Steelheart stared into the eyes of the humans. Their eyes filled with anger, frustration, and fear. Fear? why was there fear in their eyes, was it the possibility that they were afraid of him. No, they were afraid of something else. They were afraid of their boss perhaps? Yes, he could tell by the way they worked that if they didn’t get results, their boss would fire them. That was why they were frustrated, they couldn’t get any samples from Steelheart, his skin would not be penetrated. Little did the scientists or Steelheart know what would happen next. Steelheart would break free, and control Newcago.
The scientists were working as hard as they could. They were trying to get samples and run tests to get the results their boss wanted. Steelheart was just trying to be good, he tried to help the humans. The humans disregarded him and other epics as below the humans different, but also the key to unlocking new technology.
Steelheart tried helping the humans, defending them from other epics. The humans denied that they had been saved by Steelheart. Steelheart would not try to help the humans again, he was going to rule them. He broke out of the holding cell he was in. He left and started planning his revenge on the humans, he was going to make an example. Destroy the government, show the epics that they can do whatever they want and no one can stop them.
All he had to do was find the right city. Chicago he thought, the perfect city for his palace and his empire. He would destroy important buildings, and do what he had to. He would rename the city to Newcago, and make the city into steel. Steelheart didn’t plan to kill all the humans, just those that disobeyed him. He would make the city desirable so people would be attracted to the city. He would make housing underneath the streets. Power water and food available to be worked for, but there were some problems where would he get the power. Another epic possibly, maybe if one even exsisted, he wasn’t sure. Steelhearts plan was almost in place he just had to get close friends, epics to help him control the city.
