In Memory of Tim Battershell 1955 - 2016 *Knight Sentinel in the Guardians of Light* MARVEL HEROES: A NEW BREED The story so far Inevitably, the Second Latverian Cataclysm came and went, leaving that country and its annexed neighbors in what is now known as the Latverian Restricted Zone. As a consequence of that epic battle, many of the legendary heroes are still missing in action. Even S.H.I.E.L.D has been rendered largely inoperative and reduced to an auxiliary role globally, due primarily to the Shadow King, who had secretly taken over control of Jocasta, S.H.I.E.L.D’s global operational A.I. in his role as a well placed pawn of Doctor Doom. Thanks to a tip from the metahuman known as The Executioner, the uncanny Sage was able to coordinate a two pronged assault against the shadowy infiltrator, both in the astral plane and the material. That conflict resulted in the destruction of the S.H.I.E.L.D Global Mainframe and the crippling of both A.I.M and H.Y.D.R.A. operations. In the aftermath, Wakanda decided to share its Anti-Ultron Firewall with the world, thanks to a key exchange of intel. Though still comatose,Charles Xavier has been freed from his mental prison and his body recovered from the depths of Triskelion itself. With Jocasta gone and its operations also crippled, S.H.I.E.L.D’s global position and influence are greatly reduced. With no one to manage or enforce the Superhuman Registration Act and the database destroyed, compulsory registration is suspended in both hemispheres. Presently, both Stark Industries and The Kingdom of Wakanda are supplying technological aid worldwide in the wake of the Second Latverian Cataclysm. One and a half years later… A kind of peace has returned to the world as people, cities and governments sue for normalcy. Many varied tales are told and many more sightings are reported, but such is the way with heroes. Yet, even in times of relative peace, there is still a need for heroes. Always a chance for fate to herald a new breed. This is their story. Thank you for your interest in Marvel Heroes: A New Breed.
