(This takes place immediately after New Darker World)
The days and months had led them all to this moment, the moment in which they take the world in their hands and crush it. For one moment before the storm they all wait as the soldiers slowly fall into place, Veronica stands above a single stair case. She slowly takes a step off the ledge and falls for what seemed hours until she is caught by a net, suddenly wires wrap around her and she smiles bright as the everything begins to take shape. As the wires slowly wrap themselves around her bodies they levitate her into the air, slowly the ceiling opens and she rises into the skies above The Hill.
As the masses flood the streets and continue on with their lives, they have no idea that even now there world is about to change forever. Within each high rise building men and women are working tirelessly, making sure every connection is fed into everything possible. The idiot employees in the buildings see the extra wires and higher electricity as nothing but an everyday thing, each worker bee has been infected with a single scarab that controls their every move. To the outside world they look like any dead eyed employee around the world, but soon they will show what they have been preparing for....a press of a button to end it all.
Suddenly as construction on a random road continues a lone worker looks to the skies, his ear towards the sky he looks around and grabs a pick axe. Walking over to the foreman he looks him up and down and with a smile "The Children are the key..." Swinging hard he slams the axe into the mans face caving it in, a cloud of blood and mist sprays the worker. As others try to grab him and take him down he continues, pushed by the scarab inside he walks even though men are at his feet dragging along with every step. Walking up to his truck he opens the back, a large device thats connected by countless wires into the construction site whirs to life. With a press of a button a wave of energy explodes from the device, incinerating everything in the first explosion. The wave of energy continues throughout the city washing over everyone, everyone it touches looks in confusion as to what just happen....
Explosions rip through the streets as each energy wave spreads throughout the streets, people are just as confused with the explosions as to the reactions of all the nearby children. In each street three out of five children look to the sky as if awaiting answers from something above. A nearby woman tries to wake her children out of there trance, in each home two out of five children are each infected with the desire for answers from above. And soon they will get there answers...
As Veronica rises further into the skies above the Dome, a single tower rises with her high above the streets. As they stop above the Dome she looks with a bright smile taking in a deep breathe, as she looks around she cannot wait for whats to come. They all will come once she calls out to them, and with each soldier who comes the plan moves further and further to being complete. Waves of energy flow from Veronica and she cannot take it anymore she must give out the call, and as Daemon stares up at her he nods and she lets loose "Come my children,for your future is at hand. COME!" As she screams the message is sent all over the globe. Each explosion that ripped through the streets of Texas, L.A, and New York were triggers for something more.
Adding to Veronica's own powerful abilities they allow for her to transfer a link to the Hill, a Link that the whole world will see. They will remember this day when Evil made its first strike, the children are their future.
Inside The Dome
As Veronica's screams echoed throughout the Dome, Daemon prepares himself as the cameras begin to come to life and he is at the center of their attention. Throughout the world Televisions scramble and Daemon appears, inside Madison Square Garden his face is seen in its fullest. His terror inducing appearance plastered on each television screen he starts "Today is the day I push the world to its limits, we aim for the perfection of our race. We are that perfection, it is calculated that two to three out of five children have dormant genes within their bodies. We just released two simultaneous reactions all around the world, One will awaken the dormant X gene in these children. The second is the subliminal message, this has been circulating through the worlds electronics for months. We have been preparing for this for many days, and I am confident enough that my influence has reached every corner. Now I wont be arrogant enough to believe it worked everywhere, I am sure some of you out there were smart enough to see this coming. But enough of the children will be affected, and that is all I need...enough." Daemon takes a deep breath and continues with a wide smile upon his face "We are the Vine Villains, and today we show everyone that perfection is the only answer. Stop us if you can, but I will acquire enough children to continue on with my plans and there is nothing you can do about it." With that the connection was terminated.
Veronica lowered slowly from the tower and into Daemons arms, she was exhausted from using so much of her powers to make this happen. Smiling to his Veronica he strokes her cheek "You did good, now we watch as the world stumbles over itself trying to keep these children from us. Once your ready prepare everyone, we will have a fight very soon a fight we most certainly will win." Even as he spoke those children who succumbed to the message within the area were pouring into the Dome and around it. Soon he would have enough for his army of Symbiotes...and even sooner he will rule this world.
