Based on the Free BASH! Ultimate Edition Adventure By Chris Rutkowsky & Michael Mikulis

Other BASH stories here

This story takes place during the Greater Bath Annual Holiday Parade, being held Christmas Eve. S.A.G.A have been invited by police chief Alvin Walker to ride in a float along with several of the cities ‘Finest’. Their presence is not purely for fun– Chief Walker always wants a super powered presence as these functions… just in case. And tonight it is a good thing he did!
Martha Millington – ‘Local reporter’ and Stretch’s secret ID fiancée, is reporting live on TV on the parade as well as being the voice those watching hear over the tannoy system.

 

“Well folks, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Bath this evening. As you can see behind me, snow is gently starting to fall. Thank you for joining us at the 27th annual City Holiday Parade this Christmas Eve. For those just joining us, we have seen some local superheroes and some everyday heroes– officers representing the city Police Department. Coming now is the finale of our Parade, the Fifty foot-tall Nutcracker. Our Nutcracker is being pulled along by a troop of tin soldiers. The soldiers are from Bath University Drum & Bugle Corps. Weren’t they swell folks. Now the moment we’ve all been waiting for. That’s right boys & girls, Santa Claus is coming to town. The animatronic reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh are provided by Yamashita Robotics. And now… What’s this?!! It appears there is an unscheduled event– someone has just appeared on the parade grounds…

 

Looking round the crew can see a husky young man, with long hair tied in a pony-tail, wearing a trenchcoat. They can just make out his T-Shirt which says, “All your base are belong to us!”.  Martha latrer hears that Air-Gril realised that it was ‘The Game Master’ a nigh-omnipotent extradimensional being who loves to make problems for superheroes and others, and causes mischief in general. The only way to stop him is to beat him at whatever “game” he devises!

 

Suddenly; the Games Master waves his hand and everyone but the heroes, The Games Master and myself are frozen the parade stops.

The Game Master bellows, “What’s the matter with you people? You call this entertainment? Its even more depressing that this holiday has become entirely too commercial! This isn’t what your holidays are all about! They’re all about the spirit of giving! But not to worry folks! The Game Master is going to give you a wonderful gift– the gift of lively entertainment. What do you say to that?

 

A moment of silence is followed by thunderous applause He continues, “Well, Heroes, I have to give the people what they want! The rules of this game are simple: You must complete three Christmas challenges. As you pass each test, I will release one third of the crowd from my gentle control! Pass all three, and I’ll be gone like a flash! Agreed? Good! For your first test, you must… SURVIVE!”
At that moment, the Fifty-Foot Nutcracker comes to life as a giant, clockwork robot! Picks up the float and tosses it into the air.  The Drum & Buglers dressed as Tin soldiers are turned into real Tin Soldiers– armed with muskets and bayonets! All of them begin to converge on the Heroes’ position! “Remember Heroes– its not the look of what you get– its what’s inside that counts!”

 

The Heroes respond quickly with Stretch grabs the four police officers in his arms and legs and glides with them to the ground and away from the nutcracker.  Alfa teleports to the head of the nutcracker and starts to punch it while Air-Girl gains height. The nutcracker ignores Alfa on its head and grabs the float and throws it at Stretch and the police, however Air-Girl fly’s in the way and blasts the float away smashing it up in the process. Hooray thinks Martha maybe this will be over quickly after all.

Unfortunately she was to quick and a long battle follows between the nutcracker the heroes and the tin soldier’s. Alfa takes damage from the tin soldiers until Stretch manages to clear them away, unfortunately killing one of the band members in the process even though he pulled his flurry of blows. Once the tin soldiers where out of the way it didn’t take long for the three heroes to take down the nutcracker and the first test was over and my crew along with a 1/3 of the spectators where freed from control.

The Game Master then says:
“Well Done, Super-Zeroes! It looks like I’ll be able to give these poor saps a show after all! But
what sort of show would it be with such lousy decorations?” Pointing to the city Christmas tree by the guild hall, the Game Master makes it grow to be hundreds of feet tall, dwarfing even the nearby buildings. “And what would our tree be without some ornaments?”  I suddenly disappear and reappear in an Angel costume on top of the tree. I am hanging on for dear life, and will lose my grip quickly, I try not to scream remembering that I am still broadcasting. Commenting about how every tree should have a choo-choo going around, the Game Master rips up the nearby rail tracks and puts them in a circle around the base of the tree– an unfinished circle! With a two car train full of passengers on it.

 

Stretch stretches his limbs and climbs up the tree to save his beloved, as he does the fairy lights start shooting laser flak at him and four giant birds fly out from the tree to protect their nest. Stretch is such a cool hero, even if a bit heavy handed some times she thinks as he avoids these dangers to get to her.  Taking hold of me he glides down to the nearest roof and gently puts me down. While Stretch was saving me Alfa teleported to the gap between the train carriages and tries to un hitch them. Air-Girl seems to make the air around the train thicker to slow it down and then creates a wall of wind to stop the second carriage which Alfa has now separated.  Alfa I am then told teleported into the carriage and told the passengers to leave by the doors while he teleported to the cabin and applied the brakes.

 

Then he teleported to the front carriage drivers cabin and lifted the driver out so the dead mans brakes would come on, only they didn’t.. Stretch meanwhile had become a set of bumpers at the end of the track to stop the rest of the train. However in the end he hadn’t needed to as Air-Girl with the second carraige stopped used her air wall to stop the first as well.  Second game won…

 

Furious that his challenge has been bested again by the Heroes, the Game Master frees the second part of the crowd from his control. Then he says: “Well, Heroes, it seems that I have not been making these challenges difficult enough! Your special gifts give you too much of an “unfair advantage”. But, as they say, it is better to give than receive.” At that moment, I see the Game Master disappear, reappearing in the place of Santa Claus from the Parade, wearing a red Santa suit. The sleigh has become a tricked-out rocket sled, and the animotronic reindeer come to life with a look of menace in their artificial eyes. A nearby snowman is also brought to life, taking on the icy appearance of Jack Frost! At that point, the Game Master speaks again, “And this reminds me of one of my favourite Christmas Traditions– the old Secret Santa gift exchange!” He waves his hand, and suddenly, you all feel very strange… “There– doesn’t it feel good to exchange gifts? Now that that’s out of the way, if you want to trade back, you’ll have to beat me, my reindeer, and my Frosty friend over here!” Air-Girl says he has swapped our bodies round and she was right. She now had Alfa’s powers and he had Stretch’s  and Stretch had hers.

 

The crowd and I now get to watch a super powered fight between the three heroes and Santa, Frosty and the sleigh. Air-Girl or Alfa gets confusing knocks the sleigh while The other two get caught up with Frosty who freezes them both. Then it gets confused as a giant Star turns up in the sky and the heroes struggle with the ice and snow caused by Frosty. Then Santa starts throwing parcels at Air-Girl which explode. Anyway after a short very confusing time I am told by Stretch that he got the hang of Air-Girls powers and used her air control to direct hot air at Frosty which got past his ice armour and melted him. Then it was all thee of them against Santa in a pummelling fight. Once Santa lost he disappeared and the Games Master reappeared.

 

Now defeated three times, the Game Master frees all the rest of the people of his mind control and disappear. The heroes breath a sigh of relief that it is done, and it was a close run thing they say. Then Alfa remembers he still has Stretch’s powers and shouts out hey you, the Game Master’s disembodied voice says, “Oh Yeah, I almost forgot– Merry Christmas” and switches their bodies back..  What a Christmas parade this reporter says, next year will have a lot to live up to. Heroes wherever they are trouble follows, its almost as if they are a magnet.  Well Happy Christmas to all our viewers from me and all those here.

 

 

 

 

BASH Issue 7 – Druid Cornered


Issue 7 Druid Cornered

Page 1

Our heroes met and decide until they can come up with any other idea to call themselves S.A.G.A [ Supervillian Apprehension Group Anonymous]

 

Page 2

Air Girl and Alfa have tracked Simon AKA Druid to Anglesey see issue 4.

They find that Druid  has a coastal  farm in Anglesey which he has turned into a Druid centre. This is not far from the RAF air station.

With a bit of research they find that there is a stone circle near to the farm near to a wood.

 

Page 3

Alfa carrying Air Girl teleports to the wood.

Alfa then listens for radio signals but only finds mobile signals and they appear to be encripted.

 

Page 4

Alfa then uses his keen senses to look around using both his normal and infrared  vision both in black and white.

There is always a lot of wildlife around the farm. The farm has a main house with converted barns around the yard a few hundred meters from the coast. A large wooded area which runs up towards the air station has wolves, boar and deer in it.  The farm has fields of crops, animals [Cows, Sheep, Pigs and Chickens] and bee hives.

One barn appears to be the vets lab with various animals inside as well as 3 humans

One barn appears to be a dorm with six bodies lying down on beds.

The house has four humans in it and he can see a blacksmith at work along with two farm hands.

He also thinks the walls are protected as he had to work hard to see the heat through them.

 

Page 5

They move to the Stone Circle by the edge of the wood.

It is very old and seems to be in use as there are some blood stains on it.

There are gaps in the circle for more stones.

 

Page 6

The Farm as a HQ has animal acting as lookouts [Sensors] Alfa and Air Girl  have been seen and the alram raised.

Air Girl looks at the circle and wonders if it is a computer or device of some sort. She thinks it might or might not be she does not have enough information.

 

Page 7

Alfa check’s to see if there is any druidic activity scheduled for these stones, apparently none for a while.

 

Page 8

Alfa teleports into what he thinks is a lab.

He does a quick 360 degree scan and jumps out again however before he leaves he is attacked by hundreds of insects which fail to harm him.

 

Page 9

Once back with Air Girl Alpha reruns the pictures from his scan, helped by his photographic memory.

He sees a veterinary lab with Simon and two others along with open cages of animals.

 

Page 10

Alfa then watches some ROD warriors training in their kilts and woad fighting with spear sword and shield in a training areas.

 

 

Page 11

Alfa teleports into and out of what he thinks was a dorm.

He is right it has a kitchen smaller rooms and a common area. Lots of pictures of druidic symbols and Celtic warriors, god etc on the walls.

 

Page 12

Air Girl notices, by a chance in the air around her, the approach of a insect swarm approaching on the ground and in the air.

 

Page 13

Air Girl picks up a quarter of the swarm using a cyclone.

 

Page 14

She fly’s towards the farmhouse with the rest of the swarm trying to keep up.

She is faster than the swarm and keeps ahead of it as she moves it away from Alfa and towards the farmhouse.

 

Page 15

Air Girl reaches the farmhouse.

She pulls the cyclone up over the chimney.

And then drops the swarm down it.

 

Page 16

Air Girl floats over the farmhouse and waits.

 

The insects drop down the chimney and head off in different directions ignoring those inside.

 

Page 17

Air Girl and Alfa see the Druid and 18 ROD warriors heading towards the wood and Alfa.

 

Page 18

Alfa teleports up 1,000′ and watches.

 

Page 19

Druid and his group stop and he chants and summoned a Spirit Eagle.

As the huge eagle appears Druid also calls together hundreds of pigions.

 

Page 20

Alfa teleports to Air Girl and then home.

 

Page 21

The two of them now get down to some more research to work out where the missing stones might be.

This takes a while but they find that they can trace down from Roman times five power stones. One is part of the Roman Baths of Bath, another is in the British Museum, another is part of the foundations of Bath Abbey while the fourth is at Stonehenge and the last is part of the stone Circle they saw at the farm.

 

Page 22

A time of discussion and reflection.

 

Page 23

Air Girl using her amassing intellect and ability to research pounders on whether any Stone Circle would work  and comes to the conclusion that as long as it was on a Ley-Line junction it might well do.

 

Page 24

They decide to check one of these stones out and being in Bath they decide to check out the one in the Roman Baths.

Air Girl is recognized and uses that as a distraction by air dancing and then allowing selfies and such.

Alfa finds the stone in the Baths and scans it.

 

Page 25

Back with Air Girl Alfa shares what he saw and they think about it.

He saw a rock with many symbols on it, his science skills told him it was from a meteorite and not terrestrial.

Air Girl tells him that she thinks that the symbols and its organic make up means that a bunch of them used together will work a bit like a computer circuit opening up a portal to another realm where a being could come from.

This links with what they found before that Simion is trying to bring back the Celtic war god Cicouis.

 

Page 26

Although Alfa and Air Girl do not know where the others are they leave messages for them bringing them up to date on the investigation.

 

Page 27

Now with a plan the two of them check the internet for a picture of the Anglesey stone, although Alfa has seen it he has no idea of color seeing only in black and white,  having found one they work together to create a replica of the stone from normal stone.

 

Page 28

Alfa teleports Air Girl to Anglesey where she produces a sea fog to cover the circle.

Alfa then teleports to the stone circle.

 

Page 29

Alfa feels around for the right stone in the fog while being attacked by thousands of ants.

 

Page 30

Finding the stone he grabs it and heaves.

Ripping it from the ground with his super human strength.

 

Page 31

With ants crawling all over him he teleports back to Bath and puts the stone down, the ants not being able to get inside his body crawl away. [no longer under control]

 

Page 32

Alfa picks up the replica rock and teleports back to the fog covered circle.

 

Page 33

Alfa plants the replica stone into the place the place the original stone came from and tucks the earth back around it.

 

Page 34

The Druid in the farm yard opens up and gateway to the circle and Alfa falls through and into the farm yard.

 

Page 35

Alfa says, ‘destroy me and you will never find the stone again’

Druid – turns his body to oak and then transforms into a bear, and attacks Alfa. His claws fail to get past Alfa’s armour but do knock him over.

 

Six of the ROD warriors then throw spears at Alfa but all also fail to get past Alfa’s armour.

 

Alfa stands, teleports to Druid and attacks but a flock of birds fly in the way taking the effect of his punch.

 

Page 36

Druid summons a huge spirit bear  behind Alfa and attacks. Again he fails to do much but the massive bear batters Alfa to the ground.

 

The ROD warriors manage to get a couple of spears to hit and punch through Alfa’s armour.

 

Alfa decides that this is a no win contest and teleports back home.

 

Page 37

Alfa teleports and gets Air Girl and teleports both of them home.

 

Page 38

After a short discussion of what to do with the stone they decide the only way to keep it out of druids reach is to put it into space drifting towards the sun.

So Alfa teleports 1,000 miles up towards the sun and away from the moon with the stone and kicks it on its way.

 

Page 39

Alfa teleports back and he and Air Girl decide job well done and no one knows about it at all.

 

Page 40

Rock spinning slowly towards the very distant sun, with the ISS [International Space Station] a small dot to the side.

BASH Issue 6 A Frozen City


Issue 6 A Frozen City

 

Page 1

Media reports Martha has done a in-depth report about Doris Dagger a wheelchair bound politician of the Women’s Equality Party, a Bristol counselor, who is running for Bristol city mayor she is accusing her male rivals of Sexism as well as  disabilityisam. She claims that they are saying she is not up to the job and incapable of coping.  She says she has multiple degrees and is appealing to the female vote, her views on men are well known, anything they can do females can do better. She has desires to be the UK first WEP Prime Minister at some point.

Her rivals say this is all made up or taken out of context,  Of course they do as men would never do anything so underhand.

This reporter thinks Doris is a breath of fresh air, and just maybe a woman leader will do something about this rash of male heroes and villains who are causing so much havoc, men just seem to be in awe of them.

 

 

Page 2

A fine Spring day light cloud and bright sunshine.

 

Professor Stuart Stanley, Aka Stretch, is fishing on the banks of the river Avon in Bath on his own. He has taken a day off work to just relax.

 

Air Girl is practicing her dance moves on the roof of a building near to where she lives.

 

Page 3

They feel the air get colder and can see their breath in the air, frost starts to from on surfaces and then ice starts to cover the ground. A sudden cold snap?

Stuart starts to see the river freeze over trapping barges and boats and his fishing line. He starts to pack up his tackle, seat, and over boxes with his lunch away.

 

Over radio’s, text alerts and TV screens comes the update that Bath City centre is under ice the river is frozen  and people are falling over. Boats are trapped, cars have crashed, where has this sudden cold come from?

 

Page 4

Slightly later media reports –  Shops and shops and banks are also being robbed as someone takes advantage of the situation.

Stuart not having a radio with him has not heard any of this and is heading home to put his stuff away, have a warm drink and then go for a walk.

Air Girl fly’s over towards a bank to see what is going on.

She sees Ice minions collecting cash from the bank and shops and putting the cash onto drones.

 

Page 5

Air Girl decides to follow a drone rather than stop the robbers.

 

The Pro phones his contact Chief Detective Brain Fox to find out what is going on with this cold snap. Fox brings him up to date on the situation, in fact he sounds quite agitated and anxious about the number of car accidents as well as the number of reports of injured people falling on the ice. The ice seems to cover most of the city centre around one square mile in area.

 

Page 6

Stuart changes to Stretch and heads for the centre of the problem the Abbey Church Yard phoning the only other hero he knows is around at the moment Air Girl they arrange to met at the abbey.

 

Air Girl gives up following the very slow drone and heads to the abbey.

 

 

 

Page 7

Captain Chill and two Cyborg’s are stood in the Abbey churchyard stopping all police interference. A few drones are flying around them as well as each group of minions collecting cash recording everything, or collecting the cash.

 

Page 8

Once Air Girl and Stretch arrive they see a strange sight, a few police are trying to keep the crowds of shoppers back from Chill. However a lot of the shoppers are trying to get selfie’s with the escaped villain.

Others are lying on the ground or on benches with injured limbs. There are also crashed vehicles around the shopping area. The whole area is ice covered.

 

They discuss options.

 

Page 9

Air Girl decides to use her air control to grab a drone and throw it at a Cyborg. This hits and the drone is smashed into bits but it does knock the Cyborg off its feet and 17′ backwards.

 

Page 10

Captain Chill starts into a verbal tirade, telling them how point less it is for them to face off against him. How they have no grounds for attacking him and are they feeling the chill dude.

 

Page 11

Air Girl manages to let him finish his verbal assault and then fires a wind blast at him, which chips bits off ice off of his icy caprice.

 

Stretch had started bouncing, having formed a ball while Chill was speaking, between buildings.

 

Chill skates 120′ on his skates which create a 3′ high slide of ice and fires his Chill gun at Air Girl. The cone of cold envelopes her as she tries to avoid it. she is stuck in a icy block.

 

The Ice Warrior, Chill created out of the ice, stands still.

 

The two Cyborg’s both jump upwards, they ascend 50′. Air Girl works out that they will go up to around 400′ before they start to come back down, presumably to land on one of them.

 

Page 12

Air Girl fighting falling out of the sky as her mass increased when the ice formed around her. She tries to head towards the hot Roman baths which will melt this cage off of her.

 

Stretch bounces into Chill, knocking him 50′ towards the abbey walls and onto his back.

 

Chill stands and towards Stretch who has bounced away.

 

The two Cyborg’s continue to go up.

 

Page 13

Air Girl drops into the hot waters of the Roman Baths and the ice melts from around her.

The Baths have not frozen due to the constant flow of natural very hot water into it.

 

Stretch bounces away from Chill.

 

Chill Skates after Stretch.

 

Cyborg’s continue upwards.

 

 

Page 14

Air Girl fly’s up  level with the Cyborg’s staying at range and blasts one of them with her wind blast.

 

Stretch continues to bounce around avoiding Chill and bystanders.

 

Chill skates back to the Abbey yard.

 

Cyborg’s reach 200′ up.

 

Page 15

Air Girl wind blasts the Cyborg again this time knocking it out, however its motion is still up.

 

Stretch Continues to bounce.

 

Cyborg’s reach 250′

 

Page 16

Air Girl still keeping level with the Cyborg’s hits the other one with her wind blast

 

Stretch tries to see where Chill has got to.

 

Cyborg’s reach 300′

 

 

Page 17

Air Girl continues to blast the Cyborg

 

Stretch bounces upwards to see over the crowds, hero die, he sees Chill and bounces at him.

As he does the Ice Warrior gets in his way and its icy sword thrusts into him. Stretch is stopped in his tracks with a bleeding wound where the sword hit him.

 

Cyborg’s reach 350′

 

 

Page 18

Air Girl continues to blast the Cyborg

 

Stretch wrestles the Ice warrior and throws it 42′ into a wall.

 

Chill Skates towards Stretch to freeze him with his chill gun.

As he does two ARG police [Armed Response Group] open fire on him with their Pulse rifles.  The impact of these blasts knock Chill sideways 42′ onto the ground and away from Stretch. [Hero Die from Air Girl]

 

Cyborg’s reach 400′

 

Ice Warrior stands and skates towards Stretch.

 

Page 19

Air Girl eventually knocks out the second Cyborg

 

Stretch, stretches his legs and arms to grabble Chill.

 

Chill tries to struggle free.

 

Cyborg’s drop to 350′ as they fall

 

The Ice Warrior swings its icy sword at Stretch.

 

The ARG fire on the ice warrior but the blasts have no real effect on its icy armour.

 

 

Page 20

Air Girl uses her master of the air to take hold of one of the Cyborg’s and put it safely on the ground by the police.

 

Stretch starts to choke Chill

 

Cyborg drops to 300′

 

Ice Warrior stabs at Stretch again, luck for Stretch his elastic body allows him to keep moving out of the way.

 

The ARG fire at the warrior again this time their blasts shatter its ice sending sharp shards in a 60′ radius.

These shards cut into bystanders, injuring many.

 

 

Page 21

Air Girl gives the second Cyborg a soft landing by the police.

She has stopped them both and saved their lives.

 

Stretch manages to choke Chill into unconsciousness and gives him to the police as well.

 

Page 22

Air Girl and Stretch pose for pictures and then leave the area, Stretch knowing he can talk away the couple of wounds as caused by the flying ice as the Pro was watching the action.

 

Page 23

The Ice starts to melt once Chill is taken away and as it does the emergency services arrive to help the injured.

The Chill minions disappear as has nearly a million in cash from across the city.

 

Again it turns out that the Cyborg’s are men who have been drugged and been fitted with advanced Cyborg implants.

 

Page 24

The media has a field day on the heroes who did not stop any of the robberies but faced off against a super who was doing nothing till they cam and started a fight.

No one yet knows what to call this group of heroes however quite a few like ‘The Destroyers’ due to the amount of damage which follows them around.

 

BASH Issue 5 – Drone Terror


Drone Terror

Page 1/

While Air-girl and Alfa are looking for Simon see last issue

News reports

The Robot Alfa and Air-girl seemed to have formed a group, name unknown, we hope it is for the betterment of all and not their egos. Will the other heroes decide to join them as well?

Martha reports on the damage done around Bath as the ‘heroes’ stopped the rogue robots. Would the robots have done less damage if the ‘Heroes’ had not got involved?  Yes the heroes do good in stopping petty crime but when they get involved with super villains or there activities bad things happen.

 

Captain Chill has broken out of jail, members of the public are warned to avoid him as he can be dangerous.

 

Killjoy has been seen around, taking out muggers and other minor criminals, is he a hero or what? Each place he turns up depression, sadness and anger afflict those near by for days.

 

 

Page 2/

Saturday  morning

Prof Stuart Stanley, Stretch, is out with Martha,  at the Farmers market in Green Park Station buying fresh food.

Grenade, Doug Macarthur,  is at the gym keeping toned and fit.

 

Page 3/

Martha has a alert on her phone that the shopping area of Bath is being terrorised by low flying drones, there appears to be more than 10 of them.

 

Grenade sees it on the gyms TV screen.

 

Both mention that all police have been called in to help with the disruption and panic. Windows and trash bins are exploding.

 

Page 4/

Stretch tells Martha he needs the toilet and goes to look, down the road near the cinema he can see a large 3′ drone swooping around.

 

Grenade heads out of the gym to look and sees a drone flying past shoppers down the road and a flash on a car.

 

Page 5/

Stretch, stretches his legs and sprints towards the drone, covering 30squaers. While the drone flies towards him. [10sq]

 

Grenade looks for a controller but does not see anyone obviously controlling the drone.

As he watches he sees a beam come from the drone to hit a parked car as the shoppers flee screaming.

 

Page 6/

Stretch continues to sprint with his long legs towards the oncoming drone, which stops 30 squares away from him.

 

Grenade heads towards a tech shop to buy a controller so he can try to gain control of the drone. [this will take a while]

 

Page 7/

Stretch sprints another 30 squares ending up under the drone, the drone moves upwards to end up 10 squares above him.

 

 

Page 8/

Stretch stretches his arms and grabs the drone from above him and smashes it into the wall.  The drone falls to pieces.

 

Page 9/

Stretch picks up the bits of the drone and heads back to Martha.

 

The car under attack by the drone explodes.

 

Page 10/

Drones continue to blow things up and buzz shoppers.

 

 

Page 11/

A while later.

Stretch back as Pro Stanley show Martha the bits,  ‘it just flew at me and hit the wall’ he says. She phones Grenade, who she knows, to see what he knows and can do. Stretch talks to him as the Professor and agree to met at Cafe Nero. She then heads off to interview some shoppers.

 

Grenade gives up on getting a remote and head to met the Professor.

 

 

Page 12/

Later at Cafe Nero – the Professor meets grenade

News flash – the drones have gone, police use rubber bullets to shot four down. A few cars have exploded, many trash bins have been set on fire and windows have been broken. No people have been hurt, the object of this attack is unknown and no group has claimed reasonability.

 

On another news item  – Roughhouse, a known super human, has been seen robbing a bank in Keynsham while the police where distracted.

 

 

Page 13/

Together they discuss the attack and the drone parts. Both of them wish that Alfa was around with his computer knowledge as they are both out of their depth, although they can see that the drone has a camera, a heat sensor as well as a low powered laser. It seems to have been transmitting data to the internet.

 

Grenade says he will contact John from MI5 to see if they can see where the data has gone, he says ‘give us a day or so.’

 

Page 14/

The Professor and Grenade wonder if this was to see super heroes in action and was the drones linked to the bank robbery.

They head off.

 

 

Page 15/

36 hours later.

John tells Grenade that the data was streamed to a password protected site, which they have failed to get into.

John also talks about the robbery and Roughhouse, so Grenade finds out about him.

Background: A low intelligent man he spent years moving up the ranks of the underworld as a super powered leg breaker for hire. For a short time he worked as a super powered Bounty Hunter, working with the man known as Blaster.. The truth is, he’s still a leg breaker, just a high paid one now.

 

Page 16/

Grenade and Stretch met up again to share knowledge. They agree that the Professor should try to see if he can use his medical links to find out more about Roughhouse. While Grenade will go and look at the robbed bank.

They come to the conclusion that it was unlikely that Roughhouse organised any of this and he is working for someone else.

 

Page 17/

The Professor uses his Science /Biology; Medicine /Research skills to work through medical papers to see if he can find out about Roughhouse. It takes him a few days and he avoids being found out. He finds out that Howard Brooks as a child, had trouble controlling his great strength, and was unable to attend school because of it. It was hard to take blood tests due to his hard skin , he was also very heavy for his size. It didn’t take long for him to fall in with the wrong crowd. This seems like Roughhouse and the psychological reports talked about a boy with low education due to his lack of schooling, but when he had a task he was relentless in pursuing the aim no matter what.

 

P18/

Grenade goes to see the scene of the bank robbery, the bank is a mess. Walls where just smashed through and the vaults door ripped off its hinges, however there is little he can see that the police reports hadn’t already shared on the news.

 

P19/

The Professor and Grenade met up again and exchange info.

The Professor tell Grenade that he is Stretch and they agree to work together and join the group Alfa and Air-girl have set up.

News Flash – Roughhouse is robbing a bank in Batheaston armed police are on route.

Stretch and Grenade head there.

While their backs are turned, the eyes of the Exterminator s glow and the disconnected robots slowly begin to move.

Boxes posted by J Crowe of Acme suppliers from New York.

Acme suppliers are known to have transported high tech stuff out of the USA before.

 

 

Page 32/

L Crowe is part of a Druidic cult in North America called  United Ancient Order of Druids (UAOD) .

This is linked in the UK to a group called Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD)

Air Girl gets onto a chair and Alfa teleports them away.

 

Page 33/

Again six Gallic warriors turn up and attack, Air Girl pulls a stunt and gets her whirlwind to effect all six of them, trapping them till the police arrives.

 

Page 34/

With a picture of Simon from the net they use the internet again to find out more about him.

HISTORY-

Simon, a Vet, was a normal druidic sun worshiper often arrested or beaten by the police while occupying Stonehenge. Then one solstice at Stonehenge when as the sun rose shining through a gap in the dark storm clouds while Simon, was leaning against one of the stones, a freak lighting bolt struck. It coursed through the stone and Simon. He was rushed to hospital badly burned and injured, Simon was close to death, however he survived and over the next few days recovered fully and left hospital, much to the confusion of the doctors. He has since sold his practice and disappeared.

 

Page 35/

Air Girl taking the shape of a cloud follows a Gallic warrior when realised from the police station.

 

Page 36/

Air Girl follows to a grove in Bathford where a small group has assembled.

Using her ability to hear on the air she listens to them.

They appear to be talking with Simon on Skype, Alfa hacks into the transmission as he can hear radio waves.

Simon is disappointed that the robots did not get the stone in the Roman Baths he needed.

But he will try again, until them they must find out about these heroes.

 

Page 37/

Air Girl and Alfa hack Skype to find out Simons location. Anglesey where else.

John of MI5  sits at his desk looking at the reports.

He decides to find out where the Chill sergeants have come from. So John contacts Grenade, who he knows, to make use of his skills, as MI5 has before, to find this active threat, John also calls upon the new hero Alfa to help using a general radio message to contact him.

 

Page 2/

When the two arrive at Lansdowne golf course for the meeting, Alfa teleports and walks in, in his long coat and wide brimmed hat. Grenade takes the bus.

Afla recognises Grenade from his Fame and Infamy. While they play a round, John explains that Chill units have been turning up in various places and not just locally, they seem to be used as mercenary support for others. MI5 would like the two of them to work together or separately to find the source of these chill gun armed thugs operating locally.

They also are concerned that Jo Coburn a scientist who works on chilling technology, has not been seen for some weeks, has she been kidnapped, just on holiday or something else?

 

Page 3/

Alfa asks if the Chill Sergeants are clones, John answers no they are human.

He then heads to the library to access the net to find out about Jo.

She works at University of the West of England [UWE], and lives in Bath.

Alfa hacks the UWE data base to find her address. She lives at Riverside and is late back from a four week holiday.

Is she working for them or held by them?

 

Page 4/

The two go the the riverside and Grenade rings the front door bell.

With no answer Alfa looks into a window and teleports in and opens the door for Grenade.

 

Page 5/

The flat is empty.

So the two of them look for clues.

Alfa [uses a hero die] finds a card and wet patches.

The card for Chill mercenaries co. with a e-mail address, the damp patches seem to be melted ice.

 

Page 6/

Alfa goes back to the library, while Grenade heads to UWE.

 

Page 7/

Alfa using uses its hacking skill to send a spam mail to the Chill e-mail address.

This allows access to computer records.

 

Page 8/

Grenade having reached the Uni. front desk smiles at the female at the desk and suggests she supply some Info on Jo.

Kelly the front desk lady takes Grenade to Jo’s labs and the assistants working there.

 

Page 9/

Again Grenade makes eye contact and suggests they show him the research.

It seems that the group are working on making small and efficient freezing and chilling units. Which can make keeping containers cold easier, or helping troops in hot areas keep cool or even firemen able to fight the heat of a fire.

 

Page 10/

This tech could also be used as a weapon, although that is not what they are working on.

Various companies and people have been interested in this work and Grenade gets a 6 page list of these companies.

Grenade texts himself all the info he has gathered so Alfa can see it.

 

Page 11/

Alfa tries to get deeper access to the Chill co. records but fails and is chucked out of the system.

 

Page 12/

Alfa and Grenade met up at a cafe to share info and decide to contact John of MI5 to visit a Chill sergeant in prison.

 

Page 13/

Prison.

John takes them to see the one healthy chill sergeant, the other is still suffering from the injures he suffered.

Grenade uses his suggestion ability to again get information.

Apparently they work for a Captain Chill whose base is to the south of old Bath  and agents go to the Odd Down Park and Ride to take a enclosed van on a short trip to it.

The white van has Chill Co on its side.

 

Page 14/

Alfa decides to do a thermal scan of the area to the south of old Bath.

Using his ability to teleport, he teleports into the sky, falls a little and teleports higher and along a path doing this to cover a wide area.

This takes time but works nearly as good as having flight.

He finds to very cold spots, one at Bath Reclamation at Odd Down and Circle at Peasdown.

 

Page 15/

Afla lands at Brec and looks around. It is a small sprawling area dealing mainly with scraping and reusing tech. Ran by Kenny Kirstone, cold area seems to be where the chilling liquid from industrial freezers is kept.

He leaves quickly before being seen or caught trespassing.

 

Page 16/

He then jumps to near the Circle site. This site holds a hospital as well as some small industrial units.

He checks radio traffic and finds on a military frequency a security signal. Which seems to be a monitoring system linked to cameras etc.

 

Page 17/

He walks around the area and sees a enclosed behind fences Advanced Industrial Freezer Co. He picks up those security singles from this area.

Walking around the car park he spots a Chill Co. van.

 

Page 18/

He looks through the windscreen and teleports into the driver area.

He opens the door into the back and sees a enclosed area with some seats.

He teleports away.

 

Page 19/

Alfa and grenade met at a cafe again.

Talk about Miss Marple  the author. in between discussing their next steps.

They contact John and give him the info they have on AIF and the Circle area.

 

Page 20/

The two had to Circle with Alfa carrying Grenade as he teleports there.

 

Page 21/

Once there Alfa scans for cameras but falls to find them.

So Grenade decides to climb over the 15′ high fence with barbed wire on top.

He then uses his stealth to get to the door which is a locked and alarmed steel door. There are also barred windows and air vents.

 

Page 22/

Grenade finds the feed for the camera’s and puts them into a loop, using his security skills.

Then he uses his ability to open locks to open the heavy door.

 

Page 23/

Alfa teleports to the door.

The two of them see Kirk at the front desk and Grenade suggests that he takes them to Captain Chill.

‘We have an appointment’

Kirk, his name is on his badge gets up and moves to the secure door behind him which leads to a corridor, with doors to various rooms.

 

Page 24/

Kirk opens the first door in the corridor and says, ‘Captain, you have visitors’.

‘Kirk you are a  idiot!  get lost’. says Chill.

As he says this the air in the room gets very cold and frost starts to form on the walls and other surfaces.

 

Page 25/

Grenade tells Kirk to run and not disturb them. As he does he puts his hands onto the growing ice. He pits his power against Chills power to try to disrupt the creation of ice by making it shatter. He fails Chill has more power to control cold than he has to make things explode.

Alfa teleports behind Chill and grabs him.

Captain Chill forms a warrior out of the forming ice and says ‘Are you feeling the cold Dude?’ while trying to break free. He fails to break free he is just to weak compared to the robot strength of Alfa.

 

Page 26/

Grenade flips a powered up marble at the ice warrior, which explodes on contact blasting parts of the ice away.

Alfa teleports to the hospital car park, with a memory of total recall he can go any place he has been before. While restraining Chill.

The Ice warrior skates towards Grenade and then tries to stab him with its ice sword but fails to hit the nimble Grenade.

Chill again tries to break free.

 

Page 27/

Grenade leaps over and away from the warrior touching it as he goes and so activating its potential energy. It will explode next page.

Alfa teleports to the prison with Chill.

The Ice warrior turns and skates towards Grenade and again misses with its sword.

 

Page 28/

Alfa ‘Where is Jo?’

Grenade throws another marble to add to the coming explosion but misses for once. Then moves 60′ away into the corridor.

Boommmm

Ice Warrior cracks and bits fly off of it, but then its body reforms from the ice around it.

The warrior skates on the ice towards Grenade but is now out of reach with its sword.

 

Page 29/

At the prison the walls start to freeze.

Captain Chill tells Alfa, ‘Let me go and I let Jo go’

Alfa tries to bully Chill into giving her away. He threatens to teleport him into deep ice.

‘that will not hurt me’ Chill says. ‘No but lack of food etc will, Alfa replies.

Alfa tries again but Chill sticks firm saying that he knows a hero would not do that, and Alfa knows he is right he will not do anything he says he will.

 

Page 30/

Grenade throws another marble at the warrior. It hits and more ice flies off.

The Ice warrior skates forward towards grenade and again misses him with his sword.

But as Grenade watches the Ice warrior starts to melt away turning to water, as is all the ice around.

Chill must no longer be effecting this place.

 

Pace 31/

Grenade texts Alfa again, updating him. Then goes and finds Kirk and asks where Jo is and suggests he find new employment. Jo is in a lab 2 with others.

Alfa leaves a rapidly freezing prison and teleports to Grenade.

Grenade Texts John to tell him where they have put chill and about the base.

 

Page 32/

Alfa looks around the office area and finds the computer. He tries uses it to bring up a layout for the building, but fails to find one.

 

Page 33/

The two walk down the corridor to lab 2.

Bypassing the door lock, they open the door and Grenade looks the first person he sees in the eys and says, ‘Jo?’ while suggesting they tell the truth.

It turns out she is she against her will as the other four here where. Alfa, ‘you are free to go’ he says.

Jo says ‘what about the guards?’, Alfa says ‘we will deal with them go’.

 

Page 34/

The next door they open has maintenance  staff and cleaners which they also send away.

 

Page 35/

The last door they come to holds a training room and rest area for the guards.

There are 12 people in this area, some practicing with their chill guns on targets. Some resting and some having instruction by others.

There appears to be two Chill sergeants and ten henchmen.

 

Page 36/

Alfa calls on them to surrender, ‘Chill is behind bars and you are outmatched, give yourselves up now!’

The response is that there are 12 of us you are outnumbered, and we do not believe you can keep chill out.

Grenade, looks a sergeant in the eyes and suggests that he ought to tell the others to give in. ‘You want to convince them to lay down arms and leave this robot is armed and very dangerous.’

This works and the 12 guards run for it leaving their guns behind.

 

Page 37/

Grenade takes a target as a souvenir, while they wait for MI5 to arrive and take charge.

 

Page 38/

Mi5 arrive led by John and take control.

Alfa and Grenade head out and encounter a crowd of hospital staff and others including press.

 

Page 39/

Next days headlines and article by M Millington in the Chronicle.

Robot Alfa and criminal called Grenade cause havoc at Circle area including the hospital.

Patents and staff put in danger as area freezes over, stopping life threatening operations to stop.

Police say a criminal gang under a Captain Chill had a base there, but that effective security action had dealt with them.

It is rumoured that Alfa removed the Super powered villain to prison and freed the hostages while Grenade fought a Ice warrior however non of this can be verified.

Are these heroes causing more damage than the criminals they proclaim to stop?

This reporter wonders.
