I tell you, Batman might not be an alien with superpowers. But at least he pays attention when it is needed. Now I'd suggest you should either find those hostages or watch me all night.
I'll take care of that. *finds the hostages' location from Two-Face's head*
Have fun with Dent, Clark.

Funny that you would show up. But I sort of anticipated your arrival too. But I do counter mind reading you say? Easy, I don't even know where the hostages are.

Same here. We can work this out, I'm sure. Batman seems to exist side by side with other super heroes. Why can we do? It'd suck if Glides or I did the "WE'LL DO EVERYTHING BECAUSE WE'RE ALL-POWERFUL" thing, but I don't think that's happened. Can't we all just get along and get the plot going in a fun way?

:(

Alright I'll put forth one point: Half the time it would just end up with the super duper guys just trying to out whack the other guy with strength. Reminds me of Dragon Ball. And, the Al Ghul's can't face up against those super guys one on one, they're not that good. Just at the peak of human perfection in skill and knowledge and with the aid of the Lazarus pits, immortal. Not the same in any way to actually being immortal and being able to punch through a building.

But with that said, I'm fine with things continuing the way they are as long as the super guys take batman takes the lead. Getting Harvey was just too easy.

Indeed, not easy to be a Batman villain when you got both Superman and Martian manhunter on your ass.

I could for option one or two.

* Progressively, more and more buildings begin to be converted into congregation areas for those who who see as has to come, the screens around the city blink on once more, showing the Al Ghuls and The Riddler sitting along a table, as the screens come into focus, The Riddler takes his position*

Now that the attentions have been drawn, I've finally had the chance to organize something I've been dying to do since I got here, and the Al Ghuls would be delighted to join me. You may join us too, if you can answer me this!

What is the term used for the activity in which an organisation solicits politicians in order influence government?

Now, hold that tongue of yours, or I will.

I can answer that, but I, at least, would rather not do anything until some sort of a decision is reached.

I'm up for any of the options. This is my favorite thread on Newgrounds as of right now, and it's cool being weird for a change. Advantages and disadvantages are there for all three options, so whatever you end up agreeing on, I'm in.
Personally i think we're pretty evenly matched. Me and ZJ (and now Spretznaz?) are very strong, but at the same time, we haven't been able to permanently defeat any of you.
For example: I captured Two-Face, who was then freed because he had hostages as leverage. So now me and him are on equal footing again. Me and Marvel caught the Al Ghuls, who soon freed themselves from Arkham.
My personal favorite part of the thread so far was that completely random heroes-and-villains party, that was pretty hysterical. Option 2 would be good in that case, since it was more about zany hijinks than anything else.
As for Option 1, I have no idea what other character I would be, personally. Also, some of the people have stopped posting or switched characters (E-Lord from Lex Luthor to Batman, Spretznaz from Deathstroke to Martian Manhunter). So if we end up choosing that one, we need to figure out which characters are still available and which characters are still around. From a brief once-over of the last couple pages, I saw:

Superman (me), Captain Marvel, Batman, Batgirl, Riddler, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn (no Joker though, weird), Ra's Al Ghul, Talia Al Ghul, Mister Freeze, Martian Manhunter, Two-Face and Catwoman.

Joker, Deadshot, Commissioner Gordon and Plastic Man have stopped posting.
I think we need more people for this thread to be more interesting. That may be where a lot of the complaints are coming from, there's only a few of us around at a time, so naturally the same people end up interacting.
Tons of interesting characters out there, still. I liked having Lex Luthor around, and the temporary Deathstroke-Superman alliance was interesting. But there's also the rest of the Justice League and tons of other DC characters to choose from.
Another weird idea I just thought of: we should start a thread like this one for Marvel characters. Having both worlds to play with would be pretty cool, what do you all think?

-out of character-

I like option 2. I like seeing DC universe interactions that don't limit themselves to the Batman universe.
And while I'm out of character here, I'd like to add that I recently saw The Dark Knight Returns pt. 2. Not as brutal as the climactic fight of part 1, but brutal nonetheless.

Counting what everyone so far said, it looks like we have:

Option Bat Family: e-lord, Confucianism

Option DC Universe: Spretznaz, ZJ, Hybrid-of-Souls

Option Either of the above works: Mismo, Glides, Heretic-Anchorite

Option Don't Change a Fucking Thing: Shade

I'm just posting this for reference, I won't make any more comments on this till everyone has their say.

Originally, I had option 2 in mind when I wrote the OP actually - the more humanity the better.

If we decide to limit the crew to DC characters aside from all-powerful heroes, how many people would have a problem with their character changing? The main reason I didn't want to exclude the majority of Marvel characters is because not all of the heroes in it are "trump cards" (like Ironman).

Maybe we could reformat the character selection so that each person with actual powers is required to have a realistic weakness? Riddler puzzle-solving so far seems to be the most entertaining for everyone, and minor villains/heroes can be included in a creative way.

Just have fun for everyone :) don't immediately solve the problem if dragging it out could be more dramatic!

Also, don't feel as if the heroes have to succeed at everything!

Basically:

Option 1 - Batman Universe
pro: Most balanced in heroes/villains
con: Too small to accept everyone who wants to join the crew

Option 2 - DC Universe
pro: Large enough to accept new members, yet still balanced
con: Will inevitably lead to more vague characters

Option 3 - DC & Marvel
pro: Most people who join will have a well-known character.
con: Heroes become overpowered and lead to short, choppy plots.

So I vote for the DC Universe, and new members will just have to find less popular characters as the crew grows. Maybe we should also put it to a vote if someone wants a Marvel character?

Marvel and DC crossovers aren't unheard of in the Comic world. Spiderman and Superman had an issue together. I'm also pretty sure the Avengers Dukes it out with the JLA once or twice.

Yeah, that's why I kinda want to include some of them :( I don't think all of them are trump-cards. But that's why I think if we go with Option 2, we should say that if someone really really really wants to be a marvel character, we put it to a vote or something.

I'm still in support for making a separate thread for the Marvel characters if anyone wants to do that. Trouble is, I have no idea how to make the sigs. What we could do is create a sig with our DC character on the left and the Marvel one on the right, and have our profile picture as whatever we want. Fulfills Options 2 and 3 at the same time, kind of.

The problem with that is I don't think there's enough interest for two entire threads. When you think about it, there's only like 10 or so active people in just this one, so where would we find enough people to start a second one?

What do you guys think?

See, the problem with trump-cards on both sides is the lesser heroes/villains have no real significance. Most of us would just be watching the fireworks lol
