Part 2: Story
Part 3: Summary
Tales of the Torn TARDIS – Chapter 5
It’s a blue police box, the kind that hasn’t been seen in England since the 1980’s, and it flies through time and space driven by the impeccable will of a madman and genius. The TARDIS and the Doctor, two lost souls venturing into unknown territories, forever seeking but never concluding their everlasting journey.
Who could have foreseen their ultimate destinies after their countless adventures? A destiny that could spell the end of everything….
It was the black of space, cold, unending and dotted with the burning stars which the Doctor liked to think of as a horizon. He liked comparisons like that; something that would remind him of Earth, the planet he would call home. So many faces from the past flashed in his mind, some dead, some long forgotten, some loved and all left behind. He was good at that; leaving things behind.
He brushed his hand along the smooth edge of a flashing screen and felt the familiar hum and rumble of the TARDIS. Familiar and soothing, like a mother cradling her child. He smiled at the thought.
Suddenly a whirling light flashed on a table and a loud siren started sounding. The Doctor flew over to the control deck, furiously flicking switches and turning dials and the result was a large screen which floated before him.
His mouth fell open as he saw the appearance before him. A man? Surely not, it was a nightmarish fusion of technology and flesh of imaginable proportions. It was larger than planets, larger than suns and amazingly bipedal in appearance, purple and blue and with a gaze that spoke of eternal wisdom.
From far in the deepest recesses of his memory came a name familiar in the ancient histories of Gallifrey; Galactus, devourer of worlds! A myth surely! A legend made to scare children!
And yet, here he was, the ancient terror, as clear as could be. And just as the Doctor watched the wielder of the power cosmic, so too did the God of Oblivion turn his gaze upon the mighty TARDIS and his eyes went wide with something like astonishment. He raised his hand…
Cosmic power reached out towards pure time energy and the two clashed in a raging tornado of elemental chaos. Galactus fed like he had never fed before, his power swelling and growing inside him; cosmic and temporal forces raged in his heart and expanded until he could no longer contain them.
Galactus imploded in on himself, a being older than the universe torn asunder by pure time and the TARDIS, itself feeding on the backlash of power cosmic distorted and tore apart trying to contain the reaction…
The TARDIS blew apart in a showering of energy; the six pieces that formed the outer shell flew in six different directions through time and space and in their wake time and space became distorted and rippled.
Beings aged backwards and children gave birth to their parents. Time streams split and ancient beings walked with future entities. Old nightmares were reborn and new wars began throughout the universe as creatures that should never have met were brought together in a savage wrenching of reality. Ancient Leviathans from burnt out stars collided with Imperial Cruisers and the darkness of space was awash with death.
Of the Doctor there was no sign.
It was the DESTRUCTION OF TIME and nothing would ever be the same again….
1. Princess Leia Organa VS Padme Amidala
2. Vlad the Impaler and Blackbeard VS Robin
3. Terminator & Robocop VS Predator & Alien
4. Gandalf VS Master Roshi
Chapter 5 – Descendants of the Gun
Dr Strange, Mr Fantastic and Batman stood at one of the room. Everyone else gave them plenty of room as they whispered quietly to each other. After nearly an hour they turned to the rest of the room’s occupants and strode towards a large terminal under a large projector.
“Thank you for coming at such short notice everyone. As you may have noticed we have a crisis of nearly unparalleled scale on our hands” said Dr Strange. He waved his hands and the terminal switched itself on, lights flickering and a distorted image appearing on the screen. It swivelled around, offered a full view from every angle to the crowded room.
“This is a TARDIS; an advanced machine created by a believed to be extinct alien race that acts as a time machine, carrying the occupant to any point in time or space. If our readings are correct, this machine, the last of its kind, came into contact with the Cosmic Being known to us as Galactus.”
Dr Strange stepped back at these words and Mr Fantastic came forward, carrying a remote control in his hand. With a click of a button the image changed.
“Here you have the result of this encounter, a wave of pure time energy that has from what we can see, literally broken time and space. We won’t have time to give you all the details, apart from to say that nothing is likely to ever be the same again. From what we can tell, past, present and future as well as numerous alternate dimensions have merged with as yet immeasurable damage.
We are working on a solution but the best option appears to be to find the owner of the TARDIS. The only photo we have of him comes from an alternative universe, location as yet unknown and we believe that this man may be a clone of some sort.”
Richards pressed his remote again to change the image.
“Whilst we attempt to locate this alien, we need all of you to do everything you can to ensure as many lives are saved as possible. That is all that can be done of you at this time and the moment we locate this alien, we will call as many of you as possible to come and help him stop this calamity from ever happening.
Your normal teams will apply although Batman and I will be in charge of deployment. Orders will be relayed directly to your team leaders.”
The roomful of heroes quickly got up, worried eyes on every brow and left the room. The mixed feelings of desperation and helplessness would follow their every brave footstep…
“Punisher, Wolverine, please stay” said a stern voice from the front of the room.
Both men stopped on their way out, casting sideways glances at each other before coming back in to stand in front of Richards, Strange and Batman.
“You both are coming with me as we’ve got a special situation on our hands” said Batman, his face unreadable.
“I’ve got my own team bub” growled Wolverine
Batman nodded to Mr Fantastic who pressed another button on his remote. Images of the three flew up onto the screen with underneath each, images of three other men.
“Unfortunately us three have a little problem on our hands that requires our personal attention” retorted Batman. “It would seem that our descendants have clubbed together, gone mad and are currently blowing up half a city.”
“Our descendants?” said Punisher, an eyebrow raised.
“Yes, from various future timelines. They seem to have found each other in the chaos and the time travel has unhinged their minds. They are seeing everything and everyone as a threat and with the fire power they’ve brought back with them, they can do a lot of damage.”
“Let’s move it then” said Wolverine, “won’t be the first progeny I’ve had to put down.”
In a world gone mad, where time is no longer relative, heroes battle against insurmountable odds as past and future collide into the present - bringing the nightmares of yesterday and tomorrow to an unprepared world.
Three men step out into the chaos to find their future, a future of chaos, madness and fury; and put it in its place.
Duke, Doomguy and Dredd in a warehouse with all their usual firepower. Their trip from the future has unhinged their minds and they see everything as a threat. Wolverine, Punisher and Batman, in fact the ancestors of the future three, are sent to bring them down before they do any more damage.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but is the setup saying that Team 2 has access to Gallifreyian technology?
Sorry that wasn't clear. Nope, as yet none of the heroes have access to anything but their own resources. So Punisher, Wolverine and Batman with all their regular resources + element of surprise & brief planning period VS Duke, Doomguy and Judge Dredd with access to all weapons from the games/comics and the savage will to kill all.
