A Prank Gone Wrong Ch. 1 A Prank Gone Wrong
Max Dillon had the perfect prank.
Max, also known as Electro, was a prankster at heart. He loved playing tricks and pranks on people, and today was April Fool's Day; the perfect day to pull one. And he had the most excellent idea
Max whistled as he walked down the bustling Manhattan street. Now he just had to find a suitable candidate for his prank.
And who should Electro see dart into an alleyway at that moment than Doctor Octopus.
Aha, he thought. Perfect. The scientist had a short temper, so Max would have to make a break for it once he had pranked him; but it would so be worth it.
Electro caught up with his fellow criminal, walking up behind him. "Heya, Doc! How are you doing?" he asked jovially.
Doc Ock whipped around, recognizing Electro's voice. "I am fine, thank you," he said gruffly. Electro held out a hand for him to shake. After hesitating for a moment, Doc Ock took it, casting his suspicions aside. D
Let's Play Ball-- Pre-GameChapter Four: Pre-Game
The day of the baseball game had finally arrived. The sun was shining; there was not a cloud in sight. It was a perfect day for the ultimate showdown.
Most of the heroes were arriving to the stadium via the X-Jet. Nick Fury stood among them, relaying last-minute changes and instructions.
"Alright, then. The Silver Surfer can't make it, so Cap, would you mind being umpire?"
"It would be an honor, sir." Captain America was a fair and just hero, so he would be wholly accepted by both sides.
Fury continued. "Okay, that means we'll need a new right fielder. Someone tell Sue Richards that she'll be needed for the starting lineup. Elektra, you'll be a new bench player. Along with you, Luke Cage."
"Is one of the other players unavailable, Colonel?" Luke asked.
The head of S.H.I.E.L.D. nodded. "Dr. Strange said he had changed his mind and he'd rather watch than actually play. Is everyone set? Well, that's good, then. We're almost at the stadium."
Spider-Man picked up a ba

Chapter TwoThe Tryouts, Part One
It was a bright and sunny spring day in Salem Center. Professor Charles Xavier wheeled himself down to the baseball diamond, where most of his fellow X-Men and other superheroes were gathering.
Professor Xavier had been asked by Colonel Fury from S.H.I.E.L.D if the superheroes could use the baseball field at his exclusive school for mutants. It's small, Fury had said, but it's suitable.
For tryouts, Professor X later learned.
Tryouts so they could play baseball against the super villains.
Xavier sighed as he reached one of the dugouts. "Baseball?" he had asked incredulously when Bobby Drake had told him."Yeah," Bobby had answered enthusiastically. "It'll be fun."
At first, he had though that his X-Men were under psionic control somehow. But after checking thoroughly, Xavier found that they were all of sound mind. The leader of the X-Men couldn't phantom why they wanted to do something so, so

Author's Note: This is a parody on most of the Marvel superheroes and super villains. I mean, it probably would never happen, but there has been much fun writing it.
Anyway, this was collaborated with the user doodlergirl.
Chapter 1Ideas and Meetings
It was another boring, but busy day at the offices of S.H.I.E.L.D. That is, until Nick Fury received the videotape. It came in a package that was marked URGENT.
This better be something important, Colonel Fury thought, sticking the tape in the VCR. I'm extremely busy today.
Doctor Doom popped up on the screen. "Nick Fury," the recorded image said.
"Doom," Fury snarled, even though he knew that the super villain wasn't live. "What do you want this time?"
Suprisingly, the self-proclaimed ruler of Latveria seemed quite relaxed. "I have sent you this message to inquire whether you and the other so-called "heroes" would wish to match wits with us in a game of tenacity, agility, and wit.
"I am inviting you to play bas

Author's Note: Chapter 7in which Evelyn gets answers and Otto has a heart-to-heart talk with Spider-Man (Well, kind of...) Enjoy !
The infamous villain known throughout Manhattan (and the whole country, for that matter) as Doctor Octopus stared at his niece across the kitchen table. "So. Your questions," he said bluntly. "Go ahead and ask me."
"I can ask you anything?" Evelyn asked nervously.
"Are we even related?"
As a reply, he grabbed her wrist with his hand, very nearly hurting her as he gripped her tightly. Startled, she attempted to break free, but he held her fast. He's stronger than he looks, she thought nervously.
"Look at me, Evelyn," he growled. "Do you really think I would have fought for full custody of you if you weren't related to me? Do you really think I would have gone through all of that trouble?"
"Uh, I don't know; Iuh" she stammered.
He pulled her close to her, so that her face w

Data sighed, drumming his fingers on the desk. It was a human gesture he had picked up from his best friend, Geordi LaForge.
Next to Data on the desk were several large piles of books that Commander Riker had lent him. 101 Funny Jokes, one read. Dirty Humor, another read. Some of the other titles included Jokes to Make a Vulcan Laugh, Knock-Knock Jokes, and The Greatest Riddles of the Centuries. Data just didn't get it. The riddles were interesting, to be sure. But Data did not understand any of the jokes. Why a person's rear end could be funny was beyond him. Humans. Data just did not understand them. He petted his cat, Spot. "What should I do now?" he asked it. The cat purred, rubbing against him.
Data decided to go to the Holodeck. As it was 300 hours, there were very few p

Just a simple short story about a couple of my favorite characters; a break from all of the other stories I am writing. Just read and enjoy, my friends. Read and enjoy.
The one-armed scientist was hard at work; research papers all around him. He scribbled frantically on some of these papers, his head bent in concentration.
He was so engrossed in his work that he barely noticed the knock at the door, and when he did, he ignored it. He was very busy right now. He would let Martha get it.
But when the knocking sound came again, much louder this time, he grudgingly stood up. As he did so, some of the papers fell off of his desk, fluttering to the floor.
A little irritated at whomever had disturbed him, he yanked open the door and
And stared, dumbfounded, at the man at the door. What the hell ?
He composed himself and greeted the man. "Oh, hello! It's nice to see you!" he said, faking the enthusiasm in his voice.
"You seem surprised to see me, Curt,

Five Months Later
I sat at the desk in my bedroom, trying hard to make sense of the physics homework in front of me. I re-read the problem, making sure I had copied it down right.
"If a photon has 3.26x10 to the -19 joules of energy, then calculate the length of the photon. Show all of your work."
I crossed out what I thought was the wrong answer for the third time. This was getting ridiculous. I was doing something wrong, but I didn't know what it was.
I threw my pencil down on the desk. I really needed to go for a walk and get some fresh air before I attempted to tackle this homework again.
After telling my mom I was going for a quick walk (she told me not to wander too far), I left the apartment and walked down the sidewalks of downtown Manhattan. Though the sidewalks and streets were busy as always, nothing eventful really happened except I calmed down a little and relaxed. Walking, especially with music in my ears, always manages
