With the machine off, inside the capsule, Claus stirs a little. He looks up at the glass, and...
His pupils are gone, and his eyes have a red shine. Which means-
Before it can even sink in, he glows twice, and blasts the capsule into pieces. Smoke from the ruined machine fills the room, and he slowly stumbles forward, sword in his hand and zombie-like gaze right at Thor.
"You're so fucking boring that I'd rather get the butterfly."
She leaps at lower speed to try to catch it.
"THAT MACHINERY WAS PRECIOUS EQUIPMENT." he comments. "REBUILDING IT WILL TAKE ME RESOURCES NEEDED ELSEWHERE. IRRITATING."
".... NOTED : PRESENCE OF AN ENEMY. NON-LETHAL SUBDUING ACTIVATED."

"So how you planning to obtain Ultra Instinct? Is it by eating this butterfly?"
The butterfly doesn't bother to dodge.
Thor staggers back when the capsule's blown to pieces, then brings Mjolnir to bare upon noticing that Claus wasn't entirely himself at the moment...
"Claus... I would stand down if I were you."
Claus... no, the Masked Man creepily staggers forward, his eye's visor landing on Thor.
Subject: Thor. Threat level: high. Enemy status: unknown. Brother to Loki. Searching for data... Loki: Threat level, high. Enemy status: high. Related to subject Thor. Thor: Enemy status: high.
The Masked Man flashes, and suddenly leaps forward to swipe at Thor with his sword. Regardless of what happens, he'll immediately follow it up with an attempt to stab him.
He doesn't attack Platinum, but only because, since he is in another room, he hasn't noticed him yet.
Platinum makes little move to help Thor, studying the ruined capsule instead and looking at blue prints to see how to fix it, he seems wholly more concerned about the technology rather than Thor's safety, though he probably know how strong Thor is.
She looks at the butterfly.
"Well, Ultra Instinct involve skill and reflexes ? I'll enhance them.
Thor quickly parries both of the Masked Man's strikes with Mjolnir and attempts to knock the sword out of his hand with one swing of his hammer, then attempts to thrust kick him into one of the lab's walls.
"I am not your enemy, Claus! Try to think!"
He briefly glances at Platinum.
"I would greatly appreciate your assistance in subduing him, you know!"
The sword gets knocked out of his hand, but the Masked Man leaps backwards to avoid Thor's attack.
He responds only with silence, as he aims his arm cannon at Thor and fires three shots at him.
"ENOUGH. CEASE YOUR DESTRUCTION OF THE LAB IMMEDIATELY." he says, stepping out and attempting to knock Claus out with a slow but powerful jab.
"That actually sounds like a good idea."
"Wait a- goddammit."
He fishes out the pamphlet.
"Huh... oh yeah."
"Do you know any angels? Because unless you're a monstrous prodigy (which you aren't, really) you need an angel."
The butterfly doesn't say a word.
Sighing, Thor simply advances towards the Masked Man and blocks the blasts with Mjolnir as they come before hurling the hammer right past the Masked Man's head. Upon closing the distance, he attempts to... shove him into Platinum's jab before Mjolnir returns to his hand.

The Masked Man instinctively dodges the hammer, unaware that it was meant to miss, and as such, he ends up getting pushed into Platinum's jab, which makes him fall on the ground, flinching for a moment. He gets back up quickly though, and starts to glow in a more intense manner, as energy starts to surround him.
They better do something to stop him, because he's about to cast PSI Love Ω, which, if he's allowed to pull it off, will not only seriously hurt Platinum and Thor, but it'll also most likely wreck a huge part of the laboratory. It might even cause the area they're in to collapse in on them, potentially killing all three of them.
"E X P L A I N Y O U R S H I T !" she yells, letting go of the butterfly and trying to violently strangle Oca.
Platinum decide to override the safety protocols and try to grab Claus's head before attempting to put up a strong electric shock all over his body to try to interrupt the process, before attempting to simply beat him into unconsciousness, his eyes glowing red but his face remaining emotionless as he attempts to pummel the Masked Man with strength greater than a Sister's.
Thinking quickly, Thor spins Mjolnir fast enough to whip up a whirlwind, which he sends at the Masked Man.
The whirlwind stuns the Masked Man, which allows Platinum to be able to grab him despite being slower than him. The shocks are enough to disrupt his charging, the PSI dissipating, and he starts to get pummeled. After a few punches though, the Masked Man brings up both of his hands to catch the one Platinum is pummeling with, and is actually somewhat able to resist, though it's clear he cannot actually compete with his kind of power.
He starts to shake a little though, and he seems to calm down due to pure exhaustion.
"Blegh." The butterfly... mutters, upon unexpectedly being let go.
Thor, upon noticing that Claus/the Masked Man was starting to calm down now due to exhaustion, raises a hand and motions for Platinum to stand down.
"Don't attack him, but... stay on your guard and prepare to act, should he still be hostile."
The whirlwind further breaking up the room and Platinum's own programming means that he just triple the power output and try to drive the Masked Man into the ground with both hands, doing so without missing a beat before attempting to keep beating the tar out of him until he's knocked out cold, or worse, as long as can still draw a "breath" afterwards
He doesn't seems to actually listen to Thor, placing the safety of the lab and the unit above everyone in the room.

"Oops, wouldya look at the time! Gotta go!"
He *bawoops* out.
He leaves the pamphlet.

Now overwhelmed, the Masked Man is punted onto the ground and beaten down some more. In a last-ditch effort, the Masked Man, while he's being beaten down, tries to raise his hand and launch a small PK Love blast at Platinum. It's not powerful enough to really destroy anything, whether it be Platinum or the room itself, but if he gets hit, he might snap out of his defensive mode to see that the Masked Man is pretty much beaten, as he's hardly moving anymore and looks like he's about to pass out, so the lab is no longer in danger.
His eyes are also starting to regain their pupils, so it's safe to say that he's no longer a problem.

The butterfly returns to floating around, albeit at a much more gradual pace.
"Oh, damn it all...!"
Thor sighs in frustration, looking about ready to use Mjolnir on Platinum... only for the Masked Man to defend himself. Noticing that the boy's eyes were regaining their pupils, he lets out a more relieved sigh before fixing the android with an annoyed glare.
"Are you finished trying to murder the boy that you agreed to help?"
He walks over to Claus's side, waiting for him to say or do something.

"YOUR ACTIONS HAVE CAUSED SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO THE LABORATORY. I CANNOT ACCEPT THIS." he says, tapping on his wrist. "YOU ARE BOTH DENIED ACCESS UNTIL YOU PROVE YOURSELF ABLE TO STEP ON IT AGAIN."
A white light surrounds Thor and Claus.
"BEGONE." says Platinum, attempting to teleport them away and out of the lab. The massive doors are closed and held tight, it seems that they will need to work to earn Platinum's trust again...
Speaking of Plat, he's standing in the wrecked room.
"THE BOY WAS AN INEPT WASTE OF TIME. A FAILURE OF A MACHINE AND AN ORGANIC LIKE ANY UNPROPER CYBORG. REMOVE SUBJECT THOR FROM THE LAB-SEARCHING LIST AND REPLACE HIM WITH A SAIYAN SUBJECT. OVER."
He then summon a broom and start to... wipe away the dust.
"THIS WILL BE LENGTHY."
Zelerie fly away in boredom.
