Now What



Now What? (#TiD-73) unknown


SCENE SET »  Young Avengers Headquarters

The church was quiet and had been quiet for some time now since the she had been set ablaze. Since then it had been bought and sold several, each time the intended purpose for the church fell to the might of neighborhood protests regarding the possible repurposing of the church; The Church had been purchased (and then sold eventually) by Chase Manhattan Bank, Whole Foods, and even a Costco if you can believe it. And also several other banks, it almost seemed like banks had a woodie for the church. The original paritioners still held onto their hopes that the church would one day be restored back to it's former glory and once again welcome them, but for now it remained a largely burnt out husk. Although there were some rooms in the back on the second story that had been largely untouched and that was where Billy's magics brought them.
the green alien. It looked a great deal like Teddy's alternate form.

And as with the warehouse, the church too had had a small glamour cast on it, one which caused people to not really take notice of what happened inside the church, or really even to notice the church. Rather people just hurried on by it now, while inside the Young Avengers considered options.


Wiccan » The old, frail walls of the church turned the echo's of their arrival back on the Young Avengers as they materialized with the church, their arrival clearing away the shadows unlike any illumination within the church ever had before. Billy had brought them all, Speed, Mimic, Chimaera, the Purple Man, and even a guest, Samuel Alexander, a member of the Nova Corps. Possibly the only member, but still a member.

As the light faded, Billy took a head count to make sure that everyone who was suppose to be with them was with them. He tried not to make this obvious that he was doing so believing that the others might not trust him to continue doing so if they thought he might accidentally forget one of them, or worse, loose them all together. It was enough that Billy had this concern, it was one he didnt' want to share with the others for obvious reasons.

As he counted, his smile widened and continued to widen as it seemed he had indeed managed to carry everyone with him to the church, including the Purple Man who was now bound and gaged thanks to Tommy (Speed).

And then Billy's smile dropped slightly as he looked past Tommy and Calvin to see another person standing behind them. he looked to be around their ages, but he wasn't one of them.

OOPS!

Mimic » Calvin had said the words,"Forget Billy, Teddy, Tommy and I were here," the words activated the virus and a cascade of thoughts vanished in the short term memory of the crowd around him. Calvin had heard Billy's instructions and thought it a good idea not good to have them remember anything of what went on in the last few minutes. He had not seen the blur of black and gold join them in the portal.

"Who is that?" Calvin asked pointing to Nova. He was wearing a gold helmet and a black and blue costume. He also wasn't a mutant or had any powers that Calvin would sense. Which made his floating and golden corona of energy around his body even more suspicious to the power duplicator.

Calvin was still new to his abilities and had not discovered that he couldn't duplicate abilities that were technological in nature. He still retained the Purple man's power and it made his eyes purple in color. He had been worried about it working but it seemed that with the Purple Man unconscious his ability was unchallenged.

Chimaera » Teddy wasn't exactly used to Billy's transportation spell, but this wasn't his first time either. Teddy recovered from that pretty well. What was new, what caused him a moment's hesitation, was that kiss. He was smiling, nearly splitting his green face in half. And he was thankful for that green face in that it kept him from blushing. When he heard people starting to react, Teddy turned and looked.

He didn't know the guy he saw. He looked vaguely familiar, but that didn't necessarily mean much. Teddy was new at this school, so there were a lot of people who didn't exactly look like life-long friends. He couldn't stop himself; he stepped between Billy and the potential threat. He really needed to talk to Billy about this. He trusted Billy as a powerful force, and he didn't want it to look like he didn't. Still, there was that kiss.

"Yeah, dude, who the hell are you?" he mirrored Calvin's question. He instantly felt shitty when he realized he hadn't gotten the chance he'd hoped for to talk to Calvin, but that couldn't be helped at the moment. "And what the hell are you doing here?" He hoped they wouldn't have to start fighting again.

Wiccan » Given that for the most part, the four of them, Billy, Calvin, Teddy, and Tommy had all been facing one another in a sort of oddly shaped circle with Sam, Billy was completely unaware of Nova's Presence. Sam had joined the circle from behind (Billy) when the Billy had warped the general space around them. Billy was looking at the floor, at the Purple Man who was bound and gagged thanks to Speed when the others had started speaking of someone else.

Billy looked up, but as he turned to look hehind him, he found himself standing behind a wall of muscle for lack of a better words. Calvin and Teddy, two very tall, strong, strapping lads stood between Billy and Nova. Billy first tried to stand on the tips of his toes, placing a hand on Teddy and Calvin's shoulders to steady himself as he did so, but he wasn't tall enough to see over the pair; Billy then squatted, he was short enough that when squatting he could look between their legs (nice legs) to see the blue and gold hued southwestern avenger.

Billy pulled out his phone and immediately snapped a quick picture of Nova and then used the image to do a social media search to see if he could identify who exactly this was before them. Freind? Foe? Cosplayer? Spandex enthusist? He was hovering, that was neat!

A moment's searching turned some results, someone had tagged him as 'Bosanova' and another as 'Boss Nova'. Billy tilted his head slightly, assuming that there was some typo's going on, he said, loud enough for most to hear, "Tommy, I think that thats that Nova dude I showed you the pictures of from my Pinterest board. How cool is this... Is he in our home room too?"

Speed » Tommy would usually fall to the ground after Billy's teleporting but he had began to adjust to the feeling, getting a little more used to it each time. He briefly looked the church walls over & sighed, it was quite serene here but he wasn't sure it was a secure enough place if they was going to take this hero stuff seriously.

He rose an eyebrow, stern in manner. He walked past the said wall of muscle & stood head on to stare both Teddy & Calvin down; What was he thinking, sure he was fast but one punch from either of those two & Tommy would be out for the count. He had already met Sam/Nova previously, in fact they had raced one another a few times & to be honest Tommy had fallen hard for his charm.

Suffice to say he wasn't going to let them lay a single Green finger onto Nova. "This is Sam... Or Nova if you want his codename." He looked to Billy, knowing he preferred they use their 'superhero names' he then turned his attention back to Calvin & Teddy. "He's one of the good guys, so... loosen up a little." It wasn't like Tommy to be protective of others, other than Billy & it certainly wasn't like him to be ready to fight for someone other than himself. Nova was an exemption.

Chimaera » "Alright," Teddy raised his hands in surrender. "Sheesh. No need to get all bent over it, man." He reabsorbed his wings back into his body. And he shrank his body a bit as well. By the time he was done, he was only a few inches over six feet, but still more wall than window.

"Nice to meet you, Sam," Teddy offered a large, green hand. "I'm Teddy, or Hulkling...yeah, Billy already pointed out that kinda sucks. I'm still working on a name. Shit," he turned to Billy, "Sorry. I didn't mean to use your name, but I'm not really sure what name you landed on."

He turned to Calvin, another little stab of guilt struck him. "And...I don't think you ever told me a codename." He started trying to figure out what he was supposed to say. Awkward had never been his strong suit. And it was even more awkward since stuff was going down without him really having a chance to talk to Calvin first. He groaned inside his own brain while he suddenly found the floor the most fascinating thing in the room to stare at.

He snapped out of it to look at Sam again. "So...welcome to the band?"

Wiccan » Billy had read more then enough comic books to know what was suppose to happen right now, plus he was also slightly fuel by a mania to build a team, the formation of The Fantastically Excellent Uncannily Young Avengering Champions - AkA The Amazing Protecting Defenders of Brooklyn Heights and other Burroughs, or FEUYACAKATAPDoBHB for short. Slippling through the wall of muscle, something which if Billy were to be honest with himself he rather liked doing, but Billy had more pressing matters on his mind and so he stepped up to diffuse the current possible situation. No one needs a speedster beating the shit out of them, and Tommy excelled at that.

"It's cool, it's cool," said Billy as he looked at his twin, who had pumped his chest out like a strutting peacock. Billy furrowed his brow slightly as he looked at Tommy, then his eyes jutted over to Sam, then back and forth between the two several times before making an 'Ohhhhhh' sort of face; Billy and Tommy were very good at reading one another.

Turning to Sam, Billy extended a hand in friendship to the human rocket. "Greetings, Nova was it? I think I've read about you on a super-hero blog or two. Your a lot younger then I thought you'd be, which is cool." He said with a smile. Gesturing to Tommy, and then Calvin, and finally Hulking, Billy continued on. "You've obviously met our resident speedster, Speed. His big guy over here is Duplex the Enigma, "Billy turned and gave Calvin a wink, at the moment he was an enigma, so it seemed like a good name, better then 'Hey you'. "And lastly we have Hulkling, who is... uhm.. our Hulk. Just like the Avengers, the The Fantastically Excellent Uncanny Young Avengering Champions - AkA The Amazing Protecting Defenders of Brooklyn Heights or FEUYACAKATAPDoBHB for short as their own Hulk." Billy smiled, hoping if he said the team name enough times it might stick.

Turning back to look at Nova, Billy added "Oh, and I'm Presto."

Chimaera » Teddy whipped his head around to look at Billy. "What?! No you're not. That's...terrible. Presto is like those shitty appliances on infomercials. You're not a countertop pizza oven. Pesto, maybe. That's at least tasty," he grinned at Billy as he said that.

"Oh, and we're not calling ourselves 'Fuck that Bob,' either. You know that's what it sounds like, right? You've got skills, B, but naming things isn't one of them." He turned to Sam. "Don't worry. We haven't decided a name yet, and that one?" He just shook his head as he reached out to put his hand on the back of Billy's neck and squeeze gently, meaning to reassure him that he was just teasing him.

He turned to look over his shoulder at the guy they'd caught. "We really ought to circle back around to that name thing, but we need to figure out what to do with the Lavender Limpdick before he comes to. I don't know exactly what he does or how he did it, but it's something in the air. It made me sneeze. I'll try and keep a nose on him...or whatever. But my vote's for Avengers, or maybe Fantastic Four. Reed Richards is a genius, right? He'd probably know how to stop this guy's pheromones or cooties or whatever."
