After rushing to the edge of the city the temporally displaced heroes find themselves in the strange position of defending the giant monster heading towards New York as the Flautist attempts to recapture Crustacean-Rex for Dr. Lifespark. In the aftermath Flux can’t escape his teaching roots as he puts the Flautist’s flute in his desk drawer before turning the magical musician over to the MCPD. Now come the hard hitting questions, like, what does a thirty foot tall crustacean eat and is there a big enough bed back at the base. Of course, there is little time to solve all of these hard hitting decisions as Lifespark is not quite done and the heroes find themselves heading to Utah.
Crustacean-Rex (Julian) – A strange hybrid of human and what may be crab genes washes up on the outskirts of New York. Who is he and why has he come? Only time will tell.
Ex-Gen (Krista) – A refugee from the corporate totalitarianism of 2910. Enhanced with a number of cybernetic improvements she hoped to prevent a dictator’s rise to power. The only problem, she overshot things by about 850 years.
Flux (Dave) – After Danny Dobson and Robert West unlocked the Apportation Arcanum they were reborn as a single entity capable of being both anywhere and nowhere. The only catch? It took twenty six years to decipher the formula in which they were trapped in a state of quantum entanglement outside of reality.
Savant (Archie) – Daughter of the World War II hero Captain Patriot, Savant was born with the ability to recall and repeat anything she sees. Training under her father for years she chose to enter cryogenic sleep only to be awoken decades later, her father missing and the lab under attack.
