I think we are currently waiting on Spiderman's move. If he doesn't make a post by tomorrow, I will, so we can keep the game's flow going.

Spider-Man fires blasts of webbing at the blue skinned inhuman's mouth.

"Say it. Don't spray it"

He flips down to the floor. He looks at the teasparent  inhuman as he fires webbing at the doors to the room. The webbing may slow the purifiers and give the team time to leave.

"Yikes. I thought I was pale. They make this stuff called spray tan now. Normally I'd suggest the sun but you look like a peeler."

The blue furred one begins clawing at her mouth, but her hands get stuck into the web and is left cpmpletely tied up.

The transparent one reached her hands up and pulls shattering the walls of the apartment. The ceiling begins to faulter and looks like it's about to fall. At this point the transparent one looks to the three of you a grin across her face To slow.

Revanche begins heading up the stairs. She sees that the room to which the screaming was coming from had been webbed shut. At this point the building quakes and she realizes it's about to collapse onto her.

Out of nowhere all of you hear lasers and guns firing outside as if there is a war going on outside of the apartment you are currently in. It seems to be focused around the church. Those in the apartment can see flashes of light around the church, but in your current predicament you aren't sure what is causing those flashes.

With nothing terribly useful at hand to escape a collapsing building, Revanche triggered Magick's signal and went for the nearest window.  She dropped down onto a fire escape, hoping the steady metal frame might buy her a few more precious seconds of stability (and time for Magick to ready a teleportation spell).  Leaving the battlefield without the Terrigan irked her, but Revanche was nearly out of options.

Her other companions would be alright, surely.  Maybe the pair of them could still complete the mission...

As Revanche waits for Magik the building crumbles around her. It takes a couple of minutes where Revanche questions wether or not she trusts Magik's promise to come, but then a sigh of relief comes out of your mouth as you feel a hand on your shoulder. Then you take off traveling through the unexplainable void that allows time travel.

Revanche will continue back at "The New Xavier School" thread.

Spidey looks at the transparent inhuman in horror.

"Are you out of your mind? What about your friends?"

No time to pull everyone out of the building
No time for fancy moves
He swings his fist hard at the inhuman's face.

"What is wrong with you people, seriously?"

He'll need to knock her out quick to save the purifiers and his team from the collapse.

As the floor begins to give out Warpath grabs both Spidey and Shadowbourne under his arm and dives out the window. As they begin to fall he uses his flying ability to slow their decent so that by the time they hit the ground it's an easy fall. As they land Warpath sighs. Purifiers never change. Always too focused on their cause and never on the lives of their men.

The three of you land, and see the chaos around you. Robots attack the church using laser weapons to devastate the purifiers. The action seems to be focused on the entrance of the Church, so it would be difficult to get in that way.

Spidey clenches his fist as he watches the building fall.

"Let's get to that church. Someone has to put a stop to this madness."

He watches the cacophony of later fire.

"No going in the front. Want to crash in through the back window? Maybe we can get the drop on them."

As the three of you begin to head to the church your wristbands turn red, and Magik appears. First off Revanche is fine. I got her out. I'll be taking her place on this team.  If you want I can easily teleport us to the side of the church. I would rather not teleport us inside because I get the feeling they are more than a little armed in there.

Good to know she got out. Warpath said turning around to see the destruction the inhuman had caused to those she had considered her friends. He then turns to Shadowbourne. We need your help as well. We have a friend in there called Wolverine, and the people who tried to hold you are in possession of a dangerous weapon that uses the terrigan. We need to get wolverine back, and secure that weapon. Warpath glares into Shadowbourne's eyes trying to decide if he is up for the task.

The look on Anton's face is one of exhaustion, anger, and determination. As Warpath asks him if he would help, the look changes to one of sadness. His memories of James Proudstar all in the man's very violent death...the number of Sentinels he took with him was of epic proportions. The fact that Illanya had appeared as well simply drove home that Anton was not home anymore.

With an abrupt nod Anton replies," I can slide in unseen and unfelt...many forget their own shadows." With a series of stretches, Anton unlimbers. It is at this point the others can see that he has an unusual close resemblance to one of their teammates. While the coloring is different and his age is a little younger, Anton looks like he is a close relative to  Kurt Wagner, Nightcrawler. A lopsided grin lays across the familiar features, "I can retrieve the Old Man out from under their noses without them even noticing."

Alright Magik agrees. Wait here in gonna drop these two off to the side of the building so they can break in. Me and you will distract Stryker With that she grabs Warpath and Spiderman and is off.

Warpath and Spiderman are dropped off towards the back of the building. As they peer inside they notice that Purifiers are pouring out of the back of the church as if there is an endless supply. You can only assume that there is more to this church.

Magik pops back next to Shadowbourne. You ready to go?

Cocking his head to the left, Anton looks at Magik. The smile that parts his face is one that brings a slight creepy edge to it," Yes...I believe it is time to teach the Colonel why man is afraid of the dark. No?" As the shadows flow around his feet, Shadowbourne continues, "How do you want to do this? Your disks or my shadows? Or we could always do a two prong distraction..."

Up to you. Magik said. She knew what she would do, but for her this was Shadowbourne's audition to see if he could be trusted to do work like this in the future as a part of the X-men.

A frown plays across his face at Illanya's evasion. As quick as the frown formed, it was replaced yet another grin, "My shadows then myapa druuga(Russian for My Girl/Female Friend)" His hand reaches out to grasps Illanya's. Upon touch, the shadows at Anton's feet deepen as the pair seem to sink. When only shadows remain, a large pool of darkness speeds along the ground towards the building, then up and through a window.

Inside is a scene of chaos. Purifiers are scurrying about, Stryker is screaming, "I want a team over there now! Sweep the area...find out what happened!" Even as he orders the Purifiers, his hands are checking and clearing an oddly design rifle. With a backhand grab, he stops another Purifier, "Secure the other...make sure that one is not lost!"

Anton finds a small hallway off to the side that is currently unoccupied for him an Illanya to expand. Tail twitching like a cat's, "I got this..." there is a grim undertone to the statement that speaks of an anger that has not been quenched. Even as the last syllable leaves his lips, Anton melts down into a shadow again, leaving Magik in the hallway. At the same time, darkness deepens in the whole of the building with an abruptness that seems rude. Figures stop as an ancient instinct in them...The darkness comes...Hide, Run and Hide...Then the shadows of the Purifiers leap up and dart towards their owners. Instantly gunfire erupts as the first one panics and begins to fire at his own shadow...and across into another Purifier.

What had been chaos before became a maelstrom of lead and fear. And into that, another shadow springs forward...this one solid. Shadowbourne begins to attack one Purifier after another, sowing the chaos deeper and deeper. All the while, Anton has a malicious gleam in his face. They would feel his pain...they would know doom...they would know despair. They would understand.

She had wanted a distraction. This was that and more. This was why you never flaunted the darkness. No matter how much you beat it back, it was always out there. And it would return...Deeper and darker than ever before.

The distraction works. So well in fact that it reveals their hidden hallway. There is a wall in the back. On it a cross. The cross turns 180 degeees and then the wall turns 90 revealing a staircase. These purifiers charge out to go and fight whatever is killing their brothers.

At the same time Stryker closes his eyes. When he opens them it's as if the purifiers size has doubled. For every one Shadowbourne kills it's as if another two appear.

From the outside Shadowbourne's distraction has led to the robots achieving the upper hand. They flood in to the room unloading their laser at the already struggling purifiers. A more heavily armed robot shoots past cutting across the room and through the back wall. Spider man and Warpath can see that this robot is very different from the others. It carries a shield in one hand, and a sword/gun in the other. It seems to be of a higher quality than the others as it shoots down the staircase just ignoring the purifiers.

While Shadowbourne deals with the Purifiers, Magik begins teleporting back and forth between the robots dealing deadly blows with her sword, and slowing down their assault.

A dark flickering...Sweepkick, Wheelkick, Backflp, Dive...Anton shadowdives from shadow to shadow...Somersault, Shouldergrab, Mulekick Left, Slide into Shadow...enhancing the ephemeral into a temporary solidness...Slide under, Elbow to knee, Kick to Midsection, Front-Snap kick, Grab and Dive...long enough to deliver some damage. When the Purifiers multiply instantly, Shadowbourne hesitates. The lull in his assault is a mere heartbeat, but long enough to assess the change in conflict.

"Magik! Stryker is enhanced!" Still holding onto a Purifier he pulled through the shadows with him, Anton spins like an ice-skater and flings the disorientated goon back through the shadow at their feet, diving in right after...

The goon flies straight up into Stryker from his feet, knocking him off balance as Anton erupts from another shadow to the side into Stryker. Immediately the two begin to trade quick brutal strikes.

Spider-Man watches as the goons pour out of the back.

He sticks to the shadows and ceilings and creeps along the hallways of the church trying to locate wolverine. The sounds of the battle echoing throughout.

Warpath stays by Spiderman flying along the roof. The staircase leads down to what looks like laboratories. The laboratories have many glass containers that hold what you both assume to be mutants. Their veins have been turned to black. Spiderman knows that this isn't the usual effect of the Terrigan on inhumans. Perhaps it has been modified. As you walk deeper into the lab you find a glass container like the ones holding the mutants, except this one has been torn open. Peering inside you see lots of blood and two claw marks side by side. Spiderman has only seen one person make such marks. Wolverine. Following the trail of blood the two of you are led to a hole. As you peer up red robotic eyes stare down. Dozens of robots are making their way down this hole.

Attacking Stryker causes the newly appeared purifiers to vanish. Although you did catch him by surprise he has begun fighting back with surprising agility for a man of his age. You've ruined it all Stryker screams at you We were so close and yet the war against the demons never ends.

"Demons?!?!...DEMONS?" It was this line of thinking that lead to the creation of the Sentinel Program and the birth of the Sentinels. Anger blossomed in Anton and spread into every single strike. " We did not imprison people because they weren't like us"....low kick to knee, parry rifle butt, take knee to midriff... Uuugghhhfff.

"You are an ABOMINATION on humanity...you are a stain on our purity!"...rifle butt to chin, wrap strap around head, pivot and throw... "You must DIE!"

As Anton is thrown, he spins like a cat and sticks a three point landing...just in time to see Stryker rise the rifle to his shoulder and fire. Acting on instinct, the Xavier's Last Mutant rolls to the left and slings out a shadow under Stryker, which promptly sucks him downward.

Fast as he was, he did not escape the searing pain of the blast as it wings his left arm. A heartbeat later, Stryker falls out of a shadow near the ceiling of the church and slams into the scattered pews with a loud crash.

Like a bad film, Anton flickers across the church and is upon Stryker before he can recover. What happens next is like a scene from a Japanese horror movie. Blinking in and out of shadows, Shadowbourne continues to beat Stryker within an inch of his life. At one point, the energy rifle Stryker had been using comes sliding across the floor.

Then, as quick as it started, it stopped. The darkness deepens and the shadows curl about...Anton flows up and out of the shadows dragging an unconscious Stryker by his collar. Breathing hard, left arm dangling, bloodied and bruised he approaches Magik. "Trash...taken out." Swaying on his feet, Anton looks to Illyana.

The robots begin to pull out at around the same time as Shadowbourne takes Stryker out. As he approaches her she faces him a compassionate look and puts a hand on Shadowbourne's shoulder. I understand what you're feeling right now, and I know you're not gonna like what I'm about to say, but we can't finish him. We just can't. He would become a martyr  and we don't need more people hating our kind. She looks into your eyes trying to allow you to see the tough choice that must be made. Her hand reaches down and helps you let go of Stryker. Let's go get Spiderman and Warpath.

With a loud thump, Anton let's Stryker's body hit the floor. Cocking his head to the left, he first looks down at Stryker then back up at Illanya, " If I wanted him dead...you would have never seen him emerge from my shadows. I wouldn't leave a body."  The statement is cold and hard, no emotion waivers the timbre of his voice. " He isn't worth the complications his disappearance would warrant..."

The sly grin reappears as Anton spies the mass of shredded metal that used to be robots surrounding Magik, "Tech vs Magik...seriously?" He looks back at Illanya, trying to gage her response to the corny joke. Before she could properly respond, "Did they find Wolverine?"

She nods her head to Shadowbourne's words. Her eyes are filled with sadness, but his attempt at humor does start to return the light to her eyes. A faint grin plays across her face and she nods taking your hand. Time to find out.

With that the two of you vanish reappearing in the back of the church. She teleports the two of you again down the staircase where you come upon Warpath and Spiderman. The two of them are back to back. Exhaustion is plain across their faces. Robots lay in taters around them. As you approach you are informed that the robots had retreated. By the time they had got here Wolverine was already gone. Most of the facility had been caught in the cross fire, but you are able to secure a couple disks that are labeled as different experiments. You expect that you will be able to pull information off of these disks when you return to base.

When your quick search of the base is finished Magik teleports all of you back to the New Xavier school, and pulls Spiderman and Shadowbourne aside, and informs them that the job isn't done yet. It seems that these Robots are Ultrons. Why he wants the Terrigan and Wolverine we are unsure. What we do know is that the best chance we have in stopping him is by partnering up with Shield. I am going to teleport the two of you onto a Shield ship. From there you will join the push against Ultron where we will hopefully be able to recover both Wolverine, and the terrigan. Warpath and I will stay here and try to deal with Stryker's response. We should be able to stop him from getting any other mutants under his control. She pauses and hands Shadowbourne the disks with the experiments. Get these to Coulson. We have a tense relationship with Shield, but he is a good man. You can trust him. Alight you ready. Spiderman and Shadowbourne agree to go, and Magik teleports the two of you onto a ship. A helicarrier. A younger women greats you.

Hi, I'm Daisy. Welcome to the Battlecarrier. If you'll follow me. Coulson is waiting for you.

Continue in the Battlecarrier thread.
