After surviving the ultimate test, the test that showed the power of working together, the Parr family returned to their normal life. The hope of returning to the glory days of working as supers for the government was a long ways off, but the family was happier than ever. They had defeated the Omnidroid and Syndrome, proving their worth as supers. They thought everything was back in line. That is, until...
"Aren't you proud of me, dad?" Dash asked his father.
"You betcha! You were bookin out there son!" Bob replied.
"And what's even better is we all know I could have won first place because I'm SO fast!" Dash said excitedly. Violet simply rolled her eyes. He always received so much attention. But then again, she thought, I will receive plenty of attention this week.
Did he really just ask me out this Friday? Was I just imagining things? No, he really did. He said she seemed... different. But different was supposed to be good, right? She sighed. Or maybe different is what he wanted, something more like what he was looking for?
Bob, Helen, and Dash were still talking about Dash's accomplishment at winning second place at his track meet. Violet couldn't believe that only three mere months ago they had nearly died in a plane crash, ran around killing off bad guys on a remote island, been captured, and then defeated a humongous threatening robot called the Omnidroid. It was all still sinking in. She kept wondering if she would ever become a real super like her mom and dad and follow in their footsteps. And just a few months earlier she had been complaining about the fact that she couldn't be "normal" and wishing she was. As for becoming a super... stupid government. If she could only have another chance at using her powers to help people. She had failed so many times. Only in the end had she succeeded in being helpful at all.
Suddenly, as if to answer he mind's thoughts, the ground began to quake. People began screaming and running frantically in all directions. Cars shook and began flying through the air. The road on which they were standing began cracking and breaking apart. A huge pointed object resembling a screw but much larger penetrated the earth surface only a few hundred feet from them. It toppled over crushing everything in its path. A compartment on the top of the turning machinery popped open and a pole with a strange someone sitting on the top of it rose several stories into the air. The someone was a very strange creature, with tan skin and a mining helmet. He had teeth like a beaver and shouted with a booming voice.
"Behold, the Underminer! I am always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war on peace and happiness! Soon all will tremble before me!"
So much for things returning to normal, Violet thought. Then she shook her head. What am I thinking? This is my chance! OUR chance to show that the world needs supers! Her super instincts turned on and she quickly reached for her mask in her pocket. As she put it on she looked to see her mom and both of her brothers wearing their masks too. Her dad put his on. Luckily they were all ready and were wearing their super suits under their clothes. The "Underminer's" voice continued booming from his platform. Suddenly Lucius, who was known as Frozone, came sliding up on his ice slide.
"What in Metroville is going on?" he said, "Who is this guy?"
"Whoever he is, he's shown up in the wrong place at the wrong time," Bob replied.
"Oh ho, you got that right, Bob," Frozone replied.
"It's showtime!" Bob said.
The Underminer was continuing his declare of war," Even now my darkness spreads over your pitiful globe! It has begun, the Rise of the Underminer!
Well, I hope you like it so far. It will get better. This is just kind of the starter chapter, but not necessarily a prologue. The next chapter will be longer. As for updating, that also depends on where I am in the video game. Funny huh, that I d need to depend on a video game to do a fanfiction! Please Review! R&R! PLease!
