Context

Book is a minor character in the Ultraverse setting. This was an indie super-hero line launched during the comic books bubble of the early 1990s, which died as the bubble burst. But it was fairly interesting.

Though there’s little material about him, Book is part of a convenient, generic-ish team of super-enforcers. Which is useful for gamemasters.

Powers and Abilities

Book is possessed by a huge tome he’s always holding in his arms. He just has to open it and read a few lines to cast any needed spell.


History

Book works for one of the two known ultra groups operating for Rex Mundi in the absence of NM-E. He and the rest of Quattro were involved in very bloody thefts of nuclear weapons in former Soviet military bases, and in attempting to stop Regina’s forces on the moon during Break-Thru.


Description

Book is a young man in streetwear. Yet be speaks and behave like, well, an evil magical artefact.


Personality

Book sees himself as a powerful magelord who should be feared and obeyed. He seems jealous of other magic wielders such as Shadowmage or Mantra.


Quotes

“Beware what you say to him, or your soul will be eaten !”


DC Universe History

Quattro is a good example of a small, mid-powered superhuman strike team. It could serve almost any master.
