Justice Heroes Elite
CHP 27: Unknown attackers
Finally finishing up what they had set out to do, the secret agency returns back to base with all their equipment. Having both cyborgs on their side made things run even smoother. The main man of the organization congratulates his men as they all enter into the large space.
"Good work everyone, I'm glad to see you all made it back in one piece. Now we can get ready for our next set of business."
Walking in front of the group, Sektor hands the chip of information over to the main guy in charge who grins! Taking the information from the cyborg the certain individual enters into a back room.
Traveling at full acceleration within the bat mobile, something grabs the attention of the Dark Knight; an enormous light of energy forms in the area of down town Gotham. Not even thinking about it, Batman re routs heading in that exact direction. Out some distance away within another city, Tony Stark sits within his main office looking over some papers. Looking up from the papers, Virginia Pepper enters into the room approaching him.
"It's good to see you're here, I was just about to close up shop. Could you do the honor of finishing documenting all of this?"
"Yeah sure thing, but there is someone out in the front room who would like to speak with you." Pepper tells.
Narrowing his eyes he wonders who'd want to speak with him at this time of night. Fixing his collar Tony exits out of the room a bit surprised to see who awaits him sitting over on the sofa. If he can recall this is non other than Klint Gersayer the billionaire. It couldn't have been more than a week ago that Emma Frost had given him a visit concerning this man. In fact her intentions were to try and get him to agree with a possible merger between Stark industries and Zelsztech.
"I'm sure I already know why you're here, and the answer is no; but thanks for stopping by."
Moving forward Klint comes up behind Tony placing a hand over his shoulder.
"You sure are quick to terminate the suggestion, just think about how both our companies could benefit from this. At least give it a little more thought Mr. Stark."
Walking from the owner of Zelsztech Tony puts a finger to his chin, knowing he's already made up his mind. In most cases when he has done so it doesn't change, and it is no different in this situation.
"I'm guessing you know your way to the exit, and if not I can get miss Pepper to escort you out."
"That won't be necessary Mr Stark. Thanks for your time, but if you do however change your mind; here's my card." Klint tells setting it over the table top.
Recovering his jacket which hangs over a racket, he exits out of the building and into a limousine which awaits him. Back in the city of Gotham Batman arrives to the area of suspicion, eyes growing in size at what he observes roaming around! Three of them to be precise, one shooting flames from it's mouth down onto the several civilians!
"What in the world!" Is all that comes out of his mouth.
All of them stand close to thirty feet tall, with skin made of rich tough golden like scales! He's never seen anything like this in all his years of patrolling alone, or even with the Justice League; this is an entire new species which he's never encountered before. But there is a chance these could be some type of robots. Regardless of what or where they came from, the three beasts are dangerous and must be taken out ASAP. Tuning in to the police radio, the capped crusader finds out the swat as well as the air force are on their way. It's funny how quickly the government can find trouble, but than again being as massive as these three it's almost as simple as flying a kite.
"Batman come in...this is Red Robin. I'm picking up some unique signals within your location on radar; what's going on?"
"I'll get back to you once the situation is stable, Batman out."
Hopping out of the Batmobile, it is nothing but chaos with over twenty bodies laying out around the street with flames surrounding the area. But the screams of people fleeing, is something he's grown accustomed to over the years. It is the music and or tune of Gotham, as sad as that may be. Obviously talking to them will be ineffective, meaning getting right to the point is the only option. Pulling out two explosive batarangs, he has no idea how powerful these things are; but he'll find out soon enough. The communications piece within his ear begins to beep again.
"Hey Batman, it's Green Lantern. Is everything ok down there? I'm picking up some strange live shapes within your vicinity." Green Lantern tells standing within the JL watch tower.
Throwing one of the batarangs forward, bat's just ignores the message from GL. Now is not the time to talk, besides he should be able to take care of these creatures on his own. The batarang connects with the flesh of the closes of them, but does nothing. With unexpected speed the unknown life form dashes forward grabbing Batman by his neck throwing him into a nearby building shattering the glass on impact!
"What the hell! Is that Batman?" A civilian says sitting within his seat enjoying his ice cream cone.
Everyone within the diner known as "Icy sweet fudges craze" look over at the dark knight who stands to his feet.
"You all need to get out of here now, don't you realize it isn't safe? Just look outside!"
Not saying another word Batman exits through the front entrance, the damage done to the Diner's window is nothing compared to what these things will do if they aren't stopped soon. While two of them destroy the surrounding buildings, the other of them lifts a vehicle throwing it into another which explodes on impact taking out a civilian who was passing by! Running out Batman shoots out his grapple gun wrapping the wiring around this particular beast's neck. But with it's incredible strength he is pulled directly at it being knocked into the middle of the street feeling a strike of pain through his back. Maybe retreating is his best option for the moment, and return when he's properly equipped to take them on. Extending and opening it's wide mouth, the life form charges a large amount of energy! Getting up to his feet Batman drops down just in time as a speeding object comes out of nowhere smashing into the head of the 30 ft creature sending it in the other direction several yards onto it's side, the object working sort of like a boomerang returning to it's wielder/owner.
"You shouldn't be out here civilian, this is no job for a mortal. I'll get you somewhere safe."
Looking up Batman stands glancing over this individual. What stands out most is the choice of clothing and massive hammer he carries.
"And you're?" Bats asks.
"Thor at your service, but the questions can wait."
Flying over at high speeds, Batman is grabbed by his wrist and flown up to the top of a building.
"Lets get one thing straight, I'm no civilian; and second...what are you doing in my city?" He asks with the bat glare.
Rubbing at his chin Thor isn't sure exactly what this strange mortal is talking about? His city, now you've got to be kidding. Well unless he's secretly the governor; but dealing with his share of masked men, that is doubtful. Boy has the merging of the two earths made life that much more complicated.
"Who do you work for?" Batman asks.
Why is he even still here, down below there are three unknown enemies attacking and destroying everything in their paths. But maybe it is best he answers a few questions, but it'll have to be quick.
"I'm a member of the Avengers, which you may have heard about or not."
Right away a bit of understanding comes to that of the worlds greatest detective. Moving forward Batman puts out a hand in front of the Avenger. This action confuses Thor further, what is this all about.
"I don't know if you were informed, but I worked side by side with a couple of your colleagues a few months back. It's only fair I return the favor...I'm a member of the Justice League and am known as Batman."
Hearing this brings nothing but soothe to Thor; he doesn't recall being told about this individual by any of his teammates. Truth be told he heard about the myth of Batman close to a month in of the merger; but that can now be put to rest, seeing as he stands before him. Aside from that almost every day, either on television or in public the Avengers are always being compared to this Justice League! Smiling he finally shakes the hand of Batman.
"I've got questions, and I'm sure you may have some yourself; but we need to put a stop to this threat." Thor tells.
"Agreed, you go ahead I'll join you shortly."
Nodding Thor leaps off the building flying down toward the three creatures. Just his luck, sooner or later these outside heroes from the other earth will have to learn their boundaries. This is the city of the bat, and if he is to keep the criminals of Gotham in check; not just anyone can come flying in here, whenever he or she feels it necessary. Question is, how did this Thor person get here so fast? True maybe the event is being broadcasts on T.V., but something just isn't adding up.
"Bat jet initiate." Batman says pressing at something with on his right glove.
Down below Thor dodges two different fire blasts from one of the beasts hammering it into the ground. Lifting a damaged sports vehicle Thor throws it into another of them who just catches and crushes the car easily. Lifting the Mjolnir Hammer toward the sky, Thor hovers into the air with thunder and lightning striking down onto the hammer! Zooming forward with great speed he bashes the hammer into the closes creature's face sending it back in the other direction close to 200 yds into a building!
"I don't know who sent you predators, but I know where you're going!" Thor yells out spinning the hammer picking up velocity.
Dark gray clouds begin forming within the area, rain coming down hard with thunder and lightning all around. Batman can't help but cross his arms. This Thor person really is something else, he's never seen anyone quite like him before.
"Hey excuse me sir, I might be able to help."
Thor looks over his shoulder, stunned to see a little boy approaching him. Right away he stops what he is doing turning to the child. At the same time, the creature which was knocked into the ground pulls itself out, while the other which was put through a building does the same.
"Look kid you need to get out of here, this isn't a place for kids. Get to safety!" Thor yells out.
"Could you back up a little bit." The kid replies.
What is wrong with this person, is he trying to sign his own death certificate? Life can be tough sometimes, but there are less painful ways to go. Plus whatever problem he has should be easy to fix, mainly due to his youth. Deciding to ignore the boy Thor turns his attention back to the massive attackers walking forward.
Hearing the sound of thunder and lightning forming together, Thor looks back over his shoulder to see it strike the kid directly! Just as he runs forward toward the boy he stops in place with wide eyes!
"What sort of Treachery?"
"There is no such thing as that here. As I was saying, you might need my help. Before you ask I'm Captain Marvel, but introductions can wait for later."
Showing off his great speed Captain Marvel speeds forward taking flight punching one of them many ft into the air. Standing in place Thor observes this and can see he's got a formidable ally at his side. Lifting his hammer a smirk grows on his face as he joins in flying forward to attack another of them. Still observing from the building top, Batman now knows there is something going on. Captain Marvel wouldn't just appear in Gotham randomly like this. Looking out in the distance, he relaxes a bit to see the bat jet approaching.
"After this is over, there are going to be some questions that need answering."
As it comes in closer Batman uses his grapple gun as a way of quickly entering into the vehicle. Taking over the controls he re directs the flying vehicle shooting down a few ice missiles which connect with two of the enemies.
"Oh good it's Batman, the more help the better." Captain Marvel says grabbing one of them by it's arm swinging it around throwing it into another of them which has a hard time moving because of the ice.
Out in the distance the military chief calls off his men to stand their ground.
"It looks like the Justice League and whoever else have this particular situation contained. We're however needed in the city of Atlanta; we must stay in constant communication with the unit over there."
Swinging his hammer in circles Thor knocks one of them down which flips back up spitting some type of acid at him which he dodges. Considering the size of these things it's impressive how fast they're able to move around. Grabbing the neck of Captain Marvel one of them slams him down onto the ground. He is stomped a few times over before he is able to grab it's foot throwing it off balance, flying up and punching it into a parked Pepsi truck. Shooting out wiring from the bat jet into the back of an enemy. Batman electrifies the beast many times over before ejecting the wiring from the vehicle. Out of nowhere within the sky is a flash of light with yet another familiar face showing up.
"Looks like I made it in time."
"Good to see you Green Lantern, your help will be greatly appreciated." Captain Marvel says.
Judging by his entrance into the city, both Marvel and Batman conclude GL used the Justice League teleport system. Using the Ring GL creates a hand grabbing one of them by the neck throwing swinging it around before smashing it face first into the cement turf. While on the ground Green Lantern creates a huge monster truck smashing it into the side of the creature's head. Spinning his hammer at high speeds Thor whacks another of them across the chest knocking it back in the other direction. Just then the same familiar light which Batman had seen earlier returns, being the thing which in deed lead him to this part of the city. Everyone is blinded for little over a second, but when they regain their sight the creatures are gone!
"Ok now that is just weird, what happened to them? Something that size can't move that fast?" Green Lantern says hovering down to the ground.
Both Thor and Captain Marvel join him, all three stunned by what just happened. Putting the bat plane onto auto pilot setting it's destination to the bat cave, Batman jumps out of the jet gliding down in front of the others.
"Batman do you have any clue what just happened?" Green Lantern asks.
Just as Batman is about to speak, people begin appearing out of nowhere cheering the four of them on. Seeing this as a distraction, Batman signals for them all to follow him grappling himself upward onto the top of a building. The others follow flying up to his side.
"I'm guessing those things were sent by someone who was watching, and once they saw we had the upper hand they beamed them away. But that is only an observation, I'll have to look more into this." Batman informs.
"I guess now that things are a bit more under control, I should let you all know there are more of those things. In fact there was a spotting of them in Japan, Australia, Canada, Mexico, and even different parts here in the U.S. But don't worry their are fellow Leaguers and proper authorities taking care of it."
Green Lantern explains to them what he had been observing from the Watch Tower, and when Batman didn't reply, he figured he was in a scuffle with a group of those things; which is why he teleported himself down to Gotham. Thor confirms this; he himself had already encountered a few of them a few hours earlier in the city of South Dakota. Keeping a close eye on the news station he was able to know exactly when those things would enter into another city. With all the other appearances they were making around the globe, you knew it wouldn't be long before they invaded another city. Receiving this information from Thor and GL, both Captain Marvel and Batman are surprised they didn't know about any of this sooner.
"Ok so they both have clean cut reasons for how they ended up here, but what were you doing in Gotham Marvel?" Batman asks.
Just as the others, Captain Marvel had his reason for entering into Gotham. Finishing up a mission just outside of Gotham, he too saw the massive light; it was just a little to suspicious to be unchecked. Pulling a device from his utility belt, Batman sets the batmobile to return to the cave. The four of them stand in place discussing the unusual events.
Sitting within the front room of their new home is seven year old Daisy Hendeers. Hopefully this will finally be it, a place that they can all call home. Maybe she'll finally get a set of friends which aren't short term. It is passed 2 o'clock in the morning, but she can't fall asleep; which is why she left her room. Ever since they ate out at the restaurant earlier in the day, she seems to have extra energy. Hearing a certain sound coming from outside, she gets excited!
"Hey mom it's the ice cre.." But she stops in mid sentence.
Realizing the time of night it is, probably would only get her into trouble if she were to wake her mother. Remembering the dollar her brother had given her earlier, she smiles running over to retrieve it. Moving slowly she walks up to the front door exiting out slowly and quietly. Waving she runs over toward the ice cream truck driver who stops.
"How ya doin Ice cream man, I'd like to get something."
Lifting his bakery hat, the ice cream man scratches at his orange Burgundy hair.
"Go ahead kid, tell me what you'd like?" He asks with a wide grin.
Many hours pass with the rising of the sun, all creature's which were present around the globe mysteriously disappeared just as the set in Gotham. Opening his eyes to the sunlight which comes through the window, Peter stretches but stops feeling movement on his lower chest. Looking down he is surprised to see MJ fast asleep, with her head resting on his chest. Guess he must have accidentally fell asleep while they were cuddling, he truly had every intention of returning home last night. Moving over slowly he lifts her head from him setting it on a pillow. Standing to his feet he stretches walking toward the door.
"Aren't you goanna give me a good morning kiss?"
Stopping in place Peter bites at his lower lip, seriously he was under the impression she was a deep sleeper. Well that's how it was when they were together.
"Good Morning MJ, it was nice spending some time with you last night. But I've really got a schedule to keep, but we should definitely do this again some time." Peter replies.
Turning for the door again he stops hearing her call out his name. Looking back she asks for him to come back to her side. Not arguing he does as he is asked walking back over. Bringing his face down to hers Mary Jane presses her lips up against his. Strangely he finds himself kissing her back, deepening the kiss MJ opens her mouth entering her tongue into Peter's! Panicking a bit he breaks the kiss! If he can recall, both of them agreed to just remain friends.
"What's wrong tiger...cat catch your tongue?" She asks with a giggle.
"Oh no it's nothing like that, it's just I've got a lot to do. But I promise I'll call you later."
Standing Peter walks over to the door waving back at MJ who blows him a kiss causing him to have butterflies. Opening the door he closes it behind him walking down the stairs and exiting the premises.
"Hello sir welcome to the Blossom Esplanade, may I ask where your partner is?"
"Partner; what exactly do you mean by that?"
"You can't enter unless you have a date, if you don't have one we can easily have a blind date set up for you."
Oh isn't this just great, just when he thought he planned for it all. He must think up something fast, and it had better be a good one.
"Oh no that won't be necessary, she's already inside waiting for me."
The gentleman standing behind the glass window is a bit skeptical, but decides not to ask anymore questions accepting this person's payment opening the gate with the click of a button. The individual enters through wearing a light brown trench coat, dark brown gloves and hat to match; as well as a pair of shades.
"Now that I've got in, I need to figure out which area's Lois Lane had visited when in here. This here might not be much, but it's better than nothing."
Placing a hand into his left pocket Bruce pulls out a letter Lois had wrote month's ago, but what is important is her finger prints are all over it. Bringing a gloved hand up to the shades, he presses on a button which as a result scans the prints through the dark shade's lenses. After the scan is complete he places the letter back in jacket's side pocket. After the amount of time which has passed, any prints she may have left behind have probably been wiped clean. But you just never know, plus he hasn't got a lot to work with. Just as he begins to walk forward Two men approach him from both sides.
"If it is fine by you sir we'd like to see some ID, no offence but the way you're dressed doesn't seem like you're here with anyone. If I had to guess I'd say you are some type of detective." One of them says.
Oh great, now he has got himself into yet another hole!
"Oh thank goodness I finally found you, I told you to meet me over at the east end sweetie."
Locking arms with Bruce this woman walks him away from the two men, who just forget about questioning him any further Once out of sight she leads them over to a bench where she takes a seat.
"So let me guess, Superman sent you to keep an eye on me didn't he? Look Kara I appreciate the sa.." Looking down on her she frowns, "I mean Karen, sorry about that. If you'd like you can leave at any time, I've got some work to do."
Rolling her eyes Power Girl can't believe how un grateful this man can be, she basically saved his ass back there. It's no wonder he's a complete loner, and it'll stay that way if he doesn't lighten up a bit.
"Look I know you want to go at this alone, but without me you're going to get kicked out of here sooner rather than later. Don't worry I won't get in your way, plus lets not forget I'm pretty good with solving mysterious as well."
"That's fine by me, but lets get to work and stay on task."
Looking up she is definitely surprised he agreed to let her stay around, but that was a positive on his part. Standing she walks past him signaling for him to follow. Moving forward he does just that keeping pace. While walking his eyes seem to wonder downward catching a glimpse of her butt in the tight blue jeans, but he looks away just as quickly trying to stay professional.
"Hold on a sec. Do you have any clue where the security room is located?" Bruce reaches out grabbing her by the wrist.
Looking up she thinks about it, but remembers seeing a sign which read "Employees only".
"I think I might have an idea, just follow me this way."
After some time of looking around they find the place. But before entering, Bruce makes sure no one has their eyes on them, and checks for any possible alarms which may go off upon them entering. After clearing that up, both enter.
"So what exactly are we looking for?" Karen/Power Girl asks.
"I'll let you know if I find what I'm looking for."
Using the shades to his advantage, he scans the area trying to find anything. Looking over at Karen he asks her to see if she can find any of their past security footage, they must have backups somewhere. Continuing to look around; his heart rate speeds up! Just outside the room down the hall , both can hear footsteps! Stopping what they're doing, both look at the other!
"Karen can you get us out of here?"
Looking around she gives off a nervous smile shaking her head back and forth.
"When they enter we can just fight them off; unless you've got a better idea Mr. detective."
"I'm not sure, but fighting against them is not an option. I'm out of uniform, and that wouldn't look good on my resume as Bruce Wayne; people might start thinking."
Both just stand in place silent, trying to think up something fast; it is then that a grin appears on the face of Karen. Walking over in front of Bruce.
"This may not get us out of here, but it'll make things a lot easier. After all this is a park dedicated to lovers, I'm sure they'll understand."
Hearing her words almost scares Bruce, what exactly does she mean? Reaching out she pulls the shades from his eyes removing his hat as well.
"Take off the jacket." She tells.
Raising an eye brow he does as he is told removing the gloves as well. He isn't sure what exactly her plan is, but hopefully it'll work. Throwing his stuff off to the side she begins removing his shirt, in which he put his hands over hers to try and stop this action. Karen shakes her head moving his hands off to the side re assuring him to trust her. Moving back he removes his shirt to reveal a black tank top, dropping the clothing to the ground.
"Now what?" He asks with obvious agitation.
"You may or may not agree with what we're about to do, but remember you're the one who got us into this mess."
Walking forward she runs her finger over his rock hard abs, looking him in the eyes. Bringing her arms up, she wraps them around his neck bringing her lips to his. He is caught totally off guard but decides to play along kissing her back. Breaking the kiss she leads him over to a sofa located within the room commanding him to lay down; doing as he is told he realizes what her thought process is. Once they're found, they'll still suffer consequences but it won't be as severe. Kicking off her shoes she removes her shirt setting it down, getting on top of Bruce.
"When they find us, I'll do the talking."
Re positioning a bit she lowers herself down onto him bringing her lips back to his. Truly neither of them can believe they're even doing this; and it'll have to stay between them, no one else must ever know! If this had been Diana or Selina, it would have been a lot less awkward for him. Feeling her tongue enter into his mouth really brings him into the moment, but both truly wish it hadn't come down to this.
Within the Nether Realm, Quan Chi runs around teleporting himself to a specific chamber. When inside he takes a knee bowing down to someone.
"It's good to see you Lord Shinnok, I've come with some news that is neither good or bad. Soon we should be able to get you back to Earth Realm, whenever Baraka is able to steal the orb from this woman."
Quan Chi goes into detail while Shinnok just stands in place listening. Without the orb there is still a chance he'll be able to return to Earth Realm, but it'll be a lot tougher and take even more time. Shinnok doesn't mind the wait, after all he'll be the ruler of all realms soon enough.
