This is exactly what they all said would happen, Invinci-Boy thought as he sailed across the cavernous, octagonal room. His back collided with a window-sized monitor and his tailbone landed hard on the control panel perpendicular to it amidst a shower of sparks. Burning wire smell filled his nostrils. His head throbbed to the rhythm of the blinking amber warning lights. Blood clotted in his dirty-blond hair and streamed into his blue eyes. Before he made it to his feet, the dark-haired man he struggled against coiled him in the smoky tendrils--the physical manifestation of his power and pinned his arms to his sides. The insubstantial, charcoal wisps with dragon heads wound around his legs and lifted him into the air. Invinci-Boy writhed, his shiny yellow boots dangling two feet above the floor.
"Don't try to do this by yourself," his colleague The Lumberjack had said over his communicator a few hours before. A call had come in to headquarters that a new nuclear power facility had been breached by an intruder. The plant, hidden on the northernmost tip of Hokkaido, Japan, had been designed to run strictly through the use of sophisticated robots and computers. No human staff needed risk their safety. Scientists bragged that the self-contained industrial unit couldn't be penetrated by any of the various terrorist groups plaguing the world. In five years, they said, similar plants would provide perfectly safe, pollution-free energy to the human race.
Obviously, they'd been wrong. Invinci-Boy, just finishing a mission in North Korea, offered to make the hour-long flight to Japan's chilly north coast and capture the trespasser. If extremists gained control of the plant, the situation could easily spiral into a catastrophe: a Three Mile Island or worse.
"What are you trying to prove?" Ms. Amazing had scolded. The miniscule image of her on his wrist crossed its arms. Though they'd spoken only that morning, the conversation with his teammates felt distant to Invinci-Boy now, as if it had happened years, not hours, in the past.
"Wait for your father," Lumberjack urged. "It'll end in disaster if you go alone. Look what happened last time you risked an operation solo--"
He'd torn off his wrist communicator and flung it into the North Sea. He'd never hear the end of it when, and if, he made it out of here. If his adversary had his way, though, Invinci-Boy might not have to worry about the taunts and I-told-you-so's of his peers. The slender, black-clad man made a fist, tightening Invinci-Boy's magical bonds, crushing his ribs and restricting his breathing. He sauntered across the polished concrete floor toward the young hero, grinning. A chin-length lock of hair obscured his right eye. The rest of his black tresses stood out behind his head in short spikes. Invinci-Boy flexed his thighs and calves until he thought the muscles would tear. The sky-blue spandex he wore stretched and ripped. He felt the mystical fetters weaken and dissolve, freeing his legs. The other man, his attention on Invinci-Boy's face, didn't notice. As soon as the criminal came near enough, Invinci-Boy kicked him in the diaphragm with all his strength. The svelte line of his body doubled over as it flew backward ten feet. He crashed into another large screen, cracking it, before crumpling on the floor. Struggling to breathe, the man pushed himself up on his hands and knees.
Before his rival could stand, Invinci-Boy drove his heel into the other man's ribs. A shower of bloody froth shot from the man's lips, and he collapsed on his side and drew his knees to his chest. Invinci-Boy wiped his own bleeding face with the back of his hand. When the man rolled and tried to push himself up on his elbows, the young hero kicked him back down.
