We are a moderate to intermediate collaborative writing site based on the X-Men and Avengers movies with a healthy mix of the comics as well.
Our plot is based within the events of the movieverse, and despite our focus on the X-Men and Avengers, we are open to facets of the comicverse, and welcoming of other marvel characters.
- - -
MOVIES IN PLAY: X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Avengers Assemble, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier
"Agents of Shield" characters -- with the exception of Phil Coulson because in the timeline he was killed in "Avengers Assemble" -- can be playable characters in Believe in Heroes so far as the characters and not the events in AoS are included, because AoS is NOT canon in our story.
BELIEVE IN HEROES!
WE ARE BACK!
First, our apologies for being a bit inactive the past couple of months, but as I am sure is the same for everyone, real life had gotten in the way of the fun that is writing stories between us.
Second, I am now in the process of rebooting the site with new stories and new ideas, not only for the new main plot of the site, but also to have other cool things in Out of Character area.
Third, I do ask a bit of help from you cool dudes and dudettes to get the site running again as it was before, extremely active and fun to spend time around in. Everyone is going to get a PM soon so I can tally who are remaining and then see which one of you are willing and able to help out in order to make Believe in Heroes awesome again.
Fourth, I big thank you from the bottom of my heart to those who had been asking when the site is going to continue.
Let's do this guys and gals! Let's have fun again!

No need, I have gotten two fairly decent looks at this rate, might have even committed it to memory at this point if you weren't... well, mortal. My timing really is impeccable, wouldn't you say, Agent Romanoff?
Ha, ha! What the hell do you want? I know you are not here and you can't take over my mind. So if all you wanted was your pervy fix, have a good look and then make like a fly and buzz off... I am busy taking a bath.
Yes, I see that. Very, very, clearly. Well, no, I don't, but I do see the before and after takes of taking a bath. As for why I am here? You seemed intent on getting my attention, darling, and I do so love attention.
Oh? Yeah, well... you know how much I like to draw attention to myself. You more than any man should know this, as you have seen me naked more times than any man... well... that is a lie. But I think you like it. Anyway. Did you like my songs? It was a gesture of love.
'twould seem, and do bear in mind my disdain for the human race as a whole when I say this, that I don't... despise you entirely. It turns out there are members of your kin so much more, well... I would not say disdainful, but... dull. A far worse fate in my eyes. To be boring.
Oh baby, you say the sweetest things. But I guarantee you one thing. I have been called many things... many. But dull is not one of them. To be honest, you are quite amusing to me. I still want to beat you bloody, but still I admire your panache.
Oh, the feeling is very much mutual, darling, as much as I might claim to not despise you entirely, I would still sooner see you dead. However, there is no denying the appeal that after a thousand years living among morons, it is on Midgard that I would find someone who is actually in possession of... wit. After a few centuries, you feel as though you are slowing down just to keep up, if that makes a scintilla of sense.
Good. For a minute I thought you were going to get all mushy and lovey with me. I like this better. And yes, it does makes sense, I suppose. You are a challenge Loki. I don't care about the whole Asgardian's are gods bit. The more you threaten me, the more exhilarating it becomes. Can't wait for another battle of wits between us. But tell, seeing you find appropriate to do your little magic trick with me. What have you been doing since our adventures at SHIELD, Asgardian?
My darling White Queen! Superb! Unfortunately, I am unable to determine where I am, but I can tell you who is in the immediate vicinity, if that is of any assistance to you?
I do believe the Man of Iron is here... the one they call Stark? At least I think it is him, I do not know of many others so altruistically inclined who emanate such bright brainwave patterns. And yes, that is as close as you will find me coming to complimenting a Midgardian in the truest sense.
There is also... another... a woman... her brainwaves are... odd... constantly moving, constantly changing. It is as if the activity of her brain starts and starts and starts again, without ever ending. I cannot pinpoint her? Do you think you can?
I am here, my soon to be King. Let me concentrate for a moment... You are in Stark Tower... and yes... I can sense the woman. Her mind is quite slippery, I have felt minds like this before. Oh... a regen? A mutant? No... she is not.
No matter. Oh my Loki... why has this happened to you? But again, worry not. I know now where you are... and I shall get you out. But you now have to tell me, who are your followers, so I can seek them out and ask for their aid?
How did it happen? Revenge played a rather small part. While being ignored played a rather big one. In essence, yours truly got greedy.
They call themselves the 'Brotherhood of Mutants'. I am certain that you know of them? They have a tendency to make a lot of noise, based on what I have heard and learned of them. They are currently residing at that wondrous abode you furnished me with. There you should find a sapphire skinned shape shifter, and possibly an amphibian whose scent leaves a lot to be desired. You shall learn to love him! There may also be an interfering red head skulking around somewhere, if she is not skulking around here already.
Oh Loki... We need to talk about reckless actions. After I get you out.
We'll have dinner and we can talk about it. Now... the Brotherhood is back? How quaint. Then it means all this time you took refuge with them? That is just sad, but worry not, now you are with me. Still, I suppose, they could do much worse than you as their leader. Oh wait, they did, when they were led by that pompous ass Erik.
You aligned yourself with that collection of losers?
Anyway, I shall contact Mystique. Toad, no chance in hell. Yes sweetness, I know about them. Mystique will do. And my lord, please... do something about your recklessness... please... for me?
Alas, the Chitauri were unavailable, and could not invade the middle world for a second time. Something about being reduced to ash the first time? That, and I did not anticipate revisiting, which left me with little time to prepare. The Brotherhood was the only option that rustled in the undergrowth.
I shall try to curb my enthusiasm from now on if it makes you happy, but do not be surprised if I fail, I always fail in such impossible pursuits.
You say the strangest things, love. I think that is why I like you. I have no idea who the Chitauri are, so I suppose another group of useless allies? And please, Loki... never say you fail. Just... curb it a bit. I will get you out soon, sweetness. Just be ready... you will know when it is time.
I am here, Loki... miss me much? My, my... you look worst for wear, but I shall fix that when you and I are back together. I come bearing good tidings. I shall get you out of here... but you need to follow my instructions.
My darling Emma! Missed you is not the half of it. These... urgh... Midgardians have me reduced to 'lock picking' in an effort to escape these confounded holdings. I do not believe I did it correctly. Is the instrument I am expected to rely upon in order to free myself supposed to become stuck? If it is not, then another dagger requires replacing. That is two in a short space of time. Instruct away, enchanting one. The sooner I see the back of this cage the better.
The dagger can be removed once we open the cage and if not, I shall buy you a whole set of swords, daggers and cooking knives for you to play with. Forget that for now... I shall bring with me Mystique. She shall use her unique ability to gain access to your cell, while I will distract our good friend Stark and get from his mind the security codes. You look unwell, love... but again, I promise, I shall make you better... soon.
And in what guise can I expect to see my crafty shape shifter? Please do not say a small female brunette. I fear I have become unreasonably adverse to such physical characteristics.
Unwell? It has been a rather irksome case of one betrayal after another as of late, and I have had it up to... well, if I could raise my arm right now, I would demonstrate how 'up to here' I have had it with the backstabbings and the pain. I shall furnish you with the information as soon as I am able to pace in more than just a circle, my darling.
Tony Stark's CEO and trollop on the side Pepper Potts. I know enough of her to brief Mystique so she can do a more than passable imitation of the woman. The only worry I had was Stark's A.I. butler... but notice I said 'had'. I found out the exact time and date when the little machine will be down for upgrades, so that is our window... a small one. I cannot fool a security camera with an illusion, but I can create one in Stark's mind to make him see what I want him to see: you in the cell, while you and Mystique walk out. I shall also erase from his memory the whole encounter.
My darling Loki... Do not burden your head more than already is. As I told you, I do not believe in betrayal. It is the weak's way to feel powerful. The day you are more a burden than... the pleasure you are for me... is the day I will just end our alliance. I would not betray you. But fear not, I do not see the day you would not be a pleasure for me.
Ah yes, the unassuming red head. That should not be too difficult. A shame I do not have the energy to take the form of Stark to better ease our escape, or to leave an illusionary copy of myself behind in that cage. I do hope you can manage it all yourself, darling. I am not sure what it is your kind draws on to use such abilities, but at the risk of sounding like a complete hypocrite, but a hypocrite that may also be slightly concerned for your wellbeing, do no overextend yourself. Intelligent people often pose a difficulty for me when I attempt to take control of their minds. I am uncertain as to whether that is a hindrance to you as well? But then again, I suppose, it is Stark.
I had completely forgotten about the JARVIS. How could I... but... it functions in the capacity of a sentinel as well? I must learn how such items come into being and procure one!
Maybe I am being naive, or hopeful, I do not now, nor do I really know the difference anymore, but I do not believe you would betray me, nor do I intend to betray someone who has been nothing short of a delight to me. It is an oddly comforting notion, but pay me no mind. I am simply dwelling, I dwell when I am left with little else to do, and bars have a tendency to leave me with little else.
Actually, my lord... that is exactly what you going to have to do. You would need to muster all your Psionic energy into shapeshifting into Stark, so "Potts and Stark" would be seen leaving the building together. As for me, do not worry your beautiful yet trouble mind. I can produce the illusion and delete the encounter from Stark's memory. Unless he has Psionic Barriers, which would make it difficult, but not impossible, I can get into that scrofulous mind of his. Besides, I am not taking control of his mind, I will merely trick his mind into believing something that is not happening. It is called Reality Perception manipulation, which is a powerful variant of telepathic illusion, although it is a bit risky to me, it would not be so in this case. I shall explain to you my powers once we are together and in better setting.
Fear not, my good... maybe I should say my naughty... Loki. You shall be freed and then we shall continue our lofty goals.
I suppose I have assumed worse forms. He is such a short man, but at least he knows how to dress, which is more than can be said for his fellow Avengers.
I do not believe he has psionic barriers, but that object embedded in his chest made it rather difficult for me to gain access to his mind before, but, yes... regale me later darling, when we are finally reunited.
Loki... We are here. I am going to link your mind with mind and Raven's. I shall speak to both of you as I get the codes from Stark. Please remember the plan and follow it through. I cannot wait to... negotiate... with you again, my darling.
Loki, Mystique... I am reaching the top floor of the Tower, ready to meet with Mr. Can Man. There is someone else with him, but it is too late now to back out. The person's mind is strange, but still the illusion can work on her too. I will give you the codes soon...
Darling, I am sorry I left you at the Villa alone, but I had to return to New York and take care of somethings concerning the company and also the renovations of the Hellfire Club's building and the impending party. Talking of the party, if you are still going to do what you told me, the whole disguise thing, I bought several outfits that you can use. I am going to try my best to fly back tonight, love. Have you missed me much?
At what point during our arrangement did I strike you as the 'clingy' sort? Do what you must, darling, no need to report back to me. But do... you know, hurry back.
How are the renovations going? We experienced similar issues pertaining to just such a problem after a spot of bother with some Dark Elves, after which point my brother decided to finish off their mess. Took me the best part of three months to erect those columns in the palace again.
Alas, I cannot very well attend looking as I usually do being branded a... what is the term the humans use? War criminal? Well, the title tells me enough, and I imagine the last thing you need is to attract the kind of unwanted attention such a status will likely entail.
Just wanted to make sure you noticed my absence, darling. I would be sad if you did not. The renovations are almost complete, so we will be right on schedule for the party. True, I had to spend double the amount to get them to work around the clock, but it was worth it. You are going to love how it looks now. A bit of old times mixed with the new.
Indeed. We cannot have people asking too many questions, especially as the Hellfire Club is supposed to be secretive. I do not mind your choice of disguise, perish the thought. In fact, in a way, turns me on. Just letting you know I did buy a few ensembles for you to try and chose the one you like the most. I also bought a few for myself... well... Mimi did, I have been unable to even leave this damn office. I have invited a scientist I need to speak with to the party, so for a while you will not see me around. But worry not, I plan to celebrate with you a lot.
Much appreciated, darling. You busy yourself with that... scientist? It seems I have something of a date with a certain blonde to attend to, and no, that was not my way of euphemistically saying my brother will be in attendance. I have invited Amora. Worry not, if she breaks anything or anyone, I shall take full responsibility for it, and bury her at the roots of Yggdrasil myself. Who knows, though? She might have her uses, but I shall let you determine that. Her magic is not nearly as powerful as mine, nor are her skills a match for mine. My equal in the Nine Realms was her tutor, however.
A date, eh? My, my, Loki... already you change me for someone else. And another blonde to boot. I should have known you were a pernicious player. But teasings and jests aside, the name sounds familiar. Was she not the one that literally buried a knife on your back? You are more than meets the eye my lord Loki. Hmmm. Sure, why not? I wonder what she does want with you. But I have no problem granting her an audience if you ask it of me. Personally, that would be the only reason for me to even bother. You know I cannot deny you anything... you bad Asgardian.
What can I say? I have a soft spot for blue eyed blondes, darling. Yes, that is the one indeed. I do not believe she wants anything of me, she never has, unless I happened to be in the form of my brother. What I think she wants, or needs, is allies, and that at least counts for something. She will not be as inclined to stab those she needs in the back, and if she does... well, her stupidity will never be in doubt again. I shall send her your way, once I am through with her. I expect nothing short of grovelling on hands and knees, and if she does not satisfy me in that regard... well, she can look for someone else with a soft spot for gorgeous blondes with beautiful blue eyes.
Oh? Someone more gorgeous than me? Now I am intrigue. Well, we shall see. If you know me... and you know me better than any being in the universe... I do not suffer foolishness lightly nor I have patience with people who lacks vision. Backstabbing is boring and useless. I will talk to this source of your infatuation and see what she brings to the table. Do advise her not to bore me or anger me. I am not in the mood for drivel and silly things.
What part of 'get in, and get out as fast as possible' did I not make clear? Was it when I added the part about my brother? It was a bedroom joke. Odin's beard... Petrol! I did not think I would have to tell you, is fast not your... what is it the Midgardians say? 'Thing'?
Babes... are you up for a little mischief? I just received a call from none other than Tony Stark and he actually, the fool, asked for my help. There is an Asgardian that seemed to have lost their memory and Stark thought to ask for my help. How adorable. Care to go yourself instead?
An Asgardian? So that's what that was? I thought it was a rainbow... I have been living on Midgard for much too long. Lost its memories? Give me a moment so that I can adjust my perceptions so as not to view that as an improvement... alright a moment longer... uh! Never mind. So, Mr Stark wants our help, does he? Oooh, my ego is practically tingling, my curiosity even more so. Amnesia you say? And the Lady Mimi said that was just a thing that happened in those bad televised serials she watches. Oh, this I cannot pass up! I presume it would be best for me to travel to Stark Tower in the guise of Regan? Never mind, do not answer that, darling, since it has just emerged as the more entertaining option. Leave it to me!
Loki, what in blazes is happening? I sense... wait. Is that a dragon? What did I tell you about binge watching Games of Throne? It is not good for you... anyway, imagine my surprise when I reconnected the mind link and see the Hellfire Building under attack. Oh and by the way, Emma Steed sends her regards and says she cannot wait to meet your acquaintance, but that can wait... what is happening?
It is the only televised form of entertainment in your world that I can follow. There are now six parts that I have to catch up on! Personally, I feel the pacing has dwindled quite substantially, though. You know, the Lady Mimi made me watch 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' the other day, right!? Imagine my surprise when I learned there were Earthlings that did not have to do anything to obtain that level of infamy.
Anyway, to the small matter of the attack. I have it all under control, darling. Rest assured. No foliage, no upholstery, or windows, or... alright, some of it has seen some manner of damage, but it is all totally reparable. Romanoff is leading the attack from what I can gauge, and I think, and by that I mean I know, she is after the sceptre. But like I said: under my complete control. Wait... there is another Emma!?
I do not care Loki! That show is definitely not good for you, nor is Mimi exposing you to Reality TV trash. I shall have a word with her. Nevermind that. I am not concern about the building but about something that it is in the building. The Frostbyte System. What are Ophelia, Doom and the others doing?
Oh yes, her name is Emma as well and as the original Emma, me, she is quite... well... something you would like a lot. would you like me to send you an image of her?
An image? Hhhmmm... very well, but if you can, try and take one that is not too distracting. If you cannot... I will not complain.
Lord Doom's on the roof performing his thunder-and-lighting routine for Captain Rogers and... some fellow in a cat suit, and the Lady Ophelia appears to be tussling with... someone else.
My apologies, darling, but some of these people appear to be capable of evading my abilities. The cat is one, and there is someone else whose brainwaves do not even register. I can sense that my beloved black consort is exerting herself, but not upon whom. It is as if her opponent does not even exist.
The Lord Christian... oh boy! It appears he is going toe to toe with Agent Barton.
I shall order Doctor Octavius to guard it. He has been liaising with you on the project, yes? In any case, I am uncertain as to who he is tackling anyway, aside from that spiderling and another I do not recognize, while Hela appears to be having fun with our most recent acquaintance, the Lady Sif.
Brainwaves do not register? Hmmm... that sounds like Pryde. She has the ability to phase herself through solid matter, sad that she doesn't just phase herself out of existence. Curious that none of the other X-men are with her on this, by what you have told me. Tell Ophelia to try to use an energy field... maybe Octavius or Doom might assist her on that. They have created a few things using Frostbyte, after all.
Sif as well. Talk about ungrateful. So it seems that the Avengers are in on this, but not all of them. By your account only half of them and the rest are more or less unknown entities. Interesting. What did you do to that redhead, Loki, that makes her be so obsessed about you? I mean, naturally, you are a price any woman with taste would want, but talk about really been obsessed! Anyway, keep me informed and in the meantime, speaking of prices, I am looking at Emma Steed just now... enjoy.
