THE BLUE RIBBON CRISIS – NO JUSTICE!
Hans Martz, the evil Wizard now controls the Blue Ribbon. Mister Justice has the power to defeat the Wizard but no way of finding him. Mister Justice had teamed up with Bob Phantom who maintained the Blue Ribbon, and together they had chased the Wizard from one end of the multiverse to the other. Bob and Justice became separated and the Wizard was able to remove Bob Phantom from all of time and space. The power needed to defeat Bob Phantom cost the Wizard dearly and since then there have been slow flickers of loss of control.
Mister Justice without Bob Phantom has been searching the multiverse with no sign of the Wizard. At the same time, the Wizard has been hunting Mister Justice. Hans traveled back to the 11th Century and murdered Prince James of England before the Rogers Rebellion with no effect on Mister Justice. Hans tied to kill James as a child and still, Mister Justice continued to hunt him. Hans cast a spell to erase James from existence and that did not slow Mister Justice from his quest to set the multiverse right. Finally, in desperation, the evil Wizard tries an enchantment of entrapment and Mister Justice fades away. As we see Mister Justice reappear he is in a small dark room, as the room comes into focus we discover he is trapped in behind the lens of an eyeball. As we get a fuller view, we see Mister Justice trapped in the pupil of Dustin Simmons pounding on the back of the lens trying to escape.

THE BLUE RIBBON CRISIS – THE HISTORY OF EVERYTHING!
After the events of the last issue, the Shield turns to Mister Justice and says “What just happened?” Mister Justice explains to Joe. “Originally there was only one universe and the heroes began to appear in 1939 to fight off a great evil appearing in Europe. In 1940 Joe Higgins, you became the Shield. The first patriotic hero to fight evil with truth, justice, patriotism, and courage. But the Wizard Simon took your heart and gave it to a Goodman but you were never the same. After the war, you retired in January of 1948. You had a good run as a hero, but now was time to focus on your career at the F.B.I. settle down with Betty Warren and raise Dustin Simmons.
In 1959 the Wizard Simon returned and tried to replace you with Private Strong, a combination of yourself and a superman created by Wizard Seigel. By now you were 50 and well past your ultra-hero adventures.
At the same time Wizard Simon brought a young boy, Tommy Troy into our universe and fractured it into the multiverse held together by the Blue Ribbon. Wizard Simon took the form of a Genie Turan and changes Tommy’s entire world letting forth Marvelous magic that did not belong in our universe.
Tommy was an orphan boy who with the use of a magic ring could become Spiderman. But as the Marvelous magic caused the first fracture, Tommy was no longer Spiderman, he was now the Silver Spider and no one noticed the change in reality. As the fracturing continued Tommy was no longer the Silver Spider, he was now the Fly. No one in the universe saw the change from spider to fly. But the fracturing around Tommy continued as he was transformed from a young orphan boy into a full-grown adult without anyone including friends and family noticing. But this caught the attention of the Wizard Seigel, as we mentioned before Seigel has a super champion and he came to Tommy Troy in January 1964 and changed him from the Fly into Flyman, again the shift, in reality, went unnoticed. But once in our universe, the Wizard Seigel changed reality again. In May of 1965 when you would be 56 years old you had an adult son William, who would follow in your footsteps. The reality was so twisted that you were missing and no one tried to save you. Not your son William, not your wife Betty or your adopted Dustin, not your best friend Blain Whitney, no one seemed to care you were missing.
William was also affected by the fractured magic he changed back and forth between being named William and Joseph Jr. without anyone noticing, in fact, William and Joseph Jr. had been the same person until they were split into twins and again this change in our reality went unnoticed.
By November 1964 you were freed from your spell of encasement at age 53 yet thought Wizard Seigel’s magic no one notice you and your son were now the same age.
In April of 1966, the Wizard Seigel cast a spell to bring back most but not all of the ultra-heroes from World War Two who were all in their mid to late 50s and de-aged into their 20s. The spell was so powerful that it has continued for more than 50 years; none of the ultra-heroes have aged a day and no one noticed.
There have been minor fractures of reality where Rosie Raymond didn’t want John to be a superhero and then, that disappeared and she became Pow Girl followed by another shift, in reality, were she and Ralph Hardy became brother and sister. John Raymond also became his own son and the ripple, in reality, caused John Sr’s hair to change color from moment to moment without anyone noticing or pointing it out.
In March 1983 you went out with the Mighty Crusaders when you were 64 years old and Bill was sent way to the Military never to be seen again. After a few years of fighting the good fight, you faded away again.
In October of 2012 the Wizard Kaminski brought you back at age 103 and while you looked older you didn’t look 103 you looked more like Sean Connery when he was 50. You took on a new band of heroes, the New Crusaders. While they were in their teens, their parents fought with you during World War Two. The US entered the war in 1941, 71 years earlier. Your friends were all approximately 100 years old and yet they had teenage children. The magic of the Blue Ribbon warped time and made these lapses in time and logic all seem normal.
In October of 2015, the Wizard Segura made the Shield female, Victoria Adams, and sprinkled her across the Blue Ribbon. Instantly she became the Shield from the American Revolution until the present day, and no one noticed there was retroactively a new Shield in the pantheon of Shields.
In January 2018 you were de-aged, not for your actual age of 109 but from your time with the New Crusaders. All of a sudden you were in your forties ten years younger than the last time you fought for justice and seventy years younger than the age of your birth.
Hans Martz was what never really there. He was a piece of fan fiction that took hold of our reality. When fans couldn’t accept that the Wizard turned evil, Hans was born and gave an excuse for Blaine Whitney’s actions. Hans became more powerful than our reality and he took control of the Blue Ribbon. The only way to defeat Hans was to allow him to think he won.
Hans traveled the Blue Ribbon attacking the ultra-heroes when the least expected. At the last moment, I stored their essence in the mind of a child, Duty the Boy Detective. Triggered by his memory of how things used to be, all the heroes were freed all at once in one place and were able to subdue Hans who was nothing more than an idea himself.

Rachel “Ruby” Reuben is Reuben Reuben’s little sister. They ended up in different orphanages. One day, she happened upon the scene as a bunch of bad guys were sneaking up on Red Rube in an alley, where he’d just defeated one of their number.
Thinking to warn him, Ruby called out to warn him, “Hey, Rube!” Since she shared his genetic heritage, the Reuben ancestors’ gift worked for her, and she transformed into an adult form, clad in his costume.
She was young enough that she hadn’t yet developed much of a self-consciousness about being topless, and dove into the fray, much to the surprise and disadvantage of the bad guys together.
Once the bad guys were defeated, Rube asked who she was and why she was wearing his costume. She explained that she did wasn’t wearing on purpose, she’d just called out to him, “Hey, Rube”—as soon as she repeated that call she transformed back. Recognizing his sister, Rube transformed back and explained what must have happened.

THE BADGE ENTERS THE ARENA!
Glenn “Badge” Badjowski, leader of the Summit Alliance is a Cleveland, Ohio police officer and a Superhero.
As the police force grew tired of superheroes always stealing their thunder, they dressed up one of their own, Officer Glenn Badjowski, for P.R. purposes. As other heroes ended up forming a team with him (using him as a form of legitimacy), he outgrew his jurisdiction and ended up taking the job more seriously then he thought.
He originally just saw himself as just another police officer and scoffed at wearing the outfit, not really even liking superheroes all that much, but as time went on, the lifestyle came to define him.
He competed in, and was of the winners of the Brawler’s Ball round 4
