The phone, or gPhone, was good. While many phones were down in Manhattan due to the power and the knocking out of towers Tesla did a good job making it so the Guard can communicate. Though it made it hard for allies to get into contact with them. The message Reina Titán received had to be minutes old. The news it gave even older. Nicole Stanis and the police, agents, feds and military were using Sat Phones, walkie talkies, or other devices that could keep the communication going in the dark. Stanis had to contact an outside source to pass the message. A message about where Reina should focus her forces. She sent a message to her teammates back at the suite and put the majority of them in and around the Upper West Side while she would take East Village with Flash-Man as her only back up.
This split was smarter. Titán’s brief fight with one of the War Powers taught her one thing-they smelled Jerole’s power on her. She could beat them but it might involve a heavy response and that type of force could damage her surroundings. Peoples lives would be danger if she let it all out-but it might have to be that way. These relics, these Manhunters from the Red Planet, needed to be finished off quickly. Flash-Man can assist in dealing with damage and protecting lives. The other team should be able to handle the other War Machine, or at least wear it down. Huntsman had the most power and Mr. Monster had the smarts. The other three had their strengths. Gravity Woman could fight long range, Ichi had the guts and skill, while Kestrel could provide distraction and also work with keeping the sight clear of casualties.
Reina Titán moved across the dark Manhattan skies thanks to her gPhones GPS, which guided her far enough to see fire in the distance. She landed on the intersection of 2nd Avenue and East 9th Street and Reina sensed movement up ahead. She squinted, her powers allowing her excellent vision. So even in complete darkness her eyes adjusted to so Reina could view movement.
