Tinman was about to begin chatting with the other android when his communications systems beeped. Operator's voice came over the system.
"WHAT are you doing? I ordered you to eliminate Blackout. But it doesn't matter now, I have a better fate in store for him. Tinman, your orders are to locate, and capture, alive, the target. Bring him to me. NOW."
It looked like Tinman's conversation with the other one would have to wait. He took to the air, and engaged his tracking systems, following Blackout's signature to Seaworld. The target was fleeing, and was using his powers while doing so. Tinman landed in front of him, and engaged his flamethrower, forcing Blackout to shut down his power, and jump to the side. A stream of bullets followed him, and one clipped him in the calf, slowing him down long enough for Tinman to grab him, and sling him over his shoulder, slamming Blackout's head against the titanium chassis that was Tinman's body, blacking Blackout out. He then took to the air again, and flew off, prize in hand. That had been easier than expected.
Blackout woke up with a daze, and found himself staring at a rack of very sharp looking utensils, most of them glowing a red glow. He was strapped down to a steel table; all of his limbs were pinned. A man in a lab coat walked up to him, and smiled darkly.
"Welcome Derek. You will grow to be good friends with me in the short times ahead." He then grabbed one of the objects, and jabbed it into Blackout's leg. The pain of the burning spike ripped through Blackout, and caused him to convulse. The next few hours...or were they days...he couldn't tell, were wracked with pain and fire, torment on both the physical and mental levels. His mind, shut so long against pain, crumbled, and it washed through him. And all through the torture treatment, the robot called Tinman watched, and recorded for future reference, the breaking of the mind of a mutant.
