Shoe2 wrote:WHat a bout duplication. That seems like a cool BBEG power. Super smart planning guy and there are thousands of him all over the world executng various plans.
Shoe2 wrote:Other powers that are somewhat "broken" seem to lead to the most challanging villains...how about Precog/Postcog, Speedster, power mimic?
power mimic seems like a cool idea. Having him leech the powers off of the very fact that the heroes are nearby? Trying to stop him makes him stronger and all that....
just thinking out loud...well not literally, but you get the idea

Even if he is just creating an armored uniform people of earth not knowing (initially) which ones are real and have powers, and which are just effective killbots will radically increase his odds of victory. Aslo he was probably plan B of the invasion force and needs to be smart enough to manipulate the heroes and make a vaccine in addition to a rez device.

gerbilattack wrote:TL:DR He has the money and the smarts, why not make a robot army to aid in war/equipment to nullify newer weapons?
Unbeliever wrote:There's an arc in a comic book where the big reveal is that a character has a device that extracts powers from those he captures and puts in them. That would give him a bevy of abilities, which could be scary. It also might give you a nice reveal. Just make sure the powers are kind of distinctive, so that part of the arc can be the players discovering that this villain is using the distinctive powers of someone who is missing.
