Quote from: inkybus on July 06, 2023, 04:22:38 PMI'm interested, though I would play an OC. Do OCs have to have the powers of a canon character or can players come up with a powerset they'd like their characters to be able to use?
Quote from: inkybus on July 07, 2023, 04:29:26 PMI understand. Then, perhaps, the power I have in mind might be alright to field. Do you allow only powers that are good for fighting or are characters that take a hopeful purely supportive role allowed?Edit: I ask because some supers RPs are, reasonably, there to be punchy, action-oriented and episodic oriented. I have a character that I want to play but she wouldn't be suited for a game where the goal is the action against vaudevillian foes that do not shift the status-quo of the setting.The super I have in mind would be capable of the following things:A biokineticist who has an innate understanding and can modify the biology of any carbon lifeform that is alive and she touches. If she maintains bare skin touch with the living lifeform for five seconds, she can figure out how they work innately in three seconds and staunch the bleeding from an amputated limb, stabilizing the wound in the next couple of seconds. She is only able to manipulate organic mass that she touches, so if she heals someone she will draw on fat reserves and muscles from elsewhere in the body. She can use dead organic matter, for example ribs of a pig, to regrow an arm of someone who has not enough body mass left in their body, as if the patient had eaten the pig ribs. Depending on the size of the modifications she wants to enact, it will take more or less time: her healing body manipulation is not instant.However, she can't enact any modifications on her own body. Due to her power, she is immune to diseases and parasites while she is conscious since she can manipulate them like any other carbon lifeform she touches.As a result, she wouldn't fit in with a whole punch-y community, since she is a squishy human who is more about that healing life. Though healing is just one of the many things she can do with biokinesis.

Quote from: pdragon on July 07, 2023, 07:04:31 PMextra picsName: Glenn StacyHero Name: Spider-Man (sometimes called Spider-Boy with varying levels of affection or mockery)Age: 19Size: 5'6 165lbsPowers-Wallcrawling-Superhuman Strength-Superhuman Speed-Superhuman Stamina-Superhuman Durability-Superhuman Agility-Superhuman Equilibrium-Superhuman Reflexes-Spider-Sense-Natural Web ShootersPersonality: laid back, sarcastic, dramatic/showy, secretly self conscious, hot headed when the tables get turned on him. Backstory: Glenn Stacy was born in Queens, New York to George and Helen Stacy. Following his mother's death, he was raised by George alone. Glenn's free spirit and "girly" interests often put him at odds with the type of values his father, a beat cop, worked to instill. After his mother died George tried extra hard to both bond with his son and instill in him a traditional "manliness" that he felt his mother had coddled him from. While Glenn bounced hard off of most sports, he was drawn to professional wrestling, much to his father's relief, though more for the pageantry and over the top characters than any sport aspects. It also never dawned on his father that watching big beefy men wrestling around half naked with each other might not have the effect on his son that he intended. Through his school life Glenn was unsurprisingly bullied for his effeminate looks and nerdy interests. However he strangely enough found kinship with a boy by the name of Peter Parker: a near cliché popular jock, captain of the wrestling team, and closeted drama geek. The two bonded over their shared interests, and Peter used his influence to make sure Glenn avoided the worst of the bullying. Glenn eventually developed feelings for Peter, though never got a chance to confess them. One day on a field trip to a biogenetics labs, Glenn was bitten by a radioactive spider, instilling him with superhuman abilities. Glenn did what any right minded teenager would do, and immediately sought to become a super hero. Entrusting his secret to none other than his friend Peter, the two set out to create his very own crime fighting persona: Spider-Man, a high flying hero themed after the masked luchadores they were such huge fans of. For a time things went relatively smoothly, besides all the usual hiccups of being a superhero, however over time his relationship with Peter began to strain. Gone was their old dynamic where Glenn was weak and Peter was his protector. The shift of power, a desire to join his friend as a hero, and a growing sense of jealousy and inferiority eventually drove Peter to sneak into the lab and try to find a spider of his own. He succeeded, but unfortunately the spider that bit him was from a different experiment than the one that had bitten Glenn. It did instill him with superhuman powers, but at the cost of mutating him into a horrifying monster that came to be known as Man-Spider. With the transformation came an uncontrollable frenzy and Glenn, not knowing it was Peter, was forced to fight him to protect the city. Having never fought a foe as strong as this before, Glenn was forced to tap into the upper limits of his strength, something he had tried hard to hold back when fighting regular criminals. However in the end he over exerted himself, putting too much power into his final strike and accidentally killing Man-Spider, only to watch in horror as he reverted back to Peter Parker. Glenn learned the hard way that with great power came great responsibility, and he has sworn to never take another life. The trauma of that night also ended up forming a mental block in Glenn's head that has prevented him from tapping into his full strength ever since.
