It is the year 2059. It has 40 years since the golden age of superheroes in the 2010’s. Today, all of the original heroes and villains are old, and most of are retired or semi-retired. They are barely in good enough physical health to perform the fantastic feats that they originally did back in their day. This generation of heroes have been coined “the old-timers”.
Meanwhile, a new generation of “hip”, youthful heroes and villains are appearing rapidly throughout the city, challenging the mantle of the old timers and sparking a rivalry between the two generations. This new generation have been coined “Newbies” by the old-timers.
And, thanks to the passing of time and the advances of technology and industry that come with it, society has evolved. Humanity is on the cusp of entering the “futuristic age”.
However, all of these recent circumstances has created the perfect storm to birth a new threat, more dangerous that anything the heroes past or present have ever faced before. Now, the old timers may be forced to leave retirement for one last bout, and the Newbies will have to learn to put aside their differences with the old-timers, and learn from each other and work together to stop this new danger.
**1.)**No OP or ridiculously powerful characters.
Apparently, some people are unclear of the exact definition of this rule. So, let me spell out what abilities would be considered “OP”:
-Time Travel/Time Altering
-Long-distance, instantaneous teleportation, expecially to places the charactr has never been before
-No-selling, unless your character could realistically be unaffected or unharmed by an attack.
-And any of the like.
2.) The only exception to the above rule is Mctoran.
**3.)**No Autohitting, Autododging, Godmodding or Metagaming.
**4.)**Please be respectful and civil with all other players OOC.
**5.)**There is no limit to the amount of characters you can have.
6.) Even after the RP has started, the sign ups will remain open. New players/characters will always be welcome.
Speaking of Sign-ups, I should also make all of you aware that, for my entire 2059 series, I will not be making anymore signup topics. I shall be using the same sign up topic for every RP in this series. So, even though the title says that this is the sign-up topic for “2059: the Superhero Revolution”, it can also apply to “2059: The Invasion” and so on.
