TEEN TITANS AND FREEDOM FIGHTER: GO!
CHAPTER ONE: CROSSING THE BARRIER, PART I
Jump City…at first sight a normal little city. Not among the scales of Gotham and Metropolis, and the organized crime is vastly minimal here. Jump City didn’t seem like that bad a place. However, you still have to take the gimmicked villains into account. There are plently of those in the city all right. One of them had just assembled his own group to assist him.
“I would like to thank all of you for aiding me in my endeavors to return to my own time. Once the portal is complete, I will give you all secrets and technology from the future which will allow you to become kings of your time.” The leader of this gang said. He was a man in clock-based armor. His name was Emil Lasalle, also known as Warp.
He was joined by four other villains. One is the anglophilic Neil Richards, aka Mad Mod, the geeky Burt Weston, aka Control Freak, Kenny Thompson aka the magician Mumbo and the mech suit wearing A. Donald Ipkiss, aka Adonis.
“Making sure the entire world will worship the Queen!” Mad Mod said excited.
“All the movies and games from the future…” Control Freak practically drooled.
“Centuries worth of magic…” Mumbo said with a twinkle in his eyes.
“…futuristic tech for my suit, and special steroids for my pecks!” the egotistical Adonis said, flexing his false robotic muscles.
“Yes, yes, you’ll all get your reward. But for me it will be good to just get home after spending years in this primitive era. Then I can recommence my thefts across the timestream without any interruptions of any of those wretched Teen Titans!” Warp groaned.
“Dude, you know when you say that, you jinx it?” Control Freak suggested. The others looked at him awkwardly. “I mean it, watch like every cartoon or movie ever made, every time they say that, it gets jinxed. The Titans may be on to us!”
“I think all of that pulp fiction you occupy yourself with on a daily basis is rotting the few braincells you have!” Mad Mod said as he twirled a finger around the side of his head.
However, as if on cue, the wall of their hideout was blown off, and from the smoke five young teens arose, yet they didn’t look like normal teens. One of them had black spiky hair, a black dominio mask, a red, green and yellow traffic light-like outfit with an R symbol, a short cape and steel tipped boots, with a utility belt. He was Robin, leader of the Teen Titans.
Next to him was a female that appeared human, but her orange skin, purple garb with armored silver parts, and green eyes showed she was alien. That and she floated several feet off the ground. She was Starfire.
Then there was a huge bulky african-American boy with cybernetic parts covering about eighty percents of his body. He was Cyborg.
Then there was the second female of the team. She had grey skin, purple eyes and hair, as well as a dark blue leotard, cloak and shoes. She was also floating in the air. She was the sorceress Raven.
Finally there was a teenage boy in a purple and black outfit with grey gloves and shoes, as well as green skin, hair and eyes, as well as small fang potruding from his mouth. He was Beast Boy.
“Warp, the only time and place you are going, is jail, in the present! Until the Legion of Superheroes can come from the future and bring you back on less time-breaking terms!” Robin said. “Same for the rest of you.”
“What did I tell you! We jinxed it!” Control Freak said. He was bopped on his head by Mad Mod’s cane. “Ow!”
“No…I am nearly done, I will not allow any interference at this crucial point. Crush them!” Warp said.
“With pleasure!” Adonis said as he smacked his fist in his own palm. “It took the five of them to take each of us out individually, no way they can take on the five of us.”
“You seem to have forgotten something…we have come a long way since our early days, so you are in for a big butt-kicking.” Cyborg said back.
“Enough talk, it’s your final show Titans. And for our next trick, we’ll all make you dissapear, forever!” Mumbo said as his wand flared.
“Can we cut the prattle? We have better things to do.” Raven noted dully.
“The only thing we seem to agree on, witch!” Warp said as he prepared himself. “Now, my newly formed Tartarus…get them!”
“Teen Titans! Go!” Robin said as both groups charged at each other and were ready to fight. Starfire rushed at Warp, having a beef with him. Cyborg chose Adonis for a foe. Control Freak headed for his ‘arch-nemesis’ Beast Boy, the magic users Raven and Mumbo would take on one another and that left Robin with the now-youthful Mad Mod.
But Jump City was not the only place where things were going down. There was another place…in fact a whole other world. This world was called Mobius. And on this world, there were different kind of heroes fighting a different kind of enemy.
A small army or robots were advancing on these particular heroes. These robots were tall, humanoids, dark, with dome-shaped heads and a single red optic. These were Swatbots. And a group was currently firing their blasters in the direction of one of the heroes. But that particular hero avoided the attacks at superspeed. As a blue blur, this particular hero zig-zagged rapidly between the shots before he jumped up, curled himself up in ball, and dove into the group of robots, scrapping them.
The hero stood up, revealing himself…as a blue humanoid hedgehog. He had peach skin, blue fur and quills, green eyes, white gloves, and red shoes with white stripes and golden buckles. This was Sonic the Hedgehog. “You know, for a genius Buttnik doesn’t make the brightest of minions.”
Another group of Swatbots advanced on the blue hero, but then something swooped down and knocked them over. It was a young humanoid fox with blue eyes and yellow fur, except for his chest and snout, where it was white, and the most notable trait: he had two tails…and used them to fly like helicopter blades. And he then used those same appendages to cut several of them in half. “It’s either mass production or quality with low numbers. I guess he chose the former.”
There were now several Swatbots coming in wielding staffs with tasers at the end. But they were then knocked over when a bo staff hit them. It was wielded by a female Mobian chipmunk, with red hair, blue eyes, and brown fur. She wore a blue vest and boots. She displayed several advanced martial arts and skills with a bo-staff, which she used to knock the Swatbots down. “We got no time to waste on them, we need to get to the power core of this station.”
“Then we’ll blast our way through!” another female voice said as the owner of the voice fired at another horde of Swatbots and blew them apart. The voice and weapon belonged to a female rabbit, with cream fure, green eyes, a brown jacket and stetson hat, and a pink leotard. Her left arm and legs were robotic. This cyborg rabbit was aptly named Bunnie Rabbot.
“I suggest a less energy and time consuming approach!” another female voice sounded. There was a pulse of green energy, and all the nearby Swatbots’ systems shut down. It was the courtesy of what appeared to be a female lynx with brown fur, black hands and feet, black markings on her face, green eyes and black hair with beads in it, as well as a purple dress. She blew her finger like a gunslinger would a gun after firing it.
“My new body works better then expected.” This was Nicole, and despite appearing organic, she’s actually an AI now inhabiting a life-like body. “The field test has been passed. But to shut down the power core, I’ll need to get in closer to hack.” She noted her teammates.
“We’re almost there, but first a status check…” Sally noted as she pulled out the communicator. “Antoine, Rotor, how are you holding up out there?”
Outside the flying station, two airshops were in a dogfight with several enemy airshops, and holding up rather nicely. “Nothing to worry princess, they are no match for our flying skills. Robotnik can’t seem to find good help these days.” Rotor the walrus answered over the communicator.
“Just shut that Death Egg down, we can handle the rest.” Antoine D’Coolette replied.
“All right then…let’s move, Freedom Fighters!” Sally said as she and her teammates. They went deeper at the center of the station, apparently called the Death Egg, until they came close to the Power core. Inside the Power Core a blue gem was put at its core.
“There is the Emerald…” Sonic stated as he readied himself. “It seems it’s ripe for picking…”
“But with Robotnik it’s never that easy.” Tails reminded Sonic.
“You are correct!” a deep gravelly voice sounded. Out of the shadows came the arch-nemesis of the Freedom Fighters, the evil tyrant who has conquered a majority of thier planet and has been a thorn in their eyes. A tall human who appears to be fat at first sight, egg-shaped in fact but a closer look would reveal those to be bulk, not fat. He had black eyes with red pupils, a big red mustache, and metal plating instead of ears. He wore a red militaristic looking uniform with golden accents and had a regal looking cape to top the evil overlord look off.
“We are not surprised eggbelly. You used all the tricks in the books already. We cracked open several of your Death Eggs before, we can crack this one open as well.” Sonic said.
“This is no Death Egg. No, it is a new kind of station, one of a kind. I call it the Interdimensional Vanguard for Obliteration. I will be able to warp time and space alike. Instead of being a planet-scale roboticizer, I now am going to warp reality so I am the ruler of Mobius from day one!” Robotnik said.
“The I.V.O.? Talk about an ego, you name dit after yourself. You should call this station the E.G.O. The acronym I’m still working on but it should represent how big your ego is, you need a freakin’ space station to fit it in somewhere.” Sonic taunted.
“Taunt all you want, this time you’ll not stop me.” Robotnik growled.
“I dunno, with one Emerald you cannot just chance reality, reality are not legobricks you can simply break and rearrange.” Tails noted.
“While that may be true, I am going about this differently. I only need to create a ripple. Sonic creates a sonic boom by breaking the sound barrier, I just create a time-and-space boom with one, well-placed, precise shot.” Robotnik noted.
“Like that’s going to happen. We already infiltrated your new I.V.O. no different form any previous base, we are going to stop you, right here, right now and finally will make you face justice for your crimes against the world.” Nicole said.
“I see you finally came out of your computer-like shell, Nicole…after I put your mind in it to begin with.” Robotnik mocked. “But you won’t be able to go near the core to hack it. I will stand in your way.” Robotnik said as he snapped his fingers.
The floor opened up behind him, from which a platform rose on which stood four other figures, and a giant mech that was currently unpiloted. The first figure was human-like, like Robotnik himself. But he was much shorter, as short as the Mobians, with a long pointy nose, nearly no hair aside from three miserable long strands of hair, and wore a green version of Robotnik’s outfit. This was Robotnik’s nephew and underling, Snively Robotnik.
There were two robots that had joined the fray. The first robot was big, bulky and blocky. The other was human-sized, but thinner and slimmer, and he had a black round bomb with a fuse for a head, with red optics and a zig-zagged grin. These were Robotnik’s two personal bodyguards and robotic commanders.
Finally was a Mobian female. She had a blood red dress styled like Robotnik’s uniform, and her eyes were blood red as well. She had a white muzzle, orange skin, and grey plating on her head and back, alongside a tail. She has some sort of red dreads with stingers on the end, black fingerless gloves and a kitty tooth was portruding from her mouth. This was Lyra the leech, Robotnik’s bio-engineered grandmaster.
“I have been itching to pound you puny Mobians into dust!” Heavy said as he pounded his fists together.
“I’m painting the town red, or at least the insides of this chamber…” Bomb said as he produced one of his namesakes and tossed it up and down in his hand.
“Oh…my dollies are here to come back to me…and they brought a new kitty dolly with them.” Lyra said as she eyed the female Freedom Fighters with an insane interest in her eyes.
Snively just sighed. He really didn’t want to be here, but his uncle had forced him. Like his uncle he was going to pilot a big mech suit to fight the heroes. “I guess we’ll have to make the hands of this new armor dirty for this occassion.”
“Bots to smash, cool! And I thought you forgot all about my birthday, Buttnik!” Sonic said in his usual cocky confident self.
“Joke while you can, but I’m serious when I say that today, I will finally destroy you meddlesome Freedom Fighters forever!” Robotnik roared.
“No…today is the day we finally take your evil empire down. Freedom Fighters, attack!” Sally said as the Freedom Fighters stormed into battle. Sonic, of course, would deal with Robotnik. Sally headed for Snively, Heavy would battle fellow powerhouse Bunnie, Tails went for Bomb and Nicole would fight Lyra.
At both fronts, everything was at stake, and on both sides, on both worlds, things were going to get heavy.
