-Can only learn a new combat skill if she's seen it first
-She is limited to the amount of metal cards she can use since Alex can't create more of them like normal cards



Alex doesn't even know if she has a family. She spent a good portion of her childhood being experimented on to become a super soldier for the military. The scientists spent day and night running tests on her until the formula was perfect and she was ready to be the perfect super soldier. She was then given away to the military at the age of 13 to be a abused and train along side other mutants just like her.

Alex's team involved many different mutant in the program such as Shawn(who was the sniper on their missions). On missions, Alex was a infiltrator and was usually tasks with taking out near by guards and collecting information. she also had to kill the occasional civilian when the order was given even though she didn't want to.

The best day ever was when their program finally got cut and Alex was finally free. But then she realized all the crime that was happening and decided she couldn't just sit back and let it continue. Now she uses her abilities to stop crime and kill who she needs to in order to clean up the streets. Her trademark is leaving an Ace card wherever she stops a crime or takes out a bad guy.


So begins...

Prologue: Humanity and Beyond

The Universe....it's a big place out there. Within the infinite span of the cosmos is it really just fantasy, to think that there may other be forms of life? Well probability wise, it is illogical to believe that there isn't an indefinite amount of lifeforms and civilizations out there. In fact it is illogical just to believe that there is only one form of sentient life. Yet, who does believe in the illogical? Who is so vain or so ignorant to believe that their world is the only world with life on it? Humankind is. Yet, one shouldn't blame the Humans for this illogical conclusion, they have yet to see any proof otherwise....or have they?

Welcome to the Earth! A veritable paradise within the infinite span of the cosmos. It is here the Human Race calls home and it is here they remain, not always blissfully, unaware of the Universe surrounding them. They do say ignorance is bliss but denial is a whole different story. While the world at large does not believe in the fantastic or the Supernatural, thinking that this sort of thing is all fantasy! Although many are ignorant there are plenty more who have experienced these things and there are those who deny the proof. Many of the world's government and scientific communities deny these claims of the unthinkable, writing off those that believe as insane. Yet, when they are delivered absolute proof and they deny it, is that anymore sane? Many people from the shadows have worked to keep these people silent and have worked to seal away all evidence. Is it still just fantasy?...Or is the unimaginable real?

To the world these are all just wild speculation. But what if I told you that soon, what we believe to be unreal will become a thing of reality? What if the world was heading to some great apex that would spin the world on an entirely new axis? The truth of the matter is, that our world is changing. More and more, sightings of the fantastic are being reported more frequently, everything for UFO Sightings, to Monster Sightings, to reports of Humans doing Inhuman things. Is this all just speculation or is it cold hard proof? We are all heading for some great unknown and while the population will not understand and may even resist this change, they will not be alone. This change will bring great danger but it will bring great security as well. There are people out there right now. What looks to be ordinary Men and Women are actually far from ordinary. They work to understand themselves and the world around them. All the while preparing for a great change that will not only change the ordinary but the extraordinary as well.

And just who are these people you ask? Why they are you. Whoever you may be you have something special, something that this world desperately needs, even if it doesn't acknowledge that it needs you. Although the biggest question isn't who they are, they all very well know who they are, even if they are confused. No, the greatest question to ask is how they will change the world? Not every change is good and some change may be change for the worst. After all we are only Human and the unfortunate thing about Humanity, is their capacity to do great good but also do great evil. We have no idea who lead the charge for change but I can assure you, a struggle will ensue for the betterment of the planet. A struggle that will push all parties involved to the edge, but lets not be so dark shall we? This battle has yet to take place and the worst of it is still to come. No at this moment in time we look to the seeds of change. They are being planted as we speak.

As we speak, people from all over the world and even beyond are discovering more about themselves and the world. Yet none of them understand the gravity of it all. Many are still self-absorbed into their own worlds to consider they are stepping into a world far larger than their own. This is the story about these extraordinary beings and their trials and tribulations. This is a story about their growths, their highs and their lows. It is a story about discovery and it is a story about destiny. We now enter a world that still seems ordinary but underneath lies something quite the contrary. I welcome you to enter a world that is still Human as I ask you change it into something that is....Beyond Human.


Chapter 1: The Beginning

Welcome to the beginning of a new world...no wait scratch that. Welcome to the end of the old world. Yes that is much better. Don't worry it's not the apocalypse or anything like that. No it's more like the end of an era...and trust me the times they are a changin'! As Bob Dylan would sing. Anyway before I ramble, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Andrew Benjamin Novus. You call me Andy for short, or if you prefer by my moniker, Professor Extraordinarius! Kind of a mouth full yes, but I like it! It perfectly describes my life. It has been nothing short of extraordinary! Still, I am no the focus, well, not the whole focus. The real focus is on the everyday accounts of a whole slew of other extraordinary people! My accounts are just one little jigsaw in the puzzle of life. No, you need every jigsaw to solve the puzzle, so without further ado, how about we work on making these jigsaws fit shall we? *He then hums happily*

Ah yes, quite a bit of jigsaws I see...well, this is going to make for one long puzzle. I think every should sit down....*he then whispers*...it's gonna be a long one. Anyway, how about I let the big guy tell you a story, I'm sure from his perspective he won't leave out any details. *He then perks up and then motions you closer so he can whisper* The reason why won't is because he hardly says anything, he lets the characters do the work. *He then chuckles as the Professor moves away* Anyway take it away big guy! *He then leans in close again* And by him I mean all of you. *He then winks as he pulls away*

* * *

The Earth, it still turns as it ever did. The plants are still growing, the animals are still surviving, and Humanity is still progressing. Idyllic and average. But that is all about to change....we now begin your story.

Daniel sat in his office looking out the window to see a glimpse of the city. He didn't need his watch to know it was already time for lunch. The city was buzzing with huge amounts of people as they poured into various buildings to grab their meals and have a moment to escape their stuffy office jobs. Daniel found it amusing to watch people do this. Being immortal, he didn't really need food to survive he only ate it to appear normal in the public eye and so he could sit down and eat meals with his son.

Just then, his secretary, Lena, came busting through the doors in a poised and elegant manner. She dropped a file on his desk and then read his schedule for the day. "You have a meeting today at 2 with the board of directors and it should be done in enough time for you to inspect the new bank being built in Manhattan. As for tonight, you'll be meeting with the mayor and chief of police at 7 in a public area of their choosing to discuss the terms your your agreement which I have just sent to your email to look over. And the file on the girl is on your desk along with a few others involved in her program I also gave David clear instructions to only observe her and keep his distance as much as possible." All those that worked closely with Daniel in his corporation knew of his gang or were involved in it. Some of them even possessed abilities like him.

Daniel smiled at her and picked up the file and scanned through it. "Alex Pierce..." That girl had recently become a thorn in his thumb after she ruined one of his drug cartel operations being sent to Chicago. Normally, Daniel would be upset but he kind of admired her for doing such a great job. He decided instead of killing her, he was going to see what he could learn about her and possibly turn her over to his side and after seeing that she's a soldier, Alex sounded like she'd actually be of use to him...

Lena turned to leave and was at the door when Daniel stopped her. "Lena, could you do me a favor and call Bruce. Tell him to fetch James from school. I've decided there's enough time for us to have lunch together." He smirked and threw the file back onto his desk. "And do make sure to check in on David. I'm not paying him mess things up."

David sat at his table drinking his coffee with his headphones in his ears. He listened to his music as he occasionally glanced over at the girl discretely hoping she wouldn't noticed him. He had her file pulled up on her phone and still couldn't believe. Sure she looked well toned but he could hardly believe that girl was capable of taking out one of Daniel's drug cartels. Whatever she was packing, he wanted some of that.

Just then, David's phone began to ring through his headphones and he answered. "Hey gorgeous, miss me already?" He could hear a giggle through the phone and David grinned in triumph. Lena is about his age and is an incredibly gorgeous red head that spends every opportunity he gets wooing. He doesn't really care if he has a shot or not he just enjoyed flirting with her.

"Daniel wants to make sure you've found the target and have yet to ruin the operation."

"Well you can tell him that I am on vacation."

"Nice try, do your job."

"What makes you think I'm not right now?" David hung up the phone and smirked as he took another sip of his coffee and noticed the girl getting up and walking past him as if she didn't even notice he was there. David looked behind him and watched her walk out of Starbucks but not before she made eye contact with him and smirked. Alex Pierce... What do you have planned... This was the first time he'd been so close to her in days and he knew better than to follow her. He was going to wait it out and see what she did.

Daniel grinned as Victor happily took the scotch. "Only the best for such important possible clients." Daniel had mistakenly called Victor by the wrong name and was respectfully corrected on it. "Oh, it's Voight not Void, it's alright an honest mistake."

"My apologies, Mr. Voight. I must have heard the name wrong when my secretary informed me of our meeting." Daniel gave a charming and apologetic smile as he waited and listened to Victor go on about the possible business plans which had Daniel rather intrigued.

"I am sure you of heard of Voight Enterprises, well we would like to deposit a significant amount of our money into an American Bank. You see it's all rather political as we keep the majority of our money in offshore accounts and well, certain rabble rousers find that disagreeable...so, to get them off our backs we are putting money back here in America." Victor spoke as he sat with one leg over the other and made a few hand gestures especially at the rabble rouser part. "I told Father about you, because he doesn't feel comfortable with placing his money in a bank like Chase. And I told him that Mr. Snow could carter to more dignified members of society better than most." He spoke as he situated his tie as he rose up, proud in his seat, as he called himself dignified. "I am here to ensure that our money will have a safe transaction and it will be kept safe, no funny business or anything like that. He has heard of your business being robbed before but I am sure that won't happen to our money, will it?" He asked as he sipped on his scotch.

Daniel found that way that Victor spoke and carried himself to be all too amusing and intriguing. He waited on giving Victor a response and used the moment of silence to have some of his scotch. "I can assure you that your father's money will be greatly taken care of and I can even make sure to help your father receive positive campaigns for using our american bank." He paused again for another drink. "As for robbery, my bank goes through every mile to find and stop whoever finds themselves idiotic enough to steal from me." Daniel was a great liar but he did feel as if he could trust Victor in the near by future with what Daniel is really up to after hours. "There's no greater banker you can trust than me." He flashed a charming grin and finished his scotch.


James sat in the office next door that belonged to Lena. He wanted to stay in the room with his father. James always enjoyed watching his father do business. Sure he wasn't the greatest man in the world but he had a way of caring himself through a negotiation and being able to so easily persuade a person to eat up everything he said that just intrigued James. His father was such a charming and charismatic man. he just wished he didn't do what he does after hours...

"How about a game of chess, squirt?" The sound of Bruce's voice brought James's attention to the man he considers uncle. James then smirked at him. "Are you prepared to lose?". Bruce laughed at him and placed the game on Lena's desk despite her protesting since she needed to do work. She then rolled her eyes and moved done and continued what she was doing on her tablet. James laughed and helped Bruce set up the game. James was the white pieces and Bruce had the black pieces. James made the first move.

They continued to play for what felt like hours even though it hadn't even been an hour in real time. "I refuse to lose to a child." Bruce confessed which made James chuckle as he moved another piece. "That's unfortunate seeing as how you just did. Check mate." Bruce laughed. "I've trained you well..."

Meanwhile in Chicago...


Alex impatiently stood in line at Starbucks waiting to finally be able to place her order. After all, superheroes needed their caffeine. Unfortunately like most days in Chicago, Starbucks was packed with other caffeine crazed people desperately craving their caramel macchiato. Finally Alex was next in line and was able to place her usual order. A grande caramel mocha and vanilla cake pop to satisfy her sweet tooth. Alex then waited for her drink to be prepared when she noticed someone walk in that didn't look like the usual Chicagoan. He seemed out of place from the rest but avoided eye contact and found a place to sit with his iPhone and laptop.

Alex took her drink and found herself a place to sit. She noticed the guy continuously making subtle glances at her as she had her drink. Alex never turned to fully look at him but saw him in the corner of his eye. He was handsome but she could tell he wasn't interested in trying to hit on her because he would have done so by now like most of the other men in the city. Instead he just sat there casually looking up from his laptop until he got a phone call. Alex then stood up and casually walked passed him like she didn't even notice his existence but as she left Starbucks she turned to look at him and made sure he was looking before she gave him a taunting smirk and left as if to say come and get me.

Sure enough, he bought into the bait and followed Alex into an alleyway. A familiar and annoying voice spoke in her head. "Alex, what exactly are you doing?" Alex smirked at the sound of Garret's voice. "I know exactly what I'm doing. You'll see, sparkles." She called him by the nickname he absolutely hates but ignored the last thing he said when the guy finally stood in front of her. Alex then followed his arms and looked him over. "So how about you tell me why you're following me?"

New York City...

Victor nodded as Daniel spoke even accepting his apologies. He finished his scotch by the time Daniel gave his spiel about robberies as he placed his glass on a nearby table.

"There's no greater banker you can trust than me." He flashed a charming grin and finished his scotch.

Victor revealed a grin of his own and felt confident in Daniel's words. "Excellent, I am quite glad that I can trust my money to your bank. Of course anyone who would provide scotch can't be all bad now can he?" He then chuckled. "Anyway publicity or not I feel that our business relationship will be successful. Now is there some forms or whatever that I must fill in order to make a deposit? After all this is the first time I have entered this bank. Normally my father would have pre-established paperwork handed down through the usual channels, but I guess he wanted me to become use to handling things personally." Victor spoke.

"Just some more of his grooming techniques for sure." He spoke offhandedly.





Speed. "I live life in the fast lane...well at least the fast lane was supposed to be on a race track." Randy thought to himself as he ran down the street to his home. "But now my life IS the fast lane, and every where is a race track. This is just too cool!" He thought as he blur passed the many cars and pedestrians of the city of Chicago as he ran into his apartment building. "Shit I hate close corners!" He thought as he hit the side of a wall coming in through the front door leaving another dent. "I really, really hope the landlord never solves the mystery of the broken wall." Randy thought as he heard the exciting muffled voice of the superintendent coming from down the hall. Randy booked it up the stairs in a blink of the eye as the superintendent arrives shouting, "I finally got ya you little-!?" He stopped as no sign of his criminal was found. "GODDAMMIT!" He shouted. Randy could only laugh.

Randy entered his room as he sat on his bed and took off a pair of neon green boots. "Oh wow, the Doc did it! He made shoes that don't melt every time I decide to take a jog." He spoke to himself as he looked down at the soles of the boot. They looked and even felt rubbery but where in fact altered to withstand intense friction. Randy placed them aside and busted out his cell phone and to tell the Doc the good news.

"Hello?" came a soft but also weathered voice over the phone. "Hey Doc it's me Randy. Hey I wanted to let you know that the boots they work!" He spoke rather excitedly. "Oh good." The Doc responded not nearly as enthusiastically, rather tired actually, but relieved nevertheless. "Yeah your a real miracle worker, now I don't got to worry about getting the stink of burnt rubber out of my clothes or my apartment." He spoke with a laugh. "That's nice, but I would have preferred to see so for myself instead of you telling me over the phone." The Doc spoke. "Yeah well, I told you before your lab just doesn't have enough leg room for me man, I needed more space, more distance, but at least they work." He spoke with carefree chuckle. "Yes, well, I don't like the idea of risking you being seen. I'm not quite sure how the world would react to a man who can run faster than any car in the streets." The Doc spoke with worry. "Hey don't worry Doc, the only thing people are gonna see is a blur, hardly anything that anyone would even care to notice." Randy spoke trying to reassure the Doc. "Perhaps, but you can never presume to know what anyone would do." The Doc spoke with caution.

"Yeah, yeah, well do you want me to come back?" Randy asked. "No...that's fine, take the rest of the day off, you can visit me tomorrow morning." The Doc replied. "Alright, see ya later Doc." He said as he ended the call. As Randy tossed the boots inside his closet he was beginning to situate himself on his bed, prepared to watch some television when he propped up suddenly realizing, "Hey! I wanted some coffee!" He then stood right up prepared to put on his shoes when, "Wait, it would look weird if I came strolling in with green boots on, hm...I better use my tennis shoes for this, besides the Starbucks I saw on the way is like a couple blocks from here...no big deal." He thought to himself as he tied on his shoes and ran out.

He quickly made his way down to the Starbucks stopping himself in an empty alleyway a few feet away from the Starbucks entrance. His feet felt a little hot but at least there was no fire or melting for that matter. He was about to enter when he saw quite the attractive lady step out. "Ooh, nice." He thought. Not too long after another man stepped out seemingly following after her. Randy didn't think much of it, beleving he was her boyfriend but that sour look made him think otherwise. It wasn't until he saw off the corner of his eye that both entered a nearby alleyway. "Could be trouble." He thought to himself. Randy didn't want to be caught spying but he wanted to make sure the hot chick doesn't get robbed. Besides whats good having superpowers if he doesn't get to use them to save chicks! He quickly decided that he would run across the street and up to the roof of the building on the opposite side. He did so but not without crashing into a janitor's closet within the building across from them "Aw man, I REALLY hate close corners." He thought to himself as he exited the closet and onto the roof.

He could see from across the way, the chick seems to be confronting the mugger. This might end badly. He decided to watch and wait, if they guy pulls out a knife or something he could run down and stop him before he can even get one stab in. At least, he hoped. He looked over to his shoulder to notice something green on it. "Huh? What the hell?" He thought as he peeled it off. It was a cloth towel or something. "Must be from that closet, oh well, I hope the janitor doesn't need it right now." He thought as he continued to watch.
