Peter Parker Quest, Issue #43>MAXIMUM CHRISTMAS, Part Zwei>Rules: http://pastebin.com/w5G3aG3Y>Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/q1AqTT5h>My twitter: https://twitter.com/QuestOpCosgrove>Archives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Peter%20Parker%20Quest>Story Arc database: http://pastebin.com/fR0Z1SNK>The Hierophant What is mankind’s nature?It has been a question that has troubled him since he was young-No, that would be a lie.Mankind’s nature only troubled him because of the differences he noticed between himself and others, even from a young age. Throughout his life, all he could find enjoyment in was the suffering of others- only through harming others could he find joy. And whenever he would indulge himself, he would be punished and looked down upon, as a monster. A freak. He soon learned to hate his inherent nature. And, at a critical junction, where he was about to do something unforgivable, he was found by a priest. The man was cold and unfeeling, but he at least had a sense of purpose. The man stopped him effortlessly and fed him, giving him a lecture to likely try to set him on the right path.“Mankind is different- Unlike animals, we’re forever in pursuit of heaven.”The rest has faded into obscurity, the man’s face and voice are but a faded memory. But he remembered desperately clinging onto that. If he spent his life in the pursuit of heaven, then surely he would be saved. Surely he would become normal. He joined the clergy in an attempt to emulate the man he could barely remember. The closer to the ideal person he was, surely the more likely he would be saved.But, still, his life was without purpose- finding salvation was an unreachable goal. Each and every day was an ordeal. He had sacrificed everything he was for salvation, yet God had not saved him. And, finally, despair set in.>1/2
>>29853881As he prepared himself for the end, something appeared before him. It was not long until he realized that, finally, God had appeared before him. In exchange for devoting himself, he would be saved.And he rejoiced.>Choose interlude>Fool>Devil>Magician
>>29853886>>MagicianWow, PPQ is early! Huuray! Also I thought we did the Devil?

Oh right, we need to get some thermals, if we don't have them all ready, for wearing under our sytlish costume in the cold.

>The MagicianIt’s Christmas time- you should be out and about, bothering people, getting presents.Drinking eggnog.Iiiiiiiit’s booooooooooring.You rock back and forth in your chair. You’ve got super-fire powers.You shouldn’t have to put up with this.Glancing around you, look over at your sister. Sue looks just as bored, as she taps her finger on the table, idly scanning some sort of book. Seems like she’s bored too.Time for Action Plan Johnny.>[ ] Sneak out>[ ] Convince your sister to head out with you (how?)>[ ] Be boring and stay inside, like a tool>write in
>>29854616>>[ ] Sneak outWe're Johnny Storm, it's time for idiocy!
>>29853881Wait, issue 43? Was 42 not archived?
>>29854616>[ ] Convince your sister to head out with you "Sue, I just got a message from Spiderman/Peter on Facebook that he needs help and fast! Can you inviso us so we can sneak out and go help him?"If she goes for it, disguise up, tell her he said to meet him in the shopping district and then spring it on her that you just wanted to spend Christmas with her outside the walls.
>>29854616>[ ] Convince your sister to head out with you (how?)"C'mon sis, we've been cooped up in here for months, it's time to go out for a bit. We can bundle up so it's not easy to recognize us, and you can turn us invisible until we're blocks away from the embassy. Come onnn~"

Cos if you plan to use Magneto in the future I have found a perfect fanart to fit him.
>>29854616>>[ ] Convince your sister to head out with you (how?)Keep saying "Peer pressure!" until she gives in. That's how that works, right?
>>29854986That's probably what Cos had in mind when he described the red suit. And cane.
>>29855450Wrong Quest, anon
>>29855481are you trying to say Erik wouldn't look stunning in that dress?
>>29855568It's a nice dress.
>>29855568Well, I guess he would. The black and silver will really accentuate his hair.
>>29854596>>29854739Ah thanks, I missed that.

>>29856251We did good right?
Well this is up early.Wonder what Cosgrove will have Spidey be out and about for on Christmas eve.
>>29856631we already had that event after leaving Dr. Spyral.
So I guess DOOM is celebrating the winter solstice or something
>>29856881Hes polishing his armor with the wax he got from santa
Your sister will murder you if you try to sneak out. You, therefore, need to make sure she’s with you on this. Had you been in the Baxter building, this certainly would have failed, as it would have during the summer months.Carefully, slowly, you inch you rolling chair over to her. Slowly, as to not make her suspicious. Sneaaaaaakily. You pause as she glances up and she lets out a sigh. “What is it, Johnny?”Clearing your throat, you roll over to the table she’s sitting at and give her your most innocent smile. “So, it’s December Twenty-fifth, sis.”She raises an eyebrow, looking at you like you’re an idiot. “Yes, Johnny. I know.”You grimace. She’s using her ‘professional bored professor voice.’ “Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell, I was just thinking that it’s Christmas. And every Christmas we go out and have fun in the snow. And there’s snow.”The eyebrow lowers as she gives you an annoyed look. “You know we’re not supposed to be outside, Johnny.”You groan. “C’mon, sis. We’ve been cooped up gere for months. It’s time to go out for a bit!” She opens her mouth- probably to shut you down as you hold up a finger and start talking. Fast.“Look- it’s safer than any other time of year. We can bundle up so its not easy to recognize us, and you can turn us invisible until we’re a few blocks away from the Embassy. We’ll only be out for a little while and then we’ll be back! I know we have more freedom here, but even I can see you’re bored to tears. Come onnnnnn~”You sister glances at the window as she chew on her lip slightly- that means she’s considering it. “I’ll listen to whatever you say, even, but It’s Christmas, Sis. I didn’t do this for Halloween, despite how much I love that Holiday- nor did I say anything when it was Thanksgiving, and I saw how much it was eating away at you. “>1/2
>>29857011You sit down and stare at her, seriously. “I’m not doing anything without you, Sue. But I’d like to see my sister happy on Christmas, at least.”She looks away and you sink your head in defeat. Yeah, you’ve lost this one.“Get your heaviest coat, plus your scarf and gloves and hat.”Her voice is thick as she quickly clears her throat and brings a hand up to her face. “Did you hear me, or not?”You’re already up and moving.It doesn’t take long to get out of the embassy- the place has been almost deserted ever since you and Sue started staying here. DOOM’s not here, but he’s been gone pretty consistently since the holidays started up.The two of you are bundled up and almost unrecognizable.Time to enjoy a day out for Christmas! Well, you only have a few bucks between the two of you, but the spirit’s there!>[ ] SNOWBALL FIGHT>[ ] Go do something (what?)>[ ] Write in
>>29856908But as always, Santa had to fight his way through Latverian air defenses and Sorcery. It was probably rough for him after a very Pym Christmas.
>>29857034>>[ ] SNOWBALL FIGHTAs if there was any other choice.
>>29857034>Make a snowman
>>29857034>To Rockefeller! We've got ice to skate and a big ass tree to appreciate!

>>29857034Go ice skating
>>29857034>[ ] SNOWBALL FIGHTThis is where Susan finds out she can make forcefields.
>>29857110This, and a snowball fight.
>>29857034hey sis. You wanna build a snowman?
>>29857133A+ thinking, anon.>>29857034Rockefeller and Snowballs sounds good to me.
>>29854044Give her bleeding eyes and mouth like Tatari/Wallachia from Melty Blood. For that extra carnage.
>>29857129Rock center, would be nice.
>>29857034Build a Snowman... which always turns into a snowball fight, which turns into exhaustion, which then turns into snow angels.everysingletime
>>29857034Rockerfeller is a nice idea, still I feel they will meet Reed there.
>>29857281being snow queen is sufferingcan't even have her Capsicle husbando
we need to run into reedthe world needs the fantasic four
>>29857476reed is a douche. and probably a villain in this universe. The world needs the other three to join the Avengers
>>29857503still want a spectacular team.
>>29857503That path leads to the Ultimate Universe. And the Ultimate Universe is shit, we don't want to be that place.
>>29857503We don't know yet. He's probably going through some stuff; but I doubt he's full on death ray yet.
>>29857503Its quite well established the only way to keep reed from going full destroy world mad is to get the fantastic 4 together.
>>29857549>Death rayYou mean Peace ray
I agree that we need a non evil Reed, but right now we probably have a depressed Reed whose just finished the Sociological Math Calculations to predict Project Wide Awake...and he doesn't know how to help or protect the people he cares about any other way than to stay under Shield's thumb.
>>29857396Now that he's out and about on his own, with only his wits, what he'll make of the future?Also, I wouldn't worry to much about the snow queen, he needs time to get over her corruption and find a more healthy outlet for her emotions.
>>29857592Reed doesn't steal designs from Tesla, like Pym or Edison did.
>>29857396>>29857476The world needs for Peter to found the Future Foundation along with genius biologist Susan Storm, European Monarch and doctor of Physics Victor vonDuum, Hotshot racecar driver and test pilot Johnathan Storm, and cybernetics pioneer Doctor Spyral. THAT is what the world needs.Are we not talking about the 'elephant in he room'? The doctored video intended to implicate Norman Osborn in our parents' murder? We only know of two players in that game. And if the video was altered to make Osborn look guilty, then logically the only person to make that alteration would be Nick Fury. The earlier videos and notes were all designed to make us run to him with any information we got. Like most sophomores (translation: 'Educated Idiots' in its original greek) Fury never stopped to consider that we may be smarter than him. So what do we do about it?
>>29857831We could phone him a call him out on his bullshitbut that most likely wouldnt work
>>29857831What's with the Von Duum thing? I'm pretty sure it's Von Doom.
>>29857868That...That sounds like the worst thing we could possibly do if he is actually behind this.
>>29857925>but that most likely wouldnt workI never said it was a good idea, i said it WAS an idea
>>29857925Nah, the worst possible thing would be kidnapping him to interrogate him. A phone call is just a bad idea.
>>29857892Best Reed. Though he could be better, by being honest with Sue, Johnny, & Ben about it.
>>29857868>calling a spymaster and letting him know we know something about themwhy?
>>29857868I was thinking the opposite. We bait Norman. Go to a Goodwill store. they usually have older electronics. While wearing gloves, we buy some floppy disks. Without getting our fingerprints on it, we copy the doctored video to the disk. We label it 'From Richard Parker'. We use a completely generic all-black outfit to sneak into Osborn's office while he's in there. We hand him the disk and say that unless he wants us to hand it over to 'the Parker guy's kid', he'll pay up. Depending on how he reacts, we'll know whether or not the video is legit, and whether or not we can trust him. If he ponies up the cash right away and acts caught, we throw him through a window. If he's shocked by it, then we reveal the ploy, and that we know it was Fury who planted the fake video, and that we're willing to work with osborn in bringing Fury to justice for our parents' murders.
>>29857965I meant within the realm of things I'd believe people might vote for, but yes objectively kidnapping him would be worse I suppose.
>>29858006...That's possibly a worse idea than kidnapping Fury.
>>29858006You know we've decide the harddrive but haven't finished fixing all the available files yet, we have more evidence to sort through
>>29858042This. You don't threaten or try to outlie Norman. Especially right to his face.
>>29858006Thw best thing we can do is take our time and decode and crack the videos on our harddisk. Find out what the originals were first.
>I have lost everything that I have just wrote up. I am retyping desperately.
>>29858102You gotta download word or something man.
>>29858102You really need to be tying inside of something that has auto-save man. Hell, just download open-office or something.
>>29858084And we need to put all this programming we've been learning into practical use. Police chatter scanner for notable activity, add in a ..web crawler for depth and predictive analysis. That is just a couple quick things before we get into the more fantastic applications.
>>29858120>>29858156Notepad++ has an auto-save on it, if doesn't want to download something large.
>>29858307don't you need to download a plug-in for it?
>>29858332It's small. And you can do it through the program also.
Well, naturally, there’s only two things to be done. The first- Ice Skating! Then snowball fights! The snowmen! Then snow-angels!Wait- you might’ve messed up that order some.REGARDLESSYou’re just going to enjoy a good Christmas day with your sister. Ice-Skating, is the first on the menu- after you’ve gone and made a fool of yourself and let Sue out show you in every way, you sit and groan, rubbing your sore lower back. Well, at least you didn’t fall on your face.Anyway, you’re waiting on Sue, who’s grabbing you both hot chocolates with your last couple of bucks.WITH Marshmallows. ALWAYS with marshmallows.Regardless- your babe-sensor is going off. Twice. There’s a red-haired girl talking with a Goth girl- brown hair with her bangs dyed white. They seems to be looking around the area and talking.>[ ] Laaaaaaaaaaaaaadies.>[ ] You’re supposed to be good, wait on Sue.>[ ] You know you can’t resist temptation. Retreat.>write in

You quickly brush yourself off and head over to the two very attractive ladies giving your smoothest smile. As You approach, you wave. “How are you two ladies doing on this fine day?”The goth glares at you, turning away. “Better, before you showed up.”The redhaired girl smiles at you as she gives a warning glance at her friend. “I’m sorry about that, Um- I didn’t catch your name?”“It’s uh- Johnny.”You watch the girl carefully- she’s being friendly, but that kind of friendly of a girl who doesn’t really want to deal with you, but is playing you for something. Twenty times later- you learn to see the signs. Regardless, you give a nice, polite smile and extend your hand. “Well, sorry for bothering you, I think I see my sister coming. Miss..?”Her smile is perfectly friendly as she extends her hand towards you. “It’s Jean.”She glances over at her friend and nudges her forward. “Don’t be impolite, Rogue.”The girl glares at the girl as she extend her hand after taking her mittens off- she shakes your hand as you feel your gooseflesh ruse as her finger accidentally brushes your wrist. The girl quickly pulls her hand back and stuffs back on her mitten as the two girls exchange looks.Yeah- that uneasy feeling in your stomach’s acting up again.>[ ] Politely excuse yourself>[ ] Leave>[ ] Run>write in

>>29859006"Is something the matter?"
>>29859103Probably not.She might just go FLAME ON.

>>29859128She drained the energy from a normal guy she kissed i believe.
>>29859121...which requires heat-proof clothing if you don't want to have your clothes...I like where this is going.
>>29859128She's drained the energy from Captain America before.
>>29859128No, she drains the power of anyone she touches, even normal people.
>>29859128Her powers work on all organic life forms.
>>29859181Prolonged draining also runs the risk of memory transference, and can result in comas or death for the victim. On at least one occasion she has permanently gained the powers of a metahuman she drained.
>>29859006Don't leave, talk more and salvage this
>>29859251I don't think it was quite permanent, but there are a few that lasted several years
>>29859049do this one
>>29859295She put Miss Marvel into a coma for a decade and still has the power to fly, punch through tanks, and ignore most forms of damage. At least usually. Last I checked her powers were in flux and she'd randomly exhibit powers from someone she had drained some time in the past, so she has a randomized suite of abilities.
>>29859334Sounds like you're getting ready for the Super Bowel.

>>29859600Well, Rogue knows exactly our deal, who we are and powers maybe...and Jean might have gotten a mental picture because we might be in communique with rogue telepathically. Or Johnny is just thinking about himself pretty loud.Though if they're Evo, in a year we might have a shot at Magma.
>>29859660Jean is one of the most powerful telepaths in the world. It's assured that she's reading our mind.
>>29859701Not necessarily. Her power varies pretty wildly depending on the universe she's in, how much training she's gotten, and of course the Phoenix.
>>29859701+OhGodshejustlitonfirewithmypowers++Should I say she's 'super hot'?+
>>29859753Still, we are Johnny Storm, we probably thinking super loud. Jean can grab surface, and she probably is right now after what happened to Rogue.
“Sooooo, Um are you waiting on some friends or are you two here alone?”Please don’t be lesbians again. Please don’t be lesbians again.Jean tucks her hair behind her ear as she smiles, shaking her head. “Well, we were supposed to meet up with some of our friends, but I think we’re just wasting out time now.”She sighs as he breath condenses in the cold air. “So, you said you were waiting on your sisters?”Your stomach tightens again. “Uh, yeah. She should be coming back. Any time now. So, what are you two up to?”The goth, Rogue, scowls and looks away, but you notice that she’s working very carefully to control her breathing. “Um- if your friend okay?”Jean smiles at you as you notice a few people shifting in the crowds. You see your sister in the distance as she gives you an unhappy look.“She’ll be fine. So, we’re from upstate and visiting for the holiday, so do you think you’d be willing to tell us about the city? I hear there was some sort of crazy person in a goblin costume?”Sue’s coming closer, her cheer gone, as you give an apologetic smile. “Well, I should really get going, so It was nice meeting you-”Jean grabs your sleeve and looks a bit worried. “Is something the matter, Johnny? I hope I didn‘t offend you by asking.”Yeah, you’re really getting a bad feeling in your gut.>[ ]Run. Grab Sue and RUN>[ ] Politely excuse yourself.

I talked her into a little outing today to cheer her up. She excused herself for hot chocolate and I thought I'd make some new acquaintances with you while I waited for her. But now she looks pissed and It's probably because.. well, I have a bit of a history and reputation, and from her perspective, this probably looks like I'm using my attempt to cheer her up today as an excuse to flirt, which I'm not entirely doing deliberately, but now she's going to chew me out and it would probably be best if you weren't here for that. I'm sorry to have bothered you."The old 'be honest and act selfless' trick. Always good for brownie points with a girl.
>>29860103That is a totally Johnny plan,
>>29860103Or her thinking your some long-winded blowhard.A respectable approach, but explaining completely your intentions doesn't always work for winning someone over.
>>29860103Thinking directly about the scenario will probably be enough to get Johnny's thoughts. It's a decent sentiment, though. Damn telepaths.
Looking forward to Johnny and Sue freaking out when Jean tries to speak to them telepathically.
>>29860171Jean wasn't able to sense if we were offended or not.Which means she doesn't have full control of her powers.
>>29860144Good thing we don't actually want to win her over now then, we want away and saying this should make it very hard to stall us.>>29860103So, I'm for it.
>>29860103Seems a little too eloquent for Johnny, but then again, it may make Sue less angry to see that we're even capable of being that honest.Go for it.
>>29860144We're not trying to win her over. We're putting the ball in her court.If she's interested in a caring honest guy who cares about his sister, she'll stick around to help get us out of trouble.If she thinks we're cute and kinda nice she'll give us her number.If she thinks we're a blow hard, she'll leave with her friend.But it's all on her now. We've shown her some of who we are, now we get to see some of who she is.

The fact that he was such a bland, generic guy must have been like a security blanket for her. A point of normality she could cling to when the telepathy and such got too strange.
You give a tight smile. “Sorry, it’s just it’s Christmas and my sister looks upset so I figure I’d take her home. Sorry to bother you.” The girl’s smile tightens some as you pause as you see, for a moment of a second, the goth chick’s breath hitch and a flash of fire appears before she quickly gets her breathing under control.Jean glances over at her friend as you take a moment to step back and wave. “Well, I’m sorry for having to leave so fast, but I’ve got to get going. I hope your friend feels better.”You say the words without freaking out and then turn and move towards your sister at a fast pace- the smile on your face fading into a worried look. As you meet her, you nod forward and keep walking- refusing to look behind you. “Keep moving, sis.”Something about you tone and face drains the anger as she matches pace. “What’s the matter Johnny?”You briefly, as you keep moving, tell her of the situation you encountered- especially the scene at the end. Your stomach’s also still bothering you as you glance around as you keep moving. Sue looks rather concerned- especially with how the Hobgoblin was brought up by the girl.You think about the next course of action.>[ ] Keep moving, make sure you lose any possible pursuers>[ ] Warn Peter>write in

The two of you keep moving- ditching the hot Cocoa to try to get back to the embassy- slipping into an alley, Sue quickly turns the two of you invisible as you hear a loud noise nearby-*Bamf*Down the Alley- you see a bunch of smoke and a figure in a bunch of identity concealing clothes, along with the two girls from earlier, who are looking around Alertly. The two other than Jean seem not to see anything when you see Jean look over in your direction, right at you.You grab Sue’s hand more tightly and start running.Ohshitshitshitshitshitshit!Sue, even though you can’t see her, sounds panicked. “Jesus, Johnny, what the hell did you do?!”>Plan of action?

>>29861591Seconding.Use our lust to cover our tracks!
>>29861544This. If we get inside the Embassy they can't do shit without Doom coming down on their asses.
>>29861584Seriously, get on the subway, they can't really confront us or grab us if we are in public, and even then if they were going to black bag us they risk exposing themselves
>>29861463> otherCall Peter, need help Sorry Hank
>>29861643What are you, retarded? Kurt could just port directly in front of us if he really wanted.And if we go to the embassy, they'll not only know EXACTLY where we are, but Kurt can get in anyway. Think things through.

>>29861584This.>>29861686Logan ran. Besides, Johnny doesn't know about mutants.MetaGamingYou're doing it a lot. And Cosgrove punishes us if we use metagaming to make decisions.
>>29861463don't call peter, just run, they are right here, we don't have time for peter to get here.>Sh! Superpowered hitsquad! duck and weave!
>>29861686No, they might just think he is misguided and scared of his powers. Most mutants probably do not start understanding what is happening to them. To be honest, I do think that they might think that Spiderman is a mutant, and want to talk to him.
>>29861584Get TO DA SUBWAY
>>29861726I'm aware, but why would he get all pissy scared, and not like "woah lady what the heck was that"
>>29861744Yeah, and I wish we hadn't automatically told someone (Spyral) that our web was tech based. I like the ambiguity.
>>29861680Metagame knowledge. Johnny doesn't know any of those things.PErsonally, I think the best bet is to split up. Sue heads back to the embassy the long way. We head down into the subway system. Let's see them follow a moving train we'll jump off halfway between stops and use an emergency exit to get to the surface.
>>29861726Even if he doesn't know about mutants, it's not metagaming for him to you know... not run away out of nowhere
>>29861754Because we felt perceptibly drained after touching her, and then we saw a little fire sput from her.And now the teleporting one-man Blue Man Group.
>>29861686Rogue ran.Logan ran.Kurt ran.Jubilee ran.
>>29861772Me too, but what can you do. Still I am up for confronting them or calling Peter.
>>29861772She doesn't seem the type to spread it though.>>29861782It's specifically said in the update Sue went invisible and Jean still pointed us out. That is a little off. Not meta.
>>29861807man, they really gotta work on their introductions.
>>29861800Ben is a stone man, Reed elongates, DOOM wears a metal armor and has a time machine, Sue gets people invisible, Johnny throws fire.Now he sees some teleporter and thinks it's uncanny?
Going into the subway would be a good idea IF we knew they are afraid to use their powers in public. Since we don't, do we really want to go into a crowded tube with a bunch of flammable civilians in case a fight breaks out?
>>29861584This is a good plan. We might be able to get lost in the crowd going out and about for Christmas lunch.
>>29861820because these are strangers that are pursuing him when he tried to leave.
>>29861834Well considering they did not just grab us in the center and they know we have flame powers, its a solid assumption to make
>>29861855People were asking to run even before they started to give chase.
>>29861834We saw Kurt teleport into a dark alleyway. If he wanted people to know about their powers, he would have ported right in front of us. We can extrapolate that they're not comfy with using their powers in public.
>>29861834They teleported into an alley and not right in front of us.
>so- go for the subway or go for the embassy?1- subway2- embassysame rules as always- five minutes
>>29861895They were also looking for us since we're invisible. No sense in making a scene until they have their target.
>>29861902Just curious, why the Subway?
>>29861971because people suggested heading there to try to lose them.
>>29861971It's always crowded in New York. Easy to get lost in the crowd and lose pursuers.
>>29861971Tight packed space. Only two directions they can come from. Solid concrete. If we have to get fire-ish with them, we can guarantee we hit them and minimize collateral damage. Also the possibility of a fast escape (train), and the threat of witnesses (passengers) if they want to try to bring us down. If they're part of a covert-ops group, jumping someone on the subway with superpowers is a fast way to end up on Youtube.
>>29861971So we can do what every shitty action flick taking place in NY does, has a fight scene that goes on for several civilian packed car lengths. I guarantee that this is what Johnny is thinking about if he decides to go to the subway. That and "Oh man, I can't WAIT to tell spidey about this!"
>>29862076Either way, it's a win.
>roll me 1d100+-10, higher is better
>>29862011Yeah, but it puts the guy who can fly, facing off against three people who cannot fly, in an enclosed space where he cannot fly. Or fight without chargrilling innocent pedestrians. Or do anything, really.I don't exactly want to go to the embassy straight off, but I voted for it to keep us the hell out of the subway.

>>29862424To be fair, I'm pretty sure the only reason Peter is a superhero in the first place is because he got guilt tripped, bullshitted, and forced into it constantly until he felt like he was obligated to do it for whatever reason.
You’ve got to run. Run and get to safety-if they won’t show their powers in front of people, then you need to get somewhere with a lot of people. And even if they do come for you, it’ll be a cool fight that will be on you rube, which will lead Peter on the path of rescuing you.Looking around, you spot a subway entrance a ways down the road- you whisper your plan to Sue as he hand clenches tightly.As the two of you near the entrance, you think you’ve got the all clear when, at the entrance you hear a noise and see blue smoke- as the three of them are standing there.The Redhead looks around as the goth takes off a glove and touches the redhead’s face before her head snaps towards you immediately.You hear her voice in your head- faintly as she seems to be talking out loud- without moving her mouth.-From what little I got from this guy earlier, he’s got the same way of thinking I did- find areas where people were at and escape in the crowds.-Seems I was right.-You curse audibly as Sue yanks onto your hand, as you mutedly hear her yelling at you to run.>Choose Interlude>Fool>Devil

>>29862601Johnny is addicted to flirting. It's impossible for him not to.Besides, now we can get in on the mutant plotline! The letter was a dead-end anyhow. Other than revealing to us that Xavier lied in his interview and that he and Fury know each other.
>>29862601I'm more curious as to why they were in the City in force like this. We're they looking for Johnny & Sue specifically or is there something else afoot?
>>29862601>>29862646Anon's right, it was too in character not to. I am liking we have X-men Evolution X-men though.>>29862666There is that. Perhaps they knew Erik was here recently.
>>29862601Hey, we could have totally handled that way worse what if we rolled three ones, what if the first words out of our mouth were something like, "Hey baby, You wanna see a REAL firecrotch??".
>>29862689Please, Johnny has more tact than that. Hard won tact, but still.More like Ultimate route and picturing her naked.
Fucking telepaths man. Never not scary.
>>29862666Nah, they are looking for Peter, because Spiderman is the first hero, remember.
>>29862742Luckily Johnny frequents /b/. Jean doesn't know what the internet is outside of social media.
>>29862646>Xavier and Fury know each other.>Fury allows the X-men to bring in mutants.>Jean finds out who we are from all this.>Xavier is free to tell Fury whatever he wants to.Telepaths man.
>>29862748He's also been pretty above-radar. If you remember in the first season of X-Men Evolution, doing anything overly visual was bad juju.
>>29862646>>29862686>>29862689Oh, I know it's in character and he couldn't help himself, it's not like I hate you guys either though Cosgrove managed to obtain the Dice god's favor by some horrible forbidden ritual
>counting, then writing
>>29862748The question is why. Curiosity? Want to confirm if he is a mutant or not? Tapped by Fury to bring us in because Nick doesn't know who we are, yet? Botched Xavier recruiting technique #7? Seriously, the institute needs a pamphlet.
>>29862830Would be amusing if they where seriously just in town on vacation.
>>29862830>Botched Xavier recruiting technique #7?Safest bet.
>>29862830I would like to think that it is simple curiosity,and trying to check if he is a mutant (and if so, recruit him) because if Fury really wanted to capture us, he would have better alternatives than the X-men. Also I hope if Pete ask to join the X-men, they do not reject them like they did in the cartoon, god I hated that.
>>29862862...yeah, yeah it would be.
>>29862830Rogue might not have been the best to do it in this case.Or, shadowruns, Xavier and his institute are the bad guys here.
>>29862897They're here because of Magneto and this meeting was a complete accident, wasn't it?
>>29862879Has Rouge ever touched Peter before, does she get his powers like spider sense or something or she can't control it and gain man-spider form?
What if Rogue was all out and about bad touching people in the city and one of them was more or less The Thing (John Carpenter)?Seriously going around touching people looking for muties isn't too good of an idea.
>>29862913How did Magneto find out Peter Parker is Spider-Man anyway?
>>29862876I REALLY don't want Peter to join the X-men. For one, it would hugely distract from the story, and for another, it wouldn't make sense since he's not a fucking mutant.
>>29862945Thats the real question isnt it?
>>29862946I have a feeling Peter and the Storms will refuse. Being friends and allies, sure, but not joining up.
>>29862945"Huh, that 'Spider Man' guy swinging overhead has some very unique pieces of metal strapped to his wrist. Hey, that kid over there walking out of the alley way has the same pieces of metal in his back pocket!"
>>29862945Doctor Doom told him, obviously.>>29862961Oh boy here we go.
>>29862961GOD FUCKING DAMMIT HARRY
>>29862945He might have only known him as Richard Parker's kid who was messing around with a hard drive.>>29862961...I'm scared.
>>29862961Oh god, we're not doing the Goblin Cult already are we? Fuck.>>29862956Magneto is a Jew and a Mutant. DOOM harbors Mutants. It was probably a good place for Mags to go after WWII and the Cuban situation, provided that happened.He would know about us by way of DOOM. Or since the logo on his folder was a wheel, maybe he's still buddies with Xavier and Xavier picked DOOMs mind or something or other.
>>29862961Dammit, this is why I wanted the Fool!
>>29862897Ooooooooooh, those make the most sense, doubly so if actually plural.
>>29863031Please, Doom would've warded his mind against telepathy a looooooong time ago.
>>29862985>HARRYYou HOPE it's Harry.
>>29862985"Deal with it nerd."
>>29863059Probably the very reason he wears the metal mask.Hopefully Erik doesn't make his own telepathy-blocking helmet or steal one from someo- OH.... wait.
>>29863066I'm willing to be it's Urich
>>29862986>He might have only known him as Richard Parker's kid who was messing around with a hard drive.On an interesting side note: KEEP MAGNETO AWAY FROM THE HARD DRIVE. One wrong thought from him and we lose everything.

Moved by Joseph's strength and kindness, Speedwagon sought to help Joseph, and the two would see Joseph's adopted brother, Dio Brando, arrested for attempted Murder.Then Dio became a vampire because FUCK YOU.

>THE DEVILThe voice is smooth, like velvet, but tinged with Satan’s own malice and guile.“Is it done, yet? Phineas?”His name was Phineas Mason. He was a technician who worked for the mob. That’s an understatement- he’s a savant with technology, sciences, and engineering. He was on the outs, what with the new conflicts brewing in the background. The master planner was moving in on the Kingpin’s turf.There’s also those symbols they punks have been spray-painting recently in the past week or two. Just juvenile punks who with nothing left to loose. They spray the symbols.Of a green and purple goblin. Out of the way and nothing more than a punk movement in the wake of the hobgoblin. Nothing to worry about.But Phineas knows better. He might not know the devil’s identity, but he exists. He’s owned him for months now. With a man with nothing left to lose, a job that promises protection in agreement for building equipment was nothing to scoff at.“…Yes. It’s done, Sir.”The voice chuckles from behind him. “Good. Good. And Oscorp’s security?”“…It will be down, as planned. I have directions to the department where you want to be. Just get me into the systems and I’ll get you whatever you want to know.”“Good. You know, Phineas, I’m rather fond of our… working relationship. Unlike my predecessor, I realize that having a support system can be very useful. It keeps the pests out of our hair and us well informed. So, if I find that you have betrayed me, I will be very… cross.”He swallows reflexively. The person funding him, whoever it is, has money to get things done. Has the money to get rid of him. He nods his head as tears pool in his eyes.“…I-I understand.”A hand claps him on the shoulder.“I knew you would.”The door behind him closes, finally leaving him alone. And Phineas Mason, the Tinkerer, allows himself to cry.
>>29863512LET THE SPECULATION BEGIN!
>>29863512It's Mary Jane.
>>29863553It's MJ of course.
>>29863512...Squad broken.I need a minute.Peter has no clue what he is in for. It is going to be a glorious struggle.
>>29863553Well obviously it's Peter sleepwalking.
>>29863553Yea, totally MJ
I'm pretty sure it's Reed Richards.
>>29863512Hobgoblin 2 electric boogaloo
I'm out of Shadowruns.
>>29863512It might be Reed. Could still be Henry though
>>29863600>>29863634>>29863637Where are you getting that from?
>>29862946Peter/Alternate Peters have been on the X-Men before. They dont really care he's not a true mutant usually
>>29863553Betting on Phil, Harry, or Roderick Kingsley, quite possibly Arnold Donovan
It's fucking Tombstone, ya jerks.
>>29863721I still want to see into the mind of the Felicia stalker
>>29863693Not that guy, but why would you want Peter to be an X-man? We have our own friends and allies, and our own battles that are completely unrelated to the mutants.
>>29863721Pretty sure Phil's in the Raft. Or being vivisected to find out how his voice works.
>>29863693But Peter doesn't really have much in common with the X-Men. Hell, his powers are magic.
>>29863762...Or on the Thunderbolts... Either way, he's probably the "predecessor" Green Goblin is talking about.
>>29863752peter just kinda does whatever he wants. Usually he's with the Avengers, but then sometimes they forget he's with them and he works with the X men for a while. Or just bros out with individual heroes
>>29863752To be fair we'd have a lot of nice support with them.
Rolled 69>>29863781I thought his powers came from a spider mutating his DNA. Wouldn't that mean he is a mutant, even if he wasn't born one?
>>29863816Mutate. He was mutated due to exposure to something not born as one.
>>29863816No, DOOM confirmed that our powers are drawn from magic.
>>29863816No X-gene, not a mutant in Marvel terms.Also it's magic Spider Totem shit.
>>29863816The marvel universe is pretty fucked up in that regard. Basically it comes down to how the Celestials decided to mess with you. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutate_%28comics%29
>>29863816He's a "Mutate." In the Marvel Universe a "Mutant" refers exclusively to people with the X-Gene.>>29863847He said we had a slight magic aura.
>>29863841Our power is half magical half science
>It was science and magic.But it wasn't the X-gene.
>>29863686Richards, when deprived of a regular sex life with Sue, often goes Full Richards and does horribly evil things. Convert an entire world's population to Zombies, manufacture cosmic cubes for fun and world domination, experiment with black hole bombs, that kind of thing. It's entirely in keeping with his personality that if SHIELD and the government couldn't lead him to Sue, then he'd turn to the less savory side of the law to track down his favorite piece of tail.
>>29863686We're allied with DOOM.Richards is responsible for 92.738% of all evil that befalls us, our loved ones, neighbours, pets, favoured sports teams, nemeses, or really anyone even tangentially connected to us.It has been proven. Through glorious Latverian science.
It isn't Reed Richards.I wouldn't use the image I did if it were.
>>29863878Well, if Xavier's dream is human and mutant cooperation and coexistence, why doesn't he let humans on the X-men, look at Wade, they have denied him membership for years just because he is human. That is discrimination!
>>29863795THEORY: It's Harry. He used his high allowance Norman most likely gives him to keep him off his back to stage a breakin at Oscorp to make a super villain to fight the Spider-Man and huminiate his dads business because he never pays him any attention.Things got out of hand though and Phils possessive nature got the best of him. Luckily Spider-Man took care of the problem and Harry, monitoring Phils out of control spiral was following him and reclaimed his dads gear.After losing his best friend, his anger got the best of him and Harry continued his downward spiral. After seeing his father lavish praise on Peter again during Thanksgiving Harry decided t stop looking for Hobgoblin replacements and took up the mantel himsellf, vowing to make his father pay for his transgressions. Parker? He's still unsure how to handle Parker or that Gwen Stacey...
>>29863912>I wouldn't use the image I did if it were.What Image would you use?
>>29863937no its because they find him annoying
>>29863912Of corse it's not Reed; he's having other people build his gear.Also is the quest over for tonight?
>>29863512Fuck you too, Kingsley.Both of you.
>>29863882>>29863908Richards definitely wouldn't have someone else building his tech for him.And I don't think he'd wear a mask either. He'd just be evil because he'd be next to unstoppable.
>>29863958I know that, you know that, and the stack of 3745 pancakes knows that while hosting an impression of Domino's profile. Deadpool will of course play the race card, flagrantly waving bit in the face if truth.
>currently writing up the next bit
>>29863941Nah; Harry's too obvious.
Its totally Norman making a false trail so noone will suspect him.
>>29864139But what reason does Norman have to BE a goblin?
Rolled 59>>29864096>Nah MJ's obvious,
>>29864171He was inspired by Urich.
>>29864171Taking a stock hit after the hobgoblin fiasco and Tony coming out as Iron Man, his board of directors have removed him from his seat of power? Played by William D.
>>29864171He's batshit insane.
>>29864020Nah, Deadpool doesn't play the race card. He just considers himself an X-Men, even when brought up that he's not, or contradicted by silly things like "facts"
>>29864171Same reason he does anything.Power.No idea how this gets him more power, but I'm sure there's a half-baked reason somewhere in the crazybrain.
>>29864198I don't think anyone was expecting multiple personalities or possessed by a neurotic ghost or whatever she has.
>>29864258They know he only wants to be one because he want's to bang all the hot X-babes.
>>29864229Only after taking the serum.>>29864222Him wanting to best Tony is a possibility I suppose.
"Alright, we've taken a bit of a hit in recent days what with scaled down foreign intervention, Tony Stark, and some embarrassing losses to industrial sabotage. And that's why I've decided to take Oscorp Industries into a bold new direction! Controlling all the petty crime in New York City! Now, I know it won't be the billions in easy government revenue we're all used to. But on the bright side, we won't have to pay taxes on it! Because we'll already be criminals anyway! Well, bigger criminals, right Larry? Hah! That guy gets it..."
>>29864222Actually, the Iron Man proves that his powered armor research is viable. Everyone is goign to want to try to create their own. Technically, he did it first but couldn't sneak the budget for serious R&D and production past the board of directors. Now that Tony's tech is in the public eye, he can shame the board with "You should have let me push mine. Then Stark would be playing second fiddle to us." And while Stark's may be nominally superior to the first generation Goblin tech, Stark's uses a dangerous and expensive power system. The goblin tech is cheap and easily mass-produced. No complicated AI, no arc reactor, no particle beam cannons. Just a flight-capable suit of armor that makes the wearer immune to small arms fire. If anything, the Hobgoblin fiasco was some of the best marketing Oscorp could have had.
>>29864280Several people suggested multiple personality very early on.I feel kind of bad that Cosgrove has to spell so many things out for us though,
>>29864333Multiple personality disorder is a total copout though. People dismissed it because it was too convenient an explanation.
>>29864373Its not true if it makes sense-/tg/
>>29864373Except this seems to be the genuine kind, complete with childhood trauma as a cause.
>>29864373How is that a copout? It would certainly cut down on 'muh shadowruns' and pointing fingers at people not even mentioned IC.
>>29864373>too convenient an explanationIn fairness, this is based on a comic book universe, and convenient explanations are the oil on the gears of the machine.
>>29864419>>29864429People were wary of it because it's a lazy way to vindicate a character's actions and avoid responsibility.
>>29864429The question is what happens when it gets resolved and she wants to kill everyone she sees?

>>29864618>>29864640She was born and raised for situations much bigger than this. She's ready. That said, I am fine with keeping her back this time because that's potentially giving away too many of our cards. The fewer they know about, the better off we are.
>>29864618She held her own against super mutants in a post apocalypse NYC. Pretty sure she can handle a street kurfuffle.Also important note: Pete would probably take backup if Sue and Johnny are calling for help since they have powers.
The only problem with Gwen is no webshooters, she can't move anywhere near as fast as we can.
>>29864530>>[ ] Head out immediately, friends in danger>>[ ] Call DOOMWe have his number right? If he's around I'm sure he'll lend a hand

>>29864575Seconding this. Aside from Stella (who we are NOT bringing into potential danger), Felicia (who is otherwise occupied), Johnny and Sue (who are the ones in trouble), Gwen is our only backup. Let her know to suit up and meet us if she can.
>>29864656This is more notifying him jonny got black bagged by mutants which is fucking IMPORTANT, not saying OH GOD VICTOR PLS HELP. We have Gwen to assist us
>>29864530>[ ] Head out immediately, friends in dangerI'm okay with calling Gwen too, but I'm sure she's going to love getting the call on Christmas.>>29864683>The only problem with Gwen is no webshooters, she can't move anywhere near as fast as we can.pretty sure she got the classic model, or was that just a plan?

>>29864918Why would a super spy organization want to create a sense of anger and vengeance in the super-smart son of one of their agents and then give said son a phone number basically saying "If you want revenge, come work for us"?Recruitment, maybe?
>>29864530>Head out immediately>Ask Stella to call DOOM.Friends in danger. Excuses can be made to friends later, but having Stella try to secure some back-up wouldn't hurt.
>>29865063Well, when you put it that way. Actually, with all this suspicion layered on the hard drive now and and the junior Osborn currently against us, we don't actually have any hard reasoning to hold against Norman, do we?
>So, asking Stella to cover for you, along with Calling Gwen>Call Felicia- there's been opinions on this both ways, so let's put it to a vote1- yes2- nofive minutes
>>29865063What if he's using the Waller Protocol? In Batman Beyond it was revealed that the head of Cadmus (semi-evil shadow organization) collected DNA from Batman and tweaked it, then altered one of their employees using said DNA so that any child he fathered would be a clone of Bruce Wayne. Then she designed a pre-scripted family life up to and including the brutal murder of the child's parents, just to manufacture another Batman. If fury is cracking open his 'butterfly files' and deliberately sabotaging their lives for the sole purpose of manufacturing good agents and potential supers, we may be in a little deeper than we thought.
>>29865169wait, yes to both, no to both?
>>298651691 But only to tell her whats going on. She shouldn't be involved.
We should tell her what's happening at the very least.
Come on people, we promised to always keep Felicia in the loop on things.
>>29865229This. There is literally no reason not to keep her informed.
>>29865217>>29865169Changing my vote to 1
>>29865229>>29865226We should also tell her about the Hard Drive and how our suspicions about Norman Osborn just got a lot more shakey.And the Speedwagon Foundation thing.

Rolled 15>>29865829this... is trueshe needs more guidance and 'training' before we get her a costumehell the fact she's a little girl is likely gonna create major issues when the news outlets see a little girl fighting alongside spiderman
>>29865811I'm hoping deadpool
>>29865843We did during the December timeskip in addition to investigating the Sandman robberies.>>29865858Hence why she needs to illusion herself as a young adult along with a costume, and be able to hold it indefinitely.
>>29865858If you want to wax philosophical and instill your moral guidelines, that's fine, but she doesn't need that to hit people.
>>29865876when it was specifically noted that Spider-man hadn't been seen lately and it came into question if he would do anything about it.
>>29865891Those chains of hers are quite deadly. A strict no-kill policy has to be there as well.
Rolled 1>>29865891... she needs to be old enough to have boobs at LEAST.the fact she's a little girl is undesguisable. she can illusion an adult, but how long can she hold that mid-combat?Also precision without overdestruction.that's basically the training she needs. or rather the test she needs to pass before we consider taking her with us
>>29865948She was hesitant to use the chains as a weapon anyways, since they are, like, part of her or something.
Do we even know how long she can use an illusion for now?I seem to recall it being a laughably short time last time
>>29865962>... she needs to be old enough to have boobs at LEAST.I don't see why. If she wants to fight, why not let her?
Rolled 9>>29865988...2 words: Child soldieralso: we may know she's capable, but having a little girl beat the crap outta people is unethical.it's also scary as hell.
>>29865988Because we promised her a better life than the apocalyptic wasteland and endless wars her original timeline offered. She watches cartoons, we'll do the fighting.
>>29866037But she was clearly mad at us for not letting her fight.
>>29866046No, she was mad at us for leaving her alone on Christmas.
>>29866046Or it might just be that we're ditching her on Christmas.
>>29866046Or mad that we aren't building snowmen with her now
>>29865988Because she's 12.>>29866046So? Kids aren't the best judges on what's best for them in life.
>>29866046She can be mad at us all she wants. We're still her 'big brother' and we say that she's not allowed into combat until she's old enough to date.
So Peter introduced Gwen to the Storms, but do they know she's Scarlet Spider?
PAGE 10 GUYS!Rev up those archives!
>>29866072No, but Conan is. And what is best in life?
>>29866083Sue is probably smart enough to guess it.
>>29866072>Because she's 12.She's not even really 12. Fast-grown clone, remember? She's 2~ish with a crap-load of extra memories and training downloaded into her brain.
>>29866046Let her be mad. Kid sidekicks are morally abhorrent and the most irresponsible thing a superhero can do.
>>29866103That's what I figured.
>>29866037>>29866046>>29866058>>29866062I'm going to interject here and say it's incredibly hypocritical to tell her the whole "Great Power, Great Responsibility" spiel and then say she has to live a normal everyday life while we fight bad guys despite the fact that she very clearly has Great Power.
Rolled 1>>29866108her brain development is still that of a 12 year-oldshe needs that plasticity to settle firstAlso for her to not look like a little girl.
>>29866145I'd also offer that conflict is an important part of human nature. We like to fight. It's not a bad thing.
>>29866145I'm all for her becoming a hero once she's 17. Same age as Peter, Felicia, and Gwen.
Rolled 13>>29866108Not really/ She had plenty of time to age in the 20 year future timeskip. She's also one of the most dangerous people in New York, at the moment
>>29866162No more rolling for you.
>>29866162>for her not to look like a little girl.>master of illusionummm....
>>29866145It's not as hypocritical as saying that we want to keep our loved ones safe and then sending in this kid to fight maniacs throwing pumpkin bombs.
>>29866222She needs to train her illusions more. With Felicia, Gwen, or Sue. They can see them, we can't.
She might be upset, but she's learning an important lesson here.Being a superhero isn't convenient.
>>29866222master of illusion that at last report could maintain said illusion for 2 minutes.
Rolled 15>>29865962>>29866162I... I didn't just get two 1s in a row... >>29866222Yes, because we'll have her set up an illlusion as she fights. It's not like it'll make it harder to fight. We don't even know how long she can HOLD the illusion. If we want her to fight with us in the future we need to test these things first
>>29866234She's a half clone of Loki (Maybe). Ignoring who the other half is, she'd still be pretty badass.
>>29866187We need to have a solid talk with Stella about this, then.Next time we get the chance, we'll bring up to her that we're considering letting her help with superheroing. As it is now, we'd be jumping her right into the fray half-cocked.
>>29866228When said kid is "one of the most dangerous people in New York" it's not a matter of keeping her safe. It's a matter of keeping her out of helping us in exchange for a normal life despite the fact she is clearly strong enough to take up the responsibility we have too.It's not a matter of age but power. She has power but we're basically keeping her out of the responsibilities that come with it.
>>29866285With great power, comes great responsibility. Which also comes with tact. And secrecy. And subtlety.It's not all cut-and-dry.
>>29866285I like this, also just because Cos said "one of the most dangerous people in New York" doesn't mean she herself is strong (which she is) but maybe the relations to certain people or gods that might take notice if she is out in the open,
>>29866274"I wanted you to try and have a normal life, but I can see that you're not happy. So if you want, I'd like to traid you to help out in the field."
>>29866285We can't help but worry about her. If she gets good enough with her illusions to keep a simple one on herself (to look like something else or be invisible) indefinitely and use a few others to mess with people I'd be fine with her joining us.
>>29866311Unfortunately, tact and subtelty are lost on children and this is how she's seeing it.What I'm saying is we need to sit down and seriously talk to Stella about helping with superheroing. Bring up our concerns. Listen to hers. Stop making decisions for her without talking to her.
>>29866330Lets see if thats what she is actually upset about first. She might just be mad her bro has to go and do shit
>>29866285Having a normal life is part of being safe. And you should also notice Cosgrove's terminology there. She's one of the most dangerous people in NY. Not one of the most (say) bullet resistant.
>>29866330Or we could give her a prompt to come out and tell us that is what she wants she totally does, no reason to stick it in her head if she's just mad we are leaving on christmas.
>>29866351Then you should tell her that instead of just not letting her go with us until she meets a hidden prerequisite.
>>29866187Hey cos, just something I was wondering. Did we inadvertently jump start the Age of Marvels when we brought her back?I remember a thing saying something about when the asgardians return?
>>29866389That'd be a spoiler, anon.
>>29866401You're not Cosgrove.
>ZA FOOL>Fool Alpha-The hospital was a lonely place. It was a scary place too.Only Daddy can help her.Her disease recovered, her health improved. But she’s been having strange relapses. A fever and sudden dizzy-ness and fainting.She dreams of a red demon, grinning with black teeth.It’s going to eat her daddy.But-but her daddy knows a hero! He gave her the picture of him and Spider-man.He’ll certainly be able to beat up the demon and save her daddy.So that she and Daddy can live happily ever-William Baker looks down at his daughter’s flushed face and weak breathing as he calls for a nurse. Her letters to Spider-man clenched into a hand as he desperately fights back tears.>Next- Fool Beta
>>29866374I plan to if it's what she's angry about.
>>29866455>TWO FOOLSAlpha and Beta.They will be parthers or mortal enemies.
>>29866481The fool was Baker last time wasn't it?
>>29866455Shit, man. If he wants to talk to Spider-Man, he could always call him out like Hobbes did.Flint, you're heart's in the right place, but you're not very smart.
>>29866455This poor kid can't catch a break.
>>29866481>>29866495The other is Anya.
>>29866455Man, we need to help him out. Sandman is awesome. He can also join our Avengers
8 from the bottom
>>29866455wait; when did we pose for a picture with someone?
>>29866572The receptionist at the hospital
>>29866572The asylum guard
>>29866572He was at the desk when we asked to see Dr. Spyral, and he asked for a picture.
>>29866455Oh crap, Cos actually understand how the Fool functions in the deck.
>>29866572At the mental hospital. The reception clerk told us his name was William Baker (Flint Marco's real name) and we took a picture with him. Signed it too.
Maaaaaaaaaabe we can visit Doc again one day and then do some gut wrenching feels and visit his daughter.
It’s been a number of months- but a hero’s job is never done!If you’re not good enough as you are, work harder! Try harder, until you’ve reached your limited. If you’ve done you’re best, your efforts will surely be rewarded. That’s what pops says.So, to start with- one hundred pushup. One hundred sit-up, and one hundred quarts, along with running ten miles. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.Also, there’s learning to take falls and doing difficult building climbs- starting small with the playground and park.When you master that? DOUBLE IT!Start picking fights with boys- learn how to fight!Sure- everyone’s kinda scared of you as you’re the toughest girl, but you’ve got a goal. You’re going to force Spider-man to make you his sidekick!And if he turns you down, you’re going to still show up and kick butt anyway!Anya Corazon, the Amazing Spider-girl!>Fool OMEGA next
>>29866667At least you can probably get a nice wig in New York.
>>29866667>one hundred quartsBit of a heavy drinker for a little girl.
Rolled 18>>29866667>Fool OmegaReally now?
>>29866667Feels great to know we're having such an effect on people.
>>29866667Oh... Poor Anya...>Fool OMEGA next...The Rabbit?
>>29866667what what what
>>29866712She goes on /fit/.Though I think she may be taking the GOMAD bulk too far.
>>29866712fucking autocorrect.should be 'Squats'
>>29866712MY WHAT A GUY ANYA!
>>29866741All she's missing is OATS.
>>29866667>I could only imagine how she'll react on the small chance Stella will beat her to it
>>29866667The best sidekick we could ask for
Alright, so the X-Men are there... The Storms are there... We're showing up and bringing Felicia and Gwen... And Sandman and Anya are both looking for a way to get in contact with us (And will probably see us on TV with all the ruckus that's about to get kicked up)... This is going to be a whole thing, isn't it?
