    Default Planning Thread

    Marvel AND DC comic book heroes that are in the world. Inhumans, mutants, aliens, and humans who have technology would be all involved. This would be a NON side fighting rpg. So there would be fighting, but fighting among a story line characters. It would be developed.

    Each storyline would have an out of character thread to help plan it.

    All characters would come from Marvel or DC comic books, movies, or tv shows. One main character per person. So.. there can't be an Old man Logan and Wolverine playing by two different person. If Logan is being played that is the only Logan allowed. That includes Jean Gray/ Phoenix, Bruce Wayne/ Batman, ONE Spiderman unless it is agreed with the original Spiderman that another dimension can show up. That includes, Spiderwoman, Spidergirl, Spider Gwen.. etc.

    Pictures should be the comic book pictures, not the actors. Since Batman and Superman and etc are all played by many actors and actresses, it would be better for the comic book pictures be used for the pictures. Original work would be also included.

    Original characters will not be allowed as first character. It would be better to have a familiar character to be introduced first then let the person branch to original characters.

    Since DC and Marvel have different cities and different universes.. I was thinking that a POWER that BE would bring them into our world and dump them into a major city and let it unfold. Since Marvel has relatively the same cities as we do, it shouldn't be too hard for them. But DC might be a bit more disoriented. The Power that Be is only played to introduce new characters. They are more like a Watcher in Marvel than anything else. (Think Stan Lee being in every Marvel movie but not really being a major character)

    Possible Characters:
    DC Characters http://www.dccomics.com/characters
    Superman
    Supergirl
    Wonder Woman
    Aquaman
    Batman
    Robin
    Batgirl
    Flash
    Green Lantern
    Cyborg
    Green Arrow
    Catwoman
    Black Canary
    Joker

    Marvel Characters http://marvel.com/characters
    Spiderman
    Captain Marvel- reserved
    Miss Marvel reserved
    Hulk
    Doctor Strange
    Thor
    Loki
    Vision
    Luke Cage
    Jessica Jones
    Iron Fist
    Captain America
    Iron Man

    There are many more! Heck that is mainly off the top of my head.

    Main settings:

    Avengers Tower
    X-men Mansion
    Fortress of Solitude
    Justice League Headquarters

    So with them being in our universe, these obviously do not really exist. I would think that the leaders that the Powers that Be drop first would establish something that the others would end up living there, if they want. There is no sides, so a DC hero can live in a Marvel headquarters if they chose to. The villians that might be played would make it interesting if Joker met Loki. Or Thanos. It would make interesting stories.

    Leveling up will be through level 20. Each level means a new character. Each player submits a request for promotion form and leaders will vote yes or no if they are active enough for another character. Leaders have unlimited characters *looks at Windi*

    My only issue is being locked into a backstory someone else wrote. I like making my own characters.

    No sides? Not even villians vs heroes?

    Can I bring in others characters from various tv shows? Like Jared the Pretender?

    It would only be Marvel and DC comic book heroes. Jared is not a Marvel or DC comic book hero.

    Backstories are written yes, but it makes it fun playing other characters. Not all backstories are fleshed out. Some of the more obscure ones have like three lines of a backstory.

    Villains and heroes change depending on the storyline so it wouldn't make sense making sides when they flip flop all the time. I mean it would be kinda fun to see Loki in the Avengers area, getting kicked out and joining up with Joker someplace and causing havoc.

    I am not a comic book fan so I'm not sure I know enough about them to stick to a backstory very well.

    In Stan Lee's passing, I want to rekindle this thought process.

    I still like this idea to flesh it out more.
