Looks like Delirium has a similar concept, so I switch mine to a logistics coordinator with contacts, Morph, and investigative skills.

Name: Arbella Hernandez
Secret identity cover: Lady Luck
Age: 24
Power/Concept: Luck/Buffs Allies and Debuffs Enemies
Former Team: US Gymnastics

Background: When you are born into poverty the world is vastly different from that of people who aren’t. When your parents are in and out of homeless shelters and sometimes you sleep in a car things get down to the ragged edge. Education is haphazard and meals are now and again, the best part of the year isn’t summer break it’s school. That’s when you get a solid lunch every day and you can get seconds too. It’s also when your address can be made up on the fly and you can go to some of the best public schools as long as you can get up early and take a subway. If it turns out you have talent, then things can get even better for you. The school doesn’t care as much about where you might be from and you can spend weekends at your friend’s houses maybe borrow clothes too.

It was hard years for Arbella years of need and want that would stress anyone out. But she made it her years in Gymnastics have put her at the top she was got into and won the US Nationals. Then came the Olympics...

Gaining Powers and learning to live with them: The Tests at the Nationals had come back negative so she didn't even realize she really had powers until the tests came back positive. Then there was a lot of arguing back and forth and finally she had a choice. Pretend to be sick with something or let the world know she had powers and might have been cheating. It was an easy choice and so she went with the pretense of Cancer and watched from the sidelines as her team won silver. The only recompense was that with her powers she could do good for the world and be paid for it. So, Lady Luck was born and Arbella well she'll always be known as the girl who might have been. The golden girl of US Gymnastics who everyone just knows that if she hadn't had cancer would have totally brought home the gold.

Personality: Arbella is a very together girl; she’s been through some of the worst crap a life in the inner city can give and survived. She’s focused and strives to be the best she can be. If someone needs help she’ll help them, but she is the very last person who will ask for help.

Hey Ysolde,

Interesting set of powers. I wanted to add a detail for consideration: Since you are using both Luck Control and Fortunate Failure as 'powers', you won't get to use both of them at the same unless you burn a Hero Point to buy yourself another round of action, and even then, that's not considered at the same time either. Because of that, I'd recommend putting the powers into an array, and saving yourself 29 points to use in other places to continue to develop your character. Assuming this fits your build, of course.

Just a thought. =)

Thank you for the suggestion of Hero Labs. I got that and it was so much easier making the character.

I have creative a speedster. 16 year old who played sports and is studying Science. I got the powers and stuff worked out, but am still working on the background.

So I've worked with M&M a little, but we never got to actually playing M&M, but I got 40+ years of RPG experience otherwise

Given the background we have so far, I'm thinking this would be a good time to use a concept for a character I've bounced around for a few years now called "Final Girl", as in the last survivor of a Slasher Flick

Alison "Ally" Winston was beginning to display some minor meta-human abilities and had been in training on the day of the attacks with her superhero tutors at their headquarters. She wasn't much help of course, and was 'only' gravely injured, while everyone else was killed. After spending a few weeks in a coma, she suddenly woke up fully healed. Traumatized to be sure, but no atrophy or other physical complaints. In fact, she was in better physical health and shape since before the attacks. It would seem a her powers had fully awakened and some new ones had appeared as well.

Powers:

Major: Regen, armor manifestation, Psychic weapon generation, ranged and melee (machetes, axes, and other melee weapons. Bows, crossbows, spearguns, and other simple mechanical ranged weapons)

Minor: Telepathy, Healing others

Drawbacks:

Not sure if this is actually a drawback, still putting the char together in an Excel spreadsheet builder, but when she armors up or starts using her powers, her face may be somewhat covered in a psychic illusion of blood.

Name Ratko McAlpine
nationally Scottish/Serbian
Age 24
Alias Chernobog
Concept divine avatar of the black god Chernobog of Slavic myth.

Background
Ratko McAlpine, is the middle child of Andrew McAlpine and Bojana McAlpine nee Ilić, and has an older brother Dennis, and a younger sister, Anja. In their youth, Bojana would delight in telling them the stories about her homeland, of Serbia, myths and legends. She was a good storyteller, and her stories would remain with them.
At school however, some children would try to bully Ratko, mainly because he was part Serbian, and he was lumped with the moniker of Ratty, Rat-face, and other variations. Bullies at his school weren't terribly creative. He always tried to stand up to them, using his words when he could. Not always successful however, and eventually the school had to intervene. After that the bullying eased off.
Perhaps that fed into his decision to join the army, to become strong enough to protect himself and others. He was the only one of his siblings to not go to university, and his mum wept, cried, and begged him not to enlist, fearing for him. At last she accepted that she wasn't going to change his mind, and managed to wish him well.
He enlisted, and became an commissioned officer in the RMP, royal military police, joining their investigative wing. Having ability at his job, Ratko was promoted to the rank of sergeant. Eventually he was sent overseas to the middle East.
At first this posting was dull. However little by little Ratko noticed several odd things. Pulling on this thread , Ratko discovered a conspiracy of some senior officers stealing weapons and selling them on. Unfortunately they were also aware of Ratko end his investigation. Captured, he was shot, believed to be dead, and buried alive.
It was there, between life and death, Ratko encountered Chernobog. He at first didn't believe it was him. Who would? However Chernobog convinced him. He had need of a champion, as he put it someone was trying to alter the balance of life and death, and this was a bad thing. Ratko accepted the offer, but there is always a price for such power. He lost the memory of his first kiss.
Chernobog warned him he would need to learn his powers, ally with other powered people and gave him knowledge on how to contact the League of Heroes, an European/north African superhero group.
Just like that Ratko awoke and found himself outside his makeshift grave. He went back to the base and reported the guilty officers. However when he went to arrest them, they all suffered dark fates.
Captain Brennan tried to shoot Ratko, but instead his gun exploded in his hands.
Sergeant Ali ran, but he tripped on a wet, cleaned flight of stairs, his neck twisted and snapped.
Major Thomas managed to escape in a jeep, but he chose one where the brakes were faulty. He crashed into a mosque, flew through the windscreen, cracking his skull like an egg on the wall.
Ratko was shaken by these deaths, rightly suspecting that his new dark power was responsible. He needed to get control of it. He wanted to arrest these men, not bring about their deaths. Getting an honourable discharge from the army was easy. They wanted to cover up the scandal.
Then Ratko heads for London, waiting at Trafalgar square. Whilst there, a black man, not much older then Ratko, starts a friendly conversation. It takes Ratko longer than he's going to admit to, to realise this guy was a leaguer. Thoth in fact, a wizard with much knowledge, a legacy hero where the mantle is passed down the generations. Thoth offers to sponsor Ratko's application into the League, and help him master his new powers. Not seeing a reason to refuse, Ratko accepts. Smiling Thoth transports them to the tower, a silver structure floating in the sky. Ratko is kept away from the others at first. He isn't in control of his powers, and Thoth wanted to avoid accidents. It's during his training that Ratko and Thoth rapidly became best friends for life. Thoth was a cheeky one, and Ratko liked that sense of humour.
Eventually Ratko was deemed safe enough for general population, and could meet the rest of the League.
He's immediately drawn to Theodora, whom like him is new to the League. They start dating, and after a couple of months it's serious. There's talk of moving in together, even if getting a cat. Ratko feels the happiest he's ever been.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. Whilst Ratko is relaxing in the base sauna, a set of explosions go off. The tower begins to break apart. There is so much screaming, and in some cases the screams are cut short. Only Ratko's new power form saves him, incoporeality saving him from the fall, and being crushed by the tower and it's debris.
Ratko was one of the few survivors. Thoth and Theodora were not. Broken by grief he did not notice or care about the other superhero team that came to investigate the disaster. Right up to the point where they arrested him for it. He was framed.


Description Ratko is the only one of his siblings to resemble his mother, with his red hair and green eyes, though he does have his father's height, being quite tall. A casual dresser since he left the army. His hero outfit is a black body suit.
In Chernobog avatar form, Ratko appears as a vaguely humanoid dark shadow, wreathed in darkest blue fire, a crown on his head, his eyes blood red.

Turbo

The link on the name will get you the character sheet. The Wind Conditions power is supposed to be him spinning his arms in front of him and creating a strong wind blowing out away form him, like the Flash could do. I think it covers it, but if something is wrong or missing or you know a better way to cover that power.

Anyone use The Lone Wolf Development Hero Lab Classic to make MM character?

It's like $35, but comes with a ton of character generators and other stuff, not bad if it works well

Yes. I just got it at anothers suggestion and I love it. It made it so much easier to make the character as it keeps track of your power points and gives warnings if you go over a well as suggestions if it thinks you left a defense or other stat too low. Took me maybe an hour to make that character instead of several hours by book/pdf.

Fighting Styles are fine for anyone who wanted to take them.

I am still taking applications and looking at them as they come in.

Boy, the applicants have really started to come out of the woodwork now, huh?
