Tut for Tat
Date of Scene: 06 February 2021
Location: Big Belly Burger - Amusement Mile
Synopsis: ZAP! POW BIFF ! goes King Tut!
Cast of Characters: Ted Kord, Carrie Kelley

Ted Kord has posed:
"Abu-rabu sim BU-TU!" the words drift down Amusement Mile in the dead of light. Following the words leads you to a bizarre scene. An immense and portly man in the garb of a Pharoah surrounded by men dressed as Bronze Age courtiers an soldiers watching the Pharoah swing a medallion on a chain. Facing him and entranced, as well as levitated on a pair of stepping disks is the Blue Beetle, gun half drawn. Muscles locked in rigid battle with himself.

Carrie Kelley has posed:
She's in all black, a bat symbol on her chest, and up in the shadows -- where Bat folk tend to hang out before the action starts. Pharoah's chanting makes her scrunch up her face and sigh quietly, "What is /with/ these geezers..." she mutters, as she digs into her utility belt, looking for the right tool for the job.

As the chanting continues, she leaps a little lower, from one roof to the next, landing near silently, and then she throws the smoke bombs she pulled out of the belt. When they go off, she fires her grappling hook, and swings down to grab Blue Beetle, whisking him out of the center of the circle of soldiers and courtiers, and -- hopefully -- breaking the enchantment he is under.

Ted Kord has posed:
Ted Kord gets grabbed as the smoke bombs go off. The disks on his feet negate his weight, though he still possesses the same mass but Carrie might swing further than she intended or wind up being carried aloft if Beetle loses control or misunderstands the action. His gun clears the holster and goes off with a flash. Yes he is misunderstanding. "Uh, what? Batgirl? Huntress?"

Pharaoh has a huge sneezing fit and in Old School fashion, "Get those little bastets! Go... go you addle pated ninny hammers! The son of the Moon commands."

Carrie Kelley has posed:
It might be that Carrie sort of misunderstood what exactly was keeping Ted floating. She MAY have thought it was part of the ceremony that was going on, and figured it would stop when she broke the spell. NOPE! Turns out, that floating is all bug man here. She misses her landing, and when the gun goes off, well, she pushes away from Ted, and the pair go flying in different directions. She crashes and rolls across the pavement for a moment, before she's back on her feet -- years of dance and parkour have taught her how to fine tune her balance in any situation.

In answer to the question that she's asked Carrie calls out, "Sparrow? I think? I'm working on some things, ok?" before she turns to face the soldiers charging at her. She pulls out a trio of batarangs, and tosses them at the mooks closest to her.

Ted Kord has posed:
Ted Kord does a somewhat ungainly pumping of his feet, looking a bit like Wile E. Coyote struggling against gravity. Unlike Wile E. He doesn't fall and turns around to... "wat exactly?

For the uninformed, the BB Gun and it's big brother the Bluezooka have two modes, a blinding flash mood and a concussion blast of air. Knowing Bats usually have night vision gear and doesn't want to blind Sparrow-I-Think. That leaves the air blast which will disperse the smoke. Hmmm.

The smoke departs as the blast hits King tut square in the back and propels him into several courtiers. "Sorry about your smoke. Hey I got tubby right in the asp! Blinder beam coming next. Say when!" Yes he definitely needs to work more with the Bats. He's pretty sure he'll get a bad efficiency report. He is pretty sure Batman collects those.

Carrie Kelley has posed:
"Now's not really the time!" Sparrow-maybe calls back, as the three soldiers nearest her drop from the batarangs. She fires another shot from her OTHER grapple (two wrists, two grapples bby) and swings back up onto the rooftops. From there, she can at least get some cover for when people start shooting at her, or throwing spears, or whatever these guys do.

"Hit it!" she calls towards Ted, giving him permission to flashbang the bad guys, so she can get closer to Pharoah, maybe, or maybe just cause a distraction in another direction.

Ted Kord has posed:
Ted Kord hits it when he hears 'hit'. Now the brighter thugs close their eyes, expecting that to save their optics, but a 500 lumen out put goes right through closed eyelids. They all start yelling regardless and do a scene out of 'Day of the Triffids. Running into each other. Tut is not blinded as he was already knocked away and was trying to run away. He is struggling to his feet and presenting a fine target for Carrie... kind of hard to miss. Beetle is already seizing his advantage pummeling the goons nearest him.

Carrie Kelley has posed:
Carrie Kelley isn't quite sure what she just told Ted to hit, but when the flash goes off, she's not staring directly at it, so it really doesn't blind her much. And it's just a bright flash of light. She probably won't mark it down on the mandatory Bat Family Post-Battle Report Form rev. 13-A.

She sees the struggling Pharoah on the street below, and, well, who can pass on an easy target? She leaps off the roof she's on, and dives towards he rotund man, feet first. She's clearly attempting to knock him out with her blow, and when she lands on him, she follows up with a quick punch, just to make sure he's not going anywhere.

Ted Kord has posed:
Ted Kord catches a glimpse of King Tut making like the world's ugliest air bag for Sparrow etc. He turns his full attention to the thugs rushing him from either side and lifts up at the last moment. The thugs smack into each other and lay themselves out.

"I never thought that'd work in a million years! Bwahaha!"

Carrie Kelley has posed:
King Tut being out for the count means that Could-Be-Sparrow has a moment to assess the situation, before she sees that most of the mooks have fled the scene. She lifts her wrist to her mouth and says, "Gordon, send them in." As if on cue, lights and sirens light up the amusement park, and Gotham City's Finest are running around, rounding up who they can.

The Batperson looks over at Blue Bug, gives him a single nod, and then quickly parkours up some walls and back into the shadows. Y'know, like Bat people are wont to do.

Ted Kord has posed:
Ted Kord does a classic "Where did she go?" head swivel, then shrugs. He lifts into the night sky and is quickly lost to sight.
