Session Eleven: Victory Day

A few weeks ago Mayor Talbot’s campaign promise of creating a super hero team in Emerald City began to take form. The Vanguard is to be led by reality T.V. bad boy android Doctor Robot, who has spent more time in parties than fighting crime. Joining him is the South American luchadora vigilante Ultima Saborosa. On the day they both moved into Victory Tower, a state of the art superhero headquarters provided by tech millionaire Maximillian Mars, two more superhuman appeared and quickly were recruited into the ranks of the fledgling team. The first was Shota, a gladiator from a pan-dimensional dojo known as the Battle Nexus. The second was a reformed art thief named Adela who was capable of teleportation and invisibility. They first act as a team was to stop the notorious super criminal known as the Commander, who had taken control of LAX in an attempt to covertly steal an artifact known as the Sarcophagus of Aphosis. A.E.G.I.S. agent Barricuda Ritchman took custody of the man in the Commander armor while Doctor Robot took the armor, the alien crystal that powered it and the artifact back to his private lab for study. Three more cross-dimensional gladiators (Kiishigo the kung-fu dinosaur, Meron the energy being sumo wrestler, and Ringo the techno-organic tai-chi master) arrived to warn Shota that they had learned of a plot to subjugate thousands of parallel Earths by the immortal ZenKai masters of the Battle Nexus in preparation for the coming of the cosmic threat of Collaspsar the Devourer. Doctor Robot’s lab was then destroyed by the terrorist organization S.C.A.L.E. who stole the armor, the artifact and kidnapped Kiishigo. Shortly after Maximillian Mars was fired by the Mayor and replaced by the international spy agency The Chessmen. During this same time Adela was also secretly contacted by the mysterious ghost like Superunknown, who warned her about the Chamber conspiracy and led her to find ex-secret agent Somber Quinn and teenage reporter D.Q. Gray. Those two had been uncovering a villainous plot that corresponds to Vanguard’s official debut during Victory Day. The Vanguard tracked S.C.A.L.E. to a deep sea tech think tank community known as Sea Floor City run by tech billionaire Tox Colvera. S.C.A.L.E. was attempting to activate the Sarcophagus and would have done so if Doctor Robot hadn’t teleported it into a volcano. S.C.A.L.E. was turned over to Barricuda Ritchman and A.E.G.I.S. and the Vanguard turned their focus to uncovering the Chamber. And uncover they did… learning that Emerald City was secretly controlled by a cabal of supervillains as a safe haven and night club for criminals from many parallel worlds. The entire city is blanketed by a Mind Control Field maintained by a supervillain known as the Big Brain. The vanguard defeated Alexander Gaspar, Grandmaster of the Chessmen and the Big Brain only to learn that S.C.A.L.E. had taken over the A.E.G.I.S. flying saucer. The Vanguard attacked the saucer, liberating it from S.C.A.L.E., but not before they succeeded in finally activating the Sarcophagus of Aphosis… turning it into the towering robot Tellax. Now Tellax is headed to Emerald City to begin converting humanity into lizard people and only the Vanguard can stop it. The time has come. It is...
