Places of Importance
- Lower East Side. The neighborhood in southeast Manhattan where the characters live. In the early 2000s it was becoming highly gentrified, but as the century progressed a number of local people, including Ben Grimm (who had grown up on Yancy St), fought to keep the local character as much as possible and ensure some lower and middle class housing would still be available. It is now a highly diverse neighborhood, with both native New Yorkers (of all ethnicities) and recent immigrants (some not even from Earth!) living boisterously side by side.
- Barrack Obama Community High School. Formerly East Side Community High School. The school all of the characters attend.
- Future Foundation. The organization set up by Reed and Sue Richards to maintain his patents and better the human condition. Currently ran by Franklin Richards while his father is away.
- The Warehouse. A warehouse owned but mostly forgotten by the Future Foundation on the East River in Brooklyn, across from the Lower East Side and near the Brooklyn terminus of the Williamsburg Bridge. Stores many pieces of "obsolete" (by the standards of Reed Richards) technology. There is, of course, a small underground train to the Warehouse from Ben Grimm's townhouse.
- Aurora Integrated Measurements. A medium sized high technology laboratory in Lower East Side, where Beth's mother works and Beth is an intern. Interestingly, the logo of the lab is an abstract stylized flying insect, maybe a bumblebee? Maybe a wasp? Maybe a yellowjacket? Hard to tell.
- The Dugan Memorial Holding Facility, aka the Fridge. A joint SHIELD/UN secure facility deep underground with an entrance at the small island once known as Belmont or U Thant Island in the river near the United Nations complex. Currently holding a number of important alleged war criminals who pose special security problems, such as Erik Killmonger and Princess Zanda.
- The Barber Shop. A speakeasy in a basement on 3rd Street on the Lower East Side frequented by all kinds of shadowy types looking for a place to relax. Gramps frequents it, and used to take Todd there a lot, until Grams put her foot down and he had to do it secret-like. It is completely non-descript, with only a small red and blue striped barber pole tucked in next to the basement door, and a small printed sign on the door that reads (handwritten additions are in italics):
|NO: guns, knives, bows hammers, boomerangs, throwing stars, nunchuks, weird oriental poking/slicing things of any kind, lasers (unless internal), nuclear/biological/chemical wpns, JUST NO WEAPONS DAMNIT YOU KNOW WHAT A WEAPON IS, JESUS!,LMD's this means you Fury, politics, vendettas, fighting (except in the back) Two more heads might take your place, but we have a special trashcan in the back for yours|
- The Blue Grotto - a martini bar, somewhat old-school haunt of some gangsters including Eddie Rimes. Doorman is Devon "Shoot". Has a smoker's speakeasy in the basement. Has a Mermaid.
- Old Avengers Mansion Museum
- The Microverse - A microscopic universe full of strange planets like the human-inhabited Homeworld which is made up of diverse spherical habitats that are linked together in the fashion of a molecular chain, lush jungle world Kaliklak (resembling a large atom) where the dominant species is the insect-like Insectivorids, and the now-devastated planet Spartak (resembling a molecule with only a pair of atoms, but with enormous spike-like mountains emerging from all sides) former home planet of the race of Acroyears. The Microverse is separated from the Macroverse (Earth) by a barrier referred to as The Spacewall which is difficult to traverse without the correct technology. Normally, natives of the Microverse who pierce the Spacewall to reach Earth (and those who used Dr. Phillip Prometheus' "Prometheus Pit" at Human Engineering Life Laboratories (H.E.L.L.)) arrive the size of action figures, their vehicles the size of toys. Natives of Earth arrive in the Microverse as giants. Other methods may or may not possess this limitation, such as Reed Richards' Reducta-Craft which allowed three members of the Fantastic Four to enter the Microverse at the same size as the inhabitants. Myrmidon's Battle Cruiser appears to combine both relative size modes, allowing the ship and its crew/passengers to be either the same size as their Earth counterparts or the size of action figures/toys. The Acroyears still cruise through the Microverse as refugees in their fleet of space arks. The status of Kaliklak and Homeworld in the current year have not yet been established.

- The bookstore at the mall
Other Items/Things of Interest
- ST: "ST" stands for SentaiToku, a messaging/chat/information sharing app with incredibly tight security used by various super-hero types, mostly younger, as a social media platform. You get into the network by invitation only through a "vouching" mechanism, where the more existing longer-term users vouch for you, the more access you have. Originally designed by students at the Pan-Asian School for the Unusually Gifted under the tutorship of Hiro Takachiho (the designer of Baymax), it has spread world-wide. Not approved by SHIELD, the Avengers, or most anyone else who could be considered a parental figure. "ST" is often used as a verb, as in "ST me the deets and I'll get those weapon specs for you", or "I ST'ed White Tiger to see if she wanted to go out, but she invisibled me."
- Teen Titans Vol 10, #28 - the last issue written by Neil Gaiman before his retirement. Pencils by Sam Revere.
- World Series 2033 - a game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Seoul Supersonics. Todd won big betting on the Reds with knowledge of the future.
When they first met
The group fought a giant robotic spider attacking Daily Bugle Inc. They fought together because they came to realize they were all trying to save innocents. They specifically saved Daniel Engermann, a lawyer for DBI and Sefu's legal guardian in NYC. Uncle Ben gave Peter a key to the Warehouse after this fight. They found strange, indecipherable symbols inside the giant robot spider.

- Myrmidon and his team from NYC are in the locker room, getting themselves psyched up, and meeting some of their competition.
- Beth and Evie arrive at MSG, where Evie is immediately singled out by Sasha, one of the popular girls at Obama High, for not telling everyone who Evie is. The popular girls ignore Beth. Evie manages to deftly evade both Sasha's questions and her invitation to hang out after the competition.
- Peter and his Uncle Ben are already in their seats in MSG, waiting for the action to start.
- Peter runs into a gaggle of girls who want to hang out with him after the event. Peter is oblivious to the implications.
- In the crowd, both Absorbing Man (Beth's father), and his ex-wife, Titania, are spotted. They are both cheering on a young contestant named Marsha MacPhernan.
- Beth tells Creel that she is his daughter. He doesn't handle the news particularly well.

The Age of Rama-Tut
(March 24, 2018)
- The scene opens on the gigantic pyramids of New Heliopolis, the city formerly known as New York City.
- Nomad is a slave, working on the latest pyramid monument to the Pharaoh. She just killed one of the slave overseers. She decides running is preferable to being a slave.
- Shimmer is robbing a bank with her father, the Absorbing Man. They make off with a large amount of gold but split up to avoid being captured. They agree they'll meet back at the Temple of Loki. Shimmer is almost caught by the police, but manages to smooth talk her way out.
- The Hood is being briefed by his grandfather, Head of Security G.W. Bridge. They speak about a plan to assassinate a group of dignitaries from a MicroVerse, who are to meet with the Pharaoh.
- Speaking of those dignitaries, Prince Myrmidon and his father, King Acroyear, emerge from a Prometheus Pit, and are welcomed by the Pharaoh. Myrmidon notices a bas-relief depicting the Pharaoh fighting and killing people who the readers would recognize as the Fantastic Four. It also shows that Rama-Tut is (of course) the Pharaoh.
- Positron finds himself in a weird place, surrounded by fog and no idea how he got here. He is attacked by a space phantom (who had been impersonating Peter's mother), who wants to take Peter to meet the phantom's 'Master'. Peter beats on the phantom and then agrees to meet the master.
- Nomad tries to recover the one item she has left from her life before she became a slave; a shield. It's hidden in the Central Square, which, unfortunately for Evie, is currently filled with people who have come to see the delegation of Acroyears. Evie starts a riot in the crowd so she can recover her shield unnoticed. But for some reason, she and Myrmidon lock eyes and both get a weird feeling.
- Shimmer returns to the Temple of Loki, but realizes her father hasn't made it back yet. Myrmidon decides to leave his far too opulent guest rooms and go explore New Heliopolis for himself.
- The Hood realizes that the proposed assassination will end up also killing thousands of civilians and will probably start a rebellion against Rama-Tut's rule. However, Todd also likes how important he is and all the authority he has in this reality.
- Peter meets up with Immortus, insults and gloating commence, but the outcome is that Peter is told he does not exist in this reality, he must save his family from being killed by Rama-Tut in ancient Egypt. Peter goes all explodey again and creates an exit for himself out of Limbo. "Never give a Richards five uninterrupted minutes with access to a computer."
- Evie helps Absorbing Man in his fight against a Servitor, with Beth showing up right at the end. Beth and Evie share a weird feeling like they should know one another. All three enter the Temple of Loki.
- Myrmidon, hearing the fight against the Servitor, sees the three leaving the scene, and decides to follow them. Unbeknownst to him, Todd has also been following Myrmidon, as he should not be AWOL from the palace. The two meet up just outside the Temple of Loki and proceed to get into a disagreement. This gives the Temple time for everyone to evacuate.
- Peter gets a device from Immortus that will allow him to exist outside of Limbo. He finally leaves Limbo to meet up with the others. While this device does tether him to reality again, it also makes Peter exist in every time simultaneously, so Peter is constantly shifting between all the possible versions of himself.
- Peter shows up at the Temple, calls Nomad and Shimmer by their names, and basically explains what's wrong and that they have to stop Rama-Tut from killing his family, the Avengers (who shouldn't be there), and Doctor Strange (who also shouldn't be there).
- The team, using Myrmidon's battlecruiser and Evie's research, infiltrate the Throne Room so they can get close enough to Rama-Tut's time machine (that happens to be the Sphinx). Peter gets to the controls and takes them all back to ancient Egypt, where he promptly takes off to rescue his family. Todd and Myrmidon go to assist him, while Beth goes to rescue Doctor Strange and Evie goes to rescue the Avengers (because she remembers 'Uncle' Clint telling her something about this adventure). Everyone has their memories of the 'correct' timeline back now.
- Fights ensue, adults are saved from death, it is discovered that this all came about because of something to do with Todd and the acolytes of the god Konshu. Beth and Doctor Strange have a good conversation (Beth even allows him to read her mind).
- The team returns to the present to find the timeline restored and they celebrate a job well done.

- After returning from Ancient Egypt where they corrected the Rama-Tut infected timeline, the team finds themselves back in the Warehouse. However... they discover that it appears to be a week earlier than they left; it is the morning after Regionals again.
- This means that Peter receives a worried call from his Uncle Ben, and Beth receives a worried call from her mother. Both are in trouble for staying out all night. Peter is able to escape any punishment by simply explaining that there was time travel involved. But Beth's mother saw that Creel was at the wrestling and is freaked out.
- Basically, the team knows that the Priests of Konshu had a 'voodoo doll' of Earth, and they were going to do a ritual to make Earth more 'just'. This somehow opened the door for Rama-Tut to change the timeline. The kids now realize that they have to stop the Priests from doing their ritual, which is scheduled to happen that night.
- So in the meantime, before the ritual is due to happen, the boys (Peter, Myrmidon, and Todd) go to Uncle Ben's for pancakes, (Myrmidon is adored by the general public along the way) and the girls (Beth and Evie) go to face down Beth's mom.
- Beth had previously managed to keep the fact that Creel had been at Regionals from her mother, but her mother now knows and is basically wanting to bolt. Evie does what she can to try and smooth out the situation, but after Beth has an explosive conversation with her mother and a not very helpful one with her Uncle James, Beth does tell her mother that Creel knows Beth is his daughter. This leads to another explosive argument (which is where Evie, after cooking a delicious breakfast for everyone, decides to make herself scarce). Beth and her mother come to a truce and sit down to eat together. Beth does NOT tell her mother about her powers.
- Evie and Peter meet up so she can help him pass his auto-shop test AGAIN (and was there perhaps a moment of disappointment on her face when she saw Peter wasn't alone? Maaaayybe.) She helps him understand the internal combustion engine by 'translating' it into more complex terms that Peter will get. While this is happening, Myrmidon and Todd spar and get testosterone everywhere.
- Peter then sciences the heck out of things, including making Cap's shield shrink down so that Evie can carry it unobtrusively with her at all times.
- Beth makes the important discovery that Dr. Strange is still alive, indicating that this timeline is not exactly the same as the one they left.
- It is time for the meeting, so the team heads for the old mansion where they know the meeting is taking place. The Hood is welcomed by the current Moon Knight (formerly known as Night Thrasher) and meets the High Priest of Konshu, Marc Spectre, the original Moon Knight. The Hood had previously made a very good impression on them, and they are happy to welcome him into their ranks.
- Things do not go the way they previously did.
- The Hood and Marc Spectre have a battle royale in the ballroom, with Myrmidon in the Battle Cruiser wreaking havoc by unleashing the Enigma Force on the whole battle zone, creating an illusion of a gigantic opera house, filled with an audience of Acroyears. Meanwhile, Shimmer, Positron, and Nomad head to take care of the Un-Earth. Which turns out to be an anti-matter bomb. That Positron now has to defuse.
- Oh and there are some AIM guys and they have a M.O.D.O.K in a cage. Which Nomad then frees. After it kindly kills the AIM guys so that Positron can concentrate on the bomb, the M.O.D.O.K, of course, tries to flee so it can launch its own nefarious plans, but fortunately, Shimmer traps it again and she and Nomad get it back into its cage.
- Positron uses the unstable molecules of his costume to contain the bomb's antimatter, but this basically means sacrificing his costume, and Peter ends up being a tad underdressed, wearing only his boxers, for the rest of the adventure.
- By the end of the night, the Un-Earth bomb is defused, M.O.D.O.K is recaptured, Marc Spectre is dealt with and the timeline seems... Ok?
(June 9, 2018)
- Evie calls her 'Aunt' Sharon to bring S.H.I.E.L.D and clean up the mess left over at the mansion. Specifically, the MODOK and anti-matter bomb shaped messes. Sharon sort of asks Evie if she's heard from her parents and Evie confesses she hasn't. She mentions that everyone is kinda mad at Sharon right now. But they agree to eventually go have a steak dinner and talk things out.
- Todd discovers that, using information he had from the time travelling they did, he did indeed win his outrageous World Series bet on the Cincinnati Reds! He goes to the Barbershop to collect his winnings. Bookie is of course, not happy with this. Myrmidon and Evie accompany Todd to the 'shop. Myrmidon takes part in the celebration and Evie strikes up a conversation in French with long-time Captain America opponent (now retired), Batroc the Leaper.
- In the meantime, Beth, not wanting to strain her relationship with her mother any further, decides to simply go home, and Peter heads to the Warehouse to create himself a new costume to replace the one he lost in containing the anti-matter bomb. He also sends an email to his sister, Valeria, Queen of Latveria. Myrmidon also comes to the Warehouse at this point (after the party at the Barbershop is done) and questions Peter about his sister, for he is interested in perhaps meeting an Earth monarch.
- Todd returns home from the Barbershop party and is confronted by his grandmother, who is waiting up for him. His Gramps is out on one of 'adventures' and Grams is none too happy. She knows about Todd's superheroics and is very convinced that if he keeps at it, he's going to die young.
- It's the next morning and time for... School!
- Evie and Beth further get on mean-girl Sasha's bad side when Evie sticks up for Myrmidon after overhearing Sasha make a disparaging remark about his looks.
- Todd gets a message from his grandfather that he's fine and home now and that Todd should "tell Evie that her mom says hi."
- After a slightly odd pep-talk from Myrmidon, Peter passes his auto shop exam with a C+! Autoshop teacher Johnny Blaze is impressed that Peter did manage to pass at all. The gang meets up at lunch to celebrate Peter's passing grade. Peter invites everyone to come to the Latverian embassy with him to meet his sister.
- During lunch, Todd tells Evie her mom says hi, and Evie gets upset, taking out her frustration at her parents not being around on the messenger. She apologizes to Todd, but is still upset enough that that night, she complains to Sam (aka Sam Wilson, the Falcon) about the message and her parents' lack of contact with her. Sam says she's right to feel that way, and that she's different from her parents in that Evie cares more about people's feelings than they do.
- The next day, the gang heads to the Latverian embassy at the UN. While in transit, Myrmidon questions Peter about Latveria and Doctor Doom (it is discovered that 3/5 members of the group have parents who have tangled with Doom at least once). There have been no reporters allowed in Latveria for 2 years, and there are many people lined up at the embassy, looking to emigrate to Latveria.
- Before they go in, a Vishanti priest passes Beth some literature, which turns out to be a message from Dr. Strange, who basically says the lines of communication between them are still open.
- The group is wary in the embassy; Evie can't detect any subliminal messages in the pro-Latveria promotional videos being played everywhere though.
- Eventually they find Valeria in a workshop in the basement, working away on something, and not really paying attention to the gang. She tells Peter where he can find Doom's time travel device and lets him take it, as she is busy 'saving the world'. Myrmidon, not really liking the way Valeria is kind of ignoring everyone, tries to provoke her into acknowledging them, but it goes terribly, Valeria gets angry and orders him out of the embassy. This makes Myrmidon quite sure that Valeria is up to something nefarious. And to back this feeling up, Evie finds a robot that looks like Tess I, something the others had previously tangled with. Myrmidon looks into where the people are lining up, and everything there seems to be on the up and up... BUT he discovers that all the staff at the embassy are Doombots. At this point, Myrmidon gets it into his head that he should go invade Latveria all on his own.
- As the others head out, Todd sees Greg, who slips a data card to Todd as they shake hands. Evie lets them both know that she noticed this transfer.
- After some security procedures are put into place so that Todd can access what Greg gave him, and Myrmidon is convinced to come back from his solo 'invasion', Peter, not wanting to think badly of his sister, does listen to Myrmidon's worries, and hacks into a SHIELD satellite. This shows them the rather unnerving image of a half million people standing in perfectly lined up rows, completely immobile underneath Doom's castle. While this discovery is going on, Todd checks the data card (by himself, and with no spyware installed!), to discover that it's Valeria on the other end. She has a proposition for him; she knows that Peter has found out about the mysterious people and will be 'invading' Latveria. If Todd agrees to do something for Valeria when Peter invades, then she will make sure Todd and his family are well rewarded...

Normal Teenager Things
(August 25, 2018)
- About a month after Latveria, news about the government change is just coming out. The official story from the new government (the People's Republic of Latveria) is that there was a 'power' accident and Valeria died in the accident. The country is in mourning for its Queen, and are planning a state funeral. Interestingly enough, none of Valeria's actual family seems to be invited to the funeral.
- Evie has been offered a job with SHIELD, to basically help them investigate who is recruiting young superhumans and getting them to commit crimes. Evie is mulling this offer over. She has also realized that there seems to be an agreement between her parents, Aunt Sharon, and Sam Wilson that Steve Rogers is being kept hidden from the world in general (and his former enemies specifically), so he is on the run with Natasha and Bucky.
- Peter, Evie, and Beth go to the mall after school - Peter wants to pick up his new book (vol 23 ASoIaF). Brick and mortar bookstores and actual physical books are a bit of a rarity in 2033. Peter's copy of the extravagant new ASoIF volume is his birthday present from Franklin.
- Beth stops at home first to talk to her mom - she already figured out Beth was superpowered.
- Beth promises to be one of the "good guys", and to tell her mom if she ever talks to Carl Creel again.
- Evie and Peter get dinner together at the mall (Wakandan food). They talk about their unconventional upbringings that, in both their cases, didn't allow for much 'normal teenager things'.
- Ben Ulrich Jr (a gossip columnist, much to his father's chagrin) interrupts their meal, asks if Evie and Peter are on a date (which they both quickly deny), and then asks Peter uncomfortable questions about Valeria, but Peter gets rid of him and wipes his phone. (except for one picture of Evie and Peter eating)
- At the bookstore, two people who look a lot like The Wizard are waiting in line. It becomes clear that they will cause trouble if they don't get a book.
- Peter sets off the fire alarm to clear the mall.
- Wizard clones attack Peter, but also fight among themselves, as one of the clones isn't really interested in fighting.
- Team defeats the clones (physically and emotionally) and stay to clean up the mess.
- Ben Ulrich Jr. crashes the aftermath of the fight and again asks too many questions. Peter wipes his phone again.
- Beth decides she will go see Dr Strange after all, and suddenly finds herself in Dr Strange's study.
- A talk with Dr Strange reveals what he has gone through to still be alive this time, and that Beth's powers originate from Asgardian magic (change playbook - Nova)
Warehouse of Horror
(Oct. 27, 2018)
- It's Hallowe'en! And as part of Operation: Normal Teenager, Evie decides to throw a Hallowe'en party. At the Warehouse.
- The moment the invites go out, there is much maneuvering (should Todd get beer? Yes.), planning (is everything dangerous in the Warehouse moved? Maybe?), social engineering (who to invite?), and educating (answer any questions Myrmidon has about this Earth ritual). By the time the event finally rolls around, Evie's feeling like she's been planning for the D-Day invasion of France.
- In the meantime, Beth has been hanging out with Dr. Strange and learning about her NEW POWERS!
- Todd, who has taken it upon himself to procure beer from Bookie, (who eventually gives Todd the beer in exchange for style tips so he feels confident enough to ask Silver Sable out) spends a lot of his time before the party dodging Sasha because she seems concerned that there should be booze at the party.
- Finally, it is the night of the party and costumes are unveiled! Beth has put together an elaborate Acroyear costume (which pleases Myrmidon a great deal, obvs), Myrmidon is dressed as the Thing, Todd is dressed as DC comic book villain Lex Luthor, Evie is dressed as a ballerina, and Peter is dressed as OG Groot.
- Peter has worked hard all week, setting up an incredibly realistic and scary haunted house inside the Warehouse for everyone to go through. He and Evie do a final safety inspection of the Warehouse before the party-goers arrive.
- However... Peter might've succeeded in making it a little TOO scary, as the many, many terrified screams attest to, and especially when the gang witnesses poor Ajak (dressed as latest hip-hop sensation Ryze) booking it out of there at high speed, and Hilde (who is dressed as Hilary Clinton) is likewise destroying H.E.R.B.I.Es who are playing their roles a little too convincingly. Todd calms Ajak down (and allows the boy to save face), while Evie and Peter calm Hilde down. Evie also suggests to Peter that maybe he 'dial the scary-stuff down a bit'. He does.
- Beth has been hanging with Prince Vyron of Lemuria (who made a stink about being let in), dancing with him, but not falling for his advances.
- It's noticed that a door to the basement (cause there's a basement?) is open, and when investigated, they find Kevin (dressed as an NY Yankee baseball player) and Caitlin (dressed as a Musketeer) making out down there. They are told to leave, but unfortunately, they become affected by the negative zone energy seeping through a portal that also has someone (specifically Blastarr) trying to get through it. Uh oh.
- Beth puts up a barrier to hold back the negative zone energy from getting any further while Evie keeps Catilin busy and Todd shoves Kevin through the barrier to strip him of the energy (as both Caitlin and Kevin were negatively affected by the negative energy). Myrmidon deploys a device to suck all the negative energy back in.
- While this is happening, Peter has realized that the portal is not just a portal, but is also projecting negative zone energy around the entire planet. Peter taps into that energy to use it an help close the gate, but had to go through the portal it to seal it behind him.
- The portal closes behind Peter, leaving the others stunned, but they realize that thanks to Myrmidon's modification, Peter is in the Microverse instead of the negative zone.
- Beth immediately teleports away, to Dr. Strange. Evie calls in a favor to Aunt Sharon, the cops show up to shut down the party (specifically, Beth's Uncle James' special cop unit. Uncle James talks to Evie and asks if Beth was there).
- It is agreed that they need to go find (and rescue) Peter in the Microverse.
- The issue ends showing the Fixer, in prison... except he's not really in his cell, he's somehow escaped.
