| Plot! We got it!
||[Nov. 19th, 2008|10:01 pm]
Hey folks. I've set about making updates and the first was the list of threads. The old list can now be found here: ye olde threads. The next step would simply be to update all of the information pertaining to the plot. Well, we need to settle on a plot. So I'm gonna run some things by you guys and see where we get. I wanna get posting again ASAP, as I'm sure you all do as well.
First off - there are Magneto and Shaw to consider. I think they should be paired up, since Magneto wouldn't have his mutation back yet. He would go to another powerful man with his ideals to at least have a safe haven while he gain back his 'strength'. And Shaw wouldn't put Magneto down - he has loads of information, experience and is a powerful mutant, when all is said and done. So! That in mind, I would like to think that Magneto would suggest to Shaw that Genosha be utilized for further Sentinel testing/enhancement - and that his band of Morlocks/Brotherhood that remains (from the Cure/Alcatraz battle) be used as guinea pigs. The sewers would be wiped (by whatever means) and the homeless, rogue mutants would be transported to the island and fend for themselves against Shaw's prototypes. Bwahaha. However, as I'd written it into his profile, after Callisto's death (as well as with another group), Toad became powerful amongst the Morlocks and is recognized currently as their leader. He has it out for Magneto. Shaw's men would strike when Toad and a few others were out of the picture, which would leave them helpless in assisting their 'kidnapped' brothers. Desperate, I would have Toad go to the X-Men for assistance.
And just as Shaw and Magneto assume, the X-Men would be called in and Shaw/Arcade would have super powerful, pick-of-the-litter mutants for the Sentinels to battle. Whether or not the X-Men went to Genosha, they would still have a worthwhile project on their hands.
At the same time (or any other time, really), we could do something with the Savage Land. As Matt suggested, it could be a sort of LOST/Survivor situation (with Jurassic Park, to boot!). However, I feel that this piece of plot would have to be limited or all-encompassing. I find it difficult to think of a reason why any decent-sized group of X-Men would get trapped and still retain use of their mutations. There could be plenty of reasons for them to go there, of course. Also, it wouldn't be very logical to put the whole cast of characters there, either (however fun watching Emma swat giant mosquitoes away would be). So, I think if enough of us are interested in this little tidbit, we can put a movieverse version of the Savage Land in concrete and get a group and mission together to go there.
For the record, the government, Shaw, Magneto, Arcade and whomever else could/should be involved with/responsible for any of these things.
As for Xavier's - I think the man himself should remain comatose in his brother's body. At least for a while, or until after the Jeanix crap settles. Since Magneto is weak, I'd like the scales to be even. Those two are a matched set, eh? So the school would be in Storm's charge. Leigh and I would write in Jean and Scott's returns as the story progressed, with Jean being first. If anyone has any preference for Beast, let me know now. He can either decline the President's offer and come back to the school or remain active with the government. I'll be NPCing him either way! :) If he were away, I think he would return during the Jeanix situation, no matter how long he actually stays.
For the Brotherhood, Toad isn't with them. We do not have a Mystique, and she hates Magneto post-X3 anyway. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were not mentioned in the films, so they can do whatever they'd like. Perhaps Magneto can contact them and invite them to join him with Shaw? Could do pretty much anything they'd like. You can say they met him and decided to do something different from his vision, or they've never met him... anything. Up to you. I'll go along with whatever.
Let me know what you guys think and if anyone has any ideas different from or elaborating on what's here, please comment! I want the plot to have contributions from everyone so we can all be doing things we're interested in. Thanks guys for the patience and the feedback. You roolz me.
P.S. PLEASE THINK ABOUT PICKING UP A HELLFIRE CLUBBER! I've updated their page and I'm including classic members that have been involved in the past X-Verse (Iron Man, Hob/New Goblin, Warren Worthington III, the Braddocks, etc). See here: Hellfire Club.
P.S.S. As per our timeline for the films, we'll now be set back in 2007, unless someone would prefer we set time forward - ie; 2010, which would mean Liberty Island (X-Men 1) took place in 2008 or so.
