    “People make mistakes in life through believing too much,
    but they have a damned dull time if they believe too little.”
    James Hilton, Lost Horizon
It has been almost one full year since the Chitauri attacked Manhattan, and the world is not ready to soon forget the tragedy that occurred. While the world always needed heroes, it was the first time that all of mankind felt the effects of some large invading force, not from within between themselves, but from without beyond the stars. Since then, the heroes of the world have really upped their game to keep humanity safe, but so, too, have the villains.

A rebel sect of Atlantian warriors recently attached New York City, and the memory of the Chitauri attack has opened the barely healed wound to bleed again. The people are frightened, and they want to know what can be done to keep them safe. In light of this recent tragedy, an organization known as the Hellfire Club, a group of wealthy, powerful, and worldly individuals, have opened their arms in a sign of charity and goodwill, with most of the world completely ignorant to the dark past that the Club hides, and the dark roots that it still spreads in the world.

Further degrading the public’s respect of the government as a whole, the recent discovery of HYDRA plants within the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division of the military, otherwise known as S.H.I.E.L.D. HYDRA nearly succeeded in their plans to rule by fear and domination, using S.H.I.E.L.D. resources to do so until it was almost too late. In light of the events, S.H.I.E.L.D. has attempted to remain strong in the face of these weeds, though distrust within might have weakened a foundation that took decades to build.

While many of these whispers from beyond have been subtle and foreign, the name of Thanos is impossible to ignore. Whoever or whatever this being is, it’s main motivation appears to be to simply rule, and rule everything. It seems that this Eternal has turned his eyes towards Earth, but how long has he been manipulating those already there to work his will? How many alliances are already planted? And is the Earth prepared to fend off such a force, or will the chaos upon be too much to withstand Thanos’ forces?

The world is hanging on the edge. Alliances are being questions. Old and new players have entered the field, and it is becoming difficult to see the way ahead. The horizons are darkened by an oncoming storm, and the way may be lost for good if they cannot find the way. Who will be the candle in the darkness, and who will be the western wind to snuff it?

|| Continuity Notes ||

CONTINUITY NOTES:
This board is a Marvel Cinematic Universe and comic Earth-616 adjacent AU. Applications and histories are allowed to draw from all alternate universes within Marvel canon, but the overall history and timeline of the boards will use the MCU and 616 canon as its base.

EARTH-616 CANON:

    This is a pre-Civil War board. The events of that arc have not happened, though they are possibly on the very near horizons. Consider current events to be the twilight before the dawn of the Civil War. Whether or not those events will happen exactly as they do in 616 canon has yet to be determined…

MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE CANON:
The events of all MCU related movies have occurred with no alteration say for the following:

    Captain America 2: The Winter Solider: While HYDRA operatives have been exposed within SHIELD, the entirety of SHIELD itself has not been disbanded. It is widely thought that 90% of the plants within the organization have been weeded out, but no one can say for certain. HYDRA is definitely still at large.

    Guardians of the Galaxy: The events of this movie will be the establish canon for GotG. We will be accepting applications for other characters in the Guardians featured in the comics, they must fit in with the movie canon, instead of the established comic canon. Aspects of the comic canon may be included, but the storyline follows the scope of the movies. No original Guardian characters will be accepted.

    Marvel: Agents of SHIELD (Television): When HYDRA revealed itself within the SHIELD organization, Phil Coulson’s team was still in its infancy. There was no reason, as of yet, for various superior officers or, more importantly, Grant Ward to reveal themselves yet, especially with this new round of recruits looking so promising. Treat all AoS characters as if they are still within the first two or three episodes of the series.

    Spider-Man Movie Franchise: Please attempt to default to comic canon and/or the new reboot of this franchise.

    Thor 2: The Dark World: The events of this movie have not yet occurred.

    X-Men Movie Franchise: Please attempt to default to comic canon for all X-Men characters within the movie franchise.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to message a staff member. We are eager to see what can be done with all of these amazing characters! Thank you!
