Hero Goes to the Movies (or TV Shows)!

Recommended Posts

Hiya Gang,

I was over at another forum and they have a thread that statted out various characters from movies and TV. That's when I thought, "Gee, why don't we do that over at the Hero boards?" Thus this thread :)

 

The rules are simple. Anyone can post a character, so long as it's from a movie or TV Series (Cartoons & Anime included). If you have HeroDesigner, please use the Code Export and also post the HDC file in your post. If you can, also include a photo using Tags.

 

As an added challenge ... please try and post something that's not at Mike Surbrook's site. That way, if Mike wants, he can post characters appearing here there :)

 

I'll start with the next post ...

Background: Gregory House was born to John and Blythe House on June 11, 1959. His social security number was issued in Ohio. House is a "military brat". His father served as a Marine Corps pilot, and transferred often to other bases during House's childhood. House presumably picked up his affinity for languages during this period, and shows a level of understanding of Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin, Japanese and Hindi. One place his father was stationed was in Egypt, where House developed a passing fascination with archaeology and treasure-hunting, an interest which led him to keep his treasure-hunting tools well into his adulthood. Another station was Japan, where, at age 14, House discovered his vocation after witnessing a buraku doctor solve a case no other doctor could handle.

House loves his mother but hates his father, who he claims has an "insane moral compass." House avoids both parents and spends an entire episode dodging a night out with them. At one point, House tells a story of his parents leaving him with his grandmother whose punishments constituted abuse. He later confesses that it was his father who abused him.

After receiving his undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins University, House studied at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine until classmate Phillip Weber reported House for copying exam answers from him. Following his expulsion from Johns Hopkins, he applied and was accepted to the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor where he received his M.D. and met Lisa Cuddy, his future boss. There is a degree of sexual tension between the two characters due to a one-night stand in the past.

About ten years before the series began, House entered into a relationship with Stacy, a constitutional lawyer. They met at a "Doctors vs Lawyers" paint ball event where she shot him. Five years later, he suffered an infarction in his right leg, which went undiagnosed for three days due to doctors' concerns that he was exhibiting drug seeking behavior (House was also unable to diagnose his own infarction). An aneurysm in his thigh had clotted, leading to an infarction and causing his quadriceps muscles to become necrotic. House had the dead muscle bypassed in order to restore circulation to the remainder of his leg, risking organ failure and cardiac arrest. He was willing to endure excruciating post operative pain to retain the use of his leg. After, House was put into a chemically-induced coma to sleep through the worst of the pain. Stacy decided to choose a safer surgical middle-ground procedure between amputation and a bypass by removing just the dead muscle. This resulted in the partial loss of use in his leg, and left House with a lesser, but still serious, level of pain for the rest of his life. House could not forgive Stacy for making the decision, so she left him.

When Stacy makes her first appearance in the series, she is married to a high school guidance counselor named Mark Warner. Although House and Stacy grow closer together and reunite briefly during the second season, House tells Stacy to go back to her husband, which devastates her. Her character has not returned to the show since.

 

Personality: House's character frequently shows his cunning and biting wit, enjoys picking people apart, and mocking their weaknesses. House accurately deciphers people's motives and histories from aspects of their personality and appearance. Dr. James Wilson once states in the episode "DNR" that while "some doctors have the messiah complex — they need to save the world", House has "a Rubik's complex" — he needs "to solve the puzzle." House typically waits as long as possible before meeting his patients. When he encounters his patients, House shows an unorthodox bedside manner and uses unconventional treatments. However, he impresses them with rapid and accurate diagnoses after seemingly not paying attention. This skill was demonstrated in an episode where House diagnoses an entire waiting room full of patients in under a minute on his way out of the hospital clinic.

His crankiness is commonly attributed to the chronic pain in his leg (as a result of the infarction) for which he requires the aid of a cane. According to Stacy Warner, his former girlfriend, he was "pretty much the same" before the infarction, and his boss Lisa Cuddy claimed that after the surgery he was "an egomaniacal, narcissistic pain in the ass - same as before." For his chronic leg pain, House takes Vicodin (hydrocodone and paracetamol (acetaminophen)) on a daily basis, and as a result has developed an addiction to the drug. He concedes that he has an addiction, but says that the addiction is not a problem because it does not interfere with his work.

House openly talks about and makes references to pornography. In one episode, he returns the flirtations of a female under age patient ("Lines in the Sand"), and is seen on at least two occasions engaging the services of a prostitute ("Distractions"). He is a staunch atheist and openly mocks any colleagues or patients who express any level of belief in any aspect of religion. House frequently says "Everybody lies," but jokingly remarked that he was lying when he said that in the first season finale. House criticizes social etiquette for lack of rational purpose and usefulness. In one episode, he explains how he envies an autistic patient because society allows the patient to forgo the niceties that he must suffer through.

House is a strong non-conformist and gives little regard to how others perceive him. Throughout the series, he displays sardonic contempt for authority figures. House shows an almost constant disregard for his own appearance, possessing a permanent stubble and dressing informally in jeans and t-shirt. He avoids wearing the standard white lab coat to avoid patients recognizing him to be a doctor.

House has a small social life and his only friend is Dr. James Wilson. Wilson knew House before the infarction, and looked after him when House's relationship with Stacy ended.[22] Although they frequently analyze and criticize each other's motives, Wilson has risked his career to protect House. Dr. Wilson takes emotional refuge in his friend after suffering from a failed relationship in "Sex Kills." House has quietly admitted, at several instances, that he is grateful for Wilson's presence, including referring to Wilson as his best friend. Dr. Wilson is one of the few who voluntarily maintains a relationship with House, and one of the few individuals who can make House laugh.

 

Quote:

Dr. Wilson: Ah yes, if it isn’t Dr. Ironside.

Dr. House: Ah, if it isn’t Dr. “I had no friends when I was growing up, so all I did was watch TV by myself which is why I can now make pop cultural references which no one understands but me.”

Dr. Wilson: That’s my name, don’t wear it out.

History:Jason made his first appearance in the original Friday the 13th (1980), not as the film's killer, but as a memory of his mother, Mrs. Voorhees (Betsy Palmer), and a hallucination of Alice's (Adrienne King). Though the character is never truly seen, he is the subject of the plot of the film, as Mrs. Voorhees seeks revenge for the death of her boy which she sees as the fault of the counselors. Jason's second appearance was in the sequel, Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981). Jason's death as a boy is retconned in this film, and he gets his revenge on the girl who decapitated his mother. Jason (Steve Daskewisz) returns to Crystal Lake, guarding it from all intruders. Five years later, a group of teenagers comes to Crystal Lake to set up a new camp, only to get murdered one by one by Jason. Ginny Field (Amy Steel), the lone survivor, finds a cabin in the woods with a shrine built around the severed head of Mrs. Voorhees, and surrounded by mutilated corpses. Ginny fights back, and slams a machete through Jason's shoulder. Jason is left for dead as Ginny is taken away in an ambulance. In Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982), Jason (Richard Brooker) escapes to a nearby lake resort, Higgins Haven, to rest from his wounds. At the same time, Chris Higgins (Dana Kimmell) returns to the property with some friends. An unmasked and reclusive Jason kills anyone who wanders into the barn where he is hiding. Taking a hockey mask from a victim to hide his face, he leaves the barn to kill the rest of the group. Chris fends off Jason by sending an axe into his head, but the night's events drive her into hysteria as the police take her away.

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) continues the story, with Jason (Ted White) found by the police and taken to the morgue. Once delivered to the Wessex County morgue, Jason awakens and kills an attendant and nurse, and then makes his way back to Crystal Lake. A group of friends rent a house on Crystal Lake and fall victim to Jason's rampage. After killing all of the teens next door, Jason seeks out Trish and Tommy Jarvis (Corey Feldman). While distracted by Trish, Jason is attacked and killed by Tommy.[6] His appearance in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985) was short lived. Tommy Jarvis (John Shepherd) was committed to a mental hospital after the events of The Final Chapter, and has grown up constantly afraid that Jason (Tom Morga) will return. Jason's body was supposedly cremated after Tommy killed him. Roy Burns (Dick Wieand) uses Jason's persona to become a copycat killer at the halfway home to which Tommy was moved. The only moments of Jason's appearance are through the hallucinations and dreams of Tommy. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) had Tommy (Thom Mathews) visiting Jason's grave after having been released from a mental institution. It is revealed that Jason's body was never actually cremated, but buried in Forest Green cemetery (formerly Crystal Lake cemetery). Tommy inadvertently resurrects Jason (C.J. Graham), via a piece of cemetery fence which acts as a lightning rod. Jason returns to Forest Green, still believing it is Crystal Lake. Tommy finally manages to get Jason back to the lake that supposedly caused his death as boy. Tied to a boulder at the bottom of the lake, Jason is left to die.

Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) begins an undisclosed amount of time after Jason Lives. Jason (Kane Hodder) is resurrected again, this time by the telekinetic Tina Shepard (Lar Park Lincoln), who was trying to resurrect her father. Jason begins killing those who occupy Crystal Lake, and after a battle with Tina, Jason is returned to the bottom of the lake. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) sees Jason return from the grave, brought back to life via an underwater electrical cable. He follows a group of students on their senior class trip to Manhattan, boarding the Lazarus to wreak havoc. Upon reaching Manhattan, Jason kills the rest of the survivors, with the exception of Rennie and Sean; he chases the final two into the sewers, where Jason is caught and melted away by toxic waste.

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) marked the second time Jason was killed off. Jason, through unexplained resurrection, returns to Crystal Lake, where he is being hunted by the F.B.I.. The F.B.I. sets up a sting to kill Jason, which proves successful. Through possession, Jason manages to survive by passing his demon-infested black heart from one being to the next. Though Jason is hardly seen throughout the film, it is learned that he has a sister and niece, and that he needs them to get his body back. After resurrecting his own body, Jason is finally killed by his niece and dragged to Hell.

Jason X (2002) marked Kane Hodder's last performance as Jason to date. The film takes place in the future, where Jason has again been resurrected, though it is not explained how. He is being held and experimented upon in a research facility. It is determined that he has regenerative capabilities, and that cryonic suspension is the only possible solution to stop him since he cannot be killed. Jason breaks out of captivity and manages to slice through the cryo-chamber, spilling the cryonics into the room freezing the only other survivor, Rowan (Lexa Doig). Four hundred and forty-five years later, Jason's body is discovered by a team of students studying Earth. Upon being thawed by the team, he proceeds to murder everyone aboard the spacecraft, before finally being blown into space, and landing on Earth 2.

Jason's most recent appearance was in Freddy vs. Jason (2003), set in the present. Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) has grown weak, as people in Springwood, his home, have suppressed their fear of him. Freddy, who is impersonating Pamela Voorhees, sends Jason (Ken Kirzinger) to Springwood to cause panic and fear. Jason accomplishes this, but refuses to stop killing. A battle ensues in both the dream-world and Crystal Lake. The winner is left ambiguous, as Jason surfaces from the lake holding Freddy's severed head, which winks and laughs.

Sorry Vestnik' date=' I don't see anything at that link. Can you post the stats here? :)[/quote']

 

Hmmm, the material must have been taken down. It was a thread started by either Zornwill or Oddhat in which they (or one or the other) had written up Fonzie, Mr. Ed, Hogan, the Singing Nun and several other TV sitcom characters.

Background/History: Detective Sergeant Martin Riggs appears in all of the films in the Lethal Weapon series. This write-up is based on the first film and small parts of the second. I am kind of an action movie purist, and I feel that the quality of the series went down rapidly. I only own the first film on DVD, and I don't even acknowledge the last two. In the first film Riggs is a very dark, scary SOB. Later in the series he becomes sort of a self-parody as the tone of the films moves more and more toward comedy.

 

Martin Riggs is a veteran LAPD officer working in the Narcotics Bureau at the start of the film. His backstory involves a youth spent as a highly trained Special Forces soldier during the Vietnam War. He was assigned to the Phoenix Project, a unit tasked with political assassinations. As a result, Riggs retains most of the skill set that he would have needed to be successful as a covert operator.

 

His wife dies prior to the first film, and as a result he spirals into a deep depression. He begins to take incredible risks at work, as he feels that there is nothing much to live for. His behavior draws scrutiny from his bosses and his coworkers, and he is eventually partnered with Roger Murtaugh, a stable family man. In standard buddy cop style, they start off hating each other, but eventually bond under extreme duress. The original Lethal Weapon is probably the best buddy cop film ever made. It is certainly the model many imitators strive to emulate.

 

Personality/Motivation: Riggs is the template for the modern archetype of the cop on the edge who does not play by the rules. He takes extreme risks in pursuit of the bad guys, leaving a trail of dead bodies and collateral damage in his wake. He also has a tendency to joke inappropriately and push everyone's buttons, even when his life is on the line. He routinely does things that would get any real police officer fired or imprisoned. His death wish makes him a very frightening opponent, as it often seems like he does not recognize when he should give up. In combat he is utterly fearless.

 

Quote: I do it real good you know. When I was nineteen, I did a guy in Laos from 1000 yards out. A rifle shot in high wind. Maybe eight or even ten guys in the world could've made that shot. It's the only thing I was ever good at.

 

Powers/Tactics: Martin Riggs is a cinematic super cop. He is an almost supernaturally skilled gunfighter and sniper. Whether he is armed or unarmed, he can readily dispatch an entire room full of skilled opponents by himself. He is depicted as being on the edge of superhuman ability. The case could be made for giving him a SPD of 5 and a DEX of 20 in the right kind of campaign, but I went with Lightning Reflexes and Rapid Attack instead. There are some other skills that could be inferred from his Special Forces days, but I felt that it was appropriate to trade them out for more law enforcement oriented skills, as he had been working as a cop for a while. He generally carries a Beretta 92F 9mm, but he can fire just about anything.

 

Campaign Use: Martin Riggs would probably work best as an NPC or PC in a Dark Champions game with a heavily cinematic style. He could also work as an NPC cop in a Champions game. He is a match for agent level characters as written. He is not anything like a real police officer, and would probably overshadow PCs in all but higher-powered heroic games.

 

Appearance: Riggs is a very good-looking, athletic, Caucasian male. He is in his late 30s at the start of the first film. Mel Gibson plays the character.

 

EDIT: OK. I'm happy with it now, YMMV.

Although a Tai Chi player myself, I don't think Riggs knows Tai Chi. The training credits for the end of Lethal Weapon I (or was it II?) show that Jailhouse Rock, Brazilian Jujitsu and one other style was used.

History:Jason made his first appearance in the original Friday the 13th (1980), not as the film's killer, but as a memory of his mother, Mrs. Voorhees (Betsy Palmer), and a hallucination of Alice's (Adrienne King). Though the character is never truly seen, he is the subject of the plot of the film, as Mrs. Voorhees seeks revenge for the death of her boy which she sees as the fault of the counselors. Jason's second appearance was in the sequel, Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981). Jason's death as a boy is retconned in this film, and he gets his revenge on the girl who decapitated his mother. Jason (Steve Daskewisz) returns to Crystal Lake, guarding it from all intruders. Five years later, a group of teenagers comes to Crystal Lake to set up a new camp, only to get murdered one by one by Jason. Ginny Field (Amy Steel), the lone survivor, finds a cabin in the woods with a shrine built around the severed head of Mrs. Voorhees, and surrounded by mutilated corpses. Ginny fights back, and slams a machete through Jason's shoulder. Jason is left for dead as Ginny is taken away in an ambulance. In Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982), Jason (Richard Brooker) escapes to a nearby lake resort, Higgins Haven, to rest from his wounds. At the same time, Chris Higgins (Dana Kimmell) returns to the property with some friends. An unmasked and reclusive Jason kills anyone who wanders into the barn where he is hiding. Taking a hockey mask from a victim to hide his face, he leaves the barn to kill the rest of the group. Chris fends off Jason by sending an axe into his head, but the night's events drive her into hysteria as the police take her away.

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) continues the story, with Jason (Ted White) found by the police and taken to the morgue. Once delivered to the Wessex County morgue, Jason awakens and kills an attendant and nurse, and then makes his way back to Crystal Lake. A group of friends rent a house on Crystal Lake and fall victim to Jason's rampage. After killing all of the teens next door, Jason seeks out Trish and Tommy Jarvis (Corey Feldman). While distracted by Trish, Jason is attacked and killed by Tommy.[6] His appearance in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985) was short lived. Tommy Jarvis (John Shepherd) was committed to a mental hospital after the events of The Final Chapter, and has grown up constantly afraid that Jason (Tom Morga) will return. Jason's body was supposedly cremated after Tommy killed him. Roy Burns (Dick Wieand) uses Jason's persona to become a copycat killer at the halfway home to which Tommy was moved. The only moments of Jason's appearance are through the hallucinations and dreams of Tommy. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) had Tommy (Thom Mathews) visiting Jason's grave after having been released from a mental institution. It is revealed that Jason's body was never actually cremated, but buried in Forest Green cemetery (formerly Crystal Lake cemetery). Tommy inadvertently resurrects Jason (C.J. Graham), via a piece of cemetery fence which acts as a lightning rod. Jason returns to Forest Green, still believing it is Crystal Lake. Tommy finally manages to get Jason back to the lake that supposedly caused his death as boy. Tied to a boulder at the bottom of the lake, Jason is left to die.

Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) begins an undisclosed amount of time after Jason Lives. Jason (Kane Hodder) is resurrected again, this time by the telekinetic Tina Shepard (Lar Park Lincoln), who was trying to resurrect her father. Jason begins killing those who occupy Crystal Lake, and after a battle with Tina, Jason is returned to the bottom of the lake. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) sees Jason return from the grave, brought back to life via an underwater electrical cable. He follows a group of students on their senior class trip to Manhattan, boarding the Lazarus to wreak havoc. Upon reaching Manhattan, Jason kills the rest of the survivors, with the exception of Rennie and Sean; he chases the final two into the sewers, where Jason is caught and melted away by toxic waste.

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) marked the second time Jason was killed off. Jason, through unexplained resurrection, returns to Crystal Lake, where he is being hunted by the F.B.I.. The F.B.I. sets up a sting to kill Jason, which proves successful. Through possession, Jason manages to survive by passing his demon-infested black heart from one being to the next. Though Jason is hardly seen throughout the film, it is learned that he has a sister and niece, and that he needs them to get his body back. After resurrecting his own body, Jason is finally killed by his niece and dragged to Hell.

Jason X (2002) marked Kane Hodder's last performance as Jason to date. The film takes place in the future, where Jason has again been resurrected, though it is not explained how. He is being held and experimented upon in a research facility. It is determined that he has regenerative capabilities, and that cryonic suspension is the only possible solution to stop him since he cannot be killed. Jason breaks out of captivity and manages to slice through the cryo-chamber, spilling the cryonics into the room freezing the only other survivor, Rowan (Lexa Doig). Four hundred and forty-five years later, Jason's body is discovered by a team of students studying Earth. Upon being thawed by the team, he proceeds to murder everyone aboard the spacecraft, before finally being blown into space, and landing on Earth 2.

Jason's most recent appearance was in Freddy vs. Jason (2003), set in the present. Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) has grown weak, as people in Springwood, his home, have suppressed their fear of him. Freddy, who is impersonating Pamela Voorhees, sends Jason (Ken Kirzinger) to Springwood to cause panic and fear. Jason accomplishes this, but refuses to stop killing. A battle ensues in both the dream-world and Crystal Lake. The winner is left ambiguous, as Jason surfaces from the lake holding Freddy's severed head, which winks and laughs.

You are right. I read an article where they talked about his training for the first movie, and Jailhoues Rock/52 Hand Blocks was one of the things he had to study. It was used in the big fight scene with Gary Busey at the end. That tag is a quote from the movie. I was trying to be funny and assumed that folks would remember the line. If I removed my tongue from my cheek, I would just write somthing like Commando Training Plus.

 

EDIT: I need to add a Choke Hold to that list before I say I'm done.

 

EDIT: I may need to play with the levels, too. Believe it or not, he may need more levels.

I "must spread some rep around", but that's a nice one. I've only seen the show once, but it looks good. I'm eagerly awaiting the DVDs so I can catch up.

Background: Ned grew up in the village of Coeur d'Coeurs, next door to a girl named Charlotte Charles, whom he had a childhood crush on. Ned discovered his gift by reviving his dog, Digby, who was run over by a truck. Later that day, Ned also revived his mother after she suddenly died of a brain aneurysm. However, he soon discovered that his gift had consequences when Chuck's father died next door in exchange. Ned discovered the other effect of his gift later that night, when his mother kissed him goodnight and died a second time.

During their respective parents' funerals, Ned and Chuck kissed—the first time for both of them. After the funeral, Ned's father dropped him off at the Longburrow School for Boys, never to return. Ned continued to test his gift, learning its limitations and rules. The only contact he ever received from his father was a pre-written postcard that announced, "We've Moved". On Halloween, Ned dressed up as a ghost and went to his father's house, but discovered that his father had remarried and had two stepsons.

After finishing school, Ned opened his own restaurant, The Pie Hole, a restaurant specializing in pies. Ned lives above the restaurant in an apartment, next door to his employee, Olive Snook, who is not aware of his ability. Olive has long held a deep affection for Ned, but despite her many attempts to attract him, he has no feelings for her.

Ned enters into a partnership with private investigator Emerson Cod, who accidentally discovers Ned's ability. Ned uses his ability to revive people who have died under suspicious circumstances to ask them about the nature of their death, thus allowing Emerson to solve the crime and collect the reward money, which the two split.

During the pilot episode Ned and Emerson hear of a woman being murdered on a cruise ship, with a $50,000 reward for solving the crime. Ned soon learns that the woman is Chuck, whom he had not seen for almost twenty years. He revives her to ask her who killed her, but discovers that she doesn't know. He is about to touch her but cannot bring himself to do it, allowing her to live instead and inadvertently causing the funeral director to die. Chuck and Ned soon develop strong feelings for each other and begin a relationship; however, they cannot touch at all, as doing so would kill Chuck.
