Setting: The One With The Plant Monsters
Owner Unbitwise

Original. A superhero-style weird stuff kitchen sink invented for the sake of a thread.

Non-spoilery established facts:

  • There are mad scientists. Mostly competent ones, even. (Nobody can agree on a non-derogatory term to call the general category, even though there's enough of them that it is a general category.)
  • There are other sorts of villains enough that “supercrime” is a meaningful concept for the general public. (Nothing has been established about heroes.)
  • On the other side, superhero teams are a thing.
Arguably minor-spoiler facts:
  • There are alien seed things that fall from space and combine with whatever lifeform is nearest. Usually, this results in some kind of minor plant monster.
