□Midway Makings□((concluded))


-Midway City- The Graphic Post-Gazette
Headlines:
Deputy Police Commisioner Frazier unravels Mob circuit

Months of lengthy observation, evidence gathering and confidential informants offering many trails to Giovanni Bompensanno, the Channelview Railyards Shipping magnate as the prime suspect of Human trafficing and black market importing of the Mid-West.

Deputy Commisioner Frazier had been quoted in saying:

Had the work of a local union Railroad Lamp and track-Switch operator (Hayden S. Rice) not reported a suspicious cargo hold to the local authorities. Months of police work would have fallen pointlessly ineffective.

Rice had been quoted as saying:
" Hey, im just a union guy making a living. Not a rat.... I dont want any trouble, but i heard kids screaming in a box car. I had to act. I couldnt live with myself if i didnt try to help. I think i did the right thing?"

Some locals have mixed opinions on the matter ranging from ethnic profiling and jaded slandering of Mr. Bompensanno's background of being Sicilian in heritage. To absolute relief of the extracting of the Magnate's business practices and company that inhabited the railyards.

Re: □Midway Makings□


-- Hayden Rice had been a mild mannered Union Railroad lamp toting track worker. Until one night he witnessed first hand while switch operating ...a fallen star that brought a phenomena to Midway City. Being the first to arrive on its impact site. Hayden acquired a small fragment of a meteorite. As if calling out to Earth Dweller, with a whisping smokey green essence. The rock shard Mystically morphed its shape into the likeness of the very light source tooling the Man carried. A lamp like replica? Nearly entranced by its curious trickery. Rice knew he had to acquire the object, and fast. Bringing a new Hero to Midway [sign in to see URL] Grim Sentinel!--

((Love it Grim!))

-Midway City-The Graphic Post-Gazette
Headline:

Arsonist Gang Snuffed out


Reports have come in overnight that the car arsonist gang responsible for over a dozen car fires in the last month, the so called Midway Devils, were apprehended last night by the Midway police department after an anonymous tip came in on the MCPD Hotline. CCTV footage reveals the gang were beaten by a single man,apparently Caucasian, standing over seven feet tall with flowing reddish blond hair. Witnesses have been reluctant to come forward. The few that would speak off the record stated the fight started after the Devils attempted to light a number of vehicles on fire that belonged to local university students in a nearby off campus housing project. Reports indicated the man appeared in a "ball of sunlight' as the Devils torched the first car. The battle was over in less than a minute according to onlookers. Strangely all cell phone and CCTV images are blurred as the apparent super powered individual is surround by an aura of light. Does Midway City have a new protector? More to follow.

New Details on Midway's Heroic EMT, Injured After Unusual Tourist District Dustup
==========================

New details emerged today out of MPD's 'Hawk Valley Precinct,' commonly known to locals as a hotspot of tourist activity as out-of-towners and Super Hero Aficionados alike flock to the toursit minded district. Home to the the Hawkman and Hawkwoman Museum and shopping district, this crown jewel of Midtown was rocked by an unusual outbreak of street violence, spilling out of the 'Fateful Tidings' magic shop. Details of the hold up by a still unidentified ski masked female, claiming to be a meta with an extraordinary personal armory, remain sparse. Precinct Chief, Captain Anthony Davidson, did not reveal the identity of the gunwoman but did confirm today that she is in Science Police custody. Six people were wounded in the foray and Midtown General reported one store employee was declared dead on arrival by local EMTs.

The story has caught local attention for the heroics displayed by one first-responder, identified by Midway General as Aaryn Gordon, who arrived and single-handedly pulled three wounded pedestrians to safety and stormed the shop to attempt life saving measures on the store employees. After attempting to wrestle an automatic weapon from the assailant, Gordon himself was attacked by an undisclosed meta energy and has been hospitalized for the last four days.

Hospital Director, Andrea Thompson told reporters that Paramedic Gordon has recovered fully from his wounds and awoke from a medically induced coma at 7:34pm Wednesday evening. Mr. Gordon will be further evaluated by doctors but is expected to fully recover with a release tomorrow afternoon.

(Sorry for the delay.)

Firefighting Superhero Squad Stops Inferno.

Move over, Justice League. There's a new superhero group in town. A fire broke out on the south end of Midway. An older building caught fire, causing all residents to evacuate.  All except the people living on the top most floor, who were trapped by the blaze.

The doomed residents were saved by 12 heroes, mostly female of varying abilities. Though only one was seen at a time. Interviews with the residents spoke of interesting, if not eccentric, people bursting into their units and leading them, teleporting them, or creating ways for them to escape.

One claimed to be rescued by a flame clad maiden who seemed to manipulate the flames around her. Another was saved by a foul mouthed Irish woman who broke the wall between their unit and an emergency staircase with her bare hands. Yet another was confronted by a woman in a black cloak and mask who broke a window and manipulated air around the victim to gently levitate them down to the ground below.

There was one report of a male hero whose body seemed to be made of metal. He manipulated his arm, elongated it and allowed the people of the residence he entered to slide down like a fireman's pole.

Strangely, each family described a different rescuer, which leaves police to believe that the group focused on one unit at a time, then left, leaving an opportunity for the next hero to save the day. The police have no leads as to the identity of any of these newcomers.

Upon interview, one fireman made a claim, stating "Maybe it's just one person... ya know, just changin' outfits or somethin'." As unlikely as that is, it still doesn't answer the question, who is this new group? And what will they do next?

"I cant believe I got laid off?" Hayden said to himself outside of the Union Rail Hall.

 Tucking both handsvinto his jeans, he made for the Midway Metro, from the Channelview yards over to Crosstown. The fastest way through Midway city, was the Tram Midway Metro that ran parallel with the Bi-State Tunnel. His disappointment came moments ago after a usual work report [sign in to see URL] to find that he had been put out of work temporarily in the railyard.

"Had to be [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] STUPID lamp?" He vexed to himself, accusing the owner of the yards while referring the object inside of his backpack. (Its soft green lumination hidden beneath the canvas fabric of the pack.) Though the attempt on his life after reporting the human trafficing boxcar more than likely played into his work eleviation. Had it not been for the mystical lamp he uncovered, he wouldve surely been hurt ...or worst? Using its mysterious ability to provide him a field of green shielding when concentrated on.

Ascending up the stairwell, he discovered the small dog eared stock card in his pocket:

Mt. Tobar Discoveries and Research center

Giving it a glance, he tossed it away. Along with the notion he [sign in to see URL] seeing if the facility knew anything about the meteoric origin of this odd Object he found in his back pack?


Atop the docking stop, the area was oddly barren of bystanders. Waiting on the dock, a creepy quiet hung overbthe evening. Snugging up his backpack shoulder straps he stood idle. Patoently waiting his Tram arrival.

Until...

"You cost the company alot, [sign in to see URL] to be a [sign in to see URL]? Tsk tsk tsk...." a deep but velvety voice purred behind him. As Hayden tirned startled by the abrupt female voice. He couldnt react fast enough before he felt her hard and weighted fist connect perfectly into his jaw. His conciousness disconnected before he fell down onto the Vibromagnetic track line. The tall woman looked down and over to where Hayden had fallen.

"There we go [sign in to see URL] lay there now. Hehehe she whispered.

(Ooc: Feel free to joinhere)

Re: □Midway Makings□


Without fanfare, there was a twist and swirl of light in the space and time between the tall woman and the unconscious form of Hayden Rice. It was like an unseen hand had reached out and plucked at reality, pinched it and twisted. The swirl of colors darkened until an orb of purple seemed to slide over the area where the tracks lie.

"This will not do," a deep voiced boomed. The purple circle of light turned and peeled back, revealing a bright yellow glow behind it and from within that glow appeared a man adorned in subdued hues of gold and blue. Threads of ethereal azure crisscrossed the man's body and throbbed as if in a rhythm of a heart beat. He hovered inches above the ground and slowly floated out from the yellow glow into the dock.

Behind him, Hayden's body rose as if he lifted by more unseen hands, clearly the work of the newly arrived stranger. Hayden's inert body lifted from the tracks and floated softly toward the raised dock where the woman and the new arrival stood.

The man turned toward the female assailant, ethereal blue slivers of light glowing behind a horned helm of gold. "You have no further purpose here beyond this pre-ordained moment. Leave here... or things will become ... ugly."

Re: □Midway Makings□


Michael Fry was late. Since his car had been torched he had to take the Metro and today he had woken up... in a strange house in the bed of a woman who was passed out in ecstasy. How he had gotten there he had no idea except he had spoken the "word' and so the "He" could get some honeyed mead. That was the last thing Michael could remember. Having to share his body was one thing, but his mind as well.. that was going to far.

At least he did not have a hang over as he ran up the steps to the tram platform. He looked like a mess, sneakers untied, shirt on backwards and not tucked [sign in to see URL] hair, that was another matter as well. It was almost two inches longer than it was the day before. Was this a side effect? As he was trying to straighten his appearance,he made the top of the platform and saw and heard the confrontation. Inside his mind he could feel a familiar stirring. << A woman and a fight... say the word boy .. release me from this confinement!>
