Updates!

Happy Friday Players and Novas!  I hope everything is going well! Today’s post will be a short update on what’s going on with myself and the blog! It’s the Burger of The Day post, if you will lol.

Vacation: Firstly, I’m on vacation lol. I’m currently typing to your from my friends living room (because she’s still asleep) in Illinois. Now I’m a Floridian so being in Illinois when it’s pretty cold to me is crazy. But hey, I promised her that I would visit to go to Six Flags and Fright Night with her (doing that tomorrow). I’m a little skeptical because I am used to the high end Halloween Horror Nights and Howl O Scream events, but I’m sure I’ll have fun either way (If I don’t freeze to death lol).

Patreon: I know I mentioned starting a Patreon account in the Bloggers Thoughts: From Players to Professionals post last week. Well that dream is a reality now. The Patreon Page is live and you can help support the blog if you wanted by clicking here. Also, if you have any ideas for the page I’m happy to hear them!

Upgrades: Does the site look different to you? We received our first sponsored post a few days ago. With the earnings, I upgraded the blog to Premium and now we have access to better themes. It’s a work in progress but I’m upgrading the look and feel of the site (it looks wayyyy better on mobile now). How does the new theme look?

NaNoWriMo – The outline is complete for my story that I’m going to be working on during National November Writer’s Month (NaNoWriMo) and I’m debating on posting snippets of the story here during the month of November. Let me know if that would be a good idea. I’m writing the story of a journal from medievel times, following the life of a royal court and a Princess. The journal’s going to be written from different perspectives as it winds up in a few different character’s possession.

Upcoming Posts: This coming week we will have posts coming out that I have been working hard on.

Memoirs of A Villain: Louise Belcher!

Listen, I’m not a villain but I do have quite an impressive history of mischief! louise3  Before you pass any judgement, “Just remember that we are going to come out of this deal stinking rich!” The memoir deal that is!

Have you seen all of the crap that’s being marketed as “New York Times Bestsellers?” Most of the books on that list are self help mambo jumbo that even I could write up! So I will!

I’m a simple Belcher. My family owns a restaurant and are always coming across trouble or precarious situations. Who would think that this amount of excitement would be available at a burger joint? I’m an entrepreneur, I try and get in on the ground floor of every get rich quick scheme and after reading the memoirs of 2 famous villains; The Joker and Sesshomaru, I know it’s my turn to shine!

Let’s start from the beginning. Tina was crying over the latest fight between our father and her crush’s father, Jimmy Pesto! Jimmy runs the Italian place directly across the street form us and he has been terrorizing my father for as long as I can remember. Our place may not be the fanciest, but the food outweighs Pesto’s by a ton. This time, he went too far and banned Jimmy Jr, Ollie and Andy from talking to use Belchers. Tina was devastated and I’d had enough. It’s time to protect the family.

I’ve devised a few plans to stick it to Jimmy one and for all.

Plan #1 – I feed my brother Gene buckets of chili and send him over into Jimmy Pesto’s restroom. Unknowingly, I’ve placed cherry bombs in Gene’s back pocket. He’s sure to drop a few in the toilet as he relieves himself and then KABOOM! Gene cause a minor explosion while he is pooping and the smell causes everyone to evacuate the restaurant!

Nope, can’t do that Louise. Gene will be left behind and Jimmy will somehow blame dad.

Plan #2 – I get Andy and Ollie to let me into their father’s kitchen by telling them that we’re going to play a game of hide n seek.  louise2  I volunteer to be “IT” and let the twins go off and hide away from the crime scene. Then I find Jimmy’s special marinara sauce and stir in a very special ingredient that Zeke secured for me. He beat up the science club and made them concoct a tasteless liquid that causes diarrhea. One taste of this stuff and the entire restaurant will be sick! Those who didn’t have the marinara will be sick watching others throw up and poop their pants. It’s full proof.

“Hey Louise, Rudy is here” – Tina interrupts bursting into my room.

“Hi Louise!” Rudy waves with his free arm.

“Ughhh I’m trying to make us millions here guys. What is it?” I answer slamming my pen on the desk.

“Well I wanted to show you my new Roach Farm.” Rudy says. He walks over to the desk and places a container down.

“I want to see, I want to see” Gene screams running into the room.

We all gather around as Rudy takes off the sheet covering his new friends. In aw we all marvel at the roaches walking around.

“Aw, Rudy they look sad.” Tina says

“Yea, can’t you let them loose so that they can breathe?” Gene agrees.

I smile am evil grin as the belcher children and Rudy continue to play with the roaches. Clasping my hands I let out a maniacal laugh. “This is perfect! Bwahahahaha, bwahahaha.” louise1

Tina Joins in “Aha, aha hahaha” followed by Rudy “Hahahaha.”

“I want to feel included” Gene yells “ahahahahhaha.”

The next day…

We’re sitting in the restaurant and Tina is telling us for the Gazillioneth  time that she wants to run away if she can’t be with Jimmy Jr. Dad is trying to calm her down and mom is singing her a lullaby to ease her mind. Just then we hear screams from across the street. The family runs to window to see all of Jimmy Pesto’s customers running into the streets with little critters following them.

“Omg Lyn, do you see this?” Dad says.

“Let me see, let me see. Oh My Gosh, Bobby!” Mom replies.

“What’s going on dad?” Gene and Tina ask.

“It’s the best day of our lives kids. Jimmy Pesto’s has been infested with roaches and now everyone will know!” Dad yells.

It’s the first time I think I’ve ever seen my dad cry. Tears of joy roll down his face as the Health Department and the News crews pulled up in front of Jimmy’s. Everyone rushes outside to watch the descent of Father’s enemy, except me. I stand with my arms crossed and the smile of satisfaction on my face.

See, I’m not a villain, I am a simple daughter trying to save her family from ruin. I am Louise Belcher!

 

Memoirs of a Villain: The Joker

uproxx

The glass seemed fuller when I ordered my drink. Oh well, it wouldn’t be the first time that I was slighted. Look at me, I was on top of the world a week ago, money in my pocket, love in the air (literally, I blew up 2 lovebirds) and not a doubt in my mind that I would be crowned the best Matchmaker in the land.  Alas, the life of a villain isn’t all glitz and glam, we villains have it tougher than the rest. This memoir is to all aspiring villains out there, it’s a message to not give up when the world is against you and it’s a call to arms to once and for all carve your place in history and TAKE BACK WHAT’S YOURS! 

I received a call about finding a match for a poor, useless soul in a competition. Harley was away on some kind of wellness retreat, go figure, so I had some free time ahead and thought, why not? What better way could I find to spend my time than to help someone ruin their life forever, oh and I had a brand new suit that I was dyingggg to wear!

During my intial research, which consisted of looking at a picture and performing a quick Google search, hey I’m a busy clown, I found out that this Malboro fellow was stacked! He’d made so much money off of the Final Fantasy Franchise that it was ridiculous, and he is a villain! A man or plant after my own heart.  So I thought, why not use his fortunes to better the world for other villains, I was a philantrophist, a villain’s rights activist, a pillar of the community for crime and self gain. It was my responsibility to bring him into the fold.

Poison Ivy was the best option. She loves little green men, am I right? She agreed to marry him so that we can have access to his money, but she refused to dispose of him so that we can get filthy rich! All I did was make a litle call to my notary and had him adjust the marriage certificate that both Ivy and Malboro were to sign before the wedding. I added in a little clause of life insurance saying that should something happen to both the bride and the groom, that the sole beneficiary of all of their property would be… well ME!

As the two lovebirds said their vows and engage in a life of marriage, I remembered how marriage can put stress on a relationship. I remembered how my parents were after a few years, after the novelty of love wore off. I didn’t want my dear friend Ivy or new comrade in vile villainy to go through the hardships of a relationship crumbling. I wanted them to be happy, with smiles on their faces for the rest of their lives… So I blew them up! Not out of greed or the convenient life insurance policy that I was about to cash in, but for the love. For endless love! They died together on the happiest day of their lives, wth smiles from ear to ear. Read their love story by clicking here!

But no one understood. I was being called a selfish heathen. Even the millions of dollars that I inherited didn’t make me feel better. But, I was able to buy some new gadgets! There’s only one thing that makes me feel better… total chaos!

“Pour me another round barkeep! Hello?” Grabbing for the bottle of Jack left on the counter. “It’s hard to find quality service these days.” I gulp down afew swigs straight from the bottle. Sirens are screeching outside, the loud crash of chaos turns my frown into the devious smile that i’ve missed these past hours. “They’re here!”  I wipe my mouth and pour the rest of the drink on the bar, passing the unconscious bartendar.

Reaching into my pocket I bring out the small, lighter, with the features of it’s master. I slide my thumb over the pertruding white nose of the clown in disgust and flick open the top of the clown’s head. “Hmm I’ve got to talk to the patent office, this doesn’t look that much like me.” Fire!

“It’s showtime!” I light the end of my cigar that I have taken off of the bartender. “Can’t let this go to waste.” 3 Puffs and the clown lighter goes flying through the air as I walk onto the streets of rage where my minions have gathered. I rally my protege’s in the most invigorating speech since brave heart! “We will take back what’s ours! We Will rule as the princes of the world. Today, is the day of the Clown and this time, we’re not joking around!” Another rush of tears, this is the 2nd happiest day of my life! Now the real games can begin!

Thank you for reading the first installment of Memoirs of a Villain. This series of  fun posts will serve as a Memoir or Journal entry from some of my favorite villains. A few months ago I purchased a cool Journal that had the Joker on it and the first few pages of the journal had a journal entry form the Joker in it. I thought this was really cool and I came up with the idea to do journal entries from famous villains for the blog.  I started with my favorite the Joker and used the friendly Blogger Blitz competition as his motive. Tune in next week to see who’s taking their turn!

IBlogger Blitz Round 1: Matchmaker!

Happy Monday Novas! Thank you for reading my entry into round 1 of the Blogger Blitz competition, hosted by Adventure Rules! Round 1 will be between myself and Teri Mae and we are fighting to see which of our characters will be the best at the Matchmaker Competition!

Rules: The rules of the Blogger Blitz is simple, we were randomly drawn out of a bowl to find out our opponents and challenge. The challengers submitted their character of choice before hand and this character will be used each round that you advance. Once you receive your topic and opponent, you will write a post 500 words or less explaining why your character would win over the other opponent. Then neutral judges will read each post and vote on a winner!

 

“So I’m supposed to be providing a match for whatever this malboro person is, let’s take a look at his appear… AHHHHH! I drop the envelope with the picture of the malboro as the stench fills the air.

“Who in the world can I persuade to date this odious plant!” My devious smile curled all the way up to my eyes as I pick up the phone. “This has got to be my best idea yet! 

Hello? Ivy? Ivy doll, I’ve got a job for you…  Bwahahahaha hahahahah HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA.”

“Now listen, all you have to do is put on that charm of yours and spray some feremones and he’ll be eating out of your hands.”

Ivy’s twisted glance to me indicates that she knows I’m not planning a normal matchmaking.  “Uhhuh and then what, Joker? I know you’re not in this to make someone else happy. What do you get out of this arrangement?”

Dang, it. She’s on to me. ” HA, you’ve got me doll. I’ve heard that the Malboro has an estate bigger than our friendly, neighborhood Bat! I want to have an unlimited resource of money.”

“I could use some cash. Fine, but he’s not to be hurt Joker, I mean it!”

She looks like she’s serious. No way I can persuade her to torch that plant after the ceremony. “Alright, if you insist.” The devious smile never left my face as I told her the plans.

Look at this putrid plant sitting on top of the alter, does he have no respect. I clear my throat. “Mr. Malboro sir, I’m sure you’re going to love the mate that I have found for you.” Oh my gosh that stench. I turn away to breath into a paper bag and quickly call Poison Ivy to me.

“Ah, this is Poi… um Ivy. This is Ivy!”

I can’t believe she’s actually going to marry that thing. Well, pretty soon I will be rolling in the dough. My watch is ticking too slow, come on, come on….

“You may now kiss the bride!”

“Yes! Woohooo… Congrats Ivy!” Silence. Oh yea, this is an improptu wedding and not many people are here.

“Why are you screaming?” Ivy looks like she suspects.

“I’m just happy that everyone has found love and that I’ve won a bet. Now you crazy kids have fun on your honeymoon!” I push them out of the door and hand them the keys to a special present.

“What’s this?”

“You’re wedding present, doll. You’re very own IVYMOBILE! I had it custom made to help you with photosynthesis or whatever it is that you plant folk do.”

Shes not laughing. I shrug my shoulder and shoo the lovebirds along.

They drive off in a puff of flowers and nectar, I had that personally installed. I can feel emotion and joy on this wedding day. I can feel the tears building up.

A big explosion in the direction of Ivy and Malboro.

“This is the happiest day of my life! I’m rich!” The tears are like waterfalls now.

 

Ultimate TKO Tuesday: Poison Ivy Vs Swamp Thing!

Happy Tuesday Novas! After a long hiatus with the TKO battle series, I’m brining it back for Tuesdays! The inaugural Tuesday match will begin with Poison Ivy Vs Swamp thing! For anyone new to this series, in TKO battle matches I pair 2 characters (most of the time from different realms or universes) and create a fan fiction battle how I would imagine it. If you like this series, feel free to request characters that you want to see battle it out!

Swamp Thing is tired of the DC Universe! He’s heard about the Dark Knight trying to “Clean” up Gotham. 598dec4f164b69e847b5e9c804c311e4  While his intentions are noble, now he has to worry about a certain “Penguin” and Ice Man murking up his swamp waters. The new “tenants” arrived about a month ago with their schemes and even dared to freeze some of the foliage in their area to create a decadent ice facility. “I will not let anymore of this eco system die off.” swamp thing broods. “Something has to be done and the Dark Knight must be held responsible.”

“Ya know, Gotham’s been a little quiet lately, huh?” Harley says. She walks around the house running her finger tips across the counter.  harley  “Yea… a little too quiet if you ask me.” Ivy responds. She walks through the darkness as if she was modeling for Home & Garden. “Where is Batman anyway?” Ivy asks. Harley screams “Doll, Look!” Ivy runs over to the TV. The Breaking News… Batman has been abducted by a strange green monster. “Well we’ve lucked out.” Harley says laying across the sofa chair with her head over the arm rest. Ivy’s gaze is hardened at the screen. “Guess we don’t have to worry about the Bat anymore. He’s gone and got himself kidnapped.” Harley continues. The room is eerily quiet. “Doll?” Harley asks. She falls onto the floor and looks around. “Doll? Ivy? … Now where did she go?” A trail of flower petals leads out the mansion.

“You have destroyed my home and now I will destroy you!” Swamp Thing says to an unconscious Batman. As he goes to turn on the poisonous gas, a poisoned rose needle pins his hand to the wall. “Tisk, Tisk babe… don’t you know not to touch what doesn’t belong to you?” Ivy says as she walks into the room. Her long, flowing red locks cascade down her back. “Ivy…” Swamp Thing acknowledges. “What are you doing here?” he says. “You have something of mines and I’ve come to collect it.” Ivy’s gaze catches the Bat’s limp body. “I trust, he isn’t dead.” she snarks. Ivy uses the vines in Swamp Thing’s home to start unlocking the container Batman is held in. “He has upset the balance of my swamp! Banishing these villains here to destroy our eco system. You of all people should understand why I have to do what I have to do.” Swamp Thing says. Ivy smirks and nods her head. “Oh I understand and if it was anyone else I’d leave you be…. but as I said you have something that belongs to me and I’ve come to collect him.” Ivy snaps her fingers and the vines wrap up Swamp Thing. “This’ll only take a sec.” she says winking and walking past him. “You can’t have him!”

Swamp thing enrages and breaks through the constricted vines. He launches a devastating punch at Ivy sending her flying across the room.

Ivy rubs her head. “Ouch, is this the fight you really want?” she says brushing herself off. “Ye…” before Swamp Thing can finish his sentence another vine is smacking him in the face. Swamp Thing turns on the poisonous gas. “Ummm 2 things… I’m immune and you’re crazy.” Ivy laughs. Swamp Thing smiles at the plant Goddess. “The Gas isn’t for you.” Ivy’s eyes are ghost as she realizes Thing’s intention. She jumps to grab Batman but is quickly tossed to the side of the room by Swamp Thing. “Stop!” she screams. “hahahaha” a hoggish voice laughs through the green gas filling up the room. “What is this?” Ivy asks, staring at Swamp Thing. She can tell by the befuddled look that it wasn’t his call. “Allow me to introduce myself… I’m Hoggish Greedly and I have a proposition for you.”   1761523-hoggish01  The silhouette of a giant pig emerges with The Penguin and Mr. Freeze behind him.

“What’s going on?” Thing says. “Don’t you get it?” Ivy responds rising to her feet with tears in her eyes. “This was a set up from the beginning.” she says. Swamp Thing nods. “Since you 2 have embraced your dark side, some of us for a second tie huh Ivy? I think that we should become partners.” Greedly continues. “I refuse.” Swamp Thing says and turns off the gas. “Me as well.” Ivy chimes in. “Oh well it wasn’t a request!” Greedly continues and signals to Mr. Freeze. “No!” Ivy screams and uses her vines to push Swamp Thing out of the way of Mr. Freezes’ Ice Beam. She succeeds but is soon frozen herself. The lack on sunlight has weakened her. “Let her go.” Swamp Thing yells throwing toxic punches at his enemies. To no avail he is frozen after the brawl. The startled face of Poison Ivy and the defeated look of Swamp Thing is loaded unto a flatbed and carried out of the room. “I have big plans for you 2, big plans.” Greedly says. As they leave the room an unconscious Batman balls up his fist.

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Absorbtion Assailants (Rogue Vs Android 18).

Happy Thursday Gamers, Geeks and Friends! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s Thursday TKO battle will be between Rogue from X-Men and Android 18 from Dragonball Z. Every Thursday we pit 2 characters from different games, movies, etc against each other to find out who would be the ultimate winner!  Check out last time’s TKO battle between Scorpion and Master Shredder here! Without further adieu, let’s get into Rogue Versus Android 18!

Rogue is investigating the disappearance of her mutant students from Xavier’s School For Special School. 3 Of them have gone missing in the last week, no trace, no note, no nothing. Rogue recalls overhearing Amy, one of her students talking about an amusement park that caters to mutants. “Sounds like a good place to start.” Rogue says. She tracks down the address of this new park and with a confused look she says “The Bermuda Triangle.”  rogue

Rogue arrives to the Bermuda Triangle location and spots an island in the distance. She can smell popcorn, cotton candy and hot dogs on the horizon, “I must be close.” She says. Finally Rogue can see the outline of a roller coaster and ferris wheel in the distance. She flies over and lands at the gates of the park.”Cellebration Park, huh?” She walks in. The park looks operational as the lights and music are all playing. The ground is littered with trash from the concession stands. No one is around so Rogue does the only logical action, she starts calling out the names of her former students “No Answer.” Rogue walks past the turnstiles and into the first attraction that she can see, a fun house. Before she can get too far, she she’s an image in one of the mirrors, it’s girl. “Hey have you seen…” Before she could finish a pink ball of energy comes crashing through the mirrors and blows Rogue out of the fun house.

android 18 1

Rogue peers up over the girl floating over her. Her hair is golden like the sun and her skin is kissed by the milk of cows, she has blue eyes and she’s wearing a weird type of clothing. her pants are black and she has a white long sleeved shirt underneath a black vest. “Who are you?” Rogue asks as she stands to wipe the debris from her brow. “You can call me 18 and you can call me master.” The woman says as she lets out a maniacal laugh. A smirk of confidence flashes across Android 18’s face. Rogue lunges at the assailant throwing punches her way. “What have you done with my students?” Rogue yells and punches 18 in the stomach. 18 Pushes off of Rogue and catches her breath. “I see you’re not going to be an easy opponent, but when I absorb your powers, I will be unstoppable.” 18 says. She blasts another ball of energy at Rogue who dodges. Rogue grabs the right arm of 18 and can feel some of 18’s energy transfer over to her. “What are you doing? Get off of me!” 18 yells and kicks the leg of Rogue. “What’s wrong? Think you’re the only one that can siphon energy?” Rogue says.

Android 18 grabs Rogue’s hand and turns to blast her. Rogue flies back into a cart of candy apples. She gets  up and punches 18 in the face. The next thing she sees is a horror in itself. Android 18’s face has morphed and now she has 2 green things appears on top of her head. “What the heck are you?” Rogue screams. “There’s no need in hiding this now” 18’s voice got deeper.  cell2 Rogue can see the change in 18’s body to reveal the true culprit. “They call me Cell.” He says and flies in close to hit Rogue in the face. Cell grabs Rogue and tosses her into the bumper cars. “Hahaha, I thought you would be worth my time.” Cell says.   cell He hits Rogue with a blast of energy that sends her into a cart of games. Rogue is bruised and battered and now she knows what has happened to her students. “Rogue get up, get up!” a familiar voice says. Rogue is barely able to turn and see her student Amy trapped in a cage of wires. “Amy, what has happened to you?” Rogue says. “We were taken and now our abilities are being drained from us.” Amy replies. Rogue can see that Amy looks bad as if she had been torn apart. “I’ll get you out of here” Rogue says. She tries to stand but is unable to make it to her feet. “You’re too late.” Amy says with tears rolling down here face. Amy falls over but before the end she touches Rogue’s hand. “I’d rather it be you…” are the final words Rogue hears from Amy.

Cell is floating in the air laughing. “This world of theirs is nothing compared to what I have endured.” Cell says. Rogue blasts Cell out of the sky with a ball of energy. “You monster!” she screams. The enraged Rogue battles Cell, punching him, kicking him and blasting him to the ground . Renders Cell immobile thanks to her student Amy’s powers. “This is for my students and all of the mutants that you have hurt!” Rogue yells. She blasts Cell one last time and watches as his body explodes. “This is for Amy.” Rogue says and she falls to the floor crying. imageedit_1_5678568027

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Nasty Ninjas Scorpion Vs Master Shredder!

Happy Thursday all! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s Ultimate TKO Thursday battle where we pit 2 opponents from different series, comics, video games, etc against each other in an all out battle to see who will reign supreme. This week I’ve taken the request of Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek’s from last week’s battle (Final Freeze: Subzero vs Mr. Freeze) request to see Scorpion in a TKO Battle! Scorpion is an experienced marital artist and a pennacle of the Mortal Kombat franchise. After mulling over the options, I have come to the conclusion that a great match up for him will be none other than Master Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Let’s jump into a quick synopsis of their backgrounds and get into the battle!

Master Shredder or Oroku Saki is one of the main villains in TMNT. He started as a trusted friend of Master Splinter and delve into his own practice of starting a ninja army know as the Foot Clan. Some of Shredders defining features are his size, speed, strength, intelligence and mastery of Ninjitsu.

Scorpion or Hanzo Hasashi is a ninja warrior who appears in the Mortal Kombat series. Most notably known for his Kunai Spear that shoots from his hands, Scorpion is also a master in Ninjitsu and fights using fire and flames. He is a resurrected ninja that battles his demons which each fight. He is quick, agile and deadly when he becomes enraged.

“When are you finally going to rid Earth of those pesky Turtles so that I can rule?” krang Krang says. The clank of Shredder’s boots against the marbled floor of the Technodrome is worse than the sound of nails against a chalkboard. “It’s hard to think that you can rule anything with the amount of times that I’ve had to save you personally, dear friend.” Shredder responds. He stops a mere 10 feet away from the brain known as Krang. Shredder stands firm with his piercing gaze directed towards the alien. “How dare you speak to me with such insolence, you should know your place.” Krang responds. Shredder’s gaze turns deadly, his fist are now tightened into a ball with the veins sprouting out from both sides. “I’ve had enough…” he starts as he leaps into the air head on towards his once ally, right fist extended with maximum strength towards his target. The last thing Shredder sees is the smirk on Krangs face as he steps aside and opens a dimensional portal. Before long Shredder awakens in a dark, mysterious land. He dusts himself off and rises to find another ninja a few feet away dressed in scorpion3 yellow and black. Before he could ask where he was the assailant strikes an impressive martial arts pose, “Uhhuh” Shredder says. “I guess this is the dimension that Krang was mentioning last week, this is OutWorld.”

Scorpion’s stance looks very familiar to Shredder, it’s very similar to his own fighting style of Ninjitsu, yet it is tweaked somehow. “I’ll have you know that I am a master of Ninjitsu.” Shredder says as he copies the stance. He notices that Scorpion’s eyes are bright white. The sky rings with the drums of the thunder cascading around the 2 ninjas, it’s almost as if Raiden had played the symphony of the skies for this occasion. Scorpion sizes up his opponent, who is standing with blades lined along his forearms and top of his helmet. Scorpion finally breaks his stance and walks to the left of his opponent in a circular motion. Shredder takes off his purple cape to reveal the tight ninja suit that he is wearing. It is flexible enough to allow Shredder to use his full range of motion while fighting. Shredder counters by walking to the right of Scorpion, both men checking to see who will make the first move. After about 2 and a half rotations Scorpion stops and bows to his opponent bring his hands back to the Shaolin Fist stance. Shredder bows back and launches into battle with quick strikes of his fist.

Scorpion matches Shredder’s aggressive strikes and tries to counter with his own barrage of punches. Both opponents are true masters of martial arts and therefore are able to quickly dodge and counter attack each other instantly. Finally a blow hits it’s target! Shredder use the blades on his forearm to pierce the cloth of Scorpion’s Shirt. Scorpion seemingly increasing in rage shoves back Shredder and drops to the ground to initiate a quick leg sweep. The taller Shredder falls to to the floor. Shredder stands up and releases his Steel Claws . Shredder makes his way closer to Scorpion but after a few steps he finds himself dodging a speared rope coming from Scorpion’s palm. The next round of the spear has Shredder swiping at the Spear with his Steel Claws.

Scorpion throws fireballs at is opponent barely scorching the wrist of Shredder. As Shredder leaps into the air to attack Scorpion counters with a backflip kick straight into the jaw of Shredder. As Shredder stumbles he falls to one knee and and lunges with his claws at Scorpion piercing his chest. The 2 masters fall back into the quick firing hand to hand combat. Scorpion spins and misses his punch but lands a kick to the shin. Shredder grabs Scorpions right leg and pulls him to the ground, following up with quick punches to his face. Scorpion spits a hot, burning acid on Master Shredder to make him flinch and fall over. Scorpion kick flips up and starts stomping scorp-kick on Shredder before hitting 3 backflips away from his opponent. Shredder flips up to his feet and wipes the blood from his jaw. “You are a worthy opponent, but I’m afraid that this duel has come to an end.” His Steel Claws are ready to end the fight. He takes a step towards Scorpion and feels a tingle in his right arm. The Kunai Spear from Scorpion’s palm had caught him. Shredder yells in fury, “Get Over Here!!!!” Scorpion says and pulls Shredder close for the fatality.

The blood starts to pour out of his body and light up the floor of Outworld. Yet, it looks too orange to be blood. It’s not, it’s the lava flowing out of Scorpions body. When he pulled Shredder towards him with the Kunai, he never took into account that Shredder’s left Steel Claw was left uninhibited. Shredder had used his body as a diversion, he was caught by the spear to throw his opponent off guard. The Steel Claw slashed open the belly of the beast and sent him spiraling to the ground. Shredder, bruised and bloodied, bows to his opponent. “Now to take care of that Krang!” He says before taking 3 steps and also tumbling to the ground.

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Final Freeze!

Happy Thursday Gamers, Geeks & Friends! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s multi-verse TKO battle where we pit 2 characters from different games, universes, series etc against each other in an all out battle for supremacy! This week we will feature Mr. Freeze from Batman and Subzero from Mortal Kombat. Let’s get ready to rumbleeeeeeee.

In other versions of Ultimate TKO Thursday I would go over stats or abilities. Since I am pitting a comic/movie character against a video game/movie character I will instead provide a brief synopsis of their history/abilities then jump into the battle: Ready?

Mr. Freeze is a DC Villain from the Batman series that was a formidable opponent for the caped crusader. He started as Dr. Victor Fries a scientist employed at Wayne Enterprises (I feel like a lot of villains worked for Wayne Enterprises lol) who (according to your source material) pretty much failed in his mission to save his wife Nora. As a frenzied, mess he vowed to take revenge on those that he believes caused his freak accident and killed his wife. Because of the accidents with his freeze experiments, Dr. Fries has to wear a suit that keeps his body temperature at the sub zero level. This suit consequently also bestows upon Fries added strength and durability.

Subzero is one of the cornerstones of the Mortal Kombat franchise. According to lore the original Subzero named Bi Han met his untimely end by another cornerstone; Scorpion. After his demised the Sub Zero we’ve seen in past titles has been his brother Kuai Liang. Both brothers are a race from Outworld known as Cryomancers and they are able to manipulate ice. Subzero is also trained in the martial arts and can fuse his ice moves with his lightning quick strikes for a deadly combination.

The Battle:

Freeze points his new weapon at the cold assassin. ” I hear that you’re some sort of ice wizard.” Freeze laughs. Sub zero moves his head from left to right and Freeze can hear the crack of the ninjas neck. Subzero’s glare becomes constant as he builds up the energy in his palms. Freeze can feel the temperature change and the see the balls of ice form in Subzero’s hands. sub-1 Freeze starts firing his twin guns at Subzero launching frozen ice chunks and a freeze beam at his opponent. Subzero counters with dodging the ice chunks and launching his own barrage of icicles at the freeze beam detouring its accuracy. “Ah, you’re a clever one aren’t you, no matter.” Freeze says as he starts firing again. This time the ice chunks hit its target. Freeze watches as the particles of a once frozen Subzero decorate the the sky and fall to the ground. “That was anti climatic.” He responds. Freeze uses his immense strength to through a boulder on what is left of Subzero.

Subzero appears behind Freeze using Tombstone Teleport sub-3, that allows him to freeze himself and fall back unto the floor, and freezes the floor below Freeze’s foot using the ground ice attack. The ice clone had distracted his opponent and now he was sliding across the floor. Subzero starts attacking furiously throwing his ice clones, ice burst and hitting Freeze with a Frost Hammer. You would think that this ninja was a part of the NHL! “What is this?” Freeze says as he can start to feel his durability fading, the hits of ice are starting to hurt. “How is this happening?” Freeze says. He manages to maneuver himself onto his belly and starts firing the freeze beam again. imageedit_1_2868695002 Subzero is able to successful dodge all of Freeze’s follow up attacks. The ninja uses Frosty to completely freeze the Dr. in a block of ice. He doesn’t say a word, only drags the ice block to his cooler display case with the rest of his conquests. FATALITY!!!!! imageedit_3_9219357445

What did you think of the battle? Who would win in your version of the TKO Battle? Would you want to be Subzero’s trophy? Let’s talk TKO?

Ultimate TKO Thursday: Billionaire Battle!

Bruce Wayne knows every inch of his company Wayne Enterprises. He knows when the finance reports are released, when each of his employees are on vacation or in the break room and he even knows how to make sure that budget cuts will never lead to layoffs for his employees. Yes, Bruce is very intuitive and intelligent. But how could he have ever predicted what would happen next? Wayne Enterprises is a well oiled machine that makes millions upon millions each year. As Bruce exits the board room with a grimace look about his face. The poised businessman starts to feel a rage that he has only felt during his vigilante role as the Dark Knight. His alter ego protects the streets of Gotham from the vile, disgusting, nefarious characters that only seem to thrive in Gotham. How could he tell his board members that for the first time, Wayne Enterprises was in the red. They were no longer a top contender on the Forbes list of Fortune 500 companies, no they were hemorrhaging money due to a competitor who has taken over their must lucrative markets. Wayne Enterprises, according to 2017’s current quarter is playing second fiddle to Stark Enterprises!

The Background: Over the course of the last 3 years, Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark have alternated awards for the most successful company, Man of the Year and Community Service Project of the Month. bat “How can that arrogant jerk be nominated for anything?” Bruce says as he paces around his study. “This is unacceptable” Bruce says as he peers over his right shoulder into the cracked door of his room. Bruce sets his glass on the desk and walks toward the secret door.

Tony Stark wakes up to excellent news! “Finally Stark Enterprises is back on top where it belongs.” he says. The newspaper Tony is looking at is then folded and sat on the edge of his table. “J.A.R.V.I.S! Do you I have any new emails?” tony-stark-2p Tony asks. He takes a bite out of his toast and chugs the cup of orange juice. “You have 3 new email messages. Should I review them now?” J.A.R.V.I.S responds. “Who are they from?” Tony replies. “One message is from your Board of Directors congratulating you on this Quarters Results, the next is from AWI Cruise Lines, Subject: You are a Winner! and the last is from Wayne Enterprises Subject line: Invitation.” J.A.R.V.I.S lists. “Wayne Enterprises?” Tony says. “I wonder what this can be? J.A.R.V.I.S read the email from Wayne Enterprises.” Tony says. “You are cordially invited to a meeting of the minds. Tony Stark, we have rivaled each other for too long. Let’s have a formal meeting next week at 8pm in Gotham. Oh and bring your suit… Iron Man! Signed Bruce. I do believe that you have been challenged sir.” J.A.R.V.I.S. finishes. “I do believe you are right.” Tony says as he walks over towards his new suit. “I do believe it is.”

The Battle: Ironman man rest on top of Wayne Enterprises waiting for Batman to appear. “I mean if you’re going to invite someone to a duel, shouldn’t you be punctual?” he says as he looks through the skyline of Gotham City. Iron Man 2 movie image He can see the bat symbol illuminating the sky “Pfft, how tacky. Talk about an ego-maniac” stark says. “Look who’s talking”the deep, gloomy voice responds. Stark turns towards the sound and sees Batman walking out of the shadows. “Ah, there you are. So what is this about?” Stark asks. batman Batman tilts his head to side and opens his left palm. A Batring slides from under his suit and he responds “There’s only room for 1 vigilante and I have decided that you’re too arrogant to be him.” He tosses the Batring at Ironman who swiftly knocks it away with his arm. “Cute, but um with toys like that I think that I will take the number one spot. Plus this whole dreary thing is not working for me, could you smile every once in a while?” Stark notices the brooding Bat smirks and lunges at him.

The 2 begin to spar on the roof of Wayne Enterprises. Batman’s abilities in hand to hand combat are far superior to Ironman’s, however, J.A.R.V.I.S makes sure that Stark is staying afloat in this fight. “You’ve really been pumping the iron haven’t you?” Stark says. “You should really pay more attention to your opponent instead of your wise cracking mouth!” Wayne says. Before Stark could muster up another witty comeback Batman follows a 3 hit punch combo with a swift leg sweep bring the Iron hero down. Batman towers above him with an odd ball shaped item in his hand. “I can see that I have won, so you should find new distributors for Stark Enterprises.” he says. Stark shakes his head and Batman replies “Have it your way.” tossing the sparkled ball on top of Ironman. Ironman shakes on the ground as the electromagnetic pulse takes over.

“Now that suit is useless” Batman says and walks toward the edge of the roof. “You know, I had a feeling that you would do something like this?” Stark says in a rather chipper mood. Wayne quickly turns around to see that Ironman was no longer immobile. “That’s why I changed the suit. That EMP didn’t damage anything, you see I’m smarter than you.” Stark proceeds. He taps Batman on the shoulder “Checkmate!” The Bat’s eyes are now wider than the moon and index1 Ironman blasts him off of the roof. “You know he wasn’t a bad guy, moody yes, but not bad. J.A.R.V.I.S let’s go home.” Stark says. In a blink of an eye his thrusters are propelling him into the air and back towards Stark Enterprises.

Meanwhile Batman is hanging off the edge with his grappling hook. “We shall meet again Stark, we shall meet again!”

What did you think of the battle? Did you agree with the winner? Who wins in your mind out of Ironman and Batman? Let’s Talk TKO!

Ultimate Thursday TKO: Wicked Witches!

Happy Thursday All! It’s that time again for the match of the week on Ultimate Thursday TKO where I will pit 2 characters from unrelated games, movies, realms etc. against each other in a fan fiction battle to see who would take the crown as the champion of Ultimate TKO! This week I’m going to switch it up and pit 2 of the wickedest, most powerful witches in pop culture: Zelena the wicked witch of the west from Once Upon A Time and Bellatrix Voldemort’s right hand woman from Harry Potter!

Instead of listing their abilities (because they’re no video game characters) I will instead provide brief description of their history and magic. With that comparison out the way, we can sit back and enjoy the match. We will start with someone that everyone should know, the Wicked With of the West, Zelena.

So remember that good ole tale of the Wizard of Oz with Dorothy and her friends battling the Wicked witch of the West? Well Zelena is that witch, only she is the adaptation of the character portrayed in the Once Upon A Time television show. Zelena’s powers in the show were one of the most powerful in the land.

  • Conjuration
  • Healing Spells
  • Heart-ripping
  • Magical Immobilization
  • Pyrokinesis
  • Shapeshifting
  • Telekinesis
  • Teleportation

Now let’s take a look at the infamous Bellatrix’s abilities.

  • Dark arts Mastery
  • Non Verbal Magic
  • Expert Duelist
  • Occlumency/ Legilimency
  • Unbreakable Vow Bonder

Battle: After Zelena returns to the zelena_312 land of Oz with the magic mirror that she has always desired, she begins to ask it questions. Just like the Evil Queen she wants to know who her competition is, yet she’s not asking about beauty or being fair. No Zelena has no interests in those type of answers, Zelena is convinced that she is the strongest and most talented with to have ever lived. “Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the most powerful witch of them all>” Zelena says. The mirror trembles and slowly starts to display an image, Zelena yells at the top of her lungs clasping the mirror with all of her might. The acute, piercing screech is enough to crack the glass of the mirror. “We will see about that?” she says as she prepares to Teleport. Zelena waves her wand above her head, while clinching her teeth in anger she says the incantation “Intera Telep Su Owkson London.” In a puff of green smoke she disappears.

Bellatrix bella wakes up unaware of her surroundings. She twists her wrist and gasps at the sight of her fully formed body. She can sense that someone else is with her so she let’s out a maniacal laugh “I guess I should say thank you, but you have no idea what you have just resurrected” she says. Zelena walks in front of her opponent, “No need to worry, you’ll be gone again soon enough!” she smirks. Zelena stares in envy of Bellatrix “pfft I can hardly believe that you are the are powerful witch, you look kind of mad.” Zelena says. Bellatrix rises with wand in hand, never breaking the gaze of her opponent. Zelena is waiting for a reply, yet there’s not one on the way. Bellatrix’s right arm shakes and Zelena looks into her eyes feeling something that she never has before… Fear.  The feral appearance of Bellatrix as she cracks her neck resembling a wild beast has the hairs on Zelena’s head standing on in. “And you smell like a muggle, this will indeed be fun.” Bellatrix says. Before Zelena knows it burst of magical energy is thrusting her towards a tree.

Zelena concentrates and pivots forward shooting fire towards her ghastly opponent. She follows the fire up with a spell to immobilize Bellatrix’s magical ability. REBECCA MADER With her competition restrained she gets closer “that was too easy” she laughs. Bellatrix laughs with her but quickly that laugh turns into another intense stare. Creeped out Zelena knows its time to end this, she lights a fire under Bellatrix and walks away. When she turns to have one last glance, she falls to the floor. Bellatrix had escaped! The last thing Zelena sees is the crashing of a wave unto the ground where she fell. It’s all too cliche’ yet the only words she could mutter were “I’m melting, I’m melting.” Bellatrix, soaring above her bella1 directs her wand towards the defeated witch and ignites a spell to combust Zelena. “The least I could do for the woman who resurrected me would be to put her out of her misery. Now where’s that Potter! We have unfinished business.”
