Just got the Champions supplement covering the master villains. Lots of good stuff, and I even love the new look on Mechanon. Anyways gonna cover that now.
Champions Villains 2
Augury: Connie Smith was a housewife stuck in an abusive relationship when her time manipulating powers were awoken by a possible future self. Determined to use her powers for good, she became the heroine Augury, and a member of the hero group the Northern Guard. After she received visions of the teams existence leading to the destruction of Canada, the team disbanded and Connie had a nervous breakdown. She eventually received visions of a superhuman who needed her help, so she teamed up with the arch Criminal Borealis (Described in the Canada entry from the first thread.) While she does serve Borealis, the true target she seeks to aid is...
The Landsman: A creation of Teleios the Perfect Man. The Landsman is an eight foot tall genetically engineered man who Teleios abandoned in the wilderness to see if a blank slate could develop and grow on its own in the wilderness. The Landsman became a conduit for the land, the mystic heart of Canada, who imbued him with a mind and will of his own, as well as geokinetic powers. Borealis tracked down the super man and recruited him. In combat Landsman summons Earth to surround him, turning him into a massive stone giant powerful enough to Fight Novendecim to a standstill, Landsman ranks as one of the most powerful beings on Earth.
The Destroyers: The Super powered minions of Doctor Destroyer, the Destroyers were first formed by Doctor Destroyer to fight his greatest enemies, the Atom Family. They have since battled other hero groups.
In addition to Gigaton and Rakshasa, the team includes many members, including:
-The Bronze Brigand: A Foe to Rustbelt, The Bronze Brigand is a metal skinned brawler who can warp metal.
-Fourplay: A woman who can assume the form of four different elementals.
-Hammerhead: A super strong aquatic villain cloned by Destroyer from the DNA of a Mexican supervillain named Breakwater.
-Thoughtcrime: Another member of the infamous Medina family with potent psychic powers.
-Falchion: Thomas Falkirk was ignored all his life: By his family, by his employers, all because he was a low level meta who generates a psi field that prevented people from noticing him. Recruited by Thoughtcrime, Falchion was trained as a killer and learned to harness his powers all while Thoughtcrime molded him into a remorseless killer. Falchion is a master swordsman in addition to his powers.
-Meteor: Ricky Murdock was a punk kid from Florida when he was struck in the chest by an Omlevex meteor. Unable to be removed, the meteor shard became fused into his chest, granting Ricky Enhanced strength, durability, and super speed.
-Spectra: Diana Tremain was a scientist working in the field of Zero Point energy, hoping to harness it as a power source. Syndrome, not about to let someone else master "His" secrets, sabotaged the project, causing it to explode and, predictably, mutate Diana, giving her the power to transform into a being of energy and warping her mind. Imprisoned in an AEGIS hospital, she was busted out by Doctor Destroyer and became one of his lieutenants.
-Tarantula: Rick Rivenbark is the twin brother of Allison Rivenbark, AKA Arsenic, one of Miami's few active super heroes. Always a petty crook to his sisters good ways, when Rick developed metaman powers he became a super villain. Rick can alter his, and other peoples, orientation of Gravity. He can use it on himself to walk up sheer surfaces or on the ceiling, or on others to dizzy or trip them up. One day he made the mistake of robbing a company that was a front for Doctor Destroyer, and was given a choice: Serve or die. He's been serving destroyer ever since.
Kigatilik: An ancient God of cold and the darker, more unforgiving aspects of the frozen North. Kigatilik exists to bring slow freezing death to all. A foe to all those who would provide warmth and aid, the so called "Slayer of Shamans" Is in particular a foe to super heroes, and is a menace to all the super heroes of Canada.
Kinematik: One of the new heads of the Metahuman supremacy movement following the fall of the red King, Kinematik actually hails from the same parallel Earth as Dauntless and Relentless. Determined to see the advancement of metakind at the expense of so called "Normies", Kinematik has already attracted numerous supervillains to his side, including the villains Blindside and Overdrive. Kinematik has the power to manipulate momentium and Inertia, and has fine enough control he can use it in a variety of ways. Needless to say, He's number one on Amon's hit list, and vise versa.
Fossil: The son of Mexican Migrant workers, Raimundo Alvarez was recruited by a traveling preacher when he noticed his ability to heal. In truth, Raimundo was a Ossokinetic, someone with the power to manipulate bone with his mind. One night a plant from the Church of Seven Thunders condemned Raimundo as a metaman and nearly had him lynched till Kinematik stepped in and saved him. As a result, Raimundo, now Fossil, is Kinematik's most loyal ally. In addition to healing, Fossil can animate skeletons, cause crippiling injuries, and grow armor and claws from his own bones.
Mechana: the so called "Bride of Mechanon", Mechana was an unsuccessful attempt by Mechanon to build a new Centurian Machine loyal to him. Generally a weaker version of the mad machine, "she" is still a loyal lieutenant and often leads his mechanized minions.
Subedar: Another creation of Mechanon. Subedar was designed after observing a battle between Xiao and one of his killer robots piqued Mechanon's interest in regards to bladed weaponry, creating the ultimate knife fighting robot.
Victrian Walker: Originally meant to be a new model for Mechanon's form, it was quickly scrapped since it lacked manipulators and was very top heavy. Mechanon built one as a minion and never bothered making anymore. The Victrian Walker is basically a mobile weapons platform, armed to the teeth with weaponry. It can basically obliterate anything Mechanon or one of his lieutenants aims it at.
Doctor Phillipe Moreau: The grandson of the original Moreau, Phillipe, like his cousin Etienne, took up their grandfathers diabolical experiments. His first successful experiment (funded by PHANTOM) ended up creating the hero Dr. Silverback. Later creations would be more loyal. Phillipe eventually turned to using his Beast Men to commit crimes to fund his research, becoming one of Europes most infamous masterminds. He also does work for PHANTOM to create super soldiers and monsters.
Professor Paradigm: Phileas Burcato was a genius Mathemetician who is convinced that there is something "Wrong" with reality. What he is unsure, so he was determined to find out. Half a decade later and after acquiring some reality altering power armor (powered by fragments of the now destroyed cosmic cube, hey, Talos had to do SOMETHING with it), and a gang of like minded minions, Paradigm is now determined to "fix" whatever is wrong with reality, and possibly kill us all doing it. Among his "Paradigm Pirates" include villains Tesseract and the Avant Guard.
Displacer: Billy Harding is a metaman with the ability to merge our dimension with part of other dimensions, creating overlaying topical effects (for example, he can alter weather, terrain, or even fill rooms with noxious gas or deadly lava). Sheltered by his fearful family most of his life, he was discovered and recruited by Paradigm, and became one of his most loyal followers.
The Shadow Destroyer: the Shadow Destroyer is the James Harmon IV of Multifarian Earth, the Parallel Earth where Past, present and future exist as one which was created when River Song initially refused to kill the Doctor at lake Silencio. In this insane and fractured "Timeline" (if it can even be called that), Harmon was a dark mystic who was rescued from his doomed universe by the Shadow beyond time itself, given a mystical equivalent of Doctor Destroyers armor, he briefly impersonated the master villain on Earth for a time, until the Real Destroyer returned and, with help from the Champions, ousted the imposter. Shadow Destroyer and his allies are still at large.
Corundum:Shadow Destroyers chief bodyguard, Corundum is a powerful stone golem made in the shape of a beautiful woman.
Oubliette: Another golem created by Destroyer, Oubliette is a being of living shadow made to be the ultimate assassin.
Karkaradon: The Lemurians of the Multifarian Earth, the Karkaradon are a race of Shark Men who served Shadow Destroyer. When the Multifarian earth was undone, Shadow Destroyer managed to save a handful of them to continue serving as his minions. They are currently mingling with the deep ones, and menacing the Atlanteans as they rebuild their society under the seas.
Shadow Colossus: Shadow Destroyer's most powerful creation, the Shadow Colossus is a 15 foot tall golem made of crystal and charged with Qliphotic energies, which is can release as a devastating blast.
Skarn the Shaper: A powerful and insane dark lord, Skarn was once three seperate wizards who ruled over their home realm equally. When two factions of the triumverate began to war among themselves. the third cast a spell binding them together into a single being of massive power and insanity. Thus Skarn was born. Skarn merges any realm he conquers into the Congeries, and constantly warps and shifts the realm according to his bizarre aesthetics and idea of perfection. Skarn actually means well, but is utterly insane and unpredictable. He is also oddly honorable and loves sport, and spared Earth 409 After Divinos beat him in Arm wrestling. Time will tell if he leaves Earth in peace though.
Arthon: Skarn's eldest son, Arthon is a master sorcerer, but lacks his father's tremendous strength. He is an arrogant tyrant and is always scheming to increase his power.
Torvost: Skarn's second son has his physical strength but not is magic, The Congeries greatest warrior and party animal, he is actually an old friend to both Ymir and Dimensional Pirate Fandango.
Brell: Skarn's youngest and weakest child, Brell is a master shapeshifter. She knows she can't compete with her siblings, so she spends her times out among the people of the Congeries, trying to help them cope with whatever madness her father has unleashed that day. As a result, she is much beloved by the people of the Congeries. She is a former lover of Fandango from his pirate days.
Slun: the so called "Most evil Man in Russia", Yaromir Blokhin was studying for Ministry in St. Petersburg when his psychic powers emerged, warping his mind. Patterning himself after an Archbiship, Slun has used his powers to blackmail, mind control, and intimidate himself to the top of the Russian Underworld. He has attempted to enslave Troll several times to be his servant, but has yet to be successful.
Franklin Stone: The CEO of ACI ( Advanced Concept Industries) Franklin Stone was always a ruthless corporate raider, which led him to get into bed with SHADOW as a silent partner and acting as their silent partner. Stone was old friends with Kenneth Kane and is also a member of PHANTOMS highest society.
Doctor Yin Wu: One of the Iron Khan's court sorcerors, Yin Wu summoned the army of mythical creatures which aided in conquering the region of China that would one day become the Khanate, and created the Pill of Immortality which made him immortal. Today Yin Wu is a high ranking member of the Black Hand, along with his four sons.
The Four sons of the Dragon: Yin Wu's Sons believe they are the children of Yin Wu and a being from the Imageria. In truth they are four Homunculi created with the aide of Doctor Azoth (who was a student of Yin Wu and an old friend of). They are all loyal to Yin Wu, and a deadly fighting unit.
-Copper Spear: The eldest and most noble of the four sons, Copper Spear wields an enchanted Spear with deadly ability.
-Golden Axe: The Big guy of the team, Golden Axe is a brawler with two magic axes and a pet tiger. He is often looked down upon by the others for his perceived stupidity (He's not really dumb, he just likes fighting), and his sentimentality towards his siblings and his pet.
-Iron Whirlwind: A cold arrogant psychopath. Iron Whirlwind delights in questioning his brothers orders and tried to undermine him whenever he can get away with it. He wields a pair of enchanted swords.
-Silver Hand: The most evil of the brothers, Yin Wu tried to make him stronger than the other brothers, but ended up leaving him with only one working hand as a result. To compensate, Yin Wu made him a new hand made of silver, mystically enchanted to drain his victims life force with a touch.
