Total Tactics - Looking Glass

Total Tactics - Looking Glass
Post-Robbery Analysis
Idea Results: Reinforced glasses case, new suit ideas, paint grenades


Edward had been tinkering at his desk late into the night. He'd transformed himself into his metal form, because this was precision work.

But why was the Steel Sentinel, a bastion of strength, spending time on clumsy gadgets? He was no inventor, after all.

The answer was that he'd been confronted with a foe who could outmaneuver his brawn, the sly Looking Glass. He was a man whose technology enabled him to escape into some kind of alternate Mirror World, a power that made him immune to many of Experience's techniques. Physically subduing him was difficult unless he risked traveling into the Mirror Dimension. If he were stuck there, there would be little way out.

Of course, he had one advantage. He'd snatched Glass' spectacles with his magnetic powers before the criminal made his escape, giving him some insight into how his ability worked. The police captain he was closest to, Deborah Brown, insisted that he hold onto them as she sniffed out fencers within the NYPD's ranks. That had given him some time to mess with them, though he didn't dare enter the Mirror World, because if they malfunctioned, again, he would be utterly trapped.

It would be a mistake to integrate the temperamental technology into his regular arsenal. But, keeping the glasses on his person for emergency use might be the secret to defeating the Reflecting Rogue. On the other hand, if they were to break during a combat situation, they'd lose a valuable tool for stopping the thief. So, there was a dilemma of what to do with the cursed eyewear.

He'd decided to do his best to build a little reinforced case for them, such that he could slip them into his pocket if need be. With the precise stability of his iron fingers, he was able to piece it together rather quickly. Twisting little screws into place was easy with such steady hands. He worked like a machine.

Something else which had occurred to Experience was that Glass could potentially escape into his own reflective skin. If cornered with no mirrors or otherwise polished surfaces to jump into, that's something he might attempt. One solution might be a full-body suit rather than one which revealed the metal parts of his arms and face. It'd be expensive to place a new order just for a suit like that, but possibly worth it in the end.

There was a certain issue with tailoring his appearance to counter specific enemies...eventually, he might end up militarizing himself, which was not what he wanted. There were heroes who had built-in gas masks and tracking devices and grapple guns and all sorts of gear that usually wound up looking more like soldiers than public servants. From what he could tell, they sometimes made civilians nervous. He very specifically chose not to wear a mask, and while his identity was still secure because of his powers, Total Experience's "face" was there for all to see. That seemed important.

But is it more important than stopping Looking Glass?

There might be an alternate strategy.

Edward had some friends who were avid paintballers. Some of them had experimented with paint grenades, or pressurized canisters that would go off and cover an entire area in dye.

Non-reflective dye.

There was something to that.

That was why Experience had retrieved a few for himself, and started putting together an anti-Looking Glass utility belt of sorts. After all, he'd need to adapt if he was to put an end to the Polished Purloiner's plunder.
