“What, you haven't even taken me out to dinner and you're already questioning whether I'm a being that is not human? How rude is that?” Meta questioned back, though he quickly shifted his attention from the Grim Reaper and toward the mob of ravenous civilians charging toward them. Before he could say anything else, some of the other heroes immediately leaped into action and started to disable the civilians. Futile, since there were hundreds if not thousands of them. The heroes needed to get to higher ground like a roof, whether the civilians would not be able to use overwhelming tactics and where the group would be able to talk without having to punch a baby every three seconds. Before Meta could say this however, some bright hero decided to smash the ground. This caused Meta to lose his balance and face-plant the ground, which was shortly followed swearing as he got back up.

“Don't do stuff like that!” Meta shouted to whoever had created the shock wave. “It makes some us, I don't want to name names, a bit dizzy. May not be entirely adjusted to the concept of walking. Just saying. Also, I vote we get on a roof or something. Just saying.”

“What, you haven't even taken me out to dinner and you're already questioning whether I'm a being that is not human? How rude is that?” Meta's response caused a chuckle from Vengeance as he imagined the prospects of two super heroes eating dinner in a restaurant.

Vengeance also lost his footing as Candlelights shock wave hit the ground sending him tumbling to the pavement onto his back with several civilians ready to attack.

"Ummphh!"

This can't be good! He thought to himself before getting dog piled by the civilians that were still standing.

Although he didn't possess the physical strength of many of the experienced super heroes, he had other gifts using his link with the spiritual world was able to summon his scythe which had became dislodged from his hands when he fell.

The scythe illuminated in a red ethereal glow and flew into the pile of bodies and straight into his black gloved hand.

I hope this works... he thought as focused his spiritual energy onto his scythe he managed to send out a crimson shockwave emanating from the scythe and sending the people flying through the air like ragdolls.

Luckily the thick layers of his costume protected him during the assault although his ragged cape looked a bit more ragged after that.

"That was not fun!" He said as he pushed one of the civilians back from where he was.

"-Also, I vote we get on a roof or something. Just saying.” The silver skinned being said.

"Yeah, I vote we pull back from this position it's far too open here."

Candlelight couldn't help but grin, and was glad that his bandana his his part of his face. It was obvious to him that the being who was calling him out was talking about himself. Candlelight also had to agree with the hero's suggestion.

"Yeah, getting up somewhere is a good idea. Oh, and by the way, I was being practical."

"Sir we're under attack!"

Zeron didn't have to look far to see that. He and a small group of henchmen had gone out to obeserve the heroes and possibly kill a few of them when suddenly the civillians had gone beserk.

Now...stuck at the top of a two story building Zeron and his men were holding their own. They had the only path to the top of the building covered and Zeron was paying no attention to the civilians. He was watching Shade through the scope of a sniper rifle.

Hold still...

Shade looked up in confusion when she heard the sound of gunfire and saw a massive armored figure targeting her with a rifle.

Zeron...

Shade began to move out of the way just as Zeron took his shot. Shade heard a sharp crack echo through the air and then felt a sharp surge of pain go through her leg just as a few of the civilians turned their attention to her.

“Practical?!” Meta replied as he smashed in the face of a particularly ugly looking human with the butt of his rifle. Or at least what he considered to be ugly. Meta spent a lot of time on human-dominated worlds, though he hadn't quite developed a full idea about beauty in their terms. “Practical is buying two sets of batteries in case you lose one of them or they don't work or when you find something that needs two sets. Practical is NOT trying to rock the boat. Don't rock the boat. It's bad and I get seasick easily.”

Amidst the chaos as the heroes swatted the horde of flies that were the civilians, Meta suddenly heard gunshots. Well, not heard, but perceived them in his own little way of hearing. He turned to look and saw a group of men on a rooftop, apparently defending themselves from the human horde without a regard to casualties. Meta might have opened fire as well, though he had no proof that these civilians weren't being mind controlled and opening fire on them would not be a good first impression. He noted that one of them was not concerned with the horde however, and was sighting in on the group. It could have been to just see who was in the group, but that was quickly nullified when he heard the crack of a sniper rifle.

The sound of flesh being punctured brought Meta's attention to the woman who had just been saved from a dying jet. He rushed over to help her immediately, taking the liberty of knocking a few heads together on the way. Meta always loved getting into brawls with humans, though he always had to pull his punches or he'd crack their skulls open. As soon as he reached the woman, he took less than a second to examine the wound. This was partially because it was a gunshot wound from a sniper rifle and there was not much to examine. If it was a high-powered rifle like a 50 cal, then it would have ripped her leg in half. In this case, the leg was merely punctured in the calf and would heal nicely over time, if given the proper attention. The brown cloth wrapping around his face and neck would do fine in bandaging the wound for the moment. He took it off, revealing his silvery skin of a face with enigmatic runes engraved in every spot, with no real facial features such as eyes or a mouth. The leg was bandaged quickly, and the civilians were shrugged off easily. The sniper was still out there though and Meta was in the mood to play.

“Sorry to do this lady, but I don't think you're fit to party.” Meta apologized as he scoped her up and made a break for one of the now-empty buildings, hoping to be able to reach the rooftop before the sniper could reload and hone in on his target again.

Titan was too busy to notice the armored man with the sniper rifle on the roof. Once he heard the shot however he turned to see Shade on the ground and watched as some guy tended to her wound and got her to safety. He turned his head over to where the shot came from and saw the armored man.

"Hold on, I'll be right back," he said over to the group.

He activated his jet boots and flew over to the building to where the sniper and the other armed men were. He powered down his boots and looked over at the large figure.

"And I'm guessing you're Zeron," he said to the armored man. "As much as I hate to say it I can tell you're not responsible for what's going on here. I'm not one for asking for help but right now we could use it." he said trying to reason with him.

He didn't even seem to notice what was happening down low while he tried talking to Zeron. Like how he failed to notice the larger group of civilians forming down low or how he failed to notice they were no longer attacking but beginning to form a circle. Or how the police of the town were beginning to pop up armed with their pistols, assault rifles, and shotguns. Or how the police began to take aim at the group of heroes down low, at Meta and Shade, and at Titan and Zeron. Suddenly all the heroes heard a voice inside their heads including Zeron.

Don't worry, soon the fun will begin said the creepy voice.

"And I'm guessing you're Zeron. As much as I hate to say it I can tell you're not responsible for what's going on here. I'm not one for asking for help but right now we could use it."

Zeron simply stared at the hero as he considered the proposed alliance between himself and the heroes.

"No." He said in a booming voice and he brought back his rifle and prepared to crack it over the head of the hero who had the nerve to ask him for help.

Don't worry, soon the fun will begin

Zeron looked up in suprise at the sound of the voice that echoed through his head even as he rethought the idea of working with the heroes.

Is it possible that whatever is controlling the civilians is telepathic? If so, that makes it a very dangerous opponet. Perhaps a temperary alliance could prove benificial.

He looked down at the armed men who were taking aim at the assembled heroes down below.

"Henchmen! To me!" He roared as he turned back toward the hero. "On second thought...yes. Whatever is controlling these people is powerful if it can control an entire city."

Erebus downbelow with the other heroes fought to defend themselves from the rampaging zombie civilians. It was hard not to kill them, because Erebus had no idea what was going on inside of their heads.

He performed a series of katas he carefully executed, mixing his own Psionic Powers to deliver blows to the raging civilians. In his mind, he began wondering; he lived here in Gallion, a metropolis housing millions of people. It was even safe to clasify Erebus as a fellow resident; while a bounty hunter and a vigilante within the darkness of night. How could he be uneffected by whatever happened to these people?

Soon, the fighting had stopped. The civilians had suddenly calmed, and formed a circle around the uneffected vigilantes. He huffed and puffed, while staring at the surrounding civilians. What were they doing?

Soon a patrol of armed men came into the scene, aiming there weapons at the heroes. He suddenly heard a voice inside his head. A cold, sinister voice.

Erebus unsheathed his katana. The blade sung as it was open in the crisp air. "I think we now have a reason to defend ourselves through our own brutal methods." he grunted.

"On second thought...yes. Whatever is controlling these people is powerful if it can control an entire city."

Titan just nodded his head as a response to Zeron. He would have made some type of remark had he not been focused on the armed civilians.

"I think we now have a reason to defend ourselves through our own brutal methods." he grunted.


Titan looked over at Erebus and his now unsheathed katana.

"Hold up, if we kill them that makes us just like them. No, whoever's doing this isn't controlling us for a reason...I think this thing is testing us."

He down at the group below and suddenly had a thought. He leaped off the building and turned on his jet boots. He began firing lasers out of his hands to force the civilians to shoot at him. His armor would be durable enough to withstand the bullet onslaught...at least he hoped.

"Candlelight," he called down to him. "I need you to blind these civilians and I need everyone else to disarm them while they're distracted."

"Candlelight," he called down to him. "I need you to blind these civilians and I need everyone else to disarm them while they're distracted."

"Disarm them? They are trying to kill us, and you want me to help disarm them!?" Candlelight was having trouble seeing the logic or the practicality in Titan's methods, to put it mildly.

"Whatever. I'll listen to you just this once." Candlelight then absorbed some light and released it in a nonviolent blast, briefly causing his vision to turn white.

"Alright, sic 'em boys!"

Meta paid no attention to the newly arrived men with guns, mainly because he was already racing up the set of stairs in the building he had chosen to enter. It was a small, brown building that sort of stood out next to some skyscrapers and probably was close to being sold and reduced to rubble. Either that, or it was a historic landmark, not that Meta cared them that much. Just a big waste of space in his personal opinion, though that really didn't matter when civilians were acting like animals and people were firing bullets. That's why he picked up the woman and ran fast. He did not receive the message from the entity that had contacted the others and nor was he aware of the sudden alliance made with the sniper. By the time he did reach the roof, one of the heroes was already creating a blinding flash that would have blinded Meta were he human.

Meta was not human, so he was not blinded and did not hear the evil entity in his head upon reaching the roof. He was confused as he approached the edge of the roof and set the woman down against the the small wall jutting from the edge. One of the heroes was hovering near the sniper instead of fighting, and now a police force armed to the teeth had shown up. Meta was more than glad to draw his weapon and aim it at them, considering that being armed made them viable targets to shoot. No one was fighting though, and that was enough to give Meta the pause in initiating a slaughter.

Erebus didnt like following orders, but this was an exception. These policemen didnt know better afterall, because it became clear they were being controlled; along with the rest of Gallion's citizens.

As soon as Candlelight created a flash bomb to blind the armed police, Erebus used this opportunity. Erebus came up behind a few of them and disarmed them through hand-combat, while knocking them down to the pavement. One of them was firing his weapon aimlesly, inable to see any targets. Erebus managed to deflect the unguided projectiles using his blade, spun around to dodge further rampage and slid his blade across the rifle the man was wielding into two pieces. The man dropped the weapon, and fell on his back.

Erebus proceeded with caution!
