Thoughts on Super heroes in WWW 2

The League of Super Soldiers:
1949 America, Roswell New Mexico:

The Rift Wars have been raging for the last six months; most of South America is under the control of the New Reich, Nazi super science and occult magic have the allies on the run. America’s military has created some advances in science and weapons, but not fast enough to counter the push from the Nazis. America has had a history of vigilantism, with masked heroes battling thugs and crime lords in their local towns and cities, some even using super sciences not know by the American government. One Hero, Captain America was a military experiment to create a super soldier, but failed to produce but one trooper. Now with this new aggression, a new soldier is needed and an all points bulletin has been sent to these amazing heroes. Here’s is a list of the chosen few who will bring the fight to the enemy on all fronts!

Captain America:

Steve Rogers was born on July 4, 1917 in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City, to Irish immigrants Sarah and Joseph Rogers. By the early 1940s, before America's entry into World War II, Rogers is a tall but scrawny fine arts student specializing in illustration. Disturbed by the rise of the Third Reich, Rogers attempts to enlist, only to be rejected due to his poor constitution. A U.S. Army officer looking for test subjects offers Rogers the chance to serve his country by taking part in a top-secret defense project — Operation: Rebirth, which seeks to develop a means of creating physically superior soldiers. Rogers volunteers for the research and, after a rigorous selection process, is chosen as the first human test subject for the Super-Soldier serum developed by the scientist "Dr. Josef Reinstein," later retroactively changed to a code name for the scientist Abraham Erskine.

The night Operation: Rebirth is implemented, Rogers receives injections and oral doses of the Super-Soldier formula. He is then exposed to a controlled burst of "Vita-Rays" that activate and stabilize the chemicals in his system. Although the process is arduous physically, it successfully alters his physiology almost instantly from its relatively frail form to the maximum of human efficiency, greatly enhancing his musculature and reflexes. Erskine declares Rogers to be the first of a new breed of man, a "nearly perfect human being."

At that moment, a Nazi spy reveals himself and shoots Erskine. Because the scientist had committed the crucial portions of the Super-Soldier formula to memory, it cannot be duplicated. Rogers kills the spy in retaliation and vows to oppose the enemies of America.

The United States government, making the most of its one super-soldier, re-imagines him as a superhero who serves as both a counter-intelligence agent and a propaganda symbol to counter Nazi Germany's head of terrorist operations, the Red Skull. To that end, Rogers is given a uniform modeled after the American flag (based on Rogers's own sketches) a bulletproof shield, a personal side arm, and the codename Captain America.


Lobster Johnson:

Lobster Johnson was a vigilante who worked in secret in New York City during the 1930s. Although the public believes that The Lobster was only the hero of pulp serials and comics, he was a real man who faced gangsters as well as paranormal threats. Johnson had a reputation for violence, such as killing mobsters and burning his trademark lobster claw symbol into their foreheads.

The Slayer:

is a young female bestowed with mystical powers that originate from the essence of a pure-demon, which gives her superhuman senses, strength, speed, endurance, agility, and healing in the fight against forces of darkness. She also receives prophetic dreams in the few hours that she sleeps.

The Prophecy of the slayer states, "Into each generation a girl is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. She is the Slayer."

Angelus:

Angelus is a vampire who is cursed with a soul, a punishment designed to make him suffer for his past evil. Recruited by the military to save a sunken submarine, he is used on missions where occult incursions are expected and are only at night.

The Doctor:

The Doctor was initially shrouded in mystery. All that was known about him in the early days was that he was an eccentric alien traveler of great intelligence who battled injustice while exploring time and space in an unreliable old time machine called the TARDIS, an acronym for Time And Relative Dimension(s) In Space. As it appears much larger on the inside than on the outside, the TARDIS has been described by The Doctor as "dimensionally transcendental" and, due to a malfunction of its Chameleon Circuit, is stuck in the shape of a 1950s-style British police box. The Doctor lends a hand when he deems that the whole universe is in danger, this is few and far between, but when he does he uses his vast knowledge and experience, but no violence.
