Meta-Earth Characters

I'm starting a campaign around... I dunno... November, maybe. I'm going to post briefs of characters in this thread. The characters are sourced from old supers games, my own mind and more than a few bad dreams or late nights. 

 

How does this affect you? It does not UNLESS you like a character concept and want to run with it. Use it in your own game! If you post a write up based on the brief, I'll make sure he, she, it, they, them, WHAT? is used in the Metahumanity guidebook when they are all complete. 

 

"BUT WAIT!" I hear you cry, "ISN'T THIS JUST YOU TRYING TO GET US TO FILL IN THE GAPS IN YOUR GAME??"

 

Yes. Yes, it is. 

 

You can also think of it as a community project done for laughs.

Aberris
Aberris is a Biker Demon. We didn’t know they had those. He travels around North America with Sonya, his undead girlfriend.

 

Agent Stone
Who is the woman known as Agent Stone? Seriously… cuz we have no clue.

 

Akuma
Merged with his demonic armor, Yamada Akihiro is a tortured soul… or more accurately, two tortured souls.

 

Anathema

Anathema is raw hate poured into red and black spandex. She’s a terrible human being, just like most people on this list, but she became so much worse after her kidnapping by the Mutant Master.

 

Antagonista
A powerful brick with a luchador theme, Antagonista wants you dead, and she hasn’t even met you. 

 

Aversion
The Aversion builds walls, both emotional and physical.

 

B.I.G. Yikes
The hulking rapper B.I.G. Yikes has both lethal rhymes and deadly fists. His bling weighs nearly 400 pounds all by itself.

 

Bishop Bad Ass
Former partner of Sister Antipathy, he abandoned her after she joined the Samaritans. She has since reverted once more to evil; he still isn’t returning her calls. 
Concept Stuff: 

  • Robe: Damage Reduction
  • Mitre: Mental Defense
  • Crozier: Defense & Power Blast
  • Pallium: Resistant Protection
  • Ring: Bonus Punching Damage

 

Black
A brick, partner of Blue.

  • Savvy Fighter: Versatile Brick Style. Lots of Brick Tricks.

Black Puppeteer
The Black Puppeteer is a Mind Controller who plays with dolls. 

  • Detail: Mind Control + Physical Overrides

Blast
Guess what she does. Go ahead… guess. Like a certain hero who shall go unnamed (but is actually Captain Marvel) she becomes the energy used in her attacks. 

  • Stuff: Energy Control and a High DCV. Triggered Desolidification for attacks she’s aware of.

Blood-Girl 
A murderous nineteen-year-old, Blood-Girl terrorizes New York City with her vile schemes for power. 
 

Blue
An energy controller, partner of Black. 
 

Blue Shift
The Teleporter who calls herself Blue Shift was originally coaxed into crime by her super-significant other. That villain, Shadow Fox, dominated her for a long time. She continues her villainous ways to this day, even after Shadow Fox met his end at the hands of the Stranger. 
 

Bombshell
Bombshell uses her pheromone powers to bend the male will to her own. 
 

Breeze
The Breeze is an Air-Powered mutant. She likes suffocating people and releasing them after sufficient begging and tears. Her place in Those Elemental Bastards seems tenuous at best. The others hate her with a passion. 
 

Brow
The Brow does not approve of your actions, your attire, your choice of companions, or your technique. In fact, the Brow doesn’t approve of you at all. Be gone. 
 

Cardinal Sinn
A former AR porn star, Rachel Sinn wears a sexy cassock (no, the two aren’t mutually exclusive) and offers absolution and shelter to her “flock,” a crowd of rowdy Meta-Gangers. 

  • Details: Mind Control and a mace.

Catastrophe
A terrible pun and a worse villain, Catastrophe uses her feline Powers for evil. 
 

Chanfao Zhe

Chitan

Chitan is a martial artist who can transform into an armored form.

 

Cowl

The Cowl is evil in a hood. He has appeared again after his apparent death in 1999. Hundreds of witnesses saw him blasted to atoms by the flying brick known as Prime. Prime is still expressing guilt over the killing but feels somewhat better with his old villain back from the dead. It’s a complicated matter.

 

Cosmonaut

The Cosmonaut was arrested and confined to Lockdown in 1974. She doesn’t speak to anyone. Despite being almost a hundred years old, she doesn’t look a day over 30. Her gravity gun is the stuff of legend.

 

Darc Powers

He’s evil, get it?

 

Dark Inferno

With Void-Powered flames and a penchant for cruelty, the Dark Inferno tortures his victims for secrets he can exploit.

 

Dastard.1

The man known as Dastard.1 is a flying brick, with Powers similar to, but much less potent, than Prime (that is to say, Clark Kent with the serial number filed off and a quick coat of paint).

 

Dastard.2

Dastard.2 is a sonic-powered woman with red hair and a slim build. Her screams can induce more than annoyance and frustration.

 

Dastard.3

Speedster Dastard.3 is among the fastest human beings known to science.

 

Dastard.3

Speedster Dastard.3 is among the fastest human beings known to science.

 

Dastard.4

Dastard.4 is a flame controlling psychopath. His Powers remind one of the abilities of Conflagration from the 1970s.

 

Dastard.5

A sword-wielding Meta Dastard.5 also delivers a powerful punch.

 

Dead Heavy

Dead heavy is an undead guitarist who incites violence with his awesome shredding chords and solos.

 

Destruct-o

Destruct-o is a brick. Mentally and physically; a big tough lump of misguided pain and projection. (I have been using Bulldozer from Champions for his character sheet so far... maybe there's a better way?)

 

Dice

Dice can “roll the big wheel and toss the big dice.” What he means by that is that he can alter probability, usually to give his partner Slice opportunities to attack with an increased chance of success. He wears an armored bodysuit because the way to Slice’s heart is through Dice’s chest cavity.

 

Donnie Blades

Donnie can empower his weapons to deliver terrible strikes, cutting through the toughest materials. He is a recent recruit to the Force for Evil.

 

Dorobato

Dorobato is a formless shapeshifter, little more than a cycloptic splash of mud and claws.

 

Dr. Brainstem

Doctor Brandon Stemitz was a brilliant neurosurgeon who is now a brilliant neurokinetic.

 

Dr. Nightmare

A former supervillain from the comic Tales of Terror and the Fantastic, Dr. Nightmare became real. Somehow. We didn’t ask.

 

Dr. Nycto

The bad doctor is a technological genius who uses her brain for evil.

 

Dr. Revenge

Doctor Revenge specializes in returning hero’s actions upon themselves. He wears a black battle suit under a trenchcoat. Weirdo.

 

Drag Queen

Drag Queen is very good at what he does, and what he does is not pretty. Not pretty at all. I mean… damn.

 

Dragonshard

Having earned the right to stand guard at the entrance to the Hidden City of Shi-Liang, Dragonshard promptly moved back to Brooklyn to kick everybody’s ass from Clara Barton High School.

 

E.V.I.L.

The Electronic Violence and Infiltration Lifeform is... Evil. Often works with C.A.S.S. and B.O.B. on various schemes and plots to destroy humanity.

 

Ebony Angel

The black-armored flying asshole who calls himself Ebony Angel is the chief rival of Justicar.

 

Eiji

Eiji is a young Japanese man who moves quicker than the eye can follow. His blade is just slightly slower…

 

Eli “Jurassic” Parker

This bastard can summon and control dinosaurs. Seriously.

 

Entrop

Entrop can summon and control the vast energies of the Maelstrom.

 

Evil Twin

The woman known as Evil Twin can shapeshift and mimic other Meta’s Powers.

 

Eviscerationist

The Eviscerationist generally tries to keep hospitals busy. "Respawns" somewhere else when killed.

 

Fayte

Fayte can pluck the strands of destiny (whatever those are) to affect the outcome of events. She is often hired by villains to provide an edge.

 

Felon

A cat burglar, the Felon can breach any vault you put him in front of. I say it this way because if you said it the normal way "any vault you put in front of him" then it implies that you already have the vault. The job is half done.

Very amusing. Especially the names that are dumb but the person was clearly trying to be "kewl." Or dumb because who says everyone is good at names? Special call-out to Those Elemental Bastards as being at once precisely descriptive and strongly suggestive they couldn't think of a good name and accepted what their enemies called them. Or maybe it's all GenX ironic and meta. I'm not going to ask them.

Are you looking for any particular power levels / point totals / edition of the rules?

6E. Assume each of my 5 PCs in CRISIS PATROL are 400 points. 

 

I am really looking forward to seeing people's ideas for these notes.

I had a villain named Bombshell once.  She was drop-dead gorgeous, but her name came from the fact that she could literally create bombs (they were like telekinetic energy spheres that could explode).  Obviously she would throw bombs in combat, but what made her a real headache for the heroes was that she could create a number of bombs and hold them to be triggered when she wanted.  She invariably had a bomb set someplace where innocents could get hurt if the heroes didn't stop it or let her go when they thought they had finally captured her.  She wasn't really a killer, but collateral damage is going to happen when there are explosions.  Her bombs came in multiple varieties, a concussion bomb, a fiery bomb, a flash-bang (Blast, RKA, and Flash) but it wasn't obvious which was which, so the heroes never knew if she was bluffing or not (and as a GM it gave me a way not to kill off DNPCs if something went wrong).
