Previously on Red Revenge…
"All squad members रिपोर्ट to the briefing room now!" Nightwing ordered. The teens exchanged looks before following Nightwing at a jogging pace to the briefing room.
"No time for a full de-brief. Everyone suit up and meet on the bio-ship in five. We've got a rescue to preform."
"On who?" Cassie asked.
"Red Revenge." Nightwing said.
"Before I answer anything, I want to know what Ra's meant द्वारा 'family ties'."
Before anyone could respond, the door hissed open Rose tossed something into the room, grinning.
"GRENADE!" Deathstroke yelled, leaping to the side as the rest of the Light hid behind the table. The grenades went off followed द्वारा smoke bombs. The doors opened and guards ran in. Ravager grabbed one guard and shot another with the former's gun. She threw daggers at the guards emerging from the other doorway and they dropped.
"You'll regret this girl!" Deathstroke yelled, standing up.
"Doubt it." Ravager said, grinning. She pulled out twin katana swords and leaped at Holly. The blonde pulled out a blade of her own and blocked the attack. The blade was only half-length and होल्ली, होली knew she couldn't hold Ravager back for long.
"Stupid girl." Deathstroke said. "Did आप honestly think that आप could pull this off द्वारा yourself?"
"But she's not alone." A new, deeper voice said. Deathstroke, Ra's, Holly, and the other members of the Light looked up.
"Impossible!" Ra's exclaimed.
Red Revenge stood in the doorway. He pulled out twin pistols and twirled them in his fingers for a मिनट before pointing them in the room. "So," he asked. "Who dies first?"
Dropping!" Nightwing yelled, opening a hatch and jumping. He grappled to the ground closely followed द्वारा Wonder-girl, Robin, Blue Beetle, and Static.
"Go! विभाजित करें, विभक्त करें into pairs and look for Revenge! Move!"
Revenge's hand emerged from behind his back. There was a detonation button in it. The members of the Light looked at their feet and bodies, but there were no detonation devices.
Revenge pressed the button.
"Self-Destruct Initiated. 10 मिनटों Remaining. Please evacuate the building."
10 मिनटों Ago…
Robin ran alongside Wondergirl. They rounded the corner and Robin's bo-staff hit a soldier in the stomach. Cassie's fist came in contact with another's face. The two barely had time to grin at each other before और guards rounded the corner. They were taken out before they had time to आग their weapons.
Cassie continued down the hallway and came to a hovering stop. There was a two-way split.
"Which way?" Cassie asked as Robin ran up.
Robin pulled up a holographic map and scanned the hallways. "This way!" he yelled, running down the left tunnel.
Beetle and Static flew down a hallway following a group of soldiers. They ran down a hallway.
"Close the blast doors! Close the blast doors!"
The doors slowly closed behind them, but Static and Beetle managed to squeeze through. The soldiers ran down a hallway and banged on a sealed door at the end of it.
"Open the doors! Open the doors!"
"Now, Blue." Static started, coming to a stop in mid-air. "Do we use static to open the door या do we blow it down?"
Beetle responded to Static's devious grin. "I think we should blow it down." A तोप formed on the teen's arm.
"Stop! Stop! Please!" the soldiers yelled.
Static and Blue laughed before knocking out the guards.
Nightwing ran along the hallway, looking for any sign of violence which would lead him to Revenge. Nothing.
"Where the hell are you?" he asked aloud.
"Freeze!" someone yelled.
Nightwing spun and threw projectiles at the soldiers. They all dropped to the floor.
"Self Destruct Initiated. 10 मिनटों Remaining. Please evacuate the building."
Alarms sounded throughout the base and the lights went off before red ones came on.
"Revenge, what the heck?" Nightwing asked, hiding his face in his hands.
Ravager grabbed her father's head and slammed her knee into his face. He yelled and stumbled back before falling down. Ra's Al Ghul and Black Manta leapt at the white-haired girl (Klarion had taken a portal out as soon as bombs had started going off).
Ravager grabbed two devices from her बेल्ट and placed them on Manta's हेलमेट when she flipped over him. The devices sent a current along the sea lord's suit that deactivated him, literally leaving him in a standstill.
Ra's turned to one of his former students and leapt, slicing through the air at the girl. Rose dodged it and returned with her own blows. Ra's, ever the expert combatant, dodged the attacks. Rose had learned one thing from her time with the Black Hero however. She pulled a grenade out of her utility बेल्ट and slammed it onto Ra's chest, letting it fall into his loose shirt.
Ra's growled and grabbed the grenade, tossing it behind Rose. He grabbed his sword again and swung at Rose. She leaped back to avoid being sliced. Ra's backed up himself.
"Wha—?" Rose looked at her feet. It was her own grenade. "SHIT!"
Rose tried to run, but she had pushed the button too long पूर्व and the grenade detonated before she was far enough away.
Revenge pushed the Brain off of him and threw down some grenades of his own before running and dragging the white-haired girl into the hallway. "Rose..?"
"Get—back in there." Rose gasped, grabbing Revenge's arm. "Don't—let this go to—waste."
Revenge nodded gravely and ran back into the room, swinging swords, bullets, and explosives wildly. The Light actually started clearing a path as Revenge's new found strength made him a mad-man heavily armed and not afraid to use any of it.
"Nightwing to all squad members! Get out NOW!"
"Roger!" Cassie yelled over her comm.
"Si! Si!" Beetle yelled.
The other members acknowledged. Nightwing ran around a corner and tripped, falling flat on his face. He looked back and saw a bloody Ravager laying on the floor, he went to make sure she was alright, but she merely pointed to a room and muttered "Revenge…"
Nightwing looked up and ran into the room, escrima sticks out. Revenge was bouncing all over the room, throwing daggers and shooting guns. Three members of the Light were down, but that still left Ra's Al Ghul, Vandall Savage, Lex Luthor (who was trying to get out), and Holly.
"Revenge!" Nightwing yelled.
Ra's turned and growled before leaping at the new hero.
"Go! Go! Go!" बैटमैन yelled. Team members ran onto either the bio-ship of the Batwing.
"Where's Nightwing?" Cassie demanded.
"Dunno, but there's only three मिनटों left before that place blows!" बैटमैन yelled.
"Two मिनटों until Self-Destruct. Please clear the blast radius."
Vandal growled and grabbed Revenge's leg, throwing him to the ground. He jumped on the boy and Revenge grunted as he felt बोन्स snap. Vandal picked up the boy and slammed him into the wall, keeping a tight hand on his throat.
Nightwing leapt over Ra's and landed a kick to Vandal's back, knocking the monster of a man off balance and freeing Revenge who dropped to the ground.
"Are आप okay?" Nightwing asked.
"Get—Ravager out." Revenge gasped, आग burning through his lungs as the cracked rib erupted in pain.
"Now!" Revenge said, grabbing Nightwing's कॉलर and hauling himself up.
Nightwing nodded and ran out of the room, grabbing Ravager as he did, throwing the girl over his shoulder.
"That's right! Run! Run!" Vandal yelled, laughing evilly.
"You've got bigger problems." Revenge growled.
Vandal grinned and turned around. "The base is about to explode, you've got cracked ribs, and there are still enough of us left here to take on half of the Justice League." Vandal said, opening his arms wide. Revenge glanced at the remaining members of the Light. Luthor had left the building which meant Revenge was stuck in here with Vandal, Holly, and Ra's.
Revenge laughed. "You have one मिनट to get out of the building." He said. "My mission is done. None of आप can get out in time."
The three villains looked at each other. होल्ली, होली leapt at Revenge, pinning him to a wall. "Go! I'll take Revenge!"
The two remaining super-villains did not hesitate to run towards the door.
होल्ली, होली grabbed Sam and pinned him against the दीवार द्वारा the throat. She leaned close and whispered.
"Sam, please don't make me do this."
Sam didn't have a clue what she was talking about.
"Please don't make me be the bad guy anymore."
Revenge slowly nodded. होल्ली, होली grinned, tears flowing from her eyes as she embraced Revenge.
"Let's go kick some super-villain ass." Sam said, grinning.
होल्ली, होली nodded and turned. The super-villains were almost at the door. The blonde-haired girl tossed a throwing तारा, स्टार at the control panel and it sealed the door. Savage and Al Ghul turned, each greeted with a boot to the face. Revenge and पन्ना grinned, ran out the door tossing explosives inward, and sealed it shut from the outside.
"Self Destruct in 5-4-3-2-1."
"What in the-?"
Revenge and पन्ना ran out of the base and joined बैटमैन at the bio-ship. "Everyone out?" he asked. The Dark Knight nodded. Revenge grinned and pulled out a detonation button. "Good-bye Light."
"Revenge! Wait!" बैटमैन yelled, leaping at the Black Hero. It was too late. Revenge's thumb came down on the button. It took a second, but the base exploded outward, a large ball of flame and heat spreading towards the heroes. It dissipated before it could get there.
June 18, 01:01 EST
The rest of the Team walked solemnly past the Dark Knight, each holding some wound या each other.
Revenge returned the Dark Knight's glare. "Where's Ravager? Rose?"
बैटमैन hesitated. "She's in the med-bay. As soon as she's better, she's being taken to Belle Reeve."
"No." Revenge said. "I have a promise to keep."
"I don't give a damn about your promises!" बैटमैन yelled. "I want a straight answer!"
"Don't आप dig at my promises when आप didn't even keep the one आप made to Jason."
बैटमैन growled and slammed the Black Hero into the wall. He punched him repeatedly. Revenge put a fist of his own in the Dark Knight's stomach and launched himself at Batman. The two traded blows until Revenge flew into the wall.
"Enough!" Superboy yelled, stepping in-between the two.
"Tell that to him." Revenge growled.
