make a D&D character modeled on a comic book character
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:49:40 AM »
I don’t know a helluvalot about D&D but I’m interested in it and obv I’m interested in comic characters. Now I know something like this probably already exists but I’d like to see you do this if you have the skills/know how. You can fudge things. Say which skills come in at which levels. Can you one class, multi-class any D&D or Pathfinder sources, whatever race background you feel works etc—feel free to go beyond comic characters too. Movies, cartoons, books, it’s all up for grabs.

I know many here probably won’t be any more able to do this than me, but if you can, feel free to do as many as you want. The more the better.

Also feel free to put in requests.

For example, could someone make Shaman from Alpha Flight?

Batman would be a Monk/Artificer dual class, with an Alchemy specialization.

Iron Man would be an Artificer: https://media.wizards.com/2016/dnd/downloads/1_UA_Artificer_20170109.pdf with a Gunsmith specialization. Maybe one or two levels of Warlord.

Joker would be an Artificer with an Alchemy specialization and a Rogue dual class. Maybe with a level of Barbarian thrown in.

Bane is a straight up Barbarian, though he got a really lucky roll on his dice and was able to get a much higher Int than is typical for Barbarians.

Doctor Doom would be an epic level Artificer with some Warlord thrown in.

Iron Fist would be a Monk, of course.

Captain America would be a Warlord. https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Warlord_(5e_Class)

Movie Loki would be an Illusionist/Rogue dual class

Movie Aldrich Killian would be a Monk/Barbarian dual class pretending (via proxy) to be a Wizard.

Classic Thor would be a Paladin. Modern comics and movie Thor would be a Barbarian.

Green Lantern would have one or two levels of Warlord and one or two levels of Fighter, with a weapon that mimics Epic Wizard levels.

Sinestro would have a few levels of Warlord and a weapon that mimics Epic Wizard levels.

Mandarin would be a Monk/Barbarian dual classer with weapons that mimic low-level Wizard levels.

Wolverine would be a high level Barbarian with a few levels in all the other melee classes, and an Epic melee weapon.

Hulk would be an Epic Barbarian.

Wonder Woman would be an Epic Warlord with multiple Epic Weapons.

Flash and Quicksilver are essentially Rogues, at least in practice.

Wonder Woman and Thor would be Tank Mages Specializing in hand to hand weaponry.

I rolled a Barb with 17 Str and 18 Int and played him like a slightly insane Bane

I played a barbarian one time that thought he was Thor. It was set up in such a way that if I made a successful hit, the DM would occasionally make it that I missed my attack, but at the same time a lightning bolt just happened to strike a tree causing it to fall on the other person's head or something similar. And things like that would just reinforce my character's belief that he was the son of Odin.

Excellent list, Uhtceare

Some q’s

Loki seems more straight up Illusionist—no? One of the few that wouldn’t take too much fiddling with to build. Prob chose a racial hearitage to account for his stats.

Thor be it Berzerker or Paladin would need some Tempest connection—large part of the character. And he doesn’t rage out so much, so it’s tricky I think

Mandarin needs no Barbarian, I wouldn’t think—Id see him as several levels of Monk w/ a few levels of some kind of Wizard or Artificer, and then as you said, special items for Rings

Isn’t a berzerker a type of barbarian?

Yeah, I’m not super versed either. I just want to see Wyntyr do his Bane

You could easily make a Psylocke with the somewhat new Mystic class

I figured Psylocke would be a Psychic Warrior.
