Revolution! Twenty-Two

The Green Man chuckled, as the man dressed as Jack the Ripper fell back, confusion writ large in his manner.

"You fool," he shook his head. "Did you really think that you could deceive the Green Man? I have fought evil these many years, and you will not disturb me any more than the other people of evil."

"How...?" the evil man breathed.

"Justice," the Green Man told him, "will find a way."
"If you go forward," the evil man laughed, "then the lovely, if battered blonde on the ground will die. Men!" The two men made to draw guns.

The gun of the Green Man spoke twice. Two bullets lodged in two hearts. The big men fell, lifeless to the ground, as the Green Man stepped in front of Ms. Madison.

"No, Jack," the Green Man shook his head. "You are up against the defenders of order. Your death is certain."

"Don't you want to know why?" the man chuckled.

"I already know," the Green Man told him. "And your doom is sealed."
The evil man froze, as the Green Man moved towards him.
