Marvel PBEM: Character -- O.M.A.C.

Hard-pressed to come up with a rationale for O.M.A.C. in the Marvel setting, I still have to clear the backstory with the player. However, here's my first pass at the One Man Army Corps.

O.M.A.C. (Buddy Blank)

Affiliations: Solo [ d10 ] Buddy [ d8 ] Team [ d6 ]

Distinctions (Use at d4 for 1 PP or Use at d8):
  • One Man Army Corps
  • OMAC Must Live So That Man May Live
  • Eye In The Sky

Molecular Engineered Powers: Superhuman Reflexes [ d10 ], Superhuman Strength [ d10 ], Superhuman Stamina [ d8 ], Superhuman Durability [ d8 ], Superhuman Senses [ d10 ]
  • SFX -- Area Attack: Add a d6 and keep an additional effect die for each additional target
  • SFX -- Remade by Brother Eye: Before you make an action including a MOLECULAR ENGINEERED POWERS power, you may move your physical stress die to the doom pool and step up the MOLECULAR ENGINEERED POWERS power by +1 for this action.
  • SFX -- Focus: Replace two dice of equal size with one die +1 step larger
  • SFX -- Big Brother is Watching: Spend 1 PP or use an effect die to create a WATCHED complication for a target. You may track that target anywhere until the complication is removed or SUPERHUMAN SENSES is shut down
  • Limit -- Blanked: Shut down any MOLECULAR ENGINEERED POWERS power to gain 1 PP and revert to Buddy Blank. Recover power by activating an opportunity or during a Transition Scene.

Combat Master [ d10 ], Menace Master [ d10 ], Science Master [ d8 ], Menace Master[ d8 ]


Affiliations: Solo [ d6 ] Buddy [ d8 ] Team [ d10 ]

Distinctions (Use at d4 for 1 PP or Use at d8):
  • Just Another Face
  • Voice of the Common Man
  • That's Not Fair!



  1. Why not have OMAC be another super-soldier iteration? He could come from an alternate future (possibly Deathlok's) or be another government agency's experiment in the present.

  2. I did think about a super-soldier element, with Vita-Rays being an essential part of the Buddy Blank to OMAC power-up. It's the construction of Brother Eye that's got my mind churning.

    But I'm trying to figure a combined DC/Marvel world eventually, so maybe this'll be part of it.

    Anyway O.M.A.C. has time-travel as part of the backstory, so it's entirely possible he's from an alternate future -- will check out Deathlok's backstory. Thanks!

  3. I like the alternate future idea Alex!


That's my side of things. Let me know what you think, my friend.
