Mike sat in the darkened room, two more cars passed by the broken down dock house, their lights slipped between the old metal sheets like water out a broken glass. His thoughts betrayed him in the darkness as he wondered if his team would be up to the task in front of them, He had said nothing when Kurrent had come to his wife and asked him to help form the greatest hero team that ever lived. He knew of Sarah’s plans and she knew that in order to deal with every threat alive there would have to be one part of them that got their hands dirty. Mike was use to shedding blood if he had to be honest it was all he knew. It had been Sarah that asked him to collect a team who would follow him and do what needed to be done, the things that the main core of the team where to busy to deal with or could not be seen doing them. So Mike had set out and collected his team, first he had chosen Crazy Eight and Talon from there he picked his number two Midnighst and the rest of the team just fell into place from there. He knew they would do the job no questions asked. The light over his head flicked on as Crazy entered carrying four larger dominos pizzas and several soft drinks “Do you always have to sit in the dark.” Mike pushed up off the old metal chair and made his way across the cold stone floor. “I was brooding “ Crazy laughed and threw him a coke “Shame it’s not stronger” crazy whispered “You going to be okay on this one, if it’s to close to the…” Crazy lifted a hand “Hey if Talon can be strong enough so can I.” Mike smiled “Is that just because you don’t want a girl looking tougher then you.” Crazy laughed a little “Damn straight.”
Mike opened one of the boxes and pulled out a slice of cheese pizza and moved over to a small metal table with four chairs to match, that sat directly beneath a set of lights. In the middle of the table was a small black device “it’s almost time, where are the girls.” Just as mike finished Cassidy O’Rourke came in the same entrance as Crazy she smiled at the two of them and picked up one of the boxes as she took her seat. Cassy or Dark Huntress to most was a welcomed edition to the team, she had a tough up brining as would most with a father who was a police man, what never helped Cassy was that she had four uncles and an aunt who where also on the force, she knew the area after all she had grown up here before her family where killed. With most of the team their past where covered in pain and blood and she was no different, hence her place here. Taking a sip of his coke Mike nodded at her and she replied in kind, the air around them remained silent as they thought about the job at hand. It was by no means going to be easy in fact half the team where in while Mike’s team remained in while Mid had the other half in . They would have to strike at the same time to stop their targets from going to ground. Just then a rustle next to Crazy broke Mike from his train of thought and he Saw talon sitting across from him, he smiled and she looked away. Crazy picked up a pizza box and slid it over to her “I got you crust, I know you like them” Mike stood and pressed a small red button on the black device.
A green hologram opened on the table above them, the room was very different from theirs. It was well decorated and Mike saw the edge of a tall fridge in the background. Sitting at a square table where Mid and his team. There was a six hour time difference between them; it was one in the afternoon in and seven in . “Hi boss” mid said with a smile, they all knew why they where here, their targets where twin brothers Rufus and Jerome, Rufus was stationed in Paris, he would use his pheromone powers to trick girls into working for him, while they where under his spell he would hock the girls on a cocktail of drugs and send them to America swearing a magical life awaited them. Once they arrived Rufus took control, where his brother had the power to trick people, he had the power to beat them senseless. He would lock them up in run down houses and pimp them out for a good price, using them till they where useless or dead and throw them out on the street or simply kill them. The two brothers had stayed of the radar with their contacts in the Irish mob covering their tracks. The problem with the two of them that they where forever in contact and where heavily protected, they had at least two telepaths working for them and a couple of tanks, they forever moved their staff round so it was impossible to tell who was protecting who.
They needed to strike fast and end this with a message, so if anyone who had the idea of taking over from the brothers thought twice. Mike looked at Talon her gaze was firmly on the pizza crust that now rested in front of her. He had told her that she had to many bad father figures in her life and that she needed someone who would look after her, a big brother and if she needed that then he would be happy to call her his sister. Mike snapped his head up straight and once again returned to the mission “We all set in ?” mike asked and Mid nodded “Good you have the intel provided to us by the trinity,” Mike was cut off before he was finished “how do we know it’s good.” Crazy asked “My wife gave it to me” Mike replied, he heard a few laughs over the hologram “We go in two hours, you all know your jobs. Crazy you and Dark huntress draw their fire, myself and Talon will clear the house. Mid you relate the orders to your side of the team as you see fit. Any question get them in now, otherwise the mission is green.”
