Then, everyone wrote positive messages on cards to give someone they know, and spent the remaining time brainstorming on random acts of kindness each participant can do before the next workshop.

Mission# 18.2- 11/14/11- Duration: approx. 1 hr- 2 participants (returning)

A team of scientists on Branchborks contact the Squad for Good with concerns about the native species; they are mutating into Earth Turkeys! With most of the Squad attending to other missions, Captain Wonderful and Break must take the case as a super duo!

After months of observations and botanists from the Branchnorkings science team testing new vegetation samples against previously tested samples, they find something very odd about one of them. They inform Captain Wonderful of this oddity, and dispatch him to obtain a sample of the plant. He uses his super speed to deliver the sample to a lab on Earth.

The lab on Earth finds a protein in the sample, which is known to cause mutations in certain species. The sample’s isolated problematic protein is given to Captain Wonderful, who delivers it to Branchnorkian scientists. They verify the protein is definitively the cause.

After reviewing the case file and scientific research, Break approaches the local authorities. She gets their okay to introduce Numunazine in to their sprinkler system. This compound bonds with the protein, resulting in highly nutritious plant food for the Branchnorkings, and reverses the mutation. Nurse Awesome would be so proud!

Our heroes received a call from Vladicon V’s magistrate, who is all kinds of panic! Catpires are taking over the skies and shattering cities using all they can find as scratching posts, buildings, streets, furniture, and everything else they can sink their claws in to. Deserts are becoming litter boxes. The air is heavy with the high pitched hissing, which is much too much for the native vampires to bear.
Can our heroes keep these powerful catpires from further over-breeding? Can they prevent Vladicon V from being clawed apart?
