Golden Age Campaign Update
This weekend we ran an adventure which saw the first major change in roster for the JSA in several years: Starman, Daredevil, Green Lantern, Flash and Doctor Fate all passed to reservist status for a variety of reasons, while Wildcat and Mr. Terrific joined the JSA to bolster its ranks.
This new team had greatly reduced power, and so asked the Mystery Men along for a particularly dangerous mission: their acquaintances in the sunken city of Atlantis had been attacked by an advanced Nazi U-boat, under the command of Captain Zahl:
Who stole the legendary Trident of Poseidon with the help of an army of Deep Ones (which the nazis subsequently betrayed, but not before taking a few Spawn of Cthulhu with them). The combined Mystery Men/JSA team-up had to recover the trident and destroy the Spawn before the Nazis could use both as a last-ditch effort to turn the war around.
With a bit of help from the Blackhawks, they managed to do just that, but not before several hijinks ensued; including Hourman being temporarily controlled by Poseidon himself, and the Atom discovering he had mutated a superpowered Atomic Punch as a result of radiation exposure he'd suffered a couple of years back.
The PCs also met the Atlantean Regency Council leader Vulko:
They learned from Vulko that the last king of Atlantis had recently died, and that there was currently a sort of 'succession crisis' going on that left unclear who would take the Atlantean throne. No sign of a guy in green pants and orange scale mail just yet, but it was yet another of a variety of signs that had appeared in the campaign over the last few years that the seeds of the silver age are present.
