Outcry-Villain Backstory Help

I had a concept about a potential villain or villainess who wields sonic powers, and I drew a blank regarding a potential background

So I wanted to bounce the idea off you guys, and see what you guys could come up with!

Thanks~

Is all you have "Villain with Sonic powers"? More info would be nice if you have it.

With a name like Outcry they could see themselves as some sort of anti-establishment freedom fighter. You know, government is corrupt, no help for the disenfranchised masses, etc.

Sorry for the lack of information-I personally see them as perhaps a vigilante or anti hero, or a fallen hero who sees themselves as still fighting for what they think is right

Social Media Icon turned

Social Media Icon turned villain who was outed as using her fame and wealth to get people into uncomfortable situations with promises of fame and fortune. They were of course to dumb to say no or decided it was best to not say no and instead get rich and famous! However, after one person finally decided to out a Hollywood producers, all of this social media icon's past dalliances turned on her and exposed her even with no evidence, turning her own social media against her. Now, she is Outcry, getting revenge on everyone! Whether they deserve it or not!

Putting a modern day spin on it for you :)

Sounds a little like Screwball from the 2017 Spiderman cartoon.

It's a good show. My second favorite Spiderman show after Spectacular Spiderman.

I was waiting for Spectacular

I was waiting for Spectacular Spider-Man to hit Netflix or just buy it straight Season 1 on DvD. That one I saw some episodes of (think it was that one) and it looked promising. :)

This might be too dark, but...

Outcry used to be at technician working on a compartmentalized project for a company with military ties. She didn't know that the military ties were off-the-books and illegal, or that many world leaders were in on it, or even what she was building (due to compartmentalization). Turns out, they were building sonic weapons that could target anyone anywhere for either assassination or permanent brain damage (see recent sonic attacks in Cuba irl for inspiration). The ultimate goal was to create a powerful enough sonic device to invisibly cause the death of entire populations in a form of mass genocide/ethnic cleansing that would be untraceable. When she did find out what was going on, she became a whistle-blower, which was perfectly legal to do because the company and authorities facilitating its pay were doing extremely illegal stuff.

To threaten her to shut up, they targeted her family (and this is where it gets dark). She tried to get clever and hide her family but continue speaking out. It didn't work. Her husband is dead and her son was brainwashed into thinking she's lost her mind and is out to get him. Her social security number has been erased and a false criminal record ten miles long has been created for her covering everything from torture to embezzlement to blaming the murder of all the conspiracy's test subjects on her, and they even threw in some prostitution just to piss her off. The police and the news agencies weren't in on the conspiracy, but they believed the information they were handed and ran with it.

Now she hates everyone who helped ruin her life and wouldn't listen to her... which is everyone, as in, absolutely everyone. She kept the schematics out of the whistle-blowing attempt so they wouldn't be abused, but now uses them to complete various sonic weapons to get her revenge. Her versions are more crude and not able to target populations or anything, but they are definitely good for combat. Her main target is anyone who actually knew about the conspiracy, which involves various world leaders and heads of major corporations. Secondary targets are anyone who reported false information about her, which is a really long list because pretty much every news outlet in the world and police station on the continent ran with the information they thought was true. To make matters worse, she doesn't know that repeated close proximity to the user's end of the sonic devices can cause mental instability.

Outrageously outed outside

Outrageously outed outside the outback outhouse, outpouring an outstanding yet outré outrage, our outbleating outlaw outcast himself as… Outcry!

Bio - Thats a pretty damn

Bio - Thats a pretty damn epic character brief/storyline. Its also quite an interesting Villain idea, one that isn't totally a villain in a sense but someone that was driven into a dark path.
