The Adventures Of Philip Tubman, Shoe Salesman

  If anyone can explain to me how I ended up getting arrested for indecent exposure in the middle of Manhattan,  I would like to know.  The last thing I remember was fitting this rather attractive women with a nice red high heel shoe.   She actually smiled at me, and that doesn't happen too often.
   The police, if they are police, they wear funny uniforms with black and white squares on them, tell me that I was in a battle with space aliens and super heroes.   This would be funny, if it were someone else they were arresting.   
     I was picked up  for being naked on Fifth Avenue and 40th Street.  What happened to my sweater and khakis!
      The police say that Moon Girl was fighting something called a Jellyman in Bryant Park.   It held her down and began to smother her when she tossed it off her with her gravity warping powers.   She started acting crazy and talking like she was from a Shakespear play.      
   Proxy,  formery Elusion, joined the fight and pretty much burnt the Jellyman to a crisp.  He animated a streetlight and had it electrify the liquid robot.   The police then say that Col. Marshal Strong, Dark Warrior and Scion showed up. Moon Girl said some nasty things about Men and attacked them.  She tried to get Scion to join her and they high fived each other.   Scion is pretty crafty, and stunned her with some crimson energy.  I know, it sounds crazy, but that is what the police report says.   
     When Moon Girl was out,  four blazing meteors hit Bryant Park.   Or maybe its metorites.  Oh, its meteoroids? Meteors?  Well it wasn't anything meteorish.  It was spacemarines.  Spacemarines from space.
    The spacemarines used energy parachutes to jump from their space ships to Manhattan.   They then started attacking Moon Girl.   They used energy guns like right out Flash Gordon!
    Dark Warrior, Scion, Proxy and Col. Strong fought the spacemarines.  Proxy copied Moon Girl's gravity powers and immobilied two of them, while Dark Warrior and Scion beat down two more.  During this,  three superpowered aliens came down to help out the marines.
     The super aliens, who we found out later, were called Mindstar, Worldbreaker, and the Organic Machine, targeted Moon Girl.   The four heroes defended their ally.
     Now, I don't believe any of this, but the police are pretty insistent about this.   Why the cops want to tell me the plot of some Roger Corman film is beyond me.   I just want to know where my wallet is!
    Next they say that  Proxy, Dark Warrior and Scion were all attacking nothing.   They were shooting beams, rays,  and guns into the air while Worldbreaker put a beat down on Col Strong.   The superheroes all says that Mindstar had the power to change their perceptions and they thought they were fighting the bad guys when they weren't.   The Organic Machine was a living android that could change its shape and stretch.  Worldbreaker was a super strong guy that made an earthquake that did millions in structural damage to hundreds of buildings.   Mindstar could alter your thoughts.  She was really messing with the team, but for some reason,  Col Strong was immune to her power.  This is why Worldbreaker beat up up.
     Proxy made the earth come up and do his fighting and he somehow absorbed Worldbreaker's power to sense vibrations.  Because of this, he could figure out that Mindstar was messing with their heads.  He managed to shoot her a few times with his pistol.  I felt bad, because even though she was an alien, she looked like a 14 year old girl.
     Proxy used his absorbed gravity power to suspend Worlbreaker a hundred feet or so in the air.  This pretty much neutralised him.  He then put the Organic Machine in an earth sphere that he could not break out of.
     Together the four then located Mindstar and Scion managed to stun her with her powers.   Dark Warrior put her head in an orb of darkness hoping to mess with her mental powers.    For some reason The Dark Warrior started acting funny and the three others saw that he was not holding anyone.  Mindstar had escaped.
   It was then that I found myself walking around naked in Midtown Manhattan. 
     If anyone finds my wallet, can you mail it to my wife, Gladys?   And tell her to let Rufus out,  I don't want to have to clean up dog poop when the police finally let me go.
  

I am scary, very, very scary.

  The following is the testimony of Wally Spec, the Dark Warrior.  As far as my telepathic probes can discern, his mind has been severly altered by the Movian telepath, Mindstar.    I can detect some serious mental tampering with his brain.  I am currently working on a way to undo the damage, but I am proceeding slowely as I don't want to damage him, or worse, unleash his latent psionic ablity that the Quidnunck says is powerful enough to destroy the world.
    What happened on November 4th, 1999 was this.  Alicia Card, Moon Girl was killed.   Her throat was slit by the Movian Assassin Mindstar.   What we can figure out is that the Movians considered her a threat as she panicked while being smothered by the JellyMan robot and she snapped.   
    When metahumans loose touch with reality their mental powers can increase exponentially.    She seemed to believe that she was one of many "Moon Maidens" and that they would enact vengence on mankind for the horrible treatment of women throughtout history.    This came out of nowhere, as Alicia showed no signs of mental illness before or after she became superpowered.
    The Movians, who have been monitoring the Earth for the past few years, fear metahumans who develop this condition.  They call it the Humuru State.  They believe that metahumans that go into the Humuru State can rewrite reality to go along with their insanity.   There is evidence to support this, as a Parthenon type building formed on the Moon near Copernicus Crater at the moment of Moon Girl's insanity manifested itself.
     Well  The Movians reacted to this by launching a pre emptive strike on Moon Girl.  They sent in four Ultramarines with advanced technology and high tech weapons.  The Dark Warrior, Proxy, Col Strong and Scion fought them off pretty easily.   The Movians then sent in a second wave with three metabeings.   
     They sent in young girl telepath and illusionist Mindstar.   They also sent in an ultra musclular teenaged boy called Worldbreaker.  The third Movian was called the Organic Machine.  The Organic Machine, from what we can tell from some debris that was left after the battle, was a living colony of nanites that was able to alter its form to what ever it pleased.  It also seemed to possess a magnetic defensive screen.
   Mindstar kept her self out  of the battle, and we believe that she was telepathically probing the five heros for weaknessesss and information.    Col Strong and Scion both thing that throughout the battle Mindstar was telepathically communicating with The Dark Warrior.  What they were talking about know one knows.   It is agreed that she was interferring with his thoughts as he was acting bizarre the entire battle.
   Proxy was able to contain the Organic Machine in an earth sphere.  He was also able to use the gravity powers he copied from Moon Girl to suspened Worldbreaker above the ground.
     He also fired three shots and hit Mindstar.    Mindstar then cast her illusions, masking her true location.   Dark Warrior covered the area in darkness trying to equalise the playing field.    Mindstar used the darkness to slit Moon Girl's throat while she lay knocked out.
     Proxy sensed Mindstar's location and pinned her to the ground with Moon Girl's gravity powers.  Scion then stunned her.   Everyone's senses returned to normal.   
   Col Strong, recovering from the beating he took from Worldbreaker, put Mindstar in cuffs, and Dark Warrior held her and put her head in a dark orb.
     Captain Atlas was called in and  he flew Worldbreaker out of the atmosphere where be beat the holy crap out of him until Movian Warships threatend to vaporise Northern Utah unless he releanted.   Atlas thought this was a fun fight and tossed Worldbreaker at the Movian Warship, putting a huge hole in its' hull.
   Scion flew upwith The Organic Machine and tossed him away.   We think he was recovered by the Movians, but no confirmation has been made on this.
       It was about this time that Col Strong noticed that the Dark Warrior was standing there with nothing in his grip.  Mindstar had used her powers on him, altering his mind.  He now thinks he is Philip Tubman, a shoe salesman from Illinois.  What Mindstar said to him, and what exactly she did to him is unknown.      Wally Spec is completely submerged in the new idenity of Philip Tubman.   The Dark Warrior's powers are also gone.   At least he can no longer destroy the world.
     Four blocks away, the dead body of Mindstar was found.  It seems she succumbed to the gunshot wounds from Proxy.   
      I was visited by a being calling it self Neutrino saying that he wants the body of their fallen saint.  If we refuse,  they we retailiate by destroying a continent.   The Movians don't seem to mess around.

   Its also came to my attention that after three hours of sitting in a lotus postion yesterday, the Dark Warrior stood up and from his chest a portal opened and out came a 6 year old boy.  The boy is comatose and except for some malnutrition, seems to be in good physical conditon.   The Dark Warrior says that his body is a conduit to another dimension that was destroyed by a being only called the Adversary.   The Dark Warrior claims to have absorbed that dimension into his body.      Through self meditation, he was about to bring out one of the enhabitants of that dimension. 
    What a great time for Wally to lose his mind...

Story Telling

Backround: Philip was born and raised in a small suburb outside of Chicago. He has never done any real travelling and spends most of his time either at the Shoe Store or at home with his wife Gladys and dog Rufus. He has been a shoe salesman for the last 15 years (see level) and spends his down time at home writing fantastical stories about Super Heroes and Villians. His knowledge of this does seem quite detailed interestingly enough. He hopes to one day publish his stories but has no real writing experience as of yet.

Mr. Tubman was  escorted by the Authorities to the Black Mesa.   While he was there he was treated very well.  He was given all sorts of medical treatment.   After two days of poking and prodding,  Mr Tubman was starting to get annoyed.   He asked to call Gladys, his wife.  At this point a nice doctor showed him some pictures of people that he was supposed to know.   And a few drawings of  people that didn't exist in this universe.
   While they upset him,  Mr Tubman kept cool.   It was around this time that he started to realise that all was not right.
   The doctor gave him some seditives and then explained that all his memories were false.  A girl called Mindstar or sometimes translated as Mental Champion, had altered his memories.   He would like his permission to fix this.    After a while Mr Tubman said yes.  While he didn't believe that story, he was aware that something was wrong topside.
    An attractive but scary woman came into the room.  She said her name  was Julie Ceaser.  She was sexy in a chisled tough girl way.  The kind of girl that Mr Tubman would never get a second glance from back home.    She just sat looking at him,  It made him uneasy, but he liked looking at her.
  At this poing his brain begane to hurt.   Images flooded him, overwhemed him.   He wasn't sure who he was anymore. 

   After what seemed like hours, but was really only seconds,  Mr Tubman was once again Wally Spec.  His true memories returned.
    Nexus informed him that Mindstar was killed during the battle, and that the Movians wish her body returned or they will destroy a continent.    They also will begin the process of recognising Earth.  If an Earthling can kill one of their saints, then their law and customs must admit that they are worthy of interstellar recognition.    The Empire of Moev wishes to establish an embassy here.

    Also, the boy that Wally pulled from the interdimensional vapors was awoken.  He says his name Is Richard Frankin.  He says his parents will be looking for him and they will be upset.   He also says that The Dark Warrior beat up his Uncle Charlie.

  What does this mean for the future?
