The Spurvengers 2: I am Iron Manu!

"And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's mightiest basketballers found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Spurvengers were born—to fight the foes no single super star could withstand! Through the years, their roster has prospered, changing many times, their glory has never been denied! Heed the call, then—for now, the Spurvengers Assemble!"

Having emerged victorious after a vicious seven-day battle with the Skrulls, Captain Timerica, Iron Manu, and Pop Fury consider their next move. A nap? A hair cut? A bottle of wine?

But alas, our heroes cannot relax. For yet another threat to the very existence of D.E.F.E.N.S.E. has emerged, the deadly accurate Whiplash. The alter ego of Portlandian LaMarcon Aldko, Whiplash believes Iron Manu is responsible for the death of basketball in his city and vows revenge.

Iron Manu, competing in a damaged suit, doesn't realize the danger he is in. As he throws himself into the game with reckless abandon, Iron Manu fails to sense that each jumper from Whiplash is draining more and more mojo power.

His fans having turned on him, Iron Manu has nowhere else to turn, as his damaged suit has finally given out on him. Viewing the superhero as old and vulnerable, Whiplash takes advantage of the situation to advance his position in the league.

But Iron Manu has friends. Looking only to his offensive weapons, Whiplash is blindsided by the hefty Bor Machine. A member of the foreign branch of D.E.F.E.N.S.E., the Frenchman's timely assist proves key in defeating the Portlandian threat.

Seeing D.E.F.E.N.S.E. still scrambling to recover from it's latest battle, the Mandamian decides to attack while Iron Manu is still down. Luring the Bor Machine with promises of croissants, the Mandamian steals the secrets of the Foreign branch of the agency, incapacitating a key member of the team with his speed and long-range shooting.

Sensing potential weakness, Agent Matt Coulson dispatches defensive specialist Tiasha Romanoff, hoping that as Iron Manu recovers, the sexy Brazilian can shore up any glaring holes and also lift the team's mood with her sparkling personality.

Will Iron Manu rediscover his Euro-stepping superhero ability? Will the enigmatic Kawhulk and the crafty Thorny come to the fore and lead D.E.F.E.N.S.E. in defeating this latest threat from the West? Only Pop (Fury) knows.
