The Harbinger Incident
The Bringer of Destruction

Last session ended with the Harbinger shutting down the heart of a man on the street. The Harbinger, delighted with the results of the action decided to pursue further killing in the hopes of greater understanding. LaVelle Johnson AKA The Harbinger strolled down the street attempting to kill people at random as he passed by them. The Harbinger attracted police attention, but his spaced out killings (accidental) and his random path made him difficult to track. As a police car passed by, Harbinger used his powers to kill the driver. The other officer noticed, got out of the wrecked car and tried to arrest Harbinger, but Harbinger blasted him with plasma generation. This got the further attention of the police, but Harbinger had time to escape. Harbinger decided to fly away, but his control of his powers was lacking and he stood at the crime scene for nearly a minute. This delay was just enough time for the police to arrive in force. As they did, Harbinger decided to stay and fight.

The battle began. It was long. As waves of police fought valiantly, but futilely to stop the menace of Harbinger. Harbinger showed ever increasing mastery of his powers and mastery over the environment. The tides started to shift when B.C, Adam, and Wyvern arrived on scene. Wyvern confused debated what to do. BC and Adam lept into battle against Harbinger. A moment of sorrow was had for the nameless police officers as one officer asked another to tell his wife what transpired there. Though Harbinger was able to deceive the heroes that his constructs were not controlled by him and he was a victim. Harbinger had one of his constructs damage a nearby building, but thanks to a pep talk from BC, Officer Brent, was able to save them. Through this all Wyvern proved especially amiable to his lies and tried to rescue Harbinger from the scene of the massacre/battle. As she leapt away, Captain Britain came meteorically onto the scene crashing into the fleeing pair.

Harbinger, so as not to take the damage, tried to blast himself away from the wounded Wyvern.Wyvern saw the attack at the last second and dodged out of the way. They both landed with Captain Britain facing off against both of them. He looked at Harbinger and Wyvern and told them to surrender. Wyvern started to question it and Captain Britain began to respond when Harbinger released his focus attack which erupted a beam that barrelled into Captain Britain and destroyed a 4×7 block area of London. Wyvern dodged to the only place she could reach, behind Captain Britain, and managed to survive. Captain Britain survived, barely, as well from a direct hit (260+ damage) and quickly surveyed the scene in shock as Harbinger collapsed to the ground. In shock and sorrow, Captain Britain attacked the downed Harbinger and beat him to death with Harbinger realizing in his last moments that he was a robot and never was a human. Captain Britain, victorious but defeated collapsed to the ground in anguish and wept for the dead.

After such a catastrophic event, a short time skip took place for 3 weeks. The heroes spent their time rebuilding and gathering up their lives. A new hero, sponsored by the London Police department comes onto the scene and starts to fight crime. Her name is the Silver Syren. Her and Adam run into each other while they are both fighting a number of gang members, Adam is arrested, but goes willingly. Meanwhile, B.C. has been helping to rebuild and has an ominous dream. Wyvern faces the realization that she nearly helped a mass murderer escape and buries herself in the rebuilding work.

On the 1st of December, Wyvern is meets a member of the press, a Mr. Gardner. He gives her an envelope containing information on the gang activities in the city and leaves her. She goes and investigates one area where she runs into a superhuman fight between Black wing and the hero Hawk. Not knowing Hawk or Blackwing, she attempts to stop the fight to no avail. Silver Syren flies in and with the help of a victorious Hawk arrest Wyvern, but the two embarrassingly let the real villain escape. When Silver Syren returns to the area she meets up with Adam again who has captured Blackwing. After a talking to by the police, Wyvern is released and she returns to the are the next day And meets Hawk. Hawk apologizes and offers to team up against organized crime with Wyvern. The two decide to work together while Silver Syren tries to get Adam hired on the police force and to put together a superhero team.

Can a Stone Man Cry?
The Death and Rebirth of Autopsy
  • October 15th, 2015 – November 8th, 2015

This session begins with Autopsy captured by a long time enemy. The red-haired woman that has been hunting Ralph for a long time puts forth an ultimatum. She puts forth the option of the death of Ralph’s friends and maybe family’s death or his. Autopsy asks for her to reveal herself and to know what he had done to bring her to hunt him. The woman reveals herself. She seems to be more or less a nondescript average individual. Her name is Holly McAllister. She tells Ralph that he killed her father. She references one of Autopsy’s early battles where a vehicle thrown by him had smashed into a building. She tells Ralph that the car crushed her father. That Ralph never was faced with justice for his killing of her father. So, it falls upon her. Ralph accepts this and Holly loads a gun with a single adamantium bullet. She aims the gun right at his heart and pulls the trigger. Ralph drops to the ground limp and his blood pools out onto the cement floor and McAllister looks down, sad, as she pulls the cords from the displays.

Meanwhile, the other heroes are dealing with their own lives. B.C.‘s plan to contact Eryn works and the two have a short conversation where Eryn (Dr. Timothy Weisberg) reveals he was fighting his long time enemy Doctor Lancaster in the warehouse where B.C. was “born”. he expresses surprise that B.C. is “alive” and he offers to help B.C. He reattaches B.C.’s arm after removing the draconic curse on the limb and gives him an amulet so that the two of them can be in communication.

Wyvern has her hearing. Dr. Johnson has some science failures. BC starts patrolling. Then Hobgoblin takes down Scorpion. BC stumbles into a portal that leads to the fear dimension. He is able to escape, but a spirit follows him. The creature comes to be known as Ghosty/Murto. He turns human. They team up and BC teaches him about life. Wyvern saves people from a car wreck. Harbinger meets with Nadia when she visits him and agrees to test a blood sample for her. In the next few days, Dr. Johnson meets for coffee with Prof Klingenberg. The meeting confuses Dr. Johnson and he is disappointed in Dr. Klingenberg who leaves him in the middle of their meeting.

Then Harbinger and the other heroes see Micromax and Hobgoblin fight. All of the heroes rush that way. They’re not in time. Harbinger meets Hobgoblin on the way. They talk about making a team to take down Hobgoblin. Harbinger shows no interest because it’s not important in the grand scheme. BC, Ghosty, and Wyvern team up.

The next day, BC makes a giant Hobgoblin. Hobgoblin doesn’t appear. That same day, a Saturday, Nadia doesn’t show for the blood test with Dr. Johnson because she assumed it would be on Monday. Harbinger returns home and starts his experiments when he notices a machine. It is some sort of tracking device. However, when Harbinger finds the machine he is attacked and defeated by a well-prepared Hobgoblin. Harbinger gets a blood sample taken from him by the Hobgoblin.

Then Hobgoblin scouts out BC and Murto. The heroes spot him. Wyvern had left because she was bored. There is a fight. Hobgoblin is almost beaten but Murto is defeated and captured. BC chases after, but the Hobgoblin kidnaps Murto. While chasing after Hobgoblin Wyvern and B.C. meet up, but they’ve lost the Hobgoblin who escapes. B.C. blames Wyvern for not being there when she was needed. Meanwhile, Hobgoblin meets with his “partner” Black Cat and they use Murto’s heart to replace the destroyed one in Autopsy and revive him. Finally, Harbinger confused and alone after suffering attacks and setbacks, goes out and walks the streets when he runs into a group of people. He asks them what meaning there is to it all and when one of them gives an unsatisfying answer, Harbinger kills him.

A Final Confrontation
The Life of Autopsy
  • October 8th, 2015

Autopsy has just recently defeated Orka and has the powerful villain Orka captured. Autopsy forces Orka awake and talks to him. He tries to convince Orka to change his ways and stop being villainous. Orka and Autopsy talk about why they use their powers and motivations for their actions. Autopsy is somewhat confused and finds Orka’s arguments surprisingly convincing and Orka escapes from Autopsy fleeing back into the sea. On the way back to his building and workplace, Autopsy notices the neighbor woman who had contacted Containe Investigations to investigate Autopsy. Autopsy flies down and a short exchange where Autopsy becomes suspicious of the woman and resolves to be even stealthier when returning home. He enters his apartment where Fuuten is hanging about. The two sit around the table and eat while Ralph tells Fuuten about his battle with Orka.

A few days pass and Ralph does his work and shows his employer the location of the ship wreck where he battled Orka. Ralph is offered potential further work. After that, Autopsy decides to patrol the city and notices that a freak ice storm is brewing. He decides to investiagte that and to leave the Goblins (a new gang that he believes may be connected to the Hobgoblin) for another day. As he looks for the source of the unexplained storm and the temperature drops further and further, Autopsy decides to contact the Gaelic Guardian. When he does, he finds that the Gaelic Guardian is in battle with the Mummy Queen and two of her ice golems. Autopsy rushes to the scene of the battle and in a tense battle, is able to defeat the Mummy Queen at the final moments before her plan to steal the energy from Dublin is complete.

Ralph returns home and meets one of the tenants of his building, Cynthia Kent. Cynthia knows Fuuten as the sweet kid that lives with Ralph. She was on her way to check in on him when she ran into Ralph. After a short conversation, the two split ways and Ralph goes and teaches Fuuten Ancient Egyptian and they spend some quality time. While this is going on, Fuuten tells Ralph that Cynthia sometimes comes over and Fuuten lets her into the apartment to get her to cook lunch for him. Ralph feels a little guilty about this. Ralph also organizes a visit from his family. After a few more days, Ralph meets with his employees and talks to them about their assignments. He offers to set up Finn with his neighbor Cynthia.

Ralph does run into Cynthia, but the conversation doesn’t go as Ralph expects. He is asked out on a date that he accepts. Afterwards, he talks to Fuuten about what his powers are and they decide to test his powers. The demonstration of powers in Ralph’s apartment goes poorly and Fuuten destroys some stuff and runs through a wall. Cynthia, because of this, believes Fuuten might be a mutant. The next day, Fuuten and Ralph go to the Cork Academy to see if Fuuten can be enrolled there. Seth tells them Fuuten can’t go there because he’s only 6 and all of the other students are at least 12. That evening, Ralph goes on patrol and sees cars that have been broken into. A suspicious tow truck is going by and starts to hook up to a random car. The tow truck driver, when talked to by Autopsy, shoots him with a gas attack that makes him pass out.

Later, Autopsy wakes up in a steel and cement room. His arms pinned to the ground with power dampening manacles that are attached to cables. On the other side of the room is a glass window. The other wall has video displays that show video tapes of Ralph’s friends and loved ones. He looks back to the window where he sees a mysterious woman walk forward nearly into view. It’s the same woman from before.

A New Guardian of London Enters the Scene!
The Bulwark of the British Museum: B.C.
  • October 15th, 2015

Mona and Li-Rogg decide to return to space. The deposited Harbinger and Scorpion are left in London to reorganize their lives. A new hero also jumps onto the scene. A living statue B.C. becomes involved in the London superhuman community. He is only a recent addition to London and is closely tied to the British Museum. While B.C. is making his rounds and interacting with people near the British Museum, Scorpion and Harbinger are dealing with the University College London and both of their hearings. Lavelle Johnson being a well-known and established scientist has his hearing quickly. It goes well, despite his long and unexplained absence. The research which he discovered on a far-off alien planet is presented to the jury and the worth of Dr. Johnson and his research keeps him in his position. Dr. Johnson is somewhat upset that he wasn’t given the proper respect during his hearing. Meahwhile Nadia Maxwell meets her friends at a bar in London. She finds that Reginald had left University College and moved to Oxford. She also has a meeting with her mother that goes surprisingly well considering her issues with her school. Nadia also turns over the Power Broker serum. Those two heroes continue with their lives, dealing with school and the changes resulting from their last trip.

Meanwhile, B.C. and Scorpion stumble upon a murder scene. Scorpion tries to save the shot man, but he’s dead upon arrival at the hospital. Meanwhile, B.C. finds an address left at the crime scene. He walks to the location and waits for someone to answer him. He eventually notices a vehicle pull into the back and B.C. goes to investigate. He gets into a brawl and murders two gangsters in a garage. B.C. leaves and returns back to his area near the British Museum. A few days later, Lavelle Johnson is contacted by Science Advancement Institute (SAI) and offered a position at a place that would “respect him”. Not long after LaVelle Johnson and Nadia Maxwell confer. Nadia convinces LaVelle to go on patrol. On this patrol, the two pass near the British Museum where they see B.C. shouting at something in the sky. B.C. is able to see some sort of yellow glowing figure that flies straight into the British Museum. As the heroes approach the museum, a bright light explodes forth from the interior and the heroes rush towards the structure.

B.C. runs to the door and busts through with his powers while Harbinger and Scorpion debate the ethics of busting into the museum. B.C. enters the museum and sees the man made of yellow energy once more standing next to a large man who declares himself “Dragon King”. B.C. speaks to both of them which interests the energy being because he had assumed no one could see him. The energy man tells Dragon King to kill B.C. and flies off. Dragon king, overconfident, flicks B.C. away and marches through the front wall of the museum. At this point, Harbinger and Scorpion notice the Dragon King and a brawl begins. Harbinger uses all of his ability in a desperate attempt to take out Dragon King instantaneously which fails taking Harbinger out of the fight. Scorpion and B.C. fight the Dragon King, but the fight isn’t going well. As they are on the verge of a loss, B.C. creates an illusion of Captain Britain who threatens and intimidates Dragon King into fleeing. B.C. sends the illusion to continue to harass Dragon King as he flees, but Dragon King figures out its nature as an illusion. Humilated and surrounded by the police, Dragon King flees to return at a later time. After the battle, Scorpion, Harbinger, and B.C. are introduced with an exchange of information. Harbinger, seeing B.C.’s serious injuries recommends he see a doctor. Maybe Dr. LaVelle Johnson. The heroes then split up.

The heroes continue to deal with their daily lives. Harbinger recovers from the damage of stretching his power beyond their limits. He also refuses to go on patrol with Scorpion any longer. Scorpion runs into a situation at the Thames River where a meteorite holding some strange person crashes into the river. The person or alien attacks Scorpion and after a quick battle is defeated and taken to Dr. Johnson’s home. Dr. Johnson and Scorpion take the captive to his lab and leave momentarily and return early in the morning as classes begin. On the way in, they meet B.C. who is standing near Dr. Johnson’s lab. B.C. had journeyed to the labs because he was examining the stolen exhibit area at the British Museum when he started to suffer from scaly growths on his marble arm. Meanwhile, he started to feel ill with a cough. All unusual for a man made of marble. So, Dr. Johnson decided to examine him. Surprisingly, B.C. turned out to be a solid chunk of marble that should be unable to get sick. Dr. Johnson decides to cut off his arm since he had demonstrated some ability to regenerate and that seemed to be the best way to prevent the spreading of the scale like growth. Though B.C.‘s arm didn’t grow back quickly, he still decided to seek out what had happened at the museum. He leaves and while LaVelle and Nadia are discussing B.C., the person from the meteorite escaped. After some research at the local library, he goes down to Trafalgar Square and creates an illusion calling for Eryn a “so-called mage” who worked with X-Force.

The Journey Completed
Gravitation Takes the Throne
  • October 2nd

Our heroes, Dialectic, Harbinger, Scorpion, Li-Rogg, Mona T’zara are near the center of the universe. Dialectic awakes in the middle of the night because of a strange summons. The stone tablet that Li-Rogg has been carrying is calling to him. It whisks him off into a strange space and a being called Gravitation is there. She speaks to Dialectic informing a little about the death of her father Eternity and the collapse of reality. She also asks about the location of Dr. Tomorrow and saying that he was essential to guarantee success in the mission.

They approach the center and their ship picks up huge energy signatures beyond what their ship can register. As they continue to approach the energy signatures they see immense figures of incredible power. The heroes recognize Galactus amongst other beings of similar ability. Energy emanates from them in such incredible waves that it threatens to destroy the ship. Harbinger and Dialectic combine their talents and push themselves to their limits to shield the ship. Their efforts hold long enough for them to get past, but their strength fades and their ship is damaged severely and the engines catch fire. After emergency repairs are completed, the heroes move on. Next, they approach another entity of immense power. This one is the Silver Surfer. A quick conversation ensues between the heroes, Gravitation, and the Silver Surfer. The Silver Surfer joins with the heroes to face off against Gravitation’s brother “Entropy” and prevent him from taking the position as Eternity.

The heroes travel to the center of the universe where their sensors and powers detect the death of Explosion. They continue to fly deeper into the fray when a wave of energy overwhelms the ship and the shields and destroys the ship instantaneously. The heroes somehow survive though. The rules of reality are warped and the heroes move on to what the area around Entropy. As they approach they notice the warps in reality and see that sections of worlds are floating through. Monsters and ships all are visible. The heroes land on a small floating chunk of land. There they hear an ominous warning from Entropy to turn back and use their final moments wisely. Then Entropy creates a number of monsters that attack the heroes. They make quick work of them, but when they do, the monsters turn into black mist which threatens to destroy the heroes. They escape from the floating island and arrive at another piece of floating earth.

This floating rock quickly comes under attack by an armada of alien ships. The heroes are barely able to dodge the attacks and leap away. As they plummet, an enormous serpentine dragon comes up from below. It shoots forth beams of fire from its eyes that are so powerful that they are even able to hurt the flame manipulating hero Scorpion. As the monster comes up, the Dialectic creates a disk-like platform for everyone to gather upon where they surround Mona who whisks them away via teleportation at the last moment before the massive dragon swallows the disk. The heroes move forward once more and arrive up on another set of islands locked together with chains.

From the ether the shape of Entropy forms. He reaches down and shapes from the ground four figures. Thanos, Stellianos, Hulk, and King Arthur. The heroes fight against these mimics. The duplicates seem to have all of the memories, powers, and abilities of the four individuals. The heroes are able to defeat the duplicates, but they nearly destroy all of the heroes. As they are taking a brief breath after defeating them, Entropy appears from above and slides his hand across the ground and starts to reassemble the Hulk, Thanos, Stellianos, and King Arthur. Our heroes panic, knowing they can not defeat them again, when Harbinger and Dialectic move into the glowing sigils and disappear. The other heroes are left behind and fight the duplicates once more, but the battle goes against them and they start to lose. Death seems immenient. On the other side, they enter a space of white nothingness that continues forever.

Dialectic and Harbinger, both on their last legs, scan the area. They see Entropy and Gravitation come into view suddenly, and they begin to fight. Entropy and Gravitation use the sun, moons, galaxies, black holes, and more of the universe to pummel each other. While this is going on above them, Harbinger empowers Dialectic with greater strength and agility with his catalytic conversion power. Dialectic rushes forward and pushes towards the glowing gold orb that pulsates with power. Dialectic runs a gauntlet of dangerous challenges and makes it to the pulsing heart of the universe and reappears in a new space where they talk to another entity who seems to know much about them. After a few minutes, the heroes are whisked away and reappear with their ship intact in Alberta, Canada.
