New York City, often jokingly said to have a curse on it that attracts superpowered problems to it like a fresh steak attracts starving dogs. And yet it still remains America's most bustling metropolis, soundly trouncing the competition offered by Dallas, Los Angeles, Metropolis, Vine City, and Paragon City. While D.C may claim to be it's capital, and while Los Angeles may lay claim to being the new heart of American Culture, the Big Apple is always and will always remain the most iconic city in America, as well as it's economic center.
In spite of the fact that it has been virtually completely leveled several times by foreign invasion in the past five years, millions still flock to it, confident in the ever strengthening Government, NGO, and Super Hero ability to combat the villains that flock to it. So far their beliefs have been vindicated, a steadily more effective system of battling super powered and regular crime has developed in the city, and lately supervillainy has been at an all time low in the streets of New York.
But lately many of these heroes and even many of the villains have been disappearing or showing up dead, murdered with almost robotic precision and a clinical application of their weaknesses. Dozens have been found dead already and every hero and villain native to New York is worried that they're next on the list of this new and ruthless killer. Some have tried to investigate the cause of these freak murders, but none know just who's in store for them.
Which is perhaps a blessing in disguise, as not many would have the courage to face something that has earned the title Hero Killer through merit alone.
Rules: This is for me, The_Quickster, Major_USA, Frozen_Eternal, and xxCellPhoneGirlxx only. Otherwise the rules are the same for most role plays. But the most important rule of all is of course; have fun, nobody likes a sourpuss.
