Default The "Heroes vs. Villains" Marvel RPG Season II OOC/Sign-Up Thread



Welcome to Season II of the Heroes vs. Villains Marvel RPG.

Last season, seven previous seasons of continuity were wiped out for a brand new rebooted continuity.

The aftermath of the global event known as "House of M" changed the landscape of the Marvel Universe. The world's mutant population, once numbering in the millions, was cut to a fraction of its original number.

Villains took over new leaves. Loki, the Trickster God, was reborn into female form and joined the latest incarnation of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Avengers, as members new and old protected Earth from a new variety of threats. Sabretooth, long time member of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants, took to the streets of New York and clawed his way up the criminal ladder to be triumphantly crowned the Kingpin of New York. And Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin himself, pulled strings and manipulated to the point of dropping the blame of the Green Goblin mantle on to his son, a recently ressurected Harry Osborn, and taking control of SHIELD.

Now, Season II begins with the Marvel Universe poised a crossroads. Will the heroes of the Marvel U. finally bring justice to those that openly mock it, or will evil win the day? The answer is for you to decide.



GAMEMASTERS AND DEPUTIES

RULES
  • You can choose to be any superhero or supervillain in the Marvel Universe, as long as they:


Are NOT deities, gods, or people such as Galactus. People like Silver Surfer and Thanos are okay, though...


Are true to the personality and abilities of the character. We don't want to see Cyclops rip off a babies' head with his eye beams, or have Dazzler beat up Galactus.
  • Don't do anything RANDOM like chopping off board user's heads or what not, unless your a villain chopping off inanimate victims heads, then whatever, go with it, as long as it's not technically RANDOM. Don't kill people without reason. Don't randomly kill NPC's.
  • You know your weaknesses and strengths, what you can do or can't. Spider-Man will lose against Thor one on one, but may be able to use his allies to help out or he can run away.
  • Don’t kill a PC unless you have a plan to bring them back.
    Don’t kill your character when you quit the RPG, this rob's a person from playing that character.
  • If there is a problem between you and another player,
    or if you have question's please talk to one of the GMs at the top of this post
  • There should be MINIMAL cussing and swearing in posts.
    There will be NO By-passing the censors. This is a Hype rule, and NO exceptions will be made for the RPG.
  • No obscene topics!

What to do in the RPG-
  • Act like your character; ASSUME their traits and personality...
  • You can form super villain gang’s superhero teams, alliances, the works.
  • There can be a number of stories (or arcs) going on at once, using different people.
  • There are endless places to go and endless things to do: ENDLESS possibilities so get creative...
  • And the most important rule:

    Have fun and remember, it's only a game

People who disobey these rules, some more major than the others, will get BOOTED by the GM. If need be a Moderator will be called in.

Heroes VS. Villains Marvel RPG Application





Screen Name: Optikal

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Ares, God of War

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): As an immortal god, Ares possesses vast strength and endurance. His physical capabilities are superior to those of the majority of Olympian gods. He has virtually inexhaustible stamina, and does not tire appreciably after any exertion. He is stronger than the average Olympian, strength level estimated to being able to lift c. 70 tons.

Like all Olympians, Ares is immortal, possessing a life essence that cannot be ended by any conventional means. He can be wounded in battle, but his godly life force gives him incredible recuperative abilities. He can fully recover from penetration wounds (such as by knife, sword, or bullet) in anywhere from minutes to hours, depending on their severity. Only an injury of such magnitude that it incinerates him or disperses a major portion of his bodily molecules could cause him physical death. Even then, his life essence may still be unharmed, and Zeus may be able to resurrect him. Superhuman strength, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes. He has also been shown to be injured by weapons of magical nature such as Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor.

Ares is a master of hand to hand combat and of all forms of weaponry. He prefers to use melee combat tools such as swords, axes and knives. However, he is proficient with all modern day weaponry too. He also has some low-level magic abilities such as summoning weapons or sensing if magic is being used.


During season one Ares found himself sent to Earth, tasked by Zeus to unearth and stop some unseen threat. He stopped a giant robot Hitler from destroying New York before finding himself in Latveria and assisting the Norse Gods in their quest for the Norn stones.

Following a meeting with the Avengers, Ares found himself battling alongside them against the last Titan, Typhon. After defeating his ancient foe, Ares came to realise that during his absence, his son Alexander had disappeared along with most of the Greek Pantheon.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): N/A

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I plan to continue the story I've set up through season one and help push Ares as the definitive anti-hero. I picked him up because Ares is a great character, a true badass mixing elements of The Punisher with mightier characters like Thor. He has a sordid past as a villain but his current direction has placed him in the unlikely role of Father and Hero. I want to further explore those elements of his character and bring something different to the RPG.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: Spartan101@live.co.uk

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):




Ares stood upon the cliff looking down at a vast sea of dark shapeless forms. They stretched out as far as the eye could see, dotted with fires here and there, but as imposing a force as the world had ever seen.

A cool breeze swept over from the sea and cooled his grizzled features. The air still sat heavy with the scent of blood and death yet Ares found the lust within him unsatiated. In the existence of Gods such as he, the goings of man were often inconsequential and insignificant. But these past two days Ares had fought alongside lions. Men of great will and iron resolve. As he stood looking out over the enemy he knew that he stood at the epicenter of something truly special. This was a time of heroes and legends and history would written and soldified upon the arid soil under his boots.

“They are endless, are they not?”

Ares regarded the man who had stepped up to his right shoulder. The famed helm was tucked under arm and the brilliant red cloak wrapped around a bloodied muscular frame, fending off the cool of night. “Nothing is endless King of Sparta. And there is nothing amongst that horde that cannot be felled by blade or bow”.

“Aye. There's truth in that”.

Man and God alike stood in silence for a few minutes surveying the dark stain across the Grecian coast. Each lost in thought of war and family. Life and death.

“Do you think we can win this, Lord Ares?”

Ares rubbed at his chin and shook his head. “That is a question for which I have no answer, Leonidas. Do you think you can win?”

Leonidas sighed and glanced up at the stars. “All I know is that we must do enough. We are but a pebble trying to hold back the ocean. But I also know that we will give them no quarter, we will plunge our spears into Persian hearts so long as there is life in our own. We will be Spartans and do what Spartans do best”.

Ares smiled and clapped the Spartan on the shoulder. “Aye King, and tomorrow the God of War stands proud at your shoulder and together we'll whip those dogs into submission”.

Leonidas nodded as the cool breeze swept over the cliff top.

Screen Name: Optikal

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Steve Rogers

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Steve Rogers is the United States first Super Soldier. With a special serum running through his veins, he has enhanced levels of endurance, agility, speed, stamina and strength. He is the ultimate soldier.

The First Captain America and a founder of the Avengers, Steve Rogers has recently retired his Super Hero ways and passed on the mantle to former sidekick and best friend, James 'Bucky' Barnes. Now, taking stock of his life and attempting to find his way in the world, Steve has been approached by an old comrade and friend in Nick Fury for a new assignment, one not requiring the touch of Captain America, but of Steve Rogers, the ultimate soldier.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): Avengers, Shield, Howling Commandos

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I plan on continuing the story I have begun in season one and establishing Steve Rogers himself, rather than merely his former Steve persona. I chose him because he's a big character with a rich history. This is also a rare and interesting opportunity to write a new chapter and breach new horizons with a major player in the 616 universe.

Steve Rogers stood by the door as the plane made it's way over the French countryside. He made a few last minute checks as he prepared to jump. Today was just a routine mission, something to keep him in minutes he'll parachute down, locate the target and destroy it. Simple.

Steve received the signal from the pilot, indicating they were in the correct position. Pulling back the heavy plane door, Rogers immediately felt the immense air pressure, this was nothing new, he'd jumped countless times. Steadying himself he stepped out and felt the familiar rush as he descended. With impeccable timing Steve released his parachute as the ground rushed up towards him and then landed in a cold, desolate field.

In the distance he could see his target, a small but noticeable bunker, an ammunitions dump for the enemy forces. Just a simple, routine mission tonight, destroy the munitions and eliminate any opposition.

Shedding his parachute, Steve advanced on the target, swiftly but still wary, in case enemy forces were in the vicinity. As he neared he spotted an enemy guard, clearly tired and disinterested in guarding anything. Steve advanced once more and despite no longer carrying his famous shield, he was ready for anything. He stealthily approached the enemy from behind and with one swift, carefully timed movement, knocked the man unconscious with barely a sound.

Dragging the comatose man out of sight, Steve then advanced on the main bunker. The bunker itself was much smaller than Steve had envisioned and didn't seem to have any kind of security measures whatsoever. Steve simply opened the main door and stepped into the darkness.

Scanning the bleak room inside Steve couldn't see anything in the way of ammunition or weapons, only a number of tables, cabinets and a small amount of shredded paper. It seemed like the intelligence report he had received was incorrect, there wasn't anything worth finding here.

Then, Steve heard it, a faint whimper from somewhere near him. Listening closely he heard the noise again, this time following it to it's source. It seemed to come from the other side of the wall. The wall itself was ageing and decrepit, Steve knew he could take it down with the right amount of pressure in the correct place. Finding a nearby chair, Steve brought the metal legs down directly into the wall, shattering a number of the bricks into dust and making a large enough hole for him to squeeze through.

As Steve made his way through the hole he caught sight of someone sitting in a chair on the other side of the dimly lit room. Cautiously making his way over he saw the man in the chair wasn't moving, or even breathing. Cupping the man's chin and tilting his head back slowly Steve got a look at his face, beaten and swollen, like he had been tortured.

What alarmed Steve was the man's naked torso, his skin had turned bright red, and had seemingly endless amounts of tiny puncture marks, like he had been injected over and over again. Lower down there were slash marks, almost surgical incisions but with very little care or accuracy. Worse still, several layers of skin had been removed and tiny, crude mechanical implants had been placed inside the man's skin. Steve had no idea what had been done to this man but it seemed to be far more than torture that had taken place here.

A shuffling noise behind Steve alarmed him as he turned and saw the guard he had knocked out earlier, clearly he had regained consciousness quicker than Steve had expected. The guard's jaw dropped in a mixture of awe and fear as he uttered two words in clear English, "Super Soldier".

The guard raised his gun but before he could even brush the trigger Steve caught him squarely in the jaw, Steve's vastly superior reflexes allowing him to strike before the guard could act. The guard was sent hurtling backward, his head hitting hard against the wall behind him.

Steve checked him, dead. A rare mistake for the former Captain America. He had not meant to kill him, after all, you can't get answers from a dead man.

Steve moved back over to the man in the chair and was shocked as the man opened his mouth and coughed dark red blood, dribbling down his chin and onto his chest, wincing as the pain ran through his body. Steve looked the man square in the eyes and saw the same look the guard had had when he saw him. The man then managed to splutter the words, barely audible but unmistakeable, "Super Soldier".

Steve could see the agony on the man's face and knew he could not leave him this way. Steve picked up the guard's gun and slowly took aim at the man's head. The man gradually closed his eyes and Steve could see a very faint glimmer of a smile on his face. “I'm sorry. I'm so sorry” Steve whispered as he gently squeezed the trigger.

Rogers didn't know what had gone on in this hellish building, but he knew he couldn't let any of it remain. Whether because of others finding it and benefiting from the evil that took place within it's walls or simply because he felt deep sympathy for the tortured man, Steve knew he had to destroy it.

Arming the explosives he had originally intended to put to use in destroying enemy munitions, Steve left the building and made his way to the rendezvous point. He heard the loud explosion behind him and glanced back. Rogers did not know what had taken place within the building, he wasn't sure if he would ever know. The one thing Steve did know is that he didn't want to see a human being treated in the same way as the tortured man, he had to do all he could in order to prevent the evil that he had witnessed from ever occurring again.

Heroes VS. Villains Marvel RPG Application

Screen Name: Keyser Soze

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Loki

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences):

Loki has the powers inherent in all Asgardians, such as superhuman strength and endurance, and an extremely long life-span that by human standards would be deemed immortal. However, Loki also has a mastery of magic and the dark arts. This magical skill is put to a variety of uses, including shape-shifting, flight, astral projection, hypnotic suggestion, and the manipulation of mystic energy in battle, for defensive or offensive purposes.

Last season, Loki was resurrected, albeit with reduced power, trapped in the mortal form of a woman. But after gathering the 9 Norn Stones, Loki acquired the Odinpower, restoring his true godly form and bringing back Asgard and its citizens. The Odinpower was expended, but Loki was left with his full Asgardian powers restored alongside his true form. Convincing Thor of his honest intentions, Loki has been tentatively allowed to remain with The Avengers.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): The Avengers.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?):

I've chosen this character because I had a ball playing them last season. And I plan on continuing my longform storyline for the character on into this season, and leave you continuing to guess at the character's motivations.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?:

MSN.

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

Would you like to hear a riddle?

When you have been around as long as I have, you see all the trends and fashions amongst mortals come and go. One that seems to have fallen out of favour in recent centuries, but which I always had a certain fondness for, is the art of a good riddle. Here’s a little one I’ve been mulling over, let me know what you think.

I am neither gun nor blade, yet I am one of the most dangerous weapons in the world. I have destroyed king and farmer alike, and I have also been created and wielded by king and farmer alike, for as long as such people have existed. And I am a weapon each and every one of you has used at one point or another. What am I?

Am I not a secret?

For the longest time, this is what man and god had in common. We were beings that lived for our secrets. The art of concealment, of subterfuge, it was what set us apart from the animals. But that seems to have changed in modern times. Now, you mortals are sloppy, you allow your secrets to be splashed across the pages of your newspapers. And that is if you even bother trying to keep them. These days, everyone wants to talk about their feelings. They go onto this “internet” and tell the world the most intimate details of their lives in “blogs”. And then there is this craze for therapy, for paying somebody to unlock your little neuroses. I don’t believe in any such nonsense. But out of curiosity, I would like to give it a try. Unburden myself – I hold many secrets. Which is why I now speak with you, little human. I look at you, and it occurs to me that you have a trustworthy face. I think I can share my secrets with you, in confidence that you will not tell another soul. I can trust you, yes?

Very well, then. Here are the secrets of Loki.

I have just become a hero, it would seem. A hero of Asgard and Midgard alike. This is new to me, as even though I have been aligned with your world’s heroes since my resurrection, I was up until recently viewed as a reformed villain. But then I did what my brother Thor could not do. I brought back Asgard, and all its denizens, all thought lost forever in the depths of Ragnarok. I had to engage in some necessary deception to accomplish this, but Thor forgave me, and made sure that all of Asgard knew it was I who was responsible for their salvation. Oh, my friend, I can’t describe it. The looks first of confusion in their eyes, then gratitude. All these Asgardians who have long despised and distrusted me, who always treated me as an outsider who didn’t belong, now at last they see me not just as one of them, but as someone to place on a pedestal, someone to admire and idolize. They embraced me, they called me brother. Do you know what that made me feel, my honest friend?

Disgust.

All these dribbling, knuckle-dragging buffoons, they spend century upon century mocking and belittling me, calling me Liesmith, yet now because Thor gives his permission, they love me. But it is mouth-honour, breath. Words they do not mean. I have saved their lives, dragged their worthless little beings from the abyss of nothingness, yet still if something untoward were to happen, I would be the first to fall under suspicion. And even if that weren’t true, even if they simply embraced me as one of them, I would still be disgusted. I am not one of them. I never was, and never will be one of them. And that is not to say I am a Frost Giant of Jotunheim either. Lowly, stupid creatures that live and die in squalor, where they belong. I was always destined for something greater than the station of my birth, and cast aside my meagre Jotun origins like your butterflies cast off their caterpillar shell. I am a unique being, born giant, raised god, yet something far greater than either. No being, least of all a mere mortal such as yourself, can comprehend the true nature of what I am.

Indeed, your feeble little mind is still struggling with a simpler question. If I loathe all of Asgard so much, then why did I bring it back? A just question, my friend, and there are many answers I could provide for it. But I shall settle for the simplest answer: it is all part of my plan. What plan? Oh, I really should not share. But I trust you, we are friends, so in this spirit of openness, I shall confide.

I brought back Asgard, and it now exists within Midgard. But Asgard is not all that I brought back...

I could be more explicit, but you are intelligent fellow. You should be able to figure it out. And what of The Avengers? What of my brother? I have been allowed to remain part of an team, still an Avenger. How generous of them! Oh, I have plans for them. Such plans! There are things on the horizon that will make them suffer. This team will fall apart, with me perfectly positioned to drive the wedge right down the middle. And when Thor is at his most vulnerable, on the brink of despair, he will look to his trusted brother with no one else to turn to. It is then that the dagger will be ready for his heart.

But there is perhaps one admission I need to make. That riddle we discussed earlier? I gave you the wrong answer. I am not a secret.

I am a lie.

A lie has been used by each and every one of you. A lie has been created and wielded by kings and farmers alike. A lie has destroyed kings and farmers alike. A lie is one of the most dangerous weapons on earth. Particularly when the lie is coming from my mouth. For countless mortal lifetimes I have been crafting lies, making an artform out of deceit. For I am the God of Mischief, am I not? Indeed, I may have been lying to you. Maybe I really do want to change, maybe I want to be better and I have no intention of ever harming my fellow Asgardians, my Avengers teammates, or my brother Thor. Or maybe I don’t. Maybe I really will do every vengeful thing I say I am going to do. What path will I choose? You will just have to wait and see like everyone else.

Ever since the time of the Vikings, people have asked the same tiresome question: am I good or evil? My friend, such a question demonstrates how primitive your human minds really are. You cannot understand, so you try to categorise something that is so much larger than you and your simplistic morals. I am neither good nor evil, hero nor villain. I am Loki. And that is all, and that is all.

Heroes VS. Villains Marvel RPG Application

Screen Name: Byrd Man

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Tony Stark/Iron Man

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): No powers on his own, but Tony has a genius level intellect and the Iron Man armor gives him a variety of powers; including super-strength, flight, and the ability to fire repulsor ray blasts. Son of legendary technology pioneer Howard Stark, Tony grew up in a life of privelage, never earning his money or status. While on a business trip to Vietnam (later changed to the Middle East) Tony was injured and kidnapped by a terrorist group. Held prisoner and forced to work for the group, Tony built a powerful weapon to escape: a suit of armor. Dubbing himself Iron Man, Tony takes to the skies to protect America and the rest of the world.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): Avengers (founding member)

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I am a huge Batman fan, and I love playing him in DC. But I think sometimes I just enjoy playing Tony more. He has some of the aspects that I love with Batman with all the....baggage. Instead of the men who hides behind the facade of being a billionaire playboy, Tony is actually like that! You can be oddball with him and have fun. As for my goals, work with the Avengers and do another sub-plot involving Ezekiel Stane.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: mattj600@hotmail.com

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

Stark Tower

The welder sparks and throws back sparks as I lay down a bead of molten metal on to the piece of metal.

"Tony!" Pepper shouts over the welding.

"What is it, Pep?" I ask as I shut down the welder.

"Couple of things. A reporter from the New York Times is on the phone, he wants a react quote from you on Norman Osborn taking over SHIELD."

I slide my welding glasses off and look into the air for a long moment.

"Osborn pins the Green Goblin on his son, copies my armor, and that entitles him to run the biggest peace keeping force on the planet? I had my chauffeur pretend to be Iron Man for years, does that make mean I get to be Secretary of Defense?"

"Is that all?" Pepper asks with an arched eyebrow as soon as she finishes writing the quote down.

"Yeah. What's wrong with it?"

"It seemed a bit.....snarky, is all."

"I'm worth a kajillion dollars. I can afford to be snarky. Besides, don't I own the Times?"

"No."

"Well, look into how much it'd cost to buy the paper. What else?"

"You missed your appointment with the people at Lockheed."

"When was it?"

"4 p.m."

"Then, I'm only two hours late. Call them up and-"

"4 p.m. yesterday."

"26 hours late. Okay, see if they're still in town and see if we can have a late dinner to discuss business. Is that all?"

"No, actually. I'll be gone this weekend."

"What? Why?"

"Happy and I...it's our anniversary."

"Congrats! Hey, take all next week off. You and Happy both, fly to Europe and do romantic things, all on the bosses ticket."

"But-"

"I'll be fine. Jarvis still knows how to make a sandwich.....or so I hope. Now leave me, I gotta get back to work."

I slide my goggles back on.

"What are you building, anyway?"

"A new suit," I reply as I strike the welder back on. "Old Shellhead is getting an upgrade."

(i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I chose Hawkeye because he's been my character since way back at the end of Season II of the original game. I plan to continue with his development as leader of the Avengers, and perhaps explore a darker side of the character as his distrust of Loki grows stronger and he deals with the new leadership of SHIELD


Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?:

MSN.

SEVERAL WEEKS AGO

The halls of the newly resurrected Asgard were alive with joyous celebration and reunion. All around, old allies and close friends greeted one another, sharing hearty laughter and shouts of happiness. The mead flowed freely and the food was plentiful. Not a soul around was without a smile and a light heart.

Except for one, a lone human among the ancient gods.

"I should kill you right now."

Hawkeye stood, arms crossed, glare cold, in a far corner of the expansive, shimmering foyer, his icy blue eyes staring daggers into the God of Mischief.

"I don't care what bulls*** excuse you used with your brother. I ain't buying any of it. You used this team and you put every single one of us in danger for your own self fulfilling needs. If you really wanted to be the hero and save Asgard, you would have at the very least spoken up. Real heroes don't go behind there friends' back and put them in mortal danger for a fleeting second of glory. The only reason I'm even entertaining the thought of still letting you pretend to be on this team is for Thor. For some reason that I doubt God himself even understands, he still believes in you with all his heart."

Hawkeye turned, not giving Loki a chance to respond, and made his way back out into the golden halls of Asgard, heading for the massive archway leading out into the bright Oklahoma sun.

There was new work to be done.

Bucky settled onto the plush, overstuffed wrap around sofa in the main living room of Avengers Mansion, the first chance he had to relax since he had woken up from his Winter Soldier programming.

The last several weeks had been hectic to say the least. He went from hired ex-Soviet assassin to Capatin America Avengers, in just under 48 hours and instantly found himself in back to back fights against the very gods of mythology themselves.

Small first steps toward his own personal repentance.

The door leading into the kitchen area opened, and an attractive, well built blond entered the room, carrying a fistful of celery in one hand and a diet soda in the other.

Bucky had briefly been introduced to Carol Danvers several days ago in Oklahoma, but neither hardly had the time for proper pleasantries at the time. He had just that day found out that, under a variety of codenames, the current being Ms. Marvel, Carol had been a long time Avenger.

"You watching anything?" she asked, motioning to the television.

"All yours," Bucky smiled, finding himself stealing a quick glance as she bent over to pick up the remote before settling into the recliner across the room.

Maybe this Avenger thing wouldn't be so bad after all.

Heroes VS. Villains Marvel RPG Application

Screen Name: Byrd Man

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Matt Murdock/Daredevil

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): While blind, Matt's other senses operate at superhuman levels. In addition he is also an excellent athlete, gymnast, boxer, and one of the best martial artists in the Marvel U.

Everyone knows the origin, so I'll cut to the chase. Last season, Matt fought Sabretooth and the Hood, eventually reaching a truce with Sabretooth. The mutant crime lord double-crossed him and exposed his identity as Daredevil. Matt was arrested for the crimes he committed as Dardevil and is currently in Ryker's awaiting trial.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): None

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): Well, I wrote Matt into quite the corner last season. I want to go through the mindset of the tortured and now betrayed vigilante. Also, I want revenge on Sabretooth! REVENGE!!!!!111

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: mattj600@hotmail.com


Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

8 AM and someone knocks on my apartment door. Four people, from the sounds outside the door. I pull myself out of my armchair and walk to the door.

"Matt Murdock?" The man in the front asks.

"Yes?"

"I'm FBI Special Agent Rivers. Along with me are Special Agent Noland and NYPD Detectives Bunkland and Charleston. We're here because we have a warrant for your arrest. Please, come quietly with us."

I can take them out. All four of them would be on the ground unconscious before they'd even know what happened. I can run, I have enough money to withdraw cash and go. But any chance I have of clearing my name will be ruined. I hold my hands out and let the FBI agent clamp the cold steel on my wrist.


*****


Three hours in a police holding cell and I'm in a courtroom, waitng for the judge of my bail hearing. Judge Lopez, a woman I've argued before many times, will be presiding. Foggy is next to me, my legal counsel.

"Bail might be tricky, Matt."

"Why? I have no priors, this is my first incident."

"But you've been arresting on thirty-counts of aggrivated assault, twelve counts of assault with a deadly weapon, ten counts of mayhem, and three counts of obstruction of justice! They're saying you got people off in the court just to beat them up as Daredevil!"

"Look at me Foggy. I. Am. Blind. I cannot see. Who in their right mind will put a blind man in Ryker's?"

"That doesn't matter. They have DNA evidence, you've been caught red-handed."

"I can't go to Ryker's. The guards are too corruptible. Sabretooth will try to kill me. I doesn't surprise me if he's paid off a few of the bailiffs."

"Is he behind this? He leaked your name to the press?"

"Yes. He wants me out of the picture and wants the Kitchen to himself."

"How'd he get your blood, anyway?"

I breath deeply. This is going to be hard.

"He got it from a fight I had a few weeks ago with Carnage. He was attacking Sabretooths' men and I helped out."

"You were helping out Sabretooth's men?" Foggy asks. I can already hear his heartbeat starting to rise.

"Yes. That's why he left Hell's Kitchen alone. We came to an agreement. If I left his business alone, he would stay out of Hell's Kitchen."

Foggy remains silent. But I can hear his heartbeat racing and can feel the heat coming off his cheeks.

"All rise," the bailiff says. Foggy and I stand up as the judge walks in. "The Honorable Judge Margret Lopez presiding," the bailiff continues. The judge smacks her gavel. "Be seated."

I sit back down. Foggy stays up, drawing the attention of the courtroom.

"Any reason why you're still standing, Mister Nelson?" Lopez asks.

"Yes, Your Honor, I hereby resign myself as Mister Murdock's legal counsel."

Foggy turns around and walks out of the courtroom, leaving me dumbfounded and shocked.

"Mister Murdock?"

I stand to adress the judge.

"Yes, Your Honor?"

"Do you have any legal counsel available, or do you request a public defender represent you?"

"No, Your Honor. I'll represent myself."

"Very well. You've been charged with a laundry list of charges. How do you plead?"

"Not Guilty to all charges, Your Honor."

"I see. I have a letter here from the FBI and the District Attorney's office that you be denied bail based on your past history of violence."

"Your Honor, that 'past history' is based on an accusation. I have no past record, and have not been convicted of anyting yet. More so, I find it ridiculous that the police are accusing a blind man of being a masked vigilante."

"Thank you, Mister Murdock. Unfortunately for you, the evidence speaks to your past. You may not have been convicted of being Daredevil, but the DNA speaks to the fact you are. If you indeed are Daredevil, then I am disappointed and upset. You have argued before me many times, Mister Murdock, and I have often heard you defend the law, the system, and people's rights many times. The claims and evidence of your secret life show you for what you are: a hippocrite who mocks societies laws by parading around in a Halloween costume and taking the law into his own hands. Bail is denied, you will be transferred to Ryker's Island to await trial."

Lopez bangs her gavel with a resounding thud. The bailiff approaches me and leads me away.


*****


My footsteps echo through the cells of Ryker's Island. I've been denied bail, but I'm being placed in protective custody because of my blindness. Prisoners try to goad me with catcalls, death threats, and promises of sodomy. I remain silent as the guards lead me through the halls and into the empty cell of the protective custody wing.

The cell door slams shut with a metallic clank. From far away, I hear a familair chuckle.


"I know you can hear me, Matthew," Wilson Fisk says from the next wing over. "Welcome to Hell. I'm your new master."

Screen Name: Watchman

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Dr. Victor Von Doom

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Victor Von Doom attended the same college as Reed Richards where an experiment of his went wrong left his face scarred. Doom expelled from school traveled around the world honing his skills in magic and science. He would eventually meet up with a group of monks who designed his infamous armor. Doom made his way back home to Latveria where he overthrew the king and became ruler of the country. He would eventually become one of the world's most feared and deadliest villain.

Recently, Doom was captured by the now head of S.H.I.E.L.D Norman Osborn under the guise of the Iron Patriot. Osborn and S.H.I.E.L.D have placed Latveria under their command and continue to strip it of Doom's technology. Doom is being held with a number of other prisoners in a hidden government facility.

Doom is proficient is many different areas of magic and science. He is one of smartest men in the galaxy with an intellect that is beyond genius. His suit of armor would make Tony Stark jealous, who isn't fit to lick the boot heel of Doom.


Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): None

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I miss this place. I want to come back, please. Really, I left Doom at the mercy at the Iron Patriot. Maybe it was a good thing because I would be spinning my wheels with him at that point. Now I'm going to pick his story back up: Think Oz with supervillains and Doom has no powers. An interesting idea that I was sort of toying with last season is at some points in his history Doom had access to God level powers, the Beyonder's, Cosmic Cube, things like that. Also things like time travel and other crazy powerful devices. What does a man like Doom do with that sort of power. What did he change. Are we leaving in Doom's world and we don't know it. I will also be revisiting stories like Doom sends the Baxter Building into space or sending the Four to steal Blackbeard's gold.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: Look to your left.


Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

"Prisoner alias: Dr. Doom, name Victor Von Doom. Welcome to your new home, you steel face freak." The guard pushed him into the steel cell. He press buttons on the keypad and a forcefield went up between the two.

"I can't believe we moved him out of the lower levels." The lowest levels were they kept the most dangerous sorts of criminals. Completely isolated and cut off from the rest of the world. Criminal, that is what this simpleton viewed him as. His fist curled up. Doom would make the guard into his new dog.

"They stripped him of any dangerous technologies. We had Doc Strange make a few visits. Of course no were near here. He did whatever the hell he did and now old Doomy here is about as harmless as a puppy. Isn't that right, Victor? Can you bark for us? Maybe I'll give you a treat." How dare he speak to him like that.

"What about his helmet?"

"Harmless but they can't find a way to remove. Whatever he can't do anything. Victor we're going to have fun down here. Believe me, you're in my hell now."

"Stop it. I don't like the way he's looking at us."

"Oh don't be such a wuss."

"I would advise you to listen to your friend, you cog."

"And what the hell are you going to do about."

"Do not test my patience."

"Try me."

"I have listen to you spew for quite some time, guard. You are unfit to even gaze upon Doom but you dare lay a finger upon me. I will break this excuse for a jail. I will make you bow before me. I will raze your birthplace, Dexter Green. Your wife, Cindy, will be banish to a Hell, that your ridiculous holy book can not begin to describe. Your children, Timothy, Rachel, and Harry will be reeducated and will wave the Latverian flag."

"Sonav..." He lowered the field. "I'll kill you, *****." He raised his nightstick but Doom grabs his arm and turns it in an unnatural position.

"Harmless?" Doom said with a mocking tone. There was a crack and he dropped his weapon.

"You stand before royalty and you continue to speak with such contempt. I believe I shall take your tongue." The other guard raised his gun.

"Very well." Green had wet his pants. The other guard was pulling him up and away from Doom. The field went back up.

"Do you understand why they moved you to Gen Pop? The others want to rip you apart. Their reps will go through the roof."

"These petty thieves? Doom is not locked in with them, they are locked in with their doom."

Doom is approved!

Now, time for me to get my 3rd character on.

Heroes vs. Villains

Marvel RPG Application

Screen Name: Byrd Man

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Parker Robbins/The Hood

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): A petty thief, Parker Robbins stole a pair of magical boots and a cape. The cape inabled him to become invisible, and the boots provided him with the ability to levitate. After gaining the cape and boots, Robbins adopted the moniker The Hood and began his quest to become New York's top criminal. Last season, he partnered with Daredevil in an effort to topple the Sabretooth organization. Betraying Daredevil, Hood was beaten by Sabretooth and retreated. With Daredevil in prison and Sabretooth still in Control, the now healed Robbins continues his quest to become New York's Kingpin.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): None

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): With Hood, I plan on playing the whole war with Sabretooth from another side. DD will be out of NYC for a good chunk of the season. As far as why I picked him? I want to continue being a thron in BK's ass! But seriously, I enjoy crime fiction (As if you didn't notice) and I'm getting a bit tired of playing cops and heroes, so I want to see how the other half lives.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: mattj600@hotmail.com

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

Brighton Beach

The man drops to his knees in the sand on the beach. Tossing off his cowboy hat, he begins to babble.

"D-d-d-don't kill me, please!"

His name is Lasso, a lieutenant for the Kingpin of New York, a mutant known as Sabretooth. The man with the gun to his head is Parker Robbins, better known as the Hood.

"Tell me what you do for Sabretooth."

"M-m-muscle, anything e-else needed to be done."

Hood nodded, pressing down on the barrel of the gun that was on the back of Lasso's head.

"I'll give you one chance to be honest with me. You lie, you die. Where do I find Sabretooth?"

"If I tell you, he'll kill me."

"If you don't tell me, I'll kill you. At least when you cross him, you get a head start."

"Alright, fine. Upper West Side Manhattan. He's got a penthouse there."

"Thanks," Hood says. The gun kicks in his hand and Lasso crumples on the sand, the 9MM bullet going clean through his head.

Hood turned and walked calmly up the beach, holstering his gun as he approached the edge of the sand. Twirling his cape around him, the criminal disappeared from sight. All that remained were footprints, and the dead body of Lass.

Heroes VS. Villains Marvel RPG Application
Screen Name: TrueMastermind



Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Nathanial Richards/Iron Lad

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences):
Iron Lad wears a futuristic suit that is armed with many powerful capabilities, given to him by his future self.

Nathanial Richards hails from the far future, where he was constanly bullied and harrassed by his fellow classmates. One a dark, stormy night, Nate took a shortcut on the way home and ran into the very boys he feared. Before any pain could be brought upon the scrawny teenager, a mysterious figure appeared and stopped the beating, claiming to be Nathanial's future self.

Kang the Conqueror showed the confused adolescent images of his supposed destiny, images of death and destruction. Not wishing to become an evil tyrant, Nathanial used a futuristic suit that Kang gave him to travel back into the time of the Avengers. Discovering that the team was disbanded and their glorious mansion in ruins, the young Kang attempted to go to a different time but found that his newly-given armor wasn't complying. Finding a holographic image of the hero known as the Vision, Richards rebuilt the cyborg by listening to the image's instructions.

Now a formidable duo, Nathanial Richards dubbed himself Iron Lad before the two got seperated in a battle with a pale-skinned brute. Following the Vision's orders, Iron Lad formed a team of teen heroes, a team destined to be the Avenger's sucessors. The Young Avengers.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): Young Avengers

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I plan to scribe the newly-formed team's adventures all throughout the season, as well at some time meeting the villianous Kang, who will become quite a problem for the young heroes. I've chosen Iron Lad because while scrolling through possible people to apply for last season, I saw this lad's potential for a good story. Hope you enjoy.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: Yahoo Messenger/ ReggiePanther


Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

"OWWW!" Hurled directly into a telephone booth, the recently named Asgardian screams out in immense pain while his new teammates continue their onslaught against their rampaging foe. And it wasn't going too great.

"Who dared to send these pibsqueaks onto me?! Where are the Avengers?!" Angered that little kids would even dare to challenge him, Eric Williams, known as the Grim Reaper, swings his magical scythe at the charging Hulkling. Having to leap out of harm's way, Teddy is hacked with a rapid follow-up, simply knocking the scaly brute to the side.

"They're busy." Williams is confused at where the voice came from, but is given his answer by the sneaky Patriot, who attacked the Avengers enemy from behind.

"You brat!" Fully recovered, Grim Reaper propelled Eli nearly 100 feet away with a electromagnetic blast. With all but one of his team out-of-commision, Iron Lad circles the cackling murderer, scared out of his boxers.

"Here goes nothing..." Iron Lad shoots toward his lone opponennt at full throttle, ready for impact.

Heroes VS. Villains Marvel RPG Application

Screen Name: Batman

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Peter Parker, The Amazing Spider-Man

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Superhuman strength, augmented agility and reflexes, accelerated healing, an ability to stick to virtually any surface, and a precognitive sense of danger - dubbed as a "Spider-Sense".

Bitten by an irradiated spider while attending a science demonstration, 15-year old Peter Parker's life was immediately changed. Normally the social outcast of his peers because of his keen scientific mind, but frail physicality, Parker's DNA was subsequently transformed by the radiation carried through the spider's venom. Deciding to cash in on his abilities, Peter anonymously entered a wrestling tournament, easily won, and attracted the attention of a television producer. Signing a contract to appear on his own show, he put his brains to the ultimate test by designing a pair of wrist mounted spinnerets, capable of producing a homemade webbing fluid. Stitching together a costume that would hide his identity and bedazzle audiences, Peter became an overnight sensation under another, far more marketable alias - The Spectacular Spider-Man.

But the price of fame soon caught up with the boy. Refusing to stop a fleeing robber as he ran out of the television station, Spider-Man effectively allowed the man that would later murder his Uncle Ben to do so. Hunting the criminal down to discover this grim truth, Peter learned a harsh life lesson in that with great power, there must also come great responsibility. Taking his persona to the streets of New York, Peter has dedicated his life to using his powers and identity as Spider-Man to protect those he's capable of saving, vowing to never again let his irresponsibility claim an innocent life.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): (Formerly) The Avengers, Currently None

What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?: To be honest, I think that to do Spider-Man right, you have to go in the opposite direction of what you're asking. Everyone both loves and identifies with the core essence that made the character a standout in the first place, and with so many changes to the mythology already, it seems only natural for me to bring him back to his roots. And with everything that's happened between Byrd Man's stellar work on the character, and where I left him last season, now's the perfect time to capitalize on that goal. This is going to be what One More Day and Brand New Day could have been, if the minds at the current Marvel administration had handled it with a respect for the past that brought Peter to this point in the first place. Everything classic about the Spider-Man mythos is something that I want to bring to the forefront, this season, as he deals with problems new and old, aswell as the ultimate threat to his existence.

To put it simple, it'll be just another day in the life of our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: allstarbatman@hotmail.com - MSN (The only messenger I use on a daily basis)

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in:

I think it was there, in that moment, that the 'nothing makes sense to me anymore' part truly reared it's ugly head. Exhibit D, ladies and gentlemen.

Norman Osborn, The Green Goblin, a man who I hate with such a passion that he's had the honor of being the one man I've nearly killed on several occasions, is now running the world's most covert spy organization. Their headquarters alone makes several small countries look insignificant. They have weapons of mass destruction for target practice. The files that they store contain some of the most vital secrets of our national security, and the identities of several costumed individuals whose lives are in a constant flux because such files exist. The only reason they ever agreed to let SHIELD keep them was because they trusted Nick Fury, and while he's not the most pleasant man in the world, I have to say that I trusted him, too.

But now Norman Osborn, who I consider to be the most dangerous individual on the planet, has the keys to everything that Fury had. He could flatten Latveria with a single killstrike order if he wanted to, not to mention the amount of leeway he could possibly possess with the government. He could have me hunted down and chained to the middle of Central Park, unmasked, for all the world to see and have everyone I care about arrested, if he hasn't already considered showing my face on national television anyway, outright telling the country who I am over Larry King Live. But beyond myself, if he controls SHIELD, he can have leverage over the asylum that Harry's been committed to. He could brainwash his son even further to use as a pawn against allied nations. He could...

Honestly, what can't he do now? He's running SHIELD. He might aswell have been handed the remote control to the entire world. And knowing how unpredictable he can get, there's no way to be sure of how he'll use this. I think I honestly preferred it when his most dangerous weapon was a pumpkin bomb and fashionably criminal purple briefs.

I don't even have any good jokes to make off of this. This is just too much. A nightmare come true doesn't do it justice. Norman Osborn has the keys to the world. He has the freaking country in his pocket. And there's not a damn thing I can do about it. I can't just go marching in to deck the leader of SHIELD. And I certainly can't speak out against him, for obvious reasons. He knows too many of my secrets, and more than that, my vulnerabilities. If I lift a finger to stop him, what's to say he won't just ruin my life even worse than he already has with little more than a phonecall and paperwork? He literally has that power now. The power of the most dangerous individual on the planet.

Like I said, I've never felt more alone in my entire life.

My wife is leaving me, probably for good.

My best friend is alive, but clinically ill and suffering a psychotic breakdown.

The Avengers have problems of their own to deal with, The Fantastic Four are off-planet, Daredevil's in jail, and I don't really have any other friends to talk to.

And my worst enemy has just been handed the single most devastating trump card imaginable.

I've dealt with some rough times before, and I've always tried to take the most responsible resolution. But this is honestly the first time I've ever had to stop, and ask myself the all-important question that's always lingered at the back of my mind. Because it's in that moment that I realize, I may have nothing left.

"Where do I go from here?"

Default Re: The "Heroes vs. Villains" Marvel RPG Season II OOC/Sign-Up Thread

Screen Name:MichaelChen

Character you would like to play: The Mandarin

Powers and Brief Origin: Ability to channel Chi for a variety of effects. including superhuman strength, superhuman striking power, enhanced speed, and able to go without food and water for years at a time by feeding on his own Chi.
Extremely experienced martial artist.
Extremely high pain tolerance.
Gifted knowledge of mysticism. Though not a true sorcerer, is capable of engineering multiple mystical items into devices more powerful than the sum of its parts.
Scientific genius in every major scientific field from biology to physics.
Mastery of military strategy.
Ten rings granting the ability to create illusions, tornadoes, lightning, ice, fire, disintergration, concussive beams, gravity, darkness, and transmute matter.

Born Tem Borjigin nearly 100 years ago, the boy who would become The Mandarin lost both his parents while yet a baby. His aunt raised him to think of the world as a harsh place where the strong ruled and the weak perished. Well, that's what she did when she wasn't smoking opium.

All of the family inheritance that wasn't spent on opium was spent training Tem Borjigin at science, warfare, and martial arts. By the time Borjigin reached adulthood, he was a brilliant scientist, a peerless martial artist, a brutal, ferocious soldier....and also flat broke.

The pennyless Borjigin was evicted from his family estate by the government because of his failure to pay his taxes. He prowled the earth for a while as a marauding criminal and mercenary before making his first big score: an alien ship full of advanced technology, including ten rings of power. Tem Borjigin, now calling himself The Mandarin, studied the technology on board and bent the rings to his will.

The Mandarin then declared war on the civilization that had taxed him and rendered him homeless, seeking forever to make the world a place of barbarism and predation.


Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): At least initially, I intend to make him the servant of The Hand. He may break free at some point, but basically I'm going to have the Hand resurrect him and enslave him.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?):
Initially, he's simply going to be a glorified attack-dog. If I decide that it's time for him to regain his free-will, he's going to try to end civilization, returning the world to the dark ages.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: Yes, AIM instant messenger, name mchlcjnkhn



Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

"Such a lovely child," Khan said as he patted the head of the pig-tailed blond little girl.

"Please don't hurt her!" said the sweating, balding little man on the viewscreen.

"Will the guards be away from their posts at the chemical plant tomorrow night at midnight?" asked The Mandarin in his deep, smooth, rumbling voice.

"I can't do that!" replied the little balding man, "there's no way for me to hide who sent the guards that order! They'll know I was in on it within hours of you hitting the place! They'll kill me!"

"I'm growing bored with this conversation. Plus, it's eating into my lunch-break" said The Mandarin, a smile twitching at the edge of his face. "Whatever shall I do about that?"

One of The Mandarin's rings began to glow. The little girl screamed as her body warped and mutated and shrank, transforming in seconds into a delicious bowl of mandarin duck.

The little balding man on the view-screen clutched what was left of his hair in his hands, "you murdered her! You monster!" he screamed.

"Not yet!" proclaimed The Mandarin gleefully, "what my Matter-Rearranger ring has done can be undone just as easily. Assuming, of course, that there is enough left of her to restore."

The Mandarin plucked a small piece of mandarin duck out of the bowl with chopsticks, "I wonder which part of her this was?" said The Mandarin, "her finger? Her toe? Her eye?" he closed his eyes and popped the piece of mandarin duck into his mouth, chewing it slowly, savoring the exquisite flavor.

"For godssake, stop! Stop!" screamed the little balding man, "I'll do it! I'll give all the guards the night off!"

"Excellent!" said The Mandarin, "I'm so pleased that we could come to an understanding."

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Tony Stark/Iron Man

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): No powers on his own, but Tony has a genius level intellect and the Iron Man armor gives him a variety of powers; including super-strength, flight, and the ability to fire repulsor ray blasts. Son of legendary technology pioneer Howard Stark, Tony grew up in a life of privelage, never earning his money or status. While on a business trip to Vietnam (later changed to the Middle East) Tony was injured and kidnapped by a terrorist group. Held prisoner and forced to work for the group, Tony built a powerful weapon to escape: a suit of armor. Dubbing himself Iron Man, Tony takes to the skies to protect America and the rest of the world.

(i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): I am a huge Batman fan, and I love playing him in DC. But I think sometimes I just enjoy playing Tony more. He has some of the aspects that I love with Batman with all the....baggage. Instead of the men who hides behind the facade of being a billionaire playboy, Tony is actually like that! You can be oddball with him and have fun. As for my goals, work with the Avengers and do another sub-plot involving Ezekiel Stane.

Stark Tower

The welder sparks and throws back sparks as I lay down a bead of molten metal on to the piece of metal.

"Tony!" Pepper shouts over the welding.

"What is it, Pep?" I ask as I shut down the welder.

"Couple of things. A reporter from the New York Times is on the phone, he wants a react quote from you on Norman Osborn taking over SHIELD."

I slide my welding glasses off and look into the air for a long moment.

"Osborn pins the Green Goblin on his son, copies my armor, and that entitles him to run the biggest peace keeping force on the planet? I had my chauffeur pretend to be Iron Man for years, does that make mean I get to be Secretary of Defense?"

"Is that all?" Pepper asks with an arched eyebrow as soon as she finishes writing the quote down.

"Yeah. What's wrong with it?"

"It seemed a bit.....snarky, is all."

"I'm worth a kajillion dollars. I can afford to be snarky. Besides, don't I own the Times?"

"No."

"Well, look into how much it'd cost to buy the paper. What else?"

"You missed your appointment with the people at Lockheed."

"When was it?"

"4 p.m."

"Then, I'm only two hours late. Call them up and-"

"4 p.m. yesterday."

"26 hours late. Okay, see if they're still in town and see if we can have a late dinner to discuss business. Is that all?"

"No, actually. I'll be gone this weekend."

"What? Why?"

"Happy and I...it's our anniversary."

"Congrats! Hey, take all next week off. You and Happy both, fly to Europe and do romantic things, all on the bosses ticket."

"But-"

"I'll be fine. Jarvis still knows how to make a sandwich.....or so I hope. Now leave me, I gotta get back to work."

I slide my goggles back on.

"What are you building, anyway?"

"A new suit," I reply as I strike the welder back on. "Old Shellhead is getting an upgrade."

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): While blind, Matt's other senses operate at superhuman levels. In addition he is also an excellent athlete, gymnast, boxer, and one of the best martial artists in the Marvel U.

Everyone knows the origin, so I'll cut to the chase. Last season, Matt fought Sabretooth and the Hood, eventually reaching a truce with Sabretooth. The mutant crime lord double-crossed him and exposed his identity as Daredevil. Matt was arrested for the crimes he committed as Dardevil and is currently in Ryker's awaiting trial.

8 AM and someone knocks on my apartment door. Four people, from the sounds outside the door. I pull myself out of my armchair and walk to the door.

"Matt Murdock?" The man in the front asks.

"Yes?"

"I'm FBI Special Agent Rivers. Along with me are Special Agent Noland and NYPD Detectives Bunkland and Charleston. We're here because we have a warrant for your arrest. Please, come quietly with us."

I can take them out. All four of them would be on the ground unconscious before they'd even know what happened. I can run, I have enough money to withdraw cash and go. But any chance I have of clearing my name will be ruined. I hold my hands out and let the FBI agent clamp the cold steel on my wrist.


*****


Three hours in a police holding cell and I'm in a courtroom, waitng for the judge of my bail hearing. Judge Lopez, a woman I've argued before many times, will be presiding. Foggy is next to me, my legal counsel.

"Bail might be tricky, Matt."

"Why? I have no priors, this is my first incident."

"But you've been arresting on thirty-counts of aggrivated assault, twelve counts of assault with a deadly weapon, ten counts of mayhem, and three counts of obstruction of justice! They're saying you got people off in the court just to beat them up as Daredevil!"

"Look at me Foggy. I. Am. Blind. I cannot see. Who in their right mind will put a blind man in Ryker's?"

"That doesn't matter. They have DNA evidence, you've been caught red-handed."

"I can't go to Ryker's. The guards are too corruptible. Sabretooth will try to kill me. I doesn't surprise me if he's paid off a few of the bailiffs."

"Is he behind this? He leaked your name to the press?"

"Yes. He wants me out of the picture and wants the Kitchen to himself."

"How'd he get your blood, anyway?"

I breath deeply. This is going to be hard.

"He got it from a fight I had a few weeks ago with Carnage. He was attacking Sabretooths' men and I helped out."

"You were helping out Sabretooth's men?" Foggy asks. I can already hear his heartbeat starting to rise.

"Yes. That's why he left Hell's Kitchen alone. We came to an agreement. If I left his business alone, he would stay out of Hell's Kitchen."

Foggy remains silent. But I can hear his heartbeat racing and can feel the heat coming off his cheeks.

"All rise," the bailiff says. Foggy and I stand up as the judge walks in. "The Honorable Judge Margret Lopez presiding," the bailiff continues. The judge smacks her gavel. "Be seated."

I sit back down. Foggy stays up, drawing the attention of the courtroom.

"Any reason why you're still standing, Mister Nelson?" Lopez asks.

"Yes, Your Honor, I hereby resign myself as Mister Murdock's legal counsel."

Foggy turns around and walks out of the courtroom, leaving me dumbfounded and shocked.

"Mister Murdock?"

I stand to adress the judge.

"Yes, Your Honor?"

"Do you have any legal counsel available, or do you request a public defender represent you?"

"No, Your Honor. I'll represent myself."

"Very well. You've been charged with a laundry list of charges. How do you plead?"

"Not Guilty to all charges, Your Honor."

"I see. I have a letter here from the FBI and the District Attorney's office that you be denied bail based on your past history of violence."

"Your Honor, that 'past history' is based on an accusation. I have no past record, and have not been convicted of anyting yet. More so, I find it ridiculous that the police are accusing a blind man of being a masked vigilante."

"Thank you, Mister Murdock. Unfortunately for you, the evidence speaks to your past. You may not have been convicted of being Daredevil, but the DNA speaks to the fact you are. If you indeed are Daredevil, then I am disappointed and upset. You have argued before me many times, Mister Murdock, and I have often heard you defend the law, the system, and people's rights many times. The claims and evidence of your secret life show you for what you are: a hippocrite who mocks societies laws by parading around in a Halloween costume and taking the law into his own hands. Bail is denied, you will be transferred to Ryker's Island to await trial."

Lopez bangs her gavel with a resounding thud. The bailiff approaches me and leads me away.


*****


My footsteps echo through the cells of Ryker's Island. I've been denied bail, but I'm being placed in protective custody because of my blindness. Prisoners try to goad me with catcalls, death threats, and promises of sodomy. I remain silent as the guards lead me through the halls and into the empty cell of the protective custody wing.

The cell door slams shut with a metallic clank. From far away, I hear a familair chuckle.


"I know you can hear me, Matthew," Wilson Fisk says from the next wing over. "Welcome to Hell. I'm your new master."

Heroes vs. Villains

Marvel RPG Application

Screen Name: Byrd Man

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Parker Robbins/The Hood

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): A petty thief, Parker Robbins stole a pair of magical boots and a cape. The cape inabled him to become invisible, and the boots provided him with the ability to levitate. After gaining the cape and boots, Robbins adopted the moniker The Hood and began his quest to become New York's top criminal. Last season, he partnered with Daredevil in an effort to topple the Sabretooth organization. Betraying Daredevil, Hood was beaten by Sabretooth and retreated. With Daredevil in prison and Sabretooth still in Control, the now healed Robbins continues his quest to become New York's Kingpin.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): None

(i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?): With Hood, I plan on playing the whole war with Sabretooth from another side. DD will be out of NYC for a good chunk of the season. As far as why I picked him? I want to continue being a thron in BK's ass! But seriously, I enjoy crime fiction (As if you didn't notice) and I'm getting a bit tired of playing cops and heroes, so I want to see how the other half lives.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: mattj600@hotmail.com

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):

Brighton Beach

The man drops to his knees in the sand on the beach. Tossing off his cowboy hat, he begins to babble.

"D-d-d-don't kill me, please!"

His name is Lasso, a lieutenant for the Kingpin of New York, a mutant known as Sabretooth. The man with the gun to his head is Parker Robbins, better known as the Hood.

"Tell me what you do for Sabretooth."

"M-m-muscle, anything e-else needed to be done."

Hood nodded, pressing down on the barrel of the gun that was on the back of Lasso's head.

"I'll give you one chance to be honest with me. You lie, you die. Where do I find Sabretooth?"

"If I tell you, he'll kill me."

"If you don't tell me, I'll kill you. At least when you cross him, you get a head start."

"Alright, fine. Upper West Side Manhattan. He's got a penthouse there."

"Thanks," Hood says. The gun kicks in his hand and Lasso crumples on the sand, the 9MM bullet going clean through his head.

Hood turned and walked calmly up the beach, holstering his gun as he approached the edge of the sand. Twirling his cape around him, the criminal disappeared from sight. All that remained were footprints, and the dead body of Lass.

Approved!
Approved!
Approved!

Mandarin is approved. Chen, I'd like with you to get with J'adore at some point. I think she's going to do an arc where Silver Sable is resurrected by the Hand and used as an assassin. Don't want ya'll to get your wires crossed and step on each other's toes too much.

That's cool. I'm hoping that, far from causing any toe-stepping, this gives us both an easy way into interactive play.

So, I think it's time to get this ball a-rollin' with my character of choice...

Screen Name: Andy C.

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Norman Osborn

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences):

Norman Osborn was born into a family of businessmen, men who spent their lives in the pursuit of wealth and power. To that end, he achieved far greater success than any of his ancestors, raising his company Oscorp to one of the most successful technological firms in the country by combining his brilliant intellect with his ruthless business tactics. Unfortunately, such a success came at the cost of many things, including his childhood as he was repeatedly abused by his father, including his relationship with his own son as he neglected and mistreated Harry....and including his sanity, as an ill-fated experiment with a formula by the late Mendel Stromm altered Norman's physiology and warped his mind, causing him to become the psychotic Green Goblin.

As the Goblin, Norman terrorized the New York City underworld, eventually rising to the top of the heap as one of the city's most feared crime lords before running afoul of the vigilante Spider-Man. Again and again the two clashed, their enmity growing deeper and deeper, finally culminating in one horrific night wherein Osborn murdered his enemy's love Gwen Stacy, then apparently took his own life, impaled on his own Glider.

Years passed, and after years of living in self-imposed exile in Europe, Osborn returned, having survived the impalement due to the healing factor endowed upon him by the Goblin Formula. Abducting the first-born child of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson and then killing the clone Ben Reilly soon after, the Green Goblin made a devastating return into the life of his sworn enemy. Afterwards, however, Osborn began to distance himself from the Goblin persona, attempting to reclaim his prominence first and foremost as a power-playing industrialist, only using the Goblin persona to further his means outside of costume...and gain the occasional sadistic thrill by tormenting Spider-Man.

After being betrayed by Doctor Octopus and the Sinister Six while trying to force the Red Skull to lift the bounty he had placed on superheroes (wanting to make sure no one could kill Spider-Man before him), Osborn took a new course of action, discarding the Green Goblin persona and resurrecting his son Harry to take the blame. Now free from suspicion, Norman equipped himself with stolen Iron Man technology, calling himself the Iron Patriot, and began a crusade to round up supervillains around the world.

Working under the supervision of SHIELD, the Iron Patriot brutally defeated and subdued dozens of villains, the most prominent being Latverian dictator Victor Von Doom, which then forced SHIELD to occupy the now-leaderless country. While helping rebuild the nation, a series of bombings across SHIELD's fleet and headquarters left most of the organization's chain of command incapacitated, missing, or dead.

With no one else in any condition to command, the Iron Patriot assumed control of the organization, and Norman Osborn revealed himself to the world, now in control of its most powerful military force.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): S.H.I.E.L.D.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar. One to explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen. The other to explain why you've chosen this character. (i.e. What are your goals? Will you be doing anything different with the character than is usually seen?):

I picked Osborn because he has the potential to be the single greatest villain in the Marvel universe. He's like if you put all the best parts of Lex Luthor and the Joker and mixed them into one guy, then gave him a rocket-powered hoverboard and had him start murdering people's girlfriends. You can go big and world-conquering with him, or you can have him go close-up and just make one particular person's life a living hell, and I plan on doing both.

As for what I've got in store, well, I did just put him in charge of a global army with access to all sorts of potentially apocalyptic super-weapons...and the man can only stay on his meds for so long...

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?:
I'm on AIM as StopAudacity716, and MSN as theaudacity716@live.com

Please provide a small sample post with original content in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least one line of dialogue):


"Careful, boys. That one's a killer."

The Iron Patriot paced impatiently as two SHIELD operatives wheeled their prisoner into his cell, the bald man unable to move from the full-body-and-face restraints strapping him down. While many others had gone into the prison facility snarling and screaming, and others played the stoic and put on a brave face, this one bore only an air of indifference.

"We've been waiting a good while for you," the Patriot addressed his prisoner. "A thrill-killing sadist, official homicides numbering in the dozens, unofficially very likely in the hundreds. You've worked for one boss after another, whoever will pay you to do what you do best. But money isn't a motivator for you, is it?"

The armored man stepped in close to the bound criminal, LED optical sensors glaring light into the man's uncaring eyes.

"It's an excuse."

Behind the leather and metal face-mask placed over his mouth, the prisoner smiled. Were he able to move his shoulders, he would have shrugged.

"There isn't a prison in the world that isn't too good for you, Bullseye. But at least here I can keep an eye on you. Take a good look through that door while it's still open, because once it closes, you'll never see the outside world again."

The two soldiers flanking Bullseye smirked, getting grim satisfaction in knowing that they were doing their part to keep a mass-murderer at bay. However, the Iron Patriot waved them off.

"Back to your posts, gentlemen. I've got a few words for our friend here before I leave him to rot."

The soldiers nodded in acknowledgment to their Director, then stepped out of the cell.

Once they were out of earshot, the Iron Patriot opened his visor, and Norman Osborn looked at Bullseye with a smug grin.

"Quite the performance there, Norman," Bullseye said, returning the grin. "You've really got these saps fooled. Now, tell me: when are you going to let me out to have some fun?"

"Oh, I'm never letting you out, Lester," Osborn said, his smile growing wider as the grin vanished from his prisoner's face. "That whole bit about you never seeing the outside world again was no act. You're scum, a ruthless murderer....which, I'll admit, part of me admires, but you're also a liability. I can't just assume that you'll be a loyal assassin for me when there are so many more people with very deep pockets who might offer you a higher wage to betray me."

Realizing that he was going to get no help from his fellow villain, Bullseye began to struggle against his restraints.

"What?! You--you can't...you're going to need me, Osborn! Someone has to do your dirty work, and I'm the best there is!"

"The best there was, maybe. As it turns out, I have a protege of my own, one who's finally ready to act in the field....and one who, frankly, makes you look like an amateur. Your services, therefore, are no longer necessary."

The Director of SHIELD turned and began to walk out of the cell, then looked over his shoulder.

"It's going very well, by the way."

"What?"

"The last time you fought me," Osborn explained, "you once mockingly asked me, 'how's taking over the world going for you, Norman?' "

With that, Osborn closed the visor of his helmet, the Iron Patriot's optical sensors glowing a bright red.

"It's going extremely well."

Lazy.

Quote:
Screen name: Harlekin
Character you would like to play: Angel (Warren Worthington III)
Powers and abilities: Mutant with the ability of flight, thanks to large wings petruding from his back; also possesses numerous abilities associated with this such as a flexible skeletal structure, improved eyesight and hollow bones.

Three reasons why you have chosen that character:
1. I have been a fan of Angel since pretty much the beginning.
2. He has a long history of involvement with other inhabitants of the Marvel Universe.
3. He's filthy rich.

Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: A character that hasn't been portrayed in a long time. He is also not tied down to the X-Men and there is a lot of opportunity for character interaction. Especially with what I have planned for him.

How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG: As I've noted before, I'll be inactive for most of the month of January. I'll be around, but don't count on me posting very often. During this time I will be involved in a solo arc or appear only rarely in other people's.

Please provide a sample post in the style that you plan to write your character in (must be at least 3 paragraphs long and contain at least 1 line of dialogue):
"Oh, you've got to be kidding me, Dukes," the high-flying Angel said with a smile as he swooped over the head of the ginormous Fred J. Dukes , aka the Blob (although his mother still calls him 'Frederick'). The villain raged in response, futilely attempting to swat his winged adversary out of the sky with his rather large hands.

Avoiding each blow with ease and a manner of grace, Warren Worthington continued to taunt his opponent. "Did you know I was sixteen when we first handed you your rotund behind on a silver platter? You still used to run with those circus freaks."
"Har har, laugh it up pretty boy, because when I get my hands on ye" the Blob responded, still attempting to grab the X-Man, "I'll make it so no amount of plastic sur-gery'll fix you up."
"Wow, Freddy, three syllables! Better watch out or you'll hurt your head!" the Angel laughed off the criminal's threats.

For several minutes this sequence of events repeated itself until the Blob's right hand was finally able to latch onto one of the Angel's legs. Although the hero tried to get free with all his might, the grinning Blob's grip was strong and decisive. Warren Worthington let out a scream as the villain applied pressure.

"Ye were saying, pretty boy?" the Blob chuckled.
Fighting through the pain, the winged mutant twisted and turned and delivered a punch to the fat criminal's head. The villain just laughed it off.
"That the best ye can do?"
"Actually," Angel replied, grimacing as his wings slammed hard on the Blob's ears. Reflexively, the criminal let his enemy go and the Angel quickly flies out of his grasp.

Nursing his bruised leg, the hero quickly flew back to his house, the Angel's Aerie. Recovering a few seconds later, the Blob quickly went in pursuit, the ground shaking as he charged towards the mansion. However, the enormous criminal came to a screeching halt when he saw his opponent appear out of the building with a bazooka in hand.

"Heh heh," the villain grinned, "give me your best shot."
"I will," Warren responded smiling, but instead of firing the weapon, he pushed a button on a small remote he held in his hand. Quite suddenly, a trap door opened under the spot where the Blob stood and the huge villain fell. Unfortunately, being as big as he was, the Blob became stuck in the hole, futilely swinging his little hand and feet, hoping to get free.

"Wait 'till I get out of this!" the villain yelled.
The Angel, meanwhile, fished his cell phone out of his uniform.
"Oh, I almost forgot. See ya around, tubby!" he said with a smile and a salute as he took to the air again.

"Hey, you can't leave me here!"

"Hey!


Do you know how to post pictures on the SHH boards?
Yes, I do, and I'd like this to be the picture on the roster:
