Types of Characters
There are five categories of characters. Each category has particular attributes related to it, such as activity requirements. Activity levels for the categories can be found in more detail at +news Activity.
Major Feature Characters (MFC)
- Major characters are defined by being particularly popular and well known examples of comic book characters. They require Roleplay more often, and are held in the most strict terms to staying true to their roles. MFC characters are leaders of the game, and with great power comes great responsibility! These roles are very important to the story and immersion, and should only be taken by those up to this challenge.
A player may own two MFCs total, unless both are extremely important and critical characters; staff discretion may apply (see +news Alternate Characters.) Character Examples: Superman, Captain America, Deadpool
- Feature Characters (FC)
- Villain Feature Characters (VFC)
Villain characters include any character that is primarily known for their nefarious deeds or plots. These characters tend to lose at the end of the day, and players that take on Villain roles must seek to enjoy the journey to rather inevitable failure! Character Examples: Lex Luthor, Mister Sinister, Two-Face
- Original Characters (OC)
Original characters are characters that you, the player, have invented! They have their own set of boons and drawbacks, which can be found in detail at +news Original Character. Character Examples: N/A
- Ally Feature Characters (AFC)
Ally Feature characters are defined as characters that, like FCs, come from comic and media sources, but they lack powers or superhuman abilities. This group usually involves general people just trying to live their lives in a world of superheroes and villains. Applications for these characters are the most minimal and easiest to complete, and like OC and VFC, have the lowest activity requirements. Agents like Melinda May with the resources of groups like SHIELD are FCs, while analysts like Fitz-Simmons are considered AFCs. Character Examples: Lois Lane, Aunt May, Alfred Pennyworth
