Old Wounds Never Heal
left Nova Corps for a while to take care of some personal business in Washington
DC. While at the local cemetery, he notices a burial taking place
and recognizes Sonique standing there watching from a distance. He
approaches her and begins conversation, she quickly re-acts and they begin
talking. After telling Drax nothing she got into her car and headed
back to her hotel room. Drax of course followed Sonique back to learn
what has her so jumpy. There he discovered newspaper articles about
recent murders in Washington DC within the past week. Drax again
tried to show himself and talk to Sonique, she finally agreed to tell him,
but she would prefer to talk to him in a safer place. They went to
one of Drax's old safe houses and she told what was going on. Many
years ago she used to rob ancient temples of their treasure with her old
pupil Hemorrhage. One of the temples had a warning on it that if
opened it would release a spirit of evil. Reluctantly they opened
it, took the jewels and continued on their way. A few weeks later
Hemorrhage began calling himself Brimstone and using his powers over blood
to hurt and crippled people. Sonique was able to stop him by getting
him to drink from the Holy Grail. Trapped there for all these years,
he was finally freed when Kosh trashed Sonique's collection and freed the
creature. Sonique was able to track him down to Washington DC where
she was trying to re-capture him. Drax agreed to help Sonique find
Brimstone, they both flew off on patrol. Soon enough Drax found a
murder at the Lincoln memorial, there was a dead woman and inscribed in
blood was the saying, "Give us what we want and we'll go away." Drax
soon enough saw the killer trying to take another victim, he was able to
stop Brimstone and tried to keep him busy by talking. Soon enough
Brimstone told Drax to have Sonique meet him here tomorrow and to bring
the Grail. Brimstone then leapt away into the night. Drax and
Sonique met again and Drax told her what happened, she contacted Shift
to bring the Grail to Washington to make the exchange with Brimstone.
That night, Sonique planted a decoy Grail and her and Drax went back to
meet with Brimstone. Soon enough he appeared and demanded the Grail,
not falling for the decoy he began attacking Sonique. Drax quickly
fought back, and using his light sabers, destroyed Brimstone. Sonique
compensated Drax before returning to Boston, and thanked him for saving
team is contacted by a woman named Carmen Garcia who asks them to go and
save her employer from the island of Ibiza. Evidently her employer
has been framed by someone and is being hunted because she has something
in her possession that they want. The team takes the mission and
head to the island of Ibiza where they find Foxfire disguised and hiding.
Not revealing much to the team, the try and leave the island. The
Nova Corps jet is destroyed and they are attacked by a bunch of droids.
Angel took Foxfire and flew back to Chicago at hyper speed. The rest
of the team chartered a jet and made it back. When they reached Chicago
they noticed that the same droids that had attacked them had taken over
the roof of the Nova Corps building. Tempest took all of them out
with a tornado. They then met Foxfire at one of her safehouses, but
was attacked by an assassin and more droids. Angel flew Foxfire to
safety, while the rest of the team took out the droids and met them later.
Eventually Foxfire confessed that the person she was fleeing from was Professor
Corn. She told them that she had worked with him in the past and
developed a chip for a giant robot of mass destruction and was keeping
it from him. The team then came across Fabin and were able to talk
him into helping them take out the robot. Fabin, not being quick
witted, agreed and sabotaged the robot and thus thwarted Professor Corn's
plans again. When the team returned to Nova Corps they noticed how
emotional Angel had become over Linx's death as she blasted Charlene with
an energy bolt. They were able to save Charlene, but Angel has sense
then become moody, and even went to Drax for help.
returning from the last mission, life for Nova Corps goes back to a slow
crawl. Angel also seems to have acquired a new boyfriend that has
been keeping her out all night. Soon however Drax discovers that
there is a crime spree happening in Chicago. Authorities are baffled
as the gang rates go up, and a new gang emerges wearing purple head bands.
Drax calls DK back and has him do some investigating. The soon learn
that it is a nova behind the gang activity, a nova named Morella.
Drax follows a few of the gang members back to their hideout and sees this
nova. She tells her gang that they have joined forces with a crime
organization called The Black Shadow. She also told the gang that
to celebrate their new partnership to go out into the city and pillage
it. Drax contacted the team about this, and then tried to follow
Morella as she left, but she had disappeared. Angel arrived on the
scene and tried to talk the crowd out of it, but it had no effect.
Tempest then showed up and created a huge thunderstorm and stopped the
crowd from going out into it. Angel and Venom then returned to Nova
Corps where DK was, when they were suddenly attacked by Morella.
Angel flew up and fought with her until Morella disappeared into a warp.
Tempest and Drax returned and there was no sign of Morella and Angel seemed
to be just fine. They returned to Nova Corps and most of the team
went to sleep. During the night Drax heard Angel ask for help telepathically.
He instantly went to her room where he saw Morella standing there.
She dropped the illusion and it was Angel. She then identified herself
as Brimstone, and told Drax to get the Holy Grail from Sonique. Angel
then took to flight and phased through the wall at hyper speed to return
when Drax had acquired the Grail for Brimstone.
is immediately contacted Venom telepathically and told her that Drax had
attacked her and that is why she had left. Drax then told Venom and
Tempest that Angel was really possessed and that Tempest should remove
her from the I-Spy program. While on route to Nova Corps DK was contacted
by his mentor and asked to go to Romania immediately. Charlie also
received a phone call from the head office and was instructed to go and
recruit a new nova in the Bahamas. Venom showed Drax a statue that
Angel had bought. Tempest did some research on it and discovered
that it was a Mayan statue. Drax then left to go and find Sonique
as she was the only one who could help him now. Sonique had the Holy
Grail and when Drax mentioned the Mayan temple, Sonique remembered that
she had raided the Mayan Temple of Death. Her and the Soni quickly
went to the temple with the rubies that she had taken from it. Drax
took the Holy Grail and returned to Chicago. DK arrived in Romania
and discovered that it was in fact a trick. He contacted Drax, Drax
told him that Brimstone was a Mayan spirit and that there was a temple
in Mexico that he had been released from. DK immediately left for
Mexico. Meanwhile in Chicago, Tempest was kidnapped from the computer
lab. Later Angel learned that Sonique was in Mexico, she asked her
new friend the Shadow Master to take care of it. He and some troops
went to Mexico and took the Soni hostage. When DK arrived he was
greeted by Charlie who caught up with him in Mexico after finding out the
nova in the Bahamas was a hoax. DK and Charlie went to the temple
and found it taken over by men in black uniforms. DK took them out
and found an ancient writing that the Soni had been translating.
He took pictures of it and him and Charlie went to civilization to find
someone that could translate it. Angel told Drax that he had violated
the deal and that he would pay. Angel then released Tempest on the
city of Chicago as Zeus. Zeus immediately released four hurricanes
that almost completely destroyed the city of Chicago. Later Drax
was able to use the GPS system in Angel's eufiber and find her. He
was then able to knock Tempest out and take him back to Nova Corps.
Venom then examined and treated him for his wounds, and found something
interesting out about Tempest. When he regained consciousness he
was still Zeus and tried to leave, but they sedated Tempest and kept him
there for treatment. Finally another exchange was made between Angel
and Drax for the Holy Grail. They were to exchange Soni for the Grail.
Drax was given the team and Angel was given the Holy Grail, she made sure
that no one would ever get it by placing it in the center of the Earth.
Later Drax realized that Sonique was in fact just an illusion. Charlie
and DK found out that Brimstone was in fact the Mayan spirit of death named
Cizin. They also found out that if the rubies where placed back in
the temple, Cizin would be banished as soon as the light of dawn hit them.
Drax then contacted Angel stating that he was the one who had the rubies
and that he would exchange them for Sonique. Angel went to Shadow
Master to make sure he still had Sonique. He agreed and they met
with Drax for the exchange. However when Angel and Drax met, the
Shadow Master thanked Cizin for helping him take Chicago and told him it
was time for him to leave this world. He also thanked Drax for delivering
the daughter of Dred to him. As the sun rose Cizin was banished back
to the underworld. Drax took Angel back to Venom where she was treated
and was helped. Tempest was still tied to a bed and believing he
was Zeus. Charlie and DK returned to Nova Corps, and repairs began
to the Nova Corps building again.
mission starts out with Angel telepathically returning Tempest back to
normal. Angel then recieves a vision of Lord Dred standing in a dark
alley. He smiled at her and had two big dogs with leashes in his
hands, one grey and one black. The leash of the black dog broke and
he ran to Angel, the grey dog was then drug into the darkness with Lord
Dred. Shortly there after Drax is contacted by Lord Dred and warned
of an upcoming war. DK announces to Drax and Tempest that he must
leave, and disappears back onto the streets. Shortly there after
Drax takes to the streets in an attempt to locate members of the Shadow
to try and track down Sonique. He is finally able to find one, but
as he does he is frozen in place and approached by a group of novas.
One of the novas who is black and burned all over speaks to Drax and demands
that he tell them where his former master is, or else. Drax not knowing
the answer and not wanting to tell, says nothing. He is then mentally
attacked and when he breaks free they are gone. Meanwhile back at
Nova Corps Charlie tells Angel that the main stock holder of Nova Corps
has backed out. This caused all the other smaller stock holders to
back out as well and they are not all unemployed. Drax returns and
hears of this news, he the decided since they have three days before they
are officially belly up to continue with the mission at hand. Angel
then makes the suggestion that they all buy the company, but Charlie informs
them that they do not have enough to do it.
Changing of the Guard
receives another vision, this time she sees a hand come out of the sky
and crush the Nova Corps building. Then a local business man walking
along the street walks up to the rubble and opens his briefcase, a new
and better Nova Corps building emerges from the briefcase. Later
that day a business man named Douglas Owen comes to Nova Corps on behalf
of Dr. Woodrow Wilson, owner of Wilson International a research and development
company. He buys Nova Corps and begins going over the details of the company
with Charlie and the team for Dr. Wilson. It turns out that this
is the same Dr. Wilson that Venom was trying to contact about cloning research.
Mr. Owen meets with every team member individually and re-negotiates their
contracts. Meanwhile, Drax ditches the meetings early and heads out
to find more clues. Sure enough he gets Angel to help him and they
locate Shift at the Chicago Field Museum. Drax heads there and finds
him, takes him outside to find out what Shift knows about Sonique.
Not too long later Drax is attacked once again by the giant metal harvester
known as Scrap Iron. Angel immediately heads there to help Drax,
but they are unable to defeat Scrap Iron. Scrap Iron makes a comment
about the Pantheon and how they would not approve of some the actions taken
by the Harvesters. Shortly there after a young nova comes out of
the museum and asks them to be quiet as they are disturbing the exhibits.
He then freezes Drax in time and talks to Angel as they dodge Scrap Iron.
He says his name is Timothy Edmund Isforever. Angel convinces him
that they are the good guys, so he releases Drax and freezes Scrap Iron
in time. Drax and Angel then take Tim back to Nova Corps where he
is recruited and put on the team.
that the best way to flush out the Harvesters is to address the Pantheon
that they are afraid of. Tempest is able to locate it somewhere in
the artic. The team boards a sub and heads there to address the Pantheon.
When the finally get there they are guided into an underground chamber.
There are several novas there, most of them in long black robes.
One of them comes forward wearing a metal helmet and face plate in a black
robe. He greets Drax and asks to speak to him alone while the rest
of the team can await them in his chambers. He announces himself
as Hiroshima, consulate of the Helgen and speaker for them on the Terragen
Pantheon. Hiroshima and Drax talk about the situation of the war
that is going on. Hiroshima says that by taking Sonique hostage the
Harvesters have broken one of the rules of war. Hiroshima arranges
it so that Drax can speak directly to the Pantheon on this subject.
Drax talks to the Pantheon only to see them start to argue amoungst themselves.
Hiroshima's assistant, Lotus, leads the team back to the sub and says that
they have done great work in bringing the Harvesters out into the open
and to be careful because the Harvesters will attack them for the outrage
against them. The team then returns to Nova Corps and awaits the
team tries to relax and get back to normal, but before long Angel is attacked
by a mental blast from no where. Soon there after Tempest is attacked
while he is at Cindy's by a scorpian woman. When the team returns
to Chicago, Drax is once again approached by Cinder about taking them out
and settling this once and for all. They decide that they will meet
at midnight in the park and the two teams will fight this out. When
the team gets there later that night it is quiet and no one is there.
Soon enough a fire blast comes out of the shadows at Drax, but he is able
to dodge it. Tempest takes to flight and takes cover in the clouds
above. A scorpian woman attacks Venom on the roof, she take some
minor damage before Drax goes up there and takes her out and throws her
into the air. Then suddenly a bolt of blue energy shoots from by
the Nova Corps buiding and disintegrates Scorpia. The team notices
Douglas Owen standing there with a lazer gun. Then the giant metal
man known as Scrap Iron appears in the park. Drax immediately attacks
him and throws him into the lake near by, but not before he absorbs Drax's
light saber.. Another fire blast comes from the shadows as Drax follows
it and disappears. The metal man appears from the lake and returns
to the park. Tim is mentally bashed and is knocked out. Angel
tries to blast Scrap Iron, but with no luck. Owen shoots him with
his gun and puts a giant whole in him. Venom then makes a tree grow
through it to stop him from moving. Owen then shoots Scrap Iron in
the head and destroys him. Soon after Angel notices Tempest fall
from the sky and bleeding from his nose and ears. She is able to
catch him and get him to the ground. Owen tells Angel to inform Drax
that he took his advice and went along on one of their missions.
Owen then walks away, but just before he leaves he shoots a lady in the
bushes and informs Angel that he found their other missing villain.
Angel thanks Owen as he walks down the street and is gone.
finds himself in a dark underground cavern with a shocked looking Cinder
in front of him. Drax immediately takes out Cinder and begins to
look around the cavern. Soon as he digs around the darkness of the
cavern he hears the voice of the Shadow Master. Shadow Master begins
to taunt Drax. He informs Drax that it was he that was hired to take
out his family, and that the head of his dead wife is still displayed on
the mantle of General Corsair and that they still spit at it. This
enrages Drax and he continues to dig through the dark tunnel. He
eventually gets to a solid stone wall where he can hear a muffled vibrating
scream from the other side. He breaks through the wall to find Sonique
hanging from the ceiling in a giant energy wall. Drax tries to break
through the energy wall but is unsuccessful. Sonique asks him to
get her out, just as Shadow Master reminds Drax that this will be yet another
woman that he will lose. Just then, they all notice a giant boom
and vibration from the ground above. Shadow Master not happy leaves.
Soon enough Drax finds DK dropping through a hole in the ceiling, followed
by Electrode. Drax tells them the situation and Electrode absorbs
the energy field so that Drax and rescue Sonique. They then leave
as DK tells Drax that the Helgen are wiping out this Harvester Base.
Drax leaves with Sonique and soon discovers that they are in Australia.
Sonique charters them a flight back to Boston, when they get there Drax
heads back to Chicago on his own.
Professional Super Heroes I
returns to Nova Corps only to be sent out on a mission of high emergency.
Two novas from the team called N-Vector, Flamer and Gummy Bear, have begun
to demolish the city of St. Louis. The city has hired Nova Corps
to stop them from saving the city. Once the team gets to St. Louis
they are able to find these two novas in the midst of the evacuation of
the city. They ask them why they are destroying the city and they
say they are trying to stop a midget with a big ray gun that is working
for Kathie Lee Gifford. Angel creates an illusion of the guy so that
Flamer and Gummy Bear believe they have killed him. They then leave
the city, but just as Nova Corps is about to leave on the plane Gummy Bear
returns with a sleeping frozen Flamer. He tells them that there was
a flash of light and Flamer was just frozen and standing there. Angel
enters his mind to see that he is dreaming of him and another man.
Venom is able to wake him up, but much to their surprise Flamer doesn't
want to be awake, he wants to go back with Ricardo. Flamer and Gummy
Bear head off in search of Ricardo while Nova Corps returns to Chicago.
