PostSubject: The Shovel Men (open)   Fri Jun 09, 2017 11:04 pm

They started small, harmless enough. A gang that spent their days asleep and their nights roving the streets. They stole things, at first, finding safety in anonymity behind their masks. They all dressed alike, so no witness could identify who the thief was.

But soon their numbers grew. They started threatening people, demanding money in exchange for "protection."

But tonight, something far worse was brewing. An unnatural fog covered the neighborhoods closest to the cemetery. Men with shovels came breaking into people's homes, dragging them out of bed, and leading them by force to the cemetery.

One such victim was a seven year old boy named Riley. He was shaking and crying. His head hurt from all the noise and confusion.

"Where are we going?" Riley asked.

One of the shovel men looked him in the eyes. "We're going to bury you alive!"

Riley felt cold. "No. Please!"

The Shovel man laughed and pushed the boy again, towards where hundreds of open graves waited.

Riley wondered where the Teen Titans were. They were supposed to stop bad guys, right?

Rico was on her way back to the apartment from a well-taken opportunity for a purchase. She had been looking for a book, and when she tried some internet searches for the book she wanted, she was very pleased. She made her way across town to secure the deal as quickly as possible, as opposed to waiting until the following day.

But as a consequence, she hadn't noticed how late it had gotten. On her way back with the book, she thought she heard voices on the wind. Not the normal suburban static, more like men working. But it felt...odd. Curious, she made her way towards where the sound had come from.

She soon found herself in the Jump City Cemetery, seeing some masked men wearing similar outfits. She wanted to investigate upfront, but there were too many. She pulled a mask from her purse, placing the book inside in lieu of it, and put it on. It was simple black face mask, like a ninja, but it would do.

Her guns were holstered at her thighs, and she kept them there for now. She started moving carefully and quietly from tombstone to tombstone, staying behind them as she observed. She saw holes, and plenty of people. She put her phone on silent, and debated calling the police. Maybe they could get locals involved. But the hostages...

The Shovel Men were bringing hundreds of people into the cemetery, and those people were only becoming more and more afraid.

"What do you want?" A man asked. "I'll pay you whatever you want."

One of the goons hit him with a shovel, knocking him down before pulling him back to his feet and pushing him along.

A woman screamed in terror and tried to run away. A bulky man grabbed her and threw her over one shoulder, carrying her as her feet kicked in the air.

The man, the woman, and Riley had their hands tied. They were then dropped into shallow graves, only about 2 feet deep. Apparently, the Shovel Men had needed to save some time in order to dig so many graves. Still, 2 feet of dirt would be enough to smother the innocent victims to death.

"Please," Riley shouted. "Please, someone save me!"

A shovel full of dirt was dropped on Riley as two gang members started to bury him. Suddenly, a shovel hit one of the goons in the head. The other spun around to see that another person in the gang attire was responsible. A second later, the goon saw the same shovel high-five their face.

The interloper pulled off his mask and the baggy costume, revealing himself to be Mr. Pacific! His sunglasses were currently replaced with a paintball mask, but the rest of his costume was intact, right down to his flowery Hawaiian shirt. Tossing his shovel aside, he pulled out two nun-chucks.

Despite his dramatic entrance, Pacific wasn't exactly sure how he was going to get out of this situation alive. There were hundreds of gang members here, in various degrees of strength. He felt confident that he could beat any one of them in a fight, but there was power in numbers, and they had a lot of numbers.

The Shovel Men who were burying the other two victims nearby were his first opponents. Four against one. And one of those four was big. They came running at him. Pacific managed to hit one in the face before they could even attack. The goon dropped their shovel and grasped their face, screaming.

The big guy was next. He slashed at Pacific with the blade of his shovel. Pacific jumped to the side before bringing both nunchucks swinging around at the side of the big guy's head. The goon blocked with his arm and tried to crush the vigilante. Pacific stayed close to him, narrowly avoiding the follow up attack. One of the smaller enemies tried swinging at Pacific, but missed and hit the big guy in the back. The big guy grunted, but didn't seem too injured. Pacific hit the smaller goon in the neck, before back kicking the fourth one in the crotch. He was not ashamed to fight dirty.

For the moment, it was just the big guy left. He did seem really strong, though. He swung his shovel again, hitting Pacific hard in the arm. Pacific was able to move with the momentum, avoiding most of the damage. Still, that stung.

More goons were gathering around. Pacific really hoped he would get some help soon.

Mariya was having an awful night. An awful day, really. It all started the night before, when she found herself in a drinking contest with a group of bald headed and stocky bikers. True Russian blood ran through the Kryptonian's veins, and she had certainly won the night... only, after that much vodka she found the next day to be an awful experience.
The blaring headache made her hole up inside her dark motel room all day, not even going out for food. The thought of food made her queasy most of the day.

She really had to cut back on school nights. Anyway, after a day of hiding from food and the sun the girl found herself starving and weak. A side effect of being Kryptonian? A hangover day of avoiding fresh air and sunlight took a toll on her. Her strength was lower than usual, and everything just felt so... sore.

So, when she'd gone out that night to find herself something greasy and solid to put in her stomach and all she could hear were the terrified screams from the cemetery direction Mariya planned on walking right passed it... until she saw the ninja lurking with legs that looked amazing despite how short the girl was. Short enough to be familiar, really. Mariya's eyes glowed a bit as she studied the girl some. X-Ray vision was useful, and that was definitely Rico from the pizza place.

"You look like you're about to do something stupid." Mariya called from behind, loud enough that some of the shovel goons certainly would have heard.

Rico watched in a morbid kind of curiosity as they started burying the captives. They weren't even deep graves; they seemed shallow. Why would they do this? Intimidation? Popularity? She shook her head. That could wait. Every fiber of her being told her to help them, but she was not able to interfere with their numbers so many. Her father would probably be disappointed.

Then she saw that a fight had broken out among them. Some man with nunchaku and sunglasses was starting to fight them...all of them. If he were left alone, he'd probably die. She began to inch forward when someone, very loudly, said that she looked like she was going to do something stupid. She froze and looked back. Mariya?

"Mariya? What are you...gah, there's no time! Get out of here while you can! They need help!"

And with that, she drew her pistols, launching over the tombstone and running in, assaulting them with rubber bullets. An effective non-lethal solution but not without plenty of pain.

Suddenly there were bullets in the air. Several shovel men hit the dirt, most believing they'd been shot with actual bullets. Fortunately, they would live, and one day come to regret their actions on this day.

Pacific was grateful to have the help. Even though they task was still going to be very painful and difficult, he was glad that he wasn't alone. He didn't recognize the girl who had given her guns to his aide, but if they survived this, he'd be sure to change that.

The big guy was posing a serious threat to him at this point. His strength was simply too much to deal with fairly.

"I'm sorry," Pacific said to the oaf. He pulled out a small device that looked like a mini cannister with a speaker on it.

PING!

With the sudden burst of sound, the big man stumbled back. Blood dripped from his ears and his eyes rolled to the back of his head as his massive frame fell to the ground.

The ping was a very powerful weapon, but it only had one charge. Pacific had hoped to hold onto it longer, but he didn't have time to mess around with this one guy for any longer.

Swarms of Shovel Men came running to take down the two people who had dared to stand against them. Pacific braced himself. The wave was about to hit.

Mariya scuffed as the short girl told her to run away, then rolled her eyes when the red headed hypocrite ran towards the men with shovels. How stupid, like she'd predicted. Mariya's attention fell to on of the men that had slid in around Rico and was looking at her. She regarded him with a scowl as he approached with shovel in hand.

"What are you supposed to be, anyway? The gravedigger? Some stupid name like that?"

The taunt had the man running forward and swinging his shovel, and Mariya had no plans to block. He hit her in the face and despite her usual immunity to such damage... a day in the dark had her feeling some sting and stumbling for a second. When she touched her temple and felt a dribble of blood, that was it for the Kryptonian.

"I'm gonna kill you." She promised, stepping heavily towards the shovel man as he prepared another swing. This one she caught, ripping the shovel from his hands and slamming it into his gut. As the man fell over, screaming in pain, Mariya stomped towards the other two defenders looking angry.

"Hate to cut in, but I think I'm going to break these worms myself." A single line of blood was falling from her temple, though the strike should have rendered a grown man unconscious. As the wave came, Mariya prepared to use her strength to defend.

Rico watched as the guy with the nunchaku had to fight a large combatant. She wanted to take a few shots, but she was busy keeping her own batch off, cracking one in the face with a pistol after evading a swing, and firing two shot into another guy's sternum right next to a man's ear. His eardrum ruptured, and he kneeled forward while howling in pain. Rico jumped onto his back and springboarded off of him backward to fire some quick shots around them. Nearly every shot incapacitated another person, and she backed up to get some time to reload.

"This is just wanton violence," she said, snapping the carousel back into Azur. She also watched as Mariya simply shrugged off a shovel blow, her eyes glowing slightly as she looked in a bit of amazement. "Mariya, you're okay-- but how?"

Some more came in at that moment, trying to use the distraction. She swept their legs and quickly hammered them with some punches, taking them out, and shooting someone's knee. Broken bones all around.

Another girl appeared to help fight the shovel men. She actually took a hit to the face without taking any real damage. That was impossible. Unless, she had some sort of powers. Lewis marveled as she tore the shovel out of the man's hand and beat him with it. This girl was as strong as Cue.

But He couldn't worry about that now. For the moment, they were allies, fighting against a terrible evil.

As the wave of gang membersgot near, Pacific moved with speed and beautiful grace. He jumped back, avoiding an overhead smash, before leaping into a high kick. He parried the next 2 attacks before spinning to hit his attackers in the necks with his nunchucks. He twisted in the air, dancing around a swing before reposting with a back kick. He threw his left nunchuck into someone's groin, then hit them with an uppercut on the chin. Picking up a shovel, he blocked an attack before slamming the handle into the man's chest.

So far, so good. He had incapacitated a handful of enemies, but there were many more on the way. And some of them had guns.

As Mariya settled into the defensive formation with the other vigilantes, she noticed that Rico and the stranger seemed to be more capable than most humans. Rico had the nerve to be worried about the Kryptonian, making her scuff and roll her eyes. "You're smart enough not to need to ask that question. I never mentioned that I'm Kryptonian at the pizza place?"

The third member of the party got into a fighting stance and Mariya noticed the next wave coming forward. Many men. Some armed, but none intimidating enough to worry the arrogant demi-human. She spit to the side, cracking her knuckles as she eyed the enemies.

"And what's your story? Shouldn't a smart girl like you be avoiding situations like this? And this other guy, tell me at least you have some kind of useful power, right?" Mariya wasn't holding her breath or even bothering to wait for an answer. She stepped forward, using her foot to kick a headstone towards the incoming mob. Hopefully that would get their attention.

And so much for respecting the dead, right?
