Trail Of Destruction


Trail of destruction
Post by Michael "Chi" Placio on Dec 2, 2006, 0:10

Quick recap. Angel has gathered the heroes together. They are on a mission to go to the ruins of the Daily Bugle building, and recover Downfall's brother, a comatose Dil. Dil seems to be the key of fixing this whole mess.

Unfortunately, Swelter and Partisan have overheard these plans, and have a head start in taking off after Dil.

Rose punches a hole in the wall, and leads the others on a chase. Sephula covers their exit with a blast of blinding light. Angel is pretty concerned about how he's going to cover up that hole…so much for an inconspicous meeting.Re: Trail of destruction

Swelter, Partisan and the third member of their party emerged from the alleyway a few minutes before the heroes. Blight watched all this, but instead of following them, he parked himself in front of the alleyway to wait for the heroes to arrive.

The three of them move through the streets quickly. Turning a corner a few blocks from the Bugle building, they find themselves facing off against a few of Magneto's X-Men. Nightcrawler and Quicksilver have just emerged from a nearby building. Nightcrawler is carrying a package of some sort. He vanishes for a second, returning without the package, "Do we have time?" Nightcrawlers asks.

Quicksilver nods, "For these losers? Always!" Quicksilver speeds into a blur and tries to land a punch on Swelter. Nightcrawler vanishes and appears to the left of Partisan swinging his sword around to try and remove Partisan's head. Re: Trail of destruction

"You're just not fast enough." Swelter sends a blast of fire at Quicksilver hoping it will at least knock him down. "We really don't have time for this shit."Re: Trail of destruction

<I'm not certain of how the timing of this fits with the other thread. Feel free to move stuff around if I'm off>

Having deposited the collection of heroes into the tunnels running beneath the city, Blight shakes his head.

"Hmph. Join them? I think not…..but all the same….."

He extends his staff. The skull at the tip of it shifts in his hand, and he begins to trace the path they took. It would seem to be guiding him, silently…..Re: Trail of destruction

«Yeah, that is pretty much what I was expecting, Wreck. Thanks!»

Quicksilver dodges past the fire and laughes at Swelter, "Just as pathetic as ever."

The third person in the villain party reveals himself. He is cloaked in the robes of one of Apocalypse's Madri, but he is not one of their sacred order. He is just an overly training telepath who calls himself Stryker. Stryker lifts his hand and Quicksilver turns his attention towards Nightcrawler. Stryker looks at Partisan and Swelter, "If you two are done playing, we've got work to do."Re: Trail of destruction

His bones ached as he stalked the group of mutants, but Blight paid no heed. Steadily he marched above ground, keeping pace as they marched below.

At last they had reached their destination, climbing a ladder and reaching the shattered remnants of a massive building. One he was altogether familiar with.

He continued watching as a large mob of flatscans descended upon them. Attacked, furiously.

"……yes, I know," he said to the skull, holding it close to his ear. "For now we watch, and we wait."

He sits upon the dirt, planting the staff before him.

"We are nothing if not patient, my friend."Re: Trail of destruction

"I'm ready, this was merely a distraction. Given the time, I could have handled both of them."Re: Trail of destruction

The moment Partisan felt the azure mutate’s blade hover a centimeter away from his helmet, he glided to his left at a swift alacrity, dodging it with ease, then did a somersault in order to land behind his attacker. With his broad sword drawn, he punctured Nightcrawler in his shoulder, then placed the blade under the mutant’s neck, who was now lying on the pavement.

“Think you have enough time to teleport before I can play guillotine? Let’s find out, if your willing to.”

His grip tightened, ready to dispose of the nuisance, when Stryker surfaced.

“Well, well, well. Look’s like it’s the phony Madri come to tell us what suicide run we’ll partake in today,” Partisan muses. He sheathes his broad sword, and kicks the mutant below him. “Seems like luck is on your side, blue boy. Sorry about that gash.”

Stryker looks at Partisan coldly, "Let's just go. We have work to do." He turns his back on Quicksilver and Nightcrawler and leads them towards the Bugle.

«Meanwhile, the heroes have been delayed by Blight, Morlocks, and now Apocalypse soldiers…you guys have a head start»Re: Trail of destruction

Swelter follows Stryker to towards the Bugle. "Lets just kill this kid and end any hope they have about taking Lord Apocalypse out of power. Where is he?"Re: Trail of destruction

Stryker scans the building. "Hmmm….I am getting only a few scattered mental patterns towards the upper floors. No idea which one is his…"
