Real Name: Mark Leeds
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 200 lbs
Hair: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue


Complications:
Enemy: August Roman, Blackthorn, Cerberus, Queen Khana, Superior, Tom Cyprus, and of course Omega.

Relationships: Laurie Lamont (girlfriend early in career, later his wife), and his teammates in the Freedom League.

Responsibility: Centurion feels a strong sense of responsibility to use his powers for the benefit of all

Secret Identity: Mark Leeds, history professor at Freedom City University.


Background: Born on a parallel Earth where the Roman Empire never fell, a far more technologically advanced civilization than any on twentieth-century Earth, the infant that would grow up to become the Centurion was placed in an experimental life pod by his scientist father when the forces from the Terminus were on the verge of conquering their planet to save his life by sending him across dimensions. Exposure to powerful cosmic energies during the journey changed the infant, giving him the potential to develop tremendous powers.

A “shooting star” seen above Freedom City streaked westward and came quietly to rest in Wharton Forest. Tom Leeds found the capsule with the baby boy inside. Concealing the life-pod, Leeds and his wife Mabel turned the child over to the Danvers Orphanage in the city and adopted him soon thereafter, naming him Mark.

The Leeds raised Mark and, as his powers matured, taught him to use his gifts responsibly. Young Mark Leeds later learned the truth about his origins, the existence of the Terminus, and the world from which he came from a recording device in his life-pod. Fashioning a Romanesque costume to conceal his true identity, he adopted the sobriquet “Centurion” and used his powers to fight crime and injustice. In his secret identity, Mark Leeds is a grad student studying history at Freedom City University, specializing in the Roman Empire, naturally enough.

The Centurion was among the first heroes to respond to President Roosevelt’s call to form the Liberty League. He was also quick to turn down any offer to lead the team, deferring to Dr. Tomorrow and Freedom Eagle. Instead, he is a stalwart supporter of the team, looking out for those of his teammates less impervious than he, which is to say, all of them.

After the HUAC hearings the Centurion went into 'retirement', focusing more on his life as Mark Leeds; completing his studies and becoming a history teacher (with a focus on the Roman era). He also married his long time girlfriend, Laurie Lamont. Periodically there would be a natural disaster would occur which would draw Centurion out only for him to disappear as soon as the crisis had been dealt with.

In 1960 Hades invaded Freedom City which brought Centurion out of retirement and during the conflict a number of newer heroes, who had become active in the past year, marshalled their forces against the Greek God of the Underworld and eventually defeated him. Realizing they can deal with threats more effectively as a team, but legally prohibited from using the name Liberty League, band together to form the Freedom League.

Although the immortal Daedalus and Siren were both older than he, Centurion was really the mentor and leader of the team, a duty he accepted reluctantly, since he never quite felt worthy of it. Still, Centurion’s dedication to the League was never in doubt, even when the other members of the team chose to leave it, Centurion remained steadfast in his dedication to the League. He eventually disbanded the League when he could no longer be responsible for the deaths of the young heroes (Tectonic and Halogen) under his guidance, though he still remained active as a hero on his own.

It was during this time that Laurie Leeds died of old age, leaving Centurion alone and seeing no reason to continue living a double life Mark Leeds 'retired' from teaching and 'moved' out of state. The truth of the matter is that the Centurion took up living in his Sanctum full time and devoted himself to helping all the people of the world, a task made easier by his advanced monitoring technology which allowed him to learn of crisis situations as they happened.

Nothing too fancy here really, just a pretty straightforward conversion from 2E aside.

Still considering Centurion has 8 Power Levels on him, I think Rich is doing pretty good ;~)
Besides, it's good to have something to strive towards.

Benchpress Champion is more like it. While he's a strength 20 for arm wrestling (staggering in itself), he's a whopping Str. 32 for lifting. That's a 100,000 kiloton lift and using extra-effort, he could push that up to 400,000 ktons (because he's got extraordinary effort). Two words...

...Holy Crap!

PL:
16
Strength 20

Dexterity 2
Fighting 8
Intellect 1
Awareness 2
Presence 2

Skills: Insight 10 (+12), Intimidation 12 (+14), Perception 10 (+12), Persuasion 6 (+8), Ranged Combat [Thrown Objects] 9 (+11)

Advantages: All-Out Attack, Close Attack 4, Improved Initiative, Power Attack, Second Chance [Will Resistance vs. Mind Control effects]

Defense: Dodge +10
Parry +11
Toughness +16* [*Impervious 12]
Fortitude +16
Will +10


Costs: Abilities 106+ Skills 17+ Advantages 8+ Powers 58+ Defenses 19= 208 pts.


Height: 6'1"
Weight: 220 lbs
Hair: Black
Eye Color: Green


Complications:
Abandonment Issues: Because Omega has never tried to rescue him from the Zero Zone the Alpha Centurion burns with a deep hatred of his creator and will seek vengeance upon the Lord of the Terminus for his betrayal.

Enemy: The Freedom League, Omega.

Motivation ~Chaos & Power: The Alpha Centurion seeks to take over Earth and make it his own and is willing to destroy virtually anyone who would try to stop him.


Background: Still one of the most hated villains of the modern times, the Alpha Centurion is still remembered for his impersonation of Centurion (as back then he looked identical to the dead hero) in an effort to allow the forces of the Terminus to invade Earth once again.

He still remains a prisoner in the Zero Zone.

Notes & Comments wrote:Well I figured that since I posted a build for Centurion I ought to do a couple of his foes....kind of. Alpha Centurion is the dark reflection of Centurion with very minor differences, mostly in his advantages and a couple minor tweaks in his attributes but otherwise a cut-n-paste. Which makes sense as he's something of a clone.

Real Name: Kal-Zed
Height: 6’6”
Weight: 220 lbs
Hair: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue


Complications:
Enemy: Centurion (Superior has no idea he's dead).

Motivation ~Conquest: Superior plans to dominate the world, just as his Ultima ancestors did centuries ago.

Background: The rogue Ultiman who allied himself with the Nazis in WWII, Kal-Zed managed to escape capture after the war and renamed himself Superior as he tried to continue his quest to rule the Earth.

This brought him back into conflict with his wartime opponent, the Centurion, and though the two fought several intense, and very close, battles he was stopped time after time. Eventually Centurion banished Superior to the Zero Zone with the blessing of Superior's people (who view Kal-Zed as both insane and a criminal, a first for them). Decades later he's still their despite the fact that the Centurion died years ago (a fact Superior will be bothered by as he's been looking forward to paying him back for imprisoning him).

Notes & Comments wrote:The other big rival to Centurion, Superior.
He's a challenge since he's got a few more choices in combat but isn't all that different in a fight compared to Centurion.

As long as the Alpha Centurion never escapes I may yet still manage making Richard the strongest man on Earth. ;~)

Edit: I stand corrected. As long as Alpha Centurion and Superior never escape.

Richard should count himself lucky. Over in GCG Bedros was more then likely added to Alpha Centurions list of people "whose rear ends I'm going to kick when I get out of here" :mrgreen:

Well, technically Alpha Centurion's already kicked the unholy heck out of Richard... In what might have been the future.

My only question would be...why does Alpha Centurian have the letter Omega on his chest, not Alpha? Supremely powerful, yet surprisingly illiterate.

Well, he was created by Omega and was working as an agent of Omega to set up the world for another invasion when he was uncovered as a fake and captured.

Uh huh. So...he was giving a secret clue to his actual allegiance? I mean at some point you'd think somebody would mention his little spelling faux pas to him, leaving him to pretend he's an idiot or say; "Oh yeah, that. That symbol isn't for me, it references my boss...just in case I forget who I'm really working for. Just kidding."

it's one of those smart costume deals, where it did resemble centurion's outfit, but changed once he revealed his true loyalties
