Sergeant Invincible.

A soldier unloading with a huge gun and rage face.The following is a conversation between me and my friend David from this morning.  He’s explaining the Marvel RPG system to me.  (I’m [ADEMA] Zero…ADEMA was our clan tag for Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 and stands for the Alternative Department of Emergency Military Assistance.  Our RP was that we were a band of mercenaries sent in during the zombie apocalypse.  But I digress…)

Drake: yeah…the rules are kind of open.  Its a total story telling game so it doesn’t matter if you’re OP or not
Drake: Black Widow and Thor can team up and its no problem
[ADEMA]  Zero: Sounds leet.
Drake: looks fun.  Trying to play it over Google Hangouts
Drake: since there’s no need for maps or anything
[ADEMA]  Zero: Ok.  I want to make Sgt. Invincible.  He can kill anything he wants and can never die.
[ADEMA]  Zero: Also flight.
[ADEMA]  Zero: He has flight.
Drake: haha okay sweet.  Sounds like an interesting story.
Drake: I’m sure your comic won’t be cancelled immediately.
[ADEMA]  Zero: This is fresh.
Drake: That’s cool. They spent a lot of money buying the franchise so you can play as awesome heroes.  But Sgt. Invincible sounds awesome :P
[ADEMA]  Zero: In the first installment, we need a villain who thinks he can kill Sgt. Invincible by exploiting his weakness (SI’s dashing good looks are mitigated by a tiny scar on his left foot that haunts him to this day) to kill him.
[ADEMA]  Zero: Of course, he won’t be able to, because Sgt. Invincible cannot die.  Or feel pain.
Drake: even emotional pain
[ADEMA]  Zero: He can feel that.
[ADEMA]  Zero: He can even be a tragic hero who wants to die to escape the emotional pain and never can.
[ADEMA]  Zero: BOOM!
[ADEMA]  Zero: Plot device.
[ADEMA]  Zero: Also he can make it rain whenever he wants.
[ADEMA]  Zero: Which is all the time because he’s depressed.
[ADEMA]  Zero: And even sleeping with a different woman every night doesn’t help.
Drake: haha man that sucks to be him
Drake: And that huge pile of money he inherited from his dead billionaire parents only makes him feel guilty about all the starving children
Drake: and all the supermodels he sleeps with only reminds him of his own immortality while they will grow old and die
Drake: TRAGIC HERO
[ADEMA]  Zero: lmao!!!!
[ADEMA]  Zero: Laughing so hard over here…
Drake: I’m crying tears of empathy
[ADEMA]  Zero: lmao!

And thus, Sergeant Invincible was born.  I expect a fully developed plot line in the comments by the end of the day.

Bonus points if you can spot the Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference.

It's funny how ambitions change over time.
Update and pics from #AACon15. MST3K cast members were at my talk.
GAMING: God-tier game as Kalista.
PERSONAL: Happy birthday, Hitch.
