So, you're our resident HFY! guy.

 

Hmm ... I'd rate you a four out of ten.

 

You haven't brought out the biggatons yet.

 

Thank god.

Well, I don't commit xenocide out of hand, so of course I'm not going to rate very high.

 

The so-called gods however, have fired the first shots in this little war. Remember your myths? The brutalized maidens? The human blood spilled upon altars?

 

It will not stand. By gun, sword and steel, we will claim revenge.

Way I figure it, humanity always tends to get the short end of the stick in RPGs and fiction. Always a better race. Always a superior species.

 

I consider it my duty to grab that stick, sharpen it to a point, and stab said 'better' race in the eye with it.

Those ways of stabbing the stick in said species's eye don't have to be conventional weaponry. See Iron Man or Doctor Strange. Heck, even Punisher could hold his own.

Sounds slightly supremacist, but much less so when you put it that way.

 

I suppose my attitude of equality toward aliens is partially because I was into Transformers, Superman, Dragon Ball Z, and Ben 10 in childhood, and I'm still into Transformers and DBZ to this day.

 

And I thought the Protoss allied with the humans at some point in Starcraft.

 

Of course, I think the way I do mainly because I learned from years of witnessing and sometimes experiencing it that unequal treatment is (far too many censored words not to be banned even if BZP did allow their use)

I know that.

 

But my mentality is "look out for anyone who's not evil" regardless of species.

 

Which is why I had my objections to some of your comments.

 

Deicide would start a war we can't win, by the way. Even in Marvel, humanity has never faced the full wrath of any pantheon.

Yeah, that's the kind of thing that would make me move to an alien planet where I could fit in with the general strength and intelligence level of the inhabitants, and then launch nukes at Earth.

Deicide. Intriguing. This RPG seems to be going all over the place. Granted, this transition's been happening for quite some time, but it's beginning to feel way less like an X-Men RPG, and more like a Marvel Universe RPG.

This. The prospect of SHIELD ignoring the X-Men-Brotherhood Conflict is really low.

 

Do you think that this RPG will get to the point where we'll have to rename it Marvel: Darkest Days or something?

 

Also, completely unrelated, but isn't Weapon-X a Canadian funded program run by Department K? If so, wouldn't this cause said department and Department H to investigate? I'm pretty sure that the Canadians wouldn't like their portion of Weapon-Plus being sabotaged, so they might send Alpha Flight to retaliate.

Welp, as far as I can see, mutants and the other diverse superpowers of Earth are what make the planet distinct in the Marvelverse. 

 

Sure, the Shiar have their epic technology, the Skrulls are a planet of Mystiques, and Super-strength is commonplace among the stars, but humanity's ability to adapt and its potential for growth are distinct. Unique even. :') Mainstream humans need to see the future. They need to learn to stop worrying and love the mutant. And (powerful) mutants need to stop worrying about pesky things like personal liberties and a normal life. They should embrace their role as the bulwark of the planet, Earth's sword and shield against foreign threats.

Correction: It isn't actually above the city, because taking it there while virus infected would have been a bad idea. It's not far from the city, but it is further north.
