.about the ultimate dc universe rpg.

This game is similar to The "World Of Heroes" DC RPG,

however this one follows a different, non-established 'Ultimate' continuity, similar to Marvel's Ultimate line.

. the 'Ultimate' World: History and Parameters of the Ultimate DC Universe.

The following posts contain, the parameters and history of this universe.
Use these as a starting point, to get to know this world.
What you do in it and how your character reacts in it is entirely up to you.
Good luck!

.post one.

.post two.

.rules.
  • Players can choose any DC Comic character they wish, and ''Ultimize'' them. Since there is no established Ultimate continuity for DC, some liberties can be taken. However, We ask that you at least try and stay true to the character's basics. (IE: Superman's an alien, Batman's a mortal, Wonder Woman's an Amazonian warrior, ect.) Don't make him or her completely 100% different from his/her's Regular DC counterpart.
  • This is in an Ultimate DC continuity. Meaning, this does not tie into the continuity of DC Comics. (IE: Superman never died, Batman was never broken by Bane, ect.) So don't play as if any of that has already happen. This is a NEW universe.
  • No Killing. Unnamed faceless NPC's (*Non Player Characters) are okay, but not comic characters. Someone else may want to take up the character, or they may be imporant to another story.
  • You can go anywhere on earth, or travel off planet, but do so within your character's means.
  • Provided you've proven yourself a capable RPG participant, you will be allowed the option of two to three characters. Characters can be reserved at any point during the season for a period of two weeks.
  • You are your character, so act like it. Talk like them, use their dialogue. Do not exaggerate their powers or abilities, or pop-up here and there without explaination.
  • Several stories can be going at once, and you have the freedom to interact with other characters.
  • Borrowing elements from other mediums aside from the comic books is to be kept to a minimum. But a direct adaptation is prohibited. This RPG is about creativity... Try to your own ideas above all else. (If you're stuck creatively, ask the gamemasters for advice)
  • If your character is closely related to another player's character (Example: Lex and Superman), it is strongly suggested that you PM the other player about your plans, so they can plan accordingly.
  • No Time Travel. (Unless someone wants to play an Ultimate Booster Gold, where the character needs that.)
  • You must post every two weeks, though it is preferred that you post more. If you go two weeks without a post without prior notice, your character is be up for grabs.
  • All regular Hype rules also apply.
  • Have fun.

.'ULTIMATE DC UNIVERSE' RPG Application.

Screenname: Master Bruce

Character You Would Like To Play: Batman

Basic History Of The Character: After witnessing the brutal slaying of his parents by a lone gunmen, Bruce Wayne vowed a one-man war on criminality in all of it's forms. Training his mind and body to the peak of human potential, He returned to the corrupted utopia of Gotham City and became it's protector, inspired by a frightening image of his own youth... The Batman.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1.
He's freaking Batman. The best character in fiction to me, period.

2. I spent the entire first season building him up as a character, from when he donned the cowl to the point where he's accepted Gotham as his own responsibility. But I never really went... 'ultimate' enough with him. I want to fix that this season, while putting him against challenges he's yet to face.

3. ...Do you really need a real reason to choose Batman?

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you 'utlimizing' him or her?): While I don't plan on continuing my carbon copy of the standard Batman of DC, I do plan to keep the humanistic aspects I established in the first season. But Bruce is going to go through alot of pain, this season... both physically and psychologically. So don't expect him to come out of it the same.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): Not to sound arrogant by any means, but with Batman, I know I can bring a faithful rendition of the character while adding something new. I also plan to make him a better interactor with other characters, aswell as a better (and grittier) fighter.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): You know, I've thought about this... I'm gonna go differently. It'll better set me apart from all the RPG Batmen before me. This for Batman's speech, This for Bruce's.

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

This is one of my firsts in-game posts from last season. A little piece I like to call "Dawn Of The Knight"...

That's how long it took me to prepare for tonight. After my encounter with the gang on my first outing as a vigilante, my body was left beaten and broken, aswell as my pride. However, I finally had something that not even they could break. I had found my answer... The one I had been searching for all of these years. It had always been there. I had spent years around criminality, and it wasn't until I faced my own fear that I realised something about the criminal element.

They're cowards. Superstitious, cowardly men who fear symbols and myths, due to the stress of them breaking the laws of society. It was most apparent before I met Ra's Al Ghul... Who, at the time, was believed to be an urban myth by everyone, Including myself. His status as a mythic figure had given him fear, which was obviously why he was able to kill the people in that town, those years ago. It was because he was feared.
I too, in order to best the evil of which I promised to abolish from Gotham City, must become a feared mythological figure. Which is why I'm here tonight. My wounds are healed... And my shadow casts that of a fearsome myth. Tonight, I am not Bruce Wayne. I'm something much, much more fearsome. Something... mythical.

The costume took up most of that four weeks. While I stayed out of action, from the streets, letting my bones mend themselves back together, I used my wealth in creating the, what I consider, ultimate in theatrical illusion.

Wayne Enterprises, as I found out, had been working with the military in development of newer weapons. This included combat gear. The most sophisticated of the entire abandoned project was a strengthened layered combat bodysuit. This would be the starting point. The bodysuit was made out of an outer layer of spider silk, and padded with a nomex and kevlar bi-weave, with it's thickness varying in different parts of the suit, providing both vital protection, and nessacary allowance of free movement. The chest plate and attached hood have the thickest part of this bi-weave, due to the head and chest being the most vital areas to need protection in combat. It was perfect for my means... So I bought several. After all, I wasn't about to go back out onto the streets without some form of protection.

From there, I took control of the entire construction, for the rest of the costume. A bodysuit wouldn't be enough. I still needed the element of fear to be embodied into it. So, next came the mask... Or, rather... the cowl. As a base, I used the same ninja mask I wore the night that I was beaten. From there, I improved upon it. Cutting away the part of the mask that covered my mouth (to allow me to speak and breathe freely, when nessacary), I placed and mended a helmet like cowl ontop of that. It hid my features well, actually. But it still wasn't fearful. So, I began thinking about what made that Bat so terrifying... Which lead to the addition of two things. One, Lexcorp designed infared starlite nightvision lenses. This would both allow me to see at night, and give off a haunting glow within the cowl's eyeholes, completely hiding my pupils, further adding to the protection of my identity. The second, A chin guard... With attached makeshift titanium 'Bat ears', which held a microphone system inside... To call Alfred, if nessacary. (I was determined to conquer all of my mistakes the night of my failure, obviously)

Putting it all together, I created one object... which was useful, considering I couldn't possibly both to put the nessacary pieces together in the case of an emergency every night. With the cowl finished, it was... easier, from there. Since I saw no reason to take away the military 'utility' belt, I kept it and added it to the suit. To my surprise, it actually looked and worked better with it than my former vigilante gear. Turning to the Bat for inspiration once again, I began thinking of ways to mimic it's wings. At first, the logical answer seemed to be some sort of a hang glider.

However, it was impractical. I needed something easier to move with. So... I turned to the next best thing. Buying more spider silk, and weaving it to a large mass of nylon, I constructed a large, Bat-wing cloak. A cape, actually. And with it's creation came an entirely new purpose. I found that, due to the fabric's capability, It could stretch out to an almost identical point to that of a glider. In a way, I had both a glider and a cape... with praticality... Which is what I wanted in the first place. Lining it with an experimental fireproof application, I also weighted the tiny, Bat-like scallops on the bottom of the cape, making it into a weapon to add to my ever growing arsenal. (A 'whipping weapon', as Alfred put it.)

But I found that I needed a way to attach the cape to the suit. I couldn't simply strap it on with velcro, after all. So, I created a clasp that attached to the chest plate, and hooked into the back of the helmet. With a quick hit to the back of the head, I could loosen it, allowing me to take the cape off. However, due to it's design, it couldn't be loosened by accident. Only if I wanted it to... Which, needless to say, pleased me. During the creation of the clasp, I felt that it needed to be hided by something. Drawing up numerous designs, I finally came up with the perfect cover... A metalic, Bat-Like symbol, to be melded ontop of the clasp, making it virtually invisible, aswell as not interfering with it's function.

Realising that in order to protect my identity, I couldn't allow myself to be identified by fingerprints, I purchased a set of leather gloves. Sewing in a layer of the reinforced spider silk, to protect my forearms aswell as making it fit better to the overall suit, I added ceramic studs to the knuckles... giving me an added advantage, aswell as a much more powerful punch. Lastly was the boots. At first, they had no real function. But I couldn't just wear sneakers with this thing. So, I purchased a pair of leather boots, pretty much identical to the leather gloves. Creating 'socks' with the reinforced spider silk, I added them to the boots, aswell as ceramics to the toe area, improving the impact of a kick.

It was a grueling process. I worked, day and night, thinking up every pratical use for a costume like this, and then trying to figure out how to make it work. But finally, after a month of work and healing... I was ready to venture back out into the concrete jungle known as Gotham City.

So, here I am, standing ontop of a gargoyle. The shape of the cloak actually blends me into the alignment of gargoyles nicely. Thunder howls above me, providing for a nessacary mood. Tonight... I'm going to try it again. I'm going to try and take on this mission. But, with different means. Much different means.

I stand, with my eyes closed, taking in the sounds of the city with a calmness. Then, it rings out. Another scream.

"HELP! SOMEBODY HELP ME!"

A young woman. Judging from the tone, She's older than I am... but not by much. 25, perhaps. I turn towards the origin of the scream... And jump. Grabbing the ends of the cape, I feel the air pass my body as I begin to actually glide across the rooftops, for the first time. It's actually... thrilling, truth be told. Were I any other man, I'd pay more attention to the thrill of this. But, of course... I'm not.

I pass the area of which the woman is being chased, before landing on the shadowy ledge of a nearby building. I turn, surveying the situation. It's actually not that much different from when I did this a month ago. Two thugs, chasing a woman. One is armed, the other isn't. The only difference is... The thug isn't holding a knife. He's holding a gun. I clench my fists. The thug is a coward, using a gun to overpower the girl. But... If he's a coward... That should prove to be... beneficial, to my needs. I watch as the bigger thug grabs the stuggling woman, holding her in place. The armed thug holds the gun forward.

"Now, little lady... How's bout that fine purse you got dere?"

The woman hugs the purse, protecting it.

"It was my mother's!"

...The honoring of a parent's possession. Something I can relate to. The thug, however, doesn't seem as taken with it.

"An' this is your life, we're talkin about, sweetie. Now hand it over!"

"NO!"

"Fine! Have it your way!"

"Please... Please don't..."

The thug pulls the trigger. I wasn't planning on doing it this fast, but... screw it. NOW'S the time to act.

As the thug pulls, Something whistles through the air, striking the gun and the gunman's hand, forcing them apart. The thug screams as the object flies, sticking into a wall behind them. I know what the object is... considering I was the one who threw it. A shuriken... modified into the shape of a Bat. The Batarang, as Alfred called it. (Alfred, in case it wasn't apparent before... Had alot to say about this. Unfortunatley.)

I contemplate my next move, before I finally act.

"What the hell was that?!"

And then, I open my eyes. The lenses activate, sending a glow through the darkness. The thug looks up at it. His jaw nearly drops. It's showtime.
With a push off of the building, I leap out of the shadows, cape spread, casting a fearsome silluoette over the terrified thug.

"HOLY ****!"

I land between him, and the woman being held by the bigger thug. The thug stares at me, for a moment, before screaming at the top of his lungs, and running away. I hear the woman be thrown aside, behind me, by the bigger thug. I grit my teeth, before spinning, and sending a nice, swift drop kick to the thug's jaw. Due to the ceramic lining in my boot, it knocks him back quite a distance. I turn to the woman... Who seems as terrified of me as the thug was. I point to an exit to the alleyway.

"Run."

Even though she's scared of me, She complies, nodding slowly. I turn to the direction of the running thug. I cannot allow him to escape... Especially considering he's something I've been waiting to face. A mugger. With a gun.

I throw a grapnel line out to the rooftops above us, before swinging up to them. With the thug, He won't get far, due to him having to jump over trash cans and climb wire fences. With me, I only have the rooftops. So, I run, with my cape flapping behind me. It creates a very... haunting effect, that I only catch a glimpse of in the shadows below me. Truly, I've become more than a man. I've become a creature of the night.

Jumping down from the rooftops, I spread my cape, and slam my feet into the thug's chest, knocking him back. As he struggles to get up, I throw out another grapnel line, wrapping it around his legs. I pull, sending him back to the ground. Pulling him towards me, I find it difficult, at first, due to his struggling. He claws at the ground, whimpering, doing anything in his power to get away. Why, I believe the man's terrified of something...
I grab him, and hoist him up, with one arm. His whimpers become louder, looking at me with glassy eyes of awe and fear. He won't have to see me for much longer... Considering I plan on dropping him and his pal infront of the Gotham City Police Department. (Unnoticed, of course) However, I'm sure I'm something he won't forget, anytime soon. I sneer at him, as he begins to speak.

"Wh... Wha... What in god's name... ARE you?!"

I pull him closer, angrily. I need a name. Something that the criminals will whisper in fear, and something that the citizens of Gotham will turn to for hope.

"I'm-"

I stop. My real voice... It doesn't match the persona I've taken on. It's deep... But not nearly as inhuman as I'd like. I go to a deep, dark corner of my vocal cords... somewhere I've never dared tread before... and unleash it, onto the souls of Gotham. Thunder cracks behind me, as the rasped words escape my lips. I've sucessfully adoped a person that has become more than a simple man. This persona is a mythic creature of the night. Not unlike Bruce Wayne, whose purpose has now become that of a shell and a mask for my true self. This is my true self. I live, on this night. We all live. Bruce Wayne, my true self, and the other. Who is the other? The superstitious will come to know the name well.

"I'm Batman."

Character You Would Like To Play: Terry Holt/Mr. Terrific II

Basic History Of The Character: To know who Terry Holt is, you must first know who his grandfather, Michael Holt is. Michael Holt was a member of the Justice Society adopting the code name of "Mister Terrific". He participated in missions and even won the Medal of Honor, but because he was a black man he wasn't featured in the JSA comics and was always belittled by his teamates. After the breakup of the JSA, Michael satyed on with the U.S. Goverment and did covert missions along with Ted "Wildcat" Grant. During a mission to infiltrate Malcolm X's inner cirlce, Michael saw the light and converted to Islam. He resigned from service after Malcolm X was killed. After his resignation everything started going good for Michael. His business, Holt Electronics, boomed out the gate and became one of the world's most inovative companies, earning him billions in the process. Michael's only daughter, Elizabeth became a famous television reporter and was engaged to renowed author Terrance Sloan. Terrance dissapeard mysteriously, leaving Elizabeth 6 months pregnant. Right before Terry was born, Michael published a best selling tell all book Under The Hood he revealed his secret identity. Terry grew up in a life of privleage and at 18, he started his training to take up his grandfather's mantle and become the next Mr. Terrific. At 21 he finished first in his class at Gotham University while leading the basketball team to a NCAA tournament championship. Terry then went to medical school and became a renowned surgeon. After his 8 years of training and with assistance of his grandfather's experience and technology, Terry patrols the street of New York City as the hard hitting. Mr. Terrific. If you read all this then post a tick smiley.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1.
I like Earth-One Mr. Terrific now I get a chance to make a new one.

2. I wanted a chance to play a character with a pretty elaborate backstory.

3. He' Mr. Terrific, goddamit.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you 'utlimizing' him or her?): I plan to show a new take on the Terrific mantle, we've seen what he can do in regualar DC continuity and I want to show he can compete with the big boys in the Ultimate U.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I can bring a guy who has experience in the other RPGs. I can also bring some beer.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Black Comic Sans MS

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

"Get up, son."

My sides hurt and my lungs are on fire. I'm close to the point of puking. I've ran twelve miles nonstop.

"Please, granddad. It's been twelve miles. I'm at my limit."

He stares at me with a look of feirce determination.

"If you're at you limit, then you still got two miles to go, boy."

He jogs off a few yards ahead of me and turns back around.

"It ain't getting any closer, son."

I manage to pull myself up on my throbbing feet and aching knees. I run the next two miles without slowing down.

Screenname: Spike_x1

Character You Would Like To Play: Dr. Peter Silverstone/Blackrock

Basic History Of The Character: Dr. Silverstone was the director of research and development for United Broadcasting, and as such, responsibility fell onto him to study an alien artifact that the company acquired. The artifact happened to be a polished, black stone that harnessed radio, satellite, and virtually any other form of telecommunication signal, and converted it into usable energy. Sensing that the rock could be put to better use than whatever United Broadcasted had planned for it, Peter stole it from the lab, incorporated it into a costume, and assumed the identity of Blackrock as a hero of Metropolis.

Of course, it's only a matter of time before the endless stream of media traveling through Silverstone's brain takes it toll on him.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1.
I've been playing him since late in last season.

2. Superman villain. 'Nuff said.

3. He's just got a cool assortment of powers, with some interesting consequences that I have planned for them.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you 'utlimizing' him or her?): I hope to make him into what Two-Face is to Batman in the regular DCU: ie - an ally who turns to the side of evil, becoming the personification of what the respective hero could become if they had made the wrong choices.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): Hopefully concrete and interesting storytelling, as well some exciting stories. I also want to bring an element of humanity to Blackrock's name, which is being butchered pretty badly in the mainstream DCU right now.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Arial Narrow, Bold.

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

Peter rocketed through the sky, not slowing down even for a moment to give the Silver Banshee time to mount another attack against him. He had to use all of his speed to keep the creature from letting off another scream, knowing that it would, in all probability, be the last thing he'd ever hear.

'Damn, this creep's already leveled half of downtown!' he thought. He charged up his hand to deliver the meanest right hook he could muster. 'Not one more life!'

Playing before his mind's eye, thanks to the stone itself, Blackrock could see the image of both combatants, which was being filmed and broadcast from the ground, several stories below them. And he, along with the whole world watching, saw as his fist missed the Banshee's jaw.

"Crap."

The supernatural villainess seized the opportunity to attack and grabbed Peter by the sides of his head and inhaled sharply, preparing to unleash the deadly wail that had reduced so many innocent people to ashes already today.

Blackrock stared death in the face at that moment and panicked. With lightning speed, his hands covered the Banshee's mouth and poured black, flaming energy straight through the back of her head.

Peter stared downward in disbelief as the decapitated body of the Silver Banshee dropped to the ground like a lifeless piece of meat.

Yeah, that's me, Blackrock. A real hero.

Do You Know How To Post Pictures On The Hype?: 'Fraid not.

Blackrock should be under either "Heroes" or "Walking the Line," since he won't be a villain for a while yet.

Tough luck. There is no "Walking The Line". Pick a side, dammit!

...Oh, what the hell. You win. I'm too lazy to argue right now.

EDIT: Oh nice edit there, Spike.

I know it was a nice edit. I don't need you to tell me that.

.'ULTIMATE DC UNIVERSE' RPG Application.

Screenname:
trustyside-kick

Character You Would Like To Play:
Matt Hagen (Clayface)

Basic History Of The Character:
Matt had just recently gotten the role of his career that he believed would put him on everyone's A-list. The only problem is that he has now been type-casted. He will struggle very much in order to try to hold his former fame and the birth of Clayface will eventually turn out.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1.
I started his story out towards the end of the last Season.

2. As I said on my previous application from last season, I play a hero and walking-the-line character and this is my first time taking on a villain. I am a major Batman fan so I should have no problem playing from his Rogue's Gallery.

3. During this season is going to be when Matt finally turns evil and the shapeshifting beast Clayface is born.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you 'utlimizing' him or her?):
I'm going to do something that echoes the first appearance of Clayface back in the day but change it up. This will allow a mix of that long with my favorite protrayal of Clayface in the BTAS series. I was having second thoughts about being able to play this villain after creating him, but...I will try to continue him after he has become Clayface.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player):
Another villain to add to the group. I feel there are simply not enough villains being played in the RPG.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better):
Dark brown Trebuchet MS font for his dialogue.

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:
Here are some of my posts from last Season.

Character You Would Like To Play: Guy Gardner

Basic History Of The Character: A former detective from the Gotham PD, Guy Gardner was attacked and hospitalized by gangster Black Mask. In the hospital and contemplating suicide, Guy was approached by an alien named Kilowog to join an intergalactic police force known as The Green Lantern Corps. Guy is apart of the cloak and dagger section of the Corps run by a young ambitious alien named Sinestro. Guy and his fellow Yellow Lanterns weild yellow power rings that aren't as powerful as their Green counterparts and force the Yellow Lanterns to use knives and sidearms in it's place, but the rings used for more practical reasons and can keep a charge much longer than the green rings.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1.
I've always been a fan of all the GL's

2. I like the idea of the Yellow Lanterns

3. with two lanterns this seaon. I wanted to throw one more in the ring.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you 'utlimizing' him or her?): Earth One guy is a sort of clown in some aspects. I want to more of his badassery side and make him the bastard love child of Jack Bauer and John McClane.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): A player with experience in the Hype RPGs. I can also bring some chips and dip.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Dark Green, Arial Narrow

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

"Alright, punks. That's the end of your training you'll get your rings issued to you tonight. Head to your bunks."

The four other trainees and I head out of Kilowog's training room when a tall, thin, pink skinned man stops me.

"Your Guy Gardner right? I want to talk to you."

"Oh no, Sinestro. Your not grabbing another one. He's from Sector 2814 and you know Abin Sur hasn't had a partner in months."

"Well take it up with the Guardians. Se what they say."

Kilowog stomps off and Sinestro looks down at me.

"I've read your file. Your were in law enforcement back on your homeworld. I could use a man like you in my deapartment."

"What exactly is you departmen, may I ask?"

He throws me a devilish smile.

"Black Ops, Mr. Gardner. Black Ops."

Since I'm taking a temporary hiatus from the RPGs until I get my PC working again (I'm using campus computers, and can only use them for, like, 20 minutes at a time) should I just wait till I'm back to put in my applications?

Character You Would Like To Play: Mick Rory / Heat Wave

Basic History Of The Character: Mick Rory became fascinated with fire when he was a child. The fascination quickly turned into an obsession, and Rory set his home on fire. My first post as Heat Wave will be his history, so I'm not gonna say more here.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1.
I always wanted to play one of the Flash's rogues.

2. I think Heat Wave is very cool, and I always like villains who use fire. Don't know why

3. I prefer to choose lesser known villains in the RPG so I have free hands, sort of.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you 'utlimizing' him or her?): I want to make him a brutal killer that the heroes would really have to worry about. He'll be unpredictable and dangerous and he'll be quite the sociopath.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I hope to bring an interesting character to the RPG. I also want to make readers go "Oh *****, did he just do that?"

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Garamond, orange.

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

Mick Rory, named Heat Wave by the media, stood on top of an apartment building across from a liquor store. 10 minutes ago he had thrown two small charges inside, one had sprayed the floor and walls with gasoline when it went off, the other was a minor explosion wich served as the ignition.
He had calmly walked inside, armed with his pistol-sized flamethrower, and immediately melted the single security camera off the wall.
Bottles of alcohol had started to explode and the liquid inside increased the speed and size of the flames eathing through everything in sight.
The clerk had had no time to respond to being bathed in the foul smelling liquid, before he could feel nothing but a sprawling pain on every inch of his body.
He had screamed and dropped to the ground, but nothing helped. The flames were eating him alive.
Heat Wave walked slowly to the counter, looking in admiration at the fire that was consuming the store, as if the purpose of attacking the store was just to see it burn instead of robbing it.
But rob it he did, and when he reached the counter he opened the register and took out 400 dollars.
‘400 dollars?’ he tought, ‘This is a complete waste of my time’.
His sense of smell alerted him that the clerk was most likely burned to a crisp. His eyes found the small pile of burning meat that was once a man, and Heat Wave smiled. ‘Well, not a complete waste of time’.
He made his way out of the store as he heard the approaching sirens howling in the night. He should hurry up and leave, go home. He knew this, but he just couldn’t walk away from yet another one of his masterpieces.
So it was, that he had made his way into to apartment building across the road, gone up to the roof, and watched as the fire engulfing the store danced beautifully in the night, and seemed as if it was reaching for the moon.
He smiled. And he shed a tear of joy.
It was just so beautiful.

Character You Would Like To Play: Jean Loring/The Atom

Basic History Of The Character: Ray Palmer first gained his powers whilst shrinking himself to escape a cave-in...right? Not this time. Instead, the disastrous side-effect that had made the formula previously deadly was not nullified, and Jean Loring watched in horror as her husband slowly died. After being airlifted and recovering in hospital, Jean modified the lens that had shrunk Ray and finally accomplished what he had never been able to - discarding of the lethal substance whilst maintaining the power it grants. She has now decided to take up a costume and calls herself the Atom, fighting injustice in Ray's name.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1.
I thought it could be fun to play an all-new Atom.

2. I wanna develop my own character - Jean isn't the same psycho as seen in Identity Crisis.

3. I wanna modify the Atom, giving the identity a little mroe techno-wizardry.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person: I want to push Jean to extreme limits, maybe show off her psycho tendencies, perhaps throw into some sticky situations, and definitely have her itneract with other heroes.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I hope to bring a realistic, believable character. I want to have fun - that's why we all RP - so I wanna bring some of that, too.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech?: Jean Loring. The Atom.

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In: "You're late, Ms Loring. Again."

If Jean recognised the ire in the principle's tone, she did not alter to expression to acknowledge it. Instead, she merely placed her jacket onto the back of the chair and gazed up at the students gathered before her. An award-winning smile curved her rouged lips, and a single digit darted upwards to push back a stray lock of ebony hair. "Principle Earling! I'm so sorry to be of an inconvenience. Traffic was murder."

"Ms Loring, it is three o'clock in the afternoon."

"I know. Rush hour just keeps getting earlier and earlier..." She slumped back into her chair, attempting to conceal the exhaustion that was throbbing through her battered form. If only she could jsut blurt out the truth - that she had spent thirty-five minutes brawling with a microscopic alien creature that was intent on shrinking, and then dominating, the entire earth? Life would be a whole lot easier if I had just let it, she thought wryly.

The principle had exited the room, closing the door with barely a hint of restraint.

"So," she began, "where did we get to last time?"

Do You Know How To Post Pictures On The Hype?: Yup. If there are any artists out there, I'd be forever in your debt if you could design Jean a costume...

Well, you can keep them on reserve for two weeks, either way. With prior notice, if you think it's going to take longer, you can apply for them in two weeks and reserve them for another two weeks.
