The attack on PalmyraEdit
Approximately thirty years after the duel in the MBH, the S.M.S.B. has disappeared into Asia. Both the Knights of Meyer and the Team of Terror hope to find him, as well as the Map of Light. If the device was destroyed, it could break the very fabric of the light side.
Jason, Sue, and Britney Grover go to Palmyra to stay with their uncle, Eegan, who has obtained the widely coveted device. During the meeting, Knights of Meyer under the command of the Dark Flame and Captain Photon attack the village. Eegan attempts to flee in his skyfighter, but a pair of troopers disable the engines with their guns. With no alternative, Eegan opens fire on the Knights. The Dark Flame emerges and spins a tornado, destroying the city. In the meantime, Jason gives the device to Britney and told her and Sue to hide; their house somehow survived the tornado. Jason remains behind because the others are still searching for him.
After securing the area, the stragglers to the tornado are herded into the town square. Eegan takes a shot at the Dark Flame from cover, but the Dark Flame casually stops the bullet in midair and crushes it with his powers. Eegan is captured and brought before the Dark Flame, who demands to know where the light-side device is. Eegan responds that he knows who the Dark Flame used to be, and chides the Dark Flame that he cannot escape his real identity. Growing impatient, the Dark Flame kills Eegan by striking him down with his sword.
Just then, the Knights of Meyer show up with Jason in tow and the Dark Flame decides to interrogate him further back on their ship. Before leaving, Photon asks what to do with the survivors, and the Dark Flame orders them all slaughtered. As the massacre plays out behind him, the Dark Flame leaves.
Encountering Rocken RoleEdit
Near the end of the Asian Revolution, Master Intelligence and the S.M.S.B. were trapped in a landslide. When Master Intelligence emerges from it, he immediately makes sure everyone is all right. To his relief, everyone has survived. Just then, Rocken Role arrives, much to his surprise. After a brief talk, Role reveals that his assistant, Wesley Carrier, was captured by Mella Montgomery, and likely killed. Role then leaves to finish his mission.
Return to the DefilementEdit
- "The Team of Terror will not be intimidated by you!"
- ―Jason Grover to the Dark Flame[src]
Returning to the Defilement in the meantime, KM-15 is overwhelmed with emotions because of the massacre of the townspeople. Knowing he would be punished and re-evaluated for not firing on the townspeople, and with his faith in the Knights of Meyer severely shaken, he decides to desert. Meanwhile, after failed attempts of torturing Jason for vital information about the Map of Light, the Dark Flame uses his mind probing power to pry the information from Jason's mind. The Dark Flame learns that the Map is located with Sue and Britney Grover, and informs Captain Photon of the new information.
Mission to AsiaEdit
Eventually, Jason Grover returns home after he is rescued by KM-15 from the Dark Flame. Knowing they need to return the Map of Light to Master Intelligence, Jason, along with Sue and Britney, sneak through the airport and hide behind a service desk. Here, KM-15 says he will have to leave them. Jason asks why KM-15 would stay in New York City where he would be unveiled and surely killed, instead of fleeing to Asia with them. In response, KM-15 says the Dark Flame will undoubtedly send a group of Knights to track him, and he would rather die than see the deaths of more innocent people the Knights of Meyer would surely tear down while searching for him. Jason accepts this, and with his sisters, he proceeds to stow away aboard an airplane. They leave without a trace.
Capture in ChinaEdit
Back in China, Master Intelligence has a vision of KM-15 being tortured and killed by the Dark Flame for his involvement in Jason's liberation. Realizing that Mella Montegomery is the head of a vast criminal empire in China, the S.M.S.B. allows themselves to be captured so they can reach their enemy's quarters. The same enemy uses the effect of Pitial Defilatelum to see if Master Intelligence's sword has been recovered. Eventually, the others manage to escape capture thanks to George Thames, who is a blacksmith. Unfortunately, George dies shortly after teleporting everyone away to North Korea.
Shortly afterwards, Britney, Jason, and Sue show up and are able to recover the device, rendering it out of the Dark Flame's reach.
Attack on the MBHEdit
In April of 2180, the Dark Flame discovered the plans for the MBH. Using his powers to surpass security, he broke in to steal the plans. At this moment, Master Intelligence knew that the duel had to be fought. The Dark Flame entered a chamber, but the S.M.S.B. was waiting. Lindsay fired at the Dark Flame with a nearby gun, but the Dark Flame knocked her out by telekinetically hurling her against a wall, temporarily knocking her out. Sebiscuits, horrified, rushed over, but failed to wake her. As such, Sebiscuits angrily attacks the Dark Flame in a sword duel, but the Dark Flame overpowers Sebiscuits, jabbing him with his elbow and slashing him across the back to incapacitate him. Just then, Lindsay awakens from her stupor and proceeds to attack the criminal. The Dark Flame initially held the advantage, using his rage to an advantage. Lindsay spent part of the duel in retreat, defending herself against the Dark Flame’s advances. The two locked sabers and the villain taunted her about her hair. This backfired, however, as Lindsay was unconcerned about her appearance and the taunt only served to reassure her of her own power: she began to draw on her powers to hone her attacks, and moved onto the offensive, delivering powerful, heavy attacks against her enemy. However, the Dark Flame drew upon his own powers and regained the offensive, and the tide of the duel remained in his favor. Ultimately the Dark Flame was able to overpower Lindsay and deal her a severe wound to her face while severing her sword into two. Lindsay has taken too many wounds to continue standing, but she still struggles in vain to rise.
Master Intelligence intervenes and engages the villain at close quarters. The Dark Flame immediately fired a death beam, which Master Intelligence blocks before igniting his sword. The resulting three-hour long battle, fought with both swords and superpowers, was one of the most well known duels in the world. At one point, Lindsay Kellerman got too close to the duel, necessitating that Master Intelligence telekinetically repel her away whilst deflecting a torrent of lightning. The duel also proved to be one of Master Intelligence’s most famous moments, with him losing his life soon after being disarmed. According to Colby Doge, eye-witnesses proclaimed that it was the greatest duel of all time.
The fight ended in a draw when both of them disarmed each other at the same time, by means of a telekinetic blast fired at the same time as a death beam. Upon being disarmed, Master Intelligence remembered what he and the Dark Flame were fighting for and attempted to talk his former friend out of his destruction. After a brief moment of emotional struggle, the Dark Flame activated the weapon and brought it down on Lindsay. However, Intelligence leaped in front of Lindsay and the sword passed through his chest instead. As Lindsay and Sebiscuits watched in horror, the Dark Flame slammed Intelligence’s corpse through the window for a ten-story fall. With that, Master Intelligence died at the age of 160.
Lindsay angrily called the Dark Flame a monster for murdering his own master and only friend. She and Sebiscuits engaged the Dark Flame in combat, attacking relentlessly. The Dark Flame met their attacks with his own, and both sides seemed to be evenly matched. When the Dark Flame backed away for a moment, Lindsay and Sebiscuits hurled their swords at him. The villain deflected both of the blades, which were caught by Sebiscuits. After a brief flurry of swordplay, Sebiscuits tossed Lindsay her sword and they attacked again. However, Sebiscuits, in an attempt to cut the Dark Flame's handle in two, accidentally missed the villain and sliced through Lindsay's handle instead. Lindsay was then blasted into the doorway leading into the chamber. Sebiscuits furiously rounded on the Dark Flame. He attacked him with rage and hatred, raining down fast, heavy power attacks against his opponent. The Dark Flame easily countered his strikes, but eventually began to struggle. Attempting to rally, Sebiscuits sidestepped his enemy before pulling him into a bladelock. The antagonist broke the contact and attacked again. With his strength and aggressive sword technique, Sebiscuits finally overpowered Dark Flame’s defenses and slammed his own sword against his neck. The antagonist fell back and died. In an act of vengeance, Sebiscuits telekinetically thrusted the Dark Flame through a window.
The battle and Master Intelligence’s death had a great impact on the world.
After his death, Lindsay became the new leader of the S.M.S.B., as she had been promised over a century before.
Death of Lindsay KellermanEdit
After Master Intelligence died, Lindsay assumed control of the S.M.S.B. By now, only Sebiscuits, Telekinibabe, and Baby Strength were left. She was widely considered “just as good a leader as Master Intelligence.” In 2218, and died of old age. Lindsay had grown sick and weak in old age, and knew her death was imminent. She informed Sebiscuits there was little he could learn from her. She also told Sebiscuits, Telekinibabe, and Baby Strength that they should pass on what they had learned, as the light side powered them all, as it had Master Intelligence. She also revealed the origins of Intelligence’s power. With her final breaths, Lindsay struggled to tell Sebiscuits her final words: “Sebiscuits. You are now our leader.”
Lindsay then died and was buried soon after. Soon after. Lindsay told a nervous Sebiscuits that she and Master Intelligence would always be with him, if not physically.
Based on its content it is likely that The X-Adults: Endgame 2 will be rated PG-13 when it is released, as its predecessor was.
