Gravitar, Grond, and Medusa are the initial 3 super villains available for Onslaught. The developers have already said they plan on releasing more villains in the future! So who would you like to play as?

    My favorite villain in Champs lore is Tyrannon the Conqueror. . . but he is kinda just a giant tree so I don't think he would work very well.

    Meanwhile, back on topic, I voted for Kiga just to hear him go on a anthropogenic climate change rant because it's stopped snowing in Michigan in the dead of winter.

    I'm not sure heroes that don't get their powers biologically are options with this new system, injecting yourself with Warlord DNA isn't going to give you the power armor, similarity the power of divine beings like Kigatilik, non human beings like Vikorin or Teleiosaurus, or aliens like Firewing, or even magical or technological villains like the Bronze King or Mechanon are not likely viable options. Having said all that, I'll second Foxbot. We'll likely see Menton and Psimon as well.

    Firewing gets his powers biologically, being an alien. Your point? Aliens have genetic material, its not entirely out of the question for teleios to somehow have acquired a sample.
    Well far be it for me to say "This can't be done", all I'm saying is that given what we've seen thus far and my understanding of science and genetics, is that, while alien technology and biology is a well know troop in comics for sources of super powers, it follows that some alien biology might just be too alien to work with human DNA.

    I'm not saying that it's impossible, or that it's something I'm against, just given my understanding of the scope and story of this new content, it's just not something I'd expect. I'd imagine we'll be seeing mostly human villains, or villains that once were human.

    Having said all that, I would like to see Foxbat, and he's a gadget and training type of hero, and not someone that's going to transfer their powers via science serum Macguffin.

    That is a good point, but during the live stream GC said they would really like to do Therakiel and he is like... magics? Supernatural? So I'm sure whatever it is, they'll find someway to explain it away lore wise.

    Fair enough. I'm not against some of these choices that you have set up, most of them just didn't seem likely to me.

    Well far be it for me to say "This can't be done", all I'm saying is that given what we've seen thus far and my understanding of science and genetics.

    Um... we're talking Mad Super Science, not science. Turning into a robot or powered suit would be a bit out of theme for Teleios, but other than that, anything goes.

    In terms of existing powers, it would be really easy to fit Teleiosaurus and Qwyjibo into the Onslaught content.

    Teleiosaurus has 8 powers, but one of them (Monstrous Regeneration) probably isn't wanted, and two of them (Deadly Bite/Hungering Maw) are fairly indistinguishable and should probably just alternate tics on the energy builder. Not sure what special unlock mechanic there should be, possibly something related to consumption. I don't know that any of her powers actually need to have damage adjusted. Powers in order:
    1. Energy Builder is Deadly Bite/Hungering Maw.
    2. Crushing Swipe: this is a fairly fast attack that strikes in a 180 arc behind her.
    3. Toxic Stomp (currently 50' PBAoE, crushing, knockback), may have NTTG. Possibly increase radius to 100.
    4. Mighty Roar (requires xx energy): 100' PBAoE hold. Can be blocked, but hold persists and will strike if you unblock.
    5. Spike Detonation (requires xx energy): currently this is a 100' PBAoE with a linked toxic DoT. I'd probably boost the radius to 150'.
    6. Radiation Breath (requires xx energy): currently this is a 100' cone with a 180 degree arc. I'd probably bump the range again.
    That leaves one power. Monstrous Regeneration is possible but would need something to keep it under control -- if you give her energy gain based on damage taken, it should cost more energy than would be gained by healing the damage it heals. It might be better to take the single-target radiation breath used by lesser raptors and making it available as one of her early powers, so she can pressure ranged.

    I don't have as complete a list of Qwyjibo's powers, what I can come up with offhand are:
    1. Energy Builder is is punching setup.
    2. He likes to throw fireballs around, which currently hit apparently random targets. Probably make it targetable.
    3. He has a 'beats his breast and roars' power, which is likely a stun.
    4. He has a breath weapon that creates a lava pool. It's underwhelming but could be updated.
    5. He's got a stomp attack I'm not quite sure of the animation of.
    6. He's got a 'summon flaming meteors from the sky' power.
    Again, not sure of his unlock, seems like it should be volcanic in some way. Possibly give him a super version of some Earth abilities and have him eventually create a volcano.

    Yup. I liked the days when the only explanation anyone needed was "It's comics."

    Sorry, the list started out with the same names we see all the time.

    You're right, these two would be good entries for the new system. (As would any villain we rarely see or are 'Lair locked' like Kigatilak or Bronze King or etc.)

    You want to make sure whatever villain you bring in is interestingly distinct from existing foes. You also want to avoid foes whose shtick involves healing, which is a problem for Vladic Dracul.
