Depending on the RP, I can be either. But most of the time I'm passive. I'll help you direct traffic, but I don't like to be in charge usually.

The year is 1976. The radio waves are groovy with hits such as Wild Cherry's Play That Funky Music to wash the bad taste of Nixon from people's minds.
Star Wars has started filming and nobody is ready for the phenomenon it will be.
Our story is about none of that really. It is the background for a battle unlike anyone has seen before.

The Multiverse… once just a hypothesis, but has been proven to be very real. There is an infinite number of different dimensions, each one subtly different than the last. But there are also similarities between them.

Like Spider-Man.

There is a new threat to those carrying the mantle of ‘The Spider’. Kraven the Hunter has found a way to move between the dimensions for his ultimate hunt. He is able to see into different dimensions, roughly locating his target and then hunting them down. He has killed multiple versions of Spider-Man already, and the list is growing. With each kill, he draws in an energy from his trophy. An energy that makes Kraven just a little stronger. It does fade after a short time… and so he moves onto another hunt in another dimension to do it all over again.

And in this Kraven’s home dimension, there are a small handful of people aware of Kraven’s hunt. Of the slaughter he brings to differing dimensions. They need champions to beat Kraven, and so they reach out to other dimensions also. Seeking the aid of The Spider…​



So, this will be a small group RP. We’re looking for 7 to 8 players. One character each (for now). The setting will be an Earth in the Multiverse. On that Earth, it’s 1976. The major hero groups of this world that are currently known to the public are:
Justice League (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern)
Avengers (Wasp, Ant Man, Iron Man, Thor, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye)
Blackhawk (Colonel Andrew Lincoln, Lady Blackhawk, Kunoichi, The Irishman, Attila, Canada, Wildman)
Fantastic Four (Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, The Thing)
Doom Patrol (the Chief, Elasti-Girl, Negative Man, Robotman, Mento, Beast Boy)
Defenders (Dr. Strange, Namor the Sub-Mariner, Clea, Nighthawk, Power Man)
The X-Men do exist, but they keep themselves out of the public as much as possible, as the anti-mutant sentiment is quite harsh at this time. Its current members are Prof. X, Cyclops, Beast, Marvel Girl, Iceman and Angel.

We have a whole timeline set up, which we can reference for this world if need be. But the cool thing is, your character will know about as much of this world as you do!

So what are we looking for in players and characters? Listen… we want this to be a long lasting RP. I you don’t think you can commit to that, please leave that spot for someone else. I don’t want to sound cruel, but we think this is a really good story with legs. We think we have a good base story. We’re looking for RP’ers that can at least put down a good paragraph or two at least twice a week. While you don’t HAVE to make an original character for this, well wouldn’t that be more fun! Keep in mind these characters are going to be pulled from all kinds of different worlds in the Multiverse. So have fun with it!

Here's the CS we will be using. Feel free to post your perspective characters in this thread. And please remember.. it's first come, first serve. I think we'll go up to 8 players. So feel free to apply for a spot with your character!

Character’s Birth Name:
Alias:
Age:
Home Universe: (Can designate a random number such as Earth-689992 or get creative with how they label their home universe)
Powers: Most players can put ‘Same as Earth 616 Spider-Man’ if that is the case for them, but we also want players to clarify how their powers differ and makes them relatively unique.
Skills: Different from Powers above, as these are what they can do that is not directly related to those powers that they’ve learned before or after acquiring powers.
Equipment:
Brief Bio:


Thanks for reading! Let's make an epic story together!
Love, Camleen/Ash!

Character’s Birth Name: Spider-Slayer Mark XI
Alias: Arachnia, Nia, XI (Eleven)
Age: 5
Home Universe: Earth-X995
Powers:
  • ‘Spider-Sense’. A derivative of Spider-Man’s early warning system, augmented by sensor nodes along her body. Only while used in conjuncture, the Spider-Sense is as strong as Spider-Man’s.
  • Cybernetic Organism. Her form is artificial, but it matches much of the same specs as Spider-Man’s would. Though she can boast being faster. Enhanced strength, enhanced speed, all attributes of her body are ones that are held by the original Spider-Man. Her body also manufactures its own version of ‘webbing’, fired from the back of her hands. The nozzles can automatically changed to allow for different firing patterns of webbing. Finally, with millions of microscopic barbs along her form she can cling to surfaces with ease.
  • Her ‘eyes’ are able to discern both the visible spectrum (visible to humans) and the ‘temperature spectrum’. She is able to see heat spots around her when she chooses. Her eyes are modular, and therefore can be augmented further.
  • She also has wi-fi (ask her for the password!).
Skills:
  • Juggling
  • Playing the violin
  • Speaks just over 300 languages
Equipment:
  • Walkie-talkie
Brief Bio: On her world, the Sino-Soviet Alliance has conquered much of the free world. In 1958 the Chinese and USSR came together with ‘The Sino-Soviet Treaty of Friendship, Alliance and Mutual Assistance’. In the 70’s, agents of the Alliance began discretely reaching out to those in other nations. By the time 1984 had rolled around, the Alliance was well on its way to conquering many of the world’s democratic nations. Including the United States. Spider-Man was a major catalyst in keeping the Alliance out of the northeastern region of the United States. And so the Alliance reaches out to Dr. Spencer Smythe, the man that had already created many of the Spider-Slayer robots. He began working for the Alliance, and was given aid. Anton Vanko and Ivan Kragoff. Using some specks of blood (from one of Spider-Man’s battles), able to splice his DNA into the DNA of a ‘donor’ body, and from that they were able to create a cyborg.
And so the Spider-Slayer Mark XI was created. She was sent after Spider-Man, and he avoided being killed by her. But Black Cat wasn’t so lucky. Spider-Man and XI fought 3 more times, the first 2 times ended with XI being defeated. But in a final effort to fulfill what she saw as her destiny, she was able to kill Spider-Man. She was able to catch him in her webbing, and then shattered his spine. And as he lay dying, he seemed to whisper something.
And when he did… there was something suddenly ‘wrong’ in the cyborg. Something was tripped, something began functioning in her body. A consciousness, perhaps. A spark of true life. A soul? It’s possible the DNA of Peter Parker being infused into her mind had more effect than her creators could have predicted. She was no longer listening to their commands, and ended up destroying the very laboratory she was constructed in.
A short time passes, and XI is in hiding. Much of the world around her is working too hard to keep the Alliance at bay, but they fail. The United States is taken over, finally. The last superpower country to be conquered. Perhaps it’s guilt, or the need to carry on a legacy she can someday be proud of… XI began to work with other super powered beings. None of them trusted her, however. After all, she was created by the Alliance, and she did kill Spider-Man and Black Cat. But over time… she gained their trust by demonstrating over and over again her willingness to sacrifice herself for the better of the world around her. As if that was how she was truly programmed to be.

Character’s Birth Name: Andromeda R. Barton
Alias:Venom, Andy
Age: 16
Home Universe: Earth-1990 a reality similar to the MCU.
Powers: Same as Earth-616 Spider-Man and Venom, with the exception she is still figuring out the full scope of her powers.
Skills: Gifted intellect, knowledgeable in forensics and excellent Scrabble player. Decent cook.
Equipment: Klyntar Symbiote, the source of her power. Without it she is just as vulnerable as any human being.

Brief Bio
The only daughter of a pair of geologists, she was first born and raised in Houston, Texas before her parents took jobs at the New York branch of Stark Industries. She was at first a socially awkward girl who made friends with Peter Parker and Ned her first week at their school. After a (seemingly) chance encounter with Spider-Man, she developed a crush on the hero and followed all the news she could about him.

Her life took a turn when her parents brought home what had been analyzed to be a hunk of unremarkable rock from space. Inside was a Klyntar symbiote who bonded with Andromeda and granted her the ability to mimic Spider-Man’s powers. In time she met Spider-Man and trained with him. Via an accidental touch she gained more of his powers, and also his real identity as her friend Peter.

The two embarked on a partnership, with Andy adopting the name Venom after their first battle with Scorpion. Soon enough however the symbiote caused her to become more aggressive not only in their crime fighting, but also in her pursuit of a more intimate relationship with her partner and friend. Peter rebuked her after one too many overly violent outings, ending their partnership but starting a series of fights as Andy/Venom refused to give up their fantasy.

But tragedy struck when, in the midst of a fight between the two former partners, a mysterious assailant overpowered both and separated them. She only managed to find Peter in time to witness his murder, and the killer running off. Venom took chase after the stranger in a blind rage, unknowingly following him into a vortex that transports her to another Earth.
