19th Villain of Christmas: The Queen of Darkness
To help me get caught up with my "25 Villains of Christmas," my daughter Macy offered to come up with one. She developed the concept, and I created the datafile.
The Queen of Darkness (unknown)
Creature from Nightmares
Darkforce Mastery d10
Darkforce Blast d10
Emotion Control (fear) d10
Superhuman Durability d10
SFX: Multipower, as MHR
SFX: Bring the night. When creating a COMPLETELY DARK complication, add a d6 and step up the effect die by +1
SFX: Darkforce Constructs. Add a d6 and step up the die +1 when using DARKFORCE POWERS to create assets.
SFX: Multiattack, as MHR
Limit: Needs shadows. If a BRIGHTLY LIT complication is in play on The Queen of the Night, shut down SHADOW CREATURES. Take a doom from the die pool to restore.
History and Powers
The Queen of Darkness was born in Alaska to parents who were criminals. She began to manifest her mystical powers as a child, controlling a black energy called "darkforce." As a teenager she began to use her powers to commit crimes with her parents. During one criminal escapade her parents were captured by a superhero but she escaped. Before she could free them, her parents died in prison. The young woman, calling herself the Queen of Darkness, swore revenge on all superheroes. She has been battling superheroes ever since.
She is most powerful in dark places, able to summon shadowy creatures of darkness to attack her foes, blast people with darkness, and create fear. Her base of operations is in Alaska.
