Not even at Batman standards, just below Punisher. The character in my book only survives because he has enough willpower to fuel a car. He uses blunt objects he finds around, or chemicals he mixes. I have the origin story down: But what about for mere vigilantes? So when people get mad, they swear, and drugs, partying and sex are involved.
Ragged Boy on 10 Dec at 5: They have to improvise at all times, so that would make for alot of interesting scenes. My recommendation would be not to kill off the girlfriend, but have her severely changed. Experiences like rape can drastically alter personality.
It would seem this character has some strong connections and is very intelligent burning drugs, putting gangs against each other. Or you could move into gun territory, but know your facts about guns before you use them. Ragged Boy on 06 Feb at 9: Alternatively, you could go with an opposite force of nature like fire and heat.
I like your heroes they sound like a fresh bunch, although I do agree they may not be melee suited. But, I suspect you can use Wilma and Wayne as meleeists, particulary Wayne.
Does she ever gain control? What else can she do with her gas? Could you give me a general idea of your plot? Maybe that would give me some ideas for an appropriate villain. Holliequ on 06 Feb at Depending on her backstory, I think this a bit more of a natural sounding name.
Joshua has the power to manipulate air. How exactly would this be helpful? What could he do? Heck, they seem more likely to be a liability than anything. I would reccommend changing her powers maybe something more simple, like creating poisons in her body or give her some sort of control over the gas.
Also, something about your description of her powers feels a little off to me. Sound is basically particle vibrations, right?
You could tweak your description a little to fit this for example, she has slight control over particle movement and can prevent them from entering the ear, which causes deafness. Depending on your origin story, how do you feel about a more psychic- or technological-based villain?
Pushing, pullling, flying, forming weapons, and maybe constructs, tornadoes, etc. Gesturing upward, he created a current that lifted him off the ground. Sleeping gas, knockout gas, dizzy gas, tear gas, seering gas, and maybe truth gas. Thinking back a fire villian may not be all that fresh I find fire a very uninteresting ability.
I like to draw. What makes him bad is that an alien race came to Earth looking for specimens to plant their eggs in when the eggs mature they become they permanently take over the bodies they inhabitso when he got injected and they found out he had abilities they started looking for superhumans for the queen to lay her eggs in.
But when they are immune, they force them to mine ores to build ships and weapons to capture the rest of the human race. So please tell me if you think this is a good idea and be brutal… I will keep updating.
Ragged Boy on 06 Feb at 2: Ok, that sounds like it can work as long as there are more people with powers instead of the main characters. So when he got injected with the egg, they found out that humans had powers, thus they looked for a sperhuman to implant their queen in.
So basically, he was immune and they forced him to work in a mine. Is he working for the aliens?There are some truths that I strive to preach, for lack of a better word, in today's information-culture wars propagated in our corrupt mainstream media.
