Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you,
Justice League Infinite
In just a few weeks, I will upload the first episode of this new anthology series. Episodes will then be posted at a fairly regular rate.
Now, what exactly is Justice League Infinite?
It's a mega-crossover series, meaning that characters from any medium of storytelling can show up. Movies, TV shows, books, comics, video games. Hell, I'll even throw somebody from a stage musical here or there
Now, I know that I'm not the first person on here to try a mega-crossover. In fact, it's probably one of the most commonly used fanfiction ideas aside from OC-insertion and non-canon romances. I'd like to take a different approach to the mega-crossover, though. Rather than a single extended adventure, there will be "seasons", each with its own ultimate climax. Each season will consist of "episodes"; short stories not unlike installments in a serial.
To avoid overwhelming you guys with a tremendous amount of characters, and to also avoid the series descending into just a maddening list of names flying across the page, each episode will focus on a self-contained crossover. I'll start with just two or three franchises teaming up per episode, and as characters become more established within the ever-expanding world of Justice League Infinite, I'll start doing a few more at a time in the upcoming seasons. Of course, the big team-ups, the Infinity Wars and Identity Crises, if you will, will be saved for season finales.
New characters will appear each season, so if your favorite character doesn't turn up soon, don't worry; I have big plans for their epic introduction in the not-too-distant future.
I hope to make this series very character-driven, with your favorite heroes and villains learning more about themselves through their interactions with characters they'll probably never meet in any official media. There will be indulging in some cool team-up battles, and no shortage of it, let me assure you. But I'd like to make this series a happy marriage between the most badass and the most thoughtful and compelling possibilities of uniting so many beloved, and some more obscure, characters.
Now, at first I thought I'd just tell you who's going to appear, but I thought that would be predictable and not very fun. So, what I'm going to do instead is leave you hints as to the characters who will be popping up in the form of quotations from those characters. Feel free to speculate in the reviews section, and let me know who you're excited to see, and who you're excited to see them interact with. Oh, and these quotations may or may not be listed in the order that the characters will appear in. That's all I'll say.
"I know mine's the best, but let's hear yours, anyway,"
"There are other ways to see,"
"I have seen shit that would turn you white,"
"It's a trick. Get an ax,"
"You know, in a dog show, you'd definitely take first place,"
"You have that power, too,"
"I say, what a wonderful butler, he's so violent,"
"I miss my cupcake,"
"You want to talk to God? Let's go see him together. I've got nothing better to do,"
"Grand entrances are always impractical, that's what makes them grand,"
"You took a hooker to church?"
"You dangerous mute lunatic,"
"My name is Darth Vader. I am an extraterrestrial from the planet Vulcan,"
"Genius doesn't work on an assembly line basis,"
"If this is all a dream, don't wake me up,"
"Establish a recon post downstairs. Code Red. You know what to do,"
"All this for a loaf of bread?"
"Let's get down to business!"
"But we are good at multiplying,"
"It's little and broken, but still good,"
"Well, I think Dad has made some excellent progress today, but I think it's time we wind down now."
"He flies into the fog like a vulture in the sky!"
"Now, shall you deal with me, O Prince, and all the powers of Hell!"
That's all I have to say for now. Season 1, Episode 1 will be out in a few weeks. See you then.
