Resurrection Protocol Plot in Tales of Justice | World Anvil

Resurrection Protocol



The heroes had a brief rest in the weeks after stopping Dr. Hogan Grimm and his mad plan to turn the urban jungle of Metropolis into a real one! A well-earned rest where life returned to what passes as normal for heroes in the city of Metropolis.
But, True Believers, the key ingredient to his schemes remained in AIM’s clutches. The infamous Lazarus Water. It was spirited away to an AIM lab before the heroes could intercept it.
Now, four weeks later, the heroes get a reliable lead. The mysterious Metropolis vigilante, the Shadow, points Wyldfire to a likely place for an AIM research lab. The neighborhood-sized sinkhole in Metropolis called the Hollows.
Lazarus Water is a strange substance, best known to the assassins of the League of Shadows. Supposedly, it can regenerate any wound, even severed limbs. Extend a person’s lifespan by centuries, and perhaps even raise the dead. If any of that is true, there would be no end to the inadvisable science that AIM could create!
A mysterious mutagen in the hands of the one criminal organization who might have just put the ‘mad’ in ‘mad science’?
This looks like a job for Wyldfire!

This is Not Stan Lee saying ...

    Wyldfire shut down Dr. Grimm’s mad plans to “Green” Metropolis with a little help from unusual corners. But they failed to recover the serum that started it all: a sample of the near-mythical Lazarus Water. That wound up in hand of Advanced Idea Mechanics.
    The heroes knew the morality-challenged mad scientists would try something with the liquid. They also knew they had to stop them before that could happen. But where did AIM take it?
    A lead appeared a few weeks later from the mysterious vigilante, the Shadow.
    According to him, AIM has been spending time in and around both King’s Row in Hob’s Bay and the Hollows, the neighborhood-sized sinkhole south of Hob’s Bay. The Shadow tells the team, he’ll take the King’s Row investigation, if they will tackle the Hollows.
    From what he has seen, it’s likely AIM has taken over and refurbished a half-buried office building partway to the bottom of the Hollows. That, and a trio of waterfront buildings at the edge of King’s Row, are the likely candidates. They have been hard at work experimenting on a new type of armored vests equipped with vials of slightly glowing green fluid.
    All Wyldfire has to do is…
    … using their wits, cunning, and other resources, investigate the possibly AIM base of operations looking to study the Lazarus Water.
    … once found, slip inside to get the Lazarus Water away from AIM before they use it in one of their mad schemes. Failing that, ruin the water so it can’t be used by anyone.

    I really like the comic book theme and the classic idea of evil comic villians.
