Axel is a (very minor) Cosmic Entity incarnated in human form; his purpose is to prevent reality from breaking into separate universes (the opposite of the original character) due to things like time travel. However, he doesn't know that yet. As far as he knows, he's just an Empire State University student, and his biggest current dilemma is which girl he likes better, Ming (Marvel) or Caitlin (DC) (in the comics they cheated by having him unable to stay in either universe for long). Then strange things began happening to him. Why does he keep running into metahumans and mutants all the time now? As team teleporter, he helps the other supers move around more easily and efficiently.
- Butt Monkey: He really is.

One day Chronos, a petty thief who could travel no more than two minutes into the future or the past, broke into the Museum one night to steal Dr. Doom's Time Platform, and travel into the distant past, where he would be a threat. Without sparing a moment, Michael smashed the casing of the Mystery Hero's Power Suit, which he had tinkered with in his own spare time (after Skeets would disable the cameras,) and put it on, leaping after Chronos into the 21st century. In the past, things would be different. In the past, He would be different. Unique. He could be great.
Before his manifestation, Armondo was cautious and shrewd, very active, a man of action and few words but quite humble with a good grasp of his limitations. He was also quite the lady's man, using an aura of cute but complicated to reel in the women. However, Darwin has become one of those mutant who let his powers define him. He is fearless and brash, very lazy, quick to loose his tongue and extremely arrogant. His current appearance, as well as a slight caustic personality, cripples his romantic prospects. Occasionally, the old Armondo shines through.

Megan Morse/ Miss Martian
Miss Martian is a bubbly, really sweet, polite and caring girl. Although she's occasionally shy and quite inexperienced, she'll go to great lengths to make sure everyone is pleased with her work. She's also very unfamiliar with Earth customs, and will sometimes mess up thanks to how different Mars' society is from Earth's.If you ask her, this is what she'll tell you: M'gann is Martian Manhunter's niece, and her uncle has kindly taken her to Earth for a visit that was quickly extended into what can soon become a permanent stay on this nice little planet called Earth.
Moon Knight/Marc Spector
Moon Knight is a quiet and enigmatic figure; one could also say he's weird and a bit of a creep, though above all, he's a compassionate figure. Though he tries to put on a facade of being reserved and introspective, Moon Knight's naiveté and optimism are quite clear, and he's not above teasing. Marc Spector is quite a bit different from Moon Knight. Though he's often quiet and empathic when not in a stressful situation, Marc Spector is more fidgety than his superhero alter-ego, and insecure about himself and his history. Marc is estranged from his family.
Born to then-budding programmer Zane Starr and painter and designer Allison Starr, Karen has always felt alone. Even in the company of peers who shared her aptitude in programming, she'd always felt like she didn't belong - an outlook that only intensified at the onset of her powers during her mid-teens. The natural development of her powers could only mean she was a mutant, and thus she did her best to hide her 'condition' from everyone, even her parents. Her curiosity, however, would lead her to experimenting with her newfound powers whenever she could – lifting junked cars, leaping ever-greater distances, and the like. The development her body underwent thanks to her powers – and perhaps because of her 'strength tests' as well – would serve to further fuel her insecurity, forcing her to resort to hiding her unusually-enhanced physique under ever-baggier clothes and deepening slouches.At 20, while off at college, her parents were caught in a car accident and did not survive. Karen was distraught, wondering if with her powers she could have saved them if she was nearby. Now feeling more alone than ever, her mourning never really ended, even when she eventually moved to Brooklyn in New York to pursue her career as a programmer. She all but shut herself off from other people, interacting with clients primarily from behind the anonymity of a computer screen. Still, she continued her experimentation with her powers whenever she could, her curiosity about them never really sated.It was later on that she heard of various other 'metaheroes' appearing, using their powers to aid in stopping crime, assist in disasters, and combat their 'metacriminal' opposites. A part of her told herself that she was doing this to try and ensure that nobody else would suffer the same tragedy she did... but another, selfish part of her thought of it as the ultimate rush; the ultimate escape from her loneliness. She would be a figure with seemingly nothing to hide; a 'hero' who people would remember, rather than just another face that would blend into the background, to be forgotten. Thus, after several botched (and rather embarrassing) debuts, Power Girl appeared: a tough, headstrong, sometimes-hammy metahero who endeared herself to the populace (though her occasional collateral damage annoyed others to no end; she was all too happy to return and help rebuild, though).Only one person discovered – and now keeps – her secret: Nicholas Cho, a fellow programmer. The young man inadvertently stumbled upon her when he came to visit her on a sick day - in reality, she had just-then developed her heat vision, and ended up causing damage to her apartment trying to get it under control. At first wary of her powers, he soon grew to consider her a close friend, especially since he had heard of her exploits as Power Girl – and the introverted Karen grew to trust him as well. Their close bond would become much more integral over the course of several more years, as Nicco would aid Karen in keeping her secret, and on occasion even help her at her 'other job' whenever he could via investigation, hacking, and even procuring materials for her current costume.
- Rapid-Fire Typing: Does it impressively while helping Tony and JARVIS defend against a virus attack.

Rocket Raccoon is a member of a race of genetically altered wildlife that was given both bipedal movement and sapience to become workers of their planet turned insane asylum by advanced robots who were the original caretakers up until their creators left the planet and isolated it from the rest of the galaxy (long story, don't ask). Rocket himself was formerly the head of the planet's security bureau, protecting the inhabitants not only from threats of invaders but also acted as the head of police on the planet as well. He was also the hero of the planet's greatest civil conflict, the Toy Wars, a massive conflict between the corrupt CEOs of two rival toy companies that sold toys to the humanoid charges of the animals, affectionately called "Loonies", and both of whom wished to obtain the planet's Holy relic, Gideon's Bible, the psychiatric diary containing all the knowledge and finding by the planet's original inhabitants, called the "Shrinks." Rocket managed to stop the plans of both sides, even after they teamed up to kill off the raccoon.After the war, Rocket and his friend presented the Bible to the robots, whom still provided the animals with the equipment and materials needed for their jobs, and the head robot used the knowledge and power gained from the relic to create device that managed to permanently cure the mental ailments of humanoid charges. The former Loonies, forever grateful for their years of services, offered Rocket, his people, and all the robots to be their assistants and entertainers as they planned their future.While some stayed behind, most of the animals and robots decided to leave their home planet and explore the universe, forging their own destinies. Rocket Raccoon himself decided to become a bounty hunter and mercenary, and quickly built up a reputation as one of the best and most efficient, making him somewhat of a rival to the infamous Czarnian bounty hunter Lobo. His latest commission though takes him to some backwater blue planet by the completely "original and imaginative" name of Earth. Normally Rocket would not think twice about turning down a commission like that, but it came directly from the Guardians of the Universe, the Leaders of the Green Lantern Corp, and under the recommendation of Green Lantern Chip Squirrel, a friend of Rocket. He also became interested when the Oans directly told him the details of this mission...

Storm/ Ororo Munroe
Born to N'Dare and David Munroe, Storm lives in New York, where she was orphaned at age 6 by a terrorist attack. Almost crushed under the rubble, she developed severe claustrophobia, and therapy at a foster home has only diminished the fear a little. Her powers manifested a few years ago, and she was recruited to the Academy at the age of 14.Quiet and stoic. She has a softer side and feels it her duty to protect people; her strong power (in her opinion) can give her a tendency to try to handle things on her own when she really would need backup.

The Wasp/ Janet van Dyne
Despite being the daughter of brilliant physicist and businessman Vernon van Dyne, Jan had never really had any more than a casual interest in science or business. While she did undergo training in lab tech and managerial duties, mostly to mollify her father, she more often used his money to throw parties and charity events or to indulge in her hobby of fashion design.That changed one day when, while she was working in her father’s research facility, a freak lab accident demolished the lab and killed the senior van Dyne. The staff that did make it out only survived thanks to Jan and one of her father’s post-docs, Dr Hank Pym, who helped the evacuation effort using a pair of experimental suits built around Hank’s own life’s work - the matter-altering Pym particle. Once the dust had settled, the pair found themselves in an on-again off-again relationship, with Jan acting as secretary and manager of Hank’s new lab.It wasn’t all smooth sailing from there, though, with the pair frequently clashing over how to best use the Pym particle technology. Hank abhors violence and believes that the scientific endeavour is the best way to help improve society, while Jan is convinced that their time would be better spent using their powers to go out in the world and fight supervillains. Recently, the couple had a major falling out when Hank discovered she had weaponised a Pym-Palmer test suit by purchasing a set of palm-mounted energy projectors. This led to a rehash of the same familiar arguments until, sick of what she saw as Hank’s stifling lack of initiative, Jan took her modified suit and left the lab, striking out on her own. Inspired by the yellow and black markings on the test suit, she now calls herself the Wasp, although she doesn't really make much effort to hide her identity.
Werewolf by Night
Jacob is fundamentally a nice person who cares for all innocents of the world, especially those who are cursed or monstrous and who others might spurn and be prejudiced against. However, he also has a very notable dark side which has built up as a result of past experiences and will use heavy violence whenever necessary. He has a dark and jaded view of the world and sometimes doubts his own ability but overall considers it his duty to protect the innocent and punish the guilty. When it is unleashed, the beast is a wild and feral creature and tends to go to utter extremes with its violence but it has been touched by Jacob's experience and is no simple beast. It doesn't have the complex world view or contemplative thoughts of the man but the beast itself is a force for good, a primal defender of the innocent and hunter of predators.Regarding his origins: A long time ago Gregori Russoff was bitten by a werewolf and although the curse was passed down to his descendants, as his children were already born when he was bitten it was dormant. A long time later Gregory Russoff, a Transylvanian baron, attempted to use the power of the Darkhold, a book of powerful but evil magic. This reactivated the curse in Gregory and his two children, Jacob and Lissa. While the children did not start transforming until they were older, Gregory became a werewolf and sent his family away to keep them safe before he was eventually killed by an angry mob. Jacob and his sister were raised by his mother and step-father, the family taking the step-father's name of Russel in Los Angeles. While his childhood had unpleasant events within it and he was always aware that his step-father was not his actual father, his childhood was overall fairly happy. Eventually the children grew up and when they became eighteen, started turning into werewolves three nights a month around a full moon. The beast was savage but as Jacob fought to control it, he eventually brought the curse under his control. While Lissa had her curse removed by a sorcerer, Jacob gained the ability to control his wolf form and transform at will, changing back to his previous name when he finally accepted the beast within him, experiencing dark parts of the world as he tried to become a hero but ultimately emerging as a champion of the supernatural and defender of the innocent.

Tony was always an obvious genius and mechanical prodigy, taking after his father, Howard Stark.

A couple years later, while presenting his latest missile upgrades in Afghanistan, Tony's convoy was attacked and he was severely injured with shrapnel caused by his own weaponry. His life was saved in something of a last-ditch effort via installment of an electromagnet to keep metal shards from ripping apart his heart, and he was held prisoner with another inventor, Ho Yinsen, who helped Tony create the arc reactor to save his life, and the prototype Iron Man armor that was to help them escape, if Yinsen had not been killed by a stray bullet in the attempt.

"Because you want to know the truth, New Yorkers? These fellas... are not going to help you. You see, all they do is go after people like me! Screw the population. They think they're justice avengers or something stupid like that, while I'm walking around, free as a daisy! And look at that! Who warned you about the impending doom? Who warned you about what you should do? Your pal, Joker! This is your chance, New Yorkers! Remember New York: they're not going to protect you, so you have to do it for yourself! Drink a glass of water and go out and smile, darn ya, SMILE!"Current location unknown.
"I'M NOT LANGSTROM! I'M MAN-BAT! YOU ALL MEAN NOTHING TO ME! I WILL KILL YOU! I WILL VIOLATE YOU ALL, AND I WILL FEAST UPON YOUR BROKEN CORPSES! I-I'LL DO IT! YOU'RE JUST HUMAN RATS! I DON'T NEED TO SAVE YOU FROM THEM! I'M PERFECT! YOU'RE FILTH! YOU'RE NOTHING! ZILCH! THAT'S ALL YOU ARE! NOTHING!"Once a brilliant but unremarkable psychiatrist, Kirk Langstrom quickly befriended Rogue and Blue Beetle, but gradually turned to evil just as he gradually succumbed to the violent urges of his mutate alter-ego, Man-Bat. After being beaten and detained by the police, Man-Bat quickly joined forces with the Joker, and slowly fell in love with the perky Harley Quinn, while he devised a safe cure for the metahuman genome. Unfortunately, Joker only sought to use Man-Bat to destroy New York. After poisoning Harley Quinn with Man-Bat's contaminated blood and allowing the two lovers to leave his hideout, Joker turned Man-Bat's mutant genome inhibitor into a mutant genome booster and contaminated dozens of gang members with Man-Bat's blood, causing immense mutant riots in New York.Man-Bat died with most of his brood during the riots, after a young mutant named Leech overdosed on the Metahuman genome cure. Though he was a murderer and a megalomaniac, Man-Bat ultimately died as a man, not a monster, by Rogue.Though Man-Bat is dead, She-Bat and her gang of Minion-Bats continue his violent legacy.
She-Bat, previously known as Harley Quinn
"New York will become our nest."The Clown Prince of Crime's helpful assistant, Harley Quinn did as she was asked, getting into a friendly romance with Langstrom in order to convince him to work for the Joker. However, the Joker ended up poisoning Harley with Langstrom's blood in order to make sure he really wouldn't leave, which ended up turning his sweet lover into the murderous She-Bat. Free of Joker's "control" over her mind, She-Bat uses all the knowledge Harley had (since she was a psychiatrist at Arkham at one point) and marries it with a xenophobic desire to take over the world and an undying love for Man-Bat.Her current location is unknown.
Mortimer Gloom was long ago The Weeper, before he went on his crusade of absolute annihilation of everything, to send it all screaming into oblivion. He was a normal man before tragedy sent him into a psychotic break. Placed into Arkham Asylum, his rehabilitation went well. He found Buddhism, which helped him find peace. He was released, a cured man. He travelled the world then, and on his travels, he met a man on a lonely rode and the two spoke at great lengths until Mortimer realized he had been led into the middle of nowhere. That's when the man revealed to him his true form, The Fear Lord D'Spayre. He tore away the thin veneer of sanity holding back Mortimer's pathological misery, tearing away his wants and desires as the Buddha had, but warped by mortal madness and immortal evil. The Weeper, with newfound items that give him the powers necessary to destroy a person through their emotions, now follows a twisted form of Buddhism, believing in it as whole heartedly as only a fanatic and psychopath can. That one does not achieve Enlightenment and breaks the cycle of reincarnation, is a choice, a choice one makes because they continued to be deluded by the lies of happiness in life.The Weeper was killed- or at least it seems like he was killed- after trying to cover the city in a dome that boosted negative emotions.
"With all that newfound power, I will transcend existence. The universe will be my playground. I will do whatever I desire. I will create new civilizations, and I'll watch as they pray to me every night. I'll put them in wars against each others, and once I'm bored enough... I'll make them kill each other. Just for fun. [chuckles] I can barely contain my excitement!"Klarion was originally a lone human boy, living in Greece during the Ancient Times. While playing in one of the caves, he found an intergalactic demon, which soon possessed him to have some fun in the human world. When it came time to leave, the demon found himself face-to-face with a problem: Klarion didn't want to leave. As a result, the two merged, becoming a powerful, reality warping Lord of Chaos. He may look and talk like an adult, but Klarion is a child at heart, fuelled by a terrifying desire to turn the universe into his own personal plaything.Klarion was stripped of his powers and sent to an alternate dimension by Raven and the Team, after he put on a spell that switched the ages of the people of New York, turning kids into adults and vice versa.
The Music Meister
"I am the one who deserves Virginia! Not you, Stark!"Back in her college years, Virginia Potts once helped a poor boy that was being bullied.

Throughout the years, he attempted various lavish crimes to grab Pepper's attention and conquer her back, but all his plans were thwarted by Iron Man (whilst he was dealing with bigger fish). This led to Billy adopting the persona of the Music Meister, a villain bent on destroying his archenemy Tony Stark and getting back his true love Pepper Potts.He was hired by an unknown millionaire with the mission to kill Tony Stark. No one believed he could do it, until he hypnotized Tony with his song and almost made him commit suicide by self-immolation, but Tony fought back, with the help of the team, and defeated the Music Meister.

Richard Fisk, AKA The Rose

Personality: Good hearted, soft-spoken, and somewhat naive, Jacob fears he will never feel fully comfortable in the modern world. Yet, believing God gave him powers and put him on Earth to help people, Jacob soldiers on.Origin: In all the endless history of this living Universe (excluding creatures such as the Dark Elves, who lived in the Time of Darkness, or Galactus who lived in a Universe before ours, or Eternity and the Living Tribunal, who have existed since the dawn of any creation), there is said to be no race older than the Guardians of Oa.

But there was perhaps none greater among these ancient worlds, these first races, than the Kherubim of Khera. Blessed with fantastic powers under their Golden Life-Giving Sun, the Kherubim lived in peace for hundreds and thousands of years, creating, discovering, and inventing, hoping to shape the future.

Wolverine is a serious, sombre person, something one would easily expect from a man who had very much personal pain and hardship. He may seem rather abrasive and outright anti-social at times, but to those who take the time and have the patience to get to know him will find him to be a very fierce and loyal friend. However he tends to get along much better with teen aged girls for some reason, and is very protective of women in general, but despite this he tends to avoid romantic relationships if possible, do to his history of failed relationships, either involving the woman he loved horrifically betraying him, or involving the woman he loved being horrifically murdered in front of him.
The very definition of impulsive. Despite his unusual history, he is basically an ordinary teenager. He doesn't listen to authority, there is this thing called patience that he doesn't understand, he gets bored easily, he has a false sense of invulnerability, and he likes to play video games and eat a lot. He seems to switch between being the most hyperactivity kid ever, and someone who is as cool and as calm as ice. He's a nice guy, funny, a good friend, and he is surprisingly popular with the ladies. He wants to help people and is determined to be a great hero some day. Bart has very little knowledge of the present day. He has a strong level of hero worship for his grandfather.
Wally is a gift from god- We mean, an egotistical wise-cracking young man who always has an eye out for the ladies and is often characterized as being annoying. You see, Wally can be irresponsible and impatient... and he can also treat gigantic threats with a funny comment (or a failed attempt at one)... but he's also friendly, compassionate, heroic and brave, being a very down-to-earth idealistic hero, genuinely caring for the people he protects.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Though not everyone is happy about it, like Robbie.
Betsy is the adopted daughter of Captain James Braddock of Britain's Royal Navy – a man known for his equal measures of stern leadership and kind, patient mindset. The two met at an orphanage in Europe, where Betsy had been staying after a terrorist attack left her without her immigrant family. Both were looking for companionship at the time: James had lost his wife to disease only a year prior, and the fish-out-of-water Betsy was having trouble fitting in with her fellows at the orphanage. With the urging of young Brian, who was rather excited to have a sister, Betsy was taken in. Both filled a gap for each other: James' wife, Elizabeth Sr., had always talked of wanting a daughter, and James saw this as a way to fulfill her wish in some way. Betsy, meanwhile, became lucky enough to experience the joy of having a family once more. Most of her young life consisted of private classes with trusted teachers and instructors, and had her accompany James and Brian to Navy bases for events and such, making her familiar with many of her adoptive father's colleagues in the Royal Navy.Today, Betsy is known for being a brilliant adventure writer, whose stories of the swashbuckling heroine 'Lily Fatecarver' spanned the globe, told with incredible detail and accuracy. She is also known for being very reclusive; nobody knows what she looks like now, her life having been hidden from prying eyes for some time since she was adopted. Naturally, that part is an elaborate cover-up; Elizabeth does travel – but with different names every time, allowing her the freedom of exploration and research for her work without the press, the fans, or anyone else hounding her at every step. Though an odd life borne out of Betsy's bouts of wanderlust, Betsy herself wouldn't have it any other way.

Despite the near thousands of lovers that have sexed her, her heart belongs only to Long Shot.
