welcome to TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN! we are an au marvel cinematic universe, and we are all-marvel inclusive!

it has been two years since s.h.i.e.l.d has fallen. the world is in chaos. Without a formal defense system, the duty of the world's protection has gone to the Avengers. But with all of S.H.I.E.L.D's secrets spilled on the internet and the Avengers causing trouble throughout the world, many people have found themselves questioning whether or not they can trust the superheroes. If the Avengers cannot be trusted, then who can? Attention is being drawn to those with powers who go unchecked, and people are afraid. With no way to keep them in check, the governments of the world are desperate for a solution. The Superhuman Registration Act is a tentative procedure that could out every person that has exceptional abilities, hero or mutant. But even superhumans and mutants have a right to privacy, right? Tensions are at an all-time high, but they may ultimately be the ones to destroy themselves.

character requests
this is a great place to look for inspiration for a character. you can also post ads here once accepted in hopes that someone will fill them. ads for characters that do not fit in either male or female (non-binary, genderfluid, ambiguous gender, etc.) can go under "other."

digital media
digital media can be a great way for your character to interact with others, especially in small ways that might not warrant an actual thread. they can also be a great alternative to figuring out plots while staying in character. if there is another form of digital media you'd like to add, feel free to pm an admin!
