Session Recaps
This will say which page or have a link to a session recap that is not included in this post

I will fill these in later at the moment I am tired having finished the 3rd or 4th not sure what to classify it as session, long story.

Session Recap #1 & #2
Because of various reasons I cannot tell when one session ended and the other began. Long story to that. Anyways recap

-The group of hero's were asked the question did they have cards with the E.D.A
-If not is the E.D.A aware of them and their superhero identity

Blaze has a card with the E.D.A
Torrent could get a card if he would just tell them his identity
Freya and Shade have not come out as empowered people

The groups learns about Geiger a man with radiation powers. After Blaze confronts him and nearly gets herself killed
They also learn an Atlantean may have been kidnapped
The group also has been informed someone at the prison wants too communicate with Torrent an exchange of information

The group investigates the Atlantean thing and uncovers that a man who has a split personality both has and has not kidnapped her. Neither the original personality or the Atlantean are aware he kidnapped her
His power is the ability to insert himself into your memories
The group eventually saves the day after dealing with some henchmen and the guy went off with the girl too look for magical cures

Blaze fought Geigar and almost got killed because radiation

The group encountered the Red Rider in prison and interviewed him for information. He wanted his motorbike found because the cops had been unable to find it.
A friend of Torrents who is a speedster named Velocity knew were it was and the group was able to retrieve the bike
Red Rider informed the group a prison break would happen within the next weeks time, but another one was also happening that day. At which point he made his escape.
The group fought with a villain named Thunderstorm well : Torrent confronted the Red Rider. Red fought Torrent for a bit before saying he couldn't wait any longer and used his sword on Torrent knocking him out.

The group arrived at the hospital after the Red Rider and Thunderstorm fight(The only thing I know for certain to be part of the second session), and started to rest and recover from being their radiation burns, lighting burns, and sword wounds
