Nick nods his head. "I'm starving. Let's go someplace with steak."
The girl stares at GC in shock. "M- my superhero name? Uhh, I forgot to come up with one, can I get back to you on that?" Please don't prod at this, she thinks. Are you directing that thought at me? Because I don't have contact with him and you know it.
"Uh, but as for food," she blurts out in a transparent attempt to divert attention, "I'm okay with steak as well."

The detective strokes his chin.
Detective GC: I was thinking of pasta myself right now. Assuming that we're all in the mood for something different, maybe we can compromise and have one of us retrieve the food for us?

"Pasta's okay too. I'm just kinda vaguely hungry, really."
After this food conversation, the villain introductions will begin.
The detective takes note of the girl's response. As he waits for the others to respond he takes out a remote, making a brief glance at the large widescreen TV that's mounted on the wall opposite him.
Det. GC: Anyways after or during lunch one of us is going to go to the basement and fix the power, I intend on using the news channels to find anything of interest to us heroes.
"Sounds good, you guys. Hey, uh, mister detective, do you have powers of your own? I don't know if you showed them off already or not."
The girl pulls out her phone. "I mean, the internet has news too." She glances at Nick when he suggests GC demonstrate his powers. "Or, I suppose we should all demonstrate our powers at some point."
Discord server has been made, but I'm holding off on putting a link here until we get to the villain team
The detective takes out a breathing device of some sort and puts it on, causing the tubes on it to glow neon blue.
Det. GC: I don't have any powers, I have technology to back me up. I use this breathing device to restrict my physical strength and the power of my weapons for training purposes. Though if I have to it can be reversed so that it enhances the power instead.
"Ah, a Power Limiter. ... Wait, how does a breathing device do that? Does it keep you deprived of oxygen?" That could be interpreted as prying. I'll let GC do the interpreting, thanks.
ďOh, thatís cool. My power seems kinda lame compared to the flashiness of your power.Ē
Det. GC: Not oxygen. It actually supplies me with strength-nullifying particles when I breathe it, and in this mode the power generator the breathing device is attached to decreases the power of the weapons via wireless connection. It only affects my weapons so no need to worry about yours. And I said that I'm able to reverse the effects, so...
The tubes suddenly change to a neon red for a few moments before switching back to blue.
Yep, I go red at max power. I only use max power if I have to, no need to go overkill.
"Strength-nullifying particles... So you're basically on sedatives all the time." You're really prodding at this. GC didn't prod at your lack of name. GC seems perfectly happy to explain things! And I'm working on the name, don't rush me!
ďSteak? Why not bacon?Ē
As a heads up, going to do the transition to the villain team soon
The detective checks his phone and sighs.
Det. GC: Darn, seems like reception in on the fritz. Guess the earthquake did a number on that too. Looks like we're going to have to order our food in person. As I can recall, there's a Italian food place down the block that's right next to a sub place, and a steakhouse is right across the street from that.
He turns to Baconstein.
No offense but I feel like if I tried your bacon I may have to get my stomach pumped or something.

ďNo offense, Baconstein, but Iím looking for the blood of the animal, and baconís a bit too non-bloodified for my taste.Ē
"I'd be okay with like, regular bacon that's just food and doesn't explode or anything. Is that a thing you are able to create?"
One of the shadows caused by the lack of electricity and light from the windows starts getting darker before rising from the ground in a humanoid male figure. When fully formed the shadow returns to normal, revealing a slightly overweight roughly 25 year old man."This the superhero group thing? I would have been here sooner but I kept popping out on the wrong floor, guess I still need to work on the whole 'travel by shadow' thing."
"You're in the right place, yes," said the magical girl. "... I wonder if we're going to arrange some kind of practice sessions." I've been practicing on my own, of course, but practicing alongside my future teammates will surely be necessary too.
The detective turns his attention to the new shadowy arrival.
Det. GC: You're just in time. We were about to go out to get lunch. As for practice sessions, maybe after lunch. Best not to use your abilities on an empty stomach, right?
"Maybe... That seems like the sort of thing that could be tested empirically, actually." She ponders this for a moment. "Eh. I'll do that some other time."
To specify on my above-mentioned heads up, the lunch break will be used to cut away to the villain introductions.
Det. GC: So, shall we start going then?
Shade: "Sounds good to me. You guys can call me Shade by the way, at least until I come up with a name I like better."
"Yes, let's get going," the girl said. And I'll use the distraction to scroll through Behind the Name for a bit. Wait, you came here without picking a personal name?! Are you high!?

"I'm Nick like I said, but you can call me the Lyme Disease Linebacker! Because of my power."
"... I feel like I'm gonna regret asking, but what *is* your power, anyway?"
