reflex -

Devlin O'Ryan born on naltor with a different gift than most naltorians. his prophecy powers are more fine tuned to the nerve impulses of his body. He has the for-sight of super auto reflex's. Allowing him to never be hit by any attack, whether physical or energy based. This has also added to his agility and fighting skill.

Auditioning for the Legion when he turned 15; which was about the same time that Dream Girl was resigning; meaning a naltorian representative was needed for the team.

Having to audition along side Dream Boy; whose powers were more similar to Dream Girl's; was a challenge.

He knew he could be a good fit for the Legion. He could reflexively save any one of their lives.
But the Legion chose Dream Boy.
Dream Girl took young Devlin aside and told him to never give up and that she though he should enroll in the Academy. She said she had a dream about him being a big help to the Legion one day.
Devlin listened to Dream Girl's advice and enrolled in the Academy.
He honed his skills to the point that he began to gain true precognition in the sense that he could anticipate an adversary's movements up to four strikes/hits before.

Devlin did eventually com to the Legion's aid, on the day when he saved Dream Boy from being attacked by the Persuader, by drawing his attention and using his reflex to not get hit, combined with his four moment precognition, and fighting skills he disarmed the Persuader.

Nice one Omni.

Set, I did not know that of Gliese. I just went looking for real planet names to use and I liked Gliese.

Ord Quelu was one of the mutants of Lallor. His mutant power allowed his to emanate a mental field that would cause beings in the field to duplicate his actions. If he sat down, they would sit down. The large a field he projected, the less will power was needed to break his control. He could also concentrate all his mental energy on one individual.

The Lallorain government sent Duplicate Boy along with several other Lallorian mutants to try out for the Legion of Superheroes. Ord was offered a spot in the Legion Academy. He turned it down, preferring to return to Lallor.


Ord eventually started a side business of leading Flash Mobs.

I like the combat precognition, they kinda touched on that with threeboot Dreamy but it's not something she has used a lot outside of that series.

Here is an alternate Tellus! On the methane-rich world Hykraius lives a strange symbiotic creature called the Ganglios. The Ganglios' host body is a sturdy yellow creature who ranges from 10 to 16 feet long from its head to the base of its tail. It is strong and its hide is tough, but it is practically mindless and wouldn't even possess the basic capacity to search for food if it weren't for the brightly-colored fungus which grows like crusty pods on its back. The fungus is a hive mind capable of co-opting the host body's nervous system to think for it and control its motor skills. While the fungus thrives on the host body's waste byproducts, it ensures that the host has an intelligence to find food, shelter and generally stay alive.

One of the Ganglios came across the Legion of Superheroes when they fought their Gil'Dishpan enemy Zymyr in Hykraius' waters. It was instrumental in the Legion's success and they inspired it to leave its world to study at the Legion Academy. The Ganglios had to give itself an Interlac name when it left its homeworld so settled on Tellus, which refers to the shared fungal consciousness of Hykraius.

Tellus eventually graduated to join the Legion, though remains a mystery to many of its humanoid teammates. Its hive mind renders it immune from any kind of telepathy (though it can be unusually susceptible to attacks designed to affect a body's nervous system), and the Tellus share a kind of eidetic fungal memory where everything the fungus has encountered is permanently recorded in its memory. The Tellus are one of the few creatures in the universe who can truly say they remember their evolution to consciousness. Tellus can implant spores in other biological forms, though requires skin contact if not in a liquid environment and the spores die after a couple of hours on non-compatible life forms. These spores allow Tellus to then track the host, tap into its nervous system for a full sensory record of its actions and to even to scan the host's body for poisons or other outside agents. Technically Tellus has the power to control other host bodies completely, but the Ganglios bond is seen as something sacred and it would be considered incredibly blasphemous to have that kind of total connection with a different life form. Tellus therefore restricts its symbiotic connection to observation and tracking, and relies on the Ganglios' natural size and strength for combat.

Raz really good take on Tellus. I really liked how your kept the appearance the same but changed the nodes and gave them a real function as the true intelligence of Tellus.


and its true they haven't used it much and i wish they would. that was a really good development of the precog ability set.

Klint Stewart wanted to be a superhero in the worst way. He wanted all the fame, the adoration, the glamour of being a superhero. And so he studied superheroes and looked for ways in which he could gain superpowers. IN his studies, Klint came across Prof. Will Magnus and his creations, the Metal Men.

Klint discovered that Will Magnus' lab had been located in a nearby section of Metropolis. After some explorations in to the depths of the old city, Klint found the lab. Of all the Metal Men, only one was left and that was Gold. The responsometer laid on a nearby table. Klint realized that if he put the responsometer in as is, he would not be the hero, but Gold would. So, he decided that he would wipe the responsometer clean and then encode his own engrams into it. Fearing that as long as his natural body was around, others would use it to stop him from being a superhero. So, Klint killed himself.

Taking the name Golden Boy, Klint tried out for the Legion of Superheroes. Instead of being impressed when he told his origin story, the Legionnaires contacted the science police. The attorneys his family hired was able to convince the jury that because Klint's engrams still existed in the robotic body, Klint was not dead and therefore not guilty of murder. There was a lack of evidence that when Klint wiped the responsometer that there were another person's engrams on it.

Golden Boy was now free, but he believed that the Legion was just jealous of his powers and had tried to make him look bad. He vowed revenge against the Legion.

Sizzle-

On the day Sun Boy and Inferno went super nova to save the galaxy from the Sun Eater, using their combined light and fire to draw the Sun Eater away from the real sun. As the Sun Eater consumed them their powers burst out from them along with a bomb created by Brianiac 5 to implode and absorb all the radiant energy it was going to cast upon the galaxy into a tromian crystal sphere that Sun Boy was holding.

When all the commotion and combustion all that was left was the tromian crystal sphere. Brianiac 5, set Element Lad and Dragonmage to collect the sphere. But something unexpected happened. The crystal sphere had morphed into a humanoid female form. Her skin was a deep red, with glistening pale green crystal finger tips and hair.

It seems when the Sun Eater had started absorbing Sun Boy and Inferno, the Bomb had activated at the same time. The crystal sphere absorbed the Sun Eater and the legionnaires life energies as well as their powers.
the crystal's properties combined with the bomb and the life energies of Sun Boy and Inferno that it created a new life form.

Dragonmage and Element Lad brought her back to Legion World. Brainiac 5 analyzed the new being before him, as Saturn Girl did a mental evaluation of the still unconscious female.

Saturn Girl determined that whoever this was it wasn't reincarnated or a merged version of their fallen fellow Legionaries.

Brainiac 5 discovered that the energy from the Sun Eater and the Legionaries have been combined into the crystal and the implosion of the bomb technology was keeping in sustained with in the crystal. But he couldn't however explain why the crystal morphed into a female.

Slowly coming around, Brainy and Saturn girl began running test to determine her health and psychosocial standing. During the test there was a large amount of energy out put coming from her. Unsure of what the energy was they cautiously had her do various energy cast. Each time though the energy was different. First she sparked lighting, then flares of flam and then blinding kaleidoscope of light. Seeing that she had very limited control as her thoughts were still chaotic with adjusting to life.
Saturn girl suggested she learn some calming techniques from Impulse to help her control her powers more.

As more time went on and the more they studied her, they realized that her excess energy wasn't infinite and she needed to be recharged from time to time. She could hold a charge for up to 5 days depending on how much she used it.

Brainy theorized that if she didn't get a recharge she might die. but this was determined to be false, when Golden Boy had taken over Legion World to get his revenge. She was locked away for almost two weeks without a recharge. but she was still alive.

After several months on Legion World, the crystal finally took a name calling herself Sizzle and applied for Legion membership. with really nowhere else to go and still wanting to keep an eye on her the Legion accepted her as a detached member like M'Onel. They try to use her sparingly, as to allow her to explore the galaxy and not over exert herself.

Turtle-

Bogdan Tarka was from the planet Doopa. He was from a race of time manipulators; each gifted with a different variation on time manipulation. Bogdan was has the ability to slow down time. He has a time aura that extends out when he concentrate to slow down time with in a mile radius. he can narrow this ability on to specific people, which is a very exulted discipline on Doopa.
this affect makes it seem like he can move at super speed.

this ability was hidden from everyone outside their race though, as they knew it would attract many who would want to travel to the past or the future, thinking that they have that capability. But none of them possesses that ability. They also feared being used for criminal activity, as they are a race of pacifists.

But now the U.P. has entered their lives and they have requested a draftee for Legion of Super heroes. As the Doopains don't want to expose their racial gift, they have chosen Bogdan as tr representative and have him pose as a super speedster mutant.

originally taking the name of Blindspot, as people didn't see him move. Bogdan eventually became the Turtle after his race's time manipulation powers were discovered. The leader of the Dark Circle Starfinger discovered the planet abilities while he was trying to establish a secret base their. bringing in his forces full forces he enslaved the Doopains. By forcing the Doopains to use their abilities more often, it caused a time rift that was radiating from the planet outward. because of his own powers Bogdan felt the shifts in time and eventually the world starting to experience time shifts, with versions of various Legion's through out time appearing, as well as various animals and people through out time. most only appearing for seconds at a time. The times shifts became stronger and started to last longer.

Bogdan and the Legion went to Doopa to find out what was going on. As they got closer the time shifts were stronger and versions of the Legionaries showed up. with The alternate Legionaries lasting longer and becoming allies in the effort to stop Starfinger and the Dark Circle. The battle seemed like it raged for years but was only a mere two days.

It was Bogdan who was finally exposed as a time manipulator and his abilities pushed to their limits, that allowed him to defeat Starfinger and their forces by literally freezing time around the entire planet. Canceling out the times shift from radiating outward. He was able to cast it so that the Legion wasn't frozen and could disperse the Dark Circle's forces.

Bogdan used the last bit of his energy to trap Starfinger in a localized time loop, essentially freezing him. Afterwards Bogdan took a break from the Legion to recuperate and help his world heal. As word hadn't reached the rest of the U.P. that the people of Doopa were time manipulators and were the cause of all the time shifts. the Legion agreed to keep its secrets. Saturn Girl and The White With used their powers to wipe the minds of all the Dark Circle members and troops.

Bogdan eventually returned to the Legion, to keep suspicion from being aroused about his people. But he knew that he was revealed as a time manipulator and thus changed His code name to The Turtle.

Gossamer was the code name Ngel Varru picked for herself. Although she was from Bgztl like Phantom Girl and had the power to become intangible, she had an additional power that other Bgztlians did not have. She could make herself weightless. She hoped that this extra power would allow her to join despite duplicating Phantom Girl's power.

However, Brainiac 5 explained how with their flight rings and Light Lass' power to make everything weightless, her power did not qualify her for Legion Membership. As she started walking away, Saturn Girl called out "Wait". She and Dream Girl had a private chat and then Imra asked Ngel to train at the Legion Academy. Although she had her doubts Gossamer agreed. Later Gossamer found out that at the tryouts, Dream Girl had a vision of Gossamer fighting along side the Legion and Phantom Girl in a Legion uniform.

After 6 months of training, Saturn Girl came to Gossamer and said that Phantom Girl was taking a leave of absence and that they would like her to fill in for Tinya. Gossamer readily agreed and for 7 months worked, lived, and fought with the other Legionnaires. When it was time for Phantom Girl to return to the team, the Legionnaires didn't want Gossamer to leave. So they re-wrote the Legion Constitution regarding duplicate powers. Now if an applicant has a power that an existing Legionnaire has, the applicant can be accepted into the Legion Academy. After passing the Academy's training, the applicant would be tested and, if they pass, are made a Legion Reservist. Then if the Legionnaire with the same power is incapacitated or takes a leave of absence, the Reserve Member will fill in. If the Reserve Member proves their worth, they will be allowed to remain in the Legion proper when the original member returns.

On the war torn world of Braal, the population had been reduced to almost nothing. approximate numbers were around no more than 1000 people left. After the numerous wars and the anti-magnet bomb; which cast a bio-magnetic frequency. there were few left who still had their magnetism intact, never mind fully functional.

with the planet left in shambles and little resources, they have become mostly nomadic tribes. traveling the vast deserts that span most of the continents: these areas they travel are known as the safe zones.

But rumor has it there is a city outside of the safe zone that survived the devastation and has water and food, due to a spring underneath it.

This city was home to a select few who could find it. Most couldn't make the journey through the deserts, beyond the safe zones.

But One man has been able to brave the deserts and has helped a few people find this reviving city. Becoming a bit of a ferrymen to these people. he's only known as Polestar, still having full use of his magnetic powers, he pulls full ferries of people through the deserts, riding the magnetic winds. Many can even see him riding the sands on a metal disk during the worst sandstorms.

But not everyone is as helpful as Polestar. there are a few pirate tribes that have formed. each fighting for the wasted riches of what lies beneath the desert. And just as everyone else they are struggling to find the hidden city. Polestar has become their enemy as he saves people from their thievery in the desert sands.

Polestar has now not only become the ferrymen for his people but their protector as well.

Turtle as a time manipulator sounds great, love how he uses it to pretend he has super speed.

I very much like Gossamer's story. Her powers alone don't make her particularly formidable, but I love how her hard work and dedication led to her eventual Legion membership and to the revision of the Constitution!

Polestar's alternate Braal is very interesting and dangerous. Whew! A ferrokinetic can have a lot of "fun" in a desert world.

Oh hey, this thread still exists!

.

Growing up in the ethnic Okinawan enclave of Ryukyu, on Xanthu, Tomo Kano was always fascinated by the martial arts, particularly the many exotic weapons used mostly in traditional demonstrations in the modern day. He practiced for hours with the bo staff, and honed his skills with weapons more exotic than the common kama, nunchaku or sai, such as the tekku and the surujin, but his favorite was the shuriken, practicing a leaping style where he threw the shuriken at the apex of his leap, his 'falling star strike.'

His powers manifested in an exhibition, as his 'falling stars' indeed struck with devastating force, as he had somehow imparted the entire mass of his body into the hurtling projectiles, so that he hung in the air, weightless, as they struck the target with a hundred times the expected force!

And so, new training began, as he began developing his mass manipulating talents, allowing him to leap high into the air (by reducing his own mass) or strike with a stick of wood or tiny piece of metal with over a hundred pounds of additional force, as Star Boy!

.

[This could also make for a very different update of the gravity controlling kid from the Power Pack!]

Thanks! It's all on Drake3000 for that awesome Legion of Ninja series he drew, with Star Boy throwing stars. Combine 'stars' with mass manipulation, and it writes itself!

Good thread resurrecting, guys! Here's one that could also double as a hero from another world:

Ghalle Zhuhg comes from a world whose inhabitants communicate electrochemically and whom have only recently begun making diplomatic inroads with the United Planets. Even with the most up to date translators the planet's name is unpronounceable to humanoid tongues and the UP know it by an alphanumeric designate. Informally, it's also known as the Slugworld after the shambling slimy sentients that are its dominant lifeform. The most notable of these inhabitabts before Zhuhg left zir homeworld was Queeg, custodian of the so-called Science Asteroid. Inspired by stories of the universe beyond zir homeworld, Zhuhg followed Queeg's departure and tried out for the Legion of Superheroes.

Taking a cue from the Durlan Chameleon Boy, Zhuhg named zirself Lamprey after the Earth animal in the hope that it would help the Earth-centric Legion accept zir. With zir race's natural ability to secrete a toxin which drained the strength from any alien ze touched, the name fit well. The teens weren't ready for an enormous hermaphroditic slug who left a trail of slime everywhere ze went though, and almost unanimously rejected Lamprey. It was Chameleon Boy who saw Lamprey's true potential, and convinced zir not to give up. Joining the Legion Academy, Lamprey eventually learned to only produce zir slimy excretions at will. Ze tried twice more to join the Legion, and finally won them over. With an enthusiasm and a warm curiosity about the universe at odds with zir inhuman appearance, Lamprey has taught the Legion a lot about their own prejudices while becoming a steadfast member of the team. Lamprey is particularly good friends with Cham, to the extent that many Legionnaires suspect the two have a secret romance. The truth is that Lamprey's people are entirely pragmatic about mating and don't have the concept of romantic love in their society. Lamprey simply loves Cham platonically as a mentor and friend, and is often baffled by the relationship dramas so many of zir Legion friends seem to throw themselves into.

Queeg-as-Lamprey! Genius!

Also love the little details added to Queeg's hitherto undeveloped species.

living in the slums of Bismoll, a world where everyone has the ability to eat whatever they want lives a young man named Tenzil Kem scrounged to keep himself alive.
Orphaned at a young age due to the death of his parents in a car crash. young Tenzil was in the foster care system but ran away when his powers changed. Now, instead of being able to eat all matter with only his mouth, he has gained the ability to absorb all matter with a simple touch. Afraid if he touched anybody he ran away to the swears of the city where he's been trying to learn control of his new abilities. it seems his new powers are restricted to his hands and of course still through his mouth. He's learned that all the matter he eats through either one feeds his stomach and can give him booted levels of endurance and strength. But he found that his hunger was never satisfied and he always wanted more.

after several weeks in the swears trying to learn control he couldn't. during one of his fits of hunger he ate through a wall into the lair of the Devil's Dozen. they captured him, but in the process of doing so Tenzil accidentally "ate" several limbs of the Devil's Dozen. it was finally Prince Evillo who subdued him, using his hypnosis to fall asleep. while asleep he fashioned him into weapon to use to break into the vaults of Bismoll's treasury and wealthy. between his magics and Tenzil's touch they had become unstoppable.

During their biggest heist the Legion team of M'onel, Umbra, Saturn Girl, and Lady Mysa showed up to stop them. Prince Evillo used his magic and minions to distract the Legion while he had Tenzil continue on eating through the walls.

The Devil's Dozen were quickly dispatched between power house M'onel throwing them around like rage dolls. Lady Mysa deflects Prince Evillo's magics, why Saturn Girl Learns of Tenzil's brainwashing.

Princde Evillo sends Umbra to the shadow realm only to have his own portal used against him as Umbra calls forth the shadows to reopen it from her end and then attack him and pull him into his own realm. where Umbra eventually looses him.

coming back she finds all three of her teammates trying to subdue the young Tenzil. Even though Prince Evillo is far away and long gone his instructions and hypnotism remain intact. Get the money and eat who or what ever gets in your way.

the magical spell binding the hypnosis was stronger than Lady Mysa anticipated but she was able to break it allowing Saturn Girl to break the hold and commands completely. but not before M'onel got a taste of Tenzil's power, and he ate his costume. Luckily M'onel's invulnerability saved him.

Saturn Girl put him to sleep and then read his mind. discovering that he was a pawn and his powers were unstable they brought him back to Legion headquarters to try and find away to help him.

Lady Mysa new magic wouldn't be able to do much for him other than protect him from anymore mystical brainwashing's. Leaving him in the care of Brainy and Invisible Kid they studied his powers and realized that unfortunately there was no way to permanently shut off his power without aid. His body had become so accustomed t the amount of calorie intake from eating with his mouth and hands that his body wouldn't survive without the same intake. they did however invent inhibitor cuffs for him to wear which allowed him to touch people by casting a thin layer of a force field around his hands, that filters out human flesh from other types of matter that he can eat.

Having no where else to go and brainy wanting to study him he applied for membership to the Legion as Matter-Eater Lad.

Jeem Rehtu lived a fairly normal life on Preztor. a simple farmer in the mountain town of Deztee. Jeem had no aspirations beyond being a farmer. The farm he owned was his families and it had been in his family for generations. They farmed a rare plant called the Syrpus. The flower's pollen is used to create a serum that induces hallucinations in people. the serum is used on Preztor to help those with P.V.R.A.D. (post virtual reality adjustment disorder.)
Many people on Preztor have become addicted to virtual reality games. so much that people have died while in the game for lack of any real source of nutrients.

But Jeem's life as a farmer of the Syrpus ended the day the Dominators came to Preztor. on a quest to conqure more worlds tp run their experiments on to find the perfect blend of DNA to add t their own to create a meta-gene that rivals that of earth and many U.P. worlds.

The Dominators came and destroyed their world. Jeem and entire town were captured and tested on. when the Dominators found out about the properties of the Syprus flower they tested it on many of the Pretorians. the test ranged from testing the effects to manipulating their DNA to some how give the same propertes to one of the captives.

Jeem feel into the tested on group. but the Dominators found him to be immune to its affects. When they tested him further. the realized that because he and his family owned the farm for generations they ate all of the parts of the plant that wasn't harvested. Giving them a natural hallucinogen dampener, But Jeenm seems to acquired an extra ability, the ability to cause hallucinations in others with a simple touch. He can either choose a hallucination for them, as it creates a slight mental link with the other person or he can let them just hallucinate anything their minds create. The first is much harder for him to do.

Realizing they could never extract this ability from his DNA, the Dominators decided to brainwash Jeem into their own personal assassin and a guard/enforcer on his home planet. They made him use his ability to subdue various rebel factions.

eventually the U.P came to Peztor to offer them membership not knowing the Dominators had taken over. The U.P envoy was capture immediately. When the envoy didn't return as scheduled the S.P. were sent in to investigate. but they too were captured.

The Legion was called in next. When the Dominators realized the Legion was coming they were actually very excited. they were looking forward to testing their new creations and weapons on the Legion of Super Heroes. Initially the team only sent four member, Chameleon, Invisible Kid, Monstress and Blok. As forminable as they each are, they too were captured, thanks to Jeem. He attacked them early on, looking like a deranged captive. Somehow tackling each of them and touching their skin. Blok was immune to his touch as he wasn't an organic life form.

They soon realized what had happened and became of this world. They fought various other creations before Jeem powers kicked, leaving Blok to fend for his teammates and himself before more of the Dominators creations came around. Some with six legs like spiders, others with five eyes that cast a hypno gaze.

when the team didn't report back, the Legion sent the remainder of the team that was available finding the Legion cruiser and the other ships that had landed on Preztor. Finding their friends quickly they realized they had walked into a trap as dozens of the Dominators henchmen rushed them.

The battle began but did end quickly. each member facing off against two to three each. till finally they were surrounded. Saturn Girl tried to reach out to their minds finding most of them to have a psychic inhibitor implanted. All except Jeem, who the Dominators thought his powers would give him a natural immunity to it. however they were wrong. Saturn Girl slowly took control of his body as her teammates and the altered henchmen continued fighting. Finally able to control him she sent him around running touching all the henchmen but because of the fighting none of them realized it was Jeem touching them. before long they were incapacitated. using her powers to reverse his brainwashing Saturn girl restored Jeem's mind.

The reunited Legion made its was to find the diplomats and s.p officers after they called the U.P. about their finds. The U.P said ships would be on the way for medical relief and military support to help ride Preztor of the Dominators.

Once the legion, who had Jeem along with them because he wanted to help save his world. The dominators knowing they themselves didnt stand a chance against the Legion after they took down half of their altered army cut their losses.

Peztor joined the U.P and with their help healed their world. As for Jeem he hopped to return to farming but after everything he found that he was plagued by nightmares from his time with the Dominators and realized he needed to do something that helped. he auditioned for the Legion after he had spent a little time learning to control hallucinations. calling himself Command Kid and was accepted.

I like the bit about PVRAD (post virtual reality adjustment disorder). That's a neat bit of future-development to throw into the character history!

Reminds me of those rats they wired up so that they could press a bar and directly stimulate their own pleasure centers, and they just kept pressing that bar until they died of dehydration... (That sort of thing is do-able *now,* so, by the 30th century, there's going to have to be some sort of Science Police mandated ban on that technology, or people will be required to submit to genetic modification that makes their pleasure centers immune to that sort of direct stimulation, or something, or else entire planetary populations would just die, pressing their bliss buttons...)
