Lancer from the DNAgents comics

Lancer


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game
  • Lancer was chosen as an example of a generic, practically unknown superhuman which GMs can use in their campaign to fill practically any role needed. As noted it’s not a researched entry but an adaptation from another RPG.

Background

  • Marital Status: Unknown
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: None
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile
  • Height: 12” Weight: 1360lbs
  • Eyes: Black Hair: White


Powers and Abilities

Lancer is the strongest man in the DNAgents’ world. He’s basically a brawler, employing the tactics of a professional wrestler in combat. He rarely evades, relying on his virtual invulnerability to protect him from meaningful harm.

Since STR 10 is not too impressive in other comics universe, feel free to boost his STR and BODY to whatever level is necessary if using him outside of the DNAgents’s milieu.


History

The true origin of Lancer and his amazing strength and size are unknown. He tells different people things at different times.

For instance, he has claimed that he was born with incredible strength and that when the doctor slapped him in the hospital delivery room, he hauled off and decked the doctor. On several occasions he has claimed he was rocketed to Earth from a doomed planet in another galaxy. This one nobody believes.

Another time he claimed he was an average skinny kid, often picked on by anyone bigger and stronger. He started to lift weights and kept at it until he was twelve feet tall and then managed to return the favor to any bully he has since encountered.

One thing is for certain : he does not use steroids. He did not get his strength from nuclear bombardment and he was never involved in any experiment for muscle tissue regeneration.

To this day, no one really knows just who he is or how he got to be the way he is. All that is known is that he’s the strongest man in the DNAgents’ world.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Lancer sees himself as being a “Hero for the Eighties” (that was back in 1985 or 86, I believe) and has hired himself to a Hollywood agent to make him famous. Although he seems to do all of his thinking with his muscles (is this an act ?), he seems to be a rather decent person at heart.
