Less than one day after the battle at the Whitehouse, Law Matani is in one of his best business suits sitting in a conference room.

Across the large table are empty seats, and behind them is a perfect view of Central Park, showing the Manhattan skyline under the mid-day sun.

While he relaxes in his seat his phone is on the table, playing a live press conference being held at the Whitehouse, in which President Skyline addresses the nation, or more accurately, the world.

While this isn't the first time an attack on the Whitehouse has happened, the involvement of Horizon makes this a matter of global political concern.

His presence suddenly shifting overseas has raised brows all around the globe as many countries fear that their bid for his services was beaten, or that he possibly lied about not leaving Japan until he finished his time at UA.

President Skyline first revealed that President Harrison's death was, in fact, not a simple heart attack, but the first attack by the Evoltionaries to succeed.

But instead of publicly crediting the villains, the government kept things quiet to force their hand again, this time with more leads to track them.

This eventually led to them getting spies into former Pro Hero Optic's organization, now publicly known as the villain Sentinel.

Using this information they engineered the perfect situation, one in which the villain would have no choice but to strike.

By sending Star and Stripe out of the country they forced Sentinel to act, all while they'd already had Horizon on standby as a trump card.

'We are still compiling data on who and where the remaining members of the Evolutionaries are, but I'm glad to report that over 3 thousand members have already either been arrested or surrendered themselves to us,' the president said, causing an uproar in from the press.

Dozens of questions were hurled at him, including the major concern that Pro Heroes turned against the people they were meant to protect, and how that would make the civilian population feel toward their guardians moving forward.

'This is not a situation that can be dealt with easily or quickly, it will take much effort and teamwork. But together, as a nation, we can recover and become even stronger than before. The ideology of 'Might makes right' is more apparent in the world now than at any other point in history, this is a natural consequence of a superhuman society.

But being part of a society means helping your fellow man, especially those who aren't as capable. Those who believe in that barbaric ideology are vastly outnumbered, and as we saw in Washington DC, they are also hopelessly outgunned.

I still believe in the system we have, and in the good people who are a part of it, so I ask you to simply watch us closely as we earn your trust once more,' was the president's official stance on that matter.

Another uproar occurred in the crowd before they settled down, and someone finally asked what most of the world was wondering.

'Does his involvement in this incident indicate that Horizon will be moving to the United States for the foreseeable future?' a woman asks, and the world waits with held breaths for the answer.

'No,' the world breathes a sigh of relief, especially those in Japan. 'The stars simply aligned for him to help us for a short time, at least until his suspension in Japan is lifted. Although, I have convinced him to stay until the end of summer possibly.

Due to his suspension from Pro Hero work in Japan, Horizon's presence there is not fully utilized. In exchange for helping us with this small matter, he has been granted a coveted 50-State License to continue growing as a Pro Hero within our borders.

He can act within the capacity of a Pro Hero at his leisure wherever he desires within our borders, and has already made it clear that he will be moving around to help the most unfortunate medical cases whenever he can.

As Horizon is 'The Miracle Ward', that is simply another benefit of allowing him to perform his natural functions instead of being under house arrest.'

'Are you at all concerned about the possibility that he still cannot control his Quirk?' A reporter asks. 'A Gigantomachy within our country could be catastrophic, especially now that he's allegedly much stronger.'

"Oh please, I'd make that look like a joke with my current power," Law says, rolling his eyes. 

'Many people have raised such concerns, but I assure you, Horizon is in perfect control of his power,' he hears the president say. 'And if he's not, well, we have someone who can handle such a situation...'

Law can't help but smile at that, "Well it makes sense he'd have to say his Pro Hero is stronger, but now I'm even more excited to meet her..."

"Mister Matani," an older caucasian man with small purple flames on his bald head enters the room. "I'm sorry to keep you waiting."

"It's not your fault in the least," Law responds, also speaking perfect English as he gets up and shakes the man's hand. "I got a bit excited and arrived early, your secretary told me you were in another meeting."

"Yes well, we've been working on something big recently," the man says as he sits opposite Law. "Something that I'll be happy to pitch to you once things are a bit more concrete, it's a phenomenal investment opportunity."

"If it's anything like the last few, I'm sure I'll be interested," Law chuckles as they both relax. 

"So, are you here to buy another skyscraper around Central Park?" The man asks. "Maybe you could buy one closer this time, we could be neighbors. How about that one?" the man points to the building just beside theirs.

Law chuckles, "No no, the building I have is plenty for now. I'm actually here to discuss my overseas investments."

The man frowns for a moment before schooling his expression, "Ah, and what direction are you looking to take with those."

"How many of your clients are taking money out of the Japanese markets right now?" Law asks.

The man tenses for a moment, "more than I'd like, but I can't say any more until the official quarterly report."

"People are scared because Horizon moved for a while, and they're taking their money out, right?"

"Right, we told them it's only temporary but, certain markets are so volatile that our assets and holdings can fluctuate within minutes."

"They aren't exactly wrong," Law says. "Japan's crime rate is about to spike, villains will run wild, the League Of Villains and their freaky monsters will rampage and cause billions if not trillions of dollars in damages, it will be chaos."

"But it will recover," the man says.

"But that will take years, and people will lose money in the process."

The man winces, now sitting across from one of their largest single clients who could see through all the tricks.

"And how exactly would you like to proceed?"

Law thinks for a moment, then simply nods, "Send my people a list of everything that's being dumped, they'll sort through the wreckage of this and we'll buy up whatever we're interested in for the same price it was dumped for, that way you'll actually make some profit.

Of course that offer only stands if we get first preference to everything that was dumped in the chaos."

The man looks confused for a moment, "you're willing to lose money, to buy assets, which will lose value for the foreseeable months or maybe years, why?"

"They will regain them eventually I'm sure, I'm young, I've got time," Law says. "Besides, I've told you many times before, this isn't about the money. I'm here for legacy, and it's nice having Japan in my pocket."

The man shakes his head, "You know, this country has very detailed and complex laws to prevent situations such as this, and so does Japan, but the way you have things set up so expertly dances around them. It may be the most impressive thing I've seen in quite some time."

"Coming from you, that means a lot," Law says. "Oh, and, does your company hold any assets in Italy at the moment?"

"Sicily, Rome, Milan, Venice, or Bari?" the man asks. "We have both money-making assets and properties there, but I warn you, these are beloved by the executives."

"Sicily and Milan, I'm thinking of taking a trip there sometime this summer..."
