Supremacy (1 of 1) Nick Fury: Maria: Nick Fury: Maria: Nick Fury: Barlovski: Nick Fury: Barlovski: Nick Fury: Maria: Nick Fury: Arron: Nick Fury: Arron: Maria: Arron: Nick Fury: Arron: Nick: Arron: Nick: Arron: Scene 1 Triskelion, August 1st, 23:17 EDT Give it to me straight Maria The hackers managed to download a huge portion of classified S.H.I.E.L.D. data before the firewall was put on again. Including the identities of several of our undercover agents. Which agents, Maria, we need to get them out of there All of our female agents, including… The Black Widow, she’s been undercover in one of the Russian crime families, (he opens coms) Natasha, get out of there I’m afraid your spy isn’t here, Fury What have you done to her? Unfortunately, nothing, before I could even capture her myself she was kidnapped by a bitch in red. She’s your problem now Fury. Maria, I want you to uncover whatever leads you can find Sir, all we got is that she wears red, it’s not much of a lead I don’t care, find out who has her? Don’t bother (he throws down a file) How the hell did you get in here? The same way you did Fury, through the secret entrance. (He turns to Maria) you might wanna read that file. (Maria reads the file) Victoria Sinclair, formerly known as Roulette, speciality of setting illegal cage matches pitching heroes against each other. Jade, Katana, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, The Wasp, Miss Marvel, Miss Martian, Wonder Girl and Black Canary have been reported missing by their respective teams, hardly a co-incidence. Find this Roulette, Maria, and since you’re such an expert, how about helping me find out who hacked S.H.I.E.L.D. systems There aren’t that many people capable of hacking your systems Fury, I could count them on one hand, best guess Noah Cuttler, the Calculator. Probably at the services of this Roulette The Calculator’s an expert at covering his tracks. My partner’s trying to track him down, I’ll let you know how she gets on. (Nick puts his head in his hands) You know I’ve been thinking about retirement a lot lately, it’s always been one thing after another, but it’s getting worse Find a way to alert your compromised agents, Nick, I’ll be back for my favour another time. (He is teleported away) Scene 2 Unknown, 01:00 EDT Roulette: Calculator: Roulette: Calculator: Roulette: Calculator: Roulette: Calculator: (Over microphone) transmitting live on channel 64, we have the Supremacy Tournament of Heroes. Can Black Canary and Black Widow face off against 9 of the most powerful heroes in the world? And even if they survive all that, only one of them is making it out alive, place your bets ladies and gentlemen, this is a fight not to be missed, after these commercials. (She turns to a computer) is everything in place You doubt my word, Miss Sinclair? Last time I tried this scheme I had the Flash and Green Lantern onto me, I do not want that to happen again This time you’re broadcasting on a pirate network, there’s no way they can trace you. And the mind control gear will work, as well as the inhibitors preventing more troublesome powers You think of everything As long as I receive my cut. I want 35% What, you’re not getting a cent over 20% Be dismissive of me at your peril, without me, your plan falls apart. Speaking of which, 3 minutes till airtime Miss Sinclair, I’d hurry with your considerations (Reluctant) 35% then I knew you’d be sensible about this. Roulette: Calculator: ------------3 minutes later, the arena Black Canary and Black Widow rise into the arena, they both awaken Black Widow: (Russian accent) what happened? Where am I? Black Canary: Not sure, last thing I remember is (she sees Roulette in the stands) oh no Roulette: Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time for our first match. Introducing, the legendary ladies of League and the Avengers: The Black Widow and the Black Canary (the audience cheers) they’ll be fighting against 4, that’s right 4 opponents (they rise into the arena). The little lady with the nasty sting, the Wasp, the Thanagar thrasher, Hawkgirl, the deadly Katana and the lady lantern Jade. Place your bets, and let the match begin! (Hawkgirl immediately attacks Black Canary, Black Canary kicks her in the face but is tackled by Katana, the Wasp attacks Black Widow, Black Widow dodges but soon a bunch of lantern chains entrap her, Black Canary sees this and lets out her sonic scream, this unbalances Jade and breaks the chains, dazed, she is kicked unconscious by Black Widow, Katana swipes her sword at Black Canary, Black Canary is tripped up by Hawkgirl, Katana is about to deliver the blow when she is hit by a stinger fired by Black Widow, knocking her out. The Wasp continues her offensive against Black Widow, as Black Canary recovers, and Hawkgirl tries to attack her, Black Canary and Black Widow are backed together) Black Widow: Switch? Black Canary: Switch (they turn around, Black Canary knocks the wasp out with her sonic scream, and Black Widow fires a stinger that reflects off the arena barriers and hits Katana, dazing her, Black Canary screams and knocks her to the ground, where the Black Widow knocks her out, the crowd cheers, as Black Canary and Black Widow) Black Widow: What is all this in aide of? Black Canary: Making Roulette rich, whether we live or die Roulette: Wasn’t that incredible, the underdogs are victorious, and win themselves some new allies in their battle (she deactivates the mind control chips of the unconscious heroes) but can even they take on the powerhouses of the teams. (5 new heroes rise into the arena) The champion of the Amazons, Wonder Woman, and her equally strong sidekick Wonder Girl. The Martian Manhunter’s niece, Miss Martian, the Kree enhanced terror, Miss Marvel and the cousin of Superman herself, Supergirl. For the sake of this challenge, we have removed telepathic, telekinetic and flight capabilities of our champions, but even with that advantage, they are not to be underestimated. Place your bets ladies and gentlemen (the unconscious begin to recover) Hawkgirl: Can someone explain what’s happening? Black Canary: It’s Roulette Hawkgirl: Again? She just won’t give up. Great Roulette: Let the match begin (Wonder Woman and Wondergirl both throw their lassos, binding Jade, Black Canary screams at Miss Martian, but her ears absorb into her flesh and she cannot hear it, Hawkgirl tries to whack Supergirl, but it has little impact and soon she is blown backwards by Supergirl. Katana faces Miss Marvel, who soon shatters Katana’s sword, Wasp tries to back her up) Wasp: Sorry about this Carol, but (she stings Miss Marvel but Miss Marvel just absorbs the stings, and blasts back, Miss Martian stretches out her arms and grabs Black Canary, throwing her into the other side of the arena, Black Widow fires her stingers at Miss Martian, but they pass straight through her, Jade manages to stretch the lassos binding her and fires a series of blasts at Wonder Woman and Wondergirl, which they deflect using their bracelets, Supergirl then tackles her from the side, Jade creates a shield around herself which Supergirl pounds at, cracks soon begin to form) Black Canary recovers and screams at Miss Marvel, while it delays her, it does not stop her, but Hawkgirl hits her from behind, knocking her down, Katana, now without her sword attacks Miss Martian, backed up by the Wasp, but neither are able to get a hit on her, as Miss Martian uses her shape-shifting to avoid every move) -----------Roulette’s booth Roulette’s is looking through financial projections Roulette: I always said these brawls could make me a millionaire (she looks again) billionaire (the door is blown down and secret agents begin storming the office) how did you find us? (Maria Hill enters the room) Maria Hill: You compromised a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, you didn’t think we wouldn’t be able to track her in case that happens? Roulette: Maria Hill: Roulette: Maria Hill: Roulette: Maria Hill: But the Calculator? Surrender Unlikely. (She speaks into the microphone) protocol 12 (all the Superheroes are back under mind control, and jump toward the booth) Take out that system (they all begin shooting at the computers, destroying them all, and freeing everyone from mind control) it’s over Not yet (she easily takes down the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents one by one, until she gets to Maria, she aims a high kicks but Maria ducks, and dodges when Roulette slams her foot down, Maria fires but Roulette manages to avoid the blast and tries to kick Maria from the side, but Maria catches the kick and throws her back, Roulette gets up but Black Canary smashes through the window and uses her sonic scream to knock Roulette down, Black Canary arrives to fire a stinger to knock her out) Nice work, you two make quite a team (Black Canary and Black Widow smile) Scene 3 Unknown The Calculator contacts Vandal Savage Calculator: As you requested, I allowed S.H.I.E.L.D. access to just enough information to put Roulette back behind bars Vandal: Leaving you with all the profit from the events, let’s hope her imprisonment stays that way this time.
