Heart of Ice


Clint swept the feet out from beneath one of the Chitauri and stabbed it in the chest with one of his arrows. Natasha and Gwen were ripping the circuitry from the neck of two others. Rogers was ordering a few cops around, making sure they were doing what he asked before coming over to them and joining the fray. Thor was taking down the ones approaching with his lightening. Gwen saw that when he landed, he gripped the car he landed by tightly, balancing himself.

She ran her eyes of his form and saw that he was bleeding from a wound in his side. Must have been during his standoff with Loki, she thought before blocking a hit from one of the Chitauri and putting a bullet through its eye. “What’s the story upstairs?” Rogers questioned.

“The power surrounding the Cube is impenetrable,” Thor supplied.

Thor’s right,” Tony added through the comm. “We got to deal with these guys.

“How do we do this?” Natasha asked.

“As a team,” was Rogers’ answer.

“I have unfinished business with Loki,” Thor insisted.

“Yeah? Well, get in line,” Clint said.

“Save it,” Rogers ordered sharply. “Loki’s going to keep this fight focused on us, and that’s what we need. Without him, these things could run wild. We got Stark up top. He’s going to need us to-” He trailed off when Bruce pulled up on an old motorbike. Everyone walked over to meet him, and Gwen smiled brightly at him.

“Glad you could make it,” she quipped.

“So, this all seems horrible,” Bruce said, looking around.

“I’ve seen worse,” Natasha added, looking warily at Bruce.

“Sorry,” Bruce apologized.

“No, we could use a little worse,” Natasha said with a small smile, accepting his apology in her own way.

“Stark, we got him,” Rogers said into the comm.

Banner?” Tony asked.

“Just like you said.”

Then tell him to suit up. I’m bringing the party to you.” Tony rounded a corner, followed by a leviathan.

“I don’t see how that’s a party,” Natasha and Gwen quipped. Tony flew down close to the ground as the leviathan followed him closely. Bruce turned, and began walking towards the oncoming leviathan.

“Doctor Banner,” Rogers said, moving forward. “Now might be a good time to get angry.”

“That’s my secret, Captain,” Bruce told him, turning towards him. “I’m always angry.” As he turned, green started taking over his features and he started growing. The Hulk punched the leviathan, immediately drawing it to a halt. The back of end of the leviathan kept going and was about to crash into them.

Hold on!” Tony aimed one of his missiles at the leviathan and everyone else dived for cover. It exploded a couple seconds later, and Clint covered Gwen with his body behind a parked car.

The Chitauri that had sprung from the leviathan that were clinging to the walls of buildings made a high-pitched scream of anger down at them and the Hulk roared back. Gwen noticed that when Tony flew down and landed on the ground, they had formed a circle. “Call it, Captain,” Tony said.

“Alright, listen up. Until we can close that portal, our priority is containment. Barton, I want you on that roof; eyes on everything. Call out patterns and strays. Stark, you got the perimeter. Anything that gets more than three blocks out, you turn it back or you turn it to ash,” Rogers ordered.

“Can you give me a lift?” Clint asked Tony.

Right,” Tony agreed, walking over to Clint and gripping the back of his shirt. “Better clench up, Legolas.” Gwen snorted at that and watched as Tony lifted Clint to the roof of one of the buildings.

“Thor,” Rogers resumed. “You got to try and bottleneck that portal. Slow them down. You got the lightning. Light the bastards up.” Thor got Mjolnir up to speed and took off. Rogers then turned to Natasha and Gwen. “You two and me, we stay here on the ground. We keep the fighting here. Hulk…” The Hulk turned with a grunt to look at him. “Smash.” The Hulk’s face morphed into a sinister smile and jumped onto the side of one of the buildings, taking out a few Chitauri.

Stark, you got a lot strays sniffing your tail,” Clint warned Tony of the comm.

I’m just trying to keep them off the streets,” Tony quipped.

Well, they can’t bank worth a damn, so find a tight corner."

I will, roger that.” A couple seconds later, Gwen heard Tony’s voice in her ear again. “What else you got?

Thor is taking on a squadron down on sixth,” Clint informed him.

And he didn’t invite me," Tony said, sounding offended. Gwen and Natasha rolled their eyes at each other before Gwen shot down a few of them with her ice covered bullets, and Natasha was grappling with one of them. She managed to get her legs around its neck and pulled out some things before grabbing its staff and blasts one of them before rounding on Rogers. She leaned against the cab she was just on, and looked up.

“Captain, none of this is going to mean a damn thing if we don’t close that portal.” Gwen nodded her agreement.

“I’m with Tasha, Cap.”

“Our biggest guns couldn’t touch it,” Rogers said with an air of exasperation.

“Well, maybe it’s not about guns,” Natasha reasoned.

“What do you have in mind?” Gwen questioned. She looked up at the tower, and Gwen got it. “Oh.”

“If you want to get up there, you’re going to need a ride,” Steve said.

“I got a ride,” Natasha said, tossing the staff at Gwen. She caught it easily and watched as Natasha back up, looking up at a group of Chitauri flying above them. “I could use a boost, though.” Rogers backed up, and held up his shield.

“Are you sure about this?” He asked.

“Yeah, Natasha said with some uncertainty. “It’ll be fun.” She ran towards the cab, pushed off of it, jumped on Cap’s shield, and he tossed her up in the air. She grabbed a hold of one of Chitauri things.

“Looks like it’s just us now,” Rogers said, looking at Gwen.

“Looks like it, Captain.”


Everyone in Xavier mansion, but Raven and the kids, were sitting in the living room and watching the battle going on. Alex watched as his sister battled some alien-like creatures side-by-side with Captain-fucking-America. “This is killing me,” Charles groaned, putting his head in his hands. Erik rested his hand on Charles’ shoulder in a comforting manner.

“She’ll be okay,” he soothed.

“There are only seven of them against a fucking army!” Sean exploded. “How the hell is she going to be okay?!”

“Sean,” Alex started. “You know as well as I do that Gwen is a fighter. She’ll make it through this and be back to crack jokes with us soon.”

“She better be,” Sean muttered angrily, sitting back down. Alex let out a sigh, and continued watching the news. A flustered looking brunette appeared in front of the camera.

“[i]For those of you just tuning in, Manhattan has been under attack by what seems to be aliens. Tony Stark’s Iron Man, the green monster that destroyed Harlem a couple years ago, an amazing Captain America look-alike, and a couple others are battling against the alien army.[/i]” The camera panned in on Gwen and Captain America. “[i]It looks like one of them is a mutant,[/i]” she added when Gwen made a spear-like weapon out of ice and proceeded to stab a few of them in the heart and head.

“She’s bleeding,” Hank piped up suddenly.

“What?” Erik questioned.

“Look at her left arm. There are blood trails going down her arm. She’s injured.” They watched her fight and noticed that she was favoring her left shoulder and taking hits with the right. While she was fighting one, another one appeared behind her and blasted her with its staff.

“No,” Alex groaned when it hit her on her right thigh, slicing the skin. She dropped to the ground and Captain America hit the alien with his shield. He offered Gwen and hand, and helped her up. She was putting most of her weight on her left leg, and was breathing hard.

They watched her scoop up a staff and start blasting away at them. She yelled something at Captain America and he looked over at a building to his right and ran over. “He’s leaving her?” Sean questioned in disbelief.

“I think she told him to go,” Hank stated.

“Doesn’t fucking matter,” Alex hissed. “She’s injured.”

“Language, Alex,” Charles said automatically.

“Sorry, Prof,” the blond apologized. Gwen was doing well on her own but her head whipped around when she saw Captain America get blasted out of a window and smash into a car. She ran over to him, seemingly ignoring the cut on her leg and helped him off the car.

A few minutes later, Thor appeared and helped them out. “They’re losing,” Hank said suddenly, leaning forward in his chair. “What are you talking about?” Sean asked.

“The Hulk is getting hit by at least two dozen blasts at once. The archer guy just had to make a detour through a window. I don’t even see the redhead woman anymore. Iron Man just got blasted out of the sky. I seriously think they’re losing.” Alex felt his heart clench and a sort of whine clawed its way out of Sean’s throat.

“She’s going to be okay,” Sean muttered, seemingly to fold in on himself. “She has to be okay.”


I can close it. Can anybody copy? I can shut the portal down.” Gwen paused in her fight to listen to what Natasha just said. She shared a glance with Rogers.

“Do it!” He shouted into the comm.

No, wait!

“Tony?” Gwen questioned.

“Stark, these things are still coming,” Rogers stated, confused.

I got a nuke coming in. It’s going to blow in less than three minutes,” was Tony’s reply. Gwen let out a startled gasp and looked at Rogers with wide eyes. “And I know just where to put it.”

“Stark, you know that’s a one-way trip,” Rogers added. Tony didn’t say anything and Gwen watched as Tony swooped in carrying a missile on his back. He glided up the side of Stark Tower and straight into the portal.
