Zach has been listening deep in thought, either that or he has been putting a lot of effort into trying to make his eyebrows touch. "So, you bring up a couple of really interesting points. For one thing, introductions have been a bit spotty up until now. If we are going to be working together, names would be helpful. Also, knowing what we each bring to the table would be nice. So, to get the ball rolling, I'm Zach. I'm a computer tech. I have a pretty flawless memory and if yo believe my mom, I'm intellectually gifted. If you believe my dad, I'm a smart ass. Power wise, my whole neuro-electric system seems to have been juiced up. My neural impedance has dropped so my mental processes are incredibly fast, physical a little quicker than normal. I can sense electrical current and magnetic fields; detecting metal, wall current, even down to other people's neural impulses and reading data off of magnetic media. I can also adjust my own bio electric field slightly to alter data and as a nice side effect I am pretty much shock proof. I'm still conductive, but the electricity doesn't phase me." Zach pauses for a second. "The next big thing that pops to mind is that if the demonstration brawl was Shanks' breakout event, that would logically mean that Patch Adams has the capability to either cause a breakout or can accurately predict who will manifest powers and when. That is based on the idea that he got in touch with Shanks before hand or in some way manipulated the girlfriend. The other possibility is that he has some kind of media filtering capacity, possibly similar to the data sifting that Marcus is doing. That kind of a beat down would probably get uploaded to social media pretty quick, and the demonstrations had no shortage of smart phones. Now I am not saying that we shouldn't pursue the prior contact angle. It might yield results. I just don't want to lose sight of what happened after Shanks vanished. I'm intrigued how he managed to elude hospital video security. That might give us a little more to go on. Not appearing on standard footage tells a much different story than missing or corrupted footage."
