Thanks again to everyone. Your reviews have inspired me to go beyond the movie.
"JARVIS! JACOSTA! Emergency rescue operations now!" Tony flew straight at the few storm giants left standing. He fired left and right with his repulsor beams and fired a spread of missiles to cover the rest.
"What about Dr. Ross?" JACOSTA asked her creator.
"Have her help where she can. Whoa!" with a mighty roar, the Hulk burst from beneath the mountain side that fell on the combatants minutes earlier.
He was quickly followed by Thor from another end and the Black Widow from yet another direction. The spear in her hand was glowing brightly. An energy shield surrounded her and her team. Baskets and Bobbi started firing high explosive arrows as soon as their field of fire was clear.
While all this action was taking place another interested party watched from the shadows. One of their members has earlier cast a confusion enchantment on the entire party. The only ones effected were the androids.
JACOSTA responded by increasing power to her energy field and JARVIS by using the biggest gun at his disposal.
The infiltrator continued to make her way to the combat zone, hidden behind terrain, camouflage and illusions.
She waited for her chance for the warriors to be fully engaged before she reached down and snatched her target. Loki the disgraced Asgardian.
With her prize in hand the eight foot tall joutun made her way back to her party. Behind her the Avengers were quickly dispatching the disorganized and demoralized storm giants.
From his throne Odin saw the illusion using giantess make her getaway with his stepson. He could nothing about it personally.
Four warriors were racing across the plains to one o the hidden gateways that led to Joutenhiem.
Gungnir was unreachable as well. His efforts were directed to protecting his Primary WIELDER while she was in battle.
Odin knew that he would be able to re-establish contact with the Rune Weapon as soon as the battle was over. By then he knew it would be too late. Already the ice giants were racing back into the blizzard raging over the icy fields.
"Just a little longer Dawnie." Xander urged Dawn to hold her shield for one more minute. The others should have reached them by now.
"There's too much weight Xander. I can barely hold it up." the strain in her voice told Xander exactly how long she'd last, before he could say anything a giant green fist burst threw and moved the part of the mountain that had trapped them underneath it like insects.
With a roar Hulk cleared the rest of the earth to reach his mate and the bright green light that brought him peace.
"What took you?" Faith asked her friendly green giant.
"Stupid puny giants blocked path! Hulk smash puny giants!" he declared in triumph.
"That's my guy. Gimme a hand will you?" she put her hand out for the Hulk to grab. Hulk did just that. Xander grabbed the exhausted Dawn before she fainted. He activated the tattoo on his back and poured enough energy to fly out, with Dawn cradled in his arms like a baby.
"Keep the green light safe!" the Hulk ordered the puny Alpha. He would smash him, but he knew that his mate and the green light would be upset. Deep down he knew they would nag the Banner out of him. He shuddered. For him it was a fate to be avoided at all costs.
With the party gathered above ground once more, Tony directed JACOSTA to retrieve the nano cubes.
"JARVIS! What happened?"
"I have reviewed my records of the battle and have isolated the time segment where some one inserted a false set of memories and visual, audio and other sensory data."
"You got hacked?" Tony's surprise showed plainly on his face and in his voice.
"I got hacked." JARVIS agreed.
"Me too, and at the same time as JARVIS. In my case, I increased power to the energy field." JACOSTA added.
"But, but you guys never get hacked. You're the ones who do he hacking. Show me!" he received the time stamped events from both AI and ignored the rest of the party.
The androids retried the nano cubes and reset the habitat.
When Xander emerged from the one of them, behind him he left an exhausted Dawn sleeping on one of the inflatable air mattresses. "Where's Loki?" he asked.
Everyone looked around and noticed that Thor's brother was missing.
"He was abducted." Natasha blurted.
"How do you know that Nat?" Xander asked.
She held out the spear, "He says that big poppa bear was watching and an ice demon took him while he was unconscious."
"Looks like your dad's expecting you big guy. And you lost your brother. Sucks to be you. Don't worry. Come guys, we have a trouble maker to find, before the demons who took him gut him as soon as he wakes up." Xander explained.
"How do you figure they'd gut him?" asked Faith.
"Simple. As soon as he opens his mouth the first thing he's gonna do is start making demands. If you were an ice demon what would you do?"
"Gut the git." Faith replied.
"Natch. Come let get him before he wakes up."
"What about the storm?" Clint pointed out.
"Ya. What about the storm? Storm God?" Xander asked Thor.
