So Desert Storm and Batman teamed up (just like in a typical episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold) to take on the villainous duo of Mentuhotep (detailed in ICONS: Hero Pack I) and The Rukh (from Moreau Files 2, a Vigilance Press product by Mike Lafferty). Desert Storm and The Rukh, who is sometimes friend, sometimes foe, have crossed paths before. The action took place in the Egyptian desert at the site of a lost tomb buried beneath the sands that belonged to the infamous Black Pharaoh, his real name erased for his crimes eons ago. Mentuhotep and The Rukh teamed up together to raid the tomb and recover two powerful artifacts that each desired to possess: The Book of the Undead (containing powerful necromantic magics that Mentuhotep desired) and the Rod of the Scorpion (a powerful but corrupting weapon that The Rukh wanted to obtain to help protect the people of his Middle Eastern nation). Desert Storm learned of their plans and contacted Batman who flew over to the Middle East in the Batplane to help him put a stop to it and recover the dangerous artifacts themselves and safely hide them away.
Outside the entrance to the tomb, Desert Storm and Batman first had to battle two giant scorpions summoned by The Rukh with the Rod of the Scorpion. Once those menaces were defeated, the heroes entered the tomb and had a final showdown in the burial chamber of the tomb. Mentuhotep and The Rukh were eventually defeated and Batman took the Book of the Undead and the Rod of the Scorpion away for safekeeping. All-in-all, it was a fun time!
