Shockwave is one of those villains like Titanothere, she doesn't show up often but when she does, she has a major impact. Whether its showing off for news crews, or challenging heroes, or leaving behind serious collateral damage she always makes sure everyone is in for a show. Shes smart and talented but tends to lack a bit of subtly which is what has gotten her caught on more then one occasion, but what the heck sensory overload is a blast and the louder the bag the better.

Helen Barnes was the daughter of Arthur Barnes a major player on the west coast crime scene right up until Helen decided to attempt a coup to replace him. Old Arthur though was no fool and was ready for her. Not willing to kill her outright he had her subjected to one of the labrynths DNAescent processes as punishment, a procedure that had a .002% survival rate.

Helen ahs always been a bit lucky and that day was no exception Escaping her captors in a thunderbolt of lightning that destroyed the facility Helen hid out for six months as she got her powers under control and then proceeded to systematically hunt down the men resposible for the experiment and pain she was subjected to as well as the ones who betrayed her attempted coup to her father. Her father narrowly escaped her wrath hiding behind his money and joining Viper prior to their failed Invasion.

Moving to the east coast Shockwave as helen took to calling herself wracked up a laundry list of crimes and damage before she barely escaped the Champions in New York. Figuring that what was good for the goose Helen recurited a number of like minded indviuals into a group the media coined the Nasty Boys. the name stuck and the Boys went on a tear that ended up in a brtual fight with the champions that put a couple of their members in the hospital.

Still the Champions were victorious and Shockwave was captured and convicnted of multiple crimes to several life sentences. The rest of the Nasty Boys escaped before they could be captured and now they seek a way to free their boss. Shockwave is patient though and now has a new scheme in mind. One thats bigger and more spectacular then before.

Robert "Bob" Johns was a nobody who had about as much of a chance of rising about his menial mechanic job as he did of winning the nobel prize for science. What Bob did have was a penchant for getting into fights wherever and whenever he could. Being big and strong meant he could take most guys and let him indulge his anger a bit here and there.

This is what brought him to the attention of VIPER who was looking for a few good test subjects--err men-- to help them with an experiment. Bob said yes no sweat, why not after all the money was good and he was a tough guy not one of those other pansies who was screaming in agony. Nah Bob didn't scream--much-- But what Bob did do was survive the process which killed ten of the other 12 guys--he never did find out what happened to them, nor did he care really.

Bob or Bonecrusher as he was named did a few jobs for VIPER before going independent when the local nest he was par tof was raided by the Los Angeles based Avengers. Bob took a beating at the hands of Onyx the teams powerhouse but gave a good accounting of himself in the process. Bob managed to slip away in the aftermath and was met by a woman with incredible powers.

Shockwave Introduced herself by lighting him up like a Christmas tree when he threatened her, then offered him a place in her crew if he behaved. Having few other viable options Bob agreed and Bonecrusher became the Nasty Boys resident muscle.

Teresa Holland PHD was a star scientist at Aegis with a problem. She was continuously passed up for promotion or leadership on various projects by her male colleagues. The last straw was when a male colleague that she considered inferior intellectually was promoted over her for leadership of her department. No counseling could convince her that it was her own arrogance and hostility that had cost her the chance.

It was this state that left her a prime candidate for recruitment by Shockwave. She devised a Laser based combat system based on designs she worked on at Aegis's SHIELD research division. Donning the suit and the name Doctor Photon she began a career as a supervillain as part of Shockwaves Nasty Boys.

========================================================

Smoke aka Kimiko Takaichi was the scion of one of Japans most ancient Ninja Clans. Born with the ability to obscure herself and to create blinding fogs Kimiko rapidly climbed the ranks of success until she decided she'd wanted to run the clan. Expecting her Father to leap at prospect given her successes she made her pitch only to be laughed at by the elders who were inclined to choose her younger brother then a woman evne one as successful as Kimiko had been.

Enraged Kimiko challenged her brother to a battle for the leadership of the clan despite his protests that he didn't want the position and thought she should have gotten it instead. But Kimiko was too blinded by her own ambition to listen and cut her brother down though he gave her a scar to remember before he died.

Kimiko didn't stop there, though she came back later that night and over the course of a single night murdered almost her entire clan. Only a few lone agents and distant family members survived and they swore vengeance. with her reputation in tatters and no one willing to touch her she fled for the US with assassins baying at her heels.

It was in America that she ran into Shockwave. the villainess was in the middle of planning a heist when Kimiko crashed into her hideout with a dozen angry ninja in pursuit. Wounded and exhausted Kimiko would surely have perished but Shockwave had other plans. She lit the killers up like a Tokyo billboard and laughed while she did it.

Nursing Kimiko back to health Shockwave recruited the grateful assassin into her ranks where Smoke as she became known became one of the Super Villainesses most loyal and deadly killers.

========================================================
Abilities 60 + Skills 26 + Advantages 9 + Powers 85 + Combat 12 = Total 192pp
========================================================

Seaman First Class Pamela Neimic received her powers from an experiment by the Navy in Conjunction with Aegis. The goal was to research the viability of Super Soldier SEALs who could breath underwater and swim further and faster. Several Volunteers unfortunately were killed by the experiment, and AEGIS was in the process of shutting it down when a last round of the experiment succeeded with Pamela. At first she suffered no ill effects and the only visible change was a slight greenish tint to her hair. Shortly after a few days though her skin changed and her hair became a dark green as she found herself able to change into liquid nd control water.

Exhilerated and a little frightened Pamela at first worked with the scientists and Naval personel to experiemnt with and test her powers. But after a week of seemingly endless testing Pamela became a little stir crazy --possibly due to some alteration of her brains cheimstry-- she started thinkig the scientists were plotting to keep her under lock and key forever or worse.

Agent Phil coulson tried to reassure her that wasnt the case but she became more and more suspicious and a week later after hearing about containment procedures--talk about another experiment entirely-- she escaped via a faucet and into the ocean. There she became a bit of an urban legend, sinking a naval patrol bot, then a week later a Whaling ship, and a week after that towing a boat with two honeymooners to shore.

She would continue this way for a year before the Navy closed in on her it was then that Shockwave found her and the two managed to disable the Navy vessels and escape. Shockwave knew just how to manipulate her and brought her into the fold of the Nasty Boys.

Pamela while not a true criminal does what Shockwave tells her mostly because shes terrifed of the Navy or Aegis catching her which theyve come close to on more then one occasion.

Agent Coulson hasnt stopped looking for her as he feesl responsible for her transformation due to not stopping the experiments fast enough and then failing to assure her of her safety. He hopes he can rescue her and possibly restore her to her humanity or at least help her become a hero. Only time will tell.

========================================================

Born a mutant with blue hair, Mitch Bourg could have excelled in Athletics if hed chosen but a mean streak and a cocky attitude found him running numbers and eventually breaking legs for a local Loanshark. Eventually he managed to get recognized by the Maggia and was acting as a super powered enforcer for the the families right up until Shockwave wrecked them entirely. S

Still he didn't end up in jail because Shockwave blasted the transport he was in and offered him a job, getting the impression that his other choice was being lit up like times square on new years he gladly accepted and hasn't looked back since.

A short sighted thug Mitch spends money as fast as he runs and always needs more leading him to take excessive risks on occasion. Only the fact that Shockwave usually always succeeds has kept him from turning on her, that and the fact that she promised to flahs fry him if he ever did, a threat shes more then capable of following through on has kept him loyal.

Still hes a weasel and Shcokwave knows it so she keeps a wary eye on him and doesn't trust him for a minute.

Desiring a life of luxury and living beyond his means, Scarlotti became a professional criminal. Using a costume and a sophisticated metal whip of his own design, he became Blacklash, a weapons designer, special agent, and assassin for the Maggia a criminal cartle. On behalf of the Maggia, Blacklash fought the hero Grasshopper when Lash attempted to kidnap Catherine Deveraux.

After being beaten and arrested Scarlotti was freed thanks to the Maggias Influence. He once more tried to break into Oracles Los Angeles campus but this time ran afoul of the Hero Shock who beat him after a prolonged fight.

Scarlotti would once more be freed from prison by his legal team with a new assignment, this time he would be hired to kill the hero known as the Vigilante when the latter interfered in the Maggias plans once to often. Scarlotti would be beaten by Vigilante, though and once more end up in prison,

This would be the last straw for the Maggia and Scarlotti would be left to rot, save that the MAggia was wiped out by Shockwave in revenge for the experimentation done on her. Shockwave had an appreciation for Blacklashes style and recruited him by rescuing him on his transfer to prison. Scarlottis been a loyal member of the Nasty Boys ever since.

Complications
Motivation: Responsibility. Gladius truly believes that his power and origin are a gift that he must use to help others.
Stepping Up: Gladius is a clone of the Centurion. He's not as powerful, but he wears the colors and works to be worthy of the mantle one day. He will step up despite the risk.
Relationship: Gladius and Bankshot have a relationship (they're married) that has not become common knowledge.
Rival - Gravity Master. The guy's not all bad so it's not an "enemy complication" but Gravity Master envies that Gladius got the girl (Bank Shot) and has powers naturally that he worked to build.

Design Notes
* This was originally an excuse to play the 90s style Superboy's powerset if not the personality. As such, I tweaked the DCA build. His powers are telekinetic at their base, but developed into gravitic in nature.
* Being a legacy of Centurion and not Superman, I was quite at ease to remove heat vision and the super-sensory array.
* His Enhanced Strength is the focus of his Gravity Powers - it's a personal gravitational field allowing him to lift 100 tons. Arguably having the full fledged gravikinesis (telekinesis) is a moot point and a waste of a point. However, I see him mostly using his powers to appear to be a paragon more than telekinetic.
* There may be too much in the array. Personally, I see it mostly as descriptors on variant damage applications, but leave to your examination.
* Power Stunt section is to have some stunts on standby. Some things that he can do, but that require extra effort.

Background
Gaius Aurelius, Ryan Connors, Orion, Gladius... All the same person, and yet none of them should exist in our world. Just ask Dr. Mayhem.

Desperate to restore his timeline and his identity, the villain known as Dr Mayhem hatched a plot to find the Gladius of his world. His latest device sought out parallel worlds that most resembled the one that he remembered, the one where he belonged. In the process, about a dozen young heroes appeared with uniforms strikingly similar to that of the long deceased hero Centurion. Each was puzzled by the world that they had arrived on, but none more so than Gaius Aurelius. Of all the duplicates, he was the only to not use the familiar gold white and blue of his alleged father.

Freedom City rolled its eyes at all these newcomers – after all the presence of the Alpha Centurion had dashed their hopes of ever seeing their beloved hero again and made them suspicious of all who might wear his colors.

So it was that when the crisis of duplicates was resolved, Gaius faded into the background and managed to remain on Earth Prime. Taking the name Ryan Connors he enrolled at Claremont Academy, having a referral from Lady Liberty certainly helped his case.

Quiet and reserved, he remained in his black and gold uniform, his slightly different powerset drawing absolutely no attention to his potential origin. A few of the girls noted that he looked like a young Centurion, but he dismissed it. He even went so far as to dye his hair black.

He dedicated his free time to playing the guitar – something that he truly excelled at, perhaps due to his powers – and to reading and watching all things about Centurion.

The truth is, he wishes that Centurion was his father. Although this is closer to truth than outright falsehood, the fact of the matter is that the Centurion of Gaius’ world was anything but the benevolent hero of Earth Prime. Still, he was no villain, perhaps more akin to the Superman of the JLA animated episodes “A Better World.” He was Marcus Aurelius, and he called himself the Alpha Centurion*. And this was another reason why Ryan cringed at revealing his origins. Gaius was supposed to be next in line to take his father’s place as leader of the Myrmidons (his world’s equivalent to the Freedom League). He had been "grown" as one of the receptacles that could take on the mind and mantle of the Alpha Centurion in case of his death. A guarantee of immortality. A crown prince who would never assume the throne.

On this Earth, Gaius liked the new name - Ryan Connors - that Lady Liberty had given him, and Gaius Aurelius and all that he was began to fade into a distant memory and he treated it as a nightmare best forgotten. He even assumed the codename of Orion to distance himself a little more from his legacy.

Dr. Mayhem discovered the youth, and determined to prove exactly what Ryan wanted so desperately to believe – that he was no scion of Centurion and that was not worthy of the name. They clashed repeatedly, leaving Ryan shaken to the core on several occasions and losing his sense of self. It was one such encounter that actually finally determined once and for all who the young man was, is, and will be.

Ryan had developed friends outside of Claremont, and Mayhem discovered them. In a ruthless plan he attempted to destroy them one at a time in order to weed out the “False Gladius.” Orion appealed to the Alterni-Teens for help and his friends were rescued. In the ensuing confrontation with Mayhem, Orion’s uniform was shredded and the hero was very near total defeat at the hands of the madman. As Dauntless moved to help, Lady Liberty appeared and gently held him back. She told the team that this was Orion’s fight and there was far more than a loss at the hands of Mayhem at stake for the young man.

Mayhem’s final trap proved the end of Orion. But not in the way that he had intended. Thrown into a burning building, his friends could no longer stand by and watch. Despite Liberty’s plea, they subdued Mayhem, Dauntless and Magni Thorson attempted to destroy his Battlesuit. The others turned to help Orion, but in that second a rebirth happened. Mayhem held his own against the team, apparently having been toying with Orion until this point. Behind the battle, the building collapsed just as Orion exploded from the roof, holding the hands of the two people that the Alterni-Teens had had not been able to find. His protective powers extended over them he touched down next to Relentless, his costume barely hanging on to his battered body.

His face, strangely bereft of emotion, he turned to face Mayhem. As if sensing him behind them, the Teens moved aside. Orion’s hand clamped down on the armour, and the battlesuit flew apart in pieces. In shock, Mayhem was defeated while Orion returned to the Academy to recover from the battle. He was quiet for days, the only sounds coming from his room the riffs he would play on the guitar. He refused to talk to anyone, he refused to acknowledge or respond when addressed by name. He also refused to accept a replacement uniform.

Lady Liberty paid a visit to the Academy about a week later, a box under her arm. She nodded and smiled to all that greeted her, but proceeded to Ryan’s door. She opened it, not bothering to knock and the teen didn’t bother to look up. Putting the box down, she asked a simple question. “Who are you?” Startled, he acknowledged her by looking up. Answering her own question before he could say anything, she told him what she thought. “You are Ryan Connors. Who you were or what you think you were before arriving in Freedom City is irrelevant. A week ago, you showed us courage, strength, wisdom and compassion. You showed us that we can count on our friends and to ask for help when it is needed. You showed us what it means to be a hero. You may have been created to be something or someone in another reality. On this world, you are very much more than that. When you’re ready, open the box.”

Liberty left, not waiting for a reply, pausing to talk to the Alterni-Teens. As she prepared to return to Freedom Hall, the assembled students stopped talking one at a time and their gazes fell on the figure of Orion. The uniform he now wore was gold and blue with white highlights. The resemblance to Centurion’s costume was there, but it was not a copy. Liberty smiled and asked, “And, what is your answer?”

“I am Ryan Connors. I am Gladius.”

Complications :
Motivation : Responsibility. There are a LOT of over-powered idiots out there, and she is currently one of the few strong enough to effectively deal with them. And rescue folk endangered by said idiots.
“O, it is excellent To have a giant's strength, but it is tyrannous to use it like a giant.” ― William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
Thrills and Adventure ! : Best way to see foreign works of art is TO GO THERE, since some nations refuse to let their artwork leave the country (and due to sheer number of thieves and weirdos trying to steal mystical artifacts, such an opinion is quite understandable). Travels quite a bit; essentially, as often as she can.

Quirk : distrusts vigilantes and tomb raiders/graverobbers.
Relationship (family) : Even though they live on the opposite side of the country (natively from Osceola, FL), she keeps in contact as much as she can.
Responsibilities : between making replicas for museums, commissioned for sculptures or stonework, and being a first responder, Petra has more than a few demands of her time.
Weakness : vibratory attacks. Since her alternate form is crystalline, vibrations harm her a bit more than usual (considered Hindered vs all sonic/vibratory attacks).

Background :
Petra grew up in Osceola, Florida. A few miles away from Winter Park - home of the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Crealde School of Art. She was always fascinated by sculpture, so took as many courses about it as she could.
About ten years ago, she was in the Yucatan studying local sculpture within what geologists know as the Chixulub crater, and found some interesting stone to sculpt.

While carving it, her chisel slipped and she injured herself, getting some of the meteoric dust into her bloodstream (this stone had cryptic variations in hardness). Later found out that some of the dust were quasi-life crystals : complex chains of minerals that can perform limited organic catalysis. They became part of a symbiotic relationship with her cells - they could utilize background radiation to generate ATP without the need for oxygen or other electron acceptors. Meaning she didn't need to breathe anymore, and her metabolism worked differently - she got hungry, but much slower than she'd expect.

Months later she found out the quasi-life crystals granted other, more 'interesting' abilities - her physical strength increased, and she could sort of slip through earth and stone without disturbing it. Within a year, the last of the effects occurred - she could convert her own flesh into living stone. With a massive increase in weight, strength and toughness.

She was not the sort to fall into the 'starving artist' cliche - she knew that becoming famous and rich as an artist was a longshot, and so kept herself busy.

The best use of her free time (which she had some control over) was to become a First Responder. Once she got her powers, she started to specialize a bit more as an Extrication Specialist.

Once she heard that Bay City was being built, she figured there would be more job opportunities out there than back home, so she left to find her way out there.

But it seemed her super abilities were called upon more often than she'd like - apparently, super strength and incredible toughness are a VERY common powers for people to get. And for some peculiar reason, the only thing people think to do with them - is hit stuff.
Although she could fix and repair the damage done from super brawls and temper tantrums, she thought it would be better to stop the idiots BEFORE they make too big a mess.
ooc : thinking of either scrapping Quicksand, or replacing with something else. Like Bone Rattler : Area Effect 11, Recover with Fort; Vulnerable and Dazed, Stunned and Prone; Extra Condition+1, Limited Degree-1, Area+1, Limit : ground targets only -1
