As the villains approach the fallen heroes Red Micron and Red Olympian a bright white explosion is seen from the far side of the warehouse where the fight began. A human-sized ball of white energy flies to where Red Olympian lays and explodes outward again pushing all the villains back.
I warned you. DO NOT TOUCH MY WIFE!
Gavin looked at the collected group of evildoer's with a determination that couldn't be brought down.
The newly reactivated Dr. Technix stepped forward and his right arm began morphing into a gun, but before he could do anything with it twin beams of light shot out of Gavin's eyes destroying not only the gun but the whole arm and blasting the robot back 30 feet once again deactivating him.
anyone else want to try me?
Colossal Woman runs at Gavin and starts growing as tall as she can inside the warehouse and kicks the hero with all of her incredible might. Gavin gets sent soaring through 4 walls before one finally stops him. As she looks on at her work with glee, smug that there's one less hero to worry about a blast of energy comes rocketing forth and slams her square in the temple knocking her out.
Gavin shoots back into the fight, his fists cracking with energy, he lays out both Aryan Thunder and Fear Keeper with one punch each and as he directs himself towards Dr. Iniquitous he is stopped by a sudden burst of flame.
You didn't forget about me did you? I'm pretty sure that fancy shield of yours can stop bullets and punches, but I'm betting I can still cook you alive in there even without my flames being able to touch you.
As the temperature increases dramatically the remaining villains begin to pile on trying to bring him down. When a sudden streak of black and yellow runs past taking Firegirl away then returning to a stop right in front of Killer Sting.
What! you should be dead by now! that toxin has a 100% mortality rate.
And I believe you too, but zen healing techniques and me saving my buddy Battle Medic over there wasn't what you were counting on was it? You gave a speeder 15 minutes, you might as well have given me an eternity to find a way to stop it.
Mach-6 quickly spun his arms creating a vortex that blew Killer Sting away and began trying to help out the other fallen heroes so they could rally and finish this fight.
Mistress! the battle seems to be turning to their favor, I highly recommend leaving. We have already accomplished what we set out to do.
Very well. Orogeny! it's time to leave. Doc, if you'd be so kind...
As Doctor Iniquitous began teleporting her team out Mistress Menace turned to look at the enraged Gavin and spoke softly, just loud enough to be heard...
I told your wife she'd have to make a choice. And she did.
The villains vanished in the blink of an eye. Gavin floats down to his wife who was beginning to regain consciousness thanks to Battle Medic's healing ability. She looked so sad, as if her physical pain was completely dwarfed by some emotional turmoil.
...Gavin, Mary,... I'm sorry. I'm able to heal her injuries but where once I could sense two lives. There's only one now..
Gavin's body began to pulse with pure power, so much so that everyone could see the being known as Belaxia sharing his anger as they are about to bust forth and hunt down the monsters responsible, Red Olympian... Mary Reynolds, raised her hand towards Gavin and shook her head. She didn't need vengeance, at least not right now. What she needed was her husband. He floated back down to her, grabbed her hand.
And together both Gavin and Mary weep.
The finale to the story, as well as the whole of the art for this story was done by the super-talented
She has been just wonderful while I've been trying to piece together my story. Lots of love needs to be shown to this talented woman.
