When @impurestcheese announced the death of Marvel Mayhem, it made me think. At first I shrugged it off but as I lay in my bed at night I had a different mindset. I wanted to dedicate this contest to Marvel Mayhem and its creators/contributors. However, I had a few problems doing so. The word that stood in my mind was appreciation but I couldn't develop my idea. Personally I appreciated the exposure it gave me as a writer. But how would one show appreciation to the group, I thought. They could with a story-- or a character. But unfortunately I couldn't generate the right idea.
The aim of this contest is to create an original superhero/villain, they can be anything: mutant, alien, superhuman etc. However, their story will be an introduction to the world, kind of like coming out in a way. This should be more like a character study, dealing with things like what motivated them or their resentments if any. It is also set in a universe very similar/identical to Marvel Mayhem (what a coincidence!). You can even make references to the characters existing in the Mayhem universe if you like.
- The word limit should be 1,500 words.
- Deadline is 16/9/2014 at 11:59pm UK time
Oh and RIP Marvel Mayhem.
