Im going to call myself Dark Justice
Class human/ anti hero
Attributes/Powers. Well since we don't know em all yet ill use real life examples.
A cross between Bat Man and Iron Fist but who heals quickly like wolverine.
Then again im a big fan of Doctor Strange so i may throw in some magic also.

I posted about the main villain of this saved game, Nihilanth, in another thread. My rookie hero is going to be named Emerson Hrynyk (pronounced Rennick). It's a name that I heard a friend use that I though was pretty badass. I dunno about a superhero name yet though. His goal will be to defeat Nihilanth and the only attribute I figure he'll have is to fly. If your character can add attributes progressively, I'll eventually have him pick up the ability to dimension hop in order to track Nihilanth. As far as powers go, I'll likely keep him to just physical and weapon based attacks. Maybe dab a bit into magic (but I'll be having a magic-only character in my other universe, so likely not).

I have no idea. Probably won't won't until the beta's announced. But I'll tell you this much. If I use a character pre-established in my mind, my first rookie will be female. I have two characters I use for superhero movie franchises in Hollywood Mogul who are totally made up. One is the sorceress Estro Genie who fights this mad scientist obsessed with the aging process. He goes by the name of Dr. Oldham. But when I've used her in HM, she was already into her hero career, had married and was pregnant with her first child. The set-up to start her movie franchise is that she's trying to stop Oldham before her child is born and becomes affected by Oldham's latest aging scheme.
The other probably fits better. Her name is Glacia. A teenager who suddenly discovers ice powers during her senior year of high school. In her HM franchise, I start off with her having to figure out how to save the world and still be able to go to her prom. So essentially you could figure it for an origin story movie. But who knows? I might have another inspiration either later in Adam's release of the developer's journal or once I get the game and am playing it.

My first rookie hero is going to be my main Whateley Universe fic character based on me, named Verity.
Physique is baseline but growing increasingly somewhere towards physical peak (at a slow pace, since both I (and Verity by extension) are transsexual, and making one TOO lean and muscular makes it near impossible for HRT-induced physical change to manifest), and powers involve all kinds of truth-detection and forcing-others-to-be-truthful type stuff, as well as the "Devisor" trait which allows one to invent cool stuff that usually spit in the face of known physics, but not dependably reproduce it (that would involve the "Gadgeteer" trait).
Verity is the redhead in the pics.

Unrealistically nice, no deep characterization

For a moment there I mistook you for Remi and was going to make a sarcastic :eek: post, but now I see it is an actual surprise that brother cappy will be playing a sistah :D

I saw a thread on another forum about how Sheamus would be a terrible superhero, so most likely my first mission will be to prove that wrong. Either that or "me with whatever powers seem cool" >_>

My super-hero will be one I made while playing Shadowrun a long time ago.
Physical adept who uses magic to improve his body over cybernetics to get the advantage on his enemies. Stealth over brute force, attempting to expose his enemies to the police. For larger groups, especially the bad guys, he'll be an expert with a sniper rifle and a silenced small caliber handgun.
Corporate villains and Guerrilla baddies beware!
