WELCOME

There are no heroes. There are no villains. You will have to choose...to build the shackles of the government, or to prevent the chains of tyranny from ever forming. There was a time when the lines were clearly drawn, but now the chains of reality have been broken.

INFO

Open since November 25th, 2012. The setting is summer (May). We have just begun our new site plot. For characters ideas take a look in our Most Wanted List and the I Want You forum.

The idea for BTC was inspired by MCU, Marvel storyline Civil War, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Graphics by Fool. Canon Marvel characters and images are the property of Marvel. Original characters on board are the property of site players.

I was looking around the board and was wondering if it would be cool and plausible to have a section to write Parallel/Alternate Universe stuff about your character, stories, threads etc.

I know most boards have that section, unless I missed it within this board you an disregard this idea.

Not a question but a nifty little link to an app that allows you to make a realistic newspaper headline story. Thought it could look neat in the Daily Bugle section. Realistic Newspaper App

Please to can has, seperate forum for where to put Arrest Reports and other SHIELD only information?

Such as Pinned 'SHIELD TECH' and all that so everyone's on the same page?

We've had two high profile arrests by SHIELD in the last month or so, so I figured making the reports would be fun. I'll put up the template too if you want. ;D

I think that can be arranged.

Get with our SHIELD guru, Ray regarding the arrest reports...he'll be the one with his character heading up and coordinating SHIELD processes if you have any other SHIELDy-type questions. smile.gif

So what exactly do you guys need out of Magneto? I see that you want to talk to whoever takes him before they become accepted so I just thought maybe I'd reverse the project and see what's needed before I submit a profile

Hey!

Basically it's just so we can ask you to pretty please with cherries on top don't make him too over-powered. ^^' He's just one of those characters who tends to be waaay OP, and we want to formally ask ya to sort of work with us with that, make sure you don't power-play or god-mode, that sort of thing.

Well, in terms of over powering him that's not REALLY a big problem for me - I've played him before. Despite his violent and dangerous solutions to the problems that plague the world, Magneto has some semblance of honor. He's an old man whose seen a lot of death and will tend to give people a chance (though only one) before he goes all out. Even then, by this time, he's lost so much (the civil war hurt mutants more than anyone else in the comics) that it's very rare that he'd actually use his full powers.

I expect that by this point Genosha has been destroyed or dissolved (depending on which version of the comics you go with) but I was wondering about Asteroid M - one of the big weaknesses for Magneto in the early comics was always that he needed to constantly maintain his focus on the asteroid to make sure it didn't slip form it's orbit. It wasn't like - I can't stop thinking about the asteroid or it'll plummet - but he would need to make sure it doesn't 'move' out the sweet spot it's in or it could be detected by equipment on earth or - worse - lose it's orbit and THEN plummet. A good way to explain why Magneto has to work hard to fight is because he's keeping asteroid M hidden and aloft. It'd also - to my mind - provide the Brotherhood with a good base and maybe even give Magneto a chance to have certain 'good guy' overtones if he started to let the 'rebels' (for lack of a better word) use Asteroid M to hide young mutants and meta humans.

Another plot that I had for him is that - up until now - he's been imprisoned inside an anti-magnetic field. Used as a lab rat by a team of scientists to try and find a way to counter mutants of his power level - AND to discover where Asteroid M is because his powers and the constant relocation of the base keeps it from being detected even if you're flying past it unless you know where it is. Say he's been locked up for a few years and in all that time he hasn't spoken. It's become sort of a fixation with the scientists to get him to talk. Then one day a mutant - or a team of mutants (or an old friend - maybe even one of Magneto's kids - whatever) accidentally stumbles into the base. The scientists are going to kill the person but Magneto speaks for the first time - telling them not to hurt the mutant/family member/whatever and that he wishes to speak with him/her - and they decide to use that person to try and get the information that they want out of Magneto.

Allowing the person to speak privately with Magneto (though they're monitoring the conversation) the Mutant informs the friend/family member/mutant/whatever that he's dying - saying the strain of keeping Asteroid M hidden and his secrets intact is killing him. The scientists constantly torturing him for information has taken its tole on his body and he's losing the battle. Eliciting sympathy from the 'person' (whatever) he/she puts his/her hand on Magneto's shoulder...

Breaking the anti-magnetic field...

This - of course - allows Magneto to escape. Even when they lock 'the cage' (as they call it) down, now that the anti-magnetic field is disrupted he easily tears his way out and escapes. However, all that time in prison will have left him far weaker than he used to be. Such a development for his character would still allow him to maintain Asteroid M's orbit - but it would 'weaken' him to the point that you guys probably want. Sort of - the mind is willing, but the body is weak and all that.

Again, just suggestions, but unless you guys have anything specific you want out of his profile I'm probably just gonna go ahead and run with it

Hey! Wow, that is a lot of plotty-goodness.

I think I need to talk to Fool to make sure all of that would be fine, but I don't have any particular problem with it..

BUt to clarify, he doesn't literally have to be weakened, for you to play him, we just want to make sure that you don't abuse his powers when playing him 'in character.' If that makes sense?

And as for the whole prisoner thing, I happen to play Noriko Ashida, who has powers over electricity--seems a convenient person to break his anti-magnetic field, though I can't imagine why or how she'd stumble onto a base like that.

But anywho, final statement--let me talk to Fool about this, before I can say definitely yes or definitely no! I just didn't want you to think I was ignoring the post. smile.gif
