I want to thank the following reviewers...
You guys have kept me going at this pace when I was about to dial it back to about once a week.
There are a lot more reviewers who should be mentioned, and I will do just that in the coming chapters. I wanted to start with these guys, because they wanted it the most. So Thank you each and everyone of you.
Avengers Base Camp.
"They're back! Fliers grab the nons and let's get gone." Tony looked at the assembled Avengers and Asgardians plus Betty, "What are you waiting for? An invite?"
Volstagg nodded, "It would be the polite thing to do."
"Where. The. Fuck. Are. You?" Tony piped in Natasha's voice through the speakers.
"That will do." Grin Hogan told Frandal. He checked his mace while Frandal smiled.
"Yes it will. Come my friends. We have Ice Giants to smite. Er, um..." Volstagg didn't know how to put the next part delicately. After all there was a non combat type female present.
"What troubles you Mighty Volstagg?" Thor asked.
"Shouldn't we do away with the..." he pointed at the unconscious Frost, "You know?"
"Out with it rotund one." Fandral joked.
Tony and Fandral had got on like a house on fire. Hey had the same temperament. "Do away with him since we all will be gone." Volstagg clarified.
"I don't like killing helpless unconscious prisoners." Tony looked at a Hulked out Bruce accusingly.
"It was an accident." Bruce defended his actions.
"You bitch slapped him. How was that an accident?" Tony wanted to know. He really didn't care about the fact that Bruce did it. Just why he did it.
"He was looking at Betty funny."
"Funny, ha ha, or funny, just you wait until we're all alone my pretty?" Tony wiggled his eyebrows at the last part.
"The other one." Bruce growled.
Betty ignored the two clowns. Frost was just asking a question and she was having a hard time coming up with an appropriate answer. Bruce cracked his skull with that bitch slap. 'This'll take hours to heal.' she thought.
'Uh oh! Dial it back Stark! You know S. H. (Savage Hulk) only comes out when you attack or bad mouth his hotties.'
"Okay. I believe you..." Tony lied through his teeth, 'Like hell, but there's no time bring out the beast. Not here, not now...'
"Good." Bruce replied.
"Great. Now let go kick some Ice Giant butt!" he turned to Sif and grabbed her around the waist, " Need a lift?" he asked. He didn't wait for an answer, he jetted out of the cave with JARVIS carrying Fandral and Grim Hogan right behind. Thor carried the fat one and Hulk brought up the rear.
Ice Giant Encampment.
"Clint! Make me a hole." Xander and Natasha covered the retreat. He used his Uzi and she the spear.
The Uzi rounds blew small chunks where ever they hit on an individual target. Gungnir blew away rows of warriors at a time.
"Kids together. Don't waste the shot."
The teens kept discipline and waited until everyone was ready to fire. Clint was proud of them. He and Xander had trained them to the point where they'd make a SHIELD special ops team cry in shame and envy. He knew when they were all ready, "Fire!"
The south wall crumbled under the combined high energy volley. They ran for the breach.
Every member of the party was armed the same, almost. There were exceptions, but most had the same equipment. Swords and daggers, made by Xander. Bows and arrows made by a master, Clint. The 'Gravity Canons courtesy of Jackie. Mithril Armor covered the weak spots; on top the chests, backs, shoulders, elbows, hands. On the bottom; thighs, knees, chin pads and armored boots.
"Phil, Tasha, Jake, Kelly, Tony and Rupert. race ahead and drop grab cover behind the ice rubble. Alex, Jenny, Gram and Joyce keep going for the next ridge and set up the net fallback position. Cover us when we pull back. Jackie, Faith and Dawn, reach for the sky. I don't see anyone up there yet, so keep them pinned with fire from above. GO! GO! GO!"
"He didn't give us any orders." Natasha said as she help position and continued to drop the closest threats, while Xander used the hose called a mini-Uzi to spray a stream of lead to slow the rest down.
"Would you have obeyed?" Xander started to group his shots and do a bit more damage as they continued to stand their ground.
"No, but it would have been nice to have been included."
Xander snorted, "Yeah. I hear you, and all I can say is sell it someplace else sister. This fool ain't buyin'. Say Nat, where's the rest of the team?"
"You have been gone for days. After the fourth Ice Giant unit we had to destroy, we couldn't all stay. With the help of the spear I stayed behind, hidden and invisible. To make sure you had warning of the build up."
"Any idea why they kept coming?" Xander reached into the jacket covering his armor and lobbed a grenade.
"Napalm?" Natasha's raised eyebrow spoke volumes.
"Yep. I even have a case of nitrogen, if we run into any fire elemental types."
"How long have you been away for? Are those really your children? where's Loki and his wife?" she asked as she continued to fire energy bolts, " Let's start our own withdrawal. The children have reached the first barricade.
"We've been gone a long time. At least a couple of decades if not more. Yes they are all ours. Loki and Hilda are part of the wolf pack. You can never tell those guys to do anything. Suggest yes, maybe even lead by example, but never tell. By the way, Loki thinks he's a friend of ours. Some how he arrived at the place we were at without his memories, and in the twenty one plus years we've known him he has yet to show any sign of getting it back. So mums the word and make sure to pass that on..." He walked backwards in step with the Black Widow. The muzzle of the machine pistol was red hot from all the bullets he was using, but then what choice did he have.
