Metamoon OOC and Characters

Please post your updated characters here. Also, is there anyone here who does NOT have a gmail account? I have a document I want to share with you that will help with the book keeping for the game, but it can only be shared with gmail accounts. (I basically reworked a significant portion of the 2nd Edition Campaign Planner into a spreadsheet format.) PM me with your gmail account if you have one.

Name: Heraclitus Height 2,5 mts
Skin: Pale Weight 170 kg
Hair: Black Shape Human
Eyes: Black Age: unknown

When the time came for the final hour of Earth, even the gods aligned with Earth's mightiest heroes, in the final showdown. Heraclitus left his pride and grudge against the Amazons and the man of steel aside and fought side by side to the last consequences. The bastard child of Heracles and Hypolita, Heraclitus was taken up by his father and taought the art of war. He held the same grudge against the amazons as his father. However, back to back he fought alongside the princess of the Amazons, Wonder Woman, until she was killed by the invading aliens, despite his efforts to intercept the killing shot. Enraged, Heraclitus wreak havoc on the assaulting aliens, until he was too brought to his knees, and was about to get slain when suddenly, everything changed around him, and he found himself in Themyscira. He had changed in the eyes of the amazons, he had proven that not all men were to be considered scum, when he valiantly fought alongside their princess. He pledged to be the Amazon's new protector, he might have not been able to save Daiana, but he would dedicate his immortal life to make sure nothing wrong happened to her people. Hercules spent time recuperating from his severe wounds in the pleasant shores of Themyscira, enjoying the strange breeze that now waved across the world. He wasn't sure what happened, only that whatever it was, it allowed him to survive and become a servant of justice and honour, although... for how long?

An Adventure, not a Hero: Though quick to defend what he loves, and he loves a great deal many things, the Shade is not a typical hero. He prefers to call himself an adventurer.

Reputation: The Shade fought on the wrong side of the law for a long time. Most heroes and law enforcement agents, particularly older ones, have a difficult time trusting him.

Love[Hope O'Dare]: Shade has fallen hopelessly in love with Hope, but she is uncertain, do to fear regarding her aging and his immortality.

Killer: If a person is evil, Shade has little concerns about killing them, however some heroes are quite against it.

Emotional Attachment: Shade is very attached to Opal City and goes to great lengths to keep it safe.

A Gentlemen and a Scholar: Shade is a gentlemen, has his own sense of honor, and cares a great deal about art and history.

Adopted Daughter("La Sangre" Isabella Swift): In 1954 Shade saved the life of a newborn baby from vampires, her family already killed, however the girl was already bitten. Shade raised her for many years, when she turned 15 she stopped aging. She now fights crime. Despite being a vampire she is a good person, she says she has a soul, and prays to god every day. Shade loves and protects her as if she was his own flesh and blood daughter.

Family[Cladecott]: The Shade rarely, if not at all, interacts with the Cladecott family, but for some odd reason has gone to great lengths to protect them.


When the armada arrived, the world panicked. Shade cared only about two things, protecting Opal City, and Hope O'Dare. However do to do that, he had to defend the whole earth. He joined forces with what remained of the heroes of the world and did his best to defend the world, however when it was clear that the would not win, and the crust of the world began to crack and rip in half, he abandoned the fight and returned to Hope O'Dare.

He scooped her, her family, the Cladecott family, and La Sangre and took them into the Shadowlands, the only place they would be safe.

They watched as the world died, Hope urged Shade to help the survivors, but he insisted if he didn't stay, the inhabitants of the Shadowlands would rip everyone else apart.

To their amazement two new figures arrived, and after few brief moments the earth was returned, albeit scarred and maimed. The Armadas were gone. Shade returned the O'Dares to earth to find it changed forever...

Motivation (Acceptance): Both to the public, as a new hero and to those who know his true nature, as a sample that not all White Martians are savage, power-mad and bloodthirsty.
Reputation: He is a member of the White Martians. Those who know of the White Martians consider them savage, power-mad and bloodthirsty.
Phobia: Afraid of flames.
Power Loss: Close to flames, his powers are reduced accordingly. The actual extend is up to the GM as it also greatly varies in the comic source.

Till'all was one of at least ten White Martian refugees who crash landed on Earth several years ago (due in large part to the machinations of the Green Martian, Cay'an). Like the others, Till'all believed that he was actually of the Green Martian race.
Till'all and his father, Mica'kel, were rescued from captivity by J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter. J'onzz provided them with a safe house at the abandoned Middleton Estates in Pennsylvania. Till'all was the youngest of the surviving group and was the least embittered by their trials. Till'all attempted to mingle with human society, but as his powers had yet to fully return to him, he accidentally allowed two humans to see his Green Martian form.
Shortly thereafter, Till'all's memories began to return to him and he reverted to his original White Martian appearance. When he learned about the accidental death of his father, Till'all went berserk, blaming J'onzz for his father's demise. After a brief struggle, J'onn managed to calm him down and pledged that he would help keep Till'all safe.
Till'all trained with his adopted uncle J'onn and later with his adopted cousin, Miss Martian. Being more introverted than her, he decided to not join a team or go public at all. Like J'onzz humble beginnings, he decided to act in secret, using his natural ability to become invisible. He tried to avoid the centers of Superhuman population and worked most often in the Southern Hemisphere. He later adopted a variety of superhuman identities, the best known being the Dreamtime Spirit in Australia.
When the big attack started and the Watchtower was destroyed, he decided to take then mantle of the Martian Manhunter to honor the man that helped him to find a new home. He assumed the guise J'onn used at the time they met first and tried his best to keep up.

I will be updating the build presently...

The blonde heroine struggled against her sisters who held her down as the Purple Ray passed over her injuries. They were severe and even the techno-mystical energy beam required several passes. All around them, the sounds of explosion and battle echoed.

Half delirious from the pain, itching to get back into the fray and help however she could, the bright sky suddenly gained an Emerald Hue. When she finally managed to get up from the table where she was being tended, the demi-goddess knew that it was simply too late. Still, she launched herself into the air to rejoin Superboy in the defense of her home but he was nowhere to be seen...

And then she looked up to see the Earth hanging in the sky and was bewildered...

With no sign of her friends, family or boyfriend the Amazon slowly sank to the grounds of Themiscyra. She collapsed to her knees, sobbing. When she was found by Phillipe, Cassandra vowed to find out what happened and to be better prepared if something like that ever happened again.

She didn't know why she had been spared when Conner, Diana, Donna and all the others weren't but she knew that she had to use that chance to help whoever else had survived...

:arrow: Wonder Girl in the New 52 is a character I decidedly do not like and thus as presented is Cassandra before Infinite Crisis.
:arrow: I have not finished with points yet, but this is a good place for the moment. I did not add crazy "Supergirl-style" attacks, instead adding to the current powerset.

Anthony "Tony" Anderson lived a fairly average life in a world inhabited by gods, aliens, magic and superhuman powers.
He was raised in Smallville on the family farm, played football in high school, dated a cheerleader (amongst others), and generally led an idyllic if uneventful life. His primary dream was to be a professional football player, but as school came to an end it became more and more apparent that he lacked the natural athleticism and talent that he'd need to make it to the big leagues.

This left him in a dilemma. While he had excelled in sports, he'd allowed his academics to slip and fall to levels that wouldn't allow for a meaningful college or university degree. He had multiple oppertunities for local careers in the trades, or failing that minimum wage careers.

But Tony didn't want to remain in Smallville, he didn't want to have a job he felt would be inconsequential, and he wanted to help people. Not just because it would be a meaningful way of spending his time, and thus an argument against people who told him he'd never amount to anything with his antics, but because he honestly wanted to help people.

His options seemed to be limited down to three options. The military was the obvious choice but Tony didn't have the temperament he thought would be needed for that career. Police was another one, but again he wasn't sure he could handle dealing with the worst parts of humanity on a daily basis. Firefighting, on the other hand, would play to his strengths. It required a high level of athleticism, the ability to work well in teams, an ability to think on one's feet, and an ability to work under stress.

Three years of part time jobs and necessary prerequisite training later Tony joined the Metropolis Fire Department. He excelled finding a good home and surrogate family in the fire department. In spite of the many strange and unusual calls that came with being in a large city populated with superheroes, he found the job rewarding and fulfilling, if sometimes a bit terrifying.

When the disaster hit Tony's department, and any other emergency response unit, was running flat out with anything they had available to put out fires, rescue the injured, and dig buried victims out from collapsed buildings. The only saving grace they had was that in spite of all the disaster that had happened they did still have access to power and water.

The fire department was runing flat out during and after the attack doing everything they could. They were fighting fires, helping people out of car wrecks, giving basic first aid until an ambulance could arrive, and trying to help dig survivors out of the rubble. Then, twenty minutes after the world had shifted disaster struck. They received a call about a house fire with the occupants believed to still be inside. During their entry into the building the floor collapsed beneath them, sending Tony and two others falling into a hidden basement.

Complication (Duty/Responsibility) - Tony is a member of the Metropolis Fire Department and one of their first responders for emergencies.

Complication (Weakness) - Tony's powers are unable to affect objects constructed of wood in any way.

Complication (Motivation: Acceptance) - Tony's parents, and some of his friends, all insisted he was wasting his future focusing on football. Tony's drive to find a job where he meaningfully impacted the lifes of people around him was driven by his desire to prove that he hadn't ruined his life by not achieving academic success.

Complication (Motivation: Doing Good) - Tony, on a base level, likes helping people.

Complication (Family) - Tony's family (and almost everybody he knew growing up) died when Smallville was destroyed, as with most of the planet. Like most of the survivors he hasn't had time to really come to grips with this loss.

Complication (Secret) - Tony doesn't know where the gauntlet came from, who owned the house, or even what happened to Alan Scott, who had a similar set of powers.
OOC: Banking about 42 points for future growth.

Rivalry - Aquaman: Aquaman and Tempest butted head many times in the past, even though they had similar priorities. Now that Aquaman has passed and become a legendary savior of the people, Tempest has conflicted emotions. He respects Aquaman and his sacrifice, but resents him for "abandoning" his people. He would definitely not like being compared to him.

Relationship- Dolphin: Was in a romantic relationship with Dolphin before the catastrophe, doesn't know if she survived or not.

Weakness: Like many Atlanteans, Tempest dehydrates when away from water for an extended period of time, becoming impaired, disabled, and finally incapacitated before his condition becomes life threatening. Immersion in water immediately removes all accumulated conditions.

Prejudice: Like many Atlanteans, Tempest has a less than positive view of surface worlders due to their abuse of the oceans and seemingly self-obsession with their own problems.

Totals: Abilities 78 + Powers 113 + Advantages 12 + Skills 27 + Defenses 31 = 261


Like his mentor, Aquaman, Garth was exiled from Atlantis as a child. He was banished for having purple eyes, which were considered a sign of genetic inferiority. Garth’s eye color was really an indication of his sorcerous potential. The son of the rulers of the Idyllists, a pacifistic Atlantean colony, Garth became Aquaman’s ward and sidekick, Aqualad. It was during this time that Aqualad met Tula, the young ward of the previous Atlantean king, and the two began a romantic relationship.
Estranged from his mentor in the wake of Tula’s death, Garth sought out the truth surrounding his origins. He trained with the immortal Atlantean sorcerer Atlan and unlocked his own mystical potential. Donning a new uniform based on the Idyllist flag, Garth adopted the name Tempest. His ongoing relationship with Aquaman has been stormy. Both have sought to protect Atlantis, but they have also come into conflict, namely when Aquaman’s lover Dolphin left him to be with Tempest.

Then came the invasion…

They were being pushed back toward Poseidonis. Slowly but surely they were losing ground. “Where the hell is Aquaman!” Tempest yells as he blasts another invader with a barrage of magical bolts. He of course knew that Aquaman had run off somewhere at request of the league. But that had seemed like forever ago and he hadn’t been heard from since. His kingdom was in danger, he needed to be here defending it. Not off running errands for the surface-worlders. Two large ships approach and Tempest push a current of water to crash them together. The resulting explosion seemed to shake the world. That wasn’t me, Tempest thought. All of a sudden the seas became violent and Tempest was thrown about. Never before had the sea been so turbulent that he was helpless against their current. Eventually the see settle and in the distance a shining green energy barrier could be seen and beyond that looked to be stars…although that was impossible. It wasn’t long till the seas became violent again and when they finally subsided for a second time the energy barrier was gone. Tempest decided to go topside to find out what had happened. When he breached the surface of the water he was greeted by an impossible sight, the Earth hanging above them. Crazy as it sounded he, along with the ocean, was on the moon. “Poseidonis,” he said with concern and he swam off to check if it had survived the move.

Relationship: Most of Hawkman's incarnations have had an ongoing romantic relationship with either Hawkgirl or Hawkwoman

Identity: Hawkman's multiple incarnations can occasionally complicate his life and confuse his allies. He may run into other versions of himself or run afoul of Thanagarian spies seeking to clandestinely remove him from action so they might themselves pose as Hawkman.

Prejudice: Even though he fought against the Thanagarians, a majority of people highly distrust Hawkman for being one of them.

Enemy: The Thanagarians

Cater Hall never would have dared to imagine such a move on the Thanagarians' part. Allying themselves with Darkseid seemed unreal, something that would only come out of a nightmare, and yet there they were, seeking to destroy his home.

There were too many of them to take on, even with the might of all the Earth's heroes combined, but he had to try. Experience had taught him that these beings could not be treated with, the only language that they understood was violence. And so he fought, as he had so many times before in the myriad lives he had lived, alongside his beloved Shiera, secretly praying that he would have the chance to hold her just one more time after all this madness.

But then, like some terrible retribution from God, the Earth began to break. Maybe, Carter had thought as he looked on, just maybe they would see each other on a different planet in a different life.

Having had cleared most of the invaders from the outskirts of the city, the husband and wife went to embrace one another for the final time… when an emerald barrier dropped down between them and he watched her fall away into the abyss.
Reset Hawkman to the original fatty 197 point build that is given in H&V vol.1 and added some stuff. Boosted his fighting skills and strength to make him PL 12 in combat, and then added what is essentially a Magneto helmet and a watered down (non-cannon?) Claw of Horus to manipulate gravity to a small degree.

Just realized the helmet... would it also block friendly telepathic contact? Checking flight speed shows MM at 13 and Hawkman at 7.
English isn't my native language. Have patience, please.

Just pointing out that you are much faster than Hawkman. You crossed almost 800 (1287 km) miles in 3 minutes. He could only fly 12 and a half miles (20 km) in three minutes.

I believe the rules as written would indicate that immunity means even the beneficial stuff won't work.
Though I think Hawkman has enough points to drop a 1 point feature to allow the communication aspect of telepathy, assuming the GM is okay with it.

I think he would have to buy the "Selective" feature. Selectively allowing the Martian Manhunter to communicate with him.

yes, he'd need to purchase "selective" on it.

Please check your gmail accounts. I'm sorry, but the form I sent you did not work the way I thought it was going to. Actually, it didn't seem to work at all. However, I just made my campaign planner available to each of you to be able to edit. If you would go to it and click on your character and fill in the appropriate information, I would appreciate it. This SHOULD be the last time I ask this. And feel free to look around the form for you own use some times.
