Gateway City

Shadows of Olympia

What seemed to be a natural fog, coming across the nearby lake to cover Gateway City, stayed unnaturally long: three weeks. Flights could not land, including the one carrying a big-name performer for White Dwarf’s circus. Vehicles could not move safely, including
delivery trucks and emergency vehicles. Some businesses simply closed until the weather cleared. Looting was rampant. Small-time criminals took opportunities created by the fog and ordinary citizens who had never committed a crime before gave into the impulse to break into a store and grab what they could.

Ilsa, Solar and White Dwarf individually decided to patrol the streets to stop what looters they could. Their patrols brought them into contact with one another, as Solar was easier to see through the fog than nearly anyone else could be. Just as they met up, a pair of alarms moved them half a block over to where two stores – almost directly across the street from each other – were being emptied. One was a pharmacy; the other was a home entertainment outlet. Solar went to the home entertainment outlet and sent the criminals home, after making those Solar could see drop the stolen goods Solar could see, while the rest escaped through the back. Ilsa and White Dwarf went to the pharmacy, where entire shelves were being emptied into carts, baskets, bags and jackets. White Dwarf managed to stop one thief with a cart, but when he went to stop the cart, the thief escaped. Ilsa tried to pursue more than one escaping criminal, but lost them when they split up in the fog. The heroes patched up the broken windows with improvised barriers, then reported to the police when they
arrived. The police considered these to be attacks of opportunity, but the heroes suspected mind control.

Ilsa examined the chemical structure of the fog, but found nothing suspicious. Solar flew upwards to examine the fog from above and saw that it centered on one edge of Gateway City. Making a concerted effort to burn away the fog, Solar wiped it away and found that it had centered on the Gateway City Airport. A police officer gave the three heroes a ride through the now empty and visible streets, to the airport, and summoned back-up to meet them there. As soon as Solar stopped concentrating, a cloud started growing where the fog had centered. Instead of turning into fog, however, it started dropping hail. Police back-up started showing up shortly after the heroes entered the airport. Solar was able to determine what in the airport was below where the cloud had started forming, and the three heroes split up to search the three floors simultaneously. White Dwarf’s reputation was critical in gaining the helpful support of Airport

Nothing suspicious could be found on the second floor, or in the basement. On the main floor, in the cafeteria, Solar noted that half the people looked travel-worn and appeared to have been camping out at the airport for several days. The other half seemed to look fresh and energized, sitting scattered amongst the tables in clean and pressed business suits. Five of the suits were lined up along the windows, looking out upon the airfield, standing directly under where the fog
had been centered and where the cloud had started to form.

Solar politely engaged the attention of these five, the centermost of whom acted as spokesman. The spokesman convincingly explained that they had been coming in every day for three weeks, and staying throughout the day, in hopes that a very important flight would come in. A multi-billion dollar business deal rested on this flight coming in speedily, and safely. Solar left these people and met up with Ilsa and White Dwarf to compare notes. While they did so, all of the people who had been looking fresh and professional in the cafeteria got up and scattered in small groups, trying to leave without drawing attention. They did not quite succeed.

White Dwarf went to confront the five suits by the window, and found the cafeteria much emptier than it had been moments before. Simultaneously, Ilsa and Solar noted some who were leaving. Ilsa
changed shape to blend in, and Solar turned bright purple and caused the air to whistle by moving through it in a particular manner. Solar had been trying to become invisible and inaudible, but had misremembered the spectra and frequencies human eyes and ears were capable of perceiving. Mistaking Solar’s change for a call to arms, Ilsa ran to join Solar in pursuing the five who had been by the window, but had then borrowed a luggage cart, and were now entering a
limo in front of the airport.

Meanwhile, White Dwarf had found a beautiful, petite, Irish woman wearing a tailored and freshly pressed business suit; she was leaning against the windows where the five suits had previously stood. He introduced himself, but the woman refused to shake his hand – citing personal superstition. She did say that her name was Jennifer, and that she was finding the chase scene playing out to be entertaining. She then very blatantly tried to bribe White Dwarf into leaving the airport alone for one more week. Her bribes grew increasingly blunt, but also increasingly pointed at White Dwarf’s weakest spots. White Dwarf resisted and left to aid his companions, but not without some emotional cost.

Ilsa flew through the doors of the airport, knocking out a revolving door, and entered the limo before the doors could be closed. Solar looked into the limo shortly after, and noted that four of the people inside were the ones who were standing by the windows, but the spokesperson was missing. In his place was a man of similar height, weight and hair colour, in a similarly coloured suit, but he was obviously not the same man. Solar looked around to see who else was
leaving, and saw many cabs full of business folk heading in different directions. Solar chose one at random and followed it.

White Dwarf bounced through the airport lobby, out the opening made by Ilsa, lectured the passengers in the limo, and slammed the door forcefully, before following Solar. Ilsa rode in the limo, and accepted a glass of champagne. A young Asian woman, who had originally been one of the four silent suits, now took the role of spokeswoman and conversed with Ilsa.

The cab went to a park, where the passengers got out to feed ducks. The limo went to a Greek restaurant, where the passengers went out and had a meal. Ilsa had no money, and so waited on the roof of the restaurant. Some hours later, four out of the five suits left the restaurant. The heroes gave descriptions of all involved to the police.

The next day, the weather went back to normal, and news broadcasts mentioned briefly that three local banks had been purchased by Olympia Financial. High ranking negotiators from these banks’ headquarters were unable to attend the meeting in person, due to flight delays.

Some days later, White Dwarf received an invoice from Olympia Financial for limo repair.

Cookbook's Big Score

A blast sounded across the downtown area! On a street overlooking Emerald Park, Cookbook leaped from the debris cloud, carrying a hockey bag stuffed with gold!

Unfortunately for the anarchist, Pacifier and The Grey Patriot were nearby. Pacifier stopped the car Cookbook had commandeered immediately, but Cookbook escaped by throwing one of his smoke bombs! Pacifier and the Grey Patriot were baffled for a moment, but then spotted the contrail left by Cookbook’s rocket pack!

Pacifier took to the skies, while the Grey Patriot hopped a cab. Luckily for the Loyalist Avenger, the cabbie was both enthusiastic and skilled (though he was taken aback when the driver plunged into the Skyplex Mall in order to get back in the chase!)

Pacifier caught up to Cookbook quickly, and grabbed onto his jetpack. Cookbook threw two grenades down onto the city, trying to distract Pacifier, but The Grey Patriot shot them from the air! Then Pacifier spun the anarchist about, to keep him occupied.

Near to passing out from vertigo, Cookbook pulled himself together just long enough to throw an explosive putty onto Pacifier’s helmet. The armored protector was stunned, though he did rip Cookbook’s jetpack apart in his shock.

As Cookbook plunged to earth, the Grey Patriot prepared to catch him. Cookbook activated his parachute first, however, so the marksman was free to shoot the hockey bag free of Cookbook’s body, and catch it. The anarchist, however, headed into the nearby alleys.

A bad move, as the Grey Patriot, half ghost, was not frustrated by walls. He caught up to Cookbook quickly, and then brought a large billboard down with a pair of well-placed shots from his mystical flintlocks. Pacifier landed soon after.

Cookbook struggled, but he was unable to prevail against the pair. Pacifier’s sonic stunner sent him reeling, and then a shot from the Patriot incapacitated him (without serious harm).

Pacifier called the police. As the pair waited for Cookbook to be taken into custody, three men in purple suits showed up. The leader claimed to be Jareth Dunsany, and asked for his gold back. A quick call to the police confirmed that it was the Castle Building which had been broken into, and so the pair handed over the loot. Dunsany thanked them and departed.

The cops showed up soon after, and took Cookbook in. They did, however, mention that they weren’t pleased with the heroes handing over evidence, even if it was to the rightful owner.

Talismonger Must Die!!!

When Alec O’Connor, the star forward of the Longshoremen, disappeared off the field during a match, it was inevitable that Talismonger would get involved. The fact that Flashpoint was at the game was an unexpected bonus.

Talismonger quickly cast a spell to locate the soccer star, and the two leapt off in hot pursuit. As Flashpoint approached the van driving madly towards the docks, rockets were launched from it at the surrounding buildings. Talismonger flash-froze the rockets, while Flashpoint grabbed O’Connor and cut him free of us bonds.

At that moment, a distant figure launched a high-tech net at Talismonger, catching him and shocking him with high voltage at the same time. Luckily, Flashpoint was able to free Talismonger, but when the two set off to apprehend the shooter, he disappeared in an explosion that left an anarchy symbol behind.

The two heroes made up their minds to track Cookbook to his lair. Talismonger homed in on him, and then teleported them to…a black room filled with water to knee-height. Cookbook’s voice filled the blackness, taunting Talismonger. Then the room exploded into flame!

Between Talismonger’s reality-warping presence and Flashpoint’s quick reactions, the two were unharmed, and began looking for an exit. Flashpoint found a hatch on the ceiling, and managed to get through it without setting off the explosive that Cookbook had rigged.

The heroes emerged into the cargo-monitoring station of a ship, whose now-empty hold they had just been in. Cookbook once again mocked the duo, setting off charges to rip a hole in the hull and flood the compartment. Talismonger used his magic to keep the water out, while Flashpoint identified the ship as the William Baldwin, and determined that it was holed, and most likely at the bottom of the lake.

Talismonger suggested they leave the room, which they did by a hole Talismonger created in the wall, avoiding the certainly-boobytrapped door. The next room had electrified floors, but Flashpoint spotted something wrong, and used an insulated chair to move around, while Talismonger merely flew.

Growing tired of both Cookbook’s death traps and his heckling, our heroes decided to leave the ship entirely, preferably on to Cookbook’s true location. Upon attempting to locate the anaarchist, however, Talismonger discovered that a magical ward had been placed over the ship by none other than the Goblin King. The faerie magic was insufficient to keep Talismonger from tracking Cookbook to his lair, however.

With his nemesis’ hand in the plot revealed, Talismonger considered for a moment. He drew forth a black pearl, and warned Flashpoint “When I say run, run.” He then opened a hole in the side of the ship, and hurled the pearl at it. The spell of disenchantment worked long enough for the pair to escape. They made a beeline for Cookbook’s lair, but he had already left, leaving them one last surprise (which again failed to harm the agile Flashpoint).

Not Street Legal

The mayor has been attacked at the opening of the Gateway City Auto Expo! Reports say that a gang of thugs busted in with souped-up cars, took control of the Expo, and forced Mayor Bennett to take refuge in a back room.

Pacifier, January and Reflex responded to Nick Tyler’s call for supers to help deal with the ringleader of the gang, described as “wearing a Trans Am on his chest”. The heroes entered the Millennium Center behind a SWAT team led by Tyler, making short work of the guards there. They then went in search of the mayor, while Tyler and his crew began retaking the Center.

Entering the New Car display hall, the three crossed it in a blink, confronting a group of the gang members blocking access to a door. Pacifier took them down with one of his Electro-Nets, but they delayed the heroes long enough for others to come up behind them. The heroes had to fight the gangers (armed with some kind of energy-slug shotguns) off, but between Pacifier’s electro-nets and Reflex’s explosive discus, they soon had the upper hand. January took a hit from one of the guns that left a hole in her midsection, but she shrugged off what would have been a lethal wound for the living, and kept going without a blink.

Working their way to the room where the mayor was holed up, they met up with thicker opposition, though no more challenging. Bypassing the gangers with a display of athletics, Reflex came face-to-face with the gangleader, who called himself Motorhead. The gangleader came out swinging, but Reflex dodged away while keeping up a line of banter.

Meanwhile, January had supercharged herself, and came flying in. She altered Motorhead’s metabolism to take away his unnatural strength. Unfortunately, his technokinetic control made the alteration a brief one. Regretfully, January drained Motorhead’s energy, bringing him low within moments.

In the meantime, Pacifier mopped up the rest of the gang members, who were no match for his sonic stunner and electro-nets. Reflex broke from the fight with Motorhead to assist Chief Manning and her security detail repel the attacks of the animated office machinery who were swarming the barricades where Mayor Bennett and his entourage had taken refuge.

With Motorhead down, the rest of his gang surrendered. Deputy Chief Tyler caught up with the team just as the mayor congratulated them on a job well-done.

Hard Day's Fight

The heroes were called on by Captain Henderson of the GCPD as support in a hostage situation. An armoured man had taken BioNext Medical Research hostage, and wired several floors with explosives in order to prevent being disturbed.

January, Talismonger and Keil, the Last Caveman responded to the call. After conferring, Talismonger used his magic to determine the location of the bombs. In addition, he determined that the building had not been fully evacuated, which Henderson confirmed. Keil snuck into the building to begin evacuating people on the sly. Talismonger had another idea.

The Master of the Mystical pulled out a flying carpet and moved to the window of BioNext. He got Hardcase’s attention by shouting at him. This provoked a rocket shot, which did more damage to the building opposite than to Talismonger. The Irish Conjuror kept baiting Hardcase, distracting him from Keil’s activities. Unfortunately, he also enraged the desperate criminal, who was trying to keep Dr. Timothy McGregor working on something. Talismonger was “taken into custody” by Henderson (who was annoyed at the hero’s lack of consideration for the dangers, even as he admitted the distraction worked).

While this little drama was going on, January had made Hardcase an offer: allow them to evacuate the civilians, and they would let him be. She went into the building, and began evcuating the upper floors (while Keil worked on the lower ones).

When they had the building almost evacuated, Hardcase ripped a hole in the wall, and left, with Dr. McGregor (chained to some kind of briefcase) over his shoulder. The heroes swung into action. Tailsmonger teleported in front of the thug, while Keil mounted Talismonger’s flying carpet to swoop above and behind the powersuited criminal.

Talismonger rushed past, throwing his own teleportation amulet around Dr. McGregor’s neck and transporting him back to the police base camp. At the same time, Keil leaped on Hardcase’s back, trying to subdue the thug. When Hardcase fought back, Keil decided enough was enough – he ripped the armour apart like he would fighting a clubtail. Talismonger tossed a charm that paralyzed the man in the suit.

Unfortunately, this left Keil in mid-air, holding on to a no-longer flying suit. Keil, in a stunning feat of acrobatics, brought himself and the criminal safely to the gound, while Talismonger prevented the bottom half of the suit from crashing and exploding.

The two heroes returned to the base station with the criminal in tow. They handed him over to the authorities, and Keil issued a final warning: “Do not defy my chief – this jungle is under the protection of Keil!”. This set Hardcase off, and he was hauled away ranting and swearing revenge against the Last Caveman.

RadioActives Attack!
Introducing ILSA!

A call goes out for heroes to aid the police. There has been a theft at a government-run research lab, and super-criminals are involved!

Jeneal and Talismonger arrive on the scene, to see a large hole blown in the building, with a hazmat containment tent erected over it. Jeneal is somewhat unwelcome by Captain Henderson, but Talismonger is a sight for sore eyes. He briefs them both on the trio of villains who broke in and stole a prototype particle accelerator. Or rather, he tries. Jeneal heads off inside immediately, forcing Henderson to shout after him that the criminals have already fled.

The two heroes are about to take off in pursuit, when they are interrupted by another threat. A police officer checking ID stopped someone in a hazmat suit from entering the building. When thwarted, the…being transformed into an androgynous, featureless grey humanoid with wings, and tried to fly away. Talismonger caught the being, while Jeneal attempted to subdue it. When her attempts failed, Talismonger transported the being, insisting that it must be allowed to enter the building, into a detention van parked nearby.

Once the crime scene was secured, Talismonger and Jeneal began to search for the criminals. Talismonger located them in Emerald Park, and teleported the two of them there.

The RadioActives were caught unawares, preparing their next move. Jeneal struck at Roentgen, stunning him with pain, while Talismonger unleashed a powerful blast of psychic energy that incapacitated Carcinoma, the Living Tumour and shocked the other two. Blast Shadow reacted by teleporting the RadioActives to the Gamma Realm to recover.

Back at the crime scene, Ilsa had managed to convince Captain Henderson to hear it out. Reciting its origin, it convinced him to trust it, and that it was on the side of right. Confirming its story through other channels, Henderson gave Ilsa permission to track down the others.

Meanwhile, Talismonger had rummaged up a hoop that would allow the heroes to teleport together to track the villains. Ilsa joined them just as they departed, and the three of them penetrated into the Gamma Realm. However, the RadioActives had already departed for Dr. Radiotron’s desert laboratory, a site familiar to Talismonger. He tracked them down, and they departed the strange home of Blast Shadow.

The heroes arrived in the midst of an ambush, but one they had anticipated. Talismonger transported them each into close combat with one of the RadioActives. In psite of their powerful abilities, the RadioActives proved difficult foes. In the end, both Roentgen and Carcinoma was captured, while Blast Shadow was catapulted back into the Gamma Realm, trapped in that strange dimension…for the time being.

Winter's Hunger - Part 2
Rise, the Hungerer!!!

When we last left our heroes…

Sitting in the appropriated Staff Lounge of St. Jude’s Hospital, John Twoyoungmen explained the next step to the assembled heroes (January, Talismonger, and the newly-arrived Pillar), and GCPD Commander Nick Tyler.

“In the old, old days, Nanabush tricked Gisinibi, who was hungry enough to eat everything, in to going to sleep. Then he put a blanket over him that was so thick that Gisinibi would never wake. But sometimes Gisinibi kicks off part of the blanket. That’s when the winter gets really strong, and nobody would venture out on Gitchie Gumee.

“When Nanabush taught my people the ways of the Mediwiwin, he gave us a ritual to lull Gisinibi back to sleep, if he started waking up. Only two problems with that: we’ve got to be right near wherever he’s waking up, and he’s probably gonna be real cranky with us when we do.”

The first problem was easily solved by Talismonger, who scryed the depths of the lake, and located the rift through which Gisinibi was entering this world from the Spirit World. Unfortunately, this also attracted the Hungerer’s attention, and a mystical blizzard sprang up across the Great Lakes, lashing the area with snow, wind and waves.

The heroes waited while Twoyoungmen assembled his Mediwiwin medicine people from across the area. Only one, Mary, had to make the dangerous trek across the lakes, so Talismonger went to bring her in. A good thing he was there, for the unnatural storm had frozen the Mackinack Bridge to the point of fragility. Talismonger thawed the bridge, driving back Gisinibi’s power, and then teleported himself and Mary back to Gateway City.

Once the seven shamans were assembled, Cmdr. Tyler arranged for a boat to take them to the ice-island being formed by Gisinibi’s rift, then remained on shore to coordinate any rescure efforts. The seven shamans and three superheroes bundled up and took to the stormy waters of Gitchie Gumee.

The Coast Guard captain’s skill was up to the daunting task, and soon the heroes were at the strange island that had formed out of the cold emanating from the depths. As the Mediwiwin circle began their ritual, Gisinibi let loose the full power of his storm upon them. They erected mystical protections, but they were paltry things, and were on the verge of falling when Talismonger intervened.

He deflected one of Gisinibi’s attacks, then set a far more powerful shield over the shamans, woven of rainbows and promising access to a land of eternal Summer. With the ritualists safe, the heroes turned their eyes outwards…

The next assault came cold on the heels of the last. More of Gisinibi’s hungry dead climbed out of the lake, swarming the heroes. With a slam of his fist, Pillar sent half of them back into the chill waters. January used her strange touch to weaken and then drain them. Talismonger drove those foes attacking him back, and then spotted more emerging from the depths. He sent a wave of eldritch flame into the depths. It destroyed many of the drowned corpses, but also unbalanced the island.

As the heroes fought on, Gisinibi himself rose from the depths, a terrifying creature whose head and shoulders dwarfed even Pillar. This terrifying, ancient god nearly paralyzed the heroes with fear, but Talismonger shored up their strength and they fought on. Next, they faced Gisinibi’s chill breath. Already mystically protected from the unnatural cold, they weathered the storm, and went on the counter-attack.

Talismonger lashed the Hungerer’s eyes with lightning, blinding him briefly. Vanquishing the last of the attacking corpses, January had Talismonger teleport her onto Gisinibi. Standing on the behemoth’s shoulder, she sapped his unnatural might, leaving him only with his great bulk as a weapon. Pillar then summoned a rock spire, and rode it up to strike a mighty blow to the Hungerer.

Staggered, Gisinibi was unable to mount any further attack on the chanting shamans. Their lullaby grew in strength, and they cast their power as a blanket over Gisinibi, returning him to his cold slumber.

As Gisinibi fell into dreaming once more, the skies over Gateway City cleared, and the lake was lulled from its unnatural fury. The Coast Guard ship returned to a heroes’ welcome, for the people of Gateway City knew they had been spared a terrible fate by the bravery of those aboard.

Winter's Hunger - Part 1
"The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead..."

It was a cold night in Gateway City. The kind of night that tells you winter is here. The docks were deserted, save for one old man with a bottle in his hand. The old man looked up from his drunker reverie, out onto the vast, choppy expanse of the lake. His eyes opened wide in shock, and he screamed.

The quiet of the night was shattered by the crash of the vast, hulking ship slamming into the wooden pier, ripping it apart. The old man was covered with the debris. Frost covered the rusting sides of the ship as it lay on the shore.

January and Talismonger were called on by the GCPD to assist in the investigation of the boat crash. One sailor had been recovered from the ship, identified as the William Baldwin, a merchant ship missing for four months.

January began by examining the sailor, who had unusual symptoms. She examined him and found him waterlogged, malnourished and suffering from incipient scurvy. She also found his life being sustained by some strange, alien life-force she had never before encountered. Using her powers to restore what she could of his condition, the man was still left frozen-cold and tinged a strange blue-green.

In the meantime, both Talismonger and Commander Nick Tyler were examining the ship. Talismonger, concerned with reports of ghosts by the lone witness, examined the decks but could find nothing conclusive. Tyler, on the other hand, noticed several watery footprints, as well as torn scraps of cloth from a sailor’s parka.

Talismonger turned his attention to the half-drowned sailor. Using one of his talismans, he tried to trace the source of the strange energies. He found himself in contact with a distant and cold entity, a being of pure hunger and malice. He collapsed briefly, babbling in a strange language than Tyler was able to identify as Ojibway. Two words among the unknown were recognizable by GC’s favorite son: Nishkiskade Gisinibi.

The Master of the Magical was able to pull himself together, and banished the strange energies from the sailor’s body. He was also able to translate the rest of the Ojbiway litany. It was an incoherent muddle, speaking of a great power of ice and storm, a hungry god exiled from this world by the ancient hero Nanabush.

Talismonger made a call, saying he knew someone who might be able to help. The three heroes’ vigil was delayed by a call on the police radio. Strange figures had been involved in an assault and kidnapping. Responding to the call, the heroes headed off five figures, dripping water and dragging two men towards the lake. These five were lurching corpses, animated only by the cold and hungry power that they had exorcised from the sailors.

Commander Tyler mustered the police attempting to capture the creatures, while January weakened them and Talismonger struck them down with lightning. No sooner had the heroes made quick work of this group, however, than reports came in of others roaming the city, dragging people back towards the lake.

The hours between then and dawn were full, but the heroes managed to prevent the waterlogged zombies from dragging any of Gateway’s citizens into the freezing depths. As dawn came, the heroes met at St. Jude’s Hospital. They were found there by a Native man with chiseled features.

“My name is John Twoyoungmen. The Irish feller called me. Gisinibi has woken, and we will need to put him back to sleep. Otherwise, he will devour us all.”

To be continued…

Night of the Living Morgue

Strange things were happening all over the city.

The Tao was dealing with a series of robberies at Happy Zap Electronics in Chinatown when a naked woman attempted to break into a nearby store. Her head had been stove in, and she was mumbling about a sale. Yang attempted to heal her, and while he restored her lucidity, he was unable to either heal her head wound or do anything about her lack of pulse! The Tao took the woman to the nearest hospital,St. Jude’s.

At the same time, Jeneal was looking into the theft of a state-of-the-art diagnostic bed for coma patients. She encountered a number of similarly-shambling hooligans in the street. After subduing them, she reported them to the authorities, and was asked to come to St. Jude’s Hospital.

All the while, January had been dealing with a crisis. Apparently, the entire contents (population?) of the morgue had got up and walked away! Reports were coming in about people meeting the description of the missing corpses being sighted in a variety of places.

Recaptured corpses came in at a trickle, including those escorted by Jeneal and the Tao. Under January’s astute gaze, she determined that while they had been animated, they were not truly alive (much as the good doctor herself). Moreover, they were (except for the woman Yang had treated) all incoherent. The question was then: what to do about them?

The Tao, probing the chi of the room, determined that the same event had animated all the corpses, a discharge of energy from a far corner (out of sight of the cameras). Checking a nearby closet revealed the missing diagnostic bed, highly-modified with parts from Happy Zap!

A decision was made: the incoherent animates would be restored to their fully-deceased state by January and Yang. The woman was given the choice, and chose to grapple with her new condition.

While all of this was going on, someone had come to “return” the bed to the coma ward! Running after the “orderly”, the heroes quickly detained him and prevented his removing the bed. At that point, he dropped all pretense, gloating about how amazing his accomplishment had been. Disgusted, the heroes handed him over to the police.

As they took him away, he gave them a card. On it? Nothing except the picture of a jaguar.

Recipe for Anarchy
Cookbook mixes up some trouble at the UN, resulting in more chaos than even he can handle!

Pacifier, Talismonger, White Dwarf, Reflex and Nightstick responded to an emergency call.

ARSENAL troopers showed up.

Cookbook’s a dick.

Talismonger turned him into a chimp.

This is a placeholder for when I don’t have a headache.
