Airmax vs. Mikal (a DDO fanfic)

INSIDE - Remote location - Cave

Airmax walks through the cave with an LED on his chest. He walks for another kilometer before reaching a rusty iron door.

INSIDE - Hideout

(Airmax)

"It's been a while, hasn't it?"

Airmax sits on a table in the cave hideout. A shadow brews tea into two cups.

(Shadow)

"Yes, it has. About ten years to be exact."

(Airmax)

"It wasn't my doing. You're very hard to find."

(Shadow)

"That's a load of horsecrap, Max."

The shadow comes out of the dark and into the light. ROYLATHAM carries a wooden tray with two cups and sets one down for Airmax.

(Airmax)

"Well. You're hard for others to find."

Roylatham sits down.

(Roylatham)

"What troubles you old friend?"

Beat.

(Airmax)

"... A lot."

He pulls out an old 90s Risk boardgame.

(Airmax)

"Want to play?"

Roylatham smiles.

(Roylatham)

"With pleasure."

OUTSIDE in Indonesia - Deserted street

Gunshots rattle throughout the entire base. Both sides shoot at each other through concrete rubble and shelter. Fires build up in trash cans and trash sites.

The gunning ceases.

(Mikal)

"Alright, we're done here."

Mikal jumps over the barricade. An army of Indonesian military forces follow.

A lone insurgent man has his hands on his head. Around him are dead insurgents, wearing supervillain costumes.

(Mikal)

"You gonna kill yourself or should I do it?"

The man weeps.

A soldier appears beside him and ties his hands with strong carbon ropes.

Imabench appears beside Mikal.

(Imabench)

"That"s forty eight this time."

(Mikal)

"This isn't right. Airmax shouldn't just be able kill whoever he wants."

(Imabench)

"Not to defend that sucker, but he only kills villains."

(Mikal)

"..."

A soldier walks up to Mikal.

(Pvt. Suparman)

"Thank you for all you services. We can take it from here."

Mikal turns to Imabench.

(Mikal)

"What did he say?"

(Imabench)

"He told us he likes us but wants us to get lost"

(Mikal)

"Ah."

The soldier walks away towards the prisoner, where several soldiers are beating him senseless.

Mikal stares at the scene for a while, and then turns away.

(Mikal)

"Airmax told me his predictions of the future."

Imabench groans.

(Imabench)

"Not another one of his, 'we all die someday' prophecies is it?"

(Mikal)

"No. But I think it'll come true."

(Imabench)

"Wait... What? Hey, where you going?"

(Mikal)

"I'm going back to base."

(Imabench)

"What about the weapons?"

Imabench gestures towards a small box with two hundred bullet grenades in them.

Beat.

(Mikal)

"Take em' with us."

OUTSIDE in 'North' Japan - Prison camp - Shooting alley

Airmax walks straight along the line of villain prisoners. They consist of terrorists, corporate owners, sex traffickers, corrupted politicians, leaders of underworld criminal gangs.

Airmax stops, he turns to the Japanese soldiers facing opposite. They have their rifles ready by their sides.

He sighs, remembering his conversation with Roy.

EARLIER - Cave hideout

(Roylatham)

"Why don't you just kill him?"

(Airmax)

"I'm not a senseless killer."

(Roylatham)

"Didn't you say you killed Zaradi?"

(Airmax)

"He was dangerous."

(Roylatham)

"So is Mikal."

(Airmax)

"He hasn't done anything wrong. Yet. He's also my closest friend."

(Roylatham)

"What about Zaradi?"

(Airmax)

"He was my friend too. And not a day goes by where I don't think of him."

(Roylatham)

"You're in a deep dunghole now Max and I don't know if you can climb out. Not only do you have this to deal with, but you've got America wanting your a** in jail."

(Airmax)

"I need help. What do I do?"

(Roylatham)

"You tell me Max. You're the smart one."

(Airmax)

"Says the guy who won last round."

Roylatham places flags on Airmax's countries.

(Roylatham)

"You're going easy on me."

(Airmax)

"You're right."

Airmax rolls the dice and then swipes away three quarters of Roylatham's army, winning the game.

(Roylatham)

"So you've finally become Hegemon eh? How is that going?"

(Airmax)

"Hard. I'm forced to trial every single villain on Earth except America. So in the end, I decide to just-"

(Roylatham)

"Kill them all?"

(Airmax)

"Yes. Does it make me a bad person? Am I the evil one here?"

(Roylatham)

"I don't know Max. No one has as much power as you do. But my dad once told me that with great power, comes great-"

(Airmax)

"Responsibility?"

(Roylatham)

"Corruption."

(Airmax)

"Am I a corrupt person, Roy?"

(Roylatham)

"A man who doubts himself, is a man on the right path Max. I'm not much of a wise sage but I can tell you that much. Confidence defeats us. It's humility that pulls us back up."

Roy stands up and shakes Airmax's hand.

(Roylatham)

"Thanks for visiting Max, but I'm old and retired. I can tell you want me to come back to the force but it ain't gonna happen. Not today."

Airmax looks around at the cave walls where Japanese shurikens and swords are hung up.

(Airmax)

"If you say so, Roy. Thank you for the talk. If things go to hell, I want to let you know that you are the greatest man I have ever had the honour to meet."

(Roylatham)

"Yeah... One day, we might get to meet Envisage again amiright'? And we'll all have a couple of beer or two like we used to back in the day."

(Airmax)

"I hope so. We all die someday."

OUTSIDE - Prison camp

-- If I ever visit heaven, will I see you there Zaradi? --

Airmax turns to the criminals in line.

(Airmax)

"You all had your chances and you used them up. You could have been good citizens who did not hurt people. But you made that choice. And now, I have to make mine."

Airmax nods towards the soldiers.

(Airmax)

"Open fire."

The soldiers pull their triggers. One of the criminal's shouts gets cut off. The bullets bounce off and one flies toward Airmax but stops in midair.

The soldiers stop and all the criminals lie dead. The wall is covered with holes.

-- No, we won't meet after all Zaradi. Not in hell. --

INSIDE the Red Station - Underground basement

Mikal and Imabench stand atop a railing overlooking a mass crowd of superheroes.

(Mikal)

"Is that everyone?"

(Imabench)

"Everyone who hates Airmax or doubts him yeah. So what's the plan here?"

(Mikal)

"Ima, what do you think of Airmax?"

(Imabench)

"A dick to people and a pain in the a**. But he's also -"

(Mikal)

"Exactly. What right does he have terrorizing the world with his regime? Why should he be the one to tell us what's right and wrong? There's no democracy and there's no freedom."

(Imabench)

"I don't know Mikal. He wouldn't hurt us would he?"

Mikal clasps Ima's shoulders, the metal digging in.

(Mikal)

"You saw what he did to Zaradi. That could happen to you, to me, to anyone else."

(Imabench)

"I... I know."

"I want you to help me. Airmax needs to be stopped."

Imabench nods.

(Mikal)

"Good. Then let's begin."
