America's Got Powers! [Superhero Contest]
« on: September 12, 2013, 12:54:25 AM »

2018
San Francisco, California. 
The object hovered over the city for the briefest of moments, just a fraction of a second. It seemed to hang in the air, to defy gravity for a split second. It was an orb of the purest, brightest blue light. After halting, it flashed, seemed to explode. It bathed much of the city in it's pale light before dropping to the ground, revealing itself to be some kind of strange crystal - though now it was devoid of any light, inner or outer. It was a simple hunk of grey rock. It's miracle had been spent. People, seemingly at random, were granted unique super powers. The riots that followed lasted days. Given incredible power, many of these people turned to crime. After all, the only thing keeping many ordinary folk from killing and stealing is fear; fear of not being able to do it, of getting caught, of being punished. With powers that defy physics and the very laws of nature, some took to a life of crime. Others attempted to become ad hoc superheroes. Yet this path is also fraught with peril; some died in their attempts at doing the right thing. Not everyone is combat trained, not everyone has the mental fortitude, the stamina, the skills, the moral compass to be a bringer of justice.

After the events, the government rounded up all those that showed signs of powers. They enrolled them into the Titan Project, a program designed to teach these individuals to sharpen their powers and to use them responsibly. It was an unmitigated disaster. The training was brutal and much like being in the military. Only two entrants from the first batch of candidates actually ended up making the grade. Lina Lyons, a former police officer highly decorated for her valor and bravery in the line of duty was the first. She became a paragon of justice named HercuLina. Gifted with super strength, super durability, and the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound. She stands as a beacon of righteousness and is and example to all of what a hero should be. The other passing candidate was Wade Welles, Navy EOD specialist, a smoker, frequent drinker, a brash and slightly arrogant woman who's Navy training has been enhanced with super durability and the ability to control fire.

And thus America had it's first two Titans. Real superheroes.

But The Titan Program needed work. It needed a less brutal training regimen to help accommodate the ordinary men and women that were given these gifts. It needed better ways to weed out poor candidates than written tests and obstacle courses. It needed... funding. California, the mecca of creativity that it is, came up with an idea. A reality show. America could watch these new supers training, living together, competing against one another for these coveted spots on the Titans. Three open slots for America's first super team. Ten 'contestants' in this new batch and only one winner gets a coveted spot. Who would win? Who would lose? Who would sleep together? Who would betray who? America would soon find out, all on live TV.

What I'm Looking For
A small group of players to play this new batch of contestants on this 'Super Hero Reality Show'. All the heroes will be living together and, much like any other reality TV show, there will be periodic contests. Winners get immunity from being voted out. At the end of several events, the overall winner will be decided. We do not have to have ten players - we can NPC some, or just cut down the number of contestants. First, you'll need to pick some powers by clicking this link twice - http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Random - You're on the honor system here! Don't cherry pick! Go with whatever you get and be creative with it. I'm just looking for creative writers that will be able to dedicate some time to this RP. You must be able to post frequently. If you think you have too much on your plate as is, please do not apply. That said, here's a template and example profile for Wade Welles, one of the NPC's.

TITAN PROJECT CANDIDATE - CLASSIFIED FILE
NAME: Wade Welles
AGE: 24
SEX:  Female
HEIGHT: 5' 11"
BODY TYPE: Athletic

ALPHA POWER: Fire Manipulation (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Fire_Manipulation) - Wade possesses the ability to control, generate, and resist heat and flames on a level yet matched by any candidate put through training by the Titan Project. Most users have difficulty controlling the ability, but Wade seems a natural. Her power generates flames by exciting the very atoms in an object or the air, causing it to burst into flames.

BETA POWER: Supernaturally Dense Tissue (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Supernaturally_Dense_Tissue) - While Welles' Fire Manipulation seems to give her some resistance to heat and flames, most of it comes from her supernaturally dense tissue. Her thicker skin, muscles, and tissue make her extremely resilient to damage and conventional weaponry has limited effect on her. As a side-effect, she is much heavier than her slim frame would imply.

BIO: Wade Welles was born to Amanda and Joseph Welles. She seems to have had an ordinary childhood, for the most part. Her father, now deceased, was a naval officer of some distinction. Her mother died of surgical complications shortly after Wade was born. With little supervision, Wade stopped attending school and turned to petty crime. She seems to have run with the wrong crowd for quite some time and has been convicted of two counts of robbery and one count of grand theft auto. Her father eventually convinced her to join the Navy, which she seemed to take to. Miss Welles excelled in her new environment and took to combat training quite quickly. She eventually joined the EOD and served for quite some time before being dishonorably discharged for disobeying orders. While she seems to rebel against authority and projects a rough exterior, she seems to be eager to help others in need - if only for the chance to get into a fight.

PERSONALITY: Welles exibits a brash personality. She is self-confident bordering on arrogant. She will take the first chance to jump into conflict and her combat training often lets her come out on top. While she enjoys fighting and action, she also seems to enjoy her down time quite a bit. When she gets into these lazy moods she can be hard to motivate. She acts rough, but has a bigger heart than she lets on.

NAME: Jibran "Jibbie" Hazhari
AGE: 20
SEX: Male
HEIGHT: 6'5"
BODY TYPE: skinny

ALPHA POWER: Unfettered body (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Unfettered_Body) - Jibran's primary power is so far one of the most extreme found, for all intents and purposes he will endure till the end of time. To Jibran, and the military's, knowledge nothing can harm Jibran, and his cells seems to just endure, not changing. Unbeknownst to Jibran though, his greatest weakness is Unholy and demonic forces, things that tie directly into his Beta Power. He can still be trapped and contained, since he can't break free through physical strength

BETA POWER: Divine Force Manipulation (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Divine_Force_Manipulation) - Jibran is able to manipulate divine and holy forces to his bidding, though so far all he's been able to do is to induce peace in others, and when frightened he's been able to use blasts of holy energy, but so far it's not something he has concious control of. He needs further training to be able to control his powers.

BIO: Jibran Hazhari was born to a pair of Iranian immigrants, he was orphaned at an early age after his parents died in a car accident. Jibran grew up at an orphanage where he was schooled by the very devout Mrs. Jennings, who tried to make Jibran believe in god, which Jibran resisted at every turn. at the age of 10 Jibran was adopted by a pair of atheist Lawyers, James and Margeret McNeil, who he actually began calling mom and dad. Jibran was always at the top of his class and found great interest in science and literature. When the powers were distributed to people, Jibran was running from a mugger who was trying to steal his wallet, falling over Jibran panicked and unleashed his holy powers right in front of his neighbourhood church. As Jibran grew to be able to induce peace and calm in others, the neighbourhood priest, called the Madman by Jibran, proclaimed that he must be the second coming of the lord, something that annoyed Jibran immensely. When it was discovered by the government that Jibran had powers he was taken away, but not easily as he enjoyed doing whatever he wanted, he used his powers on the first few people who tried taking him away, inducing such physical and mental peace in them they let go of him, but ultimately he saw he had little choice.

PERSONALITY: Jibran is a quiet and calm individual, something that fits well with his powers. He hates being the center of attention, preferring to just be left alone to study. He was never a big fan of sports as he couldn't see the point. He tries his hardest to help others when they need it and stop conflict before it gets out of hand, previously through reason and logical arguments, now through the combined efforts of his wits and powers.

TITAN PROJECT CANDIDATE - CLASSIFIED FILE

NAME: Rex McGail
AGE: 22
SEX:  Male
HEIGHT: 6' 6"
BODY TYPE: Slim (but when feeding or killed someone he is becoming muscular)

ALPHA POWER: Life-Force Absorption (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Life-Force_Absorption/Gallery) Rex can absorb and feed on Life-Force by any creature..human's are easier then titans cause titans have way more Life-Force then normal humans but given enough time then Rex can fully drain his target and kill him/her in the progress but if he doesn't feed or absorb energy in a long term then he grows weak and pale.

BETA POWER: Death Empowerment (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Death_Empowerment) Death Empowerment gives Rex physical strength from the deaths he causes so his Life-Force Absorption is a perfect power to give him even more strength in fights.

BIO: Born and left by the steps of a church a priest took him in and raised him as his own as Rex spend most of his life in church he got very religious and always wears a cross around his neck praying from time to time...Rex also learned how to take care of himself by getting into street fights to get some money and now has learned many counter moves to use on a opponent... but as Rex turned 20 the priest was very sick and was certainly going to die he asked Rex to take care of the church but Rex said no...Then the priest final request was for Rex to kill him and end his life he asked this because he was tired and didn't want to wait until he died a slow and painfull death so Rex killed his own 'father like figure' then he realized that the death of the priest gave him power, confronted by this power he left the church...Rex was always in the mood for a fight but is afraid to kill his opponents in the progress.

PERSONALITY: Rex's personality shows that he accepts death and thinks everyone else should too he doesn't hesitate to jump into a fight because of the power it gives him and his absorb power usually gives him a advantage in a fight making his opponent make stupid mistakes and he counters hard. He is also a loner type not liking many people around him cause of the need to feed on power, and sometimes need time to himself...

NAME: Sabrina Starr                                                 
AGE:  25 
SEX: Female                                     
HEIGHT:  5”7
BODY TYPE: Athletic

ALPHA POWER:  Bat physiology (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Bat_Physiology)Sables Philology give the abilities to not only  hear and smell better than a normal human being but also enhanced physical abilities of  Agility balance and the ability to climb walls a rock face with hare claws. She also has wings that don’t allow her to fly but to glide when jumping from a high location and to give her boost when jumping

BETA POWER: Aerokinetic Blade Construction ( http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Aerokinetic_Blade_Construction)  this power allows sable to form any type of blade  out of air. She can form as many at 6 throwing knives or just one broadsword like blade and everything in between.  Though this power has its limitations in that once a throwing blade hits her target it is gone (or hits any location) and the melee weapons only stick around for about 10 minutes before she must reform a new one 

BIO: Sabrina was born to parents Jackie and James Starr.  As a little girl both her parents pushed her to do well in everything that she tried.  It was because of this that Sabrina started and excelled at gymnastics. Though she was never able to make it to the Olympics Sabrina was still well known and after graduating from collage Sabrina returned to San-Francisco and started to teach classes and a small gymnastics clinic in the inner city. Though she enjoys what she does and loves to teach something that she is so passionate about sometimes she gets a little sad that she was never able to achieve her own dream of making it to the Olympics.

PERSONALITY:  Sabrina overall tends to be very upbeat and playful. Many people view her as someone who does not know how to take things seriously and think that she is a bit foolish in the way she acts.  What most people don’t realize is that though she knows when to be serious but believes that if you take things to seriously all the time you cannot see the good in what you do. Sabrina also tends to have a very compassionate heart and though she has been known to be quiet mean when she does get angry it takes quite a bit to get her to that point.

I got divine force manipulation as my second, and I decided to pick out those my character would have to prevent him from becoming too godlike

Hmm ok, because mine is completely O.P. and I was thinking of trying again. Angel soul and Ultimate Vision is just so....wrong. In fact Angel Soul alone is just wrong. Mostly because they can reconstruct someones biology.....

(I feel like I got the short end of the straw with my combined powers. Those were seriously the first two.)

TITAN PROJECT CANDIDATE - CLASSIFIED FILE
NAME: Nyx Pierre
AGE: 22
SEX:  Female
HEIGHT: 5'
BODY TYPE: Trim

ALPHA POWER: Sonography (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Sonography) – Nyx has the ability to read printed words by feeling the ink on paper. After gaining this power, her poor eyesight turned even worse and she is mostly blind but can perceive shadows. Through this power, she can read faster than anyone that she has met so far. She has soaked up knowledge like she never had before. The only problem with this power is that it is not very big on action. She feels it's far more suited for subterfuge and spying.

BETA POWER: Parachronal Cognition (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Parachronal_Cognition) – Nyx can see how the future plays out in parallel time lines. She can see every single way a possibility will play out. Through this, she can also communicate with individuals in the parallel time lines. However, this ability is difficult for her to control. Usually, she can only view one alternate at a time. She hopes to gain more control over this power because sometimes, she views a parallel time line against her will.

BIO: Nyx Pierre was born to Margie, an American, and Anselm Pierre, of France. She was born in California but then her parents moved to Hawaii. For the most part, she had a normal life. Her father opened up a cafe and her mother worked as a librarian. Even though they had money, she was never overly spoiled. She was always smart, remaining at the top of her class with her highest grades in her English classes. Nyx stayed in shape by skateboarding and swimming. After graduating high school, she moved Oregon to study Creative Writing. It was going to be her last semester before she graduated but then she was one of the people that gained powers. Having her sight worsen was horrible for her until she learned of her ability to read through ink. That made her determined to not let it get in her way. She began to train her body and mind, because viewing an alternate reality for the first time was harrowing. Nyx would make the most of what was given to her and was ready when they asked her to be on the reality show.

PERSONALITY: Nyx has a quiet determination to her. She is friendly despite her shortcomings and open to trying new things. For the most part, she loves to learn. Her powers have made her less whimsical than she used to be though she still likes to view the world as a thing of beauty. She hates arguing and tries her best to not let her opinion rule her. Despite the fact that she does not like fighting, she is willing to use her powers for good to help those who can't fight back against those who use their powers for evil acts.
