Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

The group had clustered at the base of their Quinjet. Wolverine, Spider-Man, Black Widow were standing together, with Batman a bit to the side. Superman touched down next to them. “If you’re looking for the Infinity Stones, then we need to talk and it’s better we do it inside. There’s something I should show you.” He said. He turned when he saw another Quinjet in the distance coming towards them. “Friends of yours?” He asked.

“They should be.” Black Widow said, nodding.

“Captain America, Iron Man, and Black Panther were headed in this direction to search for another Infinity Stone, like we told you.” Wolverine said. “Didn't know you might have it, at the time. That could be them.”

Superman’s gaze shifted slightly, to look over at a tall mountain of ice. “No.” He said, shaking his head. “They’re on the top of the mountain over there, coming down towards us.” He pointed. He looked up at the Quinjet, as it neared them. “Whereas that vessel contains an Asgardian, a Human, and a Kree.” He said.

“A Kree?” Brady asked, curious. “What’s a Kree?”

It was Batman who responded. “Alien.” Batman said and looked over at Superman. “It could be a trap.”

The other man simply smiled. “I know you don't trust anything, but that doesn't mean everything is sleight of hand. Not everything is a trap.” Superman replied.

“Except for traps.” Batman and Wolverine said at the same time. Both men turned and looked at each other, and a silence descended over the gathering.

“Okay, I'll say it." Spider-Man said, a Waldo raised in the air in lieu of his hand. "This is awkward.” Spider-Man said.

The Quinjet descended near their own and landed. The boarding ramp extended and from it, Wonder Man, Mar’vyl, and Thor descended.

Thor's eyes lit up when he saw the group. “Praise Odin, tis a great thing for mine eyes to lay upon you all once more. I see you have gathered more comrades in arms. Good, we shall need them, especially after what we all came across on our quest for the Infinity Stone.” Thor said. He stepped up to Superman. “Man of Krypton, we have not broken bread since the battle with Derek Sheppard. It is good to see you in health.” He said.

“Odinson, it is good to see you as well.” Superman replied with a smile as the two clasped hands. “Derek Sheppard was a troubled man who needed help.” He said. “I did what I could, but we were all lucky that Mr. Miracle arrived.”

“Is this your leader?” Mar’vyl asked, indicating Superman. She was holding something in a box.

“No, not Superman. We don’t really have…It’s complicated.” Wonder Man replied with a shrug.

“I believe the leaders you’re referring to are over there.” Superman said.

The group turned to see Black Panther, Captain America, and Iron Man walking towards them.

Thor and Captain America clasped hands. “Thor, I hope your journey was successful.” Captain America said.

“Aye, it was, Son of Davis.” He said. “We were able to retrieve the stone, though it cost many lives, including that of Claire Huntley.” He pointed at Mar’vyl. “This Kree woman has it and she would have words with you and the iron one.”

Captain America looked at Mar’vyl. “Hello ma’am. My name is Benjamin Davis.”

“Are you the leader?” She asked.

“He’s not really the leader.” Burke said. “We’re kind of a collective. Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Like the Wu-Tang Clan.”

“They have a leader.” Spider-Man retorted. “RZA is the leader.” He said, and Burke rolled his eyes.

“You’re not helping.”

“I’m just saying.” Brady replied, the Waldos shrugging for him and the looked at Mar’vyl. “Cap’s the leader.” He said.

“Claire Huntley died entrusting this stone to me to bring to someone named Ben Grace.” She said.

Cap’s brow furrowed. “Ben Grace?” He asked. “I don’t know a Ben Grace. I know a Brian Grace, the director of Vanguard.” He said.

“Is that the man I should be speaking to, then? She was dying, she might have gotten mixed up.”

Cap’s eyes darkened. Claire was a loss. Everyone meant something and losing someone, anyone was a loss. “No, we work with Director Grace.” He said and she nodded.

She opened the box, and a blue light shone forth. “This is the Infinity Gem that was in Kree Space. We rescued it and brought it to you all.” She said and Cap nodded.

He turned to Superman. “I’m assuming there’s a reason why Brady’s scanners have brought us here.”

“There is a reason, indeed.” Superman said. “You should come with me, into the Fortress. There are some of you who are indisposed to this kind of cold.” He said. He looked over at Batman. “After all, we have to talk to an old friend of mine.”

There was no reaction from Batman whose eyes were even as the group walked into the Fortress of Solitude. Within moments, they had entered the Fortress proper. Superman whistled, but at a frequency that humans could not hear. Only a few people did. Iron Man and Spider-Man’s armor picked up the frequency. It tickled the ears of Captain America and Batman. Wolverine picked it up.

Only the other person in the room who was not a human, Mar’vyl, heard it perfectly.

Though someone else did as well. But they weren’t a two legged creature.

Krypto came bounding around a corner, running up towards Ree and the group. He skidded to a stop in front of Ree and looked around at the group. The dog gave no reaction to Batman, who remained his normal mask of a visage.

“Kal-el found a gem floating in space during one of his travels.” Superman said.

Batman knew the story. He remembered when Ree had told it, to him and to Diana not too long ago.

“He had it analyzed, and there’s a weird energy signature about it.” Superman continued. “He could never fully identify the energy signature coming off of the gem. But he could tell there was something special about it, that it needed to be protected.” He said.

“What does that have to do with the mutt?” Wolverine asked.

Superman smiled and knelt, reaching onto Krypto’s collar. He unhooked the stone that hung there. “He decided to give it to someone who he knew could properly safeguard it.” Superman rose back to his full height and turned to the rest of the group. “I think this is why you’re here.”

“So you had an Infinity Stone this entire time and you gave it to a dog?” Wolverine asked.

“The dog could probably take you.” Spider-Man said. “The Waldoes are telling me that he’s an Asgardian Wolfhound Kryptonian mix.”

Wolverine socked him in the arm.

“That was uncalled for.” Spider-Man added, rubbing his arm.

Superman held the stone out in the palm of his hand, offering it to Captain America. “I’m trusting you all with this.”

“We appreciate that, Superman.” Captain America replied.
