Time Lady glanced at the new arrival that had entered after her. She wasn’t quite sure what to make of him. Friend or Foe? Either way, her intelligent three-year old Gallifreyan mind had been thinking, analysing the situation. She could almost physically see Deathstroke starting to draw up strategies. Unlike Cyber Punk she had not looked at any files, nor did she know very much about him prior to this encounter, but already she had gathered quite a bit of information just by oberservation and intuition. The odds were stacked against them, however together they might stand a slight chance against him. But there was also Mr Freeze to add to her calculations. Even if they could fight off Deathstroke, could they do it before Freeze had got what he wanted, or could they fight them both simultaneously? This was something she much doubted.
However she also knew that she could do something even Deathstroke wouldn’t have been able put in to his calculations, and certainly not Mr Freeze. That was the advantage of being completely unknown. You had the element of surprise. And none of them knew that she had one of the best cheat-code gadgets of the universe hidden in her pocket. And of course added to that, she had time on her side, quite literally.
So the real question she had to ask herself was, could these guys handle Deathstroke on their own while she made things as difficult for Freeze as possible? And would it work?
This is one hell of a risk…and it may amount to nothing, but….if I’m successful, then I’ll have put a real spanner in the works. And I can’t just do nothing about Freeze when I know potentially I can upset his plan in a way no one would expect…not unless they know me of course, which they don’t, So… Jenny had made her decision, all in just a few brief seconds.
The Time Lady smiled, and then giving a quick subtle wink to Cyber Punk, who was the nearest to her, she vanished.
Of course, she hadn’t actually vanished. She had stopped time, and was now in pursuit of Mr Freeze and the vaults. She reached into her pocket and pulled out her pen that she had been writing with earlier. Clicking a small switch on its side, the device extended, revealing it to be a lot more than just a pen, but an advanced alien device. Time still frozen around her, she made her way calmly to the vault Mr Freeze was headed for. She could do this. She just needed to not panic and trust herself. She would have to be quick. Aiming her sonic device at the entrance to the vault, she switched it the required setting, and took a deep breath. Then she let Time unfreeze, and with a glow of light and a loud obscure ‘buzzzzt’, Jenny sealed the vault’s locks, melting and re-shaping the internal mechanisms and making it impossible to open. Quick as lightening she then proceed to work her way along the whole entrance, sealing it off in the same manner so that there was no leverage, no weak points. She searched her surroundings for any further flaws or means of opening the vault, making sure everything was sealed off, sonic-locked and secure. Maybe he would find a way around it, but even if he did, she had certainly bought them some time. The question was, how much? She just hoped this risk would pay off…and that the other heroes were doing ok without her.
