In a swampy area, El Tigre and Frida are fighting off a swamp monster. El Tigre has been trying to slash at it, but it keeps regenerating and shooting muck at him and Frida.

"This almost like dealing with Dr. Chipotle Jr's guacamole monster, without the guacamole." said El Tigre avoiding the spirit's blast spit

"I wouldn't think it best to compare this spirit to something from your dimension. While this isn't the king spirit of this dimension, this one is powerful and dangerous and not something you would simply make out of food." said Pyro

"What's this thing exactly made of?" Frida asked Pyro

"Polluted water, oil, dead plants, and other stuff." said Pyro

"Then all of it can simply be burned. Manny, I got an idea. Throw me into the spirit!" said Frida activating the fire in her guitar

"What!?" said Manny confused

"Just do it!" said Frida

Manny did what she said and threw her into the spirit's mouth. Once inside, Frida played her guitar and made the monster spirit burn up from the inside. Frida then came out of the monster and called Manny over to help finish things off. Manny punched the spirit and Frida hit it with her guitar on fire, thus defeating the spirit and collecting the crystal it left.


Back in their Miracle City, Manny and Frida are on the rooftop eating some burritos with Pyro.

"You've managed to improve at a fast rate Frida; even though these aren't the high level spirits that I promised, your power is starting to increase exponentially." said Pyro sitting on Frida's lap

"So how powerful are these other spirits that you keep talking about?" Frida asked

"Very powerful! I would say that they are just as powerful as that villain El Mal Verde but a little stronger. Once your power starts to increase Frida, you'll be powerful enough to defeat the mass amount of spirits that are coming to Miracle City all on your own. I've gotta go now; there's something I need to take care of." said Pyro as he gets up and leaves

"See you later Pyro!" said Manny and Frida

"So, what do you want to do tomorrow? I was thinking I test my powers on Zoe Aves." said Frida with a sinister look on her face

"She's not in Miracle City at the moment." said Manny

"How do you know that?" Frida asked with a worried-angry look on her face

"I uh….saw her leave with some family of hers the other day; she looked like she was….going somewhere in the mountains I guess." said Manny hiding what really happened to Zoe, especially the kiss her got from her

"Ok! We can try my powers out on something else tomorrow; maybe prank Chakal ." said Frida

"Sure, but can it be later in the afternoon? I'm actually going to start doing this list that my dad gave me from Mind Ghost." said Manny

"What's on the list?" Frida asked

"Some heroic jobs she says that I can do to prove myself to the Royal Suits and earn money at the same time." said Manny

"Awesome! I can't wait to do these things and earn money." said Frida with an excited look on her face

"Sorry, but I've gotta do these things on my own; I can't have any help." said Manny

"Oh, that's fine; I'll just watch from the sidelines. I gotta go!" said Frida noticing what time it is

After that, Manny and Frida went their separate ways. However, they didn't realize that they were both being watched by Alice/Mind Ghost. She decided to follow Frida home since she is the one that she needs to follow at the moment.


When Frida arrived at her house, she could hear laughing coming from the family room. At first she thought it was her family playing trivia games about law, but her father and sisters came in right behind her.

"Do you know who your mother is talking to?" said Chief Suarez

"I figured it was you guys." said Frida

"It seems you've all returned from your busy days today." said Alice sipping tea with Frida's mom

"Hey, your Ms. Grainger." said Frida

"You know her!?" said Chief Suarez

"She's the new guidance counselor at my school." said Frida

"She's also the new hero I've been hearing about who's been working with Pantera." Chief Suarez pointed out

"Yes, but I would prefer not to talk about my superhero lifestyle right now Chief Suarez; I'm here as a guidance counselor, not as Mind Ghost. (to Frida) I came here for you Frida." said Alice sipping her tea

"Why me!?" Frida asked

"Since I came in during the end of the school year, I never really got to know most of the students before they left for the summer vacation. I've been going door to door trying to get to know some of the students a bit more personally just so I know what I'm dealing with a bit." said Alice

"She wants to help guide you on your path to being an adult and preparing for high school Frida. Isn't that exciting?" said Carmela

"Sure!" said Frida sarcastically

"This is my home address; I just wanted to give this to you personally. (to Anita and Nikita) I also look forward to speaking with you two as well." said Alice giving them her business cards

"We don't go Frida's school." said Anita and Nikita

"I know, but your mother recommended it for you two" said Alice

"I thought both of you could also use some of her guidance as well, especially since your school's guidance counselor doesn't seem to be doing his job." said Carmela

"But mom, I already know what I want to do." said Frida

"We know what we want to do too." said Anita and Nikita

"True, but this could be good for the three of you and I expect you both to be there tomorrow." said Carmela

"Fine!" said all three girls

"Great! I look forward to seeing all three of you tomorrow. (to Frida via her telepathy, discreetly) Make sure you don't bring Pyro with you and bring your guitar with you." said Alice

"Why don't you stay for dinner Alice; I would like to talk to you more." said Carmela

"Alright!" said Alice


The next day, Frida, Anita and Nikita headed to Alice's home to begin their session with her. When they arrived, they noticed some other kids from Frida's school and the twin's school as well waiting at the gate of Alice's house. When the gates opened, everyone walked in and were greeted by Ronald at the door. He said: Each of you were given a number; if you are number one, then you will go first; I also prepared some cookies for all of you too. As luck would have it, Frida is number one so she gets to go first. When she entered the house, she was lead to an all green office with a couch, brown desk(where Alice is sitting at), green chair, and a window.

"I'm glad to see that you came." said Alice

"My mom didn't give me much choice, but at least my sisters have to go to this too." said Frida

"I would also like to add that I gave them the very last numbers for today so they'll be here longer than; I figured that you would like that." Alice said showing the list of people in order of who is next

"I do! But, you won't have me here for long; I already know what I want to be." said Frida sitting on the couch

"A Rock Star!" said Alice

"Yeah! I will be famous all over the world." Frida shouted and played her guitar

"So, you didn't wish to be famous immediately." said Alice

"No! I want to earn my fame with my own talent, not just make people like my music based on a wish." said Frida

"So what did you wish for?" Alice asked

"Why do you want to know?"

" While I did call you here to kind of talk about your future plans, I'm really trying to save you from Pyro; he's using you." said Alice sipping her tea

"How do you know?" Frida asked with an uncertain look on her face

"I've run into him before; you're not the only one he's made a contract with." said Alice

"You made a contract with him?" Frida asked

"No! He's an enemy of mine who's caused a lot of pain. He may offer you power now, but he has an ulterior motive." said Alice

"Do you know what that motive is?" Frida asked Alice still uncertain what she is talking about

"No! I don't know what he has planned for you right now, at least not enough proof to give you in order to believe me about it, but I can tell you that it's not good for you." Alice admitted

"Will it have any effect on my goal to be a rock star? Frida asked

"Technically no, but…." said Alice before getting interrupted

"Then I'll be fine. If anything, I can just burn Pyro with my powers and send him away." said Frida confidently

"Don't you mean have Manny come rescue you like he always does when you're in a helpless situation against Pyro." said Alice

"I don't want to be helpless anymore; I'm done with that. I have to be able to keep up with Manny." Frida shouted

Keep up with him? Did he tell you that you're slowing him down now?" Alice asked

"No, but I'm getting tired of always sitting on the sidelines most of the time. I help Manny with whatever most of the time, but I want to do more." said Frida

"But you lack the power to do so. While you already have plans for your future, you want to have power that you can call your own during the time that you have now." said Alice

"To be honest, and don't tell anyone about this, I was thinking of "borrowing" Manny's mom glove of power at one point. It's not like she's using it and I don't think I'm going to go crazy like she does." said Frida

"I won't tell anyone. However, you're better off not wanting that glove since it's connected to her right now; you deserve your own power." Alice giggled a bit

"That's why I can't give up this power; you can't make me." said Frida

"I wasn't going to make you; I was trying to convince you to give it up yourself and figure out what you wished for." said Alice

"I didn't tell you what I wished for." Frida stated confused

"You didn't have to tell me; I just figured it out." said Alice

"Dang!" Frida snapped her fingers in anger

"Frida, I'm one of the last of many people with power who should tell you that you should give up on the power you just recently obtained after being powerless. If you want to keep this power that Pyro gave you for right now, then fine; I won't try and force you to give it up. However, I need you to promise me that you won't fight anyone that has a familiar like you do." said Alice walking up to Frida and placing her hands on hers

"Ok! All he's asking me to do is fight off evil spirits from other dimensions; other than that, I use the powers for however I want." said Frida

"I see! Well, you better go; I'm sure you have other plans." said Alice

"Ok, bye! Wait! How come you didn't tell my mom or my dad about this?" Frida asked before leaving

"Like I said, I would rather you give up those powers on your own. At the same time, talking to your mother, seeing where you live, and eating with your family, I could tell that doing that would only end badly for you, especially your father. He would simply blame your friend Manny for the situation you're in." said Alice

"Yeah, he would! He hates Manny because "he's a bad influence" or "he will only bring you misery". This just him not being able to get over the accident that happened with Manny around the time he first started being El Tigre; it's a long story. I just want him to get over it already and accept that Manny is my friend." said Frida rolling her eyes

"Eventually, he'll have to get over it whether he likes it or not." said Alice

"Who knows!? I bet my grandma would understand. I'm going to go now." said Frida

"Alright! My door is always open if you ever want to talk; also, tell Ronald to send the next student in." said Alice

"Ok!" said Frida leaving the room

"(to herself) She's not trying to be a superhero nor does she really care about being a supervillain; she just wants to have power that she can call her own and keep up with her friend. Manny appears to be her motivation for the most part. She may want to be more than just his friend and believes having power will be able to keep his interest in her; whether it's out of keeping him as best friend or becoming his girlfriend can go either way. I'll have to keep a close eye on Frida and whatever Pyro has planned for her. She's not like the other people who have made contracts with Pyro and the other Familiars; I can't force her to give up this power like I did with them, especially after all the stuff Carmela told me about Frida's grandmother." said Alice


(Flashback)

After eating with the Suarez Family and getting to know some of the better, Alice helps Carmela with the dishes since it's her turn to do wash the dishes this week. As they are washing the dishes, Alice and Carmela begin to talk more; Alice started the conversation since she noticed some pictures of Chief Suarez when he was younger and with a Mohawk, and a picture of someone who almost looks like Frida but very older and has the words "Granny Suarez" on it.

"So Frida is more like her grandmother on your husband's side?" Alice asked Carmela

"Yes, and like Emiliano when he was younger too; they were a wild bunch like Frida is now." said Carmela

"Where is her grandmother now?" Alice asked

"She lives in a retirement home outside of Miracle City; her and Emiliano rarely ever speak anymore. Frida loved going to visit her when she was younger; she even got inspiration to be a musician like her grandmother once was. However, I wish she would take in some interest in law like I did, but she has to be her person and she's going to be an adult in the blink of an eye." said Carmela

"Kids will have to come up with what they want themselves; no one, especially us adults, can stop them from pursuing their hopes and dreams. All we can really do is guide them down the right path." said Alice

"True! Do you have any children of your own?" Carmela asked

"No! I do have nieces and nephews back in London; one of them would get a kick out of meeting Frida." said Alice pausing for a bit and hiding a sad look on her face but turns happy


In the present day, Frida is heading outside after her talk with Alice. As she is walking, she noticed Pyro waiting for her on a nearby roof. She runs over to him to see what he wanted.

"What is it?" Frida asked

"Another Spirit has awakened. This one is in the dimension of Plants and it's a huge flower spirit." said Pyro

"Alright, let's go!" said Frida

"You're not bringing your friend El Tigre with us; he can go with us on this one you know." said Pyro

"He can't; he has something else to do." said Frida

"Ok! By the way, what were you doing in that place?" Pyro asked

"I was talking to Ms. Grainger about my future career; nothing I didn't already know. Why, do you know her?" said Frida pretending that the conversation she had with Alice didn't happen

"It's a long story; you don't need to know about it. Let's go!" said Pyro

"Alright!" said Frida


(A couple of days later)

Outside of Miracle City, a girl with green hair in a ponytail, blue (left) and green (right) eyes, light brown skin, about Frida's height, and is wearing an all-black rob that covers her entire body, is looking at all the entire place. Then a small monkey appears right on her shoulder.

"So this is Miracle City; the spicy cesspool of crime and villainy. If I remember correctly, this is your hometown you were talking about, Teresa." said the monkey

"Yes! It's nice to be back. So is Pyro here, Solomon?" Teresa asked Solomon

"He is! I bet he's made a contract with someone by now." said Solomon

"It doesn't matter; as long as he and the Bravo Family pay for what they've done." said Teresa said with a menacing look on her face


The Broken Sombrero! I bar that only the elders of Miracle City are allowed to go to drink, meet up with old friends, and talk about their lives. It is a small wooden building on the outside, but it is really big on the inside thanks to rooms that are hidden underground.

Grandpapi walked into the bar as some of the old people are either drinking or talking. As he walked up to the bar, he was told by the barkeep to go to the fifth floor. He then took the elevator to the fifth and activated his Golden Sombrero of Chaos to become Puma Loco. When he arrived at the fifth floor, there were three other people sitting down at different tables: the people are Lady Gobbler, Don Baffi, and General Chapuza. The four of them drew out their respective weapons in order to attack one another. After looking at each other menacingly, they all put their weapons down and moved to a round table in order to sit together.

"So we know why we're here?" said Puma Loco

"In light of recent events, we need to figure out how we're going to get rid of this Sebastian Bravo if he becomes the next municipal president of Miracle City." said Don Baffi using his mustache to show an image of them whacking Sebastian

"Imposible! He's a member of the Bravo Family; even if we attacked him, his family will retaliate tenfold." said Lady Gobbler

"We have to do something. If his plans to "clean up Miracle City with his bare hands" then we may have a problem. It one thing dealing with your son and your grandson Puma Loco , but this politician is more dangerous than them put together." said Don Baffi drinking his whisky

"We don't know for sure what he's planning since the Bravo Family hasn't been making any moves for a while now. From what I've heard from some old contacts that I have, they were betrayed from the inside by one of the children of the head of the Bravo Family." said General Chapuza

"What's the name of the child? He or she could tell us what Sebastian is up to." Don Baffi asked

"It's a woman and her name is Maria Bravo." said General Chapuza

"It's not my son's ex-wife; her last name is Gutierrez. Also, there is no possible way she is related to one of my most hated enemies. I mean, she can be a bit of a…..what's the word I'm looking for…...bore." said Puma Loco as everyone was looking at him and thinking about Maria

"Regardless, we need to take care of this Sebastian fellow; my boys and I are going to persuade him to drop out of the race. You all interested?" said Don Baffi

"Count me out! Zombie Town is holding its annual Dance Competition tonight. You're all more than welcome to attend." said General Chapuza showing them a flier with his grandson Che on it along with some other zombies

"No thanks! I'm taking my daughter out tonight to calm her nerves a bit; she's been locked up in her room and shouting in anger after Black Cuervo left to spend some time with her father." said Lady Gobbler

"Shadow Falcon is back! I love that guy; he did a few jobs for me a while back. Where is he now?" said Don Baffi

"I don't know where he and my granddaughter are right now. It's best I don't know since Voltura would go off and chase after them to no avail." said Lady Gobbler drinking her red wine

"Sounds like the Flock of Fury is breaking up." said General Chapuza laughing a bit

"No it is not! The Flock of Fury will live on once Black Cuervo is old enough to lead it and I pass away." said Lady Gobbler yelling at the zombie

"I thought Voltura would lead the Flock after you pass away?" said Puma Loco sipping his beer

"No way! That's like you giving your son all your evil secrets, which I can assume you never would do." said Lady Gobbler

"Most likely! I would give any and all of my secrets and weapons to my grandson." said Puma Loco thinking about what she just said

"Your grandson isn't even a full-fledged supervillain, Puma." said Don Baffi

"Neither is your granddaughter." Puma Loco reminded Don Baffi

"She's just learning the ropes of villainy and will eventually take over the family business…..once she's mature enough…..and after her father passes away. Sophia has potential, but she's just not ready for the full responsibility yet." said Don Baffi

"At least my grandson is ready to take over Zombie Town after I retire; he's showing more promise as a leader and the title of General every day. I think might have something to do with team…..team…...what's the word again?" said General Chapuza

"Eggplant!?" said Lady Gobbler

"Where are you going Puma?" said Don Baffi

"I have other plans now; Manny should be done tagging the security guards from the Miracle City Museum. (in serious tone) If worse comes to worse, we have to use "it"." said Puma Loco

"We agreed to never use "it" again; we even agreed to never speak of "it" again." said Lady Gobbler

"We may have to use "it" if it means stopping the Bravo Family, or any members of the Bravo Family, from taking Miracle City." said Puma Loco


Puma Loco left the Broken Sombrero in order to meet up with Manny in order to steal the new art from the Miracle City Museum. As he is walking through an ally, he could tell someone is following him."

"You can come out Sartana; I know you're following me. It's impossible to sneak up on me." said Puma Loco

"I wasn't trying to sneak up on you; you know me better than that." said Sartana coming out of the shadows

"So, are you here to take me away?" said Puma Loco laughing at her

"I'm not the grim reaper; that's my brother's position and it's really boring. However, I can tell when people are about to die. You don't have much time Puma. I would say that you have two more years at best; the same goes for Don Baffi who has only two years left too." said Sartana

"What about Lady Gobbler?" Puma Loco asked

"I say about 10 more years." said Sartana

"That's unfair; she gets to live longer than I do." said Puma Loco

"You know you could always use the "life points" that you earned from me over the years; you have a lot of them in stock." said Sartana showing him some balls of light coming from her guitar

"I might use them later, but most of them are going to Manny, Rodolfo, and Maria." said Puma Loco

"Why them and not yourself, Puma?" Sartana asked him

"Maria is Manny's mother and she should have as much time as possible to be with her son, Rodolfo is my son and a father always wants his son to outlast him no matter what side he is on, and Manny is my grandson and the legacy of evil I plan to leave behind after I pass away." said Puma Loco

"So, he's chosen the path of villainy?" Sartana asked

"I don't know yet; he's still undecided. However, he's been able to taken in all the knowledge and skill that I couldn't teach Rodolfo. My evil, within another form, will live on. Besides, I'm sure Django doesn't really care as long as he gets to fight El Tigre." said Puma Loco

"True! He's been itching for a fight against El Tigre again but he's been waiting for the right time to do so and he's been recently ungrounded after destroying my guitar during the tournament. He still has a lot to learn if he ever wants to take over my evil empire; I would give him 454 years before he is ready." said Sartana thinking about Django possibly taking over her empire

"I would love to stay and chat, but I have a museum to rob with my grandson." said Puma Loco leaving

As Grandpapi is leaving, using his Golden Sombrero of Chaos to fly away, Sartana started to feel some pain in the area where her heart would normally be if she were living. She also noticed her mystic guitar is turning rotten. She then said to herself: It can't be; someone has found my heart.


In an apartment complex somewhere in Miracle City, a man with light brown skin, muscular body tone, brown eyes, and black hair in a pompadour style, is putting on a white dress shirt, green suit and dress pants, and brown dress shoes. He then walks up grabbing a box and opening it; this box contains Sartana's heart. He said to himself: I could use this to my advantage later on; but keeping Sartana at bay will do just fine. Just then, Don Baffi and his goons arrived in this man's room.

"Are you Sebastian Bravo?" said Don Baffi

"Yes, yes I am! Can I help you with something?" said Sebastian walking up to Don Baffi

"We hear you're going to clean up Miracle City with your own hands; I'm just here to give you some advice on your campaign while my boys break your legs."said Don Baffi snapping his fingers in order to have his men surround Sebastian

"I see! That's a very interesting proposal, but I don't think I need your advice. I know you came here thinking you can intimidate me from running for municipal president, but I don't intend to stop. However, I do think your boys or going to restrain you for a while." said Sebastian as his eyes start to turn green and he looks at each of Don Baffi's men

"What the? What are you guys doing?" said Don Baffi as he is getting restrained by his own men

"We don't know boss." said one of Don Baffi's goons

"We can't help it." said another one of Don Baffi's goons

"They are under my command right now. I just need to borrow your men for something important and then you'll get arrested by the cops; they are on their way. However, I need to make sure I can show the people of Miracle City that I'm not afraid of you." said Sebastian grabbing a razor and shaving cream bottle


At the Rivera house, Grandpapi and Manny are looking over the art that they stole from the Miracle City Museum. However, Grandpapi had Manny hide what they stole from the Museum in Manny's room from Rodolfo since he just got back from work. Rodolfo asked what Grandpapi did today and he responded by telling him that he was seeing some old acquaintances of his; Rodolfo didn't inquire to this since he needed to make dinner. Grandpapi then turned on the tv and turned to the news network. He then looked in shock that Don Baffi and his goons getting arrested but with his entire mustache gone; it was completely shaved off.

Elsewhere, Lady Gobbler and General Chapuza are watching this happen too, much to their shock. They also notice how dead inside Don Baffi is from this experience. They all turned up the volume on their T.V.s in order to hear what Sebastian Bravo is about to say to the public.

This attack against me only proves that the supervillains here are afraid of what I will do once I get into office. If they think they can intimidate me, then they are wrong. I'm not afraid of these criminals! Miracle City, despite the brave efforts of its heroes, has been a spicy cesspool of crime and villainy. However, I've heard it used to be a place where hopes and dreams can come true. My hope and dream is to see this city cleaned up and free of crime. To all you supervillains, your time will be coming.

According to the canon future, Puma Loco/Grandpapi was supposed to either die or move to a retirement home outside of Miracle City; if I had to choose between these two possibilities it's more likely that Grandpapi would die then just move away. His development is revolving around him using the last few years or year doing what he can to keep his legacy of evil alive within Manny and a bit of Rodolfo; you'll find out what I mean in later chapters.


In a nearby guitar store, Maria is getting her guitar back from being fixed after it broke a few days ago. As she is getting her guitar, she is thinking about what her brother told her on the phone about Rodolfo being targeted by her sister 13 days from now. While she is certain that Rodolfo can take care of himself, she is more concerned about how he may be unable to fight against her sister since it won't be an easy fight. She wants to tell him about it, but she doesn't want him to know about her relationship to the Bravo family. Maria may only look at Rodolfo as a friend most of the time, but she still has some feelings for him. When she is about to leave the store, she notices Rodolfo carrying a lot of stuff with him and Alice is right behind him. While she doesn't think that her and Rodolfo are romantically involved(right now), she does want to check on him to make sure he's ok and to slightly keep tabs on him just in case her sister is watching him.


Back with Rodolfo and Alice, they are about to head down into the Old Miracle City together to take a closer look at that robotic Basilisk that she and Toshiro fought the other day.

"So, what are we supposed to be looking at with this robot you fought the other day?" Rodolfo asked while carrying a lot of suitcases and bags

"I want to know who made it or where it came from. I have pretty good idea who made it or where it came from, but I want to be sure before we make any moves against them. All that stuff you're carrying is going to help us analyze that thing, while at the same time it's going to provide us some food for the next few hours while we're down here." Alice explained

"We're really going to be down there that long?" Rodolfo wondered

"Unless we can finish things up quickly enough, yes. If you're worried about any villains making a move, then don't worry; I think most of them are brainstorming about what to do now that some changes are coming to Miracle City." said Alice

"What do you mean?" Rodolfo asked

"Apart from me showing up and taking residents in Miracle City, they're all looking out for this Sebastian Bravo character running for Municipal President. They think he might have a chance of really cleaning up Miracle City with the policies that he hopes to implement once he's in office. Those plans that he has might involve us and the police force, but I don't know for certain. Once I get more info from my sources, I'll let you know." said Alice

"I wish Manny didn't go off to hang out with Frida so he could help us; but it's strange that he didn't show up for breakfast this morning." said Rodolfo

"He's not hanging out with Frida today; he's helping another friend of his out with something else. If you must know how I know that, I've been keeping track of him myself after the N.D.S.O took him, Toshiro, and Black Cuervo; also, I don't want to lose my candidate to them so easily. Besides…(with a slightly flirty and cute look on her face) I thought this could give us some time to reconnect as friends or even as a former couple. Don't you want to spend some time with me alone?" said Alice getting really close to Rodolfo

"Alice…..I just….you see. Wait, are you just messing me?" said Rodolfo reacting to her advances and blushing a bit until he realizes she is playing

"Yes! I thought it would be fun after such a long time. Now come on, let's head down there." said Alice laughing at him a bit

With that said, Rodolfo and Alice went down into the old Miracle City. Maria decided to follow them, to make sure that Rodolfo is safe, "not" out of jealousy after seeing Alice flirt with Rodolfo (even though her flirting was used to mess with him)


Down in the old Miracle City, Alice and Rodolfo walked toward the location of the giant basilisk that she and Cyber Sumo fought. Once they arrived, they went inside the huge beast and began dismantling it based off a list pieces Alice wanted to find. Rodolfo brought out all the pieces that he could find for Alice while she began inspecting them. While she's working, she thought she heard something and contacted Rodolfo via telepathy and told him to come and help her restrain the intruder. While Rodolfo took the direct approach, Alice decided to sneak up from behind the intruder. As Rodolfo is about to see who the intruder is, he got hit with a guitar in the head; the person who hit him was Maria.

"Maria!? What are you doing here?" Rodolfo asked her

"I was…." said Maria before being jumped from behind by Alice and restrained

"Alice, wait!? It's Maria." said Rodolfo

"Can you prove that it's here? I've dealt with shapeshifters before so for all we know this might not be Maria." Alice asked

"I am Maria, you self-centered, mind invader." Maria shouted at Alice

"Insults like that don't help you." said Alice looking at her menacingly

"Alice, I know it's Maria. I know because there is one thing that can distinguish her from a shapeshifter that only I know." said Rodolfo getting close to Alice and possibly prepared to fight her to save Maria

"I see, so that's how you would know. Ok! Now that we know it's not really an intruder, I can get back to looking at the parts; let me know when you're done babysitting her so you can help me with this stuff." said Alice using her powers to read Rodolfo's mind on the distinguishing factor and releasing Maria in order to get back to work

"Are you alright?" said Rodolfo running to check on her

"I'm fine, but what are you two doing down here?" Maria sked

"Alice needed help dismantling a robot that was guarding the Seventh Samurai down here." said Rodolfo

"For what purpose would dismantling a giant robot for her?" Maria sked

"Not that it's any of your business, but I think I know where this thing came from but I need to make sure before I act on my hunch. Besides, why are you down here?" Alice shouted while looking through the giant basilisk

"I wanted to see if there were any old books down here in hopes of restoring them for all the students for the next term." said Maria

"Sure, if that's what helps you sleep at night. (to Rodolfo) Can you come here for a second? There's a part that I can't lift out." said Alice seeing through her lie and calling out to Rodolfo

"Sure thing Alice! (to Maria) If you want, we can help you find the books you're looking for." said Rodolfo

"No I won't" said Alice

"I'll help you!" said Rodolfo giving a slightly romantic look his face

"It's fine! I couldn't find anything that wasn't already destroyed or expired. " said Maria

"Except this one that I found." said Alice holding up a huge silver book

"What!? Let me see that!" said Maria

"Sure….for $200 dollars." said Alice

"What!?" Maria shouted in anger

"Hey, that's a good asking price especially for me; this book probably cost up to $10,000 so I'm giving you a great deal. Besides, I don't think $200 is a lot of money for someone who's made a lot of money playing horrible music." said Alice

"What did you just say?" said Maria having a more angry look on her face

"Horrible music! I've listened to mariachi music and I honestly think it's terrible." said Alice

"Why you rotten, arrogant….." said Maria running over to punch Alice but is then stopped by Alice's left hand

"Let me guess, extreme pain." said Alice looking at Maria's face

After Maria screamed in a lot of pain for almost 30 minutes, Rodolfo started to bandage up her hand after putting some ice on it to stop the swelling.

" I know it doesn't mean anything to you, but I am sorry about that. And for the record, I was talking about mariachi music in general; I haven't even listened to your songs in the first place."

"Sure you didn't!" said Maria in anger and not believing a word Alice says

"If it makes you feel better, I'll give you the book for free now since I didn't mean to damage your hand like that with my experimental diamond arm." said Alice giving her the silver book

"Alice, when did you get a diamond arm; I thought you only had a plastic arm" Rodolfo asked while finishing up bandaging Maria and later removing a huge device out of the basilisk that Alice wanted

"I got it a few months ago from Armin; it's his latest invention. He says I can do a lot more with it but I'm taking it slow for now." said Alice

"How is Armin?" Rodolfo asked

"Fine; he's still cooped up in his lab but he's ok. His son is going to be participating in the selection trials for the Jack of Spades position like Manny is; he's been selected by the King of Diamonds, Mr. 10. (noticing Rodolfo and Maria's perplexed faces) That's right, you don't know him." said Alice

"So, why did you want this device removed from that robot anyway?" Rodolfo asked

"I wanted to see if this was the same type of robot that comes from the Land of Giant Robots. However, some of the parts I was looking for are gone and replaced with different parts or added extra pieces; they were gone long before me and Toshiro fought this thing. " said Alice

"What pieces were missing?" Rodolfo asked

"The regenerative A.I chip and heart. I can tell that those pieces are missing and they were replaced with stuff you can see from a regular robot that is designed to fail after falling once and I managed to take out the chip and you were able to take out the heart so easily. You also need to take into account that these pieces aren't easy to find; if they were easy to find then taking down a giant robot like Giant Robot Sanchez would be a cakewalk for anyone. As for how they brought this thing down here, I don't know; either someone with the ability to shrink things, phase things

through solid matter, or teleport things could have brought our robot friend down here." Alice explained

"How would you know about this but no one else would know?" Maria asked

"Because London has a similar robot that is exactly like Giant Robot Sanchez; we call him Giant Robot Union Jack. I fought him a couple of times and after defeating him one final time I was able to learn more about him and where he came from. Also, I paid one of the scientist that work in England's government to tell me what I wanted to know. I've been able to confirm my suspicions" said Alice

"So we're done here." said Rodolfo

"Yep! I thought this was going to take us hours but it turns out it didn't." said Alice opening up suit case that has a mini black hole in it and sucking up all her stuff and the parts from the basilisk

"Wait, that stuff could fit in that one suitcase the whole time." said Rodolfo with a surprised look on his face

"Yes, but I wasn't sure it was going to work since it's a new invention that involves a mini black hole that Armin is working on." said Alice

"That's impossible; you can't create such a device without it being unstable." said Maria

"For someone like Armin, it is possible. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to head back up to the surface now that I've wrapped things up here. You two can stay and look for more old books all you like but I'm going back to the surface. But before I forget, can you give this Manny when you see him." said Alice walking up to a huge green portal appearing in front of her but not before walking up to Rodolfo and giving him a letter

"What is it?" Rodolfo asked

"It's a letter with instructions that are only meant for him and if you or anyone else tries to open it then something bad will happen. While I gave him a card to enter the event and act as my candidate, this is a little something he and the other candidates can do to earn some extra points in the selection process." said Alice

"What are these extra points?" Maria asked

"That's none of your concern." said Alice walking up to the portal again

"Hey Mind Ghost!" said a guy with a red oval shaped mask with a mixture of blue around the eyes, green around the mouth and an orange star on the head

"Hello Francis!" said Alice

"I'm The Shaman King!" said Francis

"I know; I just like saying your real name! So is it time for the meeting already?" said Alice

"Yeah!" said Francis

"Alright then! (to Rodolfo) And don't worry about things Rodolfo; Miracle City will be in good hand while you're gone." said Alice before going through the portal

"What did she mean by that?" Maria asked

"I was going to call you about this, but I'll be out of town for a few days and I was hoping that you could watch Manny while I'm away." said Rodolfo

"Why are you going out of town?" Maria asked

"My boss wants me to go with him to a meeting as a bodyguard since he doesn't want anyone stealing something he plans on showing to a group of benefactors. I'll be leaving in thirteen days." said Rodolfo

"You don't say! So, Alice will be defending Miracle City while you're away?" said Maria

"Yes! Maria, I know Alice; she's a good person once you get to know her." said Rodolfo

"Really, I hadn't noticed! I don't like the idea of someone like her trying to recruit Manny to her team. You said you two used to be friends but she doesn't act like one." said Maria showing her hand to him

" I don't she meant to use her diamond arm on you on purpose. There is more to Alice than you think. I know she can be a bit mean and sometimes snobby, but I trust her enough to know that she wouldn't put Manny in harm's way; she actually has a soft spot for children too. My point is she can be trusted; I trust her almost as much as I trust you." said Rodolfo

"I'll hold you to that. At least I kept this book away from her before she could sell it." said Maria

"I only gave it to you so your lie seemed real. Don't say anything, just listen. I know you only came down here because you were trying to keep him safe from a possible hit woman coming after him. I won't say anything to Rodolfo in large part because I think he can handle some low level assassin but also because you should have the guts to tell him about your family yourself. You also came down there because you got a little jealous when you saw me fake flirt with him too; for someone who only sees him as friend, you must really love him that much." said Alice contacting Maria via telepathy thanks to a small portal that Francis opened for her in order to talk to Maria

"And you needed your powers of intrusion to figure that out." said Maria in anger with her mind

"The part about the assassin being your sister, not why you were down here; I don't need my powers to figure everything out for me. You want to know why I'm not telling Rodolfo who you really are: because he still loves you despite breaking his heart." said Alice

"Why do you care?" Maria asked

"In short, he's my friend and I care about what happens to him. He's more a hero and a person than I am or ever will be, so at the end of the day I want to at least see that he's happy once he's able to retire. I care about him as if he was the little brother I almost wish I had. Since I care, I don't want to see him get his heartbroken, again, by someone, from my perspective, who doesn't deserve him."

"Don't act like you understand me! You don't know what it's like to have seen someone you love get hurt so many times for a fight that almost has no end in sight and think you could possibly lose him. I couldn't stand the thought of losing him, especially after what happened with El Mal Verde; if not him, the one of the other villains of Miracle City." said Maria

"I know about El Mal Verde; because of him, a lot of heroes don't bother trying to defend Miracle City anymore for fear of their lives. However, he is just one of the many dangerous world ending threats that can appear at any time no matter we do; avoiding him is like trying to avoid a natural disaster. The only reason I couldn't fight him because my powers wouldn't work on him and I'm not as strong as Rodolfo."

"What is your point in talking to me about this?" Maria asked

"I don't have a lot of time to explain it to you so I'll leave you with this: You want to protect your "current" family from your "old" family but I don't see that happening the way you are now; if anything, you'll only hurt your "current" family." said Alice

"Maria! Maria! MARIA!" said Rodolfo trying to get her attention

"What!? Sorry!" Maria shouted but then realized what she was doing

"Is everything alright?" Rodolfo asked with a concerned look on his face

"Yes! My mind just went somewhere else. So, you want me to take care of Manny while you're away to make sure he and Grandpapi don't do anything bad. Great! I have to go now. I have to take this guitar and get it repaired, again. Bye!" said Maria running off


(Somewhere in a dark corridor in an unknown location)

"Do you hate that woman for some reason?" Francis asked Alice

"More like I pity her. She had so much potential but wasted it. It's not even the idea that she gave up being a superhero that bothers me; what bothers me is she's this weak. She's basically what I could have become." said Alice

"What are you going to do about it?" Francis asked

"Nothing! I can't help her unless she is willing to want my help and she has to be willing to see my help to the end. I promised Abigail that I would watch over whoever inherited her glove and I failed at that because of some stuff I had to deal with at home along with my broken heart. Right now, I'm not capable of helping Maria." said Alice

"White Pantera could help her if you tell him the secrets of the glove." Francis pointed out

"Even if I did that, he couldn't do anything for her. Also, I burdened his mind something else that he should be thinking about." said Alice


(Flashback)

Rodolfo arrived at Alice's house to see how the Seventh Samurai is doing. Alice told him that he's fine but she's having some of her personal doctors run a few more test just to make sure that there aren't any poisons that they didn't notice while saving him the other night. Before him and Rodolfo could get further acquainted, Alice pulled him aside and told him that they are going to go inspect that giant basilisk. She then had him carry a lot of stuff that is meant for their trip to the old Miracle City. Before they left, Ronald took the familiars that Rodolfo collected for Alice and took him to a special room. Once that was taken care of, Rodolfo and Alice started to walk to the entrance of old Miracle City. While they are walking, Alice began to talk to Rodolfo as they are walking.

"So Rodolfo, you're ok with me trying to recruit Manny into my team?" Alice asked

"Of course! While I don't agree with you on charging people for your heroics, I do know that you what it means to be a hero and you can be a good influence on Manny in your own way." said Rodolfo with an optimistic tone

"We'll see. There's no guarantee that he'll make cut nor do I think I can truly convince him to be a hero. If couldn't completely convince him by now, then I don't know if I can; I'm not Abigail." said Alice

"I wasn't thinking you were." said Rodolfo

"I know, but I do know you've been trying to convince Manny to be a hero using your own methods along with what Abigail taught you." said Alice

"It's one of the few ways I try to honor her." said Rodolfo

"I know! However, Manny is in a very different situation than what you were in when Abigail and I first met you. Even if she was still around, I bet she would have trouble convincing Manny to be a hero." Alice pointed out

"What do you mean by that?" Rodolfo asked

"All I can say is he wasn't in doubt like you were when we first met you. He could go either way from being a hero or villain at some point; he could become one at some point but then later the other. I know he's your son and you want him to somehow follow in your footsteps as a hero like you in some capacity, but I wouldn't expect it. I'm asking this of you as a friend Rodolfo: Don't let your relationship with Manny become like the Captain Lion and Wild Boar." said Alice

"What do you mean by that?" Rodolfo asked

"I would say look it up, but I can tell you some other time; I prefer that you look it up." said Alice


(Present time)

"You'll have to tell them about the glove's secrets at some point. Freya and the Smashozones are going to arrive in Miracle City and take that glove from her." Francis pointed out

"I know; Rodolfo has been informed about that and I'm sure he'll protect her. I might as well help too since….." said Alice

"Since if they take the glove and sever the tie she has with it, the resulting sever will kill Maria." said Francis

"The original Black Cuervo! The very first supervillain in our family. She was known for being Miracle City's greatest thief and acrobat. She was, in a way, just like you." said Lady Gobbler showing a picture of the original Black Cuervo that almost looks like Zoe but older

"Am I seriously going to grow up to look like her?" Black Cuervo asked

"Can you get to the point mother?" said Shadow Falcon

"You can't call me that anymore, but I'm flattered; Carmelita rarely ever calls me that anymore." said Lady Gobbler a little embarrassed from hearing Shadow Falcon call her that

"Grandmami!" said Black Cuervo getting her Grandmami to focus

"Oh, alright! The original Black Cuervo was so good, that she began to take on many risk in her crimes, including stealing from the Bravo Family." said Lady Gobbler

"Who's the Bravo Family?" Black Cuervo asked

"Other than the Rivera family, they are our worst enemy. One of their children, who had a mystical item that can curse anyone, placed a curse on our entire family after she stole a wedding ring from that was supposed to go to her during her wedding; she also stole her husband too. As a result, she cursed our entire family from ever remaining with our true loves for long the moment we meet our first loves and they break our hearts completely" Lady Gobbler explained

"What does that mean?" said Black Cuervo

"As long as that cursed charm is around, anyone you fall in love with or falls in love with you will eventually leave you in the end the moment your first love breaks your heart completely. The cursed charm has been affecting the Aves family for a long time now." said Shadow Falcon

"If that's the case, then why hasn't anyone in our family done something about it?" Black Cuervo asked

"The Bravo Family isn't like any enemy we have ;if they strike at us, they will strike at us hard enough to completely wipe us out. I learned that the hard way in my youth when I tried breaking our family's curse. (to Antonio/Shadow Falcon) Do you plan on breaking the curse too?" said Lady Gobbler

"Yeah! That was the original plan when I traveled to France after I heard about the Ruby Phoenix and its ability to end curses; I figured it could end the curse for Zoe if I couldn't find the one who's wielding the item that cursed the Aves family in the first place." said Shadow Falcon

"How come mom hasn't done anything?" Black Cuervo asked

"She believes that the curse has only one source to it." said Shadow Falcon


Outside, Voltura and El Tigre are still fighting it out. Voltura keeps trying to blast El Tigre with her laser weapons but he manages to avoid them. Every time he tries to get close to her, she manages to kick him away. Like Lady Gobbler and Shadow Falcon, she knows about the curse of the Aves family too; however, she thinks the real source behind the curse really comes from the Rivera family (specifically the Rivera men as a whole). Each of the Aves family woman at some point in their lives has fallen for a Rivera man and eventually had their hearts broken as a result. Voltura has always hated the fact that her daughter would like El Tigre since he is a Rivera. Even if her daughter is still young and doesn't really know what true love is at her age, she still wants to protect her from getting hurt by El Tigre. Like her mother, they both share a hatred for El Tigre and the Rivera family but Voltura has a higher extreme of hatred in comparison.

"What is your game, El Tigre? Are you trying to break my daughter's heart again with this?" Voltura shouted at El Tigre and still shooting at El Tigre

"She asked me to me break her dad out so I did." said El Tigre dodging the blast and using his chain claws to retaliate

"Why!? What are you up to?" said Voltura flying towards him and grabbing him by the neck

"Nothing!" said El Tigre

"I doubt that; you Rivera men are always up to something. You're all nothing but trouble. I won't stand by and watch you hurt my daughter again. Once you're out of the way, she'll become a true supervillain." said Voltura

"She's already a true supervillain; she's more of a villain than you are or ever will be." said El Tigre kicking her away from him

Before Voltura could fire at El Tigre again, Black Cuervo appeared between the two of them.


(Flashback)

"She thinks getting rid of El Tigre will break the curse; it won't." said Shadow Falcon

"Even if she got rid of him preemptively, it wouldn't stop the curse; believe me, I tried that when she dated White Pantera." said Lady Gobbler

"So the only way to break the curse is to find the object that cursed our family and destroy it." said Black Cuervo

"Yes, but finding it will be a challenge and messing with the Bravo Family is risky." said Shadow Falcon

"Fine! Let's find a way to break the curse. If it's going to be some type of challenge other than something Miracle City can offer me then let's do it." said Black Cuervo

"Alright then! What about El Tigre?" said Shadow Falcon

"Can you make a hammer out of shadows? I need to say something to mom and him; you should hear it too Grandmami." said Black Cuervo as they all headed out of the hideout


Back in the present day, Black Cuervo got between El Tigre and Voltura. She then fired her laser at her mother and shot her laser and her mother to the ground. The suddenly, Voltura's own shadow restrained her and he restrained El Tigre too.

"Young Lady! What are you doing?" said

"Make sure you don't destroy El Tigre…...since I may want to do that at some point. Regardless of how I feel about him overall, if anyone will ever destroy El Tigre it will be me. Not you, not grandmami, not dad, and not any villain in Miracle City; Me! (pointing her laser at El Tigre) But since he did help me break dad out and learn something new, I won't destroy him today." said Black Cuervo

"Well, you heard her honey." said Shadow Flacon

"Shadow Falcon!" said Voltura in anger

"Me and Zoe are going to spend some quality time together; I hope you don't mind." said Shadow Falcon getting close to Voltura's face

"(Spitting at him in the face) Don't you dare touch me!"

"Ouch! (to Zoe) We better go before your mother gets any angrier." said Shadow Falcon

"One more thing!" said Black Cuervo

Black Cuervo whispered something in El Tigre's ear. After she did that, she gave him a kiss on the mouth, which caught the surprise/anger of Voltura but an intrigued snicker from Shadow Falcon. While El Tigre got caught up by the kiss, he noticed that she was carrying a hammer made of shadows in her hand and she hit him on the head.


When Manny woke up, he found himself in his room and Grandpapi sitting beside his bed.

"Manny! I'm glad you are awake my grandson." said Grandpapi

"What happened? Oh right, Black Cuervo kissed me…..and hit me on the head with a hammer." said El Tigre coming to

"Aves women, what are you going to do?" said Grandpapi laughing a bit

"How did I get back here?" said El Tigre

"Shadow Falcon and Black Cuervo brought you back here; they even brought my car back to me. I'm so glad that you released him, but it's a shame he won't be in Miracle City since he and Black Cuervo left a few hours ago." said Grandpapi

"Where did he and Black Cuervo go?" said El Tigre


On a rooftop in a huge city, presumably New York, Black Cuervo and Shadow Falcon are overlooking what appears to be a huge Diamond Store.

"I only broke into this place once and that was a long time ago; it looks like they've upped security here. This should be a challenge worthy enough for you." said Shadow Falcon

"Excellent!" said Black Cuervo looking at the huge Diamond store

"I'll be standing over there if you need help; I'm going to see if any of my old contacts are still around so we can find the member of the Bravo Family that has the item that cursed the entire Aves family. If you don't mind me asking, what did you whisper to El Tigre." said Shadow Falcon

"That's my secret." said Black Cuervo refusing to tell her father

Black Cuervo jumped off the roof of the building and activated her jetpack. As she is flying toward the Diamond store, she remembers what she told El Tigre before kissing him.

While we may be enemies most of the time, we're friends outside of all this. I'll call you. However, I'm taking this from you.


In case you are wondering, I am pushing for a MannyxZoe relationship in this story, especially since I prefer these two together rather than him and Frida; a future chapter will explain why. I might play with MannyxFrida but it won't really go anywhere here, especially since this story is going to take place within the span of the summer vacation that they are on all the way to their 8th grade graduation; from what I've seen in previous episodes, I can assume they were in 7th grade at the time regardless if certain episodes aired at a certain amount of time. I'm not going into their High School years since I don't find it necessary to go into for this story and I don't want to bother with a time skip here.

As for Black Cuervo, her development is going to focus on breaking her family's curse and finding new purpose in being supervillain by spending some time with her father and learning from him.


As El Tigre and Black Cuervo are getting out of the garbage truck, they go into a nearby corner in order not to be seen. They both noticed a guard coming by, called him over, knocked him out, and took his clothes in order to disguise themselves has him; lucky for them that the guard uniform has a helmet that can cover their faces.

"So, how are we going to find your father in this place?" El Tigre asked

"I don't know! " said Black Cuervo

"Hey, you! Come on!" said a guard calling them over

"Might as well follow him. (to the guard) Where are we going?" El Tigre asked in a deep voice

"To restrain Shadow Falcon; he's regaining his memories." said the guard

"I heard he said the word "Zoe" again." said another guard

"Doesn't he always say that every time he regains his memories." said a third guard

"Who is Zoe?" said the second guard

"From what I've heard, he's talking about his daughter, Zoe Aves ( also known as Black Cuervo). She's part of the Flock of Fury/Aves Family in Miracle City." said the first guard

"They've know about my family the whole time." whispered Black Cuervo surprised after hearing this

"I guess that explains how they knew about you when they took us for that mission in Eternal Land." whispered El Tigre

"Get ready everyone; we have to be ready to blast this guy on sight when he resist." said the first guard

They all walked into an all-white room where Shadow Falcon is being restrained with a straight jacket. Just then, a few doctors carrying some needles filled with some blue liquid and a hypnosis wheel. One of the doctors told Shadow Falcon to be ready to be returned back to "normal". Before the doctors did anything, they both got out of their disguise and attacked the guards. El Tigre would use his claws to slash at the weapons and Black Cuervo used her lasers on the guards. Once all the guards were down, El Tigre used his claws to break the straight jacket off of Shadow Falcon.

Are you Shadow Falcon?" Black Cuervo asked

"Yeah! Who are you?" said Shadow Falcon trying to get himself together

"I am known as Black Cuervo; I'm Voltura's daughter…...your daughter." said Black Cuervo

"Zoe! I thought I would never see you again. You've grown beautifully, my daughter." said Shadow Falcon

"Hate to break up the happy reunion, but we've got a problem." said El Tigre noticing more guards coming after a silent alarm has been set off

"Right! Let's…(groans in pain) I still haven't fully recovered yet. I can feed off these guys but it won't be enough and I need to get my stuff. Take as many of these guys out and follow me; I need to get a few things before we break out." said Shadow Falcon trying to stand up straight and puts out his hand in front of the guards in order to steal their shadows

"What exactly are we getting?" Black Cuervo asked while shooting at the guards

"My suit of course; I'm not going to leave it in their hands any more than I already have. I just hope they haven't tampered with it." said Shadow Falcon

"Why do you need it?" El Tigre asked

"It has something that's going to help us escape from here in an instant." said Shadow Falcon

"Do you even know where you're going?" El Tigre asked

"Yep! They only suppress our memories of our time as supervillains; they don't just take them away. When I first arrived here, I remember seeing them take my suit away into a certain room….(arriving at the room) and that is it. It's locked; the door is bolted shut." said Shadow Falcon

"Not for long." said Black Cuervo about to blast the door down with her laser

"Your laser won't work on that and neither will your claws, Rivera. Allow me to handle this; I've absorbed enough shadows from those guys to at least break into this place." said Shadow Falcon stopping Black Cuervo and El Tigre from trying

Just then, Shadow Falcon's shadow covered his entire body and he simply went under the door. El Tigre and Black Cuervo waited for him to come out. Just then, some more guards surrounded them and were ready to fire. Until, Shadow Falcon came out of the room with a black and silver battle suit that has seven vials on it and an emblem that has a falcon head on it. He then pointed his gauntlets at the guards and taking all of their shadows. He then pressed the emblem on his chest and the whole hall began to get covered in darkness; not just the hall but the entire prison itself.


In Puma Loco's car, Voltura is driving as fast as possible in order to catch up Black Cuervo and El Tigre; Lady Gobbler, still a turkey, is sitting in the back of the car. As she is driving, she notices a giant falcon made up of shadows in the sky; she knew it was him.

"Looks like we're too late to stop her." said Lady Gobbler

"I know where they're going." said Voltura

"What are you going to do when you see him?" Lady Gobbler asked

"What do you think!" Voltura shouted

"He may tell Zoe about the curse." said Lady Gobbler to Voltura despite ignoring her words


The Falcon made of Shadows that Shadow Falcon created continued to fly in the sky. As it's flying, it began to drop a lot of people off down on the ground. After flying for some time, the falcon began to disappear and Shadow Falcon and El Tigre began to fall out of the air; Black Cuervo had her jetpack so she didn't fall.

"That hurt! What happened?" said El Tigre getting up from the ground

"My shadow gauge on my suit is almost empty; that can happen when you cover an entire facility like that and break out every supervillain and superhero in there." said Shadow Falcon

"Why did you break out all the superheroes too?" Black Cuervo asked

"Cause no one, no matter what side they are on, deserves to be locked up by those N.D.S.O freaks. Besides, they can act as bait while we get to my safe house. Follow me (to Black Cuervo)

So, how old are you now Zoe?" said Shadow Falcon

"13!" Black Cuervo answered

"So, I've been gone for 10 years now. Curse the N.D.S.O.!" said Shadow Falcon in anger

"How did you get captured?" El Tigre asked

"They captured me in France while I was trying to steal the very rare Ruby Phoenix; I don't know how, but they knew about my plans to steal it. We're here! (He presses on the mountain, a door appears, a matt with a key under it shows up, and he opens the door. He stops El Tigre) I want to talk to my daughter alone, Rivera; you keep watch." said Shadow Falcon

"For the NDSO?" said El Tigre

"No, her mother. I want to talk to my daughter for as long as I can. I'm sure you, given the fact that you're White Pantera's son, can hold off Voltura long enough for me to talk Zoe." said Shadow Falcon

"I'm surprised that you….." said El Tigre before getting interrupted

"I've got nothing against you or your family, Rivera. While I don't care about your grandfather that much, I do see your father as a rival of sorts. If anything, I want to crush him, not you, if I ever really felt like it. Just keep Carmelita away from us for a while and I'll make it worth your wild." said Shadow Falcon

Shadow Falcon and Black Cuervo headed into the safe house. The place is filled with monitors, a huge table, and weapons. Black Cuervo then noticed a picture of her as a baby with both her mother and father.

"Maybe one day, we can update that picture." said Shadow Flacon placing his hand on Black Cuervo's helmet.

"What happened between you and mom?" Black Cuervo asked

"A lot of things! For one thing, I wanted to move from Miracle City since there were too many villains there at the time. I wanted us to be a family of villains that would have our names known throughout wherever we moved to. I especially wanted a challenge that Miracle City was no longer bringing anymore with the number of villains there." Shadow Falcon explained

"Did it also feel boring because it no longer felt like a challenge to rob anything in Miracle City?" said Black Cuervo

"Yep! It's one thing to rob a place, but it gets better when you have the thrill of being chased and being the only villain that they focus on chasing. I was afraid that you would feel this way if we stayed in Miracle City once you got older; but your mother didn't believe that because of her "clouded judgement"" said Shadow Falcon

"What do you mean "clouded judgement"?" Black Cuervo asked

"I may not have the right to ask you this and you can refuse to tell me if you want to, but I need to know something: Are you in love with that Rivera boy?" Shadow Falcon asked


Outside the hideout, El Tigre is just sitting down and waiting for Black Cuervo to come out. While he's waiting, he noticed his Grandpapi's car. At first he thought it was his Grandpapi, but the car stopped and Voltura and Lady Gobbler came out of it.

"Where are they?" Voltura shouted in anger

"In there; they're talking right now. What are you doing in my Grandpapi's car; how did you steal it from him?" said El Tigre getting ready to fight

"We borrowed it!" said Lady Gobbler

"Hahahahahahahahahaha! What happened to you?" said El Tigre laughing at Lady Gobbler

"I don't want to talk about it. What are they talking about?" said Lady Gobbler

"I don't know, but you can't interrupt them; I won't let you." said El Tigre

Voltura then brought out her laser and began to attack El Tigre. He would dodge the all the laser blast and figuring out a way to attack Voltura. Lady Gobbler couldn't do that much since she's just a turkey at the moment and can't use her staff or weapons to fight against El Tigre. However, she's wondering what Shadow Falcon is telling her granddaughter right now.


(Back inside)

"Why are you asking me that?" Black Cuervo shouted in anger

"Call it your father wanting to take interest in my daughter's life while at the same time making sure she's ok. Also, I can tell by the red on your face" said Shadow Falcon

"I'm surprised you don't hate the Rivera family too, especially Manny." said Black Cuervo

"Unlike your mother and grandmother, I'm not into the whole Vendetta things as much; I only take revenge on someone when it's absolutely necessary. However, I could say the same about you." said Shadow Falcon

"I hate him…..sometimes…...but not all the time; we're trying to be friends again when we're both not having to fight one another like we used to do." said Black Cuervo trying to hide the red in her face

"You have feelings for him." said Shadow Falcon slightly teasing her

"Maybe…..but he broke my heart one time for using me to get information about my family's crimes so he's not there yet." said Black Cuervo thinking about the events of Tigre + Cuervo Forever

"Did you by any chance use him for something too?" Shadow Falcon asked

"Yes; I used him to get back at my arch nemesis, Frida Suarez." said Black Cuervo thinking about the events of Enter the Cuervo

"So at the end of the day, you both used each other for one reason or another. You two would probably make a cute couple if it weren't for the Aves curse." said Shadow Falcon

"What curse!?" Black Cuervo asked

"You don't know about the Aves curse? I guess I'm not surprised that your mother or grandmother hasn't told you about it." said Shadow Falcon

"I saw no point in telling her." said Lady Gobbler walking in

"What happened to you, Pachita?" said Shadow Falcon laughing at Lady Gobbler

"She happened; I need the antidote from her and I wanted to talk to my granddaughter of course." said Lady Gobbler

"I gave that kid one thing to do and he blows it." said Shadow Falcon

"I won't be long Antonio. (to Black Cuervo/Zoe) You should go with him for now Zoe, especially if you want to learn more about being a villain that isn't always consumed with revenge." said Lady Gobbler

"I thought you came to get me back." said Black Cuervo

"That's your mother talking. I really came to wish you off since I figured you would want to spend some time with your father after learning about him. (to Antonio/Shadow Falcon) I also assume you may want to help her break the curse on my side of the family too." said Lady Gobbler

"What curse?" Black Cuervo demanded to know

"The Aves family curse: a curse that prevents us from ever being with the ones we love for too long. This curse was placed on our family a long time ago; it was placed on the original Black Cuervo." said Lady Gobbler


In a swampy area, El Tigre and Frida are fighting off a swamp monster. El Tigre has been trying to slash at it, but it keeps regenerating and shooting muck at him and Frida.

"This almost like dealing with Dr. Chipotle Jr's guacamole monster, without the guacamole." said El Tigre avoiding the spirit's blast spit

"I wouldn't think it best to compare this spirit to something from your dimension. While this isn't the king spirit of this dimension, this one is powerful and dangerous and not something you would simply make out of food." said Pyro

"What's this thing exactly made of?" Frida asked Pyro

"Polluted water, oil, dead plants, and other stuff." said Pyro

"Then all of it can simply be burned. Manny, I got an idea. Throw me into the spirit!" said Frida activating the fire in her guitar

"What!?" said Manny confused

"Just do it!" said Frida

Manny did what she said and threw her into the spirit's mouth. Once inside, Frida played her guitar and made the monster spirit burn up from the inside. Frida then came out of the monster and called Manny over to help finish things off. Manny punched the spirit and Frida hit it with her guitar on fire, thus defeating the spirit and collecting the crystal it left.


Back in their Miracle City, Manny and Frida are on the rooftop eating some burritos with Pyro.

"You've managed to improve at a fast rate Frida; even though these aren't the high level spirits that I promised, your power is starting to increase exponentially." said Pyro sitting on Frida's lap

"So how powerful are these other spirits that you keep talking about?" Frida asked

"Very powerful! I would say that they are just as powerful as that villain El Mal Verde but a little stronger. Once your power starts to increase Frida, you'll be powerful enough to defeat the mass amount of spirits that are coming to Miracle City all on your own. I've gotta go now; there's something I need to take care of." said Pyro as he gets up and leaves

"See you later Pyro!" said Manny and Frida

"So, what do you want to do tomorrow? I was thinking I test my powers on Zoe Aves." said Frida with a sinister look on her face

"She's not in Miracle City at the moment." said Manny

"How do you know that?" Frida asked with a worried-angry look on her face

"I uh….saw her leave with some family of hers the other day; she looked like she was….going somewhere in the mountains I guess." said Manny hiding what really happened to Zoe, especially the kiss her got from her

"Ok! We can try my powers out on something else tomorrow; maybe prank Chakal ." said Frida

"Sure, but can it be later in the afternoon? I'm actually going to start doing this list that my dad gave me from Mind Ghost." said Manny

"What's on the list?" Frida asked

"Some heroic jobs she says that I can do to prove myself to the Royal Suits and earn money at the same time." said Manny

"Awesome! I can't wait to do these things and earn money." said Frida with an excited look on her face

"Sorry, but I've gotta do these things on my own; I can't have any help." said Manny

"Oh, that's fine; I'll just watch from the sidelines. I gotta go!" said Frida noticing what time it is

After that, Manny and Frida went their separate ways. However, they didn't realize that they were both being watched by Alice/Mind Ghost. She decided to follow Frida home since she is the one that she needs to follow at the moment.


When Frida arrived at her house, she could hear laughing coming from the family room. At first she thought it was her family playing trivia games about law, but her father and sisters came in right behind her.

"Do you know who your mother is talking to?" said Chief Suarez

"I figured it was you guys." said Frida

"It seems you've all returned from your busy days today." said Alice sipping tea with Frida's mom

"Hey, your Ms. Grainger." said Frida

"You know her!?" said Chief Suarez

"She's the new guidance counselor at my school." said Frida

"She's also the new hero I've been hearing about who's been working with Pantera." Chief Suarez pointed out

"Yes, but I would prefer not to talk about my superhero lifestyle right now Chief Suarez; I'm here as a guidance counselor, not as Mind Ghost. (to Frida) I came here for you Frida." said Alice sipping her tea

"Why me!?" Frida asked

"Since I came in during the end of the school year, I never really got to know most of the students before they left for the summer vacation. I've been going door to door trying to get to know some of the students a bit more personally just so I know what I'm dealing with a bit." said Alice

"She wants to help guide you on your path to being an adult and preparing for high school Frida. Isn't that exciting?" said Carmela

"Sure!" said Frida sarcastically

"This is my home address; I just wanted to give this to you personally. (to Anita and Nikita) I also look forward to speaking with you two as well." said Alice giving them her business cards

"We don't go Frida's school." said Anita and Nikita

"I know, but your mother recommended it for you two" said Alice

"I thought both of you could also use some of her guidance as well, especially since your school's guidance counselor doesn't seem to be doing his job." said Carmela

"But mom, I already know what I want to do." said Frida

"We know what we want to do too." said Anita and Nikita

"True, but this could be good for the three of you and I expect you both to be there tomorrow." said Carmela

"Fine!" said all three girls

"Great! I look forward to seeing all three of you tomorrow. (to Frida via her telepathy, discreetly) Make sure you don't bring Pyro with you and bring your guitar with you." said Alice

"Why don't you stay for dinner Alice; I would like to talk to you more." said Carmela

"Alright!" said Alice


The next day, Frida, Anita and Nikita headed to Alice's home to begin their session with her. When they arrived, they noticed some other kids from Frida's school and the twin's school as well waiting at the gate of Alice's house. When the gates opened, everyone walked in and were greeted by Ronald at the door. He said: Each of you were given a number; if you are number one, then you will go first; I also prepared some cookies for all of you too. As luck would have it, Frida is number one so she gets to go first. When she entered the house, she was lead to an all green office with a couch, brown desk(where Alice is sitting at), green chair, and a window.

"I'm glad to see that you came." said Alice

"My mom didn't give me much choice, but at least my sisters have to go to this too." said Frida

"I would also like to add that I gave them the very last numbers for today so they'll be here longer than; I figured that you would like that." Alice said showing the list of people in order of who is next

"I do! But, you won't have me here for long; I already know what I want to be." said Frida sitting on the couch

"A Rock Star!" said Alice

"Yeah! I will be famous all over the world." Frida shouted and played her guitar

"So, you didn't wish to be famous immediately." said Alice

"No! I want to earn my fame with my own talent, not just make people like my music based on a wish." said Frida

"So what did you wish for?" Alice asked

"Why do you want to know?"

" While I did call you here to kind of talk about your future plans, I'm really trying to save you from Pyro; he's using you." said Alice sipping her tea

"How do you know?" Frida asked with an uncertain look on her face

"I've run into him before; you're not the only one he's made a contract with." said Alice

"You made a contract with him?" Frida asked

"No! He's an enemy of mine who's caused a lot of pain. He may offer you power now, but he has an ulterior motive." said Alice

"Do you know what that motive is?" Frida asked Alice still uncertain what she is talking about

"No! I don't know what he has planned for you right now, at least not enough proof to give you in order to believe me about it, but I can tell you that it's not good for you." Alice admitted

"Will it have any effect on my goal to be a rock star? Frida asked

"Technically no, but…." said Alice before getting interrupted

"Then I'll be fine. If anything, I can just burn Pyro with my powers and send him away." said Frida confidently

"Don't you mean have Manny come rescue you like he always does when you're in a helpless situation against Pyro." said Alice

"I don't want to be helpless anymore; I'm done with that. I have to be able to keep up with Manny." Frida shouted

Keep up with him? Did he tell you that you're slowing him down now?" Alice asked

"No, but I'm getting tired of always sitting on the sidelines most of the time. I help Manny with whatever most of the time, but I want to do more." said Frida

"But you lack the power to do so. While you already have plans for your future, you want to have power that you can call your own during the time that you have now." said Alice

"To be honest, and don't tell anyone about this, I was thinking of "borrowing" Manny's mom glove of power at one point. It's not like she's using it and I don't think I'm going to go crazy like she does." said Frida

"I won't tell anyone. However, you're better off not wanting that glove since it's connected to her right now; you deserve your own power." Alice giggled a bit

"That's why I can't give up this power; you can't make me." said Frida

"I wasn't going to make you; I was trying to convince you to give it up yourself and figure out what you wished for." said Alice

"I didn't tell you what I wished for." Frida stated confused

"You didn't have to tell me; I just figured it out." said Alice

"Dang!" Frida snapped her fingers in anger

"Frida, I'm one of the last of many people with power who should tell you that you should give up on the power you just recently obtained after being powerless. If you want to keep this power that Pyro gave you for right now, then fine; I won't try and force you to give it up. However, I need you to promise me that you won't fight anyone that has a familiar like you do." said Alice walking up to Frida and placing her hands on hers

"Ok! All he's asking me to do is fight off evil spirits from other dimensions; other than that, I use the powers for however I want." said Frida

"I see! Well, you better go; I'm sure you have other plans." said Alice

"Ok, bye! Wait! How come you didn't tell my mom or my dad about this?" Frida asked before leaving

"Like I said, I would rather you give up those powers on your own. At the same time, talking to your mother, seeing where you live, and eating with your family, I could tell that doing that would only end badly for you, especially your father. He would simply blame your friend Manny for the situation you're in." said Alice

"Yeah, he would! He hates Manny because "he's a bad influence" or "he will only bring you misery". This just him not being able to get over the accident that happened with Manny around the time he first started being El Tigre; it's a long story. I just want him to get over it already and accept that Manny is my friend." said Frida rolling her eyes

"Eventually, he'll have to get over it whether he likes it or not." said Alice

"Who knows!? I bet my grandma would understand. I'm going to go now." said Frida

"Alright! My door is always open if you ever want to talk; also, tell Ronald to send the next student in." said Alice

"Ok!" said Frida leaving the room

"(to herself) She's not trying to be a superhero nor does she really care about being a supervillain; she just wants to have power that she can call her own and keep up with her friend. Manny appears to be her motivation for the most part. She may want to be more than just his friend and believes having power will be able to keep his interest in her; whether it's out of keeping him as best friend or becoming his girlfriend can go either way. I'll have to keep a close eye on Frida and whatever Pyro has planned for her. She's not like the other people who have made contracts with Pyro and the other Familiars; I can't force her to give up this power like I did with them, especially after all the stuff Carmela told me about Frida's grandmother." said Alice


(Flashback)

After eating with the Suarez Family and getting to know some of the better, Alice helps Carmela with the dishes since it's her turn to do wash the dishes this week. As they are washing the dishes, Alice and Carmela begin to talk more; Alice started the conversation since she noticed some pictures of Chief Suarez when he was younger and with a Mohawk, and a picture of someone who almost looks like Frida but very older and has the words "Granny Suarez" on it.

"So Frida is more like her grandmother on your husband's side?" Alice asked Carmela

"Yes, and like Emiliano when he was younger too; they were a wild bunch like Frida is now." said Carmela

"Where is her grandmother now?" Alice asked

"She lives in a retirement home outside of Miracle City; her and Emiliano rarely ever speak anymore. Frida loved going to visit her when she was younger; she even got inspiration to be a musician like her grandmother once was. However, I wish she would take in some interest in law like I did, but she has to be her person and she's going to be an adult in the blink of an eye." said Carmela

"Kids will have to come up with what they want themselves; no one, especially us adults, can stop them from pursuing their hopes and dreams. All we can really do is guide them down the right path." said Alice

"True! Do you have any children of your own?" Carmela asked

"No! I do have nieces and nephews back in London; one of them would get a kick out of meeting Frida." said Alice pausing for a bit and hiding a sad look on her face but turns happy


In the present day, Frida is heading outside after her talk with Alice. As she is walking, she noticed Pyro waiting for her on a nearby roof. She runs over to him to see what he wanted.

"What is it?" Frida asked

"Another Spirit has awakened. This one is in the dimension of Plants and it's a huge flower spirit." said Pyro

"Alright, let's go!" said Frida

"You're not bringing your friend El Tigre with us; he can go with us on this one you know." said Pyro

"He can't; he has something else to do." said Frida

"Ok! By the way, what were you doing in that place?" Pyro asked

"I was talking to Ms. Grainger about my future career; nothing I didn't already know. Why, do you know her?" said Frida pretending that the conversation she had with Alice didn't happen

"It's a long story; you don't need to know about it. Let's go!" said Pyro

"Alright!" said Frida


(A couple of days later)

Outside of Miracle City, a girl with green hair in a ponytail, blue (left) and green (right) eyes, light brown skin, about Frida's height, and is wearing an all-black rob that covers her entire body, is looking at all the entire place. Then a small monkey appears right on her shoulder.

"So this is Miracle City; the spicy cesspool of crime and villainy. If I remember correctly, this is your hometown you were talking about, Teresa." said the monkey

"Yes! It's nice to be back. So is Pyro here, Solomon?" Teresa asked Solomon

"He is! I bet he's made a contract with someone by now." said Solomon

"It doesn't matter; as long as he and the Bravo Family pay for what they've done." said Teresa said with a menacing look on her face
