" I know you are not trained...but, unfortunately, you are our best best...no offense intended", the doc responds. " And i called on you now because we have a problem."
He nods in Marcus' direction, who uses his powers to change the picture on the main screen. The image splits up, showing to the left the face of an unassuming middle-aged caucasian male, looking a bit unshaven but not really remarkable. The right side shows that same man being in the middle of what seems to be the "Occupy" demonstrations from a few months before...in the video being played, it shows him attack a group of police officers who used their sticks on a protester who was already on the ground.
What follows is probably the most epic beatdown anyone of you has ever seen.
As anyone with even a passing interest in Martial Arts can see, the man's technique is absolutely flawless and absolutely devastating. Within 3 seconds, he has taken out the officers and is attacked by another, whom he takes out even quicker.
It goes on from there...
" This is Adam Shanks. 29, living in Brooklyn. No criminal history. Currently working as a temp in an accounting firm. And, given Marcus' analysis, the perfect fighter. Absolute coordination, superhuman reflexes, high resistance to pain and perfect muscle memory, All you see here are techniques he has learned from watching movies. He managed to take out 67 officers, all trained in riot procedures and all heavily armored, before he was shot in the knee and transferred to a hospital. Where he vanished." Again, the screen switches to show another man, a haggard, drawn figure in a suit. The man's left eye is covered with an old-fashioned eyepatch, the other an unsettling shade of purple.
" This man was last seen visiting him. We do not have any ID, no fingerprints, nothing. The minds of the hospital staff have been tampered with, with all of the night staff suffering from short-term amnesia. We need to find Shanks because if anyone else does...well, just imagine him being duped or controlled. The perfect assassin."
