Dark Destinies

Gamming Session Notes - 02-04-2018

And the attack on the tempest.

3 teams – we keep the deck while the reavers

20 hard points – 2 battle ship/anti-ship weapons under hull with 270 degree

Tempest – repulsers,, anti-gravity and thrusters in back -  max speed 600 mph (no deck ops at this speed!!)

Bart and company in power armor with energy rifles and they took plastic

Landari (sp?)- light cruiser -  Bird like race , bipedal at war with Rhodani (sp?)

Zangarlin (sp?) Crystals in bulkheads – stops teleporting through bulk heads only in open areas and not through bulk hears in line of sight.

Tiz reached out and the ship is alive as she can detect the ship.

An unknown force field around ship not planned for which was cloaking the ship. This means a change of attack.

Plan B – landing in the main landing bay to hold it.

Flew in on the jet at mach 3 and landed quickly in the main landing bay.  Engaged the enemy.  Kincaid attached the force fields for the landing bay and took them down.  Shadow goddess turned things dark. Inertia flipped 2 planes over.  Smokey took the transport copter and use it as a scraper to clear about 14 people out the bay door and falling into the Mediterranean along with the copter including its pilot inside.  Tank bot attacked dudes in the corner.  Goodman jumped onto a guy ripping his arm off and eating him.  Tiz killed a dude and then one by goodman which goodman said "you killed my snack".

The revers broke through the south doors to perform their tasks.  Goodman was attaching and snacking. 

Kincaid and Goodman go into the control room through the glass window and Goodman is ripping people apart.

Shadow goddess is using her rile to destroy planes.

Kincaid goes hand to hand with his sword. Kills one outright at 4 times his body and another guy deflects his second attack.

Smokey teleported one of the undamaged fighter craft to mars surface.  His teleport was so bright (more power is increased brightness) that is dispelled Shadowgoddess darkness she cast earlier on the landing bay causing her a headache.  Tiz is trying to contacting the large ship but not getting much on this try just fire suppression and alarms going off. 

Shadowgoddess puts a barrier 54m by 20M over the landing bay opening where the force field was before.

Kincaid finished off the guy who deflected his attack before.  With the one guy left who happens to be a Until Lieutenant.

Tiz is up in control room and interfacing with the ship.

Smokey lifted up the ship and turned the ship around to face out the landing bay opening.

HTRT and Gladius was incoming also, ETA 3 seconds (seriously).

And then the north door blasts into the landing bay and we are facing , Blare, ALPHA and CASTLE (not Lady Spectrum)

To be continued….

The Case of the Shredded Navajo
Why demi-gods should be avoided...

After breaking into the Navajo reservation police station, Goodman retrieved evidence to find out who was killing his chosen people and kill them, or it, or whatever "it" was. Each victim was torn to shreds, leaving mangled corpses. Goodman reviewed the investigation, but he could not help to see the image of his wife and daughter, their faces superimposed on the corpses.

I must stop this thing, Goodman thinks to himself. Whatever the cost, I can pay it. What is the worst that could happen? I die before my atonement for my failure with my own family? These people deserve the chance to grow,… evolve. They are on their way, but there is much left to do.

Through the night and into the sunrise of morning, Goodman flew above the town, looking for anything amiss. During the night a very large explosion occurs to the south. Clearly the self destruct of the base was the cause. I am sure they are fine, Goodman thinks. As the morning moves on, the Federal Bureau of Emergency Management (FEMA) arrives to provide aid to the Navajo people given the explosion.

They can stay, Goodman thinks. It may be inept human help, but their intentions likely are good. FEMA is just caught up in the bureaucracy.

Then, out of the corner of Goodman's eye, he sees his quarry. Some creature hidden from sight slips down into the building.Goodman pursues, stealthily approaching the thing. As he enters the building, he can see the bodies of several FEMA personnel and a large, praying mantis type of creature eating the corpses. Goodman grabs the thing by his leg and hurls him through the building's walls. The Thing transforms in flight into a huge bear-like creature, complete with claws and an unhinged jaw revealing rows of dagger-like teeth.

"Yeah, I got a set of teeth jut like it," Goodman states, unimpressed. The Thing roars, almost squeals, in delight. The volume of the roar shakes the ground and the foundation of the buildings nearby. I may be outclassed, Goodman thinks. I still must stand my ground.

Goodman floats between the Thing and the people outside, distracting It with dialogue. "Monsters of this new world will not prey upon the chosen Navajo people.

"Ah, the little pretender spirit reveals himself," the Thing says with condescension.

"Pretending to defend the Navajo people?" Goodman asks rhetorically. "No pretense creature. Do you have a name?" Goodman flies up in the hopes of drawing the monster away from the people.

"They tremble in fear when they hear my name: Naagloshii!"

"A Skinwalker," Goodman says flatly. These beings are like demi-gods. Demons from another realm or dimension, Goodman thinks. Definitely outclassed at the moment. Goodman looks at the FEMA personnel, "You must call for help from super heroes. Do not tarry."

Goodman turns to face Naagloshii, "Your name is not to be spoken among the Navajo. You may find your feast hard to swallow."

"You think changing these people to resist me or calling for help will make any difference? I will feast on your insides before anyone comes to your aid!" Naagloshii charges through the air at Goodman perched on a rooftop. Goodman attempts to dodge, but fails to do so. Once grabbed, Naagloshi hurls Goodman at, and through, a water tower. He feels the pain of the impact.

Naagloshi howls with delight as Goodman repositions himself to defend the people now huddled in the few, small residences of the town. Naagloshi crosses his arms as a bolt of red and black lightning smashes into Goodman who was unable to get out of the way, I cannot keep this up much longer, but if he focuses on me, then he is not focused on my People below.

"Creature, heroes often face impossible odds, and yet they carry the day because of conviction!"

A strange portal opens in the sky above Naagloshi and passing through it is the brutish, heavily built man called Castle. Castle's partner, Redline speeds across the ground moving fast enough to be almost unnoticed. Castle drives Naagloshii into the earth below. Naagloshi changes forms again into a huge, monstrous snake that coils around Castle's heavily built frame. Seeing an opportunity, Goodman flies high the dives straight down, using his tail as a lance to drive into Naagloshii's snake head. Redline grabs Naagloshii and leaves, taking the beast to a place with less potential for collateral damage. With Castle and Redline fighting Naagloshii, Goodman is left to help the remaining people. 

"Move," Goodman commands the people trying to tend to the critically wounded. "I am far better skilled than you to assist here." Like the true doctor he is, Goodman repairs the damage and stabilizes the two people, a Navajo and one of the FEMA agents. However, with government helicopters flying in, Goodman receives his cue to leave.

"Good bye," Goodman says robotically, devoid of any warmth or caring. "Smokey, one to beam up." And in a flash, Goodman disappears.

Gaming Session Notes - 01-21-2018

Dr Goodman was entertaining a 'Demi-god' with the Navaho tribe and the UN troops.  Until the UN called some damn heros to deal with the scary beast.  Goodman took a beating from the 'Demi-God'.

Meanwhile, Kincaid was normalizing into his new powers and feeling out how they work in the Alpha Moonbase's giant testing room.

Tiz was working on a new tank bot, work on the base(s), a new riding cat she wants and a new ship for the team.

Fury is working on the new Beta Moonbase (secret outside of IOTA and Athena's knowledge not access).

Shadow Goddess went to check on the Columbia operations to check that things were going well.

Smokey well, was allowing the mooks after linking them to see what was going on in their minds, they needed some R&R in the new base so Pimp Smokey brought up some entertainment for the mooks.  And will return the hookers later after the mooks are done.

After retrieving Dr. Goodman, he surprised a hooker in his real form in the teleport landing area who drew her 38 special and emptied the clip in Goodman.  Goodman ripped out her heart and ate it.  After the heart was removed, Smokey removed the expired hooker to the new Mariana's trench dumping ground for nature to take its course.

A news posting while on the Moonbase Alpha:
"Today in Utah near monument valley SHEILD officials report they successfully stopped a Villain terrorist attack with the Aid of UNTIL resulting in a NON nuclear explosion going off in the vicinity but no one was harmed and the terrorist base was destroyed. No information was given on the casualties among the strike team heroes or the villains involved at this time. 
"Until today released its updated Most wanted list with number seven being Slaughter house Five replacing graviton."  
"Today president trump came under fire again  this time for his controversial pardoning of Marcus Kincaid…
house Five.."

 "Today all of Angel falls celebrated the wedding  of two of its greatest heroes.. Phantasm and Matter Lord. The happy couple returned to the city for the wedding amongst friends and then departed to points unknown for their honeymoon."

The group discussed how to get some adamantium for various uses (weave into cloth for Kincaid, small amount for Dr Goodman and Tiz needing some for power source containment along with claws for her new Cat riding bot) by the team.  Athena negotiated with the Reavers to get 6 pounds of adamantium for a favor to help take down the Tempest – Until's floating platform in Czech republic.  And the team needs payback to Until after the Nevada base incident.  And the team all agreed to help and have fun with this 'heave combat' mission…..

stay tuned for next time..

Oh and that happened...

Ah yeah, and that happened in Nevada… Oh yeah and that too…. Oh forgot , that too….

So the Nevada Base was a total loss. And was noticed based on the blast cloud..  Oh another day in the office well now on the Moonbase Alpha (the non-secret location base also know as the staging base we are keeping up for appearances).  And we have the Chile base for what its worth..

At the moon base Alpha:

Smokey 'Yes the water was me to slow them down so I could get the rest of the people and things out before time was up.  I only had like 5 seconds.  We need to work on that base count down and the warnings.' (Smokey thinking another item for the Tiz's new base to add list – portal detection and the silent count down with notification to the team)…

"How did they track us to the Nevada base to open the portals" was a question asked by Shadow Goddess. Well, without Dr Goodman…    While not in the base but outside the base somewhere but we know his communicator is active just he is not answering.  No phone a friend for him I guess…

"Well, I checked us and removed the things she did after the mentalist intrusion".

Kincaid was surprised with 'Since when do we have a telepath, seriously? And why was I not told?  I know we had a teleporter but also a telepath? Would have been nice to know that given the past altercation with the mentalist.' …  crickets would have been herd if there were crickets on the moon base Alpha.  'You could have hung around more or asked' … 

Shadow Goddess called a contact who is a mentalist and Smokey and Shadow Goddess did an experiment in blocking in finding Shadow Goddess by her friend.  They went to the Coliseum in Rome and called her friend.  Smokey tried to shield her from detection.  Shadow Goddess's friend could not find her but her pre-cognition allowed her too.  Experiment , well not so well.  Back to drawing board  on this shielding thing..  Back to moon base Alpha.

A short time later, Kincaid received some information from Athena on their project.  Then he asked the team for assistance with retrieving something to assist his powers.  (Smokey makes a mental note of 'Yes, vague but hey, we have worked with less of a thought not even on the back of the napkin yet.')

Kincaid asked Fury for assistance once he 'obtained' the GPS coordinates from Athena for his requested information.  The location was in the Mariana Trench.  Athena also informed Kincaid that the satellite she used was hacked and they probably know the location also.  And were enroute to the location as she was telling us.

So not wanting to leave a message for Dr. Goodman that the team needed some rapid gills for a fishing expedition, Fury offered to transport us through the water down to the coordinates while we were in an air bubble and at rapid speed.  The escape plan was for Smokey if anything happened to Fury to try to get everyone out before we were crushed into fish food (long shot but a viable backup plan).

Tix reconfigured he tank bot for water movement and combat.

We transported to the water surface and then Fury worked her magic.

We found the coordinates and well there was an alien ship on one of the shelves of the ledge of the trench over 4 miles down. 

The ship was partial exposed on the shelf down the trench walls at over 4 miles down (there were 2 miles left to the absolute bottom of the trench). It was from the mid section with what looked like a phallic attachment like a star trek nacelle.  Kincaid could sense power sources in the ship once we got close.  Tiz sensed them also along with several smaller power sources which felt sort is like her bots.

Standing on it was about 2 inches of sediment but revealed a red metal that has glitter in it.  A red glitters metal.

We sensed the incoming submarine with the others who knew of the location but were slower.  Tiz sent her aquabot tank to intercept them while we checked the ship.

After a quick scan, Smokey tried to teleport the ship.  Lets just say a medic was called as Smokey as he was down to 1 body left. Iota helped him with some injected medicine.

Fury sensed the water was inside the ship partially also.

A search of the shit revealed a tear in the side that exposed all 3 decks to the ocean but interior doors were closed to contain the sea water. Upon entering the room, a 6 armed bot of some weird construction awoke and came through a partially opened door.  Kincaid attacked which his killing attach seemed to heal and power it up more.  Shadow Goddess, Tiz and Smokey attacked it and killed it.

Moved into the first sealed door.  Tiz opened the door of which Fury informed us that the green gas  was Chlorine gas and some other gases she does not recognize.  She stopped it from leaking out and moved our air bubble into the room in while not allowing the water to infiltrate the rest of the ship.  And the door was closed.

This room was a launch bay with some crates and a 3 person landing craft in an alien configuration.

The next room was a rack of blue crystal spears. Tiz checked determining they are some kind of explosive but very foreign technology and then IOTA said they was some sort of crude AI missile.  There are 120 of them in racks in this room.

The next room was a corridor with a few doors.  The team went to where they thought the power source was.

Entered a room with a glowing cylinder with a force field around it with 4 crystals pointing towards the glowing cylinder and there appeared to be two missing crystals (positions for them but no crystals).  

Kincaid tried to reach the power source after coming to the conclusion that it was a white hole (Yes, this led to a good 10 minutes of comments).  Lighting arched to him and appeared to supercharge him to 400%.  The blast doors around the cylinder were closed by Kincaid .  The lighting stopped but this left him very weak with no powers and more human, vulnerable.  He was lifted up to the 4 crystals as they were 15 feet off the floor and took them.  He then ingested the crystals.  And then ingested his 2 power rings.  (Lots of comments of various things)…

There then came into the 2 doors, 3 Bots in each door.  Smokey teleported them to the bottom of the Mariana Trench the other 2 miles down to give us time to work through things.

Tiz's auqobot was badly damaged engaging the submarine and its combatants.  She attempted repairs and it asked for a resupply bot as it was almost out of ammunition.

Smokey decided to send it one of the 120 blue crystal missiles.  No time like the present to test an alien missile.  The aquabot shot it but it did not blow up.  Hmm… we obviously missed something in those steps for use…  Damn poorly written instruction manual…

Aquabot was destroyed and they were resuming their approach to the coordinates.

Smokey reluctantly decided to try and move the entire ship again to the dark side of the moon temporarily until Fury can finish the landing bay in the new moon base beta .  Then Smokey will move it back to the new moon base beta.  This time Smokey was able to move the ship to the dark side of the moon without any issue.

Then Smokey took the team back to the moon base Alpha from the ocean.

Kincaid is slowly getting his powers back or his new/altered powers…

And the adventure continues to take over Columbia and then world in our continuing adventures of 'How NOT to be Heros' ……

And there WAS once a base in Nevada.. 

 

Smokey took the mooks skydiving (6 of them with Bard and one of Tiz's engineers) over Easter Island for fun and for a team building exercise.  Frick and Frack parachutes do not work and I send them back up to 10K feet over Easter Island until the rest of the mooks are down and parachutes are repacked.   Frick and Frack passed out so they were washed a few times in sea water to remove the crap and piss smell then placed into the cells back at base.

 

Tiz -  working on new secret base.

Dr Goodman – continuing research work and disappeared

Kincaid – working on project with Athena

Fury – at base maybe ……..  Plane status unknown..

 

At the Nevada base….

 

"WARNING DIMENSIONAL BREACH DETECTED Level Six"

"Unexplained Wormhole present. Hostiles detected."

"Warning UNTIL Personnel Detected"  (United Nations Tribunal International Law)

(think SHIELD but for the united nations)

 

Smokey -  moved all the mooks to the new moon base and then move Goodman's lab. And then grab frick and frack. And  Tiz's tank bot was last technically.

 

On the bottom floor – a worm hole/portal with 6 dudes in heavy armor and then 6 shiny people in spandex.

Kincaid uses shield to push the first dudes back into the portal.  The heroes return fire on his shield and took it down.

Moira creates darkness on them but not us. She attacked the wormhole portal guy and wounded him.  Kincaid affected the portals to half their size and then a second portal opened up. 

 

Starburst blinds Kincaid for a few actions.

Blare uses a sonic attach to impact Kincaid.

Tiger was present with his claws that could cut through anything short of adamantium

A guy that shoots green lightning was present which rounded out their team of 4.

And there were 2 other non-team members also present.

 

Smokey brought in sea water to flood the base to slow down the intruders and flood the portals.  And then took tank bot out with seconds to spare before the base blew up with a 6 kiloton blast.

 

Over the base blast:

Kincaid stays and follows the one drone that leaves the blast zone of the old base after 5 minutes searching. 

2 Helicopters arrive at the blast site – one is a troop carrier with the UNTIL logo on it and another one with a shield has a SHIELD logo on it.

At least there is a Chilean base left.

And the story continues next time….

Dr. Goodson, Detective

Whoever or whatever plaguing the nearby Navajo poses a threat to my long term goals. Something needs to die, and when I find it, I will kill it. Obviously, the tribal police, such as they are, requires some serious assistance. I needed two thing this night: a Navajo criminal and access to the tribal police's records of the recent attacks. Neither should pose much of a challenge and conveniently both can be found in the same place.

Sneaking around in the dark with only the moonlight could be more of a challenge. With an ability to be invisible, well, it would be quite difficult to find me short of some intensive searching for me in the vast desert wilderness and the tiny villages within it. Oddly, the federal government has not sent any of its agents here to investigate the deaths of the recent plague which claimed so many martyrs on the path of greatness. Well, if they are not here yet, then they will likely be soon. The government always meddles…

The attacks on the Navajo, however, could be attributed to recent genetic manipulation. Why? Three things:

  1. The overdose experiment involving one of the Mexican inmates.
  2. The death percentage among the Navajo.
  3. The work with Morty.

Given the normal distribution of results, there remains a possibility that one of the Navajo experienced an unexpected mutation. While other possibilities to account for the attacks exists, I cannot deny the timing and the resulting, ah, creature… like Morty, exhibiting violence and disregard for improved life.

In any case, the first step is to learn what I can from the police. Time to break into the tribe's police station…

And the mission continues.

Dr Goodman requires Chile base for new improved drug work to be called AMP.  Smokey takes TIz and Dr. Goodman to the Chile base.

Shadow Goddess will bring mooks (Juan and Paco).

 

Athena has taken over the Chilean base computer and is the interface.

 

Dr Goodman explains to Paco through Juan he will test the new version and he has no choice.  Paco is apprehensive.

 

After 1 minute taking AMP, Paco is very happy and high with inhibitions severely impaired and his self preservation is diminished.

 

Paco is in cage with Jerry and Padro is now in Chile for additional testing.  Punched Dr Goodman in a fit of rage before taking AMP.  Took AMP and it only took 30 seconds to take effect.

 

Padro is now in cell with Paco and Jerry for monitoring…. To be continued…..  The drug's effects last about 8 hours in this current form.

 

Per Dr. Goodman, it is time to move to free samples of AMP for wider testing and test subjects.

 

Athena stated the Twisted Savant clone in Chile has not changed in 8 years.  His armor is the Bastard version 43 .  Athena latest version on record for the armor is mark 57.  Shadowgoddess asked about the armor to which Athena said insufficient access and Omega level access required.  Warp Star, Lady Savant  and Twisted Savant are the only Omega level operatives with info on the armor capabilities.

 

Kincaid and Shadowgoddess -  check out the armory:

 

Large battle droid inactive -  8 foot guns on each of 2 arms with bore holds for like attachments (Note: avoid being in front of the guns) -  it has a total of 6 arms  

2 smaller droids also inactive

Trooper equipment – 15 sets of suits of armor and guns

trumpet size case with energy cells – 50 of them (1 suit of armor for 50 hours , 1.5% blasters for 1000 shots of 12D6 dmg, alter dmg to Tiz's guns augmented for like 75 points).  Full charge explosion -  1000 yards radius with a dmg of 1 kiloton – 20D6 killing dmg .

 

3 larger versions of the rifles on tri-pods.

 

All will be transported to the "new' moon base armory unless noted (Kincaid mentioned about power cells).

 

Kincaid pardoned by the president. 

 

As a low brow celebration event sponsored by Kincaid, the rave at the club will have Tiz setup security cameras to monitor things, Smokey will remove any unfortunate party goers who depart or overdose and Shadowgoddess will pass out 'party favors' to the select guest list clients. Kincaid is monitoring and making appearances.   The party runs for the length of 6 hours and the part runs out of food and people are leaving to go get food.

 

Per Dr. Goodman, overdose on the drug, person died and then came back berserker type.  Important safety tip, don't overdose on AMP!!

A.T.H.E.N.A - 

Advanced. Trans dimensional. Hyper-heuristic. Experimental. Neural Artifact.

 

IOTA build and turned on A.T.H.E.N.A.  – note now IOTA reports to ATHENA.

 

ATHENA is trying to build a trans dimensional scanner to find Twisted Savant in the alternate dimension where earth is destroyed.

 

 

Went to Nuuk, Greenland to have a private chat away from the base, ATHENA and IOTA.  We decided to continue to go along with this while keeping the new secret moon base under wraps and moving things there. 

 

Went back to Miami to warm up and continue the discussion of plans.

 

New moon base in south pole region on moon unknown to IOTA and ATHENA.  Fury spent time  to setup the new base and make it sealed.  Smokey populated it with air and then we will take the recycling equip from the other moon base being used as a staging base.

 

Plan is to move to stuff to the staging base like we are preparing to occupy it.  Then Smokey will move stuff to our new base once the new base is ready in the south pole on the moon.

 

Moved all items at the bottom of the base and moved all identified items we are taking.  The lab for Goodman will be the last thing as we need the new secret base to be recycling air and water to be functional for his lab.

 

Tiz had the current Nevada base fabricate the parts for another fabricator for the moon base.  Took about 1 hour.

 

Tiz created construction bots to assist with building the new secret base infrastructure and to keep it running.

Once Goodman has stuff packed up and ready, we will transport his experiments to the new base directly.

 

Chile base for Goodman, may only need to be samples and schematics not the equipment itself.  Tiz can purge IOTA and ATHENA if they are found to be in any equipment we take.

 

Tiz is going to take the schematics for the plane.  And  we might contact the Russians who have an almost identical plane for assistance with things to get our own plane created and running.

 

Last thing to be moved are the mooks.  To staging moon base and then to real moon base.

 

Moon base todo items:

  1. Have fury create a separate chamber for a landing bay that can be sealed from space – method of entry TBD and how to keep atmosphere in and vacuum out (force field with doors that open/close maybe to a launch path to the surface) maybe Tiz construction bots and Tiz can whip up some tech magic (yeah I know more to Tiz's to do list)
  2. Will need additional supplies for maintaining on the base:

    1. food and water
    2. materials for additional fabrication (internal wall lining like Nevada base, build internal infrastructure for base, etc.)

 

 

Mexican Prison – best of the best test and 10 winners (well 11 if you include Juan the American with very bad luck and family that screwed him over to the Mexican police for drug trafficking)

Juan – Spanish translator (Smokey told him we needed a translator and to be considered as part of the staff pending his probation period – of which Smokey intentionally he did not tell him that he is on permanent probation along with being expendable)

3 prison guards

6 Mexican prisoners

1 Japanese prisoners like villain from Juan Claude Vandame movie

 

The prison test involved Goodman talking via a translator inside the prison yard about the top ten will be freed from the prison.  Goodman killed the Arnold Schwarzinator type guy by ripping out his heart and eating it.  Kincaid invisibly accompanied Goodman who was always in his shimmering outline for effect in the prison yard.  Smokey moved all the guards into the yard also to include them into the test.  Shadow goddess turned the afternoon into twilight for added test criteria and added stress on the participants.  Tiz disabled all the electronics including having the cell phones explode on anyone that had one which thinned the participants also. 

And then the grand melee started with Kincaid assisting in the thinning of the light weights. 

In the end after the grand test, the prison is burned to the ground via massive green bolts from on high from some unknown source…

 

Goodman had Smokey take the 11 winners from the prison up to the new base.  Smokey went and got the latest drug specimens for trial on the 10 prison winners.  They were given the drug and placed into a cell in the new base for safety with some bottles of water.  Also since we have moved some stuff to the new moon base, no need for them touching out shit either without permission.

 

Juan was searched mentally to get his truthfulness and background by Smokey. ( Juan is an American interpreter who was coming to Mexico to teach English as a second language and his family got him caught up in their business.  He is an innocent wrongly crossed by his family member hector who died in the prison test, was ratted out to the police for trafficking drugs and has not had a court date yet. Luck day for him, court is adjourned!!)   And was introduced to Bard upon return to the Nevada base and told that Juan would be joining our staff as a translator.

 

IOTA went to Liquid Metals in Pennsylvania to acquire a sample of a new metal that is required to build the trans dimensional scanner.  She was able to acquire this even though an anonymous tip to the Avengers from a pay phone in Nuuk, Greenland of the pending suspicious activity was unsuccessful in stopping her (second string Avengers were sent).  She will need about 7 days, 23 hours to complete the scanner after repairing herself from the encounter.

Making America Great Again!

President Donald J. Trump sat in his plush, overstuffed executive chair behind the Resolute Desk and focused intensely on his efforts, his brow furrowed in concentration.  He was the picture of the major world leader engaged in critical tasks of global import and seemed to be making headway, his slight smile bearing witness to his pleasure.

A knock on the door to the Oval Office startled him and he quickly dropped the paperclip animal he had been constructing, (perhaps a giraffe?) into the top drawer and slammed it closed.

"What is it?"

The door opened about a quarter of the way and an elderly man stuck his head into the room.

"Mr. President, do you have a minute?"

"Dammit Jeff, I'm really busy right now, can it wait?"

Emboldened, Attorney General Jeff Sessions stepped completely into the room and closed the door behind him.

"It's serious, Donnie.  It could probably wait, but I don't think you should."

"Alright Jeff, but stop it with that Donnie shit, I told you none of that in the Oval Office."

"Apologies Mr. President.  I've been contacted by some of our mutual friends.  The Society."

"Goddammit Jeff, I knew they'd be sniffing around after that whole Canadian thing.  Great party though."  He chuckled, and it was somehow wicked, like a little boy who'd discovered the joys of masturbation for the first time.  "What do they want?"

"A Pardon."

The president actually laughed out loud.  "Well shit Jeff, is that all?  I thought it was gonna be something expensive.  You know how much I like to spend money but I like to spend it on me.  Who is it?"

"Marcus Kincaid."

Trump's brow furrowed and he ran his hand through his thin, dyed and coiffed mane.  "I remember him from the poker game.  Oh and he was in Montreal too, wasn't he?"  He smirked again at the memory.

"Yes Mr. President, to both."

"His dick was bigger than mine so I didn't play with the same girls.  He frowned a bit.  "Did I?"

"No Mr. President."

"Ok, that's good then.  I like pardons, it means a news cycle and it'll give those media assholes something else to talk about other than Russia.  What did he do again?  I forget."

"Trafficking in human organs."

"Shit Jeff, that's just plain gross.  Dumb too.  If yer gonna buy and sell, there's a lot more profitable things to move."

"That's true.  Especially true once my new drug policies go into effect, it's gonna re-energize the black market like nobody's business!"

"That's all good Jeff, we like for people to make money, especially our friends.  Go ahead and prepare the paperwork, let's get our friend back on the board.  It'll keep The Society quiet for a little while too.  Once you get it ready, let's get Marcus up here and talk to him, we can call a press conference after that and knock it out of the park."

"Yes sir, I'll get it done.  When do we want to call the press conference?"

"Tomorrow!  It's gonna be Monday, so let's start the week off with a splash!"

"Good plan, Sir.  I'll make it happen."

"Okay Jeff, now get out of here, I have shit to do."

"Of course Sir."

The smarmy old fellow ducked back out of the Oval Office and the door quietly clicked shut behind him"

The president of the Free World slid open the drawer and pulled out his paperclip giraffe.  "Now then, Mr. Giggles…where were we?"  He changed his voice a little, presumably the voice of 'Mr. Giggles'.  "Oh Mr. Pwesident, you're SO awesome!"  His voice normalized and he chuckles like a wicked little boy again.  "You can say it Mr. Giggles … I'm 'UGE"

Dr. Goodson presents well dressed and groomed. Weight is appropriate to height. His affect is blunted to flat. He demonstrates an orientation to place and time. Dr. Goodson reports no issues with sleep and appetite. Dr. Goodson sometimes speaks of himself in the third person and sometimes references himself as "Goodman". He appears unaware of this tendency, even when highlighted during the interview. Additionally, he swayed slightly throughout the interview and compulsively corrected perceived inaccuracies during the conversation, becoming visibly agitated.

Diagnoses

Asperger's Syndrome, Dissociative Identity Disorder (rule out), Major Depressive Disorder (single episode)

Family History

Helen Goodson (wife, deceased) and Essence Goodson (daughter, deceased). No other family noted. Dr. Goodson was raised within the foster care systems with repeated psychiatric hospitalizations. It is presumed that his biological parents abandoned him at age 3 because of his disability.

Initially Helen and later Essence contributed significantly to Dr. Goodson's psychological stability. Helen and Dr. Goodson met during high school and by any account appeared to genuinely loved him, in spite of his challenges. It is unlikely that Dr. Goodson would have completed higher education, succeeded academically, and kept employment without her. She acted as both interpreter and educator for him, teaching him to improve his social skills to an acceptable level. Her advocacy ensured opportunities presented themselves to him, allowing for the remarkable growth he experienced. The timing of their relationship was key, and growth would have been unlikely had their relationship began several years later than it did.

Education

In spite of difficulties from disability and inconsistent living arrangements through childhood, Dr. Goodson excelled at academics. However, Dr. Goodson's compulsivity to accurately define facts with a level of detail that exceeded the capabilities of educators repeatedly posed challenges.

Dr. Goodson achieved a medical degree, as well as degrees in several fields of study, centering on biological, zoological, and bioengineering fields of study.

Vocation

Dr. Goodson taught various biological and medical classes at John Hopkins University until the incident where 36 of his students died because of illegal experimentation.

Clinical Observations

Dr. Goodson is extremely intelligent and quite verbally expressive. Interviewer notes a compulsivity in correction of factual information interfered throughout the interview, even over trivial or metaphoric statements. Sometimes he would mumble a correction quietly to himself rather than speak it aloud.

Discussion of the death of his wife and daughter was met with no emotive content. Denial and intellectualization defense mechanisms noted during such conversations, giving a detached impression as if Dr. Goodson had no investment in his only two family members. Direct conversations about his life with them before their death had a different, positive affect though still blunted. He mentioned several times that they were his motivation in life and he would trade his life for them.

In discussing the conviction that resulted in his incarceration, Dr. Goodson described his actions in the third person, sometimes calling himself "Goodman" instead. While projective analysis might imply "Goodman" as a reference to him being a good man doing what was needed, this would seem contradictory to the deaths involved in his illegal, unethical gene therapy trials on his students. However, he would defend those actions as necessary and blamed the government for their failing to realize the great potential to help humanity in curing diseases and increasing defense against ever more resilient bacterial infections, like those that killed his wife and daughter. He sees his punishment as "completely unjustified", a phrase repeatedly used. He sees the government as the true culprits in Helen's and Essence's deaths. He sees Dr. Goodson as innocent of any crime, Goodman was a hero stopped from saving them, and the government the villains allowing his wife and child to die when presented with a cure.

Summary

Dr. Goodson never presented as angry or violent in any way and presently poses no risk to the general population within the correctional system. Nothing in his history shows him to be violent when interacting with others, nor is there any indication of violence at present.

Of concern is the possible split in identity, which could worsen or result in unpredictable behavior. In any event, Dr. Goodson clearly could become violent and given the degree of psychological stress he experiences, this escalation could occur unexpectedly. As such, it is recommended that Dr. Goodson be treated intensively in any correctional institution to which he would be assigned.

Lastly, Dr. Goodson does express an understanding of his crimes and the results of his actions, reaffirming prior evaluations. His compulsion to correct factual information allowed him to describe in detail the events of the crime and the subsequent trial and incarceration. While he suffers from both grief and disability, neither negates his full participation in the judicial system.
