The Wild West. 1845. In a quiet old western town, a battle is about to rage on. Between the forces of Heaven and Hell. At a bar, a beautiful and sexy young lady with long pitch black hair and light brown eyes, wearing an average outfit of that era enters and buys two beers. She then proceeds to look around until she lays eyes on who she was looking for. A tall man, sitting alone at a table. He wore a long scarlet red trenchcoat with a high collar and long shoulders. The coat had 2 little skull emblems at the bottom of the collar. Beneath it he had an outfit that was so tight it looked like his own skin. It was black and had 2 white lines going up from his belt to his chest and sliding back down to his sides. He also wore a large cowboy hat. But most notably was his face. He wore a black face mask with white markings around his eyes. He was Jeremy Winston. Or as the residents of Hell call him, "The Gunslinger Spawn".
??? : *walks over to his table and puts one of the beers on it* I hear y'are the best gunslinger this ol' town ever seen, mister.
Gunslinger Spawn : *grabs the tip of his hat and lifts it up slightly**looks at her with his glowing green eyes* I might just be. What of it?
??? : Aw, no biggie. Just that they found gold up in the ol' Greystone valley mines. But there're dangerous people guarding those mines. I could use a big guy like you to help me out~.
Gunslinger Spawn : Sorry, darling. Not interested.
??? : Really? *smirks and starts lifting up her skirt slowly* Y'sure, mister?
Gunslinger Spawn : ... *sigh* A sleeky one, aren't ya... Fine. Take me to this mine. *grabs the beer and drinks it all up in one shot**slams the pint on the table and stands up*
??? : *smirks**gets up and follows him*
About 30 minutes later at the mines :
Gunslinger Spawn : *arrives on his horse with the lady on his back**gets off**walking and looking around*... Hey, something's not right... There's not a soul here. *looks back at the lady* What the hell's your game, lady?
??? : My game? Heheeh... *closes eyes* You are... *opens them* Hellspawn! *a blinding flash of light strikes her*
Gunslinger Spawn : *covers his face* What the fuck?!
??? : *wearing a silver armor with 2 swords and a pair of earrings that look like the Hellspawn emblem**has markings around her eyes similar to a Spawn but they are black and her eyes are blank white**has a pair of large, shinning angel wings* The game ends with your death by my blades!
Gunslinger Spawn : An Angel? Cute. *pulls out his 2 guns and starts firing at her*
??? : *deflects all the bullets by swinging her swords around rapidly**dashes at him and swings one of her swords at him*
Gunslinger Spawn : *blocks it with one of his guns**after a short struggle the gun gets cut in half* Shit! *leaps back in order to gain some distance*
??? : I hope you're enjoying the game, Hellspawn! It will be your last!
Gunslinger Spawn : Game's not bad. *charges his gun* But I don't like the winged bitch I'm supposed to play with! *fires a large green blast from it*
??? : !! *evades it**the small explosion the blast made when it hit the ground throws her into the sky*
Gunslinger Spawn : I mean don't get me wrong, lady. You're pretty good looking and have a nice pair on your chest. But that ain't meaning that you can gut me up like a pig.
??? : Ugh! Talkative and dirty! I'm going to kill you slowly! *dashes down at him*
Gunslinger Spawn : You misunderstand. *firring bullets* I'm not a dirty man, my dear. Just a silver tongued.
??? : *doging the bullets* Well I can't wait to cut that silver tongue of yours down!! *swings one of her swords down and cuts him on the chest*
Gunslinger Spawn : AGH!! *takes a few steps back and falls in his knees**holding his chest* It burns! Why?! Why isn't it healing?!
??? : Because the only thing that can harm a Hellspawn is a weapon forged in Heaven! It's over now. *raises her sword*
Gunsliger Spawn : Guh! Darn it!!
??? : Heh.. *gets cut on her back* AAAAAAH!!!! *turns around* Who dares?!
Cog : *wearing a Cowboy outfit**has a blade in his right hand* Begone! *swings again but this time he forms a blast of air that blows her away*
??? : Woah!!
Gunslinger Spawn : Howdy, partner! Ugh! *holds his chest*
Cog : No time. Open a portal. She's too strong for us to take on. We need to get back to Hell for your wounds to heal.
Gunslinger Spawn : Very well then. *opens up a portal*
??? : No you don't!! *dashes down at him*
Cog : Go! Go! Go! *pushes him through the portal and jumps in too**portal closes*
??? : *crashes on the ground**stands up* Grr! CURSES!!!
Nearly 200 years have passed since that day. New generations of Hellspawns have emerged. Stronger, smarter, braver. And they too, are targeted by Heaven's Hunters.
Johnny and Elisabeth's appartment, present day :
Elisabeth : *has a cigarette in her hand* W-Wow... So... What you're telling me is that you woke up from that coma thanks to this Symbiotic Suit that bonded with you... Huh... Symbiote... Just like in those Spider-Man comics.
Johnny : *takes a breath from his cigarette**blows out the smoke* Yeah. Exactly like that. Only I have powers beyond anything you can imagine. I can use.. Um... Magic, I guess. Last night I literally created a crate of wine out of thin air.
Elisabeth : Huh. That's impressive. Can you create anything else?
Johnny : I suppose. I don't think I can create money though.
Elisabeth : Nah, not money... Hmmm... Ah! *takes a cup from a closet* Can you make another can just like this?
Johnny : I can try.
Johnny closes his eyes and calls out for his suit. It is a sight that Elisabeth will never ever forget. The sight of a transformation. Man and Symbiote combine. She stares infront of her as Johnny becomes Spawn right before her eyes. Spawn looks at the cup. He places his hand above the table and visualises the cup in full detail. And then, a green flash of light illuminates their appartment. And an exact replica of the cup appears on the table. Spawn breathes out slowly as his Symbiote retreats back into his body.
Elisabeth : T-That's... I-I mean... Wow!!
Johnny : I know, right?
Elisabeth : *leans back on her chair and sighs* Wow... So... All those murders were...
Johnny : *looks away* Yeah...
Elisabeth : Your father's murderer...?
Johnny : I got him...
Elisabeth : I see... Heh...
Johnny : A-Are... Are you ok... With this?
Elisabeth : Well... I have to admit, I was scared at first. Frightened. But... We're both followers of Hell so for me to hear that you've been chosen by it to fight in this war... To hear that our beliefs were true. That... That is amazing. If they're allowing you to kill, then I guess it's alright.
Johnny : I don't really enjoy it though. Yes, the scumbags desserve it. But still... It feels... Weird...
Elisabeth : Do you regret it? You know... All this?
Johnny : Honestly? No. It did freak me out at first. Big time. But I've gotten used to it. It's pretty darn cool.
Elisabeth : No duh! You just instantly healed me from a fatal wound in like 2 seconds! That is really amazing!
Johnny : Took a lot out of me, though. I feel completely drained. Yet again I did use my powers a lot tonight. Teleported twice. Healed my own wounds. Carried a shit ton of guns.
Elisabeth : Carried a shit ton of what now?? Did you break in a military base?!
Johnny : N-No! No! My dad's murderer. He was a weapons dealer. Had some sweet pieces of hardware there. All of them were bought so nobody's gonna be looking for them. I don't trust the police so I couldn't let them have them. So instead I just found a nice little bunker in the alleys where I stored them. They're pretty impressive. And nice choices too! SIG550 Assault Riffle, Scar H, NCM, 50 cal Sniper Riffles...
Elisabeth : *sweatdrop* Err, Johnny?
Johnny : *stars in his eyes* L85, M-4 Carbine, the High Tech XM-8, Semi Automatics, Turrets!
Elisabeth : =.= *gently slaps him twice on the cheek*
Johnny : Ah! Sorry!
Y'know I'm a sucker for guns.
Elisabeth : You think? =w=
Johnny : Eheheh.. Eheh...
Elisabeth : *grabs him and pulls him in for a kiss*
Johnny : *kisses back*
Elisabeth : I'm proud of you. You're fighting for everyone out there. That's great.
Johnny : Really?
Elisabeth : *nods* Mm! Well atleast now I won't stay up all night worried about where you are. Just stay safe, alright?
Johnny : Right. But right now, the idea of sleeping this night off here with you sounds perfect. It's been a long night.
Elisabeth : Yeah. You're right about that.
The next morning at a high building full of antenas that look like crosses :
??? : *the same angel from 200 years ago disguised as a human**walking up to an office**opens the door* Gabrielle.
Gabriele : *elder woman with short blonde hair, wearing glasses and an office suit**looks up* Hello, Andreea.
Andreea : *walks up to her* Is it true? Has a new Hellspawn emerged?!
Gabrielle : Seems like it. Funny though. He's alive.
Andreea : What do you mean?
Gabrielle : He's a living person. Not an undead.
Andreea : Whatever. I want to hunt him down! I have to make up for failling to kill the Gunslinger!
Gabrielle : *rubbing between her eyes**sighs* Fine. I'll arrange for a hunting permit. He's a follower of the Devil. Feel free to end his life, painfully.
Andreea : Oh don't worry. *smirks* He will suffer before he dies.
That evening in the alleys :
All the homeless guy and Spawn : *gathered up around a fireplace, singing* FLINTSTONES!! MEET THE FLINTSTONES!! THEY'RE A MODERN STONE AGE FAMILY!!
Spawn : *his mask is peeled back from his mouth so he can drink* WILMAAAA!! *drinks up some wine*
Bootsy : Easy there, Johnny! *chuckles* Leave some for us!
Spawn : I feel amazing, guys! Telling Elisa about all this is the best thing that's ever happened to me!
Cog : Though you must realise that her knowing will put her in danger.
Spawn : True. IF my enemies will know that she knows. Since if you put it that way the simple fact that she knows me will put her in danger. And I'm not gonna be like all those Super Heroes from Comic Books and push her away for protection. That shit never works. She'd still be a target. So I'll just have to protect her at all times.
Cog : Hm *nods* I've forgotten how interesting you younger Spawns are. Always so determined. Full of potential.
Spawn : Heheh.
Andreea : *walks up to them in her human form* Excuse me!
Spawn : Huh? Who're you?
Andreea : My name is Andreea.
Spawn : Andreea. What're you doing here? We're kinda having a party here.
Andreea : I know. *smirks* That's how I got close!
Cog : !!! IT'S YOU!!
Spawn : Huh!?
Andreea : *a blinding flash of light strikes her and leaves her in her Angel form* The hunt is on, Hellspawn!
Homeless people : *all start running and taking cover*
Spawn : *stands up as the mask covers his mouth back* What the hell?!
Cog : A force of light. An Angel. Sent through time to slay Hellspawns! So I see Heaven gave you a chance to redeem yourself after you failed to kill Jeremy Winston!
Spawn : Jeremy Winston!?
Andreea : It's you, old man! After I slay this Hellspawn I will gut you aswell!
Cog : *narrows eyes* Be careful, Spawn! She's a lot stronger than she looks!
Spawn : Oh yeah? Well so are we!! *the upper waist chains lash out at her*
Andreea : *pushes them aside with her swords* Oh, the chains. Classic. *dashes at him*
Spawn : Tch! *the second pair from below lash out**manage to grab her ankles**pulls her down hard*
Andreea : AGH!! *hits the ground* You bastard!
Cog : *thinking : The first test begins. How will this Hellspawn fare...**gulps*
Spawn : Had enough, Bird-Wings?
Andreea : You punk! I'm going to keep your head as a trophy! *points one of her swords at him and fires a quick thunder blast*
Spawn : !! *evades but the blast still scratches his leg* AHH!! *hits the ground**thinking : Angels can kill Hellspawns. This would might take a while to heal! Ignore the pain! Keep fighting!**stands up**flames sorround his hands*
Andreea : Oh, you can still stand? You're a cute one! *holds her swords up**lashes out at him*
Spawn : Heh! Mabye! But you're about to become a Crispy Strip! *fires a flame blast at her*
Andreea : Woah!! *covers her face, blocking the blast**falls down**looks around* Where'd he go?! GRRR!!! *runs*
Cog : *watching from a safe spot**thinking : Every predator needs to fight on his terms and his grounds. If they are away from their key elements, they use distraction to retreat and lead their prey into their territory. Smart move, Johnny. But can you win this?*
Andreea : *arrives at an intersection of abandoned buildings* Such an open space... Did you bring me here on purpose, Hellspawn?!
Spawn : *behind her* But of course!
Andreea : ! Gotcha! *turns around but then takes a step back*
Spawn : *holding 2 large semi-automatic riffles in his hands**eyes glowing* Let's have some fun, baby! *starts shooting at her*
Andreea : !! *spreads her wings and begins to fly around doging the bullets*
Spawn : *spreading his arms trying to fire where she's going to be instead of where she already is*
Andreea : SHIT!! *makes a 180 turn but a few bullets manage to scratch her legs and stomach**falls down* Agh!! How?! How can these bullets hurt me?!
Spawn : I'm not an idiot, Andreea. I know mortal weapons cannot harm either one of us. So I'm powering up these weapons with my energy. Making the bullets into... Hmm.. Hell-Bullets?
Andreea : *stands up but her legs are shaking* You little twit! You won't get away with this, you hear me?!
Spawn : Same goes for you. You come invade my home, threaten to kill me and the old man. For that you shall pay dearly! *charges up his weapons and fires again*
Andreea : *slams her swords togheter and starts spinning them around at hih speed deflecting the bullets**some bullets manage to scratch her arms* AAAH!! *drops her swords and falls down*
Spawn : *stops firing**drops his weapons and walks towards her*
Andreea : P-Please... I can't.. W-What are you...?
Spawn : *his left arm morphs into a blade* ... I'm just a simple Hellspawn. *pulls his arm back, ready to thrust it through her chest*
Andreea : ! No! NOO!!! *a bolt of light strikes her and then she shoots up into the sky*
Spawn : What the f-...
Cog : *claps* Very impressive.
Spawn : *his left arm morphs back into a hand* Hm? *turns around*
Cog : It's been a while since I've seen an angel shoot out into Heaven like that. You've done well, son.
Spawn : *picks up his guns**leans the gun from his left hand on his shoulder* So that was an Angel, huh? A girl...
Cog : The males are much stronger. They are sent only in special cases. The males are "Archangels".
Spawn : *narrows eyes* Archangels... *hears heavy footsteps behind him* ? *turns around*
Clown : Hey there, little chicky! *grins* Did'ja miss yer ol' Uncle Violator?
Spawn : Clown. Long time no see.
Clown : Sorry. Had some stuff to take care of in Los Angeles. *looks at Cog* Hey, old man. Still breathin' I see.
Cog : Hello, Clown.
Spawn : I just kicked an angel's ass... Just sayin'..
Clown : Really now? Not bad for a rookie! Who was it?
Cog : Andreea.
Clown : Pfff- BWAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh this is rich!! You're the second Spawn she failed to kill!
Spawn : ! Second. *looks at Cog* Jeremy... Jeremy something?
Cog : *nods* Jeremy Winston. The Hellspawn of the Wild West. Or as some call him, "The Gunslinger Spawn". You could learn quite some things from him should you cross paths. One of my most remarkable students.
Spawn : I still don't understand, old man. Who are you? How do you know so much about everything?
Clown : Who, this guy? Why he's an old veteran of a Hellspawn himself!
Spawn : F-For real?!
Cog : *nods* I, too, was a Hellspawn. But as I got older over centuries, I was in no condition for battle anymore. So I dedicated the rest of my almost endless life to teach the new generations of Hellspawns. I've had promicing students. But I've failed one...
Spawn : Al Simmons...
Clown : Ya told him 'bout Simmons, old man?
Cog : *nods*
Spawn : You knew him, didn't you, Clown?
Clown : *sighs and walks a bit* He was my trainee and a good friend. Sure we were enemies at first. But in time we got to respect and trust eachother. But he fell down into madness. Lucifer only knows where his soul is now... *turns around* On your guard, Johnny-boy!
Spawn : Huh?
Cog : *walks back to a safe spot*
Clown : Now that I'm back and you got your revenge, time to begin your training. You got the uniform, the power, your vendetta's been solved, so let's get to it!
Spawn : Alright then. I assume that clown form of yours is a disguise. Show me what you really are.
Clown : Sure thing, little chicky! *clenches his fists* Nnnrgh! AAAGH!!
Spawn : *narrows eyes*
Clown : *begins transforming* OOOH YEAH!!! THAT'S HOW DADDY LIKES IT!!! *morphs into a large dark grey demon with big red bug-like eyes, a skinny body with large claws, and 2 spikes comming out of the sides of his head with a third one popping up from the back of his head, bent above his head over to above his face*
Spawn : Well... Wow...
Violator : *his voice is more demonic than before but a bit higher pitched* So begins, your training! *opens his clawns* Come on!
Spawn : ! *swings his arms foward and starts shooting*
Violator : *bullets hit him but them fall down and the wounds heal* You're so cute. You can't hurt me with these weapons.
Spawn : Alright then! *very small symbiote tendrils enter the weapons**starts firing green energy bullets*
Violator : !! *tries to block them with his hand but it gets torn appart from the bullets* YYYAWW!!! Ok, that's pretty impressive there!
Spawn : *dashes at him*
Violator : *hand regenerates**thrusts it at him very fast*
Spawn : *Violator's hand slams againts his torso, his claws sinking in his sides* AAAARGH!! *drops the weapons*
Violator : *slams him to the ground* Weapons. You adapt to this world's means of offense and deffense. Sure, it works for earthling threats. But againts residents of Heaven they won't save you all the time!
Spawn : Ngh! W-Worked pretty well againts Andreea. *spikes errupt from his torso stabbing Violator's hand*
Violator : GAAAH!! Seriously, that's the second time you fuck up my hand!! *pulls back**swings his hand around* Agh!
Spawn : *stands up**panting*
Cog : He's right, child. Use your costume. Remember. The two of you are one. She can do anything you can imagine. Just visualise your objective and focus!
Spawn : Right! *thrusts his fist at Violator and spikes shoot out of his arm*
Violator : *doges them**grabs the spikes and pulls Spawn in*
Spawn : No, no, no!!
Violator : *punches him hard**slams his hand againts him, throwing him in a wall*
Spawn : AGH!! *falls down**holds his head* Ungh... Alright then, time to get serious!
Violator : *dashes at him* NYYAAAGH!!
Spawn : *flames around his hands* Let's heat things up!! *fires a large blast of flames at Violator*
Violator : Oh sh- *gets hit by it and thrown back into a wall* Agh!
Spawn : *thinking : He's stunned! Now!!**the Symbiote forms a chain out from his shoulder that spins around his arm until it reaches his palm* Always wanted to say this! *steps hard and thrusts his hand at Violator* GET OVER HERE!! *chain shoots out from his hand and ties around the Violator's abdomen**pulls his hand back hard and the chain gets pulled back, pulling Violator along*
Violator : Woah, woah, woah, WOAH!!
Spawn : *has a fireball in his right hand**twitches his right hand pulling away the chain from around Violator's abdomen**swings his left arm and fires a concentrated fire blast*
Violator : YYYYYYEEEEAAAAAARGH!!! *falls down as the blast ends*
Spawn : !! Oh shit.... S-Sorry...
Cog : *widens eyes a little*
Violator : *stands up, shakingly**has a fairly big hole in his stomach* E-Eh?! *moves his hands around and his fingers go through the hole**anger marks* Y-You little twit!! Do you have any idea how long it takes for a wound like this to heal?! 3 minutes tops!!
Spawn : *holds his hands up infront of himself* S-Sorry, it was an accident! I didn't know how concentrated my blast was!
Cog : *clapping**walking towards them* Still, it was impressive. You really know how to handle your powers well.
Spawn : All I did was let my instincts take over. Hahah, I learned that one from Bleach!
Cog : That's good. To follow your instincts. But remember not to jump ahead without thinking.
Violator : *in a corner trying to heal himself**mumbling*
Cog : You have the power to do anything you want. But you must will it and focus on it if you want it to happen. Understand?
Spawn : Yeah. I understand.
Violator : YEEEAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!
Spawn and Cog : !?!?
Violator : *stands up straight and proud**his hole is healed* Yup! Good as new!
Spawn : *blink*... Ok, 1 : Why the hell did you scream like that? And 2 : I thought you said 3 minutes.
Violator : I did. But I can heal it instantly too. As for the scream, have you ever filled up a hole in your body in 1 second? It's not exactly a pleasant feeling...
Meanwhile on top of a rooftop :
Twitch : Sir... Are you doing this again?
Sam : Yep. This time it won't just be a flashlight on a building. We're talking big here. *presses a button on a spotlight**the spotlight shoots a light up in the sky**the light has a drawing on it of something with a cape spread across the light image* Heeheheheh! That'll draw him out for sure.
Twitch : Sir, I.. Oh well...
Sam : C'mon, Twitch, just trying to lighten up the mood here. *gets tapped on the head**turns around* CRIPES!!
Spawn : Good evening, gentlemen. I couldn't help but notice the ressemblence the light in the sky bares to me. I assume you wanted to talk to me?
Twitch : You're voice is different... Mr. Simmons, is that you?
Spawn : *narrows eyes* You worked with Mr. Simmons? You knew him? I'm sorry, but I'm not him... I'm... A new Spawn.
Sam and Twitch looked at eachother for a split second and then looked back at Spawn. They took a few seconds to admire his suit and noticed the differences between it and Al Simmons'. The suit had no red on it except for the cape. Al's suit had red armor on his forearms and underneath his knees, with spikes on them. This suit was much simpler. After a moment of dead silence, Twitch made the first step.
Twitch : Well then, I belive we have quite some things to talk about, don't we, Mr. Hellspawn?
Spawn : *nods*...
Chapter 3 - The End.
