User:Bill/Age of Apocalypse
Marvel Comics' Age of Apocalypse limited series was published in 1995 and explored what might have happened if Charles Xavier had been killed before the formation of the X-Men. It was a phenomenally brutal series where fan favorites and signature characters were snuffed out at unexpected moments. The series was recently reprinted in a four volume graphic novel format, inspiring me to play out stories set on this backdrop. I was also looking for an excuse to use Wild Talents, and its gritty mechanics make for a very good fit.
Because I am running this game in a fairly episodic manner, but still want to follow story arcs I've elected to have the players use multiple characters. When they are not all present we switch to a flashback featuring one of the main characters and the remainder of the players using alternates. Occasionally we have used a completely alternate cast of characters.
Hiatus Bonus Score: +3(Note: Most of these characters were one shots, created to get a better understanding of rules, not as serious character developments. But enjoy, I did.)
