Truth. Justice. Minesweeper.

So here's a summarized version of the list I turned over to Greyghost:

- Greyghost

- Torque a.k.a. Bob

- Perseid a.k.a. Cassie

- One-Eyed Jack

- Moonshooter. He's been fighting crime in this city for over a decade now and nobody knows a damn thing about him. The criminals and supervillains he's left tied up in the police station parking lot have described him as being a tall well-built guy wearing a black-and-white costume with a moon-and-dice motif, but that's about it. No pictures. Greyghost has never met him, neither has Bob. He's a mystery, is what he is

- Icecap. The kid's been all over the papers recently

- Prowl. I wasn't sure I should put her on here because she might also be a supervillain; there's a story about her beating up some cop, and some rumors about vandalizing billboards and defacing ads. She does fight crime, though; works with women's shelters and stuff. The only super-power I could find for her is the ability to turn into a cat, which seems only moderately useful, so she must have something else on the ball

- Neontetra. This is the glowing-outline guy. There still isn't a lot known about him, but at least now the press has pinned him with a name. Since his first case, he's nailed a chemical polluter and swamped a cigarette boat full of marijuana. Pattern: spends most of his time in the water

- Ms. Moxie. Now on maternity leave

- Surefire. Don't know where the hell he's gone

- Shadow-Falcon. Okay, here's what I've got for this guy. He can fly, he seems to be decently strong, and he can project some kind of darkness ray. Fine. However, all he's done is take out some street punks in the Doverdale suburb. I suspect he's a high-school student who isn't ready for the big time

- Fantastic Man. Student at ECU, I am forced to conclude, because what he mostly does is show up for parties there. When he can tear himself away from that, though, he's also nabbed his share of muggers, rapists, car thieves and vandals who were operating on campus. And, in his big moment, he blew up a really nasty ring of Satanists, not on campus, who were doing all kinds of unpleasant crap. He seems to have some kind of metal power-suit thing going on

- Lady Starwind. Doesn't seem to have any powers beyond glowing. Doesn't do much crimefighting, but has shown up to help out at a few disasters and large emergencies

- Wire-Paladin. This guy made a big splash a couple of years ago when he brought down a gang of supervillains called the Quintet, but nobody's heard from him since. Still, we have a couple of informants who swear he's still around and still active, so he goes on the list. He's got some kind of electrical-techno powers that I don't understand

- Inkling. Fought low-level street crime intermittently for a few years, but no sign of him this year. Not sure about his powers

- Some chick in a red costume. Showed up while Bob was duking it out with Maligno five months ago and helped Bob win the fight by shooting a stream of red bubbles in Maligno's face at a key moment. Nobody's seen her before or since; nobody knows nothing about her

And that's it. That's who's protecting Empire City. God knows what Greyghost is gonna do with this list; cry over it, maybe. There's not a lot of help for him here.
