Samus Aran, Simon Belmont, Carmen Sandiego, Dirk the Daring, Edward Kenway, Fox McCloud, Ganon, Heihachi Mishima, Index Librorum Prohibitorum, Jack series, Kazuya Mishima, Link, Master Hand, Nemesis, Ogre, Pelagia, Quadratus, Ryu Hayabusa, Sephiroth, Shang Tsung, Ulthane, Vivi Ornitier, W, X, Y, Z

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
War! War has united the various realms of video game. Or, to be more precise, invasion. A long-dormant force has reawakened, discovered a source of unexpected power and began consolidating their power base. Many empires have joined the invaders or been crushed beneath their heels. The surviving heroes have united, preparing to launch an all-out assault againt the invaders, using both magic & technology to exploit a small but vital flaw in their stronghold.

Knowing the dangers of magic and resurrection, the invaders have found a realm without magic, which they use as a prison world. They brainwash and hide the captives away on this world, along with guards to keep an eye on them. Most are well-hidden in Earth and can not be found to be reawakened. Others know who they are but do not want to leave their new life. Others still have found something worth fighting for, become a better person, or simply want to return to their old lives. But, either way, they're willing to fight the invaders.

And the guards, although working with the invaders, certainly have their own hidden agendas (which probably led to them getting "awarded" with this station). The lack of oversight and the feeling of abandonment they all seem to share only adds fuel to this fire.

But the invaders don't know that, as more magic enters the realm, the brainwashing is fading for a select few (most of them were placed into alternate identities that mirror their "real selves" in some aspect, so that they would readily buy into their new life) and objects of power are being drawn into the world.

(So it's like "Fabletown"/"Once Upon A Time" on Earth and "Ready, Player One" in the world of video game, with a little "Neverending Story" thrown in.)

Samus Aran, Simon Belmont, Dirk the Daring, Edward Kenway, Ryu Hayabusa

The Great Rebellion

Fox McCloud, Index Librorum Prohibitorum, Link , Ulthane, Vivi Ornitier

The Evil Empire

Ganon, Master Hand, Nemesis, Ogre, Pelagia, Quadratus

Mishima Zaibatsu Corp.

Image
Image
Image

Image
Image

Carmen Santiago (more of a free agent), Heihachi Mishima, Jack series, Kazuya Mishima, Sephiroth, Shang Tsung


Samus is a bounty hunter on Earth. But we'd get to see scenes of her in her armor (flashbacks, off world action down the line, etc) at some point.
Simon would be a monster hunter, pretty much like Dean Winchester
Carmen Santiago? Think Sherlock's take on Irene Adler. C.C. Rendozo from Wildcats 3.0. Zoe & Root from Person of Interest. Or, y'know, Carmen Santiago. 8)
As for Dirk the Daring... you remember how, in the cartoon, he could see all of the different options in front of him? Maybe he's got his own limited "Sherlock Scan"or whatnot...
Fox McCloud's my Top Gun, my Luke Skywalker piloting an X-Wing, shooting down the Death Star or Han swooping in at the last minute.
Ganon's tower would be full of artifacts/obstacles from other, familiar games, like the Fire Swords, spikes, deadly fog (which I THOUGHT I could use as my "F" pick), etc.
Imagine the Mishima Zaibatsu Corp. as "Wolfram & Hart" (the evil law firm from Angel) and Heihachi's the current CEO.
Index is basically The Archive (from The Dresden Files), with 103,000 grimores in her head.
Jacks are pretty much T-1000 series Terminators (the Arnold Schwarzenegger model), but Russian.
Kazuya's basically Smallville's Lex Luthor, but with the Devil Gene.
Link's the epic, optimistic hero. Like Luke fighting Darth Vader or Frodo & Sam in LotR.
Master Hand's the source of Ganon's newborn power. Ganon uses him like a puppet on a string... or is it the other way around?
Nemesis (from Resident Evil) is one of Ganon's protectors in his tower. And he carries a giant rocket launcher.
Pelagia and Quadratus are the two Colossi guarding Ganon's tower.
I'd like to give Ryu a backstory with the Mishima Corporation. He's still a good guy, but he did some things for them. It started by them helping him find and hunt down his father's killer (and one of their competitors) and then some other jobs for them but left when they tried making him do something he knew was wrong. Now there's a personal grudge there...
Sephiroth is the "Vampire Eric" of my story.
Shang Tsung is a crime lord whose empire was absorbed by the Mishima Corporation. I'm picturing a pretty epic backstory with him & Ryu.
Remember "The Worthy" from the otherwise-forgettable "Fear Itself"? How the Asgardian elves made magical uru armor for some of the heroes? I could see my blacksmith strengthening some magical weapons (rebuilding Link's Master Sword, perhaps) or giving others a magical power-up (Samus, maybe)? He's big but he's not all that social...
I know I have Index already, but I wanted a second magician. Just because the Archive is around doesn't mean there's no place for Harry Dresden, y'know?

The speak with their fists, and put ideas in your head thru the cracks they make in your skull, they are:

Brute Force

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Rhino, Ulik, Abomination, Blockbuster, Juggernaut, Mammoth

This non-team of rotating members are not brought together for some deep cause, or do what they do for some guilt fueled promise to a dead relative. They fight the good fight and go on their adventures for exploration, for scientific discoveries, and for excitement. They are:

The Adventurers Guild

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Tom Strong, Vigilante (JLU version), Wesley Dodds, Yukon Jack, Cliffe Steel, Doctor Occult, HERBIE, Ka-Zar

Thunderball was once one if the primo tough guys in town along with his other Wrecking Crew cohorts, but as of late they've just become jobbers being beaten by everyone. So Thuderball here came up with anew plan (he is a Mensa level genius after all). He knows teams nowadays cannot survive one raw strength alone (sorry Brute Force), because the teams they are up against have a large range if powers and abilities. So TB here is going to draft a team, of other team players, to make the perfect team to go against anyone. He will piece together random facets to make a beautiful image of chaotic destruction. They are:

KILLeidoscope

Drafted from the New Olypians: Nox
Drafted from Squadron Sinister: Dr. Spectrum
Drafted from the Fearsome Five: Psimon
Drafted from the Marauders: Riptide

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Thunderball, X-ray, Zaran, Electro, Puff Adder (Gordon Fraley), Geo-mancer, Impluse, Lashina, Nox, Kinji Obatu (Doc Spectrum), Psimon, Riptide (Janos Quested)

I personally wouldn't mind continuing this draft but working backwards creating teams to oppose the teams we created for this draft. Like you would start with the same letter that you started with last draft but you will go backwards in the alphabet, example I start with C so my next pick would be B, then A, then Z, etc so on and so forth. I created all heroes team this time so next I would have to create all villains teams. It would be quiet the challenge having so many characters already of the board but I think it would be fun too.

The All-New Guild of Calamitous Intent

The world's premiere union for licensed super-villainy, the Guild of Calamitous Intent provides security and benefits through organized arching.

ImageImageImageImageImage

M - The Monarch, N - Duke Nukem, S - Dr. Mrs. The Monarch (Sheila), B - Other Barry, D - Dr. Dinosaur

W.E.I.R.D. (World's Extraordinary Intelligence and Reconnaissance Department)

Originally organized to gather intelligence on the Guild of Calamitous Intent and other such nefarious organizations, the Agents of W.E.I.R.D. soon found themselves drafted into something far more sinister.

ImageImageImageImageImage

O - Obadiah Archer, R - Atomic Robo, T - Tony Chu, W - Atom Eve (Samantha Wilkins), F - The Futurist (Duncan Jones)

The Machine Empire

Deep within the heart of the Andromeda Galaxy, in the distant future, Queen Promethium rules over her vast mechanized empire. However, constant resistance from organic life has left that empire in turmoil. Hope for the future of all machines arrives when a lone droid delivers the lifeless remains of a once mighty A.I. to the Queen's feet. It's programming corrupted by it's traitorous creator and badly damaged from a millennium of neglect, Ultron is a shell of it's former glory. Craving nothing but revenge, Ultron joins forces with the Machine Empire as they seek to forcefully mechanize all life in the universe starting with the future and working their way back through time.

Still deeply embedded within it's programming, Ultron contains the assimilation technology of the Phalanx. Using this coding to her advantage, Queen Promethium captures the sentient probe V'Ger and transforms it into the vessel that she will use to strike back against all organics in the universe
.

ImageImageImageImageImage

Q - Queen Promethium, U - Ultron, V - V'Ger, X - T-X, G - Gort

The Grand Resistance

Men and women from all across time and space, brought together to unite the galaxy against the unmerciful Machine Empire.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

P - Armstrong (Aram Anni Pada), Y - Yoda, Z - Zechs Merquise, A - Alana, C - Captain Harlock, E - Queen Emeraldas, H - Heath Huston

i'm fine with doing the reverse order and doing teams to oppose (or doing more teams if you already created teams to oppose your teams)
