As the evening is setting in Independence Port the
calm is shattered with the sound of battle. A team of heroes has just
busted up a Council robot research laboratory disguised as a warehouse
in the Liberty Quay. The hero team was sent in to recover information
on a new Hoverbot. What they found was a fully functional Mega
Hoverbot. This Hoverbot is ten times the size of a normal bot.
it’s armed with twin rocket launchers, duo thirty caliber chain
guns and capable of carrying up to three Zenith Mech Men. The Hoverbot
flies past Valor Bridge as the Council troops, a Cor Leonis Vortex
Marksman, Galaxy trooper and the research scientist fire at the
pursuing super team.
“Surge Pack, try to take out the left engine.
I’ll hit the right one.” “Got it Fallout.” The
two Blasters fly into range and cut loose with their respective
energies, one electrical, the other radiation. Both shots miss their
intended target but Surge Pack’s Lightning Bolt catches the
Galaxy trooper, shocking him unconscious. “Well at least I go one
of the Council,” says Surge Pack as he and Fallout fly after the
“Thanks, that gives me an opening,” the
team hears over their communicators as Fallout sees Fem Fury, the
Mutant Scrapper of the team bound off one of the bridges pylons. Fem
Fury just catches the wing of the Mega Hoverbot in her landing from her
super leap. She quickly takes out the Marksman with a vicious series of
punches and kicks.
“You heroes will never take me alive!”
Yells the scientist as Fem Fury turns on him. But before she can reach
him, the scientist takes out a small control device and presses a
button. The right engine of the Hoverbot explodes, killing the Council
Fem Fury is knocked back by the explosion and is barely able to catch herself before falling off the bot.
“Oh no! We’re not going to clear the
rails!” shouts Fem Fury as the Hoverbot in on a collision course
with the Green Line tram cutting across Crey Cove.
“Fallout, its going to hit the train and that
thing has a nuclear core!” yells Geldavar, the Mystical Defender
of the group. Fallout puts all his power into his flight speed but is
not fast enough. Fem Fury screams in frustration and fear as she hold
on to the Hoverbot as it collides with the Green Line Tram. The huge
explosion lights up the sky. It can be heard and seen all across
The Bell Medical Center emergency room is filled
with injuries soon after the explosion. The doctors and nurses on hand
are immediately swamped with triage patients as the most critical ones
are rushed to surgery. The teleport system is overloaded with a mass
transport. After hours of non stop work the medical staff is able to
catch their collective breath.
“It’s a good thing that Defender,
what’s his name…Geldavar, was able to help out at the
“Yeah, especially with the teleport system
blowing out like that. I never heard of a failure with the system
As the night sets in news filters in about the
incident. All in all the only casualty of the night was the Council
scientist. The police report that the tram occupants survived because
of a giant wall of ice that was somehow set up between the impact site
and the passenger.
In one of the recovery rooms a young woman slowly
regains conscious. “Doctor, doctor, quick she’s waking
up,” calls out the nurse. The doctor goes over to the patient and
starts asking questions while shining his pen light into her eyes.
“Miss, can you tell me how you feel?” “It’s
Missus and I feel like a train fell on me.” The doctor continues
with his examination. “Can you tell me your name?”
“My name is Linda Parker, where am I?” “What is the
last thing you remember?”
“Let’s see, I was on my way home after a picnic lunch with
my husband, he works over on Talus Island. Was on the tram heading for
Steel Canyon, that’s where we live. This must be Bell Medical
since we are in Independence Port, when the collision alarm went off in
“That’s correct, a team of heroes took out a prototype robot that collided with the tram.”
“I remember throwing up an ice wall to try to protect us inside the tram. “
“Well that explains why you were sent through the hero
teleporter.” Says the nurse. The patient tells the nurse that she
is a mutant Blaster with the hero name of Winter Witch.
“But I’m on leave right now
because…” that’s when a terrified look crosses
Linda’s face. “Oh my God! Where’s my baby? What
happened to my baby!” yells Linda in a much panicked voice.
“Nurse sedate her! Mrs. Parker please, you
must calm down. Your son is safe.” Linda’s eyes roll back
as the sedative takes affect and sends her into the calming darkness of
The first thing Winter Witch’s mind registers
as she swims back to consciousness is the sound two people talking.
“So she’s Winter Witch, that explains
the teleport.” “Yes, the Agency forgot to suspend the auto
detector for the emergency teleport system when she went on leave. This
is the first time I’ve ever heard of anything like this happening
with the system.”
“Unique circumstances doc. Hey looks like she’s coming
to.” Linda slowly opens her eyes and is greeted by a smiling face
of a pretty red head and the doctor. Linda starts to try and get up,
with panic entering her face.
“My baby… what…” “Easy Winter Witch,
easy. You’ve been through a blender of sorts today, take it
easy.” “Who are you?” “I’m Fem Fury, a
mutant Scrapper. I was on the team that took down the Mega Hoverbot the
Council was developing that caused this mess”
“Why won’t they tell me what happened to my baby?”
sobs Linda. “Doc, can we have a private moment please, cape to
cape you know.” The doctor closes the door as he exits the room.
“It’s kind of hard to explain but I know your son is fine
Winter Witch.” “Please call me Linda my identity
isn’t secret.” “Okay my name is Melissa Evans, call
Fem Fury goes into the story of the battle with the Hoverbot. How the
Council scientist committed suicide by blowing up the bot. The
collision with the tram and how Fallout was able to contain the
radiation from the power core of the Hoverbot.
“But when the emergency teleport activated the electromagnetic
field disrupted the teleport. You and I were in transient states when
that happened and well…” Fem Fury steps back and turns so
that Linda can see Missy’s full body profile.
“Your son ended up inside me.” States Fem Fury as she
caresses a hand over her greatly distended belly. “The doctors
feel that with both of us being mutants may have contributed to the mix
up. They also said that with only a few weeks left before his birth
that leaving him where he is will be less traumatic on him.”
After a few minutes of digesting all the information a calm expression
crosses Linda’s face. “So Missy, how do you feel about
giving birth to my son?” “I’m a Scrapper, that is not
a problem but I think I need to rethink my costume.” Says Fem
Fury, looking down at her big round bare midriff.
