Page 3 – Airgirl and Stretch deal with some small scale crime.

‘Listen to this’ he says it just came in over all channels.

Just then the night sky turns black with no stars, moon or other light.

 

Page 7 – Stretch listens ‘People of the world, hear me now. I am nighthaunt, future ruler and beneficent leader of this planet. I speak to you now of a choice: submit to the power of the One True Faith or live in darkness forever.! To show that I have the might to act, look to the sky and prepare yourselves.’

 

‘This is when the sky went out’ says Fox,  ‘Nighthaunt is the one who escaped, he must have had a plan ready to go’.

 

Page 8 – The streets are full chaos as people panic and the criminal class take advantage by looting.

 

Page 9 – The evening sky comes back and the message continues live this time.

‘The choice confronts you. Submit to the faith of super-naturalism as your sole religion and to me as its one true priest, or suffer the consequences of folly. You have one day to pay me a fitting tribute of good faith. This tribute is to be an offering of ten billion in gold, five pounds of fissionable material, and a division of crack troops, enough for your leader to have the wealth and power befitting him. You have 24 hours before I blot out the sun finally and irrevocably. If you have not submitted to my leadership by that time, the blame rests upon your shoulders. Hear and obey.’

 

Page 10 – Stretch and Airgirl met up and discuss the situation, while they are a call comes in from DC Fox.

‘You are requested to met a government at the cabinet office from where you will be taken to met up with the PM.

Page 13 – ‘My science aid’s believe that Nighthaught has created a giant sized version of his Light Dampening field generator. If he has it seems that it might black out the world. The military have managed to pick up the transmission quickly enough to get a partial location. It came from somewhere in the North Atlantic but we are not sure quick where.’ She continues, ‘it is up to you two to find out where and stop him, the clock is ticking and we have under 22 hours remaining. Unfortunately Captain Britain is busy and no one else is available, I have been told that you are capable heroes who can get this job done. ‘ ‘The military have a high speed long range Helicopter and pilot for your use.

 

Page 14 – ‘We also believe that a bat like creature which was part of a robbery this evening in Bath is linked to this man. The creature  disappeared in a smoke and ash, it was wearing a belt which we have here it held a couple of grenades.’

Airgirl and Stretch take a look at the belt and Airgirl notices a small leaf hooked on the belt.

Stretch knows from his wide knowledge of biology that it comes from only one plant from only one place a small island near Iceland.

 

Page 15 – With the where worked out they head for the helicopter for a 3 hour flight to the island.

 

Page 16 – With time to work Airgirl hacks the satellite control system at NASA. to use a satellite to view the island. With the sensors they can see a volcano to the west and signs of a building to the east, surrounded by forest.

 

Page 17 – Airgirl uses her talent with computers to see if there is any trace of internet communications from this island but fails to break the encryption.

 

Page 18 – 80 miles out Airgirl and Stretch leave the copter. Airgirl fly’s on the winds and uses wind to push Stretch who has taken on a sail shape.

 

Page 19 – Reaching the island they land on the volcano.

Airgirl fly’s off on her own to recon towards the building using her stealth ability as much as possible.

 

Page 20 – Flying east she comes across a road going roughly north south. Then still flying east she comes across a three way junction with one heading the way she want to go. This leads to what she takes to be the HQ.

 

Page 21 – There is a large roughly square one story building with two helicopters on the eastern side of the roof.

Outside the front is a small car park with some buggies.

 

 

Page 22 – Airgirl decides to disable the helicopters. To do this she tries to open a hatch and pull out cables.

However as soon as she touches the hatch she receives an electric shock which throws her back.

Page 23 – Stretch has been looking around the volcano, but not found anything except plants and insects to interest him.

 

Page 24 – Airgirl carries Stretch in a whirlwind to the HQ, getting close she uses her air control to whip up a mist to cover them from cameras.

He uses hi micro size to get into the lock and open the door.

However an alarm goes off when the door opens.

 

Page 28 – The two of them leave the roof and go round to the front door, assuming guards will be heading for the roof.

Stretch reaches the front door and is caught by a area icy blast and caught in a prison of ice.

‘Not those Chill guns again’ thinks Stretch.

Airgirl continues to blast the dish

Stretch leave the room and moves over to the door on the right and opens it.

 

Page 35 – Airgirl attacks the demon again this time it goes boom and vanishes in a puff of smoke and dust. She then moves back away from the second demon.

and so on

 

 

Page 47 – Waiting for him to finish Airgirl lets go with her airblast, but he seems to avoid it.

Nighthaunt does two things, one he activates his fear which dazes Stretch. Then he puts the room into darkness.

 

Page 48 – Airgirl blasts another demon which goes boom, using her air sense to target.
