"Great, now we got more robots running rampant in the city!" Clay said as he saw the robot monkey made its appearance "As if that Kouha wasn't arrogant enough with his shiny suit of armor." "Are you jealous, old man?" Alex said, floating lazily on his hover board "What was that boy?! Me, jealous, to a spoiled brat like that?! Do I need to clunk you!?" "No, Sir. I am just saying, if I had the parts I could build you a suit of armor too you know." Clayton gave him a look of disdain "I'll stick to having just and Iron Arm for now, don't even want to think what I would be like trapped in a metal case when we are on patrol, speaking of which"
The cyborg dove from the building just beside the bank, it wasn't that tall but just tall enough to the point where the screamers didn't notice the vigilantes till it was too late. It didn't hurt having the monkey robot distract them, but it held the draw back of wrecking the city if let roam free. Clay crashed his cybernetic fist into the hood of the armored van, busting the engine block beneath it and shattering the wind shield. The rear tires floated in mid-air with the force of the punch bending the van's frame and utterly wrecking the vehicle. Alex followed up by swooping in behind the terrified thugs, using his hover board to pulse a powerful shock wave that forced a number of the gang members either to their knees or flat on their faces.
"This can be done the easy way" Clay blasted a screamers fingers off as he pulled his gun "Or my way"
Three others tried to repeat their friends mistake, they too would be missing a few digits when the police arrived to take them away. One of the regulars that worked with Clay approached, watching the robots in the distance carefully "You Supers, just come out of the wood work now don't ya."
"Well there is a difference between us and them" "What's that?" "We did this by choice" Once the gangsters were all finally taken away, Clayton and Alex made their way home where Clay felt it was best to start a private discussion.
"They aren't better than you, Kid." "What'dya mean by that?" "Just think you should always keep in mind that no matter what powers they have, you are just as good as they are." "Where'd this come from? Do you think I feel like a loser because THEY were attacked by a giant robot monkey and I wasn't?" "No, I just know that you will want to compete to prove your worth. I am saying you don't need to and that you should know" Alex hadn't thought of it at all, challenging one of the Doctume sisters sounded like a thrill ride with his inventions being tested against super powers.
It started a spark in Alexander's eyes that Clay caught quickly, he didn't reinforce what he said about not challenging the girls. In truth Clay wanted nothing more than to see Alexander wipe the floor with the super powered brats, they're asking for it he thought to himself.
