Tyrith: The hope came less from whether it was kosher and more about whether there was a 4th person who could live up to the high standards of Mutants First.

Im tired of waiting(im impatient)

ADD DaddyTorgo (Professor X) TO TEAM SILVER MOON

Possible change of team name will have to wait for entire team to be here, but id certainly be open to the idea. I wont accept a name like "Professor X is the best hero ever," but i certainly understand it not being fair only two heroes are recognized in the name. I think a team name that does not recognize and hero would be ideal, as it might become important in time to cut loose or add certain members.

I'm not an expert, but I have a decent grounding for some of these characters. These are very simplified.

Hulk- Wimpy but super smart scientist Bruce Banner turns into the Hulk under stressful situations. The Hulk is incredibly strong, and incredibly hard to hurt, but isn't very smart (HULK SMASH). Typically hits very hard and is very hard to hurt with physical attacks.

Silver Surfer- Assistant to Galactus, Destroyer of Worlds, but he only took that job to save his homeworld. He's relatively omnipotent. Super fast, almost indestructible (as is his board, although it has been destroyed very rarely, he can just regenerate it), and strong. I'd expect him to have strong attacks, some sort of mobility (time, space, dimension) based power, and maybe minor healing.

Magneto- Holocaust survivor who is one of the strongest mutants alive. He can manipulate metal with his mind, and most things are made out of metal. He is the leader of the Brotherhood of Mutants, which believes that mutants are the next step in evolution, and therefore should rule over lesser beings (i.e. everyone else). Also had a big fallout with Prof. X Helmet makes him immune to telepathic attacks, expect abilities based off of his control of metal.

Moon Knight- Don't know much about him, but he's more or less a glorified vigilante/super-spy. At night he gets enhanced physical abilities. He's well trained in most combat arts. Expect strong attacks, both melee and ranged based, don't use psionic stuff on him.

Prof. X- Founder of the X-Men, believes mutants should live in harmony with humans. Incredibly strong telepath, he can manipulate objects with his mind, go into your mind, pretty much anything you can imagine a telepath doing, he can. He also has a machine to find mutants anywhere, anytime. Expect very strong mental abilities.

Warpath- No clue.

Storm- X-Man who can manipulate the weather. This allows her to fly via wind currents, control lightning, make earthquakes, adjust moisture, things like that. I'd expect a relatively diverse portfolio of attacks and abilities based off of such broad abilities.

I have to go to dinner, but I'm sure others can correct my mistakes and do the others as well.

JOIN TEAM SILVER MOON


And I agree with what you said about the name of our band of heroes. I was actually hoping for more of the latter and certainly not the former, although that may be true

Well, you know how rarely I post when I'm playing a game. I'm lucky to get more than 3 posts per cycle!

Dr. Doom, I agree that DOOM should be capitalized, but I must insist that we leave it open for new members to join, thus I must disagree with "and Associated Lackeys." & Co. will hopefully attract a higher pedigree of teammate. Regardless, I note you have not yet actually joined forces with me, and surely sooner is better than later with such enemies afoot.

That rounds out our 4 for now, though we will certainly entertain any more requests for membership if the hero meshes well with our current assortment.

Path, Mr. W, DT..do you all want to wait until tomorrow to consider who our target for day 1 will be?

Ha! The fools delayed our dining time. Now they shall suffer!

Hawkeye- Don't know much about him except he's an expert archer.

Gambit- X-Man who can charge things with kinetic energy. I don't remember his backstory, except he's Cajun. The iconic Gambit attack involves charging cards from a deck and throwing them at his enemies, but he can charge anything (that's not living) with his deadly energy. Extremely agile, he also is immune to telepathic abilities. Expect strong attacks involving his kinetic energy, as well as some ability based off his exceptional charm.

Daredevil- Matt Murdock was blinded in a terrible accident, but his other senses have evolved, and he also has a radar sense. Basically, his senses except sight are the best they can be (he can hear a heartbeat from like 20' away, analyze speech patterns, etc). Imagine what super sense could do, then combine that with superb martial arts and acrobatics.

Alright, going for real.

Cannonball checking in here. I likely won't be able to contribute much until tomorrow though.

:::looks around at the other heroes and villains in awe:::

"Ah' don't know how I made it here with the rest of you, but I'm ready and willing to team up with my fellow X-Men or any of you other heroes. That is your thinking its wise for us all to team up."

I do not understand the earth fascination with ego, the name can and should be changed to what serves the team best.

Very well, we shall use your name. Remember, compromise is not a word Doom uses very frequently, so savor your victory .. for now.

When Barkeep originally suggested it, the first thing that popped to my mind was a mechanism similar to the crown a king game. After a while you can predictably estimate the total score expected for a team's "attack" you can also figure in their team attack bonus. If you end up with a team that for some reason ends up with some kind of penalty (like the one you would get from a bad guy being in the team sabotaging the team's effort), you can then perhaps narrow down where one bad guy might be.

he might have a different idea of where he is coming from though, but this is what popped into my head when he first said it.

Oh, and Cannonball would not be completely outside the realm of possibility since he is an Avenger in the future. (For reference, The Last Avengers Story)

LSG, for reference, I have highlighted in Green Avengers past and present.

Purple highlights to memebrs of the Avengers that I smply can't work with. That Tony Stark is simply too uppity for me, and we've never gotten along, even when he was on my team I preferred Rhodey in the suit. Hulk is too violent, although he varies, and if this is the Banner's-personality-inside-the-Hulk Hulk, then he'd be fine.

Yellow highlights to members of the Avengers in either the future or alternate universes.

Blue highlights to serious Avengers allies who would mesh well on a team.

Hawkeye, or should I say Clint, you've always been arrogant and rash. One should not be so judgmental. I've not done anything wrong and would make a fine Avenger once again.

I've been cleared of any wrong doing and have always done what I thought was right. I was even appointed Secretary of Defense. Meanwhile you tried to help Black Widow steal my technology to help the Commies. It would be foolish for Monica to trust you.

Indeed, isn't it better to join an honest, smart, and powerful team than one that hides behind a web of lies?

Dr. Doom and myself are looking for additional worthy and genetically appealing individuals...

Cannonball- No clue.

Dr. Doom- Dr. Doom is the dictator of the "enforced monarchy" in Latveria. Incredibly arrogant, but also incredibly smart, he has suffered many hardships in life. As a result of an accident and then putting a burning hot iron mask on his face, he is horribly disfigured, which does not gel with his vanity. Nonetheless, he is very powerful, thanks to his scientific genius and other abilities. I'd expect powers relating to his control over powerful Doombots, mystical abilities like attacks and body switching, as well as other abilities generated from a nuclear-powered super suit, and his genius.

Mystique- Often aligned with Magneto and his Brotherhood of Mutants, Mystique is not too nice. I don't know much else of her background, but Mystique is a shapeshifter. She can change make virtually any aspect of her appearance-including clothes, fingerprints, retinas, etc. She also heals really well and is a trained combatant.

Captain Marvel- Again, somewhat fuzzy here. I'm not sure which incarnation of Cap. Marvel we're talking about here, but it's generally the same story, and powers are pretty much identical. Marvel is an alien who has helped earthlings many times. He has an interesting array of powers, including limited precognition, strength, energy blasts. However, he needs to convert solar energy for these, so without starlight he's significantly weakened, although he still has many high-tech weapons and tools. Powers would probably include strong energy attacks, something tied to his ability to see the future and determine enemies' weaknesses, and his tactical brilliance.

Wolverine- Logan was experimented on by the Weapon X program way back when (his age is in the triple digits). Very gruff, likes cigars. He is an X-Man, and his powers are quite formidable. He regenerates, is very fast, has super strength, and an extremely acute sense of smell. Oh, and these three claws on each hand, part of his adamantine skeleton. I expect his powers in-game to fall along those lines.

Spider-Man- Again, someone you probably know. Peter Parker was bitten by a spider, great power, great responsibility, yadda yadda yadda. Powers include super strength, speed, agility. He can shoot spiderwebs to move fast, tie up enemies, or for any variety of purposes. He's also a brilliant scientist. I'm going to go ahead and guess you all know Spidey well enough to stop there.

Captain Britain- Don't know the backstory too well, but he's very similar in power to Captain America. Britain has the same super speed, strength, and agility as Cap, but he can also fly. He generally has a more mystical feel, I seem to recall something about a wizard or somesuch. He also has some immunity to psychic abilities. Oh, and he's a combat whiz.

Deadpool- A cheap knockoff of DC's Slade, Deadpool is an evil mercenary and combatant. He's also incredibly stupid. Despite that set back, few can match his combat prowess. A premier assassin, Deadpool has a very nifty tricks besides a vast knowledge of unarmed and martial combat. He's got regenerative healing, super reflexes, strength, etc. Powers would likely include lots of ways to kill you, mostly through physical means. He does have lots of criminal contacts, and also a device that allows for minor teleportation.

Mandarin- No clue.

Mathemanic- Uhhh, doesn't need a calculator?

Captain America- Steve Rogers was injected with the Super Soldier Serum, Cap has been the symbol of America and Patriotism ever since. He's got all the super strength, reflexes, and agility you could want, as well as this nifty, indestructable shield. Basically, he's the best possible at physical activities a human could be. Expect powers based on his leadership, unequaled tactical genius, shield throwing/bashing, and good ol' fist-pounding.

Juggernaut- Someone else who I don't know the backstory too, but still wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. Jugs is usually aligned with evil and the Brotherhood of Mutants. His big thing (aside from his large physical size) is inertia. Once he gets going, nothing, I mean nothing can stand in his way. He also has super strength and resistance to most physical attacks. Like Magneto (and most other people), he is quite vulnerable to telepathic assault, so he wears a helmet that makes him relatively immune, like Magneto. Powers will most likely be based on his inertia, ability to crush you, and various resistances/immunities.

I hope these help a little bit. There'll be more later, but I must be off.

LSG is Monica Rambeau, the second Captain marvel - not an alien, just a person with a cool set of powers.

This isn't really helpful in any way aside from just a possible role-play element, but Cain Marko (Juggernaut's "real" name) is the half-brother of Charles Xavier.

Plus Jugg is not a mutant but enhanced by a mystical doo-dad of some sort. I've heard he's reformed now, but I don;t know. I'd always be willing to help out those trying to leave behind their darker days, like when I led the Thunderbolts
