The team announced two new members to the roster: Face and Figment. Both possess, … unique qualities, and were well received. Many appearances were made around town and Face gathered a following pretty fast. Although Figment seemed a bit unbalanced, her powers were welcome and some speculated she was more than she seemed.
Alfonso Mezzeran, the CEO of DynaCorp arrived fro a visit in one the the company’s new hi-tech helicopters. He was enthusiastic and to meet the team and very proud of their accomplishments. During the conversation, he let the team know that although the company had the idea for the tests, Dinah was the one to suggest them becoming a team. With help from Dinah, the meet and greet was a success and Alfonso went off to tour the rest of the facility, promising a fine feast for everyone later.
After the meeting, the team hung around the facility except for Shui who went off to distract Scott from meeting the CEO. During this time a silent alarm went off. Down below, in the menagerie, there had been an accident.
Dynamix headed down to see what they could help with. Several rodent subjects got away, the Jurrasic section was compromised, classified Sunbects X, Y, and Z has also gone missing, and other things got away. The retrieval bots that went after them were lost as well. And the chicken was AWOL. The team split up into groups to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
Figment and Trickshot tracked down a killer turkey that shot out corrosive pepper sauce. After a fight, they caught it and went to head back.
Brickhouse, Face, Shui, and Splice were not so lucky. They were brought down by their quarry, but before a deathblow could be delivered, a shadowy figure appeared and saved them. Unsure about their true intentions, the figure dragged them back and tied them up.
When they awoke, they asked to be released so they could talk things out, and they were. The figure revealed itself to be a subject of the menagerie, a collective consciousness of rats. It called Splice father. The thing informed that that Subjects X, Y, and Z were their ‘brothers and sisters’, drawing them to the conclusion that not all of the Dynamix experiments worked out well. The rat man also revealed that DynaCorp had a ‘fox in the hen house’ and all it wanted was to be left alone. They promised to let it go as long as it kept his promise.
After the rat man broke apart and scurried through the sewers, the team went to find the others. They reunited in the tunnels and headed back to the Menagerie. Upon arrival, a bloody mess was found and they learned that Trixie, an intelligent T-Rex, had gotten free and was headed to the city.
They went to chase after her and clear the way of civilians. Face tried to distract people as the rest of the team tried to corral Trixie. After much carnage and a few injuries, they managed to get the massive beast to slow down just enough for the retrieval team to inject her with many strong tranquilizers, making her pass out.
Alfonso met up with them and, thinking it was all a publicity stunt, congratulated them and asked for pictures. The team got cleaned up and joined their CEO for a fine dinner experience. All throughout the meal, they could not help but remember the rat man’s words. A fox in the hen house.
