Paradigm Shift II: Official Hero Boogaloo

Post by Flagmauth on Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:22 pm


PARADIGM SHIFT






THREAD II









It's April 8th, 2017 and Brockton Bay, NH, is an okay place to live. Recently, the local Parahuman Response Team office issued a formal announcement that a new hero group had been founded in the city and was beginning operations alongside the Protectorate and New Wave. Impetus, originally a vigilante group, had only three official members:

  • Monolith, the group's founder and leader, had super strength, super toughness and could turn intangible.
  • Sonorous, the second-in-command, had the ability to generate and manipulate sound waves.
  • Sandstorm, the group's only female member, with the ability to change her body into animate sand and back.

At least, this was the official information available from the PRT. Impetus' website went into a little bit more detail, though it mysteriously continued to fail to mention the former supervillains Uber & Leet being affiliated with the group. Additionally, the team had just lost two members. Levitate had formally resigned, while Wargame had simply stopped turning up at the group's headquarters.

Fortunately, Monolith and Sonorous received a note from Uber & Leet saying that Impetus' recruitment page had recently received two messages from capes expressing interest in joining up. Wasn't that convenient?

Sonorous looked over the note. "New blood huh? I'll take one, you take the other?"

Convenient, and rather suspect.

That was Monolith's first opinion to the messages. Then again, there's no point in hitting a gift horse in the mouth. He nodded to Sonorus and went down to find Ober and Leet in their little hideout playing some sort of video game that involved knights in armour and some giant.... was that a tree?

Ignoring it for a second, he gets one of their attention.

"Did the messages have any place where they wanted to meet?"

"What mess- oh. Nah. They figured we'd tell them where to go to meet." Uber said, not looking away from the screen as Leet narrowly avoided death.

London nods, leaning towards the screen that didn't have someone swinging a sword.

"Can you tell me a bit more about them? Beyond that they want to join."

"One of them says his name's Grant and he has some kind of sensory processing power. The way he worded it it sounds like he's a Thinker, I guess. The other didn't say his name, only that he has electric powers. And like I said, both of them wanted us to tell them where to meet, so it doesn't sound like they're setting up a trap or anything."

London nods and glances to Tom.

"With how things are going, we can't exactly waste much time. I'll take the electric, and you can have the thinker."

He turns back to Uber and Leet.

"Have the electric meet me at Cafe Janes in about two hours if he can. Tom can pick the place for Grant."

Stan pulled out his phone and started typing something, presumably what London had just said.




A few hours later and Monolith was at Cafe Janes, while Sonorous was just entering Burgatory.

Sarah Conner entered Cafe Janes in her make-shift costume. She had made it a point to show up 30 seconds before the meetings intended time - to avoid the awkwardness of sitting in a hastily crafted costume in the middle of an "ordinary crowd". Needless to say, it didn't take her very long to spot her interviewer as he stood out from the rest of the Cafe's occupants in his full costume. As soon as she spotted him she waved shyly in his direction, although he'd probably already gathered that she was here for the interview based on her appearance. Then she made her was slowly towards Monolith.

The one that they assumed was named Grant walked it wearing what seems to be casual everyday clothes with the finishing touch of pair of goggles resting on his forehead. The goggles as one can see seem to have interchangeable lenses. Grant sat down at a table set for two waiting.

One of the few perks of living in Brockton Bay, you could go almost anywhere in full costume and very few people bat an eye. That is of course, so long as you were a hero. Some gave him dark glares, others however were taking the moment to actually thank him for his work.

Something about beating an Empire 88 member if he remembered correctly. As fun as it was, he was here on business.

So when the new cape in the new costume came in, he straightened up. When she waved he waved back. He would have smiled if he didn't have his mask, but no one would be able to tell anyway.

He gestured to the seat and waited for her to sit down.

"Nice costume work," he mentions as she gets closer.

Always open with casual conversation. Make people feel relaxed, easier to talk that way.

Tom scanned the room until he found Grant, walking over to the table he sat down across from him. 

"Sweet goggles."

He blinks out of whatever he was staring at nothing for. He looks up at Sonorus directly in his eyes, "Are you the recruiter I am waiting for?"

Sarah sat down in front of Monolith "Thanks. Best I could do in short order."

Sarah then looked at Monolith for him to start the interview process - not bothering to look at the menu. Frankly, she had no idea what such a process might look like.

Monolith waited and leaned back in his chair.

"It's not half bad, better than my first addition," he comments, still keeping up the casual persona.

"But before we begin, I have to ask. Why Impetus? You're not exactly lacking options, not in this city."

Sarah smiled "I imagine you know why I didn't apply to New Wave. Particularly considering most of my family lives here or in nearby cities."

She seemed to get uncomfortable, but hid it well by pretending to scan the menu. She absently ordered a water from the waiter before giving her response "um...when I gained my powers...well, it was in part because of someone who escaped Protectorate custody..."

"And he wasn't even one of the stronger ones..." Sarah finished. She figured that Monolith would understand why she had her reservations of the Protectorate.

"It's rude to not say your own name first before asking a stranger's." He turn his head and stares as the cashier took money and was getting the customer's change. "It's Grant Morrison."

Monolith listened intensely, allowing every word to come through without problem. Eventually, he nodded.

"You want justice?"

"Because you already know mine. Anyway, tell me Grant, what can you do?" Tom distorts the sound around them to make sure they aren't overheard.

"As do I, but you know that some things that you'll have to do to ensure that, they won't be nice. I won't force you, but you need to be prepared for that. Are you ok with that?" Monolith asks.

"Yes...I think so" Sarah responded. She was sure walking in, that she would/could do everything in her power to help those around her. But now she was forced to say her conviction out loud, she wasn't 100% sure anymore.
