Born on a Monday...again, and again, and again...

The first news report came from Gotham City, around 10 AM.  Fittingly enough, on a Monday.

Solomon Grundy on a rampage, walking through an office building, same old same old.

Except at 10:22 AM, the newswires reported that Solomon Grundy was engaged in a firefight with policemen in New York City, as he was heading towards the JSA Brownstone.

To make matters worse...at 7:30 AM west coast time, there was a citizen complaint of a skinny albino man...matching the description of a former form of Solomon Grundy's...lying naked in the grass.  Just staring into space.

Within an hour or so, there are at least 15 reports of Solomon Grundy sightings across the US.

And the numbers kept growing...

Hal Jordan was unaware of any of these reports. He was merely heading to work, saving time by traveling invisibly as the Green Lantern.

His first hint that anything is amiss, however, is when a semi-truck flies through the air towards one of the few occupied office buildings.

His brain reacts instinctively, creating a massive glove to catch the truck, simultaneously turning himself visible.

And before he can lower the truck to the ground, he feels a massive force collide with his back.

"SOLOMON GRUNDY KILL GREEN LANTERN!"

He doesn't look normal. His body is covered in a thin black shield, almost like Hal's own green shield... the only thing which saves Hal's life from the super-strong attack.

A black ring rests on Grundy's finger.

Grundymania: Bar Hopping

"Um, thanks for the number." Jesse watches as the young man stumbles off into the welcoming arms of his drunk companions, high-fiving them as he does.

Shaking her head, she turns to her companion, tossing down the last dregs of whatever amber colored alcohol she'd been drinking.

"That's the fourth number we've been given tonight, Bette. So far, it's been two guys from seperate frat houses doing their rush, one married businessman, and one guy that I'm pretty sure was actually gay."

Re: Grundymania: Bar Hopping

"Noooo. No." Bette laughs, "That's the fourth number /you've/ gotten."

"And none of them are guys I'd want to take HOME with me. Well, maybe that last guy... " She leans over, almost falling off of her stool, to wave at him, and then straightens back up.

"I... need to be drunker. More drunk. Why isn't this working?"

Re: Grundymania: Bar Hopping

"You're still thinking too much."

Bette chuckles softly at that.

Jesse raises her glass and waves it at a passing waitress, trying to get her attention.

"Probably just need more... of this. Or that." She points at the group of frat boys. "Just got to... lushe... loosen up. " She's slurring a little, but that'll pass in about five minutes.

Far off in the distance there is suddenly a low BOOM, followed a moment later by the ringing of car alarms.

Re: Grundymania: Bar Hopping

"You need something. That's why we're here."

Bette leans in toward Jesse for a few moments and then there is that sound.

"Oh dear."

The Chimp sips his coffee and looks over the table at Caleb.

"I'm telling you, the Chinese government is hiding something. Dunno what yet, but it's something big. And I'm sure it's wrapped up with those attacks."

"Do you know what bureau within the government? Because we might want to send them the uh ... the quiet message, as it were, that targeting a member of the Outsiders is unacceptable."

He shakes his head. "I can't shake the feeling it's tied in with their new photo ops... the timing is just... too convenient."

Caleb subtly looks around the room through the tops of his eyes as he sips his tea, before casually placing it back on the causer.

"Do you know where the photo ops are being run from?" We'll have to do some homework first.

"They say they've got that station in orbit," Chimp nods. "I didn't assume that was their actual base, but having looked into it... I think it is."

He places his coffee on the saucer... and gives it a scowl.

The liquid in it is still shaking.

Caleb fails to notice Chimp's stare. A satellite. That complicates things somewhat.

Chimp's coffee (and Caleb's tea) splashing out of their cups and spilling across the table is somewhat harder to miss, though. The whole floor rumbled for a moment with that last one.

Caleb's attention is on the Chimp, calm confusion painted on his face. "I wonder wha-"

The ground rumbles again, and the lights go out on the other side of the street.

"I wager that's our cue."

That's when a car smashes through the wall of the cafe.

Chimp growls. "I guess it is."

He leaps up from the table and jumps over the remains of the car, looking for the source of the attack.
