I'm back! And I'm here to revive a previous (short-lived) roleplay that I had here once upon a time. Without further ado, let's get to it!
Madcap.Adjective and Noun meaning amusingly eccentric, zany, eccentric, ridiculous, unconventional, weird, madman/madwoman, maniac, lunatic, psychotic, oddity, hothead, daredevil, crackpot, loony, nutjob, cuckoo, dingbat, wackadoodle... You get the picture.
Once upon a time, there were some people that did some things.
In a world where heroes and villains seem to have peeled themselves from the pages of graphic novels and inserted themselves into our lives, it feels like everyone expects extraordinary people to do extraordinary things. To them, it seemed as though anyone with the intellect of Tony Stark or the strength of Our Lord and Savior Steven Grant Rogers should definitely use it for good, to serve humanity and thwart evil-doers.
Unfortunately for all the assumers making asses outta themselves, not everyone wants to fall in line with their black-and-white model of good and bad, heroes and villains. Being incredibly skilled or having powers beyond human capability shouldn't mean you're automatically obligated to use it for everyone else. So what if you would make an excellent superhero with your laser eyes. Maybe you just wanna sit on your ass and use your laser eyes to pop your popcorn and chase off those raccoons that keep tipping over your trashcans every night. And maybe you do want to be a hero. Problem is, everyone wants you to do it on their terms, not yours. Truth is, they don't actually care about you. They ask not what they can do for you, only what you can do for them. And that's pretty shitty.
That's where Madcaps comes in.
It all started one balmy summer day six months ago. Thirteen individuals happened to be on the same plane that was hijacked by a wannabe-villain -- The Ender. Terrifying, right? The only thing that was scary about him was his incompetence. The plane went down, but only by a series of highly unfortunate accidents rather than by The Ender's own doing. Luckily enough for the good people of Flight 871, they had not-quite-superheroes on board! The crash landing wasn't so bad, and there were no fatalities or serious injuries. The Ender managed to get away, but nobody was dead and he was an idiot that was probably going to get caught soon anyways. No harm, no foul.
Now, the people of Flight 871 ended up stranded in the beautiful, mosquito-infested wilderness of the Rockies for a month before the rescue party found them. Huzzah. The Thirteen -- as the heroes of the crash were initially called -- were harangued and harassed the whole time about working for the greater good. They were chastised, even. Look at the great things they could do! Were it not for the application of their various powers and skills, many lives would have been lost between the crash and the passengers' effective inability to survive the wilds. Obviously The Thirteen were doing something wrong because nobody had ever heard of them superheroing before now. The not-quite-heroes talked amongst each other (because talking to everyone else was annoying) and discovered they were more alike than they thought.
They parted ways after the rescue, though they remained in close contact. A few years later, they found themselves kicking it at their bi-annual vacation when one of them spoke up about some real shit...
Their heroes kind of fuckin' sucked. They were all so useless. It felt like there was nobody that was willing to stick up for people that weren't human and it was a load of bullshit. In fact, the UN had passed a Registration Act that was even worse than the new-and-improved Sokovia Accords which prevented superhumans and mutants from using their abilities outside of their own homes except in situations wherein they would save human lives, though they were still susceptible to being sued, fined, and possibly jailed for any collateral damage. The Registration Act called for anyone and everyone that wasn't human and any human with a... unique set of skills to report to their local Sentinel Services office to be evaluated and tagged. The government would decide whether or not they were dangerous, and they'd then be registered to an international database. The dangerous ones were considered WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction), and the fine print of the Registration Act declared that any WMD was considered government property and subject to be procured and used at the discretion of their native country.
Some of them were already evading Sentinel Services -- more than a few of them had a track record already. Tony Stark didn't seem keen on helping, and Captain America was AWOL with his half of the Avengers. The Revengers would probably help, but Thor was having a space adventure to overcome severe PTSD and depression, Loki was presumed dead, Valkyrie had queenly things to do, and Professor Hulk was busy with selfies and dabbing with the kiddies.
Thus the Madcaps were born. Sure, their name was kinda dumb, but they're a force of nature. Their goal? To dole out justice whenever, wherever, and however they see fit. Nothing is "below their paygrade".

☆This is a zero-tolerance zone, okay? I will not tolerate bullying, rudeness, or people just being dickwads in general. Please remember that drama belongs between characters, not between writers.
☆If you're experiencing problems with another writer, please contact me so we can handle it efficiently and maturely. The last thing we need is for the threads to dissolve into a flame war.
☆This roleplay is based in an alternate Marvel universe. As such, I am okay with, and encourage, characters that are amazingly amazing, maybe even downright goddamn cliche. You want a character that can bend the very laws of physics? GO FOR IT, BRO! Just please keep in mind that your characters are not immune to cause and effect.
☆That being said... Nobody's characters are untouchable. I will not accept godmoding, extreme powerplaying, or metagaming. Please use the two commons when writing: sense and courtesy. Just because your character can snap their fingers and explode the heads of every NPC within a 5 mile radius doesn't mean that they should. Will our characters get around to doing dumb shit that will end up messy for them? Absolutely. But it won't be a constant thing happening.
☆There can be more than 13 characters, and you may have up to 3 characters.
☆Do not be afraid to make suggestions! This isn't just my story -- it's our story! I would love to hear from my fellow writers on what you guys think would make this even more fun.
☆I'm honestly 1000% okay with people having the same powers or skills.
☆NO CANON CHARACTERS. You may apply for characters with connection to Marvel-canon characters, but I will be picky about them and I will not accept blatant rip-offs of canon characters, nor will I accept canon characters under any circumstances.
☆Please use real-life people for your character face claims. I don't care if you use Beyonce, but please. Real-life face claims. Thank you.
☆Since this roleplay is an open world, and there are multiple characters, I don't expect all of our characters to be around each other all the time -- they aren't all attached at the hip. Tagging characters is a must that way we know who your post is directed at <3

Considering that our AU includes mutants, Inhumans, and everything in between, the timeline is kind of... there. Nothing that Fox or Sony has ever produced is in any way canon in this universe. I spit on their films. PTUH! Okay, the Deadpools, Logan, and The Gifted are really fucking good, though. Anyway. Consider this an MCU-AU. The events of the films from Iron Man up to Endgame are canon, as are the events of everything from Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones,*gag*Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, and *shiver* Inhumans.
But, for your convenience, here's a basic-as-shit timeline!
1942: With the help of (*in my Reinhardt voice*) German engineering, the American Government has created the first perfect super-soldier – Steven Rogers, aka Captain America aka Our Lord and Savior aka Owner of America's Ass. Months later he crashes a ship and becomes a particularly delicious superhuman popsicle after a battle with a Nazi that unironically calls himself Red Skull.
1962: A group of particularly extraordinary mutants that unironically call themselves X-Men divert the Cuban Missile Crisis which, the majority of the population are unaware of, was brought on by mutants. The Hellfire Club is disbanded and Brotherhood of Mutants begins. Why couldn't they call themselves The Fellowship of Mutants? I don't think Emma Frost and Angel Salvadore had a say in that. United States government begins massive cover-up to hide the existence of mutants.
1965: Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters is officially registered as an accredited school and begins to enroll students and recruit mutants to fight crime. UA got nothing on them.
The 90s: Captain Marvel space stuff.
2008: Sometime in mid-February, the Hulk “breaks Harlem” in a battle for the ages against Abomination, a creature that is the first prime example why the government can't be trusted to train or create supers. Then Bruce Banner disappears, taking The Other Guy with him. Around that same time, Tony Stark is kidnapped before reappearing in May. A few months later Tony Stark murders (is it murder if it's self-defense?) Obadiah Stane before coming out as Iron Man. Cheeseburger sales hit an all-time high.
2010: Shit almost goes to Hell in a handbasket because Tony Stark's father is a thief and Whiplash came for blood. Justin Hammer went to jail because he sucks – and teamed up with a supervillain. And Tony Stark/Iron Man beat his new nemesis, Whiplash. But where's the bird? The good news is that Tony's bestie, Rhodey, decides to steal one of his suits, call himself War Machine, and is now a hero. Relax, citizens. There's a man called War Machine to protect you; doesn't that make you feel safe?
2011: Humans find out that they are definitely not alone. As if playboys with missile-laden suits of armor, rumors of people developing the ability to shoot lasers from their eyes, and giant green monsters weren't enough to worry about, humans found out that the Vikings weren't crazy. Thor crashed down to Midgard after being exiled and had a grudge match with his adopted brother, Loki (our true King) that nearly leveled a small town in New Mexico. Then they all just disappeared. OH! SHIELD also found Captain America and decided to defrost him and ensure that he becomes their weapon against the fight for... whatever it is SHIELD fights for.
2012: Loki came back and he's pissed. He wants to rule over humans because he believes humanity is incapable of doing anything worthwhile on their own. He's not entirely wrong. But, humans are humans. The Avengers, SHIELD's super-secret boyband, is formed and consists of: Iron Man, Thor (who decided to chase Loki to Midgard and help the puny humans), Bruce Banner/Hulk (who was seduced out of hiding by–), Natasha Romanova/Black Widow (who was previously spying on Tony Stark and destroying Happy Hogan's ego), Clint Barton/Hawkeye (who's basically their dad), and Captain America. They beat back Loki's invasion and win the Battle of New York. Insane. Why didn't the mutants help? They're perfectly fine sequestering themselves from the world; their kind tends to wind up going missing when they expose themselves.
2013: Once again, people go after Tony Stark and his tech. He has a lot of shit going on, the Vice President turns out to be shady, exploding super-soldiers are running around, Tony does dumb shit (like challenging a supervillain to come and fight him at his house and then acting surprised when they attack his house). It's messy. The panic attacks and PTSD aren't helping matters. But, because he's a hero, he saves the day. And then he destroys all of his suits and fixes his chest – HOORAY. And apparently, War Machine is now Iron Patriot because that sounds less like his sole mission is to invade and conquer. Later on that year, we see many places in the world experience unnatural phenomenon as the worlds, not the stars, the worlds align. Dark Elves apparently aren't dead (thanks, Bor) and they try to take over the entire universe. Loki, Thor, his biceps, his genius girlfriend, her intern, her intern's intern, and some old guy manage to defeat them! Though there's a giant bilgesnipe from Jotunheim running around Earth now...
2014: SURPRISE, BITCH! IT'S HYDRA. Yes, HYDRA. While the government thought that Captain America had ended them decades ago, they were surprised to find out that HYDRA has been infiltrating SHIELD and every level of government since the 40s. It wasn't that hard, given that the government actually hired some of them... Operation Paperclip wasn't their best idea. But who cares. It's also when Cap's best friend, Bucky comes back as a sort of mind-controlled zombie assassin: The Winter Soldier. It's frightening, though most citizens didn't even know what was going on, just that secret organizations and supers were fighting again, and now there's a black guy with metal wings and a jetpack flying around with Captain America. Nick Fury is “dead”. SHIELD fell and many agents sought refuge working for the government or, even better, Tony Stark. Those that didn't work for Stark continued on in the shadows, aided by the many faces of Koenig. There's also some shit going on in space with a Kree guy, Ronan, and a dipshit human that goes around calling him Star Prince or something.
2015: Tony Stark seems to be incapable of not messing shit up. This marks the year that his murderbot got smart and realized that humans were shitty creatures destroying the world. So he decided to help them do it faster. The Avengers refused to stand for it and they beat him, though at the expense of several lives and livelihoods, as always. And then Hulk launches himself into space and Thor goes home with the technology that created Murderbot. An amazing potential hero dies when it should have been Hawkeye, and the Avengers gain a 17-year-old witch... Or is she a mutant? Back in the US, there's a tiny man with ants running around calling himself Ant-Man. Scott Lang, a brilliant hacker and burglar, got his hands on Hank Pym's tech, which is better than Stark's, and decided to be a superhero in the best way – tackling down corporate greed. Hey! He managed to beat Falcon! In Queens there's also a kid running around in a crappy spider costume calling himself Spider-Man. But he's doing good. He's doing real good.
2016: The Avengers botch a mission that ends up killing refugees, children, and others when they accidentally toss a bomb... at a hospital. The legality of their operations is then called into question. The Sokovia Accords are drawn up! Anyone and everyone wanting to do superhero shit (especially supers, and especially Avengers) have to sign and abide by the new rules or retire. Or be imprisoned in a facility in the middle of the ocean: The Raft. The Avengers split up because at least 4 of them know better than to trust the governments to oversee people with super abilities. They fight a lot, have a showdown at a German airport. Tony Stark thinks it's brilliant to let a 15-year-old Friendly Neighborhood Night Monkey fight seasoned assassins, heroes, soldiers, and warriors. Rhodey becomes a paraplegic. Bucky tries to clear his name because he's not going around killing people – it's another man in a wig. #TeamCap gets imprisoned on The Raft until Cap breaks them out, but not before he and Bucky put the smackdown on Tony. Meanwhile, T'Challa/Black Panther is actually doing something productive and he manages to catch the man who orchestrated the entire splitting up and destroying of the Avengers. Later, Cap and his team hideout all over the world. Bucky is kept in Wakanda where their advanced technology helps fix what HYDRA broke.
AND IN CHINA there's a wizard fight. Sorcerers from Kamar-Taj engage in an unholy battle to decided whether or not a timeless entity will be allowed to merge with our world. Doctor Strange, a cocky and narcissistic surgeon that found something better than god – MAGIC – becomes the new Sorcerer Supreme after successfully wielding the Eye of Agamoto to annoy the shit out of said timeless entity (Dormamu) until a bargain is struck that makes Dormamu go away and wish he'd never met Strange. Unfortunately, the misunderstood and misled Kaicilius had to die. Tragic. Alex, play In the Arms of An Angel. And there's another wizard running around killing other wizards because there's too many wizards.
OH AND BY THE WAY. The X-Men went viral when someone from Xavier's accidentally uploaded their mutant-filled mansion birthday bash to all of their social media accounts. And that's how mutants were outed. There was a press conference a week later that saw the President of the US bumble his way through an attempt to educate the general populace about the X-Gene until Charles Xavier started uploading informative YouTube videos.
And then 2016 got even better. Three months after mutants are outed (let's say it happened in August), the UN draws up the Registration Act. The Registration Act requires any and every being, whether human or not, that has any kind of powers or special abilities or special equipment or special skills to register with their local government, to then be uploaded into a federal and international database. Because that seems like it'll work out just fine. Unlike with the Sokovia Accords, this didn't apply only to people that wanted to fight crime and be heroes. Have powers, must register. Unfortunately, the fine-print decrees that non-human beings have absolutely zero constitutional rights and any being deemed too dangerous or powerful would be labeled a WMD (weapon of mass destruction) and considered the property of their respective government. AND THEN ALONG CAME SENTINEL SERVICES. **please read 'factions' tab for more info on these asshats
2017: Stuff is happening in space, but now it's here too! Nobody on earth knows why mysterious blue goop started bubbling up and swallowing things and it's impossible to analyze. To be discussed later. Spider-Man is still around and now he thinks he's the shit because he has a teched-out suit and he went toe-to-toe against Falcon and Winter Soldier and Ant-Man and won. But let's not talk about how Cap handed his ass to him. He manages to take down Vulture, a notorious arms dealer, but he's just doing friendly neighborhood Spider-Man stuff. Nothing to see here. The real action is in space! Hulk finds Thor, they fight, they laugh, they instigate a revolution led by a pile of talking rocks, the Kronan called Korg (please, take a pamphlet). But why is Thor on the slave planet of Sakaar? Because his big sister that makes him look like the adopted one is back now that dad's dead, and she wants the world. Thor can't beat her so he saves his people and releases Surtur, who destroys all of Asgard. Ragnarok, bitches.
2018: Deep in the heart of Africa, Wakanda is being better than the rest of the world and M'Baku is being fine as hell. They've got their shit going on. And then Thanos comes. Bruce Banner has been beamed down to Earth after Thanos and the Black Order murdered Loki, Heimdall, and half the remaining Asgardian population. A whole lot of shit goes down and then suddenly... Poof. Half the world disappears, leaving M'Baku to rule Wakanda, just as he's always wanted. RIP T'Challa.
2023: After a battle for the ages, every person that ever went missing (on account of The Blip) miraculously returns. Captain America is an old man. Tony Stark is dead. Black Widow is dead. Hawkeye is slightly more murderous than before. Thor breaks the rules of monarchy so New Asgard can be led by the last Valkyrie before he heads to space. Past Gamora takes the place of Future Gamora. Professor Hulk is still around. Wakanda is now open for business. A-Force might be a thing. There's a lot to take in. Oh, and then Peter Parker was outed by some guy calling himself Mysterio (thanks, Italy) after a massive battle in London. The world is basically on fire.
And because there's so much going on in the MCU tv shows, rather than put them all in the timeline, here's this:
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 1 (May-December)
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 2 (February-May)

Alright, so you've read the timeline and you're wondering what's going on with the supers. I get it. Well, here you go!
SHIELD: Currently a super-secret organization (more than before) back from the future and trying to change it. SHIELD was unknown until the events of Civil War before being publically disbanded and disavowed by the US government. They continued on in secret with the Actually-Alive-Coulson at the helm. Returned to the public eye with a new image under the Directorship of Jeffery Mace. After he died, Coulson took the reins once more. After Coulson died (actually dead-dead this time), Alphonse Mackenzie was appointed Director. Currently operating out of The Lighthouse, a secret bunker under Lake Ontario. **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members.**
AVENGERS: The Avengers are the most well-known team of heroes in the world. They are more-or-less disbanded at the moment, though their current members consist of Spider-Man, Professor Hulk, Falcon, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, The Wasp, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Valkyrie, Rescue, and Black Panther. **Non-playable faction; not open to characters being former members**
TRASK INDUSTRIES: A private (secretly funded by the government) corporation posing as a pharmaceutical company. It was founded in the late 1930s and since then they've done everything they can to get their hands on any kind of super they possibly can, particularly interested in mutants. They engage in experiments that violate all kinds of laws of humanity, and their goals are often unclear. They view humans as superior and everything else as lesser beings to be manipulated and harnessed as tools, weapons, toys, and whatever they deem fit. They are ruthless and uncaring. If a mutant isn't taken by the X-Men or Brotherhood upon awakening, you can bet your ass that Trask got them. Unless said mutant manages to hide and evade. **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members or victims**
ALKALI-TRANSIGEN: An organization that is as of yet unknown. Their purposes? Unclear. They pose as a pediatric company. In reality, they breed mutant children using stolen genetic samples. The children they raise are kept in captivity, sold to Trask, or sold off to the highest bidder. **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members or victims**
SENTINEL SERVICES: In 2016, when mutants "came out", many politicians that'd been previously unaware of their existence demanded that there be a branch of law enforcement dedicated solely to capturing, subduing, and imprisoning "rogue" mutants. Sentinel Services has been around for seven years and they have a nasty habit of capturing innocent mutants, charging them with the crime of existing. But nobody says anything because it's hard to prove when you've got the government at your back. Rumors are that they sometimes supply Trask with mutants. There are several departments within Sentinel Services, but the most infamous one is the MRD -- Mutant Response Division. The MRD is basically SWAT... Or an inverted X-Men. **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members or victims**
PURIFIERS, CHURCH OF HUMANITY, & FRIENDS OF HUMANITY: All three of these groups go hand-in-hand. Most people that are members of one are members of the others as well. Since the public discovery of mutants, they have made it their mission in life to spread propaganda and fear-mongering. They detest all mutants, nuhumans, inhumans, and superpowered beings, but hate the mutants most of all. They are driven by fanatic religion, rejecting the belief of evolution. While the Church of Humanity and Friends of Humanity are pro-human, anti-mutant factions that are likely to be found protesting somewhere, the Purifiers are the militant ones. Purifiers are on par with the Klan; they enjoy hunting down mutants for sport (no matter the age). Some are even members of Sentinel Services. **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members or victims**
WATCHDOGS: They're a bunch of fucking assholes. Most of them are former military, former SHIELD, etc, but they've got a stick up their ass about most supers. They don't mind humans genetically enhanced by steroids and experiments and cybernetics too much, but they hold a special hatred for the likes of aliens, inhumans, mutants, and nuhumans. The Watchdogs are a milita that rolls around kidnapping targets with all the skill of an elite black ops team. They then either torture and kill them or sell them to places like Trask Industries. The government doesn't really seem to care. **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members or victims**
X-MEN: They are an elite group of mutants that specialize in protecting mutants from humans, humans from mutants, and everyone from the Brotherhood. Half of them are under 21 and former students of Xavier's. They don't have too much to do besides search and rescue since the Brotherhood ghosted them. Unlike the Avengers, they don't like the spotlight. You won't see them doing television interviews or anything; they get their job done and they leave. **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members or students**
BROTHERHOOD OF MUTANTS: They really can't stand humans, and who can blame them. Most of them suffered greatly at the hands of humans and turned to the bosom of the Brotherhood for safehaven. They believe the world would be better off without humans and have, on many occasions, attempted to make humans aware of mutantkind, only to be thwarted by the X-Men. They disappeared from everyone's radar in 2015 after dropping a baseball stadium on the White House lawn. Rumor has it that they've got a private island somewhere in the middle of the Pacific... **Non-playable faction; open to characters being former members (or victims)**
MUTANTS: Mutants are also called Homo Sapien Superior. Many papers have been written on them and the X-Gene has been studied extensively, although the government is keen on keeping this information under wraps. Mutants were once considered myths, though they aren't rare at all. Before, Xavier's and the Brotherhood were quick at snapping up budding young mutants before they could be discovered by humans. They lived a life of secrecy, hiding what their genes made them capable of. But, after the Brotherhood disappeared, they came out. Not because they wanted to, though (refer to 2016 on timeline). They still try to remain secretive, but more and more feel emboldened enough to be out as they are. **Playable species.**
INHUMANS & NUHUMANS: Inhumans were even more secret than mutants once upon a time. Nobody even knew they were a possibility. But, after water supplies and a large quantity of fish oil vitamins were contaminated with Terrigen Mist, people with Inhuman genes began to go through Terrigenesis all over the world, though those sans Kree gene didn't survive the process. SHIELD recruited many, some decided to just hide, and others were kidnapped... The newly awakened ones are called Nuhumans. And then you have the bloodline of the OG Inhumans. After their home was overtaken, the Inhumans that have been living on the moon migrated to Earth and were granted a large piece of land in Hawaii to restart their kingdom anew. But not all people of Attilan trust their royal family to break away from the oppressive and degrading caste system that started the coup in the first place; and can they really trust humans, especially from the government? **Playable species.**
SORCERERS: They have magic. Some inherited, others learned it. They keep to themselves and guard the world from the supernatural. They come in all species. **Playable faction.**
HUMANS: Not much to say here. **Playable species.**
ENHANCED HUMANS: They come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Their powers were obtained in many different ways -- blessed by some deity or cosmic entity, getting struck by lighting during a blue moon, getting bitten by a radioactive raven -- but the majority of them are the subjects of illicit, unethical, and often illegal experiments conducted by either the government or private corporations. **Playable species.**
AESIR & VANIR: Asgard was home to many Aesir and Vanir, though both are often mistaken as Asgardians (it's wrong because Asgardian isn't a species, it's more of a nationality). They look like humans but they can lift up to 2 tons, weigh thousands of pounds, can punch Hulk through five buildings, have an immense amount of stamina, and are incredibly durable. Not because they are all warriors, but just because it's how they're designed. They currently live in New Asgard, formerly known as Tønsberg, a small fishing village on the coast of Norway. **Playable species on case-by-case basis.**
ALIENS: I won't even try to list them all, to be honest. Here you go. **Playable species on case-by-case basis.**
