I don't understand what I did? Outside of my post-high casual writing style.

I'm prone to getting defensive over Moon Knight.

It's not you, it's me.

Really shitty post up. Rushed and not as detailed as it should have been. But, I was nearing the deadline and I'm gonna go ahead and blame the fever I've got. Even though I could have gotten this done days before I ever got sick if I wasn't a slacker.

@Byrd Man - The conclusion to the Snapshot Killer arc was everything I've come to expect from you. Tight, punchy action interlaced with snappy dialogue and quick descriptions that manage to vividly paint the scene with minimal adjectives. Rereading it knowing you're continuing Gotham Noir now changes thing a bit since I can now say I'm excited to see where the characters go, but in particular, I'm interested in the journey of 'Shotgun Max'.

@Star Lord - Reading this post since I haven't read it since the sheet was originally submitted, I have to say I already find James more sympathetic than Wonder Woman. Maybe it's because he's human, maybe it's because his situation is more relatable, but I find the emotions driving this post more authentic and real. While the post itself isn't long, it does set up the classic Punisher story although through a fairly fresh perspective. I'm not familiar with either James or Cole so I expect there won't be too many retreads of Frank's story. Knowing some of what you're planning, I'm interested to see how it gets tied together and why exactly Cole was murdered.

@The Bork Lazer - An interesting tease of Black Lightning starts off this wrap-up. I'd previously been under the impression that Virgil didn't know who his real father was or what he had done. Evidently, this had been a wrong assumption on my part. Reading this post, I'm reminded that Virgil had his arm broken in the previous arc and I'm starting to believe that of all our characters, he has probably taken some of the worst beatings and injuries. More so because as far as I can infer, his abilities neither protect him from electricity nor help heal. Will be interested to see just how Black Lightning figures into Season Two and what it was that drove him from home. I imagine Virgil will find himself paying for the sins of his father.

@webboysurf - Short and sweet but full of content. First off, we're re-introduced to Tony Stark. Here, Tony is still full of arrogance and whiskey. He's been developing suits, however, having reached the Mark 7 since Season One. The big surprise of this post comes in the form of Count Vertigo. Never let anyone tell you that having your hand in two properties can be optimized because you've done so here by making a traditional Green Arrow foe serve Tony a slice of humble pie. The post naturally ends on a cliffhanger, after all, you wanted us enticed to look forward to the next one. Which I, of course, am.

@IceHeart - And Supergirl has entered Season Two. I always love posts that connect to the greater world and here we're not only reminded of what's going on with Wonder Woman but that Supergirl has grown up idolizing the legendary hero. Kara's life seems to be ever moving forward, as unstoppable as a locomotive. Now a university student, she seems to be keeping busy and hey, look at that! She has a new friend in the form of Lucy Lane. Will be interesting to see what role Lucy ultimately plays here. A tease of a villain rounds out the post, and I can't help but be a tad suspicious of the description of the Lostboys. Could there be foul play involved with this concert? Guess we'll find out next post!

@HenryJonesJr - I've always loved a good ensemble and what you've got crafted here is among the best of them. Rocket and Groot are a perfect emulation of their MCU counterparts and I honestly wouldn't have them any other way. Thor too seems to be a bit more of his MCU self although he feels balanced with the comic book iterations. Hawk is more cynical and pragmatic than any version I've seen or read but it works to have her be the only sane man above the Hasselhoff. Which leaves Quill as the reluctant heart of the team. Quill in this post gave me some real Malcolm Reynolds vibes and well, you simply can't go wrong making me think of Firefly. In fact a lot of the set up felt like I was watching an episode of Firefly. Definitely invested in the next post.

@Byrd Man - I don't know how you do it. You use so few words but there's so much to digest between them. The flashback vividly paints the type of neighbourhood that the Maddox Family lives in. We see into their world, we see the type of people they are and we see how this case is starting to unfold. A jump back into the present treats us to more of John's personality and most importantly, his love of Oreos. Much like John's slice of Oreo Pie, this post left me satisfied but hungering for more.

@Inkarnate - Mareena presents a very different change of pace from your previous character. Where Kara was taken away from her world, Mareena is fully immersed in Atlantis. Here we get a taste of Atlantian society that is decidedly Greek. Mentions of Olympians and gladiators help paint the picture. Young and headstrong, Mareena definitely is an interesting character and will be curious to see how much of her rather limited canon you lean on and how much you need to create to ensure she has a solid story to tell.

@Retired - The Titans can't seem to stay out of trouble long enough to enjoy a simple cookie. Not that Eli partakes, guess he doesn't have a Super Soldier's metabolism to keep the calories at bay. Of the four, I really find that Starfire shines in this post and Gar's comedic bit at the end was a nice touch. Can't say I'm fond of Kitty and Eli sort of just seems to be there at the moment. Either way, interested to find out exactly what's going on in the secret labs.

@Byrd Man - Lots to digest in this post. The introduction of Vicki Vale is a rather large part of this post but equally so is the expansion of Max's background. We see quite a bit of him here and now the pressure of command is sitting squarely on his shoulders. I'm thinking he's going to break, especially since it seems as though he's suffering from PTSD. Either way, another post well done.

@HenryJonesJr - More hints towards who Booster might be. They have memories of both Tony and Steve, not that either of those help eliminate too many possibilities but the mystery of her identity is definitely a driving force behind my interest. Interesting to see that Booster is clearly being manipulated. Should note here though that the use of Patrick Dugan might be problematic as he's part of @DocTachyon's supporting cast for Seven Soldiers. So the two of you might want to reach out to one another.

@Pacifista - Poor Bruce. Guy never seems to get a break and the big guy never seems to help when it would be convenient. This post is a wonderful example of the consequences that befall Bruce when the Hulk takes over. Bruce finds himself in the middle of nowhere and is forced to navigate the harsh conditions himself when Hulk could have returned him to civilization in a couple of bounds. Either way, the characterization is tight in this post. Definitely enjoying your work.

@Inkarnate - And so Atlantis has been tied into the larger plots at work. It would seem the ever-watchful Vulko realized that a certain alien had been removed from its cryogenic oceanic slumber and placed on the surface world. So did ARGUS kill Orin? I guess we'll find out soon enough. We get some more Mareena in this post but the former was definitely the meat of the post in my opinion. That said the latter half helps to solidify Mareena as a character and emphasize her characterizations. Will be interested to see what Vulko tells her and what he chooses to withhold.

When I was a kid, the first Blue Beetle that I knew was Jaime Reyes. I liked him a lot because he had a really neat gimmick with the whole Scarab thing going on. But I had no idea about Ted Kord, who I now adore thoroughly. Jaime is a cool kid. But Ted was a real hero, complete with a completely self sacrificing loyalty to his friends and allies. He was uncompromising on his principles and was willing to do what was necessary to save the day even though he deserved better personally. Reading his death was the first time that a comic book made me cry. I was, like, fifteen. Man, that was a great story. Great character.

Keep on keepin' on, @Hound55.

POST CHECK-IN:

Good morning everyone,

We've got a lot of people on the weekly check-in this week, myself included. For some of you, I realize it's a busy time of year and I won't punish you for that.

For anyone else, just a reminder that a post is only required once every fourteen days, I do however ping anyone at the day marker just to give them a bit of a reminder. If you do, however, go twenty-one days without posting, your character will be moved to inactive and you'll be required to reapply before resuming posting. When reaccepted, you are expected to post once every week for three weeks to ensure you're committed to the RP and aren't just squatting on a character.
