    The radio buzzed as the family of four huddled closely around it. Their house had been shaken violently and much had fallen to rubble. The father, covered in the grime of trying to dig out his home and even helping neighbors do the same, sighed as only interference filled their room. He had changed the batteries multiple times in hope that eventually someone would finally tell them what had happened. They had lost all electricity. The phones were down and the streets were so ravaged by the earthquakes that no one dared to try and take their cars out. They had been effectively cut off from anything outside the ruined city.

    He was about to turn it off when a calmed voice finally came over the air. The husband and wife looked at each other as a sense of relief finally fell over them. They would finally hear what happened.

    "....the massive earthquakes. Metropolis is in ruins. Fires rage throughout the city as lava continues to flow unchecked into its streets. Across the river, Gotham teeters on chaos as a third of the city is flooded by the tsunami. Ash from the volcano fills the streets of Gotham and Metropolis making driving impossible. Star City, Central City, Coast City are equally ravaged. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions are dead. It's impossible to know exactly how many."

    "What about the heroes?" Their young son looked up between his weeping mother and disturbed father, "they could save us!"

    As if to answer the young boy's question the radio continued, "we've not heard much of the heroes of these great cities. Some have died due to the disaster, others are missing. God help us if they don't show up."
    The story:
    As the little post mentions above, disaster has struck the country and iconic cities have fallen to the rage of nature. You will play a hero (or anti-hero) who will be trying to rebuild their city. Unfortunately for you, someone else has a different plan.

    The Rules:

    1. The Skill Set: We're looking for Intermediate - Adept writers. No less than three paragraphs will be accepted.

    2. The Timeline: You must post within a week or risk being left behind. Because we are operating through episodes, we must move them along to ensure the flow of the story.

    3. Standard rules (No god-modding, no controlling other characters, etc) apply.

    4. Please, no OOC drama.

    5. Canon heroes and anti-heroes only.

    If you're interested, here is what we want from you in terms of a character sheet:

    Picture: Panel Only (A panel picture is a picture that we would find in a comic book)
    History: A brief history of your chosen Hero

    ★ FORCE FIELD GENERATION (via his suit)
    ★ SUPER STRENGTH (via his suit)
    ★ ENHANCED DURABILITY (via his suit)
    ★ ENERGY BLASTS (via his gauntlets)
    ★ ENHANCED VISION/HEARING (via his visor)

    ★ VISOR
    ★ SKEETS

    Michael was born in the 25th century. He grew up poor with his twin sister, Michelle. He managed to get a football scholarship to Gotham U. There he played as a star quarterback. Unfortunately, that was short-lived as his absentee father came back into his life and convinced him to deliberately lose games to make money. Finally having a chance not to be poor, he bought into the scam. A while later he was caught and convicted of match fixing. He was disgraced and expelled.

    Unable to find a decent job, he ended up as a janitor for a museum that featured exhibits on past superheroes and villains. There he met Skeets, one of the museum's robots. After a time, Michael and Skeets devised a plan to take some of the museum's artifacts and the Waverider, and go back in time to become a respected hero.

    The plan worked, and Michael came back to the 21st century. There he saved the president's life, immediately solidifying him as a hero. He would go on to sell-out to many companies for wealth and fame. He's been renounced by most, if not all, heroes. Still, that doesn't mean he hasn't done some legitimate hero work. It's just usually shadowed by all the publicity that he lets come with it.

    ★★OOC: I didn't include his time traveling abilities or his knowledge of future events via Skeets because that seems super meta-gamey. I can use some handwavey excuse for him not having them.
