USS North Carolina Lost with All Hands Aboard
The Virginia Class submarine was returning from its shake down cruise and stopped to assist the Event Rift Research Platform which had been without contact for several days, when it encountered trouble. A Navy spokesperson said the sub reported encountering a superhuman traveling at over 100 knots that passed the sub, the sub followed the superhuman into the rift and disappeared shortly thereafter. An emergency buoy was floated with the North Carolina's last known whereabouts and the Navy sent a rescue mission using the superhero team the Immortals. Sadly, they failed to find the submarine as well. The Navy has said it will try other means to locate the vessel, but stressed that the rift was thousands of meters deep, and even if they found the sub, it was unlikely the crew could have survived.
