@officaz No. Look, it's not that daunting. All you have to write is a list of your supporting cast. can be as simple as:

"Mary-Jane Watson: Peter's next door neighbour growing up and best friend for quite some time. The Jackpot."

It just let's us know who your character turns to when in a jam or wants to see your character dead or bloodied.

Hey, this looks pretty interesting! Since the RPs I've been involved in have stalled out or just died, I'd like to submit an application for this one. Not sure if I can make all that incredible word art and formatting, but I can try.

Since we're picking 'superheroes' from all across fiction, what about someone who was written only a year after Spider-Man was, has saved the universe multiple times, has an iconic look and cast, and his stories have been in almost every single medium there is?

@Cassowarysaur It'll be a bit tricky... But i am legit curious to see how this pans out. Maybe the Doctor becomes one of the founding members of A.R.M.O.R. down the line.

Sounds good @mattmanganon! It's a bit out there, but as a big fan of Dr Who I think that there's a lot of room to have fun with him interacting with the different heroes. He's fundamentally different to almost every single one's approach to solving danger and conflict; that's bound to introduce a lot of drama. And given how different this world is because of this amalgamation, the Doctor having a lasting effect throughout the period, even from the very beginning, might make sense. But I'm happy to discuss this further with you - I'll decide on which Doctor I'll be using soon.

Really not my place to say this, but I had the need to express my excitement on how well the Doctor would fit in this kind of Roleplay. Thirteen different faces and personalities to choose from and a limitless amount of companions...you can literally handpick your unique Tardis Team

@Cassowarysaur My vote would go to either Nine, Twelve or the underappreciated Eight.

@Nightwing95 I'd vote for 3, 5 or 7 being that they were the ones who knew how to kick a little ass if needbe.

Also, I'm going to be putting up the IC today, although, due to troubles at work, it might not be until this evening.

Oh, the Machiavellian 7 would be magnificent. But if you want a fighter you could always go for the War Doctor.

I'll start writing my IC on Monday, given I'm quite preoccupied right now. But I'll probably go with a Doctor that I'm more familiar with in New Who, probably 12 right after he loses Clara, his memories, and spends a lot of time by himself - allowing some interesting ways to incorporate some of the Doctor's allies and enemies.

Name: Joe Gilmore
Hero Name: Marshal Law
Known Alias': Screaming Eagle (formerly), The Vet (formerly), Hero Hunter, Fascist Thug
Age: 32
Powers:
Marshall Law is a cyborg. His cybernetics provide for him among other things:
- Super Strength. Strong enough to lift a car over his head and throw it 20 feet.
- Minor healing factor
- Marshal Law doesn't feel pain, allowing him to continue longer than a normal person.
Equipment:
- Marshal Law has a vast array of guns with extremely large calibers. Necessary against the targets he hunts. Besides regular slugs, his guns can fire a variety of special ammo, such as smart bullets and fear gas.
- Other weapons range from simple knives all the way to bazookas, depending on the situation
- Hoverbike in the shape of an eagle. Room for partners and captures
Appearance:
Like other superhero costumes, Marshal Law's is full of symbolism. It is militaristic and dark in color, giving an impression of a hard man of authority with no mercy inside (which is true at least when it comes to supers). It has many threatening and violent slogans written in, and contains depictions of wounds, such as the red "razor slashes" on cheeks and the throat. His right arm is left exposed and wrapped in barbed wire, a mark of his guilt for previous actions in war.

Joe is a relatively good looking middle-aged man with black hair, black eyes and chiseled facial features. His boy is muscular and contains no scars, thanks to his healing factor.
Known Affiliations: San Francisco Police Department, Cadmus




Character Basis: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshal_Law_(comics)
List of Reimagined traits:
- Instead of South America, "the Zone" Joe Gilmore was sent to is in the Middle East, and instead of communists, the war was against terrorism.
- San Francisco is still whole, there was no earthquake
- There is no compound V or mass production of super-humans. Officially superhuman production is illegal.
- Vought-American Consolidated is doesn't produce superheroes of their own, though it is rumored that they are doing illegal superpower experiments. Instead Vought-American sponsors existing superheroes in exchange for merchandising.
- In the comics the superhero group Public Spirit belonged to was called Jesus League of America, but I changed it to Ultramarine Corps. People however call it Jesus League derogatorily due to many overtly religious members of the group.
- Public Spirit is a natural metahuman, while Homelander is another kryptonian.
Story Overview:


Sample Post: - Marshal Law arrived to director Amanda Waller's office in full gear. The portly woman was holding a pad.

"What's the mission, Ma'am?" He asked.

"Right down to business as always," Waller noted, smiling "Good. You will be going to Kansas this time."

An assistant dropped a bunch of files and pictures on the desk, revealing images of destroyed buildings and brutally murdered people, along with a strange symbol that looked like two Bs mirrored.

Law took a picture depicting the symbol. "Reminds me of that symbol in a manga I read once. Berserk, I think it was called. Violent stuff."

"Well, so is this mission" Waller continued, "Whoever left these signs also killed several inhabitants of the small town of Brightburn. We don't know the target's identity, but according to autopsies they're strong, fly and are the size of a pre-teen."

"Sounds like Superman's evil son" Law quipped, though everyone stayed quiet.

"Now, I know you're not eager to fight children, but-" Waller started, but Law interrupted her quickly.

"No need to worry about that, Ma'am" He ensured, "This child is not a sidekick, corrupted by the actual superhero. These murders are determined, uninhibited and premeditated. And if these reports hold true, it is the first case of a metahuman in the area. This child is a superhero, doing everything out of free will and must be stopped before more people die."

Marshal Law put the papers back on the table and turned his eyes on Waller.

"When shall I leave?"

@Chiro Several things:

1) Please post a little more with the sample post. Not really enough to get an idea of how he works. A little dialogue would go a long way. Even if it's just him talking with Waller about how much they fucking hate super's.
2) San Francisco is still there, please don't hit it with an Earthquake.
3) I don't want to tell you how to build your character or how to run your story, but i don't like the wider reaching implications of Vought-American's creating actual superheroes introduces. I would appreciate it if this wasn't an open thing that they did. Maybe it's still in the prototype phases and they are still trying to work out the kinks in these formula's. It's just that if there is a company actually mass producing superheroes, then it has FAR reaching implications that other player's can't really choose to ignore if they want.
4) I also quite like the idea of The Zone in this setting, the only real thing that i want is for it to have been a black-ops thing perpetrated by CADMUS, known to the public only in rumours and paranoid conspiracies online. Most don't even believe it happened, because the world governments covered it up. Again, just trying to avoid implications that other's cannot ignore or might impose on their stories.

Apart from that, i love it, fit's in very nicely.

@Nightwing95@Master Bruce

I have made a 0th post and the IC is now open, sorry to Bruce for not including MUCH about Spider-Man, but i wasn't entirely sure what he had actually done in continuity yet, so i didn't want to make him fight a Supervillain that you didn't want to bring in until later.

@Sanity43217@Cassowarysaur@officaz

Just a quick note to advise that you hurry up with your CS, being that the IC is now open.

@Hillan

Just wondering, are you even still interested?

Working on my CS now! Excited to push the Doctor into this world, but it may take a bit to get right.

All right.

Shall I repost the sheet with modifications or will editing suffice?

Matt, I can do a "medium" post every time, but my grammar can be sloppy, but look like style to me, and then also I will veer off topic some times. They're not huge issues, but I wanted to hear if you can work with me. I do my best to not pollute threads, so I do rinse and dry my ideas(posts)

p.s. I am working on the CS now. Allies/Enemies, Teams/Organizations, and Sample

@officaz Dude, as far as i am concerned, the important thing is that everyone is having fun. As for post length, it is entirely up to you. I mean, as far as i'm concerned, so long as you remember to have capitals at the beginning of a sentance and a name, use comma's and full-stops and have at least enough to make your story coherent, then you do you and i will do my best to give as much constructive critisism on your posts as i can.
