Since this thread was posted 2 years ago with not a single post in it .... I am hijacking this thread .....

Cyclops

VS

Deadshot

Location: Washingon DC, The White House

Scenario: Floyd Lawton is ordered by Amanda Waller to travel to Washington DC and assassinate US President Barrack Obama at the White House, resulting in a nation wide uproar and inevitable chaos similar to that in LA during the 1990s but on a grand scale unlike any other. Deciding to finally break his rebellious habit and just having nothing better to do, Floyd decides he's up to the task of changing American history. Scott Summers just so happens to be in DC near the White House, contemplating his role as an American citizen and a mutant figure head. Floyd, given the credentials to pose as a guard on the President's private helicopter sees his target exit the the main building. As he lines up his shot, the assassin can only wonder why he was given green bullets. He also notices the President slow his movement and squint a little bit, like he thought something was up....Floyd shrugs, lines up a head shot and fires .... he hit's his target, but not in the head, somehow he moved his body fast enough to avoid a fatal blow. The POTUS dropped to his knees, looked back at his assassin and smiled. Floyd finally realized why he needed those bullets, and nearly shat himself when he saw the President pick up the kryptonite bullet and get back up. Deadshot attempted to try again when the President's eye began to glow red, next his wrist gauntlets melted and exploded but luckily he had a spare pistol. Secret Servicemen raised arms but were gunned down as Deadshot dared to make his escape, he'd been sent on a suicide mission fitting of an elite Suicide Squad member to kill the president, not knowing it was actually President Calvin Ellis, the Superman of Earth-23, born of Krypton as Kalel.

Clavin had been posing as a decoy for the President, Amanda Waller found out and decided to send someone who could do the job without actually killing Obama but with the same disastrous results and at the same time removing an unwanted Superman from another universe (as if there weren't enough already). Unfortunately she didn't know that kryptonite doesn't work too well on kryptonians from other universes and thought it was worth the risk of testing it out anyway by sending one of her best operatives on a blind date with an alien president. Cyclops, having heard the gunfire and yelling, made his way to the court yard running past injured Secret Servicemen until he saw the President just standing there. The President saw that Cyclops wasn't human and gave him the okay to pursue the assassin and save the White House after learning of his cause, once Scott's head was turned, the President vanished (he went to ensure the safety of Barack's family). It was up to the leader of the X-Men to end this terrorist threat once and for all, but the Suicide Squad leader won't go down without a fight to the death. The Battle for the White House Begins!!!

Rules: Random Encounter

  • No Prep
  • In Character/Morals On
  • Resources consist of fallen Secret Servicemen's firearms, miscellaneous objects for projectile use and furniture for cover.
  • Bystanders are civilians, butlers, politicians, gardeners and injured Secret Servicemen.

Conditions: Incapacitation/Knock Out/Death Count As Win.

  • Cyclops starts at the visitors entrance to the White House building. He doesn't want to accidentally harm innocents or cause excessive property damage to the White House, keeping his optic lens at a low radius for more accurate and concentrated blasts. If Scott is in too much danger or just gets too pissed off, he will turn up the heat but will not remove his visor under any circumstances. Scott can also pick up firearms should he need extra firepower. His visor has also been upgraded to have limited X-Ray/Inferred capabilities (Red-X) within a 10 ft radius and he knows the layout of the entire White House.

  • Deadshot starts in the east room of the White House building. He doesn't care about property damage or killing innocents and may even use them as distraction's, diversions or even human shields. He has about 10 rounds in his pistol and can pick up ammo from the Secret Servicemen he injured or killed. Floyd will keep his cool and stay true to his character unless he sees something that could kill him. Floyd retains his armored suit, helmet and scope visor, but his wrist pistols are damaged and cannot be used. His scope visor has advanced targeting systems and sonar capabilities up to 10 ft in diameter.

Cyclops should be able to take this assuming it's before his powers changed

His ability to pierce through the surroundings and carry on through is a big advantage in this situation and he would be willing to kill someone like Deadshot.

@dextersinister: Is it in character for Scott to kill new enemies on sight?

#11 Edited by lesterlawton (485 posts) - - Show Bio

Lawton takes this simply by dressing an agent in his gear, surrounded by other dead agents. Cyclops stops to investigate & gets a round in the back of his head. He's tricked Batman before, so it's not a stretch for him to trick Cyclops.

Thanks, the pres didn't tell him to kill him though, it's not like when Xavier tells him to stop a bad mutant to blast his brains out. But once again, I appreciate the input.

It isn't. He kills under extreme situations or as a last resort.

@god_spawn: Had a feeling that was the case, thanks for the clarification. I'm obviously not notable on Scott's general character traits in recent comics (recent as in like the past 5 years), but anyway...you think he'd be driven to that point here? Floyd may just kill enough civilians to push him there, or get him in a mean spot.....

#18 Edited by God_Spawn (36000 posts) - - Show Bio

@ancient_0f_days: If he's killing civilians, then it is very well within his character to slaughter Flloyd if he gets the chance. Cyclops does not condone killing unless it is necessary and if the good outweighs the bad. If he feels killing a few terrorists who are going to kill some mutants or harm a city, then he will eventually kill them. It won't be his first action, but if he can avoid he will try, but if he can't he has no qualms about ripping someone to dust. Even his new persona where he is the mutant revolutionist he isn't killing people left and right. Some cops were going to forcibly arrest a teenage mutant who just discovered his powers after getting mugged but the cops decided to go after the mutant instead of mugger and Cyclops just said for them to get their hands off of him and Magneto disarmed them.

@god_spawn: Ah, I see. Thank you for the heads up, I just needed to make sure I wasn't limiting Scott since I didn't know how far he was willing to go.

And I think this could go either way, tbh. Cyclops has the power advantage and can break through the cover and given that the guys are in a closed space, despite room to dodge/hide behind, that allows Cyclops for some ricochet shots given the chance. But Deadshot is the better marksman and has the advantage with civilians to use as shields which puts Cyclops at a disadvantage if he uses them. And given the fact he has a limited amount of munitions since I guess his wrist pistols are broken (I read that right, correct?), he will need to measure his shots better, but given the equipment he has that shouldn't be a problem. And also, since Flloyd does have the armor and it isn't in Cyclops' nature to immediately crank out bone bursting or body piercing blasts, Flloyd's armor should grant him the chance to take a few hits. But the more civilians he wastes, the less opportunity he has for Cyclops to start doing those bone breaking and body piercing blasts, and considering he can punch through steel, pierce the Blob all the way through, it will get through when he decides to up the output.

I vote Deadshot

@ancient_0f_days nice setup! ^.^

Thanks :)

..... I guess his wrist pistols are broken (I read that right, correct?) .....

Correct indeed, if you read the scenario, Calvin Ellis melts them .... I think it'd be too much of an advantage since he has explosive ammunition for his wrist pistols, limiting him to standard firearms seemed more balanced. Thanks for the descriptive summary btw, pretty much what I had in mind as well.
