Me, bitch. Character Name:
Charles VargasHero Name:
Older more mature women, bad girlsOffs:
Cruelty, betrayal, deceitPlace of Birth:
Barcelona, SpainKnown Relatives:
In this reality? None. In native reality his mother was the X-Man Rogue. His father was the former villain Vargas. His his adoptive Parents were Gambit and Belladonna. Current Occupation:
Charles is currently lost and unsure what to do with himself. Current Place of Residence:
Hotels all around the world as he travels in search of a new purpose. Affiliations:
Seems to have a particular fondness for cooking. Origin of Powers:
Mutant.Charles is the son of an alternate reality Rogue and Vargas.Strength Level:
Class 85(Online sources are notoriously unreliable, but most place Miss Marvel/Rogue in the 75-80 Range, so I went slightly above that)Powers:
All the powers of Miss Marvel, as they were when Rogue copied them. Strength and speed are mildly enhanced thanks to Vargas's contributions to his genetic composition. But those are just the Kree powers he inherited. His actual X-Gene mutant power is that his mind absorbs knowledge the way Rogue's body absorbs powers. This makes his intellect highly advanced, and allows him to master complex skills and knowledges that would take most a lifetime in a matter of weeks. Even if deprived of his powers he retains those skills and knowledge. His power only lets him master the skills quickly. Once he's done so, they're as natural to him as any learned skill. Charles remembers every single moment of his life with complete and perfect clarity, going right back to his first glimmer of consciousness in the womb. Fighting Skill:
Even without his powers, his skill alone would make him easily a match for the likes of Daredevil, Captain America, and possibly even Iron Fist. He has mastered every form of hand to hand combat on earth except for K'un L'un, and has mastered several alien fighting styles popular amongst the Kree, and Shi'ar. Though his powers do not match up to the likes of Silver Surfer, Thor, Hyperion, or others on a pure scale Champion's fighting skills and tactical prowess allow him to match and even defeat such opponants at times. Much the way Daredevil or Captain America don't have a fraction of Spiderman's strength or speed but often seem able to keep up with him by virtue of their skill and tactics. One of his best skills is that he's developed a knack for being able to rapidly identify flaws and weaknesses in his opponants that he can exploit in battle. Combined with precision pressure point strikes, he performs at a significantly higher level in combat that one would expect from a purely numerical analysis of his powers. Limitations:
Like most mutants, Mutant Inhibitor Collars can shut down his powers. Likewise he's vulnerable to anything Miss Marvel would be vulnerable to. Unusual Features:
A small curl of white hair. Background:
In Charles's native reality(Earth 10579), the villain known as Vargas took an entirely different route to averting the fate of death at the hands of Rogue the Destiny Diaries foretold for him. In this reality Vargas decided that if he wanted to avoid being killed by Rogue, it would probably be unwise to piss her off by murdering and crippling her friends as he did in the 616 reality.
This Vargas instead set out to seduce Rogue. And over time, it worked. More surprisingly, over time he actually fell in love with her for real, and reformed his villainous ways. When Rogue chose Vargas over Gambit, Remy left the team and returned to New Orleans to lead the Theives Guild. Eventually he reconciled with Bellabonna and married her, at long last uniting the Assassins and Theives Guilds.
Meanwhile Vargas became an X-Man. He even helped Rogue overcome her emotional issues and thus learn to control her powers. They had a child together. Shortly before he was born, Professor Xavier was murdered by a skrull assassin masquerading as a Friend of Humanity extremist. Rogue and Vargas named their child Charles to honor Xavier's memory. After interrogating the Skrull they learned he was just a contract hitman for another alien entirely. The X-Men went into space to discover who the mastermind was and bring him to justice. They never returned.
Gambit and Belladonna adopted baby Charles, and raised him as their own. He became fast friends with Franklin Richards. Belladonna and Susan Richards would often arrange playdates for the two boys at Four Freedoms Plaza. Durign one such encounter the boys were kidnapped by Doctor Doom and held hostage for a few weeks before the Fantastic Four and the United Guilds overcame his defenses to liberate the boys.
They were quite shocked to blast their way into Doom's study and find him and young Charles locked in a game of chess so intense that Doom had ignored all the alarms and warnings of the impending assault. Doom had been so taken with the young child's advanced intellect that a bizarre friendship...or perhaps more accurately, mentorship had formed between them. He even relenquished the children without further conflict on the terms he would be allowed to visit with Charles from time to time. Considering he was backed by a number of super powered minions and numerous Doombots, the children's parents grudgingly agreed to the terms. It was less risky than a full blown fight with the children right there.
Charles continued to live his life, being groomed to eventually take over leadership of the United Guilds from Gambit and Belladonna, who never managed to conceive children of their own. They taught him everything about their respective arts, and brought in the finest tutors for whatever they could not teach him themselves. They even sent him to the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters under the leadership of it's new headmistress Emma Frost and Banshee. During his time there, Charles was seduced by a young mutant girl named Foxx...who was later revealed to be his adoptive grandmother, Mystique. She was attempting to get her hooks into the next leader of the United Guilds. Needless to say Charles was less than amused when he learned the truth, but the bizarre dynamics of the relationship did have an impact on his sexual interests, giving him something of a fondness for older, more mature women. Not that he had a problem with younger women. He eventually hooked up with the Stepford Cuckoos. All of them. But they were just the rebound girls, and he was still very disturbed over how things had unfolded with Mystique. He eventually decided to return to New Orleans and try to get out of the Superhero scene for a while.
Alas, the Champion of the Universe had other ideas. He was doing...well...what he does every so often. Flying around the universe and collecting the best warriors he could find to force them into a cosmic tournament so that he could face the very best of them at the end. Many earth metahumans and mutants were chosen, and when the dust settled it was Charles who stood before him. Twenty four vicious hours of combat later, it was Charles who claimed the new title of Champion. A title he would begin using as his codename from that day forward.
He was teleported back to his home just in time to see King Hyperion and the rest of his Weapon X team leave the smoking ruins of the Guild headquarters. They had destroyed everything in his abscence. Killed Gambit and Belladonna. Killed the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men who came to the Guild's aid. They had killed everyone and everything Charles loved. Part of the mission given to them by the Timebroker.
Then they just vanished from this dimension entirely. Mission accomplished.
Charles...no...Champion promptly headed straight for Latveria and convinced 'Uncle' Victor to help him track the interdimensional signal the killers had used and create a device that could send him after them. By the time it was done though, it was too late. The Exiles and triumphed. All but the one he wanted most. King Hyperion. That trail led further still, to Earth 616.
But the trail has gone cold, and Champion fears he has missed his chance at revenge. That somebody else beat him to King Hyperion. Now for the first time he has stopped to consider everything he has lost, and can not bear to go back to his home dimension. There's so little left for him there, and the few people that remain would just be painful reminders of the many who do not remain.
Earth 616 seems as good a place as any to try and make a new life for himself. So he stays. But he hasn't made up his mind just what he should be doing. Oh sure, if he happens to be there when some demented supervillain is on a rampage he'll step in and stop it. But that's hardly enough to give him a sense of purpose he is currently very much in need of. The only purpose he had left was killing King Hyperion with his own hands, and that chance has been denied to him...
