Taken from
Rise Of The Marvels (AU Marvel RP/Story)
alternate timeline
World War 2 Era
~Super Soldier Serum developed by Dr. Abraham Erskine in Germany at the start of World War 2. Johann Schmidt takes the formula, becoming the Red Skull. Erskine escapes to America, being involved in the Strategic Scientific Reserve, and then Operation Rebirth.
~Schmidt becomes lead of Hydra, finds the Tesseract. Starts to create weapons with Arnim Zola. The Super Soldier Serum is administered to Steve Rogers, who then becomes Captain America.
~Defenders aid the Allies.
~The events of Captain America: The First Avenger, essentially. With one difference, the Tesseract is never recovered by Howard Stark. Bucky is taken by Hydra and made into the Winter Soldier.
~Logan participates in World War 2. Meets Captain America as his squad and the Howling Commandos liberate a Nazi internment camp of Jewish citizens.
~Erik Lensherr and his family are put into a Nazi internment camp, his family killed before the cap he was in was liberated.

~21 years ago, the first publicized major mutant 'incident' is reported. A single man disables a Russian submarine, all hands lost. Mutants, almost immediately, are seen as a force of destruction to the world as a whole. Up to this point, mutants were more urban legends. The ones that are 'discovered' are treated with prejudice, sometimes to the extreme. But it is never reported.

~17 years ago, Bolivar Trask receives a grant to begin work on a safeguard system for humanity at large.

~10 years ago, Charles Xavier begins work on a school in upstate New York with the intention of someday having it act as a safe haven and learning center for mutants. It has yet to be opened to the public. He has taken in a small handful of mutants, helping them to gain control over their abilities.

~8 years ago Tony Stark premieres as Iron Man. He is approached by Nick Fury to aid in the Avengers Initiative. Thor arrives on Earth, his battle with the Destroyer leveling a small town. Captain America is found in the ice and revived by SHIELD. He begins assimilation into this new world. He has yet to be revealed to the public.

~2 years ago Reed Richards heads a research team to launch an experimental spacecraft for stellar study. After exposure to a stellar storm, it crashes back to Earth. The team of 4 gains new abilities, but have yet to be revealed publicly.

This story does take place in the modern day world.
Right now the most prominent ‘superhero’ is Iron Man. Everyone knows he is Tony Stark. He hasn’t joined SHIELD in full measure yet, but acts as consultant and occasionally is asked to help in missions. Either in logistics or on the ground. War Machine works for SHIELD fulltime. HYDRA and AIM are major threats right now, in the hero world. HYDRA is utilizing the Winter Soldier for their missions, though his existence can not be positively confirmed.
Charles Xavier has built an institute in upper New York to help mutants gain control over their abilities, and act as a safe haven for mutants. To the world at large, he merely runs a school for gifted children. No one knows it is a school for mutants. But while he is operating a school, he is also beginning to build a strike force to be used for the good of mutants. Whether it is protecting mutants from violence, or fighting against mutants that would do harm to humanity at large. He is known as a teacher and a proponent of civil rights for all people, mutant and non mutant.
SHIELD has attempted to use ‘enhanced beings’ for their own purposes. They have even utilized mutants in this regard. But all attempts at creating a cohesive ‘team’ has been met with failure. More than one of their teams have been killed in the field. There have been 3 such teams thus far, one of those teams comprised wholly of mutants.
The world hates and fears mutants as a whole. Many see them as terrorists, and politicians have added to that perception for their own goals. They are superpowered beings hiding in the midst of your neighbors. Anyone can be a mutant, anyone can be out to hurt humans. Anti-mutant propaganda has reached a fever pitch, prompting SHIELD to begin putting together a fourth strike force. A team to defend the world should the need arise.

Initial Rules/Guidelines
1. This will continue to be long term. Over a year and a half since the first post on the original story
2. Maybe post once a week at least? At least a good paragraph? I will likely be more firm with time frame than before.
3. Romance, LBGT friendly, of course. Will your character be intimate with another? Just take it to PM or another thread, please.
4. I don't want.. smut... or anything like that. but it should be a mature RP. Like.. bad things happening. Descriptive bad things. Consider this a Rate 'R' RP.
5.Not a huge group..I think people get lost in those sometimes. Play 2 characters if you want, so long as you can keep up with posting and all.
6. We are now (for now, that is) only accepting canon characters, please. Some deviation allowed for.

layer name: BrokenWings

Character Name: Sarah Rushman

Codename: Marrow

Age: 20

Height:5’8”

Weight: 130 lbs (59kg)

Eyes: Blue

Hair: Pink (with brunette roots)

Distinguishing Features: Marrow is very athletic, and is occasionally mistaken for a boy. She colors her hair pink, as a way to prevent people from making this mistake.

Mutant Ability: Marrow is capable of creating new bone tissue at will. She can also control the shape and sharpness of this new bone tissue, able to create weapons and protective coverings around her body. She can also control the density of the bone tissue. She can create this new tissue at enough speed to jettison them out of her body, fast enough to be embedded into several inches of concrete, given ideal circumstances. To compensate, she has two hearts, as well as a healing factor similar to wolverine. Her healing factor reacts better to the wounds inflicted by protruding bone, healing almost as soon as the bone has exited her body. Wounds created by external forces don’t heal quite as rapidly.

Recent lifestyle changes have given her several months of close combat training and firearms training with S.H.I.E.L.D. Experiences in early life have given her a predilection for Kali style knife-fighting, and she is self-taught in Savate. The same obsession that led her to teach herself Savate has given her a fluent understanding of French and a detailed history of the country itself.

Weaknesses: The bony prominence's she creates are not painless, and although she has grown accustomed to the pain, it is still unpleasant. Wounds created by the bony projections heal almost instantly, but externally caused wounds can take up to a few minutes to heal, depending on the severity of the wound. She is very athletic, but not beyond what most people consider peak physical condition. Although her body tries its best to compensate, overuse of her ability can lead to her being drained of the calcium in her body, affecting her musculature, her cognitive ability, and even having one of her hearts fail at one point in her life.

Bio: Sarah’s earliest memories are of a small apartment, a noisy subway train, and two adults she is fairly certain she called mom and dad. Then, chaos. What follows in her mind is a blur, a painful one, that ends with her being told she was going to a new home, one that would accept her for who she was. Although she never felt like her parents didn’t want her, these new people, these Morlocks, made sure she knew the only place she had family was in the underground. For the next few years, she was taught by her new family how to eke out a living in the underground, using the powers that made her special. One of the most important lessons, the one that they made sure to impress on her, was that when all else failed, stab somebody. When she tried imparting this knowledge onto a strange, red-eyed man, he, for some odd reason, did not take too kindly to this. This man had intended to teach this girl some manners (she desperately needed) when he chased her into the tunnels, he ended up saving her from becoming another victim of a violent raid, courtesy of a group called the Marauders. Being a gambler, the red-eyed man knew being a surrogate father was not in the cards, so he left Sarah, now calling herself Marrow, at an orphanage led by a nun he trusted.

Every so often Remy, the red-eyed man, would visit Sarah. Although it took some badgering, Remy eventually became Sarah’s only friend. These brief moments of respite were all Sarah had during her rather checkered stay at the orphanage. Early life had left Sarah with a bad attitude, to say the least, and it was not just once that potential adopters left the orphanage bleeding. The nun in charge of the orphanage eventually redirected her focus to French, convincing her that the more she knew about the language and the country, the closer she might get to Remy. Remy’s visits eventually turned into lessons on teamwork and camaraderie, and just like most things Remy said, Sarah listened intently. These lessons, and her focus on learning all things French, had a calming effect on her normally disgruntled nature.

A “chance” visit by a S.H.I.E.L.D. recruiter, a month before she would be forced to leave the orphanage, gives her a chance at a real future, beyond scrounging around the streets again.

Player Name: Dave Wski

Character’s Actual Name: Frank Castle

Codename: Punisher

Place of Residence/Dwelling: NYC

Punisher's apparent age is around early 40's. He was actually born in 1946, but his apparent physical age is affected due to medical experimentation

Current affiliation, None

Current Major Enemies: The Mafia, Kingpin, Daredevil.

Ideal Rogues Gallery: Nick Fury

Brief History/Highlights:


Born in Queens, NYC in 1946. Volunteered as a bright eyed and bushy-tailed member of Bay of Pigs operation, where his abilities and physique allowed him to bluff his way into serving as a mercenary. After escaping from Cuba with a few others, served in USMC in Viet Nam, Korea, and the Middle East. Showed exemplary performance with special forces operations in Viet Nam. During his service in Viet Nam, was unknowingly subjected to experimental clinical and psychoanalytical drugs which enhanced his physical prowess, at the cost of making him prone to emotional depression and single minded fixation on issues. The experimental drugs also unexpectedly slowed his apparent aging to where he physically appears and performs much younger than his real age.

Although not directly responsible, he was associated with operators involved with the assassinations of JFK and Bobby Kennedy. He is employed by the Johnson and Nixon administrations and the military as an military assassin and troubleshooter for targets in "troubled areas". He has worked with various government organizations since, but gives up all and pursues a vigilante lifestyle after family is murdered for witnessing a Mob hit.


Has spent his life since dedicated to destroying those who would prey on innocents.

What makes him Special:

Multi-disciplinary military training from the United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance. Received training from the Airborne School and U.S. Navy SEALs as well as cross-training with the Australian Special Air Service Regiment during the Vietnam War. In addition, Castle has used his military discipline and training techniques to update and expand his skills in areas that aid in his mission (disguise, acting, use of non-military weapons, etc.). Punisher is proficient in basic infantry skills, special operations, including the use and maintenance of specialized firearms and explosive ordnance. Highly trained in infiltration into heavily guarded territories and structures for the purpose of assassination, capture, and military intelligence. Also, he is trained in various forms of camouflage and stealth. He is highly adept at hand-to-hand combat, and has training in multiple forms of martial arts such as Nash Ryu Jujutsu, Ninjutsu, Shorin-ryu Karate, Hwa Rang Do, and Chin Na.[70] Both Nick Fury and Tony Stark have commented on how extraordinarily high his pain tolerance is. He does not take painkillers, as he feels that their benefit of dulling pain is not worth the side effects of drowsiness and slowed reflexes.

He maintains multiple safehouses and vehicles around the greater New York City area as well as multiple forged identities and bank accounts. The Punisher has a Kevlar uniform which protects him from most gunfire. The Punisher has been using technology derived from super-villains and other costumed characters, such as the Green Goblin's pumpkin bombs,[73] a modified Goblin Glider,[74] and a Doctor Octopus tentacle that he can shrink down for easy storage via Pym Particles.

Aside from his physical prowess, the Punisher also has complete control of his mind and consciousness, providing a strong resistance against psychic and telepathic powers that are used against him. When Lethaand Lascivious try to control Punisher's mind, Punisher scoffs at their attempt, saying "It doesn't feel different from any other day".[75]

So as you can see, I sometimes post odd related artwork here.

News, I am going to start the next round of posts. Though I still don't have character sheets from a couple of my players and might still recruit if necessary.

Mst3K will be traveling for a bit more than a week, and will be welcomed back when she returns.

He can secrete pheromones that attract the opposite sex. He has razor-sharp 3” claws that allow him to rend most conventional substances (flesh, wood, stone, and even metal) and climb vertically. He has strong fangs that are effective weapons. He is one of the 8 smartest people in the world.



Skills: He has six PhDs, including biophysics, biochemistry, genetics, computer science, medicine and electronics. He discovered the hormonal extract that is the chemical cause of mutation and cured the Legacy Virus. He has built artificial intelligence, danger-room robots, a time machine and has fixed alien star craft. He has eidetic memory. He’s an accomplished keyboard musician. He reads on a wide variety of social, technical & scientific topics. He has excellent hand-to-hand combat skills. He’s expert tactician and leader.

Gear: Fully equipped laboratory including some Shia’r technology. An SR-71, Quinjet, Rolls Royce, etc.. Whatever Xavier’s mansion houses, at need.



Personality. He’s an inveterate prankster and wit, the most literate and eloquent of the X-Men. He’s an idealist seeking to normalize relations between mutant and human.


This is going to be a ‘mature’ RP (like rated ‘R’ type). ,Are you okay with that?: Yes

Also in case, anyone was curious at how the stubble looks like for Cap, I imagine it's akin to this.
