"What the %&#¤!?" the leader of the gunmen had not expected the ground to be shattered under him. Wood, dust and tiles were all shattered by the mighty cosmic fist of Captain Cosmos! What he lacked in finesse and skills, he certainly had in pure power! Despite his initial shock, he was quick to act once he landed on the floor below, quickly holstering his gun and grabbing his rifle. 

 

"Die you %¤#&ing bastard!" His language was certainly colorful as he pulled the trigger, sending bullets flying all around Captain Cosmos, but alas, it seemed that the shock of the fall threw off his aim.

 

At the same time, the other gunmen moved quickly, each moving to grab a hostage, while shouting for everyone else to sit down.

Cap Cosmos

 

"You think bullets are going to stop me?" asked Captain Cosmos, almost contemptiously. He barely made the effort to avoid them.

 

He looked above and saw the hostage taking. That wasn't good. He wasn't a negotiator. He wondered how much he had actually achieved. Not a whole hill of beans...as his father would say. But damn his father. He was Captain Cosmos!

 

He turned his attention back to the lead gunman. He took his time and took a carefully aimed, lazy, short swing at the gunman. At least that would be one out for the count. 

 

He moved back to make sure the gunmen could not see him. Although he could continue to easily see and hear them...

The swing hit home, knocking the gunman back a few steps. Whatever else he was going on, the gunman seemed human enough, or at least human enough to be hurt by the punch. He groaned, reaching up to grab his nos, where blood had started pouring. It seemed the cosmic fist of Captain Cosmos had managed to break his nose. 

 

"Hey!" Above, five of the gunmen had maneuvered closer to the hole, making sure that Captain Cosmos could see them. "One more step, and these guys get lead poisoning, hero!" The one that was addressing Buddy didn't seem to be playing around at all. No, he sounded deadly serious in fact. And who was he holding, but the very gentleman that had roused Captain Cosmos into action?

In a flash of instant, Captain Cosmos changed!

 

He was completely flat. A very two dimensional character. 

 

But his brain breathed a sigh of relief as the pressure came off. The after effects...well, they would linger. 

 

He dashed through the air, his form twisted so that those gunmen peering down would see nothing. Perhaps they might catch a sliver of activity if they were at the edge of the hole, but at this angle it would be most hard to see him, if they could at all...

 

But his fist was still real, and he swung it with all his might at the lead gunman! He had to credit the gentleman with the grit to still be standing after the first punch. Few would have. But now, Captain Cosmos would pull no punches! Especially flat two-dimensional ones!

The gunman didn't seem to believe his own eyes. "This wasn't the deal!" He backed away, stumbling slightly and avoiding the blow from Captain Cosmos! As the might paper thin fist passed through the air, he started screaming various curses and worse as he raised his rifle and started frantically pulling the trigger, spraying a wide pattern of bullets all over Captain Cosmos. He was getting frantic. "I didn't sign up to deal with any freaky heroes!"

 

Up the hole, the other gunmen let out a string of curses, somewhat mimicking their leader. "He's gone!" "Nah, I saw him moving!" "There he is!" "Just the light, man!" Captain Cosmos' actions were clearly throwing them off guard, even as they struggled to hold on to their hostages. Except for one of them. "There!" Pushing the hostage to the side, he quickly raised his rifle and pulled the trigger, firing into the hole at Captain Cosmos.

Captain Cosmos

 

The bullets sprayed over Captain Cosmos's costume, creating small pockmarks in the fabric. They stung. 

 

But they didn't paint the walls with his spleen, which he was most grateful for. A bit of pain, he could live with. Not enjoy, but live with. 

 

He took a massive swing at the Gunman leader - a weighty right hook that clipped the man and sent him across the room. 

 

He was surprised the man was still standing. He was made of iron!

 

But more importantly the situation was getting out of hand. He knew he had fluffed this one; he had dropped the ball. He wasn't a negotiator, he wasn't a tactitian. All the strength in the world wasn't enough to solve this kind of problem. There was no point letting his ego force him to carry on flogging a dead horse. 

 

So he vanished. 

 

Now existing as a mathematical line, he was truly invisible. 

 

And he could watch and wait for a bit...

The leader of the gunmen were sent flying by the blow, slamming into the wall, and yet, he was still standing. Made of iron indeed, as he struggled to get to his feet. Or maybe he was just lucky? Who could tell?

 

"Ah, what the hell is this now?" the gunman that had last taken a shot at Captain Cosmos sounded like he was at least starting to take charge of the situation now, even as he was as perplexed as the rest when the good captain vanished. "What kind of freak is this, boss?" He only got a groan in response. The leader of the gunmen seemed to be very much attempting to stop the world from spinning.

 

"Fine!" the other one barked, raising his rifle to the head of his hostage, who had tried to crawl away. "Show yourself, or I'll blow his brains all over the floor. That what you want, hero?"
