Author's Note:  This being a cascade, I'd best not overthink my 
response.  I have at least slept on it, though.


The lady mage was called, Rainshade.  She was trying to control a 
conference room of free-willed superhumans.  Oh, joy.

She told those others, "Like I said, you're here because you're somehow 
associated with this RACCies universal ceremony.  And we have to stop 
its power from being hijacked, by the Russians or something."

The others started babbling.  It must have been January Frost who was 
the loudest.  "Exactly *which* Russians?"

"Something came from beyond, last year here.  We hear, he was sponsored. 
  By Russians."  A video showed, of some mastermind political villain 
from one of those other Earths.  Several seemed to recognize him.

Those others still babbled.  For the record, they were Mary Mystery, 
MaryBeth the Hit Girl, Love Princess Gorgoneion, and Starsmasher, in 
approximate decreasing order of annoyance.

So Rainshade continued.  "He called himself, President Trump.  He jumped 
out of Ultimate Darkness to get here last year.  Someone dragged him 
back.  But there're rumors he was sponsored..."

And then...  A gem on her bracelet buzzed.  "Oh, crap.  Shadowy Evil 

And then...  The floor rumbled.

Rainshade's head swung both ways, in finest comic book manner.  Back at 
center, she said...  "Crap.  More important than I thought.  You're 
going now."

January Frost yelled, "Exactly where?"

"To President Trump World!  And Starsmasher, ta very much for your 

Starsmasher's torch erupted.  It opened a cosmic portal, to another 

Starsmasher yelled to Rainshade.  "But that's not what it does!"

"It is if you use it right!"

January Frost exclaimed.  Mary Mystery raised her hands in a defensive ward.

But it was too late.

NEXT:  Mission, or Intervention???
