Where: New York.
Interactions: Open
Warnings: TBA.

"Good evening Sir, you summoned the jet?" The voice from inside the black and silver bat jet was the all too familiar English accented voice of Jarvis. "You were scheduled to arrive home approximately two hours ago. According to my sensors at the mansion, your soup is cold."

Climbing into the jet, a fully armored Tony Wayne sat in the pilot seat, looking at the empty house that was actually home to Arkham Tower. "I had to see Doctor Strangefate." said a clean shaven Iron Bat. He was sure that if anyone knew about the world's current condition, the Mage Supreme would. "I'm not going back to the mansion Jarvis. There has to be something here in New York. Too many things triangulate here. Make arrangements for me to stay here, schedule visits for Wayne Resilient that don't interfere with my investigation." Switching the controls of the jet from A.I. to Manual, he took off.

"Very good Sir. Notifications have been left at the main offices of Wayne Resilient of New York as well as your personal accommodations therein. Is there anything else?"

There was a long pause as the jet flew over the clouds in the night sky. Finally the white light in the eyes of the back armored mask narrowed slightly. "No. I think I can find a gorgeous blonde on my own."

The smallest of smiles was visible on Tony's lips.


Morning had come abruptly as the sunlight filtered through the large windows of a luxurious suite at the top of Wayne Resilient. Tightly clenching his eyes for a moment before opening them, Tony's darted back and forth. From the bed he was in he could see a trail of female clothing on the pristine white carpet leading up to the foot of the bed. Under the sheets sleeping next to him was a blonde woman, likely a model as was his preference, and her name eluded him entirely. With silent finesse, Tony slid out of the bed and headed out of the room into an open living area with couches, foot rests, multiple televisions on the wall along with a bar. "Shower." he said as he walked past the room and through another door that led to an expansive bathroom. Being already naked, he walked into the water that had been running with hot water since the moment the word had left his lips.

"What did you do with the fake me?"

Jarvis' voice, crisp as ever answered "The Life Model Decoy that has been performing your 'minor' duties at Wayne Resilient has been decommissioned and put in stasis last night Sir. It will be ready to continue activity at your request and has every media channel in full belief that Anthony Wayne and the Iron Bat are two very separate people."

Listening to the usual response, Tony had washed himself and begun drying off. "Good. Set my official arrival at the company for noon. Oh, and clean" he motioned in the direction of the bedroom "all of that up." he said.

Minutes later he walked out of the bathroom, clothes materializing on him. A dark red silk shirt covered by a black sports coat paired with black slacks and crimson shoes. When the elevator doors opened he walked out giving a smile and smart nod at a woman who had just passed it. She froze in disbelief as he continued on. A young man on a cell phone dropped his briefcase upon seeing the owner of the company suddenly appearing at Wayne Resilient in New York.

"Don't worry, you didn't get the memo because there wasn't one." Tony said still smiling and pointing both fingers at him. He swiftly walked past the young intern at the desk nearby the main entrance/exit to the building. "Don't get up, I'll let myself out." chimed Tony as the doors opened smoothly and automatically. Fishing sunglasses out of the pocket of his sports coat, he snapped them on and began simply walking into the streets of New York keeping an eye out for breakfast options. After having been out most of the night and missing dinner, Tony definitely needed some food. For thought of course. Who could conduct a competent investigation on an empty stomach?

Like the Batsignal in the skies of Gotham, Tony's signal suddenly lit up the screen on the computer terminal Pepper had been using to scan for him. He was in New York again, but no where near the location of Strangefates Mansion. As soon as the signal was there though, every thought disappeared from Pepper's mind and she swung around in her chair without even managing to notify Angie.

"Door! Anthony Wayne's location!" The woman called out. She'd pretty much gotten it down now and in an instant the golden glowing rectangle appeared and she was through it, ginger hair swishing with each stroke of her arms against the wheels of her chair. She appeared on the other side of the door right on the sidewalk of New York City, a couple of people having to hurriedly swerve their feet in order to avoid her. That was fine however as she was more intent on giving her esteemed employer the most blood chilling glare she'd ever given him in their long history together.

The flurry of words that was about to erupt from the woman's mouth was plain to see in her severe expression, imposing even while bound to a wheelchair.

"I'll tell you all about how I got here just as soon as you're finished telling me how you got away from Strangefate. After you know kidnapped by his sunshine assistant leaving Cindy and I to find our own way out of the Magic Mansion from Hell?" Pepper managed to restrain herself from scowling anymore but the days spent in exhausting stress and worry were definitely still present on her face and in her body. She did take a quick deep exhale however.

And then as if she wanted to spite him she muttered "I like IHOP better." as she turned her chair so that she could roll along side him. "Resilient Gotham is fine by the way. Although your new assistant is getting more attention from the media than the company is right now. And you've got a corporate lunch coming up. I had to reschedule like 5 times now because you were missing but amazingly Starrware's CEO is still interested in a partnership. I already sent you the portfolio." The Ginger haired woman chose her words carefully so that she could avoid awkward questions about Karen Starr. Besides; she didn't need to. Let him find out about the woman on his own.

His account of the event wasn't anything like what had actually happened. Which could only mean that Strangefate had tampered with his head somehow. Yet another reason to dislike magic. But that had to wait a moment as she turned to the waiter to order, only to find him staring at her blankly. All that intellect and she still managed to stumble over whatever Tony was so excited about at just that moment.

"Why aren't you responding Tony why isn't he responding?" She changed her question quickly as she realized mid-sentance that there was little chance the waiter would understand her if he hadn't heard her order just a minute earlier. While waiting for him to go into his undoubtedly enthusiastic explanation the Woman pulled out her phone and swiped through the files until she had the now infamous world broadcast of Caitlin's announcement queued up.

Of course he would invent the countermeasure to bass music. Who else could do that? Still Pepper couldn't help but feel awkward when the waiter returned and she had to point to what she wanted on the menu and then wait for him to nod and leave again. Idle thoughts passed across her mind about whether the waiter was getting annoyed or not. It seemed like it could come off as extremely arrogant. Pointing and such and refusing to address him verbally.

Of course almost as soon as he was finished talking he was attempting to break into her phone. "Oh would you stop? I was going to show it to you anyway." She told him with a sigh. "You know this is why I have a constant algorithm shift activated. Look; I already have it queued up so just watch okay?" Tony was ahead of Pepper in a lot of ways. But she could always compete with him where computer programming was concerned. After all there was a reason Oracle was a legend in the hacker community.

But for the time being; that had to take a back seat to the video that was playing. The message Caitlin had sent to the world about how she and the "Good Doctor" were going to "help" them all.

"I thought you would say that" Pepper replied while trying not to sound too proud of herself. She'd sent the file practically before he'd finished telling her to and now was sending another file directly to his phone.

"There is your meeting. Time and place. And also-" The woman drew out the word, the way she always did when she was in the middle of sending something she thought was important "The second annual charity Carnival and Date Auction is coming up. It's going to be in Gotham this year."
