I just came up with a cool idea, starting from my superhero I've created named Darkblade. What if the superheroes of the Dark Age of Comics, such as early Image, were time-displaced and ended up in the present where they're seen with contempt as a regrettable part of superhero culture? Then they have to adapt to the modern world, which is easier said than done.
That idea is in the form of Strike Force, a Youngblood-inspired team who were government-sanctioned superheroes. They were celebrities that had merchandise and appeared on talk shows, popular with younger male crowds who thought that the idealistic superhero was "lame". Also, they killed enemies and villains indiscriminately, and acted edgy and gritty. Then in 1994 they go on a covert mission to take down a villain named Dr. Wicked, who was building a secret weapon. When they were about to kill him, he unleashed it on the Strike Force and sent them into a vortex where nothing made sense. But it only lasted 24 minutes before they were free. However, each minute represented a real world year, and they reappeared in 2018.
As mentioned, my character is Darkblade. He was the leader, a gun and sword wielding psionic with a rough childhood. Anyone here interested in this idea, with a strong reality subtext of a "dark" '90s superhero team being shunned by the public, and having to improve themselves? I thought it'd be neat.
