Perhaps. But originally, she just had blonde hair, and dyed it.

Then she got body-swapped with an asian who would have had it naturally.

So I'd probably use Distinctive Feature, not Unnatural Feature.

Your earlier write-ups were making HP equal to enhanced ST. I remarked before that that might not be the best model to use, but having some extra HP for the superstrength characters is probably a good idea. DR 4 seems like it ought to be a good ballpark figure for him, but maybe you could add some extra "crushing only".

True enough.

In any case, I can't wait till you do her.

Like Wolverine, I don't know if I'll include her in the Reboot just yet. If I did do Psylocke, I'd probably do her pre-butt-floss-ninja. Not sure yet if I'd include her bionic eyes, though, as she was blinded late in her Marvel UK career.

Once I get around to doing the X-Men's villains, I'll consider doing Sinister. He's pretty low on the list, though, unless I feel the urge to do him out of order.

I prefer that middle-version fluffy pink and lilac Psylocke, myself; the one that beat up Sabretooth.

Although the earlier one, a member of the UK's psi-team also had the purple hair; dyed, showed litle combat ability, and was only 'Captain Britains' Sister', was still quite a character.

Sorry if it's already been posted but I've only got about 1/3 the way through this thread so far :

Quote:
Tony Stark

... Tony Stark possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in moderate regular exercise.
...
St : 10
For a 225 lb man whom is not fat not infirm and engages in moderate regular exercise , Strength of 10 is a bit low . 225 lbs is a fair average for a Gridiron quaterback , a beefy bouncer or a steriotypical mob armbreaker and was the given weight The Comedian in Watchmen .

Even with the basic GURPS formula {4th ed} He should have about St 12 and it wouldn't be a stretch at all to say St 13 .

That's okay. I'm always up for feedback, good or bad. (I actually prefer the constructive criticisms and suggestions for improvement over some of the praise I've gotten.)

I took the weight from the OHOTMUDE, which may or may not be accurate as far as his weight is concerned. When I get around to adjusting things with Iron Man and his crew, I'll take another look at the weight and ST.


With a project of this size, particularly as it's a side project that I've been working on for the last few years on and off, there is a ton of work to do, and things are constantly being revised. Errors and discrepancies will creep in; the question becomes do we change the stats or the flavor text?

I'm about 225, mildly pudgy, and have ST 11 or so depending on your degree of normalization. I sometimes forget how big I am when compared to all you little people. :)
