assign characters. What fun is that? You'd have the option of playing established Marvel personalities or instead creating your own.
I'd suggest striking a balance between 'fully actualized' and 'room for growth,' but that's entirely up to you. In my opinion, since most characters have been written by a figurative legion of writers over the years, it's entirely legitimate to say, "I want to play Captain America." You would be, for all intents and purposes, writing him, after all. On the other hand, if you decide that Cap's going to become a womanizing, drunken Chinese double agent, I'll probably pull the plug on your creative portrayal before you can say, "Malfunctioning LMD."
This world has taken a somewhat different turn than the mainstream reality, Marvel-616. A number of heroes you've grown to know and love are dead, never to return, since I don't, as a rule, resurrect the fallen, as does 616—though it's not entirely
unheard of. Some villains have also departed the mortal plane, and quite a few never existed.
I'm certainly willing to begin a thread explaining some of the more apparent differences between Marvel-616 and Marvel-1776, if anyone's interested.
