Beneath your feet, you feel the stone tearing at the seams, tiny fractures – far too small for your eyes to pick out – scattering through the stage, the earth groaning. You glance up at Alvers and note the beads of perspiration beginning to wet his forehead, and the slight tremor in his eyes – this tiny, erratic little twitch, slowly but surely revealing more and more white and less and less iris.Well, this just says it all about your luck, doesn’t it? The one guy you manage to freak out a little turns out to be an earthquake-o-matic. Man, don’t any of these Hellions have normal, crappy powers? Don’t any of them just turn green or have spaghetti for skin? “Show yourself!” The tremors fade. He hasn’t done any damage to the amphitheatre, but you’re willing to bet that he could if really pushed. You kind of enjoyed the notion these Hellion guys had that you could teleport, but the jig might be up on that. Unless you’re willing to dance with a natural disaster for it.You think about that for a moment.>Present Time: 13:10 PM>Current Funds: $112.3>Hunger Level: 4>[ ] Reveal yourself.>[ ] Don’t.>[ ] Write in.

So how do you think we'll fail this one? Somehow misland our jump and fall on our face?
well, at least it wasn't a life or death roll and Lance probably didn't think much of us in the first place.btw, awhile back there was discussion of people writefagging little articles for the Bugle? I said I'd do one (I'm lazy I know) and I just finished it.not very much and I don't really think I can do the journalist style very well but damn it!

>>29662126>12>nope.jpgWell, might as well have a go. Thinking back to the wild adventure that was Gaby, you recall how she seemed to materialize a step or two off the ground. There was a sort of weight to it, like the air recoiled at the touch of whatever weird, distorting energy was catapulting her over the ken of three dimensional space. You bend your knees and jump, throwing yourself a good five or six feet into the air. You pull yourself out of invisibility as you strike the ground, your appearance accompanied a heavy, earthen thud. Alvers steps back in surprise, but he’s not as shaken as you imagined. He glances from you to the stage, his eyes narrowing. “Did you just… jump?” Ah, drat. “Yes.” You state, quickly, your flat tone endeavouring to rob the matter of all meaning. “But…” His brow furrows for a moment, but he quickly shakes it off, going from confusion to anger nearly on a dime. “…The hell is up with you, man?

>[X] “If I were Creeper, you’d be dead. That’s what’s up.” You lie quickly and with almost unnerving exactitude: “If I were Creeper, you’d be dead. That’s what’s up.”You guess it helps that it’s not exactly a lie. You don’t know if these guys have been putting any kind of appreciable dent in Creeper’s profits – you’re going to guess no, for now – but you know what he can do with a razor. You’ve heard he’s left entire rooms full of men doubled over in their own blood, most of them unaware that anything was amiss until the moment they’re suddenly choking. He looks you up and down, hesitating for a moment. Still, though, this one seems to have more anger than sense (sometimes you can relate to that), and he guffaws spitefully at your assertion. “Man, you are nowhere near as scary as you think you are.” With that, he nods over your shoulder. >Reflex Check>DC16>+2 modifier

>>29663059I don't know if that'd be a reflex check.Or if he could be in any way stealthy.
>>29663033Squish our head inside a football and get Laura or someone strong to toss us into the enemy base. gg get re
>>29663059probably him or Cessily they're the best melee the Hellions got
>>29663037We still can't see him in heat mode, that requires looking at him, which we can't do, scent is an awful way to fight him, and requires enhanced 4 for us, while at five we could conceivably fight him 1 on 1.
>>29663109I'd say echolocation or lvl 5 senses ought to do the trick.
>>29663132we can smell him, hear his heartbeat and see heat vision.Frankly we can already detect creeper if his power is only visually based.
>>29663109I'm pretty sure we just couldn't look at his face, I remember at the bar we were looking at his body. Or were we only able to look at his body because he let us for convenience?
>>29663169Yea, but we can't smell him well enough to recognize him I think?
>>29663171>Or were we only able to look at his body because he let us for convenience?that one
>>29663169>We can smell himNo we can't.>We can hear himHave we ever heard him before he revealed himself?>Heat visionMore than likely wont work.>>29663171He was letting us.
>>29663184Wouldn't know till we try, we already managed to track a helion down, by smell after just one meeting. We've known creeps a good 4 years already.
>>29663185Well we could still notice the heat he gives off anyway. Not being able to look, but noticing heat come from a certain area would make it obvious that it's him. Also if we actually tried smelling for him, I think we could get the smell
>>29663214Yes, but there was a decently high DC required for us to pull that off.
>>29663221Not as easy as Laura mind you
>>29663221or smell the cocaine on him he does cocaine
>>29662848>21>great successYour heart skips. You feel yourself extend reflexively, stretching outward, your senses rolling across the basin of the amphitheatre like some thick, viscous membrane. First you become aware of yourself, all your ticks, all the subtle groans and tiny mechanical whirs of your muscles and your bones, and then you seep into the universe around you, filling the cracks in the air and the earth, flowing, weaving. Two heartbeats. Behind you. Fast, slow, big, small, sweat, hair, metal. Instinctively, you vanish, throwing yourself aside. You land in a crouch, tendons searing with adrenaline, flickering back out of invisibility. The earth where you just stood upturns itself, spiralling upwards in a flash of ethereal green, hanging suspended in the air as if floating in fresh water. You feel your claws pushing through your gloves, fangs protruding from your gums. “Wow. Fast.” You look up. There are three (three? You feel two heartbeats) figures approaching over the other side of the stage. One is Julian, an almost-sneer on his face and his hand outstretched. The other two, you don’t recognize – some black dude in a battered old football jacket and a female figure so utterly obscured by her huge coat and overbearing hoodie that you can only barely discern her gender. Julian lowers his hand. The oscillating threads of earth settle back down into the ground. He approaches with a swagger. “Santo said you were a teleporter, but you’re not, are you?” Well, credit where due. He’s not a moron. “What’s your angle here? You give us what we need, and we let you into the Hellions? Is that it?” His voice is soaked in confidence, in pride. He’s almost certain that you’re here to join his little gang. >[ ] “I just want Creeper gone.”>[ ] “I have my own friends, thanks.”>[ ] “…Maybe.” These guys have a real house, man.>[ ] Write in.

I have a suggestion regarding the Adhesive touch power. The level 2 improvement isn't much of an improvement, so I suggest the following. Remove the lvl 2 alltogether and make lvl 5 something like reverse adhesive touch, which removes friction and makes you impossible to grab hold of unless you let it happen and allows you to slide and whatever.>Adhesive TouchLevel 1: Your hands and feet may adhere to solid structures.Level 2: Your forearms, forelegs, elbows and knees may now do the same.Level 3: You have a stronger connection to adhered substances. Your entire body can now adhere to solid structures.Level 4: You can spread the adhesive effect along adhered substances, potentially sticking other objects/people in place.Level 5: You can hold this adhesive effect on objects for a short time after touching them. The electron disturbance that allows this ability to function now allows you to walk on liquids for short period of time.
>>29663629It's fine so long as we refuse to do and gangster work.
>>29663378Uh...no. Eyes make for a very small target. Plus we shouldn't need to pierce her skin.Electrocution can cause burns on internal organs, muscle spasms, and even neurosis. We bypass her defenses and go after her guts.

And, at the moment, you believe it’s rather important that you appear to be, in the words of the ‘Cudda, a “Hardcore muthafuckin gangsta”. “The Jack stops.” He smiles.

>[X] “I’m here to help you drive Creeper out, by force if necessary.”You consider saying something appropriately vulgar and impetuous, but you find it gets caught up in your throat and dragged back down, out of the light. The taste of Asahi tickles at the roof of your mouth, and for a moment you smell dust and dry-cleaning, and the sharp acidity of gasoline. You swallow uncomfortably and put your brain back together. “I’m here to help you drive Creeper out.” You state. Measured, flat. Significantly less impetuous. “By force, if necessary.” It’d be nice if you could just let these guys get on with it, but you don’t think that was ever really in the cards. Julian’s eyes bloom in satisfaction and surprise. “I know how he operates” You continue. “I know who works for him. I can get you where you need to be, and you can do all the damage you want.” It’s strange, talking like this. You feel so far out of your own part. “Man…” That’s Alvers behind you. “Is this some kinda personal thing?” >[ ] Insert Response.

I guess the description of you… well…”>You don’t like that pause.>“…It’s not great, but one of the witnesses – one of the, uh, captives – said you were flickering, like in and out of sight.

“Yeah.” You respond, suddenly fighting off the inexplicable urge to clam up inside your coat. Christ, you barely understand yourself sometimes. “I guess it is.”That it’s come to this is a stone at the bottom of your stomach. You ignore the gnawing weight of it and breathe in deep, reeling yourself in. Luckily, that hoodie of yours, in tandem with your puffy coat, leaves a great deal regarding your posture and general demeanour to the imagination. You doubt anyone noticed the brief lapse in confidence. You certainly hope not.You grin a little. “Man, don’t you guys read the paper? Or watch the news?” The two behind Julian exchange a quick, confused glance, while continues to study you. “What does that mean?” “It means I’ve already fired my first shot. Anyway…” You glance at your watch, as if you’ve got places to go. 13: 16 PM. “…Can I expect your help?” Julian considers it, but not for on. There’s a spark of something beyond just greed in those peepers of his, something frenetic and wild and reckless, that leaves little doubt as to his reply. “I think we can do business.” He states, his grin almost razor-tipped. “I need to get the gang together.

>>29666016>implying he won't go genestealer
>>29666025its decent, but has a huge cunt of a character that is a red head.
>>29666025>>29666052What show is that?
>>29665997Not this. We do know what we're doing next, Peter can't know about it because he'll stop us
>>29666052I'll give it a try.I agree with this anon's choices for dialog.
>>29666065Good lord, all we're missing is two arms.
>>29666075>We do know what we're doing next,No we don't.>Peter can't know about it because he'll stop usThen it's most likely a bad thing to do.
>>29666025Not my cup of tea, I do like that gif though.
>>29666052I did this quick shitty head sketch a few threads earlier. Haven't done much else for this quest so far.
>>29666070Google gave me 'hataraku maou sama'>>29666067Redhead being a cunt eh? What a surprise.
>>29666070just google fast food anime it one of the first choices..
>>29666103really the only problem I have with it is JJ has slit pupils
>>29665997Not this>>29666100Forcing Creeper out with force and possibly killing him is bad?
>>29666025Eh it has a few very good action scenes, the rest is actually slice of life/comedy so take that as you will.
>>29666075>Implying pipsqueak petey boy stands a chance, mugga powers or no powersPlease. Now if it was that pesky spiderman, on the other hand...
>>29666105What makes her so unlikable is that the main character was the demon lord, but is incredibly nice and was trying to fight for demon rights by starting a war.She couldn't accept him being a decent person because of that.her and him are also half angel.I think they were related as well
>>29666122>Forcing Creeper out with force and possibly killing him is bad?He''s already a ticking timebomb. Let him blow himself up.
>>29666119Fair enough. It'll take me like 2 seconds to fix. Be right back.
>>29666133He was able to hit us several meters away with ease without us having a chance to stop him and was prepared to fight us.
>>29666150That doesn't make for a good story.>So it won't happen.
>>29666103>shittydude, clean up the shadows a little and fix the eyes then this would look great
>>29666161yeah JJ should know that Pete isn't your average mutant by now.
>>29665999This, except salvage shit too
>>29666173This isn't Order of the Stick.
Is this how JJ first found out he was a Mutant?
>>29665920>>29665971>>29666016Not a big fan of it because i know it will need rolls to activate and it could also activate with out us wanting it to.Plus anything that requires for us to activate it would be a bad thing to have if it lowers our healing by 1 level and possibly exhausted.There is also not telling the difference between friend and Allie and us being a stealth build with combat abilities instead of a berserker.
>>29666103Nice.Should be interesting if we ever end up having to wear a x-men suit.
>>29666206And it could change where our abilities lead us later on if what Crusty said was interpreted correctly. Berserk is a shit ability for a stealth build anyway
>>29666185Luara sure as hell knows, but i'm surprised we haven't asked her why she acted weird when she first met him since it would cut out with going in circles trying not to meta game when talking top peter.
>>29666204If the protag doesn't solve the problem, then why is there a story?

You are now ACQUAINTED with JULIAN KELLER (aka Hellion).Next thread will have to be tbc for now. Keep up via twitter: https://twitter.com/CrustyJay
>>29666206Yea, I don't like abilites I can't control too much. I mean, yea it does have it's moments and I might at some point vote to pick it up depending how utterly fucked we are, but I'd rather invest in other stuff.
>>29666206as long as we dont have a "trigger" it shouldnt activate on its own
I'd be far more interested in a long range power.like that heat vision power Crusty teased for the next set.or flight
>>29666266Do we have 2 x-points if so lets get agility level 2.
>>29666266Thanks for the thread Crusty, hope things are going well for you over there.
>>29666266Question! Did Brotherhood or X-Men pick JJ up in their radar?
>>29666287>it shouldnt activate on its ownJust like all our other abilities right? LOL xD
>>29666314>like that heat vision power Crusty teased for the next set.We don't need it.>>29666335>Do we have 2 x-pointsNo, dumbass.
>>29666314I'm a fan of claws my self mainly because its range and get us wolverine tier strong metal claws. which is Kimis major weakness.
>>29666335I think we only have 1 right now.
>>29666347calm the fuck down
>>29666348>We don't need it.This. Pick powers that go well with JJ's style you fucking retard
>>29666357>and get us wolverine tier strong metal claws. which is Kimis major weakness.Kimura's "weakness" is adamantium. We don't get adamantium claws.
>>29666314we already have heat vision
>>29666339Most likely, yes. Cerebro picks up fucktons of mutant activations every day. The X-Men can respond to about 5% of them at most.
>>29666369>>29666348You two need to knock it off with insulting other responders, stop trying to make these threads so hostile.
>>29666377crusty revealed that level 3 or 4 gets us claws as strong as adamantium and makes them shoot out.
Alright, I fixed the eyes and the shadows a bit. Not much but I'll probably do a proper picture some time soon anyway.
>>29666396But they're not adamantium, so they can't hurt Kimura.
>>29666363Oh shit dis nigga about to get serious.Stop being so aggressive, namefag
>>29666357>get us wolverine tier strong metal claws. which is Kimis major weakness.if that were the case Laura would have killed Kimura awhile ago.>>29666348>>29666369Kimura stands a good chance of karating our ass if we get close enough, why not have long distance attack?and don't be rude
>>29666391He means the laser-shooting-out-your-eyes thing.
>>29666396As strong as does not mean the same as.Her weakness is adamantium due to the metals unique propertys.
>>29666400looks better now, looking forward to the warp spasm picture.
>>29666357>>29666377Just wondering, where are you guys getting this from? In everything I've read (and, fair enough, I'n not perfectly refreshed on all things X-23), Kimura is totally invulnerable to adamantium. In fact, she seems to have been designed to be invulnerable to adamantium.
>>29666400wheres the mutant markings?POINTED EARS: JJ Green possesses pointed ears. These are noticeable at close range but can be hidden (or simply missed by less observant onlookers).PSEUDOSCALES: JJ Green possesses scaly markings on his hands, his joints, and in the vicinity of his collarbone. These features are easily hidden by basic clothing.THE M: There is a small M branded into the flesh atop JJ Green's left shoulder blade.
>>29666414Yeah, he's getting annoying.>>29666425We don't need a shitload of weak powers. Having a few strong ones works better.
>>29666266I have a questionAre you planning to use explorative mutations as requirements for unlocking new mutation paths? For example healing vitae increasing the healing rank by 1 or Warp-Spasm increasing strenght by 1? Or unlocking completely new types of mutations to begin with, for example the light absorption and release thing to unlock an actual path to use light powered attacks?
>>29666400Bueno>>29666432some people just don't pay attention or use google
>>29666432>Just wondering, where are you guys getting this from?Marvel Universe wikia.>http://marvel.wikia.com/Kimura_%28Earth-616%29
>>29666425>Laura would have killed Kimura awhile agoWow, it's said every thread that the reason she can't is because she's conditioned not to. For fucks sake, at least try and remember.
>>29666425>if that were the case Laura would have killed Kimura awhile ago.its listed as one of her major weakness and that luara has hurted her before by throwing her severed hand towards Kimi.Though she is able to get hurt to strong electric attack since that is how wolverine knocked her out.(put one claw through breaker and other threw her.)
>>29666454>some people just don't pay attention or use googleSee >>29666463
>>29666437Ears are hidden under his hair. Scales by his clothes. But if you look you can just see his scales around his collarbone.
>>29666409Just as Soviet engineers like to say "It's good enough."
>>29666426Fair does.Kind of dislike the eyeball laser thing myself. Worked well for cyclops but it can be a bit cheesy and dull when combined with other powers. If we want ranged attack ide say stick to the electricity powers and wait for crusty to make a ranged version of it, like throwing small lightning bolts.
>>29666432The marvel wiki and there was a laura comic dump linked in the quest a while back that showed her hurting kimi with her claws.
>>29666432She can't phase through adamantium.That's it, she still can't be hurt by it without sufficient force, but you could cuff her to a large chunk of adamantium and drown her if that idea wasn't completely stupid by the fact that adamantium is very hard to come by.
>>29666495>Worked well for cyclopsSure, but we aren't cyclops. Firing giant lasers won't do well for our stealth.
>>29666445I believe we unlock more exploitative powers when we level up our main powers.
>>29666495Claw lvl 5 = Shootable claws that are ridiculously sharp and rival adamantium in their strenght AND they channel any powers we have. So, we can basically shoot out teslacoils if we get lvl 5 electrostatic touch and claws.
>>29666493>Just as Soviet engineers like to say "It's good enough."Pic related
>>29666509No there wasn't.Kimura cannot be cut by Laura, she doesn't have to ability to produce enough force to do so, the only thing that she can't do is phase through it.
>>29666463Interestingly, there's no citation on that, and I honestly can't think of anything where it comes up. Every time she's appeared, Kimura has been totally invulnerable to adamantium - and, to be honest, I don't think I've ever seen anything where she actually phases through stuff. Maybe this is all in some videogame fluff or something? Has X-23 been in a vidya aside from MvC?Just keep in mind that that site used to cite Wolverine as stronger and faster than Spider-Man. It's not always accurate. Also, thread archived.
>>29666545>teslacoilsThe claws are also as strong as adamantium and depending on how fast they go, can be pretty damn good. We could even make them (maybe) go faster if we swung an arm while firing
>>29666409So Bio-adamantium won't work because?
>>29666571she literally cuts her hand off and stabs Kimi in the hand with said severed hand.
>>29666598As strong as adamantium doesn't mean the same as adamantium m8
>>29666477You've never read the damn comic have you?She can't hurt Kimura because of Kimura's powers, which is density control of her own body, there is no conditioning preventing her from doing so.
>>29666578Also, it's your fucking version of Marvel, if you say she's immune to Adamatium, she is, so there is that then.
>>29666487>making her virtually indestructible and impervious to even adamantium still not seeing it, maybe with strength 3 and claws 5 but are really going to sink that many point into them? would we be able get that many before the next Kimura clash?>>29666477first of I've heard conditioning is the reason>>29666578and this is AU
>>29666613Does it have to be adamantium? I mean if it's got all the properties of adamantium, does it really matter?
>>29666648>all the propertiesWe don't know if it does, just that it's about as strong as it
>>29666648Adamantium is basically magic.Vibranium too, come to think of it.
>>29666624Well, yes, it does come down to that.I'm interested, though. People keep bringing up all this stuff about Kimura being able to phase and being vulnerable to adamantium and stuff, but I've never seen any of it. I'm relatively certain none of this has actually ever been in a comic.
>>29666601No, she handcuffed Kimura to a radiator and blew her ass up.
>>29666635>first of I've heard conditioning is the reasonI swear Laura said she was conditioned, but I really don't want to ctrl+f through every archive for conditioning
>>29666578What were your ideas about agility mutations.I was thinking about walking on walls and ceilings as in - you stand up right and walk like its the ground.
>>29666681For a good read.>>29666689
>>29666648It might have comparable hardiness but that doesn't necessarily mean it has the same molecular structure.Also, Kimura? she's a fucking road bump. Small potatoes in the cosmic order of things. I bet we could take her on right now if we played it right and had the favour of the Dice gods.
>>29666681Hey Crusty, did you remove the need for spinal tail from Warp Spasm?
>>29666684>“I can’t do this.” She states it flatly at first, but by time it’s all out her voice is trembling. “I can’t stop her. I can’t even hurt her. And she will never stop. She’ll never ever stop.”>She leans forward. You can feel her hair against your chest. It’s kinda greasy.>“I will never, ever get away from her.” end of thread 6the wording is vague I'll grant you but I see no solid reason to draw the conclusion its from conditioning and demonstrated her tough skin when we fired the tranq dart at her and it exploded on contact.and fyi guys, the marvel wikia is shit, especially the power charts
PowersKimura's body was designed specially to rival X-23 in an experimental process to achieve regeneration. The outcome being a small sub-conscious control of her own molecule structure. Molecule Manipulation: Kimura possesses a limited ability to phase (pass) herself through the spaces between object's molecules both subsequently ending unharmed and undamaged, if she so chooses. The extent of this was once able to reach inside someone and pull their brains out but an apparent weakness towards adamantium is shown as-well an inability to phase all portions of her body at once needing her to move around walls or open doors as a human. Density Invulnerability: Using a minor form of density control she compacts her molecules increasing Mass (weight) while keeping intact her Volume (size by length, width, and dept) this in effect increases her Density (damage durability) making her virtually indestructible and impervious to even adamantium weapons, her insides, however, are not as indestructible. Still keeping a compact construct of her nerves she can feel the impact but no pain and is not damaged by explosion, fire or high falls. Notice, the phasing is only because of the assumption that she was phasing through peoples bodies and not simply strong enough to push her hand through your chest, the apparent weakness is that she wasn't able to phase through adamantium, which I'm pretty sure is just her unable to bust through it. She's never phased in any of the comics so far as I've seen.
>>29666720So we need at least 20 X points, considering how much Dice Gods dislike mutants.
>>29666720>we could take her on right now if we played it right and had the favour of the Dice gods.Those are pretty damn big 'ifs' around here at the best of times.
>>29666689Ohhh, is that one of those mini books with sort of summarized versions of stories in them? If so, you can pretty much disregard it when it comes to what's canon in this thread.If Kimura hasn't done something in a full story arc, it's not showing up here.
>>29666780>Yes. Probably at Lvl 4, since the conditioning in Laura is very very deep. -CrustyThread 6 Ctrl+f conditioning
>>29666840Here's the wikipedia power description, all the other ones are made from retarded fan speculation.Being X-23's handler, she has indestructible skin, strong enough to withstand anything from grenade blasts to adamantium blades. She is also highly skilled in armed and unarmed combat. Kimura's superhuman abilities enable her to be X-23's "counter"; the Sabretooth to X-23's Wolverine. These abilities were given to her sometime after joining the Facility, an offshoot of the Weapon X Program.
>>29666840oh ok good to know.
>>29666840So she's less terrifying in that she can't phase through things. But more terrifying in that she doesn't have a weakness anymore. Basically a wash.
>>29666855IIRC, wasn't that a response to whether or not you could counteract trigger scent with pheromones?Laura is instilled with a certain level of conditioning. That isn't what stops her from hurting Kimura, though. The very first timr Kimura appears she tries to slice her, then drops an avalanche on her. IIRC she later punches her for like a solid minute.
>>29666789Notice this. Kimura has two powers: Her Invulnerability and her Phasing, both achieved via molecular manipulation and density control. She is impervious to adamantium weapons, but she can't disperse/phase herself enough to phase into adamantium (and thus destroy it), probably because it is too dense and solid.
>>2966679913 if my math is right3 for strength 310 to max clawswe don't rack up the X points like we used to so I don't think we'd get enough in time before JJ vs Kimimura 2.strength 3 or healing 3 and more self defense lessons from Laura Sensei is the way to go imo>>29666855the question he answered>Question for you Crusty. Would Pheromone Manipulation allow us to block out Trigger Scent and if so at what level? Also, wha kind of passive manipulative bonuses should that give and at what level?twas concerning the trigger scent, which Laura still hasn't told us about yet....
>>29666890She was never weak to adamantium, so she was always fucking scary.Her "weakness" is that she can be hurt by blunt force trauma, because her insides are still squishy, and that she still needs to breath.
>>296669182 for Electric Touch 2. More than enough to oneshot Kimura.
>>29666915Yes, which is what I was saying earlier if she does indeed have phasing, however people have been using this inability to phase through adamantium, which she may not even have, since I've read through nearly every x-23 comic and phasing has never happened so far as I've noticed, to mean that adamantium can hurt her, which it can't.
>>29666913Yeah, yeah it was. My bad. I will just ask this once so I don't have to again.What was she talking about when she said something like "conditioned to obey authority"?Does Kimura not count?
>>29666947I'm not saying you're wrong, just that you shouldn't assume Kimura would actually be finished off by that. She's survived electrocution before if I'm not mistaken.
>>29666918I rather increase agility since we are already stronger than her and agility would make us harder to hit and grab.
>>29666947I just don't know man, Kimi has thicker skin than a normal person. It might mitigate the damage, I think Crusty said something on this in a prior thread...I know lv4 would do it no problem though
>>29666947I will second Electric touch 2, Agility 2, or healing 3 nothing else.
>>29666947She's still resistant to energy, although not immune, needs to be higher to oneshot, since 2 isn't even enough to oneshot normal people.
>>29667002>>29666947She has which is why we need 3 or 4 since at best 2 would knock her out, but by then she would have hurt us a bit.
I don't think she could survive Kevin. If we manage to knock her out we could bring him along to finish the job.Problem is, a crazy outright cunt kicking and screaming at his very touch would be a very shocking experience for him. Noriko may not be as affected as him so she may be a better choice.
>>29667010Maybe we should also invest a bit in dodge charms? (agility son, taking hits is for chumps)
>>29667027If it knocks her out she is dead, because word of Crusty from some thread earlier is that we can just fry her brain by repeatedly tasing her head.If i am not talking shit here.
Why bother spending xpoints on taser hand upgrades for Kimura fight when we can just...Shove her head into a pool of water if we really need to kill her? Or get zappy chick to help if electricity is the way to go. I mean don't get me wrong, zappy hands 2 or whatever is fine if we actually think we'll use it for more than that one fight but how often are we going to NEED the ability to fry someone on contact when we can make a fist shaped hole in them or shred them with our claws? We are already stronger than her physically and training with Laura wont eat xpoints so that's my 2 cents.
>>29666981I recall the dialogue you're referencing. Basically, she's been conditioned to find authority figures difficult to stand up to or disagree with. Difficult being the operative word. The Facility thought she was conditioned fully enough that they'd never be threatened by her at all, and clearly that didn't work out too well for them.Basically, don't count on her to be particularly good at arguing your case if you're ever talking to someone like Nick Fury or Cap or anyone you can identify as 'in charge'.
>>29666981Kimura was more into torturing Laura then bossing her around.It was her job to smack her down and keep her line, which she did with gusto.
>>29667097She has super strength and is quite adept at hand to hand, if we manage to pin her then sure, but if she wins she'll rip a hole through our chest.We don't need to worry about it yet since we are going to be facing creeper and need to focus on taking abilities that would be useful against him first.
>>29667097It could also melt steel doors with continued application, I think? It's been a while, I was the guy suggesting we could use it to shortcut electric doors and shit.
>>29667097Well, its also useful for staying non-lethal. And fighting robots if we get it to 3. Tasing has thus far been used in every single fight we got in (not that we got into that many), it is useful. We also need it at 2 for several of those fancy extra mutations. I'd really like to have a tasertongue. One hell of a holdout weapon.
>>29667097we're not always going to be around area with a body of water anon.and taze dudes, I honestly think we'd need taser 3 to fuck her up with it
>>29667122ok sounds like we better learn how to put on our big boy pants when talking to boss types.
>>29667097If gabby wasn't such a stick in the mud we could have her teleport Kimura into a vat of wet cement or something. inb4 mad phasebros
>>29667122Oh, this is great then. At least Laura can help us with her, even if she thinks she can't actually do damage
>>29667097I prefer getting senses level 4 or agility level 2 since both of those will be helpful soon and during that fight.
>>29667284If we had Wampiric Touch ve could drain her dry!
>>29667284her control isn't that great and why just a vat when just she could trap kimi in that pocket void dimension she goes to in between jumps we could have been trapped in when she accidentally ported in thread 26 (or was it 25?)
>>29667223well obviously the water thing would need to be a bated trap.>lure kimura into a YMCA pool area, go invisible, proceed to freak her the fuck out by sending things flying with our strength, causing random electrical equipment to short out making footprint shaped holes on the walls and ceiling before going in for the kill.
>>29667366we would never roll well enough for that.and she has goons backing her up too
>>29667330does she go to a pocket dimension? I don't remember at all, but that'd be neat too. I can imagine gabby forgetting she did that though and the next time she trys to teleport a VERY angry and hungry Kimura manages to catch her on her way through...
>>29667284I don't think phasing would work on her even if we did have it. But teleporting probably would work.
>>29667439well, she might suffocate in thereCrusty, does that void Gabby ports through have oxygen?
Alright, everyone what do you feel JJ's theme song is? Let's see what everyone thinks.
Here is the kimi page.
>>29667475The dimension night crawler teleports though is literally hell. I don't know about Gabby tho.
>>29667475At the very least it has to be somewhat similar to earth's atmosphere I'd think... If it was too different I imagine whatever came back out wouldn't be alive anymore.
>>29667501sad song for a sad muggahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OFHXmiZP38
>>29667439She goes through something. For all you know, it might just be more like she's opening a wormhole or temporarily shifting out of three dimensions.>>29667475Maybe.
>>29667550Didn't Gabby's ports give off a sulfuric aroma?
>>29667526Ah, yeah, that's just a case of bad reading comprehension. She can't phase, she puts her finger into someone's chest just by being very hard. Push on something and, if the something can't move back, whatever's softer is going to give way eventually.
>>29667501http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMYgSf6xM5gEspecially for scenes with just JJ and Laura I think.
>>29667601Ozone. They also appear to cause slight electrical bursts.
>>29667645The adamantium weakness is a combination of that misconception plus when she was cuffed with adamantium handcuffes to a radiator.Readers assumed she could phase and then saw she couldn't when she was cuffed, thus luladamantiumweakness.
>>29667537She spends less than half a second in that dimension each teleport. Contrary to popular belief the human body can survive a few minutes in total vacuum before ding. Unless it had acid atmosphere or something, she would only need to hold her breath while teleporting to avoid any side effects.
>>29667720I wasn't really thinking vacuum, there are plenty of things that could go wrong that would kill a person in half a second when it comes to portal hopping like that. but I agree that it's unlikely anything like that would happen to her/us, that would just be the most bullshit game over ever.>it's the elemental plane of Otters, have fun with your coming changes JJ, hope you like mussels.
>>29667823>otter dimension>entire dimension made of otters>eventually Gaby's mutation turns her eyes into portals to the otter dimension>constantly shooting otters>can't turn it offWell, I guess I know what my next big plot twist will be. Thanks anon.
