Edit this Reference

Confirmed

  • Muerto is Thiago, from 'Potential Sidekick' in Spite's Deck.
  • Thiago goes on to take up the mantle of Ra in the Miststorm Universe

Questions Answered on The Letters Page

  • From Podcast Episode 74
  • Why does Muerto look so haphazardly put together? He's a pile of wreckage and wasn't so much "constructed" as "cobbled together into the best approximation possible".
  • What's Muerto's deal [enters a bunch of options in quick succession]? "Ghost possessing a robot" is pretty close. Also, when he possesses other devices the skull motif lines goes with him.
  • How does a cyborg relate to the teenager situation? Because he's a teenager's ghost haunting a robot. He does the brooding, sit in the corner and mope teenager thing, only with much better reasons for doing so. He really is one of the most heroic members of the team, though, as he's the one who's there for all of the right reasons. The cruel irony is that he's the one that had such a crushing loss to get him there.

  • The strangest member of the team [which is an interesting thing to say as they just talked about Aeon Girl] and the one we've potentially known about for the longest [so reveals coming, I guess]. In the Rook City set, in Spite's deck, we met a helpful young Potential Sidekick named Thiago Diaz [!!!], a good kid growing up in Rook City.
  • He's in middle school and his grades are slipping as he's constantly daydreaming about heroes and how Megalopolis has a lot of them as opposed to his city, which only has a few. His parents are not blind to this - they make a deal with him just prior to his freshman year in high school, if he gets straight As all year, they'll take a family trip to Megalopolis where they can do stuff like take the tour in Freedom Tower. This gets his attention and he applies himself. It turns out the family doesn't have enough money to all go, however, so he gets to take a bus trip there and back on his own (although they've got everything on an itinerary for him and people on the other end to meet him).
  • He shows up at Freedom Tower as soon as it opens in the morning, excited to see all of this stuff that he's already familiar with (an Omnitron eye, lots of various relics and alien artifacts from other encounters, etc.). Then this giant cosmic entity shows up and destroys Freedom Tower along with everyone and everything in it. That's the end of Thiago Diaz' story as he dies, like not a "and then he died" thing, really dead. The End.
  • Days to weeks later, there's a lot of wreckage around the city and the consciousness of Thiago Diaz "wakes up" in a pile of electronics. He freaks out a bit, which is understandable as being in a collection of broken machinery isn't normal for a teen. After Freedom Plaza gets built, a bunch of wreckage is brought in to study to try to learn more about OblivAeon (parts of Bunker suits, Tachyon's tech, Wraith's gadgets, etc.). Thiago is part of all of this. He kind of haunts Freedom Plaza, showing up a few times as kind of a ghostly outline (with a sugar skull motif already present) or a creepy voice coming over an intercom speaker. While he finds that he can transfer himself into other electronics, he always reverts back into the equipment he "woke up" in.
  • As he comes to know this, he also makes a mental transition from "I can inhabit this stuff" to "I am this stuff" at which point the skull motif manifests on the equipment and it assembles itself into a recognizably humanoid/skeletal form (not "it is now a metal skeleton" but "a bunch of junk that's in a vaguely skeletal shape") that kind of just hovers around. If he transfers himself into other devices, the "body" will just fall into a pile of junk again until he returns to it.
  • People are freaked out by him at first, but some study is done and it's determined that it was a combination of the OblivAeon energy and all of the relics and whatnot in the room with him that made this happen. He's gone back to his home, but doesn't interact with his family - he looked through the window and saw that they have a shrine set up for him and remember him on the Day of the Dead. He is dead now. "Soy Muerto."

So, Brandon Bradley is doing his Momentum Courier Services thing in Megalopolis and has managed to get things well established (sending money home, etc.). One day he decides that he needs to step up his game and finally goes to Freedom Plaza to see what they can teach him. While he's on the way there, he gets attacks by this giant bug man (like, 6-7 feet tall and made of bugs rather than being one giant bug). It's noticed that Brandon is "made of the stuff" that kept it prisoner for so long.

As the fight goes on against the bug creature, other heroes (young heroes) start showing up to help (a girl with crystal/rock fists, some robot-looking guy, a girl who seems to give him more confidence with a touch, and some weird girl who's blasting the thing with blue energy, but doesn't really look like she knows what she's doing). These heroes weren't working together, they just came together in this situation - they're not doing particularly well against the bug monster, Myriad [mentioned in a few places in previous episodes], but they're doing their best to work together and come up with tactics to use against it. Eventually some energy beams hit Myriad from the sky, at which point the bugs all fly off and disperse.

This is Legacy (Felicia at this point, remember), who flies down and says that they were doing well for some kids who were getting their butts kicked. See you in class on Monday. The new arrivals seem to know what's up, but Brandon is confused as to what just happened. Legacy flies off but the others stick around - the conversation revolving around them thinking that he was already a student and he explains that he was on his way, figuring that he'd get in. "Looks like you just did." Usually Freedom Plaza will assign the newbies to a team to work together. These four had not yet been so assigned, they just happened to come across the fight. Legacy saw them working together well and had wanted to have a group to train, and so Daybreak is formed.
