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.
