Under orders from Doctor Doom, the PCs and Psylocke went to New Jersey in a stolen maroon 1992 Plymouth Voyager minivan. Their mission: contact Scott Lang (a.k.a. Ant-Man) to learn the location of the hidden laboratory of Henry Pym (a.k.a, the former Ant-Man, Yellowjacket, Giant-Man, etc.). Lang was initially reluctant to help, thanks to his past experiences working with Psylocke.
Lorelei was on the verge of eliciting Lang’s cooperation when the negotiations were interrupted by the arrival of Korath the Pursuer and a squad of Chitauri, with Lang’s daughter Cassie as a hostage. The PCs managed to defeat Korath and the Chitauri without harm to Cassie, which made Lang very willing to help with their mission. Before proceeding, Venom tried to rip Korath’s throat out, but was stopped by Lorelei (with a cinder block). He settled for dismembering the Chitauri instead.
The PCs, Psylocke, and Ant-Man took the stolen minivan back into New York City, with Korath tied up in the back. Ant-Man directed them to Dr. Pym’s upper west side townhouse, specifically to the small garden in back. There, he used some large canisters of Pym Particles to shrink the PCs and Psylocke down to a size where they could find and enter the hidden lab.
While Ant-Man drove off in the minivan (with the forgotten Korath still inside), the PCs fought off some “giant” ants and a “giant” spider. Inside the lab, they retrieved the deactivated shell of the evil robot Ultron. With their mission completed, the PCs waited to return to normal size, then contacted Dr. Doom. Doom arrived in his invisible saucer ship, took possession of Ultron, and dropped the Delta Force back at the abandoned warehouse in Hoboken.
For this session, you each receive 8 XP: 1 for securing Ant-Man’s cooperation without coercion, 2 for preventing any harm to Cassie, 2 for defeating Korath, -1 for forgetting him in the minivan, 2 for the two additional combats, and 2 for retrieving Ultron.
You also get one more combat effectiveness level, raising your maximum to 11.
Venom earns 2 heroic action points for role-playing one of his psychological complications.
