Post by Punk Prince of New York June 12th 2024, 12:48 am

The horn was blown.

The supernatural population across the city could feel the call, a reverberation that rattled their very bones. Shook loose the long honed self control that had been honmed, an attempt to live alongside humanity. Despite that something else heeded the call, an ancient and hungering thing that long since existed in the shadows. It felt emboldened by the call, the excuse and strength that came with it. The people were not ready for what answered the call, waves washing against the shores in massive swells.

While the Lumarian king made his proclamation, something else moved.

Emerging from the sewers below came a tide, a swelling flood of vermin. Rotting things, riddled with open sores that wept black ichour. Things that should have been dead, yet they spilled outwards with a mad vigor. Targeting any living flesh that was within reach, biting and clawing with the kind of madness that was thought relegated to only the bleakest annals of history. Dogs, cats, birds, squirrels or anything they could bite soon fell to the same madness immediately.

Men and women who were unlucky to be found within the vermin tide were ripped to shreds, their screams rising to the heavens in an unholy chorus. Not all were killed, some bitten yet they had not fallen to the madness that the wildlife had fallen to. With the sky blackened by the trumpets call, the only thing people could hope to do was run and pray.

Ethan watched it all from The Heart. Felt that roiling, cloying corruption flow through his veins like oil. It was enough to make him want to vomit honestly.

This can’t be. The spirit within muttered, a kind of despair that he couldn’t deny.

”What the fuck is going on? He had already risen from the comfy couch he usually sat on. Any camera, any screen across thew city was sending him little glimpses of chaos going on.

I thought we’d have more time. That he would wait a little longer...but this is the worst case scenario.

”What is?”

The city could be destroyed if we don’t do something.

He moved through a door in the lounge and appeared elsewhere, smelling the subtle scent of lurid and sweet decay that the spirit within allowed him to smell. ”Nothing new here. He was somewhere in Brooklyn now, seeing the dark vermin tide sweep across the street below. It didn’t even look like rats up here, stanbding now beyond an apartments glass door leading onto a balcony so high up.

What he did hear was the screaming and the sound of gunshots. Smoke from fires rose in the distance. It looked like the world was ending.

If this goes through...I might end. This could be the very death of New York, Such words held a kind of finality that made his stomach sink.  Ethan gritted his teeth, drawing upon what power he had. The call hit her but she felt nothing, he felt no real compulsion either.

”Just means we have to stop this, right? He coould feel the eyes of someone, beyond the thing and transparent glass pane he appeared through looking at him with wide eyes. They weren’t really his concern as he opened the door and disappeared without a trace.

Next he appeared through the door of a corner cafe. A few people running away from the rat tide. Spilling down the streets like water, so he  drew upon his own power. He couldn’t kill all of them, he wasn’t sure if they were just standard rats now. With eyes alight with neon red, and cheeks spattered with strands of power like paint he  swung his arm as the neon red flew over the span of the street behind many fleeing people.  A few squeaks went up as the front of the wave began to conflagrate, yet that was at best slowing them down.

These things were generally just insane. Crawling over the burnt corpses of their comrades until they flooded over the burning paint as if it were nothing. Pain was nothing, like they were zombies of some kind.  He was worried things would go horribly because of that. That was until the hiock, sticky strands of webbing spread from seemingly nowhere and caught he rats that came like a tide toward them. Even still it gave the people precious few seconds to run, looking for any kind of fortified bunker to hide away in.

He remembered some billionaire big wig coming in and building those massive bunkers across the city in case of danger just like this. Guess those tax dollars were going somewhere, weren’t they?

”Really? I don’t think rat killers gonna work on these things,” He took a few steps back, grinding his teeth. ”This might be something more than just rats though.” He looked back into the door he had stepped through. They couldn’t  fight this, not even when

Are you planning on running away now?

”This is too much for us to deal with.” They were chewing through the webbing, a hungry tide that cared not for the strength of mortal or metahuman. ”Follow me.” He snapped, Slipping through the door which lead to a passageway that lead out onto a rooftop.  Even still looking down he could see the chaos that was spreading, his stopgap nothing more than a mild annoyance.

”The rats aren’t the real issue. Something’s causing them to go crazy, He hoped Huntsman had followed, looking back to him. ”Know anyone who can help with this?

Amanda awoke in a startle. Something was happening. She could feel it like nothing before. Rolling out of the bed and falling to the ground, she rolled to get up, to her hands and knees. Something needed her. No. Wanted her. She screamed and every electrical device in her hotel room spun or zapped or sparked as her mouth and eyes began to glow with a neon yellow. Something she didn't understand, something hidden deep within her was being called forth, beckoned. Then, just as fast as it happened, it settled. Amanda was panting on the ground, her body covered in sweat, and a mild wave of exhaustion swept over her.

"ORCHID, what's going on?" She said panting.
After a momentary hum, the AI answered in a male sounding voice. "An attack of some kind by the docks. Metahuman in nature. Large waves are coming into New York... working... I've received an alert from I-4. Events all over the globe are occurring. Denver, Nevada, London.-" as the AI spoke Amanda willed herself to stand, her strength slowly returning. She rushed to suit up. "Someone has emerged from the ocean, identified as Dagon."

"Fuck." She said. "Alert everyone. I want comms with Iha and Jehoel as soon as possible. Tell Team One to get the civilians off the streets and into shelters. Who else is out there?" She said pulling her goggles over her face. But as soon as she asked two screens appeared with both Iha and Jehoel in separate locations.

"I've dropped androids off at central park. They are heading east and throughout the city. Give them time, they will get people to safety." Iha said as he worked on some form of controls in front of him.
"The governor is aware of what's going on. All schools and large businesses have activated their Emergency Action Plans." Jehoel said absently.
"Understood... I took one nap. And-"
"We'll see you out there." Jehoel interrupted and his communication ended.
"You OK? You look... tired." Iha asked.
"I'm fine. We'll talk about it later." Amanda said as she opened the door to the top of the roof and ended her call with a flick of her wrist.

The scene that unfolded before her was catastrophic. Though her clock read closer to noon the sky was darkened as if it was midnight. She swore she could hear howling in the distance, and sirens and screams echoed up the buildings as crowds ran for cover. Large waves were coming from the docks beginning to flood the city. As soon as she got to the roof she sounded the emergency alarms to the hotel she was in, then to the adjacent buildings, hoping everyone will get to cover as soon as possible.

"Amanda, as of now there are several active heroes in New York." The AI said.
"Who is the closest?"
"Huntsman is close by. Sending directions to you HUD."
She dived off the top of the building. "Jehoel, I'm sending you my location. Meet up ASAP." Her AI hummed as it sent the needed information.

The wind rushed past her as she dived story after story towards the busy streets of the city. Then, with a rush upwards, and a jerking motion her cape caught the wind and took her to another rooftop. Two men were standing there as she landed, looking off at the chaos. She recognized one as Huntsman.

"Huntsman, SITREP." She barked. There was no time for pleasantries. She needed to know what was happening and how she could help. She nodded to the young man standing next to him as she walked over next to the two. As they spoke Jehoel flew in from behind her on wings of light.

"Such a mess." He said. "Contact me after decisions have been made." He said, looking at Amanda. "I'll Cover the Androids. Maybe they can last a bit longer with a super at their back."
"Hang back till we have a-" Amanda started, but before she could finish the angel dove off the rooftop. She sighed in frustration. Lighting jumped between her fingers.

The young hero followed Ethan up onto the rooftop, just in time to see the rats chew through his webbing. “Man, those guys have some strong teeth, those webbings are as strong as steel!” He took a second to survey the street from above, his heart sinking as the full extent of this situation was dawning on him. “We’re not gonna be enough...” He looked over to Ethan as he asked about others. “Well, there is this school I just joined...”

As he was about to explain Daybreak to Ethan, Shock-Heart appeared.  

”Huntsman, SITREP.”

Huntsman immediately straightened up, seeing that they weren’t alone. “Right, the docks are flooded, but it looks like Speedrun got everyone out in time, and Frontline is currently dealing with Dagon...” He nodded to the Rats. “Then there’s the rats, swarm goes out as far as I can see, and well beyond that...” He looked out to the distance, where gunshots continued to ring out. “Judging from the commotion, the entirety of Brooklyn is infested.”  

As Jehoel landed, and then quickly took off, Huntsman shook his head. “Whatever this is, it’s somehow been drawn out by that horn.”  

“The Blight...” A figure stepped out of the shadows beside the group. “That’s what the files called it, some kind of supernatural infestation, known to cause aggression in all those who are infected with it...” Warden looked over the edge of the building. “Couple of Government Occult specialist came across a similar situation awhile back, but nothing on this grand of a scale...” He looked back to Shock-Heart. “The information they gathered from their studies was taken, and stashed away in analogue files, which Circuit can’t hack.”  

“It gets worse...” Jager appeared next, stepping up beside Warden. “Just got a call from the General, if the swarm isn’t contained or dispersed, the Government is discussing alternative solutions, and apparently, firebombing was brought up.”  

“Damnit...!” Warden snarled, rubbing the chin of his mask. “There’s gotta be something or someone we are overlooking here.”  

“Uhh, I mean, isn’t there someone in the school who deals with supernatural stuff??” Huntsman raised a hand nervously, as if he was in class.  

The two vigilantes looked over at him, then to each other, before Warden looked over to Shock-Heart. “Where’s Iha??”

I think I know her, The spirit chimed up in his head, sounding almost chipper about that fact. He didn’t bother questioning that fact, because he just assumed she knew a lot that he just did not know. She always told him that knowledge would come with time.

Ethan still considered the woman skeptically, eyes narrowed in a way that suggested he was still on guard from everyone, save for perhaps the web slinging hero. Not that he was exactly friends with the guy either, he just knew a little about him. ”This lady a friend of yours?” He questioned, ignoring the voice in his head.  She barked something at the young man with him, all of it sounding like a bunch of nothing to him.

What the fuck was going on here? Another person just swooped in like they owned the place and flew off once he said his piece. It was almost enough to make his head split.

Of course that wasn’t all.

Someone else came, some kind of tall fucker speaking all formal and shit. Speaking about The Blight, though he didn’t seem to know much about it. I’m surprised they know that name. Usually its The Conclave and its warriors that try to fight things like that. He didn’t want to hear about how impressed she was right now.

If it has anything to do with the government I doubt its going to be good. He thought to himself,  frowning as if imagining what measures they might jump to. Sure enough, the tall man mentioned something about fire bombing things.  That was enough to make his stomach sink. What kind of damage could that cause? He could feel the spirit in him and her displeasure was palpable.

So is this his plan? Damn him straight to all the hells! A scream loud enough to feel like a knife jabbed into his brain rattled around in his head and Ethan winced.  We have to help him. If he doesn’t kill me, these humans will do the job just fine,

His eyes scanned over them, considering their worth before he exhaled deeply.  ”Fire bombing the city isn’t going to do anything. These rats are just a symptom. The worst you’ll be doing is fucking the city up and helping whatever s causing this, Not that he was sure any higher ups would care about that.  ”Blight this bad should have some kinda...center.  A patient zero like in a zombie movie,” he was plucking this mostly from what the spirit was willing to give him.

If there was one thing she knew, it was about other spirits. If this was truly The Blight, and a spirit that meant it had managed to get a vessel and that meant they were all in trouble. He knew  vessels were able to focus and amplify a spirits influence over the world, which meant an attack on this scale could begin to happen. Even still this all screamed though out plan. Which meant that bastard was way ahead of them in this regard.

A screech echoed out above him, as he realized something else. The sky now blotted out with darkness was filled with thousands upon thousands of different kinds of birds. Also that many were beginning to swoop down upon them and anyone else in their sight. ”Everyone close your eyes or look down.” With that he raised his hands, eyes glowing a brilliant yellow as a light of the same color filled the sky. Birds veering off with a screech as they plummeted below and slammed into the roof around them.  He was sure a good portion of them weren’t dead. Blighted animals tended not o die from something as simple as smacking against he pavement, as if whatever messed with them also made them tougher.

”I think we might need to find some cover ourselves,” He noted, looking around to those around him. How good would they be in a fight against a city wide invasion like this? Not even counting what he felt from the docks, where the waves were roiling and a cold presence had set foot on the city.

This was going to be a fucking awful day.

--

Rowan felt he discordant cry that echoed throughout the city. Millions of voices, screeching in a kind of agony only he really appreciated.  The kind of clawing sound that worked at he back of his head, and threatened a painful headache. Nestled in the boughs of an ancient tree that had managed to survive the intense modernization efforts of the city he watched the tides of rats sweep over the streets.

Absolutely saddening.

To see these creatures, pushed under the streets of the city reduced to nothing more than a faceless tide of vermin. Squealing, gnashing fangs that sought to rip apart any flesh they touched.  How many humans would have been bitten by now? Would infection harm them in the same way as the others or was this an unknown catastrophe just waiting to happen.

Dressed in his cloak of patchwork animal hides and feathers, he hid within the shadows of this tree as if debating if he should act. It only took a minute for him to decide, and so he descended from the branches of this ancient tree with bow in hand.  The core of this blight would be somewhere around here. Only with its destruction would he be able to do anything.

”To think I’m helping these people,” He muttered to himself, stepping back into the tree and seemingly melding into it.

Frontline. Well, maybe he can stand a chance. Amanda nodded at the whole thing. He could at least give them time get people to safety. It was a good thing Speedrun was here, saving all of those people. Amanda tried not show how relieved she was that people were saved. So many innocents. This is why people are so against the Metahuman world. They always seem to bring about huge amounts of destruction. A plague on the world. Her head shook at the thought of the government Firebombing the city.

The horn. That's what must have caused that little episode when she woke up. She pushed the mystery of it away as Huntsman continued to speak, and was interrupted by Warden, whom she must have overlooked when she landed.

"Bombing?" She exclaimed and instantly had her AI send Jehoel a message to watch out for incoming aircraft, and to engage if necessary. She'll have to deal with that little "miscommunication" later. Her hand went up to her forehead as she sighed. "No doubt blaming it on us somehow." She let slip quietly.

The only person any good at magic she knew wasn't present. "Iha. I need you here. What's your ETA?"

A screen popped up with the Android bouncing up and down in a chair, working controls in front of him. "I'm 20 minutes out. These rats have done something crazy with the traffic." He said. And as soon as the communication ended Ethan called out for them all to close their eyes. Amanda brought her arm over her face as light beamed. She hadn't noticed the birds coming in. As some fell to the ground dead, others still bombed on their position, beaks and talons out. Amanda spun around, pulling her SWORD. Chopping the ones close to her in two before they struck. When it looked as if the flock had drifted away from their present location Amanda had ORCHID pull the nearby satellites over the city, or highjack the ones that were already there. The thermal images of the city didn't show anything useful.

"Good work Huntsman, Warden. Jager, nice to see you. It's good to meet you." She nodded to Ethan. "And you're right. We need to get to cover. But without a clear target at the moment we need focus on what we can do. Help those that need it. Team one, we are going back to the street and getting the people to safety. Stick together. Watch each others back. If you get overwhelmed, call out." Amanda said, as if giving orders to a fire team. "When we get a more clear direction we will regroup and plan accordingly, understood?"

If there where no objections, Shock-heart would dive off the building. Her cape taking her safely to the ground below and black lighting clearing the ground of any present vermin. People were still running about. "Team One, Clear the street!" She'd shout, taking a position behind a small crowd. Lighting flashing from her hands, skittering about the ground and destroying anything it touched.

Huntsman turned away from Ethan, closing his eyes, while Warden and Jager simply closed their eyes, and turned their heads slightly to the side.  

Once the light cleared, Warden looked over to Shock-Heart, who was giving out orders, being the leader of the program. “Alright...” He looked to Ethan. “You, you seem to be able to handle the numbers game, if you think you can handle it, I’d like you on point with me, Huntsman, you go with Shock-Heart and web up as many as you can, slow them down enough to make a clearing...” He looked to Jager. “You know what to do.”  

Without a word, Jager drew out an arrow with a rather large head, knocking it as she aimed down at the street below, firing the arrow.  

Suddenly, the street erupted into a small explosion, followed by the smell of burnt fur, and the screeches of dying rats.  

Warden looked to Ethan. “Follow me, you’re gonna love this.” He then moved over to the rooftop access door, moving inside and down the stairs to the buildings garage.  

Sitting inside the garage, it’s all-terrain wheels splattered with blood, was an armored vehicle.  

“I hope you don’t get car sick...” Warden stated as he climbed into the driver side. When he turned the ignition, the vehicle roared to life, rumbling as the engine growled, giving the vehicle the impression of beast, ready to charge. “Once we get out there, I want you to stand out the top hatch there, and start clearing as many as you can.” He explained, shifting the vehicle into drive.

Suddenly, they took off, charging through the metal garage door, and out onto the streets. The beast of a vehicle managed to do pretty well as it dozed through the swarm of rats, the suspension and thick tires making the ride amazingly smooth.  

“Alright, you’re up.” Warden signaled to the top hatch, before pressing a button on the radio.  

Music suddenly filled the vehicle, as the song Before I Forget by Slipknot started to play out the surround sound speakers build into the vehicle.  

Back on top of the roof, Huntsman leapt off the edge, firing a line of web onto the building, swinging himself towards Shock-Heart, firing large nets of webbing, cascading them over the swarms, holding them in place long enough to slow them down.  

Jager, moving across the rooftops, knocked three arrows at once, firing them into the swarm from above.  

Suddenly, the swarm was covered in a foam-like substance, which hardened around them, holding them in place, unable to move or bite at it.  

“Please tell me you got more of those??” Huntsman stated into the Comms he was provided.  

“Not enough to stop them all, but we just need to clear a path to the emergency shelter...” Jager replied. “Between you, me, and your friend, we should be able to do that just fine.”

”Hey, boss, just ran a facial scan of Huntsman little friend, names Ethan Karovsky, and he’s got quite a rap sheet here...” Images appeard on Wardens HUD, showing a picture of the very person sitting next to him, followed by a rather decent police record. ”Vandalism, drug trafficking, assault, suspected for a couple deaths, though no charges were filed due to lack of evidence, kids got quite the history.”

Warden kept his eyes on the road, but couldn’t help but glance over at the young man, a sense of familiarity washing over him.

We know what we need to do. The spirit spoke up,  almost like she were trying to urge him to one direction of action. He knew nothing about Huntsman and his friends, aside from the fact they were some kind of superheroes with costumes and everything. Even when he dressed up, it was more like a mildly thuggish kind of look. Nothing like he’d see in some of the comics he occasionally drudged up from the stream of things passing through the infinite corridors.

Ethan's eyes turned to the tall man, saying something about following him to who knows where. I know The only mental response he gave to the spirit, following after Warden by a few steps. He didn’t want to walk into whatever kind of danger might come with being close to a person like this.

He followed down flights of stairs until they were in a garage, the sensation of walking where a door was meant to take him almost feeling novel. ”I’m not some kind of pussy,” He replied, the notion of him getting carsick sounded ridiculous. He drove around in fast cars, not like he didn’t know what it felt like to go fast. It was a car that roared like a beast, the engine coming to life causing his bone to rumble with their reverb.

It could be fun. Sure, you’re saving my existence in the process but no harm in having a little fun too, He only rolled his eyes in response, stepping into the vehicle without saying anything. The man likely had some kind of idea, even if he had not a single clue beyond maybe pushing through the swarms of rats like little bugs being crushed.

It happened just like that, with them taking off and hurtling through the multitude of rats that swarmed the streets. Their squeals echoed out much like the crunch of their flesh that was mushed under the tires and body of the car.

Soon as his head popped up through the top, he was channeling two colors. Neon red and blue, colored up with those opposing colors that he was sure fit perfectly for this occasion.  Arcing sprays of red that burnt rat flesh and shattered shards of brilliant blue ice that ripped them to pieces with efficacy that was a sight to behold. The spirit within him powered the energy that emerged from him, feeling almost limitless now that he drew upon it.

He had a feeling this wouldn’t slow them down but he wasn’t looking just to kill rats.

I will try to sense for any hot spots around us. Keep these things under control until then, you don’t know what else can happen.

While they roved through the streets two things happened.

Some of the corpses of the rats, spattered with their blood turned blighted black began to write as their remains became more like liquid. Jerking and writhing, as they cleaved to one another and up rose horrific monstrosities of amalgamated rat flesh. What they lost with the small and fast bodies of the rats they gained in sheer size. They climbed the sheer walls of buildings, picking out any real signs of oppositions. If the smaller cousins were unable to bite through superhuman flesh, they were not lacking in such strength.

The other thing was seemingly something more mundane. A shot aimed at the heroes still within sight. Shots from high powered rifles ringing out through the air, aimed for  Shockheart, Jager and even Huntsman. Even shots at the angel if such a thing were possible.

Shock-heart looked at the information Warden sent her quickly. The kid had a rap sheet, nothing too crazy it looked like, but she'd keep the information in the back of her mind. "Thanks." She said as the lighting streamed from her finger tips.

The rats were resilient. Even the Ex power was having a hard time reducing them to ash as it skittered across their fury bodies, making them last another second or two than a normal one would have. It was some kind of power that brought these things to the surface.

The last group of civilians were saved. A large vault like door closeted them into an archaic looking bunker at the back of an old store. Iha pulled up in a van just outside with androids blasting away, trying to keep the tide back before some of Team One could jump in.

As Shock-Heart began to climb in, her arm outstretched to grab ahold of the vehicle, a shot rang out. Her right side erupted into a bloody explosion as pain moved through her like a tsunami.

Everything went black for a moment. Her life flashing before her. Then another wave of pain, something in her chest. Her eyes and mind were back. Blood pooling on the ground as the vehicle was speeding through the city. Her hands shaking like a madman. She dug deep. She could hardly think, but she knew she could fix this, if she could only... Ex power flashed all around her. Hitting the people in the back and the vehicle, ans most importantly, focused on her wounds. The hole in her right side was closed. As if nothing had happened.

After the Ex power had shocked everything the vehicle became faster, more efficient at everything it was capable of. The Computers inside were faster than before. Iha himself would even feel more empowered. All of the electronics could put out double their capability.

Sweat ran down her face. Her skin was more pale. The whole ordeal took a lot out of her.

"Iha. I need you to cast a spell." She said, leaning on the back of door to the van.

"Way ahead of you." He smiled back. Turning a screen to show a bird flying above them.

As Jager moved across the rooftops, the sound of gunshots echoed out from the distance, followed by a round hitting her left leg the moment she jumped from one roof to the other. “Shit...” She managed to make it across, but fell flat on the ground, a sharp white-hot stinging sensation she knew very well coming from her leg. “I’ve been hit.”  

And Huntsman swung through the air, his body tensed, instincts shifting into overdrive, as the shots rang out. He pulled on his line mid-swing, pulling himself up and over just as the bullet passed underneath him. “Oh crap, we got people shooting at us now!!”  

“Fuck...” Warden snarled. “Kid, get inside and cover the hatch, we got snipers...” He slammed on the gas as he followed the van. “Shock Hearts been hit, we are going full mobile.”  

Huntsman swung back to Jager, finding she had crawled behind a vent for cover. “Guys, Jager is pretty messed up, I should take her to the hospital.”  

“Screw that...” Jager stated, looking over the wound. “I hope you don’t mind blood...” She pulled out one of her throwing knives, lightly stabbing it into the wound. “Don’t pass out on me, Imma need you here in a second.”

Huntsman stood frozen in place as he watched Jager mutilate herself more. “Uh, are you sure you should be, oh god...” He felt his body shudder as a small squirt of blood shot out of the wound and onto her face. “You, you got something right, here, let me uhhh...” Unable to think straight, Huntsman just reached over, wiping the specs of blood off her face. “There, better.”  

Jager chuckled as she glanced over to the nervous wreck that was the young hero. “What a gentleman...” She winked to him, as she pulled the knife from the wound, reaching her fingers in next. “Okay, when I pull the bullet out, I want you to fill the hole with your webbing.”  

“I mean, did not expect a girl to ask me that...” Huntsman cocked his head, as the realization of what he just said finally clicked in his head. “That wasn’t supposed to be said outloud.”  

Jager chuckled lightly. “You’re going through shock, it’s understandable...” She growled as she ripped her fingers from the wound, holding onto a bullet. “Okay, now!”  

Huntsman reached over, pressing the hole on his wrist where his webbing came from against the wound, flexing the muscle that allowed him to shoot the substance. He fired just enough to fill the hole, then around the top to seal it in. “Okay, so when you’re ready to remove it, use baking soda and water, it will break it down and make it less sticky.”  

“My hero...” Jager placed a hand on Huntsman cheek, leaning in for a quick kiss on the other cheek. “Now...” She quickly moved back to her feet, as if there wasn’t a clear bullet hole in her leg. “The shots came from around due north of us, judging by the round, it was high powered rifles, which means the targets are some distance away...” She looked back to Huntsman. “We need to clear some distance and get to those shooters, before they manage to kill one of our friends.”  

Huntsmans stood there for a second, rubbing his cheek as he just stared blankly before realizing it was his turn to talk. “Right, uh, yeah, yeah, I can, uh, yeah, I can try and distract them, while you, uh, you sneak around?”

Jager placed a hand on his shoulder, a proud expression on her face. “Think you can avoid getting shot?”

“Oh please...” The smirk showed even through the mask as Huntsman gave a playful salute. “I’m untouchable...” He then turned and dashed for the edge of the building, leaping off as he fired a line for one of the buildings. “Untouchable, what the hell was I thinking?”
