Akhona's eyes flickered up and then she paused, looking at the woman her eyes narrowing and shaking her head,"She just palmed something, search her now...what are you trying to achieve?" Akhona's tone was hard and uncompromising but years of training made it more than a little convincing even with no real authority her voice just made people do what she wanted before she answered Nicole,"Contact toxin...delivered by touch...I'd imagine we'll find out how up this young ladies sleeve."

 

Back in the bathroom, now fully covered in the Mamba Battlesuit John emerged from the cubicle, ready to head out at the first sign of Akhona needing help, for now he was simply listening to what she was saying waiting for the call to action.

"Poisoned!" Astrid said way to loudly. "What kind of cowardly piece of garbage poisons a teenager at an art museum! I just, I can't even..."

 

Astrid started cursing in her native language. When she couldn't think of anymore curse words in Norwegian she moved on to German, Swedish and then Old Norse. All the while she wanted to bring out Porrkubba even through she knew that would be pointless and possibly make the whole situation even worse than it already was. Still, the urge was there and Astrid had to fight to suppress it. 

 

Fortunately the person working on Connie mentioned contact poison and that got Astrid to focus. "That means she was probably poisoned recently, right? Which means the poisoner is probably still here..."

The Guard looked at Akhona and frowned at her words, before he started to moved towards the short hard brunette, holding up a hand, glancing between the two women, "The police are on their way, so we're just all gonna settle down, okay?"  His voice booming in the manner of a guy use to being able to use his mass, and volume, to control things.

The woman looked at him, her face suddenly hardening, "Ah... screw it.  NOW!"  She screamed out, grasping the guard's wrist, an spinning him into a hammerlock quickly, as her other hand rose up, with an oddly shaped gun in hand, and blasted a reddish gas in fact, making the guard drop down, gagging and sputtering.  She pulled a mask over her face, showing herself to be The Red Death"You bloodsuckers!  Draining the population dry for your wealth and excesses!"  

As that happened, someone came sprinting towards the group, and dove forward, rolling across the Corinne's inert form, and ending up neatly in a standing position with the teen across her shoulders, in a fireman's carry position, a gas mask on that person's face, and she started running away from the cluster of people, at a full sprint that was at least as fast as an Olympic level athlete.

Lastly, the door to the bathroom was kicked open, as a gas mask wearing person there, his coat thrown open, showing six robotic limbs, each ending in some sort of energy weapon, and all firing wildly into the bathroom, and at Black Mamba with a veritable shower of blind fire of crackling red energy.

Nicole lowered her hand and inched her way backwards as the Red Death posturized for the world and as Corinne was carried away at record speeds. These were the most annoying kinds of villains, Nicole had come to realize in her time as Salvo. Bombastic villains with a cause.

 

But she hoped the Red Death's theatrics would let her slip away to where she could suit up. Corinne was getting farther away every second but she was confident she could find them if she had her sensors.

 

"Now's the time, guys." Nicole hissed under her breath. "Use your powers and blast them!"

 

Then she heard the sound of energy weapons and she tossed all sense of stealthiness and stepped on the gas, swinging her wheelchair around and away from the commotion.

 

"Thursday, get your bat and start swinging!" She called out.

 

If there was already shooting this early then the Red Death was looking for more than an audience. She was rearing to cause some damage and she and her schoolmates could stop them.

Quickly the situation seemed to turn violent with it all spiraling out of control, though a poisoning was a serious situation in of itself. Àjàṣorò was caught by surprise about the turn in the situation, even her sharpened senses failed to warn her in time. Rapidly trying to catch up she took a defensive stance, her suits claws forming around her hand at a thought.

 

“I am always one to listen to another's point of view!” feeling no need now to hide she use her rich Dakani accent “But violence is never the way to enact change, let us help this woman and no more need be said.”

The priority now was to make sure Corinne was sure and secure, they could worry about the others after that was dealt with.

Astrid didn't need to be told twice to spring into action. Her blood was already pumping after finding out that some cowardly creep had poisoned one of her classmates and she was more than ready to hit someone for it. "Scheißkerl!" She yelled, as she bought Porrklubba from her backpack. 

 

She knew that bringing out Porrklubba in a packed art museum would almost certainly led to questions, and some part her recognized that using the weapon in such a confided space could well likely trash every exhibit there, but Astrid couldn't help but not care about any of that right now. Instead, she immediately charged at the gas mask wearing kidnapper holding Connie. The guy or gal sprinting with Connie was fast but with Porrklubba in her hands Astrid could fly and try to cut them off.

Things went south … very quickly. Monica had just about been able to follow the situation when everything was still just frantic, but that had apparently only been the first stage of this all. The guard went down pretty close to her, and just like that she’d been placed in the middle of … a political kidnapping?

 

She didn’t really know how to react beyond taking another careful step backwards, trying to figure out her next move. And then, yet another person showed up, and whatever calm had remained got, somewhat literally, blasted out the window.

 

For now, Monica was happy to not draw any attention to herself, pulling her arm in front of her face just in case. Both to deal with the gas, and to not get identified as Lady Liberty, the entire thing was already political enough. Yet, with that decision came doubt, because this wasn’t just a situation she could sit out.

The Black Mamba was many things strong, powerful, immune to bullets but nimble was not one of them and John could do nothing but stand there as the red energy beams slammed into the black and gold suit, but it was very, very unlikely that it was going to get through the armor. Sparks flew and he tried to figure out what was going on, scanning with his radar to see what else was happening beyond this guy.

 

Akhona, was stunned by the speed at which they moved, her shield was already up and invisible but she also knew what she was and it was not a combatant. She drew back even as she got to watch at least a few super heroes reveal who they were, and she knew already what she needed to be doing while they were fighting...someone would have to doctor the computers and cameras recording things to keep their identities safe....

When Àjàṣorò saw her fellow classmate being snatched away she didn’t hesitate to rush into action, despite wanting to be treated as normal whilst on the states, it was nothing compared to keeping people safe.

 

“I’m afraid I can’t let you get away with this!”

 

Closing with the opponent she went down low and swept out a leg, with the desire to trip over her enemy, she’d worry about Corinne one they were safely down. Besides she was a dancer, she was made of sterner stuff than most.

The woman in the hoodie staggered, and fell as Aja kicked out her leg, dropping to the ground, and dumping Corinne to the ground.  Aja's classmate was under a paralytic, as evidence by how she was a veritable ragdoll as she fell to the ground and hit.  The woman, however, did not just remain in place, she pushed herself up, and moved to scoop up Corinne again, and continue in moving towards the exit.

"Get her out of here, we will take care of the rest!" Red Death cried out, and with that she pulled out her dual gas guns, and flipping a selector, she unleashed a heavy dark cloud that filled the contained room, which an HVAC system that was not intended to deal with chemical weapons, or the equivalent of a smoke bomb.  It filled and flooded the air around them, while not choking it made normal visual senses new impossible.

The other baddy, had all of the gun arms focus into the room, with the blaster pods there glowing for a second before unleashing a combined and focused blast.  This resulted in a collapsing burst right next to Black Mamba, the small explosion seeking to stun him, before the trench coated baddy turned to hightail it out of the room and into the dense cloud.

Black Mamba was hit by the explosion, rocking the black and gold suit into the toilet stall's smashing down the walls and cracking at least one cistern as water started to flood everywhere, but the suit kept him safe and coherent while years of experience let him act even though his head was pounding from the explosion.

 

The radio tracking built into his suit let him know exactly where Six Shooter was. Kicking his way up from the smashed tile floor, golden circles of energy thrummed out from the suits feet sending him hurtling towards the six armed thug. Bits of toilet, stall and water slid off of the suit as he flew through the door, fists leading, directly at Six Shooter, intent on laying a seriously stunning blow on the trench coat wearing villain but at the last moment he shifted out of the way and Mamba missed with his swipe.

 

Targeting reticules lit up his Head's up display as he correlated friend from foe, battle was joined and Black Mamba was in his element and the Six armed criminal would soon be laying sprawled at Black Mamba's feet.

This was bad. Really bad. Monica could just about see Aja sprinting by towards Corinne. The latter of which hit the ground in a way that was, at the very least, not pleasant, and would likely have some consequences.

 

Not that Monica could tell, because just as that happened, smoke filled the room. She could just about see her hands before her face but not much else, and certainly not the various people moving around the room. Just hitting one of them would be risky, chances were pretty high she'd hit somebody that was on her side.

 

Her powers, meanwhile, were just as useful in this situation, ie. not at all. Light didn't really help inside smoke, unless she wanted to paint a target on her back, which she most certainly didn't. At this point, she was entirely useless, in a situation where she really couldn't afford to be. She couldn't wait for the smoke to clear either, that would take too long.

 

The one thing she could do, perhaps, was move towards where Corinne had been. Whoever was trying to kidnap her would be close, after all. She couldn't jump it – too risky without seeing the wall or anything in the way – but she could push forwards. She had a pretty good idea of where everybody was, so she walked forward at a nice pace, before noticing a silhouette in front of her. It was pretty easy to tell that this was one of the kidnappers, considering the person was currently holding Corinne and didn't fit Aja's profile.

 

This was about the right moment to spring into action then, Monica had managed to delay doing so until she had an opportunity to strike properly. She brought her elbow up, and seizing the moment, smashing it directly into the side of the person she'd just come across.

Akhona was not worried about the smoke, a set of circuits hidden in her necklace slid a heads up display in front of her face with a map of the room and everyone tagged on it by the radio sensors built into it. As the battle unfolded she realized that the girl was being abducted, after being dropped hard on the floor.

 

She didn't know why but that girl was no older than Nkosozana her daughter, and she couldn't stand by. Moving through the smoke, hoping it gave her some cover from the people who had deployed it she reached out with her telekinetic grip trying to wrest the girl away from her kidnapper and hold her away from them.....but her lack of combat training, something John had been harping on for years, showed and at the last moment the woman holding her captive jumped back moving out of the way and leaving Akhona empty handed..

Things had gone from bad to worse since Astrid took up Porrklubba and started pursing Corinne's would-be kidnapper. Smoke had suddenly filled most of the gallery and Astrid could an explosion coming from somewhere through all the craziness around her. She wanted to turn around a deal with the smoke, whoever was making that noise, and help civilians get out of here in one piece. She wanted to deal with everything going wrong right now but she was only one person after and she had to believe that her friends would do what came naturally to help. Also, she was mad. Really, really mad, which made it difficult to focus on anything else but the kidnapping asshole that was going after.

 

The asshole in question had managed to get a headstart on her but with Porrklubba letting her fly above the crowd of people, Astrid was able to finally catch and drop right in front of her as she was still trying to escape.

 

"You have exactly one chance to hand her over nicely you jævel. If not I swear I'm going to-" Astrid was cut off before she could finish. The kidnapper tried to simply push past her but Astrid wasn't about to be accommodating. She stood her ground and swung with her right. Her opponent tried to catch the blow with  her free hand but Astrid had the strength of an Asgardian and was to overpower. Caught off guard, the kidnapper opponent lost her grip on Corinne.

 

Instinct and training told Astrid she should just keep going to town on her enemy, but a better part of her wasn't going to let Corinne hit the ground. She slammed the kidnapper out of the way and dove for Corinne and managed to catch her before she hit her head on the hard gallery floor.
