Coyote
Real Name: Jeremy Cloud
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Gender: Male
Age: 19
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 136 pounds
Appearance: With Brown hair and brown eyes, his native American heritage is still visible despite his health problems. Slightly pale and much too thin, he looks like he just woke up from a coma that's been for years- which isn't completely wrong.
Suit/Equipment: In an interesting play on super-heroics, Coyote has no real costume as he rarely battles physical crime directly. In truth, he can barely walk, let alone throw a kick. Acting almost entirely in cyberspace he mostly concentrates on cybercrime and feeding information to more physical superheroes. His highly stylized Coyote head avatar is usually seen connected to his hobby of internet art but has also saved the bacon of many a hero.
Powers: While in the physical world he has very little power, but thanks to a highly experimental implant he is essentially a telepath with computers and machines instead of people. This is supplemented with his trained skill as a hacker. He's also can enhance his intelligence to super-genius levels by interfacing with supercomputers.
Background: Born on a particularly poor reservation, Jeremy Cloud did have a brief fascination with electronic devices before his accident. A car wreck when he was six put him in what appeared to be a coma, but a couple years into it the doctors figured out that he was in fact conscious for a couple of hours a day.
Not really in a coma, but with damage in the part of his brain that controls conscious movement, the pattern did become steady enough for tutoring. Finally, a couple months ago, there was a breakthrough in human/machine interaction and Jeremy was in line for an experimental implant. The idea was to use computers to replace damage sections of the brain- and in Jeremy's case it was a success. Not only could he move again, but he could "move" in cyberspace as well.
Which is really a shame, because he discovered the mind control protocals in the base computers. Using his implant to program in protection- Coyote was born training to hack among the best computer scientists in the country. Finally rescued physically by superheroes, Coyote helps out as an information broker per excellence.

I'm leaning towards a speedster who's not really moving super fast, she's just slowed down the temporal flow.

I'll download the M&M book and make up a character soon.

"Do you realize just how FOUL the drain in your average toilet, shower drain or sink is? And you wonder why I'm cranky when I do that?"

Character Name: Anna Bancroft aka 'Wartoy'
Citizenship:American
Played by: Callie Del Noire
Age: varies (Physical), 18 (actual)
Height:varies, typically between 5' and 6' 6"
Weight: varies, typically between 200 and 310 lbs

Description: By the very nature of her nanotech nature she has no set appearance. Since her transformation, she has taken to creating a variety of 'looks' when she isn't in one of her 'combat forms'. Recently she has gone back to various 'character' models based on MMO characters she had made, touched up for 'real life.' When she has need to, she can do an astonishingly detailed duplication of anyone she has had a chance to meet. The more detailed an examination she under takes, the better her duplication of someone she can pull off. Typically she can maintain her 'normal form' or 'brick form' while posing as someone else.

Character Summary:  The only daughter of MIT Nano-tech genius William Bancroft, she was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called The Collective. They demanded that he retroengineer an alien nanocolony sample they had obtained. He set to work immediately and was making headway when one of his 'handlers' decided to test one of the samples on Anna to test the viability of the experiment.

She literally melted into pile of silver goo, as did the other nine experimental cases. Unlike all others, she managed to pull herself back together and incorporate the alien nano-hivemind into a viable neuranet that allowed her to maintain control of her physical structure. Her father killed himself when he found out that she had been killed in the test, eliminating most of The Collective's datanet and all remaining nano-cultures. Along with all other carbon based life within a 2 mile radius.

Personality:  She is normally dour and sarcastic, with a temper that borders of sheer fury when cornered by Collective units. She is starting to reconnect with her emotions and rebuild herself as she adapts to her condition. She tends to look for 'models' on how to behave when she is 'in role' and hiding from the Collective forces.

Abilities
Nanite based bodyform
 -Typically she can maintain any form her mind can picture, and her perceptive ability to model three dimensional object is greatly enhanced. Also she can reconfigure and rebuild her body systems as needed. This gives her some ability to regenerate no matter what form she is in.
-'Normal Form': This is her 'default form' and is the quickest to heal and shift to pose as others.
-Hound Form: An optimized quadruped form with enhanced senses, ground speed and leaping.

-'Brick Form Optimized combat form. Most healing ability is reconfigured to maximize physical resilience and sheer physical strength. Combat strength edges upwards 28 tons, with a max move load of 60 tons.
-Ooze: For sheer flexibility, this form is easily the most alien and extendable. She can travel in a near liquid form, and pass through spaces as small as a sink drain (and possibly smaller) and extend her body up to 20 feet with the abilty to use up to five discrete limbs.

Hm.  Well, if this is going to be M&M, then I am indeed interested.  I need to thinks me up some sort of powers.  *Looks to the book.*  Vibration control's a power?  Seriously?  Well.  I know what I'm taking ranks in. :P I may be making a telekinetic sort.  Or maybe a quake sort, a la Avalanche.  Or maybe something else entirely.

Woo! Had an awesome villain idea.

Bedlam
Real Name: Maxwell Holmes
Alignment: Villain, most of the time it's just because he isn't good and he's proactive. Most of the time he isn't malicious. He just. . .is. This has been known to change though.
Gender: Male
Age: 19
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 180 lbs
Appearance: Blue eyes, brown hair, tanned Caucasian, no notable facial features though he does seem to be always smiling like he's in on an inside joke, medium build.
Suit/Equipment: None, normally Bedlam wears normal street clothes and needs no equipment.
Powers: Bedlam is an incredibly powerful telepath and mind controller, who unfortunately is also completely insane. As such his powers tend to manifest as the ability to broadcast insanity over large groups of people. No real goal, no real purpose, Bedlam just wants to play- and he'll reduce a crowd of people to gibbering madmen if he has to do it.

Background:
Max first shows up in psychological circles at age 5, when voices in his head were telling him that his parents didn't love him or each other. The fact that they were right was besides the point. Unfortunately, his sanity only get worse and worse the more help he got. By 11 he was considered a danger to society that had to be locked in an Asylum. By 14, he was considered a serial killer that they got lucky and found before his first kill.

At 18, he had a power surge- and he escaped the Asylum by mentally dominating anyone that got in his way. After words they finally figured it out. He wasn't hearing voices when he was 5, he was hearing thoughts. In the beginning he wasn't crazy, he was telepathic. And now the most powerful telepath on record has spent all of his formative years surrounded by the criminally insane. It's a wonder he doesn't tell people to kill themselves by the dozens. It's a miracle that all he wants to do is play. . .

"Need" and "want" are two different things.  I want to figure this out fairly quickly, if only because I've been wanting to learn Mutants and Masterminds for quite some time.  The fact that, since I'm not very familiar with the system, I'm liable to take considerably longer than anyone else in making the sheet anyways.

In other news, I'm totally going with an extraplanar eldritch-abomination-summoner.  *Loves minions.*

Just to ask, is there anyone overall GMing the end results here? I'm partial to M&M and would be interested to play, but the thread has been light on details of what sort of origins are viable, what sort of world is being messed around with, and who would be taking charge of moving the plot and npcs along.

And y'know, pl 10 150? 12 180? Other?

I think supervillain Maxwell Holmes should be given a weapon: a giant silver hammer! +1 Awesomeness to the first person to point out the joke.

Anyways...

Real Name: Perry La Smarms
Alignment: Neutral Good (with chaotic tendencies)
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 170 lbs.
Appearance: Caucasian male with an average build, though any veins visible under his skin are green. His gelled-back hair is also naturally green, but he dyes it black so as to not draw attention to himself.
Suit/Equipment: Perry has yet to design a superhero suit, or even come up with a supername for himself, though at this time he doesn't have a reason to care.
Powers: Perry has had control over the mysterious state of matter known as plasma from an early age. He can summon plasmic matter at a fixed rate and bend its shape to his will. The plasma can burn through more or less anything except Perry himself, and can be used as a shield to absorb enemy projectiles. Smarms can also cause the plasma he generates to explode, and as he is immune to this substance, he can use this to "bomb-jump" without hurting himself.
Background: Perry has been living in the American suburbs all his life and has maintained a low profile, seeing his plasma-controlling powers as a curse rather than a blessing. When he came of the age, he went away to a college in the big city to major in chemistry, to learn about this strange ability of his. He got a job at a comic book store to pay for his own tuition, and has been reading superhero comics since then.

Well, personally, since Leonis doesn't seem to know anything at all about Mutants and Masterminds, I'm banking on him buckling and one of the players stepping up to GM to keep the game from going under, but that's something of a long shot, and I'm making my character as much to learn my way around the system as anything.

Imagine if there were people with superpowers in the real world? That's basically the setting I'm looking for. They may be feared and misunderstood by the public at large. The government may want to take them in and make them secret weapons of their military. Scientists may want to study these superbeings. Some people might see them as gods. Perhaps the gods of legend were actually superheroes and supervillains of the past!
