Nice Taskmaster! I wasn't always such a big fan of his in the past (didn't much like the outfit), but he's grown on me in the last couple of years.

I really like the UDON redesign that he got in the early 2000's. This I think was for his Mini-series but they carried it over into Gail Simone's run on Deadpool and then her run on Agent X where he was a supporting character. He was fun in Agent X.

Mayhaps... :wink:

My writing/playtesting groove has been off, but I am really getting the itch to play and I really want to test my Batman, and other PCs. Plus, I promised I would run a game this spring/summer so I guess I'd better get the 3E rules down.

I did promise one of my FTF homies that I would test Gambit first, so I'll be starting with that and work my way into something more, hopefully.

Then he got schooled by Bucky Cap. Oh well, he was smart enough to high-tail it before things went completely to hell and that’s what I love about him. He’s an opportunist.
What I love about Task-Master is that he's essentially the sort of supervillain that a fan would become if he was suddenly told "Here. Build yourself as a super-hero/villain and go jump into the Marvel universe." He picks up a power that lets him do all sorts of different things, but not a particularly powerful one so as to keep it quite cheap. It's the sort of power that lets him reinvent his persona later on if he wants to. He has a simple plan for a kind of supervillainry* that makes him money and lets him have a secret lair, without much risk of the authorities, super-heroes or super-villains ever trying to kill him or anything. And he never really kills for fun, usually not even for money, thus avoiding antagonising the heroes too much.

* By this, I mean that he gets to do the Bond villain thing, building a secret lair and hiring good-looking people who do cool things, and then training up an army of henchmen. Then, instead of using them to try to take over the world and end up getting shot at by a secret agent or beaten up by a superhero, he gets paid for his efforts by the people that the henchmen are actually going to work for! Then he can put all that money towards improving the operation.

In Marvel he is my favorite villain. Photographic Reflexes is a power I would love to have, so I can totally agree with that. in DC I like Deahtstroke, I guess I just sort of like the character that can say, "I might not be the best in the world, but I am better than you."


Hmn, I wonder how you'd stat that.

Dude, I still owe you a PL10 Deathstroke! I promise I will get on that!

I may do a full out Deathstroke, too, since I grow impatient for the H&V I book.

Haha don't feel rushed ;)

I was seriously just sort of pondering that. I mean, you have Mimicry but that's just a copy of the power. You have Nemesis which is a counter to the power. I suppose you could go with a Variable power, but with PL caps it wouldn't work.


I mean how would you do the, "You might be Chuck Norris, but I am Bruce Lee, *beat down*." haha

Vulnerable Magnetic attacks

Abilities 76 + Skills 21 (42 ranks) + Advantages 7 + Powers 226 + Defenses 12 = 342 / 342

Comments: I really like how this Ultron came out in 3E. He’s one of my favorite Marvel villains, not just because he hates Pym (and like I said, I am trying to change ways on that) but because of his power set and the fact that when he is handled right, he is a great global threat with believability, which can be rare. Granted his Oedipus issue motivations aren’t the best but again, he does want to kill Pym which I cannot completely discount as a great motivation…

But I am trying…

This Ultron has several Perception range attacks that can be easily used to power stunt more powerful attacks for usage against Sentry types. But the Perception attacks can eliminate a lot of the normal Avengers right off the bat, leaving him free to focus on the big guns and come out on top, simply because he is hard as hell to hurt. He’s high on the 2011 test list.

Clean Up 2/10/11: Raised Ultron a PL to fit better with the DCA PL structure and making him a better Avengers/JLA level threat. And here are the Ultron Drones:

Comments: After his tour de force portrayal in the Gamma World episode of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and his starring role in World War Hulks, I had to take my first run at The Leader. He’s the type of build that is easy to work up, but harder to use because you really have to amp him up with a killer HQ and powerful minions to make him a serious threat. That’s really the only reason I made him PL12, just to allow his Inventions and Minions to be powerful enough to give Hulk, or a team of PL10-ish heroes a run.

Speaking of Gamma World, here are some minions for him kinda based on the episodes.

Comments: Always been a fan of Pete. I think we’ve discussed before about the propensity for us former (or current in my case) fat kids always wanting to be, or identifying with the bricks in comics and I am certainly guilty as charged. When I first started reading X-Men, it was X-Men 101 when Jean had just gotten her first dose of the Phoenix powers and the “All-New X-Men” had gone to Cassidy Keep for a vacation while Scott and Professor X stayed with the ill, or so we thought, Jean. Out of Banshee, Storm, Nightcrawler, Wolverine and Colossus, it was Pete who became an immediate fave. They took on Juggernaut and Black Tom and Colossus held his own with Juggy, so it was obviously before the power creep really set in for him, but I dug him immediately. Wolvie at the time was just kinda…annoying. Amazing change for him over the years for sure.

But Pete has remaining a popular character for years with his sensitivity and badassery when it’s really called for.

OFFENSE:
Initiative +6
Close Attack +11 [Unarmed +19]
Ranged Attack +5
Heat Vision +10 [Heat Vision +15]
Special Attack [Super Breath Move Object +15, Area Cone]

DEFENSES:
Dodge +8 [DC18] Parry +10 [DC20]
Toughness +19 (Ultimate Effort), Fortitude +15, Will +10

COMPLICATIONS:
Identity: Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for the Daily Planet
Power Loss: Superman loses his powers and his Str and Sta are reduced to 3 under a red sun, like that of Krypton, and other effects draining or interfering with the energies of the yellow sun can deprive him of his powers
Relationships: Superman’s closest relationship is with his wife, Lois Lane. Other important people in his life include his
mother, Martha Kent, and friends and co-workers Jimmy Olsen,
Perry White, and Catherine “Cat” Grant
Responsibility: Superman feels a strong sense of responsibility to use his powers for the benefit of all
Weakness: Superman is as vulnerable to magic as anyone else. His Toughness is not Impervious against magical attacks
Weakness: Kryptonite...Its radiation saps the Strength and powers of Kryptonians, leaving them impaired, disabled, and eventually debilitated in terms of Strength and power effects. Long-term exposure (usually a matter of minutes, less for a large enough amount) imposes the dying condition and may lead to death

Comments: Look, I know the DCA group at Green Ronin have done, and will do some excellent builds. I believe the builds in the DCA core book are generally excellent. They are fin versions of the iconic characters, they show how to use the system and Kenson's Batman is genius, IMHO.

HOW-EV-AH

I have to build DC characters. I don’t want to. I have to. It’s part of my disease, CCCS, Compulsive Character Creation Syndrome that I have been afflicted with since I started playing D&D back in the 80’s. It got worse with MnM 2E has not abated as only thing stopping me from statting all the time are the silly distractions of family and work. And as the original J-Mart proves, I love to build the big names over and over and over with different takes. And that will not change with 3E. So I will keep building DC character up to and after Heroes and Villains 1 & 2 come out. 'Cause that's what I do.

So here is my Superman. I borrowed from the DCA version of course, but took him down a PL and gave him a little Thorpacoverse house rule flavor and tweaks to make him how I like him. I'm still iffy on the Kryptonian setup at this point, but trust me, there will be updates as we get more new 3E books and as I continue to get comfortable with the system.

In the Thorpacoverse, he is pretty much his usual self. However, the main players in my world, meaning the usual suspects of Supes, Batman, Wonder Woman, Thor, Steve Rogers and Iron Man are members of both the Justice League and The Avengers in order to foster more commaradarie between the big time teams of the Thorpacoverse and the superhero community overall. None of them are working with either team all the time, but any of them could show up in future Thorpacoverse type team rumbles and such.

Clean Up 11/24/10: Clark gets a clean up. I did a little shifting with his power, making several of them part of a dynamic array. I can't wait to test it. I find it hard to believe it will be a big issue mechanically, but we'll see.

Clean Up 2/10/11: Moving my original Superman up to a PC version at PL15. I think I got in just about everything I wanted and I raised his Toughness to +19 which is a rank higher than the official version, but considering that the official Captain Marvel is +19 and Grundy is +20, I think that’s the way it should be.
As I had stated before, I am getting rid of my original NPC-ish DC builds in deference to the official versions. I am still, however, going to keep dropping DC PCs along with updating the ones I've done to higher PLs and/or just tightening things up. As such, I am replacing my original Superman build with this PL15 PC version and it was a lot of fun to build. I am keeping the other PL14 version in case I have one my trademark changes of heart, but right now, this is my standard version as keep moving along in PC mode.

I got almost everything in I wanted and I got his Toughness up to +19 which is where I think it should be if Captain Marvel has a +19 in his official build. Superman should be his equal or slightly greater in most categories, IMHO.

Nice builds Thorp. I forgot about the healing on Colossus when he changes to human form. I would love to see Minions R Us. That would be great. I remember the Leader have some minions made of rubber. Hulk use to have difficulty with them. So if you do any more minions would like to see them. Plus so many others.

Comments: Whew, another labor of love build, playable Batman at PL12. I tried, and will try again to get one at PL10 that I like, but man, that’s tougher in 3E than I thought. I'll get it done at some point. But for now, I feel pretty good about this one. As I mentioned in the Nightwing build, I plan on using these soon and I actually plan on using them as real PCs in my own little campaign so hopefully the few things I really wanted to put in I can put in as I add points for successful completions of scenes.

Clean Up 2/14/10: Well, I still haven't gotten around to using my PC builds, but hey, 3E is just an infant, right? I have plenty of time. :wink:

Anyway, cleaned up this PC Bruce again. Tighter than the first round, but not a lot of changes. I raised his attributes, which actually ended up saving me a couple of pts to throw into other skills and advantages.
Doing a lot of reviews right now and of course, you know I can't NOT do more Batman building. I cleaned up this PC Bruce and my PC Grayson Batman as well. I realized that generally for skill monkey types, you are better off pumping up the Intellect, Presence and Awareness as much a possible. Saves you points in the long run with the 2pts/per rank Skill cost. In 2E, it seemed better to have to have a dump stat like Charisma, but I really see the benefit of the higher scores now for those 3 attributes.
