Winged heroes are quite a tradition in comics. For example:
And then there's...
So anyway, I think Dogwood City should have one, too. The Owl fits in nicely, as he is known to be from the American south. He's a librarian.
Don't let the edumacation fool you, though...he's a southern boy to the core, as we can see on the very next page:
He and his dad live in a cabin in the swamp, you see. In what seems to be his only appearance, the Owl is shown to be able to fly around 200 mph, to communicate via radio with his father, and to use a haunting war cry of "Hoo! Hoo!"
It's tempting to chuckle at the Owl, but trust me, this hero thing isn't a game to him...
Here he is at the wiki, and here he is for gaming:
Real name: Jack Isaac
5 Hero Dice
5 Hero Dice
Wing slap (melee) +5 (1D damage)
Using his winged suit, the Owl can fly at up to 200 miles per hour. The suit also contains a communication device.
At the beginning of combat, the Owl can give off a war cry as a free action. Enemies who fail to succeed at a saving throw lose their first round of action.
Hmm, he's a librarian from the country. I like this guy.ReplyDelete
Haha...thought you might!Delete
Nice. I like that he is a librarian. Seems like a good choice for a super back then.ReplyDelete
Really enjoying this series.

Thanks man! Enjoying your adventures as well!Delete
Something about those wings covering his arms make him seem a little less hero-like. They hide his biceps perhaps?ReplyDelete
Haha...I think I agree! I usually give the brawler types a punching attack...but it wasn't really clear that the Owl is capable of that. So, he got a "wing slap." That does seem...yeah, a little less hero-like...Delete
