no way could a sniper kill that guy without killing the rest
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:44pm On Feb 12, 2018|
Ultimategeneral:It was a micro explosive surgically grafted somewhere in his skill, which he was unaware of. The explosive was triggered when he tried revealing the name of the traitor in the earth government. So the people he worked for put that in his head as a failsafe, so if he tried revealing too much, BOOM his head blows up.
Pretty nifty... If u ask me.

It was a failsafe mechanism and a very smart one at that. Don't worry, the guy don die
Apollux o, I sha hope that his last conversation wasn't transmitted to anywhere, because I'm amazed at how it blew when he wanted to mention the names (even though it was a supposed trick) and not when he mentioned the afterlife

“I know you won’t be surprised receiving my call at this time, since you rejected a request from James, you would have anticipated he will call me for help. “ The voice of General Leyland Steadman said from the holo display of the vidphone.
“Sir, there is really nothing else James can get from me. “ Marvel said still winded a little from the hours of work out he has been in, until the urgent call from the general has interrupted him. “I delivered the prisoners to his underlings, so what ever he needs to know he can ask from them. He doesn’t need any debrief from me. “
The general smiled, already used to the bickering that has long existed between Marvel and James for a long time, even back when Marvel was still in active service in the marine. But the smile was just a facial expression that tells nothing of the turmoil raging in his heart.
“Anyway you are wrong if you think I called you because of your disagreement with James. A lot of things are happening at an accelerated rate, that we are unable to do anything about officially. My hands are tied by a standing court order. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:05pm On Feb 13, 2018|
“Oh saw that on holo vid news. “ the bounty hunter told the general. “It was funny how easily the mega corporations indicted in the incident cleverly wiggled out of everything and was still able to clamp an injunction down on you guys' throat, effectively stopping you from going after them. “
“We weren’t stopped totally though, we were told that our investigation can resume if we can come up with what the court will accept as convincing evidence. “ Leyland said the initial smile dropping from his face. “Things got complicated as we were trying to get evidence in other to resume the investigation. “
“What happened sir? “
“Where have you been in the last three hours? Haven’t you been watching the news? It’s all over all holo vid news channels. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:09pm On Feb 13, 2018|
“ I have been busy working out all that time. “ Marvel called out to his Artificial Defense Assistant. “ADA do you have the record of all the news that have come through comsat and webnet in the last three hours? “
“Presently all news that have come through are sixty three thousand seven hundred and twenty three. “ ADA electronic voice said as her holographic image appeared. “You requested for all interruption to be kept on hold during your work out session. “
“Ok ADA, play back the relevant news to me, filter out all forms of adverts. “
“There are still thirty eight thousand four hundred and eleven news records. “
“Damn ADA, I just need you to get me the ones that are relevant to me. “
“That will be impossible to achieve sir, as I have no data on what might be relevant to you at this moment, I have no access to your mind. “ the cold impersonal voice continued. “I suggest sir that you give me key words to search for. “
“ADA when did you became this cold and distant? “
“Since my reboot, there are aspects of my basic programming that are yet to be uploaded and updated. “
“No wonder you have been acting real odd for a while now. “ He turned to the general who was watching from the holo vid with an apologetic look. “I’m sorry sir, I wasn’t aware of this.”
“It’s ok Marvel, let me see if I can help. “ The general focused on the Defense Assistant. “ADA use this search parameters. Senator Mattrow Beldwin, Kidnapped. Then under the security filter search for propaganda video. Time frame,1630-1645 ET. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:17pm On Feb 13, 2018|
“Alright General Leyland Steadman. “ ADA said as her hologram image vanished and was replaced with something else
The image of a man, not readily recognizable because of his bruised face, puffy and bloody lips. His hairs lay in tangled twists, clothes, a simple white jumpsuit, stained with blood and torn. His two hands were tied behind him and was forced to kneel. Behind him stands a man that appears to be a giant, more than seven feet tall. He was wearing a black colored jumpsuit, with belts holding ammunition boxes crossing his chest. He was holding a Lazer rifle with the muzzle pointed at the kneeling man. His face was covered with a black hood.
Beside him were other people dressed like him, all in black, with black hoods covering their faces, all holding Lazer rifles. Three other captives where also before the black clad men, they were all females. One was an older looking woman, with the other two, looking like teenagers, all on same white jumpsuit like the battered man. The background on the video was of a duracrete wall with several colored graffiti, words denouncing earth, its rulers and citizens.
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:21pm On Feb 13, 2018|
“General, that bares a striking resemblance to Senator Mattrow Beldwin. “
“You are correct, that is him with his wife and two daughters. “
“Looks like he is captured by…. Who are those people anyway? “
“Well watch the video and you will get your preliminary answer. “ the general said.
“We are the Colonies Liberation Front. We are fighting for the freedom of the colonies, to break the oppressive yoke of the greedy earth government. They have refused to allow us freedom to build our own armies and hold territories as is our right because they want to continue to control us. They continue to rule us from hundreds of light years away, taxing us from the product of our hard labors. Earth get fattened from our work but we gain little or nothing in return. Long have we borne this in silence, long have we endured the whip lash of our earth task masters. Long have we groan under the heel of their oppressions. But no more. This time we are fighting back. “
The words were being spoken by the giant covered in black, with demonstration of punctuating each of his sentences with gun waving.
“Today we strike our first blow against the oppressors on earth. Here is one of the greedy filth, a so called senator that has publicly spoken against the freedom of the Colonies because he is among the leeches that has grown fat feeding on our collective wealth. “ So saying the giant kicked the kneeling senator, and he fell face down on the floor.
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:27pm On Feb 13, 2018|
“This is a message to the earth government, we are giving the Earth Global Senate five hours to reconvened and reverse their stance and give total autonomy to the colonies. If they fail to do that, the senator will die by a publicly shown execution and each member of his family will follow likewise, each every hour after that. “
The speaker now faced the holo vid totally and the view zoomed as his face filled the whole screen. “And if the earth government continue to refuse us freedom, we will continue to pass down judgment on all you leaders of the earth. None of you will be safe, none will be free and none of you will escape until you grant us freedom. You have five hours to rescind your decision. “
The room was silent after the holo vid clip ran its course. “These guys are fools, don’t they realize that broadcasting a kidnapping is a sure way of being caught. “ Marvel observed.
“Normally that would have been the case but these ones seemed to be so confident of their cover. “ General Leyland said. “Beyond this being a propaganda, there are other things at work. It’s been centuries past this specific terrorist modus operandi have ceased because it became so easy to catch people who act like this. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:32pm On Feb 13, 2018|
“Group like this don’t just spring up. Any Intel Earthwatch might have stumbled across that would have suggested a group like this acting clandestinely? “
“None, Marvel. This is the first time we are seeing and having any hint at all of the Colonies Liberation Front. “
“Then it’s all a scam, sir. “
“Yes you are quite right, Marvel. “ The general said his voice sounding subdued through the vidphone vox box. “Well like an old time tradition of the government the present ruling body on earth is patterned after, no negotiations with terrorists, though that term haven’t been used publicly in more than three centuries. “
“Only fools and gullible ones will fall for that cheap propaganda. “
“Yes, “ the general agreed. “But unfortunately, that about sums up nearly ninety percent of the total human population. The Earth Global Senate have secretly been pressuring the executive arm for a kind of response. They see this act as a direct attack on them. Earth president has personally called me and entrusted me with this. Though an executively backed action, it has to be clandestine. That’s why I’m coming to you. “

Damibiz:Lol didn't know I have some queens reading my story... Anyway happy val to them and everyone on this thread (ahem the queens should identify themselves o)
On something else, I wished I can be writing stories for each holiday period, for example, I wanted to write a story for Xmas titled "Red Christmas" a horror but I wasn't through with this one so I just forgot it. For Valentine, i planned something titled "Roses are Red, Bullets are Lead" an action packed Love day story. But have to shove that too till I finish with Marvel. Who knows, I may just work on them in the future.

“Sir, sorry to point this out, but there are more competent soldiers and agents that can handle this. This definitely is not a job for a bounty hunter. “
“Marvel, I wouldn’t have come to you with this if not for some new developments that are just now being revealed. “ Leyland seem to sagged back on the chair he was sitting on. “It took a lot of convincing to get the president to approve me seeking for an external help. “
Marvel has known the general a long time, served under him and trusted him. He has seen General Leyland handle overwhelming odds with nothing but a cute smile and an unflinching bark of orders, but what he can see from the general’s face now looks like fear. What could be so bad as to scare him, definitely not the simple kidnapping of a senator or an empty threat from a rag tag group.
“What is it general? “ Marvel asked already dreading the reply from the him.
“Earth government security have been badly compromised. “ As the general paused, he pulled out a glass cup and a bottle of amber colored spirit drink. Pouring it a fourth of the cup’s length, he drank down deep and poured another shot into the cup. “This is not just an arm or sectional infiltration, this is way to the top, among the twenty men that makes up the security committee. None of these men can be investigated, because they have the highest level of security clearance, even higher than mine. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 11:42am On Feb 14, 2018|
Marvel took time to digest the import of the general’s statement. “Sir is such a thing even possible? “
“No, it’s not but unfortunately it is happening. “ After drinking the second fill from the cup, he kept both it and the bottle off screen. “This wouldn’t have been revealed if not for the fracas we are presently having with some very powerful and influential mega corporations. Who ever is responsible for the security breach is definitely in league with these corporations. Well that is what our present available Intel suggests. “
“So this is in a way involved in the senator’s kidnapping? “
“Yes. The senator’s visit to that planet was an undercover act meant to pass important Intel necessary to continue investigation on the corporations indicted from the events of last time. It was such a secret move that only the top level security officers were aware of it. Yet the senator was kidnapped and the Intel didn’t get to him. “
“I get that. “ Marvel said thinking fast. “Well it could all have bewn a coincidence, these people already have a grudge with the senator and maybe he got to the wrong place at the wrong time. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 11:44am On Feb 14, 2018|
“We considered that, it was our initial position until I got a secret classified message from an agent who was on an undercover assignment on the planet the senator was captured in. “ Leyland close his eyes recalling in his mind the contents of that report. “That message changed all my perception and in a way revealed the lacuna in our security setup. “
Marvel noticed the way the general emphasized on the word undercover agent as if it is something he should pay attention to. “Am I cleared to know about that? “
“No, but I’d have to tell you anyway, since you will be working on this and like you know, I always believe in giving those under my command full information, it helps them perform optimally. “ With a deep sigh, Leyland adjusted his position on the chair before continuing. “You will need to know about something called the Afterlife. “
“Sounds like a theme from an urban legend, rumors of secret projects the government is involved in that doesn’t really exists. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 11:48am On Feb 14, 2018|
“The Afterlife is real and a highly classified project, that was tightly guarded whose existence is known only to the twenty men of the security committee. It’s a prison of condemned criminals who are already written off as dead. It’s location and security setup is unknown to anyone outside the security committee. Someone went in there, who appeared to have all the secrets of the Afterlife available to him, broke some prisoners out of that place. “
After about two minutes of neither of them saying anything, Marvel asked. “Is this linked in anyway to the kidnapping? “
“Yes, our Intel reveals that those that kidnapped the senator were ex inmates of the Afterlife. Besides that we analyzed the voice of the speaker in that holo vid, it matched with one of the ex inmate with the name Red Mane . You know him? “ The general gave Marvel a quizzical look through the holo vid.
“A big brute with red hairs all over and a face like a lion? “ as Leyland nods in the affirmative, he just shrugged. “Well I think I do. Got a bounty on him for twenty five grand. Caught him and he was sent to the slammer. Thought he died trying to escape a particular super max security prison. “
“He didn’t die. Was caught trying to escape, he was sent to the Afterlife, anyway he was already on death row. The story of his death while escaping was released to cover his disappearance . “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Damibiz(m): 1:05pm On Feb 14, 2018|
After life rockz.....those escaped inmatez most be bad ash niggaz before....nice work....what of the bounty placed on Marvel na ?
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Godwinfury(m): 1:37pm On Feb 14, 2018|
Damibiz:You know the worst part? Marvel actually played a part in putting them in there...
Ever watched "Hancock"? then u will know what I mean.
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Damibiz(m): 2:55pm On Feb 14, 2018|
Double wahala for living body....................Marvel is in for a lng thing.......
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:23pm On Feb 15, 2018|
“That brute was a mean soul, it was very difficult to subdue him. Never wished to meet someone like him again. “ Marvel face darkened as he recalled this old forgotten memory. “And now in other to rescue the senator, I have to face him again, that’s grand. Sir you have ways of bringing real interesting parties to me. “
“I’m sorry son, wish I could have it any other way. “
That’s one thing that had endeared those under the general’s command to him, he means whatever he says. Marvel knew if the general can, he could spare him as much mischief as possible.
“Ok sir, I’d take the job. But this time, my fee is double. “
“Double Marvel? “
“Yes sir, I get to perform a rescue operation and recapture a dangerous fugitive. And I won’t be going alone. So it’s fair I ask for double. “
|Re: Marvel Chronicles 2 :executive Sanction by Apollux(m): 3:28pm On Feb 15, 2018|
“Alright son, I’d take it up with command. “ With clenched teeth, Leyland said that already knowing the amount of argument he had to go through to justify the payment. He is sure the senate will come to his rescue on this, especially if Marvel is successful. “So who do you plan taking with you? “
“The Mole. He is the only one available right now.”
“What about the cyborg? “
“He is busy at this time with Dr. Guthrie going through some modifications I believe.“ What Marvel didn’t say is that, the cyborg have been busy helping him set up his new place of operations. “Besides that, the cyborg is basically Dr. Bryant underneath, he is really not a soldier or fighter but a scientist. “
“Alright. Ahem I got another favor to ask of you Marvel. “
“What would that be? “
“I will really need the services of your associate called Hardwire. “ After waiting for a while to see if the bounty hunter will Object. When he didn’t, Leyland continued. “At the Trans Terra International tower, our operatives on ground there have been trying to crack a huge data terminal we believe will contain valuable data we can use to persecute the corporations under investigation. We have succeeded in breaking into the heavily sealed room where the terminal is but it now appeared that the data is heavily guarded with super secured encryption. All our efforts to break it has failed. The corporations method of programming is different from what we are used to. Hardwire seem to have been successful in the past in been able to hack corporate programs. “
“As you know, he is on earth at this time. I will get across to him and tell him to expect you. “
“Thank you. I will arrange speedy transportation for him. “
“General any idea where the senator is kept?”
“As far as I can tell, those who captured them haven’t left that planet, so it’s a safe bet they are still hold up there. Our agents on ground are looking for the place. I’m confident they would have come up with a location before you get there. You will be contacted by one of our undercover agent when you arrive planet side. “
There is that tone again as the general mentioned undercover agent. “Who is the contact?” Marvel asked.
“I believe you have met her, Special agent Jade. “
Damn, Marvel thought sadly.

✳ ✳ ✳ ✳ ✳
Doeb was a fool, Dalmar thought without feeling much of anything as the signal that the surgically implanted explosive in his skull has exploded. Well he actually really served his purpose. Dalmar was still in his private quarters in the super cruiser still traversing the space lanes.
Dalmar had long suspected that an important undercover agent is hidden in Puerta del Cielo which was on a special assignment investigating a gun running ring attached to a corporation. Try as he may, Dalmar couldn’t get the identity of the agent. So he had decided to use a tool already on ground there to lure that agent out. With the kidnapping, he decided to give out some sensitive information to Doeb, unbeknownst to him, he added a micro explosive in his head without letting him know, at least to protect his benefactor on earth. Dalmar was hoping that dangling Doeb as a bait may expose the undercover agent and drag Marvel into the trap he planned for him. With the sudden death of Doeb, he hopes it will intrigue the Earthwatch and CSC command enough to investigate. If things work as he hopes, Marvel will be sent. That will focus their attention on Puerta del Cielo, while his real attack will be the Trans Terra International tower in Nuterra.
His holo vid suddenly came on with the multi colors of the security layers and filters on the call connection. As the screen cleared, Cedric face came up on it.
“Sir, the operatives and materials for the tower job have arrived Nuterra and are ready to move. “
“Excellent work you did on the propaganda holo vid, heard it achieved the required impact. “ Dalmar said as if he didn’t hear what Cedric said. “Make the move when the deadline given in the holo vid is up, I believe something interesting will be happening around that time on Puerta del Cielo. “
“Yes sir. “
“We need to be precise and make sure everything works well. “ He wished he would be there, in case Marvel was called and see his reaction when he falls into the trap . Dalmar already has a surprise waiting for him there.
