Stark Tower, Roof
Faith aimed the spear at the yet another wounded dragon-fish that Thor injured with his lightning barrage. She took the shot. The dragon-fish took the hit where Thor's lightning damaged it. She then saw Thor fly off his perch and come crashing down beside the Hulk on top of another dragon-fish, "Where the fuck is Thor going?" she didn't expect an answer and was surprised when the spear answered.
*THE PRINCE RAN OUT OF ENERGY! HE WILL NEED TIME TO RECHARGE!*
"How would you know?" she shot at another target; the shot took out the the last wounded creature. "How do I slow them down now?"
*A DOUBLE ENERGY CHARGE THROUGH THE EYES INTO THE BRAIN! WAIT UNTIL THEY EMERGE FROM THE PORTAL TO TAKE THE SHOT! YOU APPEAR COMPETENT ENOUGH FOR THAT!"
"Are you freaking insulting me?" Faith was seriously considering ditching the nosy phallic symbol down the nearest sewer.
The spear was clearly not happy either. *YOU ARE CLEARLY INSANE! OBVIOUS CORRECTIVE MEASURES WILL BE TAKEN! SCANNING...SECONDARY WIELDER IN RANGE OF COSMIC ETHERNET! UPGRADING WIELDERS TO MOST BASIC STANDARDS! PROCESSING...*
"What the hell are you up to? You gleaming pain in the ass!"
*CANNOT EDUCATE THE PRIMARY WIELDER AT THIS TIME! LEAVE A MESSAGE!*
Faith felt a jolt of energy go through her, from the top of her head to the bottom of her tippy toes. She started to swear at the top of her lungs, but she directed her anger at the enemy, for now.
Clint took note of what Bobbi's co-worker was saying and filed it for later use. 'That's good stuff. Hope I can remember even half of that shit.'
Bruce jumped from one target to another, crushing each as he made his way through the invaders to the top of the building. He saw a dragon-fish carrier that slipped through the net of destruction that was Thor and the lovely Faith.
He jumped off the roof; behind he left cracks in the re-enforced concrete. He landed on top of the enemy's carrier i. e.: the dragon-fish, and proceeded to pound the crap out of the troops. 'This is exhilarating,' he thought as he smashed the aliens left and right.
Thor landed on his dragon-fish and proceeded to take charge of mopping up, as if someone put him in charge. He tore a piece of armor and plunged it into the neck area. An alien trooper shot him and he turned to deal with him. Thor pounded the improvised dagger deep into the wound, mortally injuring the creature. The two heroes rode the dragon-fish down to the ground as it went through its last remaining seconds of life.
Thor was still giving him the odd piece of advice on how best to deal with the enemy. 'Didn't he say that his people never even heard of the Chitauri?'
He left the smashed landing site and went after more strong positions to smash.
Thor tagged along, but Bruce kept jumping from place to place haphazardly laying waste to whatever came to hand, just from sheer annoyance. The enemy didn't like that and tried to deal with him. They cornered him in an empty theater of some sort and proceeded to pelt him with their energy weapons. They didn't hurt, but they stung, and his body regenerated the minuscule amount of damage as fast as it was dealt.
However it looked like they wanted to put an end to his obstructionist ways and gathered a force to deal with him specifically, and not that prima donna Thor.
'They can fly, I can't. However they are all in a stationary position. What I need is some way to swat them out of the sky, like bugs with a flyswatter. Hmm, maybe a little force and a bit of pressure would do the trick. Damn, they are pesky. Just like a bunch of mosquitoes. Pressure...yeah that might work. Let's see the force needed would have to equal...' while Bruce continued to work out the physics needed in his head the hover fighter squadron continued to pour on enough energy to turn the ground around Bruce's feet plasma red.
'Let's see...the force needed to generate a pressure wave strong enough to take these guys out would need...' Bruce did all the calculations in his head, and when he was sure he had the numbers right. He clapped his hands several times. He was going for overkill. 'Nothing wrong with a little overkill.'
The two matched screams of agony came from above and below. He knew that the one below was Xander. He didn't know how? He just knew.
He looked in the direction of the scream that came from above and saw Faith. He lost it. Someone was hurting his mate.
"NO!" he screamed and jumped towards his mate his rational mind went someplace else and a more savage Hulk took his place. He jumped and hoped his way towards the one who would dare hurt his mate.
When he cleared the skyline he saw Faith on her knees and Loki closing in.
Stark Tower, Plaza
Xander whirled and dodged all the while firing g the never-empty Uzi. 'Gotta make sure the magic monkeys make more of these for the girls. They're worth their weight in diamonds.'
"Speaking of girls..."
"Shut the fuck up Xander. Or my stake will never see sunshine again!" Graham and his boys came running. Cap started with the giving of the orders.
Xander gave the unhappy giant a smart assed grin. "Gotta be me, didn't know you swung that way big guy?"
"My stake doesn't care who the asshole is Xander, if you mouth off in front of my guys...all I'm promising is a lot of wooden pain with splinters. I don't believe in sanding!" he gave Xander an evil grin.
"Graham that sunny disposition of yours is just precious. Never let it be said you have a sense of humor."
"Don't you mean, that I have a sense of humor."
Graham saw an enemy craft orbiting around Xander and trying to take him out. He swung his phase 2 rifle and took out the particularly irritating hover fighter that was making a nuisance of it self.
"Go on..." he waved for Xander to continue, "... Dig your grave a little deeper."
Th two kept needling each other as they kept a steady stream of fire going to give Graham's men the time needed to setup their equipment.
Xander just kept firing in random directions every now and then, but what freaked Graham was that every shot hit something. "Okay enough! How the hell are you doing that?
"Don't know. It started just after we left, but didn't become this developed until after we left the transport. W word I knew how it happened?"
*SECONDARY WIELDED IS PART OF COSMIC ETHERNET. SECONDARY WIELDER IS SATURATING THE AREA AROUND HIM WITH A LOW LEVEL COSMIC FIELD THAT GIVES SECONDARY WIELDER AWARENESS OF EVERYTHING IN THAT FIELD! FIELDS OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY WIELDERS ARE COMPATIBLE AND WILL EXTEND THE AWARENESS OF BOTH UNITS!*
'You mean that is Faith I've been feeling all this time?' Xander had more experience with the weird ass shit than Faith and knew better than to talk out loud where people could take it the wrong way. A lot of them already thought that he was certifiable. No need to give them more evidence for the men in the white coats and straight jackets. He felt another tiny jolt go through his body. He had been ignoring them for a while, but he was starting to get suspicious. 'What are you doing?'
*PRIMARY AND SECONDARY WIELDER NEED TO BE BROUGHT UP TO BASIC STANDARDS TO SAFELY OPERATE THIS UNIT! GENETIC CORRECTIVE MEASURES COMPLETE!*
Xander screamed at the top of his lungs, and so did Faith. It hurt like hell, but then he was used to that, and so was Faith.
"Shit! Cover him!" Graham grabbed Xander and passed him to his team's medic. "If this is another of your lame ass jokes Xan...it's not funny, just like the rest of your material." Xander didn't reply. He just lay moaning under the shield.
"What happened?" Steve and Phil looked concerned, Xander went down for no apparent reason. They hoped it wasn't due to an after effect from that spell that Willow did on the carrier, but Steve had the Red Witch's assurance that they were all fine. Better than fine. He could still remember her exact words. "Everyone pay attention to any more incidents. If someone else goes down the same way I want to know about it right away. Got it?"
"Got it Captain!" Graham saw a large green figure streak overhead.
Steve saw it as well. The Hulk just landed on top of Stark Tower.
"Ooh. What hit me? Did anyone get the number of the runaway rune weapon that just fucked me over..." Xander looked up to the sky and focused on the fight between Faith and Loki. He saw Faith was a little wobbly but getting steady fast. Just like him in fact. 'When this is over spear...' he promised it that there would be reckoning.
