Rogue has called an emergency meeting in the the Wreck Room.

Rogue is leaning against the wall next to a computer screen, which is displaying a Power Point presentation.

"Alrighty, cats and kids, ah have good news and bad new for ya'll.

Good news is some of ya are gonna head out to Ontario, California.

Bad news is we're kind of handling a life or death situation here. Nothin' as bad as our usual drama, but it's about taking care of our own."

Why do I find it odd that Rogue knows how to make a Power Point presentation? I'm all thumbs with that sort of thing…never can tell a person.

I walk in the room, standing next to Marisol and looking on.

Rogue clicks the first slide on the screen.

"This," and the trim, sable haired singer of Cats Laughing appearson screen, "is Lila Cheney. Previous New Mutants class was well acquain'ed with her."

She clicks again. "And ya'll know Alison Blaire, pop-diva, and X-Man legend…stop snickerin' back there."

She folds her arms and looks at the group. "They've been kidnapped. We know who's responsible. We have footage.

Obviously this reeks of a trap."

She never had entirely gotten over her suspicion that Rogue didn't like her. It was probably in her head, but… She felt uncomfortable talking to her.

Re: Untold Tales: X-Cutioner's Song
Post by Alkaline on Feb 24, 2007, 3:14pm

Rogue clicks again, and now we get grainy footage on screen.

It's a panned out security shot of a parking lot, and Alison and Lila are walking out of a side alley on the left of the screen. To the right, two men in bad 80's outfits come on screen, and walk towards the ladies.

Suddenly the two men simultaneosly punch the women in the stomach, the women fall unconcious, and are slung over the men's shoulders.

A Hostess Delivery van pulls up, blocking the view, and as it screeches off, the parking lot is once again empty.

Rogue clears her throat. "That tape was, uh…Fed-Exed to us, with a note. Honest to God," and the students can feel the ridicule in her voice.

Re: Untold Tales: X-Cutioner's Song

The footage meant nothing to Marisol. She decided not to repeat her question.

They kidnapped a Hostess Delivery van? Now it's personal…

Re: Untold Tales: X-Cutioner's Song
Post by Alkaline on Feb 24, 2007, 3:20pm

Rogue clears her throat above the murmur of her students, and and unfolds a typed letter.

"X-Men -

I have captured your friends, and will be holding them until you divulge the rest of your secrets to me. Ha. Ha. Ha…"

Rogue rolls her eyes. "I swear, it's like a bad Nintendo game plot or something…Anyway, thanks to SHIELD and all, we know it's a small time punk, Carl Denti, calls himself the X-Cutioner. He's nothin' fancy, just some Fed spook gone rogue. Oh, and he has a bunch of Shi'ar tech and stuff."

Rogue shrugs apathetically.

"SHIELD traced him to Ontario Mills mall in California. It'd be a simple op for them to catch their own guy, but why spend the government money, and why waste my Saturday, when I can count on you guys to bag this chump?

Get my drift?"


Re: Untold Tales: X-Cutioner's Song
Post by Armando "Army" Rosewell on Feb 24, 2007, 3:21pm

I wouldn't mind that, actually. A twinkie would go down smooth right about now. "Hm…well, we could always call the Hostess company around that area and just see if they've got any missing vans. That might help."


Re: Untold Tales: X-Cutioner's Song

Rogue smirks. "Well, this guy is lame. He runs around with Shi'ar Tech and a costume and goes all Punisher on mutants. Except with 1/10 of the flair."

She looks at Marisol. "It's only easy to get alien tech because we used to let the gov't store it for us*, and, you can fill in the blanks."

«*Honest to god TRUTH, verity seekers!»

Marisol sighed.
"What's this…" She had already forgotten the name already. "…guy's grudge with us anyway? Just a mutant-hater? And how did he know to send the letter here? I mean, if we know…"


Re: Untold Tales: X-Cutioner's Song
Post by Armando "Army" Rosewell on Feb 24, 2007, 3:28pm

Why do I get the feeling that, justbecause Rogue said it would easy, there'll be something involved with this mission that makes it ten times worse than it should be?

"Well, if that's all there is to it, let's get cracking."


Re: Untold Tales: X-Cutioner's Song

Rogue looks at Marisol. "Honey, the guy has a grudge against all 'unpunished' mutants. You know the general consensus, The X-Men would be a better target than Operation: Desert Storm or something. We're evil," Rogue says, hand-quoting the last part.

"Suit up, you take this guy down fast enough, you can grab some Carl's Jr. or go to Universal Studios."

The X-Jet touches down at Ontario Airport. Being the Marvel Universe, people are either indifferent to an RS-73 touching down via VTOL methods, or they're distracted by some other crisis on the East Coast. Actually, being California…nah, never mind.

Marcus was wearing a hood over his head, keeping it lowered. Having glowing particles stream out of you constantly kind of made him difficult for him to be discreet. Which was why he hadn't gone out much since he came to the mansion.

The Mutants pile in the van, and set out on a very cramped, smoky ride through Ontario. The tinny speakers are straining out The Fugees. Being Sunny California, it's pouring rain.

They are dropped within walking distance of the mall, although now there are several SWAT vans and two helicopters circling the mall.

The parking lot is still crowded, as the majority of the shoppers are held hostage inside. The only cover, if needed, are cars, SUVs, and palm trees.

Marisol knew what to do here. She was rather indecisive, but she had good instincts.
First, she moved ahead of Amelia slightly, so she could shield her from any stray shorts. Then, in the matter of a few seconds, she transformed. Her body engorged itself dramatically and wrenched apart into a rather monstrous snake-like thing. Then she quickly made do towards the guard.
Ideally, he would be terrified of her, and too shocked to get off a single shot before she pounced him and knocked him unconscious…

She decided not to think about it, and rushed onwards towards the last thugs in the store. She extended her arms into large shield-like constructs between them and the civilians. She then pretty much jumped them. Her plan was simple: get on top of them and knock them out with her mass.

Marisol and Incendiary search around the Sam/Ash, and find none other than the X-Cutioner himself hanging out in the back room, with a Dazzler and Lila tied up to chair in a stereotypical manner. He also has a tape player next to him on a table, but he turns it off the moment he sees them. "What? Who are you punks?"

Meanwhile the others stand triumphant over the dazed Shockers, but they're surprised to see them brandishing the SHIELD logo. One of the Shockers is still half-conscious, and mumbles. "Damn kids…I swear, the X-Men would've waited for us…knew we should've gotten them."

He manages to sit up, rubbing his chest, and some of the other troops are coming to. "We were informed that there might be superpowered individuals involved, and when you kids came barreling out of nowhere, we took appropriate action.

X-Cutioner gets face-planted at high speed by Hype, but that Shi'ar shielding is some nifty stuff; he gets up the next second and fires this weird looking gun. A green gooey substance sprays out and wraps itself around Hype, as if it had a mind of it's own.

Anticipating more attacks, the X-Cutioner puts up a field around the door to the room, so that the New Mutants could come in, but do nothing more than watch. He seems to have something on his mind…

"Please…" Dazzler moans. "Let us go…"

"In a minute, in a minute. Once you here my old college band play, you'll be begging to let us sign on to your label.

X-Cutioner hits PLAY on the tape player, and the most godawful music begins to play. It really defies description, but to summarize…

A bunch of random guitar strings and drum taps, followed by raucous symbol crashes.

"TREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!"

A ridiculously long and unharmonic guitar solo, which sounds like the guitar only had two strings.

"Yes, TREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESS! We love TREEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!"

The sound of someone smashing their guitar, then burning their guitar, the stomping on their guitar, and the drum set booming over it all.

"Go go, TREEEEEEESSSSS!"

Zephyr takes Joe for a flight, but has a lot more difficulty with it than usual. He's a bit more used to flying with people who are about half Joe's weight.

X-Cutioner pops out of the van, this time with a whole crate of Hostess Fruit pies, and throws them at Hype, scoring a direct hit.

Marisol gasped mildly as a laser beam shot by very close to her head. Of course, it made no difference to her what part would get hit - it would just hurt like hell any way.
"Oh, no, you didn't," she muttered and pulled back to the roof.
She wasn't exactly sure what to do. Stabbing at the insides of the driver's cabin seemed like an option, but that presented a danger to the traffic she wasn't willing to risk. She turned her hand into a blade and started cutting away the roof of the front part of the van carefully. She remained a few feet away, herself, in case the thug inside started shooting upwards.

"Too heavy?" Zephyr can't feel his arms anymore. "No, no. I'm fine. Really."

The thug inside starts shooting randomly, but since Marisol's far enough away, she doesn't get him. She's opening the hub just a sardine can, which is distracting - but it's not quite as distracting as hitting Wreck. The motorcycle gets knocked away and Wreck falls under the van and he catches on to a broken pipe, getting dragging along.

Meanwhile, Marcus manages to get the kids out of the way.

Marisol took a deep breath. She really didn't have to, but she had kept some habits from when she still had a human body. It didn't really matter.
She jumped inside the driver's cabin. She was mainly counting on being fast enough to disarm and knock out the thug, but if he did get off a shot… well, she supposed she'd just have to try evading or suffer through the pain.

Bouncing along the street, Wreck has just enough time to observe a lovely streak of red racing down the road behind the van.

Wreck manages to make a hole in the side of the van…and Dazzler starts to fall out of it, screaming weakly all the way. The van's starting to slow down, though…but will it stop in time?

Marcus melts the doors off, leaving X-Cutioner exposed. He's busy, anyway, desperately trying to pull Dazzler back in by her roller skates.

Marisol hissed, and sunk on the driver's seat. She took a few moments off to recuperate from the pain, when she suddenly realized she didn't HAVE any moments to spare. The car was driverless now.

With a somewhat panicked expression, she righted herself on the seat and looked over the thingies before her. She had never driven a car before, but she had a vague idea. With no small measure of uncertainty, she took hold of the wheel and gently pressed her foot on the break pedal. She tested it briefly at first to make sure it WAS the breaks, not the gas. She wanted to bring the van to a halt slowly.

Maria Hill just looks at Will for a second, eying his gifts. "I don't want your shit, I don't care about your hair, and I don't want excuses. You all came barging into a hostage situation without receiving any intelligence from us, when you knew full well that we'd be handling the situation. You caused all sorts of damage in the mall, and it's only by sheer luck that no one was seriously injured. I heard good things about you New Mutants, but I'm starting to wonder just how overrated you all are."

She turns to Sephula. "And you, shut the hell up. You weren't even there."

Sara wants to take the lecture maturely, but she's still furious over the goo in her hair, so she decides to speak up. She stands straight up and let's herself be heard.

"Hey! We did our best! Sure we didn't have good orders, and yeah, we might not have been totally prepared, but we handled it! We saved lives today! You can tell us how bad we did all you want, but your guys attacked us too! So you don't have to like us, and you don't have to tell us good job, but you can't just stand here and tell us how badly we messed up, because we didn't!"

Sara pouts.

"And my hair!"

Zephyr looks at Hype. "Sorry about the hair. If it makes you feel better, green's a nice color for you."

Hill turns to Hype herself, standing in the doorway. "You don't realize how lucky you all were today. My men attacked you because they were expecting superpowered combatants. If you'd followed protocol, we could have gotten you all in tactically, instead of running around like idiots and putting innocent lives at risk."

Tell you what, to pay you back, how about I treat you all to a free concert? Limo ride, dinner, backstage stuff, the works."

Zephyr raises his hand. "Actually, I have a question, Miss…Dazzler. What does it feel like to have no soul and be responsible for the death of good music?"

Dazzler stares at him for a moment. Then ignores him. "So, what do you say?"
