JOE: Leads to trouble.

8.4

13.2
Toxin glaring up as Malice cringes.

INTERCOM: Well, IRON VENGEANCE made these machines and they helped him KILL YOUR CHILD.
MALICE: GRRRRR...
CAPTION: GINA: E-EDD-COULDN’T--
CAPTION: PATRICK: Gina! Gina, listen!

13.3
The intercom.

INTERCOM: So, now that THAT’S out of the way, and we’ve lured you down here so effortlessly- desperate for leads as you are- it’s over now.
INTERCOM: I’m taking your symbiote.

I love em both equally. They're a fun couple to write.

Edited by venomoushatred1001

1. Great writing as usual.

2. LOVE Toxin (and Malice too)!

3. The Wraith Symbiotes are BAD ASS!!!

4. The Daryll Smith and Nick Fury conversation was extremely well written (did I ever thank you for bringing Smith back from the grave?).

EDIT: Sorry I can't post more often. Internets down I my house.

  1. Thanks!
  2. So do I! :D
  3. They're just the robot forms, not symbiotes. You're thinking of the Iron Symbiotes. Think the same thing, but minus the symbiote. But they kept their names. So it's a bit confusing lol. Thanks though!
  4. Thank you (Yeah :D)!
  5. No big, dude. But your input is appreciated!

Another fine instalment.  
 
Highlights for me was the Joe sequence "it's clearly a trap, eh, f*ck it, they know we're here anyway", the chilling nonchalance of the Intercom, and the Fury being involved revelation.  
 
Now I just want Nick Fury to have his head eaten by Toxin =P

Posted by Deranged Midget

Daaaamn! Malice is going crazy! And with that reveal at the end with Fury, sh!t just got real!

Another excellent job dude!
