ideal world an alternate universe marvel + dc roleplay
synopsis The world is once again in an age of heroes. After the events of New York, the world has been in chaos, with threats to the world's safety coming more often than they ever have. SHIELD could no longer conceal the presence of metahumans, and when they fell, taken down from the inside by Hydra, they left humanity vulnerable to threats it never could have imagined, until the forces of evil managed to rupture the divide between universes. With the fate of the world balancing upon the shoulders of these rising heroes, just where will your place be in this new ideal world?

ideal world is an alternate universe Marvel + DC roleplay hosted on Jcink Premium since December 2016. Set following the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Justice League, and X-Men: Apocalypse, we are based primarily within the cinematic universes but with more than enough flexibility to allow for inspiration to be drawn from other sources, such as comics, video games, television series, animated shows, and more. We pride ourselves on our relaxed environment and easy-going nature to create a safe and welcoming community for all of our members.

contest of champions first stage

The lights were bright, walking out of the arena gates, and almost immediately, the roar of the crowd died down, watching as each of the contenders stepped out in turn. When the last of them filed out in turn, the Grandmaster rose from his seat in the owner's box, the viewscreens around the arena lighting up with his likeness. "Welcome, welcome, one and all, to the Contest of Champions! I am your host, the original, the Grandmaster."

He paused then, taking in the gathering of contenders in the arena. "Wow, really, is this all we have? Is this really it?" he asked, turning behind him to an attendant. "Huh. I thought we would have had more contenders. We have no more contenders? We have no more contenders." He sighed, melodramatic, before he turned back with a smile. "Well, these are our contenders, and we'll work with what we have.

"You all have gathered here from your world in order to participate in our little contest. You will be tested upon your courage, your strength, your audacity... and, of course, the strength of your team, all in turn. Your first test will be one of skill and style."

He clapped his hands and a series of targets raised up from the ground of the arena at an assortment of heights, even as a glowing force field lifted to surround the audience and protect them from any stray blasts or debris. "Your task is to destroy the most targets," he announced, "but of course, the team who does so in the most impressive way will get a nice bonus from me... so you know, be sure to put on a good show!" He grinned widely. "Good luck, contenders, and may the odds be ever in your favor!"

contest of champions first stage

The first stage of the Contest of Champions is a target break style event. With each post, players will be able to hit one (1), two (2), or three (3) targets with their character in whatever manner they wish. Although points will be awarded for the team that destroys the most targets, at the end of the stage, we will randomize a number between zero (0) and the maximum number of possible targets a single team could have gotten in the stage; whichever team is closest to that number will be given a bonus to their final score.

This portion of the event will run from January 8th to January 21st until it is closed by staff; at this point, the final tally of points will be calculated and awarded for this portion.

posting mechanics

Please specify in a note somewhere in the post how many targets you've opted to hit (1, 2, or 3) and what team your character is participating in the event with; this will make it easier on us later on to calculate final point values.

Players are allowed to double post within the event provided that 48 hours have passed from their last post. This applies for both using the same character or using different characters.

Similarly, characters of the same team but different players must wait until 24 hours have passed from the last post before they post again (to prevent one team from simply spamming the thread and unbalancing the event).

Each post is worth 10 points for that character's team and each target hit awards an additional 5 points; this allows for a maximum of 25 points to be awarded per post.

Once all the points have been tallied, the team with the number of destroyed targets closest to the randomly generated number will have their final point tally multiplied by two (2). Tiebreakers will be decided at the discretion of staff depending on the number of teams which would qualify for the bonus.

Rachel didn't like this. She didn't like all the eyes on her, she didn't like the amount of attention that was here, and she especially didn't like how the man looked at them, the Grandmaster, as though they were toys for his amusement, some lost emperor on his throne. But she had been one of the few Titans available, and so here she was, her head low under the cover of her cowl while the crowd roared around them and made her long to turn her back and run. Instead, she lifted her head and reached within herself for her powers. "Azarath metrion zinthos!" she cried, the familiar release of the lock filling her eyes with darkness and coating her hands in shadows. A few murmurs filled the crowd, which she stifled down into an annoyance; they hadn't stepped forward anyway, they had no right to judge, the only people whose opinions mattered were the ones who already welcomed her just as she was. The lies weren't smooth to swallow, so she let it shape her, build inside and bulk her shadows as she lashed out in a sharp flick of the wrists, sending two bolts of darkness to shatter two targets.

The moment he'd seen the stone on the screen that Grandmaster was holding, Tony knew he had to participate in the games to get that stone. It couldn't fall into the wrong hands.

Lets be real, Tony knew this was all a kind of trap intended to amuse the Grandmaster, but he had no choice right now. And for now it was only him and Nat that came for the call to assemble. Next time he saw Steve he was going to give that boy scout a piece of his mind.

At least the first rounds didn't seem too hard, Tony flew around the stadium to scope the situation before pausing long enough to lock on some targets. "Deploy the micro rockets, Jay" Tony said to his AI. As he said that the panels on his shoulders lifted up, exposing the small rocket panels. A few were let loose, careening for the targets and destroying them in a hail of smoke and fire.

Surveying his work Tony looked around the arena, this whole thing was going to be a task but he couldn't let that stone go to anyone else but the Avengers. Besides, think of all the things Tony could make go boom with that thing.

order through pain sweetheart

Jack flinched at the crowd, ducking his head a little behind the shaggy hair he'd grown out since the Triskelion had gone down. This was bad, he knew that much, being so public when he was supposed to be dead, but ever since Ophelia had shoved that collar around his neck, he hadn't exactly had the ability to say no to it. He swallowed, uneasy as the collar rode down his throat from where the leader of Hydra had tightened it around his throat, her smile as sweet as belladonna as she sentenced him to serving her. He closed his eyes, regretting the choices he'd made as the dust had settled - the futile hope that he'd clung to, news of his love from the ashes and rubble of SHIELD - and hoped that the mess of hair would be enough to conceal his identity for the time being.

At the glare from Ophelia, he lifted his gun and shot three of the targets, one at a time, his service weapon kicking in his hand with the recoil as he fired, the action familiar by this point in his career. Three hits, three shells. He hadn't been the second-in-command of STRIKE Team Alpha for no reason, after all.

Zan hated this game. It reminded him of the time at the space circus but this had a prize to it. Exploiting his abilities in the mean time to try to earn the stone that the Grandmaster had shown off in his little speech. He joined up with Raven as a means to get the stone from anyone wanting to use it for evil. Plus the team name she was on did sound pretty cool. Teen Titans. Despite he was close to not being considered a teen.

At least the crowd had not bothered him at all with all the eyes on him. He was thinking of this as a performance. Just like the Grandmaster wanted. As the targets rose up from the ground, he began to think of which ones would be the quickest to take down and be able to use his acrobatics to show off his agility and flexibility. He focused on his powers to transform his hands into ice claws.

He ran towards the nearest target and slashed at it twice to shred the target, then jumped on top of the broken portion to jump into the air. He twisted his body in the air as he aimed at a target that was higher up. Zan barely managed to get enough force in his jump to hit the target with a fist then a kick to break it, landing in a crouch.

not all of us can control our powers

Scott felt like he was in a video game. Correction. He felt like he was in one of Peter's video games, where everything was going too fast and every single character had powers no one could imagine. And while yes, he supposed he did qualify as a mutant, at the end of the day, that didn't change the fact it felt altogether like a rendition of Super Smash Brothers as he watched the latest contender destroy a target with claws made of ice. Bobby would have been jealous, but then he was sure the Professor was keeping an eye on things for training purposes.

"It'll be just like the Danger Room, Alex," he encouraged, hoping the strained smile on his face didn't betray his worry to his brother. "We got this." He lifted a hand to his visor, opening the tinted mirrors so that he could incinerate one of the moving targets, a part of him half expecting it to explode like the ones did in their own training. "See? Nothing to it."

An infinity stone at stake? Hydra would respond, and would take home the top prize. No other outcome was acceptable. An infinity stone would go a long way to accomplishing the supreme goal of Hydra that the previous director Alexander Pierce fell short of. Ophelia, Madame Hydra, would prove women were the superior sex.

Hail Immortal Hydra

Looking over at another member that she forced brought with her she gave a cold commanding look. Jack Rollins was the best she had at the moment, as unfaithful to the organization as he was. She made sure to have the control to his collar close by. "Beeil dich und zerstΓΆre so viele Ziele wie mΓΆglich, wir werden das nicht verlieren!" She yelled at him before turning and raising her own gun. She fired off quick successive shots to destroy first two targets, and then spun as a new one popped up and quickly destroyed the third.

for Champions
"Just like the danger room...right" Alex mumbled to himself as he stared around at the thousands of people. That was a simulation the DR didn't have and he could see why honestly. This whole competition had him on edge, not the prize, no the prize was great. It was the battling part that had him on edge.

Alex Summers could hold his own in a battle, he was a mutant after all. It was his ability that worried him. He was Havok and even with the barriers up...well he wasn't at all confident about those being able to stop him let alone the others.

Alex watched as Scott easily destroyed one of the targets as he took in a deep breath. "I still don't like this" he mumbled softly before focusing his gaze on the next target. His fingers curling and uncurling as he focused, he could do this, totally. He just had to focus the power down his arm instead of...everywhere else. Scott was immune to his ability, but others probably not.

The ruby red beam slipped down his arm in a circle pattern as always as Alex directed the beam to the next target watching it get destroyed. At least it wasn't so bad.

--

Well it was painfully obvious that playing for the good guys was getting her absolutely nowhere but in trouble, and alongside Tony of all people. Where was their fearless Captain? Where was -- well where was everyone? Why was she standing in the middle of this mess representing the Avengers with only one other Avenger?

Instead of letting herself fall too far into her thoughts, she lets her gaze sweep over the various targets to take in what exactly it is that she's looking at. Target. Seems simple enough, it reminds her of the practice sessions that they've had before. Her eyes cut sharply before her left hand slips down to her right wrist, a quick flick of a finger and there's a hum of electricity to be heard as she steps forward.

One foot in front of the other becomes a sprint toward a pair of moving targets before she leaps up at the last possible moment. Two disks spring from the bracelet, catching each of the target just shy of the center as she drops back to her feet and tilts her head up, eyes narrowed at the near miss before the disks beep once and electricity cackles about the targets before gathering back to the disks which beep once more before they explode; sending bits and pieces of the targets scattering and have her taking a step back to avoid being caught in the crossfire.

It was a little intimidating, Rachel supposed, seeing all these big figures who she'd never known when she'd existed before. She'd seen a couple before, like the man in the metal suit and of course Zan, the teammate she had made an alliance with since the other Titans needed to stay on Earth to protect the city. But the two with the red glowing powers... No, they were nothing like what she had known before, save to unleash her powers upon them to stop them from destroying the city, or on the rare occasion, accept their help.

She lashed out with another flick of her wrist, shattering a target with ease, before she glanced at Zan. "Be ready," she instructed before she lifted from the ground herself, levitating through her powers and driving herself in his direction. When she was close enough, she grabbed his hand, lifting him - goodness but Dick had been lighter when she'd do this before - and blasting a second target on her way up. Once she was satisfied with the distance she'd gotten, she let go of him, letting him fall into a collection of targets. It was an old tactic, one she'd used before with the Titans, and she could only hope he'd figure out what to do quickly enough for it to pay off.

Frank Castle wasn't one to play on a team. He made an exception to his rule when Grandmaster had presented the prize and he figured a lot of people would want that stone. So clearly he had not found someone to be on his team or bothered for that matter. It was clear to him that most people that had arrived were ones with powers. He would have to think during this round on how to take them down. There was only so many ways to shoot a target before it got boring.

Besides he was prepared with being in kevlar, strapped with several guns, Ka-Bar, extra rounds, and had a duffle bag full. And if anyone missed the big white skull on his black kevlar vest, then they really had not paid much attention to who he was yet. He dug around his duffle bag as he seen the others attack targets. The HYDRA team didn't seem to put in any thought and just shoot three targets each. It was a good way to use up ammo quickly if they didn't think to bring extra with them.

He pulled out a high caliber rifle with a scope from the duffle bag and a hand grenade. Frank took notice of two targets relatively close together that were moving. He took a few steps forward and hurled the hand grenade in a high arc in the air. He took aim and took the shot at the precise moment so that the explosion would take out the two targets. He turned to the left a few degrees and aimed at a higher target.

After a few seconds, Frank had taken the second shot and took out the target in bullseye fashion, shattering it. The shot would have been impossible if it wasn't for his sniper training. Now if any one tried to touch his duffle bag, Frank would shoot them. Since he didn't exactly have a team mate that would ask for him to share with.

not all of us can control our powers

Sure, some of the other contestants - okay, maybe a lot of them - were getting pretty fantastic with their moves, but Scott only had eyes for his little brother. He had faith in Alex, probably a lot more than he should given how little control his younger brother sometimes showed in the Danger Room simulations, but even so, he kept a careful eye on the other, the long-practiced gaze he'd picked up to keep his sibling out of trouble when they'd been in foster care. He grinned when he saw the target smolder, even if the shot had been a little wild. "Nice shot, Alex," he encouraged, as though he hadn't just been ready to call out a warning. "My go now."

He grinned and looked around before he carefully set his eyes on a target and reached upwards, his fingers turning the visor again to shoot another beam of brilliant red light. This time, though, he aimed directly underneath the arm of one of the other contestants, barely dodging around them in an impressive display of skill to shatter a target just beyond the vulnerable flesh.

Showy? Yes. Effective? Definitely. A sign of arrogance? Perish the thought!

"Watch out Groot!" Rocket yelled as he got out his not inconsiderable gun and aimed at the targets popping up. Squeezing off a few shots he quickly decimated two of them while Groot climbed up his shoulder.

"I am Groot?" The small tree like being said as he looked at the smoking remains of the targets.

Rocket smirked as he rested the gun on his other shoulder. "Yeah, that's right Groot, we're gonna win that stone. So what if the others aren't with us. We'll do it all on our own. No way we're gonna pass up the chance to sell...er... save another Infinity Stone." When he'd heard what the Grandmaster was up to again, thanks to news from his relative The Collector, Rocket ran his ass all the way over to get in on the action. All he had to do was win whatever the Grandmaster was offering, run back to Xandar where they had the other stone, and just rake in the reward money. Now this was a sweet plan.

"Speak for yourself," Jack muttered under his breath before he shook his head and made a show of shooting Ophelia an uneasy look - his mother had nearly beaten it into him, pretending that he'd never spoken another language aside from English in his life, and it had been something that had saved his life a couple of times in the past - before he lifted his gun again. His next two shots were easy to line up, so he made sure that he could puncture through one to hit another in something that he'd seen Brock do often with some of the higher-caliber weapons he would bring out.

God, he felt more like he was at some high-end high fantasy shooting range rather than some glorified gladiator competition.
