What do you mean? I've been around as many accounts for the last 3 or so years, but I have like ADHD when I come to characters and always move onto the next. I've been gone for hmmmmm....going on like three or four months now.
exactly, you've been gone since the end of summer. Thats a while in my book.
True, true. I'm not really good with balancing the Vine with school.
@Perception: @_@ I went to bed a little after that and meant to lol.
touche. :) Well, James is still young. He could develop resentment for his "father," which would make him do things that would be uncharacteristic of a hero--making him an anti-hero. Like the Punisher... Or even go Evil(Like in the Spiderman movies where Harry goes crazy-psycho). Basically this way he would want payback for his mistreatment. I do agree that James would have more a reason to be a hero. But eventually personal feelings would start to mix in with his heroic duties. IT would change much of his fibre of being.
I think that would be the most interesting route. He'd be fighting against circumstances to be a better person. That's a road I once went down with Cass ;) It's not an easy one, but it sure is fun as hell to write.
Or he could go evil and try and outdo his father, but that would be a bit more predictable, IMO.
Questionable heroes are always interesting to read :)
THIS IS BETTER :D
:) And interesting is good :D
-i'm off for the night though----so IN ADVANCE :P i won't respond again for a while.
@Perception: I know bits and pieces...the only question is who you would side with
Well, depending on if Gambler will be d!ck to his illegitimate son :) ....it's up in the air.
How as a hero, would you justify siding with TB In?
Well... Maybe I won't be a hero. Maybe a more Neutral-istic character, after all it would be difficult to be a hero when your "Father" is the most reviled villain in this universe. There are so many opportunities... It is crazy.
Most reviled goes to Darkchild, most cunning would go to Gambler.
And wouldn't that give you even more reason to be a hero? Learn from the (perceived) wrongs of your father? See exactly how you don't want to live your life or do things?

James ran, not because of fear, but because his survival depended on it. The Telepath found himself running in the dark. The gloomy, decrepit street lights dimly lighting the street. The dark street was his solace thoguh, his body perspiring in the darkness and the adrenaline pumping through his veins. He could think ten times faster, move ten times quicker, all because his reaction time had increased due to this particular situation. James peered over his shoulder to see Laura, her body tensing, her arm pulled back, as she threw the paper lance. The unexplainable sound of something coming quickly through the air pierced James mentally even before it came physically. The fear overwhelmed him, and without thinking, he jumped to the side. His body collided into a wall, the pain spreading over his shoulder. It stung, but James realized he was lucky. The lance stood erect less than four feet away, having penetrated the concrete sidewalk. James sighed in relief, and slowly got up, his body trying to shake off the pain in his shoulder.
The Telepath looked at his pursuer only to see her in a large, paper sphere. It was rotating so quickly though, and James was at first surprised. The ball was coming straight for him, and he grinned. This assassin was sly, and very creative. James immediately produced an illusion. The illusion would cause Laura to think that her "Juggernaut" ball was on a fire, and she would feel the searing pain of heat, and smell the burning paper and flesh. It was a tricky illusion, but James knew it would be semi-successive. His opponent was becoming more adept at every illusion he put forth. James hoped this would distract her for one last ultimate play. Assuming his illusion was taking effect, James hopped away from his pursuer and walked onto the street. No more running. This was it.
A million thoughts ran through James' head as he stood there, awaiting for his opponent's attention to be redirected at him. He wondered if he would live? If he was capable of killing someone with his mind, or even possessing them? He had these abilities, he was just unwilling to use them. It was not in his moral code to do it without permission. However, now it was becoming a matter of when he would have to use these powers, not if he had to. He was getting desperate. This was the first time he had ever been so desperate. This papyrkinetic could be his maker. James stood, festered, unsure what he would do next. However, he assured himself he would do everything in his power to survive.
