Group Info

Superhero fiction is a niche genre and it can be difficult to find in the sea of regular literature and fan-fiction. This is a group for writers and readers, and general lovers of superheroes. We will exclusively showcase literature featuring superheroes. This includes original characters, fan-fiction, and fan-character stories. We'll also accept literature-related pieces such as scripts, articles, etc. All ranges of talent welcome! At this time, we do not accept general superhero art, but we do allow story illustrations and book covers.

:bulletblack: Membership is open and automatically approved. Feel free to join or devWatch the group.

:bulletblack: We expect all members to be respectful to other members and the admins. We don't like to ban people, but members will be removed and/or blocked from the group for aggressive behavior.

:bulletblack: Remember, in order to get feedback and comments, it's polite to give feedback and comments. We encourage members to frequent the works of other members.

Submission Policy

:bulletblue: Submissions are open. They must be approved by one admin, but that should generally happen within 24-72 hours of submission.

:bulletblue: Stories MUST contain a superhero or sidekick. Superhero is defined as being a costumed or themed character, with or without super-powers. This can sometimes be a gray area, but for clarity, this group was created to help writers of superhero fiction get their writing seen. There are numerous groups for Pokemon and video-game characters, and thus those characters are not considered superheroes by our definition. Think Batman, the Green Hornet, etc.

:bulletblue: We will accept entries with mature themes (meaning sex and blood), but they MUST contain a mature filter. Sorry, but we have kids and we want to assure safe-surfing for them and our members.

:bulletblue: We ask that you submit to the correct folder. This helps us all, as it makes it easier for readers to find the specific type of story they are looking for. Here is a run down of the folders and what does and does not belong, in order to help you. [link]

kryptonite kidi.
"I'll be batman,
and you can be my robin,"
you said with a smile.
(it's just like you
to want to play the hero.
you speak when 
someone pulls the string on your back:
you have all the right words.)
when I was a little girl,
I wished I could be a superhero.
all I needed was a radioactive spider,
or hidden powers
or super soldier serum.
I grew up in pursuit of these,
and became an adult when I realized
that I'd never find them.
I miss the days when I believed 
all I needed was a cape to save the world.
I knew you weren't the one
because somehow I still wanted a hero,
somehow I still believed they existed:
one person who could rescue the city
all in a day's work.
I knew you had the framework
but not the heart,
a branchless tree
with no roots.
sometimes I stand on the edge,
wishing I could fly
but knowing I never will.
I think it's enough to pretend 
I'll learn how one day.
(in other words,
I'm not your sidekick.)
Intelligent DiscussionThere was only one seat left in the bar. Richard slid into it without a second thought, without even glancing at either of his neighbors…until he heard the one on his right call for the bartender at the same time as him. Then they both looked.
The patrons immediately around them hushed. Over by the door, the bouncer looked quietly attentive.
“Is there a problem, gentlemen?” the bartender asked, a clear warning in her tone. Richard gave his neighbor another side-long glance, saw his own narrow-eyed, wary expression reflected back at him, and offered the first tentative flag-wave of a truce.
“No. I’m here for a vacation.”
“…me, too,” said the other, and since there were still no other empty seats to be had, they settled back into their adjacent stools and did their best to ignore each other as the rest of the bar relaxed around them.
Unfortunately, ignoring your arch-nemesis, an arch-nemesis apparently on vacation i
Ben Grimm ReflectsHow good it is to have no choice.
Of course I would have answered "no"
if asked if I would be the Thing,
my skin like rubble, orange rock.
I am a monster with blue eyes.
Yet how could Johnny, Sue, and Reed
go out and save the world alone?
Who else can swing a fist like mine?
So now in my three-fingered hand
I firmly hold a fine cigar.
The "no" I had no chance to say
is in the smoke I blow away.

So I'm five chapters in on my story, Haven's Children. Can I ask for suggestions on how to improve my writing. This story and these characters have been floating in my head and I'm worried that it is preventing the stories from being as good as they could be.

My apologies to any one who has been kind enough to try and read "The first time I used my powers" and then found that they can't. I'm not totally sure what I've done wrong with it and may have to re upload. Sorry. :(
