CHAPTER START---

---The Oval Office...

"What's the situation at Capitol Hill looking like?" a man asks.

He was an older Caucasian man with a pronounced and strong jawline. His grey hair neatly kempt and short.

Sitting behind his desk he holds a phone to his ear while looking at the holographic screen being projected from the desk.

Even now as he sits and appraises the situation with a calm expression, his towering stature and imposing build -maintained via help from his Quirk-, gives him an aura of strength.

As one would expect from the Former #1 Pro Hero of California, Former #1 Pro Hero of New York State, Former Overall #1 Pro Hero of The United States Of America.

Christopher Skyline, formerly known as Captain Celebrity, now the President of The United States Of America.

"Most of congress is being captured and held as hostages sir, Legion's copies are here and swarming the place but clearly these traitors have been planning this for months, if not years," the secret service agent says through the phone.

"Yes, but so have we, stay the course, and leave Sentinel to us," President Skyline says. "And what of Star'? Has she left Paris yet?"

"No sir, Colonel Agpar's last update said there were bombings in Paris just before The Evolutionists launched their attack on you, she went to help the locals before communications were jammed."

Hearing that, President Skyline smiles, "well we expected that much, and the bunker?"

"Your family was moved to the bunker below The Whitehouse 2 minutes ago, they've already been moved to safehouse in New York since then."

"Good, now just focus on the small time Pro Heroes that revealed themselves as traitors, make me a list and raise the security on our boarders, protect the civilians instead of trying to capture them."

"Are you sure sir?"

"Their regime is about to fall apart, they're only confident because Star isn't here, so long as I don't crack and give them the nuclear launch codes, they'll lose, not that they'll ever get the chance, after all..." President Skyline looks over his shoulder toward the window. "Modern America may be a monolith, but that isn't our greatest strength, and compared to that, you're weak..."

"Are you really so sure about that?" Sentinel asks as he opens the nearby window and hovers into the office.

"I don't have to be sure of it, because you're sure of it," President Skyline says. "After all, that's why you waited until Star' was gone before launching this attack, right?"

Sentinel glares at him for a moment, but then his gaze softens as he casually walks about the office, eventually coming to a stop in the middle of the room, in front of the desk.

"One of the things we're taught is knowing when to pick our fights," Sentinel says. "Mystery Class individuals effectively hold whatever group or nation they stand in or against hostage. And ['In a hostage situation, sometimes the best course of action is inaction, because when people are in danger---"

"---Timing is everything'," President Skyline says. "Don't Quote my own words to me."

"You were my favourite Pro Hero, I can't help it."

President Skyline scoffs, "don't ever say that again, this is certainly not the legacy I want, I spent my life helping people, no matter how strong or weak they were."

"Yes, and how'd they repay you for it?" Sentinel asks. "They used entrapment and other underhanded nonsense to slander you, drag you to court over and over, sued you into near bankruptcy, and they would have gotten away with it if they were a bit more careful, and you would have just sat there and let them."

President Skyline raises a brow at that, "what does this have to do with your actions recently?"

"Everything," Sentinel says. "You were the most powerful man in this half of the world, you could do anything you wanted and nobody could stop you. But because our society has 'rules' and 'etiquette', you were bullied by weak pathetic people abusing the system you spent your life protecting. You were my hero, and I watched them throw stones made of legality that made you bleed, it really broke my heart."

"Yet their schemes got revealed, and all was well."

"You were lucky," Sentinel says. "If they were more careful your wife and the triplets never would have forgiven you, the nation would have turned against you, they would have used a pen to make god bleed, how can you stomach that crap?"

"Because like it or not, this system, while it isn't perfect, stops rampant violence caused by selfish desires like your own."

"But its not fair," Sentinel says.

"No system is perfectly fair, which is why we have to constantly remain vigilant and keep improving the ones we have."

"Nature is fair," Sentinel says. "The strong live, the weak die, you were the strongest of your era yet you let the weak bully you because the system kept you in chains."

"You'd rather I kill everyone who I disagreed with?"

"I'd rather you have the option to," Sentinel says. "When my takeover is complete, a few generations will suffer, but eventually this nation will be perfected because people will know better than to bite the hand that protects them."

"You'd be a dictator," President Skyline says. "At least until someone stronger than you comes along."

"That's part of the system, and I'm fine with it."

"Then why not brawl it out with Star and Stripe, let power decide what happens next, you fight for your system and she fights for us."

"Because I can't convince people by talking about it, I have to show them, I need to make this nation an example to the world as it's always been."

"And that can't happen if she rips you in half on my lawn," President Skyline chuckles.

"Knowing what toes you can't step on is part of my new world."

President Skyline glances down at this watch.

"Star' is a bit busy," Sentinel says. "I know you're stalling, but it'll be at least another two hours before she gets here. Her idiotic desire to protect the weak won't allow her to leave until the people there are safe, besides, you aren't the only one stalling."

The doors to the room open and in steps Mind Hacker, metal case in hand.

President Skyline, looks at the case, and sees the all of Mind Hacker is covered aside from his hands.

"Let me guess, a copy of the Nuclear Football awaiting launch codes to be activated, and he's has Tactile Telepathy, one touch and he rips them out of my head, right?"

Sentinel smiles, "it's good to see retirement hasn't dulled you too much, now, lets just get this over and done with."

President Skyline gets up, pushing his chair back slightly, then rolls his shoulders.

"You know, you never did give a reason for retiring," President Skyline says. "Tell me, what was your reason?"

"I saw how pointless the current system was, that's all," Sentinel says. "The more interesting question is, why did you? You were in your prime when you retried, it really did hurt the nation."

"I learned something that valuable, something that your so called 'new world' wants to be built upon, something you're about to learn the hard way."

President Skyline suddenly flips his heavy wooden desk toward Sentinel, blocking the man's view for a moment.

He instantly fires two energy beams from his eyes, yet as the punch a hole through the desk, the entire thing shatters as President Skyline uses his Flight to barrel through it.

'Slow,' Sentinel things as he raises a hand and slams his fist into President Skyline as the man was rocketing past him, toward Mind Hacker.

The hit sends a small shockwave through the room, knocking Mind Hacker off his feet and back against the wall.

President Skyline is sent toward the ceiling but uses his Flight to stop himself from slamming into it.

Sentinel looks up to see a piece of the wooden desk in President Skyline's hand, which the man throws at Mind Hacker.

'Shit,' Sentinel hits it with his eye beams, only to break it in half mid flight.

The wood was launched with such force that he barely diverts its path, causing it to shred the side of Mind Hacker's face, removing pieces of bone and his entire left ear, instead of punching through his skull.

Sentinel continues his blasts, moving his head to the slam into President Skyline as the man rockets down from the ceiling.

The energy visibly interacts with President Skyline's secondary Quirk, his skin tight bioelectric force field, harmlessly dissipating it across his body.

Sentinel stops the energy beam and raises his arms, taking a powerful punch to the arms that sinks him ankle deep into the reinforced concrete floor.

At the same moment he grabs onto the president and throws him back toward where the desk was, once again putting himself between the president and Mind Hacker.

Sentinel pulls himself out of the ground and hovers an inch above it, glancing back to see Mind Hacker still in shock but slowly coming to his senses. 

'Using his telepathy to dull his own senses of fear and pain, clever,' Sentinel says as Mind Hacker forces himself to stand.

He looks back at President Skyline to see the man land on the floor, breathing heavily.

"You've gotten even weaker than I thought, this is just pitiful," Sentinel says, eyes focused on President Skyline's mangled right hand.

Fingers to wrist were broken, blood dripping to the floor, bones protruding through his skin, all because of the recoil in his previous punch.

"Yeah well, that's what I learned, that's what I was talking about before, than that's what you're about to learn," President Skyline chuckles as he stumbles backward and collapses into his chair.

"Mind Hacker, it's safe to approach now," Sentinel says, which causes the president to smile.

"When its time to retire, to get out of the way, you'll know, because the kids will tell you," he says in a tired voice. 

SHAMBLES!
