Out of the corner of his eye, Dave saw Alex slip Maggie something. Something small, easy to miss. A pill perhaps. Which led to the question, of just what was it that he's trying to slip?

He could draw attention to it from everyone with something like 'Hope you have enough for the whole class', but doing that would just him on the man's bad side. That still left him out of the loop on just what the pill was about, yet maybe he could get that information a more inconspicuous way. Might still get him a dirty look, but at least their handlers would be left in the dark for the time being.

The man approached casually at an angle making it seemed like he was more interested in going back to the breakfast table for seconds then he was for conversation. Instead of just passing them by without nary a thought however, he instead gave Red a low whisper without pausing in his pace. "Passing notes in class are we?" His eyes, visible to just him alone, darted down to Maggie's hand before refocusing on the table.

At the breakfast foods again, he picked up a piece of bacon and helped himself.

Looking directly at Dave,he couldn't tell if Alex was irked or not as he replied
'Something like that.You could call it a short term cure for a bad stomach...'
He then went back to seeing to Maggie's apparent plight......

Felicity treats Dave to a mischevious smile. "Natural luck you say? Want to test it against mine some time?" Cat winks and slides the clip back into her pistol. She could be a show off, but she figured actually firing the weapon inside would be a quick way to find out what these tattoo brands did and she could do without experiencing whatever it was first hand.

"I'm on a five year long winning streak so far. Close call the first few times, but it get's easier with practice." Dave said, in a tone that doesn't seem to reveal just how serious he might've been.

Yamada Genki was now to everyone a man of few words, be it by his intrinsic cultural ascendance, the fact that he was a much more grown up man than everybody else, or the language barrier. The time he has already spent in this time had shown him imagery far beyond what he could have expected back in his time, But still flying armour that dons itself on the body, or flowing metal clothing, he had never seen. He simply said "Mahoo de gozaru ka..." In an inquisitive tone, as when you asks something to yourself just to make sure you understand what's going on. Still if he was surprised his still, dead fish eyes didn't show it.
When presented with a simple small box with his name written in kanji, "鬼" he made a short smile. Even here in this time of monsters and magic, they still called him demon. He took some pride in it as he took out the plain white yukata, a katana, a long Yumi and arrows. There were also tatami sandals which he put on immediately. He took the test of the stuff behind the blinds, and a few seconds later, what could only be described as an original samurai walked out. The sword hanging low from his hip, the bow across his chest. The arrows where on the thin quiver also hanging low from his hip opposite to the katana. He remained, of course, silent.

Madame Curare

Curare paid little attention to the others as she opened the single box marked with her prisoner number. She stripped off her prison orange without a hint of self-consciousness or care...

“Kunai, nunchaku, qipao, overcoat, breeches, gloves, mask.” she compared the contents to the manifest on the box. She remembered exactly what she’d been carrying the night the Raven had finally captured here. There should be 4,500 mg of curare, liquid and gel,1,500 mg of powered cyanide, 1,500 mg of aerosolized cangitoxin. Plus assorted needles, syringes, and other application methods. Also, $750 in mixed American and Canadian currency. Curare hadn’t really expected to get any of that back. The Raven probably hadn’t even turned it over. “At least my hat didn’t get squished.”

Maggie winces as each of his words were like a finger in an open wound.

Nearly Everyone has finished dressing before Maggie musters a response. "I can.... be better." she says faintly and closes her eyes. "I can be good."

There's a tremor that goes through Maggie's body, a shiver that has nothing to do with Jen's cold. Maggie's blond hair fluffs as if a puff of wind or a brief dischanrge of static electricity had coursed through it. The nearby Alex and Dave can feel a sympathetic shiver go through metal they are wearing or carrying. The worry lines in her forehead smooth out. Her face muscles tighten and tone. Nearby, the suit coils in on itself twisting like an ouroboros to rub the fleck of blood-dust off itself. Then as fast as a striking cobra it envelopes Maggie, slithering over her orange jumpsuit and becoming skintight. It's impossible to tell for the naked eye how the suit could fit over her, (though buzzbomb, with rapid time sense, can see clearly the suit break apart to encompass her then seamlessly meld back again). The suit lifts her up with a visible aura of her signature red-purple. A completely useless cape flares out behind her on a wind of ions responding to Maggie's thoughts.

Image
Sigh, no one get excited, I only look the part of a bada$$. Buzzkill Barbie is still in the driver's seat.

Maggie's eyelids, covered by a film of her magenta mask that adheres like a dusting of make-up, shoot open, initially showing white, it takes a moment for her pupils to roll into view and she focuses again on the room and those around her.

"Let's do this." she says as she smiles.

Her hands drop to a nearly concealed set of pockets, securing the pill Alex slipped her, the only concession that she'd even been aware of that interaction. Oh C'mon, haven't we learned not to take unknown drugs from guys we barely know. That's like, Ladies 101, A Modern Guide To Not Waking Up Naked in a Dumpster.

Buzzbomb
HP:1; LP: 1; Condition: Ready

She wasn't really paying that much attention to the others, and their various shenanigans- she was looking at the box. Or rather, the sizeable box and accompanying poster tube, both labeled with her name.

Not exactly what she was expecting, to say the least. But she knew what they contained. She just wished that she knew what it meant, right now.

In the confined space of the room, the time it took her to move to the box and scoop it up was almost imperceptible.

Back in her corner, she popped the long cardboard tube open, and shook out the contents. Yep, one titanium baseball bat, painted flat black. It went back into the tube. The box popped open easily as well.

The top layer was what she had been expecting- the clothes she had been wearing when she was arrested. They had been laundered, of course, but were otherwise untouched. The contents of her various pockets were bagged and tagged- except there was no phone, no money, no ID. Of course. She laid that stuff aside for the moment, and scooped out the rest of the contents of the box.

One sleek black bodysuit, jet black with screamingly bright yellow accents- like warning signs, or the yellow-and-black markings of a bumblebee. It looked impressive, that was for sure, like a real super-villain ought to. But she hadn't worn it more than a handful of times, and she certainly hadn't been wearing it when she had been arrested. To be honest, she hadn't even been sure where this outfit had ended up...

Which, of course, led to the next question- where had THEY gotten it from? And the one after that- was this a message of some sort?

Because, of course, she knew where she had obtained it in the first place- it had been a present, of sorts, when she had done her apprenticeship with the Masters of Speed. Something to make her feel more like one of the team. It hadn't worked, not really, and the whole experience had ended SO badly.

All of that wondering, though, was for another time. Now she had to get ready for this- well, call it a mission. With these people that she didn't know, or trust- and a magical barbed wire noose around her neck. No problem.

Getting changed didn't take long- into her clothes, not the gaudy/impressive super suit. With all of the other stuff going on, it was likely that nobody even noticed- and if they did, modesty was an early casualty of any kind of incarceration. While all the other foolishness was still underway, she was finished- though she looked more like a bicycle courier than a super-villain. Lightweight black sneakers, little more than padded socks. Close-fitted cargo shorts over running tights. A black mesh vest with a bunch of tiny pockets, over a close-fitting black tee shirt. And a pair of black aviator goggles, currently pushed up over her forehead. Stowing the still-mostly-full box and poster tube back on the cart, she started tucking her other stuff into the pockets of the vest- including what looked like a half-dozen golf balls...

Everyone:

Once it is clear that everyone has changed into their "working clothes" and have made whatever preparations they needed to be ready to go Wainwright nods her head to the guards who escort the nine of you down another hallway where you find an AEGIS Chariot, a flying transport the government sponsored agency regularly uses.

Wainwright hands over a small black bag to Madame Curare. "Mission bag; pictures of Mr. Bailey, his empowered form as well as non-powered. There's also a map of the area you're heading to, the circle on it encompasses what AEGIS has determined to be his "stalking grounds" with the red dots marking the locations where he encountered campers and hikers. The handheld radio is to contact your extraction team once you've captured Mr. Bailey."

Inside the craft the group finds a three man flight crew along waiting for everyone to take a seat. For those among you that need mundane items, such as Cat Noir's gun ammunition, find it waiting to be claimed in one of the several seats in the vehicle. Once eveyrone has taken a seat the flight crew waste no time in starting take off routine and within minutes the Chariot takes flight. It is a surprisingly smooth flight, and seems to be moving much faster than one would expect given the fact you're traveling through civilian airspace, but since it's a government ship it's not surprising to most of you that they're willing to break the rules they expect everyone else to follow.

After only about an hour and a half, the voice of one of the flight crew comes over a hidden speaker. "We're almost at the drop off, now's the time for any final preperations you need to make. We can't land to unload you; so we'll be hovering over the tree line, a few stories high." The man's tone is so calm that you get the impression that he's been told how you make it down is your problem and totally not his in any way.

A few minutes later the voice returns. "We've arrived." He says matter-of-factly as the door opens on its own, likely thanks to a mechanism being controlled by the flight crew. "Everyone out."

During the ride out,Alex started checking his gear&thinking of 'their' options.If(and that's a large grey IF) they manage to work together and take Bailey down,what then?Turning him over to a Government Agency known(at least in his circles)for suppression of the truth and heavily into experimentation involving Mind Control/Brainwashing?That would make him into a hypocrite and Traitor to the cause.But then,Maggie obviously needed someone inside the group to help her to break their control....

His thoughts were interupted by the pilot informing them of their arrival.Getting close to his 'Magnetic Angel of Wrath',Alex places a gauntleted hand on ger shoulder as he says quietly
"Remember my Angel,stay close to me for i may not be able to keep you save otherwise..."
Alex then practically falls out of the plane,using his cape as a really short parachute,landing gracefully in a short crouch position with his Gas Pistols drawn to either sides.....

Madame Curare
Image

Curare spent most of the ride to the drop zone in quiet contemplation. Replying to any attempts at a conversation with a few curt words and a cold stare. She reviewed the “mission bag” they’d been given, but the intel was sparse... Her mind wasn’t really on it.

She’d have to make an escape, obviously, as she refused to remain under the control of Wainwright or the incompetent American government for long. On the other hand, she had been out of “the game” for a spell, there was a new generation of self-proclaimed heroes out there. The political lines were different now. No more Soviets, the old turf wars between the east and west that had been such a reliable source of work weren’t there anymore... Yes. We’ll need to play nice with Wainwright for a few years. Learn the new landscape. Then we’ll go.

Next thing you know, the transport was over the drop zone... And the frat boy decided to jump out first.

“<My dear Tsalmaveth, if would you be so kind...?>” as Curare asked, in flawless Hindi, she held out her hand to the shadow manipulator. Like a debutante waiting to be escorted onto the dance floor.

"Looks like you're the team leader. No complaints on my end." He commented initially, when the Madame received their briefing. Receiving nothing much in return, the man settled for leaning back and sneaking a peak of the documents through the metallic reflection of Maggie's suit. Already she was proving to be a very useful member of the team, yet Alex's obsession with her had him on edge. Unless he was ignorant of the psychopathy she committed before whatever barely-legal treatment she likely received, he had to be aware that everyone on this transport, himself included, would be among the first deaths in her latest spree. Which made that pill he slipped her all the more concerning.

“<My dear Tsalmaveth, if would you be so kind...?>”

A jolt went up his spine as if he'd touched a live wire, hearing a language he hadn't used since he was a child. One of the few parting gifts his mother had left him. They had only sparingly used it since the deaths of their parents, English having overtime becoming the household staple without a third party to talk too. Being spoken now out of the blue gave him a swath of memories he'd long since considered forgotten.

"<Neat how you picked that up.>" Dave underplayed, hiding his surprise behind a cool facade. "<Would've expected Hebrew if nothing else. I've always been more Jewish then I was Indian.>"

Taking her hand with his, the darkness under their feet grew deeper and more pronounced. Curae would feel her entire perception of reality suddenly tear to shreds in an instant as the membranes between realities grew suspect, time and distance becoming meaningless. For that fraction of a second, that single moment, she'd be able to feel herself connect to every darkened corner on Earth. Her entire experience would come to an end so fast that only Buzzbomb would've been able to notice, everything quickly starting to fade as if she'd woken from a dream.

Dave let her hand fall away, taking a step away from the shady oak they'd appeared under. The air smelled wonderful out here. "Can't even begin to explain how great it felt doing that again." He spoke, in English this time. It's simply what he was most comfortable with by this point. "Hope it was as good for you as it was for me."

At last they were on their way. That was really all Jen cared about all the rest would sort itself out as they went.

When the pilot finally announced their drop off point Jen didn't hesitate in the slightest as she leapt out into the howling gale of the rotors with a carefree "WHOOOOOOHOOOO!!"

As she fell the wind blowing through her hair and roaring past her ears she pointed her hands down and let fly with a different howl this time of ice. The ice hit the top of a tree and the push back from the blast slowed her down just enough that she landed right where she was aiming for. Her feet hit the ramp and she slid down it with a merry laugh. one arm flared out to the side for balance and the ice ramp extended down in a spiral as she circled the tree shed chosen before using a bit of an upswing in the ramp to slow her down before the icy ramp came to a halt where Madame Curare and Tsalmaveth were just appearing.

"hehe that was fun." she chuckled happily.
