Context

TNTNT was a minor band of low-powered, low-textured villainous operatives. They appeared in 1993, during the early days of Malibu’s new super-hero setting the Ultraverse.

We like having profiles for their ilk on writeups.org. They’re not super-interesting in themselves, but super-hero role-playing game campaigns frequently need teams of minor baddies.

Powers and Abilities

Torso has no limbs, either from birth or due to an accident. He can, however, generates ghostly, luminescent imaginary limbs that have great speed and power.

Many amputees feel ghost limbs – Torso can make them real by an effort of will.


History

TNTNT is a minor team of Ultras on J.D. Hunt’s payroll. Although they have been training hard for three years, they have neither the skill nor the talent to be really efficient.

When first seen in public action, they were beaten by the Strangers. They later were defeated by the Night Man, who used fog and a construction area to outmanoeuvre them.

Torso was apparently killed by one of Rafferty’s men while attempting to save Neuronne, whom he was in love with.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Will try to act professional, confident and scary. But he’s really quite scarred by his handicap.


Quotes

“I create my arms and legs in my mind, in whatever form I decide. Whatever form and whatever strength ! “


DC Universe History

TNTNT is excellent as a band of minor opponents for beginning or low-powered heroes.
