He stabs his, with a lightning-sheathed blade.

Whenever the creatures get close enough, Thekla channels the electricity into them. It’s not enough to kill them, but it does hold them still until someone else can kill them.

Bambi closes her eyes, whispers something, and then walks out to meet them.

One raises a fist, and Bambi simply touches its chest. It takes seconds for it to fall, dead.

They're humans. Or were. They've been - stitched together with something, on a fundamental level.

Emma doesn't share this right away, just keeps reaching through Carina's portals until the wave stops.

(The power she's getting is interesting. Sets her teeth on edge. But it's so much more than she's had, locked in that cell - )

Sean doesn't generally feel fear. He has seen too much to be afraid.

But looking at the destruction the metahumans unleash, the ease at which they fight, makes him want to reach for the buttons on his belt.

She's keeping an eye on him, in case he does, but mostly she's focusing on portals.

Permalink

Bambi is knocked back a few times, but every time she is, the creatures made skin contact with her, and die.

Permalink

Thekla keeps trying to hold them still, but the electricity can only be channelled so far.

Permalink

Luckily the others are very, very good at killing things. 

Permalink

And yet still the things keep coming. 

Thekla channels her powers elsewhere, looking for something- There. A power junction, enough to crack the street, buy them some time. 

"Get back if you can!" She calls, pressing her hands in hard.

Permalink

Everyone can have portals to farther away from the oncoming explosion.

Permalink

And so Thekla unleashes the fullness of her power-

Permalink

The street cracks, like the Earth was falling apart, leaving the creatures stranded on one side, gibbering furiously.

Permalink

To think, he thought she was the least powerful of them.

Permalink

"We should go before they find a way around," Thekla says, standing and shaking off her hands.

Permalink

"Smart. We should also test at some point if you can channel electricity through my portals."

Permalink

"No time like the present?" Thekla gestures at the stranded-for-now creatures.

Permalink

She'll form an experimental portal, then, stretching halfway to the edge of her range. (Which is roughly where she's been pretending the edge of her range is).

Permalink

Instead of reaching through the ground, Thekla closes her eyes and reaches through the portal-

And she can feel the tremblings of something familiar. "It's...almost! Almost like I can reach it!"

Permalink

She'll experiment some with the portal - adjusting the portal itself is hard, but technically possible...

Permalink

Once Thekla focuses her power, every one of the humanoid creatures seizures and falls.

"We're compatible!" Thekla exclaims excitedly to Carina.

Permalink

"Good. This will be quite interesting, then."

Permalink

"We keep moving," Sean orders. 

He stalks off in the direction of the light.

Permalink

"I can help with mobility, you know," she calls, but does walk after him.

Permalink

He says nothing.
