Marvel Heroes

Warzone: Part 2
The Battle Against the Eleven Continues

The heroes continued to deal with organized crime in Cincinnati. The Eleven made a series of moves on the 31st of August, 2014 to distract the heroes from their true motives. They hired a group of mercenaries to perform a high-tech robbery, caught fire to some buildings, and took advantage of a gang war. The group split up to deal with the problem. The Fog and Waterfall went to the fires. Velocity Beam and Hyjinks to the gang fight. Gamma and Borg to deal with the high-tech robbers.

As the group were wrapping up these problems, supervillains showed up. It seems likely that they were all members of The Eleven. The villains were The Adept, Bullet, and Demon of the Mist. These all turned out to be distractions. While those events were going on, two members of the Eleven attacked city hall and stole something. While they were escaping, the heroes pursued them. Velocity Beam, Waterfall, and Fog tracked them down thanks to Velocity’s super-hearing and they found Bishamon and Silveblade, the two attackers. They fought the two villains and nearly won when another member of the Eleven appeared: Iron Mask. Iron Mask’s power proved to be too much when combined with the other two and they were able to escape while everyone fled SHIELD and the Thunderbolts.

Saving Captain America
A Trip to Indianapolis and Back

Immediately after the heroes return to Cincinnati, they over hear news that Captain America has been spotted in Indianapolis. He’s, apparently, causing a panic by damaging property. The group teleports after him and Hyjinxs arrives as well. Captain America releases a number of animals out of the zoo. Some of the animals attack the heroes and are a distraction for Captain America to pick the group off one by one. Force is able to track Captain America down and confronts him. Meanwhile, Kang the Conqueror hacks the US’s telecommunications and transmits a message to the USA. He says that he’s returned Captain America so that Earth will prove to be a suitable challenge when he chooses to conquer it again. Force confronts Captain America and is able to help him shake off the brain-washing that Kang had done to him. Captain America thanks the group and promises to end Dr. Doom’s reign as SHIELD Director. At that point the group and Captain America split ways.

August 25th 2014

Ok, so I’m going post any interesting world facts that would make the news, but aren’t directly related to gaming stuff. Feel free to comment as much as you want. From here on out, I’ll write it out as a news report and summary. I’ll probably post them as headlines and clips from stories. Kind of like on the radio. It’ll be so we get an idea of what’s going on in the world. Superheroes will be a big deal for this though. They’re like the police, army, natural disaster, economic stimulus, and celebrity rolled into one.

“Hello, this is Patricia Tilby with WHiH News. This is another segment of news at 8. In the news today, Captain Marvel Clashes With the Media Again, Where Is the Hulk: One Year in Review, US Shows Tremendous Economic Recovery, Finally an Answer to Beyonce and Dazzler’s Feud in an Interview with Beyonce Herself, and Thor’s Return?

Captain Marvel threatened the reporter who asked her about her workout routine and how she’s preparing for the beach season at a White House Correspondent Dinner. She replied “You fucking ask Thor that too? Huh?!? Say anything else that stupid and I’ll shove that camera up your ass. Trust me, I can make it fit too.”
Hulk is still missing. Despite “sightings” that show the Hulk in grainy photos, no one has seen him, thankfully, for over a year.
USA GDP is shooting up thanks to a strong year of recovery and redevelopment after the nation was occupied.
Beyonce denies there’s any conflict between the two pop stars. She says they’re on friendly terms. (It’s a lie.)
Thor has been seen working for the Initiative at their training camp.

Enemies on All Sides
On the Run

While the new yet to be named team of Cincinnati superheroes met in their hidden base, a new villain attacked a payday loan place across the street from them. The heroes fought the villain, but quickly realized it was a trap. The enemies used knockout gas on them, and knocked the group out. However, Velocity Beam was able to whisk some of the group away. Then while the heroes were being loaded into the van, Velocity Beam, The Fog, and Waterfall returned. They fought the criminals led by Bullseye and did well. Then Bullseye threatened Gamma. Velocity Beam rushed Bullseye to get to Gamma, but Bullseye held him off. This resulted in Gamma getting shot through the chest. Bullseye made his escape during the confusion.

At this point, the police came. As they were cleaning up the situation, one of the police officers, Officer Dimitrov, reported the heroes to S.H.I.E.L.D. A S.H.I.E.L.D. task force flew onto the scene and landed 20+ agents, 5 suits of Mandroid armor, and the “reformed” supervillain team known as the Thunderbolts. This combined group and the authority of S.H.I.E.L.D. convinced the heroes to surrender. They were cuffed and taken to the Helicarrier, where they met Dr. Doom. Doom who is the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. talked to the heroes and informed them of their choice to join the Initiative or be imprisoned. Force didn’t take kindly to this ultimatum and, unknowingly, insulted Doom in a way that Doom couldn’t bear. He dragged Force away and locked away before removing him from the Helicarrier and having him tortured for two full days. In the end, he has also implanted a number of safeguards into Force’s mind then released him for no particular reason, onto the streets of Portland, Maine.

The other members have to deal with Maria HIll. The Fog quickly signs, but Velocity pesters the assistant director with questions and doesn’t sign the act. Waterfall also doesn’t sign quickly. Maria Hill, suspecting something and annoyed, has Waterfall and Velocity sent to jail. Her suspicions quickly prove to be well founded as the New Avengers take a shot at the Helicarrier and free Fog, Waterfall, and Velocity Beam. They also find Gamma and his armor from the med bay. They whisk the group off to Doctor Strange‘s Sanctum Santorum. He let’s the group recuperate there for a day and then returns them to Cincinnati to continue their lives with the promise that the New Avengers may call on them some day.

Also, the rest of the featured article goes into the tragedy of the loss of human life and speculates a little more about how this isn’t the end of the problem. The Enquirer is also going to run a profile of the superheroes. I’ll post them in the comments included with this adventure post.

Warzone: Part 1
Cincinnati is Torn Apart by the Mechanizations of its Organized Crime

The heroes of Cincinnati are facing a deadly plots by various groups to claim Cincinnati as their own. The Kingpin is making another push for Cincinnati from the East Coast. The Maggia are trying to claim Cincinnati as their own and the “Invisible” Eleven as becoming quite visible. Well, kind of visible. This has resulted in a blood bath in the center of Cincinnati. Over the Rhine was the first battlefield in this war. The heroes Borg, Force, Gamma (Darrell Thornton), The Fog, Velocity Beam, and Waterfall fought a large contingent of thugs and gangsters working for the Kingpin and Maggia. The two groups also sent in a few superhuman enforcers (Kangaroo, Bison, The Russian, and Shocker) to provide superpowered support. The heroes were able to defeat them and as they were nearing victory, a member of the Eleven came onto the scene. He shot and nearly killed the Russian. Then battled the superheroes to they were pushed out of Over the Rhine. When the police went back through the area, all of the opposing gang members were gone and the superhumans were missing.

One other roadblock came up in this situation. The local news crew flew a helicopter to get a viedo of the gang violence and videotaped the superheroes fighting. Gamma had his armor destroyed in the battle, so he was videotaped without anything to hide his identity. The helicopter was brought down, and he recovered the tape, but at least two people are certain to know his identity. The first, Shocker and second the reporter from the helicopter.

After the battle, the heroes agree to form a team and work together to protect the city. Gamma volunteers to provide the resources they need.
