It was an unearthly sight. From just below the snowy clouds, dozens of nGods sporting various attires emerged from a vividly blue rupture in space itself, their forms initially shadowed in the spacial distortion that temporarily connected the New God dimension to its progenitor realm. Carrying metal devices colored ivory and shaped like pillars, the streets below erupted in cries of shock and fear as the beings displayed their defiance of gravity by descending from the spacial rupture.
Though the rays of sun beaming down on them may have likened them to angels hovering above the masses, the large shadow their gathered forms cast upon the ground inspired more fear than hope.

His lips parted into a reassuring smile.
"I have faith in you all and your ability to complete this mission. By the end of this, many others will share gifts like our own. Begin!"
At his final utterance, the gods hovering around him sped off in opposite directions, seeking the harbors surrounding Manhattan...
