Powers and Abilities

Spoilsport can move at very high speed, and easily defy gravity by moving along walls or ceilings. Although she tends to just punch or backhand people at high speed, those are in DC Heroes RPG terms considered Charging attacks.

She uses roller skating equipment to both enhance her speed and protect herself from collision.

Spoilsport is quite acrobatic. Skating reversed above a speeding train (along the tunnel’s roof) then doing a flip in mid-air with a full spin to land on the train when the tunnel ended, all the while dodging Jubilee’s fireworks, seemed relatively easy for her.


History

The Rising Sons are a Madripoor street gang composed of mutants. Lacking direction, they decided that if the world around them hated and feared them it might as well be for a good reason. They thus became super-criminals, tailoring costumes and codenames for themselves.

The gang graduated to minor mercenary work. Though they have a good track record and act professional, their youth means that they aren’t major league yet. It is unclear how those amoral truants fit into Madripoor’s criminal turfs and hierarchies.

During one documented case, they worked for the criminal business man known as Mister Noy. They clashed with Paladin and Gen X, who were after an object stolen by Noy.


Description

Spoilsport and Dragonwing the only White member of the gang. They might be runaways from a High Town White family.


Personality

Spoilsport acts every bit the shallow, flirty valley girl and general airhead. It is unclear whether it’s a matter of style and affectation, or her actual personality.


Quotes

“Hi, guys ! I hope you don’t mind if we make this fighting thing quick-like. I’ve got a date later tonight, and I gotta go home and get ready, tee-heee !”

“Eeeeww… grody !”
