Shock

"You just like admiring my butt through the tights." she snorts playfully as she tosses one of the unconscious thugs aside.

Looking a round a second she counts out loud "Eeny meeny miney Moe!" she points at a door walks over and kicks it open hard before stepping to the side as a series of blaster shots ring out. Casually she smiles at Shock as she steps quickly out and lets fly with her Halo Boomerrang. The golden Chakram like weapon sings through the air and Shock hears a an impact which draws a wince just before the golden ring flies back unerringly to her hand.

When he investigates he sees an unconscious man in a suit and Angel giving him a cheeky grin as she walks in after him and begins to ransack the files.

Chris on the other hand after toeing the blaster away from the man sits and accesses the computer on the desk getting a little help from Tony back at the base in the process.

What he finds though throws him for a serious loop. When Angel looks over his shoulder she gives a low whistle of amazement.

"If this turns out to be true then we are in biiig trouble." she shakes her head as the pair continue to dig.

End this series of vignettes

The Viper Gambit

Viper Wars Finale

War!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again yall!
~Edwin Starr


As the next day dawns bright and shining. The group finds itself running through various moods from the upbeat--Hornet and Karen acting like a pair of teenagers--to the serious--Kris and Shock both of whom have seen things that leave them convinced that something big is coming, and confused--Dragonfyre for as he searched and searched he could find nothing that lead him any closer to Lexia. Even Ayas encouragement couldn't help as information seemed impossible to find or was blocked in ways even he couldn't touch.

All in all though the groups activites today are brought to a halt as Elena calls them together. "Guys we have a request from agent Coulson."

She waits till everyone sits down and she at least marginally has their attention before continuing.

"The Evidence that Shock discovered with Dark Angel a night jibes with evidence and with testimony from the Captured Serpent Society members who talked."

She touches a screen on the table which causes a wall mounted screen to light up and she uses her touch screen interface to move the data around.

"Agent Coulson is positive that Viper is planning something major that is going to coincide with the verdicts delivery today in the Trial." she pauses a moment and looks right at you.

"He wants you guys there to be ready in case Viper tries anything stupid."

"You say that like you think there's a chance they won't do something stupid." Chris didn't look away from the big wall-mounted display. "The big question is where? The courthouse seems to be the most likely location."

Kris Majax

Kris sat at the table with the far off look that suggested he wasn't listening.

Every item - even the staff - refused to sync with his aura. Every one.

It was like the Universe was trying to tell him something.

Kris blinks a few times as he seems to come back to the present. He notices everyone is looking at him.

"Chris and me on the roof, Kyle in the court room - shrunk down, and Tony on air patrol."

I wish Clover were still here to help out with aerial surveillance.

He looks at Chris and Kirk. "If either of you can whip up some kind of early warning system, that would be great."

He begins to sift through his mental inventory to see if he has anythign that will help as well.

Chris looked at Kris and shrugged. "Sure. But early warning against what? What have they got to bring this time? The Serpent Syndicate is out and we took down a bunch of their favorite hired guns too."

Kris looks back at Shock. Shaking his head, he just replies, "Whatever you can think of."

Everyone

Elena lets the discussion continue before she regains the floor.

"Unfortunately Phil didn't have any newer information." she pauses a moment. "His prime worry seems to be the courthouse but he gave me the impression that he thinks something else may happen. He put out a general warning call to multiple Aegis branches and to the Los Angeles based team the Avengers. Catherine sent the Honor Guard down to San Diego at his request."

"That's just leaves the whole of Bay City for us." she finishes "We need to be on hand for the verdict if were going to go, and be ready for anything."

Honor Guard just FYI is Oracle Incs sponsored superhero team they kind of go around the world doing good deeds and getting Oracle some good PR in the process.

Hornet and Shock have both met them before they became Protectors, and Kris knows their mage Arcannum as a colleague in the magical community. Tony has heard of all of them as they all have an active social media presense.

All heroes and good people.

"Is that all? Good thing there's four of us." Chris still felt fairly certain the courthouse would be the target. "How much time do we have?"

Kris stands up. "Lets get ready. We leave in [insert time]. I want to be at the courthouse and hour before the verdict to set up."

Dragonfyre
HP:1 Cnd: Grumpy Dragon


The past few days had been ones that tried Tony's patience. Searches that either ended in fruitless deadends or simply crashed his computer had the young dragon in the market for a new laptop. A much sturdier version considering his old one had been crushed when he slammed it down in a fit of rage.

Agent Coulson coming and giving him something new to do...other than his new obsession with finding Lexia or his Mother, was a Godsend.

As always, Tony was given flight duty. Which in truth suited him just fine. High in thee sky allowed him all the room he needed and also provided him with the ability to do a limited physical search. Who knows what one might see around a downtown courthouse. As he prepared to take flight, Tony asked what seemed like an already answered question, "What...again, are we really looking for? What signatures would we expect from Viper...I mean other than the serpent motif thingie?"

"Don't worry man." Chris clapped Tony on the shoulder. "It's VIPER. They're not going to be subtle."

Everyone

An hour later finds the group sans Clover--who was recruited for a space mission earlier in the week--surrounding the Bay City Courthouse in their own way. It is during this time as they wait that they cant help but be caught up in the excitement of the moment. VIPER has been a thorn in the side of many heroes over the decades, and this is one of the most serious blows struck against them.

Press and spectators protest both for and against the trial each side decrying the other as terrorist and unpatriotic etc both sides making points lost to the shouting as emotion and anger vie with calls for calm and rationality from government forces who are out in force.

The Heroes note several groups of Aegis forces and 4 of their Vanguard heavy Battle suits monitoring the crowds and the area. Security is understandably high given Vipers past record during trials of all out assaults on courthouses and law enforcement personnel. It is plain to see why Agent Coulson in the courtroom watching the preceding's ever cool under pressure shows only the slightest signs that he too is exceptionally nervous.

Kria Majax

Kris is positioned on the roof, or more accurately few inches off the roof and he floats in half lotus position. His staff is laid across his lap.

On each of the four corners is a set of wooden wind chimes, from the Emperor Xian's court. Standing motionless despite the breeze, these chimes will only make a noise in the event danger "blows in."

He has tuned out the nonsense going on down below. He actually wants Viper to go all in today... he wants them out of his town once and for all.
