We've got another new item for Aisle 2!

Image
I can't believe adding 3-D Man didn't raise sales of the Agents of Atlas book.

3-D MAN (DELROY GARRETT)
PL: 9 (137 pts) - OPL: 9 ; DPL: 9

ABILITIES: STRENGTH 6, STAMINA 6, AGILITY 7, DEXTERITY 5, FIGHTING 9, INTELLECT 1, AWARENESS 3, PRESENCE 1

SKILLS: Acrobatics 4 (+11) [Agile Feint], Athletics 7 (+13), Close Combat [Unarmed] 3 (+12), Deception (+1), Expertise [Decathlete] 5 (+6), Expertise [Theology and Philosophy] 5 (+6), Insight 4 (+7), Intimidation (+1), Investigation 6 (+7), Perception 5 (+8), Persuasion (+1), Stealth 2 (+9), Technology 3 (+4), Vehicles 2 (+7)

ADVANTAGES: Agile Feint, Defensive Attack, Defensive Roll (1), Equipment (1), Evasion (1), Improved Disarm, Ranged Attack (3), Takedown (1)

POWERS:
Abilities 3X that of a normal man: Speed 3 (16 mph), Leaping 2 (30 ft), Regeneration 3 (1/every 3 rounds), Senses 3 (Normal Vision [Extended], Normal Hearing [Extended], Scent [Extended]); 10 pts
I see Skrull people...: Senses 5 (Detect Skrulls [Visual; Acute, Counters Concealment, Ranged]); 5 pts

EQUIPMENT:
(5ep)
Avengers/Justice League Communicard: Senses 2 (Communication Link [Radio, Justice League Members), GPS, Feature 1 (Watchtower/Avengers Mansion Access), Benefit 1 (Justice League Status); 5ep

Unarmed +12 [Unarmed +6]
Ranged Attack +8

DEFENSES:
Dodge +11 [DC21] Parry +11 [DC21]
Toughness +7, Fortitude +9, Will +7

COMPLICATIONS:
Relationships: He is close to the original 3D Men and the Skrull Kill Krew
Responsibility: He feels it's his duty to hunt down and rid the world of any remaining Skrulls

Abilities 76 + Skills 23 (46 ranks) + Advantages 10 + Powers 15 + Defenses 13 = 137 / 137

Comments: Delroy Garrett is the 3rd 3D-Man. He was originally Triathlon, a pretty much failed “diversity Avenger” who fell into obscurity until the Secret Invasion when he was given the 3D Man goggles which allowed him to see the Skrulls, even in their enhanced disguises, which was quite valuable to the Initiative. He hasn’t been seen much since and probably won’t because he’s not a great character, but he’s turned OK.

He was going to be part of the MANUARY special, but I ran out of time with move and all so I've had him done for a while, just hadn't posted him.

We've got another new item for Aisle 6 with this new, Becoming a J-Mart Favorite item!

Image
You disrupt the natural order of things!!! Do you have any ideas the evils you have served? How much you have damaged civilization with your actions?!?!? DO YOU?!?!?!

DINOSAURUS
PL: 12 (160 pts) - OPL: 12 ; DPL: 12

ABILITIES: STRENGTH 15, STAMINA 12, AGILITY 1, DEXTERITY 2, FIGHTING 7, INTELLECT 8, AWARENESS 3, PRESENCE 3

SKILLS: Athletics 3 (+18), Close Combat [Unarmed] 2 (+9), Deception (+3), Expertise [Earth Sciences] 8 (+16), Insight (+3), Intimidation 8 (+11/+13) [Startle], Perception 4 (+7), Persuasion (+3), Stealth (+1/-3), Technology 5 (+13) [Inventor]

ADVANTAGES: All-Out Attack, Chokehold, Diehard, Equipment (4), Inventor, Power Attack, Startle

POWERS:
Dinosaurus Size: Growth 4 (+4 Str, +4 Sta, -2 Dodge/Parry, -4 Stealth, +2 Intimidation, Speed +0, +4 Mass; Extra: Innate, Permanent); 9 pts
Scaly Hide: Protection 3, Impervious 5; 13 pts
Tail: Extra Limbs 1 (Tail); 1 pt
Bite: Piercing Strength-based Damage 0, Enhanced Advantages 2 (Improved Critical 2); (Extra: Penetrating 10, Flaw: Grab-based); 6 pts

EQUIPMENT:
(20ep)
20ep for HQ, Science/Lab Equipment

OFFENSE:
Initiative +1
Close Attack +7 [Bite +15, Critical 18-20]
Unarmed +9 [Unarmed +15]
Ranged Attack +2

DEFENSES:
Dodge +7 [DC17] Parry +8 [DC18]
Toughness +15 (+5 Impervious), Fortitude +13, Will +11

COMPLICATIONS:
Monstrous Appearance: Dinosaurus cannot blend into normal society in his giant humanoid dinosaur form
Obsession: Saving the Earth, HIS way
Power Loss: When rendered unconscious he transforms back into his human form with STR 1, STA 1, INT 0, AWR 0 and cannot transform back unless his human form gets bored
Reputation: Destroyer of Las Vegas, maniacal villain
Rivalry: Stegron

Abilities 86 + Skills 15 (30 ranks) + Advantages 10 + Powers 29 + Defenses 20 = 160 / 160

Comments: Dinosaurus has become a great character in Invincible. At first, he seemed like your run of the mill, “I will destroy to save the Earth!” type of villain but Mark realizes he is more than that. After becoming disillusioned with what his superhero life has come to and realizing that beating up criminals all the time isn’t helping, he realizes Dinosaurus actually IS trying to save the Earth and Mark thinks that working together they can do it (without the massive loss of life his Las Vegas destruction caused). I can’t wait to see where they take that arc, but alas, I have to wait for the 16th Invincible TBP before I know because I am not reading spoilers anymore!

COMPLICATIONS:
b]Monstrous Appearance:[/b] Antonio's appearance can be unsettling for some and make it impossible for him to blend into normal society
Motivation: Getting the money needs, or performing services for someone who can pay for or perform an operation that can reverse his mutation
Reputation: Jobber villain, failed redeemed hero

Abilities 40 + Skills 8 (16 ranks) + Advantages 6 + Powers 32 + Defenses 15 = 101 / 101

Build Comments: Poor Antonio. The jobber with a heart. Dude has one of the best backgrounds for a villain ever. The love of his life needed an operation to survive and not being the sharpest blade in the drawer, he falls in with the bad guys, gets mutated into the big armadillo thing does some work and gets the money. It saves her life, she recovers and then she leaves him because of his monstrous appearance.

So he continues to job to try and find a way to get returned to normal and he’s even tried to reform, with little success. All the while pining for his lost love.

Love stinks.

Secret Origins: Antonio Rodriguez was born in San Antonio, Texas. He was given superhuman strength and durability by Dr. Karl Malus. This process bonded his costume to his body giving him a freakish appearance, causing him to resemble a humanoid armadillo.

The Armadillo's original motivation during his criminal career was to get enough money to be able to pay a doctor to discover a way to cure his girlfriend Maria of an unspecified terminal illness. When she was cured from her treatment, Maria abandoned him because of his appearance. Since that time, his motive has been to secure enough money to pay some other scientist to reverse the process which transformed him.

The Story so Far: As part of the Armadillo's first encounter with superheroes, he was dispatched by Dr. Malus to break into the West Coast Avengers Compound and free Goliath. There, the Armadillo battled Captain America who released him after learning of the sacrifice he made for the comatose Maria.

The Armadillo later joined the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation. While on tour with the UCWF, he battled Captain America and Hawkeye atop the Empire State Building. He had apparently gone berserk after discovering his estranged wife Bonita with another man, and was intending to commit suicide. Captain America tried to talk him down, but the Armadillo jumped off the building. He survived the fall, but was arrested.

He was later seen incarcerated in the Vault. Having been talked out of a criminal career by Captain America and his allies, he surrendered to avoid further prosecution. Armadillo only wished to serve out the remainder of his sentence. To this end, he fought against various supervillains who wished to engineer large-scale breakouts, including Venom and later various supervillains released by the Thunderbolts as they broke out Moonstone.

After being released from the Vault, Armadillo became the regional champion of the Ultimate Fighting League. After his defeat by Daniel Axum, formerly the villain Battler, Armadillo was reduced to begging in an alleyway. There, he talked Daniel Axum out of joining a Spider-Man Revenge Squad.

Having fallen on hard times, Armadillo proceeded to join the Constrictor and Jack O'Lantern in robbing an armored car. After his defeat by Hercules, Armadillo was incarcerated at The Raft, and chained to Tiger Shark. During the break-out initiated by Electro, Armadillo and Tiger Shark escaped and hid out in the town of Fairbury, Illinois. There, they were confronted by the Teen Titans, resulting in a battle in which both fugitives were defeated. Afterwards, Armadillo joined Vil-Anon, a twelve-step group dedicated to helping individuals overcome their criminal tendencies. Sometime later, Armadillo attended the funeral of Stilt-Man which was held at the Bar with No Name. After poisoning the guests, Punisher blew up the Bar. It was later mentioned that "they all had to get their stomachs pumped and be treated for third-degree burns."

Around this time, he was seen entering the office of The Consultant, a criminal PR agent of sorts who improves the reputation and occasionally powers of super-villains. Upon Armadillo's entering his office, the Consultant asked his secretary to cancel the rest of his appointments for the afternoon as he anticipated a lot of work improving Armadillo's image.

The Armadillo later took place in the Fifty State Initiative, as a member of Texas's superhero team, The Rangers. He, along with several other heroes, helped in save the President from an assassination attempt by HYDRA forces. However, he was fired by the Rangers for unstated reasons. He was next seen doing lucha libre wrestling in Mexico for small cash, eventually being recruited by MODOK for MODOK’s 11. After being one of the few villains that did not betray MODOK, Armadillo gains more money than initially promised. He happily departed with Puma and Nightshade, with whom he'd developed a friendship, and showed a desire for them to remain as a team. Although it was not to be.

The Hood hired him as part of his criminal organization to take advantage of the split in the superhero community caused by the Superhuman Registration Act. After the Siege of Asgard, he was seen as a bodyguard for the new Rose. Armadillo came into conflict with Jackpot and Spider Man when they tried to infiltrate the Rose's penthouse. Armadillo threw Jackpot through a window and prevented Spider Man from saving her

Armadillo later hid out in Puebla, but one of the locals reported him to a vigilante group, who attacked him. The fight is quickly joined by the Hulk and She-Hulk. She-Hulk convinced Armadillo to stop fighting. She also suggested helping the people of Puebla before turning himself in promising to act as his lawyer in court. He was recently seen fighting the Scarlet Spider at a rodeo in Houston when he drunkenly tried to reconnect with his ex-girlfriend.

Characterization: Antonio is one of the more sympathetic villains because of his sad backstory and his failed attempts to go straight. Still, he is a powerful foe when motivated and most street level heroes have learned not to take fights with him lightly.

Friends and Foes: He generally works alone but takes pretty much any job he can to make ends meet, even if his heart isn’t always in it.

Thanks for shopping at J-Mart, MrMorrison! :D

As I have mentioned many times, he's just about my all time favorite character so I really wanted to do him justice in the PC format. I dug the DCA version they did, but as I have stated before, I am compelled to do my own takes on my fave DC characters, regardless how great the official builds are. Plus, it's obvious from the initial official builds that they aren't looking at the PC format, so I felt there was definitely a niche there to fill.

And now, back to work...

We've got another addition to our JOB SQUAD line for Aisle 2!

Image
Now THAT'S how you job, folks!

MAN-BULL
PL: 9 (89 pts) - OPL: 9 ; DPL: 9

ABILITIES: STRENGTH 9, STAMINA 8, AGILITY 2, DEXTERITY 0, FIGHTING 6, INTELLECT -1, AWARENESS 0, PRESENCE -1

SKILLS: Athletics 2 (+11), Deception (-1), Expertise [Survival] 6 (+5), Intimidation 10 (+9), Persuasion (-1), Stealth (+2)

ADVANTAGES: All-Out Attack, Close Attack (1), Power Attack, Takedown (1)

POWERS:
Tough Hide: Protection 2, Impervious 3, Immunity 1 (Environmental Cold); 9 pts
Ramming Speed: Speed 2 (8 mph/120 fpr); 2 pts
Horns: Piercing Strength-based Damage 0 (Extras: Binding, Dangerous); 2 pts
GORE!: Piercing Strength-based Damage 2, (Extra: Dangerous, Penetrating 5, Tripping, Flaw: Limited [only when charging); 5 pts

EQUIPMENT:
NONE

OFFENSE:
Initiative +2
Close Attack +7 [Unarmed +9; Horns +9, Critical 19-20; Gore +11, Critical 19-20], Ranged Attack +0

DEFENSES:
Dodge +6 [DC16] Parry +6 [DC16]
Toughness +10 (+3 Toughness), Fortitude +11, Will +5

COMPLICATIONS:
Enemy: Daredevil (or really, any hero wearing red…)
Mental Instability: Man-Bull's intelligence is constantly in flux, but generally deteriorating as the long term effects of his transformation come to fruition
Reputation: Jobber villain

Abilities 46 + Skills 9 (18 ranks) + Advantages 4 + Powers 18 + Defenses 12 = 89 / 89

Comments: Gotta love the jobbers, man. Another of my favorites is the wonderfully lame Man-Bull. Big, dumb brick brutes are a dime a dozen in comics, but he has horns. That makes him better than a lot of others. Plus, I can always do my Joey Styles homage GORE! GORE! GORE!

Man I miss the real ECW… :(

Secret Origins: William "Bill" Taurens was born in Camden, New Jersey. He was hired by a Mister Kline to round up people to test an experimental serum taken from bulls made by his agent The Professor. His attempts were all thwarted by Daredevil. As a result, Bill ended up being a guinea pig for the serum which turned him in to humanoid bull.

The Story so Far: With his new powers, Man-Bull attempted to take his revenge on Daredevil and the two have clashed on several different occasions, with Bill generally coming out on the short end of the stick. He did try to go straight for a while, but ended up falling back into his villainous ways to make ends meet.

Characterization: Man-Bull is a jobber villain with little intelligence. He’s generally just used a pawn by other mastermind villains.

Friends and Foes: He has a rivalry with Daredevil, but it’s pretty one-sided.

Vulnerable: Static's power can be shorted out by water and other grounding items/devices

Abilities 50 + Skills 24 (48 ranks) + Advantages 7 + Powers 73 + Defenses 21 = 175 / 175

Comments: Static, one of Milestone’s biggest successes. The comic was successful enough for them to make a pitch to Fox Kids back in the day and Virgil even got his own cartoon, which lasted for 3 seasons. That’s pretty rare air for superheroes when you think about it. Outside of maybe 5-6 main characters from the big companies, it’s usually teams that have series that last that long. Now he has crossed over into the DCU, and although his new comic got yanked after 8 issues, that was more the creative team than the property, I think.

Static is a pretty dangerous opponent. He has a lot of ways to deal with foes, and anything I didn’t think of (which shouldn’t be much, I loaded him up with Alternate Effects off his blast), he can power stunt. I wanted to make him someone that could hang in a Justice League level setting and I think I did that.

Oh, I plan on it, good sir. I've been rejuvenated as of late and RL has slowed a bit to allow me some time to actually pursue my little hobby here again. I AM going to play these builds, too! I'm going start some playtests this weekend if all goes well and try to line out a least a short storyline before the holidays start.

INVINCIBLE PC

Yes! I love it! Seriously, dude, thanks for the sweet build. I have a special place in my heart for Image, and really dig Invincible.

And, Cartoon Network hasn't picked it up because it's like Kick-Ass with super powers. I expect they have an easier time with Metalocalypse in many ways.

At first, I thought "I want to protect Mom." The ones to protect increased with the birth of my sisters. I kept going to a dojo for the sake of protecting them. I got a bit stronger. The ones I thought I wanted to protect became more and more. - Ichigo Kurosaki

Comments: Ichigo is the main antagonist in the long running Bleach manga and anime. As such, he has really worked almost like a PC in a game. He started out pretty basic and over time has gotten more powerful as he has accomplished more things and defeated more enemies. So I am taking that approach with him here. I am building 3 (maybe 4) different versions of him to show his progression. This version is him at the end of the first arc/beginning of the second showing where he has gotten pretty strong in his new Shinigami form and his immense spiritual pressure and natural fighting skills make him able to beat Renji (who I would put at about PL9-10 at this point with his Shikai) and take out Menos Grande hollows but when Byakuya Kuchiki shows up, he has NO shot.

Over time, he gets more training from Kisuke Urahard, The Visoreds and others, not mention gathering more Power Points and Hero Points from fighting and defeating other Shinigami, Hollows and Arrancar and he becomes a more powerful character. Where I see him as of my stopping point in the series (around episode 240 I think and they're up to episode 397 in Japan, I believe) is coming up riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight....

...now. :wink:

The difference... in strength... what about it? Do you think I should give up... just because you're stronger than me...? I've always known you were strong. Nothing I see now will change my mind. I will defeat you, Ulquiorra... - Ichigo Kurosaki to Espada Ulquiorra Cifer

COMPLICATIONS:
Dark Side: Due to his accelerated training to achieve Bankai, his hollow side is strong and threatens to overtake him if he loses control
Enemy: King Fisher, several others
Guilt: Ichigo’s guilt over his mother’s death seeps over to when he thinks he fails others and causes his combat focus to drop like a rock
Motivation: Ichigo will get involved in situations he knows nothing about at the drop of a hat if it means protecting someone in danger
Normal Identity: In soul reaper form, Ichigo’s mortal body falls unconscious. However, since he has Kon or a number of other ways to make sure his body is taken care of, this complication does not come into effect too often
Power Loss: It takes a lot of spiritual energy for Shinigami to use Bankai and Arrancar to use Resurrecion. As such, it is up to the GM to determine when and if those powers can be activated and maintaining usage of those powers can eventually lead to exhaustion and inability to utilize those powers until the users' spiritual pressure has a chance to recharge
Relationships: Initially, he has strong ties with Orihime, Chad, Tatsuki and Keigo Asano. He is close with his sisters Yuzu and Karin, and even his dad, Ishiin. Eventually, this expands to being tight with Uryu and Rukia. And Nel Tu during the Hueco Mundo arc
Responsibility: To protect Karakura Town as a substitute Soul Reaper
Rivalry: With his dad, Ishiin Kurosaki, who is always "surprise" attacking him to toughen him up and Uryu Ishida who wants to prove the Quincies are better than the Shinigami

Abilities 72 + Skills 15 (30 ranks) + Advantages 24 + Powers 89 + Defenses 18 = 218 / 218

Comments: This is the full blown Ichigo as of the Hueco Mundo/Fake Karakura Town arc right before he gets one more power up to take on Aizen in the final battle of that massive arc. He has unlocked Zangetsu's Shikai and achieved Bankai to be able to hang with the Soul Reaper/Shinigami Captains and the Espada. He has also learned how to use his Hollow side to gain even greater power, but at this point, he can only use it for short periods at time. Eventually that limitation passes.

I am torn about doing one more version, but we'll see. If I actually get the guts to stat up Sosuke Aizen, I'll have to do it for balance reasons.

And I did not make him a Minion or a Sidekick because it has become obvious that he probably the wisest character in those books and it's also become debatable as to who owns who. 8)


When Butcher did a signing at a local store, he said he could never do a story from Mouse's point of view, because Mouse knows too much and would give away the story. He also said that Mouse sometimes looks at Harry's so-called plans and thinks, "Really? That's your plan. ((heavy sigh))"
