Ingested Professor Cornelius's formula

Personality
The emergence of his powers also left Robert with a severely impaired mental state, causing three different persona to dwell inside him. The first being Robert the normal man, The Sentry, and the pure evil Void. Robert struggles to keep the Void under check while using his powers, sometimes loosing control to the dark entity. Sentry has recently learned to place psychic inhibitors on his mind in an effort to keep The Void under control. Although this prevents The Void from fully taking over, it is still able to partially possess Robert if he feels Sentry isn't getting the job done. The Sentry is personified as the idle golden boy;highly optimistic, brave, and graced with an indomitable will. The Void on the other hand is the exact opposite, being the evil incarnate.

Powers


Chemically Enhanced Physiology: The Sentry's superhuman powers and abilities derive from the Super Soldier Serum as the serum was increased thousands of times and altered making it much more potent. The experimental serum creates a phase-shift in his molecules, causing the Sentry to become partially out of sinc with normal reality. The serum induces a photosynthetic reaction, resulting in a hyperstate of consciousness. Though most of his powers and their limits are still unknown, the Sentry has been said to have the power of a million exploding suns, and he has displayed several abilities similarly possessed by Superman. He is so powerful that Ms.Marvel admitted to Norman Osborn that what happened after Scarlet Witch breakdown will be nothing compared to what Sentry will do. The Sentry's strength greatly varies depending on his appearances, and this is mostly blamed on his mental instability. Depending on how mentally stable he is, he could be powerful enough to fight off Cosmic Threats; his powers could be unlimited.

Molecular Manipulation: Following a confrontation with Molecule Man, Robert discovered he has the powers of molecular manipulation which he had used to revert himself from the liquid Molecule man had turned him into. The extent of these powers are not yet known, but it is confirmed that they are greater than that of Molecule Man, as he was able to defeat him. However it should be noted that unlike Molecule Man, Sentry has little control of his powers. Although it is theorized that Sentry derives his power from the same source that Molecule Man does, maybe even The One Above All himself. Since The Void and the sentry are essentially the same person with differing personalities, the void's own shapeshifting might be a result of the Sentry's molecular manipulation. Additionally Reynold's molecular manipulation ability theoretically would give him potential regenerative healing abilities as well despite his extraordinary invulnerability and durability. It has been theorized that the vast majority of his powers are derived from his ability to alter matter and energy and that he could simulate almost any superpower with enough practice and control. He seems to do this unconsciously as the void when he changes shape and power sets.

Superhuman Strength: The Sentry's strength varies greatly and depends on his mental stability. The Sentry possesses vast superhuman strength, granting him the ability to lift (press) far in excess of 100 tons easily. He is one of the strongest beings in the Universe. He has demonstrated several astonishing feats of strength during his career, including easily lifting tremendous weights, ripping Carnage in two (although it is not certain if he is dead), taking Terrax the Tamer's cosmic axe and shattering it with his bare hands,[4] lifting a cruise liner effortlessly and his unrestrained power overloaded the Absorbing Man. While possessed by The Void he was able to break the Hulk's limbs with relative ease and was even able to easily overpower and defeat Ares in combat going so far he ripped him in half, presumably killing him. He can also absorb solar radiation for additional strength. His clash with the most powerful incarnation of the Hulk has suggested his physical prowess is among the elite as he was able not only to hold his own but he even gained an advantage before losing the control of his powers . The Sentry has yet to demonstrate an upper-limit to his strength, but he has shown that it can rival the likes of the Hulk, and even those of gods like Thor or Hercules themselves although this depends on his mental state.

Superhuman Speed: The Sentry possesses the ability to think, move, and react at superhuman speeds. He has been observed catching bullets and has also been seen moving far in excess of supersonic speeds; his speed on earth is enough to be gauged as fast enough to move at orbital velocity (5 miles a second). It should also be noted that the Sentry has numerously been depicted as able to fly to the sun in a matter of moments (where it takes light over 8 minutes). This shows that his speed during inter-stellar travels is several times in excess of the speed of light, or (alternately) demonstrative of an ability to enter hyperspace.

Superhuman Stamina: Sentry's enhanced musculature is far more efficient than that of a human. As a result his muscles produce no fatigue toxins thereby granting him theoretically unlimited stamina. However, his stamina greatly varies, depending on his mental state. If he is fully stable the Sentry is unable to tire. If he is mentally unstable he can exert himself to his peak for approximately a week.

Superhuman Agility: Sentry's natural balance, agility, and body coordination are enhanced to levels that are far beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Reflexes: The Sentry can react at superhuman speeds exceeding several times the speed of Sound. Sentry was able to catch a sniper bullet from an advanced Skrull gun (typical sniper bullets travel at mach 4).

Superhuman Senses: The Sentry possesses vastly enhanced senses. He is able to hear almost any sound at any volume or pitch. The only Earth creature who can detect sounds at the frequencies he can is a blue whale (0.01-200,000 Hz). He has shown enough control to block out ambient sounds to focus on a specific source/frequency (He has demonstrated hearing a butterfly's heartbeat in Africa). The range of his eyesight is also far greater than that of a human being. He is able to detect a single person from hundreds of miles in the air and above cloud level. The full extent is unknown.

Superhuman Lung Capacity: The Sentry has a tremendous lung capacity enabling him to hold his breath for extended periods of time while staying active. This was demonstrated when he managed to survive in the vacuum of space,


Flight: The Sentry possesses the ability to float by defying gravity, utilizing his superhuman speed to fly far above supersonic speeds (above mach 4). He has demonstrated traveling to the Sun and back in a matter of moments which would require him to fly at speeds faster than light (or bypassing normal space through a hyperspace shortcut). And during the Skrull's secret invasion he flew to Saturn (about 1 thousand-million miles distant) almost immediately, which required him either to move at multiple times the speed of light (still thought to be impossible in this space-time) or to have bypassed space altogether thus giving the impression that he had moved faster than light-speed.

Invulnerability: The Sentry is, for all intents and purposes, almost completely invulnerable to harm. He has been seen surviving extremely harsh atmospheric conditions, including the vacuums of space. Nick Fury has stated that so far SHIELD has yet to find a way to kill him, and even Iron Man's scanners found no physiological weaknesses in the Sentry's body. However, it has been displayed multiple times that he is susceptible to mental manipulation: by the Void.

Photokinesis: It may be theorized that the Sentry also has the superhuman ability to generate, control, and emit light. This ability to produce hard-light constructs may be similar to those of Dazzler when it was revealed that the Void is a just an expression of his repressed persona, and thus his creation

Light Projection: By conscious control over the light he produces, he can control its direction, frequency (color), amplitude (intensity), and duration. The Sentry can produce numerous effects with the light he manipulates. He can simply cause a bright glow all about his body. He can create a pulse of light on the order of several tens of thousands lumens of power per second (the sun produces at most 10,000 lumens of brightness at noontime), which temporarily blinds people with its brilliance. This ability has been proven to be able to calm down the Hulk.

Energy Blasts: The Sentry can generate light, heat, force, and other forms of energy as powerful blasts and explosions of a yellow color. These blasts are usually generated from the hands and eyes. The maximum power of these blasts is unknown.

Vast Psionic Abilities: The Sentry possesses powerful psychic and mental powers mainly used for holding his physical form together, (though it is not yet known whether the Sentry can use them the way Professor X and other psychics use theirs). The only psychic abilities he has displayed so far was implanting his memories inside Paul Jenkins' mind. The Sentry was able to erase himself from the memories of every being on the planet.

Psychic Shadow: The ability to mask psychic presence and obscure the perceptions of other clairvoyants. The Sentry is able to block the vision of other clairvoyants, making any subject within his target radius appear "dark". This ability seems to be innate, and one that Robert has no idea about.

Psychic Navigation: The power to track people/objects with one’s mind and/or create mental maps of an area. The Sentry can trace where targeted objects/subjects are located. He can tell if the target is progressing, also having an influential psychic compass within them, feeling a magnetic pull towards the direction to the target.

Psychic Inhibitors: The Sentry can place psychic barriers in others' minds, allowing them to block things like abilities and memories. Once they have placed the blocks, the victims cannot access their abilities or memories, making them harmless. He is even able to use this ability on himself.

Resurrection: The Sentry appears to be able to bring the dead back to life under extreme emotional distress. After Ultron murdered his wife, Sentry was able to resurrect her by simply touching her. It does not appear he has control over this power, as he was shocked by his ability to do such an act. This may also extend to simply healing others' injuries.

Abilities


Genius Level Intellect: Robert is very intelligent. He is capable of using his powers to detect all substances in a single object and thence determine how much of what substances make up an object. He is adept with mechanics, architecture, machinery, tracing energy sources, cybernetics, robotics and computer science. He used his great intelligence to construct his Watchtower as well as everything inside of it. Since he has never been very wealthy, it is likely he recovered all of the substances required for his Watchtower's construction from many different areas of the Earth or (perhaps) other planets as well. Once he collected the right amounts of the different substances he needed, he would then forge them into the materials and technology he needed. His other inventions include CLOC and the Watchtower. However it is unknown if he was so intelligent before drinking the formula, or if he gained his intelligence along with his other powers.

Strength level


Class 100+; the Sentry possesses limitless superhuman strength enabling him to lift well over 100 tons easily. With Marvel dubbing The Sentry as the world's most powerful superhero at that point in time, and with the serum causing a photosynthetic reaction to his body, completely altering his state of consciousness, it is nonetheless conceivable that Sentry's powers are indeed limitless. His powers have the ability to surpass those of Thor's, Silver Surfer's and Phoenix force's. He has very similar powers to the Hulk; Sentry gets stronger as stress builds. With the additive bonus of the suns rays, he can match the Hulks strength at virtually anytime (depending on his mental state).

Weaknesses


Psychic Assault: The Sentry has a fragile psyche and is readily susceptible to mental manipulation.

The Negative Zone: The Sentry is at his weakest in the Negative Zone. His powers and health gradually deteriorate the longer he is inside the zone itself and even worse, his counterpart/nemesis The Void's powers increase to maximum.

Mental Illness: The Sentry's mental instability has led to his immobility on several occasions. In laymen terms, he's crazy.

The Void
Image

As the Void, Robert possesses the following abilities:

Shapeshifting: The Void is capable of shapeshifting, with his appearance varying from a shadowy, trenchcoat-wearing villain to a massive hurricane of darkness.
Atmokinesis: The Void has massive control over the weather and can create destructive storms.
Infini-Tendrills: The Void can create deadly infini-tendrils. Those impaled on these tendrils experience traumatic visions of the past, present, and future.
Darkness Manipulation: The Void has massive control over darkness.
Night Augmentation: The Void is at his strongest during the night.
Telepathy: The Void possesses telepathic capabilities, the level of which are unknown.
Negative Zone Augmentation: The Void's powers increase to maximum whenever he is inside the Negative Zone.
Photokinesis
Unlimited Cosmic Power
Deception: The Void is very deceitful, especially with Sentry.

Sentry stepped into bar with his hands in his pockets, carefully watching his feet as he made his way to an empty seat. The dark bags under his eyes suggested that the fractured hero hadn't slept in days, possible do to his constant battle with his alternate persona Void. Did he even need to sleep? Who knew. Robert was feeling mentally stable at the moment, but he knew he couldn't let his guard down; the Void would use that to its advantage.

Upon sitting at the table, Robert ordered himself a glass of Green Tea with Ginseng. He had been seeing multiple psychologists in the recent weeks, helping with his mental instability. "Finally..a break.." He said to himself, waiting patiently for his drink to be brought to him.

Sentry raised his head to the bartender when he brought his drink to him, "Thank you." Robert reached into his pocket and pulled out a few bills, handing it to the man before taking his drink in his hand. He raised the glass to his lips, took a few sips, then set it back down on the table. His enhanced taste allowed him to determine and differentiate between every substance that was in his drink, granting him with a greater respect for the things he ate and drank than most. He let out a gentle sigh, surprised that no one around the world was in any kind of peril; this was one of the rare moments that he could kick back and relax, as much as the Void would allow him to.

His gaze shifted to the Black-haired individual who suddenly appeared in the bar, the display of speed enough to catch his attention; although it was completely inferior of his own. Robert didn't focus on it for long however, for something was brewing.. The sudden emergence of music triggered the dark persona that dwelt inside him to 'awaken', signified as a breathy groan in the back of his mind. "I hate music.." Whispered the voice, bubbling to the surface.

This wasn't good, Robert could feel the Void inching its way to the surface. He pressed his palm against his ear in an attempt to deafen himself, which was when he remembered how good his hearing was. A simple application of thought allowed Robert to block out the sound of Nerine's singing. He stood up and made his way over to the bar, placing his now empty glass on the smooth counter-top. He looked over to Fedelia and forced a smile, "Can I get some more Green Tea?" He recalled the advice his therapists had given him, and began to inhale and exhale deeply to calm himself down.

"Having a bad day as well?" He asked while keeping his eyes on the bartender. Although he didn't mean to, Robert could easily hear the conversations of every person in the bar; and had no problem sorting between them. He then reached to his left to get one of the menus, which he quickly began to scan while waiting for Fedelia to reply, if she chose to that is.

Sentry quirked a brow when the girl in front of him struck her coworker across the face, which made him wonder what exactly he had done. In the back of his head, the voice sounded once more: "Violence..good.. why don't you join in Robert?.." "Shut up.." Robert retorted aloud, making it appear as if he was talking to himself. He started to tap his fingers on the table rapidly, his mental strain apparent on his current facial expression. The most predominant features was the furrowing brows, and the single bead of sweat that slid down his forehead. "How much longer on that tea miss.." He realized he hadn't got the woman's name, though this wasn't his biggest concern.

Sentry had balled his hand into a fist, clenching it so tightly in fact that his hand would have bled if it wasn't for his superhuman durability. He nodded in Fedelia's direction while taking his tea, "Thank you, I hadn't noticed it.." Robert raised the glass to his lips and took a few sips before setting it down. "That's a nice name, I'm Robert." He replied, "Say, how fortified is this place?" He didn't know how long he could suppress The Void, it continued to talk to him.. urging him to give up this seemingly futile struggle. "So long as Sentry exists, I will exist also.. It's useless to try and stop me Robert..

Well that was good to hear at least, but anything was possible if The Void took over.. he feared its power more than his own. "I know it's none of my business, but please calm down." Robert replied, taking another swig of his tea again. His hand was shaking at this point, swishing the translucent liquid inside it. The sound of chipping wood filled the bar, which was the result of him dragging his nails across the mahogany counter top. Although his nails were no sharper than a normal person's, they were a great deal stronger; which would explain how he was able to do this without breaking them. He heard the malevolent being chuckle devilishly in the back of his head.

"I'm l-losing control.." He replied to Fedelia, doing his best to fight off the evil intentions that plagued him. He knew that if he allowed the Void to take over, he would continue on a rampage until someone strong enough beat him to unconsciousness, and that was only if Void didn't manifest completely. Robert figured the best way to distract himself was to engage in some small talk, so he did just that. "How long have you been working at Gambit's?" He asked the female tender.

Sentry managed to smile just a tad in response to her assuring tone, "I'm more worried about the people that would come after me.." He paused for a moment to take a swig of his tea, having stopped his mad scratching at the table. By now Robert had scratched a straight hole right through the wood. "I arrived in town today actually, I heard about this bar so I thought I would check it out.. My name is Robert by the way." He replied while keeping his eyes on the girl, thinking it was rude to look away when talking to someone. There was something about her, she seemed to help him calm down.. the voice in Robert's head spoke up less and less often.

"How about you?" He asked, "You seem like quite a nice.. elf." He couldn't help but overhear the shadow entity's dilemma, perhaps he could assist? Even though he was mentally unstable, he still was registered as a genius.

"I'm guessing some sort of cosmic entity, or the embodiment of darkness itself. Probably accompanied with self sustenance, weakness to intense light.." Robert cupped one hand over the other, quickly circling his thumbs around one-another.

Caught a glimpse of the man that took a seat a few chairs down from him, though he didn't pay much attention to him. He did note however that he had access to some teleportation technology, or power. "It's quite alright," Replied the golden-haired man as he shook Fedelia's hand, "I enjoy a woman with a feisty side to her, makes things interesting."

To think that his life wasn't interesting enough, but Robert couldn't help it. This particular persona was a natural charmer, it was in his DNA. Many wondered what had caused this dramatic split in his mind, perhaps it was the very serum that granted him with his powers? Who knew. He only wanted to learn how to fix his fragmented mind.

Robert was sitting comfortably in the safety of his home watching his stories when the image of a woman appeared on the screen. Looking at it, He could tell that she had to be of some importance, what with her business attire and the fancy office she sat. She announced herself as Fatin Alfarsi, acting president of Terra. Interesting name.. thought Robert as he played with his hands.

He could tell that she was serious, and he started to see the gravity of the topic at hand as her announcement progressed. Aschen and Taiyou.. He had heard a little bout them, and the conflict they were caught up in. Oppressive invaders from another world, something along those lines. He didn't really get wrapped up in politics too much.

These beings pose a threat..

For once the little voice in his head was right. What with the recent invasion of parts of the city by those undead.. things, he was thinking of relocating to a less violent area.

You have the power to end this all, think of the lives you could save.. It's only a matter of time until it all comes crashing down on your head.

Robert shook his head, trying his best to ignore the thoughts that Void was suggesting. He wanted to help, but he couldn't risk loosing control again.. putting the lives of everyone around him in danger. He couldn't risk it, not again..

But perhaps there was something he could do! Robert had almost forgotten that he possessed one of the most advanced minds in history. He could offer his services without fighting, and that's just what he'd do. The golden-haired man stood from his seat, picked up his phone and car keys, and headed out the door.

Once behind the steering wheel, Robert let out a gentle sigh before putting the car in drive and pulling out of his driveway. A quick search on his I-Phone let him pull up the location of The Palace, thus beginning his voyage.

#, as written by Saarai
Stryfe barely had a chance to start clearing the cameras and other equipment out of her office when the Aschen responded to her broadcast with slander and blatant lies. Stryfe and Sonia watched as President Kane spoke for what was maybe the second or third time, Sonia rolling her eyes at what she was hearing.

The film crew bringing back any equipment they'd need for another live broadcast. Stryfe was serious about this, and it's not like the crew was going to reject more money.

"They can't be serious." The British woman said to Stryfe, "Our rap sheet, their rap sheet, speaks for itself. We've lost friends and family to them." Sonia said to Stryfe, "Reconsidering your thoughts on my weapons program?" Stryfe asked, raising an eyebrow. "I admit... I'm a little afraid, paranoid. The Aschen have done more bad than good for this planet or us, and their words now will surely mean fighting with them." Sonia said.

"I don't agree with what you want me to do, but I understand why you want me to do it. I'm giving you an ultimatum though. If this program isn't over by the end of August I'm leaving the Invictus." Sonia informed Stryfe, "I understand, I can't promise you anything. But, I will try to convince you to stay." Stryfe said.

"If you're not staying to watch the broadcast, tell Natasha I'm giving the order to allow our possible allies to land on the rooftop helipads." Stryfe told Sonia, "I'll relay the message." Sonia said, turning to head to the exit. "And, Sonia, we'll miss you. Think about us before you make your decision." Stryfe called out to the British scientist.

"We're ready." The director told the Invictus leader, Stryfe's eyes watching Sonia as she left the room. "Let's get to it." Stryfe said, taking a seat at her desk once again.

"Rolling in three... two..." The director gave Stryfe her cue, the red light flashing to confirm that she could speak her mind to the world, to the galaxy, maybe even the universe if it took an interest to what was going on in this small patch of it.

"I've already spoken to you all." Stryfe began, "After I did the Aschen leadership, in typical fashion, responded with lies, slander, and what I believe is yet another plot to take control of Terra." Stryfe said, "They say I and the Invictus don't have experience in politics."

Stryfe lifted her sleeve, sliding it up her arm. She tapped lights that seemed to be shining beneath her skin, a holographic screen shooting up to show a long-haired Arab man in military garb. "This is Kroger ibn Haggai, my father, my adoptive father. Former president of Saudi Arabia after elections." The woman said, waving a hand at the screen to display another image.

This image this time was of an white man with short-blonde hair, he himself donning military clothing. "Patrick Horne, deceased, former Prime Minister and former President of the Irish Republic." The Invictus leader said, moving her hand to show yet another image. This time of a dark-skinned woman with brown hair.

"While she isn't a politician, she has experience. This is Sonia Hughes, arguably one of my best friends, a scientist and former SIB agent. She's worked alongside members of the British Empire for years before she joined us and during her time with us. And she's a genius. Smarter than I'll ever be."

With the tap of one of the lights the holographic display disappeared.

"The Aschen speak of their losses 'liberating' Terra. What about your losses when they were the invaders? When they were the menacing empire? What about my friends, my family, Terran and non-Terran alike, dying in the fight against them?" Stryfe asked, "Do our losses, your losses, mean less to the Aschen?" Stryfe asked, speaking to the general population of Terra and all those who fought against the Aschen in the past.

"Hakim Mustafa, my second cousin from my mother's side. He died fighting the Aschen during one of their earlier invasions. I hate them for it. Not just for him, for others, I resent them. I don't hold any love for them. I can't act against because there are rules in place in the Invictus." Stryfe explained, "Despite this.." She continued, pausing for a long while.

"I forgive them." She said, "And I forgive for their lies about me and my people wanting to take over Terra. I don't want to, we don't want to, unlike the Aschen we're doing this for no gain. We didn't ask for money, or land, or this, or that. We chose to do this, I chose to do this." The Invictus leader informed the masses.

"A lot of people might not know this, but I've decided a long time ago that I don't want anything to do with the politics or leadership of this new, reformed government after it's in full swing. I don't want political power, I don't want to make laws. I want to create a better place to live, do business, raise children." Stryfe said.

"If I do not give up any amassed power immediately upon election of a prime minister or other authority figure for Terra, I will step down as head of the Invictus. I give all Invictus watching a clear and direct order to remove me from power in conjunction with the Terran military and law enforcement."

"And, to the Aschen, to the Taiyou, I forgive you. You have nothing to fear from me unless you attack me, my people, or Terra. And even then I will forgive you. But, in the same vein, I and others will remember you. We won't, we have not, forgotten the past as easily as you have."

"I forgive you for that as well."

With those last words the broadcast came to an end and Stryfe let out a huge sigh. "I'm taking a trip." She said as she stood up from her desk, "Where to?" The director asked, "I heard Shintenchi is nice, Langara too." The Invictus leader answered.

"One or both of those is suicide." The director.

"No, my pale-faced friend, murder if anything happens to me."

The sound of screeching tires could be heard as a sable Porsche Carrera GT came to a stop in the Invictus' courtyard. The door swung open, and out-stepped Robert in sleek business attire. Upon closing the door behind him and locking his car, the hale fellow quickly made his way toward the entrance of the facility.

Once inside he approached the brunette seated behind the lobby desk, tapping on the counter-top to get her attention. "Yes I'm here to see one Fatin Alfarsi, I believe should would be interested in hearing my proposal."

Although obviously flustered by the man's good looks and general swagger, the concierge denied his request, stating that "Ms. Alfarsi isn't accepting guests at this time." Apparently she didn't know who he was, which didn't surprise him. Robert had just dropped off the map years ago, and was just deciding to throw himself back into the working world.

Sonia stepped out of the elevator with the gold colored doors, glancing around the lobby as she spoke into a communication device. "Natasha, Fatin said to allow the Joes to land on the roof. She'll be getting to them soon." The woman said, "Understood. Going to contact them now." Natasha responded.

Sonia caught sight of the man who had entered, raising an eyebrow at his presence. "Can I be of any help?" The Englishwoman asked as she approached Robert, "You don't seem like you're here to rent a room or put in a job application. I can tell, I used to be a cop, basically. Military police, actually." Sonia told the man.

"Oh I'd love to hear about your life so long as it's over dinner." Robert cracked a smile as he turned just a tad face the woman that addressed him, instinctively extending his hand to shake.

"Hi I'm Robert Reynolds, I saw Ms. Alfarsi's broadcast on the television not too long ago and felt that I should offer my services." Rob took a moment to smooth out his suit and folded his arms behind his back. Military eh? Interesting.

"What branch of the military were you in?" he asked.

"Sonia Hughes." The woman introduced herself, taking Robert's hand in her own to shake. "Army. I was technically infantry while part of the Royal Military Police." Sonia told Robert.

"What services can you offer, Mr. Reynolds? We only have your word, for now. What can you actually do?" Sonia asked, "We could use as much help as possible keeping Terra out of the hands of those who would rather conquer and dictate."

"Well let's see.. genius level intellect, adept in mechanics, architecture, machinery, tracing energy sources, cybernetics, robotics and computer science." he replied, "Oh and I have the power of over a million exploding suns at my disposal."

He raised his arm to cough into the nape of his elbow. His smiled broadened as he waited for the woman's response.

Yuri received the comm from the Invictus to land on the roof and guided the chopper down landing on one of the helipads. "General Lavanding clear you're clear." He said with his Russian accent seeping through only slightly.

Dave Allen unfastened his belt and swung open the helicopters door, as he exited the aircraft onto the roof. With him he held a small brief case and he had his single pistol holstered on the opposite hip.

Will sighed as Allen left to go to the meeting so he unbuckled and pulled down one of the small tables. "Hey Yuri wanna have a little wager?" He Asked as he removed a pack of cards and a box of cigars from his pack. The Russian only smiled before getting up to join him in a game of poker.

Natasha and several Invictus soldiers met the Joes on the roof, waving them over to the doorway they just stepped out of. "I'm Natasha Zolner, I'll be your guide down to Fatin's office." Tasha told the men, "Follow me." Natasha told the Joes, gesturing for them to follow her into the building.

Down in the lobby Sonia listened to Robert speak, "You can probably help on two fronts..." She told the man, "I've been needing people to test some experimental tech, people who aren't... squishy." The Englishwoman told Robert, "I could also more brains down in the labs. And... with your power, if anything goes south we can always throw you into the battle to handle it."

"What are your abilities, if I may?" Sonia asked the man, gesturing for him to follow as she walked away towards some seats in the lobby. "Like, how do you harness that power? Energy dispersion? Strength? Telekinesis? Psionics?" Sonia asked as she sat down, the scientist in her taking an interest in the man and his power.

Nina approached Gabriel and his men at the gate, gesturing for the other Invictus to let them through. "It's all Gucci." Nina told Gabriel, "You probably don't remember me. We met once in Gambit's." Nina told the man.

"Anyways, The Big Kahuna's up in her office, there are others showing up to meet with her as well, but she can speak to you all the same time. I think that was the plan in the first place." The Serbian-American soldier explained to Gabriel.

Will placed down his cards as he heard the squeal of the motorcycle. "Somethings up." He said to Yuri from the roof as he looked around for binoculars. He reached over and looked down as he noticed a limo pull up and a man escorted inside. "More guests I'm starting to wonder if Allen might need some back up in there..." He muttered as he holstered his pistol and straightened out his uniform to look presentable Yuri threw on his flight jacket and zipped it up.

Both men exited the Chopper and jogged to meet Allen and the other Invictus at the stairs.

Allen watched with a raised eyebrow as Will and Yuri joined him but shrugged it off, though he was sure nothing would go wrong it never hurt to have a few extra pairs of eyes and ears around. "Thank-you Ms. Zolner." Allen said as the trio followed her into the building.

Robert nodded to her request and sat in a seat next to Sonia. "Well you see, the same Super Soldier Serum used on Steve Rogers was later made thousands of times stronger." He explained.

"I stumbled upon this serum in a lab thinking it was drugs, and when I took it, I was transformed." He had no shame in his past, and often spoke of it openly. "Strength, speed, photokinesis. There are too many powers to list."

Though he hoped that a situation that required him to use his powers never arose, for fear of losing control again. "Though they come as a double-edged sword." Robert continued, "You see, using the upper limits of my powers causes a.. malevolent persona takes control of me.

"Nina?..." Mr. Ereb pondered for a moment. "Nina... Nina.... Ah, yes! Nina! The young lass from the Invictus group that patrolled the bar on occasion. Yes, I remember you. How have you and your posse been? I presume by 'Big Kahuna' you mean Miss Alfarsi. Very well, my associates and I shall remove ourselves to there post-haste!"

Mr. Ereb made his way through the building, flanked by the two Alpha Troopers, and eventually came to the door of Stryfe's office. Agares, the Alpha Trooper with the katana, knocked on the door.

"I see. I hope you can keep that in check, or at least maintain a balance when using your abilities. I've seen people like you, people with abilities. Calm like the rest of us, but there are things that set them off. PTSD, women being hurt, jabs at their egos." Sonia told Robert.

"Do you have a big ego, Robert? I ask because the Invictus pride themselves on no one person being bigger than the group." The Englishwoman said, "But, in this case, in the case of Terra, no one person is bigger than the planet. If you have a big ego, Robert. I ask you now, check that shit at the door or get out."

Natasha lead the Joes down to Stryfe's office soon after Gabriel arrived, the door swinging open to reveal Anodyne. The woman, clad in her usual orange armor and black jumpsuit, stepped aside for Gabriel and the others to enter.

"Please, take a seat." Stryfe said to Gabriel and Dave, gesturing to the two chairs in front of her desk. The Invictus leader leaned back in her own seat, watching everyone who entered the room who wasn't one of her people. Taking in as many details about them, where they stood, how they stood, how they walked.

"Let's get down to business, shall we?"

"I was never one to be hubris." Robert shook his head. "Many have gotten themselves killed because of their pride, or put others in harm's way. I don't intend to cause either of the two."

Robert folded one leg over his knee as he sat, glancing at the watch worn around his wrist. Wonder what's taking here.. Twas more than likely that she was already in a meeting. After all, the broadcast appeared on all working Terran stations. He expected more people to show up, honestly.
