PostSubject: Canon Related Question   Sun Mar 13, 2016 6:15 am

Not sure why it took me so long to actually ask this. But as my post count toward 750 gets closer, I decided I should ask this well before I actually get to the mark so I would have time to... adjust my decision based on the answer.

I am considering picking up Blackfire, among a select few others that catch my interest. Slade was another but I feel the energy I'd need to play him correctly and consistently would suffer.

ANYWAY... my question is regarding Canon powers and weaknesses. Using Blackfire as my current example: Tamaranians are... not exactly weak. For a basic rundown of Blackie's powers, she can fly- through space I might add, throw energy bolts AND shoot eye beams, is super strong AND durable, and apparently is unaffected by radiation. Now I'm pretty sure the number of powers here still fit within the number allowed- but my question is more focused on the weakness.

What specifically hurts Blackfire? She's arrogant, which counts as a lame mental weakness of sorts but what of her physical weaknesses? Being allergic to Cronotons or w/e the hell they were called in that ONE episode won't even be a factor because Time based anything isn't allowed here.

So how does/will staff take this into account when reviewing canons? Because I want to be as accurate as I can for any canon I finally decide to grab. Will I have to "invent" weaknesses that may or may not exist that will more then likely not make any sense? Or will they be left alone as seen in the show?

Because there are some other characters I can name that don't have any apparent/easily exploitable weakness. Psimon and Brother Blood for example.

I will most likely not go after any DC canons that do not actually appear in the show, just the ones from the show.

Well for one thing, Tamaranian powers are affected rather heavily by emotion, as evidenced by the episode when Star and Raven swapped bodies. Joy affects their flight, fury affects their starbolts, etc etc.

Now that being said, I don't know of a SINGLE physical weakness that a Tamaranian possesses, and this is the main reason why I suggested making the OC canon slot a bit stronger, as canons are rather...well...strong.

However, this is a rather clear issue that we'll have to address in the future, should your or anyone else actually choose a canon. However, I was initially under the impression that canons will be pulled back in power to match our OCs. So have fun with that.

OK, so I return. Apologies, Star isn't a very prominent hero so we don't see a ton of her in the books, thus I had to do some research. Apparently all Tamaranians require energy consumption to adjust their bodies to the harsh environment of space, meaning she can't survive in hostile environments (space, lava, underwater, etc etc) forever. Additionally, no Tamaranian has ANY resistance to their own starbolts, so that's also worth noting.

Finally, as I mentioned before, their powers are extremely emotion driven. If they're depressed or feel discouraged, they find themselves significantly weaker than usual. Like, almost human levels, actually, as shown in the episode where Star explains her powers to Robin. It's logical to assume Blackfire also follows these rules, but to a lesser degree as she's forced herself to be emotionally dead to promote her criminal activities, despite being a Tamaranian.

Next, I'd like to go over the full list of Tamaranian abilities:

Starbolts
Fired from a fist or the eyes, these are super hot bolts of plasma, capable of burning through metal like a hot knife through butter. Very dangerous and created by channeling a Tamaranian's "burning passion" or whatever she calls it. Unlike Star, Blackfire seems to be capable of creating extremely durable barriers, waves of energy, and force fields with this ability.

FTL Flight
Yes. Flight faster than the speed of light. Cuz Tamaran. This is used by channeling "boundless joy."

Environmental Durability
Based on the Tamaranian's remaining energy, capable of surviving environments such as lava, underwater environments, outer space, heavily irradiated environments, etc etc.

Superhuman Agility and Reflexes
Superhuman Durability
Superhuman Strength
Language Assimilation through Lip Contact

Hope this helps a bit.

She can still enjoy being a criminal and doing what she wants. Regardless this gives me more of an idea of how to write her powers should I decide to stick with Blackie.

I will continue under the assumption that they will be left well alone for the most part- not counting the scaling back part which I was probably going to have to do anyway. Danke

No problem. However, it is worth noting that apparently they lose memories of the other canons.

So...Blackie wouldn't remember Star or the Titans.

So WTF is the point, IMO.

Like anyone actually follows that Troll

I like Blackfire. She was one of my fave villains~

But this has gone off topic. My question as mostly been answered sooo- mission accomplished!
