Alarms blaring, cheers filling the stale air Black Scorpion reaches her next objective.
"Hicks!" She calls out stopping in front of a smoke filled cell "You in there Hicks?"
"That's General Hicks to you" a gruff voice replies back "Toss me them keys!" he commands.
"Here ya go General" she says as she throws the keys to him.
He unlocks his metal band and yet another alarm goes off. Just then Lunarbeam shows up stopping in a hurry.
"Found him I see" He states with his shadow like voice.
General Hicks unlocks his door and walks out. The three of them stand side by side blocking the hallway.
"OK. Scorpion you stay with me”
"Sure thing Hicks" .
"Beamer, Get to the armory and get us those weapons" Hicks continues.
Lunarbeam takes off flying like the wind further down the hall, cape flapping from the current. Scorpion and Hicks stand ready for the next wave of guards.
A dozen guards come storming towards them.
"You ready, Girlie? Hicks asks as he takes a puff of his cigar.
"As ready as you are, old man"
The group of guards come pounding in at the pair swinging their stun batons. Scorpion dispatched one guard with a front kick directly to the throat. While Hicks kills another by dodging an attack spinning the guard around and snapping his neck. The remaining guards frantically try to subdue these two inmates but this duo is far superior in comparison.
The two split, Scorpion with a barrage of teleportation attacks and Hicks with a series of martial arts and grappling maneuvers. Scorpion ports to dodge an attack from one guard and re appears in the middle of applying a spinning front kick knocking out another. Spinning back around to kick the first guard in the back of the leg so she can kick him in the head as he falls backward. Hicks blocks a baton attack with his forearm grabbing the guards wrist, flipping him over onto his back while disarming him using the baton to whack him in the face sending an electric current through his brain. Hitting another guard in the stomach with the same baton to raise his knee violently upward as the guard bends down, breaking his nose.
Meanwhile, Lunarbeam soars through the hallways in search of his goal. Stoping at the armory door, he can hear the guards inside in a panic.
"Hm." he says with a smirk.
Inside the room, the guards are armed to the teeth. They ready their machine guns, rifles and shotguns as the door blows open with a bright white light. Lunarbeam storms in beams of light flying through the air in all different directions. Guns fire randomly as the guards panic.
"Get Him! Get Him!" one guard cries as a beam of light burns through his chest.
"Shit!" another yells as three of his friends are killed right before his eyes simultaneously, their bodies collapsing to the ground.
In desperation one of them throws a grenade.
"If we can't stop you then I'll kill you and everyone else if I have to!"
The grenade heads directly for him but he calmly raised his arm and opens his hand, palm facing the grenade, and a force field of light all of a sudden surrounds it. The grenade explodes inside of the ball of energy bouncing of the walls of the sphere shaped prison. He motions his hand toward the remaining guards and releases the fire from the sphere burning them alive. As the fires fade he grabs his accomplises' gear and encases it in a large ball of light that follows him floating in the air as he flies out of the room.
Lunarbeam flies down the hallway following the trail of bodies until he reaches his friends as they finish off the last two guards. Scorpion wraps her legs around a guard's head and arm, flipping him to the ground. She applies pressure then twists violently snapping his neck and nips up. Hicks blocks another guard's attack with his right arm reaching up immediately grabbing his hair pulling his head back and with his left arm takes his cigar and puts it out in the man's eye.
"Impressive" Lunarbeam says.
"That's called takin him to the woodshed, son" Hicks replies as he pulls another cigar out of his pocket and puts it in his mouth.
The ball of light disappears dropping the gear to the floor.
"That's it baby!" Scorpion exclaims and she rips off her jumpsuit and begins to put on a black and purple spandex body suit.
She puts on her purple mask which barely covers her eyebrows and cheekbones. She stands with thigh high purple boots, purple gloves. The rest of her is covered in a skin tight black suit. She grabs a small metal cylinder from the ground and presses a button on it extending the cylinder into a bo staff. General Hicks also changes, to black and dark green army pants and a matching over coat unbuttoned, black army boots, dark green tank top, black fingerless gloves and a black and green army helmet. His belt carries multiple grenades and other gadgets. He has a black eagle style pistols strapped to his leg, a machine gun with the strap around his shoulder and torso and a high powered rifle in his hand.
"Locked and loaded!" he calls out.
The three of them head for the main exit into the court yard, where they are sure to have a fight on their hands.
They arrive at the door. Choppers and alarms and an army of guards can be heard on the other side.
"Here we go, team." Hicks states
"Lets kick some ass!" Scorpion replies.
Lunarbeam blows the door off sending it flying into a group of eight guards taking them out of commission.
“Good aimin, son" Hicks proclaims as he steps out of the door and uses his rifle to shoot a guard from the guard tower in the head.
"Dido" Lunarbeam replies coldly.
Scorpion ports from behind them and appears inside another guard tower with her staff extended. She swings it around hitting a man in the stomach with the tip electrocuting him.
"Careful hunny, I sting." She says tauntingly.
Lunarbeam flies up in the air and begins firing beams of white energy destroying all of the search lights and a few guards that were in the way. Hicks runs through the yard machine gun blazing, killing scores of guards that get in his wake. Scorpion teleporting all over the place also killing her share of them. Lunarbeam flying through the air provides interference, destroying a chopper by shooting a large beam of light right through the cockpit, killing the pilot in the process, causing the chopper to crash and burn.
The trio is almost to the other side of the yard. Just then a garage door opens and a large tank pulls out aiming it's guns right at the them. They freeze on the spot.
"Shit!" Scorpion yells angrily.
"Shoulda grabbed my bazooka" adds Hicks.
Lunarbeam stands ready, waiting to put a force field up at the last minute to try and protect them from the blast. There is a loud bang, the three inmates and the remaining guards look around confused. BOOM again.
"What the.." one of the guards begins to say.
Just then the nine foot high brick wall on the other side of the tank collapses. Then the sound of metal crashing together, the tank shakes. All of a sudden the pilot of the tank comes flying through the air from the other side of it straight into one of the guard towers. A figure jumps up onto the tank, the remaining guards fire but with a simple move of the arms the bullets bounce off. The mysterious figure then rips the barrel of the tank right off and throws it towards the remaining guards. As they scatter for safety this figure calls out to the three inmates who still stand ready to fight.
"I'm Carter Steel and I have a proposition for you."
