The year of 2099 was a rough one for what used to be the United States. Now simply just five larger areas in North America, Alchemax basically owned the northeastern States. Stark-Fujikawa owned a large portion out west. There was even an area somewhere around the Great Lakes now called the 'Bad Lands' where hundreds of savage Hulk-like creatures roamed free. Spiderman has fought against the crooked government and corporate influence of Alchemax over the mega-city now called Nueva York for several months now. Once addicted to a drug called 'rapture' before becoming a superpowered hero, Miguel O'Hara was shocked to learn the drug was really taking a toll on the people of downtown. He got a lead on the guy manufacturing the drug, called the Chemist, but when Miguel approached the vile human being he was caught off guard by the grotesque creatures the Chemist had morphed ordinary people into. When Spiderman tried time and again to shut down the Chemist' operation, the one time renowned doctor helped several of Spiderman's deadliest enemies escape prison.
Now the cannibalistic Vulture is putting his gang back together. Mutagen began killing several people in the downtown area for their sickness and abnormalities. Flipside was now posing as Spiderman's friend once again. The Scorpion of this era was also now on the loose and seemingly targeting his father and CEO of Alchemax, Tyler Stone.
1.) No back-to-back posting.
2.) PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND SET-UPS!!
3.) Make sense. If we can't make heads or tails of your posts they're likely to get skipped over.
4.) Get permission before using another player's character in your posts if it involves changing the scene or making actions. Everybody will take beatings in this game in battle however, so don't get pissed if you get punched or blasted into a wall by the bad guys! Namely me or the Co-GM controlling the badguys...
5.) Problems with the game or players should be sent directly to me or the Co-GM through PM's. I don't want a bunch of bickering in the OOC. And I don't particularly like it when some random argument costs the game players and story potential. So don't be dicks to each other, just send your concerns to us.
6.) Abandoned characters will be used as NPC's or killed off within the context of the story.
7.) “I was waiting for [insert player/character] to make a move” is not how this game is played.
8.) There is no rule #8.
9.) My word is law.
10.) Obey the law.
11.) In the event that I'm offline for any period of time, the Co-GM [none atm] will take control and HIS/HER word will then be law.
Nueva York, Manhattan....
The man with the flaming skull for a face could run and leap across Manhattan's skyline in less than twenty minutes. He leaped from flying cars and in the back of his head thought of the new Mario Bros Legacy theme. However he wasn't fighting angry turtles or rescuing princesses, and he'd avoid sewers as much as possible being a bit of a germaphobe when not in costume. Aside from all of Spiderman's rogues running around, there were rumors of a new kingpin in the underworld. The new hero didn't come all the way from Brooklyn for rumors though, he was looking for Spiderman. Mutagen was spotted in Brooklyn several times over the last few days. Jorah was hoping to get some insight on how to handle him. Dodging Public Eye wasn't much of a problem, even with the matchstick appearance. When Blaze finally saw what he thought was Spiderman swinging around a neon skyscraper he gave chase.
"Spiderman... HEY! Slow down!" Blaze screamed leaping from building to flying cars.
"SPIDERMAN?!? WHERE?" the red and blue clad Flipside screamed doing a complete one eighty.
"Dammit.... first shapeshifting guys with animal powers in Downtown and now Terminator-Spidey? This just isn't my week..." Blaze thought moving upward in the Uptown of Manhattan leading towards the now gigantic Times Square.
"First time I've been back here since my community service was over. Thankfully I know the street level area like the back of my robotic left hand..." Blaze thought turning and firing a blast of hard light flames at the android assailant.
"You're the guy who tried blowing up Alchemax... time for Spidey's Best Bud to take you down ghost-face!" Flipside screamed dodging the blast of fire and leaping towards the new hero shooting a webline and zipping across the neon skyline.
Across town, near the Brooklyn Bridge area....
A large man of African descent stalks a man in the slums with the large bridge visible in the background. Nobody really knows the man called Mutagen behind the red mask he now wears. Nobody knows the loss he's had to go through, or what drove him mad. The man with the physical abnormality would soon know his rage. Mutagen will kill anyone who is sick or deformed that could stain the gene pool for humans.
