"Fletch. Good to see you," she remarked with a nod. It looks like an impromptu squad of Freedom City's costumed crusaders had already arrived. Some she recognized; Fletch, obviously, and one of Duncan Summer's kids from the Superhuman First Aid class she taught once a month. "Captain Maddox, whats the sitrep?"
"The problem is," Warp whirled around to face the leather-clad man who'd showed up, "About four thirty in the afternoon, reality will be wiped out and we'll all cease to exist. You can't stay here to worry about a few rich old men and their poker chips. You've got to get the Freedom League, the Atom Family, the United Nations for all I care, just find someone who can figure out how to stop it," she paused for breath, having poured everything out as quickly as possible to try prevent anyone talking over her. "Look, you- I mean, we're heroes, right? Aren't we about saving the world and all that?" Warp eyed the assembled group skeptically.
"Right..." Fletch was initially at a loss for words as the young heroine launched into her impassioned speech. "So... you're saying we shouldn't waste time helping these people?" He looked around at the others, as if appealing for them to reason with her.
He looks to the rest of you. "Does someone wanna tell me why you're not apprehending this criminal? Isn't that what people like you are supposed to do, Fletch, Rescue?" He focuses on the two people he knows best in this situation-though he and Fletch have never met before, its obvious he knows him, and apparently trusts him a little.
He managed to suppress a smile. He knew Maddicks by reputation - a good man, but he'd still be yelling if Fletch had jumped in a time machine and turned up yesterday.
Dani rubbed her temple. Psychics always gave her a mild headache. "Alright, kid I believe you that something's gonna go down, but anyone who dies in the building stays dead even if we save the world. And the faster these criminals go down, the more time we have to tackle your problem. Give us a hand, and I'll vouch for you with the Freedom League," she glanced at Maddox. "Or the cops."
She powered up, lifting into the air and watching the Paradise intensely. "So, what's the plan?"
"If you have a map, I can 'port you inside," Warp offered. "Let's give 'em the surprise of their lives."
"Sounds workable, but we'll need cover as soon as we get inside. If I remember the inside of this place, there should be some fairly sturdy gaming tables and slot machines. Hopefully they're still intact."
