- Writeups.org is a collection of profiles for characters from genre media.
- These in-depth writeups include summaries of abilities, biographies, personality profiles and more.
- Most profiles are for characters from super-hero comics and video games.
- Writeups.org includes thorough tabletop role-playing games stats. These are for the DC Heroes RPG and many entries have DC Adventures/M&M 3rd stats.
- Most entries are extensively illustrated.
- Writeups.org is not affiliated with any publisher, studio, content company, etc.. It is written by a community of enthusiasts, and relies on donations from readers and security-vetted adverts to pay the bills.
The coverage tends to be more about obscure material, rather than the characters you already know about. So if you don’t recognise a character we’re profiling well, that’s part of the point. It’s a site for exploration.
What we do is surprisingly complex, so there’s a lot to talk about.
