  1. Sunrise City, the home to thousands of hard working citizens, as well as a great many criminal elements. Like any big city, crime is a poison that festers within the lower income areas especially. Unbeknownst to the citizens of the city, a group of individuals within the city itself are plotting a scheme that would cement their status as the "Lords" of the city. These individuals belong to a fairly expansive group of men and women, whom with their wealth and ruthlessness have wronged many, whether it be stealing from them, extortion, or murder.

    Meanwhile, Star Labs completed the particle accelerator, a feat which would bring about a new Era in the scientific community. In theory, this achievement would bring about an explosion of new technologies and expand everything known in the many scientific fields. Unfortunately, the accelerator malfunctioned and exploded, creating an intense light that shot into the sky, and sent out a Shockwave that wiped out several city blocks. The storm that ensued from the incident only seemed to make matters worse. Yet, the destruction causes an unexpected side effect. Several individuals have begun to display strange super human Abilities. These individuals are being referred to as Meta-humans, by Star Labs, whom is working on containing and studying these individuals.

    For now, the city is dying, and with the events that have recently transpired, something must be done. This is where you come in. From your various backgrounds, your different goals and methods, you have arrived at a crossroads. Do you use your skills and/or Abilities to benefit your fellow man, to clean up the crime in the streets? Or do you do something more? Or maybe, you wish to join in on the chaos. It's up to you.

    Rules:

    The rules are pretty simple. All of the standard site rules apply.

    Your powers, if you have them, can be just about anything. I would prefer no one be immortal, and that your powers not too amazing.

    You must have viable Weaknesses that I and the opposition can exploit.

    Please be kind to the other players.

    What I Say Goes.

    Two characters at most per player, please.

    More will likely be added.

    Note:
    I am going to trust you guys to elaborate on who your character is, where they've been, what they've done, and what kind of goals they have in character. I feel it adds more depth and character to them when it's done IC.

    Name:

    Vincent Forman

    Age:
    24

    Gender:
    Male

    Aliases:
    Vinny Mac/ Vinny: Friends
    M.V.P: His chosen title
    "Who da hell is that!": Various criminals about to get their faces rearranged.

    Skills:

    - Pickpocket
    - Lockpicking
    - Street fighter specialist
    - Good at different voices
    - Has a 4.0 gpa and a 141 on a Iq test. Both of which he puts to work on solving his everyday "problems".

    Power/s:
    High Durability and Strength:
    Yeah he may have been the guy to get saddled with the generic powers in the entire universe, but hey why fix an old classic that still works. He can at the moment stop/ lift up to 10-15 tons of weight, but still looks to improve.

    Strengths:
    His pride and joy was always his brain, muscles, and his glorious beard (at least in his mind). He was raised to never take his talents for granted as once he got into the world they would be all he has, so this has raised him to be resourceful even with little options at his disposal. His last main strength is his natural charisma that has allowed him to become somewhat of a local hero in the city as he shows up, helps out, makes sure all is safe, and disappears onto the streets once more.

    Weaknesses:
    While he may be a meta-human, he is still human all the same. While his outside is more durable than others he still can be taken down by other things. Ex: Poison, Drowning, Powerful enough explosions, etc.

    He is also human in the way that he makes mistakes, and loves to help the people too much. He would risk life and limb if it involved saving another life...even at the cost of his own.

    Additional Information:
    - Stands at 6'7
    - Accepted to Princeton University
    - Proudly owns his bachelor's degree is psychology
    - Currently has two championship rings during his time playing for the Princeton Tigers.
    - Currently works two jobs. One being Starbucks, and the other being a motivational speaker to the youth today on how to prepare themselves for the outside world.

    Name
    :
    Marinette Vivian

    Age:
    16

    Gender:
    Female

    Aliases:
    Maria, Mary, Mimi - Friends.
    "Cutiepie", "Little firework" - Parents (Mostly mother)
    "Palette", "Shade" - Nicknames amongst criminals, and other heroes.

    Skills:
    -Gymnastic training
    -Parkour (Do not expect her to jump between buildings)
    -Running
    -Innocence (Turning from epic superhero to innocent "cutie pie" every day is quite hard)

    Power/s:
    Color Manipulation: Mary is able to manipulate different shades of colors, 2D drawings, and 3D colors. If 2D, drawings or color will most likely spread from her fingers, like very flat and light paint. If 3D, colors will rise from her body, or contain above her hands. This ability is quite useful in creating "hallucinations", and even for covering Mary from others. Mary is even able to levitate, shooting powerful color gusts from her hands, lifting her up (Although... most of "flights" end with crashing into some evening couple on streets).
    Complete list:
    1.Create/generate/increase, absorb, shape and manipulate colors.(Unlocked - Nearly full level)
    2.Camouflage.(Unlocked - Medium level)
    3.Color Empowerment.(Unlocked - High level)
    4.Flight/Levitation.(Unlocked - Low level)
    5.Light Attacks using colors.(Unlocked - Medium level)
    6.Move at light speed.(Locked)
    7.Blindness inducement.(Locked)
    8.Solidification via controling color.(Unlocked - Medium level)
    9.Photokinetic constructs using colors, including weapons, armor, walls or allies/servants.(Locked - Near unlocking)
    Color-Elemental Contact: As it is known, various colors are used to be representations of various elements, either because of color contained in element, or just because of similarity. Using this connection, Mary is able to manipulate elements to some extent. Due to low training, Mary can only do low level of this ability, simply moving small amount of element she chooses.
    1. Elemental Manipulation.(Unlocked - Low level)

    Strengths:
    Mary is creative and good with her powers, as she usually even draws with them (Mary sometimes earns money through that way). She is extremely innocent, like seriously, VERY innocent. Mary's skills are also used to help her fight sum' criminal scums.

    Weaknesses:
    Mary has short temper, meaning she can attempt to kill you after you insult her too much. She also is too optimistic, always believing in good side. Innocent girl has extreme fear of blood, which reflects on her color powers, so she can heavily use some shades of red, and can't use red itself.

    Additional Information:
    -When accidentally loosing her friend in crowd, she will yell "[insert_friend's_name_here], DARLING WHERE ARE YOU?!" - good advice: don't attempt to flee after that call.
    -Friend of Jack Hampton (Is under heavy spying, because of that)
    -Theme Song: Point Point - All This

    -She changes painting and color of her hair at will, but prefers either galaxies, or stars.

  10. Hey, I'd like to call dibs a super-genius, tech-based character. I'm not sure if they'll have no powers, and just be crazy smart, have smart as their power, or maybe have some other, minor ability, and an incredible intellect on top of that, but they'll certainly have some robotic parts.

    You guys respect dibs, don't you?

  11. I'll try. Maybe go to super power wiki and hit random page, see what power I get randomly. Kupo!

    Or.. I can go with the clawed 'wild woman', the wolverine type. Is that to cliche? Would a teleporter better? Or someone that can control her own density/Massillon? I like the claws idea tho...

    Name
    :
    George Fableton.

    Age:
    15.

    Gender:
    Male.

    Aliases
    :
    "George", "Fable" - By his parents.
    "Daddy's boy" - By haters.
    "Vector", "Force" - Chosen nickname.

    Skills:
    -Selfishness, to an extent that it damages other people.
    -Ability to solve problems with snap of his fingers (Via his personal workers of course).
    -Financial knowledge.

    Power/s:
    Vector Manipulation/Generation: Ability to generate and manipulate vectors, to an extent of redirecting anything and everything. Currently, George is limited to redirecting small and medium attacks, and blocking heavy attacks (except super heavy of course). This ability can be also used to move things, imitating telekinesis.
    Force: Via ability of Vector Manipulation/Generation, George created style of Vector Manipulation/Generation, called "Force". It basically leans on six vectors attached to object, moving it and imitating telekinesis. This ability is only ability that George uses, thinking that it's the "best" and "most useful" for him.

    Strengths:
    George is extremely powerful at his speech, which can damage other people's reputation if it's said right. Secondary, his Force ability is quite strong, so he can possibly throw you away. And... he can mimicry and imitate almost every emotion, so it's possible for him to trick police in his way.

    Weaknesses:
    Absolutely NO IMAGINATION (Like, seriously man! He can't even find a good nickname for himself! Good nickname! Carl! Good nickname!). He usually leans on his powers, forgetting that he can fight with his hands, so he usually is defeated easily in hand-to-hand combat. George also can be idiotic, fighting for his own goal, and forgetting about anything and anyone.

    Additional Information:
    -Bisexual
    -Theme Song: Lido-Money

    -He has group of personal workers, secretly following him by each of his step.
    -He is an EXTREME bishie.
    -His family is one of proclaimed "Lords" of this city, trying their best to state that they are the best.
    -George loves to harm people via his parents and money.

  13. Man, you should fix that. Because, like, holy shit dude.

    That's fucked up.

    I don't know what happened there, but I do know that if that thing was a human, I'd shoot it in the face.
     
  14. This is what happens when you copy text from message editor (like, seriously?! WTF IWAKU?!).
    I have a lot of hard work ahead!
    EDIT: This was simpler than I thought it would be!
    Anyways,
    my gorgeous male bishie is ready!

  15. I think density idea is most original, since I don't remember superheroes with that ability (... Or my memory is shitty).
    Anyways, it's for you to decide! Personally, I like claws and density idea - teleporting is cliche of Sci-Fi, or any superhero franchise for a LONG time now!
     
  16. Density shifting is an existing power in both Marvel and DC, existing in numerous individuals throughout both universes. Notable examples include: The Vision, Kitty Pride, Martian Manhunter, Grey Ghost, and others.


    Also, this raises a question. Does this RP share a universe with any existing superhero continuity? Because there's a pretty big reference to the CW's Flash.
     
  17. This is the same scenario that happened to the Flash so I assume the Flash exists?

    Name
    :
    Jack Hampton.

    Age:
    15.

    Gender:
    Male.

    Aliases:
    P1X_ST3R - Online nickname.
    "Jackie", "Hampy" - Family/Close enough friends.

    Skills:
    -Music skills (He plays three instruments, just for fun.)
    -Powerful sarcasm and lying, to the level of tricking police officers.
    -Medium level of using surrounding objects for various purposes.

    Power/s:
    Water Manipulation/Hydrokinesis: Ability to manipulate water, to extent of creating various structures, sapient "golems", and even draining water out of solid organic objects: plants, animals... humans? Due to being messed up, this power often breaks out. As side effect, Jack can clearly see and hear underwater. Because of this ability, Jack (And, apparently, his whole family) is under heavy control pressure.
    Water Empowerment: As side-ability of Hydrokinesis, this power basically increases users power when he/she is near water. Since Jack's Hydrokinesis is messed up, being near water is often dangerous and damaging for him. If this ability evolves, Jack can be powered even by water particles in the air.

    Strengths:
    Jack has high pain barrier, both physical and mental. This occurred due to his heavy life, always under control of police. All his mentioned skills are often used to get away from police, or help him to survive in this dark, dark city.

    Weaknesses:
    First of all, Jack has high morale standards, which means that he can't typically harm anyone or anything. His abilities are also a weakness, damaging everything and everyone out of his will. Jack also can't do anything if he already had bad impression of it. That applies to Hydrokinesis too - he just can't get over it.

    Additional Information:
    -His family is considered somewhere "between" two sides, currently appearing in Sunrise City.
    -Jack often talks through Internet chat, rather than actually meeting people in real life.
    -Theme Song: Sea Of Voices(Remix) - Antics (Original belongs to Porter Robinson))

    -Friend of Marinette Vivian ("I love crazy people - life is more interesting with them")
    -Pansexual
    -His family is under strong control of police, and other armed forces (As mentioned in Power/s).
    -When angry, water can lightly vibrate after each beat of his heart.
