So yeah. I am making a series that may or may not be posted regularly.
Just some quick info, it is inspired by Marvel and DC, each in their own ways, with my own twists, and of course, Bionicle! Some references will be obvious, and some will not. Just spot the references, and at the end, I'll congratulate you, and maybe give out a prize.
Anthony Leavens / The Atom
Equipment: Armor: Fire Claw; Jet Boosters.
10 years ago...
Anthony woke up, his first day of being the CEO of Leavens Corp. It was a company that brought new ways of making genius ideas happen, most by him or Ace. One such weapon was the Removable Fire Instrument, or R.F.I. His Dad sometimes remarked that Anthony could be a better version of his old man if he wasn't so bad with procrastination. He would wink after such statements, than walk off, picking up a duotang, portfolio, or binder, usually full of paper needing signatures.
Then that fateful event, two nights ago, happened. The thought made Anthony shudder. He was in the very car where his parents died. His Dad slumped onto the steering wheel, blood pouring out of his head. Anthony unbuckled, shrunk to the floor, and prayed that he would be saved. A bang broke through the glass above him, than a women screamed, slowly becoming quieter, until it stopped, with a thump nearby. Nothing happened after that for who knows how long. Than a siren could be heard. It somehow lulled him to sleep.
Fully awake now, he poured some Lucky Charms into a bowl, than some milk. He ate quickly, but not a drop of milk was on his mouth. He dressed up in his fourth best designer suit, favorite tie, and comfiest pants. He had a feeling it was going to be a long day.
Anthony Leavens. World famous philanthropist, doctor of war, and CEO of a weapons manufacturer. The company he ran was still Leavens Corp., but it didn't have the same spirit the one from 10 years ago had. His employees changed every month, older engineers of probably 5 months going away, and newer engineers coming in to work under the great Anthony Leavens!
He was in a convoy, deep in... a Asian desert.
"Where are we again?" The company owner asked, still holding true to his mannerisms.
The soldier responded with a grunt, "Afghanistan."
"'K, thanks." The Jeep rumbled across the roughly paved road.
An explosion sounded. The car in front stopped, missing it's front half.
"Mr. Leavens, I'll ask you to get out and take cover!"
"Roger roger." He imitated a Battle Droid from a not-so-classic oldie named, 'Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace', than doing what the military person asked.
"Uh..." Anthony turned his head slowly. A sphere with his company's logo landed right next to the billionaire. "Nononononononononononon--"
The world went dark.
So, Comments and Criticism are appreciated.
