Rules are thus 1: must describe how it is different from the 616 2: must give a history of how it got this way 3: must have a problem the Exiles must solve before they can leave 4: do something... interesting. mine.... MONARCH! okay, in this world all the world is run by a single person who, by the majority, is called "The Monarch". most peoplelove him, but there are a few who think of him as a despot, including a terrorist cell called the "Freedom Now" lead by Hawkeye, operating out of LA, and using most of the Runaways. The entire world now has a futuristic feel to it due to the fact that Monarch, Reed Richards, and Tony Stark banded together to find solutions for the worlds problems. It turns out the world went of course long ago... when a woman died in a way she wasn't supposed to. her name was Gwen Stacy, she was supposed to die at the hands of the Green Goblin, but in this world she did not. she died at the hands of a normal every day, no-name mugger. her beloved, Peter Parker was enraged that couldn't save the woman he loved from a simple mugger. he went two weeks without leaving his apartment, when he did, he had had an apifany. the heroes are usless because they are seperated by their own petty differences. sure every now and then they work together, but they never know what each other is doing until after its done. thus Peter began the great initiative to gather all the willing super-humans on the planet into an organization called Hazardous Event Response Organization. it didn't take him long to recruit all the heroes on earth, and even reform a few criminals, such as Doc. Ock. and Dr. Doom. Then came Galactus. they repelled him, but Galactus returned, stronger and angrier. this time he didn't just want to devour Earth, he wanted to torture it. he destroyed ever capitol city on the planet before the heroes could even organize. with Spider-Man in the lead they lead the second charch and this time, Galactus didn't walk away. he was destroyedonce and for all. with a world in chaos, they set out to bring order. the people of the world looked to the heroes for their leadership...they looked to Spider-Man, the one who had brought them together. and so he was forced into the lead. he became the reluctant ruler of the world. as the years wear on new threats surface themselves. Polaris and her Acolytes become a major threat as well as the man called Xorn. what truly devastates the world are the Apocalypse Wars. Each year Peter sits on the throne people, ordinary civilian look to him more and more for his guidance. each year he offers to step down and set up democracies and republics where the people govern themselves, and each year at least 80 percent demand he remain their monarch. the Apocalypse Wars finally end ten months before the Exiles arrive. the problem... the mistake in this Universe... The Monarch, Peter, Spider-Man, in three months time will fall into a deep depression. three months later he will take his own life by an intentional overdose of sleeping pills. rumors fly as the populous, so dependant on the Monarch, refuses to accept suicide or natural death. a civil war breaks out that lasts two years resulting in the death of almost half the worlds population. the twist... The Tallus won't reveal their mission till they have been there a while. till, they have left the Monarch alone wiht one of their own... the mission... they must give the Monarch a Queen.
