Infini-Knight and Day: Part 4




4.

The Atmosphere of Earth

A energy clone of Infini-King has challenged the Ruling Class to a fight. It is learning a lesson about the power of Moon Front. The living moon hits him with a wave of gravity energy, shattering the shield and sword of the energy clone.

Moon Front tries to punch the clone and it flattens itself and rises behind Moon Front, crushing him with a mallet. Ghost Chase attacks the energy clone before it can follow thru. She dizzies it with her ghostly speed, landing a few tangible punches.

The robot called War Max is next. It creates a few basic Zoner hand pistols and fills the clone with several holes.

Before it can put itself back together, it is caught in the grip of Moon Front's gravity field. Over Size crushes the clone with a giant foot.

The field surrounding Earth dissolves.

Moon Front can't help but think that was too easy.


****

The Energy Fortress of Infini-King

King feels a sharp pain go down his spine. The energy clone he sent to kill the friend of Infini-Knight, has been destroyed.

He can also sense that the Liberty Corps B-Team survived. Right now he is using a lot of his power to keep Star Shock bound. But he cannot help but feel he is being attacked on another front. Something that is taxing his resources.

****

The Mind Of Infini-Knight
Gold Sama has found the astral form of Infini-Knight. Right now he is simply a Rulian is a special uniform. To stop Crime King, he must return Infini-Knight to full health. He thinks back to the brutal battle they had in space and cannot help but think he was manipulated. At the time the visions felt so real and the Rulians were so quick to attack.

But being so close to Infini-Knight in a non combatal role, he can sense the nobility in the alien.

He puts his hand on the aliens forehead and chants.

“Om, Mani, Padme, Hum”

Sama merges with the astral form of Infini-Knight. Sinking deep into his memories.

He sees the Rulian known as Corlook as a young soldier/scientist in the Rulian Army. The Rulians were at war with a monstrous race called the Dominorse. The dinosaur like creatures could travel thru space without need of a rocket ship.

The Rulians meanwhile had entered an energy crisis. Rumors told the Ruler had been putting much of the empires resources into making him a cybernetic being.

Corlook is still unsure of the validity of the rumors. The Ruler has always possessed incredible power. Far stronger than any single Rulian. Dating back to the empires first experiments with genetic manipulation and cybernetics.

The memories are changing again. Now he is on a barren ugly planet that his squadron had won from the Dominorse. The creatures had been very intent on keeping it. But the Ruler was determined to take a seemingly useless world.

Corlook was part of the crew that was digging to the center of the world. Hoping to find anything useful. Until they dug too far and the explosions started.

The crew members all quickly teleported away.

All except Roclik, best friend of Corlook. He had been hit in the head with a piece of debris. Corlook teleported to his friend and tossed him aside as a wave of energy burst from all sides of the crater. He was consumed by the multicolored energy. But it did not burn, it simply rebuilt him. He emerged from the crater smarter and filled with power. From that day forward he was one with the Grid Zone.
Before Sama can get more information, he is shot in the shoulder with a spear. It was thrown by a Dominorse. Infini-Knight's memories are more dangerous than he suspected.

****

The Energy Fortress of Infini-King

Retro-9 can tell the Infini-King is straining. His mastery of the Grid Zone powers is far from complete. He believes the Rulian body that King stole is beginning to rebel. Scanning the planet he can see that the Ruling Class has shattered the energy barrier covering Earth.

“Observation, it maybe time to summon reinforcements.”

“No.... not yet. I can still crush them by myself.”

“Query, why did you attack Earth before mastering your powers.”

“You know that I would only be able to control this body for a limited time. I had to create a power base quickly.”

“Report, The Liberty Corps Agents survived your attack.”

“That I was not prepared for. Retro-9, create an army of Grid Men, to aid the Robot Energy Constructs I built to search for Sama. Have them attack anything that moves.”

“Query, what of Star Shock?”

“She dies.”


*****

Laser Eagle leads the Liberty Corps Agents to the fortress of Infini-King.

Before they can get further, the Micro, Fin Man and White Fury appear before him. Fury drops to her knees and vomits. Even the Fin Man looks sick.

The Micro looks apologetic.

“ I have this equipment in my mask, that keeps me from being hurt by changing sizes so fast. That is why you guys are so sick right now.”

Bronze Destroyer walks forward.

“You three work for the Sama? Where is he?”

Fin Man speaks.

“We do not know, he escaped before Crime King could capture him. I'm sure he has a plan. What about you chief?”

Cold Snap grabs Fin Man.

“That is Director Dixon punk. Show some respect!!!”

Fin Man lifts Cold Snap by the collar.

“Easy snow angel, don't need an excuse to crush you.”

White Fury snaps.

“Dammit, we need to work together!!!!”

Fury seems to grow slightly larger. Fin Man puts down Cold Snap.

Micro speaks again.

“Eagle, Destroyer, what is your plan.”

“We plan to storm the fortress from different directions. Lure Crime King into a direct confrontation and take him down.”

Micro speaks

“You'll die.”

Flash Fry speaks

“Micro, we have fought Crime King hundreds of times. He's tough but we can win.”

"He fought Gold Sama to a stand still. I have a plan and you can help.”

Laser Eagle and Bronze Destroyer each have a lifetime of experience. One thing they have learned is to not turn down an idea out of hand.

“Tell us”

“The energy fortress is actually a shell for the remains of DuPont Tower. There are tunnels underneath the towers, put in by the Gold Sama when he built the tower. I have the schematics here in my wrist computer. I get in thru the secret entrance and set up my energy scrambler and Crime King should be relatively powerless.”

The group of heroes are hit by energy blast. They see an army of Grid Men and Energy Robots lead by Retro-9.

Laser Eagle takes out his pistol and leads the charge.

“What are you waiting for Micro, GO!!!!”

Micro shrinks into nothingness.

*****

The Mind Of Infini-Knight

On the Astral Plane, the Gold Sama has full access to his powers. A well placed energy bolt, causes the Dominorse Creatures to explode.
Gold Sama is crushed by a giant foot belonging to Crime King. 

“Thanks for saving me the trouble of finding you.”

****

The Ruling Class are heading for Drama Bay to stop Crime King and retrieve the body of Infini-Knight.

They charge down to Earth on a meteor controlled by Moon Front. Before they can get further, they are attacked by the robot called Retro-9. 


It fires a Ion Missile at the meteor, sending the Ruling Class into free fall. Before Moon Front uses his gravity powers to catch the others. 

War Max scans the Retroactive Continuity Unit and attacks. Firing a barrage of bullets that Retro-9 blocks with a simple force field. War Max scans the robot and finds it is as advanced as War Max is. 


Moon Front prepares to attack when.

“Halt Moon Front Of The Ruling Class!!!”

“Not going to work Robot!!”

“If you do not hunt, Infini-Knight of the Ruling Class will die!!!”

Moon Front stops. He only came to Earth to save his friend. 


“Right now the body of Infini-Knight Of The Ruling Class is in possession on Crime King. If you attack now, the body will be destroyed.”

“What do you want robot?”

“Right now the fortress of Crime King is being attacked by a small army of human. Kill them immediately.”


The Ruling Class have made a vow not to take the lives of lower life forms. Moon Front in particular has an obligation to the Moon Nation not to take life. 

But they must save Infini-Knight. At the very least they can slow the humans down. 
***** The Mind Of Infini-Knight
Crime King has stomped Gold Sama into the ground. He cannot help but cackle as he grinds his giant foot into the Sama. Gold Sama mutters his chant and appears behind Crime King at a equally gigantic size. Sama breaks the nose of Crime King with a palm thrust. Or at least the mental image of his nose. Crime King has a scepter appear in his hands and fires a ball of energy at the Sama. Who turns it into a giant demon rabbit. That attacks Crime King, biting the fingers off his left hand. Crime King quickly turns his hand into a missile launcher and fires a volley into Gold Sama. Sama bleeding heals his wound and turns the blood into a slingshot and fires himself into Crime King. Who in turn creates a boxing glove that hits Gold Sama in the jaw, knocking him down. King takes the glove off and reveals the horse shoes. “You see Sama, even with your vaunted mental powers. I am the master of this domain.” A wave of grid energy sends Crime King crashing into the alien castle. It was created by the Rulian known as Infini-Knight. **** The Liberty Corps Agents are operating like a well oiled machine. Cold Snap freezes waves of Grid Men, while Flash Fry melts them. The change in temperature shatters them. Laser Eagle goes thru the air, attacking all of the flying energy Retro-9 duplicates. Bronze Destroyer, using the strength granted to him by his spirit guardians, takes his laser hatchet and hacks the Grid Men to pieces. White Fury is not doing as well. The stress is changing her. She is getting stronger, but at the cost of her reasoning. She wants to break everyone in her sight. Not just the Grid Men. Fin Man uses the water created from Cold Snap's melted ice and creates water shrapnel to take out another wave of Grid Men. While the woman called Dirt Nap, formerly called Sandblast, is using the Earth itself to devour waves of Grid Men. The group is confident that they can win this battle, when they are all taken down by a crushing gravity ball. Fired by Moon Front of the Ruling Class. **** In the tunnels beneath DuPont Tower, Fantomah guards the glowing Comatose body of the Gold Sama. Right now he means to end the battle, by removing Crime King from the body of Infini-Knight. The earth shakes violently. These tunnels were reinforced to survive any type of Earthquake. She knows she must guard the Sama. But she thinks she could end this directly. She looks at Sama and decides to join the battle. **** Micro is getting closer to the lair of Crime King. He does some last minute tinkering with the energy scrambler he retrieved from his lab. He first obtained it from a super villain called the Scrambler. His scrambler cannon had been meant to destroy all radio waves. Instead it was destroying planets in the Underverse. The Micro had to stop him. But now he must face Crime King again, who hours earlier had defeated him with ease. He reaches the lair and wishes he could activate it at his Micro size. But it must be full size, to disrupt the Grid Zone Energies. Before he gets to the lair, he hears screaming. He sees Crime King in a life and death battle with himself?
