Kreuzritter told me to have an "Elevator Pitch" for the game. So I narrowed it down to the summed-up version: In a world with a Justice League/Avengers, you're The Defenders. A rich guy/super-enthusiast is backing you, and now you have to prove yourselves in a world that's cynical about these "lower-tier" teams.
Question: Does this backing imply an additional equipment budget, just a free team base and/or team vehicle, or is it purely backstory?

I'm extremely tempted to make a full-blown wizard character, both because I'm currently playing two very physical characters in other supers games (so it'd be a nice change of pace) and because I know how much the archetype annoys Jab (and it'd be fun to play within his Jabverse's house rules on the matter). I just need to figure out a "hook" that makes the character something other than a Zatanna Expy.

If i might aid you upon your quest to annoy Jab...have you ever played the card game Magic:The Gathering? They have a very fine selection of Wizard "Themes" for your perusal.... :evil:

I'm very interested. I may have missed it in the post somewhere, but did you say how many players you'd be accepting?

And I mean, Ken has often intimated to me about how much he thinks that the Wall should be on the northern border, not the south.
Yeah, along I-80. ;)
What kind of crap glass was used in the windows of Wayne Manor (post-Crisis) that an animal with a mass of less than 27 grams (i.e. weighs less than an ounce) could break through it?

Just to reiterate, I work a full time job, and don't have the ability to do long responses all day long :). so I'll have to do a mass series of replies all at once, to everyone.
