Issue 10 Captured
Captured by NightHauant our heroes are frozen in ice and put into two clear Plexiglas chambers.
These chambers are hanging from the roof of a room.
Within this room is a steam generator powered by thermal energy from below the volcano.
NightHaunt sets the controls to overload, giving him an hour to escape. As he goes he sets internet cameras going so he can watch their demise and send a message when they wake.
NightHaunt takes his hidden Jet-copter to the ship Dark Sky
The heroes awake
‘Arh you are awake’ comes from the room around. ‘I hope you find your situation amusing? I do.
You are both going to die while I continue with my plans if slightly delayed. I will enjoy watching you die….’
The dials on the generator can be seen moving slowly into the red.

Stretch makes use of his escapology and his ability to stretch his limbs to try to get free of the ice.
Stretch gets free of the ice.
Airgirl fires blasts of air at the chamber to fracture it.

Airgirl flys over to look at the generator whose dial is still rising.
Airgirl finds the controls to the generator
Airgirl creates a cyclone to pull on the control levers of the generator
Stretch at last gets free as his chamber breaks when it hits the floor.
