About twenty years ago, crime became almost unstoppable around the world. Average citizens began becoming heroes in order to combat this problem. Training day in and day out. They were born with a few high end attributes as far as physical abilities go, but they were no better than any human could be. Their justice tended toward an anti-hero approach as they didn't have the means to just grab a criminal by the back of his neck and carry him to jail. The people felt that while these heroes were necessary, they were evil. The various criminal organizations around the world were only slightly intimidated, but were constantly finding ways to slip by undetected. Due to a series of events, these organizations actually began the creation of super humans. These beings began to pop up all over the world, and began dishing out the true hero form of justice. Tensions began to build between the anti-hero humans, and the heroes as public opinion began to favor the heroes for their less violent approach. They even went as far as promising that the heroes not need pay for any damage done while crime fighting, and turned the human charges into double to compensate. After years of heroes saving the day, police began to issue arrest warrants for all human vigilantes. Many began going out to of their way to stop the super humans at that point. The humans have called a meeting between all heroes in the city of Westridge unknowing that the super humans have done the same. As things aren't getting better in the criminal world, will the two sides be able to work together, or will they start fighting between themselves and forget their true intentions?
As a human you would be someone along the lines of Green Arrow, Red Hood, Batman, Arsenal, and the like. No powers. But you have technology and physical fitness on your side.
As a superhuman, you are allowed to choose one power (within reason and approved by me first).
Now, not all humans must be anti-heroes. There would be a few who tried to follow the "true hero code". Of course I would like this to be a small fraction.
Same goes for the super humans. Some can be anti-heroes.
As for rules,
1. My word is law.
2. If you want to be a superhuman I HAVE to approve your power first.
3. No explicit romance. While romance is encouraged, do not cyber on this thread, the IC, or any related thread. (PM it if you must)
4. There will be a fair amount of violence, but I would prefer descriptions be kept to a minimum
5. Work together if you start an IC fight. Everybody can't win all the time
6. If you start an OOC fight, take it to PMs. We don't need to see that
7. Most important rule, Bacon (put that somewhere in your CS. I'll even accept it in personality or bio)
8. All human heroes are disliked, and should be treated as such while costumed in public
9. Have as much fun with this as you can
Age: (must be over 18)
Power: (if super human)
Weapon of choice: (if human)
Alignment: (1 anti hero for every 2 heroes who are super. 1 hero for every 2 anti heroes who are human.)
Appearance in costume:
Out of costume:
Arch Nemesis: (totally optional but I thought it might be cool)
This RP will mainly take place in the fictional city of Westrdige. We may to go other locations later, but stick with being here for now.
Here's some ideas of what it looks like:
Greenish stuff is human territory, red stuff is superhuman territory.
