Ray Guns! Jet Packs! Bubble Helmets with fins on them!
Strap your self into your seat and set the course of your chrome-plated rocket ship into the very heart of “Mystery in Space!”
The idea is to take some of the most obscure “Atomic Age” sci fi characters and write a modern sci-fi story. Given the title, I supposed there’d better be some “Mystery” in there, and I intend the style to reference some of the retro sci-fi character of the original ‘50’s comics.
Just as the Player characters are obscure, I wonder if we should go for obscure villains as well - perhaps we should avoid the Fourth World characters; no Darkseid or Granny Goodness here. The planets of The Legion of Super Heroes are out there, but this is pre-Legion by several hundred years. It’s 2518. Man has been out in space for 300 years and this story is set far, far away from Mother Earth. Out here in the Further Depths, man is but one species amongst many. Colonies and Space Stations trade and fight with all manner of alien species. Green Lanterns pass this way only once in a Blue Moon, and local law agencies hold the fragile peace as best they can - and compete with one another for the privilege of the most lucrative security contracts.
(Oh, and it goes absolutely without saying that all characters are copyright of DC comics!)
