This story begins with The Fog. He was pursuing Crossfire for his own reasons and had tracked him down to Over The Rhine. After chasing some leads, he found Crossfire and tried to take him down. The fight was brutal and both sides struggled. As the final blows were about to be thrown, Madame Masque came onto the scene. She appeared wielding two pistols and Fog shouted for her to take a shot at Crossfire. She shot, but it was at Fog. That attack put him under and he started to lose consciousness. It was at that point, Madame Masque said “Here’s a hint, we’re working with The Eleven.”
The next day, on the 1st of September 2014, The Eleven let it leak that they were planning t execute Fog as an example of their power. The heroes didn’t take kindly to this and went to the location to faceoff against them. This turned into a large superhero brawl near the river. Borg, Gamma, Fog, Hyjinks, and Waterfall fought Flashback, Crossfire, Frostbite, The Adept, and Red Devil as they planned to publicly execute Fog. The Eleven had come anticipating and hoping for resistance, but the heroes were stronger than expected. The fight began with The Adept attempting to execute Fog, this appeared to work till Crossfire passed by Fog. Fog was faking his death and couldn’t allow his enemy to pass by. So, he revealed his deception to insult Crossfire. Crossfire, surprised, turned and fired a series of rounds into the helpless Fog nearly killing him.
Meanwhile, a battle of epic proportions occurred. Superheroes punched at villains with titanic forces. Blasts of energy were fired. Grapple lines shot. A giant ice golem fought a giant water golem. Heroes and villains were badly wounded. Fog seemingly made a run for it with his sliver of remaining health, but it was a ploy to turn around and charge into Crossfire at hundreds of miles an hour. The battle went on. Gamma joined the fray late. His entrance helped turn the tide. At one point, Waterfall was nearly killed by Flashback and Red Devil. To save his friend, Fog charged at Red Devil, but Red Devil was prepared and struck Fog knocking him unconscious, but giving Waterfall the chance to escape. Crossfire wasted no time though and sought to end his nemesis and fired into the incapacitated and badly wounded Fog. As the remaining heroes fought the retreating members of The Eleven, Waterfall attempted to save Fog, but was unable to. Fog died on the streets of Cincinnati. He went out as a true hero because with his last breath, he summoned a thunderstorm which put out a fire accidentally started during the battle and cutting off Crossfire’s means of escape. The remaining heroes took Crossfire down and turned him over to the authorities. In the confusion at the end of the battle, the young hero, Hyjinks, made off with Crossfire’s pistols.
