The men in the convoy screamed in agony as the vines slowly wrapped around them, piercing their flesh and drawing the life from them. They choked, watching the color drain from the world around them. One's eyes were drawn to the Arab that led them, Wilbur, as the vines slowly moved towards him. The came within centimeters of him...

WOOSH

For a brief moment, all motion in front of the hall was halted, everyone present feeling a burst of air like they'd been struck by a sonic boom. Dust, concrete, and smoke trailed up into the air all around them in a mad flurry of motion. Nobody could see what it was, only a red and gold blur in the center of the square, spinning like a cyclone of rage. Pebbles. Mere pebbles were flung through the air by the hundred, slamming the militia like they were armor-piercing rounds, dropping them by the dozen. Two dozen. Five seconds passed, and over two thirds of these defenders of Palm Bay were slumped, dead, a thousand pinprick wounds their cause of death.

Just as quickly, and with just as much force, the blur was gone. And Jonesy with him. All that was left in place was a small briefcase on the hood of a truck, with a hastily-made timer on the front. It read 3:59, and was counting down by the second.

Jonesy struggled to his feet, some distance away, shaking his body as the pain of electricity coursed through his veins. He'd seen the blur, and knew what it meant. Hold the line. But he couldn't; not when he was this weak. But that...

That was an easy fix. A mental block in his mind, released with a moment's concentration, and a howl of pain as the effects took hold.

It was hard to tell with the behemoth slumped over in agony, but he grew no less than two feet taller, and three feet wider as the muscle built upon his body. His snarling grimace grew larger, teeth gnashing in unstoppable anger.

And beneath it all, a sound that could almost have been mistaken for a whimper. When all was said and done, Jonesy straightened back up, cracking his knuckles and his bones in anticipation. In a voice lower and more powerful than before, he groaned the word "Five."

He reached down, slamming a fist into the concrete and ripped up a chunk of rock almost ten feet in diameter. Flexing his arms to test his strength for a moment he nodded, satisfied, and threw it like a frisbee, aimed at Ottis and Gav.

Fromanzio had been laying on a roof for some time now, sitting back and waiting for an opportunity when he saw what could only be a hurricane wiping out soldiers like nothing. He guessed that was probably Mercury with either the power to control the weather or move close to light speed. Either was likely and could earn him his title. Made sense anyway.

Fromanzio also saw what he supposed was Jonesey going absolutely crazy. He was about ready to start breaking people again but Fromanzio had a plan. This would be the best thing ever!

So what all did we bring again?

Flashbangs, gas, tear gas and lots of guns!

All of that necessary?

Maybe, but probably not.

Fromanzio was carrying a large bag that had been specially made for this kind of job. Each of his toys that needed it had a string attached to the tab one would pull to activate them. This would allow for one large explosion, followed by something worse.

Fromanzio quietly flew overhead of his large and oversized friend Jonesey and dropped his payload before flying off to get away from what had to be Mercury. No quips, this had to hit. Glass flasks of a clear gas flew above black covered canisters letting a growing stream of smoke above white canisters doing very little, seeming to wait.

Then it happened. Jonesey never saw it coming and after he threw a large rock at Grav, the brightest white in history covered him. That wasn't the worst of it though. As he clutched his eyes, he soon found it hard to breathe, the even worse part would come soon.

Robert and Raechel gathered what was left of the office supply's into a pile, and set it a blaze. Raechel helping the blaze a long with her powers while Robert was keeping an eye on things out side "we might have caught a break, some one just gassed the monster" Robert said as he lead Raechel out, the fire taking off. "Is it strange the only thing running through my head is 'Ring of Fire'?" Raechel said as they got back across the street.

She waited a few moments, the heat from her earlier attack had mostly dissipated, and the gasses hardly effected her view. When the flames burst through the roof, she took control of them, and with only a glance in Joneys direction the flames lept at him, engulfing him totally, leaving him no air to breath, any breath he'd take would only fill his lungs with fire, as well as igniting what ever flammable chemicals where just dropped on him to further compound the situation.

Rico saw the chunk of concrete soaring towards them, and immediately placed a hand on Blitzkrieg and Grav and shoved hard. They both stumbled forward and sprawled over, Rico hoped it was far enough away from where the concrete would lan-

THUMP

The concrete cracked where it hit Rico, and the concrete on the ground where Rico's head was driven gained a sudden spiderweb of cracks.

The slab of concrete slid over Rico's face and slid further along the road.

"Ow."

He looked to where he had shoved the other two - they didn't look like they'd been hit.

I'm very pressed for time right now, so I'll add the part where I get Saturday later. For now I'm just posting the parts immediately relevant to the fight.

This Jonesy had proved immune to everything that the Palm Bay army had on the field but time was being bought by Rico. More creative solutions were required; thankfully the wealth of heroes on the field provided ample means. Reports told him that Ottis would soon be on the field; John wagered that he was their best chance but it might have problems with the thick skin of Jonesy; but if the electricity could be channelled inside the odds were better. If not, then Palm Bay was doomed either way.

Turning to the comms officer; "Get some water distribution trucks there asap! Get Grav to deliver it directly to Jonesy and then have Ottis light him up. Smith is the contact on this!"
The office nodded and began relaying the orders.

-----------------

Smith was in a panic. Two thirds of the soldiers deployed at city hall had been wiped out by something; Mercury. This was power that mere mortals could not comprehend. But Smith was a soldier, and his commitment to the city; and specifically Martin; was unwavering and he would not let them down - vengeful god or not.

Orders were relayed, and Smith's commanding voice stilled the hearts and minds of the soldiers that remained; they had a job to do. New men were sent to recover the body of Wilbur, replacing those that had been struck down by mercury, their eyes stinging and bleeding they struggled to their feet and continued with their task. Those by the water staggered to their feet; sick still dripping from their mouths; and once again took up the hoses that were there in the event Grav was unable to do what was about to be asked of him.

Jonesy was now engulfed in flame; Smith spoke to Grav; "Grav! Ottis! As soon as the fire subsides, chuck the water at him! Ottis, once he starts to drink pour every volt you can down his throat!"

His lungs were literally on fire; surely Jonesy would drink; what man could resist the cool embrace of the water? Although this was no ordinary man...

With a nod he understood and enjoyed the view of the burning hulk.

" To old for this shit." Glancing over to Grav, " You ready, son?. Time to make history."

Gavin got off the ground, Ottis next to him. This Jonesy guy didn't look too remarkable? Why was he so hard to at least knock out for a few minutes? And why had the Arab referred to him as a Jonesy? Even with these questions circling around in his head, Gavin managed to sneer at Fromanzio as he flew past, though he had set the behemoth a flame. He turned to see Warren's plants tearing through Mercury's militia, but their own troops were nowhere to be found. Where was our back up after Jonesy showed up? Gavin managed to make out someone who wasn't being torn apart yelling at them.

"Grav! Ottis! As soon as the fire subsides, chuck the water at him! Ottis, once he starts to drink pour every volt you can down his throat!" Smith yelled. There were a few water distribution trucks on stand by. Gavin put two and two together.

"To old for this shit." Glancing over to Grav, "You ready, son?. Time to make history." Ottis said, a electricity dancing through his fingers. The old now hairless rocker grinned, ready to finish this.

"Yeah, the great battle of Jonesy..." Gavin joked, crouching slightly. He jumped in the air, towards Jonesy, and the water followed, the trucks floating slightly. Blobbly sections of water floated around him, following him towards their target.

"Open wide big guy!"

Fire.

Fire was everywhere.

Warren lunged forward, involuntarily, and fell to the ground, his roots binding him down. He clawed at the dirt beneath his tendril fingers, and let it seep slowly through gaps that would never close. Constantly splayed, they grew and grew ever more outward, searching, seeking the maker of the fire. The danger, the threat to him and all who were his own.

Even the orders shouted down the radio were dead to him. Nothing would hurt his children. Nothing would hurt him.

Ottis watched the floating dance of the water make its way to the burning behemoth. Fire didn't seem to bug the giant's outer parts, but the way he dances to trying to breathe is another interesting thing to watch. Ottis could of sat there all day if he didn't have a job to do. With a sigh he ran forward into the flames. Not even realizing his pants caught on fire. Only thinking about his family and how they are gone and it wasn't cause of him; It was assholes like this gray jackoff making everything worse!

A horrific sight did befall the crowd. Ottis reached the burning man as the water started to refresh his burning insides. Ottis slammed his left hand against this man's chest at the heart; as the skin bubbled blackened and melted to the gray man's skin. Ottis's right hand shot up into the water. A deafening scream as Ottis discharged every once he had into the the incredible Bulk.


A bright flash of light... and it was done.

Gavin landed, the smells of shard flesh and melting organs wasping their way out of Jonesy's nostrils, agape mouth, and eye-sockets. They'd done it, Jonesy's rough exterior was mostly unharmed but their was no doubt his insides were absolute mush. His body shook every few seconds, but by the looks of things he wasn't anywhere close to alive. Just whatever remained of nerve endings firing off randomly.

"Well, that's done." Gavin muttered solemnly. He knew that sometimes it couldn't be avoided, but Gavin still felt slightly rotten whenever he played a role in killing someone. Specifically when it was merely one person. He knew what he was doing, he knew that the actions he took would end up killing the person or people he was fighting, so why did he still feel kinda crappy about it after? This feeling was oddly amplified with supers...

Gavin realized the area around him was still on fire and quickly pushed upwards, leaving the ground again. As he pushed off, he aimed towards Ottis, getting him away from the fire as well. Rico was fine and Fromanzio...where the hell was Fromanzio?

"Hospital.. I ain't fireproof..."

Gavin zipped by and grabbed Ottis. Rico surveyed the wreckage, the corpse, and the fire. The fire was spreading, but not much Rico could do about that. The fire was spreading towards the trucks, beside which lay...

Charles.

Rico sprinted right by the flames, hoping his clothing wouldn't catch aflame, aiming for Charles' weakened body. He grabbed him and pulled him away from the vehicles before the flames got to him.

He shouted at the landscape around him, "ANYONE GOT AN INTACT VEHICLE? I NEED AN AMBULANCE OF SORTS, NOW!"

Fromanzio landed like a hawk on top of the Arab man. He still wasn't sure what his name was, but that was unimportant. It was time to break out the little gift from the kid. Sedatives, police grade used to subdue animals that are otherwise impossible to deal with. While he was pretty sure Wilbur would stay down for a while, it was worth putting him down a bit more. There were things to do.

Fromanzio yelled out to the crowd. "Great showing everyone! Fromanzio is quite proud of your work and with this level of cooperation we believe great things are in the future! Good luck to you all, there is fun to be had!"

Fromanzio flew off without another word, Wilbur in his arms and knocked out for at least five more hours. Probably more due to his injuries. Fromanzio had never preformed surgery before, especially on vocal cords, he was happy the kid had a computer, he was going to need to google this one.

Raechel started to subdue the flames, first the ones around Jonesy and the others then the building she'd set ablaze. The flames around the others died quickly enough, the building took a bit more effort to extinguish.

Raechel took a deep breath and leaned on her walking stick a bit more after, taming and controlling all the flames had taken a lot out of her. "I should practice more, that shouldn't have knocked the wind out of me" She said to Robert who guided her to a bench so she could sit "you did fine" He said, then kissed her forehead and sat next to her till she was ready to go.

Woo GM override.

The beating Jonsey suffered seemed to be literally destroying him. His body had to withstand the elements that none could before him and the group of supers gathered around him was toying with him like a small child. The behemoth that came out of that truck - the ace in the Arab man's sleeve, the wild card... it looked like it was all over. His charred and scarred remains were nearly a pile of cooked meat when his heat didn't quit beating. Instead, it intensified beyond anything he had ever experienced. Breaking through to the last level of Jonsey's mutation, he never imagined he could step past that limit he set to himself many months ago.

The towering hunk of cooked flesh actually got up on his two feet. A strange aura was around him, as if he was emanating a force-field of some kind. His mind was blurry and his thoughts were only occupied with repeating the same one syllable word. Kill. Kill. Kill.

His eyes locked onto the first target he could find in the field. It was a young woman in her early twenties who seemed to clobber him with ease yet could stand immense amounts of punishment. His bulging hands grabbed her firmly and started squeezing her apart. It didn't take long till Jonsey ripped the poor girl's arm off and tossed her aside like a toy. The next thing he saw in a haze of red was the man who made him smell like bacon. He saw him limp away and caught him by the shoulder before he noticed him. By now the screams of Sarah had made the others noticed the revived hulk of walking muscles.

Jonsey squeezed the electrifying man's shoulder as hard as he could, but he didn't think for a second that the long contact between the two could let him finish the job once and for all. His very breathing after sustaining such heavy punishment is a marvel of medicine and science, even bigger than the logic defying master doctor. Jonsey had beaten death himself back to oblivion and return to get his revenge as a walking behemoth of a man. With each step he made the pain searing through his skin, flesh and bones shot up to his brain and stopped. It was all blocked from registering - the only thing he was concerned about was killing those who made him go so low. Him, the right hand of a god. He had to... KILL... KILL...

KILL!

It didn't take long for Jonsey to die, but ever after his brain and heart were completely fried his corpse flinched.

Martin washed his hands, the last few hours he had been performing surgery on a lot of patients. A building had collapsed, and there had been many casualties. Just as he was about to go to his next patient a solider walked through the door. "Sir we have a problem." Martin turned around. "What problem are we talking about?" The soldier responded. "There seems to be fighting in the middle of the city. You have been called to help out help. It seems like the other hospital got blown up."

Martin looked horrified. "Blown up? Never mind we don't have time for this, tell me everything on the way there." Martin didn't take the time to take off his surgical scrubs. He grabbed his pistol and headed down the straits. Outside was an ambulance waiting for him. He entered to find 6 soldiers inside. "I am ready let's go." The driver nodded and started the ambulance. Martin looked at a soldier. "So what happened exactly?" The soldier said "Well it all started a few hours ago..."

By the time that Martin reached his destination everything had been explained to him. "You 6 with me cover me. " The captain of the soldiers nodded. Martin stepped on to the road. He radio made contact with John "John, I just arrived on near the battle field. Where do you need my help? " Martin looked around, whatever had happened here it was horrible.

Gavin pulled Ottis away from the dying behemoth...or at least that's what Gavin thought was happening, as the withering corpse continued to wither with no sign of stopping anytime soon. He put a quick negation field around Ottis, letting the injured man levitate a few inches of the ground. It should last for a few minutes. He then dashed through the remaining fires, zipping above and around them. He grabbed Sarah and then her arm, a few feet away. As far as he knew Doctor Martin couldn't repair limbs, but hopefully with something to work with he could.

Gavin laid her next to Ottis and Rico laid Charles next to her. Gavin checked his radio, the doc was on his way. Gavin tore the sleeve off Sarah's dismembored arm and tried to slow the bleeding from her stump. He wasn't sure what to do about Ottis or Charles.

"Jesus fucking Christ..." Gavin muttered before crossing his legs and levitating with the three injured supers. Rico stood by, hoping there wasn't anything more to deal with.

"So, how was your first real super-powered brawl?" Gavin shakily asked, trying to pass the time.

"So, how was your first real super-powered brawl?"

"I feel sick."

Rico did feel dizzy, actually, and fairly nauseous. He shoved it out of his mind, trying to focus on what little first-aid he knew.

It wasn't of any use, he didn't know what to do about crushed bones and flesh. He shakily sat down, trying not to look at Sarah's dismembered limbs.

"Come on, Doc... come faster..."
