Mission 1Edit

"To make things interesting, Arcade has seeded his Murderworld with robotic clones of heroes and villains. Make sure it's a machine before you shoot."

Mission StartEdit

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Arcade has taken his Murderworld obsession to a new level. He's domed over areas of New York, cutting off all outside contact.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Information is scarce, but he's deployed some pioneering nanotechnology. Arcade is now a real combat danger.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We're reaching out to see who's been captured, but there's a lot we still don't know.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Murderworld has always been a way for Arcade to play games with other people's lives. Now he's at it again, but the stakes are even higher.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We've got to get our people out of there, but first we need to find a way in.


You want to see what I've done here, Fury? It's a masterpiece! I've even brought in one of your agents to take part in the proceedings. Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
You need another pawn to play with, Arcade?


Oh no, I have more pawns than I could ever play with. But I do want you to know what you're dealing with, Director.

This is a Murderworld like no other! With I myself playing a starring role... but of course some things never change. The lucky guests of Murderworld must kill or be killed!

Our first contestant is ready! Hulk, I welcome you to Murderworld! Your standard resistance method of tearing everything to pieces won't work here, I'm afraid.

The nano-enabled structure of this facility means it can repair and reconfigure itself faster than you can tear your way out.

Why have I invited you here? Fascinating question.

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Hulk:
Hulk Icon 1
I didn't ask.


But you were thinking it, weren't you? Of course you were. Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Hulk:
Hulk Icon 1
Was wondering what's the smallest pieces I could tear you into.


Agent, you'll be seeing Hulk later. First, you should see if you can't find your way to Daredevil and Hawkeye. They may know their way around a circus, but they have never been prepared for a game like this.

I've been doing a little experimenting with some new toys. You'll have many chances to admire my handiwork.

Are you ready? Splendid! Let us begin! The objective is to find your way out! Easy, right? Oh wait. Did I forget to mention the only way out is by killing each other? Otherwise it wouldn't be Murderworld, now, would it?

Since you crusader types are so fond of groups, there are two teams: heroes and villains! For added spice, I am spotlighting villains who recently chose the path of reformation. Betrayal! There's no better way to incite murder.

Screen TextEdit

Bishop has volunteered to do a little census work and population control on the bad guys in the area. Take him up on the offer while we're all still on the same side.

StartEdit

Bishop:
Bishop Icon 1
I'm going to take a look around and see if any of these Hammerheads and Madame Masques are the real thing.


CompleteEdit

Bishop:
Bishop Icon 1
All I'm finding is robots. Well, and a ton of street thugs who don't have any idea what they're doing down here either.


Deploy 2Edit

Screen TextEdit

If we're cut off from S.H.I.E.L.D. Command, we'll have to find the way out ourselves. Hawkeye can scout around and see if there are any holes in Arcade's barriers.

StartEdit

Hawkeye:
Hawkeye Icon 1
If there's a way out, I'll find it. Watch my six.


CompleteEdit

Hawkeye:
Hawkeye Icon 1
Nothing. This whole place is hermetic, near as I can tell.


Deploy 3Edit

Screen TextEdit

Send anyone you can spare to continue the search for a way out... and tell them to watch out for the robotic Madame Masques.

Deploy 4Edit

Screen TextEdit

Spider-Man thinks Nico Minoru is in here somewhere, and might be hurt. Send him to take a look.

StartEdit

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1
The old spidey-sense is telling me that Nico Minoru's in trouble. I saw her get tackled by a robo-Hammerhead, and after I arrived to break it up, she was gone.

I'm going to check out the area and make sure she's okay. No matter what Arcade wants, we need to stick together.



CompleteEdit

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1
I think she's been moved to another part of Murderworld. She's not around here, anyway. How big is this place?


Deploy 5Edit

Screen TextEdit

Keep looking for ways out. Even if we don't find them, we'll at least have a better idea of where the threats are...

MiniBoss - ElektraEdit

RevealEdit

I do love a street fight. Watching them, I mean. And this promises to be a good one. Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1
I'd know that heartbeat anywhere. Elektra.


Yes! Elektra! Do go forth and meet her, Daredevil! I'll be on the edge of my seat. Arcade:
Arcade Icon


StartEdit

Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1
You don't need Arcade. You were a killer before you got here. This must be your ideal environment.


Always rushing to that moral high ground, Matt. But in here, nobody gets to stand on principle. Elektra:
Elektra Icon


Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1
That's a nice excuse for something you weren't going to do anyway.


It's not an excuse. I'm just telling you that when you die being principled, you're still going to be dead. Elektra:
Elektra Icon


Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1
And yet if I survive, know that it was my principles that kept you alive after I've defeated you.


LoseEdit

You know I have no choice. But that's never stopped you from piling on the guilt. Elektra:
Elektra Icon


CompleteEdit

Wonderful show! Now, who else could possibly be watching...?

If watching isn't an unfortunate choice of words given the non-sightedness of one of our guests.

Oops. I did it again. Sorry, horn head.

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


MiniBoss - MoonstoneEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

It occurs to me there's a bit of a lovers' quarrel leitmotif here... ooh, there are no better games than those involving the heart!

I will continue the theme with the mighty assassin Clint Barton facing off against his one-time paramour, Moonstone!

Do your best, both of you! You have a lot to work out.

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


StartEdit

I just ran into a robot version of Luke Cage. How's Murderworld treating you? Moonstone:
Moonstone Icon


Hawkeye:
Hawkeye Icon 1
Arcade must be working out some kind of issues with an ex-girlfriend. He's got Daredevil and Elektra in another room around here somewhere.


Was that psychological insight from Clint Barton? The pressures of Murderworld do have a strange effect on people.

But this conversation is all avoidance. Time to get at the real issue.

Moonstone:
Moonstone Icon


LoseEdit

You're not even trying, Clint. I always knew you had a death wish. Moonstone:
Moonstone Icon


CompleteEdit

I like the intensity we're generating here. Let's keep it up! What wonders await...? Oh! We have yet to see where the Hulk has gotten to.

Please continue, Agent. I want you to have a full report for your S.H.I.E.L.D. superiors, so they know what I have in store for them.

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Agent. We are tracking your progress, but you must stay inside Murderworld long enough for us to learn a bit more about who Arcade's partners are.

Do not share this information. It is too difficult to determine when Arcade is not listening.



Boss - Red HulkEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Ooooh let's play with more feelings! Here we have the Great Green Avatar of Self-Loathing, facing off against his red counterpart!

Do they hate each other more or less than they hate themselves? Stay tuned...

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


StartEdit

I don't need Murderworld to want to see you in the ground, egghead. Red Hulk:
Red Hulk Icon


Hulk:
Hulk Icon 1
Took the words out of my mouth.


LoseEdit

Get up, Banner. I'm not done with you yet. Red Hulk:
Red Hulk Icon


CompleteEdit

Hulk:
Hulk Icon 1
Now I'm coming for you.


As much as it galls me when plans go awry, I applaud! This was a proof-of-concept, nothing more. If you think your fleeting victory will save your friends...

Excuse me. Do you have any friends?

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Hulk:
Hulk Icon 1
Don't need 'em.


Well, if you did, your fleeting victory would not save them! Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Hulk:
Hulk Icon 1
Good to know. Nothing's going to save you either.


Epic Boss - Taskmaster/ConstrictorEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Agent. I have noted the presence of Taskmaster and Constrictor within this portion of Murderworld.

Arcade does not appear to have included them in his larger plan, but they have crossed paths with another prisoner.

Captain Britain, it appears. Make contact with him, Agent. Quickly.



StartEdit

Looking for the way out, here... Constrictor:
Constrictor Icon


It's Murderworld, Frank. The only way out is to kill our way out. You have the stomach for it? Taskmaster:
Taskmaster Icon


Kill, kill, kill. Is that all you think about? Me, I just want a steak and a brew. Neither is here, therefore let's get out. Constrictor:
Constrictor Icon


Suit yourself. Either way we have to go through John Bull here. Taskmaster:
Taskmaster Icon


Captain Britain:
Captain Britain Icon 1
As you said, suit yourself.


LoseEdit

Seriously. I'm not supposed to be here. I don't belong here. Where's the exit? Constrictor:
Constrictor Icon


CompleteEdit

Out, you two mercenaries. Find your own way. Live or die, I don't care.

But Captain Britain... you fascinate me, with your whiff of the Otherworld. You I believe I will keep.

Mission CompleteEdit

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
The team has started to make progress breaking through Arcade's encryption. We cannot yet reach him directly to put an end to this madness while his nanotech screening remains intact...

Agent Coulson adds, and I quote, "But when he communicates outside its boundaries, we're starting to pick up some of those exchanges."

Those exchanges are providing insight as to the abominations awaiting you in the next area of Murderworld.

It appears Arcade has gathered his mutant captives all in one place. I will communicate with you telepathically as long as that is possible.



Group Boss - ArcadeEdit

Back to top ↑

StartEdit

I've decided to take a more active role in the Murder parts of Murderworld! For too long I've allowed others to have all the fun... Arcade:
Arcade Icon


CompleteEdit

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Murderworld is Arcade's territory. He rules unbridled.

I fear now that he has manipulated the underlying nanostructure to make himself more powerful. The old days when Arcade was just a sadistic voyeur... those days are over.

Be ever vigilant. You will see him again.



Mission 2Edit

"This section of Murderworld is devoted to mutants, with simmering rivalries brought to the boiling point. Is there any way out?"

Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Agent. Don't look around. God, has no one ever spoken to you telepathically before? This isn't amateur hour.

I've learned quite a bit more about Arcade's little playground. Here's the short version.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Emma...


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Yes, Charles. It is a bit embarrassing to be part of something as vulgar as Murderworld. But as you already seem to know, Arcade has tapped some new wellsprings of power.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
So we have observed. What else can you tell us from the inside?


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
He's trying to buy his way into the so-called elite of villains, and he thinks the best way to do that is to make his dog-and-pony show as good as it can be.

Why am I here? I'm so glad you thought to ask.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
It was I who asked, Agent.


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Come and find me. Arcade undoubtedly will ensure I'm able to show you more in person.


Deploy 1Edit

Screen TextEdit

We're seeing a ton of Blobs and Toads everywhere, in addition to more Test Subjects than you can shake a pipette at. Try to find out if the real Blob and/or Toad are here. We don't need any surprises.

StartEdit

Fantomex:
Fantomex Icon 1
If we do find Blob, it isn't as if we can ask him to leave. But I suppose it is good to know.


CompleteEdit

Fantomex:
Fantomex Icon 1
All the Blobs and Toads I saw were simulacra.


Deploy 2Edit

Screen TextEdit

It's possible that Kitty Pryde's phasing ability might get her through Arcade's barriers. Give it a try.

StartEdit

Kitty Pryde:
Kitty Pryde Icon 1
No physical force can get through these barriers, but maybe I can phase through them. I'll get to the closest part of the barrier and find out. Cover me.


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
Careful, Katya.


CompleteEdit

Kitty Pryde:
Kitty Pryde Icon 1
I can't. Nothing's going to get out that way.


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
The only way out is through. We must not lose ourselves trying to survive.


Deploy 3Edit

Screen TextEdit

Scout the perimeter. There must be a way into and out of this place. After all, Arcade is coming and going.

Deploy 4Edit

Screen TextEdit

Even though she's not a mutant, Nico Minoru might be here. Send Nightcrawler on a bamf-y tour of the area to see if he can find her.

StartEdit

Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
If Nico Minoru is here, I will find her. Poor fräulein.


CompleteEdit

Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
She was here. A number of people confirmed this... but then they tried to kill me so I did not stay to find out more.


Deploy 5Edit

Screen TextEdit

Maybe the trick to getting out is to go up instead of to the ground-level perimeter. Send Storm to see if there's an aerial escape route.

StartEdit

Storm:
Storm Icon 1
One of us who can fly should go up and see if we can get out that way.


Angel:
Angel Icon 1
I can do it.


Storm:
Storm Icon 1
No, I will. It might be dangerous and I'm not going to pass that danger off to someone else.


CompleteEdit

Storm:
Storm Icon 1
That was a fool's errand. Arcade has sealed this area so tightly that not even I could bring lightning in from the outside.


Angel:
Angel Icon 1
But didn't you...?


Storm:
Storm Icon 1
Yes. I can summon it from stored electricity inside here, but have no access to the stratosphere.


MiniBoss - Omega SentinelEdit

RevealEdit

Angel:
Angel Icon 1
Karima.


Yes, the Omega Sentinel! But is she here unwillingly, or has she joined forces with the nefarious, no-good enemies of all that's right and good?

Stay tuned! Find out! Only here on the Murderworld Channel!

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


StartEdit

I do not do this willingly... but... mutant, you... must... die! Omega Sentinel:
Omega Sentinel Icon


Angel:
Angel Icon 1
So much for that reprogramming job we did on you, huh? Or is this Arcade's little nanos clouding your judgment?

Either way, I hope you don't think I'm going to stand here and take it.



Your tactical choices are of no concern to me. Only the outcome matters. Omega Sentinel:
Omega Sentinel Icon


LoseEdit

I could kill you. But I will not... at least not yet. Remember that. Omega Sentinel:
Omega Sentinel Icon


CompleteEdit

Angel:
Angel Icon 1
Once a Sentinel, always a Sentinel.


Doesn't it just warm the cockles of your heart to see a man like Angel, battle-hardened and filled with rage?

I know I love it.

MiniBoss - SabretoothEdit

RevealEdit

Aaaaaaaaand: Sabretooth!!

Pitted most pitilessly against his blood brother and bitter enemy, Wolverine! Nature red in tooth and claw!

Can the healing factors keep up with the gushing wounds? Let's find out.

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


StartEdit

Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
This is the place for you, Creed. If I thought you had the brains, I'd suspect you of being in on it.


Just a gladiator. But hey, we've both been there. So let's put on a show. Sabretooth:

Who's the best there is now, Logan? Sabretooth:

What a spectacle! Good thing I have nanotech, or I'd have to hire a special cleaning crew. Arcade:

Nanotech isn't gonna save you when I track you down and gut ya, bub.


I don't think you're in any position to threaten me, Wolverine. But I do salute your moxie. Arcade:

Boss - MagnetoEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Magneto. Arcade has captured even him.


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Don't get fretful now, Charles. I will do what I must, as we mutants always do. So will Magneto.

Then we will find a way out of Murderworld and Arcade will answer particularly for his attempt to turn mutants against each other.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Optimism, from you? I concur with Moonstone's earlier thought. Murderworld has unusual effects on its subjects.


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
You need to be here to truly understand.


StartEdit

Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Turned over an old leaf, darling? I thought we mutants were all going to be friends.


The current circumstance would seem to dictate otherwise. I fear I am an unfortunate opponent for you, Emma. All that psychic power, and none of it can touch me. Magneto:
Magneto Icon


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Magnus, dear, you know taunts come back to haunt. Arcade has dealt the cards. Let's play the game.


LoseEdit

As I learned a long time ago, sometimes one must do unpleasant things to survive. Magneto:
Magneto Icon


CompleteEdit

Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
There's more going on here than an attempt to turn mutants against each other, Charles.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Isn't that enough? Awakening old rivalries would be quite a coup for our enemies.


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
I don't doubt it. I do doubt that's what's happening here... or if it is, it's a sideshow.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
And the main event is...?


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
As Arcade himself would say, stay tuned.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
He might be able to do it. The nanotech and Iso-8-derived innovations in this version of Murderworld are quite impressive.

Too impressive for him to have acted alone.



Mission CompleteEdit

Back to top ↑

Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Who's our mysterious compatriot, Charles? Stop being coy.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Nico Minoru. Arcade has opened a passage from this section of his Murderworld to the next... and Nico Minoru is there.

And she is wounded. I'm not sure how much of her magical power will be available to her.



Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
We can't afford to carry anyone, Charles.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
That is precisely how Arcade wishes us all to think. Do not give him the satisfaction.


I'm keeping this little "Sister" in our next little gallery! Will the esteemed guest Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. please follow the lighted signs? Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Yes, Agent. Arcade is counting on you to get the word out. You will be as safe as anyone can be in Murderworld.

See if you can locate Nico Minoru and discover who else Arcade has imprisoned...



Mission 3Edit

"Looks like Arcade's interests have taken a turn for the mystical in this section. If Nico Minoru's still inside Murderworld, she's here."
— Mission Preview

Mission StartEdit

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Nico Minoru is somewhere within this portion of Murderworld, Agent. We do not at this point know who else Arcade has trapped.

Whatever gauntlet she is to run, you will run it with her... and that is where Director Fury's plan takes over.



Agent. Why don't you rendezvous with our goth-y guest and we will undertake the third act of the program. She is to play a starring role!

The first two have gone very well, but all rests on the big finale, no?

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Agent, is he leading you to--


Aaaaaand that's enough telepathic communication with your dear friend Dr. Xavier. Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent? How'd you make it this long without getting chowdered?

Also, you got anything to drink? Lemonade maybe?



Deploy 1Edit

Screen TextEdit

Maybe Dr. Strange can get a message to Wong by way of the astral plane. If that works, we might all be able to get out that way.

StartEdit

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
If I can project myself astrally into the Sanctum Sanctorum, Wong will surely be able to discern the nature of this barrier.

Give me a moment.



CompleteEdit

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
By the Vishanti, this barrier is impermeable even to me!


Deploy 2Edit

Screen TextEdit

There are robotic versions of Wrecker and the Executioner all over. Where's the Enchantress? Hiding out somewhere, or did Arcade forget her invitation? Find out.

StartEdit

Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
We've seen Wreckers and Executioners... but where is Amora? We cannot walk into one of her traps.

Sif, take a look around. You'll be able to find her, just by sheer force of hate.



Sif:
Sif Icon 1
That is my tracking device when it comes to her, yes.


CompleteEdit

Sif:
Sif Icon 1
If she was here, I would have found her. Instead all I found was a parade of demons.


Deploy 3Edit

Screen TextEdit

Valkyrie might be able to open a portal to Asgard. That would get us out, if it works.

StartEdit

Valkyrie:
Valkyrie Icon 1
Even Arcade cannot contain the powers of Asgard, surely?


Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
I don't know. He trapped Thor here, did he not?


Valkyrie:
Valkyrie Icon 1
Let us find out.


Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
It will not work.


CompleteEdit

Valkyrie:
Valkyrie Icon 1
You were correct. It did not work. Arcade is working with very powerful forces here. One wonders if he knows how powerful...


Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
And how long he can control them.


Deploy 4Edit

Screen TextEdit

We've tried everything else. Maybe we can clear a path out and down through the subway system.

StartEdit

Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1
We've gone up... no. To the side... no. Maybe we should try down?


Ghost Rider:
Ghost Rider Icon 1
Even if we have to get out by way of Subterranea, it'll be worth it. Mole Man has many sins to pay for.


CompleteEdit

Ghost Rider:
Ghost Rider Icon 1
Should have known that wouldn't work.

We're just going to have to fight our way out. But would we want it any other way?



Deploy 5Edit

Screen TextEdit

This must be almost the end of this part of Murderworld. Who's got the courage to head back through and make sure no one's been left behind?

StartEdit

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
We cannot leave anyone behind here. We must sweep all the areas in which we have previously fought.


CompleteEdit

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
And now, perhaps, this dire odyssey will near its conclusion.


MiniBoss - Scarlet WitchEdit

RevealEdit

A clash of mystical might! The avatar of chaos magic faces off with the Gothy upstart! Ohh, the anticipation is killing me!

Scarlet Witch, take a bow! Meet your opponent, young Nico Minoru!

More special guest stars to be announced soon!

Arcade:

Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
I don't think I'm ready for this.


How could you be? Scarlet Witch:

I don't mean fighting you. I'll fight you. But I'm not ready to die.


Neither am I. Scarlet Witch:

Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
Well, one of us has to.


Both of us must, eventually. Whether or not it happens today... who knows? Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon


Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
Jeez, and I thought I was goth.


LoseEdit

Arcade, even you do not control the powers of chaos. Nico lives, and I will not kill her. Do it yourself. Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon

Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
What's next? Do I get to go after Arcade? Hey, Arcade!


I am summoned! What's your question, young lady? Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
When do we fight? I mean, you didn't get all of these new powers just so you could watch everyone else have all the fun...


I have all the fun I can stand, believe you me, Grimm girl. Arcade:

MiniBoss - SatanaEdit

RevealEdit

Is my brother here? I can smell him. Satana:
Satana Icon


Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
Who cares? You might want family melodrama, but I think Arcade will probably incinerate us or something if we don't fight.


Teenagers. Always in such a rush. Satana:
Satana Icon


Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
Don't sweat it, Nico. I got this one.


Well, what do you know about that? A surprise guest: the Son of Satan himself, Daimon Hellstrom!

Well, technically the Son of Marduk Kurios, but that doesn't roll off the tongue quite the same way. To the sibling squabble!

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


StartEdit

Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
So here we are. Just like old times. All that's missing is dear old dad conniving to set us against each other.


And here I thought you'd just attack me pitilessly, with all the demonic rage your dual nature creates. Satana:
Satana Icon


Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
You're talking about yourself, right? Even if you win, you lose. And anyway, against me you're not going to win.


I see what you did there. Loosen me up, insult me, console me all at once. Smooth, Daimon... if I was eight years old. Satana:
Satana Icon


Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
So smooth you can't stop it, even if you do see it coming.


LoseEdit

Maybe now you'll drop the douchebag big-brother act. Satana:
Satana Icon


CompleteEdit

Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
All right, Arcade. Who's this show for?


For me, of course! You should know that your second time through. Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
Don't give me that crap. Who's it for? If I'm going to die anyway, you might as well tell me.


I'll let you in on a little secret. Watching someone die is infinitely more fun if you know they are dying without learning that which they most want to know.

In other words: My lips are sealed, and soon so will your coffin be.

Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Daimon Hellstrom:
Daimon Hellstrom Icon 1
Cute. But I've walked through Hell. Little pocket godlings with nanotech powers don't scare me.


Boss - LokiEdit

RevealEdit

Change of plans, campers! We've had a full program already, but we're also adding a very special guest:

The Trickster of Asgard, most conniving and jealous half-brother of the Odinson: Loki!

And continuing our family theme, we've brought in the Thunder God himself... believe you me, the sparks are going to fly!

Arcade:

One could almost wish one had thought of Murderworld oneself. Loki:

Thor:

Do you want to know what I wish, brother?


Oh, do tell. Loki:

Thor:

I wish you possessed as much courage as guile, and as much principle as ambition.


Let us see whether we are better served, here and now, by your chosen qualities or by mine! Loki:

Surely the son of the All-Father is not defeated by his disfavored adopted brother? What will One-Eye think? Loki:

Well, I think this has been a tremendous learning experience for everyone. Congratulations to the survivors! I'll be back soon with an even better Murderworld! Arcade:

Thor Icon 1
The coward is glib in defeat. Let us pursue him and end this.


Professor X:

Not now, Thor. Now we must concentrate on getting everyone out, and making sure that none of Arcade's robot simulacra escape.

Your exit from Murderworld should be dead ahead. Keep going until you see daylight.



Tony Stark:

And Quinjets.


Nico Minoru:

Ah, the old nanotech-made-me-do-it defense. I've heard that one before.


Beast:

She's not kidding. We ran all kinds of scans on her, Creed, even Magneto. All of them lousy with Arcade's little bugs.


Tony Stark:

Yeah, well, this is precedent. Next time I freak out and try to kill a bunch of my friends, I'm going to blame evil nanotech. Or the Phoenix Force. You've been warned.

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Arcade has taken his Murderworld obsession to a new level. He's domed over areas of New York, cutting off all outside contact.


Maria Hill:

Information is scarce, but he's deployed some pioneering nanotechnology. Arcade is now a real combat danger.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We're reaching out to see who's been captured, but there's a lot we still don't know.


Maria Hill:

Murderworld has always been a way for Arcade to play games with other people's lives. Now he's at it again, but the stakes are even higher.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We've got to get our people out of there, but first we need to find a way in.


You want to see what I've done here, Fury? It's a masterpiece! I've even brought in one of your agents to take part in the proceedings. Arcade:
Arcade Icon


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
You need another pawn to play with, Arcade?


Oh no, I have more pawns than I could ever play with. But I do want you to know what you're dealing with, Director.

This is a Murderworld like no other! With I myself playing a starring role... but of course some things never change. The lucky guests of Murderworld must kill or be killed!

And speaking of our guests... Welcome, my current and former villainous colleagues and rivals! This... is... Murderworld!

Wherein those of you who have reformed will un-reform if you wish to survive, because you know the only way to get out of Murderworld is to kill your way out!

I know how hard it must be for you to function without S.H.I.E.L.D. dictating your every move, so I have included an Agent to hold your leashes. Try not to kill your custodian Agent until the end!

First, O intrepid S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, I would like you to observe these lovers' quarrels.

If Murderworld can contain the scorn and fury of jilted romance, it can contain anything. Am I right? I'm right.

Enjoy the first act of this play. See if you can't find Elektra inside. Tell her I sent you.

Emma Frost can probably tap Arcade's thoughts and find out where the control center for this part of Murderworld is.

Emma Frost:

I have been able to communicate with Xavier a time or two since we all got trapped in this absurdity. If there are psychic loopholes, maybe Arcade's defenses there aren't as strong.

I'll bet I can get a sense of what Arcade is thinking without him ever knowing...

Emma Frost:

Shocking. There's just a ghost of a presence. He's barely there, and I can't even sense him well enough to get any kind of a reading.

Thor-B 1 Icon


Loki:
Loki Icon 1
Let's not take the time to list them, brother. It will distract both of us from the task at hand.

But I must ask: have you seen the mechanical versions of your lady Sif? Quite lifelike. I could almost fall in love.



If you are taunting me, brother, you'll have to do better. Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


Loki:
Loki Icon 1
Arcade was right. Criticism is easy. You know what's beautiful? Elegies. Like the one I will give at your funeral.


LoseEdit

Even in Murderworld, your trickery cannot match courage and strength of arm, brother. Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon

Your Murderworld begins to crumble, Arcade. Has the plotter been outplotted?


Jibe all you wish, Laufeyson. The entertainment I have gotten from this marvelous game immunizes me against your goading.

There will be another Murderworld. Each serves a purpose, and in the future perhaps I will take a more active role.

My sincere thanks to you and all the other participants, living and not. Return to the outside, and tell everyone what you saw here.

I can use the publicity.

Oh, even though you're free to go, I make no warrant that the other inmates will let you pass without incident.

Now if you'll excuse me, pressing matters require my attention.

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Agent. The block has been lifted. Is Nico--


Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1
I'm here, Professor Xavier. We're just about to leave.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Agent, we've got regular comm again. Arcade's on to the next thing. He never can focus on a particular Murderworld for too long.

Piping your location to a recovery team. You and the rest of Arcade's inmates are headed to the Helicarrier for a rigorous debrief.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
I think some of the... ahem... recently reformed members of our team have some fences to mend.


Omega Sentinel:
Omega Sentinel Icon 1
I am only now purging the nanos from my system using my own nanoheal arrays. Arcade targeted us and affected our behavior using his new technology.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Ah, the old nanotech-made-me-do-it defense. I've heard that one before.


Beast:
Beast Icon 1
She's not kidding. We ran all kinds of scans on her, Creed, even Magneto. All of them lousy with Arcade's little bugs.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Yeah, well, this is precedent. Next time I freak out and try to kill a bunch of my friends, I'm going to blame evil nanotech. Or the Phoenix Force. You've been warned.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Everyone's back on the same side now? Hank, you're sure none of Arcade's nanos are still operational?


Beast:
Beast Icon 1
I'm going to triple-check everyone.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Quadruple.


Beast:
Beast Icon 1
Like I said, I'm going to quadruple-check everyone.
