It would still be a no sadly. I would be more comfortable with it if you were to dramatically de-buff his shape shifting abilities. Perhaps to say that right now he can only turn in to monsters, or change physical appearance. As I see it, here is the list of his powers:

Super Strengh
Super Speed
Super Reflexes
Invulnerability
Flight
Telekinesis
Mind Reading
Mimic People
Increase Size
Elongation
Alter Form (to turn in to monsters, or give himself additional limbs)
Alter Chemical Composition

Comparing him to other PC characters I would say you would be able to have 4-5 of these at max at character creation. To be clear, that doesn't mean you can't get them later! It just means you will have to train up and earn them through Main Story thread victories.

Telekinesis:
 - Super Strength (faked using telekinesis... unless telekinesis alone only lets him move small objects, in which case, I guess he can't fake it after all)
 - Invulnerability
 - Flight (how fast would he be allowed to fly?  15 mph?)
Mimic People
Alter Form (to turn into animals or monsters no larger than a grizzly bear and no smaller than a squirrel)

Should I take away his Kryptonian weaknesses or do they have to stay to keep the above power set?

Actually, scratch that.  Is there any way I can have a power-set that lets me:
a) mimic people and animals
b) catch up to an airplane
c) save said airplane from crashing
d) survive a punch from a villain with super strength

Okay, got my character out, hope its good :-)

The Hawk
The Hawk.
Caroline M'ka Becker.



Origin Story: Caroline Becker was originally approached by none other than HawkGirl after doing some initial solo heroing out over in Kentucky, beating up minor thieves and criminals and dropping them off over at the police station, sometimes literally. She was the product of a Thanagarian father and a Human mother. Her father was a deserter from his homeland, tired of the fighting and wanting to find a place to settle down and live in peace. It just so happened to be Earth that he chose. Eventually marrying a Veterinarian from a small town they had two Children together. Caroline and her little sister Gretchen. With Hawkgirl and Hawkman as the only other Thanagarians like herself to see as role models it was only natural that she would want to be a hero like them.

There were lots of arguments back home, till her father eventually relented (while her mother was ecstatic that her daughter wanted to do something productive with her life). And eventually she ended up becoming a professional hero...well Amateur Hero.

Home City: None, was a freelance hero until being picked up by Hawkgirl.

Civilian Appearance/Style Description: When not out doing her superheroine thing, Carol will remove her wig and go about in any clothes that fit her mood of the day. Though she always wears jackets and coats, just in case she has need to pull her wings out and then hide them quickly. She usually prefers 5.11 Jackets because of how big they are and all the extra pockets to hide her stuff in. She actually dressed better and more appropriately while in civilian mode than in her superheroine persona.

Costume Description: Carol carries with her a leather Bomber's jacket with holes cut in it for her wings, a pair of gloves with Nth metal plates at the knuckles. She also wears a pair of goggles over her eyes along with a white haired wig she uses to help hide her identity.
     
Personality: Carol tries as hard as she can to be all cool and badass and look tough around others, but deep down she is a big softie. (much as she denies it) Despite her 'too good for you' act at times she really wants to have friends, and wont admit it, but she is a mega nerd. (She knows every Star Wars movie by heart.) Carol loves her mother, father, and little sister. When in the presence of her mother she is completely submissive to the point of even going to her room if told to. She also has a bad habit of letting out the occasional smart ass comment even when she doesn't mean to, sometimes talking without even thinking.

Powers/Weapons:Nth Metal Gauntlets.: well they are more like gloves with metal knuckles at the end. Created out of one of her Father’s spare weapons (Since no Thanagarian should be without their Nth weapon) She carried them into battle and uses them like Brass knuckles, they carry with them the attributes of Nth Metal

-Flight: As a Thanaga

-Extra breath: As part of her ability to fly, Caroline can hold more air in her lungs than a normal human. While not Olympic level she can hodl her breath for about 4 full minutes. 5 mins, 30secs. If she really tries hard.)

Weakness:[/b]-Higher Altitudes: Carol cannot fly as high as some planes, the cold will cause her joints to ache and go numb, making flapping her wings difficult. The Lack of Oxygen will also affect her flying abilities.

-Her Inner Ear: If she is hit with a sound weapon or struck on the ears/discombobulated she will be unable to fly. For if she does she will suffer a severe case of vertigo and either crash or vomit all over herself.

-Weak on the inside: Should a civilian ever be in danger or held as a hostage they will be the sole focus of Carol's attention and she will be the first to raise her hands in submission to avoid the civilian being harmed by the villain. But they better hope she doesn't get her hands on them after the civie is safe, for she has a tendency to go full 'Mama Bear'.

-Terrified of scary Eldritch monsters.: Despite her Nth Metal probably being able to knock Cthulhu's teeth out, Caroline has a big fear of things not from this dimension and if encountering them alone might end up running. Aliens are one thing, Eldritch abominations are another.



Also found this cool Image of Captain Marvel if anyone wants it.  XD

Go ahead and keep the Weakness to Kryptonite, Deathnote. He is still a Kryptonian after all, and it helps to balance the power-set. I am fine with the 4 powers you listed, which are essentially Super Strength, Super Flight, Mimic and Shapeshift.


@Everyone, discussing the sheet here with Deathnote has actually brought something to my attention that I want to clear up with everyone. Several people have marked being "a normal human" on their character sheet as a Weakness. I am fine with you leaving this on your sheet but understand that I do not consider this an actual Weakness. Nor did I mentally mark it as such when reading through your sheet. Most superhero's are "physically" just regular humans. Though they may have big, grand superpowers or extreme skill, most would die by taking a direct bullet shot to the face. Or (realistically) if they were punched by someone with Super Strength it would shatter their body.

This does not happen though to villain's or heroes by venture of the fact that they are Heroes and Villains. It is a comic book or cartoon after all. If a regular henchman took a punch to the chest from Superman, or a super sonic tackle from The Flash, they just get knocked out. This is what will *usually* be the case in most battles with everyone. This is so that we can let people use things like guns and swords and their full power-set without fear that they are going to be killing people left and right. Unless a villain is intentionally trying to murder you, instead of just defeat you, everything will be pretty much non-lethal. I do not want the fear of killing people to distract everyone from combat encounters.

All of that being said, I'll just restate my original point. Being human is not going to be a Weakness. Someone with Invulnerability can just ignore bullets and most melee attacks to a point (depending on the degree of Invulnerability), but that is not the norm. Something that negates your powers is a Weakness, or something that is "Super Effective" Pokemon style on you is a Weakness. For instance RedPhoenix's character sheet states that she is weak against Cold attacks, which means she would be at a large disadvantage anytime she fights a person of equal power to her with Cold type powers. Similarly, Rel and Foxy do not have "regular humans" as a Weakness, but I assume that they are and are therefore vulnerable to opponents trying to kill them through normal lethal means.

I hope that clears things up for everyone!

Approved Praxis! Awesome character, you might have said this but I assume he has to have line of sight on where he is going? Or maybe doesn't HAVE to, but certainly prefers it.

Thanks man.  Maybe if he survives and "powers up"  he won't need line of sight.  Something to work towards.  :)

@Lust, your sheet looks great! I would actually recommend maybe giving her another power or two. Perhaps a Thanagarian weapon inherited from her father, or even being extremely resilient.

You don't have to of course if you'd prefer to keep her as is! Approved!

Well I gave her the gauntlets which are like thanagarian brass knuckles but okay I will do some thinking.

Updated the sheet.

Updated the sheet.

Hey Deathnote,

I took a look at your update and it's not totally correct. I went ahead and wrote out the powers so we are on the same page:

Super Strength: Similar to Superman Jonathan has incredible physical strength

Flight: Jonathan is able to fly at extreme speeds, equivalent to that of a commercial airliner (several 100mph)

Shapeshifting: Jonathan is able to take on the form of various animals of his choosing

Mimic: Jonathan is able to take on the physical form of any person he sees or can think of off the top of his head


My edits removed Telekinesis as a power. If you would like you can add it back in as a replacement for Super Strength. He would not (at starting level) have the ability to enhance his punches with his telekinetic abilities, because that's effectively the same thing as having both powers. I also removed being able to turn in to monsters, limiting the power to anything in the existing animal kingdom. Obviously all of your powers would transfer in to that animal as well. I also removed Invulnerability as well.

Wait, what about invulnerability?  Is that just considered a part of his super strength?

Your note of 4 was "the ability to survive a punch from someone with super strength". You are able to do that without having Invulnerability.

Your character is quite powerful with those that I noted!

Offline Deathnote

Well, might as remove that "vulnerability to magic" weakness, then, since there's no invulnerability to bypass at all.

Also, does this mean he can be killed by a bullet?  I only ask because it will affect how I play this character.

That is correct Death, he could be shot and killed.

How big is this game going to be? For some reason I thought it was a small group thing but on reading back I guess I made that up! Will we be split into teams or something? It seems like we already have more than would go off on most YJ/JL type missions.

Also...OOC thread? :D

I like to keep recruitment open until we hit a certain number of approved character sheets!

We have about 6-7 so far, and I think 10 would be a good number. It's natural for 1-2 people to decide to bow out of the game fairly early on if they think it's not for them.

That is correct Death, he could be shot and killed.

Well... guess that means he can't be a front-line fighter.  If I swapped out super strength for telekinesis, what would he be able to do with it?  How much would he be able to lift?

You say that Death but being killed by a bullet is something most everyone can be. He might have the strength to pick up a section of the ground to act as a shield or some such. He could fly at high speed to avoid it. Come from odd angles or use he shapeshifting to change his form and dodge that way.

Invulnerability is overrated...okay, maybe not but his skillset still allows him to soak "damage" by being avoidance based rather than taking it to the chin.

Just my two cents for whatever it's worth!

Offline RedPhoenix

Pretty sure all of us can be killed by bullets. This isn't a 'god tier' game.
