Scream and Shout
-I cannot believe we now have two Spider-Men!- J. Jonah Jameson exclaimed, looking through the window in his office.
-I am pretty sure one of them is gone for good…- Peter Parker commented.
-How do you know?!- Jameson shook his head. -Now we have twice the threat!-
-Those are minor threats! They are here today, but tomorrow they are not!-
-Maybe because Spider-Man catches them…- Parker muttered.
-No, Mr. Jameson.- He shook his head, looking down at his reports. -We have been interviewing people at the hospital, a nurse called Claire Temple and Shirley Benson, the administrator. None of them saw Brock after the massacre.-
-That’s just too bad. He was the only one who understood Spider-Man’s true nature.-
-I’m going to disagree with you, Mr. Jameson. When Daredevil had just started, many doubted his true allegiance, myself included. I think Spider-Man has established himself as a hero…-
-NO! He is a menace!- Jameson replied furiously. -Now, you three, get out of my office!-
As the three men got out of J.J.J., Peter got a call from Luke Cage.
-Luke, what’s up?-
-We need you here as soon as possible, we have Venom’s opposite here, and he is claiming he wants to “cleanse” the city of symbiotes.-
-Where are you?-
-Hammer Industries Headquarters. The symbiote won’t stop until he gets to the top floor.-
-I’ll be there as soon as possible.- Peter hang up and, excusing himself, fled the Bugle’s office.
-LET ME GET TO TOP FLOOR!- The creature screamed, attacking the heroes. Suddenly, he spotted Spider-Man and turned his attention at him. -YOU! YOU NEED TO BE CLEANSED TOO!-
-Okay, you are nuts, Venom Jr.- Peter shook his head.
-I’M NOT VENOM!!! I’M THE OPPOSITE!!! MY GOAL IS TO DESTROY HIM!!!-
-Are you Reverse-Venom?- Luke Cage asked, punching the symbiote’s chest hard.
-In my opinion, Anti-Venom sounds better.- Parker commented, shooting his webs at the symbiote.
-ANTI-VENOM…- The creature muttered. -I AM ANTI-VENOM!!!- He screamed, extending his tentacles and attacking the four heroes.
-What is this mess?!- Donnie Gill walked down the stairs and was in shock when he saw the fight going on. -Okay, I think I need to suit up.- The teenager got in his cryogenic suit, and started firing ice at the huge creature.
-Blizzard…- Daredevil muttered, looking at the Dark Avenger.
-Just help me stop this… Thing!- The ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy student exclaimed. -What do you want here?!-
-I WANT VENOM!!! I WANT TO KILL VENOM!!!-
-That makes two…- Spider-Man muttered, taking some steps away from the fight. -Guys… We have a common objective… Anti-Venom… Anti-Venom is against Venom… Against the Dark Avengers… So are we…-
-But the Dark Avengers are also against the Anti-Venom… Why should we support the symbiote?- Luke Cage replied as he kept on fighting alongside Blizzard.
-Because he has neutral reasons… He doesn’t want world domination… He doesn’t fight against the Avengers… He feels the need to destroy every symbiote… As ironic as that is.-
-I can’t believe you are really questioning yourself in this matter!- Cage shook his head.
-Don’t stop, Power Man.- Gill looked at the Initiative member.
-I think Spider-Man is right…- Danny stood still, as Anti-Venom started gaining the upper hand against the other three.
-We heard they were looking for us…- Venom smirked.
-VENOM!- Anti-Venom exclaimed, and jumped on the Dark Avenger.
-What do we do now?- Daredevil asked himself, as the two symbiotes fought against each other.
-I think we should side with the Dark Avengers.- Luke Cage muttered.
-Venom has killed innocent people… Anti-Venom just wanted to kill us… Which makes a difference.- Spider-Man commented.
Suddenly, an arrow flew through the room and hit Anti-Venom’s side, before exploding. Everyone turned around and spotted the Dark Avengers: Dark Hawkeye, Dark Ms. Marvel, Ares and Dark Widow. The Dark team immediately started attacking Venom’s opposite, damaging him badly.
-We need to do something!!!- Peter looked at Danny and Matt, but the last one was already taking on his nemesis, Bullseye.
-I’ll take on Dr. Sofen, we need to save Anti-Venom, he is going to get destroyed otherwise.-
-Luke, please!!!- Parker yelled at his teammate, who reconsidered his former thoughts after seeing the violence with which the Dark Avengers attacked the symbiote and decided to take on Ares.
-I guess I have my fellow spider for myself.- Spider-Man smirked, looking at Yelena Belova and shot a web at her, pulling her closer to him.
-Nice to see you, Spider-Man.- She smiled, using her martial arts mastery against the untrained hero. However, he could dodge her strikes using his Spider-Sense and retaliated.
Extremely weakened, Anti-Venom looked up at Venom from the floor and extended his tendrils, successfully cleansing Gargan, whose symbiote vanished.
-WHAT DID HE DO?!- Moonstone looked at Scorpion, who was laying naked on the floor.
The former Venom was suddenly picked up by Anti-Venom, who took him out of the Hammer Facility and eventually deposited him in front of the Police Station.
-Let’s get out of here… They are no match for us without Venom.- Peter Parker smirked, as the heroes left the building.
That evening, the Dark Avengers were gathered by Dell Rusk on the top floor of the Hammer Industries Facility.
-We need to get more members. It is unacceptable that Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Daredevil and a symbiote in white not only defeated you but stole a member from us!!! We need to revert this loss. Forget your fighting sh*t! We need a better team! Look for any kind of villain who wants to join us!-
-I found something.- Ares muttered.
-What is it?-
-The Olympian Gods have been informed that Asgard has faced Ragnarok, brought by a robot of the same name.-
-I found the remains of that being.- The Olympian God of War said, looking at the blue eyes of his leader, as he put the pieces of Thor’s clone on the table.
-Well then… I think we found our first extra member… Dark Thor.- Rusk smirked evilly, looking down at the future Dark Avenger.
