    Olympic Games postponed 2 years
    Sporting Event / Competition

    Because of the appearance of metahuman athletes, debates about the qualifications for Olympic competitors having a "extreme genetic advantage". Should people born with particularly athletic genes be allowed to compete? What about those who, through no fault of their own, became mutates? Is that any different from athletes whose trainers provide them with chemical boosts of a non-mutagenic nature? Where does the Olympic Committee draw the line?

    While technically, a naturally-born mutant is considered a valid candidate according to the current Olympic guidelines, such a strong stigma against metahuman competitors is present to this day that few are willing to subject themselves to the genetic tests and background scrutiny involved.

    All of this process took so long that the Summer Olympics were delayed from their scheduled 1948 London, England event to happen in 1950 instead. Winter events still happen according to the original schedule, but all subsequent Summer Olympic events are on a two year delay.

    Blackjack, quickly becoming a well-known and gifted catburglar, impresses the leader of the Card Shark Syndicate, who invites the nineteen-year-old into his network as a Wild Card (albeit the boy starts at a low rank, equivalent to a King among the Face Cards). Blackjack quickly proves himself willing to learn from his peer the King of Diamonds, cheerful and patient and inventive.

     

    It is not until a few years later, when Blackjack officially outranks all of the Face Cards, that he starts to find out what the other suites do, especially Hearts (information gathering, interrogation, torture, money laundering and finances) and Spades (assassination). If it had been handled right, Blackjack might never have cared what harm is being done to strangers; something must have happened just exactly wrong.

    This turned out to not be any sort of euphemism at all. He had a potted daisy. He experimented on the effects of new, dangerous mutagenic street drug "Steel Breath" by mixing bits of it into the plant food for his daisy. Of course he talked to his plants while taking measurements and watering them.
    One day in the middle of August, the daisy talked back.
    A couple of days later, it extracted itself from the pot and went for a very wobbly walk across the campsite, got its own drink of water, then returned to its pot.

These heavy hitters, who call themselves "UniSols", are the result of a super soldier serum program that may have had its origins in the old Project Strongman notes. This latest duplication must not have gotten its subjects into the range of success reached with Captain America, because the UniSols are further enhanced with cybernetic technology and still fall short of the mark.

     

    They still prove a heavy threat to two off-duty heroes on their own.

     

    Knight Thrasher arrives to rescue his friends, turning a frantic scramble into a much more effective counter-attack. They find additional minions or associates or something of the unknown mastermind. The "UniSols" go down under the team tactics of Feral and Thrasher, left tied up with notes for NYPD arrest. Firestar takes one of the additional minions, a cat-man whom the UniSols called "Lynx", back to Metropolis with every intention of asking Dr. Gironde if she can keep the new cat as a pet.

    Revelations Inc
    Life, Crime

    Randall Kentis, official founder of the anti-metahuman movement "Revelations Inc" and secret sponsor of the somewhat more extreme grassroots terrorist organization "Friends of Humanity", launches himself to the international stage by attempting to physically relocate the United Nations building out of the corrupt, monster-worshipping state of New York.

     

    New Yorkers are not going to have some ignorant, authoritarian pseudoPuritan stomp on one of the greatest cities in the modern world.

     

    Knight Thrasher conclusively wins the hearts of his home city when, mostly on live television, he brings the Revelations Inc plot to a grinding hot; personally disables the bizarre machines being used to uproot the UN Building from its moorings; and, finally, satisfyingly, renders "Reverend Kentis" immobile and silent. All while keeping up a running commentary in the best tradition of the comic book industries native to this city since National Allied Publications, Inc., opened its doors in the early 1930s.

    Feral comes up with a plan to make one last try at stopping the Freak Murders serial killings: she'll take out a classified advertisement in a New York City tabloid, offering to let the killer go for her directly instead of making a "copycat". The first problem with her plan is that others besides the ((current)) killer show up to her proposed meeting. The second problem with her plan is that the Freak Murders were never the work of a single individual ... and evil, death-obsessed hypnotist villain Kadaver is ready to confront any idiot who dares challenge his "art".

    Lord Bayne Incident
    Metaphysical / Paranormal event

    A supervillain from another dimension, seeking a world where he can become the Ultimate Evil Overlord with less opposition which might be competent to stop his dastardly conquest, picks the wrong reality. Dr. Doom invites himself into the opposition, in the process realizing that he truly does not want to rule a world. He merely wants to not live under the moral obligation to oppose Reed Richards. No: Doom wants to live quietly in a space he completely controls, exploring his theories of superscience, and going down in history as the smartest person ever to use a soldering iron.

     

    During the ramp-up for this adventure, Jean-Claude Gironde discovers and unmakes numerous mental blocks and hypnotic commands implanted in Jarissa Venters' mind. This includes all of the villainous work Kadaver accomplished in the previous adventure, plus several things (but not all) from the Infinity Inc Hybrid Minion mental programming.

     

    Also during this adventure, villain henchman-for-hire Mime gets physically split into two people. Mime/Robert Ridderhoff remains an employee of Phoenix Industries working at the Gironde mansion, as part of his parole. Ghoul is now a cannibalistic shapeshifting villain who can no longer copy new powers. Ghoul leaves to work in high-mortality areas of the world, mostly urban areas of Colombia, as a do-anything flunky.

    Phoenix Industries announces medical breakthrough
    Technological achievement

    Dr. Jean-Claude Gironde, who has spent the past ten years unable to stand or walk after an attempted assassination, publicly returns from an overseas trip on crutches; a single press release states that he has undergone an experimental treatment developed by one of his privately-owned international firms, a research-based biotechnic lab, and will be applying for FDA approval to offer the new cybernetic chip to U.S. candidates as soon as in-house legal staff are satisfied that the patent was irrefutably established. He cannot really run, but he can now walk for reasonable amounts of time.

    This massively increases attempts by other business interests to make long-term business deals with Phoenix Industries. Or to try to find a way to force Phoenix Industries to become a publicly-held corporation, which might be bought out. Or to try to hire away anyone who works in any capacity even remotely associated with the cybernetic and medical divisions. Or to get their own project to a similar stage of viability.

    Death Trap du Jour
    Expedition

    Wyldfire has been sent on an ultra-secret rescue mission on an island not too far from Easter Island.

     
    This rocky, inhospitable island was the site of a secret archaeological dig. Preliminary reports were that it served as an observation point for the Nazi Reich during early parts of WWII, and then became a stopover for Nazi leaders escaping to the jungles of the Amazon. Red Skull probably worked out of here during the eighties or nineties.
    But before that, as the dismantle-villain-base company discovered, the deeper recesses of the complex may have been a viking shelter -- with strangely advanced water- and light-filtering systems. The archaeology team was trying to narrow down the origin civilization when a storm came through ... and they haven't been heard from since!

    The NK Incident
    Life, Relationship change

    Puma is on a multi-part international contract for a client in Golden Lotus which has gotten a couple weeks into the stage where he travels clandestinely, mostly on foot, across parts of the Eurasian continent where he absolutely ought not to be. Things are going according to plan -- not great, nothing to write songs about -- when his journey stumbles over an unexpected search party in a rural village.

     

    More accurately: he stumbles over the quarry for whom the search party is rousting the village.

     

    A certain leopard woman of his long, often-annoying acquaintance.

     

    Who tells him, before events force them apart again, that everyone else she knows has been murdered.
