The Raven (no civilian name yet).
This is not the original Raven. The original Raven was an early eighteenth century French aristocrat who stole things out of boredom. He was a brilliant man, and invented a pair of wings and other gadgets to aid him in his robberies. He left France when he realized the nation was turning toward revolution, and because he had many enemies in France, and moved to England and then to the US under a fake identity so he couldn’t be followed by any of his enemies. His family was still wealthy.
Since then, the identity of the Raven has been passed down generation after generation to the previous Raven’s oldest child, or, if the child is not yet eighteen, the Raven’s oldest sibling, and from there I haven’t figured it out. Each Raven has done different things with the identity. Some have been straight-up thieves, some have become Robin Hood-like figures, and some weren’t even thieves.
This is the current Raven. He is a burglar and vigilante. Like most of the rest of his family, he steals out of boredom. As a vigilante, he battles criminals far worse than himself, with an emphasis on mob bosses. He is the primary foe of the Eagle, though the two alternate between being enemies and being strained allies.
The Raven has a snarky sense of humor, and is usually fairly laid back. His tools include the wings (again, not the original wings. Each Raven has either made their own wings or heavily modified those of the previous Raven), a sword which condenses into a ball, explosives, smoke bombs, and a device of his own invention that can easily open any door with a key hole to name but a few (he also uses standard thieving equipment such as crowbars, glass cutters, and rope). He also has a device he can use to call in his helicopter if the wings are damaged. Raven is also the head of a corporation founded by his great-grandfather in the late nineteenth century.

Next to nothing is known about him.
No one knows his name.
No one knows how he got his powers.
No one knows exactly how powerful he is.
All they know is that he is a criminal with computer related abilities. It is believed that he can transform into pure data and access the digital world by touching a computer. Once inside the computer, he can seemingly do pretty much anything the computer is. He can access another computer through communication. He does not seem to be all powerful, as, other-wise, he would have destroyed government servers. He often works as a mercenary. His most famous jobs are the “ATM crash” and the “Computer plague.” Before he became a mercenary, he rode across the country, hacking into into hundreds of ATM machines in the middle of the night. Just before getting out of them, he pretty much set off a time bomb, causing each ATM to dispense of all of its money and then crash permanently, displaying nothing but his symbol. In the computer plague, he emailed himself to countless people, stealing their information, sending himself to everyone they had ever emailed, and crashing their computers, displaying his calling card. As such, it is believed that his data form can replicate itself.

The Protector (for this week’s CDC. Assuming he doesn’t win, I’ll add him to my universe anyway.)
A wealthy man who had an experience which opened his eyes to the poverty in his city. The more he analyzed the situation, the more he realized that it all came down to corruption. He informed just one man of his plans, and this man helped him create the suit. Initially going by “The Hawk,” he was initially brutal in his methods. Before long, he became substantially less extreme in his methods, becoming far more of an outright hero and renaming himself “The Protector.” However, he was still a little more willing to bend the rules than most
Eventually, the Hawk met a superhero named “Captain Meteor.” The two did not initially get along, as Captain Meteor did not approve of some of the Protector’s methods. However, they soon mostly settled their differences and became good friends. They were both the founding members of this superhero team, with Captain Meteor as the leader. After some time as a team, Meteor was killed, temporarily splitting up the team. Now, the Protector has come in with a new team.
The protector has no powers of his own, but is extremely intelligent, and his suit gives him the powers of flight, super strength, and small energy bursts.April 28, 2018 at 6:02 am #150623
Updated Little John
When Robin Hood was just starting out, having recently set up shop in an abandoned warehouse, he met John Little. Robin was searching around the area, when he ran into a tall, strong man carrying a metal rod. The man, thinking he was in some way working for the city’s corrupt police force or the mob, engaged Robin in a fight, which spanned across the rooftops of Sherwood. After a battle lasting almost two hours, the men realized that they shared similar goals, and decided to become allies.

I was planning on making this a direct post, but I’m having issues, so here is a link to a google doc:April 28, 2018 at 5:16 pm #150636
Force of Nature: The combined form of all four brothers. Since the form is extremely powerful, dangerous, and difficult to maintain (and requires a level of group coordination, cooperation, and agreement they haven’t yet achieved in their current incarnation), the brothers rarely use it, but they are working on it.
This form can do more powerful versions anything the individual brothers, plus some things they cant (i.e., volcanoes).April 28, 2018 at 7:00 pm #150640

Doctor Cranium, the villain I created for this week’s CDC. In addition to those artificial powers listed in the prompt, his suit also allows him super strength, a machine gun, and a gun that fires plasma beams.May 30, 2018 at 12:20 pm #151059
For this week’s contest, Mister E. In addition to the listed abilities of flight, telekinesis, timeline-jumping, and neuro-orbs, the dragon on Mister E’s shirt is enchanted with the ability to spring to life. Its fire stuns rather than burning. Mister E’s helmet can fight off telepathic attacks, and also allows Mr. E to telepathically communicate. He can transmit the attack-resistance power to his teammates by touch, but not the other abilities (though he can use the helmet to open up a communication channel between two or more people, making communication during combat easier.May 30, 2018 at 1:53 pm #151061

Robin’s second recruit: Will Scarlet. Scarlet was just a common thief, trying to make a living. He volunteered to help Robin, who allowed him to join him reluctantly. He has since proved useful, as he is a master of knives and swords, having found several books on the subjects in a dumpster and practiced using various techniques with variously sized pieces of metal.June 3, 2018 at 12:01 am #151104
Gilbert Whitford is a master archer who, a couple years into Robin’s vigilante career, suddenly arrived on the scene as the vigilante “White Hand.” Other than his name, nothing is known about him (and the name could very possibly be an alias.) Enigmatic though he may be, he has been very helpful to Robin’s team.
