Red Venus and Spice - A duo of PL10, Tier 2 villainesses

Recommended Posts

These two were the main villains of a M&M adventure I came up with, but I never played. I based the crunch on Ecalsneerg's archetypes of the Energy Controller and Gadgeteer, slightly modified.

The second villainess is called Splice, the name in the thread title is a spelling mistake... :(

Affiliations: Diana "Splice" Broebuck

Gender: Female
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Height: 173 cm

Red Venus is a slender woman in her thirties, with pale skin and high cheekbones. In combat she dresses in a skintight red catsuit and unmasked, with her long straight red hair tied in a high ponytail.

Power Descriptions:


Red Venus can summon flames from her body, throwing them around in fireballs. She can also fly, and summon a cloud of smoke around her.



Red Venus was born as Vera Erwin in 1980 in Los Angeles, and her life was quite normal until she manifested as a mutant in 1994, displaying the ability to manipulate fire. Ms. Erwin always showed a great distaste for men, but she didn't start committing criminal acts against them until early 2010. Since then, her behavior became increasingly violent and anti-social, until she attacked and murdered a Mr. Frank Tabbart in August 2010, accusing him of having been abusive towards a woman in public.

She associated with Diana "Splice" Broebuck in December 2010, when the two kidnapped Splice's father, and murdered him in a gruesome fashion.


The pair's base was assaulted in 2011 by a superhero team. The squad found out the two had been capturing men and experimenting on them, in an attempt to create a biological weapon that could target males only.


After her apprehension, Red Venus was determined to suffer from a severe case of schyzophrenia brought on by her mutation, and sent to a dedicated psychiatric hospital for treatment. In particular, by this time, she was firmly under the delusion that all men were evil and the male sex was to be eradicated from mankind. After a number of months of fruitless treatment, in the light of repeated attepts at attacking male staff and a steady progression of her disease, she was transferred to a stasis containment facility in the Arizona desert.


Two months ago, the facility was attacked by Splice and at least another mutant, freeing Red Venus and killing most of the detention facility staff. Now the two of them are out in the open again, and they're bound to be up to no good.


Personality & Motivation:


Before taking on the identity of the Red Venus, Vera Erwin already had a negative view of men. Over time, though, her mental illness took a larger and larger grip on her mind.

Today, she's a deranged and unstable person, affected by the delusional idea that each and every man in the world is evil and a threat to women. At best, he needs to be enslaved, and at worst eliminated.

Red Venus is deeply and morbidly in love with Splice, and will do anything to protect her.

Powers & Tactics:


Red Venus is a terrorist through and through. She usually targets people or organizations that she perceives as dangerous to women, and attacks them without mercy and in a very spectacular fashion, usually through her fire control abilities. She also resorts to more conventional terror weapons including conventional bombs, sniping and biological and chemical warfare.

When confronted in a direct fight, she usually uses her fire manipulation powers to hit her enemies with all her power. Should she need to retreat, she can summon a cloud of smoke to cover her retreat.

Character Name: Splice
Power Level: 10
Trade-Offs: -2 Attack / +2 Damage, -2 Defense / +2 Toughness

In Brief: Mad scientist bent on enslaving or eradicating the male sex


Residence: Unknown
Base of Operations: Unknown

Alternate Identity: Diana Broebuck
Identity: Public
Birthplace: Flagstaff
Affiliations: Vera "Red Venus" Erwin

Age: 25
Gender: Female
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Height: 167 cm
Weight: 56 Kg
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Chestnut


Splice is a young, unremarkably looking young woman with sharp brown eyes and short brown hair. In combat she wears a lightweight jumpsuit and a ton of odd looking gadgets.

Power Descriptions:


Splice is a genius inventor with vast knowledge in both technical and biological subjects. She built and uses a large array of devices, and can create new ones as needed.



Diana Broebuck was born in 1989 in Flagstaff, but her family moved to Freedom when she was a little girl. Once in her teens, she manifested mutant powers under the form of an improved intellect and memory, and enrolled in Claremont High, where she graduated in 2008 with flying colors.

Alas, Claremont alumni can fall to evil too. A couple of years after graduating from high school, Diana met Red Venus and quickly fell for the charismatic older woman, becoming her lover and her most devoted follower.

Not much is known about her since then. People who met her before the Red Venus's capture described the two as having a very close, almost morbid romance, and Splice having apparently been completely captured by her partner's charisma.


When their base was stormed in 2011, Splice evaded capture and disappeared, likely having found a way out of the country.

Two months ago, Splice appeared again when she stormed the containment facility in Arizona where the Red Venus was confined, setting her free. Eight of the ten guards on duty at the time were killed mercilessly, while the other two - the only women - where spared. The exact way Splice managed to access the facility in the first place, and to neutralize the automated defenses, is still unknown but is likely a result of one or more of her devices.


Personality & Motivation:


Splice is utterly devoted to Red Venus's cause, although the reasons behind her loyalty are unclear. Dedicated to the extreme, Splice is the more stable counterpart to her more passionate lover.

Powers & Tactics:


Splice is the brain to Red Venus's heart. She's thought to be the responsible for the development of most of the tools and weapons the pair has been using, and government analysts fear it could be well within her capabilities to build a weapon of mass destruction, should she have access to the proper materials. When in battle, she makes use of every single trick and device to get an advantage, and teams up with her partner in shooting from afar. However, differently from Red Venus, she's known to resort to stealth and subtlety in her terror attacks.
