Im working on a Comic Book about two brothers named Typhoon "Ty" and Ajamis
i cant seem to think of a plot for it...thats why i need your help, i want sort of a Good vs Evil plot but in a not so DBZ way in a One Piece-ish, Naruto-ish way where its not clearly outlined as Good vs Evil anyways, i want there to be powers in the story but i just cant think of a good plot or anything to go with it

Setting: Thinking about maybe the earth being like a giant pangea or something in about 2200 A.D. or something

Characters: Ty and Ajamis and they form some sort of crew/ gang that wants to help with some cause

Plot: ??? (HELP ME!)

I was thinking something like (this is kinda gay but): Some kind of other planet invades other planets taking them over, imperialist planets and when Ty and Ajamis were young the earth was inslaved i dont know where the powers come from though

any better ideas?

does the actual planet move that conquers other planets or do invaders from a central planet go out ,and invade other planets using spaceships? also the name of the would be invaders should be Zentorians, which means "those who seek power and eternal youth".

also if earth is going to be one big contingent,I would consider revising the timeline or coming up with a reason the earth is one mega contingent again. because scientists say earth's land vaults gave way slowly over time.
I'm going to show you a link that shows what pangaia looked like. hopefully it will give you some idea that will help you explain why Pangaia exists again.

Here's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangaea

hope that helps man,

Try something like a mafia agent, that used to take kendo as a kid,realizing that he is doing alot of wrong things. He gets a samurai sword from somewhere and starts fighting the mafia.

... If you get other people to write your story for you, it will no longer be yours. Asking for someone else to give you a plot... I know you don't know better... but I am restraining myself from opening up a can of napalm on this thread.

Sure, sometimes you come up with characters first... but the best way for you to get your plot is to figure out who these characters are and figure out what kind of world they would be the most interesting in. No one has anything to gain by entrusting their own ideas to (no offense) such an inexperienced writer as yourself. We can't tell you what you are interested in, and making something like One Piece or Naruto has already been done. Creativity takes tenacity and work, if you give it to someone else to do, you'll never learn on your own; don't be afraid to write something bad on your own.

^ i think he's trying to say you should try to do it with your own ideas even if you think they are bad. Creative writing is as much about practice as it is talent. If you try lots of different ideas that come to mind then you will see the good and bad points in them and eventually form your own style ^-^.

Since you really want to use your characters then i reccomend you build a story around them. Start with simple things like hair colour then go further and further out to form a plot with depth to it.
A bad example (I'm not a writer!):
Timmy has white blonde hair--- he got bullied for this as a child--- this made him very shy-- now he's trying to proove himself-- an opportunity arrises when giant crunchyrolls take over the world--- etc ^-^
