[The first fruits of Anakin's labors are beginning to show. He is standing beside a seemingly ordinary car - rather old and dilapidated - but as he leans in and pushes a button on the dashboard, there is a tell-tale hum and the wheels lift off of the pavement. It's a far cry from building a vessel that flies yet it is hovering and that's pretty remarkable considering the materials he had to work with.]

This won't hold up for long. [But he grins nonetheless.] It's a start.

[Anakin tilts his head back to look at the sky.]

I bet taxis could get where they're going faster if they could hover above the other cars on the road. Emergency vehicles too. There is so much air space that isn't put to use! [He doesn't really care about that; it's more an observation.] Traffic in these cities just doesn't make sense. It could be solved so easily.

THE MAJORITY REPORT: JULY 10TH, 2017
Chaos in the streets! Candidates in the bweets! This past week has been a maelstrom of bizarre miracles, rebellion, and political scrutiny.

VEE FOR VENDETTA
As seen in tabloids and the TMI blog, with very blurry photos:
The mysterious Vee, who has a passing resemblance to Veronica Sawyer, has been caught vandalizing buildings nightly. Teenage rebellion, some call it. Her signature seems to be complete with lyrics like "it's only teenage wasteland" and slogans like "fuck the police", all tagged with a V. Suspect is accused of wearing bright eighties outfits and a bandana to cover her identity and protect her nose from the fumes. She carries a croquet mallet and is considered armed.

Ms. Sawyer herself claims innocence. Leaked Heropan Police Department reports seem to support her numerous alibis.

A SIGHT FOR STARK EYES
As seen on literally every important talk show, day and night:
Spectators were shocked on the talk show "The Sight" this week, when an interview with CEO Tony Stark seemed to take on a life of its own. Stark was promoting a new line of antivirus software when they took a commercial break -- his segment seemingly done. When they returned, however, Stark asked for more time, to talk about, of all things, the legacy left by the Metahumans and the "4" app he'd been responsible for previously.

While it's common knowledge that Stark had not been himself at the time, his reticence on the subject had led many to believe that the CEO was uncomfortable with the legacy he'd left. But during the interview, he had nothing but positive things to say about it -- mostly the design of the virus, and how it allowed people to find an even playing field with the import community.

When asked if he would do it again, Stark just smiled, and responded with: "You never know."

NECROFANCY
As seen on Bwitter, Rumblr, the major social media sites, local news:
Many recently deceased individuals in De Chima are now... far less dead! RISE's Commander Sabriel has claimed responsibility in several interviews with local news, citing her actions as proof of the amazing power and benevolence of imPorts, and further proof of the need for RISE, since native authorities are unfit and unworthy of passing judgement on imPorts.

As for all the recently resurrected? Well, they lack vital signs, don't seem to heal, and are burned by sunlight and refuse to cross running water or any large body of water in general, but almost all of them seem happy to be 'alive' again when interviewed. Now, people from nearby towns and cities have started bringing their loved ones bodies to De Chima in the hope Sabriel will bring them back.

SKATERS TO THE LEFT
As seen in BlueTube, Bwitter, various trashy celebrity gossip tabloids:
Of all the imPort run panels at this year's FanPort, none have caused as much controversy as the skating panel run by imPort figure skaters Viktor Nikiforov, Yuri Plisetsky, and newcomer Otabek Altin. While fans were delighted to have their questions answered directly by the trio, it quickly became obvious that Nikiforov was uncharacteristically subdued. One panel attendee commented "It's like he wasn't even there!" Plisetsky appeared to have taken charge, answering any questions directed at his older rinkmate, but the teen also seemed to be struggling throughout the panel. Fans report he appeared sluggish, a fact particularly evident when it came time for the exhibition portion of their panel. Plisetsky, known for his superbly polished choreography, performed a piece that many felt was rushed and sloppy. Some fans speculate that the teen must not have slept the night before; there are numerous reports that Plisetsky was relying on a steady stream of coffee and espresso just to keep himself going.

Many suspect this was due to the departure of Nikiforov’s fiance, Yuuri Katsuki, earlier in the month, but events after the Q&A session paint a different story. Fans of the skaters witnessed Tohru Adachi, imPort private investigator and notably close to Nikiforov, violently slapping him across the face. While Nikiforov seemed to come out of his depressive slump after the slap, these events seem to indicate something darker. After the attack Nikiforov participated in the skating portion of the panel, performing a program that figure skating experts say was far too long for any skater to safely perform without any endurance super powers. Powers that, to this reporter's knowledge, Nikforov does not possess.

Could this have simply been a simple argument between friends? Perhaps, if friends were known to viciously strike each other. More likely, this is a red flag of a possible abusive relationship. After the exhibition, Nikiforov and Adachi were seen kissing in front of a group of fans, an event that, along with the brutal slap, has been captured and displayed on BlueTube. (Short no-audio clips available here and here.) Has Nikiforov fallen into a rebound relationship with a violent SO? It could explain his unwillingness to engage with his fans in the first half of the panel. It was only after Adachi's attack that he appeared to come to life, but was it due to being "snapped out of it", or did he fear a more serious assault? Perhaps this is why young Plisetsky harbors such a deep resentment for the detective. The animosity between the two is well documented, but the source of it has never been determined. Maybe this is the answer fans of Plisetsky have been searching for.

FLORIDA MAN DOESN'T CLEAN UP OWN MESS
As seen first as amateur video on BlueTube, then on local Heropan news stations:

2:20AM, July 7th. Amateur footage shot after the fact:
Property damage evident from what is SUSPECTED TO BE an imPort-related incident. No one could confidently identify the perpetrator, or perpetrators. Local news stations were on the scene thanks to a called-in tip.

Witnesses at the scene could not offer more concrete details.

EBB AND FLOW OF THE RIPTIDE
As seen on Bwitter and Rumblr:
When political memes started up around the other candidates, someone pointed out that Riptide had no memes about him. The internet and Riptide's fans rose to the occasion, and now, many memes of him exist and they kind of have a theme.

CODE SWITCH
The Homeland Security Advisory System has moved from GAMBOGE to FELDGRAU.

WANT TO SUBMIT TO THE MAJORITY REPORT?
The Majority Report comes out the 10th and 20th of every month. You may find details and submit here. The cut-off time is 12:01 AM PST on the 9th and the 19th for the corresponding dates.

So, first off - hi to all the new people 'round here! I'm Jaime, and I've been here for... gosh, it's gotta be, what, three years now? Longer than most people around here, with a few exceptions. Anyway, if you got any questions about how things work around here, feel free to ask me, and I'll answer if I can. Or if anyone's looking for a job at a garage, we got a position opening up - maybe even two. [ If Erik's successful, that is. With that in mind, Jaime leans back in his seat (he's at his computer desk in his room, a rumpled bed behind him with a stack of textbooks on his bedside table), and gets going on what he really wanted to talk about. ]

What I really wanted to ask you guys, though, is this: did you bother going to school here? You know, college and all that? Getting your GED's good for finding a half-decent job around here, but about a year ago, I didn't really see the point in going to college if we might not be around long enough to even get halfway through a degree. Now, though... I'm starting to reconsider.

[ He brushes a lock of hair out of his face (it's really too long, again), and continues. ]

So. If you decided to go to school, why'd you do it? If you actually made the decision to not go to school, d'you think that was the right call? Just consider this, like, an informal poll. I'm interested in hearing what you guys have got to say.

[ The video opens to an image of one Cheryl Blossom, looking particularly poised. She’s smiling at the camera--and it might be your imagination, but the grin seems as though it’s off, as though the wattage is a bit too bright to be genuine. Her lipstick is bright, too, an intense red that matches what you can see of the outfit that she’s wearing.

Oh, yeah, and there’s someone in the background, too. The camera seems to be angled to minimize them as much as possible, though. ]


Hello, superpowered citizenry from many worlds over. You may not know me, but I’m sure there will be whisperings regarding my arrival soon enough. I’m Cheryl Blossom.

[ She says this as though it explains everything.]

I’ll spare you the details of my powers and such, but rest assured, I’m here to make Heropa a much more interesting place. Starting with a little housewarming party--I’ll go ahead and write the address below, party people.

[ In the background an exasperated 'Cheryl' is voiced and a few moments later the camera is angled differently to show another person and not just one. Unlike Cheryl, Veronica's smile is a little warmer and less edged but she looks just as poised and put together. ]

Hello everyone, I'm Veronica Lodge and I have a few questions here. First, where are the places to see and been seen around here? The latter I hope to avoid as much as possible. Second, anyone have tips on winning the fight against humidity for your hair? This is a nightmare.

Lastly, the housewarming party is something we will be working on and more details will be soon. But I can say it will be really sweet.

If anyone needs a little pep in their life, let me know because a little bling can go a long way. Or if anyone needs any makeovers, we will be your girls. Isn't that right, Cheryl?


[ Cheryl rolls her eyes.]

It’s only my job, Veronica. I’m not an amateur.

[The first view is of a very big and green Hulk squinting at the camera.]

Whoever designed these things needs to be fired. I can barely press anything like this.

[He pulls the communicator away from him and he visibly shrinks down to the form of a skinny Asian teenager.]

Do you know how much less awesome it is when you have to dehulk just to pick up the phone? How am I supposed to show the bad guys that they don't deserve my full attention if I can't call someone while punching them! They're clearly not thinking about their target demographic here.

And I know what some of you are thinking, 'why don't you do it yourself?'. To which I say do I really have to do everything round here? I had a pretty sweet gig back on my Earth being the most popular Hulk ever and now I gotta start from scratch on top of this crappy phone.

Speaking of which, why am I a counsellor on anger management? Bruce is the expert on that. I don't even know any zen techniques!
