Digging the costume's look.

 

I'm enjoying the whole "mixed-race son of Superior" thing. I would be correct in guessing you mean Prime's Superior, yes? If so, that makes things extra fun, since that would make him the half-brother of Ultiwoman, and the (soon to be maybe depending on when we get around to it) half-brother-in-law of Cobalt Templar!

 

Build seems pretty solid, offhand. Pretty straightforward blasty Kryptonian type, really. I'm guessing you're looking to expand Telepathy to more than 1 power later on? Since right now, it's technically an Array but can't "switch" to anything?

Thanks. I really wanted the costume to invoke this trope (about the only color trope I haven't played with yet), and the cape definitely invoked it. I wound up going with basic black for the body because anything other than black or white seemed to combine with the cape to be visually overwhelming. Even having the opposite-wheel gold as more than minor accents seemed too busy. Definitely open to input on the costume design. Visual design has never been my strong suit (I even think in text).

Yeah, I meant Earth-Prime Superior. The idea was that he was Kal-Zed's illegitimate grandson, with Mom having fled Germany during or after WWII and having kept the biological father's identity a secret. I did the math and realized the timing would line up perfectly. It wasn't until after I brainstormed it in chat that I learned that you guys had decided that Quo-Dis's was his daughter, and he'd be her nephew. (If I do end up using this guy, lemme know if that backstory, or this guy's powers, are too much overlap with Cobalt Templar and/or Ultiwoman. That did cross my mind.) I was just thinking that most Ultiman PCs and NPCs grew up in Ultima Thule, so it's be an interesting twist to have one who grew up among normal humans, totally ignorant of his Hyperborean origins. He's basically an Invincible homage, with the Ultimans (and Superior in particular) as the Viltrumites. Superior's bastard child having then paired up with a brown person is just sticking it to him that much more for my personal amusement.

Yes, straightforward blasty Kryptonian type is exactly it, with Samaritan's energy web for added utility. I don't have any straightforward flying bricks, and I haven't gotten to play around much with Create Object, which has always been one of my favorite M&M powers (it's so versatile it's practically a variable pool!). The only purpose of the telepathy is for ease of communication while in open space. No plan to expand upon it. I just like the array bookkeeping style, and find it easier to power stunt off of it when I have it written out like that.

Didn't like having to take drawbacks, and would probably buy them off first, but, y'know, points. They're straight-up Superman. But drawback or complication, it just doesn't feel right to give him this much raw power without having one or two Achilles Heels.

Haven't decided if I want to do this guy or bring back Thrude when I hit my next vet reward tier (8PP away...). Figured I'd get him on paper.

Well, I'm not the best costume designer around here, but offhand my only suggestion would be a bit of something on the lower torso-ish. Not necessarily outside-undies, but maybe a simple pattern right above the belt to break up the black a bit more. Otherwise I think it works really well.

Son, grandson, amusement remains.

As for overlap, not really. You're free to scope out Quo-Dis's sheet in the NPC forum but this guy's different enough that's not a big deal, and the potential family drama is absolutely hilarious to me.

Fair enough on all points. I think it's really solid all around. I think this guy or Thrude could be fun, either way.
