A man is seated at a conference table in an office building, and the large windows nearby give a beautiful view of the city skyline.
???: I wonder if anyone found those flyers for a hero team I wish to assemble...

Suddenly, there is a wet slapping sound against the floor outside. A large, orange flipper steps into the room, and then the rest of the figure follows.
A short, plump man in a suit and bowler hat walks in, twirling a cane. But his hands and feet are orange flippers, and he appears to be wearing a puffin mask.
"Pardon me, sir, is this the superhero team?"
No, wait, his beak moved. That's his actual head.

The man looks at the new arrival.
???: Why yes it is! And you are...?
At that moment a bird hits one of the windows before awkwardly flying away.
???: Guess I had the windows be too clean...

“Can you let me in? My name is Baconstein, and my superpower is cooking Power-Up Food!”
"Professor Andrew Porgsley, at your service. I also go by Puffin."
???: Well welcome to the team, Professor Puffin and Baconstein.
The lights suddenly flicker for a few moments before going off, sending the room into darkness save for the light coming from the windows.
???: Ugh, that earthquake we've had recently did a number on the building's electrical system. Eh, I'll fix the lights after the meeting, there's enough light coming from the windows.
An military person-like figure enters the room. He is equipped with hi-tech gadgetry around a utility belt, which only contained a ray gun and a grappling hook. He also sported a jetpack that he hand-constructed himself.
"Hello there? Is this the building where all the supers were supposed to meet up? My name is the 'Future Soldier', and I specialise in constructing top-of-the-line military that would be used in the future of combat."
A young woman in a feline-themed Magical Girl costume is carefully positioned out of the way of the other occupants of the room. She is fidgeting nervously.
Question: there is a roleplaying forum on this site; is there some reason I don't know about for this thread to be here instead of there? Also since I'm in spoilertext already this is me declaring my intent to also play a villain. ... Also also, does the Discord already exist, or are you not even going to make it until the thread gets "popular enough", however you happen to define that? ... Hi I'm wingedcatgirl and I ask a lot of questions.

"Hello, new guys? Want some bacon?"
No, the Discord isn't made yet, which will most likely be when the introductions are over. And I know that there is a RP forum, but I've seen other R Ps be posted on here before. My first attempt at an RP was in those forums, but it didn't turn out too well and thus it's an old shame of mine, so I'm not even gonna mention its name.
The man turns to the military figure.
???: You're at the right place Future Soldier, and welcome to the team!
He turns his attention to the cat girl.
???: And you are...?

The girl squeaks slightly, startled, before realizing that this is unbecoming of a new Super. She takes a breath. "I'm here to join the superhero team," she says. "I was, ah, 'selected by an Enigmatic Empowering Entity', so now I have the responsibility to use my powers for the good of humanity."
A young man covering himself in a black overcoat comes in. He notes the gallery of heroes ahead of him.
"I'm gonna guess I came to the right place. Hi! I'm Nick! How are you all?"
"Do you new people want bacon?"
"I'd love some bacon!" Nick exclaims.
"I, uh, I suppose I could eat some bacon..." This person is oddly fixated on bacon... Well, their name is "Baconstein", isn't it?
The man nods at Nick and the cat girl.
???: Glad the two of you can join us!
Then he turns to Baconstein.
???: Sure, I'd like to try your bacon.
The girl fidgeted with the hem of her skirt. "Do you suppose everyone is here, or should we keep waiting?"
???: I don't know if everyone is here or not, but might as well start getting down to business. Every hero team needs a name to call themselves, so what should ours be?
“Enjoy! Just beware of the nitroglycerin.”
She stares at the nitroglycerin-infused bacon.
... ... ... ... Why this.
"But, um, if we're talking about names," she says, deciding to ignore the explosive pork product, "our team consists of... a bacon-fixated chef, a trenchcoat boy, a mutant bird, a futuristic gadgeteer, and... me. What kind of name would be fitting for that...?" She thinks about this for a moment. "Mötley Crüe," she jokes.
The man gets up and walks around, pondering in thought. He's wearing an brown longcoat and a matching hat, and his face is black with no visible features save for his white eyes.
???: Nah, I don't think that name would work. Hmmm...
He coughs to clear his throat.
???: Sorry, I'm feeling a bit under the weather today. Oh, I forgot to introduce myself. You may call me Detective Gamechanger. Though I'm a detective I like doing some adventuring on the side for the thrill of it.
"Nice to meet you, Detective." Somehow, it did not occur to her that she should introduce herself as well.
Trying to get this thread going again. I know via a discord server I'm part of that three heroes are coming, the respective tropers just haven't posted yet.
The detective looks at his watch.
Detective GC: Well it's about lunchtime, so what do you guys want to eat as we continue the meeting?
A thought occurs to the detective as he turns to the girl again.
Oh, and I didn't catch your name.
The Future Soldier looks at the others with ideas in mind.
"I know a few good places to eat, if you don't mind."
