  1. Operative "H" Hellstorm is certainly one of the heavy hitters of the Squad. But it can also lead to some collateral damage if he is not careful! To power him up give him a 14 d6 attack and add to the rest of the MP accordingly. Adding to the EC bring it up to 23" flight, 22/22 FF, and a 9/9 FW could also work, making him more durable in combat. To weaken him bring the MP to 11d6 and bring the EC to 18" fly, 18/18 FF, and 7/7 FW (or even no FW if you want to really weaken him!
  2. The letter is "G" My inspiration for this is City of Heroes. There was a villain type called "Gunslingers" that were leaders in "The Malta Group" They used trick pistols and had different loads, and could teleport around. Got rid of the T-port, but kept the guns. Added a samurai attitude and made him a bit bloodthirsty. He's a capable leader, medic and operative though. To power him up nastier guns and more damage classes, maybe even a Spd 6 To weaken him get rid of the ranged skill levels and ranged damage classes, and maybe even a Spd 4
  3. The great letter "F" Gurps Super Thugs had a Speedster called Blaze and so I used his background for this build. And a similar attitude, but a more benevolent attitude. To power him up add a dice or two to the AE attack (the others are really fine) and a point of Spd. And maybe some more PD and ED (Combat Luck X2 for 6 rpd / 6 red) To weaken him, get rid of the damage classes on the MA and the reduced end on the AE line attack.
  4. We come to "E". She has no code name: I wanted the Brick who gets hurt, but heals before your eyes. In a way she's like Wolverine (but prettier). And taking inspiration for Ben Grimm, I made her a hot shot pilot. To power her up a few levels of HTH, Spd of 5, and general improvement of her stats. Maybe add a Vehicle pool! To weaken her get rid of the Damage Reduction and maybe even the Reduced End on Strength

  6. I decided that I was going to get the names right. WOW! Go look at naming conventions in Argentina or Mexico! I thought I had it long with four names, Given, middle, middle, family. Mexico blew that out of the water!

  8. "D" is a seductive letter When this name was posted I thought "OK a change in Venus?" (Hey I teach science. I saw a Hoodie with SOA and thought Strongest Oxidizing Agent--- Nope Sons of Anarchy). Then he explained the name and I got my background. With her powers she can get into an organization and work from the inside. Think Black Widow with no Martial Arts (You think I'm pretty?) She has the skills and backed up with her powers, she can make almost anyone fall in love with her. To weaken her do like Belle Dex 15 Ego 20 and SPD 3 and get rid of the Reduced En
  9. Wasn't this the plot of To Serve and Protect. Heroes start becoming more and more judgmental about crime and convinced that only THEY have the solution (even if it means millions die) It turns out the heroes were cursed to let their nastiest control freak impulses out. But as you say, what if an NPC team went full on Authority. What would the Characters do?
  10. "C" is such a nice letter. Someone in the thread suggested Caterwaul and his power set. So I took inspiration from and NPC called "Banzai" a Martial Artist with Kia sonic powers and basically made him from memory. I added some Scottish touches (because if it isn't Scottish it's C#%&) and a couple of catlike touches. And made him from that bestest of countries, Canada. To weaken him make his Str 25, Dex 23 and get rid of the skills in HTH. To strengthen him we could either increase his Martial Arts (More skills and damage classes) OR more po
  11. Now onto that wonderful second letter "B" Belle is indeed inspired by "Belle" of Beauty and the Beast, ie a beautiful book worm who doesn't need a companion. Rather that going to fairy tale route, I went the "I am a modern, educated woman" route. This led me to making her an investigator with a high intelligence and a tonne of skills. And yes, she's expensive because skill monkeys are expensive. That being said, she is a top flight detective. If your team lacks an investigator, Belle would be a good NPC/Mentor for anyone who wants to take the job. To weaken Belle is ha
  12. My first offering of the Alphabet Squad. My inspiration was from the old Marvel character Nightkawk (Kyle Richmond) as well as an entry from Gramercy Island the Cormorant. Not so much a battlesuit as Iron Man, but more aerial. I hoped to make a NPC who is fairly competent even out of his armour. To weaken him make his Spd 4, get rid of the skill levels and make the MP just the blasters To strengthen him Spd 6, 15/15 armour, MP to 90 pts and blaster 12d6, 9d6 AE, 10d6 Accurate and 6d6 Entangle!
  13. I am going to start posting my versions of the Alphabet Squad on my thread called My Conversions (link): As always, constructive criticism welcome and appreciated!
  14. So I am almost ready to start posting my Interpretations. Be advised that the points for some are going to be pretty high for agent types, because, as Mr. Bennie put it, uber menchs are expensive. Lots of skills means lots of points. Also all are trained agent or received agent training after the fact. Until KS package (13 pts), PS Until Agent (3 pts), Fringe Benefits (8 pts), and basic MA (15-18 pts) all total 39 pts minimum. Then I add to that. Please feel free to correct me or give advice. Constructive criticism welcome and appreciated!
