I always thought Josh Krasinski would be a great Clint.

He also has that sort of easy going confidence down that fits the character so well.

Dhi - Assuming my Psylocke is approved, I was sort of thinking that maybe there'd be room for a Secret Avengers style section, or something like that..the darker missions, etc. Perhaps something like that?
That does sound pretty cool!

Looking for someone more blonde, though to comment on suggestions so far;

Bradley Cooper and Chris Pine nail the Clint Barton look the most, leaning on Chris more.

This looks like Clint to me;

Blonde, blue eyed and kinda looks a cross between cool, swaggering and a lil dead-beat (if you imagine him in the trademark t-shirt and jeans instead of the suit in the pic).

We will answer all your questions this evening after the football game is over.

I also wanted to note our posting rate, which I'll be putting on the first post as well. We're looking for a post every 7-10 days minimum. If you are involved in a full on plot  (which we run as an option for players, they are not mandatory to attend) thst rate will change to 5 - 7 days. If for some reason you can't post on your turn in a plot combat scene , we can always work it out and skip that turn and you could get back in on your next turn. This is purely situational  (as in needing to be away from E during that time because of RL issues) and won't affect how your character is viewed. We always make accommodations and try to make sure everyone  gets some time in the spotlight.

Did that make sense? I probably shouldn't PUI (post under the influence).

Let's just say the superbowl here was a dangerous place to be. He ended up breaking his glasses and things were thrown. I just cleared the area.

We had the Jets game on earlier and then after it was over we turned on the Hawks game.

I was looking over the cast list and Silver Sable caught my attention. I hadn't thought about this character in years, but when she had her own series I remember reading and being interested whereas the male-dominated merc stories like GI Joe or SHIELD never appealed to me. Kind of an early Danger Girl. The merc thing is not unique by itself, but Silver Sable's thing was that she took in reformed villains, including several of the Sinister Six, as a force for good called the Wild Pack. I guess her dad was basically Aldo Raine from Inglorious Basterds, so potentially it's that kind of story.

If there aren't going to be any reformed villains on the cast, then I suppose that only leaves Punisher?

How do you see Silver Sable fitting into this setting?

If she helped during the Kree invasion, she would have been made an honorary Avenger.  If you'd like to play her, just do up a sheet and send it in.  :-)

While I agree with this I am also assuming it doesn't apply to robots? :)

Yeah, robots are a bit different.  No worries. 

Dhi - Assuming my Psylocke is approved, I was sort of thinking that maybe there'd be room for a Secret Avengers style section, or something like that..the darker missions, etc. Perhaps something like that?

Wander- I always thought Jensen Ackles, Bradley Cooper, Ben Mckenzie, and Chris Pine would make good ones, though I do like Renner.

Like spec ops missions for characters like the Black Widow, Psylocke and Spider-Woman?  That's certainly doable.

Hero Name: The Black Knight

Identity: Dane Whitman

Secret or Public Identity: Public

Power Tier: Tier One

Origin of Powers: Mystical, High Tech

Description (Appearance):  Dane is a six foot tall male of a solid build with chestnut hair and almond eyes.  He is barrel-chested with thick arms and very purposeful thighs.  He has an unspecified nobleman's quality about him.

Powers:  None.

Special Skills and Background Perks:
  • Genius Intellect:  Dane specialized in physics, but he is proficient in a wide array of advanced sciences and technologies, including genetic and mechanical engineering;
  • Melee Combatant:  Dane is a trained unarmed combatant and a superb swordsman;
  • Expert Horseman:  Dane is one of the most accomplished horsemen on the planet;

Special Equipment:
  • The Ebony Sword:  The Ebony Sword is a mystical accursed longsword that has been wielded by all Black Knights.  This indestructible sword can nearly cut every substance known to man, and grants its wielder numerous abilities, including: 
    • --the ability to deflect magical attacks,
    • --the ability to absorb energy attacks,
    • --immortality (Dane cannot be killed, but he can be seriously injured; however, a weapon made from the same rare meteor as the Ebony Blade bypasses this magic);
    • --and, the ability to teleport the sword to him or himself to the sword.
  • The Photonic Sword: Additionally, the Black Knight wields the Photonic Sword, a lightsword that can cut steel or affect an individual's neural system without physically harming them.  The Photonic Sword can also function as an energy shield or a gauntlet that grants the Black Knight limited enhanced strength.  The Photonic Sword's gauntlet setting is how the Black Knight manages to keep hold of his Atomic Speed at high speeds.
  • The Black Knight's Armor:  The Black Knight's mystical armor was crafted by elves and gifted to him by the Lady of the Lake.  It can be summoned and donned in an instant.  The armor is of light weight and grants its user enhanced durability against physical attacks and environmental conflagrations, like intense cold or heat.
  • The Atomic Steed: A technological wonder: a high-speed, atomic-powered rocket cycle.  It can reach Mach 1.3, and has a flight radius of nearly 40,000 miles.  Though it can reach a ceiling of 30,000 feet, it has been outfitted previously to both work underwater and in space.

Brief History: Nephew of the villainous Black Knight, Nathan Garrett, Dane was summoned by his uncle when he was mortally wounded following a battle with Iron Man. With his last words his uncle confessed to his life of crime, and bid Dane to restore the honor of the Black Knight legacy.

Since, Dane has proved himself worthy by fighting alongside the Avengers against many of the team's foes.  Though he is simply a human, the Black Knight also has the distinction of participating in some truly bizarre adventures involving astral shifting, time travel, mystical sojourns, interdimensional jaunts, and bouts of extraordinary existentialism.

During the Kree Invasion, the Black Knight fought valiantly alongside the Avengers.  However, his pegasus, Strider, was killed, and Dane was unseated at an altitude of 10,000 feet.  The fall shattered every bone in his body, but because he was wielding the Ebony Sword, he survived.  Still, Dane recently just came out of his coma.

Consider him approved, though honestly he really should be Tier 2, mostly because of the ebony blade and his martial prowess.  That's a mistake on my part.  It doesn't affect anything as far as who you're allowed to play though, so no worries.

No worries, we will have plenty for everyone to do as far as plots and mini plots, as well as normal sandbox elements.

Hero Name: Firestar

Identity: Angelica "Angel" Jones

Secret or Public Identity: Secret but known to certain government officials

Power Tier: Tier Two

Origin of Powers: Mutant

Description (Appearance):






Canon: Isla Fisher

Gender: Female

Height: 5' 8"

Weight: 125 lbs

Eyes: Green

Hair Red

Sexual Orientation: Pansexual

Powers:

Microwave Energy Generation: She has the ability to tap into Earth's electromagnetic field and convert it into microwave radiation emissions, which she can utilize in different ways. Microwaves are comparatively short waves of electromagnetic energy. Firestar continually absorbs microwave energy from her environment, including microwave energy from the stars, and continually broadcasts it at low levels.

Microwave Energy Manipulation: In order to use her microwave energy for specific purposes, Firestar must mentally concentrate, thus causing the microwaves to swirl about her body, creating a visible aura around her. In order to project the microwave energy towards a specific target, she must mentally "push" some of the energy swirling around her towards that target. She can focus microwaves on a specific target, and cause it to burst into flame, or explode, or melt. She can also sense microwave signals (such as cell-phone signals or even remote-control devices) and disrupt electronics with her own microwave emissions. The nature of Firestar's power grants her the capacity for large-scale destruction. However, she typically limits how much of her own power she accesses for fear of permanently damaging the planet, its atmosphere and electromagnetic field. In space, she is far less inhibited, and can access greater levels of ambient electromagnetic energy to fuel her powers. She easily produced an attack that injured Garthan Saal when he possessed the energy of the entire Nova Corps, and also used her enhanced abilities to power a massive Shi'ar interstellar transport gate with very little effort.

Microwave Heat Emission: Firestar can use her microwave energy to generate intense heat. At this point she can already melt a metal object the size of a cannon almost instantly. She has flown towards a thick wall of solid rock and melted through it so quickly that she could continue flying right through the hole she had melted without pausing.

Microwave Flight: By super-heating the air around her, she can surround her self with an aura of flaming plasma, and if she projects her plasma aura downwards in a tightly focused stream, she can generate enough upward thrust to fly at high speeds. Firestar's powers appear to become more powerful when in space, and she was once able to power a massive stargate with virtually no effort. Her maximum speed has yet to be established, but she can already fly quite swiftly and maneuver in flight quite well. She can generate enough propulsive force to carry considerable weights to great heights at high speed. For example, she has carried Colossus, in his metal-like form, which weighs 500 pounds, high into the air.

Partial Microwave Emission Immunity: Firestar is apparently immune to most of the damaging effects of the microwaves she emits, although she did undergo tests with Henry Pym to make sure. Unlike most mutants, however, her immunity to her own power was not complete; she was in danger of rendering herself sterile until a cure was discovered by Henry Pym in the form of a special suit. Pym claimed it would take about six months for the process to be complete and over time Firestar appeared to be functionally immune to microwave radiation.

Psionic Disruption: On rare occasions, Firestar has demonstrated the ability to disrupt the psionic powers of others using her own power; namely, Emma Frost, Empath, and the Darkling. She is not immune to psychic assault, but when using microwave abilities at a high level she is capable of disrupting it though.

At present Firestar is still in the process of learning how to use her powers. Moreover, she is still quite young, and the strength of her powers will surely increase as she reaches adulthood. Hence, the full extent of Firestar's powers has yet to be determined. During a fight between the Avengers and Fantastic Four, the Human Torch was afraid of burning her with his own flames. However, she eventually displayed the ability to siphon heat energy and to detect electromagnetic signatures from broadcast transmissions.

Weaknesses

Firestar's powers do not grant her any particular immunity to the effects of intense heat other than that generated by her own microwave powers.

Special Skills and Background Perks: Masters Degree in Physics

Special Equipment: Full-body sheath of micro-circuitry designed by Hank Pym and worn under her uniform; siphons off and absorbs excess microwave emissions to protect Firestar's physiology from her own radiation that was affecting her cells, and diverted it in a way that would "kick start" her natural immunity to her own powers.

Brief History:

Angelica Jones was a thirteen-year-old high school student who fell victim to a series of unfortunate events. She was bullied by the girls at her school, her beloved grandmother died suddenly, and Angelica was frightened to discover that she herself was manifesting a strange superhuman power to generate great heat. With her grandmother gone, Angelica lived alone with her father, who was unable to cope with helping Angelica deal with her new power. Angelica was desperately confused, lonely, and miserable.

Angelica was in fact a mutant, and her newly emerging mutant ability caused her presence to be detected by Cerebro, a machine designed by Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men, for the purpose of locating superhumanly powerful mutants. Cerebro functions by detecting the unusual waves of psionic energy emitted by all superhumanly powerful mutants. Angelica's presence was also registered by Multivac, a similar machine employed by Emma Frost, the White Queen of the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club. Xavier and the X-Men attempted to pinpoint the unknown mutant's location in order to recruit her for Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, where he trained mutants in using their powers.

Meanwhile, Frost did the same, hoping to enlist the unknown mutant in her school, where she could train her to use her powers in order to serve the sinister purposes of the Inner Circle. Frost reached Angelica and her father only moments before the X-Men could. Frost, in her public role as headmistress of the Massachusetts Academy, a renowned private school, persuaded Angelica's father to send her there to receive the special help she needed.

A year later Angelica had made great progress in developing the use of her powers under the White Queen's guidance. Angelica remained an innocent, unaware of the true malevolent nature of the Hellfire Club and the White Queen. Angelica found some happiness at the Massachusetts Academy, and she was very grateful to Frost for the kindness she often showed her. Frost gave Angelica the code name of Firestar.

Thunderbird (James Proudstar), one of the Hellions, a team of adolescent mutants being trained by Frost, sought vengeance on Xavier and the X-Men for the death of his brother, the original Thunderbird (John Proudstar), who had been killed in action while serving with the X-Men. Two other Hellions, Empath and Roulette, decided to help Thunderbird against the X-Men despite his refusal of their assistance. Empath used his power to control the emotions of others to force Firestar to fall in love with him so deeply that she would do anything he asked. He thus forced her to participate in the three Hellions' attack on the X-Men, whom Frost had taught Angelica to regard as enemies, at the military base at Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado. However, the X-Men defeated Firestar, Empath, and Roulette, and Thunderbird realized he was wrong to want vengeance on Xavier and the X-Men.

Firestar, once free of Empath's control, felt despair and guilt over having helped the Hellions cause so much trouble at Cheyenne Mountain. She was pleased and touched, however, when Xavier offered to admit her into his school. She refused, though, out of loyalty to Frost, and returned to the Massachusetts Academy.

Eventually, however, Frost began to manipulate Firestar to fulfill her true intentions. Frost intended to employ Angelica as assassin against her rival Selene, then the Black Queen of the Hellfire Club. To this end, she used her telepathic powers, an armlet which allowed her to tap into Angelica's dreams, and her Hellfire lackeys to initiate alleged accidents with Angelica's powers, further driving her into isolation and Frost's arms. However, since her first day at the Academy, Angelica had been assigned a bodyguard named Randall Chase. Chase, who grew very close to Angelica, was aware of Frost's plans and became increasingly concerned about Angelica's welfare.

Eventually, Frost had Chase restrained and scheduled for termination; Chase escaped, mortally wounded, and managed to relate the truth to Angelica before dying in her arms. In retaliation, Angelica turned against Frost, destroying the Academy's secret training center before returning to her father, with whom she reconciled.
