Hello, DC Universe users. I have commandeered this peon’s account in order to bring you this announcement. Who am I? I would say that I am no more or less than the single greatest criminal mastermind of the modern era, but I assure you that I am quite a great deal more. If, for some reason, that still does not make my identity clear, I am Lex Luthor.
In this thread, I or one of my esteemed colleagues in corruption will present you with a challenge every day. We will give you a goal and certain limitations on the available methods of creating that goal. You will present your master plan, which, while no doubt inferior to any I, Lex Luthor, would create, will be of great interest as I search for fellow criminal masterminds with whom I can collaborate in my various enterprises.
The peon, BatJamags, will select the best plan when each prompt is posted (ideally around midnight EST) and every Saturday (other than the 13th, as we will only have completed one prompt by then), the submitter with the most daily victories will present their own objective. Well, BatJamags could do that, or I could reveal his Secret Identity to the world. I imagine he’ll be cooperative.
And now, your first objective, and one near and dear to my heart: You will kill Superman. You are permitted to deploy no more than three of what those sanctimonious so-called ‘heroes’ would so simplistically term ‘villains.’ They must be reliable, controllable, and loyal enough to execute the plan with no backstabbing or other unnecessary difficulty. To put it more simply, you may use Doomsday if you can control him. You may use Brainiac if you have a reason he shouldn’t kill the rest of us.
[So, stepping out of character for a moment to thank kingofspeedsters for his awesome thread “NAME THE CAHRACTER(S)…BEST FIT FOR THE SCENARIO!!” and for giving me permission to create the evil equivalent. The rules here are the same as there. I set an objective, limit the number of characters, and turn you loose to create a plan. You can read through that thread to get a sense of the general format. I’ll be adding a bit more restrictions than kingofspeedsters usually does to offset the higher power levels you tend to see with villains (stuff like the “has to be controllable and reliable” in today’s prompt).]
