Welcome to the first in a series: Item Power Sets. Item Power Sets are Power Sets that can be applied to any hero or villain, and just as easily be removed as the item changes hands. Item Power Sets are not small, minor items like Daredevil’s Billy Clubs or Captain America’s shield (though you could easily transfer the Power Set over to another character). These are items of great power, ones which can shape a campaign.
There are few things in the universe that compare to the sheer power of a Cosmic Cube.
You will note that the Cube has Godlike Reality Control. Reality Control works just like Mimic, in that the power is able to be any other power in the game at the will of the user. It is Flight, Durability, Strength and more, all rolled into one.
In addition, the Cube gives its user Cosmic Master as a Specialty, something standard Power Sets do not.
Cosmic Control Rod
This Item Power Set comes to us from the Negative Zone. The Cosmic Control Rod is the source of Annihilus’s power, but also his greatest weakness. If the heroes are able to take it from him, its power is theirs for the taking.
I imagine Annihilus and his Cosmic Control Rod will be detailed in the upcoming Annihilation Event, but I wanted to present the item now how I see it. I may put up Annihilus’s sometime soon, with this Power Set attached.
The Symbiote has been a popular “character” since its debut in the 1980′s. In recent years, its abilities have been expanded and further explained, including its ability to leech off of its host’s adrenal glands.
The Symbiote presented here has some similarities to the Symbiote Spawn in the Basic Game, but I’ve made some heavy changes. If your character gets consumed by the Symbiote, just add on this Item Power Set to his Datafile.
The Crimson Gem of Cyttorak
Oh, ambition. What a cruel taskmaster.
Life Model Decoy
A “Get Out of Death Free” card.
Secret War Items: Fury Issued Kree-Tech Armor and Failsafe
These items were designed for our Secret War event.
Casket of Ancient Winters
The big McGuffin from the Thor movie. The Casket of Ancient Winters introduces two new SFX.
What, no Infinity Gems? 😉
Patience, my friend. 🙂 In due time.
But, but, but, I want everything NOW! (whine) :-p
Some cool stuff here Mark, keep up the good work! 🙂
Five years later…
I’ve been working on some of these myself. I thought it’d be interesting to have an “armory” of things characters can have. Nova power set, Cap’s shield, Punisher’s arsenal, Quantum Bands (although hard to remove), Captain Marvel (well, Rick Jones had him equipped!), Crimson Gem, Mjolnir/Stormbreaker, Belt of Strength, Space Knight armor, so on. I see you’ve started this all your lonesome.
Do you guys take donated datafiles? I think it’d be neat to have an entire suite of this stuff readily available.
Very nice, I would like to see the whole thing! Already saw a lot of villains and heroes, but not these items!
Could you do Power Sets of Eternal Earth characters, like Ikaris or Sersi, please?
I wanted to suggest to Power Set focused on Transmutation power, please, too.
