I'm slogging through various villains and supporting cast right now, and not really planning much for the later X-Men. Chuck will eventually get an entry, once I get around to doing the X-cast, but I don't expect too much. I might have Storm appearing alongside the Panther over in Wakanda, and Wolvie with the Flight up in Canada... or maybe something else. It's hard to say.

One thing I will confirm is that Emma Frost is once again a villain, and rather unrepentant at that.

Nor should they, generally speaking. He doesn't have any powers, as such, after all, he knows spells and is trained in ways of using his native abilities that others are not. What he can do is limited primarily by what he knows, like a gadgeteer with a room full of devices.

Something to keep in mind, too, is that the powerful magics available to humans in the MU are mostly derived from elder powers and ancient entities, good, evil, and alien. A normal man doesn't have enough personal energy to power the superspells, that's why Strange is always calling on the Vishanti or the like for power.

Which means that what he can do changes from time to time, based on things beyond mortal ken.

A suggestion about the Mutant Registration Act: I'd let it exist, cranked down to a nuisance level. That is, some people in the government (and similar things would be going on in other nations) would like to do something like that, but they aren't making much progress, they're fringers whos ometimes become a nuisance.

I suggest that because mutants and supers are in a different category than other minorities, their powers and abilities mean that they have the potential to be very useful/threatening in ways other minorities are not. So some sentiment along that line ought logically to exist, even if it isn't getting much traction, and it provides a hook for stories. Instead of the whole government being out to get you, it's a few officials acting illegally, or making themselves a nuisance from other directions.

OLYMPIAN GODS

The extradimensional beings who inhabit the realm known as Olympus claim their descent from Gaea, the entity who has infused her life force with that of Earth itself (see Gaea; Olympus). Olympus has many aspects which are similar to that of the Nine Worlds of Asgardian cosmology (see Asgard). Among these similarities is the fact that matter on Olympus is thrice as dense as that on Earth; this means that a person or object which originated on Olympus weighs three times as much under Earth's gravity. Despite this, Olympus's gravity is the same as Earth's; a mortal from Earth has no troubles with gravity or breathing while on Olympus. There are a number of regions on Earth where it is possible to travel to Olympus, but the best-known location is on the slopes of Mount Olympus in northern Greece. Because of this location, the Olympians were worshipped throughout ancient Greece.

The Olympian gods are superhumanly strong. Most are able to lift (press) around 25 tons; some, such as Hercules, Ares, and Zeus, are able to lift (press) much more (see Ares; Hercules; Zeus). The are immortal, not aging once they reach a certain point; the oldest still appear as if in their mid-30s, while some, such as Hebe, goddess of youth, Hermes, the messenger, and Eros, god of romance, appear much younger (see Hebe). In addition, most of the gods have unique abilities which relate to their portfolio; it is still debated whether the gods were worshipped for their abilities, or were granted abilities due to being worshipped as such.

According to ancient Greek mythology, Gaea gave birth through parthenogenesis to Ouranos, the primordial god of the sky. She then mated with Ouranos to produce the three Cyclopes, the three Hundred-Handed Giants, and the first generation of Titans. Ouranos confined the Cyclopes and Hundred-Handed to Tartarus, a region of the underworld (see Hades). Upset that six of her children were being treated with such callousness by their father, she encouraged Cronus, the oldest of the Titans, to overthrow Ouranos's rule and free his siblings. Cronus did so, reportedly castrating his father with a flint sickle, but then cast the Cyclopes and Hundred-Handed back into Tartarus. In rage, Gaea prophesized that one day one of his own children will overthrow him.

Cronus had six children with his sister-wife, Rhea. In order, they were Hades, Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Poseidon, and Zeus (see Hera; Poseidon). Cronus exiled the first five at birth to Tartarus (according to myth, he swallowed them whole). Zeus escaped this fate because Rhea substituted a stone swathed in rags for the infant Zeus, who was raised on Earth. Upon reaching adulthood, Zeus freed his siblings from Tartarus, as well as the Cyclopes and Hundred-Handed Giants. He then led a war which lasted ten years against the Titans, ultimately overthrowing them and banishing the majority of male Titans to Tartarus; the female Titans as well as the Titan Prometheus either stood with Zeus or did not interfere, and hence were spared from Tartarus.

As the main gods who fought in the war, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades decided to draw lots to divide the realms between them. Zeus drew the sky, Poseidon the sea, and Hades the underworld.

Many tales involving the gods are well-documented by mythographers. As Greek influence spread, so did the worship of the Olympians. Their worship spread primarily due to the empires forged by Alexander and later by Rome. This expansion brought the gods into conflict with the Egyptian, Babylonian, Hindi, and Norse gods, the latter of whom were worshipped by the Germanic and Teutonic people on Rome's northern frontier (see Asgardians). Poseidon, under his Roman name of Neptune, grew to be worshopped by the Atlanteans (see Atlanteans). Ultimately, the worship of the gods faded as Christianity and later Islam spread; Poseidon was allowed to retain his Atlantean worshippers. The worship of the Olympians gained a brief resurgence during the Renaissance, as study of the ancient classics became widespread.

Today, the Olympians appear to be content with simply watching and subtly interfering with mortal affairs. Some of the gods, such as Hercules and Hermes, have spent time on Earth learning mortal ways. Others only venture to Earth when the situation demands it. Because of the amount of information available about the Olympians, many neo-pagans have begun worshipping them; this pleases many of the gods, especially those who did not agree with Zeus's proclamation to let their worship fade.

Game-Mechanic Details:
Olympus has a native TL 4, raised over time from the original TL 1. Some of the gods, particularly Ares, Hercules, Hermes, and Hebe, have bought off the Low TL disadvantage.

HERCULES

Real Name: Herakles ("Hercules" is his Roman name).
Occupation: Adventurer, former shepherd, former indentured slave, former actor.
Identity: Publicly known, although the general public does not believe that Hercules is the same man from the myths.
Legal Status: Citizen of Mount Olympus, former citizen of the Kingdoms of Mycenae and Thebes (now part of Greece) with a criminal record (pardoned). Technically, he could claim to be a citizen of modern-day Greece by birth, but he prefers not to do so.
Other Aliases: God of Might, God of Heroes, Alcaeus (birth name), Paul Bunyan (alleged), Kevin Hunt (his television "stage name").
Place of Birth: Thebes, Boeotia, Greece.
Marital Status: Married.
Known Relatives: Zeus (father), Alcmene (mother, deceased), Amphitryon (step-father, deceased), Iphicles (mortal half-brother, deceased), Iolaus (mortal nephew, deceased) Megara (first wife, deceased), Omphale (second wife, deceased), Deianira (third wife, deceased), Hebe (half-sister, current wife), Nyssa Savakis (mortal half-sister), Hera (stepmother), Perseus (maternal great-grandfather, half-brother, deceased), Andromeda (maternal great-grandmother, deceased), Eurystheus (cousin, deceased), Hyllus (son by Deianira, deceased), Telephus (son by Auge, deceased), Lamos (son by Omphale, deceased), Macaria (daughter by Deianira, deceased), Manto (daughter, mother unrevealed, but probably Deianira, deceased), Tlepolemus (son by Astyocheia, deceased), Alexiares, Anicetus (sons by Hebe), children by Megara (names unrevealed, deceased). For more details on his extended family tree, which includes all of the major gods and many of the ancient Greek heroes, consult Hesiod's Theogeny and other works.
Group Affiliation: Gods of Olympus, former member of the Argonauts..
Base of Operations: Mobile; formerly Los Angeles, California.
History: Hercules's history prior to his ascension to godhood is well-documented.

At some point after the worship of the ancient Greco-Roman gods had faded, after the rise of Christianity, Hercules grew bored just watching humanity. From time to time, he traveled to Earth to engage in various adventures. During the 1800s, tales of his exploits in the American Old West grew; he's been said to have inspired the tales of legendary frontiersman Paul Bunyan.

Recently, Herc decided to try to find new adventures on Earth. He started by crashing a fabulous Hollywood party dressed in his ancient Greek attire; he was immediately noticed by a talent scout. For several years, he wound up playing himself on television, first in made-for-TV movies and later in a regular series based on them. After that, he tried his hand at playing a starship captain in a science fiction series, which he claims to have found refreshingly invigorating. However, scripted adventures began to wear on him, and he left Hollywood seeking further adventures.

He found it in thwarting the machinations of his ancient nemesis, his stepmother Hera, who was causing trouble for yet another of Herc's many half-siblings, his half-sister Nyssa Savakis (see Hera; Savakis, Nyssa). Nyssa at the time was having trouble adjusting to the fact that she was the daughter of Zeus, and having her four thousand years older brother show up almost sent her around the bend (see Zeus).

Herc is currently splitting his time between protecting Nyssa from Hera's many plots and training her in the use of the lightning powers she has inherited from their father.
Height: 6' 5".
Weight: 750 lbs.
Eyes: Brown.
Hair: Brown.
Strength Level: Hercules possesses superhuman strength enabling him to lift (press) in excess of 100 tons.
Known Superhuman Powers: In addition to his prodigious strength, Hercules possesses the typical attributes of an Olympian god. He is extremely durable, immune to terrestrial diseases, and immortal. He has not aged since achieving godhood. His body is now three times as dense as it was when he was mortal.
Other Abilities: Hercules is a skilled warrior and strategist. He is skilled in all armed and unarmed martial arts of the ancient Greeks and Romans, as well as his large two-handed club.
Weapons: Hercules's favorite weapon is the large two-handed orichalcum club forged for him by Hephaestus.

Hercules's Club
Hercules's Club is an oversized weapon forged from orichalcum by Hephaestus.

TL: 1^
Weapon: Hercules's Orichalcum Club
Damage: 6d+6 cr
Reach: 1, 2*
Parry: 12U
Cost: $3,600
Weight: 24
ST: 20‡
Notes: [1, 2, 3]

Notes:
[1] Fine Quality
[2] Made for an SM +1 character (as per Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers, p. 26).
[3] Made of Orichalcum; won't break, and non-orichalcum weapons have +2 to odds of breakage when parrying it.

Design Notes:
1. I had to do some research on Herc to make sure I got his family tree correct. As can be expected, when dealing with Greek mythology (and Greek gods in particular), the family tree can resemble a double-helix DNA strand. I specifically included Perseus in the list of relatives due to the fact that he's both an ancestor and half-brother to Herc, which is pretty much a unique relationship even among the ancient Greek heroes.
2. Herc's use of the "Kevin Hunt" alias and his television career is an homage to Kevin Sorbo, who played Herc in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys on television and then went on to play Dylan Hunt in Gene Roddenberry's Starship Andromeda.
3. Herc's club is built as a Maul, scaled up using details found in Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers. (Regrettably, I lack Low-Tech Companion II, which gives the proper rules for scaling up weapons.) Technically, I probably should have listed it as Signature Gear, but should it be broken or stolen Herc can always commission a new one from Hephaestus, and it likely won't be for free.

They look good, as far as the character sheets go. Only thing I'd change, really, is making some of Luke's "Biological" power mods into "Passive Biological" mods (-5% as they lack the "Costs 1FP to activate" part), particularly the DR and IT:DR, and maybe give Cage (and maybe Jewel) a bit more DR.

However, the character sheets don't include much in the way of biographies. (Even Captain_Captain's Hyperion entry had a bit if bio to it, if not done in the OHOTMUDE style I prefer to use in this thread.) Do you also plan to do Cage's long-time partner Danny Rand/Iron Fist and/or some of his other allies (e.g. Colleen Wing and Misty Knight)? (Jewel happens to be a recent character, retconned into continuity by the writers, but that doesn't mean she can't exist from the start in the Reboot.) I'm also curious to see what you have in mind for a "rogues gallery" for them. If I was to use them, I'd certainly try to bring in Danny's half-sister Miranda as an antagonist somehow.

The stats look good, but the Super Effort enhancement for ST isn't cost effective until you're up to at least +8/50. So for Cage, you would be cheaper with

+7 ST (-10% Size, -10% Super) [56]
+23 Striking ST (-10% Size, -10% Super, -5% Costs 1 Fatigue) [86]
+23 Lifting ST (-10% Size, -10% Super, -5% Costs 1 Fatigue) [52]

Total: 194, considerably less than 252

A little more for Jessica Jones, but still cheaper than Super Effort.

Also, my assumption is that Cage is SM +1. If so, his base ST would cost 63 (-10% for Size), not 70.

Maybe even consider dropping Hit Points to base original ST (17 for Cage, 10 for Jessica) and upping Damage Reduction but that's more of a stylistic choice. I personally like the idea of base Hit Points reflecting mass and superhuman durability represented by Injury Tolerance (Damage Reduction)

Also, is there any overall guideline to how these stats are chosen? The guide is very impressive and clearly took a lot of work but a lot of DX type stats seem low - DX 15 and Combat skills around 18 seem low for Captain America.
