Almost forgot it was Tuesday. My work schedule is crazy lately. But I remembered in time, so here’s my teaser.
Context: Evie’s been kicked out of the superheroes’ League, which automatically brands her as a villain. She’s studying to get back in.
I decide to take a break from the rules and try to go over the heroes and villains again. Every day I try to write up a list and give a little description, and every day I look up the current list on my phone, which has been hooked back up to the League’s system.
I write the supers down as I think of them onto two lists. Heroes. And villains.
Powers: Super speed and agility
Powers: Flies much like a hummingbird does, flitting from place to place with lots of speed
Powers: Can make people laugh at will. Stops villains breathless with laughter, keeps sneaksters from being sneaky, and great at breaking tension at parties
Powers: Transforms into a canine form, giving him greater speed and natural weapons (mainly teeth)
Powers: Natural body armor
Powers: Super-high learning curve (aka know-it-all). Does not fly.
Powers: Can make fire appear at will in her hands. Unknown if she reincarnates at death. Does not fly.
Best known for: Being a kickass superheroine. Let her back in, kay? It’s a total mistake that she’s on this list.
The Prairie Dog
Best known for: Digging his way into jewelry stores for robberies after hours. Throws mud that will stick to you and can detain you with it.
Best known for: Being the Cheetah’s arch-nemesis. They say they’re two sides of the same coin. Both run super fast and nimble. Covered the city in cats as a distraction for a robbery last year.
Best known for: Fighting the police and heroes to prove she’s most powerful. A nuisance, but nothing specifically villainous. Can jump crazy high.
Best known for: Being very old, very hairy, and running around naked a lot. (Gross.) Knives are embedded in his fingers. Pulled off the Luther Diamond heist last year.
Best known for: Not much is known about him. He’s been implicated in hiring petty thieves for minor crimes a lot, but there’s no pattern to this. It’s rumored he can go invisible. Rumors that he’s related to Panther seem to be unfounded.
Best known for: Being all out werewolf at will. Enjoys killing children in his wolf form.
Best known for: Ability to hypnotize his victims. Very big in the poisoning department. He has a scaly skin cover that protects him to some extent from attacks
Best known for: Teleportation abilities. Was a superhero until recently when he went AWOL. Whereabouts and plan unknown.
Hope you enjoyed.
