Calling all prose writers who like superheroes...

I came across this yesterday: 

At the very least, their prologue and character profiles (running the gamut from serious to not serious) are worth reading through. I’ve come across similar non-superhero projects like this before where a story and characters have been set up for writers, but usually they restrict you to say five characters (not the sixty of superhumans available here). In addition, you may choose to create your own and have one or more their creations along for the ride, which sort of makes it more like a comic universe.


  1. Whoa...I've never seen anything like this before. And they pay?!

    I've got to investigate this further. Having guidelines to follow and characters premade is such a great writing challenge.

  2. Oh, and on a related note:

    ScriptFrenzy is starting in April. It's run by the folks who run NanoWriMo, I think. Apparently a graphic novel script counts, which I never realized before.
