A short video. Uploaded to YouTube and other file sharing sites. Within minutes it is mirrored across hundreds of channels and found upon all corners of the internet.

Amaranth stands in front of a stained cinder-block wall. His topknot brushes against the tiles of the dirty roof.

He begins to speak and his booming voice fills the tiny room.

The Registration Act. A brutal injustice upon a downtrodden community. Unethical experiments. Cruel sentences. The iron boot of government power upon the backs of the free.

That iron boot belongs to the Iron Man; Anthony Stark, and his league of jackbooted thugs. They are the face of corporate power and the iron fist of government oppression. His 'Enforcers' are aptly named. A collection of mercenary thugs, corporate yes men, and merciless government killers.

Empowered by the will of the man who stole the Presidency from the people, Orpheus Ziev, they have brought the hammer of injustice down upon the heroes who only seek to aid their fellow man.

Their attack against Venezuela was a demonstration of their power. Legions of troops, thousands of tons of explosives, godlike powers and more descended upon a peaceful country without warning. They sent a message to the world.

That message was 'Oppose us and die'.

By attacking Venezeula they have demonstrated that no country is beyond their reach. That they are willing to cross any border Bury any number of souls. Break any law and and strike where they wish.

Ladies and gentlemen the Enforcers can and have reached any land on earth.

There is nowhere left to run.

He stands in silence for a long moment. At last he speaks again.

We are often forced to choose between right and wrong. Left or right.

But this time there is no choice between right and wrong. There is only the choice between up and down.

Up, into the freedom all men dream of. Up into the hope for a brighter, freer, open future.

Or down.

Down under the heel of the 1%. Down under the boot of all-powerful governments. Down into the grasp of tyranny.

He gestures toward himself.

Ladies and gentlemen you know who I am. You know what I stand for and you know what I have done. Never have I bent my knee to a tyrant. I will not start now.

Never have I stood aside and allowed my mutant brothers and sisters to be oppressed and enslaved by humanity. Nor will I now sit upon the sidelines and watch 1% of humanity shackle the 99%.

I record this to call upon you. I call upon my fellow mutants. I call upon able bodied humans. I call upon the alien, I call upon all free beings.

I call upon YOU.

I call upon you to remember the martyrs of history. Those who died for freedom were not fools.

I call upon you to remember your ancestors who died in muddy fields by the millions to stop the Nazi advance. I call upon you to remember the names of your honored dead. I call upon you to honor their sacrifice.

I call upon you to muster your courage. I call upon you to dare to dream of freedom.

I call upon you to fight for your freedom from the sea to the sky.

I call upon you to join me.

Amaranth reaches forward and clicks off the camera.

Damn. I don't know who's right, who the "good guys" are anymore.

@arquitenens: There is no good or evil. No right and wrong. Only up and down. Up into the arms of freedom, or down into the grasp of tyranny.

@amaranth_strix: My favorite, I think, was Sherman. But so many of those guys gave me laughs when we were learning about them.
