After a long absence I am back and hoping to find some people to play with. So I am posting a variety of ideas that I have fielded before, hoping some might appeal. The first is Overlord:
They had found the stone on display at Galaxy City's Treverian Museum of Natural History, the curator thought it was just another piece of quartz, not realizing the treasure he had on hand. Overlord raided the museum after hours, it was no effort at all to knock out the guards and take what was rightfully his.
A quiet throat cleared behind him. Overlord turned, his thick black cape swishing with the movement to face the man who dared interrupt his reverie.
"Yes?" he inquired, his hollow voice sending a shiver through his minion.
"The alarm was tripped, sir," the minion explained.
"I see," Overlord replied, "Well, no matter. Galaxy City's Guardmen are out of town, leaving only a few teen heroes, a couple independents."
He smiled, his glowing eyes regarding the jewel.
"Nothing we cannot handle..."
The premise is a super villain no one took seriously now has access to an artifact that gives him god-like power. Heaven help the heroines who attempt to stop him...
