You know how Marvel has like, the Ultimate Line, and Spider-Verse, and things like that? Think of this that way. PLOT In A World Where superheroes are just another facet of daily life, a young man named Max Miller is bitten by a nanotech spider and gains DIGITAL SPIDER POWERS which are a lot like normal Spider-Man powers but with a cyberpunk aesthetic. Inspired by Spider-men of old like Peter Parker (dead), Ben Reilley (super dead), and Miles Morales (still swinging), he decides to take on his own Spider mantle, by taking on the long-vacant Scarlet Spider identity. But he's not alone in his new crime-fighting duties as he has (Y/C-1), childhood friend, love interest and gadgeteer who outfits him with their advanced technology, and decides that if you can't knock some sense into your dumb best friend, you might as well join him in crime fighting. Of course, what's a hero without a villain, and what's a Spider-Man without a greatest failure? (Y/C-2) is Max's other childhood best friend, who, jealous of being left out of superhero shenanigans, sneaks into the same abandoned science facility Max got bit at, only to break open a canister of some sort of black goo... THE NITTIE GRITTIES Basically, what I'm trying to do here is establish a sort of Marvel-verse that isn't quite like any of the others. Things don't have to be contained in one thread, as I feel like that would be a bit on the chaotic side. The main focus of the RP would be on rookie heroes trying to make their mark on a world where heroes are sort of in a decline. Of course, we can decide on the specifics as a group.LOOKING FOR Right now I'm only looking for two SPECIFIC characters - Y/C-1, as detailed in the plot, who would be akin to Mary Jane, Ned Leeds and a young Tony Stark all rolled into one. I don't care about gender, or personality specifics, just the role they're occupying. Their superhero identity is all up to you. - Y/C-2, as detailed in the plot, who is basically Venom (although they don't have to go by that specific moniker). Again, gender and specific personality doesn't matter, but they have a grudge against Max. I'd like to RP the night in which this character gains their powers possibly, as Max would have attempted to stop them. Otherwise: - Anyone who's interested in this sort of roleplay! Feel free to bring along your original superheroes, your versions of Marvel (or even DC honestly) superheroes, or even just play supporting or bit parts. ===== Let me know if you have any questions, concerns, etc. I'm new here so sorry if I'm doing anything wrong.
