    I have a membership at Plot Storming, but the last time I was over there I didn't see anything in the genres that I'm interested in. Please post a link to your stuff once you get it up over there though and I will certainly check it out.

    I took #1 ... I've always found the attraction of comics and superhero's comes from the fact that this "could" be the world we live in kinda view.... Supers are really what we want to be deep down inside... who wouldn't want Powers like Magneto or to be Tony Stark, billionaire (oh.. and I guess Ironman is a bonus ) how many relate to the Dark Knight .... a vigilante crime fighter who runs around and says "I'm Batman" ... so real world settings merely make this surreal world a bit more like..."Hey ... it could happen... " ...

    I dunno... maybe I'm way off.. but that's my vote

    ** oh... and the coolest power of all... The ability to see the weakness in anything ...a plan, a building, a person .... (Inhumans rock)

    I've always pictured Gotham City to something like Seattle ... I dunno why ... maybe the grunge scene back around 92-93 with Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam that did it for me... Or ... Chicago would work for me as well.... and Detroit .... todays detroit... that could be a batman begins gotham.... easily.... especially after Arkam's Inmates escaped...

    Both Gotham and Metropolis get equated to a lot of different cities but the basic beginning was Gotham was New York (Manhattan) and Metropolis was Chicago but its skyline was Toronto. Of course per standard DC modus operandi both of these have changed several times over the years and even moved around.

    I've heard Metropolis described as New York during the day and Gotham is New York at night. I have always been a sucker for DC's fictional cities. Opal City in Starman. Star City in Green Arrow. Central City in the Flash. Gotham in Batman. If done right, the city becomes a character in its own right.

    I voted other because I usually like a combination of 1 & 2. Real world analog but with fictional elements. Basically a mix of both and not a one or the other situation. Alternate realities can be fun also. I once started work on an alternate WWII Supers universe where the first Supers team was created by the Nazis and the Allies were forced to stop them (first a Commonwealth team and later the Americans would join the war effort).
    Cheers,

    Captain America ROCKS!!!! .. I can't wait for that film to get here .... only 3 more years!!! .... I wonder who they will get to play Steve Rogers ... If John Cena is cast I will have to assassinate him so he doesn't completely ruin the character.... and if Matt Damon gets it I'll know that there truly isn't any justice in this world ....

    Any of the good actors I wold have picked are getting too old for the role ...

    But Incredible Hulk features the super soldier serum .... (hence Red Hulk Roth)

    Hey ... maybe they'll give the roll to Shia La Bouf ... lol...

    I read the first few when they came out and just couldn't get enough. (like the extended card metaphor.... Jokers, etc.)
