[[Previously:

S.H.I.E.L.D. have been trailing the Hellions ever since they left the mansion again, after a brief run in with Doctor Carmen Rosewell.

It wasn't long before the infamous Hellions luck drove matters from bad to worse. After a run in with the overtly philanthropic institute of Prometheus Corp, they discovered that, as is the case with many things, the company was not quite what it seemed.

Loathe to allow the Hellions to live with the information they had on Prometheus Corps, the company's CEO, Ayesha Hidana (more grandiosely known as Shiva, named after the Hindu deity) sent a mercenary demon known as Damascus after the Hellions. Disguised as Emma Frost, it infiltrated the Hellions and attacked them from within, but was promptly repelled.

Without the guidance of Emma Frost, the Hellions found themselves lost, and more vulnerable than ever.

Now with a grudge against Prometheus Corps and still on the run from S.H.I.E.L.D., their bad luck became apparent once again and the Hellions found themselves at the wrong place at the wrong time. A failed experiment of Prometheus Corps' was set loose on a town named Gaia, as bait for the Hellions. When the Hellions confronted it, the resulting explosion wiped out the entire town and all of its inhabitants.

The full backlash of this event is yet to be seen, but the Hellions have been unable to observe the extent of it past their own predicament; with the death count looming over their heads, The Avengers have made it an priority to bring the Hellions to 'justice'!

They aren't the only 'justice' bringers that have set their attention on the Hellions. S.H.I.E.L.D. put together a team of former super villains to take the Hellions down. This team of 'Thunderbolts' were defeated with the aid of one of their own members, Melissa Gold, codenamed Songbird and formerly the super villain known as Screaming Mimi.

Following Bruce Banner's suggestion, the Hellions took all of the Thunderbolts but Songbird and Atlas into their custody, with the intent to release them to S.H.I.E.L.D. when next they approached a town. Unfortunately, the unwanted attentions of a cosmic being curtailed this line of thinking. Nightmare set upon the Hellions.

With Nightmare's arrival, the Man Thing began stalking the Hellions too, following them wherever they went, without actually acting towards them or making his intentions clear. Nightmare, however, was much more forward. He began by haunting the dreams of Laynia Petrovna, codenamed Darkstar, filling them with unwanted portents. It wasn't long before he moved on from that, and trapped Bruce Banner in his dreaming, attempting to take the unbridled power of the Hulk for himself. When the Hellions attempted to intervene, he sent them to the dimension of his rule to keep them from diverting his attention.

That tactic didn't work very well against them. They fought through the dimension and made their way to a portal that led them back to Banner's room, where they broke off the spell Nightmare was casting to take the Hulk's power for himself. With a curse, Nightmare warped out.

He made a point of telling the Hellions that he wasn't gone, and that their dealings were not over, though.

For the last week, Nightmare has been reappearing around the bus, playing with some of the Hellions for his entertainment. In his actions, he was looking to achieve little other than amusement for himself, except for in the case of Darya Potemkin… who he managed to, with more than a little abuse of his power, manipulate into agreeing to betray the team.]]

The Hellions are converged in the lower seating [yeah, yeah] while Banner's driving the bus manually, having shut the automated system down to lessen the likelihood of being tracked. They're new destination is the state of New York, the border of which they'll leave the Thunderbolts before moving on to the mansion.

As the bus turns a bend on the cliff road, a buzz comes through the communications system, followed by a raze of static.

A moment later, a clear, metallic voice comes through.

"Stop the bus, Bruce."

"This is your call," Banner comments, glancing through the windshield. As soon as they turn another bend, Iron Man becomes visible, standing on the road where it's straightened, a little further ahead.

"Frankly, I want to run him down."

[Kee'an's got powers! He's a telepath!]

"Hnn. You know, I'm headstrong, but it might not be the best idea."

Regardless of that fact, Banner continues driving dead ahead, and slams the bus straight into Iron Man, who clamps his hands around the front of the bus. He keeps on driving until he slams the front of the bus into a rock wall, Iron Man sandwiched between the two surfaces.

"We should get out," he says before transforming into the Hulk.

Iron Man hefts the bus off of himself, and it rolls back down the road a tiny bit, despite the breaks being on.

"I gave you the chance to surrender. You should have take it."

He tilts the helmeted head down slightly, and seems to speak to his suit.

"Repulsors powered to 5 percent."

A blast shoots out of his hand, knocking Wreck away.

Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 12:35pm

Darya gets out of the bus, leaping at Banner, trying to drive a knife into one of the slits in his visor.

Post by sam2 on Jul 27, 2007, 12:35pm

I dive out of the way of his blast, picking up the closest object I can find and hurling it at him.

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 12:37pm

The knife doesn't make it through the visor. Instead, he wrests it from her hands and throws it at Alexander.

Kee'an grabs a chunk of rock out of the ground and it slams into Iron Man with a surprising amount of force, knocking him down again.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Jesse "Masstress" Buchanon on Jul 27, 2007, 12:38pm

No time to screw around…

Jesse doesn't bother with some lame quip, or a flight of pennies. She knows they won't do anything against an Avenger. Hell, she'd be surprised if what she was planning did anything in the first place. But it's worth a shot.

She aims a level 10 Hulkbuster at Iron Man's balls. Not the suit, but the man inside.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 12:39pm

Darya tries grabbing on to Iron man's shoulder's and ramming her knee up against his chin, while using his shoulders to lift herself.

Pulling himself up to a crawling position, Wreck glares.

"Shoot at the kids first, ask if they actually did what you're accusing them of later. Some hero you are."

He tries to melt Iron Man's helmet.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 12:42pm

Iron Man is actually prepared for that, surprisingly enough. An antigravitational field around his suit is triggered when Jesse starts her attack, but… it's an underestimation. The attack gets through, but it's weaker. Still enough to keep him down for the moment, though.

A pained grunt comes through the mask, followed by an exclamation that none of them wanted to hear.

"You - nnn… should have just given in. Stopped when you had the chance. AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!"

Seemingly out of nowhere, an assortment of Avengers drop in from the air, the non-fliers being carried by the fliers. The Black Widow, Captain America, Ms. Marvel, Wonder Man and Thor.

Shield eats the brunt of the hit, but I still get tossed. Getting back up I… really wish my head hurt less. But that's neither here nor there. Looking back to, whafuck?! I duck under the knife, muttering "Douche." under my breath. I get back up and… and… and…

"There a cliff we can jump off of?"

"Do you actually think that I don't know your powers?" Iron Man asks with another pained, annoyed grunt as he rises to his feet. A forcefield around his armour blocks off Wreck's attack. He raises his forearm, and a dart shoots out of his wrist, straight into Wreck's neck, cutting off his entropy ability.

"That one, specifically, is one that I won't be allowing you."


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Wreck on Jul 27, 2007, 12:45pm

Wreck looks up in astonishment.

"Oh, shit…..it's BRUCE CAMPBELL!"

He waves goofily at Wonder Man, before trying to tug the dart out of his neck.

"Ow."

There's a cliff to Alexander's left since… they were driving along a cliff road. It doesn't look like he'd survive the fall, though.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 12:46pm

At being ignored, Darya turns his hands into string, slipping inside the slits in his visor, going for the neck, where it'll wrap around and choking Iron-man until he falls unconscious.

"Did you anticipate this? Bitch."


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 12:48pm

The dart comes out, but the effect is down.

Iron Man falls again, but a electric charge runs through from inside his suit, electrocuting Darya

"Yes, actually," he responds.

A disturbing smile crosses Captain America's face.

"That's a shame. TAKE THEM DOWN!"

He throws the shield into Kee'an's chest, and it bounces back after hitting him.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Wreck on Jul 27, 2007, 12:49pm

Wreck decides to sit calmly on the ground. Not like trying to fight with Thor sans half of his powers would do a ton of good.

"Yeah, about that, are you listening? We didn't do what you keep accusing us of. And what the FUCK is up with Captain America?"


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 12:51pm

All of a sudden, the Avengers seem to have lost that talkative quality they were exhibiting a moment ago. Well… that Iron Man was exhibiting. Another throw of the shield takes Wreck's head off and Wonder Man moves to strike Alexander, while Black Widow jumps at Jesse, aiming a kick at her head.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Jesse "Masstress" Buchanon on Jul 27, 2007, 12:52pm

"HOLY!"

Jesse picks up a friggin' rock, and just heaves it the hell at Cap. She gives it the weight of a couple dozen cannon balls, and just keeps friggin' picking up rocks and tossing them at him.

Unfortunately she doesn't see the Black Widow coming at her, and is beaned pretty square on the side of the head. She hits the ground hard, and tries to shake it off.

Darya takes her gun and fires a bullet to Captain America's shoulder.

"Argh!"

That freaking hurt! After getting up, I rush to takle him the next time he throws his shield, so he can't use it to protect himself.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Alexander "Cadmus" Baptiste on Jul 27, 2007, 12:54pm

Grabbing Wonder Man as he approaches, I try to monkey flip him into the rock face, before getting back up and waiting for him to double back.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 12:54pm

The first rock connects, hard, hitting Captain America in the chest and knocking him out of the bullet's path. His shield comes up and deflects the other rocks.

Thor hasn't joined the assault on the Hellions. Mostly because he's already lost his hammer in combat with Banner, and they're still going at it.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 12:55pm

Captain America's too preoccupied to throw the shield, so Kee'an will have to do something else.

Wonder Man goes flying into Kee'an from the monkey flip, and hops back to his feet, dashing back at Alexander and ducking under his arms this time, delivering an uppercut to his jaw.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Wreck on Jul 27, 2007, 12:56pm

Popping back up, Wreck shakes his head.

"Well, apparently you didn't study me ALL that well. I sort of 'reset' when I die. Keeps me from getting drunk. And it should keep me from having whatever the hell you just shot into me in my system."

Probably. Hopefully. He tries to test it by tossing up a very painful field starting at Cap's feet and working up.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 12:57pm

If Iron Man gets up, Darya will launch a barrage of attacks at him to keep him off balance. Pistolwhipping his face. Kicking the side of his leg. Punching his gut. She'll then finish it by aiming her gun on the chest triangle target Iron man has and empty her entire clip on it, point blank.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 12:57pm

Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Iron Man's done his research, and what's been introduced into Wreck's system is an adaptive genetic parasite, that won't die with him.

Darya's attacks really don't do that much… because, well, she's attacking Iron Man. Bullets aren't going to damage the suit, and not many of her other attacks will, either. He's still fairly grounded by Jesse's initial attack, though.

Darya has her own concerns as Captain America slams his shield into her leg from where he lies.

Her leg unravels as soon as she's hit moving with the Shield.

"You know even when my father was a Soviet Union soldier he respected you. Called you a true patriot, who truely fought for what he believed is right."

She leaps in the air.

"Meeting you in person…"

Moving to stomp his face into the ground.

"I'm quite disappointed."

The Iron Bus is… fairly intact, but Kee'an might not want to be near it for much longer. That's where Thor and Banner are fighting, and it looks like Thor has the slight upperhand.

Wreck snaps his fingers, looking at them a little like a lost puppy. Then shrugs, draws a gun and shoots for Black Widow while she's not paying attention.

Kee'an distracts Thor long enough for Banner to land another solid hit on him, knocking him into a rock wall and turning their own fight into Banner's favour. Somehow Kee'an manages this without actually being harmed.

[You too? Jump at Thor? Okay….]

But Alexander gets in his way, knocking him aside through the air before he hits the rockface. He comes to regret it. A punch from Thor knocks Alexander up into the air, to the waiting Wonder Man, who spikes him back down.

Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 1:15pm

The blow staggers Iron Man, but while the shield is, well… Captain America's shield, it can't do that much damage to Iron Man without superhuman force behind it.

Jesse's thrown off when Thor focuses, bringing lightning down on the Hulk, right next to Jesse, on Thor, and on the bus.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II
Post by Joshua/Darya/Kara/Marcus on Jul 27, 2007, 1:18pm

Holding the shield, Darya continues smashing Iron Man with it, again sometimes to keep him off balance. Sometimes with the top, sometimes with the edge. Then she'll try, once's he sufficiently dizzy, to run towards him, shield first, and push him off the cliff.

Post by Meisha "Muse" Aisha on Jul 27, 2007, 1:22pm

The bullet hits Thor's skin and turns his attention to Wreck, with a stinging in his back. He's distracted, though, when the bus splits in two because of the lightning that struck it a moment ago, and one half starts sliding off of the cliff. The half that had the Thunderbolts in it.

Each blow staggers Iron Man further, and though it doesn't make him particularly dizzy, it keeps him off balance as he stumbles further and further to the edge of the cliff, and then falls off.

Wonder Man ploughs into Alexander, driving him to the ground, and forcing him to let go of the bus, which rolls off of the edge.

Only to be caught by the Hulk, who keeps from falling with it, by grabbing onto the edge of the cliff… an edge that doesn't look all too stable.

Since making the shield heavier now would just break Darya's fingers, Jesse goes ahead and reduces the weight of the bus as much as possible. But it takes concentration, and she can't really multitask right now.


Re: The Hellions #18 - Promethean Scream II

That does sound like a viable option, but as the edge of the cliff-face starts to crack, it seems disctinctly less viable.

Black Widow's surprisingly still alive, but her costume's tattered… leaving the kevlar underneath visible. She staggers towards Jesse and Kee'an sweeping Kee'an's feet out from beneath him and then springing up and kicking Jesse in the chest, slightly slower than she would normally be.

A searing pain runs through Wreck's face, and then through the rest of his body as he feels himself fade.

Wreck snaps awake, the pain still running through him as his face is burned away by acid, and he dies.

Only to reform in Banner's room, the Man Thing's hand on his face and all of the rest of the Hellions lying around him, asleep.

Alexander and Darya aren't fast enough. The edge of the cliff-face snaps off and the bus starts to fall… along with Banner and all of its occupants.

A voice whispers into Darya's ear, breaking the harsh whistling that she hears as she rushes to the ground.

"Someone's breaking the rules, my dear. I'm afraid you'll have to deal with them. It's all a part of the job…."

She fades out.

Wonder Man manages to catch Alexander, but he doesn't get to the bus before it crashes into the ground. A few moments later, it explodes.

Seemingly bloodlusted, Thor dives off of the cliff after the rest. Still without his hammer, he takes it in free fall, and smashes into the ground below, directly into the Hulk. The impact shatters most of the Hulk's ribs, and Thor wraps his hands around the Hulk's neck, quickly snapping it before the Hulk has the chance to do the same to him.

Rising, he rushes Alexander, pinning him to the ground and calling down lightning bolt after lightning bolt after lightning bolt…..

He pulls back from a very charred corpse.
