New Mutants West #4 - I Fought the Law
Post by Protoman on May 24, 2007, 6:48pm

New Mutants West #4
"I fought the law (and the law won)"
99 CENTS!

After the horrible attempt at covering up Murder last weeks issue, the New Mutants west get a taste of Coastal law. Hint: Droughts will not be involved (Much…)

And a special low price! To make up for the fact we're letting a no-name intern Write it!

Writer: No-Name Intern (Guest Writer)
Penciler: He does both. Let's hope he's not secretly Liefield.

Friday Night, probably around 11 EST.

[Hard to say for me. We've got a three day weekend with Memorial Day…but, again, people are lazy-asses and will probably skip today. Now, yesterday we had similar problems, but it forced everyone to work they're ass off, and we got out at 11:00 clean - pretty good for us. I wouldn't hold my breath on that today. Hopefully, the incentive to get the hell out of that place will push everyone.]

The world is peaceful for the New Mutants West. It's been entire days since the last mission, and team beatings aside, everyone is having a good time. Well, some might still complain, but it's been a nice time.

All good things though.

And this good thing ends with a battering ram Smashing against the main door.

Another smash, though the door seems to be holding. Perhaps this is why they decide to try a new strategy.

"Come out with your hands up! This is the California Police department! If you do not come out peacefully, we will break the door down!"

To emphasis the point, the battering ram echos again.

In any case, it has to be dealt with. "I'll get it." I walk over to the door and open it.

Abby is rewarded with a gaggle of Pistols aimed at her. I think they might be a bit worried with the idea of bringing in super powered mutants.

"You're under arrest for the charge of Murder. You have the right… Blah blah blah."

A large burly man tries to grab Abby and cuff her.


Re: New Mutants West #4 - I Fought the Law
Post by Dreadnought on May 25, 2007, 11:48pm

Tom jumps up and transforms immediately. He stands behind Abby, about 8 feet tall and well over 500lbs. "Touch her and you all die."

"Okay, see, first off you're supposed to tell me who I supposedly murdered and read me my Miranda Rights. I watch Cops, I know how it works. Second," I give the cuffs a tug. "I didn't kill anybody. I bet you don't even know my name."

Post by Nick on May 25, 2007, 11:53pm

Out cop friends immediately open fire on Tom… Or try to anyway. Most of the guns are apparently more cool-headed then their owners, and keep the peace. The burly man seems non-plussed though.

"Yes, Well you'll have to forgive us, we're rather short of information at this time as well. But the higher-up have approved everything, so you'll get to address your questions to them."

He walks in.

"Come quietly, or we will take you by force."

"Listen kid, I've been on the force for thirty years. I'm sure you think you can take on the world looking like that, but I'd recommend not picking fights you can't win. It's just not good for lifetime expectancy."

He looks down at Abby.

"Murder, like I said. We've got dozens of wittinesses testifying they saw you kill another mutie in an alleyway near the beach."

Back to the group.

"I don't think you understand. You are ALL under arrest. Come quietly or we can do this the hard way."

A skinny police officer makes his way toward Sadie, seeing she's not really resisting, and starts reading Miranda rights. Our burly cop is still speaking.

"We have several Eye-witness reports telling us YOU people killed him. I think you understand we have to take you downtown for that."

Bryan looks around the others, waiting to follow their lead. Though, anytime an officer passes by him, he focuses, and makes the bullets in the gun they have so fragile it'll break before penetrating anyones skin.

If they didn't get shot at, he'd tell them the bullets were no good. If they did…well, a few shots weren't going to do anything.

"I can personally vouch that I was re-coding the way Prestige Classes and Outsider Races were perceived for my Neverwinter Nights server. I have dated webcam shots to prove it," Sadie argues, but she's still submitting herself to the police.

She gives Tom a "Will you back me up?" look, but because of her glasses and hair falling down, it looks more like they're eye-fucking each other.

As everyone starts going along quietly, the burly cop (Aparantly he thinks he's the leader) Walks up to Tom.

"Power down."

Post by Armando "Army" Rosewell on May 26, 2007, 12:12am

"Wow, Sadie…I know it's a tense situation, but it's really not the time." I glance between Tank and Sadie, snickering a bit. Whoa, mental images. Kind of like them. Some of them. "Anyway, I don't think you were around for it, but it's pretty spot-on. Long story short, there was a suicidal mutant who committed suicide. And we were there. And some people saw it. And…here we are."


Re: New Mutants West #4 - I Fought the Law
Post by Dreadnought on May 26, 2007, 12:13am

Sadie looks from Tom to the gun, and back, then breaks free of the officer reading her the Mirandas, and shoulders her way towards Tom, jumping between them.

"Are you that dumb? Look at him." I give Tank a tap. "You shoot him, it'll probably just ricochet. Just stuff him in the car and take us in the paddy-wagon or whatever and let's get this crap over. You know we'd kick all your asses if you wanted to."

Post by Nick on May 26, 2007, 12:21am

He fires, but a bullet doesn't come out. Someone did their homework, and knows a bullet might not work very well here.

A blue steam of energy emerges from the nozzle, striking Sadie straight on. She limitedly collapses to the ground.

"Well, that was a waste."

He levels the gun toward Tom again.

"Every shot of this costs a few hundred bucks. Please don't get my men's paychecks cut that much."

I sigh as Sadie goes down. "You complete dumbass. You've done it now."

I try to help Sadie up - after all, if what I think is about to happen does happen, she won't want to be in the way.


Re: New Mutants West #4 - I Fought the Law
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on May 26, 2007, 12:24am

Bryan reaches out to the gun, and tries to weaken a single part of it, the trigger, so that it snaps off when he pulls it, leaving him with a gun that can't fire. Bryan steps closer, to be sure he can be in range to do it.


Re: New Mutants West #4 - I Fought the Law
Post by Nick on May 26, 2007, 12:26am

He fires, only to have the gun crumple in his hands.

"Oh Shi-"

Before he could complain about the four digit figure the gun costs, Tom boots him out the window. That's a good way to end a conversation. Abby, Sadie and Paige are draged toward the exit, as the remaining gaurds pile on Tom and Bryan, guns useless at this point.

'Oh crap.' Bryan tries to fend off the police that outnumber him. But he's only one man. Maybe Tom would have better luck, he thought, continuing to resist.

My eye twitches ever so slightly. No fucking way. That didn't happen. It didn't. Clearly I'm on drugs that I don't know about, because I'm hallucinating. That. Didn't. Happen.

Motherfuck the police.

I don't bother kicking and screaming - though I could probably get farther with it than Abby - but I do try telling their vehicles to drive away. You know. Without us.

Tom starts picking up officers and throwing them through the mansion walls, and windows. He's aiming for the ocean a few miles away. He begins wading through the sea of guys doing their jobs, and swings wildly. He's not trying to kill anybody, but knocking them unconscious would be nice.


Re: New Mutants West #4 - I Fought the Law
Post by Nick on May 26, 2007, 12:32am

Bryan is quickly shoved to the ground, and after a few arkward kicks that Abby may have to exsplain to outraged wives, they figure out to handle her at arm's reach. Kicking and screaming, the New mutants are slowly dragged outside….

To cars driving off without them.

Well that's a bitch.

A motorcycle stops in front of the Mutants, the rider remaining seated. He's obviously a cop, badge and everything, but that's all that looks normal about him.

The cycle is a real Hog. I mean the kind they make on American Chopper, that the Harley Davidson would be drooling over. A cigar in his mouth, with a cowboy hat and poncho completing the look. He continues to sit patiently.

Abby spots an assortment of cars, all with keys in the ignition. Mimic prepared quite a few getaway vans.

Tom makes his way toward the man… But gets shot before.

Like before, no bullets come out, but this time there's a bit of a more important change.

Tom flicks him. With a normal finger. The mystery man looks annoyed. The bike kicks up and swerves behind the van, in a single movement.

"Getting pissed off now. Paige, take the wheel, I'll be right." I pop out of the van and dash towards one of the unconscious cops, ripping the gun out of his holder. Hate to do it to such a sweet ride, but…no choice. I focus, put all my power into, anticipate his movement and fire two shots, one for each wheel on the bike.

Post by Nick on May 26, 2007, 1:14am

"Shit…."

The bike's wheels are shot, as our marshal jumps off it and runs toward Abby, obviously about to tackle her to the ground.

The van's windshield bursts as real bullets hit in and impact through the ceiling of the car. Luckily, nobody hot hit. The shooter is sitting right in front of them, a red haired Woman similarity dressed (No hate) riding a similar bike.

"Paige!" I'm greatly distracted by the bullets hitting dangerously close to my friend, so much so that the biker dude manages to tackle me hard and bring me to the ground. I squirm and try to get loose, but the bastard is heavy…or I'm weak. Or a combination.

Tom decides to stop chasing after the van, and moves to kick the man in his ribs. If he can, he'll try to transform into his rock state. If not, he'll make the attempt to kick this guy anyway.

The man Wrestles Abby down and cuffs her again in a flash. The kick knocks him off her, but he quickly recovers.

"Listen Man, we're just doin our job. Come nice and quiet like, and everything will be handled in a jiffy."

The red haired woman smirks, as the pennies stop and fly in front of the van, blowing all the tires off, so that it swerves out of the way.

The Van controls our wild, errant swerve as best it can, which isn't especially well, and we soon come to a stop. I sit back up, a little shaken. "After careful consideration, I've decided not to run her over."

A van pulls up, driven by another normal looking officer, as the Marshal checks the downed cops.

"Yup, you sure did a number on them. But they're alive, that's good."

Bending over, he heaves Abby onto his sholder, while dragging Tom to his feet.

"It's a good thing too. If any of them were hurt, this might have ended up a little more rough."

At the same time, the Red haired woman is forcing the others from the getaway car into their van.
