Lunchtime lairs Marvel FASERIP: Legion of Liverpool Legends 4# Kraken Kerfuffle

The Legion’s downtime was interrupted by a small tsunami that washed over the Mersey, bringing with it a large mass that made its way up the river. The Legion watched the carnage from the Triad as the river washed away cars and spun a container ship crashing in to a large crane. The crane buckled. Atop it, a protester dressed as Batman clings on for dear life.

Our heroes spring in to action – Danger Dan leaps from the window and glides towards the crane whilst Boss Banana and Boreas jump in a helicopter. They fly to the crane and can see dock workers struggling underwater. Danger Dan brings ‘Batman’ in to the helicopter and Boreas jumps with an inflatable dingy towards the water. He belly flops the dingy, taking a bit of damage. Boss Banana leaps to the base of the crane to tip it towards the water but lands badly.

Suddenly, a large tentacle springs from the wave and swipes at the helicopter – just clipping it.

Boss Banana tries to swing the collapsing crane towards the water and succeeds. But the Kraken darts away, making a break towards the Pier Head. The Legion regroups aboard the helicopter and pursues.

Danger Dan’s hologram of a Ms. Kraken only enrages the lonely monster.

Boss Banana and Boreas jump out at Brunswick Dock, using a light hologram of the helicopter (courtesy of Danger Dan) to hide their approach. Boreas summons a pack of dogs to bark at the Kraken and Boss Banana tips some turbines in to the river, reversing the electrical current from the national grid to try and electrocute the Kraken – with moderate success.

Danger Dan glides out of the helicopter, leaving it to crash in to the Kraken’s eye – but forgetting that the ‘Batman’ protestor was still inside! The helicopter explodes against the Kraken, drawing blood and killing Kamikaze Batman.

A tentacle attack takes a chunk out of Boss Banana and Boreas. Meanwhile, Danger Dan glides in to the Kraken’s eye, punching it and holding on as it sprays ink in defence. Boss Banana is hit with some electrical feedback, frying some circuits after the Kraken throws a spare wind turbine at him. A curled tentacle slams Boreas, but he uses the opening to command his pack of dogs to run up the tentacle and bite in to the Kraken’s face.

One last fist from Boss Banana and the Kraken falls limp and lifeless. As the survivors of the attack swim to shore, Boreas gathers his pack and they fashion a dog sled to ride back to Bootle in style.
