Villainy and Blackguards Incorporated #13: The House

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 has its own agents for various functions. Some are very combat oriented. It's a dangerous world and with the Authorities always threatening incursions its best to be well defended. VABI is very happy to have the services of the man known in the media as The House. A more steadfast defender there never was.

The House is a fearsome looking warrior. He can grow up to twelve feet tall and has one of those faces that don't look so much as sculpted as hacked. His suit is a black duroplasty design with an almost formal look to it. He can fit well in social functions as well as battle and makes an excellent bodyguard.

Enhanced strength and durability are his most well known powers, but he does come with a special surprise that VABI has taken advantage of. The extra mass when he grows has to come from somewhere. With most it's a quantum phantom effect but not with the House. He actually is a doorway to a small extradimensional space. When VABI discovered during a normal exam VABI was quick to teach the House to exploit this doorway.

In that space there is now a liveable base. There are 36 troops highly trained and armed living there full time in rotation. There are also two additional superhumans (Ashe and Fyre) who can fly and project energy pulses. So the House is a one deployment if the situation merits it. There's nothing like a host of soldiers popping out of a twelve foot giant guns blazing to bring a quick resolution to most problems.
