Necessary Evil: A Venture in Star City
The year is 2016. The Earth has been under the control of the V’sori Empire for over two years. Humans with extraordinary abilities, commonly known as super-powers, have existed for nearly a century. Those who used their powers for altruistic reasons were know as super-heroes. It is believed somewhere around 98% of them have been killed by the V’sori.
Various resistance movements have been quashed by the V’sori, but the most promising has only just begun to act – Omega. Omega was started by the greatest criminal mastermind of the modern age, Dr. Destruction. Its members are largely made up of former super-beings the world once called villains. Dr. Destruction has said that only he is the rightful ruler of the Earth – “not some alien scum from the back corners of the galaxy.”
Omega is organized into cells, each of which is only aware of the other members of its own cell to prevent betrayal. Cells are contacted with their mission information through blind drops, secret codes, and most commonly, encoded radio broadcasts.
The Face of Destruction
Dr. Destruction has been practicing super-villainy since the early 1990s. His first escapades were the stuff of comic books – bank robberies, jewel heists, and kidnappings. After being thrashed by Champion one too many times, the vengeful Dr. Destruction vanished for a few years, then returned with more power, more weaponry, and more willingness to use it.
No one knows who the Doctor really is, or what his face looks like behind the mask. His powers are well-known, however. In his past battles with Champion and other super-heroes he displayed inhuman strength, energy blasts, teleportation, and mind control. What inherent powers he possesses and what might come from his incredible devices is anyone’s guess.
