Last I heard, Primarch said the next approvable hero would get the slot, though I'm not sure if he's gotten anything via PM.  I think Kate was considering going back to hero or might stay villain and Altair mentioned an interest as well.
There are other positions, if you're interested.  Journalists, villains, etc.

From this point on, I will say interested parties to please post the character apps here, as opposed to PMing it to me. I'd just rather people be able to see if a very good character is already in before sitting down to write it up. So I'm stating it now, apps sent to me via PM will just be directed here.

Thanks

The Person

Name: Elizabeth Johnson
Age:  25
Nationality: American
Day job: Massage Therapist
Personality: She is a firecracker with people that knows her, she tends to be very friendly to all those who would be silly enough to be her friend. She loves having fun and sometimes she acts like a little girl but it is always in good fun.  However to those that don't know her she could be rather scary because of the way she dresses. She believes that the truth always comes out and those who tell her the truth, even if it hurts she would befriend forever.
Backstory: She was born in Texas, ever since she was little she was always fascinated with music and dancing, those were the only things she could do very well. On her teens she became fascinated with rock, especially metal and she often sang at a local club. Having a amazing voice helped her a lot and people seemed to like how she sang. It was then when she discovered something, she was special, she could make people see illusions with only looking at them, the illusions became real to a person if they believed it. It all came to a sudden discovery when the hero of the city was almost beaten down, something inside of her stirred as he asked for help and her powers became flowing out as she did. The discovery of this power made her rethink of continuing her pursue on music or even go to collage. She instead became a bit more dark and decided to dress as a goth thinking people would be afraid of her and she would not hurt them.

It was then where she started practicing martial arts in order to be able to defend herself against anybody. She also continued to practice her eyes power and actually managed to take control of it and only activate it when she wanted to activate it. She practiced everything from martial arts to how to battle with weapons, at the end she was satisfied with her training and tried to get back to her life by becoming a massage therapist. She remains on the low trying her best to help those that are in need although becoming a rumor in town, a mere whisper of people that had seen their worst fears come to life most of them ended up in a hospital or in a mental institution for it, all of them criminals.
Appearance:

The Hero

Codename: Lullaby
Powers:
1- Illusion Eyes- She only needs to look at a person to make that person see the illusions she wants them to see. The illusions are not dangerous if the person does not believe in them, however if they do the illusions can actually hurt people.
2- Dream Voice- If she sings she can make people around her fall asleep. She can make a lot of people fall asleep from a small party to a big stadium if her voice is heard by some means.

Weakness:
1- If the person does not believe the illusion they can break the hold from it, she needs to see them eye to eye to make them fall back into her trance however it will be more difficult since they know it is a illusion. ( http://mybarrio.net/media/feedgator/images/monthly/2011/09/19_0_what.jpg)
2- Gag her and her powers are gone, be sure to make her unable to speak and she cannot do anything.
Skills:
Self defense- She knows how to fight and she spent a lot of years perfecting it.
Weapon specialist- She knows how to use firearms and melee weapons, and she is very good at it.
Cooking- She knows how to cook, she is very good at it and people often wants more

Special Equipment:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/696/falconblademc0.jpg A double bladed sword who its rather large, it can be compacted to fit on her belt but once she takes it out she can extend it to its full size.
Costume:
None so far since nobody has been able to see her, she sings as she goes out making everybody go to sleep before they have a chance to see her.

Here's the villain profile - 'tis absolutely tweaka-doodle doo, so let me know if any changes are required!



The Person

Jack Thorn

Name: Jack Thorn

Age: 34

Nationality: American

Day job: None (See Backstory)

Personality: When Jack grew up, he realized one thing very quickly; it was easier to steal than it was to rightfully earn. His traits began with violence and ended on warmongering. A mountain of a man, Jack knew he was the product of his environment, given how the young man killed his parents in a drug fuelled frenzy, and sent to the juveniles offenders institution. What he lost in common sense, he made up with intelligence in years to come. Driven, angry and greedy the man is a political mastermind, who knows how to add one and one together, and come up with eleven instead of two.

Backstory:

Jack Thorn was a result of binge drinking and loose morals on the side of his mum, and an overtly adventurous spirit on the side of his father. Having married one another right after the mother got pregnant, Jack remembered seeing them split and get together again for a lot of times before the young boy lost all interest in them, and focused on doing what he developed a fascination for then; sadism.

He enjoyed catching little animals and putting them through a world of hurt, even in school he was the bully who towered over all others and continued hunting even after scolding by his teachers. It wasn’t until he was fourteen – when Starman first made his appearance – did his life change forever. Held after school for detention, Jack raped the nubile, little thing of a teacher who was supposed to look after him. By the time the authorities arrested the young boy, his parents came to visit him... and whilst the police blamed the judge with the judge blaming the local sheriff – the child was allowed to be with his parents for a few hours until he can be officially arrested. During this time Jack killed both his mother and father, and was restrained by several officers who arrived on the scene of crime. Jack was given four consecutive life sentences, two for each murder.

It wasn’t until twenty years later when similar rage set in and Iron General was defeated. Jack gave in to the rage and killed every inmate and officer he can put his hands on... and escaped the penitentiary, with powers he knew he would glad use to share the late Iron General’s crown.

The Villain

Hammer Thorn

Codename: Hammer Thorn

Powers: Hammer Thorn can grow up to fifteen feet in size when the rage sets in. He would need time to harness this strength after his escape from the prison. The Villain can grab a trawler truck in each hand and toss them for up to a hundred meters (up to sixty tonnes and not simultaneously), he can knock holes into skyscrapers and punch fists through them but cannot actually dislodge an entire building from bottom up, unless ‘tis a house or a very small building.

Hammer Thorn can take constant fire/ordnance (think three squads of twenty five troopers each) for up to seven minutes (added altogether or continuous) before weakening and running away. Later on (six months down the line after Starman has fallen) he will develop a breast plate covering all of his back and front, helmet, crotch guard and a shield that would help him absorb the damage, therefore turning seven minutes into twenty minutes of constant ordnance/impact damage.

Weakness: Hammer Thorn is vulnerable behind the head and between the legs... literally. If the villain is hit constantly on the back of his head, he can be stunned for over five seconds with a constant drain on his powers, therefore reducing his size. Same applies to being kicked in the balls.

Skills:

Violence, warmongering and politics – the man is a brute through and through without relying on any other skills.

Special Equipment:

Breast plate, helmet, shield and a crotch guard he will use LATER and not in the first few engagements. (I have no idea in regards to the alloy that he can use; this is something I will need help for once the character is approved.)

Costume:

(As seen in the picture).

Lullaby looks ideal, with the exception of when/how her powers developed. Like all the others, it would be great if you could edit the history so she, like the others got her powers during the battle depicted in the OP.

Thorn is also almost ideal, but for his strength if you could give me a rough number (again in tons) it would clear up his level of strength, for normal instances and certainly so we know how a wrestling match between himself and one of the other physical strong chaps would go.

Just to give you a helping hand, the characters all got their powers when they saw Starman getting beat up in Paris, and then jumped in to fight the Iron General. Include that and you're good to go. I'll reserve the spot for you, since its basically good to go.

Lullaby is super sexy. <3

I agree. We have a very sexy list of characters. It is a shame Red Fury is gone, she was tres hot, but at least we got someone nice to replace.

Sure, just change "inside of her stirred as he asked for help" to "when the reporter asked for help" when you're posting it. Just a minor detail.

Hammer is also good to go.

Hmm...just submitting! Might edit a little bit but overall hope it is acceptable xD

The Person

Name: James Schoenberger

Age: 27

Nationality: German

Day job: James works as a chemist for a large pharmaceutical company which is perfect for him because the company offers him access to equipment and supplies he normally would not have access to.

Personality: James has grown much since his transformation, becoming more confident as he has become stronger and faster. He still seems aloof or overly worried to his coworkers at times as his mind wanders with his plots to obtain more DNA to feed his addiction and sustain his life.

Backstory: James grew up as a brilliant but troubled child. He was never the most popular, the strongest, the fastest...the best at anything really. Other then school. He always had a brilliant mind, but unfortunately for him, this only made him more of a target for bullying on top of all his other short comings. This only pushed him further and further into his studies, alienating him from the world for much of his life. He would go on to excel in school and the universities, becoming a brilliant chemist and biological engineer...but none of this would remove his self image issues gained from his childhood.

Much of his work was spent towards his secret goal; making himself into something he was not. James spend long hours working on chemicals that would enhance not human kind...but himself. He longed to be accepted and show the world he was more than just a awkward genius. After nearly 10 years of work...he had yet to have success.

And then it happened... Help him. James heard it. Fate was speaking to him, it had to be. James was in Paris consulting with a pharmaceutical company when the most pivotal battle in history was taking place. As he watched the video feed, he saw the hero Starman broken and bloody, struggling against his arch-nemesis, The Iron General. The Iron General landed a blow against Starman, blood spitting from his mouth as he recovered to block the next attack. The blood! Of course! It was what was missing... and now he had the perfect chance to obtain a sample of the hero's DNA and discover it's secrets. If he were able to obtain some of the hero's genetic material, he would be able to analyze it and discover what made him so much more than a mortal man. James had made his way to the scene of the battle, waiting anxiously for his chance to enter the scene and search for what he hoped would be the missing piece of his puzzle. He waited for the battle to end...watching in awe and jealousy at the new heroes as they battled The Iron General, until finally the day was won...and then he made his move. Wearing a chemical suit, he approached the military blockade, showing his ID and credentials, telling them he needed access immediately to make sure there was no chemical or radioactive residue left to cause further harm...and it worked. Quickly and excitedly, he rushed his way towards the epicenter of the battle...to where Starman had been struck down, where he would have died were it not for the new heroes...and he found what he was looking for.

James returned to his lab, anxious to discover the secrets of Starman's blood. Nearly a year passed and he had yet to unlock the knowledge he desired, and then one day...his life changed forever. With one of the last remaining sample of Starman's blood, he unlocked the secrets of the hero's DNA.  Not willing to wait any longer, James plunged syringe with a chemical specially enhanced with Starman's blood into his veins and awaited his transformation. The transformation was not instant...nor was it pleasant. Over the course of a week, his body transformed agonizingly slow, his bones breaking and reforming, his muscles tearing and stretching as the hero's blood worked to enhance his weak frame, making him stronger and faster than any normal man. He was disappointed to find out he did not possess the powers of Starman...but was more than happy with the enhancements he did possess...until he discovered the drawback: The power was addicting...and it was only temporary.

As they days went by, he found that his body was starting to breakdown, to weaken as the chemical started to break down in his body, causing him intense pain. They only thing that caused the pain to go away, was to administer another injection...and he had precious few doses left. He would need to obtain more DNA from the hero's of the world before his supply ran out...thankfully the world seemed to provide him with some new sources of power...

Appearance:


The Villain

Codename: Pestilence

Powers: Pestilence can produce a noxious cloud of poison fog that surrounds him, outright killing lesser people and even blurring the vision and causing nausea to the more formidable opponents. The cocktail of chemicals and hero's DNA has made his body extremely tolerant to most chemicals and toxins, as well as has made him more resistant to pain, able to ignore blows that would leave normal people writhing in agony and incapacitated. His enhanced body is more efficient and can survive through trauma and immense blood loss, allowing him to function still when others would be on the verge of death. His body also heals at an advanced rate and is able to keep itself going long enough to repair major trauma, but such an effort is extremely painful and draining to him. Due to his continued chemical injections, he still remains quite strong and fast. The more of the chemicals he injects, the stronger and faster he becomes...but at a price.

Weakness: After injecting himself with the chemical cocktail mixed with Starman's blood, his body became extremely dependant on it to stay alive. Without injecting himself every few days, his body starts to fall apart. If he exerts himself strongly, the chemicals burn out faster, making his need to 'refresh' his injections come much sooner. And the only source to make more of the needed chemicals is not always the easiest to obtain.

Special Equipment: Pestilence wears a specially designed suit that protects him from the toxic environment that surrounds him, as well as from a good portion of physical harm directed his way. The suit also further enhances his strength at the cost of movement. Often times he will carry with him a flamethrower or chemical sprayer as well as chemical grenades.

The Person

Name: Shae Onarah
Age: 33
Nationality: English
Job: Head of Fertility clinic
Personality: Open minded but aloof, self-centered. Arragant.

Backstory:

Currently she heads a Fertility clinic that specializes in designer babies, such blatant and direct use of human genes to the elevation of options to those with money is unethical to all who have any ethics. Shae's ethics however depends on how much money her bank account can be lined with.

Even placing her desire to milk while feeding the ambitions, elitism and vanity of rich people at the clinic aside, Shae has a dark soul set on becoming as black as pitch. For while fooling with a oougie board at a party once, in the attempt to scare those who were dealing with forces they did not understand,  she ... contacted something else. A true poltergeist, a truly powerful one.  But it wasnt something sort to play her game against her, it was a spirit that relates to her, loves her and choose to link its own poltergeist abilities to hers.   A spirit which is power hungry, proud and wanting to make a statement on this world, one her values have been changing to match. Weeks after doing so she had became more blatant with her own incredibly improved powers. Coupled with a good imagination and a belief she deserves to be more relevant than others, is a fast path to be proven right or wrong either way ... quickly.

Appearance:



The Villian

Code Name: Whisper
Powers: Prodigious Telekinesis Mastery (she can manipulate matter her mind at a distance). She can lift roughly ten tonnes at once with this power, but her true ability is not how much she can lift but the level of precision she can manage effects.
Weakness:

When nearby the site of a murder due to jealousy she can be flooded by emotions present by any lingering spirits still haunted by their untimely departure. It doesn't matter how much time has past, only the strength of betrayal of love that directs this influence. This effectively can make her insane while unwittingly channeling a re-inactment of what so scared any unearthly presence plagued by its love crossed path. (Ie the storyteller god-modes her in such circumstances)

Skills: Can sense spirits, sometimes see them.
Special Equipment: None
Costume : None

To both Kate & Keala, nothing that wouldn't happen in the real world until the final Starman/Iron General fight depicted in the OP. That was when all Player Character power manifestation happened, be it gaining super strength or an intellect that can do things real world genius can't. Also Kate, how much can Whisper lift with her TK? And she'll need a weakness. No armour isn't a weakness when she can make a telekinetic shield. Keala, more details on his physical enhancements please. Having a high pain threshold wouldn't allow someone to shrug off generally lethal blows, that's more durability. A high pain threshold would allow him to just tolerate the pain, but a lethal injury is still lethal.

Also The Prologue is up! So jump on in heroes! Approved villains are also encouraged to set up their own threads of shenanigans, or you can contact me to plot something if a straight up "I'm getting up to mischief and get confronted by a hero/some heroes/the whole team" thread won't really work.

@Keala, the manner in which he obtained Starman's DNA is unlikely. It would have meant he would have had to travel to the location where the fight was taking place (Paris) and make his way beyond the military/security blockade, get the sample and exit without anyone witnessing it. It would be a lot easier to go with something to the effect of "moments after hearing the plea for help it all occurred to him, and he renewed his work with great vigour." Unless I've missed something it doesn't look like the pain threshold/durability point has been addressed.

@Kate, TK levels are fine. Her weakness, while interesting isn't particularly appropriate, something that could be used against her would be more suitable. Such as Thorn Hammer's weak spots, Pestilence's powers burn out during a fight, Honour Guard can be frozen to remove his powers, etc.

@Major Major, Absolutely. I'd advise you scan over some of the responses to apps that have already been approved/been edit to approval so you'll know some of the points to avoid. But you'd be welcome aboard!

Apologies for the big image

The Person

Name: Alex Mossman
Age: 21
Nationality: New Zealander
Day job: Bicycle Courier
Personality: Comes across as being fairly quiet and unassuming, even slightly autistic, most of the time, but is actually a real Adrenaline Junkie and thrill seeker.
Backstory:
Most villains would tell incredably grandiose lies about their backgrounds and such, about how they were abused by their parents or some other nonsense. Alex Mossman wouldn't insult you in that way. Born to an unassuming middle class family (mother a nurse, father a factory worker), he drifted through life mostly, being an average student at school. After graduating, he bought a bicycle and became a courier, which also helped him to lose a fair bit of weight.

When he gained his powers (how he did so is still unclear to him, as he was more than a bit drunk at the time), he decided to have some fun with them.

Appearance:

The Villain

Codename: Head Case
Powers:
- Telepath: he is able to read any one person's mind within a radius of 60 feet of himself. Is also able to read multiple minds, but the range halves for each extra mind he reads
- Psychic Shield: he is  abl to maintain a reasonably strong psychic shield for himself and ONE other person.

Weakness:
-Personal Moral Code: Alex is only interested in the Adrenaline Rush of performing criminal activities, so he does all he can to avoid hurting anyone in his crimes. If under any circumstances someone was in fact hurt or even killed in one of his heists, he'd go into a state of near-catatonic shock.
-Is also very poor at actually fighting. His psionic powers also are average, at best.
-Primary Weakness: Sonic Attacks; they are are cripplingly painful to him.

Skills: Excellent bicyclist and very fit
Special Equipment: one bicycle with a pillion seat.
Costume: Baseball cap, sunglasses, silk scarf (To hide his identity); leather jacket, jeans and sneakers. In effect, the sort of outfit that can be assembled cheaply.
