Not at all! I almost went for having 10 PCs, but my craziness does have limits. I think.

Plus there are scenes where new PCs can easily be slotted in, so I'm treating the other applications as a reserve roster.

I also have a spare Fin Fang Foom writeup that almost saw the light of post as well, if you like! But just let me know if it comes up.

Huh. I always thought she was basically an acrobatic furry with claws.

Well, she gets her powers from a god (at least, last I checked, DC likes to reinvent its characters every fortnight), but since she has to fight Wonder Woman, she has to be strong and fast enough to rate in that sort of DC comic.

She's an archaeologist who ended up becoming the avatar of some cheetah god by an evil ritual by an evil shaman in the evil Amazon rainforest.

Except in Superfriends she's just a lady in pajamas who likes to scratch up the finish on Lex Luthor's countertops. Quoting another goon on Legion of Doom, though:

quote:

frankly I think Luthor was doing kind of a Big Brothers charity thing where he and the other two actual semi-competent supervillains basically ran an after-school program for disadvantaged villains like toyman and black manta

All but a few of the members of the Legion of Doom have actual drat super powers, the others just build killer teddy bears and guns that shoot farts or wear pajamas everywhere.

Mostly he'd phone up the Superfriends and tell them what the Legion was up to.

I'm not kidding, I've watched every episode of the Superfriends and that's about 90% of the Riddler's contribution in the episodes where he appears. He was basically an honorary member of the Justice League.

Good idea to get a supervillain receptionist, wonder if any of the others have a similar place in the team? Like toyman's only reason to be there is to take out the supervillain trash.

If Doom was monarch of Latvia there would have been no potato famine, since unlike Richards, he actually uses his inventions to benefit people.

I want to see Thor, but am worried it will be dubbed in German and I won't be able to (1) understand or (2) stop laughing at what will surely be over-the-top dubbing for Hemsworth and Blanchett.

Dear Peasants of Earth:

Enough. Enough with the humiliation. The defeats. The mind control. The possession. The cloning. The deaths. Yes, more than one death, and each more unpleasant than the last. Did you even know I was forced to work in the so-called service industry? I tried it, you know, I sought your 'Buddha', I lived a normal life for a bit, I drank of your earthly whiskey to try and numb the pain, to try and forget the day the rest of my crew was murdered by a war profiteer and a crime lord with an atomic detonation. Tragedy was my lot now. But that was not enough, no, I am bound by magic to fight, I am summoned and controlled and cajoled- it does not end. I am called forth for your holiday rituals. This world is Foom's bane, and he will have no more of it. I am the Last of the Dragon Lords, the Shatterer of the Skies, I kicked the stony hindquarters of It the Living Colossus and I wasn't even trying. Enough with your fractious, shameful world of puny pink meddlers!

Tell Richards, tell the Man in Iron, tell the green man-child, tell them no more, no more of living on this planet where I have become but a plus-size punchline. I go home to Kakaranathara. Perhaps I will find the peace the rest of my people found so easy. Or, at least, an simpler world to cow, where an old dragon can do some decent conquest. Maybe the Stonians. The Shi'ar would deserve it, at least. I have taken your spaceship, Fantastic Four. Did you forget that I came from the stars with technology far beyond yours? That I was a navigator aboard my ship? Well, either way, this 'theft' is but a pittance considering the innumerable prices I have had to pay amongst your kind. I, who made the Earth shake in my slumber! I, who stopped rivers with my thirst! I, who have burned cities to ash!

I, Fin Fang Foom!

P.S.: Here's $20 for the other monsters to split up, tell them I'll take the loss on our Earthly conquest betting pool.

Getting Ultron post together, just a quick rules q, if I'm creating something like a "course inputted, captain" asset for Corsair to use, can I use the Starjammer powerset as an additional powerset? So would it be (example):

D8 buddy, D8 Supreme AI, D8 Reflexes, D10 Starjammer-Senses, D12 Tech?

Vehicles basically act as a shared powerset that everyone crewing it can use. So you should be fine with this action, as you're acting as Corsair's co-pilot/navigator, so it's not like we're fighting over the same controls or anything.

So this is what the Timer does:

quote:

The Watcher may spend a doom die of any size to create a Timer complication. This defaults to d6, but particularly time-crunched situations (as stated in the Action Scene) may start higher. Place the Timer in the action order as if it were a Watcher character. Whenever it acts, the complication automatically steps up to the next die size. If it reaches beyond d12, it immediately doubles and moves to the doom pool, giving the Watcher the power to end the Scene. The Timer complication is also included in any Watcher reaction pool where time is a factor.

You can target the Timer Complication with whatever you can narratively justify. I can defend the same, using either the Doom Pool or NPCs. But you can't reduce it beyond D4.
