Powers and Abilities

Awol seems to be a muscular, trained infantryman — but nothing to write home about.


The Dial V for Villain mercenaries only appeared once, very briefly. They had been hired by Lexcorp to organize a fake hostage situation (capturing handicapped children visiting a super-heroes wax museum) in order to boost Aztek’s reputation as a hero and increase his chance to join the JLA. The mercenaries knew they were just expected to give a decent fight, and counted on Lexcorp lawyers to quickly get them out of prison once their job was done.

Aztek being pretty good despite his lack of field experience, the Dial V mercs did not even get to give him a significant fight, and were swiftly defeated. However, instead of paying them, Luthor implied he would have them offed by the Hitman to save the money. What actually happened is unknown.


See illustration.


Awol is a constant whiner and not cut out for combat duty ; while he wished he was a big bad supervillain, he actually panicked when Aztek went through his team like a lightsaber through butter, and eventually seemed to pass out from shock. He’s a terrible leader.


“I never went AWOL in my life. I’m not even a vet. The closest I’ve come to a war zone is watching Hamburger Hill on video. I’m fed up being an hypocrite. Why can’t we just be cool, like the Teen Titans ?”

Dial V for Villain customization corner

Awol’s customization angle is that, while he likely has a weak superhuman power (around 5APs) like everybody else in the group, he has not demonstrated any ; pick one that sounds appropriate to the encounter you have in mind.

If you have no idea, my suggestion is Teleportation: 05 (allowing him to ’go AWOL‘, in a way) with a Fatiguing Limitation that is tested *before* he can actually teleport – thus explaining why he passed out in front of Aztek.
