“We need to help him.” Batman said as Doom held him back. “This is a fight he needs to do on his own. But if you insist, send the girl for support.”
Batman sighed. Doom was right. This was a personal battle. Ebon and Gear looked at Static and laughed. “Just give up buddy. You know you don't have it in you to hurt me.” Gear said.
“I don't, but he sure does!” Static said as Hotstreak threw a fireball at Gear. Ebon morphed his body into a force field and blocked it with ease.
He then delivered a punch to Hotstreak, knocking him down. As he turned back into human form, the two villains approached Static.
“Just wear the ring! We won't even have to kill you to bring you to our side.” Ebon said.
Static stood his ground in front of the injured Hotstreak. “I'm afraid you don't have any other option.” He said boldly. Gear took out a spare ring. “That's a shame.
” He said as he prepared to attack.
Suddenly the young Katana was directly over his head, performing a backflip. With a slash of her sword, she sliced the extra ring, and the one on Gears hand, both in half.
Gear converted back to normal, and quickly fainted. Ebon was furious. But while his attention was on Katana, Hotstreak had gotten back on his feet.
Creating a bright burst of fire, he stood next to Static. They shot at the same time, combining their blasts into a single attack which completely dissolved Ebon.
“We don't have much time before he recovers! Get in the Jet quickly!”
Batman shouted. The teens carried Gear to the vehicle and piled in.
It was time to regroup at the Batcave to figure out a plan.
