The Progeny by 12for12.jpg


The Progeny is a super group much in the vein of THE TEEN TITANS and YOUNG AVENGERS. It is usually a bit more light hearted fare with the usual teen angst and melodrama that can sometimes follow. The members of The Progeny fall in the age range from mid teens to young adults and work together to fight city or world threatening terrors all while hoping to get at least a 'B' on their history midterm exam the following day. The team is very much a 'capes and tights' type group like THE PROTECTORS OF THE WORLD and look to gear their adventures towards that type of notion. They do not murder, steal or start crimes... they might, however, skip school once in a while. I mean, someone has to stop Therakiel, right?

We are not freely soliciting applications unless specified somewhere. This policy of 'please don't come to us, we will come to you' is so that the players can focus more on the role playing and less on the 'business side' of handling the super group. The Progeny is comprised mostly of veteran players who are comfortable with each others play style. From time to time open events will occur which anyone can be part of. In the event of an opening, it will be on a public forum for those to look into. This allows players who are not officially part of the team to still join in on the hijinks. We also enlist a 'no alts' policy and soft cap of roughly twelve members so everyone is familiar with the characters and no one feels left out or 'out of the loop' with what is going on.

The Progeny uses the PROTECTORS OF THE WORLD sub forums. To know more about these teen sensations, please click the logo below!

History
FFHISTORYPROGENY.png



YjPROGENYpdb.jpg


The Progeny were formed by a gathering of the old guard of New Vigil alongside new teen heroes who had never worked within a team before. Lash, known as Olevia Alvarez, had chosen to bring together a number of her old teammates for a reunion party. Several of them decided to meet at the downtown teen hotspot known as 'SWING'. As they chatted, little did they know others who possessed special talents were also there. They also could not guess in their midst was an alien princess whose life was in jeopardy as those she associated with attempted to assassinate her. The heroes quickly stepped into action, bringing their talents together in order to defeat an alien militia as well as save the princess. As she departed, the teens exchanged notes and ideas. They realized that they worked well together and the victory would not have had been possible unless they had done this as a single unit. Thus they formed The Progeny, whose purpose was for these young heroes to combat all kinds of menaces they may not be able to individually.

The team was, fortunately, able to bond quickly. The first few weeks were mostly socializing and getting to know each other while fighting petty crimes. They soon found themselves thrust into larger scale adventures, such as saving Westside High School from super-powered gang members. Soon afterward, they took on a new venture and a home of sorts. Arcade - O - Rama, a rundown arcade store set in a five-story building in Westside, was also a fully outfitted underground lair that a villain used at one time. Making it their own, they set out to renovate both it and the store and the area below, turning it officially into their base of operations. They even took in their first additional member, The Silver Scar, a teenage gladiator from another world.

As time has passed, the roster changed as well. Cobalt Crush, Stegoboy, and Maverick left for other ventures while Cait Sith found himself wandering in and out of the Arcade- O - Rama infrequently as he began to explore this world when passage to his own home was lost. Others found themselves welcomed into the family of heroes in their stead. Some included the Templar Faith, the quirky Communick and even the return of former New Vigil member Luctus to the team. HexBane stepped out of the shadows and was inducted into the team's membership, quickly cementing herself as a central figure for this new iteration of the Progeny. Their challenges grew as well, from small crimes in Westside to actually being forced to confront the sorceress Salei, who wielded powers of the gods themselves. The team managed to overcome against this powerful foe, but it came at the cost of the lives of two of their own: Heartbeat and Kl'vin.

The deaths of their teammates hit the Progeny hard, threatening to split the group as each member came to grips with the losses. Ace disappeared and Faith suffered a crisis in her beliefs, while other members simply withdrew from one another trying to cope. But the group's resident "brobot" and new member Deviate fought hard to keep everyone's spirits up. In time, the team came together, stronger in the wake of the tragedy. Together, they managed to save Lash when she was taken by former teammates of the previous Longwang, and in turn helped to reaffirm her wish to be a hero again. Terrific Tiger - grandson of the original namesake - joined, helping to breath new life into the group. With their new resolve and stronger bonds, the teens were able to come together to take on the threat of a gang of supernatural vampires, the Men in White, and the powerful vampire Kostadin the Black.

The Progeny have their sights set high and continue on as heroes within Millennium City, ready to carve a name for themselves next to their adult contemporaries.



Arcade-O-Rama
FFARCADEPROGENY.png



Arcadeorama.jpg


The team began its first few weeks spending far, far too much time at Darren's Pizza near downtown Millennium City. It was the 'go to' spot for many of the Progeny and the de facto headquarters, for lack of a better place. While it was good for them to have a place to unwind, it was also unhealthy to eat that much grease and the owners were not fond of Kid Ballistics's insistence at showing off his new weapons every time he arrived. It was quickly realized by some on the team that a place with a bit more permanence was required.

Progenytrans.png

The team has ended up utilizing ARCADE-O-RAMA as their base of operations. Popular in the 1980s, it fell into disrepair after the Battle of Detroit. It is located in a rougher area of Westside and is in a five story brick building. It was purchased through the city as a joint venture through an invented, third-party identity that does not actually exist except on paper. The inside is partially rehabbed at the moment due to the financial assistance of some of the more wealthy individuals on the team. It contains working pinball machines and arcade games that the public can enjoy and doubles as a 'real' establishment that brings in money. It is a local place for teens to hang out, be safe and socialize. The first two floors are the arcade section. The third floor is a warehouse area for spare games in their inventory or ones broken requiring service as well as an office for the property and business. The fourth floor is home to several studio apartments that the team can use if they desire, though they have not been fully rehabbed. The fifth floor is gutted and was not in use until HexBane and Cait Sith wished to expand it as an area for those with magical abilities could gather... most likely unnerving several members in this revelation, but it has proven to be of value. Currently, the building is 'owned' jointly by the remaining original members: Kid Ballistic, Black Ice, Cait Sith, and Lash.

The lower level is where the team spends most of its time. It is the former lair of the villain known as The Pinball Wizard who was brought to justice by Lash and New Vigil member Whitecloak. Realizing that it was just sitting there, empty, the heroine brought it to The Progeny's attention that it could be used as a base of operations by them. Though it needed a bit of elbow grease at the time, the team agreed on it. The lair is accessible though a side panel off the upstairs first floor gaming room or a tunnel that leads out by the docks in Westside.

Arcade-O-Rama has the following in its lower level:

  • Social Hub. There is a decently sized area where the team can congregate and socialize. An 80 inch flat screen television with sound system gives them a good 'night at the movies' with leather sofas and a love seat. A few newer arcade games have been pulled down here as well so that the team can play games without having to go mingle with others if they do not want to. There is a 'Trophy Room' area located upon its far wall that is a large shelving unit.
  • Living Quarters. There are eight rooms located in the underground area that have been re-purposed as bedrooms. They are not large, about twelve feet by twelve feet each. If there are members who need to 'get away from it all' or just avoid their parents for the time being they can go here. Some members do live here permanently and as such have decorated their room to their own specific taste.
  • Kitchen/ Dining Area. It is mostly just a side galley area off the Social Hub, but its a small area that people can fix food and eat in relative peace.
  • Gymnasium. While not extremely large or state of the art, it allows most members to get a work out in that will be beneficial.
  • Tech/ Science Room. This room is basically for the tech geniuses of the team. It allows them to store, work on and test gadgets and other devices that they may use now or in the future. Several prototypes exist in here in various states of creation. It is decently outfitted and contains several things that mirror the labs in the Millennium City Police Department's Science Division.
  • Computer Hub. An area off of the Social Hub as well, this contains the computer systems that monitor upstairs, the downstairs lair, Millennium City alerts and world wide alerts. There is a system in place that will connect to the MCPD or UNTIL for updates if they are needed. It regulates the functions of the lair and protects the team from intrusions with defense systems.
  • Hangar. This actually is a large area that connects the lower lair of Arcade O Rama with the tunnel system that leads out to the Westside docks. The team stores personal vehicles or items there. A side area somewhat off the hangar has been claimed by Kid Ballistic for his arsenal and is a 'no touch zone' for the other members of the team.
  • Arcane Workshop. This area serves as both arcane storage and workspace for Cait Sith and any other members of the group who need a place for magic workings. It is located in the largest storage section within the hangar. Wards have been placed around the space, making it ideal for the containment and storage of magical items.

The Buster
Ffbusterprogeny.png




Albakittyfinalprogeny.jpg

For adventures both within the bounds of Millennium City and without, the Progeny trust in the Buster, their very own armored personnel transport! Designed, created and funded in secret by team members Ace and Kid Ballistic, this beast of a bus made its debut during the Great Outdoors: Progeny Style when it was used to travel to the team’s campsite.

Though styled after a shortened school bus, the Buster is actually based on a Humvee frame, and its school bus chassis is fully armored and custom machined to fit. The words “SCHOOL BUS” have been cleverly modified to say “ C OOL BUS” on both the front and rear of the vehicle, but otherwise, the Buster appears to be nothing more than a very sturdy short bus.

Currently, there is only one Buster parked in the Arcade’s hangar at any time.

Some of the Buster’s features include:

  • A top speed of 90 mph or 145 km/h
  • Windows enhanced by a glass-clad polycarbonate transparent armor
  • Armor consisting of high-hardened Ballistic Steel armor and Spectra Shield materials
  • 4-Wheel Drive and 4-Wheel Double Wishbone suspension
  • Front and Rear winches
  • Differential disc brakes on all four wheels for maximum control and mobiltiy
  • Runflat devices for continued mobility if tires are punctured
  • Central tire inflation system (CTIS) for optimizing tire pressure on soft ground or pavement
  • Rear exit for emergencies and onload/offload
  • Top port for emergency egress, complete with stirrup mount for spotlight or mounted weapon use
  • Radio and intercom for both interior and exterior broadcast
  • Radar
  • Police Scanner
  • Hidden compartments for weapons, gas masks, food, first aid, etc.
  • Adjustable seats with full safety harnesses
  • Top of the line satellite radio, bluetooth, and CD player
  • Top of the line air conditioning
  • Mini-fridge
  • Cupholders

AceDBed thumbnail.jpg

Ace

Name: Harley 'Ace' Davidson
Abilities: ACE Flight Suit, Genius Intellect, Tech and Gadgets
"Let's blow some shit up."


He's the guy who at the age of 12 built himself his first freaking Jetpack. A true technical genius born and raised in rural Tennessee and damn proud of, it would you ever ask him, he wears the title of redneck as a badge of honor. He might not be the sharpest tool in the utility box and he can come off as a tad unrefined due to his rural upbringing and lack of knowledge about social norms in the big city. Though put him in front of any technical equipment and you'll see the magic happen. All his life he's been tinkering away, building amazingly advanced technological marvels out of any old junk he could find.

This includes, of course, his very first Jetpack. A project for his school science fair, this opened up a whole new world of possibilities for Ace as universities all over offered up a spot for the young genius. He settled for MCU and packed his bags. Of course it didn't take long for Ace to think bigger upon arrival. In a city surrounded by heroes and villains it was only a matter of time before he expanded on his flight suit and took up the mantle himself! Not literally speaking, of course, a mantle together with a Jetpack would not end well... Like, in flames, believe it's true!

More recently, Ace has also been chasing military pursuits.

Black Ice avatar2.png

Black Ice

Name: Oliver Black
Abilities: Chemistry Skills, Cryokinesis, Mutant Physiology, Parkour
"I'm serving only one flavour. And I don't do sprinkles."


Oliver Thomas Black was born in London, England. He lived a typical middle-class childhood in the United Kingdom, until his genetic mutation manifested during puberty and turned his life upside down. Winter came early that year.

At the age of 16 Black filed for emancipation and moved to Millennium City, The City of the Future, in the United States.

Oliver soon found himself using his mutant powers for good, hindering the criminals in his neighborhood. He became known by the alias Black Ice and joined a club of young metahumans and heroes in training, New Vigil. This would eventually lead to him joining his current team, The Progeny, which formed the start of Oliver's career as a crime fighter.

After a funny clip of Black Ice bantering and effortlessly wiping the floor with some painfully incapable bad guy went viral, Oliver received the life-changing opportunity to become a corporate sponsored hero. He decided to roll with it.

Black Ice is currently trying to combine his sponsorship with Good Guise, his chemistry study at MCU and, as of late, dating life with his everyday heroics. A slippery slope, even for him.

EWGcommunick prof.jpg

Communick

Name: Marc O'Neill
Abilities: Vocal Generation/Manipulation of Radio Waves, Power Jump (via Boost Boots)
"This dial is tuned to Justice! ...or something like that."


When Marc O'Neill's latent ability manifested, he thought he had completely lost his voice from a really bad flu, only to hear himself talk over his father's two-way radio! In a chance encounter, the hero Sabotage directed Marc to an acquaintance who fashioned a set of equipment allowing him to harness his voice.
Communick is still a relative novice when it comes to heroics. His powers being ill-suited for direct combat, he ends up taking a more supportive role on missions by acting as a coordinator and moral support.

During the events of Tried and Tested, Marc found himself accidentally injected with a mutagenic serum that temporarily boosted his abilities.

Faith progeny headshot.jpg

Faith

Name: Erin Reyes
Abilities: Divine Healing, Celestial Blasts, Swordfighting
"You shall see the glory of my God not through my words, but through my actions."


Faith is a member of the Modern Order of the Knights Templar, an organization that managed to grow in secrecy after years of persecution nearly annihilated them all. Trained since a young age to use the powers of the divine to heal and protect, she has a drive to help those in need. After years of foreign work -- which took her from the Philippines, then to Indonesia and Sri Lanka -- she's been assigned to train in Millennium City under the tutelage of one of the Order's finest sword fighters in the use of her weapon, Gratia. She now uses her divine powers and growing sword skills to aid the people of Millennium City, and ensure the safety of her teammates.

KBBust.jpg

Kid Ballistic

Name: Sidney Mason
Abilities: Quickdraw, Weapons Expert, Mercenary Training
"There's nothin' loose about this cannon."


Kid Ballistic was raised abroad to be a soldier of fortune, but when his father left him on his own, he came to the United States and became a crimefighter. Raised on a healthy diet of westerns, action flicks, and paramilitary training, this young gun is known for his quick draw, his weaponsmithing skill, and his penchant for collateral damage. For a gunslinger, his aim isn't very good, but "KB" makes up for it by choosing quantity over quality. Why use one bullet when you can use one-hundred?

Though he has a kind heart, it often gets lost in the shuffle between his vices and his personal baggage. But for what it's worth, he has more experience than most of the team combined, and pursues the job full-time, since he doesn't go to school. He helps fund the team's operations (and its pizza consumption) with a small war chest, and can serve as a surprising voice of reason when the going gets tough.

LashMarl.jpg

Lash

Name: Olevia Alvarez
Abilities: Super Strength, Invulnerability, Flight, Magical Abilities
"Do you think this costume makes my butt look big?"


Lash is Olevia Alvarez, possessor of the powers of the Celestial Dragons. Olevia is the resident popular girl and fashionista at Grace Memorial High School. She came to have her abilities purely by happenstance. During vacation to visit the Great Wall of China, she witnessed their national hero, LONGWANG, be murdered by an adversary. Mysteriously his abilities and powers passed into her, granting her great strength. Taking on abilities she never asked for, Olevia nonetheless has made an attempt to do some good with the mystical traits bestowed to her. Try as she might, though, Olevia's skills in wielding them often backfire. A former member of New Vigil and associate of the Young Renegades, Lash now fights alongside the Progeny in order to perhaps better her skills as a crimefghter.

Strong Suit

Name: Teresa Toledo
Abilities: Metal Manipulation, Armor, Genius Intellect
"I've got thick skin."


Terry Toledo is the daughter of 'El Cerebro Ceruleo' and 'Flor de Mayo', members of the 1980s South American super team 'Los Amigos Invencibles'. Born after her family resettled in Millennium City, she was perfectly prepared for when her powers inevitably manifested. At 16, she's developed powerful metal manipulation abilities. However, Terry has never shown much interest in heroics, preferring instead to follow in her father's footsteps as an engineer. Still, things change - when a family nemesis that promises to destroy everything she holds dear arrives in Millennium City, Terry put aside her apathy for capes and tights, and instead obtained the experimental alloys that transform her into Strong Suit.

Terrific Tiger

Name: Hank Alden
Abilities: Metahuman Agility/Strength, Regeneration, Therianthropy (caused by an increase of adrenaline levels)
"Being a hero's a rush!"


Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Hank Alden is the 17-year-old grandson of the first Terrific Tiger (Quimby Williams) and his wife, Jane, Queen of the Jungle (Tabitha Perello). A pretty smart kid, Hank managed to slide by in his freshman and sophomore years at Tigerlily High School. Most of his time was spent in football, where he fought to get promoted from third string to second string on the school’s team. After a fateful game that saw his metahuman powers awaken for the first time (and cause widespread panic in Tigerlily Falls), Hank moved with his grandparents to Millennium City. It was hoped that the boy might live a “quiet” life, removed from the world of superheros and supervillains. Hank, however, had other plans, deciding to join the teenage supergroup The Progeny. What will happen now that Hank has great power and responsibility? Only time will tell.

Born in new Pelham, a community of mutants under Millennium City, Plumb was raised as part of the maintenance crew for the group. She is an extremely dutiful amphibian mutant who loves tinkering with mechanical items. She recently found her way into the Progeny as she assisted several members she encountered in the sewers near her area. She is finally learning more about the world above and contributing in her own unique way. With her trusty rusty robot Bob, she looks forward to helping out the Progeny as much as she can.

Name: Cait Sith
Abilities: Veils, Shapeshifting, Feline Agility and Senses, Spellcasting
"What else would you expect? I am a cat, after all. A talented cat of course, but a cat nonetheless."


Cait Sith is a cheshire cat, the 13th son of a cheshire cat who calls himself the King of Cats. While most of his siblings and family are tricksters in nature, serving as heralds and agents for various factions of the faerie dimension, Cait's whims and desires have him spending most (if not all) of his time in Millennium City. He is the black sheep in his family since he genuinely wants to help people with no strings attached. Playful, curious, this aloof creature has decided that he will put his abilities to good use by becoming a super hero.

Deevs.jpg

Deviate

Name: Deviate
Abilities: Kinetic Manipulation, Style
"Beep boop robot noises!"


Deviate is, to all outward appearances, a robotic being. Standing at least a foot taller than most humans, lanky, rail-thin and with a segmented mechanical body, his is a conspicuous presence. His humanoid frame seems awkwardly proportioned, with long limbs, large hands and feet, and a rather bullet-shaped head. While his towering mechanical appearance tends to draw attention on its own, his sense of style (and the fact that he wears clothes at all) seems to garner still more stares and confusion. He has a fondness for bright colors, graphic t-shirts, and unique headwear.

Having spent the majority of his active existence at the SION campus among metahumans and other sapients with extreme mutations, Deviate has a strong tendency towards unconditional acceptance. Faced with the verbal ferocity with which Deviate will fight against social oppression, injustice, and bigotry, some might call him a social justice warrior. This wouldn't be an inaccurate label. He holds himself and those around him to a high standard of morals and ethics, and is not afraid to speak up for and act on what he feels is right.

  • A Sting for the Swift: The Progeny execute a plan by Kid Ballistic to trap the sinister speedster Quicksable! Masquerading as customers of the National Bank in City Center, the team are ambushed themselves not by thugs in ski masks, but employees of the bank itself! Fending them off, the teenagers corner Quicksable in the bank's vault, and subdue the villain! (- Featuring: Blue Cyclone, Faith, HexBane, Luctus, and Kid Ballistic)
  • The Great Outdoors: Progeny Style!: A simple camping trip becomes a nightmare as a strange woman conjures up a fog and summons a huge horde of giant spiders. The Progeny are forced to split up as three of their own (Faith, Fletcher, and Kid Ballistic) are taken down by the spiders' venom. The majority of the group push forward, where they come face to face with biggest of the spider horde. With teamwork - and a little bit of luck - they manage to take it down. While the rest of the team is off on a rescue mission, Atomix and Heartbeat become engaged in a conversation with the female summoner, who mentions how the group is worthy of "the new age" before she simply disappears. Though the night ends in a victory for the team, there are still questions left unanswered. Just who was the woman? And what did she mean about a new age? (-Featuring: Ace, Atomix, Black Ice, Faith, Fletcher, Heartbeat, HexBane, Kid Ballistic, Luctus, and Silver Scar)

(- Featuring: Atomix, Faith, Heartbeat, HexBane, Kid Ballistic, and Lash with special guest Deviate)
  • The Monsignor and the Progeny: Faith and Kid Ballistic put out a call to the Progeny. The Monsignor (the man who raised and trained Faith) seems to be investigating the woman the group encountered on the camping trip. During the meeting, the woman is identified as Salei, a sorceress who has come into possession of a mask depicting the Great Goddess of Teotihuacan. What started out as a chance to share information quickly turned sour, as the Monsignor essentially shuts the teens out of the rest of the investigation. While it is unclear if this is being done out of a desire to protect the Progeny or if something more is going on, it becomes quite apparent that many members are not happy about this development. (- Featuring: Ace, Atomix, Faith, Heartbeat, HexBane, Kid Ballistic, Lash and Luctus)



The Progeny Missions, 31-45


MISSIONS 31-45


  • A Word of Warning: The group is approached by Ghostbird and members of the Protectors of the World as the teens are wrapping up a skirmish between local gangs in West Side. Though the meeting is initially tense, eventually cooler heads prevail. The Protectors pass along a warning that Salei has the teen heroes in her sights as candidates for her new age. It becomes apparent that perhaps Monsignor Mendoza and Lady Claymore know more than they are letting on. Several theories are floated, but it is agreed that Salei will likely make her big move on the next new moon. This leaves both groups too little time and too many theories to sort through. Both groups agree to keep one another in the loop until Salei is brought down. (-Featuring: Ace, Faith, HexBane, Kid Ballistic and Kl'vin from The Progeny, Jinn, Razira and Sparrowhawk from the Protectors of the World, with Honorary Protector Ghostbird)
ProgenyZear2.png
  • Following Threads: Part 1 - Thomas Masev: HexBane, Kl'vin, and Razira are sent to Mexico City to find Thomas Masev, the archaeologist who found the Mask of the Great Goddess.

The man's journals are collected and sketches on his wall are photographed for more research and analysis. (- Featuring: HexBane and Kl'vin of The Progeny, with Razira of the Protectors of the World)
  • Following Threads: Part 2 - Cecie Horner: Kid Ballistic and Jinn arrive in Libya in search of Cecie Horner. They find the smuggler in a black market pocket dimension known as the Hidden Souq (market). After a tense - and awkward - exchange between Horner and Jinn, they manage to get her to provide further information. It seems Salei was to deliver the mask to her coven, but apparently, after the merchandise exchanged hands, Salei put the mask on. Horner confirms that likely Salei will show up in Mexico City, naming Templo Mayor specifically. She also mentions that the sorceress may choose Teotihuacan itself. (- Featuring: Kid Ballistic of The Progeny) and Jinn of the Protectors of the World
  • Following Threads: Part 3 - Templo Mayor: Sparrowhawk, Extractor, Miss Mime, HexBane, Faith, Kid Ballistic, and Kl'vin are tasked with guarding Templo Mayor, while a second team heads off to Teotihuacan. When the new moon rises, all hell breaks loose at both sites. A swarm of spiders flood the site, overtaking first Kl'vin and then Kid Ballistic. Sparrowhawk and Extractor work together to drive the spiders off, but not before HexBane dives into the swarm to go after her teammates. It seems that Salei has made her play, ejecting Protectors from the ruins at Teotihuacan and spider-napping Progeny members from both Templo Mayor and Millennium City. (- Featuring: Faith, HexBane, Kid Ballistic, and Kl'vin of The Progeny, with Extractor, Miss Mime and Sparrowhawk of the Protectors of the World)
  • Following Threads: Part 3.5 - Millennium City: While other members of the Progeny are off in Mexico, some of those that remained behind in Millennium City decide to spend some time at a fall festival. The fun and games come to a screeching halt as Ace, Atomix, Blue Cyclone, Cait Sith, Deviate, and Lash are forced to face off with a horde of Salei's spiders.

After a series of misadventures just getting to the runway show, they realize there is a job to do as the entire production is nearly shut down by a villain called the Fashion Maven. With a supernatural twist and an army of deadly fabric at his command, all hope is nearly lost until a timely rescue by Kid Ballistic. With all the Progeny on board, they stage an all out assault that saves that day... though unfortunately not Black Ice's clothes (don't ask). (- Featuring: Kid Ballistic, Faith, Black Ice, Silver Scar, Lash and Deviate)
  • Blood and Life - The Gauntlet: In the suspenseful conclusion to the Salei story arc, the Progeny come to and find themselves trapped within a pocket dimension. The teens are forced to fight their way through a labyrinth, while three of their members are afflicted by a spider venom that make them increasingly more aggressive. Once emerging from the maze, the three are compelled to turn on their teammates. It takes the death of one of their own to break them free from Salei's influence, and the sacrifice of another to overcome the witch. HexBane manages to sever Salei's connection with the Great Goddess, shattering the mask and leaving the woman powerless. The Progeny manage to emerge victorious, but it's a bittersweet victory as both Kl'vin and Heartbeat lost their lives. (- Featuring: Ace, Atomix, Heartbeat, HexBane, Kid Ballistic, Kl'vin, Lash, and Silver Scar, with cameo from Cait Sith, Faith and The Peacemaker)
  • Cry Little Sister: As Halloween looms upon the horizon for Millennium City, members of the Progeny find themselves following up reports of several break ins at pharmacies within Westside when they encounter a group of ghoulishly garbed individuals attempting to rob a local pharmaceutical plant. What initially appears to be an attempt by costumed drug dealers to make an easy buck quickly proves to be so much more when it turns out that there's more to the robbers than meets the eye. (-Featuring: Atomix. Black Ice, HexBane, and Moonbeam)
  • Everyone Wants LONGWANG!: When Olevia Alvarez, LASH, is kidnapped by three Chinese heroes with the intent to bring her back to their homeland, the Progeny steps up to stop them!

Upon an attempt to investigate further, they are ambushed by a leather and denim clad man in a cowl, wielding a steel chain. During the fight, it is discovered that the Progeny are dealing with vampires who hae come to free their "brother", who had been arrested at the pharmaceutical plant. (-Featuring: Blue Cyclone. Deviate, Faith, HexBane, and Kid Ballistic)
  • The Return of Miss Majestic!!!: A teenage super heroine shows up at the Arcade-O-Rama claiming to be one of the original team members of the Progeny. The problem is that no one remembers her!

(- Featuring: HexBane, Kid Ballistic, Lash, Silver Scar and Black Ice)
  • Once Upon A Time: Act One - The Nutcracker (Parts 1 through 3): Millennium City is hit by a heavy snowstorm, forcing many of the Progeny to remain in the Arcade-O-Rama until it is safe to get home. As power outages begin to hit the city, they suddenly find themselves trapped in a story. The bratty Narrator responsible for it all seems intent on writing a version of the Nutcracker, starring Erin as Clara, Deviate as a wind-up toy robot, Scar as a Warhammer miniature, Jill as a pull string doll, and Terrific Tiger as a soldier figurine. He also casts Sid, Lash and Ace as the Honor Guard in the mouse army, the infamous Killshot as General Maximouse, the notorious Dr. Kaufmann as the Mouse King, and Janine 'Red' Guiliani as the Mouse Queen. Trapped in the story, and slowly but surely finding themselves being taken in by the narrative, all involved are forced into the pitched war between the Nutcracker Prince's toy army and the Mouse King's army of mice. As the story takes one chaotic turn after another, with people defying their roles, the Narrator becomes increasingly more and more agitated. His plans come to an end when Deviate manages to knock Dr Mouse King's crown off his head, signaling the king's defeat. While questions remain as to who the Narrator is and how he was able to pull off this feat, at least one thing is clear regarding his motivations: a happy - albeit creepy - ending involving Erin.

  • Walking in a Winter WARZONE: Tesseract of the Protectors of the World invites the Progeny to test drive some adjustments she made to one of Captain Adamant's training simulations.

(- Featuring: Deadbeat, Deviate, Fletcher, Minnow, Terrific Tiger and guest starring Tesseract of the Protectors of the World)
  • Sins of the Grandfather: Things have not been good for Hank Alden, a.k.a. Terrific Tiger.

Hank and members of both the Progeny and the Protectors of the World confront his grandfather. It’s Tiger vs. Tiger, with Hank’s membership in The Progeny and more on the line. What is Quimby Williams hiding? What’s up with that metahuman project? And who the heck is Lineage?

MISSIONS 31-45


  • Unchain Me Sister: The shaky truce between the vampires gang known as the Ghouls and the Progeny is seemingly broken when the teens are alerted to a hostage situation at the docks. The cargo ship Demeter, docked at Schreck Shipping has been attacked by none other than the Ghouls. The gang, which authorities believe assaulted the ship sometime after sundown, has taken a number of the crew and dock workers hostage. According to special broadcasts appearing on networks throughout the Michigan area, the hostage-takers have demanded that they will only negotiate with members of the Progeny, and that any interference from local authorities or other organizations will not be tolerated. The situation takes a turn for the worse when it is revealed that the Men in White are not only involved, but had set up the affair as a trap.

  • Once Upon A Time: Act Two - The Sleeping Beauty (Parts 1 and 2): Deviate, Kid Ballistic and Terrific Tiger settle in for a stake out of Hearth & Hearts - a local homeless shelter in West Side - in the hopes of catching Faith's stalker, believing that he is either a volunteer at the shelter or someone who frequents it. With the help of Deviate and Tiger's enhanced senses and Kid Ballistic's connection to workers at the shelter, the three manage to narrow down the man's identity to a volunteer named Ross. Unfortunately, not only do they miss the opportunity to catch him, he also manages to strike yet again, this time trapping Erin in the story of The Sleeping Beauty. A call is put out to the other Progeny about the situation, while Cait Sith goes to the Barlowe Building to seek assistance in the matter. Fahrenheit of the Protectors manages to send Blue Cyclone, Deviate, Kid Ballistic, Silver Scar, Terrific Tiger and himself into the story to find her. The party is forced into a race to reach Erin first, a race which is abruptly ended when an illusion of Salei - cast in the role of the evil fairy Carabosse - attempts to kill them. Some catharsis is had as the witch is cut down and Kid Ballistic saves the girl.

When the Progeny's resident cheshire cat runs afoul of Julian, they are forced to face off with him. Deviate, Faith, HexBane, Kid Ballistic and Terrific Tiger manage to talk Julian down, only for Kostadin the Black to rear his ugly head. The fateful timing of the return of Erin's powers makes it possible to defeat the wicked vampire. Unfortunately, the teens find themselves at the epicenter of a gang riot, stirred up by none other than Dr. Kaufmann. The teens make a break for it, with Killshot and the Doctor hot on their heels. Elsewhere in Westside, Blue Cyclone, Lash, Sublimate and Wildling act fast to rescue police officers caught up in the rioting. They wind up having to go all out to take down a behemoth by the name of Megiddo.

  • Once Upon A Time: Act Three - Swan Lake: Ross L. Meyer, the man who calls himself Herr Drosselmeyer, spins what is to be is final tale: Swan Lake, a tragic story that ends with the two love interests dead. Kid Ballistic, Lash, Silver Scar and Sublimate go on the hunt for the evil Baron von Rothbart, a man who can turn himself into a great beast. They arrive to find Erin being menaced by the shaggy beast... but in a horrible plot twist, it turns out that Deviate is the one who was cast to play the Baron in monster form, and the Erin he is menacing is Odile, the Black Swan. They are saved from having to meet the conditions to end the story when the real Erin takes control, changing the ending so that nobody has to die. The scene ends with Lash bringing the boat where Ross has Erin straight to Kid Ballistic's doorstep.

  • The Siege of Pittsburgh - Road Trip Into The Black: As the siege carries on along the shores of the Ohio, only so little can be done to keep it under wraps. Dark whispers have reached Westside of all too familiar shadowy figures moving in the night of the distant Pennsylvanian city. Remembering all too well the horror brought to their own hometown by Kostadin, the Progeny set out to investigate the happenings in Pittsburgh. Everything goes awry when the Buster is ambushed by one of Kostadin's monstrosities, but the teens manage to survive... only to find themselves in hot water with a mysterious government agency overseeing the operation. (-Featuring: Black Ice, Faith, Kid Ballistic, Terrific Tiger, and Strong Suit)
  • Deck the Halls: It's Christmas time, which means the Progeny members gather to decorate the Arcade-O-Rama as they get caught up on the events of the last few months - including all the mega drama and juicy gossip. Ultimately, it ends up being more about smuggling as much eggnog into the base as superhumanly possible and sampling some of Strong Suit's traditional South American variation of eggnog! (-Featuring: Black Ice, Kid Ballistic, Lash, Strong Suit and more)
  • O Christmas Tree: The Arcade is decorated, save for one important feature: the Christmas tree. The Progeny put up a tree, string the lights on it, and hang some rather unusual (but totally safe) ornaments produced by the one and only Kid Ballistic; homemade decorations fabricated from used up ammunition and grenade shells. The hidden - but not at all secret - stash of eggnog is tapped into again. (-Featuring: Black Ice, Faith, Kid Ballistic, Silver Scar and more)

  • The Kung Fu Wizard: While Olevia explores her superhero identity, the team investigates a Chinese drug ring peddling an experimental power-boosting mutagen.
    • Flavor of the Month: A ritual is initiated to summon and command Longwang - and by extension Olevia. That someone turned out to be none other than Eleanora Russel or Red-Hot, who had apparently decided Lash would be her new (albeit involuntary) 'BFF'. They were going to teach Olevia a lesson together for having the audacity to date -their- Ollie; clearly unaware Olevia and Lash are one and the same person. Her teammates manage to interrupt the ritual, though something seems to be terribly wrong; Lash ends up losing her powers in the process. On the bright side, The Progeny also finds a new ally in the form of Monster Mash! (-Featuring: Ace, Faith, Lash, Kid Ballistic and Monster Mash)
    • Tried and Tested: A new street drug has shown up in Millennium City - a superpower amplifier that, thus far, causes its users to die from their own abilities. The Progeny encounter an alleyway deal between two hooded hawkers and their buyers, who immediately take the untested concoctions for themselves. Chaos ensues as the newly christened Betty Bullets begins shooting at the one of the would be supers with her BB gun, only to have her projectile spray bounce back with twice the force! They then discover the other's latent ability to control dead biomass, causing carcasses to rise from the dumpsters even as he himself begins decaying at a rapid pace. Meanwhile, Communick gives chase to the dealers only to be directly injected with a sample of the mutagen himself! The dealers are eventually arrested and brought in for questioning. (-Featuring: Kid Ballistic, Faith, Communick, Betty Bullets, Starlet, Plumb, with cameo by Black Ice)
    • Trouble is Brewing: Under the threat of ominous, doom-saying fortune cookies, The Progeny press on with their investigation in the recent rise (in both quality and quantity) of drugs in Millennium City. Their curiosity leads them to battle a small army of monkey-style martial artists in an old, drug-filled warehouse on the edge of Chinatown. While the workers set fire to the place, including the evidence, the team is successful in disrupting the drug operation; they round up a dozen Chinese gang members and uncover the alias of the one behind it all. Someone who goes by 'The Alchemist'. (-Featuring: Ace, Communick and Strong Suit)
    • Recipe for Disaster: After reluctantly agreeing to team up with Red-Hot (for the price of one hot date with Oliver, unbeknownst to Oliver himself), the team goes to confront the drug baron known to them only as 'The Alchemist'. Red-Hot brings them to the picturesque Mister Fu's Spice Shop in Millennium City's Chinatown. After an intense boss encounter, the MCPD arrive on the scene... only to find five costumed teenage heroes beating up a tiny old man in his own shop, forced entry included. Everyone is brought in for questioning, but nobody knows whether the evidence against The Alchemist will be substantial enough to hold up in court.

AkinaProg2.jpg
  • A Force to be Reckoned With: The sudden death of a Maniac outside of the Arcade-O-Rama forces the Progeny to protect both themselves and a rather traumatized officer from an incoming army of the deceased's fellow gang members. As they make their retreat, however, the same powerful force that spilled first blood continued to slaughter Maniacs, moving rapidly enough to avoid detection by either the heroes or the lunatics. It's not long before all but the Progeny have scattered, and with the few remaining Maniacs trapped, a tense stand-off with the mercilessly powerful Forcebringer forebodes unpleasant things to come. (-Featuring: Ace, Kid Ballistic, Cait Sith, Black Ice, and Terrific Tiger.)
  • Villains Got Talent: Being alerted of an unusual event through social media, The Progeny end up (fake) auditioning for a villain talent show.

They do not get to advance to the next round, but neither does anyone else. (-Featuring: The Progeny as Agony Inc.; Sky Conquerer, Mantis, Plumberella, Deadheat, Raw Meat and Captain Cock.)
  • Ghosts of Winter Past (Part One): The Progeny respond to gunshots fired at Millennium City Thrift and Exchange, only to find not a gunman but insects.

They manage to find the person controlling the bugs, but the woman gives them a cryptic warning to run just before dropping starting a fire that soon engulfs the entire building. In the aftermath, the Progeny find themselves taking the blame for the fire, earning them the ire of both the public and the media. (-Featuring: Kid Ballistic, Faith, Black Ice, Strong Suit and Terrific Tiger)
  • Ghosts of Winter Past (Part Two): When the Men in White break into a bank and take hostages, the Progeny gear up to respond.

It becomes boys versus girls, as Kelly orders Ace, Black Ice, and Kid Ballistic to fight their teammates...who... also happen to be their girlfriends. (-Featuring: Ace, Kid Ballistic, Dragonfly, Black Ice, Lash and Faith.)
  • Winter Warzone: What Kid Ballistic pitches as a snowball fight out of town becomes a full on war game! After months of preparation, the young gun unveils his winter training course, and pits two teams of three (naturally dubbed "Blue Team" and "Orange Team") in a game of 'Capture the Flag'.

  • Operation: Spring Break: The team heads down to sunny Florida for Spring Break! The trip is part business, as Faith requests help in assistance in completing the mission of a dead colleague, but it's mostly for pleasure. Road trip, poolside hangouts, and beach parties?

  • Reality Bytes!: Plumb discovers one of the Arcade machines had a mysterious call for help on the screen.

  • For Whom The Bell Tolls: Dragonfly, Silver Scar, and Terrific Tiger's patrol through Westside takes a dramatic turn when they arrive at the scene of a building explosion and find Kid Ballistic and Faith injured at the hands of the Men in White's Killshot.

(-Featuring: Dragonfly, Kid Ballistic, Silver Scar, and Terrific Tiger.)
  • Seek and Destroy: The Progeny have to react quickly when Mercy Hospital falls under attack by individuals wearing black and red, similar in garb as Doctor Kaufmann's Men in White.

(-Featuring: Ace, Black Ice, Lash, Terrific Tiger, and Kid Ballistic.)
  • Enter Sandman: As the Progeny fend off attackers at the front of Mercy Hospital, Sid manages to carry Erin to a supply closet to try and wait out the carnage.

Timely intervention from Initiative Black's Warhound and a crack shot from Kid Ballistic puts an end to Killshot's career...permanently. (-Featuring: Kid Ballistic with Killshot and Warhound.)
  • Legacy's End (Prologue): A swarm of what can only be described as man-sized animals - rats, felines, bats, and more - have descended on Chinatown, and appear to heading northward.

And, more importantly, can they be stopped? (-Featuring: Starlet, Plumb, Strong Suit and Terrific Tiger.)

MISSIONS 16-30


  • Ambition's Debt Is Paid: A visit to the City Central Museum of History for information that might help understand what happened with Inge and the Viking's boat takes an unexpected turn, when the museum becomes the latest target in a string of thefts that have taken place across the city. What is even more unexpected is that the perpetrator...is Cait Sith, along with his twin brothers Trygul and Bygul. After a brief, frought scuffle with his (former) teammates, Cait manages to get away with the Book of Leinster. Trygul is the only cat who is captured, but he offers little in the way of explanation as to why the Progeny's longstanding cheshire cat has turned his back on the team.

Instead of a fight, the heroes find traps that had previously been placed dismantled and the thugs on site already subdued by MCPD. The drug is successfully destroyed, and the Progeny are left with a cryptic message in the form of a video featuring snakes eating bats. (- Featuring: Kid Ballistic, Faith, Strong Suit, Feuerdrache, and Dragonfly.)



Enemies
FFENEMIESPROGENY.png



  • Fashion Maven: Allegedly a former fashion designer, Fashion Maven stated he 'made a deal with the devil' to acquire powers. This remains to be seen if this is in fact true, but he possesses several supernatural abilities. His primary ability is that his body is constructed/ composed of an unknown amount of sentient bolts of colored cloth. Each cloth can be used to fly, bind and harm victims as well as possessing the tensile strength of titanium.

  • The Pinball Wizard: Current name unknown. The Pinball Wizard was the original owner of the Progeny's current base. He was supposedly brought to justice by Lash and somehow escaped custody. He returned to discover that the teen group was using his lair for their own purposes and tried to forcibly evict them. He suffered a head wound during the melee which rendered him an amnesiac. The Pinball Wizard displays magical abilities such as matter transformation, duplication, invisibility, arcane blasts and minor elemental control. He typically wears a suit of dark metal armor with a red hood and cloak.
  • Bystryy aka Speedy & Zhidkoye Testo aka The Batter: Two members of the Russian Mafia. While Speedy displays enhanced reaction time and super speed abilities, The Batter wields kinetic properties he can channel through objects to give him enhanced durability, strength and stamina. The Batter can also use his weapon to propel kinetic energy directly outwards if he smashes his bat into something. The duo were brought to the United States in order to kill Kid Ballistic for things both he and his father had done against their crime family. Speedy typically dresses in an all black track suit and has a bald head. The Batter has a buzzed head (black hair) and wears silver shades at all times.
  • The Power Pack: A gang of superpowered criminals who spent their days holding up banks and robbing fancy stores. Consisting of the de facto leader and Cryo-suit wearing Avalancer, the Low-level Speedster and Dynamokinetic Hypercharge, the Pyrotechnician and resident creep Burnout and the surprisingly mellow Metal behemoth known as Powercore. The Progeny first faced off against these while protecting a local jewelry store from being cleaned out, but that will certainly not be the last the Progeny has seen of the nefarious quartet.
  • Trygul and Bygul: Two of Cait's older brothers who originally crossed over from Faerie with a group of frost giants. They cursed Kid Ballistic with a love spell after he insulted them, but the Progeny were able to defeat the Cheshire cat twins and their giant posse. During the course of the fighting, their means of returning home was shattered. The twins agreed to lift the spell, in exchange for their freedom. Now they are roaming the human world, bearing a grudge against Cait and his team. Both twins possess the same skill set as Cait, allowing them to take advantage of shapeshifting, illusions and magical spells, though they certainly outclass their younger brother. Typically seen in cat form only, they look like large domestic cats, with black fur and teal colored stripes. True to Cheshire cat lore, they both bear terribly wide, toothy mouths.
  • Red-Hot: The crazy 'ex-girlfriend' that Oliver never even dated. Red-Hot, her real name is Eleanora Russell, is an international supermodel and superhero, possessing calokinetic powers that her daddy bought for her sixteenth birthday. In truth, she could not care less about helping people and behaves more like a villain. She will stop at nothing to gain the media's attention and views The Progeny, especially Lash, as her biggest competition in the battle for Oliver's affection.
  • Bloodshot: Bloodshot, or The Huntsman as he is also known as, is a ruthless mercenary whose favored targets are mutants. He collects them, hunts them for sport, sells them to the highest bidder or uses them as a resource. The Huntsman has been used as a bogeyman tale for mutants, but it is definitely not a story suited for young children. Bloodshot is known to supplement his arsenal of heavy weapons with power stolen from mutants, by having himself augmented through gruesome surgical procedures.
  • Monsterback: A beast the size of three men, and the strength of ten, "Monsterback" has an appetite for destruction, as well as high-calorie food. His origins are mysterious, but the creature appears to be Bobby O'Hara, a defensive lineman for the Stewartville Giants, who transformed into the hairy monster during a game in West Side. Monsterback doesn't seem to fall into any one category of monster: his feet are able to grasp things, like an ape, his teeth are reminiscent of a wolf's, and stranger still, his fur seems to rattle when aggravated, making a strange "hissing" sound that usually precedes an attack. Despite Monsterback's feral demeanor, he seems capable of speaking, and displays a certain machismo, as he usually attacks whatever appears strongest in the vicinity, and doesn't stop until he's won.
  • Quicksable: Quicksable is a rare breed. A youth with a mind for crime and cruelty, and a speedster entirely on the wrong side of the law. Sable aims to climb to the top of the underworld, and perhaps higher, and stops at nothing to achieve his goals. Many of his crimes are meant to be shows of status and power, to prove that Quicksable is the fastest, the most cunning, and the most fearsome of criminals. Dressed in a black and purple costume to protect himself from the rigors of super speed, Quicksable's face is almost always obscured. The criminal can run, fight, and think at incredible rates, and also violently vibrate his molecules to tear solid materials apart. At times, the villain's youth is laid bare, as Quicksable falls prey to his need to prove himself, a weakness Kid Ballistic has exploited in the past, making the two bitter rivals. Now that the Progeny has taken him down, Quicksable may come to view them all as enemies.
  • The Alchemist: Passing as the simple owner of a picturesque spice shop in Millennium City's Chinatown, Mister Fu - a seemingly harmless, tiny, old man - is known as The Alchemist on the streets. A feared Asian drug baron with the mighty power of chemokinesis; the ability to manipulate the state and reactions of (non-organic) chemical elements. As if that was not bad enough, Mister Fu is also a Kung Fu master who favors the style of the monkey. Or, as Starlet calls it, a Kung Fu Wizard!

"I would be a much different person than I am today were it not for the Progeny. Before I met them, I kept people at arm's length. I was... friendly to people, but didn't allow myself to form friendships. And then I joined the team. It was rocky at the first, but eventually, they grew to accept me for who I am, and I began to open up more to them. Now I can't imagine where I would be without people like Kid Ballistic, Lash or Silver Scar in my life. The Progeny is much more than just a group of friends to me: they're my family." - Faith

"We're a team. Feel free to fill in the mushy details; warm and fuzzy isn't really my shtick." - Black Ice

"It turns out, when you think you have a lot to teach other people, it usually means that they have even more to teach you. That's what joining the Progeny ended up being for me." - Strong Suit
