Ira walked into a room on the Helicarrier. The room was dark, all he could see was a chair with a desk in front of it. He sat down on a chair in the and, without warning, around him, computer monitors appeared, with the silhouettes of people on them. "Agent Smith. How goes your training?" asked a womans voice.
"It concluded at 21:00 yesterday. Although, i question why you need me to learn Child Psychology... Don't get me wrong, i am willing to learn anything, but really? When am i going to need Child Psychology in S.H.I.E.L.D.?" he laughed a little, a part of him knew exactly what was coming. Some form of babysitting mission, but he prefered to live in blissful ignorance.
"Excellent, On the table in front of you is profiles on 5 new candidates." said a mans voice.
"Let me guess... Kids?"
"Very astute, Agent Smith." said a different womans voice. Ira picked up the envelope and 5 pieces of paper fell out the bottom. Each had a photo on it. a monitor in front of him began showing video footage of the people on the paper.
"Alexander Matthews, Male, Age 13, Born to the wealthy Matthews family, he was reported missing 9 years ago, since then, he has had multiple encounters with police." a video, obviously from a Police car dash-cam showed Alex being bent over the hood of the Police car in front of it and having hand-cuffs being put on him, the moment the cop turned his back to talk to his partner, the cuffs disappeared in a puff of smoke. Almost immediately, the officers tried to restrain him, the car underneath him turned to liquid as well. This caught the police offguard, they drew their guns, but Alex was quick to grab them, the guns melted all over their hands and then solidified, turning them into makeshift Handcuffs. Before Alex ran off-screen. "He appears to have the power to change certain materials between their 3 main states without changing their temporature." it said.
"You think it could work on... It?" Asked Ira.
"Your armour is of unknown makeup, whether his abilities will work on it is unknown... though we are confident that he will not be able to."
"Comforting..." he replied. "Alright, let's move on." the next file came up.
"Vladimir Pekorav, Male, Age 14, Although little is known about his past, we believe he was the only survivor of the Pekorav family who were murdered by Baker Brown, a notable serial arsonist who as found murdered shortly after the death of the Pekorav family, we believe that the boy may be his killer."
"Killed a serial arsonist in self defense? Not exactly something people will cry over." A video appeared, obviously captured on a phone. The person carrying it, running to a window of an appartment and looking down into an alleyway. The camera caught a video of a woman being mugged. the person with the video camera threw a shoe at one of the attackers. It hit one of them "FUCKING BITCH!!!" he yelled before pulling out a gun and firing up at the person with the phone, the person fell backwards, however, the video kept recording. "And who the fuck are you!? Waste the bastard" a barrage of gunshots was heard, as the person recording got to their feet, then all he could hear was screaming. Then silence, the cameraman ran to the window again to see the muggers dead around a kid with elongated, red fingers. "Hey kid, What the fuck?" yelled the Cameraman. The Kid looked up before grabbing the dropped loot and disappearing in a puff of smoke. "Wait... Thank you..." said the woman who was being mugged. the video ended just as the cameraman called to someone called Susan. "We believe his powers are his sharp claws and the ability to teleport." it said.
"He saves people and takes their stuff... Probably to get a decent meal... Next."
"Nathan McLean, Male, age 15, born into an ordinary family, at age 7, he was diagnosed with ADHD, his brother died when he was 14. Shortly afterwards was when his powers began to surface." A video came up. a burning building, “Come on, where’s the Fire Brigade… Where’s Iron Man?” suddenly a blur whizzed past the screen, and in the next 10 seconds, several people seemed to just appear as the blur zipped in and out of the building, dropping them off, after the last person was safe, the blur stopped to reveal a kid with a hoodie pulled down so they couldn’t see his face, he looked around, obviously paniced before becoming the blur again and disappearing.
“Let me guess, he’s really fast?” asked Ira.
“Indeed. We were unable to get a full guage on his speed, but it is believe that during this particular incident, he clocked in at 751mph.”
“Wow… Finding him is going to be a pain in the ass. Who’s next?” he asked.
“Trianna Mysteria, Female, Age 13.”
“Of course.” Muttered Ira “Can’t do this without our token chick.”
“We weren’t able to find much on her past and what we could find we could barely verify, Her parents were killed in a Car Crash 3 years ago and she was diagnosed with Dissociative identity disorder. After that, she dropped off the radar. We don’t have any video footage, but one of our agents has had a run in with her, we found that she is able to split into 3 people.”
“Alright… I’m interested to meet her then.” He said. “So, who’s our last candidate?”
“HOLY FUCK WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN FEEDING HIM?” yelled Ira as a guy with muscles that would make Arnold Schwarzenegger feel inadequate.
“If we may move on… Hercules Lamprou, Male, Age 16. Again, with this one, little is known about him, his background seems fairly standard, nothing out of the ordinary… Except for this.” a video appeared. Hercules was sweeping up around his parents cart, after sweeping up everything into a pile, he looked around, then picked up the van in one hand and swept the pile of rubbish under it. he laughed before walking away. “Holy shit, I told you that guy was nuts.” Said the camera-man.
“Wow… Alright, so you want me to get them? Or do you want me to just look after them.”
“Simply put, we are putting them together in a team… We need to make sure that beings of their power doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.”
“Ok… Can I refuse? Because I am not the one for this.”
“No you can’t.” Ira got up and rubbed his brow... Then grabbed the envelope from the table and walked out. As he exited the room, through a different door than he had entered in. He saw that behind a two way mirror, was all of the kids. “Oh fuck…” he said. Another Agent was in the room with him. “Don’t worry, they are sedated at the moment.” He then watched as they started to come to.
“I can only imagine what they are going to do.” He opened the door and walked inside and sat down. He had no idea what he was going to say to them.
