Go To

New Millennium is a roleplay on Gaia Online. The Out of Character thread can be found here.

Imagine what would happen if you threw together Code Lyoko, Teen Titans, and Xiaolin Showdown. And then you put a steampunk spin on it. That is exactly what New Millennium is. Superhumans have all begun to lose their powers, much to the chagrin of the government who employed some of them (fifteen - some years ago it used to be all of them, but then revolutions happened and now it's just some of them; the rest have all been in hiding). And just because you always need to make things go from bad to worse, there's a virus loose that infects inanimate objects and gives them strange powers. Defunct superheroes, meet indestructible virus that government scientists are trying to make a kill code for anyways.
