Powers

Superpower(s):

Immortality: -Cannot age once reaching a certain point(age 30).
-Immune to diseases, toxins and drugs.
-Wounds, even crippling or fatal ones, heal near instantly.
-Immortality is linked to specific items(his ring and a special pendant)

Paralysis Inducement: Can immobilize a target completely or partially, causing them to be left without movement and sensation. Making motor functions and muscle movement unavailable, the victim may freeze on the spot or crumple to the ground. This is done by Daniel simply looking his target in the eyes and paralyzing them for 30 seconds or by having them drink his blood and paralyzing them for even longer.

Skills: Daniel has been around for many years and has had the opportunity to train in various forms of martial arts and has multiple degrees from attending many different colleges. He's also a great fencer.

Equipment: His family ring that holds part of his immortality, two holsters hidden on his back to hold his hand gun, his pendant that holds the rest of his immortality(kept hidden in a safe and he doesn't even know its location).

Weapons: Daniel always keeps two custom pistols on him at all times and a knife. He also uses various rifles and shotguns if they're around. In his office, he keeps an Italian rapier to use and it is his favorite weapon and the one he feels most comfortable with.

Weakness(es):
-Can be kept from healing if a body part is removed and not brought back to his body.
-If someone destroys his two items, he will die
-It is very likely he could eventually go mad
-He can still scar from a deep enough cut/wound
-drugs and alcohol do not affect him so he can never experience what it's like to get drunk which causes him to drink often wishing he could
-He is incapable of having a physical relationship with a partner and thus, cannot have lasting relationships. He also cannot produce his own heir because of this.

History

Biography: There are many rumors about Daniel's family that have been around for many centuries. Many say that his ancestors sold there soul's to the devil's and that they are now demons. Others say that witches gave them their powers. Daniel even know himself how they obtained their abilities just that each of them are born immortal and stop aging once they reach 30(though during their teen years they aging is rather slow before hitting 30). Even though they are all immortal, they can still be killed. Some could die via decapitation, others were vulnerable to certain poisons, and some like Daniel could store their immortality inside of objects.

His father always favored Daniel over his brothers(he was the 2nd child of three boys) but this came with a price. Since he was a young boy, Daniel's father sexually abused him every night he had the chance to and this even continued when Daniel was an adult. If he tried to fight back and use his abilities to to make an escape, his father would send his men after him and have Daniel tied down so his father could finish where he left off. His father would also often flaunt him towards guests during their family' many elaborate parties and boast about how handsome his son was. this caused his eldest brother to become viciously jealous and he set out to ruin the face of his father's favorite child(he had no knowledge of what his father was actually doing to Daniel. Only his younger brother knew when he witnessed it). His older brother then attacked Daniel but only manage to make a deep enough cut on his right cheek that gave him a scar because his father caught them and responded by beheading and killing his eldest son for trying to harm his precious Daniel.

Daniel eventually worked up the courage to kill his father and did so by destroying his items during the 1920's and finally ending his torture and becoming the new head of the family. What his father did to him mentally and emotionally scarred Daniel and now he cannot have any sexually relationship with someone because it brings back memories of him being raped for centuries by his father. After that, it was like something snapped...

Daniel then took over the family business which was running banks at the time(through out history they had high ranking roles such as nobles, generals, business tyrants, etc...) as well as discretely running a Mafia organization and successfully keeping the cops from figuring out his was running both. He quickly became a powerhouse and someone to fear. Daniel wasn't afraid to have to kill someone himself and would often do so in a bloody way often ripping them apart or setting them on fire. He will also often hire David as an assassin to take out people he wants dead or to get rid of heroes that get to close to figuring him out.

His younger brother, was able to have children and had two children, a boy and a girl, and son on the way in the late 80's. His brother was jealous of Daniel's power and thought he deserved to be head of the family since he could produce heirs. He plotted Daniel's death but it turned out that his wife was actually infatuated with Daniel and only chose his brother since Daniel couldn't have sex with her. She told Daniel of his brother's plans and Daniel responded by paralyzing his brother and killing two of his children in front of him. his brother came out of the paralysis and cut Daniel on the other cheek giving him a similar scar before Daniel beheaded and killed him.

His brother's wife had just had her baby and ran away with him frightened that Daniel would kill him to. Daniel found them and killed her and then to the boy to raise him as his own son and heir. He named the child James and is raising him like his own son and teaching him his ways so that David can be his heir if Daniel eventually dies.

Today, he still runs the mafia but has taken up the name Scarface to keep his identity a secret and because of his two scars(it's also to pay tribute to his old friend Al Capone). He has also expanded his company to being one of the largest used banks in the states. He occasionally steals from those who use his banks and then pins it on other criminals to keep from getting caught.

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.

The setting changes from earth to New York City

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."

Vivienne sat on her regal chair as if it was her throne, her leg crossed over and her hands clamped gently on the arm rests, she was staring at the long table in front of her, each side was a chair which held up a crime lord, each of them glared at the other, they were competitors after all. She had called each of them there to demonstrate her powers and have them pledge her loyalty to her, an army of the Underworld.

She watched them bicker and argue for several minutes before one of them pointed her out, the youngest of the 4 men before her, the Don Simoni. He was most certainly the most interesting, he had secured his position by having his father killed by the organisation known as Olympus, his empire was one of the wealthiest, but his eagerness to become more than what he is, would be problematic. Vivienne smirked as all eyes turned to her, she hid her eyes behind black sunglasses but the rest of her features were not obscured and the men were almost enthralled by her beauty alone.

She raised from her chair and circled the room, her hand running over the shoulders of each man in the room. ”I have asked you all here because you lead the largest of the crime families, the Simoni, the Grimsley, the O’Donnells and, of course, the Sakai.” She said as she draped herself over Yuji Sakai, the Oyabun of the Yakuza, her hands linked together as she hugged him, his guards moving in to grab her. As one did, she whipped around and focused on him. “How dare you touch me? Kill yourself!” She ordered and, with an entire audience, he pulled out his pistol and shoot himself. The entire room froze, a dread silence falling over them all.
“You… How did you… He did exactly as you told him.” Edward Grimsley managed to whimper and Vivienne cast a glance his direction, with a slight smirk.
“Trust me, I was being kind to the boy.” She admitted before removing her glasses and revealing her purple eyes. “I could have done this.” She looked at the other guard who went to grab her and smirked, a much more sinister smile than any of those men had seen. Within a few seconds, the boy was screaming how his body burned and his bones were snapping, his entire body was aching but there was nothing could be done, for it was all in his head.
“Enough!” Yuji yelled at Vivienne and she shook her head and the screaming stopped, it was replaced with pained panting and sobbing. “Nothing happened to you, you are a disgrace.” Vivienne’s face contorted into an angry frown. She slammed her hand on the desk beside Yuji.
“Nothing happened? Let’s test my power on you, shall we?” Vivienne growled, Edward let out a slight chuckle and she glared at him. “If you are so eager to cast aside his pain, I would be happy to show you what he is truly feeling, Oyabun.” She then focused her power and him and before long he was screaming and cry like his personal guard. The entire room froze, they had never seen the Oyabun admit he was in pain, he had one of the best pokerfaces and here he was begging a woman for mercy and to stop the pain.

Vivienne released him from the torture and made her way back to her throne, sitting herself down she kissed her teeth. “This is what disloyalty will get you, a slow, painful death. None will be shown a quick death, like him.” She pointed to the body on the floor, blood pooling around him. “I am your Queen, and I will not tolerate disloyalty.”
“What if we don’t want you as our Queen?” Grimsley asked, standing from his seat.
“I was offering you your life and freewill,” She purred. “There are another 2 options, but you most certainly will not like them.”
“Prove it.” He challenged her, and with a flick of her wrist every guard in the room pointed their guns at him. “What are you doing? Put down your guns, you wankers!” He yelled at his own men, but they just seemed to look right past him.
“This is my offer, promise your families to me, willingly, and you can life and still rule, just under my approval.” She announced standing from her throne and waving her hand again, now each gun was trained at the back of each man’s head. “Or the other options are die here and now, or become one of my many thralls, like your men here have.”

“You have the Simoni family at your side.”
“The Sakai are your humble servants.”
“Aye, O’Donnell are at your service, miss.”
“No, I will not be a slave to some bitch after all this work! She should have to work for it.”
“Kill him.” Vivienne ordered and the room was filled with the orchestra of gunfire and pain, causing a grin to widen across her face. When the room finally fell silent again, Vivienne looked to Don Simoni. ”Simoni, I will need you to contact the Olympus Organisation, what do you call their leader?"
“They call him Apollo."
"I feel we could profit from their expertise. And we also had one mafia family not represented, the Snow family, I would like you to fix that.”
"I shall get on contacting both Apollo and Mr Snow right away, my Queen.” Simoni ever bowed as he addressed her.
Lady will do.”

It was the middle of the day in New York City as an extremely bored Victor Voight, looked out into the busy streets. He saw all of the insignificant masses hurrying from point a to point b. Their very behavior reminded him of drones to a bee colony, so, so, predictable. He hated it, but what he loved was that he was so different from all of them. All of them are so ordinary and he, so, much more than that. Being the son of a wealthy tycoon was one thing but having abilities no other human have...that was too delicious. Still, Victor is being treated like his apart of the useless rabble as his Father called him in. Probably going to give him an earful on how to become a businessman like himself, so that way he won't be turning over in his grave when Victor is running the show.

Most of the time he could only sigh and push him out of his mind. After all his father can't make things literally disappear into thin air now can he? Still he isn't going to suck up his old man that would be too...Shakespearean. Still it had it's allure as he was forced to sit here, taking time out of his day to speak with his father only to have him be on the phone with some big wig from whocaresville. He was a perfect combination of pestered and annoyed. His father hanged up the phone as the old, sternly man turned his gaze to his son. "Now Victor...remember what I said about connections?" He asked. The heir just sighed and rolled his shoulders. "Yeah it's not always what you know, but who you know and blah, blah, blah, cliché here and cliché there." Victor lazily recited.

His father slammed his fist down on the desk. "Now listen here boy! I am trying to tell you all the things you need to understand! I am giving you one last shot otherwise I am going to give this company to one of my best associates!" He was shouting without much provocation. Here he goes again with threatening to take this empire away from Victor. Something he wasn't going to let happen but he might as well let the man think he is still threatened by that. Even though Vic is fantasizing about hurtling his Dad's pick into oblivion, just to screw with him.

"Now listen here boy! I want you to start learning how to make connections and business deals. Recently I've been looking in to placing some of funds here in an American Bank, after all these confounded protesters whine that American companies are not placing their money back into America so they won't get taxed." He began to mumble some negative words about deadbeats and liberal propagandists. "So I hear you know of a very reputable banker correct?" His father asked.

Victor perked up as he actually had something of worth to add. "Why yes, I'm sure you heard of him, Daniel Snow." He spoke with a smile. "Oh...I don't know about that one, I've heard from some associates that some funds disappear, victims of some robbery or fraud or something." His father responded. "Well that doesn't happen always and they always catch the perps...trust me Dad, your money will be safe there...I can make sure of it!" He spoke, very confidently. "Well it's not all my money and this bank isn't run by the blasted Morgans!" He began to mumble some more. "Well what are you sitting around for? I've told you how to act during a business meeting, go set something up and if you do well I will reconsider giving you the company." He spoke as he dismissed him. Victor walked off as he heading for a nearby phone, he had the number for Mr. Snow's Secretary. He took the wireless phone and began to dial. After the ringtone ended he was greeted by a voice.

"Hello? Yes, this Victor Adrian Voight from Voight Enterprises, I would like to set up a meeting between Daniel Snow and myself. Yes the call is about a possible banking account, now I know normally I would just see a clerk but being such men of high standard, Mr. Voight much prefers that we speak directly to him. After all we got quite a bit of money and business to discuss." Victor spoke. It would seem he will be gaining a call later when Mr. Snow has a suitable date in mind. "Alright I understand, well here is my number to call me, "He spoke as he said the number, "And I will be waiting to hear back from him soon. Alright, yes, goodbye." He spoke as he hanged up the phone. Now all he could do was wait until he receives a response.

James stood in front of the bathroom mirror looking at his reflection. There was still some blood on the collar of his shirt that he couldn't tell whether or not it was his. His cheek bone was starting to turn black and blue and his lip was definitely busted. "Well, this is just great..." James knew his father would be upset that he got into another fight at school. The dean was probably calling Daniel right this instant while James stood there gawking at his flawed reflection.

Truthfully, James was only trying to stop the fight. One of the stuck up school bullies was harassing a kid for no real reason and picked a fight with him so James stepped in and taught the bully a lesson. Though the kid did at least manage to land a few hits but James quickly took him out and made a run for the bathroom where he was now as his injuries began healing until you couldn't even tell James had been in a fight. This always worried his father. He didn't want James exposing himself and Daniel because they have no idea what might happen if they knew but that still didn't stop James from teaching the school bullies a lesson whenever he could.

His friend, Eric, then came bursting into the bathroom to find James. "They're looking for you." James sighed and fixed the tie on his school uniform before leaving the bathroom to only be stopped by a teacher. "You are needed in the office." The teacher walked him to the office and spotted a familiar figure standing before him, Bruce. A grin spread across James' face. "Uncle Bruce!"

"Hey kid, ready to go? Bruce is a tall and strong looking man who also has abilities like him and his father except he posses telepathy and telekinesis. Daniel always keeps him close by and if not for James, Bruce would be his successor because he has a slow aging process thanks to his father testing an experiment to see if he could give off some of his immortality using James's blood.

"What's going on?" James asked as he left the building with Bruce.

"We're pulling you out of school early because your father wants to have lunch today."
Bruce opened the door to the passenger seat of the Porsche and the two headed out of Brooklyn and into the direction of Daniel's office building. "By the way, you might want to change your shirt." He threw a fresh shirt over at James and James changed. "Your father has yet to hear about your fight at school today."




Eventually they made it to the building and James walked into his fathers office to hear part of the conversation he was having with Lena.

"Cancel my 2 o'clock appointment and tell Victor Void to meet with me then. As for this Vivienne Campbell, just tell her to make an appearance and I'll decide what I think about her offer." He turned to look at Bruce. "Bruce, I would like you to stay close for when she decides to visit. I may need your 'expertise'."

James was always fascinated by the way Daniel spoke. He had a subtle British accent when he spoke and it always sounded brilliant to James. James didn't really have this accent and spoke more like an american from growing up here.

"So father, What's for lunch?" The two of them grinned and sat down.

Victor quickly answered his phone once it rang. He listened as Snow's Secretary told him to meet Daniel a 2 o'clock. "Alright I'll be there soon, in Brooklyn right? Alright, alright, yes I'll be there soon." He said as he hanged up the phone. Victor prepared himself as he called for a limo to take him there. As the driver pulled up, Victor stepped inside as he looked towards the bar. "Ah, I see you've restocked since last time." Victor mentioned. "Oh yes, I've made sure to remember to restock, I even got your favorite vodka in there." He spoke happily.

"It's too bad I am off to a meeting, otherwise I would make myself a drink. Of course if I show up to my own meeting with alcohol on my breath my father would certainly have kittens." He spoke with a sneer.

_____

Soon they came up to the drive way of Mr. Snow's building. The driver stepped out and opened the door for Victor. "Here we are sir, the offices of Mr. Daniel Snow." He spoke as he closed the car door behind Victor. "Yes, good." He spoke as he walked up to the front door for which the Driver opened as well. As Victor stepped he looked about the building for the Receptionist. Once he found her he walked up to her desk and spoke, "Hello. I am Victor Adrian Voight, I have an appointment to see Daniel Snow." He spoke down to the Receptionist. The office worker looked up and nod and as she then typed on her computer and discovered his appointment. "Yes, if you wait right here I will patch you in now." She then got a hold of Snow's Secretary as she told her that his 2 O'Clock is here. "Alright, now if you could please wait a moment some one will be down to escort you shortly." she spoke as she went back to work. Victor sat in the waiting room as he looked about the building.

A bunch of drones going through the daily grind. Some other people like him are waiting to talk to clerks about accounts and such. Some are waiting in line for withdrawals or deposits, but it was all standard order and not all that exciting. He was growing bored from the sights he saw and hoped his escort will arrive soon. Otherwise he may just go back into that limo to get something to drink.

Vivienne put her finger to her mouth and gently chewed the tip, resting her feet on the table she watched Damian with observant eyes. "God you really are obsessed with yourself, it's not even a facade." She let out a sigh and shook her head, waving her head. "No one is invincible then, not even yourself." She warned him, if he dared set a hand on Dianne, no doubt Dianne could handle herself, but he'd get the Facility and Vivienne's empire rain down on him, he would end up a sitting duck.

She picked up on the reference to loyalty, "How many times do I have to say, I don't want loyalty. Loyalty is for the rabble, the cannon fodder. Allegiance is all I ask, we'll work together but we in no way have to trust or even care for each other. Your terms are agreeable, so long as it isn't a double edged sword, if you wish me to respect those term, then you will also work by them." Vivienne cocked her head with a grin. "There will also be a cut, my empire generates a lot of revenue and the rabble don't need any, the profit is quite high and I'm willing to offer you 45/55, me obviously getting the 55, if this alliance breaks, so too does any deal." She curtly nodded and with wave of her hand, bid them goodbye.

"Oh and Mr Jackson, maybe you could show me this torture rack and we could play who's gun if bigger." She called after him with a sultry smile on her lips. Not long after they had left, Sironi entered the room,
"We just got a message for you, Lady." He informed her. "It's from the Snow family, he requested you visit him and he'll discuss his decision on your offer."
"It would appear I'm to be made an example of, I'm to come begging and pleading for an alliance, so be it." Vivienne left the dining room and heading for the master bedroom, now hers since her arrival at the estate. She opened the walk in wardrobe. She browsed the dresses before picking out the perfect one and a pair of matching heels, and a pair of diamond earrings. She ordered the chauffeur to pick her up and drive her to the provided address. She sat in the car, sipping Armand de Brignac from a glass of crystal and taking great care not to spill over her fine dress.

The car pulled up outside the building and Vivienne sat, drumming her fingers impatiently as she waited for the chauffeur to open the door for her. When he did, she past him a polite smile and stepped out, first her bare leg followed by another, which when she stood were covered by the slit skirt of her dress, the left one just barely being covered. She turned her nose up as woman in a pant suit walked past and had the audacity to look her up and down. Vivienne focused on her and made her walk out onto the road, as if she were crossing without looking and bang, she was hit by a car. Vivienne smirked before returning her attention to the building ahead of her and she made her way in to the reception, she approached the woman and gave her a sinister smile.
Image"Hello, my name Vivienne Campbell, Mr Snow sent for me. I have no appointment but he sent for me so, I imagine he organised one and it better be for now." Vivienne watched the human type her name and the girl looked up her and she shook her head.
"I'm sorry, Mr Snow doesn't have you down for an appointment."
"Well then, I suggest you fix it, before I break you." Vivienne then left the desk and the frightened girl to phone his personal secretary. Vivienne made her way into a waiting room and found a man staring out of the building. "Good afternoon," She purred with a polite nod before leaning against the wall.

Daniel and James ate their lunch in his office. Daniel had no real need for food but enjoyed spending time with James. It made him feel human. "I heard about your fight at school today... The two ended up having a long discussion about it. Daniel wasn't upset about what James did he was just worried that he might expose himself. "You need to understand that doing something that is a huge risk for the both of us." James nodded.

"Now for punishment, you'll have to fence with me tonight after my meetings." James groaned. "Fine..."

Lena then came in through the door. "Sir, your 2 o'clock is here as well as Vivienne Campbell" Daniel nodded. "James, I want you to go with Lena while I speak with Mr. Void. Lena, have someone bring a drink for Ms. Campbell and let her know I will be with her shortly."

Bruce came in through the door. "Ah, just the man I was looking for. Let Victor know I'm ready to meet with him and bring me a bottle of the scotch I keep hidden downstairs." Bruce found Victor in the waiting room. "Mr. Snow is ready to meet with you know." He lead him into Daniel's office and grabbed the bottle of scotch. He poured two drinks for Victor and Daniel.

Daniel leaned back in his leather chair and had some of his drink. "So what is it you would like to discuss Mr. Void?"

Victor continued to enter a state of boredom, one he feared he would not come out of. That was until the lovely vision of some woman came and spoke to him. "Oh, why hello there." He spoke with a smile. Normally he has seen women of beauty, after all, he is one of New York's most eligible bachelors, many women would like a shot to be rich. Which makes it difficult for Victor to find someone who isn't all about the money, but he wasn't here for love, he was here to secure his future. Not that it needed anymore security than he could create from a black hole. Still the only reason he gave her real recognition because she did something that wasn't drone in behavior. He swore he heard off the edge of his hearing that this woman just threatened the receptionist. Now that is someone worth speaking to."So what brings someone like you here to a boring old waiting room?" Victor asked genuinely interested but before he could hear her answer he was called up. "Oh...well sorry, it looks like my meeting is starting. I'll see you around hopefully." He spoke merrily as he left to go see Daniel Snow.

He entered Daniel's office to see a drink poured for him. "Ah, how thoughtful." He spoke as he lifted up the drink to his nose. "Mhm, some scotch, very excellent Mr. Snow." He spoke with a smile as he had some of his drink. He stopped when Daniel called him Mr. Void. That irked him a bit, considering many of his father's employees mistake their name Voight for Void. It disturbed because he often believes they do it on purpose to piss him off. But this man is not some Drone, he's a wealthy banker! He can't treat him like some common piece of trash, so he most be delicate and respond to him respectfully. "Oh, it's Voight not Void, it's alright an honest mistake." He spoke as he waved his hand dismissively. "Anyway yes I do have business," he spoke as he sat in a leather chair, "I have been sent here on my father's behalf." He began to speak.

"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 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.

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.

Chicago...

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.
