So,you imagine yourself living a life in a comic world,ok,….
So let’s start of with Mutants.Yep it could be one fifth of the population maybe one tenth, no one can be quite sure of the numbers.So you could have been born a mutant,which is awesome,maybe.You could have been born with these awesome powers.So it’s awesome, kinda,but you gotta realize some people are going to hate you just because your a mutant.Also there is a possibility that your powers could make you blue or green,and there is no doubt that you’ll have to have help in learning how to control them.You could have a had a hard time, but maybe you’ll find your perfect balance and hide who you are from the rest of the world.Or maybe you join the X-Men,or maybe you’ll be kidnapped by the government for experiments ,who’s to say. On the other hand you can be a regular human with no powers,the dangerous thing is,there are mutants who hate you, and think your lesser because your not a mutant.Some of them have been hurt so by humans that they feel this way.Others just see you as less just because.
Oh yeah don’t forget about all those Norse Gods who just have to cross a bridge to get into this realm….
The dangers of being a scientist
So being a scientist is a great professional,it can often be something that cause your to get powers.Such as the Sue and Richard Storm, and Bruce Banner.But here’s a warning if you are a scientist I would recommend you to stay out of New York.There is this kid, name Peter… Peter… Peter something.But almost all the scientist he meet become super villains Morbius,Dr.Oct,the Lizard are examples of unlucky scientist who have met this photographer.
The Vampire Infestation.
Oh most people forget that Blade is a Marvel character.This Englishman has been hunting vampires since ’73.Oh yeah, Blades British kinda ruins the whole Wesley Snipes thing doesn’t it.So yeah there was even a Dracula in this universe at one time.And no one is safe from vampires.Even a mutant can be turned, Jubilee is now currently a vampire.So let’s just hope their are many organizations of vampire hunters.
OK, Aliens are the one thing I am a little DC biased on.I think most of theirs tend to a little more interesting.Let’s see we have the Emperial Guard(who forced the hand of our X-Men and ultimately let to the Phoenix’s suicide),Guardians of the Galaxy(I know nothing of these people) among others.To be honest I don’t know a lot about the aliens of the Marvel universe (just the basics),but be aware that they’re there.But there are two beings you should be aware that’s Norman Rad, aka the Silver Surfer.One of my favorite anti hero /super heros yet.And then there’s his master,Galactus.A lot of people like to downplay him and the Phoenix, and how powerful they are.I put them in the same category because they are mass murders who like to consume over-sized things.The Phoenix ate a star and by doing so destroyed a whole solar systems.Galactus has ate enough planets to fill up multiple solar systems.And unlike the phoenix(though she killed herself) Galactus has been defeated but never been killed(to my knowledge.Oh yeah lets not forget the Skrulls, who secretly keep trying to overtake the earth.Those shape shifters can be quite annoying.But we do have the Watchers on our side to warn us of bad things to come from space…. yay ? Oh yeah there’s also a whole race of alien symbiots, which are parasites who can fuse with a human, bond with a human at a cellular level, and make them do things so they can feed of of their adrenaline of the host.The two examples of these are the Venom and Carnage.
Toxic Waste,Gamma Rays,and Radioactive Spiders
For some reason in this world things that would normally kill you, can make you a hero.For some reason there are just multiple radioactive spiders.I mean there are currently two Spider Mans ,Peter Parker and Miles Morales, not to mention Spider Woman,Spider Girl and Web Woman.And the clone of Peter Parker out their aka Spider Boy.Toxic waste and gamma rays give people such as Bruce Banner and Matt Murdock their powers.So there a good chance that one day when your walking down the street you might be dosed with something that could give you powers.Or as said before being a scientist I feel as if you have a 1/10 chance of being a super hero.
Anyone can be a hero
The lovely thing is, if you have a skill and are the best at what you do, you can easily done a mask and become a hero.Some heroes in this universe have even built machines to give them the abilities,such as Tony Stark ,or just so skillful that they make it without this kind of cash like Hawkeye.You might die,but maybe not.And if you’re bright and are a good enough agent, you could even be recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. as spies.I mean you may not know this but Peter’s parents were agents of S.H.I.E.L.D .Hired by Nick Furry and died after being discovered.BOOM
There’s a lot more maybe I’ll make a part two some day
