These woods are dark and quiet. Not a cricket chirps.

Many trees are bare. If not, their leaves are so green, they're almost black. Here and there, an owl hoots. A wolf howls...

Here and there, fallen logs lie. Mushrooms sprout from them...

Leaves cover most of the ground. They're gradually becoming the soil of this forest...

As a she-wolf forages, she steps on a twig. Its echo can be heard far and wide. At least no one rallies to its sound. Rather, everything in this forest runs from it, if they can tell what caused it to snap...

She's surrounded by the security of her pack. If only her alpha would show up to do that every once in a while...

Most of these wolves are either blonde or red. Most are female...and enhanced.

This female raises her nose, and smells the air. She smells something. It smells good. It smells like food...

She follows it. Up ahead, there's a dead rabbit lying up against the base of a tree trunk. Her stomach growls. She creeps up on it, and scoops it up in her jaws...

Ouch; that hurt. She whimpers, as sharp points go into the roof of her mouth. She staggers back...but realizes she's stuck. Something's got her bound...

She looks around. The rabbit is gone. She's been caught. A human, or wizard, has left a baited wolfsangel tied to a tree, for her and her packmates' consumption...

Near her, her fellow wolves flee. They leave her for the humans...it seems...

While struggling, the wolfsangel's chain releases a green rocket into the sky. Aloft, it explodes, and leaves a glowing signal in the sky...

The signal takes the shape of a green glowing cloud, that takes the shape of an octopus-like creature. Its tentacles writhe...

Before she knows it, three black horses have arrived. Simultaneously, they dismount. One at a time, they draw weapons. They close in on the she-wolf, from behind.

It's Living Laser, Red Skull, and Scorcher...of Hydra. Living Laser is made of a red-glowing photon-based energy. Scorcher wears an exosuit that's got flamethrowers to spare. Red Skull is a wraith. In certain lights...or, as he wills it...his all-red head can be seen through the hood of his wraith's cloak.

Stuck to the wolfsangel, the she-wolf whimpers more, and struggles more...hurting herself more. Red Skull approaches in a creepy fashion, and reaches forth, with his mummified hands...

From out of nowhere, a black he-wolf teleports. He lacks eyes, and bears a green-glowing, lightning bolt-shaped scar across the part of his head where his eyes would be.

He wedges himself in between his pack female, and the Hydra men who dare threaten her. Fangs bared, he barks a warning shot.

The assault is on. Living Laser fires his lasers, getting brighter to do so. Scorcher generates flame, and nearly sets the woods on fire. Red Skull hovers away and observes from a distance, waiting to sense the alpha's Achilles heel...if he has one...besides his lack of eyesight, that is...

With a combination of wolf speed, acrobatics, and teleportation, Harry Potter dodges the Living Laser's lasers and Scorcher's fires. At some point, both Hydra warriors will tire...

When they do, Harry uses his legilimency. He raids all three warriors' minds...and finds that all three of them have VERY trying pasts.

Living Laser self-detonates, clearing over a hectare of forest. Cornered in this wraith's body, and not being able to maintain it like this, Red Skull retreats, and flies away.

From his scar, Harry shoots a green laser of his own...and shatters Scorcher's exosuit. Now it's wearer, Steven Hudak, is exposed and vulnerable.

He lies on his back, surrounded by the ruins of his armor. Harry teleports right over him, and takes his throat in his jaw. He bites down. Hudak suffocates more and more by the moment...

Back at the tree, the she-wolf whimpers louder, and shakes her head. Via legilimency, Harry reads her mind. She's begging him not to kill this Hydra warrior.

Throat still in his jaws, Harry nods once...and releases the poor bastard's throat. Instead, he backs away, and starts nipping at the man's heels, hocks, and flanks...as if he were a sheep, and Harry a sheepdog.

Interesting; we've all heard of a wolf in sheep's clothing. But this time, the wolf is actually mimicking a sheepdog, rather than a sheep...

Hudak gets up, and starts running. Harry bites into his leg, and teleports away. He leaves Hudak somewhere far from here, without his armor, and teleports away. In Harry's absence, Hudak topples over, and broods over his sore throat and lower leg...

Harry teleports back, and attends to his baited she-wolf. By now, the rest of the pack has arrived.

One of the pack females, Ororo Munroe, summons a rain. She keeps it around until Scorcher's fires die. Once they're dead, the rains leave.

In the sky, the rains soon erode the green cloud to nothing. A pox upon Hydra, for trying to mimic the Dark Mark...

All around the other she-wolves shake themselves dry. Harry does, too.

A red she-wolf, Medusa, attends the blonde one, and helps her off the hook. With prehensile fur...and the perfect dexterity that comes with it, she simply unhooks Patsy from the wolfsangel, lowers her, and sheds her over-long fur, once the job's done.

Another blonde wolf, Carol Danvers, arrives, generates an atomic ball of fire in her jaws, and spits it, destroying the wolfsangel once and for all. She howls, once she's finished.

The blonde wolf that got caught, Patsy Walker, is actually a beech marten. And she's a bit of a quick healer, thankfully.

The wolves check up on one another. All are in good shape...including Patsy Walker, the marten who got caught. With their alpha in the lead, they run back through the forest. They find the pack, and rejoin the hunt.

Once, their alpha was a boy wizard, named Harry Potter. It was often rumored that he was destined to slay a great wizard villain; the darkest of all time. But then, something happened to Harry along the way. His name is Fenrir Greyback...and his bite was, and still is, MUCH worse than his howl...
