Making Acquaintances



Making Acquaintances (#TiD-82) unknown


SCENE SET »  Tommy, or 'Speed' as Billy kept reminding him to call himself had sent out a message on the dark web. The message contained something along the lines of "My name is Speed. I'm an Inhuman & aspiring vigilante. I'm looking to make Contacts... Acquaintances... Allies. Meet me on the 28th of November at 12am in Brooklyn park."

With that being sent out, Tommy awaited for the upcoming meeting with anticipation. He was sure it was a bad idea, anyone could have seen that message, including criminals, villains or even S.H.I.E.L.D. He was even more sure Billy wouldn't have approved, that's why he hadn't told him. Tommy was usually the cautious, more cynical one of the two but he figured sometimes taking risks brings rewards. 'Fortune favours the brave.' as it goes.

So here he was, in Brooklyn park it was close to midnight & he was wearing a thick hoodie, jogging bottoms & sneakers. The place was empty for the most part, apart from one or two homeless people minding their own business. The worse things that could happen would either be A; Nobody answers his call OR B; Someone with dark intentions turns up. But if that happened, he'd just take off, fast. He decided to take a seat at one of the swings, rocking back & forth on it gently while he waited, the wind was picking up with a cold harsh bitterness to it.


Speed » So here he was, sitting on a swing at midnight in Brooklyn park. It was cold, brisk & windy with a bit of drizzle here & there. Tommy sighed in a frustrated, impatient manner wondering if anyone was going to turn up. & despite his Speed & the strengths that came with it, he was quite skittish & nervous in the dark; It was only natural to him, after all bad things happened at nightfall. But he was here now, so their was no going back. Besides the Avengers like Captain America wouldn't let something like the dark scare him, so why should Tommy?

Iron lad » It had been a few days since they last talked but Iron Lad had missed Tommy more than he could explain so when he heard Tommy make an unexpected plea to meet up with other Supers out in the dark web he was both elated and then scared as he had not been the only person to hear his plea. He quickly eliminated the fat basement dwellers and cyber geeks and narrowed on three people that would want Tommy harm or worse.

He had been hiding out in his fake parents home trying to lay low and not piss off the rest of the super powered people he had gathered together and allow SHIELD to do the heavy lifting. SHIELD had been his idea as he had been pretending to be Peggy Carters best friend and driver for a long time. He hated that damn mustache and the wife he had to marry and pretend to love.

He activated his armor and he cloaked himself as he flew out of his house. He flew towards Speed hoping to reach him before the others. He could probably deal with both but not all three of them. He zoomed crossed the landscape of Brooklyn to his future boyfriends location. Unfortunately for the Speedster the first person to respond to his WORLD WIDE WEB alert is a person who love hunting down prey, Kraven the hunter.

The Russian games master enjoys the ultimate hunt and he had never hunted an Inhuman before but he had hunted down Spiderman and Luke Cage so he felt emboldened into hunting one this night. He arrived via motorcycle and then approached using his decade long training as a hunter. He was able to come up behind a leopard as his skills in being quiet were uncanny. It would have been Tommys last breathing had it not been for the 2nd person to arrive and startle Tommy. He was a tall man about 511 with broad shoulders and a smirk on his face.

Hey, Kraven let us play a little with him. No need to slit his throat so early in the game, Eddie Brock was a former photojournalist who was fired for making up photographs and passing them off to the press as real. He was exposed by another photographer before bonding with the alien Symbiotic. He had listened in on the dark web for making a good ransom or clues on who Spiderman was but he didnt mind murdering a few wannabees in the process.
The last person to arrive felt it better to let things pan out and waited in the shadows. The shadows are where was at his best so he bides his time. He waited his white hands gripping the rooftop waiting what unfolded.

Speed » He hadn't heard anyone creeping up on him from behind, so when the person who approached from the side appeared to be speaking to someone other than Tommy, about the procedure of killing Tommy; He immediately got up onto his feet & turned to see the one who had stalked upon him.

Here he was, in the middle of the night, alone & seemingly he had attracted a few murderous individuals. It couldn't be a coincidence that they were here & happened to hone in on him, maybe that message he had broadcast wasn't such a good idea after all. But he did have the advantage of speed, & with speed came power. So if he was going to be attacked, he'd go down fighting. "I think I must have skipped past the part of my message where it said 'Murderers Welcome'." Tommy said in a dry sarcastic tone, fists clenching to his sides.

Iron lad » kraven had skills but he was no mutant and he couldn't match Speed's abilities so when his surprise attack was spoiled by that loud mouth Venom he missed his chance to hit Speed. Venom laughed as he didn't care for Kraven at all. The hunter had attempted to hunt him several times and failed but that only made them adversaries as for the third person that hid in the shadows he had decided to continue to observe that fight not wanting to take a side just yet.

Iron Lad arrived to see Venom slick up the floor in front of Tommy and catch him off guard as it clung to his feet throwing him off balance.

Iron Lad shot three strands of webbing just enough to allow Speed to break free and get out of the way of Kraven's spear. Iron lad sacrificed his invisibility to make sure Tommy was unhurt and the two villains noticed him now in the battle.

"Oh, it's Iron Man but shorter," Venom said slashed at Iron Lad's armor leaving four long claw marks. The internal computers said minimal damage but he had best keep his force fields up to avoid further damage.

"So you normally advertised on the dark web for suicide meetings?" Iron Lad joked with Tommy. The person in the shadows smiled as he noticed that fighting was now a bit more evenly matched. He aimed his bow at Kraven. He shot at the man and clipped him on the leg. He knew Kraven had been hunting supers and was on SHIELD's radar for a while and as long as he was still in Fury and Coulson's good graces he decided to even out the odds.

Speed » Venom was definitely the more menacing looking one of the two criminals, he was like a Spider-man gone wrong. Very wrong. His feet had been caught up in the sticky webbed substance that had been laid to render him unable to move. Luckily for him Iron Lad had also seen his message, or so he assumed... Maybe Iron Lad knew this day was coming as he was from the future. Either way Tommy was grateful.

Before he could respond to Iron Lad's comment, an arrow shot at one of the villains from the shadows & it was a dead on hit. Tommy took the opportunity to weave his way out from the middle of Venom & Kraven, at a speed not visible to the naked eye he showed back up just by the thick bushes where he was now closer to both Iron Lad & the mysterious person in the shadows who appeared to be there to help them. "I didn't intend on drawing out two crazed criminals, I was hoping to make connections with others like me." He shrugged, his eyes still locked on the two hunters with an expression of wariness.

Mass » Jackson had intended to be on time, he always intended to be punctual but the odds never worked out in his favor. Which was why he was always late. It wasn't his fault this time though, his Father had actually been home and stayed up working on some experiment a lot later than probably he even expected. It wasn't until his Mother had got up and ushered the man to bed, that Jack was finally able to sneak out. He probably could have snuck out with his Father still awake, being how invested the man was in his work, if it weren't for the single fact that on the rare ocassion he was home he always checked on each of his kids before heading in to bed. It was like clock work though, and it had happened just as so.

So here he was, unknown to everyone as he had floated in on his near invisible cloud like form, with how dark it was it was easy to not be seen. Standing at the top of the slide, he just grined as he shook his head. Of course the dark web would bring out the freaks. Hell he was here, he was just a different type of freak. Coming to a solid like form, his skateboard hit the slide and the hoodied Mass rode down on it. Hitting the sand, he pulled a boomerang like contraption out from behind him.

"Heads up! " He said tossing it at the closest baddie. It would look easey enough to catch, though Mass being his name, he had something up his sleeve and the bad guy would come to find it a lot havier than it appeared, so much so that upon catching or smashing it was a few hundred tons.
