    Easy to say, except that somehow Kyle has a ring, even though DC has said Reign of the Supermen never happened. So Coast City was never destroyed.


    That being said, I do agree with the to just "**** it".

    If you want a new continuity that doesn't quite jive with the dcnu, than go for it. That's what I'm thinking for a character I'm considering.


    Is it wrong that I went from 0 characters with no intention to play to 3 potential characters?

    Superman still died just everything "didn't happen the same way". So your post is incorrect. DC has explained poorly that anything that seems to conflict still happened just "in a different way to where it works". Wanting us to not worry about anything or think about it unless a writer chooses to reference it in detail. :o

    That's how I plan to tackle things, for the most part. Even if DC does something that contradicts my stuff, then **** it.

    Look, I'm going to put it in the most blatant terms imaginable - F*** DC. F*** 'em. They're not going to give us many of the details anytime soon because they have their writers doing their own stuff, so there's no reason to owe anything to them beyond the initial 1-2 issue established continuity. Past events? Fill in the blanks yourself. DC hasn't been clear about it, they're leaving us with no choice. Say this happened, this happened, this happened, ect, ect. without so much as a flying **** as to what the actual continuity is in DC's mind. Because chances are from what I've seen, they don't even know that right now. Absolutely no thought was put into that stuff when the comics' relaunch was given the go-ahead, they were just concerned with getting new readers and telling new stories under an incredibly restrictive timeline.

    This is our payback. :argh:

    That's the way I feel with one of my characters choices. I don't like the dcnu changes, so I'd just ignore the parts I don't like and replace it with the old continuity parts.

    Yea, two of my choices is slightly dependent on what they do with one of the characters in the DCnU...and if I want to deem something being in cannon since in the smallest way the DCnU means that PART of one of the character's history may not be in cannon.

    Dunno. But partially because of this reasoning I may not apply until either the end of the weekend or even the weekend after.

    Well, personal canon can be used if you simply don't think things work a certain way, Mad Love for example is a story that i think should have been put as canon

    The "World's Finest" DC RPG Application


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

    Brief Origin (provide at least two sentences): Orphaned when his parents were murdered by mobsters, young acrobat Dick Grayson was taken in by billionaire Bruce Wayne.

    Before long, Bruce revealed to the youngster that he was, in fact, the mysterious Batman of Gotham City. Eager to help fight crime, Dick became the first Robin, Boy wonder.

    After years of fighting by Batman's side, Dick had a falling out with his mentor. Venturing to Bludhaven, he forged his own identity; Nightwing.

    Since then, Dick has mended his relationship with his adoptive father and the two now fight side by side as equals, keeping Gotham safe. Dick recently took up the mantle of the Batman for a year, during Bruce's disappearance, but has since slipped back into his old Nightwing garb.

    Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): Batman Inc, the Bat-family.

    Explain what you plan to do with the character you've chosen and why you've chosen this character: Nightwing is my favorite superhero of all time, yet I've never played him. Now is as good a chance as any, and I guess my plan is to have some fun. Hopefully, I'll write some good stories and, along with Keys and Supergirl (and, without a doubt, more to come), keep the Bat-family going strong in the game.


    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):

    [​IMG]

    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):

    Being Batman for a whole year taught me some things. See, all the way back when I was Robin up until a couple of years ago, I was impatient. Whenever Bruce and I were skulking in the shadows, stalking criminals from afar, I'd be chomping at the bit to hurl myself into the fray.

    Bruce could wait for hours if he needed to, just watching. Me? Not so much.

    "Show yourself, coward!"

    Then I had to be Batman. And in doing so, I developed a real appreciation for the art of...well, scaring the crap out of people.

    I've taken down all but two of the thugs guarding the weapons shipment. Bruce got the intel off some pusher he snagged a couple of days back. We don't know where it's coming from but we know something big is going down.

    "FIGHT ME LIKE A MAN!" one of them screams at the shadows. He's swearing like crazy, they both are. They're shaking so bad they can hardly hold their guns.

    Now comes the part I really like.

    I land with a thud behind the bigger of the two. His head snaps back, his gun a second later. "It's the Bat!" he shouts.

    "Close, but no cigar." I quip, as my knee connects with his stomach. I spin, my elbow slamming into his face.

    "Nightwing!" the other yells out as he unleashes a hail of bullets. I somersault out of harm's way fine, but he came awful close to shooting his friend full of holes. How's that for honor among thieves?

    "We have a winner!"

    The crook tries to spot me but before he can, an escrima stick comes flying out of the shadow. It breaks his hand in two places, his gun making a dull thud on the ground. The man falls to his knees and lets out a howl.

    "Now, let's you and I talk about this shipment of yours.."

    If you are saying that I can make the storyline "Justice" cannon, than that is different. Because I can't. If something was never cannon before it won't be cannon now just because of what is said above.

    Right on.

    To be honest, I prefer the blue one and wish they had kept it. But since it's red now, I'm expecting a better pool of new usable images from the comics.

    Even if someone else applies, we won't accept them over you.

    It doesn't matter if we're actually fair, only that we appear to be fair.
