<Star> LAST ISSUE:
<Star> A-NEXT WAS CAUGHT IN A THREE-WAY BATTLE BETWEEN THE MAESTRO,
CHAMPIONS, AND THEMSELVES WHILE CROSS LANDED ON THE GAMMA BOMB WHICH HAD
A TIMER TICKING DOWN.
<Star> SCENE> THE BATTLE IS STILL GOING ON WHILE THE CAVE SEEMS
TO BE CRUMBLING AS CROSS FINDS THE GAMMA BOMB WITH STAR.
<Star> SIM START>
<Star> Hellion> ::fires multiple plasma blasts from her armor at
Mole Men:: Keep at it
<Goblin> ::wraps his cape over the big grey fool's head, pulling
back as hard as he can:: Yee ha! Ride 'em...oh hell! ::ducks a little to
avoid the wall::
<Cross> Star... get out of here... ::begins powering up a flame
<Star> oh right... and get my A-Next benifits pulled away from me?
<AmericanDream> ::frowns and engages several mole man, launching
in quite a few attacks::
<Cross> No.. I mean... get everybody out so I can detonate the bombs
<Star> Maestro> ::keeps slamming Titan into a wall::
<Star> You know if you detonate it... it might contaminate the water
<IronMan> ::Hovers in the air, hands outstretched as he fires a
repulsor blast at the feet of Maestro::
<AmericanDream> ::eyes widen:: Titan!
<Afterburn> ::charges heat and fires a blast at Maestro::
<Firestorm> um... uh... ::looks around frantically:: Die!!! ::fires
a blast at mole men:: Please? Or at least give up nicely?
<Cross> And kill me in the process ::shrugs::
<Titan> MrMaestro GAHH! , sir, GAHHH! if you could maybe elaborate
GAHH! on this GAHH! Grail thing?
<Star> ACTION> A BOOMING VOICE CALLS OUT FROM THE ENTRANCE
<Star> Omen> I know all about Grail. A-Next I need your help.
<AmericanDream> ::whirls around in the direction of the voice::
<Patriot> ::throws his shield, aimed at some of the Mole Men::
<Goblin> ::wraps his arms around teh grey monster's neck and holds
on for deer life:: this is why i never wanted to be a cowboy!!
<Star> Maestro> Shut up.... ::blinks:: what?
<Star> ACTION> A MUSCULAR MAN IN CLOAK WALKS INTO THE CAVERN AND
EASILY BLOCKS ALL THE ATTACKS AT HIM
<Titan> ::blinks:: Good. . ::shrinks down and tries to creep past
everyone to get to omen::
<AmericanDream> how can we help?
<Cross> ::stops charging up the flame blast and glances around::
<Star> ACTION> MAESTRO CHARGES OMEN IN A RAGE AND IS ACTUALLY STUNNED
BY OMEN'S PUNCH
<Star> Maesto> Oh... that one's going to leave a mark... how can
anyone be that strong and not be me?
<Star> Omen> The fighting must cease. ::teleports away as do the
rest of the A-Nexters::
<AmericanDream> It's called diversity..::walks past Maestro::
<Star> ACTION> THE WHOLE TEAM FIND THEMSELVES ON A TECHNOLOGICALLY
ADVANCED CRAFT OF SOME KIND
<Cross> ::blinks:: But... the bombs...
<Goblin> Ack! ::kicks his legs and swings his arms as the big monster
isn't there anymore, then falls on his butt::
<Star> Cross will you just try to defuse it!! ::looks around:: this
doesn't look so...cavey
<AmericanDream> ::Frowns and looks around:: What's this all about?
<Afterburn> ::scratches his head:: ((Oh boy, this is confusing me
::repeats over and over:: should have stayed at home))
<Firestorm> ...That worked ::blinks::
<Star> Omen> Welcome to my ship.
<Star> Omen> And the inferior bomb is in stasis.
<AmericanDream> Why did you bring us here?
<Titan> It's about Grail. ::to omen:: So who are you?
<Star> How Star Trekie..
<Goblin> Oof! ::stays sprawled out on the floor for a moment:: Thank
you.. nice place.. love it.. ::groans::
<Patriot> ::glances around:: ((Whoa...)) ::turns back towards Omen::
<Star> Omen> I am Omen... the last Omnian. A race created
by Galactus to be genticially superior to everything.
<Firestorm> ...at least you're not shy about it
<IronMan> ::Looks around, analyzing the area:: Superior, huh? Modest,
<Cross> ::blinks:: And... you need help from us?
<Titan> Well that must be fun for you. So who is this Grail person?
<Star> Omen> I am the last after Earth's Avengers and Galactus destroyed
<Star> Avengers... but they've been like disbanded for a long time
<AmericanDream> ::frowns to herself:: ((I dont think I read any
logs on that.))
<AmericanDream> ::glances over at Star for a moment::
<Goblin> ::stands up slowly, grabbing the wall for support:: Ow..
<Afterburn> ::sits indian style on the floor looking around::
<Star> Omen> You are welcome to explore the ship... it has sleeping
departments and a kitchen. We are now 1,000 earth miles away from
<Star> ::blinks:: Whoa...not quite Kansas then
<Firestorm> ::perks up:: Kitchen?
<AmericanDream> I'm failing to understand why we're here..
<Titan> Omen, who is Grail?
<Star> Omen> For the final battle... the End War.
<Star> ACTION> A GRAVELLY VOICE TALKS FROM BEHIND THEM
<IronMan> And exactly what do you need us, for? ::Lands:: What's
this End War?
<AmericanDream> End War..
<Patriot> ::raises a 'brow slightly:: The End War?
<Cross> A kitchen? Man... we haven't eaten anything decent in a
loooooooooong ti-::stops, turning to look at Omen::
<Star> Thanos> Grail...would be my ever-loving offspring.
Greetings, children. ::grins::
<AmericanDream> ::raises an eyebrown, her frown furthering:: ((Thanos..what
trickery is this?!)) ::glares at Thanos::
<Goblin> ::stops, staring at Thanos:: That.. he.. Tha.. ohh... hill...
<Cross> ::steps back away from Thanos::
<Star> Thanos> You most likely don't know me... unless your parents
told stories of me to scare you at night.
<Star> ::blinks:: What's wrong with his chin?
<Firestorm> ::glances backward:: ((Why can't anyone ever have good
news? Or... at least news I understand?)) ::vague smile at
Thanos:: Who are you?
<Star> Omen> I shall rest now, master.
<Patriot> ::backs up, unstrapping the shield off his back::
<Star> Thanos> Oh yes... do rest.
<AmericanDream> What's your involvement in this Thanos?
<Cross> ::looks from Thanos to Omen, raising an eyebrow:: Why do
you need our help?!
<Star> Thanos> I am from Titan. And Grail is my half-kree
son bent on destroying the universe to recreate a new one to his likings
<Goblin> ::slowly starts to back towards one of the exitting corridors::
<IronMan> Thanos..::Blinks, staring open mouthed at him:: ((Shit..this
guy's enough to have scared Thor..))
<Star> Grail... happens to have... power on his side.
<AmericanDream> That makes sense..but why not handle him yourself?
You must be very powerful..
<Star> Thanos> Right. Surprising how much you know little
<IronMan> ::Blinks, looking strangely at Thanos:: You mean..he's
more powerful than you?
<Titan> ::walks up to thanos:: If Grail is your spawn, Thanos, who
is his mother?
<Star> uhh... ::blinks:: I don't even know where that came from.
<AmericanDream> ::nods:: A kree woman?
<Star> Jess> And how do we know this isn't a lie right now?
<Star> ::jumps looking behind her to see Jessica there::
<Firestorm> ::lost expression:: Will someone explain to me who this
<AmericanDream> Because if Thanos called us..it must be dead
<Afterburn> ::leans against something and looks up ignoring whats
<Cross> ::turns to face Jess, eyes narrowing then turns back to
<Goblin> ::slips into one of the corridors, turning around and heading
away from them:: ((Scope out some alien tech..))
<Star> Thanos> I'll straight talk you. Grail has sucked the
strength from your Juggernaut... and... he has captured the Phoenix
Force essence. Once he has accessed it... we are doomed.
<Star> Jess> Interesting.
<AmericanDream> ::frowns:: And how are we to stop him? Those
powers are infinite almost..
<IronMan> ::Crosses his arms, frowning:: That..doesn't sound good
<Cross> ((Yeah... he'll talk straight... to Jess))
<Firestorm> ..Phoenix force? That I know at least...
<Titan> ::frowns and strokes his chin:: How close to earth is Grail
and what is his purpose there?
<Goblin> ::stops at a set of doors:: Hmmm... maybe something in
here.. Just.. open sesame?
<Star> Thanos> You need your rest. ::leaves:: I suggest you
<Star> ACTION> THE DOOR OPENS UP LEADING TO A HALL FULL OF OTHER
ROOMS AND A KITCHEN
<Titan> ::frowns:: We need to know what we're up against and how
to stop it
<Star> Jess> Of course we're going to need to put together a plan.
<AmericanDream> ((so many questions..I do not know if we're up for
this..after all I've heard of not just the Juggernaut..but the Phoenix
Force..)) ::frowns in deep thought and heads into one of the rooms::
<Star> Are you that crazy? ::glares at Jessica:: We're NOT your
team anymore... or have you forgotten?
<Cross> ::walks away from the group, heading to look for the kitchen::
<Goblin> D'oh... no lab type deal. ::turns and keeps going down
<IronMan> ::Armors down:: ((Food soungs rather good, right now..I
have a feeling I'm gonna need my strength..))
<Star> ::bumps past Jess:: don't even know how you tagged along.
<Firestorm> ::glances at the others then runs after Cross:: Where're
<Star> ACTION> THE KITCHEN IS STOCKED UP WITH JUNK FOOD OF ALL THINGS.
<Cross> Away from Jess... to try and find the kitchen.
<AmericanDream> ::sighs and sits down on the floor, gathering her
<Afterburn> ::stares at titan::
<Firestorm> Great idea ::smiles::
<Goblin> ::quickens his pace down the corridor, looking for another
set of doors:: ((ComeonComeon.. not many chances like this..))
<Cross> ::runs a hand through his black hair:: Why's she even here,
<Star> ::walks to the kitchen area and hops on the counter and opens
a bag of chips::
<Star> Like I know...
<Titan> ::taps on his helmet, thinking::
<Star> I have a really bad feeling about this mission.
<Cross> ::opens what appears to be a fridge::
<Titan> ::looks around for a computer terminal::
<Star> there's some massive cloak guy... some massive purple guy
and we're supposed to take on someone even worse?
<AmericanDream> ::pulls off her mask and comes back into the room
and gives Jess a harsh glare:: How did you manage to tag along with us?
<Firestorm> ::shrugs:: I don't know... I seem to be missing a lot
today... I think it's food deprivation ::eyes go wide and snatches a bag
of chips and a can of pop:: ..soon to be resolved
<Star> Jess> I founded A-Next... fitting that I tag along wouldn't
you say? They said they needed A-Next.
<Goblin> ::breaks into a run, seeing another door, skidding to a
stop in front of it:: Uhhh... open up!
<IronMan> ::Enters the kitchen, grabbing a bag of potato chips::
If Thanos is enough to scare Thor..and HE'S scared..I really don't have
a good feeling about this..
<Star> Jess> And you'll need me. Pym is smart... but he doesn't
have the killer instict to succeed.
<AmericanDream> You separated from them after you formed your own
<AmericanDream> Just like your mother arent you?
<Star> Jess> ::glares at Dream:: You don't even have the slightest
idea of who I am.
<AmericanDream> If it werent for this mission and the seriousness
it demands..you wouldnt be coming back to Earth with us..
<Star> ACTION> OMEN WALKS INSIDE THE KITCHEN AND WATCHES THE HUMANS
<Goblin> Aggg... ::kicks the door, wincing and hopping back on one
<AmericanDream> ::gives her an equally cold glare:: I know more
about you than you think..obviously..as I just struck a nerve.
<Firestorm> ::pauses with a chip half-way to her mouth and eyes
<Star> Jess> ::smiles coldly:: My... was that a threat? Coming
from Captain America's daughter of all people?
<Titan> ::finds a terminal and tries to access thanos's database::
<Star> Jess> ::walks past Dream::
<Star> ACTION> TITAN ISN'T ABLE TO LOG ON BECAUSE OF THE ALIEN LANGUAGE
ON THE SCREEN
<AmericanDream> ::rolls her eyes and walks into the kitchen, muttering::
<Goblin> ::presses the panel next to the door:: Openopenopenopen
<Star> Omen> I have not seen many humans in my lifetime.
<Afterburn> ::blinks and walks up to star:: Whats going on? I kinda
missed the whole plan and stuff
<IronMan> ::Eyes Omen:: Well, can't say I've seen one of you, before,
so that makes us sorta even
<Star> ACTION> THE DOOR DOESN'T OPEN AND DECLARES IT IS OFF LIMITS
<Titan> ::punches the wall:: Damnit. . ::drops his head::
<Cross> ::glances to Omen then walks over and offers his hand::
<Star> ::takes her mask off:: You guys ever get really scared?
<AmericanDream> ::comes into the kitchen and looks around, her expression
very annoyed and takes a glass and fills it with a drink, then sits down
and slams her glass down on the table somewhat::
<Star> Omen> ::looks at him oddly and extends his hand and shakes
it:: It is a pleasure.
<Patriot> ::enters the Kitchen::
<Goblin> Jackpot! ...now what? ::looks around, calling out as a
test:: Thanos? Yoohoo? Wouldn't happen to be around, would ya?
<Star> ACTION> A HAND TOUCHES GOBLIN'S SHOULDER
<Cross> ::nods:: I apologize for whatever the old Avengers did,
I hope that we can make it up to you.
<Goblin> ::stands straight up, startled:: ((Oh shi..)) ::turns around
<Firestorm> ::weak smile at Omen:: Wanna chip? Well... i spose
::takes a breath and smiles again:: ((Ok... he hasn't eaten Cross or anything...))
<Star> Omen> ::looks at him:: My people were going to start a univeral
genocide... I'm afraid your Avengers were right to stop us. I have
learned the errors of our ways.
<AmericanDream> ::takes a sip of her drink, glaring around for a
moment, then looking down at the content of her drink::
<Star> Omen> No... thank you. I don't need food...or oxygen.
<Star> Jess> You look lost Goblin.
<Patriot> ::gets something to drink::
<Titan> ::perks up and starts a search for thanos's private quarters::
<Firestorm> oh... sorry ::rubs the back of her neck::
<Star> Jess> Before you insult me as you always have... how has
Star been? Any major errors? Human?
<IronMan> ::Crosses his arms:: So, how bad is this threat, Omen?
<AmericanDream> ::stands up and extends her hand to Omen:: I know
you have probably heard of my father..I am Shannon Carter.
<Star> Omen> Perhaps the worse this universe has had to face in
it's entire creation.
<Goblin> Gah! ::groans:: ((Not him..)) Not lost. ::points a thumb
at the door:: Want to go in there. And you don't know me anymore. Star's
<Star> Omen> ::nods:: I have no name... I am just Omen.
<Star> Jess> ::smiles:: Is she..
<AmericanDream> It is a pleasure to meet you..even if in such an
<IronMan> Great..Juuust great. ::Mutters slightly:: And it had to
happen the night I needed to study for a History final..
<Star> Omen> I wasn't expecting some... warmth from humans..
<Star> ::sighs:: What test... didn't you hear we're all going to
<IronMan> Oh, and I'm Terry, BTW. ::Nods to Omen::
<Star> atleast I can eat a ton of junk food and not have to worry
<AmericanDream> Not all are as harsh as Miss..Stark..
<Goblin> Yes. ::punches the control panel a few more times:: ((Open
dammit.)) Why should you care?
<Star> Omen> Yes... I see
<Star> Jess> It won't open... Thanos is too smart for that.
<AmericanDream> What do you know about this Grail, Omen?
<Titan> ::wanders into a sophiticated hall closet:: ((My sense of
direction needs work. . .))
<AmericanDream> Do you know the identity of his mother? Was
she an important Kree possibly?
<Goblin> And too stupid to realize if his power isn't enough ours
won't be without a little boost? Namely some alien tech.. ::glares:: Or
maybe we'er just cannon fodder for somethign he needs to pull off without
<Star> Omen> Grail was born during the Kree/Shi`ar war... his mother
was a normal kree woman and she raised Grail to be a Kree warrior... and
was often cruel to him. When he was aged to 14 he murdered her in
<Star> Jess> And Grail?
<Star> ::blinks:: that's harsh..
<AmericanDream> And any idea what's spurned him on this quest to
end all life?
<Star> Omen> Grail soon started his own religion... he had many
followers and hired mercanaries to find powerful artifacts for him to use
in destroying the universe... and creating a new one.
<Goblin> Grail will kick our butts and I don't care how egotistical
you are, you know none of us got the power. We wouldn't have even been
able to take down Maestro. Yet.. Thanos wants our help. We're expendable.
::smirks, giving up on the door::
<Cross> ::walks over to FS:: How's it feel... you just come back...
and blam, here you are, fighting some big intergalactic baddy.
<Star> Omen> I have teamed with Thanos because he happens to want
to rule the Universe himself... not have his own flesh and blood destroy
<Star> Omen> You should all rest. We have a battle before
us soon. ::nods to all of them and leaves the kitchen::
<IronMan> ::Crosses his arms:: Right..
<Titan> ::comes across a really big door, puts two and two together,
and knocks:: THANOS?!
<Star> Jess> Perhaps..
<Firestorm> ::munches on a chip:: It's... weird. ::shrugs::
It'd still feel weird even if i'd been here for months tho, I'd think...
::looks at him::
<AmericanDream> ::sighs and goes back into her room and sits down
on the head::
<Star> ACTION> THERE IS NO ANSWER... SEEMINGLY THE ONLY PEOPLE LEFT
IN THE AREA IS A-NEXT
<Cross> Can I have a chip? Or would I lose a hand if I tried to
reach for one? ::smirks::
<Goblin> And don't tell me Jess that you're not at all interested
in scoping out some the technology in this place to use to enhance your
own. Cuz you know as well as I do to even stand a chance to survive we're
gonna need more than what we have right now.
<Star> I think I'm going to get some sleep... ::heads for a room::
<Firestorm> ::holds out the bag:: I don't bite ::smirks slightly::
<Star> Jess> Maybe we can't win for once. ::leaves the area::
<Titan> ::punches the wall again and heads back to wherever we were
<Cross> Aww, darn. ::chuckles and grabs some chips::
<AmericanDream> ::sighs and closes her eyes:: ((I've got to
think..there's got to be some way to figure out this Grail..))
<IronMan> ::Looks at Titan:: What's wrong, high pockets?
<Goblin> I said survive, not win. ::looks over the door again::
WHere's Thanos at anyway?
<Star> ::enters her room and turns on a light and gasps seeing Jess
waiting there:: What do you want from me?
<Star> Jess> Claudia... thought you'd be happy to see me again.
<Titan> Wrong doesn't begin to explain it
<Star> Why would I be? ::glares at Jess::
<Star> Jess> You don't remember... odd... memory banks need work.
<Star> Shut up! ::throws a punch at her::
<AmericanDream> ::tries to focus her concentration, then gets up
and sighs, leaning her head against the wall::
<Star> ACTION> A LOUD CRASH IS HEARD THROUGHOUT THE QUARTERS AS
JESS IS SLAMMED INTO THE HALLWAY WALL FROM THE PUNCH
<Goblin> ::walks into the kitchen, grumbling:: Greetings fellow
<IronMan> ::Turns towards the fight::
<Firestorm> ::blinks:: Now who's attacked?
<AmericanDream> ::growls:: What is this?!::jumps outside and glares
<Cross> ::nods to Gob:: Hello to you too, oh green one
<Star> ACTION> JESSICA BLOCKS THE NEXT PUNCH WITH THANKS TO HER
BATTLE SUIT AND GRABS STAR'S HAND
<Star> Jess> This will get us no where Claudia!
<Titan> Maybe this will get his attention
<Cross> ::heads for the fight::
<AmericanDream> ::growls, spotting Jess:: Put..her..down..now..
<Star> ::pivots her foot and sends her knee into Jess's midsection
breaking a couple ribs on contact::
<Star> Jess> Ah! ::falls over::
<Goblin> Be nice if Thanos showed up about now.. ::watches the fight::
<AmericanDream> ((that's my girl..))::runs over to pin Jess::
<Star> ::gets ready to throw another punch at Jess::
<IronMan> ::Sighs:: Ladies, ladies, please.
<AmericanDream> Back down Star..
<Titan> ::to anyone who'll listen:: Where's Omen?
<Cross> ::glances from Star to Jess::
<Star> You didn't... ::starting to cry:: I won't ever accept that!
<Firestorm> ::stops at the fight, eyes widening slightly::
<AmericanDream> ((Oh god..))::gets up and comforts Star:: What?
<Star> Jess> ::coughs a little blood:: YOu have to... I'm the one
who created you Star... I did it..
<Star> ::clings to Dream:: tell me this isn't real...
<AmericanDream> ::glares at Jess, then back at Star:: You dont have
to listen to her
<Goblin> I just got here. ::shrugs, sitting back in a chair and
grabbing an open bag of chi[s:: She wha..? ::nearly chokes on a chip::
<Cross> ::claps for Jess:: Congrats... you created a person who
has more compassion and will be more human than you could ever be, Jessica.
<Star> Jess> ::standing up:: I created you when I was 13.
<AmericanDream> You're your own person Star. It doesnt matter
what your origin is.
<AmericanDream> Unlike this cold hearted bitch..you're a kind compassionate
person..you'll never be like her.
<Star> Jess> Your skeleton was from some alien metal my father found...
I had some skin tissue which was used to even age...
<Firestorm> ::bites her lip and looks at Jess:: ((Yikes... how rotten...
but she's hurt... why's everyone being so mean?))
<Star> Jess> She is our secret weapon people! She has the
potential to win this war
<Goblin> ::walks into the hall with the others, still coughing::
<Star> ::crying into Dream's shoulder::
<AmericanDream> ::growls:: She's a person! Not some weapon!
<Cross> Come on Jess, let's get you patched up before you cause
<Star> Jess> That is her greatest weakness... she thinks she's human.
<IronMan> Wait..Alien metal..
<IronMan> ::Frowns, fingering his medallion::
<AmericanDream> ::pulls Star closer and sighs::
<Firestorm> ::sighs:: ((ok, so maybe nothing can hurt that... err...))
<Star> ACTION> THE WHOLE PLACE IS STARTING TO SHAKE LIKE IT HIT
<AmericanDream> ((IS there never a calm moment..)) What's going
<Cross> ::pauses:: What metal? Vibraniu- ::braces himself against
<Firestorm> ::gulps and braces against a wall:: Wha?? Aren't
we in space? Don't think there's a lot of trees and stuff to run
<Star> Jess> ::without even looking up:: We're being boarded.
I can tell.
<Goblin> Ack! ::falls over, sliding into the wall:: Mr Sulu! Open
your eyes.. ::groans::
<Star> ::sniffles:: are we under attack all ready?
<Titan> ::gets a headache:: And just how can you tell that Stark?
<IronMan> Ack..::Quickly armors up, using the wall to hold himself
<Goblin> The slut machine probably has scanner. ::stands up, jumping
on his glider::
<Star> ACTION> A DOOR BLOWS OPEN AS KREE SOLDIERS RUN IN WITH BLASTERS
FOLLOWED BY A 7 FOOT TALL ALIEN WOMAN AND GRUFF LOOKING MAN WEARING A TRENCHCOAT
OF SOME KIND.
<AmericanDream> Star? ::looks at her for a moment::
<Firestorm> Oh dear. ::eyes widen::
<Cross> ::glances to Jess:: Are you even human? Were you being overly
nice before because of a logic error from being in the fight with Ultron?
<Star> I'll be okay... we have company... ::gets into a fighting
