The dialogue in the first panel was originally from the Schism: Handhold MegaBrawl. It was added here in order to improve the continuity of the story.

Megabrawl Story: The Schism: Handhold
LoH Cards 282 help from above.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: This is even worse than I suspected --

-- Worse than even Shimmerstorm led me to believe!

LoH Cards 282 help from above.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: She brought me here from the 80s to show me that The Schism was not just a threat in my time.

-- Show me that The Schism is a threat to this reality's very existence!

LoH Cards 304 the schism.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: It is tearing its way into our reality through holes in at least three different points in the timeline.

Agents have done their best to create that hole in this time --

LoH Cards 304 the schism.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: The actions -- sometimes necessary actions -- have created openings in other times.

But we are going to need everyone to focus on the task at hand.

LoH Cards 271 team spirit.jpg The Crime Blotter: Did someone say "everyone"?

Devastatrix: This is not the time for personal differences!

LoH Cards 271 team spirit.jpg The Southside Sentry: Let's slap this hand back to where it came from!

Shimmerstorm: And hope we are all ready for when and where the rest of it tries to come through.

Beginning of Issue
LoH Cards 318 cover fire.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: Welcome to the frying pan!

The proverbial fire is right behind me.

At a critical point in the history of what you know as The Genesis Squadron.

LoH Cards 318 cover fire.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: The person you know as Moxie's powers have just emerged.

And there are forces in play trying to capture her ... again.

LoH Cards 318 cover fire.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: You have been brought back further in the timeline to help save her ...

... and for your experience fighting The Schism.

LoH Cards 318 cover fire.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: I am going to put out this grease fire over here.

You find Moxie.

Beginning of Fight: Moxie: Genesis
LoH Cards 313 outer strength.jpg Moxie: I have had a very...

LoH Cards 313 outer strength.jpg Moxie: And I am prepared to use this newfound power.

On anyone who stands in the way of that.

End of Fight: Moxie: Genesis
LoH Cards 328 welcome wagon.jpg Moxie: You convinced me that I have to learn how to use these powers.

And to seek out the others like me that you mentioned.

They said something about a Dr. Tessera.

Or the emergency room. Makes no difference to me.

Beginning of Fight: Codename: Soldier
LoH Cards 331 codename soldier.jpg Codename: Soldier: My young protege feels that his role comes with an obligation to banter.

I am Codename: Soldier and we do need to "question" the doctor.

LoH Cards 331 codename soldier.jpg Codename: Soldier: We were the subjects of a program conducted by Dr. Tessera

To create enhanced soldiers for when the Cold War started heating up.

LoH Cards 331 codename soldier.jpg Codename: Soldier: The program was unceremoniously shut down when the funding ran dry.

One way or another.

And The Schism cannot be far behind them.

Beat us in combat and we will tell you where to find her.

End of Fight: The Three Harmonies
LoH Cards 349 the three harmonies.jpg The Three Harmonies: If you need to make some money we could always use someone with your skillset.

It is not a bad life. Do a little collection work during the day, fight in the evenings.

LoH Cards 349 the three harmonies.jpg The Three Harmonies: Ah, yes, Dr. Tessera. She has another lab set up not far from here.

But I would hurry if I were you. You are not the only person looking for her.

Genesis and Genesis[edit]

Beginning of Fight: The Abyss: Genesis
LoH Cards 336 the abyss genesis.jpg The Abyss: You have not responded to Billy's coercion or Zeroth's persuasion.

The Abyss welcomes the challenge of a willful adversary.

If you can withstand the fury of Helios you are free to do as you please.

But you seem more evolved. Another generation of our children perhaps?

LoH Cards 345 dr tessera.jpg Dr. Tessera: My "dear" Zeroth keeps so many secrets...

Come closer and let me look at you...

LoH Cards 345 dr tessera.jpg Dr. Tessera: And by "look at you" I mean open you up with a scalpel.

And see what secrets you contain.

Abominations Unite[edit]

Beginning of Area: Abominations Unite
LoH Cards 325 shadowplay.jpg The Abyss: Are you done with your little diversion?

Helios: We are getting stomped out here!

LoH Cards 339 arch villainy.jpg The Abyss: Literally!

Helios: And this cosmic appendage appears to have some additional boots on the ground.

Beginning of Fight: Dr. Tessera
LoH Cards 342 scientific method.jpg Genesis Squadron Member: Dr. Tessera and The Three Harmonies have both decided to roll the dice on a new reality.

And are doing everything they can to keep us from stopping The Schism.

Beginning of Fight: The Three Harmonies

The pair of them are grotesque mosaic experiments far removed from their human origins.

Beginning of Fight: Schism: Footfall
LoH Cards 344 last stand.jpg Genesis Squadron Member: This thing is leaving footprints across the city.

Let's track it down and turn that leg into an oversized end table!

End of Issue[edit]

The last panel dialogue was originally in the Schism: Footfall megabrawl. It has been added here in order to complete the story.

Megabrawl Story: Schism: Footfall
LoH Cards 318 cover fire.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: Are you done scratching your itch?

You probably found more questions than answers.

LoH Cards 318 cover fire.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: Let's deal with the task you came back to the time to deal with in the first place!

Save the hard looks for later --

LoH Cards 339 arch villainy.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: If there is a later.

If The Schism manages to make it through into our reality...

LoH Cards 344 last stand.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: Then we may very well end up having never existed.

The Genesis Squadron was formed to prepare for another threat.

LoH Cards 328 welcome wagon.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: But they have barely had time to get to know each other.

Much less how to work as a team.

LoH Cards 347 schism footfall.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: We need to find every able body to join this battle.

And if we can somehow overcome pretty steep odds...

LoH Cards 318 cover fire.jpg Aloysius Zeroth: ...You will live long enough to carry a grudge.
