Ray Zel stood outside the door to the meeting room where six brave heroes had answered the call to protect humanity. It was more than he had hoped for. Ray nervously played with the button on the suit coat he had worn.
“Come Ray and meet those that will stand with you.” A man in his late forties with his dark hair just beginning to grey placed his hand on Ray’s shoulder.
“How long will we last Doc? We have no idea about Varis’ power or who fights with him.” Ray turned from the partially opened door to look at his mentor.
“How long will any of us last? We can never know but what I do know is that what you are doing now will never be forgotten.”
“Your right Doc.” Turning back to the door Ray took a deep breath and pushed it opened all the way.
Varis looked out over the city skyline. ‘Somewhere’ he thought ‘my naïve brother is attempting to stop my plans of ruling these pathetic humans. One has joined me but others will fall in behind when they feel the might of my power.’ A knock sounded from the hotel door shifting quickly to Mr. Johnson, the aging business man Varis was impersonating, and answered the door.
