The silly superhero thread

This thread is for those heros and villains that are, somewhat less than serious.
If you can remember the characters in 'The Tick', you'll get the idea.

I invite you all to add your silly superheros.

FLAMABLE MAN

FLAMABLE MAN

Name : Peter Wikiwitz
Origin : Altered human
Age : 47

Peter was a cleaner in a chemistry research lab. After pouring bleach where he shouldnt, and knocking over a delicate experiment, he suffered a chemical explosion (to the face!).
He then gained amazing super powers!

Powers.
Flame on. With the help of a lighter, or a match, or indeed any spark, peters entire body can burst into flames. Although he (and his clothes) suffer no harm, it is hot, and he feels like he is burning. he also chokes on his own fumes and finds it hard too see. He has a tendancy to run round in circles, screaming.
His typical quote while flaming is "ARRRRRRRRGGHGH HOT HOT HOT ARRRRRGGGH"

As Flamable Man, peter uses his powers to rob jewelry stores. He tried robbing banks, but came away empty handed. Peter is not too bright.

Fanboy

Fanboy

Name: Jack Smith
Origin: Accident
Age: Twenty-Five

Origin: Jack was an electrician worker, when one day he lost his gloves, figuring he would not need them he worked anyway. He cut a wire and gave him a terrifying shock, causing him to fall into a coma. When he woke up, to his surprise, he now somehow got muscle tone. And even better yet, he realized he now has super powers.

Powers: Jack has the ability to hang from the ceiling by his feet when squatting, rotate his arms around his body, and illuminate his head. He spends most of his days using all three powers in random areas and have a person video record their responses.

The Hoser

The Hoser

Name : Stuart Awesome
Origin : Technology
Age : 34

Powers/Suit
2 fire extinguisher sized tanks of water, strapped to his back. Each is fitted with a small water pump, and ends in a hose strapped to each wrist.
The Hoser can thus fire blasts of water to a medium distance.
However, the equipment is fairly heavy, Stuart spends most of his time sitting on city benches and park seats, catching his breath.
Additionally. Each canister only holds 9 literes, giving The Hoser only 9 shots with each hand.

After witnessing a bungled bank job carried out (badly) by Flamable Man, Stuart decided to become a crime fighter.
Fortunatly, Stuart is of average intellect, so was able to cobble together a super suit, and became The Hoser.

Ensign Fodder

Ensign Fodder

Aka: Cannon Fodder
Starfleet Rank: Ensign
Age: 29

Blaster
Beam Rifle / Devices

Ensign Fodder a new redshirt on the Starfleet flagship (known for having a high red shirt casaties). Found himself on a strange alien world after a transporter malfunction. Unable to contact the ship he now has to survive on his own. With nothing but his Phaser, advance tech, and his own quick wit, Ensign fodder knows his time is running out. He just going to be blasting away till the power goes out or he goes out. "This is one Red Shirt who is Shooting first!"

Personal rules of good roleplay
1.) Nothing goes as planned.
2.) If it goes as planned it's not good RP

Giraffe Boy

Giraffe Boy

Name : Andy Pandy
Origin : Altered Human
Age : 14

On a school trip to Titan city zoo, Andy was bitten by a radioactive giraffe, and gained amazing giraffe-like super powers.

Powers:
Andy can extend his limbs and neck to 2 meters each. This gives him running spead upto 50-60 miles per hour, able to reach targets for melee combat a full round before they get to attack him, and the long neck lets him see things with a better view. He usually uses this to peek into girls bedrooms.
He also has a mystical "Giraffe Sense" power, and has been heard to say "my giraffe sense is tingling". This usually means he urgently needs to pee. The giraffe sense also goes off when there are lions nearby, which will still make him to pee.

Gunfighter Cliche'

Gunfighter Cliche'

Name: Duke Tough
Origin: Human altered to the point of satire
Age: 151

Duke Tough was a man's man. In his life he'd fought in the Civil War, helped tamed the Old West, been both criminal and lawman. He was just thinking of settling down with the local schoolmarm when a strange light appeared in the night sky. An alien ship from a faraway galaxy crashed near Duke's house. When he investigated, duke discovered that one of the aliens had survived. The woman (well...she LOOKED like a woman...) told him that they were trying to gather warrior from all through space to help fight in a great battle. Duke agreed to join in the fight because the schoolmarm was pretty dull anyways.

Astera (so she called herself) used the strange alien technology to make Duke faster on the draw than any man alive. She also gave him a metal arm that was very strong and had all sorts of gadgets in it. To go with all the fancy toys she gave Duke a fancy new gun that fired something called Plasma. Then she sent Duke into the future to a place where she knew folks needed help.

Basically every bad scholcky sci-fi theme complete with cowboys, pretty aliens and ray guns.

I remember when Star Wars was cool...a long, long time ago...

Since I've noticed a lack of female silly supers...(I'm so sorry ladies, feel free to get revenge on me)...

PMT Girl!

Name : Wendy Bendix
Origin : Natural
Age :23

Wendy is a strong assertive woman, of absolutley ANY ethnic or racial background. Honestly, it doesnt matter.
From the age of 14, she discovered that for 5 days a month, she can win any fight, and can drive any male into a panic by asking them to go to the shops for her.
Her powers do not work on other females, who are rather sympathetic to her plight.
Wendy is a crime fighter, but not very often. When she IS 'in the mood', beware, she's ferocious.

Bastion Booger

Bastion Booger

Name : Mike Shaw
Origin : Wrestler
Age : 57

Mike Shaw is the wrestler known as Bastion Booger!.

Powers.
Bastion Booger is a, well, Bastion. His power sets are 'lard arse' defence (think Marvels "the blob"), with assault offence, a mix of super strength and ranged attacks of stench and pizza throwing. He is both a lovable character, and loathed by all who encounter him.

Grand Wizard Neckbeard

Grand Wizard Neckbeard

Name: Avery Nekbierd
Age:32

A genius nerd in his youth, as a grown man living in his mom's basement he convines his LARP troupe to form a gang. Sadly all they've managed to do so far is extort lunch money from some high schoolers and TP the house of the girl Avery had a crush on in highschool but now scorns for rejecting him. His weapons are a pair of high tech "Wizard gloves" that can simulate magic spells from his larp game when he says the right "magic words" and moves his hands in the right way. He also has a "spell component pouch" containing gadgets that simulate other spells when he pulls them out and throws them on the ground.

Doctor Lederhosen

Doctor Lederhosen

A man obsessed with polka decides to build giant robot pants and bring his favorite music genre to the people whether they like it or not. His main attacks are dancing around in giant robot legs designed to look like a pair of legs in lederhosen and playing extremely bad polka that causes everyone around him to run and scream while clutching their ears.
