Default Superhero NES

C'mon guys. Justice League? Marvel Alliance? We can do better. Why? Because we're crazy, whacked-out writers who have got the best imaginations ever.

RULES:
I know, I know. Rules suck. But if you don't lay down some ground rules, the whole thing blows up in your face:

1. No fighting. And I mean petty fights that clog up the thread and draw attention away from the story. i.e: "Your superhero is a wimp!" "Your face is a wimp!" "Is not!" "Your mom!" and so on and so forth. We're all fairly reasonable people, no need for pettiness.

2. Keep your powers fairly realistic. Like if you wanna have a hero that can shoot jellybeans out of their nose, fine by me. However, if you have a super-flying-radioactive-laser-shooting-robot-ninja-pirate-fairy-vampire-werewolf-invisible-stretchy-uber-strong hero that fires flaming-green-sparkling-cherry-flavored-jellybeans from their nose, that's a bit over the top. This also brings me to the next rule

3. Stick to your power. You cannot change or add to your power. For example, if your hero has xray vision, and suddenly a truck is hurtled at you, your hero can't suddenly acquire laser eyes unless you have specified it earlier.

4. You are not a god. Take a beating like a man. You're not invincible. Even Superman got the living daylights kicked out of him sometimes. If you are The Amazing Un-Touchable Man I will kick you out. Yes, you read that right. You will be kicked out. No one likes a perfect little hero. It's inhuman.

5. Yes, you're allowed to be a villain. I know some people on here have an extra dose of evil. And we need antagonists.

6. <EDIT> IF and only IF it adds to the story, then you can die and create a new character if you wish. But don't make it too confusing. Otherwise it all just goes downhill. </EDIT>

7. I will be an Mod. Settle arguments if they arise, help keep it on topic, and assist when necessary. Think of Dr. Xavier from X-Men. I'm him. Not literally. Just in the sense of watching over everything.

8. Please be logical. Not too logical. Just enough so that it doesn't get too bizarre.

9. Have fun!

ENTRY FORM EXAMPLE:
This is my hero, I'm giving you an example of what it should look like:

NAME:
Dr. Simmons
LOCATION: Watch Tower
POWER: Power over time. i.e: Freezing time, rewinding, speeding up etc.
APPEARANCE: Short cropped light brown hair, Ray Bans sunglasses, blue jeans, gray turtle neck, black trench coat, heavy boots for kicking people out.
about: Dr. Simmons watches over and cares for the Superheroes of the city. She also keeps an eye on the bad guys to make sure they don't get too crazy. She only intervenes when absolutely necessary and is happy to answer any questions a new hero might have.
BACK STORY: No one knows where the Doc came from. And she's not about to tell you.


So. Anyone game?

*about not more than one character ever, that'll make it stupid though after a while. Because everyone will want to hold onto their characters for the entire thing. They'll make the story worse...no one will die when they're supposed to die. When someone 'dies' we'll just have to say he barely survived and lived again even if he was like incinerated. We should do one character at a time. we cant do dramatic deaths and stuff (everyone loves dramatic deaths) without leavin the NES...*

Name: Enigma (real name Vayne, no one knows that's his real name but his most trusted)
Location: He lives in an average apartment in the City. His office is the only room that suggests anything abnormal.
Powers: Can control darkness and shadow, can control the conscience of people (not mind control, too cheap, but like your conscience says what he wants it to say, so that it's very hard but NOT impossible not to follow his will)
Appearance: Young, handsome, dark mysterious eyes, long black hair, wears a black coat all the time, tall, muscular.
Personality/Alignment: Neutral mostly, kinda like an antihero. Cunning, intelligent, sarcastic, vengeful, doesn't reveal much about himself to many, loyal, will protect anyone who he cares about. Problem is he doesn't care about many people...takes alot to earn his trust.
Back Story: He's basically the same person in the normal and the superhero world. No costume or anything. Most people just pass him over as some shy guy with a coat and don't look at him anymore. In that way he's really stealthy.
Doesn't trust many because of past life. If you gain his trust you have it for life though. No one knows much about him, but his powers were there from birth.

My character came from watching too much Batman(Serpentis reminds me of Poison Ivy somewhat) some inspiration from TFA(one character reminds me of her) and my love of poisonous animals. I want a scorpion and I had a boa constrictor, a rattlesnake, and an albino corn snake. She is also from my new book I'm writing, so I thought this would be a good NES to add on to her character. It gives me ideas.

Thats really cool, dragongirl.
I based mine off of a Marvel character. X-men, i think. I believe she went by Kitty, but I'm not sure. Thought it would be fun to make one of my many characters successful! lol.

Ok then . . . oh, can I be a part-villain part-hero person? Like a reluctant hero with greedy intentions?

Name: Neida
Location: She's a traveler. As long as there's water, she can be there. But her home as a normal person is in the City (well, hey, that's where everyone else is).
Power: If you haven't guessed already, she has control over the forces of water. She is young, and she's just starting to touch on what it truly means to have control over one of four major elements. Everyday, she discovers a new way to use her talent.
Personality: Hey, she's young. She's a little wild at times, but for the most part she's level-headed. If you are desperately in need of her services she might help you, but at the end of the day she's only looking out for herself.
Appearance: Wavy, long brown hair with light blue and green highlights. One eye is blue, one is green. Her nose is very tiny, but in a cute kind of way (this has to do with breathing underwater and not really needing the extra air passageway). There are gills on each side of her neck, but you can't see them unless she's breathing underwater. She always wears blue or green shirts over jeans, with no shoes.
Back Story: She was raised with her little half-sister in a foster home. Her mom died in a car accident when she was two, and her dad was arrested for drunk driving when she was five. Her sister, Annabel, was her dad's second wife's daughter. (His second wife also died, but from cancer) At age eighteen, Neida was emancipated and became the legal guardian of Annabel. (*oh yeah. By the way, Elfin-Maiden, I know you said only one character, but does that include minor characters?) They live in a modest, one story house. During the day, Neida works at at a daycare.

*hmmm ... I'm going to have to think about this ... But I will most certainly be - a VILLAIN! *evil laugh* But there is a small chance that I could be a hero - very small chance*
