Then Iron Butterfly started in with yet another Q-card speach, "Okay recruits. I am glad you managed to stick it out since it tells us you have potential. Your training will not always be like this, but you will struggle till you get into shape so eat right, sleep right and make sure you stretch to reduce your muscle cramps. As you get stronger this training will get easier so stay positive and endure it. Once we see some hope for you we will be taking you out on small missions suited for your powers. Once you are able to, head home and rest up since we will be training tomorrow again."

Iron Butterfly: Oh Blue Tooth. I need you to work on the crime computers. They need an upgrade since they have been neglected for a while.

Blue Tooth was an unusual guy who wore a baby blue suit and yellow top hat. He had a bald head except for a crescent moon on the left side of his head. It got a lot of unusual looks from other who figured it was some kind of fashion statement. He had a bit of a raspy voice and a charming smile. So even through he was all sweaty and worn out, he still kept his composure as he spoke. According to what they overheard during the interviews, Blue Tooth was gifted in fix and altering technology. Granted it didn't make him a good fighter, but was going to be working from the base anyway. The only reason he was training was to help him in case the base was attacked.

Blue Tooth: Yes ma'am.

Blue Tooth then left to work on the crime computers with Iron Butterfly in a different room while Jack Frost flipped on a tv and grabbed some cold beer to relax since he was off the clock now.

Krueger shook his head and returned his attention to Chameleon, who looked even more worse for wear. The man was wandering aimlessly around the training grounds for gods sake.

"Tell you what, buddy. Why don't you let me give you a ride. I don't work until eight tomorrow. We can ride out to Mos Eisley and get shit-faced until you CAN forget what happened," Krueger said. "I think Carroll's working tonight. She'll certainly take your mind off things!"

Chameleon was still shaking with his stomach in knots as he could still remember the look on the face of the crime boss as he was tossed from the window. He had a feeling it was going to haunt him for a while. So when Prof. Mind-Blast offered to take him home he nodded yes since he was not ready to leave yet. It didn't click in that he was going to be taken to a bar since he was still shaky. Right now he didn't want to be all alone and he didn't want stay at the hero base warehouse/gym. He was beginning to wander if he made the right choice coming to be a hero.

Chameleon: Yeah sure.

Then they made it to the vehicle and as the Prof. drove, Chameleon looked out the window as he contemplated his future as a hero or going back to being a nobody.
