Superhero Worldbuilding

The basic steps of this game are straightforward. You create a character and lore around them. And that lore becomes part of the world. You are allowed to connect your characters backstory with any other previous characters made in this thread as long as it doesn't contradict there sheet. (in fact it's encouraged, helps makes the world feel connected).

Only two things are established in this universe at the start, This is about a superhero world (you are allowed to make people who are not superheroes, Just remember they live in a superhero world) and the action mainly takes place on Earth (although there's nothing wrong with going a little bit more sci-fi with some characters.)
