"I would imagine the people in this place would get depressed sometimes. Just look around, there are hardly any window's to let in some light." Liu complains.
"I don't know, but this place creeps me out a bit. We need to hurry up and see what is going on in this place, and get out.
The sound of footsteps can be heard ahead, the two-shalion fighters are quick to hide behind a statue. Kung Lao peaks his head out to get a glimpse. His eyes widen at what he sees. He puts his head back in, looking over at Liu.
"What is it?! Tell me what you saw?!"
"We need to contact batman, it's the knights they're here. They must have taken down the leaders of this palace."
Kung Lao fidgets with the device in his ear, trying to figure out how to work it. After pressing two buttons, the dark knight and Leo are notified. Both Leo and Batman look at statues that are made of clay.
"What is it; did the two of you find something?" Batman asks quietly.
"I don't know if the two of you discovered them, but the invaders are here! You don't have to ask me if I'm sure, I'm positive it's them."
"Good find, but we can't leave just yet. We need to find out why they are here, from what I have seen this castle is ran by citizens. I want you and Liu Kang to stay hidden, and try to locate the main room. Leo and I will do the same, Batman out.
The transition is ended, as Kung Lao turns over to Liu.
"Let's follow them down that hall, but slowly."
Both of them stand up, walking down the hall. A huge door can be seen, with a lot of sound behind it. Both of them walk over, putting an ear up next to it. So that they can hear what is going on.
"Everything seems to be going good, Klenk will be proud!! Our master's dream will finally become a reality."
"So the women of this planet, will be taken back to ours? Or will they be held at our bases, here in this world."
"It depends; they are picked at random where they will go. You need not worry about that, our main focus should be on accomplishing the mission."
Liu and Kung Lao stand there for a bit, listening to them talk back and forth. They are both surprised, as they are pushed into the room. The two of them were to slow to react. From the ground, the shalion fighters look up at the tyrants.
"I found these two spying outside of the door. I'm assuming they've heard a lot and should be dealt with!!"
The group of villains looks down on the two, who try and stay calm. Showing no fear, both shalion monks stand.
"I don't know how the two of you got in here, but this is not acceptable! I want the two of you to follow me."
Kung Lao almost protests, but Liu gives him the look to go along with it. Glass from the ceiling comes crashing in! They all look up to see the caped crusader gliding down. Leonardo comes sliding down a rope. Batman kicks the leader of the group, as he comes down.
"They aren't going anywhere with you! And what have you done to the citizens of this palace?!"
The knight gets up wiping the blood from his mouth while smiling at bats.
"All of the un cooperative beings were killed, as for the others that is strictly private. Both the king and Queen were executed for not following our King's rules."
"I don't know what kind of sick people you are, what is the name that your leader goes by? If he is so great and powerful, why doesn't he do things himself?" Kung Lao asks.
"Our king goes by Klenk, and never speak of him like that again!! I will cut your tongue out and feed it to the mosquitoes! Enough with the questions, the four of you will be disposed of this instant!"
The earth defenders get back to back. Leonardo takes out one of his swords, while Batman pulls out two batarangs. Liu looks down to see he did not come prepared, forgetting his nun chuck. Just as they are about to be attacked, the group of villains are electrified! Liu Kang looks to his side to see Raiden.
"I'm not sure whose rules you're all following, but this is a planet of peace. Is it power what your leader seeks, destroying the lives of innocents is not power! Nor I or the protectors of this planet will let you succeed!"
"Big words old man, but at this point we've already won. Alright gentle men, kill them all." A knight tells.
Raiden performs his torpedo glide, knocking a few of them into a wall. Batman grabs Liu Kang by his wrists swinging him around; he throws the Shalion fighter into the air. While up high, he performs his bicycle kick into the face of a knight. Raiden grabs another one of them shocking the dark warrior. Leonardo turns to Kung Lao, as the two of them fight a group of knights.
"I just have one question, how did you and Liu get discovered?" Leo asks, dodging a speeding blade.
"These guy's caught us off guard; I will make sure that doesn't happen again." Kung Lao replies kicking one of them across the room.
Batman elbows a knight into Raiden's direction who uppercuts him. Liu Kang shoots his dragon fire at a few of them. They are knocked over, but most of them get right back up. The surrounding doors bust open, with more of them pouring in.
"What is this, like two hundred to four?!" Leo says a bit nervous.
Raiden looks around to see them quickly being out numbered. He fires off a few lightning bolts to clear a path.
"All of you grab hold of me!"
Liu Kang and the others jump over the many knights, grabbing hold of Raiden. There all teleported away. The knights look around confused on what happened to them. Raiden and the others re appear in front of a temple. A slight wind blows to the east.
"What is this place?" Leo asks.
"I want the four of you to wait outside here. Inside is the elder gods, I have one last meeting with them. It shouldn't take to long, so I want you all to be patient."
Raiden steps forward entering, with the four of them standing in place. Leonardo spots a huge rock, walking over and sitting on it. Kung Lao sits down next to him, while Liu Kang and Batman stand next to them. They give there devices back to Batman.
"I'm really starting to wonder how many of them there are, we could be in deep trouble. I'm not saying we can't win, there is always a way to come out on top. Things just seem to be getting tougher." Bats tells.
"I think it's time we go after them, from where ever there coming from. The longer we stay here, the more of them continue to come." Kung Lao says.
"That would be dangerous; we would be too out numbered. We need to come up with some sort of plan." Liu Kang tells.
The four of them sit there for over an hour, and when Raiden doesn't show up they begin training with each other. Many hours go by and Raiden finally exits. He comes out to see the four of them meditating. He looks up at the sky to see the sun setting behind the clouds. Raiden speaks bringing them all out of there Transition.
"I'm sorry, but that took much longer than I thought it would. Let's head back to the shalion temple now."
They all get up, as Raiden takes them all back to the shalion temple.
Subzero, Raphael, and Tokie walk around a lake. The three hold maps, as they continue walking toward substantial mountains. Raiden returns with the others into the training room. The room looks the same way they left it. The thunder god leaves them once again, through bright electricity. The four of them head into the back room to get cleaned up. The group takes there time, finishing at about the same time. Bruce throws his bat suit into a washing machine, putting on some clothes. Liu and Kung Lao do the same, and the four of them exit the back room.
"Your suit should be clean within the next thirty minutes." Kung Lao tells.
"No problem, I'll just get it tomorrow I will be turning in early. Leonardo and I will be going to recover his brothers first thing in the morning; I want the two of you to just focus on the invaders."
"How do you know that it isn't them, who have them captive?" Liu asks.
"I don't, but this will be a two man job no questions asked."
Everyone is quite until the entrance to the training room opens, as Spiderman and Naruto enter. Bruce shakes his head realizing the mistake he made.
"What the heck! Bruce Wayne, what is he doing here?! And what happened to Batman?!" Spiderman asks.
He looks around confused, and can see a smile grow on the billionaire's face. Spiderman almost laughs at this.
