WhoWouldWinVerse is a subreddit derived from the Who Would Win subreddit, dedicated to original characters much like a comic setting. It was designed to establish a coherent universe for a fun, dynamic world, and aimed to attract roleplayers, writers, and everyone in between under one underlying goal: to have fun.
Occasional activity still occurs as of 2019.
WhoWouldWinVerse provides examples of:
- Alternate Universe: The setting is a world where a so-called 'White Event' in 2001 gave millions of people superpowers (but there were several superpowered entities existing beforehand).
- Complete Immortality: Wilhelm O'Brian a.k.a Markus Grimm cannot age or even so much as grow ill with his advanced healing factor.
- Conveniently an Orphan: Wilhelm O'Brian was taken in by the Organisation that turned him into a metahuman after his parents died in a car crash that also left him severely injured.
- Easy Amnesia: Markus Grimm lost all his memories when his rebellion against the Organisation concluded with him killing them all, and the last one to die was a memory wiper metahuman, whose last desperate attack even made him forget his birth name, Wilhelm O'Brian. On the flip side, he also forgot about the deaths he's caused, though the memories eventually started to come back.
- Fearless Fool: Being practically immortal, Markus can recover from almost any threat presented, thus negating his sense of self-preservation.
- Healing Factor: The core of Markus' power, his immensely potent healing. He can heal any wound that does not immediately destroy his brain in a matter of seconds, which includes normally-fatal injuries such as limb loss, being sliced in half, being crushed, etc.
- Heroic Wannabe: Markus Grimm has always wanted to be a hero, however his powers at first were suited to little more than keeping himself alive and well. Compared to some of the other metas in the WWWVerse, he was lackluster when it came to saving others.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: Type B for Markus Grimm. With his powers giving him an incredibly skewed sense of morality, he's difficult to relate to more often than not, leading him to be outcast from social groups and inspiring his need for someone to like him.
- Immortal Life Is Cheap: With his powers, Markus has grown reckless with his bodies, sometimes doing potentially fatal things merely for fun.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Markus' healing factor is essentially this, allowing him to recover from almost every wound - and even if his body is destroyed, he still has backups.
- Required Secondary Powers: Markus cannot feel pain or discomfort, probably due to the fact that if he could, he would have gone insane a long, long time ago from his Healing Factor. Additionally, he must have inhuman organisational skills to manage hiveminds of up to 200 clones at any given time.
- Resurrective Immortality: While Markus 'can' be killed despite his healing factor, he can regenerate from anything (save for total atomization) within ten seconds.
- Victory by Endurance: Markus' powers are such that he could theoretically win 'any' fight by pure endurance, but his low attention span tends to end the fight with him walking off after a few minutes, unless the fight particularly interests him.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Markus has been known to resent his immortality, and even his inability to feel pain, as self-harming has no effect even when he's feeling the need to hurt.
