    phoenix240 got a reaction from HeroGM in Beast Boy   
    For a "Beast Boy" type character in our games we used Growth, Shrinking and Shapeshifting to animal forms with a VPP ror animal abilities. It worked out pretty well especially since the character's changes weren't "realiistic". He didn't get all the physical based Disads of her new form or could just change quickly enough to negate them.

    Shidoku (Deadly/Lethal poison)
     
    *Shunk!*      8 inches of razor edged steel sank into the supine man’s back, pinning him to the restaurant floor like a butterfly to a collection pan. He twitched once, gurgled then lay still. Aiko rose, smoothly unsheathing her katana from flesh with s sharp jerk.    Stillness surrounded her, silence and blood, her two lifelong companions. The riot of battle, rising a fever pitch then ending a sudden, dreadful silence. It was almost like sex but slightly messier. She smirked, a crimson trickle running down her cheek like a tear. Yes, empty, quick and unsatisfying, she thought, looking over remains of her attackers... like bad sex anyway.   Aiko made her across the dining room battlefield. One Dragon remained the first one that had tried to jump her. He clawed at the sai that pinned him to the wall right below the Specials. Nice touch if she did say so herself. Shidoku grabbed his chin and turned him to face her. “You’re bleeding to death. You’ve got maybe 3 minutes? I have one question. Where are the Osakis?” She whispered in Japanese. She wanted to be perfectly clear.    He just glared for a moment then smiled, blood and spittle seeping past broken teeth. “Heihachi Santo….sends his regards.” Shidoku saw his jaw tense, the way the way muscles in his throat were working and jerked her head to the side just enough to the avoid the wad of bloody phlegm that came next. Her grip tightened and she repeated her question, adding a slow twist on the blade embedded in shoulder for emphasis. He groaned, but said nothing his eyes flickered toward the back. Answer enough.    She left the punk hanging, hurrying into the back, nauseous with terror and a sense of familiarity, like déjà vu. Shidoku rushed threw the kitchen doors and froze there, horror written on her face. Kenzo and Ms Osaki lay there, their blood congealing around their bullet riddled bodies long dead. She felt numb and her katana fell to the floor from nerveless fingers. And she was back, back in that small apartment in Osaka, years ago.                                        -------------------------------------------     Her father Ryo was a simple but honorable man. A teacher by trade and nature, he ran a local dojo. Popular enough with is students, he had the misfortune of offending one of the local crime bosses by taking insult at the thug’s advances on business and his lovely wife, an American woman named Rose.. Refusing to bow to their intimidation, Ryo fought the gangsters at every turn, by whatever means he could muster but physical violence. He was, despite his art, a peaceful man. The conflict came to a head when Santo and a group of thugs broke into Hanamura home intent on putting an end to Ryo’s interference once and for all. Aiko never saw what happened. Her parents hid her away in a closet.      But, she remembers hearing the sounds fighting, her father’s cries of rage, screams and breaking furniture as she huddled in the darkness. Aiko sank to her knees, the images playing out in her mind again. She’d pressed her eye to the door when it had gotten quiet and peered out into what used to be her home. She saw bodies, several of the thugs lay broken and moaning but her father was terribly still. Santo tossed her mother across the bed and…     Aiko’s throat tightened around a sob. Too much, but she’d seen it, watched it all until she couldn’t take anymore and she’d dashed out screaming at him to stop hurting her mother. Santo had struck her then. A casual brutal knife thrust that knocked her out and took her right eye. Her mother survived but was never the same. The scars were too deep and from that night on her mother was more a shell than a woman mechanically going threw life as Aiko’s rage grew. She poured her anger into rebellion, turning to the streets and a bad crowd. As if by some dark design, her body responded growing hard and strong. She discovered a natural instinct for violence and knack for reading people, understanding their weaknesses and how to exploit them.      It was a talent the served her well. From streetfights to underground tournaments, Aiko tried to work out of her anger on any convenient target. She’d formed a half mad plan. Work her way into the underworld to get close to Santo again and kill him. She held onto that threw long nights of fighting, pain and madness, going from underground fighter to enforcer to assassin. She found she possessed a singular talent for mayhem.    Now, looking back, she saw that part of her even grew to like it, her goal of vengeance fading in the light of acclaim and fortune. At least in part, she could always look in the mirror for reminder. It took years and allot of bodies but she got what she wanted. A shot at Santo. He’d fallen out of favor with his syndicate. One too many power grabs, a little too much attitude. There was truly no honor among criminals. His “friends” wanted him out of the picture and she was contracted to do so.      But someone tipped him off. She didn’t know who but it was all a set up to sniff out who he could trust or not. There were a few dozen heavies waiting for her when she made her stab at him. And she cut her way threw them. It was perhaps the most glorious moment of her life. Until the police arrived on the scene before she could get to her goal. She could almost feel the rage again as she instinctively tore into them as well without realizing to caught up to stop and battle spilled out into the streets of Hong Kong.    It was the screaming that stopped her, the child screaming as her parents were cut down. She’d become one of them, one of what she’d hated for years. She broke off the attack then and ran, ran from her former allies, the police, from what she’d become. It was the act of a coward, but she hadn’t cared. Anything was better than facing what she’d become.      Or so she’d thought but she didn't run far enough, maybe she should have never stopped. Her past caught up with her years later and a country away.  Her sins had come it come home too roost. The family that had taken her in was dead. Because they’d been kind to her, because she’d lied to them and because she’d been to weak to take care of her own problems.    Weeping from her remaining eye, Akio dropped to her knees as the cops closed in slowly, ordering her to freeze. Her instincts screamed at her to run, to lash out, to do something. She did nothing and said nothing.   The United States’ policy toward metahuman criminals was extremely draconian. Aiko’s mixed legal heritage  made her processing complicated, but eventually she was confined to the US’ Fortress metahuman criminal containment facility, a bleak slab of reinforced concrete and steel located in virtually unknown area far from civilization and hope. It wasn’t a prison, it was a landfill where the rejects of society were dumped to rot.      Akio was less than a model prisoner; you couldn’t be one and survive very long. But she didn’t make more trouble than it took and no one died. After two years, certain sectors of the government remembered her and found a use for her talents. A skilled operative always had uses. One with few options and total expendability along with superhuman powers even more so. Akio was given an offer she’d had to have been a fool to refuse: a chance to get out of the Fortress and have something approaching freedom. Part of her still felt the need to be punished, but more so she wanted another crack at her tormentors. So why not make everyone happy? Yeah, a totally win-win situation, right? Sure…      Personality: Akio is jaded, violent and cynical. She's seen the worst side of life since a very young age and its colored her personality perhaps irrevocably. Years of living in a kill or be kill environment have made her jumpy with a healthy paranoia. She has little tolerance for social and head games and tends to be blunt and to the point. Akio also have an unbelievably foul mouth and curses fluently, often and in a couple of languages.    She has peculiar sense of honor for her background and adheres her given word. She also never forgets a debt or a favor owed in either direction. Akio has taken too many lives to be squeamish about lethal force but she's trying to learn restraint and use regulated amounts of force, but old habits die hard. Her trainers have committed at its almost like she doesn't know how -not- to kill in combat and has to work at it, but she does try if that counts for anything. Also for what its worth, she tries to minimize or eliminate any danger to innocent bystanders, particularly children. Threatening them is a certain way to earn her ire.    This is one of the reasons Shidoku disdains the use of firearms and explosives along with the fact her mutant powers don't readily increase her ability with them. Shidoku is bad with money, spending freely and is thus often broke. She figures work hard, play hard.

    Gaia
     
    Gaia is one of the newest members of the Thunder Guard. Born in an isolated neo-hippie style commune, she was born with a powerful psychic connection to the Earth and its creatures. Her psychic powers were matched by her physical might which increased exponentially as grew up. Though she loved her home, Gaia felt her powers could better the Earth and the greater good outside it and went to New Babylon to join up with other, more experienced heroes to do her part. 
     
    Gaia possesses immense physical strength and durability being practically invulnerable to conventional weaponry. Her bond with the Earth allows her to draw strength from the biosphere to renew herself and, to a limited extent others. Being bonded with the Earth, she can sense disturbances to the environment, get psychic impression from plants and the terrain itself, speak and command animals, control the weather to extent along with other druid like abilities. Her most potent is to use the power of biosphere to enhance her already formidable physical power but it takes some time to achieve and is very taxing to maintain for very long and leave her exhausted afterward. 
     
    Personality: Gaia is kind, quiet and somewhat shy, speaking little and quietly most of the time. Her compassion is nearly endless and she tries to avoid violence as much as possible. Though perhaps somewhat naive she is not foolish however.

    Vigilantes Ghost and Eisen (Iron) have worked together for years. Ghost, an ex-special forces soldier was originally hired by Esien's scientist father to bodyguard her after an assassination attempt left her critically injured. He assisted and helped train her to use her new cybernetic limbs (developed by her father) and in the combat arts and together took revenge on the organization that had tried to kill her and her father, the Russian mafia. 
     
    They've been operating together ever since protecting Hudson City from the organastatya and other criminal forces that threaten it. Originally protective of the younger woman, Ghost found his feelings for her changing over the months, growing into something deeper and intense. As her self consciousness about over her appearance and cybernetic ebbed, Eisen found her attraction her taciturn partner was changing as well but she wasn't ready to acknowledge her feelings just yet. 
    After the pair narrowly escaped an ambush by the Russian hit-man Gregor Vosnekiev and his so called “Cossacks”, Eisen and Ghost went underground to regroup. Almost being killed brought their feelings to a head, driving home the tenuous nature of their lives and how they had to seize the day because they never knew if it might be their last. And that night, the couple consummated their long simmering passion, forging a stronger bond between them but not one without complications of its own.

    Whiz Kid: Hyper kinetic thief and prankster, Whiz Kid seems to dance back and fourth across the hero/villain line as quickly as he does everything else. And for the same reason: lulz. This poster boy for reckless irresponsible youth is up for almost anything to slake his thirst for thrills and amusement. He's not violent, however, and doesn't try to kill or greatly injure his opponents (or the authorities) instead using his speed, agility and wicked but childish sense of humor to escape, evade and harass them instead. His juvenile attitude is understandable as Whiz Kids is actually 11 yrs old. His hyped up metabolism has him the build and development of a boy several years older.  Whiz kid is a frequent friendly rival/partner of the young Speedster heroine Velocity. To be clear, she is NOT his girlfriend. She is his friend who is a girl.

    Jasmine Taylor should have been a tragedy, a young life cut short in an act of callous brutality of a ravening mad man. Caught in the middle of a battle between the Sentinal 7 and the extradimonional undead wizard that called itself The Lich King. She was fell under a wave of necrotic poison intended to slay and turn its victims into zombie puppets,  cannon fodder for the dark mages armies. Hasty counter spells from the Sentinel's resident sorceress Alchemiss prevented the rise but wasn't enough to stop the slaughter. 
    With one exception. Jasmine stirred after the battle ended, rising from the carnage, moving aware...but not alive. Not anymore. At first, she felt cold then hungry, terribly hungry and the bodies that surrounded her looking soooo delicious. 
    Always a soft hearted squeamish girl (she often referred to herself a weenie) was instantly revolved to the point of crying out in at the surge of strange hungers. Her call caught the attention of Alchemiss and the looking of her aura told the sorceress she was not a typical monster but something different. There was some aspect of her mind or soul that held together under the necrotic assault, usurping its energies to maintain something like life though it couldn't stop her mortal death. 
    Alchemiss took in the horrified girl, calmed her and helped her learn more about her new state of existence. She was undead, fully aware and in control of her faculties but there was her hunger. Only flesh slaked it but fortunately any meat would do, the more rare and bloody the better and human flesh's smell called to her though her disgust at the notion is stronger (If she ever did consume human flesh, she's discover gain additional abilities but its -highly- unlikely she ever will, willingly at least.) She's learned that if she tastes someone blood she gets clairvoyant flashes of their past and current emotional state though after for uncontrollably licked the cut a friend of hers had. 
    Jasmine is much stronger than a girl of her size and build should be able to casually life hundreds of pounds and with strain up to 2 tons. Pain is at mostly annoyance and she seems to heal almost immediately for all but the grievous injury. Even those will heal giving time but regenerating requires her to dine on raw bloody meat regularly. Her “ghoul sight” allows Jasmine to see life force like as a glow and see in near absolute darkness and her sense of smell is enhanced enough to allow her to easily track by scent. 
    She may have other abilities to discover over time, for now, she is more focused on trying to be a normal as possible in spite of her transformation and continued attention of the Lich King who's seeks to bring her under his control. A number of other occult figure have also developed a fascination (or paranoid fear/hatred) for this occult oddity.

    D.O.L.L.
     
    Black Harlequin was in a slump. His latest toy creations were utter failures and frankly didn't work. After watching an old "Frankenstein" movie, he finally got the creativity he needed. He would create a living doll, in the literal sense of the word. Of course, in his case, it would be a Destructive Overly Likeable Lifeform (D.O.L.L.).
     
    Still, creating a lifeform wasn't his thing; he'd have to find someone to create it to his specifications. Being as there are still mad scientists out there, he contacted one of them with his idea. The mad scientist gleefully agreed and got to work. Time passed and D.O.L.L. was finished. Black Harlequin tested his 'toy' to see how destructive it was, and later woke up with a black eye and a broken rib. He was in pain... and elated... and in pain. She was much more powerful than any toy that he'd created. The mad scientist sheepishly apologized for the injuries; he was found dead by the police later. Black Harlequin first unleashed DOLL on a mall shortly before Halloween and caused much destruction before making a retreat due to incoming superheroes.
     
    DOLL is an artificial lifeform, appearing to be a girl in her late teens. Other than her blue skin, which is easily concealed with makeup, she is cute and adorable. However, when given a command by him, DOLL reacts much like a robot on a mission of mindless mayhem. She is strong enough to punch a tank and dent it, can jump hundreds of feet and is very durable. DOLL's energy core will last about a week before needing a recharge, taking about a day. Hence, she can fight literally for days at full power.
     
    At the moment, she understands she was created for destruction and obeys Black Harlequin, but she is slowly gaining her own personality. Black Harlequin is too crazy to notice little changes in her actions and where this will lead is unknown. If she gains any ounce of humanity, she may turn from her destructive ways and even help heroes. However, if she gets worse, Black Harlequin may not live to see how dangerous she really is.

    Jack Gadfrey was very proud of his father, who was an accomplished scientist and engineer. Unfortunately, his father felt he needed more than accolades and a comfy salary so sought out funding from VIPER for a couple of his more...ambitious projects.
     
    When those projects didn't show rapid results, the leader of the local VIPER nest decided he'd been defrauded. Mark's father and mother were assassinated in an afternoon raid on his father's home lab, a lab which VIPER cleared out almost down to the bare floors.
     
    However when Mark came home from school and found his parents' bodies, he also found a large crate in the kitchen which had been scheduled for a UPS pickup. Inside the crate, Mark found an over-sized pair of high tech gauntlet weapons, instructions on how to use them, and a large bottle of expensive liquor with an attached note of apology to the leader of the local VIPER nest for delivery taking much longer than expected.
     
    Jack drank part of the bottle of liquor to boost his courage, donned the gauntlets, and went to the address on the package to avenge his parents' death.
     
    The business at that address turned out to be little more than a VIPER front but that was more than enough for Jack to wring out the location of the actual nest from the survivor.
     
    The nest never knew what hit them.
     
    PowerJack was born.

Each past life a superhero in their own right. Sometimes the change was weird, like Andrew, the telepath, could only be channeled as his 10 year old self. She gets flashes of their lives when she shifts, past heroic deeds, successes and failures. These flashes have given her experience far beyond her years in the continuing battle against Mechanon...
  25. Thanks

    I totally want to be a contestant on So You Want To Be A Superhero. 
     
    The O'Malleys were driving through Nevada on their way to California for Jim O'Malley's mother's funeral, when their car suddenly died.  Then, the doors all locked and the radio began flipping between stations, playing just a word or phrase at a time.  "You... will not... be... harmed... you... will... listen... you... will... decide..."  Then, a bright light shone on the road in front of them, and to their surprise Nana O'Malley was standing there, carrying a large parcel and a small picnic basket.
     
    As she walked up to the car, Jim's window lowered an inch.  Nana O'Malley smiled.  "Jimmy, so nice to see you.  And my, how you kids have grown!  What are you, now, Tim, thirteen?  What a handsome young man you are!  I'm sorry I missed your high school graduation last month, Jenny, but I just couldn't travel."  Almost as an afterthought, she added, "Heather, you're looking good."
     
    "Mom," said Jim, "what are you... I thought..." 
     
    "Yes, I'm dead," she said.  "My own darn fault for smoking all those years.  But these nice alien folks came down and picked me up, said they're going to take me to a better place.  Before we go, though, I need to give you these."  She nodded at the parcel.  "They're suits, with incredible powers.  You need to use them to save the world.  There's going to be a big war if you don't find a way to stop it. I'm not sure how, but the suits will help.  I'll just put these in the trunk." She turned toward the back of the car, then stopped and waved the picnic basket.  "Oh, and I made some cookies for your trip.  I know how much you all like my snickerdoodles.  Heather, I put the recipe inside the basket, not that I expect you to use it.  But maybe Jenny might try it someday."
     
    After she placed the parcel and basket in the trunk (which had seemingly opened of its own accord), she walked back to Jim's window.  "Now, you be the brave, strong man I know you to be, Jimmy.  And you kids, listen to your parents and do good.  I'm sure I'm going to be so proud of you."  Another pause.  "Heather, I suppose you'll do as well."  She walked away, ignoring Jim's pleas for her to stop and the family's failed attempts to unlock and open the car doors.  When she got to the center of the beam of light, Nana O'Malley turned back, smiled and waved... and disappeared. 
     
    And thus was born The Omicron Family, aka the Greatest American Family.  Thankfully, they didn't lose the instruction manuals. (Well, Timmy misplaced his, but it helped having three other copies.) Using the suits, they managed to stop a rogue Air Force general from starting World War III, and went on to do many amazing things.
