Chris' shot did more to startle the villain than injure him, as both the pistol bullet and Blackbird's force attack seemed to no effect. You're going to have to do more damage than that to piece Kang's body armor or force field or whatever it is he has for protection.
Tom, meanwhile, leaps up from behind the table and swings for the closest opponent which, unfortunately for her, happens to be EnergyStar. Tom's swing connects, causing 14 points of damage (that's AFTER Body Armor is taken into effect). The punch gives EnergyStar the impression that Tom must be on the same thing Mike Franklin was on...
Brushing off the attack, EnergyStar decides to go for the "threat she knows" and swings her staff at Kang (78 Karma spent), hitting the villain hard enough to injure him, but not enough to take him out.
Kang replies by firing at EnergyStar (the only one who has managed to injure him so far), striking her for an additional 30 points of energy damage.
Rex (Kang) 7
Chris 7 (we are here again!)
