You are Lucas Bishop, mutant vagrant.

You’re in an apartment belonging to your friend’s (apparently) dead dad. Everything is insanely neat and tidy and pretty much untouched, which honestly creeps you out far more than it would if it was all smashed up and abandoned-looking. You’re currently craning over Kevin’s shoulder as he dissolves a suspiciously loose bit of flooring.

“Come on, come on, come on…” Chants Layla, hands at the ready to dive in and proclaim dibs on whatever you guys have found.

Gaby sits beside her, looking more anxious than you’ve ever seen her – which is saying something. She holds her tail around her waist with both hands, making sure it doesn’t spaz out and smack something. It wriggles occasionally in her grasp.

Noriko stands around on the balcony, watching the courtyard below.

The wooden floorboard crumbles to dust at Kevin’s touch, and Layla reaches in, fishing around in the dark. Eventually, her eyes widen, and she pulls something out.

It’s a single, unmarked computer disc, its casing covered by a thick layer of dust.

“Huh.” She narrows her eyes at it. “This better tell us where the actual treasu”–

“Hey, guys!” Noriko rushes into the room, her eyes trailing tiny sparks. “Time to go! Dunno how, but I think we may have company or something.”

Superniggerspeed the shit outta here. Zoom right through the incoming peeps, give Noriko, Layla and Kevin enough time to make their get away safely.

The bigger a quest gets the less affect people have on the quest. HMQ is one of the most popular ones currently on /tg/. We as individuals have very little impact on what happens in the quest.

>[X] Yeah you guys should find somewhere to play this disc thing.

Well, if she says so. You ain’t arguing with Noriko over this.

Or, y’know, in general.

You make like a whole forest and get out of there, Gaby making a quick interspatial (it is so cool that ‘interspatial’ is a word you can use in everyday conversation now. Sometimes you don’t think anyone else appreciates quite how cool that is) jump to one of the nearby roofs. On the way out, Noriko nudges you, nodding toward the southerly end of the courtyard, where it opens out into the street. There are six unmarked white vans parked in a perfect row.

They don’t have number-plates.

You quickly look away and do your best to appear innocuous. It appears to work, and soon enough the four of you (plus Gaby, her presence snapping from one nearby building to the next) are almost three or four blocks from the scene of the crime. You breathe out a long sigh of relief.

Looks like you're not going to mutie jail today.

“So…” You look down at the disk pinched between Layla’s fingers. “I guess we should find somewhere to play that thing?”

Kevin and Noriko share some kind of look. What was that?

“I dunno…” Says Kevin, his brow slightly furrowed. “…This kinda seems like a… personal… thing.”

JJ has been keeping a lot of secrets lately, and he's been acting pretty damn scary. I think it might be better to see what's on this thing first before just handing it off to the guy who seems ready to go NUCLEAAAAAR at the drop of a hat.
>>
>>40860069
More people also makes it less likely for write-in's to win. The thread is pretty slow right now so write-in's could totally work. But there has been times when I came up with what I thought was a really good write-in but in the 5 minutes it took to come up with it there had already been over 20 votes cast. Chances are nobodies going to even see it.

That said it's pretty slow right now so a good write-in could make a difference. At least until it speeds up.
>>
>>40859991
>>[ ] Nope you want to see this.
I think vetting the DVD is a good idea. JJ did not handle the news about an apartment being owned in his dad's name, and we can explain that to Noriko.

Plus, IWANNASEE!
>>
>>40860192
>>40859991

>>
>>40859991
>>40860192

>>
>>40860226
no he hasn't, JJ's been pretty open, Lucas just wasn't there for when JJ revealed shit about his sister or his dad, or when we found jack was muties. I do agree that he is volatile though, and we should vet the video and let him know what's on it or how bad it is
>>
>>40860226
>>40860303
or that he was a ganster, and that he worked for Creeper. If anything, he's been pretty transparent. Why, he's practically see through!
>>
>>40860192
I'mma also second this
>>
>>40860303

Maybe what he meant was, "we honestly know next to nothing about who JJ actually is".
>>
>>40860332
>If anything, he's been pretty transparent.

More or less of a transparent than Caitlyn Jenner?
>>
>>40859991
>[ ] Yeah, you guess he’s right.
>>
>>40860347
but we do, kinda. Noriko and the gang (minus Lucas) know that JJ was a gang banger, that he has rage problems (see that fight with one of the Corsairs), that his dad was a geneticist, that he's been a hobo for a long time, etc.

If anything, they know more about JJ then JJ knows about them
>>
>>40860409

So what you're saying is, it would be completely in character for Lucas (the odd one out) to want to know more about JJ.
>>
>>40860453
Touche'. I wasn't really arguing against seeing the video in the first place though, just that JJ wasn't really keeping that many secrets (except his desire for gross mutie flesh)
>>
That sounds like a great way to repay JJ for healing Lucas. JJ's risked his life multiple times to save the team. Now we're just going to invade his privacy.
>>
>>40859991
>[ ] Yeah, you guess he’s right.
>>
>>40860491
how do you know the disc is about JJ?
>>
>>40860491
Anon is a dick.

>>40860497
Crusty's probably done writing by now.
>>
>>40860491

We already invaded his privacy, with his blessing.
>>
>>40860518
JJ asked us to see if his dad was alive. That's it.
>>
>>40860491
That's not quite how I see it. Yes, it's an invasion of privacy, but JJ was really out of sorts when he found out about this apartment. I could see Lucas just wanting to make sure the video didn't have anything horrifying on it and letting him know beforehand what's on it or what to expect when watching
>>
>>40860518
Dude is unstable right now, we need to know ahead of time if this is the kind of thing he can handle raw or needs to be prepped for.

Well, he’s probably right…

But you can’t help but remember the way JJ looked after he found out about this place. What if whatever’s on this disk is a bomb of nuclear proportions? You have no idea what’s on there – it could be his dad’s favourite old-timey TV series, or it could be something that fries his brain from the inside to the outside.

“I dunno…” You don’t really like saying this. “…I think we might wanna make sure it isn’t something that’d really tear him up…”

You can tell that Kevin still isn’t sure, but he’s outvoted when Noriko steps in, and after a brief search you manage to track down a dinky little internet café overlooking the beach. Noriko shells out for an hour and you cluster around one of the machines tucked away in the nicest, quietest little corner you can find, where nobody’ll be looking over your shoulder.

“She’s putting it in now…” Kevin whispers to Gaby on his phone, giving her a step-by-step of the situation as Layla gets the computer running and inserts the disk.

It’s empty save for a set of three video files.

The four of you glance at one another, and Layla opens the first one.

The world of the video is a dark one. I takes you a moment to recognize the apartment – it’s in an entirely different shape, cluttered with piles of old, worn books and pieces of inscrutable, delicate-looking machinery. The blinds are shut tight; you’d think it were night but for the faintest slithers of light occasionally peeling through.

Half the image is dominated by a wrinkled, dotted shirt. Its wearer grunts quietly, apparently fiddling with the camera, and there is a small “ah”, before it shrinks back and the owner of the voice sits down in front of the bed.

He’s a tall, pale man with narrow features and tussled, dark hair. Heavy, dark bags hang under his eyes and he looks like he hasn’t shaved – or changed – in a while.
>>
>(2/2)

The first thing he does is sigh.

“Hey.” He says, eventually, his voice cracking slightly. “I, uh… I guess…”

He glances into the camera almost fearfully, and quickly looks away.

“…I don’t know if anyone’s ever going to see this, so…” His fingers knot and unknot. He swallows. “I hope somebody does. I hope you do. Eventually. Somehow. Maybe, in a year or two, I’ll be back home and this will be nothing but a sore memory, left to gather dust, but…”

He looks down, and for a moment, his face reminds of something old and weathered, like one of those angels left out under the rain for far too long.

“…Well, maybe that’ll happen. But I can’t come back today, and… I probably can’t come back tomorrow. I’ve made some very… difficult… people very angry, and as long as they think I’m alive, everyone I love – everyone I know, probably – is in danger.”

He looks back at the camera. His eyes are blue, like clear skies.

“I’m trying.” He says, quietly, before leaning in to shut the video down.

That’s it.

I also think we'll be able to watch this again later, but JJ might go into freakout territory and I'd rather we review it just in case.

Doesn't matter whether we as players see get to know the contents or not.

>>40861014

We double 1 the spot check, we might get hit by a moon sized meteorite, as far as we know.

>>40861041
And probably the longest, too.

>>40861014
With the way JJ has been its safer to have the ability to forewarn him of what the videos contain, and JJ would most likely have shared them anyway.

“Was that… JJ’s dad?” You ask, breaking the reverent silence.

“Think so.” Says Layla, her voice quiet. “He showed me some pictures once.”

The four of you glance at one another in silence, it quickly becoming clear that nobody wants to be the one to rev up the next video file.

“Maybe… maybe we should take this back to the station.”

You were prepared for something heavy, but not this heavy. For all your talk of making sure this stuff wasn’t gonna rip up JJ’s brain, once you’re actually sitting there watching it, you can’t help but feel strangely ashamed and maybe even a little perverse.

Noriko nods silently and closes the folder.

You pull out your phone, open a new text, and think really, really hard about what the hell to say.

You are John James Green, mutant vagrant.

You’re looking for the Roxxon Science Institute. According to your Moon Phone, it’s somewhere on the edge of Queens, where the river overlooks Manhattan on one side and the Bronx on the other. Not immensely far from where you got smeared by Mr. Negative, actually. It’s important that you find it quickly, because it will give you something to think about that isn’t your dad, and…

Walking beside you, Laura holds onto your hand with a sort of grim determination about her, her eyes fixed straight ahead and her knuckles almost turning white.

…You might not be the nicest person when you’re thinking about your dad.

Which isn’t your fault, really.

Or maybe it is? There’s probably loads of ways for it to be your fault. What if he left because you displeased him somehow? Like, what if –

You shake your head slightly. No, that’s dumb.

That’s dumb.

You glance down at the time. Peter’s probably waiting for you by now.

“Sorry for freaking out.” You just blurt it out suddenly. You’re not sure what to say next, actually. Or do.

So you don’t really say or do anything. You just walk along the road in silence, watching Laura out the corner of her eye. She’s thinking.

“It is fine.” She says, eventually. “I am… sorry… that I cannot help. I don’t understand the relationship you have”– Had, you interject, in the privacy of your own head. The relationship you had. – “with your father. I felt…” She pauses, and seems to almost squirm, the word she’s looking for is a poisonous one “…sad when my biological mother expired, but I cannot, truly, say that I knew her.”

You feel a sharp pang of guilt. You guess this must be really awkward for her.

“I’m sure she loved you very much.” You say, a little cautiously. Laura glances up at you with surprised look on her face. “Who wouldn’t?”

Slowly, she turns her eyes back toward the street, returning to her thoughts.

“I hope so.”

The red above is dimming when finally see a sign proclaiming ROXXON SCIENCE INSTITUTE (Chasing the Future Since 1989) up ahead. The building beyond it is actually a little smaller than you imagined – three ground floor complexes situated across a large, meticulously cut lawn. The central building is crowned by a curved, entirely glass roof.

You spot Peter and Chat outside, near the sign. They’re talking to someone else – big, blonde dude with a broad smile.

Suddenly, your stomach churns, and a bolt of familiar lightning arcs along your spine. There’s something wrong about that guy – something wrong about the way he smells, the way he sweats, the way he feels. He’s not even laughing properly; it’s all fake.

You feel your claws pushing at the fabric of your gloves.

Oh sweet lord.

If only we had that sonic scream thing.

Or maybe he's actually just the worlds most annoying dick, and our danger sense is telling us not to get caught up in his shit, like a sensible anon who sees obvious bait but takes it anyway.

At least if we go into Riastad/have some control over it, we can ruin any symbiote's day.
>>
>>40861997
It's the same thing anon, we have an inherent danger sense like Peter
>>
>>40861997

Our danger sense IS giving us the clue. Enhanced senses just helps more, and Kinesics is what lets us tell that his persona is completely fake.

>>40862002
Carnage, she was Carnage

Green Sense is totally giving him it.

>Suddenly, your stomach churns, and a bolt of familiar lightning arcs along your spine.

Enhanced Senses are also doing it, of course, but also JJ's danger sense.

>>40862002

Not at all.

Mary Jane was Carnage in Cosgrove's quest, though.

And Clone!Gwen was sorta Carnage in the Ultimate Universe.

Not sure why people are arguing about Spider Sense. But, Venom is only immune to Peter's Spider sense because the symbiote was once part of Peter. JJ's danger sense will work just fine against Venom.

Fun fact: JJ's danger sense won't work against Typhon because of the time they spent in the cocoon.
>>
>>40862087
It's more that as we change there's a MASSIVE sonic boom that'll shatter glass all around us (and smaller ones going off over time) and we'll also be on fire/giving off a TON of heat.

In short, the Symbiote will be invited to Mr. Bones' wild ride.

It may be different for Peter. He might have a sense of unease, while we have our senses directly tied to the crackbitch sense, so we know more about what's 'wrong'.

Almost reflexively, you cloak. The raw, bloody arch of the sky turns the colour of dusk as you shrink from the visible world. Laura glances up at you.

“John…?”

You watch him, watch his mouth move, watch the laughter rock through him. Lies. Lies, lies, lies. Everything he says is lies. He’s seething on the inside – and not just with anger. It’s more than that. And, somehow, less. A part of it is so basic and vicious, it barely seems human.

“…You can’t smell that?”

Laura looks confused for a moment, but her brow furrows after she sniffs the air, and you feel the muscles tightening across her body.

“Yes.” She says. “I can.”

The guy fakes his way through a quick hug and heads back toward the Science Institute. You wait until he’s inside to drop your cloak and approach.

“Hey.”

Peter glances in your direction, jumping a little. “Hey.”

“Hi, guys.” Says Chat, waving. “How’s it going?”

Terrible.

“Not so bad.” You respond. “Who was that?”

Peter blinks.

“The guy you were just talking to.”

“Oh.” He smiles awkwardly. “That’s Eddie. He’s an old friend. Actually, he’s the one that had a look at your… stuff. He works under the guy that runs this place.”

That’s Peter’s science friend? He honestly looked more the dudebro type. All sorts, guess.

All sorts of crazy weird-smelling psychopaths.

“Not to alarm you or anything, but your friend is probably an alien. Stake his heart now.”

Chat laughs. Peter just looks confused.

“…Um, what?”

“It’s…” What are you supposed to even say? That he smells wrong? “…He just seemed kinda tense back there. Is he mad at you or something?”

“Oh…” Peter rolls out another awkward smile, his shoulders falling a little. “…Yeah. Kinda. You could tell?” You nod. Peter winces. “I kinda messed up recently, and it didn’t go too well for him. He has a right to be a little angry at me. Honestly, I’m just glad we’re still talking.”

A little angry is one thing. This is something else.

“Alright, dude.” Not alright, but dropped for now. “How about that icky stuff I found, eh?”

“Right, yeah… about that…”

The four of you make your way along the street until you come to a small park. Occasionally shooing off a bunch of extremely persistent magpies, you find your way to a secluded bench sitting under the shadow of an old, withered oak, and Peter lets the nerdworks flow freely. He uses a lot of words – some of which you understand, some of which you don’t, and some you have this weird feeling about, like you should know them, but their exact meaning escapes you for now.

“…Basically, it’s like cancer tissue, but very specific in the way it’s grown. It’s like something switched off the function that tells certain cells to stop replicating – not just switched it off, but changed it, so that everything starts growing at a way way accelerated rate.” He pauses, taking a long breath. Chat reminds him that, yes, breathing is necessary, even when there is science happening. “The really weird stuff is at the genetic level. Uh, you know how chromosomes are made up?”

You nod. “Mostly.”

“Okay, good.” This guy would make a great teacher. You bet he tutors dudes at school. Or gets his homework copied a lot. “Well, normally, a human chromosome contains thousands of individual genes. This stuff, though – well, it’s damaged, but other than that – is really, really homogenous. Almost every other DNA segment is some variation of the X-gene, and at some point they were all trying to activate, at the same time.”

Oh. That sounds bad. You can imagine how that ended up with an unrecognizable flesh-soup.

"Peter, that guy smells like he was lying through his teeth, hates your very being, and the core of him is even worse. Smells like something happened to him or infected him."
>>
>>40863295
Jack, in and of itself, allows a mutant to switch off their power like a suppressor. To some it stops it totally, to others it suppresses enough to allow control.

Street Jack is that + a shit tone of proteins from your normal cells that have also been permo switched into a single state. In normal humans this more likely than not causes cancer. Most people will be healthy and lucky enough to not be affected, since its not an injection intake. unlucky or unhealthy folks might take up the cancer causing part. Also more likely if their stupid enough to inject, or a regular user.

Sounds bad sure, but among this there is a certain percentage of people who have soup gene guys reaction, were some of the other regulatory genes for X genes are swept into the mix. Essentially the genes that rewrite some other parts of the genome go nuts and print everywhere. Rapidly burning through energy, destroying normal cell function and leading to a rapid and very very painful demise.

“Does your friend have any idea where it came from?”

Peter shrugs. “A human being? It’s all technically human tissue. It’s just… gone really wrong.”

“Super creepy.” Says Chat, shivering a little. “To think, that could’ve been any of us…”

You frown slightly. “No, that’s not how the X-gene works.”

There’s a certainty in your voice that surprises even you. Why do you feel so confident about that? Why do you suddenly have a tiny headache?

You try to think about something else.

“Where is it now?”

“Oh, right.” Peter leans back on the bench, pausing to breathe a bit of hot hair onto his hands. Weak indoors people. “Eddie still has it. He wants his boss to have a look at it, thinks it could be dangerous or something. It seemed inert to me.”

You don’t like the idea of that guy having that stuff. You don’t like that at all.

“…By the way, JJ…” You glance over at Peter. He looks kinda serious. Tone of his voice has shifted, too. He almost sounds… older. “I’ve heard about what you guys’re doing. There’s a video of you and Mr. Negative on YouTube, you know?” Your heart thumps in your chest. Ohshi– “I mean, it’s blurry, you’d only think it was you if you knew what you could do already, but… guys like Mr. Negative are really dangerous. Someone could get seriously hurt like this.”
>>
>(2/2)

Someone did get seriously hurt. Still, though, the concern is nice.

“Don’t worry.” You say, smiling slightly. “I guarantee that I will be doing everything in my power to avoid ever seeing Mr. Negative again.”

He looks pleased enough with that. “Cool.”

“In return, though, keep a close eye on your friend.”

“What, Eddie?”

You nod. “Yeah, him. He smells wrong. And, uh, probably sounds weird, but I have this sorta danger sense…”

Chat glances over at Peter. “No…” She says. “…that’s not that weird…”

“…Okay.” What. “Well, it was going haywire around him. Don’t know what it means, but I do trust it. Watch him.”

Peter frowns, but you can see it sinking in.

“Sure.”

Soon enough, the evening has grown too cold for the non-homeless sorts, and the four of you split up, Peter and Chat heading home. You wander aimlessly along the Queens streets with Laura.

Oh and another possible side effect is cells rotting away in a living person, since they are designed by evolution to commit suicide (apoptosis) if they display cancer signals.
So a street jack user who is losing weight is probably "rotting" from the inside out in a sense.

>>
>>40863736
>, it's what was in that syringe Typhoon had/has

I don't think he said that.

He said it'd give us +1 Critical Instability though, and 2 X-Points.
>>
>>40863456
>[ ] Check the Science Institute
>>
>>40863736
I'm aware. He also said it would give us some free X-points, though. Granted there'd be some instability to work through, but X-points!
>>
>>40863703
>>40863736
Eating the sample would give us Genetic Instability, with an X-Point boost. Genetic Instability would make JJ's anger worse and make his powers less controllable (claws and horns popping out without him wanting them to).

In short, don't eat cancer.

With the evening gradually shifting toward night and the cold settling in, you decide to get inside. Specifically, you decide to get inside that science place and get that weird crap back. You’re not letting it stay in that angry ass freak’s hands.

As you approach the building, your phone rumbles in your pocket, and you find a text from Lucas waiting.

>hi man
>found some stuff, you probably want to see
>heading home now

Huh. There’s that feeling of intense, terrifying vertigo again, right on cue. You quickly shove your phone away, as if hiding it will somehow help.

“What was that?” Asks Laura.

“N-nothing.” You respond, quickly. “Lucas is heading back.”

She nods, and you feel her grip on your hand tighten momentarily. She’s soft, and warm, and for a moment you feel nothing but that.

You give the Science Institute a long look. It seems bigger, somehow.

“This won’t take long.” You say.

>[X] Da Roof.

You think you can make out a glass hatch set into the curve of the roof. Seems like a good way in.

Fading out of visibility, you scale the side of the building without effort. The curved glass of the roof gives you just as little trouble as the concrete walls below, and soon enough you’re perched awkwardly on one side of the building, looking down into the long, sterile room below.

It’s an open plan construction, with separate spaces kept disjoined from one another by thin, shoulder high walls – you’d imagine that each little segment represents a separate field of research, or a different professor’s personal space. The place is, despite what you imagined, full of life – there are tiny heat signatures everywhere. Rats scurry in their glass boxes. A huge, faintly luminous tank full of what you assume to be electric eels squats in one corner. Snakes shift and rustle in their cages.

Only two sets of human sounds, though. Both are faint – you think one’s actually outside somewhere, while the other must be in one other adjoined buildings.

Easing the hatch open, you clamber your way down.

Immediately, some of the rats start squeaking. You ‘suggest’ that they calm down, and for the most part they do. They’re very frightened for some reason. All the animals here are.

Doom is also another egomaniac who wants to control the world and would imprison JJ because giving everyone powers is retarded. Giving the samples to someone is still stupid, because then we have private mutant armys and shit. This is marvel, anyone with sense will destroy that plant on instinct. Which is probably very few people. Healing people? fine, happy, but stick to JJ's blood. Letting folks grow their own mutant powers is going to backfire heavily.

Don't get me wrong, Doom can be quite a bro if your on his good side.

>Re: Doom

My impression of Doom is that he wouldn't necessarily hate JJ, but he would hate the idea of JJ existing, and everyone knowing about him. It would become problematic. Doom doesn't need a mutant army to do what Doom does, but he needs other people NOT to have mutant armies, and JJ existing compromises that.

It's a scenario he'd quickly decide to eliminate as a possibility or contain entirely.

Blood is worse than tree. making connections between us, and a tree, is harder than us, and our blood. We are more likely to be captured for our blood, than for trafficking fruits, and trees for our "organization JJ". We can just say that the tree is not ours, and get off scot free. Or say that we work for Dr.Doom/Magneto/Mr.Sinester, and this is his good will gift.

>[X] Look around a bit before you find the sample.

You breathe in deeply. There are a lot of smells here – lots of things that fizz and pop. The air is full of it. Lots of animal smells, too. Shed scales, old droppings, bits of hair. It’s all small stuff that most people wouldn’t even notice, but for you, it’s a mess to sort through.

Luckily, your nose is basically a miracle of the universe.

Looking around upturns some rather interesting stuff. One of the little office-space thingies appears devoted to research on data taken from something called a ‘Tactigon’. You’re not sure what that is, but most of the focus is on some kind of weird glove suspended inside a glass box. One of the other cubicles has this bunch of odd little pellets on display throughout it.

Passing down the center of the room, you notice a little section with the nametag “Brock, Edward” on it, and can’t help bit take a look inside. Apparently he’s doing research on some kind of… suit? Like a weird cocoon suit that heals people or something.

Huh. You feel like you’ve heard an idea like that before somewhere.

You find your cancer-gene-stuff stuffed away in some kind of locker set into one of the walls. There’s a whole bunch of them – you guess they’re all for keeping dangerous crap out of easy reach. Most of the scents behind them are distinctly acidic.

Whereas your sample just smells like death.

The locker seems to require a key.

You guess you could track that down. Maybe one of the guys still in the building have one.

Or, you are very strong.

>The Tactigon was a very powerful weapon that found any enemy's weakness and adapted itself to exploit it. It was capable of emitting destructive energy blasts and could change its shape to conventional or esoteric weapons to fit whatever the situation required. It could also take over computers around it to gain information.

>It was classified as Omega Class and Omega-Level weapon, and granted the status of Omega Level threat to KIA when he was in it possession. It was compared to be at least at the level of the Kree Nega-Bands, Thor's hammer Mjolnir, and possibly even to the level of the Cosmic Cube.

Anon, your doing that thing again where you're pulling shit out of your ass. Just because JJ could produce the fruit doesn't make him an automatic target, nor would it necessarily mean society would collapse if it somehow was mass produced (highly fucking unlikely) Nor are all mutant powers inherently destructive; some are wholly beneficial. And if, the new influx of mutants caused societal changes, then so what? Curing cancer would do that, industrialization did that, the radio did that, the television did that, the cellphone did that, and the smart phone did that.

You're also ignoring that the brightest minds in Marvel wouldn't try to make it so the fruit could cure things WITHOUT causing mutation.

And to imply that we'd somehow unify any person we treated with the fruit to create a mutant army is ludicrous. JJ isn't a militant person, and wouldn't see the benefit of unifying people like that.

if he produces it and distributes it, then that fruit is a target as soon as its properties become known, if they find out jj makes them, he becomes a target. Not an asspull.

mass production could be as simple as a damn farm. Once genetics is changed, all you have to do is grow the seeds, So very fucking likely is the first point happens at all.

See: grenades for not very destructive, see antimatter bomb for very destructive.
The outcome is random, any chance of someone with an antimatter level power is a bad thing.

You have a point with the without causing mutations part, but who would you trust with that? and who in gods name would not get their shit stolen and the research reversed?

People are pragmatic. If someone learnt of a miracle cure that also gave powers, and word got to any military institution (hello disabled and wounded veterans) they would go after it.

So: none of that is asspull, but valid reasoning. You made one good point about healing without mutation. Figure out a way to get that done and i will happily back the plan. Otherwise? no way in hell.

Except why the hell would JJ make a farm of fruit trees if the properties about it were known? It would just take one person eating the fruit for him to realize what it does. At that point, why the hell would he be anything but cautious? This is the guy who was afraid of going into a cellphone store or eating spaghetti at a flatscan's house. JJ is properly paranoid, for the most part

As for finding someone to do good with the fruit, it wouldn't be difficult if JJ was T3 given he'd do things at a more global scale at that point. He'd probably meet people like Reed or Tony or even Professor X.

You sniff the lock, and immediately, you catch the exact taste and tone of metal that indicates ‘key’. The smell crisscrosses along the room, but it’s at its freshest near the door on one side, leading out into the adjoining building.

Yoinking the glove on your way (honestly, it just looks really cool, you don’t even really care what it is), you take a closer look at it. The majority of it is some kind of skin-tight, synthetic substance that reminds you of thinly-stretched rubber. It’s covered in thin, white plating made from some kind of lightweight metal or maybe a plastic composite, segmented along the fingers and tapering off near the twist. The palm has some kind of plug or circuit thingy embedded in it – it reminds you of the things that Iron Man is always pointing at the camera when he poses for TV ads or whatever, the bits that give him thrust or whatever.

You’ll try it on later. They’ve probably got plenty of copies here, and Roxxon have a reputation for dumping oil where oil is not mean to be dumped, so… you feel only little bad for depriving them of their cool glove.

Or gauntlet? It’s really more of a gauntlet.

Following the coppery scent of key, you slip between the doors leading to the adjoining building. There’s a long corridor, which opens out into essentially a small version of the main room, adorned with less in the way of interesting stuff. The table in the center of the room is occupied by –

Your stomach tenses up. It’s that guy from earlier. Peter’s friend.

He’s slouched over the table, radiating sheets of pure anger. There’s some kind of weird sphere thing on the surface in front of him, like a giant, black egg. You can sense the frustration peeling off him.

The key is in one of his coat pockets.

Guys, I think we should give the Tactigon to Laura.

She'll be able to make waaaaaaaaay better use of it than us either way considering she'll know how to use it guaranteed to matter what form it takes. Plus it'll give her the same kind of versatility we have in a fight, she's good, but she doesn't have near the range of options we have.

>>40865570
Dude it's totally worth at least $3.50

We would certainly get a pissed Venom tracking our asses by scent. Though we might get that anyway.
>>
>>40865593
and then she breaks it with her claws
>>
>>40865570
If anything we'll get karma for taking the Tactigon form Roxxon.
>>
>>40865576
We make a villain paranoid, scared, or monologue. It's a win. Or we make an ally, and do a fetch quest (way less likely).
>>
>>40865570
You will get one Canadian karma point.
It's like a regular karma point, but only good for making us apologize.

We didn't know the Tactigon was any good in character either.

To be fair if we get a little angry our claws will fucking destroy it too. We both have that issue.

Besides, I'm pretty sure the Tactigon can adapt to the physiology of the wearer, it should be able to accommodate claws.

>>
>>40865711
Honestly, I'm a little afraid of the responsibility of owning the damn thing, I'd rather schlep it off onto someone else if we must have anything to do with it.

I do genuinely think Laura needs it more than we do. She could probably take out Kimura with it.

Plus I like the idea of us relying solely on mutie powers, not some cosmic artifact, that seems kinda cheap. I'd rather go T3 than have the win glove.

T3 can't be taken away.

Laura getting a weapon capable of taking out Kimura would be pretty nice. I've always felt she should be the one to kill her, not JJ (even if he does help out).

Well… you haven’t done this in a while. But it’s just like stealing a bicycle, right?

You creep closer, shaking your fingers a little to loosen ‘em up. Guy has big, clowny pockets on his coat, great for enterprising little shitheads like you to get all up in. Your hands are kinda bigger than they were back when you were doing this on the reg, but you feel more dexterous than ever, and you think you could probably get some extra reach out of your claws…

“Why…?” Mumbles the guy. Urgh, you always hated it when people talked to themselves while you were trying to take their shit. It activated the ole’ empathy switches. “Why won’t you work? You were – you were doing fine a week ago…”

He slumps further, running his hands through his hair.

Poor guy. Poor guy and his freak scent and his terrible, palpable, possibly insane rage.

He bolts upright, as though struck by a lash, and in an instant he’s wheeled about, searching the room with mad, bloodshot eyes. His heart hammers in his chest, and he looks almost… surprised… at how fast he managed to turn around.

“Christ….” He grips his chest. “Christ! What the hell? What the…”

He freezes, and his eyes trail down to his hands, where something dark and noxious is shifting under his skin, slowly bleeding through in long, ropey lengths of slick black ichor.

“N-no… no… this…” His heart’s going so fast, it should have burst long ago. “…this isn’t real... this isn’t…”

His voice changes. The words bulge and distort and become something inhuman.

Holy shit, you were right.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO VOTE FOR. They're all so awesome.

Natural Weaponry
>JJ’s claws may now be modified so as to be heavy or long (going to 18” at longest and thinnest). They are highly resistant to damage. At this level, JJ may protrude and retract a prehensile, spaded tail capable of gripping solid objects.
Subdermal Bio Weave
>The strengthening of JJ’s soft tissues continues, making it possible for bullets and other high-powered forms of damage to be slowed significantly before they wreak too much havoc on JJ’s internals.
Optic Force Blasts
>At this level, JJ’s force beams can smash reinforced materials and cause significant damage to bones and deep tissue. The beam can be widened to a meter. If shot in standard or lower width, the beams may change direction at one point in their flight.
Winged Flight
>At this level, JJ’s arms remain intact, and instead he may spontaneously grow a set of enormous wings from his back.

OPTICAL FORCE BLASTS
Level 3: At this level, JJ’s force beams can smash reinforced materials and cause significant damage to bones and deep tissue. The beam can be widened to a meter. If shot in standard or lower width, the beams may change direction at one point in their flight.
Level 4: At this level, JJ’s force beams may easily blast apart metallic constructs. They can be ‘reversed’ to draw objects towards JJ rather than pushing them away.

Risk vs reward. We gotta get in melee range of the nasty monster for claws, but we can fly circles around with eye beams.

While in short term claws do more damage, OFB can slowly tire, and damage the enemy, while leaving us relatively intact.
