Roleplay / League of Intergalactic Cosmic Champions

Go To
The League of Intergalactic Cosmic Champions, or LICC for short, was a round-robin, chaotic, zany superhero sci-fi spoof that ran for several years on the discussion boards of Nitcentral.


LICC has examples of the following:

  • Color Character: Crimson Crossbow, Robot Redshirt, Silver Maiden, The Man In Black
  • Mind Screw: It's both a story of superheroes in the future & a TV show about superheroes in the future.
  • Mirror Universe: The KILL universe, also JARD was the mirror of Jarso (another related cybersoap), as well as the Bizarro universe.
  • Advertisement:
  • Missing Episode: The earliest version was erased without warning & it's unknown how many posts were lost. Copies of most of the early version were later put up on a GeoCities site, but since that shut down, those versions are once again missing from the web.
  • Red Shirt: killed by the thousands. ;-) Subverted with Scott Free, Jason Kiehart, and Robot Redshirt.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Counterparts Hamburger Pattie & Soyburger Patricia had the real names of Suzy Wood & Yzus Doow.
  • Shout-Out: The Frank Conspiracy is a double Shout-Out to the Dave Conspiracy from Narbonic mixed with a forum running gag about every minor character in Red Dwarf being called Frank.
  • Something Person: The Amazing Quantum Man, Tacoman, Comet Lad, The Answer Man, Ubermensch, Jadlad Superguy among others.
  • Super Power Lottery: The Queue (omnipotent power when they stand in a straight line), Soyburger Patricia (sorceress nicknamed Dues Ex Patricia after one such incident), q (a junior member of Star Trek's Q continuum), although Adon & the Observer tended toward the overpowered side as well.
  • Unobtainium: Plotonium as a generic whatever-the-plot-required supermetal. A building block of the universe that allowed people to have superpowers was Nevesytrof (much more stable then the Sub-Reality or Super-Reality of other universes.)
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: Where the first Spidermobile ended up & later revealed to be the home of the X-Cw X
