Hi all, I know that there are likely other Justice League groups out there and some that are thinking of starting their own, but myself and another are planning on creating our own. Our twist on the idea is that we plan on really having it be the Justice League in name alone. The structure of the team and the members may be completely different from canon and the world that the team exists in may also be very different. You may use canon characters, but we highly encourage everyone to adapt the character and make them your own. Change their history to adapt them into a character that is truly yours. Or simply create a brand new character. There are many possibilities here. I even hesitate to say if it is the JLA or JLI or Task Force or anything like that. We will be creating a new universe and the exact history hasn't been set yet, but there will be plenty of freedom to change things. I am even thinking of setting it a couple of years in the future so everyone will need to explain what their character has been doing over the past couple of years and not just take over the character from the last issue of their comic. My co-mod and I will hopefully discuss and plan out the world within the next day.
To give you some ideas, our plan is to have the first villain be Maxwell Lord. He has managed to find a way to control another team of heroes from behind the scenes. He has access to highly detailed information on some superheroes and because of that, he is highly dangerous and needs to be stopped. The Justice League has learned of this and has decided to act. They go to bring him in, but he manages to use the other team of heroes to fight off the JL. That team will need to be defeated or have Maxwell's mind control broken before they can go after him. This leaves an opening for new JL members since Lord won't have detailed info on new heroes. Or you could play a character that is initially a member of the team Lord controls, but after the fight could join up with the JL. There are options and opportunities.
An example of changing your character would be the things I'm considering with my character. I will be playing Guy Gardner. Depending on who else we have in the rp I may have him as never having been honour guard. Certain events in the history of the JL Corps may not have happened. If there is no Tora Olafsdotter in the rp I am thinking of changing his history so that the two of them never dated. Maybe he dated someone else and they helped change him into who he is today, but they would be dead now and he would be open to find someone new. There are many options that I'm thinking about and will only decide when we have finished creating the world and once we know what other characters would be in the rp as well.
So, if you are interested, let me know. Feel free to even suggest a few things or reserve a character. Anyone is welcome who hasn't already been claimed. Any other Green Lantern is welcome as well, including aliens like Soranik Natu or Kilowog. Though more than a couple green lanterns might turn this more into a GL Corps story which isn't quite what we're aiming for. Though I am not sure what character my co-creator has in mind at this point, so there is another claimed character that I can't confirm at this point. Hopefully there won't be any confusion with that.
The game will be freeform writing with no requirements for a certain number of posts. Though we would hope that you would let us know if you are having difficulty posting or don't have the time to post.
I hope this interests some of you. I've tried to add as much detail to this as I can to show the focus of it and the first story, though there will be another, larger story that will unfold over time. If you have questions or suggestions, post them here or send me a PM.
