"There will be no escape for any of you", Superman declared as he descended from above, his voice echoing thunderously across the area.
"Tonight, I will end your threat to the empire once and for all!"

Superman's eyes glowed a bright red, and two beams of concentrated heat shot from them towards Reed Richards.
Reed twisted and contorted his body into a corkscrew shape, avoiding the laser blast from Superman's eyes. Beside Reed, Rogers unslung the automatic weapon on his shoulder and opened fire at Superman. He dodged four of the five bullets shot, but the fifth dug into his shoulder with a sharp pain.

"Ahh!" He shouted, more from surprise than pain.

"Kryptonite bullets, dirtbag," Rogers said as he climbed off his horse. "Courtesy of Lex Luthor."

Superman yelled in rage and dove down towards Rogers, his fist out and prepared to liquidate the elderly man.

"NO!" Ben shouted. His fist slammed into Superman's face, dropping the alien to the ground just a few feet in front of Rogers. While Ben and Superman squared off, Rogers and his platoon opened fire on the rest of Doom's troops.

"Go!" He shouted at Reed and Sue. "Get to that damn Sphinx on the double!"
