The Infinity Watch is now in effect!
Welcome to Next Gen, thhe number one adress for mutants in Millenium City. Gathered from several broken timelines and deminsions Next Gen gathers the best and the brightest among metahumans to guard nothing less than reality itself.
"Next Gen: Infinity Watch" is a roleplaying supergroup based in the Massively Multiplayer Online Game, Champions. Formerly based in Paragon City before City of Hero was closed the Infinity Watch is a new version of the group, with a fresh new outlook, mission and focus. We welcome all refugees from Paragon and natives of Millenium City.
has been many things over the course of its existence and several
timelines. The one constant being that
it has always been an organization of mutants or metahumans, trying to find
first iteration the group was simply known as The Order, a powerful army
involved in a war between humanity and mutants so devastating that in the end
it shattered their own timeline.
age of Paragons:
a world known as Primal Earth the most powerful of the Order decided that war
can only end in the complete destruction of both sides and decided to use their
awesome knowledge of future events and technology to found a group dedicated to
protect all humans, powered or not and promote peace between the different
stages of evolution. The Next Gen was born. For years they battled threats from
mutant superiority cults to armies of genetic purity, all the while protecting
humanity and educating young mutants.
this iteration would not last. While Next Gen succeeded in preventing a war
between humans and metas they still could not save their world. Primal earth
and several dimensions close to it their destroyed in a catastrophe of
incomprehensible proportions, whole universes vanished in a nightmare of
shattering reality axioms. Even worse the mutants of Next Gen might have caused
this cataclysm themselves with their reckless manipulation of timestreams and
dimensional barriers. In the aftermath the signs should have been obvious.
Attacks from other worlds were abundant, dead gods reawakened and the lost NG
leader Tania Dayrunner herself wielded a power that could only be described as
reality burning fire. The possibility that she may have been the catalyst
through which the destruction started is still being investigated.
While Next Gen
knew the catastrophe was coming they had neither the time nor the power to stop
it. Preparing to face this new threat and save their world or die trying they
investigated the massive breakdown of reality. What they found was worse than
the end of the world. The destructive power could spread over other dimensions
and it would not stop. With their home lost Next Gen set out to use their power
to at least save other worlds from the same fate. Using their own futuristic
technology and knowledge acquired from a cult of former enemies they created a
massive spaceship, capable of traveling between dimensions. The Infinity was
capable of traveling to thousands of different realities and protect its crew
from simply ceasing to exist as the broken reality that was still part of them. It even hid them from the
beings that gorge themselves on destroyed universes and tried to follow them
through the multiverse. Protected in stasis chambers dozens of metahumans lie dormant, the systems of the
Infinity watching over them until they have sufficiently stabilized and
anchored in a new reality to be awakened.
-The ghost worlds:
himself used his powers to guide the ship out of the maelstrom of their dying
reality cluster, fusing the last of his lifeforce permanently to the Infinity.
Should he ever leave the ship he would simply cease to exist.All the other passengers were protected in the stasis chambers while their powers adjusted to being cut of from their home reality. While the Infinity escaped the cataclsysm it visitied hundreds of dimensions sometimes for less than a second before it moved on. During this transition period the scanners of the ship discovered more dying worlds much like Primal Earth. Whatever had killed Next Gen's homeworld it was infecting other realities too.
Galaxyan woke those mutants already
stabilized and powerful enough to leave their stasis pods.. Some had powers or a history that made them more suited to surivive
the death of their home reality than other. Among them the dimensional hopping
Commander Dayrunner and Grim Ichor, who had already lived partly in another realm
The Inifnity itself was traveling between dimensions as easily as
through water but instead of trying to find one home the most powerful and
competent would be sent to different realities. Called Executors they would be
the eyes, ears and hands of the Infinity. They would found their own versions
of Next Gen, recruiting more mutants, training them in their powers, stabilize
and protect their new worlds. All the while they would watch for signs of the
catastrophe, the reality dysfunction and the cyan fire that destroyed their
home. They would prevent the abuse of time travel and dimensionjumping, they
would stop dead things from beyond time and they would guard against the things
that consumed the shards of their own reality. Multiplying the force of Next
Gen over world after world each one would guard their own new reality.
a new reality they had never seen before the Infinity dispatched a dropship, a
simple pod containing everything needed to form an iteration of Next Gen on the
planet. The dropship landed on the moon, unfolding into a small base, providing
living quarters, medical facilities and teleportation beams to the earth below
for the new group. Also contained were 8 pods with Next Gen agents in stasis
waiting for the day they could safely release their occupants or be forcibly opened
by the Executor in charge on this new Millenium version of Next Gen in an
emergency. After the base had setup the Executor assigned to the dimension classified
as Millenium Earth went to the surface to start her work.
former villains, mutant witch, hybrid of metahuman and elder horror got to work
creating a new Next Gen, one shaped by her own powers and personality. Setting
out to recruit versions of mutants she knew from other realities she is
creating her own Next Gen, fighting for the mutant cause, building up a force
of powerful mutants to face whatever could threaten this reality. While
building the new organizations, using equipment supplied from the dropship
moonbase she reports to the Ininifty and tries to not only protect this world
but make sure it is one her still sleeping friends will want to live in once
While Next Gen attempts to regrow and protect Millenium City the Infinity keeps traveling between all worlds with iterations of Next Gen on them, founding them if they already exist or contacting them to incoperate them into the porject: Infinity Watch if some familiar form already exists. The Infinity travels between these iterations of the group, sharing the resources that can be afforded. Thus while Next Gen in Millenium City has no own production facilities they still get medical equipment, combat uniforms and even vehicles from their traveling home base thenever it can afford to visit. Yet for some worlds the arrival of the Infinity is nothing less than the last toll of the bell. Some realities are already broken too far to be saved. All the ship can do then is identifiy mutants with powers stable enough to survive and extract them before their earth dies. These exiles are then transported to another reality and integrated into an existing branch of Next Gen like the one in Milenium City. Thus Next Gen is not only made up of metahumans from one or two worlds but of dozens, sometimes even different versions of the same mutant from another world.
