The sequel game to Roleplay/CapeAndCowl, which can be found [[http://maskormenace.''[[http://maskormenace.dreamwidth.org/ here]].Mask Or Menace]]'' is a multi-fandom superhero roleplay and the sequel game to ''Roleplay/CapeAndCowl''. It takes place in an AlternateHistory where the UsefulNotes/ColdWar never ended, and at some point in the past, the first wave of imPorts arrived and changed the world.



!!This game has examples of:
* TheCape: Many superheroes in the city go this route. On the other hand, several others go in the opposite direction.
* CelebrityParadox: Much like its predecessor, this is dealt with by having all media related to a series disappear once a character is ported in. However, this doesn't stop other, more pop-culture savvy characters like [[BrooklynNineNine Rosa Diaz]] from recognizing them.
* CityOfAdventure: The four Porter cities.
* CrossoverPairing: Some, as is typical for a panfandom game. Examples include [[Series/OrphanBlack Cosima]]/[[Series/DoctorWho Clara]], who got married recently.
* DeadpanSnarker: Enough to populate a small city. Or several, as it were.
