All right, I'm going to thoroughly search as much of the building as I can. I'll take 20 on the check, for a total of 22. With Echo's Quickness, it shouldn't take long at all.
Alright! Hit me with an IC post describing her search and I'll let you know what she turns up!
Hit me with a Stealth check and a Notice check!
Notice check: 1d20+12 29
Stealth check: 1d20+15 34
Gather Information check: 1d20+10 19
Bright red and shapeshifting says one thing to any Freedom City native: Grue. The shapeshifting aliens have tried to invade Earth more than once but they've always been beaten back, while a handful have actually stayed on Earth like the Freedom League member Pseudo. One of the more persistent Grue villains is the Meta-Grue, who has the combined powers of the Atom Family on top of his people's usual shapeshifting and telepathy; Jack of all Blades and Geckoman's fight with the Meta-Grue a few years back was widely televised and was briefly a bit of a sensation given how handily they took the alien down.
Let's see some Initiative!

These are minions, so that's a knockout!
Excellent! Are there any more within her reach? If so, she'll use her Takedown Attack feat to keep attacking. Since they're minions, she'll take 10 on that and any subsequent attacks, for a total of 22.
I'll say she can reach one more with Takedown Attack 1!

With the Grue dispatched Bench surrenders!
