Petra stornoway was always trouble her life of crime started at 5 stealing another girls toys by 10 she was running protection against the other kids demanding payment or bad things would happen. In her teens she shoplifted. when she was eighteen she started on burglary targeting the elderly. Which was how she found her self in the dodgy old German guys basement. He was the retired nazis super-villain Der Sturm Krähe he had been taken from Germany by operation surgeon the British equivalent of operation paperclip. The brits had used his expertise on compact energy storage and high voltage dispersal to develop a number of technologies eventually he had retired to Australia. And Petra stole his Blitz Krallen the electrically charged steel gauntlets he had used against allied mystery men.

 

Peter now armed and able to throw lightning the or deliver electrically charged punches became the super-villain Storm and embarked on a violent rampage of smash and grab heists.

 

It didn't last long eventually she was arrested when a local hero captured her getaway driver before she could get out it was a epic battle in the end she went down.

 

She should still be in jail fortunately for her a VIPER attack on the court house during her trial allowed her to escape snatching her electro gauntlets and escape during the chaos.

 

Petra knew that unless she became much more mobile she would end up in jail again and when she saw the news report on the coast guards new experimental search and rescue flight pack the petral she knew she had to have it.

 

Breaking in to the lab proved easy and with the unit and it's plans in her hands she would become the swiftly flying terror that is STORM PETRAL.

 

The petral flight pack is extremely agile able to hover and operate both in the air and underwater at high speed. Combined with her electro gauntlets she is an excels at both energy blasting and speedster roles.

 

She has developed quite a lot of skill with her gauntlets and can now not only throw lightning and deliver powerful electrically charged punches she can generate blinding flashes of light electromagnetic pulses that short out electronics or jam radar.

 

Modulate the current to only stun or generate a field around her that zaps anyone who comes near(thus is the only mode that works underwater.)

Wendell P Hapschmidt had a tough life. The heir to the Hapschmidt industrial empire he was orphaned at an early age when his parents were murdered.

[that sounds strangely familiar -Editor]

He was also traumatised when at a young age a bird flew out unexpectedly at him and terrified him. [this also rings a bell -Editor]

Raised by a faithful retainer he trains himself in martial arts and immerses himself in the study of various sciences and technology.

[wait just one minute ! That really is familiar ! But where have I seen this before ? - Editor]

On taking up the reigns of Hapschmidt Enterprises, Wendell was almost killed in an act of industrial terrorism which claimed the lives of several members of the board and his girlfriend. As a result of this Wendell now has little to do with the day to day running of the H.E. instead concentrating on Hapschmidt Technology which is his pet project. He cuts a bit of a swagger when he does go out partying as you know he is wealthy. [that last bit is again familiar - Editor].

The police in the meantime are looking for the foul fiend behind the bombing known only as The Pelican.

Wendell is the bankroller of the team and has a winged flying suit as well as a variety of toys which he uses to wage war on society at large.

[Ha ! Ha ! Very funny. As this is in Australia why didn't you just call him Wayne Bruce ? - Editor]

Kukoobrah sits on an old gum tree. Verry verry merry is he.

 

The mysterious Kukoobrah is the laffing fiend of the sky. Armed with razor sharp tallons, he swoops down on his hi tech wings. But his most fearsome weapon is his sonic laff, which can crack the hardest rock.

 

Unknown to the Pelican, it was this fiend who killed his parents all thoes years ago when he was a normal criminal. He is not responsible for the bombing, but knows who did it. And he is not telling.

Next team: Black Gear.

 

Numbers: 5 to 7.

 

All members are cyborgs created by Black Gear himself, and all are programed to be loyal to him. All of them are given a three letter code name (examples: GUN, FLY, APE, GUM, BIG, ect...) They have no choice but to obay him as he plans on cybernising the world.

Perhaps I was being too subtle. Wendell had his parents killed and arranged the bombing. He is a thorough rotter.  It amuses him that Kookaburra thinks he knows what he knows. Wendell is good at playing up his little 'Mr Innocent at the mercy of the fates' part.

 

FLY

 

Dave Arthur was a normal career criminal with no chance of becoming a villain. That all changed when he ran into one of the members of A.P.A.S. (the American Protector Appreciation Society) who, deeming Dave to be criminal scum not worthy of living in the chosen land of Idaho, tied him up and set him on fire. Fortunately Dave was found and rushed to hospital but the damage was done. Dave would have remained there but Black Gear removed him once he had asked Dave whether he would like not only to have the use of his arms and legs again but to be more than he was before. Although the procedures were painful, Dave survived and learned how to use his new powers. He was now able to fly as well leading to his new code name. Dave has no idea that the programming ensures his loyalty to Black Gear, he is far too grateful after what happened and believes his devotion is simply Black Gear's due for saving him. After all what did anyone do to help him after the burning ?

Of course Kookobrah misrembers the crime. He is the 'joker' to Pelican's 'batman gone bad', and this is not playing with a full deck.

 

Err...Kukoobrah... I spelt the darn thing correctly once...

DOX

 

hackers know that the weakest part of a computers security lies between the chair and the keyboard.

 

Social engineering is often the most effective way to get past security and that is what DOX was upgraded to do.

 

his larynx has been replaced by a digital voice box that allows him to generate subliminal hypnotic signals.

 

His brain has been wired into a huge database of social media data that allows him to generate artificial persons he can test responseses at high speed allowing him to both perfectly mimic people and know exactly what to say to manipulate them.

 

The processor also allows him to interface with security equipment and insert false images deactivate metal detectors and fool X-ray systems. his skin has been impregnated with a nanopartical display that allows him to change his skin tone at while create tattoos etc under his skin a layer of smart bladders and configurable bone plates that allow him to shift his features alter his height and change his physique at will.

 

The bladders and bone plating also enhance his toughness and durability some what.

 

 

finally his eyes have been modified allowing not only to change his eye colour but to mimic iris patterns and see into the infrared which combined with upgraded hearing allow him to observe emotional state and other cues further enhancing his persuasive powers .

 

While he is the least combat ready of the members of black gear his artificial voice box can generate deafening disorienting or stunning sonic attacks.

 

He is also skilled in a variety of combat arts. DOX was an undercover agent before his recruitment to black gear buy he has been so many people over the years he has trouble remembering his actual past or even his real face.

TAR

 

Jack Grit, tenacious, resilient, and downright nasty. When he waves goodbye, it’s forever. He eats knuckle sandwiches between meals. When he retires from a fight, his lingering maleficence finishes it for him. He is...the most dangerous man in the world.

 

Well, that used to be Jack Grit. Now, after the freak accident, he is a black tar like blob. Grit retains all his mental faculties and was more than delighted when Black Gear provided him with an exoskeleton that allows his tar like form to take on a human likeness. Grit assumed the name TAR and uses his stretching abilities as muscle for Black Gear. (TAR is a cross between Flow and Ripper)

REM has a device implanted in his brain that boosts his telepathy enough to give one command to anyone he sees. That command is to go to sleep. Once the target is down, REM can change the dream any way he wants.

BUG

 

Big Ugly Guy is what BUG is and unlike the others was the result of a number of unnecessary and painful cybernetic enhancements. The reason for this is that Clive Dawkins was a treacherous, backstabbing soul who caused people no end of grief. He betrayed people to the cops out of spite and creamed money off takings letting others take the blame. Instead of the usual near fatal beating, one of his employers went to Black Gear and arranged for Clive to work for him. For once Clive failed to do any background checks and suffered as a result when Black Gear did not send him out on a job but instead began to change Clive bit by bit. And as agreed by his former and new employer the process was lengthy and extremely painful. It was captured on video and shown to others as an example of what would happen if they tried anything similar. The process dragged on as Black Gear waited to see how much someone could take before they gave out and died. Hours became days became weeks became months. At the end there was little of the man left and what there was, was a hulking piece of machine loyal only to its master. And it has no tongue. Not because the screams were irritating or annoying but because in its final form, BUG did not need one.

LAW

 

Like the weapon she shares a name with Lindsey Wong is the heavy hitter of the team while she looks like the clichéd Asian school girl her body has been packed with a veritable arsenal.

 

Her mouth opens to reveal a high powered plasma cannon that can cut through a bank vault. Her shoulders have pop out micro missile launchers firing huge volleys of indirect fire. Her palms open to reveal rapid firing blasters.

 

What tends to suprise enemies who expect her to be a slow tank but she is a fast moving blur dodging and moving around the battle field with gymnastic grace and super powered leaping.

 

She avoids close combat she is skilled at taekwondo especially with her enhanced legs but doesn't have the toughness to go toe to toe.

Ashlyn Barkler casts a speed spell that allows her or others to move faster and evade the police or others. She is not someone who

likes being part of the family and doing anything for the welfare of them or others. Thus she is kept under observation and subtle and not so subtle control.

Drake "Mandrake" Barkler

 

Drake was a disappointment and a joke to the rest of the Barkler Clan because of his passion for his hobby. Just about anything else would have been exceptable to the family but Drake loved stage magic.

 

And no family of black practitioners practiced in the dark arts and hidden mysteries can abide a penny ante conjurorer.

 

Drake practiced in secret his father destroyed his mail order magic kit when he found it so Drake concentrated on slight of hand coin and card tricks. His siblings and cousins mocked him calling him Mandrake the magician. Drake persevered finally he felt he was skilled enough to show the family. After a swingeing dinner for the extended family. Drake gathered the family and began his act he began with the classic disappearing ball trick and despite the family's apathy and contempt for his hobby many where impressed by his skill and showmanship. Unfortunately his cousin Bradley a thug and bully who had made Drake's life hellish insisted on heckling stage whispering to his cronies about real magic and how pathetic drake was. Drake persevered ending his act with his very best trick.

 

Drake stood in front of the gathered family a single large red foam ball resting in his palm. Bradley yelled from his seat at the back "WOW! HOLDING A BALL THAT'S SOME TRICK!" and then without a single motion from Drake the ball vanished. The family was shocked into silence that was one hell of a finale no one could work out how it was done even Bradley was speechless there was applause and then a loud crash as a blue in the face choking Bradley collapsed to the floor clawing at his throat. Some one pulled him to his feet and delivered the heimlich and a large red foam ball covered in spit flew from his mouth. "The next time..."Drake said in a chill emotionless voice. "it will be in your heart!"

 

Drake is now the families Assasin able to kill with out leaving a trace or in a manner that screams don't mess with the Barklers.

 

His only spell is his ability to teleport an object of less than an ounce anywhere within 12 feet including inside objects.

 

He can also recall any object in that radius he can see to his hand and recall the last object sent if he can see it or not.

 

He uses this spell to devastating effect if he wants to send a message his target might be found with and ace of spades lodged in his heart or brain stem on the other hand an ounce of heroin appearing in your heart or an icecube for that matter will leave very little trace for an autopsy. While he mostly uses his power to kill Drake can also disable block the carotid till a target passes out then remove it. teleport a razor blade into a speedsters Acl. How about a cherry pit in the aqueous humour of a person with eyebeams.

 

Mandrake is a middle tier magician playing shows all over the world which often gives him an excellent cover to get close to targets.

Buck Barkler is a copy cat. He has dabbled in whatever interest other members of the family have adopted, moving on when he no longer enjoyed it. His one spell allows him to copy the spells of his relatives. It makes him a formidable opponent, but also egotistical and ready to gloat when he should be trying to make his escape.

Kev Barkler is the man to call when things need to be fixed. His love for science has been derided, but it allows him to turn ordinary objects into a mad scientist's dreams, or simply make sure the television remote works, with his one spell.
