17212Meet the Legion of Justice
- Mar 18, 2014
Here's a quick rundown on the Legion
Canary, Reginae (Gina) Lance,
Appearance: an attractive, athletic young woman with short blonde hair, wearing a rather outré indigo outfit,
Powers: sonic powers (including super ventriloquism and enhanced hearing), hyper agility, incredible courage and determination, superior hand-to-hand combatant.
History: the oldest current member of the Legion of Justice. She has been a Legionnaire since she was 13, and she started in the Legion Academy at 8. The rest of the team considered her as something of a martinet.
Kid Terrific, Cathy Beamish
Appearance: an attractive, athletic young woman, with long red hair, wearing a garish skintight red, yellow and green outfit, with a yellow triangle on the outfit's torso that reads "Fair Play" in stylized script. Cathy never wanted to be a hero before she was drafted into the Legion and has no emotional attachment to the Fair Play legacy - ie, she has been known to cheat.
Powers: an incredible athlete and highly skilled in hand to hand combat. She has an implanted memory enhancer that allows her to mentally access external databases. In her belt are hundreds of memory modules, each containing a database with information on any subject she thinks a Legionnaire might need. She has a library of thousands of memory modules.
History: very few people can tolerate the implanted memory module, and only about 1 in a billion can use it as naturally as her own brain. Cathy is one of those rare individuals.
Star Lass, Theresa Knight
Appearance: a dark haired beauty, quite short, wearing a black bodysuit that seemed to shimmer like a night sky full of stars. When she flies, she lives behind a sparkling golden trail.
Powers: she can generate a shimmering golden force field which can create various effects, she can fly, and she can increase and decrease the weight of things.
History: She is a physicist and descendent of Ted Knight. She has a Cosmic Rod surgically implanted in her body. Her weight control powers are natural; perhaps she is a mutation due to her family's long association with the Cosmic Rod. She is currently the most powerful member of the Legion.
Sandy, the Golden Boy
Appearance: A large humanoid made of gold, wearing green shorts, with green bands on his wrists, ankles and neck. He likes to wear whimsical accessories such as bush hats.
Powers: his body is actually made of gold, and he can stretch and reshape his body almost infinitely. He can absorb gold into his body by touching it, and he can withdraw his life force from 'excess' gold in his body and then 'shed' that no longer living gold. He loses control of his body when it is melted. A natural leader, with good natural wisdom.
History: Sandy is an Auron, an alien from a desert planet, and the first nonhuman ever allowed in the Legion.
Greenfire, Drake Burroughs
Appearance: a visored figure in a dark green and black bodysuit, surrounded by a green glowing aura when using his powers, leaves behind a blazing emerald streak when he flies.
Powers: merged with the 'Starheart', the source of power for the 20th Century Green Lantern, he can fire energy power blasts and fly. He can potentially create energy objects, grow, shrink, walk through walls, translate languages, and should be the most powerful member of the Legion
History: Drake is trained as a scientist, and everyone thought he had a brilliant career ahead of him. He was working as a research assistant when there was an explosion which vaporized the Starheart and his body. He almost died before he managed to meld his mind with the mystical green energy. As soon as it was realized that he was still alive, the government drafted him into the Legion. Drake is aware that his 'accident' was probably deliberately planned by Amgov. He is perpetually angry at being forced to live as an energy being trapped inside a containment suit. At one time, Drake was forced to take refuge inside the ancient ring of the original Green Lantern, and his energies can power the ring and be used by someone wearing it. Drake doesn't like being trapped in the Power Ring, as he is unable to use his own will to control his own energy. The Power Ring is currently sealed inside his containment suit.
Timepiece, Rexford (Rex) Tyler
Appearance: Rex had once been a handsome, athletic young man, of medium height, with curly brown hair and a cheerful face. However, several years ago, he was poisoned, which robbed him of the use of his arms and legs. Now he is tall and thin, withered and frail, usually found in a high technology flying chair.
Powers: His chair has various prosthetics that responded to vocal commands including waldos. The chair has antigravity and flight capabilities. Rexford has the natural chronal ability to remain one second out of synch with linear time while observing the present. He can also use his power to create time loops
History: When Rex started doing research into prohibited areas of science and physics, notably time travel, one of his Legion Academy classmates, Coquette, a shape shifter, also known as 'Clothes Fall Off Girl' attempted to seduce and subvert him, following orders given by General Urbane. When he wasn't interested, Amgov had him poisoned. As his limbs began to fail, terrified at the thought of spending the rest of his life paralyzed, Rex turned his genius level intelligence to developing prosthetics that might allow him to at least care for himself. Once his floatchair was completed, he turned to cybernetics, and constructed the intelligent computer Gernsbeck.
Powers: An intelligent computer, with subspace, radio and time communications capabilities. Gernsbeck can create Boom tubes, and monitor the past.
History: built by Rex Tyler on Earth, then merged with the more advanced computers at Knight Base after the Legion of Justice escaped from Amgov. Merging with the Knight Base computers expanded Gernsbeck's powers tremendously.
TeleTeen, Tommy Tamare
Appearance: a tall thin boy with a large head, totally bald.
Powers: telekinesis. Legion scientists theorize that he should also be capable of telepathy and other mental feats and that additional powers will manifest with physical maturity and practice.
History: his parents are assigned to the research base on Saturn's moon of Titan, and Tommy is a mutant. Tommy is shy and withdrawn. He and Chemique have developed a strong mutual attraction.
Appearance: Asian, with short dark hair, wearing a burnt orange and green uniform, orange mask that left her hair uncovered, with gray elbow-length gloves and thigh high boots.
Powers: as an android built of synthetic materials, she is more durable, stronger and faster than normal humans. She has conscious control over her emotions, and can damp them down almost to nothing when required. Miqui can control chemical reactions. Legion scientists theorize that she may have other chemistry-related powers, such as elemental transmutation and the ability to transform the chemical composition of her own body. If her powers manifest as predicted, she may become the most powerful Legionnaire. She can use her powers to change the chemical composition of her body and hair, thus giving her limited powers of disguise.
History: Miqui is 15, and the first android ever allowed to become a member of the Legion of Justice. Her body duplicates exactly every human feature and function, including growth and again. She must eat special food composed of the chemicals her body needs. She wasn't supposed to have super powers, but when she reached adolescence and her body started to change, unexpected powers appeared. Miqui has an inferiority complex because she's not a 'real' person. Miqui is the leader of the Legion Stealth Squad and is starting to gain confidence as she realizes she has real talent for leadership and espionage.
Hour Boy, Randall (Rand) Tyler (Rexford's brother)
Appearance: Looks much like Rexford, his older brother, but he works out constantly and has the physique of a body builder. Rand wears a skin-tight body suit, brown with darker brown highlights, with an hourglass emblem on the chest.
Powers: Randall can 'dive' backwards into time. He can move backwards for up to an hour. Once he reaches the 'depth' he has selected, time passes normally for him and he returns to the present. While he is in the past, is remains a time phantom, invisible, immaterial and undetectable, able to see and hear everything that goes on around him, but affect nothing. He can move freely as a phantom, and pass through physical objects, up to a top speed of just under the speed of sound. He can carry about 50 pounds of stuff back in time with him. However, as soon as that stuff loses contact with him, it immediately pops to the surface, i.e., returns to the present. Hour Boy can't dive further when he is already in the past, and after each dive, he needs to rest one minute for each minute he just spent in the past. He gets sick if he spends too much time in the past, his limit is about an hour every 24 hours. He is also a highly skilled ordinance designer and engineer, building all his own equipment, and is the weaponer of the Legion.
History: Fiercely protective of his older brother. He has similar intellectual potential as Rex, but has never been forced to develop his mind. Instead, he has spent hours developing his physique, hoping that the physical problem that affected Rex would not touch him. He is highly skilled in demolition and weapons, and a very good observer, and a good fighter with the ability to spring a devastating surprise on an opponent, for example vanishing from in front of the opponent and instantly appearing behind that opponent. When he first became interested in science at the Legion Academy, he was seduced by an older cadet, Coquette (a.k.a. Clothes Fall Off Girl) and she led him so far astray he almost flunked out. People not involved in the relationship thought she did it in revenge on Rex, which was probably true, but she was acting on orders of General Urbane.
Hawk Boy, Horus (a future reincarnation of Hawkman)
Appearance: A Fetherian. Tawny brown-feathered figure
Powers: fly, talk with birds, use his scream as a weapon, has vicious claws on hands and feet. Horus has incredible vision and stamina, and always knows exactly where he is. This knowledge, plus his incredible reflexes, makes him a superb air and space pilot. He hates being underground and has trouble controlling his claustrophobia in enclosed places.
History: One of the youngest Legionnaires, he was allowed into the Academy after Sandy showed that nonhumans could be successful. He is fierce and almost single-minded, although the ancient soul of Hawkman is mellowing him. Tends to hiss when he talks. He only recently found out he is descended from a nabt earlier heroes: the legendary Feitherian hero Northwind on his father's side, and Green Lanterns 1, 2 and 3, Harlequin, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman and Odysseus, Fury, Silver Scarab, and Silverbird. He doesn't yet know the details. But the Power Ring used by Alan Scott (Green Lantern 1) and his descendents, Adam Jason Scott (Green Lantern 2) and Shayera Scott (Green Lantern 3) was discovered in the house of Hawk Boy's parents.
Heroic Name: WildCat
Real Name: unpronounceable; means 'challenger who screams and leaps', nickname 'Chall'
Appearance: Challenger is a member of the Puman species. He looks like a panther standing on two legs, though his face is as expressive as a human face.
Powers: Enhanced strength, speed, agility, ability to jump long distances (30' and more), enhanced smell, sight and hearing.
History: From the planet Elaigar, where the felines evolved into the dominant intelligent species. WildCat has a fetish for human females. Has trouble speaking English, tends to extend the Rs (overrrrrrrrrrrr) and the Es (weeeeeeee).
