The official Mutants & Masterminds boards
It seems like this future is in some ways less dangerous then current times. Though the 2012 is a period of transition which can be very dang....interesting. Interesting in the Chinese proverb sense.
Is this why all the big name superheroes decided to settle down or at least find other pursuits?
I really can't see the Black Sheep being in the Tomorrow Society. If they caught him I would imagine they would throw him in the deepest darkest hole they can find.
Who took over Raven Industries?
I am not understanding how Brick would have the possibility of death when Alex and George didn't?
I know Ashley killed many people but did she after she was turned? What exactly is the errata on that spell?
Did Valkyrie dye her hair black? Did Lucien grow a pencil thin mustache and adopt a Spanish accent? Does the family snap in time? These questions need answers.
I think Death is just to weirded out of to try and take his soul. I mean they would meet, BD would chat Death up, they would go out for drinks, and the next morning Death would wake up without robe and scythe, a pounding headache, and no memory of the past night. Death just doesn't want to deal with that kind of hassle.
Divinos and Athena are good friends but there is no romantic chemistry between them at all. Still Divinos is beginning to enjoy things like theater, cool jazz, and well food.
They need a good spy to run the organization not some military brass. Cloak & Dagger business should be well cloak and dagger.

General Venom seemingly died decades ago and is irrelevant to most people's lives.
Jack Washington III also known as The Intelligence has become a pure science criminal with dreams of instituting a technological utopia with himself as godlike mastermind over a race of cyborgs and androids,
He, thankfully, has had a lot of time to think about this since he's been imprisoned the entire time.
Aquarius sacrificed his life to protect Atlantis and was raised to godhood by Posiedon. A fact that backfired when he supported Athena to driving back the sea. He has since sired numerous demigod children.
Red Jaguar died protecting Nestoria from an invasion from the future.
Hecate has assumed the mantle of Athena as Earth's Defender with the ressurection of her family. NO ONE on Earth accepts her as a hero and she's hunted in-between her acts of heroism.
Moss Pit was destroyed by Michael Drake who has since been charged with finding a new host for the being's Elemental Powers.
Jack Union and Jane Union died blowing up a meteor of Annihilation Zone matter sent to destroy Earth. Really, no one saw that coming.
The Dark Undermaster has since spent the past 1,000 relative years studying with the Furies and Lamialith the arts of black magic. Having grown bored with the gatekeeper role long ago, he's abandoned it and now intends to take over the world!
You know, for kicks.
The Red King attempted to live a peaceful life with his daughter only for her to be killed by mutant-hating bigots. Using a power-drainer, he proceeded to steal the energy of Helios the Sun King and killed his old mentor before causally eradicating the pathetic remnants of his followers.
The Red King (also known as the Scarlet Emperor since he's abandoned his Alice in Wonderland fetish) is now the single most powerful Metaman in the world, possessed of limitless genius, and fully intent on transforming all humans into superpowerful Metamen. He's even enslaved the Lord Evillutionary.
Ultramind merged with Death Mask III and the two beings have since become a star conquering evil.
Kenneth Kane, ironically, is trapped in the Annihilation Zone as a time-travel accident left two of them. Kenneth Kane was found guilty of all of his crimes, forcing him to be banished for the rest of his natural life.
The Iron Khan perished and his daughter has since taken over the secret society with her all-female ninjas. They have since adopted a more classist-based movement designed to destroy civilization.
Assisting them is Deathwing, the great grandson of Graywing who is every bit the physical and mental equal of his ancestor. Yes, he looks like a very bulky luchador.
Nergal, a blond cackling maniac, has seized control over a third of hell and is actively plotting to conquer/corrupt everything in the universe. Mostly out of boredom, Belial and Mister Hoppy have allowed him to become part of Hell's Triumvarite.
The Darkness Beyond Time was slain by Orkus who hoped to claim his power, instead releasing numerous Elder Gods' avatars into reality who are plotting the destruction of everything. The barriers between the Annihilation Zone and this reality will continue to weaken until a replacement is found.
The Wicked Queen from every fable ever has taken over Otherworld for the time being. The bright and noble fey are fighting back this time.

Villains of the New Era
The Corruptor: A demented sorcerer and scientist from the Utopian Future of Wonders' far distant future. A former Patriots Legion villain, he believed the wonder and glory of the Future resulted in humanity's eventual extinction and that evil was necessary to keep us strong. He's since traveled further back in time to continue his war on good.
Dagon: The dreadful 100ft tall Cthulhuoid terror has awakened fully from his slumber and attacked cities with tidal waves, sanity-blasting psychic attacks, and seemingly endless hordes of Merrow. Several times, he's been driven away by Atlantis and the power of Aquarius the God but it's only a matter of time before his siblings start waking up.
Deathwing: Intelligent, ruthless, and hyper-skilled, Death Wing is one of the most dangerous men in the world. He has managed to fight Black Wing III to a standstill on numerous occasions and brought numerous countries to the ground. Death Wing is a leader of the Western Branch of the Black Hand and is building it up on class warfare lines.
The Doll Factory: A corporation formerly owned by General Venom and designed to create his androids. The Doll Factory is a sleazy organization that creates sexaroids, assassins, and dopplegangers for those willing to pay the multimillion dollar price per creation.
Dungeon: A former CIA operative turned kidnapper. Dungeon targets wealthy and powerful people before locking them up in horroric sanity-blasting cages. If he's paid his ransom, he returns them only slightly worse for wear. If he doesn't, he locks them away permanently in his personal zoo of turtures. Dungeon is a psychopath gadgeteer whose wealth now exists only to fuel his hobby.
Nergal: A beautiful angelic being who has crawled his way up from the lowest part of the pits. He is overwhelmingly eager to corrupt the innocent, destroy heroes, and generally acts as an overeager supervillain as much as an ancient Lord of Nightmare.
The Psychodelic: Blessed with the powers of Mighty Man merged with the astral consciousness of a deceased future-warlord, the Psychodelic is a lunatic 70s radical whose absurd clothing and habits is matched by his terrifying power.
The Saint of Murder: Believed to be Blood Wing's re-animated corpse. The Saint of Murder is a theme serial killer who enjoys killing people in horrible death traps, with gadgets, and leaving clues to the police. It'd all be terribly comic book if not for the fact he's killed dozens of people since his debut.
The Silver Phoenix: A former Egyptian General who discovered an alien artifact which could give him an indestructible suit of armor. The Silver Phoenix believes himself to be a de-powered god and is constantly seeking new magic and technology to make himself a literal one.
The Unionists: A group of radical British superpowered punks who have decided to devote themselves not to the ideal of the Red King or Madame Tomorrow but Jack Union and his sister. The Unionists kill criminals, rob banks, and generally do whatever the hell they want. Membership is restricted, of course, to people from the U.K.
Wicked Queen: A member of the Lords of Winter who is the embodiment/inspiration for all other Wicked Queens and evil stepmothers. She is a sorceress, beautiful, and utterly lacking in morality. The Wicked Queen desires nothing more than to be loved but because she's such a monster, she never can be. Such is the irony of Fairy Tales.
