Wearing the Cape

Wearing the Cape


After the Event, Superheroes known as Capes became a thing of the norm and along with Superheroes comes Supervillians. Based on the Wearing the Cape series by Marion G. Harmon {OPEN}

Wearing The Cape

On August 18th, ten years ago for 3.2 seconds, every human being in the world simultaneously experienced total sensory deprivation-no sight, hearing, or physical sensation. A small percentage of individuals did later claim to have heard something, what one person described as "the sound of God striking a cosmic tuning fork." However, when people remember what came to be know as the Event, what they most remember is not the sensory blackout or the worldwide power failure that came with it, but what happened next. They remember where they were when the first superhumans appeared.

You are a "breakthrough". Breakthroughs are caused by an unpredictable survival mechanism. Something life-threatening happened to you and in that moment, your body reacted. The degree of empowerment caused by such a situation varies widely. Sometimes it's just enough to deal with the situation, other times far beyond that. For example, accidental electrocution kills and injures hundreds if not thousands of people every year, so electrokinetic breakthroughs are common. But the breakthrough could simply make you immune to electrical shock, or give you taser-like abilities. Or it could go above and beyond and give you the power to drain electrical systems, generate electromagnetic pulses, or even fly by electrostatic levitation.

Not everyone who received abilities were good and where there are superheroes, there must be supervillians. Miraculous powers have not made the world a more peaceful place. It is up to you which path you take after your breakthrough. Will you join the Sentinels and fight for the good of mankind? Or will use your powers to spread chaos and destruction? Or will you just go on with your life as if nothing happened at all?

Re: Wearing the Cape

Although I do not believe that all men must die, I am definitely interested. Probably gonna make an anti hero character of that's cool.

Re: Wearing the Cape

I'm definitely interested in this and will make a Sentinal Character, All men must die!

Re: Wearing the Cape

The books pretty unknown, but I really liked the idea of it. I look forward to the characters you make :)

Re: Wearing the Cape

Hopefully a third "I'm interested but haven't read the book" isn't too annoying. I'm leaning towards a good character, but not necessarily in the Sentinels if possible, even if all men must die.

Re: Wearing the Cape

Seconding that interest, though I've never heard of the book either. Not too sure what side I'm going with for my character, might even go for a neutral-ish, mercenary side if that is allowed.

Re: Wearing the Cape

Never heard of the book, though I might check it out now. I am interested in this Rp, though I'm not sure what type of powers I want him to have. He might be a villain cause yunno, All men must die
