Grandiose Schemes For Over The Top Villains

Launching hundreds of small (textbook-sized) satellites into orbit, each of which can generate a localized gravity field.  Combined, they can create a giant gravity lens capable of focusing the sun's energy into a massive (half a kilometer wide) laser-like beam directed at any point on the Earth's surface.

 

 

This... this is sheer genius.  Mind if I steal borrow it?

Use cell phones and electrical lines to generate fields that interfere with the intelligence and common sense of anybody nearby. 

 

Too late by at least a decade.

Go for it.  I had it as initially a Mechanon plot (though at a larger scale and meant to cause planet-wide extinction), stolen by a villain team and scaled down.  And having a bunch of tiny satellites working in concert, rather than one large satellite, meant the heroes wouldn't be able to just shoot it down easily.  At the first sign of attack, they could scatter and then regroup later.

Too true, at least as far as cell phones are concerned.  :winkgrin:

 

Though to be honest, I basically stole that phone / electrical line idea straight from a Lois and Clark episode.

True.  Hundreds of tinysats can't be shot down by a guy with a telescope, lots of patience, and access to a hardware store in Dalhart, TX.

 

If Doctor Destroyer had ever found out exactly WHAT happened to his Mind Control Satellite network in 1984, the retribution would have been lethally epic...

But what is Holocaust's go to? Or anyone else in the VV1 book?

 

Holocaust would most likely do something to increase his own power, making himself the most powerful superbeing in the world---even more powerful than Destroyer, or Graviton, or Firewing, or anybody.  He then challenges all comers to open combat, figuring that if everyone sees him beat the heroes so publicly, they'll have no choice but to bow down to him.

 

A more sophisticated scheme would be for Holocaust to acquire a mass mind control device, or team up with a group of mind controllers--the remnants of PSI, perhaps.  Then, when his father--Senator Albert Haganstone--makes a bid for the Presidency, he can use the mind control to get everyone to vote for him, and when Haganstone wins he can be the "power behind the throne."

 

Hope that helps.

Dr. Misogyny's Bimbo Ray would revert women to busty, dimwitted, 1950s housewife stereotypes.  

The Techno Luddite's anti-tech nanotech would wipe out anything invented after circa 1600.  

Climate King's schemes might involve either wiping out the fossil fuel industry, or accelerating climate change to get rid of humanity.

Mechanomagi uses technomancy to drain a fraction of life energy from all cell phone users in order to become nigh-omnipotent.  The only way to stop him is to persuade everyone to put away their cell phones(so, basically, he's unstoppable).
