The Movement #1: We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not forgive. Who defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in the DARK OF NIGHT? When those who are sworn to protect us abuse their power, when toxic government calls down super-human lackeys to force order upon the populace…finally, there is a force, a citizen’s army, to push order BACK. Let those who abuse the system know this as well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED. We are your neighbors. We are your co-workers. And we are your children. And The Green Team #1: INVENTORS! EXPLORERS! ADVENTURERS! Do you need money to finance an important project? Then you should set up a meeting with THE GREEN TEAM! • Nature of world-changing idea: • Amount requested: • Does your project have the potential to: Fracture space-time? Replace the combustion engine? Attract extraterrestrial attention? Prove/disprove existence of deities? Piss off The Justice League? Render the human body obsolete? If any of the above are checked, please fill out liability release form GT2013-05. Send any 82 drawings, plans, models, or photos with request. Heh, timely. Very 2012.
