After three weeks, President McCain announced that things were underway for New York City to enter under Federal Jurisdiction, the same as Washington DC. The Mayor, Governor, and millions objected immediately.. The process has come to a standstill, and is expected to fail. The military forces were scaled back considerably, afterwards. There were still soldiers stationed within the city. But they were few and far between. Tempers were running hot, and the city was left to fend for itself. A handful of Supers, or Metas, or Evos (short for evolutions, a new slang term that's beginning to gain traction), came forward, offering to help the city keep things under control. They said they felt that things were getting crazy, and they couldn't let the city they loved, the city they called home fall to such insanity. They were turned away, naturally. But that hasn't stopped them from trying. And they've produced some results, causing a few people to question whether they should be made official.
But it's not all good news. John was right, and things did get bad. Those who had power used it. The Rock Man, who had no name, and obviously hadn't come forward, continued on his crime spree. Banks, jewelry stores, anything that stood in his way, he broke into. He wouldn't stop, and as of yet, is still at large, living somewhere and swimming in his treasure like some kind of Scrooge McDuck. There are others too, of course. As for the Bug Man, there's been no sign. Though occasionally you find yourself facing a solitary spider, or grasshopper, or cockroach. It is unsettling.
