(Team America#3) – Mister Mayhem brought three experts (Misters Magic, Mind, and Muscles) to capture the strange being known as the Marauder. Deducing the Marauder was somehow connected to Team America, he ordered his group to capture them in order to flush the black rider out.
Observing the motorcycle team after they finished a race, Mister Mind used an ERG cannon to paralyze the racers, while Mister Magic used a spell to turn them into energy and store them inside a nullagon (a five-sided jewel of his own making). Mister Muscles drove the van to take them back to Mayhem Central, a vast underground complex. Seeing the Marauder entering the compound, Mister Mayhem ordered the trio to capture the rider. The first was Mister Mind, who mentally controlled various deathtraps and a giant cyborg. The Marauder was able to outrace and out maneuver every trap and obstacle. Reaching to a lever, the Marauder shut down the power, creating a backlash that caused the mentalist great pain. The next member to attempt to capture the Marauder was Mister Magic. Either altering the physical reality or at least the Marauder’s perception of it, Magic managed to drive the Marauder to the ground, helpless. Unseen by the mystic, the Marauder mentally summoned his/its motorcycle, remotely driving it into Magic and knocking the man out. With Magic injured, Mister Muscles expressed his joy at a chance to tackle the strange rider. Brandishing an electrostave (an electrified dueling stick), Muscles was impressed at the Marauder’s display of strength. His joy turned to shock when the Marauder reached up and gripped the electrified weapon. With Mister Mind mentally increasing the voltage, Mister Muscles tried to pry the weapon from the Marauder’s hands, but he failed. The current grew to such a degree that Muscles’ insulated gloves melted, sending the deadly current into both Muscles and the Marauder. Mister Mind, overwhelmed by the strain, blacked out at his computer station. The room was dark as the power grid failed. When Mister Mayhem entered the chamber, he found the three misters unconscious and the Marauder nowhere to be seen. The freed members of Team America then took his full attention. Using his infrared goggles, he was able to spot the team as they drove around in the darkness. Failing to understand how they were able to dodge his laser blasts (his firing gave away his position), Mayhem was knocked down by Wolf.
When the power was restored, Mister Mayhem was nowhere to be seen. The three other misters were still unconscious and were presumably taken into custody.
