Creating a Universe: Part 1

Some great discussions happen at
comic book shops, let me tell you. 
Recently, we were talking about DC’s seeming lack of ability to
establish an interconnected movie franchise the way Marvel has.  However, what is always forgotten is that
even in the standalone films, there are sly references to the other
heroes.  Consider Captain America’s
shield in Iron Man 2, or the
S.H.I.E.L.D. agents questioning whether the destroyer was “one of Stark’s” in Thor
What DC needs to do is have a story arc in place that they can use to
weave random threads into the standalone movies, the way J. Michael Straczynski

Noctua

The year is 2051.  A new strain of
virus has mutated 5% of the Earth’s population into creatures of the
night.  “Vampires,” as they’re called by their detractors, tentatively
co-exist alongside humans thanks to Aeternus Eternus, a synthetic form of
sustenance created by Biotech giant Imago Labs.  But for some, nothing can
truly replace the taste of fresh blood…fresh human blood.  As the
illegal blood trade rises, a new predator takes to the streets.  One which
even the Vampires themselves fear.  Those who have seen him and lived to
tell about it can only utter one word to describe the winged avenger, hell-bent
on ridding the world of their people.  “NOCTUA.”
Vampires and humans living together?  Yes, you’re reading that right...
