About

Metahumans are humanoid beings which individually possess extraordinary abilities. These beings have opened up boundless possibilities to humanity, holding the potential for further advancement of the human race. Supersonic speed, invulnerability, superhuman strength are tamer examples of what abilities these metahumans possess and recent findings have uncovered metahumans with more complex abilities such as the control over concepts such as time or natural forces such as gravity. Some metahumans even have the power to dominate minds.

These beings have proven themselves to be a great asset but an even greater hindrance to humanity as a whole as times began to change, no longer were metahumans considered as beings to be revered, but instead feared or tolerated. As the numbers of these beings grew, so did those who sought to abuse their gifts. In retaliation, metahumans took to vigilantism in order to combat a new threat, claiming themselves to be heroes of the people, unaware of the destruction wrought by their endeavors.

This lack of discipline had warped the once honorable concept of a ‘hero’, now the term is sullied with glory hounds and amateurs who roam the world to endow themselves with fame and fortune. The organization has begun to address this issue by developing a program that will set an example for the still acting heroes and those who wish to be. As such, the recruitment of this program will not include metahumans but instead simple human beings, it is believed that through this regime that the new trained heroes will be more openly welcomed by civilians who will be able to identify with them more than the active metahuman ‘heroes’.

Project Initiation will be turning average, non-metas into metahumans themselves through [DATA REDACTED] and hone their abilities within simulated events within the Proving Grounds facility before being sent out on the field where they will apply their knowledge and skill against actual threats and interact with other metahumans.

Synopsis

The Coalition of Governments has decided to launch a project to train ordinary individuals into metahumans through classified methodology. The purpose is to create more stable 'heroes' who are more equipped to maintain order with hopes that the initiates will be able to appeal to the public and mend public perception of 'heroes'.

Heroes in Name is a roleplay hosted on the Pokemon Showdown! Roleplaying room as well as the Still Need Heroes Discord Server. Try checking out the Heroes in Name Google Doc.
