The bad man desires arbitrary power.


What moves the evil man
is the love of injustice.

- John Rawls

When bad men combine, the good must associate;


else they will fall one by one,
an unpitied sacrifice
in a contemptible struggle.

- Edmund Burke

ANUBIS (Azis)
Sheikh Ahmad Azis, Priest/Industrialist
Mystically altered human, Villain

FIGHTING: EXCELLENT (20)


AGILITY: GOOD (10)
STRENGTH: REMARKABLE (30)
ENDURANCE: REMARKABLE (30)
REASON: GOOD (10)
INTUITION: GOOD (10)
PSYCHE: INCREDIBLE (40)

HEALTH: 90
KARMA: 60
RESOURCES: REMARKABLE (30)
POPULARITY: 0

Known Powers:

Enhanced Abilities: Anubis had superhuman strength and


stamina.

Resurrection: Araamses was returned to life by the spirit of


Khonshu, after being entombed for thousands of years.

Equipment:

Unique Weapon (Helmet): Tech Level: Remarkable (30),


Cost: Excellent (20). As Anubis, Azis wore a high-tech golden
helmet/mask in the image of the jackal headed god. The
helmet had Excellent (20) material strength and would
malfunction if it sustained 20 or more points of damage above
its armor rank. When damaged in this way, it would burn Azis’
face and force him to discard it until it was repaired.

 Lasers: The eyes of the helmet could project


powerful laser beams to inflict up to Amazing (50)
damage at a range of 2-areas. Anubis could only fire
this weapon once every 3 rounds. Because he is
automatically aiming at whatever he’s looking at,
Anubis hits on the Remarkable (30) column.

Staff: Azis carried short walking stick with a gold jackal-head


handle. The head of the staff could spray poisonous cyanide
gas into the face of an opponent at close range.

 The victim must make an Endurance FEAT against


Remarkable (30) intensity to be unaffected.
 If the victim fails this FEAT the poison inflicts
Excellent (20) damage each minute for 6 minutes.
The victim can attempt a FEAT each minute to avoid
the effects.
 The victim must make an Endurance FEAT against
Incredible (40) intensity to avoid being Stunned for 2
rounds, Remarkable (30) for 4 rounds, Excellent (20)
8 rounds or Good (10) for 16 rounds.

Talents: Archeology (Egyptian), Business/Finance, Falconry,


Languages, Leadership, Occult Lore.

5
Guards: Anubis had a small army of fanatical soldiers willing
to die for him. His guards and servants wore ancient Egyptian
style clothing and kept poison cyanide capsules inside a hollow
tooth so they could kill themselves to avoid capture. His guards
had all Good (10) rank FASE abilities, Poor (4) Reason and
Psyche, Typical (6) Intuition, 40 Health points and 14 Karma.
His guards carried;
 Ancient Egyptian style daggers (Good (10) damage,
Good (10) material).
 Short swords or spears (Excellent (20) damage,
Good (10) material).
 Excellent (20) rank metal shields (attacks that inflict
greater damage punch through the thin mental and
strike the guard for full damage).
 Snare-staffs that allow them to place a noose around
their target’s neck and choke them into
unconsciousness. The snare requires Good (10) rank
Strength FEAT to escape, break or pull away from the
guard and increases +1CS each time the number of
guards attacking together is doubled (+1CS for 2,
+2CS for 4, +3CS for 8, etc).
 (see Optional Rules for
/Choking/Strangulation/Drowning).

Background:

In ancient Egypt, Araamses the brother of the Pharaoh Seti


had been the high priest of Anubis the god of the dead.
Araamses has spilled blood to capture the throne after the
Pharaoh’s death, but was captured and buried alive in Seti’s
tomb. Thousands of years later Khonshu, the god of the moon
appeared before Marc Spector inside Seti’s tomb, resurrecting
him and making him his agent on Earth as Moon Knight.
Unknown to Spector, Khonshu’s presence also revived
Araamses, who then lived among the Bedouin tribes and
became a Sheikh. He recovered ancient royal treasure buried
in the desert and became wealthy, creating the identity of
Ahmad Azis and built a palace on an island off Kuwait. Azis
intended to become a conqueror and the Pharaoh of the entire
world, but feared that Khonshu and his avatar Moon Knight
would oppose him. Azis bought Spector’s statue of Khonshu at
an auction, after having a rival bidder murdered. Azis assumed
his persona of Anubis and sent his assassin to kill Spector who
defeated him. Guided by the mystic priests of Khonshu, Moon
Knight infiltrated Anubis’ island but was captured by his guards.
Anubis prepared to destroy the statue of Khonshu and sacrifice
Moon Knight but Spector’s strength became amplified by the
moon and he broke free. Moon Knight battled Anubis and his
guards as a sandstorm engulfed the fortress temple. Moon
Knight damaged
Anubis’ helmet, forcing him to withdraw before the
sandstorm engulfed and destroyed the temple, presumably
killing Anubis but leaving Moon Knight and the statue of
Khonshu unharmed.

 The snare-staff noose forces the victim to make


an Endurance FEAT against Typical (6) rank, then
+1CS difficulty every 2 rounds, to avoid being
Stunned.
 Each time the victim fails an Endurance FEAT
he/she is Stunned for that round and takes
damage equal to half the necessary FEAT
intensity. Each failure means the next necessary
FEAT is +1CS higher.
 Another FEAT is required at -2CS this Stun
intensity each round to avoid falling unconscious
for 15 minutes (allies with the First Aid talent can
attempt to resuscitate the victim, reducing the time
spent unconscious to 3 minutes). Both these
FEATS are checked with one roll.
 If the victim is taken by surprise, the Endurance
FEATS begin +2CS higher.
 When the victim regains consciousness he
recovers 1/2 the Health he lost from choking.
 All these difficulties; damage, Endurance FEAT
Intensities, Strength FEAT to escape, etc.
increase +1CS each time the number of guards
attacking together is doubled (+1CS for 2, +2CS

stores vast amounts of data in its mind(s).

Talents: Both Bi-Beasts were built to contain all knowledge of


Avain culture (lower head) and warfare (upper head), and it
receives a +1CS in matters of Strategy and Tactics. The
original beast was programmed without scientific knowledge
and had Good (10) Reason. The second has the Engineering
and Genetics talents.

BACKGROUND:

Bi-Beast is the second such android built by the humanoid race


of bird-people who inhabited Sky-Island. The androids were
designed to be repositories of the race’s cultural, military and
scientific knowledge should they perish. The original Bi-Beast
was lost when Sky-Island was destroyed during a battle
between the Hulk and AIM. When the second Bi-Beast was
activated, this one containing scientific knowledge the original
lacked, he sought to avenge the destruction of his city on
mankind. Some of the Bird People were found to have survived
in suspended animation, and the Bi-Beast returned to the new
Sky-Island. He has since been seen working as a henchmen
for various villains, and socializing with other criminals in the
bars of Bagalia, possibly establishing allies so that he can
continue to plot against mankind.

mankind but has since become more of a henchmen for other
villains. He sometimes picks a fight with heroes to just prove
his superiority

Known Powers

Dimensional Travel: Brigand's hideout is the size of a large


room/vault and is located in a small pocket dimension that he
is able to access from a specific location outside of New York.
It's unknown if his dimensional travel is technological or magic
based.

Magic: It’s unclear how much mystical knowledge Brigand


possesses. At the time of his confrontation with Dr. Strange,
Brigand was employed by another sorcerer and he may have
provided the means to infiltrate the Sanctum Sanctorum.
Hitler’s enchanted handgun was something he had sought out
and previously acquired himself, indicating he has at least
some knowledge of mysticism or the occult.

Psi-Screen: The origin or Brigand’s Unearthly (100) rank


mental defenses are unknown. They may be the result of
training, but his power rank makes that unlikely. His Psi-Screen
may be provided for him by a sorcerer who employed him or
he may have purchased the ability or been in possession of a
mystical artifact that provided this protection. Brigand told Dr.
Strange he didn’t know Baron Mordo but generated a mental
image of him. It’s possible Mordo had employed him in the past
and placed an enchantment on his mind to protect his secrets.
When an opponent tries to probe Brigand's mind they
are threatened by their own fears and enemies but a Reason
FEAT enable them to recognize flaws an inconsistencies in the
illusion granting them a +2CS their Psyche FEAT to see
through the illusion. Even when they see through his illusion
they can not read or probe his mind unless they can make a

know how to reprogram and repair them.
Brigand has enough mystical knowledge to slip past
the defenses of Dr. Strange’s sanctum and surprise the doctor
himself, though, he may have had help from an actual sorcerer
and has stated that he hates magic.

Background: Brigand is a professional thief who was hired by


a corrupt pharmaceutical company to steal from Dr. Strange a
mystic elixir that they feared could cure all diseases and put
them out of business. Brigand infiltrated Strange’s Sanctum,
bypassing it’s mystic defenses and took Strange by surprise.
Brigand shot Strange with an enchanted pistol, nearly killing
him and escaped with the elixir. Strange and his allies tracked
Brigand to his pocket-dimension hideout and entered his mind
to learn the identity of his employer. Strange overcame
Brigand's mental defenses and threatened to wipe out his
memories. Brigand relented, revealed that he was hired by
Nicodemus West and Strange left him permanently trapped
inside his own mind.
Brigand is a professional and reputable thief for hire
who has managed to keep a low profile avoiding conflict with
super heroes while developing a reputation among the
underworld. He a remarkably capable thief having stolen
technology from Stark Industries and the Baxter Building,
penetrated the defenses of Dr. Strange’s sanctum and nearly
killing him.

PSYCHE: GOOD (10)

HEALTH: 120
KARMA: 36
RESOURCES: GOOD (10)
POPULARITY: 0

Powers:

Density Manipulation: Bruiser can shift his center of gravity to


any point of his body, allowing the following Power Stunts:

 Body Armor: Bruiser has somewhat greater than


normal mass, density and durability that provide him
with Good (10) protection from blunt physical attacks.

 Kinetic Amplification: Bruiser can focus all his body


weight behind his punches or kicks to inflict Incredible
(40) damage. With a Power FEAT roll on Incredible
(40) he can accomplish this instantly, otherwise using
this power counts as one action/attack for that round
in addition to the attack itself.

 Leaping: By shifting his mass while running Bruiser


can leap with Incredible (40) rank (40 feet up/across,
60 feet down). With a Power FEAT roll he can quickly
shift his mass to his feet/legs and deliver a
Groundstrike or Shockwave on landing.

 Unmovable: Bruiser can shift his center of gravity to


make it more difficult to move or throw him. His
Endurance increases to Amazing (50) rank (no Health
change) against attempts to Slam (but not Stun),
throw, flip or tackle him. This feat also makes it harder
for opponents to find leverage and Bruiser gains a
+1CS to any Wresting rolls. With a Power Feat roll on
Incredible (40) he can accomplish this instantly,
otherwise it counts as one action/attack for that round.

Weakness: Shifting his mass puts intense strain on Bruiser's


bones and any opponent with Weakness Detection or similar
powers, including Daredevil's enhanced senses and radar can
focus on and strike the point of maximum stress, potentially
breaking his bones. If the hero can detect the right place to
strike and make a Yellow Fighting FEAT, Bruiser would need
to make an Endurance FEAT against the hero's damage rank
+3CS, or his bone is shattered and he is incapacitated with
pain.

Talents: Martial Arts A, B, C, Wrestling

15
Background: The nature and origin of Bruiser's powers are
unrevealed. Bruiser is a super-powered mercenary working his
way through a list of increasingly challenging opponents he
wants to fight. He has worked for A.I.M., HYDRA, the Secret
Empire, the Serpent Society and the Kingpin, and his costume
is covered with their various logos. While working for the
Midas Corporation, Bruiser fought and defeated Daredevil who
broke Bruiser's knee in their next fight.
Bruiser is overconfident, likes to boast in a fight but is
a highly skilled combatant.

Baron Wolfgang von Strucker (future leader of Hydra) came
across a stranded extraterrestrial alien of the Gnobian race
outside Gruenstadt, Germany. The telepathic Gnobian mother,
bonded with Strucker’s mind and was psychically poisoned by
his evil, as would be all her progeny. Strucker’s soldiers
slaughtered everyone in the town to conceal his discovery
shortly before Sergeant Nick Fury and his Howling
Commandos arrived and drove them off. The Gnobians
remained in stasis inside their ship for decades until awakened
by Wilhelm Schmitt, a scientist who has been with Strucker in
1944, and Werner von Strucker, the Baron’s son. The two had
intended to undo Strucker’s influence. Imprinted with the elder
Strucker’s memories, the Gnobians emerged as the Death’s
Head Squadron, modeling themselves on Strucker’s SS
soldiers and set out to fulfill his goals of Nazi conquest,
genocide, the destruction of the Western democracies and
revenge against Nick Fury. The Death’s Head troopers
attacked and killed Fury’s squad-mate and friend “Dum Dum”
Dugan and his wife, and kidnapped a number of his SHIELD
allies. They formed alliances with Hydra and other Neo-Nazi
groups (then turned on them for being weak). Death’s Head
troopers attacked an NATO military base, slaughtered
hundreds of soldiers and plotted to launch an alien Kree
missiles at a major city to kill millions while luring Fury onto
their base.
Schmitt had raised an untainted Gnobian, nicknamed Lump,
who along with Fury’s allies was able to connect to the mind of
the Gnobian mother who was briefly freed of Strucker’s
influence and killed herself along with all her progeny.

The empathic Gnobians were by nature, gentle,


benevolent, curious explorers. Their contact with Strucker’s
mind poised their consciousness with bloodthirsty hate. There
were several dozen if not hundreds of Death’s Head troopers.

Talents: Mystic Origin

Background: The Eye Killers are "Earth demons", evil


supernatural predators known in the mythology of certain North
American Indian tribes.

Doctor Strange encountered a pair of Eye Killers


disguised as humans in New York when they murdered his
friend. He found they could resist most of his most powerful
spells until he was able to banish them into another dimension.

Storm encountered a pair (possibly the same pair)


while she was de-powered and traveling in another dimension.
She was able to use fire to destroy them.

In their natural form the Eye Killers are 20 to 30-foot-


long green serpents with the feathered head of an owl and the
forelegs of a mountain lion. There are few Eye Killers left on
Earth and they only travel in pairs, usually as mates or with
siblings. They have served powerful masters in the past and
will do so again if they believe it will lead to the return of the old
ways, a low level of civilization, steeped in superstition.

Background: The creature known as the Hel Wolf has


referred to itself as a Fire-Giant but is more likely a demon
from the realm of Muspelheim. Anatomically the creature
resembles a cross between a giant dog and a dragon, though
its offspring more resemble Earth dogs.
The Hel Wolf was a servant of the Fire-Demon Surtur
and may have been created by him. The Hel Wolf was held in
captivity by the Asgardians when Odin planned to use it as a
weapon. In need of allies, Loki helped the Wolf escape and
when it tried to eat him he used Thor’s magical bridal to break
him and force the Wolf to serve him as long as it lived. Using
the Wolf as a steed, Loki journeyed to Hel and had the Hel
Wolf battle the giant guard dog Garm. In order to next travel to
Limbo the Wolf had to die and Loki had his allies stab it to
death. Arriving in Limbo, the Wolf having “died”, had fulfilled his
oath to Loki and immediately returned to trying to kill him. The
Wolf was eaten by Surtur but was later restored and sent to
hunt Loki again. He was again later killed by Odin and then
restored to life once again to serve him. The Hel Wolf was later
seen under the command of Hella, the goddess of death.
The Hel Wolf is a vicious, hate-filled creature always
looking for someone to murder and eat.

John was working for CCI (Consolidated

working for the same corporation. Stanley was assigned to
provide security for an isolated corporate vault in the Alaskan
tundra. Stanley took his job seriously, believing the contents of
the vault to be highly valuable, unaware it was actually empty.
This misunderstanding led him to refuse to admit Power Man
and Iron Fist and engaging them in battle . As a result of their
fight, Stanley’s weapon was damaged and he died when it
overloaded and exploded. John, who may have already been
mentally unbalanced, was enraged at his brother’s death and
the fact that he learned about it through a condolence letter
from the CEO. He attempted to murder the CEO, Maxine
Walters, killing several civilians and French policemen along
the way. He was defeated by Iron Fist and sentenced to life in
prison. He soon escaped, killing a number of guards and
inmates and somehow acquired the same type of CCI security
battle-suit and weaponry that his brother had. He targeted
Power Man and Iron Fist, rampaging through New York, and
was again defeated and arrested.

Phil attended college with Bruce Banner and was both envious
of and idolized him. Phil sought military funding for his gamma-
ray based weapon but was passed over in favor of Banner.
Phil spent years attempting to recreate the conditions that
transformed Banner into the Hulk and became physically and
mentally twisted by the process. His mind split between two
personalities, Phil Sterns and superhuman Madman. As a
research scientist Sterns approached Banner and offered to
help free him of the Hulk. Phil Sterns’ personality, still
independent but subservient to the Madman personality
reluctantly injected Banner with a poison capable of killing
even the Hulk. Weakened by the poison the Hulk tracked
Madman to his lair. While Madman had the upper hand, Phil
Sterns’ personality briefly exerted itself and told the Hulk where
to find the cure. Madman then apparently overwhelmed and
“killed” Sterns. The Hulk poisoned Madman and left him for
dead. Madman survived and again attempted to kill the Hulk in
Scotland before flying to England where he kidnapped the
Prince to extort the government to declare him the new king.
He was defeated by the Hulk and Motormouth and
disappeared under a collapsing bridge.

collapse. Everyone inside the building takes Good (10)
damage for a single floor of light building materials; wood,
plaster, etc. Remarkable (30) damage for buildings made
mostly of brick or Incredible (40) damage for buildings made of
concrete and steel. For each doubling the height of the building
beyond 1 story add +1CS to damage to a maximum of +3CS.

Victims are buried under the ruble by a weight equal to the


damage modified by a 1D10 roll: (1-5) weight equals -2CS
damage (6-10) weight equals -3CS damage. Moses is also
immune to all these effects.

Example: Heroes trapped in a collapsed skyscraper could face


Unearthly (100) damage (Incredible (40) material +3CS for
building 8 stories or higher) and have to dig themselves out
from under rubble weighing (1-5) Amazing (50) or (6-10)
Incredible (40) rank.

A two story brick building could cause Incredible (40) damage


and pin the hero beneath (1-5) Excellent (20) or (6-10) Good
(10) weight.

There’s always the chance that the victim gets lucky and is in a
part of the building that somewhat protects him/her from the
collapse; debris is blocked by a door frame, a piece of furniture
or equipment or support beams fall in such a way it creates a
pocket of safety. In a one story building collapse there is a 50%
chance the hero takes half damage and this chance is halved
(rounded down) for each doubling of the height of the building
(25% for two stories, 12% for four stories, 6% for eight, etc.).

Background: Moses Magnum is an international arms dealer


and terrorist who was originally only concerned with acquiring
wealth and power through his illicit sales and extorting nations
to surrender authority to him.

He became an agent of Apocalypse after the mutant


mastermind saved Magnum from death and imbued him with
his seismic powers so that he would spread chaos. Magnum
once threatens to sink the entire nation of Japan and briefly
ruled the small African nation of Canaan, establishing it as
proposed homeland for disenfranchised African Americans,
though his real goal was to invade neighboring Wakanda to
steal its Vibranium.

As punishment for perceived failures, for a time,


Apocalypse removed Magnum’s ability to control his powers so
that he caused earthquakes whenever he was in contact with
the earth, forcing him to remain on board a ship at sea. His
power have since returned to normal.

Inexplicably, In spite of being a known international


criminal, Moses Magnum was invited to participate in the Pan-
African Congress on the Treatment of Super-Humans, in
response to the American superhuman civil war, possibly given
diplomatic immunity by a host government.

Henchmen: Magnum maintains a small army of elite
mercenaries for missions of conquest and terrorism and to help
promote his armaments business. A typical mercenary has all
Good (10) rank FASE abilities, Typical (6) rank RIP abilities ,
40 Health and 18 Karma.

These mercenaries normally wear Typical (6)


rank Body Armor, and carry various oversized guns that either
fire projectiles that inflict Remarkable (30) damage at a 4-area
range or energy blasts for Incredible (40) damage with a 2-
area range.

Battle Suits: Some of Magnum’s private army wear heavy


battle suits called Magnum Shells that have a Tech Level of
Incredible (40), a Cost of Amazing (50), and the following
abilities:

Guns: The Magnum Shell armors are outfitted with multiple
guns on their gauntlets and shoulders, including:

 Machine Guns: Remarkable (30) damage, 6-area


range, burst can hit 1D10+2 targets in the same area,
targets are -1CS to Dodge and these guns can fire up
to 4 bursts.

 Energy Cannons: Blasters inflict Incredible (40)


energy damage at a range of 4-areas.

Flight: The armor's boot jets allow them to fly at Amazing (50)
airspeed (40 areas/round, 600 Mph).

Shock Shells: The armor can fire a barrage of powerful


concussion munitions at the ground to create shockwaves and
keep opponents off balance. All targets in a 4-area range take
Typical (6) force damage, and are reduced by one Color result

INTUITION: EXCELLENT (20)
PSYCHE: POOR (4)

HEALTH: 140 (182)


KARMA: 30
RESOURCES: POOR (4)
POPULARITY: -30

Body Armor: Most of Nuke’s skeletal system has been


replaced with cybernetics and his skin is a type of bullet
resistant plastic. He has Remarkable (30) protection from all
physical and energy damage. Nuke is immune to Nerve Strikes.

Extra Body Parts (Heart): Nuke has a second artificial heart


that adds 30% to his Health score, allows him to recover up to
2 lost Endurance ranks per day and at the Judge’s discretion
any Kill result that targets Nuke’s torso may be considered only
as a Stun result.

Pills: Nuke’s handlers give him amphetamines (“reds”) and


other pills ostensibly to control his adrenal levels and enhance
his combat abilities. It has however been revealed that these
pills are placebos and have no real effect except to maintain
his psychological dependency.

Resistance (Heat and Radiation): Somehow Nuke’s body


survived the detonation of a tactical nuclear weapon inside his
torso. His body did not contain the explosion which destroyed
the faculty around him and appeared to have killed him. Even
some of his artificial skin and organs survived the blast and he
may in fact not have died. If so, his cyborg body has Shift-Y
(200) Resistance to Heat and Radiation.

Equipment:

Unique Weapon (Gun: Betsy I): Nuke's original weapon was


a .50 Cal. machine gun named "Betsy". Betsy inflicted In (40)
damage at a range of 8 areas and required a minimum of
Excellent (20) Strength to fire accurately without mounting it on
a tripod or vehicle (-2CS to shoot for each rank or Strength
lower than Excellent (20), though Nuke would often fire it one-
handed at -1CS to hit.

 The machine gun could fire a total of 4 bursts before


reloading (takes 2 rounds to reload). Each burst can
hit 1D10 -2 targets (min. of 1) in the same area.

 The gun had an under slung launcher that fired up to


4 Incredible (40) damage napalm (incendiary)
grenades (hits all targets in a 20 foot radius), and had
a range of 7 areas.

39
 Betsy could fire up to 4 rocket propelled grenades with a
range of 7 areas, that inflicted Incredible (40) damage
with a 20 foot blast radius.

 An LED counter on the side of the gun kept count of


fatalities and the weapon had Excellent (20) material
strength.

Betsy II: Nuke's second weapon of choice is a rotating


multi-barrel mini-gun that inflicts Amazing (50) damage at
a range of 12 areas and requires a minimum of
Remarkable (30) Strength to fire accurately without
mounting it on a tripod or vehicle (-2CS to shoot for each
rank or Strength lower than Remarkable (30).

 The mini-gun can fire a maximum of 3 bursts


before reloading (takes 2 rounds). Each burst can
hit 1D10 +2 targets in the same area.

 Betsey II had the same under-slung grenade-


launcher as his original weapon.

Background: Frank Simpson was kidnapped, surgically
enhanced and brainwashed into a berserk super-soldier by the
Weapon Plus program. He served as a soldier during the
Vietnam War where he was tortured and his already delusional
mind become more unhinged, seeing any target he was sent
after as enemies of America. Under the command of a corrupt
general, Nuke was manipulated by the Kingpin into fighting
Daredevil and Captain America. He was later transformed into
a cyborg and attacked civilians in an Eastern European country
where the US was perceived to have recently lost a war,
enraged that American soldiers would have died for nothing.
He was defeated by captain America and taken to a shield
holding faculty, fulfilling a plot by the anti-capitalist terrors
known as the Iron Nail, who detonated a nuclear bomb hidden
inside Simpson’s cyborg body. Nuke somehow survived and
tried to collect Madam Hydra’s bounty on Wolverine.

Simpson is violently insane, delusional, conditioned to


follow orders and is blindly patriotic. He sees his actions as
fighting for America and his fellow soldiers and can sometimes
be appealed to if convinced he’s not acting in the United
State’s best interest.

Powers

Body Armor: The Nullitor’s armored robotic body has


Monstrous (75) protection from physical damage and Amazing
(50) protection from energy attacks.

Environmental Independence: As a robot, Nullitor has no


need for food, water, air or rest and is immune to all disease
and toxins.

Growth (Permanent): The Nullitor stands between 20 and 30


feet tall. Normal sized opponents gain a +2CS to hit him, are -
1CS to avoid being Slammed by him while he is +1CS to avoid
being Slammed by them. Edged or projectile attacks that
penetrate and ignore his body armor are reduced -2CS in
damage because of his size and bulk.

Energy Generation: Nullitron can generate an Amazing (50)


damage energy attack from his hands on contact.
Energy Refection: Shift-Y (200). Nulitron and hurl a null-
energy sphere at a target that will engulf it and turn it’s own
energy back against it. Nulitron must throw this sphere to a
range of 2-areas and hits on the Incredible (40) column.

 When the field surrounds an object that generates,


stores or emits energy (including the mystic energy of
Thor’s hammer) all of the stored energy is released
and turned inward against the object. The object
takes damage equal to it’s maximum output/damage
rank +1CS.

 The object takes damage each round until it is


destroyed or it’s stored energy is exhausted (1D10 +1
rounds or Judge’s destruction). If the object’s material
strength is less than the damage taken the object
disintegrates.

 Example: An Amazing (50) damage energy rifle inside


the nullification sphere would take Monstrous (75)
damage each round for 1D10 +1 rounds. If it has less
than Monstrous (75) material strength, it disintegrates
in 1 round.

 If the object’s material strength is greater than the


damage taken, the energy is turned back against
anyone holding the object, inflicting damage equal to
its maximum damage/output rank.

 If Nullitor misses his throw, the energy sphere is


reabsorbed by him and can attempt to use it again in
2 rounds.

Background: The Nullitor was designed by Zarrko


(the Tomorrow Man) to be sent back in time to defeat
Thor to prevent a possible future time-line where Thor
ruled the Earth as a tyrant.

Nullitor rampaged through New York until Thor


confronted him. The robot gained the upper-hand,
surrounding Thor’s hammer in his energy nullification
sphere and turned it’s energy against him. Thor Girl
arrived, disrupted Nullitor’s energy sphere and helped
Thor destroy the robot.

The robot is mostly referred to as Nullitor but it was


called Nullitron at least once. The robot is supremely
confident in its power and likes to boast in combat.

 The energy is turned against the object whether it was


emitting, firing or manipulating energy at the time or
not.

 Presumably the nullification sphere can be used


against living beings with energy
generation/projection powers. Living beings would
have an innate resistance to his/her own energy
type/frequency and take less damage. The target
would take damage equal to his/her maximum
damage/output rank +1CS, minus their maximum rank.
In other words: the difference between the hero’s
maximum rank and the next rank up. The hero would
take this damage even if normally invulnerable to this
type of energy as his body's stored energy is painfully
burnt off.

 Example: Havoc can project Monstrous (75) rank


plasma energy so he would take Unearthly (100)
damage (maximum rank +1CS) minus Monstrous (75)
(his maximum rank), and lose 25 Health points per
round for 1D10+1 rounds.

 Victims must make an Endurance FEAT each round


against their maximum energy rank or be
incapacitated with pain.

Body Armor: Ord's dense alien flesh provides him with


Excellent (20) protection from physical and energy damage.
Ord wears partial metal armor that enhances his protection to
Incredible (40) for most of his body, except his exposed head.

Hyper-Hearing: Ord's race has superhumanly acute hearing at


Amazing (50) rank.

Flight: Ord could fly at Excellent (20) airspeed. Other natives


of the Breakworld do not demonstrate the ability to fly without
vehicles and Ord probably made use of technology in his
armor.

Psi-Screen: Ord’s alien thoughts are indecipherable to


humans so that Telepaths can not control, read or fool his mind
with mental illusions. His resistance is Unearthly (100) rank.

Equipment/Technology:

Neutralizer: The Breakworlders developed a chemical


compound that can neutralize the powers of Earth mutants at
Class-1000 rank. A partial formula, made without all the
necessary materials will have short term effects lasting a few
days, the full "cure" will permanently remove their powers. Ord
wore injectors to deliver the cure on the knuckles on the back
of his gloves.

Resurrection: The warrior people of the Breakworld, though


they both shun and lack most forms of medicine and medical
care, can perform a ceremony to transfer the life-force of one
or more people into the dead body of another to resurrect them
from the dead. The total amount of Health points sacrificed
must equal the original maximum Health points of the person
to be brought back. Normally slaves are sacrificed and
culturally the recipient and those sacrificed are viewed as
"untouchables", socially the lowest of the low. By Earth
standards Breakworld "technology" is closer to magic. If the
character sacrificing life-force has more Health points than the
one being resurrected, he can survive the process but his
ability ranks are permanently reduced.

Body Armor: Piecemeal‘s body is an amalgamation of body


parts, copied, possibly cloned from other super-villains
including Attuma and the Abomination. Their thick hide and
dense musculature, as well as the bionic arms of the cyborg
Silvermane, provide him with Remarkable (30) protection from
all physical and energy damage.

Energy Projection: Piecemeal can project bolts of Monstrous


(75) damage energy from his hands, with a 3-area range. He
can produce a single blast once every 3 rounds.

Claws: Piecemeal has clawed hands modeled after


Sabertooth that have Incredible (40) material strength and
allow him to inflict Incredible (40) Edged damage.

Tail: Piecemeal has a long prehensile tail that he can use to


inflict Amazing (50) Blunt damage or grapple with Incredible
(40) Strength.

Mind Drain: Piecemeal can drain psychic energy from his


victim's on contact. Victims must make a Psyche FEAT vs.
Incredible (40) or suffer a -1CS to all actions for 1 round,
Remarkable (30) or suffer -2CS to all actions for 2 rounds,
Excellent (20) to avoid being incapacitated and unable to act

for 20 minutes and another vs. Amazing (50) Intensity or lose
-1CS Psyche each round.
If the victim’s Psyche is reduced to Shift-0 the body is
reduced to a withered husk and dies.
Because he is a synthetic being Piecemeal does not
gain Health points from the Psyche absorbed, but uses this
power in an attempt to understand life through other's
experiences and emotions. Piecemeal absorbs a percentage of
the victim’s memories equal to the amount of Psyche drained,
for example if the victim loses half his/her Psyche, Piecemeal
will have access to half his/her memories (what specific
knowledge is gained is up to the Judge). If the victim survives
the attack he/she regains +1 Psyche rank per hour until fully
restored.

47
Shapeshifting: Piecemeal has the limited ability to change his
facial appearance based on memories he's accessed with his
Mind Drain. Since his body doesn't change he primarily uses
this ability to surprise or psychologically unnerve his victims.

Swimming: Created with DNA that included the Atlantean


warlord Attuma, Piecemeal is amphibious and can swim at
Typical (6) speed (45 Mph, 3 Areas/Round).

Water-Freedom: Piecemeal's gills allow him to breathe under


water and survive at any depth. He can resist cold at Excellent
(20) rank and his senses adapt to low light and under-water
acoustics.

Talents: Piecemeal's mind is a clean slate hungry for


experience, but he possesses none of the memories or Talents
of the people he was based on.

Background: The man who would become Piecemeal was a


U.S. government agent sent to infiltrate the Red Skull’s
operation but was captured. The operative was surgically
altered and combined with artificial body parts by the Skull’s
scientists. One of the scientists working for the Skull was
secretly the villain known as Madman who implanted a device
that allowed him to track and control the creature now known
as Piecemeal. Piecemeal escaped from the Red Skull and
wound up in Lock Ness where he terrorized local boaters.
When the Hulk investigated the attacks on behalf of the
Pantheon, he battled Piecemeal and Madman. When Madman
killed the former agent of the Pantheon known as Perseus,
Hulk stabbed Piecemeal with Perseus’ spear and he
disappeared into the lake, presumably dead though no body
was found.

POPULARITY: 25

Powers: Slaymaster was a normal human with no true super-


human powers, but was highly trained in esoteric martial-arts
that provided the following abilities:

Hypnosis: Slaymaster could temporarily hypnotize an


opponent who failed to make both a Remarkable (30) Intensity
Intuition FEAT to avoid eye-contact (+2CS to this roll if they are
aware of this ability) and an Excellent (20) Intensity Psyche
FEAT to resist being hypnotized. Victims are momentarily
immobilized, and lose ½ their Initiative roll and are -2CS to
his/her first action for that round.

Knife Hand: Slaymaster was a practitioner of an ancient Ninja


technique used to harden the striking surfaces of his hand to
allow it to inflict edged damage in unarmed combat. His left
hand has been hardened to the equivalent of Excellent (20)
Material Strength and he could us it to inflict Excellent (20)
Edged damage. His left hand was immobile and could not be
used to hold or manipulate objects.

Weakness Detection: Slaymaster had the Incredible (40) rank


ability to sense weaknesses in physical structures, opponents
and energy fields (including Force Fields). There was a 40%
chance the target has a detectable weakness. Analysis takes
1D4+1 rounds.

 If a weakness is detected he can reduces an


opponent’s armor rank –2CS against his attacks
(armor and Force Fields reduced to Excellent (20) or
less are ignored). If his opponent has no armor then
his damage is increased +1CS (maximum of
Incredible (40).

 Slaymaster’s weakness detection stems from his


martial arts discipline and his five natural senses that
allow him to sense only pressure points, physical
stress-points and fracture planes in solid objects or
force fields. He possesses no superhuman psychic
abilities that would allow him to detect specific
weaknesses such as a molecular allergy, specific
energy frequency or mental/psychological weakness.
51
Weapons/Equipment: As a professional assassin, Slaymaster
carried an arsenal of conventional weapons, including guns
that fired explosive ammunition (+1CS damage).

Body Armor: Slaymaster wore a uniform, often concealed


under a disguise, made of bullet-proof fabric that provided
Good (10) protection from projectiles, energy, fire and electrical
attacks. Firearms that inflict Excellent (20) or less damage are
converted to Blunt Physical rather than Shooting damage.

Enhancement Suit: During his final encounter with Captain


Britain, Slaymaster wore a cybernetically controlled
enhancement suit modeled after the Captain's own. The suit
enhances the wearer’s biological energy fields and raised
Slaymaster’s Strength and Endurance to Remarkable (30) rank
(140 Health). The suit provided a Good (10) rank personal
Force Field. The suit also allowed him to fly at Monstrous (75)
airspeed (50 Areas/round, 750 Mph).

Unique Weapon (Gauntlet): Slaymaster sometimes wore a

Unique Weapon (Jazzlers): Slaymaster carried numerous


specially-designed, high-tech bladed weapons that could be
thrown to inflict Typical (6) damage on a Green result,
Excellent (20) damage on a Yellow or Incredible (40) damage
on a Red. These “Jazzlers” disrupt nerve impulses and can
completely paralyze the victim.

 Circuitry within the Jazzlers allow them to ignore


armor or Force Fields of Excellent (20) rank or less.
They will penetrate Remarkable (30) rank armor and
inflict -1CS damage. Incredible (40) rank or higher
armor will complete block the weapon.

the Jazzlers can ignore up to Incredible (40) rank
armor or Force Fields. They will penetrate Amazing

Background: Slaymaster was a professional assassin of
Middle-Eastern origin working for the British crime-lord Vixen.
Slaymaster was employed to hunt down and kill a number of
psychic agents of the RCX (the Resource Control Executive) ,
a division of British Intelligence. He battled Captain Briton on
several occasions including one encounter where he defeated
and captured the Captain and attempted to steal his ability
enhancing costume which Vixen partially copied. Slaymaster
savagely beat and blinded Captain Britain’s sister before
ultimately provoking the hero to kill him.

Slaymaster had briefly posed as the costumed


criminal known as the Caterpillar (a leader of extreme genius),
to convince the Alice in Wonderland themed Crazy Gang to
work for him.

Slaymaster considered himself to be an honorable


man and treated those he viewed as worthy opponents with
respect. Unworthy opponents could be brutalized and
humiliated. Slaymaster was an arrogant professional, prideful
of his skill and reputation. He was a merciless killer who
enjoyed the challenge of combat.

CHESSMEN
When chess-obsessed industrialist Obadiah Stane sought to
destroy Tony Stark (Iron Man) and steal his company, he
outfitted his assassins with chess-themed costumes and
weapons as the Chessmen. He initially sent his Knight to kill
Stark and he briefly gained the upper hand against Iron Man
before being defeated. Stane next sent his Bishop to kill the
imprisoned Knight for failure and then attack Iron Man. The
Bishop also initially gained an advantage before Iron Man
subdued him. Later after Stark had upgraded to his “Silver
Centurion” Iron Man armor and attacked Stane, the Chessmen,
including a White Knight were deployed to stop him but were
collectively defeated with a single blast from the new armor. It’s
unknown what became of the chessmen after Stane was
defeated and committed suicide but they turned up years later
and attacked a farmer’s market for an unknown reason. They
were confronted by Iron Man and the Bishop once again nearly
defeated him but he was saved by the assistance of the alien
X-Man Broo.

was an electromagnetic wave emitter that disrupted the
victim’s nervous system, causing involuntary reactions. The
victim becomes disoriented, unsure of himself and unwilling to
fight. Victims within 1-area must make a Good (10) intensity
Endurance FEAT or suffer a -3CS to all combat actions,
involuntarily pulling punches and unable to focus or aim. The
victim's damage is also reduced by -3CS including any ranged
weapons with variable settings. Endurance is also reduced
-3CS as the nervous system is disrupted making them easier
to Stun.

64
 The victim must make an Excellent (20) Endurance
FEAT or suffer -2CS to all abilities and damage or a
Remarkable (30) intensity FEAT to avoid a -1CS.

 If the target is wearing a battle suit like Iron Man the


disruption to the nervous system affects the
cybernetic controls and reduces all the suit’s abilities
along with the wearer. Use the Endurance rank of the
hero inside the a battle suit rather than the suit’s rank.

 Note that the types of energy waves are unrevealed


but it effected Tony Stark inside the Golden Avenger
Iron Man suit which had Amazing (50) protection from
energy and Unearthly (100) protection from radiation.

 The mental disruptor is itself cybernetically controlled


and will shut off if knocked off the Bishop’s head.
Victims who move more than 1-area away from the
disruptor regain +1CS to each rank every round. If the
victim is submerged, the water will disperse the
energy waves and negate their effects.

Unearthly (100) intensity or have all systems shut
down for 10 rounds.

 Energy Blast: The staff could fire a destructive blast


of Incredible (40) damage energy up to 1-area away,
or Amazing (50) damage on contact, once every 3
rounds. He can energize the staff to damage anyone
else touching it while remaining immune himself.

 Force Bolts: The lances could fire Force Bolts for


Incredible (40) damage at a range of 2-areas. Victims
are -1CS to avoid being Slammed (but not Stunned).

 Edged Attack: The lance can be used to stab or


skewer a victim and inflict Good (10) Edged damage
on a Green result, Remarkable (30) damage on a
Yellow or Amazing (50) damage on a Red. Against
Amazing (50) rank armor, damage is reduced -2CS
(do not subtract armor rank). Against Incredible (40)
rank armor, damage is reduced -1CS. The lance
ignores armor less than Incredible (40) rank and
inflicts full damage but no damage against armor
greater than Amazing (50).

 The lance is designed to be used while mounted on


their flying steed and the Knights are penalized -2CS

and have exceptional maneuverability with Incredible (40)
Control rank. The steeds provide the following:

 Enhancement: The steeds make the rider more


durable, likely bolstering their armor with a force field.
As long as the Knight is on his steed his Body Armor
and Endurance are +1CS (no Health change).

 Speed Burst: The steed can sprint through the air at


Unearthly (100) airspeed (100 areas/round, 1.500
Mph) for brief periods but sacrifices maneuverability,
losing -3CS from Control.

 Charging: If the Knight makes a Yellow Fighting


FEAT roll he can quickly accelerate at maximum
speed towards his target, charging with his lance and
gain a +2CS to hit and reduce his opponent’s armor -
1CS vs. that attack. This maneuver counts as all his
actions for the round. While flying at high speeds
(Unearthly (100)), if he misses, he tends to overshoot
his target and will continue in a strait line for 10 areas
before he can turn or stop.

 Shield: The Knights carry a large shields that

INTUITION: GOOD (10)
PSYCHE: INCREDIBLE (40)

HEALTH: 46
KARMA: 80
RESOURCES: TYPICAL (6)
POPULARITY: 0

Powers:

Berserker: Dr. Rot has a psychopath's tolerance for pain and


continued to gleefully fight even after Wolverine disemboweled
him, using his own intensities as a weapon. In addition to
giving him his normal, exceptionally high Excellent (20)
Endurance rank, he can enter into a killing frenzy for 10 rounds,
once every hour. If he succeeds at a Psyche FEAT roll, he
gains Incredible (40) Endurance vs. Stun (but not Slam) results
and adds +20 Health. He gains a +1CS to his Fighting and
Strength while berserk.

Hyper-Intelligence: It's not known if Dr. Rot has any actual


scientific or medical training but he has an instinctive genius for
kit-bashing available materials into revolutionary, piecemeal
psychic-machinery, engineering new life forms and even
cloning. He has Amazing (50) Reason and +2CS Resources
for building his brain-based devices. He can build them quickly,
on the run and out of ad-hoc salvaged parts and rusted junk
as long as he has fresh human brains.

Equipment:

Unique Invention (Brain Bomb): Dr. Rot has built 2 smaller,


more limited versions of his God Brain Machine. He can
quickly cobble together a Brain Bomb with a single fresh brain
and common objects including; pens, pencils, plastic straws,
kitchen utensils, batteries and phone wires. He can assemble
one in 1D10 +2 rounds. He can spend Karma to reduce this
build time by 1 round for each 10 Karma spent.

When activated the bomb will drive everyone within 3


areas temporarily insane unless they can make a Psyche
FEAT roll against Monstrous (75) intensity. Commonly, victims
have no recollection of 1D10 +2 rounds after they recover their
sanity, time he uses to escape. The Brain Bomb is only good
for one attack.

Rot can build a larger Brain Bomb, requiring at least 2


human brains and machinery that would takes up most of the
space inside a van. This type of Brain Bomb was used to
subdue victims for his asylum. Victims within 6 areas who fail a
Monstrous (75) Psyche FEAT are knocked unconscious for
1D10+1 hours.

68
 Mental Probe: Everyone with 100-yards of the
Machine must make a Psyche FEAT (including Resist
Domination talents) against Amazing (50) rank every
15 minutes to prevent Doctor Rot from gleaning any
information from his/her mind. If the victim fails to
make at least an Incredible (40) intensity FEAT the
Doctor can get a partial reading; an impression of the
characters personality, bits of memory, what makes
them afraid or angry ,or feel guilt, traumatic events,
but still be unable to identify the individual. Failure of
a Remarkable (30) FEAT or less allows Rot to read
his/ her mind at will.

peaceful person into a killer can take days. If the
character is already a violent person it can turn them

inhibitions and unleash what inclinations the character
already has if they fail to make more than 3 Incredible

Weapons:

Chainsaws: Both of Charlie’s hands have been replaced by


chainsaws that have Excellent (20) material strength and inflict
Amazing (50) Edged damage. The saws will cut through Good

and inflict -2CS against opponents with Remarkable (30) Body
Armor. The saws will inflict no damage against armor at
Incredible (40) rank or higher. Charlie’s chainsaws are
activated by a primitive cybernetic connection.

Talents: Charlie has no known talents.

Mind Probe: Theses creatures have some form of rudimentary


telepathy which allows them to search their victim’s mind for
people to copy at Excellent (20) rank. This power may allow
them to sense people's mental presence and partially hide their
approach. Victims who fail a Psyche FEAT against Excellent

are trying to surprise or blind-side them. This intensity
increases +1CS each time the number of Flesh Puppets
doubles beyond 2, with a maximum of Amazing (50) intensity.

The creature's Mental Probes also cause severe headaches

Optional Rules for Fighting Blind (or Invisible
Opponents): If the blinded hero has no sense of
what direction the target is in and is picking a
direction at random roll a 1D10. A roll of 10
means he shooting/swinging in the right
direction and can attempt a blind shot.

 If the target is larger than normal add +1 to


the 1D10 roll for every 25 points of growth
power (example: the target has Growth at
Monstrous (75) rank, add +3 to the 1D10 roll
so the hero has a chance of hitting the target
on a roll of 7-10).
 When making a blind-shot, relying completely
on luck; roll a percentile (1D100). A roll of 90-
96 is a Green result, 97-99 is a Yellow and a

SEEKERS
The Seekers are a team of ex-AIM agents, three brothers, who
have become freelance bounty-hunters and criminal
mercenaries. The Seekers were employed by the Secret
Empire who upgraded their armor and weapons. The three
men were AIM scientists/engineers who built their own battle-
suits and outside their armor they each have Good (10)

Weapons:

Body Armor: Sonic’s battle suit provides Remarkable (30)


protection from all physical attacks, Excellent (20) protection
from energy damage, radiation and electricity and Good (10)
protection from heat/fire. The armor itself has only Typical (6)
protection from cold based attacks (*see Vulnerabilities). Sonic
has Amazing (50) protection from sonic and vibratory attacks.
His original armor had only Good (10) protection from Energy
attacks.

Force Bolts: Sonic's armored gauntlets are likely equipped


with repulsors that fire Force Bolts, inflicting up to Remarkable
(30) damage with a 2-area range. The Seeker's original armors
carried external, hand-held blasters.
Flight: Sonic’s armor is equipped with jet boots that allow flight
at Incredible (40) airspeed (30 areas/round, 450 Mph).

Sensors: Sonic is equipped with a short range radar that has


Remarkable (30) rank a 100-yard radius, allowing it to detect
invisible opponents. Outside his armor he has Typical (6)

Sonic Cannon: Sonic’s chest plate contains a disc-shaped


sonic blaster that has a range of 6-areas, a 1/round rate of fire
and hits a single target on the Remarkable (30) column as a
disruptor, force bolt or as a sensory based attack that hits all
targets within 1-area automatically.

 Sonic Stun: Sonic can overload a victim’s senses causing


their nervous system to shut down with out doing
permanent damage. This attack inflicts Excellent (20)
damage and ignores body armor and force fields as it
attacks the senses. Victims must make an Incredible (40)
intensity Endurance FEAT to avoid being Stunned (or
+2CS in intensity based on any damage actually taken).
Only force fields that prevent sound from traveling or
Protected Senses will defend against this power. This
attack has a 2-area range and affects all targets in all
directions.

 Kinetic Bolt: Sonic can produce a bolt of force for up to


Incredible (40) damage at a 4-area range.

 The leech is even more effective against opponents
inside powered battle-suits like Iron Man (or the
Seekers own), possibly exploiting the suit’s
cybernetic connections to the victim’s nervous
system to make a direct connection for the energy
transfer. Victims must still make an Excellent (20)

incapacitated with pain and lose 10 Health points
each round. The victim must use his own Endurance
ranks for this FEAT, not the armor’s Endurance rank.

 This attack ignores the wearers armor rank and

from the human pilot. Only suits or powers
specifically listed as resistant to Bio-Manipulation will
protect the hero.

against Excellent (20) intensity each round or be
incapacitated with pain and lose 10 Health points

 A partial Hold result means the leech grabbed part of


the victim but didn’t manage to attach itself to the

hero grabs or touches any part of the leech these

Powers:

Power Neutralizer: Unearthly (100). Goat-Faced Girl has the


power to temporarily shut off the superhuman powers of
anyone who meets her gaze.

 Normally, to avoid making eye contact, the hero must


make a Monstrous (75) intensity Intuition FEAT.

manages to get a surprise attack, the necessary
FEAT is Unearthly (100) intensity.

 If the hero wins Initiative by at least +6, the FEAT is


Amazing (50) intensity.

 If the hero knows about her powers, he gains a +2CS


to this Intuition FEAT for the round if he loses Initiative
and +4CS if he wins.

 Fighting her while avoiding eye contact penalizes the


hero -1CS to all actions and -2 Initiative.

 The nature of Goat Faced Girl’s power is unrevealed.


It may be mystic in origin and other than avoiding eye
contact, it’s possible it can only be resisted by magic.

 The Judge may allow a Psyche FEAT against


Unearthly (100) intensity to resist. Otherwise, it would
require a resistance to Power Manipulation or
Resistance to Bio-Manipulation.

 It’s possible that her power only effects mutants. She

Background: Tsar Sultan was born in Russia, where his father,


a religious missionary, helped to build a community for outcast
mutants, who Tsar resented and held in contempt. He was

home-land Genosha, were slaughtered by sentinels along with
millions of mutants. Sultan wife was later killed in an arson fire
set by a mutant and volunteered to undergo a painful process
