Master Assassin, Cleandemise Captured By Dark Moth, Lightning Slash and TAXIman.

If you are a reporter, in the police, military, politics, big business and/or organised crime. You may have heard rumours about Cleandemise. Otherwise, you have likely never heard of them until now. Cleandemise is a notorious master assassin for hire. Known to take any job as long as the pay is high enough. They are also known for their ruthless efficiency and skill.

Last night, Cleandemise was arrested after being lured into a trap set up by the ULH (universal League of Heroes), and joint MI5, Interpol and CIA investigations. Once in the trap, Cleandemise fought against Dark Moth, Lightning Slash and TAXIman. We at Fluff Tuft News have seen footage of the battle which was recorded by the Military Super Division.

Cleandemise approached a large SUV parked in the centre of a field, before Dark Moth appeared ahead of them, and with a flash of lightning and sound of thunder, Lightning Slash appeared behind Clean Demise. The 3 stood motionless for a few seconds. probably discussing an arrest. Then Clean Demise threw an axe headed chain at Dark Moth, which was easily avoided. Lightning Slash attempted to attack Clean Demise but received a kick to the head instead. The 3 fought with speed and agility that was not picked up well on the cameras, just flashes of light, glints of metal, flying sparks and flowing shadows, moving around the landscape, followed by an incessant booming. Multiple scars and craters appeared in the earth, as if by chance. With a sudden explosion 10 feet above the ground Dark Moth was thrown backwards into the ground and through the SUV as if it were nothing but paper. Cleandemise stood proud, but was suddenly assaulted by thousands of flashes of light, as Lightning Slash delivered a flurry of blows from all directions. Clean demise seemed to be dodging and blocking, but against an invisible foe. Lightning Slash suddenly became visible as she was battered into the ground by heavy chains. But as Cleandemise stood there, the assassin’s left arm fell off. Dark Moth rejoined the fray by lunging at Cleandemise but they jumped back in time. Since their detached hand was still holding the chains, they pulled at the chain and used their lost hand as a blunt ranged weapon, until Dark Moth and Lightning Slash each destroyed a section of the chain. Cleandemise now with a new left arm had a strange looking assault rifle and fired upon the two heroes. A sphere of darkness seemed to erupt from Dark Moth repelling the bullets, meanwhile Lightning Slash disappeared in a burst of light and reappeared in a flash in front of Cleandemise, but she was batted away. Cleandemise pointed the rifle at Lightning Slash and a second pistol of sorts at Dark Moth, the pistol fired a beam of light which cut through Dark Moth’s shield, but failed to connect with the Dark Moth. Then the two guns evaporated. As TAXIman appeared overhead, using his powers. The fight once again became a series of darting shadows and light until TAXIman stopped in midair and was flung to the ground by a chain protruding from his chest. Cleandemise jumped over the fallen hero and threw another bladed chain at him, but the chain and blade disappeared before it could reach the hero, TAXIman was still alive and awake. The fight recommenced between the three remaining contenders. Dark Moth seemed to be firing a red laser from their wrists now, every so often a singular red beam of light pointed into the sky, and at one point it cut more horizontally, and through the peak of a distant hill, which began to crumble away. Once again, Dark Moth was hurled through the ground, and the fight stopped, and all went silent, as Cleandemise held Lightning Slash upside down, restrained, her head under the assassin’s reinforced boot. Then with a sickening crack she dropped limply to the ground. Dark Moth successfully punched Cleandemise in the skull and an orb of darkness erupted from their fist flinging Cleandemise across the field only to be met by another such attack and then again and again and again. Cleandemise attempted to stand but suddenly all their equipment and clothes vanished, to be replaced by a vast amount of restraints, ties and a straight jacket. A fully recovered TAXIman stood behind the captured assassin and Lightning Slash herself stood up, stretching her neck, seemingly uninjured.

Cleandemise appears to be a tall, muscular and heavily scared white male, with white hair in a military style cut.

It is believed they will not spend much time in custody, and will instead trade prison time for info leading to the arrests of various people who have hired them in the past.

The 3 heroes are said to be in good health without so much as bruise or scratch. TAXIman was severely injured at one point but recovered quickly thanks to their power.

We will bring you more news as the story develops
