UNISYSTEM WRITE-UPS:

MARVEL

This page contains write-ups of famous characters from Marvel comic books for the Unisystem Lite (the previous Full Unisystem write-up can be found here). Obviously, some traits have to be created from scratch, especially where super-heroes are concerned. These will be revisioned as Eden Studios releases the generic system books.

Due to different power levels represented in the Marvel Universe and the DC Universe, some write-ups will have notes at the end to adjust the power level of a character in case you want to insert him or her into a DC-based campaign.

Clicking on the images will take you to the charcater's offical bio at Marvel.

Languages:

Combat Moves:
Shield-Bounce 12
Possessions:
Adamantium-Vibranium Shield [AV 100], Modern Chainmail vest [AV 10, No Encumbrance (Normal bullets do not halve its AV)]
Notes:
The shield’s AV value is optional. As I understand it, if Cap successfully blocks an attack with the shield, he takes no damage, since it’s unbreakable and capable of dispersing kinetic energy (at least it was, until a few years ago). He cannot use it for attack and defense in the same Turn, either one or the other. The shield’s damage is usually blunt, but Cap can wield it so it does slashing AP damage (a modifier of -2 might apply). In games where there’s a distinction between bashing and lethal damage, the slashing shield is killing.

To simulate Cap’s shield-bouncing maneuver, apply a cumulative -2 for every bounce after the first. It usually takes a minimum of two bounces to make the shield return. Every bounce after after the first also decreases the damage multiplier by 1. Example: Cap wants to hit two A.I.M. goons by throwing his shield and having it return to him. The Chronicler tells him that will require an extra bounce, so the final penalty is -4, 0 for the first goon, -2 for the second and another -2 to make the shield return. Cap rolls a 6 and adds his Dex of 6 and Hand Weapons (Shield) of 12, and subtracts 4, for a final result of 18. Cap hits the two goons, the first one taking 23 and the second one 16. Had Cap scored only 19 (a real bad day for him :), he would still have hit the A.I.M. goons and gotten his shield back.

Book of the Vishanti, Cloak of Levitation, Darkhold, Eye of Agamotto, Orb of Agamotto
Notes:
Based on this line from the Armageddon book "A few people with "freakish" Attributes may exceed it (to level 7)", I decided to give Strange a Willpower of 7. All sources state that Strange is a normal human despite all his powers. However, in order to survive and keep his sanity as Sorcerer Supreme of Earth, he must have the strongest Willpower possible in the human race, hence the 7.

I'm still working on converting this section to ULite. For now, assume the WitchCraft Invocations are treated as the conversio rules from The Magic Box.
