Continued from here part 5

Magra A small moon orbiting a dead world on the edge of the Kree Empire.

The group appeared in the middle of an open air Bazaar. There were many people from many different races. The Traveler waved toward the crowd, "Welcome to Magra, where you can buy anything from this quadrant of the Universe, legal or otherwise."

He then put his hand on his forehead and closed his eyes, "I think what we're looking for is that way."

Casey started to step forward, "I think a smaller group would work better. Less likely to draw attention that way."

He then reached into his pocket and pulled out three octagonal cards with a blue metallic strip at the bottom, "How about you three have yourselves a shopping spree." He then looked to Barry, "You're coming with me Smokey."

He then handed them the cards but Casey gave it a wary look, "Don't you think this is a bad time to go shopping."

He sighed, "A seventeen year old girl holding a credit card with no limit doesn't want to go shopping? If you can't trust 1980s movie stereotypes what can you trust?"

Suddenly Barry and the Traveler were gone leaving the rest in the crowd. Casey rolled her eyes, "Couldn't we have got roped into this with a rational cosmic entity?"

Mary shrugged, "They may all be like that."

"What a terrifying thought."

***

Barry found himself alone on the other side of the moon outside a village. He looked around for the Traveler then sighed, "I'm really starting to hate that guy."

He walked into the village and noticed people running into their houses and locking down. He stopped one of the panicked villagers, "What's going on?"

The humanoid man looked at him on the verge of tears, "The Brood are coming."

***

Back at the Bazaar the rest of the group wandered by the shops looking things over when Mary spoke up, "Is this starting to seem like a pattern to anyone else? We go to the Aerie, Casey ends up teleported into a prison riot, we go to Raad-La and Steve gets zapped to the space Dali llama."

Steve cut her off, "Hey, that guy was cool."

She rolled her eyes as she continued, "And now we're in the middle of a weird alien shopping mall while one of us is separated from the group."

Casey nodded, "Okay, its weird but who says its on purpose? I doubt some space god would scoop us up just to screw with us."

Steve interrupted, "The Surfer said he always takes you where you need to be. Maybe we just needed to be where we went. Not sure about Casey but I was about to lose my mind freaking out about everything, now I feel alright."

Casey shrugged, "I kicked the crap out of some rock monsters and some super alien guy but I feel about the same."

***

Barry was confused but nervous as the streets cleared. Suddenly creatures that appeared to be giant insects began dropping down on the village. It wasn't long before they noticed him, he started to run but was surrounded. A spiked tail suddenly shot through him and stabbed one in front of him in the face. He looked down on it and noticed his torso had become smoke and he grinned, "Awesome, didn't even think about it."

He then turned the rest of his body into a smoke cloud and surrounded the Brood around him, he then felt strange as his smoke began to change color as the Brood began struggling to breathe. As they dropped he pulled away and solidified. He then noticed he was a few feet taller in solid form.

The other Brood came rushing at him when an idea occurred to him. He turned back to smoke and spread out as much as he could before solidifying as a gigantic human form, he then stomped on the Brood like they were ants and plucked a few off houses and squished them between his finger.

He shrunk back to his regular form with a smile, "Sweet."

The surviving Brood looked at him and began to gather together intending to take him down as one. He crouched down and became a tiny wisp of smoke as the ran over the area. They seemed confused as he wandered out from under them in a much smaller form.

The were surprised when the silvery smoke returned and caused them all to choke. He then returned to normal as people began to come out of their houses. He then looked to his feet and found what he'd come here looking for, "That seems a bit coincidental."

A hand then snatched the device, "Thank you."

He turned to see the Traveler, "Where the stark have you been?"

"I'm a busy guy."

He started to say something but suddenly found himself in front of the rest of the group trying on some alien clothing. He stopped at Mary wearing a strange hat, "What the hell is on your head?"
