Been a while, trying to salvage my grades, figger I’ll just keep posting these “Not-Titans” just for S&G (“shits and giggles”):
This guy may be the first “OC” of the group, but he also is, in a way, a combination of the rationales for the previous two; he was inspired by both the then-new Light power (GL light constructs for good guys, yellow Sinestro ones for bad) and by a Superman hoodie becoming available in the Marketplace. At the time, I didn’t want to just ape everyone else and make a Green Fan-tern character (yet), but then, while tinkering with a possible Superboy build, I gave him green Glowing skin that matched the Light power’s constructs and, in one of those “3am alchemy” moments, I got this guy: “Super Kryptoboy” (Light/Brawling/Flight), real character name still pending…I’m leaning towards either just Kryptoboy, which sounds a little too much like he should be part dog, or Kid Krypton, which sounds a little too much like one of the possible alternate names for Gwen “Kid Guardian.”
Basically, the idea is that he is a failed Cadmus clone, either of the original batch that resulted in Conner or, more likely, a later attempt at repeating his success. In his case, however, the batch was contaminated with kryptonite radiation (either accidentally or on purpose, I dunno), resulting in him degenerating to, basically, a ball of alien radiation held together by little more than a tactile telekinetic field and an attitude problem. The way this plays out in-game is that the bulk of the Light powers I gave him are those that are physically connected to his body, the idea being that they actually ARE his body…he’s as much Plastic Man as Superman, reshaping parts of himself into weapons and tools.
Personality-wise, he’s intended to be a bit of a throwback to Conner’s original personality, only updated a little; he’s more snarky, kinda fatalistic, maybe a little more violent and less oversexed than his template due to his degrading body, but he’s still heroic by nature and determined that, if he’s gonna someday dissolve or, worse, explode, then he’s gonna make sure that he is remembered as something great and have a good time doing it.
While he has a few alternate looks based on my attempts at mimicking Superboy’s original 90’s look, this is his default look (although I sometimes add the Green Energy Cudgels if I’m heading into a big brawl). This is mainly because they all rely on the Shield emblem being the closest I could get to the Superman symbol, and I also used it for Gwen to represent The Guardian…while this is kinda appropos due to the three of them being Cadmus clones, I also briefly toyed with making it the “Not-Titans” team insignia.
In terms of the “Scissors, Paper, Stone” Wolfman/Perez Titans formation, K here is the “Verdant Shape Shifter,” which, yes, makes HIM the stand-in for Beast Boy/Changeling.
