PHOTO PROMPT -Brenda Cox
This unit of Marvel’s finest heroes, Wanda Maximoff, Vision, Captain America, Winter Soldier, Shang-Chi, and Thor, were charged with protecting Paris from monsters. The Breach under the Pacific Ocean had been reopened with a 9.5-level earthquake, and Kaiju were streaming through. Their masters from the other dimension programmed them to disperse and destroy all humans.
I was on my usual bike courier route when cacophony exploded with rumbles, screams, roars, and screeching steel. I looked up as the marble building came down. If Wanda Maximoff hadn’t held the building, I would now be embedded within it like my bike.
I’m on the edge with my response to the prompt photo this week. I don’t think there are any rules against rotating images, but…. Then I pulled big Hollywood and comic book characters into the story. One is Marvel Comic Books and, by extension, movies based on them. The other is the film, Pacific Rim, which may or may not be based on comic books. I had a lot of fun writing it and I hope you enjoy the story.
