Welcome to DCAQ, in our last issue our hero Isaac Morrison rolled into Chicago on our way to LA only to become embroiled in a battle against Dr. Alchemy with the blue beetle. We managed to evacuate the civilians from Kord Industries while the beetle held off the doctor and now we can rejoin the fight. As for rules, there will be options after most updates to vote on. The option with the most votes wins after 10 minutes or a specified amount of time. I may call a vote early if I am prepared with the writing and it becomes overwhelmingly in favor of 1 option. Some action require rolls on a 1d100 crits on 1-2 and 99-100, I will call for a roll after an option has won and only the first 3 rolls after I call it count. Write ins are always welcome, I have veto power on them and may assign a roll. With all that said let's get this show on the road. Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/949682/
With the element of surprise gone you consider what to do next, Blue Beetle and the Doctor are still about 30’ off the ground and your vertical range seems to be lacking, you need to do something before Blue Beetle takes any more damage.>Shoot him again (80)>Climb up to engage in close range (45)>Write in

You decide that you need to get the doctor inside your range, you proceed to make several columns of ice then freezing a plane on top of them to make a decent sized platform from which to engage. While you we're doing that, beetle chucks several explosives at Dr. Alchemy only for him to use his powers to render them useless with his powers. However as the Dr. is distracted by the bombs Beetle rushes in and cracks him in the jaw sending him reeling. Seems Beetle isn't afraid to bring out the big guns now that the civilians are safe. However as you complete the structure the commotion from the fight shatters the floor sending you tumbling to the ground.>Brace for impact (70)>try to catch yourself (90)>Write in

An idea pops into your head as you plummet toward the pavement. You attempt to make a slide out of ice to control your fall. You spray the ground below to make a column but then shape it into a surface on one side. You manage to catch the slide without impaling yourself and make it to the bottom and tumble out onto the pavement. Beetle and the doctor are still up there but it looks like beetle has the upper hand, the doctors trasmutations seem to be getting weaker as he runs out of steam. The victory seems to be going to beetle even without your continued help. This could be your chance to slip away.>Slip away unnoticed (20)>attempt to shoot Dr. Alchemy (70)>try the platform thing again and try not to fuck it up (50)>write in

>>976834>get an Ice prison>>976849You won me over
OK, I'll swing my vote to ice prison as well....
>>976853well at lest its a good one
You prepare an ice prison to hold Dr. Alchemy and signal Blue Beetle to dunk his ass. Beetle acknowledges and quickly knocks his unbalanced foe down directly into his cage, you hop in and retrieve his device while he is stunned and seal the prison only leaving some air holes. You hold up your hands to signal the kick was good and the crowd cheers for you both. The police start to move onto the scene and Beetle signals you to follow him which considering the circumstance seems like the best way to get out of this.“Great work down there stranger, I'm called blue beetle, but you probably already gathered that, I didn't catch your name, also what brings you to Chicago”.>Tell him the truth about your predicament but not your identity>Make up a story, you don't know if you can completely trust him

>>976937>>976910no, was just a joke about the oceanus argument at the end of last thread. We're not giving out our real name.
Blue Beetle seems like a good person, he also might be sympathetic to your predicament. You relay everything that happened so far. “Wow” beetle says, “sounds like quite a predicament, but i'm afraid all i can do is help you out of the city. This sounds like some sort of off the books or rogue operation that is pursuing you, and I can't help you fend them off. Also it sound like you met The Question, I've dealt with him before, He’s crazy but has a good heart. Anyway i can either get your car out of the city unnoticed and send you on your way or I can arrange for a private jet to LA but they may be waiting for you there as a unscheduled take off will be noticed for sure. I appreciate your help out there, getting the innocents out let me take Dr. alchemy without worrying about hurting someone. You're really good at this we should keep in touch after you finish hunting and being hunted.”“Thanks, I might just take you up on that” you reply, time is of the essence, you should ask Blue any questions you may have and then get the fuck outta dodge.>no questions>write inAlso>take jet to LA>continue on road and keep a low profile
>>976987I felt a great need to use this image before we left Chicago behind

>>977013shit i had a momentary lapse of reason. im used to answering questions myself
Thank him for the help too

>>977056Doesn't he like a lot of earth stuff anyways?Sounds adorable, though.
>>977059>Doesn't he like a lot of earth stuff anyways?he dose but oreo's are his crack
You ask why Dr. Alchemy would want Prometheum so bad“Volatile promethium, in addition to being extremely durable and rare. Is a catalyst for triggering meta-gene mutations. But I suspect the doctor wants it because it can generate and store a near limitless amount of energy. Prometheum in the hands of someone like him could be considered a global threat.” “That’s heavy doc.” you reply“Indeed Marty” beetle responds in kind“Anyway if I can take the chance to make it all the way to LA in one sitting I have to take it. Thank you so much for all the help you've given me, and i'll definitely look you up when i'm done with all this” You say.“Ok I'll send word to prep the jet, good luck my friend.”30 minutes later you are in the air in a luxurious private jet owned by Ted Kord himself, It's not hard to guess Beetles identity at this point but that is the least of your worries. When you land you will be facing your pursuers, there is no question. You elect to get some rest during the four and a half hour flight. And are woken to the aircraft being diverted to an airfield outside LA.
You touch down and out the window you can see several black cars parked on the tarmac. This is it you've been caught up with. But you we're prepared, There is a motorcycle in the back of plane you can use to make your escape. But you need to deal with at least their vehicles so they can't pursue. They are about to board.>remain in the plane and engage in close quarters>go outside and attempt to talk first>go outside and attack

You decide the enemy would have an advantage in a wide open space, so you remain in the plane and let them come to you. 2 teams of black ops guys burst in, one from the front and one in back. They are trying to pinch you.>Ice wall for some cover (30)>blast 1 side with ice (specify) (45)>write in

>>977259You blast the goons from behind cover. Most of them are unconscious on the floor or rendered immobile. You've no doubt they have more waiting for you outside and probably won't send any more men into your personal shooting gallery. You peek outside to see a man in a half mask who is carrying a rifle and some sort of wrist mounted weapon arguing with a large black woman while a large grey creature and more soldiers stand by. You can't make out what they are saying obviously, but the argument is getting heated and some of the soldier turn to face the man, it seems they are on guard from him and the grey beast as well. You spot a pond off the side of the tarmac but the route to it is exposed.
That's all for tonight, thanks for joining us. barring any unforseen circumstances well be back here tommorow night for our confrontation with the mysterious bunch chasing us across the US of A. Ill hang around as always and updates are on my twitter @TheKekromancer

>>977314It's Amanda Waller.
thank you for running mate.
>>977314Deadshot is with the rest of them but a conflict of intrest came up. the other two if you are curious are Waller and king shark
>>977329Yeah we stepped in it the moment we left evidence of our ice powers back at the traphouse with the blockbusters.
DESU I had to stop here becasue I didnt plan on the flight being an option, once we talked to Ted I realized that it would be in charachter for him to offer it to us
>>977348what the fuck, are they pulling this shit again

>>977447im not asking you to im just speculating
You briefly consider what to do, you ultimately need to escape from here but as long as they have their own cars or decent marksmen taking the bike is too big a risk. You need to thin the herd first.

You decide to go out and confront them, not without preparing first thought. You rev up the bike and open up the back. You put up and ice wall for cover and park yourself behind it behind it ready for whatever they have you also subtly create a slick of black ice on the ground covering all the space between you and your adversaries.“Why are you pursuing me?” you yell over to the crowd. “So you finally show yourself” the woman speaks up. “There's no harm in me telling you now, people like you are a danger to this country and what has unfortunately become my main job is mitigating that danger. Now with that said, you haven't been going around engaging in criminal activity besides being a vigilante and you haven't seriously hurt anyone in pursuit of that either. Both of these things are admirable and it would make my job easier if more meta-humans behaved like you. So i'll cut you a deal, come quietly and we can work this out like adults, resist and you'll end up wishing you hadn't.”“Don't listen to her kid, you can't trust waller as far as you can throw her if you die or lose those abilities of yours we'll all be in trouble” The masked man cuts in.“One more outburst Lawton and i'll have you arrested” The woman swiftly replies “I've been workshopping ideas about how to make use of dangerous individuals like you, What's it gonna be Morrison?”.>agree to cooperate>refuse and run>refuse and attack>explain why you can't go with them, see if they'll negotiate further>write in

“Sorry Ma’am, I just can't seem to bring myself to trust you for some reason. I promise to keep on the strait and narrow if that means anything.” You shout as the bike revs and you break for the pond. But a bullet strikes your tire and sends you crashing about half the distance to the pond. You manage to raise a column of ice to block the hail of gunfire that suddenly came your way. “You've made a big mistake, Men, shark, give chase. Lawton, hobble him” Waller shouts. As she barks these orders those who gave chase comedically pile up as they slide over the ice and Deadshot takes one of the cars for himself, but not before putting a few shots in the tires of the others.“Lawton, what the hell are you doing?” the woman asks.“Sorry Waller, if it we're anyone else I wouldn't care. But I have to look out for number 1 and almost nothing you could offer me would be worth going through the shit I would if he were to die.” Lawton replies as he rushes over to your position. “Kid, there's a complicated history and i'm giving up a big paycheck and burning one of my most stable bridges so do me a favor and don't die.”“Uhhh, thanks I guess” you reply.Just as you say that king shark rights himself and charges.

You hop on top of Lawtons car and tell him to step on it. He obliges and you speed off down the runway in hopes of getting out of their range. But there's a problem, While you get clear of the soldiers, king shark chucks the remains of the column you left behind as he charged at you and Lawton and you spin out and are thrown from the car. You are now faced with a large grey skinned beast man, this seems familiar but still terrifying.

The beast makes a sound slightly too high pitched for his body and slumps over. You waste no time in getting into the car as Lawton stomps on the gas and you're off.

Ray is a fucking asshole and is ultimately the reason our unit broke up, besides you of course, he was second in command behind Wilson, Your dad was an infiltrations specialist but could hold his own good in a real fight, your mom used to be our scout but switched to running our back lines and support once she got knocked up. Ray always thought he was a better shot than me even though he was in his 30s and I was 19, I'd humiliate him now thought.” He goes on and on about how Ray sucks, you feel you are only getting one perspective thought.Soon enough you are in the city, and Deadshot pulls up to a run down apartment building. “A man who can take you to your father lives there, appartment 13 5th floor. He won't be happy to see you but probably won't be hostile. Good luck I guess I don't need you dying before I do.”Deadshot speeds off and you are close to your final destination. You don't know who awaits upstairs but you are on your guard none the less.
