Straight from the interest forum comes Marvel Civil War: Legions


Back by popular demand, comes the next chapter in the Marvel Civil War RP series. This is Marvel Civil War: Legions, sequel to Marvel Civil War: Identity. If you have read the RP Identity, then your up to date with what the Marvel Civil war is, but for a quick reminder.

The New Warriors members (Night Thrasher, Namorita, Speedball, and Microbe) battle a group of villains (Cobalt Man, Speedfreek, Coldheart, Nitro) in Stamford, Connecticut while filming a reality television show. Nitro explodes, killing more than 600 people (including school children and all of the New Warriors except Speedball). The rest of the superheroes appear in Stamford to search for survivors.

Public opinion turns against superhumans. Even the inactive members of the New Warriors are branded as "baby killers". Hindsight Lad (desperate to distance himself from the team) releases their secret identities online, and several are attacked (The She-Hulk shuts down the site, and Hindsight Lad is arrested by John Jameson). Angry civilians attack the Human Torch outside of a club.

Guided by Iron Man, Congress quickly passes the Superhuman Registration Act [4] (SHRA), 6 U.S.C. ยง 558, requiring the registration of all persons with superhuman abilities with the U.S. government, and the enlistment and training of those wishing to operate as superheroes. The law applies to those with naturally-occurring superhuman abilities, those with abilities acquired through science or magic (including extraterrestrials and gods), and non-super powered humans using exotic technology, (such as Iron Man). Enactment of the federal law led to revisions of state criminal codes (such as Chapter 40, Article 120, Section 120 of the New York Penal Code, and Section 245(d) of the California Penal Code). [5]

Captain America refuses to join a S.H.I.E.L.D. strike force hunting superhumans in violation of the act, and is attacked by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s "Cape-Killers", even though the Act has not been passed yet. Afterwards, he becomes a fugitive and forms an underground resistance movement calling itself the "Secret Avengers". This team includes Hercules, Falcon, Danny Rand (who is acting as Daredevil),[6] Luke Cage and the Young Avengers.[7][6] Iron Man, Reed Richards, Henry Pym, and the She-Hulk come down in favor of the Act. Spider-Man unmasks at a press conference as a show of support for the Act.[6] Doctor Strange wants no part of the Act and tells Iron Man and Mister Fantastic that they are never to call on him again (The government declares Doctor Strange exempt from the Act).

The government-backed heroes track down unregistered superhumans and subsequently detain or register them. Captain America's Secret Avengers are public enemies. The Secret Avengers operate out of a series of secret safe houses set up by Nick Fury. Cap's team continues to apprehend supervillains (usually leaving them bound for the authorities), and launches a series of well-coordinated attacks on prison transports carrying captured superhumans. During one such raid, a convoy is diverted onto Yancy Street, a hotbed of civilian opposition to the Act. The Thing, who was only visiting the old neighborhood, gets roped into crowd control. However, when a young member of the Yancy Street Gang is killed in the violence that ensues, Grimm, disgusted with both sides, leaves the country for France.

The Secret Avengers, responding to a false emergency, are lured into an ambush by the pro-registration forces. As the battle turns against them, a new weapon is brought into play: Project Lightning, Thor (This is not actually Thor, but rather a cyborg clone created from a few strands of Thor's hair and empowered by a technological copy of Mjolnir). Confronted by Bill Foster, Thor sends a bolt of lightning through the hero's chest, killing him. With both sides in shock, Cap orders a retreat. Sue Storm shelters the re-grouping Secret Avengers under an energy shield, allowing their escape.

Bill Foster's death shakes up both sides: Stature and Nighthawk surrender and register, while the Human Torch and Invisible Woman oppose the act. In turn, Pym drafts a sub-group of the Thunderbolts to their cause.[8]

Spider-Man demands to see the concentration camp-styled prison facilities "42" in the Negative Zone [9]. He concludes that he has made a mistake by siding with Stark. Peter attempts to defect from Iron Man's side but is confronted by Iron Man and after a brief battle, Spider-Man escapes. Against Iron Man's will, he is hunted down and badly beaten by the Jester and Jack O'Lantern of the new Thunderbolts. The Punisher saves Spider-Man by killing the two villains, and carries him to a Secret Avengers safe-house. After recovering from his injuries, Spider-Man joins Cap's forces[8], and makes a public statement in which he pledges to fight the registration Act.

The Punisher seeks to join Captain America's forces, pointing out that Iron Man's decision to employ infamous mass murderers as enforcers of the Act is what has motivated the vigilante to come out of hiding, although crime is at an all time low as a result of the registered heroes. Captain America reluctantly accepts Punisher's offer of help.

As the Punisher makes his way through the Baxter Building to retrieve plans for the Negative Zone prison, Sue Richards travels to Atlantis to persuade Namor to join the Secret Avengers: he refuses. The supervillains Goldbug and Plunderer arrive at the Secret Avengers' base to join Captain America's team, but the Punisher immediately kills them, leading Captain America to attack him and kick him out of the group.

The Secret Avengers (along with Storm and Black Panther) break into the Negative Zone prison, where Hulkling, who has been disguised as Hank Pym, releases the imprisoned heroes from their cells to join the fight.[10]

While meditating, Doctor Strange speaks with Uatu the Watcher, who asks him why he doesn't use his immense power to end the conflict. Doctor Strange informs Uatu that the Sorcerer Supreme has no business in mankind's internal struggles, but promises to pray for an outcome that will benefit mankind and spill the least amount of blood.

As the final battle begins Cloak teleports the combatants to New York City, where Namor and an army of Atlanteans arrive to fight alongside the Secret Avengers; the Champions, the Thor clone, and Captain Marvel reinforce Stark's team. Mister Fantastic saves Invisible Woman from a bullet launched by Taskmaster, and Hercules destroys the Thor clone. The Thing returns to protect the citizens from harm of the battle. As Captain America is about to deliver a final blow to Iron Man, policemen, EMTs, and firefighters try to restrain him. Realizing how much damage the fight has already inflicted upon the very people he wishes to protect, Captain America surrenders and orders his team to stand down.

__________________________________________________________________________

The act has been established and the heroes have taken sides. Legions are being formed and war is on the brink. Both groups, pro and anti, are after the super gene (a mysterious hero who's powers are uncontrollably dangerous) If the hero is in one's hands then that Legion would win the battle. You will create a hero or if you were previously in Identity, take your character into the act a year after the introduction.

I'm just going to put this here in the hopes that it will spur me to actually join, lol.

Haven't been able to decide whether to stick with Antje or not, and if I do, whether to have had her stay with S.H.I.E.L.D. but help out the resistance, or just leave completely...






-Human-

Name: Antje MacLeod (probable alias)

Age: 28

Height: 5'10

Description: with long pale blonde hair, tall and statuesque, Antje is striking and charismatic. She is clearly athletic and at peak physical fitness. Off-duty (rare these days) dresses quite reservedly, quite 'Euro-chic'- well tailored clothes, tasteful boots etc. On-duty form fitting head to toe black super-light full body armour suit. Some bullet-shielding built in around the vitals, but mainly provides resistance to the elements and some impact cushioning. Material used is also to some degree flame-retardant (would not survive a sustained burst), and masks heat signature. As she is physically quite memorable suit for the ops she's involved in typically includes complete head mask.

Occupation: S.H.I.E.L.D operative (e.g. supa-spy, lol)



-Hero-

Hero name: Mata Hari (though not a superhero per se.. so more a code name)

Powers:
naturally intelligent and adaptable Antje perfectly fit the typical spy profile and was recruited as a S.H.I.E.L.D. operative. Shortly into her training she volunteered for the continued and on-going super-soldier serum programme that tries vainly to recreate the experiment that led to Captain America's genesis.
Party to one of the more successful trials Antje gained benefits that, while useful and relatively impressive, were disappointing given the aims of the project: strength, speed, reaction times all increased but not to the extent where they would be considered super-human (X-men encyclopedia in its power ratings lists 'peak-human' as being able to lift twice own body weight, 'super-human' as lifting 800lbs- she'd be between the two); senses are all heightened to a significant extent so that, as well as the obvious, she has become very adept at reading minute changes in people's expressions/postures/body language/nervous system response (pupil dilation for example) to not only become, effectively, a human lie detector, but also in many cases being able to anticipate their reactions etc. (in favourable- i.e. quiet, lol- conditions could even perceive changes in heart rate, blood flow). This is obviously a benefit in combat. Immediately after the experiment his ability also initially lead her to be briefly assigned to S.H.I.E.L.D's Psi Ops division as it was mistaken for being a triggered latent empathic power. Her considerable charm is not a result of the experiment- it's all her own

Weaknesses:
really not a front line combatant- more suited to espionage and information gathering, Antje could not take on a conventional 'powered' superhero without backup (i.e. the more 'just' physically enhanced type like DD she would probably hold her own, but any of the ones with large elemental-type powers she'd be fairly scre-ewed w/out S.H.I.E.L.D/Stark industries techno assistance unless she got the drop on them). Is also hampered by her patriotism being quite letter-of-the-law: will not go against or refuse a direct order from above, is willing to see personal freedoms be sacrificed for the needs of the majority.
note: this changed somewhat over the course of Identity as aggression and mistreatment of anti-registration supporters increased, although she still does believe in the principles behind the Act.

Bio:
Grew up in the midst of a loving Dutch family in Middle America, having an uneventful and typical adolescence. When approached by S.H.I.E.L.D. jumped at the chance, being strongly patriotic (and a bit of a Fury fangirl.. ). This fervour also led to her volunteering for the super-soldier project. Was involved in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s more highly covert operations at some time, but only peripherally in the Secret War. Although she took the resulting condemnation and expulsion of Fury hard personally, her first loyalties are to S.H.I.E.L.D, and she supported the S.H.R.A. that led to the 'civil war'- those with power have a reponsibility to use it, and that should be in a controlled way. Was genuinely perplexed by the resulting chaos- in her eyes active superheroes are in essence just overpowered and uncontrolled covert agents.

Here it is! My character sheet!

Name: Solomon Attus

Description: A young fellow of an average height, and thin build. His long, straight dark hair hangs about his waist like a veil of dark silk. His eyes are a deep green like that of leaves under night's shade. His cheekbones are high and his cheeks themselves seem hollow and torn about his thin, cold lips. His flesh is pale and ridden with blemishes and unhealing wounds. His seemingly fragile body is clothed by a pair of black leather pants and an equally black pair of rugged old boots. A faded black leather jacket full of stitches and holes, hangs of his slacken shoulders, it lays open across his bare, bleeding torso and it's high collar is torn apart so that it frays out like some filthy leather mane.

Occupation: Homeless and unemployed.

Hero-

Hero Name: The Wretch

Powers: Upon contact with any organic substance which is currently animated, the substance will begin to decay, if contact is prolonged then the decay will spread throughout the rest of that particular organic mass from the afflicted area. His blood and all other body fluids also have the same effect on organic material they come into contact with. This power is limited only to organic material. He can animate dead material with his blood (only his blood), however it will loose it's animated properties in a matter of minutes after reanimation. He may also control the amount of blood that he can produce at any given time and can also grow new veins and arteries so as to redirect blood to and from his heart making it highly difficult to die of blood-loss.

Weaknesses: He heals ten times slower than normal and is constantly afflicted with a strange disease that causes him to cough up great amounts of black phlegm at random intervals. Salt will cause his flesh to deteriorate at an immense speed. He looses his eyesight during daylight hours and can only see after nightfall. His powers cannot be turned off and thus has a sort of "Midas Touch".

Background: Solomon has had a relatively normal life up until his 13th birthday when a terrible curse laid up his family over 200 years ago reawakens for the first time in 100 years. The origins of this strange curse are a mystery to both himself and even his now deceased family members. On this horrid day he was driven mad by the carnage his new powers wrought on his family members, their deaths caused by his own hands, he was ridden with guilt and in this guilt he swore an oath unto himself, that he would never become responsible for the death of another whom he loved and thus has become a self-made outcast, trying his best to remain as far from humanity as humanly possible. However in recent years he has returned to civilization with a new goal in mind, he would
discover the source of his curse and rid himself of his wretched burden, he searched the world for answers and instead he found something far worse than anything he could have possibly imagined. He discovered that his curse was the fault of his desperate great great grandfather, whom had tried to bring his deceased wife back to life using a deadly magic which brought him not only his wife but also a terrible price, never again could he feel the softness of her flesh, never again could he taste her lips or feel her heartbeat against his, and this same curse was also to find its way to his next descendant to be born on his birthday on their 13th year. His ancestor also brought death upon those he loved in a failed attempt to beat the curse and he even took his own life to end his terrible pain. This gave Solomon a new purpose in life-to see to it that no one would ever be separated from their loved ones again. This has given him the title of the Wretch, he who would watch over the those whom loved and were loved, he has devoted his life to destroying those who would break the hearts of others and has lead a life of despair and death ever since.

Name: Christian Michaels

Age: 21

Height: 6'0

Description: Black Hair cut into a short mohawk, soft blue eyes, skin somewhat tanned with burn marks that are visible along his arms and chest. Usually wears sleeveless shirts, jeans, work boots, and fingerless biker gloves. All clothing was provided by the Xavier Institute and made from unstable molecules so powers don't thrash them.

Occupation: College Student

-Hero-

Hero Name: Burst

Powers: Body generates and stores radioactive energy. Burst can channel this energy to allow him flight, concussive blasts and super strength. Body has heightened durability in order to resist the destructive potential of its own power.

Weaknesses: Use of powers is sometimes unpredictable and dangerous. When in use Burst's powers cause the temperature around him to steadily increase. Due to the steady build of energy he can become dangerous to those around him as his energy level causes him to release increasingly more dangerous amounts of radiation. When this occurs he must discharge the excess amount or risk losing control and blowing up.

Bio: Christian Michaels gained his power the old fashioned way. He was born a mutant. When he was 12 his powers began to manifest and at first everything was fine as the radiation emitted from his body was in such small amounts that it had no adverse effects on those around him. In fact nobody even knew he was a mutant. Slowly however his energy levels built up and once past the level he could safely contain Christian's family started to suffer from radiation sickness. For some time the doctors where unable to determine the cause. It wasn't until Chris's mother died that they realized he was a mutant and in fact the cause of her death.

Arrested at first Chris was eventually transfered to Xavier's in order to learn control of his powers. Despite spending several years day he kept others at bay, his fear of causing others harm with his power always a present thought on his mind.

Once he managed to master his powers to some degeree he decided to leave the institute. Except for when he need to discharge the excess of build of energy Burst rarely if ever used his mutant abilities. However one night in Los Angeles while returning home from campus he came across a fight between the Avengers and the Wrecking Crew. Seeing that Earth's Mightiest Heroes where being overpowered the young mutant lent a hand.

After that Chris found himself using his powers more and more as he began going on patrol and helping protect those in need. As far as the issue of registration he has yet to choose a side. If anyone knows the important of training and control it is this young mutant, however if anyone knows what it feels like to be persecuted simply for being it is Chris as well. Despite his best efforts to remain apart from the oncoming tension between the factions he knows that sooner or later he will have to choose.

I hope this is okay...(gulp)

-Human-

Name: Tyler Haines

Age: 20

Height: 6ft 2in

Description: With a very solid, dark haired, brown eyed and smooth polynesian features from his mother's side and a slightly squared jaw from his European fathers side. Tyler is a very passive individual. Socially open to everyone and anyone, always offering advice where he can. Loves his music and movies, has an uncanny sense of humour to go with his infectious smile. Always dressed as casual, yet presentable as possible. Never a day he isn't seen without his steel blue sunglasses.

Occupation: Super Human Aid & Recovery Program (S.H.A.R.P.) Operative, used only in the capacity to locate and befriend possible superhumans who are between the ages of 17-24 mainly mutants. To encourage them to register and re-iterate the legal and social complications of not registering. S.H.A.R.P. make sure they send him to areas with low risk of storm readings.

-Hero-

Code Name: SURGE

Powers: Very rarely does Tyler ever uses his powers, it's more than a last resort than a neccessity. Receiving his true power when a storm is happening with the manupilation of thunder and lightning, the superhuman strength recieved from the rain. If he wanted too, he can hone in his abilties more and sense the nearest storm to either avoid it or to get his fix. A simple solitary raindrop acts like an adrenaline shot with each drop that he feels he becomes stronger and stronger becoming superhuman. In close proximity, uses the Clap of Thunder, as a sonic blast with mild concussive or temporary deafening capabilities. Projects lightning bolts as weak as a minor static electricity to the full wrath of lightning which has the full potential to be as strong as a billion volts with temperatures as high as 54,000 degrees Fahrenheit. While traveling the skies via a lightning stream which he grapples like a rope.

Weaknesses: When he senses a storm within 10miles his temptations are hard to fight, like an addiction for Tyler, he needs that fix. Tyler however can not summon a storm, he must wait for one if he needs his abilities and when the storm is over his strength and powers remain with him for 24hours. Once that 24hour period is over Tyler will lose his superpowers and then he must sleep for 48hours to recondition his human body before he encounters the next storm or else his body will not be conditoned enough to with hold another surge of a storm.

Bio: Never knowing his father; Tyler and his mother left their home of Hawaii and were always travelling from state to state. As Tyler's mother knew of his powers before he was even born, she knew what happens whenever a storm was near. So she kept him away from any storms until he was old enough to control and understand. And through his fathers early contacts with the U.S. Goverment became an operative for S.H.A.R.P. leaving his mother return back to Hawaii. To this day, Tyler only knows that his newly acquired responsibilty had something to do with his father before he mysteriously died when he was very young. Hopefully joining this goverment initiative he will find out more of the truth.

-Human-

Name: Chris Johnson

Age: 17

Height: 6'0"

Description: The kid everybody picks on, the nerd with glasses. When in the weight room with the other kids for gym class he can only lift small amounts of weight(squat 120, bench 45). Tall and lanky no one ever really sees much potential in him for anything other than video games, but amazingly whenever they play sports in gym class he, contrary to his physique, never seems to receive any intense injuries. Typically wears the clothes that are out of fashion and is never popular with anyone, especially the girls.

Occupation: student

-Hero-

Hero Name: Sledgehammer

Powers: body as hard as steel

Weaknesses: intaking anything that reduces calcium

Bio (How said one obtained his/her powers and other bio facts): Unknowingly Chris was born with a strange gene that allowed his body to store massive amounts of calcium, making his bones much stronger than a normal person and possessing a blood born factor that increases the stress his muscles can take giving him an immense amount of strength that he wisely hides from the kids at school. He discovered this trait fairly early on when an accident caused a falling timber to land on his back. For a normal person this would have rendered them paralyzed if not killed, however Chris was able to lift himself in a push up position and the timber rolled off his back. Deciding for appearances sake to visit the hospital afterwards, an x-ray showed that none of his bones were broken and a physical examination proved that the bruises he received were already dissapating(seemingly from the amount of stress his muscles can withstand without tearing). He felt this was more than luck and decided to keep it to himself.

Nice idea Shig but I have- of course, lol- a few... suggestions.



blood-carried gene


Genes wouldn't be 'carried' in the blood (they'd be in every cell that contains DNA)- so maybe 'born with a gene that produced a factor carried in the blood', [i]but[/i] even if it was carried in the blood that wouldn't really affect the structure of the bones... so you're probably better off saying 'born with a gene that allowed his body to store calcium' yada.

Also, storing calcium wouldn't [i]really[/i] affect the stress-taking capabilities of his muscles... and having strong bones would only mean he could [i]support[/i] weight (in an ideal position), not lift it, so you might need to come up with something else to explain the strength.



he received were already dissapating.


Again, wouldn't be affected by strong bones.

Shigetomo

I'll think of a few changes then

nfrat33
08/13/2007 8:08 AM

Here is my character sheet by the way, with a few changes. By now, MAxis is fully formed demon and cannot change his appearance. He looks like black heart but a lot smaller in size and shorter dreadlocks. His upper body is mostly human form with normal hands and body mass, but his lower half is mostly demonic. His feet are long with three paw toes and he has a tail.



-Human-

Name: Louis Maxim

Age: 24

Height: 6'0

Description: Louis is short and stocky. He is highly active and in shape. His slick, jet black hair proves that he is another "greasy" Italian. A big ladies man, the ladies are attracted to his charm and good looks. You can see him smirking a lot; he is a big smartass.

Occupation: Lamborghini salesman

Bio: Louis was a boxer and has had many strong foes. Marc Spector was one of his boxing arch-rivals. Louis was once a serious person, before his parents died. Since then he has been a smartass drunk who is struggling with his life.

-Hero-

Hero Name: Maxis

Powers: Maxis has similar attributes to nightcrawler. He can teleport just like Kurt, and has 10x the aerobic mastery than him. He has learned the art of Spartan fighting and is known as the Dark Spartan in Greece. His form is not permanernt, unlike nightcrawler's. Louis can transform into the shadow creature whenever he pleases. The differences in characteristics are some what different. His eyes glow red, and his whole body has red smoke around it, his tail has no point at the end, and he is taller and not hunched.

Weaknesses: Teleporting too much can drain some of his powers, which forces him to recharge. Too much light can also drain his powers and cause him to become weaker.

Bio: When Louis was nineteen, his parents were murdered. The killers were never found and Louis felt unsafe in America. After the funeral he moved to Greece to live with his family. They brought him in, but he was never happy. One day he ventured out to Sparta. While traveling, he found an old coliseum. He ventured inside to find a Spartan practicing in the fields. Curious, Louis walked down. The Spartan knew everything about him; he took Louis in and trained him the way of the Spartan. On the last night of training, the skies were dark. The Spartan told him of a secret, his eyes glowed red. The Spartan told him he was a demon; the demon went into Louis body and died inside, giving him his powers. Rain poured down and Louis was in pain. The demon inside Louis was awoken and he became Maxis.

I <3 the Civil War series, here is my character:

-Human-

Name: Dez (Desmond) Graves

Age: 19

Height: 6'0"

Description: Dez [i]is[/i] punk rock. Nose, multiple ear, and lip rings, slimey green mohawk, and all the chains, leather jackets, ripped jeans and old band T-shirts to go along with it. Dez has a number of tattoos, the most imposing of which is the words NEVER AGAIN tattoo'd across his adam's apple. He is relatively skinny and would be pretty good looking, if not for all the hair dye and piercings. Lately, Dez has slowly become dependant on Speed and other uppers, usually needing to pop a pill in the late afternoon.

Occupation: Bassist, Local band called: "Terror Amerika"

-Hero-

Hero Name: Point Blank

Powers: Dez is fast. Not just faster than your average track star, Dez is faster than your average jet fighter. Dez can sustain running speeds, up to Mach 1, and sprint at Mach 4, these speeds are reached within a stride or two, and can be stopped or change direction amost instantaneously. Dez isn't much in a slugfest, but he can dodge almost anything, he imagines that he could dodge a bullet point blank, but doesn't dare try it. He is fast enough to run on water, without breaking surface tension, but manuevering on the water is fairly limited, as slowing down isn't really an option. When Dez breaks the sound barrier, the natural sonic boom that occurs can be used as a weapon/distraction, especially to those sensetive to sound. While Dez can run at extreme speed, the power in his legs doesn't have any "Torque" to it, so he cannot push or pull any more than the average 19 year old.

Weaknesses: Dez's addiction to Speed and other upper pills serve as his primary "weakness".

Bio (How said one obtained his/her powers and other bio facts): Dez's father left when he was 12. Not a word to his mother, or him, just one evening, he never came back from work. When Dez's mother died, it was the evening of his 18th birthday, leaving him alone in the world, and horribly in debt. His mother died in a drive-by shooting of a nearby gang, which resulted in Dez's harbored hatred for all organized crime. When his mother died, Dez ran. He ran as far away as he could, as fast as he could. His powers erupted from that event like a bat out of hell, and he hasn't been the same ever since.

Hey can i join in on the fun. I'll make a character here for now.

-Human-

Name: Chris kornac

Age: 21

Height: 6'0"

Description: dark hair, blue eyed, light skined and has a small scar above his eyebrow. He has a more dark personality and listens to his hard rock and metal music almost always. He is somewhat social but otherwise will keep to himself. He dresses in blue jeans and has some kind of hoodie on.

occupation: cashier at the music store called HARD TRACKS.

-hero-

code name: Thought

powers: Ever since birth Chris has been able to create things out of his own will. Although he has never made any living objects or beings, he has been able to form fire at will then douse it with water when there is none around. He only uses his powers in self defense, or to amuse himself occasionally

weakness: Chris can get a little hot headed sometimes and has even blacked out when in extreme rage. when this occurs he usually gets careless or does something he never meant to do. for example when he blacks out, normally when he finally comes back he is surrounded by some form of destruction he had no intention of doing. he also sometimes makes mistakes when fighting and lets his guard down when brought into a rage.

bio: Chris was born and grew up in detroit. He decided to spread out and travel for a while after high school and looked for a city that met his needs. However this ended when the registration act was made and Captain America fought against it. He didn't like the registration act because then the people around him would know about his powers and Chris didn't want the extra attention from others. he's kept his power usage to a new low and has avoided being registered ever since.


So may i join?

Hero Name: Plague (White with lime green symbiote)
Powers: While working for Dr.Conners he accidentially freed a symbiote from a rock formation he was studying..The symbiote instantly bonded with Clark and he has since been torn between doing whats right and wrong..He constantly disguises his powers.. He has the ablility to assume an identity and can climb walls..He also has the ability to form web like symbiotic strands that can attach to other objects. He also has a weak camoflauge ability which only works while the symbiote is in complete control..

Weaknesses:
While his symbiote is resistant to sound atleast better resistant to sound than Venom or Carnage..He is constantly at conflict with the symbiote..He refers to the symbiote as a nuisance, and does not call himself "We".. While he has 25 more times the strength of spider-man.. Controlling the symbiote is not easy for him..The symbiotes gender is female.. Other symbiote weaknesses apply.. While she isnt in control and fights for control..She often voices her opinion into Clark's mind..Alot of the time it looks as if Clark is talking to himself..


Current Affliation:
Clark now finds himself completely pro reg, and fights alongside Iron Man his former employer has taken him under his wing, and uses him as leverage over Venom. Who considers Plague to be somewhat of a sibling. (Venom in my mind might be pro reg, but if Stark had more leverage over Venom it would serve many purposes.)

Although he has never made any living objects or beings, he has been able to form fire at will then douse it with water when there is none around


That Reads To Me As Having The Potential To Be Very Overpowered, And Would Be Better If There Was Some Kind Of Limit On It.

It's nfrat's gig, of course, so final say is his.


i see what you mean. but I saw it as my Guy could create and not manipulate.

Yeah, but create to what scale, lol?

[i]Especially[/i] if he can't Manipulate- it's far more likely to be on a Bigger, More destructive scale (and you've already mentioned in his 'weakness' that he wakes up surrounded by destruction, so it's clearly something he's capable of).

Being incapable of control is not a weakness, it is dangerous and in no way makes him weaker, it just makes him volatile and overpowered. Also considering that creation is a mind-blowing power, if he can create matter then he could with time and practice create anything. The whole idea behind using creation as a power is nothing short of a means to play an overpowered character. This is a god-like power and it wouldn't make sense for a mere mortal to have it in the first place. There's just to much potential in something like that.

as seen in 'House of M'...

Uh, no.

You can't manipulate if there's nothing there. Creation comes first.

And in the Marvel universe there is a distinction between the two, c.f. Pyro (can manipulate but not create fire) etc.

'House of M'

Umm sorry but I don't understand your reference. Could you enlighten me? Is this a movie or something? (I hate it when this happens... I always end up looking like an ass :p)

House of M is another Marvel comic book series revolving around Xavier's house of mutants. Mostly the X-men and mutnetic genes.

Oh... ok I understand. I have to catch up on my Marvel stuff... I'm more of a Spawn guy.

The specific reference being that in House of M a mutant, Scarlet Witch, has the power to [i]manipulate[/i] reality (in a basic sense) which had a huge and drastic effect- resulting ultimately in a massive reduction in the number of mutants left on (normal Marvel) Earth.

As of right now, Storm, Beast, Wolverine are at the mansion. Cyclops is in Boston, which I'm setting up for a later post, and Emma Frost is somewhere, I just won't tell where yet =P

The man looked at Louis as if he was a side show freak, but the prideful Greek ignored the rude expression.



That kind of thing, forcing emotions/reactions on a character that isn't yours, is the same thing as 'bunnying', nfrat- you can't assume that he hasn't seen anything even freakier and wouldn't be phased by Maxis' appearance.

I would like to join in, if I am allowed to.

Here's my char:


-Human-

Name: Jake Mitchell

Age: 22

Height: 6'6"

Description: Jake is a tall man with a slighty muscular build. He has long, black hair, dark brown eyes, and a smile that can tell everyone of his emotions. Normally, he wears either a black-hooded sweatshirt or a long, black trenchcoat with his all-black attire.

Occupation: College Student



-Hero-

Hero Name: Fulfiller

Powers: Powerful, dark shadows now come out at Jake's body and will, not only to protect him from any harm, but to instill him with enhanced strength and speed. They also give him the use of elemental energy as well as the power to take any of his shadows and create a weapon from it.

Weaknesses: Strong light and anything that has been blessed with holiness.

Bio: Jake's a young man from Missouri who is virtually dark from the inside. The color of black was his choice ever since he was a young boy, creating mischief and mayhem wherever he went. The only true thing that his parents worry about was that he enjoyed creating all of the chaos that he did, as if it brought him pure satisfaction.

While in college, Jake participated in a Halloween seance with his friends that went horribly wrong. In drawing a pentagram, the group wanted to channel the spirited shadows from the dead and beyond. They were successful, but the shadows of the dead didn't like being summoned by humanity. The shadows summoned their own powers and kill the group off, but Jake, who was already dark-hearted in his nature, was the only one that was spared. After the massacre, the shadows wanted Jake to inherit their powers by entering his body and using it as a vessel to unleash their wrath. With a newfound sense of purpose, Jake agreed to the terms.

To be honest, the bunnying and X-Men name dropping was kind of leaving me uninspired.
I haven't dropped out yet but just couldn't really come up with anything to post- especially as we don't really have a storyline, [i]per se[/i]/

Well Nanuk, I'm trying to set up a foothold, and you have to remember it is free form to an extent. You can free form for now, but once I make that large connection, you can assume a major plot.

Dooms day ur good to join btw.

Everything is free form in the Free Form Forum so please don't patronise me- that doesn't mean there can't be a basic storyline/aim to work towards.

Right now you're in Westchester about to head to Boston, I'm in New York with no need/inclination to leave so it would be [i]helpful[/i] to have at least an outline of a story so that I could try to think of a reason to leave.

TheCritch
09/01/2007 8:20 AM

Yeah... I haven't really been all that inspired by this thread at all lately... I've been having regular writer's block anyway but this is bordering on boredom... I've been waiting for something to pop up that might stir my interest but this story isn't going anywhere... I guess I sound kind of bitchy right now... Don't I? But quite frankly I really don't know how else I can explain myself...THIS IS BORING! I need some kind of stimulus as I am rather strained for motivation as it is. So either show me a story or I'm probably gone to pull out. Sorry for being so abrasive!
