"Uh..." Ronin held his hands up to show he ment no harm. "Hey...hey, Darklight. How's it going?"
Harry awoke, he wasn't sure how long it had been since he entered the hopsital. An IV drip was sticking into his arm, a counter-agent to the poison being pumped into him. A police man was sitting waiting for him to stir.
"Hey, Johhny. What happened to ya?"
"I..." Harry hesistated, pretending to be recalling what had happened, while in fact making it up. "Jack. That vigilante Jack was resisting to gather with the other heroes. I tried to reason with him, but he resisted arrest and rammed something into my chest."
"We're already looking for Jack and the rest of those super-yahoos, but we'll make sure we catch Jack. Take care, Johnny." The cop left "Johnny" 's room, and next a nurse came in.
"Well, Mr.Simms, it looks like you're on your way to a full recovery. I gotta say though, whatever infected you sure was something strange. You're blood was like nothing we'd ever seen before, like it kept changing blood-types. We were able to stabilize it, so you should be fine."
As she left the room, Harry's face became pale. His blood. Of course his blood would be different, his abilities would have made his blood incredibly malleable. They had stabilized, she said. Did that mean...
Yes. Harry could feel it. His power of super-mimicry was gone. It ws like part of him had died. He had lost the power to duplicate powers. Hopefully that was all he lost.
Harry looked at his hand, and attempted to transform into Jack.
Haze. Nothing. Vandal. Nothing. Flame. Nothing. Chroium. Nothi-
No. His hand, and the rest of his body, were covered in silver substance like Chromium. He did not look exactly like the hero, but the powers had been duplicated. Then Harry wondered. Perhaps they had only cured his shapeshifting and mimicking...Perhaps he still had retained his mimicked powers.
Returning to human form, he focused on the powers of Sunburn. To his delight, an orb of fire appeared in his hand. Lifting his other hand, he was also pleased to discover that, when he focused on Frost's power as well as Sunburn's, his hand was covered in ice while the other hand stayed enflamed.
It was like part of Harry had died...but another part was reborn.
