Summary: While Vision tries to rescue Ned and Betty from the Ferris Wheel, MJ finds herself unexpectedly aiding an injured Scarlet Witch.
“Oh no!” Beck seemed immediately distraught by the ‘accident’, but Vision could see right through him now. The only thing keeping Vision from blasting Beck into oblivion was the fact that the man was currently shielding Peter from the Elemental’s wrath. Vision continued to fire blasts at the beast, keeping his distance as he had promised, but becoming frustrated when he didn’t seem to be doing any damage.
As Peter and Beck began hurling pieces of non-metal debris at the elemental, Vision turned his attention to Wanda’s task before her unfortunate not-an-accident: Rescuing the two teenagers trapped on the ferris wheel.
He was comforted by the fact that Beck clearly had no idea what he was dealing with. It would take more than a little blow like that to get rid of Wanda Maximoff.
“Have we got any word from Maximoff?” Fury yelled, as the car continued barrelling along the streets of Prague.
“Nothing yet, Sir” Hill replied.
Harley, huddled in the back seat, felt sick. Wanda had been so good to him, kind and patient and tolerant of a stupid teenager’s crush. Now she was hurt, maybe worse, and he couldn’t help thinking he should have done more.
Meanwhile, having been hiding in a side-street a relatively safe distance from the worst of the battle, Michelle Jones, aka MJ, had crept out to retrieve a strange piece of debris, and had just tucked it into her bag when the unconscious Scarlet Witch landed beside her with a thud. MJ yelped in surprise, relaxing only the tiniest bit when she saw what had happened.
“Crap..” MJ knelt beside the downed Avenger, finding her bleeding from a small gash on the head, unconscious, but breathing. “Uh, Miss Witch? Are you alright?” Of course she wasn’t, because she was still unconscious. Looking around and finding absolutely no-one else available to help, MJ groaned, seizing Wanda under the arms and dragging her back to the safety of the side-street. “Please wake up.. I’m really not equipped to deal with this..”
For now at least, Spider-Man and 'Mysterio’ appeared to have the Elemental under some sort of control, so Vision circled the Ferris Wheel in search of the quickest, safest way to get the teens down.
“Whoa!” Exclaimed the boy, whom Vision now recognised as Ned, a regular companion of Peter’s. “You’re The Vision!”
“I thought The Vision was dead?” Said the girl, confused.
“Well..” Before Vision could explain, there came a mighty roar from the Fire Elemental, as a tower of metal fell to be absorbed into it. “No time. Grab onto me, both of you!”
Beck seemed to be charging at the Monster, ignoring Peter’s desperate objections.
Back in the side-street while all that was going on, MJ had been nursing Wanda’s head in her lap, pressing a handful of tissues to her wound.
“Wake up, wake up, wake up..” MJ begged. “I am not cut out for this..” Slowly, the Scarlet Witch began to stir. “Oh, Thank Iron Man..” She didn’t exactly believe in God, but if there was an afterlife where dead people went, he was as good a person as any to thank, right?
Wanda winced at the throbbing pain in her head, blinking until her eyes focused on the concerned young face above her.
“Eugh.. What happened?”
“Uh.. The big fire thing, probably..”
“The Elemental! I have to get back..” Wanda leapt to her feet, and almost immediately stumbled.
“Whoa..” MJ ran to catch her. “Careful, you’ve probably got a concussion or something, and you’re still bleeding..”
Wanda blinked again, trying to clear a bit of the fuzziness from her mind. Looked toward the scene of the still raging battle. She could just see Vision hovering above the chaos, and knowing that he was alright, relaxed just a little, turning her attention to the girl who had been helping her. She looked familiar..
“Do I know you?..”
“You told me to run? Probably should have kept going, but I’m investigating this guy that I li.. I know. I’m.. My friends call me MJ.. Not that I’ve got that many.”
A small smile tugged at Wanda’s lips. So, this was the girl Peter liked so much. She had to say, she liked the boy’s taste, as she could see a little of herself in MJ. Wanda too had been the weird, socially awkward girl in High School.
“It was brave of you to help me, MJ” Wanda smiled. “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome..” MJ’s eyes lit up. “Hey, do you know Spider-Man? Because I have a theory about that guy I..”
The girl was interrupted by a large explosion, sending a ripple of strange green light through the streets of Prague.
Wanda gasped, as the explosion somehow sent crackle of static through her communicator.
Vision winced at the static himself as it caused a minor interference with some of his circuits, but quickly recovered. With Ned and the girl, Betty, now clinging to him, he couldn’t afford to falter.
“Are you two alright?”
“Yes, Mr. Vision, Sir” Ned replied, while Betty just hurriedly nodded.
Vision glanced around the aftermath of the explosion. He saw Peter running to the aid of a motionless Beck, and Harley climbing out of Fury’s car, which had pulled up in the closing moments of the battle. Reassured that his brothers were both safe, Vision turned his attention back to the task at hand.
“I’ll drop you both at your Hotel, alright?” He told his young charges, who both nodded.
Then, he had to find Wanda..
“It was nice to meet you, MJ, but I really should get back..” Wanda needed to find Vision, and check that the boys were okay. Still a little too dizzy to trust herself flying, she ran instead. “Get yourself back to the Hotel now, okay?”
“Right.. Oh, hey, I found this weird..” MJ opened her bag to try and show Wanda the strange object she’d found, but the Scarlet Witch had already disappeared into the returning crowd.
MJ shrugged, shutting it again. She’d just have to show Peter instead. That kid was definitely Spider-Man.
I know some of my followers love when I draw so here’s a video of me sketching my boi Tom
Assassin Spider-Man is one of my favorites in the spider-verse for his interesting concept; a Peter Parker so broken he decides to start killing. I love the suits design and color scheme, and I love the idea behind a Peter who keeps his goal to help people but breaks the no killing rule. Its a cool twist on the character and I wish there was more material on him than there is.

mysterio: i will ruin your happiness, no matter the cost!
peter: my happiness?
peter, to may: i’m happy?
happy: no, i’m happy, and i’m scared.
after the first few green goblin attacks, there’s this phenomenon of ppl (almost all of them young white men) dressing up in halloween costumes (both homemade & store bought) and going out to terrorize the streets of nyc, although there have been a few cases occurring outside the city limits (the farthest so far being a guy chasing cars down the road in a small town in ohio)
for the most part, the crimes these ppl commit are usually just armed robbery or scaring the shit out of ppl for their own amusement, but there have a small handful of instances where lives have been in danger.
for instance, in january 2017, a 21 yr old man dressed as the green goblin with a joker-esque grin broke into a sorority house in upstate new york and held 12 women hostage for almost three days, one of them allegedly being the man’s own sister. the man, whose name has yet to be released, was subdued and arrested after an almost three day standoff with police, thankfully with no casualties.
but now thanks to that guy, the nypd decided to open up a whole new division based solely on costumed criminals and how to spot them. and then the fbi got in on it, and now any and every place (both online and irl) that might sell costumes or costume materials is under near-constant surveillance, along with anyone who buys from these places and seems “sketchy” (which could mean anything from “really awkward around other ppl” to “regularly sends son of sam-esque letters to other ppl”
tdlr: a bunch of edgelord shitheads in nyc decided they wanted to be a green goblin copycat and then some dumbass in upstate ny did a major oopsie, and now anyone who buys a full-body costume more than a month away from october gets put on a watchlist
