The premise: At some point in the near future geneticists come up with an inexpensive way to for parents to be able to engineer children to fit their personal specifications. For a decade it became a world wide fad producing millions of genetically modified children but after the fad faded and many of these children started hitting puberty they began to develop extraordinary abilities leading to fear and prejudice against these children that people took to calling splicers. Some grew angry with the world over their treatment and became hostile forcing the government to start recruiting their own splicers to police them.

You are allowed to come up with your own original characters or teams, there is no connection to any existing comic universe making these characters yours. If you're interested in joining the project let me know here.

Soo, mutants?

#3 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@AweSam: pretty much, but these aren't naturally occurring mutants, so there isn't anyone claiming to be the next step in evolution

#4 Posted by AweSam (7373 posts) - - Show Bio

Next step in evolution. What does Marvel know about evolution. Count me in, if you want.

@AweSam: Cool

This seems pretty cool.

@TheAnnihilator: You get complete creative control over any character you come up with and I'll take anyone who wants to be a part of it

#8 Posted by TheAnnihilator (1056 posts) - - Show Bio

@joshmightbe: The creative control really attracts me, but I've got some other fanfics I'm writing. I'd like to do this though.

@TheAnnihilator: well if you find the time you're welcome to

#10 Edited by TheAnnihilator (1056 posts) - - Show Bio

@joshmightbe: Yeah I'm up for it. Are there any guidelines so far or can we pretty just do whatever we want for now?

#11 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheAnnihilator: well its set a few decades in the future other than that just the standard rules of the site apply. You can make you're character any way you'd like

#12 Posted by TheAnnihilator (1056 posts) - - Show Bio

@joshmightbe: A few decades...that'll be the only tricky part.

#13 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheAnnihilator: maybe 20 to 30 years at most just thought if the trend that caused these people started in say 2013 it'd be enough time for many of these children to reach adulthood

#14 Posted by TheAnnihilator (1056 posts) - - Show Bio

@joshmightbe: It's tricky to figure out how futuristic it would be 20 or 30 years from now.

#15 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheAnnihilator: I'd just suggest moderation, somewhere along the lines of like IRobot somewhat more advanced but not too much

#16 Posted by TheAnnihilator (1056 posts) - - Show Bio

@joshmightbe: I don't know, that's just hard for me.

#17 Posted by AweSam (7373 posts) - - Show Bio

I wonder if 's in.

#18 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheAnnihilator: We could say an economic decline led to a bit of stagnation in the progress of many technologies which would make things about the same other than the genetically engineered people. I did state that the reason this fad caught on was due to an inexpensive process being discovered so it would still work with the premise

I just realized that Marvel mutants aren't even mutants. They have congenital abnormalities.

These would be transhumans though.

The term splicers will be used more as slang than an actual technical term

#22 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@AweSam: @TheAnnihilator: I'll write a prologue for it to kind of set up the world if you think it will help

#27 Posted by batkevin74 (10411 posts) - - Show Bio

@joshmightbe: So it's set roughly in 2025? Or 2013, coz from the premise it starts in 2013 then a 12yr boy so that's be 2025 but as they become adults so 18+2013 so 2031-ish? Let me know

You mind making things a bit clear. What kind of abilities do Splicers tend to have?

#33 Posted by batkevin74 (10411 posts) - - Show Bio

@AweSam: Well Blair Orwell is can run fast (100mph) and can negate gravity & inertia. Her brother Arthur Orwell has super sonic flight, super fast in the air. I created a French guy who can grow extra arms. said there's a 12yr old who is Flash-like and a 14yr German girl with super strength.

#34 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@batkevin74: Actually the 12 year old is all grown up now and a member of the Trans Human Task Force group The Corps will mainly focus on. He is the fastest man on Earth. The German girl was kind of a random example I put in for exposition.@AweSam: Splicers have varied abilities, I've introduced a pyrokenetic, a telepath and a guy with Banshee like powers, with just a hint of Blackbolt influence in my second chapter of the Corps.

@joshmightbe: Cool. I know I was on the fence with the iron age, but i'm on board with this if you will have me. It works out great because I don't have to worry about continuity and what not with the group since its the beginning and everyone's character is completely original.

We'll have any writers who are willing

I have my intro almost finished. I'm writing about a disbanded team of splicers known only as Spider Light. They have all separated and have moved onto better and bigger things on their own since their breakup. Soon they will be brought together one last time before their enivitable downfall.

Spider Light is/was an assassination squad that consisted of elite killers who got payed to use their powers to kill political leaders and people of power/fortune all around the globe.

This is my team line up so far.

The Architect

The Architect leads the team from the shadows. Being the teams founder, he has personally met every single member of the team once and only once, which was during their initial recruitment by him. He is described as wearing a large cowboy hat and a black suit. Not much else is known about The Architect other then he writes the checks and provides the hit lists.

Tin Man

Tin Man is the unofficial field leader of Spider Light. He guides and directs the team in hopes of keeping unnecessary casualty deaths to a minimum. He is suborn and extremely protective of his dysfunctional and sometimes insanely destructive team. His special ability is that his skin tissue turns into a solid unknown metal alkaloid when under any sort of pressure or trauma. He has only turned completely solid once and only once, which was during the team's last failed and final mission.

BIRTH PLACE: Alaska, U.S

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Unknown

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Metal Morphing

SPECIAL SKILL SET: Tracking, Hunting, American Wrestling

WEAPON OF CHOICE: Fists

Cupid

Cupid is the medic and special tactics operation adviser of the team. Her job is to provide her team with the necessary Intel and cover to provide efficient and absolutely perfect results. She is proficient in Marksmanship and Swordsmanship. She also has the ability to detect and filter hundreds of factors and possibilities in seconds, making her one of the most dangerous and predetermining people on earth.

BIRTH PLACE: Tokyo, Japan

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Tokyo, Japan

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Hindsight, Possibility Filtering

SPECIAL SKILL SET: Marksmanship, Swordsmanship

WEAPON OF CHOICE: Bow and Arrow, Obsidian Sword

Rushmore

Rushmore is the key offensive scout of the team. His job is to attack head on in a full glaze of destruction with only his goal and objective in mind killing and destroying anything in his way. Tin Man only uses Rushmore's expertise as a last resort. He is merciless and ruthless and is deemed the most dangerous member of the team. He has killed for fun and is the most destructive in terms of physical brutality.

BIRTH PLACE: Alabama, U.S

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Unknown

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Kinetic Energy absorption and consumption to augment physical abilities to a superhuman level (speed, strength, stamina)

SPECIAL SKILL SET: Street Brawling

WEAPON OF CHOICE: Entire Body (various objects)

Bette Noire

Bette Noire is the team communications expert and analyst. Her job is to keep the team informed with updated statistics and statuses, keeping the team informed in terms of conditions and planning. She is also the teams spotter. She has the ability to communicate and control mechanized technology and machines. She has lost all sense of reality and is probably the most unstable member of the team. Against Tin Man's wishes, her spot is sealed through direct orders from The Architect. Where there is Spider Light, there is Noire.

BIRTH PLACE: Marseille, France

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Unknown

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Technopathy

SPECIAL SKILL SET: Knife Fighting, Hand to Hand Combat

WEAPON OF CHOICE: Butterfly Knife

Imp

Imp is the team's infiltrator. His job is to infiltrate enemy ops with stealth and deception, minimizing the risk of offensive tactics. He is also Tin Man's second as well as his best friend. Imp shares Tin Man's philosophical views and feelings towards being apart of such a dangerous and blood thirsty squad. They balance the bad out with the good.

BIRTH PLACE: Juarez, Mexico

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Unknown

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Shapeshifting

SPECIAL SKILL SET: (none)

WEAPON OF CHOICE: Dual Beretta

Tundra

Tundra was the teams weapons expert and first response attacker. Her job was to directly fight and dismantle the enemy foundation, crippling the moral and basic structure of the enemy. Like Rushmore, she is brutal and mean spirited. She has gone out of her way to topple her kill count to the highest of numbers. In her eyes, no one is safe from her blood lust. She has the ability to warp the water in the air to any cycle of her choosing, ice manipulation being her favorite. Her death will bring about the second beginning as well as the end to Spider Light.

BIRTH PLACE: Xamar, Somalia

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: ***Deceased***

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Ice/Water Manipulation

SPECIAL SKILL SET: Weapons Expert

WEAPON OF CHOICE: Hands

Apex

Apex is the team overseer and last response defender. His job was to assist any and all active teammates as well as falling behind to escort any and all wounded. Apex is/was special in terms of his "splicer abilities". He had the unique ability to transfer his very essence into the living body of another permanently with a single touch, leaving his previous body in a comatose state. He also displays the rarity of having two special abilities. His second, being basic telekinesis. He was the last of the team to be recruited by The Architect and was personally responsible for the teams destruction after his first mission, which resulted in his death.

BIRTH PLACE: Liverpool, England

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: ***Deceased***

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Relocation, Telekinesis

WEAPON OF CHOICE: Mentality
