Fade In…

The pocket dimension appears to replication of ancient Egypt at night time, except for a deep violet sky. The stars that illuminate the night sky are not really stars, but are the coming forces of Ma'at.

Upon entering the portal, the heroes begin to spread out and fight the forces of Apep that soon begin to after the portal opens. Ozymandias stands close to Doctor Strange as the battle commences. He is armed with his assegai and his Zulu style shield, " Lady Ma'At will appear once Apep is at his most vulnerable, which he tries to take over my soul. If he does succeed in that effort, before Lady Ma'at arrives to battle him. You need to locked him in my soul, and make sure everyone departs this dimension, and closing the portal forever."

Ozymandias furrows his brow, "I assuming that Lady Ma'at will do what must be done after this portal is sealed, and finding Apep in my soul."

Snake-like creatures in Egyptian warrior garments begin to move on the location of the two heroes.

Strange offers little as reaction to the landscape, he has seen how powerful magical beings twist and shape pocket dimensions before, it means little. Ozymandias words, however… "are you the bait, then? Surely Apep realizes the goddess is coming. It would be foolish of him to act now," then the incoming snakemen draw his attention and he draws mystical runes on the air, raising defense shields first, and then hitting with blasts for magical energy.

"Yes, I have always been the bait. My powers can from a warrior of his that rebelled against him. My powers being connected to that creature, and all my years on the Earth make a perfect vessel for Apep. He needs a vessel to live in our dimension again on a permanent basis." The spells of Doctor Strange shield the heroes the snake like creature first wave, and the second wave of soldiers crushed against the first wave of soldiers pinning them against the mystical barrier, and the mystical blast by Strange severely reduces the ranks of the first two waves of soldiers facing Ozymandias and Strange.

After Strange attack, Ozymandias quickly moves to finished off the rest of the snake-like creatures. The creatures sink back into the grains of sand once they are defeated. Another wave prepares to march on the duo, as the other heroes that came through the portal are keeping the other snake-like creatures from advancing too.

Ozymandias raises his right eyebrow behind his mask, "He didn't know into he entered this dimension. Since you opened the portal, I don't think he has a way out without you.
The stars are shining brighter in the sky. The ground beneath Doctor Strange starts to rumble and circular pattern begin to form on the outside of the shields.

"I will prevent him from crossing over," replies Strange as he keeps launching bolts of power, and rebuilding those shields that are torn down. "I suppose Sphinx was his way into Earth. Well, that should be the least of our problems. Ma'at will confront him soon, and we need to play our role to ensure her victory."
"Sphinx was there to found me and coordinate Apep forces for his return." Ozymandias spins around and blocks incoming attack with his shield. "You know Apep would have his own army and a general upon his arrival. He would have some other benefits being me too, but that is not important." Ozymandias nods to Strange, "We need to play our…." Ozymandias places his shield and assegai out to battle another snake-like creature, but the creature retreats. "That is…."

His words are cut off as his movements become more rigid, "I believe I have encountered a problem. I am having trouble moving and thinking..speaking.

As he finish the statement, Lord Apep rises from the ground outside of Strange's shields. He is in the form of 48 yard snake with dark violet eyes. His ebony tongue flickers as he hisses an order to Strange, "Protector of Earth Realm, you have no business interfering in my affairs. If you wished to battle me, you can wait for me to finished my plans here. I will certainly call on you after my business here is done. Very Certain!"

"Yes, the snake is coming," confirms Strange when he earth start shacking, and the Cloak of Levitation takes him off the ground.

Those shields are barely going to slow down a god, so Strange is not bothering to reinforce them. Instead he faces the Chaos god himself. "You covet the world I defend, snake," replies the sorcerer. "You have no right to choose the time of the battleground, we shall stop you here, and now! And it is to protect the Earth that I summon the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak to entrap you for good!"

The crimson bands flow from Strange extended arms, near unbreakable bindings backed by the might of the master of the Crimson Cosmos that fly to attempt to wrap around the giant snake.

"It is the my world and my realm, before I was cast out. It shall be mine again" I am embodiment of Chaos!" Lord Apep begins to grow in size, but the bands of Cyttorak wrapped around him, and causes the dark god to his and wriggle.

"How long do you think these binds will hold me? I do not fear the power of Cyttorak. I laughed at Cyttorak's and others of his kind doing their Wager of the Octessence. Cyttorak is like Ozymandias and like yourself, their is more power to be had. He struggles against the bonds as he struggles against the bonds the sky and ground begin to shake, "I am Chaos. I effect all dimensions. I will shatter this plane, if you do not release.

As Apep's focus on freeing himself allows him to release his efforts of trying to gain control of Ozymandias's body, or notices that Ma'at forces are appearing on the battlefield to combat Apep's forces.

Several waves of soldiers now rushed on Doctor Strange to help free their Master.

"Just what I signed up for." Hal comments upon arrival through the portal, the green near skin tight aura around him suddenly not feeling up to snuff. An emerald flash and he encases himself in archaic looking armor of green, not exactly Egyptian more World War I Italian half-plate.
A green lance is hefted and hurled at the Chaos Snake. Not real regard for what it is saying. A Hal Jordan way of saying hello, effective or not.

"Foolish spirit, you were cast out when you overstepped your bounds," replies Strange, flying higher to avoid the soldiers. "Earth had and has many gods, all benefiting and protecting the wheels of the Axis Mundi. You lost your way, and you are still lost."

The Crimson Bands will fail soon, of course. They do not remain strong outside the Crimson Cosmos, and even less in the realms of other powers. But they are still delaying Apep, which was the goal. Nothing less the channeled might of other entity could do so. Strange is the Supreme Sorcerer, but he is only human.
After Green Lantern's attack hits Apep, he unleashes a litany of ancient Egyptian curses of the trio of heroes involving them having over fondness for their mothers, for animals, and even animals' mothers. Strange comments have served as a major distraction keeping him from noticing all the other players on the field of battle as he continues to work against the Crimson bands. "I am not a spirit! I am a God, release me, and I will give you spare you once I conquer your world!

Apep tries to wriggle free and tries to manipulate Green Lantern, "Help release me and I shall spare you too, and give you power that you can imagine. The dimension sky and ground quakes again as Apep tries to break through the bonds, "If I free myself on my own, I will kill you and all those that you love!"

Ozymandias takes this time of being able to move to read from the scroll he took from the Sphinx.
"Pal, I'm a Green Lantern, I have all the power I need and then some." Bravado, Jordan has it in spades. "And this whole thing with conquering my world? No thanks."
A green pegasus appears and Hal rides it towards the snake, a new lance has appeared and he is using it like a jouster, not that he knows how but use of the power ring is making up for much of this. "Hey doc, what you think? You ever see that old movie with the little mechanical owl?"
You paged Doctor Strange with 'You can sense that Ozymandias is allowing for Ma'at to enter this dimension through as the doorway.'

"Which one?" replies Strange. Probably no one he has seen, his movie-times is too limited! "Nevermind, keep hitting Apep." Because the Crimson Bands are dissolving. He is switching to blasting the giant god-head, but the sorcerer is well aware that it is not going to do much besides annoying the Chaos Lord.

But it is just a few more seconds. Ma'at feels very close now.
After tremendous effort and power, Apep finally breaks the Crimson bands of Cyttorak with such force that it knocks some of his own nearby men off of their feet. He flickering his tongue several times in the air and hisses to the noone in particular, "Where are you, Ma'at? I can sense you. Mystical blasts from a Sorcerer Supreme, even if he is not in his realm still do more than just ignore the Chaos Lord.

After the first barrage of mystical blasts his head, the Chaos Lord, Apep lets out another litany of ancient Egyptian insults.

He is about to turn his attack, when he sees Green Lantern light winged horse and lance and mistakes them for a warrior of Ma'at. "You dare attack me with your Mistress!" He opens his mouth and a host of locusts flies towards Green Lantern.

Ozymandias calls out to Doctor Strange in a hoarse voice. "Doctor, I need your help. The mystical snakes that only the Doctor Strange can see are disappearing and reappearing in his body. He gasps and screams in pains as if he is giving birth from every molecule of his birthday, "I need …a pro….tector of the light to bring Ma'at out of me! Ozymandias fades in and out of the dimension as he continues to scream, the scroll dropping on the ground as he deals with his agony. "It needs a Sorcerer Supreme to complete!"

Strange hears Ozymandias request and flies down, hoping Hal's ring is as powerful as advertised. "I am here, and I have the key to the gate," he states, tearing the Eye of Agamotto from his clasp. When the amulet opens the light is blinding. Anathema to the whole chaos realm to the point the walls around the pocket dimension become weaker around the eye.

"Oh, I don't know. The one with the guy with the sandals and the toga… " Specific, Hal isn't fast enough to bring up his shield as the locusts swarm over him and the flying horse, the construct shatters and he envelopes himself in a circular barrier. "Ok so I need to pay more attention… " Gritting his teeth he focuses on the bubble of protection until the swarm subsides and then fires out a swarm of large chains to start encircling Apep attempting to strengthen the hold the Crismon Bands had, if there is still any, if not, they'll just wrap up as well. Keep the enemy immobale and distracted until someone pulls comes up with a better idea.
"This isn't my forte, what do we do?" The Green Lantern shouts.
.
Apep is the God of Chaos, Of Evil, Of Darkness, but today he has encountered the heroes of the light in the form of the Justice League. Even though the Crismon Bands are gone, Apep now has to to do with the power of Green's Lantern's light in form of chains wrapped around him. As Apep struggles to break the bond of these new chains, it gives Doctor Strange to add more light to the battle against the darkness.

The eye of Agmatto the orb bestowed upon the Sorcerer Supreme of Earth does allow the Ma'at, Goddess of Order to enter this dimension directly in front of Apep. She appears as a woman with dark coffee colored skinned women in golden armor that radiates light. She stands about 50 yards talls and when she speaks it is like the sound of thunder cracking through the heavens. "Apep, God of Chaos! You will no longer be involved in the Earth's Realm!
.
Strange looks quite relieved when Ma'at finally shows up. He was running out energy and tricks. "We can step back now, Green Lantern," he replies to the ring wielder. "Are you well, Ozymandias? You should withdraw back to Earth. I will remain here as witness for a few more minutes. But I suspect this cycle of conflict is over and Apep will return to the shadows for some years."

"Whatever you say, doc." Hal replies, his ring withdrawing it's assault to shrink back in on himself, even the force bubble disappears leaving just the Green Lantern hovering in place. Gravity no issue for the intergalactic space cop. He'll wait patiently and offer aid where he can but at the moment hes largely playing support, which is what he came here for. He knows what he is good at and what he isn't, magic and Gods? That is definitely more Doctor Strange and Wonder Woman.
Ozymandias remains motionless, but standing in place, but he is not reappearing and appearing anymore. Ma'at speaks to Strange and Green Lantern in their minds. "Your friend is alive, but he will be change. He was born out of chaos. He is a body is living covenant to the deal he made, but his new covenant is with me. He will be living embodiment that out of chaos can come order. He will discover what I mean in the days to come, such is the price of magic.

Ma'at pulls out a sickle sword that casts a shadow over the battlefield as she puts one of her huge feet on Apep's body as he tries to escape. The other heroes begin to ready to depart the dimension as the forces of Apep have routed by the forces of Ma'at and the other heroes.

As Doctor Strange departs the dimension. sealing Apep within the dimension, Ma'at and her forces begins her battle with Apep and his forces in a battle which undoubtedly last eons.
