Building Ebon (from static shock)

Post by MagusRogue » Sun Jul 11, 2004 9:50 am

I was wondering, how would you go about creating a character like Ebon from static shock? If you don't know who he is, he's a tall mutant whose basically a living shadow, basicvally is all black with no mouth or nose you can see and glowing eyes. he's still phyical, however, and can be attacked, but he can thin himself out at will into a true shadow. He can also stretch and contort himself to long arms or huge fists or the like, wrap around and grapple people with ease and crush them, use shadows to make himself super-strong, and create shadow-gates to wherever he wants. He's also been known to create vacuums in his shadow-gates, sucking people into them, often giving them a one-way trip to the earth's crust or outer space (ebon doesn't play nice).

he's got quite a few powers, and some (like his version of elasticity and teleport) are a bit weird. how would you do him?
AAAAaaaaaaannnnnnnndddddddd this rant's done.

Eibon has basically got Elasticity (with Protection), some Super-Strength, and Teleportation with Portal and Extended Teleport. I'd tend to call his warp attacks extra effort power stunts (using Villain Points), since he doesn't do them very often.
