There was a time when both heroism and villainy wasn't about politics, terrorism, shadow organizations and ulterior motives, it was about heroes beating up criminals, simple as that. The underdogs, a team that is long gone, but easily one of the most memorable of the old Vine, a group of (anti) heroes just doing what 'normal' heroes did, fight crime. The other thing it did well was character interaction between each other, so I decided to take from the old and put it into the new. But this time, why not the villains?
The team will revolve around a group of villains who all live in the same apartment complex, sometimes banding together for personal gain and all things criminal. They don't own islands, they don't have super soldiers, they are just people (powers or not) who decided to become the bad guys. Going for a bit of dark comedy.
If you would even call it that. As said above, the 'base' is but a simple apartment complex in Miami, the villains living here will be the team that also lives their daily routines other than being a villain. The landlord is an old lady by the name of Hilda, who was a villain herself back in the fifties, but now she is but a senile rent hungry old bag. Sure there are normal people living in some of the apartments, but they tend to keep to themselves.
The Members (residents)
Terrance Peirce Higgins: Higgins was formally an M.H.A agent in training who's job was to maintain relations with the organization and hero demographic. His record was commendable, so they decided to give him a promotion. The promotion however would be how he ended up becoming the infamous criminal "POW!" For his new task was to adopt the villain persona and go undercover in the villain lifestyle...He got consumed by it though. Higgins went off the deep end and became a very successful hired villain, but this of course raised the attention of the M.H.A. It was only the matter of a quick chase for Higgins to be detained and put in a SuperMAX prison.
- POW! Is easily noticeable from his padded suit and kinetic gauntlets.
The requirements and rules.
- Anyone is free to join at this point! Just a few things though:
- Once there are enough residents, the roster will be closed up until a resident decides to move.
- I highly suggest you make a brand new character for this team, that way it would give it more of a fresh vibe, use a dusty alt account or just make a new one from scratch! Your call.
- We are looking for "street level" class villains here.
- And by villains I mean crooks and criminals, if you are looking to lead henchmen and take over ze world? I hear the VV is recruiting :)
- Realism is this teams middle name...Not in the sense of super powers and all that, more like personality and behavior. It's cool to be the arrogant angst monger but would he/she be like that at all hours of the day? At their home?
- PM This account or just reply here if you wanna join or have any questions :)
