    This wasn't the first time Sarah had seen some of her innards teleported out of her body. The line between super science and mad science was thin, and there had been accidents in the past.

    Didn't make it any more enjoyable, though.

    Sarah's first attack on Vanish had made an impact. She was happy to repeat the process, but she wanted to make things stick this time. It was time to improvise. Sarah opened up portals, keyed to Vanish's unique teleportation signature, unleashing further blasts of energy that homed in inexorably, lighting up the skies with a display of lightning and fury - and it continued even as Sarah vanished into a portal, heading a couple miles away in an effort to get a reprieve from Vanish's assault while her bolts did their work.

    Let's go for a power stunt: Blast 11, with the Perception Range and Secondary Effect extras and the Distracting flaw, as well as Affects Insubstantial 2. That'll trigger a DC 26 Toughness save this round and next round, and hopefully Vanish won't be able to follow a teleport in a random direction.

    Gethsemane answers the Skrull's 'friendly' gesture with a thin smile just as sincere, taking a prudent step backwards. One large wing unfurls from her back, the thin-looking membrane meeting a blast of colorful energy ricocheting out of the massive melee around her and absorbing it with no apparent damage. "Still sloppy. So, you know what this ring is." She flexes her fingers, and her nails shoot out into six-inch-long claws, already burning with crimson fire as her ring, staff, and forehead sigil turn the same color.

    A moment later, she is in front of the Skrull, her claws tearing towards her opponent's stomach with savage ferocity. "You are woefully unprepared to face a demon," she continues, her calm voice at odds with her ferocious movements.

    Round 3

    Roarin' was a big ol' T-rex of an Inhuman, but that didn't make him slow. He deftly sidestepped Rene's charging strike, with a little sigh.

    "So that is how it must be, then? And here I had hoped you were rational," he said with a disappointed voice. "Very well. If you shall not listen to reason, then listen to this," he said with an air of offended dignity, as he faced Rene squarely.

    "You are not a man who has been turned into a beast!"

    "You are a beast who has deluded itself into thinking it used to be man!"

    "You are not a heroic figure, never were, and never could be!"

    "You are a Quixotic figure, charging at windmills in vain hopes that your victories could ever matter!"

    "Some of them see you for what you are, and act accordingly!"

    "Insane!"

    "Dangerous!"

    "A monster!"

    "And they, you should thank. For they at least acknowledge the truth!"

    "As for the so-called heroes who profess to be your so-called friends, they show you kindness of of neither love nor loyalty, but merely pity!"

    "A mongrel and a fool, at best a slab of inhuman meat to stand between themselves and their enemies!"

    "You mean nothing to them!"

    "You mean nothing to anybody!"

    "You!"

    "Are!"

    "ALONE!"


    --

    Vanish phased out as the blasts of energy crashed down upon her, avoiding immediate harm, but the assault did not seem like it was letting up any time soon.

    Sarah popped out a reasonable distance from the battle. Good news was, Vanish didn't immediately appear and resume her attack. So Sarah's plan for a little breather worked.

    ...Bad news was, that meant Vanish didn't currently have anybody to occupy her attention.

    --

    Heavy Heart moved with surprising speed considering her augmented density, but even she couldn't completely escape Gethsemane's furious assault. However, her dense flesh proved resilient even in the face of demonic power; Gethsemane left some scratches on her, but her blood ran in trickles, not streams, although the fires of Gethsemane's rage still clung to her, and continued to burn.

    "Unprepared?" she retorted bemusedly, a wry smirk on her face, not betraying any sign of pain. "I am a Super-Skrull!"

    She reached out with a hand, and the crimson fires of Gethsemane's rage burned even hotter, as the emotion-manipulator sought to turn the very anger she channeled back against her!

    "I'll adapt!"

    --

    Ronin unleashed his most powerful attack, the Spirit Sword Strike, the blow that had struck down Gladiator himself!

    But you know, there's something you have to remember about mutants. They had been persecuted for decades. Had faced all manner of threats seeking to wipe them from the planet, from bigots with guns all the way up to cosmic forces. It could easily have been argued that they had more enemies, and more hateful ones, than any other group of supers on the planet and very possibly off of it as well. And yet, despite all that hostility, all that energy devoted to wiping them out, two things remained constant:

    The first of those was simply: they were still here!

    Lastthought's iron blade came up, and he parried Ronin's energy-charged sword. Oh, it wasn't a casual block. The sheer force of the strike nearly wrenched the blade from his hands and knocked him back a step. But he took it, and faced Ronin down across their joined blades with a look of uncompromising determination. He pushed back against Ronin's sword, trying to drive his own into the fey warrior, his will pounding on Ronin's as if a paragon were squeezing down upon his skull.

    But there was just a hint of desperation in his eyes, because the power of the Spirit Sword continued to build, towards its inevitable detonation.

    Because that second constant?

    Time and time again, the most deadly enemies that mutantkind ever faced, were always other mutants.

    --

    Felltrade looked down at Spider-Man as he lay, unconscious from blood loss, on the roof.

    The assassin sniffed, and went off in search of more prey.

    --

    Sunbound cast her gaze to where the two super-powered gangs were brawling...except there seemed to be some interference going on. Some other group of mutants was attacking the first group of mutants while they were trying to fight the Inhumans! That wouldn't do! How were they supposed to see who was better if outsiders interfered?

    "Let's keep it fair now," she said softly, certainly not anywhere near loud enough for anyone in that brawl to hear, and unleashed a consuming blast of solar fire upon the X-Men.

    The flames didn't so much as singe the X-Bones or Terrorgenesis fighters. After all, we wanted a fair fight, didn't we?

    The words stung Rene's body and bore into his soul.

    He's been told this before. He's been accused of being a beast; he's been called a monster; he's been called insane; he's been called irredeemable once. He's heard it time and time and time again! The words never stop hurting. They're words of rejection and resentment that stay with him. It's one thing when it comes from a normal civilian; Rene deals with that all the time.

    This time, it's a villain telling it.

    Roarin's words are overwhelming under his powerful voice. The dominant speech feels worse than most physical wounds. For him to call Rene insane... dangerous... inhuman meat, a beast who thinks he's a man. It's too similar. Too similar to that hateful THING. Rene can't stand it. He's not a monster; he's not a monster; he's a beast but he's not a monster! He's insane but he's not dangerous! He may be a fool but he's not inhuman meat! And that dinosaur is still talking. He's still talking, on and on and on and on and-

    SHUT HIM UP!

    The voice in Rene's head yells with an unsightly fury. The eyes in Rene's slits suddenly twitch wildly as something creeps up in his mind; his lizard tail flails in jagged, wild patterns. It's a lingering, familiar yet oppressive feeling; not like the Totem but something instinctual. It creeps around and into Rene's thoughts with the same phrase as above, repeating again and again as if to demand him to do what they say.

    And then, he snaps.

    His mouth opens as he hisses at Roarin'. The pain of the reptilian's past wounds disappear as he becomes centered on this hateful excuse of a dinosaur. Rene's eyes almost seem to lose life as the beast within him takes over his human mind. "Shut up," he curses, hissing maddeningly at the villain. Suddenly the reptilian dives at the dinosaur, sending both of them on a rampant dash across the fairground as Rene's coarse voice seems like it's about to crack. "Shut up! Stop talking and fight!" With his reptilian instincts taking over and his mind utterly rejecting insults and verbal attacks, Rene dashes around the area, swiping and striking Roarin' with his claws in a flurry of hit-and-run tactics.

    ...Though perhaps due to his hit-and-run strategy, the reptilian has several quick and unaware meetings with Felltrade. The reptilian, too crazy and obsessed with Roarin' to notices, takes several slashes to his back and side as the knife-wielding villain becomes distracted by the reptilian's manic movements that come and go as a green blur. By this point, Rene's mind is too far gone to notice slashes and cuts over his body when he can regenerate from it; the only bit of sanity he has right now is his one letting him identify reality with fantasy... for now.

    In response to the Super-Skrull's attack, Gethsemane lifts her left hand, allowing the flames to shoot up and away from her in a massive arc of raging energy. The arc disrupts a group of flying Inhumans that had been bearing down on hapless citizens, allowing the citizens to scurry quickly into cover.

    Gethsemane studies the Skrull in front of her for a moment, thinking. Adaptational... may be in best interests to end fight quickly, then. Risky; chance of overexerting, but best outcome. Her outstretched hand comes down on a massive swipe, the empowered rage turning back on the one who boosted it in another heavy slash. "Re-learn how Indigo Tribe works," she says conversationally, her markings, ring, and staff beginning to glow an ugly blue-yellow. "Emotions are felt through lens of Compassion; they are not in control."

    The Demoness lifts her right hand. In the center of her palm, dark, swirling energies form a ball of oblivion fire, striated with bands of sickening yellow. "You will adapt? Demons have been since time began, child. Have adapted to every change since then." With a flick of her wrist, she jets the ball of fear at her foe. "See."

    Sarah's retreat from the battlefield was strictly temporary - it was a chance for her to catch a breath while her assault did its work. She certainly wasn't going to stay away. What she WAS going to do was armor up - and then fly back to punch Vanish in her stupid phasing, teleporting face. Sarah's Titanomachy exo-suit formed around her, its pieces teleported in by Minerva back at her lab. As she interfaced with its systems, the suit lit up, its systems coming online. Then Sarah took flight, warping gravity around her as she zoomed back toward the fight. As soon as she got within sight of Vanish, she locked on - and, straining the suit's systems, unleashed a blast from its intrinsic field subtractor.

    Spoiler: Actions and Rolls
    Show
    First: standard action to don her suit. Second: move action to come back to the fight. She teleported 2 miles out, and her fly speed is 4 miles/round, so she should be able to get back. Then extra effort to surge and take an extra action, using it to fire off the intrinsic field subtractor. Polymath will be set to FE, All-out Attack, and Improved Critical 3. Here's the attack roll, going all-out for 5 and power attacking for 2 (plus putting the +2 from FE into attack): (1d20+15)[26] If that hits, it's a DC 24 Fortitude save vs. Weaken Toughness, followed by a DC 29 Toughness save. There's also the secondary effect of her last attack, which is another DC 26 Toughness save.[/roll]

    Round 4

    The Builder lashed out at Roarin' in a frenzy, coming in far too aggressively for the big Inhuman to avoid him this time. Even so, Rene's claws scraped harmlessly off the tyrannosaur's scaly hide.

    "Hmph. You don't even make a good beast," Roarin' commented disdainfully, before lunging forward and chomping down with his enormous maw right on Rene's head. And he roared as he struck, seeking to crush the lizard-man with his jaws and his voice alike!

    --

    "Intrinsic Field Subtractor". Well, let's see what that does...

    ...Oh. Oh, it appears to utterly obliterate most targets.

    Well, yes. Yes that would be an accurate description. "Utterly obliterated" definitely describes how Vanish is feeling at the moment. She did, at least, manage to phase out enough to save, well, most of the matter making up her body. You know, the important stuff, anyway. But while there is a difference between being completely utterly obliterated and only partially utterly obliterated, in the midst of combat it was largely a semantic one. The astral assassin let out a screech before collapsing, passed out from shock and pain.

    Up in the sky, Sunbound frowned and swooped down, getting between Sarah and the assassin. She gave the super-scientist a firm, challenging glare. Maybe she thought Sarah was going to try to finish Vanish off while she was down? Look, who knows what Sunbound's thinking. Point is, she scooped Vanish up and flew off with her at Kryptonian speed. It was probably too much to hope that she was gone for good, but who knows?

    --

    Gethsemane hit Heavy Heart solidly with the blast of fear, and it didn't exactly help matters that she was still on fire. Even with her own empathic abilities to mute the terror, Heavy Heart's...heart (hearts? I'm actually not up to speed on Skrull biology) began pounding, as insidious whispers began filling her head. The demon had countered every move she had made, and had remained in complete control the entire time. How could she expect to beat her? And this was a demon.

    She'd kill her if she won.

    Heavy Heart reduced her density near to nothing, and took off, flying at speed under the compulsion of Gethsemane's power.

    *CRUNCH*

    The massive jaws of the t-rex come down on Rene like a meteor. The smaller reptilian, hissing ferociously at the dinosaur-man, throws his arms forward in a crazed panic. Rene's clawed hands smashes down on the sharp teeth, feeling bone and muscle tear through as he gets his own hands impaled to protect his head. The smaller reptilian screams at the pain as his own voice is drowned out by Roarin's sonic roar. Rene loses sight and sound again as he the blast forces his clawed feet off the ground and his clawed hands out of Roarin's teeth.

    Everything looks like a white light. Rene can barely see anything. Where is he going? Where is Roarin'? God, where is eve-

    *SLICE*

    *STAB*

    *SLASH*

    A sudden, prepared flurry stabs and strikes tear into the reptilian's body as he blindingly runs into Felltrade's carefully-planned path; the reptilian's senses promptly return upon such horrid pain. The knife skewed and sliced through Rene's chest scales, leaking and sprouting his blood across the stone floor. Rene, almost delirious over the sudden pain, screams again in pain as, out of instinct, he slithers away from the knife-toting villain.

    What are you doing?!

    The voice in Rene's head screams as he exits a narrow passage and appears in front of Roarin'. The smaller reptilian's body quivers and shakes; the knife wounds lie present on his chest and stomach as green scales and red liquid covers the ground; his tail drags across the stone ground as he clawed feet moves him forward... hesitantly. Rene is a mess, badly wounded, mentally worn-out and in a dire need of a bestial rage.

    "Urk," he squeaks between his many sharp teeth. His breaths become an ugly mix of actual breathing and strained hisses. "Ssssssssssssss-". Blood drips lightly out of his open-mouth as his reptilian slits twitch erratically. C'mon, he thinks to himself. C'mon, c'mon c'mon, I-I can't drop here. I gotta do something! I gotta-

    SCREAM!

    An ear-piercing shout briefly pierces the area as Rene's bestial instincts take over. His brain, partly-shutting down, ignores pain and fatigue as his body lunges over at Roarin' again. Determined to fight like a beast instead of a hero, Rene tries slashing rapidly at the t-rex's body!

    Sarah watched the Kryptonian fly away, and for the moment she did not pursue. Instead, she planted herself in front of the crowd on civilians, letting the Titanomachy armor soak up the hits and protect the innocent while she caught her breath.

    Round 5

    Felltrade kinda gave the Builder a flat glare as he, again, went blindly running into the path of his knives. "Again? Really?" he mumbled under his breath. But the Builder's furious response caught Roarin' solidly, scraping four shallow gashes into the Inhuman's scaly hide.

    Meanwhile, across the fairgrounds, Lastthought managed to force Fred's sword back enough for his own blade to dig into the fey-souled mutant's shoulder, bringing with it an acrid smoke as the iron weapon bit into Fred's flesh. But before he could press the advantage any further, the residual energy of the Spirit Sword detonated, blasting him back and leaving him reeling, with several ribs cracked. Fred didn't hesitate, a slash of his sword propelling telekinetic force straight into the combat telepath, dropping him in a spray of blood.

    "Enough," Roarin' said calmly, quietly...even soothingly, his voice lowering to a gentle whisper. "This conflict is pointless. You cannot beat me, certainly not while protecting these pitiful people. Just...stop. Relax. It will all be over soon..."

    ...And then Sunbound flew back to the fray, saw that there was basically one of the big-leaguers still engaged with his target, and decided to help out, firing two beams of burning, golden power from her eyes straight at Rene.

    Which would have been plenty bad enough, even without the frankly rather annoyed at this point Felltrade pulling out some sort of pliable barbed cord thing and sending it lashing at Rene's throat.

    "...Excuse me, have the fairgrounds been emptied? Is there nobody else for the two of you to fight that you have to interrupt my battle? Rude..."

    Rene's breaths became heavy as the villain's soft, gentle words came through his ears. There's... something soothing about it. It's like that battle was over, like that no one wanted to fight now. Did everyone else finish up? Were the other villains driven out? Rene should have known the Misfits and the big-name heroes would come through. They could handle this a lot better he ccould. Drowsiness began washing over the reptilian as his wounds weighed heavier on him. He needed to rest; he needed to sleep; he need-

    NO!

    A showering pain careened through the reptilian's mind as he's suddenly forced out of his mystical drowsiness. Mind control; it was mind control again; it's always that damn power! Hissing breaths came out of the bloodied, green reptile as he stepped back just in time to be bombarded by blasts of light from above. The beams struck the reptilian on both sides as he gave off a harrowing scream. Fire, fire, fire! God it hurt! The boiling heat sizzled off his shoulder scales as he stumbled to keep standing on his clawed feet. The flashing in his eyes left the poor reptilian unaware as a whip of barbed cord came from behind and around his neck.

    *SLIT*

    Rene only remembers a shower of blood spill open in front of him as his neck scales and throat are sliced open. His attempt to scream in pain is silenced as his windpipe is slashed apart. His heavy tail flings and flops in shock as his body feels like it's breaking down. He can't describe the pain. He can't explain what it was like for, just that brief moment, live without a windpipe. He put his clawed hand on the throat, futilely trying to stop the bleeding even as his regeneration begins closing it. The eyes in his slits flash white, and then darkens... darkens... darkens.

    A staggering hiss, and the reptilian's mind releases from reality. He slams his clawed hands down on the thick swamp grass, hissing loudly at the tyrannosaurus rex of a villain. "No... No, no!" the Builder hisses in retaliation. "No stopping! No resting!" His body shakes briefly before suddenly lunging at Roarin', swiping past before landing behind him. The green reptilian's mouth and throat is plugged full of thick, swampy liquid as he spits at his enemy. "I am a beast! I do not stop!" Filled with madness, the Builder lunges again with his incredible speed, and again, and again, and again he dashes to and away after each slash. A raptor will never kill a t-rex in a straight fight, but no brute will beat its speed!

    Armor systems are intact - internal batteries recharged. The suit is performing admirably. Stark's going to review the footage of this fight, though, and it'll give him ideas - I estimate that he'll end up inventing some of the tech I'm using a year or two early, now. Despite the chaos of the battle, Sarah was as calm and measured as ever. It would take something bigger than a mass attack from squad of supervillains to rattle her. While she defended the civilians, Sarah scanned the opposition to identify the next biggest threat - and when the Kryptonian, Sunbound, returned, she instantly shot to the top of Sarah's list.

    Taking flight, the scientist supreme streaked toward Sunbound, a blue and white blur in the air as she moved to intercept. She wasn't trying anything fancy, here - this was a brute force attack, smashing into the Kryptonian with all the power the suit's augmented strength could provide.

    Let's make a slam attack. I'll go all-out and full power on this one, with Polymath set to All-out Attack, Power Attack, Favored Environment, Fast Grab, and Improved Grab. Here's the attack roll, with the FE bonus going to hit: (1d20+10)[28] If that hits, it's a DC 34 Toughness check. If I hit, I'll also use Fast Grab to go for a grapple; I think that's a DC 29 resistance check using Strength or Dodge.

    After catching her breath and fending off a few civilian attacks, Gethsemane leaps into the air, wafting high over the battle and scanning for further enemies. A moment late,r she sees a likely target.

    A few seconds later, Gethsemane streaks past Felltrade, her claws lit with scarlet flames as they rake at the many-pocketed foe. She skids to a stop in front of him, taking a moment to straighten her dress with the very tips of one set of claws. "Leave, or lose," she says to him calmly.

    Round 6

    Rene's furious assault tore into Roarin's hide, leaving the Inhuman bleeding from two deep gashes. It was nothing the huge tyrannosaur-man couldn't take, but it definitely hurt - as he made rather abundantly clear with a roar of pain that crashed down on Rene's head.

    The Titanomachy suit crashed into Sunbound like a freight train, a colossal impact booming over the battlefield. ...And it bounced right off. Flipping Kryptonians, yo. She dodged Sarah's grab attempt in a blur of super-speed, and when Fred came air-running over to attack in a rapid series of slashes, her hasted movements allowed her to keep ahead of every one. And then she struck back, evidently not so crazy that she'd just ignore people who attacked her to go do something else. Her fists blazed with golden light as she channeled her solar magic to augment her strength, and she lashed out at Fred and Sarah with the full force of Kryptonian speed and power.

    Felltrade limbo-dipped beneath Gethsemane's rending claws, looking at her with a dismissive sniff...but there was something calculating in his eyes as he looked her over. He drew was looked like a large syringe and some weird metal sphere from two of his innumerable pockets, closing in with the demon to jab the former at her neck, draining her blood, while the latter he tried to plant on her stomach, whereupon it would burst concussively to cover her with thick, clinging webbing.

    "That got your attention, huh? Time for you to go down." The Titanomachy suit was built to deal with gods. That didn't mean that Sarah didn't spare a thought for dealing with mere Kryptonians as well. Sure, they were tough - but that didn't help much against having their parts teleported away from the rest of their body. As Sunbound assaulted her, Sarah did the calculations - and after she committed to a hard punch, Sarah opened a portal in front of her, just for a fraction of second, aiming to close it and cut the crazed Kryptonian.

    The villain's soul-crushing roar comes down on the brave reptilian as the Builder's smaller frame crushes the cool swamp grass beneath him. The green one attempts to roar under the sonic fury, finding silence as his vocal cords, along with several bones and internal veins, break apart in his own body.

    Darkness shrouds the environment around them; not a single star nor a sea of leaves are found above the two reptilians. Even Roarin' looks as if he's beginning to be consumed by the darkness as shadows slowly coarse through his body... He's getting blurry, things are looking fuzzier. What's going on? Rene's white eyes twitch and stutter as if trying to blink. He losing his sight; he's losing sight! The sounds of battle and activity fade out around him. He's losing consciousness; his mind has had enough. His reptilian snout opens to speak only for blood, his blood, to pour out like a fountain. God, he's not done yet; he can't just die in this swamp, not to this beast! He feels something slithering in his body; something in him is alive; but there's nothing to save his mind as it, and all his senses, are overtaken by the darkness around him.

    And then... the slithering feeling rends his mind back to his body. The Beast takes over.

    He staggers back up on his clawed feet as swaying grass and water splash around him; his wild, eyeless slits look in havoc around the ruined swamp. The dinosaur has invaded his land, torn his friends apart. One look above shows not darkness but chaos: meteors and meteorites rain down from above down to the Builder's allies. A bloodcurling scream echoes out of the reptilian as he tears through the swamp, throwing himself in front of his allies as the meteors and meteorites rain down on him. The beast refuses to stop, refuses to die as the rocks of destruction rain down on him instead of his fleshy friends. A hiss of fury once the rocks stop, and all who brought those down fall from the reptile's scream.

    The Builder looks to his right, seeing they prey above taken down while the tyrannical t-rex still stands. That blasted invader still stands! That must CHANGE! The Builder hisses in contempt as he, the raptor, disappears like a green blur, appearing in front and then behind Roarin' as the beast faces beast again with a horrid four-clawed slash at the t-rex's head! Down with that giant!

    Round 7

    Fun trivia fact. When Sarah "Super-Genius Who Regularly Consults With Her Future Selves" Saturn says it's time for something? IT IS TIME FOR THAT VERY THING! With perfect timing, Sarah opened a portal just in time for Sunbound's next blow to pass into it - and closed it a fraction of a heartbeat later. It didn't matter how tough you were when that part of your body simply no longer occupied its present space. The kryptonian's scream resounded above the fairgrounds as her arm was severed above the elbow. She dropped like a rock, crashing down to the ground howling in pain as sunlight dribbled from her remaining hand, just barely managing to seal the injury before she passed out from shock and blood loss.

    Rene's brutal assault came to nearly as much success, his claws latching onto Roarin's huge head and tearing away scale and flesh down to the bone, ripping the Inhuman four deep gashes from the top of his skull to the base of his cheeks. The tyrannosaur's Inhumanly-enhanced roar of pain drowned out even Sunbound's cries.

    And that was one on one, down below, Felltrade faced odds even more dire as the golden-glowing Fred came down with a slash of his sword, projecting the force straight into him telekinetically, while Gethsemane watched patiently, waiting for just the right moment, the instant Felltrade's defensive rhythm broke, to lash out with her orange-glowing stinger and steal away his strength.

    Felltrade wasn't a kryptonian. He wasn't an Inhuman. He wasn't a mutant, or a super-skrull, or really much of a metahuman at all.

    What he was was a professional. He parried the telekinetic slash with a knife seemingly drawn from nowhere - it went flying from his hand, but left him unharmed - while bringing a second up to block Gethsemane's stinger.

    Roarin's composure...broke. Utterly. The fury in his eyes was primal, predatory, and prehistoric as he gazed down upon the little lizard who had dared to wound him. "DIE! DIE! DIE!DIE!DIE!DIEDIEDIEDIE!!!!!" he spat furiously at Rene. It...it looked kinda pathetic actually, as he kept trying to slash at him with his tiny little baby claws. But the force of his words was a more deadly weapon by fire.

    Out came Felltrade's spider-silk whipcords, dropping into his hands each tipped with a poisoned blade. He executed a deft spin to gather momentum and lashed them at his attackers in simultaneous strikes, swift as a striking snake. The next moment, there was the burst of a smokebomb, and the assassin could no longer be seen.

    Heavy Heart, battered but not beaten, flew back to the fairground-turned-battlefield, sweeping the fray with her gaze. What she saw...was not encouraging. Most of their minions were down. Vanish gone. Lastthought down. Sunbound down. Roarin' on his last legs...

    Oh, and about a dozen people in sleek, modern-looking costumes of muted colors and a more armor-like than spandex-like appearance, staid grey capes hanging upon their shoulders like the weight of the world, were swooping down towards the fair.

    ...Why had she come back here, exactly?

    The brutal and angry roars of the t-rex crash down on the smaller Reptilian. The Builder feels his scaly body grind again into the swamp grass as his screams are thrown out in silence. The beast's body is weakened; his scales cracked; his bones brittle, his blood flowing across the area. Any human mind would've been destroyed under the attack. The bloody and bleeding green-yellow reptilian fidgets and twitches on the ground; his mind races with crazed thoughts. He's a beast, he's a beast, a beast! A beast! No animal lets another tear them apart!

    Loud, hazed hisses spew from the Builder's teeth-riddled mouth as he tears himself out of the shredded grass. His mad eyes gaze toward Roarin' with diluted pupils. The t-rex is so large, so big, so powerful. No lone beast should fight it alone. But the lone raptor must!

    The crazed reptilian hissed loudly; his remaining vocal cords snap in their brittle state. Almost like it was suicide, yet like a cornered beast, the Builder charges forward with his massive speed and smashes his head against the t-rex.

    *CRACK*

    Rene's skull cracks and breaks as he collides with the injured enemy. The Builder's thick, scaly tail swings out at his enemy's legs.

    *SNAP*

    The bones of his tail break apart on impact; the limb slumps over on the grass, jagged and disjointed. The Builder has no choice; he has to fight, he has to fight. He can rebuild himself; he can rebuild himself! He must keep fighting! With no heed and no regard to his condition, the Builder leaps up and brings down his frail claws upon Roarin's head!

    Given this is largely the last turn, Rene will go all out and pray, for he probably won't survive an attack at +1 Toughness. Power Attack + All-Out Attack +5/-5 on this. DC 30 Toughness on hit. Then EE to do so again! This will leave Rene Exhausted.

    Gethsemane looks around as things begin to wind down, already trying to calculate where best she can begin to heal as she stomps down upon another home-made grenade. The blast leaves her hopping on one foot for a moment, her other leg warped and mangled almost beyond recognition and bubbling eerily as it begins to heal itself. It does not keep her from seeing Heavy Heart reenter the battlefield.

    "Still ready to 'adapt'?" She calls out, one hand conjuring a ball of black flames intermittently flashing with sickly yellow lightning. "Environment here is inhospitable to you. Go." With a contemptuous flick, the ball jets towards Heavy Heart.

    As Sunbound fell, Sarah was already seeking out her next opponent. Scanning the surroundings, she was - barely - able to pick out Felltrade, and she made him her target. The civilians were still under attack, of course, so as she made her move she extended her shunt field to protect them, dispersing the attacks and saving more lives while she hurtled toward the assassin. The technique hadn't worked well on Sunbound (though it had definitely gotten her attention), but she suspected the agile opponent was less durable that his Kryptonian colleague.

    Trying another slam. Polymath is allocated to Perception, so I'll just All-out Attack for 2, move, and attack. The +2 from going all-out is canceled by the slam penalty, I believe, so: (1d20+8)[27]

    As the Builder came crashing down upon him, the unbalanced Roarin' defended himself in the only way he could!

    Unfortunately, that just so happened to be raising his teensy little T-rex arms to try to shield a face that they couldn't even reach.

    Roarin' staggered back under the Builder's final blow, wavering on his feet, looking around bleary-eyed...and then collapsed face-forward onto the ground.

    Gethsemane's first blast struck Heavy Heart in the arm as she dodged, burning her, and she managed to avoid the second. Technically, she had resisted the fear effect. In practice, it didn't particularly matter. She turned and ran.

    ...Right into Superboy and Raven. Crap.

    She turned and ran in the other direction.

    Right back into Gethsemane.

    With a frustrated sigh, Heavy Heart raised her hands in surrender.

    Clearly, it was time to go, Felltrade reached into one of his many, many pockets for a smoke bomb and-

    WHAM!

    Full suit of powered armor going at Mach Several straight to the back. The heretofore untouchable Felltrade went careening into a pole and dropped unmoving into a conveniently-located ball pit. Sad.

    Which left just a small cluster of X-Bones mutants to deal nope nevermind the X-Men wrapped them up trivially.

    For several seconds all was quiet. Then, slowly, the cheering began, spreading out from a few isolated points until pretty much the entire fairground - and even some of the protesters - were cheering the heroes. There had been a few casualties among the attackers, from police and the...less-precisely-controlled powers of some of the volunteers (and, well, several members of Terrorgenesis who had been getting pretty well decimated by the X-Bones). But in terms of civilians? Police? Volunteers? Thanks to the bravery of the heroes, even up to throwing themselves directly in harm's way, nobody had been killed or even particularly injured. There might, maybe, have been a couple bumps and bruises. If that.

    Battle over. Gethsemane take a Hero Point for soloing, everybody take a second Hero Point for playing true to Mirror Matchups for the whole battle, and everybody also take a Hero Point for the victory!

    I rolled a couple final mass combat attacks off-line to see if the SPINners actually got a chance to do anything. The Big Name Heroes knocked another degree off the X-Bones. Then the X-Men finished with strong mutant luck on a crit, wrapping the matter up.

    A broken, beaten, and absolutely mad reptilian creaks his neck upwards, attempting to give a hissing, triumphant shout over his victory. Nothing but the gurgling of blood comes out of his broken, shattered vocal cords; the bones in his neck give way right after. The Builder's body is a disaster. His body has been worn down by wounds and brittleness against the towering t-rex. A raptor who faces a larger dinosaur will never come out unscathed; all that matters was that he did it. he took it down. Nothing else matters amidst the starry night. Now he can rest. Now he can recover on the cool, soft-

    *WHAM*

    Rene hits the fairground stonework like a bleeding sack of meat as he feels his chest shatter from the impact. His mind is briefly a blur; how did he end up like this? He knows he was fighting Roarin'; somewhere between those sonic roars, Rene's reptilian skeleton broke down. He's in no condition to move or talk, much less celebrate as he begins to hear the cheers and clapping around the area. Sounds like they won... Good. He'd love to celebrate; he'd love to give a sigh of relief; but he's in so much pain. The only feeling of relief, ironically another cause of his pain, is his regeneration repairing his body, solidifying his bones again.

    So the reptilian waits on the stone ground. It's the most relaxation he's got the entire day, not that it's painless. It's a good minute of awful, horrible pain as his bones reform and stitch back together while his blood leaks out around him. If his regeneration hasn't been so powerful, he'd be hospitalized for weeks.

    Instead the reptilian is down on the ground for a couple minutes before feeling strong enough to stand. Slowly he gets up on his clawed feet, wobbling slightly as his tail pushes on the ground to help stabilize him. He still feels... off, despite the recovery. His stomach growls; his throat is dry. He's in a dire need of food and water, as if he had been unconscious for days. How do other people with regeneration handle this?

    Rene attempts to moisten his throat with saliva before trying to walk, taking several steps and walking around a corner before stumbling next to a very unfamiliar creature, leaving his tired jaw open. "A... A-a demon?" Rene's voice sounds drier than normal; his reptilian snout and head covered in blood with the green-yellow scales paling in color; he lacks the ability to express shock at this point and, quite frankly, he's in no mood to fight another villain he's never seen before. "What are you doing here?"

    Gethsemane looks up from the injured civilian she had been bending over and glances at Rene as he wanders over to her, giving him a quick scan. "Injuries already healed... noted... Builder, you are giant lizard, and have met before," she deadpans in a voice that should be familiar to the Builder, her tone perhaps even drier than the lizard man's, though for a different reason. "Though tired, please remember to think before assuming." She straightens up slowly and stretches a kink out of her wings, looking over the remains of the battlefield. She had let Superboy and Raven deal with Heavy Heart's capture, careful not to meet the eye of the half-demon superhero. Although she had technically been off-world during the events that led to Raven's birth, she had met Trigon at least once before; though the inter-dimensional demon was not technically from the same line (or dimension) as she herself hailed from, the demonic world believed in strengthening bonds between like-minded individuals from other dimensions in order to exploit those bonds later. Meeting Raven after going to the demonic approximation of a barbecue hosted by her father would be... awkward, at least.

    "Seems injuries were mostly minor... makes things simple," she mutters to herself, pushing the thought of confusing demonic relationships from her mind for the moment. "Builder, any injuries not dealt with by regeneration? Can speed process, though must warn that it will not be... pleasant."

    As the chaos subsided, Sarah started to direct the cleanup and recovery efforts until others arrived to take care of things. She assumed that the other heroes could take care of herself; it was important that the downed villains were detained. The downside of the highly public conflict was that she couldn't just pack all the attackers off to Hawksbill. The disappearance of this many villains would raise questions, and it would be tragic if Project Tomorrow were to be derailed by mistaken political attacks.

    Once things were calm enough, Sarah placed a call to NetWork Robotics. "Sarah Saturn for Corinne Keys. An emergency forced me to cut a call short a while ago; if she's free, I'd like to reconnect."

    Rene's paling head almost gains color as the demon begins speaking. He recognized the voice and especially remembers the speech pattern. Most creatures don't talk the way that she does. "Gethsemane?" the reptilian whispers, trying to be soft in his dry tone as he feels something ooze down his throat... Is his throat so dry that he's bleeding from it? His cold-blooded body is so irritated by his condition that it's hard for him to focus. Water... water, he needs water!

    "Urk," the reptilian grunts, leaning over in his already-hunched state before suddenly dashing off in a green blur. He ran over to the workers-only area where the lone water cooler miraculously stands unharmed amidst the chaos of battle.

    ...And before another human could get a chance to take a drink, Rene grabs the large water container, lifts it out of its socket and chugs down the remaining water with swishing, splashing gulps. Tis truly a drink for a beast.

    The humanoid reptilian zips back over to Gethsemane; Rene's scales now recover some of the lost color as his expression, besides being covered with water, looks a little more lively than before. "Sorry, I was thirsty," he says with little context, though Gethsemane could make a guess to what was wrong with him. The green-yellow scaled reptilian looks down at his body, mostly still covered by his suit in spite of his prior internal damage. "I think I'll be fine. I can heal from it." His body shudders for a moment when he mentioned healing. Any thought of regeneration makes his body squirm in pain when he's through a brutal battle. "I'm just... sore." The comment probably could have been more encouraging than it should be.

    With the minimal casualties, Rene doesn't have to scour out rubble for people who are trapped, thank god for that; he just has to clean up the fairgrounds from the rubble. Even if he's tired, it's a rather relaxing job from having to fight a giant reptilian dinosaur. While traveling around with Gethsemane, Rene can't help but ask Gethsemane, "So you were invited here too?" He can't help but wonder whether Katie was hesitant about the idea of asking a demoness to come help. Rene would've supported it, even if all he could do was accompany and help her "fit in" to Project Tomorrow on a whole. "It wasn't something you're used to, was it? I mean, I'm what people call a hero and I kinda felt a bit out-of-place here." Rene was, in fairness, asked to come to help build and maintain the fair; fighting wasn't part of the plan even if he's supposed to always be ready for it.

    Now if he only didn't lose his sanity every time he had to fight...

    The rounding up of the villains went smoothly under Sarah's direction (the fact that most of them were unconscious or in various other states of incapacitation certainly didn't hurt). There wasn't actually any critical need for healing among the civilians, although Gethsemane could see a few people with bumps and scrapes and bruises among the crowd. They certainly weren't in any peril, but likely wouldn't have minded healing. Alternately, there were plenty of attackers who, while probably not at particular risk of death, could certainly use healing to ensure a swift and total recovery from their injuries. Though given that they were a part of this assault, whether your particular healing powers would be a mercy for them was...debatable.

    Fred and Jimmy were both down though. Granted, Jimmy was regenerating and it would probably take more than, you know, a cold iron sword, solar-powered kryptonian fist, and poisoned dagger to keep Fred down long, but they could probably use a bit of a magical pick-me-up.

    "One moment please," the assistant who had answered Sarah's call responded. Although he actually put you on hold for...a fair bit longer than one moment. It was possible Keys was busy, but honestly, it was more likely that it was just some petty little tit-for-tat for your hanging up on her. Billionaire CEOs with an overinflated sense of their own importance could be like that.

    Of course, she was perfectly polite when she finally picked up. "Thank you so much for calling me back, Miss Saturn. I hope everything is alright over there?"

    Katie's Shared Awareness spell came back on-line. ~We're clear here everyone okay th- oh my God are Fred and Jimmy okay!?~ she cut herself off when her spell's status alert started giving her information.

    Still smarting from the bone-chilling touch of cold iron, Fred had gotten wholloped from behind by a Kryptonian. This staggered him on his feet, but he hadn't stopped. He went on the attack against Felltrade anyway - because that's what a samurai does. But a gut stab with a poisoned dagger on top of those things? Well, that turned out to be a bridge too far.

    Fred took a step forward after being stabbed, raised his sword to strike... then collapsed as the world turned upside down and his insides burned.

    He was laying face down, his blood pooling out from under him. He laid there for a minute or two.

    Katie telepathically asked if Fred was okay.

    ~Yeah. I'm fine.~

    Through nothing but strength of will, the mutant warrior pushed himself up off the ground and onto his knees, then stood up to his feet. And that was the end of his commentary on the matter.

    "Have been to similar events before," Gethsemane replies offhandedly to Rene, still scanning the crowd. "Appearing without subterfuge--well, without harmful subterfuge--is new."

Has short-term psychic ramifications on subject of healing; any backlash should fade quickly. Ramifications should not bleed over mental link, but cannot guarantee. Since Fred has regained his feet, Gethsemane addresses him directly for a moment before moving to Spider-Man. "After moment to recover, can repair wounds as well. Be aware: said healing will cause you to feel every wound you have ever inflicted, momentarily. Will not be pleasant. If you decide to forgo healing, will understand."

    Then, kneeling before the unconscious form of the hero, Gethsemane lays one hand on Spider-Man's wounds Her staff, ring, and mark pulse a deep, pure indigo; the light quickly bleeds out from her fingers and washes over Jimmy's body... and in his mind, Spider-Man relives every punch he's ever thrown as though he was on the receiving end.

    Sarah was more than capable of carrying out two conversations at once, especially if one was telepathic.

    ~They're both alive, and they'll recover - I see that the Indigo Lantern is working her magic on Spider-man right now.~ "The attack has been defeated. It's probably been reported on the news already - and it's definitely on Twitter." ~The attackers have been dealt with, and once we're done here I've got a Kryptonian arm in my lab that's simply begging for more study.~ "I'm sorry I had to leave so abruptly." ~Did you know it's possible to develop a solution that temporarily grants Kryptonian-level physical powers?~ "An assassin was trying to kill me, a mad Kryptonian wizard was trying to kill everyone, and I think I stepped in a ninja." ~Anyway, we've got things under control.~ "Anyway, we've got things under control." ~That said, there are people here who've been hurt; Katie, can you swing by and keep things going here?~ "I believe we were discussing the safety measures in place around my generators." ~If you can I'll head back to my lab and whip up something to help people recover.~

    Rene had been greeted with a wonderful, literally and ironically, display of sights once Katie's magical awareness power was set back on. On one hand, Katie is alright! It's the most relieving thing that the reptilian can imagine. There was nothing from her since her awareness spell shut off; he couldn't know how she was doing or if she needed help or anything. To actually hear her voice, just as the day is saved and the heroes heal themselves, brings some much needed easy to the less-than-stable mind of Rene Reynolds.

    On the other hand, neither Spidey nor Ronin were well-off from their own fights. While neither actually broke their bones and vocal cords fighting villains, they also weren't regenerating reptilian monsters who could afford this sort of injury. Rene's cold-blooded stomach irked and twisted in nausea as he noticed the blood-stained bodies through the awareness spell. He's seen so much blood by this point that he should be used to it; he should be so accustomed to the sight of grisly wounds and blood that it shouldn't even be a problem for someone who fights with his clawed hands. Rene himself had been drowning amidst his internal wounds when fighting Roarin'; but the sight of his friends injured was a very different experience from feeling his own gashes and blood vessels while fighting with the rage of a beast.

    Silently he squats his reptilian legs down next to Gethsemane as the two reach Spider-Man. The reptilian's mind, in contrast to his mouth, is rather... talkative.

    ~Katie? Katie! Oh thank god you're alright. I was worried when you shut off awareness; I was too busy fighting this giant t-rex and a bunch of mutants and invaders and battlesuits and- and I don't really recall it all.~ If Rene's mind happens to be unstable, then it's blatantly shown more in his mental speech than it is his words... sometimes. ~Are you alright yourself?~

    His body squirms again as he listens to Gethsemane explain her healing powers. Pain from healing? "What?" His forked tongue sticks out briefly in surprise as his twitching eyes look over at Gethsemane. "What's the point of that? I mean, you save them, but to relive every sort of attack you've ever done? Why would the Indigo Lanterns do that?!"" The reptilian's scaly body shudders as he thinks about the implications. For him, the wounds that hurt him the most have not been physical but psychological. The attacks he's thrown at his enemies have included the trauma he's suffered ever since his transformation. He may as well be torturing his mind if he had to relive parts of his cold-blooded life; his thick tail squirms across the stone ground just thinking about it.

    So he watches as Gethsemane begins healing Spider-Man and- No, no. Rene can't bear to watch this. He can't bear to imagine what the pain, even mentally, might be like on Spidey.

    Instead he looks at Ronin in the distance and, wanting to make himself useful, Rene dashes off as a green blur briefly to grab a large first-aid kit and run back to the mutant; Rene has, if nothing else, started getting used to using his super-speed more reliably. "Lemme help Fred," he tries to reassure the X-Men member as Rene opens up the first aid kit in hopes to bandage up the slash and stab wound... Moreso the stab wound; that looks painful to keep around without patching it.
