Shazala, Mistress of Desire

 

Who better to exemplify Lust than a succubus ? And this is Shazala, Mistress of Desire. She is beautiful and has ensured that she can appear as such to men and women and cause them to do things for her. She cannot be made to look ugly even when sporting a pair of subtle horns and wings. She has made deals with wizards and others to preserve her life and figure and is the oldest of the group although she does not let on as such. She prefers to cause others to fight for her although she can defend herself. Her tactics usually involve her teleporting away or using invisibility or darkness to hide. She will allow her victims to satiate their desires as she finds it easier to control people as a result. She also defers to the others as to who is in charge. It makes them more of a target than her

Stygian Destroyer

 

Representing the Fifth Circle: Wrath is Tariq Nassar. Nassar was a occultist who after much effort acquired the Dagger of Thoth-Amon. He used it  to summon the waters of the River Styx and conduct a ritual of bathing in a mixture of the waters and blood of seven sacrificial souls. He sought god like power, but instead was transformed into a monstrous raging beast. He went on a rampage of destruction and slaughter only to return to the waters and go into an inert state where his mind continued to brim with hate until the next awakening. The Nine Circles managed to discover his location and used some mystic wards to gain control of the monster and now use it as a weapon to destroy their enemies and foster panic and mayhem in the world. The Destroyer is 20 feet tall, immensely powerful, seemingly indestructible and bleeds and can vomit poisonous stygian waters.

Father An Ran should have known better than to read the books in the forbidden section of the Church's library. He should have known better to say the words inside some of them. He definitely should not have agreed to the deal no matter what. Now he attacks the Catholic church with his clerical powers, doing whatever he can to weaken its standing as a force for good

Which leaves only treason.

 

Lucifer, Benedict Arnold, Vidkun Quisling. Pierre Laval, Kim Philby, Aldrich Ames, William 'Lord Haw Haw' Joyce and Griff the Wonder Collie. All well known traitors whose actions need no further explanation. To this list must now be added the name of Gilbert Reinhardt who has sold out the human race. He was not a well known villain like a DEMON Morbane or a Viper Nest leader. However he saw an opportunity and took it. Now under the name of Stearno he plots the downfall not only of governments but the whole human race.

New Team: The Cleaners

 

A 6 person team that has abilities or tech that allow them to clean up crime scenes removing evidence and disposing of bodies for criminal organizations, assassins, supervillains etc.

 

Super Visor-The team leader is Carla Manetti whose family has been in the body disposal business with The Family for years. She has adapted things to keep up with current technology and investigative techniques. She utilizes a high-tech visor that allows her to scan the area and determine if her crew has properly removed all incriminating material. She is meticulous and a perfectionist and demands the highest standards from those who work for her.

Marvin Mencer found mystical gauntlets which, if Marvin decided he wants something gone, and is holding such an object, "gets rid" of said object. He doesn't know exactly how, just that it doesn't work on living things with a life force (but deals quite well with corpses). He is given the code name Remover, mostly because Eraser was already taken.

 

The exact mechanism is up to the GM, and is unknown to Melvin and his teammates. He basically has Extradimentinal Space with a 'portal' big enough to fit a car into, and an area equal to an Earth size planet. It is unknown if he can ever return what he removed, nor what happens if he filled up the space.

Spring Clean

 

If you want your boudoir of blood to look like a Victorian living room then you need Spring Clean. This villainess has the ability to wash a room removing such unsightly things as fingerprints and say incriminating footprints so they are spick and span as if they have never been used. This is a dead give away to the police.that she has been there or that someone has cleaned up. She lets Spatter do his bit first before she gets to work but she can clean up blood if her colleague is not around. He just does it better.

I'm not counting Super Visor as one of the 6, since she was provided in the OP for this team. 

 

Sometimes, you can't just bump off all the witnesses - that's where you need StoMem.  Short for Stolen Memory, he's a psion with a limited power: the ability to completely erase someone's short-term memory.  (He can read people's short term memories prior to erasing them, which he often does to make sure somebody else didn't slip through the cracks before The Cleaners arrived.)

The last member of the team is the one that is only used where necessary. Gorger. He eats whatever it is and that is the end of that. It can be inorganic or organic. And it does not have to be dead. And the length of death does not matter either. Super Visor hates using him but sometimes the ends justify the means. There are tales that Gorger has eaten a lorry from cab to container, a tank and an entire apartment block but come on nobody could do that. Could they ? 

 

New Team: Lucky 13

It is the ultimate nightmare scenario ! The Viridian Bat teamed up with Dr Nymax! and created the infamy that was ever afterwards known as It Always Rains on Tuesdays caper.

Your mission should you choose to accept it is to detail one of the Lucky 13 with the following provisos:-

There can be no more than 4 of anyone archetype i.e. bricks, martial artists, armour wearers, energy projectors or intelligent talking cats

Neither of the masterminds is overly fond of psychopathic killers so no more than one of these and that would probably be a 'Cleaner'

None of the 13 have to have anything to do with rain, water or Tuesdays.

They should not be really powerful i.e. Superman class

Any nationality is permitted but make sure they can communicate with the others.

None of them should have 'the greatest luck in the world' or 'unluck' at any level

They should be able to work with each other so a walking nuclear reactor that would kill the rest is right out.

There should be at least 2 of each gender minimum.

 

Let's get to seven members and see if anyone wants to continue.

Vacillator

 

Maisy Mills is meek, mousy and terrified of making the wrong decision. She is also a broadcast empath who can pass those tendencies to other people magnified ten fold. Security guards will hesitate to draw their gun, bank tellers will fret over tripping the alarm, heroes won't know who to fight or save first etc. She can basically paralyze individuals and small groups with indecision. She doesn't wear a costume and blends in to a crowd easily and is effectively more of a non combatant and secret weapon for the team.

Walter Walkabout was an anamatronic humanoid wallabe and star and lead singer of the children's show The Chocolate Sundaes. They were on the air for about twenty-five years before finally given the axe by the network. Walter was the only one of the four robot band to excape in resemblance of 'alive' thinking mechanical beings can get.

 

Eventually he came across Dr. Nymax!, and he joined the Lucky 13 to pay for his maintenance and eventually reactivation of the other three. He is a light brick in a silly wallabe costume and speaks in a silly Australian accent. He has a huge pouch to put things in and take things out of. And he has a boomerang. Only one. And he doesn't know how to throw it.

 

Guess who bought the Banana Splits Movie?

'You want a talking monkey ?'

'Yes'

'You want a talking monkey'

'Yes'

'How am I supposed to be taking seriously if one of the gang is a talking monkey ?'

'Then for starters you should not be working with me. Also aren't you the one who is credited with The Candelabra Cavalcade, the Hour of the Spotted Lemur and Buy One, Get One and Flee Screaming ?'

'And it would have worked if it weren't for those meddling kids !' the Bat sighed. 'Alright anything else ?'

'I've developed a weapon for him that will knock out pesky interlopers'

The Viridian Bat sighed, it was going to be one of those was it ?

Grokk the Talking Monkey with a Zap Gun is an intelligent monkey armed with what looks like a laser pistol. This will render people unconscious or at least make people stay at range. Grokk has been described as a Capuchin and also a Golden Tamarin which do not look alike. He understands and speaks English although he can understand French and Spanish and also supposedly several Chinese languages. He is larger than a normal monkey of his supposed species. He is also skilled at 'dirty infighting like poking people in the eyes and tripping them up. Telepaths believe that he is doing this for the thrill of it.

 

Over a decade and a half ago Dynamo worked on compiling a list of over 3,000 names for superheroes, villains and vigilantes after a comment in the Champions Universe book (if I recall correctly) about there being about 3,000 paranormal people in the world. and so the board went about completing a list. Grokk was one of the named who generated debate as to whether you should have silly ones in the list. So I have recalled him for the group.

The Zoid

 

An extradimensional imp that was somehow brought into this reality through an ad campaign for Checker's Pizza to "Avoid The Zoid". It's sole purpose is to ruin the quality of delivery pizza and it seems incapable of using it's wide array of reality warping powers to any other effect. How these abilities will  factor into the plans for the Bat and the Doctor's scheme is any body's guess(possibly the masterminds themselves).

'Lucky' Al

 

Lucky Al is or was anything but. The jobs he tended to go on tended to go wrong although he found that he got out ok. But things could get close. Al worked for The Viridian Bat on the This ain't no Submarine Sandwich caper which involved stealing a submarine and a sandwich and both got away from the heroes despite another member of their side betraying everyone. However this was the wake up call Al needed and he consulted a specialist about his bad luck. Guess who ? That's right ! Dr Nymax! He managed to untangle the mojo surrounding his life so that 'Lucky' Al now has a little luck (3d6). He is a security specialist so he can disable alarms, sensors etc and can fool computers for a while. He has a few gadgets to use in fighting heroes and the police or whatever. But he is not a gadgeteer per se.

When the two masterminds set up the group Al was co-opted as they could trust him.

Ryuto Nakamara is the villainous  devourer of all that is good known as the Kyoto Kama Killing Katana of Kelp. He has two related powers that he loves above all else and claims are better than any others. The first is the ability to grow a kelpish plant to attack any obstacle with its long tentacle like leaves. Then the leaves can eat that substance if he wishes.

 

Nakamara has only taken this job as a temporary shelter since he is on the run from most of the superheroines and villianesses in his native Japan for his use of his kelp on costumes, and taking pictures of the results.

Chin Wa is the Dirty Dicer. WIth a nom de guerre like that, he should be a knife fighting, sword slashing, cucumber cutting chopper of a villain that sends heroes and civilians running with his impressive stature and physical presence. Chin is a master gambler that uses trick die to hex anyone who gets in his way.

 

If Chin and Lucky Al are working together, Chin's die should increase Al's own natural luck by hexing anything or anyone in their way.

Water Boxer

 

Boris Ogunduv is Water Boxer he can cause water to form fists and he can then hit people with them. He cannot lift anything with the fists or slap or strangle anyone. But he can box with the fists. This does not seem to cause a lot of breaking damage (STUN not BODY) and he cannot by deliberate action cause someone's death. He tends to wear bulletproof clothing which can also absorb knife blows as he has no natural protection. He can use any liquid which has water content to make the fists like orange juice or beer but water works best whether it comes from a bottle, a tap, river or sea. Boris does not work with Russian organised crime as he finds it too obnoxious and aggressive.
