Mad Jack

So here’s the rest of the bunch …

From Baltimore, Maryland – The MONUMENTal State:
Monument is capable of growing to a maximum of twohundred (200) feet high trough rapid acquisition of bodily mass from an yet unknown source, whereby the extra mass fortifies all of his cellular tissue, including his bones and muscles, enabling him to support his increased weight, and giving him superhuman strength. In the picture he limited his growth to “just” sixty (60) feet which he preferes since growing to more gigantic sizes is both physically and mental very demanding, but a natural neurological reflex prevents him from growing beyond the limits of his body endurance anyway.

From New York, New York – The MELTing Pot:
Melt(er) can increase the temperature of either his entire body or just any part of it at will and is able to generate intense levels of heat, up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. In this temporarily state he can melt most conventional materials, including stone and some types of metals, and cause severe burns with a single touch.

From Portland, Oregon – The HARDCASE State:
The former Marine was a victim of a bomb explosion on his third tour in Afghanistan in which he lost both arms and legs and great parts of his body were severely damaged. Dependent on a life support system and already a bit suicidal he agreed to an experimental medical procedure, in which large parts of his damaged body were replaced with cybernetic prosthetics and bionic transplants. Although it is difficult even for him to say where the man ends and the machine begins, he has drawn new hope and uses his new won powers for the good of his fellow men. As a cyborg his robotic bodyparts are mainly composed of nanites, allowing him to transform or expend his limbs, adapt technology and weapons appropriate for the present situation or opponent, and control machines as well as computers.

From Burlington, Vermont – The State with the motto FREEDOM & UNITY:
These two heroes are identical twins with the ability to merge both their bodies into one single large creature that combines and multiplies their individual powers. Freedom possesses increaded speed, strength and invulnerability whereas Unity has vast telepathic and telekinetic abilities.
Normally the transformation goes quick and easy, but sometimes it can be corrupted through outside forces like energy attacks. If that happens they can get stuck “inbetween” for days or even weeks…

From Milwaukee, Wisconsin – The BADGER State:
Badgers senses of sight, smell and hearing are superhumanly acute and comparable to those possessed by certain animals. He can see things at very great distances and with perfect clarity even in near-total darkness and his sense of hearing is similarly enhanced, allowing him to hear sounds that ordinary humans can’t. He can use his highly developed sense of smell to track or recognize someone by their scent, even if it has been covered up or eroded over time. Also his agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete and each of his fingers are tipped with retractable claws that are razor sharp and capable of rending substances as durable as flesh, bone, wood, stone, and even some types of metals.

… and 2 bonus characters:

From Washington, DC – The District also known as DMV:
When the owner of a small business in Washington committed suicide after being driven to ruin through the dark machinations of politicians and lobbyists, his son vow revenge and became a dark merciless vigilante who not just fights the crime on the streets, but also hunts down everyone who abuses his power or tramples on the rights of the litte guy on Main Street. Described as a “disillusioned merciless vigilante” by a journalist he adopted that name willingly in its abbreviation “DMV” which also stands for his area of operation: DC, Maryland, Virginia…

From Salinas, Puerto Rico – The SHINING STAR of the Caribbean:
He possesses the ability to bodily generate thermo-chemical energy and release it from almost any part of his body to a wide variety of effects such as for flight at great heights and speeds by directing it as a downward thrust or shooting plasma in the form of blasts that causes objects to shatter, explode, or seemingly disintegrate. He can also manifest his energy as an impenetrable and virtually indestructible personal shield, which absorbs outside kinetic impact into his own energy supply and then can be re-channeled to increase the bludgeoning power of his blows or to create explosive shock waves upon impact.

I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did … ;)
