T.I.M, deployed by his benefactor to Shatter, a local dance club, infiltrated the office of Warner Cobrey, entrepenuer and gang leader, where he hoped to find plans for a hydroelectric plant. After an unfortunate altercation that trapped him in the gangster’s desktop computer, he was forced to physically manifest and was subsequently captured by Cobrey’s men.
Professor Grond eventually, after much heavenly prodding, found his student, Tanya Mishov at Good Samaritan Hospital. She had been assaulted by a debt collector, and asked the teacher to bring the man collateral. Charles instead brought money to pay off the loan. He found Cobrey in his office, with the captured T.I.M. After a brief exchange of words and aggression, Grond shifted into his rock form and made short work of security guard O’Donovan. T.I.M incapacitated Cobrey with an electrified kick to the cock. Vinny, one of the other guards, called for reinforcements. They arrived in the form of Brad Fitch, a fiery fellow insistent on burning up the club (literally), and Kaiden Bly, shockingly coated in metallic scales. T.I.M managed to secure a way to locate the file he was looking for, but Vinny revived Cobrey, who attempted to stop him. T.I.M shot both Percy (another guard) and Cobrey, blowing the gangster’s brains out across the desktop. Unfortunately, before he could escape, T.I.M was vaporized by an exploding fire extinguisher. Grond held his own against Bly and Fitch, though the arrival of emergency response teams cut the fight short. Grond was taken into custody by a special tactics unit. T.I.M, reincarnated through his backup copy, pursued the captors to the F.B.I base at Ford Munitions Plant, where it was revealed the man in charge of the operation was none other than Antonio Towers, the man in charge of the A.I. Program during the Cold War. Grond decided to join forces with his captors, while T.I.M broadcast his signal and located the target – a flash drive belonging to Cobrey, now carried by Fitch.
At about this time, Cross arrived at the private marina – just a short distance from the munitions plant. His charges had been kidnapped, and though he killed all three men guarding them, they were set on fire. I’m sure there’s a joke about flaming hookers here somewhere. At any rate, Bly, Fitch, and T.I.M all arrived at the marina at the same time. Fitch planned to turn the flash drive over to an unidentified operative, but T.I.M arrived just in time. He ran a car into Viscera, hurling himself through the windshield to zip into the device and destroy its contents.
At that moment, Grond arrived with James Fenris and his commando teams. A firefight ensued, and in the course all the nameless extras were killed. Bly, Fitch, and their contact escaped, but not before Fitch incinerated T.I.M. Fenris and Grond confronted Cross, and after a brief altercation and a missile from a helicopter, the F.B.I took Cross into custody.
