*I make that look easy, I mean for something without two-wheels on the ground.*
The black tights clad man was running down the streets faster than any human could, he was struggling just to stay up. At this speed it was difficult for him to keep up with his feet, or his feet to keep up with him; he had very little adherence and with that much momentum dodging obstacles was a delicate maneuver.

So focused was he on not face-planting into the floor that he only noticed the car upfront when its driver hit the brakes at the last moment. He let himself drop, pushed off and gathered his legs under him, barely landing on his feet and about to fall over when he realized another car was coming up right behind the previous, moment at which he managed to take off into a somersault, his body straight as an 'I' to land on his back and getting back up immediately.
He had already recovered all his speed when he reached the crossroad.

*90 degrees turn, odd to this didn't come up in the training... This seems wide enough... First slow down.*
He slid his feet perpendicularly to his momentum and fell on his side almost shredding his costume but managed to get back on his feet without stopping and avoided crashing into an impromptu truck by running on its side.
Whether it showed or not, he really had no idea what he was doing and everyone of this close calls seemed like a miracle to him. Gathering speed he just as clumsily managed to avoid colliding with any of the ambulances or people  that formed a barrage at the corner of the 65th and Central Park West and dove into the trees.

"Did you see that? John Stephens at the medical hub near Central Park where we just just saw a black silhouette with feets on fire just run across the encampment."

The soot stained coloss stared at the journalist for a moment after the ghostly apparition made its ultimatum before turning his attention toward it. He was well aware of the people hiding behind the trees but ignored them.

He raised his casually opened toward the specter, the flesh of his arm took a dull red glow and a cloud of black smoke rose from it. He shifted his foot as the same started flowing from his pants. After a second he pushed off and abruptly leapt foward with his fist clenched.

As the man clearly shifted himself to attack, she did likewise as a pair of legs formed out of her wispy tail. Planting herself on the ground, the specter mimicked his stance and leapt forward simultaneously to charge. Just before meeting, Jen raised her other hand and suddenly did appear a massive shield in a flash of light. As the man crashed against it with a fist, the shield help for only moments before cracking and shattering apart however she swiftly circled about it and threw out a slash across his arm intent on amputation. A slight pause, and a grim look crossing her face, before the pair took action again as the giant swung him arm about and knocked away the sword that had simply halted it's advance against his skin, failing to do much more than deliver the shallowest of cuts. The apparition was likewise tossed back, strangely enough, but lifted into the air to catch herself rather than hitting the ground.

Settling back on her feet, Jen gave a frown and reversed her grip on the sword, tossing it into the grass blade first where it stuck. "So I see. Mayhaps a simple sword won't serve well in your execution. This encounter is going to end up more painful than it could have for you, then. Feel free to surrender at your will" No new weapon appeared for her as she finished her short speech, perhaps waiting again for the enemy to make the first move.

Nathan only arrived just in time to see the first blow landing.  Smashing a shield to smithereens? Yeah that didn't seem completely human. The thought of it having more powers than one only made Nathan wanting its corpse even more. He had prepared himself as well as he could from the moment he had walked out of his car; He had been releasing explosive gasses which was forming itself like an invisible wall at a rather safe distance in front of him. If the giant were to extend his fiery paws towards him, he'd probably be in for a little surprise. Nathan of course had no idea how effective it would be on him, but life's a gambit.

Of course, the giant's little ghostly foe had not gone unnoticed. However, Nathan was quite the non-believer. Maybe it was some kind of special power to turn into a spectral state? It mattered not, for they would be on the same side despite their different motives.  His grin widened as he walked onto the battlefield. "Fancy words, but I doubt they'll prove to be any use."  he snickered a little "I hope you don't mind me joining in."  Nathan stood still about ten meters away on the right side of his target. The more he looked at the building of a man in front of him, the more he wondered: would that guy even FIT in that tiny car of his? Well, only one way to find out.

The cloud of explosive gass was placed neatly between them now, like a trap for a wild animal. "Come at me, hotshot."

“Yeah, about leaving…I kind of never got around to it.” Ray said in response to the girl’s questions, implying that he had already been in Sheep Meadows when the ‘terrorist’ had attacked. The implication was deliberate. Even though she wore a mask, Ray could see the shrewdness in her eyes and she decided what Ray was and whether he was a threat or not. He raised his hands slowly in front of him with the palms towards her; the universal sign of non-aggression. “Look, I’m not any kind of threat to you. Not like that big dude over there.” He nodded his head towards the ‘terrorist’ and as he did, a resounding crack echoed around the area.

Ray snapped his head in the sounds direction, temporarily forgetting about the girl in front of him, to see the ghostly figure in combat with the Terrorist. The crack had been a shield, or something familiar, breaking into pieces under a heavy attack. As Ray watched, the Ghost and the Terrorist conversing, another figure ran into the fray. This one was a man of no particular note, although he was taller than most but small in comparison to the Terrorist. Ray decided this one was a little bit crazy as his posture indicated he was challenging the Terrorist.

As if suddenly realising that he had a woman stood in front of him, Ray turned his head quickly to face her. “Ok, it seems like you want to go up against that guy and if you’re crazy enough to do that, I’m not going to stop you. I came here for my own reasons, so you go right on ahead.” Ray kept his hands raised in front of him and didn’t move a muscle. However, deep within the centre of his arms, unnoticeable to the human eye, he was already activating his powers; ready to use them should the woman attempt to attack them. The sword would be his first goal, he just hoped the heat of his powers could melt through it; otherwise he’d end up losing an arm.

Lukas kept running and running seemingly without getting winded at all and felt something calling, pushing him to Sheep Meadows but it wasn't a need to get to the hospital, no it was something else, something dangerous and exciting...he couldn't quite explain it himself, the only thought on his mind was "I must get there faster". Unbeknownst to Lukas his speed grew even more, now he was sprinting at the speed that even Usain Bolt would be jealous of and surprisingly that didn't tire him more than before in fact he felt felt even stronger, his vision got more focused, the reaction time improved, he didn't have to go around obstacles or slow down to go through tighter or more complicated gaps and even if he accidentally hit something, he didn't feel that it had any real impact.

The closer Lukas got to the park the more destruction, the more dead bodies he saw. He hasn't seen any dead people besides the ones at the funerals in reality before, he was sickened by it but the thought of getting to the park was still the most important thing in his head, only the upcoming danger was certain now, and still he kept going.

Soon the destination was near. Lukas noticed 3 figures in the distance and when he was near enough he called for their attention, in retrospect it was a foolish thing to do but at the time he didn't realize what was waiting for him and the entire world. "Hey! Hey you three!" he shouted. The big bulky guy looked at Lukas and extended his arm towards him. All the danger alerts in Lukas's body went off and without stopping he jumped with the best of his ability to the side without realizing why. Something exploded in front of Lukas or at least that was what he thought, if he hadn't jumped to the side he would have been dead. The explosion sent him flying a good distance, before hitting a car he noticed that he flew past two other people standing with some distance in front of each other. Now he felt the pain and if he was a regular human if not dead then most of his bones would have been crushed. Of course the explosion caused few serious burns on one side of his body, not deadly but not something you can just brush off. His head was ringing and spinning, the vision was blurry and again the pain was nothing to laugh about.

While Lukas was trying to get a grip on which side was up and which side was down, he had no time to notice that most of his body was covered in a dark, paper thin material except for the parts that were directly effected by the explosion and the crash into the car.

When the blow unexpectedtly went through the spectral knight, the man almost lost his balance. Intangibility was not in the list of things he was prepared for but, notwithstanding the fight was not over as he had more as he had more than mere kicks and punches in his arsenal, if they didn't work then something else would. Standing still for a moment, the smoke oozing from his body thickened and spread to all of his now more brightly glowing limbs.
As the process escalated small flames not much higher than an inch engulfed them and blood tainted his eyes even redder than they just were.

When the reptilian man approached him he did not pay him any attention. Taunts were lost on his blank mind and all that seemed to register in his mind was destroying the ghost standing in his way.
His body haloed in flames, he rushed at the ghost with greater speed and power than before.

Bursting out of the trees at inhuman speed, a dark figured dived to ward the speeding giant and tackled him in the mid section. The man was barely more than 6 feet tall but his momentum was enough to knock his opponent off his feet.

The man moved up on his knees above the lying giant, holding his shoulder in pain, seemingly not realizing that it was on fire and glanced at the people around him.

"Oh great, is that a bad guy reunion? My first day on the job and I get the league of..."
The man's sarcastic words were not said lightheartedly and conveyed genuine discontent. The tone of his voice carried a certain gravity that signified he was not here to play hero.

Turning his head over to his shoulder, he noticed the flames and quickly extinguished them with a few taps.
Meanwhile, the giant stood up behind him, grabbed him and slammed him to the ground only to kneel down and lift him up by the throat with a single hand, choking him.
Bringing his  hands to his neck to try and break free from the hand's clutch and found found himself unable to loosen the monster's grip.

Jen's attention split now to the scaly man who casually sauntered onto the scene of battle, however paying him little mind after the prompt attempt at mere provocation against her foe. Suicide was not a decision that was up to her to decide for the man, so let him end himself as he may. The giant likewise appeared to do naught more than ignore the petty taunts tossed his way and Jen prepared herself for the next encounter as her foe dramatically powered himself up for the expected exchange.

A blur then burst onto the scene, but just as quickly made a prompt exit as it was suddenly flung out of the picture by his own speed and the momentum of an explosion? Nonetheless, the next moment the blur became a man looking wounded after apparently having just tried to run this enemy down. She took a half step instinctively forward as to go aid the wounded man, but caught herself as yet another distraction opted to interrupt the flow of battle by smashing itself into the now flaming man with more success than the wounded man had had a moment before!

"While voluntary aid against the common foe is thankful, I must question the effectiveness of the tactics, or rather the appeared lack thereof, of merely throwing yourselves to the fire! One can't learn of a mist--" Cutting her words short, the ghostly woman leapt forward, reaching out a hand and appearing to unsheath a new sword out of thin air. Substantially larger than the longsword before, she adjusted her grip upon what was now a heavy looking claymore. Not more than moments had the distance been covered, her form partially lifting off the ground into flight and conducting a full circle vertical swing to throw as much momentum behind the blade of which came down yet again directly onto the flaming giant's arm which now held the latest party crasher around the neck.

The cut to the giant's arm was shallow but the spasm it caused him was enough to loosen his grip of the costume clad man who pried its hand from his neck and with a kick to the cuts sent it flying six yards away. Placing his hands behind his head he did a kick up that lifted several feet into the air before landing on his feet, awkwardly standing there. Holding his throat, he coughed a few times before talking again.
"Thank you, Pinkeyewoman. Great job on the costume  by the way, for a moment I thought I'd be the only one to come dressed up party. That would have been awkward... By the way, why does it smell like someone passed some serious gas?"
Looking around and spotting the reptilian he whispered to the ghost with a hand on the side of his mouth:
"So, what's the deal on Madame Vastra over there? She a good or a bad guy?"
The giant had already gotten back on his feet while he was talking and seemed even more stoically frenetic than earlier. Pointing his hand toward him he tried to use another of his spontaneous combustion routines. The costumed man felt the attack hit him and screamed in horror.
"HAAAAAAA!"
The scoldering heat spread through his body in an invigorating rush, his mind felt quicker, his senses sharper and his muscles stronger.
"... oh... no, wait, I'm good. Anyway, that was just rude."
Clenching his fist he charged the giant, aiming for his knees, something about "keeping him off his feet".

This was turning into one crazy situation. She gave the man in front of her one last look up and down before lowering her sword. He didn't seem to be with the big guy, he didn't have a crazy look about him.
"You should leave now if you have no intention of helping but we've got to take this guy down" She looked back just in time to see the newest arrival get consumed by flames. "At least I hope we can..."
Grimacing behind her mask she sheathed her sword. She really needed to help with the attack. She sprinted to a nearby park bench and grabbed onto the metal back with one hand and one of the wooden panels with the other. She pulled out the metal while pushing off the wood.

Gathering the liquid metal between her hands she turned half into a Naginata and the other half into a belt made of metal blocks to use later. Gripping the Naginata with both hands, she turned on the magnets in her gloves and charged at the fiery man. She began a flurry of quick thrusts, forcing him to block with his arms and step back. The thrusts only managed to create tiny cuts along his muscular arms. Changing tactics, she brought the blade down vertically aiming for his torso. He easily grabbed the blade, knocking Sarah slightly off balance. His arm and hand started to glow brighter as the heat surrounding him increased. Shit. The heat easily transferred into the bare metal weapon. Turning off the magnets, she quickly released her weapon and jumped back. With a maniacal smile, the muscle man threw the Naginata aside and strode toward Sarah. Hurriedly, she touched the metal belt and created a plain steel tower shield. She'd seen what had happened to the ghost girls shield but heck it was better than being hit directly.

(Kinda half finished but I really need to sleep)

"God dammit this hurts!" His vision got clear enough to see what was happening. Lukas looked at the group of people he saw before, now it was not 3 but 5 people. "What the hell?" he asked himself. Lukas saw an explosion happening in front of a man who appeared to not be affected by it at all, a woman in medieval looking armor wielding a giant sword, another woman now attacking the giant with a spear looking weapon and a green looking dude standing to the side. Of course he noticed the big man too, Lukas didn't really understand what was happening, but it was obvious that the 4 people were against the man who attacked him before.

He tried standing up but was immediately reminded of the damage he suffered. "Aaagh! Fu.ck this hurts...wait what's this?!" Lukas just now noticed his body covered in the dark material, he touched it and it felt hard, he couldn't tell what material it was. On a closer inspection Lukas noticed that the dark material was divided into sections: some bigger, some smaller and some spots where the skin was still visible were being covered up by this new material.

Lukas heard a loud sound coming from the battle. His focus was again on the enemy. He again tried to get closer but the pain was always accompanying every movement. The man frightened Lukas, he wasn't a scaredy cat but he wasn't stupid either, he knew that this was something extremely dangerous.

"Having a little problem are we?" - a voice said. "What? Where are you?" - Lukas shouted. "No need to scream, after all I'm inside your head". "What...the...fu.ck?" "Would you like some help? After all I can't let you go and die so soon since infusing someone does take time". "Infusing? Who are you?!" "Again no need to shout, for now let's just say that I'm a friendly helper...so would you like some help?" "Help? And how would you help me?" "How about I show you a bit more of what you can do with your powers? And don't worry the first time is free". Lukas didn't really had a clear mind at the moment and rashly agreed. "Good...enjoy it while it lasts." And then the voice was gone, Lukas felt something leaving him, not exactly sure what but it just felt like his mind was clearer or something like that.

The pain was slowly going away and the armor around legs and arms got thicker, not by much but still it was thicker than before. Lukas decided to join the battle, even no longer fearing the man. Now with a better understanding of the situation Lukas was on full alert as he dashed into the battle. After the giant man smashed the metal shield Lukas saw an opportunity to strike. The man's power was big but he wasn't really that fast and left a lot of openings. Lukas dived to the side of the man and made an uppercut that connected squarely with the jaw. Lukas wasn't used to fighting or even talking to a person of this size, but he managed to pull off the attack. The punch sent the giant's head flying back, but Lukas felt much more recoil than he was supposed to have. This made him realize two more things: 1) the giant was not only really strong but also very tough and 2) Lukas had more power than what his joints could comfortably handle so that meant he couldn't do this many times without rest. Even though this revelation complicated things, Lukas didn't wait and drilled a knee to the man's liver. It was obvious that it did damage, but clearly not enough because the enemy swung his arm at the same time and blew Lukas 2 meters away. He blocked the swing with his arm guard but it still hurt.

Frank quickly regathered his thoughts.

“If it’s already began I might as well get prepared so that I can minimise the damage as much as possible”

Hurdling himself into the crowd, Frank struggled to push himself through the fleeing people.  After sometime of shoving and bumping he finally managed to reach his dorm. Inside he found his circus outfit. He hurriedly slipped into it; trying to think of how he should approach this situation.

“First I need to figure out where it’s coming from”

He switched on his tv and after flicking over some channels he finally got what he was looking for.

“……orning a man, presumably a terrorist, was sighted in Sheep Meadows. He is probably the one responsible for the explosions that have been occurring the past few hours. So John, what do you make of this?”

By the last sentence Frank was already at the door attaching his face mask.  Within seconds, as his door swung back muffling the sound from the tv, he was gone almost as if he blended in with the crowd.

His next appearance was in the middle of the soon to be infamous street. Sprinting along it, his outfit made him stand out like sore thumb.

“This isn’t good at all. It sounds like I’m dealing with a pyromaniac. I have to think of countermeasures but nothing comes to mind. I need more information.”

Frank swerves into one of the streets. The streets are absent of sound, sirens lightly echoing from the barricade on the far end. Frank approaches the Sheep Meadow plain from the back of the area the terrorist supposedly began his march. Breaking into the plain Frank comes to a gradual halt.

“I see, there’re already people trying to take him out. This will give me the chance to analyse his capabilities. This is good.”

Frank comes down to one knee, hoping to decrease his presence as much as possible, observing the situation with the utmost prudence.

"Well, I think I have delayed long enough", Samir read one last time his notebook.
"
Powers: inhuman strength, inhuman body resistance, melting - extremely hot fire?
Weaknesses: Slow, looks crazy enough to be dumb, 5 others against him
"
Samir hid his notebook near a tree he marked with a cross, then joined the group.
He created some water, shaped it into a spike then removed all the heat from it, creating an ice spike thirty cm long.
As soon as he finished and took the ice spike with his right hand, some guy in armor who were fighting with his punches and kicks got blown away. Samir used this opportunity to run at the back of the coloss, and holding the spike against him, he released all the kinetic energy he had stored inside the grey ring on his right hand.
About one fourth of the spike went through his foe before it broke. He staggered a little, then turned and looked with glowing eyes full of fury at Samir. He extended his arm and his hand started glowing.
"Oh crap"
Samir frantically scrambled out of the way, putting his left hand in front of him and focusing desperately on his now mauve ring, trying to absorb as much heat as possible from the brute's arm.
It wasn't enough. Soon the ring took on a lavender color and stopped switching color, Samir's focus was completely destroyed as he realized he had reached the ring's limit.
"Oh crap".
The coloss arm suddenly glowed fiercely, and with a smile, released his power.

Jen meant to respond to the thanks given to her, but the man rambled on about costumes and smells before jumping right back into the fray, leaving her floating with not much to go off of. Hanging back, she merely looked on as each of these strange folk threw themselves haphazardly into the fray. "This is just reckless chaos..." she spoke to herself aloud.

At the least they weren't leaving themselves open to anything overly lethal yet. Well, except for the one who just ran in with some sharp ice and pierced the man without following up his attack and was about to probably be....

Returning from the sidelines, the ghost swiftly flew to Samir's side and them promptly into it as she shoved him out of the flaming giant's immediate proximity just as the air around the space he had just been occupying, now taken up by Jen, lit up with a heated explosion! As it cleared however, the apparition was no where to be seen.
