After the events of last week, the Dynamix team was pretty thin. Splice was working to repair and reinforce the Menagerie, Shui was working many social media angles to make sure the backlash was at a minimum, Face was fulfilling his many public appearance duties, and Figment was, well, Figment. That left Brickhouse, Byte, and Trick Shot to take care of the rest.
They spent the first part of the week making their public appearances. Byte went to a local childrens hospital to play games with the kids and show them cool technological gadgets. Trick Shot went to a local save the Ta-Tas race to raise breast cancer awareness. Brick House attended an event at Six Flags Over Texas, turning heads and taking photos.
After their events had concluded, it was time for a team meeting. Dinah had new costumes for them to try out. It was a special invention to help the heroes stay comfortable and stylish. They had a special auto-adjust feature and voice activated features to help in more discrete actions. When they were first tried on, they were bit … snug, especially in tender locations. But they helped regulate temperatures and provided extra support, sometimes when it wasn’t needed.
The team was going to be the first live humans to test them. Immediately a list of concerns popped into their heads. Brick accidentally mentioned the word ‘thong’ and the suit responded by turning into a thong. Other similar words and phrases also had reactions from the suits. This was going to be a trying trial.
The trio was then told about a new venture for DynaCorp. The Dynamix Protocol satellite system. They were going to be the special guests at the launch of the first Dynamix centered satellite system. This system would boost their communication potential and, with the help from their new suits, help track the teams location and general well being. This would also include the infrastructure for the new Dyna Channel, featuring all things Dynamix and Dyna Corp. All in all, this was going to be a new day for the Dynamix and the world.
On the way to Houston, where the launch would occur, the suits began to get itchy and new bugs were found in the system. Brick noted that there were posture issues and compared the suit to a corset, albeit the suit was less flexible. Trick Shot noticed that the fabric was a bit over reactive making his movements a bit hard to control. Byte, well, he found the suits to be snug, really snug.
With costumes barely in control, they attended the event to the crowds delight. They did the usual meet and greet, took photos, and tried to please the crowd with their limited movements. The time came for the launch and the trio was supposed to press down a plunger to mimic the launch of the rocket. The time came and they missed their mark a bit causing Brick to mutter, “Shit”. It activated her suit exposing her rear end briefly. Although the publicity stunt planned did not go off as planned, many did not seem to mind.
After the wrap up, the team headed home in the van. They wanted to stop to get some greasy food to take home and eat once the tight suits were removed and their stomachs could hold anything extra. From out of no where, the van was caught in an explosion that flipped it on it’s side and killed the driver and front seat passenger. Strange men approached the van with armor and weapons. The team came out of the van to defend themselves and through the clever use of gadgets and Bricks mighty attacks, they were quickly driven off. In the aftermath, they found bullets designed to subdue and came to the conclusion they were going to be taken and not killed. Things seemed sinister indeed.
After a grueling time at the police station and revelation that Dinah was also a high class attorney, they went back to base to discuss what happened and gather details. They also gave an update on the suits and Dinah promised their issues would be addressed. Dinah gave a command word and the suits fell off of them, which she collected to bring back to R&D, leaving the team bare-assed naked in the halls.
The next day, the team was gathered up quickly. Subject Y had been spotted and they were sent to retrieve him. They tracked him down to an old abandoned meat packing warehouse. Before they confronted him, they cleared the place of squatters and hobos. Quietly working their way through the area, they saw Subject Y standing in a room.
He was massive, bigger than Brick. He had long, stringy black hair and broken restraints all over him. Byte accidentally alerted him tot heir presence which sent Subject Y on a rampage. A searing laser beam came out of his mouth and hit Byte square in the chest and the fight was on.
The team took him out in mere seconds, and were amazed at their own abilities. Then, Subject Y got up again, meaner and tougher than before. He began spitting acid and leaping great distances. One of his acid blasts hit a support beam on an already weakened structure promising a calamitous collapse. And the team took him down again.
Again, Subject Y got up, this time growing more muscles and gaining glowing red veins. This time, he was even tougher and the team was worn out. He started taking them down fast when he was finally hit. When he took damage, his veins flared up and erupted into a dangerous explosion. The building that had been crumbling now was on the brink of disaster. As the teamed crawled away hoping Subject Y would not attack again, a piece of the floor above him fell down and hit him. This caused another eruption, a bigger blast than before. The team was blown back as the building crumbled down on top of Subject Y, triggering another blast, a blast they would not witness because they lost consciousness.
When they came to, the back up team they had called earlier was already fixing them. There was noting left of the building but a huge crater. No evidence of the building or Subject Y could be found. It seemed as though the damage caused him to explode, disintegrating himself. It was a hard fought victory that left one terrifying thought. What about Subjects X & Z?
