A Transportation Board meeting was recently cut short by the appearance of masked crusaders. According to CBS Boston, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s proposed fare hikes and service cuts prompted a team of superheroes calling themselves The Fast Five to interrupt the meeting.

Stars and stripes! Breaking up a public assembly? Standing in the way of this great land’s process of government? No superhero worth his salt would have the audacity. Are these dubious do-gooders secretly supervillains in disguise? Or does corruption sit in the seat of power, and Virtue herself has become an outlaw?
Whichever the case, the Transportation Board (which is a really lousy team name whether you’re superheroes or villains) adjourned the meeting and retreated from their hall of transit, presumably through a secret passage hidden behind a clock, or a teleporter tube. The meeting was quickly taken over by the heroes, who declared all fares capped and guaranteed all services would continue. Except that didn’t really count because they’re not elected or appointed. No one even knows their secret identities.
We’ll let you know what happens when this team once again responds to the call of justice!
