After Fog’s heroic victory over Crossfire in his final moments. Crossfire was put in prison and the city of Cincinnati prepared to ship him cross country to a more secure facility, but, while in transit to the other facility, the convoy was attacked east of Batavia and west of Portsmouth. The convoy was guarded by soldiers and APCs. Also, the Thunderbolts were officially escorting it. The superheroes Waterfall and the new hero, Dynamic Disc, were following behind too. So, this led to an epic giant superhero brawl in suberbia. After a grueling battle, The Eleven won. They busted out Crossfire and nearly killed another of Mikie’s characters. (Sorry Mikie!)
Towards the end of the battle, Velocity Beam rushed on to the scene and fought Bullet. He returned to learn that The Eleven had accomplished their goal and were willing to declare a temporary ceasefire while both sides go home. Both sides are able to agree after a little conflict (Because no one wants to go to jail or die.) and split ways. Moments after The Eleven had left, Hyjinks leaps on to the scene. He makes fun of, a now gone, Crossfire and quickly realizes that his opponents are gone. The group heads back to the base to make plans and try to figure out The Eleven’s motives.
After the group made it to the base, Hyjinks, Waterfall, and Velocity Beam investigated the Fisk Industries attack, thanks to a tip from Silverblade. Tabun gas was used to kill and then explode the building. Another, abandoned, building was also destroyed.
The heroes put there heads together and investigated the attacks. They found almost nothing in common with the buildings. They then mapped all of the buildings and two thing stood out. The buildings were completely destroyed and they were all the same distance apart. Hyjinks thought that since there were no other connections that they should investigate a magic connection. The group tried to contact their long missing magic specialist Force. It failed. Then Velocity Beam decided to whip up a tracking device for Force’s communicator. They found his location in the Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan. He was near the Afghanistan border. Waterfall went astral and flew there. It was a military compound. Waterfall decided to investigate the military-looking base.
It turns out to be a Soviet Command Post. He narrows it down to one building, but it has some sort of magic barrier around it. When he makes a hole in it, two Supreme Soviets fly onto the scene. The magic user, Fantasia, tells him to leave. Waterfall returns to Cincinnati empty-handed and the group ponders what to do that’s when Velocity remembers a name in the paper. Waterfall and Hyjinks go and investigate.
They find the professor and talk to him. Despite his unhelpful attitude and Hyjinks basically giving away his superhero identity, they got useful information. They found out the sites of destruction caused by the Eleven were placed on lay lines and that the Eleven could potentially tap into those lay lines to effect the entire world. So, our heroes rush out to stop the villains, but they’re trapped in the building when demons and a magic shield surround the place. They make a heroic push and bust through the demons and the force field and leap back to Cincinnati. Meanwhile, the rest of the group is battling the demon hordes with no idea what’s going on because team communications have been jammed by Iron Mask!
Now, the heroes have to save the world from The Eleven, demons, and whatever their plan is.
