I only had her in her later twenties, well under Banshee's age. 

Batman, minor telepathy gives him the ability to "see what others see" and with some training he could just develop the special awareness to put the pieces together.  I worry that he would be a bit boring to narrate in combat situations.  Also, at 6'0" and only 152 pounds, he is going to be lacking a lot of muscle.

I do have a fondness for telepaths, though, and his level of mastery is a nice combination of underpowered and useful.

I actually liked that it wasn't traditional telepathy.

Consider that a +1. I'm loving the skill set. It doesn't need to be powerful to be incredibly useful. I foresee team leaders fighting over who gets him in their group ;-)

Hey Ember, how old is Leola?  I haven't truly added the years, but my guesstimation puts her around Banshee's age?
She's between 27 and 28. Got her doctorate at 26, worked in Texas for a year, then however long she's been here. Not too long. I see her as one of the newer staff members.

The field avisor:  War-Room
Real Name: Raymond Wulf
Group Affiliation: X-men (student)
Height: 6'
Weight:152 lbs
Arch-Enemies: Magneto, Inner Circle
Nickname: Ray

Powers: psychic mapping By locking onto brainwaves of others in an effective area (2 miles max) Ray can probe their brain and see what they see to better direct and coordinate other members of the X-men during missions. His power can also bring up a map of the area he is linking to and monitor friendly and hostile targets as well as civilians.

Skills: - Master strategist, adviser, capable had to hand combatant, trained in stealth and disguise.

Bio:The New York native, Raymond never fit in at home or school, and always felt like he didn't belong. The constant bullying at school and an abusive father quickly taught Ray to learn to hide from any problems in his life. After years of being bullied Raymond stood by while his father struck his mother to the ground and then started to choke her. Raymond picked up a hammer and smashed the back of his fathers knee in causing him to fall. The ten year old fled with his mother and hid in a dark alley.

While hiding Ray began to wonder about how long he could stay hidden from his father and at that moment Ray could see what his father was seeing and knew how close he really was. Luckily for Ray, two X-men, Jean and the first Kurt Wagner were in the area when his powers manifested themselves and his psychic powers alerted Jean to his location. The two X-men moved in and saved Ray and his mother before his father could cause them any more harm. After realizing her Son was a mutant she allowed Jean to take him to the X-mansion to learn to hone is powers. Now at 17 years of age and ready to graduate high school Ray is serving as a sort of mission control and field commander for smaller teams of X-men.

Personality: Shy, Soft spoken, Willing to help someone in need, fast to act in a dangerous situation.

What do you guys think?

He doesn't have to stop saying it.  He just needs to start meaning it.

Hello, Tama Rose!

I am the GM of the game, and I also play Wolverine.  I am very happy that you found this game, and am very excited to see you will be making a character for it.  I admit, the game has gotten a little complicated -- but feel free to PM me if you have any questions! :)

Looks interesting. If there is still room, I'd love to join.

Can't deside though if I want to make a canon or homebrew character.

Sorry.  I can state categorically that I have never been deluged by so many PMs.  I am really dropping the ball with communicating with my players because of it.  I am really sorry.  :(

PP, don't worry.  We all understand.  This has got to be a massive undertaking for you.  I mean, just looking at all you're doing, even I feel overwhelmed.  But you're doing good!  You're organizing as best as you can, and we all appreciate that.  Take your time, don't hurry.  We're all here and waiting.  Yes, we're eager, but that's why you gave us the IC Commons, isn't it?  So we can socialize our characters if we so choose?  I admit, I haven't posted Karen there yet, but that's because not only am I busy with my O/O's, but also because I can't seem to find the stinkin' header everyone else is using ><.
Speaking of...where is it, you gais?

Everyone seems to just be using their own character sheets, stopping before the powers section.  That's what I am doing, at least.
