  1. Maybe a CU equivalent to Hank Pym exists...it is just that he doesn't actually advertise. Either that or the best superhero names he can think of is Doctor Shrinker and Shrinkie Dink.
  2. Dirty Bird is actually a large carion bird with steel feathers and dirty talons. It can emit a fowl substance from it's behind, and is an expert on dropping it from his body while in flight. Myth Master has grumbled at too many multiple in his army, as the intelligence bird represents the Stymphalian Birds, and a cause for the dirting of the Augean stables.
  3. There is no rule that a supervillain needs a fancy name. You can just as well be Jack Smith just as well as Jackknife .
  4. No problem DT. Just giving rubber logic for those who need it. Now all we need is an A.
  5. Machriah knows that Elephantiasis is a member of a clone race. This gender has no bearing on it. She also knows Elephantiasis preceves gender names as an insult (all members of it's race acts the same way about gender names). She helps maintain Elephantiasis' cannons.
  6. Machriah was the captain of Tactica's spaceship. She has four eyes and a rugged frame, weighing about 500 Earth pounds and is 8 Earth feet tall. Besides being large and tall, she is an expert fencer and a fair brawler. She insists that on the crash of her ship that she is the captain and leader. Out of the ship she allows Tactica to lead
  7. You know what would be intresting? If Damien Falmier is the manager of both groups. This, no matter which band wins, what is more important is that HE wins.
  8. Anyone remember the whole rouster of both teams?
  9. I would love to hear about what you did to Road Kill to make them relative and stuff LL. Many of the villains were not exactly heavy metal enough ( Boomer was practically a Prince/Michael Jackson guy walking around with metalheads). As for AA...the group was at least united in theam. One can chalk upNeon thinking his gasses were Neon as just him being stupid. If one wanted a "Battle of the Bands" thing, you could do better than AA, but if you update them to make more sense then go for it. If not, your only resource is to create your own bands.
  10. Any thoughts on doing a "Battle of the Bands" special with Road Kill and Aragant Anakey. Ok, those are the only bands I know on Champions Universe. One is a good heavy metal group. The other? Forgettable punk rock cyborgs from Champions Worse Supliment Ever. Ok, you can leave off AA? But there better be another band ready for Road Kill to, well, roadkill.
  11. Probably. I don't call myself Mispellian Master for nothing.
  12. Just got an idea for an original member. Name: Clugel. Weapon: clubs and jiggling. A borderline brick from England, Clugel made a name for himself as a non-powered costume thug who mostly can outfight street level superheroes.
  13. I kinda have a like for Tenderheart, with a few more gadgets she could be a more normal level Champions villain. I'm not worried about her not fitting. Master Stroke is using the group as a distraction while he searches for Faerie.
  14. I just thought about Tenderheart, another Dark Champions character she even has a sword. But I picture her more akin to Catwoman in nature.
  15. Published? I'm just an idea guy myself. I only published two things in my life, and there were Digital Hero articles. One I still haven't been paied for. Which I don't mind right now.... If Tiger (owner of Tiger Paw Press) wants to do anything with this idea, he is free to do so. ...which begs the question, is there a substitute for Red Rapier?
  16. Companion is saying that it is a supplement book, and that your going to need the original HERO System Martial Arts book to use this one. Not that it is a book of martial arts sidekick characters. Basically new martial art styles. New martial arts powers. New weapons. Maybe if there is some room new characters and "campaign in one page" pages. Oh, and perhaps we can have a writeup of Son Wukong in it. I mean he is the bleeping Monkey King. The Sage Approaching Heaven.
  17. Was going over my digital copy of TPP Villain Companion 2 and the entry for EF-1 (Extreme Force-1). Knowing that the sister group TF-1 contains Piledriver a d Sledge (Tiger's version of these characters) got me thinking about a third group to reintroduce old Champion villains. Of course not all the members should be Champions old timers, but enough of them should be. The requirements for this group: all members wield weapons of some kind. EF-1 is about elemental powers. TF-1 is about missing limbs. WF-1 is about special weapons. My short list of members... 1) Red Rapier: He represents the sword. He is still probably a shameless ladies man, and probably caught an AIDS like disease (if not HIV all together), and has joined for experimental medicine treatments. 2) Master Stroke: He represents the axe. This german supervillain is in it for his quest to find a passage back to Faire. He is also kinda a good friend to Stronghammer the Dwarf (who has worked with WF-1 but hasn't decided that he wants a pediment part of the team, so he drifts in and out of it). It should be noted that once Master Stroke finds a good portal, he is going to offer the group a choice...come with him or...stay here. What? You expect me to say come with me or die? 3) Jackknife: Repersenting the knife. He is actually the psychopath stabbie stabbie guy. His blades usually have an extra kick to them. Like poisons, explosions, acid, and whatever else. We probably need a gun guy. But I'm already pulling two characters from Enimies The International Files from this. And I don't want to pull out Baiwana from the book. Prehaps Ack Ack from Enimies For Higher? You know, the book which was written like an UNTIL dossier on all the villains. Who else? What other weapon users should be here? A pure hand to hand martial artist is an option (body as weapon).
  18. What I know for sure is that it is not a "take once" power complication. You can only take it if you take it on two or more powers.
  19. Humm...I wonder if this thread is going to inspire a new supplement. A HERO System Martial Arts Companion book maybe?
  20. I believe Lockout can only be taken on Multipower slots officially. That of course doesn't really mean a thing, as the GM can say "that's an exception" and makes it so.
  21. Huck Norris, Mister T, Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee. The Legendary Three And One Martial Arts Ghost. Jack The Ripper, the Texarkana Phantom, and The Zodiac might make for an intresting villain group. All three are real world killers who were never caught, and all three have achieved the "more likely dead themselves unless something supernatural happened" status. For more information about the Texarkana Phantom, see this Wikipedia article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texarkana_Moonlight_Murders?wprov=sfla1 . You can also watch the movies based on the case, The Town That Dreaded Sundown and it's remake/sequel-ish movie.
  22. Nice to know that. Looking forward to seeing what your take on the team is. Many think the supervillain arm is going to be variations on Gremlin. While maybe there can be one or more people using the formula to change themselves, it shouldn't be the be all to end all of WITCH supers. There are some basic ideals which may make good villains. 1) A former fashion model who became scared by a former lover, the method of scaring may also lead to super powers. (Hag seems like an idea name for this type) 2) A strong and naturally resistant woman using a large axe. A derogatory word for an overbearing woman is a Battleaxe after all. Also, Lizzie Bourdon (took an axe...). 3) An out and out lesbian who expresses the "women are naturally superior" attitude. Beyond sexual preference, might not have a true reason for the "all men are evil" attitude. And finally... 4) Someone emotionally broken by the men in her life. Seems to been driven to her "all men are evil" attitude.
  23. I'm sure you don't need more members of the Serpent Collective. Humm. You have any hints to make them different than the Obororus (Kong Cobra's supervillain arm)? I'm sure we can tell them appart from the Dragon Branch of VIPER (for one, only half the members are named after snakes). On the side note: there should be small notes on how to turn each member into a VIPER Dragon or CoIL Oborous. Or any other option if you wish. Mystics can be either VIPER or DEMON agents. Hi-Tech can be VIPER or any other group. Mutants and others could be either VIPER, CoIL, or anyone else. By the way: WooHoo! Bucks in 6!
  24. Humm. Who are the three lovely baddies pictured? I remember running a group of Serpent Society rejects for Marvel Superheroes rpg I called The Union of the Snake. The members were: The Cockatrice: Mutent with an always on death gaze (he wears sunglasses so he doesn't actually kill someone he doesn't want dead). He also has tallob hands. Pit Viper: Brick with a darkness generator in his suit's tail and the ability to see through it. Blindsnake: Martial artist born without eyes. Rattler: Sonic blaster in tail.
