In the corridor-

 

From behind the group, Eddie and Cyphershot spots a shadowy human shape, a man, dressed in cloack and hood. How he managed to sneak around the group in such a tight corridor is amazing, but nonetheless, his stealth was not perfect and the noise he made stepping on glass alerts the group. Now, facing them in the rear, the mysterious kngiht stands, cape flowing from the light ventilator breeze, both powered fists held up, its edges glowing with a humming power.

 

Meanwhile, the front of the group, Cricket and Pulse, find themselves confronting two sets of lights down the darkenned tunnel. Glowing in the dark, two piercing red globes appear like eyes in the darkness. The sound of metallic stomping draws nearer, as does that of whirring gears.

 

Phantom-

 

"Where the hell are y-" 001 whines but never finished as the Phantom drifts away. Following the robots, he finds himself facing a dark corner at the end of a hallway. A large security robot disappears around the corner, and there is the sound of whirring clicks like that of chainguns loading...

Eddie lowers the power in his fists to about 1/8, so as not to collapse the entire cave, and charges the knight, striking with a left jab/left jab/right cross combo. "Take your shots when ya can, lady," he calls to Cyphershot. "Don't worry 'bout hurtin' me!"

Eddie and Cyphershot-

 

Eddie charges the dark knight as Cyphershot fires her arrow. The tracking projectile weaves and swerves, sliding gracefully pass underneath the hulking man's elbow before striking its target. The arrow nails the knight in the chest, bouncing off his chest but nonetheless knocking off his balance.

 

By the time he recovers, Eddie is upon him, swinging at him with several attacks. Despite the fact that the large man caught him off guard, the knight is still able to dodge the first attack, but the second hits as the knight pulls his gauntlet in a blocking stance and absorbs the powered hit through his fist. Yet, even as it was enough to shatter his arm, the knight only grunts as the blow is absorbed by his gauntlet, but nonetheless, he is pushed him back a step or two.

 

This time, he attacks Eddie with a flurry of quick yet strong blows, landing two good kicks to Eddie's chest (neither very painful nor harmless), and a right hook with his powerfist that hits Eddie across the jaw. A green glow flashes from the gauntlet as the fist makes contact, knocking saliva out from Eddie's mouth out and giving him a major numb in the region where he was hit.

 

Pulse and Cricket-

 

Meanwhile, the two front heroes are confronted with an approaching pair of glowing red eyes. Suddenly, the corridor lights up in flashes as the leading orb turns green and suddenly a chaingun begins its whirling torrent of bullets. Loud blasts ring down the entire corridor, defeaning the sound of fighting, but nonetheless, Cricket and Pulse are able to take cover behind the cover of a projecting archway. Behind them, Cyphershot dodges the bullets as she too is able to find cover, while the rest start bouncing harmlessly off of Eddie's back (althought severely tearing his clothes), as he is fighting with the knight.

 

Pulse, taking the iniative, unleashes his energy at the leading security bot. The corruscating bolt flashes wildly and hits the bot in the chest. The chaingun is silenced, but the hallway lights up in a blue glow as you observe the entire security bot's body suddenly zapping in a blue electric sillouethe as the bolt goes through it and spreads to its every circuits and wires. Several circuits blow before finally the bot, after several spasm, explodes. The head flies two feet down the corridor and rolls until it settles at Cricket's feet, a large bladed face with a dimmed and cracked cyclopean orb-like eye.

 

With its partner unit now dead, the second security robot raises its tazer unit instead and charges. Cricket takes two shots at it, causing litle damamge as they bounced off its chest plate. However, the robot's momentum gives its swingin arm a powerful force that, when it hits Cricket, knocks him to the ground while also shocking him painfully. He is able to get back on his feet, only to find he is staring down the barrel(s) of a arm-mounted chain-gun.

 

Phantom-

 

While all this excitement is happening, Phantom is only able to hear the sound of the chainguns, the rigns of richoetting bullets, and, suddenly, an explosion that rocks the corridor and sends some fallen ceiling pepples tumbling down in dusty puffs. Staring around the corner, he sees the fight between a silver-armored man and one of the security robot.

 

Behind him, Phantom hears the sound of clanking and turns around to see another security robot. It stops in its track and, after a bit, its red eye turns green.

 

"Alright, what is this... everyone gets to have fun and leaves me alone in the corridor, are they? Leave this old [machine] standing like some [program that initiates update systems], will they?"

 

Suddenly, its arm flashes up, its gun whirling with a psychotic grind.

 

"I WILL VENTILATE THOSE MEATBAG CARBON SUCKERS, I WILL!."

 

The robot starts stomping towards Phantom.

"What tha....." Eddie says as he shakes his head to clear the cobwebs. "Ok, if that's tha game then, I'll play!" He powers his fists back up, going all the way to 1/3 full strength, and wades in again, this time keeping his guard up and going body/body/uppercut.

"Sorry for leaving you behind, but I am worried abou..."

 

The Phantom curses silently under his breath as he realizes #1 just went psychotic again. Grateful he is already phased, he hovers in the hallway and tries to get the 'bots attention.

 

"Hey! Remember! Friend! Carbon Meat Bag is invited guest! You keep acting this way and I'm going to start thinking you really are some remotely operated toy! Stand your clanky backside down and help me stop them before this whole place goes to hell in a handbasket and we all get ventilated!"

 

Not fearing the bullets, the Phantom flies down the hallway at top speed, trying to reach the melee before things get totally out of control, wary of the tazer on the left hand of the security 'bots.

Reacting before the bot can fire on Cricket, Pulse grabs for the tazer and is suddenly shocked, the electricity absorbed into his body, giving him a tinkling feeling as hairs on his body start to raise from the currents. As quickly as he had grabbed onto the tazer, Pulse clutches the chaingun and routes the charge. The charges go back and forth, making a cycle between robot and superhero before finally, the security bot's circuits starts to melt and pop at places until an explosion sends Pulse and Cricket flying back. When they recover, they see the second security bot laying slumped against a wall, twitching, both its arms disintegrated, leaving only burn sockets full of scorched wires and melted steel. It twitches occasionally, unable to move, its eyeball flashing from red to green.

 

Meanwhile, Eddie continues his attack. An arrow from Cyphershot whistles as it flies past his ear, but the knight dodges in time, the arrow clattering on the ground a few distance away. However, this mild distraction gave Eddie enough of an edge as he manages to land all of his blows. The first knocks away the gauntlet, the second lands again on the gauntlet, this time producing a steel crack. The knight's left gauntlet suddenly sparks, its glowing aura suddenly gone. As the knight looks up, Eddie's uppercut hits him under the jaw, sending him flying down the corridor, hitting the ground hard and slidding a few steps. Eddie and Cyphershot hear him groan as he struggles back, clutching his head, but before long, he had amazingly shaken off Eddie's superpowered blow, and was back on his feet, this time, a new stance, left gauntlet down, right gauntlet up, legs apart, ready to jump.

 

"Truly impressive." Only Eddie hears him say, a hoarse, muffled but nonetheless human voice, as if speaking through a voice box.

 

As Phantom rushes down the hall, he finds himself too late, arriving to see a dead security robot and an immobilized one laying propped against a wall. Nonetheless, behind him, he heards the stomp of 001 and turns to see it had smashed its gunked tazer unit, damaging a prong but nonetheless freeing it. Its chaingun is held level and is spinning like a metal whirlwind.

 

"Which one of you needs [neutralization protocol]?" an amplified robotic voice says, echoing down so that even Eddie hears it.

"Truly impressive."

 

What tha hell? Is there a person inside that thing? Eddie is shocked to hear a human sounding voice coming out of a big death robot.

 

"No, buckethead, what's really impressive is that I ain't even fightin' ya at full strength yet. But, if ya wanna find out what that feels like, then come on. I'll get there eventually. If not, then stop attackin' us an' tell us which way the old man went, an' call off the dogs on our buddies." If they are buddies....

 

He stands ready for the thing's jump, feet shoulder width apart, legs slightly bent, fists powered down.

"Old? Buckethead? You have some nerve, boy." the knight says in response, with a chuckle. (Think Darth Vader for the voice)

 

He remains, however, in his stance. His boots, Eddie notices, suddenly begins to glow.

 

"Why don't you try that again? I dare ya."

 

 

Just for clarification, two robots are dead. Unit 001 is another robot down the corridor where the two other security bots came from. From behind, the dark fighter is confronting Cyphershot and Eddie

"Oh, don't tell me there's more of 'em." Cricket says with just a touch of dismay. He looks at Pulse, "Thanks for the save, you ready for more?"

 

Re takes a firing stance with his pistol pointed in the direction of the voice.
