This profile is about a *specific* version of Batgirl (Barbara Gordon). Namely, the popular “Batgirl of Burnside” era in 2015/16.
It was pretty cool.
Writeups.org is an encyclopaedia of characters in genre fiction — comic books, video games, action movies, etc. It offers illustrated, researched profiles. These also include technical data for role-players. If you need a robust understanding of a character’s abilities, personality, history, etc. this is *the* place to be.
The most interesting ally of Mark Hazzard in the Merc 1986-87 comic book. Streetwise young expert in the Japanese martial arts, as was the style of the day.
As of June of 2019, this profile was revised and received loyal and disciplined M&M stats. I was hoping for a digital reissue to also redo the pictures for the Merc stuff but heh, them’s the breaks.
It’s time for the second of our thrice-yearly calls for donation for 2019 !
As always, this call doubles as a summary of what’s been happening on writeups.org (and why) since the previous call.
This is the part that comes after the two-parts article about Catwoman during the 1940s. Unsurprisingly, it’s about Catwoman as she appeared during the 1950s.
Or rather the early 1950s, for historical reasons.
A professional 1970s/1980s mercenary who appeared in Marvel’s New Universe setting. Gritty Cold War/urban decay stories.
As of June of 2019, this profile has received a review for style and concision, plus M&M stats that have gun and will travel.
The main bad guy in the third Batgirl of Burnside collection, Mindfields.
Memory manipulations and injection, somewhere between the Inception movie and gaslighting/psychological abuse. Not easy to use in tabletop RPGs, mind.
A short-ish profile of the Valkyr warframe from, well, the Warframe video game, for use in tabletop/pen-and-paper RPGs.
Enraged space panther cyber ninja super soldier, or some combination thereof.
A witchy little girl who grew up in a strange, darkly magical environment. One of the main characters in Dan Brereton’s Nocturnals painted comics.
As of May of 2019, this profile was entirely redone and reillustrated and rewighten.
A young professional informer/private detective/underworld intelligence type. From the Gunsmith Cats manga.
You may have heard rumours that this profile now has M&M stats. For a retainer fee, plus expenses, we could tell you whether it’s true.
From Dan Brereton’s painted Nocturnals comics. Lone samurai, ex-detective, ex-drifter fugitive, pyrokinetic synthesoid, trenchcoat-and-katana enthusiast.
As of May of 2019, this oldbad entry was burned to the ground and redone.
Frankie as she appeared during the “Batgirl of Burnside” era. From supporting cast to (fleetingly) inheritor of the Oracle mantle and back to supporting cast again.
Talented computer security expert with an interest in super-heroics.
Ariane de Troïl aka Damasque/Masquerouge is the heroine of a classic series of French swashbuckling graphic novels, halfway between the Three Musketeers, the Count of Monte Cristo and Zorro.
As of May of 2019, this profile was cleft in twain. It didn’t feel that long to read, but with so many folks perusing this site on smartphones smaller pages are better.
This Kree hardliner and senior officer clashed with the Avengers during the 1990s.
He’s not the most memorable Avengers enemy, but if your stories make use of the Kree (or Marvel space stuff in general) he’s useful.
Stephanie Brown as Batgirl during her excellent 2009-2011 run. Unsinkable, endearing and getting pretty damn competent at this stage.
As of April of 2019, this profile was ensmoothened then split so it’s easier to read, especially on smartphones. As we slowly do with our longer writeups.
