    ...I don't even know what class to start with

    Didn't DC comics have a D6 game?

    Aren't most systems pretty bad when dealing with abilities that are based solely on mental constructs that differ from situation to situation?

    Flare - perhaps you could try Green Ronin's Mutants and Masterminds Second Ed. system, since that's still technically d20.

    Or does it have to be from particular systems?

    Given that it was d6 or d20, I'm guessing any of the Star Wars systems.

    GURPS or M&M would be a little too straight forward :p

    Man, if I were up with my DC lore at all, I would give this a shot, but the most I know is that Superman is the dude in blue, and Batman would kind of be a downer to hang out with.

    Marvel's where I'm at.

    OK, since GL didn't work, how about a build forMace Windu's Astromech. Don't think stats for that have been made in any of the core books.

    For some reason I was running out of room on my last post, so included is an internally mounted thruster pack for short flights to avoid danger.

    No sensor periscope?

    Congadulations! You win. Now, you get to decide what's our next character challenge?

    Oh, argh of course, the Periscope from the trash compactor! Silly me!

    Hows about a 6D version of Logan aka Wolverine of the X-Men? Even the youngsters ought to have an easy time of coming up with an answer to this challange.

    How about a multiple choice question?
    Your choice: Jarrod from The Pretender (too obscure?) or Grissom from CSI.

    Oh man I used to love the pretender... That was a good show. Does the system matter? Because I don't know d6 if I did something with d20 is that acceptable?

    Sure. D6, D20, Hero/Champions, cyberpunk... whatever works.

    It was a network (NBC?) series created in the mid-late 90s. "The Centre" is a think-tank organization that abducted "Jarrod" from his parents because of his brilliant intuitive and deductive abilities. After brainwashing him over the years and training him, refining his skills, they start to use his abilities to solve problems and sell the information to less-that-reputable people, frequently for immoral use. Once he realizes what has been done to him, he breaks out and starts using his abilities to help others. His genius intellect lets him convince other people that he is whoever or whatever he impersonates. "Are you a Doctor?" "I am today." He plays the agent of Justice/Revenge for the little-guy/gal, and uses the Villain of the Week's methods against him/her usually in an ironic way. And incidentally, The Centre has a team of people hunting him down, trying to recapture him for their own further use.
    First two seasons are good. Third is OK. Forth gets a little shakey. First movie is still shakey. 2nd movie is awful.
    Cross-over episodes with "The Profiler" are incrediblly lame.

    I had wondered what had happened to the series. I was intrigued at how the main female intagenist remined me of Emma Peel (Diana Riggs)[SIC?] from the Avengers on BBC's Themes Productions, back in the 1960s. Oh but I date myself. LOL.

    No takers? Should I post a different character to build?

    Ok, let's try this: Who can give me a build for George Bush Jr?
    That should be a challenge.
