Okay. I'll take maybe a day or two to scope out where the IC is going and I'll jump back in.
Is there a link to a character roster?

Welcome back, Pax! :D And yep, like Haedros said, lots of junk's been happening. Let's see...the mayor was assassinated and his death broadcast to all of Gotham, the new mayor called in the National Guard, the cops found out that Tim's Red Robin and arrested him along with Alfred and Steph, Bane crashed Wayne Manor and is currently in a fight with Batgirl, Whitesnake, Cooper and Huntress (yes, we have a Huntress now :P) and Carrie blew up the Batcave! :lol: And it's only Monday morning in the storyline! :lol:

@New Castillan- your guy is a DJ/musician, right? What if he had a benefit concert in Robinson Park? I'm sure with everything the people of Gotham are going through, they'd appreciate something like that. But as there is a curfew and a state of emergency, he would need permission from Harvey Bullock and GCPD would probably have to work out security which would be a nightmare with all those people. It could be a giant fundraiser as well just to give any supervillains something to steal. ;) Not saying that the concert would be a definite, it's just an idea.

And Sterk! Welcome back! Of course Nightwing is still available, just jump back in anytime! :D

That's alot, but fortunately it doesn't affect me too much, I don't think. I'll do a timeskip though.

You know what would be cool? Right now all these aspiring heroes are gonna assemble a team hosted by Green Arrow to fight Bane after (presumably) he captures/breaks Batgirl. When they start fighting Bane’s terrorism, its planned that Batman will return to guide them. Then I think Haedros wants Bane to break the bat. This will leave the new Disciples discouraged and hopeless. Along comes Nightwing, who’s returned from Bludhaven, to give the heroes new hope and help them.

Obviously, it won’t turn out exactly like this because it’s an RP not a fanfic, but I think it sounds like an interesting direction for the story.

AWESOME posts, Headros, Freedom and Fronket! And Maggie's the new chief! I guess getting your butt kicked by Bane does have its rewards! :lol:

That was a really great post, Lic! :) I LOVE Huntress! And your idea about Nightwing leading the Disciples is a good one too although not sure how Babs feels about. Actually, I kinda do which should make for some interesting drama! :lol:

Caleb’s probably going to go all hero mode and try to rescue Babs by himself and get absolutely crushed by Bane
IVE GOT TOOOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS!

Seriously I have way too much time to spend on RPs. It’s actually kinda sad.


Also I’m obsessed with JoJos Bizarre Adventure (if you didn’t notice.)

Yeah this'd probably be a good opportunity for Nightwing to rejoin the fray.

Poor Cooper, I feel so bad for him... Great job on the post, Whales! :)

@Haedros- Yeah, Bane's gonna crush Caleb like a soda can. :lol:

@Sterk- With all the back and forth from Bludhaven to Gotham, Dick should get commuter miles or something! :p

@Freedom- Yay! Glad to see that case of writer's block clear up. ;)

Just read your latest post, Haedros. Nice. Just fyi, Babs is gonna remain unconscious until Bane finishes trussing her up or whatever so you don't need to wait for me before posting for Bane's again. ;)

Now I know there's a rule against being Bruce Wayne Batman.

But nobody said anything about Dick Grayson Batman.

Just a thought, it might serve to scare the piss out of the current roster of villains.

As the real Batman is coming back, Bruce finding Dick pretending to be him would definitely create some drama! :p

Hero APP:
Name/Alias: Dinah Queen/Black Canary
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Appearance:
Image

Personality: Confident, Bold, Courageous, Independent, Outspoken, Responsible, Bossy, Slightly Arrogant
Faction: None, although she may join the Disciples
Race: Human
Backstory:
Dinah Queen has heroism in her blood. She is the daughter of billionaire anti-vigilante activist Oliver Queen, formerly known as the renowned hero “Green Arrow,” and her mother is Dinah Lance, the original Black Canary. Dinah was born with a genetic mutation that allows her to produce an ultrasonic scream capable of breaking non-metal objects, and seriously bending metals like iron. It can also incapacitate most human opponents for about five minutes. Dinah discovered this power as a child, and soon learned that her mother employed it in her escapades as Black Canary, a former government superspy who worked independently during Dinah’s childhood as a vigilante on Star City’s streets. Dinah’s mom personally trained the young girl in 11 martial arts, some relatively unknown. Her mother was forced to drop the Canary mantle after a freak accident in battle, leaving her in a wheelchair and unable to fight. 15-year old Dinah Queen donned her mom’s suit and left to fight crime in Gotham as Black Canary, against the will of her disillusioned father and worried mother. Dinah joined two other heroes to create the short-lived Birds of Prey which at the time included the Huntress and Batgirl. She maintained close relationships with both Barbara Gordon and Helena Bertinelli, although she has an especially close friendship with the young Helena Wayne.

However, just as she was beginning to feel content in Gotham, Dinah’s younger sister Sara informed her that their mom’s condition was worsening. Worried that she wouldn’t be able to say bye to the person she loved most, Dinah rushed back to Star City to care for her sick mother. In the meantime, she fought crime in Star City along with her younger sibling Sara Queen aka White Canary. She pleaded with her old father Oliver to return to Star City, but he refused as he was very involved in his anti-vigilante lobbying in Gotham and his business was growing in Gotham City. Eventually she’ll be forced to return to Gotham to help in the fight against Bane and to convince her father to provide them with the means to fight such a huge battle.
Powers/Weapons/Tech:
- Prodigious hand-to-hand fighter: She’s mastered martial arts like Aikido Boxing, Capoeira, Hapkido, Judo, Jujutsu, Kung Fu, Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Shuri-Te, Taekwondo, and Wing Chun.
- Canary Cry: Her only superpower is her signature ultrasonic scream that she is capable of producing once every hour. It can be used to bend metal, break brick and wood, and incapacitate enemies for five minutes. She prefers to use it only in emergency situations and only against superpowered individuals, because it burns a lot of her energy when after she does the cry.
- Multilingual: As the daughter of a spy, Dinah has been taught fluency in English, French, Spanish, German, Arabic, Russian, Hindi, and Mandarin. She is near fluent in Japanese, Italian, Urdu, and Portuguese. She can also speak a bit of conversational Korean and Hungarian.
- Expert at Espionage: Dinah can walk almost silently, and is especially adept at stealing things. She’s also a very skilled hacker.
Weaknesses: Using her superpower, the Canary Cry, to its full extent makes her feel really tired and unable to fight, which is why she rarely uses it.
Skills: She’s convincing in conversation and she uses her natural charm to her advantage.
RP Examples: IC thread
Extra Information
Day Job: Mechanic
Living Place: Old family home in Star City
Voice Actor: Emma Stone
Likes/Dislikes: Likes reading, dislikes people who she thinks are more skilled than her.

Ok I’ll be ready to post soon as well. Glad Damian got rescued by Huntress from certain death in a pile of rubble. I’ll give him a bit of time before he wakes up in the Disciples’ custody.

I mean, Bruce has actually been preparing Dick to take up the cowl, that's really the whole point. So I doubt it'd cause drama.
