I wanted to gauge the interests of the forum for a concept like this. Would anyone be interested in a "Heroes for Hire" type team where a group of street level heroes (badass normals or low-powered supers) form a special tight-knit team to take on the criminal underworld for money? This could be set in the southern area of Titan City, which is decidedly more grounded and nasty compared to the north. Such a setting lends itself well to darker storytelling, maybe the kind where they take on drug dealers and human traffickers of that sort.
I do have a character to contribute: Stephanie Yin.
She's a martial arts heroine who draws upon chi energy to enhance her attacks, shoot chi blasts, and give her enhanced durability or mobility. Gives her an advantage but is nothing too overpowered, and she relies mainly on her fighting skills. The power set obviously takes inspiration from Iron Fist, though the character and her backstory is quite different.
If anyone wants to join, let me know and share what kind of hero you have. Just remember, this is street level warfare -- where characters of decidedly low power have to use their wits and skill as much as their powers, if they have actual powers that is. Please don't bring a Superman to an alley brawl. Also, this being a darker setting with our heroes getting paychecks, we might want to avoid the "Paragon" type hero as it's not a good tonal fit.
What do you think?
