Jason Brooks of Triconia sits atop an obsidian throne overlooking Wonder from the top of the newly risen Spire of Blackskull, which now towers over the Silver Castle. With his dark powers mostly restored by the Black Heart, Jason can see what has happened to his allies in Triconia. Only one word comes to mind.
Jason lifts into the air off of his throne and to an altar, where he begins to channel his power. "Accursed seal! Even now I am not powerful enough to consume Wonder with the Black Void! My only chance now is to complete the ritual and transform. Once I become Blackskull the Voidbringer once again, darkness will completely take this land!"
"Don't be so sure of that." Jason hears a strangely familiar voice respond to him. Jason turns and sees the visage of Black and grins wickedly.
"Ah it's you, the traitor who led the forces of light right through the Black Void! If it had not been for your daughter, the Black Void would never have consumed Wonder!"
"Wonder was always Blackskull's greatest obsession, and his greatest failure." Black replies with a knowing nod. "In helping the forces of light stop Blackskull, I in turn saved the Black Void as well! Jazenok would have undone the balance of light and darkness by destroying himself and the Black Void to accomplish this one goal. I had the foresight to insure he was destroyed before he could do that."
"Once I am complete again and defeat the heroes of Wonder, I am coming to the Black Void to deal with you myself!" Jason threatens, but the grin never leaves Black's face.
"You can't win, even if you do transform. Your actions here in Wonder have condemned you to failure at the hands of my daughter, the Powerpuff Paragon of Shadow!"
Jason's eyes widen in genuine horror upon hearing this. Jason Brooks of Triconia remembered fighting Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup when he tried to open a portal to the Black Void in Townsville. The Powerpuff Girls defeated him and knocked him through the small portal he had opened, causing him to enter the Black Void itself and become Blackskull, but trapping him in the Black Void at the same time. By herself, Blackheart would be no challenge to Jason once he transformed, but as the Powerpuff Paragon of Shadow...
"Fine. If I cannot draw Wonder into the Black Void, then I will just destroy everyone!" Jason shouts angrily, clenching his fists. "Wonder will be saved, but I will take those who stood against me the longest to oblivion with me!"
Black simply chuckles with bemusement at Jason. "You do that, 'Lord' Jason of Triconia. See how many you actually manage to destroy before Blackheart erases you from existence for good! When you are gone, the threat of Jazenok Blackskull the Voidbringer will finally be gone forever! I look forward to this most of all."
Black's voice trails off as the ritual nears completion. Jason looks and sees the Silver Knights, led by Quintin, Felicia, and Blackheart approaching the Spire of Blackskull.
Jason returns to his throne and sits down, resting his chin on his clenched fist. "...let them come. The darkness will consume them all!"
Jason summons several portals leading into the Black Void in the fields outside the Silver Castle, as armies of dark warriors emerge from them to engage the Silver Knights. Garog and Ran take the lead, Garog smashing them and knocking them around with his warhammer, while Ran washes them off the path with her water magic.
"Garog, Ran, and I will stay here and hold the line. Blackheart, You take Quintin and Felicia and put an end to this!" Marx shouts to Blackheart, who nods, taking the Sorwin hero and the Silver Queen by the arm and flying toward the top of the Spire of Blackskull at high speed! Banshee and Siryn choose to take to the air as well, but stay with the Silver Knights to do battle with the dark army.
Jason watches with a hateful frown as Blackheart lands on top of the Spire of Blackskull, releasing Quintin and Felicia. Quintin is quick to draw Reflection, pointing the glowing blue sword at the dark lord. "It's over Jason, you've lost everything!"
"Indeed I have. Triconia, the Black Void, my army, my allies, all gone." Jason says, somehow managing to sound truly sad. "I have nothing left."
"Then surrender." Felicia says, drawing her own sword, certain that Jason won't actually surrender. Her instincts prove correct as Jason's frown twists into a sadistic smile, drawing his talwars as he stands up.
"Nothing except the chance to put an end to the both of you!" Jason shouts, opening portals to the Black Void all around himself! The dark powers coming from the portals engulf Jason's body completely.
"Jason stop! If you transform here and now, the magical seals will consume you!" Blackheart yells at the dark lord. "Your ties to the Black Void are severed, and you will cease to exist once you have exhausted all your remaining power!"
"I already know this..." Jazenok Blackskull the Voidbringer says as he steps forward, the portals to the void closing around him! "I have accepted that this is the end. However, before I go, I intend to destroy Quintin and Felicia, the two who have stood in my for far too long!" Blackskull chuckles darkly, still holding the talwar swords in his hands. "I should thank you, Powerpuff Paragon of Shadow, for bringing them here, to me. I will allow you to watch me put an end to them as a reward!"
With a maniacal laugh, Jason teleports right in front of Quintin and Felicia and swings his swords at both of them, but Quintin and Felicia each parry his talwars with their respective swords Reflection and the Royal Silver Rapier. Blackheart grabs Blackskull by his scarf and slams him into his throne, shattering it to pieces.
"Did you think I was just going to stand idly by and just let you hurt them?" Blackheart asks, crossing her arms and narrowing her eyes. She then aims her arms as Blackskull starts to get up, but feels Quintin grab one of them.
"No, let us handle this." Quintin requests of Blackheart, looking into her large red eyes. "Blackskull has terrorized Wonder long enough. It's time Felicia and I put a stop to him ourselves."
Blackheart nods in understanding and lowers her arms. "There is still something I can do." She says, looking down at the battle below. The Silver Knights, Garog, Ran, Marx, Banshee, and Siryn are fighting the ever increasing waves of shadows and dark warriors pouring from the Black Void. She counts the number of portals, and raises a single arm into the air...
...and produces multiple star shaped projectiles that circle around her raised arm. She then casts them forward, causing them to scatter and fly directly at each portal! One of them goes right through one of the portals and explodes on the other side, causing the portal to close and Blackskull to stagger backwards as though he were hit by the attack himself!
Quintin and Felicia see this opening and charge at Blackskull, slashing their swords at the former Voidbringer. Both of them manage to land a few strikes as another Galaxy Missile destroys another portal, causing Blackskull to stagger again! The Sorwin hero presses his attack, parrying a talwar and cutting into the Voidbringer's arm, causing him to drop the sword.
Blackskull raises his other arm, talwar ready to strike, when he staggers again, feeling his power drop significantly as another portal is destroyed by Blackheart! Quintin spins and chops Blackskull's other arm completely off, which causes it to disappear in a flash of red and green smoke as Felicia casts a spell and blasts Jazenok in the legs with a beam of light!
Blackskull lands face down with a crash. "I will... destroy at least... one of you... before this is over!"
"It's time." Quintin nods at Felicia as Blackskull tries to stand, but is pounded down by Blackheart destroying the remaining portals all at once with the rest of her Galaxy Missiles. As Blackskull lays prone atop his spire, Quintin leaps high into the air and lands on top of the Voidbringer, driving Reflection through his back as Felicia enchants her Royal Silver Rapier with pure light and drives the blade into Jazenok's black skull itself!
The Spire of Blackskull itself explodes in response to the final destruction of Jason Brooks of Triconia and Jazenok Blackskull the Voidbringer. The floor beneath Quintin and Felicia crumbles beneath them as they start to fall, but are quickly caught by Blackheart, who carries them away from the tower and drops them off safely back in the field where the others are waiting for them. Everyone turns and watches as the Spire of Blackskull disappears completely, and the skies change from dark grey to blue once again.
"It's finally over." Blackheart says, a few tears forming in her eyes. "I am so sorry for all the trouble I caused you."
"You don't have to apologize." Felicia says with a comforting smile. "To be honest, we did not know a piece of Blackskull's powers still lingered within Jason of Triconia. Thanks to you, it has been destroyed completely."
"You risked your life to fight for us, and gave up much of what you were to save Wonder." Quintin replies. "In making such a selfless sacrifice, it appears you have already been rewarded."
Blackheart nods, looking down at her new self in awe. "The power I now wield is even greater than anything I could have done before. I promise I will use these powers as best I can to do good. It's just..."
"What's wrong?" Quintin asks, looking confused.
"Without my old powers, I won't ever be able to come back to Wonder once Felicia sends me home with her magic. I'll never see any of you ever again." Blackheart looks sadly at Quintin. "I do have to go home though. I have friends there that must miss me terribly. Before I go, there is one more thing I must do..."
Quintin looks at Felicia, who shrugs at him. He turns back and asks Blackheart. "What is left for you to do before you leave?"
"This." Blackheart throws her arms around Quintin and kisses him deeply on the mouth. She lets him go a moment later, a dark blush in her cheeks as she takes one final look at Quintin. "Thank you."
Quintin looks a bit surprised by this, but smiles regardless, waving good-bye to Blackheart as Felicia opens a portal for her.
"Good-bye Blackheart. Know that no matter what happens, you will always be welcomed as a friend to Wonder." Felicia says, waving to Blackheart.
Blackheart looks back at all the friends she's made during the war against her evil self and Jason Brooks of Triconia, knowing her adventure in Wonder was over. With a tearful smile, she waves good-bye to them and flies through the portal at high speed.
"I never would have imagined one of our greatest heroes would have come from the Black Void itself, of all places!" Marx says.
"I would not have guessed the Powerpuff Paragon of Shadow would awaken here in Wonder." Felicia says, deep in thought. "I only hope we haven't accidentally altered the balance of light and dark back in Blackheart's world..."
