Ah! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
Oh and Stormwood (great druid name!) is an awesome build with an even more awesome picture.
Harharhar! Mine is an evil laugh! Now Die!
I'm glad you like the build and name, and I'm really glad you like the picture. I had to search DeviantArt of hours before finding it.
Sincerely, Sand Fox

I've only one little nitpick about Vig, Outlaws is perhaps a too broad catagory of opponents.

That Shining Knight clip was pretty epic, him and Vigilante seems to be an unusual but cool pair. I wish I could have watched more of JLU but due to financial reasons I had to downgrade my Netflix account to Instant Queue only...
Nightwing makes a Toughness Save against Red Hood's Sneak Attack with knife; dealing Lethal Damage. 8 + 5 - 1 (he has 4 Bruised, but only 1 Injured, which is what matters) = 12. The Save DC was 20 (the House Rules are that the base save for Lethal Damage is 20 rather than 15) + 7 = 27. He fails by 15 and is Unconscious and Dying. Nightwing makes a Fortitude Save to avoid death; 14 + 5 = 19. He make it. He gains a Hero Point for the Complication of Red Hood backstabbing him. Starfire gains a Hero Point for seeing this happen; she also gained one earlier for the complication of her being pregnant. Nightwing now has 2 Hero Points, and Starfire has 3 Hero Points.
Starfire uses a Hero Point to overcome her Power Loss drawback. She is drawing on her rage and hatred for Red Hood to fuel her powers, gaining a level of Moral Taint. The Taint inflicts the following to her build:
Starfire's Starbolts are now classified as Hellfire Control.
She gains the Alternate Power: Hellfire Control (Line Area, Each uses grants a level of Taint), Rank 10.
Drawback: She must now make a Will Save (10 + Taint Level) whenever angered or attack the source of her ire. If she feels hatred, Starfire must make a Will Save (15 + Taint Level) or attack with Lethal Force.
Each Rank of Moral Taint is a penalty to Starfire's Wisdom Score.
Starefire now has 2 Hero Points; she has 1 Rank in Taint.
Starfire slams on her cell's door with her now renewed strength. It has a Toughness of 8, and rolls a 5 + 8 = 13; it fails by 12 and is Disabled, breaking open a nice big hole in it.
Starfire: 15 + 6 = 21
Red Hood: 11 + 8 = 19
No one starts flatfooted.
Starfire uses her Line Blast, attacking Red Hood. She's not playing around and uses Lethal force. Red Hood rolls Reflex for half damage, gets 14 + 9 = 23; he passes. Red Hood rolls makes his Toughness save, getting 6; GM fiat to re-roll. 10 + 7 = 17 (note that Red Hood has no Lethal Damage conditions); The Damage DC was 20 + 5 = 25; Red Hood fails by 8 and is Bruised a fifth time, Injured, and Stunned. Because he passed his Reflex save for half damage, I'll rule that he doesn't take Knockback Damage. Kory moves toward Red Hood. from the Starfire has 3 Hero Points and 2 Rank in Taint.
Red Hood is Stunned and unable to go.
Starfire moves a few feet closer, firing her Starbolt with Accurate Attack 3. Attack roll of 8 + 10 + 3 = 21 vs. 14 + 4 = 18; a hit. Red Hood gets 19 + 5 - 1 = 23; he fails by 4 and is Bruised a sixth time and Injured a Second.
Red Hood throws one of his Sleep Gas bombs at Kory. She makes a Reflex Save to half the effect, getting 2 + 7 = 9. She makes a Fortitude Save, getting a 4 and user a Hero Point to re-roll. 14 + 8 = 22; she passes with ease. Red Hood moves 30 feet away, not wanting to go melee with Starfire until he's weakened her a little. Starfire has 2 Hero Points.
Starfire Charges Red Hood, getting 11 + 10 + 2 = 23 vs. Red Hood's 16 + 13 = 29; miss.
Red Hood attempts to Feint as a move action, getting 9 + 14 - 5 = 18 vs. 14 + 14 = 28; fail. Red Hood Power Attacks 4, getting 10 + 13 - 4 = 19 vs. 7 + 8 - 2 = 13; hit. Kory's Toughness is 19 + 12 = 31; she's not even scratched.
Starfire attempts to Grapple Red Hood, provoking an Attack of Opportunity. Red Hood gets 12 + 13 = 25 vs. 14 + 8 = 22; Kory's Toughness is 8 + 12 = 20; she's not harmed. Kory rolls Attack, getting 9 + 10 = 19 vs 6 + 13 = 19; a hit. The two roll contested Grapples, Kory gets 13 + 10 + 10 = 33 and Red Hood rolls 11 + 13 + 3 = 27. Starfire wins, and I will let her use a Sunder attack as part of the Grapple to break on of his arms. Red Hood will make a normal Toughness save, as if she had chosen to deal damage; however, Kory will only be able to deal non-lethal damage, and if he fails the save by 10, instead of being Staggered, Red Hood will be Stunned, Bruised, and will loose the use of his arm. Red Hood makes his Toughness save, getting 12 + 7 - 6 = 13. He fails by 12 and his arm is broken. Red Hood is Bruised a seventh time, and he's Stunned.
Red Hood is Stunned and unable to go.
Kory gives up the Grapple and blasts Red Hood at with her Line Blast at Melee Range. Normally, firing at close range would provoke an Attack of Opportunity, but he's Stunned. With means he can't make a Reflex Save either. He rolls 15 + 5 - 2 = 18. He fails by 12 and is Staggered, Stunned, and Disabled. The wall behind him is also hit by the blast, and it rolls 4 + 10 = 14. It's completely incinerated, and the Knockback Red Hood took throws him through the hole. Starfire has 3 ranks in Taint.
Red Hood is Stunned and unable to go.
Capain America, Deadpool and his two robot friend are now joining the fight, so they all roll Initiative:
Captain America: 8 + 10 = 18
Deadpool: 14 + 4 = 18
Robot #1: 14 + 2 = 16
Robot #2: 5 + 2 = 6
Captain America: 4 Bruised, 3 Injured, 2 Hero Points
Robot #1: 2 Injured, Disabled
Robot #2: 3 Injured
Starfire walks over to where Red Hood fell, not caring about the rest of the battle. She uses Demoralizes Red, getting +1 per rank in Taint she has (3 Ranks), +4 because she just blasted him though a wall, and +2 because Red Hood is clearly outmatched at this point and has a broken arm. 17 + 4 + 3 + 4 + 2 = 30 vs. Red Hood's 6 + 12 = 18.
Red Hood is stunned.
Captain America attacks Deadpool, getting 9 + 13 = 22 vs. Deadpool's 18 + 12 = 30. No hit. Deadpool gets to use his Counterattack feat with his swords, getting 2 + 13 = 15 vs. 9 + 14 = 23. No hit again.
Deadpool runs over to Starfire and tries to stop her from beating up Red Hood anymore than she already has. He moves out of the area that Captain America threatens, provoking an Attack of Oppertunity; 12 + 13 = 25 vs. 4 + 12 = 16; a hit. Deadpool gets 17 + 9 = 26 on Toughness and is not damaged. Deadpool then rolls Diplomacy (remember that he's nuts and it would be something unpredictable), getting a 1. I'll say that makes Kory's Attitude towards him change from Unfrieldly to Hostile and she'll attack him instead of Red Hood (Ironically, that's what Deadpool wanted).
The first Robot gets up from prone as a move action. That's all it can do, as it's Disabled.
The Second Robot flies up, which would normally provoke an attack of opportunity from Captain America for leaving his Threatened area, but he already used his up. It goes up 15 feet and attacks Captain America with a Blast. It gets 14 + 8 = 22 vs. Cap's 3 + 14 = 17. It hits, and the Cap rolls a 4 on Toughness. Hero Point to re-roll, this time getting 17 + 8 - 4 (from Bruised) = 21. The Robot's blast is Rank 8 and is set for non-lethal damage. Captain America failed by 2 and is Bruised a fifth time.
Starfire All-out/Power Attacks 3/3, dealing non-lethal damage, getting 9 + 10 + 3 -3 = 19 vs. Deadpool's 6 + 12 = 18. Deadpool rolls Toughness, getting 13 + 8 = 21. He's Stunned and Bruised.
Red Hood starts to crawl away, making a Stealth check to avoid being noticed while she's pounding on Deadpool. 10 + 12 = 22 vs. Starfire's Notice check of 11 + 1 = 12.
Captain America throws his shield at the Robot #2. 5 + 11 = 16; the Robot has a Defense of +8. 19 + 8 = 27. Fail to hit.
Deadpool GM Fiats to overcome being Stunned. He Acrobatic Bluffs as move action, getting 8 + 14 - 5 = 17 vs. 7 + 8 = 15. He Power Attacks 2 unarmed, getting 19 + 11 - 2 = 28 vs. 10 + 4 - 3 = 11. He hits and Starfire rolls a Toughness of 13 + 12 = 25. She's unarmed. Deadpool heals a Bruised condition. Starfire has 3 Hero Points.
The First Robot fires its Blast at Captain America, getting 7 + 8 = 15 vs. 10 + 14 = 24. Fail to hit, and because it was Disabled, it is now dying for taking strenuous action, and because it is a Construct, it is destroyed.
The Second Robot continues to attack Captain America from the sky, getting 8 + 8 = 16 vs. 17 + 14 = 31. No hit.
Starfire All-out/Power Attacks 5/5, getting 16 + 10 + 5 - 5 = 26 vs. 7 + 12 = 21. Deadpool's hit, and rolls 4 + 8 = 12. He fails by 18 and is knocked out cold. She looks around and sees Red Hood sneaking away (he no longer has her fight with Deadpool as a discretion and thusly automatically loses his ability to hide). Starfire closes the distance between them.
Captain America Power Attacks 4 with his Shield again, getting 16 + 11 - 4 = 23 vs. 10 + 8 = 18. It's a hit, and the Robot has a Toughness save of +8 (5 Impervious). It gets 5 + 8 - 3 = 10. It fails by 18 and is completely destroyed.
Starfire attempts to Grapple Red Hood, provoking an Attack of Opportunity. I'll rule that those don't cause a Disabled character to switch to Dying. Red Hood gets 8 + 13 = 21 vs. 16 + 8 = 24. Starfire rolls to hit, getting 18 + 10 = 28 vs 10 + 13 + 4 (he's prone) = 27. Hit, and the two roll contested Grapple checks. Starfire: 14 + 10 + 10 = 34; Red Hood: 4 + 13 + 3 = 20. Starfire wins, and chooses to pin Red Hood.
Red Hood is pinned.
Captain America tries to use Diplomacy to reason with her, getting 18 + 15 = 33. Kory uses her Taint to ignore Captain America's words. Starfire now has 4 Ranks of Taint. Captain America gets a 3rd Hero Point for reasoning with Starfire for the bad guy's life.
Starfire's Drawback activates has to roll to a Will save (DC 14) or attack Captain America for interfering (Note that her Taint Level is a penalty for her Wisdom score, reducing it by 4). She gets 7 + 4 = 11.
Starfire drops Red Hood and uses her Line Blast against Captain America. The Cap is so no expecting that and is considered flatfooted, meaning he gets no Reflex Save to half it. He rolls Toughness, getting 3; Hero Point to re-roll, getting 18 + 8 - 5 = 20. He's Bruised a Sixth time. Captain America has 2 Hero Points. Starfire has 6 Ranks of Taint; one gained by using her Blast and one for attacking Captain America unproved.
Captain America attacks with his shield from a distance, getting 4 + 11 = 15 vs. 6 + 8 = 14. A hit. Starfire rolls a Toughness of 18 + 12 = 30. No damage (Damn, she's doing better than even Bane!).
Starfire Feints as a move action, getting 18 + 14 - 5 = 27 vs. Captain America's 3 + 11 = 14. She Power Attacks 5 with her Starbolt, getting 10 + 10 - 5 = 15 vs. the Cap's 5 + 5 = 10. He rolls Toughness, getting 11. Hero Point to re-roll. 19 + 6 - 6 = 19. He fails by 11 and is Staggered and Stunned. Captain America has 1 Hero Point now.
Captain America is Stunned and unable to go.
Starfire sends another Starbolt at Captain America, All-out/Power Attacking 2/2. 9 + 10 + 2 - 2 = 19 vs. 18 + 5 + 4 (he's Prone) = 27. A miss.
Captain America rolls an Acrobatics check to get up as a free action, getting 16 + 16 = 32. He's up, and throws his shield at Starfire. He rolls 7 + 13 = 20 vs. 11 + 8 - 2 = 17. A hit. Starfire gets 9 + 12 = 21. She fails by 3 and is Bruised (her first damage condition this entire fight!).
Starfire Charges and All-out/Power Attacks 4/3 unarmed, getting 18 + 10 + 4 + 2 - 3 = 31 vs Cap's 6 + 13 = 19. A hit, and Captain America rolls 6 on Toughness. Her Point to re-roll. 19 + 8 - 6 = 21. He fails by 7 and is Bruised a seventh time and Stunned. Captain America has 0 Hero Points.
The Cap is Stunned and unable to go.
Starfire All-out/Power Attacks 5/5. 18 + 10 + 5 - 5 = 28 vs. 5 + 5 = 10. A hit, and the Cap's Toughness is 9 + 6 - 7 = 8. He is so very Knocked out.
Captain America: Unconscious, 7 Bruised, 3 Injured, Staggered, 0 Hero Points
Red Hood: 7 Bruised, 2 Injured, Staggered, Disabled, Broken Arm
Starfire: 1 Bruised, 6 Ranks of Taint, 3 Hero Points
Steel Robots: Both Destroyed
Man, wrathful Starfire is scary! I don't think this has been the most one-sided fight the Foxverse has seen yet! Even thought it seems that the dice where favoring her, she took Red Hood, Deadpool, and Captain America right after each other, and came out with only one Bruised condition! That is just awesome.
