Brawling with the Big Boys
- Mission #3: Back Alley Brawler, Hero (Freedom Phalanx)
Take out the Back Ally Brawler
Arachnos has learned that a member of the freedom phalanx is visiting Crimson Cove. Naturally, this can't be allowed to happen. Arachnos could give the job to their own Operative Rutger, but they know this one has to succeed. So, wisely, they have come to me. And, knowing your talents, I have come to you. Together, we can take out the Back Ally Brawler.
The Brawler is likely to be extremely well guarded, so we'll have to begin by creating a distraction. Get over to the Hellforge in Sharkhead Isle and steal some explosives. I'll fill you in on the rest of the plan after that.

Sharkhead Isle looks dingier since your last visit.
Excellent. My plan is all coming to fruition. Now, to create a distraction that will leave the Brawler unguarded. And then, to pounce!
Create a distraction
We have the explosives. Now, to create a distraction!
You will plant the bombs at the base intended to receive the Back Alley Brawler. With any luck, we'll shake Longbo badly enough that they'll leave him entirely unguarded. Then, Dread Tomax, it'll be your chance to take him down.
Now, this is going to be fun.
Mission Complete: You have planted all the explosives.
That base is a shambles. Longbow will have a scramble around to find another place well enough guarded to house their important visitor. And that should give you the opportunity you need.
Take down the Back Alley Brawler
You've disabled the base that was intended to receive the Back Alley Brawler. That means he's vulnerable. He's just arrived on Liberty Isle. Take him down. I must warn you: the Brawler's no lightweight. Even I'd bring help along to deal with him.
This could start an international incident. I hope you're ready for the press.

To Longbow, Liberty Isle is an inspiration. To Arachnos, it is a festering sore.
|Back Alley Brawler [Hero]|
One of the most veteran heroes in Paragon City, the Brawler is in semi-retirement, training the next generation of heroes. Though he rarely goes into the field these days, his power and fighting skills are still as potent as ever.
Mission Complete: ?
The Brawler has been beaten, Dread Tomax. Well done. Arachnos and I will deny involvement, of course. I imagine the Freedom Phalanx will want your head for this, but you can handle that, can't you? For now, perhaps we had better part ways. Nothing personal, but I don't want to be associated with you right now.
Souvenir: The Brawler's mask
You've kept the mask of the Back Alley Brawler as a trophy. It's a reminder of the adventure you like to call:
Brawling with the Big Boys
It began with a contract on the Back Alley Brawler, issued by Arachnos to Crimson Revenant. The hero hunter knew whoever did the job would take a lot of heat from the Paragon City government, so he passed the job on to you. Of course, the Brawler woul dbe well-guarded. To get to him, you first had to create a distracdtion. You journeyed to Sharkhead Isle, where you stole a number of Cage Consortium explosives.
Back in nerva, the plot thickened. You took the explosives to the Longbow base intended to recieve the Longbow base intended to recieve the Brawler, and planted them. You then made your escape and triggered the explosives, leaving a blasted mess in your wake. The Back Aley Brawler's welcome was certain to be less secure now.
The Brawler arrived on liberty Isle, but Longbow had not yet had time to muster a new security regiment. You swooped in and tore the hero to shreds. He now bides her time in an Arachnos prison, and you have risen in infamy both at home an in Paragon City. Not a bad day's work.
