DC stood next to Gambler and watched as the demon known as Ghast tore the man apart. It came back jaw dripping with blood and tissue a slight smirk arose on Darkchilds face. He had changed over the years his appearnce more than anything. His metallic form was always apparent, it rarely if ever was ever "turned off", he excused himself for a moment and went to his room in the mansion. When he emerged from the room and came back to the group he was dressed in black with a long black cloak floating behind him as he walked. He had given himself a hair cut, after being in that iceland tundra for months he looked like a caveman and now his handsome look was back. A flot top hair cut and a new wardrobe and he was ready to be the old DC again.

Sitting down rather than standing beside the others he asked again. "Gambler why the fish boy, and when do we set forth our attack."

Sparda was leaned back in his chair, his feet on the wide desk in front of him. He didn't really feel anything at the moment-he hadn't received any new information from anyone. His cameras positioned around the jungle hadn't spotted anyone trying to cross.

Sparda sat in a one man, one room outpost lying on a branch of the Amazon River. If anyone tried to move further into Brazil, they would have to cross his path, and he would know.

But with communications down, there was little point to him being here. He couldn't notify anyone if someone did try to cross.

He leaned forward and now sat halfways on the edge of the desk. He twirled his sword edge off the floor, created small wood chips. Akira was currently.....well, probably not in Brazil. The man had a habit of moving around too much. He had positioned Sparda here, knowing that he would do the job well.

Sparda slid off the desk and moved to the side to grab his coat. With no one ever coming around to check up on him-except for the occasional delivery of food and water.....and maybe a movie or two-Sparda took the liberty to model the one room after his shop. A drum set lay against the wall, beside it a set of electric guitars and a few amps. Directly across from that on the opposite wall lay a pool table, and in the two corners of the room closest to the door lay a small gym area and a jukebox.

Encased in one of the walls were numerous screens and monitors. The cameras. As usual, nothing moved.

Sparda flipped his coat around and quickly slipped it on. He sheathed his sword behind his back, and holstered his pistols also. You could never be too careful.

He closed his eyes for a moment, and the lower portion of his arms started to cover in wispy darkness, like dense smoke. He brought one of the arms up, and slammed it palm open into the floor.

Darkness enveloped him, and squeezed. He found it hard to breathe for a few moments, until it was bright again, and he fell three meters to land on dusty ground. He opened his eyes and breathed regularly.

Ahead of him lay a field of grass and dust, and more prominently, a fort made of the earth itself.

"Well, it's about time", he said aloud to himself. Golem had finally built the fort up and loaded it.

Sparda moved forward to the front gate. He wanted to see if Golem had any communications running yet.

Magneto felt the mans presense before he entered old habits die hard. When no one was around Magneto was almost always reaching out with his mind reading peoples thoughts sensing their presence. He looked at the man as he enter he was new to the Vine the job might be to much for other new recruit but this one was different he felt something about him.

Magneto stood up and motioned towards a seat across from the one he currently sat at.

"Sit down Resonate it has come to my attention that someone like your self gets bored easy and perhaps guard duty is not the best way to but you to use."

Magneto waited for the man to sit before he did so himself. He pushed over a file Ultimates was written on the outside of it.

The Colombian air was thick with humidity. From the base, there was no trace of civilization in a 200 mile radius. If anyone was to come they would have a major fight on their hands. The 2,000 men and women soldiers in the remote outpost were some of the best the Ultimates had to offer. Each one of them was armed to the teeth and had plenty of helicopters, jeeps, and other fast attack vehicles. But surprisingly they still would not last very long.

The might of the entire VV army would have to go through them. They had the only road bridge across the Mediane River for 50 miles. This place had become their home, and most likely, it would also become their tomb. The VV and Hellfire Club weren’t the only enemies of the soldiers in the base. The environment had caused morale and combat readiness to drop dramatically. There were victims of heat stroke, trench foot, and jungle rot every day, leaving only about 800 men with the ability to stand and fight a good fight. If they had to, they could retreat. They knew ways in and out of the jungle like the back of their hand. The last stand for the Ultimates was to be Fort Stanley in the Falkland Islands. Chameleone’s long time friend and ally, Copy, had been put in charge of the preparation of the base, but Chameleone and his men would have to hold out long enough to make sure it was finished, even if it meant their lives.

The sadistic members of the Hellfire Club watched as Ghast dismembered the poor KGB agent. The hellhound returned to Gambler’s side, the smell of death and the scent of death still lingered in the air.

Gambler why the fish boy, and when do we set forth our attack. asked Darkchild.

Turning to face his friend, he spoke, “Dee answer is quite simple. Revenge. The guppy is mine. But tis time we start dis little party no?” I want you to take a force of no less then 10,000 infantry and invade Asia, Renegade will be your second in command. Burn it Darkchild, burn it all.”

Gambler still held Nina’s necklace in his hand. Slowly he put it in his pocket and smiled,

“Sorry Chere, but Ghast needs some fresh air.”

Making his way upstairs, Gambler began to remove his bandages. A glass case stood next to his dresser. A very special suit hung in the case, it had been crafted during the time when he led the Vine Villains. It was worn at one time as a sign of respect, but as the crimson cape was flung over his shoulders, it was now worn as a sign of defiance.

“You ready to go on a little trip?” asked Gambler, as he patted Ghast on the head. “Lets go see an old friend shall we.”

Deeg's attention was waning, he had trecked 30 miles under the most cautious of conditions. He was nearing the Chameleone's base.

"They sure no how to keep the neighbors away."

Too many times had Deeg found false paths leading to dead ends, or a sheer drop into a ravine. But this time he knew he had the correct path into the base. This one just enough tracks to be real, and way to few to be noticeable. The entrance was well guarded. Slinking around the side, Deeg noticed another hidden entrance.

"This one is loaded I can tell, but no sense in wasting time, too much is happening. If I set off the alarm ahead of time, just maybe I can get Chameleone's attention."

Deeg went to work, making sure several of the security cameras caught his face on all sides of the base. Then he purposely the tripped the alarm, and waited for someone to bring him to Chameleone.

Golem saw Sparda enter the base on one of the monitors. "Ah, Sparda! Nice to see you," he said over the intercom. "Let me take you to the control room." Just then, a wall peeled back in front of Sparda. It revealed an elevator, leading to the main control. The room housed remote viewing of most of the continent, and remote feeds from multiple enemy outposts as well.

Golem sat in a large captain's chair, encased in rock and plugged into the Earth itself. "Sparda, as you can see, we have the world wired. What's our first plan of attack?"

Burn it, Burn it all

That one line was all he needed to hear. He made a fist in one hand and his eyes rolled into the back of his head, he was bringing all the voices within his head into one spot within his mind combining all of them. He closed his eyes and his body began to bulk but still his appearance stayed the same, he stood up and spoke few words "Yes my lord." the sound of his voice was as if 4 people were talking at once. He looks at Renegade and gestures for him to follow him out the main doors. They make their way down the steps and stand in front of a vast army of soldiers.

DC stands in front of the the army and he begins his speech that has been in wait for a long time "You all have been hand chosen for one thing, the Hellfire army. Each of you will give your lives for one thing TO BURN OUR ENEMIES TO THE GROUND! ARE YOU READY TO SET THIS WORLD ABLAZE!!"

The uproar of the men was almost addictive I see why Gambler enjoys his speeches in front of people DC lowers his arm and waves the soldiers to their take off points. DC looks up in the air and looks at Renegade "Hope you can fly." And as DC took off Renegade followed, the troops followed close behind the two Hellfire members. The grin on DC's face could be seen by everyone he screams out to the troops "BURN IT ALL!!" as they near Asia

"Child, your feelings for the master..." Wisp inquired. Nina stared at the wolf, her cheeks became a little pinker. "Whats that supposed to mean...?" she looked down at the mercurial waters they sat in. There were ripples, but nothing could be felt. It was like a liquid at perfect body temperature. She could see the reflection of herself and the matriarchal demoness.

"I have been meaning to discuss this with you for a time." The pale one looked at her accusingly. "I know that things have changed, you have been tainted by our influences...It was perhaps wrong of us to take you from your plane of exsistance."

Nina glared a little, "Are you going to berate me for changing? Its too late Wisp, the damage is done, you can't lament what happened when I was a teenager. You guys weren't even CONSIDERING consequences at that time. So too bad."

"I appreciate that child, but one can feel regret." Her fur bristled slightly.

"Did I walk us into the Devil's house? Is that what you're meaning...?" Nina almost looked like a child again, that naive honesty was back for an instant.

Ghast looked up at Gambler, he had been trying to groom himself inefficiently. The blood was matting his fur. He could feel the spiritual resonance from the silver in his master's pocket. Ghast whined a little, the prospect of going back didn't fill him with enthusiasm. The promise of a trip was good, it meant he'd be allowed to play a little while longer. He dared to think that under Gambler's rule, he'd get to be the dominant soul rather than Nina.

"Yeah, good to see you too rock-head", Spard replied as he stepped into the elevator. The wall peeled closed behind him, and the elevator started to hum as the energy coursed through it. He slid downwards suddenly and quickly, and soon reached the control room. Sparda stepped out.

The room was nothing like the rest of the fort. The main difference was that it didn't cloud your sense of smell with dust. It was clean and resembled a normal building. Sparda stepped to Golem, who was sitting in a large chair.

"Yeah, you guys got this place connected all right", Sparda said back to him.

"I came here for one reason-do you have any communications? Currently, all of mine are down. I suspect satellite interference from one of the......distinguished competition", Sparda finished. There were no battle plans.....yet. He wondered when they would come, though.

Intruder Alert! Intruder Alert! The alarms blared and flashed. This might be it, the VV assault. Chameleone looked at the computer. There was only one blip on the radar. *Why would the VV send only one man and to have him captured. It had to be a trap, an attempt to lure the men out of the base.

“Sir, the intruder is near the Northeast gate, we have 100 men ready to go out on a search and destroy mission.”

“No Major.” Said Chameleone calmly, “We are not going to risk the lives of 100 men for something that could be nothing more than a simple trap. I will go out myself, and see this intruder for what it really is.” With that, the green lizard mutant opened the gates and camouflaged himself as not to be seen by anyone. He was a ghost moving silently and quickly. He never used weapons, preferring to use his own natural strength, claws and tail. Danny noticed the intruder in the corner of his eye. It really was just one man. Chameleone quietly snuck up behind him, and put his hand over the man’s mouth, with his razor sharp claws at the intruder’s throat, ready to kill him quickly if needed. It was then that Danny noticed who the man was. It was his fellow Ultimate, Deeg. Chameleone turned him around, smiled, and hugged him. “Deeg it has been to long. We’re glad to have you here.” Cham said with joy.

AS they draw near to Asia DC lands down on the outer territory. For a moment he prays, that not all of his soldiers need to die. Behind DC stands all of his army all ready to give their lives so the pigs of the world wont survive. DC turns around "BURN THIS VILLAGE TO THE GROUND!" And as he says that the troops flow past him and into the town nothing is spared from their wrath. DC turns towards the village and knees then takes off as he crashes through the town dark matter and fire erupt from behind him causing anything near him to implode as he runs past it.

The villagers attempt to put up a fight but none survive their invasion. DC stands a lone man in his grasp he lifts him up into the air "Your entire nation will fall this day, and will burn for all eternity" And with saying that he sets the man on fire. Soon all that is left of the man and the village is ash and bones. DC waits for a retaliation he hasnt had this much fun in a very long time. He continues onward into Asia

"Good", Sparda simply said. He walked to the control centre's main computer, and typed in a few words. Instantly, the monitors changed their views to two separate places, and zoomed. Sparda stepped back.

One one of the monitors was Paragon's location under the ancient Aztec temple. All seemed secure. But the second location was far more interesting.

It zoomed, and from a remaining satellite camera, a huge battalion of soldiers ran through fields and drove in vehicles among other things. Heading it were two figures, leading the pack. Darkchild and Renegade Lantern.

While Sparda had no care for whoever the HFC was currently attacking, this signified other things. They were at war......and they would come for the Ultimates.

Resonate accepted his mission solemnly but sincerely. He knew that he was just the right man for the job, because no one knew of his membership. Hell, no one even knew who he was.

For his first mission, though, it seemed to be a big one.

"You can trust me" he said, as he walked out the door with the papers. This mission might not be so hard as he thought, really. He had already been conversing with one of the main members of the Ultimates for some time now:Sparda. He would gather any information that he coud on his whereabouts, and then the real mission would begin.

The private jet of the Hellfire Club soared across the sky, leaving a white cloud of exhaust trailing behind it. An uneasy feeling sat in the pit of Gambler’s stomach as he petted Ghast, who was curled up on the floor. An entire section of seats had been removed just to make room for the massive beast.

It had been years since the last time Magneto and Gambler spoke. It was truly a gamble seeking his aid in the upcoming war, but a necessary one. The Hellfire Club couldn’t afford to wage war on three fronts, even Gambler was not that arrogant.

Sir. There commanding us to land immediately or be shot down. What should w…… the pilot was interrupted once Gambler raised his hand.

“Tis okay Captain. Land.”

Magneto’s Vine Villains may have lost there grip on world domination, but they where still a force to be reckoned with. Two massive Sentinels flew on each side of the jet, escorting it to the landing strip in Las Vegas, home of the VV. No doubt Magneto took pleasure in using the once deadly robots as slaves. Before de-boarding the plane, Gambler reached into his pocket and removed Nina’s necklace.

“Sorry big fella, but I cant risk you starting an all out war. If they see you, they’ll never believe we’re here for anything less then death and destruction.”

He hated re attaching the necklace, each time he let Ghast out, it was longer and longer. Sooner or later Nina would become hesitant and then there would be a problem. He cared for Nina, but if need be, he would not give her the option of releasing Ghast on her own free will. Slowly the fearsome hellhound transformed back into the lovely Nina.

“Do not be afraid, stay close, and pay close attention.”

As the jet door slowly lowered, a small army with guns and weapons at the ready, where there to great them.

FREEZE! DON’T MOVE!!

Gambler cautiously raised his hands in the air, and nodded to Nina to do the same.

“My name is Jean Luc LeBeau. Tell your master, that Gambler is here.”

Whispers and stares arose from the men. One of them, with golden Captains bars on his shoulders, quickly got on his communicator. After a brief exchange with someone on the other end, Gambler and Nina where handcuffed, blindfolded, and taken away. They sat in darkness for what seemed like hours. Finally, the blindfolds where removed. Now the only thing to do was sit, and wait.

Magneto was informed of the most unexpected visit by some one he had not expected would come. But he know why he know the moment he heard. The guard in front of him had been very nervous and his knees where shaking in the presence of Magneto.

"Try to cover your fear better, Its a sign of weakness."

Magneto stood up a large metal spike riped thru the back of the man blood splatter out.

"We can have no weakness now."

Magneto walked towards his guest quarters where the men had taken Gambler who awaited him inside. Magneto walked down the hallway thoughts of the last time these two men spoke to each other the words that where exchanged.

----- memory -----

Magneto "Would you destroy all just to kill me?"

Gambler "Of course I would."

He shocked his had at the thought now was not the time for revenge. It was a chess match still and his piece where not all in place. He opened the door and entered the room.

"Bloody Hell brave of you to show up here"

"What's my middle name?"

"Wow...that's freaky!"

Ahhh, why don't you help out.......place your hands over the book and say "Eyes, and ears, mouth and brain, let my spirit know everything"

Doll placed her hands on the book and repeated after the voice "Eyes, and ears, mouth and brain, let my spirit know everything...The room shined with a bright blue color....in front of her she could see Gambler and Nina. "Where are they?....That's Las Vegas..they went to SIN CITY without me!!!"

His eyes burned as he frantically typed, attempting to override whatever was blinding them to the world. It had been too long now, and who knows who had come into the area, hostile or not.

"Well, only one thing left to do about it." Another window popped up in front of him, labelled Goldeneye II. "Computer,prepare launch sequence 001-G2." A confirmation beep sounded as the new spy satellite prepared for launch.

"Ignition. Goldeneye II is go." said the computer as the technology launched it's self through the atmosphere. "Time until communication is re-gained, Four minutes, 42 seconds."

Paragon took a deep breath through clenched teeth. That was four minutes longer than they had. "Alright. Last thing left to do..." He flipped back to the original window and typed in the self destruct sequence. "God, what a waste of money and resources... But I guess it's better than having whoever hacked us using our own network to spy on us."

As Jack walked out of the Castle he saw something he definitely was not expecting. Gambler. The leader of the Hellfire Club. Handcuffed and blindfolded, being led to the area he had just left by some no name Vine Villain.

He would have stopped, but honestly he didn't care. He had no quarrel with him, the two had never met. But...it was odd.

He wasn't about to let the curious side of him lose an important mission. He headed out of the castle in haste, and began to gather what little intelligence he could at his starting point for the Ultimate's member Sparda.

There had been one rumor, though, that one of their newest recruits had indeed been affiliated with the neutral team before joining the VV.

That was his best bet to start. He walked around for a few hours gathering enough electrical energy to summon a lightning bolt and used it to warp to New York City, the place where his first mark was said to have been stationed. This packet of informaion would help him out a lot on his mission.

As the door opened, the hair on the back of Gambler’s neck stood up. Even now, after all he had accomplished, after all he had achieved, he was still in aw of Magneto. The man had took Gambler in, taught him everything he knew about being a man an yet, in the end, Gambler betrayed him. But that was then, and this was now. Rising to his feet, he gave a slight nod to the master of magnetism.

“Forgive thee intrusion. But war is on the horizon, as we speak, Darkchild and Renegade Lantern are leading a force into Asia to wipe out Supremity . I’m not taking any prisoners Mags. And with Akira’s group so close to your borders, how long before they team up and come after you? I’m asking for your help. Together we can rid the world of the heroes once and for all.”

The crafty Cajun extended his hand towards the fearless leader of the VV.

“You know it be dee only way.”

But Gambler was no fool, his left hand was in position to quickly snatch the necklace from Nina’s neck if need be. The tension was rising.

Magneto took the helmet from his head his eyes stop glowing he looked upon the man and his hand extended in front of him. He realized Gambler was perhaps expecting an attack and had he not more control over himself he might have.

It didn't take Jack long to find the man. He was Eric Septem, and he was making quite a big deal out of what he'd done in the past few days. He had apparently been hunting and shot...Resonate never listened anyway. He kept a safe distance until the time was right. He was alone, in an alleyway at night.

Eric pulled out a cigarette and lit it in the darkness. The faint glimmer gave him the slightest view of Jack's face. Resonate walked up to him in a calm demeanor.

"Who are you? What do you want? I'm with the VV, you know. I could have twenty men on you in an instant..." he fidgeted, dropping his lighter as the cigarette went with it.

" I'd like to know the whereabouts of the Ultimates member, Sparda. And if you value your kids I wouldn't lie." and he could back it up, too. He knew everything about the ways of information obtaining. He'd been taught by a master.

"I...I only have a son...he's eight" the man nervously said. He was backing up, but the amount of distance he could get before Jack chased him down wasn't very far at all.

"I know. Now tell me" he said.

The worthless spy had very little information to give. But he did however get what he needed. The man would be disposed of soon.

"Now please!Can I go?" the man asked.

"Can I trust you?" Resonate replied.

"Yeah..." Eric said, stealthily pulling a gun out of his back pocket.

"Because I don't think I can." Jack finished, stabbing him in the lung with a pocket knife he'd taken from the guard he had killed earlier. He stabbed the man four times before checking his pulse. He was most definately dead.

After gaining enough energy, he warped himself to Brazil, where he could really begin.

Through the darkness DC could see the woman very well the world around them shifted as her anger continued.

DC began to walk forward gesturing for RL "You know i was beginning to wonder how many women and children i had to kill to get your attention." DC created a sword and held it at his side, he was not going to be predictable as he has always been he was going to wait for her to attack.

"You feel like he's using me, don't you? But I'm meant to be YOUR tool, not his." Nina bitterly thought to herself. "The difference is," Wisp began "We were brought together by accident, we HAVE to work together. He merely uses you for his own ends." Nina looked up at Gambler, he was prepared to unleash the dog again. She could tell when it was time by now.

In her absence she had forgotten how annoying this little dance had become. Sometimes she'd be sitting and minding her own business, and she'd feel a tickle on the back of her neck. The feel of his fingers playing with the clasp, she'd wonder if he was teasing her...or teasing himself perhaps. He was a little too good at sneaking up on her. Ever since he found out about the amulet he couldn't resist playing with his new toy.

A smile came across Paragon's face as one by one, image feeds from around the world popped up on the screen.

"Boo-yaka! We're back online!" Paragon shouted triumphantly into the comm. There was no way this feed was getting hacked. Extra security measures were put in, as well as defences, should any fool try something.

He scanned the images for anything new that might have happened in the time lost. South America, all clear. Mexico. Clear. Vine Villain HQ. Something there looked out of place.

"Computer, zoom into Las Vegas International." The image came into focus, and he raised an eyebrow at the sight.

"A Hellfire jet in VV territory? Mags will have that blown up right away. Alright, 3..2..1.. Jet blows up." He was answered with nothing. "Jet blows up... Now. Now. Gunfire? Nope. Frick. This is bad." Paragon realized that the worst thing that could happen to the heroes was happening. An evil alliance.

Magneto and Gambler firmly grasped eachother’s forearm. So much history, so much hate, yet, so much respect.

“So its settled then.” Gleamed the crafty Cajun. “How rude of me. Allow me to introduce you to my associate Nina.”

The two exchanged brief pleasantries before Gambler chimed in.

“We shall return to Russia and gather the rest of our forces. I propose a simultaneous assault of the Ultimates. I shall personally lead my army from Africa, while you unleash the VV from above. They will not be able to fight such a massive war on two fronts.”

Gambler’s mind was cycling through an infinite number of possibilities, all resulted in the death and destruction of millions. And so it began. For the first time in nearly a decade, Magneto and Gambler where fighting side by side. The only question that remained was, who would betray who first.

“Come Nina, it is time for us to take our leave. I shall contact you upon or arrival in Africa. We can coordinate are attack then.”

"I think it is time for us to take a stroll around Los angeles" said the Left head.

"Agreed" said the Right head to the left head.

"We have the time to spare" said the middle head.

Soon the Golden hydra stretched it's wings and it took flight flying around the city at mach 3.

Then it flew towards Magento's castle increasing it's speed to mach 15 and rode the jet stream to greatly shorten travel time.

It arrived there in no more than 5 minutes.

Magneto agreed with Gambler about the Ultimates.

"I shall also send a group into Suprimity territory to assit there they will be ready soon enough."

The plan was well enough how it was take out the other two then destroy each other. However the real question was for how long would they work together. Magneto escort Gambler back to his jet.

"You shall be escort out of Vine Villians Air space"

Magneto looked once more at Gambler once the man was nothing it was different to see him, how he was now. On top of the world at least for now. Magneto thought for a moment how many things the two had gone threw how often they had battled in the past.

"I shall ready are end of things till i hear from you on your side attacking at the same time should threw them off."

The Golden hydra walked up to the gate

"I demand entrance!" said the Middle head.

It waited for a reply.

"So what shall we do while waiting" said the left head.

"We shall wait patiently!" cackled the Middle head.

All of King Ghidorah's domain are watched over by highly effective governors as too ensure no panic when it is absent.

The King of terror waited and waited.

"GAh! this is taking too long!" said the right head.

"Patience brother patience" said the Middle head.

All our devastation was corrected with scream let out by Celestrion. What the fu... RL thought and with a quick gesture from DC, RL knew what he had to do. He swiftly made his way behind Celestrion. Using the darkness for cover and concealment. RL knew that Darkchild could hold his own but nothing would be left to chance. With the back of the Sorceress to RL he charged an energy ball waiting for a moment of vulnerability to unload a flurry of mass power upon the leader of Suprimity.

Resonate reached the place he had been aiming for:Brazil. The bad ting was that he had n idea where he was. He needed to find Sparda, and he knew that he couldn't have been that far away from the coordinates he had gotten from the traitor.

He did all that he knew to do. He used the frictional energy that he found on the ground to charge up his sword a little. There wasn't much, and the Sphere needed somethng to feed off of, so he shouldn't use all of the energy. He started cutting down the trees, each taking respectively two or three strikes, as opposed to a fully charged blade slicing through metal in one.

"SPARDA!!!" he yelled at last, after every tree he could find was cut down. It took him many hours, but they were down. All he could do was hope that his old friend would help him, if he was there. He knew that this betrayal would be easy to complete if...and then everything went black. Not enough electricity to keep him going. He was dead if no one found him soon and got him some place urbanized. And the only one who would know to do that for miles would be Sparda anyway.

Sparda stood in the control centre. With the communications back on, he realized that he had no need to be here anymore.

"Thanks for the help Golem. Keep in touch", he said as his arms were covered with the dark smoke yet again. He snapped his fingers, and once again, he teleported back to his outpost. He arrived outside of the one room incampment.

"The hell?", he said aloud. A huge section of the forests trees had been cut down. His cameras were either looking at the floor point blank or were shattered.

Sparda reached behind his back and drew his sword up. He stepped slowly forward, and then heard someone yell. Someone yell his name.

"SPARDA!!!"

With one hand holding his sword, he drew a pistol with the other. He quickly moved towards the sound, jumped over and weaving between the wreckage of the trees. He almost missed the man.

He stopped. The man was Resonate, a member of the VV. Sparda aimed his pistol at the unconscious man's head. He should shoot him right now.

Resonate had once been Sparda's ally, but joined the forces of evil and stayed there.

"Crap man......why are you here", Sparda said exasperated. He kicked the, hard. He didn't move.

"Ran outta juice, didn't ya? No matter.....", Sparda trailed off as he holstered his pistol and grabbed Resonate by the arm. He lifted him and carried him back into the outpost. He tossed him on the floor. Moving into a corner filled with boxes, Sparda ripped one open and reached inside. He pulled out a water bottle, took off it's cap, and dumped the contents all over Resonate. The man didn't stir.

Next, Sparda moved to one of the now useless computer monitors. He punched through it and into the wall. Ripping his hand out, he held a electrical wire.

"This probably shouldn't kill you. Probably", Sparda spoke. He tossed the wire onto Resonate, and the electricity crackled as it coursed through him and the water. It should rejuvinate him.

"As DC sat on a pile of bodies picking food from his teeth with a bone the world around him and his army began to change. "What the hell?" The stack of bodies he was sitting on disappeared from beneath him and he fell only to catch himself and stand and dust off his cloak. He looks up to the person responcible in front of him her eyes were red with rage and a vail of darkness fell over the troops and DC. All DC did was smile "Hun even if i didnt have my powers i would still be able to see you, your aura of light is not that hard to see."

Celestrion removes the darkness as she summons her Z'rec'ta.

z'rec'ta transforms as to celestial swords as she swirls them around

"Make your move"

Knowning the balance was reshifted she regained strength and ran toward DC and Charged swinging her swords upward as the sound Impacted the ground causing the earth to erode.

THe ground began to fall apart as the force headed towards DC a smile can to his face. He stood his ground, as her sword came down upon him he held his sword out in front of him blocking her "You remind me of myself you know that." His body contorted as he pushed against her sword she was indeed a powerful one, but not as powerful as the men and women he has fought before, DC wants to make this battle last a bit longer than he had hoped. He lets his sword drop and sends a kick towards her gut, his leg charged with electricity and dark matter.

He also sends a massive blast of energy at her in case his first attack misses

"...yes, ok South America, well it shouldnt be that hard eh?........ Yeah well we'll soon see if we can get the package through.... talk to you later then."

Elusive turned off his cell phone, he had just heard a plan that was amazing by his informant within one of the enemy teams. He quickly wrote a letter and left it on his desk, the letter was to celestrion:

"Well it seems that for the greater good and our advantage in this war, i have to deiver something special to a guy in South America. This doesnt mean anything against you but when i see things that are a one time chance that could help us, i'll take it. Plus, i'm only an ally to the team so pick a better leader, i hope to return to you soon.

Elusive."

Elusive wanted to go unnoticed so he took off his Suprimity Badge and left it on his desk, he when to one of the change rooms to change back into his old Arcryn armor. He quickly left the base to go to his first checkpoint in Sudan, a country he hadnt lived in for years. Sudan was the homeland of the Arcryns, more specifically, The Sudan Hotlands was the desert country that Elusive owned and commanded where millions of humans and mutants and Arcryns lived in peace before they were all attacked and killed.

He and one of his Roughneck partners, Dutch left the base in a jeep, fully armored and heading to the nearest port to Africa.

The cosmic awareness sensed that RL was behind celestrion.

Celestrion the discharges the energy he has established.

The uses light patterns to figure his location.

"Better here, than down there." Deeg replied, whilst pointing at the ground. "I finally finished my training, but by that time VV had a firm grip all over North America. Took me longer than expected, but I made doubly sure nothing tracked me." Deeg looked at Cham, and then at the base, a note of admiration in his eyes.

"You got some fine men here, they almost found me a couple times, and I couldn't just let them take me, I had to see you. Alot of stuff is happening right now, you probably know more than me about most of it." Deeg started walking in the general direction of the base. "I got alot of stuff to catch up on, where everyone is, what's our status, and the situation here. But there will be time for that later, more importantly there is a little something I need to talk to you about in private." The look in Deeg's eyes had turned from one of excitement to one of dire concern.

celestrion decides to vanish then reappear with a discharge sheild to absorb the second attack

mentally controlling her swords she transforms it into a cage around Dc and attempts to teleport RL with him

she then summons her spell book and conjures a giant hand from the shadowy dimension

"In the name of the Dread Dormammu --

by the power of the deathless Vishanti --

I call upon the Hosts of Hoggoth!

heed the words of thy mortal servant!"

an earthquake appears with a giant hand rising up from the dimensional portal mystically grabbing DC and holding him

RL came out of the shadows only to see a scuffle between DC and Celestrion she attempted to teleport RL but it failed. RL flew into the air generating a force field around himself. Now he had a distinct advantage over the exposed sorceress. With her attention focused on Darkchild, RL began throws an energy ball aimed at the back Celestrion's head. That should make her release DC.

DC thought RL's loyalty in battle was admirable but his attacks were not needed. DC began to charge his body with energy and then he released it through his hands, sending him bursting from the hands grasp he hovers above the ground his hand above his head. Then from his hand a ball of energy began to form, he held it out in front of him then it absorbed into his hand that began to glow a bright red he sent himself downwards towards the ground. As he neared the earth he slammed his hand right in front of Celes rock began to fly everywhere, he was using this as a distraction. He appeared behind Celes and launched a flurry of fully charged kicks and punches. He knew the woman would most likely dodge the attacks so he began to charge the energy within his body then he backed away and let loose a ball of magnetic energy towards Celes.
