Default [SUPERS] My Unofficial Handbook to the DC Universe

Inspired by this thread, I've decided to undertake a version of the DC Comics universe that matches my particular tastes as a player, GM, and as a comic book reader. These versions of DC heroes and villains won't be perfect representations of the heroes as they appear in the comics, movies, or tv shows—rather they will be “in spirit” re-interpretations. Sometimes I'll make changes “just because.”

My ultimate goal would be for this to be a tool by which players can adventure in a version of the DC Universe that is fun and feels right (to me).

Unlike t-brock1031's admirable work on the Marvel U, this is NOT going to be starting the DC heroes out early in their careers. My favorite official versions of the DCU are the “Timmverse” animated series and the period of the comics between Identity Crisis and Final Crisis. In my version of the DCU, Tim Drake is the current Robin and if Damian Wayne exists, Bruce doesn't know about him. Cassandra Cain is the current Batgirl and Barbara Gordon is Oracle.

Additionally, there have been two major waves of super-heroes in the DCU, the first wave included the Justice Society of America (made up of Alan Scott (Green Lantern), Jay Garrick (Flash), Wildcat, Sandman (Ted Knight), Hourman, Black Canary (Dinah Drake), etc...). They fought in WWII, but, thanks to a number of factors (time-travel, healing powers, etc...) they have aged at different rates and some are still in fighting condition (though a little gray around the edges). The second wave of heroes (including Batman, Superman, Barry Allen, Hal Jordan, Dinah Laurel Lance, etc...) has been active for slightly less than a decade.

On major change I'm making to the DCU is in power level. The heroes of my DCU will not be of the earth-shattering variety—I plan to keep my A-List super-heroes between 750-1250 points, and even the likes of Superman will remain below D-Scale (unless they pay an Unusual Background).

Additionally, I'll be avoiding Wild Card skills unless they're part of an explicit super-power. I know they are often the best way to recreate super-heroes—this is just a matter of personal preference.

Power Modifiers

Super (Meta Gene) (-10%). Your powers are derived from the mysterious Meta-Gene. You're subject to Anti-Powers (e.g. Static and Neutralize) and Rare Technological Countermeasures. In most cases where a lab accident or exposure to chemicals created a super-being, this is the real cause. This is by far the most common origin in the DCU.
Exemplars: Black Canary, Poison Ivy, Vandal Savage.

Super (Elemental) (-5%). Your power is derived from an extra-dimensional force that represents an elemental building block of the universe. The Speed Force and The Green are two prominent elemental forces. There are no Countermeasures, but you are susceptible to appropriate Anti-Powers and in many cases and opposing force (e.g. The Negative Speed Force).
Exemplars: The Flash, Swamp Thing.

Super (Alien) (-10%) You are susceptible to Anti-Powers and Countermeasures, but they're different Countermeasures (Light from a Red Sun, etc...).
Exemplars: Superman, Martian Manhunter.

Super (Lantern Corps) (-25%), you derive your power from a power ring. Susceptible to Anti-Powers and Countermeasures--also includes Costs Fatigue (-5%) and Pact (Varies, usually a Duty or Code of Honor) (-10%).
Exemplars: Green Lantern, Sinestro.

Trained (-0%) You earned this ability the hard way, through training and exercise. This replaces the need for any Unusual Training or Special Exercises Perks and should be reserved for abilities that would normally be allowed with such a perk.
Exemplars: Batman, Green Arrow.

Magic -10% There is no such thing as "Mana" in the DCU, however, magical abilities are susceptible to their own sets of Anti-Powers and (magical) Countermeasures. Includes both overt spell-casters and people empowered by magic.
Exemplars: Dr. Fate, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel.

Super-Science (-10) As described in GURPS Supers, this is just Super with equipment, including robots. Reserved for technology that grants real superpowers, gadgets that approximate real world technology require no power modifier.
Exemplars: Cyborg, Metallo, The Metal Men, Red Tornado.

Cosmic (+50%) As described in GURPS Powers.
Exemplars: Darksied, The Endless.

DCU Martial Arts Styles
Almost every martial arts style available in any GURPS supplement is available in the DCU, provided a sufficient explanation. Additionally there are several new styles available:

Dragon Kung Fu 7

This was the style invented by Richard Dragon, one of the greatest martial artists ever to walk the earth. This is the closest thing to an “Ultimate Style” in the DCU.

He has passed this style on to several other characters of the DCU, who may have passed it on to others. Notable students of Dragon Kung Fu include: The Question (Vic Sage), Lady Shiva, Batman, Connor Hawk, and The Question (Renee Montoya)--any of these are capable to teaching Dragon Kung Fu to others.

Skills:]Acrobatics, Auto-Hypnosis, Breath Control, Judo, Jumping, Karate
Techniques: Acrobatic Stand, Aggressive Parry, Arm Lock (Judo), Choke Hold, Counter Attack (Karate), Elbow Strike, Exotic Hand Strike, Disarm (Karate or Judo), Feint (Karate or Acrobatics), Hammer Fist, Jump Kick, Kicking, Knee Strike, Spinning Punch, Spinning Kick.

Trained by Batman 9

While wandering the earth turning himself into the perfect weapon against crime, Batman trained with many of the best martial artists in the world, including The Sensai, Richard Dragon, Lady Shiva, David Cain, and Wildcat.

He has synthesized that training, into the skills most useful for fighting crime on the streets in an urban area. This is the style that he teaches to all of his side kicks, as well as other heroes he deems worthy. Among his students past and present are Nightwing, Robin, Oracle, and Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance).

Skills: Acrobatics, Climbing, Judo, Jumping, Karate, Running, Stealth, Thrown Weapon (Shuriken).

Perks: Cloaked, Improvised Weapons (Karate), Shtick (varies, pretty much any), Style Adaptation (Any, but Dragon Kung Fu, Shurikenjutsu, and Taijutsu seem most common.), Technique Adaptation (Can Disarm with Shuriken).

Optional Skills: Broadsword, Cloak, Smallsword, Staff, Two-Handed Sword


Moo Gi Gong 8

In the real world, Moo Gi Gong is the weapon training included in Hwarang Do. In the DCU, this martial art grants competency in nearly every melee weapon available. Practitioners are very likely to be Weapon Masters.

Notable practitioners include Arsenal (Roy Harper) and Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance).

Skills: Axe/Mace; Broadsword, Flail; Staff; Smallsword, Two-Handed Sword and at least one of Jitte/Sai, Knife, Kusari, Polearm, Shortsword, Spear, Tonfa, and Two-Handed Axe/Mace.

Really excited to see where this leads. One note however, it'd be really helpful to include some formatting in your posts, similar to what tbrock has done with his posts, if you're going to be making a lot of them. For example putting titles or headings in bold. It simply makes the blocks of text much easier to read, certainly for me, and doesn't take much time.

The martial arts styles are a nice touch, and I like what you've done with them.

Trained (-0%), You earned this ability the hard way, through training and exercise. This replaces the need for any Unusual Training or Special Exercises Perks and should be reserved for abilities that would normally be allowed with such a perk.

Any I'm missing?
Magic comes to mind immediately. And Chaos Magic and Order Magic are specific opposed subtypes. Also Holy and Unholy.

And of course Cyborg has a tech power source. And some characters are elemental although that's an add-on.

Okay, I've made significant changes to my Power Modifiers all around. Tomorrow I'll upload several more characters.

Default Re: [SUPERS] My Unofficial Handbook to the DC Universe

I was actually wondering when someone would do a GURPS Who's Who in the DCU. :)

A few things that jumped out at me:

I'd give a bit more background than one or two sentences. I mean, it works for Batman, but for someone a bit more obscure like, for example, Holly Granger/Hawk or Atom Girl of the "threeboot" LSH, we might be left going, "so, who is this guy?"

I'm not sure I'd call Oracle simply "Somewhat" Reliable. If anything, she's the embodiment of Totally Reliable for the members of the Batman family.

Your power modifiers look about how I'd separate them. I like 'em. (Minor tidbit, it's "red sun" when dealing with how Kryptonians and Daxamites interact with stars; "Red Son" was the Soviet-raised Superman timeline.)
