Goze Gzerian is a minor mystic who has used his limited knowledge to become a ring king. He only has three spells that are useful in a fight, but when he starts slinging them around, everyone knows bad things are going to happen. His Stone spell drops an avalanche of boulders on a target. His Papel wraps an opponent up in a square of paper. His Scizor cuts through any object. 

 

Using a protective mask, Goze goes by the name of Hand Signal.

The SuperFight Club member known as Underhand is secretly a 4'6" tall 13 year-old technology savant named Cheyl Underhill.  Cheryl built a battlesuit that has the very realistic-looking outward appearance of a 7-foot tall, incredibly muscular bald black man.  (It even feels realistic, and bleeds if cut.)  Everybody thought Underhand is a brick (including the rest of the SFC), which caused some friction with Gibraltar (who felt Underhand was infringing on his schtick in the Club).  So Cheryl added the ability to generate electrical arcs from the battlesuit's fingertips, which seems to have appeased Gibraltar.

Snipe the Invisible Man is exactly that. Invisible. Nothing can find him.

He likes to scrap and fighting him can ve a real nightmare since he can maintain his power for quite some time and has a uncanny ability to target ones weak spots.

Rumor has it he moonlights as a Enforcer.

Often wetworkers are called in when a target needs to be eliminated with subtlety, or perhaps even in a way that makes it look like an accident.  Silent Fury is not that guy.  Huge, hairless, and ferocious, Fury has the ability/technology to enclose himself and his victims in a field of sped-up time from which sound cannot escape.  That gives him plenty of time to do what he needs to to do the target without being detected.  And what he does to them is usually pretty messy.  Fury is the guy you send when you want to send a message.

 

Fury enjoys his work, so much that he could (and often does) do his job for free.  Getting paid to do what he loves is just extra.

Mr Shush

 

This assassin gets up close and shoots his victims with poisoned bullets that he himself is immune to as one of his vistims found out to his dismay. He is quiet and deliberate leading some to think that he has had some sort of ninja training. His preferred mode of operation is to get his victim on their own and kill them. To this end he has ambushed targets in the shower, bath and whilst on the toilet. Of the group he is one of those sent in first so that if the target has some sort of enhanced defence, friends who will suddenly appear or some other sort of surprise the rest of the team can adapt and still carry out the contract.

 

Bonus points if anyone can tell where I got the name from.

Lt. Gavin Browne was a member of one of the very first SEAL teams in the Vietnam War.  His teammates thought he had died on a particularly difficult mission, but he was actually injured and captured by the enemy.  Held as a POW in an overgrown temple deep in the forest and tortured daily, he was trying to escape one night when he pulled a stone out of the cell wall to discover a long-hidden scroll rolled up and threaded through a tarnished ring with a strangely-glowing blue stone.  He put the ring on and discovered that he could now read the scroll. 

 

Whatever magic was on the scroll or ring has transferred to Lt. Browne, giving him the ability to open any door and, if no door is available, create a temporary opening in any wall.  It also made him effectively immortal (he doesn't appear to age) and nearly invulnerable (most attacks seems to pass through him, even AoE attacks).  Obviously, he escaped from his imprisonment.  Unfortunately, something about the scroll or the ring also drove him slightly insane, so he didn't return home or to his Navy service.

 

Taking the nickname Seventh SEAL, he worked for decades as a mercenary, rarely using his abilities in obvious ways.  (His near-invulnerability is not a conscious action.)  He recently joined the Wetworkers as their infiltration specialist.

The papers read  six found drowned on shore of lake. Though no one knew it that was the first anyone ever heard of one of the world's deadliest assassins. He doesn't talk much. He's never mentioned where he's from. The name he gave when he joined Wetworks was Bob Smith. And he immediately took the professional name Wet.

There are only three things that can be said for certain about him. He has absolutly no empathy. He can turn himself into a semisolid water creature. In this state hehas some control of water outside himself. So while he prefers to just drown people, occasionally he causes their blood to attack them. And finally he doesn't like being anywhere near the ocean.

Back Door Backdoor is a cyberpath, not a particularly unheard of power. However, she uses her power in the pursuit of killing targets. Anyone foolish enough to leave a digital trail can be traced, anyone who has left data floating about soon finds his secrets discovered. Indeed, Back Door could probably make more money as a simple spy and hacker than an assassin, but she enjoys the thrill of the chase too much. She's been known to reprogram security in a building so what was meant to protect the target instead becomes his cage. If needed, she can manipulate data after a death to create false trails that may make the discovery of the target's actual death take weeks (Or longer)

 

Beyond her powers, she's become quite the adept sniper and isn't bad at hand to hand, though she fully admits others on the team are her superior in that regard.

Some people like for their target to die in a way that looks like an accident. Vic Schide likes to kill people in car crashes and hit and runs. He uses a custom car capable of taking a high speed ram and driving away. He likes to call himself Vehicular Homocide.

Snowplow may not have the most glamourous name of the group, but he can snowboard just fine.  The truth is he doesn't need one though. He tunnels through snow in a fashion that looks like a cartoon gopher going through dirt. It's his superstrength that the team needs though. He's the 'brick' of the team, and while not as strong most supervillain tough guys, give him some snow to ambush from and he can get quit the ege.

I'll go the cold route.

 

The others may be better athletes.  But, these guys would be powerless in enviroments without snow and cold.  That is where Polar Vortex comes in.  He tends to create the enviroment needed for the group.   He'd be a heavyweight, except that is basically all he can do.  A one-trick pony.  (Well, that and  good stealth to hide within his own weather.)  He tends to make the weather, hide within it, and let the others do what needs to be done.  And, no the rest of the group dont make fun of him (anymore).  They want to keep the cold and snow coming after all.

Airdog-Airdog is an athlete, a pure thrillseeker who compares to the best of Olympians. Sport alone isn't enough to get him going though, so Airdog has happily taken up a life of crime just for the kicks of it. He has a high tech snowboard that can fly if it needs to, but he only uses that option when he must, prefering to rely on pure skill. He also has a high tech gun capable of emitting powerful bursts of focused air. He enjoys knocking heroes off ledges with it

Half-Pipe is a set of midget twins who can physically unite and seperate (together they are a whole pipe, ok sorry bad joke) whether in midget twin forms or the normal sized singular form they are an expert in speed and stunt snowboarding maneuvers.  (while the singular form packs a stronger punch, the twin forms are scarier forming 1-2 combos that can often overwhelm a single opponent.

New team: The Castaways

Membership: 7

 

7 survivors of an ill-fated voyage wrecked by a typhoon.  They were forgotten, and after years and decades they died.  Except they didnt, and they arose undead to take revenge on those who forgot them (their newfound abilities ironically helped them escape their deserted island prison).

They each are similar to a corresponding character on a certain classic TV show and the deadly sin they were theoretically most susceptible to)

 

Note: Got this idea from the TV tropes page on Gilligan's Island and being each "based" on a deadly sin (I think on the WMG page)

 

2nd Note:  They were (Professor=Pride, Mary Ann=Envy  Skipper=Wrath  Ginger=Lust  Gilligan=Sloth,  Mr Howell=Greed, Mrs. Howell=Gluttony (Didnt really see that one, but I guess last one left. If I did I might switch her and Giligan, I dont know)

We might want to specify the types of undead and which emotion they represent.

A Vampire could be pride or wrath and potentially lust

A zombie 30s version could be sloth

A ghoul or Romero type zombie could be gluttony

A ghost could be envy

A wraith could be could be wrath

A skeleton could be pride or greed

A lich could be pride or wrath or greed

Now a succubus could be lust but they are not members of the undead

I didint think about that. But, yeah, that might work best. I guess vampire would almost have to be lust (unless you want to get really icky). I personally would go with ghoul over Romero zombie (to avoid 2 seperate zombie types. (perhaps roughly basing off yours, to me, vampire best fit for lust, the lich's best fit being pride. the leftovers working out as Ghoul-gluttony, skeleton-greed, ghost-envy, zombie-sloth, wrath-wrath. Miles may vary, of course, this off the top of my head in correspondence with DT's post)

 

 

Another (perhaps lazy) thought would be just make them "specters" like the Band of Seven were portrayed in the anime Inuyasha. They were uber-mercenaries who were caught and executed and the Big Bad (naraku) brought them back to life via the implantation of a magical artifact (Shikon jewel shard) in their bodies. (though early on in their introduction they "reeked of bones and graveyard soil", though which they were technically made of, I think.) Note: when the shards were removed they reverted back to inanimate skeleton form. All but one had it in their neck, the giant one had his in his forehead.

 

 

Edit: though DT's idea is probably more interesting.
