     The Champions (As A Whole) 


[["Champions, put it all on the Line!"]]

A corporate-sponsored superhero team (actual name "Stingray Security Services Superhuman Response Division"), their mandate is to protect the world and provide primary superhuman support to various Stingray Industries efforts (in this respective order). The Chicago team (and its core membership) is the one first chronologically met in the stories, with the stories of Mike 313/Haster introducing the New York team.

Tropes For The Champions As A Whole:

  • Action Girl: Every member of this group that is female is capable of kicking ass, plain and simple.
  • Band of Brothers: Various members are actual family, some are more of the "Adopted Via Baptism Of Fire" variant.
  • Corporate-Sponsored Superhero
  • Multinational Team: And multi-universal, as well.
  • Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits: A pretty professional variant of the trope, at that.
  • Squad Nickname: "The Champions" to the division as a whole. Becomes Appropriated Appellation because (so far) no other characters have used the more formal name in-story.
  • Slave to PR: Sometimes their assignments are chosen based on which heroes would be best to deal with the press than what would be tactically wisest. As Mari demonstrates in "Rise", even with devices built as countermeasures, sending a team of three heroes (each with a Kryptonite Factor well known to the villain group expected to show up, hence said countermeasures) is a bad idea, and references to the climax (not yet written) by other stories support her point.
  • Super Fic: A number of them are from universes that involved this trope in some fashion.


     Champions: Chicago Team 


[[Rally Cry Will Go Here]]

The first Champions division chronologically introduced on the stories (and formed In-Universe), they are pretty much the veterans (even if many of them are still teens). As such, other Champions teams accept them (even with the occasional grudgingness) as the ones on the top of the command structure after Sylia Stingray herself.

The Chicago Team's main roster includes:

Commander Misato Saotome/She-Hulk

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

An Alternate of Misato Katsuragi that married an Alternate of Ranma Saotome of her home universe, her powerset involves her having the powers of The Incredible Hulk.

  • Amazonian Beauty: She is very much this. Muscle design leans more towards Banner-Hulk than She-Hulk, by the way.
  • Commanding Coolness: The team's Commander (and pretty much the main Commander of The Champions as a whole).
  • Eye Color Change: First sign of her transformation being triggered is her eyes changing to jade green.
  • Genius Bruiser: Veteran military officer, capable of demolishing tanks with her bare hands.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Mild example: it is mentioned repeatedly that a problem with being a "gamma mutant" is that anger comes rather easily, and even if having trained in meditation techniques by her husband, she has to struggle often with keeping her temper down when dealing with The Chains of Commanding.
  • Happily Married: With (a) Ranma Saotome.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Downplayed Trope: in the time between becoming She-Hulk and arriving to Coreline, she has (by her canonical (and even Fanon) standards) severely cut down on the booze.
  • Lightning Bruiser.
  • My Suit Is Also Super: Her clothes are treated with a nano-machine swarm that changes it to a more "appropriate" (read "Hulk-Sized", to not mention Stripperiffic) uniform for super heroic activities.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Ranma. The fact that Misato's Hulk form is a hell of a lot more than One Head Taller than her husband (and so their cuddling resembles more that of a girl with a life-size doll) is a small Running Gag.
  • Stripperiffic: The mention of this trope up there? First time we see the nano tech in action (on "Legends Of The Fourth Of July"), it changes her canonical outfit into a Hulk-sized red sling bikini.
  • Team Mom: The fact that on closer-to-canon 'verses some members of the team were her legally-appointed charges cements this trope's looks.
  • Underestimating Badassery: To Mari when she beats three of her most powerful Champions.

Yui Ikari/Vision

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

An Alternate of Yui Ikari whose soul was placed in an android body based on that of The Vision.

Asuka Langley Sohryu/Valkyrie.

I'm here to help!

Alternate version of Asuka Langley (as she appears on the Evangelion anime and manga), with the powers of a Kryptonian.

  • Amazonian Beauty: More pumped-up muscle-wise than the "Canon" Asuka Langley Sohryu (think light bodybuilder or gymnast).
  • Archnemesis Dad: Let's just say that the man Kyoko married (called "Richard Langley" on Asuka's home 'verse) didn't took well the revelation of her being half-Kryptonian... and when your biological dad is the General Zod and you have no desire to be his lackey, you have this by default.
  • Berserk Button: Don't hurt anybody she likes, don't put innocents in danger, and for the love of God, don't even think of saying that her actions as a superhero, and her constant risking of life and limb, have achieved nothing (seriously, a Predator found this out the hard way).
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Has a big red "A" for "Asuka" (inside the regular pentagonal "Superman" shield) on the chest of her uniform-both out of vanity and to differentiate her from other versions of her that are running around as part of the Superman Family.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: She is this, instead of her canonical Jerk with a Heart of Gold persona (she still has the heart of gold, she is just not covering it up with "keep-people-away-from-me-by-acting-mean" bitchiness).
  • The Cape: A Boisterous Bruiser version of the trope.
  • Despair Event Horizon: On her backstory, she appeared on Coreline after the Trope-naming Mind Rape event... and her powers triggered, making it impossible for her to kill herself (at least by the means she had available until Stingray Industries found her). S.I. training on her powers included her getting therapy.
  • Exact Words: Does this to the Celestial Toy-maker in "The Valkyrie Christmas Special".
  • Fiery Redhead: One of the most famous in anime canon, at that.
  • Flying Brick: Part of her Kryptonian power set.
  • Genius Bruiser: Canonically out of college by age 14. Powerset includes computer-strong intelligence (enough to play the Celestial Toymaker in chess all the way to a standstill).
  • Gratuitous German: Typical of Alternates of Asuka.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Half-human, half-Kryptonian. And yes, it involved sex. It's... complicated.
  • Near-Death Experience: Her backstory (not explored yet) also included a fight against a Doomsday-wannabe monster on one of her first missions. While she did defeated it, it left her pretty much within a hairsbreadth of dying.
  • Stripperiffic: Runs around in the classic (pre-Flashpoint) "two-piece cheerleader" Supergirl outfit, Bare Your Midriff, Dangerously Short Skirt and all. Some Lampshade Hanging about this being a sign of her Tsundere tendencies (she wants to look good, but hates perverts) is given on the short story "Oh, Crap...".
  • Tsundere: Of the "boasting but nice deep down" variety. As an example, the story "The Valkyrie Christmas Special" (where the chess match against the Toymaker mentioned above happens) has her secretly (to her team, that is) delivering a gigantic bag of toys (that she had bought herself) to an orphanage as a Christmas present, and her rebuilding the orphanage when the Toymaker destroys it in his losing tantrum.
  • White Sheep: Of the Kryptonian House of Zod, alongside Kal-El's adoptive son Christopher Kent (birth name Lor-Zod).

Shinji Ikari/Superman Gamma

[[Quote to go here]].

Alternate of Shinji Ikari that has the powers of Superman.

  • Adaptational Muscles: Part of the Kryptonian package is him becoming more muscular.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Took a Level in Badass-via-powers aside, he remains the same meek boy as canon, which means he tries to control his Super Strength very carefully (see "World of Cardboard" Speech below-it's his response to not going all out during a spar with Mari "Captain America" Makinami (who in turn gave the sparring Champions a very embarrassing near-Curb-Stomp Battle). Implication of his speech being "If I had gone all out, I could have killed her".)
  • The Cape.
  • Human Mom, Non-Human Dad: Inverted Trope-it was his mom that was the "non-human" (Kryptonian).
  • Missing Mom: The version of Yui Ikari that is his mom (a veteran superheroine) is missing and (not officially) presumed dead. The fact that Shinji still misses her is an important plot point (summoning a You Are Not Alone moment with his sister Rei) on the short story "Christmas With Super Rei".
  • The Mole: Was captured and replaced by a White Martian operative who acted as this.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With girlfriend Hikari Manhunter listed below.
  • "World of Cardboard" Speech: Gets a variant of it on Rise of the Extraordinary Avengers:
    " you even know what it's like to have all this power, every single moment of every single day, Asuka?! You can turn back and forth from a human whenever you want just by saying the word, but people like me?! Do you know what it's like to always be walking around and dealing with ordinary humans?! How careful I have to be at all times?!" A beat passed before he went on to say, "It's bad enough, just trying to deal with ordinary people! But do you know how hard I have to concentrate during a fight?! Even some metas, all it takes is one mistake, and -!"

Hikari Horaki/Martian Manhunter.

[[Quote to go here]].

Alternate of Hikari Horaki that has the powers and abilities of the Martian Manhunter.

  • Amazonian Beauty: In comparison to a "regular" Hikari Horaki.
  • Cute Bruiser: Hair in pig-tails, freckles, still blushes a lot when she is near her boyfriend... the powers of the Martian Manhunter...
  • Flying Brick: Part of her DC-verse Martian package, including Voluntary Shapeshifting, Psychic Powers (mainly Telepathy) and Intangibility.
  • A Friend in Need: Her introductory chapter has her coming out of "Iron Haven" voluntarily to help find various members of the Champions that had been taken, including her boyfriend.
  • Kill It with Fire: Has the typical Martian fire weakness.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Although she was born on Earth.
  • A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: In her backstory, she tried to read the mind of a version of her fusion with Bane (and her boyfriend, a version of Ranma Saotome fusioned with The freaking JOKER (a technique called "The Clown Fist" was involved). These versions were so psychotic that it drove her nearly nuts, and when chronologically first introduced on the stories, is recuperating on "Iron Haven" (a mental facility for burned-out superheroes).
  • Dark Secret: The Japanese Government didn't used "Green" Martian DNA to enhance her, but ''White" Martian. Like Miss Martian, she uses a "green" form to prevent the hatred of White Martians that many DC Fictions have from making her life worse.
  • Mind over Matter: Can control her own body with her mind (even being able to (eventually) shrug off being ripped in half), also powerful telepath.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With boyfriend "Superman Gamma" (an Alternate of Shinji Ikari that has the powers of Superman). Their immense amounts of cute when together get a Lampshade Hanging on various stories.
  • Stripperiffic: Wears what could charitably be called a borderline-sling one-piece swimsuit with cape, gloves and thigh-high boots. She doesn't minds at all.
  • Super Soldier: On her backstory, she was turned into a Martian by the Japanese Government of her universe to try to have one of their own (in response to the various supers that NERV had). Turns out that the NERV of her universe was the faction wholly on the side of the angels, and so she went turncoat.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Fire, as normal of DC-verse Martians.

Ranma Saotome/Submariner R

[[Quote to go here]]

Alternate of Ranma Saotome that has the powers and abilities of the Namor The Sub-Mariner.

  • Boisterous Bruiser: Typical Ranma, there.
  • Geeky Turn-On: On his case, martial arts. The more superpowered and badass, the better.
  • OT3: In-Universe: Even if sometimes they try to keep it concealed, everybody knows that Ranma's love interests are Rei Ikari (a.k.a. "Supergirl"/"Super Rei") and Asuka Langley Shikinami (a.k.a. "Captain Marvel").
  • Walking Swimsuit Scene: It's mentioned repeatedly that his uniform is nothing more than the classical Namor outfit of a scaly Speedo.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: As with most "water heroes", he loses his strength if he becomes dehydrated.
  • Worthy Opponent: Cap Mari, in the friendly rivals sense.

Asuka Langley Shikinami/Captain Marvel

[[Quote to go here]]

An Alternate of Asuka Langley Shikinami that has the powers of Captain Marvel.

Rei Ayanami/Supergirl/Super Rei

[[Quote to go here]]

An Alternate of Rei Ayanami that has the powers of Supergirl.

Irene "Rally" Vincent/Airstrike

The cavalry is here!

An Alternate of Irene "Rally" Vincent that has the powers of Ms. Marvel. Officially an honorary member of The Champions' Chicago team, she is nevertheless much beloved the by the lot of them.

  • Amazonian Beauty: Compared to other versions of Rally Vincent closer to canon, Airstrike is impressively muscled (and not afraid to show it off).
  • Appropriated Appellation: Her call sign was taken by her to 1) not use the "Ms. Marvel" name (out of respect to Carol and now Kamala Khan) and 2) because her "signature move" involves her shooting down blasts on top of enemy targets from high above. Also prefers "Rally" over "Larry" because more people in America know the "Rally" nickname.
  • Arch-Enemy: Goldie Musou in any form. She also has a particular glee towards hunting down and destroying anybody who produces "Vitamin K" (Goldie's super-drug, nowadays widely replicated).
  • Berserk Button: Drug-dealers as a whole, and those who deal with Kerasine ("Vitamin K") in specific. She also has a brutal distaste for HYDRA.
  • Bounty Hunter: Used to be one before becoming a super heroine. Still maintains the "office" as an occasionally-used cover.
  • The Cape: Wants to use her powers for good.
  • Cowboy Cop: Both for The Champions and SHIELD. Played with that both of her bosses allow this, as long as she keeps to certain rules (mostly self-made).
  • Death from Above: A specialty of hers, hence the call sign.
  • Domino Mask: Part of her uniform.
  • Double Agent: To both S.H.I.E.L.D. and Stingray Industries (in order of allegiance). Interestingly enough, both sides know of this and use her to deliver fake information to each other (and pretty much let her do her thing and receive two paychecks). SHIELD being her stronger allegiance is something Stingray herself supports because she knows pretty well how bad SHIELD can get with traitors...
  • Flying Brick/Flying Firepower.
  • The Gunslinger: Her style switches between all of the types as needed, but her "regular" style mixes both the "Trick Shot" and the "Vaporizer".
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Half-Kree.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Rally's expertise as a sniper remains unrivaled, and the fact that she can (and does) apply it to her energy blasting capabilities is one of the biggest reasons why nobody has disputed her nickname's coolness.
  • Stripperiffic: Her favorite "work uniforms" are the "Warbird"/second Ms. Marvel uniform and the original Ms. Marvel uniform, with the current "Captain Marvel" full-body uniform as a "honor uniform".

Nadia La Arwall/The Illinois Sub-Mariner.

"The ass-kicking I'm going to give you is going to make the front page!"

An Alternate of Nadia La Arwall with the powers and abilities of Namor The Sub-Mariner (mutant half-Atlantean-she is even a very far-off member of the Atlantean royal family tree). Studying to be a reporter, she pulls double duty as a member of the team and part-time member of its PR department.

  • Adaptational Badass/Adaptational Heroism: A pretty strong example of this. While her canonical self was not lacking in heroism, there's a difference between "telling the leader of the Ancient Conspiracy where to shove it (while being held by him)" and "willingly walking into a battle against a rampaging Hulk to save innocents (and having the power and skills to fight that Hulk)".
  • Amazonian Beauty: In comparison to the figure of her canon self, this version of Nadia is incredibly buff.
  • Arch-Enemy: After a fashion, Neo-Atlantis is this for her.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: When fighting, mostly. But seriously, if she says she will kick your ass, she will either kick your ass or (in the cases where you're much stronger than her) give a very good show in attempting this.
  • The Collector of the Strange: Strange factoids, on her case. As an example: while it is obvious that any superhero with inhuman strength will try to perform Car Fu (of the "improvised club" variety) at some point of their career, Nadia is a connoisseur of the best types of items (yes, cars included) to use as an Improvised Weapon with her super-strength.
  • Defector from Decadence: On Coreline, Atlantis is not Boring-it's just rapidly filling with a Deadly Decadent Court (even with the best efforts of those who are heroes to the city). Understandably, Nadia wants nothing to do with the place... and that obviously means that she is occasionally hounded by them because of the incredibly minuscule chance of her becoming a Spanner in the Works anyway... to not mention those from Neo-Atlantis (which is a wholly different faction) wanting her captured/dead because she is an Alternate of their princess...
  • Determinator: Only way to stop her once she has decided to kick your ass is either by knocking her out hard or killing her.
  • Flying Seafood Special/Flying Brick: Her power-set, just like Namor's: amphibious brick. Includes such add-ons like incredible resistance to electricity.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Studying as a reporter, part-time PR dept. rep for The Champions. Pretty. Capable of defending herself, and one of the team's front-line elements.
  • Meaningful Rename: The name she was born to was "Nadia Il Karthon". For reasons known only to herself, she changed it to the name of her canon counterpart (probably assumed that dealing with Neo-Atlantis on an occasional basis was less miserable or something...)
  • Older Than She Looks: Still isn't this, however one of her explicit powers is a severely decreased aging rate... and of course, there's those who still have not gotten the memo of how the universe-collision thing works and actually think that she's the Nadia from all the way back in the 1800's...
  • Shout-Out: Adapted freely from the Ranma ½ Super Fic "Defending" by David Dee, with the writer's permission. Has since entered Divergent Character Evolution.
    • The elements of her being a (student) reporter is a big shout-out to the (oft-reviled) movie of her canon show.
  • Stripperiffic/Walking Swimsuit Scene: Her regular "uniform" is nothing more than a two-piece white bikini with "bandeau" top (and even when she uses other uniforms for the sake of accessorizing, the majority of the time they are other types of swimsuit). She is pretty proud of her body, by the way.
  • Tsundere: In an odd little twist, this is an Enforced Trope for her: she suffers the "oxygen imbalance" weakness of the John Byrne run of Sub-Mariner, which means that one of the first signs of the imbalance screwing up her moods is a severe increase on "tough love" from her. It seriously needs be said that she normally is (except when fighting) very much more civil than her canon self (especially during the first part of the show's timeline).
  • Warrior Princess: Princess of Atlantis (although of a very far-off, minor house). Delivers ass-kicking in industrial capacity.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Typical "water hero" weakness of dehydration.


[[Quote to go here]]

A clone of Kasumi from Dead or Alive, who has been made a Captain America style Super Soldier after being enhanced by multiple versions of the Super Soldier Serum, and having the fighting moves of some of the best martial artists on Coreline uploaded into her brain. Like many other clones of Kasumi, she was made to help the alliance CHIMERA Take Over the World, but defected and joined the Champions.

Rei Ayanami-Prince (Theta)/Wonder Girl

[[Quote to go here]]

An Alternate of Rei Ayanami with the powers and abilities of Wonder Woman. The hybrid clone daughter of Yui Ikari and Princess (now Queen) Diana of Themyscira, a symbol on her home universe of a peace achieved on the brink of an event best described as "Amazons Attack!: The Second Impact (and this time, Well-Justified) Version", she Emerged on the Core Timeline because some rogue Amazons looking to summon a perfect Amazon to stand behind and wage their rebellion on the Line's version of Queen Diana summoned her instead. Adopted by Diana, she became a Champion to try and blaze her own path on the superhero community. So far she has succeeded... barring the occasional rogue Amazon (or other member of Wondie's Rogues Gallery) trying to kill her.

  • Amanda Winn-Lee: "Voiced" by her (subsequently, her regular way of talking is soft and whisper-like... unless she's in combat).
  • Action Fashionista: Very minor version: her idea of "accessorizing" involves changing between various Wonder Woman (or Wonder Girl) outfits if they are too damaged or she feels like wearing a different one that day.
  • Amazonian Beauty: She's a literal Amazon, what would you expect?
    From "Picture of a Morning In Stronghold: "...Hackett took a split second to admire her powerfully muscled back, strong calves and firm butt before turning around."
  • Artificial Human: Is a hybrid clone.
  • Attack Reflector: Her bracelets.
  • Blood Knight: Minor version. While it's not her regular schtick, Gideon 020's Shot In The Dark do says that she is somewhat enjoying the fact that she is fighting a Physical God and both are giving their all.
  • Combat Stilettos: Averted Trope. Although she uses outfits from all over Wonder Woman's costume design timeline (including, yeah, the one with the Thong of Shielding) for the sake of "accessorizing", she totally refuses to wear high heels as part of her outfit.
  • Determinator: To the point that becoming a Human Pincushion during a fight doesn't stops her. If you want her dead, boy, you're gonna have to work for it... and if you want her to surrender (unless you have something like hostages), you better be ready to kill her instead. She will drive herself into a heart attack from the exertion before surrendering.
  • Flying Brick: Standard Wonder Woman powers, including Nigh-Invulnerability, Super Strength, Super Speed, Super Reflexes and superhuman senses (like smell).
  • Friend to All Living Things: One of her powers is the capacity to converse with (and befriend) animals.
  • Has Two Mommies: Was born as a genetic hybrid of Yui Ikari and Princess Diana of Themyscira,
  • I Have Many Names: Her Amazon family (and closest friends) occasionally call her "Theta" ("Zero" in Greek). For anybody else, it's "Rei" and ONLY "Rei".
  • Lady of War.
  • Leotard of Power: Standard Wonder Woman outfit of leotard, boots and other accessories.
  • Nice Guy: Probably too nice for her own good. Rise Of The Extraordinary Avengers, among other stories, shows she can be pretty shy if asked to do something like a press conference.
  • My Hero, Zero: Either her actual name or her nickname both mean "Zero" in different languages (Japanese and Greek, respectively).
  • Oh My Gods!: Obviously will exclaim things like "By Hera!".
  • One Woman Army.
  • Primary-Color Champion.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Even if she accepts they sometimes screw up, she is still an Amazon through and through, and you better believe insulting them as a whole (or thinking of them and her as bad warriors) is a Berserk Button.
  • Sci-Fi Bob Haircut: Although a little shaggy and wolf-like (by her own decision).
  • She's Got Legs
  • Verbal Tic: "Sister" for... well, her actual Amazonian 'sisters' (and actual biological "sisters") and very close lady friends.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend
  • Warrior Princess: Adoptive daughter of Queen Diana of Themyscira. Even if she declines to be an active part of Paradise Island's politics, she still is one on paper.

     Champions: New York Team 


"[[Rally Cry Will Go Here]]".

The Champions team tasked with covering New York (and New Jersey), this team was first introduced on the Mike 313/Haster story "Storm Warning".

The team's main roster includes:


"Naga! I Choose You!"

An Alternate version of Korra, this one was not born with the ability to bend any elements (let alone the capacity to become the Avatar), and so compensated by becoming a top-notch martial artist... and Pokémon trainer. Member of the core roster of the NY Team, liaison between the team and Mon-interest groups on the NY/NJ area.

Katara/Wonder Woman

"[Quote to go here]"

An Alternate version of Katara which, through means still untold, obtained the power set of Wonder Woman. Although still somewhat reluctant as a member of The Champions, she nevertheless provides the asskicking the team requires with absolute effectiveness.

  • Amazonian Beauty: In comparison with the looks of a "regular" Katara Alternate. She is proud enough of this to not care about showing it off via wearing the regular Wonder Woman outfit. As a bonus, she is a literal Amazon.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: "Old Woman" for her, said occasionally by Korra. Justified Trope because they come from different points of the Avatar-verse timeline and, while she's on her teens, Korra first met (a version of) her that was on her seventies.
  • Flying Brick: Part of the Wonder Woman power package.
  • Leotard of Power: Regular uniform: classic Wonder Woman outfit.
  • Mysterious Past: Still unexplored: how in the hell did she became (a) Wonder Woman, any case?
  • One Woman Army: Demonstrated during "Storm Warning" where she single-handedly demolishes a group of Foot Clan Robot Ninja as a You Shall Not Pass! support action for her team.
  • Pals with Jesus: Is capable of traveling to Olympus and talk to the Greek Gods (although this is only mentioned in passing in "Storm Warning", so the specifics are still unknown as of her standing with them-at the least, she was able to ask them if they were responsible to the super-storm that provides the story's conflict and got a honest answer that they weren't).
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Switches between the "Red" and "Blue" roles with Korra, but when she is in Soapbox Sadie mode she is most definitely the "red" one.
  • Soapbox Sadie: The only member of the NY Team (at least on the story where they're introduced) that is not quite behind the idea of them being Corporate-Sponsored Superheroes. Still is a reliable member of the team throughtout the story, and seems to have gotten over it by the next time we see her.
  • Team Mom: Just like the versions of her with the Gaang.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The "girly girl" to Korra's "tomboy".

Mayumi Yamagishi/Storm

"[Quote to go here]".

Alternate version of Mayumi Yamagishi (character of the Evangelion video game "Second Impression") with the powers and abilities of Storm. First member of the NY Team introduced on "Storm Warning". Adapted character from the Superwomen Of Eva fanfic "SOE Tempest Aterna", by Archdruid-Sepiroth.

  • Amazonian Beauty: Packs more muscle than the "Second Impression" canon version of Mayumi (who could charitably be called a "Mysterious Waif", emphasis on "waif" here). Still is pretty small, though.
  • Badass Cape: A pretty visible part of her "Storm" outfit.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: Although the exert of her differences with the Superwomen Of Eva "canon" version of her are still unknown, there are a couple of things mentioned that showcase she is not a carbon copy-such as her having the Storm powers from birth (or at least a very early age) compared to her obtaining them on her teens as in the SWOE fic. She also has not showcased some powers that the SWOE version has, such as the ability to use an A.T. Field (and whether or not she do has this ability is still unknown).
  • Elemental Powers: Typical "Storm" power package: manipulation of wind (which she can manipulate to fly with), rain, snow and ice, lightning bolts...
  • Glass Cannon: At the least this is the "feeling" she delivers on "Storm Warning". Then again, she is fighting a power-boosted Weather Wizard with enough power to create and maintain a super-hurricane and none of her other team members stand up as well to his attacks. With that in mind, she may be more of a Lightning Bruiser with an emphasis on range attacks-but it's not known yet.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she's using her powers.
  • Leotard of Power: Wears the classic swimsuit-style Storm uniform.
  • No-Sell: The storm in her debut story is so strong that she can't even slow it down, much to the dismay of the rest of the team.
  • The Runt at the End: Pretty petite, in reverse to Munroe!Storm's Statuesque Stunner looks.

Kensuke Aida/Spider-Man

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Kensuke Aida with the powers of Spider-Man. First appears on Rise Of The Extraordinary Avengers Coreline, as a member of the Chicago Champions (because of a temporal reassignment).

  • Adaptational Muscles: This version of Kensuke is explicitly described by Mari as having an athletic musculature that is pretty much standard to people with Spider-Man powers.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Typical of Alternates of Kensuke Aida, he is a pretty hard-core fan of certain "cool" things, like superheroes, hardware and Evangelion Units. Becoming a superhero (and then getting paid to be one 24/7) is pretty much a dream come true for him.
  • Powered Armor: Uses the "Iron Spider" armor (most apparently modeled after the armor appearing on the comic version of Civil War instead of the one appearing on the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon).
  • The Smart Guy: Apparently, one of his job descriptions is "team gadgeteer" (example: he devised a force field for his Champions team-mates to counter their "Kryptonite Factor"... and despaired when Mari trashed the fields on her spar with them).
  • Throwing Off the Disability: One of the side-effects of obtaining the Spider-Powers was that his eyesight got fixed. He used to wear his glasses afterwards for Clark Kenting purposes.

Kairi King/Spider-Kairi

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Kairi with the powers and abilities of Spider-Gwen.

As well as the tropes that are present on the canon Kairi, Spider-Kairi has the following Tropes:

     Champions: Indianapolis Team 


[[Rally Cry Will Go Here]]

The Champions team charged with protecting Indianapolis. this team was first introduced in the story CORELINE: A Tale Of Two Maris.

The team's main roster includes:

Commander Bulma Briefs

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Bulma Briefs who is in command of the Indianapolis Champions.


'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Gohan and a member of the Indianapolis Champions.

  • Amazon Chaser: Power Girl is his girlfriend. As a Saiyan, the fact that she is strong (as in "fight him to a standstill" strong) and looks good are factors.
  • Big Eater: Comes with being a Saiyan.
  • Nice Guy: The fact that he is a better person than Karin is mentioned a couple of times throughout "A Tale Of Two Maris".
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: A rather subdued example in that he's quite humble. But he still loves to fight almost as much as he loves food.
  • Throwing Off the Disability: The attempt by Taskmaster Mari from using his tail's Kryptonite Factor against him ends with him disclosing that he has removed that issue through training.

Karin Zorel/ Mari Illustrious Makinami/Power Girl

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Mari Illustrious Makinami and a member of the Indianapolis Champions.

Terra/Blonde Bandit

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Terra who became the protege of an Alternate ofToph Beifong.

  • Dishing Out Dirt: As usual for Terra alts. The differences between bending and her powers did cause some problems to start though.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Is experimenting with replicating metalbending.
  • Power Incontinence: Averted, Toph helped her learn control.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: She Emerged on the Core Timeline with the same amount of lack of control on her powers as canon, but was taken in by Toph and obtained control through her Earthbending training. She was hounded and harassed by Toph's daughter Lin because Lin knew how other versions of Terra had gone bad and expected her to become bad herself eventually, and so Terra decided to leave and seek her own destiny, becoming part of the Champions.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Learned to control her powers with Toph's help.

The team's main roster includes:

Commander Burt Stargazer

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

An Alternate version of Commander Stargazer, he was placed in command of the Detroit Branch. He's somewhat old and set in his ways, but is still a capable commander and fighter in his own respect.

Emily Hart/Steelheart

An Alternate version of Steelheart and a frontline member of the Detroit Branch Champions.

Johnathan Quick/Quicksilver

"(Quote to go here)"

An Alternate version of Quicksilver and a frontline member of the Detroit Branch Champions.

  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Johnathan Quick
  • The Leader: Was the field commander of the Silverhawks back home. Still is a pretty capable one on The Line.

Colonel Thomas Boone Pickens/Bluegrass

"(Quote to go Here)"

An Alternate version of Bluegrass and a frontline member of the Detroit Branch Champions. Usually prefers to be the dropship pilot, but can provide plenty of support on the air and on the ground.

  • Ace Pilot: He's got more time on the air than most people (cybernetic implants means he's got, well, hell, hundreds of years).
  • Colonel Badass
  • Instrument of Murder: "Hot Licks", his laser-and-sonic-blast-spewing guitar (and the basis for the Hakubi Customs AMI (Assault Musical Instrument) Model 19 "Hot Licks" Swiss Army Weapon).
  • Nice Hat: Always has a white Stetson on his head.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: You don't become an Air Force Colonel by being an idiot. He just prefers to be an "aw, shucks" kind of guy.

Android 16

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

An Alternate version of Android 16 and a frontline member of the Detroit Branch Champions.

  • Spared By Adaptation: Survived the events of the Cell Saga and eventually arrived in the Core Timeline.

Rob Simmons and the Orbots

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

An Alternate version of Rob and his team of Orbots (Ohno, Tor, Bort, Bo, Boo, and Crunch), they're part of the Detroit Branch Champions who handle Kaiju-sized problems that might befall the state of Michigan.

     Champions: The Monster Mashers 


"[[Rally Cry Will Go Here]]".

The Monster Mashers are a specialized Champions team that isn't tied to any specific city, state, or country. Led by an alt of Michiru Kururugi, aka the Shikigami Ranger, they specialize in dealing with the supernatural, extra-dimensional threats, and giant monsters that have a nasty habit of destroying everything in sight. This team was first introduced in The Shikigami Ranger And The Monster Mashers

Tropes For The Mashers As A Whole:

  • Battle Harem: The female part of the team certainly qualifies.

The team's main roster includes:

Michiru Kururugi/The Shikigami Ranger

'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

An Alternate version of Michiru Kururugi who found the ruins of the Power Rangers' Commander Center. Recovering the stored Power Coins, he used the White Tiger coin to become the Shikigami Ranger.

  • Chick Magnet: Much to his dismay, Michiru has a penchant for attracting women that borders on the absurd.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: His White Tiger Mode is the most balanced in terms of attack, defense, and speed. Which is why he prefers it for most situations. Can switch to other modes if the situation calls for it, though.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Skilled in both martial arts and magic.


'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Sango that was gamma-mutated as a result of one of the plots of The Leader. Now wields the Green Dragon Power Coin and commands the Dragonzord.


'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Comic Book/X23 that became part of Michiru's harem when "Mitch" encountered the X-Men on his home universe.


'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Jubilee that became part of Michiru's harem when "Mitch" encountered the X-Men on his home universe. Michiru's magic helped her control her vampiric impulses and get rid of the worst vampiric weaknesses.


'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Angela that became part of Michiru's harem after "Mitch" got caught involved in the Gargoyles World Tour. Michiru used his magic to allow her and the rest of her clan to remain awake and active during the day.

  • Badass Adorable: As Gargoyles go, she's incredibly sweet and cute. Will still annihilate you if you dare threaten those she's swore to protect.


'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of Nefertina that became part of Michiru's harem after "Mitch" restored her and her friends return to life. She's the main pilot of the team, able to drive and fly pretty much any vehicle.

  • Badass Driver: She was this all the way back on Ancient Egypt with horse-drawn carriages, and the modern day has allowed her to indulge into her speed-freak pleasures more thoroughly (although she admits it's one of the few ways she truly felt "alive" until she met Michiru).


'"[[Quote To Go Here]]'''

Alternate version of the monster truck Bigfoot from Video Power. He serves as one of the principle forms of transportation for the Monster Mashers.

  • Cool Car: Bigfoot is tricked out with a bunch of gadgets like laser guns, an extending front fender, and the ability to extend upward off his frame, which also functioned as a spring allowing him to launch into the air. Also, he can talk.
  • Sentient Vehicle.


How well does it match the trope?
