Bruce Banner calls the Hellions down to the bottom level. He and Keira are sitting near a computer screen, chatting it up when the rest of the team gets there.

"Everyone, this is Keira. She's visiting us from the West school, everybody say hello."

«They can chat for a bit while I finalize everything.»

Keira looks at Val, "Sorry, I was just excited! Kelly and I ended up meeting in the training room, but I didn't know she would be here!"

Keira nods at Wreck, "Yeah! The mansion was getting way too crowded, so a bunch of us moved out West. Mimic founded the school in an old Cobra base, but then one of my teammates killed him. And then Deadpool was in charge us, but he was a terrible leader. So now Havok and Multiple Man teach us."

A glance flies in Valerie's direction, and I take the volume down a notch or several, but continue smiling cheerily, and speaking in the same tone.

"Oh, sorry Valerie! What's wrong? Didn't you get enough sleep? I think there's some aspirin in the dashboard, if you've got a headache!"

"Alright, you kids can socialize later. We've got business to take care of."

Bruce stands up and begins fiddling with the computer behind him. He turns around and addresses the kids.

"I heard one of you guys complaining that you don't get go act like heroes anymore. Today you're going to get your chance."

Up on the the monitor appears this ranch:

[image]

"This is the ranch of Techs McMechanoid, one of the biggest meat suppliers for the entire country. His body was found around a month ago in a public park, in a coma. It looked like the guy had just passed out or something. It seemed suspicious, but the police are so swamped they didn't even bother checking out his house. I want you guys to go do that. You'll be looking for any signs of foul play. This guy was a pretty influential philanthropist, and with him dead a lot of small businesses are going to shut down. This could be intentional, or it could be a coincidence. Either way, ever since the man was killed his company hasn't shipped out a single packet of beef. And damn it, I like my burgers. Any questions?"

Bruce sees the apathetic and weirded out eyes of his students.

"I know, the circumstances are a little out of your experience, but remember that you're investigating a possible attempted murder. This is a big deal, so be careful."

"You guys can do this any way you need to. Quiet, loud, however. I'll be staying behind to monitor you from here, so I may give you some advice from time to time. But overall, it'll be you guys using your best judgement."

~Fast Forward~

When the Iron Bus arrives at the ranch, it is pretty different from the picture on the computer before. Not only is there a 7 foot tall electric fence around the perimeter of the compound, but there are security cameras perched in several spots on the roof. There are also 4 bulls strutting around the main yard, and they look pissed off for whatever reason.

From where the team is situated, you can see a certain amount of movement inside the house, like something very small is bouncing around. And it's strange… But the ground seems to be vibrating, almost imperceptibly.

The cameras blow out, but one of the bulls sees the muzzle flash out of the corner of it's eye.

"Moooooo."

It looks around, and begins walking toward the van. It's almost to the electric fence, and shows no signs of stopping.

The bull's eyes narrow, and it stands on it's hind legs. It's front hoof touches what looks like an earpiece.

"We have intrOOOOOders, repeat, we have intrOOOOOders. MOOOOOOving in to engage, requesting backup."

With a touch, the bull deactivates the electric fence, moves through the gate, and proceeds to charge at Keira, ignoring the gunshot.

"No, you'll scare him!"

What what what what what….

Then I freeze as the bull starts charging.

"That's not right…."

I fly in front of him, placing my hands on his horns and trying to keep him from charging into Keira.

Post by Pester on Jul 30, 2007, 12:39pm

The bull flips Kelly over his head, before he's hit with a shot. He moos in pain, but you seem to have just pissed him off. The raging bull rears up and tries to stomp Kelly.

Meanwhile, his three bull friends are only a few feet away from the van, they've snuck up on you. Wreck sees them out of the corner of his eye in his new location.

The flames piss off the bull further, and it seems to be wearing down. As it's feet are pulled out from under it by Darya, he collapses at Wreck's feet, panting heavily.

"Dar-" I'm cut off when the hoof comes down. I don't want to hurt the bull… it doesn't look like that'll be much of a concern. I try to catch the hoof and block the attack, but if what happened a moment ago's any indication, he's strong - stronger than me. And I don't have enough time to move out of the way, either.

Meanwhile, the three ninja bulls have successfully snuck up on the team, and they all flip the van over. It rolls down a hill, and Banner can be heard inside, cursing up a storm.

Post by Pester on Jul 30, 2007, 12:45pm

It leaves red marks across their noses, but these bulls were not picked because they're wimps; they charge on through Darya's attacks, and charge her as a unit. They'll be on her in seconds.

Keira is able to successfully sync with the middle bull. She suddenly feels not only angry, but noticeably smarter for some reason.

Oh… it looks like there's not much choice but this.

I aim a blast at one of the bulls - but my eyes fall on a tree a few feet from the compound. I take the the air and dash to that instead, snapping it off and trying to throw it down in front of the bulls to block off their path.

The bull Darya chokes lays down on the ground, subdued.

The middle bull slams horn first into the tree, getting it's horns stuck deep in the trunk. It is unable to get out.

Meanwhile, the third bull in their group is turned to paste, by entropy and lightening.

The two living bulls in the group are unconscious, but breathing steadily. As is the one in the field in front of the front door, that was trying to charge Wreck. If the one Darya is sitting on was conscious, he'd be super pissed.

The house itself looks fairly normal, aside from the sparking security cameras on the roof. If somebody were to try and open the door, they'd notice that it was heavily reinforced.

The door takes a little longer to dissolve than Wreck had thought, seeing as it was three feet of reinforcement.

The majority of the bullets find their mark, and the creature falls to the ground. The force of the bullets was softened by it's thick wool, but it still hurts like a bitch. The creature lays down on the floor, bleeting softly for mercy.

Unfortunately, kelly should have paid more attention to her surroundings. A bullet enters and exits through her left arm.

Meanwhile, Darya hears what sounds like a clucking behind her, as a chicken runs across a keyboard on the desk behind her. The chicken looks at her pleadingly.

Keira has a tricky time flying around inside an office, but the manages to avoid getting mangled by a ceiling fan. She sees a little hole in the wall on the floor, where a little mouse pokes it's head out to look at the intruders.

The chicken jumps up and down on the keyboard, glad for the recognition:

"ghghghghgh"

it looks at the screen and repeatedly jumps on the backspace button, before running across the keys again:

"i am owner of ranch. need u help. bulls taken over. put me in chicken. they do worse 2 rest of people"

When they get to the bottom, everyone is in a massive cavern. Ahead of them, they see why the stairs were unguarded: Apparently all the bulls that weren't in the field on guard duty are down here in the cave. They are all standing on their hind legs and stomping, which accounts for the vibrations.

All the way down the cavern, about an eight of a mile away, there is what looks like a lone bull in a red suit, standing behind a large podium, addressing the crowd of bulls. The Bovine Diviner stands behind the suited bull. It's 10 feet tall, and something inside the middle of it is spinning rapidly, emitting a faint light. They're both on a stage about 3 feet off the floor.

As the head bull clears his throat, the mass of meat before him quiets down.

"Friends," he says in a deep voice. "Soon, everything we've hoped for shall come together. When we activate the retro-fitted Bovine Diviner, we will finally be able to make the human oppressors MOOOOOOOOve over from their dominating ways!"

At this, there is a great cheering and stamping of hooves amidst the crowd, which he silences by raising a hand.

"We cannot celebrate yet! Though the changes to the Diviner are almost complete, we must not forget our MOOOOOOOtivation. Even as our former masters are turned into the MOOOOOOOOOrons we once were, we must remember to treat them with the same level of respect they treated us…"

The silence of confusion rises from the crowd.

"Now we will ride them! Now we will eat them! They will live in the petting zoos, and we will pet them! MOOOOOO!!! MOOOOOOO!!! MOOOOOO!!!"

The crowd erupts, hundreds of bovine stomping and moooing in feverish patriotism. They're so loud and busy, they don't even notice the Hellions.

The crowd of bulls are fervent for their cause, but they're not as tough as the security bulls. A few of them are rendered unconscious by the lightning, but more just rise up in their place.

Wreck is able to get to the machine unfettered, nobody wants anything to do with him after seeing him vaporize a couple of their friends.

Kelly's shot is able to strike the machine once before Taurus leaps up and splits her mighty hammer with a shot from his powerful horns.

Screeching to a halt, Wreck raises an eyebrow. Then shrugs, grabbing the machine and flooding it with as much entropy as he can.

The majority of Darya's shots connect and pierce the machine. All the cows in the area begin to sway as they feel some of their intelligence drop.

They've gone from smart and angry, to stupid and angry. That's much worse, as 17 of them charge Darya's position, all while shouting things about ice cream and pants measles.

I've got to take him out of the way without hurting him, but… there's the whole question of, you know, how.

I try forming a box around Taurus and lifting him into the air, away from the machine.

Darya whips them all, trying to herd them away. Her whip cracks in the air like… a bullwhip.

The machine explodes in a brightly colored display of entropy and fire.

"No… NO! SO CLOSE! SO… pretty… ice cream… mooooooo."

Taurus Bulba, and all the rest of the bulls are on all four hooves now. Bulba looks around the box, confused and mooing peacefully. The hundreds of other bulls have calmed down, and are now sniffing each other's butts.

One of them licks Darya, and rubs his wet nose against her arm.

I set the box down and dissipate it with a relieved sigh.

His eyes glowing an odd shade of red behind his glasses, Wreck stumbles in circles.

"That was fun. Now stop the bugs from eating my head, mommy."

"Eww.."

She pushes the bull away.

"Remind me to beat up Techs Mcmechanoid when he wakes up."
