Survival of the Sickest
The Sound of Thunder
"Last time on Total Drama Island, we kicked off our big superhero challenge by having our boy Geoff team up with and square off against the original Peacemaker. Geoff stayed true to his pacifistic ways even while being shot at with a plasma rifle, refusing to take a gun from the third Peacemaker Geoff made a dive for a nearby paintball gun and took his rival to the cleaners winning him invincibility. Then it was time for Bridgett to strap on the wetsuit and become Aquagirl. The lil' surfer chick proved she had what it takes and then some, by using the sharks infront of her as stepping-stones. Meanwhile it seems as though someone has broke into my office and gone through my files. I haven't figured out yet who it was, since I don't actually have any cameras in my room. But now I'm seriously beginning to reconsider. With two of our campers having passed with flying colors I've decided to raise the stakes by inviting an actual villain onto the island. Have I made the wrong decision, and could I have possibly doomed the entire cast including myself? See what happens on this episode of…Total. Drama. Island." Chris said.
Earlier that morning it had begun to storm; the skies were black and lightning flashed as rain poured down on the island. The cabins shook to the rolling thunder waking Gwen and Owen. The Goth girl moaned and threw the pillow over her head as she tried to drown out the sounds. Elsewhere Geoff got up to take a shower heading over to the bathhouse ignoring the thunder and lightning as he went in. the lightning struck the roof of the bathhouse as Geoff's screams could be heard outside not knowing if he was struck. A while later he sat in a fetal position in the mess hall completely black with smoke rising from the back of his head while the rest of the campers ate their breakfasts.
"Dude you really should have known better than to do that." Chris told him.
"I didn't think I was actually in danger! I mean I've showered plenty of times while it was storming out!" he wined.
"Well maybe next time you'll actually use some common sense. Ok, campers today's challenge is a bit different. DJ and Cody you guys will be working as partners today as you take on an honest to God supervillain!" he said.
"What?! Chris are you crazy?" Gwen said standing up.
"There's been some debate about that. But I promise you, you guys are perfectly safe." He affirmed.
"Who's the villain we're going up against?" asked Cody.
"The Weather Wizard is an enemy of the Flash. As Kid Flash, you and DJ are to try and stop him from ruining the island with his weather wand. It's as simple as that." he replied with a smile.
"Why would you even bring him here?" Cody asked.
"The ratings, what else?" he shrugged.
"I suggest you get into costume, your challenge starts in one hour…or sooner depending on what kind of damage he causes." Chris said. The scene later cut to the confession can.
"I can't believe Chris is having us do this!" Cody said.
"I know I'm not exactly the bravest brother on the island, but I feel better knowing that Cody doesn't have to face him alone. I just wish it wasn't me. A guy that can control the weather?! There's no telling what that guy will do!" DJ said before cutting out.
A while later in the cabin Cody was slipping into his Kid Flash uniform.
"Can you help zip me up?" he asked Duncan. His friend took hold of the zipper and pulled it up for him as he slipped on his mask and zipped up the back.
Cody's uniform was yellow with red pants and a jagged bolt design for a belt, yellow wrap around shin guards with a serrated point on the outside. And had red gloves with wrist and forearm guards in the same style. On his chest was a while circle with black outline and a red lightning bolt that streaked across at an angle. His mask covered his face leaving his hair, eyes, and mouth exposed and had a pair of red lightning bolt ear cowls to finish it off. Meanwhile DJ changed into his uniform slipping on a black sleeveless shirt with a gold ring and stylized thunderbolt on his chest. Black cargo pants and blue kicks, with a large black and blue overcoat with yellow trim inside, dark blue gloves and finally the white face mask and goggles and a dreadlock wig finishing off the look.
The two heroes stood out in uniform a while later standing next to each other.
"You ready for this?" DJ asked.
"As I'll ever be." He replied nervously.
In the distance streaks of lightning could be seen touching the forest beyond them, the two guys braced themselves. They seemed to be focused on a single direction, Cody tried his best not to pee his pants like before. While DJ steadied his nerves as best he could. It wasn't hard to tell that they were scared and watched the rampant lightning fly through the trees.
"Oh I almost forgot!" Chris yelled running over to Kid Flash. The host took out a syringe and jammed it in his arm before he could get a sentence out.
"Ow! What was that for?" he yelled rubbing his arm.
"This is Velocity 9, it'll give you superspeed so you stand a better chance against him." he said.
"Yo what about me?" DJ yelled.
"Sorry man, your on your own." He said before retreating.
"What?! Dude you cannot be serious!" he yelled back.
"Head's up!" Cody yelled and pushed DJ out of the way as a stray lightning bolt jumped out of the forest and nearly struck them.
"Whoa what the hell?!" yelled DJ.
In the next second a black and green streak raced towards them and punched Cody in the face. The kid speedster toppled back end over end before he was hit a second time and sent flying into the campground sign, the campers ducked as he flew over them and hit the ground a second later with blood gushing from his nose.
"What the hell's wrong with you Chris?" yelled Gwen.
"Who is that guy?" asked Courtney.
"Is he the Weather Wizard?" Heather asked.
"I'm Inertia." He said before attacking the others.
DJ raced over and tried to stop him but was knocked aside by the villain. In the next instant he made his way over to Cody. But Cody took off in the next second his superspeed powers finally kicking in. Kid Flash and Inertia raced across the island, with Inertia fast on his tail. Cody kicked it up a notch and went Mach One in an instant. The two speedsters raced around the island several times over leaving DJ to face the Weather Wizard alone. A bolt of lightning shot out of the woods and struck DJ, but instead of electrocuting him something amazing happened. He had absorbed the lightning, power becoming his own. He felt himself spin around as the power surged through him. He felt himself growing stronger, braver, and more confident in himself. As he powered up he could almost hear a chorus in the background playing.
DJ punched the ground unleashing a fork of lightning and exploded underneath the ground as Kid Flash raced by Inertia was caught up in the blast and hurled backwards. The gang cheered as the evil speedster landed hard on his back.
"An incredible comeback from DJ, go get em man!" yelled Chris.
DJ smiled as the power coursed through his body and lunged himself at Inertia. The green speedster could barely register what just happened when he saw DJ pounce and recovered by slamming both soles of his feet into DJ's chest. The champion flew back as Inertia rushed after him and punched him in the chest repeatedly before he could even reach the ground. His teammates groaned as they watched him take the beating. It was the worst they had seen yet. As Kid Flash looked on he knew he had to do something and reentered the fight and blindsided Inertia with a tackle. The two speedsters rolled across the ground as Kid Flash was about to deliver a punch Inertia elbowed his face and knocked him off and then proceeded to pummel young Cody.
"Aren't you going to do something?" Gwen asked the host.
"Maybe not but I will! Come on!" said Geoff.
Duncan soon joined him as they went down to challenge the speedster.
"You're just going to stand there while they get beaten?" asked Courtney.
"They have to handle this on their own, if they want to help that's their problem." Chris said.
"Ugh, your unbelievable!" she scoffed.
Geoff grabbed Inertia by the shoulder and was met with a fist to the face knocking the cowboy back. Duncan ambushed him but was also no match for the green speedster and was knocked down as well, by this time DJ started to recover and saw his friends in danger.
"Not in my house. Hey Inertia!" he yelled. The speedster looked back and saw Static fly towards him.
In a split second Inertia turned and got him with a clothesline. The hero choked as he hung there and fell to the ground. The evil speedster brought his hands together making a sledgehammer attack and brought it down on the young teen, Kid Flash intercepted him again with a head butt to the stomach and sent Inertia back into a tree. Kid grabbed him by the shirt and punched him in the face rattling the evil speedster.
"Arent you going to stop this?!" Gwen yelled.
"They could seriously get hurt!" said Bridgett.
"Chris do something!" yelled LaShawna.
"You know what I think your right." he told them and held up his arm. Chef nodded and pressed a button on a remote teleporting Inertia out of the battle. Cody landed face down a second later.
"What just happened?" Heather asked.
"Their holograms?" asked Gwen.
"Not entirely, see they were here but when you guys started complaining I sent them away." He explained.
"So they weren't holograms?" she asked.
"Oh no they were real all right, speaking of which I think that just teleported away Inertia and not the Weather Wizard." He said. Gwen and the others gasped.
"You guys ok down there?" Chris asked.
DJ was laying face down on the ground but lifted a thumbs-ups signaling he was fine...for the most part. A simular response came from Geoff as well, Duncan was sitting up and rubbed his face. Over by the tree Cody turned over and leaned partway against the tree trunk. Gwen rushed over to Cody's side as the rest of the team attended to their teammates.
"You all right?" she asked.
"Oh yeah I'm fine, never better." he smiled and nearly passed out.
"You did great out there, that was really brave the way you saved DJ." she said. The kid speedster flashed a crooked smile at the girl.
"Thanks Gwen." he said.
"All right let's the others to the infirmary if they need it." said Chris.
