Petition to The Walt Disney Company, Disney Interactive, Offbeat Creations

Please bring back Marvel: Avengers Alliance on Facebook or game consoles

On March 1st, 2012, Facebook launched the game "Marvel: Avengers Alliance" for fans to play. Developed by Offbeat Creations and published by Playdom (and then later by Disney Interactive), the player would be an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and would take two characters, heroes and/or villains, with them in story missions and Player Vs. Player tournaments. The game had alternate costumes for the heroes and villains, ISO-8s to equip their characters to make them stronger, special unlockable characters that players could earn by collecting 8 comic book covers from Lockboxes, and so on. The game's popularity spawned a short-lived spin-off, "Avengers Alliance Tactics", and a mobile sequel "Avengers Alliance 2", but a majority of fans preferred the original for its content, characters and story. However, in 2016, fans were shocked and heartbroken to learn that Disney Interactive would be closing the "Avengers Alliance" game permanently.  After four years of playing, collecting heroes and content, and so many possibilities of what could have been added into the game, the game closed down on September 30th, 2016.  To this day, many fans remain disappointed and saddened by the game closing down and would love to play the game again. We, the fans, would like to see Disney Interactive bring back "Marvel: Avengers Alliance" on Facebook and/or as a video game for the current game consoles. Fans would love to see the game return in its original format as much as possible, so Story Mode missions, Player Vs. Player tournaments, Flight Deck missions, etc., could still be a part of the game.  Fans also hope that all of their favorite heroes and villains from the original "Avengers Alliance" could return as playable characters (including Tony Stark/Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Dr. Robert Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk, The Mighty Thor, Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Susan Storm-Richards/Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/Human Torch, Ben Grimm/the Thing, James "Logan" Howlett/Wolverine, Scott Summers/Cyclops, Jean Grey, Ororo Munroe/Storm, Anna Marie/Rogue, etc.), and Player vs. Player reward characters (such as Janice Lincoln/the Beetle, Tyrone Johnson/Cloak and Tandy Bowen/Dagger, etc.) and Lockbox characters (such as Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom, Max Dillon/Electro, Herman Schultz/the Shocker, Victor Creed/Sabretooth, etc.). When the game is re-created, fans would also like to see more new heroes and villains introduced as playable characters, such as Amadeus Cho/the Totally Awesome Hulk, and boss villains, such as Alexsei Sytsevich/the Rhino and St. John Allerdyce/Pyro. Fans are hopeful "Marvel: Avengers Alliance" would also add more playable characters to the game that weren't playable before (such as heroes Nick Fury, Agent Phil Coulson, Jubilee, Namor the Sub-Mariner, Angelica Jones/Firestar, Norrin Radd/Silver Surfer and Sean Cassidy/Banshee, and villains Sam Sterns/the Leader, Adrian Toomes/Vulture, Doctor Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus, Quentin Beck/Mysterio, Raven Darkholme/Mystique and Mortimer Toynbee/Toad). For new alternate costumes for heroes, fans hope that costumes such as Spider-Man's Iron Spider suit, Spider-Man's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" movie costumes, Black Panther's "Captain America: Civil War"/solo movie costume, the original 1963 X-Men costumes as alternate costumes for the original five X-Men (Cyclops, Jean Grey, Angel, Beast and Iceman), the original X-Factor costumes for the original five X-Men, the Mr. Fix-It Gray Hulk persona and "Professor" Hulk persona for The Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four costume as an alternate costume for She-Hulk, and countless others could be added into the new "Marvel: Avengers Alliance" along with the previous existing alternate costumes (such as the Uncanny Cyclops uniform best remembered from the Fox Kids "X-Men" animated series, Daredevil's original yellow costume, the "Avengers" movie and "Age of Ultron" movie uniforms for the heroes featured in the movies, Spider-Man's black costume, and many more). Please consider bringing back "Marvel: Avengers Alliance" in some form so fans can play and enjoy it again.

Responsibilities Required From Social Media Regarding Military Romance Scamming

THE CAUSE: Military Romance Scammers are all over social media networks. These scammers use pictures, names and valor's of men and women who are actively serving in our military, retired  or are deceased. The scammers are aware how highly Americans think and feel for their military and they use this to pull at the heart strings of vulnerable men and women. Working with a retired Colonel from the United States Army whose pictures, name and child have been used in the scammers story, I have come to realize just what an epidemic this is. Unfortunately, many of the victims are afraid, ashamed, and embarrassed to come forward. Many just want to forget about the scam and move on with their lives. That is why I bring this petition to you. Due to the overwhelming numbers of fraudulent accounts throughout social media and the unidentified number of victims, we need to be the voice.  Social Media has a great amount of power, and with power comes an abundance of responsibility. THE BATTLE:  Because of the majority of military romance scammers residing in other countries, the United States has very little jurisdiction over these criminals, therefore we must work from where and what we know, and that is through the United States and our legislative system. We are looking to encourage social media sites to provide more public service announcements by way of television, movie theater ads, magazines, radio, etc. and provide additional man power to their fraudulent account tracking system as well as upgrading their security system to recognize these duplicated accounts that are recreated literally moments to hours after being deleted. Facial recognition does not solve all problems, especially when these scammers are using generic pictures (flowers, hearts etc.) on their profiles and cyber security is unable to recognize this discrepancy. OUR PROPOSAL: We are working hard to find a Champion to take on our proposal to amend the 230 Communications Decency Act of 1996 with the focus on identity theft. When this law was put into place 20 years ago there was little to no thought of the extreme type of crimes that could and or would be posted onto the social media platforms. This law gives social media a "get out of jail free" card, in other words, they are not held responsible for anything posted to their site by their own consumers. These sites are used as breeding grounds, and the social media companies are fully aware. We are not people who promote regulation, however it is very obvious, in previous news stories and with our own investigation, that self regulation is not the answer to consumer safety and security. We are proposing routine technology upgrades, additional staff to match growing population and ongoing up to date education. Items that are not successfully being done under self regulation. PERSONAL NOTE: I am a very proud daughter to a mother who served in our Navy, and brother and father who served in our Army. I also have multiple cousins, aunts and uncles who have served and the thought of our military being abused and disrespected is appalling! My mothers friend fell victim to a scammer using the pictures of the Colonel I am currently working with, thus being the reason I have become so involved. I, like many others, had no idea what an epidimic this has become and what little is being done. Social Media needs to take on more responsibility for this breeding ground than they already have, not just for the sake of the victims, but for the sake of our security, and Military whose job is to protect us. What security is social media providing them? Obviously, not the right kind. Scammers are the cancer to the social media world and it's time our companies and legislature took a stand and initiative to help prevent such illness within our military community and every day victims.
