Villains and Blackguards Incorporated #8: Gero Arte

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members.

VABI takes no political stances except perhaps a strong attraction to capitialism. VABI does recognize that its members may be far less apolitical. The general rule is a truce between antagonists on VABI property or else. Most members never ask "or else what?" Sometimes it is best not to know.

Among the political criminals (one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter) Gero Arte is a new face on the scene. A Basque separatist it's his self imposed duty to stick it to the Spanish every chance he can. He can do a lot of that becaue Gero Arte is a speedster. He can run at a top speed of 880 miles per hours. He also gets more resistant to physical damage the faster he goes. Armed with home made bombs he burst through nearly any barrier leave a "gift" and run out before the boom.

While they respect the VABI truce Gero Arte has gone up against the immortal terror that is El Roy several times. El Roy considers Gero Arte an upstart and baseborn. Gero just considers El Roy an ass. When they have met under truce conditions there is definite tension in the room. But they both remember...

...or else.
