    Yeah sorry about that Bay just makes you pretty apathetic to stuff if you give it a few years.

    I always wonder about those tiny little details that makes some of your powers useless for stupid reasons.

    But probably PM Tin Mother or Setup Introduction thread.

    Probably get back on topic guys. So how about Lustrum? Sure she will castrate you and may put said part up your own butt. But still she was pretty hot back in the day. Though I pity the poor sods who actually tried.

    The power is actually less useless than you might think. I mean, don't get me wrong, being unable to teleport while people are looking at me is a massive inconvenience, but it's just encouraged me to get very good at hit and run tactics, stealth, and fighting without vision. Now, I can't claim to be very good at the fighting without vision thing, but I'm at least good enough at it to do more than flail uselessly when all the lights turn off. Now imagine fighting a dude in a pitch black room, or with billowing smoke so thick that you can't see two feet in front of you, who can change locations in an instant.

    Sorry, I'll keep to the topic now. I've never actually seen a picture of Lustrum, was she really that attractive?

    It might be better if you just went ahead and got an introduction thread started for yourself.

    Also Lustrum is still alive. She's just in the birdcage now.

    I'd say 60-40, in favor of them not caring that much. So... Good odds, I'd say.

    You say that, but it's likely some Lustrum Fanatic is already on her way over if she saw your posts.

    ABB*, you mean the mass bomber? Her and Oni Lee are dangerous. A immortal suicide bomber with tinker bombs I expect half the city to be blown up in frost and blackholes.

    Actually anyone know apartments near PRT? Planning to move my stuff out before ABB come back I do not want to be near bombs right now.

    Thread Subject. There's a New One

    I am posting this thread on behalf of Bagrat, our friendly guy in the know, who is far too busy right now to post himself.
    Yesterday at around 3am Rune and Cricket were seen encountering a new cape not far from Captain's Hill. They were spotted mid battle.

    The new cape displayed some sort of temporal shaker ability, similar to Alabaster, with the ability to reset objects and other people to positions they had occupied previously. She displayed some fine control with this ability, resetting Rune's floating platform out from under her back into the road, and resetting Cricket's position, while leaving her weapons where they were. She doesn't appear to possess the ability to use this on herself, as she sustained many cuts to her costume which she did not repair.

    Eventually she managed to capture both Cricket and Rune in such a way that every time they escaped, she could reset them back into captivity again. This continued until the Protectorate Hero Dauntless arrived.

    She left after a brief conversation, and the PRT and Protectorate have not offered a name for her at this time.

    Her costume seems to be a patchwork of Black Leather and Latex while she used a white faceless mask, fully encompassing her head.

    Oh hell. That's actually kind of scary. That's basically like teleporting Other people around right? The fact that she stuck around long enough for the PRT to arrive suggests that she's not a villain, but man, I really hope she's a hero.

    The scary part isn't that shes teleporting you back each time. The scary part is the temporal stuff, she rewinds a person to a specific time that also means rewinds memories.

    You could be a mook that lets say within ten seconds you run up and punch her. You reached say 9 seconds now your back to running and trying to punch her and rewinding again. Your stuck in an endless loop unless someone actually tells you you've been rewinded since in your head you've only now tried this tactic.

    At least it seems to be something that she has to use rather than something that she can set and forget. We don't need a Gray Girl.

    *Shudder*, yeah that would have been the point were I moved out of the bay.

    I wonder how fine her control is though, do you think she can chose to reset different aspects of a target? Like for example not just location, but physical status as well.
    Could be worth a lot in endbringer battles if she can just stand at a distance and reset all the injured she can see.

    What terrifies me is the second trigger potential.

    She has already shown to be able to disarm opponents by resetting them back in time without resetting their equipment, and Narwhal has shown us second triggers remove the Manton Effect.
    What happens if she gains the ability to send a body back in time without a head attached?
    How would you stop that?

    A Stranger like Nice Guy could probably do her in no matter how many time she resets she can't do anything to that kind of stranger.

    Are second triggers even a thing? I'm still convinced that Narwal just hid parts of her power so that people would underestimate her and then when she had to reveal it she just fell back on that myth and claimed a "second trigger". Yeah, right.
    Seriously though, there are like 20 reported cases in the US in the last ten years of capes who claim that there power changed/grew over time, and at least 15 of those were completely expected (like Dauntless). What's more likely, that capes can somehow trigger twice, or that those dudes were just bullshitting? What's next, you gonna tell me Eidolon triggers again everytime he changes powers? Get real.

    Anyway, I hope that new girl decides to be a hero, the bay could really use some good news right now with all the shit that's going on.

    She can reset people and things? She isn't Manton limited? Wow, that is scary. Can she overlap two things, like say a piece or re-bar Rune was wielding, then intersect it with a reset Criket who just passed through that same position?
    She also reminds me of those games parents play on little kids when they keep palming small toys just to see the kid looking around for where it went.
    Maybe "Once Moore" is a good name.

    No, she's still manton limited. Because she can't reset herself, right? That makes her like Panacea, who can heal other people, but not herself.


    As for empire retaliation? Well, they're obviously going to break the two out. No offense, I know the PRT and the protectorate do their best, but they're outnumbered here by a lot. So much so, that when it comes to keeping villains contained, they basically have a revolving door. Other than that... If we're going with the harshest possible retaliation, they could send Victor to snipe her. With all his skills, I'd be surprised if he doesn't have a sniper's skill set. There's not much she could do about that. They probably won't go with that option, but still.

    Don't you worry dearie, the response will be quick and brutal. We can only have one with a power as great as mine so the imposter will have to die. Just business in the end.

    God Dammit. I'm away from the thread for a few hours and there are already problems.
    While PHO doesn't ban villains on principle, threatening other users is against the rules, and therefore I shall be handing out a thread ban.

    At this point I'm waiting on the PRT and Protectorate official statement. The conversation between her and Dauntless lasted about 5 minutes, so whatever is going on with them they almost certainly know more than the rest of us.

    He got thread banned so he can't reply you but he may or may not get Victor to track you down and murder you if you live in the bay.

    Alabaster is just salty that nobody mentioned him in the hottest villain thread ;-)

    Anyway, I wonder what would happen if the new cape tries to reset stuff that has been frozen by clockblocker.
