Nine Tailed Mutant Legend
CHP 5: The grouping
As the two run at each other, Scorpion teleports himself behind Azun and kicks him in the head. Azun falls into the tall grass. Scorpion pulls out a sword from his sheath. Azun is a little slow to get up. He notices the ninja’s weapon. Thinking quickly, he grabs a blade that belonged to the now burnt Knight. Azun and Scorpion begin sword fighting.
Batman and Naruto come to the front entrance. A huge door blocks them from getting in. Batman pushes on the door, and it opens. Naruto and Batman slowly enter. Up ahead, Young boys of the temple are training. Within moments the two are spotted by the group. Startled and afraid of the two unknown guy’s, the kids run somewhere inside.
“I guess that means they are afraid of us.” Naruto suggests.
“That is only natural that they would be, we have entered there home without permission.” But stay on guard.” Batman says.
“I’m always on guard.” Naruto responds.
The two continue walking. A man wearing a hat comes from inside the temple.
“That is as far as the two of you go.” The man says aloud.
He takes a second to look at the two. He is a bit confused when looking at Batman.
“Why are the two of you here?” The man asks.
Batman takes a few seconds, before explaining. The guy stands there for a moment, debating whether or not he was going to believe this story.
“I’m not the kind of guy to be fooled.” The two of you probably work for the tribe that attacked this village, days ago!” The man yells.
“No you have to trust us, he is telling the truth.” Naruto tries to reason.
The guy takes off his hat and throws it at the two. Both Naruto and Batman duck down, the hat flies around like it is a boomerang. After being air born for a few seconds, the hat returns to its owner.
“You two should not have come here.” The guy says.
“Just one question, who are you?” Naruto asks.
“It really doesn’t matter who I am.” But since you would like to know, I’m Kung Lao.” He answers.
Batman pulls out two batarangs, and throws them at Kung Lao. They explode; Kung Lao is tossed into the air, but lands on his feet. Batman and Kung Lao run at each other, and begin fighting. Batman throws a punch at Kung Lao, which is blocked. Kung Lao uses
the opportunity to knee Batman in the stomach. Batman yells out in pain. Naruto looks up at the full moon, wondering if he will ever see his home again. Kung Lao uppercuts Batman into the air. The Dark Knight catches himself, and glides down to his feet. Kung
Lao runs over and begins fighting him again. Batman grabs one of Kong Lao’s punches and twists his arm. Batman then punches Kung Lao to the ground. Kung Lao is dizzy, but he is quick to get up. Batman and Kung Lao punch each other in the face, at the same time. The next second, they are both shocked by electricity. The two fall to the ground. A huge light of electricity appears before them, and in moments it is gone. A man stands in its place.
“Lord Raiden, these two intruders tried to attack the temple.” Kung Lao tells.
Raiden looks over at Naruto, and then down at Batman.
“Is this true?” The thunder god asks.
Batman gets up off of the ground.
“No it is not, this is all just a big misunderstanding.” Batman replies.
Naruto walks up next to Batman, as he explains to Raiden.
Scorpion’s blade has been split into two pieces. Azun throws his sword to the ground, and begins fighting the ninja specter. Scorpion knife hands Azun on the neck, he then elbows him in the face. Scorpion kicks him high into the air. The ninja pulls out his rope spear, and throws it up. The blade goes right into Azuns shoulder. Scorpion pulls him down, and punches him into a bush. Azun gets up and spits blood, the rope is pulled back by the ninja. Scorpion and Azun stare at each other for a moment.
“Nice moves Lin Kuei fighter.” You seem to be more skilled than even Subzero.” Azun says amazed.
Scorpion just stands there, as a small light rain begins.
“I told you before.” I am not a Lin Kuei fighter!” Scorpion yells.
Azun quickly teleports behind Scorpion, places his hands on Scorpions in an attempt to drain his abilities. Azuns smile is wide, but is short lived. Azun realizes that he is not draining the ninja at all. Scorpion removes Azuns hands from his shoulder; he then turns around to face him.
“You cannot drain life from a dead man.” Scorpion says punching Azun to the ground.
Azun quickly jumps up, and puts space between him and Scorpion. He creates an Ice ball and freezes Scorpion in place. Scorpion quickly breaks out of the ice. Scorpion jumps up to kick Azun, but he is grabbed and thrown to the side. Azun throws smoke bombs to the ground.
“We will meet again ninja.” Azun tells.
When the smoke clears, Scorpion stands alone.
Raiden thinks about the story Batman just told him, as it continues to rain.
“So you must have been in one of the portals that opened over this planet, in the last few hours.” The elder gods brought this to my attention.” Raiden tells.
Batman thinks for a few seconds.
“We only came through one of those portals.” How many have opened over this world?” Batman asks.
Raiden tells the three of them.
“That many, could it be an invasion.” Kung Lao suggests.
Batman tells Raiden about the knights he encountered back on his planet. Naruto tells them about Azuns master’s plan, to take over many different worlds. Raidens face turns serious. He realizes the truth. He explains his sudden appearance at the temple. Raiden came to alert Kung Lao that the knights attacked many civilians, and are heading to the temple. Kung Lao shows a face of fear.
“We must go to them, before they reach this temple.” Batman says.
“So you will help us?” Kung Lao asks.
“Yes, after all they are out to kill anyone who is against there kings rule.” Batman replies.
Raiden directs the three of them to the marching knights. Before leaving the temple, twelve monk warriors join them. They all exit the temple. Raiden returns to the elder gods.
Somewhere by a lake
Princess Kitana sighs, as she breathes in the night air. She looks at the moons reflection in the lake. The princess is amused by the beauty of the night. Suddenly she sees something floating in the water. It looks a lot like a body!! Kitanas heart rate increases. Thinking quickly, she takes off her boots and runs into the lake. She swims up to the body. Right away she identifies him.
“Subzero!!” She says surprised.
She feels his wrist. After a few seconds she can feel his pulse. Kitana pulls him out of the lake, and takes him back to the castle.
A few miles
The group decides to rest for the night. Mikey, Raph, and Donatello went out on a search for fire wood. Leo, Spiderman, and Zatanna sit on the wet grass. Leonardo just sits there, with his legs crossed and eyes closed. Spidey is in his on train of thought.
“I’m cold; I really hope they hurry back.” Zatanna says with her arms over her chest.
Spiderman moves up next to her, and puts his arm around her. Zatannas body heat rises, as she is now nervous.
“I’m sure they will be back really soon.” Spiderman says rubbing his hand on her shoulder.
“Yeah I’m sure they will.” Zatanna says blushing.
About half a mile away the turtles are in a forest. Raphael picks up a few stacks of wood. The three turtles have gathered up all the wood, and are ready to head back. Raphael stops walking and puts the wood down. He turns around to face his brothers.
“Do you get the feeling someone is watching us?” Raphael whispers.
The three of them are silent while listening to the rain drops. But the sound of footsteps can be heard from afar. The turtles pull out there weapons, ready to fight. Darts shoot at the three from all directions. The darts put them to sleep, when it pierces there skin. The turtles fall to the ground unconscious. Donatello catches a glimpse of a woman wearing a purple ninja mask over her mouth, before his eyes close. She approaches the turtles with many others. The huge group looks at the turtles for awhile, confused.
“What are they?” A Tarkada asks aloud.
The woman takes a few seconds to observe the creatures.
“I have no clue, but we will take them with us.” The woman says.
“Yes Mileena.” A Tarkada replies.
The turtles are picked up and tied to nearby horses.
“What would you like us to do now mistress?” A Tarkada asks.
She stands there for a few seconds thinking.
“We shall head back to the temple.” See that the three of them are jailed and questioned, if possible.” Mileena replies.
Mileena then leads the tarkadas back to the temple.
Half a mile away
In the darkness, Spiderman, Leo, and Zatanna sit quietly. Spidey finally takes his arm from around her.
“Hey Leonardo, what do you think is taking your brothers so long?” Spiderman asks.
Leonardo looks up from the ground to face Spidey.
“Knowing them, they might be messing around.” But if they take to long, I’ll go check it out.” Leonardo says.
Spiderman stands up stretching.
“I’m tired of waiting; I’ll go see whats up.” Plus I need the exercise any way.” Spiderman says.
Leo looks up at the wall crawler.
“Ok suit yourself, but do hurry back.” Leo says.
“Of course, be back in a flash.” Spiderman says.
Zatanna looks up as he swings off on his web.
Many minuets pass by; the knights have been spotted by Kung Lao and the group.
“So how are we going to attack these guys?” Just straight forward, or a sneak attack?” Naruto asks.
Kung Lao sticks his finger out, and counts the knights.
“It seems there is about seven of them, and fifteen of us.” I’d say a direct attack.” Kung Lao replies.
Batman looks down at the knights through his binoculars. Batman agrees with Kung Lao.
“After we take them out, we will head back to the Shalion temple.” By time we get back, Raiden should have a plan to stop this invasion.” Kung Lao says.
Batman puts the binoculars back in his utility belt.
“A direct attack it is, but be careful those guys are a bit tougher than they look.” Batman notifies.
The group begins there descent down the hill to confront the knights in black armor. The group is quickly spotted, and the fight begins. Batman throws bat wiring around a knight, and kicks him to the ground. Naruto jumps up high, grabs a knight by his head and throws him into another knight. Kung Lao takes off his hat, and throws it. The blade of the hat goes right into the knight’s head. The knight looses balance and falls. Kung Lao pulls the hat out of the knight’s head and puts it back on. Blood shoots out of his head, and he is dead in seconds. Two monks get there necks snapped while fighting. Naruto trips a knight, but before he can hit the ground, the ninja kicks him up. Batman seeing this acts quickly pulling out a bat bomb and throwing it up. The knight explodes Naruto smiles at the team effort. Kung Lao uppercuts a knight off of a cliff. Within minuets the knights who survived retreat. Kung Lao looks around to see four of there own dead. The group is silent, the rain slowly stops.
“Lets all head back.” Kung Lao breaks the silence.
Sadness can be seen in his face. Batman’s hand meets Kung Lao’s shoulder.
“They didn’t die for no reason, I will see to that.” Batman tells.
Kung Lao’s face brightens a bit. The men begin their journey back, with the bodies of there own.
Spiderman finally returns with fire wood. Leo and Zatanna look at him, and then each other.
“Whats wrong?” Spiderman asks, sounding confused.
He drops the wood on the ground.
“Did you see my brothers at all?” Leo asks with concern in his voice.
“No I didn’t see them, but I found this thing making this ringing sound.” Spiderman says tossing the object to Leo.
Leonardo looks at it for a second.
“This is Raphael’s cell shell!!” I’m going to see if I can get a hold of Don.” Leo says.
Leonardo takes his cell shell out of his belt, he punches in Dons code. It just rings for a little bit, until someone answer’s on the other line. The voice is dark and nasty. Immediately Leo shuts off the cell. He looks up at Spiderman and Zatanna, with worry in his eyes.
“Someone has got my brothers.” Leo says sadly.
“Well let’s go get them back.” Spiderman suggests.
Leonardo stands up facing Spiderman.
“Are cell shells have tracking devices on them, mine is almost out of power.” I will let it charge over night, and we will go after them in the morning.” Leo tells.
“Good idea, plus I need some shut eye.” Spiderman yawns.
Zatanna stands up with a grin on her face.
“What about Batman, have you two forgot about him?” Zatanna almost yells.
“We don’t even know if Batman is on this planet.” Plus like I said before, the guy can handle his own problems.” Lets just all get some sleep.” Spiderman says.
Zatanna roles her eyes and sits back down. Zatanna uses her magic to start the fire on the wood. Spiderman looks down at her; he can see she’s upset.
“Oh I’m sorry, did I say something that hurt you?” Spiderman asks.
Her blue eyes look up at him.
“It’s not you; it’s just the situation we are all in.” She says softly.
Spiderman sits down next to her, but his hand accidentally touches her butt. He pulls his hand away, realizing his mistake. Zatanna blushes and smiles, her body shifts over as she looks at Spiderman. He backs up from her a little bit.
“It was an accident, I didn’t mean to.” Spidey says panicking
She stares at him for a second. She giggles a bit.
“It’s ok; I know you didn’t purposely do it.” Zatanna rubs her hand on Spiderman’s leg.
The hairs on his back go up from her soft touch. Zatanna says her good night to both Leo and Spiderman before lying on her back. Her eyes soon close. Spiderman takes off his mask. Leonardo looks at him.
“So what is your real name?” The turtle asks.
He thinks about it for a second, whether or not to tell the truth.
“I’m Peter Parker.” He answers.
Leonardo sits down, and stairs at the fire.
“I can’t sleep with my mask on; it would be hard to breathe.” Peter tells Leo.
The turtle just smiles. Parker lies on his stomach next to Leo. He rests his head on his arms. He falls asleep shortly afterwards.
Kung Lao and the group enter. Raiden awaits them inside. The dead bodies are carried to a different destination. Kung Lao enters the room, with Batman and Naruto at his side. Raiden begins to speak.
“I got in contact with Jax, Sonya, Kitana, and Johnny Cage.” The four of them, will join the three of you.” This invasion must be stopped.” Raiden tells.
Kung Lao looks a bit confused.
“What about Liu Kang?” Kung Lao asks.
Raiden looks over at Kung Lao.
“He is currently on a mission, but will be back soon.” In the mean time, show these two gentlemen to a room.” Raiden says.
Kung Lao bows, the two then follow him. They travel up many sets of stairs, with lit candles on the wall. After awhile of walking, they come to two rooms, across from each other. Kung Lao unlocks both doors. Naruto looks over at Batman.
“I’ll see you tomorrow.” Naruto says.
Batman replies by saying good night. Naruto enters the room, and closes the door behind him. Batman looks straight at Kung Lao.
“Thank you; we appreciate you giving us room in your home.” I understand that you probably don’t trust us fully, which is understandable.” I just have one favor to ask?” Batman says.
“Ok… What?” Kung Lao replies.
“Do you have any normal clothes I can wear?” I only wear this while fighting criminals, Etc.” Batman explains.
Kung Lao forms half smile.
“I’ll go get you a few things that will last you a few days.” Kung Lao responds.
“Thanks, greatly appreciated.” Batman says in his Bruce Wayne tone.
Kung Lao walks down the hall. Batman enters his room, and kicks the door shut behind him. First thing he takes off is the cape and cowl. He then undresses until he is down to his boxer shorts. Bruce just sits on the edge of the bed thinking.
Across the hall, Naruto lays in a bed. He looks up at the ceiling until his eyes clothes, and he falls asleep.

Nine tailed Mutant Legend
CHP6: A search
The sun rises over the shalion temple. Bruce Wayne pushes himself up; he stretches as he gets out of the bed. He opens the nearby curtains, to let in some light. He walks over to the door that leads to the hallway, and opens it. On the ground, lays a basket filled with clothes. He smiles picking up the basket, and shuts the door. After getting dressed, he heads down the many stairs to get to the main floor. Kung Lao sits in the kitchen, eating eggs, Bacon and a glass of orange juice. Bruce enters the kitchen wearing a gray sweater with blue jeans and white shoes. Kung Lao looks up at him.
“I had no idea you looked like that, without the cape and cowl.” I figured you were a man last night, so what is your real name?” Kung Lao asks.
Bruce walks over to the table Kung Lao sits at.
“My name is Bruce.” Thanks again for letting us stay the night in your home.” Bruce says.
“Don’t thank me, it was Raiden’s idea.” I do have a question for you.” Kung Lao says.
“Ok, you can ask anything.” Bruce replies.
“What is the story behind the bat suit?” I just want to know why you even wear it.” It seems a bit pointless.” Kung Lao asks.
Bruce just sits there, trying to think what to say. His heart sinks a bit, at the memory when it all began, the death of his parents. The two shots that have haunted him, since that dreadful night. Bruce looks away from Kung Lao, with sadness in his face.
“That’s really not a happy topic for me.” Bruce finally replies.
Kung Lao can hear the sadness in his voice.
“I’m sorry I asked.” Tragedy is never a good.” Kung Lao says.
Bruce walks over to a dish sitting on the counter top, and pulls an apple out of it.
“Do you mind if I have one?” Bruce asks.
“Not at all, go ahead.” Kung Lao replies.
Bruce washes the apple off, before taking a bite into it.
On a field
Peters eyes open, he feels by his side for his mask. But it is not there, he pushes himself up onto his knees. The sun shines bright. He looks around on the ground, but does not see it anywhere. Zatanna walks over to Peter, waving something in his face.
“Is this what you’re looking for, huh Petey?” Zatanna asks with a giggle.
Peter looks up at her.
“Hey give it back; I need that to conceal my identity.” Peter demands.
Peter thinks to himself, realizing he never told her his name.
“Hey Zatan, or whatever your name is.” How do you know my name?” Peter asks.
Zatanna looks down at him with a frown.
“My name is Zatanna, but you can call me Zee.” Leo told me your name before he left to find us breakfast.” Zatanna replies.
“Ok Zee, can I have my mask back please?” Peter asks nicely.
“You can have it back, if you catch me!” Zatanna says about to run.
Spiderman quickly grabs her by one of her legs, and pulls back. Zatanna falls right on top of him. Her hat falls on the ground. The two are chest to chest. Peter panics a bit, as Zatanna sits up on him. What she does next surprises the wall crawler. She places her hands on his chest, rubbing the spider symbol.
“We should make love to each other, right now.” Zatanna says, putting one of her hands on Peter’s face.
Peter’s eyes widen, and his heart moves fast. He attempts to say something, but stops. Zatanna laughs as she gets off of him.
“I was just kidding; I wanted to see your reaction.” You’re a good boy.” Zatanna tosses his mask to him.
She picks up her hat and puts it back on. She looks down at him, as he sits up.
“I didn’t know you were so cute behind the mask.” Zatanna says.
Peter blushes at her sweet comment.
“Thanks.” You are very beautiful.” Peter replies.
“Your good looking, but I find Batman to be even more attractive under that cowl.” Zatanna says with glowing eyes.
Spidy looks at her confused.
“About that, who is Batman behind the mask?” Are the two of you dating?” Spiderman asks.
“Why so interested?” To answer your question, he does not seem to let any woman close.” We are not seeing each other.” If you really want to know his identity, just ask him the next time you see him.” Zatanna replies.
Peter puts his mask back on. Zatanna walks over to a nearby tree, to sit under it. The two sit in silence waiting for Leonardo to return.
Naruto enters the kitchen to see Bruce eating an apple, and Kung Lao washing his plate in the sink.
“What are you two doing?” Do any of you have a clue when the others will get here?” Naruto asks.
Bruce continues to eat his apple, Kung Lao finishes washing his plate and turns to face Naruto.
“They should all be here in less than thirty minutes.” Kung Lao tells.
Outside of the Leaf Village
Kakashi stands on a field, surrounded by twenty knights.
“Surrender Kakashi, you are out numbered.” One knight yells.
Kakashi just smiles at his words. He runs over and begins fighting the Knights. He forms the Chidori taking down a few knights with its power. One knight throws a punch at Kakashi, he grabs it. With much strength he rips the arm off.
“You’re a dead man Kakashi!!” A knight yells.
The knight picks Kakashi up by his neck, and throws him into the ground. A few knights stomp on him for awhile. He falls unconscious.
“One of you pick this joke up, we will take him back to the village.” Make sure to put him with the rest of the prisoners.” A knight picks up Kakashi, and throws him over his shoulder.
The knights arrive at the prison quickly. Tsunade, Sakura, Shizune, and many others are in jail cells. Force fields are what hold them in. A knight throws Kakashi into a cell; he pulls out a remote and presses a button. A force field appears around Kakashi’s cage.
“What have you done to him?!!” You better hope he is alive, or when I get out of here you will all be dead!” Sakura yells, punching at the force field.
A knight turns to Sakura with a smile.
“Silly child, you are nothing to us.” You better watch what comes out of your mouth; it might get you in trouble.” A knight replies.
Sakura doesn’t say a thing, she just sits down.
“I have a question for you all.” Why did you pick this peaceful village to invade?” Tsunade snaps at them.
A knight smiles at her anger.
“Who says we were just taking over this village.” This entire planet will be under our full control, in no time.” It must hurt to know you can’t do a thing about it.” A knight says.
All knights in the room exit. A few seconds go by, before anyone speaks.
“Hey Tsunade, are you able to use any of your jutsu’s?” Shizune asks.
“No I cannot, this is all very strange.” Tsunade answers.
“Same with me, I can’t perform any either.” Maybe it has something to do with these force fields.” Sakura suggests.
“If that is true, than we need to try and figure another way out of this place.” Shizune tells.
Shikamaru sits back in his cell, listening to them talk back and forth.
Back at the
Kung Lao, Naruto, and Bruce, sit at the kitchen table talking. Raiden appears in front of the three, in bright electricity.
“I’m just letting the three of you know, that the others have just entered the temple.” All except Kitana, she is taking care of a small problem.” Raiden tells.
“Thanks for letting us know.” We will go out and greet them.” Bruce says.
“I have something to do, but I will see you all shortly.” Raiden says.
Raiden disappears with electricity. Bruce, Kung Lao, and Naruto get up from the table. The three exit the room, and head outside. Approaching them is Jax, Johnny Cage, and Sonya. Kung Lao introduces Bruce and Naruto to the three.
“So where do the two of you come from?” I have never seen either of you before.” Sonya asks.
Both Naruto and Bruce are silent.
“It’s a long story, we can tell you about it later.” Naruto replies.
“Yeah, trust me Sonya you will find it hard to believe at first.” We should discuss a plan, to stop this invasion.” Kung Lao tells.
“I sure do hope Liu hurries back.” Something tells me, that we are going to need him.” Johnny Cage says.
“That might be true, but we can’t always rely on him.” We will do this ourselves.” Kung Lao says.
“I’ve never met this Liu Kang person, but I’m sure we will do just fine without him.” Bruce adds.
“The two of you should stay here at the temple.” Things can get very brutal.” Jax says to Bruce and Naruto.
The leaf village ninja laughs at Jax’s suggestion.
“You haven’t seen us in action yet, we will be a big contribution.” Naruto says.
“This kid might be young, but he’s a good fighter.” So is this man, the two of them will come with us.” Kung Lao adds.
Jax looks down at Naruto.
“How old are you kid?” Jax asks.
“What does my age have to do with anything?” Since you would like to know, I’m 16.” Naruto replies.
“There is no reason, I was just curious.” Jax replies.
Just then, a portal opens over the Shalion temple. Many Knights come out of it. It closes after a few moments.
“What the devil is this, what are they doing here!” Johnny yells.
“One of them must have followed us back here, last night.” Kung Lao guesses.
“I guess we have no choice but to fight them now.” Johnny says.
“So you must be the earth realm heroes of this world?” A knight in the front asks.
Kung Lao steps forward, putting himself in front of everyone.
“Yes we are, what is it that you want from this planet?” Kung Lao asks.
“We want the most powerful fighters dead, leaving no one to stop us from taking full control.” A Knight replies.
Naruto steps forward, putting himself next to Kung Lao.
“That’s not going to happen pal; you’ll have to go through us!” Naruto yells.
All knights in the group seem to be surprised. They take a second to look at the blond haired boy.
“It can’t be!!” Are you Naruto Uzumaki?” A knight asks.
“Of course I am.” You guys seem surprised that I’m still alive.” I guess your king really wants me dead.” Naruto replies.
“I was sure the other squad disposed of you.” No matter, you will be added on as an extra bonus.” The knight says.
The knights pull out there weapons, ready to attack the fighters. Bruce takes this second to run. Kung Lao and the others look at him as he runs off, confused.
“Good fighter my butt.” He is a coward.” Sonya complains.
“Trust me Sonya, not even I expected that.” Kung Lao replies.
The knights begin there attack on them.
Jax punches into the ground, its force cause a few knight to fall.
“I’ll take the one with the metal arms.” A knight says.
Jax pulls his arm out of the ground, only to be kicked into a statue. One knight throws a kick at Naruto who grabs it. The ninja begins spinning the knight around, hitting other knight in his path. He eventually throws him into three knights.
“Good work Naruto, I didn’t expect that.” Johnny says.
Johnny jumps over a knight, grabbing his head at the same time. He throws the knight into the ground. Another knight runs at him fast, he shoots a Plasmic Fireball at him. The knight knocks the blast out of the way, and begins fighting Cage. Kung Lao and Sonya fight the knights off, back to back. Sonya uppercuts a knight, pulls her gun out and shoots him in the head. Three knights punch Kung Lao in the face at the same time, knocking him out.
“Hold on Sonya, I will be right over to help.” Naruto says.
Before Naruto can get to Sonya, he is surrounded by a group of knights. They begin fighting him. A knight grabs him by his hair and punches him in the face. Naruto goes crashing into a wall. Jax is tied to a statue as knights beat on him. Johnny seems to have the upper hand, over his group. He takes a sword from them, and slashes the knights surrounding him.
“I hope Raiden shows up soon.” We need some real backup.” Johnny says.
“You got that right; these groups of knights are more powerful than the last.” Naruto says, kicking a knight into a nearby fountain. A few minutes pass.
A Knight grabs Sonya by her pony tail and knees her in the back. She yells out in pain, as she is thrown to the ground. Johnny runs over to help her, but is picked up by his neck and leg. The knight throws him into Naruto. Just then two bat objects come fast out of nowhere. They end up in the head of a knight. He falls to the ground. All knights stop fighting, and look up to see Batman gliding down.
“Oh thank goodness, it’s Batman.” I knew he wouldn’t abandon us.” Naruto says in excitement.
Batman hits the ground, and knocks over a few knights. He pulls Sonya to her feet. She takes a second to look at him.
“Who are you?” Sonya asks.
“I don’t usually share my identity with anyone, but in this case I will.” It’s me Bruce, or you can call me Batman.” He tells.
“I’m glad you came back to help.” Sonya says.
Batman does not reply, he runs over to fight off the knights attacking Jax. Sonya continues fighting, and so does everyone else. Naruto creates a few clones, and delivers a few combos on a knight. Batman throws a bat bomb to Johnny Cage, who places it on a knight. The bomb blows one of the knight’s arms off. After a few more minutes of fighting, the knights decide to retreat. Batman walks over and picks up Kung Lao.
“Everyone follow me, I’m going to lay him inside where it is cool.” It won’t be the best idea to leave until he is awake.” Batman says.
Everyone follows Batman inside. He sets Kung Lao down on a couch. Johnny puts a cold rag over his head.
Inside a dungeon
Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo have awakened.
“Man my head hurts, what the shell is going on?” Raphael asks.
“If I can remember we were looking for fire wood and than we were ambushed.” Dony says.
“Yeah your right, someone is going to be hurting when I get my hands on them!” Raphael says in anger.
“We should be trying to figure out how to get out of this place.” I don’t know about you guys, but this is no where close to being home.” Michelangelo says.
The three of them feel around, to see that there weapons had been taken away. A nearby door opens, and Mileena enters with two Tarkada’s. Raphael gets up to try and attack the three, but the jail bars electrify him. He falls to his back. He quickly gets back up.
“I want some answers now, why the shell are we here?” Raphael asks.
“Fascinating, so you can all speak?” What kind of creatures are you?” Mileena asks.
“I’ll be asking the questions, you will answer.” Raphael says.
Mileena laughs at his words.
“You don’t seem to be in the position to question me.” Mileena says.
“She’s got a point Raph.” So what is it you really want to know, besides the fact that we are not from this planet?” Mikey asks.
“I see, you must be the smart one.” I would like to know what you are, and how you got here.” Mileena demands.
The turtles are silent for a bit, they don’t talk for a while.
“If we tell you what you want, will you let us go?” Donatello asks.
“Yes of course, you have my word.” Mileena promises.
Raphael jumps up.
“I don’t think so!!” Just look at her Don, she is lying.” We’ve dealt with people like you many times.” The answer is no, so get lost.” Raphael says.
Mileena drops her hair down.
“I will give the three of you time to talk it over, and when you want to get out of here, just let me know.” Mileena says.
She signals the Tarkada’s to exit along with her.
“It always seems to be the pretty girls who are evil.” Raph says.
“You can say that again.” So Don, what’s the plan to get us out of here?” Mikey asks.
“I’m still figuring that one out.” Dony replies.
In a castle
Subzero’s eyes open, he feels his face to see that his mask is gone. His head rests on a pillow; he looks around to see that he is lying in a bed. Subzero tries to sit up, but feels dizzy and lays back down. A nearby door opens, and a familiar woman enters. Kitana sits on the side of the bed next to him.
“How are feeling?” I found you unconscious in a lake.” Kitana asks.
She hands him a cup of tea. He takes the cup, looking into her eyes. He takes a sip, not saying a thing.
“So are you going to tell me who did this to you?” Kitana asks.
She moves up closer to him. Subzero sets the cup to the side of the bed, looking up at her.
“I don’t know who the guy was.” He drained me of my abilities; I believe he got most of his strength, from fighters all over the universe.” He does not come from this planet.” Subzero tells.
“He drained you of your abilities?!!” We will meet up with the others, as soon as you rest up for awhile.” Kitana says.
She rubs her hand against his leg. He grunts at this action, and she removes her hand.
“I don’t even know if I will regain my abilities.” It seems as though he was draining the life out of me.” Subzero says.
“There is a chance you will get them back right?” Kitana asks.
“Yes there is.” Subzero replies.
Kitana gets up and exits the room, giving Subzero time to rest.
On a field
Spiderman finishes eating, while Leonardo and Zatanna sit waiting.
“Alright I’m finished now; let’s go after your brothers.” Spiderman says.
“Yeah about that, it seems my charger has been damaged.” We won’t be able to trace there destination.” Leo tells.
Behind his mask, Peter has a confused face.
“Ok.” Now what are we supposed to do, we are like in the middle of nowhere.” Spiderman says in frustration.
Zatanna stands on her feet with half a smile.
“I think my magic might be able to tell us where they are.” Just give me a second.” Zatanna says.
She pulls out a wand, and has Leonardo and Spiderman step to the side. She stands in front of the fire wood. She chants a lot of words backwards.
“I wonder what she is saying.” Spiderman says to Leo in a whisper.
“I don’t know, but hopefully it will work.” Leonardo replies.
The two look at Zatanna who seems to be in a deep train of thought. They sit there for about a minute, before Zatanna’s eyes open. She turns to the two.
“I could see them; they are locked up in some kind of prison.” But I don’t know the directions.” Not just that, but I saw Batman and Naruto in some kind of temple.” Zatanna says in much relief.
“Well at least we know they are alive, we won’t find anyone just sitting around here.” Let’s see if we can find either group.” Spiderman says.
“Good idea, but I’ll lead the way.” Leonardo replies.
“Ok Sparky lets do it.” Spidy says.
Leonardo looks over at Spiderman with a frown. Zatanna just shakes her head.
“I was just messing, come on let’s not waste anymore time.” Spiderman says.
The three begin walking further into the field.

Nine Tailed Mutant Legend
CHP7: Champion appears
Over thirty minutes pass, and Kung Lao’s eyes open. He takes the rag off of his head and sits up. Standing in front of him is Raiden. He looks around to see no one else.
“Don’t worry about the others.” I have taken them to where a group of the invaders will strike next.” Raiden tells.
Kung Lao almost jumps out of the couch! But falls back, knowing he has a headache.
“Right now I suggest you rest.” It will be hard for you to help the others in your condition.” Raiden says.
Kung Lao looks up at Raiden as if to say something. The shalion warrior does not speak, but lays back down.
Inside of a forest, the knights walk side by side chatting. Johnny Cage and the group are not to far ahead, watching the knights get closer hidden. Naruto hides in a bush close to Jax who is behind a tree. Batman looks down at the knights with his binoculars. Sonya gets on her knees next to him, and takes the binoculars out of his hands.
“I want to have a look at how many we will be dealing with.” All these trees around should give us an edge over them.” Sonya whispers.
Batman takes the binoculars from her and puts them back in his utility belt.
“Since we still have some more time, how about you tell me about yourself?” Batman asks her.
She looks down at the ground to see dead leafs. She messes with them, giving her some time to think. She lets out a gasp turning to face him, but he speaks before she can completely face him.
“If you feel uncomfortable, I understand.” It was just an idea to burn some time off.” Batman says.
Sonya stands up, dusting the dirt off of her pants. She looks down at Batman, who looks up at her.
“I’ll tell you another time, after all we just met.” After I know and trust you a bit more we can talk.” Sonya says walking away.
He looks at her as she walks off. His attention is again taken back to the knights. Digging in his utility belt, he pulls out the binoculars again. Naruto makes his way out of the bush; he spots Johnny Cage who is sitting on a tree stump. Naruto decides to go over and talk with him. Sonya sits down next to Jax.
“It would have been a good idea if we had brought the weapons.” When Raiden said an invasion, I had no idea they would be in these huge numbers.” Sonya says.
“The word invasion should be enough to tell you that it is a large group.” Those guys’s are definitely stronger than the average human.” Jax says.
Sonya takes a bag off of her back and opens it. She pulls out a bottle filled with water, offering Jax some. He declines, resting his head on the tree. She drinks a little of it herself. Johnny and Naruto are well hidden like the others, behind trees and bushes.
“My goal is to become Hokage one day.” It’s not an easy goal to reach, but I will.” I consider myself one of the best ninjas from the leaf village.” Naruto tells.
Johnny sits there and listens to Naruto tell him a little bit about his life story.
“It must have been hard for you, when you were a little boy.” No friends and people who feared you.” It sounds like it was a nightmare.” Johnny replies expressing his interest.
“So how did you get into the movie business?” We don’t have that kind of stuff back where I come from.” Naruto asks.
Johnny smiles thinking to himself.
“It was something that just happened, it wasn’t really planned.” Johnny answers.
Batman’s voice can be heard, as he calls everyone over. They all make there way over to the dark knight.
“The enemies are close enough now; it’s time that we attack them.” Things will work more smoothly if one of us goes out there and confronts them alone.” After they are off guard, the rest of us will come in and take them out.” I have one question, who would like to be the one?” Batman asks.
Naruto looks down at Batman, a bit confused.
“Are you asking which one of us is going to be the bate?!” Naruto asks.
Batman looks over at Naruto, almost smiling.
“Yes that is what I am asking.” Batman replies.
“I’m up for it, but make sure you guy’s are quick to jump in.” Naruto tells.
“Good, I will tell you all how we are going to do this.” Batman says.
Everyone moves in closer to hear Batman explain. Over two minutes pass and the knights are even closer. Naruto comes from behind a tree, standing in the way of there path. A knight in the front pulls out a sword.
“What are you doing all alone in here kid?” Shouldn’t you be with your mommy or something?” The knight asks.
His surrounding friends laugh at his words. Naruto’s fist tightens at this.
“You’re going to wish you didn’t say that!” I’m going to take you all down myself.” Naruto says, smiling.
Giggles and laughs can be heard throughout the group of knights.
“You stupid fool, just go home or you will be killed.” I don’t have time for pathetic people like you, who don’t matter.” The knight demands.
Naruto quickly creates over ten clones. The knights in front of him all of a sudden get serious. Two of the clones create the rasengan in his hand.
“I’d say the odds are even now.” Naruto says.
The knights run over to attack the leaf village ninja. He slams the rasengan into the chest of an approaching knight. Naruto and his clones pull out shurikens and throw them at the enemies. Three clones kick into a knight at the same time, sending him head first to the ground. A batarang comes out of nowhere and hits a few knights in the head. Batman joins in kicking and punching two knights to the ground. He pulls out his grapple gun and shoots it. The bat wiring wraps around a knights neck, so Batman pulls back on it bringing him to the ground.
“Nice move Batman!” Naruto yells over.
Batman puts the grapple gun back in his utility belt. Jax comes from behind a tree and punches a knight high into the air. The knight lands on his feet. A knight comes from behind Batman and grabs him by his neck
“Lets see you get out of this one you bat freak.” The knight says with a tight hold on his throat.
The knight throws Batman to the ground and grabs him by his cape. He swings him around throwing him into a tree branch high up. Batman manages to get his fingers on the branch, not falling. He jumps down from the tree gliding.
“I don’t know why you came here boy.” It doesn’t make since that you chose to come out here and die.” You had a whole life to live.” A knight says grabbing Naruto by his hair.
He throws him to the ground stomping on him a few times. Sonya comes from behind and leg grabs the knight throwing him to the ground and snapping his neck. She gets up and puts her hand out, helping Naruto to his feet.
“Thanks a lot for the help Sonya.” Naruto says relieved.
“Don’t mention it.” Sonya says with half a smile.
The two head in separate directions to attack the other knights. Johnny finally joins in. He jumps over a knight kicking him in the head at the same time. The knight falls into a puddle of mud. Batman makes his way over to Cage, and the two fights off the knights. Jax grabs a knight by his head and slams his head into the ground. The knights head busts open, with blood all over the ground. Jax throws a punch at a knight who grabs it and picks him up. He throws Jax high into the air. He almost falls into Batman and Johnny, but the two moves and he falls into four knights. Batman and Johnny knock down the knights, and help Jax up.
“I hope these guys’s are planning on giving up soon.” Jax says.
Johnny wipes the sweat from his head, as the four knights get up. Batman jumps into the air and kicks one of them back down. He slices into another knight’s chest with the blades on his gauntlets. He grabs the knight by his head and knees him in the face, and then elbows him in the back of the head. The knight falls to the ground knocked out. The remaining two knights look at Batman, as he uppercuts one of them into a nearby tree.
“****, this guy is good.” Jax says shaking his head a little bit.
He and Johnny join in, as the other knight gets back off of the ground. Naruto grabs a knight by his leg and swings him around for a bit before throwing him into the air. Thinking quickly he grabs Sonya by her waist and throws her up. While in the air she bicycle kicks the knight up even further. He falls into a nearby lake. She lands on her feet. She turns to Naruto.
“How did you know I was going to do anything?” Sonya asks.
“I didn’t, I just assumed you would think of something.” Naruto replies.
Sonya smiles at his answer. A few knights surround Naruto and Sonya, the two get back to back. All of Naruto’s clones have been destroyed. The knight’s jump in to attack the two, but someone jumps out of no where and takes a few of them down. Sonya and Naruto turn to see who the person is. Sonya is surprised to see the familiar face!!
“Oh thank goodness you’re here Liu.” Sonya says.
Liu jumps over and twists a knight’s arm and round house kicks him to the ground.
“I got here as soon as I heard.” Raiden hasn’t explained the details to me fully yet.” Liu Kang says.
“We can give you a full update once we take all these guys out.” My name is Naruto.” He introduces himself.
Both Liu Kang and Naruto shake hands. After doing so, the three head over to help Batman and the others. The group fights the knights for a little while longer, before finally defeating them. Batman gathers up all the unconscious knights and ties them all to a tree. He then turns to Jax, Sonya, Liu, and Johnny.
“Do you have a police force in this world, which can pick them up and take them in for questioning?” Batman asks.
“Yes of course, in fact Jax and I are a part of it.” I will call in someone to pick these guy’s up.” Sonya replies.
Liu Kang and everyone head back to the Shalion temple.
Outside of the sand village miles away, seven knights stand against one person.
“We finally meet Sasuke Uchiha.” To bad it had to be under such bad terms.” A knight yells across the field.
Sasuke pulls his sword out and stares back at the knight’s.
“Obviously you fools do not know who I am.” It’s too late for any of you to turn and run now, I’m going to kill you all.” Sasuke tells.
Sasuke’s eyes close for a second and then open again to display a new set of eyes.
“What happened to his eyes chief?” A knight asks the leader of the group.
“What we are seeing right now is called the Mangekyo Sharingan!” Take a good look, because it will be your last once we take him out.” The knight says.
The knights run clear across the field and surround Sasuke, who smiles. He zooms over and begins sword fighting with a few of them. He jumps over a knight slicing his head off. Blood shoots out everywhere; Sasuke kicks his carcass to the ground. A knight shoves his sword into the back of Sasuke’s shoulder, making him yell out in pain. He pulls the sword out of him and backs up. Sasuke turns to the knight who injured him, only to be knocked over by another knight.
“Stay down Sasuke, are boss will take you dead or alive.” Don’t make us have to do this the hard way.” A knight suggest to him.
Sasuke sits up to look up at the knights.
“What does this boss of yours want from me?” Sasuke asks.
“He wants your abilities.” Which include your Mangekyo Sharingan and your ability to use the chidori.” A knight tells.
Sasuke gets off of the ground with his sword in hand.
“Do I look stupid to you, after he is done with me I’m a dead man.” Sasuke replies.
“It’s either that, or you can die right now.” Another knight replies.
Sasuke jumps back and uses the fire breathing jutsu. A few of them catch on fire, given this chance he swings his sword and slices into them. One hand holds the sword, and he places his other hand over his bleeding shoulder.
“This is just a waste of my time.” If your boss wants me so bad, have him come get me himself.” Sasuke says.
With those words Sasuke begins to run from the knights.
“Don’t let him get away you idiots.” Go after him right now!” The leader of the group demands!
The injured knights are on the ground rolling around trying to put out the fire. They get the fire out within seconds. When they look up, Sasuke is no where to be seen.
“This is unacceptable.” We must find him.” The group leader says.
“Yes we will, but I say we rest up for the day.” We can try and find him tomorrow.” A knight suggests.
“I guess we can do that, but we will search for him first thing tomorrow.” The leading knight replies.
Leonardo and Zatanna sit under a tree. Spiderman jumps out of the tree with three apples in his hand.
“Do you guys want one?” Spiderman asks nicely.
Both Zatanna and Leo accept and take an apple. Spidy pulls his mask up a bit so he can eat the apple.
“Man it sure is hot out here.” I’m starting to think we aren’t going to find any of them.” We should have held hands when we entered the portal that would have helped a little bit.” Spiderman says taking a bite into his apple.
Leo and Zee are quite not saying anything. Leonardo plays with the grass, pulling a few pieces out of the ground. Zatanna uses her magic to get rid of the skin on her apple and begins eating it.
“This situation would have been much better, if we had been back on our home planet.” We would have probably found them by now.” Leo says.
He throws his apple up into the air and cuts it into two pieces and catches them. Spidy looks up at the sky as he continues to chew.
“It is so hot out here; I wish there were a pool of water around.” I would go in it with nothing on.” Zatanna says.
Spiderman almost chocks on his apple. He thinks of her naked in a lake and smiles. He realizes his thoughts and shakes his head.
“Come on Spidy, you can’t think like that.” You already have a girlfriend.” Spidy says to himself, getting the image out of his head.
The three of them sit there in silence for another few minutes. Spiderman finishes his apple and pulls his mask back down. He then stands to his feet.
“I think we’ve had a long enough break.” Are you guys ready to continue looking for them?” Spiderman asks.
Zatanna and Leonardo look up at Spidy who seems to have a lot of energy.
“Why don’t you just sit down, there is no rush.” We can rest up a bit longer.” Zee says.
Spiderman sits back down next to the two.
In a dungeon
Raphael, Don, and Mikey sit in there jail cell with there plan to get out.
“As soon as one of the Tarkatan fighters comes back, the first part of the plan will begin.” Remember guys, don’t sound too desperate.” Donatello says.
“I just hope after we do this, those guys aren’t smart enough to figure out to fast that they have been tricked.” Raphael adds.
“I’m confident that it will work just fine.” Dony says.
“I hope you are right about this Don.” If we are here too much longer without talking, we are going to become turtle soup.” Mikey says.
The turtles sit in there cell silent, waiting for a Tarkatan to show up. Mikey looks up at the clock as time seems to be going slow. Sweat drops from the anxious turtles head.
“What is taking them so long?” One of those Tarkatan dudes should have made his round to our cell by now.” Mikey complains.
“Have patience Mikey, they will be here.” Dony says.
The turtles wait another ten minutes before a Tarkatan enters. He approaches there cell.
“Are any of you freaks ready to talk?” The Tarkatan asks.
“We will tell you anything you want to know.” But first we would like some paper and paints?” Dony asks.
The Tarkatan laughs loud at the turtles. It takes him a few seconds to calm back down.
“Why do you want those objects?” Are you going to try and paint your way out?” The Tarkatan laughs again.
Raphael jumps up in anger.
“Listen pal, if pretty Mileena wants answers, give us what we want!” Raphael says.
The Tarkatan clears his throat.
“Ok, you will get your paint and paper.” But you will talk and give us answers.” The Tarkatan says.
He exits the room. Raphael sits back down, next to his brothers.
“Somehow I think this plan might just work!” Raphael says, with hope in his eyes.
“Let’s hope so, because as soon as we get out of here, we need to go and meet up with the others.” Michelangelo says.
Kung Lao, Jax, and Naruto sit at a table.
“I think we need to find out who is sending these knights’s.” We aren’t going to stop them unless we stop the source.” Kung Lao says, slamming his fist on the table.
Naruto sits back, taking another sip of his ice water.
“I couldn’t agree with you more.” The problem is finding out where they are all coming from.” Jax replies.
“Can’t Raiden trace them back, from where they came?” Naruto asks.
Kung Lao sits back and thinks about the question for a second. Jax looks over at Johnny and Sonya who sit in a nearby couch.
“You know Naruto; he might just be able to do that.” When he returns to the temple, I will inform him.” Either him or the elder gods can help us with this.” Kung Lao answers.
Sonya gets off of the couch, and makes her way into the training room. She gets inside to see Liu Kang and Bruce Wayne training. Sonya sits down in a chair and watches them. Bruce punches on a sand bag, while Liu is lifting weights.
“How can these two be training after the big fight earlier?” You would think they would be resting.” Sonya says to herself.
Sonya walks over to ask Liu a question, but spots the many scars on Bruce’s back. It catches her attention, so she walks over to him. She taps him on his shoulder to get his attention. He immediately stops punching, and turns around to face her.
“Oh hey Sonya, how can I help you?” Bruce asks.
“I just noticed the bruises on your back.” What is it you do again?” Sonya asks, looking confused.
Bruce laughs a little at her expression.
“I am a crime fighter, back where I come from.” Well it is my night job; I’m actually a vigilante hero.” I don’t get paid to do it.” Bruce tells.
“Sounds like you’re a very heroic man.” So does each bruise or scar tell a story?” Sonya asks.
“Yes, I guess they would.” Bruce replies scratching his head.
Sonya places her hand on his chest, moving it upward to feel the many injuries. Bruce tense’s up at her light touch. She stops after a few seconds.
“I didn’t mean to disrupt your training session, you can continue now.” We can talk later.” Sonya says.
She makes her way over to Liu Kang. Bruce turns around and continues to beat on the sand bag.

Nine Tailed Mutant Legend
Raphael stands in a corner of the jail cell, waiting for the Tarkatan to return. Michelangelo stands up, and walks over to look outside through the bard window. He can see birds flying freely outside, he gasps at this. Donatello sits on the cold cement floor with his legs crossed. The Tarkatan re enters with papers, and different colors of paint. He opens the door to there jail cell, and sets the stuff down. Quickly he steps back and locks up the cell. The Tarkatan looks down at Donatello.
“This is what you all wanted? I will be right back; I’m going to let lady Mileena know that the three of you are ready to talk.” He says making his way to the door.
Donatello jumps up yelling, getting his attention. The Tarkatan turns from the door to face the turtle.
“Don’t bring her in, until another thirty minutes. We are going to make something for her.” Donatello says smiling.
Raphael smirks while leaning up against a wall. The Tarkatan shakes his head with a face of disbelief.
“If I find out that the three of you are tricking us, I will eliminate you myself. You have twenty minutes, whatever your doing had better be done by than.” The Tarkatan tells.
Mikey makes his way from the window, walking until he is next to Don.
“Don’t worry dude, will have this little project done in no time. You should leave now, the longer you stay we won’t get anything done.” Mikey says.
The Tarkatan grins leaving the room. The turtles are quite, listening to his foot steps fade away. Raphael breaks the silence amongst them.
“I think he bought it, let’s just hope it fools them long enough.” Raphael says.
Leonard and Spiderman walk through a lot of sand. Spidy carries Zatanna on his back.
“This is kind of ridiculous; I just wish we knew where they were.” Spiderman complains.
Zatanna climbs down from his back.
“You don’t have to carry me anymore. Walking in high heels after awhile can get uncomfortable.” Zatanna tells.
The three continue to walk, as a smoke bomb comes out of nowhere exploding in front of the three. Leo and Spiderman react quick, jumping out of the way. The bombs gas knocks out Zatanna who falls to the ground. Leonardo pulls out his two Kitana swords, both he and Spidy stand close together. They are surrounded by knights who come from behind the bushes and trees.
“I don’t know who you’re supposed to be, but we want the turtle. So either you back off, or you will be taken in as well.” The knight tells.
Spiderman answers by webbing his arms together. He then pulls him down to the ground. Leonardo jumps in and slashes a few knights with the tip of his blade. Spidy webs one of them by his chest and swings him around. He throws his enemy into the surrounding knights.
“You guys obviously haven’t heard of me. I’m Spiderman, your boss should have did better research.” Spiderman says.
Spidy picks up one of the knights and throws him into the air. The knight is electrified before he hits the ground. The surrounding knights are also electrified. Spiderman and Leonardo turn around to see a man covered in electricity. The knights get up and run, with Leo and Spidy staring at the man who walks up to them. Spiderman places his hand up.
“Stop right there pal. Who are you supposed to be?” He asks.
“I’m Raiden, known as the thunder god, and this world’s protector. I would like to know what you three are doing on this planet? The elder gods sensed an outside presence besides the attackers.” Raiden asks.
Spiderman and Leo look at each other, and then back at Raiden. Leonardo puts his swords back into there sheaths.
“Well basically these guys attacked us on our home planet, and tried to escape. But we followed them through a portal, loosing one hero from our world. We have been searching for Batman and a blond kid since.” Spidy tells.
Raiden thinks for a second, before smiling.
“I think you two should come with me. I think I may know the two you are looking for.” Raiden says.
Leonardo walks over, and picks up Zatanna who is still unconscious. Raiden has the two of them make physical contact with him. The four of them vanish into electricity. Shortly they re appear in front of Johnny Cage, who sits on a couch. He is startled to see Raiden with outsiders. Jax and the others look over. Naruto gets out of his chair, and rushes to see them.
“Hey Leo, it’s good to see that your ok. Where are your brothers?” Naruto asks.
He looks over at the other ninja with a smile.
“I’ll tell you all about it, in awhile.” Leonardo replies.
Johnny stands up, putting his hand through Zatanna’s hair.
“So what’s this pretty girl’s name?” Johnny asks.
“Her name is Zatanna. We were ambushed, that is why she is not conscious.” Spiderman tells.
Naruto runs out of the room, and heads down the hall to the training room. He enters to see Sonya watching Liu Kang and Bruce sparing. He makes his way over to them.
“Hey Bruce, Leo is here! You know, one of the turtles. He has an injured woman with him.” Naruto says aloud.
Bruce and Liu back off from each other, and turn to Naruto.
“I will be right out.” Bruce tells him.
He then turns back to Liu shaking his hand, and thanking him for the sparing session. Bruce walks over to a table and picks up his bat shirt, utility belt, and gloves putting them on. He then puts on the cape and cowl. Batman and Naruto head out of the room. Liu picks up a nearby towel, putting it around his neck.
“You can let the others know I will be out in a bit. I’m going to take a quick shower.” Liu tells her.
Liu heads for the bathroom, while Sonya exits the room. Batman and Naruto enter the main room. Batman’s heart drops a bit, at the sight of Zee un conscious in Leonardo’s arms. He gets over there fast.
“What happened to her?” Batman asks.
Spiderman puts his hand on Batman’s shoulder.
“Don’t worry bats, she will be fine. It was just some smoke bombs.” Spidy tells.
Batman is relieved to hear this.
“Do you guys have a quite place to lay her?” Leo asks
Batman walks in front of the turtle.
“Give her to me. I will take her to lay and rest in my room.” Batman says, holding his arms out. Leo puts Zee into his arms.
“I will be back shortly.” Batman says.
He walks out of the room with Zatanna. Raiden looks at Johnny, Spiderman, and Leo.
“I will be back soon; I must come to a conclusion with the elder gods.” Raiden says, disappearing yet again.
Spiderman introduces himself to Naruto and Johnny. Afterward, Leo and Spiderman follow Naruto to the table to meet the other guys. They all sit at the table, with Leo telling them what he and Spiderman went through. Many floors up, Batman takes off Zee’s hat and shoes placing her in the bed.
Mileena enters the turtle’s cell, but is very surprised at what she sees. The turtles lay on the ground, covered in blood. Mileena rushes over to the jail door and unlocks it. A Tarkatan enters behind her, to see the turtles laying there. He grins as he sniffs the air, realizing the truth. Mileena makes her way into the cell.
“Get away from them Mileena, there not dead!! It’s just paint!” The Tarkatan yells.
Raphael jumps up and grabs her, throwing her into a wall. He then runs outside of the cell. Mikey jumps up to kick her but it is grabbed, and he is thrown into Donatello who was getting up. She runs out of the cell locking it.
“Get out of here bro, just save yourself!” Mikey yells.
Mileena and a Tarkatan face Raph. He thinks quick, running to the nearby door and exiting. When outside he locks the door, he backs up as the Tarkatans blades come through. The turtle looks down both hallways, to see Tarkatan fighters guarding both. He looks up to see a vent opening. Raph jumps off of the walls, and makes his way up there. He gets inside the vent, closing the entrance behind him.
“I need to try and relocate my weapons. I will come back for my bros, but not now.” Raphael says moving around in the vents.
Mileena and the Tarkatan quickly break out of the room. The Tarkatans guarding the area hear the huge bang. So they all come down the hall to check it out.
“Did any of you see where the green freak went?!” Mileena says growling.
The surrounding Tarkatans all reply with the answer no. Mileena punches at a wall, with her head down. She then looks up to see the Tarkatans sitting around talking.
“What are you idiots doing just standing there, go out and find him!” Mileena yells.
The groups of Tarkatans quickly split and begin the search. Mileena walks back into the turtle’s cell which no longer has a door entrance.
“The three of you thought you were so clever, it must hurt to get caught. You have one option now, you either talk by tomorrow night, or your sea food.” Mileena says with an evil laugh.
Michelangelo stands up.
“Could you please bring us a bucket of water? We really do need to wash this paint off.” Michelangelo asks.
Mileena smiles, while shaking her head.
“What will you try this time, I doubt water will get you out.” She says laughing.
Mikey frowns at her, crossing his arms.
“If you want any answers, I suggest you do this little thing for us.” Mikey tells.
Mileena looks away from Michelangelo.
“You will get your water, but another stunt like that again and I will kill you both myself.” Mileena tells them.
Mileena then walks leaving the room. Mikey walks over and taps his brother who seems to be staring into space.
“At least Raph got away, so what do you think he’ll do now?” Michelangelo asks.
Donatello looks over at his brother.
“If he is smart, he won’t try and bust us out himself. He will go and find Leo and come back.” Donatello says.
“Whatever he does, he better make it fast. I feel if where here to much longer, we won’t live to tell the story.” Mikey says.
Zatanna’s eyes open to see a wall with Japanese writing on it. She remembers that she was walking on a field with Spiderman and Leo, and then they were attacked! She jumps up at the memory. A hand moves over and rests on her shoulder; she is startled as she turns to face the person.
“Batman!! Where am I? What happened to the others?” Zatanna asks.
He takes his hand off of her shoulder.
“Don’t worry; the two of them are down stairs. Just get your rest, and if you need anything I will be down there as well.” Batman says.
He gets out of the chair at the side of the bed, and makes his way to the door. Zatanna sits up on the bed.
“So what exactly happened?” Zatanna asks.
He turns from the door, looking back at her.
“Maybe later, just get your rest Zee.” Batman says exiting.
Down in the main room, Naruto, Spidy, Kung Lao, and Jax play cards at a table. Liu Kang enters the room walking over to the table.
“So who has been winning?” Liu asks.
The guys look up from there cards at Liu.
“Kung Lao has taken the last two games, but I won’t let him this time. Nice to meet you Liu Kang, I’m Naruto.”
Liu smiles shaking hands with the leaf village ninja. Spiderman and Liu also introduce themselves. Liu walks over and pulls up another chair to the table and sits down.
“Why don’t we start over, I want to get in this.” Liu suggests.
Kung Lao looks over at him with a grin.
“You can be in the next game, it’s almost over.” Kung Lao says.
“How about we just let him in, it will make things more interesting.” Spiderman says.
Kung Lao and the others look over at the wall crawler. All of them know he suggested that because he knew he had no chance of winning the set. Kung Lao smiles at this.
“How about not Web boy.” Kung Lao says smiling.
The game continues with Liu watching. Johnny and Sonya sit on a couch nearby.
Back at the Castle
Raphael crawls in the vents for a long time. He finally comes to a place, spotting his weapons as well as the others. He looks down in the area, not seeing any Tarkatans. So he opens the vent and jumps down. The turtle picks up his sai’s, and jumps out of the way before he is kicked. He turns to see a Tarkatan.
“Where did you come from, I didn’t see you from up there?” Raphael asks, spinning a Sai.
“I hid in a corner that can’t be viewed from up there. You didn’t really think we would leave your weapons un guarded?” The Tarkatan asks.
Raph answers by attacking the Tarkatan. He throws a Sai right into his head, before he can do anything. Raphael then pulls the Sai out of his head. The turtle quickly makes his way back into the vent. Blood drips from the fighters head.
Sasuke wraps something around his earlier wound. He walks around in a forest alone. Up ahead he can see someone lying down injured in the tall grass. He makes his way over to the person flipping them over. He is surprised to see Hinata.
“Sasuke you mus.. ge.. ou.. Of here.” Hinata tries to say.
Her face is all beat up. Sasuke looks up in the surrounding trees to see knights looking down at him. They jump down surrounding him.
“Hello Sasuke, you have the choice of coming with us. Or you can choose to end up like your friend here.” The knight tells.
“She is not my friend, and I will not be going anywhere with you.” Sasuke says, with his eyes closed.
His eyes open to view the Mangekyo Sharingan. He gets off of his knees and begins fighting the knights. He kicks two knights into a tree. He snaps the neck of another knight. One knight grabs Sasuke by both his arms and slams his knee into his back. He yells out in pain as another knight stands in front of him, punching him in the stomach. The knight grabs Sasuke by his hair and knees him in the face. The other knight lets go of him, and the two watch as he falls to the ground. Blood comes out of his mouth and nose.
“You just had to do this the hard way. That is what happens to people who defy us.” The knight says.
Another knight creates energy rings, which wrap around Sasuke. One of the knights in the group creates a portal.
“Grab him and let’s go. Azun wants us to bring this one to him.” The knight says.
“I think you’re mistaking, we have to take him back to our king.” The other knight argues.
“This was a last minute thing that was changed.” We are taking him to Azuns prison base on the other planet we are currently trying to maintain order.
A knight picks up Sasuke, and they all jump into the portal. It opens in front of a prison yard, and the knights enter with Sasuke.
A few miles
Raphael has escaped the castle, and has entered some forest area. He sits on a rock catching his breath. He looks over in a pond to see a frog on a lily pad.
“Man is I glad to be out of that place. I need to find Leo and the others, than I will be back to help my bros.” Raphael says.
Over an hour passes, and Raphael begins his move. Back in the Shalion Temple, the guys still play cards. But they have there money on the line this time. Batman has joined in. Batman, Spidy, and Kung Lao are the only three who still remain in this game. Batman takes another look at his cards, and pushes his money forward.
“I’m all in” Batman says.
Spiderman and Kung Lao push there money into the crowd as well. Kung Lao and Batman reveal there cards at the same time. Spiderman smiles and reveals his cards.
“That’s right gentlemen, the King beats all.” Spiderman says, pulling the pile of money toward him.
Batman grabs Spiderman’s hand.
“Hey what are you doing, let go man!” Spidy says.
Batman pulls an extra two cards out of his glove. Everyone at the table is surprised to see this.
“I knew there was something fishy, about how well you were doing. You’re a cheater.” Batman says, letting go of his hand.
Spiderman moves the pile of money closer to him.
“Don’t take this personal guys. How about we all talk this over, like civilized men.” Spiderman says, backing up from the table.
Kung Lao gets out of his chair and runs over to Spidy, grabbing him by his shirt area.
“You’re the biggest loser at this table!” Kung Lao yells.
Batman pulls the two of them away from each other.
“That’s enough. After all it’s just a game.” Batman says.
He puts his hand into the pile of money, and takes back his entire share. Everyone does the same. Spiderman looks down at the table to see no money left.
“What about the money I put in?” Don’t I get my money back?” Spiderman asks confused.
The room is quite with no one saying a word.
“Let this be a lesson to you. Don’t get caught cheating in a mans game.” Batman tells.
Batman then walks over to Sonya, throwing her the keys to his room.
“If you don’t mind, could you check on Zatanna for me? I will be in the training room.” Batman tells.
She looks up at him and smiles.
“I’ll do that for you, but I think you should take a break from training.” Sonya says.
“Thanks, but no thanks.” Batman replies.
He heads to the training room with Liu and Kung Lao. Spiderman sits at the table with his head down, disappointed. Naruto walks up behind Spidy tapping him on the shoulder. Spiderman turns around to face him. Naruto hands him five bucks.
“Here is 1/10 of your money back.” He says.
Spidy takes the money putting his arm around the ninja.
“I like you Naruto, you’re a cool kid!”
