OOC: Would Tandy know if the tailor shop is normally open or closed on Saturdays?
Mrs. Zandofsky had her radio on, so you know she's not Orthodox and you're pretty sure they'd be open every day but Sunday since Saturdays accommodate customers unable to make it to the shop during the working week.OOC: Would Tandy know if the tailor shop is normally open or closed on Saturdays?
"Yeah, let him slink back into the sewers," Spider-Man says, trying to will his eyes to adjust to the darkness. "Vermy, try to stay out of trouble for at least a few days, okay?"Sensing Spiderman nearby I call out ‘Should we let him go?’
"I can do Ryker's standing on my head...and while I remember your insults I'll think of all the different ways I can disembowel you. Or maybe I'll do the girl first and make you watch, tough guy.""I'm the not the one who thinks fur is in fashion, fangface, you're in a costume too, and at least mine isn't accessorized with a fur boa." He says then paused before continuing. "Now play nice, and tell me who sent you, maybe just maybe if you do, I can make sure you get the nicest supercell at Ryker's."

Spidey starts back towards the light coming through the front windows and door. "C'mon, DD. We need to make sure Scorpion and Sabretooth are secure and that we can get them safely on their way to Rykers."
Vermin runs off, followed by numerous rats, and disappears through a manhole, the cover of which closes behind him with a metallic clang.I wave to Vermin to go and once he's far enough away I backflip and follow Spidey.
'Something is up,' I tell the others. 'Sabretooth is far too relaxed for a prisoner.' I reach out with my senses to see if I can detect anything.
"I ain't scared of you craven super-types. You'd never hurt me now that I'm surrendered and helpless," laughs Sabretooth."Yeah, he knows something's bigger is coming, but I wouldn't smile too much fangface, I might use you as a shield, Cap has one. I figure you can't be as useful if you don't talk, so might as well put you between me and harm's way. You ever think all the blood on your claws would ever come back to haunt you? " He pauses then says "Boo." with a very low voice as an obvious threat. While fingering a sharp-edged scarab dart.
"I'm not worried, insect!" spits the scowling Scorpion. "But how come you let Vermin go? He's in this as deep as we are."Spider-Man swings up and lands near Scorpion. "You might as well take a chill pill, buddy. You're not going anywhere. Even if you do manage to free yourself again, I have plenty more webbing to snare you over and over again. You're heading to Rykers, I hear they already have a nice comfy bed for you. If you don't stop struggling, I might be forced to clobber you a few times until you stop. I don't wanna do that, so play nice and relax. We'll have you on your way to your new digs shortly."
They're too far away and your angle looking down at them makes it impossible to read their lips. Whatever it is that they're discussing, they're just about done as the swarthy one has just reached into his pocket and is now jangling the keys to the delivery van. They look like they're about to drive away.While trying not to be seen from her vantage point on top of the roof, Dagger concentrates on trying to hear what the two men are saying.
"Why should I tell you anything, horn-head?" sneers the Scorpion. "Did your redheaded Russkie girlfriend tell you how I thrashed her a while back?* She's lucky she's still breathing."'Deep in to who?' I ask Scorpion.
"Maybe you're a tough guy, but even if I believed you," says Sabretooth, "Spider-Man and Daredevil are a couple o' goody two-shoes and would never let you hurt a defenseless captive." However, he stands up with a shrug indicating he'll voluntarily surrender to the police as instructed."Khonshu is not a god of mercy, Fangface. He is a god of vengeance," he walks around behind Sabertooth, "I am his knight, remember you've no idea how much blood a man may have had on his hands in the name of vengeance." He stays behind Sabretooth and has pulled out his Ankh, keeping watch on the prisoner, while watching for danger. "You can stand and walk to the police now, or I can simply drag you, your choice," he says to Sabretooth. Though he stays wary.
Before the van drives away and turns out of the alley, you mentally take down the blue-on-orange New York license plate number 77-QDL and note that the van is a white Ford Econoline, probably an '83 or '84.Blast it all! thought Dagger to herself ruefully. While these two were probably dirty, it was also possible that they were just a couple of guys employed by one of Fisk's legitimate business fronts. She didn't want to attack them without a better confirmation of them being involved in something illicit. More so, something big was brewing, and she didn't want to get separated from Spider-Man and the others. She knew it would probably be best to get back soon to where they were before they headed off in God knows what direction.
She'll take a moment to make a mental note of the model and color of the van, and if the angle from the rooftop permits, she'll try to get a good look at the license plate number and memorize it. After the van has left, she'll go down to the alley below and take a quick look around, looking for any possible clues and perhaps sneaking a peek through the back windows of the buildings that had managed to avoid being damaged by the rioting.
If there's nothing int he area that demands further action, she will then make her way back to the fight with Sabretooth, Scorpion , and Vermin occurred.
Spider-Man makes sure that Scorpion is nicely bound up in webs, and will reinforce any areas that looks suspect. After that, he will prepare to carry him to the police.
Before I post the next update, does Spider-Man want to hold off on departing with the Scorpion or does Daredevil want to go with Spider-Man?'There is some devious schemer behind all this,' DD says. 'Scorpion, who has brought you and Sabertooth together and to what end?'
"The name's Dagger," the young woman responded. "Spider-Man knows me. I also have some information, although it may be unrelated to whatever the Animal Brigade was up to here.""Hey Spider-Man, Daredevil, young lady who's a name I don't know yet--hang up a minute, I've got some information!"
"I'm Moon Knight. Dagger, that is good to know. Sabretooth said someone brought in Kraven the Hunter, and he's involved in all this--if Fisk is a crime lord? Then he may be the money behind all of this, but I don't wish to rush headlong into assumptions.""The name's Dagger," the young woman responded. "Spider-Man knows me. I also have some information, although it may be unrelated to whatever the Animal Brigade was up to here."
In a lower voice, where only the other nearby heroes can hear her, she adds, "It involves Wilson Fisk. I know Spider-Man knows that Fisk is actually a major crime lord, but I don't know if either of you have had dealings with him," she says to Moon Knight and Daredevil.
Moon Knight, Spider-Man, and Dagger see Daredevil make a beeline to where Vermin was last seen, stopping at a manhole cover. Daredevil easily removes the cover and descends into the darkness without hesitation. The other three see his red form merge with the blackness after only a few rungs down the ladder in the narrow shaft. It's curious that he didn't even stop to get a flashlight or ask Dagger to shine a light down the shaft for him.DD chuckles, 'Oh I know Fisk...a bit. Let me see if I can track Vermin maybe he'll lead us to Fisk or whoever else is working for him.'
"Yeah, that was my thought," Dagger admitted. "Also, with the lack of garbage piling up during the current strike, either someone paid a fair penny for private contractors to clean it up... or maybe someone with enough power and influence with the unions to have someone do it anyways." She doesn't mention Fisk directly by name, but then, she probably doesn't have to.He then looks to Dagger "Though it is very odd that those buildings were untouched--perhaps they were paid off to avoid those structures?" Moon Knight says then pauses when Daredevil sticks his head out.
