    The campaign died (like ya do), but my major plan for it was to have Penance (or rather a version of the Marvel Universe where Civil War ended up wiping out all life on the planet) as the major villain, trying to kill the New Warrior PC's in a misguided attempt to keep history from repeating itself.

    But yeah, the whole Stamford thing is one of the stupidest things in comics. Basically victim blaming of the highest priority. What galls me is that everyone was so busy blaming Speedball, that almost no one went after Nitro, the guy who actually did it. I think Wolverine hunted him a bit, and eventually Penance did track him down and stuck him in his penance suit, but that's about it.
    The worst part of it is, wasn't it revealed that the people who set Nitro up for this, and thus are the real villains of the whole of Civil Wars despite never being mentioned in it, were Damage Control? Yes. The background joke of the Marvel Universe. Caused the deaths of dozens of children.

    And, really, I don't get it. I can see the public reacting negatively to heroes and to the Warriors specifically. But no one, not even the anti-registration side, not one person mentions that the people there were for the most part pros at this and that they were prepared for the fight. The only reason it happened was that one of the guys there had a power upgrade they had no way of knowing about.

    Yeah, basically, even if the AVENGERS had been there, the tragedy would have been the same.

    Stormson: Yeah, I left some notes for the characters in my builds of them, but I don't want to bother doing official ones . A pile of D-League characters wielding devices that'll never be seen again? I'll pass.

    Mageofthesands: Really? I figured I must have at some point. I'll check. Edit: Yup- here he is: The Mandarin.

    -Water Snake joins the new New Warriors team after watching her people slaughtered by the High Evolutionary's minions. A Handmaiden of Lady Namora (Namor's cousin, and a 1950s heroine), she's a trained fighter, and uses Hydrokinesis to do battle, making her a combination Blaster/Scrapper build. There's little else to go on with her, though.

    Also- the High Evolutionary. I am fairly certain that there has never been a good comic book story involving him. Ever.

    Involving? Sure. He had a bit part in the second Annihilation.

    Had a major part in? I'm honestly blanking. Which is weird, guy's got a good look, a decent backstory, and a mountain full of animal men knights with sky cycles. He should be glorious.

    Sun Girl (Selah Burke)



    SUN GIRL II (Selah Burke)
    Created By:
    Christopher Yost & Marco Checchetto
    First Appearance: Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #1 (July 2013)
    Role: Rookie Hero
    PL 8 (104)
    STRENGTH
    2 STAMINA 3 AGILITY 3
    FIGHTING 6 DEXTERITY 4
    INTELLIGENCE 4 AWARENESS 2 PRESENCE 2

    Skills:
    Expertise (Science) 4 (+8)
    Insight 2 (+4)
    Perception 3 (+5)
    Technology 7 (+11)

    Advantages:
    Improved Aim, Inventor, Ranged Attack 5

    Powers:
    "Flight Suit" (Flaws: Removable) [23]
    Flight 6 (120 mph) (12)
    Blast 8 (16)
    -- (28 points)

    "Light Guns" (Flaws: Easily Removable) [13]
    Blast 7 (Extras: Multiattack) (21 points)

    Offense:
    Unarmed +6 (+6 Damage, DC 21)
    Energy Blast +8 Area (+8 Damage, DC 23)
    Initiative +3

    Defenses:
    Dodge +8 (DC 18), Parry +8 (DC 18), Toughness +3, Fortitude +4, Will +5

    Complications:
    Relationship (Lightmaster)- Selah is the daughter of a mostly-unknown Jobber Villain.

    Total: Abilities: 52 / Skills: 16--8 / Advantages: 7 / Powers: 46 / Defenses: 11 (104)

    -Seriously, Yost added TWO prior characters of his from other series into The New Warriors. Oh well- writer's prerogative. Selah Burke is possessed by the Carrion Virus in an issue of Superior Spider-Man Team-Up, and is saved by Ock-Spidey- it turns out that she's the previously-unknown daughter of jobber villain Lightmaster. In return, she saves Spider-Man from the previously-Mind Controlled Superior Six (Chameleon, Electro, Sandman, Mysterion & Vulture). Finding Otto condescending, she leaves on bad terms. By this point, she's become the new Sun Girl, taking the name from an old ally of the Jim Hammond Human Torch. Next, she appears on the relaunched New Warriors book.

    -Burke is a good engineer who's invented her own gear- a Blaster Suit and Light Guns. This is a bit redundant, so I made one stronger, and the other Multiattack in addition to being Easily Removable.

    What exactly is a randomizing website? Could make some interesting scenarios if it's what it sounds like.

    Www.random.org/lists. Generally good for randomized stuff for tournaments or Battle Royals.
