Insect Hero

Next on my list of iconic superheroes is the Insect Hero!

The core abilities of this hero include: Animal/Plant Abilities, Grapnel, Heightened Senses, and Heightened Strength. The lesser abilities include: Heightened Defense and Heightened Expertise.

Suggested Animal/Plant weakness: Low Self-Control, Compulsion: must "make fun" of opponents.

Other suggested weaknesses include: Nemesis, Personal Problem: Dependent, and Poverty.

An option for the Grapnel ability is to modify it as follows: GRAPNEL: 8 break point, max 16, 3840 lbs (20), ST+AG=54" Range, 24 Charges (0), Field Reloading: 1 Action (+10),  Components: must make Wealth roll of 3+ (-10). This allows the hero to carry additional charges of Grapnel while on patrol.

The ability of the Insect Hero to detect karma at range in 360 degrees makes it almost impossible for villains to surprise him, and his superhuman stats, high defense, and good chance of hitting make him an excellent combatant.

Size-Changing Genius

Next up on my list of iconic superheroes for Mighty Protectors is the Size-Changing Genius! This hero has two versions: a giant-size form and an insect-sized form.

Force Bubbler

Next on my list of iconic superheroes for Mighty Protectors is the Force Bubbler!

The core abilities of the Force Bubbler include: Force Field, Force Bolt, and Energy. The lesser abilities include Heightened Expertise and Flight.

The Bubbler's force field is a large area that is adjustable and that moves with the character. It does, however, take concentration to maintain. So, if the Bubbler takes hit point damage the force field will come down.

Flying Brick

The Flying Brick may be the most iconic superhero on my list -- and it's next for Mighty Protectors!

The core abilities of the Flying Brick are: Heightened Strength, Armor, Flight, and Power Blast. The lesser abilities include Heightened Endurance and Heightened Senses: "X-ray" vision.

A strong alternative to the armor ability is Invulnerability: all Kinetic damage. This may be more appropriate since the flying brick is usually depicted as being invulnerable to this kind of damage. The downside to this is the fact that there are a lot more damage types than just kinetic.

Suggested weaknesses include: Low Self-Control: Compulsion (not to kill), Nemesis, Personal Problem: Dependent, and Susceptibility.
