Powers & Skills: Super Strength, Flight, Sonic Attack, Hand to Hand Expert
Aquanaut first appeared on British shores in 1940 after the battles of Narvik, demanding cessation of all human hostilities on the ocean. Diplomacy failed, leading to Supreme conflict as she and Sovereign battled it out on the streets of London. Aquanaut was not seen again until after Pearl Harbor when she agreed to help the American war effort in exchange for help in protecting the oceans. At war’s end, Aquanaut stayed to help her friends and became a valued member of the Supreme Alliance. With her disappearance all contact with Atlantis was also lost, and is now dismissed by most as a myth.
Powers & Skills: Advanced melee weaponry; energy accelerator; heavy armour
The finest soldier the Professor had ever commanded, Sgt. Mikhail Zolnerowich volunteered to become the Supreme known as Universal Soldat, the superhuman symbol of Soviet military might. As the Cold War began in the aftermath of WW II, Universal Soldat was among the first recruits to the Red Republik. Years of service in combat proved Zolnerowich’s mettle. However his greatest test was hidden from the Soviet citizenry; the experimental batteries powering his mighty armor were slowly killing him. Now displaced in time, Professor Hammer knows it is inevitable his strong right hand will need replacing.
Time to learn a little more about these Supreme Leaders.
Powers & Skills: Master Tactician & Strategist; Peak Human Capability
Col. John Schneider, America’s greatest hero. The man who became Spybreaker volunteered for an experimental process, to combat the emerging threat of enemy Supremes in war-time. The only survivor of the Llusk-Van Der Beek process that saw the sacrifice of dozens of the best and bravest, Spybreaker was a hero of the home front before taking to the front line, valiantly leading the Supreme Alliance and defending the American way against the Axis. It was during the Cold War against the Red Republik that Spybreaker and his team were lost, and a shadow fell across the greatest generation of Supremes.
Skills & Powers: Cyber-Enhanced Strength; Exceptional Intelligence; Inspiring Leadership with an iron fist.
The renowned Russian Professor Maksimilian Mikhailovich Zolotov is a veteran of World War II. After a military career distinguished by his trademark win at all costs attitude he turned his mind to science. His work sought to create Supremes through genetic manipulation, and cybernetics. After a lab accident he designed his own replacement limbs and cyber-jaw. His brilliant mind was directly involved in the creation of every member of the Red Republik in one way or another. Under his leadership the Red Republik terrorized the free world for years until their mysterious disappearance.
Powers & skills: superhumanly strong cyber-arm; inspiring leader; indomitable will.
Dead Eye is the unofficial Leader and focal point of Pulp City’s Supreme vigilantes, those mostly working outside Heavy Metal, Blood Watch and even the Way. He has been on the Supreme front line since he first reappeared in public view, trying to atone for his personal fall from grace. A great tactician, Dead Eye is an unwavering defender of Pulp City equally adept at inspiring others as well as bringing the smack-down to any who threaten his home town!
Dead Eye combines personal courage, cyber enhanced strength, and a tactical acumen that impresses even C.O.R.E. If you like the kind of Leader who is always at the forefront of conflict then Dead Eye might be for you.
Dead Eye has high strength and an outstanding melee Action: Power Smash. This allows him to use the Smash It Up bonus and hit people with cars etc. for an extra die. He also has a ranged Ray Action, allowing him to hit multiple models at once. Finally, Walk It Off allows him to remove Stun and Suppress from friendly models, a useful counter-measure especially against Necroplane and Coven who use Suppress often.
Perhaps his biggest strength is his Tactics Power, allowing another friendly model to Activate directly after Dead Eye’s first Activation every round – an incredibly potent tool for setting up combos. His Faction Leader Card gives bonuses to any friendly model attacking models of higher Level, excellent when fielding a number of Level 1 Supremes, or to help counter an enemy Powerhouse.
Dead Eye works great with the Hero Starter set, as they are all effectively Indy Hero’s and represents a smart way to quickly bring your team up to Level 9. Add in Dead Eye’s favorite Minions the Vigilantes for more board control (they benefit from extra dice against Enemies when in Dead Eye’s Team), and really kick things off.
