories after I am done killing you!!"

Marisol spreads herself around the two of them, when Solo grabs Deadpool and the two of them teleport out of the way. Marisol finds herself wrapping herself around a grenade which explodes inside of her grasp.

Nevermore needs to get closer to get eye contact to use his powers, but with Deadpool and Solo shooting at them, that probably isn't a great idea.

Sephula takes a shot to the shoulder from Deadpool. "Look at this guy!! The human target! What's your power? Bleeding all over yourself?" Again, running at people shooting at you is not always a great idea.

Solo teleports outside of Reflex's whirlwind. He's standing outside the circle, and after a few laps, he trips Reflex.

Pester's idea seems to have some merit. Deadpool whips out his second gun and aims it at Solo, "What did you say, Paladin???" Solo looks at Deadpool, confused.

A spot of red light appears on Heatwave's forehead. He looks up to see a sniper taking aim from on top of the barn.

A shot blazes out from the rifle hitting Rogue in the shoulder. The projectile seems to be spinning in an odd pattern. Rogue feels it burrowing into even her hardened skin. She tries to grab it, but it's too late. Rogue feels her powers flicker out for a second, and she almost drops from the sky.

The sniper turns his attention back to Heatwave.

Nevermore grits his teeth. His powers aren't very good. Hopefully he can take advantage of Wreck's…strange course of action in order to get close enough to Deadpool. Using his much less vulnerable teammate as a shield of sorts, he manuvers himself closer to the merc, and tries to make eye contact. No time for humor here. He projects the most terrifying, run-like-a-baby-or-die image that his powers can muster, a visual/aural/tactile illusion.

Yeah, I would imagine that would hurt, Curt. But you do absorb kinetic energy, so I am sure you can slow your fall to keep yourself from being killed. Still probably didn't feel great.

Deadpool turns away from Wreck and fires a shot just past Solo's head. Solo teleports out of the way just in time.

Thankfully, she could never really be "blown apart". Her body would always somehow stay in one piece, one way or another. But it HURT. A large sections of her hands had been damaged, especially by the heat. She was lying on her knees on the ground, gathering her breath.

If she made her hands go away, the pain would disappear as well. He pulled her precarious ligaments into herself. The immediate feeling was gone, but there was still a numbness somewhere within her.

She dragged herself back to her feet. She felt exhausted, though she couldn't see why.

She darted off towards Deadpool, reading long and sharp claws. Slash.

Sephula reaches out, deep into Deadpool's screaming cells, feeling the agony that each and every of them exudes, but trying to weather it for now via his strength of will. Apath then tried to turn the cancer cells out into a bubbling mass, to make them reproduce more uncontrollably than ever before.

Nevermore is able to get close to Deadpool using this method. Deadpool is already kind of freaking out thanks to Pester's tricks. Nevermore pushes Deadpool over the edge completely. Deadpool throws several explosive devices at Solo, and in multiple other directions causing the New Mutants to scatter for cover.

Apath causes Deadpool intense pain, which gets nasty as his body's enhanced healing starts to kick in at the same time. Deadpool drops to his knees. "THIS REALLY SUCKS!!!"

Solo reappears just in time to find himself held in place by Reflex's field. Solo is glaring at Reflex, his eyes full of anger, "You crazy bastards…"

Reflex is pummeling Solo. Solo whispers something. Reflex leans in to hear what he is saying. It sounds an awful lot like, "Gotcha…"

Marisol rakes her claws across Deadpool's body, and a nasty blood fluid runs down his chest.

At that moment, both Deadpool and Solo explode into a shrapnel of those strange darts that hit Rogue earlier. Were they Robots? LMD's? Human bombs? Who can say for sure? Either way, they were trouble.

Reflex and Solidity are hit with the darts. Solidity tries to shapeshift around the dart, but it clings to her body. Immediately, she feels herself having trouble keeping her shape. Something about these darts completely disrupts people's powers. Reflex feels his speed drop to nothing, and a moment later he feels like his chest is going to explode as his heart starts racing faster than he has ever felt.

More FoH members seem to be arriving, surrounding the New Mutants, all aiming those nasty rifles. Little red dots of light appear all over the NM's bodies.

Marisol feels intense pain, but her body pulls back from the energy, allowing him to reach in and pull out the projectile. The projectile immediately starts to react to his body.

He pulls it out and tosses it at Apath's feet, "Sepula? Can you do the honors?"

Post by Damien Lupe on Nov 21, 2006, 2:26pm

"Gladly."

Picking up the projectile, he held it in front of his faced, and it momentarily twisted with repulsion. He closed his palm on it. Opening it again, the projectile was completely crushed.

Don't think of the pain… Don't lose concentration…

She returned her body to it's normal state, all nice and solid. It was important not to let her form got out of hand… She considered thanking Cannonball, but decided just to walk to the others and try to catch up.

Dillan watched as Wreck melted the gun with his mutant power. He made it look so easy, Dil though to himself. Maybe…

Nothing. Despite his best efforts the gun remained a glob of paste on the ground. Maybe it was for the best he couldn't control his powers, he mused. Would he quite possibly become that madman that Cable and Addison described? A time-traveling savior like Cable was?

He extends his arms, gesturing.

"Look at us! I can kill stuff, but I frigging lose my mind in the process. Marisol over there just finished being a blob, on top of her obvious other problems.

Sam grabs two pieces of the house and turns it into a cross, "BE GONE WITH YOU EVIL ONE! BE GONE!!!!"

Dil blinks, realizing that he had imagined that whole thing. Thank god.

«couldn't resist…I should, but I don't »

Sam nods thoughtfully afterwards, "That's just one possible future. For the longest time, I thought that Cable was a future me, and I was doomed to become a crotchety nut job with a love of guns. We make our own futures, Dil. The best advice I can give you is just do the best you can to make the choices that let you sleep better at night.
