Well then after some thinking I'm going to play the granddaughter of the Tarantula. Will be an inventor and have money enough to finance her array of spider mimicing technology some her grandfathers but modernized and several new powers. Spiders have lots of abilities they covered them on a PBS special where they talked to Stan Lee so can have fun and most are fairly standard technology for comics.

But I think the Tarantula came out before Spiderman, but the DC hero didn't have any powers himself.

But I plan to make her a wold class athlete and acrobat like her grandfather, add martial arts training,  and a solid array of devices that aid her work in an integrated theme.

And I know there is a new Tarantula but she is inactive and frankly not family so will call her Mary Law in her secret ID.

Does that sound alright?

As for me, I'm leaning towards either Captain Boomerang II or Sand, with a slight favoring of Sand. We have a mystic in Mary Marvel, so not as much need for Jason Blood or Ragman. And we have at least two women, so no need to use a female character. If Ollie doesn't get used for some reason, I'll use CB 2, if not, almost certainly Sand.

As far as I know, as powerful as Mary is, she's rather ignorant in mystical matters: Hence why Batman's reserve JLA first-pick roster included Blood for magical support and Marvel more as a Superman figure.

That would be my reading as well.

Oops she is in need of a vehicle I'll keep this simple the TARANTULA CYCLE a high performance racing motorcycle, armored and a fair array of standard gadgets- oil slick, large caltrops to bust up tires, engine noise supressor when traveling at normal speeds, nightsight scope screen with a front view, radar (passive), nitro turbo boost for little maneuvering boosts of speed and reinforced suspension. No weapons she is the weapon but just a proper way to get around when she can't wallcrawl and websling around.

I'll do a proper character sheet and list of things her Micro-spiders can do I would likely add Sabotage and Acid-spitting models that can coat acid on a door bolt to cut it open and that's about it but any ability would have to be focused and something a small spider can do.

I'm in. Probably with Jason Blood, unless I can find another magic using male that's not too weak (Dr. Occult) or too powerful (Dr. Fate).

Comments:


Etrigan- Blood is, in his own right, a potent sorcerer, as seen in the Obsidian Age, who can summon forth the Demon within, but only does so in dire need. Note that even without Etrigan, Blood is quite powerful... and, apparently, quite well hung.


I get the impression Blood is quite the opposite, it seems to me he's on the "petite" side. :) When Deadman possesed him he looked down on Blood's crotch and said: "Would you look at that? No wonder Blood's always so moody..." :)

I'm in as Ollie.

 was thinking about joining the X-men game, and I don't think I could really keep up with 2 new games...  BUT.  My absolute favorite comic book character ever is DC.  And also, for the first time in a very long time I'm interested in playing a male character.  SO.

Do you have a Ray Terrill, AKA The Ray yet?

I'm sure he is, when he's not blasting people with hellfire. I just hope it doesn't have spikes or something  :o

It's actually implied in Obsidian Age that Ollie's even smaller, then. *smirk*

What? Nooooo, that can't be!  :)

Well, if that is so he must have mad skills, cause he seem to have a way with the ladies. I guess that proves size isn't everything (or so they'd have us believe).  :D

I did submit an X-Men character but she is pretty much normal I guess with no massive powers like some of the others. Just an enhanced intelligence and can become one with a computer so they kind of fit together- maybe down the road she'll have a suit of power armor. Right now she fixes small engines at a local shop on weekends and rennovates a computer to sell on eBay now and then for a little extra money.

I don't like overly powerful characters its more fun for me having a nice hero with a theme and that is fairly normal but with some advantages. Like in this game Tarantula the third to have that name and the most technologically advantaged of the three. But still is basically special tools with training to blend into a formidable heroine.

See, I chose the Ray because of his attitude.  He's just a regular kid, who discovered everything he'd ever known was a lie, perpetrated to keep him from discovering his powers.  And yet, he manages to get along mostly okay, and in spite of having the power to level cities on a sunny day, he really isn't conceited or egotictical.  Though he has been known to celebrate the victories.  ^.^  He's also kind of had bad luck with girls, something I think might change over the course of this game.  Hehe.

So, uh, when were you thinking of starting this game?  Are you waiting for more players, or maybe for the site mods to open the game forum?  Now I'm all excited to see it start.  ^.^

We have, unless I'm mistaken, five players right now, and I'll need at least seven.

Obsidian Age. JLAs 66-76. I don't recall which volume it was.

The plot? It's pretty long and convoluted...
