The Ladykillers (T and A) (Wolverine enemies) (Marvel Comics)

Ladykillers

T and A


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game
  • For ESL people, “T and A” is the abbreviation for “tits and arse”, or the gratuitous injection of alluring, underdressed females to raise the audience of a TV or cinema show. But not comic books, of course – comic books would never do that.

Background

  • Real Name: Unrevealed
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed, presumed single for both
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: Frequent employees of Mister X
  • Base Of Operations: New York City
  • Height: 5’7” Weight: 130 lbs
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: A is the blonde, T is the raven-haired one


Powers and Abilities

Both T and A are excellent street fighters and remarkable weapon specialists ; both are also complete psychos. They are extremely well coordinated, and their ability to deliver a wide variety of Team Attacks (-1CS to opponent’s OV for two persons Team Attacking, and an additional CS for their Schtick) is very dangerous. They tend to use one Phase to manoeuvre and attack individually, then one Phase for the Team Attack – wash, rinse, repeat.

Team Attack usually involve driving their opponent in to each other’s path, having one attack high and the other low, pooling their strength to throw an opponent, etc. They like to hit things and do not do much Team Grappling. They tend to have excellent tactical acumen, and attack viciously and relentlessly ; they are also used to working with Blok, Mister X’s bodyguard.


History

T and A are a pair of assassins hangin’ around in the big apple. They live for the night life, and spend a lot of time in the trendiest clubs – usually with violent consequences. As assassins, their main (and sole known) client is Mister X.

When Mister X decided to test if Wolverine was worthy of fighting him, he first sent a small army to try to kill him ; when Wolverine slaughtered them, he hired the Lady Killers and had his bodyguard, a gigantic Māori called Blok, go to fight along them.

Blok and the Lady Killers were devastating against their lone opponent, but proved simply unable to bring Wolverine down despite the the tremendous number of attacks they inflicted on the canucklehead. Although Wolverine finished the fight in a rather sorry shape, T had a broken arm and A suffered some damage to the skull and neck.

Mister X let the Lady killers hang around a bit, then dismissed them before fighting Wolverine.


Description

A is the blonde, T is the raven-haired one ; one would imagine their wardrobe always revolve around the trendy club slutwear. A has a naughty schoolgirl theme running, and T a leather ’n’ skin theme.


Personality

Both girls are serious psychotics and sociopaths, and seem addicted to violence. Once somebody hit them or they hit someone, they have a distressing tendency to enter a state of maniacal aggressiveness where they ignore everything around them and just turn whoever they have a problem with into a bloody pulp.

If one goes into unhinged violence mode, the other one can usually drag her away ; if both are involved in a fight, the nearest ER room will soon be full.

They love to heap scorn and sexual references or double entendre at their targets – in a way that is quite closer to “creepy and obsessional” than “funny and playful”. They have the fake-Lolita-sexual-predator part down pat.


Quotes

A : “Where you going, shorty ?”
T : “Yeah, come back ! We won’t bite… much.”

“So you like it rough, do ya sport ? How about I tie you up for a little bit, then ? You like that that, hmmm ?” (flips Wolverine’s jacket above his head to entangle his hands) “I’d let you tie me, too… I sort of like it rough myself… but it might be tough with you being dead and all…”


DC Universe History

They’re psychos, they have a strong theme running, they have to be Bat-villains. Nightwing already gets to tangle with the Double Dare, so they could have danced with Azrael.
