Considering I am full-fledged into writing it, I may as well mention an storyline that I came up with to introduce some of my characters:
There is a wedding between two transgender individuals from different universes (they both know superheroes, and met each other during a cross-dimensional encounter their friends had). The fundamentalist group of "heroes" known as the Seraphim (who I posted in the villains thread--I've decided they are not from the Heroes Unite/Alliance reality) hear about this and make it public their opposition and intent to stop the wedding by force if necessary. In reaction, the couple purposely sends out their wedding invitations to several transgender superheroes both for them to witness the wedding and as protection should the threat prove to be viable. As well, they decide to have the wedding in the Heroes Unite/Alliance universe because one is from there, and there is a large amount of heroes there who may discourage the villains.
The Seraphim do
intend on following through and hire some muscle to help them enforce their side--some villains from the public domain and one of my own, with most being ones submitted to the message board here. Word of the villains from the Heroes Unite/Alliance villains' recruitment makes its way across the Internet, and HUB briefs Heroes Alliance, who decide to intervene because of the potential for devastation such an event could bring. They do not arrive in time to stop the two sides from attacking each other and become embroiled in the fight when they attempt to stop it.
Meanwhile, The F-Man has robbed a nearby bank and decides to head out in the church. Seeing the occupants and the opportunity to acquire more money and jewels, he proceeds to talk the entire group down and get them to hand him their possessions. Bombshell and Shell, who have been securing the non-combatants in another room at this point, must then come up with a plan to stop him, and later use his lingering control over the villains to try and get them arrested or otherwise end the fighting before it spills out into the streets.
The wedding guests include:
Astral, Sparkle, Split, Eiderdown, and Fractal (my characters)
The Dragon Queen from The Dragon Queen
Gen and Topia from O City
Jenny Everywhere (open source character--not transgender, but friendly to the cause)
Jessica Mason from High Maintenance
Madame Fatal (public domain character from Quality Comics)
The Heroes Alliance team includes:
The Impractical Mr. Imp
The Spatulator (oiginally I was going to throw him to the wayside, but I gave him interactions with Imp that I love)
The villains include:
Sea Embers, Phobia, Zhia, Bind, Lash, The Floccinaucinihilipilification, The Gunman (may be replaced) (my characters)
Captain Nazi, The Jester (Madame Fatal villain), Manx (public domain characters)
Heremod, Cerebelle, Komodo, Oscuro, Saint (sux's characters)
Coldcut, Killerton (SympleSymon's characters)
Jenny Nowhere (open source character)
Kraysch (AzuJOD's character--and I think he would thrive
in this environment)
Shock (Macattack's character)
Target (mind_reader's character)
I know it's a lot, but I mes bite off more than I can chew. As well, I wanted there to be one villain per character after Heroes Alliance intervenes, The F-Man tipping the balance (though he doesn't exactly aid the villains). Some characters probably could be dropped, but I also didn't want the wedding sparsely attended (nor to see a lot of defenseless guests killed) or Heroes Alliance to seem ineffectual by only sending a couple people.
But the problem is that some characters fall a little more to the wayside. Wireless is mainly there for his fight with Shock (which leads to stopping one of the bigger fights) and some of my characters may not get speaking lines at all (which is fine, as those should be the first I sacrifice). Still, I like the battle of Sparkle vs. Kraysch as the other heroes deal with the more manageable threats.
But I should end the post and see what people think. I do not know exactly where this would fit into the rest of the stories, so that might be a good thing for me to consider. Of course, it could be a cf a concept, espially as I have never done a large-cast script before (at least where there was a battle).
