  4. "Oh I'm pretty tough. Just there were a lot of those jerks. I-I just need some time to heal on my own." It was a lie. One that Courtney thought seemed pretty apparent given just how nervous she sounded even to her own ears. Not helping was the fact that she was blatantly covering her right arm from sight. It had taken a large amount of damage from the fight, so much so that part of endoskeleton was exposed, if only slightly. Bad liar or not, Courtney was pretty sure that Justice wouldn't leap to the conclusion that she was android in disguise. She could keep her secret. But did she want to? Justice had just saved and her invited into her super-cool headquarters. That required a level of trust that to Courtney seemed like a real good sign that the armored heroine would be understanding. Moreover... Courtney really did want someone who knew about her secret beyond her mother. She made a decision. "Ok. Maybe I'm more than tough. I'm actually well..." She let go of her arm showing that past the torn flesh and the obvious metal and circuitry that laid under it. "I'm an android." Ultra Girl made a brittle smile. "Sorry to put that shocker out on our first teamup. I tend to overshare, I guess."
  5. Arrow deftly moved into the museum without a hitch as expected, heading towards the Ancient Greece exhibit. Shockingly, the other managed to avoid tripping an alarm. Olivia was the verge of kind-of-maybe giving them compliment for that when Luke asked his question. The archer had virtual smorgasbord of gadgets in her utility belt but nothing near powerful enough like an EMT that could knockout all the surveillance equipment in a museum as well-protected and monitored Hunter's. Usually, in her experience with Bowman it was always better to just not be caught on camera or trip an alarm at all. Easy enough for her and her mentor but given who she was currently working with... With a huff she looked towards the admittedly more technological-savvy Nevermore for a solution. "Some of us aren't going keep getting lucky and avoid all the cameras and alarms in here," she said matter-of-factly, somehow finding the will not to point fingers at that moment. "Which means we probably have two options. Either we head to security room and try to shut things down manually. Or we use some kind of limited range EMT to shut it all down for us. Got an alternatives?"

  7. Olivia couldn't help but roll her eyes as Outrider stated the obvious. Pinching the bridge of her nose, she said, "Yes, actually investigating whether there's even an issue here would be super great." Her tone made it clear that she wasn't exactly impressed by what little evidence the group had gathered so far. Even so, she didn't plan on abandoning them. Not yet anyway. "Ok, how about we do this? Murine and Shield's band of sour losers are staking out Hunter Museum in case a villain hits it, yes? Well, assuming that's actually true, how about set up a lookout of our own." Pulling out a device from her utility belt, Arrow only had to push a few buttons to display a 3D holographic blueprint of the museum she had already saved on it. "If he isn't a total idiot than there's several decent places that could be scoping the museum from without alerting security. We can hit them all to see if he's there and stealthily monitor him and his groupies once we do. If find that he's up to something than we thrash them again. And in the very slim chance that are on the up-and-up we can bail them out if there's trouble." She looked up from the display to the others to see if any of them had enough of a attention span to listen. "Does that sound to you all?"

  9. Ultra Girl's optics nearly lit up as she saw Justice form a portal seemingly out of thin air. "How did you do that!? Did you open some kind space-time tear or is just a fold in space that only appears like a tear to the eye? No wait! Is it a sidereal dimension? Are we really transitioning to another reality or just entering a different wave-length frequency on this one? Or maybe..." She had nearly a dozen other questions pop in her mind as well but given where they were and just how bad she was hurting Courtney opted to save them for later. "Sorry again. I kind of get carried away on when I see new things. You can explain it all later. Or not! I know some people can be secrety about their tech, which is fine by me." Feeling rather awkward now after that whole anxious spiel, Courtney promptly went through into Justice's portal.
  10. Arrow IV Olivia was in the middle of thoroughly (and surprisingly patiently) explaining to one of her regrettably denser friends why their favorite influencer was a grifter hocking a crap product that would turn her green when her phone started to blow up. A cursory look at the messages from Luke and Charlie made her scrunched up her nose as if she had just messed something foul. "Sorry K. I have to take this. We'll finish this chit-chat later. Try not to do or buy anything stupid while I'm gone, ok." Leaving the hall she was in and going into an empty class room, Olivia gave the texts another look as she thought of how to react to the invite. Several less than flattering or helpful words and phrases immediately came to her mind, but she decided to begrudgingly hold her venom. At least for now. After the whole incident with Shield's embarrassing New Freedom League she had started to develop something of a professional respect for Charlie and his band of friends. Said respect was small admittedly, but it was more than she had for the most of the students of Claremont. With that being the case she finally deighed to text the group chat back . You do all know that Summers is going to wipe out a scourge if she finds out we went after that idiot Shields again, yes? She paused, wondering is she should leave it that and go back to rescuing Karen from her own bad decisions. She sighed. This better be worth my time or I'm ratting the whole of you out.

Catchphrase: Theme: Alternate Identity: Birthplace: Residence: Claremont Academy Dorms Base of Operations: Claremont Academy Occupation: Affiliations: Family: Description: Age: 16 by 2022 (DoB: 2006, June 6) Gender: Ethnicity: Height: 0'0" Weight: 0 lbs.

  12. Arrow didn't even deign to give Stinger the luxury of a wordy response. The glorified cowgirl cosplayer wasn't worth it and Olivia wasn't in the mood to trade barbs with someone who's backside had already been decidedly kicked and thoroughly trounced. Of course, that didn't mean she wouldn't send a very rude gesture Stinger's way before turning her attention back to Chump. Olivia wasn't exactly convinced that Chump of all people would be a good morality coach for Shields, let alone an effective and consistent one. He was to much of a pushover despite just how physically strong he was and Olivia would have found it all amusingly ironic if not for the fact that she had gotten caught up in the sad little play. She expressed that frustration pretty strongly in the next few words. "Well for your sake I hope Summer's agrees with Nightscale over here because even if we deign to ask her to cut you plebs some slack she's still going to be one to decide your fate," she said coolly, not exactly sympathetic to Chump's plight but not gleeful about it either. "Honestly, if you really were so ignorant that you couldn't tell that Shields was ostracizing this whole fiasco than maybe she might just take pity on you all and go a bit easy."
  13. Ultra Girl was able to give Justice a thin smile even as her systems were still only just barely chugging along. "Well, you found me, and at a great time too!" She tried to laugh, but one of her systems decided to fail right then and there leaving her coughing for a bit. “Sorry. Not exactly at my best right now, but thanks for the save,” she says after mentally activating a subroutine to deal with the technical failure. Courtney didn’t really know much about the other heroes in Emerald City outside of what most people knew. The same was true of Justice but given that the armored heroine just saved her life Courtney figured that she was the real deal when it came to heroism. Moreso than the Ultio suits at the very least. “So, you were looking for me? Why? I’m kind of new at all of…” she waved a hand at the unconscious bodies of all the Ultio suits, “This. What could I help you with?”
  14. Courtney made a sigh of relief as she saw Justice take out Ultio Red. She didn’t have to on account of being an android, but all the same she felt relieved to see that vengeful jerk taken out of the fight. Though severely damaged her optic sensors were still functioning and showed that even with Red defeated their were still two other Ultio’s left to deal with. Even with only the two to deal with Ultra Girl didn’t feel especially confident in surviving clashing with them even with a new friend to back her up. So she wanted to try diplomacy. Again. Hopefully the third time truly was the charm. She looked towards the remaining with determined eyes. “Your leader is down and out and so is most of the rest of your posse. How about we all take that as a sign and just end this disaster right now ok.”
  15. Neato! IC will come once I get back from work.
  16. A Diplomacy check to see if the last two Ultio-Suits are going to lay down their arms and chill: 14. Not great! I'm give it a re-roll with a hero point: 14. Ha! Got another four but it fortunately becomes a 24 with the hero point.

    Arrow reacted to Charlie’s concern with less than stellar results. "I'm fine!" She hissed, rebuking him a voice bit louder than she intended. She regretted it almost instantly, and internally admonished herself for losing control. Such things were beneath her, she told herself. Olivia took another breath. She needed to compose herself lest the dynamic duo think she was completely incomplete. “I’m fine Nevermore. Let’s just wrap this up ok?”

  19. As Astrid she had to suppress her desire to smirk at Elena’s weed comment. So totally was from another world and a nasty one at that if her calling her home the ‘wastelands’ was any clue. The demigoddess she was sympathetic. Moving from Norway to America was a major transition for her, one that she still hadn’t completely figured out if she was being entirely honest. The same was true about Asgard, which was a whole another ballpark when it came to culture shock and adjustment. Even so, Astrid guessed that moving from a place called the wastelands to this world would be even more trying. She did not mention that all though, figuring that it would only make things awkward. Better to just answer some easy questions. Right? “Thor-club-ba. That’s how you pronounce, though I won’t knock you for getting it the first time. It’s Old Norse, which is a Hel of a language to learn, believe you me. As for glammed-out, well, you basically got the gist of that one.” Astrid wasn’t that much of a car nerd, but she did enjoy going fast on just about anything, be it motorcycle, speedboat, or even winged horse. Taking a turn on a chariot was no different and honestly sounded right up her alley. She said as much to Elena. “Oh yeah definitely! I would totally be down to make a trip on your ride if your offering,” she said honestly, her interest in the experience clear on her face. “As for fighting, well, you came to the right place! Students at Claremont almost always get involved in some fighting. It’s actually kind of messed up if you think about it, but it definitely give you such extra experience when it comes to scraping with bad guys.” Astrid made a self-deprecating chuckle, not quite sure if she actually found the violent phenomena funny or not. Or maybe she was just guilty that she did? Not exactly wanting to stay in that head space she quickly moved on to something else to talk about. “Maybe we can spar one of these days as well, ja? Hadn’t had a training partner in a while and would love to see this hammer of yours.”
  20. "See? Was that so hard, Chump?" Arrow asked in a tone that was deliberately between condescending and empathetic. "Maybe if you used your head a to bit more often you wouldn't be so easily duped by idiot posers like Sebastian over there." She rolled her eyes at Stinger though. "Oh please get over yourself, Melanie. Your a five at your best and being half-beaten to all Hell is certainly not that. Do us all and yourself a favor and shut up." She looked over towards Luke then and gave the teen somewhat of a prep talk. "Don't let that little creep get one over you, Nightscale," she said bluntly before quickly adding, "Your better than that evidently."
  21. Arrow will try her hand at diplomacy and see if Chump will surrender: Got a 21. Is a 17 if Chump isn't affected by her Attractive feat.
  22. Arrow smirked. She had hoped that her arrow would take her out of the fight outright but seeing her surrender to Nightscale was a decent consolation prize. With Stinger out of the fight and her urge to get even mostly sated, she now just wanted this fiasco over and done with. Looking over to an obviously exasperated and panicking Chump it was fairly obvious that he wanted it over too. Feeling generous, and knowing her arrows would still have trouble dealing with his bulk, Olivia decided to give the idiot an out. "Oh just give up, Eddie. Your dear leader Sebastian is stuck in a tree and everyone is either unconscious or stopped fighting. Why not do the smart thing for once and do the same. If you do we'll try to make sure that Summers doesn't do that much of a number on you and your friends."
  23. Astrid’s eyes went wide with recognition as Ryder went on about the concert. “Oh shit! I heard about that mess. You were there? Wow.” She looked Ryder over in a new light. The dude definitely seemed “I actually planned on going to that show with some mates but I got caught up in some stupid family drama and had to head back to Norway. Some ice giants were losing it again.” She rolled her eyes as if that explained everything before just continuing on ahead in the conversation. “So, a giraffe-rhino-centaur rage demon, eh? I’m not really an expert when it comes to Greek stuff but it might have been a chimera or something. Then again it was made of energy or whatever so who knows. I’ve heard magical skalds out there who can summon monsters with their tunes but never faced one my self.” The Asgardian paused and took a moment to refill her cup with punch as Ryder pet with his robo-bug. While she did, Elena seemed to return to the table and started to chat her up again. 'Huh. Guess I was right on the money about her not being from around here.' She gave the obviously uneasy looking Elena an comforting smile. "Dude don't worry about it. These clothes practically were scavenged from a thrift store I found in Riverside. Place was pretty cool pretty for the distinct smell of weed in the air." Not sure if that joke would even land for someone who came from another dimension or timeline, Astrid promptly moved on and started answering her questions about her powers. "Right so powers. Well I'm pretty tough and super strong, but that's like totally boring compared to what I can do with Porrklubba," she explained, actually getting kind of excited to talk about her favorite weapon of choice. "It's a warclub but it honestly just looks like a glammed out baseball bat. Whenever I'm holding it can shooting lightning, manipulate the weather, teleport and just totally wreck fools with it. It's pretty great. But what about you, El?" She asked, honestly interested. "I mean this as a compliment but you look tough as Hel. You a brawler too?"

    A small part of Arrow felt like was she being condescended to despite the fact that the older hero openly admitted his role in this whole debacle, though, it was probably just the anger more than anything else. Seeing her mentor, one of the few people in the world that she actually respected, be put into the Unkindness as if he was a child in need of care was an image that Arrow had no desire to see repeated in her mind like the world’s worst sideshow. She had to focus on something, anything else right now. If only to redirect to her anger into something constructive. "The House of Usher usually doesn’t operate in North Freedom,” she said coldly, her frustration barely suppressed. “West Freedom and Lantern Hill is their usual haunting grounds. The incestuous ghouls must be expanding their operations here. Probably saw Kingston as free estate after the invasion nearly turned it into a wasteland. I suppose its appropriate instinct for vermin like them.”
