The Next Avengers - Out Of Character
This is my own take on the Marvel universe, taking place after the Avengers movie, but not any of the Phase 2 movies.
That battle, all those years ago…. That was the end of the world. This. This is the new world.
The battle of New York was the turning point in the history of the world. Not only were superheroes fully introduced into the world, but also supervillains. Some showed their colors soon after the great battle, others waited patiently; waiting for the right time to strike. The year is 2022, a whole decade after the formation of the assembly of The Avengers. Much has happened since then, more superheroes have surfaced, some of them making their own teams and groups to fend off the rising villains. Since then, crime has lowered by a great amount. The most of it being stopped by the Avengers; The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, they have kept the world safe, but have slowly been faltering. The world has moved on, and although greatly appreciated, they are being left behind. Suddenly, the earth is under a new threat, and the most frightening thing out it is that no one knows what it is. Multiple attacks around the world have been recorded, and have been reported as “To chaotic to be organized.” Without need in the past couple years, the Avengers has been disbanded. They need to assemble once more. From the start of the announcement, Steve Rodgers knew that this was going to be a bad idea for all of them. Although usually being the counterpart in this situation, Tony agreed with him. Bruce had gone off to do better things with his newly found free time, Thor was much too busy with having to rule over Asguard, Hawkeye and Black Widow left the team, seeing that they were only human compared to the others. Steve took the free time to fully adjust to living in the modern age, where he couldn’t before due to having to work and train all of the time. Tony and Pepper were running Stark industries, but had offered to help the next group of avengers.
The original team agreed to assemble once more, to find the next group that would take their place, the Next avengers.
So I understand that a lot of you have been waiting all day for me to get the OOC up and running. Just a couple of rules to go through, and a couple of rules in relation to the Characters that you guys have already seem to have made.
- Standard rules apply, but the punishment will be associated with what you have done, not just one universal punishment to go with everything.
- NO GODMODDING. PERIOD.
- Respect the other RPers that are also participating in this, it's simple.
- If you want to discuss something relating to the overall plot, please contact me about it, and I'll discuss it with my Co-GMs.
- Collab posts are welcomed, but please don't have every other post be a collab. (IE the use of titanpad, or things relative.)
- Please allow two to three posts to pass before you post again, this is mainly just so that no one rushes ahead.
Now for the Character rules. These ones will only apply for when someone is creating a new character.
- Including myself, there will only be six to seven on the avengers faction, but other characters can work with them on occasion. (as a temporary alliace if the other character is more villainous.)
- I don't want re-imaginings of already made characters. Also I am not accepting any realtion to the avengers. (So no, Stark can't be your characters [insert family relative title here] Some re-imagined characters I will allow, but I will tell you if a change needs to be made.)
- You don't have to be a hero. there can also be villains, vigilantes, or whatever wandering around, but they all have to form a bottom line of an agreement when it comes to fighting the big guys (the villains created/needed for the plot.)
Occupation: (The everyday job, the time when they aren't fighting for JUSTICE!)
Appearance: (Both everyday and as the Alias)
History: (Optional to be revealed during RP)
Personality: (Overall personality, Likes/Dislikes, things like that)
Faction: (Me and my Co-GMs will decide this, as the availability to be an avenger is limited. if you want to be an avenger, please put POSSIBLE AVENGER right here, and if not? just put like VILLAIN, MERCENARY, or whatever your character is.)
This may be updated in the future, and please update it promptly.

Character sheet is up! Please update it if I make any changes to it.

"IT" being your character sheet
u cheeky cunt
I'll go ahead and reserve this specific spot for tomorrow.
Jacquer 'Jack' Rutherford
People just call him Beast, because that's what he is in battle...
Jacquer works as a security guard for a local bar called 'The Drunken Horsemen'.
11 feet 9 inches
1, 078 lbs
He can also lift over 2000 million hotdogs. I mean, look at them muscles!
Enhanced Strength - Beast was blessed...or cursed with tremendous strength ever since he was a baby. Over the years, this power has only grown and grown exponentially. While he doesn't know the true limit of his strength, as he hasn't found anything worthwhile to test it out on, Beast knows that he can chuck cars and trucks without an inch of resistance/stress, and that he could completely destroy and cave in a concrete hut/warehouse with a few angry, ape-like punches, grapples, and kicks ((He was really angry at that time!)). This will grow over the course of the RP, as will his other powers.
Enhanced Durability/Stamina - While not the fastest of the bunch, Beast has the superhuman ability to run for hours-upon hours on end without tiring out at all. This allows him to out-last his opponents. Due to this boost in stamina, his skin is hardened and calloused, more similar to leather. Beast can take a shit-load of damage without staggering, and still be ready for more, hence the term 'durability'.His speed is what disguides this, but brute force is fun, yeh?
Enhanced Jumping Ability/Primal Instincts - As written before, Beast isn't even close to being the fastest. Yet, natural-born instincts gives him a nice does of reaction-speed to catch any speedy buggers, and his long/beefy leg muscles allows him to cover ground a lot faster then a smaller human being. He capitalizes on this by using his powerful legs to jump large distances with incredible speed and power, along with the momentum advantages.
Rage. Pure and simple. - Rage. The angrier he gets, the stronger he is. Anger raises his strength levels, and generally makes him more stronger the angrier he gets. When, in a battle, he's calm, or as calm as he normally is, his strength is at it's normal wavelength. As he gets hit, gets more annoyed, and generally rages, he get's even more stronger. Makes sense?
While most of it will be in the IC, I'll give you a small overview. ((To Be Written/Revealed.))
Beast grew up angry. Obviously, he was picked on for his brutish looks and abnormal size. Everyone in highschool made fun of him, so what did he do? He channeled it all into rage. The counselor wanted nothing to do with him, so he had to keep it somewhere. Thus began his aggressive, 'tough-love' personality. He normally talks in short-worded sentences that portrayed everything he was feeling at that moment, which is usually anger or annoyance. His words are blunt and unforgiving, just like Beast himself. People often mistake his short-worded sentences as idiocy. It's not. Despite being bigger then most, he still studied at school and got tutoring sessions whenever he felt like he was falling behind. He just expresses himself more....bluntly, I guess you could say. Don't get me wrong. Despite his mean, aggressive, and fuck-shit-up tactics, Beast keeps most of his 'nicey-smisey' emotions locked up. He'll save the innocents, of course, as he believes himself to be a sort of hero.
I'd like to nominate him for a possible Avenger, but if it's not possible then he could possibly make his own mini squad? Or a vigilante.

Name: Daniel Wright
Alias: The Bat
Although Daniel has no real powers he has strained his body to it's peak potential through rigorous training and far surpasses the skills of a normal man. He is also very smart and is always inventing new gadgets so he can keep on par with the heroes with powers. He is also trained in most fighting styles and with most weapons, improvised and professional.
History: Daniel was born to a poor family living in the southern states of America. He had very little growing up and had even less when his parents died in a car accident. He was sent to live with his reclusive uncle who was deemed to have a massive fortune he inherited from both his and Daniel's father's dad. At first Daniel resented the man. He had never been in contact with him and never even appeared at the funeral of his parents.
Overtime though he began to like the man more and more. He invested a lot of money in turning Daniel into the perfect soldier, in both mind, spirit and body. It turns out that the uncle was a vigilante when he was in his prime but stopped after receiving a gunshot wound to the stomach. His dream was to find an apprentice and turn them into what he should have been. Daniel was the apprentice. He sent Daniel all around the world to different teachers who taught him different techniques and fighting methods. Eventually he was battle hardened and ready to fight crime. His uncle could die happy. Daniel has been in the hero business for quite a few years now and has gained interest in the Avengers.
Personality: Daniel is the strong silent type. He prefers to work alone but is not reluctant to work in a team if the team isn't comprised of idiots. He prefers the night to the day and prefers stealth and calculated moves to in the open fighting and random attacks.
Faction: I'd prefer him to be a vigilante at the very start but a short while in be a possible avenger.
Unity of the swords
Name: Neo pheonix
Occupation: runs a bio-mechanical technology firm known as phoenix enterprises as a public front
Powers/Abilities: darkness, a being comprised of evil and malice given form, has no one true form. Being as his "body" is a mass of nanobots, he can shape and form himself to whatever form he pleases. he uses this to shapeshift, making any number of armaments from the shadows that make up his body. having been spawned from the genius intellect of tech guru Neo phoenix has gifted him with great intelligence and an aptitude for technology beyond the norm.
however, being made of nanobots he is vulnerable to particularly strong EMPs or electrical attacks.
these will shut down all non-vital functions and effectively revert him to his base form of neo pheonix until such a time that he can reboot other functions. assuming the identity and mannerisms of Neo has also presented the risk of said personality resuming control. in darkness's opinion, this risk is very, very bad. mainly because of the fact that since he came from Neo, the possibility of having some piece of his mind latched into himself is very real. after all, he did it to Neo. so what says he couldn't return the favor?
History: darkness began existence as the suppressed, sociopathic alternate personality of world renowned technology guru and philanthropist Neo pheonix.
for years, he lay suppressed, until an accident with an experimental technology meant to allow the mind to exist outside of a body to facilitate mind uploading to computers allowed him to escape.
knowing that his freedom would be short lived had he tried to assume extended control of Neo's body, he used him to create a hive of liquid metal nanobots to upload himself to.
after this was completed, he killed Neo and assumed his Identity intent on using his freedom to create an empire of fear, where the only rule would be what the strong would make.
Personality: he's evil, plain and simple. a manipulative bastard, who is all to willing to twist the truth and trust of those around him to better serve him. he'll put on a nice act, at least for long as he needs to in order to better serve his own ends.
Faction: Villain, or mercenary depending on what benefits him more. it's of note that through his guise of neo pheonix, he does a lot of charitable work. though whatever he does, he does it only for his own benefit, and not for any other reason. though i may have His neo pheonix guise develop into a split, heroic personality later on.

The ideas are already forming in my head from just these two characters..... Oh, and just so you know, I'm going to have Samuel L Jackson play Nick Fury in this, just because I think it'd be even more awesome.

Oh, and both of you are in, but as of the moment, a possible threat in the eyes of shield.
