Super Group The 52

I tried to start this group in CoH but didn't get too many. Not to be confused by DC comics, this group's members would all be named after playing cards. It left the hero open to powers and costume design with exception to the red or black and white color scheme and of course the suit logo. This would also have limited membership of 52 or maybe 53 if you add the joker card.

That sounds like an

That sounds like an interesting concept. You could even keep it to yourself and make 52 alts! Each one styled after its own playing card! You could even have certain common traits to all the hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades. There are a lot places you could take this.


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

I had a number of characters

I had a number of characters with the last group (Ace of Spades, 2 of Diamonds, Joker 53, Jack of Clubs). I wanted to have the patrolling as a group available so would want to open it to others.

I'm thinking someone who's

I'm thinking someone who's more of a black ops type of character, it would make more sense for him to be one because the group is called the 52 making him an unlisted member kind of... and the joker in the deck is meant to be the wild card, kind of like how an espionage type of character can throw a monkey wrench into the enemy's plans without them even realizing

Although I have to ask...

Although I have to ask... what's our theme other cards? Are we like a high tech military sort of deal, or are we like a street gang? Personally I vote for the latter..

I wasn't so much into making

I wasn't so much into making them all a certain type. I wanted the creators to have some freedom. For instance Ace of Spades was a darkness controller, My 2 of Diamonds was an archer with illusion powers. Jack of Clubs wielded double short swords. My Joker was a tanker with a giant club. I really thought as long as the group had the color theme and the heart club diamond or spade logo it would look great as we patrolled. Instead of stealing the name The 52 how about stealing House of Cards instead?

REZ!

REZ!

*ahem* I have had various concepts involving cards. I like this idea. How about for the name, we call it, House of the 52?

That is a good compromise

That is a good compromise without taking an already used name.

I could easily contribute to the SG, as well. Heck, with 53 members, you'd prolly get to play just about anything.

That is how I intended it

That is how I intended it back in the day. Just wanted people to follow the red/white black/white color scheme and have the card suit emblem but powers were pretty open.
