Every year, it seems the masked villains and vigilantes are getting younger. At least that is what our esteemed colleagues here at Cape and Cowl say. Here’s a little proof that the next generation may need some superhero justice as much as the last one.
Flying Teen Crashes Frat Party
A young woman with an unlicensed jet pack crashed through the roof of a frat house near the University of Cobalt City. Claiming that she was there to stop the fraternity from unleashing a mind-controlling substance on the university’s professors, she eluded pursuit by escaping into the skies. The Cobalt City Police Department has asked certain flying citizens to help in the apprehension of this individual and renewed their request to the City Council for the purchase of jet packs for the department. Officers on the scene also took into custody several large glass jars filled with purple smoke.
Shoplifting Blamed On Spooks
Officers located and arrested three juvenile suspects just hours after they stole an Ouija board from a downtown magic store. The owner of the store said that the item was an antique display piece that had been in the shop for several decades. The suspects claimed that they were instructed to take the board after hearing ghostly voices issue from it. All three were released into the custody of their parents. The Ouija board was returned to its owner, who promised to secure it in a more sound-proofed display case.
Dragon Disrupts Library
Ignoring the “no pets” rule at the Cobalt City Central Library, a minor apparently smuggled a small dragon into the stacks. Officers responding to the report of a flame-belching reptile cleared the building and waited for Animal Control. At the same time, a young woman dressed in medieval armor and riding a white horse entered the Library through the main doors. She chased the dragon into the street and the pair were lost in traffic. The owner of the dragon is wanted for questioning about bringing a dangerous exotic species into the city.
