The Unstoppable Dreadnoughts
Robots Vs. Superhumans
  • April 20th-July 3rd, 2016

The heroes began with the run in with the police from the parts of Wyvern and B.C. Wyvern surrendered herself and went to jail. While in jail, B.C. started to hatch a plot to break her out. Before that could happen, Excalibur, primarily Mr. Righteous, and B.C. took the fight to the Glockners at their Ruby Games. Defeating the games quickly, the Glockner’s found out that Excalibur was present and ditched the place before the heroes could get much out of it. Though Mr. Righteous was able to get his pockets picked by B.C. who proceeded to use the identity of Mr. Righteous to break Wyvern out of jail.

While Wyvern was in jail, her mother visited. Wyvern proclaims she was just a trophy because of some unknown reason and claimed her mother never loved her. The wounded woman who took Nadia in from the gutter, raised her for years, educated her, and brought her back from the dead left. Then, Nadia met Mephisto who offered to fix her mistakes in return for her soul. She refused thinking she could get more out of the devil and that he didn’t actually want her soul. Getting a one hour period to think about it, she returned to Earth. Where B.C. broke her out. They escaped to eastern England where Excalibur and the police pursued them. Nearly home free, B.C. helps disguise them and they make their way to the nearest city. There, Wyvern decides to bargain with the devil. Despite the protests of the lord of hell that he did in fact want her soul and that no deal would be made without it, Wyvern tries to renegotiate the contract. Annoyed and proclaiming that she would end up in his hands eventually, Mephisto sends her back to prison. Where she escapes again.

On the run, Wyvern eventually gives up and contacts Ankrah. Deciding that working with her was the best place for her. Returning to say goodbye, Wyvern completes her turn to evil by blasting the friendly and helpful Mr. Righteous. Though the heroes are able to take Wyvern down, Ankrah intervenes and saves the girl. Depressed and downtrodden, the heroes limp into the coming days. When suddenly a number of events occur simultaneously.

This final battle, saw SHIELD pulled away by the revelation of Soviets infiltrate the Glockners. The villains shut down communications to prevent a rapid response from EDI. Staged an incident in Cork to draw Captain Britain and Meggan away. Created a plan to get BC and HHB in a fist fight on a boat. Ignored Wyvern because she turned evil and sent Adam Jenson to an alternate dimension. Excalibur was called to Leeds because of a ploy thereThen fought a massive gang war with Dreadnoughts and superhumans in downtown London. The Goblins won and reign supreme in the post-war aftermath though their presence is nowhere to be found. The gang controlling the streets and helping with rebuilding and stabilization are a new group. One other event happened, one of the bad guys released a demon in downtown that was defeated by EDI. This all occurred in May. The month of June was a period of rest and rebuilding. Little happened though the heroes took stock and made adjustments.

Senseless Violence
"Now, I am become death"
  • April 9th, 2016 – April 19th, 2016

The heroes began their journey with a regular Sunday. The police presence in London was still immense and though disheartened, they resolved to protect the city further. They began with Mr. Righteous taking a journey through Excalibur Tower and meeting with Lionheart. She gave him information on gang-related activities, but his presence annoyed her enough that she sent him away.

Meanwhile, the other heroes pursued their own lives, Wyvern investigated the doctor, Otto Gunther, that supposedly had saved her. And though the name appeared on the hospital incident report, she was unable to find any nuclear scientists with that name.

B.C. left prison to the jeers of other prisoners and patrolled. Adam Jenson faced the disappearance of an entire lab of Timely Robotics. Two of the security guards on duty were killed. Adam Jenson also told his fellow secruity guards he was a superhero.

Patrols during the early days turned up something unusual, mentions of a “Ruby Games” held by the Glockner’s. The heroes investigated it further. While patrolling and trying to find out more about these games, the heroes see an explosion wrack the helicarrier. They go to investigate and fight the Supreme Soviets! Apparently, Count Nefaria is there as well. A fog covers the top of the helicarrier that causes most of the heroes to forget their mission as the Soviets escape, but not before taking down B.C. B.C. was punched through the helicarrier and as he fell, was caught and rescued by Lionheart.

In the aftermath of the battle, B.C. was the only one who remembered anything about the fight. And all other evidence was destroyed of the Soviet attack. Excalibur intended to investigate it. B.C. feeling depressed and useless, left the building to go on patrol, but being seriously injured and without body armor, was shot by some random criminals and nearly died again. His stone body shut down and he believed he died, but the next day, he revived.

From there, the heroes continued their everyday lives until the next week where an enormous gang war broke out between three of the remaining gangs. Wyvern, being herself and having learned nothing about senseless violence, lept into action attempting to prove how powerful she is. She attacked the super villains working for the gangs and battled them as the gangs fought amongst themselves from inside of cordoned police zone. The other heroes lept into the action themselves. Quick successes were the rule of the day for the heroes and they were able to defeat The Eel quickly. Wyvern murdered Feyhunter in an enormous fiery explosion of explosive fire power greater than that of a volcanic eruption along with the tops of two inhabited buildings. While B.C. and Union Jack worked to save the other people in the burning buildings, the rest of the heroes fought the gang supervillains. Poor matchups abound and the heroes struggled. First, Mr.Righteous fell. Then Wyvern. Union Jack and B.C. after rescuing the people from the fire, went in search of their friends. B.C. saved Wyvern and Union Jack went hunting for the Kidnapped Mr. Righteous who was whisked away by an A.C.E droid. B.C. told Adam Jenson to flee, but Adam Jenson chose to stay and fight. He fights on against all three A.C.E. droids, Phantom Watcher, and Granolith, and loses. He is also taken by an A.C.E. droid.

The next day, Adam Jenson and Mr. Righteous wake up in an nondescript apartment buidling. Perfectly fine and with their gear still intact. They are suspicious and go to Excalibur base for a checkup, but turn out to be perfectly fine. Confused, they go back to their daily heroics. Meanwhile, B.C. waits with Wyvern at the hospital. While the news lambasts her, thanks to SHIELD surveilance, for killing 15 people and injuring critically injuring another two dozen. The final thing the heroes find out about is the location and time of the Glockner hosted Ruby Games.

The Mandroid Heist
Death of Big
  • February 20th-March 14, 2016

The heroes started investigating the gangs once more. B.C. and Adam Jenson planned to infiltrate the gangs starting with their lead in the Glockner Firm. They ran into some trouble when they proved themselves quite unskilled at communicating that they belonged in the criminal underworld. They were barred quite effectively for a period of time, but the gatekeeper to an underground fighting arena with an entrance in a sporting good store. Adam Jenson, frustrated with the failures of deception, knocked the gatekeeper out and marched down into the arena where friend was pitted against friend. B.C. was beaten down by Adam Jenson in a once sided fight since B.C. was unable to use his powers. After this, B.C. went to gather information while Adam Jenson challenged the toughest person in the arena. This hushes the crowd and the go to get the boss of the Glockner’s known as Levin Glockner. Adam Jenson, with a series of incredible rolls, beat Levin without a scratch. Racking in tons of cash and breaking the mobs boss invincible reputation. A little while after the fight, Levin Glockner came back over to the heroes and applauded them for their work and revealing that he knew who Adam Jenson was (Not B.C. since he was disguised.). He told them not to return to his arena after this occasion, but Adam Jenson felt he should take over the gang and told the mob boss that. When Levin Glockner refused, the two sides began to battle. Levin Glockner and a small army of mercenaries and grunts battled the heroes. Levin battled Adam Jenson nearly one on one and the battle was the opposite of the last with Levin winning with barely a scratch. A beaten and captured Adam Jenson layed at Levin’s feet and B.C. seeing defeat inevitable did not know what to do. At that point, Levin threw the body of Adam back to B.C. and told them that they were to leave.

The next major event, after Adam recovered, was to chase around the criminals. They were always a step behind however and it eventually proved to be a fatal mistake as they were too late to stop the assassination of Silver Syren. Still, the police recruited the heroes as protection against a suspected Mandroid heist. The police and heroes also staged an ambush for the gangs of London, equipping some of the transported Mandroid armors with operators. The battle was still long and hard. The gangs brought many of their own villains, including Count Nefaria who took out every single one of the PCs and a few other heroes including Captain Britain and Eryn. Despite this, the heroes were able to knock out Big and destroy all of his clones. Though the gangs were able to steal the Mandroid armors, the remaining heroes were able to run off Count Nefaria before he killed the entire party. Officer Dodge was lost in the fighting. This was a great lose because he had survived the brutal armory battle and was one of the heads of the police investigation. The heroes also lost the young mutant Pixie in the fighting.

In the end, three villains were arrested: Dragonfly, Gladiator, and Vengeance. The heroes were also able to destroy the Maggia’s robot and the remaining villains were knocked out. But thanks to Count Nefaria wiping out 70% of the police forces most of the villains were able to escape.

Through out London, there’s considerable public debate over whether this was a success since some 20 or so police officers lost their lives, 31 of the 36 Mandroid armors were stolen And most of the heroes were defeated. Though the Acolytes leader was apparently killed in the fighting afterward. Most importantly, the PCs called the Glockners’ leader telling him that Big was incapacitated. Afterwards, while conferring with officer Brent, they found out the police knew of Big’s hideout. When they arrived, they found Big dead with a note on his chest saying, “Thanks B.C.” The Glockner’s had struck.
