A-Ko enrolls at the Xavier institute. Maybe one of the ninja turtles too. Mighty Max as well. Basically just the new class of powerful teens getting into crazy shit with existing characters.


I could do that, but it would fit more in line with my Future Foundation idea. More in line with that than the X-Men who I mainly want to use mutants in (except for Warlock)

Basically, out west the FF is gathering up powerful teens and such to help them control their abilities and learn how to use them. You get the likes of the kids from Zoom, Sky High (now that that place has been blown up....by Gog), and a few others like say Hit Girl. Could swap out one of the Ninja Turtles for Mondo Gecko though. I figure the Turtles are pretty well fine where they're at with Splinter teaching them. but A-Ko and Mighty Max being students sounds pretty good. Granted, that will lead to C-Ko and B-Ko showing up there as well. B-Ko will probably annoy the hell out of Dr. Will Magnus.

And of course, you just know Zoom (Tim Allen) is going to have a dust up with the Reverse Flash at some point. 

And Virgil as a time displaced Beak sounds pretty fun.

already had a few ideas for Norman aka the North Man. He's an early immortal....maybe the oldest one ever. Hell for all we know he's won the Prize (which could itself be cyclical rather than just one thing). I do know that a very long long time ago, a youngster in Cimmeria took a liking to him as he guided him towards a mountain. The North Man wanted to commune with the god Crom and ended up climbing said mountain and aiding a hammer wielding godling against some Frost Giants. And yes, he picked up said hammer.

While the North Man would come down again some months later, the lad that led him to the mountain eventually left, aiding an old man who seemed to be lost in the wintry woods there, back towards civilization. Though when they neared his village the old man disappeared, leaving the boy to wonder if that may have been Crom himself....who has often been spoken of as taken the guise of a traveler at time.



This reminds me.....I'll have to write up Dingleburg, Florida at some point. Nice little creation of mine there. Just basically a nice place to live for townsfolk of....well....different sorts

Supreme has had a long, long career.

As an infant, the lad was adopted by the Crane family and named Ethan (it's entirely possible he was a stolen child and sold off to an orphanage. Same thing happened to Ric Flair) and was a fairly normal, if somewhat developmentally challenged, little boy.

At least until THAT day.

When Ethan was roughly four years old, he chased his beloved dog Radar into the nearby woods and found what appeared to be a meteor in a crater. Approaching the object Ethan began to feel sick and passed out, and may have died, if not for Radar dragging the child to safety.

When found by the Cranes both Ethan and Radar seemed to be near death, but slowly they regained their health. The most puzzling thing about this encounter was that the hair on both Ethan and Radar had turned a pale white. A local doctor whom the Cranes trusted later found the meteor and took it back to his lab to be hidden safely away for study and analysis. He believed the meteor to be a new element which he referred to as Supremium.

It would be noted that both Ethan and Radar both had some interesting changes in them physiology other than just their hair. Both seemed to gain enormous physical abilities, increased intelligence, and esoteric as it sounds....increased morality as time progressed. As he grew older Ethan would become known as Kid Supreme and save his home town of Liddlehaven and the world many times over.

And as he became a man he would be Supreme.

Using his vast intelligence and powers, Supreme would build his amazing Citadel Supreme somewhere over the Eastern Seaboard and in the 1940s and 50s do several amazing things, be it battling the evil Darius Dax, romancing Judy Jordan, or joining a team of heroes known as the Allies, which would occasionally team with the Justice Society and the Invaders (sometimes the three would be known as the 'All-Winners Squad' by the press). He however did not take part in World War II. Most metahumans did not, thanks in part to a mysterious being known as Parsifal, who had the power to remove the abilities of most metas with only certain individuals being immune to this ability (such as Captain America having no true powers, Namor being a natural Atlantean, or the Human Torch being an android). And there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that Supreme personally dropped Fatman and Little Boy on Japan.

By the 50s, Supreme and Radar would have a series of new adventures and allies such as when a mysterious encounter (and possible grandfather paradox) with the element Supremium endowed Ethan's new adopted sister Sally with powers similar to his. Sally would become known as Suprema and would follow in her brother's footsteps. Sadly Henry Moore, a reporter exposed to Supremium and took the name Wonder Man, would rather use his abilities to get laid. (It should be noted that it is believed that modern day crimefighter G-Girl may have gained her abilities from Supremium exposure as well).

By the 60s though, the times they were a changing.

That was when Gog came.

Gog attacked Astro City, a haven for metas, and decimated it. Many of the great heroes of the era came to do battle with Gog, Supreme among them. And many of the world's heroes died or were otherwise incapacitated (Wonder Man was one of the former, Mighty Man one of the latter). Even with the interference of a group of heroes from the future called the Justice League, who had pursued Gog from their time, it seemed Gog was unstoppable (By most accounts, history books show this as the first known appearance of Gog but as the insanely powerful being was traveling back through time, it was his last before being defeated).

Gog was only stopped when a trio of men who vaguely resembled the futuristic hero Superman appeared and soundly defeated him, promising to put him in a prison at the end of time with more of his kind.

Still the damage was done, and Supreme facing shell shock and depression decided to travel to the stars to find himself.


He stayed gone for nearly 50 years.

And like that, one day Supreme was back. Oddly enough one of the first modern metahumans he met was Superman, whom Supreme remembered from the 60s but whom from Superman's frame of reference had yet to meet Supreme. Supreme would oftentimes offer Superman advice, believing the younger hero would come to define this era just as he had his own.

Supreme would have several adventures such as saving Suprema and Radar from a sentient galaxy and battling the still living Darius Dax, who had taken to calling himself the Ultra-Humanite and after being altered by Supremium resembled a giant white ape, or manipulated into battling Thor due to Loki's mischief .

But all that came to end.

The Shi'ar came to earth one day, demanding Supreme surrender himself to their justice immediately. According to them Supreme had done battle with their champion Gladiator and interfered in the development and rule of several Shi'ar colonies. Supreme didn't dispute the fact, as something had happened to him while he was in space, something he could neither quite remember or explain, but that he intended to find out.

Surrendering peacefully and submitting to Shi'ar justice, Supreme was taken away.

What will become of him is unknown, but even in that final moment the greatest hero of the golden age reassured the world by looking back over his shoulder and winking.

Black Lightning: a double major in college, Jefferson Pierce wanted to be a high school English teacher. But then Oscorp came calling and made him an offer to work in their applied science division that he just couldn't refuse. Of course, several years later he had a bit of an accident that transformed him into an entity that could absorb and expel electricity. In his confusion, Pierce went on an unintended rampage through Times Square....that was until Spider-Man swung into action and managed to diffuse the situation before it got out of control both on the part of Pierce and the NYPD. Owing gratitude to the Web-Slinger, Pierce submitted to studies performed by ARGUS (over Oscorp's protestations) and found that he carried a latent mutant (or perhaps the preferred nomenclature is 'Meta') gene. Realizing the danger his powers could cause, and that he may have passed these genes on to his young daughters, Pierce volunteered for training by ARGUS and has devoted himself towards understanding mutation and has become an outspoken mutants rights activist in addition to a fully deputized agent of the law.



Deadman: Boston Brand was a simple circus daredevil known for escaping any death trap thrown his way. Then he died. Or was he murdered? He's determined to find out, this being his bit of unfinished business. As a result, Brand has used his newfound status as a ghost to help others pass on to the next life and become an agent of order in the misty world between here and there (sometimes called the Veil or the Further). He's also recently taken on an apprentice of sorts in a dead teenager named Mort.

He doesn't know where he is from.

Somewhere.

Nowhere.

It doesn't matter.


He was born...if you could call it that....speaking and thinking. But all this was simply the clutter and backwash of thoughts and images from those who had made him. They're dead now, but don't mourn them. They were wicked men.

He remembers looking up at the stars and reaching for them.

He found he could touch them.

He found there were few things that were impossible to him as he wafted through the ether.

Then his father came to him, a benevolent sort who taught him. Taught him to understand. Taught him to fight. Taught him to to teach. Taught him. Him. HIM.

And father did name him. Yes, father told him he was the first of his kind, so it was fitting he should be named Adam. And father gifted Adam with something....a trinket he had found in his travels. It was a gem that father told Adam would let him know the full depths of his soul.

And Adam departed from his father to travel the stars. Among his father's creations, another joined Adam on his journeys across the heavens; the canid known as Lupus.

They traveled to world after world, having adventure after adventure.

They came to far distant worlds beyond imagining. On one Adam and Lupus had found people suffering. They had nothing to eat, no clean water to drink. They were sick and infirm. And the Knights repressed them.

And seeing the pain in their souls, Adam used his considerable power and knowledge to aid them. His abilities healed them. His knowledge purified the waters. His wisdom reached them, even some of the Knights came to revere him, and when that happened the Knights gave of their own supplies of food to the masses.

Some called him a hero, a holy man, others called him an apostate, a warlock.

Word traveled from world to world about HIM...about Adam Warlock. Perhaps he was the Universal Messiah that had been promised. That he was the one to unite the worlds..every world. That he was the one to restore the covenant between the people and the Church. That he would bring Truth.

Some came to him, joining he and Lupus. There was Triax, who threw down his weapons of war to learn of peace. There was Moondragon who saw in the Warlock a mate, but found later a mentor and friend. There was Gamora of whom little was known. And there was Pip who.....well Pip honestly never changed much even in Adam's presence. But they and others like them became regarded as apostles to Warlock.

And so the gospel of Adam Warlock rang out across the universe, to even the inner circles of the Universal Church of Truth, to the ears of the Matriarch. She who felt a great pain in having to tell her master of this holy man in the wilderness of space. He was Highest of the High, the Living God, the Master of All He Surveyed....and He so hated bad news.

To the Matriarch's eternal surprise however, the Magus merely smiled.

Weird World: A Timeline of Horror part 1



The Beginning- In the beginning there was The One. In contemplating It's Oneness, the One became aware of It's Self. In discovering 'Self', the One decided that It could no longer be merely One, as self denoted that there should be more than merely One.

So the One became Two: the side which was all things, good, right, and light became the entity known as the Presence, which ascended upwards to begin creating a dwelling place referred to as 'Heaven'. The side which was all things dark and evil, known alternately as the Great Evil Beast or the Darkness, descended downwards creating its own place of dwelling: Hell.

Being such as Destiny,Death, and other Endless concepts likewise came into being shortly thereafter.

The Presence began to experiment with creating life....though these first creations....known as Leviathan or Old Ones were not exactly what the Presence had intended (that said, Death found them amusing) and set out to make new beings.

The Darkness too began to create, but found that its creations, the elder demons, were likewise not to its liking. So too did jealousy rear its head when the Darkness saw the Presence was creating more refined entities: angels, and that the Presence had intended to create something new....a cosmos of matter.

War began between the Presence and the Darkness, each being omnipotent found their will thwarted. Each indestructible found themselves injured.

But the Presence found a way to win.

While the Darkness was sturm and wrath embodied, it lacked the innovative thinking of the Presence, who fashioned a Mark that would imprison the Darkness for all eternity....provided that one of the Presence's archangels wore said Mark.

The most devoted of the archangels volunteered to wear the Mark. His name was Lucifer.

With the Darkness imprisoned in conceptual oblivion, the Presence set about to create the cosmos.

The elder demons however, angry at the defeat of their god, had fashioned as weapon to attempt to destroy the Presence and His new cosmos. Seven keys which would harness the very power of the newborn universe against the Presence and return reality to the void.

It failed and the Presence scattered the keys throughout His new reality...though the demons believe that if they find all seven of the keys again they can return the universe to darkness, a tale not only passed down amongst their own ranks, but which has likewise been adopted by other races such as the Drow (or Dark Elves).

The universe was born and the Darkness and its demons banished and all was well...for a time



Four to Five Billion B.C.E.: The Presence fashions the planet Earth in the Sol System, upon a multiversal Nexus point, making the young, cooling world universally important. And so the angels set foot upon the newborn rock....but found they were not alone.

The demons had likewise arrived, laying claim to the Earth as their own. They were followed by the Old Ones who did likewise. The star-spanning Celestials also arrived, placing their monoliths upon the barren rock. Finally, the earth itself reared up strange beings formed in the act of the Earth's creation....such as the elder gods Demiurge, Set, Cthon, Zharm, and Gaea. All claimed ownership of the new world and battle for it began amongst most of the sides. The Celestials merely ignored the others and departed, though they greatly implied that they would return at some juncture.

The war was bloody....violent....demon against angel...angel against god.....god against demon....demon against Old One. The Old Ones learned quickly that their status as elder beings allowed them to cut angels off from their power source, their Grace. One angel was as a result badly beaten, torn, and rent, beginning an obsession with pain and uttering to itself over and over the name of its tormentors....one it would take on in madness: Leviathan.

War makes strange bedfellows as angels stood alongside demons and earthly gods against the Old Ones for millenia. Together they managed to route the creatures into a nearby parallel dimension (which would in time become known as Purgatory), putting the creatures to sleep....though when the stars are right the Old Ones could always make their return.

The cost was great, and the three remaining armies came to an uneasy truce for the time being...though each coveted the new world and its importance in the Presence's great cosmic play.

As for the Presence....He came to shape the world....His influence creating the great cosmic breath that would seed life into it.....the world changing....life forms developing.....changing....evolving.....from Precambrian things such as what would one day be known as 'Graboids' to millions of years later, fish, amphibians, strange creatures from the Devonian era that were equally fish and man, great dinosaurs, even greater kaiju, and eventually...mammals.

It was these that the Presence seemed to favor the most. There was talk of how these things would one day become the favored creations of the Presence (as soon as they finished 'cooking' a bit). And the angels sang out a heavenly chorus...save one.

Part 2- Fallen.





Lucifer Morningstar, the highest, most devoted, most loyal of the Presence's archangels had doubts. The knowledge that these things would become the Presence's favored beings stung him a bit, stung his pride. Lucifer voiced concerns to his father, but the Presence maintained that this was His will. And that might have been it, if not for the Mark that held the Darkness in check.

The foul power of the Darkness, even locked away by the Mark on Lucifer, had an effect on the archangel. Anger, resentment, pride, and all manner of urges began to course through the favored archangel. At first, Lucifer continued to try and reason with his father. When that failed he openly defied Him, claiming that he loved the Presence too much to ever knowingly bow to any new creation.   

And he talked....he talked to many of his brothers and sisters in Heaven's ranks. This turned a great many of the angels against Lucifer, but at least a third of them found that his words made a great deal of sense, among them the newly dubbed Leviathan, Satan, Etrigan, and countless others. At the Lightbringer's words, the angels decided that if the Presence would not listen to their demands, then He would be unseated.

At least it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Lucifer and his ilk were cast out of Heaven, Lucifer himself defeated by his loyal brother Michael, and thrown down, down past the Earth, down past matter, into the pits of Hell itself. The demons already in residence there immediately fell upon the fallen angels, much to their own chagrin. The angels, enraged by their defeat, began to overwhelm the demonic hordes and there was a war in Hell itself. In time, the angels and the demons bartered a truce via a particularly clever demon called Mephisto. Lucifer would reign as the supreme lord of master of Hell, while the demons would form a Triumvirate to better regulate the day to day running of the pit (which was by now beginning to fill up with the souls of the wicked across the cosmos). The Morningstar however had his eyes still firmly set upon the Earth.

Now how long ago this was, no one can really tell. How much is tale and how much is truth is muddied by the sands of time. Man was indeed born of the earth and the divine breath of the Presence, but also evolved over centuries. Even the angels who refused to partake in the rebellion, but did not aid the Presence and were cast down to Earth have dim recollections of these days.

Suffice to say there was a man, a man named Adam. Perhaps the perfect man, molded in the image of the Presence. Adam had a wife, her name was Lilith...though in Lilith there was an anger, a pride that drew Lucifer to her. With the Morningstar whispering in her ear, Lilith rebelled against both her husband and against the Presence. While some may have come to lionize her for rebellion, let there be no doubts that Lilith was hardly standing for her sex. No in Lilith there was a cruelty and dark flame that Lucifer delighted in fanning. In time, Lilith would become a consort of Hell and become a demon herself (as souls which go to Hell eventually transform into).

Lucifer had struck a blow against his father and against Adam. Seeing this, the Presence placed Adam in a special garden and had the angel Gadreel stand watch over it. The Presence then brought unto Adam a new wife, called Eve. Some say she was made of Adam's rib. Others that she came from another land. Suffice to say, Lucifer's plans against this new humanity had a setback, but only a setback.

One day, Lucifer walked towards the garden called Eden. He was met by the angel Gadreel wielding his flaming sword. Lucifer laughed at Eden's guardian and Gadreel felt great fear. Intimidated by the archangel, Gadreel stood aside. Lucifer, deigning to not sully his hands on the task ahead, appointed one of the elder demons...perhaps the oldest of them....so old it was known only as the First to enter the garden. In the form of a serpent, the First beguiled Eve telling her to eat a certain tree of Eden. The tree was of course one that had been commanded by the Presence that no human should eat of. Eve ate of it at the First's behest, and likewise coaxed Adam into doing the same.

Then all Hell broke loose. 

The tree which Adam and Eve had eaten from was indeed something special, just as they were special in the Eyes of the Presence. It was a Tree of Knowledge and in eating it's fruit, it created a change in the two humans. Something profound and metaphysical had occurred to them, the full extent of which is unknown. Perhaps sin was unleashed upon the Earth. Perhaps where there had once been a singular destiny for mankind now there were many, some paths now dark, not only for the Earth itself but for the universe at large all rippling back to this one instant in time.

It was a test that Adam and Eve had failed. They had been forbidden from on high by Gadreel not to eat of the fruit. Now, they had and as such Eden was lost to them and struggle in the inhospitable world had begun.

But the plans of the Presence stretch out further than one can imagine. The test was not just for the humans, but for all involved in the incident.

For Gadreel, he had fallen sway to fear when he should have shone courage. As a result, the angel would find himself the sole occupant of Heaven's newest addition; its jail.

The First had the opportunity, if only for a moment, to refuse Lucifer's orders: to act not in evil as was its nature, but towards light which is possible of all beings. For the failure of the First, the Presence took away its limbs so that it would never 'act' again. Merely remain an intangible, unfeeling voice which forever cursed the Presence.

And Lucifer.....Lucifer had been given the opportunity to make amends....to return to the grace of the Presence rather than to pursue his vengeance upon humanity for his wounded pride. And for a long moment, the Morningstar had considered this very thing....but the Mark burned hot against him. Lucifer stood against his father and proclaimed that he had likely done the humans a favor as now they could and would act as he did, which should please the Presence as Lucifer was most favored. Lucifer was cut off by thunder and in that moment felt very, very small. Worse still, after the thunder had ended, Lucifer found that no matter how he spoke, how he explained, how he bargained, how much he raged against the heavens....the Presence made no reply.

And so life went on. Adam and Eve came to dwell far from Eden. And Lucifer, pondering his own choices, neglected the throne of Hell and watched them. The archangel felt a mix of resentment and oddly respect for the humans trudging through their day to day lives, farming, building, and multiplying. They were mayflies to him, but admittedly somewhat interesting mayflies.

Adam and Eve had many children in this time, but chief amongst them was their first born son Cain. Cain who tended the gardens and raised the grain of the earth. Always near his side was his younger brother Abel, a shepherd and somewhat of a philosopher. Lucifer noted that the two of them seemed very familiar to him. Cain, stern and uncompromising, reminded him of his elder brother Michael....while Abel....well Lucifer admittedly saw a bit of himself in the lad.

Inseparable were the two brothers, who listened in great detail to the stories of the Presence from their parents. The two would at times gather up the fruits of their toil, be it from the ground or the flock and offer them up to the Presence. It has been said that the Presence smiled upon Abel's offering of the lamb. It has also been said that Presence did not smile upon Cain's offerings...but who is to say?

In time, Cain would notice something odd about Abel though. Abel would often go into the wilderness near their home and stay gone for hours. When he would return, the younger brother would relay that he had been walking with the Presence. Additionally that the Presence would have a great task for him. Curious, Cain would follow Abel at a distance the next time he departed. What he found, confused him.

Abel sat at the feet of a teacher, learning from him all the secrets of the universe, but it was not at the feet of the Presence. No, Lucifer was impersonating the deity though neither Abel nor Cain knew that. The Morningstar had developed a plan. Some time earlier, he had begun to realize that the Mark upon his arm had been infecting him with the venomous influence of the Darkness. That perhaps if he removed it then he would be as his old self again and again his father would speak to him. But the ways of the Mark were clear. It could only be removed if another willingly accepted it. One like him perhaps, one like Abel, to whom he spoke of his favor and for whom he had a task to perform. Abel accepted the plans of the 'Presence' and would take the Mark from him.

These plans changed rather quickly. Believing Lucifer to be the Presence just as Abel had, Cain was filled with rage. That his brother would be the object of the Presence's will and not he....it provoked feelings of inadequacy, of envy, of PRIDE. Something that made Lucifer look up and smile somewhat when Cain picked up the jawbone of an ass and struck Abel in the head. Cain shouted for his brother to get up so he could continue his assault. But Abel remained unmoving in the grass. As Abel's hounds howled in the distance, Cain knew what had happened and his rage became sorrow.

Lucifer however stood and admitted that Cain's actions impressed him, and should the elder brother be willing, he would bestow the Mark upon him instead. Weeping and distraught, Cain accepted the Mark that would forever bear his name. It was done and Cain, ashamed and fearful for his own life headed into the wilderness, some say to the land of Nod (or at least, a part of him did).

Lucifer then ascended, daring to come close to the gates of Heaven once more....only to be savagely struck by Michael. Surprised, Lucifer made his claim of atonement, that he was free of the Mark's influence. Michael, attacking his brother again, had no idea how someone so wise could be so foolish. The Mark was influence yes....only influence...the choices Lucifer had made however were his own. Three strikes, you're out in other words.

Lucifer found himself now in the deepest bowels of Hell, imprisoned in a cage that was to hold him for eternity; the ultimate prison in the ultimate prison. Raging, ranting against the Presence and against all He held dear, Lucifer vowed that he would escape even if it forever. And he began to test the bars of his prison very meticulously.

And on Earth, well....life went on.
