A new sense of purpose!

(SAM) Most competitive fighters are tuff; anyone who says otherwise is trying to convince himself. The amount of money available and level of technological training guarantee you can be in the best physical shape possible in 6 to 9 months. Another couple months of martial arts or any other of 1000 fighting styles and you’re ready for the ring, or so you would convince yourself. Where the champions stand out is in mental toughness, if you believe there is the slightest chance you will lose, you will. I have tried so many ways to prepare mentally for a fight but never found a method that worked every time. Trainers commented on my level of dedication, but I didn’t listen. In hindsight that could have been the problem.
When the alien presence invaded my mind something snapped me back to those training sessions. Fighting a battle both mental and physical I new I couldn’t win them both. I surrendered to the physical attack and focused on defending myself mentally. I didn’t feel like I was being attacked maliciously it was more like desperation. Maybe the last act what ever this thing is that has now bound it’s self to me. I do sense a constant presence perhaps even trying to communicate with me; however I can’t seem to make out the random thoughts it projects into my mind. Perhaps given time we can learn to understand each other in some form or another. I do feel more relaxed now than I have in years, like a 2 ton weight has been lifted off me and things are going to work out for us. I will keep everyone updated as my situation unfolds.

What is left

(Jessie) While I support the groups stance on altering the time line; I believe that our best chances at overcoming Mukai is in the past, undoing what he has done. Not unnecessarily taking our own steps to our advantage, but somehow remove his advantage. It took him a lot to recover from us simply removing items from a safe in WWII.

I have this power for a reason and therefore believe we are on the right track on dealing with these past groups. Returning them from tampering with history removes Mukai's advantage 'now' and will make it easier to ultimately take him down.

We have seen what happens when we go after the temporal devices in the here and now, they get tipped off, removing our element of surprise and we have our asses handed to us.

What is left (In 'order')
1. May 31, 1908 (Tunguska) Completed
2. July 1947 (Roswell, NM) Completed
3. Oct 31, 1963 (Dallas, TX)
May 31, 1968 (Los Angles)

A. Dec 31, 390 AD (Alexandra, Egypt) Possible Destruction of the Great Library
B. Dec 31, 584 BC (
Jerusalem) Possible Arc of the Covenant

It will be interesting to see what trouble our actions caused Mukai when we return to the current time.

Capt. Jessie Ralston Report

(Jessie) After much discussion about undoing the damage caused by Mukai or going after time-light machines, (all while the headline news featured us against ‘suited’ opponents) we decided to go after and destroy the machines. Since Mukai could easily recover from anything we do while there are time-light devices remaining.

At the University of Chicago- we discovered the whole area (device and all) moved out.

Columbia University yielded similar results, save for a power converter-type component- which we recovered.

However, after persuading the downtown bank president to open early- we had much better luck. The central vault was merely an antechamber to a deeper room that did contain a time-light device.

In the process, Sam investigates a mysterious safe-deposit room full of timeless treasures and art from history.

Battle with a robot/synthetic humanoid occurred, while attracting the attention of a heroic woman.

And I discovered that the last time the time-light device was used was by Percy’s cohorts during the night of the Speedster. And… that this time-light device manipulated energies not to travel through time, but to create powers in individuals- the Speedster didn’t ‘come’ from anywhere, he was ‘created’ here.

The device was hastily brought to Area 51.

You did what while I was gone?

(SAM) It’s good to be back with the crew. Time to get back on the hunt for DR Percy, I can’t wait to beat that guy down!

What.....What do you mean were helping him now? How long have I been gone? Pfisters wearing a kimono , Jessie thinks she’s an actress I am out of it for a little while and everyone starts having delusions of grandeur.
Why do all you guys look so much older? I think I need a long debriefing.

Party United?

(Jessie) I was hoping to get the jump on destroying a temporal device, but it wasn't in the cards. I'm glad to finally have Sam back, but we still aren't at full strength. I hope our benefactors (US Government) will understand how dire our situation is.

BTW: look what I also found when Googleing our names: I didn't know I was an actress. History as we remember is truly fracked up!

We must depart

(Max) It was a pleasure for us to serve with you. Your group saved our lives and we will never forget that. Danke schön!

Capt. Jessie Ralston: Speical Ops Report

(Note: Jessie on her Harley *click to embiggen*)

(Jessie) Battle with the Egyptian Statues was the most challenging yet. They were impervious to most forms of our attacks, it seems that the only way to dispatch them was to send them back to their own time... or defeat their controller.

After completing our errand of setting up sensors for Percy, it was decided to wait until the Tunguska event to hopefully snare the observers out of the time stream as we return to our current time. This proved to be the correct course of action as our return to Area 51 with the observation pod and it occupants was successful.

I swear its getting like I can conduct these battery of tests on myself! Armed with information Percy gave us about the times 'his' teams were sent to observe:
1. May 31, 1968
2. July 1947 (Roswell, NM)
3. May 31, 1908 (Tunguska) Completed
4. Oct 31, 1963 (Dallas, TX) The Kennedy assassination.
5. Dec 31, 390 AD (Alexandra, Egypt) Destruction of the Great Library
6. Dec 31, 584 BC (
Jerusalem) Possible Arc of the Covenant

Mukai is proving to be a bullish force, one that has not seemed to backed down or taken any 'time' off. These temporal machines must be dismantled or destroyed- starting with the one in Chicago.

Something to think about

There seems to be a new suit that has been created for several governments to deal with the rise of meta humans.
