Eldrich would have effects, but I always assumed he was much like Doctor Strange, his adventures are important but largely unknown to the world at large.Davies wrote: ↑Thu May 11, 2017 2:12 amI was definitely going to have as many of you as possible guest star in the episode where Zalman was resurrected. The endgame for the series was, of course, the downfall of the Grant administration and possibly Taurus losing control of the Labyrinth (to whom, I'm not sure.) I was also going to do some stuff with Backlash's legacy and Minobu's connection to the Heralds. The only thing that I definitely remember was going to happen by the end of the first adventure was the report of the death of Duncan Summers, which was going to be the trigger for Charlie to start making her way back to Freedom City from her most recent sojourn away. (I honestly think Duncan's death would shake the setting up far more than Eldrich's would.)
Somebody like Duncan (I assume) would be far more involved in the world and the community, and their loss could be felt a lot more.
There were a few interesting things going on there. The most noticeable reveal was that Doctor Metropolis was the new Director for Project Freedom.
Doctor Metropolis did seem to show some interest in the Project in the first game, seeming to have met with the A Team a few times and taking a liking to them. Specifically he seemed to take an interest in Rachel's powers...
Huh. Just had a crazy weird thought. Probably nothing. Carrying on.
Anyways, it does explain why Rachel's still on the team, and possibly why her not so secret relationship with Zane was tolerated. I'm now I'm wondering if Zane knew, if Doc simply thought it was best for Rachel, or if it was simply the least disruptive effort to just let him have a job (since he wasn't just going to go away).
I'm also presuming that the teams lower power level was an attempt to operate in plain sight without being a large enough threat to draw the attention of the Labyrinth.
The last B team was getting a lot of attention due to the power and feats they were pulling off, but then Wainwright was looking for an army to take on Omega.
Hrm... Wonder how Savant survived his attempt to work with the Grant Administration. I can't imagine he didn't start getting too close to knowing too much.
I doubt he's dead, he's like a roach that way.
