Superpowers Document in The Spekter Superhero Universe | World Anvil


What we know about orgone-generated superpowers

  • While superhumans have access to a wide range of core powers, they specialize in 3-4 primary powers, several secondary powers, and often forget about the ones they haven’t mastered.
  • Emotions generally trigger the onset of a superpower, and a one's emotional state can impact one’s ability to wield one or more superpowers.
  • A given superpower has one state: Uncontrolled, Controlled, or Involuntary
  • Superhumans can wound and kill each other as they have the strength and ability to do so, but it’s not easy.

Superhuman classifications

Power Rating to Classification calculation

  • Individual superpowers hold a Level 1, 2, or 3 rating.
  • The total sum of a superhuman’s individual power levels establishes their total Power Rating.
  • The Power Rating establishes the classification of the superhuman.
The higher the Power Rating, the more powerful the superhuman.
  • Rating 1-20: Class 1
  • Rating 21-40: Class 2
  • Rating 40-60: Class 3
  • Rating 61-80: Class 4
  • Rating 81-100+: Class 5
At the end of Book 5: Balance of Power, the 4 surviving superhumans have the following classifications:
  • Catamount: PR81/Class 5
  • Blue Spekter: PR61/Class 4 - but much remains unknown as to how the unexpected second infusion enhanced Blue Spekter's powers.
  • Helion: PR43/Class 3
  • Nightmare: PR41/Class 3
