It was easier for a sentient gorilla to make a stealthy entrance into a public building that you'd think. Granted it was night and he had traveled in a rather large fan to hide his massive frame while traveling, but it had still been easier than anticipated.

"Keep an eye open," Grodd ordered the humans up front. They were both mind-controlled security personnel with credentials that would send any nosy bystanders off none the wiser.

A few got out, casing the perimeter before one gave a couple knocks on the van door. Signal given that it was clear, Grodd exited. The sight of several light-armored men escorting a giant gorilla into a museum would be an odd sight just about anywhere else..but this was Central City. Grodd had been here many times before. He let out a low growl. He would have greatly preferred not to come to this city again, but this called for his personal attention. If the worst came to happen, it wouldn't matter. The wheels were already in motion. He abandoned the line of thinking when he heard the security team unlock the door. They had already disabled the alarm.

"You two, keep an eye on the front. The rest of you, come with me."

They followed as dutiful as any soldier, which was precisely what their mental programming told them to do. The local security guard was knocked unconscious and drugged into a corner. It was then that Grodd saw his objective. It looked relatively unimpressive, a relic found in some backwater third world country. It was carved to resemble some primitive deity, but if what Grodd suspected was true, it was something more entirely.

Alarms are meant for the police. And truthfully it was probably better that they not get involved in this.

Barry used low level speed to do reconnaissance...his higher speeds would cause audible clues of his presence...and caught the nine foot hulking figure out of the glimpse of his eye.

He immediately set off his JLA signal device before doing anything else. Snart and Rory were one thing. Grodd was *dangerous*

"Manhunter to Flash... I am on my way."

Fortunately, his own issues in South America had resolved themselves. This VULTURE cell would not be bothering anyone for some time.

He lifted into the air and pointed himself towards North America.

Whatever that thing was, if Grodd wanted it, that couldn't be good. And Barry couldn't wait for backup anymore.

Barry quickly zipped to the warehouse area of the museum. grabbed a lockbox, then went at top speed to snatch the relic into the lockbox without actually TOUCHING it.

Grodd's Force of Mind was like a powerful homing beacon, especially to one as psychically attuned as J'onn.

Turning himself invisible and intangible, he slipped through the walls just in time to see Grodd lash out as the Flash.

The Speed Force affects more than simple land speed. It comes in handy with the reflexes as well. That's the only reason Grodd's blow doesn't remove his head from his shoulders. Flash basically does a Matrix move, bending backwards at the swing, but Grodd's massive arm connects with his chest and sends him flying towards a wall. He changes his vibrational frequency to pass harmlessly through the wall, but he was going to feel that blow in his ribs for a bit.

"I'd hoped you had realized that every time you leave the jungle, it ends badly for you Grodd." Flash said. "I've already called for backup, so you might want to cut the puppet strings of your minions and bolt."

The sudden surge in psychic power was enough to shock J'onn to visibility, but he recovered his composure almost immediately.

"Let it go, Grodd," he said. "I can sense that relic's power from here. You know not what forces you are tampering with."

Flash has J'onn out of that area before he barely gets a tan from the fire, then uses the momentum of the speed to run right at Grodd, then stop, sending J'onn flying towards Grodd. Hopefully J'onn thinks well on the fly.

J'onn's reflexes are not quite on par with those of the Flash, but are still fast enough to make his reactions seem extraordinary.

As soon as he is hurling toward Grodd, his form changes, becoming a mass of spiky tentacles, reaching out for the rogue gorilla.

This was gonna be a new one. Flash, retrieving the box he tried to trap the totem in, sped past each of the security team and captured the grenades in the box between the ticks of a second.

Phase two was going to be something different...however, all barriers, even psionic ones, had a frequency. Barry attempted to vibrate BETWEEN the frequency in order to deposit all the grenades WITHIN Grodd's barrier, forcing him to either drop the barrier or absorb the explosions internally.

If it worked, that is.

J'onn smacked into the shield, rebounding off with a slight sizzle, returning to his humanoid form.

With Flash occupying Grodd, he focused his efforts on Grodd's minions, applying his own psychic power to break the super-gorilla's hold on them.

The roof may come down, but not before Flash charges Grodd dead on, as fast as he can safely travel in the atmosphere. He may not have super strength, but he makes up for it in velocity.

Fortunately, J'onn can act to save the roof, expanding out his arms and hands to hold it against Grodd's psychic attack.

Flash knew better than to outrace a teleporter blindly...he could get there, but where he would end up isn't as known.

And technically, he did prevent Grodd from taking the idol, however pyrrhic that victory may be. "J'onn, please check Grodd's victims. I'll look for anything Grodd may have left and prepare for Central City Police to arrive."

"Of course, Flash," J'onn said, gently touching the minds of Grodd's victims. If the super-gorilla had left any trace of his influence behind, he would be able to ferret it out.

Grodd's powers had been formidable enough before hand. If he had enhanced them...
