I've made a minor update to the google doc - taking a few spare minutes this morning to write about ability score generation. Nothing too exciting yet, as this month is dedicated to producing NOD #5, PARS FORTUNA and a secret project I'm working on.
Now, part of the community involvement in this project concerns which heroes are going to get the nod and be drawn by our artist, Joel Carroll (that's a sample of his work in the upper right corner), and included in the book as sample heroes. I've gone through about 300 golden age, public domain heroes and whittled it down to 35 heroes in seven different categories - Golden Age patrons are going to get to vote on which hero from each category makes the cut. Today, I'm featuring the five heroes competing in the Ubermensch category.
An ubermensch is a hero based on the prototypical hero - flight, super strength, invulnerability and a few extra powers stuck in to avoid a copyright violation. Our ubermenschen are ...
A seaman named Willy with the power of the atom in his hands - is there anything radiation can't do?
His name is Lance Gallant, and he has a magic birthmark that joins him with his dead twin - not for nothing did he appear in Crack comics
Black-clad avenger of injustice - imagine if Supes went around torturing people - now imagine he lived under the 1939 World's Fair
Cantankerous alien defender of Earth - I needed an alien in this category for obvious reasons, and I liked that this one seemed to have a crappy attitude toward the people he was saving, probably because of the name they gave him - and check out those eyebrows!
Demi-goddess defender of the great white north. Her enemies include the Queen of Statica (too clingy), Dr. Electra (has a complex) and Adolf Hitler (yeah, that guy).
Golden Age patrons don't need to vote now - if the project gets funded I'll email you a "ballot" to handle all that.
