By 2020, many of the heroic old guard and many other heroic organizations around the world had found themselves coming face to face with a new generation of people with powers that had popped up lately. Many new heroes, as well as many new villains, were beginning to surface, all at a rate previously unseen in the history of the superhuman scene, perhaps even the history of the world. Doctor Mentality, who was among these new heroes, realized that the current heroes could not be around forever, nor could they be everywhere at once.
To address this, he called some other heroes who he had acquainted with, including the Igbo deity Amadioha (who had fused with the body of a mortal anthropologist), Lady Gallant (a female knight revived in modern times), PIT-built, government-sponsored combat robot-turned-hero Protectoid, teenaged female wrestler Luchadora, teenaged cryokinetic hero Night Frost, as well as Commander Robert Smith, to gather as many heroic superbeings as possible, from all corners of time and space, in an effort that transcends race, nationality, and religion.
The coalition's objective: to face down superhuman threats that are already proving to be stronger, faster, smarter, more vicious, more twisted, and more dangerous than the previous generation and train the next generation of superpowered vigilantes in an organized effort, as well as act as a force for social change instead of merely protecting the status quo. From the meta-supremacist extremism of D.R.A.G.O.N., to Ten Gallon's corrupt oil corporation, to Lord Blackwright's sorcerous extradimensional forces, to the Great Elder's savage Bloody Maw werewolf pack, to the malevolent cyborg-turned-AI Circuitry, to the global mob dealings of the Diamante Syndicate, to the human-supremacist, imperialist rogue nation of the Hive Principality, to the amorphic, biological horrors of King Aberrus's hordes, to Empress Eterna's alien empire, to Urthumiel's demonic minions, and many, many more threats out there, Nex.U.S. is preparing tomorrow's heroes to make whatever sacrifices it takes to protect those who can't protect themselves... even the ultimate one.
OOCly, this is an RP-based SG based around longer, more dramatic myth arc-based stories with the occasional crises. I tried telling this story the way I envisioned in Champions Online RP, with... little success, sadly. Some of my CO friends encouraged me to found my own SG in order to take the story in the places I wanted it to go, so that's what I am doing here.
The main tone I wanted to go for is a Bronze/Modern Age kind of feel (leaning on Modern Age), and while plenty of it's traditional superhero fare, the majority of the larger story arcs will oftentimes be dealing in some mature, even dark themes and subject matter. However, before each mission, I will place trigger warnings so people can know what to expect.
Think The Authority mixed with Justice League Unlimited, X-Men, PS238, Worm, as well as elements from Mobile Suit Gundam and you have the general gist.
