The Supergirl TV show...characters in ICONS Part II

Note as of October 7, 2017: I just realized I double posted part 1 instead of posting both parts. I'm editing this to include the other characters, but won't change the title to say "Part 2" until I'm done.

  • Previous caveats apply.
  • I leave Maxwell Lord as an exercise for the reader
  • Changes from the second season won't be here, though I might do a second season post that includes some of those characters.
  • Characters get listed Determination only if they're heroes and player characters.

Catherine "Cat" Grant

Prowess Coordination Strength Intellect Awareness Willpower Stamina Determination
3 3 3 4 4 4 7 6
Specialties Qualities
Business: Expert (+1), Martial Arts (+1), Arts (Journalism) Expert (+2)
  • Queen of All Media
  • Loves her boys
  • Adores Clark, rivals with Lois
Powers
None

Okay, I snuck in one Season 2 thing in the Qualities, but feel free to replace it with Wealthy. At the end of Season 2, it's revealed that she does know Supergirl's secret identity.

Winslow "Winn" Schott, Jr.

Prowess Coordination Strength Intellect Awareness Willpower Stamina Determination
3 3 3 5 3 3 6 6
Specialties Qualities
Science Expert (+2), Technology Master (+3)
  • Self-taught in almost everything
  • Bad name by association, and craves love
  • Is this awkward?
Equipment
Cellphone, laptop, vintage toys. In the second season, the DEO sometimes makes him wear a tactical vest in the field.

Winn has a specific character arc in season one, which involves becoming not infatuated with Kara. In the second season, he became the go-to technobabble guy, but he also got a girlfriend and showed tremendous loyalty there.

James Bartholomew Olsen

Specialties Qualities
Art (Journalism) (+2), Art (Photography) Master (+3)
  • Connected to Superman and Supergirl
  • Make justice and the system better
  • Infatuation has always made me do strange things
Equipment
Signal watch.
Cameras.

It's reasonable to assume that he actually has lots of specialties and obscure knowledge by virtue of having been Superman's pal and being shoved into things a lot. We don't see much evidence of it in the show.

In the second season, he gets an upgrade in specialties and powers (and probably a point of Coordination) through the Guardian identity.


Bizarro

Prowess Coordination Strength Intellect Awareness Willpower Stamina Determination
4 4 9 2 5 2 11
Specialties Qualities
None
  • Pliable and Unformed
  • The Opposite of Supergirl
  • Forming
Powers
Flight 7
Invulnerable (Damage Resistance) 7
Ice Vision (Blast) 8
Heat Breath (Blast) 7

You can justify higher levels for the powers to make her truly a mirror of Supergirl, but I figured she was in the ballpark but not quite the same.

Lobo

Prowess Coordination Strength Intellect Awareness Willpower Stamina Determination
7 4 8 4 5 6 14 1
Specialties Qualities
Power (Binding), Stealth, Wrestling
  • The Last Czarnian
  • The Main Man, a Mostly Honorable Mercenary
  • If There's No Collateral Damage, You're Not Doing It Right
Powers
Super-Sense 1 (Can track someone anywhere)
Hook and Chain (Binding) 10
Bolter Gun (Blast) 7 Extra: Frag Grenades (Burst)
Tough (Damage Resistance) 5
Regeneration 5 Extra: Immortality 5

We heard him alluded to on the show, so I did my version of Lobo for ICONS and for this setting. Though Lobo can clone himself (the Duplication power), it's not under his control, and it's best used as a GM fiat thing. If it happens while fighting the players, they get a Determination point.

Lobotomized Non

Prowess Coordination Strength Intellect Awareness Willpower Stamina Determination
6 5 10 2 6 2 12
Specialties Qualities
Martial Arts, Technology Expert (+2)
  • Last Son of Krypton
  • Lobotomized
  • Some Feelings Remain
Powers
Flight 8 A Mission to Accomplish
Damage Resistance 7 Limit: Not vs. Magical Effects
Heat Vision 8
Super Senses 4 (X-Ray, ultrasonic hearing, +1 range hearing, +1 rng sight) Stronger Together
Freeze breath (Strike) 7 Extra: Burst

This Non is more like the Donner Non. Totally non-canon, but I started a Supergirl adventure, and he features in it. So does Lobo, for that matter.

Second season characters should probably include Miss Martian, Mon-El, Lena Luthor, Lillian Luthor, the Parasite, and more. Superman you can probably do by subbing Specialties and Qualities into the Supergirl writeup.
