Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green, mutant vagrant. You think you may have stumbled your way into a superhero brawl. All you wanted to do tonight was break into some C-list supervillain’s high security pad, lift a priceless and ancient artefact of dubious historicity, and get out so that you could deliver it to a DIFFERENT supervillain (sort of supervillain. Creeper’s certainly a villain, but you strain to refer to him in the same breath has the word ‘super’). There was a good cause driving you to all this, of course, but NY doesn’t seem to care, and has thrown at you the snappiest and wittiest (and shortest, apparently. Dude’s like 5’8”) of its superheroic denizens. So now Laura is punching and kicking at Spider-Man (mostly, though, at thin air) in the middle of a road, while he jumps around like a pyjama’d up buffoon and you sit nearby, your foot stuck fast to the tarmac by a sheet of webbing. Not exactly the ‘in and out’ scenario you were hoping for. >Hunger Level: 4>Current Funds: $15 at hand ($118.50 total)>[ ] Fake a heart attack.

Rolled 19So I dont stick around for the post thread banter. What powers did we get?
>>27678533Strength and claws.
>>27678504>not Nosferatu due to the whole Obfuscation deal
By the way, does our enhanced strenght + enhanced agility also increase our speed? I mean we basically are at the peak of the physical condition that a human can reach thanks to enhanced strenght and agility so I'd presume we can put as much force into our running as a human with such physique should.
>>27678556I personally think this is better picture.
>>27678564Speed might be a different power, but I.think technically we're slightly above cap murica level str and agi now.
>>27678578Just comparatively less skilled or experienced
>>27678402>18>HULK IS THE LUCKIEST“Hey, guys, you should”– you tug at the webbing coating your foot, putting your back and great deal of your breath into it –“I mean, this is just”– god this shit is tough, it can’t be natural nothing nature makes is this ridiculous –“you’re just being silly…” You trail off, breathing heavily in exertion. Okay, chatting these two to a standstill can wait. First things first. You’ve fallen and you can’t get up unless you get this stupid shit off your foot. You grab the slack between your shoes and the floor and heave, trying to weave your fingers into every gap you can find. Your hands’re gonna be covered in sticky crap by the end of this, but you need to get the hell up. You grit your teeth, clenching your stomach up, and feel… something squeezing through the flesh at the tips of your fingers. At first you think the webbing is pulling your nails off, but it’s not – there’s something ripping its way out of you, bit by bit by bit. The webbing snaps and your foot comes free. You get a good look at your hands, and – it’s, they’re, there are claws, you have claws, big black talons extending from where your nails should be seated. You gape silently. God, you… you hope they go back in, or something. You turn your attention to the fight. You recall vaguely that Laura had claws, too – she said something like that, anyway. But she’s not using them. For now Spider-Man is dancing around an increasingly complex series of kicks and jabs.>[ ] Try to get Laura to stop (with words).>[ ] Try to get Laura to stop (physically).>[ ] Try to stop Spider-Man (with words).>[ ] Try to stop Spider-Man (physically).>[ ] Write in.

>>27678768>20>GLORIOUSYou don’t think. You don’t have time to think. You rush to your feet and throw yourself into the acrobatic brawl. Everything freezes for a moment – both players pause in momentarily surprise, and you capitalize on the brief lapse to grab hold of Laura’s shoulders. Her eyes widen momentarily, a bright green ferocity welling up – perhaps unbidden, perhaps not – in her normally blank stare. More out of reflex than anything else (at least, you think so. It feels like that) she tries to rip herself away, but your strength manages to surprise you, and she stays rooted in place. “Laura, stop. He’s not a bad guy.” She snarls, her throat working out a series of sounds well outside of human range. “We’ve gotta go. You can’t get involved with the cops.” You can feel the blood crashing through her veins. Her heart is pounding, but her breath is long and measured, bulging through the night in warm tatters of vapour. She reeks of adrenaline – much moreso than Spider-Man does. The tension slowly leaves her arms, unwinding out of her, letting her muscles slacken. She doesn’t move, though.You look up at Spider-Man. Even through the mask, his uncertainty is obvious. “Look… I can’t just leave you.” >[ ] “I’m just trying to survive. I’m not a thief.

I was thinking - maybe we could offer to let Spidey visit our hideout and verify our story? As it stands, he has nothing more than our word that we have a good cause to fight for, and you can't really run an effective justice system on trusting known criminals.
>>27679122Excellent roll10+ Lizard points
>>27679160Best not to yet.Later when he becomes a more concrete ally.
>>27679107So like, we're wearing a mask, right?
Still wish we could get the attack form of heat vision.Look at this little guy.
>>27679174We're hoboes, we're not exactly tied to one address. All of our belongings can be carried with us.
>>27679174He doesn't have to be an ally - he just has to not be an enemy, or provide information to the enemy. And he's Spider-Man. He's a good guy. Right?
>>27679185Lol, no.Sunglasses yes, but those may as well be part of our face.>>27679193Still no reason to do it yet, might upset the others if more people know where they are, especially with Laura still in hiding with Kimura, she'll want as few people to know her location as possible.
>>27679191Just wait till the brotherhood and the X-men figure out of our existence. Electrical nuke, Grim reaper's touch, X-23 and some unknown mutant that's picking up powers left and right from random mutants. Hell, we're basically Mister Sinister's wet dream.
>>27679237And now we've given pizza to the girl who "knows stuff" so if she's amicable we can avoid some degree of trouble.
>>27679237Better watch our hands, or Logan will snikt our bub.
>>27679211>Still no reason to do it yetHow about earning trust by offering it?
>>27679261Well, maybe she does, maybe she doesn't. The thing is, she gained the pseudo-precognitive abilities from her future self giving her past self her memories, if that hasn't happened, she's basically just a Necromancer/Healer.
>>27679295Which is also kind of useful. If you aren't too attached to your soul.
>>27679122>15>Great Success“I…” Why is this even happening to you? This is supposed to be… Doctor Octopus or someone. Some goblin guy. This isn’t you. You’re not a great person or a particularly well-crafted person or even a competent person, but you’re not a bad person. “I’m just trying to help. I’m helping people. If the cops get my they’ll just stick me in some mutant camp in Arizona or wherever and the people I’m trying to help will die.” You swallow, and say it: “I’m not a bad person. I’m not…” You motion vaguely to Mr. Negative’s sweeping compound. “I’m not one of these people. I'm not a thief. I don’t have a master plan. I’m just a fucking hobo.” The Spider regards you from behind those huge, bulbous eyes. You know, you’ve never really thought about it till now, but he really doesn’t look anything like a spider. “I…” Did his voice break a bit there? How old is he? “I better not have to see you again, guy.” Thwip. A line of webbing soars over your head, and, just like that, he’s gone. You and Laura stand in the darkness of the street for a moment, breathing heavily, the last heady traces of adrenaline and fear clambering about your shoulders like tiny devils, leaping one-by-one into the invisibility of the air. You met a superhero tonight.>[ ] “What’re you doing here, Laura? I told you to watch the others?”>[ ] “Thanks.”>[ ] “Well, that was Spider-Man.

>>27678259A list of powers for those wondering.(also crusty i might have botched the Armour powers, and need to know if they are good or not)http://pastebin.com/zFvxDsKi
>>27679417Not necessarilyWe can haggle with himWe brought much more to the table than was agreed upon. Creeper can now take credit for outsmarting the motherfucking spiderman by stealing a tablet right under his nose. If we play our cards right, he may forget about the second deal.
>>27679558>We brought more than the tablet.But we didn't, we also lost two of his dudes.
>>27679577We could explain that as>"Fucking Spider-Man showed up, of course I ran for my life!"
>>27679417We'll just have to make sure we do the job without getting caught next time.
So are we saving up for senses again?(We should have gotten a good wiff of spider man/his webs and at least have an idea of what he smells like.)
>>27679608Probably would have needed to specify while he was around.But maybe.I do really want to get that next level of senses.
>>27679577Dude, the reason why he did the entire thing was to gain favour with Fisk. Fisk would be absolutely giddy if he found out one of Lieutnants stole the tablet right under Spiderman's nose. He'd definately get rewarded for something like that. If we play that against him, we MIGHT if we get good diplomacy rolls, get him to forget about the second job if we put emphasis on the fact that after such a flashy stunt, there's bound to be competetive eyes watching who'd love to pin the entire success on somebody else and we don't exactly want on the radar.
>>27679625we will need it to know when that fucker is near by.
>>27679625With our level of physique, I'd say that's a fairly good course of action. That or adhesive touch.
>>27679628We tried to make it one job and failed, plus we lost two of his guys.(also its pretty obvious the tablet is a fake or this super villain is retarded)>>27679625Yeah, plus the stuff should still be on our hands, why don't we ask laura to remember that smell.
>>27679656The thing with adhesive touch, you need level 2 for it to be used for wall crawling/stealth.
>>27679671No we didn't fail. We still have the Tablet and our job was to steal the Tablet, not babysit his men. When everybody else AROUND us failed, we pulled through against all odds. If creeper asks, we can just say that after we got webbed, we sprouted claws and cut ourselves loose before the police arrived. None of that is a lie by the way.
>>27679706>we can just say that after we got webbed, we sprouted claws and cut ourselves loose before the police arrived.Don't mention our new powers, all he knows is that we can go invisble and maybe have good eyes.You do make a good point, but i see it as a futile action knowing his character.
>>27679692We can stealth move with wallcrawling, it's just going to be dreadfully slow if we do it silently.
>[X] “Thanks.”>[X] “Well, that was Spider-Man. Huh.” >[X] Just go home.“Thanks.” You breath it out as a plume of grey-on-black. Laura doesn’t answer. The snow tumbles silently through the dark, falling ever-softly upon the house that Mr. Negative built to hide his expensive sins, over the van, over the men on the roof. General across New York – and likely much of the coast – it falls over the two of you, too. “Spider-Man. Huh.” “He was exceptionally annoying.” Notes Laura, still clenching and unclenching her fists. “Yep, he pretty much was.”You glance at your own hands. Your… your claws are slowly inching themselves away, receding back into the seats of your fingertips. Claws, huh. You have claws. A few days ago you were just the invisible guy, and you weren’t even so great at being him. Now you have all this stuff.The snow falls. You wonder what’s happening to you. A bit of claw-work is all it takes to free the driver. He’s thoroughly pissed off, but he doesn’t seem particularly intent on taking it out on you – he just wants to get out of there, perhaps almost as badly as you do. You hop into the back of the van with Laura and head off. The ride is bumpy. Driver’s probably still working out some anxiety. In the half light, Laura’s eyes gleam like tiny wisps, fires perched on the edge of mystery. She stares at your hands and, haltingly, reaches out to touch the ebony talons protruding from your fingers. “Since when have you had these?” >[ ] “…Honestly? I have no idea. Maybe always.”>[ ] “Since five minutes ago, actually.” >[ ] Write in.Sorry 'bout that little delay. Back now.
>>27679748Its on our hands and feet so some awkward crawling is the best we could do, but it does have other uses for us like hanging from a wall or walking upside down or making sure something doesn't get grabbed out of your hand.
>>27679779>[ ] “…Honestly? I have no idea. Maybe always.”"But they came in handy five minutes ago, so I'm not really complaining."
>>27679740Dude, claws are the most common power as far as powers go and relatively impractical. Also, it's incredibly common for mutants with ANY animal features to gain claws. It's rarer when they don't.
>>27679779>“Since five minutes ago, actually.”
>>27679779"Since five minutes ago? As far as I know, anyway."
>>27679779>>[ ] “…Honestly? I have no idea. Maybe always.”>>[ ] “Since five minutes ago, actually.”“…Honestly? I have no idea. Maybe always, but five minutes ago they just came out"
>>27679798He still doesn't need to know anything about us and our power was to go invisible not act like an animal.
>>27679825Just saying, he does know about your weird eyes and your scaly bits. Back when you worked for him he had to have people brush over that stuff with makeup.>writing
We could explain our theory on her powers to her. We've gotten all of our powers so far from people around us, and now we have two from her.
>>27679825Well, the driver already saw it so creeper will know.
>>27679671The way I see it, we have a few options.1. Convince Creeper to give up on the second job.2. Find some job that can't involve Spiderman. No hits, no thievery.3. Find another mutant to do to do the last job.4. Track down Spiderman and ask for his help.5. Ask Peter if his line of work has ever put him in touch with a hero he could ask a favor from. He'll understand if we explain our situation.What else?
>>27679865True, but i still find it stupid to willingly tell him more about our powers.(the less he knows the better it is for us)>>27679884Oh i thought luara cut him out.
>>27679890>5. Ask Peter if his line of work has ever put him in touch with a hero he could ask a favor from. He'll understand if we explain our situation.>What else?this works on getting on peters good side and fucking over the creeper with out him knowing it was us.
>>27679779>>[X] “Since five minutes ago, actually.”
>>27679779"As far as I know five minutes ago. Seems I'm still going through some changes, but I've never heard of a mutant who keeps mutating, so maybe I've always had them."
>>27679937This works for me.
>[X] “…Honestly? I have no idea. Maybe always.”>[X] “Since five minutes ago, actually.” “I’m… not sure?” You grin a little uselessly. It’s weird – claws are weird. The feeling of her flesh against the keratin isn’t quite like anything you know. “I guess I could’ve had them since forever, but they just…” You straight out your hands and just look at them for a moment. It’s subtle, but your eyes are good – the bone structure has changed marginally, incorporating something, maybe a set of sheathes or fibres for flexing or something. “…They just popped out back there.” She stares. Her fingers brush the gently-curving edges, and you’re suddenly uniquely aware of every tiny movement in your hands, every little quiver or shake carrying with it the potential to bite into her flesh. You suppose she’s not too afraid of drawing blood. “You’ve also developed the ability to emit electricity, and, though you may not have noticed it, your manual dexterity has increased significantly. Your physical strength, too.” She looks up at you. The van hits a bump. You feel a bead of dark red warmth waver across one of your claws, down your finger.“That is not normal.” >[ ] “Uh… do you mean the bad kind of not normal? Is it a problem?” >[ ] “Why not? I’m a mutant. I’ve mutated.” >[ ] “Sure it is. There are plenty of mutants with powers better than mine. Noriko’s like a living electrostorm.” >[ ] Write in.

>>27680031>>[x] “Uh… do you mean the bad kind of not normal? Is it a problem?”
>>27680108>>27680090These two work for me.

>>27680108>"Not much I can do about it though, mutants generally aren't allowed in hospitals."Of course they're allowed. They need to get the kidneys and heart transplants from somewhere.
>>27680094>"What do you mean? Do I have... mutant cancer?"It'd be funny if she said something along the lines of:>"No, it's worse! You have.... AMNESIA!!!"

>>27680214>>27680222true, but that begs the question is laura talking in a hush tone to us about this new information?
>>27680222Alrighty then, that's all I needed.>>27680221That's retarded, qt3.14's don't get jelly of family.The conversation isn't even close to that contect anyways.
>>27680221>Dead sisterI do admit it is a bad time to ask, but we still should be curious, plus we never knew why those fuckers were chasing us.
>>27680245>That's retarded, qt3.14's don't get jelly of family."Hey, baby, I think you're really something special.""Have I told you about my sister?"This is why you don't have a girlfriend.
>>27680268No, we don't talk about sis yet. We save that for later when we share back stories with Laurie.
>>27680285We already told her about sis anon.
>>27680274I was not trying to imply angst, more "fuckin A, something useful finally."
>>27680217Chillax, bro. Shit.The timing is awful on "HEY REMEMBER MY DEAD SISTER."
>>27680268You are totally misreading the context of this situation.There is no baby, this is, "Shit, I think you might have mutant AIDs."

>[X] “Is it bad, doctor?”“Uh… do you mean the bad kind of not normal?” You ask, a little nervously. You’re not sure you want to know if it’s something bad. But you press on anyhow. “Is it a problem?”Laura shakes her head.“I don’t know. I’m a genetic experiment, not a genetic scientist.” Was that a joke? You think it was. You offer up a small, easily-retractable laugh. “It is strange, however. While it’s not… unheard of… for mutants to possess multiple abilities, it is rare. Also, your powers are…”She furrows her brow, clearly searching for the right word.“…Haphazard. There’s little pattern to them. Is there any history of mutation in your family, beyond your sister?

I guess she was anaemic, if that's anything.">[X] “My sister isn't 'history'.">[X] "Sure there's a pattern." (point out a pattern)“My sister isn’t ‘history’.” You respond, sharply. You feel Laura’s hands tense up and slip away slightly. That was kinda unfair, you guess, but… shit, you just don’t like talking about her. You suppose Laura never had to deal with siblings, being all cloned an’ all. Only the tips of her fingers are playing at the points of your claws, now. She’s gonna cut herself again. “Sorry.” You mumble. “No…” She stares warily at you, her words forming like toesteps between shards of broken glass. “It’s… alright.” You swallow again. You can feel her warmth travelling up your claws, edging at your fingers. “Um, well, my dad’s only superpower was sitting in his study all day.” As far as you remember, anyhow. “And my mom… she was anaemic, if that’s anything. She never picked up any cars or anything.” “I see.” She states, quietly.“I guess… I’ve been getting all this stuff over the last few days, right?” She nods in the dark. Yeah, you’re not stupid. You have thought about this, at least a little. “Well, I’ve never been around this many mutants before. At once, I mean. Maybe I’m… reacting? Or something.” “Advanced Adaptation is a documented ability.” Laura notes. “Okay. Well, it, it could be that, y’know?” “It could.” You watch her eyes. She’s not convinced. “You…” She clears her throat awkwardly. Her fingers retract. “When you explained your situation, you didn’t mention your father.” >[ ] “Oh? Yeah, I guess I didn’t.” >[ ] “He died when I was little. I didn’t really know him.” >[ ] “Yeah… actually, I think I have a picture with him in it…” (this will require a roll)>[ ] Write in.

>>27680793>yeah, he died when Ivwas little, hold on I think I might have a picture with him in it.
>>27680793Haha, tiem for flashbacks.
>>27680863Or for an unexpected reveal about our ancestry. Photo = opportunity for someone to identify = hello extra branch on a tree tangentially or temporally linked to the clusterfuck of the Summers Forest.Hell, there might be a visible scarab tattoo on our pop in the picture...or he could be one of Sinister's alt identities.The possibilities are astounding.
>>27680955Well if Sinister isn't involved, he sure as hell would love to be. The very thought of our physiology is enough to make him want to grab us into his basement and brainwash us to be his homosexual lifepartner.
>>27680826>17>bueno“Oh? Yeah, I guess I didn’t.” Shouldn’t come as a surprise, really. “He died when I was little. I didn’t really know him.” Something sparks off in your head. Hey…“Hold up…” You unzip your coat, patting down the jacket beneath. “I think I have a picture with him in it…” You rummage around in your jacket, sifting through the patchwork of pockets and ad-hoc openings until your fingers close around a set of photos. You withdraw them tentatively – these are, quite possibly, the only items of worth you own. Not of worth to anyone else, of course… but to you, they’re a lot. You flip through them until you come to the pair you’re looking for. “Here we go.” Laura leans in, teetering over Lake Michigan and the boundless, stretching sands. There are four figures on the dunes. A small, slight woman in her twenties, the sun arching over her silly floppy hat, stands with her hand knotted into that of a dark-haired man just a little older than her. He’s smiling, or laughing, or something in between. On the left, a girl with his hair, on the right, a much younger boy with hers. Laura points to the boy with the sandy blonde hair. “That’s you?” You nod. “Yeah… there’s another one, but it’s not a great picture. It’s some dinner party or something. I don’t think I was even alive.” You glance down at it. It’s your dad, obviously, laughing enthusiastically at something off-shot. There’s champagne in his hand and he’s more… shaven than you ever remember him being. You don’t even know one of the other middle-aged dudes in the photo, though a little familiarity clings to a few faces - just not the kind you can pin down. Laura stares at it for some length of time – long enough, actually, that you feel you should probably say something. You’re just not sure what.>[ ] Write in.>[ ] Let the ride pass in silence.

>[X] Write in.“…Guess I owe you two favours now.”She starts a little, and glances up, shooting you a questioning stare. “What do you…” She pauses. And smiles, lightly. “Oh. Yes, you do. I will collect.” Her eyes are drawn back to the picture. You glance down at it, scrutinizing it for meaning, but it’s just a boring dinner party photo. It’s just some old guys laughing about something and sipping obnoxiously expensive alcohol.“Something wrong?” You ask. “…No.” She reaches out and places her finger upon the picture. “Who is this man?” “Hmm?” You lean in and squint. She’s pointed out one of the younger fellows at the edge of the photograph, standing there with a decidedly stiffer, more awkward bearing, the champagne barely grazing at his lips. Yeah, you’ve wondered that too. He’s one of the more familiar ones. A family friend or something? “Honestly? No idea. Maybe a…”>[ ] Family friend.>[ ] Relative.>[ ] Co-worker.>[ ] Write in.>pick ONE

“…Work friend? I dunno. I think I may have met him when I was very young, but…” You strain your brain, but nothing writhes to surface. Just a whole lot of chaff – just sandy beaches, and the smell of rosewood, and fire thawing like ice. You sit in silence for a moment. Man, that’s gonna bug you all night. “What…” Laura’s voice is a sifting, awkward tiptoe. Like she’s trying to pry something open without breaking it. “…What was your father’s profession?” You shrug. “Well, I was… really young, you know?” She stares. You guess she doesn’t know. “I guess it was something sciencey. Whatever it was, he was always working on it. Basically all my memories of him are set in that dumb little study room of his.” “I see…”Another moment passes in silence. You feel your claws retracting, reacting to the lessening tension. “I think my father may be dead.” She blurts out, suddenly. “My… template, I mean.” >[ ] “Uh… oh. I see.” >[ ] “Um, why do you think so?” >[ ] “You know who it is?”>[ ] Write in.>Sebastion Shaw? Unus the Untouchable? Morph? Karl Lykos? Sinister? Arcade? Vulcan? Maggot? Shatterstar? Slusk?

>>27681928Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.Nobody in the marvelverse is allowed to ask that.
>[X] “Um, why do you think so?” >[X] “You know who it is?”Well, that was sort of abrupt. Kind of. One dead father to the other, you guess. An awkward bridge but a bridge nonetheless. You scratch the back of your head.“You know who it is?” She nods. “His name is James Howlett.”You know, this brings up a quite a few more questions. But for now: “Um, why do you think he’s dead?”She narrows her eyes, letting out a barely-perceptible sigh. “I have been tracking him. That was my reason for being in New York in the first place. But every lead I follow seems to terminate in failure.” She bites her lip, just for a second. “It’s as though he’s simply vanished.” >[ ] “He?” You’re pretty sure Laura’s a girl. Pretty sure.>[ ] “Why do you want to find him?” >[ ] Steer the conversation toward lighter stuff for the rest of the ride.>[ ] Write in.
>>27682000In case you didn't know,they explained in her origin storyThe Wolverine sample got damaged but Laura's "mom" proposed "Fuck it! We'll just make a girl! It'll be fun, I'll use my own uterus as an incubator!"

>>27682019A dead lead isn't a corpse.Have hope, I'm sure whoever you're cloned from is tough as all hell.
>>27682000Well truth be told, everybody, except her creator thought it was a bad idea, but she went ahead and did it anyway.
>>27682030Oh I know.The real question is where that extra X came from.Just doubling Logans would result in a retarded Laura.Or fuck it, comic science bullshit.
>>27682019>>[ ] “He?” You’re pretty sure Laura’s a girl. Pretty sure.>>[ ] “Why do you want to find him?”

>>27682019>[ ] “He?” You’re pretty sure Laura’s a girl. Pretty sure
>>27682030>>27682075At a guess, I would say that Laura's "mom" is in fact her mother in all ways that matter, including that second X chromosome.
>>27682075marvel really likes and prefers science but me thinketh their grasp of it doth be weak
I'm going to laugh if Logan is hiding out with a female version of us, that is to say, our sister.
>>27682030No Y chromosome? Let's double up on X!
>>27682162Our sister became an X-man and is at the school right now...or on Muir Island in mutant rehab in a wheelchair because the purifiers fucking crippled her before she finished hem off.
>>27682162Logan does hang out with a bunch of teenage girls.
>>27682162..... He better not be fucking our sister
>>27682220Depends. I forgot whether our sister was a redhead or not.
>>27682206Turns out both Laura and Logan were doing the exact same thing without knowing it. Hanging out with the Green siblings.It's in their genes.
>>27682238and later, in their jeans.
>>27682160Kinda. The gist of it is nobody at Marvel knows how Genetics or cloning works and Laura largely takes after her mother. Hair, Eyes, pretty much everything except the claws.
>>27682103>>[X] “Why do you want to find him?”>>[X] Write in: "Could be he's just gone to ground. Would make sense, being a mutant and all."
>>27682019"Vanishing, to our kind at least, happens sometimes. I'm not saying that he's alive, just that...well, if he's half as tough as you I'm not sure I'd jump to that conclusion is all."James clearly means something to her, and I think Laura is worth giving a little hope. Also, wolverine is always getting kidnapped and experimented on or temporarily recruited by some agency, so who knows if it's even false hope we're giving her.
>[X] “He?” You’re pretty sure Laura’s a girl. Pretty sure.>[X] “Why do you want to find him?” You probably shouldn’t. You probably shouldn’t say it, but…“…He?” She blinks, but it doesn’t seem to faze her.“His Y chromosome was damaged, so the facility simply reproduced a second X chromosome to compensate.” “Oh…” Wait a minute. “Wouldn’t that end in total failure? I mean, you can’t just stitch genes together like that.” Her brow rises into a rare vista of surprise. “Yes, normally. But certain measures were taken.” She cocks her head to one side. “How did you know that?” “Oh…” Yeah, JJ. How did you know that? You know you didn’t get that far in school. “I guess… I just picked it up somewhere?” You shrug. You kinda thought it was a general knowledge thing, but, on second thought… you don’t generally know so many people that could tell you exactly what a chromosome even does. In fact, do you know any? A single one? Kevin seems kinda like a good listener, so maybe. “Well, anyway, a dead lead isn’t a corpse.” You smile a little knowingly. Now here's a topic you're a true expert in. “It’s not all too hard to disappear if you really want to.” >[ ] Talk more heavy stuff (write in topic).>[ ] Steer towards lighter conversation.>[ ] Write in.

>>27682335Gonna need to grab some nail polish.
>>27682335Nah.Why'd you ask?
>>27682348Just the impression I got when Laura was playing with them (admittedly I got here ten minutes ago and sped through a bit catching up...). Wanted to know whether we needed to grab a pair of hobo gloves before going to work tomorrow.
>>27682390would probably should get some gloves.. just cuz its winter in universe
>>27682348Are our fingernails now permanently black? I mean we're hoboes so nobody could probably tell the difference, but we've got ebony talons, right?
>>27682103[X] Write In: If he's a mutant, he could be in hiding. Any probably have ways of people not tracking him. But I'll help you find him, if I can.
>>27682272Give her a gentle hand squeeze to show our support. "I know I'm probably not going to be much use tracking him down, but you know you have whatever help I can give." or something hobo-y to that effect. Then change the subject.Also, see if we can get our hands on a Polaroid camera at some point if Laura doesn't think a group photo is a horrible idea.

>[X] Steer towards lighter conversation.“So…” You perk up, trying to sprinkle a little sunshine into the dimly-lit van. “How about those two favours…” You spend most of the ride back talking on lighter matters – little things, just whatever jumps out at you from memory or thought. You supply a lot of it, of course, but Laura has her surprises. You had no idea she’d been to one of the last public Dazzler concerts, for example. The weird goth-chic corset thing might’ve been an indicator otherwise on anyone else, but you hadn’t exactly pinned her down as a party creature. You talk about the states you’d visited (read: passed through, hastily), the stuff you remember from school, the little mistakes you’d both made… you just talk.Your thoughts trail back to the photos - how you all used to bunch up for a picture every year, out on that same spot overlooking the lake. Maybe a group photo wouldn't a bad idea.Eventually, the van grinds to a halt, and the driver barges his way out. You merge into the night and the snow and the gnawing, laced cold. He regards you with a look you don’t exactly recognize – it’s not the mutie look, or the tramp look, or anything like that. It’s something new. “The package?” It’s a question, but he states it as a matter of fact, holding out a black, unmarked bag for you to drop it into. >[ ] Drop it in.>[ ] “Actually, Creeper shouldn’t have this.

>>27682682Hah, I like this.>Ok, please sign here, and here, and then thumbprint in blood.Our little homeless invisible electric lizard elf would be the best delivery person.
>>27682704All we need is a mutie that sparkles and dates terrible people
>>27682745We can be that mutie.
>>27682745That'll give us an excuse to call up Blade.
>>27682704Twipires are OP as fuck.
>[X] Write in.Yeah, no. As much as you’d like to be out of Creeper’s line of sight… no. You’re not handing this thing to some slippery middleman with a prominent gut and “I’m about to get punked by Daredevil” written in bold neon narrative right across his forehead. “I’ll handle the exchange.” “Hey, no.” The guy shakes the bag, as if somehow that would galvanize you. “That weren’t the deal.” “Creeper said nothing about who delivers the package.” You state, quickly and simply. “I’ll handle the exchange. Personally.” He doesn’t look happy. He doesn’t look happy or glad or really anything but angry, but then… then there’s that look again, in the corner of his eye, that something-verging-on-uncertainty. What is that? “…Fine.” He rummages in his pockets for a phone, scowling up at you from under an impressively unkempt pair of eyebrows. “I’ll set up a meet.”Grand. Just grand.-------------------------------------------------------------------->THREAD 13: END>Congratulations! You retrieved the tablet and escaped Spider-Man.>Congratulations! You had an interesting conversation!>Congratulations! You showed a bit of spine there at the end!Next HMQ should be on Monday. Keep updated via shitty twitter: https://twitter.com/CrustyJayI’ll be around for a bit if anyone has questions, comments, etc.
>>27682761twipires meet the hellsing organization
>>27682843Ok, that I would watch.
>>27682834no, x-point or upgrades?not even, a relationship bonus?
>>27682834hey, crusty, weren't you considering locking out certain abilities?
>>27682862There'll be upgrades in the next thread.Trusted takes a while to move up from. Each tier is 'longer' and takes more input. You did move up, just not a whole rung.
>>27682834Are we gonna me our future selves like most X-men?
>>27682834Shouldn't we get a +1 diplomacy for successfully negotiating ourselves from spiderman WITH the stolen property.
>>27682869Yeah. That was before popular theory became "We're like a chinese copy mutant".It's likely that if you move up in Electrostatic Touch, though, Envenomed and Paralytic Touch will be locked (but not Adhesive Touch, as it's a totally different type of ability).
>>27682883You're the best, Crusty <3I wonder what this quest would look like inked and colored.
>>27682730Name someone on Kingpin's Payroll that could even survive meeting Laura. Just one.
>>27682895Diplomacy or Persuasion will mos def be a choice in the next attribute boost vote.
>>27682883Question, do the trusted upgrades require an unbroken chain of successes, or just more successes per tier? Yes, I'm fishing to find out how badly the "Laura, please sit this one out" failure damaged the progress of our friendship.
>>27682927They don't have to be unbroken.>>27682921He can afford to have a great many dudes on his payroll.Also, remember, this ain't 616. Just keep that in mind. For all you know Fisk's a renegade Kree or some shit. A really fat one.
>>27682958>For all you know Fisk's a renegade Kree or some shit. A really fat one.He's actually Scott Summer's father.
>>27682958Fisk confirmed as superskrull. Not good!Well, at least he isn't Mephisto...
>>27683021>implying he's not Mephatso, the Porkiest Hellking
>>27682994That would actually be a bit disappointing. The (Starjammers?) are pretty amusing.
>>27682958Who's the President of the United States in this universe?
>>27683043There gonna be any future self meet ups? and if so, can be via delorean instead of psychic powers?
>>27683276I assume they just cloned Reagan and called it a day.
>>27683294>I assume they just cloned Reagan and called it a day.Nazi Reagan Wows Audience with Stylish New Mustache
>>27683339This is Nixon's style.fucking sentinels
>>27683276That shadowy-faced guy who always seems to be president in the MU. You know the guy.>>27683282I will say that it's unlikely. However, deloreans are more probable than psychic mind time travel.
>>27683367>That shadowy-faced guy who always seems to be president in the MU. You know the guy.I'm honestly not that into comics, so not really.
>>27683043Hmm, not sure if you're still here OP, but I was just wondering whether we were still capable of chameleonic camp after the upgrade. I may be considering having JJ sport some fake tattoos next time we take a job, if someone's look for a guy with a Phoenix on his neck then they aren't looking for us.
>>27683409Comics tend to step around the issue of presidency by having the president's face shadowed out. Like, they'll look a LITTLE like whoever's in power the time... but with major anonface. It's retarded and hilarious.>>27683418You just don't have the control to create specific patterns. When your invisibility was chameleonic you could only mimic the substances around you.
>>27683469>Comics tend to step around the issue of presidency by having the president's face shadowed out. Like, they'll look a LITTLE like whoever's in power the time... but with major anonface.MR. NEGATIVE IS THE PRESIDENT!
>>27683635Alright, that might have been kinda stupid, but meh.
>>27683469So what do our comrades think of us individually, i know that some are trusted, and agreeable but what are their personal thoughts?
>>27683781That we are not a mind reader.
>>27682589>"How about those two favours..."What have we done...
>>27681658How about a nice chai? Twinings makes an acceptable one.
>>27681807I like the fiery feeling down my throat when I sip some hot, pipping tea.
