Jack tilted his head at Strange. Ok.... That was worse than this. And then he commented that he knew what Toni was thinking. Heck, Jack didn't know her that well and still knew she wanted to fight. Must've been ingrained in Stark DNA. He noticed she asked Strange what he was thinking, which got the teen confused. What was going through her head now? Then, almost as soon as it started, Jack was thrown back into his body and shot awake.
"Crap! That was... nuts!" He then eyed Toni, seeing that she was trying to get up to fight. Jack honestly began to wonder is she could be any more stubborn? The moment she tried to pull the various IVs and wires off of her was when he got up, reaching out a gloved hand before she stopped by herself. Well... if she hadn't noticed yet she noticed now. Dang it! Before Jack could say anything, MALCOLM seemed to talk so sense into her. He sighed, looking at her.
"Hey I get wantin' ta help, but let's face it. Ya lost a lotta blood and need rest, and my powers ain't really... indoor friendly." Along with other reasons. "We're both outta this one."
The Carnage girl fell onto the floor, as she got back up, she was about to strike again, this time going for the killing strike until... ZAP! She was electrocuted, the symbiote fell to the floor, dissolving, leaving the girl's body, she had been freed, but is she still okay?
Carnage struck the generators of the Hospital pretty rapidly until they explode. "You saw what I did to those Generators, now imagine that being you!" He said to them as he cackled, he then raced toward them. before he could get to them, he saw two tendrils coming for him, he dodged the two, however, he didn't have time to dodge the incoming energy that struck him. The beam had hit him from head to toe as he couldn't move even though he knew could try as hard as he might, there was no possible way, he was frozen from head to toe, as he looked on and noticed some sort of an armored being, until he noticed it was some sort of alien creature. He didn't like the interference of his so called fun. "What the hell is wrong with me?!" He asked. "Why can't I move?"

Toni did not like this. This situation, or what got her there, or why she was stuck here until her injuries healed. Toni never liked hospitals, or needles, or literally anything that stunk of death. In fact, just simply not liking the situation wasn’t even the right way to put it. She hated it, loathed it, abhorred it, and she just wanted to go back home to her room, or her lab, or hell, even just to New York in general. She smirked and crossed her arms, which unfortunately made the hand with the IV in it hurt.
She clenched her jaw in pain and uncrossed her arms, still not happy with the situation at hand. She should be out fighting, or from what she gathered, the fight was likely over. Whoever attacked the hospital was either really stupid or really smart, given that most in the general vicinity were defenceless. But Toni was a fighter. She had the gusto to get through this.
As she was mulling over all the shit that just happened, the beeping of the machines next to her ceased and the power cut out. “Just my luck,” she lamented. “Could this day get any worse!?” She huffed and sighed again, tapping her fingers impatiently. Hopefully they’d have the backup generators going soon, and power restored to the hospital. If her father were still in the lobby filling out paperwork, he probably wouldn’t be able to see very well unless it was very well lit outside. Then again, she hadn’t thought about the time of day. But that wasn’t important right now. What was, was her getting better pronto, and getting home.
“MALCOLM, I’m getting bored. Could you queue up some music?” She asked, hoping for an answer. One beat passed before she received an answer.
“Yes, of course, Miss Stark. What are your tastes this evening? Rock-and-roll? Classical? Perhaps something more adventurous?” The AI was close by, thank whatever gods were out there besides the ones she knew, and completely understood, or seemed to.
“Anything is fine, MALCOLM. Maybe some Disturbed. The Sound of Silence is one of my favourites.” She smiled, but looked at the disc-shaped AI. “One of these days I should reconfigure your looks. I don’t want anyone mistaking you for a frisbee... again.” She chuckled. “What do you think about a necklace? Like a locket or something?”
Another beat passed before MALCOLM responded. “Miss Stark, as long as I can be of assistance to yourself and your companions, physical form does not matter to me. If you desire to program me into a piece of jewelry, I shan’t protest.” In the following seconds, the song of Toni’s choice began playing, and the girl calmed.

Loki turned towards his prince, his face as serious as ever. "Harvesters" was all he said as he turned back to the object of his attention it was fuming, it's anger was palpable to the powerful Darksider that stood before it, what was more was more, Loki could sense that there were two life forms within the red being, living in complete and total symbiosis. "Interesting..." He said as he moved forward the weapon in his hand melted away up his arm, his right arm was now encased in metal similar to the left one. The Zabrak lifted his arms.
Then he reached with the force, feeling the very makeup of the being before him, each molecule and atom that made up its genetic makeup, it was human and alien combined in one single body. Powerful too. But it could be seperated. The Zabrak began to tug, yanking on the different atoms and bondings between the two beings, but slow, he was sure this would cause agony for the being stuck at his mercy, but he would not kill him, not yet, a feeling in the back of his head told him to show mercy to the creature for some reason, Loki wouldn't know it, but the creatures master was coaxing him from afar. But torture, torture was on the menu. "If you do not leave this place, I will rip you atom from atom, seperating you from whatever alien creature is bonded to you. And I will relish it..." With that Loki tugged harder at the beings very core, pulling this way and that, causing what he hoped was agony.
I Serve The House Adasca For That Is My Duty and Duty is Life, To Betray That, The Sentence Is Death.
The girl was whimpering, but she nodded in response to Ryuusei. "Yeah, but my dad... He's..." It was hard for her to say that her father was indeed dead, but it was hard for her to say that without tearing up again.
She noticed the lights went out as well. "That creature, must have found the Generator." She said, recalling the red and black symbiote.
Carnage had no idea what was going on or why the guy was walking up to him, but one thing is for sure, he couldn't move out f the way or attack, he was immobile at the moment and probably will stay that way till the guy decides to let him go.
He then felt some agony as he screamed. "SQUEEE!!!" He cried from the pain that he was receiving, it felt like his body was being ripped in two, as he started breathing heavily, he couldn't believe that an Alien could do that to him, but he had to admit that this didn't really surprise him, ever since he was on a different alien planet, one of his weaknesses was swapped with another one. "S-Stop... I'll... Go..." He said to the creature. he was indeed breathing between the words because of the agony that he was receiving.
He was relieved to hear the girl was alright...but then she mentioned something happening to her dad, but as she was trying to say just 'what', she began to tear up.
He'd been around enough kids to know that expression...that she'd just lost a parent; and while never having them himself, that didn't keep him from embracing the girl. "It's okay, you don't have to say it..."
He waited a few moments before speaking again. "My name's Ryuusei, what's yours?"
Tony was giving orders now, the threat had moved outside, normally he would give chase, but he could hear War-Machine powering up outside. He Elected to stay inside and coordinate rescue efforts. His Drones where doing their bit when the power went out. A few moments passed however and the backup generators kicked in, there was screaming and crying all around, the last of the symbiote infected had been hit with inhibitor drugs and where slowly coming round back to normalcy. Tony sighed there wasn't much more he could do, and some people where gawking at him, he had no idea that in this world he was fiction. A figment of the great Stan Lee's mind, and now he walked among them, and among them so too did his enemies, Carnage, and perhaps more. Tony's armor suddenly began to slip away back into its holding tank in his chest. He stood up and stretched, waving a doctor away who thought he might need help. He turned and looked around, his drones where doing everything in their power to assist the Nurses and Doctors. Tony decided to make his way back to his daughter room.
Slipping through the door into the darkened interior the first thing Tony noticed was Strange laying on the ground. "Ahh shit.." Tony leaned down quickly and checked Strange for a pulse. "Well that's a relief.." Tony whispered to himself forgetting that Jack was in the room momentarily as he kneeled by Strange. "Man, what a day you know, three hours ago I was sitting in my penthouse now I'm in Vegas.. Wish I could say this was the craziest thing I've been through. He muttered, finally he stood and looked at Antonia, the kid had done good, she had not been on many heroing missions and to be thrust into one, like she had it was lucky she wasn't worse off. Tony whistled to himself and sank into a chair by her bed. Knowing Strange was either just knocked out or resting, or doing his best Ghost impression, Tony leaned back and closed his eyes.
Jack just shook his head at Toni's efforts. He could tell she wasn't enjoying being stuck in a bed right now, but he couldn't really blame her. It was then that the lights went out, and the machines keeping an eye on Stark's condition. Great.... Jack pulled off one of the hospital gloves, pulling out a playing card and charging it to give them a little more light. Wasn't quite night yet, but it was dark enough. As the card added some pink/purple light to the room, he listened to Toni speak to her A.I., chuckling a bit.
"Ya know ya almost sound normal talkin' to MALCOLM there." He then noticed Tony Stark walk in, and quickly removed the charge from the card he had. He was almost certain he would be yelled at if he didn't. He smiled a bit watching how Stark was acting, but then sighed a bit, looking down. He hoped his family was ok. It was then that a nurse came in, seeming to be making the rounds after everything. She looked around, eyeing everyone.
"Everyone ok in here?" She waited for the an answer, with Jack just giving a nod, then she noticed his still gloved hand. "Sir. The gloves are for the doctors and nurses." Jack just looked uncomfortable.
"Oh. Uh.... Sorry.... Bit of a germiphobe." Well there was one thing he didn't get from his dad. That was about as convincing as Galactus being a good guy. The nurse shook her head, then seemed to think of something.
"You came in with them didn't you? Are you hurt?" Jack just shook his head.
"Do I look hurt, ma'am? I'm fine." The nurse just looked at him, not seeming convince, and walked up.
"A quick look couldn't hurt. If your right, nothing lost." When the nurse tired to move a bit closer, Jack went to push her away with his ungloved hand.
"I said I don't need it." And then he accidentally touch her skin, and quickly went to pull back, but it seemed she was still weakened.
"What did you...?" She stopped when she noticed that the couch Jack had placed his hand on after pulling away, and it seemed to take on a pinkish glow. "Oh my word! What on earth!" Jack looked at the couch, quickly seeming to try and remove the kinetic charge from the couch, but he also seemed... less calm than he usually was.
"I... I can't stop it! There's too much energy! I can't stop it!"

The creature screamed in agony as Loki nearly tore the creature apart with the force. It was amazing how the Zabrak was able to use the venerable font of power, even here on this foreign, alien world that had presented nothing but conflict thus far. While Tidus was a force user as well, it never manifested itself into the physical abilities of his protector. It -had- given him an uncanny ability to use technology, and create it after seeing something work only once or twice.
It was more of a talent than anything else. Tidus had designed the Harvester armor, along with his own suit, and the electronic controllers in Loki's prototype suit as well. So far, the technology that the Arkanian contingent had brought along seemed to be pretty far ahead of the others here. That didn't, however, mean that there wasnt any other threats out there with superior gear as well.
At least they seemed to be fairly friendly. That was always a plus.
Before Tidus even had a chance to engage, the creature started squealing again, and begging to be released, promising to leave if it was. That might not be such a good idea....they had the opportunity to kill it now, before it could harm anyone else....perhaps they should.
Loki's entrance had been delayed by other harvesters, apparently. No wonder he had taken so long...they weren't easy to overcome. Smiling at his charged protector, Tidus nodded.
"Well, you have always said they weren't anything you couldn't handle...No excuse...." Chuckling, Tidus decided to address the creature.
"I believe you are too dangerous to be allowed to live. However, I will let your fate in the hands of your captor. Loki? Its up to you. Do as you wish."

Toni smirked. Many things were going through her head, rapid-fire as usual. First on her mind was where the hell Doctor Strange was. Granted, he was probably surveying things and making sure there were no immediate threats to her or anyone else in the hospital. In other words, what he normally did as a superhero and Sorcerer Supreme. As she waited for something to happen - other than the glowing couch, which didn't faze her for whatever reason - she focused on the music MALCOLM still had playing in the background. This time, the song had switched to "Only Time" by Enya.
She looked over at Jack as if seeking answers, and he was some kind of shaman or another mystical person who could provide them - even if he wasn't. She sighed. "What the fuck is going on? I've lost track, honestly," she said as she watched everything and everyone, not giving a single fuck at this point.
"Miss Stark, your vitals are stable. At this rate, discharge is imminent," MALCOLM said, after which Toni assumed he would have smiled if he had a face.
"Good," she said. Then she sighed again. She'd done a lot of that today it seemed.
Jack heard Toni, and shot her a glare that had more venom behind it than any words could have right now.
"Do ya have cotton in ya ears? I can't control my powers! I-it's like they're on overload of somethin'!" The mutant kept his grip on the couch, but he slowly seemed to regain his composure. He closed his eyes and focused, trying to lower the kinetic energy that the object possessed. Finally, the light slowly seemed to be fading. It was slow, but it was fading. The nurse from earlier still looked terrified, but seemed to be thinking of something.
"If he's the source...." She then ran over and went to pull Jack away.
"What the heck are ya...?!" He focused as hard as he could, not seeming to be able to fight being pulled away. He was at least able to pull more of the energy away before being yanked away. Jack's eyed went wide as he heard a bang, but he looked around to see... stuffing? He looked to see the couch now gone, but the room hadn't exploded. The teen only looked at everyone before he hid his face. He... he nearly killed them. He nearly hurt so many people....

Loki tilted his head at the creature as it spoke, he understood it, but it's language was strange, or rather it's manner of speaking. Loki shrugged, and kept pulling while he did so the stasis rockets seemed to fold in on themselves, and slither towards them. His power was enough to keep the being held in place. "If you attempt to attack myself, my Prince, or anyone under our care again Alien, I will rip you to shreds, do we have an understanding?" Loki said finally easing up on his pain and letting him hit the ground with his feet. Loki's weapon was still pointed at the being, blade glinting off the various flashing lights coming from around them, and his eyes flashed yellow and then back to a simple shining silver. Just looking at him one could see the face of the consummate warrior, and a powerful one at that.
I Serve The House Adasca For That Is My Duty and Duty is Life, To Betray That, The Sentence Is Death.
Feeling the embrace of the stranger seemed to have calmed her down a little as she heard him ask a question. "Bren...Brenda." She spoke.
Carnage couldn't help but feel the pain. "Y-Yes, I-I-I un...der..stand." He replied in pain, he was soon free, but he didn't leave, as the symbiote began to heal it's host, the creature glared and stared at Loki and Tidus, as if he was putting them in his memory banks in the corner of his mind, he knew that if he had a camera, he would take a picture so the faces would last longer, but he never forgot a face. Then he took off, leaving the hospital and everyone behind as he used his red and black tendrils to web swing across the city. Deep down, he knew that he was about to die if the creature hadn't been so kind to let him go, but as they say, he who fights and runs away, lives to see another day. The words that Tidus spoke has crossed his mind, he knew who to meet and why as the Hospital was out of his line of sight.
?Nice to meet ya, Brenda." And released the hug. "I'm gonna get you to somewhere safe (I hope)."
He leads Brenda back the way he came, but as they reached the door to Toni's room, they would hear a 'bang' coming from within! Immediately, he kicked the door in, "Alright, you son of a bitch...huh?" and beheld the pile of stuffing!
