Status Report 3571-C "Operation: Black Lotus"

From the Story Arc: WCO Report: Operation Black Lotus

Next Story in the Arc: Subject Chug vs. the Family by Chug (Friday, September 03, 2004)

(posted Friday, August 27, 2004)

Comrades, General Lu Kai-Shek of WCO Superhero Defense Division Chi has passed on hard copies of the most recent auditory dictations and illustrations from Subject C. As by superior orders of the Chinese Ministry of State Security (planted by our operatives), 5 Year Plan is periodically asking Subject C to respond to a series of questions and record his efforts to fight crime in Paragon city.

In my opinion, Division 4's plans for Operation Black Lotus will be a dismal failure with Subject C. Although it would appear at first to be an ideal candidate (due to it's abilities to withstand damage, high chance of recovery and reuse, and duplicity with orders), we have tried similar experiments previously in Russia with Subject C and had no success. Subject C apparently expresses severe disciplinary problems when asked to conduct activities that goes against it's own sense of morality (which unfortunately means devout aversion to lethal methods). I emphatically suggest using other heroes in CCCP and Red Brigade, as many already have violent tendances and would be excellent candidates for such a covert operation.

Begin Edited Transcript of Session 4...

This is comrade 5 Year Plan. My contacts with the Ministry of State Security have procured this interesting device for oral dictation. What is unique is that the machine is able to auto translate many languages and account for the unique inflections of individual's voices without previous supplementation of it's memory.

Members of CCCP and Red Brigade have all given reports on our activities in America and our dealings with various criminal elements in Paragon city. This information I believe has been very useful in combating similar criminal efforts world wide. I have been told by my superiors in China, that our reports have been helpful in thwarting expansion of the Tsoo into China and other Asian countries.

Because of the importance of these documents, I feel we have had one comrade in our ranks who has been unable to express his thoughts, and his input has been severely neglected. This concern has been echoed by my superiors in China, so I have asked comrade Chug to give his insights on fighting various criminal elements in Paragon City. While they are simple thoughts, he might eventually provide some insight and, if anything, a unique perspective on villain operations in America.

I have also decided to have him draw illustrations to go along with his oral recounts of dealing with such villains. These will be attached with my report and copies of the dictation session. I apologize beforehand as many of the illustrations will be rather crude and presented in an odd medium. Comrade Chug has been very obstinate in requesting he draw with crayons.


I alwayz see da 5th kolumn marching around and dey bark orders like 'Keep in line!' an 'Youz salute!' An dey speak to da peopulz dat everyone iz weak and dey shuld be in charge. But I dink dey just mean. I try to march and play wiff dem, but dey get mad and yell at me. Dey usually try to beat me up but sumtimes dey fire fun stuff at mez.
