In due time (As I type this, even) we are sorting through the character gallery and preparing to "Block" characters that do not follow the rules of the FPL. As it stands these characters will not be automatically visible in the gallery (there is a separate section for them any longer HERE) and cannot be put into fights.

We will list the characters we have blocked in this post and why, giving you both warning that they have been blocked and the chance to defend the character. Either way your character's are your responsibility, while blocked they will continue to take up your character slots. If we see your defense as being reasonable they may be unblocked, otherwise they will remain blocked and your responsibility to delete.

Currently blocked are Barney Stinson by Visorsrus *Cough* who is a blatant copy-write infringement and a Test Character.

More to come soon! Please Stand By.

Seconded.

Would that make us ToSSers then?

Still more on the way...

LOL at the reason stated for Sanos god of Everything.

But can one really dismiss Sanos for lack of quality? Galactus is after all, an interesting character.

Huzzah by the way, for Elijah, Agustinaldo and the immortal Maks. This thread would've been pretty short and boring without their efforts.

I can't wait to see what Augustinaldo's movie will be like. One of the great creative minds of our generation.

It's mostly the fact that GODS do not Street Level Character's make. The same goes for Stranglehold.

Thank you for this. I've been attempting to familiarize myself with existing FPL characters before submitting one of my own, to get a grasp of the style and what's expected, but I think it was CrazyKiller that finally broke the camel's back.

"OMG, I'll just make a character that's crazier than the Joker! No, wait, that's not enough. I know, he's crazier than the Joker and Deadpool - combined! I smell a Pulitzer..." You can actually spot that trail of thought if you read CrazyKiller's background. What's next, an armoured guy called Iron-Bat?

EDIT: Sarevok? Really? Wow, now they're not even trying.

The other choices are justified as well. One of the best ideas of late, this thread has my full support.
