"The arc of the moral universe is long and bends towards justice – but sometimes it needs a little help along the way."

The Michael Holt we meet at the start of this game is still reeling from the death of his wife and child. In an effort to distract himself from the sense of loss he feels he throws himself headlong into his work but now finds it deeply unsatisfying. “Normal” life cannot resume without his family – so in its place of his old life, he crafts a new one. Holt decides to use his considerable talents for good by exposing rich and powerful people that believe their means protect them from being brought to justice. Before long, his aptitude for corporate espionage registers on Checkmate’s radar and Holt strikes up something of a partnership with King Faraday – who is more than happy to indulge Holt’s seemingly endless desire to place himself in harm’s way for a good cause.

At first it appears that Holt is able to turn down any job he pleases, but soon it becomes clear that his relationship with Checkmate is not quite as free from obligations as it seems.

Mister Terrific is a fantastic character and one that I don’t think gets anywhere near as much love as he deserves. During the second season of Ultimate One Universe, I used a teenaged (and slightly rougher around the edges) Holt as the de facto leader of the Future Foundation and had hoped, had that game gone on long enough, to have him eventually "replace" Reed and lead an in-universe version of the Titans.

Obviously this time around the take is slightly more grounded. Some of my favourite concepts have been espionage-related: a long time ago I played King Faraday and really enjoyed it and later played a version of Bucky as Captain America that was more spy than superhero. It’s an interesting dynamic and gives you access to lots of different parts of the world. I very much see this Holt being quite an aggressively proactive participant in in-game affairs, and hope to have him strike up surprising partnerships with other characters and pop up in unexpected places.

I'm struggling to see the downside of starting the game sooner? It enables those that want to post sooner the ability to do so. If you're not ready by Friday, you don't miss out on anything because the game has been open for one more day and other people have been able to post.
Okay, here's my fifth attempt!



Honestly, I've been inspired by the number of people that have put in for characters after other people posted their sheets – and even more so, those that have persevered and applied for second and third choice characters when they've missed out on their first choice. Well done everyone.
It's not quite Martha Wayne but it's not nothing.

You know what, fuck it:



Real talk: If I say I'm trying, and struggling, to write stuff for Lucifer, would that be held against me? I know it would be judged, but would it be held against me? I have an idea I think is going to stick.


Do whatever you need to do, man. Who cares if you've had a change of heart? You're not getting paid to do this shit.
Well, would you look at that? 20 likes...


Why doesn't this website have a dislike button?

Ten likes and I'll do it.


Wait, wait, did I say ten? I clearly meant to say fifteen. You fucking people had better not make me do this.
