Chronicles of Spidy: The Spider-man of the west
Ive been running for hours
I was tired, beads of sweat were falling into my eyes & down my face adding to my already sweat drenched body. I had numerous cuts on my body & my clothes were shredded exposing my fresh bloody scars. There were many twigs & leaves in my ear-length hair & bugs were swarming around me. I was starting to feel light-headed from blood loss, fear, & hunger, mostly hunger I thought as my stomach made a loud growl. I stopped to rest on a tree; & winced in pain at my seemingly cracked ribs. I was in a dense humid jungle at the edge of a large trench of a canyon on the outskirts of a large urban city. I got up in pain as my stomach made another ferocious growl then paused
Thats not my stomach! I said to myself. Then I whipped my head around as a buzzing sensation in my head went berserk. I saw a giant scaly reptile claw swatting trees away & coming straight for me. I jumped high enough to avoid the claw & land on it with either great skill or just dumb luck, hard to tell.
Then I was either stupid or insane(probably insane) as I jumped for the monsters head & landed on its face only to jump off again shooting a barrage of web from my wrists into the things face& landed in a large tree on the side of the cliff side as I blinded the beast with my counter attack. I started to study it as the large monster went into panic; it was a giant lizard-mutant creature. It was 12 feet tall with a large tail & large spikes jetted from its back. The giant lizard roared in rage & panic as I went pale-faced with fear as I saw its three rows of large razor-sharp teeth. Then the large lizard flicked out its forked-tongue as if it were looking for something
Like a snake hunting for its prey. I mistakenly said to myself, as the lizard whipped its head in my direction. Then got into a pouncing position & charged straight for me as I froze in horror & braced myself as the lizard rammed into the tree I was taking shelter in. The force of the impact was enough to knock me out the tree, rip the tree from its roots & over the cliff, the lizard became disoriented from the impact & fell over the edge of the cliff after me. But Im getting ahead of myself; let me start from the beginning.
For now lets shine the focus somewhere else, it was a typical day in Jump City it was mid-fall, & crime rates were low, & just off the cost of the city sat the T-shaped tower that housed the five heroes of the city. The inside was just as quiet as the rest of the city
aside from the insults Cyborg & Beastboy exchanged as they played a racing game on the gamestation .Youre going down Cy! cried Beastboy as he furiously tapped the controller buttons. Not on your life grass-stain! replied Cyborg as he was on the verge of breaking his controller. Robin the team leader was sitting at the kitchen table reading the newspaper. Across from him sat raven sipping her herbal tea & reading a mystery murder novel. Behind Raven, in the kitchen Starfire was preparing some strange tameraniean dish. Dude
so not fair! whined as he slumped of the couch & into the kitchen. Come back when your better grass-stain! taunted Cyborg as he waved the controller in the air. Beastboy made his way into the kitchen to get himself a tofu-salad lunch. As he got what he needed, Beast boy couldnt help but question the meal Starfire was cooking. Star, what is that? Pudding of remembrance, on tameran it is made to celebrate annual events. Starfire replied happily while stirring the pudding in a bowl. Oh, yeah its been a year since weve gone to Japan, and since you & Robin got together. Beastboy said remembering the events of the past year, which was very boring. Ever since the Brotherhood of Evil was defeated all that was left for the Titans were petty crimes & a few minor crises. Aside from that the titans have done some growing up, Cyborg was the oldest & due to the fact he was half machine he was still at 19, 6 ft. 9 in. Robin was 18 at 5 ft. 8in.Starfire was 17 at 5 ft. 7in. Both Beastboy & Raven were 17 at 5 ft. 6 in. Cyborg & Starfire still looked the same; however Beastboy & Robin have gained a little muscle. Raven was taller, let her hair grow a bit & looked older, ever since the Trigon crisis her powers were less attached to her emotions. Beastboy finished remembering the past year & finished making his lunch.
As Beastboy made his way into the kitchen the book Raven was reading caught his eye. Hey Raven! Watcha reading? asked Beastboy peering over Ravens shoulder. A book. Raven replied plainly. What kind of book? Beastboy asked as he peered over Ravens other shoulder. A mystery murder novel. Raven said wit irritation in her voice.
Beastboy was silent for a moment & then said, Can I borrow it when youre done?
This caught Raven by surprise. You read? Aw come on Raven Im not that dumb! Beastboy defensively as his ears dropped obviously offended. Thats not what I meant! Raven said re-assuring Beastboy. Its just the thought of you reading. I know it scares me too! At that Raven chuckled a bit. Dude! Did you just laugh at one of my jokes?! Beastboy said surprised to hear Raven laugh at one of his jokes. Ill admit you have your moments. Raven said with a ghost of a smile. Which ones? Beastboy asked with a raised eyebrow. Raven was about to say something but was cut-off as the alarm went off. Whats the trouble this time Cyborg? Robin asked Cyborg as he ran into the living room as the other titans followed. Weve got multiple disturbances in the canyon outside of the city. Cyborg said as he was typing away at the computers keyboard Alright, Titans, GO! Robin said as they went into action.
Somewhere deep in the dark corners of Paris, France a tall dark figure loomed into an old abandoned castle. The figure journeyed into the castle until he found the room he was looking for. It was a large throne room/holding chamber, with many floors ascending into shelves put there to display trophies, & there were many. All of which were frozen figures of every fallen criminal the Titans have encountered, well almost all of them. The figure walked among the frozen villains, recognizing each one & ordering them from weakest to strongest in his mind until he reached the end of the row. The frozen figure at the end had his image on the torn banners hanging from the large room, The Brain. The dark figure walked further down to a console at the far end of the room, & powered the machine on, & soon the figure of the frozen Brain started to defrost rapidly. The dark figure walked to were the frozen brain sat in a puddle of water. What has happened? asked The Brain once his speech system came online. Your brother hood was defeated by the Teen Titans nearly a year ago. I came to offer an alliance. The figure spoke coldly. The Brain took a minute to think, then said And if I refuse? Thats not the smartest of options for you right now. said the figure with a stern look. Who are you? asked the brain after another moment went by. Me? You & your associates can call me, Slade. The villain responded finally revealing himself as the Titans most dangerous enemy.
