This idea, sprung mostly from the SHVNRO, would be two separate on-line databases, one for the superheroes, and another for their supervillain rivals. Of course, a security system would have to be set up to prevent the supervillains from accessing the superheroes' site, and vice versa. Only registered superhero/villains would be able to get login names and passwords (optionally signed-up for at the SHVNRO), preventing the average Joe from finding out the secret lair of Raging Euphrates Man. The SV and SH sites would list the latest known secret lairs, any revealed secret identities, and a shop from which to order new utility belts or other needed tools. Both websites would have chat systems and e-mail services, for friends to keep in touch in the case of a spin-off series. So, next time you accidentally lock yourself out of the bat-lair, just run to the nearest public computer and you'll be good (or evil) to go!

Some basic advice for your aspiring supervillain. [bookworm, Feb 07 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       Superheroes shouldn't need internet resources. They should be out there fighting crime instead of faffing about with registration forms, trying on constumes and thinking up stupid names. Or is it just an excuse for not actually righting any wrongs ever? "Uh, sorry, I can't save the world, I forgot my password again."   

       Anyhoo, you'd end up with 13 year old hackers getting their hands on all the evil plans; and they're 1700 times worse than any supervillain.

       pot, are you saying that us superheros can't log on to the halfbakery in our spare time then? That is discrimination and its not fair. The sub-hero UnaBubba and Supercat will have something to say about that and what about Jutta the Troll Slayer herself?

       <Obligatory "what happened to Pseudonym #'s 1 and 2"post>   

       What happens if a superhero's sidekick comes under the hypnotic influence (as is bound to happen) of one of the supervillains? The supervillain would then be able to use said sidekick's username and password to infiltrate the heroes' site and be able to find out the location of the batcave equivalent. Not to mention secret information useful for taunting the hero, such as the fact that they have a birthmark on their buttocks in the shape of Nebraska.

       Baked, but I'm not going to post a link to "So you've decided to be Evil".   

       I considered giving you a + vote for the name "Raging Euphrates Man" but then I thought that would set a poor precedent.

       O.K. UB I have respectfully demoted you

       pottedstu: The site is guarded by Password Protection Man, and his sidekick, Credit Card Verification Boy. It is thus invincible to all 13 year old hackers who would otherwise cause a problem.   

       Cooler: To prevent most mix-ups, the superhero site only contains info on supervillains, and the supervillain site contains only info on the superheroes. If any said superhero or villain is dumb enough to post info about themselves on their separate web resource, then they deserve to have their identity discovered. Of course, the hypnotized super-person could be made to log into the chat system, but users are restricted from using any real names. If they do, they are instantly kicked off the system.   

       Oh, as for Pseudo 1 & 2; the three of us used to roleplay over cheetachat, but I gave that up a while back. I just used the named I had on cchat (Pseudonym_Number_Three) and used it for the halfbakery.
