Solo Supers Sandbox Character: Raul Montanez

For my solo game, I have decided to go with ICONS for now. Guardians actually looked really interesting and I may give that a run for a different game. But for now, I'll stick with what's somewhat familiar to me, even if it is FATE based.

Anyways, the elevator pitch of the solo game setting:

"It is 2017 and the world has had superheroes for over a century. Great people with incredible powers that perform mighty feats of heroism patrol the cities of Earth, protecting up from those that would do harm. But all superheroes, especially new ones, have to learn and train from somewhere. There are many great academies to train young adults in the career of superhero.  
This is not one of those academies.
For those that didn't make the grades, have the money, or pass the entrance test, but still want to try to help, there are several community colleges that can pick you up. And that's where our story begins, with a young Miami native named Raul Montanez. He enrolls into Hero Southern Community in Miami, looking to get into the world of superheroes, no matter what it takes."

Raul is a third generation Cuban-American born and raised in Hialeah. He's the first person in his family to manifest a super power, with the ability to control the weather. Raul tried for the Standardized Hero Assessment Exam to get into the big schools, but a lack of control in his power and inability to pay for school meant that he had to go to community college to make his dream come true.

He's 18 and somewhat chunky with a tan complexion and short, curly black hair. A bit on the shorter side.


That's all I have time for today. Long shift at the restaurant, so not much time otherwise. ICONS should be an interesting fit to play. I'll also explain later why I went with college student as opposed to teenage academy like Teen Titans or X-Men.
