Inverse-powers-a-verse

So in a recent episode, a letter writer wrote in asking about a world in which the powers of the heroes and villains were inverted, and that actually gave me some pretty cool ideas

 

Bunker, instead of being a man piloting a suit, was part of an experimental program to save the brain of a combat veteran onto a chip. That chip can now be implanted into an adaptable biological construct that can change to best fit its surroundings and is now the amazing Adaptor

 

Benchmarch, instead of being a corporate backed hero with a cutting edge super suit, is a crowd funded online hero fan calling back to the golden age when the heroes were just better then all these crappy Johnny come lately and uses the money to remake old gadgets and gimmicks as the hero Throwback

 

Absolute zero now wears a suit to limit the burning inferno inside from making his environment deadly to everyone else as Melting Point.

Legacy is the latest in a line of demi-gods stretching back into the annuals of history who has arisen time and again to save the world, but each generation sacrifices a bit of power, losing one ability the pervious one had while needing to struggle against ever worsening odds

 

The Matriarch finds a pair of magical boots that allows her to control all animals that burrow under the ground to do her evil bidding

 

Expatriate is a master swordswoman, while the Operative is a master markswoman

Proletariat can absorb people into himself, gaining their strength, abilities and memories

The green grocer can throw exploding bacon and other meat products as the boisterous butcher

Feel free to suggest others!


Remember, don't turn that frown upside down! Turn it into Eldritch Power to summon our Dark Master to Spite a world that has wronged you.

Fanatic would be a nihalistic solipsimist who "dose not belive in anything" and can ignore anything she dose not want to pay attention to

 

Setback of course would just be lucky 

 

cult of gloom would be trying to send the entity home instead of summon 

instead of fear it would be being of ecstatic joy, still dangerous, causing recklessness and distraction

the cult would not worship it, it would be like a sheep they would collect magic wool then send it back and wait for it to return collect and send it back to the feild

 

Wraith would be a celebrity able to make people pay attention to her

Visionary would be time traveler from the past tryinh to stop a bad future caused by her descendants- Physical power house instead of psionics

instead of Ra God of the sun we would have Nyx goddess of night

Tempest would be Tremor an earth/stone shaper creating earth quakes, rock walls and throwing boulders 

Night Mist could be a tech hero with a rainbow aura force feild 

Idealist would be a psychic leach drawing creativity and initative from targets ( she could still be a hero- a thug wants to fight but forgets to draw his gun )

Medico could be a necrotic ghost

Writhe would be a living beam of light 

instead of big and strong Mainstay could be intangible

oposite Voss instead of genetic manipulation as a mad scientist would be a psychologist cult leader using brainwashing, and indoctrination to transform his followers on a mental level allowing them to surpass their normal limits and obey Voss to the death
