No, C stands for Cookie. That's good enough for me. 

Didn't he used to team up with Downtown and Gentrification?

C Stands For--Caterwaul   Catlike speed, agility, and senses with a sonic shriek attack that can shatter steel and pulverize stone.

Never fear !

 

We can't have Quake so we will have Quack !

Yes, the man or woman who can change into a human sized Duck.

This can cause confusion to an opponent. But they can also deliver an awesome peck attack and they can fly so they are good for reconnaissance

Just as long as his real name isn't Howard. Or Mouse.

S stands for--Saturn

 

The teenage son of the arch-villain Kronos--a scientific genius with a suit of superpowered armor.  In his alternate reality, Kronos was the greatest enemy of freedom and justice, determined to impose his will upon the entire world by any means necessary.  When the heroes of that world finally caught up with him, he had an escape plan ready--a gateway to an alternate dimension, our dimension.  What Kronos didn't count on was his son taking the path through the gateway for himself--and rigging it to self-destruct so that his father or anyone else could not follow.

 

With a scientific intellect rivalling his father's, Saturn is determined to make his own way in this new world and help its people, not impose his will upon them with brute force.  With his weapons and combat training he can hold his own in a fight with agents or low-level supers, but prefers not to fight at all, using his intellect to solve any problem and defeat any criminal.  Life is going well for him so far--but there is always the possibility that his father will come looking for him.  It's not something he cares to think about.

OK!  Nice!  But we need a few more Power Armour and at least one more Brick.

Remember all these people will have Until basic training and some gear (  So Optic will have a Blaster and minimum Until armour)

V stands for--Valoress

 

Standing six feet two inches, possessing the strength of hundreds and resilience and fighting ability to match, she thinks nothing of charging into battle against any foe, no matter how great the odds against her or powerful the enemy.  She is perhaps the most "militant" of the team, insisting on rigorous and regular combat training, and strict codes of conduct for its members.

W is for Whalesong. A Norwegian oil magnate who was a victim of a oil platform accident who was "adopted" by whales and learned to live like them as well as being able to control them.  Think of him as an aquatic Tarzan.

 

 

X is for X-Factor.  A Scot able to wield both chaos and order magic depending on what needs to be used in order to maintain balance at that moment. He takes the "One Who Knows" stance way too seriously.

 

I have Y and Z but I want to see others ideas.

W   has some interesting ideas and he is another aquatic team mate

 

X    What is meant by Order magic and Chaos magic?  I find terms like that SOOOOO nebulous that they aren't really descriptors at all!   

I love the idea, and a mage type is needed for the team.

Y stands for--Yankee Lightning

 

The descendant of the World War II era superpatriot U.S. Jones, Amanda Addams (USMC) volunteered to represent the United States in the Alphabet Squad.  No superpowers, but an exceptionally able hand-to-hand combatant and weapons expert, able to use any weapon better than the soldier or agent from whom it was taken.  Many of the other members are suspicious of her pro-USA mindset, but she is determined to prove that American patriotism is not synonymous with bigotry or aggression.

So basically the "Shining Hill" America and not the "Ugly American" America.  And the team can use another 'Normal' that has no powers to mess with.

 

I will expect she gets on real well with Valoress!

Z is for Zero.  He has zero powers.  None.  Nada.  Zilch.  Zipareeno.  However, he is extremely well-trained, well-equipped, very skilled, and in excellent shape.

OK.  Another super normal.  Well the team needed a couple!

 

So done.  Now to stat them!

Any other suggestions for both before I put it into Hero Designer?

With Belle, while the French language aspect is great, why not use somewhere else it's spoken? She could be Angolan, Haitian or New Caledonian. Or Vietnamese.

(Come to that, I like Vietnamese. Good reason for her to have other languages and not perhaps what would be expected by someone being pursued by a P.I.)
