The communicator buzzed on the console as Apollo sat typing on The Hero Alliance mainframe. With a grunt he answered, "Apollo here?" his expression went from annoyance to anger, he slammed the communicator onto the console, causing a few sparks and a fair sized imprint in the aluminum work surface. "What's your problem?" spoke the attractive heroine, she entered from the training room with towel round her neck. A little embarrassed Apollo relaxed his fists, "Another villain disappeared, that makes 4 so far." She smiled and relaxed on the over-stuffed couch, "Isn't that a good thing? One less torn in our side." 
Apollo turned to her still very annoyed, but now at her, "No, Sakura! It's not a good thing! They didn't get defeated, they didn't retire, they just vanished. Not a trace left from there lairs, all there minions and henchmen disbanded. It doesn't make sense." Sakura just giggled at Apollo's lack of composure, "So they quit, and why would they stay on the grid? So you can waltz up to there vacation lair and arrest them? We have squashed every villain that comes our way, sounds to me they got smart and threw in the towel on being a villain. I don't blame them, personally I'm a bit bored myself." She got up and casually walked toward the elevators, "When your finished acting like a child, I'll be with the others." Apollo watched her leave, what she said made sense, but why did he have this ominous feeling? Something was not right, and he won't stop till he finds out what's going on.

Apollo sat back down and pulled up the missing Villain's bios;

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"That attack was a few weeks ago, wait." Apollo typed furiously as he accessed the police report, Cork Screw stole 5 Explorers fresh off the line, and the cars haven't been registered or have been GPS tagged yet. Which means all of the missing Villains could be working together, Apollo was taken aback by his theory, a speedster, strong man, combat specialist, and a genius nut-job. A fairly balanced team working together could wreak havoc on the planet. You'll need a few more to counter The Hero Alliance of course, but still even with just four they can be formidable, each using their strengths to off-set the others weaknesses. Apollo grabbed a new communicator, he has to consult the others.
