Strange Lights in Canada Planned Spectacle or Alien Invasion? some
Strange lights were witnessed a few nights back in the area surrounding Force Station Steelhead. Witnesses describe the lights as occurring following a spaceship falling from the sky, officials from the station deny this claim although multiple heroes have been confirmed to be investigating the lights. Interstellar travellers are nothing new to the people of Millennium City, all will recall the Qularr invasion from a few months previously, along with the invasion of Earth by the Gadroon in the 1984 and 1987, and thatâ€™s not mentioning Champions member
Ironclad who is a former interstellar gladiator. Even more disturbing species do live among us however, the Gadroon hold a strong foothold in Canada rapidly terraforming stretches of land to suit the needs of their species, even more terrifying are the rumours that some of Americaâ€™s most popular politicians have been replaced with shapeshifting interstellar travellers in an underhanded attempt to quietly invade our planet. Such rumours do have a ways to go before being proven to be anything other than rumour and wild speculation but early interviews with heroes following
of their activities within the city have all but confirmed some of these rumours. Either way, organisations like UNTIL and PRIMUS either know little of these so called secret invasions, or according to some theorists already deeply infiltrated by these creatures and just waiting for their brethren to complete their missions. Heroes like Ironclad and other interstellar species have spoken openly of their homeworlds and their travels, telling Earth scientists and astronomers that their theories of live beyond Earth are correct. Some of these species even claim to be figures or the descendants thereof of famous
heroes and gods from ancient Earth history indicating that these travellers or their ancestors may have visited Earth before and been influential upon Earthâ€™s history. Whether these are telling the truth or not, the evidence that we are not alone in the universe stands as clear as day in our own city. Where we go from here is up to the PRIMUS forces at Force Station Steelhead, indeed whether we are heading into an interstellar war or into peaceful cooperation with a new species may depend on the actions of Force Station Steelhead and the Argent and Viper forces in the area.
