Clean Up This Mess Boy

Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game


This character is an original creation. We often call these “homemades” or “homebrewed” – think home cooking or craft beer.

Many of these characters were created to take part in tabletop role-playing game sessions. Others were invented as a creative writing exercise, often as part of a community event.

As to Clean-Up-This-Mess Boy specifically… I thought I’d share this one, which came to me in a very odd dream the other night.


CUTM Boy is the younger brother of a member of a super-hero team.

He manifested the strange ability to move very quickly. But since the super-heroes do not want him getting into danger, they don’t let him fight with them.

However, since he tends to tag along anyway, they let him clean up after fights. And sometimes he even starts cleaning up things while the fight is going on — which can cause some worry for the super-heroes.

Amazingly, though, he is never hurt while in the midst of the worst super-powered fights. Great luck, or something, seems to follow him. He could literally zip through the middle of a hail of bullets, mopping the floor, and emerge unscathed.


Man, that was a weird dream.
