Breaking Bonds

Prelude
Here’s what you know...

6 months ago, some unknown force attacked the Avengers at the mansion across from Central Park. This occurred after earlier disasters were witnessed, including a large explosion which brought S.H.I.E.L.D. to the scene, preventing any details from trickling out to the public at large. Witnesses did report seeing several noteworthy heroes making their way to the site of the mansion some time after the explosion, including the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel. There were reports of other hero sightings as well, but due to the reclusive nature of some of those heroes, confirmation of their presence is next to impossible to obtain. All that is known is that sometime that evening, there was a massive burst of light and everything within a certain radius was gone. The heroes, the S.H.I.E.L.D. forces, the buildings, the trees. Gone. A few unconfirmed reports from witnesses did state seeing a lone figure making its way away from the Mansion on-foot but the details are slim and varied enough to be dismissed as paranoia and/or the desire for short term media attention. A nation mourned the loss of so many of this world’s most dedicated protectors with a week-long candlelight vigil.

Known individuals or teams that have not been sighted since the event include all active Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Moon Knight, Beast, Doctor Strange, Nick Fury, Black Panther, Spider-Woman, Ms. Marvel, Thor, the Hulk among many others. It is not clear if all of these disappearances are related to the event of that one night as there has been no confirmation as to whether many of these individuals were present at the time of the event.

The event had been referred to as Disassembly Day by some news publications and has since caught on and is now part of the public vernacular.

It can be noted that shortly after the Avengers were lost, the Baxter Building seemed to fold in upon itself before eventually vanishing altogether. S.H.I.E.L.D. officers have been stationed on the scene ever since and no news outlets have yet been granted access.

Also of note, but most likely irrelevant, is the short lived but unprecedented 7.0 magnitude earthquake that shook up the hills just north of the Fort Campbell Army Military base in Kentucky which occurred almost directly after the flash that wiped out Avengers Mansion.

5 months ago Dr. Kavita Rao introduces the cure for the mutant gene that has been “corrupting the healthy tissue of nearly 14 million human beings”. This drug, publically referred to as “Hope” was made available for public use in the United States within an unprecedented 30 days of its announcement and countless mutants flocked to the various “Hope Centers” that sprung up around the country despite the vocal protests of mutant leaders such as X-Man, Scott Summers.

As of 2 months ago, the serum has been made available in nearly every country, regardless of their political or economic status.

Last month, an assault on the United Nations by several Genoshian mutants lead by ex-Avenger, Quicksilver and calling themselves the “New Brotherhood” resulted in over 100 deaths including most of the in-session Security Counsel before being driven off by several London based heroes, the now public Weapon-X team and the once unstoppable villain, Juggernaut. Of note is Quicksilver’s now public declaration that the Avengers killed his father, Magneto and his sister, the famous Avenger, Scarlet Witch. This assault resulted in two significant events.

1. The superhero team called Excalibur was officially formed and sanctioned by the United Nations as the world’s premier peacekeeping force. The team is jointly operated by the newly UN supported Weapon-X program and lead by the original Captain Britain, with Peter Wisdom, Juggernaut, Dazzler and Weapon-X soldier, Chamber as charter members and operates out of London, England. This team operates outside of S.H.I.E.L.D. control and reports directly to the UN.
2. Due to the growing public fear now that the most well known non-mutant heroes are gone, the Hope cure is now mandatory for every mutant incarcerated within a member state if they are deemed a threat to public safety by the newly established UN security counsel. Several dissenting member states have threatened to withdraw from the UN in protest, but this has only delayed the implementation of the act while talks continue. The “Hope Mandate” is expected to go into effect in 3 days.

4 unexpected heroes rushed to the aid of overwhelmed S.H.I.E.L.D. agents when an unexplained power surge blacks out half the city and prompts a mass prisoner breakout from the “top secret” super villain detention facility, The Raft.

While the heroes manage to save some lives and prevent most of the prisoners from escaping, many of the world’s most dangerous villains are now on the loose.

Who was behind the breakout? How did they overcome S.H.I.E.L.D.’s defenses? Will Shadowbox be a courteous roommate? Some of these questions may be answered, some may not.

The only thing we know for sure is someone’s going to get hit in the face. A lot.

Screwed Savagely - 07/08/12 Recap
oh noes! Construct denials of DOOM!

Deciding to pursue escaped prisoner, Karl Lykos directly instead of confronting the one that broke him out, Electro, our heroes file paperwork and get away with a brand new untested SHIELD jet-transport prototype. They then proceed to crash it smack dab in the middle of the Savage Land.

Separated by the crash, Will and Cha-Ka are ambushed by velociraptors who don’t do much more than annoy them. Meanwhile, Rick is almost eaten by Grumpy but is saved by Holly who shoots it in the back with a boom-stick.

After the team regroups around the crash site, they argue for an inordinate amount of time about whether to seek out possible aid from Savage Land native, Ka-Zar or search the most likely areas for Sauron and his cronies.

While they bicker like school children, they are jumped by a horde of Savage Land Mutates led by some lame X-men villains. Although there is some pretty heavy back and forth during the fight, Nipple-Pinching Mutate, Vertigo gave Flamestrike nosebleeds and made Iron Maiden question her sexuality(or lack thereof), knocking them both out of the fight. Jim and Shadowbox managed to keep the remaining villains occupied and even bring down Mortal Kombat legend, Barbarus before Vertigo shut them down with a heavy Plot Hammer of nausea and unconsciousness.

Captured by the enemy, our heroes are certainly going to wake up in a bit of a pickle.

The Prelude ended on an unexpected note.

“Itza Tweezt!!”

Cliffhanger interrupted by a side-story/prequal. Old system is new to you. Characters are created(mostly) and plans are made(hardly).

6 Months Ago...

Flashback/Side-Story session utilizing the classic 1980s-90s Marvel Super Heroes RPG rules
Teaser: Marvel Gaiden

Summary of the events from suplimental mission report filed by agent “Pylon”


YOU MUST CONSTRUCT ADDITIONAL PYLONS!” – A story by MolotovH

Taking a break, getting some munchies. Earthquake! Unexpected disaster devastating to local pancake, taxi businesses. Vox steals a Humvee and does a pop-and-lock, then B.I.L.L. steals a Chinook.

Chinook explodes. (Nobody is surprised.) B.I.L.L. turns Water-Man into crash-foam.

But then… Security robots! “You have no chance to survive, make your time!”

B.I.L.L. explodes. (Nobody is surprised.) Vox gets knee-capped, but crawls away. Water-Man and Black Hawk lay down smoke grenades and suppressive fire. Pylon punches a tank in the over used word for Pee-Pee and makes him like it. Pylon throws another robot through a concrete wall, “OH YEEEAH!!!” Third robot gets “shot all to Hell” by “gun-wielding maniac,” says local grandmother who claims to have witnessed this savage attack on our nation’s freedom from the relative safety of her back porch swing.

S.H.I.E.L.D is a bunch of over used word for Pee-Pees, won’t send back-up. Water-Man puts B.I.L.L. back together – nobody is sure why. B.I.L.L. and Pylon’s Excellent Adventure results in robot being crushed by massive rock. Water-Man turns into a rope and everyone goes down the hole.

The fate of machinery with blinking lights is debated. A security turret is subverted. Files and paperwork are found. Captain America and Howard Stark are implicated. J. Edgar Hoover’s negligee is not found. Hot, sexy, twisted metal is traversed. Nuclear fallout and radiation poisoning is suspected.

S.H.I.E.L.D is still a bunch of over used word for Pee-Pees, won’t send back-up.

Everyone goes back to the top. Evil crazy flying robot attack!

S.H.I.E.L.D is STILL a bunch of over used word for Pee-Pees, won’t send back-up. B.I.L.L. gets blown up, does not get to shrink Ultron. (Nobody is surprised.)

Black Hawk’s bull’s-eye does not affect Ultron. Pylon’s rock-throwing does not affect Ultron. Vox’s sexy dancing does not affect Ultron. Water-Man turning into a puddle does not affect Ultron. Ultron being awesome does not affect Ultron.

+ Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged exposure to Ultron.
+ Ultron may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds.
+ Ultron contains a liquid core, which, if exposed due to rupture, should not be touched, inhaled, or looked at.
+ Do not use Ultron on concrete.
+ Discontinue use of Ultron if any of the following occurs:
itching
vertigo
dizziness
tingling in extremities
loss of balance or coordination
slurred speech
temporary blindness
profuse sweating
heart palpitations
+ If Ultron begins to smoke, get away immediately. Seek shelter and cover head.
+ Ultron may stick to certain types of skin.
+ When not in use, Ultron should be returned to its special container and kept under refrigeration. Failure to do so relieves the makers of Ultron, Wacky Products Incorporated, and its parent company, Global Chemical Unlimited, of any and all liability.
+ Ingredients of Ultron include an unknown glowing substance which fell to Earth, presumably from outer space.
+ Ultron has been shipped to our troops in Saudi Arabia and is also being dropped by our warplanes on Iraq.
+ Do not taunt Ultron.
+ Ultron comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Ultron disappears. Everybody is surprised.

Water-Man puts B.I.L.L. back together again – again, nobody is sure why.

End of report.


SHIELD file addendum. After reviewing the reports of all event-active SHIELD agents, it has been determined with 98.7% certainty that the entity encountered by the ground team prior to the SHIELD researchers’ arrival was not in fact designation Ultron, nor any of its known variations. Subsequently, it is strongly advised that Agent Pylon be immediately reviewed for extensive phsychological evaluation pending his team’s return from their current assignment.
