"Out of da-- OUT OF DATE?!?!?" Neville is at once horrified, angry, shocked and hurt. If there's one thing nerds hate, it's being corrected. And if there's one thing they love, it's always being right. But soon his expression is changed to a determined, frantic one, as he begins hammering away on his keyboard. "Wait... medical supplies, biological implants, genetics laboratories recording missing fish DNA... YOU'RE RIGHT!!! Villain Chatter in some of their local haunts are suggesting that Barracuda's gone... Bio-Freak!" He's stunned and impressed. "Where did YOU hear that kind of information?! You're a geneticist, obviously- do you guys have your own backlogs?"
"There's been no visual indications of what's been done, but all the evidence suggests he's modified himself into some kind of fish-monster. Well this changes everything- if you guys encounter him, PLEASE give me a full update on his appearance, powers, characterization and exactly how much it hurts to be punched or bitten by him. I REALLY need to have my bio finished and produce a completed statline" he pleads.
(OOC: was gonna make that a surprise, but I forgot I gave y'all that info beforehand. So now it's a character point that Maki knows stuff that Neville hasn't heard yet, lol)
"If you guys want to investigate the scene of the crime, that works, but I'm also hearing of a renewed push for membership in the group" Neville goes on. "There's rumors of a new supervillain hangout near the docks, and it's generally accepted that recruiting is nearly always done via these pop-up shops. Given that they're recruiting total Jobbers like Barracuda and Sawfish, I can't imagine they're being overly picky- it's entirely possible they'd attempt to recruit just about anybody with the right gimmick- even some without! Blue Shark used to be 'The Blue Bomber' before they abruptly changed her gimmick, after all."
"Huh- with a roster our size, we can cover both avenues pretty well, I think" Maynard interrupts. "What do you all think?"
"I will, of course, be taking notes on every specimen of interest I come across. I am always willing to exchange information." She stands up. "A supervillain hangout sounds fascinating, but if I am to have everyone's gills ready for tomorrow I will be busy working tonight. Tomorrow I would be happy to create a suitably aquatic form and pay it a visit. But I am not an actress! Someone else will have to continue doing the talking for us. This is assuming you don't finish everything tonight while I am working. If you do, well, congratulations everyone, and your gills will be ready if you ever need them again."
