I almost forgot, my Omega Red homages are plant based!

 

The mother is a villain named Death Bloom (yes, we were going for eXtreme!)

 

However, her heroic children are Wilt and Blossom.

 

They are all plant/life force manipulators.

Would this be for a hero or a villain? And what sort of plant powers are we dealing with here?

 

Hero, and more or less 'all of them', or at least the potential for such. At the moment, she has:

Phytotoxic Immunity (immune to plant-based poisons)

Choking Spores (NND vs Breathing)

Might of the Oak (Growth, with extra armor and running linked)

Tangling Growth (Entangle)

Vine Lash (Stretching + HA)

Environmental Movement through undergrowth

Vine Swing (swinging)

From Freedom Force game:

Eve (archer, plant controll, mesmerizes man [that might be an effect of the costume, however])

 

The Herocentral game "Champions Unlimited" had a plant controller called "Evergreen":

I haven't made any such powers, but it's easy to take plant names and work from those...

 

  • Grass Widow -- The plant itself is a pretty purple flower. I would assume a power named this is a SPD Drain and KA, area effect, requiring contact with the ground
  • Witch Hazel -- This could be anything, but the plants of this name expel their seeds vigorously (explosively, according to one reference)
  • Voodoo Lily -- Again, this could be anything, but these things smell terrible, like a rotting carcass
  • Sundew -- carnivorous plant, where the trapping part has many "hairs" ending in drops of a very sticky secretion
  • Fireweed -- another pretty purple flower, the plant grows well in disturbed ground and is an "early colonizer" of areas that have been excavated/torn up. With that name, you could have nonbotanical fire-based powers, though.
  • Mandrake -- a plant whose roots are loaded with alkaloids that induce hallucinations; lots has been done with this name
  • Death Camas -- a genus of New World plants that are all rather poisonous. As far as powers, do what you want.
  • Loco Weed -- I assume you can make whatever mental attack you like with this name.
  • Death Cap -- an exceedingly poisonous mushroom.
  • Magic Mushroom -- a generic term for hallucinogenic fungi, again, a variety of illusion or image powers could come from this
  • Foxfire -- bioluminescent tree fungi.
  • Ragweed -- some of the most allergenic weeds in existence. Do what you want for tear-gas like effects.

There is an old german saying of woman having "wood in front of the hut". So let's play with that:

Natures Bosom

Blossomed (if you don't mind it sounding close to the powerpuff girl...)

Natural (in "did not used any assitance to get the looks")

 

Springtime (the daughter of mother nature)

 

Trees often played a role in Mythology:
