Sorry for the delay. I just moved and the ordeal of that kinds took precedence.

I'm going to try and have some stuff up tonight. Mostly starting with the Freedom City people that haven't been done or have their own entries for 3rd ed.

Defenses: Dodge: +14 (DC: 24) Parry: +14 (DC: 24) Toughness: +6 (+2 flat-footed) Fortitude: +6 Will: +6

Abilities 62 + Skills 37 (96 ranks) + Advantages 32 + Powers 0 + Defenses 24 = 155

Build Notes: I wanted to start off with some FC characters that haven gotten much notice. Reading Silver Age I noted that some of the bigger names in the cannon were only present in a group shot and felt that was the wrong way to go. So with that idea in mind I went and updated the stats to 3rd and sought out art of the individual characters. not an easy task, but I found it fun so there's that.

Character Notes: Archer's origin and history is pretty much unchanged. Obviously this is a younger version of the character, back when he was just starting to come into his own as Bowman's sidekick Arrow.

Bowman III
Fletcher Beaumont II
Team Affiliation: Freedom League
PL: 9 (152pp)

Abilities: Str: 2 Sta: 2 Agl: 6 Dex: 8 Ftg: 6 Int: 1 Awe: 3 Pre: 4

Skills: Acrobatics 8 (+14), Athletics 8 (+10), Close Attack – unarmed 3 (+9), Deception 8 (+12), Expertise - history 4 (+5), Expertise - streetwise 8 (+9), Insight 8 (+11), Intimidate 6 (+10), Investigate 4 (+5), Perception 9 (+12), Range Attack – bow 2 (+15), Stealth 8 (+14), Vehicles 4 (+12)

Advantages: Defensive Attack, Defensive Roll: 4, Equipment: 4, Evasion: 2, Improved Aim, Improved Critical – bow: 2, Instant Up, Precise Shot, Quick Draw, Ranged Combat: 5, Seize Initiative, Taunt, Ultimate Aim

Equipment: [20ep]

• Flare Arrows [12ep]
o Standard Arrow: [1ep]
o Rapid Fire Arrows: +4 damage, multiattack [1ep]
o Boxing Glove Arrow: [1ep]

Unarmed: +9 (+2 Damage; DC: 17)
Bow: +15 (+4-varries Damage; DC: 19)

Defenses: Dodge: +14 (DC: 24) Parry: +14 (DC: 24) Toughness: +6 (+2 flat-footed) Fortitude: +6 Will: +6

Complications:
• Alcoholism: Fletcher is a recovering alcoholic and constantly fights the urge to have a drink.

Abilities 64 + Skills 40 (80 ranks) + Advantages 25 + Powers 0 + Defenses 23 = 152

Build Notes: Here's FC's Green Arrow homage. He's fairly straight forward. I included the Alcoholism as it's an integral part of the character. I don't plan on including many Complications that are not build/rule related (Kryptonite Vulnerability vs Relationship, etc).

Character Notes: Bowman II is a former Arrow who fell into the Speedy trap. He dried out and tried his hand at heroing again, even taking on an Arrow of his own. But he slipped back into the bottle, alienated his sidekick and finally retired from Heroics for good during the Silver Age. He has taken a teaching position with the Claremont Academy, hoping he can steer the future heroes away from the pitfallls he succumbed to.

Halogen - deceased
Margret “Maggie” Burroughs

Skills: Expertise - physical sciences 6 (+9), Expertise - technician 8 (+9), Expertise - technology 6 (+9), Insight 4 (+5), Perception 4 (+5),

Advantages: Attractive, Improved Initiative, Precise Shot, Ranged Combat: 4

Powers:
Plasma Form: [95pp]
• Plasma Blast: Blast: 12 [24]
• Flight: 12 [24]

Abilities 36 + Skills 14 (28 ranks) + Advantages 7 + Powers 95 + Defenses 23 = 175

Build Notes: Here's Halogen, one of the most common tropes - the flying blaster. She has some defense in her insubstantial, but her powers are typically one note.

Character Notes: Halogen was part of the new Freedom League (JLA Detroit anyone?). She served well with the team until the Sons of Sobek incident. She perished along with some of her fellow teammates.

Really not much of a write up on her in the book.

Lady Liberty - retired
Donna Mason
Team Affiliation: Freedom League
PL: 10 (170pp)

Abilities: Str: 10 Sta: 2 Agl: 3 Dex: 4 Ftg: 8 Int: 1 Awe: 3 Pre: 4

Skills: Close Attack – unarmed 2 (+10), Expertise - civics 6 (+7), Expertise - current events 6 (+7), Expertise - federal agent 8 (+11), Expertise - secretary 8 (+11), Expertise - streetwise 4 (+5), Insight 9 (+12), Perception 7 (+10), Persuasion 8 (+12), Ranged Attack – light control 6 (+10)

Advantages: Contacts, Defensive Attack, Great Endurance, Teamwork

Abilities 52 + Skills 32 (64 ranks) + Advantages 4 + Powers 60 + Defenses 22 = 170

Build Notes: the Second Lady Liberty (fourth is you count the two from the civil war, or would that be third? Sigh, comics). Donna's powers are in flux a lot during this time. She's at a very low eb during the silver age so shes not as powerful as the current LL.

Character Notes: Donna's survived WWII but the continued graying of society has taken it's toll on her. After a while she fades away from the heroing scene and even from the memories of her allies. (Donna Troy anyone?)

Story Ideas: A cool one shot would be a bunch of the retired heroes coming together and trying to remember/find out "Who is Donna [Troy] Mason".

Utility Belt: [19ep]

Abilities 72 + Skills 48 (96 ranks) + Advantages 49 + Powers 0 + Defenses 24 = 193

Build Notes: The Silver Age Raven, I really like the throw back to the Neal Adams' Batman with this build. the classic masked adventurer. He's no slouch in the detective department either. Good on teams but awesome on his own. He's got the biggest amount of villains in Freedom's Most Wanted. It shows they love this character and wanted him to be a major factor.

Character Notes: Raven at his peak was able to hang with the rest of the Freedom League and be a valued contributor. He also had his fair share of solo missions.

(consider the pic a place holder as I'm working on finding another)

Mary Minstrel
Mary Vaughn
Group Affiliations: Freedom League
PL: 10 (115pp)

Abilities: Str: 0 Sta: 2 Agi: 3 Ftg: 5 Dex: 2 Int: 1 Awe: 1 Pre: 4

Advantages: Attractive, Defensive Roll: 3, Improved Initiative

Powers:
Sonic Scream: [21pp]
• Blast: 9 [18]
o Damage: 9 (Extra: burst Area [+1])
o Nauseate: Affliction: 9 (Fort; Dazed/Stunned/Incapacitated; Extras: Ranged [+1])
o Stun: Affliction: 9 (Fortitude; Dazed/Stunned/Incapacitated; Extras: Range [+1])

Offense:
Initiative: +7
Unarmed: +5 (+0 Damage, DC: 15)
Scream: +9 (+9 Damage; DC: 24)

Build Notes: Again a one note (see what I did there?) character. Not a whole lot of nuance with this one.

Character Notes: The Black Canary homage, Mary here is just kinda background in the adventures. There's a little mention of her busting some muggers (Guess Raven was dealing with another case that night), but little of anything else. I believe she died before the Sons of Sobek took out most of the FL, long before the Omega invasion.

The Scarab - deceased
Alexander Rhodes
Team Affiliation: Freedom League
PL: 10 (224pp)

Abilities: Str: 1 Sta: 1 Agl: 2 Dex: 3 Ftg: 2 Int: 3 Awe: 6 Pre: 2

Skills: Deception 6 (+8), Expertise - arcane lore 6 (+9), Expertise - behavioral science 8 (+11), Expertise - business 8 (+11), Expertise - current events 6 (+9), Expertise - financier 8 (+14), Expertise - history 12 (+15), Expertise - theology and philosophy 8 (+11), Insight 8 (+14), Intimidate 5 (+7), Perception 6 (+9), Persuasion 8 (+10), Ranged Attack – mental powers 3 (+9), Sleight of Hand 4 (+6)

Advantages: Beginner’s Luck, Benefit: 4 (wealth), Close Combat: 4, Connected, Dodge Roll: 2, Jack of All Trades, Ranged Combat: 3, Trance

Powers:
Mental Powers:
• Comprehend: 2 (languages) [4pp]
• Flight: 3 [6pp]
• Senses: 1 (mental awareness) [1pp]
• Force Field: Protection: 6 (Extra: Sustained [+0]) [6pp]
• Telekinesis: Move Object: 11 (Extra: Damaging [+1]) [33pp]

Offense:
Initiative: +2
Unarmed: +6 (+1 Damage; DC: 16)
Telekinesis: +9 (+11 Damage; DC: 26)

Abilities 40 + Skills 48 (96 ranks) + Advantages 17 + Powers 91 + Defenses 28 = 224

Character Notes: Here's a neat little gimmick, the character that reincarnates after death. It's only done on a handful of characters in comic history but it's a nice way of getting a reboot going. Scarab here is the SilverAge incarnation taking the Martian Manhunter/Dr Fate position among the FL. He's definitely a senior statesman in the group and his presence has weight. He perished, along with some of his teammates, during the Sons of Sobek incident. While he hasn't been seen since (I blame SHADOW), he is available in the future Freedom League.
