  1. You can't overlook the way adrenaline can make people super human sometimes. I'm not sure how one would do an adrenaline surge unless you assume that everyone has a suppressed Aid power that can kick in under extreme measures.
  2. I think this biggest problem with creating a DC cinematic universe versus a Marvel cinematic universe is that Marvel has always felt and read like a consistent universe; where as, every title in DC was practically its own sub-universe. I don't think that is necessarily a bad thing, but it does make it tough to put characters together on the screen. I don't think it would be impossible to do a DC cinematic universe, but you would probably have to go the Arrow/Flash TV series route and build it up with its own particular rules.
  3. It seems to me that villains like that should be treated as more of a plot device than an actual character and should be handled with a lot handwavium much as one might do if someone were writing an adventure around a natural disaster or something. The aren't actually intended to beaten but reckoned with.
  4. I haven't done a play by email game in ages. Which edition of the rules are you running?
  5. Code of the hero and respects the law should probably be different issues as they could come into conflict in some societies, say in Nazi Germany as an example. The code of the hero would eventually turn the character into a rebel against his government where as the respects the law would be a villain before the war but might become a hero after the war.
  6. Knowing the truth is the best way to tell a lie if the liar is telling lies in regards to a particular subject; so, in some instances, background skills like Professional Skills, Science Skills or Knowledge Skills could be substituted. As someone who would have PS: Computer Technician in real life, I can often tell if someone claiming to be a technician is really a technician or just reading scripts and tossing out technical terms just to sound smart.
  7. Dr. Moreau, master of genetics. The Phantom from Phantom of the Opera, master of poisons and traps and the black arts.
  8. Another thing to consider is the minimum qualifications to become a Valkyrie and how she rates compared to other Valkyries.
  9. I'm in OKlahoma, but I am in Bartlesville.
  10. Technically, since your game universe is its own alternate universe, naming conventions of our real universe need not necessarily apply.
  11. Perhaps, this could have been a prophesied event and there are two opposing shadow organizations working secretly behind the scene waiting for it to happen. The good organization could turn into allies and supply exposition, and the evil organization can be a source of additional complications.
  12. No matter how alien an alien species is the females look hot.
  13. A few well-placed parents who will use all their power and influence against the heroes for daring to impugn the honor of their sweet and innocent babies.
  14. I have a generally low opinion of most celebrities, and Wil Wheaton seems okay relative to most. As far as his character on Star Trek, he showed up and did his job. The fact that many fans hate his character isn't his fault. As far as the character, there is a precedent for having a kid genius character in science fiction stories. The writers could have written his character better. For that matter, it seems that the first two or three seasons were just riding on the Star Trek name rather than any strong storytelling, and most of the characters could have been written better.
  15. I think the Thundercats would apply. There would be Leo from any zodiac based villain team. There was a Jaguar with MLJ/!mpact Comics. Isn't there a villain called Snow Leopard?
