Hey showing interest here
was part of a X-men student group game that we've had to put to bed for a bit so would really like to get involved in another.
Could easily use my student from that game.
you were asking about other powers that might be very Mary Sue if abused - this was the basic gist of what we disallowed, hope it helps.
*Long Term Invisibility
*Anything that would cause instant death, i.e. Death Touches
*Ability to completely paralyze someone for extended periods of time - we did have limitations on it
*Superdupermegastrength - the ability to lift tall buildings with one finger. Mashing cars up and using them as basketballs - you just know there is always one who wants this
and your basic cloning of canon X-men powers
Character:Mutant - Name: MetallicaHuman Name:

long and redEyes:
slender with small breasts, Date Of Birth:
May 12th 1994Place Of Birth:
She has a typical temper associated with her hair colour. Not keen on making new friends she is usually a tad on the rude side when she first meets any one. She’s smart but has to work hard to get good grades as her attention span wavers a lot and she prefers to slack off usually. Is better with more practical exercises, excels in self defense though she looks wimpy. Is also very good in her lab associated classes. Background:
Born on the south side of Chicago to two mutant doctors, Megan was doted on from an early age. Her father Daniel Shields watched eagerly for the day when his only child would reveal her abilities. He had the ability as his name suggested to protect his body, to shield it by any means necessary. He could cause a force field to expound from his very core in times of crisis. When humans were about this shield took on the guise of whatever was nearby. A matching wall, another car, a tree. Her mother, Penn Metling had the ability to turn her fingers into any metal weapons or tools. Very useful in surgery.
Megan was aware from a young age that her parents were different and loved how they never tried to influence her decision on anything. Always trying to get her to see things for herself and to get the full story before forming an opinion on anything or anyone. When she turned ten years of age both parents began to worry about her growth. She was very tall even then but never seemed to put on any weight. They ran procedural checks on her but she was healthy and so they merely watched as she grew up. By her thirteenth birthday she was taller than most girls her own age and much thinner than them as well. On holding a few balloons she felt herself get light headed only to hear some of her friends screaming and pointing at her. She had risen a few inches from the ground.
Her parents managed to convince the adolescents in attendance that there had been too much helium in the balloons and stayed by their daughters side for the rest of the day, effectively holding her down. That night as they sat at the dinner table she reached for her fork, as soon as it touched her hand it melded with it. She began to scream not knowing what was going on. Her parents were out of their chairs like lightening watching bewildered but delighted as their daughters entire body began to encase itself in metal. Bit by bit the iron seemed to click into place until she was covered completely. There was no way she’d be floating off now.
She was enrolled into Xavier’s academy and slowly came to terms with her abilities, though it is taking her longer to bend them to her will. She goes by the nickname of Metallica.
Penn Metling (Slizer)Race:
Daniel Shields (Shield)Race:
Metal shield that encompasses her entire body - takes on the actual type of metal she touchesMinor:
Pulse – can raise or slow her pulse – has been used to get her out of classes a few timesMinor:
translucent - Xavier has informed her that this might eventually lead to perhaps invisibility but for now her pale skin becomes ghostly white usually when negative emotions (not anger) are displayed.Power Limitations:Major:
Has not learned yet how to control this properly. Everything metal she touches has the ability it seems to cause her change. She is trying to learn how to prevent this and to change at her own will. So far unsuccessful and must use plastic knives and forks during meal times. (cost of wooden chairs add up)Minor:
First seen as a side-effect from her transformation from metal, her pulse slowed down considerably. Now she finds she can raise it by will a few notches or lower it herself when the mood takes her. (The school doctor no longer rushes to the class room when she attempts this.)Minor:
Her skin was always pale and almost appears to have a metallic sheen for hours after a transformation but after she broke up with her first boyfriend at the age of fifteen, she became so visibly pale everyone thought they were looking at a ghost. Has never happened for prolonged periods.Hobbies and Interests:
Loves tinkering with car and motorbike engines.
