THE COUNCIL OF HEROES II

In all of the campaigns of the Supreme Fighter, his elder brother Abel, and his younger sister and commander of his army Enam, accompanied him. A group of faithful companions from his childhood, from planet Zoe, and from his dimension, unreservedly adhered to his cause. Notable among them was Asvran of Rak, chief of the Special Forces of Ablom Empire. The Supreme Fighter also had a number of men walking by his side, some of whom were among the most redoubtable warriors of the universe.

Now the fall of Galaxy 7 shook the entire dimension, particularly the second galaxy. The ten inhabited planets were troubled seeing their galaxy was the next on Ablom list. It was in Galaxy Brave, second galaxy of Dimension 2C519, that Nootra, home world of superheroes, was found. Having raised a civilization of four thousand years, which experimented freedom, justice, love and truth, the Supreme Fighter’s campaign principally affected the Nootrans, as his demands went against everything their city stood for. Surrendering to him would mean the end of their culture and render obsolete everything their ancestors lived for.

The Nootrans were a people not ruled by an individual, a system or entity. They were people who trusted in their civilization with their countless heroes as champions of their cause. These had committed themselves to upholding those values, which citizens experienced in a practical way on a daily basis. Because of who they were, it was therefore impossible for them to give up their values by surrendering to someone whose will wasn’t the mind of their ancestors. The essence of Nootra Civilization was their freedom. They wouldn’t relinquish what liberated them from all servitudes, which permitted them to enjoy the unlimited treasures of existence.
So when the Supreme Fighter contacted NSF and gave them the ultimatum, the heroes left him no room for illusions. The Council stood as one and gave him a categorical no. Nootra’s response stimulated the other planets and they too refused to comply with the conqueror’s demands. Galaxy 2 then proceeded to launching a secret program aimed at raising a fighting unit to frustrate the enemy’s plans.

After receiving the response of the Brave, the Supreme Fighter moved the Ablom to Galaxy 1, which was loosely populated. With his multifaceted technologies, Kainos Ablom conquered it in no time, and made it his base of operation. He shortened the deadline against the Brave to three months. Whenever he threatened the total destruction of a galaxy, the Emperor of Rak had this habit of issuing an ultimatum accompanied by a deadline. He considered himself strongest man of the world and none had proven him wrong so far, for none of the fearsome fighters he confronted ever defeated him. So he never acted impulsively, but he gave time for his victims to weigh up the odds.

Following the present threat of the Supreme Fighter, the securities of the ten planets of Galaxy 2 convened a series of inter-planetary meetings, held in secret locations. They talked of attacking the Supreme Fighter in his ship. The most important point on the agenda was the creation of a galactic force to comprise warriors from the ten planets. Representatives of the different worlds kept in absolute secrecy what was discussed in these meetings, as the success of the operation depended on the element of surprise. Their dealings were held in complete confidentiality until their actualization. The delegates returned home after any of such meetings and reported the conclusions in the ears of the prominent people of their worlds.

The delegates from Nootra returned home and NSF called a meeting with its renowned heroes. These made up the Council of that session: Captain Nootra, Son Goku, Superman, Ancient One of Heyas, Ms Marvel, J’onn J’onzz, Iron Man, Invisible Woman, Mr Fantastic, Optimus Prime, Bulma, Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Professor Charles Xavier, Batman, Vegeta, Thor, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and other citizens. It was in the underground hall of Central Headquarters of Nootra Security Forces of Mid Nootra that they gathered. No sooner had they opened the session than L5 contacted the Council. The agents working in the spatial secret base of Mid Nootra reported having sighted Galactus approaching in their direction with a white flag tied to one of his fingers. The Council immediately dissolved and all agents present hurried to space, some using their flight mode, others through anti-gravitationals. They rushed to the edge of their planet to stop Galactus before he entered Nootra’s atmosphere.

The five headquarters and secret bases among other bases, agencies and security centres of Nootra had their weapons targeting the incoming villain while following his progression through their snipers. J’onn J’onzz had ordered his commanders not to shoot until they knew the intention of the planet devourer. A protective dome was activated the moment NSF captured the menace and a force field covered the whole planet, turning the sky over Nootra into yellow. This indicated to citizens to stay indoors. If the sky turned green, they were to carry out an evacuation plan they had been trained onto. This protection was only an indicator for NSF set up a greater defence since the time they heard of the menace of the Supreme Fighter. This invisible barrier enveloped the city to keep the people safe.

The agents reached the planet’s threshold and moved further away to keep Galactus as far off as possible from the city. Galactus collided with the superheroes while travelling to Nootra and NSF stood in his way and showed him they were not allowing him to gain any more space in that direction. Galactus stopped. He observed that the entire Council had displaced themselves to give him a cold welcome. Captain Nootra, Storm, Cyclops, Batman, Son Goku, Invisible Woman, Piccolo, Vegeta, J’onn J’onzz, Jean Grey, Iron Man, Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Mr. Fantastic, Wonder Woman, Thor and Superman all stood on full alert and followed the least of the devourer’s movement through their techs and sensorial faculties. He too passed his eyes on each one of them, staring hard at them.

Captain Nootra separated from the group and stepped forward to get closer to Galactus. He addressed their guest in an unfriendly tone. Galactus’ visit was undesirable. NSF didn’t want another villain to deal with now that the Supreme Fighter was behind their back.

Captain Nootra: “Why are you here, Galactus? Express your intention clearly and avoid being sarcastic for we’re not in the mood.”

Captain Nootra was impulsive so Piccolo followed him to the front to obtain a clear-cut reason for the coming of one of the dreaded super villains of the galaxy to the city.
