ANDREW PERRON as Kid Enthusiastic
EDWARD HAUSER as Genesis
and introducing ANTONIO MENTEGUIAGA as Maia
THE STORY SO FAR: There is *power* flowing from the Net to humanity and
back! The net.powered have gathered together on a budget to form - the
Legion of Net.Heroes!
History: To be told!
Description: A tan woman with shoulder-length dark hair and almond
eyes. She seems to be rather young, probably under the age of twenty.
She obviously keeps herself in shape, good shape, probably the type
of shape with a six pack under her hoodie. A white hoodie, with red
triangles running across the hems. Her black jeans aren't much to
talk about, but the giant hammer that seems as if it were made of
clockwork they're hiding behind probably has quite a few stories
Maia leans back in the chair. "...Oh hey, you remember when we met,
Kid Enthusiastic says, "Sure I do! It was only like a month ago. I
remember it like it was yesterday..."
Kid Enthusiastic sits at Genny's desk, carefully some abomination of
plastic and circuit boards to the back of a discount winter glove.
Maia falls in the center of the road outside, her hammer breaking her
fall with a mighty crash. She lays against the pole of the giant
Kid Enthusiastic hops up and opens the window. "Hey, people are trying
to science up here-- oooooh!" He climbs out the window with ease and
runs down the fire escape. A car brakes sharply in front of Maia,
blowing angrily on its horn.
Maia unsteadily gets to her feet, the hammer flipping its weight back
into her hand during the process. "And I'm busy being uh. ....Um.
What street is this?
Kid Enthusiastic grabs Maia's hand and yanks her over to the sidewalk.
"No dying! Hello! Rogers Street!"
Maia says, "Rogers huh. And which city? State? World. ...Universe. Day,
time, month. I kinda just flew through a space rip."
Kid Enthusiastic says, "Well, you're on Earth, in Netropolis, and it's
November Twenty-Thirteen! Um, universe... one? Two? Q?"
Maia says, "I'm from uh. Universe uh. ...One of them. Maybe I don't
know which universe it was.""
There's a thump from nearby, down the sidewalk, as an armored female in
green lands. "You're in universal stream... uh, what was it... Muxis
086.0 Zeta." She chuckles and shakes her head as she comes closer.
"At least, I think that's it."
Kid Enthusiastic ah! He waves to Genny. "Right, what she said."
Maia says, "Right." She points towards the distance, "Wherever that rip
in space time that might be over that way leads to it where I'm from.
You seem like the type who would know something like that.""
Genesis glances upward, peering at the rip. "Unfortunately, I can't say
I've got a lot of actual experience. The computer in my head likes to
impart tidbits of knowledge sometimes, though, which is why I know
the designation system..." She catches herself before she rambles too
far, looking back at Maia. "Looks like you're some manner of
superhuman, though. Which means you landed outside the right
Kid Enthusiastic rubrubs his chin. He's still holding the needle and
thread from earlier, and peers at the rip thoughtfully...
Maia says, "Well, I woke up this morning, and my roof was missing. And
part of the sky. So I put on my usual hoodie just in case, and
grabbed the hammer. Wait did you just say superhuman?""
Genesis nods. "Unless that hammer's hollow, anyway. You're moving that
thing way too easily, and from the sound of it, you flew through your
world's end of the rift."
Maia says, "I thought it was just some sort of cool metal and magic
inscription or something with the neato gear design its got!" She
offers it to Genesis."
Genesis hefts the hammer easily in her hands, frowning thoughtfully as
she does. "Hm. Yeah... definitely not light. So you've got flight, or
at least some sort of hammer-throwing trickery, and
super-strength." She holds the hammer to her ear, arching her brow.
Kid Enthusiastic says, "...it's probably not a bomb, right? Bombs don't
have powers, other than blowing up."
Genesis purses her lips. "Depends on the bomb."
Kid Enthusiastic meep.
Maia says, "Wait the thing is ticking? ...Hmmm." She puts her hand back
onto the handle. "What about now?""
Genesis nods. "Yep. Still ticking... it's probably an intended
function, though, not a self-destruct or something nasty." She
thinks. "Some sort of force multiplier, maybe?"
Maia says, "Hmmm." She takes it back, and offers it to the Kid. "What
happens when you hold it?""
Kid Enthusiastic takes it and falls over. "...owwwww..."
Maia says, "...Huh. So is he just weak or are you really weird,
Genesis ack. She takes the hammer from Kid E, handing it back to Maia
and helping the young hero to his feet. "You okay?" She turns to
Maia. "I'm weird. Though Kid E here's... what are you again, 12?"
Maia takes the hammer back with a nod, "Cool! Its only for me! ...Oh!
Sorry!" She rushes over to help Genesis and Kid.
Kid Enthusiastic dusts himself off. "In this universe? Ten!"
Genesis does miss a beat, but just barely. She looks over at Maia.
"Don't think we've introduced ourselves yet... I'm Genesis, and this
is Kid Enthusiastic." She extends a hand to the girl.
Kid Enthusiastic shakes Maia's other hand. "That's me."
Maia shakes Genesis's hand with her free hand, since Kid seems to have
already shaken the other, "Sounds good to me! ...Think theres any
chance of me getting through that time rip thing any time soon?"
Genesis looks up. "...oh dear. Right. It's closing." She wraps her arm
around Maia's waist, holding the hammer-wielding girl close. "With
any luck, I can toss you through before it seals up... hold on
Maia holds onto her hammer on tight.
Kid Enthusiastic crosses both sets of fingers!
Genesis coils her legs and jumps, springing upward toward the portal.
Once she's close enough, she holds Maia at arm's length, twirling
around a couple of times before tossing the girl like a shot-put
toward the rapidly-shrinking tear...
Maia makes it through! Only for another rip to open right next to
Genesis and Kid, and she flies out at an easy 60 mph and clipping
that dude's car. "...I think thats some sort of no?"
Genesis sighs and shakes her head, alighting on the street beside Maia
and helping her up. "Unless you want to try again."
Kid Enthusiastic blinks. "That was awesome! You should try for
Maia looks into the portal. "Thats some really funky darkness. Think I
could just crash her until we figure something more proper out? You
guys seem to know a thing or two about this whole super thing."
Genesis nods. "Sure." She smiles, gesturing to the building across the
way. She leads everyone off of the road. "We're on the second floor
of this building here. It's office space, but we sleep there too" She
leans in and whispers, "Don't tell the zoning board!"
Kid Enthusiastic gives a big cheesy wink.
Maia nods in an understanding way, "So I'm Maia."
Genesis smiles. "Nice to meet you, Maia!" She pushes the front door
open, dusting herself off. "We'll need to take you out on an alert
soon, see if we can't puzzle out more of what you can do."
Kid Enthusiastic nods! "I'll start working on the Mystery of the
Mysterious Planar Rip right away!"
Maia says, "So like, he's your sidekick or sommat? And just what are ya
Genesis grins. "Nah. We're the start of a superhero league, to be
assembled before the arrival of a... well, apocalyptic-level threat."
She's silent for a moment, then continues. "...trust me, it'd be
unfair of me to call Kid E my 'sidekick'. He's just as important to
this operation as I am."
Kid Enthusiastic pipes up, "Plus, wouldn't I have to have, like, the
same powers? Kid Genny, away! and all that."
Maia blinks, "And you're just like. Sitting here in an office
Genesis says, "Justice League's got the Watchtower, right?"
Maia says, "Yeah?"
Genesis says, "Well, we don't have the budget they must have had. This
is what we've got."
Kid Enthusiastic nods, scratching the back of his head.
Maia says, "....Right then! So do I like, need a superhero name or
something like that?"
Kid Enthusiastic says, "Well, what did you call yourself over on the
Genesis hm. "If you'd like. There's no need, really... you're new to
this world, so no need to establish a secret identity."
Maia says, "Maia! I just got the hammer thing today!"
Kid Enthusiastic nods. "Yeah, you can just call yourself that if you
Maia says, "Thats not very superheroey though."
Genesis pauses, and takes a step back. "Hmm. You know what you remind
Maia says, "What?"
Genesis says, "Ever played Final Fantasy? The first one in
particular... you remind me of a White Mage. They could use hammers,
and their robes were white with the red... triangly things. I'd
suggest something along that line."
Maia looks down at her hoodie, "Well, I mean, thats what the hoodie
took its inspiration...I like it!"
Kid Enthusiastic oooooooohs. "That's awesome!"
Kid Enthusiastic says, "Well, then, Maia, welcome to the LNH!"
Kid Enthusiastic says, "...and that's what happened."
Maia says, "Aside from a few plot holes that occured in issues 59 and
63, sounds about right!"
Kid Enthusiastic shhhh! He looks left and right.
Kid Enthusiastic says, "Ixnay on the issues-hay. Genny doesn't Get It."
Maia blinks and nods, putting her finger up to her lips.
Genesis pointedly ignores this.
