Omega coughed, "Yes, you do look menacing!" He yelled over the crowd. "Mind playing something else? How about 'Walking On Sunshine?'"

Train 1

Maria looked down at her shirt, a tank top that she had Pro label with a design she'd seen elsewhere in Veracruz, a Chevron symbol with the logo changed to read cabrĂ³n. "Thanks, I had my... uh friend design it for me." she said uncertainly, not knowing exactly how to bring up the subject of her constant companion.

"So," she went on, "what's your name? Mine is Maria."

One girl next to Travis continued to try and get his attention to no avail. She turns to Cody with a worried look.

"Excuse me, do you know him?" she asks, a bit worried that he was in his own little world.

Car 3:

Cody nods, "Yeah his my brother, why?"


Car 3:
Travis noticed the girl talking to his brother and smiled. With his music playing, he didn't hear what they were saying. Cody's got himself a girlfriend, he thought, Way to go kid, now singing along at a quite whisper so he didn't bother their conversation, "It's a brand new day, and the sun is high. All the birds are singing that you're gonna die." The irony of him listening to this song, as a super hero, occurred to him and made him chuckle slight.y

Tram Car #1: The minotaur grunts inhumanly chuckles at Julio's comment. He thinks before answering. "Next song for sure little one." he says before pausing, presumably to smile but the full-face helmet was over his face. "Is it one you like?" he asks.

Meanwhile the girl talking to Maria smiles widely. "Uh, hehe it's such a nice name. My name is Kendra. My old friends used to call me shift." she says, not sure how to explain that part of the situation. As that happened, across the tram the man raised an eyebrow at Ursa's comment.

"You don't know about singing boy?" he asks Ursa curiosly. As that happened, the boy looking over the carvings agrees. "Hehe yeah, monkeys are cool. Is that your power? Summoning monkeys?!" he asks, exited at seeing a power in action.

Tram car #2: The fish kid nods at Nicholi as he questions his ability to breathe.

"Yeah, thanks for asking." he sas, taking another deep breat. "I got lungs, and gills. Fits inside better than you'd think. I'm more used to the gills though....it's funny, learning to breathe is hard, don't know how you guys manage it so easily." he says cheerfully. "So how's it complicated?" he asks, intrigued by Nicholi. Meanwhile Star patrol got an odd reaction out of the synthetic.

"Hmm, I'm not gonna lie that sounds sorta familiar, though I'm not familiar with your particular unit. My designation is DAR unit 3, I work for GEAR tech, if anyone can help you odds are it's them." he says, holdin out a hand to shake. Through all this, the tow individual's were still trying to get South Star's attention, worried something was wrong with him.

Tram Car #3: A few people nodded at Minerva's statement. The nurse frowned. "Oh, well I guess that explains it....you never tried to explain things?" she asks. Meanwhile the girl who checke don Travis shrugged at Cody's question.

"He hasn't seemed quite right since he got in here. No offense, does he always act like this?" she asks as she catches Travis grinning out of the corner of his eyes. She reacts by showing a weirded out face and turning back. "Umm..." she mumbles, not sure how to react as he keeps singing.

The speedster chuckles at a quick speed and nods. "I kinda like that, it's catchy." he says witha big grin as he gets up. "Dark prince? cooooool. Says alot, can ya back it up?" he asks. Dave merely looked on now barely holding in laughter.

In the back, Dirk nods. "Damn good gift." he says with a smirk. "So, what brings you to a city of superheores and villians?" he asks curiously.

"Its complicated because I don't go well with people. Hell I don't even know you." Said Nicholi pointing accusingly.

Train 3

Trace put his hand to his chin and thought cartoonishly. "Well... Depends on whatcha mean by 'Back it up'." He said making quote marks with his fingers.

Train #1: "The only things I know about human society are torture, slavery and speciesism." Ursa answered. "Well, I can summon any animal, or become one. It's not my power, it's the suit." Ani answers.

Train #3: "Well, I tend to get set on fire when that happens." The Dark Lizard answers sadly.

Train Car Three


Tilting her head, Viper shrugs. "Sorry hun, I guess I don't know." She twisted her body around in her seat to face this girl. "To be honest, I've actually been sleeping most of the time. What's your beau look like? Coulda seen him when I first got on." Of course, helping people wasn't exactly her... forte, but she was tired and stuck on a train with people who's sanity was seriously questionable. Now was not the time to be catty.

"A few, eh? Let me hear them." Alec was ready for what the lizard had to offer. The insectoid was ready anyhow for what comes across him. The stoic and quiet being has been bored or mildly irritated before.

"Shift?" Maria asked, "What, you like driving cars or somethin'?" Maria asked with a grin. "Hey, you mind if I sit over there with you?" she pointed at a single seat that didn't seem to be occupied. "I'm not really into talking over this crowd," she gestured around at the singing giant and teleporting monkeys.

Jesus Christ that sounds so stupid.

It does, Pro agreed, but damned if I don't want to get that boy into a lab to see what exactly is going on.

Train Car #1: The man looked over to ursa and shook his head.

"Wow....sucks man. You really need to expand your horizons in that department." he explains before asking if Ursa wanted to learn how to sing. Meanwhile the kid nods at ani. "Wow, magical armor. That's cool. Erm, can you turn into something right now?" he asks curiously.

At Maria's question, Kendra blushed a bit. "Heh I wish I was a good driver. Umm, sure you can get closer." she says. After that happened she thinks. "Well, I'll show you why they call me shift. Erm, don't be scared though." she says before taking a deep breath as if to focus. The goth clothes seemed to dissapate,leaving er in a skintight suit. It then morphed into a copy of what Maria happened to be wearing. Kendra's haircolor shifts from it's long and dirty blonde with hilights to match whatever Maria's was down to hair length and thickness. "I can copy the face too, but umm, that almost always scares people." she explains. "Sorry." she adds.

Tram Car #2: The lizardman scratches his snout as he thinks over his options.

"I do have quite a few ssssstories..." he explains before snapping his fingers. "There wasss thissss one time a hunter wissshed to eat me alive. Can you believe that?" he says incredulously. "I was minding my own business, and i guesssss he was sssstarving or sssomething." he chuckles.

As the lizardman began his story the fish kid looks at Nicholi's pointing finger. "Well thats true, but you'll never get to know someone if you don't take a chance. Otherwise everyone's a stranger." the kid says. "I don't really have a name, but I got called trout alot. I think it was meanspirited but i kinda liked the name." he says.

Train Car #3: The nurse winces at Dark Lizard's explination.

"Sorry to hear that. You really seem like a nice guy too." she explains. One of the other female nurses makes an offhand comment about the earlier ex-boyfriend theory but the others try to shush her.

The speedster smirks. "Well you know, The dark prince!" he says, overacting much the same way Trace was earlier before continuing. "That's a pretty Swag nickname, gotta be able to back that up, prefferably with some cool demon powers or something." OOH!SHADOWPWOERS! That'd be real cool!"

The woman nods at Viper. "Oh thank you." she smiles. "Sorry to bother you with this, he isn't answering his phone." she says before looking for a picture in her wallet of the guy. "I'm April by the way." she says cheerily.

Traincar2: "Captain Sphinx, It' a pleasure." Sphinx said shaking the offered hand, Trevor however grunted "Wait a minute, how do we know he's not working with the other side? If he's familar with certain things that might mean he's connected to them." Captain SPhinx sighed, Trevor was always known for being rather blunt to the point of rudeness but he was a good man underneath.

Kari offered her hand, "Kari Faas, tech specialist. Our somewhat rude friend is Lt. Trevor Tennyson."

Traincar three: Fortune replied, "Oh just seeking my own fortune." He said with a grin.

Nicholi paused for a moment. He turned and looked out the window again. "I'm... a half demon." He said quietly.

Train 3

Trace shrugged. "No really big SHADOW POWERS yet." He said with a grand gesture. "I kinda just stole one of my fathers names. Damn old bastard."

Train 1

Maria's eyebrows shot up at the display Kendrea had just put on. "Huh." She then had a quick word with Pro before her clothing in turn changed to match what Kendra had been wearing previously and smirked. "I can do that too, probably also change into you but..." she paused, she'd never actually asked why she couldn't assume the appearance of other people. From what she'd understood about Pro's body-he was made out of tiny, tiney robots-she didn't think there was a technical reason why he didn't.

That is correct Maria, he spoke up. I can assume the shapes of other people, but never do for philosophical reasons. The same way your Silver Woman doesn't like to use guns.

Fair enough, Maria said before turning to her new companion.

"I can go even one more." Her skin suddenly morphed into a reflective chrome skinsuit. "Now I'm Silver Woman!" she said as she tried to strike a pose from her seat.

"That hunter had some nerve to do that. Just as the whore had the nerve to solicit me. I imagine that we might have something in common in that some people have the nerve to bother us. Some nerve anyway." Alec shortly replied.

Omega smiled, and brought out of his wallet a picture of him and his girl-friend.
"It's her favorite song." He added, pointing at her and smiling.

train car #1: Ursa shook his head, "It's fine." He said, before meditating again. Animalius would turn into an orangutan and continue carving the wood.

Train car #3: The Dark Lizard shrugged, "It's fine. I guess that's just the way it will always be." He mutters. Minerva meanwhile pulled some electronics out of her bag and seemed to be taking them apart and building something else.

Tram Car #1: The minotaur stopped strumming as the chorus finished out the last of the song. "How nice." he says, again pausng to smile through his helmet. "Where is she? I'm sure she'd like to be close for this" he says, curiously glancing around.

At Ursa's comment, the man insisted. "Nonsense! Here, I'll even help you through this next song." he says with a big smile. Meanwhile the morphing really got the kid wide-eyed. "WOW!" e says exited. he tries poking the orangutan/animalius to see if it wasn't some kind of smoke and mirrors trick.

Kendra looked on in amazement as Maria one-upped her. In the shock of maria morphing clothes, Kendra's reverted back into her goth look, most likely the closest thing she had to a default mode. She looked on stunned as Maria became Silver Woman. "Whoa." is all she says for a second. "Your a much better shapeshifter than me. You made it look so easy, I've never tried to change the texture of my skin." she says, still mouth agape as she looked over maria. She blushes aain as a thought crosses her mind. "May I um...try to copy the silver look?" she asks, her hands trying to get a feel on maria's shoulder to see if she was actually metal.

Tram Car #2: The lizard shrug's at Alec's comment. "Hmm, I'm not ssssure being bothered can properly be compared to attempted murder, but I ssssuppose you have a point to ssssome degree." the lizard shrugs. "What I meant that your ssssituation was funnier I believe." he says.

The fishkid hears nicholi's response as he turns away. The fish kid pauses long enough to breat before speaking. "Oh cool. Your like a good demon or someting....is that why you walk around with the casket? Or is it like something to do with your superpower" he asks.

While that happened, near the back of the tram the synthetic nods at Kari and Sphinx and takes the hand. "It is a pleasure to make all of yoru acquaintances. And I understand your friend Trevor's thought process. However I didn't mean to lead to such assumptions. I was familiar with a Star patrol AND a council of planets, however if we both really came from different universes than mere names are likely moot." he explains. "Nonthless my offer to speak to GEAR tech representatives is still open." he says with a cheery monotone.

Tram Car #3: The nurse frowns. "Well how is it you want it to be?" she asks curiously. The same upstart that made a comment about liking her was quickly shushed as she was about to say something. Meanwhile, one of the people asked what she was doing with the electronics, wondering if they should be worried about that.

When Trace explained the origin of the powers, the two were even more confused. "Waitwaitwait,I-...ahem. I'm Catholic so that sounds familiar now. Who exactly is your dad?" he says, raising an eyebrow. Dave likewise kinda put 2 and 2 together and curiosly awaited an answer.

In the back of the tram car, Dirk grins at Fortune's comment. "What a coincidence, I'd say something similar about my goals in the city." he chuckles a bit.



As everyone mingled, a voice came over all of the speakers. "ATTENTION PLEASE! BE SEATED AS WE ARE ABOUT TO LEAVE FOR REACH CITY" it says as the frotn engine begins to rev.

Car2: "We'd be honored." Captain Sphinx said his curiosity wa certainly piqued, Kari could feel his curiosity and hope as well as Trevor's unease. "I say, are we sure this method of transportation is safe?" Trevor exclaimed as he felt the sudden jolt as the train started up.

Car3: "Oh?" Fortune asked raising an eyebrow.

"I see. To tell the truth, I have a rule for myself regarding succubi: If she shows boobs, she eats rubes. And I sensed she was a succubus." Alec responded. "I'm a little paranoid at times, so I'm not too comfortable with... inhumanly attractive women."

Maria shrugged, "It's easy really," she nodded at Kendra's look and offered an armored arm, "I don't know if... it's not really a natural ability." She paused and had an internal battle with Pro. "See the thing is, I'm a robot an-"

"The correct term," Prometheus spoke up through thousand of incredibly small sound projectors in her upper chest, "is that you are a mind upload currently being housed in a nanolathe form." Maria frowned at the sudden interruption while Prometheus went on. "Hello Kendra, I am Prometheus." Maria sighed as she offered her hand again in a handshake.

"It always feels stupid to introduce yourself twice to the same person." she muttered under her breath.
