Marduk - Clash Of The Titans

[Toggle Names]

Description: Marduk, enraged at being wrongfully accused by Interpol, goes all the way to Metro City to protest the UN. Unfortunately for him? The Mad Gear security venture doesn't take kindly to trespassers, and when Marduk makes enough of a hectic, it's time for the Big Wheels to come up, by the name of Abigail.



[MARDUK]
Marduk was a little teed off.

See, Marduk was wrongfully imprisoned in Australia, blamed for a crime he didn't commit. He was also blamed for crimes he did commit, of course, but there was -one- crime he was blamed for that he did not commit: criminal bombings. Thanks to a loophole in Australia law (as Australians are well renowned for their legal loopholes, as per their criminal heritage), Marduk was let free, with a full pardon, after a traditional booting as per Australian tradition. After paying a fine of 900 dollarydoos (the official currency of Australia), Marduk could enjoy his home country in peace once again.

And yet, he still felt he had not received Justice.

Marduk, being a respectable man, could not stand for the fact that he was arrested by Interpol, and charged, without any apologies. Naturally, he has nothing better to do than politely visit the United Nations in Metro City, which he quickly researches and finds out is in America. A quick flight and a visit to the car rental place is all he needs. Marduk figures, with some careful math, that he could simply visit the UN. That might be enough for people to think he isn't crossing a line.

It is around the time he drives through the security checkpoint that people might consider him crossing a line.

"GET OUT OF MY WAY, BITCHES!" The hairy titan of a man bellows as he stomps on the gas pedal of his covertable black Hummer, with the top down of course. The towering man was dressed in his kneepads, elbowpads, and neon-green and purple shorts, driving through the security checkpoint. Honking his horn, he drives faster and faster, trying to manuveur his car to a proper parking spot somewhere inside the UN grounds. Which would be a lot easier IF ALL THESE PEOPLE WERE OUT OF HIS WAY. "HOLY CRAP! WHY IS THERE SO MANY PEOPLE WALKING AROUND!" Marduk screams as he steers, the tires screeching as he whips donuts with his Hummer, the vehicle on not flipping over because of the massive girth of the massive wrestler. Marduk suddenly clips a strange man in a neon vest and a mohawk, sending him flying. Marduk rolls his eyes.

"I SAID MOVE, MORON!"

[ABIGAIL]
Turns out that being side swipped by a hummer driven by a man big enough to inherit his own zip codes is -actually- enough to knock somebody for a loop and send them sprawling through the air wit rag doll physics on full display. The poor guy clears a full row of cars and -looks- like he's going to keep going until there's a sudden meaty obstruction as a loud *THWAM* resounds through the area. The mohawked guy, poor J, finds himself literally flattened against what appears to be a chest so massive it is wider then some full sized cars are long and thick and dense enough to literally briefly entrap mohawk dude with its immensity before he peels off and rebounds with a loud into the cement with an audible groan of "Whyyyyyy..." escaping him in a daze.

As to the hulking monstrosity that poor ol' J just slammed into, he just sort of just stands there like some mutant monolith, glaring down at the groaning J while his muscles slowly creak and swell larger and larger as agitation begins to brim within him. "J!!!" roars Abigail, "Watch where you're going!!!"

J doesn't answer.

And so Abigail looks up, tracking the flight path and seeing..A Hummer.

"Augh! Not on my watch! Vrrooooommm!!!"

It's at this point that Marduk would probably feel the ground begin to literally shake as Abigail begins walking forward, literally through the rows of cars sseperating him from the Aussie and the offending vehicle. His gargantuan feet begin literally treading over parked cars In the way crumpling roofs, hoods, flattening motorcycles and leaving a debris field behind him as he essentially begins a mini kaiju on his approach to the offense.

He's also got a teeny tiny gold star pinned to his grey tee-shirt that looks like a sheriff's star a child might have. Local security indeed.

"Hey, you!!!" he booms at Marduk, huge shadow engulfing wrestler and Hummer both.

[MARDUK]
But as he continues to make donuts in the parking area, he suddenly... registers something is wrong. The hummer comes screeching into a halt, stopping short of it's spinning. The stench of burning rubber was -heavy- in the air. And yet, Marduk glances over to the sound of crunching metal. His eyes goes wide. And then, he just sputters out, jaw dropping.

"Holy shit."

As the towering figure continues to lumber closer, Marduk narrows his eyes. His eyes goes up and down, studying the figure. Smashing through everything. And finally, his eyes rest on the star. The gears turn in Marduk's head. And then, he leans over the edge of the Hummer, nearly tipping it over, looking around Abigail.

"There are parking spots over there!"

Marduk snaps back into the car, which rocks back and forth. Slamming his foot on the pedal, he begins to accelerate again. The engine roars, as he steers. And looking -right- at Abigail, he starts driving the Hummer -straight- for Abigail. Honking the horn like a madman, the brawler roars out.

"GET OUT OF THE WAY PINHEAD, I'M PARKING!"

[ABIGAIL]
Abigail's eyes widen ever so slightly as he gets a good look at Marduk and then takes note of the Hummer seemingly aiming right at him, "H....hey! Pay attention!" he roars followed by a, "And I aint got no pinhead!" as if that's actually something of a sore spot for him considering his monstrous physique.

Oh..yeah..The Hummer is racing right at him.

Abigail purses his lips in what could be construed as mild annoyance at this situation and he shows no signs of having any intention of moving out of the way. Instead, like some sort of a juggernaut, he continues approaching, closing the distance on the racing Hummer, leaving footprints embedded in the concrete behind him from the force of his steps.

At the last possible moment he braces his immense form and then thrusts his huge arms forward at the Hummer. Monstrous palms slam into it and the force of the impact shatters nearby windshields and car door windows. "KABOOOM!" he roars.

Abigail is pushed back..slightly. His feet skid backwards but then his legs bulge and he braces, digging in and beginning to ramp up the counter force until The Hummers wheels are literally spinning in place. And then he begins to push backwards against it as the front end starts to compress around his monstrous arms.

"Only 393 hp?? Looks like you need more horsepower!"

At that his huge arms wrench backwards and to the side as he moves to literally lift and manhandle the Hummer, sending it over onto it side and hurtling away from him.

[MARDUK]
See, Marduk solves most of his problems by running over them.

So when the car comes to a -stop- with the pedal to the metal, Marduk doesn't quite register what is going on. As the hard -crash- comes, Marduk flies out of the Hummer, launched from the vehicle over the hood. Hitting it hard, and rolling off, he groans, the brawler rises up into a stand. "Thank goodness I wasn't buckled in!" He says aloud, as he looks back over. Just in time to see Abigail lift and -hurl- the car away.

"OH MY CAR!"

Shouts Bred, grabbing his head, as the Hummaer crashes into a 1997 Honda Civic. Marduk -scowls- at him. "Excuse me, that's -my- line!" Marduk turns to Abigail, and strides up, cracking his knuckles, Marduk looks down. "And Pipsqueak, the only HORSEPOWER you GOT is the MISTAKE YOU JUST MADE. A DAMN BIG MISTAKE wrecking my... wrecking my..."

Marduk scratches his head.

"Hang on, uh." He considers, thinking hard. He stares down, and gradually tracks his eyes on the star. He opens his eyes wide. And then he looks down. He counts on his fingers. "Oh." Says Marduk, looking up.

"You're bigger than me."

Marduk pauses again.

"Oooooooh."

[ABIGAIL]
Abigail grins. The look resembling more that of a crazed pitbull then a man. His neck swells, nearly popping the collar loose and the skull print tee shirt strains to the limit as his torso widens bigger and bigger, filling up Marduks vision even more.

He spreads his gigantic arms wide, fingers splayed out, looking ready to completely envelop Marduk in some sort of mountain wrenching bear hug as the man stands there, dumbfounded at the huge beasts immensity. And then:

"Abigail's Scrap Metal!!"

Why..yes. of course this is the perfect time to advertise. Ones business The tire bands around his arms stretch to their splitting point as the giant flexes and then points at them.

"Repair Garage, Scrap yard -and- we mod! You need a bigger, badder ride then that junk heap you came in here in. Some come on down to Metro City Bay area and tell them 'Abi' sent you for a 10 percent discount on new tires!"

There's a long pause as the giant lets his arms drop to his sides and he just looks down at Marduk, waiting for a response. Somewhere, crickets chirp and a lone piece of metal falls crashes from a nearby ruined car.

"Oh yeah.." Abigail adds while lacing his fingers together and cracking his knuckles, producing a sound like tree trunks splitting. "First...I crush you.."

[MARDUK]
Marduk tries to process the trouble he is in.

And then he gets a sales pitch at him. Marduk stares, jaw slack, listening to the pitch. Marduk nods along, not showing any emotion other than dumbfounded. Mouthing back every word, it finally reaches the long pause. Marduk tilts his head, and looks around at the other security. He isn't... quite understanding. As Abigail starts cracking his knuckles, though, Marduk grins. "Alright, that's the kind of stuff I like. You wanna fight? You think I'm scared of you... scared of you..."

"... ABIGAIL?"

Marduk begins to crack up. "Oh my god- ABIGAIL? You're name is ABIGAIL? That's a GIRL'S NAME! A sissy GIRL'S Name! BWA HA HA" Marduk doubles over with laughter, bellowing out loud as he just goes out, guffawing. "ABIGAIL?! AND YOU WANT ME TO CALL YOU ABBY!? OH GOD I DATED AN ABBY IN HIGH SCHOOL! OH GOD! YOU ARE NAMED THE SAME AS MY EX GIRLFRIEND! Oh kay. Oh kay." Marduk catches his breath. He blinks, looking back up at the towering man. And he snorts.

"And you aren't a girl, but a BIG GUY!"

That is what gives Marduk a second wind of laughter. "OH MY GOD, AND YOU HAVE A TANK TOP TOO! YOU AREN'T A GIRL, BUT YOU HAVE A GIRL'S SHIRT! AND MAKE UP! OH I CAN'T BREATH! I CANNOT BREATH, GOD DAMN!" Marduk actually holds on to Abigail's leg, leaning over, tears coming down his cheeks as he is overwhelmed. "Ah ha, oh, oh kay Abi." Marduk wipes away a tear. "I gotta ask you something." He says, getting a lot more serious all of a sudden. "Do you repair Hummers, Abby?"

"Cause that was a rental."

[ABIGAIL]
Dead silence. Somewhere else, J has climbed quickly into Abigail's monster truck and is quickly putting riot-gear and other additional body armor to..protect himself from any collateral damage such as thrown cars, collapsing roofs, etc.

The ground begins to literally tremble from Abigail's muscles twitching and his enormous foot tapping. As Craig laughs and leans against his leg, he can feel Abigail's body temperature rising. One can practically imagine the temperature gauge in a car revving over into the danger zone. Literal steam begins rising off of his body. And then...

"IT'S ABI-GAIIIIIL!!" roars the goliath . The booming voice of the behemoth cracks some windows. Shatters others. His entire upper body swells bigger, like noticeably. His proportions erupting from what was already cartoonishly freakish to downright mutant madness as his body seems to literally glow red with heat. "VRRROOOOOM!"

Abigail's monstrous arm comes hurtling around as his body twists into it, intending on following this initial strike up with another one that's sure to send even someone the size of Marduk hurtling into the air should it impact.

[MARDUK]
Marduk couldn't believe the outburst.

He thought he was very reasonable, pointing out how stupid Abigail's name was. And now after he expected him to fix his Hummer for free, the meathead was throwing a maximum tantrum. Marduk actually has to step back at the explosion, as finally, the titan of the man comes hurling into the tinier titan. Marduk's technique comes first, as he instinctively comes into a defenses stance. The first blow is deflected, sent aside as Marduk steadily steps back. The second one, however, is caught straight on, the blow coming into his palm. "Hah! That was-"

"Oh, wait, Ow!"

Marduk winces, shaking his hand. He looks at it.... and it was swelling? Bruises? Marduk thinks for a second.

"Oh."

"You're bigger than me, and stronger than me."

"... Oooooh."

MArduk slaps his face. "Oh no way. I'm not gonna get run over by any ABBY BABBY! You done messed with the bull Abigail... pfft.... I mean you done messed with the bull! And when you mess with the bull, you know what you ride? You know what you ride ABBY? YOU KNOW WHAT YOU RIDE?!"

"YOU RIDE THE MARDUK EXPRESS!"
"CHOO CHOO" Marduk bellows as he rushes at Abigail, throwing back a great, heavy fist. Thundering in, the brawler unleashes the full force as he -pounds- a massive fist aiming straight for Abigail's head- well he can't actually reach the head. He just aims to pound the chest with all he can muster, unleashing the full force of Vale Tudo in staggering rampages.

"CHOO CHOO!"

[ABIGAIL]
The shockwave from Abigail's fist slamming into Marduk's palm, ripples out from them both like some sort of concussive bomb just went off. Cars rattle, the ground shakes and J continues putting on various forms of protections as bits of the ceiling crack and threaten to fall in.

Now normally, someone would be sent flying the full distance of the Bay Area from a punch like that but Marduk is still there, unbelievably so...and he's talking! Now threatening him and making..train noises! Inconceivable!!!

Abigail's body seems to swell even larger, a thunderous flex rippling its way through his body and his mountainous figure looming larger and larger, piling muscle ontop of muscle as Marduk's fist comes hurtling for his chest. "DON'T MOCK MY NAME." he intones, his voice bellowing like the bleating of a dozen semi truck horns all at once. He actually leans forward -into the punch, redirecting the momentum of his original attack to surge him ahead with surprising speed. Marduk's fist lands with another shockwave that actually tips some cars over and craters the ground around both giants...but he then finds Abigail's obscenely muscled arm curling around him, literally enveloping his body and lifting him off the ground. His other arm comes in, massive fist hurtling for Marduk's face only to stop at the last second..and then.. he literally simply finger flicks him while letting his other arm release him at the same time. A finger flick..that hits like a speeding truck and is capable of knocking walls over. It's a mere hint of just how strong this beast is as the force of the impact is capable of sending even Marduk rag dolling backwards towards an as of yet unassaulted row of cars. "BOOOOM!"

[MARDUK]
"HOOOAGH"

That is what Marduk musters as the train is taken off it's track. The full RAGE drowns out his rage as Marduk is not only is intercepted by Abigail's massive arm, but ultimately -flicked- away, sent flying away just like one of those cars. Smashing into a car, he hits the ground hard, only just rising up on his knees.

"Oh my god, you just flicked me."

He wipes his head, and sees -blood.- Marduk registers that he was in trouble. Standing back up, Marduk tries to calm the man down. "Well excuse me! It's not my fault you have a big, dumb, girl's name! If anything, you should thank me for pointing it out to you! Now you can get a better nickname!"And Marduk snaps his fingers.

"Like Abi, with an I!"

Marduk then looks away, tapping his head. "Now I gotta use my noodle, you know? Cause you're bigger, and stronger than me!" He mimes out a grab. "Maybe, if I throw you around, you might not like that! Yeah! By using my grappling technique, instead of my punching technique, that means that you will fall on the ground, because you're so damn BIG." He turns around... and did Abigail get closer? It must be an illusion.

And Marduk thunders in.

Lunging in, Marduk goes straight for the takedown. Charging in, he attempts to go for Abigail's legs. Should he manage to get in? He would use all his power to rip Abigail right off his feet by the knees, and then -slam- him on his back. It would be the perfect position to mount and pound, but... Marduk wasn't just there yet.

And he had to get in, first.

[ABIGAIL]
"It DOES end with an I!!" insists Abigail who has indeed been thundering forward after Marduk, each foot step shaking the entire premise, bouncing cars up and down wildly and setting off seismic disturbance readings possibly across the local area. "Abi..with an I!!!"

As Marduk comes charging in, Abigail leans forward, bracing his immense body and with each of his sequioa like legs flexing thunderously as if rooting him to the ground. The result is Marduk's whole body slamming into the legs, wrapping is arms around them as best he can, Abigail teetering backwards but then rocketing forward to fight the force of the tackle and remain rooted like the proverbial immovable force. The ground craters around them both as the force gets redirected around them, sending a whirlwind of debris and cars tossing in every direction like a tornado just kicked off here.

"Don't move!!" roars Abigail, reaching down with a single arm to try and grab for Marduk around his waist. Now Marduk himself is pretty titanic but Abigail's hand still seems to impossibly engulf him enough that the Aussie titan finds himself being hauled up..and if the grip is successful or not shaken off..literally tossed sky high, once more rag doll like, one full building story, then another and possibly going on a third. And what goes up must come down towards Abigails waiting body as he twists backwards for extra momentum..and then brings his huge palm around to try and slam Marduk out of the air and send him sailing the distance once again, "BIG. SMASH!!!"

Assuming it lands at all of course.

[MARDUK]
"YEAH! ABI WITH AN I!"

Marduk roars back. "THAT'S A GREAT NICKNAME! IT'S KIND OF COOL! LIKE ABE. BUT WITH AN I!" Marduk loses his balance, as both crater down. It was like trying to grab a toddler. A toddler that made Andre the Giant look like Danny Devito. As Marduk slowly recovers, he pounds his chest. "GOOD JOB." He roars. Already, though, Abigail was over him. Marduk thinks. He thinks hard. There had to be a clever way to handle it. He ponders, and ponders. And finally, he figures out the genius move to make.

And Marduk doesn't move. Well, he starts moving when the titan seizes him. Marduk didn't even understand. He was- he was being treated like a little girl? Marduk couldn't believe that he was getting man-handled. As he tries to steady himself in midair, he starts descending, accelerating, right back at Abigail.

Oh, it lands.

But he doesn't move.

"YOU CALL THAT A BIG SMASH, ABI WITH AN I!?" Marduk roars, as he suddenly -reaches- to grab Abigail by his head before he is launched away. Marduk wasn't used to being the little guy in a match. But once he comes down, he wasn't gonna let go. He was gonna wrap his hands around that little noggin, and pull Abigail's hair. And if he did get that nab? That little nab? He would bring ihs whole body around in the full force.

To -smash- his knee into Abigal's head so hard, that it would send -both- to the ground.

[ABIGAIL]
"ARROOOOO!" roars Abigail as the knee slams into his face with enough force to dent the side of a tank, bank vault, possibly even more. His colossal body rocks backwards, blood called forth from his mashed in nose and his entire visage swallowed from sight by Marduk's gigantic leg which bears its full weight down upon him even as his head is pulled into the explosive attack. He topples backwards, finally rewarding Marduk with a fall and toppling over backwards and crumpling to the ground like a falling group of sequoias. Down, down, down and upon an entire row of cars that had been mercifully spared the destruction caused by the two beasts until now. His rock and roll makeup is all smeared to hell as well..and then threre's his flattop cut! His perfectly sculpted canadian leaf! "Noooooo!!!" roars Abigail, realizing that Marduke just messed his hair all up. It's ruined for now.

He lays there for a few seconds on the cars, an Abigail sized imprint spread across all of them until he worsens the damage by rolling backwards off of them and into a crouched position, trying to put some temporary distance between himself and Marduk. It seems the knee knocked some cooldown time back into him..but it's not over as he steadies himself, straightens back up to his full height and then slaps his huge arms, shaking the the area violently with more seismic force just from those impacts. "C'mon!" he roars before slamming his two fists together with a final city block shaking slam resulting from the impact. "I'm gonna crush you like a can!"

[MARDUK]
Marduk was not agile.

But he was more agile than this guy.

As he -unleashes- the mother of all knees into the face of the towering man, Marduk comes collapsing own into the mess of the collapse. The very UN itself was shuddering, at the plight of two titans coming down. Marduk was equally smeared with makeup, all over his leg. Dazed, he rolls to the side, barely recovering. Groaning, he comes into a stand... in time for the earthquivering stomps from the -full- rage of Abigail. The problem was?

"OH?"

"OH?!"
%Marduk had a rage of his own.

"YOU GONNA CRUSH ME LIKE A CAN?" Marduk roars, slapping his chest, his abs, his arms."YOU GONNA SMASH ME? Well I gotta tell you, Abi with an I. I gotta tell you. THIS MAN IS NO CAN! THIS MAN IS NO CAN! The MARDUK EXPRESS in a TRAIN! AND NOBODY IS GONNA RIDE THIS TRAIN WITHOUT A TICKET. AND ABI WITH AN I!?"

"YOU AIN'T GOT NO TICKET!"

Marduk's neck veins bulge, as Marduk pounds his fists together. "I'm GONNA SLAM YOU DOWN. I'M GONNA WRAP YOU UP LIKE A HOT DOG, AND SMOTHER YOU WITH THE WORKS! KETCHUP! MUSTARD! ONIONS! You are gonna be a HOT DOG! And you know what I am gonna do Abi with an I? You know what I'm gonna do with that hot dog?" Marduk sticks a finger in his mouth, and mimes eating it.

"I"M GONNA EAT THAT HOT DOG"

"WITH RELISH"

And he pumps his arm in the air, pulling an imaginary cord.

"CHOO CHOO!"

"CHOO CHOO!"

Marduk           1/-----==/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2          Abigail


[ABIGAIL]
Abigail just sort of stands there and stares..stares wide eyed and in dumbfounded shock as Marduk begins his counter rant. His dark eyes dart back and forth across Marduk's form as the aussie slams his fists into his own body and carries on and on and on. Abigail's mouth drops open slightly. His mind a whirl of confusion. There's begrudging respect for this other titan but also fury and frustration. He also doesn't like this train allegory one bit. Trains are bigger then monster trucks. He can't be a train! Abigail should be a train! But 'vrooms' are coolers. What a connundrum!!

Finally he can't take it anymore and as Marduk finishes, Abigail roars, "WHAT DOES THAT ALL EVEN MEAN???" He takes an earth cratering step forward, lifts both of his huge arms and then slams them down towards the ground in a classic ground pound sort of gesture. A gesture that causes rows upon rows of cars and possibly Marduk himself to go hurtling into the air as the shockwave ripples out from the goliath out into the streets where spectators themselves are sent rebounding into the air from the force of the thunderous double fisted slam.

Airborn and possibly stunned, Marduk would find Abigail surging up closer to him, faster then he had any right to do, both of his huge hands reaching for him to grasp, slam him earthwards and then lift him straight upwards into a convenient overhead obstruction where he slams Marduk into and through it, raining concrete down and getting the other brute stuck and dangling overhead. Where they actually fighting somewhere with a ceiling or outside..? Who knows! There's something there now!

Abigail's huge fists become a blur, each strike hurtling at Marduk's body as he swings there like a punching bag. "ORORORORORO!" He thunders, grinning like a madman as each blow exponentially increases in strength until the final one comes hurtling around, to dislodge Marduk from is prison and send him sailing. Abigail's end target the full length of the parking lot.

[MARDUK]
The exchange of blows was only escalating.

As Marduk's screaming fit comes into a close, Abigail gives an incredible rebuttal, leaving Marduk only to "CHOO CHOO" in the face of pure wit. Truly, trains were bigger than monster trucks. And yet, Marduk identified with a train, not a monster truck. It was offensive.

But so was getting uppercut.

Marduk finds himself slammed right up into an overhanging, head first. Mind reeling, he suddenly finds himself a punching bag as blow after blow comes. And yet, in the face of the assault? He only screams "CHOO CHOO." Despite the broken ribs.. and spleen... and kidneys... and pelvic, when the final blow comes, to knock him all the way across?

Marduk.

Does not.

Yield.

"WHAT DOES IT MEAN?" Marduk bellows as he -refuses- to get knocked away. Dropping down -hard- he breaks into a roll. His feet dig hard into the asphalt, tearing up flesh as well as concrete as he suddenly -bolts- into a full charge. Roaring, he goes for the knees again. This time, it wasn't playtime. He would lift Abigail -right- into the overhanging, and then, -super slam- him hard on his own back? And should he get him that far?

He would begin to explain.

And Marduk mounts on Abigail's chest.

Mounted high up, he wasn't quite comfortable. But as he sits on Abigail, he begins to -punch- the man in the face. Left, right, left, right. A brutal assault, while he SCREAMS at the titan. "So what it MEANS is that I am gonna make you into MEAT! Like a HOT DOG! And like, Hot Dogs should have toppings, right?"

And Marduk grabs Abigail by his tiny head.

"KETCHUP! MUSTARD!" Marduk slams Abigail's head into the concrete, smashing the back of it again and again. "AND I FORGOT RELISH, BUT I REMEMBERED IT! AND ONIONS! AND-" Marduk twists the neck hard, but -stops-. He pauses, as his stomach rumbles hard. "I'm hungry, Abi with an I." Marduk states, rolling off his chest.

"Is there a place to grab a hot dog around here?"

[ABIGAIL]
It's a telling thing about these monsters when the concrete and the reinforced stone is actually softer then their skulls. As Marduk pounds away, Abigail's huge body just sort of jerks violently and his head is slammed further and further into the crumbling stone as an Abi sized imprint deepens and deepens at the epic center of the widening crater. Cracks chasm through the parking lot as the force of Marduk's blows continue to increase and Abigail gets buried more and more and more until finally Marduk stops.

For a few seconds, Abigail simply lays there, silent. And he lifts a huge arm up, cranking it up like some monolithic construction crane, and then points, without looking even, to Marduk's left where a single hot dog vendor is. The person manning it, staring wide eyed at the devastation caused by the two titans and somehow one of the only things upright in a scene that includes bursted fire hydrants and cars embedded in the second and third story windows of nearby offices just from the ancillary shockwaves caused by these two brutes.

Abigail's other arm then launches out and up, lunging for the torso of the seated Marduk with a blur of movement, followed by his other fist coming around and then his other fist coming around again as the behemoth unleashes one more flurry of attacks. His fists rapid firing like a machine gun, even from the prone position, and the area violently shaking from the effort and a final upper cut seeking to send Marduk flying back towards that self same hotdog stand.

[MARDUK]
It was a clash of the titans.

Marduk looks down, as the arm comes up. Turning over to the cart, he nods happily. "Why thank you Abi with an I! I appreciate you pointing out where the hot dogs are-" And he is cut off when out of nowhere, the -mother- of all sucker punches comes out, taking Marduk hard in the jaw. He barely handles it, but in this case, ignorance is bliss. Focused on the hot dogs, he just stares at them as he descends, -smashing- though the vendor, and exploding the cart.

Suddenly Hot Dogs.

Marduk slowly rises up, as it rains delicious sausages all around. Marduk has hot dogs in his mouth, in his ears, in his trunks. And instinctively, Marduk grabs the hot dogs by the fistfuls, and stuffs him in his face. He doesn't have time to think about how much his bones were probably bone jelly right now. He had hot dogs, and crippling injuries. Slurping the hot dogs down, he thunders back to Abigail. It was gonna be a long charge, but Abigail gave him time.

"MMMPH." Marduk mutters aloud, as he swallows the hot dogs. "DAMN THAT'S GOOD." Marduk reaches up, and he pulls the hot dog from his ear, and stuffs it in his mouth. "MMMPH MMPH MPHM MPH" He roars as he spits out pieces of hot dog. Closing back on Abigail, he goes to make sure he -doesn't- enjoy getting all the way up. Pouncing with the speed of a true brawler, Marduk goes for the legs; this time, he would wrap HIS legs around Abigail's legs, and go for the coup de grace: he would -wrench- the leg from it's socket.

Lets see he stand up from that.

COMBATSYS: Abigail fails to interrupt Knee Bar from Marduk with Bay Area Sunrise.

[ABIGAIL]
Like some Kaiju emerging from Metro City Bay, Abigail is already lurching to his feet. Is bruised and battered face leering with a wicked grin as rubble rains down off of his enormous body. "ENOUGH WITH THE TRAINS!" he bellows at the charging Marduk. "..Everyone knows Monster Trucks are better. I'm gonna take a train engine..and...put it into a TRUCK for MORE HORSEPOWER!!"

He thunders forward, charging at Marduk even as Marduk charges his way. His huge arms lunge down to try and grab the diving Aussie but he's just one step to slow. He misses and his huge arms go grasping over thin air as Marduk manages to get both of his legs around one of Abigail's colossal limbs. A feat unto itself and with the wrenching motion that follows, Abigail roars out and goes toppling over, falling down, down, down, until his full weight ends up crushing into the ground onto his skull.

The final earthquake from him that ripples out is several magnitudes greater then previous ones as this one is unrestrained in all ways with the giant's full force slamming into the earth. A plume of dust and debris mushroom clouds up over both of the titans, briefly obscuring them and raining concrete back down as observers rapidly clear back the distance of another city block.

J, just peers through goggles at the carnage and then whistles, "Looks like he finally got the chief to take a nap!"

[MARDUK]
That was it.

The brawler goes for the finish, as the wrestler rolls off, the final earthquake coming. Marduk, hot dogs falling out of his shorts, throws his arms into the air and bellows."YEAH! YEAH! YE- oh god my body." He groans, gripping his chest. Staggering side to side, he tries to get his footing. And he does, just barely. Oh, he felt awful. Marduk looks around, the broken cars all around. The debris. The disastors. ANd Marduk considers. He looks at the wrecked remains of his black Hummer. ANd he realizes what he needs to do.

Marduk begins to grab Abigail's foot.

Grunting, he tries to drag him along, pulling him by his foot. "Wake up, Abi with an I!" Marduk growls. "I told you it was a rental! I gotta get that fixed. Marduk bellows, as he struggles to pull Abigail along. "I gotta get my car to the shop, dammit!"

"Where the hell is Abigail's Scrap Metal!?"

COMBATSYS: Marduk takes no action.

[ABIGAIL]
Oh this is just great. Well business is business. J will get beat up if he doesn't send some business to the garage. J will get beat up for the business being Marduk and a Hummer. No way around it.

"Bay area." he yells out of the window of the truck. "I'll send a tow for it..and for the chief."

For his part, Abigail just lays there, groaning in a crater shaped around his body and then muttering, "That was a dead heat."
