Welcome to United Heroes, a brand new superhero MUSH set in the year 2025. Rather than base our game on any one source, we've chosen to weave all the disparate realities into our own coherent theme. On Earth-1999, our little part of the multiverse, Agatha Harkness cast the "Spell of Humility" over the Gargoyle race, causing their garments to turn to stone during the day, Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa at the behest of Vandal Savage, the Chernobyl disaster caused many mutants to be born, and Matthew Murdock was blinded by the same ooze that mutated four baby turtles. While we count Marvel and DC as our primary sources, we've added other sources to truly bring our world alive. You can enjoy your Soder Cola with Big Belly Burger, or maybe you'd prefer a Zesti Cola and some chicken from Los Pollos Hermanos. Why not read about the day's events in a copy of the Daily Bugle, or maybe you get all your news from LexTV. We've strived to blend reality with the familiar aspects of the comics. The Hudson River is all that separates Old Gotham in New Jersey from the economic powerhouse that is Manhattan. Further up the coast, you'll find Metropolis, the city of Tomorrow, in Connecticut. Maybe you prefer the suburban life on Long Island, New York. And there's always BlÃ¼dhaven, though be careful out there. They seem to have a lot of spontaneous neck ruptures. It's not just about allowing these other concepts. We've integrated them. Buffy Summers might team up with some of the McCall Pack to investigate the disappearance of John Constantine. Victor von Doom can enjoy a delightful brunch with Ambassador Diana. At United Heroes, imagination comes alive. What will we think up next? Join us and find out. In general, we allow the majority of characters from the following comic companies: AC, Dark Horse, DC, IDW, Image, Marvel, Sentinel, and Valiant. In addition, we have allowed characters from the following sources with varying levels of adaptation: Ben 10, Big Trouble in Little China, Breaking Bad, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension!, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, Casper the Friendly Ghost, Charmed, Dresden Files, G.I. Joe, Gargoyles, Ghostbusters, Highlander, Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, Mercy Thompson, Mortal Kombat, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Resident Evil, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Street Fighter, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Thundercats. As unwieldy as that list may seem, we have taken each source on a case by case basis, doing our utmost best to ensure that it is adapted in a manner which is consistent with the world we have worked so hard to create. Earth-1999 is our attempt at a realistic portrayal of a Marvel, DC, and Other universe. Although we may revisit them later, we have chosen not to allow the following at this point in time: Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Go-Bots, Harry Potter, He-Man, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Transformers.
