  • This article assumes that you’ve read our main article about the Overmaster’s Cadre. The New Extremists have but capsule entries with speculative stats, since there’s so little material about them.

Background

  • Real Name: Unrevealed
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: New Extremists ; Cadre
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile
  • Height: 5’7” Weight: 120 lbs.

Powers and Abilities

Death Angel might be some sort of demon or succubus, as Bloodwynd stated that her abilities are magical. Her main attack is to transfix her target with a mesmerising vision of a loved one.

She then closes in, manifests shadow-like fangs and drains the desires and spirit of her target until death ensues.

Death Angel was also seen hurling eldritch bolts, and it is possible that she has other magic skills such as illusions-casting and mind-probing.


History

See the Cadre entry for context about the New Extremists.

Quotes

“Such simple, pathetic desires. They will be your undoing. My first bite was just enough to make you sick. My next bite kills !”

The best defence

Most New Extremists will spend their HPs offensively, spending everything on a mix of AV and OV within the first three Phases or so.

This allowed them to credibly engage the JLA, since the League doesn’t generally spend HPs on a bunch of nobodies. But the tide turned as the New Extremists ran dry – and their more powerful opponents regrouped, started two-teaming them, shook off the Stuns, etc.

Notes

The New Extremists normally front-load their assaults. They’ll spend any Hero Points they have in the first round to raise mediocre and poor dice rolls, concentrating on the offensive but leaving little for defense. Thus, they’ll hit quite hard at first, but then run dry and be easier to mop up than you’d expect. They also prefer offensive tactics – for instance Cloudburst normallly uses All-Out Attack, especially early in the fight.
