A solitary figure was creeping along the roof of the biggest jewelry store in Queen City to get to the skylight. Once there, the figure was looking around the base of it for a connection to an alarm system. The figure wasn’t aware of another figure floating in the air a few dozen feet above of her.
Wow, I almost missed whoever that is down there. There has to be some kind of power at play to keep them so quiet. That’s what I need to get next. The figure hovering in the air licked her lips at the prospect of gaining power as the ring on her right hand glowed faintly before she started to descend to the rooftop.
The figure on the rooftop had finally disarmed the alarm and had gotten the rope out of the bag carefully set down next to the skylight as a hand started to feel along the sides for a catch of some kind before the figure felt something moving around from behind. Spinning around

“Now that is an impressive forest.” Aztoria spoke with both heads in unison as the group stood at the edge of a tree line made up of dozens of tall and ancient looking trees. “There is supposed to be a kingdom in there? How will you find it?” She continued as both heads looked at Sahlia.
“Simple. Hali and I will walk in. If they’re anything like the elves from where I’m from, they will have patrols that will see us.” Sahlia was speaking to everyone as she tried to look through the foliage a little. “All we have to do is talk to the patrol and see if they’ll let us in. Don’t worry; I’ll vouch for you three as well.”
“What if they aren’t like the elves you are expecting them to be?” Ko responded sounding a little worried. “That would be bad, shooting first and maybe asking questions later.” Kei chimed

Sahlia was happy for the first time in over a century. She had managed to seize control of the empire through some incredibly old tricks around the year 3000, then proceeded to go on to take over the rest of the galaxy over the course of the next 500 years. Then a peaceful reign of 1000 years was enough to make Sahlia bored of winning. She had the whole universe in all of her hands but didn't know what to do with it all. She knew things had gone too far when one sector had decided to rename itself Sahlia in honor of her and the religion worshipping her as a divine being that could do no wrong was set up. The thing that really surprised her was when she found out that the priestesses of the order had their minds transferred into vat grown bodies that looked exactly like hers. The entire order had become essentially conjoined to each other as they found it took two women to run the body even half as we

“You’ve taken this too far, sir” the man said. “An innocent man is going to die, is it really worth it”?
“Are you getting a weak stomach Pierce?” the other man responded, his back towards his inquisitor as he gazed out the window of his office. “This is what’s best for the company and that’s my job. Don’t start growing a conscious now.”
“But sir-“he said.
“Pierce, don’t question me. Or else you might end up being his cellmate. Now get out of my office!” the other man demanded.
Pierce walked out of the office and towards his cubicle down the hall.

Four horses carefully picked their way through the underbrush as the women riding them were on the lookout for a scouting party for the Elven capital. The dash across the open plains had been done in silence but now that they had slowed down, they felt a little more relaxed.
“So, you’re still sore about getting captured? We all realize there was blame to be pinned on everyone and we apologized for not helping you.” Aztoria was riding along next to Hali, noticing she was still sulking as she rode along as well.
“You could have tried to do something to stop me from charging off. Use some of that rope all of you had.” Hali snapped back.
“Yes, and you could have mentioned what you were thinking before you ran off, catching us unprepared.” KeiKo rode up on the other side of Hali as Ko spoke.

It had been a while since Melinda Crane had a vacation. So when she received the invitation from her friend, and former Guardian, White Owl, she couldn't reply yes quick enough. It had been a while since had visited with White Owl and nearly as long since she had been in Queen City. As she walked the streets looking in the various shops and boutiques for a new dress, she couldn't stop smiling.
"I hope Ultra Woman is there as well," she thought to herself.
It was also nice to be in a city that had no idea who Mindy Marvel was. It was difficult for her to shop like this in Angel Falls, but here the people don't give her a second look.
Her excitement was tempered very quickly when she saw Blockhead. It had been few years since her last run in with the big brawler whose name was partially inspired by his super strength and concrete exterior...and partially because of his below average intelligence. He was charging down the street after stealing two conta

Soviet Superwoman knew she was flying into a trap. Getting a tip on possible 4th Reich activity, including a description of Genocide in her non-powered form? It is never that easy. The question is who is trying to trap her and for what reason. The only way to answer that is to spring the trap and see who appears. Lin should be there shortly afterwards with the AFPD should she need help.
Olga arrived at the warehouse specified in the tip. Nothing seemed out of place so far. Forgoing subtlety she crashed through the wall into the main area, quickly looking around for the ambush.
"My, that was fast. Thank you for coming so quickly," came a voice from one end of the room.
Olga turned to see who it was. "Paler! Why did you lure me here?"

Escalation is a super-villainess who can be used as a opponent for superheroes of various power levels (and may fight other villains, under the right circumstances).
The character was originally created for a City of Heroes storyarc written in the Mission Architect system, which lets players create storylines (Arc #6143, "Escalation" for anyone who plays the game).
In the short story "Escalation Falls In", a copy of Escalation was transplanted to Angel Falls.
What follows is a description of Escalation and her abilities, to make it easier to use her in Angel Falls stories, with particular emphasis on explaining the clone stages.
Escalation is the supervillain name of Dr. Erica Lashion.
She chose the name "Escalation" because after being defeated by a hero, she likes to come back for the next fight in a stronger form for the rematch.

Ultra Woman blinked against the sudden flood of light carving a path through the blanket of darkness. She tried to look up, and was met with a colossal throbbing at the back of her head. The world spun. She was dizzy, pained, and felt like she was about to be sick. Mercifully, bowing her head back down made the pain stop.
Her memory was hazy. She wasn't sure how, but someone had knocked her unconscious. She knew that much. She was chained to a rigid chair, and struggling against her bonds caused the pain to return.
It was easier to just sit there, head bowed, the light filling her vision, waiting for whatever fate her captors had planned for her.
Struggling only brought agony. It was easier to just do what they wanted. Resistance was futile. There was no point even trying.
So she sat. Time was difficult to measure when everything was black, but for a single fixed, steadily pulsing light, shifting colours every few seconds.

The villainess laughs as I struggle against my ropes in vain. I mmmmph loudly through my gag, hoping someone can hear me but my futile cries just make her laugh more.
She pulls out a gun and points it in my direction. I struggle furiously but my pathetic struggles only cause the ropes to twist tighter. A tear falls down my cheek. I know guys aren't supposed to cry but real men don't get beat up and kidnapped by girls either. I'm in extreme distress. No one can save me now.
Just then, my girlfriend rushes in. "Let him go!" she cries as she rushes for the villainess. My sexy girlfriend kicks the gun out of her hands. She then punches my captor in the stomach causing her to crumble to the ground.
"No one manhandles my man!" she says as she gives the villainess a final kick to knock her out.

The evening moon slowly began to rise into the evening as the empowered Amazon Arrow followed her latest mystical cue to a new city. Ever since draining the hidden oracle abilities of that arcane mage some time ago, she had kept herself on course as those powers guided her to her next objective. Although a tiny part of her mind still called at her to stop this overzealous quest to become stronger by draining the powers of villains AND heroes, Chryseis kept on seeking the level of power she needed... for what was to come.
Presently, Chryseis landed on a rooftop in the downtown area of Chicago, and looked about for her latest prey. Her assimiliated mystical gift had told her that something was going to present itself in this area for her to challenge and defeat, but exactly what that was, her appropriated gift had not shown her.

Looking out over the city full of terrified, insects, Ultragirl couldn't help but smile.
She soared above the frenzied masses, her cape billowing in the savage gusts of wind as she tore through them, moving like a bullet from a gun. They all looked up as she passed them, occasionally flying low enough to stoop to their level, only to knock them further down and soar skywards again, a reminder of how insignificant they were.
She was a god to them.
An angel of destruction, all flame red hair, flowing black cloak and royal blue with silver trim.
She neared the appartment building formerly home to her protégé, AlphaGirl. Laughing, she plowed through the building, observing as it crumbled in her wake, toppled and, finally, came crashing down.

It was 10:17 PM. All the local bombing had ceased hours ago, yet the fires continue to smolder and burn. What remained of the city’s firefighters did their best to rescue survivors as well as put out the flames. Among them were the few military soldiers, as well as civilians and the strange new guest. Her Red and Blue uniform seemed untouched as she helped lift heavy rubble, extinguished large flames, and rescue as well as healing the injured. Unfortunately she couldn't bring back the dead, and the heavy toll of lost life was collected. Also, more gun placements were set up for the inevitable bombing that would start again at daylight. Back at the compound, many were grateful for Amazonia's aid, while some were suspicious of her presence. Some questioned why she came; that she could end this slaughter with the abilities she had by simply flying to Germany and destroying Hitler. Yet there were those knew exactly who she is, and she could not do that. Knowing now that a disguise wo

"I swear you can't rely on people anymore. You arrange for people in the middle east to overthrow the regimes that have been in place for decades and they can't even do it right." Twin female voices echoed through the mainly empty room as the figure was reading several news stories about the turmoil going on half a world away. As a dual sigh escaped her lips, the screen on the right switched to a very private bulletin board frequented by known arms dealers across the world.A Matter of Pride4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

She knew she was different than the others in the stalls nearby; the ornate apparel she was wearing attested to that fact. She was special somehow, though she wasn’t sure why.

Not thinking about it, on the other hand, didn’t hurt at all; and so, she was trying less and less to recall what it was that was missing.

Only ten short minutes had passed since a huge explosion had rocked the once-peaceful terrain near the Lonely Point Naval Base, resting just within the outer islands of Angel Falls and its main districts. Out of that massive explosion, unseen by anyone, a reddish-colored metallic form had launched itself into the sky, flying off into the heavens while carrying a human body cradled in its massive left arm. No one knew exactly what had happened there, but an event had been put in motion that Angel Falls was about to become a full-time participant.
The reddish-colored metallic form continued to soar through the skies above the expanse of Angel Falls, carrying its precious cargo toward the nearest medical facility it could recognize. As the armored being drew closer and closer to the hospital it had chosen for its destination, the badly burned form tucked safe
