And Finally,this is the Start of one of the most Ill used Teams in comics History.....The original Exiles!

Group Backstory:
This group was founded and led by Dr. Rachel Deming, and introduced Ghoul (one of Ultraforce's main members) and Amber Hunt to the Ultraverse. Much of the plot revolved around a fatal "Theta Virus", the treatment of which gave the characters their superhuman powers. Unfortunately, Dr. Deming assumed that people with powers are automatically superheroes, and their lack of training, cohesion, and leadership led to disaster. Aside from Deming (who suffered many fractures), Ghoul (who was already more or less a zombie, and thus later rose from his grave), Deadeye (that survived the tidal wave, later leaving the team) and Hunt, the other members of the team were Catapult, Mustang, Tinsel, and Trax. Mastodon was introduced in the series, but never joined the team.

Enemies:
Malcolm Kort-The only one the series ever got a chance to use,this "Lex Luthor- wannabe" tried to use the Teta Virus Infectees as Super-Soldiers fot his Company,Visionary Productions than actually get them cured like Demming tried...

Team Roster:
Catapult (Kevin Albers) – Had the ability to absorb inertia and turn it into super strength.
Deadeye (Frank Hayes) – Incredible accuracy with ranged weapons.
Dr. Rachel Deming – Cured the others of the Theta Virus and put them together as a team when the cure gave them superpowers.
Ghoul (Jonathan Martin) – Appearance of a corpse. Could reform body after it was damaged, talk to the dead, and sense when a person was near death.
Amber Hunt – Could manipulate heat and flames, as well as fly.
Mustang (Roderick Hartley) – Could generate electricity.
Tinsel (Melissa Scott) – Blinded by cure so she had to wear a special visor to see. Could generate light for various effects.
Trax (Judd Shepard) – Could sense danger. Could track others by their bio-signature.

Notes:

I really liked how this group was wrote up (for all the 5 issues they did),I was especially a fan of Mustang...

Oh, man...

A metal chick.
A cyborg guy with a huge gun.
Two guys with shoulder pads.
A guy with the "Jim Lee Head Mask".

Are we sure they're not called "Nineties Force" :)?

Ahhhhh, the Iron Age of comics. The era in which aping Rob Liefeld’s s****y artwork was held up as an industry standard.

Sorry for the Longer than anticipated delay.....Let's start with the "Dude" at the top of the list,shall we?
Image
CATAPULT(Kevin Alders) Occupation:Hero/Student(?) Group Affiliation:Exiles
STRENGTH 3/9 STAMINA 4 AGILITY 4 FIGHTING 7/11 DEXTERITY 0 INTELLIGENCE 2 AWARENESS 3 PRESENCE 2

Skills:
Acrobatics 2 (+6) Athletics 4 (+7) Close Combat (Unarmed) 4 (+11/+15) Technology 1 (+3) Expertise: Pop Culture 2(+4)

Advantages:
Accurate Attack, Defensive Throw, Equipment 3, Fast Grab, Improved Hold, Power Attack,

Powers:
"Mass Nulification"
Move Object 8 (Feats: Dynamic) (Extras: Perception Range, Area- 30ft. Burst) (Flaws: Limited to mass, diminishing the weight of what he touches by two orders of magnitude (a factor of 100)) (25) -- [29]

Equipment:
"Exo-Skeletal Armor"
Enhanced Strength 6 (12)
Protection 4 (4)

Complications:
Motivation (Thrills)-all kevin cares about apparently is having as much fun as he can before he dies....
Reputation(Irresponsible)-it was actually due to Catapult's own negligence that the "B" Team(Re:him&Mustang)lost Timothy Halloran in the first place,resulting in Tinsel's death...
Quirk(Theta Virus)-i have no idea if this would be Malibu's version of the Legacy Virus or not(Comments would definately be welcome on this one),so for right now i'm putting it under this as mostly it's a "Shared Power Origin" type of thing....

Backstory:
Catapult was about 18, and behaved like a teenager. In particular, he was unable to grasp the seriousness of a situation, and tended to treat everything like a game and a joke. He's basically “Wayne and Garth” put together (a reference to 1992 comedy classic Wayne’s World ) — a self-centred underachiever with no attention span and cultural values based on junk media consumption.
He’s not interested in anything that doesn’t directly affect him, doesn’t get that actions have consequences, and is mostly an Exile because he likes hurling large objects at stuff. Kevin pays next to no attention in school and is painfully ignorant.He doesn’t even read well.

Notes:
Part of me as a teenager alway's wanted to Punch This Idiot in the nose and try to make him realise that "this Wasn't a game,you little !@#$..."
Now,with a little age on me,i can understand why the writer's set him up that way:to create some group Tension.Still think he's an idiot,though...

Complications:
Secret(Former Military Asassin/Survivalist Soldier?)-It states in his background that he was part of some sort of Armed Forces,but never explained more.....
Reputation(Former Biker)-Hayes was a member in good standing of a Biker Gang,but left when the Theta Virus reared up...
Quirk(Theta Virus)-i have no idea if this would be Malibu's version of the Legacy Virus or not(Comments would definately be welcome on this one),so for right now i'm putting it under this as mostly it's a "Shared Power Origin" type of thing....

Backstory:
Hayes is a former outlaw biker. He reportedly has a “dark and shady past”, which seems to include service with some sort of armed force.
According to secondary sources he’s only 22 – though he certainly looked and felt older. He left his unpleasant home in his mid-teens, joining a bikers’ club. He had to leave the biking scene when the Theta virus started manifesting within him, but his time on the road gave him a surprising amount of life experience for his age.Deadeye was about the only Exile who knew what he was doing in a fight. For instance he had realistic expectations and appraisal of risk, knowing when to fold. He wasn’t a bad leader and was a good fighter, employing basic but proven tactics. Deadeye was all too aware that the rest of the Exiles were absolutely not fighter material, though.
According to secondary sources, Hayes loves being a nomad and the general biker scene. He has something of a wild streak, but by biker standards he’s on the calm and considerate side of things. He isn’t interested in starting pointless trouble.
Hayes isn’t much of a conversationalist and mostly speaks when it’s important. But he expects to be heard when he does speak, being large and well-armed.

Notes:
Now a lot of people are gonna wonder "Macyn,why didn't you give Deadeye the Leadership feat if he was a decent team Leader?" the awnser to that is very simple....He never had time to develope it much past "Suggestions" as the team died before he got the chance.
