    Ok so real talk right now: I love superheroes and comic books and all that jazz. I could go on forever about why Batman is the best super hero ever, or the highs and lows of Marvel and DC. But I always found it hard to take one of my characters and put them into the world of my favorite superheroes. Then I realized "DUH! Skyrim! The King of story and role playing video games!" So I've decided to go backwards and put one of my favorite super heroes into the world of Skyrim.... But just how am I going to do that? Well y'all goin help me.

    I thought we would start with one of my favorites:​
    GREEN ARROW
    Oliver Queen, Green Arrow, is one of my favorite super heroes of all time! Most think he is a copy of Robin Hood, and while the hood (duh) and archery is similar, he was based off of Batman. The bow and arrow replaces batarangs and Bats' other gadgets, and Oliver was intended to be more of a liberal and socially conscious "fight for the working man" vigilante that DC used to express their opinions on progressive politics. So... how do we bring him to Skyrim?
    This one should be easy:
    THE INCREDIBLE HULK
    Despite Marvel's constant repeat of giant, super strength characters, Hulk was one of the first and probably the most popular. Bruce Banner, a socially challenged physicist, was exposed to extremely high levels of gamma rays which cause him, when his heartbeat increases, to transform into the Incredible Hulk, a humanoid with near limitless strength. The Hulk is theorized to actually be piece of Banner's fractured personality (Probably self loathing) that completely takes control, that's why he shows little regard for Banners life.
    I'd like to see what y'all think of:
    HAWKGIRL
    I wasn't the biggest fan of Hawk girl in JLA but when she started wearing that sexy skin suit on JLU I changed my mind damn quick. Shiera Hol is the reincarnation of Egyptian Princess Chay-Ara and a Thanagarian detective who joined the Justice League. Her physical body type, while strangely stunning, resembles that of a Valkyrie, or winged humanoid warriors. Her signature weapon is a Nth metal mace, a powerful weapon with the ability to manipulate electricity. (I know you cant put wings on your characters! Use your damn imaginations)
    That's all for now. Later I'll post my ideas on how to create them in the world of Skyrim, ad add to the list later. Did your favorite bad buy-basher not get picked? Feel free to add them below, but try to maintain the same format as above so others can easily see and include a short bio. Oh and one more thing!... Don't think were doing JUST heroes... *fading evil laugh*

    This is a really neat idea you have here. I made up a character similar to this idea based off Harley Quinn from Batman, lol. She wears Cicero's clothes and her weapon is Volendrung. :D

    I can't think of much if you still need ideas on these though. :sadface: But I do think the Hulk should be an orc! And maybe for Hawkgirl, you can have her fly by riding dragons! (if you have Dragonborn). And give her a cool enchanted mace, of course.

    HULK = ORC that's a fact!

    AT first I was like, "Volendrung? Dafuq?" then It hit me (hahaa) that she is notorious for wielding the giant hammer XD GENIOUS! what does the character do exactly? what kid of behavior?

    Well, I don't play with her a lot, but she pretty much just goes around doing random evil things like thievery and murder. She is in the DB and TG but doesn't really do a lot of quests for them. She is an imperial, so she's always super lucky with finding things and she can use Voice of the Emperor or illusion spells to calm people. Or make them go crazy. >D

    I once made a Batman-like Dovahkiin, and the only things he wears are his Nightingale armor and an Ebony Bow.
    To mimic Batarangs, I crafted tons of Ebony Daggers and he has them all in his inventory :3
    Oh, and he's a khajiit. Simply because cats can be bats and can be rats can be hats. (Minor reference to the in game book Wabbajack...)

    Skyrim Redone gave me the ability to make some sort of dwarven gadgeteer. You could get to craft explosives, modded crossbows and even hooks. Combine that with some other mods that include dwarven mechanical equipment such as a wrist mounted blade/shield and other automatons and you can be close to one style of superhero.

    Oliver Queen
    Archery skills (obviously) and light armour, and wear hoods instead of helmets.
    When you've built your first house, you could think of your housecarl as Diggle and Steward as Felicity :D
    Maybe when you start, you could pick a hold to be your hometown and focus on solving all of it's problems. Maybe Windhelm is a good choice because you have the downtrodden argonians who get a lot of hassle, and you get to track down the butcher. "You've failed this city!"

    Mr. Freeze
    Heavy armour and destruction magic (frost related spells obviously) and also enchantments to add frost damage to weapons and frost abatement to armour.

    Twoface
    design your character's face to look as asymmetrical as possible, and have a coin nearby for decision making when it comes to dialogue options. Will you resist or cooperate with guards? Serve a daedric lord or defy him? Spare an NPC or kill him? Agree to commit a crime on somebody's behalf or refuse? Stuff like that.

    Selina Kyle
    Female (Khajiit if you wanna literally be a Catwoman and take advantage of infrared vision) and obviously focus on thieving skills - pickpocket, lockpicking, sneak.

    Poison Ivy
    Focus on alchemy so you can make use of the many deadly flowers you find scattered throughout the land. Earn your own plot of land to build a house and greenhouse for cultivating your poisons.

    All very interesting! Thanks for starting on the super villains btw. It gets lonely running your own thread and being responsible for the constant updates. Im SO excited to start green arrow. but im too tired tonight. love the Mr. Freeze idea too, its similar to a build I did only adapted for fire

    Doesn't it suck that you can't enchant arrows? Ugh, a boy can dream. When I first saw my brother playing this game he was slaying a dragon along side Irileth, the unit used arrows to land the beast. I said to him, referencing DragonKnight a book by Donita K. Paul, "Can't you light the arrows on fire?" Ah such ignorance.... but I digress.

    I decided for my Green Arrow character I would instead have multiple hot keyed bows (all the same model of course) each enchanted and poisoned with a different ability. Is that good enough? Any suggestions? Lemme know folks

    SIDENOTE: If you guys need some awesome character creation, these are the guys I use, their abilities to recreate skyrim characters and celebrities is spot on:

    Truancy factory has a plethora of custom creations and recreations
    http://www.truancyfactory.com/mods/skyrim/skyrim-character-sliders-4.html

    MarcusGarlick has spot on recreations and originals but hasn't focused on Skyrim in a while
    http://www.youtube.com/user/marcusgarlick

    Entertainment Buddha is also good, and has many characters and celebs others don't do, but they are limited

    I'd love it if I could be a Draugr and be some kind of evil bastard, sadly I'm on XBox.
    A good backstory for the Draugr character is when he finally realizes the Dragon Cult's cruelty even long after they were dead. So his sole quest is to wipe out the Dragon Cult and use the Warlord mask against the rest of their followers.
