Concrete Savages


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Villains & Vigilantes is an early (1979) pen-and-paper super-hero super-hero role playing game. We have a fairly large selection of characters from that game, with DCH stats.

They’re here in no small part due to nostalgia. But they also are interesting stock characters in that they can be easily inserted into stories, conveniently filling their niche.


Powers and Abilities

The Concrete Savages are just a bunch of well-armed punks, and each has a remarkable gift for his own brand of combat. Just like their equivalent in America (and the Marvel Universe), the Wild Boys, they are a match for most police forces or a single street-level super-hero.


History

The three members of the Concrete Savages were the leaders of a large punk gang in Britain, which was generally ignored by the police as it was not overly violent. However, when the fad of post-Holocaust movies hit their hometown, they were awed by the concept (especially the wrist crossbow part), as were many of the gang.

They feverishly built their weapons and gear with the help of other post-apocalypse punk fans. Then they exploded in a highly mobile spree of violence, from cheap robberies to knocking off variety stores and driving Brinks trucks off the road.

Although the group often experience heated arguments, the resulting violent brawls can usually be controlled by Rampage.
