Portal Corporation announces contact with other Universes
« on: April 11, 2017, 12:30:14 AM »
Portal Corporation made an explanatory news release after a very puzzling photograph from Atlas Park appeared in the 'Paragon City News-Picayune' today. A small crowd at the scene was shocked to see a lineup of heroes and villains, all claiming to be 'Crash Positron'.  The crowd was even more befuddled when what appeared to be identical heroes flew in and questioned the newcomers!




CHECK BACK LATER!  MORE TO FOLLOW!

PORTAL CORPORATION PUBLIC RELATIONS PARAGON CITY - Peregrine Island - Portal Corporation today announced that the mysterious crowd seen in Atlas park yesterday was a group of delegates to a meeting being held by the Portal Corporation Multiversal Research arm of the company in an undisclosed location within Atlas Park. The spokesperson for Portal stated that the persons seen in Atlas Square were 'not impersonating any local heroes.  That the way they were dressed was the same as some familiar supers was purely coincidental' and they 'will not be seen in public again in any location where they might be mistaken for known names, faces and logos'. 
      When asked who Crash Positron was, and why the group all claimed to have that name, the spokesman refused to comment, except to say, 'Portal Corporation is dedicated to the life of Paragon City, and copyrighted heroes, and has the situation under control. We will be releasing additional information as it becomes available.'
      Local superhero, Canary Fist, was shocked to see what seemed to be an exact duplicate of her - suit, logo, size and all - and exclaimed to the crowd: 'Portal Corporation has some explaining to do! If this is an attempt to dilute my standing in Paragon City, they will hear from my lawyer! (then she paused)
On, the other hand, if this is cosplay, it is the best ever done! I started talking to my friend, March O'Hare, but she didn't seem to recognize me at all.  Took me a minute to realize this was another one of the duplicates!'


On the News Stands the Very Next Day!

NEWS RELEASE - PARAGON TIMES-PICAYUNE - ATLAS PARK 1ST NATIONAL BANK -A Paragon Media Company helicopter caught this candid shot from the top of the 1st National Bank outdoor amphitheater before being chased away by PPD helicopters and Longbow operatives in jet packs.
The relationship between these strangers, Portal Corporation, Longbow, and the PPD is not known at this time. 
A PPD captain stationed at the base of the building told reporters that, 'There is no threat, at all, posed by these visitors to our city.  We are here only to protect their privacy during this potentially historical occasion'. When pressed, she declined to speculate on what this occasion might be.

SCIENCE NEWS SERVICE - Reporting from Atlas Park: A leak from a 'reliable source' inside the Portal Corporation indicated today that the 'Portals' created by the Corporation often connect to 'alternate universes'.  This strongly confirms the 'Multiverse Theory, which posits that there are an 'uncountably large' number of universes in an 11-dimensional space. ('Uncountably large' because it contains all possible combinations of all particles and space, resulting in a very large number, but not an infinite one.)

Viewed from 'above' in that 11-dimensional space, the Multiverse might look like a very large book, with each of the alternate universes (called branes) looking like a page in that book.
(VERY THIN PAGES! Only a Planck length apart!)


Considering that the Portal statement released earlier on the suddenly appearing Atlas visitors came from the 'Multiversal Research Division', we strongly suspect that these persons are 'not from this universe'.  The questions of who and what they are are still unanswered.

MEMORANDUM FROM: Dr Justin Drake, Portal Multiversal Research Division TO: Dr Ervin Levine, Research Coordinator
With the breakthrough in the 11-dimensional selector, we able to connect rapidly to a large number of universes, scan them with the Goggle Composite Scanner, and then select another.  Obviously, for the branes where the Earth-equivalent planet has no internet (or similar networks), this takes longer and sometimes requires a robot probe.  Fortunately, the RoboticsInc units have been completely successful in all branes we have tried them in.

     After collecting a great deal of data, we are sorting the alternate universe data by Serial Number - Planet name - Star name - Nickname.  We have found that those items tell us a great deal about how similar each universe is to our own. For example, we are the first universe we knew of, we call our planet Earth and our star Sun and arbitrarily nicknamed our selves EARTH-1, so our name in the brane catalog is 1 Earth-Sun-EARTH1.  The first universe we catalogued after coming up with the sorting system was KL990DF Soil-Sun-Canary.
They call their planet 'Soil', their star 'Sun' as we do and they are entangled with us through the hero Canary Fist. (More about entanglement later.)

FROM THE DESK OF: Ronald Lake, Data Coordinator, Multiversal Research Division
Dear Captain Klein:
Thank goodness the public has forgotten the accidental release of the CPs in Atlas Park.  I found out that the Portal technicians were trying to use the Portal in the lower level of the City Hall to avoid this exact thing, but somehow the focus got shifted and the CPs ended up in the main square!
We have the CPs sequestered in the meeting rooms in First National Bank and they are having their meeting now.  (We are, of course, recording the whole thing.) So much exciting data!

A QUICK NOTE FROM: Captain Deborah Klein, PPD Special Services
Our guards at First National have also noticed a rapid drop-off in people asking about the CPs.  We are keeping our presence low-key and out of sight of the citizens as much as possible. I hope this is as important as your Director indicated it was - we are using personnel and resources outside our normal budget.  We would appreciate a full briefing on the nature of this 'occurrence' as soon as possible.

FROM THE DESK OF: Ronald Lake, Data Coordinator, Multiversal Research Division
Dear Dr Drake:
You have been very patient with us as we collected data on the CPs. (Turns out, there is a very good reason to call them CPs!)
I have attached some pictures from a photo session we held in First National's roof-top amphitheater.  These pictures were taken as souvenirs for the visitors (and for our use in sorting out the entanglement issue). 
    When speaking to one of the CPs, it is SO hard not to call them by the names we associate with their appearance.  They too, have trouble, as the other CPs appear to them to be heroes from their own brane.  So, we and they have started calling them CP-{hero name} .  The one that looks so much like Canary Fist, for example - calls herself Crash Positron, of course, but everyone else calls her CP-Canary.

More photo session pictures:
When asked to line up, the participants formed into two groups - not really sure why:


This Photo Was Marked 'By TKD' - Reason Unknown

MEMORANDUM FROM: Dr Justin Drake, Portal Multiversal Research Division TO: Dr Ervin Levine, Research Coordinator
In response to your questions:
As far as we can tell, all the alternate universes (branes) we have observed so far have one thing in common - a hero, deity or demiurge-type character named 'Codewalker' (or something very similar). In some universes, he is a hero that works out of the public eye, but still manages to save the day.  In others, he is a mystical, mythical, world-creator that appears once in an eon to make upgrades to the world.
   
Then of course, there are the CPs. 

In about 48 branes, there is a person named Crash Positron.  In some universes, she (they are almost always female) are a Planetary Class hero and in others, a minor area hero.  The odd thing - to us at least - there is an Earth-1 (our universe) hero that resembles them exactly!

CCTV at Portal captured Chat Noir and Chat Chocolat interviewing CP-Noir

This was discovered when the local hero, Chat Noir (and her friend Chat Chocolat, who cosplays as Noir for Paragon Chocolatiers), happened to be at the Portal facility when CP-Noir came through from DF889KK Earth-Bright-Noir .  A long conversation between the three soon revealed that 1) Noir and CP-Noir were identical in every conceivable way (right down to the contents of their closets!) 2) CP-Noir said her name was 'Crash Positron'   3) Noir knows the minor EARTH-1 hero 'Crash Positron' and CP-Noir did not look like him in any way   4) CP-Noir's world does not contain a hero named 'Chat Noir' 5) Various historical incidents didn't occur in CP-Noir's version of the universe, such as The Paragon Event that removed everyone's powers in EARTH-1's Paragon City and some other historical events did, such as the Sino-Japanese Hello Kitty War of 1989 (which see in 'Historical Differences Across Entangled Branes'  under DF889KK Earth-Bright-Noir).

This 'coincidence' led Portal Researchers, in cooperation with Goggle Search, to add 'Crash Positron' to the automatic searches taking place and this led to the discovery of 48 (so far) branes in which a hero named Crash Positron, but otherwise the same as a EARTH-1 local hero, exists. These are all remarkably similar to our own universe and all contain a CP. The researchers called these 'entangled universes' because of the similarity to 'entangled photons' used in cryptography.

FROM: PORTAL CORPORATION MULTIVERSAL RESEARCH DIVISION To: Dr Everett Krahnk, Theoretical Physics Group
From our observations and recordings of the CPs, we seem to have found a causal effect  - all the other-universe 'Crash Positrons'  - at least the public appearances of them - date from soon AFTER the EARTH-1 'Crash Positron' appeared (if you allow for the varying time speeds).  Would you and your colleagues verify this for us, please ?
We now suspect that the EARTH-1 'Crash Positron' caused the others!

We are currently attempting to get in contact with the EARTH-1 Crash Positron through the hero Chat Noir.
