On the ground, Brains covered his head and rolled on his side, knowing already that he couldn't escape its path.
Seduction stood there in the doorway, staring at his flock, as behind him the shadow barely kept pace with Jackhammer charging through the entrance, eyes flaring with fury, mouth wide with the sound that erupted from the deepest depths of his soul. Seduction had no time to react as Jackhammer rammed full pelt into his back, sending the villain flying forward, spinning out of control as he tripped over Brains and sailed across the room.
He was there before Crunch could rise, lifting him again and tossing the behemoth back across the room. Jackhammer lifted Seduction to his feet and landed a jaw-breaking fist. Seduction bounced off the wall and hit the ground dazed. For a brief second he lost consciousness, and a round of gasps erupted around the room.
Seduction saw his approach and struggled to rise, blood pouring from his mouth. His lower jaw hung open even as he reasserted his control on the Superhero League. Jolt grabbed Hawk's leg while Simmi scuttled to release Bounce from his prison in a last ditch hope to even the battle. He had to trust Bounce was on their side.
Quake dropped on Crunch and held him down with a constant barrage of bad vibrations that splintered the floor beneath the muscleman.
O'Shay sat on the motionless body looking down at what he'd done and the room slowly fell into silence again. One by one the lost members of the Superhero League shook off Seduction's mind control and stepped back from their battle that had just re-erupted. The Brotherhood hesitated, confused but wary as The League clustered in the centre of the room, arms outstretched in a motion of retreat to show they no longer meant any harm.
Despite all of his own strength and skills; despite his fury; despite all his deepest desires, Jackhammer had still be bound by his oath to never kill if it could be avoided. O'Shay had no such mantra.
He had become the unlikely hero of the hour.
