If the Avatar and spirit are well matched, then the spirit cannot grow (obviously) but also will not be starved. It will not overwhelm the Avatar (note this is not the same as not having a marked effect on the Avatar's behaviour), and will have a variable effect on the Avatar's physiology.


The Champion force has been shaped by the previous Champions so that it will always be well matched to the next Champion.

Um, no?
Champions do no such thing. The superhero community screen powerful Avatars to choose the best 'next match', who is on call 24-7 in case the current Champion dies, and who is continually groomed into the role he/she would need to play.

If anything, the Champion Force is shaped by the current Champion to match the current Champion. Or, at least, that was the case for the first few Champions...

Have Fun!

Alternately, Champion could in fact be Captain Marvel's stand in, another flying brick who is magically empowered.


There are some Marvel inspirations, like Phase. Diane seems to refer to a marvel character called The Vision when talking about Phases powers (Though I keep thinking of Kitty Pride, AKA Shadowcat). Chaka could be inspired by Taskmaster, another character who can learn by seeing something once and then being able to do it with as much skill as the original performer.


I have reffed The Vision because he (or it depending on the continuity) can do the light and also the heavy. That, and Ayla prefers that I reference a guy, and not a superheroine. Very Happy

Okay, this is a concept that has been used in one way or another for decades. Hard scifi, schlock 50's movies, mutants powers, alien powers, you name it. Ayla's generic power set is not new. Ayla has done a few creative things with it.

Diane




Hhhmmm I always saw Ayla as the batman of the group. Besides the obvious lines like obscene amount of money, tragic family history, a burning desire to set the world right(his opinion) and costume similarity.

Ayla is the one with the most at hand than anyone else, much like batman, while you have the powerhouses on your side like fey, hank and tenneyo she is the one that plans the most about how many different ways to bring them down in case they go rogue like in birthday brawls ch.17. Much like batman he's so paranoid about... everybody, that he could probably think of a way to take down even tennyo in a crunch if it ever came to that.

I see Chaka was the flash, Jade as plastic and, Hank as superman, Fey was zatanna, Chou was the Martian manhunter, and Tennyo was wonder woman was far as personality shown goes

I think that the similarity is superficial. Batman is driven by obsession; a burning hatred of the criminals that took his parents from him. He seeks to take act against them directly.

Ayla certainly has his own inner demons, but they're not in the same league as the Dark Knight's.

I think a better comparison might be with Tony Stark. At various times he funded the Avengers - as Ayla seeks to do with TK. He, and his father efore him did things for which he wishes to atone, (the whole weapons biz), again like Ayla.

Actually, atonement is a fairly common thread amongst the rich, industrialist superheroes, so there might be others who fit better.

But of course, Phase is a sufficiently original creation that he isn't all that much like any particular comic character.
