Landslide of Cerebro's X-Men (Marvel Comics)


(Lee Broder)

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


Landslide and the rest of his team are artificially-powered, fake, gisted X-Men copies who appeared in 1998.

This gives them a curiously familiar-yet-off-target quality that we found interesting, and could be of use in more scenarios.

  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Cerebro’s X-Men.
  • Base Of Operations: Hidden Bunker, Florida Swamp.

Powers and Abilities

Landslide appears to be a basic brick . His abilities are seemingly based on the powers of Beast and the Blob. Which gives high strength and durability, and the ability to consume vast amounts of food.

He fights in a fairly standard manner, using his bulk and strength against opponents.


Landslide is actually an artificial being. He was created by Cerebro when it gained sentience and took on a physical body. Broder was given a physical body and artificial memories.

Cerebro first sent them to attack a group of X-Men on board a cruise ship, to abduct Shadowcat. Hostilities erupted between the two groups, seriously damaging the ship.

They managed to escape with Shadowcat as their captive. They took her back to the hidden bunker they were using, where she met Cerebro, who appeared as Professor Xavier.


Round two

Shadowcat helped Cerebro, believing him to be Xavier, overcome programming left in him by Bastion. Then the new X-Men were dispatched to ambush the real X-Men, blowing up their Blackbird in flight, and attacking its occupants.

The real X-Men were saved when Colossus and Nightcrawler arrived in another Blackbird, but that was then shot down by Mercury in Cerebro’s X-Men’s Aurora.

When Shadowcat broke free, they tried to recapture her, but failed. Thus earned thems Cerebro’s displeasure.

Cape Citadel

He next dispatched them to the Cape Citadel space centre. They were to stop the launch of a space shuttle carrying a Mutant Defense Net. This technology was designed to keep track of mutants, and eliminate them when possible. They again come into conflict with the real X-Men.

During the battle, Cerebro reveals its true nature. This gave his team time to escape with the satellite from the shuttle. The real X-Men caught up with them before they can get far, however, catching them by surprise and destroying the satellite. Cerebro transports the team away, soon returning them to digital storage.


Landslide is a basic thug. He uses his strength to push others around and take what he wants.

He has a short temper, and gets aggressive when stopped from taking what he wants.


“Don’t nobody tell Lee Broder what he can an’ cain’t have !”
