OOC IS HERE
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.
but, fury..the old war hound he is, realized a rather crucial thing. the troubles the world faced Now, were too broad and grand for a team like the avengers to protect alone. so, in secret he's putting together another team. a no holds-barred, black ops unit..to fight the battles that the new avengers can't or would refuse to. and fury swears, that these men and woman, from all walks of life..be they heroes, villains, or anything inbetween..he'd forge them into the last line of defence. Shield's Secret warriors.
a lone ship was drifting into the dock of new York. curiously, though this ship was marked as a cargo ship for a history museum, seemingly no one was aboard. it was as though it's crew had up and vanished. but evidence remained. blood stains and dents on the ship told of some sort of struggle. all the cargo was there, every exhibit still intact. so, despite the investigation into what happened to the crew, the cargo was moved to it's new home. if only they knew that the "statue" of Europe's fabled azure knight was no statue, they would've sunk that ship then and there...
from the place in the museum that he had been placed, nightmare gazed at those who passed him by. he kept still, intending to keep up the charade until no one was around. then, he'd make his move and get out to the city at large. "bah..i don't see why you just don't leap up and slaughter anyone in our path..these humans are but cattle after all...besides, we need souls. why not theirs?" the voice of inferno echoed in nightmare's head. he had to suppress the urge to roll his eyes "i'm using this plan to draw less attention. even though i could survive having our armor destroyed, i'm not too keen on risking it this early. as for our need to feed, i'll find some sort of criminal operation. supposedly those are rampant around here." he replied to the spirit. hearing nothing else, he continued waiting.
