MING & the Loveless Family : the New Adventures of Iron Claw
Chapter 1: A Troubled Youth!
The year is 2017 at a dirty and dingy place where underground cage fights are being held a masked woman wearing goggles is in the crowd watching the bloody fights. After the last fight ends the host of the cage fights asks who among the crowd would like to step up and give it a tried. The masked woman raises her hand. " I'll do it, " The masked woman said.
The host looks at the masked woman." Huh, Siphon wait. What would she be doing here of all places, and since when did she wear a white mask, " the Host said in a confused tone.
The masked woman just stares at the man. " I don't know who this Siphon is but I'm not her!" The Mask woman said.
The host looks at the masked woman." So who are you then ?" The host said.
The Mask woman comments on this," I'm Iron Claw and I want to take on the toughest opponent you have, " Iron Claw said.
The host looks at the woman." Okay but first you must pass the examination. This is a meta only fight after all! So if you don't an ability then you can't challenge champ it's as simple as that," the host said.
The host takes out a device from his pocket and uses to scan Iron Claw. " This device is an ability scanner it can pick up rather or not you have an ability. It has a 100% success rate! " The Host said.
The host looks at the readings on his device which read no power detected. " Okay so your just a normal girl. Well, tough luck kid but you have to leave !" The host said.
Iron Claw stares at the man." I'm not leaving until I fight your champion!" Iron Claw said
The Host comments on this. " Look kid this is for metas only and your clearly not a meta so you will have to leave!" The host said.
With a flash, Iron claw is already in the ring and the host looks at her dumbfounding. " Huh, how in the hell did she get over there without me noticing, my enhance vision should have been able to track her movements. Hey you get out of the ring now I told you this is for metas only!" the host said.
A tall Lanky woman who is in the ring looks at the host." It's all right Tom I Askua Mazauakioi will be a delight to crush this powerless girl!" Askua said.
Iron Claw looks at Askua and sighs." Is this a joke I ask for your toughest fighter not this beanpole here!" Iron Claw said.
Tom puts on a big smile. " This is our toughest fighter Askuka show her," Tom said.
Askua smiles and suddenly she starts increasing her size and muscle mass until she's as big as the hulk. Askua looks down on Iron Claw. " What was that about me being a beanpole little girl!" Askua said.
Tom looks at Iron Claw." Well, it's been nice knowing you girl," Tom said. (Poor girl she's not going to less even a second against Askua, ) Tom thought.
Tom flips a switch and puts up a barrier. " Okay now that the barrier is up the fight can begin, who will win ladies and gentleman Askua or the powerless newcomer Iron Claw? My money is on Askua," Tom said.
Askua strikes at Iron claw and Iron claw is caught by surprise as Askua giant fist slams into her. Iron claw is sent flying into the barrier which she bounces off of. Iron claw coughs up blood." Shit, she's faster and stronger than she looks, if I was a human that attack just now would have killed me, Iron Claw said.
Iron claw fights Askua in a bloody cage match dodging her blows and each blow from Askua has enough force to pulverize a building to dust. Iron Claw trades blows with Askua and is doing damage to her despite being weaker than Askua due to the hardness of her metal hands.
Tom notices something strange is going on." Wait she's actually damaging Askua but how is that possible? She doesn't have any ability I check, and my device is never wrong!" Tom said.
During the match, Askua looks at a bruised and bloody Iron claw." I'm going to let you in on a little secret I'm going easy on you little girl since you have no powers!" said Asuka.
Iron claw wipes the blood off her mouth and brings out her claws." come on give me your best shot!" Iron Claw said.
Askua delivers a powerful blow that has the force of a tactical nuke and Iron claw somehow withstands the attack much to Askua bewilderment." Huh, she didn't budge from my attack, how the hell is that possible? What the hell is going on here, Tom I thought you said she didn't have any powers ?" Askua said.
Tom looks at Askua." Yeah, my device-detect she didn't have any powers and it's never wrong. So I don't know what in the hell is going on!" Tom said in a nervous tone.
Iron Claw smiles. (These metal wings of mine are useful as a shield, and it's a good thing I'm camouflage otherwise that brute would have noticed my metal wings,) Iron Claw thought.
Askua keeps striking at Iron Claw, but Iron Claw doesn't seem to be giving an inch. (This makes no sense I was pummeling her ass before. So how in the hell could I not budge her now unless of course, she's using a barrier of some kind? Wait she doesn't have any powers so how could she use a barrier to protect herself from my blows, unless of course, she's one of those that uses tech to cheat in that case I just attack her from behind,) Askua thought.
Askua quickly appears behind Iron claw and grabs her from behind in a bear hug. "I'm going to grind your bones into dust little girl," Askua said. Askua tightens her grip and Iron claw tries to back free as she grins in intense pain. Askua keeps on applying more pressure.
" I must admit you are tougher than you look little girl normally my opponents snap easily when I do this, but not you! You seem a lot denser then you appear little girl which makes it all the more joy to crush you," Askua said. Iron claw launches a counter-attack stab Askua in the gut a dozen of times until she let's go.
Askua looks at the blood on her shirt. " Damn you do you know how much this shirt cost," Askua yelled.
Iron claw just looks at Askua. " I don't care I came here looking for a fight. So are you going to continue this fight or you just going to stand their whining about a stupid shirt, " Iron Claw said.
Askua gets angry at Iron claw's comment." Oh, I'm going to enjoy crushing you!" Askua said. Iron Claw and Askua continue their fight as Iron claw viciously strikes at Askua craving up her body with her metal claws.
Tom who is watching the fight comments, " Ladies and gentleman we have never witnessed such a violent and bloody fight as this before. What's more, it seems that the newcomer is holding her own against Askuka which is a first!" Tom said.
(But how is this seemingly powerless girl able to go toe to toe with Askua? It just doesn't make any sense. Askua should be able to crush her easily! That power, that speed it shouldn't be possible, ) Tom thought.
Tom looks at his device. (How can this girl be strong enough to go toe to toe with Askua and have such speed. My device didn't pick up her having super strength or speed, or any ability for that matter. Wait unless that's just her natural strength and speed, but that's impossible how can anything be naturally that strong and fast, However, I guess it's the only explanation that makes sense, ) Tom thought.
Askua just then realizes something. (That move she did just now that was one of my moves dammit this twerp is copying my moves, what is she a freaking monkey? Heh if she thinks she can beat me just by copying me that bitch has another thing coming!) Askua thought.
Tom and the crowd watch the gruesome fight unfold as both Iron claw and her opponent trade blows with each other. Askua delivers a mighty blow that sends Ming to her knees. Ming coughs up blood and Askua looks at.
" Heh looks like you're not totally covered in armor, See I been studying you this entire fight and notice something you have on some kind of invisible high tech armor plating! That's why you were able to stand toe to toe against me, too bad that armor of yours doesn't cover you completely," Askua said.
Askua stares menacingly at Iron Claw." Yeah, I thought I was going to lose there, but now that I know were to aim this will be as fire victory for me. I admit you were a tough opponent, but it's over, and with this final blow I will be declared the winner of this fight!" Askua said.
Just as Askua is about to deliver the final blow she feels a strong gust of wind temporary blinds her." Huh, where in the hell is this gust of wind coming from ?" Askua said.
She regains her sight and sees Ming standing in a disturbing position. " Hey what the hell is wrong with you?" Askua said.
Ming just stares at Askua. " I will not lose I refuse, to lose," Ming mutters under her breath.
Ming's hair turns Fiery red and glowing pink swirling patterns appear on her body. Ming then lifts up her head, and when she looks up at Askua her eyes are a bright yellow.
Askua looks at the Ming in shock." This is most peculiar did she just transform? No matter I'm sure it won't be enough to stand against my might," Askua said.
Askua delivers a blow and suddenly Ming vanishes. " What the hell she wasn't this fast before," Askua said. Askua then delivers a blow that sends a shock wave that affects the entire area it knocks Ming down, but she gets back up." What the hell it's like she's not even registering pain anymore, It's like she's become completely berserk," Askua said.
Askua continues to fight Ming in a bloody battle but in the end, Ming's sheer savagery and ferociousness win out as she claws up Askua's face and the sight is just gruesome as Ming mimics the striking motions of a bear. Tom flips the switch and walks into the cage and attempts to pull Iron claw off the tried and exhausted Askua. " Come on that's enough killing isn't allow," Tom said in a worried tone.
After hearing Tom's peels and see the fear in Askua's eyes Ming snaps back to normal and returns to her base form. Ming then grabs Tom by the collar." I'll be taking my prize money now!" Ming said.
Tom reluctantly announces Iron Claw as the winner. " Ladies and gentleman we have ourselves a new champion Iron Claw," Tom said.
Ming looks at Tom." I don't care about being champion, I just wanted the prize money," Iron Claw said in cold tone.
Tom hands Iron claw a large sum of money, and she walks off. Outside Iron claw lies next to a tree and starts hearing a godly sounding voice in her head. " This isn't how the Dragon Saint is supposed to act, there is no honor in competing in such a barbaric act. What's worse of all you went berserk and you could have killed that young girl," The voice said.
Ming looks at the ground. " So she shouldn't have pissed me off, and besides I'm half Asura so the tendency for violence is in my nature Why do you care anyway just leave me alone," Ming said in an uncaring tone.
Ming picks up a rock and tosses it. " Don't want to be the Dragon Saint, my honor die a long time ago, and what's so good about being the Dragon Saint. Being the Dragon Saint has given me nothing by heartbreak and sorrow." Ming said.
The Voice comments on this, " You are being selfish Ming, this isn't about you it's about your duty as Dragon Saint to protect China and the people that live in it. As my avatar you have a great responsibility to your kind," the voice said.
Ming laughs at the comment." Why should I even bother protecting those who don't give a rat's ass about me? I was done being the Dragon Saint, and I'm done with having the weight of an entire country on my shoulders!" Ming said.
Ming picks up another rock and tosses it." Besides, why would I be welcome back in China anyway, I went on a rampage as the One Hundred Head Beast and devastating the country. I'm the country's number one criminal at the moment," Ming said.
The voice comments on this," That doesn't mean you should just run away from your responsibility as the Dragon Saint, " the Voice said.
Ming comments on this," I'm not running and besides I have a new life with Raven Loveless and her family now," Ming said.
The voice comments back, "Do you think that woman sees you as a person? " The voice said.
Ming comments on this," I don't care what she sees me as long as I have a roof over my head," Ming said.
The voice goes away and Ming looks up at the sky." I may have forsaken my duties as the Dragon Saint, but I don't care! Yeah I have a new life and for once I get to do things I could never do as the Dragon Saint, like have fun, " Ming said.
Ming picks up yet another rock and tosses it. As the Dragon Saint, it was always duty this and duty that. I never got any time to have fun or to make friends. My Duty as a Dragon Saint came first but not anymore, I have to thank my new mother raven for making this camouflage device it works wonders." Ming said.
Ming than gets up and looks up at the sky. " I better not let her know that I was taking part in a cage fight or my brother Nemesis. Well, anyways this prize money should be enough for a quick snack. " Ming said
Meanwhile, a deep sub in the Pacific Ocean is exploring its depths when the crew inside sees a cloaked figure facing a monstrous sea creature." The captain looks at this. " A crew member said.
The captain looks at the figure with a shocking expression on his face." Who in the hell is that, and why in the hell doesn't she have any diving equipment? Wait is that person actually thinking of taking on that such a huge creature? Unless she's a meta she must have a damn death wish," The captain said.
One officer taps the Captain on the shoulders." Captain, we check our readings and it seems like this person doesn't have any powers," the officer said.
Captain comments on this in shock." So she's not meta than that person must really have a damn death wish !" the Captain said.
Outside the submarine, the cloaked figure is talking to the creature in a stern tone with a strong feminine voice, " Just when I was about to catch that squid you large dumb ass just had to come along and snatch! I was so looking forward to fixing some Calamari !" The cloaked woman said.
note: cover by Johnathan Young
The Cloak woman Points at the large creature." Well, I guess you will have to do for now!" the cloaked woman said. The cloaked woman pulls her right arm back and throws what seems like just a standard straight punch at a monstrous sea creature.
The force of the punch causes a massive shock wave that knocks the submarine back and sea creature explodes from the force put on it. blood and guts rain down on the figure.
Inside the Deep sub the crew after witness what happen start to freaking out shocking. " Huh what the hell was that?" an officer said.
The Captain looks at the cloaked woman in shock." That woman doesn't have any powers, and yet she took out that sea monster in only one punch!" The Captain said.
The cloaked woman looks at the bloody mess that used to be the sea monster in front of her." Dammit, I used a little too much force! Oh well, I guess that's still some of it left for me to eat! Still, I can't believe they send me to retrieve that brat Ming," the Cloaked woman said.
The Cloaked woman wipes the blood and guts off her cloak. " If that brat what's to forsaken her duties as the Dragon Saint, then I say just let her ! still, I'm not seeking that brat to bring her back to China! I'm seeking to mentor her to be my successor, and pass down my fighting style to her," the Cloaked woman said.
The Cloaked woman rubs her chin. " There's that female human who I thought that now works for LION as an important figure, but I not sure she will be a worthy successor to the Fist of the Dragon. So that's why I'm seeking this girl Ming to see if she can become a worthy successor to the Fist of the Golden Dragon! I face many opponents I even fought the lord of Darkness Dracula once perhaps my greatest foe," the Cloaked woman said
The Cloaked Woman tilts her head. " Yet I never lost a fight not even to Dracula, and no one I fought has pushed me harder than he has. Dealing with that brat Ming should be a piece of cake compare to him. When I find Her I will put her to the test to see if she has what it takes to be my disciple, " the Cloaked woman said.
The cloaked woman suddenly spreads her cloak apart to reveal that it's a pair of massive wings. "Hmm speaking of Dracula I heard that his half-human daughter Carmella works for LION. I like to test her power myself but I have other priorities !" Like finding that brat Ming," the cloaked woman said.
The Woman swims to the surface and flies up into the sky." I'm Madam Bu the strongest martial artist in the world, So just not anyone can be my successor!" Madam Bu said.
Madam Bu goes deep in thought. " To think that girl is the direct descendant of Guan Yu! I wonder what he would have said if he met her, what words of wisdom would he give her? I have no doubt in my mind that Guan Yu might not approve of his descendant's attitude, " Madam Bu said.
Madam Bu looks at the ocean below her. " She's the daughter of one of my best students Wong Fei. Hopefully, she can live up to his legacy! Fei was a great man and it's a shame that his life was cut short by Xìngfú, I hope that Xingfu finally realizes that he cost the Azure Kingdom a great warrior," Madam Bu said.
Later at a Pawnshop in a place called Golden Panda Gardens, a Sleazy looking man has just finish ripped off his latest suckers when he sees what appears to be three people walk in wearing what he thinks are Halloween costumes. He looks at the costumes." Whoa, what's up with the costumes it's not Halloween, now if you're not here to buy something, then get the hell out of my store, " the sleazy man said.
One of three girls wearing a leather jacket with the symbol for a dragon on it stares at the man." Oh we're not here to go shopping, We're here to tell your time is up, Lilly, get in here!" the girl said.
A blonde hair girl walks in wearing a red dress and looks at the man with a crazed look in her eyes." Oh, so this is the scum bag huh! So what do you want me to do Mei, stop his heart, ripped him apart from the inside, or do you want me to slowly peel off his skin?" Lily said.
Mei looks at Lilly." Just keep him still," Mei said. The man feels a force that lifts him in the air and pins him to a wall. Mei who is a humanoid dragon with black and golden scales looks at the man. " You are going to pay for every person you have wronged!" Mei said in a cold tone.
The man looks at Mei with fear in his eyes. " Look isn't this a little excessive all I did was ripped off a couple of suckers. Besides, I'm not doing anything illegal," the man said.
Mei laughs at this." You're just exploiting a loophole that allows you to rip people off without paying any consequences! Well, I just have this to say to you, you reap what you sow!" Dizzy, Rei search around if you find anyone killed them," Mei said.
Dizzy and Rei search around while Lilly and Mei look at the man with Mei slowly cutting his skin with her claws. Blood drips down the man's face. " You people are crazy! I did nothing wrong, " the man said. "
Lily laughs at this." Yeah right, tell that to the people you wrong asshole!" Lily said.
The man hears screams and then sees Rei walking towards Mei holding the woman's severed head with blood dripping from it. the man looks at the severed head in horror." What the hell that was my wife, what the hell did she do to do deserve that!" the man said.
Rei a tall muscular furry demon girl who is wearing a similar outfit to Mei complete with matching symbol stares at the man. " She said she was associated with you, so I killed her! Anyone who associates with scum like you deserves to be killed! Don't you agree, Dizzy," Rei Said in a cold tone.
Dizzy the Harpy is seen flipping her wings in place in the air carrying a dead body with her bird-like feet." Yeah, I agree anyone who associated with scum is scum themselves and deserve to die!" Dizzy said.
The Man breaks down in tears." You kill my wife and my teenage son who did nothing wrong. You people are fucking nuts! What the hell did I do deserve this, " the man said.
Mei stares at the man." Oh, let me think it's because of all the people you ripped off include my friend Lilly here!" Mei said.
The Man comments on this, " Huh I don't remember that name," the man said.
Mei stares at the man." Well, think harder!" Mei said.
The Man looks at Lily. " Oh I remember you, you're that little girl I ripped off with that overprice doll, " the Man said.
Lilly comments on this, " Yeah it was a piece of junk, and you sold it to my father for 100 dollars!" Lily said.
The man looks at Lily. " Hey that was a long time ago, and look I'm sorry I ripped you off, but it doesn't mean you have to come here with your friends crash my shop and kill my family. That just nuts," the Man said.
Lily laughs at this. " But I had to make sure you would never wrong anyone else ever again! Hey Mei can I kill him now?" Lily said.
Mei gives Lily a thumbs up." Go ahead be my guest!" Mei said as she bites off one of the man's fingers.
The man feels a strange force on his heart and suddenly the man coughs up blood as he feels his heart getting crushed. After a while, the man stops cough up blood and Lily let him go. he falls to the ground dying in a pool of his own blood.
Dizzy takes out her phone and shows a youtube clip of Ming fighting Asuka." Hey, girls look what I found on youtube!" Dizzy said.
Mei looks at it. " I know her that's the Dragon Saint what is she doing in an underground cage match ?" Mei said.
Mei observes the fight that Dizzy is showing her." Well whatever the case I like her style it's savage and brutal, I think she will make a nice addition to our crew! Now, who are we girls? " Mei said.
Dizzy, Lily, and Rei raise their hands in the air. The M-Squad!" Dizzy, Lily, and Rei yelled.
Ming smiles at this." And what is our motto?" Mei said.
The girls pump their hands in the air." To make evildoers reap what they sow!" Dizzy, Lily, and Rei yelled.
Mei looks at the dead bodies and laughs. " That's right we deliver justice where the law can't, we are the M-Squad!" Mei said. "
