The Alien, the Beast and the Broken City (Open RP - All Welcome)


Sang had been out of Metropolis for quite some time. He had spent the prior year training in the harshest environments the Earth had to offer. Sang decided to head back to Metropolis to see what has been going on but was shocked when he arrived. It seemed as though much of the JT had gone to Seattle to operate there for some reason. Things had certainly changed. Crime was up and the heroes who had remained in the city seemed to be quite busy as of late.

Sang landed atop the Lexcorp tower and peered around the city from the excellent vantage point. He concentrated a moment and reached out to sense for any high powered beings in the city that were currently active. He could not tell if those he sensed were hero or villain, but he could sense a lot of active power in the city. He bypassed the minor powers he sensed in favor of the much more powerful. After choosing one he took to the air and flew directly toward it.

What Sang did not know is that the beast known as Savage Void was also in the process of making his way back to Metropolis. He had not yet arrived but his arrival was eminent. The only question was, how much destruction would he create this time.

Re: The Alien, the Beast and the Broken City (Open RP - All Welcome)


(Hope you don't mind if I jump in. emoticon and I'm sorry it's kind of long.)

"You're money or you life, wench!" A man dressed in a long black cloak yelled to the woman before him. The pair were down a dark alley, where she had tried to take a short cut and gotten lost. The 24 year old shook with fear before the man, whose eyes were ablaze with hellfire. Before him was his outstretched hand, which was encased in the same burning light. He cackled as she opened her purse to pull out her wallet.

"You know, it's rather rude to demand money like that." A voice from the shadows chimed. It was that of a woman, light like the wind.

The man spun around and scanned the area, but saw no one. "Show yourself, coward. You dare attempt to stop me?! Have you no idea who I am?!"

"Tsk. You seem like a guy in way over his head. See if you were powerful, you wouldn't be cornering a young girl in a dark alley." The voice said from the shadows, this time on the other side of the man, closers to him. "You'd pick on someone you're own size."

He spun to catch the culprit, only to see nothing again. "Reveal yourself! Or face my wrath!"

A light laugh flowed all around him. "Alright, big guy... you win." The form of a woman walked into the low light of the alley. She appeared to be made up of the shadows that her voice came from. Her movements made her look like smoke as she walked towards the pair. Her short hair, skin, body, clothes and bare feet were all as black as soot. "Well? Smite me, then."

The man's look of astonishment changed to a mocking smirk as he shot fire from his hands. The fire rocketed towards the shadow creature, the light causing her to dissipate into nothingness. Before he could revel in his victory, the voice came again, right next to his left ear. "The brighter the light, the bigger the shadow."

In the blink of an eye, the man disappeared into the shadows, swallowed up with a yelp of surprise. The young woman ran from the alley way.

Megera watched her leave and smiled. Walking out of the alley, her shadowey form became solid in the bright sun light. She was a lovely woman, well endowed, with long black hair and pale skin. Her curves were hugged in a pencil skirt and business suit coat, with pumps on her feet. She pulled out a piece of paper and crossed a name off.

"You know, you'd think muggers and low-level criminals would just take a break and think about who exactly they're at risk of getting their skulls bashed in by, right?"

Flipside usually patrolled the city for fun, seeing as how it seemed there was at least one person around every corner who dropped out of school hard enough to think they could pull of muggings without consequence. Flipside had made their statement whilst sitting on the side of the wall a bit high up from where the crime was happening above the woman, holding a partially wrapped up fast-food burger as he bit into it.

He wore a slightly cheap looking skintight mask that covered everywhere except his eyes, one being purple, the other green. Part of the mask was purple, while the majority of it was green. With it, he wore a purple T-Shirt, a hoodie, baggy green pants, and purple cleats. He also had on a pair of finger-less gloves, as well as a baseball bat strapped to his back.

"Nice moves, lady." Obviously, Flipside must have some sort of gravitational abilities.

Re: The Alien, the Beast and the Broken City (Open RP - All Welcome)


(Not at all Welcome! It is an open story! Glad you both joined. emoticon ))

Sang’s small blue form slowed to a hover as he watched the shadow woman dispatch the would be mugger. He noticed the hamburger eating masked man as well after a moment. He was glad to see there were some heroes still patrolling Metropolis. He watched, folding his arms across his chest as the pair conversed a moment. That is when it hit him. His orange eyes began to glow brightly and his body began to shake slightly. His senses picked up a very strong power approaching the city quickly, before his eyes caught sight of it.

It was large, standing at least twelve feet in height. It had red skin and the glint of metal was easily recognized as the Metropolis sun reflected from it. The beast was in the air, seemingly having had jumped up into the air over a great distance. The form smashed through an office building sending concrete and metal debris to the ground below. The beast’s momentum carried it further until it landed on another building and released a horrible roar over the city. Though this creature was currently across town it leapt into the air again and was heading directly for the area where the three heroes were.

The creature destroyed anything it came into contact with. It crumbled the tops of buildings and crushed would be heroes that tried to stop it in its huge arms. Whatever this thing was, it was on a rampage and someone had to stop it.

Sang sank to street level and nodded at the woman and then up to the masked man. He knew they had heard the creature, everyone in Metropolis probably did, and he hoped they were ready. “It’s headed this way.” Sang muttered folding his arms across his chest again. Sang was short, very short, standing only 4’10”. He wore his dark blue hair in a spikey Mohawk which gave the illusion of him being taller. Though he did not look like much, he could certainly hold his own.

Meg stopped when she heard someone speak to her. Tucking the paper into her pocket, along with the red pen she used, he looked up to see who it was. She saw the purple and green clad guy, baseball bat on his back. She smiled, the grin barely wrinkling the corners of her cheek. "Well, a lady does what she can. Don't think of me as a bleeding heart, though. He had a nice bounty on his head." She said with a wink. "And who might you b-"

Before she could ask for an introduction, she heard the roar bellow through the city. Her eyes narrowed as she saw a creature, off in the distance, crashing through the city.

"It's headed this way." A new voice said. Turning toward it's direction, she saw a rather short man hovering off the ground, lowering his flight as he spoke.

"I really need to brush up on my covert operations..." She joked a bit. "What is it? What is the creature."

Flipside nearly fell off the wall as he landed on his feet, staring at the distance towards the red beast. "Hell if I know. Demon? Deformed red-hot candy?" He shrugged, before taking the baseball off of his back, seemingly grinning as he pulled the mask down. "Whatever the thing is, though, it's about to get some metal to the face." He looked to the two as he saluted them. "If you're not cowards, of course.. Last one there gets a three-course meal of my dust!" He suddenly looked as if he had been kicked off of his feet, falling to the side as fast as one would fall to Earth as he headed towards where the beast was.

Of course, at this point, he was above some of the buildings, watching the path of destruction, before skidding on a building in front of the beast's path. "Alright, big guy.." He angled his shot, predicting the timing of the beast's jumps, and aiming to hit it mid-air. "FORE!" He tossed up a baseball, increasing the gravitational pull of his arm so he hit the ball supernaturally hard as it went soaring towards hopefully where the beast's head would be as it started to touch down.

Sang watched as Flipside took off into the air toward the raging beast. He was not sure that was a wise choice, however, it was not his place to say. He turned his attention back to Megera. “I do not know what it is, however, it is immensely powerful.” He explained to her. His attention was again drawn to the raging beast.

The ball Flipside had sent speeding at the beast’s head hit right between the eyes. The creature’s forward momentum combined with the increased speed and density of the ball caused its head to swing back. The creature’s body followed and it sprawled down crashing through a building and into an adjacent one. Glass and concrete flew everywhere and for a moment it seemed as though the beast had been bested.

Several moments passed and the dust began to settle around the area. “I believe he angered it.” Sang said calmly. Seconds later the beast burst through the roof of the building where it had landed. Its body spun in the air and launched a large piece of concrete at Flipside with incredible speed. Upon landing it sprung back high into the air following the concrete toward the hero. Sang took to the air. He quickly sized up the situation and extended a hand, palm out, aimed at the flying concrete. A ball of blue Ki energy quickly swirled and formed in front of his palm before rocketing off at the chuck of debris.

The concrete debris was blasted into a cloud of dust in the air. That was the good news. The bad news was that only seconds later the red beast came tearing through the dust cloud trying to punch Flipside. The creature had incredible momentum and would significantly damage the building when it landed. Though it was moving fast it did not seem to have the ability to redirect itself in midair. Where it targeted to land is where it was going to unless some other force redirected the beast.

Megera saw the hero was in direct line of the charging beast. "Freaking kid I'd going to get himself killed." She whispered and her eyes turned black. The shadow purple and green clad hero's shadow grew in size and lifted off the ground.

In an attempt to save him, the shadow would try to wrap it's arms around him and pull him into the shadow itself. Acting as a portal, should the hero fall in, he would end up on a different roof, out of the path of the charging beast but nearby as to stay in the fight.

True, he did feel like he was being baby-sat for having both of them save him, but it just made him a teensy bit more serious. The rock exploding, and the beast completely missing the hit due to Flipside being dragged into the shadow only amused him slightly. "Alright, he doesn't seem to have any super speed, just some big-time hops and strength. Speaking of.." He hopped down near the beast, before knocking on the hood of a truck, who's driver had long abandoned it due to the chaos. "YO, BIG RED! YOU WANNA PLAY SUPER STRENGTH?!" His eyes glinted once more as he grunted, lifting the truck and hurling it at the beast, taking out his bat as he was more than prepared this time for some sort of comeback or retaliation. He also figured the other two heroes would be attacking as well.

The Savage Void crashed through the building that Flipside had been on before he disappeared into the shadows. The beast burst forth on to the street below taking half the building with him. Rubble was strewn around the entire area and a dust cloud filled the street for a moment. The creature roared with anger as it spotted the two near the other end of the street. It spun around when hearing Flipside call out. The F-250 came sprawling at the beast rapidly. The truck tumbled as it flew through the air toward its target. The beast slapped a hand out and swatted the truck aside sending into a building with a crash as it penetrated the plate windows of the storefront. Glass flew into the store followed by the truck.

“Its strength seems to grow with its level of anger.” Sang called out letting the others know what he was sensing in the creature’s power. In an attempt to distract the creature, he let fly a flurry of small Ki blasts at its back. The first few hit and caused the creature to stumble forward slightly. They had apparently done no damage but it certainly got the beast’s attention. It turned its back to Flipside and roared in Sang’s direction. It moved to a public city bus and lifted it over his head with one hand and threw it in the direction of Sang and the Shadow Mistress. Sang made no motion to move from the incoming flying bus and stood fast as it approached.
