Sometimes I can hear the chorus of indignant responses before I even hit post. :') > No time for petty vengeance. You won't be the idiot who gets caught just because they can't resist the temptation to drag things out. You have seen far too many villains fall on that particular stumbling block; in fact, you have been the cause of such falls more than once. It is a painful but effective way to win a fight, as long as you have a team that can rush in and save you before it is too late. That is a thing you no longer have. > Time To Get Going Time to make a run for it—not out into the streets, but further back into the mall where you were tossed. It's safer that way; there are more members of the Rangers you don't want to run into. Steel. Charge. You're not sure which would be worse. And you don't plan to take the risk of meeting either. Tearing through the mall, you barely register nameless stores and screaming people as you run past them. The soft interior walls are no more a hindrance than the windows as you make your own shortcut towards the fire exit. A quick look over your shoulder reveals nothing but the rising dust, and you take a moment to release the breath you've been holding. Then you open the door and step out into what you hope is not a police cordon. Luck is with you: it's just a deserted alley filled with trashcans. You're not getting a better chance. Sucking in a deep and nervous breath, you drop the deceptively innocent-looking box you stole into the trash. And in another breath, you are out on the main street again, glittering in the sunlight as cars screech to a halt around you. All that remains now is to go out in a properly villainous fashion. You have what you came for, and it's time to let this puppet go; she has done her job. ‣ And yet, I can't quite resist lingering inside her brain. ‣ Reluctantly, I start loosening my tethers to Lady Argent's mind. Mission accomplished! We can now disconnect from this body without losing data. Do we do that ASAP, or take advantage of our last few minutes of access to government servers superheroes?
