    Default Age of Marvels: New Universe Bullpen

    Welcome to the AGE OF MARVELS: NEW UNIVERSE Bullpen

    What is The Age of Marvels and how does it work?

    The Age of Marvels (hereinafter referred to as AOM) is a fan fiction universe that started many moons ago by distinguished former CBR mod Mattbib. To my recollection, I believe this will be the 4th incarnation of the project, having gone through two forum reboots, and most recently a universal reset (in AOM continuity anyways). The way it works is that a group of CBR members volunteer to steer established Marvel characters in series they develop themselves, putting together teams, villains, relationships, artist/writer pairings, concepts and most importantly creative storylines and playing them out each month through entertaining solicits. These fanmade series share a universe and continuity, the newest version of this shared continuity is called AOM: The New Universe. AOM gives Marvel fans the chance to shape Marvel Comics their own way.

    The team of plotters (and sometimes editors) that make up the AOM: New Universe is referred to as "The Bullpen." This Bullpen page is an avenue for plotters, editors and readers to discuss the behind-the-scenes aspects of AOM, to pitch ideas, promo what is to come, show off fan made artwork, etc. It's the proverbial conference room, water cooler, and after hour bar - all in one.

    Solicits are posted once a month. Plotters write up their solicits in the proper format and send them to their editor or the EIC directly (usually due at the end of a month). The EIC will post all the solicits in a monthly post. In that post, readers (including the plotters and editors themselves) will be able to choose which books they'd purchase and usually vote in a poll for popular brand, title, etc. *You may and are encouraged to vote for your own titles* There is some friendly competition between the titles as we have given out awards/rewards in the past for top selling titles, fan favorite winners, etc. such as awarding new character slots, new title options for the winning plotter/editor, the opportunity to do a crossover or even lead an AOM wide"event." Rewards for The New Universe have not yet been established, please refer to the "AOM Rewards" post further down this first page for updates on Rewards when they become available.

    This is a shared community. The Bullpen Team works together to strengthen each other's stories and together we contribute in building a brand New Universe. Collaboration is encouraged. Plotters have "ownership" of the characters in their own books. If a plotter wishes to use a character "owned" by another plotter/title, they are asked to run the idea by the plotter that "owns" that character for approval. This helps keep continuity tight and also often leads to plotters working together and making something greater than they may have even originally planned.

    There is a running and updated listed of characters that have been "saved" in to this New Universe (See Active Character List in a post on this first page)
    If a character or concept has not been "saved" then they are not to be used without EIC approval. There may be exceptions, and certain situations will be open for discussion here on the Bullpen Page, so we will cross those bridges when we come to them.
    Example: If Galactus is not an active AOM character, then it would be impossible to be a Herald of Galactus since as of now, the big fella does not exist in this New Universe.
    Note: The addition and inclusion of more "saved" characters will be coming. This is only the beginning, our first proverbial toybox. The New Universe will likely grow as we move forward. Stay tuned.

    We are starting with a 2 title cap/limit for each plotter. AOM expansion will likely occur as the universe develops. So if you are interested in adding more books, stay tuned.

    Can you join AOM: The New Universe?

    If you are interested in becoming an AOM plotter then just let us know. This is an open universe project so to speak. We're happy to welcome new members and will help you get set up with your own AOM title.

    Some races, organizations, etc. may be selected as all encompassing. This is at digression of the AOM staff majority and up for discussion. Examples are The Skrulls, A.I.M, HYDRA, The Hand, etc. This does not necessarily mean that if selecting Skrulls it would automatically include Super Skrull or vice versa, or The Hand would include Elektra. I am thinking that the faceless, nameless AIM, Hand etc may be used but specifically established characters are not included in that grouping.
    Or we can discuss making these types of groups commonly available.

    Default AOM Rewards


    • "The Genesis Reward"

      The loot: The winner gets to tell the tale (as plotter and/or editor) of how the previous AOM Universe(s) met its demise, giving birth to the current AOM: New Universe. You may tackle the project solo or put together a team to work on this event/crossover/mini-series, a story to be creatively imagined by the winner, shaped by the winner, named by the winner, etc. Previous AOM continuity and characters are available for use during this reward within the issues of the story. The story should be told in a 4 month or less time period from start to finish, spanned over a total # of issues that is negotiable and dependent on the format selected by the reward winner, be it event, mini-series or crossover.

      Available to: The Plotter of the Top Selling Series of the 3-issue January 2019 - March 2019 solicit cycle, i.e. total accumulated sales of issues #1 + #2 + #3.

    • Plotter Appreciation Reward #1

      The loot: Series that qualify for this reward will be awarded an additional roster spot and a new Marvel character can officially added to the series' roster.

      Available to: All Plotters who turn in their solicits on time for the 3-issue January 2019-March 2019 solicit cycle, i.e. Issues #1, #2 & #3 of the new series.
      *This reward will also be made available to any new AOM start-up series after the initial launch that meets the requirement during the first 3-issue cycle of its run.

    • Buyer Appreciation Reward #1

      The loot: Plotters that qualify for this reward will be awarded a DROP/ADD/TRADE token for each series they plot for. A DROP/ADD/TRADE token can be used at any time after it is awarded, cashed in or saved at the Plotters discretion. A DROP/ADD/TRADE Token grants the plotter a one time option to either DROP/ADD a Marvel character on it's roster, which means dropping a current character off the roster (the character would then go to the available character list as unused) and replacing them with a newly added and available Marvel character of the Plotters choice. OR the DROP/ADD token can also be used to drop either the writer or artist of a series and replace them with a new and available creator of the Plotters choice. OR finally, the plotter can select the TRADE option and therefore TRADE a character or creator of one series to another Plotter/series in an agreed upon one-for one exchange i.e. character for character, artist for artist, or writer for writer. Again, you get to use the token one time but you have several options to go with.

      Available to: All Plotters who make "Buys" during each month of the 3-issue January 2019-March 2019 solicit cycle, i.e. Issues #1, #2 & #3 of the new series.
      *Although a plotter is encouraged to "purchase" their own titles, the plotter will not qualify for this reward if they ONLY pick up their own books, i.e. show some love to other AOM New Universe series you enjoy, in addition to yours.
      **Furthermore, in the spirit of friendly competition, a plotter will be disqualified for this reward if he/she buys "one of everything" during any month. We do appreciate and encourage our fellow AOMers creativity and the time they put in, but for the sake of competition and the "game" aspect of AOM, we want to encourage one another to make conscious and critical assessments when picking their monthly buys, subjective to their own opinions and likes, of course. So please try to find some honest middle ground between picking only your books and picking all the books.

    Earned Rewards will be listed here until cashed in

    Some googling for appropriate images, then some cutting/trimming, some cleaning and resizing, some recoloring to get the images more uniform.
    For example, the Moon Knight image uses the cover of Power Man & Iron Fist #87 and his Avengers Alliance profile pic.

    The Strange Tales #0 image used 15 images:
    One Sersi image and one Clea image copied over (her eye) for Sersi.
    Two Moon Knight images.
    One Hercules image.
    One Dr. Strange image.
    Four Clea images. Had a hard time finding a really good three-quarter profile image for her. I used one for her body, one for her head, and then two more for her eyes and lips.
    One black & white Colleen Wing image colored for Andromeda.
    One crystal ball clipart, colored.
    One Nick Fury image.
    One Silver Sable image.
    One Misty Knight image.
    One Legion of Super-Heroes image (for the table).
    The composed image is inspired by the cover to Batman #192.

    The new Wonder Man design used one of his old Handbook images, which I edited and recolored then added details like the gun, the goggles and the facial hair.
    I had already remade Wonder Man into a pulp character for an RPG game a year ago, so I already had that image made. I just updated it by adding his gun, which just seemed missing when I mixed it in with the other member images where almost all of them are holding a gun. And he was already in a useful pose for it, which only made the lack of his gun more noticeable.
    The pulp version was based on Woodrow McCord's look on the Original Sin Annual cover.

    The Defenders logo teaser is a collage of images clipped from the Defenders image I made, which is still yet to be revealed.
    Similarly, the Enforcers teaser images on the old thread are cropped from an Enforcers promo piece that is also waiting to be revealed.
    Both of these will be appearing very soon.

    The Enforcers emblem is two clipart images merged and colored.

    The Enforcers six-panel image is just their Handbook images (and the edited Wonder Man).

    The actual Defenders logo is from an image.
    The Enforcers logo is original and typed up in photoshop.

    It may sound like a lot of work, but it's actually quite fun and it keeps me active with photoshop.
    A big difference from my first few years of using it, which consisted of me opening it, feeling overwhelmed and promptly closing it without doing much.
    It took me years just to decypher the tool images and feel comfortable with the ui.
