Holy crap! After a four-month(?) hiatus, I'm back!
A brief explanation to those of you who have never heard of the movie/comic book series:
Dave Lizewski is a bored comic book nerd that grows increasingly obsessed with super-heroes and distressed with crime. On a whim, he orders himself a wetsuit on eBay and goes out to fight crime: of course, this is a kid with no crime fighting experience, let alone athletic ability, so not only does he get stabbed, he gets run over by a car after attempting to flee when wounded. Once rehabilitated, he finds that due to the many operations done on him, his bones (mostly his skull) are re-enforced by metal plates and that his pain threshold has increased due to, as he puts it, 'f**ked up nerve endings.' So, as soon as he's on his feet again, he dons the wetsuit, calls himself Kick-@ss and becomes an overnight celebrity on YouTube when a civilian records him
barely rescuing a man from three gang-members.
He also unwittingly creates a fad, and more costumed heroes start showing up.
For more information, I'm sure there's a Wiki on it. Now, onto the role-play!
Basically, it takes part in the same universe as Kick-@ss, which would be the real world, only the titular hero might be mentioned from time to time (though as far as both the movie and the comic are concerned, he is 'retired').
If anyone knows the comic/movie and feels secure enough to use a character from the series, you're more than welcome to (even if they have to come out of 'retirement', relax, it's all in good fun).
If you don't know about the comic or movie at all, but find the concept of shoving a semi-useless fanboy/fangirl in a superhero outfit interesting, don't panic; you don't really need to know anything about the series for the role-play.
No limit on how many characters one can use, and you can make them come and go as you please if that's what you'd like most. Heroes and villains alike are accepted.
Also, since this role-play takes place in the real world, please make any special abilities or physical attributes that your character has plausible.
Role-play rules are simple; no god-modding, no double/triple/quadruple-posting, let everybody have their turn, be civil, no Mary Sues, bla bla bla, you should all know the general rules of the board by now. If you haven't, it's the topic at the very top of the page.
The general role-play rating will be R for swearing (if your character has a potty mouth, that is), and maybe some extreme/over-the-top violence (which is a sort of trademark of Kick-@ss's). Romance can be involved if desired as long as it isn't 'and then he put his thingy in her thingy' type of stuff.Participating Users and Their Characters
- Yuri/Scarface, Marcus/AmpersandPlot
~ All across the U.S.A, because of one crazy kid, people everywhere have been donning capes and running around dressed as superheroes. But, since no hero is without villain, there have been supervillain sightings as well; particularly in the small, scenic town of Chalk (yeah, fictional town; if you don't like it, it can be like, Springfield or something) located somewhere in the Midwest. Gang violence has also steadily increased in the past few months, to the point where some people are not safe in their own homes. It is a superhero's job to fix this.
