"Hello men and women of the news. While I am sure all of you in this room and at home know who I am, I'd like to introduce myself anyway. I am the Commander, and for the last 10 years I've been leading the Defenders in defense of your city. And I am tired. I'm tired of law enforcements going after solo heroes like the Red Scorpion, claiming that she is a vigilante in league with criminal orginization, despite the fact she has never killed and had done her best to put criminals behind bars. I'm tired of the fact that when the Iron Knight fought Dr. Destruction, that the citizens would accuse our hero of needless damage to his surroundings as opposed to thanking him for the lives he saved. I'm tired of being told that we should exclude those who gained powers from the Terminus, despite the fact they now use those powers to protect this city. I'm tired of being told I should seek out minorities to join our team, that we should hire based on race or gender or creed as opposed to seeking out those who would put their life on the line for this city. But mainly I'm just tired. Therefore, it is with reluctance that I am order the dissolution of the Defenders. Furthermore, I am stepping down as a hero. You don't like the job we're doing, then good luck without us."
65. Heroes Strike
Several major heroes, upset by the fact that they are repeatedly taken for granted have decided to go on strike. As one major hero after another decides to 'take a break from protecting those who despise and abuse us', others similarly follow suit. Do the players do so as well? Do they try to keep up with the growing crime wave alone? How do other heroes react to them moving against the strike? Can they get city officials to ease up and allow the heroes to do their jobs?
Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil, have no fun.
