As well as North America, Europe also has a tradition of superhumans, both heroic and villainous alike. This is but a short list of the more heroic types on the Continent.
- Chanteclair: Chanteclair uses his sound-based powers to protect Paris. His trademark move is a cockerel's crow that can paralyse just about anyone in earshot. He's been effective to the point that the sound of a cockerel's crowing will make any Frenchman who's done something really wrong a bit paranoid.
- Martin Matin: Martin is a schoolkid who wakes up as something different every day. For example, he's been confirmed to have been transformed into an alien, a dragon, a musketeer, and even as a paragon-type superhero. Each transformation of his lasts until the next morning.
The main problem that Martin has with his transformation, is that he often ends up in a dangerous situation which has something to do with what he's currently become and which usually requires his wits and whatever skills and powers his transformation has given him to get back out of it. And when Martin doesn't transform, it's because his circumstances have changed. For example, the second incident of Martin being 'normal' again turned out to be him becoming really unlucky.
He has no control at all over what he becomes, and he has even been gender-swapped on two occasions (He returned to being a boy again the next morning). In fact, the first recorded transformation made Martin part-dragon! The biggest psychological issue that Martin has is that he perceives the transformation as a form of unique handicap. What he wants the most is either no more transformations, or some way to control them.
He is helped by his girlfriend Roxanne and his best friend, Gromo. They will follow him anywhere, from a witch's apartment, to alien worlds and even to the depths of Hell if need be.
Which actually happened once when Martin woke up as a demon one morning, complete with a Martin-sized Abyssal Trident next to his bed. At school, he found a lift that allowed him to access the Pit. He was given a contract to sign, the offer for which was simple: No more transformations. A succubus who was disguised as Roxanne was convincing Martin to sign the contract, not knowing that the real Roxanne was watching the deal from an air vent. NO ONE was taking her Martin, especially not some demonic impostor! She burst out of the vent and grabbed the succubus by her tail, the sight of which - and Roxanne's telling Martin what he was really giving away in exchange - left him with no other choice but to reject the bargain before it could be signed. The chase back to the lift - and their only chance to safely get back to Earth - was the fastest that the three kids ever ran in their lives.
Everyone in Paris who wants to keep their presence in the city a secret is worried that Martin's next transformation will require them to deal with him. Half because they run the risk of exposure just trying to keep him from messing with their agenda, and half because they don't want to be seen breaking the Traditions by harming a child, which will likely have every super in the world after them.
Martin has gotten used to dealing with the supernatural, having literally been to Hell and back, and even encountering the Pesedjet (Egyptian pantheon) and the Dodekatheon (Greco-Roman pantheon) on separate occasions.
- La Pucelle (The Maid): This master swordswoman wields the arming sword believed to have been originally used by Joan of Arc.
- La Sorcière Verte (The Green Witch): The Green Witch (Who refuses to reveal her real name) is well known in the occult scene for her occasional experiments with techno-magic. She once encountered Martin Matin when he was turned into a witch himself for the day. She kept his flying broomstick as compensation for accidentally breaking her window, and has since gotten it under control. She is known to be one of the admins for MagicNet, the most popular website, forum and wiki for magicians around the world.
- Geselle (Journeyman): This speedster triggered his metagene just before his journeyman years in electrical engineering. After he completed his two-year Walz, the Deutsch Schutz Liga - Germany's most well-known superteam - invited him to join them. His weapon of choice is his old Journeyman's Staff. He has a major beef with Blitz, the Neo-Nazi speedster, for making Germany look bad.
- Tabaluga: This friendly dragon is known all over Germany because of the TV show he did with ZDF. He often helps nearby firemen, who are very grateful to know someone who's completely flameproof for the really dangerous rescues.
- Faceoff: Faceoff is an armed vigilante in the mould of the Punisher. He has recently discovered that the 3rd Street Saints are expanding into London, and that they're dealing in super-drugs. He spread the word to the Time in a Bottle website that very night.
- Knight and Squire: Cyril Sheldrake is the second person to assume the mantle of the Knight, and is considered to be Britain's greatest hero. Beryl Hutchinson used her communication powers to get Cyril to turn his life around when he couldn't handle the responsibility of the Knight's legacy. She was made the new Squire for her efforts. The Knight has been an ally of Batman on several occasions.
NOTE: The vast majority of European supers, whether or not they're heroic or villainous in nature, will absolutely refuse to cut a deal with or otherwise work alongside anyone known to be a Fascist or Communist of any sort under any circumstances. The only supers known to work with Fascists or Communists at all are those who are also motivated by the same form of extremism. And extremism is the only word that the European supers all willingly use for such beliefs.
