To Save the World!
StoryGood always triumphs over evil. It is one of those unwritten laws. And with the Golden Age of Heroism at it's peak, it doesn't seem likely to change. All over the World Super-powered humans are turning their abilities to upholding justice and freedom.But where there is good, there is evil. Wherever you get SuperHeroes you get SuperVillians. Most insidious of these is Doctor Danger. Recently escaped from Confinement, it is rumoured that he is building an army of SuperVillians, the Coalition of Corruption. In response to this threat, a legion of SuperHeroes, the League of Salvation, is coming together. From all over the world, Superbeings gather...the fight will not be easily won...Already they have foiled one of Doctor Danger's most audacious plans yet. Using the Omega radiation produced by all SuperHeroes and SuperVillians he intended to ignite the Earth's core and blow up the planet! The failure of this plan cost him his life...But with the Coalition all but collapsed, villainy did not cease. No-one expected it to. Canada has been taken over by a totalitarian regime, led by the mysterious Ms. Amandine, who is searching for something in the Northern tundra.No less than two psychic supervillians sprang up, on an old opponent of Mentor known as Darkmage, who was defeated in Australia by a band of heroes, and, more recently, the man known as Midnight, who is reforming the Coalition.But, possibly worst of all, unknown to all, the technopathic supervillian Manchine has brought the head of Doctor Danger back to life! What plan he and his two wards, the Russians Piotr and Illyana, have is unclear.Canada has been freed, and the artefact Ms. Amandine was searching for was revealed to be the prison of an extra-dimensional being known as the Cavalier, a self-serving individual who's meddling before helped Doctor Danger in his scheme.While the psychic Midnight continues his efforts to reform the Coalition, recruited and building bases, two distractions have come up, inadvertently aiding his cause. The hero Sluice is under the possession of a centuries old psychic from feudal Japan, who is using her to forward his goal of world domination. On the other side of the world, Fade and his allies have come up against his old team-mate Frigid, a hero-turned-villain, who plans to use a machine invented by Fade's father to boost her powers exponentially.With villains and hardships alike overcome, the world seemed peaceful and safe. the Coalition had withdrawn into the woodwork to lick its wounds and gather its strength. But alas! For a new threat arose. A threat from the stars in the form of a dread warlord Technax, head of a mechanical army. He wanted something from earth, and was not afraid to conquer the whole planet to get itIn this RPG you can join as a Hero or Villain.

He is totally bald, and while one green eye survived, the other is cyberneticPower: Enhanced Intelligence and Eidetic memoryAllegiance: Coalition of CorruptionArea: Eastern EuropeBio: Doctor Danger was one of the founding members of the Coalition, making him a veteran nemesis to superheroes and so extremely dangerous. However as he aged he grew tired of his schemes constantly being foiled, so risked it all on one last gamble; a plot to use the Omega radiation given off by super-powered beings when they use their power to ignite the world's core and blow up the planet. This backfired when the extra-dimensional creature known as Cavalier intervened for his own selfish reasons, and only the lab Creel had been working in exploded, practically killing him. Manchine rescued his head, complete with still-living brain, and hooked up to some contraption to make sure it kept living. While Doctor Danger is still weary of the world and just wants to be laid to rest, Manchine has other ideas...Real Name: Matthew WrightAlias: ManchineAppearance: Varies between different bodies, but is usually a hulking mess of armour, cybernetics and flesh, with all sorts of wires and blades sticking out.Power: Manchine is a cyborg, but with no actual powerAllegiance: Coalition of CorruptionArea: Originally from Silicon Valley, California, but is now of no fixed abode.Bio: A technician and scientist with a brilliant mind for electronics. He became very proud and egotistical due to the praise he received for his inventions. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with cancer of the brain, and given only a few months to live at most. Furious, he turned to his work, forging himself a body and transferring his consciousness into it. It didn't take him long to realise that in this body he had the power to do anything he wanted. Has been keeping Doctor Danger alive, knowing that Creel is one of the few people who could properly lead the Coalition
