Alright guys and gals, I came up with an idea.
Hypothetical Situation: If we were to be made into an "Ultimate" line. Not necessarily more powerful........ but a bit different.
Would you still be the same as you are in the ordinary 2.0-verse, or would you be different? Would you choose to be different?
How many of you would keep the same allies?
You don't have to be infallible - just interesting! Would you give yourself any weaknesses, or limitations non prescribed by the original rules?
Here's your second chances to fix up anything - like some different powers, putting yourself as a different gender. Any regrets you might have can be tossed out the window. Change them if you like. We're trying to draw in a new audience, people!

Basically, I'm a literal superstar. While other Ultimates went grim and gritty, I went glitzy and glamorous. Instead of keeping a secret identity and maintaining a low profile, like I did in normal continuity, Ultimate me instead embraced the limelight after gaining my powers and insuring my family's safety in another world.
Being one of the very first superhumans to publicly proclaim themselves, I'm now a multi-media celebrity. Actor, filmaker, gate-leasing entrepeneur, rockstar, and super hero, I do it all. I'm a media darling, a wildly popular one man industry. Basically, I'm the biggest thing in show biz today, hob nobbing with the rich, famous and powerful, from movie stars to politicians to royalty.
However, although I'm ultra-famous, I've managed to maintain some mystery about me. No one knows exactly what my powers are. The public does know I have the ability to make gates, but other than that everything is speculation and rumors. Subtle use of Illusion Mastery and Correspondence can make me appear to be able to do anything, or to hide the use of the powers I do have. My demonstrated access to extra-dimensional ultra-tech means no one knows exactly whether I'm using a power or a gadget to accomplish something. And whenever I want to momentarily escape into anonymity, Illusion Mastery and Correspondence makes it easy to hang out as a mundane person.

A familiar sound rolled in Ramz's brain, the sound of another immortal coming, "this has to be him" Ramz though, as he waited for the right time for a surprise attack........ 'NOW!'
Jumping down from his hiding place, Ramz landed right in front of his foe, pulling out his Katana, and looking into the eyes of his adversary.... who was blatantly not a vampire.
Who are you.
Immortal - " Names not important, who are you?"
I’m hunting Calias, that's all you need to know.
Immortal - "Good, so am I. It'd be better if we teamed up for this, I hear he was very powerful, and I'd feel safer"
Never fight another immortal like that, no matter how powerful
Immortal - "what? Ok fine, if you're not with me....
suddenly, out of the trees, there was a whistling sound, Ramz instinctively ducked down, the other immortal was not so lucky. A blade the size of a man came crashing threw the trees, severing the Immortal's head from his shoulders, releasing the quickening into the man standing before him, Calias.

The vampires moved closer, intending to finish them off and perhaps add a fledgling vampire or two into their clan. Then, suddenly, a voice spoke from behind them. "Hello, vampires. My name is Wraith, and I'm here to kill you."
The vampires turned around, startled. Despite their enhanced senses and dark powers, they had not noticed the man, clad in a black leather jacket, before he was standing right behind them.
"Well, no point wasting any time", the man said. With a swift motion he pulled a stake from inside his jacket and threw it straight into a vampire's chest. Propelled with telekinetic force, it pierced it easily, penetrating the heart and destroying the bloodsucker.
The vampires recovered from the surprise of seeing this stranger threaten them when one of their comrades died in front of their very eyes. One of them attacked him with a fierce side kick to the stomach that sent him flying back.
"Good one", Wraith huffed, trying to catch his breath. "I bet you worked out when you were alive. Now let's try that again, shall we?"
The vampires charged at him all at once, but a few quick bursts of electricity and fire distracted three of them enough to send them back dodging bolts and trying to put out the fires on their clothes.
The one vampire that got through went straight for wraith's throat and picked him up, planning to easily strangle him with his vampiric strength. "Gah... That's... excellent... my... *gag* dear vampire", Wraith said, his voice getting stronger with each word. "You see, I'm a vampire of sorts myself."
Now the vampire realized something was wrong, but it was already too late. He tried to let go and escape, only to find that it was now he who was being held. Wraith lifted him by the throat with one hand, and as the vampire felt all his dark energies drained from him, his enemy kept getting stronger. After there was nothing more to drain, Wraith drove another stake through the now powerless creature's heart.
"Nice", Wraith said to it. "Your strength will keep me charged for a while, but I still need more."
The other vampires watched in horror and ran into the darkness. Easily, using his innate stealth and newly charged TK, he silently flew after them.

Getting up as fast as he could, Ramz whirled around, sword in hand, to face the mad power hungry vampire. Calias just sat their and waited with a smile on his face. Lifting his massive sword, he immediately started swinging in huge arcs, trying to make the battle as short as possible. Using his force battle prcog, Ramz was able to successfully dodge the oncoming attacks. Getting fed up with his massive disadvantage, Ramz thought up a plan, infusing his sword with ki to make it stronger, and more powerful, Ramz was now able to face the vampire in combat. Swords clanged together again and again, swinging upwards, Ramz got a glancing blow on the vampires shoulder, making a massive gash with his ki burning the vampires flesh. Screaming in pain, Calias went into a berserker rage, swinging in wild arcs, and advancing on Ramz. Going to deflect one of the sloppy swings with his ki infused sword, Ramz was unprepared by the sheer force behind the Calias' blow, which knocked his sword away into the nearest tree.
Prepared for such situations, Ramz jumped back into the high tops of the nearest tree, while in the air, firing of ki blast to faze Calias, and using the force to get his sword back. Without warning, Calias released his deadly blade. Ramz hearing the whistling noise which decapitated the other immortal, knew he had to get out fast. Hopping from tree to tree while the blade followed, cutting down everything in its path, Ramz realized that it was catching up to him, and that nothing would stop the mystical weapon from finishing what it started. Jumping down from the tree tops, in the air, Ramz arced his body so that he would be facing the oncoming blade, which followed his path downwards. While in the air Ramz started gathering up a ki blast, firing it at the last second, and deflect the blade off its course, he and the blade slammed into the ground below.
Getting up as fast as he could, Ramz quickly turned to face the blade, which was now being held by the owner, Calias. Unsheathing his sword, Calias quickly dash toward Ramz, Knocking his sword from his grasp, and grabbing his throat.
"Human, do you think you were a match for me? Hunters for a thousand years have tried to defeat me, all have failed, only to died horrible death's, as you will now."
lifting his massive sword, which Ramz now realized was his means for faster transportation (teleporting); Calias was ready for the quickening.
Suddenly, out of the bush, 3 vampires came crashing towards them, screaming in fear. Distracted by the noise, Calias turn to look at the oncoming trio, Ramz, knowing that this would be his only chance of getting out of this alive, infused his fist with ki, striking the distracted fool in the chest, slamming into the a tree 20 feet away. Recovering, Ramz got up and turned toward his saviors. "this is not good" Ramz thought, he may have saved himself from death, but against Calias and these 3 new comers, things were not looking good.
Written by Jaffa 08-14-2002 06:11 AM
Out of the lead vampire's orders, the three joined him in fighting the fifth man, whose situation wasn't suddenly looking too good. The vampire armed with the huge sword attacked him now like a deadly twister, swinging his weapon faster than should have been possible. Miraculously, the man held his own, managing to block the blows, but the other vampires were circling around him. Soon they would attack him from every direction.
What the hell, Wraith thought to himself, he would rather fight this one man if it came to that, than these four powerful vampires. Perhaps it was time for the cavalry to ride in.
Calias was grinning maniacally. His opponent was falling before his power like so many had before him. Not that there had ever been any doubt of that in Calias' mind - this ninja had been a skilled opponent, but already, each block was a fraction of a second slower, each desperate counter a little weaker.
It was almost too easy.
Then, Calias suddenly felt two hands gripping his head, covering his eyes. Surprised and horrified, he felt his vampiric strength leaving him, his gigantic sword getting heavier in his hands. With a burst of energy fueled by fear and rage, he managed to pull himself out of the horrible hands, just in time before his power was completely lost.
Calias turned around to face this new foe, a black-clad man, now positively crackling with energy. "You still have power to move? Impressive", he said. "Few people are capable of utilizing their power after I've drained it from them." Arcs of electricity leapt between his fingers. "And I drained quite a lot from you."
The ancient vampire stared at Wraith, sizing him up. He still had much of his power left, he realized, even though this stranger had taken some of it. He could make a stand here and fight as long as he was careful not to let his opponent touch him again.
Wraith faced Calias' eyes with a cold glare. "You are the one I'm really after, aren't you?" he said. "Well, I'll take care of you shortly... but without interruptions." With that, he glanced at the three other vampires, each of whom suddenly burst into flames that consumed them in a matter of seconds. "I really shouldn't be that wasteful with energy", Wraith grinned. "But I have a feeling that you still have at least one recharge in you before I must kill you."

I had been stalking this one for days. Relentlessly, I pursued the criminal, from one crime to the next, appearing in the shadows, only to disappear when the other came close. Eric Flatley had begun to think he was hallucinating.
But it did not deter him.
Eric ran into the bank. It was moments before he dashed out the exit. This time, I was waiting for him. I stared at him as he bounced off my chest and tumbled backwards against the glass doors of the bank.
"Perhaps you weren't aware comrade, but armed robbery is a felony."
"Da. And you are Eric Flatley. Introductions shall not be needed."
"No! You aren't even supposed to be here. You're from the comics"
I smiled him. The fool hadn't even picked himself up from the ground yet. He rose tentatively, eyes tracking the tentacles which sprawled along the ground. His reflexes were quick, better than I had expected - I had only taken a moment to glance within the bank and he had pulled a pistol from underneath his jacket. He fired, emptying each chamber of his revolver.
I think I took a little too much enjoyment in watching the despair that was evident on his face. His face was still pointed downwards, taking stock of the bullets which had flattened against my body.
"Your toy seems to be ineffectual. I thought a nerd like yourself would have remembered. Perhaps you would like a missile launcher? Or would a tank even your odds?"
"All I need are these!"
Ahh yes..... Wolverine's abilities. Check. His anger had finally overcome his fear for me. I extended my tentacles to ten feet, tearing apart the ground as he lunged at me. I did not move as his bone claws scraped against me. He did not have the strength to harm me. Before he touched the ground, I caught his legs and wrists, pulling his body apart as I begun my assault.
My foot first hit against his solarplexis, depleting him of breath He didn't yell so loudly as I drove his back through a lamp post. Unfortunately, that was not so when his leg snapped from the fire hydrant.
His pathetic cries for help reach the audience that gathered to watch me brutalize him. The people in the bank had torn themselves between wanting to stop me, and watch the criminal receive his punishment. He was too easy. Perhaps I should have gone after someone stronger, faster..... more dangerous.
Oh, but he was dangerous. Apart from robbing people, he raped women. Oh, not in the normative sense. His second power. He had granted himself the ability to make women more attracted to him. Like Eros, the Titan - I had never been fond of him.
What was his other power, again? It wasn't his most commonly used ability, and it was hard for me to recall at the moment.
A red flash and I'm sent backwards, losing him from my grip. Optic blasts. I'm on him in a heartbeat, using the limits of my superspeed as I beat him into the concrete.
"I will give you the chance to live. You see, I am not Omega Red, nor am I of this world. I am the Angel of Vengeance."
I shifted form, turning into a fantastical being with two wings of flame. The gatherers looked in disbelief as I manipulated my aura, magnifying the light which surrounded my body.
"I am aware that many people on this Earth had been granted super powers, and quite a few have used these abilities to do very rotten deeds. Like stealing....... and manipulating women into sleeping with them. I haven't care for the first, normal people do it all the time. But rape shall not be condoned.
"I shall allow you one chance to atone for your sins. But your road to redemption shall be long, and arduous. First, you will not be allowed to use your power of manipulation. Second, you shall be at my call - day or night. A soldier in my army of vengeance.
"Of course, you have the right to refuse. I shall contact you within a week."
"I shall allow you one chance to atone for your sins. But your road to redemption shall be long, and arduous. First, you will not be allowed to use your power of manipulation. Second, you shall be at my call - day or night. A soldier in my army of vengeance.
"Of course, you have the right to refuse. I shall contact you within a week."
"W..what if I say no?"
"Then you will be dead."
I fly off, blazing into the sky as they watch my departure. Looking down, I see him drop to his knees and start to cry.
He will say yes.

But he couldn't do that, now could he? He had to be good. The doctors said that his "powers" were just a part of the psychosis. He had to be good had to be good. They said ti was dangerous for him to use them
The room was cold. This was another test, he knew it - if he wanted to be warm all he had to do was grow some fur or warm up the air of the room. But he had to be good. If he wasn't good they wouldn't let her come visit him.
It was all because he knew the truth. He knew where the powers came from. He knew it all. But they didn't believe him, no one believed him. He was just a freak like the rest of them.
Sometimes people would tell him about the world. It had changed since that day.. There were people like him. But they were allowed to use their.. To be different. No one stopped them, or called them freaks. No one hurt them. But they were freaks like him, and they needed to be stopped.
They were bad. They were all bad. But the doctors would help them, that was their job. They helped people like him. Freaks like him.
He could still hear the whispers sometimes. He didn't like them. His parents had told him not to talk about the things he heard, but he had cracked because he was weak. Weak and pathetic, like the freak of nature that he was.
But the voices whispered secret things to him still.

Quickly Ramz sprang into action attacking Calias while he faced this new threat, Calias was no fool though, he swiftly parried the young immortals blade with his own, spewing out of his mouth spirits of the dead he has consumed over countless millennia. These phantoms didn't attack Ramz's mind, but his spirit, thankfully, Ramz's ki quickly flared up, dispersing them into nothingness. Turning back to the battle, Calias and the new comer were engaging in what appeared to be magical combat, Calias, throwing around darkness and shadow, while this 'Ghost' man Spewed fire and ice. It was apparent that the 'Ghost' was quickly being drained of his powers from the exertion of defending and attacking such an ancient beast, so Ramz decided to make his move.
Gathering up a ki blast, he blasted the tree nearest to the two battling. The force of his blast knocked the tree over, falling in between them, blocking the magical battle. Quickly, Ramz infusing his body with ki, jump toward the distracted Calias, smash his fist against the Vampires face, breaking his Jaw. Regaining his balance, Calias attacked with his man sized sword, but the attack was too sloppy. Calias was getting weak. Ramz using it to his advantage, slashed with his ki sword up across Calias chest, making an 'X' mark....
Suddenly, the tree burst into flame before Ramz was to claim his prize and receive the quickening. he's mine! came the Ghosts voice distracting Ramz long enough for Calias to quickly dash away from the killing blow.
The three now stood in a triangle, waiting for someone to make the first move.
Written by Jaffa 08-15-2002 03:37 PM
Ramz eyed the energy absorber suspiciously. Wraith was still channeling Calias' power in addition to his own, and didn't look too bothered by the ninja. "It's his head that I want, too", Ramz then said. "...but I'm guessing not in the same way as you do. I think we can help each other in getting it."
Calias was starting to get really nervous now. Things were definitely not going according to plan now.
Written by Ramz 08-15-2002 11:23 PM
Thinking for a moment, Ramz came up with an alternative. "Ok, you get Calias' head, but I get to cut it off"... damnit, he must think I'm some sicko Ramz thought. With a smile and a nod, Wraith agreed to the terms. Both now turned to the Vampire, whom was looking paler than usual. Using his ki powers again, Ramz made himself superhumanly stronger, and more resistant to attack, while using the force to quicken his pace. Dashing toward the vampire, sword drawn, Ramz attacked, while Wraith conveniently vanished without a trace, they fought for only second with Ramz already gaining the upper hand on the weakened Vampire. Calias seeing this, shot forth a blast or pure darkness. Unprepared for such a quick attack, Ramz was struck in the midsection, the darkness impaling him on a Tree ten meters away. It was a shadow blade. Smirking, Calias waved his hand and the dark blade vanished, dropping Ramz to the base of the tree.
"Hmhmhmhmhahaha, fool you were never a match for one such as me, now I will drain you blood from you're lifeless body!"
Suddenly, while Calias was gloating from his kill, Wraith appeared behind him, grabbing onto his face, while draining the vampire’s energies. In a shriek of pain and anger, Calias threw his blade into the closest tree, vanishing out of Wraith's grasp to the hilt of the sword. "You will NOT do that again! I will suck my power back from you after I deal with the dead ninja!" Calias said, pointing at Ramz's corps… but to his shock, the corps was not there, in fact, it was nowhere to be seen!
Seething with anger, Calias again faced the ghost man, "What have you done with his body!" he screamed, while darkness swirled around him. Wraith had no answer for the vampire, he didn't see Ramz's body vanish either, which didn't really matter to him, he knew Ramz was still alive, somewhere in the trees… he is immortal after all. Wasting no time, wraith charged at Calias, blasting him with flame and lightning, while the vampire tried desperately to defend with his shadow magic. Failing miserably, some of Wraith's more powerful blasts struck true, injuring the vampire further. He was close now.
With his last ounce of power, Calias abandoned his defense tactic, and stared using his power to battle Wraith. "You fool, you're power is all but drained, attacking me will get you no where, only closer to death!" Wraith yelled over the noise of the battle, shooting a spear of flame, it hit the Vampire’s shoulder and knocked him back against the tree; while one of Calias' dark blades, cut across Wraith's thigh, and pierced his Kevlar armor, cutting into flesh.
Calias lifted his battered body, with the help of the tree, while Wraith easily picks himself up after covering his wound. Both stared at each other, and waited for one to make a move, Calias going for his magical blade, while Wraith powered up another elemental blast.
Suddenly, swinging up-side-down while his legs were wrapped around the tree branch, Ramz appeared right in front of Calias' face, before the vampire could raise his sword in defense, Ramz swiftly beheaded the weakened Calias, killing him, and finishing the battle.
The mist came, and Ramz got the vampires quickening. Trees burst into flame, and toppled over from the bolts of the Calias’ life energies. When it ended, Ramz went to pick up his sword, which by the look of it, wasn't going to be very useable. Dropping it, Ramz turned to the Vampires blade, which even through the battle looked as if it were forged only seconds before. The blade was too massive for his tastes, but perhaps he could get some cash out of it. Picking it up, the blade suddenly morphed into a smaller, more maneuverable Broad sword. Shocked and pleased by this, Ramz tried to will the blade into one of his liking, a Katana, again to his surprise it worked! "maybe I won’t sell it after all..." Ramz thought turning to Wraith, "I'm keeping this by the way" he said, Wraith looked at him, and shrugged. He was already putting the head in a bag, ready to depart......

The top of the building is quite and dark to both normal senses and my mind. Ahead lights spilled up from the sky light in the building central auditorium.
Inside I could feel the babble of minds many in barely restrained panic. I reached the edge of the shadows and stopped.
"one in position" I think into my psi comm.
"two in position"
"three in position"
"four in place" Everybody's ready it 's time to move.
I was on the roof of a major american company whose name I never do find out. Inside a large group of super powered terrorists who attempting to rob the place and get money for there hostages. According to our Intel there were at least sixteen supers and a two dozen "normal" thugs.
telekinetic accelerates my jump as I leap high and then crashed through the sky light garbing the shards with my mind as I go down, I hurling them at a group of guards on the balcony apparently they thought being away from the hostages would make them easy to cover. It did. It also makes them an easier target.
Men drop as glass flayed across them, most of the glass is going only about as fast as an assault rifle bullet but two piece, one aimed for each of the super humans on the balcony, are going at low relativistic speed. Both men where slapped of there feet and hammered into the nearest wall screaming from the impact of very small, very hot and very fast objects.
I hit the floor, I had used TK to damp the speed of decent and so have enough balance to dodge the light saber aimed at my head by the nearest Super villain. what was it with Supers and Light Sabers? I ignite my own psi sword to block the next cut then punched the guy in the cheats with my TK, there is a crunch of ribs breaking and the mr. Jedi was thrown across the room.
Talking of Jedi, my own sense (though I'm no force user intuitive combat and sixth sense give the same effect) warn me of approaching danger, I fanatically dodge out for cover as a mook with Cheap cybernetics and a rail gun opens up at me from next to the fire exit at the other end of the auditorium. he doesn't get chance for a second shot, James (the world knows him as Portal) tags him with a pair of plasma gun shots from his firing position near the roof. James wouldn't seem to be the most useful super to have in a fight (considering his abilities are dimension walk, environmental immunity and perfect memory.) but the guys loaded down with enough extra D tech to take the army of several third world country ( an action for which it has been used in at least two occasions).
I don't get to see the borg fall some thing grabs me from behind and slams me into the floor had enough to hurt through immutability and body armour. I reverse my psi sword and slam it back into my assailant then use TK to throw him of as he lets go. the guys big and well rocky he appears to be made of the decorative stone facing that adorns so much of this building obviously he a matter adapter. Currently he's holding his guts where I slashed him. Porter doesn't give him time to recover the guy goes down in the electro wash of a paralysis bolt.
For a moment the room is clear of enemies. I as I hurry the hostages out using my psi power to get those in shock moving I a part of my mind observes who the other two members of the team are doing.
the vault room is quite except for the sizzling of a pyrokinetic cutting through a bank vault. 3 more super humans and a dozen mooks half of them with obvious (and obviously cheap) cyberware stand around the door. the Mooks and super villains chatter ideally it shouldn't take to long to get into the vault and then they will all be rich.
One mook whose name is jimmy looked down as there there is a small clink by his foot. For a second he stares in incomprehension then hurls him self side ways screaming "GRENADE!" at which point the screamer grenade goes of taking out the three near by mooks and Slams poor jimmy into the nearest wall.
three more grenades slam roll into the room and the terroist find out how terrible it is to be in a confined space with a sonic weapon.

Sometimes I dream of escape. But I don't tell the doctors. They wouldn't like that. They say that I have to stay here because I'm dangerous. Too dangerous for the real world. Sometimes I believe that. That's why my parents put me here after all. Because they were scared of me. Scared that I would go crazy. And hurt them..........
I would never do that. On purpose. But it scares me that I might do it by accident. That's why I have to be good and never use my.. powers.. I have to be good. Have to be good.
They tested me again today.. The bad test. It always hurts. But it needs to be done. I need to be good and not use my.. powers.

It was the grand opening of Legends, the new superhuman-themed restaurant, and the stars had come out to watch. It was a media frenzy as celebrities and regular Angeleno's alike thronged outside to watch the ceremony and then go in once it was open. Everything was set. All that was left was for the entrepeneur behind this venture, the world famous Superstar, to show up and then the festivities could begin.
Then a gate opened up behind the podium set up for the occaision, and the man everyone was waiting for emerged. Flashbulbs exploded like supernovae as cameras focused on the guest of honor. Superstar walked up to the mike, while the gate closed behind him.
Hello everybody! Glad you all could make it to the grand opening of the first of what me and my partners hope will be a large and successful chain. By giving people what they want, good food and super hero ambience, we hope to become one of the most...
Suddenly, Superstar was interrupted by a glowing man flying out of the sky and hovering before the crowd
"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, FOR TOO LONG THE CORRUPT LEADERS OF MEGA-CORPORATE AGRIBUSINESS HAVE DESPOILED THE EARTH BY ENCOURAGING THE CONSUMPTION OF MEAT WHEN AN ALL VEGETARIAN DIET IS CLEARLY MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY! TO THIS I SAY NO MORE!
"BY DESTROYING THIS NEWEST EXAMPLE OF DIETARY EXCEESS, I STRIKE A BLOW AGAINST THE ENTIRE COMMERCIAL FOOD INDUSTRY! LET THIS BE THE FIRST SHOT OF THE REVOLUTION!"
And with that the figure waved his hand, sending a bolt of lightning hurtling toward the restaurant. Just before it impacted a gate opened up in front of it, redirecting it to behind the floating figure, where it harmlessly impacted against an invisible forcefiled and illuminated it with an errie blue aura.
"FOOL! I AM THE MASTER OF ELECTROMAGNETISM! I CAN NOT BE HARMED BY MY OWN BLASTS!"
True, but it did reveal the perimeter of your forcefield, allowing me to do this!
Just then Superstar's arm lashed out in front of him into a small gate which immediately formed, allowing his fist to emerge right at crotch level to the figure. The man instantly doubled over in pain. A second blow from Superstar's other fist smacked the would-be destroyer right in the face. The man suddenly stopped floating and fell to the ground unconscious. Immediately police swooped in and tranked up the villain to make sure he stayed that way, then took him away. All through it all cameras remained rolling to broadcast and record the action.
"Right, now that the sideshow's over, let's get this party started! I declare Legend's officially open!"
And there was much rejoicing.

the city didn't look like the last time I had been here, on a publicity stunt about a half a year ago.
for one thing last time half the building weren't burning, and there wasn't the crunched remains of a half dozen T-80 tanks littering the streets. Among the burning vehicles bodies and bits of bodies lay
"god..... " Paul muttered" one person did this?"
I knew how Paul felt who ever the hell this guy was he was seriously powerful and Seriously insane by the look of things.
"ok James your on damage control evac every one you can and put out fires etc you know the drill. Every one else lets cap this bastard before he does any more damage"
on in the near distance there was a detonation as if to underline my last words.
As my team mates and I powered down the street on our enhanced mobility packs I deployed several nano spy's forward to look for our foe. he wasn't hard to find just follow the gun ships.
"some ones been on an of world shopping spree" Sara commented over the team link as the nano spy reported.
They guy on the nano spy image looked to be at least 50% implants his legs had been replaced with heavy looking bionics they had talons mounted the heels and long claws on the toes, from the scrapes they where making in the pavement hey had to be mono molecular, vibro or other wise enhanced. The rest of the guys body was partially covered in some kind of support frame no doubt to stop the implants from tearing right out of his skin, a bulge of a under skin bio computer in his chest ready to pump him full of drugs at a moments notice, two very large guns linked to the support structure with cables running from them up to his head, Aberrant eyes burning behind a pair of duke Nukem Shades and a pair of computer controlled tri barrel power guns shoulder mounted and a back pack mounted missile launcher to finish it all of.
"oh sh*t" I muttered.

Receptionist: Ah, Mr. Ramz and Mr. Yeoman, the boss is ready to see you now.
They both got up and walked into a large and sumptuously appointed office with a fabulous view of the skyline. Standing behind the bar was the man whose decision they awaited, the world famous Superstar.
Superstar: Hey guys. Either of you want a drink?
After hearing their answers, Superstar obliged them by making anything they requested. Drinks went from his hands straight into theirs.
Right now. I don't see any reason to keep either of you in suspense. After reviewing all the data and reports on you two my people have provided me, I've concluded you both are acceptable risks. I'll take you guys where you want to go.
Anyway, I'm already packed, so whenever you guys are ready we can depart. I'll stop by Khazan first since it's on the way, then I'll go to the Marvel Universe Cluster. Sound good to everyone?

A doorway shimmered into existence in the middle of the room, and beyond could be seen a gigantic arena surrounded by a fantastic cityscape
"Well, there's Khazan. After you, gentlemen."

we crouched behind a wall in Warsaw ahead of use a crazed cybered super human was cheerfully destroying the city.
" ok I'll distract him and try to knock out his non implanted weapons, you both know the drill for cybered supers. Lets do it."
I drew my guns ( a nice pair of judge dread law givers effected to my hand print) and leapt side ways putting TK behind the leap to boast it to super human levels as I left cover I snapped of two shots at the guys guns, he dodged fast not quite fast enough and I clipped the mag of gun number 1 the detonation took his arm of up to the elbow.
the guy screamed and the arm started to grow back the man looked my way and his sunglasses vaporized as quantum bolts slammed into the area where I had stood a moment ago, thank gods for intuitive combat.
At which point my enemy was very surprised to have both his powers and implants go off line.
he blinked for a second as Sara Paul and I advanced on him.
Then he regained his senses enough to hit a control on his belt (apparently his gear was magic shielded why he hadn't got his implants proofed as well I have no idea) the was a WHOMP of air and he vanished the hole in the dimension he left stayed put and began to pore out zerglings.

The scene in the doorway shimmered and then changed to that of just in front of the Wakandan Embassy.We'll stop here first, and if you can't buy a suit from Wakanda we'll try our luck on Future Imperfect Marvel Earth and salvage you one.
"And with that Superstar stepped through and waited for Ramz to follow."
