Thanks and here is the Black Rose, one of the most feared crime bosses in my universe. He has no powers except a genius strategic mind.October 1, 2019 at 9:49 am #159331
Here is Andy Zorin, one of the Black Rose’s top lieutenants who is an empath. Andy is a sociopath and feels nothing, but is an impeccable actor. He uses his ability to feel and manipulate emotions to ingratiate himself into groups before causing them to self destruct.October 1, 2019 at 9:51 am #159334
Here is Katame, the Black Rose’s silent bodyguard.October 3, 2019 at 2:10 am #159370
I like the red suit for Heat better, but the tat on the other one looks more . . . right.
So–the sociopath can turn on and off empathy? Or doesn’t feel them really, but senses them and plays them well? A sociopath who feels feelings that aren’t his could easily become addicted–work next door to a hookah bar or an emergency room . . . or a brothel? Hmmmmm.October 20, 2019 at 5:52 pm #162579
Thanks HerrD, and it is the latter for Andy. He feels nothing but is excellent at imitating emotions. When acting, he comes off as a friendly guy you’d like to have a beer with, but when the mask comes off, he is cold and ruthless.
Here is Andrew Carson, a former member of SPARO turned EMT for the Hero Hospital. The Hero Hospital is a hospital full of people with healing powers who caters towards those involved in superhuman conflict. Andrew has light invulnerability and superstrength.

Here is John Carroll, a former student of the Institute turned terrorist and mass murderer.
John is potentially one of the most powerful telepaths on the planet. Unfortunately, he cannot turn his powers off and his range is always growing. When he got to the Institute, he could hear all thoughts within a mile radius of him, but his distance grew at an exponential rate. He tried to tune them out, but his ability to suppress his powers was outpaced by the growth of his powers. Listening to music seemed to help, but eventually there was nothing the Institute could do to help him. So he became a hermit, isolating himself to try to get some silence.
But his powers continued to grow until he could no longer hide. It seems as though the entire globe is now in his reach, leaving him with a never ending cacophony in his head. This drove him mad and led him to try to find ways to silence the noise in his head by force. So he became a terrorist with the goal of causing as much casualties as possible. He also has the ability to project some of the thoughts he hears into other people. This mass influx of thoughts causes its victims to overload, causing a fatal brain hemorrhage. He does not use this often as it limits the amount of voices he can suppress.November 10, 2019 at 1:22 pm #164101
Here is Riley Clay, one of the hero world’s biggest benefactors.

He and his father managed to mend their relationship before his father passed away. Now in charge of one of the biggest tech companies in the world, Riley stepped down from heroing to help the hero world in another way. Clay Technologies helps fund the BSH and supplies all of their tech.November 16, 2019 at 7:39 am #164226
