Hyperion

A satellite of Saturn named for one of the Titans of Greek mythology, the son of Uranus and Gaea and the father of Helios, the sun-god.

(AK-107: 1. 441'6", b. 56'11"; dr. 28'4"; s. 12.5 k.; cpl. 206; a. 1 5", 1 3"; cl. Crater)

Hyperion (AK-107), formerly Liberty ship SS Christopher C. Adrews, was launched 24 June 1943 by Permanente Metals Corp., Richmond, Calif.; sponsored by Mrs. Percy Lindt; acquired by the Navy from WSA 10 July 1943 and commissioned 25 August 1943 at San Diego, Lt. Comdr. C. Newman in command.

With gasoline barge YOG-85 in tow, Hyperion sailed for the Pacific 18 September on what was to be a memorable voyage. During the 42-day trip, the tow wns lost twice; lightning struck the mainmast, a crewman was lost in high seas, and emergency flares were spotted but nothing was found. Hyperion finally reached Espiritu Santo, New Hebrides 30 October 1943. The following half year saw the cargo ship shuttling among the Solomon Islands bringing valuable suppies gasoline, diesel oil,rolling stock, foodstu1fsto the staging area for some of the Pacific's most hard-fought campaigns.

On 5 April 1944 ayperion steamed from the Solomons with 45 passengers in addition to her usual cargo of oil and supplies. Arriving 10 April at Emirau Island in the Bismarcks, occupied only 3 weeks earlier, Hyperion discharged cargo by day and steamed out to safety at night. She then returned to her valuable work in the staging areas, operating between New Caledonia, Guadalcanal, New Zealand, and the Bismarcks.

In the fall of 1944, as the war advanced steadily across the Pacific and culminated in the climactic Battle of Leyte Gulf, one of the greatest naval engagements of all time Hyperion had her first taste of battle. Departing Espiritu Santo 22 September, Hyperion picked up stores at Tulagi and joined TG 78.8's reinforcement group which supported Admiral Daniel Barbey's Northern Attack Force TF 78. She sailed into Leyte Gulf in a 33-ship convoy 29 October only 3 days after the conclusion of that great battle. During the next fortnight, Eyperion went to general quarters 87 times, fought off37 Japanese air attacks, and splashed 2 enemy planes.

Another tour of duty shuttling cargo in the staging area between New Zealand and New Caledonia ended in late April 1945 as Hyperion loaded 6,500 tons of Army engineering equipment at Noumea and steamed for Okinawa still the secne of bloody flghting. During the 18 daya it took her to discharge cargo at Okinawa 8 May, Hyperion witnessed naval bombardments of the Japanese positions on the island, the battles of Naha and Shuri, and countless kamikaze attacksshe was unchored less than 500 yards from New Mexico when two suicide planes damaged the battleship 12 May.

As the war drew to a close, Hyperion sailed for San Francisco 4 August 1945 ending 2 years of continuous service in the Pacific. The cargo ship had steamed some 75,225 nautical miles, carfied 150,000 tons of cargo, transported over 1,000 passengers, made 62 voyages to 29 islands and 37 ports, and had fought at Leyte and Okinawa. Hyperion had crossed the equator six times and the international date line four times (she celebrated two Fourths of July in 1944! ).

After minor repairs at San Francisco, which she reached 24 August, Hyperion sailed for the East Coast via the Panama Canal. Reaching Norfolk 24 October 1945, she decommissioned 16 November and was returned to WSA the following day. Hyperson was placed in the Maritime Commission National Defense Reserve Fleet, and was berthed in the James River until she was scrapped in 1961.

Hyperion received three battle stars for World War II service.


Hyperion

The Hyperion is a ​​​​​ Legendary Sword. It is one of four refined Necron's Blade variants, alongside the Valkyrie, Astraea and Scylla. The Hyperion's strength when compared to the other Necron's Blade variants is its additional 300 Intelligence , though it loses 10 Damage .

The Hyperion also grants +1 Damage and +1 Intelligence per   Catacombs level of the player. As with any Necron's Blade, it deals +50% damage to Withers.

It is often regarded as the best weapon in the game for magic damage and clearing (killing many low HP mobs), making it ideal for Mages. This is because its Intelligence allows you to use Wither Impact more, as well as increasing its damage with magic damage scaling.

Top 6 Best AK-47 Reviews

1 Century International Arms – WASR-10 16.5in 7.62 x 39mm Blue 30+1RD

While not the highest quality AK-47 on the market, this model is one of the best valued. This is especially true if you need one that is tough and reliable yet reasonably priced. The WASR-10 is perhaps best for first-time AK-47 purchasers and for those who are into pushing their gun’s functionality limits, particularly in tougher operating conditions.

Romanian made…

Century International Arms does manufacture in America. However, this WASR-10 model is predominantly made in Romania. This has impacted this model’s overall quality, particularly with regards to the receiver.

The reason for the quality reduction is that this part is milled to accept single track magazines. However, the magazine’s receiver well is more precision machined in the USA to accept standard magazines. The differences in manufacturing standards between the two countries results in magazine rattling when placed in the gun and when firing.

The above concerns are countered with the fact that this rifle has been thoroughly stress tested. It maintains a suitable performance for far more than 10,000 rounds. And it’s fairly low purchase price is a trade-off for no optic rails or attachments. The wooden parts, however, can be replaced.

Time and patience…

A slant-cut compensator comes standard with the original design, and a threaded barrel enables replacement. The trigger is another aspect to consider. Many shooters prefer to customize their AK-47 a bit by replacing the stock trigger. Also, upon first shooting, you will need to invest time and patience into dialing in the iron sights.

All-in-all, the WASR-10 model is definitely worth the money. Despite some issues with quality, this rifle’s admirable reputation for durability and reliability is maintained.

Origins

The super-being that would become known as Hyperion came to Earth as a baby, sent as the only survivor of the race of Eternals from a dying world. A human named Father raised him under the name of Marcus Milton, teaching him the morals of society. As an adult he became the super hero known as Hyperion, and protected the world along a team of superhumans known as the Squadron Supreme.

One day, his universe and another started colliding. While he was trying to prevent the destruction of his reality, he was left in the void his destroyed universe once occupied, as the only survivor, floating in nothingness.

Avenger

The group of scientists known as A.I.M. from another universe managed to pull him to their reality. He spent most of his time in captivity, until he was freed by the Avengers, who offered him a place in their ranks. Α]

His first mission as an Avenger was to rescue the captured members that were being held by Ex Nihilo, Abyss, and Aleph. After rescuing them he returned to Earth and accompanied the other Avengers to the areas hit by Ex Nihilo's Origin Bombs. During his trip to the Savage Land, he found the Children of the Sun, a race of evolved beings created from an Origin Bomb. Α] He began spending a deal of his time caring for and educating them. Γ]

Time Runs Out

After the Avengers fell into S.H.I.E.L.D. authority and Steve Rogers tried to use them to hunt down the Illuminati, Hyperion left the team and dedicated to keep on teaching the Children of the Sun. At the request of Sunspot, Marcus joined da Costa's own Avengers team, in order to investigate the incursions. ΐ]

Using A.I.M.'s resources, Sunspot managed to put into operation a machine capable of transporting individuals across the Multiverse, in hopes of finding the source of the decay of the Multiverse, and a group of them, the "Multiversal Avengers," embarked in said mission. Hyperion was among these heroes. Δ]

In their journey, the Multiversal Avengers arrived to the base of the Black Priests, whom they believed to be enemies, as they would destroy alternate Earths. After discovering their true motivation, that of saving the Multiverse, the Multiversal Avengers allied with the Black Priests, and were informed of the true enemies they had to face, the Ivory Kings and Rabum Alal. While the Black Priests tried to find Rabum Alal, the Multiversal Avengers would set out to find the Ivory Kings (also known as the Beyonders). Ε]

The Avengers traveled across numerous universes, navigating the map left by the Mapmakers. After one last jump across universes that cost Nightmask's life, the Avengers found themselves face to face with a fissure in time and space. From it, two Beyonders emerged and demanded the heroes to fall back. Upon denying their request, the Avengers faced the Beyonders. In an attempt to reprogram one of the Beyonders, Abyss and the Ex Nihili sacrificed themselves, and after being stabbed by the second Beyonder, Star Brand used his last breath to unleash the energy within him and destroy it. The only surviving Avengers, Odinson and Hyperion found themselves against an incoming wave of countless Beyonders, and faced their deaths with delight. Ζ]

All-New, All-Different Marvel

When Earth-616 came back into existence, so did Hyperion and the rest of the world. A few months after these events, he left the Avengers and joined the Squadron Supreme. Η] His first mission with the Squadron Supreme was to punish Namor for destroying Doctor Spectrum's world and cooperating with the Cabal as well as numerous attacks upon the surface world. During the attack, Hyperion yanked the city of Atlantis from the ocean, lifted it high into the air, and hurled it down utterly destroying it. Hyperion then decapitated Namor with his Atomic Vision. This called the attention of the public, who either thought they were too dangerous or the only way to find real justice, as well as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s, specially Namor's long time allies, agent Jim Hammond, the original Human Torch, and Steve Rogers, formerly known as Captain America. ⎖]

Later, tormented by his violent actions, Hyperion decided to take some time to himself, not letting any of his teammates know where he went. While in Lawton, Oklahoma, he entered a diner where he met a trucker named Juan. After a brief talk about how lost he felt, Hyperion seemed to take Juan's advice about living on the roads to help him understand things better to heart. ⎗] Soon after, he received a signal from Nighthawk, who was about to have a confrontation with the Avengers Unity Division.

Arriving at the place, he was confronted by Steve Rogers, who claimed that he didn't believe that Hyperion could act the way he did from their time together as Avengers. Since talking wouldn't solve the problem, the two teams ended up fighting each other. While battling Human Torch, both were taken down by a fire blast from Jim Hammond, the other Human Torch, who arrived together with an army of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. However, before the Squadron Supreme could be captured, Thundra and Tyndall appeared to save them, teleporting the group to Weirdworld. ⎘]

Weirdworld

Thundra carrying a wounded Hyperion

Once at Weirdworld, they were immediately attacked by Arkon, who was possessed by some individual. He struck a shocked and powerless Hyperion with a lightning bolt that pushed him off a cliff. Thundra later rescued him, after barely escaping from Arkon and Warrior Woman, who revealed to be a traitor posing as Power Princess and captured the rest of the team. Thundra and Hyperion, who survived the fall with only a few wounds even without his powers, wandered aimlessly for a moment until they were saved from a group of Magma Men by Skull the Slayer. ⎙]

Skull explained that Doctor Druid was the one behind the mind control of all the inhabitants of Weirdworld. Doctor Spectrum, who was thought to be dead after exploding in light, revealed to be alive and aware of everything that happened while she was gone, reappearing in front of them. Actually her power prism was overloaded by the magic atmosphere of Weirdworld and needed to adapt, which was also the reason for Hyperion's sudden power loss. This motivated her to create an aura that would protect him from the magic around, granting a part of his powers back.

Recovered, Hyperion took another shot at fighting Arkon, this time with his powers restored. After Doctor Spectrum weakened the mind controlling crystal, Hyperion used his own strength as well as Arkon's to destroy the gem, shattering it to pieces and freeing everyone from Doctor Druid's spell. The Squadron Supreme was greeted by the Weirdworld's people, as Hyperion seemed to be confused about his team's forceful tactics. Finally, they went back home, with Thundra accompanying them as a new member. ⎚]

Back to Earth

Hyperion then went on a few missions with the other members of the Squadron Supreme, following Nighthawk's investigations of an alien scheme being put in place on Earth. According to Doctor Spectrum, the team worked well despite of the members' lack of common characteristics and the fact that both Hyperion and Nighthawk assumed they were the leader. Between missions, Hyperion became a truck driver just like he planned to. ⎛]

Upon his arrival at a diner on Fallon, Nevada, he met a waitress named Sally and her son from a strained previous relationship, Chris. ⎜]

The Carnies

Taking some more time away from the Squadron Supreme, Hyperion struggled with his identity and morale, questioning his place on Earth at the same time. The fact that he murdered people because of his team's ideals still haunted him, who feared falling into obscurity.

While at a truck stop in Merkel, Nebraska, he was approached by a teenage girl named Doll, who was adamant about getting a ride with him in his truck. Reluctantly, he accepted to take her somewhere far from there. While Doll was asleep, Hyperion found a gun in her purse and threw it away, claiming that he was no longer so sure that violence was the only way to solve problems.

In the middle of the road, he was stopped by a broken down car to see if the driver needed any assistance however, he was hit in the back of his head by a man that Doll recognized as Bennie, an employee of the Valentine County Carnival, the mobile group she was running from. After apparently being taken out, Hyperion attacked back using a tree branch as a bat to hit Bennie. While on the run, Doll explained to Marc that the people pursuing her were called "The Family", a team of individuals within the carnival that had special abilities.

As some members of the Family were getting closer to them, Doll asked Marc to do something other than driving away and revealed that she had been investigating him for a while after hearing some stories and knew that he was actually a hero. Marc however, keep denying, much to Doll's dismay, who started thinking she got the wrong guy. When Connie, a contortionist, grabbed Doll through the window of the truck, Marc used his Atomic Vision to save her and fled from the road flying, thus revealing his identity as Hyperion. After placing Doll in a safe place, he returned to where he last saw the carnies and attacked them with a tractor-trailer. ⎝]

Hyperion then engaged the fight with the carnies, but was defeated by Worm-Boy, and brought into the Haunted House as hostage. When Doll came to save him, she encountered a mysterious alien creature that had changed the carnies and tried to change her too, but she able was to resist it, after promising to free it from the Family. After recovering from injuries to his eyes, Hyperion then shot his Atomic Vision to the mirrors around him, all at once hurting his opponent. He then took Doll out of the Haunted House, while destroying the Carnival and killing Worm-Boy before they fled. ⎞]

After he brought Doll to a safe place, Hyperion met with Thundra who was looking for him. Hyperion explained that he needed time to be alone. Thundra told him that there was someone who survived after he destroyed the Carnival. Hyperion suspected that it was Junior and felt he would come for Doll again. He and Thundra decided to team up to look for Junior and stop him once and for all. He found the Strongman, one of Junior's men, in a bar and asked him where his boss was. Strongman said that Junior had set up an army to get Doll back meanwhile, Iron Man suddenly appeared at the motel where Hyperion and Doll were staying, and asked her where Hyperion was. ⎟]

Iron Man met with Hyperion and asked him to be put on trial for crimes that had been committed by the Squadron Supreme. Hyperion replied by throwing him out of the motel and both of them engaged in a fight. Iron Man managed to hold off Hyperion's attack until Thundra appeared and helped him. After a brief argument they agreed to put aside their problems and Marc asked for Iron Man to bring Doll to a safe place when Junior and his army appeared. Hyperion destroyed Junior's army and then discarded the rest of his body into space so that even if he survived he wouldn't be a threat anymore. ⎠]

After a superhuman civil war (which started due to Thanos' arrival on Earth) and a looming Chitauri invasion, the idea to build a Planetary Defense Shield came up, ⎡] and, after it was built, Hyperion was asked by Monica Rambeau to test it alongside other superheroes. ⎢]

Secret Empire

When the Chitauri invasion arrived, Hyperion was among the superheroes who prepared to hold the line while Iron Man and Ironheart fixed the malfunctioning Planetary Defense Shield. Meanwhile, it was revealed that the Shield's malfunctions were actually purposefully caused by an alternate Captain America, who used it as a distraction for his own operations. Rogers activated the Shield, leaving Hyperion and the rest of the heroes exiled in Earth's orbit while Hydra assumed control over the United States of America. ⎣]

Though Hyperion was seriously injured fighting the Chitauri onslaught, he recovered by the time that the Defense Shield was brought down by the new Quasar Avril Kincaid, allowing him to return to Earth. ⎤] Hyperion later joined the rest of America's superheroes in their final attack on Washington, D.C., hoping to end Hydra's occupation of the country. ⎥]

The History Behind AK Variants

The AK-47, (short for Avtomat Kalashnikova) is a gas-operated, 7.62×39mm caliber semi-automatic rifle, developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is the originating firearm of the Kalashnikov rifle (or "AK") family. Design work on the AK-47 began in 1945. The AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces in 1949 and later adopted by the majority of the member states of the Warsaw Pact. Over the past 70 years, the model and its variants remain the most popular and widely used semi-auto rifles in the world because of their substantial reliability under harsh conditions, low production costs, availability in virtually every geographic region, and ease of use.

The AK-74 is an adaptation of the AK-47, chambered in 5.45x39mm. The design was overseen by Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1974. The lighter rounds used by the AK-74 allow the operator to carry more ammunition, compared to the larger and heavier 7.62 cartridge. The AK-74 has a flatter trajectory and produces less recoil which promote better accuracy. The AK-74 continues to see use around the world in military, law enforcement, and civilian arenas today.

A few weeks prior to the publicly scheduled launch date, Hyperion is bombed by extremists from Homeward Sol. A shuttle docked directly above the SAM chamber may have been rigged with a plasma bomb which allowed the shuttle's hulk to melt through bulkheads and into the chamber. Alec Ryder, who was touring his prospective successor Cora Harper aboard the vessel at the time, manages to safe-store his SAM implementation into heat and fireproof containers although he sustains injuries in the process. Cora, with assistance from Jien Garson herself who manifests via hidden holoprojectors in case of emergencies and similar events, is able to secure Ryder and herself into a medbay for rescue later.

The damage inflicted to the SAM-Node is substantial, although SAM is able to function through alternative processors after he's put back in.

Prior to the bombing, Ryder muses the Initiative may have gotten more applicants had they been able to give people tours of the Hyperion. Constant security concerns scuttled that plan: Ryder received valid threats apart from the usual alien-conspiracy kooks claiming asari mind-control, turian vengeance for the First Contact War, or accusations of the Andromeda Initiative being a hoax done on an STG-run holovid stage.
