The Super Hero Squad Show – Moving On (Ms. Marvel x Spider-Man)
Author's note: For those of you who are wondering about how I'm going to portray Moon Knight's multiple personality disorder, I plan to make it similar to Iceman from Mega Man: Powered Up where he acts like he's talking to someone else.
Also, if any of you haven't watched 'The Amazing Spider-Man' film yet, one of the scenes here is based on a scene in the film, so SPOILER ALERT.
Just thought I make that clear before anyone asks. Now, on with the chapter!
Chapter 2 – Settling in
After Deadpool was put to sleep and placed in his bedroom, Spider-Man, Daredevil and Moon Knight were shown to their rooms and the squad helped them get their things in. Spider-man surveyed his room upon entering it. It was simple enough, a bed with a set of drawers and a lamp on top of it.
A cupboard to put his costumes in (seriously he has so many costumes he could start a fashion show) and a chair with a desk, so if he needed to upgrade his web shooters he would have something to rest on. His room was in between Daredevil's and Moon Knight's with Deadpool's in a more secure place cause you never know what Deadpool's up to in his room.
While Spider-Man unpacked his things he came across something he forgot he had with him – a photograph. Now at first this wouldn't seem that special, but in the picture was a young man from his torso to his head. He had brown hair and hazel eyes wearing a simple T-shirt while hugging a young blond woman next to him, she was wearing a green jacket and had a black hair band.
Spider-Man's expression fell as an unpleasant memory came to him. The young man in the photo was himself, Peter Parker, and the woman next to him was his first love Gwen Stacy. Spider-Man sighed as he clenched the photo against his chest and he quickly put the memory to rest before returning to unpacking his things.
Having finished and having nothing else to do, Spider-Man decided to catch up with Iron Man on what's changed since he had left.
"...and most recently I've discovered that some of Doctor Doom's new recruits have been planning to make their first move today, though I'm not sure exactly what Doom wants' them to steal."
"Maybe there after some of that new shampoo She-Hulk's promoting? Who wouldn't want some if she says its good stuff?"
Iron Man just looked at Spider-Man with a 'not amused' look. Spidey decided to break the silence.
"Well rest assured that it's most likely not the bank cause, well let's face it WHO gets away with robbing it these days?"
"Actually Crimson Dynamo and the Melter did a few months back."
They started listing possible points around the city that the new villains may attack when Moon Knight walked in. "How's it going?"
Iron Man turned to face him "Well we've decided to ask Ms. Marvel if we could put some S.H.I.E.L.D. camera's in certain locations that we think the new villains will attack."
Moon Knight stared at the screen in interest "Are you going to place any in Stark Industries?"
He shook his head as his eyes took a sterner look "Of course not, he owns the place it will already be protected!"
His head shook and his personality changed again "Calm down I was just asking.
And a third time "Well we don't need you to point out the obvious!"
And a fourth time "Alright already sheesh!" Moon Knight turned to Spider-Man and Iron Man who just stared at him in discomfort. "Sorry about him, anyway I was wondering since everyone's in the gym down the corridor they were wondering if you two would like to join in a game of basketball."
Stark looked around nervously before answering "uhhh no thanks I'll uh stay here and continue on setting up those camera's" still not looking very comfortable, Spidey however agreed to take a break and play a game with his friends. Before her followed Moon Knight down the hall Iron Man whispered to him "How did you and Daredevil put up with his personality problem?"
"It's really a minor thing; it's Deadpool you have to be worried about" he answered before jogging off to catch up with MK.
They arrived at the court where the rest of the Super Hero Squad was playing a match with Hawkeye and Reptil. "Alright MK, whose team are we on?"
"Well we'll find out once this lot are done with this current game."
As Falcon scored the last basket, the horn sounded indicating that Falcon, Scarlet Witch and Hulk had beaten Thor, Hawkeye and Wolverine. Hawkeye went and got the ball as he said "Alright, each of us are going to switch teams for the next game."
Reptil, haven't been one anyone's team yet, stood up and asked "Well if any of you want to take a break I can take someone's spot if you want?"
Falcon landed on the ground "If you want, you can take my place on Hawkeye's team."
"Woah, woah, woah. Hang on bird brain I'm not playing with a kid on my team."
"I'm not a kid Hawkeye! I helped save the universe while you were probably off lounging around!"
Hawkeye's smirk stayed put "Okay but don't cry to me if you need your diaper changed."
Reptil gritted his teeth in frustration. Why did Hawkeye still treat him as a rookie? Just because he's had S.H.I.E.L.D. training doesn't make him better than anyone else, he doesn't even have powers for God's sake!
Spider-Man, not happy with Hawkeye's cockiness, spoke up as he left Moon Knight's side "Hey c'mon Hawkeye give him a break, he's just as capable as the rest of us."
"Agreed, Scarlet Spider, young Reptil here has proven himself as brave as thee despite his small size!" Though Reptil found some comfort in Thor's support, he didn't appreciate the height comment.
"Thor your better than that, why agree with a guy who's named after a creepy insect when you could be on the same team as yours truly?" Hawkeye attention returned to Spider-Man when he used a webline to take the ball from him.
"Newsflash pal, Spiders aren't insects, they're arachnids!"
"Doesn't matter what they are, real ones are still more of a threat than you!" Hawkeye advanced towards Spider-Man in the middle of the court. "Seriously with that costume, I'm surprised the city hasn't laughed at you yet!"
"Well maybe it's cause they're too busy snickering at how stupid you look in different shades of purple!" Spider-Man quipped a bit more harshly than he intended.
Now the Squad was starting to get concerned, they all knew that the webhead and the archer haven't always see eye-to-eye with each other and their rivalry can sometimes become more intense than either intended it to.
Scarlet Witch attempted to break up the fight before it got out of hand "Hey guys calm down there's no need to..."
"Alright Robin Hood, you're so good? You and me, one point."
Hawkeye clearly not putting up with Spider-Man's quips walked up to him confident as ever and caught the ball as Spidey tossed it to him. Hawk started to bounce the ball and shuffled his feet as Spidey waited for his first move.
Out of nowhere Deadpool pulled out a megaphone and a referees hat and whistle. "Ladies and Gentlemen, in the red corner is a guy whose costume is uglier than Hulk's yearbook photo, the Spider whose name is commonly spelt wrong – SPIDER-MAN!"
Spider-Man's eyes tensed in annoyance "Why does everyone make fun about my costume?"
"And in the purple corner, an archer who has as many arrows as love interests, a guy who makes purple look even more silly than usual – HAWKEYE!"
Hawkeye's brow rose "This is a basketball court not a wrestling ring." Deadpool chucked a water bottle at Hawkeye's head.
"Let me be an announcer or I'll beat you up so hard the author will have to change the rating of this fanfic!"
Ignoring Deadpool, mostly because no one understood what on Earth he was talking about, Hawk and Webs returned their focus towards each other and Hawkeye started bouncing the ball, slowly approaching Spider-Man. But he couldn't get very far before the webbed wonder snatched the ball out of his hand and backed away.
Hawkeye tried to snatch the ball away while the webhead was bouncing it, but sadly Spider-Man's reflexes proved too much for him as he kept missing the ball. "Okay how about I make it fair?" The masked marvel placed his hand over his eyes and turned around while holding the ball towards him.
However once Hawkeye grabbed the ball, it wouldn't move. Placing two hands on it he tried to yank it off Spidey's hand but it wouldn't budge. "C'mon Hawk I'm letting you take it, so take it." Spider powers were obviously causing the ball to stay on his hand. Hawkeye then stepped back a few spaces, shuffling his feet and trying to remain confident.
"Ya' know what? Who needs strength? I've got speed, just try and get past webhead!"
Spider-Man wasted no time and rushed right past Hawkeye before bouncing the ball up to the ceiling. He then leapt up and grabbed it, heading for the hoop to dunk it in. But he was going too fast and slammed the ball in too hard causing it to snap off its screws and followed Spidey down to the floor.
The hoop hit the floor with a CLANG and Hulk rushed over to see if he could (attempt to) fix it. However all he did was try to balance it on the pole and it took no less than 10 seconds for him to become impatient.
"Grrr HULK MAKE HOOP STAY ON POLE!" Hulk then slammed the hoop onto the pole but the unwanted force caused the pole to crush under Hulks hand and cracked a water pipe in the floor resulting in water coming out of the floor.
Hulk and Spidey stared at the slowly becoming flood as Spidey cringed and asked "So how do guys feel about an indoor pool?"
Ms. Marvel's scowl would have been enough to make Dr. Doom cringe and if she could channel her strength into her rapidly tapping foot she would have brought the Helicarrier down with an ease. Spider-Man looked around the room trying to avoid her glare, but couldn't turn away from his responsibility.
"Well Webs? Is there something you would like to say?"
He knew she was annoyed, but he thought a little humour couldn't hurt. "I'm surprised at how easy it is to break basketball hoops" he stated trying to act impressed. It didn't last long.
"Something along the lines of 'I'm sorry Ms, I'm a red and blue, wisecracking, irresponsible IDIOT!"
"Okay look, technically it was Hulk who broke the pole."
"Yes, but who started getting cocky, broke the hoop and caused the Hulk to cause a water leakage that's slowly turning the court into an indoor sauna?"
"Alright, I'm sorry, I got carried away and I'm willing to make up for it."
"Well that's a first and since you're the one who started the leakage you're going to be the one to fix it!"
"Do I look like a plumber?"
"Well your red and blue like a certain plumber. Now move it or you're going to be sleeping in the air vents!"
"Fine, where's the tool box?"
Ms. Marvel turned her attention away from Spider-Man "Go ask Iron Man, he should know where it is." Spider-Man then left the room muttering "It wouldn't hurt to lighten up a bit."
Ms. Marvel soon arrived in the court to find Spider-Man putting a spanner (or wrench if your American) down. "Well Spider, done yet?"
Spidey turned around to see her walking towards him. "Oh sorry M&M, if I'd known you'd be checking on me I would have gotten you a present!"
Spider-Man picked up a screwdriver "Just need to screw this down and then I'm done, though do you mind if I borrow an S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform?" He then referred to the water and dirt stains the pipes left on his outfit "I need to wash my costume."
Ms. Marvel gave a nod of approval "Okay, I'll open the closet to let you see if there are any your size."
Spidey then placed the tools back in the box "There happy?" Ms. Marvel simply waved it off.
"Now if you want to avoid being our new janitor I suggest..." she didn't see a small bit of water which hadn't dried off completely and slipped on it.
She was expecting to hit the ground but found herself caught in a pair of red and blue arms "Woah careful, we should really get a 'Wet Floor' sign for that."
Before she could comment on why there wasn't such a sign she couldn't help but notice how gentle Spidey was holding her and how comfortable she felt. She hadn't felt like this since Captain Marvel... What was she doing? She's the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D. for God's sake!
So why was she blushing? Is she enjoying his company?
"Hello? Earth to M&M?" Spidey called to her waving his hand. Snapping back to reality, she threw herself up and walked away in a hurry desperate to hide her flustered face.
"T-thank you for fixing that. I-I'll go open the S.H.I.E.L.D. supply room to get you a uniform while you wash your costume!" She made sure he was out of hearing range as she breathed a sigh of relief. She couldn't be developing feelings for him, he was just helping her up that's all! She could never love anyone the same way she loved Captain Marvel.
Or could she? She was just thankful no one was there to see that. Or so she thought.
As Spidey left the court with the tool box, Redwing descended from the ceiling and flew around the Helicarrier to find Falcon. Once he found him he landed on Falcon's shoulder.
"Hey Redwing where have ya' been?"
Redwing then chirped and squawked about Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man's moment as Falcon stared at him at disbelief. "What? Blushing? Are you serious?!?!"
Things were soon about to get interesting...
