    You just want to give Hulk a GL ring, right?

    I don't know about the history of the character and his players in OU, but if it's anything like Hulk's previous players in the Marvel game, the problem seemed to come from people just not having any story ideas for him beyond "Hulk joins/starts a fight and smashes stuff." I was having a lot of fun just trying new things with his personalities and Bruce Banner trying to make a new man out of himself and rejoining the Avengers. In fact, my go-to theme throughout my run with the character was to focus on Banner as the main character to develop. Hulk smashing things was almost inconsequential, except in the occasional fight scene, of course.

    I like this. Make it so.

    Amalgam.:dry:

    :barf:

    Also, if anyone can actually do the Hulk justice, it'll be epic.

    I'd love to see the new ideas OU could create.

    Reading the first season of OU was a blast, even the stuff before I joined. Things like the Hulk killing Dick Grayson's parents. Bruce Wayne, Elektra, and Matt Murdock training together as teenagers under Stick. Tony Stark engaged to Dinah Lance (and her putting up with his ******** about as much as she ever put up with Ollie's).


    My fear is that, once the initial couple of season of creating combined origins wears off, the game might start dying off again.

    At this point it's worth a try, IMO. At this point it's great if we can get two successful seasons in.

    Yeah, a game doesn't have to last forever. The point is that we just have fun for as long as it stays afloat, and if that's over six months of regular playthrough, I consider the RPG a success.

    Here's a quick "Story So Far". Not the best thing I've ever done, but figured I'd throw something together. Let me know what you guys think and if anything should be added/changed.

    Also, name idea: "Justice and Avengers: The One Universe RPG"

    Not a bad foundation. Could use more blending, but we can leave that up to the players.

    But I'm wondering if we should realign the timeline a bit. Maybe have the JSA and other old-timers that people might want fight in Vietnam instead of WWII. (Cap would still work in WWII).

    Maybe change the Skrull-Kree war to the Thanagar-Kree, Skrull-Rann, or something to that effect to give it that combined universe flare

    I like the idea of the JSA working n the 60's and 70's, but I don't know. I just picture them being in that time period of the 40's and 50's. Plus, superheros mixing with Nam and the time period reminds me too much of Watchmen.

    The JSAers are pushing their 90's now. I think an update is due.

    Yea I really think the JSA is such a WWII thing. And I was planning on having the vast majority of the JSA be dead, having only a few like Ted, Jay, and Alan alive since the comics explain how they survive.

    And I'll change up the Skrull war stuff when I'm not on my iPhone.

    Made some edits to the Story so far, changing the Skrull-Kree to the Skrull-Thanagar War and changed around some awkward wording in it.

    Left the JSA in WWII for now until we decide what we wanna do there.

    Especially since this is fresh cannon and I never fully read all of the old OU cannon, I could be in. I could have something in mind for Blackbolt. This is not a definite yes, though.

    ^^^Awesome.

    Once World's Finest gets off the ground I'll work on a game app and we can get rolling.

    Pretty excited.

    I once had this idea that Namor and the original android Human-Torch could have lived in the Victorian Era instead of the 30s, what do you guys think? They allways reminded me more of Jules Vernes book and the league of extraordinary adventures
