DC Recreated: Legion of Doom #8 - Ravens

Soze Munitions Building, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

With a hiss the door to the sealed vault on the 101st floor slid open revealing racks of experimental and illegal weaponry arranged around a central glass box, the entrance to which was secured by an airlock. Awestruck the three security guards, each one carrying a duffle bag other their shoulder, walked inside, the door closing behind them, sealing them inside with enough hardware to take a small country.

“Okay as soon as we access the sealed chamber we are on a timer.” One of the guards stated as she stripped off her uniform and wigs, the other two following suit before unzipping their bags and removing replacement clothes. “Blitzkrieg, set the charges to blow as soon as we have the canister.” She added before throwing a glittering cape over her shoulder.

“Got it Tiger Moth.” Blitzkrieg chirped as she pulled on the corseted tutu and matching gloves. Reaching into the bags she pulled out a demolition charge and set the timer as the other two women walked up to the airlock.

“Willow you think you can crack it?” Tiger Moth asked as her comrade the White Willow removed a machete strapped to her leg and brought the blade down on the computerised lock, the keypad sparking as the airlock opened allowing them both to step inside and grab the canister sitting in the middle of the room.

“Oh my god we got it.” Blitzkrieg gasped. “Cheshire is going to love this; it pretty much secures our place on the Ravens. And after that business with Vertigo everyone in the Legion is on edge” She added as the doors slid open and a set of smoke grenades rolled in belching thick grey smoke, the dark fog being joined seconds later by the clatter of assault weapons firing, the three villainesses sliding behind cover just in time.

“Intruders.” An Arabic accented voice announced. “Surrender now and we will make a concerted effort to make sure you are dead before we hand you over to the authorities.”

“That’s the lesser of the two options we have?” Blitzkrieg gasped as Tiger Moth stood off and spread her cape wide, the swirling colours and patterns causing the guards fire to go wide. Running to the back of the room White Willow cut through the shutters, to reveal the cityscape stretching like a concrete canyon away from them. Running to join them Blitzkrieg flew the guards an air kiss before all three of them leapt from the window, the vault being rocked by a massive explosion seconds later. Coughing one of the guards got to her feet, a bullet proof vest slung over her black dress and a pistol in her hand.

”Cobalt, Persian this is Director Soze, Project Emerald Star has been stolen, ready my gunship and meet me on the roof!!” The woman hissed as she looked around at the piles of burnt arms and ammunition. “We are going hunting!!”

**

The three women dived down towards the ground, their altitude dropping at a fearful rate, the employees car-park getting closer and closer until, seconds before impact White Willow threw a capsule on the ground, a thick gel cushion appearing to soften their fall.

“Well isn't this pleasant.” Tiger Moth stated as she checked the canister before looking around at the various super cars spread around them before sliding into a parked Bentley Continental “Ladies shall we go?” She asked sweetly as the others slid inside. After hot wiring the engine, the car slid out of the space it was parked in and headed towards the street. “Once this is in Cheshire’s hand we will see which way the balance of power shifts in.”

“Yeah a lot of people are thinking that Vertigo is becoming too powerful. It’s causing a schism within the ranks, particularly between Dr Polaris and Merlyn, the money is on them to kick off within the month.” Blitzkrieg sighed as Tiger Moth crashed the car through the parking barrier and onto the road, the Bentley now blending in with the throng of exotic cars owned by the rich and powerful occupants of the city. It was only when the car turned onto the coastal highway towards the marina, that the occupants noticed the airborne contact tailing them.

“What is that?” Tiger Moth asked as she looked at the armoured figure chasing them.

“The Scarab, speed up.” White Willow whispered as three beams of light lanced out of the pursuers gauntlet, their impact chewing holed out of the roar and causing explosions of red hot tar to shower the vehicles driving along.

“Who?” Tiger Moth asked as she slammed her foot down on the gas pedal.

“She’s the Daughter of Maat.” White Willow explained. “Leader of the Covenant of Ka.” She added as a magnetically accelerated round tore through the boot of the car. “She will kill us for certain.”

“Pessimist.” Blitzkrieg muttered as she turned around on the back seat and placed her hand on the roof of the car, an explosive force turning the top into shrapnel, the razor sharp projectiles bouncing off Scarab’s armour. “Let’s see if you can take this!?” She snarled as a beam of explosive energy lanced out of her hands and into Scarab’s chest, the blast causing her to drop down closer to the road, her lithe form weaving in and out of the traffic.

“Okay Willow any ideas since you know about her?” Tiger Moth asked as the sound of rotor blades could be heard from above. “Oh what…now?!” She gasped as a helicopter gunship drew level with them, repelling lines snaking down into the now roofless car. Fast roping down was a woman dressed in a flamboyant long skirt and top followed by a figure wearing ballistic armour emblazoned with a SWAK set against a heart background.

“Give us the canister!!” The woman in the skirt ordered as she levelled a shotgun at the car. With a feral snarl White Willow lunged at her, the machete flashing as she cut through the repelling line causing the woman to land rump first into the boot. Before the new arrival could recover the car swerved right, as a shower of burning tar erupted in front of them, the guard still attached to the helicopter detaching from her line to land in the car with a thud, combat knives already drawn ready to fight.

“Okay someone has to get out now!” Tiger Moth yelled as Blitzkrieg ducked under the new attacker’s swipe, the heart indented combat knives missing her by inches. Behind her the first attacker got to her feet and fired a few unsteady shots, the swerving motion of the car throwing off her aim.

“Uh here did that helicopter go?” Blitzkrieg asked as White Willow blocked a lunge from the knife wielding attack.

“No idea but the Scarab is still perusing us.” Tiger Moth answered as a rocket flew past the car and landed on the bridge half a kilometre off the road. “Wait I see it, and is that… SNIPER GET DOWN!!” She bellowed causing all the combatants to throw themselves down onto the floor as the round slashed through the windscreen and embedded in the front passenger seat.

“Boss you do realise we are in here too right?” The pistol wielding attacker asked as she fired a shot at Blitzkrieg, the round being intercepted by a blast of energy.

“Probably.” The knife wielding attacker announced as White Willow forced her into a defensive block before both of them were forced to disengage as another magnetically propelled round slashed past them into the car’s dashboard.

“Oh no everyone hold on!!” Tiger Moth yelled as the Bentley reached the bridge, a tide of gleaming caltrops littering the road around a rocket impact mark. Slamming on the brakes Tiger Moth felt the car skid, flip and slam into something hard with enough force to send everyone but her flying. Groaning she pusher the airbag out the way and cut through the seat belt and dropped onto the road before pulling herself out. “Where is…the…canister?” She groaned as the sniper from the helicopter repelled down onto the bridge.

“Got it.” Blitzkrieg groaned as she crawled towards it only for a massive hand to reach down and pick it up before she could reach it.

“Sorrow this is Knockout.” The red headed woman announced as the Scarab hovered overhead, tracking lasers painting the thieves and guards, a red tinted reminder of what would happen if any of them tried moving. “We have the package.” She added as White Willow leapt at her, the machete biting into the larger woman’s shoulder, the canister dropping to the floor as her opponent backhanded her away.

“All of you.” The sniper ordered, “That canister is the property of Soze Munitions.” For a few seconds there was silence before gunfire, explosions and screams filled the air as every woman standing made a grab for the canister. Darting through the bullet storm Tiger Moth saw the Scarab touch down and grab the prize only for Cobalt to come slashing in at her, the knives meeting the armour and slashing through the suit’s thrusters. Barrelling through Tiger Moth grabbed it and ran towards the sniper, two high calibre rounds slashing past her before a third knocked the object out of her hand and sent it rolling towards where Blitzkrieg and Knockout were brawling with each other.

“Bang, bang,” Blitzkrieg cried as she threw explosive punch after explosive punch at her opponent, each blow leaving a stinging welt“I bet you like beating up smaller women!!”

“I don’t dislike it.” Knockout answered as she slammed Blitzkrieg in the chest, the blow sending her flailing a good fifteen foot backwards. “I much prefer this however.” She added as she strode towards the canister, only to feel a new sting as a sniper round slashed through her torso. Turning she saw the sniper remove a new ammo clip from bandolier slung across her dress and slot it into the rifle.

“Next person to touch that canister is dead!” She shouted as the Persian retrieved the prize. Before she could take even three steps however White Willow charged in, blade raised ready to take the woman’s head. Throwing the canister to Cobalt, the Persian stood her ground before sliding back and tripping White Willow, her foes machete falling to the floor as the guard emptied her magazine into her attacker’s throat.

“WHITE WILLOW!!” Tiger Moth screamed as she dodged a blast from the Scarab and ran towards her fallen comrade, now no longer caring as Cobalt ran towards where the helicopter was hovering. “Willow are you…” She gasped as a shrill buzzing sound filled the air and a new combatant snatched the canister from Cobalt’s hands.

“I’m fine, I can keep going.” White Willow coughed as she got to her feet slowly, a throwing knife in her hands. “You have to get the canister as soon as I take down Killer Wasp.”

“I’m ready.” Tiger Moth answered as a gunshot rang out and a sniper round slashed through the Wasp’s arm, the severed limb and the canister slamming down onto the road. Sprinting forwards Tiger Moth reached out to grab the prize only to feel thick cable wrap around her hands as Scarab took to the air and dragged her away. Groaning the White Willow staggered forward as Knockout and Cobalt both stormed forwards, the later throwing one of her blades at the canister and causing it to spin out the way.

“Almost there.” She groaned as Blitzkrieg got to her feet behind her.

“If I can’t have it,” The Sniper yelled as the Persian fired shots up at Killer Wasp to prevent her from getting close to the canister, “then no-one can.” She added as Blitzkrieg got ready to fire a blast of energy up at the Scarab, only for the sniper round to slash through her leg and send her tumbling, the energy surging into the road and causing it to crack open and collapse, the falling debris sweeping up everyone and sending them tumbling onto the beach.

“The canister!!” Tiger Moth yelled as the sniper fired again, the bullet slashing through the prize, thick green gas leaking out the bullet holes as the female fighters hit the beach, battered and bruised by the land slip.

“There’s no point staying here now the canister is destroyed. Scarab give us an exit!” Knockout yelled as the armoured mercenary discharged a ring of smoke from her armour.

“Looks like your fellow thieves have left you.” The Persian purred as she moved through the fog and loomed above Tiger Moth, as Cobalt moved in on Blitzkrieg. “You are lucky that Sosa Munitions supplies the Legion or you would be dead now, but for your own sake make sure neither I nor Director Sosa see you again.” She added as she rejoined Cobalt and headed towards the helicopter, the sniper already onboard. “Next time you won't be so lucky.”

Dude, it's because she's a nazi! Nazis are always great comic-book villains.
