==[ Simulator - Sub-Basement - Avengers Mansion ]==

At first full glance, this room is completely dull in sight, but extremely large in size giving plenty of room for flight or ground movement. There is no furniture, or anything for that matter. Only metal walls, floor, and ceiling. are scene with the occasion break in the walls and a high glass booth sitting up in the highest corner. Of course when the rooms is in use, the setting change to to holographic imagery to any scene or battle that an be thought up. As well as robots trained to attack in certain patterns and with certain weaponry depending on the difficulty set and whoever they are supposed to portray.

The large glass booth is in fact the control room for this simulation area. Here someone has audio and visual contact on whoever is participating below. In the control room, one can tape a simulation as well as change the actual setting itself to either a pre-set one or something off the top of their head. Here the difficulty, as well as holographic images can be changed with ease thanks to the controls.

==========================================================================

To begin with, a standard simulation. Five Combat-Bots. Low threat but programmed with a complete Avengers membership database so they can work up proper strategies to counter and challenge members of the team. The five robots are spread through the simulation room, ready to attack.

Standing at the entrance of the room, Sandman pshaws, "Five bots. . .this should be easy, Jules! In fact, I'll be all gentlemen like and let you take out the first one." He does a faux grandiose gesture of bowing to let her take the first shot of this exercise.

It's been awhile since Arachne has done any training, so when the opprotunity presents itself she quickly takes it. Glancing around at the room she frowns slightly /log

It's been awhile since Arachne has done any training, so when the opprotunity presents itself she quickly takes it. Glancing around at the room she frowns slightly "I know. You'd think they would want to challenge us." she gives a thumbs up in affirmative to his ladies first assertion. Dashing forward, she heads straight for one of the walls, using it to spring board herself upward and at the nearest Combot-Bot, coming at it from above in an attempt to drive fists through its robot head.


The robot stumbles as Arachne's fists drive down through the robot. It is crushed but still operating.

As his teammate promptly attacks first, Sandman is quick to follow up. He expands his body wide and attempts to create two large sand fists to smash down on two of the bots.


As Sandman comes down, the two robots prove they are nimble and leap backwards. His giant, rock-hard fists slam into the floor but not into robots.


Taking the brunt of the blast, Sandman's body explodes out causing him to disassemble momentarily. A loud disembodied scream is heard and as he starts to reassemble into a humanoid form. "That hurt. . .alot." He stammers out.

As the robots retaliate the attack from the two heros, Arachne pushes herself from the cleaved robot, she hits the ground moving and doesn't stop, going from floor, to ceiling to wall in a feat of acrobatics that all of the spider set are known for.

As the attack stops Arachne lands behind the robot that is nearly destroyed and plans on finishing the job and perhaps taking another out at the same time. Grabbing the thing she lifts it over her head, "Keeping it together, Bill?" she asks before hurling it at one of the other robots.


The robot goes flying across the room, smashing into another combat bot. It breaks in two before it hits the ground. The robot that got slammed? Heavily damaged.

"Trying to, Jules. . . .Trying to. . ." As he continues to assemble his body, a half grin forms on a half face, "Cover your eyes. . ." Sandman warns as his body turns to a miniature sandstorm to aimed towards the three left open from Arachne's attack.


It seems the Sandman's moves are well programmed into the database. The robots zoom through the room, keeping out of reach of his whirling sandstorm of death! They then turn, launching blast attacks against both Bill and Julia.


Another tumbling run over the variety of surfaces both vertical and horizontal isn't enough for Arachne to escape the second barrage of laser blasts1 She winces as blasts hit, leaving smoking marks on her costume and she will certainly be feeling those for a couple of days.

Perched on the ceiling, an arm extends, wrist flicking and fingers splaying. A spray of Psiwebs erupt from the floor underneath one of the undamaged robots to ensnare it.

Once again taking the brunt of the blast, Sandman takes longer to recuperate and reform, "What the hell? Steve must have programmed these robots to be jerks on purpose!" That is all said with twinges of pain at each syllable.

Julia's web catches onto the robot as it attempts to free itself, but finds itself unable too. Sandman, now having reformed, "Good idea!" The two remaining robots buzz at him. Instead of attacking them, he simply extends his arms and when they charge him, he creates sand tentacles, ensnaring. "Hey, Jules. . .how about I hold em, while you smash them?"

"If he did reprogram them it was not to be vindictive." Arachne responds as she moves across the ceiling. "Right, grab and smash coming right up." she leaps forward into a flip, crossing the distance between her and the grabbed robots in one great bound. She once more does a dive through, fists leading so she can smash through the closest one.


The first one is smashed and Sandman uses its destroyed from and smashes the one caught on the psi-web. Leaving only one more robot remaining that is trapped in Sandman's sand snare.

Leaping away from the damaged robot that Sandman hurls, to the onlt robot left standing, Arachne flips and twists so that she lands on the 'arm' that Sandman has wrapped around the robot. Hands snapping out she will slam the flats of her palms against the sides of its head, twisting and pulling, making an attempt to wrench its head off.

After a few tugs, the head pops off as sparks fly out from the robot. With that done, Sandman tosses its carcass aside. "Good job. We work well together."

Arachne does the same with the head, tosses it over her shoulder non-chalantly "Especially when I seem to do most of the working." its a good natured response, not meant to be offensive, more the joking banter of team mates "I think we could have handled at least five or ten more." she looks around and the damage caused by thier handiwork.

"Yeah. . ." So now that the two are alone, Sandman peers about over his shoulder, "So who knows you are on the Thunderbolts? I mean other than Walker?" He quirks his eyebrow as he asks.

Considering the question gives Arachne a moment to give her own wary look around ,"No one that I am aware of. Or at least none of the Avengers have leapt up and accused me of being in the group." her eyes narrow and the corners of her mouth turn down in a frown "Is there something I should be worried about?

Sandman says, "Nah. I haven't mentioned it myself. I figure the group is legit or legit as can be with Walker running it since Ares left. But still with Spiral, Firebrand, and Elektra in it. . . best to just be careful. . . I am with them anyway." Sandman offers his advice."


Arachne nods "Elektra and Spiral I have no problem with, Firebrand is another matter." especially since it was her that lead to his last term in prison "I don't think this is the best place to discuss this. Someplace with less video cameras and microphones would be better." with that she heads to the exit, kicking a piece of robot out of her path as she goes.
