Greetings MSQ friends! How’s it going? You know what time it is…that’s right, it’s another killer Discovery of the Day! MSQ just moved into its Open Beta, meaning you can sign up for a profile and start exploring all the site has to offer right now! From Monday to Friday we bring you some of the best projects from across the cryptosphere. Whether it’s NFTs, DeFi or Blockchain games, you’ll find it all right here! Today we bring you something truly heroic…It’s MetaHero Universe!
Superheroe (and Villains) in the Metaverse!
A superhero (or superheroine) is a stock character that possesses superpowers, special abilities beyond those of ordinary people, and fits the role of a hero, typically using his or her powers to help make the world a better place…
Who comes to mind when you read the above paragraph? Spider-Man? Batman? Maybe Superman? There’s certainly a lot to choose from, and I’m sure you have a certain hero (or heroes) who resonate with you on one or more levels. Superheroes, villains, giant green bulldozers produced from gamma radiation (I’m looking at you, Hulk)—they have all played a major role in countless thrilling experiences and lifelong memories for audiences and fans across the world.
Whether it’s reading the comics, watching the epic blockbuster movies or imagining your own scenarios while playing with the action figures, superheroes and their evil-doing counterparts have become an intrinsic part of Popular Culture. But what about the Metaverse? We can’t have a Metaverse without superheroes now, can we? Well my friends, there’s no need to fear, because MetaHeroes is here!
Faster than a lightning transaction…it’s Meta Man!
A Universe for the Ruthless and the Just
The MetaHero Universe is comprised of nine planets and one moon to be owned and governed by their respective planetary DAOs. It aims to be a social gaming platform that will allow its community members to actively build, own and govern the Universe via these DAOs. In terms of the narrative, the Universe will feature a storyline that constantly evolves through Pixel Vault’s genesis project, PUNKS Comic (we’ll get into this soon!) Simply put, the comic will serve as a creative vehicle for the MetaHero Universe.
In case your astrology isn’t up to par, the nine (9) planets of the MetaHero Universe are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto!
Each planet will possess its own unique interactive environment, providing revenue opportunities to the community-governed DAOs and players via land-based sales, environmental resources, wearables, gameplay, and more. At present, planet minting is paused until further notice. Be sure to check regularly for updates on when this will resume.
The creator of the soon-to-be sprawling MetaHero Metaverse is none other than Pixel Vault, a media group focused on elevating crypto-native assets across a variety of mediums through the development of intellectual property empowered by decentralization (yeah I know, that was a bit of a mouthful!)
So earlier I briefly mentioned PUNKS Comic, which serves as the genesis collection of the entire project. It tells the crazy story of Beanie and his ordeal as he endures kidnappings, clowns, anons, and the mysterious Elvis Punksley during his quest for some of the most enigmatic relics of cryptoart history…

MetaHero Generative Identities is a collection of Hero, Villain and Mutant identity NFTs inspired by the 16 main characters that appear in PUNKS Comic. There will be up to 9,824 MetaHeroes that will be created from a variety of traits. In order to have gotten your hands on one of these guys (or gals), you would have had to have held a mint pass, and to have gotten your hands on a mint pass, you would have had to have held a comic!
All minted MetaHero characters are due to appear in a MetaHero Universe game that should be released at some point in the future. Now, let’s take a closer look at some of these volatile villains, merciless mutants and, of course, honorable heroes!
