Re: Super Names

 

My contribution and all my own work:

 

The team is called the Centurions and here's the roll call:

Brawl - the team's scrapper/martial artist

Challenger - an energy projector/brick (the Challenger II is the British Army equivalent of the M1A1 Abrams)

Maze - the mentallist and telekinetic (Maze means "to bewilder or confuse)

Slider - the iceman

Maverick - can absorb/redirect energy

Blitz - the speedster (German for lightning)

Saranyu - the weather manipulator (Saranyu is a Vedic weather/wind goddess)

Re: Super Names

 

Let's resurrect a really old thread! :)

 

This group consists of members recruited by its leader, Mr. Blue Sky, specifically because their powers or personality lent themselves to taking the name of a song as their "nom de crime." Each of them also has a "surprise power."

 

The Songmen

 

Mr. Blue Sky - powerful mystical air manipulator, typically wears a light blue business suit and a bowler, a good strategist but has many quirks. Surprise power: can corrode metal by forcing it to oxidize.

Bat out of Hell - looks somewhat like Man-Bat (from DC Comics) but has a nastier personality and more dangerous claws. Can fly. Surprise power: can breathe fire, short range only and all but immune to fire.

Diamond Girl - the team's brick. Strong and tough. Her skin glitters but she is not a "living crystal." Surprise power: can transform victims to diamond-like stone; the effect wears off in about an hour.

Eye in the Sky - exactly what it appears to be, an enormous flying eye. Is a demon summoned by Mr. Blue Sky. Can fire a blast. Surprise power: Can use its trailing "nerve" like a whip. Strikes damage opponents, and also weaken and nauseate them.

Nowhere Man - invisible, intangible opponent who strikes from surprise and then fades away. Extremely difficult to neutralize. Surprise power: can make other objects intangible/invisible, permitting passage through them - but must solidify himself if he does so. Can dispel the effect at will.

The Rubberband Man - stretching and limited shapeshift (can't change his own color). Similar to Mr. Fantastic except far less intelligent. Surprise power: can "snap" himself to create two smaller versions. Difficult to do and difficult to reverse (activation rolls).

Snowblind - cold and light powers. Surprise power: Fire and heat attacks work like a transform, essentially melting him. This is not fatal; he exists as a liquid (and can move in that form) until he cools down (the transform wears off).

Time in a Bottle - can stop time and duplicate himself (fugue copies). Surprise power: can create fugue copy of an opponent to fight that opponent. Very tiring (extra end) and can't use his other powers while doing so (because he must concentrate to control the fugue copy).

Re: Super Names

 

Woo, '08 and '09 were busy years. A year of night classes, which led to a year of working at Microsoft Game Studios.

 

I'm between contracts now and have some time to burn until January. Looks like we've had plenty of new suggestions. Let's see if I can't fit in a Round Up.

 

Um... Step 1: Find my old Excel file.

ickerus.gif

ickerus

 

Ickerus is named after Icarus

that Ancient Greek lad that had wings of wax fastened feathers

that in his joy had flown too close to the sun

so the wings melted

and he fell into the ocean.

 

Ickerus my 4 spatial dimensional spider has a similar story

 

Ickerus is a 4 dimensional spider projecting into a dimension beyond length, width and height.

Most of the mass in the game universe is contained in the 3 dimensional volume.

"Outside the universe" in a spatial direction I shall call "strange" is mostly empty 4 dimensional space.

 

spiral-galaxy.jpg

http://geology.com/nasa/nasa-universe-pictures.shtml

 

One might imagine the game universe as a disk galaxy where most of the mater resides.

Ickerus wandered too close to the volume mass of the game universe and fell into it.

Congrats on the good stuff.

 

A suggestion, given that you have so much free time to work on this project. ;) An indication, where possible, which are official Hero named supers, which are contributed?

 

I swiped a copy of the list and used it as fodder and inspiration for a campaign. Some of these names may have been lifted/altered from your list:

 

Americana(Team) Justice, Truth, Liberty, Patriot, Valor, Sentinel, Guardian, Anthem

Seven Deadly Sins(Team) Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Pride, Sloth, Wrath

Four Seasons(Team) Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter

Rainbow Menagerie(Team) Red Raven, Orange Ostritch, Yellow Yak, Green Gorilla, Blue Bat, Indigo Iguana, Violet Viper

Arachnaphobia: Arachnette, Black Widow, Cyb3rspyd3r, Daddy Long Legs, Dr. Spider, Recluse, Spinner, Tarantula, Trapdoor, Venom

Crime Wave: Arson, Blackmail, Counterfeit, Fraud, Kidnap, Murder, Robbery, Smuggler. Often hire Accessory, Assault and Battery for extra muscle. I decided against having a Rape villain.

Iceshrike's good. Some others:

 

Algid

Arctic

Antarctic

Boreal

Hyperboreal

Cryo-

 

some additional suffixes: "-us", "-ean". You can also use "shrike" as a suffix if you'd like - "Arctic Shrike" or "Cryoshrike" have nice rings to them. I also like "Algidus" - has a faux-Roman pitilessness to it.
