I'm tempted to join this game since it's the last season. But I have absolutely no idea what's going on in it.

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name: Watchman

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Lex Luthor, Purple Georgia

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences) If you copy/paste this information from another website, link back to it, or it is considered plagiarism and is not allowed. : Lex Luthor climbed his way out of the slums and turn himself into a self-made billionaire. Upon graduating from MIT he set up his own business Lexcorp, one of the world's largest corporations. Since then he has joined and started super villain groups, became president, tried to kill Superman on more then one occasion.

Luthor sees Superman as a determent to mankind and without him in the way humans could be brought to the next level. Of course his quest to destroy the world's greatest heroes sounds a lot more noble when you say it like that. Luthor is a giant cruel, vain, egotistical narcissist. His quest to seek validation, acknowledgment, and success is cosmic in scale.

Luthor is perhaps one of the smartest men on the planet. He is very capable is multiple field of science and has access to a vast amount of resources. Including- Battle suits, giant killer robots, money, a talking gorilla, and a host of dayglo ridiculous costumed henchmen and women.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): A laundry list of super villain groups.

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 this is the last season and this is Luthor the man that prides himself on being the supreme human, the perfect man, the alpha male and now he is coming face to face with inadequacy. Essential he's going to go through a midlife crisis. Superman saves the world, destroys the god of all evil and looks the same. Lex Luthor...builds a giant robot, it blows up, plans foiled, and he gets older and older. This will be the crescendo of the Superman/Luthor rivalry and also some fun crazy adventures mostly influence by Cornell's story.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: Yup, MSN-Watchman876@hotmail.com

If you know how to post pictures, please provide a picture of your character you wish to be used for the Character Roster (if you do not know how, or do not have a preference, please say so and a default picture shall be picked for you):



No, really

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


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):

If he had hair there would be grays by now.

Luthor had saw himself in the mirror briefly...wrinkles, crow's feet. Spending all your time and effort fending off an alien space god invasion from your city does he looks like he barely lifted a finger. He looks like he just touched down in Metropolis. What does he get in return? Force to live underground, always on the run. A fugitive and a criminal that is what they have labeled him?! How dare they!

He wields two pieces together. Another death machine, it will probably end up being some sort of robot or kryptonite death ray. He steps back and lifts up his goggles. He reaches for a pipe as his face contorts in disgust.

"Useless!" He screams and brings the pipe down. Microchips and parts fly up. Luthor screams in angry and takes his machine and throws it against the wall.

"I am Lex Luthor, damn it," he yells at the broken machine, "I will not be a victim to dim-witted plans and uninspired ideas." He brings his fist against the mirror. He recoils his hand and notices the blood.

Is this is what he has been reduced to? Failure after failure has turn him into into it was time to change this around. A transformation was required. His mind would not waste away to inane super weapons. Superman will crack in his hands.

"I will not be a victim to nature. I control it."

Africa.

"You know somethin' Jeva? When that old guy ponies up the cash for these pelts, I'm gonna get me the finest women this pile o' dirt country has to offer. Then I'm gonna party til I can't stand".

Jeva glanced up at the battered old Jeep where the other man was sitting. "Is that right Barton? Well how about you put out that smoke and help me skin these damn things? You know, actually earn some of that dough?"

Barton grinned and took a long drag of his cigarette and blew it into the air above his head. "Hey, I made the kill, you gots to skin 'em. That's the deal".

Jeva sighed and wiped the blood and gore from his hands on his khaki shorts. "All right" he sighed, "But you're doing the ones at the next site. Right?"

Barton laughed heartily and shook his head. "If you say so, buddy".

"You're not going to make it to the next site. Or any other".


Barton and Jeva jumped at the new voice. A near naked man leapt from a nearby tree, a glinting blade in his hand. "I've disabled your damn traps. This ends here" he growled.

Barton reached into the back of the Jeep for his rifle but the man sprang forward, cat-like and landed on the hood of the vehicle. Leaping over the windshield he grabbed Bartons hand as it rested on the weapon and drove the knife through his throat.

The savage leapt from the Jeep and turned his attention to Jeva. The poacher leapt backwards, creating distance and brandishing the knife he'd used to skin the dead lion at his feet. "S-Stay back man or I'll kill you! I've got skills man. I know how to use thing!" The bloodstained knife glinted in the harsh sunlight.

The savage man paced forward, rage in his eyes. "She had a litter. Three of 'em. And you orphaned them for what? How much is she worth? Was the cash worth risking your life for?"

Jeva continued backing away, panic urging him to run as he stared at the wild man closing in upon him. "I-it was just one stupid cat, man. There's plenty more out there. Please, I'm just doing my job?"

"You call murder a job?"

"Please! Don't kill me! I won't do it again!"

The savage man stopped in his tracks and sheathed his blade. "Oh, I'm not going to kill you". He glanced up at Jeva and nodded towards the savannah just behind the poacher, "They are".

Jeva spun to see a huge male, his golden mane highlighted in the sun, white teeth against black gums and eyes as black as death. He was flanked by four females, each one snarling and spitting. Jeva cried out. His screams ended as huge jaws crushed his neck and head.
Approved. And you should really read all the Secret Six stuff. Simone is a goddess of depravity.

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

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Under the tutilege of Batman and his allies, Tim was allowed to hone his already keen skills as a detective to become a formidable crimefighter as the third Robin. With access to unlimited financial resources and state of the art technology, Tim's new guise as Red Robin is host to an arsenal able to rival his mentor's, adding to his continued growth as a detective, master of disguise and dialect, gymnast, motorcyclist, and hand to hand martial artist. Despite these skills, he has no superhuman powers, relying instead on the very skills that made Batman, Robin, and the rest of the protectors of Gotham City what they were.

Discovering the identities of the original Batman and Robin, a 14 year old Drake reached out to his idol following the tragic death of Jason Todd, the second Robin. At first shunned, Tim soon proved himself worthy of the Robin mantle and became the new Boy Wonder. Fighting alongside Young Justice, and eventually the Teen Titans - with whom he became great friends, Robin fought the good fight and provided years of heroic service while trying to balance a social life in living with his father, Jack Drake. It wasn't until Jack was murdered by the vengeful Captain Boomerang that Tim's youthful outlook was forever changed. Driven to the point of near insanity by the loss, he briefly became The Red Hood before Batman could rekindle his heroism and become Robin once again. But falling in love with Rose Wilson, Ravager, only complicated his life further when they began an affair that would slowly distance Tim from The Titans. Following the death of Batman, Tim briefly became a stand-in Dark Knight before realizing that he couldn't cut it, instead gravitating towards an ex-lover in Stephanie Brown, The Spoiler. After learning that Rose was pregnant, Tim prepared for his new life as a father by abandoning his adolescent role of Robin and looking towards his future as a man, looking for the answers to what that means under the new guise of The Red Robin.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): (Formerly) Young Justice, The Teen Titans, The Dynamic Duo, The Batman Family

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?): My goal this season is to really bring Tim from being the lifelong teenager from the comics and really bringing home the fact that he's become a man, just as much of one as Dick became once he, too, dropped the Robin persona. Expecting a child isn't enough to show that, however, so I'll be showing Tim's progresssions in the other aspects of his life aswell - from working for a living to provide for Rose and the baby, to tackling his own solo cases in Gotham City as Red Robin. He's out to prove that he doesn't need Batman's tutilege to make something of himself, though not nearly in the same rebellious manner as Dick.

As for why I chose him, it was for two reasons. One, I've read the Red Robin ongoing from day one and it's one of my favorites thus far, and two, I like what Cats did with the character and to end Tim's storyline for the RPG's final season seemed like a task worth taking on.

"I'm going to be a dad."

It's not really something that you can grasp the full reality of until you stop yourself and actually say it. The idea of it, especially at my age, is almost too absurd. But it's happening, and there's no turning back now. Rose is eight months along, and I only have weeks - if even that - to enjoy a life without real commitment and responsibility. I feel like I should be overjoyed, I mean... I'm going to have a little boy of my own. To teach and love and watch grow for the rest of my life, until he becomes a man and ventures out onto his own. I don't doubt that he'll be something, however he turns out. He's got the blood of an amazing woman running through his veins, and he'll have some of the best people around to protect him. And yeah, even with everything that's happened, I am happy about that. Terry's going to be the happiest part of my entire life.

I just wish I wasn't thinking this while avoiding a pair of M-16 automatics grazing every car that the cycle passes. Bullets whiz past my head as I kneel myself down to avoid them, the speedometer just now hitting 90 MPH. A car full of Russian underlings for the latest international boss to hit the Gotham weapons' market caught me doing surveillance and they've been chasing me up and down mainstreet all night. I've got no hope of shaking these idiots before they manage to catch up and skin me alive. I guess I should consider myself lucky.

Because I'm not looking to lose them.

After a count of three, I leap off of the Ducati and perform a double backflip at a speed that would probably turn me into sidewalk dressing without practice. The car that was tailing me tries to come to a stop before I land, but it's too late. The soles of my books kick into gear and magnetically graft me to the car's roof, causing them to vocally panic and start firing wildly into the air. I recognize their accents - natives of Czech, possibly from the Prague rackets? Doesn't matter, I don't have time to make observation anymore. These scum are gonna wish they hadn't stepped over international borders by the time I'm done.

Reaching into my belt, I pull out a miniaturized sonic defibrillator and smack it on the hood. Handy little gadget in the case of any faulty vehicle troubles, but put one on a car that's working perfectly fine and you'll end up with some pretty nasty results. As the men below me are just now finding out, by the sound of their motor failing them. The car skids into a circle as I hold on tight, bashing against the streetline parking at top speeds that they can't even control. The driver feverishly tries to slam the brakes, but to no avail. I finally punch through the windshield and toss a grenade into the back seat, just to get their attention. They take the risk and jump out of the car.

Good boys, I tell myself, activating the detonation key and gliding off with my paracape. The car becomes an instant fireball and rockets into the sky, toppling over into a flaming pile of rubble in the distance. Not work that Batman might necessarily approve of, mind you, but better the car than the freeway traffic.

Now. Let's get to know eachother.

Approved if you promise to actually post.

"Ignorant Flash! I'll burn this whole city to the GROU--"

"Flash! I'm gonna give this city a serious case of Frostbi--"

"Waitwaitwait! Before you go off and finish your evil speech, I'm in the middle of a very "heated" arguement back in Central, so if you could wait just one minute... That'd really help."

"Oh uh... Really? Uhh... Okay then..."

"GREAT! Here's a stopwatch. Time me." I said as I handed him the clock and I sped off towards the other half of the twin cities.


6:37 PM... Central City


"Right. Now what was it you were saying earlier, Mick? I had a rather pressing engagement to take care of."

"I'm gonna BURN this city to the GROU--"

"BurnthiscitytothegroundBlahBlahBlahWhatelseis new? Listen, Mick. I'm kinda on the clock here, so let's make this fast shall we?"

"Alright! New record! Now let's see if I can beat it! Starting with you, Cap..."

"Sonuva--"

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name: Andy C.

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Superman, aka Clark Kent and Kal-El (Arial, blue and bold)

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences)

Doomed World.

Desperate Scientists.

Last Survivor.

Kindly Parents.

Powers and Abilities Far Beyond Those of Mortal Men.

Truth.

Justice.

The American Way.

These are the elements that led Kal-El of Krypton to become Superman, the greatest hero the planet Earth has ever known. For years, the Man of Steel has battled threats not only to the city of Metropolis, but the entire world, and indeed, the universe itself. Even at the cost of his own life, he has been unbending in the face of evil, an exemplar of the strength of good men.

Superman's world has been rocked by tragedy, triumph, and revelation recently. His journey to the edge of the universe in an effort to bring back his cousin Kara forced him into a battle across infinite realities with the vengeful spirit of General Zod, before ultimately being brought back into his proper universe by an alliance between Mr. Mxyzptlk and a gathering of Jimmy Olsens from multiple universes to stop the final reckoning of the mad Apokoliptian god Darkseid.

After spending fifty thousand years at the heart of the sun and merging with the Source itself, Superman attained the power to re-create the universe itself, banishing Darkseid into the abyss outside of reality, then giving up that power after being confronted by Batman and Nightwing. However, even though he tried to leave the universe as he found it, Superman has unintentionally altered reality....for example, changing his wife Lois's DNA so she could become pregnant with his child.

As the baby develops and nears birth, he now has to think of the future. How will becoming a father affect his role as a hero and a leader of other heroes? How many more changes did he unknowingly make to the rest of the universe?

And how will the world react when they learn Superman now has an heir?

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable):

The Justice League of America
The 'Superman Family'

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 Superman (again) because I still maintain that he is, far and away, the greatest hero character ever created. His unshakable morality allows for him to either show inspiring solidarity in the worst of times, or put him in tricky situations when he's forced to make a tough decision. And the sheer power and scope of his abilities allows for him to act on a scale that no other superhero can really do. He isn't so much a superhero as he is a mythological figure.

And since this is the final season, I plan on giving him a sendoff that's every bit as grand and sweeping as he deserves, a true 'epic' that lives up to the meaning of the term.

If there's one thing I genuinely don't like about what I do, it's the aftermath, the cleaning up after an enormous crisis like the one that had just passed. It's not repairing all the structural damage that I mind; in fact, part of me has always enjoyed fixing things, big or small. It's seeing the people who were hurt that gets to me.

There's always an amount of triumph mixed in with the tragedy, but to me it's never enough. For every one person who found new courage in the face of ultimate horror, there are a hundred who will never walk again. For every tearful reunion with a missing loved one, there are thousands who learn that their parents or children or husbands or wives won't be coming back. Rebuilding and repairing a flattened city is easy compared to rebuilding a ruined life.

And every one of them, every man who can't dance with his wife because he's confined to a wheelchair now, every child who's been made an orphan, everyone whose homes have been obliterated, all have one thing on their mind when they see me:

"Why didn't you stop this?"

When you can do the things that I can do, when you're as fast and as powerful as I am, you can take every needless death or injury personally. Because even though I can be anywhere on the planet in a hundredth of the time it takes to blink, I can't be in multiple places at once. Which means that it becomes an awful matter of time management, judging whether going out of my way to save one person will endanger even more people somewhere else.

Before I left Earth, there was a protest group called KRYPTONITE, that claimed that people got maimed and killed during attacks like these because I simply didn't care enough to save everyone. The truth of the matter is that I care about everyone, but don't have the luxury of picking favorites. As horrible as it is, in situations like this, people get hurt because I have to choose not to save them.

This time, though, I could have actually done it. I could have erased everything that happened, and prevented all this needless tragedy from ever happening. I had conjoined with the Source, and could literally manipulate everything.

Everything, from the rise and fall of massive intergalactic nations, right down to the DNA structure of a single person in a single spot in time, can be altered if I want it.


Did I do the right thing by letting it all go? Did I even actually leave everything back the way it was? I know that was my conscious intention, but subconsciously, in the back of my head....did I change something without even knowing it?

I wish I had more time to think about these things, but right now I've got work to do.

There's a fire in Osaka that's threatening three or four residential blocks. I extinguish the brunt of it with a gust of Arctic breath, careful not to freeze the people still inside.

It takes a good ten minutes to quell the riots and looters in Moscow.

When rebuilding the slums in Rio de Janeiro, I make it a point to build homes and businesses back better than they were before. Those people have it hard enough as it is; the least I can do is make sure they've got a decent place to live.

In the weeks since the attacks, I've been everywhere there was damage, from the major capitals of the world to tiny little hamlets that aren't even a dot on most maps. Working overtime to set things right, I do everything I can to make up for the fact that I've been gone so long. It's been pretty exhausting, but getting to come home to Lois at the end of each day has been worth it.

Metropolis suffered hardly any damage at all during the invasion. According to sources, the invading aliens had been driven out by a complicated defense grid, shooting them down with energy beams or constructing enormous force-fields to keep them out. I'd been investigating the mysterious power fluctuations along the outskirts of the city, and found some kind of power relay devices, that gather energy from a central source and then distribute it wirelessly through a network that covers the entire city.

Only one man could have pulled off something like that without everyone noticing, and he's been believed dead since the attack of the Dark Alliance. No doubt Lex is actually hiding underground, in some shielded bunker where I can't see him with my X-ray vision or hear his pulse, planning some grand scheme against me. I'll be ready when he makes his move.

Everything, from the rise and fall of massive intergalactic nations, right down to the DNA structure of a single person in a single spot in time, can be altered if I want it.

I may not have used the power of the Source to create the world I wanted, but I've been working almost non-stop to undo the effects of Darkseid's attempt to do the same thing. From one country to the next, never staying in one place for long, not stopping for pictures or interviews, always moving....

...right down to the DNA structure of a single person in a single spot in time....

....And then I hear something that stops me dead in my tracks. Something that, in time, may change the course of the world forever.





"Clark?.........I think I'm pregnant."

The sun was setting over Gotham Memorial Park, and setting over the two of us, laying on the blanket in the middle of it. I play with Babs' red hair absent-mindedly, enjoying the weight of her as she rests her head in my lap, reading her book. The wicker basket I prepared earlier lay open, revealing the leftovers of a veritable feast.

"I've had a wonderful day, Dick," Barbara says

"What can I say, I'm a master planner," I say picking up a strawberry from the hamper.

"Be serious for once!" she admonishes, sticking a bony elbow into my side.

"Hey I was being serious! My planning skills are unparralelled! Look, serious face and everything!" I protest loudly, offering her the strawberry. She smiled, and I feed it to her, wiping the strawberry juice off on the grass.

"Dick..."

"Yes?"

"What were you thinking? I mean...the whole Darkseid thing. Apocalypse now. What were you thinking?" Barbara asks, putting the book down and looking up into my eyes.

"I was...well part of me wasn't thinking. That was the part of me that was still fighting, on instinct. The part of me that was thinking? I was thinking about what a waste it all was...how I wouldn't have accomplished anything if the whole world had ended there. And I was thinking that I love you," I say, pausing for her response.

"I love you too," Babs says softly, taking my hand.

"And I was thinking that I've loved you for a long time now. Maybe always. That this last month or so that we've spent together, finally given in to all the things that I know that we both always felt, that it was the best time of my life. That we could be together, and stay together, without anything changing. That I want you to marry me. That I want us to build a life together, like we could've done years ago. And it's not like we have to stop doing what we do, it's more like we'd be doing it together. Because it means something, and I love you,"

"Wait, what?" Babs asks, her eyebrows shooting up into her hairline.

I take the tiny box out of the hamper and flip it open. Diamond sparkles.
My heart is pounding.

"Marry me,"

A beat.

"Yes,"

We kiss.

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name: Eddie Brock

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Conner Kent / Kon-El / Superboy

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences) If you copy/paste this information from another website, link back to it, or it is considered plagiarism and is not allowed.: Conner has all the powers typical of a Kryptonian under a yellow sun - namely, superstrength, superspeed, flight, invulnerability, heat vision, x-ray vision, superhearing, and arctic breath.

After Superman was killed by Doomsday, a clone was made by Project Cadmus from a combination of Superman and Lex Luthor's DNA. Superboy, as the clone was called, did not originally have all his Kryptonian powers - though he gained them over time. When Superman returned, he condoned the teenage Superboy and named him Kon-El. Superman also arranged for Superboy to live with the Kents under the guise of Conner Kent. Superboy joined the Teen Titans, where he found great friends and more. Despite the hectic events of the past few years - including Conner being manipulated by Deathstroke during the second Dark Alliance attack, as well as being responsible for the paralysis of his girlfriend Wonder Girl - Superboy has remained with the Titans, struggling to live up to the legacy that comes with the 'S' on his chest.

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

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?): If this is going to be the last season, then the Titans need to get their act together for old times' sake - and with MB and Syn as a foundation, they're in position to do just that. I love Superboy because he's all the fun of Superman while also tangling with teenage issues as well as the pressure of living up to Superman's example.

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?: MSN - Mantis_05@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):

It's one of my favorite pictures. As I playfully roll my eyes, Cassie plants a soft kiss on my cheek. In the background, the bright lights of the boardwalk add a finishing touch to a magical evening. Suit unbuttoned and tie loosened, I sit quietly on the edge of my bed, holding the picture in my hands. It came from one of our first dates after 'officially' becoming a couple. Life was simpler back then.

Okay, maybe it wasn't simpler, but we were all so optimistic - maybe even naive - that it didn't matter. There were still wars, people still died, and hearts were still broken. But the Titans, all of us, used to think that everything was going to be okay. We were all sure that we could change the world. Maybe we have, but it's not what we had hoped for. We see now that it was childish to think that we could solve all of the world's problems, but we had certainly hoped for better results.

Now, as we grow older, it's getting progressively harder to keep that mentality. We're reaching a very turbulent time in our lives. Our days as Teen Titans are numbered. Adulthood - and all its subsequent problems - breathes down our neck terrifyingly. We've even begun to outlive our mentors, albeit prematurely. The world we grew up in has turned a cold shoulder to us. Gone are the days of Superman and Batman patting us on the back, assuring us that everything would work out.

We're beginning to see that everything won't work out - not always. Maybe that's a lesson that we're meant to learn, but that doesn't make it any easier. The world is testing us, and it feels increasingly more difficult to succeed. Sure, we have each other, but we really don't. Kara is gone. Bart has withdrawn into himself. Tim is dealing with yet another hardship in his life. Rose is fighting feelings of isolation. Cassie, though she insists otherwise, is burying a pain deep inside her. In fact, Zach seems to be the only one of us left that isn't emotionally scarred beyond all salvation.

Me? I wish I knew where to start. Actually, I know exactly where to start. Cassie. It all begins and ends there. I always promised her that I would never hurt her, and I did just that. If I can't even stop myself from hurting the one person who means the world to me, who's safe? I'm so afraid of spiraling downward into a world where I hurt everyone around me until I'm utterly alone. Then again, solitude seems to be my lot in life. I'm going to outlive them all. That's my greatest fear. I don't deal with it often, but - with all the death - surrounding us, that sad reality rears its head again.

No matter what, I will outlive them all. Tim, Zach, Rose, Cassie, the whole world. They're only human. I don't know how Kal deals with this ever-present threat of being utterly alone. He already knows what that feels like. He's lost one home. What will happen when he loses another? How can he just put on a happy face and kiss Lois goodbye every morning when he knows that one day he'll stand at her funeral? That's why I can never be Superman.

More and more, as life's adversities pound upon me, I remain standing somehow. This prompts everyone to assure me that I'm following in his footsteps. But I know that can't be true. Kal handles everything so well. He carries the weight of the world on his shoulders, and he never complains. Obviously, I can't know what he's thinking, but he doesn't appear to be so wracked with fear and uncertainty as I am. I'm not Superman. I never will be. I have his genes. I bear his symbol. But those alone do not make the man.

I don't know how I got here. I don't know how I became the person, sitting on the edge of his bed, that I am today. What happened to the guy on the boardwalk, his girlfriend's arms around him and a smile on his face? Was that ever me? He seems so faraway now.

"Knock, knock?"

Still holding the picture, I look over my shoulder to see Cassie in the doorway. Like me, she hasn't gotten out of her funeral clothes yet. Somehow, through the mourning colors and the wheelchair, her beauty continues to shine through. It astounds me.

"Whatcha doin'?" Cassie asks casually, looking at my hands.

I place the picture back on my dresser and shrug. "Just thinking," I answer simply. It's so much more than thinking, but I don't want to burden her with my inner feelings. That's my cross to bear.

"I know today was a rough day," Cassie admits. She rolls down to the foot of my bed and sits in her chair next to me. Looking me in the eyes, she continues, "But they're not all going to be like this."

"I know."

"This is just something that we all have to deal with in our own way, y'know?" she asks rhetorically. "And I know 'strong and silent' has always been your style, but I'm here to listen to you."

I close my eyes for a moment. "Thank you," I respond sincerely.

Smiling, Cassie reaches out and takes my hand in hers. We don't need to say anything more. The comfort of our interlaced fingers tells us all we need to know. And just for a fleeting moment, I suddenly feel much better about the future. I realize, looking at Cassie and seeing the genuine concern in her eyes, that I'm not really alone. And for a moment, I think I gain some insight into Kal's head. Sure, Cassie won't be here forever. But she's here now.

And, for what it's worth, that's all I need.

The "World of Heroes" DC RPG Season IX Application

Screen Name: MST3K 4ever

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character): Billy Batson/ Captain Marvel

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences) If you copy/paste this information from another website, link back to it, or it is considered plagiarism and is not allowed. : Orphan Billy Batson wonders an abandoned subway system and meets a wizard who grants him God-Like powers. The wisdom of Solomon. The strength of Hercules. The stamina of Atlas. The Power of Zues. The courage of Achilles. The Speed of Mercury. To use these incredible powers Billy need only speak one word, "SHAZAM!". A bolt of lighting which transforms Billy Batson into the mightest mortal Captain Marvel. Although he is transformed form a teenager into a full-grown man Captain Marvel is still very much an overly optimistic teenager (borderline naive). Billy works for WHIZ media in Fawcett City as a radio reporter but in times of dire need Bily transforms into Captian Marvel.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): He has been known to work with the Justice League upon occasion

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?): My first goal is to play this character is not just a "knock-off" Superman but that he is at heart a boy inside of a man's body and he doesn't fully realize his potential in the battle of good vs. evil. I have played him previously and really enjoyed it and since is the final season (and I never did give him a proper send-off)

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

If you know how to post pictures, please provide a picture of your character you wish to be used for the Character Roster:

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):

Billy Batson checks his digital tape recorder of a recent press conference with Mayor Willingham while enjoying a hot dog on the way back to the WHIZ studio.

Great just need to upload this to the Media Center server for the 5pm newscast and that's another day in the books for Billy Batson ace reporter for WHIZ.

Just then Billy hears gunfire at the 2nd National bank.

He hears someone yell, "Move it you clowns!" As 3 other robbers run into a waiting car.

Billy throws his hot dog away and puts the digtal tape recorder in his pocket.

Holy Moley! End of the day for Billy Batson but just the beginning for Captain Marvel.

He sprints down an alley and sees no one around.

Billy speaks the name, "SHAZAM!"

A lighting bolt strikes Billy transforming him into Captain Marvel.

Marvel takes flight after the speeding car. He flies and land just feet in front of it. As the car approaches Marvel slams his fist upon the hood bringing the car to a skreeching halt!

The four robbers are in stunned silence.

Marvel uses the speed of Mercury and the strength of Hercules to rip the doors off and take the criminals guns' aways from them. He then wraps each one in a door as the police approach.

He says, "Hello officers these are the 4 men who robbed the 2nd National Bank on Main street moments ago. I believe you'll find the money in the car and the fine workers in your metal shop should be able to free these men."

An officer says, "Thanks Cap."

Marvel looks at the robbers and says, "I hope you all will use your time away to reflect upon what you have done, and try to rededicate your lives to making Fawcett City a better place for one and all."

He flies away and one of the robbers asks one of the officers, "Is that moron for real?"

The officer repsonds, "Yep he is, and if I were you I wouldn't say anything against him. Remember that moron just totaled your car and took care of you guys in a matter of seconds. Without even breaking a sweat or breathing heavy. Reflect upon that."

The four robbers look at one another and the streak of red and gold in the Fawcett city skies.

Screen Name:
Bounce

Character you would like to play (please include the color and font you plan on using to portray the character):
Damian Al-Ghul Wayne, a.k.a. Robin (V) / Courier New Black

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences) If you copy/paste this information from another website, link back to it, or it is considered plagiarism and is not allowed.:
Damian Wayne is a normal human with no supernatural powers or abilities (though arguably the ability to call both Supergirl and Donna Troy a harlot to their faces should count for something). Damian has trained in the martial arts from infancy and is in peak physical condition for a 10 year old child, being a proficient combatant able to hold his own against the likes of Timothy Drake. Damian's training has a focus on quickly disabling or killing his opponent, as efforts to subdue a larger opponent often prove far more difficult given Damian's lack of size/weight. Damian possesses a talent for mimicking voices, as well as a high degree of intelligence - particularly toward engineering systems.

In origin, Damian is the product of Talia Al-Ghul raping Bruce Wayne (date rape drugs FTW) and then developing the zygote in an artificial womb while genetically modifying ("purifying") the result of their union. Damian was raised by the League of Assassins, the pawn of two separate power plays by his mother and maternal grandfather. Talia would use Damian as a successor to the Demon's Head, while Ra's Al-Ghul wishes to use Damian's body as a physical resurrection medium.

In WoH continuity, Bruce Wayne rescued Damian from the League of Assassins when he learned of the boy's existence (vice having Talia dump the boy on him for reasons only Grant Morrison could explain). During an attack on the Batcave by the Yellow Lanterns, Damian killed a member of the Sinestro Corps and immediately found himself on his father's bad side. Running away from the Wayne mansion, Damian was discovered/beat down/kidnapped by Jason Todd, with whom the boy has since developed an odd rapport - seeing Todd as both an unwanted brother and also as a reflection of himself or how he images that Bruce sees him.

During the Blackest Night, Damian found himself in a Gotham City with no protector and waged a one-boy war against drug cartels and Black Lanterns - including a Black Lantern Azrael (Jean-Paul Valley). Finding an unconscious Jason Todd, Damian decided that the pair should hide away in one of the Batman's hidden bunkers in Gotham City.

Group your character is aligned with (if applicable):
The Batman Family, League of Assassins (formerly)

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?):
As I picked up Damian last season, elevating him from NPC status, I'll be riding his story to the conclusion of World of Heroes and wrapping up the storyline with Batman and Jason Todd, along with Byrd and Trusty obviously. As for why I chose this character, he's the son of Batman and he's got a mouth on him that rivals Marvel's Deadpool... who could pass up that combination?

Do you have an Instant Messenger? Which one, and what is your screen name?:
MSN lordkoldun (at) live.com

If you know how to post pictures, please provide a picture of your character you wish to be used for the Character Roster (if you do not know how, or do not have a preference, please say so and a default picture shall be picked for you):


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):

Gotham City.

If his father was looking for hell on Earth, then he couldn't have picked a more beautiful location. On the fire escape of a rundown high rise, a young boy ate a dinner of stale cereal and looked out over the city at night while, inside, the child's mother reclined in a daze with the syringe still embedded in her vein. In the alley below members of a gang proved their worth by beating an enfeebled and sick homeless man. Not so far away that he couldn't have not known about the plight of the invalid, a police officer was receiving his weekly pay off from a pimp and negotiating for a test of some his prostitutes services. Sex, drugs, violence, and corruption. A single street in Gotham contained all of these. And Damian... didn't care.

Was he supposed to? The ways of the Batman were shrouded by a morality that ran counter to the ethics that he had been raised with. Justice was ubiquitous, its meaning something different for mother than it was to father. That difference was the defining value of his parents and the enigma between which he had been born. Damian understood his mother's brand of justice or, at least, justice as it was dispensed by the League of Assassins. It was the modern incarnation of that divine right of kings: the ageless creed of might makes right.

Fight crime? He was too royal for this bull.

So why, then, was it the singular preoccupation upon which father was fixated like an addict? It did not appear to be a question with any easy answers. In fact, it seemed a question which only spawned more questions. Damian much preferred the simplicity of something as straightforward as a sword. A sword was easy to understand. It was steel forged and folded with a singular purpose that was made clear by the sharp edge that was its most prominent feature. It was an instrument of death, nothing more and nothing less. A sword weighed neither morality nor ethics, indiscriminate of its victims, secure only in the knowledge that only those with the strength to prevail in combat would emerge victorious. The most incompetent of sword wielders were still dangerously capable of maiming their victims horribly. Skilled combatants could kill with seemingly effortless ability and incredible speed, separating flesh with the same detached demeanor a master chef demonstrated when carving meat from the bone. And the sensation was no less delicious.

The sky was on fire. Around them, and across the globe, there appeared to be a global problem of supernatural proportions. Bursts of green, yellow, red, blue, and violet flashed and burned in brilliant arrays of color. But the problems of life on the street could hardly be bothered to straighten out and live peacefully while watching the fireworks. So it was that, while Batman and the other n'er-do-wells occupied themselves with the more dynamic problem of Rainbow Wars, the petty crime would continue. Murder over the mugging of a wallet with less than twenty bucks in it. The drug deals. The gang wars. The initiation rites of hoodlums who proved their strength through overwhelming force of numbers so they'd never have to rely on their own ineptitude.

The child on the fire escape was tapped on the top of the head by some unseen force, turning his eyes upward in vain before the sound of something landing on the metal grating snapped his head around. A candy bar lay there beside him. Reaching for the chocolate, the child missed the shadow dropping down from the rooftop above and into the alley below.

No, Damian didn't care. But there was no harm in going through the motions if doing such would garner greater understanding of his father or, perhaps, even father's approval. He doubted very much his mother would approve, but if anything that was merely further motivation for him. Even were that not the case, the feeling of power he got from demonstrating his martial superiority over larger opponents was a momentary high that made this exercise almost worth the effort on his part.

The four warriors of Gotham's depraved were sent staggered and sprawling to the filth of the alleyway floor as the shadow lashed out with silent and surprising fury. He landed in a three-point crouch, his form and features masked by the cloak and cowl. Rising to his full height, the small figure stood between the invalid and the assailants. Hints of red and yellow peeked through the front of the cloak, the pommel of a sword looming over one shoulder as unseen eyes veiled behind the hood took in each of the gang members in turn. Depressingly not a single worthy challenge was to be found in any of them. They reeked of cheap alcohol and fear. "tt. Why don't you pick on someone half your size?" the cloaked figure asked mockingly. A thin smile was visible through the darkness overshadowing the face. He was a child and he was toying with them, that much was obvious.

The revelation of the interloper's youth alleviated the gang's fear and replaced it with an over confidence that washed over each of the four in a relief that only fueled their aggressive tendencies. And Damian wouldn't have had it any other way. Unworthy prey was unworthy prey, but there was nothing worse than an opponent paralyzed by fear. That just served to make them uninteresting. This game was much better when both sides were into the action.

"Little ****." Words, brazenly uttered with a contempt that Damian can recognize easily. The closest of the group lunges forward with a deplorably predictable punch. Instead the teenage gangster runs straight into Damian's strike, aimed at soft tissue beneath the sternum in a technique designed not to inflict pain but rather to disrupt the rhythm of the thoracic diaphram. It had a nice element of surprise to it. A moment of shock that was expressed by the look of confusion on the face of the gangster in a silent second of pause before the air rushed out of his lungs. At the same time it was a sleight of hand trick. The gangster's attention on the right hand that had struck him, and his own inability to catch his breath, the teen was oblivious to what was happening to his fist before it was to late. With the muscle spasm, his fingers hand unclenched themselves. Damian seizing hold of the middle finger and hyper-extending it back as he used it as a lever to twist and painfully stretch the muscles of that arm. With a negligible application of force, the wrist snapped with a delightfully aubible pop.

And all of it had occured inside of a few seconds.

The squeal of pain was a message, one that caused the gangsters to take a step back away from the boy. As the one before him dropped to his knees in shock and pain, Damian was aware of another that was manuevering beyond his peripheral vision... with a hand reaching into a pocket. That hand sailed free of its owner a moment later, the small revolver still clutched in the grip. This scream of pain had the benefit of a full lung of air, blood dripping onto the street from the sword the child held.

Father had objected to killing. Dismemberment wasn't killing however. The man was perfectly capable of living without that hand. And it would be a powerful reminder of his crimes, a life sentence that the gangster... or his friends... wouldn't forget. What better criminal deterent?

The remaining two start to flee, their passage blocked by the speed with which the small demon moves through the shadows of the alleyway. A flick of his wrist sends the blood from the blade splattering across the pair. That gets their attention. But no more so than the glint of moonlight reflecting off the edge of the sword. "Get them to a hospital." That was all Damian said. It was all that left remained to be said. With the sentence executed, there was no need for further intervention here. Justice had been served.

Sheathing the blade, Damian adusted the hood of his cloak and turned back to the darkness from which he'd come. He'd taken perhaps three or four steps before he heard the homeless man speak.

"Thank you."

The words stop the child in his tracks, the cape furling about his slight form as he turns to glare back at the invalid in answer. Pathetic. Waiting on a Batman or a Superman to come to the rescue. "**** you," the boy replied coldly. And then vanished.

When it was discovered that the Queen was having a baby, the King grew curious because he knew he couldn't have been the father. Also ironically, while she was pregnant the Queen would find herself followed every so constantly by the sea animals for some bizarre reason; little did she know was because her baby was special and had a bond with them. After the young baby was born (Aquaman), the King saw that he had blonde hair, and immediately ordered that he be left to die on Mercy's Reef for he wore the Curse of Kordax because of his hair color. The baby survived however and grew to be the King of the Sevens Seas, Aquaman.

This is the last Season of this RPG I have grown to care so much about. I have made a mark with Aquaman in this game as I have played him for...geez like 4 Seasons or so? I am here to do his finale for the game before it is rebooted though I am going to try to play things loosely and not have so much solo stuff planned.

The Red Hood, Jason Todd

Powers and Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences):
Trained martial artist, Access to high-caliber weaponry, Advanced student in detection.

Jason Todd was a trouble Gothamite who one night was caught by Batman trying to steal one of the wheels off of the Batmobile. Batman took him under his wing to try to offer the young boy a better life, thinking he could turn things around for him much like he did with his previous ward Dick Grayson. But Jason was arrogant and hotheaded and often times did not fully obey Batman which in the end would lead to his death at the hands of the Joker on the detonator of a ticking time bomb.

Year later, Jason resurfaced in the DCU through unknown means. After executing actions one could call pyschotic, in the end all it did was make Jason's life worse and worse. Currently, and for the past about year and a half, Jason Todd has been the resident of a Psychiatric Hospital. Darkseid pays him a visit, revealing it was him who brought him back to life Seasons ago in the RPG to have him complete a mission for him: to kill Bruce Wayne.

Having his mind and body restored to its prime once again by Darkseid, Jason set out to take Damian Wayne under his wing to turn him against his father to further torture Bruce. Bruce has found out about Jason's "bonding" with his son and has challenged Jason that if he does not give Damian back he will answer to him.

This Season will tell us how the tale ends.

Definently talk to Eddie about the specifics on that one. For multiple reasons.

(Looking forward to you being a Titan. )

Wonder Girl has taken an extended leave of absence following the events of the Dark Alliance II and their aftermath. In a nutshell, Conner was brainwashed into becoming evil, and in a fight with the Titans, he paralyzed Cassie. Conner later made a deal with Neron to trade his powers for Cassie's ability to walk. With the help of Zach Zatara, Conner was able to break the deal, get his powers back, and still restore Cassie's ability to walk. In the meantime, the Titans took on a new member: Powerboy. Powerboy turned out to be a jerk and tried to steal Cassie from Conner. Eventually, Powerboy turned on the team and fought them. After Powerboy was defeated, Cassie revealed to Conner that she was having mixed emotions ever since Conner paralyzed her, and the two broke up. She has since left the Titans to think about things, and the only time she and Conner came into contact was during a fight against the Black Lanterns.

Well, so much for a nutshell.

So high school relationship drama mixed with super powers? I can deal with that.

So as of now she's not part of the Titans, I take it? I'm going to try and read through last season to catch up anyway.

She's not with the Titans, and since she's been an NPC, it was never really established where she went. So all of that is up to you.
