Johnny gritted his teeth and clenched his fists. “You really are a monster. You have no hope of redemption.”
“And you have no hope of beating me,” Omega said with a grin.
“Enough talk!” Famine rushed with an attack, head on.
Omega leisurely turned his attention to his assailant. He dodged every swing, every kick. Famine grew frustrated and growled at this.
He laid a hand down on the ground. Vines, bones, rocks, dirt, and other greenery erupted underneath Omega’s feet.
Famine grinned as he stood proud, his prey in his clutches. “I’ve got you right where I want you, fiend.”
Omega made no effort to resist. “Right where you want me, eh? I guess you forgot about a little something…” The large makeshift hand crumbled away from him.
“what? What the Hell?!” Famine took a step back.
“let me demonstrate to you how it’s done…properly.”
Omega raised his right arm. The earth shook violently and erupted underneath Famine. He was engulfed by the very same method.
“Your power betrays you, peasant. It’s no longer yours to control,” said Omega as he tightened his grip on Famine.
“Brothers…help…me,” Famine struggled to say.
Death appeared behind Omega and manifested a brilliantly glowing scythe. It radiated with a holy aura. He brought it down and willed it through the hulking man.
However, it shattered as it struck Omega, leaving Death startled. He manifested an orb of purplish-black at their nemesis’ face.
“Perish…” he said with a low raspy voice.
Omega laughed and took a deep breath. He blew the ball of energy back at Death, knocking him down.
“I think it’s time for you all to know your real place,” Omega said. An invisible force hoisted Death into the air, “Say goodbye to your brothers, War.”
Johnny sent a swarm of nanomachines at Omega. He swung about wildly, swatting and batting at the incessant insects. No matter how many he destroyed, more were replicated.
“Your pathetic parlor tricks will get you nowhere, Omega shouted.
War reached to his feet and willed everything he had into his right fist. He waded through the shimmering cloud of machines and appeared before the brute. He swung with all his might he had left. It sent the monster that was Omega, hurling through the air. An icy blue shockwave radiated throughout Omega’s body; his grip on Death and Famine broke. The nanomachines followed and did their job of disassembling and dismembering.
“You think you’ve won? You’re pathetic! Just wait—” Omega’s voice was cut off as he dissipated into nothingness.
The four all sighed in relief.
