So you are running a Superhero game but you need some ideas on what to play. Superheroes are, in my opinion, the best characters to design for an RPG. They are fun, quirky and tend to be very powerful. Cool themes always drive a rocking Superhero character. Now I want to see what ODAM's creativity will generate with these 101 Superhero character ideas. These can be used as NPCs or ideas for PCs. I'll start.
1. Mistress Shade
Mistress Shade controls a powerful mysterious energy, granting her the ability to fire powerful beams from her eyes. She can also create energized weapons of various shapes from her hands. The energy field can wrap itself around her, making her hard to detect, providing protection and also allowing her to slip through walls and solids.
He controls the element of stone and marble, able to create sculptures or fling chunks of material. He can also animate stone, creating stone gargoyle-like creatures. Incredibly tough, heâ€™s also extremely strong and powerful.
3. Grim Stalker
The Grim Stalker can turn into a black, oily smoke shape. He usually quickly turns into this form whenever being presented with a physical attack, then reverts back to his normal form to counter. He can also teleport, creating a blast of smoke as he departs and arrives. Regeneration is also present, as the Grim Stalker has recovered from powerful wounds. The Grim Stalker always carries his powerful weapon, a machine gun studded with a variety of gadgets. The most bizarre power of the Grim Stalker, however, is his ability to freeze people into a blackened, smoke-like substance with a touch of his hand.
4. Shinito, The Blind Ninja
A swift and deadly ninja, Shinito possess strange hearing that lets him operate in a radar-like fashion, painting the picture of everything around him. His reflexes and reactions are also extremely fast. He commands a powerful array of martial arts and his sword, a deadly blade, has killed many a foe.
Scamp has sonic control, allowing him to deafening people with blaring sound and creating blasts.
Hero has the ability to absorb an objectâ€™s property, as long as itâ€™s solid. Steel, iron, concrete or stone are all various forms. He usually always carries his trusty crowbar, allowing him to turn to iron if needs be in a split second.
Snowflake has the power of cold and ice. She carries a powerful wand that is able to freeze anything with a single touch, inherited from a long line of female ice queens.
8. Man Tank
A hero in the service of the Allies, the Man Tank is a superstrong meta-human able to lift hundreds of tons. In addition, he wears a heavily armored suit equipped with a 155mm cannon and a .50 caliber machine gun. As he's the only one strong enough to wear the suit, designed by the brightest American minds, Man Tank is an unstoppable force on the battlefield against the evil Axis.
Granted the power of combustion, Phoenix can cause anything to burst into flames, even himself. Using the heat, Phoenix can fly, create walls of flames or cause objects to explode into fire.
Maddog, also known as Jules Chamberlain, is an ex-biker with a weird trait, transforming into a deadly werewolf-type creature. In this form, as Maddog, Julesâ€™ strength is multiplied along with his quickness and toughness. His rabid bite can cause people to become sick and faint and his powerful sharp claws can rip through most anything. Maddogâ€™s howl can also cripple hearing senses. Maddog possess all the acute senses of a dog; ultra-hearing, scent, and the ability to see in the dark. In Julesâ€™ normal form, he is abnormally tough and strong.
