The Quinton School for Young Superheroes is still infested with Professor Stratosphere’s nanites. For over a week, they’ve been rebuilding the school from the Pop Man attacks and then adding onto the campus’s buildings, and now they’ve effectively doubled the school’s capacity.
Dorms, classrooms, cafeterias, and combat rooms have all been duplicated by the nanites. What was once a school fit for a maximum of 60 students can now house 120. And the nanites have not stopped building.
“Professor Stratosphere is monitoring the situation closely,” said the Muskrat, who has returned from his mission with the Peace Force. “It’s nice that they’re so effective at their jobs and that they’ve doubled the school for free. So far, we’re grateful.” The Professor could not be reached for comment as he was busy examining the nanites.
The students, who are suddenly finding themselves with extra space, are taking advantage of the situation. Gale Bradley, a.k.a. Star Girl or Bright Woman (she hasn’t decided which she likes better yet), is enjoying the extra space. “The dorms here are pretty much the same size anywhere else,” she said, “so now we all got another room, and we’re spreading out. Some guys have been punching holes in the walls to try and make them one room, but it doesn’t work for long as the nanites rebuild the walls immediately.”
In between classes, some of the students have been having fun blowing up the gargoyles and watching the nanites descend on the broken off statue and reattach it to the building in a matter of minutes, even from 400 feet away.
Asked if they were worried about the nanites, most of the students just shrugged it off. Matt Klutte, a.k.a. Sheer Man, said, “Look, I’ve had translucent skin all my life. That guy over there looks like a frog-wolf, and that guy can detach his joints like a freaking toy. Like, seriously, his arms just pop off like he’s made of plastic, and he can pop them in and out like nothing. These nanites are nothing next to us.”
