Porter Park became the destination for the biggest battle of the century, as Josh led E.G.G in the charge against earth's mightiest heroes, The Avengers. The battle was hard fought, some Avengers being caught off guard, like Thor with the Coulson's Revenge or Black Widow with Eileen's powers. But Acacia and Agent Becket got tossed around by Iron Man while Josh got a taste of Captain America's shield. In the end, Josh fired the full nuclear range of the Repulsor Blaster against Iron Man's actual Arc powered repulsors, and cratered Porter Park. After being chased off by the Hulk, Josh let Allyson know that his stance was now known to the Avengers, and Iron Man laid it out for Captain America. E.G.G had to be stopped.
“Have at thee!” Thor shouted, spinning his hammer Mjolnir in I circle, readying for attack.
“Julian, shut him down, now!” Josh shouted.
“You got it!” With that, Julian powered up a large gun, which blasted Thor with a ray of orange energy. Thor flew back and slid in the grass, dropping Mjolnir feet away.
“What manner of sorcery…” He said, rubbing his head.
“Like it?” Julian asked. “It’s called the Coulson’s Revenge, built off the remains of the Destroyer! Figured if it could work on Loki, it’d work on you to.” Thor clenched his fists, and began to stand, but Julian blasted him again. Thor slid deeper into the ground. “He ain’t goin nowhere!” He called. Josh nodded, glad that Thor was out of the picture.

So, remember that gun that Agent Phil Coulson used to blast Loki through a wall in the Avengers movie? Yep, that's the one. If you don't remember, then go watch The Avengers again. If you haven't seen The Avengers yet, well, turn off the computer, and walk away. But yeah, it emits the same energy as the Destroyer (That giant robot that was in Thor. If you haven't seen Thor, then turn off the computer, and yada, yada, yada.) So it's gonna pack a punch, even against an Avenger as mighty as Thor.
Wait... Who Trained Eileen!?!?
“Stop this Agent Wuthrich!” Black Widow said, kicking Eileen. “I don’t want to hurt you.”
“Then don’t, you can end this!” Eileen shouted, swinging at her. Black Widow blocked the punch. “Tell everyone we’re sanction by S.H.I.E.L.D!”
“I am under direct orders to do just the opposite.” She stated, chopping at Eileen’s throat. Eileen caught her arm and kicked for her leg. Black Widow twisted around swiftly and elbowed Eileen in the back. “You were one of my best students Eileen.” She said to her. “Don’t let it end like this.”
“It’s all up to you.” Eileen said, assuming her fighting stance. “Tell everyone the truth.”
“I don’t see the problem here,” Black Widow said, strafing cautiously around Eileen. “Fury said he’d relocate you.”
“We’re fine where we are.” Eileen said.
“Fine,” Black Widow replied. “But just know I tried to offer you an out.” With that, Black Widow lunged at Eileen.
* * *
That's right, Eileen was trained by Natasha Romanov, the Black Widow herself! Talk about bad@$$! When I made Eileen's character, I wanted her to be sort of hard, by the books, follows orders, and kicks butt when need be. Like someone else we know? Even if you didn't catch the similar personality traits, the fact that Eileen's weapon of choice are Black Widow's coveted Widow Stings, well, that was just a dead giveaway. If you didn't catch it, then turn off the computer, and you know the rest.
Oh, He Done Messed Up
“Give it up.” Captain America said, approaching Josh with his shield. Josh turned to see Iron Man and Thor coming from the other direction. “It’s over son.”
“It’s not over,” Josh said, taking out his Repulsor Blaster. “Not yet!” He turned quickly and fired it at Iron Man. Thinking fast, Iron Man fired his own repulsor blast, and the two beams met in the middle. An energy sphere began to form. Cap and Thor backed up.
“That thing is not powered by arc reactor tech!” Tony said. “It shouldn’t be able to counteract my repulsor!”
“Sir,” Jarvis alerted. “The device is powered by a nuclear reactor.”
“That thing’s nuclear!” Iron Man shouted. Josh held the Repulsor Blaster steady, the energy sphere getting bigger.
“Here goes nothing!” He shouted. He twisted the dial from stable to suicide, and in a split second, the energy sphere exploded. The blast was massive. For a moment, all of Rexburg, Idaho was blinded by the light.
* * *
Well, that was stupid. I mean, number one, the setting is labeled suicide, so surely it would be a bad idea to do that in the first place. And then there's the whole thing of shooting at Iron Man with a nuclear weapon. It seems Director Westbrook isn't really making all of the best decisions in this fight. But then again, he's fighting the Avengers, so he's probably going to have no choice but to pull out all the stops.
Suddenly they all heard Allyson’s blood curling scream. They rushed over to the source of the sound to see Allyson run through the smoke. She fell onto the ground, crying hysterically. Eileen rushed up to her.
“Calm down, breathe.” She said. “What’s wrong.” Allyson looked up at Eileen.
“Run!” She shouted.
“RRRRRAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!” Everyone quickly looked up towards the noise that had pierced the deafening silence. Through the smoke Josh could see a giant, hulking shadow standing directly over them.
“Run, RUN!” He shouted. Acacia turned and ran as fast as she could with Becket on her shoulder. Josh dragged Julian, who was attempting to run himself. Eileen quickly helped up Allyson and they began to flee. They all ran for their lives. And the incredible Hulk chased them.
“RRRRRAAAAGGGHHH!!!” He roared, in hot pursuit of his opponents.
“Split up!” Josh shouted. Everyone went their separate ways, but Hulk continued to trail Josh and Julian.
“He would…” Julian managed as they ran. Hulk slid to a stop, then raised his fists into the air.
“HULK SMASH!” He shouted, pounding the ground. The earth quaked, and everyone on their feet fell to the ground.
* * *
Ooh man, the giant green rage monster is free! The Hulk came after E.G.G in full force! And he smashed stuff! Now, all my fellow nerds are probably saying "The Hulk would kill E.G.G! They wouldn't stand a chance!" Yeah, why do think I added fog? If it weren't for the zero visibility, then yeah, E.G.G would have been scrambled.
Josh's Threat Assessment of The Hulk
In Cap We Trust
Iron Man walked up to Captain America, who was helping firefighters lift a fallen tree.
“Just got off with the President.” He said. “It’s gone that far Steve. People don’t take kindly to historic parks getting blown off the map.”
“I understand Tony.” He replied. “Has anyone found Banner yet?”
“No, still MIA, you know he disappears after every fight.”
“Her leg is broken, and Hawkeye suffered a concussion. The blast knocked him off of the roof.” Captain America sighed.
“We can still try to reason with them…”
“This is beyond diplomacy Steve! That option went out the window when they fired a nuclear weapon on us!”
“Aye,” Thor agreed. “I know not who these egg men are, but they have truly earned my wrath.” Captain America looked at Porter Park. He looked at Hawkeye on a stretcher and Black Widow getting her leg in a cast. He looked at the people, previously overjoyed that the Avengers were in their presence, now filled with fear and anger.
“It’s clear then team.” He said. “We take E.G.G down. Tonight.”
* * *
Well, the Captain has spoken. E.G.G is going down! But can you blame him? They've hurt his team members and destroyed a landmark! Josh really just got his team in a fix. Will he be able to hold against The Avengers much longer? Or is this where it all ends!
