Thousands are expected to gather next week in the plaza in front of City Hall in protest of the government’s policies regarding containment and management of extrahuman abilities, as well as the APD‘s treatment of the death of Suzanne Error. In attendance will be Magdalena Christensen (who was involved in last month’s protest in front of the main headquarters of the Guild of Psychics), as well as Astrophel Error.
The APD has conducted yet another raid on what is believed to be a lab for processing Mutant Growth Hormone. This makes the third full-scale bust this year, and yet sources say that MGH dealers still roam at large on Axum’s streets.
When asked to comment on this matter, Comissioner Montoya said that the efforts of the APD have, in fact, made a large difference in the reduction of MGH dealing. She went on to point out that her squads have rescued over fifty individuals who were being held against their will in the various raids.
Detective Sigrid Pryor will be receiving the Kane award for exceptional service in recognition of her involvement in the recent raids, and rumors have been circulating that she may receive a promotion some time in the near future.
Popular bassist Eric Slapton officially announced that he will be taking a break from the music industry, effective immediately. Though Slapton himself refused to comment, his manager, Mr. Satan Provenzano, said that Slapton needs “some time to himself, to relax and collect his thoughts”, and that the hiatus will be “indefinite but not permanent; Mr. Slapton has every intention of returning to music at some point in the future”.
Repairs to the 24th street bridge have been completed after the battle between Safeguard and a mysterious flying man in what appeared to be a suit of mechanical armor. The repairs were minor, and witnesses to the event are adamant that the damage would have been much greater if Safeguard had not been present to drive off the strange man, who had halted traffic and was holding a number of people hostage.
Though the altercation was brief, it has caused an overwhelming response from the citizens of Axum, who seem very pleased with the new team of super-heroes.
The Transhumanist Guild has been working with the Guild of Technology for months on making advanced cybernetic legs available to the masses, and at long last this technology has officially been made available to Axum’s hospitals. Both guilds (as well as the Axum Medical Association) assure that the limbs are entirely safe and will not require special training or knowledge to operate. Renowned surgeon James Sanders is on record as endorsing the legs as exceptionally safe and easy to use.
The Government is expected to incorporate these cybernetic legs into their subsidized funding program, which should allow individuals who would not normally be able to afford such technology access to these new artificial limbs.
A string of recent high profile electronics-related crimes have left the police baffled, and the perpetrator is still believed to be at large. Citizens are asked to report any information they may have involving these crimes to the APD as soon as possible.
The Guild of Technology are said to be investigating the matter privately.
Adrienne Walker has announced that she will soon be releasing a new book, titled “A Comprehensive History of the Guild of Psychics”. This book, which will be her seventh, charts the history of the Guild of Psychics from earliest known accounts to the present.
Ms. Walker will be discussing the book at length in her interview with Ernestine Wolff on his show, Crying Wolff (???).
Popular musician Savarez, who is notably a member of the new Safeguard, is said to be living with two men, one of whom is his enigmatic team member Mauveine. The identity of the other man is currently unknown. It is widely believed that this cohabitation is due to security issues Savarez is rumored to be having at his Short Island mansion.
