Have there ever been celebrity characters in the CVnU or maybe even a team of celebrity superheros? You know, like ones that not only bust crime but also show up at the Oscars?

@uncommon: I think Duchess used to be a model back in old U, and there was one team that was supposed to be reality tv stars, but their leader stopped showing up before they even got off the ground.

I was going to have Matter be a film star in the nU, no lies.

Mercury and Duchess were both famous models in Vine Prime.

But there are no celebs in CVnU right? Hmmm...

I'm taking a quick journey into Hell to get Quintus back. Anyone who would like to join me is more then welcome to. It'll be short interaction posts if interested. The beginning is here. :)

I'll be there! Maybe. Only if certain conditions are met.

It might be almost time to do The Thing. >_>

Which I have to stop calling that, since now I want a Thing profile....what a good movie.

@gambler: Are you talking about original as in the '50s version or John Carpenters?

Because I'd be going with Carpenter's, using the original short story as a reference.

Also, we do not speak of the recent remake. >_>

@gambler: Bow before the true horror movie buff! >:3

But yeah, there was a version WAAAY back in the 50s (1951 to be precise) called 'The Thing From Another World'.

I DON'T think Carpenter's was a remake of this, he probably went right to the source material, John W. Campbell's story 'Who Goes There?'

@gambler: Occasionally...usually I'm happy to go with the flow just because I either get bored, other people post too slowly, or my master plan is too complicated to really work out in this kind of setting.

I might actually know what I'm doing this time though. >_>

@gambler: @icarusflies:

the first movie was weird, the monster resembled lurch from the addams family and kinda went off. It was supposed to be a homage to 'mountains of madness' but with the aliens replacing the shoggoth.

If you have a need for me I'll jump in, but not sure at this point how I would fit and make sense.

@nerx: Unless you have a source, I really doubt it would be based on atMoM.

@nerx: I liked not the Carpenter version cause you never really see the creature. Your mind can create scarier concepts when clouded by the unseen. I think anyway.

@rain_eclipse_ves: Just off the top of my head, you could do it for Ellie. Or since your character is all about anonymity maybe he joined in secret just as some random dude. Not to help, but to sabotage cause returning Quintus to the land of the living would be counter productive for the goals you have set for the team. Something along those lines. Up to you though man. If you get bored throw something down, if not I'll catch up with you and yours in the future :P

@icarusflies: Just baseless speculation, the first movie had a plant man the carpenter movie had a viral assimilator but the latest one sucked >.>

#6671 Posted by Icarusflies (12504 posts) - - Show Bio

@nerx: Then not Mountains of Madness. I believe at the time Lovecraft was still almost totally unknown (the rights to his works were hoarded by one of his 'friends' and not public domain).

Heroes and Villains

Its been a while since the Vine had a classic hero vs villain storyline. Right now we're heavy on good neutrals but low on evil neutrals.

We've got a couple of teams, the Enforcers and the Renegades, but what they don't have is an ENEMY. Someone to bring them together, someone to give them goals and a foe to struggle against.

So we have the heroes but not the villains. That's only half the equation.

Any ideas?

@amaranth_strix: I think I might have one but I'm not entirely sure yet. Its early going....

@shadowswordmaster: If they wanted to then yeah, thats a good idea. Otherwise people would make alts and that doesnt always work out so well.

@quintus_knightfall: *Nods* I gotcha. A good villain team would be epic right now ;-)

Premo and Clara seem to be up to something. Have to keep an eye out for that development.

@quintus_knightfall: Ohhhhh no. I just read your bio updates and it wouldn't be badass if we both weren't using our powers, especially considering we both powered up significantly since then.
