Heroes: The Fall

((Well, I think it's time that we get another Superhero rp going. Been awhile since I've seen an active one. Just for the record, this was posted on another site so if you see it there, don't worry, the Rp is my creation. This is set in a universe where the majority of the heroes were killed off by a massive alliance of villians. It's basiclly an Old Man Logan Rp.))

It's been nearly sixty years since the majority of the Heroes of the world were wiped out by a vast alliance of Villians who stood united in their hatred of the superheroes who had stopped them time and time again. The few who weren't killed have long ago given up on their beliefs and have gone into hiding among the non-superhero population. Others took their own lives after seeing the horror that their inability to stop brought upon the world. A few who have now been branded as traitors switched sides and became Villians and Warlords fighting over what little land the true villians have left untouched as they struggle to gain power amongst themselves. The villians for all intents and purpose have finally won.

But wherever there are villians, there will always be those willing to rise against them. Among evil and corruption there will always be those who feel the urge to do what's right. There will always be those who have special gifts who feel the need to use them for the greater good.

There will always be heroes.

History: It is said that after Thor was killed during the night the heroes were massacred, his hammer was left where Thor had fallen as a message to those who would try to fight the villians of the world. Over time, people came to the hammer and some began to pray to it, hoping that the heroes would return. Amy was being chased by a group of thugs and she came across the hammer. At the time, Amy was defensless and the only thing within reach was the fabled hammer of the fallen Thor. As her hand gripped the handle of the hammer, a voice echoed through her mind.

"Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor."It was at this point that for the first time in nearly thirty years that the hammer was lifted from the ground and the thugs turned and ran. It took a few days, but eventually Amy learned to use the power of Mjolnir and months later she managed to use the full power of Mjolnir while training in secret. Now, after months of training to use the hammer and her newfound super abilities that she emerged. Ready to fight.

Well, I have to jump in somehow XD

Name: Curtiss Theodore (Teddy) Bentley

Hero Name: The Postman; Grey Man; Lynch; Specialist Bentley; 'man in the suit' (not technically hero names, rather, these are names attributed to rumors and eye witness reports)

Age: 32

Gender: Male

Appearance: Curtiss stands tall at 6 ft, 3 inches, with relatively Germanic features (cleft chin, defined higher cheekbones, noticeable clavicles), black hair with premature graying edges. Very sharply contrasted greyish-blue eyes. Relatively slight build, cannot be more than average weight and mass for a 30-year-old male. Has only 3 fingers on his left hand, other 2 presumably removed (whether by surgery or by other means unknown to case file provided). For photo reference of appearance. Forgive Jim Caviezel.

Personality: Curtiss is the quieter type. He refuses to state more than he must or more than he feels comfortable revealing. However, this habit changes when attempting to manipulate others or gain information, creating a chameleon-like persona allowing him to flow easily into conversation, should it be to his purposes. For the most part, he can be described as apathetic or passive, refusing to take sides in the issues of 'super' heroes and villains. This split may be attributed to a plausibly traumatic experience or mental conditioning to an extreme. Appreciates loyalty...but is not driven to show any himself. Psychological evaluation would peg him as closer to being a sociopath than any form of guardian...yet, such reports are at times inaccurate.

Powers: Curtiss' powers are completely unlike the physical attributes common to the pre-purge 'super' heroes. He has an ability to completely empathize and envision the unique perspectives of those around him. It can be described as a mind meld of sorts triggered by at least 1.5 minutes of sustained conversation. Once this limit has been reached, Curtiss has proven to be able to sustain the other person's point-of-view permanently, allowing him to predict their every move, motive, and weakness. Absolute empathy may have no physical culmination of power, but Curtiss has found other ways to utilize it.

Affiliation: Neutral

Skills: Other than his attributed power, Curtiss possesses basic field knowledge common to agents who have been associated with old world agencies like the CIA and KGB. He also has a basic knowledge of technology and its fallbacks alongside unarmed combat expertise, survival training, and an uncanny knowledge for remembering every detail gained from those he comes in contact with. His perfect empathy allows for him to remember basic conversational details. This, alongside a photographic memory, makes him a prime investigator.

History: Curtiss' history is an incomplete file, but what can be garnered from international data collected on his particular name suggests that at one point he lived a fairly average life working as a public servant. Though there are large gaps in this data, it became very clear that he was neither against superheroes nor for them, as he reportedly assisted in the initial Purge which was instigated by the Villain's Coalition several years back. Remaining under the radar, Curtiss performed multiple odd jobs for these Coalitions before settling a contract with The Bureau, a newly formed organization meant for the express purpose of maintaining order on an international scale whilst keeping tabs on possible sightings of supernatural, extra-terrestrial, or superhuman behaviour. After several years of prime investigative work and a total of 56 completed cases to his name, he was promoted multiple times until gaining the office of Executive Officer in The Bureau (he is one of three XOs who hold the secondary office answering directly to the Director of the agency). From here, the case file goes cold as more information will be collected and modified.

Currently, Curtiss, as the 3rd XO of the Bureau, oversees Regions 1-25, a broken affiliation of nations spread from the Northeast Continental United States, Central America, and Northeast Asia (China, Korea, Japan). His influence is far reaching as demonstrated by the envoys he has managed to maintain within the majority of Criminal Coalitions in these areas (including the Sinister Empire). While not friendly with these Coalitions, Curtiss realizes that there is a desperate need for skills that the Agency possesses; these attributes ranging from information brokering to selective 'disappearances.' As such, he has far from failed in doing business with the super-villains-turned-warlords and has made a pretty profit. Contrary to Agency policy, however, he has denied quarterly psychological evaluations and has greatly isolated himself from the other 2 XOs occupying the remaining 75 Regions of Earth. This has strained his relations with the Director and increased business tensions with a multitude of the Villain Coalitions.

Equipment: Garrote and stiletto blade


you very much

Name: Curtis Thane
Hero Name: Mr. Crowley
Age: 35
Gender: Male
Appearance: A tall man at 6' 1" and 230 lb. He has sharp cheekbones and a relatively slim face. Ice blue eyes, and short black-brown hair. He wears a shady black fedora-esque hat, black Oakley Fuel Cell sunglasses, and an unsettling bone mask. Commonly wears bulletproof combat armor under a dark trenchcoat.
Personality: Enigmatic, cunning, manipulative, perceptive. Cares nothing for morals, only logic.
Powers: He has the ability to telepathically speak to people. As such, he is able to enter people's minds, able to forcefully rip out information, at the cost of severe migraines to the victim. He is also able to subtly persuade weaker-minded people to agree with him. He also has strength and endurance well beyond the average human.
Skills: Other than his neural powers, he is a skilled martial artist - having trained for over 20 years. He has a very unbreakable poker face, and has a 'sixth sense' that warns him when danger is approaching.
History: An enigmatic man, very little is known about him. What is known about him is that he allies with the side he could benefit from. As such, he is known to bounce back and forth between the two factions periodically.
Affiliation: Neutral Evil
Equipment: HUD built into sunglasses, .50 Caliber Desert Eagle, serrated combat knife, various grenades.

I hope this is not too ambitious. Asia was, to my recollection, ignored in the original Old Man Logan so this should all fit.

Name: Mia Ko

Hero Name: Conduit

Age: 27

Gender: Female

Appearance: Short, black hair. She's of Korean descent, at least on her mother's half, so her facial features would follow. Nothing abnormal. She is in very good shape but is perhaps a little undernourished.

Personality: Mia was raised on the run, and has become what you would expect as a result. She is suspicious of strangers and reluctant to stay in one place. She is slow to trust and will never forgive betrayal. But her trust, once earned, is great. She’s not one to joke.

Powers: Conduit has the power to manipulate and redirect raw energy. She cannot pull power from nowhere. With the current levels she operates at, her power source needs to be densely charged and within reasonable proximity. She could pull the charge from a battery, but couldn’t remove all the heat from a room, at least not fast enough for it to matter. She has very little ability to hold this energy herself, and must discharge it fairly quickly. Once its left her body, she can't really control it.

She was born with her power, and so presumes herself a mutant.

Skills: No formal combat training, but can hold her own in hand-to-hand combat. In general, the skills you’d need to survive on her own, on the run, she has. Nothing out-of-the-ordinary.

History: Conduit’s father was a villain, one of those involved with the purge. Her mother was a rebellious daughter of a Korean general from Busan, who got caught up with the wrong people. She was disgusted by the villain’s actions and gained the opportunity to escape his custody when Mister Sinister staged his coup against Apocalypse. Since then, they have been on the run in the Sinister Empire, which encompasses Korea, North-east China and neighboring areas of Russia. Her mother was concerned more with survival than revolution, but since her death at the hands of a Sinister execution squad Mia has harbored the desire to bring down the dictator and liberate the people imprisoned in his capital, the audaciously-named Sinister Seoul.

Equipment: Basic survival tools, nothing fancy. A basic handgun. An experiment Sinister energy cell - think something a la the Iron Man arc reactor - which nobody can figure out how to use, but she can draw on its energy to fuel her powers.


As I told Q, I was purposely concealing her Father's identity, both because I'm not 100% sure who it is, and because neither is she. I resisted the urge to somehow name her Curtis as well. I'm imagining the Sinister Empire in a state of cold war with the neighboring Mandarin Kingdom to the South-east, the Silver Shogunate across the sea in Japan, I could go on.

*Dramatic entrance!* I'M INTERESTED!!!

Hehehe, yep, I'm back, and I thought this RP was interesting enough to get myself back into the flow of things.

Just gimme awhile to come up with a character, although feel free to start the RP whenever you want, no need to wait for me, I'll catch up, no worries.

OH! And some questions: Are we allowed to play as main superheroes/villains/whatever-they-are(s) from the Marvel-verse that may not be dead? And......I had another question, but I was tired when I typed this up, soooo, I'll ask it when I remember.

Alright, that's all!

We'll wait. And I guess you can do that. Just be careful with them. I don't want them to overpowered. If you want to make an original character as well your more than welcome to.

I was thinking either Beta Ray Bill or Deadpool, or both. Neither one is too overpowered, as they can both be killed (despite Deadpool's seeming immortality concerning his ability to survive decapitation/severed limbs and even blasts to the torso). Having Beta Ray Bill would allow me to have a tie-in with Thor, and thus a way to associate with your one character quickly and easily; and playing Deadpool would just be fun!

But that's all up to you.

Edit: And don't worry, I am making an OC too, that's the thing that's actually going to take me a bit and why it'd be okay for you guys to start without me.

Beta ray Bill sounds pretty good in my opinion. Deadpool...Hmm...I'll think on that one and let you know.

Alright, cool, I don't mind if I can't do Deadpool, I just wanted to play a less serious character for a change, and since Spiderman is dead; cant really go that route now can I? lol.

If I can't play Deadpool I'll just have to find another funny-guy is all.

Edit:

Quick question: Is this before or after the 'Old Man Logan' story arc?

Name: Bill or "Simon Walters"

Hero Name: Beta Ray Bill

Age: Unspecified

Gender: Male

Appearance: Profile Shot; Action Shot

Personality: Noble and benevolent, kind and humble, merciful and wise, fierce and loyal, Beta Ray Bill is almost the exact embodiment of Thor, what he was, the way he was, and the ideals he held. Beta Ray Bill is only different in that he has suffered different trials and learned different lessons than that of his Asgardian 'Oath Brother', giving him a different aspect on how things are, and the way things work, leaving him with a cooler, less brash head and a somewhat less willing nature to fight simply for the sake of fighting as Thor was known for. This leaves him seeming far more introspective than his Asgardian counterpart.

Powers: All the capabilities and powers of Thor as far as his knowledge lets him go in using said powers. Immense strength and stamina even outside of his 'god-form'; a product of both his species - the Korbinites - and being an advanced cybernetic being created by said species.

Skills: Martial and weapon expertise granted by his time spent in gladiatorial fights before he was given his powers, as well as leadership and teaching skills granted by his many experiences throughout the decades.

Affiliation: Good

History: Nothing can be said that isn't already known about Beta Ray Bill; he's an alien being known as a Korbinite, and cybernetic by their design, as well as one of the few beings in existence capable of wielding Mjolnir, Thor's hammer. Granted his own great and powerful Asgardian weapon/relic "Stormbreaker", Beta Ray Bill is the equal of Thor in many respects. To the unfortunate dismay of Beta Ray Bill, he was not there to aid Thor during the superhero massacre decades ago, as he'd been out in the far reaches of the galaxy alongside The Annihilators, a band of intergalactic heroes devoted to stopping cosmic threats, though only as a "last resort".

In fact, the Korbinite warrior knows little about what has happened on Earth for the last few decades, only that 'Stormbreaker' has sensed something has happened to both Thor and Mjolnir, and his brother-in-arms and fellow Annihilator, Silver Surfer, has disappeared after he returned to Earth years ago. Currently Beta Ray Bill is just on the outer fringes of the Sol system heading towards Earth in his ship, 'Skuttlebutt' finally unable to keep himself from being drawn back by his curiosity and concern, as well as 'Stormbreaker's' feint hints and revelations.

Equipment: 'Stormbreaker'; Asgardian Armor


Alright, got Beta Ray Bill done! Still working on my OC hero, and still waiting on your say-so about whether or not I can play as Deadpool.

The answer to Deadpool is...yes. And I'm liking the Beta Ray Bill CS.

As soon as the Deadpool CS is up and I have some time, The Rp shall be up.

Update.

And it is set after the Old Man Logan storyline.

Alright, thanks!

If it's after the main storyline, wouldn't it be much farther along than thirty years after the superhero massacre? The comic had the main plot set fifty years after the fall of the heroes, not trying to be a prig here - no offense and all - just wondering.

Woops. I actually meant for the Rp to be set around ten years after the events of the Comic. *Slaps self.* Thats what I get for posting the thread when tired. XD I'll fix that right now.

Thanks for pointing that out. That would have been very confusing

For the sake of keeping things more along the lines of reasonable (yes, even as Deadpool), I am refraining from giving him his 'Endless Satchel' ability, thus limiting his weapons and ammunition considerably, making him (at the very least - regardless of how hard he is to kill) less of a threat....Somewhat.

Name: Wade Wilson

Hero Name: Deadpool - 'The Merc With A Mouth'

Age: Roughly 100

Gender: Male

Appearance: Profile Shot; Action Shot

Personality: Completely Insane!!!

Powers: Highly advanced regenerative abilities, so-much-so as to be able to survive normally fatal wounds.

Skills: A master skilled in martial & weapon arts, the use of explosives and firearms, stealth and espionage, linguistics; 'As well as the finer points of humor and satire!'

Affiliation: Sometimes Good, Sometimes Bad; Whatever he feels like usually, though in the past before the purge he was making an effort to be a "Good Guy"

History: Shortly before the superhero massacre, Deadpool was approached by the Red Skull himself with an offer to join the villains (a rather hefty sum of money included in said offer) believing the mercenary's loyalty could be bought away from the heroes, yet to everyone's surprise, he declined.

During the purge Deadpool was indecisive in his actions - mostly staying out of the conflicts that arose, only to be attacked by villains sent against him for fear of him joining the heroes and aiding them. The 'Merc With A Mouth' survived his attempted assassination and shortly thereafter disappeared. It was nearly twenty years later until Deadpool resurfaced, only, time hadn't been kind to his already twisted and fragile psyche, the Mercenary-Mutate seemed unstable, even beyond his own natural instability, as if something had driven him so far beyond the edge that nothing could be conjured in the twisted mass that is Deadpool's mind to help anchor his thoughts in any cohesive manner. This surfacing was only brief, Deadpool quickly vanished once more.

It's been forty years, and two very short paragraphs, the mercenary once again has resurfaced, surprisingly, with all his faculties intact (as far as intact goes for Deadpool that is), as if his time going unbeknownst and unseen has helped to recover his former mindset. Yet Deadpool seems intent on some unknown goal, seeking some kind of ulterior revenge against some unknown entity. His first goal: "Turn Traitor!"

Equipment: Two Katanas; Three Pistols - two .38-Special N.O.M.A.D.s, and one Custom 'Warcannon' Mark VII, fires .460 SW Mag. rounds, and uses seldom as to the rarity of it's ammunition; Flashbangs, handgrenades, 'circular saw-blades', 'and bear traps!!!'; combat knife; One Stockless Shotgun; Two Sais; Limited range teleporter

I'll get to his history a little later, and I'm not satisfied with his equipment list, so expect more there too, but as of now, he is finished!

Edit: Yay! Done, though I'm not too happy with his history, I'll keep it for now and let it elaborate itself in the RP. Equipment's been slightly modified too, though I still feel he's lacking something....Any suggestions from anyone would be welcome.

Name: Joachim Peiper

Villain Name: The Red Skull

Age: Unknown

Gender: Superior Male

Appearance: http://x.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel/i/...background.jpg

Personality: Diabolically malicious, despite his quieter temperament. Unlike previous Red Skulls, Peiper is an ubermensch of relatively little speech. He is severe and without leeway for questioning. It is not uncommon for him to cut off metaphorical 'useless limbs' (usually his subordinates) at will due to inefficiency. The man is cool and calculating and is bent upon the continuation of an Eternal Reich. This determination is evident in his every action.

Powers: Superhuman intelligence, regeneration, and incredible strength and endurance. He is the Superior Man. Additionally, due to advanced study in evolution combined with Nazi wartime science...he is able to manipulate metallic substances at will.

Affiliation: Very evil.

Equipment: Advanced Luger P08 and a shifting arsenal of Nazi weaponry.

History: Peiper, the poster-boy of the Waffen SS served with distinction during the Second World War, gaining infamy not only for his strictly efficient military tactics but also for his absolute disregard for mercy. He was truly without ethics, choosing the objective over any and all other things, including morality. Additionally, he idolized Johann Schmidt (the original Red Skull) to the point where all his writings and observations were directly relayed to Hydra Command...where he was also offered a rare opportunity to join the paramilitary organization. On the grounds that the Third Reich needed true examples of the Overman, Peiper refused, vowing to one day return and learn from the man whose dangerous intellect (who is not, in any fashion, Adolf Hitler) opened the doors to his own personal philosophy of an Eternal Reich free from the Pedantry of lower Humanity..but also free from the ambitions of the so called 'master-race' of Aryan beings who claimed they were the progeny of the Gods. Peiper knew Johann Schmidt's truth.

After committing hundreds of war crimes and slaughtering thousands upon thousands of enemy soldiers during the war, Peiper and his 6th SS were brought to bear by the war's ending (despite attempts to start a guerilla war) and was tried at Nuremberg. Peiper was sentenced to death but was denied the noose (perhaps by someone higher up in power). He lived quietly in France following his release...until the survivors of a small Russian village he had burned to the ground promptly set fire to his household, burning him to death.

It is still largely a mystery as to how he is alive, but many theories point to the influential Doctor Arnhem Zola as a source of revival. It would certainly explain why Peiper is so similar to Schmidt in genetic structure and superhuman capability. Nonetheless, following Schmidt's death at the hands of Logan, Peiper returned from the shadows and assumed direct control of the Eternal Reich, refusing to give into complacency like his predecessor. Immediately, a purge unlike any other had began, echoing Peiper's early days on the Eastern front...back when the current Red Skull was really and truly known for the name "The Torch."

Name: Unknown
Villain Name: Mysterio
Age: Unknown
Gender: Possibly Male
Appearance: Mysterio wears a green body suit, padded for extra protection. His boots and gloves are a yellow color, with some decal work on the gauntlets. His two most iconic features are the purple cape he wears, which can cover his entire body minus the most important part. Referred to as a "fish bowl" by many a long time ago. The domed visor is no longer a laughing joke.
Personality: The most noticeable feature of Mysterio is the tranquility. Mysterio is a being who can keep composure better than almost every other villain out there. Not even in the face of failure does the masked master lose any sort of cool. This calmness is accompanied with quite a large ego given Mysterio's past. A near godlike complex makes getting under Mysterio's skin a very difficult feat. All are beneath Mysterio with team-ups with other villains being nothing more than a temporary necessity. Despite this new found ego, Mysterio can respect other villains...and even some of these heroes. One of the most interesting things to come from this ego is his lack of vengeance. No need to get back at those who might have mocked Mysterio in the past, or to bask in the news of Spiderman's death. Mysterio has no need for vengeance, as Mysterio is above such petty things.
Powers: Those who heard Mysterio's name in the past look to the parlor tricks and other uses of illusion. Such "magic" is for a mere mortal perhaps, but to this Mysterio? Only true power can be wielded by this Mysterio. Only true power could topple the X-Men themselves. Mysterio's use of magic is something to truly be feared.
Skills: Mysterio possesses a superior intellect and is a tactician in battle.
History: Mysterio is truly one of the most mysterious villains to walk this planet. The arrival of the domed villain came as a shock to almost everyone. Mysterio was sent to deal with Wolverine and the other X-Men. It was most likely a suicide mission, yet what happened on that mission would cause of the most significant victories for villains. Mysterio not only managed to trick Wolverine himself, but have the clawed brute take down the X-Men in the process.

That was the day Mysterio was no longer mocked by fellow villains. There was talk about Mysterio though. Rumors quickly spread that the Mysterio that defeated the X-Men was not the Mysterio who battled Spiderman many times. This Mysterio was met with both praise and fear...both were very much welcomed. This was a long time ago, and many years have passed.

Mysterio is now one of the key figures, standing along side such menacing villains as the Red Skull. Despite the many years, Mysterio doesn't seem to have taken effect to age. This is difficult due to no one seeing what hides behind that costume, but the voice sounds very similar. How is such a feat possible though? Is Mysterio's magic powerful enough to keep the master in peak condition? Is this another version of Mysterio, perhaps a new one? Is this Mysterio even human? The answer to those questions...is a mystery.
Equipment: A god needs no equipment.

Corny ending to the history...but needed. A special note is that Mysterio isn't obviously a god and neither are his abilities. He's powerful but no where close to godly...he just thinks he's that good :P

Question to all: Does anyone have plans for Silver Samurai and Japan? I seek to introduce Deadpool to the RP, and I was going to do so there, but I don't want to mess with either of those things if somebody already has desires and plans of their own.

If someone does have plans, then I'd like to know about anybody's plans for the midwest and 'Spider-Girl' aka Ashley Parker/Barton (or the "New Kingpin"; she's got all sorts of aliases), as that would be my secondary intro location in case the first is off limits.

Edit: Also, don't worry Chev, I've got my OC in the works, his Character Sheet will be up soon enough.

I don't have any plans for those two. And I also currently don't have any plans for the Midwest or Spidergirl.

Feel free to use them.

That's good, still gotta wait for input from the others before I proceed, but all the same, good to know.

I don't have any plans at all for Japan beyond thinking that the Silver Shogunate would be a cool name for a Japan run by the Silver Samurai.

Finish this later.

Name: Baxter Battles; 'Phylogeny'

Hero Name: Locus

Age: 38

Gender: Male

Appearance: Profile Shot

Personality: Docile and meek; Baxter is an unassuming man when it comes to the way he talks and acts, leaving many to believe him to be timid, shy, or even cowardly. Though they would be wrong in all three counts, as his withdrawn nature is due to a fear of himself...Yes, himself (that, and his suit prevents him from speaking properly, or even that loudly). What he is, and how he came to be, even his very own blood makes him extremely volatile in an emotional & mental capacity, and has taken him many years to come to the place he is today.

Powers: The manipulation of particles and energy down to their most core/quantitative forms, and the fundamental forces that govern them. In short: he controls quantum/fundamental physics.

His use and capabilities of said powers vary: Primarily he maintains a distinct usage of his abilities, the most common being the use of all four fundamental interactions to halt and even neutralize high outputs of force and energy and then localize and focus that force & energy into a ball - he often does this with explosions of varying degrees and origins, the size he can condense it down to is dependent on the amount of force and energy that has been condensed. While his use of said forces also allow him to pick up these spheres, oftentimes implementing them like weapons, as just touching one without him neutralizing the high energy properties of the balls could melt (and sometimes blow) one's finger off, let alone any other body part that may touch it. And often if he knows the opponent isn't stupid enough to stand there and let him melt a hole through their torso, then he can hasten the weak force of the abiding particles and thus release the hold on the ball of force & energy (as they maintain their form without his attention or concentration, as the applied mechanics of his manipulation of physics on them is basically permanent until he deems otherwise) causing the spheres to explode as they were intended, and oftentimes with even greater force as they were in a state of being constantly condensed and localized.

His other less known abilities range from using the electromagnetic force to curve objects around him much like a weak shield, and apply gravitational force to solid objects, which can have a degree of minor effects depending on the object, and what Baxter intended.

Many think he's telepathic, as this seems to be the way he communicates more openly with others, due to his lack of an ability to speak well due to his suit; but this is a misconception. He entangles particles within the brain, neurons mostly, so that he may communicate with others in a manner similar to telepathy, though rather than entering the conscience and subconsciousness of another as telepaths often do, his approach is a bit more rudimentary; processes of the mind transferring over, and back much like a highway (acting much the same too, with processes going both ways at the same time), one that can be very overwhelming for anyone not used to him in their head, and even for him should he get overtaxed with the burden of regulating the quantities of processes going to and fro (which allows him to mimic telepathy: so that only the processes that are meant to travel over from him to the other and vice versa do - while the subject of his communication doesn't suddenly have a seizure!). Thus for his safety and the safety of others he only links to one person at a time - fortunately for him he can "release" the entangled particles (though they still remain) so that he doesn't have to constantly manage between all the "bridges" he's made with others. These "bridges" take time to make, and often he has to be in near-constant vicinity to the subject that he wishes to communicate with to build the "bridge", so immediate communication by this means is rare, though he can force it to happen faster, he often chooses not to, as this can cause harm in various ways - should he need to, he can make these bridges between two other people also, though he's only done this once, and not of his own volition. Not being apart of the link makes it very difficult for him to maintain control over the flow of information between the two parties, as well as turning it on and off; needless to say, his one attempt at doing so ended in one person dying of cerebral hemorrhaging, the other left a vegetable.

There is an even darker side to this ability of his, and that is the ability to control another. Though not dissimilar to mind control, the rudimentary form of it makes it far FAR more effective, though the process is almost impossible should he want to do so on someone hostile, as the time and energy that is needed is too much; because it takes far more time to entangle the needed number of particles, and a great deal of effort to funnel his desired processes into the other person while blocking all of theirs from entering his mind, all while preventing them from otherwise dying or damaged in some way from having their neural processes all but overridden within a relatively short span of time. Though the more time he spends around the subject, regardless of the number of particles (though he still needs the larger number still) the quicker and easier it is to control them.

Most have come to fear that his abilities are too much, and often wonder whether he can control more than just force and energy output, whether he can manipulate any form of matter, even organic? The answer, obviously, is yes, though his manipulation of that 'matter' begins and ends at entangling particles (non-organic ones to be honest) in the brain. Many hunt him, or at the very least, distrust him for his seemingly deity-like abilities. But their fears are often misplaced, as, although yes he is very powerful, a fraction of it is withheld by the suit he wears, which inhibits the function of his organs to a degree, the source of his abilities. This fraction is enough to keep him from creating singularities, and otherwise splitting atoms at will - but enough to allow him to manipulate physics within a moderate realm around himself. That, and his own discretion and restraint are what keep him from going that far; as others often don't realize how unstable and even draining his abilities are (though he can maintain more refined control outside his suit - with the trade-off that his abilities are even more debilitating).

Skills:

Affiliation: Formerly Bad; Currently Good

History:

Equipment: Advanced Containment Suit: though seemingly austere, other than for how it looks, it is actually one of the most advanced pieces of equipment to date, believed to be made from borrowed (or stolen) Kree or Skrull technologies, it is literally impossible to take off without the person who put it on taking it off, including it being someone from outside of whomever may be wearing it. Although many would think that with his powers, Baxter could remove the suit should he wish it, he cannot, or at the very least.....Has not. Though others would deem this overkill for someone of Baxter's abilities, the suit actually isn't advanced in the sense that it helps him, rather, it hampers him, making him less powerful, as well as far easier to control. The only real added benefits it gives him is a surprising degree of durability, capable of stopping high powered rifle rounds (especially the helmet, which is intentionally durable) and taking blows from potentially powerful foes (though that isn't to say damage taken from these sources is entirely negated, as he can end up with broken bones, ruptured organs, and internal bleeding/hemorrhaging - thus why he actively seeks to defend himself, even from these things). As well as the added function of regulating his body in certain ways, including that of even the slightest temperature changes. It can even apply medical aid should he be wounded, though this is VERY limited, only really being able to suture wounds (internally and externally), and apply medication (oftentimes the medicine has to be provided for it to use, and only carries liquid antiseptic and anesthetic agents at any given time for immediate use), while it can stiffen or tighten in areas to realign and brace dislocated and broken bones. It also does well against the elements, is fire retardant, and gives him an extra minute's worth of air when underwater - these are more due to the aesthetics of it being an advanced suit, more than by any means of design; as it would obviously do well in almost any weather condition, as well as be rather "unburnable" due to it's material and what it is, and his helmet naturally retains air, even while underwater or when subjected to a vacuum, though by fluke or oversight, it doesn't store air as one would expect an advanced suit to do, since it's function is as much to keep the wearer alive as it is to contain them and dampen their abilities!

I have another character I might be playing. Finishing up the (admittedly low-detailed) character sheet.

Name: Kitty Pryde
Hero Name: Shadow
Age: 82 (physically 30)
Gender: Female
Appearance: http://images.wikia.com/marveldataba...N212%29_01.jpg
Personality: She is often seen as cold, but in reality she is the same Kitty on the inside. Due to her experiences she has difficulty connection with people.
Powers: Phasing
Skills: Fairly high levels of martial arts
History: Kitty was trapped in a massive bullet due to the Breakworlders, keeping it phased so that it would destroy no planets. When she was phased, she did not age physically.

Now she has been returned to Earth (you'll see how), and is none too happy with what she has found.

Equipment: Nothing so far.

Evening gents, room for one more?

Name: Liu Tao
Hero Name: Shinobi
Age: 33
Gender: Male
Appearance: With the symbiote costume and without.

Personality: Calm and collected, Liu has become used to keeping quiet and unnoticed so he can blend in to any crowd. Out of costume he is very slow to trust or speak to anyone unless the situation absolutely calls for it, rather keeping to himself and meditating, honing his skills or resting.
In costume he takes on a more brash and direct personality, speaking in a slightly more gravely voice and making himself out to be an avenging angel as soon as **** hits the fan. Usually that side of his personality is not necessary to be shown to many people unless he wants to send a message; his actions speak more than his mouth ever can and there's no better way to scare the hell out of villains than have their heavily guarded facility blown up without anyone seeing even the slightest hint of who did it.

Powers: Increased strength, agility, speed and healing factor, all thanks to his symbiote.
Skills: Expert martial artist both in ninjutsu and wushu, trained in marksmanship although rarely uses guns. Expert infiltrator and guerrilla thanks to ninjutsu training.

History: Born in Hong Kong, Liu Tao grew up in a local wushu school that his father ran until his demise at the hands of a supervillain's minions come to shake down the place. Orphaned before his teenage years he resorted to the path that eventually led him to be a young street punk with many run-ins with the "law" or rather with the minions of whichever villain was periodically taking control of the city. He eventually drew interest from the assassin organization known as The Hand who finalized his training with their own flavour of ninjutsu and opened his eyes to the bigger picture in the world, teaching him languages and social skills so he could blend in wherever in the world and prepare him to work for the supervillains that might need his services under The Hand. He was not the best in his generation of Hand assassins, but he made due and often resorted to his previous wushu and streetfighting experience to gain an upper hand in sparring matches to stay afloat. During his time with the Hand, he found himself drawn more and more to the history of the organization while it was for a brief time under command by the American superhero known as Daredevil, finding the demon-worshipping evil ways of the Hand before and after Daredevil as something he was not comfortable with. Without revealing these inner thoughts to anyone around him, he sought for a way out and kept his head down while doing so.

A few years after his training was finished, at the age of 26, he was on a mission for the Mandarin in Kingpin's territory in America when during some simple scouting he found himself in an old abandoned warehouse. While moving through it to get to his destination, he stumbled on a crate, knocking it over a revealing inside a small pod that opened after hitting the concrete floor. From inside the pod, a dark ooze spilled all over the floor and touched Liu causing the ooze to wake up from whatever coma it had been in and envelop the frightened man. The symbiote linked minds with Liu, drawing on his memories and experiences formed a new outfit over the man before Liu fell unconscious over the sheer shock of what just happened.
The symbiote reached out to Liu in his sleep, conversing with him throughout an hour while the asian man was passed out on the floor of the warehouse. The symbiote, whether a continuation of a line of symbiotes that had been on earth for decades or a new arrival from off planet, was still juvenile and the first contact with a clear mind such as Liu's had shaped much of how the symbiote's personality grew from thereon out. After waking up Liu knew he had finally found his way out and the means to keep himself alive while running from the Hand. He had a responsibility now as well to guide the symbiote's growth in a path where it would not become chaotic like Venom and Carnage some half a century ago.

Liu immediately went off the radar, spending a few months conversing with the symbiote and testing the limits of his new enhanced strength, speed and agility. A year in he found himself in China where he eventually ended up re-inventing himself in a Shaolin Monastery while learning how to control the growing urges of his symbiote.
At the age of 31 he reappeared again, this time in the Silver Shogunate. During the course of a year he was seen across the island group of Japan, shutting down Hand outposts first and then causing general mischief against the Silver Samurai. However, as the Silver Shogunate was in a state of cold war with Sinister's empire on the mainland of China and Korea, the man and his symbiote decided it was best to cause some harm on that side as well to even things out. In any case it's easier to start with the two-bit villains like Silver Samurai before going to the favourite playground of heroes and villains alike; America.

Equipment: Although not really needing any of the equipment due to the symbiote being able to shapeshift into blades and such at least for a short period at a time, Liu prefers to carry around a katana as well as a total of ten kunai, of which two are always connected to a long chain to act as a long-range weapon without being thrown.


"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity in all this vastness there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
"

- Carl Sagan

hmm..luch took longer >.>
I hope I can take this one (the skills are extravagant)
And if I may, I try to make him a bit darker and evil without beeing evil.

Name: Alystaire Black (unknown)

Hero Name: Loki (the "real" one. not the Thor-movie guy. He is the norse fire-god and trickster)

Age:24

Gender: Male
Appearance:
Show spoiler


Personality: He is quite cocky. He knows it. He knows he has a strong power, and isnt afraid to use it to reach his goals. He isnt the guy who backs down easily.

Powers: Hypnosis.
Alystaire is able to create alternate realyties in the head of someone. There he can nearly do everything with the victim. Driving it insane, inflict damage or even kill. The victim doesnt notice, that he is cought, because the world he sees, wont change...well it is only imagionation. The more people affected by his hypnosis, the "world" will be more like a painting, so it is easyer to see through. Alystaire can affect up to 6 people at once, but is hard for him to maintain the illusion. If the oponent has a strong mind and will, he will see through the illusion earlier. BUT to see through the doesnt mean, it will collapse. To escape it, he needs to find the Trickster and "kill" him.

Alystaire CANT be fooled by mind tricks and illusions. Try to enter his mind, and you will se a wicked world, where you will lose your sanity

Arcane fire magic:

It is a very very and a lot of verys more old magic. Alystaire learned it by chance opening a cursed book. The book burned the images and powers in his mind. Inclusing knowlege of an ancient language. If he werent a illusionist, he would have been killed by the book. With this powers he can sumon all kinds of flames. blue, red or black flames. Each flame burns with another temperature. Blue ones are like ice, red like normal fire and black flames are hotter than the core of the sun and very difficult to douse. The only disadvantage of this skill is, that is needs time. The longer the spell, -wich NEEDS to be spoken, the more powerfull the magic will be.

Skills: Speed and (illusion)Skill. So he isnt the strongest nor the weakes guy arround

History: Imagine: Left is right, above is underneath. North is south. You think you got me, but suddenly i am standing behind you, with a knife in your back. But wait. The knife is gone, and i am standing in front of you with a crossbow. What is reality, what is fake? Fear is striking your heart but you cant run away....
Born in a small rural town Alystaire was fast known as a weird guy. Unable to control his powers, strange things occured arround him. People where confused, where walking the wrong way, and losing valuable objects, just to turn normal when he was gone. So he was avoided by all of the poeple. But still he managed to survive. At the age of 12 a mysterious man appeared in the village. The man found him fast. Somehow the man wasnt affected by his powers. So Alystaire was revealed to be a magician. A magician with a very powerful an unique ability. So Alystaire went with the man, who learned him to fight with magic and with "normal" weapons. Years passed by, and Alystaires name was forgotten fast. He was known as Loki the trickster. A dangerous and weird man, who took an assignement here and there, to get enough money to survive. But before reaching the peak of his powers, his mentor passed away, so Alystaire traveled the lands, searching for wisdom, power and mabye up to you, friendship.
A last thing...the book did a bit of damage...you will see what it did if you enter his mind.

HED, what kind of a plan do you have for the Sinister Empire? Since I'm putting my character into that mix, I don't want to spoil your plans there. Also if there's a place in your plans for my character, do share. I have no idea how he would eventually meet the resistance fighters but for the mean time he'll be running some interference against Sinister in Seoul.

For all the players in the Sinister Empire region, I think we should do a time skip event that would have a few of you meeting up with each other. If the need arises, I can create a character that can bring us all together. I think that would be the best way to get things moving again if everyone is still in.

Sorry, I've just been a bit busy with life (School mostly) to post regularly.

Time skips are, well, normally not my kind of thing. Especially with where things are right now, I feel like the Haeju situation would have to be brought to a proper conclusion before a time skip would work in the narrative. I don't want the rebellion against Sinister to move too quickly.

I've got another post outline, and hopefully I'll be able to write it later today.

Excuse my period of absence. I've been pouring my writing efforts into a project over at the Choice of Games forums as well as now being involved with the LFN revamp. Those two along with my internet instability lately are all draining time I can dedicate. I will do my utmost to get a post outline made so I can continue on this RP.

News!: I will be posting (or editing-in) as Deadpool, finally! So prepare for all your preconceptions of the Silver Shogunate to be altered.....Or destroyed, either way, suits me.
