This is an alternate version of Beast where Speed is 5 instead of 4.  It allows him a bit more action to use Dodge or other attacks.  I think that based on my feel of him from the comics, he would have more actions that Cyclops and similar.  So that is the reason for this alternate version.

Alternate version of Angel using the Speed 5.  At the moment this increased speed makes me a little happier, and keeps speed down in general for most characters.

Complications Points: 140

 

Iceman, a Speed 4 Blaster with some decent DEF.  However, he just does not have the dedication as some other characters and because of that he lags behind the skill that other people would have.  Cyclops for instance comes in with higher OCV and DCV as well as more SLs that apply.  But Iceman has a much broader approach to his powers.  

 

His Crykinesis gives him some really strong attacks, but many of the abilities are broken up between multiple powers.  This means that Iceman does not have the combat OOMPH to really deal with some heavy hitters by himself, but is good in support roles during combat.  His best combat abilities are the two entangles that he has access to and let him be a real threat in a fight.

Jean Grey using both Telepathy and Telekinesis in two pretty good MPPs.  She has a lot of utility, and some serious bang with her powers.  She can fly the group around but was never used for long distances unlike Polaris (except X-Men #3), so the speed is not that fast for her.  She can throw up shields around the group, which is something she frequently did.  

 

The points spread on her fairly well.  There wasn't a need to stretch to get to 400, and I didn't feel the need to cute much back either.  So it worked out fairly well for her.  

 

Putting her up finishes off the original X-Men.  Which makes me happy to get them all posted up.

I would never be able to fight the urge to just combine her two separate Multipowers into a single 120 point reserve version with all slots built on 60 active points (which then evolves into a similarly skewed Limited VPP like the one this character has that has a cost of 120 points vs. 134 for her 2 Multipowers)

I remember liking the VPP approach that you did with characters on your Justice League.  But we tried similar at the table and it did not turn out as well as I hoped.  I know I am very hesitant to use VPPs on a lot of characters, but I think that is just from years seeing the STOP sign over them and having nobody to really teach me how to play the game.  

I looked at VPPs on some of the characters, but did not like them as much as the MPP which is where I generally lean myself.

Havok, he is a real danger.  I know that in the comics he was far more hesitant to use his powers than Cyclops was.  The danger was that he was an absolute danger to anyone who he used them on.  So I really tried to pump up the danger that he has in combat.  However, I kept him with Killing Attacks which means he should be really hesitant to use his powers.  

 

Because of the danger of using his powers I gave him some real OOMPH in what they had.  That was why I added the Stunning attack.  I initially was thinking of just adding some damage for purposes of only determining whether the target was stunned.  When I brought that up, I was told that it might be better to use the Change Environment.  

 

He is a lot like Cyclops, but more dangerous in the power that he has but a lot less Skilled in a number of ways.

Professor Xavier, one of the premier minds of the Marvel Universe.  I really tried to squeeze him into a 400 point jacket and when I saw how that looked early on just decided it was not worth it.  So I bumped him up to 500 and called it good.  

 

In Telepathy he should be able to make mince meat out of Marvel Girl, but that is the way it is supposed to be.  I brought his Psionics down from a 20- (Best ever) because I felt that Shadow King is more knowledgeable about those things in a lot of ways.  However, in those ranges it is really just quibbling over small bits on how good individual people are.  It was similar with his knowledge of mutation, I felt that Apocalypse would have a better understanding of that.  

 

His Strength might seem high the way that I rate things (I consider 'normal Strength' to be under 10) but he works out a lot to keep himself in shape, but he just works what he can.  There are a lot of old scenes from the 80s of him in the Danger Room doing PT with Lilandra.  I mean, I don't think that Charles is having his students load him into his chair every morning and into bed at night.  Nor do I think he has bathroom assistance...then again in that awesome chair he got in the 90s maybe he doesn't need to get out to use the bathroom anymore.  

 

His flaws are mostly the same, but his dedication to the Dream of X is Total, rather than the Strong.  The truth is that he is willing to do some bad things to keep his dream alive.  In the old days he even messed with normal humans minds all the time to make them forget the X-Men.  It is funny to go back and read those books and compare them against the attitude that he had later in the books where mind wipes should not be done.

Angel
Warren Kenneth Worthington III

The biggest point of contention that I had when putting Angel together (other than where to put some excess points) was giving him No Turn Mode on his flight.  I ended up using that Advantage on his flight because he is shown in many comics as outmaneuvering other strong fliers with ease.  It could be represented with MSLs, but it seemed easier to me for someone at the table to show aerial superiority in the fashion that Angel has with No Turn Mode.  

 

One less than obvious benefit of Levels with Flight vs. the No Turn Mode Advantage is that the Levels can also be applied towards the optional Dive For Cover maneuver (good for escaping AOE Attacks).

With his Flying Dodge, doesn't he get out of those without a problem?

 

Doh!

You are absolutely correct.  Movement levels can be applied to DCV when using any type of Dodge as well.

 

from the old 5e FAQ (a copy I saved locally before the website changed)

 

 

If a character uses Flying Dodge to try to avoid a ranged non-area-affecting attack, he still gets to move and still gets a DCV bonus from the maneuver, but he’s not automatically missed — the attacker still gets a roll to hit (unlike with Dive For Cover, where the attack would automatically miss). If it’s a HTH attack, the Attack Roll is irrelevant, since the character won’t be in HTH combat range any longer.

[Notes: Mindless violence drives Colossus to...MINDLESS VIOLENCE! It might not be a pretty cycle, and it is going to be one that eats up his Code Against Killing afterwards, but this powerhouse just reaches out and kills people at times when things have pushed him too far. While Proteus was a planned move, Riptide was more of a spur of the moment kind of thing. Colossus even fully intended to continue going in slaughtering the Marauders but made his recovery check. Watch out for the gentle giant! ]

Colossus is one of the hearts of the new X-Men.  To me growing up it was all about the friendship between Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Wolverine.  While I loved Banshee's power set and always wanted to see more on him, these characters and their interaction is what made the book what I wanted to keep reading.  

 

Colossus is a major powerhouse who is defined by the transformation that he undergoes.  Even without his powers on, he should not be a slouch in a lot of fights.  I dropped his Dex and Int to 9, because he always seems slow, both mentally and physically.  Cyclops used to own him regularly in combat because Colossus was so convinced of how his power would see him through the day.  It isn't enough to drop him in any significant way, but does represent that he is a little behind where starting heroes are on those stats.  

 

Reading the information that I could find on him, they say things like how he can take a tank shell to the chest without problem.  I made him really tough individual, and think that his physical defenses should show him through most fights that he gets into.  He picked up Toughness so that he can try to block for other people when the time comes, though they have to be within a certain range of him.  

 

The big drawback on the Russkie is that he is big and slow.  In a battle where the fight is highly mobile he is going to be limited to throwing things at his enemies.  It is a problem that characters like him, the Thing, and a few others have.  Hulk can get where he wants to go with his incredible leaping, but Colossus is stuck where he is most of the time.  I increased his movement speed a bit with some points when he is armored up, but that is only going to help him so much.  

 

Speaking of throwing things...I buffed up his ability to perform the Fastball Special since he is the character that started the whole trend, or at least he and Wolverine are the team that gave it a name.  It was always a signature move and when it happened, you knew something awesome was in the works.  Especially in UXM #142, that was a fastball special to remember!  

 

His OCV and DCV lag behind.  The DCV is not that important for his defenses, and the OCV is made up for with his standard Martial Maneuver of "Punch" which gives him 2 more points.  If he gets to melee with you, and you are not the Blob, Juggernaut, or similar then you are going to be in trouble.  

 

His weaknesses are primarily not exploitable by enemies in a straight up fight, but Magneto can easily use him as a wrecking ball (and has) against the rest of the team.  The complications that he has lean towards his big heart, and how it tears him up for those he cares about to be hurt.

Beast really needs to be speed 5 or even higher, given his incredible agility.  When someone wanted a nightcrawler clone for a game I ran, I had to give him 6 speed just to do what he does in the comics.  I love the builds.

 

I agree with the Speed 5.  I tried him as the Speed 4, but it just did not seem to sit right with me.  I think he works well as a 5 and could see him at the 6, which is where I initially built him.  But I agree that for me to see what they do in the comics against the other characters, the Speed increase is needed for characters such as this.  

 

Also, one of my groups favorite aspects about Champions, Shadowrun, and a few other games is that some characters get more actions.  It provides a very different way to differentiate one character from another that many games do nothing to provide.
