Maybe he should have his own island somewhere ?

Malachite had an island. Tells also. And Doctor Munroe also had an island. Sure, it was his grandfather's island, which they wrote about, but an island none the less. And he had a mountain. And get has labs on Monster Island. Go figure.

Let's find a place for The Great Beast and Malachite by looking through the Champions Villain Volume 1 and see what genetics villains are there...

 

Doctor Destroyer (pages 15-43, including agents, supers associated with him, and robots)

Works: He is more likely to use his genetics knowledge to fix the flaws in the powers of other supervillains, but with a twist. He would either make sure such improvements could be turned off in case of betrayal, or add something in (much like the neural bomb inside Thoughtcrime to make sure yet another mentalist will not betray him). He rarely creates clones, viruses, or mutations himself.

 

Kinematik (pages 71-79)

Works: Again, like Doctor Destroyer, he is not known for his genetics. He can't create mutants and such. He does know Eugenicist, the ancient ancestor of Genetics, which works as a better humanity via selective breeding. This, given time and a loyal group of followers, he can raise an army of more 'perfect' mutants within two generations or so.

 

King Cobra (pages 80-97)

Works: Primarily 'snake people'. King Corba's obsession with creating a horde of loyal serpent men is legendary. And making them out of humans, even more so.

 

Mechanon (pages 99-117)

Works: Another villain nobody would associate with geneticist. But he has used it in the past to create life ending organic destruction viruses which he threatens to unleash from time to time (and somehow has never released for one reason or another). His failer might be mostly because he despises organic lifeforms, it pains him to use an organic lifeforms to destroy one.

 

Doctor Phillippe Moreau (pages 122-125)

Works: "Manimals", uplifted animals with almost human body placement. Idolizes his grandfather. Surpassed his grandfather. Kinda works for VIPER, yet maintains his independence at the same time.

 

Joseph Otanga (pages 138-141)

Works: While the source is magic, he is skilled in changing humans into animals. Also, he is skilled in giving himself animal powers via the same magic.

 

Teleios (pages 221-225)

Works: Clones. He is well known for the love of himself, and this most of the clones he creates are similar to himself genetically (why work with inferior subjects, when everyone knows he is perfect).

 

While not in any book yet, I must say something about...

Doctor Lirby Koo

Works: Various branches of genetics. He probably was once forced to work for the Tiger Squad, so he is more than knowledgeable about superpowers and how to 'improve' them, suppress them, modify them, ect...

 

Now, to the subjects at hand.

 

The Great Beast

Works: Modified animals using some strange organic material he has discovered. The catch is that the substance can easily be given to the subject without causing pain, and results in superpowers without a loss of loyalty a pet would give to a master. And to The Great Beast, that is exactly what they are to him, his pets. He, in fact, prefers them to human company.

 

Malachite

Works: Devolution Gun. Litterly, he has zapped people, plants, and animals back to there prehistoric counterparts using the gun. As part of the devolution, they are artificially conditioned to obey all commands he issues, if they understand it or not. He is working on a way to devolve birds into dinosaurs (he tried doing that once with reptilians, but only gotten dri gators).

I know, an abandoned subway tunnel ?

Kinda like the abandoned dock warehouse, don't you think.

 

An abandoned zoo might fit The Great Beast better, but you rarely come across them anywhere.

Humm.

 

Rainbow Archer is perfect for Valentine, because of the bow and arrow gimmick.

Another lovelorn character is the Dark Champions villain Tenderheart. Finally, it is perfect for the husband and wife team of Thunder and Lighting.

If you have room, yes. Panda & Racoon. Just don't call her Genma, and him Cartman.

 

Genma Saotome from Ranma 1/2, and Eric "The Coon" Cartman from South Park.

Well, one could do Tenderheart for a street-level baddies issue. Or not. She is Dark Champions.

 

*and I know Tenderheart is a he. He identifies as a female.

Humm...if we really want to do a street level Forgotten Enemies book, can officially do a few Dark Champions characters, and also need to 'hands off of' Card Shark and his org (because Steve Long needs to do a 6th edition which does them justice/because only Steve Long can to a 6th edition version which does them justice), who would you pick, and why?

 

1) Tenderheart: She comes off as a pore girl's Catwoman. But her focus is rather interesting (instead of cat based crimes, try a more vague romance based crimes). She is an interesting insert into LBGTQ characters in the game, and is one of the first. And, we don't have many fencers in the weaponmaster side of the world. I would give her some extra weapons (darts with things like ko gas, for example), an entangle (rope, cause what is more romantic then saving a damsel in distress...um...sorry, but your not the damsel Tenderheart, your the villain.), and perhaps a weighted scarf.

 

2) Penny Dreadful: Nothing screams street level superhero than Batman, and Bat has many villains with some sort of weird obsession. Penny is in it for the books. She carries gimmick objects which she uses as weapons (razor sharp bookmarks, heavier than normal book which is blank inside and none of the pages have words or pictures on them cause she wouldn't risk a real book in combat, ect...). She can easily work with Tenderheart (cause Tenderheart loves her some Harlequin romance books, among others). She has other minor henchmen with names like Printer's Devil, Spellchecker, Dewie Decimel, Card Catalog, ect.

 

Not A Number, Cause He Don't Exist Yet) Mamon: If you can't find something for Penny Dreadful to do, you can always find something for a coin obsessed madman to do. If push comes to shove, he can stoop to stealing paper money. But his love is coins. With his coin sword, coin mail armor, coin shield, and a bag of "thirty pieces of silver", Mamon should be ready to go.

 

3) trying to think up a third villain to place here. Watch this space.

I searched RPGNow and didn't find anything. I don't find anything at the Herogames store. Did I miss something?

Considering that he is a sewer dweller, he looks a bit too clean. Of course, it is possible that some mutant overlord type found him, and taught him to be more...human. But he still hunters for potassium, which his favorite way of getting is in human blood.
