Our heroes have arrived in Metropolis, checked into a hotel and just interrupted a Vampire attack. So far, so nice and peaceful. Time to mix things up a little!
Doc Pliable, Overclock, Rough Diamond, Johnny Cool and Mudpuppet return to the hotel where they finally check in with Batman.
”There’s definitely a Vampire here, and a powerful one.”
”Too busy to think to contact me then.”
Bats fills them in with what he knows so far. There’s still no sign of Superman anywhere on the planet, and his supernatural contacts say there’s an increased amount of necrotic activity around the Metropolis area. It is drawing Undead (and worse) like moths to a flame. He tells them to deal with this quickly otherwise they may have hordes of vampires, zombies and ghouls to deal with on the streets of Metropolis.
“That will make Superman unhappy. Worse still, I will be unhappy. Deal with it.”
So, no pressure then.
It’s about 2am but for some reason the heroes don’t feel like sleeping. Time to hit the streets again. Doc Pliable takes the high ground to act as scout, using his super-elastic arms like web-slingers to swing from building to building while Johnny Cool and The Gang roam the streets. I’m feeling kind, so give them each an in-ear communicator, courtesy of Wayne Enterprises.
Leaves whirl from nowhere and a sudden chill blast of salt air passes through you. A small tornado – no more than man height – forms just off the ground in front of you, and as it dissipates, a woman wearing skintight black with a pale face and long white flowing hair appears. you recognise her instantly: Silver Banshee!
Oh my. I do believe my next words were “Roll Initiative!”
Coming Up: Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!
