- Intro: A Crime Syndicate orders the capture of wonder woman
CABBAGES AND KINGS
The whole room had gone silent, the chairman paused for a moment but before he could continue Handro began to speak. "You mean instead of wasting the bitch you want to grab her?"
The chairman smile at Handro thinking how much he'll enjoy getting rid of this Idiot American. "Precicely, and not only capture her but also discover the source of her extraordinary powers."
"Excuse me chairman san but how do you propose to execute such an audacious plan." Takasawa spoke for the whole room, it was indeed an ambitious plan but details were needed.
The chairman was ready for this "My friends the threat from wonder woman is very acute and her removal is of paramount importance to retain the integrity of this organisation." Everybody nodded at this even Handro who remained quiet smoking his very large cigar.
"To achieve this I have taken the liberty of retaining the services of someone you are all familiar with." With that the chairman pressed a button on his chair, a few seconds later the large doors opened to admit a solitary figure; he stood in the doorway for a moment scouring the room with the attention of a hawk. Then he slowly walked towards the table and the council.
"Gentlemen I believe you are acquainted with Mr Kent." Everybody nodded, indeed they were Mr Kenthad a reputation that had preceded him; he was notorious for his work a consummate professional & was known more commonly by his code name: THE COLLECTOR.
The chairman turned to the council "I asked Mr Kenthere to provide an overview and analysis of the feasibility of capturing wonder woman, Nothing, I repeat nothing has been finalised and no action will be taken unless we are all in agreement." All heads nodded their approval.” Please begin Mr Kent."
Kentbegan his briefing "Thank you Mr Chairman, Gentlemen the challenge set before us today is how to deal effectively with wonder woman, the chairman has requested a feasibility report of the possibility of capturing her, the short the answer to that is YES it is very feasible." All members of the council remained quiet absorbing every word that Mr Kent spoke.
"Although she possess extraordinary powers which are in themselves quite formidable, she is not invulnerable, To illustrate I would like to show you a report compiled 50 years ago by the German SS in which it details an operation that was laid on to capture Wonder Woman, IT..."
Kent was suddenly cut off by Handro "Now wait a minute are you telling us that the only information you have on wonder woman is 50 years old There is no way that she can be the same woman she'd have to be at least 70 or more by now."
Kent was unfazed by this he knew that convincing these people would not be easy and the facts were to say the least startling but wonder woman had powers that were unique, was the possibility that she also did not age as normal humans do be any surprise on top of her other powers, he had decided that It was not beyond the realms of possibility.
"I realise that it sounds inconceivable, but question the powers that she has displayed over the years is her remaining young any more startling, but lets assume it is another wonder woman for a moment, she still possess the same powers detailed by the SS." The real bonus for us though gentlemen are that the report not only details how she was captured but also contains the secrets to her powers and therefore her Achilles heal."
Kent then went into the basics of her lasso of truth, her bullet deflecting bracelets and her special belt, "The belt is the key to her strength, once removed wonder woman’s strength is no longer present & she reverts to a normal woman."
Kent paused for a moment to allow the ramifications of what he was saying to be absorbed. "The Germans had only crude drugs in their time with which to capture her and keep her under control. Today we have drugs and devices that will allow us to easily overcome her powers and skills; in short not only is capturing Wonder Woman feasible her containment after capture can be guaranteed 100%."
Kent nodded to the Chairman indicating that he had finished his briefing.” Thank you Mr Kent, my friends the time has come to decide if this action is to be implemented, but before we do are there any questions?"
There were none, everyone new that Kent was the man for the job, his briefing had been detailed enough to point out that regardless weather this was the same Wonder Woman from 50 years ago her vulnerabilities were exactly the same.
"You will now vote gentlemen" Ordered the chairman all heads turned to the large screen on the wall and slowly a number of lights appeared indicating the votes. When all 9 had been lit up the chairman spoke.
"Thank you gentlemen it seems that Operation Frauline 2 is a GO"
