The Equalizers [CVnU Team]

No Caption Provided

Equalizer;

Noun

1 - A thing which has an equalizing effect.

2 - A weapon, especially a gun.

Forged with the intent to hunt down and purge the world of all that wish to harm it, owing to the fact that the superhero community has effectively failed in their fight for peace, the Equalizer's are the United States of America's solution, leading a war against the super-criminal scum that not only plague the United States of America, but the entire world. Villain after villain set back the world progressively for decades, yet all ignore this very apparent war; but that changes today. Granted a blank cheque by the President of the United States, Jean Quentin, the Equalizer's are tasked to formally eradicate the world of it's continued cancerous tumor of villains. Legalized at the highest political and legal level, the US congress had no qualms with putting through the bill which led to their further solidification, Julius knows that the US congress would never back down on a chance to make the US look great. The Equalizers are led by the world-renowned yet shadowy individual Julius Jones, The USA Secretary of Defense and ex Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Utilizing a five thousand strong special forces division of the US Military known as Joint-Task Force R.E.D, they are ready to set a new stage for Earth. One were villains are on the back foot, and heroes stand supreme.

Headquarters and associates

The Equalizer's are all cleared to enter most NATO bases under order of the President and NATO committee, allowing them seamless access to protect the world no matter where evil strikes up.

Official headquarters - The Triskelion

No Caption Provided

The official headquarters of The Equalizers lies within the rich metropolis of New York City. The enormous building is the fourth largest skyscraper in the entire city and possibly one of the most thought out and modernized in the world. A retrofitted CIA operational base with enough room and resources to literally accommodate an army of individuals. Each floor is laden with advanced tech and has it's use, no room left unused to facilitate unheard of efficiency within an official government organisation.

Consisting of 95 lavish floors, each one serves a particular focus and is accompanied by a dedicated team of staff, who are all subject to being screened at a federal level to ensure the secrecy and highly classified nature of what goes on within goes without a hitch. Some of the worlds most experienced and dedicated espionage agents work from within it's concrete walls. Anything which one would wish to seek would be found inside the facility.

Undeniably the most important division is Operation's Command

Operations Command
Operations Command

Operation's Command are directly responsible for aiding The Equalizer's in battle. Assessing threat's and acting as eyes and ears for all members, OP Command consists of fifty seven agents all tasked with keeping the team alive. Real-time medical advice, tactical advice, ground, air and sea support are available to be dispatched at a moments notice. The Command solely exists to aid the team in every way possible.

The United States Intelligence Headquarters

The Equalizers headquarters, also known as the Triskelion, functions as the ultimate headquarters of the United States Intelligence. Both overseeing the FBI and CIA, whilst also monitoring overarching activities taking place in the Pentagon and the NSA facilities. The Triskelion is the building where multi-agency talks are facilitated and is also where the Secretary of Defense resides.

Current members

Rules;

  • PM me to join the team.
  • Anyone on the team is allowed to use the Joint-Task Force soldiers in your posts as NPCs to do anything with.
  • Feel free to attack/infiltrate but anything large PM me.
  • PM me (or Pyrogram) with any questions.

The team is currently on a revolving roster - Julius does not care what the heroes do day-to-day and instead will only call heroes (even those who are not team members) to join when required and unite them under the banner of Equalizer.

"What a f?cking shiny dump this is." Puzzler stepped out of the elevator, lighting up a fresh smoke. He hated places like this, all shiny and white washed. Mind you, these were the thoughts of a man that just spent a few years living in basically a cave. He could see it now, his "team mates" all flashy and garbed in uniforms. "God, there's going to be a kid on this team, isn't there? Callin' it right now." The TK titan floated his luggage into his personal quarters, chucking them on the bed without a care.

"I am for sure not meeting these blokes without being at least a little blitzed.." Puzzler shuffled through his "fun bag" filled with all sorts of exotic chems. "Hmm... Poppers seem about right." He mumbled with a grin, pulling out a small vial and unscrewing the cap. Just a sharp inhale through both nostrils was all it took for Puzzler's eyes to widen immensely. "Yep yep! That'll do."

Once "situated", Puzzler started roaming the tower.

I had to swing all the way to the other side to find the bridge. Then I had to jump to bridge since there isn't anything connetcing the two shattered ends where I can shoot a web. It was that or swimming in crap. THEN, I had to run two miles to find a bus station in the middle of nowhere. I had a student bus pass so it was cheap. The least the Secretary of Douchery could have done was given me a ride there. I mean, he called me and it's not like he doesn't know that it's difficult to leave Gothic. I have a feeling he was just being a jerk.

New York reminds me of Gothic. If Gothic didn't smell terrible, had any tall buildings standing, and wasn't completly bankrupt. I don't get how people can complain about this place smelling bad. It's nowhere near as polluted as Gothic.

It took me a good ten minutes to find the building with the GPS on my phone. Once I saw the building, I turned it off since it was kind of obvious at that point. I wasn't sure where to enter at first. I mean, I can't just walk through the front door. But then I realized "Hey! This is a super-hero team. They have an enrtance in the ceiling" and they did.

Once he entered the elevator, he pushed a button to one of the higher levels. Coincidently, another man entered with him, he wore one of the oddest slash coolest glasses he had ever seen and had tatoos all over his body. Kind of scary.

"Umm....You wouldn't happen to know where the superhero meeting is right?" Damian let out an unconftable chuckle.

@frank_scaletta: Also team's aren't all fighting. It's a chance to develop your character along with your teammates, some of the most fun I've ever had is character building. Just let things flow and don't plan it. Pick a random team member and PM them to interact or something, the best interactions are sometimes organic.

@superior_nobody:

Puzzler slowly looked over at the brightly dressed stranger, a frown could be seen through the veil of cigarette smoke. "F?ck sakes, every team has a plucky one don't they?" He snarled, looking straight ahead and hoping there weren't many floors left. "I don't know where the stupid meeting is, or care. I joined this team to f?ck people up and help the people we are currently towering over. Not to jerk each other off in a super friends meeting." Puzzler sighed with nicotine, realizing how riled up he had gotten. The promise. "Considering I have nothing better to do though... I'd bet it's in their "war room" like all these hero team tossers have."

Sam Washington sat in the back of a large helicopter currently answering to Army Two, the callsign for any US Army vehicle carrying the vice president. It touched down on the roof of the Triskelion, and his escort stepped out, checking for explosives and other trap. "Gentlemen, please. I can handle myself." They respectfully stepped aside and he walked into the building. He briskly made for the center of the building, his attaché bringing his bags to a room he would use when trying at the base. Sitting down, he awaited the rest of the team, specifically Secretary Jones, who he needed to speak with urgently.
