With the shocking revelation of a continued Sarpah presence on earth - and at least some level of collusion with earth’s government - the team prepares themselves for action. For many this will be their first battle against a real enemy since war time, and for the young members, this will be their first fight at all. Tension runs high and morale somewhat low as the team searches for a way forward. Fortunately, the world of KENMARK is a fantastic place. Excellent facilities, equipment, and toys to keep a despondent hero happy. With newly minted uniforms, specialized equipment, and the knowledge of alien dominance the group steels itself for action.
A news announcement further catalyzes their resolve.
After the brazen assault on an AEGIS Facility in Upstate New York the World Government has decided to coordinate all law enforcement and intelligence gathering operations under the shield of AEGIS. This will end the multinational alphabet soup of agencies, both foreign and domestic, that prevent the timely sharing of information and resources to combat the growing domestic terrorist threat posed by rouge ARES project members.
In one fell swoop AEGIS has become the controlling organization for all national law enforcement and intelligence aparati. Their reach will extend to every street corner in every city and town across the globe. They will has have unfettered access to satellite imagery and special weapons and tactics.
As the news coverage continues Marks shakes his head, “I don’t have to tell you guys that this is bad. With AEGIS getting their fingers in every pie your movements - and those like you - are going to be extremely difficult. I suspect coordinated purges will follow. Even if we go public with what you found, the public sentiment is so low the message won’t get through.” Shrugging and looking at Mr. Raith he smiles, “We’re going to need to win the PR battle as much as the ground war. GOod thing you guys got good costumes, we can build a brand from that.”
Looking at Summer and Bradley he smiles, “You two are going to be the centre of our social media department. We’re going to have to set-up blogs, leak info to conspiracy nuts, political blogs, all that kind of jazz. And while we’re doing that, the big damn heroes are going to have to do things that cause people to ask questions. Save cats from trees, expose alien presence, and basically try to change the mood. It won’t be easy we’re working against the world government, but, hell I got billions of dollars let’s spend ‘em”
Putting up a list of post war American law enforcement and intelligence agencies Marks suggests a first move, “These guys ain’t going to be happy about a take over. If we can sow some seeds of doubt we can really slow down AEGIS power creep. I got some contacts at the CIA and FBI, we’ll get them some imaging from the hack upstate but we need to back it up with a grand gesture. Taking a Sarpah alive. Let’s ID a Continuum Consulting building and try to find ourselves a lizard man.”
