Season One Episode List

Hyperreality Bites Five strangers are forced into service on a mysterious mission, traveling to parallel universes and occupying the bodies of key figures.

Full Summary:

Mysterious agents for an unknown organization visited four individuals: a yoga teacher and secret cat burglar named Aquamarine, the aging rodeo queenRosie Harvin, and prison psychologist Jenika Clarkson. These three were coerced and blackmailed into blindly joining a secret program for purposes unknown.
Around the same time, Crash Jaxun, a professional gamer and hacker extraordinaire, showed up unexpectedly; he claimed to know about the program and demanded a chance to join it. Yet another individual, a technician for the program named Jebidiah Lexingon, was informed that his duties had changed and he would be joining the project as well. These five formed the core team for a mission that injects them into an alternate universe, where they occupy the bodies of strangers.

After a brief introduction to the Project Manager Col. Steve Richardson and Chief Engineer Dr. Samantha Simkins, as well as a vague explanation of the project itself, the pilots were directed into their metapods and immediately uploaded into their first alternate world--Earth 00668, Sentinel City.

The pilots found themselves in a waiting room, in the bodies of superheroes: Lady Veil, Hex Destiny, Mr. Moxie, Riptide, and Bombshell 3.0. These individuals had entered themselves in a competition reality show called American Sentinel, and they were grouped together for the team rounds, starting with a hostage situation in a bank. Unfortunately, a problem with another superhero with a prior claim forced Mr. Moxie to revert to his previous childhood title, Kid Titan, which he'd abandoned after writing a contraversial tell-all book about his experiences as a teenage sidekick.

The judges made a brief visit to the waiting room to welcome all of the contestants. They were:
--Doctor Dynamo, a one-time supervillain turned hero for the second time and a former member of the Sentinels;
--Katrina Callsman, owner of a well known superhero IP; and
--Encino Girl, who wielded the power of the valley.

Following an introduction from vapid host Bryan Seacrest, the newly branded Alpha Squad were sent into the challenge, where they proved less than stellar initially. They never got around to formulating a plan until fully mired in the problem. Some struggled to get into the building, while others were faced with Jackhammer, the Janitor, and the Curler inside. Kid Titan inexplicably began the challenge by punching the outside wall of the bank. Ultimately the were able to stop a lot of bank robbers, but not before Johnny Legion, another superhero with the ability to clone himself, swooped in and rescued the hostages out from under them.

It's only after the excitement of the challenge has faded that the team realize they have no logout interface and no way to step out of these avatars without outside help.

Earth 00668

Trapped in the bodies of superheroes, the team finds themselves unwitting contestants on America's hottest competition: "American Sentinel."  But is there something else afoot...?

Full Summary:

Following the failure of their first challenge, the team sat together and discussed their performance. They came to two points of agreement:
1. Talking together and formulating a united plan is a better way for them to achieve success, and
2. Johnny Legion is kind of a dick.

The team immediately had to revise their list of irritating competitors, however, when Reddit Lad came over solely to insult and belittle them. They exchanged verbal abuse, and ultimately the team used their powers to attack him in multiple small but humiliating ways. The argument was only stopped by an intern stepping in and sending them off on their next challenge: security work at a newly opened Sentinel City Mall.

On the bus over, one of the show staff informs Kid Titan that he's scheduled next for the confessional, and asks if he can get a bit of preliminary interviewing done before. Through the course of this interview, we learn about Butch Baker's career as a private investigator, and the event that drove him to return to superheroism.
