csyphrett,

you wanted an update and whatever you put in will be fine. I was thinking did you mean Great Dan or Great Dane but as you repeated Dan I will go with that in the update. The fact that Animal Controller also died was a nice touch.

It's Dan. I admit I used a pun, but you know that's how I get sometimes.

When Meggido put together his plan to do his raid, he hired Dale Petty to handle any transportation problems. Dale agreed. As the Road King, his ability to use any road as a teleport gate was a good way to ensure an escape if it was needed. Dale wound up engaging the SWAT teams and other law enforcement until it was time to leave.

Hawkesmythe

 

Daniel James Hawkins was a scion of a family of great prestige and old lineage. It was also, after his father's and grandfather's mismanagement, stone cold broke, and Daniel had to see the stately family home and remaining artworks sold for pennies on the dollar to pay debts, watch his frail mother slowly die in sub-standard public housing, and see what was left of his inheritance vanish into the pockets of his spendthrift remaining parent.

At 15, his rage at this all boiled over. He beat his father to death with his own walking stick, stole everything worth a buck and fled into a life outside the law.

It was while robbing a convenience store that Daniel first used a gun. He'd fallen in with some low-lives and was only supposed to be the driver, but they'd left him an old S&W revolver in case something went wrong - and two cops driving up as the robbery went down counted. He could have just driven off, but for all his flaws Daniel did not lack courage, and he opened fire.

Two shots, two instantly dead cops. Perfect headshots.

Daniel soon realised he possessed uncanny, near perfect accuracy with firearms. More, he could, after a little practice, determine exactly where any projectile was going to go from seeing it's launcher, and keep tracking that point of aim for minutes at a time, making it child's play to avoid incoming fire.

He hooked up with a guy called Machismo in Dallas, and soon was introduced to Machismo's team, the E-Star Gang, mostly minor supers, but a good number of them and Machismo trained them in the tactics and operational systems he'd learned in the Mexican Army, and between good teamwork, Machismo's leadership and the fact that a few E-Stars, like himself and his on-again off-again love interest Scythe, were proving not to be so low level, they were highly successful at various hits on both sides of the border. Life was good, And Daniel, now calling himself Hawk-shot, was finally living the good life he felt he deserved. He also discovered in himself a deep satisfaction at his ability to kill, and when Machismo wanted someone dead it was either him or Scythe who got the nod. She was more clinical and precise - he was more than happy to shoot his way through a troop of bodyguards.

It came to an end in a well-set ambush in northern Mexico. The E-Star Gang had encountered Primus a couple times, and frankly been unimpressed, but this was UNTIL, and they'd done their homework. Half the gang went down in the first volley, and only Machismo stopped it being a wipe-out, charging the UNTIL line and breaking it, at the cost of his own life. Only a few of the Gang got away.

Daniel found himself on his own again. Scythe - renaming herself Ghostscythe - was recruited by the CIA for their covert assassination division, though she eventually went freelance. Taking a leaf from her book, Damiel reinvented himself as the gun for hire Hawkesmythe. After a time he connected up with Meggido, whom the Gang had done a couple of jobs for back in the day. 

On the day of the Battle, Hawkesmythe had one order: Maximum carnage. While he was able to get pretty much everyone on his primary target list of Jackson Industries personnel, he was actually a little disappointed in his body count - he wound up in a duel with Flechette, and the fighting was drawing down by the time he managed to ditch her and get back to the killing. He is annoyed that the media has been treating it as a win for the heroine, since he figures that at best it was a draw, and he'd really like another round with her. Not to mention another round with Ghostscythe...

 

(Hope this isn't too long!)

Mesmero

 

Like BackdraftMesmero was the leader of of his little group who were attempting to kidnap Colvin Harris the head of R+D at Jackson Industries. There were several options for getting him at home or work and it looked simple but doable. That was the theory. The practice ? He left early for work and got in before he was expected even allowing for time either side. Then there all those odd delays. The cops. A hero. Traffic lights. The suicide right in front of them. And the brawl following an argument. The group agreed for the least practical option, go in at end of day, grab him and scarper And what do you know ? It worked. Until they were coming outside and the place came under attack so they fled toward the loading bay and that became a battleground as well. As the trio took cover and tried to decide what to do, first a hero group appeared and then the police. And not just one or two cars. Several SWAT units and the new armour that Teesdale Armstrong were supplying. Mesmero got Phantom Eye to look around the area to see what was going on while SeBastion could walk around without getting seriously injured.

Flechette then appears as SeBastion returned. Before Mesmero could bluff she named them and opened fire. With lethal intent. Grabbing Harris, Phantom Eye and Mesmero fled deeper into the complex playing hide and seek with the police, the Scions and the psycho squad. In the confusion they lost contact with SeBastion

Madjack  managed to wound Harris but Mesmero chased him off. Things looked bleak until Phantom Eye picked out Road King. Mesmero used his ability to hypnotise to get through the lines with the wounded Harris and 'persuaded' Road King that they were on the same side and they fled. In order to bolster their story Mesmero and Eye popped through the lines grabbing other scientists and porting them out.

Mike Lomax, who is otherwise known as Mesmero, has used his clout in the Underworld to forward the tale of an informer who betrayed the villains or some sort of precog. Nothing else makes sense. He has also damned Madjack as a psycho in much the same way as The Giggler was. Mesmero was delighted at not only the number of the villains who died but also who. They won't be missed.

I made sure wherever I was writing it that I had the name down right. Hawk with an E and Smith spelt Smythe. Had to be a bit pompous. You picked y=that up without me mentioning it. Cudos.

 

Oh and the person who posts the nest villain completes the set and gets to give us the next team.

The last member of the wrecking crew is the martial artist Nermia. He is able to see the weak points and vital points in any physical form and can cause tremendous damage to them by striking these points. He got into a lot of bad luck during the attack and got his arms and right leg shattered. He was captured and hospitalized. 

 

 

Nermia is the location where Ranma 1/2 happens. The generic name of the show regulars is the Nermia Wrecking Crew by the fans.

 

Next Team: The Champions of Zorb

Members: 6-8

Premise: Have you ever watched the anthology film The ABCs Of Death 2? There is the short film "W is for Wish". That film starts in a He-Man style action figure commercial and then they are transported to that world with disastrous results.

 

So, give me 6 to 8 beings who would live in that world. Either they are the so called Champions of Zorb; or former good guys who fought Zorb and his forces for so long that they became insane (much like it is implied with Fantasy Man in the short).

Just wanted to give a thanks to death tribble for a great set up that led to a lot of creative output from everyone who participated. Good stuff. Now I have to shift my headspace to bizarre he-man esque characters inspired by a horror anthology sequel. You gotta love this thread. :)

Hargus Blightheart

 

Lucen Brightheart was a brave warrior in service to Prince Casio and Harmonia, but was captured by Zorb. The Sisters of Saad replaced his heart with a shard of Blightstone transforming him into an undead knight in service of Zorb. His mere touch brings decay and rot as does his withering gaze.

 

Hargus Blightheart action figure features glow-in-the-dark heart and eyes, and includes the Blighthammer. Two-headed Blighthound steed figure sold separately.

It was a more recent idea which was in part inspired by the picture you set up in the Super Images thread which in turn led me to Meggido. So I needed to have more backstory for him being perennially thin skinned. Now I had done the pyramid in the jungle and said between 5-20 people and people opted for the high end. i did the same here which means that I have my work cut out again in the Create Link thread.

I am particularly grateful to Sundog who is not a regular contributor like Steraica, csyphrett and Quackhell who has become a regular contributor.

 

Lady Demonia

 

This villainess is Zorb's spy in the sky although she can mix it up. She does not get on with the Sisters of Sade but obey's the dictates of her master.

 

The original Lady Demonia figure was roundly condemned as immoral and had to be redesigned which meant that it came out later than was intended. The wings fold in and glow in the dark. The prototype Lady Demonia is worth a lot of money

Kid Undeath

 

One kid (from the 1980s)sent into the dimension was captured by Zorb's Army.  Rather than accepting the fate of death.  He pledged his allegiance to Zorb.  

 

His body was transformed into a skeletal and gaunt, not really dead or alive.  His cap pistols (he was wearing them when playing with his action figures, after earlier that day playing cops n'robbers with his friends) were transformed into laser pistols, which he can draw with inhuman speed and accuracy.  Injuries to his gruesome body merely heal at a rapid rate, regardless of its severity.  

 

Often he forces prisoners, to play a "game", a kind of most dangerous game, forcing them into the wastelands to hunt down, continuing on his love of playing cops'n'robbers or cowboys'n'indians.

 

His action figure has springs inside the upper body for "quick draw".

Princess Beautisha was Prince Casio's older sister and considered the most beautiful being in all of Harmonia. She was constantly being kidnapped by her evil uncle Count Icked, but were always saved by Fantasy Man and the other heros of Harmonia.

 

Unbenouced to them all, Beautisha and Icked were in cahoots, as they were in fact lovers and both planed to kill off the Heroes when they did the attempt to save her. Luck and Fantasy Man spoiled many plots, enough for the King to declare Fantasy Man her betrothed (earning her the nickname Beardtisha to those who know the truth about who Fantasy Man likes in his bed chambers). One day, another plot to 'kidnap' Beutisha and kill whoever comes to rescue her was in play at The Seal Of Zorb. One bumping uglies later and, by coincidence the moans of sex were the exact words needed to summon Zorb and break the seal.

 

Zorb took off his helmet and ate Count Icked's mind and burnt his body. He put his helmet back on and looked into Beautisha's mind. To him it was a thing of beauty. Pitty her physical appearance did not match. No problem. Zorb will make the body match the mind he found.

 

It took six days, but her new body was completed. She looked around with her new eyes. Taisted food with her new mouth. Smelled the most exquisite smell of decay. Pitty her body now resembled something Pablo Picasso would paint, only more horrifying. She dubbed herself Repullsara.

 

The first few Princess Beautisha dolls usually came with a 'spool of rope' thread and nothing else. Because this was a boys line, she didn't sell well, and was practically given away in any playset with a built in bondage area or death trap. As Repullsara, she stands about a simulated 10 foot tall, lanky, hunched over with detachable limbs (and extra limbs in a separate bag). Sometimes she even grows extra heads. There is a strange mouth in her chest.

Milliclops, the Many-Eyed

 

Milliclops, is a sort of large,  brutish, somewhat humanoid shaped, lump of charred flesh, with eyes embedded all over its body.  Despite its massive strength, it is more of a scout, spy, and bushwhacker because it hurt to get hit in an eye, and when you hit him you almost have to hit an eye.  As a spy, he can detach some of his eyes to leave them to float around the area, for wide area surveillance purposes. The detached eyes can shoot weakened laser beams too, if needed.  

 

 

The action figure didn't sell too well, because, it was considered "boring".  Though,  collectors have started to come around, as he has acquired the fandom nickname "Overdone Steak Man"

The Beast of Zorb

 

When Zorb needs to intimidate or devastate the opposition he sends in The Beast of Zorb. Some say it was one of Prince Casio's friends who was transformed into this terrifying monster. Others say he created it in some dreadful ritual. Others still that he brought together a number of animals and extracted all the fearsome options to make one mega beast.

 

The toy version is reminiscent of Beast Man and that got the makers in trouble.with lawsuits flying. It looks bear like and the stripes glow in the dark.

 

That is 6.

 

New Team: Tracy Richard's Rogue's gallery

Detective Tracy Richard's has a number of weird villains who oppose him. Define one

Between 5-8

They are all based on Dick Tracy villains. Just change a name and give them a background. Note Tracy can be a man or a woman, you tell me. And they could be from the comic or the films. For example Cueball was from a film.

Mister Christmas is the head of the charity Christmas Fund Incorporated. The charity is real. But Mister Christmas also sells the donater's information to the dark web, where the target becomes the victim of various other crimes. If the victim is rich enough, he has his henchmen, Ebenezer ScrubLittle Larry (a midget with one leg who can pass for a small child), Mary Christmas (his wife), and "Dradle" Dan Goldberg rob the home themselves. Tracy hunted his gain down, starting at one Christmas Eve, and ending it at the Christmas Eve of the next year.

 

He is known for his red and green suit with Christmas lights. Unfortunately, to escape capture he jumped into the river without realizing that his light suit was on. He electrocuted himself.

 

Based loosely on "Mister Halloween".

Damn it, I had another Champion of Zorb idea  (though I am slightly disturbed with myself that it has given me inspiration.)

 

Since it did call for up to 8 members, I can post it later tonight, if no objections.

No Objections.

Ok.

 

Bloodskull

 

A wizard, well probably a lich, but the heroes called him a wizard, so we'll go with that.  He was THE main villain in the realm before Zorb came.  After many run-ins with Fantasy Man, his obsessive hatred with the barbarian grew ever more intense.  When Zorb came on the scene, despite his desires to rule, he was all too happy to become the top general, in his all-encompassing desire for revenge.   With a better army to match with his strategic genius, he has pulled out countless victories for his new master, and watched this world turn into the glorious chaotic wasteland he always dreamed it could be.  

 

Fantasy Man's madness is the greatest revenge he could have hoped.   He even "arranges" for the broken barbarian to sneak inside the castle, to "save" new prisoners.  Because with every failure, he gets to watch the man fall farther into the abyss of his own insanity.   Bloodskull, does still harbor some latent ambition to rule, but he is having fun, and can play the long game in case Zorb gets bored and leaves to conquer other dimensions.   He also has a thing with Lady Demonia, though most people who know of this relationship, just get confused on how a skeleton dude would proceed with a physical relationship.  Lastly, his most powerful spell is "Breath of Death"  a fog he can exude that can rapidly age what it touches.

 

The action figure being a red skeleton  wearing black wizard robes, well, Marvel Comics wasn't pleased with some visual similarities with one of their characters.  So, figures are rare.

Gumbo Malone

 

This cajun criminal was once part of the Trinity of Terror along with Cillian Crymespree and Torpedo Vegas but the gang was busted up by Richard leaving Crymespree dead and Vegas rotting in Sing Sing. Malone has sworn revenge and plans on introducing Richards to a special recipe for "blackened gumshoe" courtesy of his trusty flamethrower.
