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.

His power came about as a result of a chemical slurry charges with lightening and his own body. It's uncertain which chemicals or their amounts affected what, or if his own body's makeup contributed to the mix.


He can move fast. Very fast. Fast enough that it looks like time stands still. Bullets hang in the air, debris hangs unsupported, people become statues. If he's careful, he can redirect and stop trajectories without causing damage to either himself or others. So far, he's rarely exceeded speeds beyond Mach 4, due to the negative affects on a populated area.


Fast Healing
A broken bone can knit back together fully in about an hour, if the break is clean. However, it's important to know that it's not intelligent healing, just fast. If the broken pieces were laying the wrong way (such as if he were unconscious), they'd heal together wrong, and he'd have to break it again. This also makes him somewhat resistant to some toxins, and more sensitive to others, given how fast it works through his system.
High Stamina
He recovers very quickly from physical fatigue, both muscular and neurological, but when he finally sleeps after pushing himself, it's very deep and difficult to rouse him from--but usually short-lived. Assuming he has the appropriate caloric levels, a few hours is sufficient to put him right back in working order.


Defying Gravity
Physics work. This includes gravity--but it also includes the laws of inertia. An object in motion will stay in motion, until outside forces act upon it. He just happens to be a little faster than some of those forces. This allows him to do things like run across water, up walls, and along other falling objects, as long as he keeps running.
Static Discharge
The laws of inertia also dictate that there are consequences for being an outside force, himself. He creates an insane amount of friction when he runs, as he's basically shoving past molecules faster than they can slide out of the way. This creates a lightening-like discharge that's stronger or weaker depending on the atmospheric density of where he's running and how fast he's going. It also means he has to wear a special suit, or he'll wind up being completely naked if he has to run at high speeds. The static discharge can also cause small fires and play havoc with unshielded electronics.


His body requires a lot of energy to do what he does, even when he's not doing anything at all. This means he's near perpetually hungry, or at least willing to eat.
His body also requires oxygen to function. He can only maintain great speeds for as long as he can go without it, then he has to stop to breath.

Kinetic Force

False Strength
With a running start and well-timed application of kinetic force, he use the shockwave of his movement to hit more strongly than he could otherwise.
Surgical Precision
If he can get a bead on the exact frequency of a material in question, he can crumble it by vibrating at the same wavelength--but this requires trial, error, and concentration.

kinda out of my league, here

It all started.... well. As much as the incident was burned into his mind, as much as it was the very thing that propelled him onward, the one thing he wanted to escape but never could--details faded. And he was always so paranoid that the details he forgot were going to be the ones that mattered.

It all started with the incident. The Incident, it more than warrants the capital letter. Something killed his mother, and the blame pointed straight to his father. And ever since then... his life slowed down. Stopped, almost. Even after the lightening hit, and he'd picked himself up, without a scratch (but he'd remembered it hurting, agonizing, just this side of too much pain). Even after then, when his body changed on him, but this time with pleasant surprises, unlike puberty (that was fun). Even then, he'd been at a standstill. Trying to find a way to clear his father's name, to prove it hadn't been him. Restore his reputation.

It... wasn't really something he could achieve. Not where he was. Not without more knowledge than he had. He'd thrown himself into the work, and he was pretty sure some of the chemicals (not all really, uh, advisable to keep in living quarters to begin with) had a lot to do with how he'd gained his powers. But now he had to minimize expenses, because almost everything was going to food. He felt like he was starving all the time. He could theorize why. Calories and healing and running. Metabolisms don't work for free.

So he'd still be stuck, but a different way, not that he'd really be making progress even with money from what jobs he could scrape up that forgave his perpetual tardiness. (Too much to do, too much to think, it was hard to keep up, sometimes. Most times.)

Then he shook loose.

Something--someone--shook him loose.

He'd had a chance to help save the world. Stand shoulder-to-shoulder with giants. Amazing people, battle-hardened and ready, and all of them more than a little scary. Next to them? He didn't even blip on the radar. But he was there, anyway. Because he'd been asked. Been invited. He needed... something. Friends? Friends, he needed friends. Being alone in his head, thinking too much... it always slowed him down. He just wanted to stop thinking. Avoid it as much as possible. Maybe he could stop trying to figure out the impossible. Maybe he could stop the doubt that he didn't remember it right, after all. He still was certain it wasn't his Dad--but that didn't mean it was bizarre. Didn't mean he hadn't suppressed some important memory, some important detail, that would exonerate his father.

Yeah he could go without thinking so much for awhile.

i just need friends...
