  3. Updated with Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 joining the rankings. I tried to avoid spoilers as much as possible, and don't believe there's any in their entries, but if you haven't watched them yet, and plan to, I suggest you do that first before reading my comments on their entries.

    "What of it, Corona?" Vyrdnaya simply scoffed at her teammate's obviously sentimentally charged comments, as she bore witness to the proceedings with the rest of the Praetorians at hand. "The independent states that wish to remain allied with the Coalition would still enjoy our protection. Attacking or otherwise harassing them would constitute a declaration of war, just the same as attacking any other Coalition-affiliated or member state. I highly doubt that Kinan Khan would thoughtlessly choose to fight a war on two fronts if he can help it. Not when he has to deal with an usurper in his former territory." "And as for the rest of the unafiliated states, well... You said it yourself; free and independent. If those states choose to remain independent from the Khanate, they've obviously considered the pros and cons for doing so, and as such, should be held accountable to their decision." She had no nice words of compassion to speak for those she didn't know or trust. "The fact is, even if they claim independence, they'd still qualify as internal conflict of the Khanate Empire. Unless they'd be willing to join the Coalition or officially seek our protection as well, I don't see how they should be our concern." Folding her arms at chest level, she voiced her own concerns. "Rather than that, the threat of the so called Sovereign is a real one. We did have an encounter with his forces in the Galor system, some time after the Incursion. We were dispatched on a simple scouting mission, and found his forces reigning down fire on the nearest inhabited planet, Galor III." Running through her memory, Vyrdnaya recounted the events that took part there with machine-like accuracy. "The pirate vessel acting under the authority of Dovox not only proved thoroughly uncooperative in any attempt at ceasefire, it opened fire against us while repeatedly ignoring warnings to the contrawise, resulting in us taking hostile action as a countermeasure. While it is true that he poses an immediate threat to the Khan's rule, Dovox has proven himself an enemy to the Coalition itself, and we would be fools to ignore that. We should seek stability over needless confrontation. If the Khan is truthfully willing to, if not join the Coalition, then at the very least forge an understanding with it, then it is my opinion that it is in our best interest to aid him in dealing with the Pirate who would be Sovereign."

    Mater Vyrdna recalled the Drones, after they had finished scouring the battle-damaged area. This part of the planet at least seemed safe for the time being; those who were trapped under debris were rescued, and those who were working with the twelve convicts were rounded up. "Good job." she congratulated them, and ordered them to dismantle and restore their original form and function. Afterwards, she lend a hand with transfering the remaining prisoners to the Devotion. They prioritized the ringleaders, those who had powers and exceptional talents, so Vyrdnaya had little to worry about the criminals who'd remain on the planet Dreed III, until their transport would arrive. A problem for another day, then. Now, she was standing at ease, with her hands behind her back, as the Lor Official made his address. Corona and Cavalier at her sides, Vyrdnaya listened solemny, as she remembered the events of this fateful day.

  8. How did things end up as they did? When was it that Jerry took a wrong turn? One moment, he was minding his business in the university library, going through tomes about Mesopotamian deities, when the radio show he was listening in alerted him on a series of heists taking place in Bayview, picking up his interest. Next moment, after a week of investigation proved ultimately fruitless, he witnessed while on patrol a speeding motorcycle making its escape from a police car. After stopping it, he found the stash of Zombie Powder. Inquiring about the motorcycle's owner, he found himself in a certain shipping company's wharehouse, were he met up with three other superheroes, Phantasmo, Bird of Arms, and Errant, all of whom, for their own reasons, were following the trail of the powder. Learning that the wharehouse was being frequented by a particular biker gang as an occasional hangout, the heroes continued on with the trail, until they arrived at the bar the bikers favoured. And after discussing with each other and arriving on a common plan, did the heroes proceed to infiltrate the bar under cloak. A plan which worked perfectly... until Errant lost his focus, causing everyone to be exposed to the biker element of the bar. If there's anything that I regret the most, that's not having transformed into air from the beginning. thought Meatheral, as he stood goofily in a semi crouching stance, clad in his white and green costume. "Sooo... ummm... any of you folks fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd?" He tried breaking the ice with the soon to be angry mob.

    Having taken care of X'Madi, Mater Vyrdna looked behind her to where she'd been mere moments ago, at the battlefield between the Praetorians and the escaped convicts. A few blast flashes still flared, and Vyrdnaya wanted to join back to the fight as soon as possible, but she had to relent. Transforming to her original form, she descended towards X'Madi's fallen body, in order to secure the escaped convict. "It wouldn't do to let you off my sights, even for a second." She clicked her tongue, as she grabbed the Lor Mentat over her shoulder. "Ooof, heavy." She muttered, as she reinforced her body with hydraulic machinery, allowing her to carry the convict with ease. Taking flight once more, she headed back towards the battlefield, only to find out that by that time, things had started to calm down significantly. The Praetorians appeared to be scurrying along, but they didn't appear to be engaged in battle. Breathing a sigh of relief, the Akarnian Technomorph landed nearby as she addressed Paradigm. "Sorry for bailing, I found a rat trying to escape towards the suburbs." Vyrdnaya commented, indicating X'Madi's unconscious body on her shoulder. "What's the situation here?" She asked Paradigm, who proceeded to relay what had transpired. "Understood! I'll leave X'Madi to you and Cavalier, then." She said, handing off the body to Kyle. "As for the search..." she looked around, and found a pile of machinery scraps. Smiling, she got closer and touched the heap. It soon started reorganizing, fusing, and transforming into animated drones. Using this method, she created 10 Spy Drones, 10 Aid Drones, and 5 Combat Drones. "These guys will prove of some help." The Spy Drones looked like small-sized aircrafts, capable of hovering and flying at high speeds. She ordered them to fly around, search for wounded or felled people, and relay the information back to her. Mater Vyrdna would use that information to coordinate the rest of the drones. The Aid Drones looked burly, with big flexible rotor tractors for legs, and compact hydraulic arms equiped with drills. Them, she ordered to clear the fallen debris in their path, as their primary objective. Finally, the Combat Drones looked similar to the Aid Drones, but instead of having drills, their arms looked extendable and flexible. Their back housed missile launchers, and their chest was mounted with a high compression Melt Blaster. Their orders were to help police and secure the area around the Aid Drones, and to assist them in the heavy-lifting, whenever possible. "Head out." She ordered, and the drones begun upon their Search&Rescue operation.

    "Gnngh!" Cor's attack managed to knock some wind out of Mater Vyrdna, but thankfully, Cavalier came to her aid. In fact, his well placed shot struck true, and Cor went sleeping. "Much appreciated, partner." She thanked the human. "We're making some progress here, we can't let up now. We've got to surround the remai-" she tried to rally Kyle, as she noticed, at that point, one of the convicts make a panicked escape. It didn't take long for her to realise who that Lor was. "X'Madi..." The images of the droids gunning everything at sight, and the thought of the dead Lor captives aboard the Sar-Lan, combined together inside of Vyrdnaya's mind, painting a grotesque picture of hopelessness and dread. Anger rose within her, her right arm clenched so hard that it was crushed under its own power, and her left eye flashed a robotic red. "Oh, no you don't." She simply mouthed, having forgotten Kyle was only a few feet away from her, indeed, having forgotten everything else. Her wings were folded inside her back, and rocket turbines tooke their place. Her legs fused together and whirled, transforming into a single drill. Her destroyed right hand was morphed into a hydraulic shovel, while her left hand reverted to its original state. In mere moments, Mater Vyrdna took off to the sky, chasing after the fleeing Lor Mentat. "If you think you'll make your escape so easily..." She shouted at her, as she closed in. "THEN YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER THING COMING!" she practically screamed, as she waved her now massive right arm of a shovel at X'Madi. So great was the weight and force behind the attack, that not only did it broke through X'Madi's forcefield, it actively sent her crashing towards the ground, as if she were a fly, struck down by a swatter. Vyrdnaya checked on her foe from above, and as soon as she confiremed that X'Madi wasn't moving, she spat at the unconscious criminal, with a distainful look. "The proud crewmembers of Sar-Lan send their regards."

    Vyrdnaya ignored Corona and Lady Tal'gar's exchange; as far as she was concerned, as long as the Khanates did not pose any immediate danger, then whatever grieviances they might have incured upon others was none of her concern. Especially if said grieviances were conducted while the Khanates had been under the influence of the Communion. Doubly so if it meant that she'd stay away from Galvanic's dangerous EMP field!!! No, if anything, the fact that the Khanates had been acting under the Communion's control, earned Vyrdnaya's sympathy; during the old war, Vyrdnaya had witnessed plenty alies fall under the thrall of the Communion hive-mind, she had seen Delaztri ships swallowed whole and converted into Communion drones, while aiding the cause in the frontlines. Tales of comrades turned to the enemy side were not uncommon, and the Delaztri often had to resort to killing their brothers and sisters in arms. Such was the reality of war. Doubly so, for a war that wasn't being conducted for honor, prestige, or some other <lofty> purpose, but a war for survival, a war against total eradication/assimilation. Now, though? Now, the war was over. The Communion threat was no more. And the rest of the world had to move on, rebuild what had been lost. And if that meant that former sworn enemies would have to set aside their grudges? Then so be it! The safety of those who live weights heavier still than the regrets of those who have died. Of those who were left behind... That last thought had lingered in Vyrdnaya's mind far more than she'd be comfortable with. So, instead, she focused her attention on Ambassador Raal. "Transformed? Hardly, your honour. What you see is not the end result, but merely a work in progress. Which is all the more reason why we are sincerely elated that you've graced us with your presence. Should your intentions prove honest, ambassador, it would greatly help in further promoting peace, stability, and understanding, throughout the four corners of the universe. And that is why we Praetorians intend to see the talks transpire smoothly, and with no incident." She might have been laying it a bit thick there with the formal speech, but Vyrdnaya spoke her mind, and spoke it trully she did.
