Rubber Duck Traffic Jam
On May 16th in the Skyway City district of Paragon City, Rhode Island. During the height of rush hour traffic, the villain Faux Show inflated an 80 foot tall rubber duck on the roof of a tall building and let it fall onto the highway. The resulting crash injured and killed several motorists and causes a backup of traffic for over seventeen hours while damaged cars and road were repaired. The entire incident was prolonged by a large wind propelling the duck around the area causing multiple crashes. Faux Show escaped custody leaving behind a bill, in a form of sick joke. Punchline was captured and incarcerated.
The Pigeon Parade Incident
During the Hero Appreciation Parade in Steel Canyon released thousands of sick pigeons over the parade. The deluge of bird droppings unleashed by the birds was enough to scatter the streets and end the parade. In addition he had managed to tamper with the confetti released during the parade which caused many of the pigeons to explode violently when they consumed it. During the event He and his henchmen robbed the 38th Street Bank and escaped custody.
Glitter Bombs Away
In the Founder's Falls district Faux Show set multiple bombs throughout the area and released a statement only some of the bombs were real and some were fake. The real bombs were all placed on a dam while the bombs in the city were all filled with pounds of glitter. In a mad attempt to cover the area in glitter then blow the dam and flood the town in order to spread the glitter over as much of the area as it could. Luckily several heroes of the city working together managed to foil his plan and stop the damn from blowing up. Several glitter bombs did detonate and were shiny for months. Faux Show was captured and incarcerated for his crimes. He and Punchline escaped prison shortly after with the help of his Henchmen
In order to "prank" hero Malcontent the villain filled several apartments in the King's Row district with unappetizing flavored jelly beans. He left a note saying he couldn't figure out which one was the heros so he filled several and to please deliver the leftover jelly beans to her. He escaped custody for this crime.
