Seeing some of the inmates fall, Ferrous felt some weird pin pricks on his chest, like someone was pinching him. Looking at his chest, Ferrous noticed some small craters and a ricochet marks on his chest. Looking for the source of it, Ferrous saw some guards firing there weapons in to the prisoners without any discretion.
Charging towards the guards, Ferrous yelled at them "Is this the way you guys works now a days? Slamming in to one of the guards, Ferrous tried to grab one of the other guards and throw him against another one.
Several more Guards Flooded the Area followed by their Ringmaster, Ripper, now armed with a Combat Shotgun.
"STOP RIGHT THERE CRIMINAL SCUM, RETURN TO YOUR CELLS AND WE WILL LET YOU LIVE!" He shouted as he fired up into the air.
The guards opened fire and Joey hit the ground, letting the card fly into Never-find-it-again-land. He was lucky to hit the ground before one of the minor inmates, who collapsed in front of him, blood slowly draining out of him, Joey reached over, but the man was too far gone for him to help. So instead, he picked the man up and shuffled along the ground, using the soon to be dead inmate as a shield. He reached a lone guard ahead of the others soon enough and touched one of them, letting his power envelop the man, to Joey's eyes, and soon enough, blood began leaking from every minor vessel in his body, eyes,nose,mouth,ears, effectively taking him out of the fight, if not soon killing him from blood being produced at an accelerated rate and pressure building in his brain about now.
Picking up the dropped gun, Blue-Blood propped the guard up in front of him along with the now dead inmate, creating cover and using the point where their shoulders met to hold the rifle along. Opening fire on the remaining guards and seeing a metallic man charging into them, he was careful to hit the ones that were an immediate threat to him.
Controlling his rate of fire from his year of training with Madeline, but these were quite a bit different, with them being made in this century first of all and the fact that they were a mite heavier than Maddy. He managed to hit three of the guards, only wounding one of them with an arm shot, the other shots simply hitting body armor and doing no serious damage that he could tell.
"Ahhahahahaha,"He laughed maniacally, "this is the way to have a good fucking time. Die little you little shits, DIE!"
The red mist had shown her the way.
Just where she'd wanted to be the confiscation room.
There they were her four friends, resting on the table, they gleamed even though the guards clearly hadn't been treating them right.
But then from behind a desk one of the guards popped up, holding an assault rifle.
"Mam, stand down, you don't have to die but don't think I won't kill you. Now back to your cell."
Great even when they were breaking out the guard was still taking pity on her. Time to teach her a lesson.
The blades on the table animated behind his back. She feels the blood lust build as the blades readied themselves. She couldn't hold it in any longer, they dashed into the guard from behind, everything from the geyser of blood to varying resistance as flesh and bone gave way to steel the guard didn't last long at all, the blades were moving bloody fast.
"Ahhhh." the Blades had contracted stiffly to drive through the guard but now they released driving the corps apart.
The read mist flowed from the body drawn towards Cutter; the blades followed and were soon back where they were supposed to be orbiting her it felt good to have them back.
Zeph grinned. Finally, a use for his equipment. He pressed the button on his other arm, which contained his personal invisibility device.
He tried to find a way to both duck and navigate through all of the panicking prisoners, and the other take-charge supervillains, to get to Carl. He had an active invisibility field ready for him if only he could find him...
Grabbing hold of the guard, Ferrous picked him up and threw him at the group of guards closest to him. Running towards that same ground, one of the guards that recovered shot Ferrous in the chest. Staggering back from the attack, Ferrous grabbed the guard by the throat and told him and the rest "Leave now while you still draw breath, leave and tell those supers they lost and tell that Tresto dude, Ferrous sends his regards"
As the Battle raged, a Man in a Suit of Old Rusty Armour began to attack a guard with a grenade attachment on his Rifle.
Ripper Fired shots at Ferrous and Joey while his forces began to retreat.
As the guards fell back, Joey rushed to follow Cutter, arriving just as she began adding to the red mist around her.
"Huh,seeing that never gets old, you know."
Walking past her, careful to stay out of range of the flying steel he found a box labeled COSTANZANO, JOEY (AKA BLUE-BLOOD). Swiftly going through it, he found exactly what he was searching for, a beautiful blue thompson machine gun, a gun that had been in his family since the Mob had ruled the country, unfortunately he saw that the poor thing wasn't loaded, he'd have to see to that. Also inside the box was his blue silk pinstripe suit, with black silk thread comprising the stripes,a linen shirt, an egyptian cotton undershirt,shoes made of the finest Italian leather, a handkerchief,his black fedora and a large empty briefcase. Everything that comprised of his belongings.
"Here I am, boys, now let's leave this joint
He stuffed his suit and hat into the suitcase, wincing at what he was being forced to do to them. They were very expensive and almost impossible to get wrinkles out of. At the bottom of the box he found exactly what he was looking for, three custom made round magazines for use with Madeline. He loaded his gun, smiled and left the room with his briefcase in hand, tommy gun in the other.
Taking a shotgun blast in to his side left side, Ferrous staggered a bit to the they right. This caused him to break the guard Ferrous was holding his neck. Turning towards Ripper, Ferrous threw the dead guard at him. Shouting at Ripper "If you hadn't hit me like that, then this guard would still have been alive. His death is now on your hands" Before charging Ripper.
Ripper, unfazed, pulled out a baton and charged back at Ferrous.
Despite Ferrous Super-Human Advantage, Ripper was far better trained and he knew it.
He ran up and performed a back-hand style Swing with his Baton
The rest of his men soon realised that this was a losing battle and began to make a run for it.
The suit of armour was overpowered by the Guard and was knocked to the ground.
The guard went to blow it's head off when the suit kicked his knee, breaking it.
While in Pain, the Guard shot out a grenade from his rifle.
The shot soon blew a massive hole in the wall, bursting straight into the Out-side Yard.
Only the Prison wall remained.
After finding the knives, Roachman went through the stores looking for his jacket and hat. While the others held off Ripper and his men, Roachman opened locker after locker by punching their doors off their hinges. Finally, he found them. He put his hat over his head, which was getting very itchy as his antennae developed. Then his brown jacket, which felt lighter than usual. It didn't matter, he just had empty cans and other junk inside them, so he can't have lost much.
Finally, Roachman rolled up his sleeves and charged at Ripper, bearing arms.
Ripper was busy attacking ferrous so he didn't see Roachman until he tackled him though a Railing and slammed him several feet onto the ground floor.
The Sound of bone's Breaking as they hit the ground was drowned out as the rest of the Guards got the Hell out of there as the masses of Inmates ran outside towards the Prison wall.
Well, he couldn't find Carl anywhere. Zeph hoped he was okay. Zeph now rooted around in the storage area, finding his box labeled GORTADO, QUENTIN (A.K.A. ZEPHYCHRONOS). He found his trusty laser pistol, conveniently enough without any ammo, and his bionic arm. Since he was invisible, he decided to change into his traditional rubbery labcoat and boots, since there would be no harm to it. He then equipped his bionic arm and placed his trusty pistol in its holster (note: bionic arm is equipped on his left arm and the pistol would be fired from his right). He was ready to leave this place.
Hearing a blast from another room, he decided to investigate. He saw a commotion of guards and prisoners, but most notably the battle between (Roachman and Ferrous) and Ripper. It seemed like they both had it under control. Time to make his convenient exit.
Zeph began making his way towards the hole when his invisibility shields began to die due to lack of power. He'd be able to recharge them enough to keep his invisibility if only he made it out into the sunlight. He went into a sprint.
Joey ran out of the properties room, gun readied, but the guards were already either dead or running. Seeing another man suddenly appear near the hole in the wall, he followed, figuring that was probably the best way out this hellhole.
He ran out of the hole in the wall, checking the towers, and saw a man begin to aim at Zeph,"Dammit you moron, watch out!," He took aim and fired, sending yet another of Parapen's dumbest to the base of the tower, if the bullets hadn't killed him, that thirty foot fall onto the concrete would.
As several Inmates ran about the Yard trying to Avoid Sniper Fire, a Inmate with a crude Lighting Bolt Scribbled on the back of his Prison Suit created a large cloud above the yard.
Several small bolts of lighting arced from it and began to strike the Snipers before a Massive one began to stike the Wall Several times.
A cry of joy filled and yard as masses of Prisoners cheer the man on as he fought the toll the blasts took on his body.
The back-hand swing hit Ferrous in the head, making his head snap backward. Shaking his head to clear the effect from the blown, Ferrous hold up his arms to deflect more of the attacks from ripper. Seeing a opening, Ferrous threw a punch at Ripper that missed him and hit the railing instead denting it. This attack left Ferrous open for a hit to the side of stomach.
"Oooh, I felt that last one" Ferrous told ripper attacking him again.
Throwing another punch, Ferrous suddenly saw something tackle Ripper and cause him to fall down. With Ripper no longer there, Ferrous tried to make sure he didn't hit the other inmate that had tackled Ripper.
That was mine.
How dare he take it?
Cutter had followed the bloodshed into the yard before seeing one of the guards had taken her sniper rifle how fucking dear he. The lightning bold had hit him hard so he'd fallen from his perch gun in hand.
She was soon standing over him, all thoughts of her safety lost.
"Pop quiz, I can sever the vena cava, aorta, jugular or urethra. Choose carefully."
"What?" He groaned.
"All of the above it is."
He screamed but not for long.
She had it. Picking up her rifle again almost knocked her down but the feeling was worth the disorientation.
She was soon down in a corner back against the wall. She didn't care who died, she just needed one more hit, to get back on the road. She chose her target regardless of which side they were on.
The gun shot shattered the air, her blades quivered before falling to the ground. Her target was jam now; you couldn't even make out gender what with all the bits that were now liquid.
"Oh fuck yes." She licked the gore from her lips, she was in so much pain from the recoil but she didn't care, she even managed to remain conscious this time, it had been too long. She only ever had one bullet on her, after all discipline was important.
A few Snipers stood frozen at the Actions of Cutter, trembling almost.
With this image and the masses of Super-powered Villains, They quickly ran out of their Nest's in a collective "Fuck This".
The lighting Man soon broke out down the Prison Wall and the Inmate's rejoiced as he passed out.
Outside the Prison
Rugal, Red-0 and Inferno saw the damage from the outside.
"Well...that was the fastest break out ever..." he sighed.
Red-0 wasn't pleased with the break-out occurring. "We should have gotten here a bit earlier..." Internally sighing, she continued after a moment. "Doesn't change anything, though. Just a bit more difficult to sell."
"Well if they come this way, surely no of them would need a ride and If they try to highjack us..."
Rugal ended the sentence by cracking his neck.
"They'll wished they'd stayed..."
Zeph noticed the lightning man who had most likely saved all of the inmates when he got outside, his invisibility restored, and realized that no one was stopping to help him. He would be rounded back up and put back into prison, no just reward for a true villain. With his bionic arm and his extended capabilities, Zeph picked the man up and began carrying him out of the prison, through the hole lightning man had made.
Things were looking up.
Joey saw Zeph disappear and then a man began floating in the air, about the same height as the man he had follwed out.
Who the hell is this guy?[/blue]
Seeing the hole in the outer wall, he figured that was the best place to get out of. He ran up beside the floating man, and laid a hand on where his shoulder should have been, but instead felt hair. He quickly moved his hand over and spoke, "You know, you either have to be the stupidest man on earth with access to shitloads of dough, or you've got next to no common sense and still have shitloads of cash. Here, let me help you with that, we've got to get out of here quickly."
He grasped the man's head and made his body begin producing an assload of adrenaline,waking him up instantly and shocking him for a few moments before he allowed the adrenaline to return to slightly above normal, allowing him to stay awake but not kill him from his heartrate being too high.
[color=blue]"Wakey, wakey, Stormboy.We're gettin' you outta here."
A Helicopter with a Minigun soon arrived on scene and began to rain fire on all the escaping Inmates, turning many into swiss cheese.
Stormer was still petty dizzy and couldn't answer as Zeph carried him out of the prison yard.
The red mist was thick now; she knew exactly what she had to do.
She saw the rotor blades, so fine, she needed them.
She launched a blast of mist to the helicopter trying to grab the rotors. While she knew it would cause the crash but that wasn't what she needed. She pulled as hard as she could even only one would be enough.
She could feel the blades come loose just a little more.
The Helicopter Swayed and as a result sprayed Bullets at Cutter and the Building, cutting thought the walls like paper and causing the whole building to start to collapse.
Instinctually the blades leapt to her defence doing enough to block or deflect a few bullets.
Cutter was too focused to move now and it would probably only make her a bigger target.
It took her a while to notice the collapsing building; unfortunately she was still affected by knock back from the rifle which considering how much effort walking was anyway she'd need help.
Of course that was implying she cared about escape, the blades were still attached to the helicopter which was much more important, she was so close to removing them.
The blade was loose (well one of them). She felt its weight and meters in length.
Her stump was tingling as it always did in there sort of situations.
Now time to swing.
She took the best swing she could at the helicopter aiming for the cop-pit
Joey saw the bullets tear through the prison walls with ease,Damn, I've gotta get me some of those.
He continued to help Zeph carry the man, trying to guess where the bullets would land, and reorienting the group. There wasn't much he could do, Maddy probably didn't have a chance against that armor plating. Then he saw Cutter, the one person in the cell block he had any kind of connection to.Dammit, Cutter, what the hell are you trying to do
"Sorry guys but I've gotta go back, get through the hole, and here, take this,"He handed them his briefcase,"You lose that, I'll make sure you die painfully, I'll spread it out over at least three days, probably more.Now get the fuck out of here."
He ran off, heading back towards Cutter and the helicopter, carefully taking aim, as much as he could anyways, and firing. His shots punched through the glass as the helicopter swayed through the air,which caused it to sway even more, killing more than a few guards on the walls still trying to get away, he noticed with glee.
He laughed maniacally once more, until Madeline's clip was emptied,"Goddammit, I really need to find someone to work on you, babe."
The wiser course of action was to keep moving in this situation, and so he pulled out the barrel, and clicked in another one, again he was ready for shooting more guards, he would've preferred if they were heroes, but they worked for him.
The Helicopter crashed into the falling building, creating a massive explosion of metal and concrete, The roof started to cave in around Cutter as large slabs of it fell around her.
One nailed her in the back and its weight prevented her from moving.
"Yes!! Did you see that? I destroyed that bitch."
The blades had been knocked loose they were free now.
Sure there was pain but fuck the pain, pain was temporary a good kill last immortal.
She didn't even care about being pinned.
Anyway getting out was hardly a problem. She was already setting her little blades spinning the four of them actually made a fairly effective saw. If it wasn't for the chaos she'd probably have been trapped.
She'd probably be out soon.
Despite the Saw Blades best efforts, Cutter was competely trapped and it could only get worse from here...
Ripper managed to pick himself up from his massive fall and run out of the sector.
The death high was fading, the massacre was great of course but it wasn't going to sustain her.
She felt the cold return from behind the misty blanket. The plan that had once made such perfect sense to be an afterthought was now revealed to be essentially pointless.
Cutter began to really feel the weight of the thing, began to calculate the lost hours the increased difficulty of even just waking.
She still felt worried for her blades of course didn't want them to get hurt so stopped the plan as soon as she saw its ineffectiveness.
"Hello? Anyone there?"
The worry wasn't hard to notice.
Roachman got up after the explosion to seeing the building falling around him. He got up instantly and ran outside to see the strewn guts of some of the the other prisoners. It looked somewhat like pork chow mein.
Roachman wasn't sure what to do. He heard Cutter's voice over the madness. "Hello? Do you need help? Are you stuck?" he shot his wings out of his back to get a bird's eye view of the wreckage. He was back to his old self, now.
"Yes I am. But I'm fine otherwise. You mind helping me clear this."
She pushed away at it with no effect; the effort only tired her out further but it was that or looks like she needed help.
I figure just a little more force and I'll have it.
Fooling no one.
"Goddammit Cutter, you keep making it hard for me to do anything but save your ass!," Joey yelled as he sprinted across the wreckage that had been the prison,he saw Roach, or was it Ranch?, nevermind, he stood over Cutter, who was trapped under a roof slab,"You stupid bitch, how come you never look around at what you're bringing down?"
He leaned down, grabbed an arm, and began making her blood clot,her bones to re-knit faster, and generally make her better, he also added a burst of adrenaline to help numb the pain and keep her from going too far off, he'd had too many people go unconscious and die on him while he'd been working on them before, a colleague wasn't going to be added to the list just yet.
"Hey, -Boy,-Man,-Dude whatever the hell your name is, help me lift this thing off o' her."
"Alright." replied Roachman before stepping over to the slab openly. After working out the best angle to start lifting from, he decided it was too heavy to carry while flying. Far to heavy. And large.
So he landed and lifted the slab up with minor difficulty, mainly because it was hard dividing the weight over his center of gravity. He threw it down a few feet away using a caber toss-esque technique.
"Your welcome. And it's Roachman." he said just flat-out awesomely, brushing the dust and gravel off his hands.
