Arc One: Before the Storm


It was a cool spring morning, but summer was on the way. You could see it in the way that people were dressing, in the sales in store windows, in the hopeful uncovering of barbecues and swimming pools, and in the music playing from car radios.

This was no normal summer, however. For all that things seemed to be gearing up as usual, a pall hung over the city of New Ivansburg: a not insignificant place of about four million somewhere between the bustling Northeast and that dubiously idyllic land known only as 'The South'. In council chambers, the city's leaders conferred frantically, searching for a solution, the usual partisan barbs and jabs temporarily put on hold. They had even contacted the federal government. The President had personally visited.

Outside, there was a palpable nervousness. People paid a little more critical attention to the news in their social media feeds. They glanced over their shoulders. They looked towards the police officers patrolling the streets with a bit more assurance and deference than usual. Taxi and rideshare services had seen a boost. Late night entertainments, not so much.

It was because they had disappeared. The Liberty Corps: legendary names like Genesis, Fortunate Son, and Volta. People discussed and debated, tossing various theories at each other without really having any proof. It was the second stage of a panic: the one where you stopped denying that there was a problem and started naively thinking that you could get to the bottom of whatever had caused it. Truth is, nobody knew who the enemy was, if he even existed, and if he might be watching. Some tongues flapped carelessly, unguarded in thought or action, while others counseled themselves to remain more circumspect.

It was under this shadow that ten strangers stood at the summit of Liberty Mountain - not much more than a self-important hill, to be perfectly honest - and waited in the cavernously empty anteroom of a truly imposing structure. Surrounding them were stained glass windows three stories high, tickers and holographic displays, and life-sized statues of men and women, both alive and consigned to memory. They were heroes. Or had been. Now they were gone.

The ten stood there in their places. Most may have had an inkling why. They were not sure for what they waited but, perhaps they would know when they saw it...

Information and Bulletins


The Liberty Corps

Founded in the city of New Ivansburg by Liberty Man himself in the year 1952, The Liberty Corps has always stood for freedom: freedom from fear, scarcity, and oppression of all and any kind. The Corps believes that, by bringing together extraordinary individuals from as many different backgrounds as possible, it can represent the values that it espouses every day in the field, through its words and deeds alike, shining as a beacon for others to follow. The Corps believes in justice and stands ready and willing to fight for that belief. However, it does not and will never condone intentional killing or ends-justify-the-means morality. In the words of Liberty Man himself, "Once you start to compromise your values, are they really your own anymore?" The following individuals comprise the Corps' current membership. We are proud to count each of them among our own.

Full Members


Atlas: Do you understand the gravity of the situation?

Birth Name: Thiago Gonçalves

Age: 16

Active: 2019-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: Brazilian

Birthplace: Belem, Para, Brazil

City of Residence: Belem, Para, Brazil

Powers: Can manipulate the pull of gravity, reversing, weakening, or intensifying it wherever he wishes within his field of view.

Appearance: A wiry teenager of mixed Hispanic descent, Thiago has dark brown eyes to match his loosely curled black hair and deeply tanned skin. His mouth is unusually large, with a magnificent row of pearly whites. He may be on the small side, but he is phenomenally athletic. In terms of dressing style, he's most comfortable wearing black track pants, running shoes, and a loose, sleeveless white T-shirt.

Fortunate Son: I laugh in the face of danger!

Birth name: (Victor) Hu Gang

Age: 43

Active: 1997-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: Chinese

Birthplace: Wulingyuan, Hunan, China

City of Residence: Xuhui, Shanghai, China

Occupation: Corporate executive

Powers: the indestructible man. He cannot be killed or harmed in any way. Powers of mind control and suggestion do not work on him at all. Otherwise, he has no superpowers whatsoever, despite being a fabulously wealthy tycoon.

Appearance: Victor is an Asian man with lightly tanned skin, dark brown eyes, and short black hair (peppered with silver around the temples) in his early forties, though most people think that he looks somewhat younger. He’s clean-shaven and usually well-dressed, of average to slightly below average height and, low-key, in excellent shape. He would not stand out one bit in a large crowd.

Fractal: Double or nothing?

Birth Name: Janine Jellicoe

Age: 24

Active: 2015-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: San Francisco, USA

City of Residence: New Ivansburg, USA

Occupation: student

Powers: Janine's a terrific space-warper. She can split into multiple clones, all of whom can teleport. Each clone is fully autonomous and can act independently, though they must be within a kilometer of at least one other clone or they will disappear.

Appearance: Honestly trends kind of "basic white girl", but with just enough hint of artsy and bohemian flair to not be boring. Janine's rather petite. While she doesn't stand out much in a crowd with her wavy brown hair and grey-brown eyes, she takes care of herself, so I guess you could say she's not bad looking. When fighting crime, she dresses for comfort and practicality, with just a dash of bright colour, usually in a subtle rainbow pattern, for personal flare.

Genesis: I am whatever you say I am.

Birth name: Ameyo Peprah

Age: 32

Active: 2007-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: Ghanaian

Birthplace: Kumasi, Ashanti, Ghana

City of Residence: Accra, Ghana

Former Occupation: bank teller

Powers: Can change the molecular constitution of objects, both living and non-living, by touching them, essentially transmuting them. She can only transmute them into things that she has touched before. She cannot transmute complex objects made of multiple different substances into a single one.

Appearance: Ameyo is a dark-skinned African woman with long black hair worn in dreadlocks that are often pulled back in a ponytail or a loose bun. While not exceptionally tall, she is somewhat above average height, and reasonably fit, with high, prominent cheekbones, a receded chin, and a heart-shaped face. She prefers long skirts and loose-fitting tops when not at work, where she dresses professionally and conservatively.

Holy Diver: You've been down too long in the midnight sea!

Birth Name: Victor Pangilinan

Age: 35

Active: 2000-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: Filipino

Birthplace: Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines

City of Residence: Valletta, Malta or Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

Powers: Can 'purify' any liquid, reverting it back to a state of being clean, uncontaminated water. Can breathe underwater, move through it freely and fluidly and, when focusing and praying with intensity, can endow it with healing properties, heat it to boiling, or create massive storm surges and great waves.

Appearance: A small, stocky man of Filipino ethnicity, Victor is deeply tanned and unremarkable of appearance. He is always clean-shaven and wears his hair short and nearly-trimmed. He favours dressing in fairly conservative clothing, often in light colours, especially white, though he'll be found in board shorts fairly often as well. Victor is rarely seen without a simple wooden cross around his neck, and it's often paired with a wide-brimmed straw hat.

Kingmaker: With great power comes great responsibility.

Birth Name: Peter Ngiraked

Age: 29

Active: 2012-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: Palauan

Birthplace: Olkang, Kayangel, Palau

City of Residence: Olkang, Kayangel, Koror

Powers: Can temporarily grant and borrow powers and abilities from people and animals, redistributing them to others, including himself.

Appearance: Peter is a large, heavyset man of Micronesian Pacific Islander descent with deeply tanned skin and close-cropped black hair. He’s actually not particularly tall, but just seems to appear larger than he really is. He has a large, welcoming, gap-toothed smile and can usually be found wearing board shorts and a couple of bead necklaces. Shirts are only for Sunday church services.

Maven: Truth is in the eye of the beholder...

Birth Name: (April) Hu Hui

Age: 18

Active: 2018-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: Chinese

Birthplace: Xuhui, Shanghai, China

City of Residence: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Occupation: Student

Powers: Has the ability to learn all that there is to know about any subject or skill of her choosing. Can only have up to seven at a time. Can also learn the absolute truth about people and their intentions. She is otherwise a bog-standard human.

Appearance: A petite teen of Asian extraction, April has long black hair, pale skin, and dark brown eyes. When wearing makeup, she looks startlingly different than when not wearing any. Though far from physically intimidating, she gives off an aura of aggressive competence. While April bears doesn't bear a particularly strong resemblance to her father, she shares his level of fitness and penchant for dressing sharply.

Revenant: The night is dark and full of terrors.

Birth Name: Winona King

Age: 40

Active: 1996-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: American (Lakota)

Birthplace: Rapid City, South Dakota, USA

City of Residence: Chicago, Illinois, USA

Former Occupation: Rancher

Powers: Can manipulate and inhabit shadows, can control people through their shadows. Has limited abilities to control literal darkness and light.

Appearance: Tall and striking, Winona is possessed of sharp features, piercing grey eyes, and high cheekbones. She seemingly does everything that she can to make the least of these, with weathered, leather-coloured skin and long black hair (shot through with a grey streak) pulled back into a simple ponytail. Except when on official Liberty Corps duty, she is almost never found not wearing jeans, work boots, and a simple rust-red sleeveless vest.

Timeline: It could happen, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Birth Name: Hanna Kovalenko

Age: 21

Active: 2014-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: Canadian

Birthplace: Korosten, Zhytomyr, Ukraine

City of Residence: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)

Occupation: undergraduate university student

Powers: A time manipulator, she can pause time by closing her eyes and thinking the word “stop” in Ukrainian, rewind it by holding her breath, and preview future events by going to the places where they will occur and making physical contact with affected objects.

Appearance: Hannah is a young, fair-skinned Caucasian woman with bright blue eyes and long, straight blonde hair. Her apple-pie appearance belies the fact that she’s actually pretty ‘ethnic’ and speaks fluent Ukrainian. She looks and dresses like a pretty college white girl who knows that she's pretty, with perfectly done makeup and flattering clothes. Her Liberty Corps outfit is designed to emphasize her secondary name: Hourglass.

Volta: Turnabout's fair play!

Birth Name: Ciro Volta

Age: 26

Active: 2013-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: Italian

Birthplace: Florence, Tuscany, Italy

City of Residence: New York, New York, USA

Occupation: Master’s student in Physics, varsity soccer player

Powers: an energy redirector. He can redirect any form or amount of energy, be it magnetic, kinetic, chemical, or thermal in any direction that he chooses. Generally, he can do so without injury, though attacks that bypass his ability can injure him as he is otherwise a regular guy.

Appearance: Ciro is a young Caucasian man with lightly tanned skin, green-brown eyes, and artfully shaggy wavy dark brown hair. He’s clean shaven except for a small, well-trimmed goatee. He’s noticeably taller than average height, with a lean, athletic build. Most people consider him strikingly handsome, and he’s mastered the art of dressing with an effortless style that straddles the line between haute couture and bohemian.

Malatesta (Stregha Nona): Evil Thoughts, Good Deeds

Birth Name: Sandra Malatesta

Age: 82

Active: 1965-2002 (1953-1964 in the Dread Legion)

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Castelforte, Lazio, Italy

City of Residence: New Ivansburg, Delaware, USA

Occupation: retired (former member of the Liberty Corps and the Dread Legion)

Powers: Once an immensely powerful evil sorceress who singlehandedly took on the entire Liberty Corps, she turned her back on those dark ways, placing an unbreakable curse on herself so that she would gradually forget offensive magic. While this took years and, reformed, she served in the Liberty Corps for a time, she retains only utility and fairly basic spells nowadays: transmutation, translocation, healing, and very limited telekinesis and heat manipulation.

Appearance: One of the few non-chunky nonnas that you’ll encounter, Sandra looks like your typical old Italian woman, with a thick head of wispy white hair that categorically attempts to resist all and any control not consisting of a hairclip and bun approach. She was once a ravishing beauty known for dressing provocatively, but now she favours relatively conservative dresses in old world patterns.

Ranger

Birth Name: Richard (Dick) Cody

Age: (76 at death - 2010)

Active: 1960-2002

Gender: Male

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Eureka, Kansas, USA

City of Residence: New Ivansburg, Delaware, USA

Occupation: Retired (former member of the Liberty Corps)

Powers: When he was younger, Hank could stretch and skew his body in unbelievable ways, using himself as a rope, parachute, slingshot, and shock absorber, as well as decelerating bullets and slipping through incredibly small spaces with ease. He could split himself into millions of gossamer-thin threads to hide or accelerate things with unbelievable kinetic energy. He can still do most of these things, but without nearly the stamina nor the flexibility of his youth.

Appearance: An elderly Caucasian man, Hank still has a full head of well-trimmed gray hair and hints of the impressive physique that he boasted in his younger years. Tired blue eyes peer out from beneath slightly droopy lids. Always clean-shaven, he usually dresses in conservative 'old man clothes'. However, he can occasionally be spotted wearing his superhero costume or a black leather jacket, white t-shirt, and blue jeans.

Treering: We grow through our struggles, in strength, wisdom, and conviction

Birth Name: Jennifer Allen-Arbor

Age: 76

Active: 1961-1998

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Saginaw, Michigan, USA

City of Residence: Saginaw, Michigan, USA

Occupation: Retired (former member of the Liberty Corps)

Powers: her power lets her produce thin layers of a super-strong wonder material from her skin, along with super strength and speed the more layers she has on. While she is still able to use her powers to some extent, they have weakened considerably with age.

Appearance: Jennifer has aged well, with her once long blonde hair now a vivid white and worn chin-length with a slight wave. She retains the vigorous, active demeanor of her youth as much as possible, and remains slim and in excellent shape for her age. While the more hippie-styled clothing of her early years is no longer in evidence, she can usually be found dressing in loose, comfortable activewear in colorful pastels.

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Busan, South Korea

City of Residence: Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Occupation: market analyst

Powers: Can direct powerful psychic smacks at targets that she curses and swears at. The louder and viler the curse, the more powerful the smack.

Appearance: A relatively petite Asian woman in her early thirties, Serena looks and dresses the definition of professionally domestic. Her straight black hair is worn slightly past shoulder-length, her makeup is usually flawless but never overwhelming, and her clothing usually tends towards business casual.

David: in search of a Goliath

Birth Name: Daniel Werner

Active: 2014-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Hartford, Conneticut, USA

City of Residence: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Occupation: university student – pre-med

Powers: When using a slingshot, will always strike his target and will strike it with the necessary force to achieve his goal. However, his goal must be selfless and he must remain pure of heart and intention.

Appearance: a lanky but handsome Caucasian man in his early twenties, Daniel has wavy dirty blonde hair worn just on the respectable side of ‘shaggy’. He dresses like either a bit of a hipster, though there’s nothing over the top, or like he’s going to the gym. He can often be found rollerblading, usually with his wireless headphones on.

Flock: In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.

Birth Name: Shawn Martins-Wellman

Age: 44

Active: 1994-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

City of Residence: New Ivansburg, USA

Occupation: garbage collector

Powers: Can commune with and control birds within a radius of ten kilometers. Can send and receive messages through birds.

Appearance: Scruffy-looking middle-aged African-American man. He’s a bit above average height and in good shape. His hair is usually worn in a short afro, shot through with a handful of grey streaks. His usual attire consists of either work boots or worn-out sneakers, cargo pants or sweat pants, and some sort of t-shirt, with an army green jacket thrown over it in the winter.

Hackslash: Wal-Mart Wolverine

Birth Name: Maryanne Sharma

Age: 27

Active: 2011-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

City of Residence: Washington, District of Columbia, USA

Occupation: Pharmaceutical laboratory assistant

Powers: has indestructible fingernails that can only be cut or manipulated through her own voluntary actions. They remain indestructible even after being cut.

Appearance: Maryanne looks like your average, reasonably attractive young South Asian woman, with long wavy black hair, bright makeup and, unfortunately, a bit of a ‘resting bitchface’. Her fingernails are always interestingly painted, and her attire varies between clinical when at work and faux-bohemian/free-spirited when outside of it.

Headcase: Just because it's all in your head doesn't mean it's not real!

Birth Name: Fatima Al-Khatib

Age: 28

Active: 2012-2017

Nationality: Syrian (Landed Immigrant Status in the USA)

Birthplace: Aleppo, Syria

City of Residence: New York, New York, USA

Occupation: mental health center patient (formerly a high-school art and photography teacher and part-time member of the Liberty Corps)

Powers: has a photographic memory and can reproduce a temporary exact copy of anything that she sees from a ‘hammerspace’ inside of her head. Unfortunately, she has shown symptoms of acute schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and dissociative amnesia.

Appearance: Fatima is a tall, slim Arabic woman in her late twenties, with lightly tanned skin, large brown eyes, and long black hair that is sometimes hidden beneath a hijab. She would be considered quite conventionally attractive were it not for her often disheveled appearance and the sometimes-blank look in her eyes.

Kamikaze: You can't escape your destiny

Birth Name: Francis Takehara

Age: 40

Active: 1997-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: American

Birthplace: San Francisco, California, USA

City of Residence: Nagasaki, Japan

Occupation: head automotive engineer at [REDACTED]

Powers: can tie his life essence to that of another person, either saving them from death or killing them by dying himself.

Appearance: Francis is the very definition of the modern young corporate executive. An Asian man of average height, his hair is worn styled and peppered with the slightest hint of gray at the temples, with a short, similarly-coloured beard to compliment it. He wears brand name thick-rimmed glasses and a casual fitted suit when at work and a jogging or gym outfit most often when outside.

Laughterhouse: I laugh in the face of Danger! Or, uh, it laughs in my face, actually...

Birth Name: Rhiannon Grant

Age: 51

Active: 2009-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Baltimore, Maryland, USA

City of Residence: New York, New York, USA

Occupation: Comedian and talk show host

Powers: Can make anybody laugh by looking at them and thinking something funny. The strength and endurance of the laughter depends on just how funny the thought is and how long she looks at them.

Appearance: A somewhat heavyset African-American woman, Rhiannon wears her hair short and loosely curled. She has been said to have a friendly, welcoming face, but this can quickly become stern under the wrong circumstances. Despite her fame and wealth, she can most often be found dressed casually in a pair of blue jeans and a loose off-the-shoulder top.

Orange Marauder: Orange Juice is a great source of vitamin C!

Birth Name: Jenna Herrera-Testaverde

Age: 41

Active: 1994-2000, 2010-present

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

City of Residence: Fort Worth, Texas, USA

Occupation: part-time consultant and stay-at-home mom

Powers: Can manipulate all and any fruit or vegetable juice within a ten-kilometer radius. Can also generate different types of juice equal to the total volume of available water within that same radius. Is able to manipulate the properties of orange juice with greater precision.

Appearance: Jenna looks, to all the world, like a completely average early-middle-aged Caucasian (or maybe Hispanic) mom straight out of suburbia, though she’s quite a fitness freak. She even drives a Porsche Cayenne. Her dark brown hair has a slight wave to it and is often worn just over shoulder-length or in a ponytail. She dresses like…a soccer mom. Indeed, her two children are both enrolled in houseleague programs.

Recoil: You can't escape the long, long, long arm of the law!

Birth Name: Hank O’Meara

Age: 78

Active:1960-2002

Gender: Male

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Eureka, Kansas, USA

City of Residence: New Ivansburg, Delaware, USA

Occupation: Retired (former member of the Liberty Corps)

Powers: When he was younger, Hank could stretch and skew his body in unbelievable ways, using himself as a rope, parachute, slingshot, and shock absorber, as well as decelerating bullets and slipping through incredibly small spaces with ease.

Appearance: An elderly Caucasian man, Hank still has a full head of well-trimmed gray hair and hints of the impressive physique that he boasted in his younger years. Tired blue eyes peer out from beneath slightly droopy lids. Always clean-shaven, he usually dresses in conservative 'old man clothes'. However, he can occasionally be spotted wearing his superhero costume or a black leather jacket, white t-shirt, and blue jeans.

Rolling Thunder (Blue Lightning): Fastest Human being in the world, just... with an asterisk

Birth Name: Amber Kovalenko

Age: 18

Active: 2014-2015, 2018-present

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

City of Residence: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Occupation: high school student

Powers: Able to access the speed force, like The Flash, allowing her to move and react at hyper-human speeds and to do so with extreme (and, frankly, unrealistic) durability. However, as a paraplegic, she is incapable of any movement or feeling below her waist.

Appearance: Amber is everything that her sister isn't, which is ironic given that they get along fairly well. Her long blonde hair is dyed black, with an ever-changing streak of some other bright colour. Her skin is a canvas of tattoos, accompanied by an abundance of black eyeliner. Piercings abound: ears, nose, eyebrow, navel. Shirts are of the heavy metal band or the loose, sleeveless variety, to show off her ink. Pants are jeans or black leggings. In general, everything is black and white, with just a splash of bright colour. A black antiqued cloth backpack covered in patches and badges hands from the back of her wheelchair.

Malatesta (Stregha Nona): Evil Thoughts, Good Deeds

Birth Name: Sandra Malatesta

Age: 82

Active: 1965-2002 (1953-1964 in the Dread Legion)

Gender: Female

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Castelforte, Lazio, Italy

City of Residence: New Ivansburg, Delaware, USA

Occupation: retired (former member of the Liberty Corps and the Dread Legion)

Powers: Once an immensely powerful evil sorceress who singlehandedly took on the entire Liberty Corps, she turned her back on those dark ways, placing an unbreakable curse on herself so that she would gradually forget offensive magic. While this took years and, reformed, she served in the Liberty Corps for a time, she retains only utility and fairly basic spells nowadays: transmutation, translocation, healing, and very limited telekinesis and heat manipulation.

Appearance: One of the few non-chunky nonnas that you’ll encounter, Sandra looks like your typical old Italian woman, with a thick head of wispy white hair that categorically attempts to resist all and any control not consisting of a hairclip and bun approach. She was once a ravishing beauty known for dressing provocatively, but now she favours relatively conservative dresses in old world patterns.

Wednesday Warrior: Hump Day is best day

Active: 2007-present

Gender: Male

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Brampton, Ontario, Canada

City of Residence: New Ivansburg, Delaware, USA

Occupation: Mail Room worker

Powers: For one hour, every Wednesday at 3:00 PM, Devan gains superpowers roughly analogous to those of Superman himself.

Appearance: Devan is a short, marginally overweight South Asian man in his late twenties. When he actually cares about his appearance, he’s rather handsome. He usually wears a short, neatly trimmed beard and moustache and his hair is dark and loosely curled. He generally dresses down, both at work and outside of it. he is never out of fashion because he is never in it either.

Gender: Male

Nationality: American

Birthplace: Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

City of Residence: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Appearance: Juan is a small, lightly built man with a vigorous and energetic demeanour. His deeply-tanned skin still bears hints of acne, and his jet-black hair is often slicked back. Almost always clean-shaven and respectably dressed, he prefers to wear brightly-coloured business shirts and seems to have a fondness for ostentatious cuff links.

Faust looked around. She was surrounded by losers. I mean, she knew where she stood in the grander scheme of superpowered beings, she wasnt too big a deal herself, but she never really cared about the whole superhero community, she got by doing her own thing, she was a grossly successful doctor, she was doing fine.

... and now she is sucked into superhero activities and she's surrounded by losers...

*sighs*

Instinctively she started wondering if she could gain anything by seeing if the forces of hell could help her take control of the group. Meh, nobody could gain anything from these guys probably...

Why is that guy looking so funny?

Nick took in the sight of this great hall. He knew some of these names, albeit vaguely. A couple first pitches at Cossacks games here, a villain stopped on the news there, a parade all the way over... somewhere. They were the elite, the top of their game, the most beloved men and women in the city. "Just like I used to be," he thought.

And now they were gone.

Looking at those meant to replace these legendary heroes, he saw little special. It struck him as rather funny that he was taller than most of these superheroes. It was even better to watch the German-looking chick flop to the ground snoring. "Well, it's a start," he mumbled as he approached the still-forming group.

It was everything she'd ever dreamed of.

You saw pictures of it all the time, to be honest. The Liberty Mountain was the home of the Corps, so pressers and photo ops happened all the time when they were showing off a new addition or dealing with a successful day at the coalface of supervillain-face-punchery. The hall she walked through now had seen so many heroes through the years, some of them truly great.

Take Treering, for instance. She was a hero from the early Sixties whose power let her produce thin layers of a super-strong wonder material from her skin, along with super strength and speed the more layers she had on. She was one of those heroes who was great as the second wave of an engagement, timing her charge into the fray with villains like Colosso the Giant Clam-Man or the Incomprehensible Doctor Spaflango just when the bad guys thought the tide was beginning to turn in their favour. She'd retired in the end, towards the end of 1998. Cap could name the exact date and time, of course. December 5th, 7:04 p.m., the day one of the most experienced heroes in the game had said she wanted to spend more time with her family, friends, and rehabilitated formerly-evil clones. It was why the statue was here, made from the same glittering silver metal that she created, that scattered rainbows from its surface when the sunlight shone through it.

Thirty years of being one of the greatest heroes in the Corps. Robyn had a career nearly half as long as hers, and not one single solitary thing to show for it. Captain Chicken didn't hold pressers. Captain Chicken wouldn't get a statue in these halls. Captain Chicken would be lucky if she got a "Nice work, rookie" from heroes who'd been around for all of a couple months; getting anything from the Corps other than gritted teeth and a "Don't call us, we will never, ever call you" was the subject of mad, whirlwind daydreams. Fuck she needed a drink. And then another drink.

No drinking in costume, though, those were the Rules. Be clean and bright and shiny and don't give anyone any more ammunition than they already had. She could cope with another... however long this took before the next time she hit the sauce. Well, with her finances, it was really more like love-tapping the sauce, but it still made things hurt less for a time. Not everything. But most things.

Some of the people here she knew about. Nick No Knees, obviously, there'd been some anti-power sentiment after his conviction and she'd had to deal with the fallout. Robyn shuddered at the memory of a man throwing a brick at her after she'd turned the guy trying to mug him into a chicken. She'd still been crying when the effect wore off, and not just because the brick had caught her in the head and she hadn't saved up enough to get some cushioning for her mask yet. Flashback was another; a recent addition to the Corps with a way more violent history that was only mostly on the right side of the law. Robyn couldn't help but be jealous about that. A thorn in the Corps' side on multiple occasions had been inducted into their ranks (on however preliminary a basis) while a hero who'd worked the hero beat for fifteen stupid goddamn fucking years had been laughed away and told to come back when she wasn't... whatever the hell she was supposed to be.

She could still hear Timeline saying it, however hard she tried not to.

But the Corps had been wrecked. Almost everyone associated with it, even the preliminaries, the associates, everyone had gone dark. Which was just weird, especially since the Corps and its affiliates had a pretty prominent profile on the internet and social media. The closest Captain Chicken had to a social media presence was occasionally showing up in dead memes that called her... well, she wasn't going to repeat what they called her. Ever. Mostly it was just people laughing at her, and a sarcastic "fan club" that was full of high school mean girls who were still richer and more successful than an honest-to-God superhero, for fuck's sake.

She wished the heroes were here. Because she knew for a fact that she was the most experienced person in actual cape-to-cape combat in the room. The Amazing Black Hole was pretty solid in a fight, from what she could remember about him, and Nick and Flashback were obviously decent contenders, but she'd been in the game with a crappy power for fifteen years and she wasn't dead, and if she had the most experience then something had obviously gone horribly fucking wrong. The angry-looking lady had already fallen asleep, for God's sakes. The superheroes were all gone, the ones of any use who'd save the day and get the girl and sign a deal so that kids could walk to school with their very own Liberty Corps PR-approved hero lunchbox, and if there was any doubt that Captain Chicken didn't rank among that number then it disappeared without a trace when she remembered she was standing here, in this time and in this place, with only statues and stained glass and news tickers and so, so many memories of heroics.

Being in the room was everything she'd ever dreamed of, and she still felt like something to be scraped off of someone's shoe. But no tears in costume. Let them see you bleed or bruise or bust a rib if you have to, but never ever ever let them see you break. That was Rule One.

Robyn held back the tears, and waited for the group to form, hoping against hope that someone would tell them all what to do.

Jackson, slumped against the wall, blearily looked up. At this point, he had went around 2 days without sleep, which definitely made it hard to stay awake, which he was trying to do with all his energy at this point (not that he had much, mind you). He would've taken some energy pills that he bought at a gas station en-route, but he dropped them a couple of minutes ago and couldn't find him. Consigned to his situation, Jackson stayed where he was, casting some glances at the other attendees, still ruminating on why exactly he thought it was a good idea to come here. He knew the answer, but he still questioned himself about the intelligence of his course of action.

Oh well, he was already here, and there wasn't much he could do besides staying in his current position and waiting for something to happen before he fell asleep. Hopefully, that would take his mind off his dreariness at the moment.

Anders had always kind of wanted to make it to the big leagues. A childhood dream, but not one he'd ever thought would come about. And yet here he was, in the front lines, along side a whole bunch of questionable characters. Was this really how it was supposed to go? Superhero work was all about putting your life on the line, but when it came down to it... Well, he'd made his decision, and he'd carry through with it. Still, if whatever or whoever it was could take out the Liberty Corps, what chance did they have?

Anders took a sip of his coffee and grimaced. It had gone cold already. He took another sip.

April is just standing there, staring at the room with a lack of facial expressions, silent as always.
But even if it looks like nothing is happening there, a lot of thoughts are going through her head.


What do you mean they are all gone?
How does that even happen?
Exactly what happened to them?
Why?

Does this mean that we are next?
Or that now we have to take their roles?
Honestly, i can't tell which one is worse


While this all was happening, she continued to have the feeling in the back of her head that something bad was about to happen

Reactions to each other and to the overarching situation are mixed. While some remain silent, a couple pointedly so, many take the first tentative steps toward introductions. This is clearly an awkward group, and that is reflected plainly in their attempts. Life as a cape but not a cape seems to have left many of them with baggage. The interactive, tempur-pedic sofas are the highlight of those surreal first couple of minutes.

However, as if to cut this awkward coming together mercifully short, the sleeping Faust's cellphone buzzes. No sooner has attention turned in her direction than other phones issue beeps, blips, and buzzes. People glance at their phones and at each other. Many swipe screens and steal surreptitious looks. It appears that each has received a text message of some sort. The question is, will they share. Some look towards the monolithic doors at the far end of the hallway. Their eyes scan the four large screens located at the chamber's cardinal points, but nobody comes through the doors and the televisions continue to display the same Liberty Corps flag, flapping gently in simulated wind that they have since the ten first arrived. It appears that no help and no explanation is forthcoming. They will be on their own.

Robyn fumbled for a moment and eventually dragged her burner phone out of her utility belt, because of course she had one of those. A single word. What the hell was that supposed to mean? Maybe it might make sense in context. Hm.

"I think someone's messing with us," she said, then jerked to attention as she realized she'd said it out loud. Heh. Jerk chicken. She'd have to remember that one. "Uh. Yeah," she continued. "I think somebody's definitely messing with us. Beyond the whole, y'know, 'the Corps has vamoosed and now you guys get to deal with the fallout' level of messing with us. All of us getting a text at the same time when none of us know each other? That can't be a coincidence. Anyone else get a single word in the text they just got? Also, uh... hi. I'm Captain Chicken. Friendly neighbourhood chicken-themed superhero. I know a couple of you through the grapevine but, uh... maybe we should all introduce ourselves? Or something? Anyways, I got 'among', so I don't know if that means anything outside what I've already said so yeah I'll, uh, I'll just... yeah."

After rambling, she trailed off. This was why she didn't give interviews. That and the fact that the only people who wanted to interview Captain Chicken were doing so purely to take the piss.

As soon as he saw that single word he knew things were about to turn ugly. Should he just hide it, or pretend he had gotten something else? But Anders had to have people around him that he could trust: his ability left him helpless, after all. And with "among," he was alarmed at what this one word message might mean...

"The Narcoleptic. I can put people to sleep." The short version was enough for now.

"The word I was sent is 'traitorous'."

"From what me, Jackson, and April - wherever she is - have gathered, everyone has a different word," Nick began, relaying a few minutes' worth of investigation. "'kill', 'them', and 'immediately'. With 'among', that makes... four. Ten of us, ten words, we just need to get all the words and go from there." Nick paused. "Does that sound good, Captain Chick- Ok really? Do you have like a birth name or something I can't - I just can't call someone 'Captain Chicken'." After The Narcoleptic stepped up, he quietly added 'traitorous' to his list of words.

"Ohhh, dear God what have I gotten back into..." he proceeded to mumble audibly.

Thanks to the surprisingly comfortable, auto-adjusting couch, Jackson was getting a decent measure of sleep. Just as he was about to fall fully into dreamland, a familiar buzz arose: his phone had received a text. Jackson was ready to write it off as spam, but when everyone else's devices lit up as well, Jackson was suspicious, even more so when the text simply read "them". When Nick shared his text, which read "kill", suspicion turned into fearful apprehension. This would be a good time to use his "spirit", which Jackson decided to do: fading into sleep once more, as a hazy, purple-ish apparition took Jackson's place.

As the "spirit" manifested, it spoke, in a somewhat coarse tone of voice: "So far, we have kill, them, immediately, among and traitorous. We can agree on that. The order is a bit more tricky: I think we can all discern "kill them immediately" from our messages so far. Among and traitorous are the odd ones out. So, I'm gonna take a look at that German girl's phone-screen while she's dozing off, to see if we can obtain any more connections. Let's hope she doesn't wake up on us, eh?"

"You aren't the first person to say that, Nick, and you won't be the last, but it's still my hero name. I work three jobs so I don't get to use it much, and I like hearing it. Um, regardless of whether you think it's dumb."

And I don't like hearing Robyn, she thought to herself. Who would? Ugly name for an ugly kid that turned into an ugly woman. Inside and out. Ask anyone back home, if they remember me at all.

"So. Uh. 'Among, Kill, Them, Immediately, Traitorous'. I've, uh, I've heard better things from random text messages. Like 'This is a final demand before we shut off your hot water again'. Haha. Uh. I... really don't think we should do anything drastic or permanent before we get the full sentence, you know? Because, chicken-sense tingling here... it strikes me as a test. Of, like, whether or not we'll work together. I agree with the big glowy purple guy though, we should look through the German lady's phone if she's not waking up any time soon. Hope someone knows her password. Or that it's, like, fingerprint-locked or something."

Why did you say chicken-sense? Idiot. You don't have one of those. That'd be a good power. You don't get those. You get garbage to match the fucking rest of you.

Robyn realized she was running her mouth again, and shut it, stepping back towards the wall and the statues, out of the light.

"We don't need to unlock the phone to view the message apparently. You just... kinda see a preview of the message on the lock-screen." A hint of confusion flashed over his face as he said this.

Some of 'em don't even know smartphones are a thing..." He somewhat trailed off. "Was it really so long?" he asked himself.
