Behold, the embodiment of the Wrath of God known as The Spectre!
This build reflects when Jim Corrigan wore the mantle of The Spectre. Other than his strength and constitution, his ability scores are the same as when he was a mere mortal; but he can always use his variable power to give himself Enhanced Abilities. His skills and feats are mostly the same also; but being the Spectre, he has a number of Enhanced feats and skills (gained from Enhanced Talented feats) as well.
I must say, I felt a little overwhelmed when I began to stat this guy, trying to figure out just how powerful he was. In the end, I decided that he was a PLX character, but only when wrathful. Normally, I decided The Spectre operates at power level 18, but when he is feeling Wrathful he can boost his power to ungodly (or is that Godly
?) hights and become a true PL X character rivaling just about everyone and everything in the DC Universe. And what provokes The Spectre’s Wrath, you ask? Murders and Evil Wrongdoings he percieves to cry out for vengeance.
Note – I considered giving him Divine Inspiration, but in most cases he has as little contact with God as we do and must make his choices on his own.
