Wow, I never thought I'd see the day where I'm the first to comment on a DF story...

Try writing a story about how the Mane-iac tries to control all of Maretropolis with special nanotechnology hidden in a popular brand of shampoo.

That's my suggestion.

Or, a story about how the army tries to create an army of Ragers, like Fluttershy from her DNA, but it goes horribly wrong and the Ragers wreck the Army facility.

Yes! I really liked the power pony episode and love reading fanfic for it whenever I can find it! I'm really excited to see what this one has in store!

Good start! I am interested for more!

This is by far one of the best starts to a fanfiction, that I have ever read. Keep up the fantastic work!

The Twin

Alright a new Disneyfanatic story and I get to read it from the beginning. Great first chapter and origin for Rainbow Dash. Can't wait to see how the other give get their powers.

Yay! Superheroes!!! Some ideas:
Pinkie Pie: The Flash Origin.
Rarity: Green Lantern origin.
Applejack: Somewhat Wonder Woman Origin.
Fluttershy: Hulk Origin story.
Twilight and Spike: A Batman/Iron Man Origin.

First part is good. This deserves my watch.

The first thing I thought when I saw this is that: Huh, looks like DisneyFanatic watched some superhero on the CW.

Then I read it.

Keep up the ALRIGHT!! work dude.

You....you....whatever your name is!

That whole line I heard Dr. Drakken in my head, lol!

Here we go now ^^

Wait.....you haven't seen the Thor films?

Hey there. Thanks very much for getting this story started. I really appreciate you going to the effort. Not much I can say other than excellent job on the exchanges, emotional content, action and wrap-up in all the right places:

As for the other origins:

Rarity: Basically Green Lantern with some shades of Spider-Man finds a mysterious space rock by accident, tries to use it in order to score some quick cash at first, only to have a loved one get badly hurt (or worse) in an incident she could have averted. The severity of the guilt depends on the severity of the incident, but that fact remains the guilt is still enough to drive her to use her power more responsibly in the future .

Pinkie: The Flash (which basically means lab accident origin).

Fluttershy: The Hulk with some modifications Instead of gaining the ability to transform into a super-strong giant when sufficiently angered from an accident, it is actually the result of a half-gift/half-curse from a chaos spirit, who granted her the power as a cruel joke .

Applejack: Batman with mutant elements her parents and big brother were murdered when she was a filly and she somehow discovers she has a mental link with her rope .

Twilight: The abilities of Cyclops and Iceman with a modified Captain America element creates a serum that increases equine potential [which would be the modified Captain America element], but was only able to sufficient ingredients to make ONE batch of the serum. She tests the serum on herself and gains an amplified energy blast as well as an increased talent for ice magic [a side effect of the serum also causes her to eventually become an alicorn, but that side effect takes a few years to kick in].

The Power Ponies as a team: Basically a more super-heroic version of the canon story with some elements of the Avengers: Nightmare Moon returns, the six super-hero equines end up forming an uneasy alliance to take her down and do just good enough of a job to decide to form a permanent team (though it still takes a couple of years before they truly become friends) .

But, of course, I will freely admit that I COULD be wrong. At any rate, I will definitely be looking forward to the next chapter as soon as time and inspiration will allow.

7767479 Sorry, no. I'm more of a DC fan than a Marvel fan, mostly because DC really knows how to do animation (and that's the medium I love the most).

Nice ideas. Thought I personally picture Twilight more mixing magic and technology to become the Iron Mare.

7767206 Well I am a fan of the "Supergirl" series if that counts.

7767680 Yeah. That's cool. I can understand that reasoning.

There was a really good fic, "The Rise of Iron Mare", about Twilight becoming Iron Mare. Sadly, its author became too busy and lost the drive to continue it with time...

When I read "The God of Chaos himself" I instantly thought "Fluttercord"
DF,I know you! You don't have a heart to make Fluttershy hate Discord!
But I'm still gonna love the story,even without Fluttercord.
So,no forcing ya.

I like this so far. I'm so tracking this! :twilightsmile:

This sounds really good. I can't wait to read more.

This should be good. I wonder who's next

Hmmm... For the Masked Matterhorn's power set to be superheroic, unicorns either have to be rare or significantly weaker than in Equestria. Say low power telekenesis and light spells. Then researcher Twilight Sparkle discovers a way to tap into the ancient powers of magic unicorns once had, using an amplifier built into a headset that covers her horn.

Well, this should be fun. :twilightsmile:

Wow! Disney Fanatic, you have just combined my love of stories, superheroes, and ponies into one! And not as an Easter egg! So much YES!:pinkiegasp::pinkiehappy::raritystarry::yay:

Nice! I happen to have afew Power Ponies stories myself. One of them even has that exact same image. I hope you can read them sometime.

This is good! You're doing fine with the characters' introductions, don't worry.

Wasn't electricity already cannon in the main universe

2 chapters in one day!?!?!? :pinkiehappy:

I think Rarity's ponysona is Mare-velous. Applejack's is Saddle Ranger. That aside, great job! Can't wait for Flutters.:yay:

I don't care how you try to deny it. An earth pony of an alternate universe getting struck by lightning and making that exact pun? That right there is a Pinkie Tales reference. And I love it. :pinkiehappy:

Ooor I may be reading a little too deep into yor reaction videos. :twilightsheepish: But most unlikely the former!

7768827 Actually, Rarity is Radiance and Applejack is Mistress Mare-velous and Fluttershy is Saddle Rager.

7767630 What about live action Marvel? The MCU films.

loving this! I think that you have the superhero's personalities own so far and I love the batman v superman vibe you've got going on with AJ and Twilight! :heart:

Hello there. Thanks very much for getting the next chapter up. I really appreciate you going to the effort. Once again, excellent job on the exchanges, emotional content, action and future chapter set-up in all the right places. Yeah, I definitely sympathize with Rarity in her introduction scene (Suri would NOT be a good boss to work for) and I DO have to applaud the effort you put into the Batman/Superman vibe that shows in Mare-Velous and Matterhorn. Indeed, it DOES make sense that at least TWO of the heroes would already have been active as heroes for a while before the others got their powers (since that means those two can double as mentors to the rest of the teams).

Anyway, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that Twilight wears an outfit in her civilian identity that hides her wings so that she looks like nothing more than a relatively average unicorn in public (since it would be too easy to figure out her secret identity otherwise [there probably are NOT exactly a lot of alicorns; even in THIS world; and it would be too easy to eliminate whatever other alicorns there are as suspects, which would make wearing a mask in her hero persona counterproductive]) .

Of course, I will admit I COULD be wrong. At any rate, I will definitely be looking forward to more of this as soon as time and inspiration will allow.

7769197 And who would be a nastier boss than Suri?

Only Spoiled Rich.

Yeah. Spoiled WOULD be worse, but NOT by MUCH. :-D Of course, Svengallop would also be, if not worse, than at least JUST AS BAD.

Still, the point is well taken.

Fancy finding you here, Disney.

Yes. This will be epic. I can tell.

Her boss nodded. "Zeus' Lightning Bolt."

Might not want to take that. You might cause a war between the gods, causing Percy to go on a whole dangerous quest.

Rainbow Dash with nerd-style glasses? Now I see everything! :twistnerd:

The Twin

I was a little surprised that Applejack and Twilight already had their powers. I was looking forward to seeing everyponies origins at once. That being said it makes alot of sense for a couple of them to have powers at the start and learn their origins later on. I think Applejack and Twilight were the best to start with powers as I can see them learning how to be superheros by themselves, while the others proably need some guidense.

Can't wait to see how Rarity, Pinkie, and Fluttershy get their powers, especially how they all become a team.

P.S. Seems to me that Applejack is hiding something about her past, I've noticed that Disneyfanatic Applejack is always hiding things in these stories. Nothing wrong with that just something I've noticed.

P.P.S. When they become a team they should build a giant tower in the shape of the letter P outside of town on a little island.

7770569 LOL! I actually get the joke.

7768869 I feel extremely embarrased. for not doing a quick Google search to confiirm my critiique (though I'm on a Kindle Paperwhite so that probably would have taken like ten minutes) and extremely euphric that yoou actually responded to my comment.

I can't wait to see what you do with Flutters. If you're interested in a crossover when you're well into this we could talk something out.

nice start.
I guess thereĀ“s going to be many chapters called "Origins Part X" heh

OOOOOOH New multichapter story! God of Chaos eh, in the long description? Will there be FlutterCord

I, for one, am rather glad of the approach that at least some of the heroes are already established as heroes and already saving the day, because while reading the first chapter, I got and liked the idea of Rainbow, now having access to the awesome power of Zeus's lightning bolt, having to mingle and prove herself worthy to other heroes who have already been doing this long before she has, and has to adjust to the whole superhero scene. So this way, that idea can still be a reality. :pinkiehappy:

Anyway, looking forward to more. :twilightsmile:
