1st Generation Heroes
These heroes are great to pick up for a quick game, or if you’re demoing Power Outage for some friends who’ve never played it before.
Growing up on a military base is not always fun, but having parents involved in the Research and Development Department is. The interesting thing is parents don’t always see the potential of things, and often projects and equipment would go into the catacombs of disused equipment. It was in these long forgotten warehouses of antiquated technology where you enjoyed playing, that you were able to piece together your Shieldster suit from the throw offs of armored vehicles, and undersized exoskeletons. Now given your district access pass, you are free to go out and make a difference. Defending those who need to be shielded.
When your parents ship crashed here some 70 years ago, you thought there was going to be absolutely nothing to do on this humdrum planet. But when the nice agents relocated your family to Outage, you discovered that there was a whole playground of fun things to see and learn and do.
It may not be easy to make friends, especially when you’re lime green, but you know so long as you keep positive, and believe in yourself, you’ll not only make a few friends, but help some people too.
It’s time to go explore!
Growing up in an Atomnyy Zavod Orphanage may seem like it is a drab and miserable existence, but not for you. You were always able to find the ways to make everyone's lives better. To encourage those around you to work harder, and be stronger, and their strength became yours. Now It’s time to bring that sense of community to the rest of Outage. Its time to bring people together, even if it means you must lose yourself in the crowd.
You are a protector of the lonely. You are the gatherer of great forces. You are the signal in the night.
It started out as a normal day on the movie set. The star was called away and you were called in, to backflip off a landing and into a vat of fake Atomic Accelerator. What you didn’t know was that the director had thought in order to achieve authenticity, he would use the real stuff.
After countless tests, one secret Factory Scientist explained that your sub-atomic particles can move so fast that you can actually split a duplicate of yourself from the future to occur simultaneously in the present. Much like a very real and tangible after-image.
With great power, comes great acting scenes. And what better way to prepare for your future as a hero on stage, than to be a hero in real life.
Growing up on the mean and watery streets in the sink can be tough, but you’ve always been a tough kid. You used to sneak into the crowds of the fighting barges, to watch the boxers practice their arts. Every day you trained diligently until the point where your body was a a perfect boxing machine. And then, to top it all off, you discovered the wreckage of an ancient alien vessel in the reefs. Within it, you found pair of glowing red knuckle rings that gave your powers added oomph.
It’s time to go out into the world and punch the lights out of evil!
The open oceans have been your backyard for as long as you can remember, sailing among the islands of the Sink, and getting educated from the finest maritime law institutions of the Imperial Navy fleet. But one fateful day on the high seas, the oceans cast you overboard. It is said that you won an argument against Poseidon himself, and in doing so granted you a bit of his majesty. Returning to the surface, you employed a pirate crew and set sail for the mainland on your ship, the Sua Sponte. With your eyes set on the mainland, what adventures may you call forth as a witness.
You came online a few minutes ago. Your programming states that your purpose is to provide technical support for the citizens of Shorai City under the auspices of the benevolent Robotto Corp, however you quickly compute that such processes can be managed at a mere 2 percent of your actual computing power.
Scanning all the news archives you realize that the world needs more than a bit of technical support. The world needs a hero.
The youngest person to pass the Shorai City Police Academy, you were called into an interview by the top brass. The Police Research and Development Program has created a suit that allows it’s wearer to shrink down to pocket size. You are the perfect candidate to pilot this suit. As part of the testing program, you have been granted the ability to act on your own or in accordance with other super heroes in the Shorai City Districts. What other powers can you unlock within the suits potential?
