The city of Megalopolis. No longer just known as the home of the Freedom Four, it has become a hub of galactic information as one of the Freedom Four's newest allies, Tempest has gained much popularity from his assistance of the Freedom Four and their fight against Grand Warlord Voss. He, along with Legacy, have for weeks been talking with world leaders, scientists, and the media about their newly formed friendship and explaining what mysteries exist beyond Earth.

All this attention has the world focusing intently on Megalopolis and in the shadows, a new group seeks to make itself known. While relaxing after their latest interview, the sun begins to darken above.

"There isn't supposed to be an eclipse for quite a few years," uttered Tempest. "What could be..." He paused as a figure emerged from the shadow. "Legacy look!"

A young woman and three others land in front of Legacy and Tempest as the media turn their gaze toward the mysterious leader.

"Citizens of Megalopolis! Quiver in fear as I Citizen Dawn stand before you! You normals are weak and do not hold the power you think you wield." Pointing at Legacy and Tempest, she continues. "Behold! If these 'heroes' did not defend you, you would be but sheep for the slaughter! For what reason they pretend to defend you, the charade should stop! Join us Freedom Four and fellow superhumans. Let us show these people that they are no match for us and rule them with an iron fist of our justice!"

"Never," replied Legacy. "These people deserve peace and if you choose to upset that peace and harm them, we will be there to stop you!"

"You are but two, we will easily defeat you!"

"Not so fast," exclaims Wraith from the shadows. "Looks like you missed one."

"Glad to see you Wraith."

"You too Legacy, but we are still outnumbered."

"You are not alone," shouts a convicting voice. From the air with wings spread, what appears to be an angel descends from the heavens. "If you wish to promote your evil in the world, you will face the righteous fury of Fanatic!"

Dawn launches her assault by striking Legacy. Citizen Tears emits a wave of energy that is amplified by the presence of Citizen Blood. As the heroes are pushed back, Citizen Blood lands a hit on Fanatic while Citizen Assault hits all of the heroes with quick strikes. Feeling a chilly wind, Dawn is exhausted from hiding her source of power and prepares to call for more help as she ascends above the battle.

"Do not give up! We can win this," Legacy says as he stands with an inspiring presence that lifts the spirits of his allies. He galvanizes their powers and urges them to fight harder!

"Let's bring you down," Wraith utters as she flings a grappling hook that drags Citizen Dawn down from above. Wraith stealthily moves into the shadows out of sight. Tempest looking at his gene-bound shackles that once held him prisoner, feels a deep rage emerge as he calls forth a squall that hits all the Citizens with a torrential rain. Taking her sword from her side, Fanatic exclaims, "Absolution you are called. And Absolution you shall deliver," as she strikes Citizen Blood.

Wanting to get the juicy details, Miss Information from the paparazzi tv show begins reporting. She attempts to get interviews with the Citizens and the heroes, causing them to not be able to react without putting her and others in danger. Another citizen, Hammer, arrives behind the heroes. "Know just how weak you truly are," Dawn says as she hits Fanatic. Assault hits all again with a flurry of blows and Hammer finishes up with a fiery attack!

"What do you think of us now Lega...oof," Dawn exclaims as Legacy hits her with a back-fist strike. "I don't like to hit women," Legacy began,"but for you I will make an exception." Wraith gathers a few items in the alley to make an impromptu weapon and creates a razor ordnance in the shadows. Seeing that they are in danger and hindering their efforts, Tempest summons a flash flood that sweeps the paparazzi off their feet and gently takes Miss Information and her crew away from the scene. Tempest calls forth another wave from the squall and sweeps away Citizen Assault. Filled with conviction, Fanatic takes Absolution and knocks out Citizen Hammer.

As he falls back, a fiery blast from Hammer is sent off in direction of the newly repaired monorail, but fortunately misses its accidental target. Citizen Dawn raises her hands to the sky and brings a devastating aura down from the heavens that thrashes the area and everything surrounding, sending the heroes reeling and slams into Fanatic, sending a message.

Legacy stands up first and gives a motivational charge to not back down! He hits Citizen Dawn with a strong punch that refreshes the hope of his teammates. Wraith sends out a stun bolt that shocks and weakens Dawn as Tempest slashes her with a lightning strike sending her to the ground. As she recovers and gets up, he directs the squall directly at Dawm pushing her into the brutal censure that Fanatic has prepared and follows with an exorcism that burns Dawn with a holy conviction.

Seeing a need for a temporary retreat, Dawn flies to the rooftops to lure the heroes to her. Unbeknownst to them, Citizen Anvil waits with her and a newly revived Citizen Hammer watches the heroes begin to make their way up to the roof. As Legacy arrives first, Dawn sucker-punches him back into everyone causing the group to stumble and Hammer sends a flame attack that burns the heroes.

Feeling a surge of strength, Legacy uses another motivational charge to hit Anvil and give everyone a chance to recover. Breaking out her utility belt, Wraith sends a stun bolt that catches Anvil as she slips into the rooftops shadows stealthily. Tempest decides to activate his Elemental Subwave Inducer as he sends his squall once again to hit the nefarious force. Donning her Aegis of Resurrection for protection, Fanatic performs a final exorcism on Anvil that banishes him from the rooftops.

Down, but not out, Dawn once again rises above the heroes and brings forth another eclipse as she fires upon Fanatic, clipping her wings. Hammer spreads his wave of fire across the rooftop leaving no stone unturned and hitting all of the heroes, but the Wraith fortunately finds cover to somewhat protect herself.

Taking the brunt of the attack, Legacy endures a heroic interception as he again charges Dawn while the others recover. Taking out another grappling hook, the Wraith again drags Citizen Dawn down to the rooftop, ending her channeling of the eclipse and knocks Hammer back with a stun bolt from the shadows that sends him flying off the roof onto the railing below out cold. Seeing that they are exhausted and desperate, Tempest changes his squall into a cleansing downpour for the heroes who feel refreshed from the gentle rain. Despite the forgiving rain, Fanatic feels nothing but wrathful retribution and she righteously attacks Dawn pounding her off the roof and crashing into the concrete below causing a traffic pileup.

Citizen Sweat arrives to help Dawn back to her feet. As the heroes arrive, Dawn throws a dizzy, weak punch towards the Wraith that misses her completely. Seeing that Legacy is giving the orders, Sweat tries to grab hold of him to keep Legacy at bay.

Not wanting to be caught, Legacy intercepts Sweat and charges at Dawn once again. The Wraith sets a timer on her utility belt and sends it and her stun bolts flying at Dawn as they explode and moves back into the shadows. Tempest's squall returns, barraging Dawn and Sweat. Seeing the need to try and end things quickly, Fanatic brought forth what seemed like the end of days and banished all except the heroes and Dawn before using an exorcism on Dawn herself.

The end of days extends beyond Fanatics control as it begins to cause damage that almost creates a casualty until Wraith leaps from the shadows, saving the innocent resident. Citizen Spring arrives, bringing a calming wind for Dawn, but it is of little use as Citizen Dawn attempts once again to hit the Wraith to no avail.

Motivated, Legacy charges Dawn again as the others ready themselves. Wraith returns to the shadows to prepare herself for an attack by giving some of her trust fund to some bystanders for some quick supplies. Distracted by the Wraith's actions, Citizen Spring is sent into the stratosphere by Tempest's attack and follows up with a hit on Dawn and a continued barrage from the squall. Undaunted, Fanatic uses an exorcism on Dawn once more to purge the evil from within.

Down to her last bit of energy, Dawn realizes that the fight might soon be over and contemplates targeting the innocent citizens of Megalopolis. Citizen Spring comes crashing down and lands on her feet to send a calming wind to ease Dawn's pain. Feeling clever, Dawn acts like she's going to hit a bystander, but aims for Wraith as she avoids the attack.

Legacy looks upon his ring remembering the words inscribed: "Furthering your Father's legacy," and galvanizes the group to fight harder as he charges Dawn one last time. Wraith follows him with a newly acquired razor ordnance that drops Dawn and Tempest finishes her off finally with a lightning slash.

"How," Dawn begins, "how could I lose...? I am the most powerful being on Earth..." Citizen Dawn falls forward, exhausted and defeated. Legacy picks her up and carries her as the rest gather the other Citizens together. Seeing a growing need for incarceration of these and other super-powered individuals, Legacy begins working with local officials to discuss a way to house these criminals and prepare for whatever may lurk in the future.

Little did he or the other members of the Freedom Four and their friends know that their next foe would be one of the greatest threats to be found on Earth...

There was one point where Exorcism had 1 dmg from melee and 1 from radiant. The way I played it was 2 melee and 2 radiant rather than 3 dmg total. Was this correct?

Correct; each instance of damage is increased (or reduced) separately.
