Main Roleplay YMMV
You wake up in Manhattan, in the ruins of the
. Or in New Mexico, in a research facility deep under the desert. Or in Seattle, in a high-rise building on the West Coast. You're on Earth, but not
- if Earth was ever yours in the first place. There used to be people like you - powerful people,
- but they're all gone. No one will tell you why, even if you ask nicely.
You wake up in a different world with different rules, but at least you wake up still you.
This game provides examples of: Action Girl: If she's a girl, she's probably an Action Girl. Subverted, always, with Gert Yorkes. All Trolls Are Different Alternate Universe: Obviously. Be Careful What You Wish For: Characters were trapped in a dystopian pocket universe that took their fondest wishes and twisted them until they were almost unrecognizable. Badass Normal: The Batfam, Sokka, Sulu and Kirk. Big Bad: The Capekillers. Big Damn Heroes: Epic teamups result every time a Big Bad threatens. Big Screwed-Up Family: A few, like the Batfamily, the Magneto Clan and everyone from the Adultpocalypse AU. Break the Cutie: What this universe threatens to do on a daily basis. Brought Down to Normal: Superpowers — ALL of them — were lost, without warning, during a solar eclipse. Cool Horse: Our My Little Pony cast. Death Takes a Holiday Dead Sidekick Elemental Powers: Between all the fire kids, those crazy benders, and the plethora of element-controlling X-Men, about a hundred Captain Planets could be summoned. Empire with a Dark Secret: The Capekillers ARE the original heroes. The Big Reveal kicked off with the presumed death of Ult!Jan by the hands of a Capekiller near and dear. Everything's Better with Rainbows Everything's Better With Sparkles: Karolina Dean, Dazzler and Pixie. Evil Twin Eye Beams: No, Megan Kinney doesn't have them... yet. For Science! For Want of a Nail: Quite a few of the alternate universe characters ended up where they are because of this. Fountain of Youth: Each city was overrun by children when a mysterious force de-aged them. Fourth Wall: Shattered on a daily basis by Leonard Hofstadter of all people. Oh, and this guy, too. "Freaky Friday" Flip Hero with Bad Publicity: All of them, really, but especially Tony Stark and the Horsemen. Heterosexual Life-Partners: Too many to count, but all qualify as epic bromances. Horrible Judge of Character: Leonard Hofstadter is friends with Maxine Lord, GLaDOS and Eddie Nygma. Can't make a sane friend to save his life, apparently. It Amused Me: Capekillers trolling the network. Jerkass Gods: Loki and Shegorath. Just Following Orders: The excuse the Capekillers gave to Nick Fury. Law of Disproportionate Response: Most of the Imports decide they can handle being kidnapped to an oppressive alternate universe that bugs them, but no way are they working at McDonald's. Legacy Character: TONS, but especially those crazy kids from the Adultpocalypse AU, all of whom took famous Avenger codenames after the adults disappeared. Love Dodecahedron: Every teenager in Manhattan. Seriously. Malicious Slander: Outlandish newspaper articles accuse Toro of being a stripper, the Capekillers tell the network of Dazzler's so-called nude photos, and more. No one is safe. Ontological Mystery: Just blame Reed Richards. Our Dragons Are Different: Also, awesome. Psychic Link: Imports were suddenly and inexplicably able to hear the thoughts of another import for an entire week. Hilarity ensued. Reed Richards Is Useless: The universe's original Reed Richards was the one who created the machines that brought everyone here. Stephen Colbert Super Team: Max Lord's team: Superman, M, Hank Pym, Rogue, Amara, Tammy Shephard, and Black Widow. Team Mom: Rose Lalonde. Also, the school's headmasters. Teleporters and Transporters The Virus: The Human Torch was weaponized. As in a biological weapon. Boils were involved. It was gross. Timey-Wimey Ball: Characters have found themslves in a posh hotel in the 1920s and living out their suburban Grease fantasies in the 1950s. Tracking Device Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny Which Me?: Spider-Man, Tony Stark, Hank Pym, Chase Stein, Aang, Zuko, and more. Hilarity Usually Ensues when one version is introduced to the other. Witch Hunt: Also Untrusting Community. Angry mobs attacked incomers at the very start of the game. Young Future Famous People: Characters can come from any universe, any timeline. As such, there's a teenage Wanda Maximoff, a Bobby Drake that's just joined the X-Men, a Not!Asian Psylocke, and a teeny, tiny Storm.
