Also, note the difference in origins between mainstream!Sauron and my Reboot!Sauron. With the change in origins, the Dependency became less of a plot issue so I decided to drop it. Reboot!Sauron was altered by Apocalypse (hidden behind fnord tags), rather than being bit by a were-pterodactyl.
I don't remember Sauron gaining specific powers as he absorbed them; if Wikipedia can be trusted, apparently he only gains a portion of the powers when it does happen. I guess I do vaguely remember it happening one time, but I think it was treated as special circumstances as he drained both Scott and Alex Summers (Cyclops and Havok). I know he got a few new tricks due to the Weapon X program, though.

Oh, and I think I prefer the Reboot! origin for Sauron to his actual one. :)

MOLECULE MAN

Real Name: Owen Reece.
Occupation: Former nuclear power plant technician turned professional criminal.
Identity: Known to the authorities.
Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with no known criminal record.
Other Aliases: None.
Place of Birth: Unrevealed.
Marital Status: Single.
Known Relatives: None.
Group Affiliation: Sometime partner of the Psycho-Man.
Base of Operations: Mobile.
History: Owen Reece was a technician at a Roxxon Energy Company nuclear power plant in the Midwest when the strangest incident occurred (see Roxxon Energy). While manipulating the waldos to remotely remove the nuclear waste and put fresh uranium into one of the three reactors on site, the reactor inadvertently switched itself on for half a minute; because Reece was the closest to the reactor while its shielding was open, he was bathed in nuclear radiation. Unlike what was expected, though, Reece did not immediately die of exposure, nor did he seem to be suffering from radiation poisoning of any kind. The only actual injury that occurred was that Reece was left with a series of scars on his face. An inquiry into the accident could not explain how it happened. Because the company felt they needed a scapegoat for the incident, as opposed to publicly admitting to being baffled, Reece was fired even though the accident was not his fault.

A lonely man with no friends and no family to turn to, Reece sank into a deep depression. At the height of his depression, he leaped off a bridge, only for his survival instinct to kick in at the last moment to cause the water beneath him to rise and cushion the blow from the fall. Realizing what had happened, Reece correctly determined his powers were the result of the reactor accident and decided to use his new powers for revenge against his firing. Calling himself the Molecule Man, Reece attacked the plant's corporate headquarters, a move which drew the attention of the Fantastic Four, whose leader, Reed Richards, was touring the facility (see Fantastic Four; Mister Fantastic). While sympathizing with Reece's plight, the Four were unable to talk him down; the resulting fight nearly destroyed one of the reactors, which perhaps coincidentally was the same reactor which had switched itself on weeks before. At the last minute, Reece used his powers to shut the reactor down before it went into meltdown. In a moment of clarity, he begged the Fantastic Four to kill him. Instead, Reed used his scientific genius to shunt Reece to another universe, one which Reed believed the Molecule Man could not hurt anyone besides himself.

The Molecule Man was later encountered during the Fantastic Four's second sojourn into the so-called Microverse, an alternate dimension normally accessible through reducing one's size through shunting mass extra-dimensionally using Pym particles (see Ant-Man; Microverse). Now focused on revenge on the Fantastic Four, who he irrationally believed responsible for the accident which scarred him, he formed a short-lived partnership with the renegade Microversian known as the Psycho-Man to attack the Fantastic Four through turning them against each other (see Psycho-Man). Where and when the Molecule Man will strike next is anyone's guess.
Height: 5' 7".
Weight: 160 lbs.
Eyes: Brown.
Hair: Brown.
Other Distinguishing Features: Owen has several scars on his face, radiating from the point where the nose meets the eyes, in the shape of lightning bolts.
Uniform: Green tunic with purple lightning bolts on the chest, green pants, purple wrist bands, purple boots, purple belt.
Strength Level: The Molecule Man possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in little regular exercise.
Known Superhuman Powers: The Molecule Man possesses incredible psionic control over matter, which he can manipulate on the molecular level, enabling him to perform such stunts as levitating and moving objects, creating and freezing a tidal wave,and using the ground to engulf his opponents. The only real limits on his power are self-imposed; for instance, he believes he cannot manipulate living tissue, so for all intents and purposes he cannot directly affect anyone with his powers. He cannot transmute one element into another, but he can break apart and combine various ambient elements and compounds; for example, he can combine the carbon in charcoal with oxygen in the air to create carbon monoxide.

While he believes he cannot affect or create living tissue, should he die his own power will revive him, even if his body is disintegrated.

Oops, I left off the number of levels. I don't have my notes on hand (at work on my phone ATM), but I would assume 10 levels, same as Create. Not sure how I overlooked that.

And I also missed a Binding I noticed in the GCA file but not in the entry itself. Oops.

Anyways, fixed! Thanks for pointing that out. Feedback on any of these builds is always welcome. :)

Role-Playing Notes:
Frank is a man driven to avenge the deaths of his wife and children by waging a war on organized crime. He knows what he's doing is likely to be the death of him, and he knows he's gotta be at least a little messed up in the head to do what he does. He doesn't care, though, as he figures one day he'll be reunited with his loved ones.

Design Notes:
1. I got some flack when writing this up for not making the Punisher a Vietnam veteran like his mainstream counterpart. Note, however, that a 'Nam veteran in 2010 would probably be pushing 70. Making him a Desert Storm veteran at least keeps him, in the timeframe of the Reboot, around 40, which isn't a bad age for a veteran, although he's likely to be slowing down as age hits him.
2. The organization, the Punishers, providing Frank with his initial gear as well as additional gear and intelligence as needed was inspired by a pic of an Asian woman cosplaying as Lynn Michaels, the "Lady Punisher". (I may one day stat her up, too.)
3. Part of me wanted to just give him Gun! (DX/WC) or condense the Guns skills to just "Light Anti-Armor Weapons", "Pistols", and "Rifles", as per the one Pyramid article. I decided not to do the latter due to not really knowing how the various Perks from Gun-Fu being condensed would have worked, particularly for the machine pistols.



Edit: Added Striking ST +7 and prerequisite Special Exercises Perks, giving him more striking power than his ST and physique would indicate.

It works kinda like a variant of Serendipity, where you can get a fortuitous circumstance to go your way, so long as some conditions are met. The ten point version can be used for almost any eventuality, and the five point one must fit within the theme (Ambushes, in the case of the Punisher build) chosen. You can actually get a glimpse of it in the preview of that issue HERE (scroll to the next-to-last page).
