“I’m just saying, it’ll be hilarious.”

“You’re the hero, aren’t I supposed to be the one thinking out ill advised pranks.”

“Not for today, I’m not! Now c’mon, swap costumes with me!”

Supervillain Origin Stories

For Realzies This Time

I wanted desperately to become a hero, but I found that I could not operate within the laws because there’s simply too much evil in the world to deal with legally

I tried to become a hero, but the nature of my powers inherently set me up to become a villain

Spite

Turns out vigilantism is a slippery slope, and eventually I became the monster I so desperately wanted to eradicate.

I have information the government/other heroes want, and resorted to a life of supervilliany to protect it.

I have a few loved ones I would destroy the world to protect. Looks like I’m going to have to go through with it.

I’m desperately ill with a disease that’s killing my younger siblings. They don’t know I have it as well, and I’m running out of time to find a cure for us. Supervillainy was the only thing I could do.

My powers have skewed my moral code enough that I don’t realize that what I’m doing is wrong

Supervillian origin stories???

Supervillians are so fun!!!

I made a typo in the skype group chat and realized i could never regain my honour so meh why not

My cat refused to sit with me on the couch and i became sad

Someone laughed at my contouring on the day I actually put effort into it

As a hero guys would hit on me in my costume and i had to suffer through it, but NOW i can shave their heads into a reverse mohawk SO HA

My little cousin said the villians were cooler and I need to impress xir

I speak like 5 languages. Whens the last time you heard of a multi-lingual hero?? I thought so.

I paid 30$ for a highlighter and it was shitty 😡

Hella rad superhero au ft. Ladies

Otherwise Known As: The Crow Sucks At Naming List Prompts And Needs Help

Here we go: Create an all-lady (and nb folks & men if you want, I’m just saying ladies for reasons that will be explained) Super hero league!!!

Why all female??? Easy.

All the members will have their powers and identities based off these abstract concepts, all of which are personified as ladies.

The concepts? The tenants of freedom and the nine Grecian muses!

Victory

Justice

Truth

Liberty

Kalliope, the muse of poetry

Kleio, the muse of history

Ourania, the muse of astronomy

Thaleia, the muse of comedy

Melpomene, the muse of tragedy

Polymnia,

the muse of

religious hymns

Erato,

the muse of

erotica

Euterpe,

the muse of

written music

Terpsikhore,

the muse of verbal song and dance

You can also use zodiac symbols and vices and virtues, but those are slightly more commonly used. I don’t think I‘ve seen any muse-based superhero works.

Hero villian prompts????

You’re a hero. Your datemate is a villain. You’re both aware of each others secret identities, and are very careful to never, ever let it slip that you’re dating to any of your allies. As a result, you both guard your secret identities reverently, creating a divide between you and your fellow heroes- the villains don’t care so much about that sort of thing.You have a loving and extremely healthy relationship, somehow.

You’re a hero and your identical twin is a villain.

You were a hero, once. Then you saw what the government was trying to do with the gifted members of the population and realized that to protect the people, you had to become a villain.

Your parents are supervillains. You’re dying of an incurable disease, and they desperately want to save you, even if it’s to the detriment of other people. You don’t tell them, but you’re the hero trying to stop them. Your life isn’t worth this,

You’re a thirteen-year old hero and your arch-nemesis is somewhere in their thirties. They protect you from other villains and keep ‘kidnapping’ you into their lair to feed you soup and improve your armour. This is very annoying to you.

You’re possessed by the spirit of a notorious villain, who, upon realizing xe was dying, tried to take some healthy random citizens body- lucky you. You now use their powers for good, locked in a never ending struggle for control over your own body.

You’re a parent whose child was taken by a villain. You decided to become a villain yourself and infiltrate their ranks to find your child.

You’re an underage hero who keeps being objectified by the media, and is very uncomfortable with the amount of sexual attention you receive from strangers whilst in your costume. Your arch-nemesis somehow finds out about your age and begins appearing out of the woodwork to fight you just as someone begins hitting on you

You’re a hero, and your once-mentor has become your arch-nemesis. Xe keeps trying to convert you to xir side.

More to come??

ideas for disabled superheros

as written by a disabled asshole b/c there needs to be more but it can b very difficult to write a disabled superhero w/o being unintentionally ableist

I’m not saying this list is perfect b/c im only human, so if there’s something on here you don’t like, tell me and i‘ll edit/ remove it (also if you want to add stuff please do!!)

(also to my lovely followers/readers if you want to contact me directly about specific trope, interactions, or ideas please do)

Now! Onto the list!

A blind archer with precognitive and spacial-distortion abilities! They get information about the crime beforehand, and set up portals around the area and alarm to let them know when the crime is going down. Then, they just shoot into the portals at the set time.

A person with electrokinesis and epilepsy. They’re able to notice the distorted signals in their brain before they have a seizure, and can temporarily hold the seizure at bay while they get to a safe location. Unfortunately, it’s such fine work they can’t manage it for too long, but it’s enough!

A hero with fibromyalgia and super strength! Their chronic pain, fatigue, and muscle ‘weakness’ isn’t going to stop them from saving the city!! …Until they wake up the next day with no spoons. And the day after that. And the next.

A person with DID who keeps their powers quiet and to themselves…. until a new alter starts fronting who’s going to be an amazing hero!!!! queue best secret identity ever. Core personality is Frustrated w/ all the bruises

Another DID one b/c i worry that that’s too stereotypical and tropey-  a person with DID who’s got mf telepathy and precog who’s perpetually trying to clean up their headspace

A schizo-affective elementalist whose mf arch-nemesis is an illusionist. They’ve got years of practice picking up on a warped perspective, no two-bit joker wannabee is gonna trip them up from gliding avatar-style ‘round the city!

A person with ehlers-danlos and severe tachycardia who uses a wheelchair as their primary mobility aid who can possess their service dog and goes around offering emotional comfort and basic assistance to bystanders and victims of tragedies.

More coming soon? who knows
