Chapter One: Origins (Part One)
|In recent days, a seemingly random group of individuals has emerged with what can only be described as "special" abilities. While some of these individuals will use their powers for good, others will follow a much darker path that leads to evil. Every story has a beginning. Volume One of their epic tale begins here...|
A man is on his cell phone walking down a city street talking with his male business partner. He tells his partner he wants out of their insider trading arrangement, which his partner claims could soon net them 150% on their investment. His partner, who is sitting in a cubicle office, asks for him to wait till after the conference like they planned, but he insists on ending things, saying he has counselors breathing down his neck, an upcoming board meeting, and suppliers he can't reach. Just then, he enters a building and the view pans up to note this segment is about Reid Krager of San Diego, California.
Reid enters an office, and walks past a lady receptionist/secretary. He is still on the phone with Tommy and tells him that he can't take it anymore. He doesn't care about the money, just about not getting caught. Tommy says he will talk to River to see what they can do, but that they can't pull out now or they would get caught for sure. Reid comments that he is out of stress pills, and then the receptionist asks for his attention. Reid tells Nancy to wait just a second, and Tommy asks Reid to meet in person to discuss it. Reid replies that he has to get off the phone now, and Tommy suggests for Reid ask her out. Reid says he has to go, that it was nice talking with him, and closes his cell turning it off. Nancy gives Reid a large stack of papers to be signed by the end of the day and tells him that McCallister wants to see him in his office. Reid tries to ask Nancy out but is interrupted mid-question when Nancy's desk phone rings and she takes the call, answering as Yamagato Industries. Reid passes around the corner and hears his heart beat loudly, sees flashes of lights and gets slightly disoriented. A man walks by and he sees white light coming from his chest. A male colleague, Lenny, walks in with no light beaming from his chest, and asks Reid to discuss a client with whom they have a problem. As they walk along, Reid stumbles, the heart pounding noise continues, and he sees more people with white lights in their chests. He eventually collapses and passes out just after a lady assistant asks him to sign some papers for her.
At Holmberg Automotive, the view zooms to note this segment is about Dane Barret of Los Angeles, California. Two men are working as mechanics on a car. Looking at the oil stick, they both conclude there's no oil in the car they are working on. Then their boss calls Dane into the head office. Dane takes off his gloves and thrusts them to his partners chest, telling him to make himself useful. His coworker clutches the gloves in pain and Dane enters the auto shop's office.
In the office, Dane's boss tells Dane that he has to let him go. Dane glances at the trophy on his bosses desk, which reads "Hollywood Best Boss". Dane's boss says his last paycheck will be ready for pickup at the end of the week, but Dane asks for his boss to mail it to him instead. Upon leaving the office, Dane drops his mechanic's rag such that it covers his boss's trophy. Dane steps back into the mechanic's area and tells his now ex-coworker he was fired, and that his wife left him taking the kids. Dane tells his ex-coworker, Tony, not to worry about it, that he just needs to get a drink. Just then, the boss calls Tony into the office and he leaves. Dane reaches down for a metal thermos and a heavy hammer falls off a nearby car and hits him on the back of the neck where it meets the back. Dane doesn't seem bothered and tells another male mechanic he is alright when he asks, though he notices some marks on the thermos. Dane picks up the thermos and it has scorch-like marks matching the imprint of his hand.
Reid exits a medical building and calls Tommy on his cell phone, who is still in his cubicle office. He tells Tommy he didn't have a heart attack and that he just has too much stress. Reid asks Tommy if he talked to his guys yet, and Tommy asks if he is serious. When Reid tries to restate his thoughts to Tommy, Reid cuts off upon seeing something. Reid pans around and can see white lights emanating from everyone's chests. He also notices a black-haired lady up on the hill across the street who is watching him, so he tells Tommy he has to call him back and closes off his cell phone. The lady notices Reid staring at her and walks away.
In a home garage, Dane is by himself and stares at the metal thermos with hand-imprint scorch marks, which contain rust. He takes a piece of 2x4 wood and sets it on the top of his working desk. Then he takes a bunch of bolts labeled for 10 pin housing and closes his fist around them. Dane's fist shines with light and the bolts collapse into a pile of rust on the floor. Next, Dane grabs a handful of nails with his fingers and places them first into the piece of wood such that only the tip of each nail is in the wood. Dane then pounds them all the way into the wood using his closed fist.
