Surrounded! by JECBrush

First of all, the set up is really nice and fit well with the starfox universe. The reflection on the water is flawless and the splashi...


For many great city, night time is when some of it's most interesting story emerge and were myth are born from. Even some of world most famous superheroes originated from it's dark alleys. Tonight however is the time for a forgotten hero to return into the light once more to face his inner demons.

Rooftops of an apartment building-Angel Falls- 10:30pm

Standing on top on the building, Waylon final put together his new suit in a record time of 3 days and with only 37 failed 'prototype'. He walk back and forth with is headphones integrated into his ear piece  set to the police emergency line. So far nothing came as he walk back and forth trying to stay patient. As he was about to call the night off early, an emergency call for backup suddenly come to his attention.  4 person just rob a bank and are escaping, there were last seen heading toward the industrial park in a blue sedan.

The cop on the radio didn't have the time to finish speaking that Waylon already took off in a blur, running down the building and into the street. For the pedestrian on street, they could only see and yellow and black blur speeding zig zagging between cars in the traffic. Despite the situation he couldn't stop thinking about one of the nuns who was running the orphanage he grew up in who always lecture the children about playing in the street and run around the place. Finding the runaway car in the park wasn't as difficult as he thought at first, as the loud siren of the police cars tend to help. The robbers were driving a 70's Chevy with the cops not far behind. As Waylon finally catch up with them, one of the crook pull out his
assault rifle and start unloading on the cop car. The first 5 shot hit the hoods and breaks the front lights, the cop at the wheel try to avoid getting hit more and start swinging the car left and right. SSM quickly got to work and quickly ran by the crooks Chevy and yank the rifle from the guys hand, probably breaking the guy hands in the process. Before the policemen could react, the 4 crook were sitting in their back seat with a few bruises and cuts.  

The now driverless getaway car safely finish his run in a ditch with the ''help'' of the yellow blur.  

Well that went alright he thought to himself as he kept running around town to find others to help.

For the following 2 hours, Mercury saved two person falling from a construction site, prevent one hit and run, send two drug dealer to jail and send a pimp to the hospital for abusing ''his employee''.  Afterwards Waylon took a break a top of a tall skyscraper to catch his breath. The view was so refreshing  from his home in Ireland and he could see himself coming more often there. He was glad to chose this place to  get himself back in tune, with it's large population and with strong superheroes community perhaps he could learn a thing or two from the city veteran heroes.  Before heading home however, he took a selfie of him with the city in the background and send it the his friend Abby with a little message saying Thanks for the pep talk Abby.

The next morning.

Still laying in bed for her day off, Abby was woken up by the vibration of her cellphone. She was half awake and a bit annoy to get up so early in her day off.  She finally pick her phone and check who text her , what she saw wake her up as efficiently as an ice bucket to the face.  She smile at the sight of her friend finally being in his element and to see him being happy.

Her attention shift by the mysterious appearance of a warm coffee cup on her desk next to her bed with a small note and a small cardboard box. She gladly took the coffee, having a good idea from who it may come from. While take a sip from it, she also check the note which said I found a little something along the way back for you, hope you like it.

She finally take the box in her hand and open it.  In it was a Japanese Maneki-neko, a cute cat figurine who is also a lucky charm.

''You really have a problem with your sens of orientation''  She said to herself while letting out a small laugh and putting the cat figurine on her desk.

Unknown location.

In a dark room only illuminated by the dozen of holographic screens showing a yellow lighting bolt running through the streets in Angel Falls, a man dress in an overall black outfit. On the table where he rested his arms was an old gas mask with red eyes next to a warm cup of tea. He took interest in on particular shot in which the mysterious lightning bolt disarm a run away bank robber. He slow down the footage as much as his computer allow him to do but it was enough to see a blurry human silhouette.

'' Welcome back Mr. Mercury, it's been a while.'' Said the man in the shadow to himself while drink his tea cup with a devilish grin.
The fastest thing in Ireland is coming to AF
The third and last origin chapter for the Super Sonic Man. If you got any suggestion or comment don't hesitate to leave a comment and ill answer when I got the time.
Howth - Ireland-7:30 PM

A few days after his little show at the oil rig, peoples on social network are still theorizing who was the mysterious blue speedster.  Some people thought it was a new heroes from the American city of Angel Falls and a few other speedsters including Speedy. The workers were also brought up for interviews. Most of them talk about how they could barely see him move and how he ''survive'' being shot at by two machine guns. Despite being unsure he should have gone there but seeing how people react to it all felt nice.

While still reading the news on his tablet, a feminine figure sneak behind his back and put her hand in front of his eyes and says '' ggguuueeessss who ?'' she said giggling.

The voice immediately bring a warm and comforting feels to the cold nights. The woman in question is Waylon's BFF Abigail Collins, who also  teach gymnastic and take care of the neighbourhoods boxing club. She sat next him and check  what Waylon's reading.

'' so, they still can't take a photo of you that isn't blurred ?'' She said smirking.

Waylon chuckle and add '' They didn't even get my good side''.

Both shared a good laugh as the sun completely disappear out of sight. However despite the jokes and praise,  he knew he couldn't go back to his old ways  since the last time almost wipe Dublin off the map.

'' Hey don't go all brooding on me, I know the sun is down but you doesn't have to follow it'' Said Abby in respond to her friend sudden silence.

'' Oh sorry about that I got lost in my thought, what's up ? '' Ask Waylon, trying to change subject.

'' well my best friend is an ex-superhero who can break the sound barrier in sneakers but let's his past ruins his future'' said Abby with a more cynical tone.

Abby sudden change of attitude took him by surprise but he know understand why she climb to the roof to see him. After all she knew him better than anyone else.

She didn't give Waylon a chance to put a word in and continues.

'' Listen, I know you got your reasons for stopping but you know better than I that the world need you to come back, hell you need to come back. I saw the spark of  hope and excitement in your eyes beyond the mask.  ''She said while putting her hand on his shoulder and move closer.

''Don't you think there's enough heroes out there to protect the earth ?'' he ask with a small sorrowful smile.

'' True there are hundreds of them all over the globe, with or without super powers but you got your place among them as well. You were given a great gift for a reason, you can do what others don't even have the time to think about it'' Abby said with a  strong and confident tone.

she's right and you know with ! Screamed the little voice in his head which was either his conscience or hidden desire, which both seems to be agreeing for once. For the last 10 years, he ignored that voice and endure the recurrence nightmares about the return of General Plague and his former colleague. It even got as far as him sleep walking to the Euro Defender's old lab to work on god knows what. He closes his eyes, trying to get a clear answer as Abby adds :

'' I know that  General guy destroy your old friends but by giving up you let the one armed c***face wins.  This time run ! Run straight at him  and smack his face in pieces ! Show the world what a super sonic man can do ! '' those last word echoes thought Mercury's mind,  slowly washing all doubts away.  His fears melted away and transforms into bombastic roar calling wanting justice.  The once feared image of his nemesis turn into a desire for retribution. He suddenly open his eyes,glowing yellow for a split second.

'' Are you alright ? '' she ask concern.

He stand up, smiling and said ''thanks for the talk but I have to go but don't worry, Ill be back in a flash''  Before zooming off into new night.

At first Abigail thought she said something wrong but having his friend quoting one of his favourite childhood superhero is a good sign that she hit the right spot. She could hardly wait to see what was going to happen next with her friend.

Go get them tiger.

-Euro Defender underground HQ- Great Britain-8:10PM

Despite the original building housing the HQ being demolish, the sewage tunnel that lead to the underground part of the base was still intact. The entrance was sealed off  with large metal bar and fill with tape that spelled  Do not enter. Not a real problem unless for those who can vibrate their molecule through matter as Waylon enter the old dusty lab. The old place show it's age as several sheet of dust covered most of the place, except for the traces of foot mark on the ground. This comes as no surprise to him as he recognize the foot print left as the one on his custom made boots. The last time he came was while sleepwalking and for some reason building gadget. Perhaps his brain was preparing itself for his return but after seeing all the left over material and machinery, he smiled. Just imagining the potential gizmos that could come from and to finally make a new suit made him smile. Not that he hated the good old blue and white one but the suit had made his time and now Mercury needed to shine under new colours. On table on his left was a bunch of reinforce spandex and Kevlar tissue along with an issue of one of his favourite comic book series. This however surprise him, how did it land here ? He thought.

Out of curiosity he start flipping the pages. He stop at a page showing one of the villains sporting a yellow suit, which seems like a nice colour. He then sat at a nearby table with a dozen sheet of papers and a few pencil.

Let's see if I can still make a decent looking suit in yellow  He told himself before letting loose his creativity in a blur of movement into the night.
Dusty memories
The second origin story for my speedster. I still have one more like that before launching him into the world of Angel falls. If anyone got any suggestion or comment, my ears are all open.

Part of the universe of angel falls:

**The reference to actual comic were removed from the original due to possible issue that could result from it.**
I knew I'm not putting journal very often but I felt i needed to let you peoples know what's coming up for the super sonic man and others.

I'm still in the process of figuring out where to send the speedster next, for now im bouncing back between to scenario. One is long and quite dark and the other one is potentially shorter, less grim with a bit of humor in it.

I can't give an exact time ill be done with him but I will finish that story and many others that will followed.

For the Red Guard, honestly have no idea what im going to do exactly with him but I'm planning to appear in SSM stories in parallel.

If anyone got suggestion my doors is always open.

Well that's it for now, Akiba signing off. 
Stepping into the sun

Howth – Dublin – 9:30 PM

( suggested song: Silver Neelsen pilot theme )

Another quiet night for the 35 year old College teacher, mostly occupied in correcting exam while preparing his next class and flashing through dozen of news channels. Even for a semi retired hero, being able to act at super speed does have it's advantages in normal day activities. The exam was beginning to pile up on his antique wooden desk next to his old cathodic  TV.  His big St Bernard ,affectionately called Daisy, was taking a nice nap on the couch behind Waylon's desk.  His pile of exam were mostly corrected, about 78 percent of his class pass and the others were the ones who didn't cared to study.

Before he could add some comment to the last exam, his cellphone buzzed. He look at the phone see a text send from a colleague.

-Yo Mercury, hiking with the other teachers tomorrow
Wanna join ? -Abby

Abigail Collin was the very first person who talk to him when he was hired at UCD. Since then they became good friend and help setting up activities for the student. He quickly slip up his mini keyboard and replied :

-Count me in :D

''Why not'' he thought before putting his cellphone on his desk. The night was getting so quiet and dull you could hear hair growing on Waylon's shaved head. His attention drift toward a special news bulletin that interrupt the boring knock off of Jersey Shore that was playing on TV.  

A big robbery was thwart by the police but some officers and bystanders were injured in the process. A feeling of guilt began to grow inside of him.

I could have helped, prevent those people from getting hurt. He though.

(suggested song: Jim Croce - Time in a bottle )

He sat up and headed for his room on the second floor of the house. In his closet,on the right of his wooden bed, among the various shirts and polo's a mysterious metal case lay beneath the throw away piece of clothing. In a blur, Waylon moves the clothes away and open the case.

A tsunami of memories surge back at the sight of his old costume. Made of a special mix of Kevlar and spandex,the blue and white suit could withstand extreme speed and vibration. Custom made shoulder pad,wrist band and belt were added to give him some protection and to store gadgets. Over the fabric and padding were a pair of black biker goggle. To his surprise they still look pretty good even after going through sonic booms, extreme weather condition, from Mach 1 to 10 speeds etc...
Souvenir from his time among the Euro Defender, a short lived defence and rescue team. With time he grow to consider them his own family before they all turn on him out of jealousy over his gift. The power he once consider a gift turn into a curse that day. Burn mark were still visible on the fabric, scars made by his former friends who attempt to take his life and half of Dublin along with it.

Still lost in his though, his mind snap back to reality when another breaking news bulletin came on.

A group of Eco-terrorist as seize control of an oil rig off shore of California. They are holding the worker's hostages and are demanding the end of oil exploitation. They are armed with automatic weapons and explosive. The authorities can't board the rig or the terrorist will detonate the charges. To gives us more detail about the situation, here's the chief of poli....

That's it. I'm coming !

(suggested theme: The Flash Soundtrack OST - Trailer Theme)

Mopping around wouldn't help he though to himself, they needed him. Even thought his former ally were waiting for him to resurface, he couldn't stay down forever. People need a speedster, a guardian faster than light, a hero. With his gift, he also gain a responsibility toward those in need and damn it he won't let them down.
In less than a second, Waylon put on his old suit and goggle and race to the coast but not before locking his back door. The city of Howth became a blur of colour and light except for what's in front of him. Even after all these years, running across the Atlantic ocean still fell awesome to him. In a plane, Howth to California takes 14 hours. On foot at super speed, around 10 minute or less. The biggest time eater is avoiding obstacle along the way such as trees, cars on highways and narrow streets. Traffic jam doesn't help either.

Note to self: find a way to install google maps in the goggle so I won't get stuck in traffic again ! He though

''Finally'' arriving at the oil rig, things didn't look too good. Police boat surround the rig but heavily armed thugs is keeping them from doing anything.

No sight of the explosive, either a they are a bluff or they are deeper inside the rig. He thought.

The upper part of the oil platform is guarded by goons using M60 machine guns and they don't seem to be the type to give up out of fear of being arrested. He could barely hear voices coming from the central platform over the chatter from the  nearby cops. Before they could notice the blue blur coming, Waylon made his move.

Showtime !

Zooming by the police boat's, Speedy run up one of the oil rig support pillars and climb it in a blink a eye while leaving a blurry blue trail behind. Quickly racing around the platform,  he could see the worker being tied up at the far right of the central platform around a pile of oil barrel and the dozen terrorist standing in front of them. They seem surprisingly calm for people surrounded by cops. Their leader is a woman in her mid 30 with long red hair,wearing a sleek black trench coat and wielding a compact version of an  AK 47. She was still yapping on her phone for her demand when Mercury zoom between them and stood right between them and the captured worker.

'' Hi there'' said Speedy smiling beneath his old blue and white mask. The terrorist all point out their weapon toward him, shocked to see an intruder who manage to sneak up on them ,especially in such colourful clothing.  

''Who the f**** are you ? '' Yelled their leader while pointing her gun, ready to fire.

'' Oh me ? Just the guy who is going to kick you butt all the way to jail and before you start shooting, remember everyone, there's oil barrels right behind me and will blow up if you shoot so you might as well give up an---'' was saying Speedy before getting cut by the terrorist lead who yelled at her two big goon from the upper platform. Both of them were dressed in black army fatigue and have large ammunition belt over their shoulders. They grinned as they were pointing their monstrous machine guns and pulled the trigger.

As the rain of bullet came from both of their direction, heading straight for Waylon. Any ordinary person would have run away from the shot but he stood still like a statue. Instead of doing so, he spin around as fast as a small tornado and vanish in the blurry cyclone. The big goon emptied their long chain of ammunition into the cyclone hoping to hit the blue speedster. The worker held hostage were screaming for their lives until Speedy finally came to a stop.

You could have heard a pin dropped. The hostage jaws dropped and the Eco-terrorist faces went white as a ghost. In each of Waylon hand, piles of bullets still warm and slipping between his finger.

''your done now ? Sweet, now it's my turn'' said Speedy grinning behind his mask as the entire world around him begin to slow down.

Drop of rains began to fall but from the speedster point of view, they seems to took forever to hit the ground. The screams from the hostages fades into inaudible sounds and the movement of his foes were barely noticeable. From his point of view, the world flow like a grain of sand in an hourglass.  
Without wasting anytime, he quickly grabbed one bullet at of time and throw them back at their sender's while making sure it wouldn't kill them.

The first volley spark the platform all around the first big guy, making him fall of and straight into the water. The last one makes the last big goon run and fall down to the main platform where was everyone else.  The poor bastard was disoriented and flipping out but he still seems to have some fight left in him.

Waylon took a few step near the mercenary and ask: ''Wanna surrender now lad ? ''

The big guy was turning red in anger at the speedster for turning him and his partner into a joke. He quickly count his option through his head as the blue and white dressed super hero walk toward him. He slowly reach into his secret pouch on the rear of his bulletproof jacket and grab a hand grenade and prepare to send the speedster out with a bang.  

Speedy finally came to a few centimetre from the hired gun and ask with a surprisingly calm  voice '' Last chance to surrender Bob and I strongly  recommend you to take it.''  

'' FUCK YOU !!! '' yelled the mercenary as he pull out the grenade and pull the safety pin but before he could throw it at the speedster, he swing both of his arm backward and clap both hand at super sonic speed ,creating a  sonic boom that send the grenade flying into the air away from the platform and from the surrounding police forces.*BOOM*

The explosion send a strong shock wave that could be felt on the entire oil platform as the giant fireball illuminate the sky above. The crook was finally down and the police eventually swarm the place.  Waylon look around him, no one was seriously injured and nothing exploded with the exception for the grenade and probably the ear drums of the mercenary.

A relatively good night He thought before something from the corner of his eye caught his attention.

For a split second a tall figure with bright and round red eyes was standing at the top of the drill well looking at him before vanishing in a puff of black smoke.

I thought you would be watching,  fine by me because I’m done running from you. He said to himself before running off into night.

It's not the first time that mysterious man appear where Speedy went. Even thought he didn't get a clear look at the person he knew all too well an  old acquaintance when he see one.

For years now Waylon put away his super hero career because of that man who turn the closest thing of a family he had into his deadliest enemy and turning Dublin into a war zone. However he kept training and developing new techniques for the day they would meet again but not tonight. For now however, bad guys went down and nobody got hurt, perhaps to celebrate his little victory he could make a quick detour to threat himself to some fried chicken, a cold one and perhaps work on a few new gadgets before sun rise.
