Batgirl III wrote:The most powerful weapon in the DC Universe -- the Marvel Universe too, come to think of it -- is missing from both H&V Vol. 1 and 2, and I think this needs to be corrected. I speak not of the Green Lantern's ring or Thor's hammer. No, I talk of the legendary, the unstoppable, the real-fruit filling'd: Hostess Fruit Pie!


Lol.

I remember some Hostess villains in the Marvel Comics but don't know of any Hostess villains in the DCU. If there were some, they definitely need a profile!

I know Wonder Woman and Green Lantern each fought a Hostess villain. Crap, cracked.com did a whole bit on Hostess comic stuff, but I'm at work and can't get onto the site.

*UPDATE: cracked.com has actually done TWO features on Hostess villains, one for general craziness, and one focusing on Batman.

I thought of him while reading the Dream Powers profile. I was inspired to toss him at my players but need to design the stats myself. Fortunately the profile will help me fill in the blanks. What PL do you folks think he would be? I'm thinking 11 or 12.

Well, my DCU knowledge isn't what it should be, but...the following characters...villains really got left out. As a GM, I'm more interested in villains than heroes...but I have a few heroes on this list.

Vartoxx
Blackrock
Blackstarr
Black Mass
Crowbar
Eviless
Bio-man (or was it Bio-Lord? I'm not quite certain.)
The War Wheel
Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man
Breathtaker
Angleman
The Ghost
Punch & Jewelee
Multi-Man
Big Sir
The Gray Man
Freedom Beast/B'wana Beast
Nocturna
Anton Knight/Nightslayer
Pariah
Silent Knight
The Black Pirate
Captain Stingaree
Cinnamon
Batlash
Enemy Ace
Dr. Occult
Brainwave 1&2
Ultra, the Multi-Alien
Black Orchid
The Infinite Man
Nebula Man
Spirit King
Hazard

And that's all I can think of for the moment. I tried to to stick with characters no one else has mentioned.

Also the various owners of the Dial H dials.

Also, are we including any versions of the new 52 guys? or is that going to be its own supplement?

EDIT: Also the Monster Society of evil members: Captain Nazi, Ibac, King Kull, Oggar, Mr. Atom, and of course the deadly and terrible MR. BANJO!

Was kind of hoping that would be the answer.

Actually its kind of funny. They release the rpg, and its nothing like what the comics currently are.

Its like they're saying "Well, we messed up, so here's all our old set pieces, see if you can do better."

Originally this project was slated for the 75th anniversary of DC comics... an then the project was slowed down, DC moved offices/cities, then the reboot came along & DC Adventures was put on the back-burner as far as the DC side goes.

So now we have a game coming out for a now obsolete universe, one i miss greatly.

I'm sure it will be back sooner or later, from all accounts the rebootverse is tanking badly.

But we're getting off topic. Is there any chance we'll see more supplements with guys overlooked from the first two char books?

Also: The Seven enemies of man.

Which Seven?
The Earth-S Classic: Pride, Envy, Greed, Hatred, Laziness, Selfishness, and Injustice
The post-2000s: Pride, Envy, Greed, Anger, Sloth, Gluttony, and Lust

I'll note that the Reboot is the result of Pride, Envy, Greed, Hatred...
Over eleven hundred DCA/M&M Character builds at http://www.rcuhero.net
