There was always risks of people interfering trying to make themselves out to be the hero, but what happens when the one who tries to be the hero actually becomes the hero that was destiny had decided him to be. Since a few months after the incident with Anna, Ray had been thinking about something that had seemed so unfeasible at the time, that he had put his energy and time into other things, but with the recent events unfolding as they had, Ray had decided it was once again time to pursue the avenue of developing something, so that he would never feel powerless once again. His plans, he had kept on his database, was known to the server as Project ATOM, and over the last week he had finally finished the thing he had needed to make sure that the powerless never felt it again. He had the news on as he was tweaking something in one of the arms, as he saw there had been an accident and someone had been dangling off of a building. This was the chance he had been waiting for, just the right moment in time to test the suit. He packed up the components and headed down towards the accident site, so he could assess and do his thing. He slipped into an alleyway close by leaving his bag, and his clothes there changing into the suit and helmet, darkening the visor, before flying off up towards where the person was dangling before they slipped. He grabbed them as they fell looking at them identifying their vital signs, and making sure nothing was broken before landing on the ground kind of roughly, but he made sure to hold on tight to the person.

“Sorry, first time for the test run, and wow that was a doozy, thank you. I mean, you’re safe now.” Ray had never thought of saying thank you to someone after he had just saved them but that was the kind of guy he was always courteous and always polite.

LETS GET OUT OF THIS TOWN, DRIVE OUT OF THE CITY, AWAY FROM THE CROWD. SAY YOU'LL REMEMBER ME STANDING IN A NICE DRESS, STARING AT THE SUNSET. RED LIPS AND ROSY CHEEKS, SAY YOU'LL SEE ME AGAIN IN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS.



Being in New Orleans wasn't something that Charlotte ever imagined for herself. She knew that her daughter had chosen to relocate to New Orleans for work and she knew that her son had been held up in California working as a police officer but neither had really been the blonde's cup of tea. She didn't mind visiting... but visiting cost an arm and a leg; she wasn't much more than a single mother that worked in bars and casinos to ensure her children had food on the table and a roof over their heads.

She was here now, not because it was something that she found herself able to afford or because it was something that she was wanting for herself - it truly just wasn't the city for her as far as she was concerned - but because her daughter needed her now more than ever.

Her daughter had been shot and while she was recovering and getting along well enough as her body slowly healed, she was still confined to a wheelchair while her spine, muscle and skin worked on healing properly. She wasn't going to be paralyzed for life - something that was a huge relief to Charlotte - but she wouldn't be on her feet for quite some time.

She had given up her apartment back home and she had quit the steady job that she had been working so that she could rent a place in New Orleans and find a job closer to her daughter. Charlotte might not have been the most active mother in her kids's lives - she was always working to ensure they had everything they needed - but that only went to prove just how damn much she loved each of them.

The blonde wasn't at all oblivious to the fact that there were many people gathering on the sidewalks, cars stopping in the streets to gawk up at the person that seemed to be hanging from the side of a building. No one seemed to know exactly what was going on, but there was one thing that everyone seemed to be on the same page with: something wasn't right; this person was very clearly in danger.

Some were on their phones, trying to reach out to emergency lines while others were using their phones to record whatever it was that was taking place. Charlotte was among those that stood quietly, bundled up to avoid the cold wind all while hoping (and silently praying) that nothing worsened the situation.

Granted, silence turned to confused gasps and mumbled questions as someone in what only looked to be a robotic suit - or a robot, itself, as far as Charlotte was concerned - catching the person that had been holding onto the building's ledge just as they had slipped and begun to fall.

Everyone seemed to watch as the person was returned to solid ground and the man - or the robot, whichever it was - thanked the victim of the situation. Some swarmed around that being, wanting to ensure they were safe and uninjured while Charlotte couldn't help but to gawk at the man in the suit; one eyebrow raised as she mentally added this - whatever this was - to the many reasons why she thought New Orleans to be too strange a place to reside.

Many people had begun to surround him, but he was only doing what was necessary to understand the fact that he had wanted this to be a successful test run of the suit, and the suit still had some bugs to be worked out. He looked amongst the crowd gathering intel to make sure no one else had been hurt or injured, even if it was only the one person whom was dangling from the building. He gets a hit from his database, which he had been keeping, and it recognizes Charlotte Smoak. He was unsure why it was pinging her right now, but he figured it was better to ask to make sure she was alright rather than leaving it, because sometimes that could be the case. He makes his way through the people surrounding him taking pictures and recording video over to the blonde woman, looking at her with some concern in his eyes, but she would not see it.

“Are you alright?” He asked her as he stepped up to her. Sure, he was a caring guy and this was his own chance to make sure that people could be saved from the world that they lived in. Ray was trying to make the world a better place, well in his mind, and the ATOM suit was the first instance that he could make a difference before someone was to do something drastic in the city. Sure he had read about the others but this was his own chance to make sure that the city had become something better than what he had left behind. “Anna, this is for you. Even if it is a suicide mission.” He thought as he waited on the blonde woman’s reply.

Charlotte hadn't at aall been expecting much of anyone to approach her given the fact that she didn't really know much of anyone in the city of New Orleans. She had been spending so much time with her son and her daughter that the blonde had yet to really begin making social connections of her own.

Raising an eyebrow as she watched the man - or the woman - in the suit approach her, Charlotte could practically feel every eye on her. Did they think that she knew whoever this was? Were they wondering what the connection there happened to be?

Glancing around as if she were trying to see if the being in the suit was addressing anyone else, Charlotte failed to see anyone else stepping in to answer the question that he asked. Was she okay? Of course she was; she hadn't been the one dangling from the side of the building, after all!

Still, there hadn't been a single moment in Charlotte's life when attention from a male - a potentially attractive and successful one, at that - wasn't welcome. If she had a fault, it was that she thrived on the attention of males not because she was an overly easy being, but because she had been deprived of that since the day her husband - now ex-husband - had walked out of her life.

Her children didn't hold much respect for that need, no child wanted to see their mother getting too much attention from anyone if it was in a sexual fashion, after all, and while Charlotte tried to be subtle with it, sometimes things just didn't pan out that way.

"I'm alright..." Her words were quiet as she wondered why it mattered that she was okay when there were countless other women (and men) around her that he hadn't addressed.

There were a few yet that he had to address, and he made sure that the medics were taking care of the people but he wanted to understand why the sensor with her went off when it did, the last name should have given it away, but he wasn’t too focused on her right now. He picks up the person he just brought down from the roof, and carries them over towards the ambulance that was just arriving on scene, this was the calling he needed especially after he had heard what had happened to Felicity. He did not want to be helpless anymore, and this was the new start he had been seeking. He placed the man inside the ambulance, then turned around looking at Ms. Smoak. He began checking the others around him but always kept focus on the task at hand.

“Well, that’s good Ms. Smoak, I apologize, but the sensor went off and I thought there was trouble from you.” He said as he saw the man’s wife, down on the ground that she was the next who needed his attention. But he was more interested maybe that she was related to Felicity, but he didn’t feel the necessity to ask about it. The accident dislodged a piece of the building but it hadn’t fallen yet, and the people around the area were looking up. He stood up and turned around picking the woman up.

“People you need to back off the area please, this building is a bit unstable, and we need to keep the area safe.” He said as he started walking forward hoping the people would take a hint.

There were a lot of things about the city of New Orleans that Charlotte found herself struggling to get used to. Unlike Las Vegas - where the blonde had been residing prior to relocating for her daughter's sake - the place seemed to be filled with actual superheroes rather than people dressed up as hero characters in hopes of gaining a few dollars by taking pictures with tourists.

This wasn't the first case of heroism in New Orleans of course; had it been, Charlotte might have been slightly more surprised than she was to see a man rescuing people so seemingly fearlessly and effortlessly. There had been reports of a man with a bow that ran around the city cloaked in green, taking out dirty cops and shady business partners while another man in metal - one referred to as Iron Man - seemed to be in the right places at the right time; that ended up saving the lives of many after a train incident Charlotte had been reading up on just weeks ago.

She had absolutely no idea who any of these heroic men were and she wasn't intending on staying in place very long; she wasn't the gawking type so there was no use for her to be lingering around just to see what else was bound to happen with the situation. Still, she was ever-so curious about the man that had gone out of his way to save any life that was in any potential danger. Now just wasn't the time to be asking questions.

Offering the man a gentle smile, Charlotte did a quick glance-around to make sure that no one was in immediate danger - not that she'd be able to do much about that - before she gently excused herself from the place in the still-gathering crowd that she had been standing; that place soon filling up just as quickly as she had left it vacant.

Charlotte was still able to hear the man's voice as she left, informing the crowd that the area was still quite dangerous and that they should all take to backing up, away from the potentially-dangerous building that could very well have pieces falling at random. While she hadn't been injured, Charlotte was still glad that she had started to walk away when she did, because things could have easily taken a turn for the worst.
