Hello and welcome to the first round of the NEW Fan-Fic Versus Tournament 2.0!!! Here we have the very first match up. TommytheHitman and ImpurestCheese were given the choice of writing Flash or Zoom. Thing is, they had to reverse their roles. Flash is the villain and Zoom is the hero! But wait... there's more! They must remain in character!
While voting, please take these into account: story, writing skills, grammar, and keeping with the rules stated above. Vote for the story you think is best, not because one may be your friend.
Zoom by TommytheHitman (Also I have not read anything with Zoom in the New 52 so please forgive me)
"NOBODY MOVE OR I WILL VIBRATE MY FINGERS INTO HIS BRAIN AND OUT THROUGH THE OTHER END!"
Eobard Thwane held his three index fingers to the crouching man's head. He had no idea who the man was or what his name was. He was in the way. That was all that mattered. Thwane quickly glanced around the bank. Faces stared back at him. Terrified faces. Somewhere in the room a child started to cry. Thwane turned his head and spotted one of the bankers tapping a button beneath his table. The silent alarm had just been activated meaning that Allen would be here at any moment.
"Go!" Thwane yelled. "Get out of here you fools! You don't want to be here when the boyscout arrives!"
Thwane pushed the crouching man to the floor before turning and dashing behind a desk. He crouched behind it while waiting for the familiar sound of the sound barrier breaking. About half a second later Thwane heard what sounded like an explosion before lifting his head up. What he saw was not exactly what he wanted.
"Zoom?! Wow! I can't believe I get to fight a Flash villain!"
Thwane scowled. "I've seen you! You were responsible for that explosion a few months ago! You're that... Kid Flash guy!"
"The one and forever only!"
"Well then kid. You're not who I wanted to meet but I guess you'll have to do. If you want to be the Flash so much you'll have to work to earn his stripes!"
Thwane laughed before running towards the teenager. Kid Flash barely had time to react before Zoom's punch smashed him in the face. Thwane was pretty sure he saw a tooth fly out of the kid's mouth and onto the floor.
"Ah. Look... maybe I went a bit far..." Thwane started to say.
"Damn right you did!" Kid Flash said before tackling Thwane to the ground. In two seconds Kid Flash had laid in 16 punches into Thwane's face. Thwane kicked Kid Flash off him before standing up and wiping his face of blood.
"Look! This whole fight is pointless! You're NOT the Flash! Which means..."
Thwane picked up a chair before throwing it towards Kid Flash.
"I HAVE NO INTEREST IN YOU!"
Kid Flash ducked underneath the chair before sprinting back towards Thwane. The kid raised his fist and let the speed and momentum add to it's power. Thwane simply raised his hand and blocked the punch. The air rippled around the pair and Kid Flash was sent flying backwards.
"I must admit." Thwane muttered. "I'm impressed."
"If you're so impressed wait till I kick the crap out of you!"
"You do realize that you don't stand a chance? You could just give up and I could go about my business."
"I have a question dude. Why'd you let all those people go?"
"Because... whenever I kill someone... I do it to pi$$ off the Flash. This time there was no point in it."
"...why do you want to kill the Flash?"
"Because he's the opposite of everything I believe in. We have the same powers. The same costume. Ish. But VERY different view points which is why I won't stop until I've destroyed the Flash and everything he stands for."
"...dude. You're messed up."
"Well..." Thwane smiled. "That's a matter of opinion."
Thwane chuckled before zooming off into thin air. Kid Flash stood up and rubbed his head.
"What a freak..." He muttered.
ImpurestCheese - The Flash Bandit
Iris West's hands shook as she picked up the video cassette tape left on her front door, the label down the spine reading 'Flash Public Service Announcement #1' plastered in thick red letters. Taking the tape inside she slot it into her VCR and pressed play, the static on the screen forming into the front of the Central City Museum. The footage was shaky, as if the person holding the recorder was nervous or impatient. After a minute of inactivity the doors of the museum exploded outwards and alarm bells rang as five figures ran out the front, four of them flanking the fifth as he pushed a cart with an Aztec tablet strapped to it. With a gasp Iris realised that she knew all five of them, everyone knew them, the brightly coloured thieves known as the Rouges were infamous within the city limits.
"Well it appears gentlemen that we have outrun Zoom not to mention the Flash Bandit." The Mirror Master announced as Weather Wizard summoned up a localized rain storm that quickly filled the pothole with water. Bending down the group's only woman, the Golden Glider dipped one of her skates in the water, the surface instantly freezing to form a glistening mirror in the middle of the street.
"Don't count your chickens before they hatch Weather Wizard." The gaudily coloured Trickster cackled as he juggled as clutch of eggs before dropping them onto the pavement. "Whoops now were those the landmines or the instant oil slick." He pondered as the last member of the team Heat Wave pushed the cart down the steps towards the puddle. Before he could even get halfway the camera rapidly accelerated towards the museum and the recorder slammed his free fist into the cart, the stone tablet jerking out of its strapping and smacking the porter in the face calling him to stagger back.
"Watch that last step it's lethal." The cameraman joked.
"Well looks like you spoke too soon." Weather Wizard chided Mirror Master. "No matter he can't catch what he can't see." He stated as he summoned up a bank of fog around himself and the other rouges. For a minute the camera was blacked out before it started spinning wildly, the sheer effect making Iris feel nauseous as she watched the fog disappear with Weather Wizard following seconds later as he was struck by a whirlwind of blows before eventually falling from the sustained onslaught.
"Looks like you're a little under the weather, Wizard." The cameraman stated as Mirror Master eyed the puddle covertly whilst the Golden Glider and Trickster kept their eyes locked on the man who had neutralized two of their number in a few seconds.
"You're pretty good at the jokes but leave them to me." The Trickster snickered as he leapt at the cameraman, his target shifting three inches to the left and letting the insane villain smack into Mirror Master, the blow knocking them both into the puddle. In a blink of the eye the cameraman dashed over to Weather Wizard picked up his 'wand' and hurdled it at the puddle, shattering the ice and trapping the pair in the shards.
"Is that seven years bad luck or not?" The cameraman asked the Golden Glider as she slashed forward, aiming a bladed kick at him. Catching her, the cameraman kissed her on the lips before removing her skates and clicking them together, a shower of frozen water entombing her in a solid block of ice. "And Dorothy makes five." the man filming the action announced before turning the camera on himself to reveal a well built man dressed in red with a yellow lightning bolt emblazoned on the front. "Well look at this," he added dashing over to the Aztec tablet, "Rare stone tablet, must have cost a fortune to recover. Well guess what Central City it's mine now." The Flash told his audience as he put the tablet under his arm. "Let it be known that…whoa" He spun out of the way just as a lick of flame darted out. Turning he saw Heatwave back on his feet, a bespectacled teenage youth held at gunpoint in his arms.
"Bad night for a walk Pointdexter." Heat Wave hissed his voice crackling like the leading edge of a forest fire. "Now give me the tablet or the geek becomes charcoal."
"You want it." The Flash stated as he chucked the tablet into the ring of dropped eggs. "Then go get it." With a single lunge Heat Wave reached for the prize only to feel cold air on his face as the Flash ran past over the eggs and grabbed the tablet as the concealed land mines detonated, the explosions showering the last rouge standing with thick adhesive. Dashing over the Flash helped the hostage up and gave him a quick check over for bruises.
"Okay here's the deal Central City." The Flash announced, "I love this town, I love everyone in this place which is why I am going to be this city's ultimate criminal. The one a city this great deserves. I will stand up for the little guy but be warned, if you lose anything, if it gets stolen by 'thugs' such as these." He stopped and gestured at the defeated Rouges. "Then it's mine and you are not going to get it back. Now for more information check out my website." He gestured again at the gratified URL on the steps of the museum before putting the lens cap on the camera. "Now here endeth the lesson." he stated before dashing off, the sound of whooshing air masking the noise of the camera smashing on the ground.
