the World is Earth just slightly more advanced Tech-wise Meta-humans (people with super-powers) have been around since WWII when Hitler created his Übermensch and superpowers don't all come from the same source there's Science: Technology: Mutation: Natural: Magic:
Cool beans, that narrows down my character choices a bit, I've got about three I'm deciding between unless I think of more.
Tell me, any of you guys read worm? It's a story about superheroes (and villains) and really rather good (like, I think it's still the number one webfiction). It's very long, but it's definitely worth a read. https://parahumans.wordpress.com/2011/06/11/1-1/
I don't know how much you've thought this through, but how is our little team going to be united? I'm guessing we were originally independent heroes who banded together, rather than being friends before we got our powers, but what is it draws us together? Is there some sort of crisis that requires all of us? Has the government offered us funding to work together? Are we a corporate-sponsored team?
Could we GET corporate sponsorship? 'Cause some of my concepts could be pretty mercenary, and I like the idea of having corporate sponsorship...
More than anything, I'm wondering if we're working within or outside the law. If we're outside it, I'd have to rethink one of my concepts (joined the team in lieu of a jail sentence for reckless endangerment). It'd also raise questions about where we get all our wonderful toys and costumes from. Also, do we have secret identities? I know they're a staple of superhero works, but they do have some problems when you think about them (it's really easy for criminals to find them out, and when they do the police won't know to protect our families 'cause they're not allowed to investigate)
Should just warn you, if you're trying to contact the mods to get a title change, be prepared for a long wait. Neither Sweeney nor Archi have been on this year, and I know from IRL friendship that Harland's very busy right now, and has probably forgotten he moderates this place.
