The Underworld (Mephisto’s Realm):
After some complex spells, and tricking some power hungry and other...Less than reputable people out of their astral energy Mephisto has gathered enough power to revive his son Blackheart. Although not without great pain...For Blackheart.
“AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!” screams Blackheart as he returns to life.
“Ah Welcome home son, so nice of you to visit .” says Mephisto sarcastically “What’s the matter, have you no greeting for your father?”
“Aaaaaaarrrrrrrgggh!” moaned Blackheart still in agony.
“There’s a good boy,” says Mephisto his voice still ringing with sarcasm.” How are things in your part of the underworld?”
“Ghoo...st Ri...Rider” groans Blackheart.
“Oh yes, I remember” says Mephisto the sarcasm in his voice now turning to anger. “destroyed you and took control of you portion of the Underworld. Now evil people who fall into that part of the Underworld DO NOT GET TORTURED!”
“I...can…” begins Blackheart
“Can what?” interrupts Mephisto “Get destroyed by Ghost Rider again.”
“No.” says Blackheart “I can get my portion of the Underworld back.”
“Ah.” says Mephisto , “I see Ghost Rider did not kill your ambition when he killed you”
“As soon as I am strong again,” says Blackheart “I will reclaim my realm.”
“I am pleased to hear this my son .” says Mephisto “I will assist you in this undertaking”
“Why?” asks Blackheart
“You are my son,” says Mephisto “Why would I not help you?”
“Father,” says Blackheart “not even you are that skillful of a liar.”
“Very perceptive my son” says Mephisto “I trained you well, if Ghost Rider is left unchecked he may try to conquer my realm next.”
“And….” prods Blackheart
“And if that arrogant buffoon Hades hears about this,” says Mephisto getting annoyed “I’ll be a laughing stock throughout all the Underworlds.”
“I knew that their had to be an ulterior motive,” says Blackheart smugly “What is your plan Father?”
“Ghost Rider is seldom in the part of the underworld that he controls‘ says Mephisto, “so if we attack while he is away taking back what he took from you will be simple”
“You mean that Ghost Rider leaves his section of the Underworld unguarded while he is away?” asks Blackheart
“No,” says Mephisto “But it will be deserted after I unleash the Cask Of Ancient Winters upon it”
“That will extinguish the flames of the Underworld” says Blackheart
“Yes,” says Mephisto “As well as drive those loyal to Ghost Rider away”
“Leaving me to rule a frozen kingdom Father?” asks Blackheart.
“No my son.” says Mephisto “A frozen Underworld is unsuitable for capturing and holding astral energy, Once we have regained control I will ignite the fires of your underworld again.”
“Excellent plan Father.” says Blackheart ’but how did you acquire the Cask Of Ancient Winters?”
“My most capable minion stole it from Asgard while the Asgardian army was distracted battling General Brimstone and my demon hoards.” says Mephisto
“When did this happen Father?” asks Blackheart.
“Six days from now,” says Mephisto “When your strength has fully returned.”
“Oh.” says Blackheart sounding somewhat annoyed.
“Oh come now Blackheart,” says Mephisto “you didn’t really think I revived you because I enjoy your company now did you?”
Asgard (Six days later):
Thor has nearly completed his morning patrol and is about to head out to the Rainbow Bridge to make sure everything is all right on that front when suddenly he hears the sound of the Gjallarhorn.
Something dares to attack the realm eternal! thinks Thor Who’er it is that shall soon learn the folly of their actions.
In moments Thor arrives at the Rainbow Bridge and sees an innumerable army of demons attempting to get past Heimdall the guardian of the Rainbow Bridge, any demon that gets within range of Heimdall’s sword is quickly cut down.
Thor then shouts.
"AWAY FOUL DEMONS! NONE MAY ATTACK THE HALLOWED HALLS OF ASGARD!!!!!!"
Thor then summons lightning bolt after lightning bolt , which strike down many a demon giving Thor room to land.
“Tis good to see you Thor,” says Heimdall as he cleaves a demon’s skull with his sword “Twould seem that we have uninvited guests.”
“Aye,” says Thor as he brings his hammer down upon another demon skull, “What say you we teach them some manners?”
“Aye!” say Heimdall as he runs yet another demon through with his sword.
Thor quickly shrugs off several demons that had tried to swarm over him and the whirs his hammer over his head creating a massive wind storm that literally blows away scores upon scores of demons. Yet Thor’s control over his power is so great that even though the demons around them are tossed away like paper in tornado force winds Heimdall dose not even slightly loose his balance.
The battle rages for ten minutes with Thor and Heimdall giving no ground ,but neither gaining any against the seemingly endless demon army.
Then a hail of arrows rains down upon the demon army, and the sound of battle cries fill the air as Balder The Brave leads the warriors of Asgard in to the fray...and slowly… grudgingly the tied of battle begins to turn. In the mist of battle Thor and Balder stand side by side as demon after demon fall before their might and Balder says.
“These demons do not seem to be of the sort underlings Loki would’st use.”
“Aye,” says Thor “Theses be the servants of, Hades, or mayhaps Mephisto.”
“Neither of which are know for frontal assaults .” says Balder”
“Aye,” says Thor, “Masters of deceit they both are.”
At that point realization comes to Thor, and He says to Balder.
“I must return to Asgard, You will lead the battle in my sted.” says Thor “I will give you an opening to rally the troops.”
Before Balder can react Thor punches a demon in front of him square in the face (Shattering the demons teeth and causing a domino effect with the demons behind the one that was punched) and flies free of the battle. Thor then lands behind the Asgardian army and once again summons the wind only this time creating a wall of wind between the two armies. Balder then holds his enchanted sword Frey above his head as he addresses the army of Asgard.
“WARRIORS OF ASGARD, TIS TIME WE SEND THOSE DEMONS BACK TO FOUL PITTS FROM WENCE THEY DID EMERGE…FOR HONOR, FOR GLORY…”
“FOR ASGARD!!!!!” Shout the Asgardians as they join Balder’s battle cry”
As the Army of Asgard is about to charge Thor causes his wall of wind to disperse, only directing the force of the wind outwards. Knocking back the demon army and giving the Asgardian army more ground to build momentum for their charge. Thor then heads back to Asgard, knowing that he is leaving the battle in capable hands.
Having yet to find the Cask Of Ancient Winters Blackheart is beginning to grow frustrated.
Where can it be, Thinks Blackheart I’ve searched , The Armory, The Weapons Forge, and even the Asgardian Barracks. Yet it is nowhere to be seen. Does it even exist?
At that point Blackheart sees the Hall Of Asgardian Artifacts
This place may have what I’m looking for thinks Blackheart as he begins head for the door.
Suddenly a bolt of lightening strikes the ground just in front of him, Blackheart Jumps back, turns his head skyward and sees Thor about to land several yards behind him.
“Demon cur, says Thor with disgust, “Thou would’st dare to defile Asgard with thy loathsome presence.”
“My Father has need of something hear,” says Blackheart “Won’t he be pleasantly surprised when I present to him your astral energy as well!”
At that point Blackheart shoots a beam of black energy at Thor. Thor spins his hammer in front of him and deflects Blackheart’s blast.
“Take my astral energy, “ says Thor with anger “I say thee nay!”
Both Thor and Blackheart then take fighting stances.
So who wins the son of Mephisto, or the son of Odin?
