Stick Man Fighter

(Shockwave animation)


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

Context

During the late 1990s, Shockwave was a popular platform/language for animations and games. Part of its success was that it could be played inside a web browser, and was fairly easy to work with. So there were a lot of spontaneous Shockwave creations in the Internet of yesteryear.

The “stick man” web animation by Zhu Zhq enjoyed some viral spread back when this entry was written. It still can be found on YouTube .

History

Stick Man snuck into a warehouse and kicked a bunch of other stick men’s asses.

One of the other stick men was “BOSS”. He was purple and a real bad-ass. Stick Man actually had to use several slo-mo sequences and a special effects shot to defeat him. In DC Heroes RPG terms that’s a Power Reserve. BOSS also has one, but he’s got fewer Hero Points .


Description

The DCH mailing list’s fashion tip of the day : Stick Man Fighter would be a way cooler cat if he had a ’fro – word up.

That applies to you, too.


Personality

The Stick Man Fighter is a really badass fighter, trained by none other than Stick Man Wildcat I, we bet !

His personality is a cross between Neo in Matrix and the karateka in, well, the Karateka early video game . Well, presumably. Which is not much, but that’s not the point anyway. The point is to kick ass.


Quotes

“…” (Stick Man Fighter needs no words when his fists do the talkin’ !)


DC Universe History

Stick Man Fighter was one of Stick Man Bruce Wayne’s early instructors before joining the Stick Men Doom Patrol. In the DCU BOSS would actually be Stick Man Vandal Savage (Why ? Look, it’s obvious. Don’t be silly).

Of course, if he were to come into a non-stick-figures dimension, most people would be surprised (and he would have Distinct Appearance).

The Question was motivated to assume his unique featureless motif after witnessing the unparalleled fighting fury of the Stick Man. Shiva and Stick Man have sparred on occasion, but have not truly tested their skills against one another yet. Be careful, Stick Man Fighter !

Rumor has it that Arnold Schwarzenegger will revive his acting career to play the Stick Man in the upcoming hundred-million dollar blockbuster live-action film: Shtick Around.
