A Maximal is Captured

ZMGZ?Q?!?! Matty Q!!! We bagged another one of Iron Mike’s Lieutenants! Do you remember that movie Planet of the Apes 15? I know, I can’t believe they went on for that long. But the PRECURSOR to that flick was something that Goggle calls Hing Hong. I think it was one of those Japanese films with the guy in a Lizard suit and the mini-1/100 replicas modeled after Neo-Tokyo – Old Edo of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Whatever…

SO WE SANDBAGGED MAXIMILLION THE MAXI-PAD MANIMAL!!! MAX-FACTOR!!! Seriously though, I know you’re not aware of your surroundings but I am and we’re not in Kansas anymore. I moved out of the Tomorrow Legion HQ under some deep suspicions and major apprehension concerning Matt Lee River, our boss, Spirit. I moved out feeling completely demolished after Virgil went off the reservation – and off the deep end and killed a bunch of innocent people right in front of us. And I also moved out because I needed some serious alone-time with my new libr…er, mentor. Oh! I’m under the tutelage of Charlie Kane now. What? NO!!! Of course not you dirty girl! He’s my teacher – of ARCANE knowledge – not CARNAL knowledge!!!!! He’s teaching me SPELLS!!! NOT POSITIONS!?!?!

Ugh. I don’t wanna die a virgin. I guess there are worse things. I kinda wanted it to be with Verge. But, well, that ain’t gonna happen now. I only have two months to make it special. I mean, I’m not just gonna walk into Waingroh and make a mountain out of a molehill. Y’know? Let’s see…I wonder – WHO is the lucky gentleman going to be? What? eBay? Are you kidding?!!? Besides, I don’t need a paycheck THAT badly. MattyQ!!! It has to be SPECIAL!!! It’ll be my first time – and my LAST time. Should it be a friend? Hmmm…who do we know? How about definitely not Zeau, definitely not Salivo, definitely not Virge, umm…Spirit? Put him on the maybe list. Bogart? Maybe list. Michelle? Uhhh…maybe list. Doc Prop? Ugh no. His bat? That’s disgusting. It IS a very nice bat. Fine…maybe list. Diane? Hmm…okay, she’s like a GODDESS – yes-list. Oh, is that our first one on that list? Nice! Now we’re making some headway. Marrakooch? Gods no! Besides, he’s black. Well he’s an Alien. Black Aliens still count! You know that!?!?! Thaumaturge? Oh – be still my aching heart! YES list. Whiz Kid? Uhhh…he’s cute enough, nerdy but cute. Yes list.

If we only had a bit more time!!!!

Oh, my bad, I’m going to die in a nuclear explosion in 2.5 months from Iron Mike. I totally forgot that part. I know…it’s kinda important right?

Oh gosh…what if I don’t die? I might have to live the rest of my life knowing I lost my virginity to…a squirrel.

I better die.

So Charlie has been teaching me the correct names for spells. I can same with surety and conviction that Maximal fell prey to a Carpet of Adhesiveness. You know he was one of Iron Mike’s big bad enforcer lieutenants, right? He was half man, half ape, super-strong, butt-ugly, and smart. Kind of a deadly combination – just like Virgil – but Vigilance was DEEP under-cover, interviewing for the open Lieutenant position in Iron Mike’s Army and the tryouts were in the fighting pits. So we made a plan – I got my cell phone taken away by the Janitor – but THEY made a plan and I made fun of them. Oh! And I found this crazy pic of two pandas…y’know…uh, like…YOU KNOW…! They are so LAZY!!! Anyway, so Bogart led us to this Zoo-Bar with all kinds of furry critters. We made more of a plan and got the Furious Furries to lead the Charge of the Light Brigade.

Infiltrating the fight club was easy enough – and all of us stood out – but you’re not gonna BELIEVE who I saw fighting – MY BROTHER CONRAD?!?! I was invisible so he couldn’t see me but he looked, um, kinda buff. I think he’s been taking steroids or something. He kinda got his ass whupped which was humorous to me but just when I wanted to rub it in the MAIN EVENT started and Virgil, the Janitor, Bogart, and I converged on the Grape Ape. Admittedly, in a fair fight, I think I’d have been the only one left alive – but that’s because the Janitor isn’t actually alive – but I think he might be functional. But we’re super-heroes. If you break the law there’s no law that says we have to fight fair. Right? I’m not sure if that makes sense but I snuck up on him and tried to cast a Carpet of Adhesiveness under his feet – and wouldn’t you know, his super smell and hearing and my barely prowling semi-silence in the din of the arena ALMOST alerted him to my presence. It was scary. Honestly, MattyQ – I probably would have crumpled right then and there had he heard me and swung first. But no, HAZEL shot first.

Verge leapt into the air, seeing an opportunity and taking it, he pounded his fist into the ground the way I had seen him do before – only this time I was literally blown off my feet AND my Armor of Ethan had vaporized. I hadn’t even taken a hit and he completely obliterated it from full. When I had shaken off the daze enough to come to I saw the carnage and devastation. If his shockwave knocked me over, in my Morphus form, and concussively knocked me out – then imagine what it had done to mere humans, the bystanders. Oh no! Doc Prop was already in triage mode and ferrying innocent people blown to bits, to make-shift sleds and, providing first-aid. It was a scene straight out of a movie; like a bomb had gone off inside of a nice little confined space – a bomb shelter – the fighting pit. Some quick thinking got everyone together and Maximal yielded. He was a manimal of honor and no longer resisted or fought us back.

Alas, it was too late for many of the people. Some quick thinking allowed me, Doc Prop, and Diane to save a few lives – but Diane looked more bloodthirsty than Vigilance. I opened a Doorway to the nearest hospital only AFTER Doc Prop reminded me that I shouldn’t be opening a doorway for our ESCAPE. Sigh…I think I was definitely in shock. I remember my first thought wasn’t for saving those people and, of that, I’m ashamed. My first thought was…OMG…Vigilance-Vengeance just killed a bunch of innocent people. I have to help him escape. It makes me very sad. But, I came to my senses and changed the intention of my destination – the Doorway opened into the Waingroh hospital and we flooded their Emergency Room with bloody bodies and the death throes of the dying. Vengeance did not come back with us. He took one last long look at the group…at me…and told me he wasn’t returning.

That was the last time I saw my friend. That was the night Vigilance died and Vengeance was born.

Nice work! I need to write Vigilance exit. Nice play on words about becoming Vengeance and it may appear to other characters that way, BUT……. Virgil was not aware of his powers manifesting yet.
