My first official Microplot on CoMUX is simply titled, 'The Smooth'. This plot focuses around a narcotic which, while affecting every user, has a particularly dangerous impact upon X-Gene bearing mutants.

It's worth noting that the entire plot is a spin-off that finds its source in one line, of one pose, made by Daredevil during his 'The Axe' plot.

I'll be posting plot summaries on the blog here, for those who wish to reference it, and also, as a bit of nostalgia for myself.

The Introduction

  • July 14, 2014: The Axe, Part 5 - Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson visit Lara Croft with updates on the Rhys Bale case, during which 'the smooth' is first mentioned in-game.
  • July 27, 2014: The Night Spidey Almost Lost His Butt - During the pose-in for this scene, Shift alludes to launching his first investigation into 'the smooth'.
  • August 4, 2014: Trustworthy Lawyers Are a Commodity - Sam Kathman is concerned for his client. As it turns out, his concerns weren't that far off base.
  • August 5, 2014: Drive-By at Eastham Square - A friendly neighborhood street party is interrupted by drive by shooters. Fortunately, a handful of brave individuals are there to stop the bad guys and minimize the damage.
  • August 8, 2014: Rivalry - The Brighton Beach Cartel is about to have a rude awakening. Two law enforcement officers just happen to be there to witness it.

Plans Unfold

  • August 10, 2014: Perfect Gentlemen - Kwabena's ongoing quest into a new street drug, 'The Smooth', has him taking care of a mutant who's become severely addicted to the stuff. Neither of them expect to encounter one of the region's most notorious hitmen.
  • August 11, 2014: Drug Deal of Sorts - Shift tracks down (with a bit of help) an old acquaintance (of sorts), and asks Bruce Banner for help learning more about The Smooth.
  • August 12, 2014: Hostage Situation - A mutant suffering fierce withdrawal from The Smooth takes some hostages in M-Town. It ends poorly.
  • August 16, 2014: Inferno - Richard Dackleman runs the majority of his trafficking operation out of the Bronx. Shift and Estacado intend to burn it to the ground, but some troublesome cops interject.
  • August 19, 2014: Concoction - Bruce Banner delivers some findings based on his analysis of a 'smooth' sample. They also encounter Corvinus, who offers to join Kwabena's mission.
