"I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be, than me."

Let's be honest. For every good guy there's a villain, a bad dude, an angry person, a grumpy person - shoved in there or voluntarily choosing to be the bad guy. Life's not perfect, and until it becomes perfect then there's gotta be bad guys for superheroes to punch.

The problem is that it gets pretty lame and let's face it. Even if it's fun to be the bad guy, in some cases there might be some people who haven't accepted their role as bad guy or anti-hero. Or maybe batman just foiled your evil plan for the fifty billionth time. Or Aquaman showed up out of nowhere. You might be looking for a hook-up, or maybe you just need to cry (we all need to do it).

This is a "safe" (of sorts) place for villains, lady villains, and even anti-heroes who might just be really really angry to get out their frustrations. There's a selection of tables with terrible coffee, cookies, and stale donuts, metal folding chairs, and even if the sign says "no weapons." chances are you're armed right?


1. No good guys (Unless you want to AU your good guy into this.)
2. What happens in bad-anon stays in bad anon. Just post your character in a bad anon meeting.
2.5 For the sake of this, you can either fourth wall your character or treat it as "This is a typical support group for villains."
3. Have fun! And remember. There's no one you should rather be, then you.

[John's got a point to make this session and he's probably been angrily drinking coffee for a good five minutes.]

I want a bumper sticker - no, a T-shirt that says "The world would have been a better place with me in charge." Damn it. There. I'll own up to it. I mean there's real meaning behind what I did.

SHIELD fucked me over. [No marvel censors right? Okay good.] They did. And I'll scream it to the roof tops. Aw but they're good guys. - and I'm just like. "Sister if you knew half the shit I know about Nick fucking Fury you'd know. He'd deserve a chair. Right next to me.

Man. It's just - nobody's willing to acknowledge that the world needs bad guys. Or. Or that good guys can be just as bad.

'Good' is simply a marker of public support. The heroes are all a bunch of schoolyard bullies who just happen to have the right ties and funding.

[Doc Ock's voice is a low rumble- he's mostly been sitting apart from everyone else, straddling a chair backwards and mulling over coffee and donuts. The four metal tentacles that emerge from his back hold things for him helpfully, and ensure that he's given plenty of personal space by the menace of their mere presence.]

[personal profile] theclairvoyant 2014-11-05 02:02 am (UTC)(link)

Those are some tentacles.]

...Right ties and funding. I hear you. [sip] but with bad guys you got the whole "who's is bigger" bit. Why the hell can't we pull our shit together?

Why can't we pull it together? Isn't it obvious by now? It always kills me that so many of us don't get it. It's because we're all fucked up. We've all got trust issues, bad pasts, broken households, major traumas. Hell, most of the GOOD GUYS do.

The difference is that they can channel it better. We're all too caught up in our own shit to make lasting alliances.

[He frowns] Look man. I'm not trying to say, that we're not all selfish pricks.

I mean I will own that. I'm a selfish prick.

[caught up in our own shit? really?] But don't come to me and put my problems in a basket and say that they don't matter. I deserve revenge man.

[One eyebrow rises, over the dark glasses (sunglasses at night?). A metal tentacle brings a his coffee to his mouth, so the man doesn't have to lift a flesh-and-blood finger to sip it.]

I'm not competing with anyone. I just want to be left alone to pursue my scientific research.
theclairvoyant: (pic#8298789)

[personal profile] theclairvoyant 2014-11-05 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
and you can do that. Does that include those really really neat metallic tentacles? Cause those are pretty cool I gotta admit.

Would you like a set fused permanently to your spine? All it requires is a little electrocution... [One three-taloned claw snaps in the air a few times. Clickclickclick!]
theclairvoyant: (pic#8298789)

[personal profile] theclairvoyant 2014-11-05 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
[his smile is bright, pleasant, and slightly homicidal] No thanks, I'm good-

[and he'll lift up his own shirt to show that he's got his own set of seemingly cybernetic parts, half a chest and torso.]

Thinking it might be useful to see others with it, but what can I say I am a dreamer of the worst kind.

Then you know once the process is perfected.

[He studies the enhancements with professional interest, one claw swooping closer to get a better look.]

Hmh. These were designed as merely tools for a larger experiment in fusion reaction... until a spandex-clad so-called superhero interfered. [Snarl. Gnashing of teeth.]
theclairvoyant: (pic#8298789)

[personal profile] theclairvoyant 2014-11-05 02:41 am (UTC)(link)
..Aw. [spandex clad superhero] Tough break bud. And then one thing led to another and suddenly you're the incredible bionic man?

[Garrett glares at a tentacle] Not until you buy me a drink Mr.

pridegoeth: (actuator attention)

[personal profile] pridegoeth 2014-11-05 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
... Even that sounds better than the Daily Bugle's name for me.

[He glances at the tentacle, which shakes itself with a quiet sound like a mechanical rattlesnake, then moves away to snag another donut off the snack table before shortening and curling closer to its host. Because he hasn't had enough donuts yet, clearly.]

[easy up there bud.]

Something clever like "Doctor spider"

"Scientist-y spider."

[He's a large man. With a large appetite.

He's also gone very still, watching him, breathing a little heavily. The tentacles, too, have paused, and one by one they focus in on him.]


Spider-man is the one who interrupted my fusion reactor, killed my wife, and left me permanently attached to these. [There's definitely a dangerous edge to his voice, but as long as he doesn't keep hearing the word 'spider' he'll be fine...]
theclairvoyant: (pic#8298789)

[personal profile] theclairvoyant 2014-11-05 03:10 am (UTC)(link)
[Spider man.

That's new.]

Never heard of him.

If we were talking Thor, Black Widow, or captain america I might be willing to help you with a little revenge but uh - no spider men.

Could be worse.
pridegoeth: (mild frown)

[personal profile] pridegoeth 2014-11-05 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
[New-ish, or maybe just licensed to a different company.]

Revenge is, as they say, a sucker's game. Albeit a very tempting one. I'll keep you informed though, if I run afoul of any of them. [He's reeling his temper back in.]

[personal profile] hardluckcat 2014-11-05 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
Oh no, life dealt you a hard hand, didn't it? Cry me a friggin' river.

Yeah, revenge always makes everyone feel better, right? I've been down that right more than once. It actually does feel good. At first.

[His gaze goes hard.

And he calms himself]
Don't get your tits in a twist princess. I have a right to my feelings. Ain't that what this stupid group is all about?

[personal profile] hardluckcat 2014-11-05 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
Some of us are actually trying to get to where we don't need to be at these things.

I just keep backsliding, no matter what I do to crawl out. Mostly because I find that whole "no killing" thing for enemies to be silly and pointless, and stealing money is just too damned easy.
theclairvoyant: (pic#8298789)

[personal profile] theclairvoyant 2014-11-05 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
...Wow wait. Wait. hold the phone. Are you bitching, about a redemption arc?

[Oh my god Ward go sit in your box.]

Want to prove you matter to the system so you don't have to end up here? Poor baby.

Just own it. Man the fuck up and own it.

[personal profile] hardluckcat 2014-11-05 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
You're one to talk, blaming other people for shit you put yourself in.

He's on his feet in a heartbeat.]

Shield left me to die!

And if I weren't trying to make the best impression here. [His smile is all crazy] I'd rip out your spine and beat you to death with it.

[personal profile] hardluckcat 2014-11-05 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
You chose that life.

[Thomas is keeping his cool.]

I hate to break it to you, Tin-man, but I've taken meta-humans before. I didn't need any fancy toys or special serums to do it, unlike a lot of guys I've known. Remember, this is supposed to be a safe space. Keep your crazy down to minimal levels. You really don't want to meet the security in this place.

[personal profile] theclairvoyant 2014-11-05 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
[He throws his hands up, defensive. It's a gesture that might look familiar to people who know his protege]

I'm cool.

I'm cool - cool as a cucumber. Just keep your judgement out of my face.

[Oh lord, get a load of this guy and how much emotional control he seems to have. Cool. As. Ice, that's you John.

And who better to respond to him than someone who's not just a master manipulator but who actually WON his game and will surely not be ultra-smug AT ALL about sore losers~.]

Alas, good sir. The world cares little for the pawn that could not cross over into a Queen.

[And who's also dressed like he belongs more in a Renessaince Faire than a Bad Guy support meeting.]
