Supers! RED – Randomly Generated Superheroes

Wherein your humble scribe presents a fantastical quartet of randomly generated superheroes for the recently released Supers! Revised Edition. This nifty evolution of Simon Washbourne’s Supers! includes a random generator in its Appendix 3, so that’s what I used. Minor editing of the characters after generation occurred, but when I say minor I mean minor. These four are pretty much exactly as I rolled them.

And there came a day unlike any other. A random day. And on that day four mighty heroes joined forces to defend the world from those who would prey upon it. Quickstudy, whose powers were unlocked by a mystical tome she discovered while researching her graduate thesis. Sunburst, a beautiful mutant as radiant as the sun. El Oso, a man cursed to live life as a bear, who serves good in the hope of having this curse lifted one day. And The Weatherman, whose amazing scientific gadgets allow him complete control over the atmosphere.

Beware, evildoers. You face… The Four!
