Hey, Xero, what about Alfred? I don't need to include him in my backstory, I was just wondering.

Backstory is up, will make the minor changes to Nightwing to "age him up" a bit in the next day or two.

Alright, I will be closing recruitment here. All those who did post a character are in. Thank you for your interest. I will set up the IC tomorrow. If there is any form of tidying up for your character, please do so before you would post in the IC. Once again, thank you.

Cool. I don't think there are really any changes I need to make, but I'll give it another look over before I join the IC. Hope you guys make sure I don't miss anything...

Also, Thorp, I just read your backstory for Nightwing. And it was awesome. Kudos.

See, I knew I would make it past the IF... :wink:

I should have time to tweak Nightwing tonight if all goes well.

I realize you're not technically recruiting yet, but I figured I might as well drop this while I had a moment. May need some minor tweaks, but I've had this PC build ready to go for a good while.

Background: As Dick Grayson pulled himself up for another pull-up on the sewer pipe in his underground bunker, he let his mind drift for a moment:

One time, Tim, Babs and I were sitting around talking at a diner talking. And…

You know, we didn’t do that enough. Just me with my family as…us. No Batarangs. No supervillain trying to destroy Gotham. Just us talking, spending time together like normal families do. It goes without saying that we were far from a normal family, but we were a family. I didn’t appreciate that part enough when everything was, even though we didn’t realize it at the time; good.

Anyway, we were talking in code, of course, and Tim brought up the fact I had known The Joker longer than either of them. That gave me pause. I hadn’t really thought about it that way before. When Bruce took me in and trained me, The Joker was one of the first villains I ever fought. Bruce tried to keep me out of it, but I wouldn’t listen (shocker). We beat him like we pretty much always did for years but I will never forget seeing him the first time. There was always that constantly smile, and the laugh that probably makes the hair stand up on the backs of hyenas. But it was those eyes. You would think they would be dead…cold…lost. But they’re the opposite. They sparkle. They dance. They take in everything.

For someone who has caused so much death, the one thing I always remember about The Joker is that of all the beings I’ve ever encountered, The Joker might be the most ALIVE.

That always seemed like some massive cosmic flaw. Or more than likely, considering the recipient, it’s a cosmic JOKE.

But it’s not funny anymore. It never was funny.

It was a cosmic mistake. One that I am going to correct.

I can’t believe he’s been in power for 15 years. It’s been 15 years since Bruce and Tim died. 15 years since the he and his army of villains and psychopaths killed most of the Justice League. 15 years since me, Babs, Rose, Clark and others went into hiding. It’s been too long. But now it’s about to change. I’ve done what I could, saved who I could without drawing too much attention to myself. But I’m no idiot and I don’t have a death wish. I couldn’t make a move on The Joker by myself. I needed help.

I needed Superman. nd he’s ready now. There’s others ready now.

I've BEEN ready.

I’ve had 15 years to let the pain of my family’s deaths fester in my heart. 15 years to let the disgust build as I see what he’s turned this country into.

The bad news for the Joker is that I’ve had 15 years to PLAN.

I know Clark will want to bring him to justice. Let the world courts pass judgment. That’s what Bruce and Diana would want, too. He knows I was trained my entire life to think the same way.

But he killed Jason. He killed Tim. He killed Helena. He killed Stephanie.

He killed Bruce.

He killed my family.


Dick swung off the sewer pipe, did a somersault and strolled over to his equipment. He looked over his arsenal and pulled up a razor sharp Batarang.

His judgment has already been passed…his sentence…is death.

At my hands.


Fixed up and with a new pic to show a more mature Dick Grayson.

That's actually a really good image for older Nightwing.

Wait, are we in civilian guise, or in super-suits? And in broad daylight?

I'm sorry everyone. I am preoccupying my time with other games and not on this one. With my attentions elsewhere, I think I may need to close this game. I am sorry everybody.
