Ben was not present, so Machinesmith was very ably played by visiting substitute Dustin.
Doctor Doom takes the PCs to a crater in Westchester County, beneath which is hidden the former headquarters of the X-Men. Doom turns this facility over to the PCs to use as a new base. Also present at the base are old ally Psylocke and Doom’s first team, Delta Force One: Juggernaut, Pyro, and Ghost. While Doom works with Ultron’s head to hack the Kree omni-wave internet, Delta Force One trains the PCs in the Danger Room (everyone receives the Teamwork skill for free) and the Ghost gives them some communication devices.
After the training period is over, Doom summons Delta Force Two (the PCs). He has discovered that former First Lady Hillary Clinton is still alive, in Kree custody as an informant under the code name Nasty Woman. The Kree are very excited about the intelligence she has been giving them, so Doom wants the PCs to take her away from them. Adding insult ot injury, she’s being held in Doom’s former castle, Doomstadt, in Latveria. Also in custody is the former First Daughter, Chelsea.
The PCs take the X-Men Blackbird stealth jet to Latveria and infiltrate Doomstadt through the sewers. They face some opposition from Chitauri and Kree artillery. It also turns out this facility is being run by their old nemesis, Colonel Yon-Rogg. He gets flung off a bridge and over a cliff to an uncertain fate. The PCs ultimately rescue Chelsea and Hillary, although she turns into some kind of snake-woman during the battle.
For this session, everyone receives 6 XP: 1 for interacting effectively with Delta Force One, 2 for retrieving the Nasty Woman for Dr. Doom, 1 for also rescuing Chelsea, 1 for defeating Colonel Yon-Rogg a second time, 1 for flinging him off the bridge to a dramatically uncertain fate.
