The Book of Absorbing Man

C3G MARVEL WAVE 5
WORLD'S VILEST



The figure used for this unit is a Heroclix figure from the Mutations and Monsters set.
Its model number and name are #019 / Absorbing Man.
_____________________________________________________________
Character Bio- While Carl "Crusher" Creel was serving time in prison for an aggravated assault he committed while being part of an extortion racket, he became an unwitting pawn in Loki's plan to defeat Thor. Loki added an enchanted potion to Creel's drinking water in prison and the result was that of Creel gaining the strange power of being able to absorb the physical properties of anything he touched. Creel used his new powers to break out of prison and began calling himself Absorbing Man. He became one of Thor's strongest mortal foes and has battled The Hulk, the Avengers, Spider-Man and many others. After the Secret Wars, Absorbing Man met the villainess Titania and they became partners in crime and romantic partners as well.

-Rulings and Clarifications-
  • Q: In Power Absorb, it tells you to remove Absorption Markers when Absorbing Man takes wounds. Do you remove those markers in addition to placing wounds, or instead of placing wounds?
  • A: In addition. For example, if Absorbing Man was receiving 3 wound from an attack, you place 3 wound markers on his card and then remove 3 Absorption Markers (or if you have less than that, you remove a many as you can).

Re: The Book of Absorbing Man

NAME = ABSORBING MAN
SECRET IDENTITY = CARL CREEL

SPECIES = MUTATE
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = CRIMINAL
PERSONALITY = GULLIBLE

SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 5

LIFE = 6

MOVE = 5
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 2
DEFENSE = 6

POINTS = 260


ADAPTATION
Before moving, you may remove all Absorption Markers from this card. If there are no Absorption Markers on this card, Absorbing Man does not have to stop his movement when entering a water space, Slippery Ice and Heavy Snow only count as 1 space when moving, and Absorbing Man never rolls for molten lava damage or lava field damage.

POWER ABSORB
Before moving, you may remove all Absorption Markers from this card and choose an adjacent figure to Power Absorb. Roll the 20-sided die. If you roll 7 or higher, place Absorption Markers on this card equal to the Defense number on the chosen figure's card. Add one to Absorbing Man's Attack number for each Absorption Marker on this card. Anytime Absorbing Man receives any number of wounds, remove one Absorption Marker from this card for each wound he receives.

BALL AND CHAIN SWING SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 1. Attack 5.
If Absorbing Man has not attempted Power Absorb this round, he may attack with Ball And Chain Swing Special Attack. Any figure adjacent to Absorbing Man is affected by Ball And Chain Swing Special Attack. Roll 5 attack dice once for all affected figures. Each figure rolls defense dice separately.

SUPER STRENGTH

Re: The Book of Absorbing Man

Looks great!
There's some inconsistent language on Power Absorb right now: "Add 8 to the roll if Absorbing Man attempts Power Absorb a friendly figure or a Destructible Object. Subtract 4 from your roll if you attempt to Power Absorb an opponent's Tricky figure."
You probably want it more like:
"Add 8 to the roll if Absorbing Man attempts Power Absorb a friendly figure or a Destructible Object. Subtract 4 from the roll if Absorbing Man attempts to Power Absorb an opponent's Tricky figure."
I think you've nailed the theme here and he looks like he'll be fun to play and able to stand up well to Hulk and Thor without being broken against everyone else - or even costing as much as Hulk or Thor.
Why did you want to make him immune to the Shrinking Ray Gun glyph, though?

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Add 8 to the roll if Absorbing Man attempts to Power Absorb a friendly figure or a Destructible Object. Subtract 4 from the roll if Absorbing Man attempts to Power Absorb an opponent's Tricky figure with the Tricky personality."


• If you roll 1-4, Absorbing Man receives a wound and his turn immediately ends.


• If you roll a 5-12, nothing happens.


• If you roll 13 or higher, for the remainder of this round or until Absorbing Man successfully Power Absorbs again this round, you may add the defense number of the chosen Unique Hero or Destructible Object's Army Card to Absorbing Man's attack and defense numbers.



SIZE ABSORBING (parallel construction with Power Absorb)


If Absorbing Man is adjacent to any obstacle such as ruins, his height and size are considered the same height and size of that obstacle. Absorbing Man’s size can never be altered by a special power or Glyph.

Very nice concept!

Devil's Advocate questions (no offense intended)

What is his height if he is:

A) at the base of a single castle piece;
B) at the base of a single castle piece with a wallwalk piece and a battlement on top;
c) at the base of a double-stacked castle wall or higher (a la Corner High Rise);

and at the other end of the spectrum:

D) adjacent to a single battlement

I know that I do not know.

Re: The Book of Absorbing Man

Thanks Bats, I changed the wording to at least make it consistent and fixed the mini picture link. I will add the comic art options you had later.

Griff asked about the Shrinking Ray effect if Absorbing man is size huge when adjacent to a Ruin and to avoid it with that wording like the Gladiatrons.

For Sir. G. Thanks for the suggested wording, I added your suggestions. I guess his size would be the size of that castle wall etc. and regardless it should just make him huge and immune to certain powers that only affect small, medium and large figures. And no one should ever take offense to a question or concern regarding a power or design, as that's what we are here for, to ask those questions and make sure things work or are clear. Your questions and critiques are always certainly welcome, those questions are what help make C3G products come out so great.

For the bases (opposite end of spectrum) perhaps if I say in the power "if Abosorbing Man is adjacent to an Obstacle such as a ruin that has a height greater than his..."

Re: The Book of Absorbing Man

That's a good suggestion on obstacles with a height greater than his being what the power deal with ...

Looks good Hahma. I don't know the character, so I have to ask what's the idea of the height change?

Cheers

I also tweaked it a bit more, in case he's adjacent to more than one obstacle. I just said "considered the same height and size of the obstacle he's adjacent to with the greatest height." Hopefully that covers it.

Absorbing man can absorb many things. He can absorb, the metal in Thor's hammer and gain the strength and durability of that material, he can touch a diamond and gain the properties of a diamond and he can touch a building and not only absorb the strength and durability of the material the building's made of, he can gain size from the building too.

He's given Thor and Hulk good fights and usually gets beaten by being tricked. One time he was battling Thor and Thor created a vortex around himself by swinging his hammer. Absorbing Man absorbed the properties of the Vortex and reached through it to touch Thor's hammer. Thor knew there was no way he could beat him with having the power of Mjolnir, so he created another Vortex, but this time when Absorbing Man reached through it, it was different as Thor created a different Vortex, one that transported Absorbing Man to another dimension.

Here's a image of him having absorbed some size from a building.
