Some days I get hopped up on caffeine and sugar and I start dreaming up weird projects. Today in my head I randomly dreamed up an all-female, dessert-themed super-villain team called The Decadents. They are made up of
Terrormisu – the evil mastermind and leader of the group. Wields an array of mental powers, used to strike fear into her enemies. Real name: Susan (Sue) Agresta. Country of origin: Italy.
Death by Chocolate – Devious assassin. Real name: CoCo Chaput. Country of origin: France.
Poundcake and Cheesecake – Former model and fitness guru (Cheesecake) who transforms into a seven-foot-tall bruiser with super strength (Poundcake). Only other known alias: Ginger Snapps. Country of origin: Ireland.
Crime Brûlée – The technologist and weapons designer. Wears power armor powered by anti-matter. Real name: Jessica Favreau. Country of origin: unknown.
Ice Scream – Ice and cold generating blaster type. Rich heiress. Serial killer who flash froze bodies to throw off time of death in criminal analysis. Real name: Vivian Cross. Country of origin: United States.
Absorbet – A metamutation with the ability to absorb energy and redirect it. Absorbing too much energy causes her cells to elasticize, giving her a moderately stretchable body she is still learning to control. Real name: Marianne Hughes. Country of origin: England.
Sinnamon Roll – Former race car driver and wheelman (wheel woman?) who developed super speed after exposure to a rare radioactive compound with improper containment that she was helping smuggle. Real name: Camila Sosa. Country of origin: Brazil.
Demon Meringue – Mistress of the occult who rose to power in (of all places) Vatican City. She was responsible for causing the possession of a number of Catholic cardinals before being defeated. A powerful ward now prevents her from ever re-entering the country. Country of origin: Italy/Vatican City Alias: “Sister” Maria Perfetti. Real name unknown.
Paina Cotta – Sadistic bladed weapon specialist. Master of the kris, a curved knife. A highly skilled former mercenary. Real name: Ni Gusti Ratih. Country of origin: Bali.
Bananas Foster – A mute, gadget-wielding lunatic with a love and penchant for explosives and slapstick. Real name: Unknown. Country of origin: Unknown.
In the good ol’ days I’d have created all of these characters in City of Heroes/City of Villains. Alas, the game is no more, and I’m left only to picture it in my head. If some artist with a comic book slant ever wanted to take on a story involving this group, I’d love to work on it with them.
Anybody come up with any other worthy additions to the team?
