The Ideal Roster

Don't mind me, just fantasizing. Stupid fanficy lore below:

What if, the realms of fiction were in fact, truth? What if the walls between fantasy and reality began to blur?

What if one day you woke up as something, someone, you weren't?

Something has gone wrong, the boundaries between worlds are cracking and melding. And our world, Reality, is caught in the middle.

Our only hope is to fight, the souls of heroes and villains alike from across time and space have melded with ordinary people, giving them their forms, their abilities.

Now, choose your new self, and join the battle, for good or ill.
