Welcome to X-Men: Factions!

"Mutants. Since the discovery of their existence they have been regarded with fear, suspicion, often hatred. Across the planet, debate rages. Are mutants the next link in the evolutionary chain or simply a new species of humanity fighting for their share of the world? Either way it is a historical fact: Sharing the world has never been humanity's defining attribute." ~Charles Xavier

It has been years since HYDRA’s attack on S.H.I.E.L.D., and subsequently, the world. HYDRA was beaten back into the shadows, a whole host of heroes, and villains alike, facing off against the cascade of nightmares that arose seemingly from nowhere. Many were lost, and those that survived will likely always bear the scars. However, life tends to find a way of marching into the future, if given half a chance.

In the same spirit that has seen humanity rise from the many horrors of the past, people stepped out into a new day, a new reality. One that has recently seen metahuman inhabitants of earth gain a measure of rights.

Though those rewards were bestowed by grateful nations, for heroic deeds that most still cannot imagine, not everyone agrees with that course of action. Many still fear the raw power of those that are called mutants, afraid that they will simply use that power to subjugate those that are weaker than themselves. A fact that is difficult to debate while those that would abuse their power are still creating their own brand of chaos. Where a vacuum is created, others seek to fill the void. And while heroes always rise to meet the villains head on, there is always the fear of that which is not understood.

Where there is a split in ideology, different factions take shape, and that is exactly what the world has evolved into. A number of powerful factions have risen in the wake of the destruction.

What is your story? Where do you fit in?

Kat sat still in the passenger-side seat of James' car. She'd read the note from their mother, but part of her didn't believe it. Part of her refused to believe it. So for several long seconds that seemed to stretch into infinity, she just stared at the dash in front…

School had ended, and James stood leaned against the side of his car. Most of the guys were off trying to impress either their girlfriends or, if they didn't have girlfriends, each other. Even under normal circumstances, James had no interest in participating in that sort of macho BS. Today…

Jaclyn woke on a thin cot, under an itchy blanket. The room she was in was not cold, it was the first thing she noticed. The other thing was that she was naked under the blanket.

She lay stock still and let her gaze wander the room. There was…

Alright, here we go again. Another day in my old life.

It's been a couple weeks since Comic Con and I'm frustrated with looking weak in front of Zo. I've been working harder with Carlos and am finally getting some nice muscles going on my upper body. I'm no Schwarzenhoffer…
