Lightstar was the next to go down, as one splinter that had embedded in a bookshelf branched out to pierce his shoulder. Fleur caught him before he could land on top of more of the bone needles.
Hmm. Do I joke about Fleur-de-Lis from MLP or Fleur Delacour from Harry Potter…
Brandish shifted her footing, and the slivers of bone that scattered the ground around her shifted, some reshaping into starbursts of ultrafine needle points, waiting for her to step on them. She knew from experience that they would penetrate the soles of her boots.
It really seems like Marquis was the kind of villain you should probably try to fight from a range.
Lady Photon fired a spray of laser blasts in Marquis’ general direction, tearing into bookshelves, antique furniture and the rack of wine bottles.
Yeah, like, this is exactly what I’m talking about. His power is well suited for near combat and setting traps close by. These lasers and the like are the attacks you should probably be focusing on.
Marquis created a shield of bone to protect himself, expanding its dimensions until it was taller and wider than he was.
Even if he can do this.
To be fair, I suppose that would leave it all up to one or a few members of the team, with the rest being largely unable to act.
