Peter Parker Quest, Issue #39.1>Rules: http://pastebin.com/w5G3aG3Y>Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/q1AqTT5h>My twitter: https://twitter.com/QuestOpCosgrove>Archives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Peter%20Parker%20Quest>Story Arc database: http://pastebin.com/fR0Z1SNKYou stare in stupor for a moment before a wide, goofy grin crosses your face. “Well, I’d say it’s a very good surprise.”The twelve of you say grace as led by Aunt May before Uncle Ben cuts the turkey and you all begin eating and talking. You first focus your discussion towards BLACK FRIDAY- the day your super frugal ways go wild and you find the best deals- Gwen, Felicia, and Stella show interest in braving New York crowds with you to shop for things, especially Christmas presents. You pause and turn to Stella. “How have you been adjusting to school ,by the way?”She shrugs, eating more turkey. “Easy, I already know it and everyone else are… children.”You raise an eyebrow. “Technically, you’re a kid, too.”She snorts and turns her head. “Yeah, but I’m totally smarter than them.”Felicia and Gwen giggle as you turn towards those two. “Hey, how’s school and college search going for you two, by the way?”Felicia shrugs. “Well, I’m not a genius like you, but I’m able to keep up with my work enough to make decent grades. I think I’m going to try for ESU’s English department, not as illustrious as your science, but its something enjoyable nevertheless.”Gwen finishes stuffing her face before replying. “ESU, definitely- I’m going in for biology mostly, probably a minor in electronic engineering. Its what Otto Octavius did, you know.”>1/?
Quick on the draw as always, Cos. Thank you
>>29034901And now we wait for Norman to chime in about how he could get her an internship under Otto if she's interested...
>>29034970This can lead to good things, terrible things, or both.Most likely both.
>>29034970>Wow Mr. Osborn I'd do -anything- for that.
>>29034990Please don remind me...
>>29034901Excellent, Felicia wants to go to the same college. Makes relationship/costumed stuff easier.
>>29034970We could privately take her aside at some point later and convince her to intern under Susan Storm?We're already getting Peter's blood work done under her supervision.
>>29034990ptsd comic fan time....the editors and writers...they couldn't leave characters long dead alone. Not even resurrecting her, but instead to shoehorn even more tragedy into an already tragic life and death...why do the writers hate the people Peter loves?why
>>29034901You see Norman’s head turn. “Oh, are you all talking about College, then? I went to ESU myself, you know. Its where I met your father, Peter, and yours, Eddie. Of course, we were all nobodies back then, but we all got along as well as a wet bag of cats. At first, that is. By the way, Miss Stacy, Otto Octavius just accepted a contract to work at Oscorp today.”He takes a sip of his drink before smiling- if you didn’t know better and knew what kind of man he was, you’d say he was cheerful. “I can’t say I could get you an internship, Otto’s very particular about his working conditions, but I might be able to get you to meet him. Also if any of you three face any trouble at ESU, be sure to get word to me and I’ll clear it up.”Gwen pauses and looks over at Norman, confused. “Wait, I though Oscorp was mainly focused upon medicinal and biological developments, though?”Norman grins wryly. “We were, right up until Tony Stark’s disappearances. We’ve been planning some technological developments, but Tony’s announcement today secured me Otto’s contract- the two never got along, did you know?2/?
>>29035056That reminds me, Reed Richards and Ben Grimm are probably having an even worse Thanksgiving right now.
>>29035013>>29035024>>29035040>>29035058>>29035062>>29035068I never apologise
I thought Gwen was aware Oscorp was up to evil shit, though.
>>29034990no just no
>>29034970You caused this>>29035069
>>29035074That's why I want to convince Sue to go talk to Reed.
>>29035083I'm pretty sure we brought it up with her.
>>29035069>>29034901Is Harry just staring at us all with pure hatred in his eyes?
>>29035069Oh look at that, a way for some early Oscorp recon before Felicia and us sneak in. Also meeting Octavius should be cool.
>>29035069>the two never got along, did you know?That's putting it mildly.Although on Tony's part I think it would be more "Who's Otto Octavius?"
>>29035099Please, my post was the logical prediction of Cosgrove's character interaction. Not my fault he hadn't finished writing his second post when he opened this thread.
>>29035081...oh no>>29035069Its happening...the road to this begins
>>29035083That was one of the first things we've established.
>>29035117We did, but this just guaranteed that we're introducing her to Susan ASAP.
>>29035131Now that we finally have Felicia and Gwen in the same place maybe we should start actually planning that. In the basement of course.
>>29035158She and Susan would get along very well, I think. They both are biology buffs, after all.Stop thinking what I know you're thinking, pervs.
Gwen meeting Octavious isn't necessarily a bad thing. We know Osborn is bad news, but we don't know about Ock in this incarnation. Plus, if she learns how those arms work...
>>29035158No it doesn't
>>29034901>biology with a minor in electrical engineering... I.... I wish I could do that.A minor in engineering.Now I'm a Computer Engineer as it's the CLOSEST way to do brain computer interfacing work as of now. (no, biomedical engineering isn't in any way about that in most colleges)ANYWAY, >>29035069knowing where this is goingtime for subtle nudging to gwen or no nudging at all...Would nudge... but she's also in danger of her spider abilities being found out
>>29035181I refuse to stop thinking that Susan would make a much better "mentor" for Gwen than Norman fucking Osborn! That's just a given for crying out loud.
>>29035181What's wrong with them forming a superhero duo?
>>29035190Not to mention the whole "Osborn murdered my and Eddie's parents" thing.
>>29035069Gwen looks rather… torn on her opinion and chooses to just quietly thank him as he turns back to talk with Eddie Brock about something. Lowering your voice, you turn to your conversational partners. “So, what did you think of Iron Man, then?”Felicia shrugs. “Above my level, but I like the hotrod red.”Stella smiles, raising her voice. “I think Spider-man could take Iron Man. New York’s heroes beat California’s any day.”Norman, Eddie and Uncle Ben toast to that as Norman turns his focus back to you. “So, Miss Stacy, Peter- how do you think Tony did it?”>[ ] Answer honestly, involve yourself with a intellectual discussion with Norman Osborn.>[ ] Evasive- ask about the things you haven’t figured out- the power supply and how it can do such complicated maneuvers.>[ ] Give slightly flawed reasons someone as smart as Norman would pick up on them- he might lose interest in you>[ ] Write in

>>29035215"The Fantastic Duo: The Scarlet Spider and The Invisible Woman!"Yeah, that would work pretty well. Plus it'd be amusing to see Gwen knocking Johnny around like his big sister.

You know, regarding the safety of our companions:>Stella is She-Loki>Gwen is the Scarlet Spider>Felicia is the Black CatI think our pals are safe, and we are actually really close to having a super team.>>29035069And a question, Cos, are Daredevil and Luke Cage already in existence in this universe?

>>29035229>Answer HonestlyNorman knows us well enough to pick up on us faking. No need to make him suspicious or think we're trying to through Harry a bone (intentionally failing to give our friend the chance to look good in front of his dad).

>>29035229>[ ] Evasive- ask about the things you haven’t figured out- the power supply and how it can do such complicated maneuvers.He'll know we're faking if we say flawed things, and honestly we'll see upgraded hob tech

>>29035310>Makes you curious what modifier Norman has on his Fellowship roll.Probably very fucking high considering he's a CEO. Fellowship is his primary stat.>>29035321But being evasive fixes both of those problems.
>>29035326yes but not in 616), by her boyfriend...
>>29035326Well then, we'll just have to make sure that doesn't happen, won't we?
>>29035326Shut up, everyone hated that comic.Besides, as long as we stay her boyfriend she won't get violated by the dreaded "Ryan", who was her boyfriend in 616.

>>29035339>but evasive fixes thatNo, evasive makes us roll fellowship against his intellect. You really want to do that?

>>29035229>[ ] Write in"I can't figure it out. I know the guy's work in the technological field is amazing, but this is on a whole other level entirely. I'm stumped."We're being honest, and it's technically true; we can't figure out (in character, anyway) how the heck Tony is powering his suit.
>>29035229[X] Answer honestly, involve yourself with a intellectual discussion with Norman Osborn.
>>29035185One Step closer.
>>29035374We do have Silver Tongue now, so it's probably worth a shot.
>[ ] Answer honestly, involve yourself with a intellectual discussion with Norman Osborn.Im not going against his fellowship score.Let play along.
>>29035388Not on our watch. So far we've done things in a way that could be perceived as an improvement from 616 Peter's actions.I'd dare say we are the Superior Spiderman.
>>29035229>[x] Evasive- ask about the things you haven’t figured out- the power supply and how it can do such complicated maneuvers.IN A CAVE WITH SCRAPS!
>>29035361He was probably in league with Skip, or whatever the guy who molested Pete as a kid's name was.
>>29035388Cosgrove won't do that.He'll kill us but he won't do that.
>>29035388Spock is such a hack
>>29035222well that's an issue too, but we know that having someone inside would help with obtaining justice on that front. Even peter would know that enough for it to outweigh his anger
>>29035229>[X] Answer honestly, involve yourself with a intellectual discussion with Norman Osborn.He knows we're smart.And I think it's about time we saw just how dangerous our sort-of nemesis is.
>>29035425C'mon, could be fun for an end game arc. Have to face a villain in our body while in his. Lose since we'd be pretty damn powerful by that point, only to get bailed out by our spectacular allies and friends who aren't being constantly hit by Slott's retard ray.
He's probably going to use our talk to give him ideas for his own weapons systems.Iron Goblin, anyone?
>>29035229semi-evasivegive a little, ask a lot. Granted the little we say, he'll probably already have figured out... but by doing this we can grab a few ideas WE can use
>>29035480>Iron GoblinWhat have we done?>Captcha: Prayer foolyz
>>29035480I mean... if you want.
>>29035433I really do like the look of that suit.
>>29035509>What is Iron Patriot?
>>29035520One of my favorite Goblin looks.
>>29035539>Posting the pretender
Rolled 13 + 9>So...>I'm going to ask you to make a minor deception roll for me- 1d20+3-the result is this roll, minus five.
Rolled 13 + 3>>29035567
Rolled 18 + 3>>29035567
Rolled 3 + 3>>29035567
>>29035585ANON WITH THE SAVE!!!!
Rolled 6 + 3>>29035567Well golly.
Rolled 9 + 3>>29035567
>>29035585Good save anon.
>>29035585Ding ding ding we have a winner.
>>29035567Fuck the Osborns and their obscene modifiers.
>>29035594Off by one
>>29035567>+ 9soo we can't use our silver tongue on him?
>>29035610>>29035615We subtract 5 from his roll.
>>29035615>DC is the roll- Minus five- so 17.
>>29035610But it's not OP's roll, it's Op's roll -5.
>>29035610Anon, you forgot about Silver Tougue.MINUS 5 on the DC.
>>29035610>Off by one>>29035567>the result is this roll, minus five.Up by 4 actually. I made the same mistake.
>>29035615I think silver tongue got us that minus five.
>>29035625Oh, ok. Why not add 5 instead of 9
>>29035628>>29035625Im really really really tired after whole night of questing and working, my brain doesn't help me out with maths
>>29035628If his roll was +9, -5, why not just roll +4?
>>29035655wouldn't it just be easier to auto add 5 to our roll?
>>29035642Because we now see how high a modifier Norm has with what is probably fellowship or intelligence. Then again Fellowship is probably one of his primary stats.
>>29035642>>29035655Gotta spell out all the modifiers so people don't mistakenly ask why X wasn't taken into account.
>>29035642>>29035655So we can see with our own eyes how much an Osborn lies.
>>29035585Nicely done anon!
>>29035666No, the lowered DC is worth more since it allows a higher range that Crits can still work.
>>29035679Yup.Osborn Fellowship score is fucking insane.
>>29035704>Actually perception uses INT
>>29035704Peter mental note to self, stay the hell out from him in future
>>29035704The outrageous haircut gives him a +4 intimidation bonus.
>>29035724>+4 to intimidate>not -4 to opposing sanity checks
>>29035724Any man who wears a hairstyle like THAT isn't afraid of anything.
>>29035724What the fuck is up with the Osborn's hair anyway? Shit doesn't grow that way naturally, what the fuck.
>>29035752its X genome mutation
You smile bashfully at Norman Osborn. “Well, honestly, I’m more concerned with two factors I haven’t figured out- I understand that Tony Stark is a genius at engineering, but I can’t figure out how he can manage the calculations to run that thing, let along the ability to power it and I’ve mostly focused on those issues to no avail.”Norman glances at the distracted Eddie before pulling out something from his pocket and handing it over, unfolding it, it seems to be a picture of Tony Stark’s chest- with a large circular device that’s glowing blue within it- he’s apparently at his house with a shirt off- stretching. Must’ve gotten out of bed?You stare down at the picture as you stare at his chest. There’s something familiar about that thing…>roll me an engineering roll- 1d20+8-DC-(27-5)22
>>29035720AHHH SHIT.OSBORN ISN'T JUST A CEO, HE ACUTALLY A REAL SCIENTIST.
>>29035752its his natural mutant power that runs in the family

>>29035773Good job anon!Okay, I'm going to be and will read archive tomorrow. Since I archived and updated last thread it won't let me do another in the same hour. So someone please archive and update this. Keep up the good work guys! Good night!
I wonder what would have happened if we rolled a 1?Would we spill gravy sauce all over it?
>>29035763ARC REACTOR GET!
>>29035773You're a credit to the team, Anon.
we made it
>>29035819It's best never to ask those questions, anon.
>>29035819No we would just look at it and go "Durrrrrrr"
>>29035819It would have clung to our fingers as we tried to give it back.
>>29035763Next you'll have us roll for trying to hide our boner.
>>29035767Yeah, he's a chemical and engineering genius. He's created a number of super soldier formulas, made dozens of aircrafts, weapons out the wazoo, and even created and weaponized a cure for cancer.
>>29035860We already did shortly after discovering Felix was actually Felica and the Black Cat.
>>29035860>Nat 1>put our hands behind our head and just grin at everyonetheyll know whos the alpha male by the end of this dinner
>>29035838Osborn pulls out a picture of a topless man out."Bu-... but mr.Osborn, that's forbidden love."
>>29035879>nat 1*Thump*"Did somebody kick the table?"
>>29035773>>29035763>Peter's face when he realizes Tony build a working miniaturized Arc Reactor before he didToo slow, Parker, m'boy.
Ok, so what are we planning on doing with this knowledge? Arc reactor powered Iron-Spider suit?Or are we going to go with minimal tech and lean towards the original superior suit?
>>29035905give peter a break.He isn't rich, nor did he got the same education, he younger and he wasn't force to make a minaturized arc reactor in a cave.
>>29035890Spectacular! Spectacular Spider-Cock!I hope Felicia can handle our girth.>>29035905Cut us some slack. We only have a box of scraps to work wi-... oh. Yeah, I guess we do need to step it the fuck up, huh?
>>29035879>nat 1Barbed spiderdick suddenly emerges through the table.
>>29035763i really think we should ask out loud why norman carries around a picture of a shirtless man.
>>29035924Anon.We got the blue prints to the protoype.And we just found out Mini Arc Reactor is possible.Peter can't stop himself from trying to make his own Iron man.If that russia dude did it, So can Peter.
>>29035928radioactive spider spermWe had to come back to this eventually
>>29035763If we say anything it should at most be a simple "that changes everything" though I think a "...oh" is probably sufficient since we have no chance of maintaining a poker face in the face of the SCIENCE!
>>29035924I say go with Stark's suit that Peter got after embracing the Totem.See: >>29035433
>>29035945Can we make a mini nuclear reactor powered by semen?
>>29035945Can we make an ironman suit powered by radioactive spider sperm?We could give it to Felicia
>>29035945Didn't we already get tested by Sue and were determined to not be radioactive at all? Oh god, that sounded lewd.Besides, DOOM already confirmed that our powers came from magic, not radiation.
>>29035945Though in this case wouldn't it just be carcinogenic? I mean, the spider that bit us wasn't radioactive at all.
>>29035941To be fair, he had access to the Russian black market and we don't.>>29035945I wish people would just get over that. Reign was actually a pretty good book but it gets nothing but grief because of that.
>>29035941If not a suit, a Spidey Utility belt powered by a miniature ARC with cool gadgets.
>>29035958That's what I meant by 'Iron Spider'Full fledged power armor isn't a good idea.
>>29035958heads up though, Stark built in a Killswitch when Peter switched sides in Civil War
>26-2 successes thanks to perk! PASS+!The form of the device in his chest- that design. The glow, and design…You’ve seen this before- its an Arc Reactor.You mind does the math- If this is imbedded into his chest, and can be even similar in output to the large scale on in California… Holy Shit- that’s how he powers it. Tony Stark cut a hole into his chest to power his armor. That actually sounds wrong, but there’s probably more that than meets the eye.You look up at the knowing look of Norman before passing the paper to Gwen, who has a similar reaction, before she hands it to Norman. “Now- as to how he has the calculations- Stark doesn’t often overindulge, but he’s more than once drunkenly bragged about the AI he’s made- that could do the calculations just fine, I presume.”He pats his pocket with the picture. “But how did he miniaturize it? Do you have any ideas?”>[ ]try to puzzle out the Arc Reactor with Norman>[ ]I might if I thought about it, but it’s thanksgiving, Norman- work isn’t the only thing we should be talking about.>[ ]Clam up, do not answer.

>>29035905And we were going to build one how? We didn't have the materials, or a helpful gang of terrorists to sit on their asses and provided the material.
>>29035941Yea, i was gonna stick with the costume Felicia made, but if we just opened the path to making our own mini Arc Reactor...Iron Spider here we come!
>>29035967I will take approximately about a 2L bottle of mountain dew red alert filled with our radioactive semen to power it

>>29035989>write in"wait... how did you get that? And why would you carry it with you? Do you have a collection of shirtless scientist photos?"
>>29036044>Act slight disturbing at fact that Tony cut some of his guts to make space for arc reactoryes, this is a good idea, we can play that off as why we can't think about how to do it.
>>29035989>[ ]I might if I thought about it, but it’s thanksgiving, Norman- work isn’t the only thing we should be talking about.Ohhhh no, we're not giving Osborn any hints on this. If we're gonna figure out how Tony did it, we're keeping it for our own use.
>>29036060Can we please say this?
>>29035989>[ ]I might if I thought about it, but it’s thanksgiving, Norman- work isn’t the only thing we should be talking about.This one >>29036038 works pretty well too.
>>29036038THAT would require another bluff check. I'd rather we just stop discussing it.
>>29036060Voting in favor of this, why DOES Norman have a shirtless picture of Tony Stark?
>>29035989[X]try to puzzle out the Arc Reactor with Norman
>>29035989>Write in"I only know the theory behind those...I'd need to see some actual blueprints and read a lot more of the literature before I'd be able to make any kind of useful speculation. Oh man, I promised not to nerd out today otherwise I'd already be on my way to ESU's engineering library. Maybe if..." fake Felicia kicking us under the table at this point.
>>29036038No.I'm not testing Osborn Fellowship or Intelligence scores.I now know better.
>>29036060Well now you've piqued my curiosity.Could it be that Tony Stark is Osborn's husbando?
>>29036038Eh, It's not impossible that the California Arc Reactor has public blueprints.
>>29035989>[ ]I might if I thought about it, but it’s thanksgiving, Norman- work isn’t the only thing we should be talking about>work isn't the only thing we should be talking about>work isn't the only thing>work>not scienceWE'VE BEEN BAMBOOZLED
>have to call it here guys, sorry. Got work in the morning.
>>29036119Well..Science = Work Pete wants a career as a scientist, mate.
Rolled 16 + 8>>29036128Cos pls why.Thanks
>>29036128NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!See ya Cosgrove.Can you at least finish this update and we can have a cliff hanger finish?
>>29036128Thanks for running Cos. Catch ya next time.
>all of this lewd>>29036044>>29036066Well we just saw a guy who may or may not chopped himself a part for whatever reason, just to put some super-science-batteries inside>>29036128when next thread? tuesday?next week?
>>29036119He told us that Oscorp recently started up its engineering department. Calm yourself.>>29036128Fug. Okay no problem. Thanks for running!Next quest when?
>>29036128Thanks for the thread. You are not making another one until the christmas special, right?
>>29036128Thanks for the fun night, Cosgrove. It was fun and an informative night.
Hey, Spider-man! Spider-man!I'd like to invite you to this group I'm assem-...Man, there he goes. I don't even thank he heard me. At least he didn't hit me in the face with a door like Tony Stark did.Don't worry Janet, I'm sure it'll work out!Even if it's just you and me, we'll save Christmas!>A VERY PYM CHRISTMAS IS COMING
someone still need to archive this thread
>>29035989>[ ] Write in"Well, your guess is probably better than mine.">[ ]Clam up, do not answer. Do not even THINK about Arc Reactor blueprints.
>>29036189SQUEEEEE!Are... Are we going to the microverse to save Santa?
>>29036189>not a very big pym christmasNig u evn tryin?
>>29036189Crazy science is best science
>>29036189Public Appearance of Gi-antMan is go.
>>29036189HANK PYM AND JANET VAN DYNE SAVE CHRISTMAS!
>>29036228Fuck yes! I can't wait to see his character sheet.22 INT minimum.
>>29036189>The crazy Pym picture...Janet's going to be a sock puppet, isn't she?
>>29036272This can only ends well
>>29036264Pym Madness incoming.I look forward to that and the rest of our time skip shenanigans.
>>29036287Pym and Spider-Man team up!Gotta find that wallet...
>>29036287all dat smug on one page
>>29036287We can waifu Janet up.And choose not to hit her at all because apparently if you do that, even once, you're labeled a monster despite other well-known heroes committing mass murder on a monthly basis.
>>29036309No, really, how would Spider-Man EVER get his wallet stolen? He has fucking Spider-Sense.He most likely dropped it. Good thing too because if it actually were a thief, he'd know who Spider-Man really is.
>>29036341It was in his street clothes. He webbed them up and some guy saw him do it and stole them.
>>29036347also if someone happens to talk down on Pym we should say that he was the one that discovered pym-particles
>>29036313To tell the true she is kind of...slap-able?
>>29036330>>29036347That was such a good issue.
>>29036365Just found a page from that issue
>>29036389can't find it, but there is a panel of She Hulk doing the same thing.
>>29036189Shit, did we fail a listen check at some point?
>>29036462My crit fail of perception after we wiped the floor with Hobby.
>>29036455Its almost like you can't be a truly join avengers if you never hit her in face.
>>29036462Some time at the end of October, this is probably a fastforward to Cristmas.
>>29036462Back when we were going to Felicia's we had a listen check we crit failed on. But I think this was just Pym not getting our attention narratively and not something we rolled for. We were out of costume that time.
>>29036482Oh, great... we're predestined to fail a listen check.
>>29036498We're also predestined to hit tony in the face with a door, so there's a plus.
>>29036521But Tony hit Pym in the face with a door.
>>29036521I interpreted that as Tony slamming the door on Hank's face.
>>29036521>At least he didn't hit me in the face with a door like Tony Stark did.No, Pym got hit by the doorsAlso we need to let Pym join our super friends group
>>29036548She-Loki, Black Cat, Scarlet Spider, Wasp, AntMan, and Spider Man?Wow.
>>29036578Don't forget Susan and Johnny Storm, and DOOM.
>>29036578Soon followed by: Iron Man, War Machine, Agent Venom, Spider-girl, Invisible Woman, Humantourch , Thor/Hercules and many more
>>29036584We should make a note to have Susan and Gwen meet.And we should be seeing the results of hanging out with Johnny sometime soon. Once he gains the ability to fly and shoot fireballs, he can be invaluable if we ever face down any symbiotes.
>>29036613>>29036584>>29036599To do list:>keep working on our scientific and costume projects>make Felicia the grapple hook as a christmas gift>bro it up with the Storms and introduce Gwen to Susan.>try to somehow meet Iron Man>try to somehow meet Nick FuryAnything that needs to be removed/edited/added?
>>29036644We have Nick Fury's phone number from our dad's harddrive, so really, we can technically call him whenever we want. The problem is that the moment we do, S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to be so far up our ass we'll be spitting them UNLESS we cna convince Fury to let this be between just us.
>>29036613We should really start tying up the Gwen's stalker's identity subplot.Did we ever convince her to get rid of the blood samples (like we did) to prevent cloning shenanigans by present day Jackal?We could also tie that with her meeting Susan too.
>>29036644Figure out the sandman mystery.
>>29036613>have Susan and Gwen meetIt would be almost criminal not to. Also am interested what Doom was up to all this time searching for Captain America frozen body/Making alliance with Atlantias/Preparing some anti-mater space satellites for taking down aliens>>29036644>meet Nick FuryWe mighty want to ask Felicia to check the reliability before we make any calls. And IC his phone call should be used as out-of-jail card, one use only.
>>29036686Susan Storm has our blood samples for testing.
>>29036644I'd say we should keep building up MJ's social links so she'll eventually tell us her terrible secret.Maybe figure out who Hobgoblin was, like just ask who was dressed as Superman during Halloween.
>>29036686We could ask Susan her opinion on Miles Warren.If he seems legit, then that'll let us make the terrible choice of allying with him.Like for all everyone is bemoaning clones, most of our clones have been pretty cool guys.
>>29036732Easier plan.We look through the school yearbook and find out who he is. We've seen his face three times. This isn't complicated.
>>29036721And is Gwen still independently doing her own blood tests then? I didn't see a scene featuring her with Susan whenever Peter gets his blood tested.At the very least, Gwen and Susan can empathize with one another with regards to what they are going through, so they might be more willing to help each other out.Susan may also read on Gwen's regret for not following through with Peter, and may spur her to amend her relationship with Reed Richards as a result.
Okay, so... I found a Spectacular Spider-Man Template thanks to Google image search, and after a few minutes of dicking around in Paint.NET, I came up with a half-assed original-ish costume design, that takes a bit from the Ben Reiley Spidey and Gerry Drew Spidey costumes, sorta. Again, it's half-assed, and I couldn't be arsed to draw in the webbing.
>>29036808Almost looks like red shoulder pads
What if our spider-sense gets turned on whenever MJ is frightened/upset/otherwise in an emotionally heightened state, and the reason she set it off constantly is because she WAS constantly afraid until Kasaday was behind bars?
>>29036875She could have just been menstruating at the time.
>>29036888...I mean... I guess. How do women with hemophobia handle that anyway?
>>29036908Badly, I wager.
>>29036908I guess that what you'd call a sticky situation!
>>29036956blood isn't sticky.
>>29036908...Hmm, now I'm intrigued to find out as well
>>29036956That was poor pun work, anon. You shame the name of Carlos.
>>29036908They probably just take birth control. That's what I'd do if I really wanted to avoid the whole issue that badly.
>>29037008birth control doesn't eliminate periods, it just reduces the duration of them.
>>29037035True. It would still be better than dealing with it for the longer duration, though.
>>29036875Also can we agree that if MJ IS Carnage thata: she, or at least the personality we've been talking to pretty much all the time, is not in control of Carnage's actions, but does appear to be aware of themandb: she has to possess SOME form of superpowers because come on.
When we become fully in tune with our powers by embracing our role as the Spider-Totem (thus becoming a de-facto sorcerer), this is the kind of costume we ought to have.
>>29037110But that's when Peter got his Iron Spider costume from Stark. I'd rather have that.
>>29037137No, it's a different costume than Iron Spider.
>>29037106Also have we ever gotten a good clear look at Mary Jane's face not being covered by her own hair?And we should ask her about college, might get a good gauge of whether or not she sees herself as having a future.
>>29037163What I'm saying is that after fighting Morlun and getting resurrected, Peter embraced his role as the Spider-Totem and got the Iron Spider costume from Stark.Also, it doesn't make sense for Peter to go full sorcery anyway. We should do both Tech and Magic. Just like DOOM.Also, Dr. Strange when.
>>29037172Good idea. Knowing her though she undoubtedly hasn't considered what she'd be doing if she got into college.>Felicia trying for an English degreeWhat the fuck... come on. That's pathetic. Maybe we can convince her to try for a degree that's not worthless.
>>29037110>>29037163god, why do so many people seem to like giving spider-man a piss yellow accent?
>>29037228We can make it blue if you want.
>>29037211Why?She's already got the equivalent of a PHD in thievery. Girl's entitled to coast. Maybe write poetry or something.
>>29037261I suppose. It's a fine cover for what she actually does. Still, she shouldn't go to college for something she'll never use.
>>29037228Because you can't have green and red in the same suit, so your options are sort of limited when red is a must.
>>29037290But aren't green and red complimentary colors? Is this just because of christmas? I'm certain there's at least a certain shade of green and red that would work.
>>29037278Maybe, she can write books or something
>>29037290>>29037307Light green or light blue work great together with red and dark blue.
>>29037211Well she's kind of fucked now isn't she?Pretty sure she missed the deadline to apply to colleges?
>>29037479She already applied and it's still possible to change majors without a problem.
>>29037479I think she already applied
Does anyone else feel like building our own miniature arc-reactor should have a DC of like... 40?I mean can you imagine how many points Tony Stark has put into engineering? Because it's a lot more than we did. Probably has about as high an Int bonus as Norman Osborn.We're still only 17 years old, even if we have the plans to the old arc reactor, some things should still be beyond us.
>>29037479She's already applied to ESU. Hence her wording "I think I’m going to try for ESU's English department".
>>29037504>>29037505I was talking about Mary Jane.You know, assuming she's not going to jail/hell.
>>29037513TONY STARK BUILT IT OUT OF A BOX OF SCARPS!... but we're not Tony Stark.
>>29037513If we did it in small steps and worked our way through it, we could do it as a more long term project. Might lower the DC to reasonable numbers we'd have to keep trying to pass.
>>29037521We can ask if she wants any help applying.If she really missed the deadline, there's always next year.
>>29037528>>29037527Remember that Stark had some pretty high-quality scraps.Like didn't he have a lot of his missiles to use?
Some movie references are well and good, but is it wrong that I hope the Mandarin is a Chinese megalomaniac wielding alien magitek?
>>29037590I'm sure that's one of the ways the movieverse and PPQverse will diverge. Ben Kingsley Mandarin was just fucking terrible. A slap in the face.
>>29037605I liked Mandarin in the Armored Adventures cartoon.I liked all of Tony's rogues in that cartoon, actually.
Rolled 12>>29036389Hmm. Maybe that's why everybody makes a thing out of it. Nobody ever clarified for everybody else that Janet wasn't Tiny at the time.
Good morning everyone,>>29037652yeah, if she's tiny and you have to fight her, your only chance of landing a hit is a wide handed slap
>>29036189>>29036209>>29036228>>29036261>>29036317This is going to be fun. Also, Santa Claus has a history of existing for realz in the Marvel Universe. So we may actually be saving Santa. Still, a rather interesting way for Pym to start his superhero career.
>>29037035>>29037043And there is also Orthotricyclin in the birth control camp, which specifically extends the time between menstrations from 30 to 90 days.
>>29037605Agreed, I want a dangerous science magic ring Mandarin, that want is up there with this being the style of the X-Men we wind up interacting with.
>>29039525which could technically make this scene involve the Vita Ray coffin.
>>29039525>>29039549X-Men Evolution X-Men would be cool. As you've said to me, it would make them in our age group.
