New Forays pt.2
“Entering dead-zone.” Cicero chirped as the drone hovered over the section of Angel Falls known as the North End. Of particular interest was a small shopping center it’s camera focused in on. Several large machines had been scanned inside, and they must be the source of the cellular jamming signal.
“Uplink with the satellite.” the Operator commanded.
The shopping center looked quite typical from the exterior. The majority of the shops were vacant with lease signs in the windows. There was a coffee joint on the end of the strip, near the intersection. It had a steady stream of young clientele, most likely college students from the nearby Angels Fall University.
The drone was a small VTOL model, that the Operator had designed personally. Not much larger than a toy remote controlled helicopter. It was minimal, stripped down, when compared to what he was used to using. Yet if he wanted to keep a low profile it was perfect. Small, and silent.

Old Soldiers-Part 1
Somewhere between worlds…
The grass was green on both sides. The hills more verdant than could've been thought in any life. It seemed a paradise beyond reckoning. A viridescent cascade, painting the countryside a bright jade, as far as the eye could see, in either direction. To the west the grassy slopes rolled into a white shoreline, that was washed by a low-tide of cerulean waves.
“What more could he want?” the Delphic voice asked in a rhetorical fashion. Her eyes shone blue, the only visible sight from underneath the hood of her white robe. She stood at the foot of the grassy slope, looking out over the waves and off into the horizon. This place caused a sensation of serenity to wash over her. It’s sway was so strong, that even one such as herself was moved by it.
“He doesn't know what he wants, my lady.” The voice came from behind her. She turned to see the source, and she smiled. The man was of a regal bearing, slightly tall for one of his linea

So much of Diomedes life is shrouded in myth and legend, that few people can discern the truth from the embellished. The stories agree on several facts though. What is known is as follows.
The man behind the legend, was born in ancient Argos, once a great city in Greece. His father was king, and while he was still a boy, led a coalition of seven of states in a war against the Greek city of Thebes. The war did not go well for the ‘Seven against Thebes’, and Diomedes father, along with the other six kings died.
At the funeral, the sons of all seven, made a group vow, that they would seek vengeance against the Thebans. Ten years passed, and the princes-turned-kings, gathered to

“Firewall breached.” announced Cicero’s monotone voice.
The progress update was displayed on the large monitor in front of the hacker. He stood on a dais, with three immense computer monitors, feeding a constant stream of data. One display was directly in front of him, connected to the wall, while the other two were situated on either side of him.
“Bribe the gatekeeper, then move onto the next target.” he ordered.
“Understood.” Cicero replied, comprehending his operators code for creating a backdoor into the the secure database, for later re-entry.
These databases were critical to his livelihood, and had to be cracked one-by-one if he planned on jump-starting his business back up. He had considered waiting a bit longer before opening up shop again, but the restlessness had finally become too much for him. The information highway was always teeming with traffic, and he couldn’t bear just sitting

Prelude Part Three: Stranded
Arion Infiltration Ship
Outer ’Sol’ System
One month ago.
The ship came out of the wormhole with a moderate lurch that let Adara know they had entered the edges of Earths solar system. The ’sloop’ they had been issued for the mission had a sleek profile and a low energy emission engine. The vessel was designed for the singular purpose of penetrating enemy held space and remaining undetected.
Adara was currently in the cargo bay examining the breastplate of her newly issued armor. She was used to wearing camo-suits that would distort the light around it’s wearer, making them harder to spot with the naked eye, but this armor lacked the technology she was used to. It was a more blunt piece of hardware that served one rudimentary purpose and little else. Still,she was sure she could upgrade it with something. ’Maybe some sort of energy shielding or hacking apparat-’

Something for the Weekend
I’m trying to get a feel for how the voting-age people of :iconAngel-FallsDA: would respond to a Metahuman Registration Act proposal, similar to Marvel Universe’s Mutant Registration Act and their later expansion, the Superhero Registration Act.  I think it’s a fairly safe bet that something along these lines would be proposed, but what form it would take, how much popular support it could muster, and how restrictive it would be are all questions that bear investigation.
 
Let me be clear: I do not propose to identify or delineate the actual provisions of a bill of this nature at this time; for one thing, it ought to develop over time, and the best way for that to happen is for the community to start thinking about it and discussing it.  To that end, I’d like to throw the question out there for your OCs to answer; further, I’ll list the responses of my characters so you can get a sense of where the issue will stand if no

Monolith Profile

Monolith


Known Aliases: Martin Talbot

Height: 6’ 1

Weight: 225 lbs

Hair: Brown

Eyes: Brown

Ethnicity:  American


Appearance:

Marcus is a white male in his late 20’s, with brown hair and brown eyes. He He has broad shoulders, wide jawline, and a stocky build. He is in athletic shape and is well-toned.


Personal Quote:

“Compensating? I don't follo- Oh you are fucking dead!” Needless to say the interview ended rather abruptly.


Theme Song:

“Evil Ways”- Blue Saraceno


Background/History:

The Talbot’s are a career-criminal family. Originally hailing from St. Louis, at least three generations of Talbots have found themselves on the wrong side of the law. Each posses a rap sheet as long as their arms.


Around the age of seventeen, Martin began noticing peculiar changes occurring. At first they were subtle, and escaped almost everyone else's attention. Then one fateful day, during an armored truck heist, Martin's powers activated in a moment of anger. The next thing he knew, he was twelve feet tall.


Martin was the first and only member of his family that has demonstrated a genetic mutation and develop superpowers.  This didn't sit well with the rest of his kin. They preferred to ply their trade with a degree of anonymity, and having a crew member who can walk around at over fifty feet, attracts a little too much attention.


After being excommunicated from his family, he decided to strike out on his own. In time he learned to control his abilities, and established himself as the costumed criminal known as Monolith. Slowly he jas been making his way south, with his next stop being Dream Haven.


Personality:

Martin is an amoral, self-centered, glory seeking egotist. He enjoys a good fight, and loves a good tussle with superheroes. The payday means little to him if he doesn't get the publicity or credit for gig.


Powers/Abilities:


Size Manipulation- Marcus has the power to change the size of himself while preserving his body’s proportions. His strength and durability is proportional to the size assumed, but so is his density. He has shown a total of two separate benchmarks. He can maintain a maximum height of about fifty feet indefinitely, and height of about a hundred for roughly an hour before burning himself out.
