Mild soreness, nothing serious.
The Captain shuts off his rocket pack and lands on his feet, instantly breaking into a sprint. He draws his shield from his back and jumps through the remains of the window Rad entered through. Once inside, the Captain stops in his tracks and quickly assess the situation…
Several officers stand around an unnaturally
large man. Everyone’s attention seems momentarily distracted by the black-suited man who just ran in here and crashed into a wall.
The Captain throws his shield, which whacks Marko about mid-torso, rebounds off, hits a wall, and bounces back to Cap’s waiting hand.

One must never forget one’s manners, particularly in times of crisis.
Marko turns his attention towards Cap, the only person to hurt him so far. He charges at Cap who stands his ground, fully expecting to be able to withstand whatever this loser can throw at him.
Oops. Bad call on his part.
Marko throws a roundhouse punch that actually takes Cap off his feet. He drops his shield and stumbles woozily for a bit before bumping into a desk which he grabs on to in hopes of stabilizing himself. He rapidly shakes his head back and forth a few times.
He won’t be helping much next round.

Another window shatters, spraying shards of glass

. The mechanically augmented form of Pulsar flies directly into Marko, slamming into him and knocking him back a few feet, but not down. Pulsar lands (as there isn’t much room to continue flying around in here) and Marko stands facing him, looking extremely agitated.

She enters. Maelstrom follows. The entire door and frame collapses to the ground behind them and shatters as, after Pulsar’s dramatic entrance, the supporting framework for the front windows and door were pretty much destroyed. Maelstrom holding the door open for the past couple seconds is the only thing that kept it upright for this long.
Rad, Cap (stumbling), Pulsar, Marko, ‘Star, and Maelstrom now have a wide berth cleared for them in the lobby of the holding center. Uniformed police officers stand in a ring…a WIDE
ring around them, weapons drawn, but holding their fire, lest they hit any of the new arrivals (that would be you guys). They seem content to stand down and see how this plays out, hopeful that it won’t last much longer now that the cavalry has arrived.
