Create a Hero Theme Team!

Recommended Posts

The hero known as Vasu Shastra is able to create objects by warping reality to fit what he needs. He is a support member for the group, but villains have learned that a builder with a good control of his power can wreck things.

Maharaja

 

This hero often dresses like a Maharaja of old which often attracts assassins and kidnappers. He has the ability to attract and entrance people so that they ignore the others or indeed anyone else.

He is something of a raconteur so that he has claimed he was a Bollywood star who picked up an enchanted item granting him powers; that he was a ruler from India's past who was awakened when his country needed him; that he was an Untouchable blessed by the Gods to defend the people; that he is the rightful ruler of India having pulled a sword out of a stone; that he is a direct descendent of Queen Victoria; that he came to the aid of his country walking out of a television show and that he is a reincarnation of a well known maharaja.

He knows how to use most weapons, is a lower level brick and is skilled at disguise. He will pose as the leader of the group

Byangoma makes his living as a fortune teller, helping those in need with kind words and necessary wisdom. He has joined the rest of the heroes where his ability to divine answers and know the future has allowed him to stay one step ahead of criminal schemes.

 

Byangoma passes himself off as a beggar, but a bird motif is always present.

Officer Singh

 

This member of the team looks like a normal Sikh police officer i.e. a khaki uniform but a turban. He also has a beard a moustache. He is skilled in martial arts but has somehow developed an energy shield which repels energy attacks, bounces bullets and absorbs physical damage. The shield is larger than a buckler. but does not cover his entire body. He can fire bolts of energy which could potentially kill but he has only disabled people (although not permanently) with it. He serves as a normal police officer when not working with the team.

 

We need a few more Indian centric heroes despite reaching the minimum.

Gaijet (Gadget in Hindi) is a computer and technological whiz kid.  But as a girl, she was usually held back, because who wants a wife whose smarter than her husband?  But then the computer boom hit India and suddenly she was at the forefront of the tech wave.  With some judicious investments she became wealthy and BORED!  So when a call went out she whipped up a bunch of gadgets, a small personal FF device and a knock off of the Ping Pong Gun (No deadly attacks and she pays a royalty to Foxbat).  She's generally support, but her tech skills and computer knowledge is valuable for tracking down info!

The man known as Hathi (Elephant in Punjabi) is the gentle giant of the team.  Sochai Dhaliwal is a big guy with tough greyish skin, enlarged tusk-like canine teeth, and a large nose, which combined make him look vaguely elephantine.  He likes to joke that he was bitten by a were-elephant when he was a child, but his anatomy is actually due to him being a mutant. While slightly stronger than the Lion of India, Hathi's primary powers are his incredible defenses.  He's able to shrug off even the toughest blows, whether physical, energy, or psionic, so he often places himself between his teammates and their foes, happily taking hits meant for his friends.

Bhavya Sohdi has always been confused with being a minion of VIPER or COIL due to his scaly appearance.  Recruited by Byangoma, Bhavya has proven his worth as a hero of India. His power to enhance his speed by shedding his second skin has given him the name of Cobraster.

Amal Sohdi has a variant of superspeed like his brother Bhavya. While Bhavya can increase his own speed by shedding his skin as a booster, turning him into a human rocket, Amal is capable of almost teleportation like bursts. While his brother is the Cobraster, he is the Rik.

Rakshesha

 

She looks like a demure beautiful Indian woman but she can change into a tiger like being.  Her name comes from Vedic tradition and is the human form of female Rakshasa but she is actually a weretiger. She is also a devout Muslim. She acts as a secretary, or harmless assistant, only turning into the dangerous tiger form in extreme combat conditions. Otherwise she is kept for jungle conditions or ones that require scent tracking as she is an excellent tracker. She can take an ungodly amount of punishment but the results of her catching the person can be extremely visceral. There may be a way to kill her permanently but no-one has found it yet.

 

We now have the minimums of numbers, an elephant, a tiger, a Buddhist, Hindus, a Muslim, a Sikh and a monk. So if the next person wants to post a member and a new team that would be good.

There are three Indian crocodile types called the Mugger, the Gharial and the saltwater crocodile. Just saying.

Khukuri is the fearless hand-to-hand warrior of the team.  A retired Gurkha officer, Arjun Shukla carries a mystic curved blade that he can summon to him from anywhere and can even control with his mind.  His favorite tactic is to throw the blade and cause it to fly from opponent to opponent, slicing each in turn before returning to his hand.  He also can use the blade to deflect attacks, both those directed at him as well as those targeting others.

 

And "fearless" isn't a word used loosely here.  Shukla does not hesitate in the slightest to put himself in harm's way to protect innocents.  This has been demonstrated enough to quiet those who said the blade was the true hero, and Shukla merely the person carrying it around.

The QUEST are high-tech heroes who use their brainpower, gadgets, battlesuits, robots, and/or other inventions to save the day.  Who are these five heroes?  (Bonus difficulty - the group gets its name from the first letter of each member's hero name.  My apologies in advance to whomever has to come up with a name starting with "Q" or "U".)

What's the go to phrase nowadays ? Oh yeah, hold my beer !

 

Quanta

 

Alexis Steppanopolous became the gadget user Quanta after supervillains attacked her college and used primary school kids as guinea pigs for experiments. This had such an impact on her that she became an engineer and inventor. She is perpetually frowning as she has seen the downside of crime. She does not have a battlesuit per se but uses gauntlets to blast opponents and a levitation/propulsion belt to fly. Her mask is more of a high tech apparatus to view objects and to send/receive transmissions.

(All right, I admit DT jumped me. I was going to go with Quark. I guess I'll take U)

 

Ulysses Umbridge is Universal Ubuntu. He is in a very narrow niche where anything that runs on a electronics can be mentally controlled by him, but anything outside of that realm is a very serious problem. His power allows him to support his friends as long as there is something around that he can control.
