Turning his head to Samson Luke would give him a once over and a slight shrug of his shoulders at his boss. "Hmm. Alright." Though he noticed Caitlin's minuscule response to what he said he didn't acknowledge her any more than a simple smirk and a slight laugh. Luke wasn't here to make friends, he was there to be the best and to help Samson shuffle the era of superheroes into the next light.

True to his word he would read through Kate and Caitlin's mind and gather knowledge on the two of them.

The Manhunter Of Mars would nod to Samson and step out of the building and blast to the location of the two heroes and with the gracefulness of an angel Luke would drift down towards the duo heroines with a smile on his face as he became the hero, he knew himself to be.

"Hello ladies. Are you ready to get this done?" Then turning to Caitlin he would hold his hand out to her. "What do you suggest we do first?"

"I...I don't know if my stomach can take that again. You go on ahead, I'll be okay here."

Jai's trusting self would nod at Sarah fully trusting her. "Alright, if you need me or if she comes back just yell. I'll come running." Turning to the side he would nod at her and orange electricity flickered off of his form and he'd turn back to Sarah one more time. "I need to go and help them. They need me."

Then with a turn of his heel and a blast of wind the Son of the Former Fastest Man Alive blasted into the distance shooting towards Superion and Scoundrel. But then the young speedster halted in his steps when he heard:

All of you Stop!”

What shocked Jai was that every man, in the near vicinity of Chastity froze like a block of ice. Not knowing what was going on Jai would twist on the back of his heel and dart out of site trying to plan the best course of action. Then deciding that perhaps stealth was the best choice Jai would blur out of sight and travel back by several feet. If this woman was really mind controlling men by voice then Jai would have fallen under her spell. So he crossed that out, It must be something else. Which means that Jai has a chance as long as he moves quick.

Blasting out from his cover Jai shoots faster than a bullet out in the crisp clean air. His feet scraped up the dirt and heated the ground to unbearable levels. He made a beeline straight for Chastity determined to put a stop to whatever she had planned. But as soon as he get's within breathing range he freezes uncontrollably and stands completely still. But he could already feel his body resisting the pheromones that attempted to corrupt his body and turn it against him. He breathed in deeply and looked at Superion and Scoundrel and mouthed. 16 seconds, keep her distracted for 16 seconds. He wondered what they were gonna do and if the lady in front of him would attempt to kill him.

Caitlin pushes a button to keep the line open for Samson to say something if he desires it, but for now she is suddenly face to face with Prime himself. The royal blue of his costume contrasts very nicely with the sky. The blood red of his cape, S-shield, belt and boots make his costume flow nicely together in a nice color scheme that is pleasing to the eye. Primary colors. Even yellow is there.

A warm hand is extended, which Caitlin takes. She notes that it feels warm. Could it be the power that is coursing through Prime's body like a million exploding suns? Only the man himself can answer. But as Caitlin listens to his question, she offers a smile to the vaunted Manhunter of Mars. "Kate needs a costume, we are going to help her put one together." That is the first order of business.

With that said, Caitlin turns to Kate and offers to take the woman's hands in her own in friendship much as Samson himself did when they first met, "As my boss said, let's swing by Selebrity's HQ and get you a costume. With Prime's speed, your designer capabilities and my input, we'll have it done in no time. Then we all can go investigate this matter for both Selebrity and Samson. Sound good to you?"

And should both Prime and Kate say yes, then she offers to provide a ride there for Kate as she doesn't know if the woman can fly. She knows Prime can so he can go on his own.

@scoundrel@jai_walker

Sarah nods, smiling with the air of a rebel and not the sunny disposition she's known for as Keira Hawke. In her new identity, she's a different person from the CEO of Hawke Industries. As soon as Jai leaves, running off to save the world, Dark Rain rises after having played possum. Smiling, brushing herself off, she smirks, "I thought he'd never leave."

To Sarah's mind, Dark Rain is not a threat but a friend. Although she is a little confused as to why her friend is 'kidnapping her', she trusts her. Exactly what the Scoundrel feared! As Dark Rain walks over to Sarah, the Native American extends a hand out to the former Paragon, "Shall we?"

Sarah takes the hand, letting her friend fly both of them away, "Of course. Let's go." And as Dark Rain flies Sarah away to enact the next phase in her plan, a sinister smile plays across her lips.

Meanwhile...

Superion didn't anticipate this much trouble, but there is a lot of things he didn't take into account. Even the best layed plans can go off the rails and this one certainly did on both sides. Worse, Chastity reveals her ultimate power and it's over men themselves. To the Man of Steel's enhanced senses, he's likely one of the first to smell the woman's pheromones first. Every muscle fiber that can shatter mountains freezes up when he hears the command to stop. Lucas is aware of everything, but his mind suddenly fogs over as his will is sapped as it shrivels away into nothing. All desires turn to Chastity as Superion obeys her command.

The Man of Steel tries to resist, but to a man with enhanced senses, he is perhaps even more vulnerable than the average man. Unable to move, the Man of Tomorrow can only hope Conrad has some way to resist Chastity's power and free them all. Otherwise, who knows what Chastity plans to do.

With but a simple kiss from her lips, Chastity let loose a wave of pheromones that swept out across the battlefield. Like a red fog coming in off the coast, it crept its way in, until every man standing in its wake, inhaled it deeply, thus falling under her spell. Then within seconds the alluring pheromones flowed through their systems, leaving them completely under her control. But as luck favors the foolish, and especially scoundrels, Conrad’s helmet doubled as a gas mask. Therefore as the mist flowed around him as well as the others, he alone was immune. Unfortunately, at this point Conrad was unaware of the effect of Chasity’s pheromones, other than it was not a good thing, but at the moment he heard her say “All of you Stop!” that he began to worry. Immediately, everyone in his sight froze in place, even the four armed mutant Beatdown, who now stood as a statue. The only one still moving at this point was Chastity, and from the devilish look on her face, things were about to get worse. Suddenly a flash of light flickered before him, followed by a short gust of wind, and before he new it, Jai the young speedster had arrived ready and eager to help. Then in the most WTF moments he zipped away only to return in less than a second. Were it not for Conrad’s good hearted nature, he might of assumed the speedster was untrustworthy, but the fact was the kid was inexperienced, or at least hoping to take his cues from him, and more importantly, Superion!

But what ever the real reason was, Jai was there to help, and despite being outnumbered and facing an unknown adversary, he was not backing down. Unfortunately for him, he too was not immune to the allure of the pheromones, only able to over come the effects, quicker. Therefore at the moment he felt his mind slipping, he mouthed the words “16 seconds, keep her distracted for 16 seconds!” to both the Scoundrel and Superion. Unfortunately, while all this was going on, Chastity decided to flex her proverbial muscle, and as such she pointed towards the three remaining heroes, and with a cruel sadistic tone shouted to the heavens, “Kill Them All!” Immediately, every male mutant around eye’s glowed with a reddish tent, though vague and without any sign of intelligence and to make it worse, as Conrad turned around to see his attackers, he couldn’t help but notice the same cold look in Superion’s eyes! Realizing quickly, that the cold hard truth was that Superion was now under her control, Conrad could only fear the worst and with a slight tremble in his voice, looked back between Lucas and Jai, only to inform the young speedster, “Kid, whatever it is you have planned, I hope you can do it in ten!” Then as he looked back to Superion possibly looking ready to kill, Conrad quickly rephrased his statement to, “Or maybe even,five!?!?

No Caption Provided

With everything now resting on the Scoundrels shoulders, Conrad moved into action, even before thinking things through. Beginning with a thought, he created a small but compact invisible sphere, no bigger than a common base ball and with the wave of his hand, sent it flying towards Chastity’s head, at a speed that would rival a professional league baseball pitcher. As it was unseen there was no way for Chastity to see it coming other than his wave, which could easily be passed off as a sign of disrespect towards her. Either way his attempt was simply to knock her out and leave her unconscious, eliminating one of the many threats, thus giving him an advantage in dealing with the rest. Ignoring the outcome of his so called attack, he abruptly turned to deal with the greatest threat, a mind controlled Superion, ordered to kill! Wasting no time, Conrad phased the density of his body away until he was no more than a ghost and with all the powers that went with it, he flew towards the hero in the hopes of possessing him. In one last ‘Hail Mary’ moment, everything rested on his unique power skill and the huge assumption that he could control the hero’s mind long enough to save him!

If everything went according to plan, Conrad would enter Superion’s consciousness at the moment his ethereal form would invade Superion’s space. At that exact moment Conrad and he would be as one. Much like living in a dream state, Conrad could not only see through the heroes eyes, but do and be, anything the hero could do. Unfortunately, for the Scoundrel he was now fighting two subconsciousness for control. On one hand he was up against a mind altering pheromone that allured and enticed him, and on the other hand, Superion’s own mind was fighting for control with an undeniable amount of will power. Either way, Conrad was in for the fight of his life. With what little time he had left, he would tapped into his overly hyper sensitive self awareness and reached out to feel all that he could feel. Again if everything was going according to plan, with but a thought, he would feel Superion’s heart beating under his massive chest. He could even feel his lungs expanding in and out. But more importantly he could feel the pheromones coursing throughout his blood stream. Then and only then would he use his own special powers to reduce the density of the pheromones into nothingness, in the hope of saving one of his closest friends.

But as nothing ever goes according to plan there were hundreds of things that could go wrong. Perhaps Conrad acted to slowly, or Chasity had another plan in motion, or maybe even Dark Rain returned with reinforcements. Either way Conrad’s first impulse was to save Lucas before he could do harm. If lucky enough to do so, the psychological stress against him would be enough to forcibly thrust him out of Superion’s body and toss him to the floor. Then fully drained to the point of exhaustion, he would fight hard against the fatigue and find the strength to say, “go, help the kid and watch your @ss,” then quite possibly pass out unless something else were to happen or interfere. But by this point, it would be most likely that the remaining male mutants outside the bar would be following Chastity’s last command, “Kill Them All!” From the remaining few one was an abundantly tall, blue skinned, ice manipulator that showed great interest in Jai, as well as an average looking male in a tattered jeans, that could produce a sonic scream. As for Superion, again assuming he was freed from Chastity’s pheromones, the last remaining four mutants attacked together, hitting Superion from all sides. From the four, one was a short man with the power to create sink holes, as another average man morphed into a man wolf hybrid. The third was a lizard like being, that strategically placed himself behind Superion, with the power to project an acidic vomit. The last of course was Throg, who stood face to face with the champion, already taunting him, “Lets see what you can do, when I’m ready for you, punk!” after which his third eye glowed brighter and brighter, shortly afterwards a wormhole opened up in it, that could quite possibly suck Superion into another dimension!

Jai's body was completely frozen, his mind was fighting the pheromones as much as his body was and he was screaming internally. He was confident that he would have enough time to let the chemicals in the gas wear off in his body as he just waited. But then Chasity's voice rang out and his blood ran cold.

Kill Them All!

The young speedsters' eyes would widen and he would grumble as much as he could from his frozen limbs. Unless he did something now, it would soon be game over for him. Because when he looked over at Superion...

He was under her control.

Funk...

This wasn't written in the timeline....Things had gone off course and now it was up to Jai to help set things straight the way it was meant to be.

Conrad had also started panicking which was told by the:

“Kid, whatever it is you have planned, I hope you can do it in ten!”

Ok Jai thought I can work with ten.

Or maybe even,five!?!?”

No Caption Provided

Come. ON JAI THINK! Turning the cogs in his head he saw his impending doom drawing closer, Jai closed his eyes and took a deep breath as he started to shake at superspeeds. But not out of fear. By turning completely intangible Velocity shot the fumes and pheromones out of his system and he'd breathe deeply.

No Caption Provided

Shifting on his heel to face the ice manipulator Jai would dash forwards with an attempt to pin him to the nearby wall to which he would begin delivering blow after blow each one fired at insane crippling speeds.

If this worked at eliminating his icy foe Jairus would walk up to Superion and nod to him if the mighty hero was freed from the mind control. "I think we can take him. And his ugly buddies. What do you think?"

He began walking forwards with lightning flickering off his very form.

@jai_walker: @scoundrel:

"Kill them all!"

No Caption Provided

Against his will, Superion begins to move towards Conrad with the purpose of a killer. Eyes glowing a menacing red like miniature twin stars shining with such brightness that his eyes cannot be looked at directly lest one be temporarily blinded. A vein pops in the Man of Steel's neck as he tries to resist this command, exercising such willpower as to shake the very heavens if it were possible.

Superion only succeeds in resisting just enough as to make his movements slow and sluggish. He's by no means moving as slow as molasses on a cold winter day but he's slower than he usually is. This allows time for Conrad to pull his next move and successfully possess the Man of Tomorrow. At first, Superion begins to fight the intrusion but then he recalls that his friend once pulled this trick on Dark Rain once before near the beginning of this little adventure.

Brilliant move, Conrad. Superion thinks within his own mind. It's a thought that he knows Conrad will hear. Superion begins to stop resisting him and let his friend work his power and he does, completely eliminating the pheromones from the Man of Steel's system before being ejected out of him like a cannon ball.

Suitably freed and his mind now his own, Superion looks at Jai and sees that the man is a conduit of the Speed Force. The Man of Steel can actually see the energy flowing off of him with sparks of yellow and orange lightning. To his enhanced senses, Jai is like a light bulb shining bright, pushing away the darkness. It was hard to tell where the Speed Force began and ended with Jai. It's almost like looking at Flash Lightning or Zephyr. Lucas wonders if the two are related.

At the question, Superion nods adding a quarky smile, "If your who I think you are, then I know we can take them, Jai." If anything, the Man of Steel believes in people's ability to do the remarkable. He holds other heroes to a very high standard but also well aware they are people who are just as flawed as he is. But with inspiration, when someone puts their mind to a task, anything is possible. It is with this in mind that Superion knows that between him, Conrad and Jai, they can win because each hero does the impossible every day.

Hopefully Jai remembers that Throg can absorb kinetic energy that physical attacks won't work against him.

No more words are said as Superion finds himself under attack. A sonic scream pierces the air as the Man of Steel's eardrums almost burst as he covers his ears. A sink hole opens up beneath the Man of Steel's feet, causing him to fall into it. Next comes a spray of acid in an attempt to melt the man. Then before Superion can react, he feels the pull of a dimensional doorway opened by Throg and it looks like the Man of Tomorrow might be sucked in when his body is lifted up and out of the sink hole and towards the portal opening.

At the last second, Superion recovers stopping his backwards momentum and using his super-speed to try and grab Throg and throw him into the very dimension he tried sending Superion into. All in the literal blink of an eye and hopefully before Throg can even react to it. If successful, Superion then cups the mouth of the one who has the sonic scream to stop him from doing it again before tapping him the head and knocking him out.

The Lizard being who can project acid vomit, the Werewolf and Chastity were the only ones left, the latter of which is showing obvious fear as she begins to try and retreat. The Werewolf like creature begins descending down upon Jai with surprising speed as it growls menacingly as it looks to shred the speedster apart like so much paper mache. The lizard being throws up the acidic vomit towards Conrad and if he dodges then it uses it's lizard like strength to try to hit him with a force like a ton of bricks.

Superion is confident that his friends can handle those killers so he uses his super-speed to move directly in front of the fleeing Chastity. He strips off the beard, the clothes and everything else to finally reveal himself as none other than Superion. Even though Chastity smirks, there is fear in those eyes. He tries again to use her pheromones to control the hero, but this time Superion is ready for it and blows away the gaseous substance with a quick burst of his super breath before grabbing Chastity by her shirt collar to bring her face to face with him and look her in the eye, "So rough! I love that in a man." Chastity says, batting her eyelashes.

Superion says nothing, only giving Chastity a brief stare down before tapping her on the head and knocking her out cold before laying her unconscious form down on the ground. Then he turns his head to see how his friends are doing against the remaining henchmen.

Conrad’s body was weak, as his mental state was fragile. Playing the part of a ghost was always stressful and even more so as he went up against two consciousness. Now laying on the ground in a prone manner, he was all but dead to the world, taking every last second to recuperate. With his eyes shut and his breathing shallow, the last thing he remembered was trying to dissolve the pheromones from his friends body, followed by a moment of black just before being booted out. Immediately, a wave of fear over came him, as he feared the worst, picturing a blood crazed Superion going on a killing spree. But despite the overwhelming tragic of his visions, there was nothing he could do at this moment other than recite the Lord’s prayer and hope for the best! But as he laid there motionless, useless to the team, he started remembering an odd thought he felt just before being thrust out of Superion’s body, “Brilliant move, Conrad!” Much like a battle cry, these few but powerful words, kept repeating over and over in his head, and in his friends voice, giving him that glimmer of hope to fight on. In one dramatic moment of will power, Conrad clinched his fist tight, grabbing a handful of the dirt he was laying on and whispered ever so silently, “yeah, yeah it was!” as he opened his eyes wide and shot up in a fast and abrupt manner!

Still in a weakened state, he took an offensive stance, despite the fact he could barely keep his hands up. It was all a farce but with the best intentions. But as he looked out across the battlefield, taking it all in, he was relieved to find his friend alive and in full control of his actions. Even better Superion was in the middle of taking out the mutants, along with the young, but impressive speedster, even rallying him with a noble, "If your who I think you are, then I know we can take them, Jai." Immediately, Conrad let out a sigh of relief, even going so far as to say, “Go get him guys,” as he watched in awe as two of the greatest heroes he ever saw, cleaning house in a efficient manner. But just as he was about to step back and let them handle their business, he heard a slithering sound growing ever closer. With the use of his Super Scoundrel Sense, he spun around just in time to see a large seven foot tall lizard closing in on him, with it’s jaw unhinged and making a hissing sound. Then just as it stood over him, it produce an acidic spray that rained down on the Scoundrel like a waterfall! Immediately, Conrad produced a thin but sturdy invisible shield between them, taking the brunt of the attack, with Conrad smirking from the other side, “You missed!” But just as the acidic spray dripped down off the shield to the ground, the Scoundrel was already lowering it in order to make his next counter attack!

No Caption Provided

Unfortunately, for the Scoundrel, the Lizard man known as ‘Spit-Take’ was already in motion, swinging it’s rock like tail around, hoping to crash into Conrad’s midsection and possibly even breaking his spine in two. However, in response, Conrad pulled forth his trusty quarter staff from his side, and held it before him. As the two collided Spit-Take’s tail hit like a base ball bat, coming in a blur, only to stop when it hit the staff, leaving the Scoundrel unharmed. However, from the mere force of the attack, Conrad’s footing fell back a yard as his feet scraped against the dirt, leaving behind two minute trails. Always the optimist, he was more than ready to retaliate and as such he began by slamming one end of his staff into the ground. Then in order to make his attack more officiant, not only did he down load an agility program through his head, but increased his density just enough to give his kick some sting. With both hands gripping his staff tight, he kicked off from the ground, bending and twisting his body, in order to be leading forward with both feet. Then as planned, he used his staff like a pole vaulter launching both of his size eleven boots deep into Spit Take’s mid section, knocking the wind out of him and leaving him unconscious lying on the ground.

Quickly regaining his composure, it appeared that most of the mutant were beaten or on the edge of being defeated. Either way, Conrad arrived just in time to watch Superion questioning of all people, Chastity! As always she was provocative, even taunting the hero with a sly "So rough! I love that in a man.” But like the hero Superion was, he had no time to waste and by no means was he going to play her game, therefore with the simplest of touches, he tapped her on the head, knocking her out cold before laying her unconscious form down on the ground. But just as he turned around to see how his friends are doing, Conrad was two seconds to late to shouting, “No Wait! Don’t do it! We need her alert for questioning!”For the next few minutes many things could occur, from more deep and delving conversation to more needless combat. But no matter what transpired, Conrad would end with a “Guys I think we’re in more trouble!” With everybody’s full attention, he points towards the city, where a dark menacing storm cloud, ten times larger than a world record, hung over the sky line crackling with thunder and lighting. Even from a distance, the heroes could feel the dramatic drop in temperature, as if the storm was giving a forewarning of things to come. Either way, it was clear the storm was not normal and as Dark Rain was a weather manipulator, it fell upon the heroes to do something about it!

Alright then. Time to get to work Jai.

From the shadows comes a wolf, yet he's no ordinary predator. He moves with motion to human for any animal, staring with almost human eyes. The only sound to Jai is his breathing, his flaring nostrils as he takes in the young speedsters scent. He curls up his gums to reveal yellow stained teeth and then lets out a low rumbling growl. Jai freezes up as he already knows her fate, in seconds his throat will be ripped out, his flesh consumed, blood staining the a pale green grass around them.

No Caption Provided

But then Jai remembers that he's not helpless, he's not some regular kid with superpowers, he's a speedster a speedster with potential according to everyone around him and while he doubted himeself sometimes he would never ever give up when others needed him, that was a promise he had made his father and his mother. On his bent knee he would rise and breathe deep and his mind would clear.

No Caption Provided

"It's go time." He told himself. With a surge of motion the Fastest Boy Alive would spring forward -his hips calves cracking the very ground- and though the wolf had surprising speed that startled even Jai for a moment he quickly recovered and dodged a slice to his calf that slightly tore open his skin.

Grabbing a mace from one of the fallen badies from before Jai would begin unleashing pure hell on the beast in front of him, with blows so quick that Jai became a blur of motion seeming to appear in many places at once. He wasn't striking as hard as he could due to the fact that he could completely destroy the wolf if needed, he hit lightly but quickly allowing his blows to accumulate. Until eventually he wolf just fell down unconscious.

Jai would grin breathlessly and a toothy grin would envelop his face. Until Conrad spoke up as the night began growing darker.

Guys I think we’re in more trouble!

Whoah.
Whoah.

"Whoah....That would make even Stormbreaker proud."

The Crisis Harbinger would clench his teeth and look at Superion. "What's the plan? We need to wrap this up and help Kiera."

@ultra-woman: @supreme_sapien: I'm gonna just make up a reason for why Kate isn't joining us. If you have any problems I'll edit I guess, but I think a direct approach would be the best so we can get this going.

Then we all can go investigate this matter for both Selebrity and Samson. Sound good to you?"

Luke's head would shake as he looks at Caitlin and Kate with a furrowed eyebrow, his objection rising like the lava in a volcano. "She's new which I was aware of, but she's so new she's not even equipped for this trip? It would be unwise for us to deviate from our goal for such a small reason, let Samson introduce her some other time, in some other way. We need to get this done, let her sit this one out."

Luke's words would be blunt and to the point. If any objections were made The Manhunter Of Mars would shake his head deeply and look at Caitlin, "We have not the time, let us go." Leaping into the sky Luke would burst away from the scene until he reached the objective point, and landing he would wait for Caitlin. "Well commander, what do you think we should start at?"
