A Requite for Sollus: Round 1, Fight 4
The Rise of the Supermen
“It happened back in 199X, on the eve of the 1st anniversary of the Death of Sollus. Vigils were being held all across the world—” The grandfather stretched his arm out wide for emphasis. “…and the former Jupiter League members were in attendance. It was on this historic day that a group of former Sollus villains known as Poisonus, Multova, the Body Countess, Doctor Mentis and Korgos, the giant Bronze Colossus formed a new, deadly team.” The grandson’s eyes grew wide. “They attacked the vigil at the memorial statue of Sollus. Korgos ripped the head clean off the statue and used it to attack the alumni Jupiter League. You see son, Korgos was only known physical equal to Sollus next to Mr. Tempest. This was no slouching living statue. With Blind Mike off becoming the Solar Architect and Mr., Tempest out of commission, none of them stood a chance.
With their attentions split between saving lives and fighting this newly found team, the Jupiter League was beaten pretty badly. It was a sad day. The criminals took to attacking the people.” Granddad stopped. “Then the SLJ came in and saved the day?” the boy asked. Granddad shook his head. “It was a horrible time for the heroes, kiddo. Wanderlust Werewolf was a contract hit man, Miss March was pregnant with BrainChild and nobody wanted any of those lunatic groups around like Street Justice or the Crew. The League was on its own. A riot broke out amongst the carnage as Doctor Mentis used his mind control to cause the crowd to go mad. It was complete madness until they arrived…”
“Who?” the boy asked.
“The heroes that rose to replace and avenge Sollus… I’ll tell you about them.”
Sorry Gang, no story for you until you survive the first round. Survive the first round and everybody gets awesome set-ups next round. Good luck. You may talk trash now.
