Something different...

Strength: $2 Spider-Man
Speed: $3 Blur
Skill: $10 Karate Kid

I don’t know where I’d peg this character. Legit super-speed & strength with the combat prowess of KK would be monstrous.

Riv...have you considered $1 options for some of the other categories?

Knights of the Old Republic 2 lol. I have never played through as a female character, and I discovered it’s backwards compatible with XBone. Soooo, yeah, playing through for the 5th or 6th time haha. Just started, so I’m on the Telos space station at the moment...

They don’t have anything in their arsenal that can put him down for keeps. And they will need something like that, because he is just going to keep coming until he kills them all.

Another build...going for more of a top-tier character...

Strength: $5 Hercules
Speed: $2 Triathalon
Blast: $2 Bio-Electric Blast
Skill: $5 Shang-Chi
Misc: $1 Intuitive Inventiveness

My thought is that top-tier strength and A-list skill, coupled w/ 3x peak human speed is a very potent combo. Reminiscent of old-school Wonder Woman IMO. Bio blasts are a good offensive option/distraction, and I figure I can enhance them, my speed or give myself some method of travel with an invention.

$3 Luke Cage
$3 Blur
$3 Starfire
$2 Punisher
$4 Telekinesis

Cage’s strength and durability is more than adequate, and TK gives me enhanced durability (as well as pseudo-flight). While TK has the abilith to attack from a distance, Starfire’s starbolts or whatever they’re called are a damn sight more potent. I’m not sure how fast Blur actually is, but faster than 3x peak (Triathalon) is pretty damn good. Punisher is a solid C+ to B level fighter, so that will work for me.

Definitely more of an “all-around” build.

Drizzt absolutely destroys Lestat. Vampires are pretty low on the totem pole for him, at this point. He’s fighting Great Demons (Marilith, the demon from which all marilith are named) one-on-one and barely breaking a sweat.

You can name whatever frou-frou version of Lestat you want; Drizzt wrecks him.

Liquid’s hypochondria is really starting to affect not only his quality of life, but also his pocketbook.

Team Forever

Elite Top Tier: The Emperor of Mankind (Warhammer 40K)
- Fucking RIDICULOUS "psyker" (mind-magic reality warping shit). A staggering intellect, possessing incredible scientific prowess and unparalleled cunning, his psychic presence can be felt from virtually any point in the galaxy and quite literally serves as the focal point for the galactic navigation of the entire Imperium of mankind. As a Perpetual (re: immortal and will be re-born if he's somehow killed) he has been alive for 20,000 years or so, pulling strings and influencing mankind until it was time to exert his will and take control of Terra (Earth). Enacting the Great Crusade to find his lost "sons", The Primarchs, and reunite the scattered remnants of mankind across the stars, he is the single most powerful "mortal" to have ever lived.

Top Tier: The Immortal (Image)
- The basic "brick" package, but tacked on with an incredible regeneration/healing factor and longevity, The Immortal is a hero that has been a part of Earth's history for as long as recorded history has existed (discovered North America, is/was Abraham Lincoln, etc.). He's a part of the world's past, present and future, fighting the good fight and all of that jazz.

Upper Mid Tier: Alucard (Castlevania)
- The son of Dracula and the mortal woman Maria, Adrian Fahrenheit Tepes aka Alucard, is an immortal (or at least, extremely slow-aging) half vampire. Possessed of a great amount of arcane knowledge and sharing many of the abilities of his father, Alucard is a fearsome and powerful warrior against the powers of the supernatural and evil.

Mid Tier: Norman (Mighty Max)
- Immortal warrior who's exploits are responsible for many of the Earthly mythical tales (Samson, Hercules, Thor, etc.), he is the sworn protector of "The Cap Bearer". An accomplished warrior, brave and fearless...unless it involves spiders!

Street: 'The Immortal' Hulk Hogan (WWE)
- He's the greatest that's ever done it, Mean Gene. He pressed Andre 'The Giant' overhead and slammed him to the canvas pinning him for the 1...2...3. With the training, the prayers and the vitamins, he's damn-near a force of nature, dude. His 24" pythons, the largest arms in the universe, will run wild over anybody! WHATCHAGONNADO, BROTHER!?!?!?


I'll take The Immortal's powerset. Pretty hard to fuck up anything by using any of his powers, I'll just allow the Emperor to point me in the direction of anything that needs to be punched by me.

You're on Hammy's turf, that's why his jowls are jiggling.

Showcase of the Immortals / Re: Matt Cappotelli dead
« on: July 12, 2018, 10:46:47 PM »
no kidding. I had an uncle who was a smoker who contracted lung cancer about ten years ago or so. He recovered and is still alive to this day, but during his remission period, his wife...who never smoked a day in her life....contracted lung cancer and died.
He totally sold her soul in exchange for a prolonged life. The clock's ticking on his accidental death in the next few years...

Robocop, easy. He took an insane amount of damage in the fight against Kane in #2 (plunge off of OCP tower, underground explosion, anti-tank fire, etc.). Jason can't even begin to deal that kind of damage.

Team "Just Here to Make the 'Hero' Look Good While We Are/Wear Green" (that's a 2-fer)

Elite Top Tier: Martian Manhunter (DC Comics)
- Want to know how powerful a bad guy is in DC? Have him job out Martian Manhunter. That way, we know he/she/it is dangerous... but not too dangerous for Superman to beat by punching.

Top Tier: Piccolo (DBZ)
- Literally the only reason he's still around is so that the latest threat looks good enough to fight (and then get beat up by) Goku. That's all he's done since... forever. Yep...

Upper Mid Tier: Dragonzord (piloted by The Green Ranger)
- The worst part is how much cooler the Dragonzord is compared to the Megazord. But guess what? He's still playing 2nd fiddle to The Megazord.

Mid-tier: The Green Ranger (Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers)
- So much promise, squandered because the Red Ranger is always the fucking leader, even while we ALL know Tommy >>> Jason. Whatever.

Street Level: Luigi (Super Mario Bros.)
- The EPITOME of "2nd banana", Luigi's exploits pale in comparison to his older, shorter, double-named brother, Mario. Fighting ghosts with a vacuum? FOH with that bullshit, you overly-tall goof.

I'd take Martian Manhunter as my avatar. At least I'd DO something with his powers. It's too bad we can't link images anymore; I'd found pictures and a couple of gifs of each character getting his ass kicked.

Ollie’s probably bedded more, and the quality of their respective conquests would be about even (Batgirl, Starfire & raped by Shiva?? vs. Black Canary, Shiva & Manitou Raven’s wife), so that’s GA’s only winning category. Nightwing beats him every other way possible.

I always have difficulties picking non-comic stuff
Comics are always my go-to because I don’t have to think as hard about each role, since they’re what I know best AND I wouldn’t have to explain my picks too much. Case in point: I started to bounce around a team of “mimics”; Taskmaster, Exiles Mimic, Nico Minoru, folks like that, but realized they’re all comics-related. Came up with something better, anyway.

Elite: Thor (Marvel)

Top: Rand al’Thor (Wheel of Time)

Upper Mid: Revan (Knights of the Old Republic; Light Side, Scoundrel/Weapon Master; Female) (Star Wars)

Mid: Link (The Legend of Zelda)

Street: Drizzt Do’Urden (Forgotten Realms)

Going for a bit of a “warrior-mage” vibe. Each is a more than capable martial combatant, and each possesses powers and abilities, whether they be innate or through a magical item, that “twists” the laws of physics to their bidding. I also think this group would work well together, with Rand (most likely) leading the way. I admit Drizzt is pushing the limits of “street level”, so if need be I can/will swap him for someone else.
