Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green, mutant vagrant.Your ex just made you feel like a total prick. Which is kind of weird and wrong, seeing as you’re the one trying to get her out of the drug trade and she’s the one… trying to get you to save your own skin, you guess. It dawns on you that you’re both championing a sort of logic here, or at least trying to – you’re both just equally armoured against sound reasoning, in different ways and for different reasons. She makes her way past you, toward the road. She’s very pointedly turned her face away, but you know her eyes are set on a fixed point ahead, diminishing you, the street, the world. That’s Victoria; snipping and snipping at world until all that’s left is unquestioning, unthreatening simplicity. Laura steps forward very slightly, and looks up at you as if to ask whether one of you should be stopping her.Well. Should you? >Current Funds: $112.3>Present Time: 16:01 PM>Hunger Level: 4>[ ] “…I’m not a weirdo.” >[ ] Ask her how long she can keep this up.>[ ] Tell her things have changed (powers, allies, etc). >[ ] Ask her if she ever really liked you. >[ ] Just let her go.>[ ] Write in.

[ ] Just let her go.Also go to department store, and get some basic tug life equipment. Couple of kitchen knifes, and some fabric for sheathes/slingshot. Maybe metal cup, if you see one.We need to weapon up, if we gonna tray to fight people like her. The hell were JJ thinking going unarmed in there.(refer to previous tread for reasoning)
>[x] Just let her go.
If she still works for Creeper, I wonder if she can tell us the current level of PANIC he's currently undergoing.I mean, is he just laughing at the fact that a little lizard that can hardly turn invisible is coming after him, or is he shitting bricks?
Oh goodie, it's JJ's Bizarre adventure!
>>30082904Dude we have 60 dollars to our name and kids to feed.
>>30082904I say we should get some metal wire with a weight at the end at some point so we can use the tazer hands at range.
>>30082904We're a little short on cash, dude. Lets cut back the spending until we come into some money.
>>30082904We've got claws, where do we need knives? I mean unless we're going to throw them, but kitchen knives make really shitty projectiles.
>>30082904JJ can lift a literal ton, has taser hands, claws, fangs, invisibility, super human senses and our BFF is a super assassin ninja.
>>30082955Shank a drug dealer, get money. Besides we are no good to feed them if we are dead/wounded. Also will prevent retards from spending X points on claws and other <10dolar worth abilities, we will use like once in quest. later on.We can check out scrap pile, or steal from caffe or some shit. At least get a slingshot. We can afford to get or find a piece of cloth/leather and some string. Hell go to junkyard and pick up led pipe.Claws are good, but they don't offer you a knockout ability.Also get some chalk or some shit in a jar, for blinding powder. Prepare to get your ass beaten, before the beating, not after it, as we been doing so far.

>>30083000Also you stab a bitch with acid blood with your claws. Don't you wish you did it with a shank now?Also you can probably replace knife with any sharp piece of metal with handle.

>>30083099healing level 2.
>>30082748>Ask how long she can keep this us>(Write in) Start talking about a ship full of shipping containers of mutants, left to sit and die in there own filth. The Creeper's going to turn on her eventually, it's who he's become. The question she should ask herself is whether she wants to have a friend at her back when her number comes up, or of she really wants to keep living in fear with no one to trust.
>>30082748>>[ ] Ask her how long she can keep this up.
>[X] “…I’m not a weirdo.” >[X] Ask her how long she can keep this up.“…I’m not a weirdo.” You murmur, immediately aware of how much it sounds like air escaping from a deflated balloon. Well, you’re not. You just have claws and sorta glowy eyes and scales in uncomfortable places, and can go invisible, and stuff. That’s not weird. You shift uncomfortably and take a few steps after her. Briefly, you consider grabbing her wrist, but decide against it. Too weird. “Look…” You sigh quietly, picking your brain for the right words. “How long can you keep this up? We couldn’t do this shit forever. It just… it just won’t fucking work.”She turns on her heel, her expression swept clean of everything but a deep scowl. “Oh?” You feel the blades sharpening. “And I suppose you have your future all mapped out, right?” Ouch. “How long can I keep this up? How fucking long can you keep this shit up!?” She gestures to your torn, shabby coat and your stained hoodie. “Where the hell are you going? Because it sure as fuck looks a lot like nowhere!” Familiar, rusty knives slip through the soft tissues of your being. Yes, you remember this feeling. You haven’t had an argument quite like this in a long while. You’ve screamed at folks and fought over embarrassingly small sums of cash, but this is a personal thing. You realize you almost missed this.She breaths out slowly, a little raggedly. “You can never, ever just not throw yourself off a bridge, can you?” >[ ] “I may be going nowhere, but at least I’m not dragging anyone down with me.”>[ ] “Someone has to do the right thing.”>[ ] “…This was a mistake.

>>30083171>Someone has to do the right thing>Write inAt first it was just looking out for myself, then surviving. Then it became about looking after my friends. Now I realize it's about doing what I can for everyone. This is the only way.
>>30083088Then get something that doesn't break easily. Claws are backup weapon. There are many powers, we don't want to touch with our hands.If weapon breaks we use claws. If you are worried about price, get it from trash bin or something. I think slingshot(strong one), or sling is reasonable weapon to get. We need long distance knockout ability.Also sling lets us deliver molotovs/abrasive dust/exc from distance quietly. Why sneak up to someone, when you can trow a brick from across the street at him, and knock him out? Much easier to hide, run, if you are further away. If we find some thrown out rags/tablecloth/hell even animal carcass(if we can skin it) we can make a sling for free.

>>30083171>[ ] “I may be going nowhere, but at least I’m not dragging anyone down with me.”>[ ] “Someone has to do the right thing.”Seriously though, JJ CHOSE to be homeless rather then be a criminal, or a monster. I mean, he could easily make it as a thief, walk in and take anything he wants, but he doesnt. no illusions about his life not sucking.If she still wants to go, let her go. We gave her a shot.
>>30083255JJ can lift a literal ton, I think his throwing arm is good enough to cover a sling which he most likely doesn't know how to use

>>30083372>21>great success>[X] “I may be going nowhere, but at least I’m not dragging anyone down with me.”>[X] “Someone has to do the right thing.”You… you feel your finger waggling accusingly, your brain unpacking all those little red boxes full of private and baleful memories, all the small and devastating things, all the giants and the biting worms. All those things you get to know about a person in time, the things you just don’t shut up about and bear with for the most part. It takes all your willpower to drag those boxes back into the dark and avoid turning this into a sniping match. “I may be going nowhere, but at least I’m not dragging anyone down with me.” She looks confused for a moment. You think you might, too. That was uncharacteristically direct of you. And no stutters, too. “Someone has to do the right thing, Victoria.” You feel your voice rising. It’s… unfamiliar. “At first, I was just looking out for myself. Then for my friends. Then… then it just became about being alright. About not making shit worse for a change!” You’re shouting now. Some part of you notices that Laura has stepped back a little, but you refuse to back down now. “Human fucking trafficking, Victoria!?” You spit it out. Like something cancerous. “You want to be a part of that!?” Her eyes narrow and she cuts in. “I’m not. I just deliver. I don’t even work for Creeper exclusively anymore.” Why isn’t she shouting back? That’s what you expected. “I’m freelance now.” The arms folded defensively across her chest unwind. She sighs. “Look, just… just stay there for a second…” She rummages through her pockets, eventually producing a pen. “Give me your arm.” >[ ] “…You won’t bite it off, will you?” >[ ] “…Sure.” >[ ] Nope.jpg, you haven’t finished being sincere and angry. >[ ] Write in.

>[X] “…Sure.” “…Sure.” You guess. She’s not gonna cut it off, right? Or vomit on it? She could never control the whole flamin’ puke thing before, but things change. You certainly have. You hold your arm up, flinching a little as she pushes up your sleeve. In the corner of your eye, Laura teeters in curiously. You stand in awkward, close silence as she slowly drags the pen along your arm, scrawling out a short sentence. Stepping back, she slides away her pen and breathes out, her shoulders falling a little. “It’s an address.” She states. “I don’t know everything anymore, but I know you didn’t mention it in your little exposé. Dunno who’s running it or what it even does, but Creeper’s worked pretty hard to keep it a secret.” She pauses, and lets her eyelids slowly fall, flexing her fingers as if letting something drain from them. Without warning, her arms coil around you, and you realize about a second later that she’s gone in for a hug. For a moment her scent overwhelms you, cinders and apples, dark coffee rolling over warm veins, and you almost don’t realize you’re squeezing her back. It doesn’t last long. She disentangles, her eyes wandering far from yours, and stows her hands away in her pockets. “It was nice seeing you again.” She turns around again, making for the other end of the street, and this time you get the impression that nothing you say could break her stride. Huh. You think this is what closure feels like.>[ ] Just sit there a bit, talk to Laura or something [insert]. >[ ] Go make your way to Queens Plaza. >[ ] Go get food.>[ ] Go get some manner of supplies [insert].>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Talk to Laura >[X] Go make your way to Queens Plaza.You stand there in the cold for a moment, just trying to understand things. Eventually you notice the dark strands encroaching along the sky, and realize you’ve got to get going soon. You stretch, feeling a little like you have to let some tension out, and glance down at Laura.“Sorry about that.” She replies with a questioning stare, and you resolve to spill while you walk. “I mean, sorry if we made you…” Feel like a third wheel? Somehow, you don’t see Laura as a wheel, exactly. “…uncomfortable. We used to date, and I guess we broke up when I left Creeper.” You check a few of the nearby streets, getting your bearings back, and make your way in what you assume to be the right direction. As you make your way along the rows of squat, dishevelled little houses and blasted lawns that populate most of Queens, Laura speaks up. “…I thought there was nothing for you with Creeper.” She stares straight ahead. “You made it sound like that.” You grimace a little. “I guess… I made it sound like that to myself, too. I just wanted to get away.” “I see.” Navigation Check>DC13>+3 modifier for Senses

>>30084276>where's the JJ I know?>where's my crackbitch?You sort of know where you are. It doesn’t take you long to get out of the residential stretch. Slowly, the buildings lengthen, grassy porches receding into well-trodden streets, houses becoming apartments, old brick becoming modern glass. The walk is long, and gives you a chance to process. You glance at the address on your arm and, not recognizing it, type it into your phone. You don’t want this break ruined on the off chance that you find yourself sweating profusely. Eventually you see the mouth of the station rearing up, your relief immediately chastised by the sight of men in yellow Mutant Control armbands idling nearby. You almost sneer, and find yourself checking for your shades. Okay, on. And your coat is big and puffy, so no collar scales out in the open. You’re just a normal hobo. Just an average, homeless, guy.

You want to know how long they’ve been there, how long they’re going to be there, and what they’re doing. You can’t help but be quietly suspicious of running into such a large clump of these tools so soon after your article hit the streets. The wretched, vengeful little angel of your darker nature tells you that whoever runs Control wouldn’t like the idea of a sympathetic mutant story. But that’s just you being you, right?

People won’t stand for it.”You hear a low murmur of agreement pass among most of them. Five. Five guys.“Look, all I’m saying is, if that happens we’re obsolete.

If we're made "I don't want any trouble, officer. Just a bum...but, if you'll fudge my description into something outlandish and wreathed in slime and blades while letting me go on my innocuous way I'd be willing to help your friend with his severance package"

>>30085912YI'd like to roll to see if we cry and if so how hard.
>>30085979...you beautiful anon. Fix myour fuckup!
I went ahead and archived this by the way.
>>30085979It's gonna be one of those days.
>>30085979Turned to our buddy Laura, & said, okay. Played the first thing that came to our heads, just so happened to be, the best "gtfo, I've been made" gesture in the world. The best gesture in the world, look into my eyes and it's easy to see 1 and 1 makes 2 2 and one make 3. It was destiny. Needless to say, Pete was stunned. Off to the side he went, his safety won. The Mardies said "be you mutants" and we each said, "We are homeless!" Ahhhhhhh ahhh a-ah-a-ah
>>30086108That was a beautiful story, Anon. Thank you for sharing its majesty with us.
>>30086108I'm not exactly sure which one is Jack Black and which one is Kyle Gass.

He frowns for a moment and stops in his tracks, glancing in their direction. You think you see a short-lived scowl spread across his face, and he turns to his companion, quietly ushering her away, back into the tide of commuters. Well… at least you’re not dragging him out into the open with you. You turn away to see one of the officers – tall, clean shaven guy, breath smells of gum – approaching. His fellows flank him a little further back“Excuse me…” He gets a closer look at your tattered silhouette. “…sir. Would you mind removing your glasses, please?” >[ ] “…Why?”>[ ] “Don’t you need a warrant for this sort of thing?”>[ ] Throw him at his friends.>[ ] “One does not ask such things of DOOM.” >[ ] “…Look, I’m not hurting anyone, and you don’t want to bother with this.

Don't worry officer. We're not mutie hobos we're singing hobos!
>[X] “One does not ask such things of DOOM.” You feel Laura’s hand creep its way behind your back. Under the dull roar of the street, you barely hear the SNIKT of cool, bright metal pushing through her skin.You look straight at him, shades to eye, and you just can’t resist.“One does not ask such things of DOOM.”He blinks. The edge of his mouth quivers and you feel his chest shake quietly, a low murmur of a laugh straining to stay bottled up in his lungs. One of his friends lets out a low, guttural snicker, grimacing bemusedly. “Damn, we’ve got a tense diplomatic situation here. Better call the Avengers.” The guy closest glances back at him, grinning very faintly, and turns back to you. “Really, sir, I insist.” He puts his hands on his hips.

>>30086812>18>slim success>[X] Write in.What can you say? What can you say? You think you feel Laura tensing to pounce. You can hear her heart dragging blood faster and faster though her veins, like a chain reaction slowly blooming, one explosion to the next…“I’d rather not.” You lick your lips. Doesn’t help. “I just got my eyes dilated.” He chortles a little, and rolls his eyes. A long sigh rattles through him. “Okay… whatever, sure.” He turns away. He knows. You can tell. He just doesn’t care. You’re not dangerous or interesting enough to be worth the trouble. No claws out, no eye lasers, no suddenly turning into tentacles and screeching about Magneto. You're too normal. Holy shit, he’s just walking away. SNIKT. The blades slide away behind you. You feel your heart winding down, a fleck or two of moisture returning to your tongue. Fuck, that was… close as shit.

I wonder why Pete brought Gwen?
>>30087355Is it Gwen? It could be Liz. She could be Ultimate Liz and be a fire mutant.Though if it is Gwen, there is a good reason. Captain Stacy could still be alive.
>>30087355How many girlfriends does Peter have?And doesn't he kill like have of them?
>>30087355Bitches love Spider-Man
>[X] “Yeah, where are you?” It takes you a little while to get a coherent reply out of your nervous fingers. Eventually, you manage to ask him where he is, and soon enough you get a reply. “Jus in the alley across th road” You breathe out a long sigh of relief and glance down at Laura, almost grinning. She stares back, her face caught in a muted, perplexed concern. “Close.” You note. She nods. You head over the street, checking over your shoulder once or twice for anyone with a Control band around their arm. They’re just milling about near the station, slowly edging their way further along the street. Soon enough you turn the corner into the closest alley, popping your head around the corner in a fit of nervousness. Peter stands beside one of those bigass metal bins you used to raid for leftovers, his back to you. The girl with him spots you over his shoulder and nods in your direction. He turns around. “…Hey.” He honestly does sound sorry. “I was not expecting that.” Man, you swear, sometimes it’s like Peter isn’t even a mutant. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->THREAD 47: END>Congratulations!

>>30087441thanks for running and what would say Victoria's relationship level is, assuming we're allowed to know?
>>30087441Thanks for running, Crusty.I can't remember how far off is Christmas in game? Have we passed it?
>>30087441Is JJJ going to come up with a superhero name for JJ if he keeps showing up in news?
>>30087441Thanks for running, hopefully we get to be trusted with Peter's secret.
>>30087533Level X - COMPLICATED.>>30087355>>30087392It's Gwen. Ultimate Gwen.
>>30087441How many ninjas does JJ have to beat up when he wants to sit on a rooftop?
>>30087539It should be a week and a half away.
>>30087544After some of the comments before in previous threads, i can't wait to see us go full dragon kin, and have jjj calling us smough or some other popular dragon name.Or at the very least drake.
>>30087544Considering what we get described as, well probably end up being called something like:The Flicker
>>30087566>Ultimate GwenAnd speaking of complicated...
>>30087598Unless we manage to get waterwalking and healing powers. Then JJ becomes Raptor Jesus.
>>30087630actual Gwen before she died or symbiote clone lady thing?
>Test out Null Wave for the first time.>Layla makes a remark that your Thu'um is precise and starts spreading rumours that the Dragonborn has come.
>>30087644Not telling.>>30087630Ultimate Gwen went through some weird stuff, because Ultimate. Though, I only noted it to be the Ultimate version because that supplied a hint as to the answer for >>30087355and his question.
>>30087630Took a knife to school, threatened Kong with it for kicking Peter in the butt, generally edgy bitch.Got killed by the Carnage monster-thing that was a mix of Venom and some other stuff, and then came back as Carnage.
>>30087566So, is chitinous tail like a lizard tail, scorpion tail, or alien tail.Lizard fits thematically, but chitin just makes me think scorpion.
>>30087664JJ has absolutely no idea what that is, because he couldn't afford videogames either.
>>30087566So Crusty, can Kingpin force himself into seeing Creeper’s face through sheer force of will?
>>30087684What was the big event that revealed mutants to the world?
>>30087734Nope.DOOM can, though.
>>30087723agreed, the last Elder Scroll he could have possibly played would have been Morrowind.
>>30087740Horrifying.Does it come with a compulsion to spread our seed?
>>30087723he might if he met the retarded fans that spout arrow to the knee.well he dodged a bullet since that game was garbage.
>>30087747There wasn't one. Mutant births just got more common and soon it was impossible for stuff not to be public.The most famous early mutant footage is a homemade video recorded by a bunch of telekinetic kids.
>>30087761>JJ starts implanting mutant embryos in random people.
>>30087740Honestly I would rather have night crawler tail. Could we have that for less points? The spikes could be an upgrade for it.
>>30087823I think alien tail is cool, isn't that shit armored?
>>30087804We're never going to get called for the Piano Job are we?
>>30087804>homemade video recorded by a bunch of telekinetic kidsYou win 1000 internet points
>>30087866No. It will be a text.>>30087823Nerp.
am I the only that doesn't want a tail?
>>30087843Human bone, that can feel pain.>>30087871I liked the move, but sometimes i wish they made a sequel or had a version with all the cut stuff back in the original.(the crystals used to make creepy sounds)
>>30087871fucking love that movie
>>30087893I want a tail, but I don't want to pay x-points for it.
>>30087893Nope i find it and the tongue to be a useless appendage, wings on the other hand are debatable depending on what type.
>>30087911I want it, because a surprise shank that's 6 ft long and shoots out your ass is always a positive thing.
>>30087843That's the point first unarmored nightcrawler tail. Then upgrade to alien tail.>Except don't upgrade because alien tail looks grose
>>30087911I'm kinda hoping for wings similar to Marcus's from Underworld: Evolution.
>>30087871>slav squatting at the edge of the universe
>>30087684Hey Crusty, can you put the phobia overcoming meter in the Stats sheet for us?
Wings>>>>TailWhen a super villain floods NYC, a tail ain't going to save us.
>>30087897http://1e36a764da2f6b46c156-0fa6f106d654e15326ee14d2a07c02d0.r64.cf1.rackcdn.com/2012/10/CHRONICLE-Original-Script.pdfHere is the script if people want to read it.Some of the cut ending stuff is good.
>>30088059Thanks, I'll check it out.
>>30088056Well, wings aren't an option, so yeah.
>>30088152Crust confirmed they are an option.(he siad we get something from the demon and wings could be one of them.)
>>30088172They aren't currently an option that we can purchase, as they are neither on the mutation or extrapolative mutation lists.
>>30088259I'm willing to wait.better things to buy atm then a tail
>>30088172He also hinted that if a psychic ever tries to read Johns mind, the psychic might get more than he bargained for.
>>30088259Like i said its an extra mutation, that could be free.
>>30088259We can't buy any new powers right now, only alter existing ones. When we get to the part of the story where we can buy new powers he'll put out a new options. Flight and lazer eyes are confirmed to be on that list.
>>30088389We should get eyes that can move independently. Won't be creepy at all.
>>30088389Not a fan of them myself.
>>30088286Well yeah, but the tail is relatively cheap and extra limbs are awesome.
>>30088478>implying we aren't going to rip the back of our pants the first time it pops out.>Implying Kimura wouldn't just rip it off>>30088417What's wrong with having an actual long distance attack?
>>30088528It'll grow back, I assume it isn't even there normally since it's an extra so and so feet of spine that's somehow retractable, it probably spontaneously generates.
>>30088528I wouldn't mind a long distance attack, but the problem is that if we leave it at lvl 1, we don't have that much control.
>>30088528>Implying we'd use it against Kimura.Bashing and energy damage is the only thing that works on her, besides ripping things off would be a battle or strengths, and at lvl 2 we're her equal.
>>30088666Actually, she's just above peak-human as far as I know.
>>30088571http://pastebin.com/98mpGLrhSPINAL TAILRequires: Level 3 Claws & FangsCost: 2JJ becomes capable of extending a highly prehensile, chitinous tail. It is moderately dexterous and possesses a serrated barb equivalent to his current level in Claws & Fangs.2 to get it to lv2, 3 to get to 3, then another to 2 get it7 points for something I'm not sold on just doesn't speak to me.Personally, I'd rather focus on maxing out the core set and healing factor then window shopping the extrapolatives, X points trickle slow enough already.
>>30088703I think we were planning on claws anyways since we can throw them and the become essentially adamantium.But yes, that was after enhanced senses and regen 3.
>>30088726Still doesn't seem like enough bang for the buck.
>>30085116Sometimes it misses the start of the questsjust like me
OPTICAL HEAT BLASTSJJ has developed the ability to project a beam of intense thermal radiations from his eyes!Level 1: At this level JJ may inflict near-immediate second degree burns, and can do more damage with continual attention. He may fire the beam at a spread of up to eight inches at the cost of reduced potency, and may fine-tune the beam of an inch.Level 2: JJ may now inflict near-immediate third degree burns.Level 3: JJ may now inflict near-immediate four degree burns. He may emit a sudden flash of microwave radiation that causes intense pain but no lasting damage. The beam may now be pinpointed to half an inch.Level 4: JJ may now slice through steel with his gaze. He may emit X-rays in order to see through solid objects. The beam may now be extended to twelve inches or pinpointed to a centimetre.Level 5: JJ’s gaze now combusts the air it passes through, generate a modicum of explosive force. He may pinpoint the beam between atoms if he has the appropriate sense, or widen it to a meter.I'm more willing to wait for optic blasts. greater range and less cost than the tail. don't wanna max it, just 2nd, maybe 3rd level.
>>30089007agree fuck max it out with the micro vision for instant kill any thing in line of sight
>>30088287Feather of Beleth comeback confirmed
>>30088726The ability to throw them with bullshit Bullseye gimmick(extrapolative) gives us a natural .50 caliber undetectable sniper rifle. Somewhere in the world some /k/ommando is jizzing his pants for not apparent reason.
>>30089007For some reason I really don't like lazer eyes. I'd be OK with just about any other ranged attack though.>tazer hands and claws both become ranged with enough levels.
>>300892221 point into laser eyes and we get a decent ranged attack.claws and or tasers would take 5-9 points each.laser eyes just so much more cost effective.
>>30089321Aren't second degree burns fucking sunburn tier?Claws are better.
>>30089375sunburns are first degree.
>>30089490and for 2 points on top the initial 1 point investment we can do this.
>>30089490>>30089521Still thinking claws.They'd probably take strength and dex in consideration for damage.
>>300895212 more points in claws and we can cut someone in half. 3 on top of that and we can cut though solid steal like butter.
>>30089554and I still think super strength makes claws redundant in melee and find it too cost heavy to invest for long range.
>>30089612and I'm pretty sure we can just punch holes in people with the strength 2 we have right now.
>>30089662I'm sure that they both stack.
>>30089675I just think investing in claws is redundant for melee when we have strength and cost inefficient for potential long range attacks.
>>30089705If it stacks it isn't redundant, and I'm not sure where that lazer eyes chart came from but I've never seen it in any other thread. What if all thats keeping Kimura from being cut is the lack of oomf behind Laura's attacks? Plenty of reasons to make sure our melee attacks can penetrate anything.
>>30089766the chart was straight from Crusty giving a teaser for the next power setshttps://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/28822143/#28827413if all we need is more oomph, then why just get strength 3 for much less points? Near Spider-man levels of strength, I can't see Crusty giving us any less than a 5 ton limit. More than enough to bludgeon Kimura to death.
>>30089890Well, alright then on the chart.But why not have strength 3 and claws?Might as well overkill.
>>30089927Just saying, punching through an engine block>punching halfway through an engine block.
>>30089890>More than enough to bludgeon Kimura to death.Actually it isn't. Even with strength 3 John would need to cover her mouth and nose with his hands and wait for her to suffocate.
>>30089927X points come in slowly. Claws can't hurt Kimi on their own but Strength can.14 points to finish maxing claws to adamantium comparable sharpness or just 3 points for, what I think Crusty will give us, 5-7 tons of strength.we could get Invisibility and Senses to level 5 and have a point left over to bank with what we would save if we stop bothering with claws.
>>30090002Kimi doesn't have a healing factorand her unbreakable skin doesn't protect her organs. smack her head around till her brain is 5 pounds of pink hamburger.
>>30090111She survived being thrown like six miles into the air and coming down without so much as a bruise. She survived the force of a point blank explosion. I think it's fair to say that her skin mitigates a lot of force.
>>30090063they become psudo-adimantium at level 3. Level 4 and 5 make them projectiles but don't increase sharpness.5 points to claws and 3 points to strength and we're not going to be loosing any hand to hand fights.>>30090111Good point but she does have above normal durability in addition to impenetrable skin..
>>30090111>>30090168Hell, we poked in her the eye (way back in thread 6) and made her recoil. no strength, no claws. base JJ eye poke made her flinch.with strength 2? She no way she doesn't lose an eye. hook a finger in the socket and liberally apply tazer.I think we can potentially make her retreat. Granted I'd like some more martial arts training from Laura before engaging her in hand to hand.also sauce on the six miles thing? preferably issue and series, don't really trust the marvel wikia.
>>30090168Gotta figure out how much energy she was hit with at terminal velocity and then we find out how much force a 5 ton lifting JJ can punch at. Super heavy weight boxers put out ~1000 psi, anyone have any idea how much they can bench?
>>30090307No, she still doesn't loose the eye, here eyes are sensitive, but still fucking invulnerable.Hellion tosses her into the air, same series where Cecilly gets her metal skin ripped off.
>>30090294>we're not going to be losing any hand to hand fights.do not taunt the dice. JJ can fuck up anything at anytime.
>>30090307Something tells me that was less us damaging her and more just an unpleasant sensation. He eyes still have receptors. Just touching them is uncomfortable. And the throwing thing was in New X-Men. Hellion did it.
>>30090352>>30090394I think we could still pop an eye out.>>30090461issue 36.we need a physics friend to calculate which would hurt more the TK toss or a right cross from 3,5, or 7 tons.or maybe Tabitha could just make her brain explode inside her skull.
>>30090523Tabitha's explosive plasma thingys originate from her hands. She can't just look at shit and blow it up.That guy working for Creeper can, though. The dude from Ultimate Spider-Man.
>>30090572...whatWHY WAS I NOT INFORMED OF THIS!
>>30090572a pity, how strong can her explosions get?oh Geldoff, why can't you be a force good?maybe get Cessily to jump down Kimi throat and destroy her innards?I'd think about using Kevin but I don't think he could get close enough (kung fu is treated like a damn super power) and he's delicate on the whole killing thing.well.... if its just lv3 for adamantium level sharpness.... doesn't sound so bad now
>>30090523It's looking like an average benchpress of ~600-700 pounds for boxers, so giving a significant jump for SHW, 1000 lbs for 1000 psi sorta kinda maybe. Thats a half ton, so we can probably just multiply that by 6, 10, or 14. JJ isn't a boxer however, so lets say 4, 8, or 12.
