Cast of Characters: Eddie Brock, Piotr Rasputin

Eddie Brock has posed:
The sounds of gunfire could be heard coming from New Lots, one of the poorer sections of Brooklyn. What had started out as two rivals from different gangs literally bumping into each other on the street had escalated. A gun was drawn, then a second one. After the first shot, members of both gang filtered in as they got word of what was going on. At the moment there are 4 of the Lo Boys fighting 5 members of El Posse. Most are armed with handguns, but one of the Lo Boys has a shotgun. Two gang members on each side have been hit, but not so bad as to take them out of the fight.

The worst part? The fight has spilled over into an apartment complex. Bullets are going through windows and walls, the frightened residents laying flat on the ground. The sounds of screams can be heard after some shots, though it is difficult to tell if someone is hit or if it is just a cry of terror at the sound of a nearby gunshot.

Not far away, a hulking figure is hanging on the side of a building. His skin is jet black, with white eyes and teeth, and a symbol on the chest that is a caricature of Spider-Man's spider emblem.

His teeth draw back in a grin. "I think I hear the dinner bell!" he says.

   <<Eddie>> "Ok we can go take a look. But we are NOT eating anyone that isn't deserving of it."

Venom grins and jumps out into the night, throwing out a tendril of what looks like black web to swing himself towards the gunfire in New Lots.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
Gunfire. Piotr glances up and listens for a moment, he wants to be sure of the direction. He was out getting some minor things, some russian imports from a local market, things not found just anywhere. All of that changes now, "Never a peaceful day." he mutters to himself and is dropping his paperbag to the ground as he begins to run towards the gunfire.

As he strides closer and closer to the gunfire, he is aware of his surroundings, aware of how many people are around, aware that not everyone looks kindly on mutants. However, it doesn't stop him, as the organic metal begins to sheath him as a second skin.

Eddie Brock has posed:
Many of the people closest to the firefight have fled. Some others had taken cover though, and as Piotr closes on the area, first one and then another make a break, running up the sidewalk to get away.

Piotr is approaching from the side of the 5 members of El Posse. They are spread out, hiding behind a car, a cement block wall, two are on corners of buildings, and one is up on the landing between two flights of open air stairs that lead up to the second floor apartments of the building he's beside.

Venom swings through the city, nearing the sound of the fight. "I told you we should have brought chocolate. They are much better if they are holding it," he says.

   <<Eddie>> "I know you're hungry. Peckish? But we had that awesome steak and fries at Gwen's. We don't -have- to eat someone today."

Venom just grins to refute that statement. He throws out another web-like protrusion and begins to swing down, approaching the backs of the Lo Boys.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
Subtle is not something you'd describe Piotr, the Colossus as. He comes running into the middle of the gunfight with a russian battle cry. It does what he intends, draws the fire of the El Posse that he is closest to. The bullets of course have no effect on his organic steel hide, one of the poor gangers however does catch a ricochet from one of his own.

"Yeargh! Fuck you shot me!" He yells at his cohort, although that isn't precisely there fault.

"Its a mutie!" another yells, and just turns it on, firing faster, as if more bullets will somehow yield a better result.

"You are making a mistake. You should give yourself over to the authorities..." Colossus begins as he grabs a nearby trash can and throws it at a velocity that overcomes some poor gangmember as he reloads his gun.

Eddie Brock has posed:
It takes the Lo Boys a few moments to realize there's someone else involved. The sudden increased volume of gunfire causes them to duck behind whatever cover each of them has found so far. Eventually they start to peek out again though, and finally a couple of them notice the guns aren't pointed their way, and one even spotting the silvery-skinned Colossus, with sparks flying off him as bullets bounce off his skin.

They look back and forth towards each other and one of them waves forward. They take advantage of the lull in gunshots coming their way to move up closer. The one with the shotgun quickly reloads a few extra shells. He moves to where he has a vantage on one of El Posse, lifting the gun back with the stock against his shoulder and aiming it.

Venom drops to the ground right behind him, making enough sound the gang member turns and sees him and lets out a scream. "Holy hell!" he shouts and then shoots at Venom from point blank range.

The Klyntar moves fast, evading most of the shot though his shoulder is hit. It doesn't stop him from grabbing the twenty year old in one oversized, clawed hand, and the shotgun in the other. He whips the shotgun across the street. "You are the one that did that!" he says, pointing at door that has a Leprechaun on the outside, the work looking like that of a kid. But there are buckshot holes in the door. "Shooting where children live!? Thank you!"

The gang member is scared half to death, but stammers, "T-t-thank you?"

Venom grins. "Yes. You qualify!" His maw opens wide enough to engulf the man's head, ripping it off and chewing and swallowing it in one gulp.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
A quick hand and Piotr uses another Gangmember as a weapon against his friend, grabbing him by the leg as a stray gun shot echoes into stone. Tossing him to the side and into another.

"Aieeeeeeeeeeeee" The poor guy says before the thud of flesh bouncing against flesh, they'll survive of course, Piotr isn't one to kill or maim his foes, but it is going to hurt like hell and take the fight out of them.

"This fight is..." Colossus begins. Its at that point when he notices Venom literally bite someones head off, its a monster. Right? "What are you doing!?" he calls out and then begins to turn his attention on the 'villain.'

Eddie Brock has posed:
The rest of the gang members see what's going on, whether it be Colossus just ignoring their gunshots, or Venom beheading the one with the shotgun. They all decide it is time to be somewhere else.

Those that are still mobile start to make a break for it and try to run off. The ones that took the pummeling from Colossus throwing one into the other, stagger and stumble, as does one of the Lo Boys who was shot in his leg earlier.

Venom doesn't stop with just the head. He eats the arms quickly, one at a time, and then consumes the rest of the body in one big bite, his head larger than normal for a bit as he's chewing. He spits and the gang members bloody, ripped up shoes flop out onto the pavement.

He turns towards the metal man. "Taking a very, very... very bad man off the street," he says.

   <<Eddie>> "Hey you actually listened. I'm proud of you buddy. But maybe we should go ahead and get out of here now?"

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
"Not like that. That isn't the way." Colossus of course presumes to lecture, his heart in the right place of course even if there is a logic to what Venom is doing. "Killing them makes you no different, you are a killer." he adds with a grimace, brow furrowing as he coils, ready to spring and attack Venom if he moves towards another. "I cannot let you kill anyone else." he states in a low tone, his accent evident.

Eddie Brock has posed:
Venom looks and sees the gang members have run away. He turns back towards the large metal Russian, his head tilting to the side. His voice is rather befitting a monster actually. Deep and rough, and just a bit eerie sounding. "The ones who run away will shoot more people," he says.

The large black creature kicks one of the tennis shoes he spit out, launching it towards Colossus, though it will just clatter to the street nearby to the X-man. "This one is done hurting other people. He deserved what he got," the Klyntar says, wicked teeth showing in its grin.

Venom turns as if to walk away. "And like you could stop me," he says, looking back over his shoulder. He reaches out and grabs a full trash can and whips it towards Colossus casually as he's walking away. But it's not a gentle toss.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
A forearm is raised to sheild himself from the incoming trash can, it clangs across the metal frame and bounces off in a loud bang. "Hey! You cannot just leave!" he decides, still trying to figure out what to do with Venom, but without thinking it through he is already on the move, pushing forward and swining one of his powerful fists!

"I've seen those like you my entire life." he begins to lecture, "Always those with power, stating how what they do is for the greater good. But all they do is exasperate the chain of violence!" and he has, how many of the X-Men's enemies think what they are doing is good, and just, for mutantkind? Almost all of them.

Eddie Brock has posed:
Venom hears the pounding footsteps and turns just in time to get clocked. The symbiote flies backwards twenty feet and crashes into the side of a car. He picks himself up, not looking too hurt by the collision. No, if anything he looks eager and elated as he smashes a fist into the other hand.

"Greater good?" Venom repeats in his rumbling bass voice. "I never claimed that. I'm just less bad than the other guy," he says with a wicked grin.

   <<Eddie>> "Good one. I think your quips are improving. But hey we really don't need to fight this-"

Venom suddenly leaps forward, covering the distance to Colossus, both fists clasped together over his head as he plans to slam them both down into the mutant's head from above.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
Colossus takes the hit with a thud that sounds through the streets, symbiote on organic steel. This is what he does, a living tank, take the hit and then hit back yourself. "Less bad?" as if the concept of it is foreign to Piotr. "An excuse for what you do."

He reaches out to grab hold of one arm, wanting to keep the distance close, fight inside where his strength gives him the advantage. Hold tight to the opponent and grind him down. As he grabs hold, he uses his other hand to punch the symbiote clad Venom in the gut, "Go down. It is easier."

Eddie Brock has posed:
The punch causes the body of the black, monstrous figure to quiver and shake, and he growls out as if the blow hurt. Though it doesn't take him down. "Go down?" the rumbling bass voice repeats. "Go away," Venom offers as if an alternative.

His arm that Colossus has ahold of suddenly becomes more like trying to hold wet, slick putty than a body. It moves to flow around Colossus's arm, to grip hold of the metal mutant. Then Venom pivots to try to throw the X-man, aiming him for the car with the already-dented in passenger door where Venom had already struck it.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
For the moment, Colossus is so caught off guard by the liquid slick symbiote that shifts to grab hold of him that his eyes just go wide and he doesn't think of letting go to defend himself. "AH!" he yells out as he is swung through the air and smashed into the car. Unlike Venom however, when Colossus hits that car, its like it was hit with a wrecking ball. Smashing into it, the car is sent back a good ten feet and Piotr is in the drivers side despite having hit the passenger side.

He shrugs the car off of him like someone would shrug off an extra jacket, letting the metal bend to his strength and fall around him. "You are strong...whomever you are. Some sort of..." eyes glancing to the symbol on his chest, "...knock off Spider-Man." he isn't exactly going to win awards for his banter.

Eddie Brock has posed:
The creature's white eyes grow wide, and the inhuman face takes on a snarling look of rage. "Spider-Man! Spider-Man!?" the monstrous voice yells. There's another car nearby, not the one that both have crashed into already. Venom's arms extended, like sticky blobs, a nightmare version of Reed Richards. Or maybe Clayface is the better comparison. The black fluid arms rip off a passenger door and hurl it at Colossus like it were Captain America throwing his shield. The hood is next, ripped off and thrown, and then a section of the car's roof, though it comes off so misshapen it doesn't make a very effective thrown weapon.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:

The door bounces off of metal shoulder. "You did not like that comparison? No. You are far uglier." Piotr replies. This time he catches the carhood, there is the creek of metal bending in his fingertips as it strains against the force of the throw and the sudden stop caused by his hand. He rips the hood in two and tosses it back at him, one and then the other. He is steadily walking forward as he defneds himself and tosses pieces of car backwards. He may not be the unstoppable Juggernaut, but the organic steel does its job well, steadily he marches towards Venom.

Eddie Brock has posed:
Venom swings his hands violent to knock the returned bits of metal car body aside. A third car is damaged by one of them as the deflected debris goes right through its windshield. Adding to the bullet holes from the firefight it already sustained.

   <<Eddie>> "Look we didn't come here to fight this guy. We stopped the shootout. That's why he was here too. Let's get out of here. We-"

Venom raises a clawed hand to point to Colossus as the X-man stalks towards him. "Stay out of my way next time. I will not be as forgiving if you interfere with me again, Metal Man."

One of the dead man's shoes is nearby, and Venom kicks it towards Colossus, then reaches up, shooting out a black webbing that grips one of the taller buildings nearby. He leans back and then slingshots himself up into the air, swinging off in much the same manner as Spider-Man does, for all that he raged at hearing the webhead's name.

Piotr Rasputin has posed:
A grunt of disapproval and Colossus crosses his arms over his chest, his metal head tilting skyward to watch the retreating Venom. "Hm." he looks around and sees the damage they had wrought. "Of course this will be blamed on the mutant..." he sighs and then takes off running in the opposite direction to make his own escape.
