Imp 7: Imp-ervious to Reason, is the story of the beginning of the fight against the Triangle and (possibly) the end of the fight against the Imp Revenge Squad and also where Roland Williams receives his just rewards. It is by Morpheus and was released in five parts, from 2018-07-03 to 2018-08-21. The story runs from 2007-11-09 to 2007-11-22. It is preceeded by Imp 6: A Very Imp-ortant Date and followed by Imp 8: Imp-rints on an Aching Heart.
Imp is checking out the neighborhood and notices a group of Whateley students, which includes Aegis. Then Ryan and Melissa arrive. They have lunch and discuss some personal business. As they leave, they hear a disturbance around the corner. A villain is doing a smash-and-grab. Aegis runs in to stop him. Imp drops her disguise and intervenes to get Aegis out of danger, Then the Lamplighter arrives. Imp leads him on a bit of a chase and loses him.
After lunch, Imp heads back to the Village. Geist tries to tail her, and Imp has a little fun. She goes to the Brown Moose Café to work on lesson plans. Unfortunately, Barney is there. She starts taunting him, when Louis Geintz arrives, giving Imp, a summons from Mrs. Carson.
The summons appears to be from Ryan, who was called in because a villain called Fiddleback had kidnapped a busload of kids, one of whom was a future Whateley student. Superhawk wants to hire her to get the kids out before the heroes attack.
The Imp Revenge Squad discusses how to deal with the Imp.
Imp gets the hostages to safety while the Shielders take down Fiddleback and his organization. There is a problem. There are only 10 hostages, while 17 kids got taken. A couple of Fiddleback’s people talk, so there appear to be two leads. Six of the kids went one way, while one of them went another. He’s the one Imp is interested in. There’s a very slim lead. They decide that Brandywine will go with the Imp to check it out.
Imp and Brandywine arrive at the Silver Lining, a popular nightclub where civilians and villains mix. They go into the back room to talk to Focus about the Triangle. They get a lead to a villain called the Pooka. Brandywine knows him.
While checking out the Triangle’s base, STAR League arrives. Imp and Tabby Cat go in to rescue Jerome while Brandywine and the rest of STAR League attack the Triangle’s base. In the confusion, the devisor who was making an improved mutant detector is killed.
Imp attends the debrief at the Shielder’s headquarters.
The Imp Revenge Squad attacks. Much fun was had by the Imp.
Roland Williams is drowning his conscience in the Flying Blue Squirrel, and decides to call the Boston heroes in on the fight.
The Imp leads the IRS in a fight through a department store. She loses them, only to be attacked by the Boston superheroes, with the Lamplighter in the lead. She fakes them into fighting the IRS.
Imp sits on a ledge, looking down on Barney and contemplating how big an anvil to drop on his head when Louis Geintz appears. Louis asks her to be a bit cautious. Then Roland sees them, so they drop down. Imp and Roland scream at each other a bit until Elizabeth Carson drops in. They agree to settle their differences in a sim match.
In the early hours of the morning, Imp takes her revenge on the Imp Revenge Squad. It involves a shave, super-duper glue, lots of feathers and some laxative, among other things.
