Unapologetic Continual Troublemaker!
The last of his race, Deadline stood watch over the galaxy, waiting to intervene when he witnessed the beginnings of the kind of extinction event that had wiped out his species. One fateful day he foresaw such a fate for a distant planet, Earth. He set out to save the planet by attempting to destroy it, hoping to unite humanity in a common cause.
On Earth, Visionary, given psychic powers by U.S. Government experiments on her as a child, had a vision of Deadline's approach, which would spell disaster for the Earth. If he wasn't stopped, the Earth would be driven back into the dark ages, or worse. She gathered a team comprised of herself, Haka, a Maori warrior returned from the dead and dedicated to preserving the Earth and its people, and Omnitron-X, a rebuilt version of the deadly villain Omnitron, returned from the future to help humanity instead of trying to destroy it.
Together they traveled to Wagner Mars Base, a hub of interplanetary research, to intercept and destroy Deadline and save the Earth.
A vicious battle ensued. Both sides took plenty of damage, but the real issue for the heroes was that Deadline was rapidly destroying Wagner Mars Base, ripping it to pieces around them. If they couldn't finish him off before the base was destroyed, they would all be killed and Deadline would continue on to rain destruction on the Earth.
With only one turn before Deadline completed the destruction of the base, the heroes managed to reduce him to 4 hp. Unfortunately not enough to defeat him. With one action left for Omnitron-X before defeat was upon them, the team held their breath.
Omnitron-X has a power that can reveal the top card of any deck and put it into play.
Hoping to rely on Haka's abilities to cause damage, the team drew the top card from his deck, needing at least 4hp damage dealt to win.
In a final, blinding rampage, Haka defeated Deadline and his two remaining devices, damaging his compatriots in his fury. It was enough. The heroes stood battered but victorious in what remained of Wagner Mars Base. Earth was safe, for now.
Great finish. Well told.
