Smash Comics #2 - pt. 3

This is The Invisible Hood -- and here we have a rare example of a Hero using chloroform! I'll probably have to add this to the minor trophy list, with a note about how you need surprise on someone, or a successful grappling hold, to administer chloroform.

Yeah, I don't get how IH looks at that classified ad and just happens to know that a mobster wrote it. Some weird hunch? Information IH knows that the writer forgot to share with us...?

Up to this point, The Invisible Hood was only figuratively invisible. The captured scientist sprays his hood (really, his whole robe/gown) with an invisibility spray. It's an improved invisibility that doesn't end when you attack either.

You know you're dealing with a shy introvert when he turns invisible and raves that it's the best thing that's ever happened to him.

Well before a scientist died after creating Captain America, we see what a death sentence giving trophy items to Heroes is for scientists. I should probably include something about that in the write-up for scientists in 2nd edition...

Doing the questioning is Wings Wendall of the Military Intelligence.  He catches the sergeant in a slip-up, but that's difficult to roleplay in actual game play. If the Editor slips up while speaking in-character, was it intentional or a mistake? If the Editor does make a mistake, is he prepared to alter the story to match the mistake, or backpedal?

Note that the sergeant was bribed with only $500 to commit sabotage he knew would kill someone.
