AP Productions: Formerly Known as Brain Boy #3

Stratton Air National Guard Base in Scotia, New York was used mostly for scientific research, particularly the research of the North and South Poles. It was also here that Ryan Bennings developed the Dragonfly armor. Due to the surge in superhuman threats, particularly around the New York area, the National Guard saw fit to develop an armored flight harness that would be used to protect … Continue reading AP Productions: Formerly Known as Brain Boy #3

Getting the Dragon out of the sewage tunnel was trickier than getting the Knight-cycle out. Michael performed a few maintenance checks for his father over the years but he hadn’t flown the craft since he was in high school. Once he got it through the tunnel with a few scrapes along the concrete walls, it handled well enough. His father designed the craft but Rex … Continue reading AP Productions: Cavalier #8

AP Productions: Formerly Known as Brain Boy #2

Ryan took a drag from his vape, “I remember the time Cady took me to the Student Dean. He grabbed my arm and marched me across campus like I was going to the principal’s office. Pretty inappropriate, all things considered, but it’s always been hilarious to me and that wouldn’t end up being the worst thing he ever did. At any rate, he barged into … Continue reading AP Productions: Formerly Known as Brain Boy #2

Brain Boy Brain Boy Totally rad-i-cal Brain Boy It’s fight’n crime then pizza time It’s Brain Booooooooy! The drunk frat boys at the bar sang the song with the passion and the sincerity of an operatic choir but far more obnoxiously and very-much off key. Ryan Bennings was unamused and didn’t feel like being polite enough to even give a thankful smile but at the … Continue reading AP Productions: Formerly Known as Brain Boy #1

Michael and Arthur made their way through the tunnel, leaving behind the Dragon docked in the small hangar. Minutes later, Springheel-Jack emerged from under the craft. Typically, Arthur would often do a maintenance check on the craft after landing but since the mission was a minor one and they were returning later than expected, he opted not to check that night. As for Jack, he … Continue reading AP Productions: Cavalier #6

1988 … The convention hall was silent, save for a few people shifting in their seats and a single, awkward cough. Many people in the audience scoffed at the crackpot ideas they just spent forty five minutes hearing while others were deeply fascinated for a variety of reasons. Most, however, were utterly horrified. Having just made their final points, the three men stood on stage … Continue reading AP Productions: Badges #5

AP Productions: Winghaven #6

Early that afternoon, they arrived at a cul-de-sac in front of a two-story home that looked almost identical to all the homes around it.  It was quiet and as normal as Winghaven could get. Alysa got out, still angry about her defeat earlier that morning. Creed picked up on it, “Your mom taught you the mystic arts,” he began sympathetically, “Are you sensing anything about … Continue reading AP Productions: Winghaven #6

Alysa finally fell asleep on the cot downstairs after eating a sandwich and the snacks Grace had given her.  It was 5am and Stagger Lee’s was closing; the staff placed chairs on the tables and wiped off the counters as the final patrons exited.  Creed sat at the bar with Cassandra and they downed two final shots of whiskey together.   “How long did Johns and … Continue reading AP Productions: Winghaven #5

Ten Years Ago… Farrell Creed and Ella Saraki walked through the dark woods together, the light of their flashlights falling on the foliage surrounding them.  The owner of the property had seen signs of trespassers on his land and after the police had been unsuccessful in finding anyone in the woods, Creed had been hired to remove them.  The owner suspected teenagers or drug addicts. … Continue reading AP Productions: Winghaven #4

The Chosen: Chapter 4

As the six James Buchanan High School seniors stood just inside the double doors that separated the cafeteria from the school’s entrance hall, Nat found that all she could think about was her younger sister. Suzanne Lyons had gotten up that morning almost an hour before Nat. She used that time to mull over several outfits. Nat remembered thinking she never in her life needed … Continue reading The Chosen: Chapter 4

“Mike, did you steal my suit?,” Arthur Hawkwood growled over the phone. He sat inside the Dragon hovercraft, looking at the two armors against the wall (his father’s and grandfather’s) and the spot where a third was meant to be. “Yup,” Michael turned away from his desk to look at the suit of black armor standing against the wall in his apartment. “You’re looking at … Continue reading AP Productions: Cavalier #4
