Hey what's up everybody! Like the title suggests this is a direct sequel to my X-Men vs. Street Fighter fan fic that can be found here -

http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/x-men-vs-street-fighter-fan-fiction-cuz-we-still-dont-have-a-comic-book-version.7468/
Since this is a very direct sequel that takes place after the events of the previous fic reading that one first is almost mandatory. However, I will briefly go over the events of the previous fic before I start this one while remaining as spoiler free if possible, if you wish to either read the first fic later or just start off with reading this one. Pretty much the same way Marvel does nowadays on the first page of their comic books, they quickly catch you up to speed just in case you haven't read any of the previous issues.

This fan fic has way more characters than just Street Fighters and X-Men so each chapter will have some segments called "Info Bytes" where I help explain a few things, importantly just when the stories take place within the character's comic book and video game storylines. Not everything will fit in perfectly of course as this story falls into a universe that's not really Marvel's world or Street Fighter's world. But it will have lots of elements from both worlds.

Like the last story this fic will use the Japanese characters' names. Master Bison will be called Vega. Akuma will be called Gouki. Charlie will be called Nash.

Usual sano fan fic disclaimer: If you want to read a story about why Blackheart has so many issues with his father Mephisto and gain a deeper understanding of his character, GO READ A BOOK! This story is going to be a non stop BRAWL!

So if you think there's some nutty universe out there where Street Fighters stand a chance fighting against gods like Shuma-Gorath and Blackheart, read on!

Typing the first few chapters now. Hope you enjoy!

    MARVEL SUPER HEROES VS. STREET FIGHTER

    Previously...

    During a confrontation with the Mutant Cable, Apocalypse wound up in the fourth dimension and became invisible unstable molecules floating through our Earth without a physical form.

    By chance he floated to Gouken's dojo at the exact time he was murdered by his brother Gouki. Apocalypse was able to absorb the Ki residue of this battle to help anchor himself to this world. Yet he still was not visible to the naked eye.

    He continued to follow Gouki and was with him when he defeated the Mutant known as Silver Samurai. The Mutant energy and Ki residue from this fight was so great that Apocalypse managed to become visible, yet he was like a ghost and did not have enough power to gain a physical form just yet.

    So he put his plan into motion. In an Aztec Pyramid in the Amazon Rain Forest that was built by his worshippers long ago when he ruled the entire world he began kidnapping Mutants and Martial Artists so he could continue absorbing Mutant Energy and Ki from them.

    Apocalypse soon manipulated the X-Men and other Street Fighters to arrive at the Pyramid and battle, for he gained even more energy when Mutants and Martial Artists fought against each other. The Pyramid was rewired to become a huge conductor sending all of this energy straight to Apocalypse.

    This lead to a series of great fights. During these events, Chun-Li learned that Vega killed her father and both Juggernaut and Killer Bee lost all of their memories.

    Soon Apocalypse had the power to return to our dimension more powerful than ever! Through a combined effort of the X-Men and Street Fighters working together Apocalypse was defeated, and during this fight Nash apparently lost his life.

    Now our story continues...

    Chapter 1: "Four Horses of Four Different Colors!"

    The sky took on a reddish color as the sun was setting one late afternoon on Cape Citadel, a military base in Florida U.S.A. All seemed right with the world until something peculiar occurred. Four cloaked men riding on robotic horses in the sky appeared out of thin air. These horses flew around Cape Citadel like flies circling a light bulb. The mouths of these horses opened up and randomly began firing white energy beams at the military base! Yes, this was a declaration of war by the Four Horseman of Apocalypse!

    Each of the Horseman wore long cloaks that covered their entire body. Even their faces that were exposed by the hoods of these cloaks were covered in shadow. The cloaks themselves had two colors. One was the main color that was present on the majority of the clothing. The second was of all of the ancient heiroglyphics on these cloaks, like the writing you would see inside of an Egyptian Pyramid.

    It wasn't too long before an alarm sounded and the soldiers stationed at Cape Citadel returned fire on their adversaries. The first Horseman to land on the ground inside of the base just before the tall gate that kept trespassers away was the Horseman of Pestilence. His robotic horse was white and his cloak was of the same color, covered in red heiroglyphics. Troops on the ground began firing at Pestilence as he rode his horse in their direction. These soldiers all started dying as soon as he was close enough to them. Pestilence didn't even have to life a finger as one after the other fell to their deaths.

    The second Horseman to touch the ground was Famine. His robotic horse and cloak were yellow and the heiroglyphics on his cloak were black. He road his steed into another wave of soldiers riding gun mounted military jeeps. When he galloped close enough to one of the topless ground vehicles with his right hand he grabbed a soldier on the passenger side with his hand over his face while taking a huge leap with his horse through the air. As this gray hand was over the soldier's face he said, "...No.... the starving... children..." and his entire body started to become thinner by the second! After Famine's leap, when his horse came down on the ground he dropped the unconscious soldier who now had only a thin layer of flesh covering his skeleton.

    The Horseman of War remained in the air. Fighter Jets began to attack this man flying around in a blood red horse with a matching cloak that housed blue hieroglyphics. War evaded gunfire and missile attacks with such ease it seemed like he was toying with the U.S. Armed Forces. He flew straight at an oncoming Fighter Jet and lifted his arms in front of him with his elbows bent at his sides. He fired two light blue columns of energy from his arms and instantly destroyed a Fighter Jet, pilot and all!

    Lastly was their leader, the Horseman of Death and by far the strongest of the four. He rode on a pale green horse with a matching cloak, covered in purple hieroglyphics. Death landed straight down to an area where he was surrounded by 20 Military Tanks. He then took a huge leap off of his horse soaring as high as 50 feet in the air! With his right hand he fired about 100 red fireballs at the Tanks destroying them all!

    It wasn't too long before all of the soldiers at Cape Citadel were murdered and the base was under the control of the mighty Four Horseman who worked for the Mutant known as Apocalypse.

    *******

    Info Bytes: Cape Citadel is a Military Base in Florida that appeared in the very first issue of X-men. Since then it has appeared many times, one of it's more recent appearances was in Uncanny X-Men #394 back in 2001.

    Apocalypse has often gathered four Horseman to do his bidding named 'The Four Horseman of Apocalypse.' Sometimes the identities of the Four Horseman are kept secret in the beginning much like they are here. Well, if you managed to figure out who they please keep the secret to yourselves and don't post it up here! Besides, there will be more cloaked warriors for you to guess who they are so please be patient...

    *******

    Next Up - Starting to type up the next chapter right now so check back in a few hours. We visit the X-Men and Street Fighters and see what they are up to since we've seen them in the last fan fic. Catch ya in a few!

    Chapter 2: "Hadou vs. Cyke-O Power!"

    Several hours later after the incident at Cape Citadel a huge black Aztec Pyramid could be seen at a distance towering high above many trees of the Amazon Rain Forest on a bright and sunny day. From a bird's eye view parts of the jungle just in front of the Pyramid seemed to light up red, white and pink. It seemed like someone was having a fireworks display on the ground as these bright colors coupled with explosions shined through the thick forest, but that wasn't the case at all. This was the aftermath of Cyclops' and Ryu's friendly match!

    "OPTIC BLAST!" "HADOUKEN!" Yelled the two combatants. The red Optic Blast from Cyclops' Ruby Quartz Visor slammed into Ryu's Fireball creating a bright pink light while both attacks cancelled each other out!

    The huge distance between the leader of the X-Men and the champion of the first World Warrior Tournament was cut short very quickly since both of them were incredibly fast on their feet. Ryu struck Cyclops with right and left jabs to his face followed by a kick to the torso but Cyclops managed to block all of these blows with the backs of his right and left hands. Next he quickly tried to strike Ryu with two right and left punches of his own but the Ansatsuken warrior blocked both of these strikes with his forearms while his fists were clenched. This rapid trade off of blows only took one second because both of these fighters were at the top of their game!

    Just after Cyclops' two failed punches he fired and Optic Blast at Ryu's head at this very close distance. Ryu ducked and struck his opponent with his Rising Dragon Punch! "SHORYUKEN!" Cyclops was not about to be undone by this attack. While still in the air along with Ryu after being struck by the mighty uppercut he spun his body around and kicked Ryu in the chest while yelling "CYCLONE KICK!" The two managed to land on their feet, about twenty feet apart.

    Both assumed their fighting stances and were breathing heavily, each with smiles on their faces since they were enjoying this little skirmish.

    "Okay Ryu. Had enough?" "Not yet Cyclops. I'm just getting started!" To anyone watching this fight that would seem like quite an understatement on Ryu's part since the two have been fighting for six hours straight with no clear victor in sight! Yet still the two fatigued fighters continued to pound away!

    Originally Ryu wanted to have this friendly fight a bit deeper into the jungle but eventually with such a long fight where both opponents seemed to move through all wildlife dodging the others' respective projectile attacks they wound up in front of the huge Pyramid. And as you might of guessed, all of the other X-Men and Street Fighters were watching!

    Since this fight was as long as it was there was ample time to bring the X-Men's Blackbird jet nearby and feed rations to the people that were hungry. From the Blackbird they also managed to acquire a floating yellow chair for Professor X. Also from the Blackbird, because most of Wolverine's clothing was burned off during his latest adventure he was given a yellow and blue Outfit typically used by the X-Men while training in the Danger Room. This is also the same outfit worn by Forge during his time with the X-Men.

    Other than Professor X and Wolverine the rest of the X-Men Blue Strike Force Team was watching Ryu and Cyclops fight. This squad consists of Cyclops as the Team leader (who is currently fighting Ryu obviously), Wolverine, Beast, Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee and Psylocke who was holding hands with her boyfriend, the X-Men Gold Strike Force member Archangel.

    Speaking of, the rest of the X-Men Gold Strike Force Team was present and accounted for. They are Jean Grey, Colossus, and Bishop. Team Leader Storm had her arms around X-Men Technician Forge. The final member of this team, Iceman was standing close to all of the Shadowloo soldiers and scientists they rounded up. He created ice bands around their waists with their arms on their backs so they couldn't escape, all of them were kneeling on the ground with their eyes closed as if they were sleeping. For all intents and purposes they kind of were sleeping as Professor X had shut most of their minds down with his Mutant Powers, but Iceman put those bands around them as an extra precaution. Iceman used his powers to keep the circular bands cold in the blazing sun. His hands were glowing with his power over ice molecules.

    There was also a handful of Morlocks present, these are Mutants that lived below the streets of New York City away from prying eyes. They were Healer, Tommy, Scaleface, Ape, Artie and Beautiful Dreamer.

    Beside them were the special agents from the Russian Government. The two Mutants Darkstar and Garnoff along with the two humans Vazhin and Zangief.

    Speaking of Zangief there were other Street Fighters present. Ken who had lost the top of his gi during his fight with Sabretooth was standing next to Wolverine, his new found friend. Also on sight were Dan, Sakura, Blanka and Rose.

    Off in the corner on the many long steps leading to the entrance of this Pyramid Guile was sitting there looking down at his feet, sad that his friend Nash apparently passed away. Chun-Li had just met Guile but she knew of him from Nash who she was very close too, so she sat next to him with an arm around his shoulders to comfort him. Chun-Li, wearing her Street Fighter Zero outfit was also sad about discovering that Vega had killed her father. Yet she still managed to yell "GO RYU!" to support her friend.

    After that yell the rest of the Street Fighters except for Guile and Rose started cheering for Ryu while those affiliated with the X-Men were cheering for Cyclops.

    "YEAH RYU SENSEI! YOU CAN DO IT," belted Sakura. "I have to admit. Ryu's pretty good, just not as great as the legendary Dan Hibiki," boasted the man in the pink gi. "Okay, someone's been spending way too much time in the sun," chimed in Ken. "What was that Ken? I still haven't forgotten about our rematch! Next time you're going down!" "...Yeah, next time Dan..." Ken rolled his eyes as he felt that Dan was no match for... just about anybody.

    "Ryu doesn't have a prayer against the boyscout. Slim could even give this ol' Canuckle Head a run for his money," said Wolverine. "Are you kidding me?" Ken strongly disagreed. "Ryu's been training since before he learned how to walk, all he does is train. No way can someone who woke up with powers one day during puberty could even stand a chance." "You mean that someone who's helped save the world more times than I can count?" "First of all, who says you can count? And last time I checked, you couldn't save the world this time without the help of us Street Fighters!" "Heh. Whatever Rookie, my money's still on Cyke," proclaimed Wolverine with a confident grin. "Yeah, well I have more money than you too," smiled Ken. "COME ON RYU!"

    A bit deeper in the Amazon Rain forest Juggernaut holding his helmet in his left hand was lying on the ground. Killer Bee approached him with water in her hands that she obtained from a nearby lake. She knelt down beside the big red giant and poured the water in his mouth. Juggernaut soon opened his eyes and gazed upon the beautiful blonde haired woman with a scar across her left cheek. He sat up on the ground and saw a campfire that had five wooden sticks with impaled fish stuck to the ground close to its flame.

    Killer Bee spoke. "Oh... um... you're awake. You... collapsed a while ago. I... figured you might be thirsty... and maybe... hungry..." Killer Bee grabbed a branch with a roasted fish and handed it to Juggernaut. "Ugh... okay... thanks." He accepted the meal, put his helmet down beside him, sat up and started munching away even though he wasn't particularly hungry.

    Killer bee sat on a rock that was on the other side of the fire. She was staring at this man who was larger than life. "So... um... sir... you kept yelling 'Who am I' before you passed out..." "...Yeah, it's strange... It's like all of my memories are gone. But small fragments and pieces are coming back to me little by little." "That's great! Looks like you're on the road to recovery sir!" "Okay quit the sir stuff. My name is Cain, I remember that much. What's yours?" "Well... you see si... I mean Cain... that's the thing. I too seem to have lost my memory. Only... unlike yourself none of it has come back to me..." Killer Bee seemed very worried that her memory was gone for good.

    "Hmmm. You seem to be able to remember how to survive in the woods. Maybe your memory's gonna come back to you soon." "Um, your think?" She seemed to cheer up a bit when he said that. "I guarantee it so stop fussin.' But for now we gotta call you somethin'... Let's see... Hey now! I remember when I was a little kid we used to have a cat with a streak of hair coming down her face just like you! Her name was Cammy!" "...Caaammy.... I like it! Okay, until my memory comes back you can call me Cammy! By the way, whatever happened to this this cat of yours, do you remember?" "Hmmm... vaguely... um.... UH OH...."

    Suddenly Juggernaut remembered exactly what happened to Cammy the cat. When he was a child he took four M-80 firecrackers otherwise known as blockbusters, lit them, shoved them up her butt and tossed her off of the roof of the building he grew up in that is now known as the X-Mansion!

    Course he didn't exactly relay this newest memory with Killer Bee. "Errr... um... she's still around... she's not as pretty as you though Cammy!" The now renamed Cammy started to blush and she looked down at the fire between them. The young woman in the light blue Shadowloo outfit started to bump her two pointing fingers together like a shy schoolgirl. "Why... thank you... C-C-Cain.... you're quite handsome yourself."

    Back at the Aztec Pyramid from its huge entrance a series of thunderbolts quickly came crashing down at the crowd watching Ryu and Cyclops' fight! As the these bolts of energy struck groups of people quickly started vanishing! Within a quick second nearly everyone was gone!

    Guile was struck with a thunderbolt but Chun-Li sitting next to him was fast enough to front flip out of danger while yelling "GUILE!"

    A thunderbolt was raining down where Wolverine, Ken, Dan and Sakura were standing. Red flames began to encircle Ken's fist. "SHORYUKEN," he screamed as he struck this bolt of white electricity! The impact blasted these four away to safety, but Blanka and Rose who were also close by were not as lucky.

    Two thunderbolts were on their way to both Ryu and Cyclops, but they quickly blasted them away with their respective "HADOUKEN" and "OPTIC BLAST" attacks!

    These thunderbolts also stretched far into the jungle. Two of them managed to zap both Cammy and Juggernaut making them vanish along with Juggernaut's helmet that was resting on the ground.

    Another thunderbolt struck Sabretooth who was clawing his way through the jungle with his unconscious assistant Birdy over his shoulder.

    Lastly, from tall blades of grass was a hand burned beyond recognition, rising up as if to grab something. A thunderbolt struck this hand attached to it's rotting body and this person disappeared like all of the others.

    Soon the Aztec Pyramid was covered with white electricity and it vanished off the face of the Earth leaving a huge gapping hole where it once stood!

    Ryu, Cyclops, Chun-Li, Wolverine, Ken, Sakura and Dan were the only ones remaining. Even all of the captured Shadowloo scientists and soldiers were gone. The remaining six seemed to huddle together while not taking their eyes off of the spot where the Pyramid stood. No one was able to utter a single word.

    The sound of a Black Tomahawk Helicopter broke the silence. Once it was a five feet off of the ground Captain America leapt out from its side. Right behind him was special agent Nick Fury from S.H.I.E.L.D., an eye patch wearing man who smoked a big cigar that he took out of his mouth whenever he spoke. "Well, looks like our super computer was right. Only six people remain, everyone else just got captured by the enemy." "Captain America! Nick Fury! Mind tellin' us what the blazes is going on," demanded Wolverine. "All in due time Logan. Right now we need your help defeating Apocalypse. Please come with us to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Hellicarrier," responded Captain America. "Defeating Apocalypse? But we destroyed him for good a few hours ago!" pondered Cyclops, and Nick Fury was very quick to disagree. "Destroyed him for good? Haven't any of you mooks turned on a radio? Apocalypse is on the verge of taking over the world!"

    *******

    Info Bytes: During the first X-Men vs. Street Fighter fan fic I laid out that the story took place loosely during Chris Claremont and Jim Lee's run on the X-Men in the 90s, which is still kind of true given the looseness of things and how slow time moves in comic books. Still during that story things began to progress so that it obviously took place after Executioner's Song. For now it's advanced just a bit further than that as this tale is taking place during the Fatal Attraction storyline, there will be more information on this when the time comes. The difference here being that in this world Forge still hasn't left the X-Men and joined up with X-Factor just yet.

    For those of you who are unaware of what the yellow and blue training outfit looks like that Wolverine is wearing in this chapter and aren't too familiar with X-Men comic books in the 90s, Morph wore the same exact costume in the 90s X-Men cartoon.

    Street Fighter - With the last fan fic a lot of Street Fighter Zero 2 (AKA Street Fighter Alpha 2) events took place. Here there will be a few Street Fighter Zero 3 events happening. Since both of those games have lots of characters with different scenarios, whoever doesn't show up here chances are there stories can still play out in SFZ2 and SFZ3 for the most part. So for SF this fic takes places sometime between SFZ2(X-Men vs. SF) and SFZ3(MSH vs. SF) with not too much time passing between both stories.

    Captain America - Like all of the Marvelites in this story they are all appearing loosely after the events of Infinity War. He is Steve Rogers and no longer USAgent since USAgent is John Walker now. And Captain America is leading the Avengers but since the Avengers won't appear in this story, imagine any version of the Avengers you wish lol! Except of course for the current version with Wolverine and Spidey on the squad since it's just a skooch to early for that...

    Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. - Didn't really have an ongoing comic book in the 90s and were used randomly during that time with Nick Fury leading, just like I'm doing. That was easy! More info on S.H.I.E.L.D. during the next chapter.

    *******

    Next Up - I have a few things on my plate so I probably won't be able to update until 2007, but I would definitely like to put up the next chapter before I go off on vacation in February. So next time the heroes gather, form an alliance and some more tidbits are revealed. Oh and more mysterious cloaked villains coupled with more terrible writing by yours truly lol! Take care until next time, happy holidays and everyone be safe!

    re:Cammy
    I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE. :looney:

    There will be lots more Sakura in at least 2 upcoming chapters based in New York, and even her 'evil' version will come out to play, that should be fun heh heh!

    Yeah that's my own spin on how she got the name Cammy. In Masahiko Nakahira's Sakura Ganbaru! Manga, Sakura named her after a cat, so this is my comedic take on it. In Studio Udon's comic, Rose gave her the name. In oooold SF2 storylines, Wolfman gave her the name Cammy after seeing a pendant say CAMM and a few random numbers, it's in one of vas's posts, I'll look it up. Ohs well then she appeared in the Zero/Alpha series it seems like her name was always Cammy as Vega(Cape) always called her that, but since I just called her Killer Bee in the last story and had all of her memories erased by Rogue, figured it was a good way to have her renamed for this micro-verse. Plus I get to do another unrequited love crossover romance where nothing happens thing like last time with Dhalsim and Storm ha ha ha! Camm & Jugs will be back in this story much much later. :smile:

    Okay found vasili10's post, it's on the link below. From Gamest SSF2 Wolfman named her Cammy from an old pendant she had when they found her that read "CAMM 740106." Which was likely to inspire Masahiko Nakahira having Sakura name her Cammy and later Studio Udon having Rose name her Cammy.

    Chapter 3: "Clothes Make the X-Man!"

    Barely a word was uttered amongst the group as any attempts of communication would of been drowned out by the loud noise of the Tomahawk's chopper. They were at least informed that their friends were captured and being held hostage to help put some of their minds at rest some what, given the extraordinary circumstances. Soon the Black Tomahawk descended onto the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, a massive aircraft carrier that floated in the sky. Once on deck the crew of Nicholas Fury (called Nick for short), Captain America, Cyclops, Wolverine, Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Sakura and Dan made their way inside this dark gray metallic base of operations. While walking down a vast corridor Nick Fury lead the crew and spoke to everyone in a loud commanding voice with his Cuban Cigar in his hands.

    "To get introductions out the way the name's Nick Fury and I'm the Executive Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division. S.H.I.E.L.D. is an extra-governmental intelligence and security organization dedicated to protecting the entire world from global threats. You may have heard of us, our existence is known to the general public even though most of our missions are covert operations."

    Nick Fury stops in front of a metallic door where he has to input a ten digit code on a small panel next to it so it can slide open. Inside there is a round platform that rises off the floor. This small dark gray room's walls seem to be composed of machinery and circuitry almost as if it was straight out of a science fiction movie. Dan was the last one in the room and the door automatically closed behind them.

    "First things first before I start yapping about why you are here and what is going on, some of you mooks need a good change of clothes." "Um... I will need just a bit of privacy..." "You don't understand, Miss Chun-Li is it," questioned Captain America. "Heh heh! Just Chun-Li is fine." "Chun-Li, this is a highly advanced... thingamabopper... well... I don't know what the technical term is but let's just call it a Costume Changer. Just stand on the platform and think of repairing your torn costumes or coming up with different outfits entirely and the device will read your mind. Through the use of miniature unstable molecules it will create the outfit you are thinking of. Cyclops, Wolverine, you may recall we used a similar device on Battleworld a few years back." "Battleworld," pondered Ryu. "Was that some kind of tournament?" Cyclops responded, "Of sorts... it's complicated. Long story. We have a device like this over at the X-Mansion, well we did before it was totaled... I'll show you how it works."

    And that's exactly what he did. Cyclops stood at the center of the platform and faced the crowd. Soon with just a thought all of the cuts and tears of his outfit were repaired easily. "Wow! That's so cool! You don't even need a sewing machine," said Sakura in excitement. "Wolverine, how about a second demonstration?" "No prob Cyke."

    Wolverine stood on the platform staring at the crowd and imagined himself wearing a black leather jacket, a white tank top, black jeans and black cowboy boots and next thing you know that is what he was wearing.

    "WOLVERINE," yelled Cyclops. "Lemme guess. This is about tights." "Super-Heroes wear costumes! If the X-Men ever want to be perceived as heroes instead of outlaws we have to do the same!" The Canadian Mutant cursed under his breath, imagined his yellow and blue costume that appeared on his body and stepped off. Ken had a good laugh at Wolverine's expense! "HA! HA! HA! Look at the bright side Wolverine. If we're in a group and are attacked by a bunch of snipers, they will try to shoot you first with your bright yellow outfit and you're healing factor can take it! HA! HA! HA!" "Grrr... just get up their rookie. Without the top of your gi you look like a Playgirl Model Reject!" "Touchy, touchy old man!"

    Ken got up on the Costume Changer and soon he was wearing a brand new red gi, much like the one he wears in Street Fighter II The Animated Movie and Street Fighter II V. "Ah, a brand new gi, what do you think? Hmm, on second thought it makes it look like I haven't trained as hard as Ryu. "Seems accurate!" Ryu poked fun at his sparring partner. "Wow, even Ryu's making jokes, the world really must be in danger!" Ken's gi appeared the way it always looks in the Street Fighter Zero games with the sleeves torn off and the pant legs torn at the edges. The pony tailed young man stepped off.

    Dan ran up there since he was very eager to change his outfit because he pissed in his pants during their last run in with Apocalypse! "Okay it's my turn! I think I'll wear something that shows off how strong Dan Hibiki is, the Master of Saikyo Ryu!" With but a thought he was wearing Gouken's outfit, complete with beads around his neck! He folded his arms and had a rather serious look. This pissed off both Ryu and Ken who always saw Dan as quite the buffoon and did not want him dishonoring the memory of their master like that. Ken was the one to act on his feelings and not Ryu. "DAAAN!" In a matter of seconds Ken Masters beat up Dan with about ten punches and kicks. While Dan was lying on the floor Ken imagined Dan with his pink gi on, but at least it was stain free. "Owe.. and you say Wolverine is touchy..." Ken kicked Dan off the platform and he landed on the ground unconscious. Ken stepped down once again.

    Chun-Li saw that Ryu was still a little ticked off and spoke a little louder than usual to get his mind off of things. "Ah... well, my outfit is perfectly fine but I could use a wardrobe change!" The young Interpol Agent got up on the Costume Changer and changed from the Street Fighter Zero outfit she was wearing to her classic Street Fighter II outfit. "Wow, even my bracelets are identical! Ryu, you've gotta try this!" "Huh," said Ryu who managed to crack a small grin. "No thanks Chun-Li. My outfit is fine the way it is." "Yeah, I'm with Ryu Sensei," agreed Sakura who had on her school outfit like always. She tightened up her white headband and proclaimed, "I'm already in my battle uniform!" "Awe, come on guys, this machine is fun," urged Chun-Li one more time.

    Suddenly Chun-Li started humming and she was wearing Rogue's costume, with long straight brown hair and a few white hairs in front of her eyes! She struck a model pose and then repeated the action, this time wearing Storm's costume and her long brown hair turned white! Her last transformation was Psylocke's costume! With long purple hair Chun-Li put both her hands behind her head and lifted her left leg up in the air, a pose models usually perform when stepping out of water. Suffice it to say she was quite a sight for sore eyes. Finally Chun-Li stopped humming and winked at Ryu while asking him, "So, what do you think Ryu?" "Uh... you look very nice Chun-Li... I... think I have a nose bleed..." Ryu pinched his nose to stop the small trickle of blood pouring from his left nostril. Chun-Li closed her eyes and giggled since she enjoyed teasing Ryu this way.

    "Man, you crazy kids are taking forever. Allow your good buddy Ken to help you out!"

    Ken pushed Ryu onto the platform with Chun-Li. He got up there as well, put his arms around the shoulders of Ryu who was to his right and Chun-Li who was to his left while facing the crowd. He closed his eyes and thought for a second. Next thing you know Ryu was wearing a tuxedo and Chun-Li was wearing a wedding dress complete with a bouquet of white flowers in her hands!

    "WHA... KEN," said Ryu and Chun-Li at the same time. "Hey, what's the problem? Just your future Best Man speeding things along! I even made sure you were comfortable Ryu, you're not wearing any shoes or socks! HA! HA! HA! HA!" Ryu looked down to see that he was indeed barefoot!

    Ryu spun around and kicked Ken in the back of his head pushing him a bit forward! Now that he was in front of the pair Chun-Li sent her right leg up kicking him between his legs from behind right in the family jewels! "AAAAH! Cupid... is defeated... again..." Ken held on to his crotch and fell of the platform, he was in pain but he still managed to smile even if there was a tear in his left eye!

    Captain America, Cyclops, Wolverine had a good laugh. but when they stopped laughing Sakura was still at it, her laugh was very loud yet sounded a little uneasy, a bit uncomfortable as if the laugh was forced a bit. She placed her left hand behind her tilted head as she chuckled. "HA! HA! HA! RYU SENSEI! MARRIED! HA! HA! HA...."

    Ryu and Chun-Li looked at each other in these outfits and almost like mirror images the two looked away, blushed a bit, imagined their proper outfits (Ryu with a white gi and white headband and Chun-Li with her Street Fighter II outfit) and stepped off the Costume Changer.

    Nick Fury who didn't find any of this amusing dropped his cigar on the ground and stomped out it's flame much like he was about to rain on their parade. "Uh, darn youngsters these days always wasting time. If you're though playing dress up we've got a world to save!"

    Info Bytes: First off for fans of Marvel Ultimate Alliance or people who are planning on purchasing it down the line the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier is the very first stage in the game just in case if you need an extra visual.

    When Cyclops and Captain America talk about Battleworld they are referring to the planet where the original Secret Wars series took place. A God named the Beyonder pitted heroes and villains on this planet to fight it out for supremacy, which is why Cyclops called it a tournament of sorts. Interestingly enough, the costume device used on Battleworld is how Spider-Man first got the black and white symbiote outfit which would later join with Eddie Brock to form Venom.

    I vaguely recall the X-Men using a similar device for clothing but I can't recall the issue. Still, they have used unstable molecules in the past so it's not such a big stretch. Colossus used to have blue pants in his outfit that would disappear when he armored up due to unstable molecules for one. During the 90s the X-Men's technology was really at its height with the use of Shiar Technology, AKA Alien Technology, along with Forge building all kinds of stuff for them.

    As for S.H.I.E.L.D., they have flying cars so I figure they must have a few cool rooms like this hidden away for just such an occasion! They've also dealt with Alien threats in the past so I figure they must of carved up a lot of Alien Tech and figured out a trick or two.

    Cyclops and Wolverine's argument is a shout out to a similar argument that they will have years later on in Astonishing X-Men #1 written by the great Joss Whedon. For a time, the X-Men did not wear costumes and had on leather outfits like the live action movies. After some time Cyclops demanded that the costumes return for the same reason about Super Heroes wearing tights. Cyke told Wolverine who was against wearing tights, "And quite frankly, all the black leather is making people nervous." LOL! LOL! LOL!

    Chun-Li's final pose with the Psylocke outfit is a shout out to Psylocke's very famous Marvel Illustrated Swimsuit issue pose pin up drawing by Jim Lee. While Chun-Li isn't sitting and not in a bathing suit but wearing Psylocke's outfit, the pose is close to Psylocke's. Check it out and wonder how Psylocke became so popular heh heh heh!

    Lastly, Ryu not wearing shoes or socks is a shout out to Studio Udon's Street Fighter comic where he got dressed up for Ken's wedding rehearsal but forgot to put them on ha ha!

    *******

    Next Up - Sorry for the long delay but I did have been really busy the last few months. This was a fun chapter that I wanted in there to balance out some of the heavier and more serious fighting that's coming up ahead so hope you enjoyed! Next time Nick Fury fills in the crew on their captured friends and Apocalypse's plan to take over the world! Don't worry, it's not as evil as all the crazy stuff Iron Man's been doing in the Civil War comic ha ha! The next chapter should come in within a week or so. Excelsior!

    Progress Report - The next 2 chapters are all written out on paper, but since it's late in the day for me I will get to typing it all up this Friday since I have off because of Good Friday. And if obstacles get in the way I still have the weekend. It's basically Nick Fury explaining the mission to everybody, I intended it to be one chapter but it spilled into two. Oh snap there's a lot of stuff going on lol! It's always funny how you see things in your head and when you write it down it comes out either shorter or longer than you thought it was. Well, after all of this stuff is out of the way I can get into the non stop dragged out really long fights that I like doing so much, so please bear with me. :wgrin:

    Chapter 4: "New New Avengers Reassembled!" Part 1

    Our heroes sat on one side of a large rectangular table that was dark gray like the rest of this War Room in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Sakura, Dan and Wolverine were drinking green tea while Cyclops and Captain America drank coffee. The caffeine was welcomed graciously by this crew since most of them did not sleep much in the last 24 hours.

    The only one that was standing was Nick Fury who had a small remote control in his hands. By pushing a button a holographic display would appear floating above the table for the Street Fighters and Super Heroes to see. The first image Nick displayed was of a TV Broadcast of Apocalypse that aired around the world recently.

    "I AM THE APOCALYPSE! The age of man has come to an end. The time has come for Mutants to rise up against their oppressors! No longer shall you persecute Mutant kind for we are genetically superior to you flatscans in every possible way!"

    After Apocalypse spoke the image shifted to four cities around the world via a four way split screen. New York City of the United States, Moscow of the Soviet Union, Tokyo of Japan and Pisa of Italy. Suddenly, all four cities suffered terrible earthquakes killing hundreds of people in their wake! Buildings fell! Streets opened up to swallow pedestrians and vehicles! Monuments such as The Empire State Building, the Tokyo Tower, the Kremlin and the Leaning Tower of Pisa were all but destroyed!

    The image shifted back to the X-Men villain. "This is but a sample of the power of Apocalypse! I can create an earthquake anywhere on the planet Earth at any given time! Leaders of the world, you have 24 hours to appoint me ruler of the Earth or I shall murder each and every one of you! The weak shall perish and the strong will inherit the Earth. Your choices are a lifetime of servitude under Mutant rule or death. Choose wisely! Apocalypse has spoken! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!" After his laughter Nick turned the hologram projector off.

    As you can imagine everyone was quite stunned by the footage they just witnessed, with the exception of Captain America who was already debriefed. Still, he was quite saddened by the horrible imagery.

    "This footage aired on every TV screen around the world a few hours ago. Those four earthquakes ravaged those cities for about 52 minutes a piece," stated Special Agent Fury. "A few hours ago? That's impossible. Cyclops, Ken, Wolverine, Nash and myself destroyed Apocalypse for good!" "Oh it's possible Ryu. Our enemies tend to return from the grave again and again," said Cyclops. "But... even still. How can he put such a plan in motion shortly after his defeat?" Ken inquired. "You never know. We might of been fightin' a clone and his entire operation in South America could've been a way for him to keep us X-Men busy while he kicked off his master plan. Hard to say with these major villain types," responded Wolverine.

    "I'm not exactly sure which version of Apocalypse is an imposter or if they are both the same person somehow but it seems that having all of you Mutants and Street Fighters so far away was part of his master plan indeed. And just before me and Cap arrived it looks like he took everyone there hostage except for you seven," relayed Nick Fury.

    Another click of the remote displayed four hooded soldiers riding robotic horses.

    "In the meantime, Apocalypse sent his new Horseman of Apocalypse to capture the rest of the Super-Heroes around the world."

    "Wait a second. You mean to tell me these Four Horseman captured all of the Super-Heroes? The Fantastic Four? The Avengers? X-Force? X-Factor? Alpha Flight? Excalibur," questioned Cyclops. After a five second pause, Nick Fury simply repeated, "In the meantime, Apocalypse sent his new Horseman of Apocalypse to capture the rest of the Super-Heroes around the world."

    With another push of a button Nick displayed holograms of portraits for just about every Super Hero in the Marvel Universe! All of the teams mentioned by Cyclops were present including the X-Men captured in South America along with plenty of single Heroes like Daredevil, Elektra, Dr. Strange, Cloak, Dagger, Power Man, Iron Fist, Punisher, Blade along with many many other Earth based Heroes. Missing were the portraits of Spider-Man and Hulk, but still there were over 100 characters present! "The only reason I was not attacked was because I was away on a Top Secret Mission known only to a few. Since I am still an active S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent, they called me right away after the Avengers Mansion was attacked and my team was defeated and captured," said Captain America.

    "That's not all. Several Martial Artists around the world were also kidnapped." Next Nick displayed images of various Street Fighters that have been kidnapped. This included Geki, Retsu, Lee, Eagle, Joe, Birdie, Adon, Guy, Maki, Sodom, Rolento, Karin, Rainbow Mika, Edmond Honda, Fei-Long, Deejay and Thunderhawk. Also present was Haggar and the entire cast of Slam Masters 1 and 2 - Alexai Zalazof, Lucky Colt, Mysterious Budo, Titanic Tim, El Stinger, Sheep the Royal, Missing "IQ" Gomez, Jumbo Flapjack, Astro, Victor Ortega, The Wraith, Rip Saber and Black Widow. And of course there were Street Fighters present that they already knew were captured - Blanka, Guile, Zangief and Rose.

    After seeing Rose's portrait, Ryu remembered something. "The other night, Rose... she told us that there were not that many Street Fighters left (Chapter 3 of the X-Men vs. Street Fighter fic that precedes this one), as if many of them have been captured. But when we arrived at the Pyramid in the Amazon Rain Forest, there were only a handful of fighters present. Perhaps... with her special gifts.. she somehow sensed that there were more Street Fighters held hostage, only taken to a different location?"

    Dan added, "When we were all captured... Apocalypse was absorbing all of our powers to return to the Earthly plain and become stronger. With all of those Heroes and Street Fighters... if he absorbs their powers as well... he just may be strong enough to last five minutes with the great Dan Hibiki! YOSHA!" After this comment, Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Sakura looked away like they didn't know who Dan was...

    *******

    Info Bytes: The S.H.I.E.L.D. War Room in this story is modeled after the debriefing room in my favorite TV Show, La Femme Nikita. Only uses holograms as there is never any paper used on that program by Section One, the secret organization of that show. Also it's a little like the anime Witch Hunter Robin who has a similar room, and I don't know if it's a coincidence or not but that Anime shares some similarities with La Femme Nikita too.

    And hey about the Kremlin, the President shows up in Zangief's SF2 ending so don't say I offed any world leaders lol! Apoc's gotta take down one governmental spot to be taken seriously, ya know? SF2's story is still intact in this world and I'm not really messing with that ha ha! If the Kremlin thing bugs anyone, or any other cities or monuments for whatever reason since none of this is real I have family members that work near the Empire State Building oooh...

    There will be some more info of how the characters got captured in the next chapter that I will work on right after this goes up. By Earth based heroes I mean they didn't capture cosmic people like Silver Surfer, Nova or Adam Warlock who were probably off in space anyway, let's not go crazy now some of those guys are way too strong lol! Over 100 is a good estimate of heroes that were captured, there was prolly a lot more heroes present during the 90s but I figure they caught most of the major / active ones at the time and I didn't want the number to be too high...

    For the SF characters I wanted to stretch the number out a bit even though I could never get to the same amount of characters for SF as I can easily get to with Marvel characters, unless I start naming people from random Capcom games and I don't want to go there... not yet anyway ha ha! So that's why the Slam Masters were tossed in there. At this point, Final Fight 2 and 3 have not occurred yet so I'm basically dealing with after FF1, Sodom and Rolento seem to be the most active after FF1 and they are SF characters too lol! The rest of the Mad Gear Gang seems to random for Apoc to bother with. Maki's in handheld SFZ3 versions so that's why she's there. Cody's in jail right now. Project Justice / Rival Schools characters... I'm still not sure if they and the SF characters exist in the same world (but Morrigan shows up in MVC1, ack...) but I think they would just be dismissed as a bunch of kids and teachers for the most part by Apocalypse... okay I do have Sakura and Karin here though... well I guess I can't win... Sakura's capture in X-Men vs. SF will be explained later and perhaps Karin's won a few local championships to gain her some recognition and stuff I figure. PJ/RS never plays a part in any of the Marvel games... okay neither does Slam Masters but there's at least Guy's connection to SF, who knows Haggar, who was a Slam Master... there is of course the Captain Commando of MVC1 and MVC2's connection to Final Fight also... ack....

    As for SF characters I skipped over, I didn't want Gen to be among the captured because if he is defeated before his match against Gouki it takes the sting out of him. But as far as I'm concerned since I won't deal with Gen at all if you want this to be a world where Gen is an old man that is knocked out by Ryu in SF1 to less complicate things so be it! Lee, even though he 'may' have been murdered by the Chinese Mafia in SF's story for losing SF1, I figure he is still on the run and they haven't found him yet... Ohs well he shows up in the Sakura Ganbaru! manga anyway so at least he shows up somewhere after SF1 (no this story is not connected to Sakura Ganbaru! arg... too many Marvel comics for me to deal with to try to start tying in manga lollerskates!) The Four lords of Shadowloo are with Shadowloo, not exactly kidnapped, more on that in the next chapter and later on in the fic there will be a bit more on that. Ditto for Cammy, Juni, Juli and the Twelve Dolls. OK the 12 were kind of kidnapped but before the events of the fic occurred... I didn't forget about Mike, I just feel that even though Mike and Mike Bison are probably 2 different people that is still one of those things best left to gamers to decide. You know, since I have Maki in here I love Ingrid but I figure she is cosmic like the Marvel characters like Silver Surfer so she's not among the captured. Yun is just too young for Apocalypse to care about. And it's still to soon for SF3 characters to get recognized, or even mentioned here I feel.

    Yeah, Capcom's known for re-releasing SFZ3 and tossing in more characters, but if that happens I can always come back and edit the captured list if I'm hardcore about it ha ha!

    *******

    Next Up: The explanations continue as our heroes set out on their journey to save the world. Gonna start typing right now so check back in a few hours or come back tomorrow!

    Chapter 5: "New New Avengers Reassembled!" Part 2

    Wolverine was having a hard time grasping the situation at hand.

    "This makes no flamin' sense. You tellin' me that these four are powerful enough to capture all of these Heroes and Martial Artists in such a short amount of time?" Nick Fury always ready with an answer informed, "We have no doubt that these are very powerful enemies but that wasn't the only factor. Unlike some of the Martial Artists, many of the capes are New York residents and were captured during the earthquake Apocalypse created in the city. They quickly teleported from area to area taking Heroes down one by one. In other cases like taking down the Avengers they had help."

    After this lengthy response he displayed an image of ten hooded warriors who much like the horseman you couldn't tell who they were. Their hoods were all blue with red hieroglyphics. All of them were about the same height give or take except for one towards the center who looked to be extremely tall and wide. Hunching down in front of them was an eleventh warrior, who seemed to be a large man as well. His cloak was bright red and had several large nine inch spikes randomly sticking out from all sides.

    "These are Apocalypse's Dark Riders, soldiers that do his bidding and also aided in taking down many of the Super-Heroes. You see the one in the Red Cloak? He's been transformed into a Hound, someone who can track down heroes with powers. We have some theories as to who the Four Horseman are and some of these masked warriors but at this point it's still speculation. We believe that some of them may have been brainwashed to follow Apocalypse, but we are not certain of that either."

    "Brainwashed?" Chun-Li thought back to her fight with Rogue when she absorbed Killer Bee's mind and instantly became a servant of Vega. (Goes down in Chapter 8 of my X-Men vs. SF Fic) "Could Shadowloo... still be working with Apocalypse?" The young Interpol agent asked the Special Agent. "While we know that Apocalypse has brainwashed soldiers to follow his orders in the past, him working with members of Shadowloo is a definite possibility."

    Ken blurted out, "Hang on a second, just how do you know all of these people are being held hostage?" "Two reasons. First of all, there's a spy on Apocalypse's side sneaking us Intel. Of course for the Informant to avoid capture, the information S.H.I.E.L.D. receives is limited. Second of all, we know all of this due to D.T.N.Y., a highly advanced computer program that utilizes alien technology we've acquired from the Skrull and Kree races. The egghead scientists under our payroll would spend two weeks explaining it to you but to some things up it can predict the future with a 99.9% accuracy rate."

    "Wait a second, the Skrulls, the Kree, they are real? I thought they were just conspiracy theories! So Aliens exist," questioned Sakura. "....No comment..." responded Fury who for a second forgot there were civilians in the room who didn't know that aliens were in fact real. But at this point it was way too late to convince anyone in the room otherwise. "Wow, Aliens are real that's so freaking cool! Tell us about Area 51! You're secrets safe with me!" Sakura pulled out her little light green camera. "If you have any Alien bodies lying around how 'bout you let me take some pictures for my personal scrap book?"

    Obviously Nick couldn't speak anymore on that subject. "Moving along..."

    "Okay, you're taking the word of E.T.'s personal computer. That's just stupid," Ken interjected. "Well, it did predict that you seven bozos would be the last ones remaining when we arrived at the Amazon Rain Forest." Everyone in the room was a bit stunned except for Captain America and Wolverine who remained skeptical.

    "D.T.N.Y. huh? And what does that stand for bub?" "That information is classified." Logan took a whiff in the air and snarled. He suspected that something was up but he wasn't really sure. Quite some time ago Wolverine was an assassin for S.H.I.E.L.D. and he knew from experience they couldn't always be trusted.

    "D.T.N.Y. has also laid out a plan on how all of you are gonna take down Apocalypse. According to it you guys are the best hope we got. Cyclops, Wolverine, you may recall this machine."

    When they saw the hologram of a the huge metallic cylinder the X-Men recognized it right away. "The Island Smasher! Of course! Magneto used that machine to destroy Varkino in the Soviet Union by causing earthquakes and raising volcanoes in that city! That machine tapped right into the Earth's gravitational pull on the center of the Earth and reshaped the globe by destroying several islands and raising others," remembered Cyclops. "But when Kitty Pryde destroyed the Magnetic Memory Cores of its computer panel by phasing through it she ruined a lifetime of work, data that was next to impossible to replace. How is it that Apocalypse can use this machine?"

    "These new machines are not as strong as that other one Cyclops. For one, we know that this time there are two machines at different points of the globe. And both of these machines are more dependent on being controlled by someone with Magnetic Powers."

    "Magnetic Powers... could it be that Magneto is still alive?" Ryu wanted to know. "Like I said before. Our enemies tend to return from the grave again and again. I suspect Magneto is controlling one machine and my brother Havok's fiance, Polaris is controlling the other one. She must have been brainwashed by Apocalypse to do his bidding," deduced Cyclops.

    Two more holographic images appeared before the group, one of a Black Aztec Pyramid rising from the Earth in the middle of a jungle, another at the center of a city. Soon huge Magnetic semi spheres of energy covered both not unlike Magneto's Force Field. Some time elapses as fighter jets were shown trying to penetrate these Force Fields but it was pointless.

    "These two Pyramids rose in The Savage Land and in Madripoor, we believe that this is where the Island Smashers are located. This ends our presentation so you yahoos follow me."

    In another room they witnessed a black cylinder on the ground with large pink circular lights above it. Also around the room where plenty of scientists wearing white lab coats typing away at their respective computer panels.

    Sakura complained "Another round floor panel? Don't tell me we need more costume changes.."

    "Hey what gives? This is our Teleporter from the X-Mansion! Last time we used it me, Cyke, Gambit, Psylocke and Beast went to Magneto's Avalon Base to take him down a notch. You goin' through our garbage Nick?" "Wolverine, it's all yet another prediction of D.T.N.Y. that you had a machine like this, and we need to follow through with the plan D.T.N.Y. laid out, even if there is only a 43.5% chance of success but that's the best percentage we got."

    Sakura's thoughts were going wild. "First Aliens and now Star Trek Teleporting machines! Wow, what's next - Dinosaurs roaming the Earth?"

    ".....To continue, with this machine we want to teleport two of you into the Aztec Pyramid in The Savage Land, another two into the one in Madripoor. Once inside you're to destroy the computer panels that control the machines inside. Be on your guard. Chances are Horseman and Dark Riders are lying in wait. Scenarios we ran of sending S.H.I.E.L.D. agents through D.T.N.Y. all ended in failure, you're our last and final hope. If you fail the governments of the world are prepared to detonate both bases with Nuclear Missiles and no one wants to start World War III."

    "Also as laid out by D.T.N.Y., these teams of two will be combinations of Super Heroes and Street Fighters."

    "Heroes and Street Fighters all right! Me and Captain America representing the U. S. of A oh yeah! I read all of your comic books growing up Captain, you're the greatest hero in the world and I'd love to work with you," Ken exclaimed with glee. Captain America grinned at Ken's comments because under his civilian guise as Steve Rogers he used to create the Captain America comic books based on his own adventures. Cyclops stepped in, "I think it's best if we keep the same teams we were paired off in the last mission. That means you and Wolverine, Ken." "Darn it, stuck with the old man again." "I'm not exactly doin' a River dance either bub," Logan said with a smile. "What do you say Ryu? Want to team up once again?" "I'd be honored Cyclops!"

    Nick Fury declared "Then it's settled. Ryu and Cyclops will head off to The Savage Land and Captain America with Chun-Li will go to Madripoor." "Eeeh? One eye, are you listening to us? What about all this talk about pairing me up with Wolverine?" "Calm down, rich boy. We have yet a third mission for you two. As a back up plan Apocalypse has taken over Cape Citadel, a Military Base and he now has access to Nuclear weapons. There's also a huge Force field surrounding that area. We're teleporting you two in there to take control of that base. If all else fails and we have to go Nuclear to take the Pyramids out Apocalypse sitting on that much ammo won't make things pretty."

    "What will I be doing," asked Sakura. "There are still two heroes that are missing and we are flying both you and Dan to America to help locate them, when all is said and done we will need their help to free all of the captive hostages once we locate them. Sakura, D.T.N.Y. says you're vital to this mission, but I'm not sending child into harms way. You're to aid locating a Super-Hero and then come right back. All though our sensors are not picking him up, we have it on good authority that he is still alive, somewhere in New York City." "Awe man, grown ups have all the fun. And who am I supposed to look for anyway?" "You may have heard of him. His name is Spider-Man." "SPI, SPI, SPIDER-MAN! No way, he rules! I just have to spar with him one time!" "Spider-Man? Isn't he a criminal," asked Ken. "You believe way too much in what you read in the papers rookie," answered Wolverine. "Yeah Ken! He's a Hero! Haven't you heard his theme song? Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Does whatever a Spider can..."

    "Ahem... as for you Dan, we need help finding another hero. He's called The Hulk. Hulk and S.H.I.E.L.D. have had a few run-ins in the past and we haven't always been on good terms. Perhaps being approached by a civilian might entice him to help us if we need his assistance later on. "Don't worry sir!" saluted Dan. "If Hulk doesn't want to help save the world I will convince him with my bulging biceps!" Dan flexed and yelled, "OYAJIIIIIII!" "Okay, now I KNOW that Hulk is a criminal. I don't think sending Dan after The Hulk is a good idea..." "Not to worry Ken Masters. He's in the phase of what we call... Professor Hulk. He has all of the intelligence of a scientist and all of the brawn of the jolly green giant. He's not a villainous monster that's running around destroying cities anymore. Unfortunately, General Thunderbolt Ross will always try to track him down with a Military Unit and try to destroy him. Let's just say the two have a personal grudge. Hulk just foiled another one of their attempts and is on the move in the Arizona Dessert." "No problem! The power of Saikyo Ryu shall prevail! YA WOO YAHOO!"

    A scientist with a small gun that worked almost like a needle used in a hospital said "This will only hurt for a second." He poked Cyclops in the neck with the device. Since the leader of the X-Men felt no malice emanating from the scientist he didn't move a muscle. Soon he went on to poke the necks of Ryu, Captain America, Wolverine, Ken and Chun-Li.

    "We've upgraded your Teleporter just a bit. You've been injected with a small microchip that in 48 hours will dissolve and turn into healthy nutrients for your body. In the meantime once you've arrived at your destinations and your missions have been completed all you have to do is press down on the injected area and say a specific word to teleport right back here. Any person that you are touching at the time will be teleported along with you."

    Captain America finally spoke, "It was my responsibility to choose the specific word. It had to be something that was quite rare, just in case you were struck in the neck and said word slipped out from someone in the area it might accidentally send you back here and we don't want that." "So what's the magic word, is it pretty please," joked Chun-Li. "No. It's BAMF!" "Cute soldier boy, really cute," commented Wolverine. Captain America let out a chuckle. He knew that each of them were about to depart on dangerous missions and they could use a bit of levity. 'BAMF' is the noise that former X-Men and current leader of Excalibur Nightcrawler makes whenever he uses his Mutant power to teleport. Nightcrawler is also one of Wolverine's best friends and among the captured heroes. Preparations were made as Captain America explained 'BAMF' to the Street Fighters.

    Moments later Captain America, Cyclops, Ryu, Wolverine, Chun-Li and Ken were standing on the circular platform. Sakura took a quick picture of all six standing there. Nick of course grabbed her camera, exposed the roll of film to light and gave it back to her. She sighed for a bit and waved the heroes good bye. Dan gave the group a huge thumbs up as they teleported away. Little did the six heroes know that they were in for the fight of their lives. Even Dan and Sakura were in for quite a bit of a struggle before this adventure was over and done with.


    *******

    Info Bytes: The Blue and Red on the hooded outfits of the Dark Riders are the same colors that the Dark Riders wore in the Apocalypse vs. Dracula limited series that wrapped not too long ago. The outfit is very different though, it was similar to the red and blue outfit Wolverine wore when he was a Horseman of Apocalypse for a brief time.

    The red hooded one with the spikes sticking out, AKA 'The Hound' is a shout out to Rachel Summers. In the future where she is from she was turned into a Hound used to find Mutants, given a tight red leather outfit with spikes. So Apocalypse created his own Hound too.

    And yeah, Apocalypse has brainwashed people in the past. The big one a little prior to this point in time was founding X-Men member Angel who he turned into Archangel and made him into his Horseman of Death. But Apoc working with Shadowloo who may have better methods of doing this isn't out of the question in this story mwahahahaha...

    That bit is true about Captain America actually drawing his own comics in the Marvel Universe ha ha!

    You know, as I was doing my Marvel Research I found it kind of funny how in the 80s and 90s they never seemed to actually name machines in comics. The 'Costume Changer' in Secret Wars never got a name and neither did the other devices in comics I'm using, just found that to be amusing.

    The first piece of machinery, the Island Smasher was never actually called that, I figured that it would be a name that the X-Men would log it under in their files to give it a name. I thought of Island Raiser as it did raise the Island that Magneto turned into a base, but Smasher sounded more threatening to me lol! Kitty Pryde finished off the machine just like Cyclops said. Magneto used this device to destroy Varkino in Uncanny X-Men issue #150. It's also the same story where he sinks the Russian Leningrad Submarine which was referenced in the X-Men vs. Street Fighter fan fic. This is one of the greatest X-Men versus Magneto stories ever written by Chris Claremont and drawn by Dave Cockrum, Josef Rubenstein and Bob Wiack way back in 1981. RIP Dave Cockrum thanks for all the great memories! I made sure to give your favorite X-Men character a nod in this story Nightcrawler at least. ^_^

    The second piece of machinery, the Teleporter, also not given a name was used by the X-Men in issue #25 back in 1994 as part of the Fatal Attractions storyline. To clear something up, in that story the six who teleported to Avalon were not the people that Wolverine mentioned in the fic. In that story it was Wolverine, Gambit, Jean Grey, Professor X, Quicksilver and Rogue. The team I mentioned was only of five, Cyclops, Wolverine, Gambit, Psylocke and Beast are the team that used the teleporter in the Capcom side scroller video game X-Men Mutant Apocalypse. Well OF COURSE the other X-Men video game by Capcom has to tie into this one lol! So essentially, X-Men #1-3 by Claremont and Jim Lee still occur where they fight Magneto on Asteroid M there (The X-Men Children of the Atom video game ending is covered here heh heh) and in this world there is a separate story where these five teleport to Magneto's base later and prior to X-Men vs. SF. Actually, Capcom's side scroller game was a combo of X-Men 1-3 and the Fatal Attractions story, so this works out well. Plus, there are a few other reasons why I made this switch to the Capcom version but I can't go into all of that yet....

    Just to point out, Sakura can reference Star Trek as a TV show because that Star Trek and X-Men crossover comic never happened, in any reality, ever... work with me here lol!

    Spider-Man's name was dropped so he fits loosely at the very beginning of Maximum Carnage and / or moments prior, more details on that when he has a physical appearance. During this time he is married to Mary Jane. Also at this point in time there are clones of his birth parents running around and he thinks they are his parents come back to life but I'm not gonna mention that in the story ha ha ha!

    Since Hulk's name was mentioned, when exactly does he fit... it's kind of an amalgam of a few things. It's kind of like if the 90s cartoon advanced a bit just to the point in the comics where he's Professor Hulk. He's Hulk 24/7 during this time. His role very loosely falls right about the time he was a member of the Pantheon, but the Pantheon is way too complex to get into this story so it won't be mentioned in the actual story. I'm, not too sure if Ross was um... dead or alive at this time but I figure him going after the Hulk is pretty common and known by just about by everybody, referenced in all cartoons and his live action movie. Which brings us to Betty... I'm gonna have to read some more comics around this point in his life to figure out if they were married and / or separated at this time. Hey you know, I love ya Peter David but he really put Hulk through a lot of changes during the 90s making it difficult to actually place stuff and figure out when things happen when you are missing a whole bunch of issues in your runs... to the comic book back bins Robin! ^_^

    Working on the next chapter right now, I'm shooting for it to be done in about 2 weeks from now, most def before the end of September.

    In the meantime, pretty interesting read on how time works in Marvel, particularly Spider-Man - this is the kind of stuff I think about when merging Capcom and Marvel timelines. And yeah I'd like to keep this link somewhere within one of these fics for future reference. :smile:

    http://www.spideykicksbutt.com/SpiderMan101/SpiderMan101Part6.html

    Joe Quesada of Marvel now says that the Marvel Universe is only 7 years old. From the time Captain America awoke from the ice, Fantastic Four was created, Spider-Man got his powers, X-Men first came to be - 7 years to right now. Now that model may work for some things but for the purposes of my story from X-Men vs. SF to MVC2 heaven help me if I get that far 7 years is too short so I am going with more of a 15 year model like the link lists above, giving leway here and there of course. By the time of this fic it would about Marvel's 10th year or so...

    It's weird because in SF time is moving forward, but I won't mention specific timelines and dates within the fic because such a thing won't work for Marvel. Well, right now for SF it would be about 1990, the date SFZ3/A3 takes place. But by Marvel going by either a 15 or a 7 year model and it being 2007 now so to speak it doesn't work as well in their world as they try to constantly keep the characters current. But yeah so the fic may seem 'timeless' I won't mention the year 1990 in the story, though in case you want a year that would be it officially kind of lol!

    I suppose if the same universe of SF characters exist like Marvel minus them restarting everything I'm sure things like birthdays will be dropped, unless there is a reboot down the line.

    Oh, not sure since this may be misdirection on Marvel's side but it seems after Spidey's One More Day storyline that starts this week Marvel may do a reboot, make it so Spider-Man was never married to Mary Jane Ack! While I do try to work in current Capcom/Marvel stuff when I can like Chicken Sentinels in the last fic and some nods to Udon's stuff like Ryu in a tuxedo without shoes but the destruction of the marriage is gonna be ignored in this story 'cuz during the games they were married. And personally if Marvel goes ahead and does that I think it will be a flop and they'll put things back the way they were anyway, like the Clone Saga or when they tried to kill off MJ. But even if it's not a flop I like Spidey married so there. :razz:

    Ack, rambling lol! Just to let you know the kind of stuff I think about even though not everything will fit in perfectly - like I say this is a seperate universe from Marvel and SF's world anyway lol one where Spidey and MJ will stay married FOREVER gosh darn it! :rock: Still doing research AKA reading comics and playing video games ha ha so update coming soon. :sweat:

    Pregress report - Still doing research for the next chapter, which involves looking and playing two video games, reading old comics and looking up info and checking the SF Plot Guide, yeah research right I'm having a blast lol! Really trying to get the next chapter up today or tomorrow but there are still a few things I have to check into and Thursday through Sunday I have other things I have to do. So if there isn't an update within the next few days there should be something the week after or so.

    Update - I came across something during my research of Capcom characters and decided to make Joe one of the people Apocalypse had captured, so I edited the chapter that named the captured Capcom characters to add his name. There was something I was planning with him much much later on towards the end kind of sort of, but now I think I'm better off not doing it for the time being. Well, this will all make sense when the story is finished and I'll explain everything. I guess I can still change my mind later on... ah gotta love the Edit button. :rofl:

    In the process of writing up the end of the next chapter, as what usually happens with me it's so big it has to be split up into 2 chapters. So one part will be up later today if all goes according to plan with the other one going up next week or so. Would of been up sooner but real life got in the way a few times. Thanks for your patience! :sweat:

    Chapter 6: "Charging Marvel and Capcom Stars!"

    On the island of Madripoor that is located South of Singapore stood a gigantic Aztec Pyramid in the center of it's main city known as Hightown. The large black Pyramid towered over all of the tall skyscrapers in its vicinity and had a huge magnetic force field covering the entire area in the shape of a hemisphere. Try as they might, American fighter jets swarmed around the light blue sphere firing at it with an endless barrage of missiles and gunfire but it was to no avail.

    Captain America, also known as Steve Rogers and Chun-Li teleported inside the Aztec Temple. Its interior took on a light reddish purple coloring in sharp contrast to its exterior. The area where they landed took on the appearance of a military base despite the bright color. "I can see a door up ahead. We should be very close to the area where someone, most likely Magneto or Polaris is powering the Island Smasher. Once we take them out we can drop the force field around the base and the military can take care of the rest," stated Captain America. He started to walk down the large corridor being very careful of his surroundings, always mindful of possible traps. Chun-Li walked behind the great American hero.

    "So we are in Madripoor. Lots of criminals that escaped China's grasp have taken residence here." "Yes Chun-Li, this is a nation of the worst criminal scum the world world has to offer. Madripoor was an island inhabited by pirates years ago and in many ways not a single thing has changed. Things are even worse now after the ruling Prince passed away. The terrorist organization known as Hydra and the ninja order called The Hand are in a deadly civil war waged to decide who will take control of the island. With no ruling power the UN took it upon themselves to violate Madripoor's Airspace and attack this Pyramid for the greater good. We haven't met any opposition from The Hand or Hydra at all. S.H.I.E.L.D. has a few theories that the two organizations may be in cahoots with Apocalypse, yet currently they are laying low. However, it's something that we cannot confirm or deny at this point."

    "The Hand and Hydra... Interpol has had quite a few run-ins with them over the years," his female companion pointed out. "You are quite young for an Interpol Agent, aren't you?gh" Chun-Li smiled and took this as a compliment, even though it truly wasn't one. "Why yes, I'm the youngest woman in our division. I can assure you I'm up to the task." "Just, be careful. I lost a young partner, once." Steve Rogers eyes dropped to the floor and he wore a gloomy expression for a brief moment when he said this. But being an expert combatant it was only for a brief moment; his eyes soon continued to dash around the room while walking ahead, always ready for any sudden attacks.

    Since this was a very sensitive topic Chun-Li took a second to chose her words carefully. "Your old partner... Bucky Barnes. Even though he passed away during World War II, with you being encased in ice all of that time his death must feel like it only happened a few years ago. I am very sorry for your loss. Still with all due respect, when you entered the War you were quite a young man yourself, correct?"

    Her words caused the Captain to draw back his lips and show his teeth with a small grin since he knew the lady was right. He was but a sickly teenager when he volunteered as a test subject for a muscle enhancing chemical otherwise known as the Super-Soldier Serum. With the heightened endurance and strength the formula granted him he went off to fight against the Nazis and became the American embodiment of freedom and justice.

    "I suppose you're right. I apologize. Still, watch your back. We don't know exactly what we are up against."

    They were coming up to the door he spotted earlier. It was large and rectangular looked as if it would slide open like a garage door. After a bit he picked up the conversation again. "You know, you sure know a lot for a young agent." "Heh, what can I say, you are quite popular in China." She exclaimed with glee. "It's not only Ken, I also have a few of your comics..."

    Chun-Li's sentence was cut off when they were fifteen feet away from their destination. A panel high above on the cieling opened and twelve girls came dropping to the floor, all wearing dark blue outfits that were similar to Killer Bee's! (Yes, it was exactly like Juni and Juli's Street Fighter Zero Three Intro!) Soon the young sixteen year olds spread out and formed a line across the large door!

    With a raised shield the Captain was ready for anything. The war hero studied his opponents, already formulating an attack in his mind while quickly coming up with endless scenarios on what was the fastest way for him to take all of these women down before advancing. He was quite the honed warrior. Still, he found it a bit ironic that he was a tad harsh on Chun-Li for being a little young when the people they were about to go up against looked even younger than she did!

    Lacking the overall experience of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Chun-Li's jaw was practically on the floor. "The Twelve Dolls! Then it's true! Shadowloo must be involved!"

    The girls were all lined up from left to right, in month order so to speak as each of their names corresponded to the twelve portions of the year.

    Enero, the pink haired Spanish girl had an earpiece in her left ear that extended to her lips. With this com link she could communicate with the other dolls via microscopic nanochips implanted around the outside of their right ears. She could whisper and they would be able to hear her just fine. She had two fingers on the earpiece to keep it turned on for when she was ready to speak. Her other fist was raised in the air and her knees were slightly bent, she could attack at a moments notice. There was also a microphone that was holstered on her leg that had an extendable cord attached to one of her gloves, for situations were stealth was not necessary.

    The French girl Fevrier who also had pink hair right off the bat looked to be the most dangerous of the lot. She had a huge pistol aimed at Captain America and she held it up with both hands.

    By sharp contrast Marz didn't seem as threatening. She had one knee on the floor and on her other bent knee was a laptop computer that had a Shadowloo symbol on its back. She typed away with one hand while staring at the S.H.I.E.L.D. and Interpol agents. Marz also had an earpiece similar to Enero's since she was their intel specialist. Her free hand was at her side with her fingers wide open in quite a menacing way.

    The squad's medic Aprile, the Italian Doll had both of her hands at her sides and balled up as fists. In the spaces between her fingers she held six syringes, each one carried a deadly green fluid that would kill in an instant.

    Satsuki had a katana that was sheathed on her back. Her right hand was hovering about the hilt of her sword and she was bent down low in a squatting position like a samurai of long ago.

    Juni and Juli had no weapons or accessories and stood in their fighting stances, shifting form left the right very slightly like boxers and always ready to go off.

    Santamu, the Vietnamese Doll wielded a spear. There was also a Golden Lion Tamarine Monkey on her shoulder whose collar had a wire attached to Santamu's glove.

    Xiayu had two nun chucks, in each hand she held one end and the other two ends rested below her armpits. The other Chinese Doll Jianyu was holding her quarterstaff.

    The young Indian girl from Mexico Noembulu had twin hatchets with extendable cords attached to her gloves.

    Last but not least was Decapre, the Russian Doll. Decapre looked like Killer Bee only she was wearing a black mask and had a slightly darker skin tone. Both of her gloves had three small yet very sharp razor like claws.

    The first to speak was Juni in a very robot like fashion. "Target identified. Data match for ICPO Shadowloo Investigator Chun-Li. Recommend immediate elimination." Marz backed up her report by accessing Shadowloo's file on Chun-Li and the Power Rating they had on file for her. "Chun-Li. Power Rating. Strength, 2. Intelligence, 3. Energy Projection, 4. Fighting Ability, 5. Durability, 2. Speed, 2. Proceed with caution."

    Juli spoke next. "Target confirmed. Captain America. S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent and leader of the American Super Hero group known as the Avengers. Recommend immediate elimination." Once again Marz looked up the Power Rating Shadowloo had assigned to him."Captain America. Power Rating. Strength, 3. Intelligence, 3. Energy Projection, 1. Fighting Ability, 7 Durability, 3. Speed, 2. Proceed with caution."

    Once Marz finished she closed her laptop and brought the leg she had it resting on straight up in the air, breaking the PC in half! As an extra precaution Fevrier pointed her gun above her head and shot at the PC several times without even looking at it! In case their mission failed the Twelve Dolls could not allow the enemy to procure a laptop that could access the Shadowloo data base after all. As the small pieces of the shattered PC fell before both Marz and Fevrier she once again pointed her gun at Captain America. Enero formed a battle plan and was seconds away from whispering it into the ears of the rest of her team. The fight between Captain America, Chun-Li and the Twelve Dolls was about to begin.


    *******

    Info Bytes: This story takes shortly before Viper, formerly known as Madame Hydra takes over Madripoor Island. She has already taken over the castle from the ruling family after the death of the Prince, but she doesn't gain control of the island until her temporary marriage to Wolverine, which hasn't occurred yet. So at this point, Hydra and The Hand are still battling it out for control of the island. This is one of those instances where this story is pretty close to that story going by X-Men's/Wolverine's timeline so this all works out very well, of course that won't be the case every single time.

    The Pyramid rising in Madripoor is a shout out to Xtreme X-Men when the alien Khan's fortress appears on the beach front, but the Khan story doesn't happen until much much later. I didn't use the beach front because it would be a bit redundant and I figure a Pyramid rising in Hightown, the rich part of the Island would have a much faster rate of being repaired after this tale finishes when all is said and done than the poorer section, Lowtown. Yes Madripoor is divided into two parts, well I guess three if you count the beach front, and there's mountains too going by artwork of the island but that's another story. IE another comic book story I haven't read lol!

    Regarding Bucky Barnes, it is eventually revealed that he didn't die and is alive now and going by the name Winter Soldier, but that happened very recently in Marvel comics and will have no effect on this story at all. Suffice it to say that a lot of people don't stay dead in comics. Captain America is dead right now in Marvel comics, there's a very good chance that he will come back to life sooner or later. And you thought Nash was bad ha ha!

    The reason I wanted to have the Twelve Dolls here is because they play a huge part in Street Fighter Zero 3's storyline and just like a few major Marvel events will take place in this story so will some big-time Street Fighter events. Plus to me Captain America is always at his best when he is taking down multiple foes, and you probably don't need me to point all of the Doll/Shadowloo/Nazi comparisons so it's all in good fun. And on top of all that since this is all comic book based, Studio Udon used the Twelve Dolls a lot in their SF comic so it seemed fitting to have them in this story too.

    Speaking of, a very HUGE shout out goes out to TiamatRoar, fan artist Ataru and Studio Udon's comics, all three which I referenced to describe what the Twelve Dolls looked like. TiamatRoar through the Street Fighter Plot Guide (First link in my sig forever!) Studio Udon and Ataru through their artwork. I put a little spin on some of the characters but so did Ataru and Studio Udon in some areas so I figure its all good! Oh and Ataru once mentioned my name on his site (he reads Shoryuken.com, WOW!!!) so if by chance he reads this thanks so much as you are one of the people I dedicate this faq to! Ataru's site is here -

    http://www002.upp.so-net.ne.jp/atr4440/

    And you can find a lot of his drawings here. See if you can find all Twelve Dolls!

    http://www002.upp.so-net.ne.jp/atr4440/index_2.html

    I also have to shout out MNeidengard for his translation of Namco x Capcom, and of course Namco and Monolith and even Capcom's involvement for creating the game in the first place. I used almost the same speech Juni said to Chun-Li in the game regarding her stats since that is a game where they speak and all. Juli's too a bit. You can check out his Script Translation here and don't worry about me asking you to read a lot since Juni and Juli (Yuni and Yuri, these are two characters that I use the American names since the Japanese ones don't seem that different to me) speak to Chun-Li at the very beginning of Namco x Capcom! Okay by the very nature of writing a fan fic I'm asking people to read a lot lol!

    http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/926007/47929

    Lastly, the Power Ratings Marz is rattling off is based on the Power Ratings Marvel has for their characters, so I used Captain America's Power Rating from the Marvel Universe books. Chun-Li's is also based on that rating system, keeping in mind that this is still a younger Chun-Li. It seemed to be a bit more fun to me with this being a crossover and all instead of using Juni and Juli's HP/BP stats. Some people disagree with Marvel's Power Ratings saying they are made by tempts that don't know what they are doing lol but Captain America's is one of the ones that seems pretty dead on to me, give or take. Course if you disagree with his Power Rating or even the one I gave Chun-Li then hey, you can always say Shadowloo messed up, or they also have tempts who don't know what they are doing ha ha! I will write Captain America as being very fast, but keep in mind that there are people who can run at the speed of light in Marvel so a Normal rating for Speed still seems to fit IMHO. If you want to know exactly what the Power Ratings mean check out post #60 below. ^_^

    MARVEL SUPER HEROES VS. STREET FIGHTER

    Lastly was their leader, the Horseman of Death and by far the strongest of the four. He road on a pale green horse with a matching cloak, covered in purple hieroglyphics. War landed straight down to an area where he was surrounded by 20 Military Tanks. Death then took a huge leap off of his horse soaring as high as 50 feet in the air! With his right hand he fired about 100 red fireballs at the Tanks destroying them all!

    Dont you mean "War" then took a huge leap...?
    Sorry, i got confused.

    just a word on the 1st chapter. I agree with your call on how would you introduce four mysterious figures into the play; coming out of thin air and just doing damage to cape citadel. Very smart to launch a initiative to weaken to opposition, ensuring the advantage when the war officialy begins, even though i doubt such strategy would really be needed, seeing how easily the 4 horsemen defeated the military base. Apocalypse was smart to set out his horsemen to control earth's military firms first and foremost.

    I also like how you were able to showcase each of the horsemen's unique abilities. Famine's was executed with a touch of being demented, and eratic. While the Horsemen of Death's was done in such a way that his strength does'nt need explanation.
    "No..the starving...children" was nice. I take it as a way of hinting that Famine was either once a good fellow gone bad, or he has an wierd sense of honor, being that it is ok to kill armed soldiers, but you must always think about the children. lol.

    either way, i know next to nothing about the 4 Horsemen, so im just giving an outsiders opinion. my bad.

    I advise more detail on the carnage. All im getting is what the Horsemen are doing, and how its done. nothing on how the soldiers felt. In my opinion, describing the soldiers traumas, and utter shock towards the powers of the Horsemen can potentialy do a better job at describing the terror of these 4 soldiers. It's better than adding a "!" at the end of each sentence when you're describing the scene.
    Ay look. I keep my ass clean. If a girl wants to put her tongue up there then, you know, whatever shinkuus her hadouken man.

    Yeah I meant Death in that paragraph, I spelled 'road' wrong too, see these are mistakes spell check doesn't catch. :rofl:

    Thanks for the advice and thank you for reading. I'll give more thought to describing trauma in the future. I will also go back and edit the soldier's reactions a bit later on, after I get the next chapter up. I appreciate any and all help. :smile:

    Chapter 7: "Guys and Twelve Dolls!"

    Speaking very quietly Enero instructed her other teammates using her com link. "Fevrier, Aprile and Santamu, we will engage Captain America. If you manage to kill Captain America instantly Fevrier train your gun on Chun-Li. Marz, Satsuki, Xiayu and Jianyu attack the Interpol Agent. Noembulu, Decapre, Juni and Juli hang back for now and study your opponents' moves. If we should happen to fail Noembulu and Decapre, finish off the Captain. Juni and Juli, we will leave Chun-Li to you." "ROGER," yelled the other eleven women.

    Eight of the Twelve Dolls started running to their opponents with Fevrier leading the pack, firing her gun at Captain America! His shield managed to protect him from gunfire, and both himself and Chun-Li ran towards their aggressors. "SHIELD SLASH," screamed the legendary hero as he looked like he was throwing away his shield, but he tossed it to move in a clockwise direction (going from 6 O'clock where he would be standing to 12 O'clock where Fevrier was) like one would throw a Frisbee while evading oncoming bullets by running a few feet to his right. He wouldn't have to evade gunfire for long since shield struck Fevrier in her head taking her out!

    Fevrier's gun went soaring high up in the air. When Captain America's shield was at the 3 o'clock mark returning to him Chun-Li quickly stepped on it with her left foot and leaped high enough in the air to catch Fevrier's gun! His shield was back in his hand and Steve Rogers was really surprised with the young lady's skill level! Being the expert marksman that she was all while still being above the floor, the young martial artist fired at the feet of the seven attacking Dolls, forcing all of them to move back! Jianyu used her staff like a pole vault and went high enough to strike Dohrai's daughter down, but when she was close enough Chun-Li spun around and slammed the gun to the side of Jainyu's face knocking her out cold! Soon as her white boots touched the floor Chun-Li tossed the gun away because it wasn't her style. She assumed her fighting stance, smiled and motioned with one hand for her opponents to come attack her in a very Bruce Lee like fashion!

    Since he was able to read Enero's lips earlier on the Marvel Super Hero already knew the three other women that were going to attack him. He figured it was best to indulge them and let Chun-Li handle the rest. Santamu's monkey made a ferocious noise and jumped at the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Steve knocked the monkey unconscious with a karate chop to the neck! Santamu didn't do much better with her spear, the instant it made contact with his Vibranium/Adamantium shield it snapped in two! A second karate chop to the pressure point between her nose and upper lip ended that skirmish.

    Aprile threw all six of her syringes at Cap. With incredible reflexes he bent his left index finger and rammed its center into all of the syringes coming towards him, destroying them all while not letting the broken glass or poisonous fluid the contained touch him even though they came at him with remarkable speed! Still the deadly needles may as well have been frozen in midair with the Captain's quick reaction time, turning his forearm six different ways to shatter the projectiles was a small feat to the highly skilled war veteran! Throwing his shield vertically at Aprile's forehead made one less opponent he had to square off against today. His weapon bounced off her head going about as high as Fevrier's gun did moments ago.

    Lastly Enero yelled "HEEYAH," when she came at him with an Axe Spin Knuckle. Cap dodged the back fisted strike, gave her left and right punches to the stomach and a spin kick to her right cheek! While soaring away Enero grabbed her microphone that had an extendable cord attached to her glove and she lassoed it around his neck! Ignoring the pain of being choked to death and before Enero's feet hit the floor Captain America gave the cord a good tug. Enero went straight at him and was greeted with a mighty head butt! It was all over for Enero. She went down and the cord around his neck loosened. His shield came down finally and he caught it with his right hand.

    Meanwhile Chun-Li evaded Marz's kicks to her head, mid section and legs by bobbing, moving back and making a small hop. She sent a right kick to the right side of the doll's face and in one motion guided her head to the hard metallic floor!

    Xiayu attacked with her nunchucks swinging away, the young Street Fighter did a back flip to avoid her weapons. At the moment she was upside down and her back was facing Xiayu she quickly wrapped both nun chucks around her arms! While it seemed that Chun-Li was at a disadvantage she speedily managed to turn things around. Once her back flip ended and her arms were wrapped up by the silver chains with Xiayu standing before her, Chun-Li jumped straight up in the air with her assailant in tow. An aerial somersault kick not only knocked Xiayu out but at the same time this caused the nunchucks to drag down Chun-Li's arms and eventually the chains snapped once they made contact with her steel hard bracelets! Upon coming down Chun-Li had two halves of the the twin nunchucks in her hands, grasping them by their chains!

    Satsuki drew her katana sword from her back and began to swing wildly at Chun-Li. Flinging her two nunchuck halves and blocking with them and her bracelets when necessary she managed to avoid all of the sword strikes! All that was heard was a series of clangs as metal clashed against metal time and time again! The two kept moving in circles with Satsuki attacking and Chun-Li blocking. This was quite the spectacle, it looked like a beautifully over rehearsed dance! Still every dance along with every battle must reach its inevitable end. When Satsuki raised her sword high above her head to split Chun-Li like a log of firewood the woman who was determined to destroy Shadowloo quickly choked up on her nunchuck halves so she was holding them by their pole ends and not by the chains. In an instant the Street Fighter rammed both of the nunchuck halves into Satsuki's ears! Everything went black for the young Japanese Doll, she dropped her sword and was the last of the eight to fall.

    With numerous front flips Noembulu and Decapre came at Captain America. Decapre struck first with a lightning speed barrage of claw strikes which created an endless array of sparks across his red white and blue shield, it looked almost like an extreme close up of a fourth of July fireworks show. Soon Steve sidestepped, got behind her and and kicked her in her right kidney! This is a very effective way to take someone down from behind and never mind that this blow was delivered by someone who can lift twice their own body weight! Decapre dropped to the floor!

    About seven feet apart lay Noembulu and Captain America. She attacked him with her twin tomahawks that were attached to long extendable ropes connected to the back of her gloves, much like Enero's microphone. The Captain rolled back a few feet to dodge the hatchets that were swinging all over the place. Kneeling down he blocked all of the blows with his shield, it looked like a perverse game of double dutch since the ropes connected to the tomahawks moved in almost circular motions, hitting Cap's armament again and again. With his keen battle instincts he waited for the exact moment when the two long ropes were not blocking his path to avoid getting tangled up in them. This task was next to impossible for a normal man, given the speed of the ropes made them look almost invisible. Though of course, Steve Rogers was far removed from being a normal man. Cap quickly took advantage of the split second the ropes were not in front of him and the path from himself to Noembulu was clear. "CHARGING STAR!" He rapidly dashed through the open path and rammed his shield into Noembulu's chest knocking the wind out of her and knocking her out at the same time!

    Captain America lowered his shield to his side thinking his fight with the Dolls was over but that was a faulty assumption. Decapre expeditiously rose up and shoved the claws in her right hand into Captain America's right shoulder blade! The living embodiment of freedom and justice let out a small yell in pain and hastily spun around to strike her with his weapon! He missed since Decapre vanished right before his eyes thanks to performing Juni's Mach Slide move! The speedy evasive maneuver put her at Captain America's side and when he turned to face her she Russian Doll's claws dug deep into the star on his chest making three diagonal claw marks through it! At the same time he was falling he let of the straps on his armament just for an instant, but it was long enough for Decapre to kick his shield away!

    With Cap on the floor Decapre leaped back a great distance and began throwing kunai at him. These blades that were in the shape of a leaf and had a pole handle with a ring on the end typically used by Ninja came flying at her opponent as if Decapre was a human gatling gun! She had several kunai hidden amongst her body but her arms were moving so fast you couldn't tell where she was getting all of the weapons from which seemed to number in the 100s!

    Despite his wounds and with his back now towards the door the dolls were standing in front of prior, Steve Rogers got up and sprinted all the way to the corner of the wall with a steady stream of Kunai just seconds behind him! The noise the blades made against the metallic walls was something like a metallic version of hail falling on your window, the blades clanged on the wall and as they hit the floor over and over again! A while after Captain America turned the corner, almost as graceful as an ice skater he jumped in the air while moving forward and spun around catching two kunai by their handles! Still soaring, the war hero tossed one of the blades through the path of oncoming kunai and it managed to strike the lower edge of his shield that was now a few feet behind Decapre and a bit towards her right! The shield went flipping high up in the air like a coin toss! Decapre saw the shield and figured out what Cap was going to do next, so she stopped throwing kunai and leaped backwards. Still, making the necessary adjustments in his head Cap whose feet have still not touched the ground spun again and tossed a second kunai at the lower side of the shield making it spiral down at an angle and strike aerial Decapre on the top of her head! Yet again, the armament went high up in the air after the large thud, almost touching the ceiling.

    Decapre was having a hard time remaining on her feet with the blow to her head coupled by the attack on her kidney earlier, she was shifting from side to side like a drunkard. She still managed to pull herself together long enough to attempt to finish of her opponent. The Russian Doll started running and eventually her feet left the floor. She was hovering just above the ground, her right knee was bent and her left leg was stretched out. Her two claws were at her sides as this move was similar to one of Balrog's (ninja) moves. The young 16 year old's Ki was so strong that the floor beneath her claws left streaks of sparks even though they weren't touching the floor! Cap ran up to his assailant and her reaction time was a bit to slow this time due to her injuries. Cap managed to slam his knee right into her mask causing her to land on her back! In the same motion since Cap had performed a somersault knee strike, he back flipped through the air and like always caught his shield upon its decent. Next, he dropped to one knee and carelessly let half of the shield cut inside of floor while he was still holding on to it. He began breathing heavily because Decapre's wounds did effect the great American hero, even if this was yet another fight that he was able to walk away from in his long history of fighting.

    While Captain America fought Noembulu and Decapre Chun-Li faced off against Juni and Juli. Side by side the two girls walked forward slowly like two fashion runway models. When they were close enough to the Interpol Agent they raised their fists and started bouncing back and forth while remaining in position. Chun-Li also raised her fists at her opponents and this face off didn't last for very long.

    Caught unaware by her sudden speed Chun-Li fell victim to Juni's Hooligan Combination. Rolling herself like a ball and flipping toward Chun-Li she attacked her mid section with both of her hands folded together. Quickly she followed up with a low kick to knock her off balance. Then not long after Juni put one foot and her opposite knee on both sides of Chun-Li's face and slammed her head into the floor with her Cross Scissor Pressure move! The minute Chun-Li rose up and still a bit dizzy from the harsh blow, Juli attacked with a Sniping Arrow trying to kick her her in the face with this lunging kick. The beautiful Chinese woman blocked the move with her bracelets that she had crossed in front of her face, however she was driven back a bit. Still, before Juli landed on the floor Chun-Li stepped in and gave her a really good punch in the eye! The sixteen year olds' right eye started to swell up very fast, it was a really good blow!

    The two Dolls flipped away from their opponent and when they stopped Juni was behind Juli. "HAAAAH," exclaimed the dirty blonde while sparks came out of her hand and entered the brunette's body. Yes, Juni performed her Psycho Charge Alpha move! Juli's swelled eye was instantly healed! "This energy... feels familiar... this is... PSYCHO POWER," deduced Chun-Li.

    Coming to interrupt this exchange of energy she tried to kick Juli but Juni got in the way and blocked with a Psycho Shield, surprising her once again since the block created what looked like a thunderbolt effect upon collision! After that Juni slid behind Chun-Li and her partner came before her. Both of the Dolls attacked her with their Double Super Art, the Death Cross Dancing! The Shadowloo Agents struck her with a wide array of punches, kicks and other blows ending with both of them kicking her face and soaring to either side of her while Chun-Li spun around and landed on her back!

    "I can't... say between them... I must... distance myself..." Chun-Li thought to herself. Remarkably she was able to stand on her feet despite the beating she took. A few huge jumps Chun-Li style and she was up against the door all 12 Dolls were in front of earlier and form here she did a wall jump. Juni who chased after her was just in time to receive an aerial High Kick to the stomach! Right below the two on the floor Juli raised her fist to execute her Psycho Charge Beta, energy swirled all around her and soon enough she had enough power to nab her enemy with her Reverse Shaft Breaker Super Art! This Cannon Drill that rises straight up in the air vertically instead of coming at you horizontally hit the young Asian a few times and sent her falling back down spiraling out of control, head first! Not content letting her just fall that way, Juni who landed on her hands when she was kicked in the stomach quickly sprang up and put both her feet around the falling woman's neck, spun around like a clock attempting to ram her head into the floor with her Frankensteiner! Seemed like Chun-Li was about to loose this fight, her eyes were closed and all appearances indicated that the Reverse Shaft Breaker took the fight our of her.

    But of course she wasn't done just yet! Chun-Li also landed on her hands and that stopped her head from making contact with the floor! While she was upside down with a windmill like motion she twirled around and kicked Juni three times! The harsh kicks sent Juni away and Juli who tried to attack was next! "HYA! HYA! HYA!" over and over again she yelled and her Lightning Kick, the Hyakuretsu Kyaku was too much for Juli to handle knocking her back! The multiple kicks she received at a machine gun's pace were some of the harshest blows Juli had ever been struck with! Juni seemed to have wanted more punishment and was greeted to a knee to the back of her head with Chun-Li's Kaku Kyaku Raku! With this move (performed DF + HK) she flipped over and behind Juni and struck her from behind! Now while behind her she put her hand in front of Juni's face and threw her with such force that she landed on Juli and knocked her back down since she was trying to stand up!

    Realizing that the tide of the battle turned around really fast both of the Shadowloo agents rose up. Juli attacked with a Spin Knuckle and Juni with a Spiral Arrow, but Chun-Li stood on her hands and spun herself around with her legs stretched out. "SPINNING BIRD KICK!" Her famous upside down whirlwind maneuver interrupted both of their attacks while striking both of them many times, spinning and juggling the two in the air before they finally lost consciousness! In the end, Juni and Juli were both powerful opponents but they were no match for Chun-Li's lethal kicks!

    When all was said and done she walked over to her partner. "Captain America, you're hurt!" She noticed the three slashes on his chest and the small streams of blood that dripped from them. He rose up forcing his shield out of the floor. "I'll be fine. My wounds aren't that bad. I may not have Wolverine's Healing Factor but I do heal up pretty fast." "Yeah, I remember. Shadowloo gives you a 3 for Durability," she quipped. "Heh, they may have to raise your Power Ratings as well. Nice work Chun-Li, I'm impressed! Do you have any serious injuries?" She placed her hand behind her head and looked at it. Her hand was covered with some spots of blood. This was from Juni's Cross Scissor Pressure move. "Ah, I'm gonna have a nasty bump in the morning but I'm as well as can be expected." "Good, now let's finish this job..."

    The giant door before them started to slide open. Inside of the room that housed many computer screens all around its walls stood two figures. The one standing in front was wearing a red cloak with blue hieroglyphics and to his left but behind him was another person wearing the exact opposite, a blue cloak with red hieroglyphics. Far behind them was another huge door much like the one that just opened up before our heroes.

    "It's... A Dark Rider... and in front of him, it's the Horseman of War!"

    With one hand the Horseman of War removed his red cloak with blue hieroglyphics away and underneath was Vega, the leader of Shadowloo! While showing all his teeth he started to laugh like a mad man! "VEGA! YOU'RE ALIVE!" Chun-Li grabbed Fevrier's pistol that was on the floor and aimed it at the evil dictator!


    *******

    Info Bytes: Chun-Li vs. Juni and Juli is based on SFZ3(SFA3) and Chun-Li on Xism in that game. Having Chun-Li fight Juni and Juli in the game as a mid boss battle is one of my favorite things about SFZ3 so I had to have that in my little pocket universe! Oh and she doesn't have the Spinning Bird Kick in any of the Marvel games but she does have it in Xism in SFZ3, so I got to use the move too just this once but it will probably be the only time, heh heh! ^_^

    *******

    Next Up: One Horseman revealed, 3 more to go! Again, if you've managed to figure out who the other three are please stay mum about it. And who is that Dark Rider that is standing behind him? Anyway next time, Captain America faces off against Vega and Chun-Li fights the Dark Rider! There's a few other things I have to take care of but I am hoping that I will be able to update this in January. Catch you in two months! ^_^

    Oh, not sure since this may be misdirection on Marvel's side but it seems after Spidey's One More Day storyline that starts this week Marvel may do a reboot, make it so Spider-Man was never married to Mary Jane Ack! While I do try to work in current Capcom/Marvel stuff when I can like Chicken Sentinels in the last fic and some nods to Udon's stuff like Ryu in a tuxedo without shoes but the destruction of the marriage is gonna be ignored in this story 'cuz during the games they were married. And personally if Marvel goes ahead and does that I think it will be a flop and they'll put things back the way they were anyway, like the Clone Saga or when they tried to kill off MJ. But even if it's not a flop I like Spidey married so there. :razz:

    Yeah, Marvel actually went through with it and via a deal with Mephisto to save his dying Aunt May, Spidey and MJ are no longer married! He's living with his Aunt May and Norman Osborn is alive again, utter lunacy! :looney: Well such a thing won't reflect Spidey's role in this story unless Marvel manages to go back and change all of the Capcom Spidey endings where he's married ha ha! A rough guestimate but Spidey should show up here something like 3 to 4 chapters from now. Some more info and negative reviews on Spidey and MJ splitting up oooh -

    http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=141416

    Ah, another SF game with SF4 and another chance for Capcom to retcon a bunch of stuff! :rofl: I think for the most part if they make any changes to the past it will be ignored here, since SF4 is at least 3 + years ahead of the time of this story. Plus this story obviously doesn't take place in Capcom's official storyline for SF anyway, the same way it doesn't take place in Marvel's. Course if I can I may sneak in a SF4 nod at some point like I tend to do. Hmm at my snail's pace SF5 may come out before I'm done... :rofl: Anyways, at the end of the day I'm happy that SF's storyline is continuing along with Marvel's. Any information on Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Dhalsim who have been confirmed for 4 and are in this fic is pretty relavant to me and helps give me some ideas on how I should handle them here and in the future. :tup:

    Yet another pointless post that involves me quoting myself and no new story entry! :sweat:The next update is still coming at the end of this month, or early February at best. Course this is all tentative. Haven't forgotten about tweaking the first chapter with reactions from the soldiers either, I'm planning on looking at that on MLK day. Once again thanks for your patience and Happy New Year! :party:

    Looked at the first chapter again and I decided not to enclude the soldier's reactions. I think it's a great idea but it's kind of not the way I work, I'm more of a big picture kind of person. In a sense I always feel the beginning of a story should be more about action and then later on you can get into things like that as the story develops. I feel I have enough of that with how the soldier reacted to the Horseman of Famine's attack since that was the most up close and personal of the attacks.

    Who knows, after I finish the entire thing I may revisit that part again but it is difficult for me to add things to the past when there is a lot that still needs to get done...

    I still appreciate any and all suggestions. All I can do is apologize for my crappy writing skills and move on lol!

    BTW I'm really looking forward to Dasiatic's upcoming fan fic that he mentioned on Warrior's Fate! :tup:

    Gonna start working on the next chapter during Presedent's Day, about February 21 or so. It's a huge chapter so I can't say when it will be placed up here. I have the first week of March off from work so that is at least a good bet. Anyway, sorry about any and all delays. :sweat:

    Chapter 8: "Smacked to the Future!"

    Chun-Li kept Marz' gun trained on Vega, still surprised to learn that he was the Horseman Of War. Captain America kept a close eye on Vega along with the cloaked Dark Rider standing behind him.

    Much like the hallway our heroes just left, this room also had a light reddish purple coloring to it. There were various flat screens of both sides of this large area. Far behind Vega and the Dark Rider was another huge rectangular door that could slide open vertically just like the one Chun-Li and Captain America entered through. The Twelve Dolls of Shadowloo were all knocked out cold and in the hallway; the door the superhero and Interpol Agent entered remained open for the time being.

    "VEGA... HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOU ARE STILL ALIVE?"

    Chun-Li's gun toting hands trembled as these words managed to find their way out of her mouth. She pulled the trigger back just a bit, only not enough to unload. There stood the man that killed her father. It really wouldn't take too much effort to convince her to blow his head off, even if chances are doing so still wouldn't mean the end of the leader of Shadowloo.

    "Huh! Huh! Huh! Since these will be your final moments on Earth I have no problems granting your last request by answering your question! Huh! Huh! Huh!"

    "After I was defeated by Cyclops (during X-Men vs. Street Fighter) my charred and broken body remained lying on the ground of the Amazon Rain Forest. Slowly my flesh started to regenerate. Still, as the hours passed I was barely clinging to life. Even with my amazing Psycho Powers, the damage down to my body was too great for me to survive. Everything started to go dark, until I sensed a ray of hope."

    "A ray... of hope," questioned the young woman who was puzzled by his choice of words.

    "Yes. I sensed an amazing power, a rival even to my Psycho Power." With a rather serious expression on his face, the Dictator lifted up his right hand and looked at it when he uttered these words, "I raised my disfigured hand up in the air to feel this energy. My hand was struck with what appeared to be a lightning bolt!"

    "That energy... The same power that made all of our friends disappear and caused the entire pyramid to vanish," added Chun-Li once more.

    "It is one in the same. When I awoke my Shadowloo scientists along with the aid of Apocalypse managed to repair my body. Good as new and now I am more powerful than ever! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

    "Your story doesn't make any sense." Captain America finally spoke up. "During the time you were fighting against the X-Men and Street Fighters the Horseman of Apocalypse were capturing heroes and Martial Artists around the world. If what you say is true, than how can you be the Horseman of War? How is it possible for you to be in two places at once?"

    "Heh. Time Travel."

    "TIME TRAVEL? What do you take us for, idiots?" "Oh my sweet Chun-Li, I am many things but a liar isn't one of them."

    Vega continued, "You see, when Apocalypse fell into the white orb in his temple and seemingly imploded (during X-Men vs. Street Fighter), that orb had the the power to make him travel back one year in time. It appears that the orb is quite a powerful entity. It was able to speak into Apocalypse's mind and reveal it's ultimate plan. It also gave Apocalypse the power to grab as many people as he could take along with the entire temple itself, back to one year in the past."

    "I think... I'm beginning to understand. Capturing the heroes and martial artists, The Island Smashers, the nuclear warheads, setting up bases on The Savage Land and Madripoor that rose from the Earth... Everything was coordinated to occur around the same time many Mutants and Street Fighters were fighting it out in Brazil. At least half of your opposition was occupied. Going back in time you knew full well when it was the right time to act."

    "Ah, the white star hero gets a golden star for the day! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!"

    "Time Travel... Magical balls of light... None of this makes any sense!" "Believe me Chun-Li, during my tenure as an Avenger I've seen quite a few things... Let's just say that Vega's story isn't outside the realm of possibility..."

    Vega's toothy grin instantly turned into a frown. "Now for more pressing matters. DOCTOR SENOH!"

    Upon his yell all of the various computer screens on both sides of the room turned on and revealed a bald little scientist (the same scientist from Street Fighter II The Animated Movie). "Yes Vega Sama!"

    "The Twelve Dolls have been a huge disappointment. Teleport them back to Apocalypse's base. He can drain them of all of their energy if he wants to. When he's done you can dispose of them. There is no room for failure in Shadowloo."

    Juni woke up just in time to hear Vega's words, even if she was too weak to allow herself to stand up. Her pupils shrank when she whispered the words "We are... to be disposed of?"

    "Yes Vega Sama. Right away." Doctor Senoh pushed a few buttons and both Chun-Li and Captain America turned to see all of the girls teleported away after leaving a bright flash of pink light. Shadowloo was obviously using a similar technology used by Captain America and Chun-Li to arrive at this destination. The door behind the remaining cast of characters finally closed, sliding down slowly. All of the computer screens immediatly shut off.

    Chun-Li turned her head to face Vega, her gun remained pointed at his forehead throughout, even when she was looking at the girls vanish. "These children... You brainwashed these girls to do your evil bidding! How could you? Your acts are unforgivable Vega!"

    "HA HA HA HA HA HA! You amuse me child! Okay then... I'll let you earn the right to be my next guinea pig!"

    "We don't have time for this!" Commanded the mighty Captain. "Vega, where is the Island Smasher in this temple?"

    "Huh. Looks like it's time to get down to business. The Island Smasher is in the room that's right behind me. If you want access to it, all you have to do is get passed me and my little friend!"

    Still angry about the fate of the Twelve Dolls, Chun-Li tossed her gun to the side and raised her fists. "VEGA! I WILL DEFEAT YOU WITH MY BARE HANDS!"

    "HEH! I'll play with you another time, future guinea pig! Instead, why don't you see if you can defeat my latest guinea pig?"

    The man with the blue cloak covered in red hieroglyphics stepped in front of Vega, a bit to his left. With one arm he tossed his cloak aside. Chun-Li was shocked to see who was underneath!

    "N-NASH!?"

    Speaking in a rather robotic fashion, the Dark Rider replied "Negative. I am Shadowloo Agent Shadow."


    *******

    Info Bytes: Doctor Senoh returns, I used him in X-Men vs. Street Fighter as well. In Street Fighter II The Animated movie itself he doesn't have a name, but Saiki of the Street Fighter Plot Guide fame said his name was Senoh according to Capcom, I'm assuming that's the name they gave him for his one time video game ending appearance so I've just been going by that. Eh I just like his look better than the other scientists from Street Fighter anime, even if I know what their names are LOL!

    Chun-Li waiving the gun at Vega is taken from Street Fighter Zero 3 as she does in her scenario from that game. Some of the dialog comes from the English translation of that game too, when she starts talking about the innocent children and Vega calls her a guinea pig. Oh and her line to Nash and his line back at her comes from when Shadow appeared in Studio Udon's comic, I just swapped out Charlie for Nash and Shadaloo for Shadowloo since I just like to spell it Shadowloo heh heh! Their fight here will be different from how Udon did it though, I haven't worked out the scenario just yet, okay might be one more Udon nod during the fight but that's it lol! Just wanted to give a few nods here and there to some Street Fighter related stuff instead of the Marvel stuff I'm always shouting out. ^_^

    *******

    NEXT UP: Captain America vs. Vega! Chun-Li vs. Shadow! Plus guest appearances from SFZ characters and another Marvel character shows up too! Man what's coming is so good it makes you wanna slap your momma! P.S. Two seconds after I typed this my momma slapped me, OUCH! Hopefully I can get the next chapter up in a few days if all goes. Like Stan Lee used to say in Marvel's letter pages a long time ago - Face Front! :P

    Chapter 9: "Me and My Agent Shadow!"

    While she was not present to witness his final battle, she was told that Nash gave his life destroying Apocalypse once and for all (during X-Men vs. Street Fighter). You can imagine the shock she was receiving seeing him stand before her, now going by the name Shadow.

    He wasn't exactly the way Chun-Li remembered him. His skin and clothing were a much darker tone, as if he was standing in the shade like his name implies.

    "Huh huh huh! The man you knew as Nash is dead! He has been reborn as a loyal Agent of Shadowloo. Now he is more machine than man. Shadow, how about a demonstration," commanded Vega.

    Shadow took off his glasses and put them away. He stretched his arms out before him as far as he could, almost like he was about to start sleep walking. While his hands remained a dark orange tone, with but a thought from Shadow they instantly took on the look of an advanced science fiction robot's multi-segmented hands. The edges of his fingertips opened up creating ten square holes at the end of each of his digits. From each of these fingers Shadow started firing a multitude of bullets at Chun-Li (much like his ending in the Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter video game)!

    Chun-Li performed a few side flips to her left to avoid the gunfire and edge closer to the firearm she tossed to the far side of the room. She wasn't able to get anywhere near Marz' gun. Shadow's fingers quickly returned to normal and he chased after her. No longer one to shout out moves while he performed them he nabbed Chun-Li in the stomach with his Somersault Shell!

    Our heroine yelled in agony after receiving this deadly blow. The effect was quite different from getting hit by this attack by the Nash of old. Her entire body was covered with light blue flames! She instantly remembered getting hit by attacks like this when she fought against Vega (also during X-Men vs. Street Fighter) so she was fully aware that Nash was using Psycho Power just like Juni and Juli were! On top of that, Shadow's skeleton was entirely metallic now. It wasn't as strong as Wolverine's Adamantium laced skeleton but all the same, getting kicked by Shadow in the stomach was the equivalent of being struck with an aluminum bat going 80 miles an hour! With the added touch of Psycho Power, well you can understand why Chun-Li was screaming for dear life. It was just as Vega said. Nash's entire body was rebuilt from the ground up. He really was more machine than man.

    After the Psycho flames dispersed Chun-Li rose to her knees clutching her stomach in pain. She vomited quite a bit of blood on the floor. As much as the attack hurt, it was nothing compared to pain in her heart. Just knowing that she would have to fight against one of her best friends was enough to upset the rather soft hearted young woman. Able to stand up she bent her knees, placed a fist in front of her face and another to her side. The battle for Nash's soul was about to commence.

    "CHUN-LI!" Captain America ran to her aid. He stopped dead in his tracks once Vega teleported in front of him! With his arms folded and a huge smile the leader of the Terrorist Organization proclaimed, "Captain America. Why don't we leave those two lovebirds alone while we have some fun!"

    Bending his forearms while putting his palms in front of him, Vega's entire body was engulfed with light blue energy. His smile dropped from his face and the aura that surrounded his body stretched out and struck Captain America (like his projectile attacks in Street Fighter II The Animated Movie)! It wasn't enough power to set the Captain's body ablaze like what happened to Chun-Li since Vega held back a bit, but it was enough to send him quite some distance away and on his backside! Cap knew that he would have to take down Vega himself before he could offer Chun-Li any help. Only then could they fulfill their mission's objective and destroy the Island Smasher located in the base once and for all.

    "Nash... I don't know how thorough Vega's brainwashing was, but if I have to beat some sense in you to snap you out of it than so be it!" "Negative. My name... is Shadow..."

    Dashing towards her opponent she tried to punch the brainwashed victim in the face about five times, but her left and right punches were blocked away by Shadow's speedy elbow movements, deflecting each and every blow. She did manage to punch Shadow square in the chest, but this move caused the Interpol Agent more damage than her adversary! It was the equivalent of punching a tank! After the clang her fist made from striking his chest, Chun-Li let out an "OW!" while she hopped back a bit, clutching her injured fist. Shadow gave her no time to heal, sliding forward and kicking Chun-Li in the neck with his Step Kick! She was pushed back even further and the same left hand that was caressing her injured hand now covered her neck! After this blow she had trouble breathing!

    While grasping for air the Street Fighter who was currently taking a beating thought to herself, "His body... is like steel... Punching him with my bare fists will have no effect. I must find another way."

    Shadow's next move was his Spin Back Knuckle. Chun-Li ducked just in time to avoid the blow. With her Crouching Medium Kick she did a half turn on the ground and kicked Shadow's feet with her extended right leg. Since she was wearing white boots her feet could absorb much more of the impact against her opponent's steel interior than her bare fists could. After this kick Shadow's balance was thrown a bit off so on her way to standing up she delivered another right kick to his left oblique. This caused his body to fall over and shift to his right. Taking advantage of the situation, the now fully erect Chun-Li with a back knuckle maneuver rammed her right bracelet into Shadow's face! One of the metal spikes on her bracelet's edge probably would not of dug so deep into his face if she hadn't also used the momentum of him falling to his side! Normally, the spike would have struck just in front his right ear but the new Agent of Shadowloo turned his face towards her bracelet at exactly the wrong moment so now there was a hole just below his right eye! Chun-Li had successfully begun to chip away at the armor surrounding her opponent. Unfortunately, she did take on a bit of damage, receiving a mild spark that traveled from the cyborg's body, to her bracelet and on to her person, so she quickly hopped away. The electric shock was enough to subdue a normal person, but Chun-Li has experienced far worse during her tenure as a Martial Artist. Besides, there was no way she could let up now.

    Shadow was edging back, having trouble regaining his footing like some kind of drunken sailor. Chun-Li came after him rapidly and when her hands were just before the area between his chest and stomach she yelled "YAH," letting out her Reishiki Kikouken! During this standing fireball move, a white orb of her Ki formed in front of her hands with this smaller version of her Kikoshou Super Art! When the attack struck Shadow sparks started to fly out the hole underneath his eye since Ki attacks do damage to the insides of opponents as well! Already stumbling, this was enough to send Shadow soaring and he fell flat on his back!

    He was down but far from out. Shadowloo's mindless puppet rose up at a speed that didn't seem humanly possible and performed his Backward Dash, taking a hop back. Now he was about 12 feet away from Chun-Li. "HUH," he expressed while firing off his one armed Sonic Boom! Chun-Li dodged the spinning projectile by leaping straight up in the air, about ten feet. Shadow jumped towards her but when he was close enough, Chun-Li brought her powerful legs to her chest to soar ten more feet in the air! He was no match for her Double Jump! When he turned his head up in the air so he could follow her movement all Shadow saw was the bottom of her left boot! Her downward kick, the Yoso Kyaku nabbed him right in the face and sent him straight down!

    Like a cats are known to do he landed on his feet and Chun-Li landed on the floor space right in front of him. Kneeling down on the ground her body began to charge with white energy. "HAZAN.." she said and once she began the attack she yelled "..TENSHOU KYAKU!" This Super Art, a much more powerful version of her Tenshou Kyaku juggles and lifts her opponents in the air while she rotates and kicks them with her extended split legs! It's like her Spinning Bird Kick only she isn't upside down and her body is tilted at an angle. Very few Martial Artists can survive the full brunt of this attack!

    Even so, it had no effect on Shadow whatsoever since he blocked every single kick! At the same time Chun-Li commenced her attack he leaped up in the air and spun is body around at an even faster rate than she did! While Chun-Li's body turned counter clockwise his turned clockwise, they were like two gears in a complex piece of machinery! With his fist before his face he used his right elbow that was a bit before his chest to to continually push the back of Chun-Li's feet into the direction they were already spinning, so she missed every single time! Chun-Li was attacking with both legs and Shadow was blocking with one arm, so he was that much faster than his former partner!

    After blocking the last kick of her Hazan Tenshou Kyaku while they were still in the air, he countered with his Aerial Somersault the Moonsault Slash! Once more her body was covered with flames and she went crashing down to the ground.

    The flames vanished yet again and she tried to stand up but Shadow was not about to let that come to pass. The tables had turned this time since now it was Shadow that fell to the ground and knelt before her! His body charged with energy much like Chun-Li's did earlier and there was a twinkle in his eye (like what happens prior to all of Shadow's Super Arts in MSH vs. SF). You guessed it, he performed his Final Mission Super Art! Smacking his former partner with a massive uppercut she went flying high up in the air. Next he jumped after her and all you could hear was the massive beatdown she was taking as everything was blanketed in a bright white light!

    Bruised, battered and bloody the young lady even had the misfortune of the back of her head landing on the floor first, right on the same area that was wounded during her fight with the Twelve Dolls! After the loud thud her body collapsed like a lifeless rag doll. Showing no signs of remorse Shadow landed and adjusted his jacket with both hands (just as he does after performing his Final Mission Super Art). His hands took on a robotic appearance once more and he started firing bullets at Chun-Li!

    Even though her eyes were closed and she seemed like she was in a deep sleep; was it her natural fighting instincts, her will to survive or the body of a woman who has trained extensively in Martial Arts acting on it's own? We may never know, however after hearing the first bullet being fired Chun-Li managed to get up and leap to her left away from all of the gunfire! She did not go unscathed however, a bullet grazed her right thigh! Another horrific yell escaped from her lips, if she wasn't fully awake before well she was now for certain! She fell to the floor one more time. With this new injury on top of all of her other wounds, there was no way she could avoid Shadow's bullets again.

    Shadow aimed his fingers at Chun-Li ready to end her existence.

    "...NASH! DON'T DO IT!" "Negative. My name is..." "NO! YOUR NAME IS NASH! The way... you move... and fight... You are exactly like the Nash I remember! Before you started this fight... you took off your glasses... and put them away... Just like you always do before a fight starts... You... don't even need glasses... You only wear them because you think they make you look cool..." "Negative... I have no interest... in silly human... characterisi..." "DON'T YOU SEE! THOSE ARE NOT ACTIONS OF A MINDLESS ROBOT! I KNOW YOU ARE STILL IN THERE NASH! YOU HAVE TO FIGHT WHAT VEGA HAS DONE TO YOU! YOU ARE THE HERO THAT SAVED US ALL! WAKE UP!"

    Shadow's body started to shiver. For the first time since he woke up after having his body remade into that of a cyborg's, he was confused and didn't know what to do. His orders were to exterminate anyone that went up against Shawdowloo, yet he was having trouble firing that last shots at his old comrade Chun-Li.

    In his state of confusion he plucked Chun-Li from the ground by her head only using the edges of his robotic looking fingers. With his fingers to the sides of her face, it was a lot easier to blow her head away at this range. His fingers were so tight around her head that she was bleeding from both sides, it was almost like he was trying to crush her head like a melon but that wasn't the case. His body continued to quiver and he was still in a state of utter confusion.

    Her eyes were dim and her vision started to blur, but her face was close enough so she could look into Shadow's eyes. In a whisper Chun-Li said, "Nash... don't... Nash..."

    Somehow, at that moment a streak of dark brown machine oil poured down the hole that was beneath Shadow's eye, from the injury she gave him from her bracelet. All of his bodily fluids have been replaced with one liquid substance or another. Much like we may never now exactly how Chun-Li's body rose up at the correct time to avoid the gunfire, Chun-Li will never know if this was just a coincidence or Shadow's attempt at shedding a tear.


    *******

    Info Bytes: You know, I avoided re-reading Udon's take on Chun-Li vs. Shadow, other than their dialog that I used in the previous chapter, yet there are still similarities! Her attacking Shadow with a Super Tenshou Kyaku was the only one I planned on as the nod to Udon that I mentioned earlier since I clearly remembered that move, (she used the regular Tenshou Kyaku in the comic) but after writing my chapter on paper first like I always do I rechecked it and noticed Chun-Li also attacks Shadow with a Crouching Medium Kick, he hits her with a Somersault and she jumps straight up in the air to avoid a Sonic Boom! ACK! Though I felt the sequence of events went down differently in my fight and if you for whatever reason don't believe me feel free to think I gave Studio Udon even more nods than I originally intended lol! Say, no one's ever done a comic where Captain America and Vega fought right? No! Hooray next time I'll be in the clear har har! Well there are still differences, I made Shadow much more robotic then he was in their comic, just like he is during MSH vs. SF, and in his ending he REALLY looks like a robot but I didn't go that far lol! It's also similar to Shadow Lady in Marvel vs. Capcom too given how robotic she is. His body doesn't clang when you hit him the way Spider-Armor Spider-Man does, so I was having a bit of fun with Chun-Li's punch to his chest. Plus, his moves in MSH vs. SF are a little different from the way Udon depicted them, he really does set you on light blue fire with his attacks. I was very close to giving him the Shadowloo symbol on the back of his jacket the way that Udon did, but I stopped because you can't see that in his sprite when he shows his back. Of course his body is really dark, but still. Well, I didn't say it wasn't there so if you want to imagine it there in my story don't let me stop you. ^_^

    Next Up: Arg, didn't exactly get up to Captain America vs. Vega this time like I wanted to. Maaang, I can say what I think is going to happen next but I never know how long these things are going to turn out until I start writing them. I can at least guarantee that Captain America and Vega will fight in the next installment! Hopefully I can wrap up Chun-Li vs. Shadow and get to those guess stars I promised last time. I have an extra day off thanks to the Holiday so I'm really gonna push to get this done next weekend, then I can segway into monthly installments for a time. Hmmm, I tend to end these with either an "Excelsior!" or a "Soyanara!" but, I dunno - "FACE FRONT!" is kind of growing on me. Doesn't help that I'm currently reading a lot of old Stan Lee Spider-Man stories... So until next time... Face Front! :P

    Progress report - About 90% of the next chapter is written up already. Gonna push to get it up next weekend. It will probably be broken up into two parts.

    Oh yeah, edited one of my earlier Info Bytes where I said Cody was in jail. I forgot that in one of the MSH vs. SF backgrounds he's in his regular Final Fight clothes with Jessica... Now I just have him on the run from the authorities. So here he's in his plain clothes too during all of this, I'd imagine! I'm still not gonna try to explain that image of Rockman AKA Mega Man in one of the backgrounds with him being from the future and all, I'm gonna take a stab at this and guess Capcom wasn't aware that they'd eventually put him in the Marvel franchise lol! Ah, by the end of the story Cody will be in jail though I can tell you that much without spoiling a heck of a lot... Ack why am I editing an Info Byte when it's not part of the actual story? Best way to describe Sano at times like this, like Mary Jane Watson told Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3, "You are such a nerd!" :rofl:

    Pointless update #2 - Okay everything is written out on paper, it came out to 26 written pages! So give me a week or two so I can toss everything up. This should end what I'm dubbing the "Madripoor arc" so then I can move on to the "New York arc" lol! Watching too much anime... :rofl:

    Chapter 10: "Thumbs Up Psycho Soldier!" Part 1

    "PSYCHO CRUSHER!"

    "CHARGING STAR!"

    Right off the bat these two came at each other with their very powerful Super Arts! Vega's body was covered with light blue energy. His left hand clutched his right forearm that was before his body. His open right palm radiated with power. Flying a few feet above the ground while he rotated he was heading straight towards the Marvel Super Hero.

    While Captain America may have said Charging Star this was actually his Hyper Charging Star, a much more powerful variant than the one he used to defeat Noembulu moments ago. He charged forward with his shield in front his entire body was engulfed in white Ki. From a distance he looked like a bullet leaving a trail of white energy.

    Vega's right hand slammed into the star that was at the center of the Captain's shield causing quite an impact, covering their nearby surroundings in a shade of white that had a small hint of blue. It was quite the explosion that these twin Super Arts caused!

    And the winner of this face off, was Captain America! The Shadowloo Leader's Psycho Crusher didn't stand a chance against the Avengers Leader's Adamantium and Vibranium shield, two of the hardest alloys known to man! Add this to the fact that Steve Rogers is stronger than the average man and was using the full extent of his Ki and you can see why he was off to a great start! Vega's hand was pushed back by the shield and the armament rammed into his face! Being pushed away he did a back flip in the air and floated to the floor gently landing on his feet. The caped villain gritted his teeth while a small stream of blood trickled out of the side of his mouth.

    "PSYCHO SHOT!"

    "SHIELD SLASH!"

    Yet another face off of two moves from the adversaries who were currently seventeen feet away, and this time it was their projectile attacks! Vega sent a ball of light purple energy at the costumed crime fighter, who in turn used his Light Punch Shield Slash which travels a few inches off the ground, the shield went under and past Vega's Psycho Shot! Unexpectedly Captain America dashed straight at his enemy's projectile!

    Was Captain America some kind of masochist? I think not! At the last possible second he avoided the ball of power with his Zenten. "AH," yelled the soldier while doing a carton wheel to the side of the Psycho Shot avoiding the blow. And after that he kept on rolling right on to his opponent!

    The low shield came at a rather blind spot for Vega, underneath his own bright fireball and at the incredibly fast pace it was traveling, he didn't spot it until after in struck his feet! Like a tree downed by a lumberjack he was about to fall flat on his face!

    Course not too far away from his classic right white and blue cylinder was the owner, the speedy Captain himself! Catching his shield with his left hand he stood right before the diabolical terrorist! Not even letting him fall the floor he caught him with his Double Kick which is composed of a left kick to the head and another to the stomach! You may ask why he caught his shield with his left hand instead of his right this time. Well that's because he was gearing up for one of his favorite moves, heck this is a favorite move of the majority of American Super Heroes! You guessed it, a right punch to the face!

    With the American icon's above average strength the blow created a thunderous noise! He instantly broke Vega's nose, splitting it in two so it took on the appearance of a boomerang! Never having been punched that hard in his life, in the evil man's mind it felt like he was being punched in slow motion! Spit flew out of his mouth like a boxer catching a strong right hook. Even so, Vega still managed to bounce back from this punch pretty fast considering the circumstances. "Heh," uttered the current Apocalypse underling while the corner of his lip curled up. With his right thumb he snapped his nose back in to place and it looked just as it did before! The mighty hero attempted to strike him with his shield next but he missed because the target vanished before his eyes!

    After performing his Vega Warp, there where four Vegas around Cap and he didn't know which was the real one. Each of them had their hands folded and were in a grand standing position. There was one right in front of him and another floating above that one, and there was another floating behind him with yet another one floating above that one. Cap's head turned to quickly glance at all four but he decided to go for the one in front of him thinking that the least obvious choice would be the correct answer, and it was the easiest target for him to take a shielded swing at. But before he could even connect the one that was floating above his back called him "BAKA," AKA stupid in Japanese, a term he had heard from Japanese soldiers during World War II more times than he could count. Following the sound he turned to face that Vega with the remarkable speed that he was best known for. He was still too late as the other three Vegas vanished and his adversary rammed his two feet on top of Captain America's cranium with his Head Stomp!

    Steve Rogers was dazed by the blow and Vega then performed his favorite follow up to his Head Stomp, his Somersault Skull Diver! Finally tossing his shield from his left hand to his right, he raised it above his head like an umbrella without a pole stopping the attack of the Psycho charged hand. Still aerial Vega performed his Hikou and levitated high up, about 30 feet and flew backwards looking down on the foe he thought was beneath him in every single way.

    Captain America jumped after him and rose 15 feet diagonally, and Chun-Li wasn't the only one who could perform a Double Jump! Bringing his knees to his chest he cleared the remaining 15 feet and he was rising until he got just before Vega's waist coming in fast!

    A mighty Aerial High Punch from the Horseman of War smacked Chun-Li's current partner in the head setting him on light blue flames, just like Shadow did to Chun-Li earlier! He struck him in the same spot where he got him with his Head Stomp moments ago. Vega took pleasure that his knuckles were covered with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent's blood that had seeped through his blue costume. A second after that punch the deadly foe sent an Aerial High Kick to the top of his head! He came flying down to the ground at an eight o'clock angle.

    And who was there to catch Captain America upon his descent? Chun-Li? Another hero who had entered the scene? No! Vega himself! he teleported to the floor and caught the star spangled shoulder by the back of his neck with one hand!

    With his right hand he had Captain America in the air and charged his entire body with raw Psycho Power! This was quite a sight to see. While he was being burned with light blue fire he was being electrocuted with light purple energy, both at the same time! The electrocution was so strong that at times you could see parts of his very skeleton! Captain America was in excruciating pain, however he was not one to yell out in agony. This wasn't the first time he has been tortured by an enemy and it was far from the last.

    "HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! The mighty Captain America! After all of your missions, after all of your adventures, this is how it all ends! You will fall at the hands of Shadowloo! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

    And at that moment, Captain America's survival instinct kicked in! He is usually very careful not to strike people with the razor sharp edge of his shield, the rounded part tends to strike first unless you tilt it the right way. Still, in this dire situation he paid no attention to that and swung his shield behind him just below Vega's chest, slashing him like a sword would! About a third of the shield entered Vega's body! "AAAAAAAH," yelled the wounded Street Fighter who fell to the floor. Such a wound was a fatal and any man who didn't receive medical attention on the spot had small chance of surviving this rather deep and long sword like slash!

    Once he dropped the American hero he fell to his knees, finding it hard to breath. After a few seconds, he noticed half of this shield covered in Vega's blood. The star on it's center was cut right down the center, one half was fine and the other half took on a crimson hue. "NO... I Couldn't... VEGA!"

    He turned to face Vega on the floor, who wasn't moving at all. His eyes were wide open and so was his mouth. There was blood everywhere, his bleeding wasn't stopping any time soon. In an odd way, he almost looked like he was at peace. Maybe, for the first time in his life.

    "Vega... I was only... trying to get you to drop me... I didn't mean... You may have been a monster, but even you deserved a fair trial to atone for your crimes. Rest in Peace, and may your sins be forgiven in the next world."

    Captain was quite angry with himself. Even though he has killed in the past in times of war it was always something he tried to avoid at any cost. Regardless, he had to put his feelings to the side for now since Chun-Li needed his help. So he started to dart off towards his partner.

    "Huh huh huh huh..."

    His red boots froze dead in his tracks when he heard Vega's laughter. He looked back to make sure and Vega was still in the same motionless condition.

    "No... My mind... must be playing tricks on me."

    So he went to run once more but before he could take another step, he heard laughter once more. This time it was a little louder than the last.

    "Huh Huh Huh Huh..."

    He turned to face his fallen foe one more time. He was still on the floor, not moving so much as an inch. A few bone chilling seconds passed and Vega's lips widened to become a grand smile. The imagery was enough to give a weaker man nightmares for the rest of his days.

    "Huh huh huh huh... Huh Huh Huh Huh... HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

    Yes, now he was full on laughing! The fourth lord of Shadowloo stood up all the while chuckling away! The slash across his chest turned light blue and when this bright light was gone, so was the damage to his body! The slash on his clothes was even gone and the blood from his body evaporated in a split second! It looked as if Captain America hadn't struck him once during their entire battle!

    "It seems the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

    "Just... What are you? Some kind of demon?"

    "Heh. I've been called worse! So long as there is evil in this world my immortal soul can not be destroyed! Frankly, you are quite a strong adversary. If this was a year ago, I don't think I would be able to defeat you. However, when my body was repaired and in this new shell I gained more power than I had ever possessed! I was fighting you at the same level of strength I had when I fought against Cyclops. I see that I will have to use the full extent of my powers to finish you off! C'MON CAPTAIN AMERICA! Give me your best shot!" He put his clenched fist to his side and stuck his chest out, ready to take on anything his enemy could dish out.

    "CHARGING STAR!" Once again he came at Vega with his Hyper Charging Star Super Art! When the white Ki that surrounded Captain America's body struck his foe's chest, it created a bright white explosion blanketing all!

    When the light died down and everything returned to normal, Vega was standing there and hadn't budged at all! Captain America's attack had no effect on him! With his shield brushing against Vega's chest, his pupils widened while he saw Vega in an entirely different light. The Horseman of War's smile turned into a frown at the drop of a hat. "So this is your strongest move? I thought you were also holding back a moment ago. Now I am very disappointed, Captain America."

    With his High Punch Vega dealt him a mighty uppercut, sending him high in the sky with this Aerial Launcher. Once again our hero was set ablaze and electrocuted at the same time, and now you could see his entire skeleton throughout! Such was the power that Vega was wielding. One punch had the same effect as him grabbing on to you and charging you with Raw Psycho Power, only know the attack was more intense! Captain America had never experienced such pain in his entire life! It felt like every single fiber of his body was being attacked all at once! His teeth bleed from him grinding them so hard. Still even with all this pain he would never scream out in pain, never. Cap flipped up high in the air and landed on the hard metallic ground face first!

    As soon as he tried to stumble on his feet, Vega teleported in front of him and rammed his right foot to the back of his head, slamming his face against the harsh cold floor for a second time! "Kneel before Shadowloo! You will crumble beneath my feet and so will your precious United States. And soon the entire world will follow!

    "No... Freedom... Will... PREVAIL!"

    Captain America managed to lift his head somewhat while struggling against Vega's boot. With his mighty shield still at hand, he summoned all of his remaining energy to perform his "STARS AND STRIPES!" He rose several feet in the air with this deadly twirling uppercut that was identical to a Shoryuken only with his armament in hand.

    Unfortunately, he missed because Vega teleported away at the precise moment! Not only had he performed his Vega Warp once again, this time it was on an entirely different level. During the Stars And Stripes maneuver while the Captain was still in the air, he saw what looked to be hundreds of Vegas floating all around him, one above the other! All of them wore serious expressions on their faces while folding their arms, and each of them let out the same word. It sounded like audience of thousands speaking in unison. "BAKA," every last one of them uttered just before vanishing, except for the real Vega!

    The real Vega who was high above his head nabbed him with his Somersault Skull Driver! His right hand went right over Cap's face electrocuting and frying him yet again! An explosion of Psycho Power emerged when he rammed Cap's back to the floor!

    When the smoke cleared, our hero laid still on what looked to be a crater, only filled with small metallic cracks all around. His blood came from behind him and poured all around the cracks of this circle that surrounded his body; this almost looked like a bizarre occult sacrifice. Captain American couldn't move a single muscle, yet he still remained conscious. True to nature, not a single scream escaped from his lips.

    Now standing before his fallen enemy, he still housed a serious expression. After contemplating a bit, Vega spoke to the downed veteran.

    "You and I are a lot alike. We are both soldiers of war. In fact, I have fought in many wars throughout countless generations. There were times I took over the entire world and there were other times I came very close, though just like you I've fought hard to preserve my ideals and way of living."

    Captain America's mind wandered back to a time during World War II, when he spotted Adolf Hitler in a German base that was being attacked by American soldiers. Adolf Hitler cowardly abandoned his men and tried to escape through a secret exit. He was intercepted by a younger Captain America. His outfit was a little different in that his neck was exposed and he wielded a triangular shield, but you could tell it was the same great American icon. With his shield in his left hand he gave Hitler a well deserved right hook to the face knocking him out in one blow! Behind Cap approached Nazi soldiers, firing there weapons upon him. In the center of the four soldiers was his arch nemesis, the Red Skull! As his name implies, his face was really that of a red skull. A gigantic Nazi symbol was marked smacked dab on the center of the chest of his green outfit, you could see it from miles away. While their tommy guns fired the greatest war hero the world has ever known charged right at them while deflecting every blow with his shield.

    Back to the present, our downed soldier stops reminiscing and responds to his enemy.

    "No. We are nothing alike. You and Apocalypse are cut from the same cloth. Men with delusions of grandeur bent on world domination. You are the same kind of men I fought during the war and continue to fight to this very day."

    "I will admit, being soldiers of fortune is where our similarities end. Who knows, you may have had the power to defeat me. If only your Ki was developed as well as my Psycho Power."

    "My... Ki?"

    "Captain America, you have trained in multiple forms of Martial Arts. However, for you at the end of the day it's just a means to an end. All substance over style. In combat you utilize techniques to take down your opponents as quickly as possible letting most of your training go to waist. You only release your Ki during powerful attacks, like your 'Charging Stars,' but even then it is all in one shot, in order to defeat your opponent quickly. It's similar to how you became Captain America. Instead of going through extensive training to enhance your body you took the Super Soldier Serum and became a warrior overnight. You find the quickest routes to achieve your goals. Myself, Psycho Power is quite the opposite. It flows in every single one of my moves. I train every day to perfect my Psycho Power. There is no quick fix, only hard work and sacrifice."

    Vega continued, "Ki flows through all things, it is the perfect rival for my Psycho Power which comes from the evil that dwells in the hearts of man. Had you developed that power, with your enhanced strength the outcome of this battle may have been quite different."

    The boasting villain looked across the room to see Shadow still clutching Chun-Li's head in his hands. Finally smiling, he proclaimed "That man over there is quite the exception. Not only has he perfected his Ki, he's even invented his own style of Martial Arts. Such a man is rare in the United States Military, and now he is a member of Shadowloo!"

    Holding his right hand, the deadly villain began to charge his body for his next Psycho charged attack.

    Info Bytes: Captain America punching out Hilter and his costume and shield being described as looking different is a not to his first comic book appearance several years ago in 1941 (before Marvel itself existed). Here's the cover I was referencing.

    Next Up: The conclusion of both of Captain America and Chun-Li's fights! A flashback of two character's first meeting! And those Marvel and SF Zero guess stars I mentioned way back will show up! I have next week off from work so it's a good bet that everything will be up then. Remember like Cap always says, "DREAMS DON'T DIE!"

    Edit: I accidentally posted Chapter 10 twice in the last post, and that's why I thought I exceeded SRK's word limit but I didn't, at least not this time ha ha! Well everything is in Chapter 10 in one part now on the last page instead of me splitting it up into 2 chapters. The conclusion of "Thumbs Up Psycho Soldier!" will be coming next, which will be the real "Thumbs Up Psycho Soldier Part 2" like I originally intended. I'm heading back to finish up the spell check for Chapter 10 and everything should be good. :smile:

    Chapter 11: "Thumbs Up Psycho Soldier!" Part 2

    Chun-Li tried to speak to Shadow but could only manage a few whispers while trying to maintain consciousness. Her head was still clutched within his powerful grasp, and similarly he also held Chun-Li's fate in his hands as well. "Nash... Don't you remember... when we first met..."

    Astonishingly, Chun-Li's words caused this memory to flow right to the front of Shadow's mind. He started to recall that day which occurred a few months ago.

    In a dreary, barely lit weapons warehouse in the Frankfort, Kentucky Nash had a rather large table sprawled out before him. He sported a five o'clock shadow and there were heavy black lines under his eyes. It looked like he hadn't slept or shaved in a while. Standing over yet leaning on the map with his hands on both sides he belted out orders to the other three men that were around him, all dressed in standard military attire.

    "When we infiltrate this Shadowloo Base in Cambodia, we should also set up explosives here, here and here. That should send the entire fort crashing down."

    "HEY NASH GOTTA SURPRISE FOR YA!" "HENDERSON! You are supposed to be keeping watch outside," responded Nash to the fourth soldier who just walked in the warehouse. "Yeah but you're girlfriend just showed up. You've been riding us pretty hard lately man figured you REALLY need the company..."

    "My... girlfriend?"

    "Hi honey!"

    Nash saw the most beautiful woman he had ever laid eyes on running towards him. She had a pretty red chinese dress that exposed her shoulders. She also had long dark hair that flowed down her back. Before Nash could react she gave him a big hug and a kiss on the cheek!

    Still hugging Nash the young woman spoke, "I missed you darling! When are you coming home? We're supposed to go to the Pocono's soon, remember?"

    Nash was blushing and his heart was beating fast as he could feel her cleavage against his. "HA HA HA THAT BOY IS WHOOPED," exclaimed Henderson. The other three men continued to laugh right along with him.

    "I've... NEVER MET THIS WOMAN IN MY LIFE," yelled Nash, who quickly shoved the young lady off of him. "What... but then how did she know where... A SPY!" Henderson finally realized. Himself and the other three soldiers pulled out their pistols ready to fire! The mysterious lady leaped high up in the air, faster than the eyes of anyone there could follow! The next time they saw her was when she fell to the floor after this huge quick change back flip. Nash and the other four men saw who we all know as Chun-Li wearing her Street Fighter Zero outfit, jogging pants, sneakers and all! She stretched out her right hand to her side and down fell the chinese dress she was wearing moments ago right into her palm, and it was neatly folded at that! The black wig she was wearing fell on top of Henderson's head, right on top of the green cap he was wearing, and boy did he look goofy! Nash, the only man who was unarmed raised his fists. But before he could do anything a wallet fell from out of the sky and onto his head! After it bounced off his cranium he caught it and took a gander inside.

    "ICPO... Chun-Li... Guys, lay your guns down. We've been found out."

    He tossed the wallet to Chun-Li who dropped her folded dress on the floor to catch it. Next she placed the wallet into the right pocket of her pants.

    "But... NASH!" "HENDERSON! I SAID PUT IT DOWN!" Henderson lowered his gun and angrily tossed the wig on the floor. The rest of the men also lowered their arms.

    "Interpol finally caught on to our operation, taking down Shadowloo strongholds piece by piece. I suppose you have a full armada coming down to take us all in," said Nash.

    "Actually no. I came by myself." "By, yourself?"

    "Nash, I know that you and your men are working in secret to take down Shadowloo, because that terrorist organization has corrupted the United States Military and they won't make a single move against them. Shadowloo has also infiltrated Interpol, so I am faced with a similar problem. My father... has disappeared and no one in Interpol is allowed to chase after Shadowloo, the organization I believe kidnapped my father. Nash, I wish to help you in any way I can. I have a few connections at Interpol still. I can help keep your operation secret if you'll let me."

    "Nash... I don't know... Think we should trust her," Henderson asked.

    Nash gazed into her eyes, you might even say he saw past her eyes and looked deep into her soul. He was an excellent judge of character.

    "Those eyes... those are not the eyes of a dishonest woman. Welcome aboard, Agent Chun-Li!"

    Chun-Li smiled, stood up straight and gave Nash a salute. "Tee hee! Special Agent Chun-Li at your service First Lieutenant!" Seeing Chun-Li's salute, Nash smiled. It was the first time in weeks that he seemed genuinely happy. "Hmph. We're informal around here. It's just Nash." The two shook hands and this is how their partnership and friendship began.

    Now we shift back to the present which just may be the very end of their partnership and friendship.

    "You... were... wearing... a red... dress..."

    The young girl's eyes widened, surprised that Shadow was able to recall that much! She was still in excruciating pain so she responded softly, "Y-y-y-yes... and remember... you're best friend Guile?" "G..G...G...Guile..."

    A myriad of images representing Guile flashed before his eyes. He remembered training Guile, playing pool with him, drinking at bars and the many times they were in combat together. He was indeed, Nash's best friend.

    Chun-Li's two hands trembled until they rested on both sides of Shadow's head. While Shadow was holding Chun-Li's head harshly, she was gently caressing his. "You... tried to keep Guile away from Shadowloo for his own safety... Yet he still wound up being captured by them in the end. Guile was so sad... when he thought you died... Nash... he was captured by Vega... the man you are working for.... Please... Help us... save Guile..." Chun-Li's hands dropped and she was out like a light once again.

    "NEGATIVE... MY NAME... IS... SHA... SHA... SHAD..."

    "NIGHTMARE KNEE!"

    Meanwhile on the other side of the room, three Vegas appeared and each of them kicked the Captain America that was laying on the floor during this Knee Press Nightmare Super Art! Upon impact an incredible surge of Light Blue Energy blinded everything and the heavily wounded soldier went soaring back!

    "SHAD... SHAD... SHAD... ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"

    The now very confused Agent Shadow spun around a few times still holding Chun-Li's head in his hands like a child abusing a doll during a temper tantrum! When he stopped spinning he tossed Chun-Li away and she just happened to crash right into the soaring Captain America! Both of them landed on the floor and had lost consciousness.

    Vega teleported behind Shadow and a few feet to his left. Their backs were now facing the large door Captain America and Chun-Li entered through earlier on, only to it's far left. The heroes remained on the floor approximately 30 feet away from Shadow and Vega.

    "Excellent work Shadow! Allow me to finish them off once and for all with a more powerful version of my Psycho Crusher!"

    Like a scarecrow caught in a twister, Vega put his arms to the side and started spinning around like a top. During this rotation he was covered with light blue Psycho Power energy from head to toe (just like his Psycho Crusher pre-charge he performed in the Street Fighter II V anime). Standing straight up and spinning, he was gathering all of his energy for his strongest move yet!

    And while he was charging his power, his words "Allow me to finish them off once and for all..." continued to echo over and over again in Shadow's mind like a broken record. "Tee hee! Special Agent Chun-Li at your service First Lieutenant!" Chun-Li's words to him when they first met also resonated in his mind. He even recalled Chun-Li introducing Ryu and Ken to him (back during X-Men vs. Street Fighter) -

    "I'd like you guys to meet my partner..." and before she could make a proper introduction Ken ran up to the man walking behind Chun-Li and shook his hand. "Wow! The famous Nash! I'm Ken Masters. I wish you would've competed in this year's US Martial Arts Tournament. The competition was pretty lame this year." "Ah, unfortunately I was called away on duty. Perhaps next year we can meet up in the final match." "I'll look forward to it, Nash!"

    Next he recalled the words he spoke to Gambit, (also during X-Men vs. Street Fighter) when he told him "I also plan on living a long time." Then he remembered the moment he took down Apocalypse and went soaring down a huge pit with his arm wrapped around his enemy's snapped neck, all while his friend Guile was screaming "NASH! NAAAAASH!" While Guile screams couldn't be heard at the time by most since he was in a glass capsule, somehow the words of his best friend managed to reach Nash's mind at that time, this was likely due to their strong and everlasting friendship. And finally, he remembered what Chun-Li yelled at him moments ago. "YOU ARE THE HERO THAT SAVED US ALL! WAKE UP!"

    After hearing that yell in his mind one more time, almost on cue all of his memories returned to him!

    Vega stopped rotating and stood there for a while charging his right hand with Psycho Power.

    "PSYCHO CRUSHER!"

    Sadly, it seemed that Nash's memories had returned to him much too late! Vega's new Psycho Crusher was MASSIVE! As he floated high up in the sky, light blue energy covered ten feet above him and ten feet below him! It was similar to the white streak that Captain America's Hyper Charging Star left, only it DWARFED that move by comparison! (Yes, this is Final Vega's powerful Shin Psycho Crusher that takes up the entire screen in Street Fighter Zero 3!) He went spinning and flying towards Captain America and Chun-Li! The two heroes did open their eyes, just in time to see massive wave of power heading towards their way! They may have been better off remaining asleep! Like two deers frozen by the headlights of an approaching vehicle, both of them knew that there was no escape and their lives were about to come to an end.

    "SELF DESTRUCT PROGRAM, INITIATE!"

    After saying these words segments on Nash's chest started to flash red, and electricity of the same color covered his entire body! Running extremely quick, he caught up to Vega and jumped on his back, causing him to stop spinning! Almost like performing the Heimlich Maneuver, he wrapped his arms around Vega's mid section and hoisted him up in the air, lifting the soaring villain just high enough so his wave of Psycho Power would pass right above Captain America and Chun-Li missing them completely! That's not all, the red electricity that was pouring out of his body was frying Vega, and the collision of that energy and his Psycho Power created a purple globe that covered the two men who continued to fly forward! Vega had inserted a very strong self destruct mechanism inside of Shadow just in case he was ever captured by an enemy. However, little did he know that it would lead to his downfall!

    In incredible pain while being fried by this power and still flying forward, Vega yelled "SHADOW! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" Chun-Li, also worried about her former partner yelled "SHADOW!"

    Still holding Vega, Nash turned his head as much as he could and yelled back with a smile, "NEGATIVE. MY NAME IS NASH! CHUN-LI, CAPTAIN AMERICA, TAKE CARE OF GUILE FOR ME!"

    At that moment, Nash's dog tag snapped off his neck and went flying back. Captain America raised his left hand just in time so he could catch it.

    Nash forced Vega's soaring body more to the right so they would collide smack dab in the center of the gigantic door that was on the farthest end of the room! Once the door crashed down Captain America and Chun-Li could make out what looked like a rather tall man standing there with long white hair, but beyond all of the light blue energy of the Psycho Power it was really hard to see clearly. Both of them naturally assumed it was Magneto, and he was the Mutant who was controlling the Island Smasher in that room.

    Sporting a grin that could only be worn by someone who's had the weight of the world lifted off of his shoulders, Nash closed his eyes and thought to himself. "Chun-Li. Before I met you I was obsessed with taking down Shadowloo, to the point where I wasn't eating or sleeping. Just by your introduction, you taught me not to always take things so seriously and to learn how to relax now and then. This is the second time you've saved my life Chun-Li. Thank you."

    Nash's body self destructed and caused a gigantic explosion destroying the entire room that housed the Island Smasher! Nash's body instantly vanished in the explosion and Vega's body was torn to shreds! "THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE! I AM IMMORTAL! I CAN NOT BE DESTROYED! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Vega's limbs and his entire body went flying off in different directions and pretty soon not a single shred of Vega was left(just like what happens during the majority of Street Fighter zero 3 endings)!

    "NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH," yelled Chun-Li as tears flowed down her face! Using only her elbows as she was still on the ground and found it hard to move, she tried to edge herself closer to the room that just exploded. Of course this was an exercise in futility but her emotions got the best of her.

    With the room that housed the Island Smasher destroyed and the person who was controlling it taken out of commission, the Magnetic Force field that surrounded the temple finally disappeared. Outside, the missiles that were fired by various airplanes got through and the temple was being destroyed!

    Bit by bit the ceiling started to fall down around Captain America and Chun-Li, the base was rumbling since it was under attack. Chun-Li was oblivious to this fact and kept edging herself closer to the room where Nash exploded with Vega, even if she wasn't making much progress.

    "CHUN-LI! THIS BASE IS ABOUT TO BE DESTROYED! YOU'RE FRIEND IS GONE! WE HAVE TO LEAVE NOW," urged Captain America. "NO... NASH!"

    Captain America who was still lying on the floor sprinted his body as close as he could and with the same left hand that held Nash's dog tag he grabbed Chun-Li's right hand. Silently, he said the word "Bamf" while tapping his neck and both teleported away while Chun-Li was still crying and yelling "NAAAAASH!" Seconds later, missile fire destroyed the entire floor.

    Captain America and Chun-Li were whisked away to the same Teleporter they used back at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier earlier on. Both were on the floor of the circular Teleporter's center. Chun-Li was crying and trembling.

    The doctors at the S.H.I.E.L.D. base went running towards the two. One of the doctors yelled, "CAPTAIN AMERICA! CHUN-LI! SOMEONE GRAB A STRETCHER, QUICK!" Stumbling, Captain America managed to rise to his feet. "I'll be able to walk myself to the infirmary. Look after Chun-Li." As he took a few steps, Chun-Li was already being placed on a stretcher and was being tended to. She closed her eyes and went to sleep.

    While everyone's attention was on Chun-Li, no one noticed Captain America shedding tears. He hadn't walked really far, just a few feet left of the Teleporter. He clutched Nash's dog tag tightly in his left palm, where it still remained.

    "I swore... after Bucky... Never again... Nash, I'm going to save Guile if it's the last thing I do."

    Several white dots swirled around Captain America's body when he uttered these words. He wasn't aware of this at time, but his strong desire never to lose anyone else on the battlefield even though he couldn't stop Nash's death took his Ki to a whole other level. Still clutching Nash's dog tag he slammed the side of his fist into the metallic wall beside him in anger. After that, he proceeded to walk to the infirmary. Soon the dots of Ki that encircled him were gone. The other thing that Captain America wasn't aware of was the small crack he left on the wall he punched thanks to his Ki.


    *******

    Info Bytes: My description of how Nash and Chun-Li met is based on how they officially met, only I fleshed out the story here. Though yes she did pretend to be his girlfriend to infiltrate a weapons warehouse in Frankfurt, Kentucky that he was working in to take down Shadowloo.

    Lots of flashbacks to my X-Men vs. Street Fighter fic here, so for those who hadn't read it please do so! I hope it still kind of works without having read it though, I think at this point it's tricky for me to recap everything for those who hadn't checked it, since this really is a direct sequel. Ah, the link to X-Men vs. SF is still in the first post in this thread heh. ^_^;

    Chun-Li's quick change here is inspired by the fast costume change she performed in the "Sakura Ganbaru!" manga, where Chun-Li also changed out of a chinese dress and had long hair quickly, manga/anime style lol! There she changed into her SF2 outfit, but in this story I had Chun-Li change into her SFZ outfit since it was her first meeting with Nash and all. Besides during my X-Men vs. SF fic she was wearing the SFZ outfit before anyway.

    Always loved that spin Vega did during Street Fighter II V to charge up his Psycho Crusher, I wanted to include that in my X-Men vs. Street Fighter fan fic but couldn't find the opportunity. LOL if you can't tell by now SF2 The Animated Movie and SF2V are the two anime that influence everything I do since I like them both a lot. Anyway, Vega just performed a Super Art on Captain America so I figured he could use that SF2V spin so he could "Whiff" his Super Meter back to perform his powerful SFZ3 Psycho Crusher. Hey it beats me writing about him punching the air a bunch of times ROFL!

    Nash of course had to die and take out Vega here (I've killed him in every Capcom fan fic I've written and will continue to do so ha ha) since I am telling the story of SFZ3 here. Oh, in MSH vs. SF if you lose a match with Shadow in MSH vs. SF, he will actually explode and leave no corpse so that's where the self destruct idea came from.

    Yeah I wouldn't worry too much about Nash really. You know he survived this! Last I checked, Shadow can be spotted in MVC1 and Nash is in MVC2. Ditto for Vega, who heck has to return for SF2 and a few days ago it's been confirmed that he's coming back in SF4! I can't show you all of my cards this soon but alls I can say is don't lose too much sleep over either of them in this world. Oh and hey, if all else fails this story is at least 1/2 based on Marvel comics. Death means NOTHING in Marvel comics, a lot of dead people in Marvel comics come back to life sooner or later. :P


    *******

    Next Up: A rather small chapter, which I would of just included with this chapter but I figured the Nash / Vega death thing was a good time to break things off. The next installment will wrap up this "Madripoor Arc." This is all typed already and I just have to copy and paste, so check back here a little later today. ^_^

    Chapter 12: "One Door in Madripoor Closes and Another One Opens!"

    Back in Madripoor a short woman who appeared to be a preteen with long white hair that had two crest buns on each side, wearing a light purple dress that had a small skirt exposing brown pantyhose on her shapely legs stood on top of a tall skyscraper in Hightown. Ingrid watched the temple in Madripoor being destroyed by the fighter jets that swarmed around it. She had arrived a few minutes after Captain America and Chun-Li teleported away. The temple itself was being reduced to mere ruins.

    Ingrid thought back to a couple of weeks ago. Outside of the Palace of Mystery in Italy she had just had a fight with Rose (The Palace of Mystery is Rose's Street Fighter Zero 3 background). Ingrid stood there looking at her opponent inquisitively and Rose was in her fighting stance breathing heavily. As powerful as Rose was in her own right, Ingrid was quite a match for her.

    "I can't see your future. Or your past. All I see is a white haze. Who are you? And why are you after Vega?" Rose wanted to know. Ingrid responded, "You have the power to read the streams of time, don't you? Interesting. All I'm at liberty to say is that Vega is on the verge of destroying the entire world. I have to stop him before that comes to pass." "I... have faced Vega in the past. He is quite formidable." "It shouldn't take me more than fifteen minutes to get rid of Vega. Though it's quite a nuisance. There are only certain gaps in time that I'm allowed to intervene. Or I'll create irreparable damage to the Space Time Continuum or something like that, sigh..."

    After sighing Ingrid turned to walk away. "Who are you? I still can't see your future." "Remember me as a messenger from the stars... Fate has different plans for you Rose and I've already helped set you on the right path. Farewell, Rose." Smiling to herself while waving by with two fingers behind her back and not meeting Rose's gaze, she left her with the parting words "Hang in there," and after a burst of warm light she disappeared.

    "Setting me... on the right path..." after saying that, Rose finally collapsed as the wounds she endured during her fight with Ingrid had finally taken their toll. Moments later, Magneto appeared above her floating in his Magnetic Force Field. This was the exact moment that Rose was captured, prior to the X-Men vs. Street Fighter event.

    If Ingrid hadn't worn down Rose, who knows she may have defeated or have fled from Magneto in time. If it wasn't for Rose's capture, she couldn't of aided Professor X in stopping the X-Men and Street Fighters from fighting each other when they first met. Who knows if they would of even teamed up in the first place if not for Rose's help. Perhaps Ingrid did set Rose on the right path indeed, all while gathering a little more information on Vega.

    Ingrid continued to watch the temple go up in smoke. "I no longer feel Vega's presence. Looks like I showed up late to the party. Ah well, there's one more loose end I have to tie up before this assignment is over." Ingrid jumped off the building and after another burst of warm light in the air she was gone yet again.


    *******

    Info Bytes: Since Ingrid was the last wrinkle that Capcom had tossed into the SFZ3 saga with the SFZ3 PSP game, I wanted to include her in this world, at the very least give her a small part. Another reason is that I just like the character and I am selfishly playing with as many toys as I can get my hands on in this self made castle of sand ha ha!

    Most of her dialog comes from the English translation of the dialog she had with Rose in the game, although any references to Vega using her power or power that comes from her crests have been removed. If you still feel that is the case game-wise, feel free since I'm not contradicting that, I'm just not mentioning it since it would give Ingrid a larger part than I can kind of allow since she wasn't in any of the Marvel/Capcom games after all lol!

    Another reason I gave her an entry is that it was kind of convenient for me. Rose vs. Vega is a battle that's difficult for me to tell here, but it's at least one of the major events of the SFZ saga. So I had Rose mention they had fought before at least, which would be their SFZ1/2 match. In Rose's SFZ2 ending, she wins the fight. I'm not going to stress who won the fight here (I don't want to give Vega another loss now officially...) but of course, even if she won in this world Vega wasn't at his SFZ3 level prior to this story, he would of been at the level he was when he fought Cyclops, so to speak.

    Ah and I got to show how Rose got captured in the first place, so it was a nice window for me to show a bit of the past. I won't be showing how every character got captured prior to X-Men vs. SF or MSH vs. SF, but I will show a lot more down the road.

    There is yet another reason why I included Ingrid since it helps me tie up yet another loose end in SFZ3, but she won't show up again until waaay later, during the epilogue. At the rate I'm going, well that won't be until '09 or later ha ha!


    *******

    Next Up: You've just read Chapter 12, so now get ready for Chapter Zero! That's right, I'm going so slow I'm actually going backwards ROFL! Next time we will see from Apocalypse's perspective what happened after his defeat in X-Men vs. Street Fighter leading up to the Amazon's Temple's disappearance like what happened in the beginning of this story, Vega explained a lot of what happened so now it's time for me to flesh out more of the details. Apocalypse! Magneto! Shuma-Gorath! Featuring a guest appearance by Doctor Strange, Rose shows up yet again and... we will even see an MVC2 character!!! Well sort of, LOL! Next update coming in May. Like Ryu said at the end of the Street Fighter II Animated movie if you watch it in Japanese with subtitles, this entire "Next Up" has been just one gigantic "TEASER!" :P

    Some stuff:

    Edited the Info Bytes of "Thumbs Up Psycho Soldier!" Part 1 to include this image of Captain America's first appearance, that I was referrencing before in that chapter -

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Captainamerica1.jpg#file

    Also, I had forgotten that I named the chapter with Captain America and Chun-Li walking and talking in the base "Thumbs Up Soldiers!" since that conflicts with the "Thumbs Up Psycho Soldier!" chapters, so I renamed chapter 6 "Charging Marvel and Capcom Stars!"

    Hooray! Tatsunoko vs. Capcom announced! And no I don't think I'm nutty enough to reference that game at all in this fic... Arguably Gatchaman has to fall into a different reality entirely, and if they toss in Evangelion, Samurai Pizza Cats, Speed Racer, Macross and Mospeada, etc. OH NOOS! My sympathies will go out to whoever attempts to write that fan fic and tries to put that all the same planet Earth leaving out people traveling from different dimensions, ack... :sweat:

    Oh some funny stuff. Recently at the New York Comic Con I asked Joe Quesada, Senior Editor at Marvel if there would be a chance for either a Marvel vs. Capcom comic or an X-Men vs. Street Fighter comic if Street Fighter IV puts SF on the scene again. He told me there are no plans at this time. Not that it won't happen, but there are no plans at this time. Ah well, at least I still have this fic to keep you entertained since there is no comic book for the forseeable future... Hey, who's booing? :rofl:

    And I also asked Joe Quesada if we would see any more of Shuma-Gorath. JQ said "WHO?" :rofl: I told him he was a god, a big eye with tentacles and JQ said "NO. I hate it already." :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: This was during one of Marvel's panels and the entire crowd got a big laugh, and even more laughs when someone on Marvel's panel asked writer Dan Slott, "Dan Slott, what are your plans for Shuma-Gorath?" :rofl: Hey, I tried! But don't worry, Shuma-Gorath's coming in this fic in the next couple of chapters! Okay, who's booing me this time? :looney:

    Heading off to a pool party soon because it's Memorial Day here in the United States. I wanted to spend today updating this fic but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. What I'm going to try to do is jot everything down on paper today since the next chapter isn't a big one before I head off and then I'll toss it up here when I get a free minute.

    Happy Memorial Day everyone! For those in the United States, please take a momeont to pay your respects to the real life superheroes of the United States Military who have fought for our rights over the years.

    Oh and have fun! :party:

    Chapter 13: "Gonna Take You For a Time Ride!"

    Some time ago about, a half hour after Apocalypse was defeated by Ryu, Ken, Cyclops, Wolverine and Nash during the X-Men vs. Street Fighter affair we find En Sabah Nur (Apocalypse's birth name) waking up the bottom of a pit in his Aztec Temple. Lying on the floor, the world's first Mutant sits up and holds his head in pain.

    "So, you have finally awoken."

    Magneto slowly approached Apocalypse. His helmet was off and you could see his long white hair falling a bit below his neckline. Most of his armor housed gaping holes and was in pretty bad shape throughout.

    "Magneto? You still live?"

    "Somehow, I was teleported to this area by that white orb floating in the air."

    Upon hearing these words, Apocalypse looked up and saw the familiar gigantic white orb floating several feet above his head. This was the same orb he and Nash fell into, prior to vanishing.

    "It's strange. In some way, the orb instructed me to remain here and wait for the arrival of others. Also, to help keep this man alive, the same way I have managed to avoid bleeding to death after my deadly battle with Ryu. By using my Magnetic Power to control the iron content found in blood, advancing the healing process in myself and this young warrior."

    Magnus waved his hand and Nash's body floated before Apocalypse. Hanging in the air lifelessly, he looked like a dead cat on a string. He was unconscious and had a weak pulse, but Nash was very much alive.

    "...I see," uttered the Egyptian Mutant.

    By Magneto's will Nash floated away and laid on the ground, far off to Apocalypse's left. Still on the floor, Apocalypse folded his legs in the same Yoga position Dhalsim constantly assumes. He put his hands on his knees and closed his eyes. He then spoke to Magnus, refering to himself in third person as he was known to do at times.

    "The orb... It was created by an ancient Aztec Civilization, 5,000 years ago when The Apocalypse reigned over the entire world and had pyramids such as this one on every corner of the globe. Just with but a thought, I could teleport to this temple at any point in time thanks to the orb. The technology used by that civilization was quite ahead of everyone else at that time, in some ways it was superior to the scientific minds of today. Unfortunately, The Apocalypse did not reign long enough to have more of these orbs created. It was crafted near the end of my reign."

    "The orb has spoken to me as well. It had a secondary purpose. The Aztecs of that time predicted that The Apocalypse would rule the world once again thousands of years later. It was programmed to aid me on that day and the time is almost at hand. The orb even spoke it's true name in an ancient version of the Nahuatl dialect, Abahextl (pronounced A-ba-ees-t'l)."

    "Or, Abyss, for short..." chimed in Magneto, since that was much easier for him to pronounce and he was not as fluent in as many languages as Apocalypse was.

    "...ABAHEXTL..." continued Apocalypse, ignoring the suggestion "...has teleported the three of us a full year into the past. It's future self from the time we were fighting with the X-Men and Street Fighters and it's past or for us, it's current self have combined into one and now float above us. With two objects fused as one, it is more powerful than ever before. Abahextl has bestowed upon The Apocalypse a gift, with but a thought I can summon anyone found at the temple a year from now to this very spot."

    The power hungry villain opened his eyes, raised a palm in the air caused the orb to become even brighter, omitting a humming noise.

    A year from this time just like En Sabah Nur stated, after everyone cleared out of the area where Apocalypse was defeated in (the last stage of X-Men vs. Street Fighter), Storm and Forge remained embracing each other. Slowly, the gigantic god Shuma-Gorath rose from the crevice of this area (Storm's ending in X-Men vs. Street Fighter). The rather large purple being that housed one eye with a green pupil and several tentacles decided it was time to revert to his true form and take over the world!

    Simply put, that was not meant to be. From the area where the orb seemed to implode before (at the very end of the X-Men vs. SF fan fic), a lightning bolt rang out and struck Shuma-Gorath causing him to disappear in an instant! His entire appearance and reappearance went unnoticed by Storm and Forge who were simply happy holding each other in their arms.

    Returning a year into the past, the same white thunderbolt came from the orb floating above the unconscious Nash and our villains. It struck an area close to Magneto and Apocalypse, off to Apocalypse's right. Shuma-Gorath appeared but he was a lot smaller, the same size he was when he was entrapped in a glass case a year from this time (the same size he is in all of the Capcom games). His one eye was shut and laid on the floor motionless like a dead octopus.

    "Yes... Abahextl knows of this being, called Shuma-Gorath. He is a god that lords over his native dimension and has attempted to rule Earth several times. He was even successful at lording over Earth for a time during the prehistoric age of man, over 1,000,000,000 years ago. He only allowed himself to be captured by us a year from this time, solely for his own amusement. Thanks to the power of Abahextl, we have successfully taken this demon god out of commission. It is no mere act of playing possum this time. Shuma-Gorath will remain asleep for several days, so by then we must find a way to contain and possibly control him. THE APOCALYPSE NOW HAS POWER OVER THE GODS THEMSELVES! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!"

    Magnus was taken back a bit. He has seen many things that defy explanation ever since the day that he took on the name Magneto. Still, even this was a bit much for him. His thoughts ran wild. "A glowing ball called Abyss, that can take people through time? A demonic god who ruled Earth long ago? It all sounds like sheer madness! However, if Apocalypse can truly create a world where Mutants take their rightful place as rulers of this world than I shall put my disbeliefs aside and follow him, for now."

    Placing his raised palm on his knee once more, the deadly X-Men villain closed his eyes yet again. "I must continue to meditate and communicate with Abahextl. We have knowledge of events that will take place one year from this time. We will devise a plan that will allow us to take advantage of the fact that we now of a time where many of the world's Mutants and Martial Artists will be occupied dealing with our future selves. The ancient prophecy will be fulfilled where I will rule this world once again. Still, the details of the prophecy can not be altered, so we must concentrate."

    Remaining on the floor with his legs interlocked, if one didn't know any better they would think Apocalypse was either a statue or in a deep sleep. Speaking of, Magneto walked back to the nearest wall and rested his back against it, dosing off.

    Six hours had past, and finally Apocalypse opened his eyes! Letting out a maniacal laughter he lifted his right palm yet again! Soon enough, thunderbolts came flying down from Abahextl and at their feet were several Mutants and Martial artists laid about, knocked out cold (yes everyone who vanished in chapter 2)! Even Vega's mutilated corpse was present! Magneto awoke, rose up and was surprised to see many of his adversaries knocked out in front of him, along with Professor X himself!

    "This... power... Even my mortal enemy Charles Xavier is no match for it! Yes! Apocalypse can not be stopped! It is fate, no, his destiny!" Magneto thought to himself once more as he wore a devilish grin on his face.

    En Sabah Nur ceased his insane laughter and still with his arm up in the air proclaimed, "All that remains is to transport the Aztec Temple of the future along with ourselves to a destination where we can work in secret, away from prying eyes."

    "If outer space isn't out of the question, I have a suggestion."

    Instantly knowing what Magneto was referring to, Apocalypse began to laugh yet again. "HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!" In the blink of an eye, everyone vanished from the area after a flash of bright light. Abahextl, now that it's future self went along with Apocalypse, Magneto, Nash and the rest of the captured heroes and villains along with the Aztec Temple of the future, it went back to being a single orb yet again in the past. It stopped glowing and remained in place, taking on the look of the giant orb you can see at the end of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 right after you defeat Abyss.

    Now we take you to our present. Apocalypse finished remembering these events of the past. "To think, I have come so far since then. It is only a matter of time..." he continued to ponder.

    He was found walking down the hallway of the same Aztec Temple, only the look was quite different. The walls and floors where composed of white sheet metal. Behind him was his trusted aid and scribe the living statue Ozymandias, who was noticeably absent during X-Men vs. Street Fighter. This was because he was in fact aiding Apocalypse with his current plot in this hidden locale at the time and could not be found.

    Ozymandias spoke. "My lord, do you not worry about the legend, with all of these warriors captured on this base?" Still walking ahead with his fists folded behind his back, Apocalypse responded, "Legend? Do not speak to The Apocalypse in riddles Ozymandias." "Forgive me my lord. I am referring to The Twelve. According to the legend, there are Twelve Warriors that will put an end to your existence once and for all. If the hostages manage to free themselves..." "RUBBISH. That is an old wives tale told to small children eons ago when I ruled over Egypt, nothing more. I am fated to rule the entire world from here to eternity. Nothing can prevent The Apocalypse!"

    Both of them entered a room where a giant door that slid open in front of them and closed behind them. Inside this room that also housed a white metallic floor with corresponding walls was Shuma-Gorath! He was in his actual size, as big as a baseball field! There was a vast number of O-Fuda stuck around his body; rectangular pieces of paper that hung vertically and housed Japanese lettering, an item used to keep demons at bay. All of his tentacles were spread out and held aloft by magical chains made from Hellfire (just like Ghost Rider's chain is) keeping him high up in the air! Beneath him was a giant magical circle drawn on the floor housing ancient Necromantic texts, used to keep Shuma-Gorath at bay! At the four corners of the circle rested powerful mystics chanting in an ages old Latin dialect to aid in keeping Shuma-Gorath still. Each of the four was brainwashed by Shadowloo and followed Apocalypse's orders to the letter. At the north end of the circle was Doctor Strange. To the south of the circle and with her back turned away from Apocalypse and Ozymandias was the Scarlet Witch. To the east was Rose and to the west was a very young gypsy woman wearing attire commonly found on fortune tellers named Madame Celeste (from Final Fight Streetwise). Even with all of that Shuma-Gorath was still struggling, rattling his chains and trying to free himself!

    "APOCALYPSE! YOU CAN NOT HOLD ME PRISONER FOREVER! ONCE I AM RELEASED I WILL TEAR THE FLESH OFF YOUR BONES," yelled the gigantic purple being!

    "My lord, Shuma-Gorath grows more and more difficult to restrain! Early on with Rose and the Horseman of Famine chanting only once a week, it was enough to contain him along with the O-Fuda, Hellfire chains and Necromantic circle. Now it takes 4 mystics chanting 24 hours a day! With the Horseman of Famine otherwise occupied, Madame Celeste, Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange are helping Rose. Stephen Strange has the power to send him back to his own dimension, but we do not dare allow him to use the full range of his powers for he may become too strong for us to contain. It is best we keep him brainwashed and only allow him to use his power within his limits. Still, if Shuma-Gorath frees himself we may have to chance it..."

    "Huh! Huh! Huh!" Apocalypse wore a ghastly grin as he looked up to speak to Shuma-Gorath, in a tone that seemed like the demonic god was beneath him! "Fret not my one eyed friend! You shall have a region of Earth to lord over under the rule of The Apocalypse very soon."

    Even though Shuma-Gorath continued to struggle, he was intrigued by Apocalypse's words.


    *******

    Info Bytes: In Marvel's comics, Apocalypse never did rule the entire world, at least not in the past. He ruled over Egypt only. So that's a change I made for this world, it's something that will help me extend things to a much larger complex planet Earth where Capcom characters dwell in, but that will come later. I mean, from Ancient Egypt to the other times Apocalypse woke up, it's still very vague so it's possible something like him lording over the Earth, might of happened? Eh probably didn't in Marvel. But yeah, it's one of the curiosities of the world why there are pyramids in Egypt and in South America, so maybe this is just a partial fictional explanation for this world, heh!


    On Abahextl's name. I tried really hard to come up with something that sounded like a name of an Aztec god, but at the same time would sound like Abyss. I kind of struggled with it and I don't even think there's a "b" sound in Nauhatl, so in the end I'm just writing it off as an ancient version of that dialect, ACK! Yes, Magneto calls it Abyss for short, already and Apoc denies that name ha ha! How often does anyone get to insert a bit of comedy into Magneto and Apocalypse dialog ROFL! Seriously, Marvel has two versions of characters named Abyss and another legion of people calling themselves 'The Abyss' just showed up in Nova's comic - and none of them have anything to do with Capcom's version of Abyss! So I wanted to make it so Abyss wasn't his real name, even if he / it will adopt that by the time I get up to MVC2 of course. And yes, I'm building a backstory for Abyss because he... REALLY NEEDS ONE lolerooney! I had the orb become the Abyss orb at the very end of X-Men vs. SF too, so I always wanted it to be the one plot device that plays through out the Marvel/Capcom games. Oh and it's a happy accident that Abahextl kind of sounds like the Sabah in En Sabah Nur, like the Ancient Aztecs jumbled the letters a bit heh heh!

    Shuma-Gorath is purple here because he is purple on the last stage of X-Men vs. Street Fighter and in Storm's ending. Capcom originally made him purple as a possible nod to his earliest appearances, where he was purple. In MSH vs. SF, he is green, the same color he is now in Marvel's world. Don't worry, Shuma-Gorath will be green when the time is right. It's naturally assumed that as a god he can change his appearance. When he appeared in Conan The Barbarian's comic back when Marvel had the Conan license, he had a mouth and sharp pointy fangs! Whoa...

    Yes Shuma-Gorath in Marvel's world did come to Earth a million years ago and was feasting on cavemen! Don't worry, he got tossed out eventually. This all went down in Marvel Premiere #14. A whole lot of Shuma-Gorath info BTW -

    http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix2/shumagorath.htm

    Regarding Ozymandias - I like the character and wanted to bring him out and explain why he was absent during X-Men vs. SF. Well he's not in the games... I may have spent more time describing him and his past but since he's only here as a way for me to further avoid revealing more cloaked warriors needlessly... If you really want to know more about him, I suggest you go here and pardon my laziness... Always hate leaving a Wiki link instead of a Marvel.com one but Marvel.com doesn't have much on the guy...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozymandias_(Marvel_Comics)

    O-Fuda is used in anime / manga a hell of a lot. If you watched Sailor Moon at all, Sailor Mars was constantly throwing them at monsters! So just using them here to get a feel for a lot of the anime / manga themes I'm bringing across to Marvel's world.

    Yeah Doctor Strange is like crazy powerful, for not being a god or a cosmic Marvel being and all, but even he has fallen to brainwashing / controlled by evil spirits, beings and evil villains now and again. It pretty much goes with the territory of being a Marvel character. At the very least I wanted him to show up since he really is Shuma-Gorath's #1 enemy.

    Recently in Marvel comics, Scarlet Witch has been shown to be INSANELY powerful. Hmm, I'm just going to say that it was only fairly recent that she started warping reality and doing broken stuff like that... Oh and ditto for Mephisto - NATCH! And yeah even if she was that strong at the time I'm sure Apocalypse had no idea... and neither did she really...

    Why Madame Celeste of Final Fight Streetwise? The thing was if you know your fan fiction black magic, you know you tend to need 4 characters for strong spells, incantations, circles, etc - and I wanted to depict that, even if I refer to a time when there was only two - when Rose and the Horseman of Famine could hold Shuma down. So I wanted a balance, two Marvel and two Capcom characters. Now, I can throw a stick and hit 10 Marvel mystics easy. If I was using all of Capcom, I could probably find a few mystics. It's just that at this stage I wanted to keep things Street Fighter based and Final Fight has an obvious connection to SF. I thought of Oro since he's omega powerful, but again I feel it's too early for me to mention SF3 heads and he's not really mystical. There was Ingrid but I can't have Apocalypse lock down 2 gods now... Thor, Hercules and guys like that who might be captured aside, drat... So a younger Madame Celeste just makes sense to me. Oh and if you play Final Fight Streetwise and you pay attention, you'll realize that Cody does in fact sleep with her, so there is a SF connection there - ZING! I know it's not a popular game and Capcom USA doesn't care for it, they might even retcon it out of existence down the line but does that mean that a random psychic can't exist in my pocket universe? I'm gonna say no. :P Personally gave FFS a 7 out of 10, like EGM said, it's good stupid fun if you don't take it too seriously and the SF Plot Guide mentions FFS a hell of a lot at least. I suppose if you don't ever want to play FFS and this fic is no inspiration, here she's younger so you can just imagine a random gypsy girl and there you go! Ah, and no need for me to edit the Capcom captured list I described earlier on since Madame Celeste would naturally fall beneath SHIELD's notice. ^_^

    Next Up: Hey I updated in May just like I said, hooray for once I'm not a liar! ^_~ Chapter 14 should be up in July since next month I have to give attention to other things. The next Chapter, is HUGE! My favorite Marvel character, SPIDER-MAN will finally show up! I'm so excited to write dialog for my favorite hero, even if I fail miserably yikes... Spider-Armor Spider-Man will also be in the house, I didn't forget about that! The Fantastic Four will show up (how can you have a Marvel story WITHOUT The Fantastic Four) and they will face off against the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse! Sakura and a few other MSH vs. SF characters may show up in the next chapter, as usual I have a broad idea but I can't be sure until I start writing things down. Catch you in two months. FACE FRONT! ^_^

    Re: Info Bytes from the last chapter - Special thanks to KiplingKat of Newsarama on Magneto's name not being Erik L. Glad I didn't use that name ever in my fics lol! I suppose it was a slip up of sorts by Bendis by using his name Erik in New Avengers recently. Anyway -

    http://forum.newsarama.com/showpost.php?p=5605666&postcount=57

    Speaking of, there will be a new series that tells his origin and they will probably put an end to all of this and offer Magneto's real name. Well I will probably keep on using Magnus either way. :smile:

    Chapter 14: "Fantastic Foreshadowing!"

    A metallic hand with a distinctive web pattern emerged from Central Park Lake that night. Spider-Man dragged his body out of the twenty-two acres of water. The self proclaimed Wall Crawler's outfit was silvery white and gray. "Ugh... Did someone get the license plate of that Flying Horseman? How long was I out for? Wait a second! THE FANTASTIC FOUR! FRANKLIN! NO!" Still on the ground, Spider-Man thought back to the events that occurred earlier that day.

    In his original red and blue outfit, Peter Parker otherwise known as the Amazing Spider-Man was surrounded by the Fantastic Four clad in their navy blue and white costumes in the Electro-Mechanical workshop located on the third floor of the Four Freedoms Plaza. This famous skyscraper that housed four number '4s' on the roof of each side of the building was the headquarters of one of America's most renowned teams of super-powered adventurers.

    Genius inventor and leader of the quartet Reed Richards AKA Mr.Fantastic had a mechanical watch in his hands. By Reed's side was his beautiful wife Sue Richards, the Invisible Woman. Standing by was one of Spider-Man's best friends Johnny Storm the Human Torch. And the ever loving orange rock creature, Ben Grimm The Thing was present and accounted for. Franklin Richards, the very young son of Mr. Fantastic and The Invisible Woman was running around the room with a toy version of the famous Fantasticar, the flying vehicle used by the team. He held up in the air and pretended to make it fly while making his own sound effects like "Zoom! Zoom," just like a normal child would.

    "Here you go Spider-Man, finished building it this morning. I added a few modifications but the design was based on the specs you gave me. Beneath that mask beats the mind of a brilliant scientist." "Thanks Mr. Fantastic. I knew paying attention to Doctor Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker on The Muppet Show would pay off sooner or later!" Reed handed the watch to Spider-Man and he rolled up his sleeve so he could place it underneath his left web shooter.

    "So receiving a watch, already? Let me guess, you're retiring from the superhero business," joked The Invisible Woman. "Yeah. Ain't it a hoot that when people retire the companies they work for give them a golden watch, but why does a retired person need to tell time if he doesn't have to wake up in the morning to punch a clock? But no, I'm not hanging up my webs yet. Besides, the 'Men in Tights' 401K plan sucks!"

    Peter Parker went on, "That nut job Carnage escaped from the Maximum Security Institution Ravencroft about a week ago. Last time it took both me and Venom to take him down. Venom's doing his anti-hero thing in San Francisco and I say let sleeping symbiotes lie. Speaking of lying, or laying... Carnage is laying low for now. Just gonna need a little help smacking him around during round 2." "Hey if you need a hand Aunt Petunia's favorite blue eyed nephew and the rest of the FF's only a phone call away chum!" "Thanks Benjamin Grimm. I appreciate the help but I just don't know when Carnage will resurface and you guys tend to be away saving the universe every other day of the year. No worries..." While Spider-Man was speaking he pushed a button on his giant watch. Billions of microscopic nanotech robotic spiders came out of the watch and quickly covered his entire body. With a flash the red part of his suit turned white and the blue area turned gray. "...It's nothing me and my new Spider-Armor 2.0 can't handle!"

    "I don't know, I liked your other costume better," added Johnny Storm. "Which one, the Red and Blue? Black and White? Were you following me around when the New Enforcers destroyed Spider-Armor 1.0 man I knew I had a stalker..." "Nah webhead, I'm talking about that time you had us take that symbiote suit off of you and you ran out of here in a blue and black Fantastic Four outfit with a bag on your head and a "Kick Me" sign on your back. The Bag-Man outfit, now that was a keeper!" "Funny matchstick! Next time we meet up on the Statue of Liberty's Torch remind me to bring a Fire Extinguisher! Anyway, let's test this bad boy. Thing, give me a love tap on the old bread box and don't hold back." While speaking these words our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man patted his stomach and this made a clanging noise. Next he stood erect and rested his balled up fists at his sides in a classic superhero pose. "Yes, I believe a demonstration is in order," agreed Reed Richards, motioning for everyone other than Thing and Spider-Man to step back.

    "You asked for it Bug Boy!" Thing punched Spider-Man's stomach as hard as he could, creating an even louder noise and causing the room to shake a bit! Franklin Richards lost his balance and dropped his Fantasticar toy, but Invisible Woman stopped it from hitting the floor with a floating invisible forcefield. Once the room stopped shaking the boy went to grab his floating toy and the bubble dispersed seconds before he got a hold of it. "Thanks mom!" "Anytime sweety!" Franklin went back to playing with his toy.

    Even after that powerful hit Spider-Man still remained standing there as if nothing happened! "Good old Nano-Technology! Billions of microscopic robots working in harmony to protect yours truly! Didn't feel a thing, Thing! Okay... maybe just a little, oooh..." Peter put both his hands and crouched down just a bit in pain. "Someone's been eating their Wheaties..." "Still, that blow should'a flattened ya Spidey. Carnage won't know what hit him!"

    Reed spoke while walking back to the spot he was standing earlier with Sue and Johnny following. "I've coated the armor with a mix of Titanium Steel and Vibranium, not as strong as Captain America's shield or Wolverine's Adamantium skeleton but it will do in a pinch. On top of that, there's a new stealth alloy I've been experimenting with that I've added so you won't show up on any radar tracking system. Furthermore, just with a thought you'll be able to access any recording devices in the immediate area. You can test it out now by thinking the words "Camera On!" and gaining temporary use of the wall cameras of this room. Give it a try!" "You want me to just think the words Reed? Come'on, you know when us heroes yell these words out so we can put a lot more energy into our moves!" Spidey assumed his bouncing fighting stance (the same one from the Capcom video games) and yelled "CAMERA ON!" "Oh brother how corny can you get..." chimed in The Human Torch. "And that's coming from the guy who needlessly says 'FLAME ON!' whenever he turns on his powers..." Spidey pointed out.

    Much the same way Iron Man can view multiple angles within his armor, four rectangular screens appeared before Spider-Man's point of view, each on on the corners of his line of sight. He really could see himself and the rest of the Fantastic Four at different angles of the room. He rose up in a more natural stance. "Boy, that settles it Johnny. You really don't have a good side. I think you need to pay Thing's make-up artist a visit." "At least I don't have to hide my boyishly good looks behind a mask. I heard last time you showed your face Doctor Doom gave you his face plate and said you needed it more than he did!" "Yo momma's so fat..." countered the costumed hero. "WHATCHYOUSAIDABOUTMYMOMMA?" Sue playfully jumped in. Smiling while her eyebrows were slightly curled in anger, even if she knew the two were just clowning around and there was no harm intended on Spider-Man's part. "AHEM... you were saying, Reed..." said Spidey since he temporarily forgot about Johnny and Sue being siblings so he quickly tried to change the subject.

    "Yes well, moving along..." said Reed Richards, always as serious as a heartbeat. Johnny snickered to himself and Sue jokingly bopped him in the back of his head rather hard so he could stop giggling. "HEY," her brother responded to the blow. Reed continued, "...The suit also contains a healthy air supply so you will be able to breath while wearing the suit for hours on end. Also, just below your left Web Shooter on the watch I've even included buttons that will emit a small stream of fire and sonic waves, exploiting the two known weaknesses of the symbiotes. Even though the metallic armor covers the watch entirely, tapping down twice in the general area the buttons are located with your right hand will allow you to fire these projectiles similar to the way you emit webbing." "Wow, and here I was just going to borrow a Sonic Disruptor gun again just like I did when I fought against Venom in the past, but now I don't need one. You've really thought of everything Reed! Just one question, where's the cappuccino button? Uh oh... SPIDER-SENSE TINGLING!"

    A loud ringing noise went off in Spider-Man's head. He knew danger was fast approaching!

    About a hundred three foot tall floating black pyramids appeared all around the top floors just outside of the Four Freedoms Plaza. Each of them floated ten feet away from the building swarming it like bees before a beehive, sending green bolts of electricity to the skyscraper!

    Suddenly the entire room started to flash red and the noise of a loud burglar alarm went off! "Someone is trying to break into this building! But that's impossible, with all of our defenses in place..." pondered Reed. "Are you kidding me stretch-o? I broke into the old Baxter Building really early in my Spider career! But is that reflected in my 401K plan? Noooo...."

    A huge explosion occurred on the wall that was farthest away from our heroes! The alarm died out and quickly the room shook as gigantic pieces of debris from the two floors above them came crashing down! A large chunk of the second floor above them was about to land on the Fantastic Four but The Invisible Woman created a forcefield to protect them! As soon as the blast was heard Spider-Man ran towards Franklin Richards as his Spider-Sense warned them that he was in the worst danger of all! Sue couldn't even see Franklin since the piece of metallic floor that fell on top of them and and was now leaning on her hemispheric bubble that covered her teammates was also covering her line of view. And sadly Franklin was closest to the big explosion! Everything happened so fast that there was no time for her to react! "FRANKLIN," She yelled in terror!

    The little boy looked up and was frozen in fear. He dropped his toy Fantasticar as the real Fantasticar which the Fantastic Four park on the hangar of the top floor of the building was about to land right on his head!

    Spider-Man shot a web up to a remaining portion of the ceiling and quickly swung counter clockwise, from six o'clock to twelve o'clock! He pushed Franklin several feet, safely out of harm's way and the Fantasticar fell right on top of him instead dragging him two flights down!

    As you could imagine, there was several pounds of debris on top of Spider-Man. He couldn't move a single muscle. He managed to utter the words "Camera... On..." so he could partially see what the Fantastic Four was doing at the time and be a witness to their upcoming battle, even if one of the four cameras was taking down at this point.

    Sue floated the debris away from her forcefield and made the bubble disappear. She saw Franklin lying on the ground. Shaken, but he was still alive. "SON," yelled Reed Richards. "Spider-Man... It can't be..." worried Johnny Storm.

    When the smoke disippated, the Four Horseman of Apocalypse were before them. Famine and Pestilence were on the ground while War and Death floated in the air, all of them riding their robotic horses.

    Franklin looked up and the Horseman of Pestilence was closest to him. He stared at the warrior wearing a white cloak with red symbols all around. Just upon looking at him, Franklin felt his life essence drain from him and he passed out. "So... tired... must... sleep..."

    "FRANKLIN! WHAT HAVE YOU MONSTERS DONE," shouted Reed. While his feet remained on the ground the top portion of his body stretched out in the general direction of the Horseman and his arms extended several feet long! Sue also went running after their child! Unfortunately, Reed wasn't the only one who could stretch his limbs. The two sleeves on the yellow cloak that housed black hieroglyphics of the Horseman of Famine extended just about as far as Mr. Fantastic's arms did and he placed his right hand on Reed Richard's forehead! With his left he tried to touch Sue's head but she stopped his arm with a small circular shield. It did no good because he was still close enough to use his powers on her. "THE... ENDLESS... HUNGER..." said Reed as he became really thin, nothing more than stretched out skin and stretched out bones. "His power... It's too great..." said Sue who clutched her stomach and became quite thin herself. Both of them fainted. Reed's limbs were still extended resting on the floor he looked like a paper thin deflated balloon.

    "FLAME ON!" Johnny Storm's body was engulfed in flames and he became The Human Torch! He started to fly right at the Horseman of War! But the Horseman (who we already know was Vega, cape wearing leader of Shadowloo) started to spin around on his horse clockwise while blue energy surrounded his body. With a Psycho Crusher maneuver he rammed right into Human Torch all while rotating and still riding his horse!" After the massive impact blue flames covered Johnny's body! He went soaring away and his back crashed against the wall behind him! He fell twelve feet to the floor and when the blue flames vanished, there wasn't any kind of fire surrounding his body. He rather hot headed young man was knocked out cold and was down for the count.

    "That tears it! IT'S CLOBBERING TIME!" Thing took a gigantic leap, an amazing fifty feet up in the air (each floor in the building is twenty four feet high)! During the same jump he grabbed on to a gigantic engine that looked like it was meant for a large aircraft that Reed was working on and was suspended in the air by chains. Snapping the chains off and at a five o'clock angle he came barreling down towards the Horseman of Death who was still floating in the sky (this is exactly like Hulk's Gamma Charge Super Art, only instead of a meteor it's Thing coming down with a big engine). The Horseman's right hand was quickly covered with red energy. He jumped in the air with a rising uppercut as his body twirled, yes just like a Shoryuken! When his flaming fist and and the engine collided it caused yet another tremendous explosion! When all was said and done, Thing fell to the floor lifelessly and the Horseman of Death fell back on to his floating horse without a scratch!

    Each of the Horseman retrieved a fallen foe and put their dormant bodies on their horses. Death carried Thing, Famine had Reed Richards (whose body snapped back into place by now), War had Human Torch and Pestilence carried both The Invisible Woman and Franklin Richards. Once they had their targets they all teleported away.

    The black pyramids floating around the building sent bolts of green electricity (actually, this was a portion of Abahextl's / Abyss's power) and it destroyed the top floors of the building! This sent Spider-Man flying away in his armored suit! Flying an incredible distance, he landed in Central Park's Lake and thanks to his armor was able to survive this ordeal! The small pyramids vanished and soon after, New York was ravished with deadly earthquakes!

    Spider-Man, back at Central Park stopped reminiscing about the past and stood up. Since his armored suit did prevent anyone being able to pick him up on radar, this protected him from Apocalypse's forces retrieving him and even S.H.I.E.L.D. was not able to locate him at all.

    He looked into the night sky and saw large that pieces of buildings were missing. Even Central Park itself was wrecked; bridges and roads were torn asunder. "What in the world happened?"

    Attaching a web to the nearest tree, our hero started to swing away. He was heading towards the Fantastic Four's building all the while taking a closer look at his beloved yet fallen city.

    Info Bytes: The Fantastic Four's appearance in this story is rather generic, meaning I'm not trying to fit it into any place in their comic book storyline really. I thiiink around the point in Marvel time that I'm using for this story Thing was wearing some kind of mask because Wolverine clawed his face, yeah not going with that for this story lol! The Fantastic Four was going through plenty of changes at the time, even members were swapped out off and on again! I did keep their 80s/90s dark blue and white outfits though because they did wear those for several years before switching back. Besides, they even used those in the 90s cartoon so there might be a bit more familiarity to it for that time frame. Ah, and I grew up with the dark blue and white outfits since they wore them during Secret Wars so I suppose I have a preference too.

    They are in the Four Freedoms Plaza and not the Baxter Building. In '86 the Baxter Building was sent off into space and destroyed by Doom's son! The Four Freedoms Plaza is exactly like the old Baxter Building though, except for the four '4s' on the top. So much so that I used mainly the 80s Marvel Universe book's specs on the Baxter Building for this story. And hey, by chance I was wrong about something than no worries because I destroyed all of the FF's floors anyway ha ha ha! In one of the Capcom game's backgrounds you can actually see the big '4' on the roof so which building to use is quite an easy choice. There's quite a long explanation as to why the FF's building is the Baxter Building once again in current Marvel comics, but that story involves the Thunderbolts and at the point in time this fan fic is taking place that team has not been created just yet.

    Um, yeah, Franklin never ages (except when he was fast tracked aged to a teenager, long story - but he went back to being a kid yet again) so no age I come up for him is going to work! He's a little kid right now, maybe like 5 or so? Well, Marvel doesn't age him because if they do they have to age both Reed and Sue, it's just one of those things...

    I think I said this before, but Spider-Man's story in this timeline takes place just prior to the main events of Maximum Carnage. Carnage escaped from Ravencroft just at the beginning of that story so that's still in place. So like Spider-Man said, this is after he and Venom teamed up to defeat him the first time. However, here there is a delay between that escape and the rest of the story. Whether or not the rest of Maximum Carnage's story will still play out in this world, well it's entirely possible just that things happen a bit later somewhat. I guess it's up to you, but there were some non Capcom made Maximum Carnage video games so if you played them and want them to be part of this world don't let me stop you lol!

    Venom is a hero right now, not a fan of this time really for the character as I liked him being evil but he was a hero during Marvel vs. Capcom 1 which happens just after this story. So it's not something I feel I should remove. Around now, he has forgiven Spider-Man with regards to the past and is trying to move on for his life. Thankfully this doesn't last forever and he becomes evil again in the comics.

    So for Spider-Man we are in his comic book year 1993. Not only was Maximum Carnage written in '93 but his first silver and white Spider-Armor was created and destroyed in 1993! In Web of Spider-Man #100. Destroyed by The New Enforcers! Well he has this suit in MSH vs. SF, but I made the version of the suit slightly different. The video game one is a color swap anyway while the comic book one isn't really; heh the one in this story is a color swap too. ^_^

    If you haven't guessed, the way this armor comes on is a nod to the short lived Spider-Man Unlimited cartoon of the 90s where his suit there came on a similar way! I even retooled some of the dialog on how Spider-Man described some of the suit's abilities, because I'm a hack lol! In the first episode, Spider-Man said he discreetly borrowed technology from Reed Richards, but I wanted him to work with him forthright. I remember seeing that episode and wishing there was a Fantastic Four cameo in the first episode. Ah well. Oh, and the transformation was kind of similar on how I had Dhalsim turn light blue back in my X-Men vs. SF fan fic. Still find it really funny that I went to all that trouble and in Udon's SF comics they just had him Dhalsim turn colors at will! Props to Udon, wish I'd have thought of that. ^_^

    Other things that are going on in Spidey's 'comic book' life right now, Harry Osborn just passed away and robots of Spidey's birth parents are running around but I'm not going to mention either of these things... because well, Harry Osborn just may be alive in the comics right now and... I'm really not going anywhere near Spider-Man believing his birth parents were alive oooh...

    Spidey's married to Mary Jane, just haven't found the opportunity to bring it up. Of course she shows up as Spider-Man's wife in Capcom's endings anyway. As a side note, recently it seems that Marvel is trying to say that in the comics Mephisto just made everyone including Spider-Man and Mary Jane forget they were ever married, so all of the old stories can remain in place. But it's an ongoing thing with Spidey as of right now and we don't know how Marvel's going to play it.

    Yeah, the first time Spider-Man got the symbiote suit off of him was when he visited the Fantastic Four's building. Since he needed an outfit or clothes to go home, they lent him and old blue and black outfit and a bag on his head! The Human Torch then put a "KICK ME" sign on his back when he wasn't looking ROFL! So that's the "BAG-MAN" outfit Johnny was talking about. You can even unlock this suit in the first Activision 3D Spider-Man game! The symbiote does find Spider-Man and he gets it removed finally with the ringing bell in St. Peter's Church and this is how Venom is created, as shown in the Spider-Man 3 movie and the 90s cartoon, the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon also.

    Spider-Man and The Human Torch do tend to meet on the Statue of Liberty's torch, it's their special meeting place. They kid around but they are good buddies, similar to Johnny and Thing's friendship. They meet up there in the first 3D Activision Spider-Man game too. PS loved that game. <3

    LOL, Spidey's comment on saying the words out loud. As you may know, Marvel characters don't really shout out the names of moves before they do them in the comics. But they do in the Capcom games, so that's my little rational of why. Watsuki, author of Rurouni Kenshin (where Sagara Sanosuke comes from and where I get my net name Sano from heh) had a character say the same thing in one of his stories as a way to rationalize why manga / anime characters scream moves out before they do them. I can't remember which manga this happened for the life of me, it was either Meteor Strike, Gun Blaze West or Busou Renkin... Well it makes sense to me somewhat so that's why Spidey has to say "WEB BALL" all the time, Cyclops says "GENE SPLICE" and so on, so borrowing that from Watsuki. :P

    Spidey did borrow a big purple Sonic Disrupter gun for the very first time he fought Venom in Amazing Spider-Man #300, just never got around to using it really.

    And he did break into the old Baxter Building - the earlier version of the same building basically - in the very first issue of Amazing Spider-Man. Yep for all the defenses the building is supposed to have, people are always breaking into the thing ha ha! Hey Abyss powers, that'll work! ~_^ As an aside, the floating black pyramids are loosely based on the floating small pyramids that showed up I thiiiiink during the last episode or so of the X-Men Evolution episode by Apocalypse. Well I have rather vague memories on how they looked exactly on that show to be honest with you... IIRC they created a big forcefield around his giant pyramid.

    Thing coming down with the engine just like Hulk's super with the meteor rock is my play on Orange Hulk. One of the many many things that I have heard about Marvel / Capcom games that I can in no way confirm as being fact or bible so please do not take my word on this, is that Capcom wanted to put Thing in their games but couldn't due to a rights issue, so they made an Orange Hulk. Well... having Thing do a move kind of similar to Hulk's is my insane way of having Orange Hulk in this universe. I mean having Hulk grab a meteorite from space is a difficult thing to pull of in a Fan fic anyway ROFL! But no, I'm never going to have Hulk turn orange in this world, sorry... Unless Marvel does some kind of major retcon type of thing to say Hulk was orange several years ago but I STRONGLY doubt that HAR! HAR! I mean, even if the story I heard isn't true about Capcom not being able to get the rights to FF at the time (because some other gaming had the rights to them, as the RUMOR DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE goes) I can only guess that Orange Hulk is like a color swap way of getting Thing in the game... I mean seriously, ORANGE? x_x Eh there's a Red Hulk now running around the comics if that means anything to you lol!

    Yeah more clues as to who the Horseman are. Um, if you figured out who the rest of them are please keep it to yourself... Still a bunch of the Dark Riders left for you to take guesses about. ^_^

    Oh, I had to go back and slightly edit my info bytes earlier on the Hitler/Vega thing I was talking about on Chapter 10, because as per the latest Bionic Commando retcons the BC part one now takes place in 2029, far into the future! Um, I probably should of just mentioned this in a separate post but after not updating for a while I wanted my very next post to be an actual update. Even though it was so big I had to break it down into two posts oooh... ^_^;


    *******

    Next Up: What did I say, July for this update and I'm two months late? Man, it's September now, dang I suck... Pushing for some time in October for the next update since November I plan to be busy with a few things. Ah that's the plan anyway. So yeah, next time Sakura, Gouki, Shuma-Gorath and YES Norimaro from the Japanese version of MSH vs. SF will appear no I didn't forget about him! Happy Labor Day and remember, with crappy fan fic writing skills comes crappy fan fic responsibilities yuck yuck! Have a good one. ^_^

    Narration sounds more like a blue-print for a screen play than an actual story. Nice that you tried to include Ingrid into the universe, though. Her conceptual design fits more into XvSF's universe, rather than Street Fighter by itself. Not that I don't like her design, but when she first came into SFZ3, she didn't fit at all, imo.
    I'd rather see her somewhere in Melty Blood or Arcana Heart. Not Street Fighter.
    So, you won't finish this until late '09?
    Ay look. I keep my ass clean. If a girl wants to put her tongue up there then, you know, whatever shinkuus her hadouken man.

    Yes prior to the recent upgrade. For right now, there seems to be a few bugs they need to work out with that upgrade before I go ahead and do it again. I'll probably just wait until I finish up here.

    Bump!

    Majority of the next installment is worked out, trying to wrap my head around how to write the last part since I hit a few roadblocks during my Marvel research but it should be up either this weekend or next.

    Oh hey on the plus side with Gen still bouncing around in the console version SF4 I'm glad I didn't touch on the character in this world at all! Never planned on killing Rose here and Vega(cape), he comes back in SF2 no matter what I do. There's Gouken, but I THIIIINK his death witnessed by Ken with Ojou-san bailing is still in place even though he's running around SF4 so the way I depicted it in X-Men vs. SF still might hold up, at least for now maybe? My psychic powers are in full effect yippee! Hear that, it's the sound of one hand clapping AKA no one really cares ROFL!

    The Tatsunoko vs. Capcom endings, are all kinds of crazy. You can find them on Youtube very easily now. Doubt that that game fits into the Marvel / Capcom universe, Capcom's games anyway. It can fit into the Yatterman universe easy which is pretty wacky and it is known to have lots of Tatsunoko cameos, if you want to place it somewhere... Then again, MSH vs. SF had its shares of wacky endings too I guess... Yeah I reference lots of stuff but still not touching anything in TVC with a ten foot pole... Well it would all still be years ahead of what I'm doing anyway and I never used Rival Schools characters for Batsu's age to matter, psychic powers again, maybe! (?) It would only matter if Capcom did say it was in the same world, they did call TVC their 7th 'vs.' game. But nothing about storyline though, at least that I know of anyway. Up to the gamers I guess. Capcom claimed X-Men COTA, MSH, X-Men vs. SF, MSH vs. SF, MVC1 and MVC2 as part of that series in case you're curious on TVC's website. They didn't include the CVS games as part of that series, course it plays differently and they made 3 CVS games when you count CVS 1 Pro. I always felt the CVS games were seperate storyline-wise, just my take on that.

    Anyway, some Marvel Universe fun! Special thanks to Rabidrage for pointing this out to me! Clark Kent AKA Superman in the Marvel Universe! Lois Lane too! I won't use him/them in this story for obvious reasons - gatherings of Earth's greatest heroes and SUPERMAN stays at home HA HA but it's a fun little tidbit. And hey if 10 miracles happen and they do make a Marvel vs. DC vs. Capcom game, I figure I can always come back and edit, have a bunch of DC guys captured by Apocalypse! Nah Batman fans will ask for my head or something... :blush:

    http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/kentclrk.htm
    http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/loisdc.htm

    I was reading before about James Bond being turned down by S.H.I.E.L.D. before! HA HA the Marvel Universe is a great place! Lots of things you can play with. No I won't use James Bond, I figure for him to fit in this world and Cammy to still be part of the same MI6 (well she joins it by SF2's time frame) he'd have to be the old Sean Connery character or even the Roger Moore version and beyond retired. Obviously he could be the same guy in the original books since those came out years ago heh! Or he could be the new James Bond character since that timeline puts his first adventure in our time and Cammy would be doing her FF Streetwise model thing by now, nah don't think about it too much I guess... :looney:

    Ah that takes care of my update filler post! Back to trying to figure things out... AKA more Marvel research for me, which just means reading more old comics. :lovin:

    Hey Juni and Juli are in here along with the 12 Dolls and they should return towards the ending, which will be like in 2010 at this current pace lol! Just wish I could crank this out faster... Hoping '09 will be a more productive year. :smile:

    Awesome! :D Look foward to reading more! Wonder if they'll survive to live life once more? :o

    So yeah been reading stuff online and it's possible, Capcom may have re-retconned Gouken's death so now he fell down a waterfall again with his body gone missing? And that's how he's still alive? Hmm I think no one is 100% sure on how that works just yet, so take it as RUMOR for now... I've avoided a lot of SF4 spoilers to really know either way... Waiting to pick up the game and stuff. :smile:

    LOL not gonna go back and change that scene the way I depicted it in X-Men vs. SF either way. For this world, I think it doesn't matter unless Gouken shows up in MVC3? If that game ever comes out and by golly if I'm still writing this stuff (like 50+ characters in MVC2, that's gonna take a LOONG time) and Capcom doesn't do something that contradicts everything I've scribbled down HA HA I can always come up with something else. Hey if I get desperate I can say that when Gouki Shun Goku Satsu'd Gouken his body busted through the dojo and landed in a waterfall. :lol: Ah well, there's tons of ways to bring people back to life in comics besides. For me I already had Dan suit up in Gouken's old outfit temporarily and not the newer one during this fic, but Gouken could of had different outfits I guess... Eeeeh, I still haven't done anything to effect Rose, Vega's(cape) or Gen's SF4 statuses. Three out of four isn't bad? :looney:

    Studio Udon has this problem with Rose, Gen and Gouken since they offed all three, but arguably if I were them I would of handled things the same... Maybe not with Rose but the whole merging souls thing does creep some people out...

    Hey I thought I only had to worry about Marvel retcons here... :rofl: Anyway like I said before I decided to ignore all of the Brand New Day Spider-Man stuff (Spidey was never married, just living with MJ, MAYBE... big retcon...) but I might use some of the more recent retcons with Apocalypse's backstory. Not too sure just yet...

    Yeah SRK is going through upgrades which is the only thing really keeping me from updating this on Sunday. I have the majority of it written on paper and I'll type it up as a Notepad, so whenever SRK does go up I can copy / paste. Currently trying to research the comedian Norimaro and the Tunnels as much as I can since he's coming up soon, I guess no one on YouTube is going to fan sub some of his sketches to help me out a bit. :sweat: Ah I'll do my best which tends to be pretty bad ROFL! This paragraph is the only one that's important... :rofl:

    Chapter 15: "Keep Shuma-Gorath's Eye On The Prize!"


    Going down Fifth Avenue that night in New York City was one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Flying Cars. The wheels were positioned horizontally since the car had assumed its In-Flight configuration, but it was only about a foot off the ground. Much like a convertible, this dark gray vehicle had no hood in place. Not even a windshield. Since their mission was to spot Spider-Man either by the radar or by plain sight a hooded car would only limit their actions.

    In the front seat were two Level 6 Field Agents. Both wore typical S.H.I.E.L.D. blue and orange outfits with standard issue orange holsters that housed 9 MM pistols beneath their left arms. The two operatives had on blue helmets and black sunglasses. They also wore gas masks; after New York City experienced the Earthquake caused by Apocalypse's plans there was a thick white mist in the air thanks to the Empire State Building being destroyed and other buildings along getting wrecked, and even parts of the streets were ravished.

    Sakura sat in the back seat still wearing her eternal sailor girl High School outfit. She too had a protective mask on to cover her mouth from the fumes of the city.

    As the car slowly made it's way down the street the two agents kept an eye on the circular Radar system on the car's dashboard that was set to pick up Spider-Man's movements. Sakura kept her eyes open, looking all around and many times up into the sky. Hoping to see the webbed wonder swinging by the skyline as millions of New Yorkers have over the years.

    At one point Sakura's eyes turned to an adjacent street and saw several Firefighters escorting a family out of a collapsed apartment building. She couldn't help but shed a tear, thinking of all of the lives that were lost that day. Still, she was given the assignment to help locate Spider-Man. So for now she wiped away her tear away and held her grief within.

    Further down Fifth Avenue as more of the mist before them cleared a bit, they spotted the back of a man walking forward in a menacing way, right in the center of the road and before the car's path. This man with clenched fists had on a black gi and red spiked hair. Sakura's eyes widened in terror. She ripped off her gasmask, jumped out of the Flying Car and ran ahead of it. "GOUKI," she yelled. The Flying Car stopped and the wheels assumed their regular positions while it floated down to the ground. Now it was just like an ordinary car.

    Upon hearing his name Gouki stopped dead in his tracks, turning his head around just enough so he could see Sakura and the two officers. His eyes began to glow red, like a lion staring at his prey. The minute his eyes lit up the white mist that surrounded all of them vanished from his presence and soon there was no such mist for several blocks. This was the power of his mighty aura.

    Sakura thought back to a few weeks ago, the first time she met Gouki.

    One Summer evening in Tokyo, Sakura was wandering around a Fair at Ueno Park. During the Fair lots of people came out for the nightly festival. Some were wearing kimonos and others wore masks that covered their faces for fun. Down a cobbled street plenty of vendors were outside offering games of chance where you could win prizes. "Darn it, Ryu Sensei ditched me again! I'm going to become his pupil whether he likes it or not! He was around here somewhere..." Sakura declared to herself.

    "STEP RIGHT UP AND TRY YOUR LUCK! ONLY 300 YEN! CATCH SOME GOLDFISH WITH THIS NET AND THEY ARE YOURS!" The screaming vendor held up a really small white butterfly net that looked like it would break apart the moment it came in contact with water. Still there were about five children trying to catch fish in the rectangular fishbowl in front of him. Sakura approached this vendor and spoke. "Excuse me sir! I'm looking for a strong fighter who is wearing a gi and..." "Oh young lady I did see someone like that. He just passed by here a few moments ago heading down the road. Perhaps if you..." "Ah, thank you!" Sakura bowed to the man and with her thumb she flipped a 300 yen coin at him. The vender caught the coin with one hand and grinned with his eyes clothes. "STEP RIGHT UP," he continued to yell.

    The path before her was really crowded and she tried to make her way through as quickly as possible. "RYU SENSEI," she kept screaming but no one answered. Off in the distance she did spot a man covered in shadows who was wearing a gi, but it was only for a brief moment as the thick crowd soon covered up her line of view. "RYU," she exclaimed and plowed through the sea of people, even pushing people out of the way when necessary! Finally, she broke free of the large crowd and slammed into the gi wearing man's back!, "Ryu, OOF," she uttered since her head collided with his lower spine. She stepped back and took a good look at him. "Hey, you're not Ryu Sensei!"

    The man turned around slowly to face her. "Ryu Sensei? Does my foolish brother's pupil think he's strong enough to take on students? Perhaps I should of ended his life the last time our fists crossed."

    "Wait a minute... Ryu told me about you... "You're... GOUKI! I'm not going to let you lay a hand on my Sensei!" Sakura took on her fighting stance and was ready to defend Ryu's honor. "Hmph. I have no interest in fighting small children. BEGONE!"

    "GRRR..." exclaimed the young teenager who ran right at her opponent. She tried to kick him at his side but before she could make contact Gouki took her down with a single open palm to the stomach! She flew back several feet! The crowd was surprised but they didn't know how to react, and no one was brave enough to question the actions of the fear inspiring Gouki!

    Trembling Sakura rose to her knees, clutching her stomach with one hand while the other was on the ground to hold herself up. "This is... Ryu's greatest rival... Gouki..."

    Next something startling occurred! A blue portal opened behind Gouki and out of it came a purple tentacled being whose entire body was that of an eye ball! Upon seeing this everyone in the area ran away screaming except for Gouki and Sakura! Still on her knees, Sakura was rather stunned while Gouki faced the being, gazing at him rather indifferently.

    "HA HA HA HA! I SHUMA-GORATH HAVE FINALLY FOUND A WAY BACK INTO THIS REALM! KNOW I SHALL RULE OVER ALL OF YOU WAISTS OF FLESH! KNEEL BEFORE YOUR NEW MASTER!"

    Going on instinct, Gouki raised a fist up to his face and put the other to his side while raising one knee. He Ashura Warped towards the being and took him out with his Shun Goku Satsu, AKA his Raging Demon! A bright light emerged while several blows where heard hitting their marks! When the light dyed down Shuma-Gorath was on the ground with his one eye closed!

    Sakura could not believe what she just saw! "TH...TH... THIS IS THE POWER RYU SPOKE OF... THE SATSUI NO HADOU?" Her skin started to flash a darker shade on and off for a bit! Returning to her regular skin tone and still somewhat conscious, Sakura fell to the ground completely. Her eyes dimmed a little.

    Soon after a ghost like image of Apocalypse appeared on the scene. "HA! HA! HA! HA! You're battles are still as entertaining as ever Gouki!" "APOCALYPSE! You were not to appear before me again unless you had a worthy adveRsary for me to face!" (That conversation occurred during the X-Men vs. Street Fighter fan fic; this is Gouki and Apocalypse's second meeting). "All in due time my impatient friend. I still require aid in setting the stage for your glorious battle. This Shuma-Gorath, is quite interesting. I sense that he is still alive even though he was struck with your most powerful attack. And Sakura, she has a hidden power that she is not fully aware of. Both require further study. Bring them to me. You'll find a floating vessel near the ocean, take them there." Gouki was rather annoyed but he decided to follow his orders for the time being. "...Very well." The image of Apocalypse vanished from sight.

    He tossed Sakura over one of his shoulders, she said "Ryu.." before finally passing out. With his free hand he grabbed Shuma-Gorath by a tentacle and dragged him along. Gouki started to make his way towards the nearest beach.

    Unbeknownst to Sakura at the time, Shuma-Gorath opened his eye slightly and thought to himself. "SO THIS IS THE POWER HUMANS HAVE ACHIEVED OVER THE YEARS? FASCINATING. I HAD TO REDUCE MY ORIGINAL SIZE TO FIT THROUGH THE PORTAL I CREATED TO ENTER THIS DOMAIN SO AN ATTACK WAS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION, BUT I DID NOT EXPECT SOMETHING OF THIS MAGNITUDE. I SHALL CONTINUE TO OBSERVE THE HUMANS, FOR NOW."

    And this was how Sakura and Shuma-Gorath were captured prior to the events of X-Men vs. Street Fighter.

    Back to the present, Sakura pointed at the man the mighty Ansatsuken Warrior. "THA... THAT'S GOUKI! He works for Apocalypse!" The mountain of a man turned to face them all, as if it was a nuisance to do so. "Hmph. I have no interest in Apocalypse's insane machinations. I merely came here to battle against a mighty opponent." Gouki lifted his right hand and looked at it. His bent fingers moved with excitement, like he was crushing a ball of sorts. His body started to radiate with red energy. "A man they say, who spins a web any size. Catches thieves just like flies." "Spa, Spider-Man?" Questioned Sakura.

    "Okay we've just about heard enough pal," said the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who was behind the wheel. Both him and his partner stepped out of their vehicle and went in front of Sakura, pointing their guns at Gouki. "Put your hands where I can see them, NOW!"

    Around the same time, hundreds of feet below the City in its underground tunnels hordes of people were making their way down the dark and rat infested corridor. Many of them were injured and wounded. Some people were carrying others that were too weak to walk themselves.

    The Morlocks, Mutants that that call this area home were helping people finding their way back to the surface. Two of the women on site were Callisto who has an eye patch over her right eye and a scar below her left. She has spiky black hair and is clad in leather with the exception of a white T-Shirt. With her was Marrow (same Marrow from MVC2), a young pre-teen with short red hair. She wore a tattered one piece light green jump suit. Marrow's Mutant power caused abnormal bone growths that varied from day to day, and right now the left side of her skull was growing outside of her face making her look like a monster.

    "Everyone continue remaining calm. The ladder that will take you back to the surface world isn't much farther," directed Callisto. "So a big quake erupts and a few subway trains fall down to our tunnels. And we Morlocks, hideously deformed Mutants society has forced to live underground are helping the flatscan survivors? If the shoe was on the other foot they would lead us all down to a concentration camp! We should leave them be and let the rats feed on their carcasses for all I care!" "Marrow, this is what Storm would've wanted." "Storm? She no longer leads the Morlocks, you do Callisto." "Even so, perhaps her time in charge has influenced me. The X-Men are fighting for a world where we will be free to live on the surface world. Letting hundreds die in these tunnels thanks to Apocalypse will not aid that cause."

    Marrow yanked a large bone from her shoulder. She cursed under her breath while picking her teeth clean with its jagged edge. A small child from the crowd stopped to look at Marrow, and she in turn snarled at him like a beast! The little boy cried and his mother who was holding his hand picked him up to comfort him while they continued to move ahead. Callisto shot Marrow an angry look. "What," was her only response and she rested her back against a wall continuing to pick her teeth.

    Mixed up in the crowd was a young Japanese teenager wearing a purple high school uniform. He carried with him a white bag that had a strap so he could carry it across his shoulder. He wore large glasses and had white sandals on his feet. There was a huge mole on the side of his nose and his head was rather big compared to the rest of his body.

    "Why me fate? You are a cruel mistress that will not return my phone calls just like every other girl I've ever met!" The young man rambled out loud to himself. "I get to spend the Summer in New York thanks to accompanying my father on his business trip, but I haven't met ONE Super-Hero the entire time I've been here! What's worse is that I hacked Interpol's files and I know that my beautiful bride to be Chun-Li has also come to New York, (also at the beginning of the X-Men vs. Street Fighter fic) but I haven't found her either! Now I'm stuck in this tunnel walking for who knows long and.... AAAH WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE?"

    He spots the two Mutants and runs up to him. "Why you must be the beautiful Callisto! The name is Norimaro! It is a pleasure to meet you!" Norimaro takes her right hand and kisses it. The kiss goes on embarrassingly long. "What... Me? Beautiful?" The young man removes his lips from her hand and says, "Yes! I know you from these comic books!" From his bag he pulls out a bunch of X-Men comics that are in protective sleeves and white backboards so no harm will come to them. "Wow in real life you don't look anything like the way Paul Smith drew you, you're much more shapely, like how Joe Madureira depicted you years later!" "But, I'm horribly disfigured, I have an eye patch and a scar..." "Oh PUHLEASE. That's nothing. Why Shadowloo has an Agent named Killer Bee who has a scar who is quite fetching! I have a bunch of pictures of her downloaded on my Hard Drive! Now what's say once this is over you and me head on down to Vegas and get hitched..."

    "BEAT IT YOU ANNOYING TROLL!" snarled Marrow who stepped up to Norimaro. "BLEAH... I guess this is your ugly friend who is miserable and doesn't want to see her friends happy. Leave us alone skeleton bride! I'm sure there is a dog that would like to bury you somewhere!" Marrow was fed up with him and her right arm became a huge skeletal fist (Just as it can in Marvel vs. Capcom 2)! She ran up to Norimaro and gave him a massive uppercut! He flew up in the air and through a manhole on the surface! Norimaro went flying high in the air while yelling screaming at the top of his lungs!

    "WE ARE NOT GOING TO WARN YOU AGAIN BUCKO! PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE SKY!" The red energy surrounding Gouki came to a halt and he held his fists into his sides. "COME!" he stated and the agent who came from the passenger side of the vehicle said "That does it!" Both of the men started firing shots at Gouki but he teleported and zipped around the bullets from left to right like it was nothing! When he approached the agent towards his left, Gouki grabbed his gun and snapped it in half with one hand! Also with his left arm he gave him an elbow to his mid section sending him flying back so he struck the parked S.H.I.E.L.D. vehicle with his back, flipped over it and landed on the hard cement street out cold! A spin kick to the helmet of the other Agent sent him crashing through a window of a nearby clothing store! It took less than two seconds for Gouki to defeat these two agents! Sakura was frozen with fear and couldn't move a muscle!

    "AAAAAAAAAAAAH," was the yell that was coming from the air, and the sound was getting louder and louder. Gouki did his Ashura Warp and moved to the side about five feet, sensing that someone was about to fall in him.

    Norimaro continued to yell while his body flipped through the air, he waved his arms and moved his huge head like a maniac at such an alarming rate that it caused his body to move a few feet more through the air! His spinning head wound up colliding with Gouki's head and he knocked the Ansatsuken Master out!

    Gouki lied there on Fifth Avenue face first, Norimaro got up holding his head. "Ah, did anyone get the license plate of that Lockheed Aircraft, ouch!" "NORIMARO? What are you doing here?" Sakura then thought to herself, "Oh no, it's that annoying kid from Teikyo High that keeps flirting with me and Kei..." "SAKURA CHAN? And this on the floor, is Gouki?" Norimaro put one foot on Gouki's back! "I the great Norimaro future king of Planet Earth have defeated the legendary Gouki for you my beautiful Sakura chan! Now give me a great big kiss!" The freakish looking high schooler closed his eyes, put his arms out and started blowing kisses in the air. There was an excess amount of saliva gushing out. "But, I thought you liked Chun-Li more..." "CHUN-LI? Oh no, she's more like my Moto-Kano, you know Ex-Girlfried! You Sakura chan are my future!" "Yeah, I think you have to actually date Chun-Li for her to be an Ex-Girlfriend..." "Oooh, I love it when you get jealous! What's say we head on down to Vegas and get hitched! Kei can be Maid of Honor, but I wouldn't want to her to feel left out so I can take on two wives..."

    Gouki rose up INFURIATED knocking Norimaro far off his back! His menacing red aura was back as he postured with utter rage! "ENOUGH OF YOUR BUFFOONERY! I WILL DESTROY YOU!"


    *******


    Next Up: Norimaro vs. Gouki! I know what you're thinking. How is someone so weak gonna take on someone so strong. Poor Gouki... J/K! Spider-Man will also return! Next chapter's gonna be alot of fun! I'm planning on having it up early in March. Info Bytes coming soon!

    Radioactive Bytes: First off I always hated the name Info Bytes. It was just there until I could think of a better name for this section, so I will just call it 'radioactive bytes' after you know, the radioactive bite that gave Spider-Man his powers lol!

    S.H.I.E.L.D. outfits a lot of the time nowadays tend to be dark gray or black and white, but since this story is set in the 90s I wanted them back in their blue and orange suits. The Flying Cars, you don't see them too much nowadays in Marvel comics. Last time I saw one was in Brubaker's Captain America comic roughly 2 years ago. But S.H.I.E.L.D. does still have them. And hey Rockman AKA Mega Man gets flying cars too, they are also in Strider 2 so come MVC1 when those characters show up, such a thing is possible in this world! Real life, well... I've been waiting to see an actual flying car for years man someone make one! Real life you are ruining all of our Future stories MAAAN! :P

    The Fair in Tokyo that Sakura went to is modeled after the same Fair Ranma went to in the Ranma 1/2 anime episode "Behold! The 'Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire' Technique." I've been to Japan, but never to a Fair over there so it was hard for me to come up with one all by myself. During my research I learned that there are Fairs in Ueno Park, good enough for me, especially for fiction I guess heh.... In that Ranma episode there was a vendor who ran a similar game where you catch fish, so that was in this fic as well. The manga goes in more detail but I have lots of comics so it will take me a while to look up what Fair it was exactly.... But the anime made it a generic Fair so that worked for me. There's also a drawing from Capcom where Sakura was attending a Fair like this, clad in a kimono and carrying masks of other characters. It was done by Maeda Shima for Street Fighter Zero 2 and if you have the softcover of Studio Udon's translation of the SF Tribute Album it's there on page 101. It was one of those drawings that had a strong effect on me, so I wanted some of that flavor here even if she wasn't wearing a kimono and stuff.

    As you can tell Sakura is dabbling with a darker side. In the game, the alternate Sakura having Gouki's moves and stuff is kind of a joke, her name translates to something like "Sun Tan Sakura" so her darker shade is due to sun exposure. But I didn't want to do that here, so she will battle with Satsui No Hadou.

    Yeah Gouki knows part of the Spider-Man song HA HA HA! Yep I've been working on this thing for years just trying to get up to that part ROFL! I'm a huge Spider-Man nerd if you haven't figured that out by now LOL! For those that will recall towards the end of my X-Men vs. Street Fighter fan fic Gouki did say he was traveling to NY because there was a certain spider he wished to squash. Like a REAL obvious hint that he was going to NY to fight Spider-Man.

    The Morlocks I've been using rather generically, not paying a lot of attention to what was going on with them in the books at the time. So if you watched the 90s cartoon it's the same situation. Storm lead them for a while and leadership went back to Callisto. The same thing does happen in the comics, but Morlocks went through a lot of changes and stuff.

    Marrow was a Morlock and was with Callisto early on. Her outfit isn't the same as the one she had in MVC2 since that comes after she joins the X-Men for a time, which happens sometime after this story. And even as an X-Men she's always been rather angry...

    Norimaro is in the Japanese version of Marvel Super-Heroes vs. Street Fighter, which is the version that I have for the Sega Saturn. I just had to give him a part in this story! If you only have the English version and wish to check him out, there's YouTube vids of him and he like every other 2D sprite ever created LOL has Mugen YouTube vids too.

    Norimaro isn't breaking the fourth wall with the X-Men comics he pulls out, well he is a little but not to the extent that say, Deadpool and She-Hulk have done in the past. There are Marvel comics within the Marvel Universe and they have even shown writers and artists within their stories. Like I pointed out before Captain America even drew Captain America comics. Though of course the Marvel comics in the Marvel Universe aren't exactly like the ones we read, because if they were everyone would know everyone's secret identity for one. At one point, Marvel tried to put out how Marvel comics were in the Marvel Universe, the X-Men were bad, Spider-Man was bad, things like that. I think that's a more accurate take on it. And yeah Paul Smith was the first to draw Callisto. Joe Madureira, he doesn't tackle the character until YEARS later, and I mean years after the timeline I'm trying to depict here. Though since I'm trying to imply that their comics are not exactly like ours I'm just having a bit of fun. But he drew her rather shapely, I think he can't draw an ugly woman if he tried HA HA! Oh and Joe Madureira also did the very first back up story in Studio Udon's comic, the Ryu vs. Sagat fight so it's a fun name to mention heh! But yeah I think this sort of thing is like seeing the Capcom logo within Capcom games somewhere, or Sakura playing Pocket Fighter in the first Street Fighter Zero / Alpha anime.

    Norimaro is a character created by Noritake Kinashi of the comedy troop The Tunnels. The term "Moto-Kano" was an abbreviation of 'Ex-Girlfriend' that his comedic troop made that is still used in Japan today so I did work that in here heh! In real life Noritake Kinashi attended Teikyo High School so that's the same school he's attending in this fic. I have no idea if the character he created Norimaro has living parents of any sort, but I needed an excuse to get him into NY. I tried to go the Foreign Exchange Student route and went through a heck of a lot of headaches finding the right teenage Marvel or Capcom character for him to stay with, no one really worked out in the end. I was not gonna have him stay with a character I made up, I try to refrain from stuff like that as much as possible. So I went the whole 'traveling during the Summer with his Father' route.

    Hmm, I think I never said what season this whole thing takes place until now. Though yeah Summer makes sense so Sakura and Norimaro are not ditching school I suppose.

    Oh and Norimaro constantly proposing and getting knocked out of a sewer are themes I used when he appeared in my old Capcom Fighting All Stars Fan Fic! Now I have borrowed (um... ripped off, whistle, whistle...) a lot of things from a lot of people but I dunno man I think this Sano person might sue my pants off one day... :P


    *******

    Guess that's all for now. See you guys in March! ^_^

    Regular time keeping post no one cares about but I like to jot down here for easy reference at times lol!

    Gouken in SF4 discussion is currently going around in the Warrior's Fate thread. http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=173 So for those that believe that he is the real deal and still alive, they are going with he fell down a waterfall, hit his head and had amnesia. The problem with that theory is what vasili10 pointed out, the fight at the waterfall has never been in an official Japanese source, that came from EGM's Sheng Long jokes. It looks like we still don't know if this scenario is true or not. But if it is true, it's a big retcon on Capcom's part. Though it would be a retcon that changes official sources and nothing in the games themselves like what the cases for Rose and Gen might be. Video games do this pretty often actually.

    So we don't know if the above is true or if he is a clone, found a way to rise from the grave and stuff...

    His fate in this pocket universe and his death as it occurred during X-Men vs. SF will remain unchanged for now. Like I said before, it doesn't matter here unless Gouken shows up in a potential MVC3 really. I mean I've already had 2 characters survive SGS, someone needs to die from it... :wonder: I guess if for whatever reason you want to tie SF4 into whatever I'm doing lol and want something crazier then a clone, how about a new strain of the T/G-Virus (Resident Evil, Jill is in MVC2) bringing him back? Or aliens curing and replacing his corpse (Colossus in X-Men)? Or Ingrid, Bishop, Cable, Rachel Summers Phoenix etc. screwing with time? Or Superboy Prime punching out reality? Okay the last one is a different universe lol but DC comics did use that one to bring Robin #2, Jason Todd back to life! I'm sure Norimaro is strong enough to punch through reality eh? :rofl:

    As a gamer I really don't care that Gouken is back. In fact I have to admit, the first time I saw someone reach him in the arcades I was giddy like a little school girl STORYLINE BE DAMNED! :lovin: I swear SF4 is one of the greatest video games EVER. :clapdos:

    Now for Marvel related headaches lol!

    In the newest issue of Spider-Man Family #4 written by the great DeMatteis, he wrote a story of when Harry Osborn first approached Peter Parker, see he was dead in comics for years and now he's alive again. Gouken you are not alone and oh yeah, you can totally use a Norman (Green Goblin) and Mysterio team-up to bring you back like Harry did ROFL! Well DeMattais was the one to off Harry several years ago, it was fitting he got to tell this story.

    Harry told Spider-Man he 'died' three years ago. DeMatteis shows that he's a really competent writer by picking that number, or it was blind luck, I dunno. :smile: To shed some light on this, Harry died just before Maximum Carnage. So naturally we do have to cram a lot of storylines in 3 years but that's how HYPER-TIME works. :looney: Still, if you go by the years laid out in the books - http://www.spideykicksbutt.com/SpiderMan101/SpiderMan101Part6.html - Spider-Man was about 27 at the end of the Clone Saga. If we say Harry's death, Max Carnage, fake parents saga and the Clone Saga happened in the same year (Clone Saga can't last long really due to MJ's pregnancy) then 3 years later that puts Spider-Man at 30 where most fans put Spidey anyway! :party:

    Could be simpler than all of that and stuff. Harry's son little Normie was not shown to have aged much, more than 3 years would be hard to swallow. Course child guest stars never age. Artie, Leech, and it seems like no one can decide if the Lizard's son Billy Connors is a teenager now (um, he should be at least) or if he is the same exact freaking age he was during the Lee/Ditko (original Amazing Spider-Man run in the 60s) days. Don't get me started on never aging Franklin Richards... :clown:

    Marvel does like to say that Spider-Man's 25-26, the problem with that is that it contradicts a lot of numbers given in books and he did 4 years of college which would age him to be 21. You wind up cramming a heck of a lot more into 4/5 years. Me I say he's 30 heh! Still younger than me though... :sad:

    Of course with any year numbers you can get from any Marvel character, it becomes hella problematic when you try to extend it to other characters. Three years from that point in X-Men to right now is almost laughable. But at best you can say the Marvel Universe is over 10 + years now, from the time Captain America awoke from the ice, the Fantastic Four formed, X-Men formed, Spidey got his powers, etc. Less than 10 years is hard to accept IMHO. Last number I saw in a book, during Civil War Reed Richards said they got their powers when they traveled to outer space 12 years ago. That number's a little low for me but with the case of never aging Franklin Richards then keeping the years low seems to help.

    So to bring this back around to this story, I placed Spider-Man's involvement just after Harry's death and right before Maximum Carnage! So this story is only three years behind whatever Marvel is doing right now, if you want it to be! :looney:

    But... in a SF sense three years later would be SF2 lol! Ah well, for lots of reasons I will get into later I'm not going to skip 3 years between this story and SF2 for the case of MVC1 - which has SF2 Ryu, red headband. I might skip a year and a few months or so. Three years is way too much Marvel time. Oh and in the MVC1 artwork, Ryu still looks pretty young, which is most likely because his sprite remained the same save for coloring his headband. So yeah, it's kind of like Studio Udon's world where not too much time happens between SF1 and SF2. Or Namco x Capcom where the events of SFZ3 and SF2 overlap. Not the events will overlap here, but the timing will be close.

    I do depict this story as happening during Marvel's 10th year, or that's where I'm trying to shoot. So for me, Spidey's 25 during this story since he got his powers at 15. Time for me is a bit off but with certain Marvel storylines I will delay for a bit, it may add up just about the same. Like the Clone Saga here will be held off for a while, this universe will always take place before it. In one of the games Spidey does make a joke about Clones lol, but I don't even know how to touch that because of different outfits, Spidey loosing his powers and Ben Reilly taking over the Spidey role, etc. Then when it ends, there are so many things in the book that I just do not like and I don't want to go near like Mary Jane's fake death, the loss of her baby, etc... So putting things right after the Clone saga will have me doing major rewrites of Spidey-lore just so I can sleep at night... I would really skip ahead to when JMS starts writing Amazing Spider-Man, where things get better... For me it's easier to put things before the Clone Saga.

    Lots of X-Men stuff will also be put off, delayed and altered like I've been doing all along due to the X-Men being really busy bees in the comics and the Capcom games using so many of them. Like always I will try to say when and where changes I make happen to respective universes and why. Obviously, anything I write will always be a universe apart from everything, even Capcom's actual games on these crossovers but I try to go about and make things fit as best as I can. Even if I have to toss away entire storylines sometimes. Some of which I like but it's just hard to make things fit perfectly every time.

    Nowadays I do like the Spider-Girl (M2) Universe better than the regular Spider-Man Universe, Harry STAYS DEAD, Aunt May STAYS DEAD, Spider-Man is STILL MARRIED and his daughter is STILL AROUND! LOL that world really works as the future of the 90s where this story is taking place. Ah well, in my mind no matter what the current Spidey books do Spider-Man's future will still end up the same as Spider-Girl more or less. Oh and put Spider-Man 2099 in there! :looney:

    So SF time, this story happens around 1990 - SFZ/A 3 time. Marvel Hyper-Time, 2006! :sweat: In all seriousness, for me I treat it as if it's happening in 1990. So no cell phones, E-mails, internet, text messaging or things like that. Technology, as far as I go is a laptop which I assume people like Shadowloo and S.H.I.E.L.D. had access to since they are a little more advanced than everyone else. Flying Cars! :cybot:

    Blah blah blah I'll start working on the next entry a week from now. I have time off from work so it should be up soon. :smile:

    Chapter 16: "Revenge of the Nerd!"

    Realizing just how strong Gouki was from the last time they traded blows, Sakura was frozen with fear. Even so, she felt that she had to defeat him at any cost and that Norimaro was no match against him. The high school student slowly raised her gloved fists while gritting her teeth. Her skin tone began to waver from dark to light and her entire body trembled.

    Norimaro stretched out his left hand as far as he could motioning Sakura not to interfere. "Relax Sakura chan! You just hang back and be my personal cheerleader! I the great Norimaro will give Gouki exactly what he wants!" Sakura's flesh stopped flashing a darker shade and she lowered her arms. Part because she feared this dark energy consuming her and part because she was curious about what Norimaro was going to do.

    Gouki ran straight at Norimaro to punch him in the face and it looked like Norimaro was running right into his fist! However, Gouki's right hand stopped a full inch away from the teenager's turned cheek once he felt something just below his chest. When he looked down he saw a piece of paper that Norimaro was holding up against him. There was a black marker on top of it too. "Si... Si.. Sign playa," uttered Norimaro who was cowering in fear. A slap to the forehead while saying "Idiot," and looking down in shame was Sakura's response.

    The ferocious fighter grabbed the large blank sheet of paper from his opponent. His Ki caused the stationary to shred into tiny pieces and the marker to crumble like dust! Norimaro turned around and ran away crying loudly! With his fists balled to his sides, Gouki started to walk after him.

    The frightened 16 year old didn't get very far until he slipped on a banana peel on the street, falling on his face! This sent the banana peel flying back and Gouki slipped on it too, landing on his back! Before the Ansatsuken fighter could get up Norimaro quickly knelt down by his side and counted him out like a referee at a rapid pace! His hand slapped the pavement each time he said a number. "ONETWOTHREEFOURFIVESIXSEVENEIGHTNINETEN YOOOOOU'RE OUT!" With Gouki still on his back Norimaro placed a foot on his chest, lifted his scrawny arms and flexed his muscles. "I'm the winner!"

    Trying his patience, the man in the black gi started to rise up. Norimaro ducked to the ground facing away from him saying "Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!" When he did that the back of his white bag rose up striking Gouki in the chin! Getting even more pissed off, Gouki now fully erect grabbed the bag on one end, pulling the strap and dragging Norimaro closer. But this maneuver made Norimaro angrier than Gouki was! His face turned bright red and he turned to cling to the man who was three times his size! "GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY SUPER FANTASTIC TREASURE!" Still holding on to Gouki he gave him three massive head butts! The last one knocked Gouki down yet again. When he let go of the bag, the short Japanese student who was doing surprisingly well in this fight came to his senses. "What have I done? Gouki is going to kill me! HEEEEEELP!"

    Back on his feet, Gouki said "HMM," as he cupped his hands and fired a white orb of energy at Norimaro. His Gou Hadouken was steadily approaching the young man who was running away and crying like a baby, again!

    Unexpectedly, the glasses wearing geek turned around and stopped the attack with his Hyper Strong Miracle Treasure Super Art! He unzipped his bag and start throwing just about everything in it to stop the fireball! This included his afore mentioned X-Men comics that went up in smoke once the Hadouken touched them, pencils, lollipops, a baby doll, a teddy bear, a triangle, a big compass, a big silver hammer with a green handle, lots of text books, etc. It was quite a collection of stuff that he carried in the bag on a regular basis! There were so many objects that not only did they intercept the fireball and disperse it, many objects leaped over the projectile like a rainbow of junk and hit Gouki! Of course none of the items caused him any damage. Save for possibly a pink lollipop with a white swirl in its center that stuck to his cheek...

    "What is this Super Fantastic Treasure that he tosses away so easily? No. He is not taking objects from the side of the bag I grabbed. No matter, it is time to end this." Gouki thought to himself. He ripped the lollipop off his face and tossed it away. Norimaro was still throwing things at his opponent. It seemed like he would never run out of stuff to throw.

    Teleporting in front of his enemy and striking him with a "SHORYUKEN," was how Gouki decided to end this match. This was a standard rising uppercut move since there was no killing intent behind it, so it wasn't his usual Gou Shoryuken. In fact it was more like a regular Shoryuken attack that Ryu and Ken use all of the time. Gouki had no desire to murder Norimaro at this point. At best he considered him a nuisance and wanted the fight to be over and done with. And it looked like this was what the mighty blow accomplished. Norimaro fell onto the street and was out like a light.

    "NORIMARO!" Sakura started to run towards her injured friend to make sure he was alright, but she stopped once Gouki's eyes met hers. "It is finished. Sakura, show me the power my brother's ignorant pupil is too scared to embrace!"

    "NO! YOU KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY BEAUTIFUL SAKURA CHAN!"

    To everyone's surprise Norimaro was back on his feet! Gouki turned to face him and was stunned! The young boy's face was an even brighter shade of red then it was a few moments ago! "SHORYUKEN," he yelled during his rather poor imitation of the move Gouki just used against him! The difference was that Norimaro struck Gouki with his head instead of his fist! His body was stretched out like he was diving into a swimming pool while he faced front! He rose threw the air at an eleven o'clock angle taking Gouki with him with this mighty head butt as both of their foreheads were interlocked!

    Like most of Norimaro's moves, this was yet another annoyance for Gouki and didn't have much of an impact. He grabbed the young man's neck in the air with one hand and when they fell down he was chocking him. Like a cat shows off a dead mouse, he held Norimaro in front of Sakura. The chocking victim struggled and with his 'Powerful' Rolling Arms move he swung his fists around clockwise and counter clockwise at Gouki, which was about as effective as shooting spitballs against a tank. As the seconds passed Norimaro's movements became slower and slower. Soon his arms stopped moving and his feet aloft in the air remained motionless. Due to lack of oxygen he lost consciousness.

    "HMPH! This is the power one can gain trying to protect someone else. Perhaps if I attempt to squash this insect in front of you Sakura, you will finally give into the Satsui No Hadou. STOP ME IF YOU DARE!" "Satsui... No Hadou? Impossible, I couldn't..." replied Sakura.

    With one punch, Gouki was set to knock Norimaro's head clean off. He reeled his arm back and was set to strike. Sakura's eyes took on a slight red glare and she was starting to get angry. Meanwhile she thought to herself, "Satsui No Hadu... I have... the same power as Ryu?"

    Suddenly Gouki looked up into the sky, lowered his fist and lessened the pressure around Norimaro's neck. Out of curiosity Sakura looked in the same general direction to see what got his attention.

    There was Spider-Man, web swinging across Fifth Avenue and making his way Downtown. He was still wearing his Silver Spider-Armor outfit but both Gouki and Sakura knew it was him. Spidey paid them no notice when he was swinging by since from his height and distance they looked like small action figures at best.

    "I found what I was looking for. Norimaro, today is your lucky day." Like an unwanted toy, Gouki flung the young teenager onto the sidewalk. He held one arm up in the air and fired a Hadouken at Spider-Man!

    "Spider-Sense," said the webbed wonder who looked to his side to see the Hadouken. Still, even his sixth sense was too late to warn him about the fast moving projectile, especially since he just let go of a webline and was about to create another. It was too late for him to dodge. The fireball struck him and he went falling down behind a building that was beyond Gouki's sight! So Gouki performed his Ashura Warp and followed the hero who was a great distance away.

    "Norimaro, are you okay?" Sakura held him in her arms a few feet off the ground. She shook him slightly to wake him up. "Ugh... Sakura Chan! Did I win?" Tears welled up in the young girl's eyes. "You know I hate to admit it, but you had some awesome moves back there Norimaro kun!" "Ooooh, Sakura chan! I'm so glad Gouki didn't harm my Super Fantastic Treasure!" "Your Super Fantastic Treasure?"

    Norimaro got up and dug around his white bag, which still had quite a few items. He unzipping a small pocket that was inside of it, close to the side of the bag that Gouki grabbed earlier on. He pulled out his Super Fantastic Treasure which turned out to be a small black box. Next he took off his school uniform and underneath he was wearing a black tuxedo complete with a bowtie! Norimaro opened up the little black box to reveal a diamond ring! Next he tried to hug Sakura and yelled "MARRY MEEEEEE!" She in turn gave him a giant uppercut just like when Marrow struck him earlier! Norimaro went flying high into the sky once again. "Jerk," she said with closed eyes and an angry expression on her face. Her fist remained in the air longer than it needed to. Norimaro continued to yell as he flew higher and higher into the night sky.

    Sakura ran down the street trying to catch up to Gouki and Spider-Man.


    *******


    Next Up: The entire chapter is based off of Norimaro's movelist so not much more for me to say, FOR ONCE lol! Next time, Spider-Man vs. Gouki! Apocalypse and Shuma-Gorath will show up along with one of the Four Horseman of Apocalypse. I'll try to put the next chapter up in April if all goes. See you in thirty!

    Usual pointless bump to let you know I'm working on the next chapter lol! :looney:

    Hey I spoke a bit about Hitler, on how he is possibly revived in Bionic Commando Rearmed. Heh, didn't know that Marvel revived him too as the Hate-Monger lol! :lol:

    http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hate-Monger_(Adolf_Hitler)

    Working on something interesting in the background, trying to figure out the history of the world where this story takes place. A world where the Marvel comics universe takes place along with he majority of Capcom games. Meshing a lot of things together, started from 4.5 Billion years ago and got all the way to 1980... :looney: I will go up to about the 1990s when it's done. It's been fun combining things and putting stuff together. I'll toss it up here after the fic is finished. Something like this needs A LOT of tweaking so the longer I spend time on it the better... :sweat:

    This was an interesting tidbit I found in Hellstorm's bio in The Official Handbook Of The Marvel Universe: Horror 2005.

    "Though demons are notorious liars, more reliable sources trace the genesis of the Class Two Demons (Hell-Lords) to the primeval concentration of evil energy left behind when Demogorge drove the Elder Gods from Earth billions of years ago. That energy eventually gave rise to demons, shaped by the unconscious desires of their earliest human worshippers. These included at least Mephisto, Satannish, and Thog, though many others followed, each ruling their own nether realms. Other Hell-Lords arose from fallen gods and angels, such as Lucifer, cast down from Heaven. Marduk Kurios was worshipped by the ancient Sumerians thousands of years ago. It is unclear whether some Mesopotamium Gods (Annunaki) may have usurped names and worshippers of demonic predecessors (as the Egyptian Seth did to the Elder God Set), whether some gods degenerated into demons or assumed alternate roles such as false angels after being deprived of worshippers in later millenia, and/or if gods may have split off demonic counterparts, or vice-versa. Regardless, the above mentioned demons and many others capitalized on the eventual human belief in a single lord of evil, Satan, each claiming to be that being and naming their realms Hell. Numerous, often unidentifiable, Satans and Devils have encountered humanity throughout history."

    So yeah I figure that's how things would work in an extended Marvel/Capcom universe. Plenty of room for characters like Belail, Jedah and whoever Arthur battles in the Ghouls And Ghosts games, since by the time MVC1 rolls around characters from those franchises will show up heh!

    Marvel also uses both Dracula and Frankenstein's monster, well I figure since Dracula is CONSTANTLY destroyed in Marvel and Frankenstein's monster is CONSTANTLY getting frozen - Don't see it as being a problem that both of them are absent during Darkstalker games. :rofl: Demitri's castle is supposed to be hidden within the mountains of Transylvania, I guess so long as Dracula stays out of his way and Demitri just sticks to kidnapping maidens well, probably wouldn't have a problem living in a Marvel/Capcom world together with the other vampires. As for Frankenstien's monster, check out this note in his Horror 2005 Bio:

    "Note: A number of other Frankensteins and similar monsters have been reported, but chronology and analyses of these remains incomplete."

    Frankenstein and Victor of Darkstalkers can co-exist in this world, HOORAY! :tup:

    Yes pointlessly talking about Hitler and demons will get everyone to forgive me for not updating this fic, BRILLIANT! :blush:

    Starting to work on Spidey vs. Gouki now, hopefully it will be up in a few weeks. In the meantime, special thanks to Wellman for showing me this. Just in case you need to get used to Spider-Man yelling out moves before he does them LOL check out the Japanese Spider-Man T.V. Show.

    Progress report - The Gouki vs. Spider-Man fight is all written up, came to a whopping 22 hand written pages lol I use big letters. :looney: So when I type it up here, the fight will be cut up into 2 or 3 chapters but as usual I will try to get all the chapters that cover that fight on the same day.

    Due to things going on in real life, there's no way I can toss up the fight here today and right now the earliest I can get to it will be Sunday. I am going to try to get it up some time next week or the week after.

    So I guess that will be May and I miss my own self imposed April deadline... Oh well only by a few weeks... :sweat: Sorry about the delays, hopefully it will up fairly soon if all goes. :tup:

    Yeah looks like MVC2 is gonna be announced as a downloadable title for X-Box Live and PSN soon, just in case you've been living in a cave or something lol! Keep on eye on "Take You For A Ride" dot com AKA Tu4ar.com ROFL! I guess this is only if you've been living in a cave, the news is like everywhere. :wonder: http://www.tu4ar.com/

    Pretty excited and looking forward to it! Hooking up my Sega Saturn that's been modded to play Japanese games or my Dreamcast every time I want to re-check something simple like a fighting stance for fan fic writing purposes is a serious pain in the butt lol! :rofl: Would be nice to just turn on a next gen system to check little things here and there for Marvel characters. :smile:

    Chapter 17: "Along Came A Spider-Man!"

    "OUCH! OOCH! OWE! MY BACK! OWE!"

    Gouki's fireball sent Armor suit wearing Spider-Man soaring down to a back alley. In this corner with two adjoined buildings on either side and one in the the center he bounced off the walls like a billiard ball. He severed a few clotheslines during his decent. Zigging and zagging and slamming against bricks, his fall ended when he landed into a large green dumpster that was pushed against the back wall of the alley. After the bags of garbage broke his fall the lid closed shut.

    Spider-Man, whose real name is Peter Parker opened the lid and crawled out of the dumpster. His silver white Spider-Armor was now very dirty with splotches of brown all around. There was an open banana peel resting on his head to boot.

    "Ah... Guess I could've webbed myself to safety, but a fella can snap his arm with a quick jerk like that. Figured the armor could take another fall. Still hurt a little though..."

    He pushed an area underneath his left Web-Shooter and just below his left wrist. In a flash of light, his Spider-Armor was concealed once again and Spidey was seen wearing his famous red and blue outfit.

    "Wow, all traces of garbage seemed to have vanished. I don't even smell bad! That'll save me some money on tomato juice!"

    Gouki appeared in front of him all of a sudden. With one hand across his chest, another to his side and his knees bent; his intentions were very clear.

    "Spider-Man! I am Gouki, Master of the Fist! I am power made flesh! Feel how weak you truly are!"

    "Me, weak? Come to think of it, I haven't had my daily wheat cakes this morning. So, lemme guess. You want revenge against me because I had you arrested for... having a bad hair day?" "I merely wish to test the limits of my strength and fight against worthy opponents!" "Fascinating... I hear the CWA's looking for new wrestlers..."

    "MESATS'!"

    Not wasting any time, Gouki started strong with his Messatsu Gou Hadou Super Art! With this powerful projectile maneuver he fired a gigantic column of white light from his hands right at Spider-Man! Since his Spider-Sense warned him in time, our costumed hero was able to leap away and stick to the wall behind him with his Sankaku Tobi move. This wall jump is different from the one Chun-Li is known to perform since Spider-Man is able to stick to the wall with ease.

    The projectile totally missed Spider-Man but destroyed the green dumpster that was now beneath him! The large container exploded and whatever small pieces were not disintegrated by the blow were covered in small flames.

    "That... energy... It feels like the same source of power that knocked me out of the sky!" "Enough! Let us finish this!"

    Aunt May's favorite nephew leaped right in front of Gouki, still not taking him very seriously. The Ansatsuken practitioner tried to punch and kick Spider-Man about twenty times in rapid succession. It was of no use however. Because of Peter Parker's sixth sense, he was able to bob, weave, duck, jump and leap every move in time. For the superhero who gained his amazing powers at the age of 15 thanks to a radioactive spider bite, it was almost as if Gouki was moving in slow motion.

    Spidey kept flapping his gums the entire time he was dodging the blows. "Now I remember you! You're one of those Troll Dolls people like to keep on their desks in the work place! Not really a 9 to 5 guy, took me a while to figure that out. Or... to come up with that joke... Listen up chuckles, you're never gonna land a single blow. So how about you go practice catching flies with chopsticks or whatever wild and crazy things you Pat Morita types do on Friday nights..."

    The red and blue costumed vigilante would never finish that sentence. One thing about Gouki, he can adapt to any situation during a fight at an incredibly fast rate. Charging Ki into his left forearm, he was able to punch Spider-Man in his stomach faster than he could dodge it! The thrusting blow sent him soaring back! He flew to the area that garbage bin used to be and broke through a brick wall leaving a giant hole! Going back several feet he slammed against the rectangular base of a metallic boiler in what appeared to be a dark and dingy basement! Spider-Man's back left a huge dent in the boiler!

    Staggering, yet still managing to walk out of the building, Peter rubbed his abdomen to ease the blow. "Ugh... picked a fine time to turn my Spider-Armor off... Wow, for a Samurai Pizza Cat reject you punch almost as hard as the Hulk! How'd you get your powers? I know! You were bitten by a radioactive Bruce Lee DVD!"

    "I have harnessed my abilities through training and training alone. Come at me without abandon or your life will end where you stand!"

    The superhero who has saved New York City and the entire world several times in the past stopped joking around and took a few seconds to see how Gouki measured up. Looking into his red eyes, Spider-Man could tell that he was a man who would not hesitate to murder someone in a fight. Even though his fighting stance seemed open in several areas, Spidey could also tell that he had no real weaknesses. The costumed crime fighter may not have had actual Martial Arts training but thanks to having fought against so many villains over the years he gained a natural ability to size up his opponents. Even if he did misjudge Gouki at first.

    "A few of my super powered friends are missing and I have a family of my own I need to check up on. Gouki, if you really want me to fight you without holding back then I'll have no problem taking you down quickly so I can turn my attention to other matters." "COME," was his adversary's only response.

    Our hero and husband to Mary Jane assumed his own fighting stance and it wasn't like anything Gouki had ever witnessed in his entire life. He crouched down really low to the ground. One arm was raised above his head. His index and pinky fingers were raised up while his two other digits were lowered and touching his palm. His thumb was off to the side. His other hand that was close to the ground had his fingers in the same position. The reason Spider-Man assumed this pose during fights was because with a flick of a few fingers he could fire a line of webbing at a moment's notice.

    Performing a Forward Dash Spider-Man jumped in front of Gouki. With his newly increased speed the demonic looking man struck Spider-Man with a Jab. Normally this Light Punch would strike an opponent in the face, but with Spidey's lowered stance it connected with his raised hand! This suited Ryu and Ken's greatest enemy just fine since he didn't want webs being fired at him any time soon. Quickly he sent a Short Kick to his lowered shoulder. Crouching down for another Light Kick he struck Spidey's other lowered hand! Still crouching he ended this speedy four hit combo with a punch to Spider-Man's cheek causing his teeth to rattle!

    The bones in his hands and shoulder were aching with this quick combination that took less than one second. Yet Spidey knew he had to act quickly or he was done for. "HA!" he let out while his Forward Kick smacked Gouki in the face! Usually pulling his punches when he's fighting non super powered opponents, he wasn't doing this against the Martial Artist since he could tell that Gouki could handle a lot more than normal humans could. A kick like this could shatter an average man's skull but all it did this time around was cause a short headache.

    Gouki performed his Backward Dash which looks like his Ashura Warp only he doesn't leave shadow images of himself. He jumped high in the sky and came at Spider-Man with his Tenma Kuukin Kyaku. This aerial kick was heading towards the red and blue wonder from a two o'clock angle.

    "WEB THROW!" His hands might have been hurting but Peter Parker was also very good at taking punishment. With his Medium Punch Web Throw move he shot a web at Gouki's extended leg interrupting his kick! Then like a cowboy performing a lasso trick, the Daily Bugle Photographer spun him around in the air! Since they were in a confined space, Gouki's head kept slamming against both walls in the alley while he was circling around! During his last spin, his head struck the top of the hole Spider-Man created when Gouki knocked him through the building! This knocked even more bricks from the gapping hole increasing its size! Before the spin was over the black gi wearing warrior's head slammed another side of a wall (both sides of the walls now had cracks in them) and Spider-Man flung him away! Gouki did a back flip in the air, soared past the sidewalk and landed in the center of the street. Landing on his feet, he put his arms and fists to his sides. He assumed a rather neutral pose.

    "HEY!" "C-MON!" Bouncing around while in his fighting stance, Spider-Man taunted him twice. Pointing each time he used his one word taunts. Gaining a bit of confidence and thinking that Gouki was about to surrender, he started to run his mouth again.

    "What is it with guys with crazy haircuts? Well at least you don't have a little mustache and run around screaming 'SPIDER-MAN IS A MENACE!' like a lunatic. Had enough tough guy? 'Cuz I gotta warn you. I know Kung Fu, Karate and several other dangerous words! Oh yeah float like a Spider and sting like a... SPIDER! This one's for JJ!"

    "SILENCE!" His scream got Spider-Man to shut up for a bit. Many a villain can tell you that during fights Spider-Man can talk non-stop for hours on end. He usually does this to annoy his foes and throw them off their game, but this tactic really isn't proving to be very effective at the moment.

    "...I merely stopped because I noticed an interloper in our mist. I would have sensed him earlier if he were not entirely mechanical."

    With a look up in the sky he could see what Gouki saw while he was flipping through the air. On top of a small store across the street stood one of Shadowloo's Monitor Cyborgs. The robot wore a short brown trench coat that ended around his knees. There was a large yellow stripe going through the bottom of the coat. There was another stripe that was little below the chest area that extended to his sleeves and there were stripes on the cuffs too. The Cyborg also had brown galoshes which had a similar yellow stripe going across their tops. He had a hat that looked like a low fedora, something a person would use to shield himself from the rain.

    Spider-Sense tends to warn our hero whenever someone is watching him when he is about to enter his apartment. In which case he'll loop around the city a few times until the coast is clear or change out of his outfit when no one is around. Of course if a person is around or watching him while he's changing his outfits, his sixth sense would warn him about that too. However, since the Monitor Cyborg presented no immediate threat to either his safety or his identity he went unnoticed by our friendly neighborhood fighter.

    Aware that he was spotted, the Monitor Cyborg clumsily decided to walk away. It turned to his side and walked to his right, as if that would make any difference. Gouki didn't even bother to face it. He stretched out his left hand behind his back and similar to how he knocked down Spider-Armor wearing Spider-Man earlier, he fired off a one handed Hadouken at the robot. The orb of power make contact with the Cyborg and blew him to smithereens.

    Gouki took his fighting stance and urged, "Let us continue!"


    *******

    Radioactive Bytes: Spider-Man crashing and landing down the alley is a nod to the second Spider-Man movie as you may have guessed.

    His comment about tomato juice is from the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon where JJJ gives him that advice, to remove a garbage smell from himself. Hey how does JJJ know that? Must of crawled in a lot of dumpsters back when he was a reporter ha ha!

    Gouki's "I am power made flesh! Feel how weak you truly are!" quote is from the SF Zero series, he says that if you meet the conditions to fight against him.

    Spider-Man's comments about wheat cakes lol! In his first appearance ever in Amazing Spider-Man #15 that was said to be his favorite food. Longtime Spidey fans joke about that a lot! WHEEEEAT CAAAAKES! Rofl!

    The CWA stands for the Capcom Wrestling Federation. That's the organization behind the Slam Masters games. Having a little fun with this crossover world. :P

    In case you've never seen what a Troll Doll looks like. Kind of does look like Gouki HA HA!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_Dolls

    Quite a few people do keep those things on their desks at work! Even characters on TV shows like Synclair on Living Single and Mimi on The Drew Carey show have been known to keep their desks full of those things. Me I had Capcom toys on my desk at work until a new boss came down and had us take down all of our desk ornaments, booo....

    Pat Morita joke was a reference to the movie Karate Kid. RIP Noriyuki Pat Morita.

    Samurai Pizza Cats actually started airing in 1991 in the US and I'm depicting this as taking place in 1990, but hey the Japanese version Kyatt? Ninden Teyandee aired in 1990, close enough! Course the other problem being that Tatsunoko owns that series and if you think TVC would ideally take place in the same universe as this series and shouldn't just be a TV show Spider-Man knew of... Um... I hear there's lots of legal stuff that stopped them from being in TVC? And even if they were to fit... Not sure how they would fit in a world where Marvel and Capcom characters live? Then again Yatterman characters and that Genie character might be stretching things... Ack I guess it's not an issue until the cats show up in TVC 2 and even then, maybe they come from a different dimension? All of this hassle just so I can have Spidey make fun of Gouki. :P

    Bruce Lee DVD LOL DVDs were not around in 1990. At least not available to the public. But when it comes to comedy I tend to follow the 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' rule. Remember when Roger slipped out of the cuffs and said he waited until that time to do it because he said it was funny? So yeah that's usually my way of thinking with comedy. So long as you get a laugh then it's okay if you mess around with what was and wasn't around the time frame you are depicting and stuff. Guess this world already has laptops and CD-Roms (Wolverine stepped on a CD-Rom during the X-Men vs. SF fic) so DVDs are okay heh... Hey if I mentioned a Bruce Lee VHS, how many people wouldn't know what I was talking about? Ack I feel old once again... -_- J/K!

    The "HEY!" and "C'MON!" quotes are from the game. When Spidey says "C'MON!" the word balloon reads "C'MON PAL!" Well I just had him say "C'MON!" just like his voice actor does. Boy his win quote where he says "This one's for JJ!" is hard to use in fighting game fan fic. Unless a guy gets knocked out and no one is around there's no way he'd take a picture like that and say JJ's name out loud... That's almost like holding up a sign saying "I'm really Peter Parker!" His camera tends to be hidden to keep his identity. But it's a classic gaming line, had to web-stick it in somewhere lol!

    Spider-Man's quote about knowing "...Kung Fu, Karate and several other dangerous words!" was taken from Peter David's Spider-Man 2099 where that Spider-Man (a Spider-Man of a possible future) said that to a samurai villain named The Specialist in issue #5. Couldn't resist using those words against Gouki heh!

    The Monitor Cyborg is described to look exactly like the Monitor Cyborg that was standing on a building and was watching Chun-Li in the Street Fighter II Animated Movie. I know fans of Q look for him everywhere so I took a little more time describing his clothes so people would not say that I put Q in this fic. For the one billionth time that is not Q in Ken's SF2 background LOL! Hmmm maybe all I had to do was type 'not Q' in parenthesis... :P

    Writers across the years never agree on how Spider-Man's Spider-Sense actually works. I described it the way I think it works. I know under some writers he would've sensed the Monitor Cyborg right away. Me, I believe that as long as he is not in immediate danger it won't go off. Just my interpretation of it. Again how this sixth sense works will differ depending on who is writing him. Wolverine's healing factor is kind of in the same boat. It's just one of those things that goes along with long running characters that have had many writers working on them over several years.


    *******

    NEXT UP: Couldn't get to covering the rest of the fight today so I'm shooting for either Saturday or Sunday. So it should be up in a few days or so. Thanks for your patience!

    Chapter 18: "This One's For SRK!"

    In a secret location, Apocalypse stood in a large room covered with white sheet metal. Standing erect with his arms folded, before him was a giant rectangular computer screen. The monitor displayed a map of the Earth. There were red dots that marked a few areas. One on Savage Land in Antarctica, another on Madripoor and the last one was in Florida over Cape Citadel. Basically the two areas he had Island Smashers placed and another over the military base he took over.

    Sitting in front of the screen were two people who kept a closer eye on activities around the world. One was the Shadowloo Scientist Doctor Senoh and sitting in another chair that was about about ten feet away from him was Sabretooth's partner, the pretty blonde woman who went by the name Birdy.

    Senoh was keeping an eye on a much smaller screen on a panel in front of him before bringing it to Apocalypse's attention. He was able to see everything the Monitor Cyborg had recorded while Spider-Man and Gouki fought. Even though the Cyborg was far away, it zoomed in really close to the action. The last thing Senoh was able to see was the cyborg turning and heading off into a different direction, and after that the transmission ended. Naturally he assumed that either Gouki, Spider-Man or someone else destroyed the robot. It was then that he quickly compiled a few clips from the fight that would repeat themselves in a loop and put them on the large screen.

    "Apocalypse sama, I think you will find this to be very interesting. One of our Monitor Cyborgs succeeded in locating Spider-Man. He is fighting Gouki too which is quite unexpected," informed Doctor Senoh. "So that's where bug brain was hidin'! Wonder why we couldn't find him 'til now," Birdy pondered.

    "Fascinating," commented Apocalypse with an evil grin. "Ozymandias!"

    Upon his command, Ozymandias' face appeared in the upper right corner of the screen. "Yes Master," he spoke. "It is time to proceed with operation Shuma-Gorath." "Your wish is my command, my lord." With that, his image vanished.

    "Doctor Senoh, teleport the Horseman of Death to New York City and have him capture Gouki." "Yes Apocalypse sama. And what of Spider-Man?" "At this stage of the game we already have enough superheroes here for me to draw energy from. It is still imperative that we capture the almighty Hulk. Spider-Man however, will perish along with the Morlocks who live in the sewers and are too weak to stand with Apocalypse. Gouki on the other hand, The Apocalypse has special plans for my old friend. HA HA HA HA HA!"

    Birdy kept her mouth shut even though she had a worried expression on her face. She knew that the destruction of New York City was at hand. Still there was nothing she could do about it for the time being.

    Back in New York, Spider-Man shot a line of webbing at Gouki with his right hand. Gouki dodged it with his Ashura Warp and got right in Spidey's face. The hero reacted quicker than Gouki expected and with his free hand he nabbed him with a Fierce Punch, a wild haymaker to his face that sent the spiky haired foe flying back! After a speedy Forward Dash our hero leaped in front of Gouki and with a Crouching Roundhouse spun both of his feet around to knock his opponent down. That was ineffective since after his feet left the ground, Gouken's murderer placed a hand on the floor to cartwheel back to his standing position. From here he struck Spider-Man with his mighty downward Karate chop, his Zugai Hasetsu! This blow hit the same shoulder Gouki kicked earlier on. Clutching his shoulder, the famous superhero Backward Dashed away leaping back.

    Jumping in his direction, "HMM," Gouki said while firing off his Aerial Fireball, the Zankuu Hadouken! Spider-Man dodged the projectile with a backflip. Coming down from his jump, the Japanese Fighter was ready to pounce on the American hero. But before he could touch the ground he was caught with Spider-Man's Aerial Launcher, his standing Roundhouse Kick! A two legged somersault kick to Gouki's chest sent him 20 feet into the air!

    With a Super Jump Spidey was right before his aerial adversary. Next he struck him with a downward punch to his temple, rammed both feet into his stomach, shot a webline and swung from it while burying both feet into his chest and saying "WEB SWING!" Yes, the rapid succession of blows was Spider-Man's mighty Aerial Rave Finisher!

    Unfortunately for him, Gouki wasn't finished. Not by a long shot. He rose up from the floor and caught the web swinging wonder with his Gou Shoryuken! "SHOU," he yelled with his body twisting in the air while his mighty uppercut lead. This was the move in its truest form and not the weaker Dragon Punch he used on Norimaro earlier. Henceforth Spider-Man's body was covered with white hot flames! Peter Parker let out a gut wrenching scream as he felt the flames were attacking every fiber of his body, right down to his very soul!

    Gouki didn't let his opponent's body touch the ground just yet. With his Tatsumaki Zankuu Kyaku, his foot lit up with white electricity and this spinning hurricane kick seemingly electrocuted Spider-Man! Fire, followed by electricity raging through his body while the the spinning spider was kicked five times, anyone who saw the impact would not be surprised if this was Spider-Man's last stand. Such was the power of the Ansatsuken Warrior's Ki.

    Fret not, he wasn't down for the count! "SPIDER-STING," he yelled and almost on cue the electricity vanished from his body. His own uppercut, the Spider-Sting is similar to a Shoryuken only his body doesn't rotate in the air. He struck Gouki in his jaw at full power dislocating it! With his face looking like a broken wooden dummy since the bottom half his jaw loose, he went up in the sky about thirty five feet and landed flat on his face! Cracking the tough cement ground like someone dropped a piano on the floor it looked like he was down for the count! Even so, Gouki's last two attacks against Spider-Man left him a bit weary, so he too fell to the ground.

    Doing his best to stand up, the superhero rose up to one knee. When he looked up he saw Gouki already on his feet! Did Spider-Man have anything in his arsenal that could stop the mighty Martial Artist?

    Red energy flowed around the large mountain of a man who adjusted his jaw back into place with one hand, his Ki healing any broken bones when needed. He truly surpassed all human limitations and was as close to a god as a human could attain merely through vigorous training!

    There was a small trickle of blood that ran down the left corner of his mouth. Gouki wiped it away and looked at his fingers now with red spots on them. Surprisingly, it was very rare for Gouki to see his own blood nowadays since there were very few Martial Artists out there who could make him bleed.

    Next he did the last thing Spider-Man or anyone else expected him to do. He laughed.

    "Heh heh heh, HA HA HA HA HA HA! First Wolverine, and now Spider-Man! To fight such worthy opponents in such a short time span is truly, amazing! No, spectacular!" Still holding out his blood drenched hand before him, he gazed at Spidey with a devilish grin. The red aura around his body seemed to go crazy, radiating all over the place and making it look like Gouki had set himself on fire! Nothing made Gouki more content then to fight against strong adversaries. He truly was content!

    Almost as if their roles were reversed with Gouki smiling and Spider-Man being serious, he rose up from the knee he was standing on and spoke.

    "Gouki. I need you to listen to me for a second."

    After a brief pause, he continued. "There was a man named Sergei Kravenoff. He took on the name Kraven The Hunter. He spent years fighting me, in a vain attempt to prove he was stronger. Just like you're doing. It became his obsession. In our last confrontation he poisoned me, had me buried alive for two weeks while he impersonated me as Spider-Man. In Kraven's sick mind he felt he finally defeated me. So having nothing else to live for, he committed suicide."

    Gouki's grin fell and his red aura died down. He put his fists to his sides and took on his usual angered look. In part because he could understand the intensity of Spider-Man's words. But at the same time he was a bit insulted by the comparison.

    In his mind Gouki already felt that no one could truly best him in battle. Not only would Gouki never commit suicide, he felt that thanks to his godlike abilities he was practically immortal and was not expecting death anytime soon.

    "I have a beautiful wife waiting for me at home. I can't put her through something like that again. Swear to me, that no matter what the outcome of this battle, no matter who is the victor, that we will never fight again."

    Contemplating his words before responding, he agreed.

    "Very well. I give you my word as a warrior. But it matters not. Your life will come to an end today. Your wife will grieve once again, but that too shall pass."

    Standing on his tiptoes with one leg and raising the knee of his other leg, the Master of the Fist Posed as if he was about to perform another Ashura Warp. He was prepared to strike Spidey with is strongest move, his Raging Demon AKA the Shun Goku Satsu.

    Spider-Man thought to himself, "This battle, its taking its toll on me. I'm gonna try to wrap things up with my Crawler Assault." He went back to his Fighting Stance.

    The two were ready to perform their incredibly strong Super Arts. There was an awkward silence as the two faced each other. Both of them knew that this final attack would decide the winner of the fight.

    "MY SPIDER-SENSE! IT'S GOING CRAZY! LIKE A TEN ALARM FIRE!"

    Holding his head in agony, his sixth sense started to go nuts! Was his sense warning him about the Shun Goku Satsu?

    No! All of the sudden the night sky turned green! It seemed like the city was teleported to a different dimension! Spider-Man looked off into the distance and saw a giant purple tentacled eyeball floating in the sky! Peter estimated that the being was about the size of a baseball stadium! "WHAT THE SEGA GENESIS," was all he could say.

    Remaining ever still in his Ashura Warp position, Gouki spoke. "Spider-Man! What is the delay? Let us continue this fight!" "Pal, I strongly advise that you turn around and look up! Trust me, it's not a trick for me to kick you in the... beads when you're not looking..." "HMPH! I can sense his Ki. It is only Shuma-Gorath. I have defeated him in the past and can do so again! Now, FEEL THE WRATH OF MY SHUN GOKU SATSU!"

    And so he began gliding to the hero with his Raging Demon! Spidey, now aware of a new threat lost all interest in finishing this fight. He emptied two of his web cartridges, firing massive sprays of webs at Gouki from his webshooters! Normally Gouki could phase through many things, but this massive dose of webbing was just too much! He wound up covered in a large cocoon of webs, similar to what happens when contenders are struck with Spider-Man's Web-Ball attack. Only this housing of webs was a lot bigger! Inside what looked like a big beehive of webs, Gouki remained in place!

    Spidey ran off filling his Web-Shooters with fresh cartridges. "You're... Son Goku WHAT? You can lend me your Dragon Ball Z Fansubs later! I've got a city to save!" Rising high off the ground, he started to web swing his way to Shuma-Gorath.

    With his amazing red aura, Gouki destroyed all of the webs that covered his entire body! "COWARD! LET US FINISH THIS!"

    To his shock, a Zankuu Hadouken came at Gouki's feet and it looked exactly like his own attack! Gouki Ashura Warped to dodge the attack and wound up in the same area the dumpster was located earlier.

    Standing before him he saw a man dressed in a pale green cloak that was covered with purple hieroglyphics. It was the Horseman of Death. The Horseman raised a fist near his head, put one to his side and raised a knee. Gouki could tell right away that the Horseman was about to attack Gouki with another one of his moves, his Shun Goku Satsu! Gouki assumed the same pose, grinned and said "VERY WELL!"

    The back alley lit up and several blows were heard. With two Shun Goku Satsu attacks performed against one another, was it possible that either one of them would survive the deadly attack?


    *******

    Radioactive Bytes: Gouki saying "Amazing! No, spectacular!" is me having fun with the two different Spider-Man comic book titles. 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and 'The Spectacular Spider-Man' ha ha! Spectacular is no longer running, but it is the name of the current Spider-Man cartoon. ^_^

    All of the Kraven stuff Spider-Man is talking about is from Kraven's Last Hunt. There's so many parallels to Kraven and Gouki, I felt it at least had to have some kind of mention if Gouki fought Spider-Man. Aside from Kraven dressing like a lion and Gouki looking like one, both are out to fight strong opponents. Kraven's Last Hunt is one of my favorite Spider-Man stories of all time. Since it happened right after Spider-Man's marriage, by my estimation it would've happened only a few years or so before this fight. Kraven has a bunch of kids running around taking up his mantle, but this story is happening way before any of them show up.

    Can Spider-Man survive a Shun Goku Satsu? Well I don't answer the question in the story. My answer... it depends. Spider-Man always has something on his mind, I doubt there is any way he could clear his mind the way Wolverine did in the last fic to survive the attack. On the other hand, according to the story "The Other," Spider-Man is allowed one death. After which a giant beast will rise from his flesh, devour who is standing before him and then hatch himself to become a new version of Spider-Man. Hey don't look at me, I didn't write that story ROFL! What does that mean for his 'soul'? The heck should I know but according to all kinds of fiction, when you don't actually die your soul goes nowhere so... That's the only way I can picture Spider-Man surviving the attack. The character he devoured, Morlun was incredibly strong so Gouki might not fare as well against it, hard to say. Well yeah you would have to speed up the demon rising out of his flesh aspect so he could win the fight... It did not happen instantaneously. There's no way I can put that in the actual story since people who hated 'The Other' would come to my house and beat me up. :P 'The Other' was supposed to be a 2 year arc written by JMS AKA Joseph Michael Straczynski in Amazing Spider-Man, but Marvel didn't want the story taking that long in the main book. So they spread the story to 2 other writers and made it run through all of Spider-Man's books. Suffice it to say the story suffered for it. Still it's nice that the story gave us fan fic writers a potential "Get out of death free" card for Spidey so long as we write a story that takes place before 'The Other,' too bad none of us can use it since it is an unpopular story... OHS WELL... :P
