SHUA new villains survey
« on: November 05, 2009, 01:57:50 PM »
Hi, everybody! 

I'm considering putting together a very combat-heavy SHUA mod.  My question is (and making no promises):  Are there any supervillains that you'd like to fight that aren't already found in SHUA? 

There might be room for an overlooked superhero cameo, or two, in the mod, as well.  So, feel free to put in a plug for a superhero who didn't make the SHUA Worldhack, as well. 

Extra no-prize points for supervillains not from Marvel or DC.   ;)

Until the future,

hans.

Is there a list of villains who are found in SHUA? I don't want to suggest ones that are already in the game.

I looked up the gallery at corhub, and I didn't find these villains there, so I assume they're not in SHUA.

Some ideas:


Joker from Batman (this one's obvious)

Violator from Spawn

Black Adam from Captain Marvel

Captain Nazi

Mr. Mxyzptlk from Superman

Solomon Grundy

Flat Top from Dick Tracy

Ozymandias from Watchmen

Syndrome from The Incredibles

This mod will sorta be an experiment to help me understand what good combat balance is in SHUA when a player makes their own PCs.  After I understand that better, I hope to do something more ambitious in the future. 

So, this mod will be combat heavy, with hardly any story, something akin to a stripped-down dungeon crawl.  To make it more interesting for players, tho, I figure to add lots of new art and use characters they haven't fought before. 

I've been impressed in the past by authors who have used MidPics, like Nol, Harri Polsa, and Devon7.  It's been something I've wanted to experiment with for a long time, and I figure this is a perfect opportunity for that.   

Also, I've been wanting to try my hand at converting comicbook images into UA.  I hope to use a range of styles, from old school, to painting, and modern computer-colored. 

I've altered the SHUA Frame to accomodate some 124x124 pics.  Below is an example.  Click to enlarge.

That looks great!
Some days it just doesn't pay to gnaw through the straps.

Yeah, Bainiac!

Is SHUA like OAUA, do you have to install UA again with this hack?

Here they are, first the Villains:

Bane
Darkseid
Galactus
R'as Al Ghul
Joker

Okay, these can be deleted from my suggestions, if they're already in the game.

But this list is pretty impressive, including even such terrifying villains as Owl and Paste-Pot Pete.  ;D

Okay, I suggested Killer Moth. But I just love the classic costume with the striped leggings:

No, OUAU is entirely different from everything else. Other worldhacks like SHUA can be run with your usual copy of UA and UAShell, as far as I know (just like you ran the Gamma World hack with it).

Speaking of Brainiac, what powers should a silver-age version of that villain have?   ???

A force field, of course...probably a ray-gun...anything else...?

I would love to fight some super-villains. :)

I'll cast a 'second' for Shredder and Violator as suggested by Ben.

I'd also like to see the following non-Marvel, non-DC viallains:
Omni-Man (Image) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omni-Man
Rasputin (Hellboy) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grigori_Rasputin_(Hellboy)
Ozymandius (Watchmen) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozymandias_(Watchmen)#Ozymandias
Evil Ernie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evil_Ernie
The Darkness http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Darkness_(comics)

The original Brainiac had powerful telepathic and psychokinetic abilities which he used against Superman. In addition to Force Field, I think he should have some of the Super Powers from the PS Specab and PS Power sets:

Telepathy      (Is Praying)
Willpower      (Immune to Slp/Charm)
Power Immunity 2   (Globe of Invuln)
Telekinetic Blast 1   (Hold Person)
Psychic Bolt   (Paralyze Spell)

Thanks, Nol!  All that certainly makes Brainiac a heavyweight villain! 

Other villains:

I've done a combat icon of Killer Moth that I do like (I was pulled in by the artistic challenge of those pants), so he'll show up, but I probably won't give him his own pic.  I'm reserving those for images that I find particularly intriquing.   :o

You can already fight Shredder in Darius' excellent TMNT mod, so I won't be including him.   :-[

No other decisions at this time.     ;D
