CDC #363 – Team Building – Part 2

The premise of this contest is that over the next number of weeks we will build a team of superheroes and a team of villains. Each week I will supply you with a role, name, or list of powers of one of the team members and you will use HM3 to create the character. The winner each week will win a version of their character created on HM by yours truly.

Your challenge this week is to create the leader of the villain squad. He has a Phd in both \theoretical and astrophysics, and is a man driven almost completely by ego. Years of ridicule over his social awkwardness at the hands of his associates left him angry and vengeful, a state made lethal when mixed with his intelligence. While he has no actual superpowers, he has manufactured a suit that gives him the power of flight, and a helmet that harnesses the incredible power of his brain which allows him to alter the time line and create twisted hallucinations in the minds of others. He took the moniker Dr. ________. (fill in the blank) and killed his way into becoming the leader of a group of the universe’s most deadly criminals.

Please follow the instructions below regarding the naming of entries.

    Doctor Cranium: In addition to the powers mentioned above, his suit also gives him super strength, telekinesis, a plasma cannon, and a machine gun.

    Are we allowed to change the title from “Dr.” to “Professor”??

    I prefer doctor.

  4. G. W. says:

    Doctor ____ is too ridiculously overpowered. He can manipulate the timeline, which is basically a more limited version of warping reality with the benefit of doing it to any timeframe, and, if his illusions are powerful enough, has essentially mind control powers. These two together negate the need for a villain team. He can effectively do whatever he wants. If he wishes to rule the world, he can manipulate temporal events in such a fashion that he is the ruler, and use his illusions to keep the people obedient.

    fair enough…Dr. it is…

  6. livewyre1014 says:

    @ G.W. – manipulating the time line and and knowing the outcomes of those manipulations are two different things. For example…going back in time and killing a baby Hitler would prevent his ascension in Germany…however, the political and sociological atmosphere that allowed Hitler to ascend in the first place would still exist. That being the case, someone not as politically savvy as Hitler, but more disciplined and militarily competent with the same goals may ascend in his place, making the Holocaust worse than it was. Manipulating the time line is a power beyond measure, but someone with the intellect of Dr.______ would be cautious enough to realize that anything to dramatic could result in situations even he could not control. 3 dimensional chess vs. tic-tac-toe

  7. G. W. says:

    @livewyre1014 but someone with the intellect of Dr. ____ could potentially be smart enough to know the outcome of any changes.

  8. djuby says:

    G. W.:

    No, He is not psychic. The Long Island Medium is psychic. Also we have yet to determine if any members of either team is immune to his mind control. Patience…
    Also if he is “ridiculously overpowered” why on earth would he need a plasma cannon?

  9. G. W. says:

    I didn’t analyze his power set until after I made Doctor Cranium.

  10. G. W. says:

    I’ll stop going on about this. I still have some concerns, but they have mostly been settled.

  11. livewyre1014 says:

    “You can feel it, can’t you? Trying so hard to remember that place where, that time when, that person who…straining so hard to recollect what you know is right, but you just can’t quite hold on to it. You feel like you’re going crazy…not able to hold onto your own memories. Are you losing your mind? Was it all a dream? …Perhaps. Or, perhaps I changed the timeline to take those experiences from you. Because of me you never went to that place…never did that thing…never met that person. I…am…Dementia!! And you should always remember that I can take away all that you are, one little piece at a time!!!” Dr. Dementia

    Here is my first entry, the villainous Dr. Nightmare.

    “You laughed, insulted my intellect. You dirt eating worms ridiculed me for years on my work. But this day you beg, you plead and cry for forgiveness. You deserve none from a being such as myself. With my glorious intelligence and perseverance I have created this helmet to tap into the chronos-stream enough allowing me to change life’s outcomes and alter anything I wish. And in addition as you already know, I make you see the darkest and the most horrid things you could ever see.”
    Beware of DR. GATEMARE!

    The diabolical Dr Kronos

  15. Brons says:

    Dr. Seymour St. Angelus, PhD never got the respect that he always knew he deserved—not as a boy nailed in a crate and rolled down a hill, not as a teenager with sand kicked in his face, not as a big nerd on campus, not as a brilliant theoretical physicist—never. It ate him, and so he turned his massive intellect to crime, and was veritably ignored. Well, never again. No more St. Angelus, the martyr. He became Doctor Diabolicus! And… again the laughed. For a while. And then the diabolical doctor had his revenge.

    It started with The Rattler, a B-List supervillain who’d been Seymore’s bête noire even back when they’d been kids in Austin, Texas, who was driven mad, poisoned with his own venom gun, and as he lay writhing in pain vanished, his father suddenly having become the first victim of the Texas Tower Shooter back in 1961. Much to Seymour’s chagrin, as history was rewritten a second bully took his place, and Seymour now remembered not only being picked on by Spike Magee, the Rattler, but Butch Wilson, who later became the Sidewinder. No one but Seymour remembered Spike and his cruelties, but the memories haunted him. Sidewinder, too, died at the hands of Diabolicus, and was again wiped from history, only to be replaced by Diamondback Dick Durkin as Seymour’s tormentor.

    Diabolicus, haunted by multiple lives of suffering at the hands of bullies, went on a rampage, a rampage that only added to his torment and madness, resulting in the sinister figure that the world knows today, as the evil Doctor Diabolicus…
