A pair of stars shines down on to a man walking out of a gym. He has short brown hair with grey eyes and broad shoulders with a trim and muscular body with a light tan skin. He is wearing a black tee shirt with faded grey jeans and boots along with a blue gem pendant necklace. The man had a trouble finding a gym that could take his full strength. He needed a gym that was rated for super use. They used some kind of super or hyper tech that made the weights heavier than they looked and could take more damage.
On the way back to his place, he heard a scream. It sounded close maybe a block away he guessed. He ducks into an alley. He makes sure no one can see him before he touches the gem pendant. There's a flash from the gem as his clothes changes. The man is now dressed in a white toga with a leather belt that has two pouches and a pair of sandals with shin guards.
He jumps to the roof of building next to him and looks around for where the scream came from. He could see a store at the end of the street getting robbed. He jumps down in front of the store and steps into the open door. He could see three masked robbers, one of them getting money from the register another in the back of the store and the last walking into the office of the store. He walked into the back of the store and knocked out the robber as he noticed he was watching over the workers and the people who were in the store. He laid the robber down as one of the workers whispered, "Atlas."
He turned to the worker. "What happened?" he asked.
"These robbers came in demanding our money and took are cells. One took the manager into the back to open the safe before putting us here."
"Did you have time to alert the cops?"
The worker shook their head. "They made us hold are hands up."
He nodded and took a cell from his belt pouch and hands it to the worker. "This is a line to the cops tell them what happening. I'll deal with the robbers." The worker nods taking the cell. He walks over to the robber at the register as the worker calls the cops.
The robber looks up to see Atlas in front of him and points his gun at him. He put his hand on the barrel and crushes it. The robber eyes widen as he does and turns to call to the other robber. Atlas pulls the gun from the robber's hand and hit them, knocking the robber out. The last robber hears the sound of the robber hitting the floor and looks out to see Atlas at the register. He turns to the last robber as he points his gun at him. Before the robber shots Atlas rushes up to him and put his palm to the end of the gun stopping the bullet in the barrel. The robber turns to run out the back, but Atlas grabs him and lifts him off the ground. "You're not going anywhere." He said. He takes the gun from the robber then takes some robe from his belt and ties his hands and legs up.
Atlas drops the robber as he looks into the office to see if there are any more robbers. There aren't any more robbers, but he does see the people's cell phones. He picks them up and the robber and walks back into the store front. He gives the people their phones back then ties up the two other robbers. The clerk hands him back the cell he gave to them. A moment later, the cops show up to the store and Atlas takes the robbers out to them. He tells the cops what happen before he jumps to the roof across the street.
He jumps down to another alley and then looks around before touching the pendant hidden under his robe. There is a flash of light and he's back in his street clothes. He steps out of the alley as he starts for his place again. While he walking to his place, he sees a creature dart around a corner into an alley. He follows after it. He finds an imp like creature clawing at a chain link fence at the end of the alley. The fence seems to rust and age as the imp hits it. He inhales sharply then screams, blasting the creature with a sonic shockwave stunning the imp. He moves up to it to get a better look. "I wouldn't do that Samson." He hears a voice behind him say.
"Who are you?" He asked turning to the person behind him.
"I'm time embodied, but you can call me Tim." The man says. He is tall and lean with a toned build with pale skin. He has short grey hair with old eyes contrasting with his young face. He wears a new suit, but in an old style.
"What's that?" Samson asked pointing to the imp.
"That's a Chronovore." He says taking a card from his pocket. "I would like you to join the team I'm putting together to fight those and find out who or what are behind them." He says handing him the card. Samson takes the card as he looks down at it. The card had a symbol on it. The symbol was an hour glass that had infinity symbol as the glass. "Find that symbol on a car if you wish to join me." He said walking over to the imp and picking it up. "I do hope you join." He says leaving the alley.
Samson looks down at the card thinking where he could find the car waiting. He always sees taxies and other cars lining up outside hotels waiting for passengers. He knows there are a few hotels around the convention center. It is close enough to walk there.
Once he got to the convention center, he could see the cars lined outside it. He saw the car with the symbol on it with two people standing outside the car. It's a man and woman. The woman has curly dark hair tied back into a low bun with dark eyes. She has trim and curvy body with honey skin tone. She's wearing dark brown shirt with a tan bodice like vest and light brown tights with boots. The man has short dark slicked back hair with hazel eyes and fair skin with a fit and toned build. He's wearing a white tee shirt under a black leather jacket with blue jeans and boots. He walks over to the two.
"Hello" the woman says.
"Do you two work for Tim?" he asked.
They nodded. "I'm Eleanora and this is Colt." She said pointing the man next to her. "Are you joining us?" she asked.
"What am I joining? Is it some new superhero team?" Samson asked.
"We are more than a hero team." She smiled.
"Besides we already have a hero team." Colt said.
"What's the team called?"
"The defense agents" Colt said.
"You're the TDA?"
"They're part of us." Eleanora said. "Are you joining us?"
"Sure." Samson nods.
"Get in." Colt said getting to the driver's seat of the car. Eleanora gets into the passage seat as Samson gets into the back of the car. Colt starts the car and takes off. They drive for a few minutes before they come to an old tunnel. A portal opens in the tunnel. As they drive up to the portal, shuttles close the back windows. They passed through the portal into a vortex of swirling mist and light. A minute later, they came out in a town much like the one they just left. Samson gets out of the car and looks around. As he looked down the street it seem like it went back in time, when he looked up the street it seem to go forward in time.
"Where are we?" He asked turning to the others.
"The island of lost time" Eleanora replied.
They parked outside of a building with TDA recruitment office on the front window. They walked into the office and into a meeting room in the back of the office. It had a table with a few chairs in the middle of the room. A pair of computers sat on the table. A bookcase filled with books lines the back wall and a large screen hangs on the front wall. The screen turned on to show Tim on it. "There is another person coming shortly, please use the books or computer to look up anything you would like to know while you wait." He said then the screen turns off. Samson takes a few books down and set down at the computer as Eleanora and Colt leaves.
A pair of stars shines down on to a woman walking out of a large office building. She has long dark blond hair with amber eyes, cream skin, slim and toned body. She's wearing a black off the shoulder long sleeve shirt with faded blue jeans and pumps with stone pendant necklace. The sign on the office building reads Delphi corp. It's the leading hero tech company.
The woman was leaving a meeting at the company. She took off the company badge she wore and puts it her purse. It read head of public relations. She was on the way to lunch when she felt a buzzing in the back of her head. She looks around scanning the area around her. She could tell there was a robber at a tech store close to her. She slips into an alley and make sure no one is watching as she touched her pendant. There was a flash from the pendant as her clothes changed.
Her clothes changed into a long ancient Greek robe with a small blue hood that covered her eyes and a circlet with a small blue gem in center. She wore a gold slash that hid her purse and had a few pockets sewed into it and wore a pair of gold lace up sandals. She flew off to the store.
She lands in front of the store and walks inside. She mentally scans the store. She notices the customers are hiding behind the counter with the clerk and the robbers in the back of the store. There were three robbers, one watching the store another working on opening the store's safe, the last one covering the way out.
She moved over to the counter checking on the clerk and customers. "Lady Fate" the clerk whispered as she saw her. Lady Fate held her finger to her lips as she mentally told the clerk. "Stay here and call the cops." The clerk nodded and thought, 'They cut the alarm and took our phones.' She takes a cell from one of the pockets in her sash and hands it to the clerk. "This is a line to the police." She mentally tells the clerk then turns to the back. The clerk takes it and calls the cops.
Lady Fate goes to the back of the store as the robber at the door turns to her. She smiled at him as the gem in her circlet glows. A bolt of energy shots from the gem knocking the robber out, but he doesn't fall. She mentally holds him up as she walks into the back room. The robber at the back door sees her walk in. He aims his gun at her and tries to shoot her, but he can't move as she notices him. She mentally pulls the gun from his hand as she puts her hand on the robber at the safe. The robber looks up at her and drops his tools as he puts his arms up. She looks around the office. She sees the cells on the desk and picks them up. She walks back into the store mentally pulling the robbers into the store with her. She gives the clerk and customers their phones back. A moment later, the cops arrived and she hands over the robbers as she tells what happened. She flies off.
She lands a few blocks away in an alley and changes back into her normal clothes. She walks out of the alley and heads for her place. She feels a buzzing in the back of her head again. She looks around and see something dart part then turn into another ally. She followed the thing into the alley. The alley was blocked off by a tall wooden fence. There was an imp like creature clawing at the wood making it dry and rot. As she sees the imp, she hits it with a bolt of energy stunning it. She moves close to the imp to get a better look.
"I wouldn't get close to it Daphne." A voice behind her says. She turns to see a man. He is tall and lean with a toned build with pale skin. He has short grey hair with old eyes contrasting with his young face. He wears a new suit, but in an old style.
"Who are you?"
"I'm time embodied, but you can call me Tim and that creature is a Chrono-vore."
"Is that why the wood was rotting as it clawed the wood?" She asked.
Tim nodded. "I would like you to join the team I'm putting together to fight those and find out who or what are behind them." He says taking a card from his pocket and handing her the card. Daphne takes the card as she looks down at it. The card had a symbol on it. The symbol was an hour glass that had infinity symbol as the glass. "Find that symbol on a car if you wish to join me." He said walking over to the imp and picking it up. "I do hope you join." He says leaving the alley.
Daphne looks over the card thinking of where she would find a car with the symbol on it. She remembers seeing cars line up outside the convention center and the hotel around it. She walks out of the alley and heads downtown and to the convention center. Once she gets downtown and finds the car she's looking for there is a woman and a man standing next to it. The car is one of the new hover cars.
The woman has curly dark hair tied back into a low bun with dark eyes. She has trim and curvy body with honey skin tone. She's wearing dark brown shirt with a tan bodice like vest and light brown tights with boots. The man has short dark slicked back hair with hazel eyes and fair skin with a fit and toned build. He's wearing a white tee shirt under a black leather jacket with blue jeans and boots.
"Hello, Miss Delphi, I'm Eleanora" The dark hair woman said. "This is Colt." She says looking at the man next to her.
"What would I be joining?" Daphne asked handing them the card she got from Tim.
"The TDA" Eleanora said.
"The defense agents?" she asked.
"That's a part of us, we are a different TDA. If you join us you can find out more."
"Alright, I'll join." She nods.
"Get in" Colt said.
They get into the hover car then take off. They drive down side streets for a few minutes until Eleanora says "here." Colt turns down a street with an old tunnel at the end of the street. A portal opens up in the mouth of the tunnel. The car shifts into more of a shuttle shuttles close the back windows. They passed through the portal into a vortex of swirling mist and light. A minute later, they came out in a town much like the one they just left.
As Daphne gets out of the car, she looks around. As she looked down the street it seem like it went back in time, when she looked up the street it seem to go forward in time.
"Where are we?" She asked turning to the others.
"The island of lost time" Eleanora replied.
They parked outside of a building with TDA recruitment office on the front window. They walked into the office and into a meeting room in the back of the office. It had a table with a few chairs in the middle of the room. A pair of computers sat on the table. A bookcase filled with books lines the back wall and a large screen hangs on the front wall. A man sits at one of the computers. He turns to the door as it opens and stands up as they walk in.
"Oracle?" he asked.
"Atlas?" she replied.
"I haven't seen you since I moved." Samson said.
"Sorry about that, the company has been busy."
"I take it you know each other." Eleanora asked. Daphne and Samson nods. "Alright, Tim will talk to you soon." She said and left.
"I changed my hero name to Lady Fate." Daphne said.
"I thought that might have been you when, I heard of a new hero in your city."
"Still go by Atlas." She asked.
"Yeah, I couldn't come up with a better one then the one you gave me." He said. She smiled.
The screen on the wall turned on to show Tim on the screen. "That's good you know each other. Please wait for the rest of the team to get here. Feel free to look up anything you like with the books and computer in the room while you wait." Tim said then the screen turned off. The two sat down at the computers.
Eleanora walked into Tim's office. He hands her a pair of folders. "The next two" He said. She nods taking them and leaves.
